Vod And I I hadn't even heard of it until it came to my attention through our mutual friend. Josh Bell and I'm glad I watched it and I'm glad we're talking about it so enjoy the conversation space. You're ready to go baby thinking about keeping that in the episode with me. Today is Jason Harris. And we're talking about bananas Split Jason. How's it going man? I'm doing well Jay. Finally I've persevered and have gotten through all the walls you put up to have me back on piecing it together you've seen you have all these other bums on now. Let's get to me baby. I love that I I opened up the Open up the Florida to movies as well. I mean there's just so much that we could cover and yet I still can't seem to find room for poor Jason Harris and such a mean guy aren't I that's okay we can you know you know. I think we'll find another movie after this out there. I think we will. I think as we learned last year from parasite other countries make movies. They do they do. There are a lot of movies out there. All different kinds Well I want to ask some. I've been asking most most of my guests lately when we kick these things off. Is this movie banana split? Where where'd you find out about it? How did get on your radar? And what made you think that you would wanNA maybe talk about it here on the show? I like these questions. So where did I find out about it? I heard about it through my dear best there Josh Bell. My co-host from awesome movie year. And you know we talk about all types of movies but we both have an affinity for like these kind of. I guess you would call them. Like girl buddy films. You know you and I have talked about it in the past. Because we did the book smart episodes. Yeah I like buddy movies in general and I really like it when they have to well read and women because as a man. I think that's a a very you know in a writer. It's tougher right women for me than it is to ride men. You know but I love seeing fully fleshed out characters and of course. That was one of the problems I had with book. Smart is sure those two characters while they were flushed out. I didn't think anything around them was so the reason I wanted to do this. Episode is because this is like an anti book smart because I really loved this movie and we trash book smart. We kinda do so so I want. I want people to want to celebrate a a female buddy movie that That does all the things right that I think books are in wrong. I think that is exactly where we're kick it off and I also found out about it from Josh. I certainly was not on my radar. It's weird this movie. It's listed as a twenty eight teen movie but then it came out and some festivals I think in two thousand nineteen and now it's listed as a twenty twenty movie. I mean I don't know it's has a weird Shelf life I guess but I was glad to watch it though. I mean it like you said it is great and it it really does. I do think book smart. Is the the puzzle piece? We should kick it off with which I'm sure you know. We both have it on our list so we might as well. Just start with it. We really did give book smart a little bit of a trashing whereas most film podcasters and film critics seem to really really connect with books. Martin love it And both of us both of us really didn't buy into it. I did buy into it. I'll say a few things that I thought Were done really well in banana. Split which I don't know why it wouldn't get the same amount of attention. I guess you know the stars aren't as big or you know Livia Wild didn't directed it's but You know I was critical of alluvial. Thought she was showing off a lot of camera tricks. That didn't add to the story. It was like literally like hey look at this cool thing that I can do with the camera right whereas I thought this film the camera movements and the tricks that were used like told the style totally enhanced the movie. And you see that And the director. Benjamin Kazuki have you ever heard of him Dave? I had not now me neither but like I was thinking right from the bat when you see this kind of relationship start you know between Hannah Marx's character and the boyfriend that comes in between the two girls like they show this. This awesome like two year relationship in like two minutes. And it's really stylized then we see it again by the way this is his first film that he it is. I first feature seventy-three cinematographer credits. Though I am yeah. So that's maybe that's it. That's why he moved the camera so purposefully you know so. Yeah so I got. That was done. The style really added to it instead of didn't take me away from it and then they had that one kind of bff character. Ditto Luke Spencer Roberts Played Ben and whereas I thought that kind of roving character in book smart like was just like It's kind of a cool idea. But she never serves a purpose here. He serves a complete purpose and I did like that character and book smart. That was my favorite part of the movie. But at the same time I you're right didn't really serve a purpose other than some throwaway gags and stuff like that whereas here is an integral part of the story and and I think the main thing for me specifically is I just. I don't really enjoy the main relationship in book. Smart as much as I do here you know and I think that this this friendship really Kinda even though it comes from this weird place it comes from a very real feeling place yet so interesting because you know when we're putting puzzle pieces together like this one is tough in that. This is such an original take on basically Hannah marks and Liana Liberato play April and Clara and Hannah marks was dating Nick Dose Browse. They break up. And then clarice starts dating nick and then. April and clarice start having the secret friendship that they never tell nick about and it becomes like At one point a rivalry but this friendship is so much love between the two of them. Yeah to get really shines. These two are great. And I know we've seen a good amount of Hannah marks and I'm excited exceed. She gives you but I thought they were. Both both. The female leads were awesome. And Yeah this was reg Santa Marks Carotid too so today. You really really excited to see what these actors. What this creative team does next. Absolutely well I'm going to jump into another puzzle piece here. I think we'll probably end up bringing a book smart again at some point but I I think the main points of comparison there and why we liked this more than that. I think we just Kinda we kinda dug through there but something you mentioned though just a little bit ago. Is that whole opening where we go through the relationship in a few minutes and it reminded me a lot of the opening of up the Pixar movie and so I was GonNA use that for my next puzzle piece obviously a very different movie otherwise. But it's a really great condensed version of what a relationship that goes up and up and up into highs and highs of the best of what a relationship could be to the lows and lows of that break-up in the fallout and all that and I just thought it was really well done in a great way to open the movie. Just like I mean that's just such a classic moment in that movie. I didn't think of that but that's really good. I think that sequence in which I think is like eleven minutes or something Is a perfect eleven minutes of cinema. Like Oh God yeah. You can't get any better than that. What that did like how emotional is just watched up again recently with my daughter not. I'm pretty sure I was crying way. You know it's impossible not to. It's so perfect. It's that is a perfect piece of filmmaking. I really liked that as a puzzle piece. Dave awesome very good. Why don't we jump to your next one then? Okay so well so I knew we were. GonNa Talk About Book Smart so I didn't actually make it a puzzle piece is really what I was trying to do. Is Look at different relationships and differed friendships and different rivalries. And kinda go there so the first one I thought of was ghost world. Harry's why Goff's movie from maybe two thousand one with Thawra Burge Scarlett Johansson in their these Kinda Indie hipsters. Whose friendship is so specific. Just like kind of these characters. Friendship is so specific and then as thorough bursts gets more involved with Steve Shemeit's life and his romantic dealings leads to a little fall out. So you do have that kind of connection. But that's a great movie and it's probably I would say a lost classic at this time it got a lot of good publicity at an Oscar nomination for adapted screenplay by man. I gotta go back and Rewatch Ghost. World is what I'm telling you. I feel like ghost world would make a great cult classic episode for Two Thousand One season of movie for sure. I think you're right. Yeah and I'm glad you brought it up because that was actually the movie that I was telling you before we started. I have like four or five puzzle pieces but I wasn't sure about my fifth one. I haven't seen it in so long. It's a great movie but I didn't know if I really had enough to talk about on it but so I'm really glad you brought it up because it definitely did remind me of that that kind of a friendship very specific friendship. Yeah and I can just talk about anything for however long. It's kind of get. You're good to go. That's why you make talks. Tell me to fill time all bullshit. This nice all right so I'm to go with my next one and I'm GONNA JUMP TO TV for a minute for the TV show girls from HBO. I think again you know like I said the the biggest strength of this movie is the the realness of that friendship between these two girls and I feel like this. It's got a little bit of that. Feel of what they were doing on the show girls with the way that they were really kind of capturing the moment for for these kinds of women and the Some of it feels heightened at times but then when you kind of you know really dig into it. You're like no that actually probably is what these people would be like if they were if they were friends and they were thrust into this. Kind of a This kind of a situation and obstacles that are being thrown at them so I I thought that there is definitely a little bit of a comparison to be made there two girls. I think. That's a good pink and I have a love hate relationship with girls because I think it almost went like good season bad season. Good seasons bad season total homeland. What it was good. It was so good it was bad it was so bad there was no in between where that that show was either greater horrible. So yeah but you have this. The mark seems like she could be the type of Creator who could create the next interrelation of something like that right. I totally see that. Yeah absolutely it. You said you've seen Hannah Marsh before. I had actually seen her before. I don't think in anything. We should just looks familiar. I don't know yeah. Well you're the worst you know that that. Tv show was kind of a prickly acclaimed and shadow. She just she's she's good though an awkward. That's right or from so. Yeah Yeah for sure. Well What do you got for your next piece? Alright I'm GONNA go the opposite way on this one. I WanNa talk about a not that these two really battled over the love of someone but they had a respect for each other while still having some type of romantic rivalry you down. Sure and that to me. The best version of that is rushmore forever. Because Mr Bloom Max Fisher respect each other so much that they heighten their war on to get the object of their affection to those unbeknownst to humanity before before had film so I think that's one of the more interesting versions of I don't even want to call it a love triangle. I want to call it like a battle. Sure and the complications that come along with him because their friendship started first and then it became a situation. And there's just there's so many complications. So Rushmore my second piece of the puzzle love it and that's a great piece and yeah I I. I love the idea of this. It's not quite just a love triangle. I mean they. They have to settle these rules. They have to. They're always on the verge of possibly throwing off their friendship because of this whole situation but but they persist because there's that love they're like we were talking about earlier. I Yeah we've talked. I hope it's not one of your puzzle pieces because I know we've done it before but and we did on awesome movie. You're also a super bad but that that relationship between Sarah Joan L. is the backbone. It's what makes that movie so lovable. I feel like these two did such a great job Hannah marks and and her name is escaping me even mentioned it earlier. Yuliana Liberty Liberati that's right. Yeah Yeah They did such a great job of establishing that bond that they were able to play by the rules and God trips together and even you know kind of brought subjects that they weren't supposed to and let it go so Yeah Yeah it was great. Absolutely well I'll jump to my next piece then which is a movie. I absolutely loved from a few years ago. Ingrid goes West And I think the idea of these two young women forging a relationship. That's based on different kinds of secrets but basically on a secret and Ingrid's cases dark lie that she's you know be behind the scenes of the fact that she knows who this girl is. She's following her. And you know all the things that go into that crazy movie and in this case the fact that they have to hide this fact that they're both being friends behind the back of the boyfriend and I think they both go into some really great areas of comedy because of the the secret that their friendship is based on and it really adds to the scenarios that they're able to build out of the out of the relationship. I didn't like Ingrid Goes West to admit so. I thought that there were Like book smart so many unearned moments in there might be forgiving of Ingrid for all the Shit that she did for instance throughout the movie. But I can see what you're saying about creating a relationship under odd specific terms short. Yeah and I mean we could have a whole conversation about that ending I don't think it's quite as it seems but we'll save that for another time. I get what you're saying but let's not let's not divulge divulging. Let's let's keep the audience wondering there you go. I like that. What do you got for your next piece man? Let's talk about one of the all time. Great Female Buddy comedies. Romanian Michele's high school reunion Nice. We got a. We got a relationship. That's now ten years later and the haven't hit the goals they've wanted but they create this kind of world for themselves and when we're talking about style. This was very stylized film so between that kind of tone style comedy and female friendship. That was definitely on my list of a a really interesting movie. That again should be revisited. Here yeah absolutely I was just. I was just googling just to see what year it was. It was ninety seven but was there a sequel to that movie. I don't remember that there was a TV show right like Ravi Michelle in the beginning or something like that. Yeah Yeah Okay. I didn't even know that they made that interesting. Someone try to do like a live stage version of to at some point. That would make a lot of sense. I could totally see something like that happening. But yeah no absolutely great peace and another movie. I haven't seen in a million years but really really great so I will go with my next piece. Then which is The Paul Rudd. Jason Segel comedy. I love you man. Which is I? I feel like the reason why I wanted to bring this. One Up is because of how it explores that kind of awkwardness and the complications of making a friends. You know as an adult basically and I mean there are still high. School seniors are getting ready to go off to college in in In Banana Split. But they're still basically past that age where it's easy to make a new friend and so I just thought that it kind of approaches that same kind of struggle of already. This formed person. I already am who I am. I have all these other friends and to bring someone new into your life into your mix. I thought it does that in a in a really great way. And there's so much so much fun to be to be found in that kind of a situation. Yeah that was a great movie. I haven't watched it since it came out. But that's a that's a good pick that a that just I wouldn't have thought about. I really liked that. And then you know can I make another comparison About these two movies. Sure so one thing that I didn't really love about banana. Split was the Had a Marxist younger sisters thirteen. She's just a foul mouth little heathen who talks about wanting to Banger sisters boyfriend and Mariam and all that as opposed to J. K. Simmons Character as the Supportive Dad and I love you man where East Sandberg like. He's confirmed to get all the cock that he can always still open and supportive about it. It's it's an interesting play on two different characters in that realm of open sexual nece sexuality. I guess I feel like they're both pretty great characters but I'll take them both down. No Man Jacobson though. We've seen the like young boy young girl like with a filthy mouth before and I don't know I thought everything else was so real banana split that I was just like me. That character doesn't doing for Gotcha. Yeah I love the comparison. I think that's a very good friendship. Movie Awesome Well. Do you got next. I'M GONNA go with the most fucked up friendship movie of all time. Okay Oh boy and again. I'm hearkening back to the ninety s Neil abuse in the company of men. You ever see this movie. I have not. It's about two male co worker slash friends who get so fed up with the opposite sex that they decide to Torment a death. Butte female coworker by dating her and really just mind fucking her the whole time. Wow and if an is a really ballsy gutsy movie. I wonder if it could play today. Yeah that sounds a bit rough but it sounds kinda great though it sounds an eighteen it was and like and I thought it was going to be like this amazing odd tour and you know he did some other things shave things. This and that and Mike more known as a playwright dinner director now but Yeah I don't know what we're talking about friendships based out of Romantic entanglements in this one was really based on. This is the first the first movie. I think Aaron Eckhart. Any of US really assignment and like I think he's a really good actor who doesn't really get enough credit a lot of the time. Yeah he KINDA HE KINDA DISAPPEARED. Lately is not really anything ever never see him. I tried to bring some. You know some stuff that maybe we haven't seen before to these as a lot of people haven't seen in I. I recommend the company men and that might be a good one for us to dissect a future episode. That is true. That could be a good one. I'm actually very interested in watching this. It sounds great. I could tell by What I was explaining the plot to you how shocking it sound like wow. This is not like something I've I've seen before and that is what I like to see. It's goes there man? It really goes there well. I I'm out of puzzle pieces I had goes for all of my list. So do you have one other one or yet I have one other one and then one from a past episode like to bring up again. Sure let's let's go on. My last one was one of the great surprises. I saw in the past few years as a comedy that I didn't think was funny at all. And it's so delightful and funny and it just works like I think the heart of it works and it's based on the friendship of a female main characters which is blockers. I loved blockers. Blockers was so much better than I would've expected it was very fun. Yeah so and it's about these The screw of female High School female students who were trying to all lose their virginity on Prom night and their parents have to go out and stop them but they all kind of find their own. The female leads all find their own truths you know one has an x one does and Blah Blah Blah. You figure it out but I really liked the journeys and the endings that they all came do like they all just be like now. Sex is bad or yeah great. Sexist great you know like the all went on there correct journeys I think. Yeah for sure. Blockers and banana split. They share on the common even though BANANA SPLIT. More of like an indie comedy really and blockers. More of that mainstream studio comedy. The both are things that don't get made too much now because they just don't seem to do very well. It's like you either get these very very very cheap comedies or you get marvel movies with a lot of jokes in them. You know yeah. I don't consider marvel movies comedies although exactly closest one but yeah I mean also I think that society is still uncomfortable with females of all ages owning their sexuality and especially females in high school. You know so. I think that that was the tight rope. That bloggers had walk so for sure for sure. So you said you had one other thing you wanted to mention. Yeah I did and we talked about it and I think Josh is talked about a two which is probably my all time. Favorite female buddy movie We talked about it on book smart which was Fort. Tilden have you shared Dave? I have not. It's it's literally on my list of movies to watch. I have a list and it's on it. I love it so much I dig. It's may not just a great quote unquote female buddy comedy. But just a great buddy comedy a great movie about two Millennia home in Brooklyn who can't get their lives together and everything becomes so much bigger and it has to be also. I would recommend People who did four tilt into which also get fit into this Did the Great TV show search party for two seasons on TBS which Kinda deals with these relationships and a lot of that. Our friendship based in so. Yeah that that I just wanted to bring that up again because I champion that film whenever I can. It makes sense speaking of Fort. Tilden a movie. That I'm pretty sure was uses a puzzle piece on the episode. Never going back which is quite different but I mean it still has a very you know fun very real feeling kind of relationship at the middle of millennial women yeah I think so and then I know. They're on my list which which I haven't watched but our Josh told us about his This little weird French Canadian movie called. Slut in a good way which is again about three young women and their relationships and it's probably everything that yoga hoses should have been. But as we all know Kevin Smith can be good movies anymore. I think when we start talking about Yoga hosmer's that's the time to wrap it up So let's do the finished puzzle. Then we'll get into any closing thoughts. The finished puzzle for Banana. Split includes book smart of course as well super bad up ghost world. Girls Rushmore Ingrid Goes West. Romeo Michele's high school reunion. I love you. Man in the company of men blockers Fort Tilden Search Party and never going back at all those in there as well so I think we pretty much covered it. Do you have any like closing thoughts about the movie that you WanNa do. up there. I think this is one. That's gone under the radar. Should've been a bigger hit. But I mean I get it. They're not big stars or whatnot. I don't know why it hasn't gotten more acclaimed but I These are the Fun Hidden. Gems. You can find. You know that are worth seeking out. Yeah and and I would just add onto that and I don't WanNa pile on our our book smart criticism which everybody knows much to the two of US didn't like it but I really feel like this is the movie that should have gotten all the buzz. You know the zoo a better such a better movie funnier movie and great performances and I hope I hope people who apparently loved books Marcus. There's a lot of people out there who did Will seek this movie out because it is definitely something to watch. It's it's great. So Jason Do you have another movie you watch recently? You'd like to Recommend Orleans give you. I'll give you some. I got some that. I watched recently. That like I think is so below the radar and I was just like it's so good and not in the way that you expect. Hey how do you feel about Super Troopers Dave? I love super troopers cool so broken lizard. That's how most people know or came to know of the broken Lizard Comedy Troupe members. You're yeah have you ever seen the movie they made before that I own it and have never watched it gave? I watched puddle cruiser about a week ago. And it's not as broad or Wacky as what we've come to expect from the broken Lizard's troop but it it's one of these really good ninety s college movies that are based in reality but also funny. What a delightful little bill I taught i. It's great I maybe I have to finally frigging watch this movie. It's it's sitting on my shelf and just never around to it. So that's going to have had let me know what you think but. I think you know we all want to be completed. Sir of our major figures. GotTa Watch every Scorsese every Al Spike Lee and and every broken Lizard's movie but yeah I think this is This this is a really good piece. They did a really good job. And you know not all of it Works perfectly but you can see that. The talents there for What the future held for them for sure. Sure well right on man. Why don't you tell some people about awesome movie year? And what else you got going on. Yeah if you haven't heard as we've mentioned I guess he's like our I mean really. We've given him too. Many shouts on this show already but film critic Josh Bell Myself and Dave produces it also is a valuable member of the conversation each season we break down a year as to why it was an awesome movie year. We are currently in season four. We've already completed nine hundred ninety. Four two thousand seven nine hundred eighty nine in our in nineteen ninety-six and each episode focuses on a different film and a different like categorization of the that from so. We all always do the best picture winner. You know. We'll always choose a box office bomb or a foreign film And And will always choose like a cult classic so some of them like our picked for us like you know the bags. Best Picture. You know big box office. Hit that some of them. We each have a personal choice in their The cult classics Become Very Fun. As anyone who listened to gleaming the cube can tell you we disagree on a lot of things which I think is important. Absolutely yeah now. I'm having a great time with this new season of it and and I even get my own pick nowadays. Don't I earned buddy? We're glad we're glad so I WOULD. I would say We would love that feedback on it and we're happy with how it's growing and we appreciate that. So that's our other little venture here right What about your Comedy STUFF. What do you got going on their them in? Quarantine Dave. I'm actually I don't even know if I should say I as you know where. I'm trying to write a movie that we could film all in quarantine which is was the toughest idea that I can think of. And now we're seeing good pieces of art come out in quarantine with SNL and the parks and Rec Special. The other night so yeah.

