Australian PM is vaccinated as rollout begins
"Today is the day that vaccination start to roll out across australia but we got a little preview of that yesterday with the with the prime minister and world war two survivor and a couple of other people getting the vaccine yesterday. Yes they go to i. Those of the pfizer vaccine which also followed a day on saturday of anti xers demonstrating and being talked to list in one city by pete evans. Some people criticizing the prime minister. Full so-called jumping the queue to get the vaccine before anyone else does but maybe leading by example. I just don't think you can criticize our leaders for having the it's not as if whole parliament skating it. It's really just showing their confidence in the vaccine. I think it's really important. Thing down the track. You'll see the health minister leader of the opposition getting the astra vaccine or the chief medical officer. Getting the astra vaccine to show that the our leaders are. You do have trust in this. And do you do believe in science. And i mean it's like laser immune to getting the virus either. Pay dutton got covid early. Jia by tribe and you you want your leadership cupboard and there's tens of thousands of accents that are gonna roll at in just the next couple of weeks. So i suppose people sort of is on the horizon going cool vaccine zahia. That's a really big comfort in a time of pandemic. When do we start to see things going back to normal. That's the critical question. And it depends what you call going back to normal because in most parts of australia. Things are pretty normal. We've got very little if any covid. Nineteen virus around in australia and new south wales is going weeks so has so have other jurisdictions so available around so we're back to normal internally back to normal means opening the borders having international travellers and tourists coming to australia us being able to go overseas listening. You'll becoming part of the world again. I think that's what we mean by becoming not becoming normal and covered that on tonight's Seven thirty program by talking to a mortar spoke to chris. Murray who heads the institute for health metrics and evaluation and he's of the he runs one of the world's leading modeling groups and covered on the health report back in november. He predicted the dr the global downturn in cases of covid nineteen that. We're seeing now he. He predicted almost to the week and his was. That was going to be nothing to do with. Thanks to nation and everything to do with season. -ality that really. It would have itself out in terms of the winter surge in covid nineteen. Because it's so seasonal. So i decided to go back to him. Seen other vaccinations going out. What what what's your modeling moving forward and it was quite sobering. He says he's not as bullish. Nah as he was back in november the variables that he's taking into consideration people's behavior. Now remember we're talking about the northern hemisphere not stralia new zealand but of almost no virus. And we've got close borders visit. If people's behavior goes back to normal before you get down to very low levels of virus transmission then you. He believes that you could. Well see a third wave evolving at the end of the northern summer. Pretty much like you saw in in twenty twenty and what could make that. Which is the second variable that he's worried about our vaccine resistant. Very variants of the virus escaped the vaccine and that they could really muddle the muddy the water considerably. How does that fit with other data that seeing coming out saying that the vaccines are reducing transmission in places like i and that's a place where the at least the uk variant is very prevalent on the uk very sensitive to the vaccine it's african variant and other variants than meyer is including the brazilian variant. We're not much is known. And you'll remember that. We spoke some days ago. About the brazilian city minnows. Seventy six percent of people had been infected with the virus. There were only five hundred admissions to hospital in the beginning of december beginning of january first nineteen days of january. Three thousand five hundred hospitalizations in so vaccine trials a very high percentage of people where had had covid nineteen when they were into the trial and in the placebo group they got reinfected with the south african variant so these vaccine escape variants are really worrying in terms of reinfection. Saw the vaccine does is turns covered one thousand nine hundred common core. Which is why. I'm gonna take the astra and we're five. We'll take whatever is given to me. Because i don't want to die of covid. Nineteen but if what we are looking for an opening of the borders and international normalization at least in australia. According to chris murray. We've made the wrong bet with the astro vaccine. He says you really do need to be immunizing with pfizer or madeira. Or perhaps even novak so that still to be proved in the real world. We're much higher. Degrees of efficacy and reduction in transmission and remember the other issue reduction in transmission is that these new variants emerge in countries. Where there's a lot of spread where the virus is multiplying and replicating all the time. And that's where these new variants are being thrown off. They won't be thrown off in austria. Where there's no virus around they'll be thrown off in low income countries like sight words middle income countries like south africa. They'll be thrown off in the united states in britain and other places if the virus keeps on circulating. So what we've got to do is get to very high levels of immunization very very quickly with highly effective vaccines and hope that that minimizes these of virus. Which is resistant to the vaccines. And then what we gotta do. And it's got to be done right now actually getting vaccines op through visor. Moderna novak's which are designed to cope with the resistant variants. That are around. Perhaps the brazilian one certainly the south african one and within a few months star boosting with them. This is really demoralizing. When with sort of on the cusp of vaccine. Roll out of here in australia woman. And if i'm just an average person sitting at home listening to corona 'cause what should i take away from these. Iud urging people from getting vaccine that they often no. Because i think it's really important that we all get covered so that shoots so first of all we're going to have a layer of protection. The international evidence is increasingly by the pfizer vaccine prevents transmission. So that means with hotel. Workers bar workers being immunized and hopefully their families to and that's a really important part of the story. We are creating a ring of confidence around the hotel borders. We've also got to institute with the pfizer vaccine. Not the astros vaccine ring vaccination around outbreaks so that we are controlling this any outbreaks there and everybody else immunized with the astra vaccine so that we are turns it into the common colds. We create a very safe situation. The problem is wayne. Do we open up to international travel and windy relax on hotel quarantine and with a country. That's largely covered with the extra astro vaccine. Which is not very effective somewhere doggy. Effective at all against the south african variant certainly in terms of transmission. Then it becomes a very nerve wracking decision to make. So that's why we've got to be planning in twenty twenty one for a booster. Does of vaccine resistant covid nineteen. That's actually a question that we had from john who's in australia who leaves in the us. And he's basically asking now. The australian vaccination program is rolling out. Do we expect. When do we expect the quarantine might be lifted. And what kind of factors go into that decision making so you could be quite cool about it if you think that we are all. We've turned effectively. Destroyed population susceptibility to covid nineteen into the common cold. And it does look as though the it's pretty effective at doing that with you're talking about african variant or indeed other variants. So we're pretty protected so you could say well maybe sooner rather than later but you know. It's just a very nerve wracking theme because we variants from all over the world and we are not donating vaccine to low-income countries. At the rate which will get van covered quickly enough and they will be throwing off variants and those variance will come to look at hiv hiv started around contrast saw in zaire and then you tens of millions of people have been infected with. Its an died. It doesn't matter where these variants arise from. They will spread to other parts of the world. So we've got to get the globe immunized as quickly as possible otherwise. It's very hard to relax just when you thought you had this thing pinned down at escapes again. Norman so so becomes really does become a bit like flu where the first vaccination does protect us to very significant extinct in terms of dying and serious disease. That's why i'm lining up. For whatever vaccine i get and i would urge other people to do the same. But it means that the government has got to not be complacent about this any shape or form and has to star ordering what's called multi vaillant vaccines are trying to ranging them now so that by spring summer of this year. We're getting boosting booster shots with multi valent vaccines that will covers against the current range of resistant. Variants around the world and that swing will open up borders.
Was the iPhone 12 a smash success? Here's when we find out
"This is a big earnings reports. Big one this is the one where we get the numbers for the iphone launch. So what are you expecting. We're expecting either a blow out or a surprise not blow out. This is one of those either it it really knocks the socks off for a dozen and part of it is because of the iphone. Twelve right this is a device that has been in terms of the financial world years in the making a smartphone sales in general have slowed down or gone down. Apple is kind of plateaued in terms of it and really this device is supposed to be what draws everyone back. I mean there were surveys out there. That showed something like half of customers. Who are iphone users or potential iphone users. Were gonna buy the iphone twelve. That is a massive number of people and so if that comes to be true it's going to be one of those really big moments for apple. Where they they move into another whatever. The next level is for that company it's already defying all gravity but they go even further right. The idea here is that the last time we had this so called super cycle was back with the iphone. Ten right where it was a new design there was a big Sort of big That resigned drove la demand because people held on their foes. Long enough is three or four years. This was sort of the next time. People were due for an upgrade right. Yeah you would think the iphone ten but in fact you know. Surprisingly the iphone ten was even a smaller cycle than what these people expect which is more like the iphone six If you remember that that was when it went from being the boxy design of the iphone five two more rounded corners which is what they kept until the iphone ten and also the first time they had a larger phone right that the six plus and that drove a ton of demand especially from asia where larger phones at the time were much more popular now. They're popular pretty much everywhere so you have to think like that. Moment for apple was enormous. And this is expected to be like that and it's hard to feel like in the middle of an economic catastrophe that that could happen. But i guess anything's possible. Yeah we've definitely seen from other checkup as that. The pandemic hasn't really had a real impact on their financial results. We'll see that book because that's it's tangible thing. it's funny. You mentioned that like the last. Big upgrade cycle was when the design went from box to curve in it with the iphone twelve. We went from curved back to boxy. it's like innovation. Yeah i mean it's it's like the it's it's like fashion right. What's old is new again. And it's kind of funny. I personally am more of a fan of the boxy design. Because i can hold it easier so i was all in on that. I did not like the curved ones. I always felt like they were going to slip out of my hands and i always had to have a case so i think that at the very minimum. The other thing that you have to keep in mind is that apple is pushing so hard the idea of the cameras and they've always been a thing but you now see the amount of time that they spend talking about the cameras in their presentations. You've got those shot on iphone commercials for the billboards. Although how many of us even go outside and see them anymore but those types of things really pushed the idea of unita upgrade this phone regularly. Because you're going to get the best camera you can in your pocket and even though we're all stuck inside apparently it seems like people still want really nice cameras. Well i know my wife takes analysts photos of our kids so that camera quality was the big selling point for her. The upgrade the other big feature obviously was five g. They talked a lot about five g. But do you think it had any impact on sales just given the fact that you have to be out and about to take verify. Gene and a lot of us aren't really out about that often. Well you have to be in a place where five g works. I have still yet to have five g work on my phone as i'm driving around in dc. And maybe it's because i'm the wrong carrier. You have more of a verizon town but still it's just it's crazy to me that this is a feature that's the headline feature and i have not actually had a turn on at all. I think that really fight. Jia anything is a hype thing it's able to draw people in. It's kind of like three d. tv's way back it's like oh we'll just slap another thing on the box but people rarely used it and i think five g eventually obviously is going to be the future but i have a feeling that if it did draw people in it was because of the hype of what it is not the actual functionality of it yet.

