"Syriza about the machines that make our civilization run and the people Whose ingenuity created them when I strike the cue ball on a billiards table. It moves about the table, bumping into the walls and the other balls. And I can describe exactly where all the balls will be as time moves forward. That's because billiard balls like planets, cars and old socks live in a world subject to natural laws, like the conservation of energy. These classical laws are deterministic. If I know where everything is located, and how it's moving at a particular instant, then at least in theory, I can calculate exactly where everything will be at any time in the future. Causal determinism espouses the position that the universe operates much like a billiards table. The idea had been around in various forms for a long time. But it was Newton who in the late 17th century breathed new life into it. With his laws of motion and four centuries, many well known engineers and scientists embraced the concept. It was not until the early 20th century that quantum mechanics upset the apple cart in the quantum mechanical world. Things apparently happened at random, for example, uranium atoms spontaneously emit radiation without any provocation. There's no action to cause this reaction to some, This was utter sacrilege. Einstein was a vocal critic of such non deterministic beliefs, leading him to utter his now famous phrase, God does not play dice with the universe. But then in 1957 graduate student named Hugh Everett offered a way out of the quantum mechanical predicament. It wasn't necessary to give up determinism. We simply had to accept an infinite number of universes, branching off from one another as random events both do and do not occur. It sounds preposterous for years after every published his paper, the idea was ridiculed and ignored by the scientific community. But ultimately, there was no ignoring his mathematics. What came to be known as the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics? Now has a large following by some polls. It's the most accepted world view of quantum mechanics. Today, in the eyes of many physicists, it's simply the least strange of all the interpretations out there. Among other things, it doesn't require that we abandoned determinism. For many engineers and scientists, It's reassuring to believe in a mechanical universe. Science couldn't exist if the world was haphazard, but is the price we pay something straight from the realm of science fiction. An infinite number of parallel universes. Or is that really such.

Fresh update on "hugh" discussed on Hugh Hewitt
"I've talked this morning at length with Doctor with Ambassador Michael Oren, former Israeli Ambassador United States that is now up at the podcast interview with Hugh Hewitt. He called me up today called today That update is packaged and over the podcast. Former Secretary of state Michael Pompeo joined me. Florida Senator Rick Scott, former senator Jim talent. Now I'm joined by Michael share of the New York Times chief White House correspondent for that August organization. Good morning, Michael. Good morning U You wrote yesterday about the domestic economic situation. It does seem like an avalanche of bad news hit team Biden at exactly the wrong time to move forward, their quote Legacy plan. Yeah. Sorry. Yes, Yes. I'm sorry. Sorry. Somebody was beeping in and I'm going to ignore it. Um, Yeah, no, it it does seem like there's ah, kind of, you know, serious series of bad news that is the You know, kind of getting in the way of what what the Biden administration is trying to do, Um, the the gas prices, the situation in Israel. Um there, you know that. I think the only thing You can say that was sort of positive about the meeting that took place between the president and the leadership in Congress was that it didn't you know, sort of break down into a screaming match like some of them did during the Trump administration. There was a moment after that meeting between the leadership and the president, where the president talked about meeting with the Republicans. Let's play the cut, where he forgets who the House GOP is. Look You guys got that cut? I don't know what I think It's eight. We're having attacks take up their adolescence. I'm encouraged not just because Oh, Solid meeting. With with The Republican leader in the house, and with With Mitch, you are Senator McConnell, who I've known a long, long time and work with that yet, Michael, I forget people's names every day. Like that guy in the booth next to me. I don't know what his name is. You've been producing the show for 20 years. I'll remember, but yeah, it's tough on Biden, isn't it to have moments like that? Yeah, it is. I mean, look, I I I have somebody who stumbled on air myself a bunch like I'm somewhat sympathetic to anybody. You you. We all know that, right? Um, I do think actually, though, it there's a There's a little bit of a deeper thing that that underscores, which is that, to the extent that Biden talks all the time about his relationships with people he does not. Have any kind of a relationship that we know of with with McCarthy and you know that you know there is, um, you know, that was one of the things that was sort of underscored. The meeting yesterday was that McCarthy much more even than Senator McConnell came into that meeting, determined to shift the conversation right to talk about high gas prices to talk about inflation. To talk about Israel to talk about the colonial pipeline and gas prices. And so you you could see this the the reality there, Which is that, um, you know, not much, not much gotten progress got made, And that's partly because Those two men don't have any sort of relationship. Leader. McConnell, in fact, came out and said this in terms of changing the subject. He also wanted to lay down some markers. Cut number 14. We're not interested.

Why good ideas get trapped in the valley of death -- and how to rescue them | TED-Ed - TEST
"It's ted talks daily. I'm elise hugh. Birthday is thursday april twenty seconds so we thought it would be a great time to share another lesson from our friends at ted. Ed this is part of a video series designed to cut through the complexity around climate change and explain the science in a clear way. It's all inspired by bill. Gates's new book how to avoid a climate disaster. This lesson is about how a lot of the smartest solutions to reduce. Carbon pollution actually already exist and how they're getting stuck in the valley death. How can we get them out of this trap. You can watch all seven lessons for free at ed dot ted dot com slash plan for zero. That's plan f. o. R. zero wants a gourd. Ted talks daily is brought to you by lulu lemon. I am a longtime runner and my attitude about workout clothing is i don't want to have to think about it at all. And that's why. I run in lululemon these days. I work out a lot alone. But i prefer doing it with friends. I have such great memories of really bonding with whoever. I'm running with my friends. They trust lululemon to my running buddy rob whereas the men's lululemon running shirt that comes in short sleeve or long and he says it's so light so dry so breathable.