Oh right joining me today. Come back to the show I know for him. It feels like it's been forever. It's our good Buddy Jason Harris from awesome movie, or how's it going? Hey, dave, doing fine. Guys just chill out. I know you're sending a lot of hate mail. Dave for not having on, but but he's trying you know. Let's give them a chance. So how are you sit up email filters to block it all out because otherwise I wouldn't be missing my mailing lists. I'm doing all right I'm doing good. I am excited to talk about this movie. I think it's going to be a really fun to talk about. Palm Springs a a lonely island. Classics Feature One of the many classics from the island probably. You Know I. do like this lonely island classics. Maybe we'll, we'll move more into that realm of weird strange indies, and maybe you have some other lonely island. Pictures on your list here I. Don't know for your your puzzle pieces Dave possibly I guess we'll see as we get into, but you know before we start getting into pieces, I do want to ask you I've been asking my guests lately it's. It's kind of a new thing. What made them want to cover this one with me, I? Obviously, it's being a comedy. I know your big comedy guy? Is that the main thing that stood out with you for this one is being lonely island and all that I don't think it was that I think it comedies, part of it but I do like this like resurgence of Rom coms or seeing on streamers. I know Dave how we all we all know how you feel about the streamers, but look romantic comedies at a more. Let's say not even an independent level, but at a lower budget level even in mainstream seems to have died a few years ago and then major comebacks with Hulu and Netflix and I'm so glad there's John. revived because I think that's where stuff that we grew up with stuff like bef- before sunrise stuff like that that that means so much to our development is movie fans. That's where these things would live now so. I'm I'm really excited that? This genre has really kind of exploded on the streamers. I think that makes a lot of sense. Yeah, while I'M NOT GONNA. Get into the fact that I think the majority of the romantic comedies on streaming I've seen. Have you know left a little bit to be desired? Still? This is one of the good ones foreshore and. I think get into some puzzle pieces and we might as well just to get it out of the way. Let's just go with the groundhogs day and. Talk about that for a second. That's the end of my list. Okay, we're done finished. scrounge deep of all the time loop movies. Probably is the best one like you know. A lot of people consider it a perfect movie. Scripts did whole breakdown on it. If you ever listen to that podcast, which is a great for screenwriters but yeah, I mean that's Bill Murray at his best right, and just reliving that day, and all the things that come with it, and you know when he has the knowledge that he's going to be reliving the day the way he replays. Ahead Dade Ryerson. Classic. Is that stuff? Yeah, no, it's it's. It's the best of the genre right I mean that's. The ideal time loop comedy and I mean I watched it again a few years ago and it's still holds up. It's great. It's unavoidable to talk about when you're talking about any time loop movie like really like Whether whether the movie leans into the comedy, the Romance, the horror or whatever it is, that's always gonNA. Come up in one of these kind of movies because it really did just kind of I. Don't know if it came up with that. I'm sure there's probably something that preceded it, but it certainly perfected it if it didn't come up with on its own. On my pieces. I have an older film that I don't even know if you've ever seen, but it's. It's more time travel than time loop, but yes I agree with you. That groundhog is the ideal time loop movie, and and honestly like. Just awesome comedy movie. It's a great deal. The Absolute Alzheimer for sure if we ever get to ninety three on. Awesome movie. I'm sure we'll be doing it. I think so I think that would be one even if we didn't have any I mean that might be your personal or minor, whoever, but that would be one that like? We did in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, and we kind of Said Hey, are we missing anything seminal from the year? And we and we said do the right thing. We have to cover I. think that's how much groundhog day means to the comedy genre. For sure well, what? What do you got for your next puzzle piece I? Mean since I already alluded to let me go with a nineteen sixty two French film. That wasn't really feature, but wasn't necessarily a short. It's Kinda in between. If. You've studied film history. You might have seen it in class or whatever, but it's a seminal film in regards to filmmaking Christopher Markers Lajja Tae. You've seen twelve monkeys. That's what twelve monkeys based on and I think it's I want to even call it pro French new wave like right before the French wave broke big, but it's dislike very dark, bleak desolate. Apocalyptic Tale after World War three, and like the government is trying to work on time travel, and they send this prisoner back and forth throughout time, and he has a romance in the past, and then they're gonNA. Kill him in the present and the future. People say they're going to save them like. There are all these kind of interesting pieces that go along with it. It's an amazing movie, and it's all stills and narrated over stills, but But yeah like you know the the way that Palm Springs without. Spoiling it you, you might see some creatures from the past in there. You know and everything and. They talk about the quantum physics of if of time travel, and and how one would escape it so I i. don't think you could talk about any time. Travel movies without without going all the way back to Lajja Tae. Guessing, you haven't seen it I have not seen it. No, it sounds much heavier in terms. To say the least, but but yeah, it sounds like it like that. That's where it came from the time. Travel the time loop kind of kind of idea. Yeah, it's heavy. It's definitely not a ROM COM buddy, but there is there are romantic elements in there, and it's just an amazing film, and like I haven't looked up what it's available on, but. It's totally I highly recommend it. Well, I, only have one other time loop movie on my list. Otherwise I was going to shy away from loop movies I did want to bring up happy death day to you specifically the sequel because and you know spoiler for everything we talk about on this show. We will be getting into spoilers, but in order to to escape the loop are our main character in this movie Sarah she ends. Ends up using her time her unlimited time to learn physics and come up with a plan to get out of the loop, and that is kind of what happens in happy. Did they to you as well where our main character decides to go on a big studying montage to learn physics and figure out some kind of plan I mean if you're gonNA, steal steal from the best baby. I never saw happy. But I know it's Scott I know people like it so. I guess there are how many other ways can you break a time loop right there? Yeah, in this movie like you said You talked about groundhog's Day. You have to live the perfect day or What is it so yeah, you're going to be re repeating tropes in their exactly. There's no way to escape it you either. It's one of the other really when it comes down to it. But what do you have your next piece? Okay, Dave I'm surprised. This isn't on your list because I know you're such a fan of his, but. Ryan Johnson's looper. I considered including it, but I did not, but absolutely one of the great looping movies and I think that's why. I put it on their, not necessarily because it reminded me. Anything, you know other than time cop which Jean Claude van Damme, but. which is not on the list, but should be on every list for any type of movie, but no, I put loop around there because of all the time movies. In, the last decade. That's probably my favorite. And Yeah I think like probably I know Joseph Gordon Levitt and Bruce Willis have done a lot of stuff since then but like. was at the height for both of them. I kind of feel like it was, and he kind of disappeared for a while, Joseph Gordon Levitt after that until seventy, five hundred, which was our last week's episode. I yeah, no and I think another. Another good comparison to looper is the fact that both movies kind of exist in a way where they're already assuming we know at a time loop movie is like they just jump right in without feeling the need to like. Fully, fully explain it like they can kind of have a little bit of a shorthand involved. I think, that's a good point, and I kinda liked the way they handle it in palm springs where Andy Sandberg Characters explaining to the Sarah Character. The you mentioned like. It's one of those time loop things. There's no way out of it and so this is A. Type of thing so I have looper I agree with you I didn't do all time loop movies I. Do have a couple of other time. Luby's things on there, but but I'm glad yours is an all time loop stuff so that that's my second piece. They're awesome well. I'll go to my next piece and this one really has a lot more to do with the Andy Sandberg Character Himself Niles From living in this time loop for we don't know how long, but it seems like it's been many many years possibly decades. He has developed a kind of a a happy go lucky version of nihilism, where he just doesn't really seem to care about anything anymore. Which I find kind of endearing and reminded me of a particular line of from Mike Judge's movie office space where the the the one co worker asks our main character. What did he do this week and he didn't come into work. And says I did nothing I did absolutely nothing, and it was everything that I thought it could be I think that line encapsulates. The feeling of this character, who has just resigned himself to a life of just hanging out and doing nothing and being okay with that and I love that I mean I love office space I'm going to disagree with you on this one. Though because does do different things on each day whether it's trying to mess up the wedding speech or make the perfect wedding speech and we know. He slept with all these women. He's resigned himself that. That he's not getting out of this time loop, but he does do different things on. He never does nothing as a matter of fact well, I feel like we're catching up with him at the point where he's kind of for the most part lost interest in that stuff, and maybe he'll throw in a little, a little odd day here and there, but for the most part I think he just sits around and drinks all right all. We're going to agree to disagree on there so okay. I have a TV show that I. I wanted to recommend and I think it's one of the best shows out probably last year, and it is the one time TV show I had on their which is Russian Doll Natasha Leeann show on net flicks, and man? They do a great job in like really exploring this time lube genre, and all the things that could go right and wrong and I know they're gonNA. Make another season, but if they didn't that would have been fine because. Because it has a perfect ending, and it's almost like a perfect show like they did such a good job like I'm clearly excited to see what they're gonNA do again, but had they never done anymore. that would have been fine. Have you watched Russian doll I? Haven't? I always wanted to I love Natasha Leona I've heard great things about it strangely enough I didn't even know it was a time loop show until I was reading reviews of Palm, springs and they brought it up. I had no idea what it was about well interesting. Point that. My my awesome movie. Your Co Host Josh. Bell told me when we were talking about. Springs. Did you know that the original script had no time loop in there? I actually did see that I saw that. His main inspiration in the first draft was leaving Las Vegas Right, which could have been well which I guess if you're just going for like a drunk guy who's trying to throw away. Which is kind of what you saying on the on your last pick. They're also you know in office spaces remnants right, so yeah, so maybe that's what makes in a lonely island classic. Let's take this calm and timely. Brew there you go. Nice and Nice Way to to look at it. Hey, watch Russian doll, though it's great I should I absolutely should all right I'll go to my next piece and this one is a. kind of a darker piece. It's a two thousand sixteen kind of high-concept. Called passengers. Did you see this movie? That's the Jennifer Lawrence Chris Pratt one. That's I haven't but I know. It has its developing a cult following right? Yeah, I mean I don't need to spoil the specific reason why I'm using this as a puppies, but what I will say, though is the idea of this high concept, sci fi based idea and just thought that perhaps the main character is giving the other character, the love interest all of the information that they don't have I think. Think it kind of sets things up in a very creepy way. If you think about it too much and don't go into it as a romantic comedy, if you of let your mind drift to all the things that maybe he's leaving out, is where it Kinda gets a little bit creepy, and that was I feel in in a weird way was was a complaint with passengers. Whereas with Palm Springs I feel like is almost something that people are enjoying about the movie in a way. I think that's fair and I, think I know what you're talking about. In the passengers move in because I've seen maybe parts of it or discussed it before but I. do think one thing that you're touching on in Palm Springs, which is Kinda funny when I watched it. We watch like the first forty five minutes then took a little break. Because you know that's how old people do things even though I'm not old, I watch movies like an old person. I'm just middle aged, guess but it's very interesting, because almost broke it directly, and like the whole first half of the movie is like okay. We've set it up and now we're in the action, and then like once you come back like literally at that mid point, it's like okay. Here's eighty things that are going to happen in a row that just heightened heightened heightened heightened heightened in the second half of the movie, and they really really capture a momentum of stacking. and. And it works, and if it didn't work, the movie crumbles right but. Yeah. There's so much world that they build up in that one location in the small amount of characters, it's it's it's very cool. Very cool structure for movie really. Really put it together really well I think. So what do you got for your next piece? Okay I got one more of the time travel type things, and then we're GONNA move on from that, but. I put this one on there because it's so weird. It's Shane Caruth Primer. Okay do you know it? I saw once a long long time ago. It's been forever I. Think if I watched it again. I still wouldn't understand it, but. I think it's like this kind of totally average to WHO figures out how to time travel in his garage us, and like not all the details are there, but like does move throughout time and space, and it's very weird and I think I just put it on there, because like if we're gonNA, deep dive this these pieces like. Let's pick something super offbeat and see where that goes, so Shaneco Ruth's primer. Would watch it again. Probably still wouldn't understand it right. Yeah, I like the idea Andy Sandberg's character. Kind has a grasp of what's going on, but not really you know it's like He. He has just enough to be able to kind of. Fill in a few blanks for his new friends, but that's about it right. He accepts it, but doesn't really ever do anything to change it. Yeah. I feel like how I would be probably. Well I got one more piece. And this one little bit kind of connects mostly to the ending I think, but but to to the the love story itself. And that is the Michelle Gandhi Film Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind and the idea that these two characters they know from their time in this loop that they're going to continue to get on each other's nerves and drive each other crazy, but they're going to just continue anyway because they like each other. Is there's a huge parallel to the ending of Eternal Sunshine of spotless mind and other. Sifi romantic comedy kind of thing, even though it's much darker than that, but. We're left in a place where these people have been through so much, but there's such a connection there that they're. They're going to try again. You know I Love that movie right, but and if you don't, then you check yourself right, but that ending is interesting because. I think when you compare it. You know like it's this acceptance of. An inevitable failure and in Palm Springs. We don't know that the failure is going to be inevitable, but we know they need to do something and they need to do it together, so I think that's a good. That's an interesting one could could pick dave that inevitable failure comes from the Charlie Kaufman of the story. Did you finish? His Book Dave I'm about four hundred pages in right now and it's it's insane. I I'm loving it. Real surprise real surprise. So got next, so that was your last one. Yes, okay, I'll run off a few things then. Okay, so one thing I wanted to do was kind of think of Andy Sandberg and. He's not a big movie star. He's a big TV star, but he's done some cool movies right so one I wanted to throw out. There was another kind of indie Rom com piece that he did what Rashida Jones Jesse and Celeste forever which is cool movie where they're like best friends, and then they always talk about dating, maybe they are. They used to be a couple I haven't seen in a long time but I think they used to be a couple stayed? Best friends broke up and then you know, but still stayed best friends, and then he kind of. he gets his new girlfriend pregnant. In that changes. Everything you know and I liked this movie a lot and I love that a lot of it is from her point of view so. Recommend that movie I find it interesting that he seems to be pretty interested. In like these kind of traditional genres, the ROM coms the like like just silly like broad comedies and stuff like that versus going as weird as maybe lonely island would suggest. I think what they're doing is trying to like chip away at the genre and find a different way in or different way to present it and you know none of them are quote unquote link really traditional Rom coms right in this one were time looping in the one. I just mentioned it's A. A buddy movie that dealt with a romance, and now it's moving that life so but if we were going to pick something traditional I thought of. The, if I'm not mistaken, was J.. K. Simmons and Andy Sandberg were both in I. Love You man movie with Jason. segel correct, that's right I think you're right. I think they were both in yeah. We're Simmons Played His dad and Andy. Shamburg was the gay brother. And Simmons was very very supportive in wanting his son to let his frequent fly so to speak so. This is a treasure man. He really is yeah. He is, and I love that movie so those a quick one that I wanted to bring up just because those two work together. I think for sure, but I do have one more piece like big piece that we talk about and I think I mentioned it on our top ten lists at the end of last year. or the year before who who knows time like a loop has all run together nowadays. Yeah, nothing makes sense anymore. So at the beginning of the episode. You asked me my interest I said. I was so happy that the RAM com. Has Come back so heavily on streamers, and you had said that some of them leave something to be desired, which is fine, but one of them. That I think is a home run is the Hulu movie plus one which is a great romantic comedy that all takes place at weddings. It's about two characters always end up with the same weddings at. At the same invite, so they say well. Why don't we just beach others dates because finding a data so difficult than they're always pay to the asset these weddings so now we see this whole progression of their relationship from friendship to romance to break up to you can probably figure out how it ends, but it all takes place at different weddings over. A year long period plus wine awesome movie. Could be awesome movie, year. Yeah, I still haven't seen it, but it sounded really fun, and it's kind of funny that that whole structure of going all the different weddings kind of lends itself so much to the time loop structure of this movie. Yeah, yeah, this one. They just go to the same one each time right right. Yes, but no I love I love that structure I love the idea of a structure where you're really only seeing. Okay. Now we're at an event and we're not going to know everything that happened to these characters until the next event and you have to fill in some of the blanks, because what you're seeing is just how they're acting. In regards to each other, so you're filling in you. Know was a good few weeks a bad few weeks. They add whatever but dude. Go Watch plus get on Bro all right. I'm going to have to watch that for sure. All right, let's do the finish puzzle and we'll get into some closing. Thoughts here in Palm Springs. Finished puzzle includes. GROUNDHOG. Day Of course. Lajja today is. Yes Dave Your French is immaculate Thank you happy till you. looper office space Russian doll, Passengers Primer Eternal, sunshine of the spotless mind Jesse and Celeste forever I love you man plus one so that is our finished puzzle list of course, a lot of time loop movies in there a couple of. A bunch of romantic comedy I think this movie is really something special. I mean I it. To do something so original and unique with two very kind of tried and true John. Ras, and still make it stand out is is pretty impressive. This is something that's been a trend this year. This very strange movie year. It being a first time, director Max barbecue his first time doing a feature and we've been getting a lot of these great. First Time, features this year. which I think is great. We really and they're really kind of getting to showcase on the streamers, aren't they or the Vod's? Obviously, we know the situation with theaters, but. I think this would have been how they would have been showcased anyway like this is probably the future for these kind of first time filmmakers. And kind of getting those smaller more independent minded projects how there? WHAT REAL QUICK CORRECTION DAVE! It's Celeste and Jesse forever. That's on me I reversed it, not you. The heat's off you baby. You're absolutely fired from the show Jason. What are we going to do with you? I fixed my mistake. I feel like I should still be able to be on the show as if I can't just edit this and fix it for you. Well, Hey man! I took care of it anyway. This was a good one this was. One of those sundance movies that I was looking forward to seeing and we're in a time now. Where like it's? Like July tenth was the big on-demand released right. Maybe that will be a future of movie events as opposed to like you know. We covered Independence Day on the one thousand nine hundred six season of awesome movie, or and it was like you had to be there. July second right baby that maybe they'll just bombard us like. Oh! Four new stream releases on all these platforms the same day. You can kind of work up this excitement and that way for it. That's that's an interesting approach. Although when I'm presented with too many options sometimes I. Sit there and play on my phone instead, but that's just me and they're never gonNa make me happy if they'd earn open so well, Dave! at least you got to enjoy this movie and sorry that. Of all the people in the world clearly, you've suffered the most since the pandemic started because the movie theaters are an open. I'm picturing. Myself stuck in a time loop with you and how that would be. Well Jason Do. You have another movie. You watched recently during this pandemic that you'd like. Recommend to our listeners or we just doing movies. Are we doing any pieces of art? Dave I suppose you could do some other form of our. If you really really must okay because I have a movie. If you want me to do a movie, I'll save a piece of art for something else. What do you do both? Okay Okay so talking about the pandemic, and if you listen to awesome movie year, we do reference that I'm a huge Bruce springsteen fan a lot, but bruce springsteen has been doing these DJ sessions on e street radio that are incredible there like he's talking about like the mood of the country, the things that are affecting us and he's playing music that emotionally encapsulates those feelings whether it's you know the strife of the working man, not being able to your loved ones. The things you miss an in-between. He's just telling stories like as Bruce springsteen and. It's just like the most pleasurable like the best DJ sessions. I've ever heard on July fourth. I feel like He. They put out one. It was him a little steven and southside. Johnny and they did like a whole history of the Jersey shore rock sound with horns from, and it was like Oh you made a radio show specifically for me. How Nice! I know that's a really specific thing, but like what we're looking for our ways, artists can affect and present their art in this time, and you can tell this dude is just so hungry to be out there. Guess he's got hungry heart to get out there, and and just performed for like twenty thirty thousand people at a time, but like these really really as always found a way to connect with his audience in a really unique way. Speaking of artists, finding a way to connect with with their audience I'm planning on previewing my new music by David rose an album through a livestream while I clean my studio I'm GonNa do that probably next week, so do we watch you clean your studio while yeah, because I have no video content to go along with it, so it's just going to be me in the studio while you're listening to the new songs, so so let's get a few things here one. You didn't acknowledge any of the art that I just had mentioned brought to. You. Know I love the boss I think that sounds amazing. To like. I mean. Is this going to be an only fans thing? Do we have to pay? I've. To do so if I can figure out how to set up an account Three. You're. Okay. I support it go for. All Right? What's the movie you want to recommend? About a movie likely okay I just watched this the other day yesterday just came out on Netflix. Called a kid from Coney Island. If you're basketball fan, it's about Stefan Marberry and it's so specific to how important basketball culture is to New, York City. That it's really interesting and the way they tell it is really interesting and Stefan Marberry. Story is crazy like I don't know what you know about it, but I think you even if you're not a basketball fan like this kid was like one of these superstars in New York as a high schooler. Right which you know, Basketball Mecca and he goes CNBA gets this reputation as like a a bad team and a troublemaker. Troublemaker even know overall. He had a pretty good career, and then he's basically run out of the NBA, so he goes whatever I'm GonNa, go to China and play, and he win some championships. They build a statute. Oh, he's like A. He's the biggest thing in China like he? He had to go all the way to the other side of the world to like re-claim himself. You know so. It's really interesting and. What I look for the specificity and the point of view in documentaries, a lot of the time and I really felt like this really honed in on the importance of basketball and hip hop culture to New York in the nineties, and it just made me want to go down that wormhole and watch as much as I, could about those subjects that sounds really cool. It sounds like a really interesting story, really unique. But. Yeah, sounds great. Why don't you tell people wire? They could find awesome. Move Year and everything else here up cool. You're not going to give me a movie wreck backer. What I don I don't. I, don't do that. It's now works all right well. That's nice. Awesome.

Jojo Rabbit (Featuring Jason Harris)

"All right welcome to another episode of piecing it together the podcast where we take a look at a new movie and try to figure out what movies inspired it and today on the show we are taking a look at one that It came out in theaters quite a while ago. But it's now hitting vod. And I know a lot of people were wondering if we would ever cover this movie and here it is. We finally got it for you. It is take oh what. Td's Joe Joe Rabbit the movie about a kid and his imaginary Hitler Best Friend. Okay let me. Just say right at the top of the show and we'll get into this as we are Getting into the conversation more Which by the way is with Jason Harris from Awesome Movie Air to Great Conversation I was one hundred percent on board for this movie. I saw no problem. I know it's a little controversial about whether or not we should be joking around about Nazis. I'm fine with joking around about Nazis whether or not Hitler is a rape subject for for for this kind of satire. I think it's perfectly okay right and I know a lot of people had problems with it and then a lot of people had this in their top five movies of the year. Unfortunately I fall somewhere in the middle in which I have no problems with it. I just didn't think it was that good I don't think that it really. I don't know I just don't think it landed that well and we'll get into it more as we get into the conversation But I it was a bit of a disappointment for me and I know a lot of people were probably ardy screaming at me right now for not loving this movie but what can I do. It's just the way I felt about it so hopefully you don't hate me but if you do hate me you don't have to review piecing it together but if you do still enjoy the show. I'd love it. If you rate and review US ON APPLE PODCASTS IN PODGE. Heyzer of course follow us on social media at Piecing pod. Join the FACEBOOK group popcorn and puzzle pieces where we continue the conversation about all these movies that we talk about on the show and with that being said. Let's get into this conversation about Joe Rabbit All right today with this. We got Jason Harris again from awesome movie year. How's it going Jay's Doing well thank you to all the listeners who have been blowing dave up on all the forms of social media requesting demanding that. I come back to piecing together. That's true that's been happening like so much. You just you have no idea you joke. But it's true. Is it a movement or a revolution little of each Today we are talking about Joe Joe Rabbit from tyco at his name. Tyco TYCO yeah take. Td Yeah so Jason. Were you a big fan of this Guy Tiger? Have you seen a lot of his movies before or no? I just recently saw hunt for the wilder people in Love de movies. Amazing Yeah boy is. Incredible movie never saw boy. It's really really good. Those are the two that Kinda. Yeah that got me on the tiger train. What's funny is to most popular. Movies would be the door movie. Sure which I did not like I like that. What what we do in shadows which I also did not like which I still have not seen actually so that. What did we miss? Maybe one of his yeah. Oh Eagle River Shark. Yeah I saw that million years ago. Don't really remember it too. Well Yeah I do like them. I mean you know as we'll get into one of the pieces. He is very reminiscent of another filmmaker. I like Seattle. Say I think I know where that's going so one other thing before we get into some puzzle pieces? You are Jewish right. I am yeah. I've always thought so as a Jew. How did you feel going into this one? I mean there is some like stupid controversy about this. I never really thought there was any real controversy. I thought it was one of those. Kinda just Internet things that you Kinda fell. Yeah I don't worry about that I think you should. That's like saying like I mean you you once you put limits on comedy you've already ruined it. Yeah can't you have to let it play out? And if the comedy works then great and if not then you can be like. Oh what a stupid idea right. And it's not like this is the first time Nazis been joked about especially by Jews. You know and that's another one of my puzzle. Pieces me too. We're GONNA have. Some crossover is yeah. I think you should be able to joke about everything making Hitler. A sentimental imaginary best friend is tough but The way that Joe went on his journey I think was pretty effective to learn that sucks. Yeah which is an important lesson. Do we get in puzzle pieces. What do you got for your first one? My first puzzle piece is Leni. Riefenstahl's Nazi propaganda film. No that's not true. I was looking all the way back to their back to the thirties. To some good old Nazi propaganda. And I'm not going to do my first puzzle pieces every wes Anderson movie ever made but we can just say moves Moon Rise Kingdom. Because that's the one about two kids on a adventure in the Wilderness and whatnot but tiga definitely loves his framing like Wes Anderson or is pacing his giant. Slo Mo set pieces to some cool music like wes Anderson's quirkiness. Yeah so I'm going to go moon rise kingdom which is one of my favorite movies and this is a good movie. This is not one of my favorite movies. Sure and I. I think we might have talked about this before I did not really love Moon Rise Kingdom. I think part of it comes from a kind of boring childhood. I just sat around and played video games mostly and did not have these kinds of adventures and stuff like that and so I guess I don't relate to it maybe that's always kind of what I thought though I don't I don't do whimsey. I guess yeah I don't know but I do love was Anderson and I totally see the influence. I mean Taika definitely seems to love some Wes Anderson style stuff going on also another one to add to that list is the the foreign covers of a classic POPs and David Bowie in this case. Yes and the Beatles. Yeah actually one of my I again. You just said that you liked this movie. Didn't love it. I also liked it in love it. Maybe my favorite part was opening it with the Beatles. Cover to Hitler montage. Does that was pretty hilarious. What started off on the right foot going on? It was definitely like insane right off the bat and you know moon rise when we talk about that you know he goes Joe. Joe Rabbit goes on this little Excursion with the Nazi youth into the woods. An adventurous weekend. And that's what that kind of reminded me of these Scout troops off on their trips their adventures in the wilderness. And why not? Yeah I was trying to think of some good examples. I don't know maybe through other puzzle pieces or might be one. But but especially Sam Rockwell's character is such like just like a goofy scout leader guy and I mean definitely moon rise kingdom fits the bill and that is very good. Yeah yeah a scout leader so the so we have to think of wacky scout leaders. They're they're out there. There's so many in history and I was just like drawn a blank. Outside of mooner asking I kept going back to that. Trying to think of it Volunteers Tom Hanks and John Candy maybe right. I don't know maybe I will go for my first puzzle piece with that the other one that we were kind of hinting at the beginning there. I'm assuming for you is the producers. I you could have done that. You could have done blazing saddles you. History of the world. Any Mel Brooks movie I think and the producers obviously make sense because of springtime frailer and the entire musical based around Nazis and everything. But I think nobody has done a better job of deflating the Nazis with satire than Mel Brooks. Yeah I completely agree I mean you just you put it perfectly. Just their you know deflating the Nazis. I mean really. I think that made such a joke out of what you know what the Nazis are and. I think that it would be nice if this movie did it more too. I mean his whole you know silly Hitler thing is you know it's fun. I in moments and then the other Nazis involved or also Kinda you know goofy and everything but nothing really bites as hard as you know what Mel Brooks did so long ago. Yeah I agree. I don't think there is effective as a parody is the The Mel Brooks stuff. Yeah I'd have to go back and watch the original producers again but those musical numbers were just like amazing. That actually make a good movie for us a movie. I think whenever we get to that ear. What year was the nineteen seventies? Maybe sixty nine or something. Yeah well the ID. Internet's yeah. I I don't do that for your show. Don't do it for my show for your next. Did a blazing saddles. So I'M GONNA move on to a little little lost gem from the nineties. I believe little film called. Drop Dead Fred. Remember that movie. We got three overlaps. Wow chose that is because it was started as a child with a very cartoonish imaginary. Best friend And tyke is Take on Adolf Hitler was cartoonish is well by the way quick. I Dave you know. I got a good amount of Hitler jokes in my repertoire. My Act they never really go well on our people forgetting Hitler was once I came off stage and I did the jokes and they bombed it in another commuting goes all you should have told them you were Jewish. I because only Jews can be mad at Hitler. That's right the rest. I mean you know the rest of the people like. Oh yeah man. That's too far. You took it to that guy. Tried to destroy the entire world. Shame on you makes me think that whole thing about history clasping important because if we forget history or doomed to repeat it like that that's really true because maybe people are forgetting about Hilter. It'd be like if we elected a president who a white supremacist. We would never do. That would never happen only in the movies. Yeah so but yeah but I mean there's There's a cadre history of movies that That have good fund imaginary best friends. You can name another instead of drop dead Fred. Oh boy well. What isn't it? Well you know I was almost going to say bill. Cosby's not really an imaginary best friend who just kind of the same kind of Wacky you know But yeah I mean th there are plenty. Dr- drop dead. Fred was the one that I went to immediately. When thinking about what are some good imaginary best friends and especially with this specific tone that he plays as. Yeah I. You know what I'm thinking of right now is inside out. The great animated movie where You know they have Mr Bing. Bong is the the girl's best friend as a little kid and that's right. I forgot about that. Let him go and he has and he wants her to let him go. And you know as opposed to Hitler who is trying to keep hold of Little Joe Joe here yeah even even Even Fun Hitler's Bad Hepburn. That's true that is true. Well I'll go with another puzzle piece in. This was the first one that I thought of back when I first saw the trailer. It for the most part. I still think it although I think a little bit less than what I kind of expected the movie to end up being and that South Park actually just the whole series you could if you want to stick to a movie and go to the bigger longer uncut movie but you know basically just the political satire just going over the top with a potentially offensive concept and then just you know hiding a really sweet story of kids in the middle of that kind of concept. I think again. South South Park's way more effective satire and read than team America. You could say sure you know 'cause they really don't hold back any punches. I'm not saying that this movie does. I'm just saying that this movie doesn't have the range the punching range of those movies and so I think those are more effective absolutely. Yeah and I. I do like though to me this movie and I I don't I don't think this is a bad thing necessarily but I went in expecting it to be really funny and it's funny in parts but I actually liked it more on the sweet side like when you're getting the relationship between Jo jo and the Jewish girl had an upstairs and stuff between him and his friends and stuff like that. I I really enjoyed that more in this movie and I just was South Park. There's always that undercurrent of you know. Just a sweet friendship thing going on. Yeah I think the most effective comedy was probably Joe. Joe's portly best friend was like a little eleven year old who gets recruited into the war as a soldier and he talks about how bad life is and how Hitler turns out he was a real bad guy who didn't tell us a lot of these things that he believed in and he was quite funny. That kid is a very Jewish character. you know as we know from boy and hunt for the wilder people take us good with those fat boys boys to well. Yeah I have a feeling. We'll see more of those in the future for maybe even the next ormeau any more and more things. Dave used to be Chubby jet. Now he's a charter member of his. Jim I'm still if that's what do you got for your next. I have a movie that when you were talking about. Was there controversy. Because they were making light of the Nazis right. I thought back to an excellent movie. Life is beautiful. Remember beneath won the Oscar. For Best Actor you know and I remember my grandparents who like I. They were movie lovers. They were very progressive. My grandfather was a comedian for sixty years. Very funny good humor. People I asked him alive is beautiful is one of the great touching movies I've ever seen in my life. I shore is. Did you guys like the movie? And they said we walked out. I said why is it? Well we don't think the Holocaust is something joke about. You know or wasn't funny to them but I can understand that because they grew up as while it was going on as Jews here in Brooklyn and dealt with a lot of anti-semitism. She's so life is beautiful. I think is a more effective comedy about World War. Two and Nazism than this movie is sure. Well yeah I mean I guess if anybody is going to be offended it's the generation actually went through it like physically went through it was. I found it funny that they had walked out on this movie. Raising was such a redeeming heartfelt story about the human spirit and that evil couldn't overcome the human spirit. Yeah no absolutely well. Yeah good puzzle piece for sure on. I have guess one more. We had a lot of overlap on this one so My last one. Another movie You know with a quote unquote creature. That's hiding in the house Set AMONGST BACKDROP OF WAR It's Pan's labyrinth. With of course the creatures under the house being the Jewish girl living upstairs in the walls of the House. Which of course is quite different. But it did you bitch. I'm allowed to make that connection. And you self hating Jew. You're saying Jewish girls are are creatures living under this there. Modell Toro monsters. How dare you Sir Yeah? I don't think that's what you meant but I understand what you're saying. Yes someone lives in your wall. How do you interact with them? Yes and why are they there? Yeah now we find out through the art of deer. Modell Toro and through Taiko. Itt however no American filmmakers seem to capture that that's an interesting observation there. Well I'm probably wrong. That's true well Do you have any idea? I've one more and okay. So in Joe Joe Rabbit Right. There's there is some battle sequences and you see Joe Joe Walking through the battlefield and this one very epic long shot and nobody does epic long shots. Better especially in wartime settings than Joe Wright and the film atonement with another World War Two movie but that had one of the most striking incredible longshots I've ever see of a of someone walking through the aftermath of a battlefield. Yeah didn't love that movie but I know what you're talking about. That shy was awesome absolutely Seems like that one thousand nine hundred nineteen can have some great shots. Yeah that's you mean the movie or the year the move about. Yes who but yeah no absolutely good puzzle visa. I the there were some great shots like that. I think the whole again. I think it's funny that this movie. It's sold as you know Hitler as Imaginary Friend. But all the best parts are happening outside of that real. Yeah I agree. That debt shockingly. Hitler was the worst part of spill really was. He wasn't as funny as I expected. Just kind of dragged it down a little down again Hitler. Hiller is always doing away joke. About how Hitler ruin that Mustache for the Jews because in like the twenties if you had that cool little mustache people it'd be like. Hey Charlie Chaplin Nineteen thirty nine if you have. They'd be like what fucked chaplain Hitler. Dammit Larry David did it on Curb your enthusiasm yeah not not not bad when you see a joke that you concept had also thought of by the likes of Ju- Larry David Nagel juice. He kind of is well. I will do the finished puzzle. Get into any last thoughts. We had about this movie Finished puzzle includes Moon Rise Kingdom. And of course everyone's Anderson Movie The producers and every Mel Brooks movie. Drop Dead Fred. South Park Life is beautiful. Pan's labyrinth and atonement Right off the bat as far as closing thoughts for this one You know in in jumping through these pieces we didn't really aside from Sam Rockwell briefly. We didn't really talk about any performances. But I mean I thought Thomasson Mackenzie was gray which she was what's it called Leave no trace. That's called yes. She was fantastic is amazing. Yeah yes yes so. It was good to see her again and I thought she did a great job with this a really funny movie. As Funny Role Scarlett Johansson was great as the Mom Scarlett. I mean she was awesome. Rebel Wilson has a few good. People are GonNa Complain. That Scarlett Johansson pleaded German because they like to complain when she wants to play anything else. That's not Scarlett Johansson. Yea I I don't know if German is on or off limits not quite sure only act as who you are from now on. That's where we are everyone. Yeah that is that. Is The kid playing. Joe Joe is good. I don't know. Do you have any other thoughts about it? I mean you know it. It is a provocative premise. Right it's based on a book. Isn't it or a story? I think it was a short story but what. What's interesting is the journey. The journey first of all. How do you make a little Nazi boy? A protagonist and then how do you have them learn enough about how bad his heroes art to realize that he should not be believing in who he believes in forgot. Rebel Wilson. Who's always funny thing but It's fine it's just like I don't know if it delivered. Maybe it was too sentimental. Maybe it needed to be a little more removed like wes Anderson Movies are one sure but yeah it's fine it's good it's just not when you hear the subject matter like what. Hack and then you see that opening sequence you talked about new like Yo and it's just it's it's. It's a fine movie. I think back to the puzzle because I don't have one but there's got to be a good movie about learning. The thing that you loved was shit you know. Yeah well I mean I think of American history x when I think of that comedy well American History. X is not a bad example of that. Yeah yeah so that on the list. All right yeah. That's that's the first when I think of but yeah I mean I. It's it's fine. Yeah the best. Yeah not the best but good good. I liked it. We like it better than we like Hitler. We definitely like this better than Hitler. And that's for sure. Not even one or two steps like a lot of steps. Pella better than Hitler yes. That's I can agree on. That is at the bottom of my he. He is not awesome. He would not make it on an awesome movie here. Well I mean what year would we be? We have to cover those films of Leni. Riefenstahl's seems did you read that name before this or is that like permanently. That's that's knowledge you. I mean I knew that she was a propaganda. Nazi film Dot. It would be a funny reference considering that you know. That's kind of the. The part of the controversy is making light of the short but yeah I don't like her either. Screw you Riefenstahl Riefenstahl. Well Jason I. Is there another movie? You saw recently like to recommend to our listeners. Another movie I saw recently that I would like to recommend to our listeners. Yeah I would dave okay. I went back and watched The first Noah Baumbach movie not too long ago kicking and screaming which is on Hulu Ben At such a pleasure. What a great film that is end. If we're going to plug a awesome movie here. We just covered Margot at the wedding. Yes on back set. Excellent film from two thousand seven. So it's been fun to do. Some rewatch of Noah Baumbach films kicking and screaming is very quintessential nineties angst filled. What am I gonNa do with my life now? The colleges over movie. But it's probably as good a movie that's been made on that subject. I need to watch it. I've never seen it. I do like Bomba films. I I really should watch it now. That's it's on it's on Hulu No. It's on Nice. And speaking of Awesome Veer. There's a marriage story screening happening tonight. And Your Co host did not get us into the screen. You see he's not going to either. How yes he did. Tell me nothing Josh. We're calling me well. Well why don't you tell people where they can find you and yes awesome?