Olivia Jade addresses college admissions scandal that landed parents in prison
"And this whole college admission scandal and what she had to say. Yes, Bob. This is quite the headline here. I did not expect for Olivia Jade, the daughter of Massimo JIA, newly and actress Lori Laughlin to break her silence on the entire college admissions scandal. This is really the first time that we have heard from any member of that family since the scandal unfolded. Because you know they couldn't really talk about it because of legalities and and things like that. But now she has taken to Jada Pinkett Smith Red Table talk, which is her Facebook watch theories, and she opened up about the entire experience and recognizing her privilege and what she has learned from it. Of course, her parents both pled guilty in May 21 count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and they are Both currently serving their prison sentences on Her recognizing her privilege. She still doesn't understand it. But the whole point of her going on this red table talk was just to apologize, Acknowledge that she knows what she and her family did was wrong, and she's asking for a second chance. Now, here's a little bit of what she said on that show with her mom. Uh, Jada Pinkett Smith host the show with her mom and her daughter, Willow and the Libya Jade. Felt it was time to speak and definitely ready to address some things. There is no justifying or excusing what happened because what happened was wrong. But I think what's so important to me is like toe learn from the mistake not to now be shamed and punished and never given a second chance. Like I'm not trying to victimize myself. I don't want pity. I don't deserve pity. I never got to say I'm really sorry that this happened. At least it wasn't one of those non apology. Apologies where somebody says if I offended anyone, I mean, it sounded like she really did take responsibility. And she understands the severity of what they did especially, you know, not now that her parents are, you know, serving prison sentence. I feel like it's really Able to sink in for her. And so she she took the initiative to publicly apologize. Okay, Here

A Look At Apple's Hi, Speed Event
"Few huge surprises at apple's high speed event though. There were some unexpected bits. Did. Anybody. See The verizon thing coming? Did we have any idea what? MAG SAFE WAS GONNA turn out to be. There we'll get to those. Most of today's presentation is drawn from a couple of viewings of the Apple Park presentation. We'll also pull from the usual suspects doing their usual bang-up jobs. Tuesday's high-speed event presentation started with Apple CEO Tim Cook welcoming viewers back to Apple Park than throwing the presentation almost immediately to others to give the INS and outs of home pod. Many. Bob Board richer's apple VP worldwide product marketing listed the company's desires for home pod. Wanting. The device to have amazing sound to act as an intelligent assistant to serve as a smart home hub all while protecting the privacy and security of the user. This, they say they do in a smaller spherical unit that costs less than one third of the original home pods original asking price. On the amazing sound side company bragged on the devices ro properties as well as how well it plays with others. Others being other apple devices. Users can apparently sink home pod many's either a stereo pairs or to play the same audio throughout the home. The. Inclusion of apples you one processor makes handoff easier to handle according to the company. For what it'll play. Well, there's the usual stuff apple music, apple podcasts, iheartradio radio DOT COM tuned in with Pandora and Amazon music on the way in the coming months. As for the smart part Home Pod, many will handle or interact with messages. Calendar phone calls maps music because. The. Weather reminders and find my feature. There was also an interesting demo where users ask for personal updates and got them. personalized. So he you know multiple voice recognition is key. Now. One new feature mentioned and de Mode was intercom. This is basically what it sounds like. You tell home pod to deliver a message to everybody and the various apple devices in the house including other home pods, iphones, apple watches air pods, and even carplay units play or display the message. I have heard entercom will work with the original home pods as well though not seeing that confirmed. Addressing. It's smart home hub nece home pod many integrates with apple's home APP that lets control home connected accessories said scenes and stuff like that. Covering User Privacy Apple, says no word spoken to Home Pod, leave your home until you touch home pod many or say he. S I are. So, yes, it is always listening but what it here's goes nowhere until you give it the command. Request. A home pot or not associated with apple ID. You choose whether recordings are saved by apple personal requests only work when the associated iphone is home with you. And communications with smart home accessories used strong encryption according to the company. Now I, said earlier that the unit is spiritual. If you've seen a home pod, there is no mistaking what this thing is. Same sort of light up display on the top same mesh wrapping it's roundedness and the same white and space grey options as the original home pod. Coming soon to flat surface near you. Orders for home pod many began on the sixth of November unit, start, shipping the week of the sixteenth of November. Not Price, to beat an echo but not a device that will break the bank. Home Pod many will sell. For, Ninety, nine bucks. Okay. I pretend to hear you say but I'm worried about breaking my home pause many. Not sure why but better to be safe in your case. To that end apple care plus we'll be available for home pod. Many. A piece from macrumors says, that will run buyers fifteen bucks. When Tim Cook was back on camera, he took a moment to Brag on iphones past noting the iphone eleven has been the number one smartphone in the world since its launch and that I phone has led the industry in customer satisfaction every year since it's Get ready to hate all of them as the iphone twelve line makes the scene bringing with it five G. Connectivity. Which one? All of them. Had Been Rumored Apple announced four iphone phone twelve models and has had also been rumored. Each can support five G.. Cook says, five G. Brings A new level of performance for downloads UPLOADS, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity, and more. The CEO says five Jia superfast, which he actually pitched as a security feature speeds are so good. He says you'll be less tempted to sign on the public WIFI limiting exposure to the dangers that lurk there. Every decade brings new technology that provides a step change in what we can do with iphone said Cook. Today. A new era begins for iphone. Today we're bringing by G. to phone. Then began the verizon commercial. Hans Fest Berg Chairman and CEO. Verizon took to the stage talk about big reds five G. offering. Verizon's by ultra wideband with large quantities of millimeter wave access will be live and sixty cities across the US by the end of this year. In ideal conditions, Best Burg says the carriers seen four gigabits down and two hundred megabits up. The four gigabits is kind of funny own Antonio Guy says an ideal conditions. Well it doesn't sound like you're getting four GIGA beds but we'll get, him. The other thing best Burger announced was flipping the switch on Verizon's extensive five gene nationwide network. That apparently went live yesterday. Boy would I like to know the terms of the deal worked out between, that bill and Verizon? Emphasis on particular carrier. I did not see coming. Now I said iphone twelve comes in four models here the rumor mill rang true. The phones are iphone twelve iphone twelve many iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro, Max. Starting with iphone twelve, remember the squared off edges of iphone Four. The new design returns us to that. Squared edges that meet flush with the devices front and back glass the front classes something special though. Working with corning delay, this display is protected by what apple. Calls Ceramic. Shield. It is said by the company to be tougher than any other smartphone class with four times better dropped performance than iphone eleven. The display it's protecting is apple custom Ole ed providing truer blacks, better contrast and two times the pixels iphone eleven or four, hundred, sixty pixels per inch. While that displays the same six point one inches iphone eleven, apple shrank the surrounding enough to make iphone. Eleven percent than her fifteen percent smaller and sixteen percent lighter than iphone. Eleven Choice of colors is not huge but they are pretty. With options and black. White Product Red Green. And blue that. Does things for me. I shouldn't talk about in mixed company. The candy coating is nice. Let's talk about. It's Chewy. Chocolate center starting with the phones five Genus Apple says, iphone twelve has the most five G. bands of any smartphone for better performance in more places. Additionally the company's silicon, the software approach. Let's apple make the best use of available five G. including choosing to not use five. G.. It sounds like iphone defaults to lt e tapping into five G. when it's both necessary and available. That is great for power consumption according to the company. Apples tested the new phones on over one hundred carriers and over thirty regions. In ideal conditions iphone twelve gets up to three point five gigabits on. which is what makes the Brian Bragging about four gigabytes down kind of funny yesterday. It does support millimeter wave those so. got that going for it. As, for the phones on workings iphone twelve powered by apple's a fourteen bionic, the first phone powered by the five nanometer processor technology packing eleven point eight billion transistors roughly forty percent more than eight thirteen. A six core CPU that's up to fifty percent faster than last year's phone and a four core GPU graphics that are up to fifty percent faster than last year's model. Machine learning also gets a boost iphone, twelve packs of sixteen coordinator and Gen that's up to eighty percent faster than iphone eleven capable of eleven, trillion operations per second. Company bragged on Games claiming console quality for the phone. To Demonstrate and executive from riot games showed off League of legends wild rift a mobile, only game due out later this year. Well phone twelve is not the phone photographers would choose. There's plenty of improvement and it's cameras. Apple says the phone has a twelve megapixel ultra wide camera and twelve megapixel wide camera. It said the sport, the fastest aperture yet it also features a seven element lens that apple says offers twenty-seven percent improvement in low light performance. Mag Save is an internal thing. Rather than a name for a connector is in days of old MAG. Safe today is a collection of magnets and charging elements that help line up the phone for proper charging. When it's not charging those magnets go to work holding on cases and wallets and third party stuff. Apple expects a thriving ecosystem of third party doodads take advantage of the newly introduced MAG. Safe. Ness. Mag Safety. Safe thing. Anyway. It's a thing built into iphone twelve. Every model in the line. Now's probably phone twelve many. Except for the size, you can take everything I've said so far about iphone twelve and play it back. iphone twelve many has the same specs as iphone twelve though in a slightly smaller size. The company says the mini is smaller and lighter than four point seven inch models like iphone eight but with a bigger five point four inch display. Apple says, this one is the smallest thinnest and lightest five G. phone. In the world. Talking about last night with Frederik, Van Johnson, and a few other folks on Chuck joiners Mac. Voices. We came to the conclusion that the pro phones for two groups, people who wanna spend as much money as they can afford. Or people who really care about the camera. There's nothing wrong with the camera functionality and the iphone twelve or iphone twelve many. Unless you count they're not being as high end as the camera on the high end. No I'm not a high end photo guy. So there was a lot set around iphone twelve pro, an iphone twelve pro Max that escapes me. The camera on iphone twelve pro boxes said by apple to have a sixty five millimeter focal length from fifty two millimeter focal length and last year's counterpart. It's got five times optical zoom range and the set to support an eighty seven percent improvement in low light versus last year's top of the pro line. I do know enough to be impressed by one thing. The pro line can shoot an apple pro raw. or it will be able to with a software update. Later, this year photographers will also be able to edit those images. Directly, in the photos APP. The pros can also handle. HD are video recording catching seven hundred million colors. Sixty Times, the number they could capture before. Apple, said they also sport the first smartphone camera that'll record in dolby vision hd are. And just like the apple pro raw functionality users will be able to edit the dobie vision HDR video in the photos APP. Finally the light are rumors were finely true the twelve pro and twelve pro Mac speech or a world facing light detection and ranging scanner. That let folks scan and modeled their surroundings. Apples Demos showed that put to use for placing objects in an augmented reality environment performing improved autofocus and low light and improving camera that perception in low light for night moat. Working our way out of these phones, Greg, Joswiak, apple's newly minted senior. VP Worldwide Marketing talked about a few of the pro lines features. It's got mad safe. It's got ceramic shield. It's got a Super Ratna FDR display. As for sizes iphone twelve pro gets bumped from five point eight inch display display size of six point one inches the pro Max meanwhile goes six point five inch display to a display size of six point seven. All of it is bound by the same squared off edges as iphone twelve, the with a couple of distinctions. I. The outer band is stainless steel on the pro line and second the colors are a bit more refined. Coming in silver graphite a gold that looks seriously golden. And the Pacific. Blue that doesn't do as much for me as the blue on the IPHONE twelve. Not that I'd turn it down. If cost is your primary concern. Here is what you're looking at across the whole line of iphones. iphone se. Start Three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars iphone ten are starts at four ninety, nine iphone eleven starts at five, ninety, nine iphone many starts at hundred ninety, nine dollars iphone twelve starts at seven ninety, nine, iphone twelve pro starts at nine, ninety nine. An iphone Pro Max starts at one, thousand, ninety, nine dollars. For the new phones though those prices are only Kinda SORTA true. Peace, from the Mac Observer says iphone twelve many an iphone twelve do start at six, ninety, nine and seven, ninety nine if you buy them as a t and T or verizon phones if you buy one is either a sprint or t mobile phone or as an unlocked phone. The starting prices are seven, twenty, nine, and eight, twenty nine. With no indication as to why. While it's great that ceramic shield means less of a chance of broken display. The chance is still there. If that bugs, you apple care pluses there for all of them. macrumors says, two years of coverage will run one, hundred, forty, nine dollars for iphone and twelve mini. Adding loss or theft protection will up that price to to nineteen buyers can get ongoing coverage for seven, ninety, nine per month or eleven dollars and forty nine cents with loss and theft added. As for the higher end phones, the pizzas, two years of Apple Care Plus will cost one, nine, thousand, nine or nine dollars ninety nine cents per month. Theft. And loss coverage bumps that price to two, hundred, sixty, nine dollars or thirteen dollars and forty nine cents per month. Ongoing. As for availability, apple is starting in the middle. And working out. Would owners can order iphone twelve and iphone twelve pro this Friday the sixteenth. October. They'll be delivered the following Friday the twenty third. If you're targeting either end of the range. iphone twelve, many an iphone twelve pro Max will go up for order on the sixth of November. Delivery should hit the following Friday the thirteenth of November. Barring incident which I have to say because. Friday