They've passed every test cleared every huddled jumped through every hoop now. All that remains is to unleash them on the wait. What's yes there's one more challenge. They must now cross the valley of death. All new products must pass through here before they reach the market. Many never make it out and sometimes that's okay if they don't work don't feel a need all for any number of other reasons but inventions. That could help address massive global issues. Also face this risk that's because technology's potential isn't the only factor that determines whether it will succeed. The valley of death is especially risky for innovations involving complex physical objects as opposed to software and for those in highly regulated industries like medicine building materials and transportation regulations and other obstacles aren't inherently bad. They're often designed to keep people safe but they do tend to scare off investors and that's what traps good ideas in the valley of gaffe that funding dries up before they can become profitable one of the fields where this problem is most pressing. Today is zero carbon technologies that is central to our future because they will help us eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and stabilize our climate but they also have features that make them particularly vulnerable in the valley of death. Let's look why that is and how we can change it. All new technologies must go through a development fans before they can become profitable for zero carbon technologies. The costs of this phase are high. The time lines are long and in spite of the good they can do. Demand is often low because they can require big changes in both infrastructure and consumer behavior for example electric heat pumps don't burn fossil fuels and when you factor in savings on energy use off cost competitive with gas furnaces but only change that heating and cooling systems every few decades direct air capture technologies meanwhile remove co two directly from the atmosphere. We need these technologies to reach our emission goals and several of them have already been proven to work but they're at risk of getting trapped in the valley of death because they're expensive. This creates a vicious cycle because the best way to know a costs is by well practicing making more of a product and refining it but high initial costs scare off investors and without their money companies can't continue to develop that technologies and can't ultimately decrease cost. Fortunately there's a way to break this cycle. Governments can help the gap when private investors won't fund technologies with such a high potential for social benefit. This isn't just theoretical. In the one thousand nine hundred ninety s functioning solar panels existed but one widely adopted because of that cost to change this. Germany offered government loans to companies creating soda piles and legally obligated utility companies to buy electricity produced using renewable energy the us and china followed suit by financing major solar panel projects. The cost of solar has dropped almost ninety percent since two thousand nine making it much easier to adopt a similar thing happened for wind energy. During the oil crisis of the nineteen seventies denmark invested in wind power and started taxing winds fossil fuel based competitors other countries took similar steps and as more wind power was generated worldwide. The costs of this technology dropped dramatically. These success stories tell us that government initiatives walk initiatives like boosting spending on research and development offering tax and loan incentives to stops that want to develop zero carbon technologies and consumers who want to buy them and putting a price on carbon emissions. We need governments to do what they did. For solar and wind for many more innovations at the end of the day ideas and inventions alone can't solve our most daunting problems. Policies and markets have to be shaped so the most promising
Barrier Island Prepares for More Sea-Level Rise, Worsening Storms
"Teague island is known for its beaches hiking birdwatching and wild horses the uninhabited island off of maryland. And virginia's coast drew almost two and a half million visitors last year but acid sands are shifting underfoot when a storm hits. Strong winds and waves can carve inlets into the island and change the shape of beaches and storm. Surges can wash sand from the ocean side beach farther inland so over time. The island shifts. The northern portion of the island has moved about a half mile to the west in about the last forty years. Hugh hawthorne is superintendent of acid island national seashore. He says some movement is normal but as sees rise and storms get more intense. The rate of change is speeding up so the park service is working to adapt. Its facilities is now making restrooms and lifeguard towers portable so they can be moved to new locations as the island shifts. And hawthorne's says the park. Service plans to relocate.

Pack and then you'd have something that sat on the table and something went up to your ear a contraption and at the end of the day by a couple of things miniaturising speaker and microphone but also more importantly taking the power way down That was able to really enable it to go to be a worn device up at the air so in hearing aids.

Because i i think back about shoo grant you remember when he got busted and i thought i thought this at that point. He must've been like the biggest star in the world. That's what i remember. But the truth was he hadn't even released in american film yet. He was just this guy that was at the tip of the spear of total media hype and i talked to him about it and he completely knows that but but it was sort of interesting talking to him because i didn't know what to expect. He was an istanbul. There's a tremendous time difference. It was the sun was setting there and And he was having a cocktail it seemed and he was cracking me up. He's a very dark self deprecating man. I enjoy very much. So that's going.

My brother and i would go there to scotland. Where am i gonna lived in. He taught us to shoot Not animals but German you're extremely politically incorrect. He was kind of quarry nearby and he'd set up these faces of basically germans and he'd he'd tape a little pill capsules of fake blood on their noses and then we'd be two hundred yards away and we'd have to try and hit their faces at their noses. It's not hard. Children are entertained these days we we loved it. Did you see germans as your enemy growing up. Even though the war had ended years ago. Well the the british avoid had strange relationship with the germs. But no not at all. I admire the germans now but my grandfather And like excellent german friends but i. My grandfather felt very strongly by germans. But then he. He bore grudges. He wouldn't talk to anyone who campbell since the The campbell's massacred the mcdonald's in sixteen ninety.

