"This restaurant called babo at the time. Run by crazy crazy. Mario batali exactly that was that first day. By how we know species beginning very auspicious beginning and the thing is like. I believe in this. I believe that like i don't know why. But i just knew. From the way we communicated that we would be together for a very very long time because he just is so honest he so honest. He doesn't lie about anything he has. He has problems. Because you can't light you know it's like when you don't lie when you can't lie you have a lot of problems because you can't. You can't have social interactions. Like he can't have kind of superficial social. Social interactions right. And that's when we have dinner parties we have stuff. He has a difficult time because he doesn't like everybody you know and he can't pretend to. He can't pretend to like people as easily as you can. I can you know that horrible. I hope he's not going to do that. If it was refreshing. I love that no poker faces a good thing. Actually yes for now that you you've been married. I think eight or nine years. Well as yeah. We've known each other for in twenty years. I mean we've been together for twenty years but we've been married for about nine years nine years and has been quarantine together and lockdown learned. Anything new about the relationship or more so a what makes you assume that we are locked down together. I'll because we're not no we're not. I mean we were for the first month. We were together in bridgehampton for the first month. We sort of did like every all the other chickens and fled from new york city and cambridge abdin and after about a month of that he announced that he was going back to the city. Knows like what you're what are you up. And he was like no. I was like well if you do. We're breaking up because you can't come. What are you talking. you know. it's like. It took me a minute to understand why anybody would do that. You know and then he just did it. And i was. I was literally crying for two days. Because i thought he was going into the mouth of this crazy and he was just totally cool about it and anyway so then we started doing this thing where he would come test and then come here and then i would go there and test and we've been doing that ever since we've been doing this thing. Where every ten days or so we spend three or four days together and we speak every day and we facetime every everyday. And i'm telling you it's the best thing it was his idea. And it's the best thing in the world you know and and and it's not because we weren't cohabitating beautifully because we were you know it's like we're copacetic. We work very well in the same small spaces but he just didn't see it the same way that i did and he didn't want to stay and just so much an adult can do to another adult to make them do something you know. We don't share bedrooms. We never share bedrooms. He has one bedroom. And i have another bedroom and i really think that. That's the key to our our. Well i call it. Success success as a couple Yeah and i swear to you this this this not cohabitating through this has been the most unbelievable fantastic thing and it's brought so close. I know that sounds a little crazy but no one. Does this opportunity to miss each other. That's right that's a y'all cohabitating with your others with your specific significant others. Yes both are. We both are. We have not left each other side and nine months but so far so good good. That is amazing. I i love that. Yeah we're we were used to it because we both generally work from home so it has an adjustment. Hasn't been that massive so far so good. Tell us about the show. it's good. I swear it's really good. Yeah i mean. I i love it again. I wanted so much in this thing. you know. i've been doing it forever. I've been doing clubs and finally cafe carlyle for about this. Be like this was supposed to be the fifth year of the residents but instead it became a virtual residence and we all kind of speaking of testing and quarantining and doing all that we all did that sort of potted i guess and did it and therefore for like four days and did these shows and rehearsals and stuff and and and it was such a after first of all. You know this idea that i was doing that. Mostly you know like when. I wasn't at the carlisle. I was traveling around. The country. Doing shows in different theaters in different clubs. And i love it. I think i love doing that. More than anything you know with my band and sing a little bit and telling these stories and jokes and stuff and interacting with audiences. Whether it's like you know one hundred people or two thousand people right. It's like you always get this energy from an audience and so like going into it. I was excited about being in the same room as like six other musicians and working with them in that way. Because there's nothing like that. You know in terms of right producing mood music. But i was also like very reticent and scared of not having an audience the only thing that kind of motivated me was the vision. I had for the show which was kind of like you know. It's a cross between a performance and a documentary about the performance and it's a cross between performance and like you know bits of rehearsal and might interaction with this band. That is so smart and so hilarious. And if i say something a lot of times they react whether they laugh or add something. That's how it works in the club. So that's how it works in the thing and it really is great because it makes you into the audience when you stream it. You really feel like you're part of an audience. You know. I mean as oppose to as opposed to like you know these things that we've been watching which are beautiful beautiful beautiful like the parade and the tree lighting thing and it's like there's nobody there and like everybody goes at the end of a number. Nobody claps you know here. It's like the end of a number and the boys react and ben goes. Oh i fucked up. And i go no. No no one's listening you know you didn't thought it was whatever right. I mean it's hilarious. You'll you have to see it. You have to send us at the time that this comes out there will be two episodes out one or the guests is suzanne vega. One is jackie hoffman. That's right and a and it's on the broadway world streaming events at broadway world. I think it's called events dot broadway world.

