Fresh "Hugh" from Hugh Hewitt

"Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu just tweeting out from his Twitter account. Welcome the new followers from the USA in the Gulf Countries. It's you. Yeah. Hilldale dialogue is underway. I'm joined by the dean of the Hilldale Graduate School in Washington, D c. The Van Andale School of Government Inside the Beltway. Formally, no minutes. Kirby Center. Actually. Still, the Kirby Center is graduate school government in it. Now, all things Hillsdale, including the course offerings in the application materials for the Graduate program are found at hillsdale dot edu. Okay. Matt Spaulding, the Iran I mean, the Israel you any peace deal doesn't occur in a vacuum. It occurs in the middle of a presidential campaign and I have never seen a opposing candidate have to acknowledge a diplomatic blockbuster the way that Joe Biden did yesterday. But there's really no choice. My question do doesn't have any impact on the election. You're right about that. I mean, Ah Ah, He's recognized this block bluster he had to, and I think a to you The term right? The Trump is really stolen a march on his critics here. That I think the extent to which this really becomes representative of the trump foreign policy. It's very significant whether the particulars of how it plays out, I suppose, is another question. But think broadly here for a moment. His opponent has recognized the vast magnitude of this agreement, which, by all accounts, I think is not debatable. The key part here I think is what were the precursors that made this agreement possible that I think we're where the politics get very interesting here. Two things I think were absolute necessary. One is the Ah the backing out of the Iran nuclear deal and, um, undermining isolating Iran in his proxies. So that's now front and center on the table in a way that it wasn't because of the success of this agreement. But the other thing that I think is the important agreement precursor here. That is that is behind all this. It makes it possible again. Going back door. Historical examples is the re establishment of strength and the establishment that the United States has ah, Israel's back in having these negotiations. You know the the movie of the embassy to Jerusalem. Along with the taking out of Solomon E. And and, Ah, you know, those things I think are important signals in Middle East politics that made this possible and al Baghdadi and the recognition of the annexation because well, there he's been at policy of strength for four years, Not only the Jerusalem Embassy, not only recognizing the annexation of Golan nights. But taking out Sulamani taking out all Bagdad and getting rid of Isis, So here's Here's the package problem for further Biden campaign, is it? It is a package. It's not merely that was a great agreement. Let's move on. That was a great agree because of those policies which have been building yes. And so I think this is actually a breakthrough, and then behind that, I think is the larger Ah point which I think when you look especially when we go back to those those great speeches that we praised and in Saudi Arabia but also the Poland speech and elsewhere. Behind that there's now a clear distinction between how modern liberalism and this new kind of trump doctrine looks at the world. Which is that they make distinctions between regime types and between between friends and enemies. They've found some friends in the Middle East who can make agreements based on common interests. By this deal works behind that, however, is American strength. At the same time to drop to make our parallel broader here. This this foreign policy also makes renew distinctions between friends and our enemies in cases like Ah, regimes that are fundamentally opposed to where what we're doing like China. So I think this is part and parcel of peace, really? The centre piece of a larger picture of foreign policy, which, if that really become front and center And this great try this great strategic triumph. In this agreement is the is the kind of the centerpiece of the positive piece of it. I think that creates some some difficulties arguing about the that aspect to this campaign having to do with with foreign policy. I don't think they could merely agree. This is nice. Put it under the rug. Let's move on. This really is earth shattering and they're going to deal with that. You know, small achievements lead to big things. The National Security Advisor mentioned last hour. That NBC and the U Ey were instrumental in returning to the United States hostage in Yemen. Danny Birch that happened 2.5 years ago when now national security advisor O'Brien was the special envoy for hostage affairs. He worked and worked and worked that deal with the assistance of the USA and got that hostage back that Small things matter a lot Matt Spalding, and you're right. It's all of a piece all of this stuff about supporting Israel about opposing Iran about acting. But there are also small, constructive thing on atomic time, Brian Hook and Pompeo him into the region. It's a four year culmination, and then you go back and re read the Saudi Arabia speech. When he begins there. He brought All those Arab leaves together at that summit. They were all there, and Trump's talking to them, like friends and making relationships that stuff really matters. And now we're it's paying off. But this has been, you know, three years, seven years in the making. And so the significance of that, and then you add to that the breakthrough this thiss causes regards of who wins the election. This is, I think, locked in This is the equivalent of of the previous administration in case of Nixon, Ford administrations, setting up something which will play into the next administration. Regardless of who wins. This is monumentally important. Having said that it occurs the fact that occurred within this administration in the midst of this prior to election. I think we'll have Ah, ramifications for that as well because the The moment which shows the fruit of all this work has occurred now, now, man, I gotta ask you, though, I watch Twitter yesterday aware of the historic significance of this On DH saw more tweets about the postal Service and mail in ballots Then I did about an accord between Israel and Little Sparta. I mean, it's it's astonishing to me. The bubble doesn't want to admit that Trump not on Ly scored a huge diplomatic win, but historic when those were different things right. Those were different things. The accord between Turkey and the Kurds is one thing. This is the airline's going back and forth from Dubai and Now the other Emirates to.

