Even in Real Life, There Were Screens Between Us
"Caitlin Dewey was a senior in college orage when she thought she'd met the man of her dreams and then she decided to spend some time with him in person Isa Ray who recently starred in the movie little reads Caitlyn to his essay even in real life there were screens between us crawled up at the foot of my bed. My face inches from the laptop screen. I stared anxiously at Google. Chatterbox will is typing. The box told me helpfully force myself to read email. I waited for his message. Then I refresh rush my twitter feed scroll through my blog post and began brushing my teeth. Still the box said will is typing. Don't you dare get hurt by this. I met at around my toothpaste. This was a stupid idea and you knew that from the start but recognizing the stupidity of falling for someone on the Internet does not prevent you from doing it. My friends net a college radio. Dj Chats constantly with some music bloggers. She met on Tumbler. My friend to one who lives in Los Angeles days up until after three to talk to his London base girlfriend and I had just driven nearly eleven hundred miles round round trip to visit. Will I guy I met in October at a web journalism conference and got to know almost entirely on skype. I I noticed him across the table at a noisy hotel bar will own thick black frame glasses but no hairbrush comb traits that lent him the look of a basement bound attacker. If you've ever attended an Internet conference you understand how Pale skin thick glasses and scruffy hair can be attractive otherwise I can't explain it to you you in either case I liked wills weirdly overconfidence smirk and his obsession with wordpress he regaled me with the merits of plug ins and PHP until I became tired and went to bed. I'll find you on twitter. I joked when I left. I didn't expect or even want to see will again again after that weekend since he lived three states away further facetime seemed unlikely. I followed his twitter pose with detached curiosity city in January G. Chadha me to complain about work then he got drunk and message me again sometime near midnight as I uploaded photos. There's an otherwise wasted bandwidth with obvious sarcasm he wrote. Do you have that skyping. Kids talk about these days. I I've read that. Ninety percent of human communication is nonverbal skype capture that ninety percent on a low resolution video camera compresses it funnels it to a node computer and reproduces it on a screen anywhere in the world skype eliminates distance. That's why it works and and that's exactly what it did for us with my skype screen open and my Webcam on I. viscerally felt that will was sitting a food away on my bed. Ignoring The Times the picture froze or his voice cut out. I thought he looked in sound exactly like he did in person sometimes times when he leaned into the computer to read an article I'd sent him. I could see the pores on his face. We started video chatting for hours every night. Uh He from an ascetic all white bedroom me from the cupcake print corner of my studio apartment I learned that he ate takeout for every meal and slept a series of identical White v Neck t shirts and smart with one side of his mouth. When I said something clever I knew his preferred coding languages his least favourite content management system and his general hatred dancing small talk and girls in bars one one night when we talk too late I fell asleep with my laptop open and woke up seven hours later tangled in cords and he was still there asleep been the light from an open window paling young and pixellated eventually he stirred link at the camera and said Hey you. Hey I said easily. How did you sleep as the weeks went on. I told you about my last boyfriend. Agai admit in psychology class and dated for almost two years. He listened quietly his glasses reflecting my image each from a computer and gave good clear advice about letting go. I can't remember the last time I met somebody that smart and talented in ways. I certainly certainly wasn't he told me about his ex girlfriend who never appreciated his work and I texted him from classes. When I was frustrated or bored in the safety of my apartment I could see well but I can touch him. I could summon him when I wanted to talk but I never knew him in any light of in the one from his bedside lamp. This phenomenon worked in my favor as well. You know I could call him after a few drinks thanks when I felt sufficiently talkative and social I could avoid him. If I had videos to edit or blog post to write I can say whatever I wanted and risk awkwardness renews because at the end of the conversation one click of the mouse would shut him out of my room. The irony is that we flocked to the Internet for this type of safe sanitized intimacy but we want something entirely different in real life or irl is a popular term online parlance at Internet at conferences like the one where I met will twitter exploded with people celebrating Iro meetings. Oh so nice to finally see at so-and-so. Iro If so and so. I can't believe we hadn't met IRL yet. The Internet brings these people together with Hashtags and message boards but it it never satisfies them. No matter how much you love someone's blog or twitter feed it isn't there post you actually want and so so slowly cautiously will and I began circling the question of what it all meant. I really like you. He said one nine after getting home from the bar. I really like you too. I said I don't know what that means. I I wanted to find out so in early. March I rented a car begged my professor presser to let me out of Class A day early and drove five hundred forty miles to spend a long weekend in the mid sized city where we'll when I got closed closed. I called my friend to stop where I fix my makeup and Chew Gum and generally tried to calm down. Whatever it's terrible I demanded what if he's nothing nothing like I expect in fact we're was almost exactly as I expected them. Lips straight knows ooh small. Hayes allies classes. He stood waiting at the side of the street while I parked my car going forward and back four no word back until I nervously got within two feet of the curve. We kissed on the cold blustery sidewalk as the win with my thoughts around mostly. I felt relieved. I thought this works in real life. It's means something but after we kissed eight pizza and went back to his house we struggled for things to talk about in real life will start off off it nothing while we talked in real life. He had no questions about the drive or my work or the stuff that waited for me. When I went back to school. He took me out for dinner and read his email. While we waited for our food he apologized profusely but still checked his websites traffic stats while we sat in his living room mm-hmm he took me to a party at his friend's house where they proceeded to argue for hours about web design while I sat on a futons tonic stared at the ceiling drunken board and terribly concerned that I look thinner online at points. He grabbed my hand and gave me a small apologetic. Smiles seemed like a strategy game a constant dance of reaching for me and pulling back of intimacy and distance a real life and internet make believe on the last day of my visit will overslept. He rushed around around the apartment with his hair. Wet Tie tied looking for his laptop. According to the plan we made the night before he would go to work and I would leave when it suited me dropping his spare keys in the mailbox in the front hallway where I stood rubbing. My eyes will hug me goodbye and told me to drive safely. He struggled for a closing statement. It was great to see you he said at last I didn't leave right away after I showered packed and studied the books nearest fireplace a set for a long time at his kitchen counter trying to work out what happened. I didn't like being surrounded by his things. I I felt more comfortable in my room with my things and with his presence confined to a laptop screen. I wrote him a note before I left. Dear will thank you so much for having me this weekend to spend time with you. In Person I signed my name left on the counter. Then willing myself not to cry. I dropped his keys in the mailbox walks and gundy home