Blinded By The Light (Featuring Jason Harris)

"<music> it all right woman to another episode of piecing together the podcast where we take a look at a new movie and try to figure out what movies inspired it and today on the show we are talking about blinded by the light a movie about how amazing bruce springsteen is well. It's not really about just that's about a bunch of other stuff too but it is for all intensive purposes. The bruce springsteen movie and i had a lot of fun with this one and a lot of fun with the conversation with jason harris who hasn't been on the show since last year but i have been producing his awesome move year podcast so we've done quite <hes> bit of podcasting together over the last year just not here on this show but we're getting back for another episode soon so it's always fun having him on so. Do you know i want to just say we're just getting to the end of august right now. We're about to enter september. August has been an awesome month for the podcast cast lots of growth lots of new subscribers lots of downloads and lots of new social media connections and all that and i just wanna thank you all who are out there listening to the the show we really are happy that you're out there and enjoying the show and <hes> yeah just want to say thank you if you have not you can go to our apple podcast page page and rate and review us five stars would be amazing but we want to hear what you think of the show. We wanna keep making it better for you. You also follow us on social media at piecing pod and join our facebook group popcorn and puzzle pieces so at that all said let's jump into this conversation about blinded by the light which should still be in theater so so if you haven't seen it yet go see it because not enough people are seeing it but we'll get into that conversation as well towards the end of this whole overall conversation. I'm saying the word conversation station a lot but you know what that's fine. Let's get into the conversation. Do we have got with us. Jason harris from awesome awesome movie. How's it going here on my own. I don't need to use the crutch of that longhaired freak. Josh bell my co-host. I i love him very much but this is me time gave me and you time me you and bruce mann. The boss probably would be me and bruce josh not a fan of course but god. I can't believe that that's hard to believe. He doesn't dislike sprees. This of course not with this podcast is about <hes> but yeah normally i'm. I heard with him on a awesome movie year but today baby we're getting deep into blinded by the light by the boss of course that would be the song long movie. We're not getting into the song we mentioned probably mentioned the song at some point <hes> yeah. We'll mentioned a bunch of songs this. This one was one. You signed up for a long time ago. You wanted to be my co-host for this episode. Obviously your big bruce springsteen fan <hes> did you. Did you ever expect for <hes> this to be the bruce springsteen movie though it was going to happen. Did i expect for it no but there's so many kind of books about bruce springsteen springsteen and how he's affected. People's lives documentaries that that it doesn't surprise me that you know this. This one happens to be about a pakistani imigran grin in working class england in the eighties and that's the that to bruce spoke to you know yeah sure. Why not you know that's that's the point of his music is that it speaks to so many people no matter what background you have just yearning for for more for something more yeah those universal like themes of his music or exactly what the movie is a vow and and i find it we'll get into as we get into some of the puzzle pieces and everything but the movie is about so much more than just you know bruce springsteen's as music i mean it absolutely can be read just about the music and then it could be just about him as a writer in connecting with other writers and it could be about you know one thing i noticed before even get into puzzle pieces. I'm looking at my pieces and i'm realizing i didn't even like touch on like the themes of racism in the country and how that parallels today and everything started there is that is one of the interesting things about men. How spot on is this movie from. That was you you know in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. What's going on today in america britain you so that's a sad state of affairs cheryl's. The more things change the more they stay the same now i was looking. I didn't put it as one of my puzzle pieces but something like this is england which goes over the schism of the skinhead music ah movement from like hey we're cool reggae guys to hey we're horrible nazis that that would have been a movie that would fit in that puzzle puzzle piece is sure absolutely well. Why don't we jump in some puzzle pieces. What do you got for your first one so look. There's a number of ways. I broke this down. <hes> <hes> one one thing i wanted to leave out where these jukebox musicals that are like super trendy right now but you mean rhapsody yesterday stuff like that where it's just like. Here's a story of an artist and we're back rounding it or most of the story through their music with them. Singing i may mention in a couple the only for specific reasons okay that's fair. I left those out because this isn't a story about bruce springsteen because i know that the the film maker who i'm gonna let you pronounce yeah gun render chadha. I don't know if you did it anyway. She specifically typically said like look. We're not trying to make that we're trying to make a story and we're going to have the music <hes> elevate story showing so with that. I had a movie british movie about a young fella who's trying to do better who also involves loves music and billy elliot one of my favorite films of all time. I love this movie. I'll cry at it every single time. Oh you're you're you're dead. Mom wrote you a note. Let's read it out loud so jason cried whoever's watching but you know that's the story of again a working class family dad. I'm trying to raise his kids in england where the economy has just crushed him and billy elliot has the talent of ballet l._a. And his much like the main character here billy. Elliott's family doesn't understand like hey what what is this. This is just a hobby of yours. Ryan shouldn't be doing this. You gotta get on with with work and everything so <hes> and then of course you know happy happy happy. Jason cries a plot hurry harare. That is a pretty good summation of billy elliot. I i'll admit i cry all the time i saw blinded by the light alone and i'm glad i did because i knew i was going to cry because i cried to preview because i'm such a huge fan and like if you use music effectively it the right way i cried so much during the day so yeah i was i was i was quite choked up through through especially the end of course but <hes> but yeah absolutely i can see why anybody would be crying through this movie <hes> but yeah absolutely billy elliot and that's a comparison i have seen you know <hes> listed tested before and it's absolutely makes total sense and yeah i mean just just just another another great movie on. I'm going to go with my first one and it. It may fall into that category. You're mentioning about like you know just music movies and whatnot <hes> but i i want to talk about it for a specific reason eddie and the cruisers yes eddie. The cruisers is totally a movie that i've seen many many times. No actually it is a star is born and i'm actually specifically talking about the new a star is born bradley cooper and lady gaga and the reason why though is not not for being a movie centered around music but for being a movie that so like like on ironically and unabashedly you know still speaks to the power of music and you know isn't embarrassed by that because it seems like we're in such a you know a world now where everybody is you know so embarrassed to to be you know like you know open about things in about the things that they love and all that kind of stuff and and a star is born looks at music like this powerful thing i mean there's even that line that that you know i it made me laugh a little bit but about <hes> you know music has seven notes. Life is what happens between those seven or something like that. You know and it's like it's so like you know cheesy but kinda. You know beautiful the same way and i don't think i don't think you. I don't think that counts as jukebox musical. That's again a story that tells its story with the usage of music to elevate as opposing to necessity necessarily like fill the gaps in sure right so i can you see that and i <hes> when you're talking about like unabashedly like love and power of musically. There's there's no one and i think that's one of the things that his fans appreciate who like really you know he. He always <hes> bruce springsteen says at the end of each concert or close to it. I'm just a prisoner a rock and roll all right. You're here to see the ministry the magic the majesty the mystery of rock and roll like he believes that at least in that moment rock and roll can save lives. Yes yeah so i can understand tackling something where music is essential like that yeah. I think that's great. You know. I mean we're everything. It has to be so freaking ironic. Nowadays you know and it's like it's it's kind of awesome to see something. It's refreshing like that you know but what do you got for your next puzzle next wine line it kind of another great movie and this one i chose because it is one coming of age story and to it takes place around rock and roll and three it takes place in the seventies which is when springsteen big which would be almost famous the classic classic cameron crowe movie which is really about cameron crowe who you know as a young reporter on the road and dealing with the rock and roll lifestyles and which a springsteen has famously avoided said he has had you because members of his band having you know so but the idea of what rock and roll means means as someone growing up and what rock and roll means as defining you from adolescence to adulthood you know and that's that's kind of why i chose this one and and that kind of fits javed's character here you know as he's going from like a community college to he's trying to get to like like <hes> major university and manchester and like escape and be something more so i thought that was was a good fit absolutely also deals with young writer you know learning learning to <hes> get into their craft and believe in their work but i yeah another movie kinda you know in that world of music you know i think a lot of our pieces are gonna exist in the world of music is probably a few like we'll get to that. Don't have to be music heavy sharia wpro. I think most of mine are but right off well. I will go with my next puzzle piece then which is another music movie but probably eddie and the cruisers to again. One of my favorite movies is actually the eminem movie eight eight mile because i thought of you know when java's is writing his poems and just pouring all of his emotions and his heartbreak in the difficulty difficulty of his family life and all that stuff into his his his lyrics and poems that he's writing and i i thought of b rabbit writing his <hes> his rhymes on the bus and all that stuff and just you know just every ounce of it just matters so much. You know you know it's funny is the was probably two thousand two you write the grammys of that year that was when springsteen was up for every award with the rising or the post nine eleven album that should have won every every award and eminem was out with you. Tell me which album i remember at the time i probably would have been marshall matters. I thought it was the one after but whatever slam him show yeah yeah yeah and then they both lost to norah jones and in retrospect. Are we still saying that. Come away with the was the best song best album album best best of that year and pretty damn good song yeah okay <hes>. Does it have the same residents now is rising which was the obama administration's rations on for eight years right but anyway so there's a story that they announced like whatever the album of the year the big one right and norah jones wins and springsteen and eminem stage and they just look at each other like what the fuck are you gonna do right so i think there's also this idea <hes> of what people in genre are supposed to be and what they're supposed to do. You know and both eminem and springsteen transcended those genres and broke many rules of what was going on turner. They exploded so oh yeah also. I guess i hadn't really thought of this but i also misunderstood in a lotta ways as well you know u._s._a. And stuff like that and what eminem was trying to do you know <hes> but yeah ab absolutely like totally two of the hugest artist i ever of their respective genres. So what do you got for your next one well. I am going to go with fun comedy for my next next one which is kind of what you were talking about about. The reason i chose this one is because the main character believes in rock and roll so much that i thought like it would be it would be unfortunate if we didn't include it so i picked school of rock because everything jack black dozen that film is related to his love of rock and roll and all of his failures and successes are based around that yeah absolutely i mean that that really kinda ties in with what i the same with a star is born as well yeah. It's like it just that that rock and roll can do for somebody's life you know it's it's awesome yeah yea rock and roll baby and roll yeah i love it and i love school of rock so well for my next puzzle piece. I was just as his genre just in general i was gonna talk about broadway musicals and just the whole when they break into song and stuff like that that i mean i looked at something like you know elton john's rocket man but it's kind of two new just in general like that musical thing of everybody breaking into song song and running and singing kind of dream sequences but it is happening within the world of the film kind of they're kind of my least favorite moments of this movie <music> but i did feel that they they certainly amped up to energy and i could see why they would want him. Include them especially for like a song like borna runs. The born to run montage was great. I thought maybe you know there's the thunder road montage which he's singing to the girl. He has a crush on tour and i don't think he captured the the necessary angst in that one thunder road is but hey man you know that that that's what's up. So what's the movie. No i guess if i had to like narrow down to eight movie i would've talked about rocket man. Even though it's too new but i was just thinking is more as like a pure bucket of of yeah well. I mean look if you wanna talk about that. Then what we should talk about is springsteen on broadway which as which i flew into new york for one day to you see that's amazing. I remember when you did that and i i would love to have the energy to do that. If i had the energy per se i won the lottery. You know it was impossible. W. tickets and then i won the lottery and my brother was able to go on one specific day and the deal was if we won the lottery and then could get tickets for that specific day. We would both do it so i flew in on a friday saw. The show saturday flew back on sunday and cried a lot at that show. I bet that must've been amazing. Well you know what was great about that was so we get there and i don't have an a._c._l. In my right leg so it's tough for me to sit like bent legged in space and this is an old broadway theatre where you're seeing springsteen in. It's like there's no way i could sit like where i was supposed to sit for two hours. I told the staff so they put me right next to the sound man and and literally there's always this thing that springsteen fan say they say whether it's two hundred or twenty thousand people you feel like he's talking directly to you right right so in this one i was next to the salman of top and like it was like i had to remind myself like oh there other people here because i had such purview is next to the salmon i thought like it was like me and springsteen and that's it for two and a half hours and now you can see that show springsteen on broadway on netflix so i think that might be a good good thing to track down for viewers yeah absolutely i do you know i actually because of my inability to just sit down on my couch and watch things i still haven't can watch that and also i said you have podcast viewers but you have listeners but you should watch it. You can watch an hour at a time you know and they should view my podcast. I will watch it next okay. This is one of my favorite movies again and i chose it because of the importance of working class britain and what music meant and how music came out of that scene and everything so i chose twenty four hour party people i love that movie steve coogan talking about the manchester scene from about seventy six to ninety two joy division and happy mondays and new order and all this stuff and it's just such such a dope movie like i highly recommend that to anyone who hasn't seen it and it really captures kind of like what england was and also how important jordan the music was to those working class communities the who people who needed an escape and people who founded escaped sure yeah no great great movie and also yeah i loved all the references to all the other music that was popular at the time and and really that's an interesting just thinking about this movie is made no mistake. It's a bruce springsteen movie but it's also it's also not says about these other themes and in the process i mean it's as much a movie about all the music of the time. It's just that this one character who is the main character is mostly focused numbers. They kind of make fun of the friend dan 'cause he's like since since the future and it's like censor dope you'd like since and the eighty s springsteen played whitson so i don't know why we we would be making fun of that. Yeah yeah it was it was yes definitely some like human league stuff in there her and then you know he he has friends leg billy joan like you know kind of funny 'cause those guys are such good friends now springsteen and billy joel but <hes> yeah they they do talk about music so much and then also you know javad comes to the realization when you know that his friends music wasn't good and then he's like well. Oh you're music is good because it speaks to you. The way music speaks to me and right right exactly yeah yeah. There's so many so many artists like i think of that like speak speak to me specifically but i mean springsteen absolutely is one of them so you know it's gonna purposes the weirdest one the weirdest one that speaks to me man. That's a a good question probably some weird industrial music or something like that like a frontier for two or something to do with yeah i time by the way just before moving on. I brenda this show. Chris greenock was talking about how like you know what must has to be like for for billy joel to be sitting in the theater when this preview plays and like everyone's laughing at me like i'll go rest on my hey you know hundreds of millions of dollars in the fact that i've sold out madison square garden for the last four years every month right you you know but they do. They also do that to springsteen here right like so this is when this is after born in the u._s._a. Exploded and tunnel of love was gonna be coming out and that kind of changed the direction and then he went solo after that in a lot of the kids like the college kids are like no one's listening to seattle. It's dad's music right yeah and when i started seeing spring seen on the reunion toward the union which was two thousand east reunion tori right i was i was twenty and i was clearly the youngest person or one of the youngest people in the crowd right yeah and what's funny as i thought that would be continuing right like as i got older well the whole audience would get all their and i'd still be one of the youngest but now if you go see him in the last few years like it's so many young mm people it's amazing. He's got a huge teenage and twentysomething fan base and a lot of that is because of bands like when people say i oh i don't like springsteen. How do you like arcade fire. Ya well then you like springs fire weekend. Then you like springsteen you know and it's like everyone from those two to taylor swift. You know like like springsteen whether it's the style of music or the songwriting right so it's like let's let's he's the boss man. Come miles is absolutely the boss. I'm gonna go with my next puzzle piece on this one definitely fits into that that jukebox thing and that is mama mia <hes> just but just just a big happy crowd pleaser of a movie centered around this music. You know mama mia. I would say okay is the type of music that springsteen built his whole career against in the seventies born to run darkness on the edge of town or the opposite of what abba was doing but to come full circle again. Here's another little springsteen fact right on the last tours of australia. He did cover staying alive live as much to bury give who is down there then berry give an his l._a. Shows like to repay. The favor was like well. Yeah i got you to boston. He covered. I'm on fire so it was kind of cool and everything but that has nothing to do with mama. Mia which i have no desire to see you know actually to be honest. I don't know if i've ever actually seen it in full but i've certainly seen it in pieces many times because people always seem to be watching it around me. You're just talking about how music makes you happy and you know can express certain things that maybe the spoken-word. Can't i get it. What do you got your next plus. You wanna talk about a movie where music is important when people believe in the music that they're performing. I'm going to go a a little further back in the early nineties to the irish soul rock movie the commitments which is a great movie. Have you ever seen seen it. I've never seen it now well. Let's watch it. We will be back after we watch. It's a great film and it's really about this irish very soul band who believes that they can make it big and they should in that their their soul. Music is essential to their lives so oh better than mama mia yeah. I imagine it sounds great. Though it's a it's a good movie yeah right on yeah. No i have not seen it it but <hes> i will go with my last puzzle piece actually <hes> and this one's kinda just a simple simple comparison but a lot of the times times when i'm covering just a just a straight up feel good movie which i do consider this to be a lot of people are saying yeah and i i i can understand where people wouldn't like a movie like this because of it being such a feel good movie but i mean how i loved it but <hes> i always looked to as little miss sunshine as a perfect example example of like that just kinda just you know just quirky like just lovable little movie you know and <hes> and i think a lot of the cues hughes the grinder chata again. I donald pronouncing that that she's taking in in structuring movie like this to be just such. A fun funds sweet little film. Is i think comes from that same kind of a place yeah. That's a great film. You know kind of a different film about family dynamics and everything but i guess you could also say like you know. There's there's a character in two two in there who wants to make it bigger than they are. Hey hey yeah fun movie. I like i mean look who's gonna complain about that exactly so i wanted to mention a few that i <music> at considered but didn't put on my list some coming of age ones i could've gone with lady bird spectacular now even bombeck movie movie kicking and screaming because of people trying to find their place in the world at such a young age then i was thinking could trainspotting beyond their because because of the idea of finding your place in this british society when you don't so but i'll tell you my last main one and then i do have a couple of other recommendations that should be watching last main one going back to ireland again one of my favorite. I think it was my favorite movie of two thousand thousand sixteen. John carney's sing street. I love that movie yeah and that is a feel-good movie and that is a movie about how'd you know kids forming abandoned seeing how far it could take them and shooting music videos and the importance of the eighties and what music videos meant at that point in time you know so i feel like i've mentioned a lot of good movies today and that that is just one of my favorite every movies yeah yeah. It's such a lovable movie. I i still like once better but that would be another one people would consider and showing no actually i was in ireland following springsteen at two thousand thirteen and i went to three shows of his in a row and the next show that he performed glenn hasn't heard performed with him so nice yeah yeah in great show well. Why don't i go down the finish puzzle list here here and then we'll get into some of those bonus ones you had and then any closing thoughts we have about the movie. <hes> finished puzzle includes billy elliot. A star is born almost was famous eight mile school of rock broadway musicals springsteen on broadway twenty four hour party people <hes> mama mia the commitments it's and little miss sunshine and sing street emmy also kind of touched on lady bird this spectacular now kicking and screaming in there so other than mama mia yes right. I will strike from the record just to make this a really good list of movies. Well we replace it with two to fricken awesome music documentaries if you like them and i thought this would be a perfect way to close because binding by the light like we said about a kid hid who's trying to find this place in the world trying to do something more trying to do something that people from his hand on his family don't understand right. Gotta get our young tramps like us baby. Maybe we were born to run right. <hes> the first one is <hes> wings on wheels the bruce springsteen documentary about porn to run in the making of a- and it's literally like he's like one thousand nine hundred seventy five. I was doing things that nobody really understood including myself but i knew i had to do them right. That was pretty much and those are so honest his western stars the new one's going to be getting a theatrical release because the ones he's put out have been so good. I has documentaries are just crazy so much care and cultivation and the archival footage mixed with the storytelling so i thought that one and then and then you could even argue that the promise the making of darkness on the edge of town which was the next one might even be better and that's it's saying something because like you know besides wings for wheels being awesome the <hes> the promise is all about how he had to go in a completely different direction action after every right so those are the two ties at bein was also out for the river. I don't think that one's as good as these. I you might <hes> i would definitely highly recommend those for any springsteen fan any music fan in any artists who feels like they need to be inspired of like oh damn down. You know if you're not gonna believe in yourself who is right one quick question. Did you read the book from the kid that it was based on. I didn't know i have read more than one springsteen book looting born to run his autobiographies amazing. Have you read it. I have the audio book have heard some of it but i haven't gotten a fan. I got to get that audio because i hear that's like one of the great audio of all time the born to run on me when i read it. It made me feel weird. I grew up in north jersey so i'm like kind of periphery around that and everything made me feel weirdly nostalgic for a time time and a place i didn't experience. That's an awesome thing yeah and it was so it's like it's playing like it's like magical realism or whatever yeah i've read read a number of of books based on the boston rock and roll and everything but his autobiography is pretty pretty monumental achievement. I'd say i kinda. I want to go back and read this book because it seems like it would be a great story like that. There's probably so much more to it but <hes> but yeah yeah absolutely it's overall you know great movie. I like liked to ally disappointing that it's not doing so well but hopefully it finds life on video. I think you're underestimating that because it was a fifteen million dollar budget around four million. The first week made four point five in the u._s. and canada. It's about nine point two million now and huma faxed. Ah even look it's going to make it's money back in the theater right. Yes that's good and as we've talked about time and again like the idea of with theatrical release is changing right and some of the criticism is why did they do this as a wide release. Why didn't they do this. As a platform release hit the big cities i do more of those fathom events where it's like a party for springsteen vans and then open it up to a bigger audience and i think that's a fair criticism by do think it's <hes> i just don't think movies like this. You know based on a few exceptions are going to be making tons of money sure anymore in the theater so i do think you know based on on whatever your expectation is my expectation is. Hey you made your money back into theatre everything after his gold i agree with that one hundred percent what i hate is the headlines that it bombed armed and that's what bugs me because you're right. It didn't do that bad. It's not it's not the avengers two vendors number so and again like i said it's a changing changing time. This is the type of thing that you would be happy to watch on your couch. Maybe not you but other people still need to fit in the springsteen on broadway's yeah and i can watch this alone on my couch and cry. That's true sure he'll do many times so i think it's doing better than some of that. Type of narrative is portraying it as yeah absolutely well. This is gray on as we always do. Do you have a movie. You've seen recently. It like like to recommend ooh. That's a good one. I didn't even think about that. Can i recommend t._v. Show instead so fuck it yeah watching <hes> letterkenny recently on on hulu. That's like amazing. I love that showed some weird shit canadian show a lot of people know about now that you know about this small in town in canada where there's five thousand people and the main characters are the farmers and there's also the <hes> the meth head goth kids and the jocks jocks and those could easily be characters who want to get out of four. They are strive for something more so i'll just recommend letterkenny right now. Is anyone in that like anyone big or knowing that we would. No no yeah sounds interesting right on. Where can people find. What are you going to recommend a movie or you. Don't i don't recommend things my guest recommend things i. I don't listen to your podcast. I know you clearly clearly well.