"Welcome back America to you at the hotel Dialogue is underway this Friday In August, I'm joined by Dean Matt Spalding, who lead the Hillsdale graduate program in government inside the Beltway. All things Hilldale Hill, dale dot edu Things falling before we go to the politics of of the Trump peace deal that he the art of the deal between you and Israel. I want to review how this sort of thing happened. Israel fund in 1948 immediately attacked by a tariff neighbors subsequent wars in 1956 in 1967 leading up to the surprise attack on Israel in 1973 by both Syria and Egypt. In the aftermath of Israel's Nixon said Senator Anything that can fly, they fought their way to a stalemate and then began Nixon Kissinger and then Ford Kissinger diplomacy. Shuttle diplomacy, which eventually that even after Carter one to the Camp David accords, then it rise from 1978 till 1994 until another Arab state Signed a peace deal Jordan within a Jordan and now it's been another 25 years. So really, that's all one event. It is, as you said earlier, the settling of Israel onto the map. It is the fruition of Churchill DRI. I mean, the Balfour Declaration. And the Bell for declaration, which River Churchill Wass the Ah, in charge of the Middle East in the 19 twenties. That's where he learned that some of his earliest geo strategic lessons No, no, You're right. The the history of Israel is part of this. And this is what I made earlier when the diplomacy after the Yom Kippur Ward in Kissinger that eventually led to the Camp David accords and that diplomatic breakthrough, which was when Egypt established diplomatic relations with Israel. Followed as you nicely laid out there later. Bye Bye, Jordan. Not till 1994. This is this is why it is so vastly significant and can't be can't be understated. Way off time to refer to the peace process as if the process is the objective in the end. No. The end here is having a peaceful regimes in the Middle East, but also standing by the our democratic ally in the Middle East. And this is what this is why the Harry Truman reference is important. In 1948. He saw the importance of Israel not only as the continuation of the Palestinian homeland but also the establishment of democracy in the Middle East. And so within minutes he recognized Israel. Um Here's why to kind of lead into our conversation of politics here. Here's why I think the the Democratic the modern liberal approach this in particularly Mom Obama administration. Misunderstood how this process works and was what was gonna happen here. That approach always sees the person in this case, President Obama as the as the great figure that bring them together, and their sense of justice is going to bring peace in this process. That misunderstands America's role here. America When you think back that history of Truman and Ah after the Yom Kippur War, the role it played the United States. Is his underlings security risks of a peace deal, especially for Israel. It's a different way of looking at our relationship with that region of the world. And that's what has been long misunderstood. And I think this agreement which harkens back, I think to the the thing leading up to the Camp David accords. The Nixon, Kissinger and Ford. Strategic thinking. That's the parallel. I think here is this looks at it, I think correctly, which is what is America's role here? It's not to be the arbiter between fighting fighting people. It's to be a, um, a tip on the scale. If you will, to a guarantor not only of this democratic ally but also the security risks involved with coming to this. This peace deal. We make it possible. For Israel to make those Ah ah put things on the table they might not want to are probably shouldn't have absolute air and we also make it possible those Arab nations to come to the table as well because we're such a large economic and military player in the world. When we come back, we'll talk about the implications for 2020. I do want to note when Matt Spaulding mentions Truman in 1948. It reminds me A century earlier in 18 48. Lord Paul Merson, British statesman, then prime minister said, We have no eternal allies, referring the United Kingdom. We have no eternal allies. We have no perpetual.