"What. What's robin is the robin byrd. Show still i don't think so. I met her. I knew her. I was never on. The show. never asked me to be on the show. But i was never on the show and and i met her a few times and i can't remember what context she may have come to one of my fashion shows that i can't yet the great robin or dirt famously attacked by a deer in fire island. Obviously not that famous. Because i never heard of it but wow yeah. True story. True story in the pines got bit by a deer. Those were. I do miss a channel thirty five. It couldn't is now in today's climate public access public access. There's a lot to be said about that. You're not just not just public supported. Actually you can get in there and make the program dating like for you because you were established and successful so young so those years in new york. Yeah outage you navigate dating and and you know when everyone is trying to get knowing sort of. Who's there for the right reason and well you know when i first started my company in the eighties. When i first started working. I moved out of my mom's house when i was twenty. I made it out of there. I moved to new york city from brooklyn. I've been i've been. I've been going to school in the city since high school. I went to performing arts high school. Parsons school design then. Finally when i graduated. I left and i got an apartment and it was like the beginning of my my life just blossomed. It was the best time. Ever having my own place. And paying my rent. And i and i would say that's why i went into the fashion business because it was easier to get a job than it was in show business and and the most important part was getting the hell out of there. You know that was it. I didn't care what had to sacrifice. Nothing mattered as much. Because i knew to. My artistic spirit meant the most. I had to make it out of there. So that was the first thing then like Somehow aids was a big thing in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. When i was twenty it was a very strange moment for aids. And i had just come out and i started with sorry to have sex and if i wasn't already terrified of the subject of sex and men this just literally stopped it down you know from the age of say twenty to the age of thirty five or something. I had as many lovers as i could count on. Okay two hands you know but still you. You heard about people who were younger than me or older than me especially older than me because they were used to like the fire island thing where they go have sex with twenty people every night and anyway so there was this moment when it was kind of beautiful in that it was a little frustrated was a little bit frustrating. Because you couldn't really sleep with people but it was this beautiful thing about just like i remember in the in the middle eighties though these had these gay dances at columbia and it was like what. Excuse me like. There's a gay an openly gay dance in an auditorium somewhere and like columbia university and it was fabulous like we were so happy that we can actually be going to again and then there was this amazing society of parties. Well there were many many society of parties like there was the beige party that happened. There was like this boys night thing that happened. And it was run by these art directors. At i can't think of the name of art direction the firm anyway and so like you hosted it and want someone hosted it here and someone. Who's in one night. I hosted it at my little studio in soho which at the time was so cool. You know but it was so lovely to think that it was this. I can't tell you. And now i don't know if a gay person feels this kind of such a such a privilege to be in a room with other gay people you know like at that time it was just a great great great privilege and a great feeling of security with your with your with your. You know your your brothers and sisters. Don't felt like such a great like the miniature walk into a bar. You just felt this bonding. And i'm not sure they get that anymore. And also like the other thing i've noticed is like because now there are so many different kinds of sexualities and sexual identities and gender identities like the groups are not necessarily always communicating peacefully. You know sometimes. I understand the anger. Like you heard me getting so angry before it families and that issue now imagine if you were like a trans person and someone called you the wrong pronoun after a while it gets very annoying and so you get really angry and i understand that you know and i see it as as a great development. There's no but in the sentence. Like i don't think that people need to look back on how it used to be. I'm just telling you that. I used to feel extremely privileged to just be in a in a gay bar. It was you know. And so like but i completely get what i think is happening now. All of these different complete all of these different groups have identities and for them such an incredible privilege. I hope that they feel. It's this incredible privilege. And they're on this fantastic upward trajectory towards towards not inclusion. Because no one wants that. Nobody wants to be tolerated or included. What i'm saying is integration. People want to be integrated and and that's been my goal for just gay. People gay people need to be integrated or still to be degraded. So imagine like other parts of other identities other queer identities. How how did you and your husband meet on the street. Walking the dog i was. I was walking my dog totally. And i notice in from across the street and not even across like eleventh street. It was across fifth avenue so it was like i mean he has to be pretty darn cute to be noticed and we kind of made eye contact and we and we passed and that was it and i walked around the corner and then he came running after me and it was like. Wow and what did he he said. Oh my god. You're that designer. And i'm like yes i am and it was finally not someone going. Oh my niece wants an internship. Can you like it was like actually. You're so cute like you know. My name is arnold and it was like this wonderful thing and he was so kind of. What's the word like open about it. And so gorgeous gorgeous you know. And so kind of like again. Like that twenty-second thing where you know. It's not an axe murderer. You know and so by the way. I was talking about like my life till my mid thirties when i broke up with my longtime boyfriend. A three or four years name douglas. After that honey just became the biggest like sort of horror and fordham slept with everybody for a really long time and by that point aides had gotten down and we knew that use a condom and you have safe sex and you could believe in something. So that's what happened. And so arnold and i was like a pickup on the street. I was walking my dog. And i was like. Oh you know this before smartphones. Oh know. I don't have a pen. Why don't you come upstairs and give me your phone number and let you know right like totally totally. No sorry you kidding i. Don't you dare apologize. No no no i mean. I don't know about the generation. Now if they do that sort of thing. I sure hope they do. I sure hope they do. And then there was there a fashion first day after that. Yes yes there was an old fashioned for a state and we went to..