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?
"Kirk. So I I swear. I promise we're not here to debate. Mj versus Lebron. At least not until the end of the interview believe me I have my stance. It is locked and loaded. We'll get to that. I don't want to alienate half the audience before we begin so over the last few weeks. Those of us who have watched the last dance have borne witness to the greatness. That is Michael. Jordan and that greatness does inform the Lebron debate insofar as it has reminded us of how dominant Jordan was but of course he was playing a different era. Basketball was very different from how it is today which can make it hard to compare those two players or to evaluate how Jordan would fare in today's NBA. So let's start here and established that point of comparison. What was the league like Jordan came into it? Well Jordan came into the in nineteen eighty four and it was a very very different place. The best players in the League at that time or Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson Larry Bird bird again. Larry saying the crowd here. This is what came to see. Kareem abdul-jabbar was still really good Long story short meaning the the NBA was run by big men just as it had been since its entire district and eight of the ten highest play players by the time Jordan even retired centers Jordan was drafted in Nineteen eighty-four just to give you an idea dominant. How valuable centers were sixteen of the twenty previous? Mvp Award winners heading into the one thousand nine hundred four eighty five season worst centers so Jordan entered an MBA. That's fair to characterize as a centers -ly And obviously it's very very different than what we're describing here in twenty twenty. So how big of a deal was it? That the best player in the League Michael Jordan was a shooting dude. You can't overstate. How big of a deal. It was really weird. I mean magic had showed us that point guards could be great. Bird showed us the power forwards and shooting. Forwards could be great no. Mvp had ever come from the shooting. Guard position nobody had really ever dominated the leak or won championships from that position or in that way and again one of the main things the makes Michael Jordan's such a special character in NBA. History is that he deformed the various static of MBA greatness. disrupted to use the term from from Silicon Valley. What it meant and what it looked like to be. Nba superstar love deformed as a verb because it sort of implies that he bent the League to his own. Will he did that man? I mean he came in there and it was violent and it was beautiful and it was for the betterment of the future of the sport a couple of weeks ago. You're at a piece about why. Michael Jordan was such a transcendent score. Can you explain what it was that? Made that dominant so unusual. Yeah well it starts with the fact that he's a he's a guard and again to contextualize it against what was going on in the eighties. Nineties is is shooting guards in wings didn't dominate the NBA. We had the occasional superstar like Julius Irving. So I'm not GonNa say that he was the first star wing but he was a jump shooter. Long Story Short. He was a jump shooting guard. Who could attack the Rim and boy could he attack the rim? So the early part of Jordan's careers. Obviously marked by these highlight jump. Man Silhouettes the dump contest leap from the free throw line and Chicago. Stadium can picture that in our head along Dominique to Michael Jordan but by the end Meena Jordan would beat teams with just incredible mid range shooting And if a majority of buckets in the last dance season in that second repeat came off of the mid range jump shots that either came from post plays Dribble pull-ups quick stops just an endless array of mid range jumpers. Mj On the way away. Jumper and one scout told me a really stuck out is like I've been watching the last dance for eight hours now. I haven't seen the same move twice. It's not like he had to go to move over and over again. All those phase pretty close but man he he did it all but he did it in this area that we don't use very much anymore. Aka Amid Ridge and he's also very difficult shots right thinking about it this way. If you're going up against the Bulls in his nineteen ninety two or nineteen ninety-seven and year in opposing coach. Year number one objective is pretty clear If you can stop or slowdown Michael Jordan. You have a chance. If can't you don't So almost every night the Jordan played he would get the other teams best defender. And that person would WANNA play their best game of the year because everybody in their Rena was watching it and so he did. This eighty two games a year to put up the best sort of scoring numbers in the League against the best defensive performers in the league so you made a heat map for Jordan and then in the same story you made one for harden and you put them next to each other and trying to comparison it almost looks like urban and rural America right or like to to heat maps. That are just wildly different. Almost like people playing different sports one hundred percent in hardened deserves all the credit in the world for becoming the best score of this era but this era is dominated by sort of this moneyball dogma efficiency efficiency efficiency and when you look at James Harden shot signature. You see a guy who shoots near the hoop. He's great Basket attacking guard like Jordan But then away from the painting of the student only shoots threes. He avoids the Mid Range just like he avoids a shaving cream. And and then when you look at say Jordan you see almost the exact opposite remember that old image of Pan Jia and how the continent sort of fit together these two shots hearts kind of look like South America and Africa. Where Jordan is one shape all mid range and then a hardest jump shot activity is sort of surrounding that all three point airs. Jordan didn't shoot a lot of threes.
"jia" Discussed on Gee Thanks, Just Bought It
"You got the rugs for your house where you usually do your home decor shopping. So this is this is going to make me sound like a real asshole. But my so. My boyfriend is an architect And he gets like an insane discount. Well that's why you're daytime so he so it was like so basically everything in this house. It's everything in. This house is a handy down like we like one of our one of our really good friends with moving in with her boyfriend and so she just gave us her entire apartment. Basically like aunt godparents were moving from Long Island's of Florida and they just gave us whatever they didn't. You know like cleaning turn the week. We got Super Super Lucky and just picked up like everything in our house is from friends or from fiberglass but we have three really fancy rugs from ABC carpet. And it's so nice and it's like I definitely would never been able to afford it. But Andrew gets this wild discounts awesome. And I've never felt more like just like a fancy as vic that. Yeah you know. It's funny like my. My parents are really practical. We have you know we don't like I think they've changed their furniture like once in thirty years that they've lived or the thirty three years that they've lived in our house. They're not like they redid their kitchen. Like twenty five years after moving. It like they're very much like the you know. We bought a couch and we can sit on the couch and the couches comfortable. We're not really thinking but my mom always. We have the same rug in our living room that we've had since the late eighties and it's it's a timeless sort of just Persian rug. That was probably very very expensive and it. It seems very unlike my parents to kind of buy something that expensive but the way that my parents talk about it is like we plan by thirty. And it's like the same thing as the bad bras and the bad bomb. Yeah it's like a your floor floor Bra. It's like yeah at some point. You can do the math and be like well. I've bought seven hundred and fifty dollar rugs in the last ten years because they keep pilling or they they don't look good right right or you can just spend fifteen hundred dollars on like really nice rug and then be done with it Yeah yeah and it feels so right. It's funny like entering this. Like it is like right around this age right. We're we're all sort of transitioning between like my dresser and this night right at the college when I got it from like you know. Someone's roommate five dollars off. Yeah exactly like getting married also was a really good way to upgrade some of our furniture situation but la has proven to be an incredible place to thrift at. Because they don't see they either have so much. There's so much material. There's so much stuff that they don't they to just move stuff out so it's priced differently but like the chair that I was telling you that we bought that I sold was like twenty dollars whereas I know if I walked into like a housing works in Chelsea and New York. They'd be like that's I'm like vintage and it's two hundred and twenty. This is someone's old chair like we're not. I'm not paying more than twenty dollars for this but it is incredible to see. There's like some really good stuff if you look hard enough and and then you just have to get into the of maintaining it but like a rug is your lifeline. And unfortunately there's numerous all left in the world but I have this one canham selling it for two hundred dollars. Yeah anyone wants to know. It's it's really funny. I'm looking at now on the. Abc Home and carpet site. Yeah these are so expensive. I mean they're like literally fifteen thousand dollar on here. They're crazy but it is sort of like I get it there. Rich people in the world who think like you know of course a fifteen thousand dollar rug that make sense to me. But that's not who I am but like I really think there is there is. This is definitely the age where you learn. There is a difference between something that cost one hundred dollars and something that costs one thousand dollars so if we got the cheapest rugs and then we've got the you know what it's reasonable it's also your home and you and you're planning on like who wants to change every two years you're going to be there for a while you're going to have like once you have your kid. You're probably going to be. There are a lot more because yeah it's there's more room and get an ice rug and like anyone else out there listening in their single. Just start dating architect. They're good deal to be the furniture desks. That should be in tender. Like you should have to live like all of the perks that whatever your job affords you thank you so much for for coming on.