And I really felt good about the fact that I was using something that was harmless to the earth, but very effective so and I'm just thrilled so a a little cracks in my concrete they had we'd go growing through him I walked over my whole property, but to go back to what you were saying. It was hot, and it was sunny and I got a lot of vitamin D, but I also was in a full body sweat so much so that even my hair was sopping wet I'm sure Oh. Yeah experiences like that right? Yeah that's that's why you need the outdoor shower. I know I know so you know what tell us about the outdoor shower I would love one. How hard was it to set up? Well, it's not hard at also there's and this is. This is This was for my kids, but eaten obviously. invest a little bit of money and not much honestly. But here you know if you just leave the hose sitting out in the sun, the water warms itself naturally. I have tons of water bids in my yard and I just hooked up one of my hoses. And laid it in a sunny spot, and then I hung the hose from a tree with a little sprinkler head on it. yeah, and I hung a bunch of old panel curtains that I just kind of had laying around from the previous owners left in my house, and some Some Bell, some wind chimes, and and then little feed bucket. One, a big a big bucket like you know something. I think it's probably twenty gallons or so. Something I you wow Move stuff around in my Arab I. Just set it on the hose, and could a little bottle of Dr. Bronner's out there and. When my kids get really gross in the yard I have them shower off out there. We've. GotTa gotTA. Feel really good though I'm trying to think there should be some old television show where I think it was a Gilligan's island or something where they used to. Our outside was that it but yeah, I think that's a cool idea and you can do it. Super cheap and I don't know about you but I. I mean I like doing everything outdoors. I really do. There's some sort of Factor if you will about being outside and doing anything. Yeah, everybody relaxing relaxing like the kids love it. You know I, mean babies! They just love it so I I you know looked into doing it. Might more legitimately and it's. It's not I wouldn't even be inexpensive project under a couple. Hundred dollars to just you know, have something that's completely usable that they could. They could in all the time, so you know definitely something I'm looking forward to doing 'cause I'd like to shower in it, too. But I'm not I'd need a little bit more privacy for myself. You know their kids. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah of course, but Yeah, what about when? I was GONNA. Say when your home along, but you're never home along so. Well, yeah I, you know with kids. I WANNA time. I thought about one night going out there and showering and I didn't have the of the sun on the water so at night I wouldn't mind I. Need to get like an instant water heater, but they're just you know it's something that you can find us though super easily, and I think it's GonNa. Be a project that I focus on for a little bit just a little fun project to let go of some of the m more tedious Lens, and do something that just we'd all enjoy and have fun with an increase, our time outdoors, and welcome. Inside. Oh absolutely you know I was reading an article over the weekend about the health benefits of plants, which everybody you know talks about that plants, and there were some really interesting stuff in in this article about patients that this is the one I thought was really cool. Patients in hospital rooms with plants and flowers have our excuse. Me had significantly more positive. Psychological response is evidenced by lower too solid blood, pressure and lower ratings of pain, anxiety and fatigue than patients in the Control Room I. think that's like super interesting. Yeah, it's very interesting. I wonder. Do you think I wonder what the factor is? Does it have to do with the plan or does it have to do with they unconsciously or subconsciously? Thank you know realize that they're being cared for you. Know I wonder what the you know. If somebody's got flowers and everything, the person who's maybe smelling the flowers or Sensing the plants maybe associates it with somebody caring for them. Somebody bringing them to them. Somebody you know thinking about them. Yeah. So Absolutely and I have the same those same thoughts to. Improve the air quality, and put moisture in the air while we're moving allergens, such mold and dust, so they actually say that you're happier. Perform better at work. When you've got a plant in the room, so very song to consider. Yeah, yeah I, remember my room. Do you. Yeah, yeah should get a plant right now. Put It on my desk where broadcast. It's always great to have you on the show. It really is I. Know Today that we were going to discuss And what it is and so let me look at my clock here. Yeah, okay, let's let's start the introduction to this. Okay, so ricky. A lot of people think it's you know a bunch of stuff and a lot of people believe in it with their whole heart, so let's talk about this as a holistic energy treatment. What is it first of all? Let's explain. Explain to our listeners autumn what it is! So rake us, you often hear it referred to as a rookie massage, but there's no. There's no actual touching involved, or there doesn't have to be what it is is an energetic transfer which I immediately say, and then I you know my my inner critic, Kinda snickers at how silly that sound, but if I see on the basics of energy and you know, energy is something that can be easily measured with medical devices. You know something that has been greatly studied, and you can actually take positive energy. A person who is more I guess open to the cosmic flow person who's more open to understanding energy, they can actually serve as a conduit and transmute healing energy healing vibration into other living things, human animals even even plans so it's as though one person acting as a gateway and kind of harnessing the energy, and then diffusing it into another living being does that make sense now? Yeah Yeah Yeah. No and I know some people that are some very intelligent I'm thinking of one person in particular who who believes in this so strongly I can't even tell you and is actually seen it firsthand. with was very very sick, a child and and it and it. You hear stories like that. They're anecdotal. Okay, but this has been around for many many years. It's been it's been. It emerged in Japan. Is that correct in like the late? Yeah hundreds. Right, right, so ricky is a ricky is a very old traditional mouth of energy healing. You don't have to like I'm a I'm a certified master dealer, but you don't have to be necessarily if you understand. If you understand how to open yourself up and you know, be one with vibrational energy around you are able to harness it be able to channel it then you can. Can I mean you don't have to have any sort of certified training for it, but for the average person myself included you, you know it's kind of Nice to have this step by step process, and that's kind of what ray he ricky. Rocky gives you the traditional the traditional steps behind rake year, basically calling on curling on the universe to use you as a conduit. To help heal this person or plant or animal, and then you know you are. Following a certain set of steps essentially you know leaving no stone unturned sort of thinking, but you know energy energy doesn't necessarily following some sort of guidelines or rules, or whatever you know, you can do energy healing you know. The best way was ever explained to me. Is Think about one a child children who are more naturally connected with their their true, so think about when a child fall and skins any. What are they? Do they put their hands over there? So He. Can Act as a channel for healing energy. You know there's a lot of. And then there's a lot energy that emanates from your hand from your feet, and by putting you know a blue, and it actually is a natural way to heal yourself, so you're doing it unconsciously subconsciously super consciously, however, you want to refer to it as a child, and then you kind of lose that understanding as you get older and It's really just the way to bring back into your You know unnatural state of healing and maybe help a person. Who doesn't have that understanding themselves? Yeah, well. I don't know why I was thinking about this, but you know anytime you move your hands like for example to make the sign of the Cross. Let's say that okay, so yeah. I remember my dad. My Dad used to make the sign of the Cross. Every time we went by Saint Anthony's church whenever he would pick me up dropping from school, or we just happen to be going down that street. I can't even think of the name of it right now from my childhood. Childhood, and I don't want to say the wrong street, but anyway and he would always make the sign of the cross, and it's funny how how parents will teach their children things? Even if it's subconscious, you know without even knowing what they're doing I. Remember asking my dad wants. Why do you do that? Dad and he told me and it was to honor his father. Because that's where funeral was you know and that way or that went to Saint Anthony's at the time, but it's crazy and I'm I'm. GonNa go ahead and judge me. It's okay I don't care. Like this morning when I first got up, I was doing the dishes and there was a rainbow. I actually put an instagram on our story, but there was a rainbow on the left side of my yard and I was like oh my gosh, and the minute I I dropped what I was doing. Grab my phone and went outside to try to capture. Capture it. I I. Kind of looked at it I I was like Oh my God so pretty, and I tried to capture it, and I did, and but but after I filmed it and I was out there by myself for a couple of minutes, just enjoying the rainbow and being outside, it was before another storm hit this morning, but I found myself. Bless, you know doing the sign of the Cross and not like in a religious, but just in a I'm so thankful for this moment kinda way like almost honoring, Mother Nature and beauty in it. Is that sound crazy, but? No not at all I. Mean it's addition. Please reach think this has down in a lot of times. You know stories, or or you know people think that they're just doing it. Because like you said your father did, but somewhere along the where you're further, conveyed something I would say likely energetically that had a feeling to you that you associate with gratitude and feeling of gratitude for Universal Wonders. Something like that, and that's what you picked up on, so that's. Why you would do it when you see something beautiful that nature created, it's your acknowledgement that you know there's a connection between nature and when it's something you know that your father was doing. And maybe you know he didn't realize it consciously either, but it's like you can pass along healing. You can pass along kind of with the radio. You can pass along these vibrational understanding without having the cognitive understanding of it. You know and a lot of people do things they don't understand cognitive. Yvette maybe they do understand on some other. You know heart heartfelt level. But it felt good energetically as I'm sure it felt good, my father, honoring his father, and the honoring my father in nature at the same time, and so these are very real. They're very very real and I did feel like a I. Don't know almost like a surge in my body of just like I just felt really good this morning. yeah having. Moment. Yes! How would the mapping into that energy is huge? Yeah and we just went around the clock so I gotta go to break, but it was. With your coming back, we're GONNA. Talk more about this and we're going to do wonderful chant with autumn as we always do now. It's become a new one life radio tradition, so everyone in D. Two more coming up with autumn Connolly.

WanNa say Jason Harris is coming up in a couple of minutes as well. He was on a couple of weeks ago. Amazing guy he really is, he is the author of the. Persuasion I, G genius. He's absolutely genius as this co founder and CEO of mechanism and award, winning creative advertising agency, whose clients include Ben and Jerry's Felon Okay Cupid most in cores in Alaska Airlines and I believe Hbo and I think the United Nations or something like that. It's just insane but he's going to be back on today. We're going to be talking about how market yourself successfully. I can't wait, but I also cannot wait to get back in a into a conversation with my dear. Dear friend Autumn Connolly She lives in the Sky Islands of Arizona with her three Kiddos an animal babies.

It's and putting the word envelope and we'll get mine to come up that the a lot of others will come up, too. So, you know you. You have a lot. You always make me laxed. I love having you on Mondays. It's a great way to start the week Did, you have a good. We'd reminds me what it is. Yeah, no kidding, yeah! Well right now. It's like they all Kinda. Seem the same. It's like Oh. Fourth of July seemed just like last weekend, but but any other than the fireworks that scared the bejesus out of all the animals all over the country, so I don't like fireworks. I'm just GONNA. Say I really don't. They are animals and so why do we really need, can't we? Can We? Can we just like not have as many of them or something? I don't know. How do you can communicate it to your animals? Mine are all my role shivering. Oh, yeah, so I have a friend that has a bunch of horses, and she said they've never they they're. They're not as afraid of like a NATO as are You know fireworks Tau. She said they were running like crazy. Scared them just she said it's just horrifying. How how badly it scares them so I wish everybody would yeah. This was all about it. Oh I know what plus it puts a bunch of stuff you know into our air that we don't need more toxins. I don't know maybe. I'm being a hard. You know what about it hard, but but but I love I love having you on the show. We always talk about the greatest things we do and today we're talking about Is that. Is it Rakia rake I rake right, Ricky! Yeah, raking. It's spelled R. E. I K. I for those of you that have never heard of it. It's a holistic energy treatment, so you know. What are some of the benefits of Ricky? Well, there's tons of them, but I would say probably the most Most obvious one is relaxation so If you do if you raking to an animal you can, you can see it right away. You know animals without. Don't don't rely on their minds as much they're more instinctual and It will immediately make an animal relax, but in humans the relaxation element really helps because your body's thick, you know even it can be something as simple as a sprained ankle or something as complicated as you know developed cancer. And simple relaxation of your nervous system, your nervous system can cause a huge improvement and you know creates a healing modality because your body you know it stops, it stops getting energy to the tension that you're carrying because of your own mess because of the because of damage to you know either. Naughty or damage to your emotional body, so it allows me to kind of I guess, Give Yourself Space and allow your body to as I love to say, heal itself rather than the actual. Better than the actual activity being feeling allowing your body to heal itself by taking away the fear taking away, be mental connection to the pain and instead reminding your body. reminding yourself that you are capable of healing yourself and just giving it space to be able to do wonderful things that the body can do. so if somebody's. How do you know if somebody's legit? Though you know autumn, anybody could buy a white robe. Expert. Yeah well. Would a business right because of the push? Back I. Mean You have at least question that? You do have to question it for sure I would say the the the way that I generally go about my my legitimising people who say that they're into energy, healing is is I is I take a shot. You know I stop. If you get a weird vibe from the person initially, that should be a big clue they shouldn't. They should without having types here without having to be near you, they should. They should kind of emanate peaceful kind of feeling around you not one. That's creepy or You know it. Go work or anything like that. There should be something that kind of comes from them. That makes you feel. Comfortable in the first place, but then the other thing is just you know to try it out and see how you feel and there's a big difference I feel like between a placebo and a true energetic healing a lot of times when you haven't energetic healing, one of the very first things that happens after is a lot of is a lot of emotional upheaval, so crying is really common, so maybe you go in and for an energy healing thing and it's. you know like I, said something simple. twisted ankle sprain dangle. It's causing us some discomfort, but it's not GonNa, end your life. It's very interesting how a lot of times injury like that is when healing it healing some past emotional trauma past stuff you know, everybody holds onto these emotional blocks and I thing emotional blocked by reading the energy. Energy by letting a higher vibrational energy and energy with a healing vibration, go into your body. It actually will reduce emotional blocks and release them, and again by releasing use emotional ACSI gives your body's face to do things like work, you know healing, ligament, or healing, a muscle, or something like that so from my experience, even for something kind of trite medically. when you go in for energy, healing at crying is usually crying or getting feeling, emotional or something pretty soon thereafter assigned to me that the person that was doing. It works legitimate. there is some there's really some truth in that I remember the first time I did yoga and Audi Bernarda who came into my home privately because I you know I. Just I just wanted to have a private yoga session I and so anyway, so she before we began you know. She lit all these scandals, and it was about an hour session, and she said to me you may cry at the end and I. I looked at her I was thinking to myself Oh yeah, right? At the end you know okay thinking. Why would I cry at the end? But she says because you'll have emotional release and emotional release, and all this stuff was like okay. I wasn't completely. You know putting it off, but it was kind of funny, so we went through all of it. My Body felt really good makes me WANNA do yoga. actually but and then at the end when I was laying on the Mat, I started crying uncontrollably just because Donald Tear tears running down my face I. was like Oh. My God, what's going on here? What is going on and I was almost embarrassed and. I, said Patio. My Gosh like I. I can't shut off the tears. She said that's good. That's good releasing all about emotional energy. All those things that you've been holding onto all that hurt and pain. You're releasing it. That's wonderful and I appreciate. It changed my life. It absolutely life you know there's a I don't know if you've heard. The name resonates with you but Carl. John One of his quotes that I love. Is You know they're all mental? Illness is the inability to your is the inability to truly feel our pain and that's. What it is, you know we we get hurt. We get You know just a regular rented a millionaire. You get your feeling hurt and discuss it and you don't. You don't acknowledge it or you know. Something makes you feel shame. You behave one way, or you did something stupid or whatever, and instead of yeah, instead of going, and he just keep bottling it all up, and at some point you know it just does. It gets blocked in different areas of our body, and it's like we have this automatic protective self that comes in you know probably because when we're. Yeah, we're not sure of our. Our emotions so little kids you watch them. They're not sure how to navigate the world, and it just becomes this response where we just keep hiding things, and at some point you know your friends over and It's a lot. It's a lot better in my opinion to kind of keep the cup you know, a little less full by doing things like energy, healing, or yoga, or connecting with yourself or being mind, because that allows those emotions to come out and You can tell yourself you know rather than running away from that pain, cry and feel the pain. Feel a lot of times. When I'm just feeling A. I will, I will close my eyes, and do a meditation, or be mindful, and just search my body scan and find where high for me to go. There's something that feels you know out of balance with the rest of myself and just focus on that spot, and maybe cry or deep breathe, and just focus on that and releasing whatever it is and a lot of times it does cause a painful feeling. You know like that. You know like a-. Hurt of some kind and you know I don't know that I can always name it, but a lot of times it it. It completely will reset my day and it It seems like for for myself and I've witnessed it in my kids as well. It definitely seems to allow you to let go and be more in the present moment rather than having these this emotional baggage wearing you down all the time. Yeah and it's it's important to spend time alone to get to that place that quiet place where you can tap into your emotions and I have to say this you know We're all GONNA get hurt in life, and but you really one of the things that I've learned one of the true wisdom's out there that you really once you learn this and it's one of the four agreements you. You never hurt as. As badly and that is. You can't don't take things personally just don't take it personal and people. Like what do you mean? Don't take things personally housing you know because we all my take them so personally we do, but you really have to. When you reach that level of understanding that you really don't have to take anything personally people do things and they just do 'em. It's got nothing to do with you. They're dealing. In their own struggles, or whatever and so don't take it arsenal and right I mean. Is One of the. Oh Yeah. It's one of the best you know it's. It's in its written in such a way that it comes up all the time, and you know I kind of like what we were talking about earlier. Gad It's one of these there. These truths that are kind of woven into a lot of our common understandings, but because maybe are so common. We actually give them the important that they they should have, but you know. My daughter's something just happened with her in a group of friends and you know it's like. Like I struggled because at one point you know, I want her to kind of figure herself out. You know learn how the world yourself a little bit, but the you know the main the main wisdom that I have parted to her. Is You know baby? It's not you, it's them. Yeah, you know it's like that. It's like it's simple, but in her mind you know she. She looked at me and there was just like this clarity. You know those Oh right? You're right she. My daughter has super cells competence you. Like Oh yeah! I. Would I do think it's and I love that story I. Do but I. do think it's important also to examine yourself as well. Not say well, I don't take. It personal, wasn't me? Because sometimes it is you and sometimes you need to have gross sometimes. You need to change, so you? You know you got to temper that with a little bit a balance, but we're going to have to go to break here. Just a minute and I don't WanNa lose our chance, so let's talk about our champ. You're GONNA do today. It's called on Namo. Is that right? Yeah on the mall, and it's essentially a chance is kind of a lot of what we've been talking about so this opening up to the you know infinite wisdom to the universal wisdom. That is you know we've done being aware that can mean you know, energy, God Love Peace Universe whatever you know, whatever you want, whatever one makes you feel? Connected to something and I love. It is one for protection as well and healing, but again all that protection and the healing comes from. That you know you're not your minds. You are yourself and yourself connected with every one else's south. I love serendipitous is turned out because we do not plan our conversations really ahead of time we picked kind of. Just roll with it, but this this today on. Protected and connects us to the highest source of wisdom, so it's perfect. A. Lot of have it. Okay everybody, big deep breath in and close your eyes. Oh. Oh. Oh Good. Nah. Oh No. Good you dad. No Yeah? Added Online I. I, almost started crying towards the end, so I must be releasing something saying know much seriously. You enjoy that.

We're talking about how to market yourself successfully. Okay. Great topic good. That's great. I gotTA, showing that bio two. Well, you know what? I liked the way you read it though I like the way. Well, it's with. Genuine enthusiasm because I really think some of the stuff that you've done. is so world changing if you will and I? I aspired to learn a lot from you. In your greatness, I'm not just saying that I. Don't throw compliments up. At. Anyone blow up their skirt unless I really mean it, because I'm very genuine I. Really Am but but I think it was just such a good topic, because so many people are trying to market themselves today. Everybody wants to be an influence and I don't know if if if we if we've I don't even know how to say what I'm trying to say that we've maybe made a mistake here that that may be turning yourself into a brand everybody turning themselves into our brand or trying to is is really not healthy in some ways. Would you agree that some people just take it too far? I definitely agree with that I mean I'm I'm a big believer in in influencers, the right way social influencers online infringers. Done it the right way where they really started from a place of you know one one area that we talked about on the show from from my book I give of being an original and being yourself and really letting people in your life, and being vulnerable and I think the way the social media, influence or crazy sort of started. was really from a lot of pioneers who just kind of turned the camera and they really did it to open their lives up for other people that other people out there that could relate to that, maybe some of the issues or you know relationship things that they were dealing with or family dramas, and that's really how sort of influencers really kind of started and then. Then? They started getting a big followings, and then they started getting paid, and then everyone with a with a camera, which is everyone that has a phone. They just melt like well. That seems like an easy way to make some money so I should be influenced, or to doesn't mean every one of US needs to be an a social media, influence or an online all the time. Off To create that it started. I think from a really genuine good place, and I think there's a lot of influencers out there still like that, but no not everyone has. Has Things to say or I. Don't really need to see what you bought at the store with your unpacking video. You know what I mean like. Yeah, but I think it originated from a place where you know that youth could really relate to someone on the other side of the screen wasn't a a a famous celebrity that was like that, and that's really kind of the genesis of it. Well and then, and then you know so many people become famous. If you will in the social world by just going to say it by putting a little TNA out there you know and it's like. I don't think that's healthy I and I. Don't genuine like you said it's not genuine. It's not real and and I just don't think it's healthy for anybody to do it but I. Just a lot of women do it. I think it's I just don't I just don't think it's I don't know I just don't think it's cool. Yeah I. Think it's also obviously created. A lot of body image issues for for young for younger women and for men. You know for for guys to when you've got guys on instagram with with nine packs. You! Know taking out image photos and you know I. Think it's great if someone is maybe a fitness trainer and they're doing it for work. That's fine, but I think so many folks are just doing it to shop their bodies and build a following, because they're hot and don't really have a point of view. Don't really have something to say. They don't have a story to tell. It's just image image image and I think that's very dangerous. Ingredients. Yeah, and if you're born beautiful Kudos to you, that's that's great, but what? I ask myself. What else do you have you know? Is there any substance behind that person? And and what are you really all about and I? Think you know you know that's what and you write about in your book about the importance of connecting with people that people want authenticity they want to. They want to hear about experience at experiences that you've gone through and learn and grow from them right. Yeah Yeah they want people WANNA be. WanNa, be inspired and they don't want to be they don't they? Don't need. you know, but it's it's very. It's a very visual media social media, and so it's it's a lot of you know scrolling and flicking, and it's just like it's You know attention deficit disorder forming. It's just lack of attention. Scroll, Scroll Image Image Image, but I think really it's. It's about what how do you inspire people? What are you doing that bigger than yourself? How do you try to? Strive to be inspiration on your daily life by showing people what you're doing. That's good and I think that should rise above it and I. You know I do think it's fleeting I think you know it's just image based. You might be popular one day, and and you know fall from grace the next if you're inspiring and putting good things out into the world, I think that's a real connection and something that people will feel in their in their heart in their head and I think that's the way you make. Make a difference you know. Well and I. You know I don't know how you feel about this. But when I'm on social media scrolling, whatever and I see like a person that constantly is promoting promoting promoting a you know a product to our brand. me personally. It turns me off. Yeah, you, too. And and you can tell that it's not. It's not natural now. I can't knock people. Who if they're making their living and they have to plug products You know whenever you're doing any platform that is consumed by the public. There's there there's usually some form of advertising. Right like that happened. But when you're when you're embedding it into your your life, if it doesn't match lifestyle, if a brand is connecting with purely based on a number, which are often inflated, not real numbers by the way. On social, and if that's their connection to try to hit your fans, if it's not sort of endemic to your what you are about what your story is, then, I think it it it. It reeks of of being really fake, and we always advise if we're working with influencers. Don't you know? Try to do one or two or three brands and make those really you know? Make bigger deals with brands that are right for your story, so that's integrated into the storytelling versus trying to get fifty brands to do one offs, because that that's when you start to get. You feel like it's very transactional. It's not a product that you believe in, and if you're an influence on your building a following reach out to brands, you actually use and try to make deals with them, because then you can have a real to tell a real point of view why you like the product, but you know everything is. Be Art and commerce, so you've gotTa have money flowing in somehow if that's what you're trying to do for a living, but it really needs yeah, genuine authentic as much as possible. Yeah I I couldn't agree more. Anything I'm not passionate about I. Just can't I. I can't fake anything. But I it's so great talking with you and we're going to be staying with US WE'RE GONNA go to real quick commercial break station identification more coming coming up with Jason Harris.

It's another one of our special trailer roundups. We're looking at six movies coming out in november. Two thousand twenty this month got a lot of great looking stuff coming our way and i'm looking forward to hopefully covering a bunch of them but just in case we don't we're gonna talk some puzzle pieces on six of november's movies joining me again. Is jason harris who has joined me for our last couple of trailer up episodes mixture. You're listening to awesome movie year. It's another podcast that i produced jason harasses. Of course one of the hosts of it along with josh bell. Who you've heard here on piecing it together as well. And they are starting their season on the films of nineteen eighty-four which is our sixth season and Yeah there's the plug for awesome movie or go check it out and before we get into this conversation. I want to remind you as always to make sure subscribe to piecing it together on your podcast app of choice. You can follow us on social media at piecing pod join our facebook group popcorn and puzzle pieces and don't forget we also have a patriot. The produced by david rosen on bonus content from piecing it together awesome movie you're all-race no beans and for my music career. I just released a new album. David rosen and i've got a bunch of bonus stuff from the album and surrounding the rest of my music career going on the patriot as well so make sure to check that out. So let's get into this conversation which is in ariz- about some of the movies coming out in november. Who back with us. Today is jason harris. How you doing jason dave. I'm worried what are you worried about. Jason harris i'm not worried about the impending civil war. I'm worried about the cause of the civil war. Dave there's a lot of things come in Yeah from many many different angles many. I guess this would be better on your other podcast. But otherwise yeah. Maybe we'll get you over there at bird road to To commiserate about how awful everything is but you know. It's not terrible jason. You know it's not something that makes me want to want to die pending films coming to streaming video because you've seen the lied on. Why streaming is so wonderful and essential at right back to being depressed. Yes there are a lot of great movies coming out on streaming over the next month as a matter of fact while putting together our list for this month i started seeing what's coming in december in man we have a stacked rest of the year It was pretty difficult to even narrow this conversation. Down to the six that we're gonna talk about Maybe we'll touch on a couple of others But yeah a lot of good stuff coming in so this is going to be fun to talk about as you know my goal towards the end of the year. His name is to wear sweatpants and sit on the couch under a blanket and eat cookies and watch movies and ignore all social norms. This year. I think everyone will be joining me. Yeah that sounds like a plan. That sounds like we'll all be doing but let's talk about some movies. The first one. We're going to talk about is coming out just a little bit after election day where it'll be in our rear view mirror. Hopefully it'll be good news but it is called proxima. It's a foreign film. It's coming out in november six vod. It's it's been out for a while overseas stars. Eva green and matt dillon. And it's about a woman trying to balance her life as an astronaut go into a space station with her family life and her daughter. What'd did you think about this. One dave first of all. I think you're mistaken. Assuming that all over an election. Day dave i already told you. Civil war thought it looked fine. It's you know Familiar territory shore. You know we've seen a lot of these. I think there's a comedy here if you want to have a female astronaut with a newborn baby and she accidentally gives it powdered milk instead of breast milk. That's good stuff right there. Of course it's not you're right everybody. It looks okay. You my first puzzle piece dave. Yeah give them all right. Let me hear what you got. And then we'll see what i got okay. I went with gravity. Obviously female astronauts who went on a mission to sadly get over the death of her daughter. I went with interstellar which is about a man who is trapped in space only to spend an entire lifetime to go back to see his daughter and once he sees her he saw. She's like you probably don't wanna see me. Go back to space. So that was a real rewarding ending. Wasn't christopher nolan. Sure was and just for fun. I put space camp the nineteen eighty film. Because i liked training montage in this one and i like the trading montage and space camp. That's a nice curveball. Right there like it. Speaking of speaking of training montages. I thought of i man Which of course another movie about the the push pull between the job of being an astronaut and You know trying to actually have a family and have that life as well. I also thought of lucy in the sky. Which i never actually saw and i know got really critically panned with natalie portman But again it does seem to like you said this has been something that's been being explored a lot lately. They were astronauts and Dealing with that push pull and then just one other one. I thought mainly based on a very cool and synth heavy score in that trailer. I don't know for sure. That's going to follow through into the film. But i thought of apollo eleven the documentary which i has one of the better scores in the last few years and Yeah some great music in this trip. I'm bummed that. I missed that apollo eleven in the when they put it in the theater really quickly for like one showing at two pm on wednesday and that was really good could release schedule so who is worth it. Yeah so this'll be interesting. Eva green matt dillon and it's partially infringe partially in english. And you know why not. Yeah looks good so we are going to move onto a documentary. We we got a documentary in last month. And i figured we might as well squeeze one into our list here this month. We're gonna talk about i. Am greta coming out on november thirteenth. on hulu certainly not going to be controversial at all as nothing that this girl does is ever controversial. But it's about credit thumb berg and the climate crisis and obviously very timely with everything happening right now with politics and everything happening. What did you think about This stock i'm gonna watch it. I'm excited. I think it's something in the name you know greta she gets. She has this controversy surrounding her. Because she's trying to fix climate change meanwhile rock and roll band. Greta van fleet. Everyone says they sound too much like led zeppelin. And it's like just let these kids play music. Right right i mean. Do you wanna see the worst in people people who pick on greta here. Jesus man. that's just the worst. The worst type of person barrels. Oh was a teenage girl. Trying to save our planet. Let's be little demean her. Your horrible human being i. i'm looking forward to it. Looks like a good documentary. Obviously it inconvenient truth came to mind because i was the first one that not the first movie probably about climate change but the one that really mainstream did with al gore talking for an hour and then i picked another documentary that i do recommend about a child. Prodigy called chef. Flynn about a teenage chef. Who like from very young very young age like maybe even before he's a teenager is in the public eye and people expect great things from him and that. Maybe isn't exactly what's gone on with greta here but she has done great things and she's constantly in the public eye now as a teenager interesting. Yeah i i haven't seen that but sounds really good and yeah it'll be interesting to see with this movie. How much of it is about her. And how much is about the mission at hand and and what. She's trying to affect change. I of course also had an inconvenient truth on my list and then Another climate change documentary before the flood. I thought it'd be another one that Seems to be the same wheelhouse of of what exactly they're Trying to push for here with getting the word out which is insane. Two thousand twenty. And we're still getting the word out about climate change. But that's where we are now. Dave which led zeppelin songs. Did you pick for the greta. Van fleet's pieces. Yeah that's a good question. Probably probably rock and roll. That's i think Good one to go with here. All right they play rock and roll good job moving onto our our next one. Right this coming out november seventeenth on vod. And i'm looking forward to this i. I'm curious to hear what your thoughts are on. It's called fat. Man and it stars mel gibson as santa claus and a kid hires a bounty hunter to kill santa claus bounty hunter played by walton coggins and it looks absolutely ridiculous. Pitch black comedy. What did you think about this. I can't wait for this. I think of all the ones this month. This is what i'm most excited about. And why am i would have liked to have written you know so. I don't know about this version but the idea of a kid putting a on santa's is really funny. So you know when you think of dark dark christmas movies you start with bad santa. That's what i start anyway. So that was my first one. And then i picked maybe an obscure mel gibson movie from the early two thousands. I think payback. I don't know if you ever saw it. But it's like a hardboiled. Love payback the movie where he needs to get revenge because James coburn shot his coat or ruined his code. Something like that. And i love that movie so those those were my influences here beautiful. Yeah now those work absolutely. I just have written down. Every santa claus comedy. That's very lazy. But we'll see once we see the movie which ones really work the best. But also i i love including including payback in. The dark comedy seems to be like a big tone here and so i also went with another dark comedy. That's also an action thriller. It's also sitting in the snow. it's liam neeson film called pursuit. Which really grew on me. After when i first saw it. I didn't really like it very much. Because i kind of don't think they sold that movie very well on the dark comedy that it was going to be and i went in expecting just a liam neeson thriller and i was like what the fuck is this. I don't know anything about it. But i'm gonna watch it now because i like comedies and i like liam neeson thrillers so yes it definitely combines those things anyway and let me tell you something about liam neeson special set of skills in each movie no matter what the situation is. That set of skills is purvie to take out the enemy. I just thought you'd like to know that just wondering if we ever did schindler's list on awesome movie if you would break out the leonie's attached it's turned into a pretty good impression to say it was not bad at all so next on the list. Going back to hulu november twentieth. This one is called run and this is actually probably the one. I'm looking forward to the most this month. Even though the story seems very well worn territory. I would say about kinda munchausen by proxy mom keeping her daughter Kinda hostage and you know. But also sarah paulson has just been every kind of tv show series movie thing but searching. I thought was one of the big sleeper best movies of the last few years and so i'm really excited to see what this director does now. And you know there seems to be a lot of technology involved in the trailer. But he is stepping away from that kind of you know some might call it a gimmick thing of the africa what they call is screen life or something like that or is it more. Who's directing you design his name or the other guy. I would butcher name if i even tried to say. It's not going to. But i agree with you on searching great movie. Absolute real screen. I think you said. I don't know but they but they did a good job with that in that film. I'm not sure this is seems like it departure and like you said well worn territory. I mean literally hulu has the act which is actually based on that true story of gypsy. Rose lee is at her patricia. Arquette won the emmy for playing her. Mom who's you know doing this to her and of course that is based on the. Hbo documentary mommy dead in dearest. I also have in here doing something obscure from nineteen ninety-three mother's boys with jamie lee. Curtis where she leaves and comes back and now the data's a new girlfriend and she wants her family back but the dad's like no and she kind of like manipulates her children into doing what she wants to get to to get her family back. And it's all about the manipulation of a mother and children so those pieces there. Dave i like them. Yeah absolutely and i will just add in as a piece here along with the act and the other one you mentioned love you to death which is actually the same story as gypsy rose story but the lifetime version of that story time has done a million movies about this kind of subject And then also throw in there the six cents because they believe One of the segments of that film was the the mom feeding the kid poison or something like that so seems along that line. Yeah i know. That's the spoiler to get out there to six hundred Say i'm looking forward to that. One and i am definitely looking forward to this next one. Also coming out november twentieth coming to. I believe theaters as well. I'm not sure about that. I it's called jujitsu and it starts nicholas cage who we all know. I love as well as tony. And frank grillo and it's just this completely insane over the top action movie with alien invaders in martial arts and It it looks like the kind of crazy want when you hear nicholas cage is making a crazy movie. This does look insane. Obviously i put the expendable because it has so many action names. Right the you would show this might be closer to scott adkins film which i i didn't have on there but if you haven't seen scott atkins movies you should watch him. I thought this kind of like alien coming from another realm and nicholas cage us to play like this kind of guru who teaches someone how to defeat them. That kind of reminded me of the matrix. Morpheus neo thing. Yeah and it's balls to the wall. So i have crank on there and of course My last influence is donkey. Fuck monkey boehner karaoke shit because what is happening here yeah. I think you're right on that one. I probably just move on and that that sums it all up. I love those pieces. I'm gonna. I'm going to add in for good. Measure are going to add in the predator because that does seem to be some kind of alien predator thing that can do everything in his out in the woods. Picking people off. And i'm going to add in the one that i was reminded of the most actually The great wall with matt damon as this white guy who comes in and helps this. Giant army battled giant monsters on the great wall of china Which is a very stupid movie very ridiculous but if you're a fan of giant monsters kind of fun thought but yeah but i recommend highly enough donkey funk boehner carry on your pants they need to get the spelling of that from you for the puzzle pieces on the show nights so moving on to our last movie. This one is coming to net flicks on november twenty four. Th it's called hillbilly elegy. It's based on a bestseller strict by ron howard. Stars amy adams and glenn close and looks just like the ultimate beatty kind of movie. I don't know what what did you think about this. I have this book on my bookshelf. And wish i would have read it before. The movie came out but I don't see that happening. i'm excited. I mean look amy. Adams is excellent in everything right. We know sure. And it's nice to see glenn close like really. Do show it showcase her abilities. Because i don't think you know. Sometimes she doesn't get parts that really show. Just how amazing of an actress she is. You know right right so luck. Yeah it's ron howard Small southern town drug addict mom guessing is a opioid crisis. Type victim there and it definitely looks like you said oscar bait tear jerker but hey it could be really good. And that's what he does good so you know. I think it could be a good one. Listen i'm gonna be on my couch and a blanket under you know my sweatpants and cookies so like i watch this one. Why not more me up off the things. He got thought of it. I was the tv show justified. Because i thought they really nail that kind of southern kind of small town. And i don't know i don't think there's a crime element but there's only like a police drug element in this one and even though it's a different type i just think justify did that as well as anybody in the last decade i'd say and then the other one going really with that kind of small southern town where everyone knows everyone's business sling. Blade is on my list shore so this i admit it was a tougher one to find to really think of pieces so yeah it really was. Yeah yeah yeah. I for me i. I only came up with two also. I one the glass castle. With brie. Larson and woody harrelson kinda like this this kind of drift her family and you know they they kinda squat. You know different houses. It was all right. it's again it's kind of like just that obvious oscar bait kind of thing and then it got absolutely no attention whatsoever but it was. It was effective though. I thought the other one. I thought of was The fighter just because of that kind of family you know where. It's just dysfunctional kinda. You know it's funny. I know you just watch forty year old version. This is like white poverty porn. The fighter also came to my mind. And i just thought am i. Is it just so far out there that it wouldn't fit. I'm glad you said it. It's hard to say when you're looking at trailers. But i think you know i think it works by the way the forty year old version is on my top ten list right now for this year. I would have to agree at the time of this recording. I think that's gonna be next week's episode. I recorded an episode on it so it was not asked me on it. You're you're on a lot of episodes lately. I always gonna have to clean that of so that brings to the end of our six movies. Were did any of the other ones. That i kind of had on my shortlist kind of standout to you. Anything you wanted to give a shadow to. Yeah the vince. Vaughn body switcher bloom house movie. What is that one called filthy freaky freaky freaky like a like a cool freaking friday. Yeah right it's freaky friday but our version. So the victim. The teenage girl gets switched into the killer's body and vice versa. And i'm like that's a really really smart fun. Take on it. Why aren't they releasing. that for. Halloween is a good question. Yeah actually that's a really good question. You and i are about to record this episode later tonight on on the rocks which is coming out. Base came out this week for like halloween. And it's like. Where does hollywood come up with these ideas for release dates. I don't know on. The rocks was on our list for last month in our last preview episode. Did you watch anything. Besides that that you wanted to mention from last month well. I actually really kind of enjoyed huby halloween. I have to say. I had a really good time with that. I know i know you had a an issue with understanding all huby there but i thought it was really fun very ridiculous but fun and i think that's it though i i didn't get a chance to watch dick johnson. I keep trying to haven't gotten to it yet. I've heard nothing but terrible things about the war with grandpa. maybe i'll see at one day. But i kind of highly doubt the and love monster just came out dick johnson's supposed to be all. Yeah it is. And i'm really looking forward to watching it when i get a chance and bad hair. We didn't get to yet. I'd like to see that. Yeah love and monsters. Look sir all right. Well we tried. What what what did you see any of them. I saw on the rocks. And yes so. Just you'll be all we'd i just you know i. It has so much potential to me and it was difficult to understand the main character which is unfortunate fair criticism of it. Luckily for me. I watch everything when i'm at home. I watch everything with subtitles so that made it a little easier. But i'm glad to be hit. It shows at there is a audience. Still or adam sandler. How ahead of the game was that guy to make that deal with netflix. Before everyone was making these multi picture deals with them. So i know right. So does this shit crazy comedies. And nobody does it as well as the sandman. Yeah absolutely well. I think that does it for this trailer. Roundup jason. why don't you tell people about what's going on over an awesome movie awesome movie year dave right now by the time this thing comes out.