"How did we get here as how did like everyone get brainwashed about this idea of family and community you know like how did that happen in this world to me. It's so counter counter to the so not true you know but the thing about how family of the only people that understand you. The only people that really love you. I find that to be the opposite of the truth. You know. I mean. I like my family. I guess you know but it's like they don't understand me. They never understood me know. I became what i became in spite of that. In spite of that formative experience it was hell. And you know and my mom says to me who i love. I love my mom. And she goes like oh. I didn't know that you blah that you had such a trial. And i'm thinking well you did note. You just couldn't look at it because it was too ugly for you or your negligent. And you weren't looking you know which is it right. So yeah so. I'm not sure how families get such a big consideration in this world you know and how community get such a big consideration. And what did you see. That thing called uncle frank on yet but everyone don't know you. Mustn't it's not the story we need. I don't agree with that movie nut for one minute definition because it goes on. It's one it starts out in this incredible. He's telling his niece. That uncle frank is this this fag living through this terrible exclusion from his family. He moves to new york. He meets the sky and they're together in this apartment and it's very scary. When i was in the eighties coming out right. It was scary. Now imagine the sixties this happen right and and it's just wonderful actor in this wonderful actress and he says to her. You know you got to be you're going to be like. Don't let them tell you who you're going to be and then it's one more story about this this this homosexual who goes back to his family and has to make things right with his family and it really is like wrong. We have to stop. We have to stop proliferating that bullshit about how homosexuals have to go back to their families and make things. Okay we do not. We do not stop it already. It made me so mad. It made me so mad one more story like that. I'm really busy store. I have to say aww very fragmented and there are people. I don't speak to in there and and people who don't come from broken families are like you have to make things right. He's your dad wash. It's no them suck. Suck your family seriously okay. I said it. I said it. I feel titled the fun family. I don't know what to say. I hope people can understand. This is my experience and you know if they're if they're in denial get out of denial or you know if you're one in a hundred thousand families that is happy. Go on you know go. What was it. Tolstoy said every happy family is happy in the same way but it doesn't the same. He's not happy in the same way. Every unhappy family is unhappy in different ways. Yeah it's so good. It's a great quote. I don't think we got it right. But someone google g. circle down. We circle the block. Yeah and the message to to you know to reconcile to grow is never it is always the burden of the query s. You know. it's really never genoa. Ever helps you down help you. I mean like if your mother finally. I went to see that i was like she. They do help you. It's not that edge of sorry. We love that show. We went to see like. I don't know three years ago in london called jamie. Did you see that and you know. How interesting is that when your mother gives you your first pair of like you know red monster shoes. It's not that interesting. You know you kind of want a little bit more conflicts right. Sorry that was sort of a joke. That was sort of that. Does concern me though. The the idea of queer kids being accepted so much earlier and so much more fully. Will i think lead to a generation of boring people. Whether that's good that's what equality looks like. But yeah i mean i'll tell you what like what i'm not that i don't care i don't care i think her like when i see things i go like. Could you imagine if my mom blah blah blah right or my dad or my uncle or my teacher. Could you imagine if they helped me in that way i would be. I would be. You know what they're going to be right. They might be boring. You know what i would love to see happen in the world is if like is if somehow when you say you're gay it somehow defaults to sex all the time like it always refers to the sex we have as opposed to like straight people like they don't it's just sex but when you say you're gay this layer of like the sex that we have that is kind of like sitting on top of the trifle and you can't dig down into the trifle the desert you have to get through this layer of like the sex that we have you know what i mean because somehow like you straight stories can be about love you know automatically you. Don't think oh these people do this you right. You don't think that you think. Oh they're in love. It's so romantic. It's so sweet innocent whereas like when you think of any gay story you. I think of like people whatever we do you all is involved exactly. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah in your memoir. I am which everyone must buy and read if they have not already you. You talk about your early days coming out relying on the sex line. Could you describe i yes. It's like it was like early grinder grinder exactly and it was amazing and it. Was this hilarious thing where you'd call. It was so expensive. And i didn't care because like i was kind of making money but the thing i always thought it was like someone seeing this phone. Bill like my accountant is seeing like sex sex sex sex line two thousand dollars. Someone's doing that somewhere. Because you know i don't really at that time i wasn't paying bills is not my sort of wheelhouse so the point is that it was great because you could actually hear someone you could hear..

"What are the beautiful movies that you watch over and over again. What are the be. I mean you name it. I think the movie that. I never had so funny. Rosemary's baby just keeps coming up in bright. The red shoes keeps coming up a july gene. Keeps coming up right. Like i don't know there are movies that keep coming up that i keep watching over and over again. And you know. I'm not a print queen like i don't really know about prince of course in a screening and someone asked my opinion and i'm in an edit session go yeah it could be this color that color but you haven't lived darling until you've seen the red shoes projected by bruce goldstein at the film forum. I mean he. You haven't lived until you've seen. The color is projected on a screen like that. I mean you die you die. Trust me you die. Yeah so it's such a massive trip. I bet what is the future of the film form how how are those revived. The film forum is so beloved and so kind of like kept afloat by its supporters. And its board. I think they're going to be okay through this. I do. I do okay. Here's by the way bruce goldstein. Just made this unbelievable documentary about naked city which he sent me. I mean so great so great the dining s tiniest tiniest little details about that movie that you would never have known and it was all shot of new york city on location. Amazing naked city. See that cbs's movie it's great. Sorry where was this. This is awesome the flip side of my of my earlier question. I guess is. Are there young people that you look at now. Maybe in the fashion world entrepreneurs designers or or anyone. And you're like okay. Now you're giving me hope you are getting excited about. Yes there are a few. Here's the thing. I can't remember their names. I know there's one of them is called christopher. John rogers and i really like what he does because he uses color a lot. And he's coming onto something he's about to be great. And then there's this other one that i love and i think he's european. I forgot his name. But i just love him. I can't even remember his name. He might it. Sounds like it might be like scottish or something like that. But he's very kooky well. I can't remember his name. Sorry but he's great. How's that for an answer. Someone i like. Yeah exactly and as far as like filmmakers of course there are so many that i love i love greta. Gerwig such a good filmmaker. I love. I love this idea of. I love this is what's interesting to me is like you know the fact that now. Maybe maybe you there's more of an intellectual merit things like. It's not necessarily just the best filmmaker. It's like the best filmmaker who happens to be a woman who happens to be a black person you know array right. Finally i mean that finally because now finally going to see like other stories other great stories right. That's one way to make stuff happen is to do it that way. Well your story By the way. Is i know you you. You grew up in a syrian orthodox jewish community in brooklyn. Some i know you've described yourself. His The listener will just well. I rolled my eyes. Because i mean this again. But you do have to talk about it. I you know. I wrote a memoir. Did you read any part of it. Because i'm telling you like. I love my memoir. I'm proud that thing. I do things mike. Yeah by it or something or yeah you should see the show but the book is really good. You know like i gave it a very very very considerable time of my life and considerable attention in my life and so i'm proud of it but yeah i mean. The thing that that i marvel about is how how..