Welcome back Ambassador O'Brien and Double Congratulations on your recovery from the virus and on Being part of the team that assistant President Trump Prime Minister Netanyahu and Crown Prince eight and bringing home historic peace accord yesterday. That's a double big congratulations. Well, thank you. It's always great to be with you. And what an accomplishment for the president. The prime minister of the Crown Prince yesterday with the Abraham accords are really something special, and I was proud to be part of that team. I would like you to expand a little bit on the nuts and bolts. I had one member of the team tell me yesterday that you continue to work on this Even when you're at home recovering from the virus. There are lots of people who worked on this. Of course, the Big three, But you got Secretary of State Pompeo and Terry Secretary Lucien You got Jared Kushner fellow Avi Berkowitz, who I have not met on your team. General Korea. Captain Vane draw. I mean, we've got all sorts of Americans and that doesn't even begin to touch on Ambassador of Type B, An ambassador Dermer. No. And Ambassador David Friedman, our ambassador. Israel played a role in that Rob Greenway at the at the NFC. It was a It was really a team effort, and folks rolled up their sleeves and got something done. That's going to change the world. You know, it's a good morning when you wake up in Thomas Friedman in New York Times is praising President Trump and agreeing that this was huge. It was Really a courageous step for for all the players. I want to compliment the Crown Prince. His name is not going to go down with an unwashed ADANDE, King Hussein of Jordan. Prime Minister. Netanyahu's name will be Ah, We'll always be mentioned with Perez and with Dragon these air, it's a dangerous neighborhood. And then these were very courageous steps that these thes men took and And as I've said before, the president's known as a deal maker in great deals, great trade deals great deals with Congress on taxes, But I think history is going to remember the president is a peacemaker. It's Really something special that he was able to put together. When exactly do you think you all knew that the deal was done because these air fragile instruments until they become cemented into place. When did that moment arrived? When the president looked to you and said We got a deal. The art of the deal is here. Wait. We knew when the phone when he went and hung up the phone yesterday. I mean these things number one. It was pretty extraordinary that we were able to keep it quiet so that it couldn't be derailed by the enemies of peace. Ah, and it couldn't be politicized, so we were able to keep it quiet. We're able to keep the party's talking and the president as he does hosted a call yesterday morning with Prime Minister Netanyahu and And the Crown prince and the deal came together in the statement was issued by all three parties and we hung up the phone and knew we had a deal and it was. It was really special. The president was very generous. He had the entire team that had worked on this. Historic accord together in the Oval Office with him for the call from the more junior staffers all the way up to the senior folks unfortunate Secretary Pompeii was traveling in Europe and couldn't be there, but Hey, had a big role as well and assumes the phone call was over. Everyone broke into spontaneous applause. It was it was quite a moment Can we want for the benefit of history? Ambassador O'Brien Some some specifics on the individuals on the American side involved. Brian Hook is the secretary of State Special representative for Iran. What was his role here? Look. Brian spent a lot of time in the region over the past few months, talking, the leaders and clearly the concern about the threat that ran poses, as well as the confidence that the parties had that the United States would stand up to Iran after President Trump was withdrew from the disastrous away and then put maximum pressure on Iran. I think that's what gave the party's confidence in part to move forward with this because they saw the The the pressure that we're putting on Iran and Brian's done a great job out in the Middle East at the U. N and otherwise making sure that that coalition stuck together. So you know important role about Jared Kushner and Avi Burka with Jared has taken an enormous amount of heat as allegedly being a dilettante at times in over his head. Nice brought home a deal. How intimately involved with every aspect of this is Jared Kushner. And again. I don't know who our vehicle which is but his name's all over every account I bred. Well, look, Jared quarterback this thing under the direction of the president. I mean, this was President Trump's deal, but this was a something very near and dear Tio Jarrod's heart. Hey, spent the last 3.5 years, cultivating relationships in the region and building trust and confidence in Israel, but also in the Gulf capitals and the Arab capitals. And this wouldn't have happened without without Jared and his commitment to the The deal working for his father in law, the president, United States and, you know, I think the criticisms of Jared that are out there. I think they're unfair. I've never seen someone who works harder. Is there early in the morning? Is there late at night? He's working the phones. I even extraordinarily charming guy. Excellent diplomat and under any other circumstances would be hailed as you know, one of the great dealmakers and along with the president in American history, Just just look what he did with the U. S. M. C, A and what he did with criminal justice reform. I mean, he's taken on heart issues in the Middle East. Peace is just the The latest in a series of touched tough issues of Jarod's tackled and then done with Ah Plum, and it's all lawyer, Avi Berkowitz is a Harvard lawyer, right? Obvious and and very, very talented young lawyer, Young man and someone we're gonna hear from again in the future. There's no doubt and he well, he worked tirelessly and also spent a lot of time in the region. Traveling with Brian and others on DH working with me on a daily basis. I've come to have great respect for Ravi and Ah, 80 developed again. These things the relationship driven right and They develop great relationships with the ambassador Dermer, Ambassador of table Ambassador Friedman, what with the players in the form of the various foreign ministries and and he was tireless and working on this deal, and it was great to see him say few words and have him recognized by the president yesterday. Now you mention it. People don't understand. The NSC is only 100 people. But you mentioned Rob Greenway, who I don't know. And Major General Miguel Correa, captain Mark Manda. Why so many military active and retired. In the NFC Robert O'Brien. Well, if we have a Dennis, he's got a big role in foreign policy, but also big role in national security. And and this is a ah matter that involved both national security and foreign policy. General Korea had served as the defense attache in the great relationships there. Captain Bancroft was a very successful naval officer and came to us recently to the DNC and S O. So there were there were defense aspects to this that were important. Rob Greenway's Ah retired, Does Army Colonel My intelligence officer and was also runs our Middle East shop and has great relationships in the region. So we were proud of the the NFC that helped coordinate the activities and the The efforts here and provide some backup to the are other diplomats, both in the White House, the State Department who are working to see issue very hard over the past past six weeks, but really over the past year or two. No Ambassador Brian A lot of people in United States yesterday did not know Quote MBC. Close quote. You have spent time with him. I believe when you were a special envoy for hostage affairs for the president. I think he spent time with NBC and a secretary Pompeo as the president has talked to him..