To co starred with meryl streep and florence foster jenkins started with drew barrymore and music and lyrics the film that gave him his start as a real star was for weddings and a funeral. So for people who haven't seen the final episode yet of the undoing. I should say in the undoing. You play somebody who may or may not be a- villain who may or may not be a killer in paddington to you play. A comedic villain. The only animated character in the film as paddington bear. And so you play. Phoenix buchanan. a washed. Up actor looking to revive your career and make some money. And i wanna play a scene in which you're performing at fair paddington is in the audience and when you're looking for volunteer from the audience you call him onstage. It's the first time you meet him. So let's hear the scene and this is this. Is you grant as the washed up actor and bad guy and paddington. The beer is forced by been wishaw. I suppose you know who i am. Oh yes you are a very famous actor. Oku all used to be now. You do. Dog food commercials. Man has to eat dog food a day. Funny anyway they do. Say that madame calls labor's all your dreams come true so if you had one wish tonight what would it be. Oh that's easy. I'd like to get my aunt. Lucy birthday present. I've got my eye on an old pop up. Because london made by madame kozlova as it happens the only problem is it's rather expensive so i need to get my pores on an awful lot of money but i'm not sure that we can all of us that we can. Of course offer you. look fun. So hugh grant at the end. That rules a fun thing. You do have a similar sound in the undoing in the final episode dirt. That's true europe's right. Is that a thing for you. Is that something to do as a kid. Well four. in the non spoiler bit of this took the last episode too much but but the does contain the song in. That was a song from my childhood. I improvised that while we were shooting that scene. So yes that's from my childhood and in paddington. Either and i'm just being silly was a fun to play. A comedic villain. We'll probably more comfortable generally speaking when some comedy around. That's where i began you know in the early eighties. I was doing silly voices as living. I for radio commercials and sketches on television. I had my little comedy group so returning to that more of that sort of stuff nowadays feels like Familiar and comfortable. I didn't know you'd voiced commercials in probably their commercials. We didn't see in the us. So what kind of commercials were they. What kind of voices did you have to do radio commercials and they were written by me and my two friends and they were produced by us and very often acted buyers and the all sorts of city. Things i the we we. We used to do one which sounded british films from the nineteen forties. You know when everyone is tipped way and we do others where we were doing west country. Accent my dogs. He's a working dog. That's why he drinks red stripe last year. It was all surreal and extraordinary but that still doing city stuff for a living that become your early resume portfolio. I didn't have a portfolio. We were just messing around really and they went on to do more of that and then one day I had an agent. But i i was not particularly interested in normal acting and he said no. This is where they want to see. Morris i said i don't think so thanks i i. I'm preferring doing what i'm doing. And he said no. Go and my brother who happened to be at home that these a banker said no go. You need some money is living with him. And i wasn't contributing. And i went. And i got that film and i did this and had a little bit of success. And that sort of ice oppose swerved my career away from doing voices two more mainstream acting. There was a merchant. Ivory film wasn't yeah. It was that film. They did after room with a view and it was a based on another enforced. Novel is the one between room with a view and howards end. It was about influenced as secret. Which was that. He was a you know he was gay. And this was back in the beginning of the twentieth century and so he was a manuscript he kept under his bed Or his life was only published posthumously. We use surprised to have a film career extremely flabbergasted very nearly managed to throw it away as well after that film did quite well and we did well at the venice film festival and my two co stars then had a very successful two or three years and i managed to sell loud and just do highly paid terrible miniseries. And very odd. European euro puddings where they'd be written by spagna directed by german english actors. They will often. They never got ready released properly. But cited like fun pretty actresses in it. That i wanted to spend time with them. Did things for all the wrong motives and very much over nearly utterly killed my career before. Suddenly for weddings came along a few years later. The how'd you get the role. Well four weddings was odd because things were pretty bad state in terms of proper acting for me and then the script came through. And i remember calling my agent on and saying. I think there's been a mistake because you sent me a good script and they did have a track record of doing that. They've done it once before. And i had called and said hang on. This is good. You show. It was meant for me and they said no. Sorry tom cruise. That was Jerry maguire have to happen. That's a terrible mistake to make. Yes terrible anyway then. The four winning script came through and it was really funny when richard curtis. who'd written it hated me. And duncan kenworthy who is producing hated me but mike newell who is directing. It thought i was promising. And i got the pod and and that started a whole new thing in my career. Did they hit you as a human.

We tucked ourselves into a quiet little booth that the swanky monkey bar I gotta say he was on the Oprah show many times back in the day but we've never had a chat quite this personal. Okay. FIRST QUESTION DO I have to know? Are. These photoshop. No I wish I in fact I when I look at it I was like, what am I just eat pizza drink beer an Oscar photo shopping showing you can do that I mean I feel like I can like climb them. That is more than at that somebody showed me this and I go that can't be real and that's going to be like I'm going to ask them I have to tell you I did I did a senior? And I was in the scene standing in front of a mirror had showed it off impact everything was off but the mirror was. placed. Clear can say anything. So and I was standing the inbetween saints I told myself. I will never ever look like this again. Hugh Jackman. Catapulted to international stardom in two thousand and the first of the wildly popular x-men movies. He plays Wolverine a powerful animal like mutant best known for his giant metal claws. Now more than a decade since that first film hugh is playing his iconic character for these six time. In the Wolverine. The name is a full time job. He works out nearly three hours a day. Imagine that eating every two hours imagine that at six foot two, he can bench press over three hundred pounds imagine that and wants leg press. You have this amazing ability. You can just do magic with your body is that I've always been fascinated by the physical aspect of acting when I was told acting we did ten hours of movement clauses wake not just dance. But how do use your body and that oversee a lot of actors constraint on the voice and your emotions, but you'll body is a great white communicate so. I, sort of do thrill in whatever the challenges of that physically, and some is for example. Tom Who said to me I, want you to be unrecognizable be any of the movie and then we have to see eighteen years later and I loved the. Challenge of that my wife thinks I'm a little masochistic she thinks. deb I agree with you. Use secret 'cause I read some place that you secretly love working out do you well more and more I like it I liked it more in the last year I have a trainer whose philosophy is not I'm not gonNA kill you every time I'm GonNa make it. So you WANNA do it So. It's not. You know sometimes trying to odd that you just dread going and I haven't tried like that and actually the results mean better. So are you are you training for Wolverine did? You do three hours a day three hours a day. So two thousand and warning in about forty five minutes in the afternoon. Okay. What were you very talking? Get to eat everything. You have six hundred calories a day. In Hollywood yes this is the I literally rang dwayne Johnson. The Rock. Came in I've seen you in some movie I said what's going on? What do I do? And he's he went through the died and I was six thousand calories eating every two hours. Unfortunately. To get six thousand. One Notch. Awesome. But now it's I mean we'll look like chicken breasts. Steamed Broccoli. Ab Some cobs but as you get down to those kind of shots yeah that's when it becomes very scientific. That's when you go slightly less on cobbs I even do a thing called water the hydration, which is what you did for. Did you get Opening scene. Yeah. Yeah. So it it gets a little obsessed I. Probably I'm someone who likes routine and discipline. We'd I kind of revel went of got a a structure. So Wolverine is about bulking up and It's really for me. Yes. Balking leanness Leila's he's Hong. Yeah. Unfortunately, it's hard. He's half animal half human. That's the struggle and that's what's great about the character because we all have the daily battle, the chaotic this is the control, the animal. This is the human that that idea to part of US wants to be free and we do what we wanted, but we live in a civilized society. So it's that I caught me that he embodies fully when you first committed to. that. That's the one thing the debit. To do. Did, you did you do it for the money at first for the audition for the? On here, I mean how many film Odysseus came up? Three every year I held. On please eleven you know whatever? And I never heard of its minimum nothing to me that it a worldwide search and I got three pages and our MME reading and she has a wolverine since his danger he's nostrils flare and snicked. What she can snicked. Kt claws come out of his hands and she all she candidacy. Said this is ridiculous. Your the National Theatre. You can't be having committee. Said you're on your own.