"Right it's a yeah exactly Robert mapplethorpe oh of course but you know watching you and your peers in that movie i it really strikes me how much everyone is at even at the time is so steeped in in art history and culture understands the references and i maybe this is just me being elderly but you know i have this concern that the next generation of just share that and a lot of it has to do with like the power of social media obviously and just people are being rewarded for things other than talent and true skill and i just wondering what you make of that. Well you know. I mean a few things one. You're right to your wrong because like you have to understand like kids. How old are you matt. Forty oh my god. You're forty congratulations. Darling look for it anyway. So likely the kids. Well how old are you dave. Are you in forty nine point. What's excuse me you're like my contemporary okay. Serious a hundred years old of the new way. sorry no. I'm ten years older than forty. I'm fifty eight but anyway so fantastic. The point is that but listen to this because like the kids. The kids right. They know something we don't know they do. You know they know something that we know. So that's where that's why you're wrong. Okay but why you're right is because like shame on them. They have it all at their fingertips and they don't know how to look at it. They don't even know how to look at it. You know my husband is your age. Right he's forty nine. And i even he even ten years younger than me. I notice how he watches things. Like how we watch as in-depth movies and tv things. He watches it like like. He's like he's watching. Tv he's watching tv and he's on his phone like googling things you know like on instagram and stuff and he's watching and it's like no no no you have to watch this. This is very beautiful. They took pains to shoot this. But by the way like. I'm guilty of that now to you know even like the most incredibly beautiful films. Maybe because i've seen them you know a hundred times. But but i also am scrolling and googling things while i'm watching you know but but but so that's one part of this like the fact that we can't do one thing we have to be doing trillion things and that's how we're being trained by corporations to do stuff you know and i am guilty of it so i can't go. You know you people who do this. We do this but the thing. I actually gets me mad about like younger. People is that you know like there. Isn't this sense of urgency to know history. You know like. I remember when i was coming up in the fashion business when when i was like coming up in like other businesses like the entertainment business and i felt it was my duty also. I loved seeing movies. I was at a revival house at it that easy. It wasn't as easy as it is today. By the way if you try to get there. There was a certain benefit about blockbuster video they had every fucking tight like every movie that was ever made. I mean i'm not saying. They had a good print on a video on a video tapes but they had every chorus our picture that you ever wanted to see that every antonioni picture that you ever had every seek a picture every every single. Go dark picture every picture that you could ever think of. And just every weekend i would do these festivals and even in my in my apartment pints of ice cream just watching every god damn visconti picture. That was ever made in chronological order. And then like. When i wasn't doing that i was at one of ten unbelievable revival houses in new york that we're having greta garbo festivals. Buster keaton festivals is something right. Yeah more elizabeth. Taylor does ages and ages like of silent pictures that we had sit through because god forbid at a dinner party like someone would bring up. You know like peppy loco. And you'd go like peppy lou. What the fuck are you talking about. And then you'd have to go like oh yeah peppy limo. And then you'd run home and read petty and and it was amazing and it was worth it and you just sat there and watch the damn thing you know and so i just a mad at the kids. You know that you say to them like any of that stuff. And they're like what are you even talking. And that's what i'm afraid of. You know i'm really if that's what makes me scared. That's what scares me. That was a rant. That was absolutely folks. Not to brag. But i grew up in a teeny tiny town in rural ohio. It is actually classified as a village and sometimes los angeles talking on the phone to loved ones back home. They're going through some stuff and i say to them. Hey have you tried therapy. It's helped me a ton and they say. Do you know where i live..

"Have all these electrical storms and and the tiniest little elevator and i kept thinking like nice. I'm going to be in an elevator in the middle of the fucking storm get stuck in the elevator and it was also like at the on the bottom floor of this apartment building there. Was this crazy like cancer clinic. And so i always felt like the chemicals just permeating the walls of that crazy complex in the central west end. It's what it sounds like. Maybe i don't know honestly someone drives me to replace and i just go. You know. i've been to los angeles a thousand times a thousand times. I practically lived in los angeles. I still don't know if you say. Oh you know. Sunset'll i'm like okay. Thank you send a driver. You know because. I won't get there otherwise. Yeah let's talk obituaries. deaths. Well today sarah leyland. Did you see that. She was a great ballerina. Oh sarah palin. I mean when i was a kid i saw her dance. I'm sure i mean honestly. I know i've seen film about her. But i'm sure i've seen her dance million times. Because like i guess like she was in the seventies or the eighties at new york city ballet mostly the seventies which was when. I was going like a lot when i was in high school. I went to ballet almost every night.