"But now, I think we're at a point where we're kind of finish up a little bit with the same people telling the same stories that you come out of the gate exasperated at the sort of topical problem that has nothing to do with whether or not in the land of women works as a movie, and I don't think that it's illegitimate. But it isn't just the pro- the thing that I noticed was that it wasn't just the movies, right? It's like every avenue of culture has some version of this problem. And that was the thing that I felt was to me a kind of a crisis of of thinking, and it isn't so much that the thinking being done about the way representation in ident-. Ity work in popular, culture, and other art forms isn't valid. It's just I'm kind of frustrated by like what we can in cannot talk about because the value of the change that is obviously happening, and that, you know, all the people who wanted this change to happen are excited about is too high to then say that the thing that has been given to us in the context of all this change is in very good. I hear that. I don't know if that's really how it should work. But to be fair. There was a point. I'm thinking specifically, I will I will offer boomerang as a as a case in point boomerang is an Eddie Murphy, romantic comedy, starring pretty much every famous black person from nineteen Ninety-two except maybe Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman. And it is it's about Eddie Murphy trying to choose between, Robin. Givens and eventually Halle Berry. And there was so much pressure on this movie to make money because it was the first. Yeah. I mean, the first even nominal romantic comedy to starve only black people. And there was so much pressure for this movie to make money. So that somebody else would get the fall in love with that Murphy. And a different movie. It just seemed it did shouldn't matter that this movie is an entirely successful as a romantic comedy. That pressure is old it's older than boomerang, and it's real. And there really is a case for a movie, not working, and then you sort of get the whole opportunity taken off the table because it's deemed economically, not viable. Well. The the reason I ask is you have a moment in. I think it was in that morality war story where you're talking about being at a dinner party. Oh, yeah. And you're talking about the show insecure starring. Yeah. And you're watching, but like I'm getting a little exasperated here, and some other member of the dinner party is like, what are you talking about it? So great that like she's on TV and has a show you should be happy with people like her never could get on TV before. And I was wondering in that moment. Like how you deal with that idea of well, this is important that that people's stories who are not previously on TV are being put on TV. Like what happens when those two impulses run into conflict with each other. I'll never forget that night because it was one of the like, I have a real I don't know everybody in this room feels this. I don't know if you have this. My the thing that gets my blood pressure from whatever normal blood pressure is to whatever a bad blood pressure is is being misunderstood being told that the way that I am feeling or thinking is not how I'm actually feeling thinking. So like if you said, I didn't like this movie. And I was like that's totally bullshit Wesley. You did like that movie. That would bring you to full boil. It's even worse than that. It's like you can't say that you don't like that movie because XYZ so this guy was telling me that I could not. I couldn't say what I was saying. Because ISA Ray is a black woman and to say this about ISA Ray is I mean blasphemous is too strong for what he meant. But I think that he he understood what I just took to be true. Right. I know how special ISA Ray in this moment for this TV show. I know how special these things are. But I also think that none of this stuff that we call equality works..