Now here all your host, Doug Sandler, and Strickland Bonner decorated. Combat veteran, Jason Harris. He's literally in the pilots piloting multimillion dollar jets as an international airline pilot got so many questions. I can't wait to ask that I know workforce. I'm not gonna say anything about south west air or anything like that. Don't worry. He created the no failed trust philosophy approach and methodology designed to empower executives and employees to create an environment and atmosphere of mutual trust responsibility, productivity that allows organizations to thrive and exceed goals. This is going to be totally cool. Jason is a motivational speaker of some of his incredible stories that he shares from stage is a consultant. He's a certified character coach. He's also check this out. So he's all of those things, but he's also a decorated combat veteran and Jason brings his unique perspectives gained from the battlefield to organization untapped potential of your employees. If you wanna tap your employees in, I'm not saying this in any kind of negative way, but I I'm telling you this guy is legit, where fortunate to have him. He'll here welcomed. Jason ice guys on business podcast. Thanks so much. Appreciate. You have me on board. I appreciate that. I always so speaking on board. So how do you. Okay. So why is it that some pilots when they get when they get over the air, you know, on the, on the speaker system? It sounds like this is hold on. Let me just do my worst impersonation. Of airline pilots or former four. And then they hang up and then they go off. And you think what the hell did. He just say he did not tell me to brace for impact or anything like that has he and then some pilots are really good on the microphone. So which one of those pilots, are you probably can tell a lot about your, your flying style just based upon that. Well, here's a funny thing done, what we talk about in flying in airplanes. Is when you keep that microphone there's a button, right? And it's called the, the push to talk. Switch or PT switch. And what we train students for new pilots as we say that button is a push to talk. Switch not a push to think switch. That's right. You know, and the and the next thing man like, and I love what you say because I can't stand when I'm on a flight as a pastor and just hear job. You're like dude, what it like no one understood sad. But, you know, so I flew to swollen captain made a great story and, and literally when he gets done making announcements people come up, and they're like, oh, my God. Your voice is like God like butter. Yeah. They're like these voices made for radio. Right. You practice. This thing. You know. So for me, I try to do that. And when I kept the Mike, I try to keep the Mike and go, ladies and gentlemen. This is your first officer Jason here. Speaking out like the welcome young war to American Airlines flight 200 one. There we go. So the other thing I want to ask you about we'll get into what you actually do in a moment. I have so many questions about the pilot side of. I don't know how you learn all those fucking gadgets and digits and all that stuff that's up on the in the cockpit. I have no no idea. It seems to be so compact in there. It's like barely room enough to fit all of the equipment, let alone, you know, two or three people that are up there. But my question is this when I was flying. So I fly southwest, a lot because it's, it's easy hub out of out of Baltimore. And I do a lot of work back in Baltimore. And I live in LA. So I am I notice a lot when a pilot lands, the plane oftentimes his? I don't know if his breaking style in an airplane is the same as, as breaking style in a car like my pilot last night all he was doing. Is he slamming on the brakes and just like every twenty feet? It felt like was a jerk. Now was that was that his all or was it the maybe some some out balanced rotors or something I don't even know how to work. Well, if it's another airline, I'm definitely gonna say it was totally his will come to my airline, and we're gonna make it smooth like butter. Funny thing is man my wife, she went on a trip yesterday, and she sitting at Texas. She goes, oh my God. I was passed up until the pilot decided to have a fight with the ground upon landing, Gino. It's like slam slam and I don't I don't understand it. I guess I guess every landing is a little bit different like landing in Vegas is probably a little bit more challenging, because the air is so thin there in the summertime. It's gotta be really hard to what's the what's the best and the worst airport that you come out of man, you know what they are challenges is like you said the time of the year what's going on. You know, is there some weather pattern happening and then to to your question about the breaking right? Like a lot of times, we land with our automated grading system on because that is the one of the safest things that we can do, and then other times we actually apply the brakes ourselves manually. And so we choose each time we brave that to the other pilots to what we're going to do on the landing, and we're gonna use our automated breaks or forgive us our manual breaking ourselves. And then there's a level of breaking so I can do one two or three one is kind of, like, all right. You're gonna stop three is like, dude, we're trying to make sure we don't end up at the seven eleven on the other side of the. Highway. Fluffy plays, exactly. And then like on the airport's main, like I think it's so cool. Each time it unites. I'm still giddy, like a kid man, each time I land at certain locations or take off. And I'm like, do they let me do this like, wow. I know my brother flies, a Cessna one seventy two or flew Cessna one, seventy two a dozen or so years ago. And even though it was a little, I think four or maybe even a five passenger plane was it was pretty cool. I mean just these little single prop planes, it pretty cool to fly. Oh, yeah. Flying in and of itself, made is just so amazing is the is the break is the break, like in a seventy two Pinto. Just like right by a right. You just kind of pull it up with the little thing. The. Turn it hard and just do a little skied out the back end of the show. That one hundred times I'm thinking do the donuts, I could do it. This baby down this runway. Oh man. Oh man. That is so cool. So let's make some connections here. Nice guy communities, like okay? Get to the conversation around like everybody. This is the conversation. This is it. I had Jason on the on the how do we connect originally? Do you remember? I you know what? I don't know. I think we have found you as looking at podcast, I was looking at link, Dan. And we had some common collectively and decided to reach out, man. And I loved what you were doing hurt. Some of your podcast is let me just reach out to the students because he seems like a great dude have a conversation with while now, I'm thinking, your bullshit may because here's the deal. I mean, we got nine hundred episodes of anybody's. I mean listen to even ten of them, they probably said, I have never listened to this ever again. I have no idea how we got here. You know, it seems like four years into this run in nearly nine hundred episodes later by I think this is probably somewhere around nine hundred this, this recording today. It's just seems so amazing that people. You know, I don't know what it is. You know you have this what you think is the easiest thing in the world. So okay, now I'm gonna I'm not diminishing any of the any of the talent that you have, but the stuff that comes to you so naturally stuff like leadership sales skills relationship building, tenacity, you know, major major operations management that kind of stuff, probably at this point in your career, speaking from stage, that stuff comes so easy for you to you, because maybe it doesn't come so easy. But I mean, it's, it's a thing that you probably feel. So confident now but take go back to that beginning part where you just said, I have no idea what the fuck. I'm doing, you know, I I, I kind of feel a little bit. Like when did you? When did you step out of that? I'm not actually knowing what I'm doing. I'm just doing it stage and get into the point where you just said, I own this shit, I own it. And I know what this is all about is. So obviously. We're going to get along really fricken. Well, Doug because let me give you the secret man. I still feel that way. Sometimes I get in the damn jet now where they're most holy shit. And, and it's, it's not that I don't know what I'm doing. It's that reality of, like you know that imposter syndrome. Right. And a lot of us we deal with that. Yep. So I've done this anecdotal study at times with other pilots. That I'm like, hey, man. Do like I'm freaking out that we're going to land this Chicago today, because I'm only lead into Chicago, you know, a handful of times, or it's been a few months. And I don't want to screw up that number one. I don't wanna screw up the damn landing because I don't want people to be talking trash about me think I was a navy pilot. Number two, you know, I, I don't want to be a wandering aimlessly around that massive complex. And so I need to know where the hell I'm going, and I so somewhat overwhelmed. Yeah. And I've had other pilots go look due to go. Let's be honest with each other and bringing the curtain down and go dude, it took me to three years of Phil competent, and Phil comfortable. That I knew exactly what the air traffic controller we're going to tell me to do on the ground. I knew exactly what they meant what they said, not a gift from point. A point B. This isn't that right? So I say that. So the people out there. They understand that even as a pilot even as a combat veteran as a as a professional speaker and things that I do. There's still those moments were you like oh shit. What about you know now? Right, right. I can still do it where I'm like do. Okay. I'm flying their planets. Cool. I got it right. But, but it's it's that training over time in it's kinda goes to what I talk about on the stage is you gotta have the right. You gotta have the right training. And you got to be the trust at training. You gotta have the right process that supports the training. And then, from there that, that enables you to trust the people. Right. And so for me flying airplanes. We'll just start with that one. You know, the air force invested a lot of time money and energy into teaching me in training, me how to fly airplanes, in really more than training to fly. The airplane, they trained me how to fake, and they trained me how to assess the situation, a no win. I'm in over my head and a raise my hand go. Hey guys, I'm fricking clueless. And they trained me. The know how to basically say, guided up, it's all uncontrolled no matter how scared shitless I am at that moment in time, you know, and then they supported it with processes like checklists that we have, and, and different things that we do that, that allows us to refine our skill sets overtime. Yeah. And I've just taken a lot of that and put it over into my. My personal life as well as in my speaking life or what's so amazing about it. And I appreciate your answer. What's so amazing about it is what I heard you say. And again, correct me or add or take away anything from from what, what I'm my listening skills. Sometimes there was a lot of drugs in, in college. I fall. Though it was like, okay, there's three areas that you really have to trust. You have to trust yourself. You have to trust people and you have to trust the systems or the or the stuff the processes that are around you. So how is it that you build on each one of these things, it seems like they all three kind of go together? I mean it you can trust yourself when you start trusting the people around you, you trust your ability to make decisions. And when you can trust the process in the systems that are in place you can trust other people as well because you see them plug it into the system into a into a, a system that is routine, and over and over again. And, and when you trust yourself, I mean, that's alternately that's the best level of trust that you could possibly have. I think so talk about how what you bring to an organization when some when organization hires you, whether it's as a keynote speaker or somebody that's going in and doing some consulting or training with them. Talk about that. The level of trust in yourself in the people around you and the systems and processes that are in place. So, yeah, man. So it's, it's interesting how you kinda sum that up. And what I do is. I talk about you gotta be the trust your training. And then you got to be the trust the process and then you got to be the trust the people, right? Yep. Sorta and a lot of organizations we hire people. And we just say, hey figure it out. Or hey, go over to Doug and Douglas show you how to do it, right. Like, right now, if you needed to bring someone in to take over your amazing podcast and produce the next night hundred podcast, does, Doug have a, the right training and place to teach them everything they need to know or at least teached Munaf so that they can work on their own figure out the rest. And then once you train that person or an organization trays that person, then let's think about what that process is, that's in place, or should be in place to support that training. So, for example, at the airlines, you know, they me to training for four to five weeks on how to fly the airplane, but I've already got a lot of other training behind me. It's me learning and understand a fly. And then the processes that are in place. I have these things flows in checklists. So I know at this given. Time I do this. I know at this point in time I refer to this checklist. And at this point time, I refer to this other checklist that allows me to make sure that everything that I've been trained to do is now supported with a process by way of a checklist. So that when it's time the land, I don't go. Oh shit. I forgot the gear you know, to make. So everything's got a obviously, everything has a process and assistant and everything. Also on airplanes is has has some level of redundancy, you know, I'm assuming that, that, that's, that's not the case in real life. I mean there is not redundant ways. I mean there probably is done two ways, but we're not trained on all the redundancy, that we have personally, but, but when it comes to something like a multimillion dollar jet taking off and landing. They're probably many redundant systems in place. Well, so I am I in the most redundant system. We have is the humans. Right. And so we've got these two people up there and we're supposed to support each other, and we're a team and part of that, as I talked about the training and then the process, and then it's the people, and you have to give your people certain skill sets in certain things to build them up to be at a trust them and then to be in a trust themselves. That's also wrapped around psychological safety those elements, but we also talk about that no field. Trust methodology where we talk about these seven skill sets. If we did a study. And you said, what are the seven skill sets to support a high performing team to fly? Multimillion dollar jets around the world or to run a podcast. It has over nine hundred episodes it has an amazing following what the heck would you do or real estate organization company broker that sells houses out the yin Yang? Right. And is this Drake killing it? Well, what are those things and those seven skill sets? We start talking about those begin to be the part that supports the people within your organization. I'm very now. You've now you've piqued my curiosity. Can you share an example, because we do have a number, you know, you hit on a perfect that we do have a number of, of real estate agents in our listening audience, and I know a number of their brokers that actually listen to the show as well. So share some things in not necessarily related specifically to the real estate agency brokerage area if you're not comfortable talking in that world, but just talk about some of the skill set cetera involved in, in handling, you know, a business or not. Operation in general. So I'll go over the seven skill sets real quick with you done hit couple a skill sets. Share it with professional knowledge, says professional knowledge, situational awareness, assertiveness decision, making communication, leadership, adaptability and flexibility. Okay. When you look at those seven skill sets now you go Kay. Let's overlay that on our business. Let's say that overlay that on our organization, and see what we get for our people are can you cover them. What can you say him? One more time. In case there is anybody in our community. That is writing them down professional knowledge. Yes. So professional knowledge, situational. Awareness, adaptability. I'm sorry, that next a is assertiveness decision making communication leadership in daft, ability and flexibility. Okay. And of the one of the seven that you just mentioned share share which one or which ones are the ones where people always say, you know, we've probably. We could do a better a better job here. I mean I'm looking at him and I'm thinking people really understand professional knowledge, that's you know, you can get continuing education, you can get credits. You can get educate, you know, any kind of education, the one that I would look at it maybe I'm wrong here. The one that I would look at it and say, boy, you've got to be quick. A quick thinking on your feet would be situational awareness just understanding how to react and react to what's going on immediately. Because when somebody's new, especially people that are oftentimes, we train the ones that are brand new, the ones that are seasoned veterans are like hell. I don't need any more training, but that's usually not the right way to go with somebody. That is new training, situational awareness or training them to have the skill of situational awareness sometimes not easy. I would think. Yeah. So, so situation is far from being easy, man. I mean, you know, how do you tell somebody to, to look around and know what's going on? Right. Right. And I think that's a culture thing. Right. And so one of the signature stores that I like to tell us about the loadmaster. Later in the way, I lead into the store is would you trust in eighteen or nineteen year old kid it's been a stowaway in mom and dad's basement playing fort neither call of duty would you trust them with twenty three and a half million dollars? Let me take it to another level. Would you trust that millennial or whatever title you put on that person? That's fresh out of high school, you know, still dripping with joystick you know, you know. Would you trust them with two hundred million dollars worth of stuff? Hell no, well, yeah. Right. Will in the air force, we do that every day man like the C one thirties. When I flew, they were valued at twenty three point five million dollars in nineteen fifty dollars. Wow. Yeah. So do the math, right. The C seventeen we people out here, flying, there were two hundred and twenty million dollars will our loadmaster Z's young people fresh out of high school, seventeen eighteen nineteen years old, they control board eighty percent of our aircraft and the culture that we cultivate is that they have to be aware of their surroundings, that situation awareness what's going on. And then we have this thing where we're at any given time if you're getting ready to make it the perfect landing or, or even a crappy landing in the loadmaster, who cannot see out front says, go around we immediately reacted we go around. Right. And so that, so that is them having the situation awareness to be like, dude, something is not right. Or to beat a look out the windows and go do. That, that, that is play out or to look at the gear. Well, when they do their gear checks before landing checklist that process to go. Hey, pilot, do this is not smart? Not a good idea. Let's go around, and then, so that's that's situation awareness. And then that other pieces, the assertiveness 'cause because let's be honest, made a lot of these a lot of folks that are out there running businesses. They think they're the smartest guy in the room or at least we at least we know some asshole, who thinks he's a smart guy in the room. Right, right. Right. And sir, when when that seventeen eighteen nineteen year old kid says go around or says, hey, Doug, you might wanna think about how you do your podcast because you could do this. So now they're exercises some situation awareness, and some assertiveness are you gonna listen? Or are you going to go? Now dude, I got it. I I've been doing this for thirty years. I'm good. What's the biggest thing that you run into when you're when you're looking to get hired by an organization? Do you find that the, the, the staff always knows their problem? But management never there's a problem whatever. Whenever I run into it. I'm like, okay, I'm before I get hired her before I do any hiring of Michaelides because I look at it this way, I gotta wanna have this client also because if I'm going to deal with the management team that's gonna pay me, but isn't gonna follow anything. I'd say it's gonna make me look bad in the end anyway. So you get an organization where you go in. You do an audit of their of their current situation and you see while there is such great opportunity for improvement here. And then you and the team, the staff actually knows it, but you, you talk to management, and they just yes, you to death or they have no idea or they're just looking to, you know, to fulfil a bid requirement or anything like that. How do you deal with an organization when you get hired to actually make changes throughout the, the organization, I would think that you need buy in from everybody, absolutely, Doug in? So, you know my, my going in argument or going in position is that your organization has already fantastic. Right. Your organization already is doing a great job, you know, whether that's a nonprofit organization or real estate team. A startup or what have you. Right. Right. I I'm going to do an event here this coming week with a group that was a startup, but now they're gonna rain dollar company and they are amazing company. But let's figure out what we could do to take that level of trust that you already have, and let's take it to the next level. Right. So you've got trust. But what about let's figure out how to get you towards that? No failed trust. Right. That, you know, in the middle of the night when they call us up to go into a special operations mission in, they say, I need you to deliver at fifty feet off the ground. This fifty pound speed bag or two fifty pounds, speed bags that have all kind of ammunition in supplies. These guys need before they get overran by the enemy. You don't have the option to fail. Plus, or minus thirty seconds of put that speed ball on target to the to the user, so that they can fight their way out of that situation right in your organization. You already got some bad ass people that are doing some bad ass stuff. But now how do I train them to? Take it to that next level to be deliver on time on target all the time. Right. As opposed to just the wavering peace, and so that's where the buying comes in, because I'm not coming in to tell you that you organize ation sucks. And I'm not that guy. I, I work with winners. Right. So you're orgnisations already solid. I'm just trying to help you to take it to another level and help to bridge that gap with the psychological safety. Now ribs, I got with leadership and the foot line workers to go. Hey man, is there a way that I could actually say something to the, to the boss to the leader, where they're gonna listen and they're inclined to listen and then also were I'm able to fill valued as a frontline guy that I feel like my voice matters? That's what I do. And that's where I come into play. So, so there's a number of people that are in our listening community, and we get a lot of feedback from, from those, especially we call him, our funk, and fans the ones that are really close up and personal for us. And one of the things that they say is, hey, the guests that come on your show. We love the. Come on your show, and we want to use their services, often and we'll we'll take advantage of them, but take advantage of the services by clicking on show notes, and go into a link and all that stuff. But many times, they're not in a position today to say okay, Jason's my guy, I'm gonna hire him. I'm going to bring them in to be my keynote speaker at my upcoming conference, but they still want to be able to take some some, you know, some advantage of what's going on with the stuff that you're sharing today. So is there something that you could say to somebody that's in my community that is either struggling with X or working on why or trying to figure out z so that they can actually take some of the information that you have tomorrow and put it into action? So can you share maybe an action item for somebody? That is trying to get to the point where they they're trusting people trusting themselves or trusting the processes and systems around them so that they could say, okay this guy's this guy's good. You gave me an action item. I put it in play and, and I have an improvement in my career in my personal life today. Yeah, absolutely. Doug great question. So I. Off, if I'm talking to those that are in leadership roles in that leadership role doesn't mean that you're the CEO, right. That leadership role is you have someone who reports to you, or that you work with, and you can be a leader without a title. Right. First and foremost man's show, the people that you work with, and that you worked for in that work for you that they are valued. I think one of the biggest things that we are missing in our workplace environments today is value. Like people people walk away every day in like crap man. In what happens is our bottom lies and our organizations they suffer because if you make me feel like crap that I'm going, go, non not given Doug, an extra five minutes today. I came in at nine I'm leaving at five. He asked her something to teach me to five fifteen screw that matter of fact, I'm leaving fifteen minutes early. You know what I mean? But when you show people that they are valued, something as simple say, hey, Doug man. You looked great today. Thanks so much, dude. But hey or hey Doug, how's your kids doing? Hey, man. I like the simple. L'est things in that is I cover a lot of those type of simplistic mindsets. In my cockpit conversations where I put out content different social media platforms, but that alone. If we figure out how do we show those around us that we value them? They will feel value in bay in turn will bent begin to give back to our organizations in a way that we can't even comprehend isn't it amazing. Isn't it amazing that of all of the, the knowledge that you might be able to garner through training and education and everything that you have in job on the job training? And all of the skills that you're able to build the the key skill. I mean I wrote a book called nice guys finish first. I mean it really truly is all about just building relationships. Better relationships will better business, and it that has nothing to do with the education that you learn from your job training, it has all to do with the people skills that you have. And if you can improve your people skills, you're gonna have more people trust you, you're gonna more people that will that will follow you and you become a really. Good leader. If you have a people skills that are just, you know, genuine empathetic caring, those traits that many people feel just, they don't have much place in the work environment. I disagree with that, right. An an it's an acid thing when you look at those seven skill sets in our no film, methodology. And you look at anyone else's things you look at your book and other people who put out content, it's really the soft skills, that are more challenging, and the soft skills are in my opinion. What gets business what wins business what closes deals? Right. I'm I have clients of mine that they are out pricing their competition on the high side right there, there points above the competition. But because they have a relationship and because they've utilized those soft skills, they created in cultivated this, this relationship with their client and their business partner. They're closing deals in. It's not about. How much their stuff cost? It's about the value that they added to their client period. Absolutely. Absolutely. And if you are on those that are in our community and listening and, and are feeling completely in tandem with what Jason is sharing. Your best bed is just to go to his website, which is Jason Harris dot com. I think we'll put a link in the show nuts prior to the show airing if not it's still going to be Jason o'hara's dot com, but will put a link in the show notes how you can get a hold of Jason so that he can come out and do a keynote or come in train with your organization and show you guys his it's called the is a called that no failed trust program or the argue referred to it a couple of days. So I want to make sure I got no worries man. So it's no failed trust. Methodology great great. So we'll make sure that we put a Lincoln the show tell you have access to, to Jason and his and his team and Jason so share possibly just some final remarks to our community. They're trying to try to move ahead in life. They wanna they wanna get ahead. They want more people to trust them. They. More people to, to hire them to do the stuff that they do share something that would be maybe just a, a little tidbit a little tip for for our community then. Yeah, man. So I, I would say for those who are trying to move ahead and get to that, next step, you know, number one trust yourself understand, who you are. And appreciate your value. You don't a lot of times we walk around, and we have some positive syndrome. I spoke with a little bit about earlier in. We don't trust ourselves man. So understand that you do have value understand that you are amazing. Be confident you are becoming your skills and showcase them. Right. See the thing is, is that no one knows what you can do into you. Tell them in. No one knows how good you are until you tell them in show them. And if you just take on a personal level, you just figure okay, what is my training than I need to do if I already have that training. How do I showcase the that training? And the what does the process than I of following? That's going to enable me to utilize that training to get to the next. And get to the next step in life. And then from there entrusting, the people, what can I do to show people that I ask you to them and show, then that I value them that allows me to create the right relationship in network to then build myself in a way that allows people to realize that I am the right person for their job in that opportunity. It sound what's so great about it is, it's obvious that you're passionate about what you do. And you'll love your message and you love the creation of your of, of your methodology, and I just love that because oftentimes people go through a lot of times, people will just go through the motions of doing their job in, in a position to whether you're motivational speaker or especially if you're a pilot, you got you gotta have that level of excitement. When you let if you ever landed at Reagan airport in DC, you know what I have that is a pain in the ass. I mean as a as a passenger, that's tell you. I'm helping you know when the when the when the pilot gets on the earned says skipping. Just lean to the left really hard. Bank coming right over the I guess, there's some, some restricted airspace above the White House. So they really have to make that that hard Bank. And then you got slow down so fast as you come into that airport to yet, I told you, Doug that, that airport is one of those ones where you put it on max breaking because here's the deal, man, you either you either get stopped and taxi away of like, dude, I just totally put my head in the seat in front of the person in front of me or you'll be like I don't know how the hell we got to the seven eleven that's on the other side of the river. I totally get that totally. Oh, hey, while he got why have a pilot, maybe you can give me some some some knowledge here. What the hell is the deal with those max eight airplanes? I mean what so is it a? Are you familiar with what's going on? I'm sure you probably are because probably all the talk of the industry right now. Right. Well, I will tell you man as a as an airline pilot number one. I trust the equipment that we fly on number to trust the companies that are building it night trust our pilots more than anything. Yeah. I think that there's some things that will will be discovered. Eventually, I'm very much aware of what's happening. But I will also say that I don't fly that airplane. Yes. I am not nearly as intimately familiar as I am with my own airplane, that I fly that said, I would hate to speak out of turn and incorrectly. Because to be honest, probably know about as much as you in the general public knows. I thought I thought it was just I mean again, I'm not asking you to put yourself in a position of being an expert for the, the max air airplane. But, but what I thought was going on was some sort of software issue, where they would, if it would Bank too hard, it would stop. I don't even know what the problem is with the I mean, I don't again. I don't even know a hundred percent with the with the problem is with the air with aircraft. So, so everything that I've read in the in the news media is similar to what you're talking about. But he actively the, the systems in the aircraft is we make incremental improvements of the aircraft. And we, we change were the engines are ad we change certain profiles of that aircraft. And then there has to be updates to the systems and software allows it to adjust for flying characteristics. Right. Got it. And so, with that there's some adjustments that were made some things that were put in the place. And I think that there's some challenge in terms of how the system engages and then also. So how do you overcome that? So you talked about redundancy earlier. Right. For most everything on an airplane. The idea the reason why you have the human there is. Because the human has the ability to see what's happening and go, wait a minute. That doesn't make sense. That's not right that does it align, with my training that doesn't allow the process. So let me fix this. Manually. And I think that's kind of where we're at in terms of figuring out how that process works. Yeah. What do to better be aware? The problem is there something that we can do to prevent the problem from happening in the first place. And then there's, there's some differences in training that might be. The might be available to, to everyone to, to be of a handle that problem or any other kind of problems. That might be out there, not totally totally agree. And, and again, I hope I didn't I hope I didn't ask you a question that puts you in any jeopardy with I mean you don't fly the aircraft. So I guess it really would do so our all our all jets. I mean against Deuba questionnaire all jets, Boeing's, or do they have many, other how many other brands of jets are there. I only know Boeing now so, so I fly the Airbus eight three nineteen eight three twenty eight three twenty one and so the two major manufacturers of airline commercial airline jets right now is Boeing and Airbus and so equally impressive jets in their own rights. They both have some amazing capabilities some amazing things that they do. And they're both coming out consistently with new technology with new innovations to their jets. And there are craft went when are they gonna make bathrooms bigger? I go, I'm six four. So I go into the front the one right by the the cockpit. I have to literally lean back my my head. I feel like a backwards toothbrush when I when I go into the bathroom and the front and the back one isn't much better, and I can only imagine I'm just, I'm six four but one hundred and seventy five pounds. So I'm tall in a really thin to put anybody. That's got any kind of way to them. I don't know how they get those bathrooms. Do I feel like every time I go into the damn bathroom? I feel like I'm creating another sketch from Tommy boy or St.. Go and I'm only five foot. But I'm like dude, this, there's going to be a sketch for, like Tommy boy, Saturday, Night, Live or stepbrothers coming somewhere somewhere in there. Hidden cameras, somebody's gonna be filming 'cause it's gonna be like what just happened? Yeah. Yeah. And yeah, I I got it. I have so many questions about the pilot thing it's a whole other episode. Maybe we'll get you back on one of the Tuesday Thursday. Episodes to talk everything pilots with, with me and strict as we just had. I'm sure that he's got just as many questions about all of the stuff that goes on inside airplanes, including what like hookups are going on with the flight attendants all that, all that other stuff that'll be a whole different episode and we'll disguise your voice. You know what, like digitize you so, you'll be the pilot that comes on or I think I'd just blow your cover. Something else. This is garbage. Hey one final question. And this is this is just because from my perspective because I'm a podcast producer, everything wants like a fucking podcast. Why the hell do you not have a podcast? You have the best stories. You have a great voice. You have a clientele that would probably, you could probably get get a lot of business from pike is why don't you have a podcast? So fantastic question. I've been I've started doing some stuff from the cockpit cockpit conversations. Yeah. And creating also. And so I would love to explore the idea of really just getting serious about a podcast. So man, I'm gonna send you after we after we stop recording here. I'm going to send you an article. I did. We have this this series that we did about thirty episodes. It's called pop podcasters on podcasting. And it's a little e book that I written for that. Or somebody had written form. Fuck nobody I did. I wrote my own book. But that's about the last time I wrote and that was handful years ago. I, it'll, it'll just say have, you know, the little QNA of all the reasons. Why podcast would work in your particular case? I just see it as a natural fit for you to 'cause you are personal guy, and are you a part of it? National speakers association or are you doing all I am a part of NSA? I'm actually on the board for the Colorado chapter Vanessa very cool. Very cool. Well, we got a lot to talk about also. So we'll we'll do that off the air. We don't have to bore our listeners with it, but we'll get you back on Tuesday Thursday show talking everything pilots. And let's do it, man. I appreciate you being here in your store your motivation, all of the stuff that you that you do. And again your service to our country. Thank you so much for that as well. And I'm I'm excited to get feedback from our from a nice guy community. Thanks for being on the show today. Thanks to really appreciate really enjoyed the conversation man.