Well that's a spoiler alert doesn't happen for a really long. You have a lot of seasons with this lady okay. Finally when she dies this entire family around she has a stroke and she can't talk and it's so good it's so well acted really acting so good anyway. There was she had seen. That's the way to go go. Yeah exactly out that's it. Are you a soap opera person. No you don't think so. Not really no. I used to dabble in all my children. Because i liked erica. 'cause she was s but not really know those unique one in that it was funny in. Its way yeah. It was very funny son. Aware chic also had like a kind of sheikh edge to it. Yeah smartness there was a smartness to it exactly seeking. She goes same before you got on. Just rewatch unzipped last night with composer documentary. That just turned twenty five and unions. Such a perfect encapsulation Mid-nineties there the. I wish we in many ways. We could sort of live in right now. But this is the heyday of just. It's it's it's you with. Like all of the the models in your sandra bernhard on. And i'm just curious like what is your relationship to nostalgia. And and and what is it like for you looking back at your younger self I mean i'm not sure nostalgia is the word right looking back and nostalgia. They're not necessarily the same thing you know like nostalgia tends to be a little bit like maudlin and you know it's like oh my darling pass where i'm so sad. I don't and feel kind of melancholy because of blah blah right and i don't like to indulge in that you know that's creepy little bit and yet we can't help ourselves sometimes we just feel it and sometimes it can be sweet right that kind of thing but looking back listen. His history is a very very big part of everything i do. You know like whether it's you know shows that the carlisle or shows and writing stuff or it's about even fashion. You know you look back sometimes and i know that everybody's looking back at the nineties. Now i remember when i started in the late eighties. Everybody was looking at the sixties. You know the late sixties the middle sixties and then. We went through this period. Where everybody was looking at the seventies and i mean it is kind of challenging. Because you go like well. Why don't we have that kind of freedom. You know but now that. I'm so old. And now that i know that like now that now that i know what it was like twenty years ago you know like in twenty five years ago in the ninety s now that i know it i understand more why it happens and i understand more. Why kids look at their parents. Lives with this kind of almost like envy like. Why can't we be so free but darlings in twenty five years from now when you look at this time and you go like oh and the kids are going like hey it was so great in the two thousand and twenty right. You're going to go like yeah not really except i'm glad you think so. I'm glad you think it was great. Living through it was talking about this last night. Living through like we were talking about douglas. Sirk earlier you know like living through. Vat i would probably have hated it or something but douglas sirk movies. Yeah but looking back on them. They are amazing. Beautiful works of art. You know and by the way like speaking of maudlin right like i was using that word a lot earlier today says something about like stuck in my ballot of words for the day. But like you know look when you give it give it thirty years give anything maudlin thirty years and it becomes like this incredible work of art like for instance like like is i douglas. Sirk or judy garland. Judy garland in her day. I'm sure people like really judy like. Yeah could you be more campy right and now you look back on. Its most beautiful thing. You've ever seen james dean. I remember my parents telling me. Like when james dean was alive. He was just like an actor that you sort of a little bit paid attention to are maryland. The same thing. They weren't sensations bat. I know in death. Yes but i guess. James dean marilyn monroe. They worse sensations for a moment. They had the world looking at them for a moment. But i know what she means and like. I was just thinking about this last night. I was thinking. Like maybe i should have a drug habit or something and people would take me more seriously as like this phenomenon right like maybe then my memoir would win a book right. It's like it seems like you have to have an addiction or die really young for this kind of right. That's one easy way to make it in this world it. Yeah do it exact.

"This question. I'm watching this unbelievable. Swedish show called the restaurant on prime which pay for it. Like not only have to pay for prime like whatever. It is one hundred dollars a year but now you have to pay like twenty dollars to get like the each season but it's so darn good. It's like it's kind of melodrama about a restaurant family like and it starts at the end of world war two at literally starts at the end like on. Vj day and like it's this fabulous big celebration the streets of sweden and stockholm. And it's so beautiful. It's it it it's kind of like it's very mellow it's melodrama. You know douglas sirk or something right. It's like douglas sirk. Except it's very very gritty and very modern and tells the whole story and not just the outer parts of the story the way douglas sirk had to his day you know. He couldn't mention certain things so he didn't. But you kind of knew what was going on here. The kind of give you everything. Right but the cutler the only reason i bring up douglas sirk because the color of the series is really beautiful and they don't know how they do these sort of establishing shots of the streets of stockholm in the period. I think they must have came. Come across like some trolls of of exterior shots. You know like available exterior shots and they look colorized to me anyway. It's so visually like incredible to watch. It's like acid trip. Sometimes and the acting is gorgeous and there are some gorgeous gorgeous people in it. They're a two women in it. That are so beautiful. I cannot believe that they haven't been sort of hollywood has swooped up and just devoured them and there's also some fine lookin' men to trust me some. Yeah okay well. Just sweep sweden darling sweden. Yes and the furniture. Oh i mean like you know and just like the hospital. I said melodrama right so like every other scene takes place in the hospital. But you haven't lived until you've seen like a nineteen fifties modern swedish hospital room like you haven't it's all white and two totally blown out. It's so gorgeous so gorgeous. I am in all the way in seriously. I'm telling you like you don't even need you. Sometimes you need to see the first episode of the first two episodes and then it's like. Oh my god breaking bad what the fuck you know. But in this case like literally from the credits. You're like i'm in. i'm in okay. Also i love the sound of the language. I love the sound of the swedish language. Doc dumb duck. Yeah i i went there twenty years ago or so and fell in love with it and have always wanted to go back. And i've never done it. I've i want to go. For the summer solstice. The sun goes down at two in the morning and rises it to forty five. And everyone's just take the week off work and one of the one of the things.