Now have twelve to fifteen female friends. That only wear this bra the same way that I do. What is and like we'll like we'll like slash each other at a restaurant and each other pictures. It's so so I think there comes a time in every in every woman's life where you realize you've been wearing like Shitty fucking Brian your actual size and you know the. The Band is too big and the straps are Super Dingy. You're not Washington enough for your washing it off. It's like it's shaped Craig starting to pill like and you just you just look you look at yourself one day and you're like this is a nightmare and I think for me. It took a long time like I remember when I this is so again. Because I don't really pay attention to what I have rethink about upgrade. I get very often so I can go a really long time. You know like truly in the dirtbag life like when I when I went to Peace Corps. I remember I had this. My best girlfriend was the Super Hot Frenchwoman and she and I like we were talking about what we packed and she was like well. How many bras did you pack and I was like. I don't know to Sports Bras. Two regular ones and she was like. Jia Jia. Yeah I packed fourteen bras. You Know Oh my God like like you know and I realized But then you know I still. I don't even remember. I think I just bought my bras target. You know her. Guess what my guess. What my size was but then. I think this I think around twenty sixteen I was. I REMEMBER. I was working. It was right before I stopped working at Jazz Bell and our office was in Union Square. There was as you're now like right on the between no. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's like near the dig end right. Yeah Yeah exactly and I got up that morning and I put on my dingy Bra and I like a dingy sweater from favorite. Toni wine and I looked at myself in the mirror. I was like man my books look like Shit and and I. I really like my boobs like I. They're they're really good like they're very. I just I like that and they looked terrible and I was. Why did they look great boots? And so I just walked into the you know and then it was like maybe i. I guess I've been reading like the Osmosis of women's media articles that were like you're wearing the wrong bra size will. Yeah like Oh. I'm probably wearing their on site so went to this journal and I was like I need a new bra help and they fit me and you know my size was completely different from what I thought it was and they like brought me this brought to try on and it's the NATORI feathers Bra. It's it's really expensive. It's like sixty eight dollars I think Which is really high. I mean very very high. It depends on the. What if you wearing right? If it's the thing that you wear all the time you issued so man yeah it's exactly and if and if you like so honestly like I just spend a year alternating between two of them and it's actually a great and cost per us. It's very low and I truly can't tell you like this brought it's like I like friends of mine will text me after I will text me. It'll be like oh I just got it. I feel like I've finally like vibes. Finally understand like how they're supposed to live yet like it's like the reason why it's so good. Is that like it? The band is perfect. It's sort of. It's sort of that really elusive. It's like that feeling if you've ever had sort of like. Is it the plunge Bra? I'm just looking at the feathers plunged and the band is so good that even if you didn't have the straps on something about the structure of the Bra it's like it would stay up and support you all by itself that elusive and you know. There's never and what it is. It's like it's a regular a regular. Bra. That is that is overlaid with a sort of deep the lace netting yet so it's delicate looking. It's like sexy but it's not like not like it's efficient like it's efficient and a super super efficient but yeah but it looks. It doesn't look bad if you're wearing something and it shows a little bit right and the the little bit of like beliefs v. Makes it look a little deliberate and And and so basically like no matter what this what. I've found with so many friends with very different body types and breast sizes shapes. It's like somehow this bre. There's some way to adjust the band and the and the straps so that it really your boobs are just sitting exactly where they should and you know like there's you don't get marks on your on your back or your shoulders your boob from like the under wire or whatever. Yeah Yeah and and and you never get gaping and my boobs like they like. That was the first like my boobs. Change a lot you know. Yeah like do they would just get bigger on my period or whatever like go up and down even a cup size and the broadest always fit. Yup It's just like I really can't say like if anyone is in the well after this is over when we're wearing wearing bras again right. Well it's actually I just went to bear necessities dot com and the notorious feathers. Plunge Bras actually fifty one and it usually is sixty eight so I'm adding one of my carpet now because yeah so on my thirty second birthday. Which was the day before Thanksgiving this past year The nordstrom on fifty seventh opened and it was like a big to do and my friend lives up on central park south and so we were like We wanted to go see the balloons. You know the night before Thanksgiving or whatever but it was so crowded and it was raining and it was just like kind of gross And it wasn't even that like Nice Fall Rain it was like still hot out because global warming and yeah so it was like this cupid grow and we're like okay well instead of doing that. We're just going to Nordstrom and I was like oh I wanted to get a new Bra. And of course like Nordstrom is one of those places where you know a woman wearing like a measuring tape around her neck like kind of like marches right up to you and I was just like you know what it's my birthday like. I deserve so I was like. Yeah I WANNA I wanNA finally know what my bra sizes. And she's she's so totally different than what you. Yeah I thought I was. Yeah I thought it was thirty eight C. And she was like you're a thirty six double D and I was like. Oh yes exactly. I think I had always thought I was thirty. Four C but then in. This BRA was a thirty D. Yup and it was like what yeah making sense but then you realize what you generally think of as my boobs. Don't look like a redoubt. They but they they didn't look like a d before but it's just yeah like I think like we all look at the cup size and we just like gas based on what we think. That Cup size looks great. I mean life if you told me my mind. Like interpretation of a double D is like hooters. Jenny singled out nine hundred ninety six again. Massive Timid Electric Right. Yeah that's not my body because I'm not a size like if you're a size zero with like wd breasts like yeah. They look bigger. But I'm not a size zero so boobs. But they're not like they don't like they're not they're not. It's not super noticeable. Yeah but she looked it. She was very nice. Her name was bow. And if you live in New York and you WanNa go get your boobs feted I like please go to Bo- we literally exchange numbers. My friend and I like Thanksgiving. She's like my best friend and she put she put an Lebron's think it. I think I did get one notorious. I got one chantal Bra. I spent way too much money but it was no. It's our because because you wear them every day when they oh 'cause I also like my boobs and so I have no I don't care I have no shame so she was like what. Can I just see how your Bra like fits and like my under boob? Was EVERYTIME ARMS. It was these signs I wasn't wearing but I feel like Society kind of tries to tell you. It's your weird body like it's like not the bras fault. It's like your rain boobs. Then she put on the actual thirty six double D and it was like they were so perky and there was no gap and and the band wasn't like riding up to my neck and it. Yeah Yeah y'all ever feel it but you should feel really secure. Should never have that weird under boob riding up like everything like it feels like truly after this Bra I was like oh I have never known. I have never known truce day and I was sort of like I mean I genuinely so one of the first things that happened when I was pregnant. Was that like my boobs. Got Crazy like they went they. They got so so beg. You already know your boobs like changing and you're like maybe I'm pregnant. Well my boobs had gotten big in December and I texted a picture of them some of my friends and they're like you might be pregnant dog and I was like. Nah but I was and and then like right after I found out. I think it's I found out it's five weeks and it's seven weeks. I had to go buy a new Bra and I just went back to because I just truly like it was a nightmare and I and I walked into journal and just bought this exact brought to us up. It's edit like and I genuinely think that I will probably be wearing only this broth for the rest of my life like that's how attached I am with. It is so nice. That's a good one. Which one did you get I didn't get this one. I'm looking right now. I have one other one and I really like it there. Yeah they're good. My favorite thing is to wear a black BRA under a white t shirt because I. It's like as edgy as I'm going to get and I think the one that I got him looking through the thing. I definitely got like plain t shirt BRA. I have the plush. I got the plush convertible t shirt BRA. I think I have that one it does. Pretty seamless taback seamless. Also everything is seamless. When you're wearing the correct size because yeah exactly it's just on your right right like you never see the gross lie anything and like it's like I don't need padding or push up or anything and I feel.
Ancient Artifacts on the Beaches of Northern Europe
"Now speak with Andrew Curry a freelance journalist based in Berlin. His new article in science explores hidden treasures that have surfaced on the coast of the Netherlands. They include such things as neanderthal tools. A willy mammoth tooth and human remains from thousands of years ago. These remarkable fines lending significant insight into the ecological and anthropological history of the region. Hi Andrew All right. The story highlights a variety of people from a nurse to university professors who were studying the samples from vastly different perspectives. Generally speaking who were the scientists involved in the research so it's kind of an incredible array of different disciplines that are being brought to bear on the same questioner region there geneticists archaeologists geographers people who specialize in underwater mapping. And then. There's also one of the things that really interested me in a story. There's a big contribution being made by amateurs interested in the fines and spend time just looking for the stuff on each where it washes up right so these things are just washing up on shore. What are some of the most compelling fines that have been dredged up so some of the most compelling fines are stone and bone tools and human remains that date back seven thousand or more years ago some of which goes all the way back to fifty thousand years when the the area was populated by neanderthals? They're also finding animal remains. They found Bama's skulls all kinds of things that date back to a time when the shore off the Netherlands and the UK in the North Sea was actually above water. So how are these finds turning up on the beach in the first place? It used to be that these finds would turn up in fishing nets and sort of at random but in the last few years as the Netherlands has really focused on coastal reclamation and protecting their coast against sea level rise. They've been dredging sand and gravel offshore and bringing it and dumping it on the beach and in those massive hundreds of thousands of tons of sand and gravel that they've brought in from offshore there are bones stone tools human remains that slowly then get uncovered by the waves and they're amateurs who go out to the beach every day almost and just look for the stuff as it as it comes out of the sand. Pick it up. Send pictures of it to archaeologists then identify it and they work together to analysts. Awesome and like you said. These fines are eating found by all these different types of people. Could you outline some of the techniques being used to analyze the fines? There's actually geneticists who are scraping DNA straight off the sea floor and showing what kind of plants and animals live there when it was terrestrial land. The fines are one aspect of the whole effort. Devoted to trying to figure out what the landscape under the North Sea looked like before the last ice age ended and flooded the area so at one point there was an area three or four times bigger than Modern Day Holland. That was all above ground. There were forests there were rivers and it was probably heavily populated. Sounds pretty beautiful actually. Yeah what kind of DNA is being analyzed. So geneticists are using ancient DNA techniques to look at both the soil to get DNA from there and also analyzing human remains. The collectors have found on the beach. That are actually really well preserved because of the cold and wet at the bottom of the sea to get whole human genomes and you can then look at the ancient. Dna from these populations that lived in an area that is now underwater very cool. There's a specific item that surface that holds huge significance. And that's the landscape of the area being studied. What are some of the most important lessons learned about the landscape of this submerged region? I mean part of it is just that it's cool to go is one of the researchers. I talked to said. They're getting maps of a country that you can't visit so there's this massive landscape that was once above water and they're testing out all these different ways to look at it could also be applied to other coastal regions. That were once habitable. That were once passages to new lands like the landscape between Alaska and Asia for example Barron. Jia they call it yeah and look at how you know how these areas worked for human migration how humankind spread around the world. There are these key gaps in our knowledge because the sea levels today are thirty meters higher than they were twenty five thousand years ago right and you mentioned these maps that they're able to make out of information being collected and one of the sources of that information are these energy companies. Could you explain how these energy companies are contributing to the data collection? And what that data help discover sure. It's been a really interesting and sort of inspirational collaboration. Between scientists and industry in the North Sea is a is a tremendously important commercial area for shipping. And then there's a lot of wind farms oil. Well gas well drilling and so companies went out and did these seismic surveys to see what was deep under the ground. And for the archaeologists it was a very top level. That wasn't maybe commercially. Valuable but tremendously valuable. In terms of the knowledge it contains about the landscapes so they worked with the companies to get that data. And then we're able to start. These maps based on seismic survey data. There's also been some interesting collaboration. Between companies that dredged gravel for construction use and then led archaeologists have access to the stones and dirt that are dragged up from the bottom of the sea which was once land these maps and some of this information really revealing what humans were like thousands of years ago what civilization was like before this landscape changed. So what did this region? What does this research teach us about human history? The very end of this landscape was populated by modern humans. Just like you and me who were hunter gatherers. At first they were in a landscape that was probably a lot like the most fertile parts of England were Hollander Belgium today and then slowly over a couple of hundred years. Some of the research has revealed that as the water levels rose it transformed into more of estuary wetland area but people kept living there and they managed to adapt and change their lifestyle to the rising seas which I guess goes to show you. The climate change is an old story of course that that begs the question right. This begs the question of sea level. Rise impacted these civilizations and we can see it. Is that going to tell us? About our present. On the one hand they managed to deal with a certain level of sea level rise and then there came a point about seven thousand years ago when there were a series of nominees and the landscape completely disappeared. It was rendered uninhabitable su-nam as that's That's pretty familiar. Actually yeah I mean for a while. Archaeologists were reluctant to get into this one expert. Told me because they didn't want to be seen as digging after chasing after lost continents or Atlantis or something like that. But as the techniques have gotten more and more advanced it turns out that they can do some really scientific