Teenagers Surfing on the Wave of the Apocalypse

"I've been approached about the student teacher story before by people who always seem to have this moralistic agenda to tell this cautionary tale of young people who are in over their heads or taken advantage of with too much freedom and sex and drugs, and rock and roll. And I definitely want to be clear with you that I actually believe that artistic exploration and that. Freedom is worth a certain amount of existential risk and I'd rather live next door to junkies than millionaires any day. And I'm endlessly grateful. That we came of age in a place time like that. And welcome to another edition of the shape of things to come. I'm bill floor and I'm Dean Miller and our guest this week artist student teachers. Start off where everything starts off with. Let's introduce ourselves. Then Dan My teachers. Yeah. Go ahead. Base I was more comfortable from the time. I was little kid with what were considered freaks than I like drag Queens I like boys, hugh tweets, their eyebrows I wanted them to put my makeup on J. I Sing I mean going to a dead boys concert with you're sitting in the front row at CBGB's and stiff baiters. Ripping out his pubic hair throwing at you. That's disgusting. But it was amazing. On wore I play drums as teenagers. We were filming gigs for the mumps we were helping the erasers build up their sets for their shows and we've been very involved and so there was kind of this organic thing that came together. You know maybe we should maybe we can do that. You know I mean maybe we can do that. By Play Guitar. Let's say you had. School. In one hand and. Being in a band and hanging out with blondie. David Bowie and the other hand and it was impossible to do both things. Boy Do you think would happen. There'd be less school-going. Joe I buy another talk. I wanted to be a rock and roller I play guitar, and I just wanted to make wild noise. Or. Unveil. muschamp coffee you would see warhol walking around with his polaroid and handing out copies into you magazine. So this is what I thought. Every teenager did it didn't occur to me that. What an unusual environment this what? We're here sort of to talk a little bit about the band place music and give people a chance to find out what the student teachers are really because I think a lot of people in New York even though I know most of the people in the band from the New York area don't know that much about student teachers. Any. Seems to be a mystery to herself and everyone. While sometimes, that's effective. I don't know. Imagine this group of teenagers in the late seventies in new. York. City. Most of them are still in high school, a couple of recently graduated. They're obsessed with bands like television and Patti Smith the Ramones Roxy Music. Most of them come from fractured family lives and find community in the club scene.