So this book all about Sofa Arte persuade. I'm excited about this. It's like it's sort of like did you ever with it really was how to win friends and ask right. This is an updated version is updated version. It's for the modern age. I went back and read. All those books and you're like what's missing yeah well. They're like it's almost like act a certain way. Don't be yourself. It's like fake. It's fake and it's like get them talking. Be Interested interested in the things the other person's interested yes versus leaning into who you are and your quirks stick. It's a stick. It's like this is the way you're successful is parenting other people bill and this this is obviously opposite that which is you gotTa know who you are leaning into your true self and that's how you're successful. You know it's your character and who who your lover so it's that and then the soulful part which will talk about which you'll relate to. I was watching your like big idea intro tro video about what your big deal and it is about the soulful piece that pillar is all about what are your skills like. Everyone has two or three reschedules that they're really good at and then what are the things that you care about your purpose and you try to like line those things up and that's what being Sofala's all about value. No it's like if you can line those two things up. You know basically you take like a sheet of paper. You write down your three skills and three things that you care about like your purpose us and you figure out how to put those together and that's how you can like give back into the world and that's like what I do with It's on US campaign go to the White House advertise. There's a cause their pencils of promise to bring in your summit back to where you were from. You know it's it's putting those skills to what you care about blogs books about that then being generous person being an empathetic person like understanding other people love school so these are all the habits and get get into like how to develop those habits. I love it. Yeah it's cool. We've got a Jason Harrison the house welcome to school greatest man. They pump that you're here. Thanks for having me. You just gave a brief brief overview which we'll just leave that in okay sunny. La We met back in two thousand ten eleven twelve when we where was the first meeting through brandon or was it through yeah through Brennan was trying to do something. I can't remember I don't even remember. Maybe was like getting you market something for something like that like you always asking people to. I do stuff. I can't remember I'm brandon somewhere yeah through Tim Ferriss one of his events or something camera moto. Maybe maybe yeah there you know he went instead of me. He went that's why I met him and we got connected and then I learned about your guys company. Yeah mechanism and you guys has do tell tell us what you do specifically at mechanism so where creative ad agency and so we work with brands to figure out what they're going to stand for in the world and then create the marketing materials and messaging ads social media do media planning buying basically put their message development put their message out into the world's fuel. You'll find the directors you'll scrip the commercials or the video assets whatever may be Yup and do everything from concept to idea to launching it to promotion marketing marketing. Every sector assembly line you know starts with the strategy. What is the brand. GonNa stand for as a brand like Peleton fit into the fitness world old. How are they different to the creative of. What's the concept what what's the? Ad GonNa look like then to making it like you said and push marketing marketing and tracking hit and then repeating it. Is that a five step process what does that yeah five or six so so a brand like Peleton. John is a public their numbers of what they're looking to probably not public but the multi billion dollar multi Multi Billion Dollar Valuation Yeah definitely and how where would they be without an agency like you guys helping them with all that marketing launch of their messaging to the commercials that I see on tv all that stuff well. I think you know we were certainly part of helping them craft the brand making the brand. Phil sophisticated making making the brand consistent over time but you know really they. They just had a a credible product and the the thing that is great about Peleton saying and come out with a bike or a treadmill or digital APP. It's all based around the community and the communities leaderboards the community through social super supportive and so focusing on that community they can just come out with multiple multiple products and that's really what they focused on community the community and what we do is make the brand we up the brand through production values storytelling and so we just sorta compliment would they would they built but I mean they just cracked cracked. The code rush that it's about community and it's about working out from your home. It's on demand workouts. I mean they just killed it. It's amazing. What's been the biggest challenge from a marketer marketer advertiser standpoint since you started the business? What's the brand that you had the hardest time working with coming up with this process for the hardest brand to do that for trying to think of a brand that I worked with in the past because I can't name my current clients Gotcha Cycle. Oh Cool Gotcha Maybe maybe one that was challenging. Then you figured out like Oh this was the hook and it ended up working out. Maybe it's a current brand to those like man. This is really challenging to figure out how we're going to launch this message in the world but then it was like a big success when you did well. I would say we work with Charles Schwab so we do Charles Schwab ads which is broker firms and they're hard trying to switch. It's all about switching from Com ca via firm and who's the lowest fees and the best quality yeah and so though the team and we've been working with them for a while but what really sorta catapulted a lot of their successes the team cracked the idea of coming up with instead talking about what Schwab is talk about the other guy and so they came up with this character Carl who is like sort of a lot of the opposite values of did this book. He's like not trustworthy. He's just trying to close a deal not in it. For the long term he's overcharging and this Guy Carl was character and then it was the push off of the opposite of Charles Schwab and so that sort of unlock which is a unique idea because usually think about putting the brand and I was talking about the other brand talking about the other brands but this was personifying sort of like what Apple Apple Mac did those ads the ads ads agency. Can you hear me now. Yeah Yeah exactly say farmers actually doing that right now. kind of worth like the state farm agent is there and then it's like or you've got your grandmother shirts age after trying to get a hold of and it's like hey belly. Yes that can be effective worked really well for them. That's cool man. What's been the most fun you've had working on a brand. Obviously they're all fun because you're we just did the launch of Madman Cannabis this company and I think just being able to be part of that story and tell that story of how cannabis used to be George which Washington grew on his farm and then president the yeah the president grew on his farm and then we went through this period that we're coming out of now where it it was. It wasn't accepted. You got thrown in jail for carrying a little bit of it. Meanwhile you can like get prescription drugs. Go nuts with those alcohol all these other things when when cannabis is a lot lot less proven to be a lot less of an issue in society and now we told that whole story and talked about it being the new normal where now it's becoming legalized in every state slowly over time but cannabis is here to stay and it helps. There's a lot of health and wellness benefits. I think just being able to tell that story in a really interesting way with that Diorama look I think that's been. We're really proud of that and that's cool. This new book that you have is called so-far of persuasion the eleven habits that would make anyone a master influence her and we were talking a little bit before about how you talking about the other traditional books on influence and persuasion like how to win friends and influence people but you said there those other books that would teach these kind of tactics tactics yeah what was wrong with those types of strategies or tactics verses kind of these eleven habits that you have here so you know books like how to sell all the old. Dale Carnegie Stuff from the Nineteen Twenty Nine Nineteen thirties which are still perennial sellers that was created in an age of selling and pitching there was much different than the age. We live in now. You know we live in an age of distrust where you don't know if it's you know there's fake news. There's phishing scams. It's hard to trust Google and facebook anymore. You know sure so who's taking your privacy or whatever you use taking your privacy and so we live in a different time and back then it was much more. Those lessons are much more about how to friend people by letting them talk act like you're interested in the things they're interested in getting nodding say their name twelve times. Everyone loves their name say their name twelve times. Give them a gift. Get them yeah. Ah Yeah get them to yeah. Exactly law reciprocity exactly get them to a yes really quickly and I talked a lot about in this book that I have a chapter called. I'll never be closing knows not. ABC that's right so it's the opposite NBC yet so it's the Glengarry Glen Ross the idea of you know get them. It's all transactional just get to sale the sale the sale and never be closing philosophies about playing the long game building relationships ships over time understanding that that's what creates value. That's where you're successful. That's where you win. You don't win by checking off deal deal deal. It's about long term relationships. The chips and playing the long game is is how everyone should be thinking thinking never be closing. It's not about the slow true. It's about the long long term value of relationships. That's like that's all I've done because at the beginning of my kind of journey which was ten eleven years ago. I didn't have anything to offer. I was broke. I had nothing to offer and I remember being like I could really get something from everyone right now. But why would they give me something when I have no value to give them so. I started saying okay. How can I be the champion of everyone's network. You just match them with someone. That could really be beneficial to them. If someone needed to hire a sales rep or marketing person or whatever it was I was just trying to find people for for other people's needs and just continued to add that value and that became the value that I could add people and over time they were like. How can I help you back like this. Has Been Amazing thing for me like you introduced me to this person. You helped me here and I was just like I don't need anything right now and I would always just come to delay the ask until I had a book or something really meaningful that I wanted to close on yeah but the more that I think we do what you say which delay the ask and don't try to close all the time. Just how how can you give and give and give. I think that's a good job with that too. Yeah so what you hit on is that idea of generosity which is sort of another idea either. Being one of the habits is like habitually giving something away at every every interactions whether it's a piece of advice vice. It's a connection doll. Those connections like give them away freely. It could be you know when you have something simple like a book or story story that you read that you like. Send it to someone you know you. Don't just post it for everyone to read you. You send it to someone on a one on one basis and just building things about just habitually obituary giving things away. It pays off with compound interest. You don't know how and you're not doing it so that one day you're going to sell a grip load of books. You're doing yeah because it becomes a habit and becomes part of your character and then you know you don't know how but you know that that's going to turn into a business success personal growth right and so that's another one of the sort of principles in the book. There's eleven habits to becoming a master thoughts right in persuading people. Is that what it is to. It's all about persuade you buy into your vision. Your Dream Your Products Company anything right. That's just you and to you and and the idea is that we're all persuasion persuasion sort of a loaded word you know but we're all persuading all day long. You're persuading called enrollment. We're they're enrolling people into our vision or into our requests. They're enrolling us out of it. That's right yeah and it's simple things like you're convincing your girlfriend where to go advocate. Jack are where we're GONNA go to for dinner where you're GonNa go for dinner so all day long. You're persuading your boss to give you a razor company to hire you or someone to publish a book like all day long. There's micro instances of persuasion and this is really about building a personal character and habits to allow enrollment all meant to be more natural veer and it's also about being yourself and finding a purpose 'cause that's what gravitates people towards here is really knowing yourself leaning into your quirks being able to be vulnerable. I remember when we did the we had the White House for for the it's on US campaign those crazy you stood up in front of the story. The whole place was just like in awe that you know a a macho dude could be vulnerable to that audience and it opens everyone else up and unless you are really comfortable new yourself knew where you're coming from. You wouldn't have the power to do that. You know which you were able to do that for for context people listening. I was was Joe Biden. was there something or I like it. We did a campaign with Joe. Biden called it's on us which was to end sexual assault on college campuses and we brought you and a bunch composers yeah people in the room hundred people at the White House Joe Binds talking yeah and and and someone said Hey we're going to ask you guys to like make requests on how you support this campaign and so different people stood up and I felt called in the moment to stand up and share story for a minute or two about being sexually abused he's myself and how I didn't think other people should suffer with this are go through this personally because the trauma crates and what I was going to stand up for so yeah you've got to be really confident in yourself. Know yourself like you said and be able to be vulnerable wrong able to not be perfect like we all we all have flaws. We all have issues news. We all have things we're trying to overcome and accomplish. Whatever wherever we came from whatever background leading into those gives you power you know not trying to push those has down and suppress them leaning into being vulnerable and things that you're going through power and we were talking about stuff beforehand which we won't go into here here because it's not public information but your ability to be vulnerable in the middle of things in your life right now is as powerful allows you to connect with me and chase who is just can can act as well so yeah exactly what it's about now you've got these seven habits and there's a four core principles principles and there's there's kind of sub principles around that right so the first one is original. What does that mean to be original so that's really about being an original. You know it's that Oscar Wilde old quote be yourself. Everyone else's taken at its. It's sort of a few habits around how to lean into your authentic self and you can find your truth and you know one of them is the persuasive power of storytelling and really understanding what drives you how to tell your story and so there's sort sort of some work workshops here about like how to do that and how to pull out your story how to tell better stories. Just tell better stories and really understanding what your story is and what you stand for you. It's just about being original. That's interesting. It's an art to learn how to tell stories. You can be very challenging for people I find it very challenge from me. Telling stories kind of your job is it is challenging for me. I'm good at telling other. People's stories good like coming up with stories. I'm on my own. I'm I can tell you their story. I guess still stories those someone told a one time facts. Tell stories sell and so if your guy or girl or person who's got a lot of facts when you're talking to someone it's not going to sell them. Persuade them as much as if you tell a story that's right. There's this go into in the book but there's psychologist Jonathan Height who said the mind is a story processor processor and it's really about that facts and arguments kind of go in one ear out the other like stats and numbers and data might be important but stories really matter when you know Martin Luther King is time about he has a dream. You know that one day his four children will be judged by the content of the character and not the color of their skin. He's telling stories telling a dream. He's not talking about socio economic numbers and this what this population has. This population doesn't have or the unfair balance. He's he's making a really big proclamation and he's telling a story a dream he had and that that's what we remember. That's the power of storytelling to always always think about it that way. You got the power storytelling storytelling you got you said never be closing. That's part of the regional because a lot of people always selling something right. They're trying to get the the sale as opposed is to giving an outing value system. It's just transaction a lot of chicken. Check check check and when you're transaction based things come and go and part of never be closing is also looking at when you philosophy of like when you hear no. It's just no for now. It's not over like we I mean even work. We'll have clients. We won't win the pitch you stay in that relationship. Maybe three five years later six comeback around six months later they they come back around once experience five you know five years. I mean Brennan just want a piece of business that we had pitched. I wanted yesterday though he pitched two years years ago really stayed in touch with with the client all of a sudden. Someone made a mistake and he was right there. They picked it up so that's part of that philosophies. He's got his it's switching your viewpoint and you say another habit is to turn and face the strange. What does that mean so turn and face. The strange is all about my my idol David Bowie and so I learned I learned about this concept of being original really from David Bowie and David Bowie obviously obviously he was a musician when he started he his label wanted him to do folksongs Bob Dylan and he was David Robert Jones and those like tanked. No one heard of him music was like somebody else it wasn't him and so he quit it left the label went to a Buddhist monastery studied mime of all things you know strange dude he started an experimental arts lab came back at reincarnated as David Bowie created these stories ziggy stardust thin white Duke different albums and and leaned into his he wasn't afraid to fly as freak flag was he man or woman was he homosexual heterosexual. You didn't really know but that was him. That was him was stirring things up and being himself and now he's you know B he became one of the best selling artists of all time by leaning into authenticity and what he stood for and so that's why being strange being strange whatever you're trying to face the strange whatever your works are lead into your quirks like don't. I'll try to be what someone else wanted to be with. The label asks do what's inside. He's well appropriate that stand out and become more who they are the ones that benefit the most in the future feature yeah if you're just trying to be like everyone else just trying to fit in yeah. You're not really making a mark on the world. You're not making a big impact. It's the ones that are willing to be strange and accept except that's the key. I love the show Glee for that reason. I don't know if you've ever watched for me was one of my favorite shows. It's all about like the Weirdo soclean concert dude. No way did glee. I'm jealous. Yeah I saw the glee constant even know there was a key mazing all the all the cash was there Yeah Kevin. How's perform my gums as awesome. That's amazing but those were all like the kind of the weird outcast. I guess of the school but they're the ones that like when they finally accepted who they were. That's when they shine exactly. You've gotta learn to accept who you are. Even if it goes against everyone else it should go against everyone else. That's right but that's when your shine the most I talk about being generous in another key principle and persuasion. This is kind of like the old law of reciprocity the prosecutor look when you give people feel inclined to want to give back yeah so why why do you say give yourself away the polar positively liberty and just a little respect so well. They all come from. They're all based on the same concept that you so some of these habits. Abbott you inherently have you you inherently had generosity is one of your habits and so you were connecting people when you didn't know where it would lead. Just who you're are other people can they don't have that they can learn that skill you know these these are all skills that you can practice and learn like anything else their their muscles. You gotta work out out and for me. Generous is all about not expecting anything in return and just giving away. Respect is another form of being generous generous and I cover a study in the in the book that Harvard Business School. They interviewed twenty thousand employees and the number. One thing that they said made for good leadership was respect. It wasn't it wasn't time off. It wasn't a razor your money or promotion the number one driver was respect and if you respect the people you interact with and work with me and that's where that's where the action is you get more out of that team. Yeah you'll if you respect them and see them as peers. That's what is going to level you up interesting. I heard these stories about about how Steve Jobs was disrespectful to a lot of his product developers that he'd length throw the phone back in their face or whatever you know talk bad about people but maybe that's just one one all times but maybe he also had a level of respect for them somehow some way some other way or maybe he was that one in a million that was such a freaky genius or we we had other other habits check followed him because you're like. I dude. He's amazing. He's a he's got. He's Got a vision putting it out there and he's getting persuasive and other ways. He was an original though he wasn't resin original for sure. He wasn't original okay so we got generous. One of the key habits gave yourself away the Polo positively acitivity. What does that mean so. The pull positively is is just simply There's a lot of different ways you can take persuasion and I cover cover that sort of covers. There's negative persuasion which are also really affects persuasion base persuasion like my old football coach in high school. Go or something that was just like screamed at you. If you drop the ball like he did that was affect. I mean in some ways it it may be work hard but Maimi constantly stressed and I don't think you want that out of the people around you. You don't want them to be feeling fearful and stressed by your level of persuasion. You don't do do this then. I'm going to scream at you more yeah yeah and so it just sort of studies like the impact of negative or positive persuasion wages and how positive persuasion wins out in the long run negative persuasion can certainly have its benefits and be effective. You sit in politics cruising raising that mean. That's all it is crazy. That's all it is just fear based attacks. Yeah there was a nineteen sixty four Lyndon Johnson added. I like campaign ads like that that was called daisy and it shows chose a girl in a field picking picking daisies than a nuclear bomb goes off and then the screen fades to black and it's basically like the world's ending like if I don't vote for this dude in all my God my you know my family's GonNa blow up in a nuclear war you crazy. That's negative persuasion effective it works it works because that's fair base us and this just argues that the opposite is more productive for society more sustainable more healthy cash politics. It seems like it's gotten a lot worse for people win based on those fear based tactics they do. I mean I feel like Obama one based on positively he did an image an ideal all of something greater that is why he right he he broke through because he wasn't going to get down to that level and I mean look how from there to to where we are right. The pendulum has swung so far. Maybe it's always outside named bully bully name-calling crazy here. I know it doesn't seem productive but that's just me so you got the original. He got the generous giving mentality. When we give of our time of our energy you are listening of our respect. It doesn't have to be constantly giving gifts that can be just our connection could be generous with our listening. That's right time nine advice. connections compliments that you think of but you don't say you know you're. You're like oh I should then you. Don't don't you know like give those messages out there like that. Positively off. That'll make you make you more persuasive and then empathetic wise empathetic such a she to persuasion and being influential severally that the basis of that is about the idea that we are all connected acted related you know human beings are where the universe's only storytellers we all share ninety nine point nine percent of the same aim. DNA but yet that being said the world is like super fractured and so that's really just trying to I understand your audience and there's sort of habits on how to do that and not my dad doesn't have the same belief so we don't we hate. We were like complete opposites you still have you still share so much. In common and it's understanding shared values we all at the end of the day want the same things and so safety laws safety love Connection Action Human Connection Yeah. That's those are sort of the drivers. And how do you understand how to look for those that don't shut people apple down a little bit more open and be empathetic and how are you pathetic. When someone is attacking you or making wrong or screaming at your just. It doesn't want to bring the common ground energy when it's just like screw you you're wrong mess this up. I hate you type of energy. I think thing it's your job and you know there's cases where you're just like. That's not worth my energy but there's there's ways to unpack doc what's behind that emotion and what's below it and why that person feels that way through empathy through empathy and try to see things from their perspective active why they feel that way and not talking to them the way like if they're talking to you you talk to him back because that's counterproductive. If it's something in business relationship or yeah a family relationship if it's a relationship you don't need you know that's fine right right. Ronnie that in your life but if it's if it's something that you need to work through it's how do you how do you understand and ask them key questions to see things from their perspective. Yeah empathy empathy collaborative imperative have yet. It's all about coming together and working together I used to be I used to be focused on competition my whole life yeah and it wasn't until a few years ago when I was like man and it's really hard being competitive with everything and why don't they just start being more collaborative with everything and when you think that like I mean it started to gradually change the last six seven years when I started to open up about sexual trauma and really kind of being vulnerable about the things I've went through my life and accepting myself who I was as opposed to try to put on these masks sort of really starting to shift after that because I was like man I'm always trying to compete with everyone to prove my worth worth to people or to the world or whatever to myself when I was glad onto prove myself anymore because now I accept myself so I can just collaborate more and every year I get more and more of this collaborative spirit where I think my default is. I want to destroy everyone like I wanNA crush. Everyone like programmed into you right. It's like I need to win. I WANNA crush but then I'm like okay that doesn't support me yeah and it doesn't support humanity having that mentality so why don't I always come from a place. How can I lift everyone else up. NB generous to everyone else and they're gonNa you know. I'm going to be up there with them. Wasn't that why you're successful yeah because of that mentality and that that shift did that happen when you were working on your book Yeah we did it happen happen like it happened before that the book sort of pull that it was about six years ago yeah. I wrote my first book. It started to happen right before that yeah started having maybe a year before that when things started to shift and it was more of like I was just trying to do things to prove to everyone that I was is like good enough or exactly that was like the best right now. It's just like what am I doing. This doesn't support anything being like. I told you so you feel. I gotcha internally yeah. I was like okay got what united why don't we all succeed yeah so I mean my platform platform in the last six and a half years has been plowed from sharing other people's stories yeah and putting them in front of my audience and I think that supports me by putting the spotlight on someone else. Yeah it always shines reflects back on you as opposed to saying hey everyone look at me all the time. Look at this idea this person this experience against right and then the reflection and when you think about competition. What are you trying to win anyway. He's like what is what is winning to be like the number one in person in the space of selling books whatever I mean I always want to grow yeah make a bigger impact but I've eating that came from sports athlete that mindset came from being the youngest of four can feel like I was never seen and eating here had dropped to my siblings. Roy is amazing. I was like how do I beat Tom or catch up to them or whatever then sports so. I think it's hard to shift out of that mindset. When that was my entire life was like being number one and being the the best and then eventually realized when my first business was building it was kind of the engine that got me to where I was building a multi million dollar business but remember. We're just like lots of relationships were suffering because I was very combative. It was like my way or the highway yeah and I think that's like a young entrepreneurial me. A mindset front approaches like I can do this. I can lead. You can't do it without without the team. He's it like you. GotTa do it together. Collectively that's when I started now I started shifts six years ago six and a half years ago and a lot of things involved and not only evolved in the external world but my internal world evolved loft and that was when I brought a lot of piece of my life so I have a story on empathy and understanding other side that I just can't. I can't believe this isn't a movie but I I ran across it. As I was working on the book but in in Nineteen Fourteen War World War One there was it's called the Christmas truce. Have you ever heard of it or Smith's truths truce truce yet. TR UC troops and on Christmas Day Hey there was the allied forces and the German forces and on Christmas one side started seeing like carols shut up and they all crawled out of their trenches and foxholes and they for the entire day they swapped pictures of their families shut up yeah and they made eight a soccer ball out of masking tape and they had like a soccer strewn away. We're then at the end of the you know that carried on into the evening the end of the day they went back into their foxholes and started killing each other again and it was war you know one of the bloodiest wars of all time that shows you like how similar people are at a a sort of pinnacle of like. I mean we're talking about war like I'm going to kill you and that the idea of coming together no one shot down their weapons and then they went back on they started killing bad so beautiful sad at the same time now the Christmas truce just create a piece from there yeah. I know we're all trying to like go back home yeah. Let's just call it. You know like he's out yeah so that it shows just how common ground that we can share you know even even more you know it's all collaboration and then the the fourth habit main main principle is hopeful and the importance of skill hunting and Personal Jesus. What does that mean. Let's go hunting. I think is something I talked about as one of the greatest things I've ever done for myself yet is mastering and lots of different skills so I have like his tool belt with all these different the skills that I can whip out yeah I can play guitar can salsa dance. I can build a business. I can speak on state all the things that I was afraid to do. Yeah I started reading lists when I was younger and I said Okay I need to be afraid of this hunting to master this yeah they became skills. Not Fears is that kind of what skill hunting is. It's pretty much what it what it is. I mean I think thank you you kind of embody this. It's you know you talk about how you were failing English bestselling books and I just that that switch but the idea behind skill hunting. Is You know there's sort of like life hacking which is like sh shortcuts like the fastest asas way to productivity and then there's which is not really skill hunting. It's not skill hunting. It's like shortcuts right hacked to do it a little bit its effective and then then there's the idea of sort of more and more and more like just work until you grind it out on your successful which like I mean if you don't have a good idea. more and more and more is going to not do anything yeah and so the skill hunting SORTA lies in the middle of those which is you be really really great at a few things and then every couple years add like a new tool to the tool belt as you would describe it. Keep trying to look at skills and don't get a little hobby is like not important. Look at it as like dive deep into learn a passion like learn something really really well and that's a skill you've developed and then move on from there but don't try to do like two things at once. One year gathered these skills and that over time what does hill mastering more skills do for your persuasive is waste of abilities. Well I think first of all you have to be really really good at like two three. You have to master some skills then you can go find signed other skills but you have to really really really master some skills. There's a study recently about the most trusted person in America and it's. Tom Hanks really and I mean. He's an amazing guy who doesn't like that but who knows what kind of guy is but he seems to be very a trusting well the reason why is like he's one of the best actors ever like he he's. He's crafted his skill so that you trust him. It's why celebrity celebrity endorsements work. You know why you sell products with celebrities because they're so skill day. You're like well if they're hock in this product. I trust that they're trustworthy for the people because they've mastered the skill interesting so mastering skill. I think is is really critical to success and not trying to jump into into a gazillion things but really master two or three things and then add layer on skills after that yeah so I mean you did that with of course sports so that you that's cool so skill hunting. Mastering skills will make you more persuasive because people trust based on your skills. That is your more credible that you're more credible and trustworthy because hard working that you're consistent. You're committed you'll be you've been able to learn something and be excellent at it. Br and not just proficient but excellent and then the personal. Jesus part is adding purpose. What is your give back. What are you doing in the world. That's not just for profit or for Ego knows a lot of ego. out there and so what is the purpose peace and and how do you look at your skills and match it up with giving back so for you you know pencils of promise is something that you're really passionate. Senate about and so it's really lining you know there's an exercise in there have like whether two or three things you really skilled at what what are two or three things you care about in the world and if you stare at those two lists long enough you'll come up with an idea of how to combine those. It's why you know from an bad guy. I'm a I'm a madman right like I said advertising. I'm super skilled at that is why we took those skills to fight sexual Salton. I didn't I created a group called the creative alliance ninety companies that do social good pro bono work those are taking the skills of advertising. You wouldn't think advertising advertising where we're trying to sell products and services for profit could do good but anyone can take whatever skills they have and figure out a way to apply them. I'm going to make the world a better place and that makes you a more persuasive person. That's interesting wellman yeah cool. It's exciting the soul for art of up persuasion not just the art of persuasion. The sulfur aren't the eleven habits that will make anyone a master influence her. What's something people can do today that? ATK can make them more influential right after this into this whether they get your book can dive into all the exercises and everything or not what something can do right now to make them more influential like the like the first easy thing easiest thing that's just something they can do and the next hour where they meet the next person they talked to what something they can do differently than they don't normally do. I think the idea of not looking switching the mindset of transactional thinking is a number one quickest way and thinking about it as long the long-term viewpoint that sort of the number one thing. I would say you could do right away and anyone can do that. That's what it's a really easy thing to do so. NBC never be closing closing yeah but eventually you gotta close. Let Your Business or to get the the partner you want. You've got to ask for something right yeah. Of course you can ask you can pull not push you know that sort of the the big difference yeah. You can pull them towards you not push. I like this. I like this so they get the book an Amazon Barnes and noble. You guys have a website for the website is so full are dot com. The silver DOT COM yeah. Do you have a personal website or is there more mechanism just mechanism dot com and making the selfless salon dot COM dot com one word. It's pretty good mechanism dot com but it's with a K. right. Yes that's the difference I like it. So the book is at the soulful Art Art Dot Com yeah Do you have any bonuses or anything yeah yeah. They can download the first chapter dodger. Check it out so I like commend. This has been years in the making for you three year. Journey lots of research lots of exercises practical powerful inspiring story storytelling based book makes you guys pick this up. I've got a couple of questions for you left. This is called the three truths question all right so imagine imagine at your last day on Earth yeah a hundred two hundred years from now right and you get to live as long as that's dope. You get to live as long as you want all right but but eventually you gotta call quits in the lights the lights shut off on this experience for you and you go somewhere else and you've created everything you. WanNa create in the world. You've achieved it. All you've done anything you. WanNa do done it before. Whatever reason you've gotta take all that work with you so no one has access to this book your advertising Russian Agency. It's all not wiped off on with you to another place okay but no one has access to it okay but you get to leave behind a piece of paper that you get to right down three things you know to be true about every experience in your life that you would leave behind for the rest of us like the three lessons that you'd WanNa leave behind hindes so three things you know to be true. This is all people would have to remember you by okay. What would you say your three truth so three truce to pass on to someone one of the lessons to the World Okay Kinda like Your Your Commandments. The my career goals okay all right three of them all right number one be kind like that that mental idea of viewing the world through that filter of kindness to other people's sort of foundational. I think it's a foundational final point of view second is be yourself. You got to know one could understand you. If you don't understand yourself so you got to fully be to yourself what's number three be kind be yourself and don't live live your life by what other other people think and so. If you're making change it should be changed that you WANNA make not how it's going to impact or how what people are going to say about your change. I think that's one of the biggest regrets of the dying. I think there's an five top regrets. It's like not living my life to please other the people but to do it for me so it's really hard to do really are especially when you have kids and you've got business and you've got people that three every action impacts other people but actually it's can be be yourself and be kind and then sometimes you have to want you know yourself. You GotTa do things for you. That's all you gotta do things for you. Also let's it sit the soulful art of persuasion technology for member Jason. Because you've always been kind and generous to me. I've known you for at Lisa. Seven eight years. You've never you've never been closing. You've always been giving you've always been authentic offering.