I'm talking with Jia Tolentino staff writer for the New Yorker and author of the Book Trick Mirror. Well it seems to me that like in having the conversation about how you do or do not want to celebrate. What could be a lifetime commitment or what at the very least is a very significant commitment. You're basically saying that you're all in your saying I'm all in and yet I don't need this you know it's not like you were just saying this isn't for me. You're not you know you're not saying you're not for me. You're just saying you are for me and in that I do not have to have this marker of of that commitment. I don't think that I had as clear an understanding of my future with Andrew. Then as I do now you know I think it was a genuinely unsettling thing for him to hear when it's your twenty three year old girlfriend saying she never wants to get married. You Know No. You're right now it might mean something else but I also just don't think that much about like the case against marriage. It's so it's to me. It's just baldly obvious the case against all of these kind of what I find to be. Basically humiliating conventions of even a straight couple. The woman waiting around for a man to propose to her. I I find it just utterly humiliating for me. The hardest thing is to make the case for it and I almost didn't include the essay because the me that was writing it was a me of maybe four years ago like I haven't actually had to think that much about not getting married anymore because it's just like people have stopped asking our friends that are getting married now or having less traditional weddings like the whole the whole sense of sort of this sort of unbroken ecosystem of tradition that. I felt locked in when in my early twenties doesn't feel like that anymore and so I don't have to think about it anymore. Which is amazing. I mean in some ways. I'm surprised my closest couple friends who is set up like they've been together fifteen years or more and are not married by choice a man and a woman. She is still in her forties now constantly asked. Are you guys? GonNa get married and I would mostly. It's mostly her called that it just hasn't been of interest to her so it's like any time she meets. New People family members. Still sort of joke about it. I think and so. I'm wondering at these weddings over the years. I'm sure you guys got that question all the time. How did people approach you versus him? Somebody at the Boston Globe actually said to me about this friend will she? Is she waiting like they were concerned for her? And I was like yeah I mean. That's I think that's that's the way that people would talk to me about. Getting married is the thing. That underlined for me. How much even though today? We all a spouse ideas of equality that was the thing that made me aware of straight marriage as a site of gender re segregation right like it was like all of a sudden you would start doing all of these women only events you know there was just something in the way people talk to me about marriage in a way that they did not talk to. Andrew about it even though people did ask him that all the time But in a different way than they asked me it made me just aware of the wedding as a thing that serves a place in culture. It's the most. Broadly glorified that a woman will be in her lifetime which I found so upsetting and so offensive and so sad because as humans like where we changed forever you know like women do people do so much more so many more exciting things than fall in love with each other. I think partly because of me. I think I've always found I've been. I've been really lucky in my relationships and this is part of the reason that like. I'm fully aware that my the way that I think about weddings is predicated on me. Having always felt extremely secure and confident in these relationships that I've had where I just have never seen the need of any sort of formality. But I to me. It's like love is not that interesting. Love is just love is natural. And it's an it's easy like an easy and it's fun and it's not you know. It's not an accomplishment to fall in love with someone and it's not an accomplishment to be to decide to love you know to commit to someone to me. It just seems like the most natural thing in the world scene. So yes see. I as somebody who doesn't necessarily know if I can do that I think it's like it looks like it's something that takes great skill to be a partner. Now that said if that ever happened to me I still don't think I would. I know in fact I wouldn't want to celebrate it in that way but I still feel like going right like it. It seems very personal right like if I was able to pull that off it would be like a private wonderful thing to celebrate with my partner but Yeah but so people would just talk to me about it like in this cutesy way you know like when do you think it's going to be time for you guys you know and like what are you and like it would be so sort of? The implication was that I was laying in. Wait for for this thing and that it would be this grand. It just became clear to me that it was this event that it's the single event in a woman's lifetime where she's encouraged to conduct everything on her terms and after that you know you get married and it's sort of like a trade off. It's this massive glorification in exchange for just this structural dismissal. You know at every level of our like social safety net workplace policies and stuff where get married and then. Their identities are systematically subjugated to that of their husband and kids and weddings to me. You know I think that used to scare me about them. It was just this idea like you'll settle down right like you will reorient your life around the closed in circle of domesticity and years ago. I figured out that that's not how all married people live. And that's not how I would ever have to live if I got married but there was just this this all of these sort of connotations patterns that come with marriage that I was sort of even out of a sort of superstition not wanting to invoke upon my own life You write that. The obsession hatred of weddings. These like two sides of a coin are sort of always a part of our culture Can you talk a little bit about that? So weddings come with. They have this sort of double face the phenomenon of the contemporary wedding. It has this double faced aspect to it. Where they're these two versions of a woman that are conjured by the wedding rate like there's this monstrously glorified transcendently visible bride. And then there's the shadow self of the woman that accompanies the wedding. Which is the woman whose name disappears and and those two things are related right. The sort of tacit understanding that women have to sacrifice so much more to a domestic household than men do is one of the underlying things was one of the underlying reasons why women are so glorified in the wedding. Sort of an unspoken trade off right. I mean it. It's impossible not to be suspicious of any institution where I mean just as an advice columnist so many of my letters are about people waiting for proposals and I wish I could tell you. More of those people are men like anything that's stacked in one particular way and you know I've had this with women friends of mine were. I'm not entirely sure what is tied to the want of that but it certainly is a. I should buy this age. I should be doing this. I should have without the full analysis of of what they want.

"jia" Discussed on 10 Things That Scare Me
"Okay so number one. I feel okay so I've been blessed with an extremely even temperament and like a lot of sort of cognitive coping mechanisms like let's say I'm like on acid or something and I see you know a little tiger walk up to me like even on. I said I'm very capable of being lake. That is a fun tighter that my brain invented and it's not real and how interesting the brain invented that in. That's nice you know but so my fear is that that sort of cognitive mechanism will break like maybe it's just really like a thin shimmering curtain keeping me from total addicts and luckily that curtain has always stayed down but what if it was lifted one day Number two holding a baby and falling flat on my face on the sidewalk and number three that I will die having wasted many opportunities to be good to the people who love me. Number four is getting stuck in a little pod in the deep deep ocean. And and encountering like a giant centipede number. Five is like ruining my hearing because I went to too many concerts I spent so much of eighteen years in my twenty s like all of my twenty s going to as many shows as I possibly could and standing as close to the front as I possibly could and just like pummeling humbling myself with sound and it felt so good and it still feels so good but this is like a very elegant little nightmare because in wanting to creep deep so much of this pleasure that brings so much meaning in my life. I'm ruining my ability to experience. Pleasure number six running out of gas in the middle of nowhere and then dying of thirst number seven seven is like not a fear as much as something that I do all the time. But I'm afraid of-of going to places because you think climate change is going to destroy them back to those places being part of the climate change that is destroying them like I was watching the glaciers melt in Patagonia and thinking what a shame it was but I had also flown half later on the world to see this glacier and I was contributing to the warming that's making the glacier melt number eight is childbirth which I have not experienced. I'm just afraid afraid of that level of pain like I have an. IUD Like just the pain from that. I was just like Oh my God like I was you know. My vision was spackling with sweat and I was like you know my body was just like no no no no but at the same time I resent this fear. Because it's like I want to have a baby eventually so now it's like this fear is if I am so lucky that I will get to experience. One of my worst fears. Number nine is leaving the stove on and setting my house on fire like three weeks ago I was working and I had been making softball dug in a little sauce pot. I looked over like I shouldn't say this because if my boyfriend listen this'll be like you're responsible. You're burning your house down. The I'd removed the little saucepan but I left the burner on this little blue. Flame was just sitting there and he was like Oh my God and so every time I left the house. I've been like left the burner on a gun and my dog is a charred skeleton. Her great right now number ten is that in like two generations all of humanity will be living underground and like eating wing pellets. And thinking that like this right now is the peak Giovanni now MBA is our ten things that scare me.
"jia" Discussed on Today in Focus
"You still harboring some sadness that you didn't win. The show is on and you went on to study at the University of Virginia and then joined the peace courts in your own words to stop you from becoming asshole but you always need that you wanted to to be a writer you write about actually how you've always written and you've always written online because like me I think similar age thirty yes and we've always had the internet in our lives ready from this kind of formative years and you talk about blogging from the age of ten and kind kind of describe this era of Internet where things were simpler and you made me think about when I east to get this hour every evening on dial up to use the Internet and I would go on amazing world of MSN MESSENGER and I remember the first time I went into a chat room and it was like running onto a motorway and it was really scary and I didn't like it but do you back on that with some nostalgia. Nostalgia is kind of a happier time. When we use the Internet light I think for people our age. It's it's a really particular thing because we came of age exactly when the Internet did and our innocence percents was the Internet's innocence and it's impossible to separate that the Internet used to feel and I don't think it was just like this for ten year olds right it used to feel like a place that you would go and that you could do things in private and you could discover things and discovery would serve as its own private reward which is how most of life is right and it could surprise you and I it could it felt generative freight and you felt free to be yourself and the change from that was when all like now on the Internet. The things that you see are the same things that everyone else is. Everything is intertwined with these basically for central networks. Everyone's what everyone is looking at algorithms early influences what everyone else is looking at and the capacity just the programmatic capacity for surprise has dwindled to nearly nothing. It's like all we have our memes. That's it you know now like all we have our memes and catastrophes yeah yeah and and I think I do feel and there are very obvious systematic reasons for the Internet becoming humming the way it has become it's like it has centralized corporate is brought about how we will present an image of ourselves and you have an instagram account. I Sadler your instagram account. You really fun on Instagram but you have a lot of fun. It looks great. But how do you see that presentation of your self. Is it you or what Jia ah which Jerry we sing when we look at your instagram account. I don't know I feel that the only way that these systems are going to be survivable is if we are actually like ourselves if we are not different on the the Internet and off. I'm exactly the same on the Internet as I am off of it and like I am fun you know like like I think that the idea of performing for each other it's not necessarily leave. It's not in itself a terrible thing. It's inevitable and it's natural. I want it's it's it's built into human interaction that when we in real life we meet and we want to be good for each other the basic you know performance of being a good friend or being a decent person riding in the back of a cab or these are all miniature performances and it's good that we want to be good for each other. What's dangerous is when the Internet's very specific incentives start distorting that so we start performing a different way one that's dictated take more by algorithms goals than personal ones and or if our personal goals start to become intertwined with the algorithm ones and that's when stuff really starts to get dark and so so the only way to handle that is just never think at all about how I'm coming off and just hope that might actual self is fine enough that that will be okay you talk about concentrate. You have a phrase which I think a lot of people familiarized. There is with which is so optimization. Can you explain what you mean by that so optimization is just the idea that everything should be getting more efficient and perfect and beautiful forever this perpetual perpetual improvement and I think that the way that that idea maps onto the female body in particular is really really interesting. You know yeah. I think that there's this underlying implication in culture right now and it is completely just a capitalism based implication. Is that like we exist on this earth to be getting better to always be getting better and it sounds so natural and it kind of feels natural but we aren't actually put on this earth to got more beautiful inefficient until we die but everything about women has you as soon as you read a teen magazine or something when you're twelve you sort of get the idea that to be a woman is is to be facing down the requirement that you continually improve yourself and so yeah. I wrote eleven thousand words about it a lot of things you talk about things. I would find seemingly inoffensive see talk about a fast food a salad bar. Chen could sweet Green Fish Taco Ball Spicy Thai salad our landfill Avocado Bowl. Can you talk about the exercise class bar which is based in Berlin aerobics. I train. I'm all things that people do. All the time is going to get quick lunch and doing these exit clauses in there you know after work or whatever but what is it about those things which you think we need to analyze well as of the Internet right. These are things that I also do. Casually you know routinely keenly without a second thought you know and then sometimes when I would do them there would be a little earthquake in my brain and I would get this deep feeling of existential dread. About what am I being so efficient for you know I'm eating the fourteen dollar salad and checking my email while I eat the salad so that I can get back to my desk in this job that allows me to have the salad and the salad is something that I have to eat because I work so much that I need to eat a lot of nutrients in ten minutes or else. I'll die. The the the doom of it all would really settle on me and it's not to say that like again with all of the things that I all the things that I'm critiquing here. I'm trying to approach them. From a standpoint of pleasure to there are reasons were attracted to these things and they're good ones and with leisure. I used to work above the LULULEMON flagship store in New York. Are you familiar with Lululemon visiting the company that makes a yoga pants that are so tight they cut off circulation to the part of your brain that decides how much money it's okay to spend on yoga and I would just I walked by it and just get these. Shimer's of like it seemed to me that athletes was late capitalist fetish wear which is like a uniform that you wore when you wanted to treat your body like like a market asset that would continue to improve its performance on the market over time and something about that feels so natural to me. I do go to these classes. I you know it's like Nick. Well got to get my head clear that I keep working so that I can keep affording these classes that I can keep getting my head clear so that I can keep affording the you know and it's and it was we the economic conditions of right now they make a lot of what formerly seemed sort of super rogatory sort of optional and kind of beneficial it now is nearly mandatory and this efficiency is mandatory like all the way up and down the income scale you know if you're an uber driver you also have to be monstrously monstrously mantra officiant. If you are an Amazon warehouse worker. You have to be monstrously truly efficient. If you're a creative class white collar worker you have to be monstrously efficient and it's like these industries. It's the whole wellness. Industry is part of this. These things have sprung up basically as adaptive mechanisms to get people to adjust to a world of endless work and you talk about how this ties in with this new sort of feminism that we have now which which encourages all of us to be beautiful in everyone is beautiful which is a great and positive message but also put huge pressure and creates a new standard of beauty which you felt. We just need to escape completely. Well Yeah I mean. Feminism has done a lot of a lot to rebrand old requirements things that we were asked to do for men as has things that we're now supposed to do for ourselves in its feminist you know to be like that. It's really politically important that everyone beautiful which is in one way wonderful in another way like such an obvious trap up. I mostly think it's so obvious that the realm of like this is another thing that I write about in the book but the realm of what's possible is basically unlimited in terms of physical improvement and you know in the states we don't have universal healthcare or paid family leave or any you know our reproductive rights are being eroded by the second and at the same time you know if I wanted a to make myself into a beautiful Cyborg I could you know I could do anything to my body and face and I can do almost nothing to my political life and it's yeah I think it's very very telling some people listening to this my foe quite despondent by the compensation and buy some things right about and you don't offer solutions at the end of your essays to the problems that you kind of raised. Why is that I think that well. It's interesting generally generational. There's been a big difference in how people have reacted like people older than me think. My Book is very fatalistic and people younger than me think tell me it gives them hope the reason that I don't offer any solutions because I am so sick of the thing and riding where where people will lay out this very true extended argument for the the state of the world in structural crisis and then offer then- wrap it up with this note of certainty and path forward that doesn't feel true to what I'm thinking and how I feel and I think when we talk about these things in real life we don't wrap it up with that sense of solution John and certainty we are sitting with each other at the bar and thinking yeah what are we going to do and that to me seems a lot more important with solutions forward. I mean the real reason I'm not offering solutions that everyone's GonNa do whatever they want to do anyway like I'm. I can't tell anyone what to do at best. I'm trying to establish a common language for myself and I think it's you know the solution to all of these things. It's just all on a policy level. It's not like we the so much is set up to make the individual seem so important individual action seem so important and it matters what we do but there are solutions to all these things but they are nothing that I can do myself and there nothing and in its very there so obvious that I didn't want to ruin the book by saying these really obvious things like we need universal healthcare and the states like it's it's so obvious. Do you ultimately feel hopeful for the future for for young women. Yes I definitely do that is one thing that I I mean. There are a lot of things that I feel objectively hopeful about and I mean the fact that like in more freedoms at least culturally have been unavailable to women at with every passing year I absolutely feel hopeful on that.