"My friend, Steven Kotler. Is a magnificent human being he is a New York Times bestselling author many times over. And, he has dedicated his life to understanding our optimal states of being. We call it flow, but there's it's really a spectrum of states from from being deeply embodied in. A meditative state to being higher than a kite. Are climbing wall or scaling amount, and were surfing wave. And I've I've spent so much time understanding optimal states of being. Because at the end of it, all at the end of the day. We are. We're wired to look for pleasurable. Experiences and it doesn't have to mean decadent or leisure. You know pleasurable experiences can be just simply being. Fully immersed in a project at work where you lose your sense of time and sense of self. And this is what? Our enthusiasm, this is where our enthusiasm takes us. When we are so excited and. Intrigued, and the word of the day is curious about something about an activity or subject or. A creative. Project we lose ourselves. And that brings US alive. That helps us to shift out of this. Just the drudgery of thinking all day planning all day to this delightful dance of aliveness. And you deserve that you deserve to feel alive. It's our birthright to feel curious. Enthusiastic. And it doesn't mean it has to happen twenty, four seven.

It's been hugely helpful for me and a do it probably every six weeks. oftentimes, I'll do it when I started new journal. and. I'll just start that journal with this exercise. So. Here we do here goes you WANNA list out the numbers one through twenty five. Put at the top. Things I'm curious about. And spend a few minutes and write down everything that you are currently. Curious about. And then they could be totally random things. Such as I. I did this exercise with a few a few people on my team. In my in my mental wellness business. We were doing this exercise because when you find out what you're curious about it really brings you alive and one of our our our love lease said, you know curious about UFO's and extraterrestrials. That is awesome. Right. So I could be so vague like that or random. What are you curious about? Right. down. Right down, and then the second step is to spend fifteen minutes a day or more. But let's start with fifteen minutes a day. Down a rabbit hole. Allow yourself to go on wikipedia. You know go down those rabbit holes by clicking on the links. Give Yourself. That freedom. To Google it. To research it to. Dive into some video or to buy a book about it. This is what keeps US sparked. Sparked and curious. And it doesn't have to be work related and it doesn't have to be enlightened. Right? It can be anything under the Sun. What are Hugh curious about? Right now.

Though surprise, guests are coming up, so you will not want to miss it. You guys, but we got to start off with the ladies up for lead actress in Drama Series Right? The category is Stack Jen Aniston. Sandra Oh's and those are just some of the big names who is going to take the win. What do you guys think? I just think Zendaya is GonNa take you was this show that everybody was talking about? It was unbelievable and not everybody got to watch the morning show with Jennifer Aniston because. Apple TV was not readily available so I think Zendaya is going to take this I was not paying the fourteen ninety nine. GD! There was so many submissions one hundred thirty five submissions. This year for this category lost those. So things I think women I'm kind of with you. Just although ozark for me has been one of my favorite shows forever and ever and. Laura Linney could take it out that. Could get in I. could not get into. It was like I. Really Try just I couldn't do it, but that's just me. All right we gotta talk about snubs and surprises, though big little lies when pretty much everything? Last time it was nominated. But this year came up short. No Best Actress nomination, no best limited series. I'M GONNA. Ask what you guys think about. These into getting snubbed a little bit. Should've been made, I thought. Was Okay, but they should've kept it at season one. They should have just wrote it out, but you know what Merrill got nominated. Laura Linney got nominated. She is Gucci ever. Reese Witherspoon as a producer of this show. This is a win for her, so she is as though she got snubbed. She is nominated because two of our actresses were. Absolutely. Strong enough season two. Why did you like season two as much Morgan I know you were saying earlier before the show? Why you're putting me on glass. Scott, I mean maybe I didn't want to hear that I just felt like. The first season was just too hard to top to be honest. It was so good everything was everything about it was so hook line and sinker. Everyone was invested as I just feel like. They wanted to ride out that high season two was okay, but you never want to have your second season just. Just be okay I just felt like even though Merrill we all bow down to Merrill. She can handle any role. I just felt like she wasn't going to save it. And although she got nominated, she gets nominated. It's just that's just what you do. She acts that well. She deserves it all the time. I just what Jessica said I. Don't think it should have been made I think we should have just. Episodes in the second series. I love the song. The second series is still a Mike Finish shoot and I'm never finished it, so I thought.