"You're sitting there at Warner brothers. Yeah in an office and the phone rings. No Sam Peter Comes. In and Peter was he was given a mandate to start going down the path of trying to get into adult comedy for Warner Brothers and then he comes the Ozzy's like we have this thing with Mike Tyson and so they already had a sizzle reel. which was Mike Tyson Andrew dice clay? I believe was in it. And maybe it was like Some old PANAPA Ribeira characters would pop up so and then I was like you know. Tyson had appeared in the hangover which I thought that looked very funny to me. I didn't see people haven't seen the hangover. He at least that looked like good use of Mike Tyson. But by the time we were GONNA use it I was like this is lane lane. The it didn't seem funny to me and so I was already to tell Peter no and I did and then because I was like the first time I had turned down a job Bob and then Peter goes please and then I say yes. Wow I was real push. Oh yeah that was easy yes but then it became fun because I did right. I wrote like I five outlines for the first five episodes again just like thinking. This is what I would do to make this funny if you like it. Great if you don't like it I don't care I'm gone and and then lezo liked it He he must have seen the outlines and he liked it and we went into production and then it became Super Fun to work John once we got the cast in place and it's really is very fun to work on and I I find it very funny. I mean it's like it hasn't been McDonald. Who wouldn't laugh at McDonald? You'd have to be crazy. Yeah so you wrote some outlines laser light that you started writing scripts and then then so I guess we'd probably written like five scripts before that fateful encounter with Mike Tyson at his house at five in the morning. I'd never because we were recording any of them yet. We were just writing. A maybe proof of of concepts guests staff wrote half dozen scripts. Yeah Yeah I think that's right and then it was time like okay. Well we can really do this. That's record so you got news that it had been an ordered. Yeah and then you have to go record Mike House in Vegas. Yeah that was the shocker. But then from then on he became it became fun and I love of Mike Tyson. It'd be I would be one of those people if Mike Tyson goes crazy. And he like King Kong murders a bunch of people And takes you know goes goes crazy with his fist full of unbridled anger like the hulk. If that happens I would be one of those jobs on the local news saying. That's not the Mike like I know. What is it about him that I don't? He seems like he seems like so not like an athlete. Like I feel like you. You'd think of these ex-professional athletes and in a they want to still be. And I don't know that many I feel like I just seeing interviews. They look like they still expect and want you to think there that still that athletes and their Mike Tyson. It seems like no part of him. Identifies with being a boxer or an athlete. He just seems like This this person and he has kind of a fun affect about him. It's like it's like he makes no sense to me. He comes off nerdy and nice and sweet and he's got. He's kind of sensitive while at the same time being very insensitive. He doesn't notice Shit But like he'll he'll say he says thank you to the people in the gentlest way. He'll take a picture with anyone he he he's he seems like I don't know he had a transformation. How yeah how? How does that square with his general perception with his history? I know you know it's like if you if you walk around with him like the few times have been. Oh one time we were in a New York comic con and it seemed like a fight almost happened with the guys from What has been the Boondocks is the guy the Guy Michael Jai White? Yeah he's like a big fighting guy right. I'm not sure I think he is. I think he's like a Whatever you call it Martin mixed martial loss and he's an actor and and crucially? He seems to have portrayed Mike Tyson and the Mike Tyson unauthorized story that aired on like ABC ladies throw walking down a hallway. The Mike Tyson crew and the boondocks career whatever's walking the other fucking way and it was Li- it it seemed like the sharks and the jets. Except who cares about the rest of the fucking cartoon nerds on either team. It's just this one big guy and then Mike Tyson Jason and then it got so weird and the Guy Tommy Davidson the comedian on Boondocks. He seemed to try to defuse. I use it. He did the COMEDIANS role. He was like you know. Let's make it funny. Let's take down the temperature. And then he was traveling and that did not work at all and I feel like at one point. He was Mike. Tyson sort of gently moved him to the side and it was like a chest to chest yet and then my wife Rachel at the time is like oh she was wanting to it was like we gotta get the Fuck Outta here. We're all going to be beaten to a pulp and tornado like that. This is about to get and then like somehow Mike. I don't know what happened. You could barely hear them. He was I think he was angry that that this guy had portrayed them in a bad light yeah and then I think this guy I was like tough to didn't want to back down probably wasn't this guy's fall so as I just one of those things so what happened kind of nothing. It was a lot of heart's racing. Yeah you know you thought that maybe this was going to be. That could be a snap of our show is going to end here in the right in the moment. Wow now and that was before it aired. And you've moved on moved on down the hall. Yeah wow you went on down the hall. How has the perception of the show Benefa- people been responsive Syrup You know it's funny. It's like all adult swim shows. I'm old enough that I don't know any person that barely even knows what adult swim is. So you know what it's like a younger audience so young people. I'm sure love it. I don't mix with any of those people so I don't know mix solo now. I'm our age and older. Do Young people know Mike Tyson. I don't I don't I think if anything they just think he's like a character on a show now I don't think any of them know about the show. Yeah they they probably get confused. George Foreman I don't think there's any real you know censor who was just a A character yeah. He's a toothless lion. That's what he called himself. He was like. Oh we're trying to get a vendor Holyfield for one thing And of Andrew Holyfield was like holding out for a million dollars or something because he felt like to do a voice he should be paid like a boxing match. And then it was like Alexandra and then Mike was Mike. Tyson was actually being very funny. But he's he's like I told the Vander Vander. We're all lions man. We don't get our teeth anymore. We we gotta just do we got to just live our lives man and then then Mike is like laughing. He's like oh these old boxers they always want a lot of money and then we just the deal. He'll never happen so we didn't write a thing with the manner holyfield which was just as well because no one in the audience gives shit about of Holyfield. How about norm norms? The funniest person. I think he's the funniest person on earth. I thought that when I was you know younger norm MacDonald. How did he come into the show he just you know weirdly the Peter had worked with Peter Girardi had worked with Some of the people norm nixes with particularly the guy who played saul and solve the Moolman. Josh Gardner Josh Gardner. Who I though? Because he's the first cousin of another ground guy of my era nat faxon and Nat faxon and Jim rash or writing partners. They they like Oscar winners. They re they won an Oscar for the descendants. But they're they're both very sketch comedy kind of guys and Jim rash at that point had become also the dean on community and then was on our show. But Josh Gardner whose Nats First Cousin was norms opener on many tours for stand up so there was this connection to josh to norm through Josh that Peter when he called and we offered him the role of pigeon I think he was