"Right reasons and there are also some people are fucking president who you know use this ability to who kind of be a wrestling character with their opposition and they you know you can use it to some literally like you know world destroying ends and I I think that the the shift from the Internet being organized around a affinity and you know as much as I don't miss the upward the era like I think even earlier when you think think about the ninety s you know like time. The Internet was oriented around discovery surprise and affinity at the shift between that and it becoming. It's like driving force being that of like like vicious opposition. I think that's basically in that essay. I was just trying to figure out why the Internet used to feel good and feel so bad now and I think that that's one of a huge reasons. Why also like ourselves. Our identities are not meant to be monetize to this degree and like I think that's one of the things that makes us. All feel like what are we doing. It's like the Internet takes this amazing thing which is just humans trying to figure out who they are and just trying to be alive and it monetize it in ninety five different directions till you know there's this low level feeling of kind of like unsustainability in panic. I think yeah if I can just talk about the one thing I really connected with the book. It's that you know. It was the idea of you know. I I've been myself for other reasons. I have been just sort of meditating on the Internet and our place in it and just thinking about even the fact that I feel like if I look back at the older days of like when I started on twitter like like at Buzzfeed when people started to know who I was online like I was not Tammy Laron you know of trying Tommy Lee and whatever her name is trying to be like that kind of opposition but there was some sort of opposition. I feel like in the way that I operate it in the way that you know I would make you know like while jokes about some pop culture topic or like some joke that I know's going to go too far. Were maybe some people like it. Some people will be mad about it and that's just sort of how you develop a personality and person that People WanNa thrive off either following following or they follow you because they don't like you and it's weird that we all just sort of have become a version of that. You'd be successful. I was like that to to being at Gawker. You know working at Jabot which was under Gawker. I mean it was the entire you know. DNA of that website was built on being extremely kind of punchy and in combative to some degree and the thing is that's with all of these things it's like. There's something about that. That's really important right like the Internet is genuinely a really democratizing force because it it allows people to punch up no matter who they are right. It's like it's that's the thing that allowed you know like the there's a reason that the Internet has given rise to did these sort of power toppling black lives matter and no and the standing rock protest rate with the Internet does the way the Internet can put people on an equal playing field all of a sudden. There's also a really amazing thing about it but it's also one of the reasons that the opposition principle has gotten so intense last question. Did you ever wash the show ghost rider. Are you kidding me. I love that show. Oh my God. I hadn't thought about that in years if we're talking about the Internet and opposition. I feel like maybe in those early stages of Internet. The first Internet villain I remember was when Julia stiles played the hacker mad mouse and she was terrorizing during the school. Oh my God what's she wearing something like a beret and a leather jacket. She's wearing like a bath sat in just like your like Wesley Snipes. I like ghost rider. I had all the books of that.

Oh my God like one of the things that I have been most grateful about you know in recent years in his specifically as it pertains to my life and as it has pertained to the reception of this book. Is that finally like we're no longer seeing like you know. It's just this thing where we all grew up in this like the straight white male experience was framed as you know an explanation of what it was to be a human right and everything else was special interest and I think as you know in highschool just reading story after story like this. I just just all of this. Discontentment was was bubbling and me that are points of views are no longer a special interest. You know in a lot of ways like with this book one thing that I was thinking what what am I only secret goals for it. Was I want to read a book that was mostly about women but that wouldn't be framed as lake. You know here's a feminist thing that you can choke down to take your medicine. You know something the thing that was about women but wouldn't be talked about like that would just be like it's about women but it's about it's more than that. It's about being alive right now but almost all of the book is about women kind kind of and and I think it was partly my desire to try to do that. came out of just like so many just like you know like yeah.

It felt very uncomfortable going to the sections. Were those books that you might be interested in. Were as like you didn't. WanNa be seen perusing. The Gay and Lesbian Section right didn't want to be seen by saying oh you're only going to re black books like I also remember the gay and Lesbian Section Barnes and noble being exactly one like six shelf thing and it was next to like Christian thought it was about also speaking of Shakespearian level things.

I Like I fully gave like fifteen pounds twenty four week because it was like I was just like like you know you're sixteen and you can have Pinochle Day like it's felt like a miracle right but he's on the show in two thousand four and I never watched it was I think I could feel this age of self broadcasting cresting and I think I knew that I would participate in it forever and I was like Oh this is you can get get away with something here. You can have done something really stupid and never really have to face the consequences of it never watched it and then I was writing a book thinking about writing a book about self delusion and you know the the construction of the self in in these systems of contemporary life and I was like Oh God I did this show. I have to remember that I was on this show and I watched it all. It was nuts when I think reality. TV I still generally speaking think of people in their twenties misbehaving. You know it's it's the bachelor it's I love New York orc things like that but really at the time of my life when the appeal of reality I would've wanted myself to be on a reality show probably would have been as a teenager nature when I say getting into drama club etc so it's very interesting to see who actually did it as a teenager and how native narcissism that's universal to all of S.'s teenagers. I think it's really an also like when we were teenagers. It wasn't you know like reality. TV Hadn't turned into what it is turned into. Now right was still a novelty. You know so reinterviewed everyone. Everyone is on the show at Yeah I love those interviews with those people especially the girl who just sort of works at whole foods and just seems like she she has the one that we bullied just Paris when you believe but like the way she still talked was in like reality. TV ready sound bites so it's like of course there's a there those those people who were sort of the prototype for what would become the way we talk or it's just they learned it from mm being in that environment and it's why you can always just sort of go to some small town right and just sort of like pluck out people and they fit the mold for reality TV so well speaking of kids reality shows. I was obsessed with the paper that MTV Reality Star about never saw that what's the paper the paper was that high school paper and it aired in about. I think I was graduating college that time for the play two thousand eight yeah but it it really got in Cypress Bay Highschool Western Florida and it was just about senior editors of school paper cameras around. I mean it just there's no Dorky or console type. Thanks so much worse. It's like kids with notepads running around the football field getting quotes and stuff Harriet the spy corona reference to watch this yeah you guys if you guys could have been on a reality TV show. What would you have wanted to be on. what what's weird is what's still on my mind as Iran. I have a mutual friend who won the show big brother and I still on big brother. Yeah unfortunately it is I mean here's the here's what I need. Nothing need my cell phone. It's not that I need wikipedia so to be away from that for four months with truly the yes is there. Wasn't that that thing with big brother like. Didn't they like not tell them for a day that nine eleven happened. Yeah isn't that story. I mean I still remember the real world season where they saw nine eleven happening like Dr Day of so both y'all big brother so funny. Oh no another one of Lewis's favorites of I would kill to be on the mall. Oh I love. I missed the multi same same I also of course I wanted to be on like legends of the Hidden Temple. My all of us were shot exactly uh-huh fucking Olmec. I actually found the like the the remember how scary it was when the trees hands would pop out of is Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah like Ah. I still find really scary. I think all of us on this reality show like we still. We were close enough to being children that we like. Some of our challenges were kind of legends of the Hidden Temple Unilever assembling sort of you know as tech puzzle Super Racist Aztec Puzzle. What would you be on now. If let's say you had to be on one today. What would would you be. Andrea well so I think I don't watch any reality. TV I watched I would get stone and what shark tank like constantly for awhile and then Bethany Frankel go went on and I was like I get I but I've never seen the real housewives of never seen bachelor Bachelorette. Everything Van Republic any of that stuff and so the the thing is if I was conventionally attractive enough to get cast on Bachelorette and now I'm way too old but I have always like one of the things that I like. The most about being journalist is that it just gives you away to just plop in somewhere. See something like I would love to be like a mole on the Bachelorette like I would love to just somehow trick them into like I'm dying to know what that shows actually like. I loved unreal and I've I've never seen the actual Bachelorette but you know like I I really you. WanNa know what what those shows are like when you film them. Yeah I wanna say that the your book is also called is Trick Mirror reflections actions on self delusion and what I really liked was what you wrote about just how we all interact with each other on the Internet and how how on that phase of I mean someone who used to work at buzzfeed right and I remember the days when they were telling us. You know your posts can't be you can't be a hater. You know you gotta be happy. You know you always have to love something right and now about how the Internet now I just thrives is off opposition. it makes me just really about like what are we all doing on social media anymore and I really like how so in your book you're able to write about how we use the Internet today. I think that we're all part of this generation that you know like our lives. This will always be. We came of age. When the Internet did I mean it's it's literally the you know the pulsing organ through which the entire through which every other thing in contemporary contemporary life is routed. You know just like it's the beating heart at the middle of everything now and it's and it's also such a nightmare and I think people that do really well on the Internet. I've been thinking a lot with all of a lot of book self promotion. I've been thinking about what makes people suited to these mechanisms of self surveillance and self promotion and I've been thinking about how long I have been taking to these things without even noticing it like as without reality TV show but there's also something about the Internet the way it's structured. I mean these companies companies that are built on monetize ing attention. They are profitable the the the more irritated and angry and frustrated we are and there's a way in which that's kind of working into who interpersonal interaction where the people that are thriving on the Internet are tend to be people that are really good at dealing with position you know the tend to be people that are really good did at and I think that there's some people that do this really well and for the.