Did you learn first of all I learned how difficult it is for community that so knit to separate itself all of a sudden like what valiant effort. They did to actually do that once they realize what was going on. And the price is heavy prices. They paid I learned how lockdown affects people very differently lockdown, not the same for a young couple with the one kid or a bachelor living alone or with some roommates, as it is for a mother of you know six seven thirteen kids. Another thing I learned. Is You know these people are very positive? Even when I talked to them, and I talked to remember, I talked to people who had very strong complaints. That's that's how I reached them. Even those people at the end. All of them felt it was very important to end with a positive message. Hopeful message that we can all learn to get along better and. They'll never complain. They'll say you know. It's very very hard, but So. That was really inspiring for me. Being myself stuck with three kids at home and much. Full of. Self pity. That story was produced by High May. Together with our amazing production intern Marie Huda. Ari Jacob wrote and performed the original music.

So Alex wasn't sure how it would all go down I. Thought I would be getting things thrown at me or like getting shouted from the other side of the street stuff. Like what is the army doing? Hugh, get out of place. I can tell you that as soon as they see us coming there like and they put on the face mask or go to another place. So what do you do you go and knock on people's doors or where? How'd you? How'd you convey this information? No, we do not going to people's homes. We are going close to supermarkets to hospitals.

Removing Logs and Specks (Luke 6:41-42)

"Luke chapter, six versus forty, one and forty two. Jesus says. Why do you see the SPEC? That is in your brother's eye. But do not notice the log that is in your own I. How can you say to your brother brother? Let me take out the suspect that is in your eye. When you yourself do not see the log that is in your own I, you hypocrite first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the SPEC that is in your brother's i. Mrs. Pretty clear what we see in Jesus teaching here and really all over scripture, it is far easier to see sin in others than it is to see sen in ourselves. I get his. It's much more natural to us to observe sin and others, and not observed sin in ourselves. And, so Jesus is saying very clearly here. Whenever you notice sin, others stop like immediately. Stop and ask. What evidence is there of sin even specifically that Sen we see and others. In our own lives. Like. Sin Around us should immediately cause us to examine sin in us. To ask, how do I need to be more holy more like Jesus? What do I need to confess and so to do this? Like Jesus not saying not to help your brother or sister to help someone turn from sin like he wants us and cause us to. The Gospels thing. About Matthew Chapter Eighteen all throughout the new task, we are commanded to help one another grow in hall in his to become more like Jesus to spur one another on toward Christ restore one another when we are caught in sin like we do this word. This is one of the ways we love each other. If someone in my life, see sin in my life, and just doesn't say anything just ignores it, and lets me continue down a sinful path, and that person does not love me like if they love me, they will call me away from sin, but they will do it with a humble heart. That has examined that sin, and just the presence of sending their own hearts in the process, and in this way we realize that helping one another turned from sin as long as we're doing it, luke six forty, one to forty two style like letting that lead us first and foremost to examination our own hearts, we realize. That we grow in Jesus in this process and others grow in their relationship with Jesus and likeness to Jesus in this process so God help us. We pray to do this well. God opener is to sin. In, US, and around us. GotTa we want to turn from sin, and we want our brothers and sisters in Christ turn from sin. We all want to experience the life you have for us, so give us sensitivity to send Anna's and around us when we see sent around us God. We pray for Hugh, Melanie. We pray for honest self examination. Even practically right now. As, we might think through. Where we want to help those around us grow in Christ, God show us ways where we need to grow in Christ. God us even seeing sin and others to expose in your own hearts and. Do this work of sanctification in us, and then you ask God, please use us to. Do this work of sanctification and others lives for their good God. We pray. You'd help us to remove logs from our eyes. And to remove specs from our brothers and sisters is and in this process God. Please make us all look more like Jesus help us help us to be sensitive to sin in others lives, and in our own lives, and in the process opposite to confess it, honestly humbly to repent of it, and to follow you and experience the life. Eve designed for us to live. We pray this in Jesus name. Amen