Final question is what's what's your definition of greatness. Wow they say greatness as a process right so like you're always you're always trying to achieve that but I think you know something that I've learned which I know you've learned to. It's kind of that competitive thing where you're never happy. You're never happy like you're always like striving stressed S. Driving and I think greatness to me is comfort and where you are at all times that to me is like the definition of greatness being being wherever you are at any given time making that like the best thing that can be and that's really hard to learn yeah stepping where you're at right accepting where you're at to me is is that's what great people do. That's greatness and it's really hard in this modern era to do that because it's all about climbing and striving and moving and and and you know more and more and more but I think that that to me is like being present in accepting where you art all times is definitely my man Jason Harris.

September 2020 Trailers (Special Episode)

"All right. Welcome to a special episode of piecing together the PODCAST. We take a look at a new movie and try to figure out what movies inspired it, and today on the show is our second monthly addition of our trailers round up. We did this for the first time last month for the movies coming out in August, and now it is time to look at the movies coming out in. September. We've got six trailers. We're GONNA look at it, and just do a couple of puzzle pieces each just based on what we think these movies. Look like they're going to possibly be inspired by based on their trailers and just the general synopsis and what's known about them so far going into it, and then we'll see some of them. We end up doing full episodes on as we get further into the month of September and some of them, this might just be all we end up covering them for so. You know it's a fun new way of looking at new movies and I'm always excited to find new ways to grow the show and do new things new side series like are missing pieces and breaking it apart and all that, and so it's great to find. Things. New Fun things to do with this format. So. Join me again is Jason Harris from awesome movie year. He did this episode with me last month and I think he'll probably be kind of a go to guy for these trailer episodes he talking about what's coming soon, and so we had a lot of fun talking about these movies. So I do want to let you know that awesome movie year is currently in its Fifth Season Nineteen, seventy seven and you should go check that podcast out wherever you listen to podcasts and while you're at it, make sure subscribe to piecing it together. We are both available on all the podcast APPS, apple podcasts, spotify tune in Stitcher podcasts. Find it wherever you listen to podcasts and subscribe. You can also rate and review uh on apple podcasts or pod chaser and follow piecing it together on social media at Piecing Pod and make sure to join our facebook group popcorn and puzzle pieces where we continue the conversation about all of these movies and a whole lot more going on in the world of pop culture. So. Without any further ado, let's get into our second trailer episode. Ra joining me for another trailer extravaganza. It's Jason Harris from awesome movie or has it Gone Jason? Hey it's the same day as every day. We're doing that again we're. We're just we're repeating the structure over again as we're going to mean in a way it kind of fits for at least one of the movies that were talking about today but I think so. Yeah, it could We could be doing this once a month once a week once a day. What's the difference anymore Dave I feel like. So you message me like an hour ago and you're like, do you want to add in any superhero movies and I I want to keep this to? You know the month that's coming up that way we can kinda theme at around what's come in the next month thing but it seems like we're going to be talking for the next couple of weeks about this Batman trailer. Do you WanNa talk about it for a second before we start? Yeah. My favorite thing about the Batman trailer is who would have guessed dave save like nineteen eighty, three that you would have been like, Hey, guess, what in thirty years, all the superhero movies are going to be based on these dark Martin Scorsese Gritty traumas from the seventies and eighties you know. That's insane. Isn't it? The big thing with with joker was you know what does it say about society you know but what to say about society when the hero is also based on taxi driver I mean. Obviously, the King of comedy feel and taxi driver Swab. It looks it looks great. Yeah. We'll see we'll see how how it goes. You're know you're a Robert Pattinson fan boy how sure am I? Am You know what else I liked about the trailer though is how ends instead of having a date it has question Mark Zero Question Mark One I'm guessing a pun based on all of the shifting release dates right now. Do you think that's what they're going I think so I think I think you're right I'm wondering how much darker they can make these superhero movies. Between Joker in this one, it's like you know at some point he's got to become the villain right at some seems like it sure seems like I like that would fit in very well with with modern politics with. Rich, people in the bad guys a lot of the time. As you know on awesome movie or we just covered New York New York, not our favorite Scorsese movie. So maybe there will be some type of superhero musical coming up based on that one that we can look forward to I. Think. I. Think that's in the stars hopefully but. Let's get onto some of these movies. I had a lot of fun last month doing this and I. We've got six movies to talk about today. The first trailer we're going to talk about is a movie called critical thinking that's coming out September four I-. Unsure if it's going to be Vod same day as theatrical, but they are trying to do at the article and then I'm assuming, Vod, the same time it's directed by John Leguizamo and stars him and What did you think about this one is kind of a drama a little different from anything that we were covering last month. This is that typical like adult in? Maybe it's a little different because you know there is no white savior in this one but this is the savior going into the inner city teaching kids a skill they might not otherwise realize they had and. Then, fighting an administration, you know to let kids like reach their potential with it. In this case, it's chess and there are some cool stories about like chess clubs around the country is in inner cities like this based on issues story right where right you know if people have access, they can succeed and. Really really showcase. Amazing skills so Does this I think we've seen this movie seven thousand times before we have and I'm curious. I. Mean. He has only directed one other movie a TV movie like fifteen sixteen years ago I'm wondering what made him decide like aside for money but This is the movie to to direct to direct for myself but I guess we'll find out what what do you think like? Obviously, you're kind of skating around a puzzle piece there with the whole white savior coming to the inner city kind of thing even though is not white in this but what do you think as far as possible puzzle pieces here we want to start with them and there's so many of those white savior ones. I I've never seen this movie but IRA freedom writers when Hilary Swank where she goes doesn't she start like poetry club or something like that on Or Creative Writing Club you know all things that minorities would never know about unless nice white suburban lady came in right. So that's that was the first one. That came to mind but there's so many you could just throw a dart at the white savior billboard and pick any one of them. Sure. Absolutely. Yeah. I on mine I have dangerous minds which of course, is like the courtesy of that. And you know I think it's I think it's well intentioned and we'll see if there's any kind of twist on that story that's being you know explored here but. It's you know a well-intentioned. Average long well, I mean, you know we're giving the genre a lot of crappy because of it but like. The real people who actually go and. Start like chess club in places that don't have them. They're awesome. You like that you know. So it's like This one does look very paint by numbers of like you know what would the administration can give x amount of money to football, but I can't take these kids on a chest trip to expand their minds. Louis, believe it or do you have any other any other pieces for I mean going the other way? I mean I was thinking we should we should go for a chess movie. You know. So the one I picked was fresh from the nineties. And It's it's a cool in the. Young Prodigy chess movie. But also has. Intercity elements. Sure. Yeah. That was actually my other who who else so. Totally and it's funny I hadn't seen that movie since it came out and I had to like wrack my brain trying to figure out what it was like googling like chess intercity trying to figure it out I couldn't remember the name of it. That's a long it had been but but yeah, I remember that being like a good movie at the time and it's you know interesting topic. Well. Admittedly I never saw it. So but I didn't know the name of it. So I mean you could have gotten searching for Bobby Fischer? You gone the blindside something. There's a few other opposite interesting or ones that kind of fit this one music from the heart all that stuff so. This this is I know you're doing this in kind of chronological order of what's coming out when I thought of all the ones we're covering this month. This is the the one I could care about the least. Yeah I think that's fair. But let's move onto the next one, which also looks just okay. But on the same day September fourth coming to video D it's called the owners and. A. Horror Movie. Written directed by Julius Berg the only person I recognized stars in his mazy. Williams but. It looks like this kind of like home invasion thriller that gets twisted and turned on its head. What did you think about this one? I was interested in it I think it looks okay. Like you said, it's Bungee Young Teens China rob they go and they robbed the wrong house and they have to pay the price man, right? That's that's what happens when you mess with the wrong old people. Yeah. Yeah. It seems like there might be a supernatural element in this one will see so Sablan what he got lost his on this one. Okay. I'm going to pick an underrated movie of. Young robbers I'd say the blinkering Sofia Coppola is. Years. Back. Which tells the story of teenagers in the Hollywood hills robbing other rich people. and. It doesn't really get turned on them like this thing as I think a bunch of them went to jail or whatnot but. Demo, is great and we know she's got a new one coming out with Bill Murray soon. So sure that'll be cool but other lingering was the first one I. Thought of. Yeah absolutely. I. One I thought of you said, you know young robbers and gets turned on their head like that is exact setup for feddie. Alvarez's don't breathe which I think is a very solid as far as modern like horror movie concepts go i. think it it really it really delivered on the promise of its concept, and hopefully this does to hopefully it. It has some interesting directions and unpredictable directions that it goes and stuff like that and yeah, don't breathe my first one I. Don't know that movie I liked you picked it because I'm not familiar with it and I'm like, how did I even miss it? This is the thing and so it's a messed up movie. Cool. Well, look if you WANNA talk about messed up. Where people try to? Invade other people's homes and they get their come up. The original, the og of it, the all time classic Sam, Peckinpah Straw dogs. That is one of my favorite movies and men to those people get. There's throughout the movie. Yeah. I think that to be an inspiration for anyone making home invasion movies. Yeah. So I know they did a remake a few years ago which I didn't see and I could see one like the impetus to do it to like the original. So amazing and can you imagine I think it was like sixty eight? Can you imagine when that came out? What does happen? Like this so that Just a highly highly highly recommended film. So. My other piece that I was going to mention not as highly recommended but hit is m night shamans the visit which a lot of people really seem to like like it was kind of held as a return to form for him. I. Didn't like it that much. But just the idea of the of a horror movie where the the villains things to be scared of are these seemingly. Like quaint old people but they're creepy as hell. Well, it's funny. You mentioned that because on my list that I didn't say was get out for that same kinda reason where it's like sure people seem so normal and then. You know there's no robbery the people get out are just horrible racists you know. But they seem like Nice. Normal people at the beginning right now was similar thinking right there Dave toss some awesome. Felt a little panic room. Did you get that? Yes absolutely. I was almost going to put that on my list. Yeah. We look at. Keeping in sync right now we're mind melding today. This is great. Well No let's see. Dave can even get through the talking about this next one without. Having some type of sexual climax. To See what happens my number one los anticipated movie of the Year of course I'm thinking of ending things from Charlie Kaufman coming out September fourth on Net flicks of all places but I cannot wait this is this is first movie since two thousand, fifteen anomalies of which itself was something. He didn't even really WANNA make at first like he was kind of. Almost forced to make that whereas his last like full ground project with synthetic New York two, thousand eight, which is just absolutely insane that it's been that long. But it looks like it's totally Charlie. Kaufman even though it's it's adapted from a book. It still looks like it's completely got him all over. It's got that weirdness that just total strange and even though this one's going to go a little more horror than his other projects, it's also just looks like it's going to be funny and weird and just very Charlie Calvin it i. didn't really get a vibe from it but. Yeah. This was a tough one to put pieces there unless you're counting other pieces of him you know but I tried not to do that. So but yeah, we're all excited for it and anomalies was a good movie by the way I'll hell. Yeah. So the first one that I thought of is at an actual that you and I have covered this year on your podcast piecing together because. You know what is going on? This is very interesting because David the beginning we joked or I joked about how every day feels the same everything This kind of time loopy thing is very much in the Zeitgeist right now I think. It is in all this stuff was made before the pandemic. So it's so strange and that's happening but so palm springs was my first one. Awesome. Yeah. I could see that just like that just being stuck and there's no way out of that kind of a strange situation where you're just not sure what's up and what's down kind of thing. But yeah, it is weird that we're getting a lot of that during this particular moment in time and that's very interesting thing. My first one is a movie we discussed on your podcast this year it is eraserhead and I thought of the whole dinner sequence with the way that just super weird meeting the family here in. Toni Collette and David Doulos and yes i. that's a movie that I had not watched like really ever like I think I said on the show like I think I'd watched it back when I was a kid or something but it had been forever But obviously, it's freaking weird. As Hell. Racer head. So don't even try and so. I want to either I'm going wonder if two direction can I do a TV show or? You, want me to stick with films here you TV show if you want I got a TV show on one of my upcoming ones so. Okay. Well, I mentioned Russian doll before which is you know great and everyone should watch it. So that was one but the other one which I'm in the middle of which is amazing and I know. We have mutual compadres who like it is dark on Netflix's the German show holy cow. I can't get enough of this thing. It is so good. It's this Kinda supernatural time travel early twisting tale of missing people and. Murder and every episode is better than the last. It's just the best the best show like I've seen. Well. Since watchmen, which was also awesome and some somewhat plays with time and space also. Yeah. I haven't watched it yet, but I have heard great things about it and sounds like it strikes a similar tone here. And I know I shouldn't have to say this to film people but watch it with the subtitles. You will have no problem getting staying on pace with them and. Let the German actors really express themselves because. It's awesome. It's it's amazing way does it give you an option for like dubbed? Is that way? Okay. Okay. Well, the other piece I was going to point to is hereditary because we've got Tony collect going back into creepy crazy mom mode for this and so that'll be fun to see because that performance is just so amazing. And I gave you. A little, a little jostling narrative beginning but we all like Charlie Kaufman and this looks great. This looks like so just out there I'm very excited for this me too me too. So the next movie, another netflix film, and this one is just absolutely stacked with its cast. It's called the devil all the time it's coming out September sixteenth and it looks like some kind of like like southern gothic horror not hard but like thriller kind of. Situation a lot of like religious undertones and just over the top like with the performances and I know it just it looks absolutely fantastic. But I'm a little worried though because this is the kind of movie that I look forward to so much. But then when it's like a streaming exclusive, that kind of I worry like maybe doesn't get all of the You know the development time that it needs and stuff like that. Hopefully hopefully, it comes out fully baked. I'm going to disagree with you I. Think you know Netflix's proven that they let the creators really showcase. Stories they they want to tell as they want to tell them so. I know you're looking for excuses because it's got Robert Pattinson in there and you can let. You know. What was he team? Edward was he team Edward I don't even know that. But you know he looks like he's he's definitely not going for any subtlety in his performance now, not at all, he knows what kind of character he's playing he's going. Well. So you mentioned the religious undertones and it kind of had this kind of. Even cultish feeling to it. So I I. Pick was the master Paul Thomas Anderson, which also environment plays a big part in that and you could tell on this the environments essential to it. So I didn't love that movie. I know it's so review. It's so polarizing people either love it or just like what the Heck Bro. I was one of what the heck people but this definitely had those type of. CM. Type of feelings for me. Yeah. Definitely. a little bit of the master could see that especially Philip Seymour Hoffman, his performance and what Robert Pattinson is doing. kind of feel like that. Same kind of gopher broke -ness of them also maybe a little bit of there will be blood in there as well as far as setting his concerns but I speak in Philip Seymour. Hoffman I'm GonNa go with the movie doubt where there is a religious figure who may or may not be involved in something terrible and the you know it's really played close to the vest the mystery of it. All of you know what exactly is going on and I think that this is going to be some of the kind of movie that keeps you guessing the whole runtime. That's a memorable film I know that's based on the play I forget if it was John Patrick Shanley or you know stoddart whoever was But yeah. That is a memorable film and what I also like about that movie is that. The ending is open for interpretation. Right. Oh You know this this could be as well. We'll have to see. My next puzzle piece is a great movie that again utilizes this kind of environment. To the hilt and I feel like they're like we don't really know but there's definitely some type of crime element in this movie. So I went with Taylor Sheridan hell or high water. Nice. Yeah. I could totally see that and I was almost going to go with. With a little bit not Tyler Sheridan who's the other guy? Jeff Nichols like that kind of same kind of southern feeling. Earlier yeah, and hell or high water is more Western or southwestern this story straight southern. But I know what you're saying you're yeah mud. There's something like that is it really fits in environment. Yeah. I have a feeling. It's GonNa, have a great score too. I was also thinking that first season of true detective. That's my next piece. Sorry. All Good August. Yeah. No you get exactly that the southern gothic thriller and You know definitely the like you said, the setting absolutely is a major part of it and it looks like there might may be some. kind of metaphysical kind of stuff mixed into the plot here. So I guess we'll find out though, yeah, that effort season masterful and You know I don't know of anyone can top performances by. And Harrelson in this thing, but we'll. Hey man good good stuff coming to Netflix's since September absolutely, I got to admit that. Well next up this one is going to be on Vod on September eighteenth. It's a comedy, our first comedy this thing well, straight comedy anyway but it's called Kajillions air and it looks like it's about a kind of messed up family who gets into some criminal elements in order to make money because that is what's the most important thing in life after all is being a kajillions air. So what did you think this trailer Oh my God it looked so good I didn't think anything would. Here, the six one of them's Charlie Kaufman thing, right? I Don I. wouldn't think like anything would excite me as much as that. But I'm just as excited for this one Miranda July right very good storyteller. Just the. Color Palette that she plays with is it looks Just looks awesome. I can't wait for the students. So the first one I picked was. One of the more fun Films about crime and Capers and That was Steven. Spielberg's catch me if you can sure. Yeah, I can see that having fun with the whole getaway and the we don't know exactly how much it's going to lean into the the criminal element. How much is GonNa lean into the family element until we see this thing but yeah, it's it's it's interesting to see how it's going to go there. Yeah. I just thought like you know they did a good job of making the quote unquote bad guy like a very likable good guy and like I, really like all the people that. They all seem like super interesting in this movie. So. So I'm going to go for my first piece I with something one of the characters says and the trailer, which is my favorite movies are the oceans eleven movies. As I was hoping, you wouldn't do that boo. Cover. It works works. I haven't seen the movie yet. What what what I'm giving here. On this pick. Well. What do you got for your next lead screw it. Fine if you on it so my thought was like, okay, here's. Bill. A family that commits crime together. Right. So I went with animal kingdom a very. Far More. Rugged and rough film that was adapted to American TV. But we're talking about the Australian based on a true story Indie film from a couple of years ago and. It's Ron dirty and It's good and they don't mention it in the trailer here. So I actually did my work you got to watch the trailer I think that they had like a poster in the background and so. The other one I was going to bring up is When Richard Jenkins is talking about like skimming a little bit of money off the top and all that I just thought of the the space and their whole little get rich quick scheme and so you. Kinda just messed up comedy crime thing. Yeah. I mean I was going to go actually until you said Ocean's eleven angered me. I Was Lady Bird because of the family dynamics their. Sense Yeah. That's kind of feeling of this family for sure right. So think office spaces of much more inspired pick for you dave. Thank you. I'm just GONNA give you lady bird or American animals is your other pig. Beautiful. Well, what what more movie to look at and that is a movie I didn't realize it was on our list I didn't realize it was just a teaser that's out so far I mean it's coming out and less than a month but September twenty third net flicks is in Nola Homes A. Spin on the Sherlock Holmes story with its Sherlock, Holmes his sister, right So. Like this to me is so smart just so easy and it's like a one sentence thing and you get the whole movie from we watched a one minute teaser knows. Why hasn't anyone done this before? Like and it looks like it could be fun. Maybe it won't be who knows but it looks it looks fun you now. So Yeah I thought. Yeah you're right. It's Sherlock Holmes sister. So I'm sure your first pickers guy, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes. Well, listen here. Okay. I'll go first then in that case. Well I don't have it on my list so it doesn't matter I. You know. I wasn't going to go with Charlotte, Home Specifically Bu- Guy Ritchie just as John, right I was going to go because it's got a lot of that just fast paced. Quick cutting kind of thing that Guy Ritchie does and a lot of his movies. So yes, Guy Ritchie. Yes. Sherlock Holmes, but that's not the piece of. All right I think you've saved that one I got my dig on you but you also. Handled yourself nicely. So I did something similar but I was like, Oh, I like this idea of. Someone's you know. Famous person siblings so I wouldn't read clause. Which? I don't think anyone in the world like. You Know Hey I know the homes in Fred Claus. Perfect couple in today's world right? Jason Harris Red Claws Fan. I know that Howard I said. I'm not recommending that or freedom riders in this. Okay. Well Yeah I could totally see. Finding the less famous sibling and making a movie about that. By the way I I don't know I don't know if you're much of a reader. Is this a character like a real character from the books? I don't I am a reader but I'm not a reader of Sir Arthur CONAN doyle. So I can't answer that but it's played by Millie Bobby Brown hair and she looks just delightful and she's so much fun in stranger things. So Hey, man one is stranger things coming back I'm ready. I still haven't watched the third season so well, now's the time. Dave. I. Guess. So well, my other piece I mean. Obviously, some kind of a gender swapped action movie and I figured Oceans Eight would be kind of the perfect one for that. As far as you know, the kind of tone in the the fun action kind of over the top. There you go. Dave and they didn't mention the ocean movies in the preview. So I think that's a valid pick here. So all right gray I redeemed myself multiple times I here. All. Right. If that's how you see. Okay, my loss pick is from again. It's a Sofia Coppola Day here for Jason Harris of did you notice the background music in this? Teaser here I. Didn't what was it seemed like some type of classical hundreds one hundred years two hundred years ago take. On. Whole. So make me over. Right. That yeah you're one hundred percent I did I did notice that but didn't notice that. So yeah no, that's great. I love that and if I'm not mistaken, Marie Antoinette. Did a lot of that stuff sure to talk about an underrated movie that is worth three watching And is beautiful to look at so and also this kind of has that you know. Young. Female Ingenue? kind of protagonist. Reentered no spoilers here did not solve any crimes at her but. That's the music. made me brought me back to Marie Antoinette. So I went with that for sure for sure. Well, we'll be talking about Soviet couple more next month when we do this series again, with her new movie that's coming to Apple TV but I think that does it for today Jason You watch anything recently, you want to recommend to our listeners have we talked about Dave, any of the ones that we watch from last month on the list because you watch most of them right? Sure I, we could make that a part of this I mean, we did episodes on you and I did in American pickle and neither of US liked to yeah neither of us. Liked it the tax collector I didn't episode on it was not very good. What else was there? Tesla I'm hoping to watch maybe tomorrow actually I hear it's pretty good. For. Your review, on that we both watched I used to go here which we thought pretty was just kind of yeah. A familiar premise didn't deliver right and I don't know it. was there anything else said from our list on the last month there what was the o Spinster? I still haven't watched. And project our. Our show. Yeah I had I had the exact kind of fun with project power that I expected to on our trailer episode was dumb as Hell but it had its moments as just a silly over the top action movie. Well, I mean seemed honestly I would watch five out of the six of these very happily I don't really watch critical thinking but Jeevan is title it's like really get out but. I think and two of these I'm super excited for have I watched anything great recently well, I'm I I mentioned dark. That's kind of where I'm at right now just kind of immersed in dark so. I think that's it for me recently. Dave Sadly I. Unlike you I had to catch up on the bill and Ted Movies I. I, usually do a recommendation. I was talking to you before we hit record about that Penn fifteen which. is coming back this month in. September. So so we're we're both talking about streaming series, which is interesting. Neither of US have recommended movies but were stuck in a pandemic Jason. All the time we can get I'm waiting for it to get dark out. So I can continue watching by show 'cause I don't WanNa Watch. Out there you go. But I know, hey, that's good. Dave it's always good and We'll do this again today tomorrow next month whatever it's the same thing.