"Tolentino he now. I'm so excited. Thank you for having. Oh my God yes. I just want to say the name Trick Mirror and just like the cover ever is so seventies that every time I look at it I keep singing music in the mirror from a chorus line the intendant thing you wanted right yeah well. I didn't realize 'til like so. I'm from Texas and I I'm from Houston so most people from Houston don't have Texas accents like my parents aren't from Texas but I I realized after I sold the book that I can't say mirror properly like I say like mayor like I say Trick Mirror like I can't. I can't say it like mirror or whatever I looked here. Wait how how y'all Mirror Mirror IRA kinda says. Is it yeah so Louis C. You say it Kinda like do mirror like one word like anyway anyway. Lewis is the covers very seventies. Yes I love love it. I love the cover I love the words I mean. I knew I was going to let the words because you are a fantastic writer. I always love reading your Writing Extend Ya. I remember just comparing favorite parts of this book. I'M GONNA jump into the part about literary heroines and your relationship with them. Can you just talk about. Can you just talk about like you. First of all you clearly have read everything first of all just the sheer amount of like characters you cover in the section so sprawling but just talk about what led you due to reevaluate how you absorbed these stories and how you kind of resented the implication that you should relate to them and just how you you know what you're taken. I'm from reading all these stories the thing about this heroines essay in all the conversations about representation in pop culture and identification. I I've never felt connected to any any of that like I never. I never had the impulse to be like. Am I carry them. Is Samantha my or whatever I never connected to the you know. Which little women sister are you like all of that. I never had the impulse to try to see myself in anywhere in pop culture. I knew that there were two things that went into that one. It was is absolutely a racial thing. I still have never seen anyone on camera really ever. That's anything like me or had a life anything like mine and it's partly because my life was kind of particular like my parents are Filipino but I grew up in Houston in the suburbs and I think it never it never even occurred to me as a possibility that I could be represented wanted and as a result I have not needed. I I've sort of developed this thing where you know I can understand pop culture representation as an important issue and not personally relate to it is something that I have needed to build my sense of self and so there was that and there is also the fact that there was something about me that didn't want to identify with these narratives about women for specific reasons that I I thought that I could identify if I went back and read basically all the books about this sort of canonical heroines Irwin's from Laura Ingalls to you know out there in the Bell Jar to you know Anna Karenina and there was this thing about the trajectory of literary heroines. What's an yeah. I just read constantly as a kid. I still read constantly there. Is this thing there was this journey that they went from these brave plucky like super adventurous interest girls and then they would get to be teenagers and they would the story would become about how they were really beautiful and they were really desirable and they were so depressed and you know the future was opaque and mysterious steriods and like sexy but scary and bad and then they would get older than they would get married and they would become bitter women who were trapped by the economics of marriage or by infidelity or whatever and then often they would die like in the age of innocence or over here. Anna Karenina all of these all these stories are the awakening and I was like what is it. Why is this the trajectory of literary heroines. Why why is it that I only identified with these girls. I was like you know. Is this a case of like severe arrested development super childish like why is it that my identification stopped short in pop culture when I was about seven years old and just never and it was just this idea of like how the you know the narratives. We look got the narratives we read shape the narratives that we develop about our lives. It was also just really fun to read all those books again. You know maybe it was like that. Maybe the essay was just a pretense tenths for me to get to read all that Shin. I did not write an essay when I reread all the goosebumps books. So at least you did something really yes. I reread that some of them are scary. the lead John Kerry dump dummies historically scary. I remember be careful. What you wish for is a particular group. This is what you want to talk about yeah. No I was always scared by the ones like like any funhouse clown adjacent like that trump was so fucked up for me. Have you guys watched argue for you to the dark. The clown episodes of the scariest ones are afraid of the dark. It's still scary yeah okay. That's what I thought the clown in the funhouse yeah and the one where the girl gets shrunk down you know the little doll houses though like that one scared the shit out of me that scared me because not only she trapped in a doll house but she lost human qualities like she she became she was in a very kind of American doll outfit so she was just losing any semblance of humanity while I'm really surprised they haven't haven't rebooted. Are you afraid of the dark honestly their reasoning all this dumb stuff and it's like you know give me some more of that like I'd watch it and I think mostly some of them are just dumb like there's one episode where it's based on the fact that native Americans don't like having their pictures taken because it can steal your soul right kidding me uh-huh horrified votes. That's so yikes. I don't remember that one. I remember also there was like a it was a goosebumps uh-huh. Maybe Erzik fear street where like like something. It was like a toilet based monster. It was like something would jump up through the toilet whole Jack you and I remember like I couldn't sit down to take a nice book about a sponge that was came beneath the same I remember it came from the sink and it was a sponge this like we're getting into the thirtieth or thirty first book and we you know bonds a little frightening one. Call Vampire breasts like you're really looking around like he's just like what do I got water bottle kind of all of them. You know I based on how present he is on twitter. I feel like maybe he must have been pretty with it. You know I don't know there's some things that that novels are really incredible at doing. and I think that like notoriously fiction is really bad at being sexy and it's also really it's hard to find a really scary book but you know what I mean like. I like like books. Are It's really really hard like it's almost all famous. Fiction writers are pretty bad at writing sacks and it's it's hard to write sex. It's also really hard to be scary. There is this book called. Fever Dream Rian biased Spanish writer named Samantha Schwebel and it was fucking scariest shit like it's like a single sitting novel and I like I I mean I was so scared by the end I'm reading. It and I think they're adopting. It and it's going to be great but it's I also I admire those books for actually being able to be scared. I don't only think it was because we had undeveloped minds as children if if you read them recently and thought they were scary. Maybe I should take a look. Do you think there's something in the idea just of the way we read books than and the way that you write books that makes it easier for just sort of sadness to be something that really resonates in a book part of the what I was writing about in that heroines essay is that men like great male protagonists like the one we think of as you know you'd have to Ernest Hemingway coming way in school and and you would be told that he was working out the human condition right like Gatsby was about like this existential situation the swimmer in the cheever story Raymond Carver's protagonists like all of these things will get talked about their men. It's about what it is to be alive. As a human and then novels about women they're like they're not about transcendence and the experience of being live there about what it is to be a woman bounded within really specific social conditions the novel super novels are really good at expressing thing these sort of questions of existence in context of society and systems culture because those things are like they take their sort of accumulative right like like they. It's like why everyone is calling the wire novelist all the time it's because it takes a long time to build the context that's required to express this sort of stuff but fear and you know awarness like that that is sort of a that sort of like just a sensory almost pre-verbal nonverbal thing and that's why. I think it's so hard for people not right well yeah. I thought that James Baldwin wrote really well. It's like sex scenes in another country. and I and I really we feel that as teenagers were done a disservice by the books that we are supposed to read in school. I'll so so many things I saw. This is the worst thing y'all had to read in school. Oh God that's a good question right. Is it still catcher in the Rye. I hate catching the definition. You're supposed to identify with how conversational it is and then whatever you get two years old or are you. A real realized immediately at the time. This guy is so fucking like why would Xuemei release takes a second to realize it did y'all. How do you often read a separate piece. I did not I did not. This book radicalized me because it was so fucking boring. It was also like so gay in my life repressed Bible like we weren't allowed to speak the word gay out loud at school and like and so and my teacher like I kept being like is this book about their love for each other. Sexually you know in my teacher was like Gee. That's that's blasphemous. The book was so boring we spent so long on it and my teacher wouldn't talk about the only part in it that was interesting and I was just like man. You know if it's possible that we have to talk about this boring shit for six. You know it's like anything's possible in this world like in all these books like I was talking. I did that like by the Book New York Times Questionnaire russian-arab. One of the questions they asked was if you could make a book like required reading for anyone under eighteen what would it be and I said this book random family by Adrian Nicole Leblanc DONC..