receptive that he otherwise might not have been because of that. Little Bit of familiarity with Peter a little bit a shorthand and then he came in and my God. He did the funniest thing the first first time nor did not want to do his normal voice on the show so he came in and he did a thing. That was making me laugh so hard because but but that's a problem if you think someone's so funny everything you do you think is they. Do you think it's fine. But he was basically doing his impression of Sterling Hayden The Guy in the general in Dr Strangelove so norm is doesn't sound like norm for the first like three pages of the script and Peter Girardi the the executive at Warner Brothers gets this Ashen look on his face like we've hired norm MacDonald to be nor McDonnell. No one's GonNa you know what this fucking thing is. It's like an impression of a guy from nineteen sixty but I was laughing so hard because it was so funny and then it was my job to tell me that we didn't want that and it was terrible. I was so like embarrassed. Oh my God. Even more norm brought his mother to the record. A norm has got to be so. The mother is like a grandmother type aged person. She's a little old lady very sweet. She's in the voice booth. He comes in. I'm like Oh my God. This is MacDonald this is going to be so great. He begins reading the first bit of dialogue. And he's doing it in a voice that doesn't sound anything like norm McDonald. Why why was that choice? Made you think his own creative uzes and you know what's funny is it's like he was right. It was very funny. Do you think he didn't WANNA be nor McDonald's routes will probably I think he like I think he's got like a and I get it because then it's like McDonald's and he writes his own material whatever. He's in charge of his career if he sounds like Norma Donald and he makes a joke and I've written the joke in the joke sucks. It's embarrassing for norm MacDonald. Everyone's like McDonald's does not funny anymore cartoon but he's going to do in a funny voice that no one will recognize right preserves. I'm telling you laughed. Hired at this performance of his because it was something it was is also correct. It was a great choice do you haven't I bet we. We must unless they unless like all things they pressed a race. I don't know But it was like but also I to get the audience wouldn't have gotten so you are learning this of this decision in real time studio with Norman his mom. Yes and Peters who saying okay. Let's see what we did one script and Peter. Let's take a break and then I just said I said I blame the network and I said is this all right Peter if we just say and then I said I kept saying they and I'm like they want you to be norm. They really do. And how did that. Go over He. He seemed he seemed like the person who's like. I've heard this same line. Fuck it. I'll the DUMB corporation is wrong. But I'll do it whatever..

"Petroleum p played a dinosaur. People want to know Howie Tower. Works like how how to stop the stop. Motion part is actually so fantastic. It's a it's like candy to me DO I. So get it It's appeal because there's something magical about watching these stupid dolls And I even I've written a sketch for star Star Wars and it was about the Wamba. Yeah and it was like Glueck pulls into a gas station and his swing fighter. I decided they gas stations and then like the womp there and the is like he's having a shitty life ever since his arms cut off and like he he parks on the wrong side of the thing. The gas tank is on the run A- and then he drives around to the other side and then he drops his keys and he has trouble with the gas. 'cause he has one arm it's also hard. Life is so hard and Luke's is just watching it. It and he feels so bad about what happened. And that that Chris McKay directed that one I think. Are you a star wars fan. I like star wars or peer pressure. Star here is there and and certainly know what the fuck you're talking about. You know the names of all the little animals and shit. No I was going through empire strikes back but even the third one I was like they seem so stupid. Though e walks I was like oh you lost the plot I love the I two though. But then there's like six more now. There's all these other fucking these other things you have to pretend to to like star wars. No I I think what ended up happening. Thank God is there was no hiding my ignorance. They the robot chicken guys have decided to think. It's funny that I don't know stuff and so now it's at least are on the table and they just laugh so now it's like I'm the old the old man who doesn't know it. He doesn't know any references now. The old man on the staff Jesus like there so they don't work at all. None of it works. I don't and have any John Bolton's very proud. That did come back in I did. He didn't occupy space in the public sphere later on in life. But you know I'm always either way ahead of my time in a useless way or it's something they just don't they don't get there. They're like what is this what we have have no reason for this so you started on the show. Yeah at the beginning of the show. Yes and then you were there for how long I breath well. It was unclear to me how they really worked. I think I was in the early days to me. I was like a robot. Chicken regular writer. In point of fact I think they hired lots the people in between I would work for like six weeks a year and then another year would pass and get it back invited back to robot chicken and do another six weeks so you get invited in. Do you feel like you'd have to prepare Get yourself up to date with not really because I found. I found a technique that works for me. What was that the man Seth in their desperation to to fill the shows goes with the garbage? They put the shows. They would have a dry erase board and on this address for the be all these stupid titles of of movies pop culture crap and toys that they loved so I could sit there and look at the list look it up go straight to wikipedia find out what it was and like if actually there's a sort of interesting story so how long were you there before you bailed on chicken. I think I would always due robot chicken. I did the Star Wars specials. I did the DC specials I did a Batmans in DC on the DC special. The song is called sailing. I just thought it was funny because green lantern who like if they go into space greenland would always have to do is ring for Batman and the and the people that couldn't travel in space and it looks so embarrassing. Like their the way they got to the bat interstellar battle embarrassing and I thought that so my idea for the the sketch was Batman. Talk to him about a different vehicle. Could he choose a different vehicle than just this. Fear the green sphere and he chose a sailboat. And then I kinda. I tried to write a rocky song that was about sailing and he just relaxed mood. So you didn't really bail you. Just do it whenever I can whenever you could something yes. And then what came next stumbled onto Meiteis so then after this is all before saul no Saul Saul is after robot chicken maybe the first or second writing job Robusta Cycle they call them here for like six weeks. Then I wrote on Sol then. I acted on salt when we shot and I played one of the people suit in the outfits. Listen I was in one of those outfits for about three hours. It's something else I was. It was terrible I was in it the whole time but I was like I was having in such a fun time and I really thought it was like could potentially be something then. We would get the scripts. I kinda thought like I think we we blew it but scripts erupts. Yeah there's too much there's too much too much story that no one cared about too much plot that you had to kind of follow and then you weren't really following like he didn't stay simple enough. I think I think you've got to to fucking crazy collapsed on. It's all. Yeah I think so but I had such a fun time acting. It was very fun and then did you play. I played a budget. I played