Like, I need to look this way. 'cause I fans or something. It's weird. Well, I just don't think people are inundated with the way they look that the way that maybe like, we are somebody is photographed a lot. And. Yeah, it definitely breeds. Insecurity.

I mean, you were even like, maybe. Okay. Like, yeah. I'm gonna go back, and I'm going to tell my whole journey, but I like the fucking set journey again. I liked it work here because I wanted to dress this anyway, and I think people should be open about what they had done and someone deemed us and they wanted to know about your veneers. And if you don't veneers or intense, your data file your real teeth down. So there's no going back like there's no you don't get your real teeth. I want I feel like people need to know that I didn't know that your teeth are gone. So you commit to veneers for life for life. Yeah. They completely like reworked my smile they laser gum line. So like, my issue is that like my gums were really high around my frontier, and then they like worked as high around the rest of the team that just smile, it's a bummer. For me and thought about my whole life, and I met this girl that I really liked because the that's fantastic. And she made me feel really comfortable, and it's really intense. It's a lot of surgeries. It's not just one surgery. I think it was like four surgeries. Yeah. Out of my birthday was fine. So came to dinner. I know you really is it really is pain free. It just takes a while. Obviously, you get novacaine. You always we want somebody that you trust too. You can really check their work. It's shellman dentistry in New York City. I love them.

I'm really proud of it. I'm always happy to talk about it. That doesn't mean that anybody else? Does anybody that information if you do it? But I I'm proud of just say like, this is something I didn't like about myself, and I dressed it. I think everybody can just know deep in their heart that like these celebrities in the Kardashians, and everyone that looks like them had stuff done and most people have had rhino, plastic, which is an job most celebrity seven, no jobs..

So because last week because us weekly is essentially, a a template and every week they just like plug names and pictures into the exact same magazine. It's very formulaic.

"isa ray" Discussed on Did She Say That with Sonnie Johnson
"Do you think I'm not mad at her? She's got a wonderful. They have beautiful kids. I'm not mad at you. But you can't go in and say, hey, you got to rebuild the black family. Why didn't you go in and rebuild a black family? Like, wow, why was it that something that was important to you? Now, you could go in and say the importance is having a father in a home. And look I have a father in home. That's something you could say my husband is in the home, and he takes care of our kids. But the black kids are going to be looking at you like, yeah, you didn't marry one of us. You didn't even pick a black, man. How you going to know about the struggles that the black man has to go through not only to making. But also to make it in a marriage to be a good father to kids to be a good role. Like, you don't even have that experience. So you can go in and you can try to make an about married you can go in you can make it about having a dad in the house, but how do you build a relationship focused around rebuilding? Black family when you didn't do it. And that's the same question at posted a black progressives that that wanna be all black power black power black power. Dislike y'all making fun of Don. Lemon because oh, he's all black power white people suck yet. He got a white husband. How is that possible? As the same exact logical question that I'm accident about this. How do you go in and make that argument? Nice Tien you there. How do you and make that argument when you don't even do it? So staying over there where ISA Ray and say the best thing for black women to do as to that, you know, worry about founding a black man and Mary outside find somebody else. Do you wanna be that cold and that mad at the interracial aspect of it? But don't go into racial and in combat telling me about the importance of the black family. Get what I'm saying. Yes, I'm not looking at you very seriously at that point. I'm kind of laughing at you at that point. Because black women have a whole bunch of shit. We gotta deal with black men have a whole bunch of sick that they gotta deal with and best recipe poss- deal. What it is. If we deal with the shit together. So whatever I will deal with all the comments to come after. I'll just have to deal with it. I stand on that. And I don't back them into in mind, Astana, a stand on that. And I don't back down. I don't care who you. I don't care Mary. I'm not gonna hate don't you marry somebody else, but please don't go into racial and then come back and tell me about the black family and importance Larkin. Larkhall cultural issue to address I mean, not saying that that one person is right or wrong. But you're still bringing up a reality of what people are thinking. You can't do outreach or speak to people. If you don't know what they're thinking right at all. It's a fair conversation. To say, well this marriage. Let's go on to the next. All right. General Motors announced closing hands from plants this week the laying off fifteen percent of the workforce. And immediately all the Trump haters started tagging me in this. As a rebuke of the president for starters. Trump aside GM salesman down about eleven percent. Then cancel about four cars. They weren't selling including Chevy Cruz because no one was buying not because of terrorists f four they cancelled most of their cars because the trucks are the ones that are in. Now the money that's being saved for the salaries. They're going to go to the company rebranding itself to work on self driving cars in the moment that was announcer stock shot. So as point out that. That this is not a Trump issue. But this is a GM management issue. This going on here. That's wanted to correct. This new cycle because we're going to be hearing this clear through twenty twenty at least. That's what a lot of the reports have said that this is going to hurt him an election time.