Oh music something a little night music my see. My brain is not connecting. Could doing great anyway little night music. I directed it in saint louis at the opera festival and it was so beautiful and i thought about going. I didn't have the time to go. And i always felt guilty about not going and just making assumptions about like swedish culture and swedish people. It was i guess. it was like before cultural appropriation. Something like how dare you and yet. I think it was the most beautiful thing i've ever done. You know everyone's beautiful and you eat reindeer breakfast lunch and dinner now. Where where did you hang out in saint louis. That's my. oh. I don't know the lou. Darling the lou is a great town. We went to a million places at the hotel.

"And gentlemen we are back with. is it mizrahi. Alot high is. He was right in his glasses right during the q. Glasses the warm shoes. I'm drowning some pellegrino water. Oh yeah you are having. We'll tow chico. i'm your west coast counterpart right now. It is from what. I understand of snowy day in new york city. Yeah i mean of course. I love the snow. There are a lot of snow haters. But i love the snow. Snow lover lover. Except that you can't at this time in history duck into julius like melissa mccarthy and can you ever forgive me all i wanna do on a snowy day in new york city course this. This is even more snowy than that. I mean this is this kind of snow or it became sleet in the middle and then more snow than more sleet and so it's layers of ice at this point so you really can't walk and that's not just like a really old person saying don't hurt yourself seriously. This is like a not. You can't even walk outside but outside often. Are you getting out and trudging through that. Well you know. I went out once this morning to get the newspaper. Because i can't read. I read stuff online. And i read the new york times online but i have to. I don't know why. I have to see the obituaries every single day in print in newsprint from the new york times. I mean that's a crazy thing. I've been doing since i can since high school. I must see the and the other thing i have to do with. News in. non newsprint is the crossword puzzle. I can't do the damn thing on my phone. i just can't. He either can't through sunday without doing it. It's well. I mean if you really wanna talk about it. I find sundays to be like too long and thematic them. When they're really hard. And not thematic i gotta tell you Sorry we're opposites there. I love a good theme. And in fact once i figured out in team filled in all the long answers i kind of do lose interest. Well that's what i'm saying. It's li- it's not that interesting because it's like. Oh a theme. Oh really oh you add like three letters instead of you know. It's just whatever. Yeah yeah. I am. But i love lou. Last sunday's new york times had a whole puzzle section today. Did it had puzzle section your king with a giant crossword that that was the whole center page comes both sides of giant. I mean literally hundreds of clues. And i opened it up and my boyfriend sitting next meeting was like as the hottest thing i've ever seen. You are absolutely tinker with all weekend. And sh the ten by ten and now way does. Here's the thing about. I don't do the crossword. So i don't usually buy the paper on sundays because there's just a lot of paper and it's a lot to go through and it's a lot of arts at a lot of leisure and a lot of stuff a lot of real estate and i don't really have the room in my life for the sunday times more daily guy so you don't want to consume a hard copy of the sunday silence. No i really don't especially not the someday style. Sorry to styles interesting. I love the styles people. I just don't like the style section. Sorry what's what what's why let's let's start you know after say it's probably because it no matter what no matter how democratic they tried to make it it just excludes people. It's just like oh here's something you don't know about style and i don't know why but i find it like it's weird. I don't need. I don't need to be. I don't need my style to be remedied or informed by that particular thing. You know what i mean to me. That's like that's like shooting gold fish in a barrel. Someone telling you what stylish. Sorry i just. Don't i love arts criticism. And i love well fashioned criticism i guess but really. I don't know why i just think a whole section devoted to. It is like a little bit because some of my best friends are style style. Contributors in style editors so like i love you. I just don't like that section. That's all boom. I said it there. I said it and i know that's spoken but you obviously have been written about in this styles a million times but if you are sold in charlotte just like now the last the last nail of the call on the right about your told just in passing that there that you're mentioned in a piece. Are you more likely to avoid it. More likely to seek it out to see what they said. Well you know. Like i have to tell you the god's truth this is like a horrible admission was gonna make this right now. I haven't looked at any fashion journalism. Since like i would say like the middle nineteen nineties. I just don't. I can't stand it. Yeah it makes my skin. Crawl like like looked at vogue so if i get a credit in a magazine or somebody mentioned me usually. It's like a company that flags at or my person. This person that i work with flags thing to show it to me. And i read it and i go. How great night. Thank whoever it is or how horrible thank you for nothing right. But that's i'm sorry. That's just i guess because you know i do it and i take it so seriously or something or i don't do it anymore so i take it. I have a wound over it. Or i'm like a little vulnerable about the subject you know is that crazy. It's not great. Of course my mind goes right to that famous scene from unzipped when you are shown the wizard -actly go just done this line. That was similar to the one that you were working on at lucerne starling eskimo komo and the thing is you know i hadn't seen i was so happy in my bubble of justice creativity and so i protect myself in this way you know and and i feel like it's really important because it's also really stupid because as as an artist you want to see what else is out there just because you don't want to repeat or do the same thing where you know and that just i'm sorry my own. It's the only way that i preserve. It's the only way that i can preserve my creativity. It's the only way that i can preserve. It is not to look. I have people who write for the new yorker. They can't read the new yorker. I have friends that like. I don't know just i. I don't know that's just who. I am an actress who can't watch their work. Listen to this out of own voice.