Bertram. Who was like a guy in a moment so I was in that big with the fake? Oh by the way at this point in time I believe in Hollywood proper Hollywood. They have things called fat suits Well our production did not. We had a thing called a beanbag chair which was like taped to me to create fat. So yeah it was like worse though. It's a low budget fads. It really was and then then I played a guy named the senior Baltimore which was just like a Mustache Guy I don't remember what he was about. And then I I played Thomas Jefferson and then supposedly Mike Laszlo liked that and I came back to me. I heard that that the that the adult swim brass which you might have been apart. They were like that's the show. That's the show. Yeah the Thomas Jefferson so then I thought Oh my God. I'm finally being recognized. I'm going to be the star of the spin up and I thought this will work so well and then that proceeded to be just like a car wreck young. A young person's guide to history watched. I watched a little bit of one because I had to put together a real for something acting real three years ago ago and I watched a little bit of it and I've found parts of it amusing But not the whole it seemed like a way worse version and drunk history history. It's I think it's like two people wanted to do a thing about history and one person did it in a funny way and we did it in unfunny. Well you know that You play the role of Thomas is Jefferson completely inspired Amilton yeah PROB-. Yeah no he's he's been on the record the lin-manuel wow. He saw that show and he was like it. There is a there's a I have an idea. There's a spark here. They've just missed it. They're just missed it but there's something here. It's like that van Dan. That didn't that didn't know whether there's a band that recorded the song so much like stairway to heaven and they're mad but it's like you missed it. We could sue them. Yeah that's new lin-manuel around that was young person's guide to history. I remember started out as a longer series of episodes. They got condensed down to two. Yes one would say almost punitively distilled punitively. I wish you could read my scripts from that area though. I think you'd like them a lot of Interesting people in those episodes. Yeah Yeah We'll we'll character a bit because I knew all those groundings people and Michaela Watkins Kahlo is in it. Patterson on richest gemstones now she was in it correct bridesmaids with Kristen. Wig was in it Who Else Larry was hilarious and gone on anything? Anything famous for the Great Larry Door. Yeah he did but he did the thing where they dressed as a woman in the talk show for you guys. Oh yeah terrible or a funny It was it had some funny parts to it. It was it was Peculiar yeah it was Addition for that yeah and I went in with two other. People felt like one of those additions like commercial. Auditions are like this. And it's like you know. Just weird people off the street. You're in a room with suddenly you're going to improvise with them and you can just tell they are so desperate to talk that you a normal human will just give up and just sink inside themselves which I did I just I gave up. They were They had some hot takes fighting to express them. Yes yeah ask Yuppie broads that's good people on it. Yeah Yeah Tommy Blocher earthquake. Didn't Tommy do something on young one person's guide. Did he play. Something needed one thing to pop through that. So Seth Green been on south. Yeah did he wipe the bugger. Duggar on the curtain. Now maybe I feel like that. Maybe now's at that show is fraught with peril. But you know what came out of that also was Dave Dave Willis Did a young persons are for. Yeah yeah so it was a real incubator. uh-huh yeah a lot of the lot of great great ideas. They just didn't get they didn't coalesce not for young head of time and a good title young person's guide to history. We didn't do much with it though. Yeah we set the network back a bit there so I think yeah I saw that one away I feel I feel a little responsible and what happened. Then after that we got Peter Girardi looking as wounds took a job as a chastened he took a job at Warner Brothers animation where he works as a as a executive. Yeah then Peter Hired me to come in and do a brainstorming session about what to do with looney tunes and it was like me and Steve Little and some of those little crew. Steve was in young persons And we we said the only thought right I really had at the time was well. I've written all these sketches for both robot chicken and groundlings. I'm sitting on a treasure trove of written material. Not No not at all but I thought we could. We should do. The looney tunes is pitch it as the version of the muppet show. So it's like a sketch show and then make like the the muppet whatever the fuck. They're called the looney tunes. Do the same thing like kermit used to do like bugs can put on a hat and be news manners. Whatever I don't know what the idea and then and so? We started down that road. They loved it. We started down that road who loved it The CNN Peter. I think Warner Brothers. uh-huh yeah but then crucially someone higher are up at Warner Brothers swooped in Peter off and he was like this is not the bugs bunny I know and he was all we had to start over but then the great thing about it was. We ended up writing a Sitcom basically with bugs and daffy living in a house together it was very like the odd couple and it was very very very fun to write. Kristen wig played Lola. Bunny Fred Arniston played speedy Gonzales. We got some of some are funny friends to be on it. Did you feel responsibility instability. Messing around with bugs bunny now. I didn't give share. Because it's like they. They had already done but people already ruined it. That's what they always say they're like they're like these are the crown on jewels. But guess what does the Crown Jewels. They have parking signs in their parking garages. We'd like bugs bunny wearing a hard hat pointing in saying sorry. Farrah Dust Doc. It's like they've already fucking ruined him. The poor bastard is being ruined every day so there we weren't going to ruin their the great cartoons enes exists go there is no solemnity no no so you so that was fun. We wrote two seasons of a half hour Sitcom and really basically it was called the looney tunes show unmemorable title but It basically was a great writing Testing ground because like you now if you right in the real world of comedy live action. You're not gonNA write so many scripts you're GonNa be on the staff you're gonNA write like me one a season you're punching up. You're sitting in a room all day for this. We got to write fifty episodes by ourselves. And it's I that's it was huge. The amount of volume that we he wrote the episodes. Yeah Yeah it was to Caesar as technically fifty two but for some reason we quit before because because maybe Mike Tyson had come along and they wanted us on that. And Warner Brothers is like we're done with the looney tunes show. The kids don't like it and the kids couldn't they would. They would never like it. Made Him cry. We wrote it was such an adult show. We just had bugs daffy sitting in coffee shops but like we wrote it to amuse ourselves sadly But it was still a great experience and then I could have done better if it had a laugh. Track needed to tell the kids what was funny. The kids can't figure that around other kids. Yeah so it's like when they watch Disney live action nightmares. Those those horrible things they they have the fake laugh thing going all the time time. Yeah it's like they need to beat into another otherwise I think daffy duck is mean. They didn't know they could laugh at him. Here's me it's true. Here's need five real life. Heroes Meet Five. all-star adults watch brand new episodes of be real every Monday starting November eighteen only reporter You're sitting there at Warner brothers. Yeah in an office and the phone rings. No Sam Peter Comes. In and Peter was he was given a.