"isa ray" Discussed on The Thrive Global Podcast
"Company, and they were also concerned about a lot of other things like selling the company. So I decided that I would try to create a space where I would have a direct relationship with an audience. Through my social media channels primarily because seventy percent of people now get their news and information from social media and try to create a daily diet and a touchstone for people who follow me about the important news stories and also through video and through a daily publication, which were in the process of of actually putting together now. And additionally, you know, I also saw that brands wanted to be associated with high quality content as the advertising landscape has changed. So I'm working with brands I respect like Proctor and gamble. A company. That's really put a stake in the ground when it comes to gender equality environmental issues. And even did a short film about the talk about mothers talking to their African American sons about driving while black, and they really impressed me with the work. They're doing. And there are other companies that I think do want to stand for something. They don't want to just sell, soap or shampoo or cars or life insurance, or you know, all kinds of products. I think they want to stand for something you saw that with Nike and the Colin Kaepernick ads, and I think increasingly they want to be able to associate themselves with high quality, storytelling. So that's another aspect of the business. And that's how getting their came about. I said to Proctor and gamble. The metoo time's up movement is super important. But how else can we inspire young women and show them the way and give them some advice on how they might achieve success. So we profiled six women who I admire who I think achieved a lot of success. Eva Chen on a garden. Isa Ray Boza, Saint John Bethany Frankel and Jennifer Fisher who started a very successful jewelry company. And we sort of talked to them about how they got how they got there. And so those are the kinds of projects I'm looking for things that will inspire people elevate the conversation and make them think, and we just started this summer. So we're on our way to hiring more people and getting the word out and launching a lot of different projects and also being associated with documentaries. And that was such a long answer. I'm so sorry area. I love it. Because everybody knows you're amazing history. And I wanted people to know what you're doing now. And I think you're onto something big because Browns really want to be identified with adding value to people's lives, not just selling products. And we just finished a campaign who did with being around Pantene. And because there was that game study that shows that only one in ten women feel good about a hub. All these women are here. Now, are you feeling good about your hair?.

Even though our show speaks very specific black experience the black LAX. So much of what we're trying to talk about our relationship issues. And also a lot of workplace issues, we spent a lot of time thinking about and talking about what is going through at work, you know, because her romantic life, you know, sort of it is what it is. And then her friendship with Molly, you know, any any one can identify with friendship issues in workplace issues. And then there's a specific point of view about being a black millennial that we also want to talk about, you know, and so all those things, and but it's also so universal. I watched that show. Like, oh, my God experience that I wonder if that's even part of the conversation or you just like is that just assumed as you said like this almost goes without saying that the universals in the specific. Yeah. I mean, not really I mean, we, you know, HBO kind of lets us do it's funny because like I season we did feel like the little show that could. So we were just like we can just do whatever we want guys we have. Unlimited amount of time, which I now have seen that that's a luxury HBO, you know. Yeah. Right. Your show. Yeah. We love it. You know? And then, you know, the show hit, you know. But for me, I think we we always want to make sure we are having a conversation within our show because I- writer's room can get very heated about just issues, and we'll have topics we'll discuss things, and I they called me they called me so soapbox been in the room. Because if you talk about something that I feel strongly about and then the room is a largely female in. So all the women will will start getting year girl, we agree about this all on the same page, and I'm like well. I love I love to prod them. Just then I would always do this. Well, as a gay, man. It was it was. So we always found I know a lot of rooms run this way. But the things that get the biggest heated discussion, we know you have to put in the show we had the conversation about oral sex and black women versus white women or non black women was a huge huge week long debate about when do you do it is it acceptable? How you know what I mean? And we were like never knew there was such varied opinions about it. You don't. But there's so many layers to it that we were like, well, this has to go show. That's really cool. All right before we wrap up mix tape when this is premiering it will be on net. Flicks early twenty twenty which is the crazy net. Flicks. Why go three I know. It's insane. So it's. We right until the end of this year, we shoot next year. It's ten episodes. And then I mean networks has so much amazing programming that you're just like we'll just stand in line and they're doing an amazing job. And it's extrordinary their Netflix.