4 Ways to become Re-Inspired with your Space

"There I'm Christina Browning your host. If you feel like your household, frustrations are stealing away your life hour by hour. I discussed home, functionality aesthetics and automation with a bit of history and a dash of psychology. This isn't your typical. House podcast. I'm a realtor and home functionality coach I geek out on various subjects, regarding your home and yard challenging you to think of your space differently to get the most out of every square foot I post questions for you to think through about your space and your reason, this podcast is all positive making adulting easier one podcast at a time. Remember. There's no such thing as perfect, but you can still aim for your best every day in this episode. Let's discuss home, functionality and aesthetics four ways to become reinspired with your space episode thirty five. The top thing that affects how space functions and feels. Is Light. One refreshing your space, look I to your windows and light fixtures. Think in terms of layers supporting not just the look you want, but the life you want. And my leading in the most possible light from my windows. Artificial light has caused some confusion in our bodies, which have evolved to respond to the stimuli of sunlight and darkness. The responsiveness to natural light is called the Circadian Rhythm, which is the twenty four hour biological cycle of almost all living beings. It's primarily influenced by light reception. Natural Sunlight improves our sense of wellbeing, so lighting can't be taken lightly. Do you have dimmers on any lights, and if not might that help achieve the mood, you seek depending on the time of day and task at hand. I will dive into some questions as always to ask yourself about this when we get to the question segment of the podcast coming here soon. Another option here is to get a pair of Phillips who lives which when used with their APP have a warm night light option, a dimmed option and a bright work light option all accessible from the APP. Now that many of us are spending more time at home. These lights can help you. Stay productive or adjust to a new schedule and support activities like meditation for example. Hugh labs has a collection of formulas to tailor my Phillips. Lytle, exactly what I need throughout the day I like brighter tones in the morning, and as the day goes on, I prefer it to become warmer so that I can slowly wind down. They have four recipes. Energize concentrate, read and relax. I even installed a recipe called candlelight, and I it no candles necessary. Next I want you to evaluate what you want your visitors to I notice when they enter the room. Your refreshing now whether you have visitors or not is irrelevant. Just thinking from this perspective, though helps with this exercise, it requires you to create a visual hierarchy. If you're standing in the living room for example and you want the focal point to be your fireplace. Take a photo of the room like with your cell phone with it in the center of your photo and evaluate snap. You just took. Could it go into a magazine feature and I'm Nabet Bet? Your answer is no, which is totally normal. What could I do to make this snap more appealing? Let me emphasize magazine. Quality is not everyone's goal here, but I'm suggesting it's merely another way to see your space differently looking at your photo. Could you minimize the stuff around the focal point? Maybe you don't even have a focal point great. That is a good place to start. This is a good way to refresh. Give your space vowed focal point. I find it so interesting when I take a photo. It reads so differently than what I see with my eyes so I use this as a tool for refreshing my space.

So happy I I think my egos, but like I think my copies more famous than me. Which is obviously the golf when the world is back to so called normal. How many more cafes do you want to open up? I don't know. It's always a good question. Obviously for me, I did You know Paul Newman was my sort of inspiration on all. This I'm not ever read the book.

It's fantastic, and it's a highly with raid and you know that's really what inspired us to create it and so obviously I wanted to. Make the foundation as big as possible to help as many femmes as possible, and you know I think we're the only one in the coffee spice way gaming.

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.

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.

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.

"Of some back probably back yada me sort. Let's go reportedly reportedly hordley. 'cause we're reporters. Yes emil. You've been saying this for so long that i now have other people d._m. Being like hugh freeze through his backout jerkin. It did that same call that independent confirmation. That's two sources awesome jeff scholtz have this on his twitter feed by midnight two sources you freeze its deck and you freeze his hand. There you go. I ah this is like pulling off a scab and you know there's blood but you just keep yanking out it 'cause it's now. There's so many words so close to each other. I don't like these you freeze scabbed it. Do you think at some point during the game because he was in a bed he was tempted tempted to masturbate and then he was like out windows still didn't nobody was watching this game.

"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. Everyone's like, I'm gonna catch the moment. Like. I don't know if you'll remember this. You didn't interview with Rolling Stone in the year two thousand well, right? When X men was right? 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..

"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..

"No but the thing is there is a level of technical proficiency that's involved in what he does that but it's an it's the problem with the greatest showman is not that any of the performers are lacking in technical proficiency in fact the problem is that the film doesn't manage to use its central perform was key skills you know i mean shall williams for example who is brilliant in most things has no chance to be brilliant in this because everything about what she's being asked to do same i'm sorry to keep coming back to this word fake and i mentioned that particularly because when i said that you said that was exactly the wording had in your mind about it there was a level of fakery about it that you couldn't get beyond and it's kind of ironic that in a film about pt barnum who as hugh jackman quite rightly said in a in few was so much to do with in a faking things with making things up with with with with bending the truth that should be the overriding thing of the movie that you just look at it and go i don't believe any of the and what the ethic though and also what they were trying to do is in in in the way that hamilton which is obviously this huge broadway and now west yet unsought is using contemporary music styles but his but set in the yes in a day in and of a century old altogether.