"I'm Rachel Bell, and this is your last meal a show about famous people and the stories behind the foods. They love most today on the program fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi Isaac started selling his designs at High End New York City boutiques when he was just fifteen years old, he officially launched his brand in nineteen eighty-seven and quickly became one of the biggest names in American. Fashion. Isaac released a charming book last year called I am a memoir that I just absolutely gobbled up a handful of days and speaking of gobbling up Isaac loves food and cooking, but he will always choose something classic over something Trendy. She also just makes you know wonderful. Newfangled muffin ideas of because nothing is a buffet anymore by the way, it always has to be like some hybrid between a Muffin and scuffing and nothing. Nothing to say, let's a muffin idea. What I'm talking about you. Know what I'm talking about they don't make the plain old baked goods anymore. It's a quest Seaney, right? It's a totally. Question dies. Also. Your psychics name Cinta. Boom is base is in New York. City. But he also has a second home in Bridgehampton Long, island which is where he sources most of the produce for his last meal and while discussing last meal Isaac sent me on a mission to uncover a culinary mystery that no one has been able to solve for him. Now, I can't take too much credit because I consulted with. Three experts to solve this mystery I spoke with top ice cream scientists, Ben and Jerry's headquarters, and at Molly Moon's homemade ice cream in Seattle, and I even checked in with the kitchen manager at Nestle for good measure and I was handsomely rewarded for all of my efforts. We will talk about that much later in the show but right now, my conversation with the most precious man. Who makes you feel really special when you're talking to them definitely the only person that I've interviewed for the podcast who started the interview by asking me a question what did you eat for lunch to Rachel Bell? Oh God well, you know what's funny I didn't eat lunch but for breakfast I eight and such a Jew I had like chicken soup that I made from scratch but no Montreal's. Wow that sounds like an overachiever kind of breakfast. Well I didn't make it from scratch today. It was leftover I, what did you have for lunch? Well, I didn't eat breakfast. So I went to this like big kind of sandwich shop it was like. She was roasted roasted mushrooms, loads of cheese look. I haven't seen that much cheese on plate in a really long time. So delicious and I ate every bite of it was like a need. Yeah. Did you even the cheese that had melted onto the plate off I've loved the gets. You're sick. You're sick girl. That's that's my favorite part. There's like this local burger chain here called Dick's and I call it cheese paper like the cheese that sticks to the paper when you open it and I like to scrape it off my teeth like an animal where's your novel on? That's? That would resonate with so many millions of people. Thank you. But I loved the is called the preface or the forward to your book where you're like Oh i WanNa talk about the minutia. pleased. Do I know that's that's ball. Ladies and Gentlemen Isaac Mizrahi. Administered, by Keo Random Question I read this article I don't remember where it was now maybe the kitchen or something where the came over to your house and they look through your fridge and you had to comment on basically everything you had in your fridge. and which is like opening up your underwear drawer it's like very vulnerable. And you had to make a comment on the fact that you had worshipped or sauce in your fridge and you said it's like Granny's Panty is what does that mean? Yeah. Well, that's that's that's a phrase that comes to my friend Mark Morris he always says, oh, it has a little bit of granny panties in it, which means it's a little like it's a little off tasting like yeasty or fungus. Pants. The Mark Morris version of Amami. Possibly Granny panties the fifth taste. Exactly. Exactly. Beats our like whatever you mommy and granny panties. It's so gross I like it. Is. It grew up in Brooklyn, in a conservative Syrian Jewish family and community. He was a hyper creative kid who constructed puppets for puppet shows and sewed clothes for barbies. His mother loved fashion and his father worked in the garment. and gave Isaac, sewing machine for his tenth. Birthday. was bursting to make things and making things and performing and making puppets eventually making clothes and doing shows right it was my escape from rouser. A really unhappy childhood. I was an alien among my community and to some degree my family you know just a little bit to my family I. Mean they were they were lovely like I love my family, right? I. Also did female impersonations. I'm not sure if you've got that far into the book but I started doing those when I was like eight years old ten years old I started doing streisand and Liza Judy and there was a mixed reaction to that and there was a mixed reaction to the puppet shows you know they didn't exactly know what to make of me. You know it was like, what do we do with him? Right like I was so effeminate and Then like I had these tendencies toward the flamboyant Isaac attended Sheva of Flatbush. School but when he was in eighth grade, he had a very special teacher who recognized his talents saw that he was struggling in this conservative religious environment and she's the one that convinced his parents to let him audition for the high school a Performing Arts in Manhattan. This is the same school that the one thousand nine, hundred film fame was set in, and then I was accepted into the drama department. It was really just like a kind of turnaround in my life. I learned. A very, very important lesson early in my life, which was the lesson of optimism. Just when you think it's like the end of the world like something comes up and suddenly you're freed from this terrible constraint. Sorry about the siren. Sorry about all the noise on this side. How dare? During our interview exactly. And you grew up kosher as well. So when did you ship and jump into a big pile shrimp? You know it was it was at performing arts high school that first year was just like layers and layers of culture shock and layers of guilt really every.

And you're going to stand Dan here and then you're gonNA turn around and and you're GONNA ask the question of us but you're gonNA face that way you've got it all right so but face them. It's a lot to do. What's your what's your name and where are you from my new? Mr GotTa both Ricardo from UNDO US hunt for the Americans here. It's Hunduras aren't there to Honduras yours over. Ricardo isn't there zero British Honduras. Used to be notes. Believe were you go girl. Deputy in the form of ten thousand dollars. I'll have so Ricardo.