Yes, it's like we're number one and in terms of all the countries in the world whose it's like us number one. And then it's like the next eight, two through eight. If you combine how much they spend, we still have that more than they all serve. How do you have a tale, a WalMart? Oh, a piece of place, but you gotta tank. Podcast, but I'm just saying this and then the so the only thing to say, I don't have to say this. I'm sorry for saying what I wasn't feeling ISA Ray. I wasn't either no purpose in it. It was a stunt casting who it was a stunt. It did feel like a stunt casting, and it did feel like she's she's flexing her muscles. You know what I mean? She she, this is she's done. She probably insecure. She's done insecure, and then she's done. Movie hope to help it probably get like the fact that she did it affect the compo the Regina hall. The role that she had was like, okay, cool. She's she's a speaker. She can do that. You know what I mean? Like it was like the funeral. I was like, we don't need. Isn't good, and it's totally not fair. It's totally not fair. But I was thinking about her about her speech announced thing about the two speeches. We in black has been like the one at the. Beginning and. Hawkins and then Harry Belafonte and I was like, that's what they were trying to do that did not have it wasn't, you know, hey, not happy. You know what? There's a lot of positives for instance. Okay. I'm sorry. I'm just, I know there's like I have to say this, but I know there other people out there who are like us radio. The only one now now they're probably much more of you who are like, I love USA Ray you, but you know, but. By the way. I also love. You know what I'm saying here? So here is one thing insecure.

"Of what he's going through as a copy in the situation. You have Regina hall as her mom Caja. Apple who's on Riverdale plays her boyfriend who's not used a lot in the movie and ISA Ray who people off from insecure at the Mackey place, her uncle that is like this gang kingpin of the neighborhood. And I think Ryan I had a lot of trouble with that character, and what is his role in this story. And how the movie ends. It's interesting because I've started to read the book I started a while ago. And then I had put it down because I had something else I needed to read, and I never have picked it back up again knock because they don't want to have the time. But when I think about what I know of the book. There really is the benefit of seeing the situation through the eyes of the characters that you are focusing on and knowing what the thoughts are right. And I can see how I almost think it's important to have both the book and movie as a companion because there are things you were going to get out of the book that you can't get out of the movie and the opposite is also true. Right. And so I always I'm I'm always hopeful that when people choose to see a movie that is based on a book that they do take the time to also read the book because they think it sort of completes the picture for you in the best way and a movie like this that is so topical. That has such issues about race police brutality and all of these issues that go into this for her systemic issue. We were talking about are the movies, the like black clansmen or Mon might or twelve years of slave that experience movies that I think tell this. This story better and more pointed way, you knew coming out of black klansman. What Spike Lee wanted you to get out of that movie? And it was very very clear, and that's why that movie is the best movie of the year. Right. One doesn't quite get there. Because it's kind of generic and away. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So how many tickets because I think at its base level it will affect teens, and I think people talk, hopefully, okay, if you have zero action movie, the Nazis and talk to somebody about that. Exactly. All right now. Finally, we have to get to this. Because everybody's talking about a star is born. Everybody's talking about. And let me tell you. I've seen all four versions avatars born we talk about it on a new episode of the podcast, Paul shipping because I'm podcast one mytalk when I was on one dot com. And.

Very well. Is there anyone that not not in a mean way? But you were like, oh shoot. They didn't quite they were a little disappointing to me. Yes. I mean, you know as good as it is to make the best dressed list of also fundamental worth stress list. Let's be honest. I expect more from ISA Ray from insecure, and I didn't really like she was wearing this jumpsuit that. It was like just a mess for me. It was like a pretty blue. I just didn't like it. Didn't do anything for me. I did not like Betty gilpin from glow, which I love she plays the liberty bell. But she just wore Mike the salmon. Yeah. Nothing like it was pretty boring bliss didn't look good. And then the other one I guess I've always kind of had a problem with her. I don't think she's ever really had like a red carpet moment, Alexis Bledel, I feel renaissance in her career after Gilmore girls would Handmaid's tale and hire someone to dress. You. You can. She was like that show. But like all the actresses on the show are so high glamour, you're nominated. You should not be wearing like. Show.