"I remember Ashton era right but Charlie's angels full throttle which I think is that I want to say that is now her lasting iconic moment as in if you if you talk to somebody who's twenty four years old. They're gonNA bring that up. I was never good. I was great. I've actually never seen that movie. I don't think there's anything Charlie's angels. Full throttle is about meaning what it first of all. She has a point on. It's a legend in it. Is the moment yeah yeah. No I mean she looks stunning. Obviously I honestly don't think that movie would have worked without somebody like her in it because that movie is all over the place on the Golden Gun. There's so much going hot in that movie but there's also speaking when they say full-throttle like you watch. Charlie's angels and then you see the sequel and it's definitely like turnt up volume. Hi Shiloh booths in it Bruce Willis. Isn't it like there's so so much going on the story is all over the place but to me is I went to the trolley digital premier and I'm just seeing that was the first time her and Ashton and all the they we all came together and this was like the heyday of just like pop popcorn just wasn't like the beginning of a Paris Hilton Alton etc.. Yes and then things were starting to sort of like you knew it was going to die soon because he can't get hotter than this but she was when they first got together. I I like hearing like her. Inner Monologue about what she felt like people thought and like how her agent who was I think was Kevin Ngubane at the time was basically telling her that being with ashes making her look desperate and like you know not serious like not a serious actress but I just the only thing that makes me angry about that whole exchange even though they were hot couple is how much energy and effort she put into him. D really sapped worth. He was not worth it. It's also weird weird to see it so spelled out in the book like she talked about how she was pressured into three ways with him to keep it alive which is a very Jane Fonda Roger Vadim Era Marriage Ridge concession. Yeah what's funny about the troubles in those four throttle thing by the way is our friend Mat Rogers as mentioned in the book outright as a young journalist interviews recently. I think at sundown yes she said a young journalist interviewed me at Sundance and said that the moment where you say eh I was never I was great and a Single Tier Rosanna. I is his favorite moment from any film and I remember it's I texted Matt at set your favorite moment in any film slightly thirsty ever seen citizen Kane the Dow Mat Rogers has seen citizen. I we discussed another but he then mentioned mentioned that she's also a great crier and ghost and like she's one of the one of the iconic criers infirm and she goes on a tangent about how I'm Oh my God I was so worried about crying and ghost and now to be remembered as a crier onscreen. She's also really great. Producer who produced a lot of films produced Austin powers. The Austin Powers Series interesting and she just doesn't get a lot of credit. I feel like in from what it sounds like based on her book. I mean she seems like a perfectly nice woman. I'm sure sure she had to make tough decisions and beat that bitch in certain occasions but I really don't see why people have always treated her yeah. She's like the epitome of somebody who is treated as overexposed almost immediately. She's like you know taking up too much of our time but I would say what's. It's interesting isn't thinking about my favorite movies of hers. I would have to go with a more recent one. You've ever seen margin call. Haven't maybe I should good uh-huh. She's she's definitely the only woman in it yeah but it's basically than it right. It's barely it's it's more like he was Agra. Quinto and Jeremy Irons has a big moment. Okay I feel like yes Penn Bachelor. Put a lot of Kevin on the cover of the the movie right. I don't know what you would do with him at this point. Where's that memo. Where's the more well in the garbage please. I'd read it it and Rita Bryan singer memoir. Yeah okay well. I wouldn't buy it. I would torrent it. They'd probably download legally posthumous commits memoir from either them would send them to prison. They don't WanNA publicity tour. Yes you know I don't want you on my screen. I wanted to die and then I want to read you all right. Read like Amanda Woodward exactly exactly right. I've decided to forgive you. Both were schools for no oh. I wasn't about to be like I still stood Kevin Spacey. I flew to Italy to hear him read poetry we would never. I like the idea of a movie like Samos Fire. It's just a bunch of like these people is going to be super famous. The answer is four of them. You know I like the jump off point movies right in that movie. That movie is Godawful Yeah. Oh you hadn't seen it before no I. I saw it in college judge okay. I was like what the fuck is. I was a kid when it came out and all I remember the most iconic thing is is her room. Her Room is like this hot pink. Yes and that was like crying on the floor sats blurring like the curtains. I literally paint in my bedroom pink. When I was in mytalk she literally iconic though for women back then it was all about blondes it it was all about like this like the the like that and she was a raspy. You know brewery winona. Here's the the thing I wanNA ask talking about how she discusses Sexuality and etc.. I WanNa know what you think. her response to the indecent proposal reviews cause she talks about how would it came out. People were like this is the year of the woman but you know it's also about the year of bind women and it's like it says Robert Redford is sort of like raping her in the movie because it's like he's is paying for her but she talks about how with the childhood and like her mother like selling her off to the man who raped her when she was younger she defines the movie empowering because it's a woman on her own terms deciding to have sex for money. I it's it's a very her reasoning behind not shock me no but one thing that complicates this is that the movie sucks right the timing naming of it with the with the market being what it was at that time also. I think people I I liked that. It created conversations about. Would you think any movie that is capable of doing that. This is an air before social media and that you were able to sort of draw out these conversations that got people playing around with like you know. Roles calls like she's going to have to save us by putting it out. That movie is a black twitter twitter question yes would when you have this much money would you yes do. We have any final thoughts on his memoir. I really hope this gives us a chance you know. I feel like she's earned. It's not even about earning warning if she deserves it. Oh Five Tang one of my favorite antidotes in the book was talking about being on the set of a few good men and how one day it took forever forever for Jack Nicholson to come out of his trailer because he knew in advance. Magic Johnson was going to announce that he was HIV positive and he had a chance to watch it because he's such a Lakers Kherson. Yes he has spies on the Lakers. Also you knew he was going to announce it was so why did you need to watch. It wasn't a game right. It was it was like what did you think was. GonNa Happen really would love to be a fly on the wall of him watching that just that like my week with Marilyn bio-pic six days and Jack Nicholson trailer Magic Johnson's HIV I just I just want to know the thing is is that still an era the wind she was working when she was at the height of it was the height of when you can clearly do whatever whatever they those are the stories. I love the most the eighties early nineties when people were really unhinged so many stories in the book. I mean more money her career happen because the producers liked her at paid for her to go to Rehab. Yeah so she could be Hud set the fucking movie and it's just like the idea that Joel Schumacher was Joel Schumacher having it but the same in her fire yeah yeah pre him being like Oh. I'm going to put you in Rehab. So you can do do say elmo's fire. It's just like the idea that you were putting so much effort into an actress who rug alcohol problem. Melanie Griffith's Yup Yup and on working girl you know like in the thing is is like these women have been afforded opportunities that not many get You know to have a man. Dan beat obese empathetic to your plate or your situation. I feel like her career sort of parallel with Melanie with all the you you know the famous husbands the children the wanting to be a mother sort of being you know I will say that they both have minds for business and Bosphorus Right. We'll be right back with Miss Jia telling Tina struggling sleep these days. You're not allowed.

It was like pumping in loud but even louder than that was it was his words that we're kind of like penetrated into my reality. Let me just read you really quickly. Weekly jessica turn the lights off and chirp that it was time for back dancing a term that i thought collapsing onto the floor sounded like what people on a parenting message the board might use as a euphemism for sex it wasn't in fact for ten fucking we laid on our backs thrust hips into the darkness with a sacrificial devotion that i not apply to actual sex for years so i bring that up because i had this revelation at six thirty in the morning that i done this things so many times but was so little attention geos writing gave me deeper entrance into my own experience to me what is so extraordinary about about her work in jazz abell the hairpin new yorker. New collection is the generosity of her worldview. She offered a critical analysis of the ridiculous. Nicholas moves that we make in bar and the whole culture around it but it wasn't judgement. She is anti anti pleasure as she asks us together. How can we have nice things without those nice things eating us alive. I'm wary of all the voice generation stuff but i know that no one else no no one else's essays have the brutal momentum of hers dislike gathering ability even as she tears things apart.

You know i'm glad to be able to write about why so it's fun to write about wife guys but i feel so much guilt about that. Being thing that i'm good at is writing about this dumb shit. We've only been writing about schnell. That's true and i think always trying to build like some sort of tiny little invisible bridge between the dumb shit and something more important but anyway just to say like writing about the internet which i'm doing more and more it feels like i'm trying to dodge and weave the ridiculousness of it like a weight. I want to go back to the invisible bridge now. It is like help me understand what that if there is any connection with that connection is or is it literally dislike when not writing about all the bad stuff like is that just like kind of wrong and it's only right to read about not what i mean either right yeah because it's not like <hes> i just okay like like when i wrote about like large adult sons for the new yorker like there's a kind of point underneath it and then what i try to do is just not like someone after that tweeted at me every day for like two weeks being like. Why didn't you mention that. All of them are white and i was like that's the point of the piece. I just didn't say it you know and so i've been like kind of playing with like sometimes i will do that. Have the most obvious conclusion not be stated and like that's what i mean about the invisible bridge. There's there's like a there. Is you finish the pieces an obvious step you take onto some idea but it would be kind of fake deep. If you like wait a piece about a mean being like in that's racial politics in america for you know like it's sort of like playing with like how can you write about dumb stuff in a way that does reckon.

She's seventy and she basically the tension. That story was is she trying to get famous. As this idea of a feminist attorney or is she really about that and that was the thing that i had to figure you're out and i don't know i think just the profile writing itself is terrifying to me. You know it's like you. You are presenting a narrative of someone's self hood and you're kind of in control of how that's presented and it feels like a little too much power to have over someone one you know even though obviously you know your profiling people who are like have a lot of power but it's thinking about a piece generally being like i can trust myself to get this right is one thing when it's like. I can trust myself to get you. Is you know yum yeah. That's really audacious and and i and i think maybe i'm just a little. I was a little intimidated by that. I still am may be like it's it. Just seems like a a responsibility you just i want to go into. Thanks being like yeah. I think like i mostly think i can do this and it'll be it'll push me out like this much more in these ways rethinking at all about like a what her reaction to it will be or you able to get that on your head. I mostly don't think about that. I have such a high internal bar for fairness. I think doc i think every piece reported of always been petrified that it's unfair. Somehow you know that i've just totally totally misinterpreted the situation asian or i'm being wildly unfair but i am now understanding that that's kind of a natural and probably healthy corrective reflects that kind of ensures that i'm not that unfair probably so what you're <hes> like two years in three years what year when i i think we have early two thousand sixteen something like that. Yeah i guess and i left jesuit bell in the summer of two thousand sixteen three years yeah three years. It's been there for three years yeah. How closely has it hyun to like what your expectation was. If you think back to then again part of my thing about not thinking about the future is that i generally have no expectations of anything which is again something that generally serves me really well because it's just like whatever happens will happen and so i come from <hes> being an idiot you know like having a brain that likes to be blank like i really think that's true yeah and also you know probably just have some chip missing somewhere like i really really rooted in the present day really live in the president like yeah i was like i just realized that when a person turns thirty they are finishing their thirtieth year life not beginning it like it's like my brands is broken for. I still don't actually totally early understand that see. It's confusing. It's confusing okay see your brain is also zero weird. H that's the that's the i think that's the that's the where the confusion don't don't you think when someone turns thirty. It's like welcome to your thirtieth year. That's what it feels like. It just feels like yeah but that's not what it is. It's like you've done. You've worked your third first year which doesn't yeah i think birthday should be zero's kind of bullshit like you. Could you could come out at one that makes no sense zeros issue yeah anyway right so this is is what i mean like like my brain. Were properly clearly. Neither does yours and yes my expectations. I i expected expected that it would be very intimidating which it has not been people have been very nice. There and i was scared at the first ideas meeting you you know i mean i. I worked in like the gawker office where i was like always like in my jeans shorts vaping you know and you know obviously. I'm not going to roll into conde lake. Thank you know like screaming..

"Hello welcome to the podcast. I'm excellent game here with just one co host aaron. How are you sir. You're getting lonely on the show. At what point do we bring in a evan replacement the scab he's coming back. He's coming back. He'll be back. I think next week week after also maybe never but <hes> what <hes> what are we doing on the show this week. It's exciting one a long time. I'm coming the return of jia tolentino. I i've heard a lot about this jia tolentino book. I believe that i did not get a copy because you headed off off copy that came to long form the pass our now like <hes> to borrow but this the book is like totally original. It's not it's not a pre published rushed off. It's i know new essays yet. It's a collection of essays. <hes> a couple of them are online now just as excerpts of the book but <hes> they're all new <hes> she wrote them over the last year sort of on like nights and weekends around her job at the new yorker which is also a new development since she was on the show a couple years ago <hes> <hes> one one important note for this one. I actually talked to her. A couple of weeks ago before the book came out and <hes> it's a lot about that kind of moment <hes> <hes> before you book comes out in this thing you've worked on for so long is about to be on the world <hes> so it's a it's a it's like a little bit of time capsule 'cause her book is now out. It came out <hes> <hes> yesterday. It's called trick mirror and it's getting all sorts of <hes> insane attention all totally deserved so i. I know that we've caught some flack for doing too. Many book episodes on the shell show is <hes> extensively about long form magazine journalism but i think correct me. If i'm wrong max what we're trying to do <hes> is reflect on in the <hes> changing careers in writing that exists today and it does seem like a lot of those careers that maybe started on the internet. <hes> are ending up in the book room for probably a variety of reasons yeah. I think i think that is right. I think there's some economic reasons why that's happening both <unk> 'economic reasons about magazines and about book publishing <hes> but then there's also a thing which feels to me like <hes> this is episode three hundred fifty four. I'm impressed that you were able to just someone that from the ether. I'm not sure if you had given me the over under at three fifty. If i even knew which side we they were at but my point is like we are also in some cycle where people who came on the show several years ago who were early in their careers and and who we were incredibly excited about <hes> are now hitting this point in their careers where the writing books yeah. It's the process of human aging the process human aging. The positives of podcast is part of what's happening here. So i feel like <hes> yeah we have caught a little bit of flack for <hes> heaven so many people on who have books out but <hes> there are good reasons for it who <hes> who is bringing us the show this week man you know who you know who sponsored the show this week malcolm mail chimp that's right and <hes> particularly securely this project they do every summer called read this summer <hes> in which they pick a author to bring a group of authors to the decatur book festival this year. It's jenna worth them. She's got an incredible lineup. You can find all of their books at read this summer dot com and then you can go to the decatur book festival in september and <hes> go seaman person..