"hugh" Discussed on Adult Swim Podcast
"This is the adults and podcast. I'm Matt Harrigan I'm at stupid buddy studios in Burbank. California home of robot chicken. We've been talking to the cast and crew all the people who make the show today writer. Hugh David he's written for a lot of crazy shows isn't it. Tell us all about it. I think being with Mike Tyson sets a different tone being with Mike Laszlo roof potent figure what are the what are the similarities their idiosyncratic. Oh yeah kind of signature people. Yeah you Kinda. I think they're one you kind of want to think they're one thing and then there's going to be something that is confusing an element that doesn't square with other parts arts and then you're like what and then you're just confused. What was your first Running with Mike Tyson her end. I'm shocked you earn this. Yes it was. When we CA- someone you didn't go you? You didn't go to that thing. The thing where we shot at his house no go to. Somebody went could that have been Walter. Maybe it was wall. Yeah That's when we got. This is the first time we get there five in the morning. Shoot in the morning. We're cartoon that's barely a cartoon that was then wanting to live action and of course we're incompetent at it and then we arrive there with. I've written massive monologues for Mike Tyson. Like like soliloquies. Not having any idea he he's not gonna be able to do these and we get there. It's one hundred and five degrees at five fifteen in the morning. It's dark and it's one hundred five degrees and this is in Las Vegas Las Vegas. It is home. We're going to shoot exterior. We're GONNA shoot him. Outside wearing sweatsuits is the plan and having a bunch of stuff that will book in the show. The show is supposed to only only have live. Action wraparound yes. kind of like a car not fat Albert Albert and everyone just assumed Mike Tyson can do this so we get there. The wife answers the door and five in the morning when he very angry. Are you nervous about ring. My Tyson's five in the morning. Yes because it just looks like a fucking housewife. And why why are you there at five and why is that. They're not someone opening the door and meeting us like nothing approaching a house and she answers the door. She's very very angry with Mike who she says has last night betrayed her trust and he was in the club's doing Lord knows what and she's very very very upset and that was the beginning of the day it was that's five. Am We shot all day. That was also. He was sweating so much. And then I watch at this local makeup artist. Take Men's Mitchum antiperspirant deodorant and rub it on his forehead and then we said action like like different sweating. She used underarm deodorant. I met you think in two thousand eight when we were shooting young person's guide to history. Maybe just before that when you're doing and saw the moment yeah all the good old days. Yeah that was the best Saul Saul was the best because I felt like I was just a writer on on that I was just a writer I had done. I had ironically auditioned for the role of saw like a year before uh-huh and I believed I had gotten the part Craig. The the the Creator told me flat out of his. He's like you're it and then it said it had to go to network for approval. Well well then I didn't get it 'cause I guess. Lhasa thought I was not the character. Like they wanted to be like like a like a Schmo guys like a a dope. Josh gu-guy but wasn't cutting I'm not a cool guy kind of a cool. I'm a crazy and then like so it's frustrating and then I then I was on the writing. Staff and Josh Gardner was him and I love Josh. Makes me laugh. Josh's crazy and the writing of that was the funniest thing thing in the world. It was like that and to me reminded me of like the same experience. When you're doing something in it's crazy and underfunded which you guys must have the whole of the beginning of adult swim from what I've read was guys experience? Yeah craziest senior funded. Yeah but it was cool. It was like it seemed you at least thought this is cool and and fun to do. You're here in this building Stephen Buddies because you're you're first writing job was on robot chicken. Yes they brought you back for the special chill that they're writing now. Yes and tell us how you got involved with robot chicken. Seth had been in those Mike. I Myers Moves The spy often Austin powers movies and the Frau Bisa is the actress. Mindy Sterling Rolling Mindy was like teacher growlings and was in the main company when I first started growling. groundlings Improv growlings Improv local. La Theater and she. Evidently Seth was putting together the against the writing staff and she said Oh I think groundlings people would I guess. She said they'd be good for this. It's sketch and they do sketch. And so he came to see a show. An improv show and I was in it coincidentally Eddie Izzard in that show but the show is very funny property izard and then Seth came up to me afterwards and he was like. Oh I would you come in and interview and I was. I was very excited. I did at the time. Think going to be an actor. I had no thought of being a writer weirdly. But as a improv person you write for yourself yes and even at growlings as you write your own sketches. So you're like you are grooming yourself at the worst to be a sketch writer. But I came into. I had a packet of sketches and gave them and then I remember very vividly. Doug Goldstein has one of the head writers at the time now still is i. Guess I don't know where he is his official title. Doug he's very blunt and you'd say impolitic but he said after eating one of my sketches. This is not funny at all. which seemed unnecessary? Could've you could've said it's very funny. Bert were not hiring and maybe worse he said it's not funny at all and then they hired me it made no sense mixed message. Yes but I very sketchy it was one of the sketches identity groundlings and I would. It would do great every weekend. It was about John Ironically. Klay even though there's like twenty years ago it was about John Bolton who is currently the but is he the National Security Advisor Twenty years ago. You're reading John Bolton's John Bolton because he was in the UN he was appointed to the UN bye. Bye Bush Bush. The son wasn't niche. Yes comedy but no one new who he was but he had he had these hilarious quotes he said he wanted to bomb the UN. He was very funny. Seem to me. It seemed like a funny guy. He's in the big now. It's not it's not anymore. People think so. You wrote a John. Bolton Sketch Goldstein said. It was terrible. Yes they hired me and then I read like a dream weird. And then I struggled I with the shortness of sketches brevity. That they were going for your. You're at long I I'm a dully paste fellow and I think even like groundlings people think I go too slow so I let alone on a show that prides itself on these ten seconds things It was a it seemed like a bad match but but I think I I was different and they found a way to make make Mike Sketches would get in I think they 'cause they're a little dylan. The different side and I don't know shit about pop culture. I'm older crucially older than Matt. And Seth and and my touchstones and memories are not quite there as I was like I feel like none of toys. They were into none of the the movies really were. We're I just been a little bit too old. So you're writing long long winded on winded unfunny catches about obscure political figures. Yeah I knew nothing about the references that they were right. I should've been a robot chicken failure but for some reason I'm I'm I I don't know what the hell it is. What do you think it was? I don't know I think I think I think I make Tom Laugh. And and Tom Helps meet figure out how to get my sketches to work on the show. Do you remember your first sketch that got in. Yeah it was like a it was a song and that's another thing I don't sing at all but for some reason I've written like four songs on robot chicken but The song it was it was about that. Legend Urban Legend in New York. Where like if a person falls and gets trapped between the subway subway and the subway platform and then their body is like somehow mushed and then they're alive fully exit create some fantasy Turner Kit and they're perfectly take time but if they pull the train away instant death so then I had my stay there and he he he? He lives out the rest of his long life breath and the he had a long happy life but but also my added thing was he didn't like his job so either though he should've had a different attitude not assume disconnected from the transformers. Yes yes yes I kind of thing and the worst part is all those songs that I've written for them because at some point had to email them. IPHONES are so you know dastardly there in my tunes so occasionally in my car if I plus shuffle I can hear my own stupid voice singing a song on robot chicken. Wow every once in a while like one and three hundred and no songs made it onto the show. They did that. One did head and.