Well congrats on the book and route congrats on the EMMY DOT COM. So it's very humbling to be before you. It's very exciting. Because you have very accomplished careers.

Yeah that's an amazing thing. That is a really good question. Oh yeah you can go back and will will refer to later. We have your information. Oh yes that question is very good. It's very good question you you know. I will say the one thing that I miss. When I was a kid I used to walk and walk and walk streets because you know I don't sleep sleep that much and I used to just walk at night like walk and walk and walk during the day? It was really fantastic. Kind of therapy. Right Streetwalker I was a bit of a street Walker and I got all of my good ideas and inspiration from looking at crazy people and knowing crazy people on the street right and eventually now now like I have to say like. They don't want this to sound like anything but a lot of times when you walk on the street people stop you and they want your autograph. They want your picture or something and it's not as easy to walk on the the street and I don't that much anymore you know and so that was one sacrifice I literally because otherwise I can't think of like I can't think of one I can't think of one sacrifice namedrop here on Oprah asked me that I didn't. I didn't have an answer at the time when I thought about later. I thought you know what it is is. I have sacrificed just a lot of close friendships. Because I've always been ambitious and a lot of the time it takes to sit with people and just have relation but just friends. I don't do that so much because I work a lot. So that's the big sacrifice I have made and also like friendships. Change and people don't like that so much especially if you have any form of success or or failure people don't necessarily want to hang around so yes we're on the on the podcast you. Oh.

Don't leave the house without lipstick if you're my sister and and my sisters were really good looking. And they spent hours styling hours on the hair and and my sister norma disappeared fourteen and came back with bandages on her nose and Bruce bless her. Hello Yes yes and stylish family extremely extremely extremely mother mother and father. My father was in the children's wear business and he he made little coats and suits for boys. Oh that sounds perverted perverted doll and talk. But that's what he didn't he had beautiful suits and you know he was kind of large my dad and so I've always had this complex about being large like it was something.

How do you encourage like a ten year old boy? Who's doing like Liza Elisa? It's hard enough to do it now or something I think for parents yes in those days. It wasn't that easy and so I think what they do is they like look away way a lot and in that way I think it was support.

Trade war dims outlook for U.S. business operations in China

"A lot of american companies that make or buy products from china are starting to rethink doing that as a new round of tariffs takes effect this weekend. Import taxes are making king chinese goods more expensive in the united states but finding alternative suppliers. Isn't that cheap either. N._p._r.'s scott horsely has the story. Many american companies are facing rising costs because the tariffs ba- robert delorean doesn't have to worry the lawrence c._e._o. Of the x._l. Brands company which sells clothing the isaac mizrahi right and halston labels among others he began moving out of china some time ago not because of tariffs but in order to find faster more flexible suppliers who could jump on fashion trends and turnout clothes in just six weeks delores x._l. Now manufacturers in a variety of countries including indonesia india and sri lanka and is exploring production in central and south america. You never want to have all your eggs in one basket in terms of supply china was easy in retrospect. Probably we had ninety percent of your production. In china that wasn't good risk management planning the laura and has gone from making seventy percent of his clothes in china to less than twenty percent sent but it wasn't easy. He spent two years flying around the world trying to line up factories five deliveries to get it right everything that could go on clothes from the new factories didn't fit right but i or the fabric wasn't what he expected. Many companies are now going through a similar process s. of trial and error as they look for alternatives to chinese factories in hopes of avoiding the president's tariffs the truth is that the trade war is a little bit of a wakeup call for many companies jerry matias vice president with bain and company consultants based in singapore. He says rising labor costs in china. Were already causing some companies to look elsewhere for suppliers and the trump tariffs have accelerated that but uh other countries will need a lot of investment match the expert manufacturing base and the robot shipping shipping network that china's built up over the last two decades a survey by the american chamber of commerce in china which represents has business there says most companies that do relocate okay look to southeast asia the at phnom exports. The u._s. jumped thirty three percent in the first six months this year. Mexico is another popular popular destination. Roberto deraza works for company. They're called events that helps manufacturers set up shop in mexico also held three conference calls with potential clients in in a single day this week but for now he says most are keeping their options open. Not many of them are pulling the trigger. My feeling it's that many of them are gathering information nation and if the trail continues for a long time just making the decision of coming into mexico mexico offers the advantage of much shorter delivery livery times to the u._s. but it has risk of its own just three months ago president trump was threatening tariffs on goods made their trump has urged companies worried about tariffs to move production election back to the united states but only about six percent the american companies operating in china are considering that harry moser who runs the reassuring initiative estimates twenty five percent would find manufacturing the u._s. competitive if they took tariffs transportation and all other costs into account. Probably they made the right decision going to china when wages were so low probably should have reevaluated at five years ago but now that they feel they have to bring a lot of work out of china. Now is the perfect time to reevaluate the u._s. As an alternative but some companies are staying put louisiana-based crown crass makes baby blankets and other products in china ceo randall chestnut told investors this summer he looked at moving production to half a dozen different countries but ultimately decided it was cheaper to stay in china and pay the tariffs but we think we're going to have to bite the bullet according to the american chamber sixty percent of the u._s.

And then when I actually encountered real taffeta, it kinda changed my life a little bit. But by the way, I always I insisted that there were two pronunciations of that word.