"He was. Was a long time ago. Isn't that just a facade, Hugh? Total facade. Yeah. No. And I'm ready to break. The songs now Willie there. There. Can't play wolverine without having a little bit of that inside you somewhere. Now. It's the way I was brought up. Yeah. I mean. I'm still show people say that to me and my dad, it'd be going. Not I didn't like the way like you didn't shake you didn't call Mr. right? Mr. MRs, sir. Like, I was I saw you. But your elbows on the table come on. Like, he's you know, I was really brought up from my mom and dad actually with with that since that everybody needs to feel appreciated. My mom's still says that to this day and every body needs to feel appreciated. So wherever you go. Don't ever forget that. And it doesn't matter who you are and the pecking order make sure people feel that. So I don't know if that's interpreted as nice, it's just probably a good upbringing, and it probably feels one just being myself credit for those right? Yeah. Night on say, the private man, right? Good. By the way. I am an act like, you know, Willie. This is an hour. I can play an ice for an hour. Is widows lights go off storms out of here. And I'm just giving myself a sentence literally.

And you were asked about becoming famous, right? And you said I fear becoming famous right? Do you? Remember, what you were feeling in that moment when you were on the precipice, you weren't sure what was going to happen to your life. You said I don't know if I have the the will to be a star that people look up to in. I actually I had forgotten that moment when you when you're early on, and you create you get a lot of advice from people you've gotta be like this. So if you're movie star backed in the thinking was. You've got to be mysterious. Don't give up much of yourself. Hold everything. Back key people wanting more be mystery and mad unco. It's been five minutes when I'm completely the opposite. I don't really like all of my friends..
"hugh" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Hey, guys, Willie Geist here with another episode of the Sunday, sit down podcasts. Thanks so much for hanging out with us. Again this week. My guest today is one of the most famous biggest names in Hollywood. But also one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, Hugh Jackman, Hugh, and I got together to talk about his latest film the front runner in which he plays Gary Hart. It's the true story about the leading democratic candidate for president in nineteen eighty eight whose campaign, you'll remember fell apart after reports of an extra marital affair monkey business and all the rest of it. Hugh opens up in our conversation about preparing for that role in Australian playing an American politician. He went right to the source visiting Gary Hart in Colorado for what he said was an emotional conversation talking through it. He also talks about how this was sort of the beginning of something in the American political media cycle that we still see playing out today. We also get in with Hugh about playing wolverine and the x Ben movies to becoming a song and dance, man. On Broadway, and the circus leader P T Barnum in the crazy monster hit the greatest showman. A movie that he worked on for many years to get made. And Hollywood wasn't. So sure about it until Jackman prevailed. Eventually he also talks about his love for the theater and the nerves he felt taken on the role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables which eventually earned him. An Oscar nomination are Sunday sit down with Hugh Jackman right now on the Sunday. Sit down podcast you. Thank you for doing this to see it was always you to was the stike, man. I know where we've ordered foods running late will be living off typical ACTA eating interview. You're here for the free meal. Aren't you? You got. So I wanna talk about the front runner. Cried a great story, and the audio loves politics or remembers it womb will love this film when they came to you and said, hey, wolverine greatest showman. We want you to play Gary Hart. What'd you think? Well, my wife has been jokingly calling. Me Senator Jackman years. Like if I got a restaurant all always say sorry. What's your name mealy because I was a white of so many years on a know what it's like to be known as a waiter. So she Senator Jackson. Pot of a felt very easy for me. But I was nervous to be honest. I was nervous because I've never played someone alive who I know is going to sit down and watch the film. And also, you could argue that it's possibly the worst two or three weeks of Gary's life that is going to be used to tell a story which hopefully eliminating and. Then Gary would be happy with and he's wife, we'd be having these kids. But I was I was nervous and excited. Jason Reitman as director always wanted to work with, you know, love Juno up air. Thank you for smoking. He's a great filmmaker. So it was a huge mix of things. But it was a big big challenge. And you visited Senator Hart? It's interesting that he even wanted to see you. There's a chance he might have said I want nothing to do with this movie. I've tried to put that behind me, what was his posture toward you entered this movie as you talked to them well before I met him. And I'll have Gary doesn't mind me saying this. I talked to a lot of these campaign people who are still very close to him to this day and most of them Rockstars in their world. They all flew into see the movie with him actually that just to show you off to thirty years. How close they were. And I all gave me advice about how to be with Carrie and how to approach it. And this potentially, you know, sensitive situation. For the moment. I met him. I didn't they do have had any of those conversations. He immediately. It was quite arresting to me. I was nervous. I get it. He came to pick me up at the airport. The trunk of the SUV was a man who was waiting on the curb with everybody else, and I went out there..