Piecing It Together Podcast

August 2020 Trailers (Special Episode)

"All right. Welcome to a special episode of piecing it together the podcast where we take a look at new movie and try to figure out what movies inspired it, and today on the show we are doing something new something special. We are not doing our usual format although it is tied to our usual format. What we're doing for the first time is taking a look forward at some upcoming movies that are. Coming out soon, actually coming out this coming month August two, thousand twenty and applying the puzzle pieces treatment to these movies just based on their trailers and what we think they look like and the idea we've gotten from the trailer just the general feeling these movies seemed to be giving off and you know maybe once they do come out, we will get around to doing some episodes on them and see if we. If our first thoughts were correct with these puzzle pieces. But regardless, it's going to be a fun way to look at what is coming soon and I am really looking forward to doing it for this first one we've got Jason Harris joining me and you guys know him. He's been on the show a bunch of times and you also know him from awesome movie year and we had a great conversation talking about six upcoming movies. August is really stacked. Lots of great movies coming out what we don't know if they're great movies, lots of. Interesting looking movies coming out. So we had a lot to pick from, but we picked six and we're GONNA get into some trailer talk. So before we get into that, I want to remind you to make sure you're subscribed to piecing together and your podcast APP. Of Choice you can reduce over on apple podcasts or Pod chaser and follow us on social media at Piecing Pod and I suggest if your facebook you come join our facebook group popcorn and puzzle pieces where we continue the conversation about all the movies that we talk about on the show. And I'm sure there will be lots of conversations about some of these movies in the coming months. So let's get into this conversation who? Jason Harris, how's it going, man? Dave I'm okay. How about you? I'm good I'm doing well, and I am excited to look forward to some new movies with you. This is a new thing and I'm excited for you to be the first one to do it with me I am honored and Dave. As you know, you will not be going to any movie theaters to see any of these. I am the advocate of the streamer so. Good guest for this one. That's part of the reason. I. Picked You Jason I. Obviously I am not exactly happy that not all these. Some of these would have went straight to streaming. In the first place they were produced that way. But a lot of these would have gotten at least a small theatrical release and I'm not happy about the fact I. Don't get to see him in a theater but his life right now, I can't just complain about it every episode I gotTa move forward and just enjoy these movies as they come. You know Dave as you know an awesome movie, we cover all these different movies. I feel like you were alive in one, thousand, nine, twenty, seven, you would have been like. This with Al Jolson, doing a toppy, what Obama silent film I don't want any changes. I liked things the way the way they used to be is the way that we put today we're we're making a big change piecing it together just for this special episode, which if it works, maybe we'll do a monthly or something, but we're going to take our puzzle pieces approach to looking at movies and talk about some trailers for upcoming movies. All of these happened to be coming out this coming month in August twenty, twenty, some. Of them are on Vod. I'll tell where they're going to be coming and win but all of them are either on Vod net flicks, Hbo Max, What One of the streamers, and so you're going to be able to watch this. You're not going to have to venture out into the theater and risk your life or anything. It is something to watch at home, and so we're going to kind of guess what these movies are inspired by just. Just by by looking at it and we're going to keep them a little bit breeds is going to be five six pieces. We're just going to do two pieces a little. It looks like this meets this and see how the conversation goes and I think we're going to kick this thing off I. Decided Jason, I didn't tell you this added time, but I'm GonNa do these chronologically in release order. So the first one on our list is actually the last one that you said we should add on it wasn't on the original list and that's an American pickle, which is coming out on August sixth on Hbo Max. Star. Seth Rogan and Looks Pretty Damn Funny Yeah does look It looks interesting if not that hilarious. But like one of those comedic emotional family journeys there. So where Seth Rogan plays an old man who is Encased in a pickle brine. I guess frozen for one hundred years and he then he gets on Brian and is living again now in the time of talkies and streamers Dave and. He meets his grandson and they go on some type of. Emotional journey together, his grandson who has also played by Seth right and. Looks. Like the kind of guy who would love streaming movies for free in his apartment but. Aside from that what do you got for your two pieces for this? What do you think this movie? Kind of reminds you based on the trailer? I didn't less about the trailer and more about like different movies that have made me feel like so I picked encino man because of course that is. I don't think this is totally like that at all other than that is as comedic. But. You know that is about a a man from another time who has to live in the current time and space, and then the second one I of course, picked was fiddler on the roof because Seth Rogan plays. Nine thousand nine, hundred. And Eastern European from the nineteen hundreds and that always reminds me of fiddler on. Absolutely. I think those are great choices for this thing. I hadn't thought of Filler on the roof, but that definitely fits with the Seth Rogan thing I did think of Encino man which is on my list as well. I find it really funny though that Encino man is a caveman and frozen for thousands and thousands of years it such a big culture shock this one hundred years which I think is a pretty funny distinction between. Between that, and this is just a little bit less of a major shock but based on the culture clash is going to easily multiply that that only hundred year culture shock. The other one I was going to use and like you said, you are right. It doesn't seem like it's going to be total like crazy over the top. Funny. But I still put down the Sacha Baron Cohen Film Borat because it does seem like we're GONNA get a lot of like little bits of eastern European fish out of water weird kind of comedy and they're mixed in as well. All right. Hey. Since we're talking about it, how `bout a blast from the past wasn't that one where dude for sixties was. Transported to today or something like that or yes networks because it's again it's like it's that that bringing somebody into the current time, but it's it's not that big of a jump. You know what I mean that's interesting place to come from. But yeah, those are cool. You know one last note before we move onto the next one. The Director Brandon Trust. Again, we talked about this just recently on our episode on Palm Springs. It's another first time filmmaker, the this Guy Brandon trust he is a cinematographer on like a ton of comedy is a lot of Seth Rogan comedies. This is the end and like a Lotta that stuff but I I'm making a feature film and it's Kinda cool that Seth Rogan came along for the ride. It looks good. Just, to warn you Dave I have four pieces on every single one, but I'll try to edit to myself till two. But if you want more extras than I can give them to you for anyone of them. So squeezing is far as much as you want. I I will I'm not even GONNA edit. They're just going to allow that to happen. Okay. So here where the two others I thought earn American pickle it's a grandson who are grandfather who obviously has dead relatives because of his journey through time in space. So interstellar. Yeah this is very Nolan ask. Let's say and then I thought what's my favorite or a great movie between a grandparent and a grand kid and I went with little Miss Sunshine over dirty GRANDPA. Okay. All right. I could see that. Okay. So we'll. We'll add those couple of extra ones in here and there, but let's move onto the next movie alright and This one is going to be hitting Vod I think it was originally planned for theatrical release, but probably a smaller one but it's it's called Spinster. It's coming out on August seventh and starts Chelsea Peretti as a woman who's dealing with you know the issues of. Dating and all that kind of stuff a little bit later in life and along with trying to open a restaurant it seems and it looks like a nice little spin on the com, which I know is a big John for you do love the Rom Com but I didn't love this preview. Okay all right. It wasn't. It wasn't wasn't your cup of tea No I thought it looked fun. It looks like it's either going to be like like you're right. Maybe it'll be good or it looks like they're trying to fit in a hundred different things here like i WanNa do business and now I'm going to hang out with my niece and also dating and it's like. Are, we not focused or is there too much of too many things going on I don't know but this was clearly inspired by previews using the cranberries song dreams and temper trap's sweet disposition. You probably don't even have to see movie as long as you hear those songs or watch previews utilizing those songs, you know the movie, I actually do have movies but that's that's the first thing that I thought of when I watched this like. Why are one of those songs being used right now that absolutely would would evoke the same feeling that you get from this trailer one hundred percent agree All right. Well, what what movies do you I mean I thought and I never saw this movie but I remember Jennifer Lopez was the wedding planner and they're like, how can you plan winnings but you're not married and it's like Yeah Jennifer Lopez can't get a date at why But they basically say the same thing in this one like right isn't she like a wedding caterer something like, Oh, I don't trust my. Wedding to be catered if you're not even married or something like that right. So I add that wedding planner and I put this sporty the APP Dow movie because. This is this is her forty. So access is how live in her life I think that yeah, I think that's a good one and this is forty I think it definitely seems to be trying to tap into that feeling of of not old age that middle age of like you know kind of just dealing with still being out there and all that. For for for mine that I was GONNA list. First of all, I thought of always be my maybe the net flicks ROM com, which you know it's a a traditionally funny person getting a chance to headline her her movie and also working in the restaurant industry as well along with the dating. So I just thought that kind of fit and the other one is in a world which again, another traditionally funny person is usually funny in. In smaller roles, getting to headline a movie and mixing the Romantic aspects with the. With, her career choices and an interesting career I like in a world. That's a good movie. But that's the one with the movie trailer daddy daughter. But I don't ever think of Lake Bellas like a comedic actress just straight up I mean, she does comedy but I think of her just across the board like not Chelsea Peretti whose exclusive to comedy sure yeah. I guess I've only ever seen like bill comedic things but but yeah, certainly Chelsea Peretti is like straight up comedy person I've never actually seen Brooklyn nine nine by the way. Do you I watched for a few seasons it's good and she's funny. You should watch it my two other movies for this one crazy stupid love and train wreck. Let's move on. Our okay let's do it. So moving on let's go on the same day, August seventh which by the way this is a big day. The next one's going to be that too but it's called I used to go here again I think of first time filmmaker Chris Wray starring Gillian Jacobs Dramane Clemen Hannah marks who has recently in banana split and it's about a writer whose new book isn't. Doing so well. So she accepts an offer to speak at her old college and ends up kind of regressing back to her old college ways. What did you think about this trailer I kinda liked it. I'm interested I like movies like this. You know where you're trying to fix your present by you know patching up things that you might have to in the past or. Run away from your problems in the present by a moving back to your ways in the past. So sure. So we're pieces. I picked a obviously see the wonder boys had picked wonder boys. You know which is You know of an interesting a great movie about a Michael Douglas and Tobey Maguire about. A writing professor and a writing student. In college and their weird relationship and then Here's a movie. I bet you haven't seen called Mr Roosevelt. Have you ever seen Mr Roosevelt's I. Remember it. I never saw though it's with. Noel Wells who is on SNL for a season and she's really good in this movie and she's a comedian living in l. a. and her life falling apart or an actor. I'd say IN LA and she goes back to her hometown of Austin and kind of reconnect with. Her hometown. So those are the two that I picked right on. Well, I am going to go with first of all old school, which obviously seems a little bit more subdued and that it's not gonna get as ridiculous and crazy but certainly I thought of the Adult. Going back to college and kind of ending up letting loose and sure getting into that lifestyle again, and I am not sure about this one necessarily. But I also thought of Young Adult Charlie's Ron and just like kind of the this person who Hasn't quite. You. Know maybe their. Potential was and going back and. You know kind of just really getting into it. Yeah. That's that's all good. One other movie that that's Kinda reminded me of, which is different, which is about someone who goes back to their high school reunion but they're old hometown Grosse Pointe Blank, which is one of my favorite movies ever and totally I, think other than the hitman mercury stuff but the stuff about trying to workout your past this one seems to hit that somewhat totally and that movies. Amazing. Yeah I love Gillian Jacobs. So I'm really looking forward to this one. I think. It's GonNa. Be Pretty Damn Fun. So now, we're going something completely different than Those two we are going to David Eyres the tax collector which was definitely planned for theatrical, but it's coming August seventh vod. It's Based around these Los Angeles gangs and drug gangs and all that and Shiloh buff plays A. Sort of. Latino character, there's been a lot of controversy about that. He definitely plays a Latino character. Doesn't he? Yeah I think. So yeah, I what he's doing I don't know for sure but as far as these kind of movies go David Air definitely. Definitely makes them and they have an audience for this and so I have a feeling that this is going to go over well with fans of this kind of thing. What did you think of this one? It looked interesting I'm GonNa Watch, it 'cause like like you said like, I mean he's made like end of watch was a good movie you know and sure. But at the same time, this could be horribly misguided effort. Rosary receive I. And Shiloh boo food looks like he's giving it his all here. It's like. Maybe this doesn't work in twenty twenty, but we'll have to see right. So He's been on a roll lately. So I'm. Really excited for it back when I first heard about it and. The trailer certainly isn't bad. So I mean I'm definitely going to be watching it. I just Yeah. I hope it doesn't go to. Awesome last year. So Oh, so good. So good. I mean obviously when you think of La and gangs and like this kind of gritty. Stylistic piece you come you come to training day. So sure that was my first one. There you know. But then zone, Ethan, Hawke, and then. The other one that I thought of was a lesser known movie with Anne Hathaway and I think Bijou Phillips where they play like to you know rich white girls in La who wanna like live dangerously and start like dating and hanging out with like Mexican gangsters, which again I don't know how well that holds up and that movies called havoc. So those were the two that I had my extra and this one. Is a SICARIO which just reminded me of stylistically. All right. Well, you got connections to both in my picks here because first of all, of course, David Air wrote training day and I honestly I mean this is such a cheap but David era films in general I mean training. Day. Got Bright even even though there's no mystical crap going on in this I mean it still has that feeling even suicide squad to a degree. You know just getting into that like deep and dirty kind of like is this what gangs are like? I don't really know about that but maybe And, then as you brought up Sicario, I was going to bring up. So Cario way of the soul data. Oh, the sequel, which is a much less successful film. It kind of gets that feeling of like. Almost like a Fox, news looking at the gang situation in like like this is how bad should is and you should be scared and hide your kids you know. Kids Hide Your Wife. That's right. I never saw the second one because Sicario the first one is so amazing and I heard the second one is not and I was like I don't WanNa ruin it. It's so bad but. So let's move on to the following weekend, and we're getting to a Netflix film is coming out August fourteenth it's called project power, and this is an action movie starring Jamie and Joseph Gordon Levitt, and it basically looks like it's I I'm hearing it described as a superhero movie. I didn't realize it was a superhero movie but. Basically, there's like these drugs that you take and they seem to give you some kind of super abilities for five minutes at a time, and it just looks like a total like balls of the woods called Viagra. Why bring on the stand up comedian Gosh. In four hours, then you might be Aki Comedian A. All my doctor be called the hookers. So what do you got for your sister? This was the first thing I thought it was limitless with Bradley Cooper, which then became a TV show where you take the and your your mind expands and you can do all these things and then you know the government comes after you or something, and the second one I thought of I was thinking about like when was the last good action movie I saw Jamie Fox in and that would be Michael Mann's collateral. So which is great movie with him and Tom Cruise. So those are the two that I picked for this one. Yeah. I hadn't thought of collateral definitely I did think limitless as well. I. I haven't seen limitless, but I certainly know of and names to be a similar thing. Yeah. That's kind of what I heard. I. M. I, right from only watched the trailer, the one time and I like a random superpower, you get from these pills or do they do they know what's going to happen when they take it? I watch I I'm not sure if it was exactly clear I think it was just a you could fuck people up. I don't. Think it's like I can fly for five minutes or I mean I didn't get that. Maybe it would be that would be interesting but it seemed like it was just like, Oh, I can. Crush People's faces with my fists now or something like that today go. Yeah. Well, the the other one I thought of and not a very successful movie but maybe the last big blockbuster the anyone will ever see in the theater if movies never come back but it is Vin diesels bloodshot. Because it does have the same kind of thing where you are being upgraded into. Basically. It I I don't know if you actually watched that movie, but it's no point. You really understand like, okay. What is his powers? Just he can do absolutely any and everything he needs to do at any given moment in the script. Oh, I could fly because I need to fly right now our own bulletproof because I'm GonNa be bulletproof right now it seems like they're just throwing superpowers at these people in this movie Which? Can Be. Fun. You were the only one who saw that movie do. Yeah. Probably. I. Will Say this does Look Pretty Fun. I mean I think most of the Netflix action movies have been just kind of Drek a this kind of looks fun. Did you watch the old guard? The last one? I haven't. Yeah I heard it's not too good but I mean, I, haven't watched it either but they're saying it's like one of the top ten viewed. Movies Netflix's history already which they say a lot about a lot of movie. Yeah. That could be a whole nother conversation there. There's no. There's there's no accountability whatsoever there. Okay. We got one last one to talk about, and that is Tesla which comes out on August twenty first is going to be on Vod again, probably would have been theaters I'd Imagine Stars Ethan, Hawke Nikola Tesla, and Kyle mclachlan. Edison has jim calf again in there and bunch of other people and there's well, it's a story of Nikola Tesla trying to bring his electric electric invention to the forefront and dealing with the kind of competition away with Edison and all these other inventor people in his path and. Looks Kinda interesting although this kind of bio pic kinda sometimes maybe gets a little I. Don't know you just you don't know whether it's GonNa go a certain direction where it gets very Hollywood, he and stuff you know. But what did you think of this one? What I like is it looks like it's not going to tell the story in a straightforward manner. So but I did think about that because one of the movies that I didn't put on the list was that what was the one about Alan Turing with? Benedict cumberbatch a few years ago is that on your list? It is on my list, the imitation game, which I did not like very much but I did get a little bit of vibes like that. Yeah. So sorry to Spoil Your your pick there. But yeah, that was thought of to you know so. Hopefully it's better than that, right? Sure. So what do you have for the first one I picked actually had the character of Nikola Tesla in there if I'm not mistaken, which was another Christopher Christopher Nolan movie the Prestige about the two magicians there and probably his most underrated movie that's worth watch right I would absolutely agree yeah, and then my second wine is. A lesser known Steven soderbergh movie from we would call it the first act of his career. His it's Kafka Stephen. COPCO, which is really dark and brooding and of that time period and like involves like these big Mac intricate sets that looks like this one has. So those were the two that really stood out to me here. Pure. Okay. I I haven't seen that one soderbergh one, but certainly the prestige I completely see that. Of course, like I said, imitation game is on my list. You know it. Again, it's like. Are they going to be telling the story or are they going to be telling a Hollywood is story that kind of gets a little silly you know or whatever you know I guess we're GonNa find out the other one I wanted to bring up though and this where I hope it kind of leans towards and it's a film from last. Year. It's Ford v Ferrari. I. Hope they are planning to go very like crowd-pleaser with the whole rivalry thing and maybe gets to be like a lot of posturing and like really trying to show each other up kinda thing and maybe there's a lot of that going on and I could see that being kind of fun in the world of science and Nerdy. Kind of tough guy. Nerdy. In a way. Yeah. That does sound fun like what else sounds Dave is there was like a movie about like a wizard and he went to like a wizard school but like his parents were dead. So he end to find out what happened to him and maybe like eight movies and if someone wrote a book about him and there was a made up sporting event and all these weird side characters and a bad guy whose name, we shall not speak so on and so more Dave I've only seen two of. Those movies the first two or did you just picked at random to at random? Really which what would you did? You see I bet you saw the third one because it's Corron right? Yeah. I saw that one and I think I saw the second the last one maybe I don't know that's a random wanted to pick so I'm currently watching the Harry Potter series with my daughter we're through the first four three and four are my favorites which is corona and Mike Newell's One. So after that we go to David yes. Well Jason I think this is fun I. Think we got a lot of movies to look forward to hear I mean August seems to be. You know there's there's a lot more that we could have picked for this this little conversation here. But. There's so much coming out and I'm excited see some of the and maybe we'll end up doing an episode. One of these. Once once it gets there, do you want to on anything I got Dibs on this whole project Dave On on these. I would like the one most interested in is I used to go here.

Jason Harris

"So i can't really go back. I mean i was a fan. And i knew of him but i can't be like oh. Why didn't i go see him in the usa. When i was five years old. So i feel okay about that. The one thing i'll say is my brother who's another superfan often talking about latest surfer wear like you're chasing that perfect wave and we've been to so many shows we've caught few of those waves and you're like you should be able to retire after that but no you have to chase the next perfect wave after Hello everyone and welcome to a new episode of settling bruce your podcast all about bruce springsteen his music and mostly his fans i am your host jesse jackson and joining me today is fellow podcast or a journalist and a springsteen fan jason. Welcome to the show. How's it going. I am a podcast or journalists springsteen fan. Yes you are which is what which is good. Because you're here jason harris. Tell us about yourself Let's see well. I grew up in new jersey. So i guess By birthright i have to be a bruce springsteen fan i live in las vegas i am also a and comedian As a journalist. I wrote about music and food for over a decade and Yeah we are podcasts. It's called awesome movie years by cell phone critic. Josh bell each season we pick a year. We break it down. I was an awesome movie year in each episode's a different movie that year whether it's best picture biggest box office flop future called classic foreign films so we have a lot of fun with that. Yeah i was just exploring your website and it looks like a fun concept right like you go okay. Well we've obviously gotta talk box office champ and then we gotta talk about failures but you know you guys looks like you guys. Pick a favourite film of that year and so that way you kind of have a fun to talk about and so It's a it's a wide palette to kind of paint your conversations avigdor right. I think we do a pretty thorough job of giving you a kind of overall impression of what was going on in that year And you know we'll do a couple bonus episodes here and there if we felt like we miss something major that we needed to talk about from it so we have done. We're just finishing season five. I think so. We've done one thousand nine hundred four two thousand seven nine hundred eighty nine two thousand sick not two thousand and six nineteen ninety six an hour in nineteen seventy seven. Wow i did not do a good job of remembering my podcast actually did a pretty good job. I yeah. I nineteen seventy seven. Was the era. I graduated from high school. So i was looking like. Oh yeah that's great years. Of course star. Wars is the big you know movies that year. Sure star wars close encounters. Smokey and the bandit saturday night fever months monster he say here as that's cool let's go to also you as as bruce superfan man i mean. Did you get to go. Darkness seventy eight. Did you just hit that. Torah as much as you could or no as i shared in the past i grew up in a small town in louisiana. My dad was in the army but basically Lake charles louisiana and had no concept of the few times. I was an. Am radio kid. So the few times. my friends in high school with talk about you know novo one. Oh four It was like but you don't know any of the songs you can't sing along. And so i did not truly Discover bruce till probably nineteen eighty when A friend of my girlfriend at the time now my wife had gone to school on the east coast and she came back talking about this guy neighbor springsteen so i remember picking up the river like everyone else in nineteen eighty four. You know bought born in the usa But i really was a casual fan of till two thousand and two. Which was the first year i saw him. I went and saw him. Finally here dallas on the rising tour and jason. I often say there's two kinds of people if people go to their first springsteen show and go. Wow that was long and the second one is on my goodness where his and my only life and now i wanna go to every show forever and ever. I could only imagine like knowing that you missed you. Missed the darkness tour. The river to are the board in the usa. Do like i sit there. I mean lake charles. Louisiana is where my high school is little north lake. Charles sets only three hours from houston. And you know in you know seventy five seventy six seventy seven. When i was in high school he was playing smaller clubs in. Houston you're right and so you're like okay. Now how do you Go back in time. We get into cardis or get in the way back machine until a fifteen year old. Jessie okay get a fake. Id find someone to drive you to houston and go see this guy for four I there awad things i talk about. I you know all of us have regrets in our lives but Whenever someone says what would you go back and tell your sixteen year old self. I'd like one Exercise more because you're the thinnest you're ever going to be right now and you think you're a fat kid but trust me you're going to get bigger so exercise more Learned to play the guitar and three Go look up this guy named bruce springsteen and go by these albums because well. Hey man you know you gotta have some regrets because ryan can relate to certain other springsteen characters better than others so exactly and also jason is. I don't know if you're a sports fan but like when there's a football game and someone misses an extra point you feel like the teams chasing that extra point the rest of the game. I feel like if you didn't no matter. When you get to. Bruce live whether it was like okay. I went and saw him like in the darkness tour or i saw him in the first river. Tour you know. Y- i saw him in the born issue a tour whenever you're always like oh i wish i could've seen him earlier in fact go ahead or no. I mean i think it was so just for reference sake. I i saw when i was in college. Which was the reunion tour. The union tour. If you will so so i can't really go back. I mean i was a fan. And i knew of him but i can't be like. Oh why didn't i go see him in born in the usa. When i was five years old. So i feel okay about that. The one thing i'll say is my brother who's another superfan talking about latest surfer. Where like you're chasing that perfect wave and we've been to so many shows we've caught a few of those waves and you're like what you should be able to retire after that but no you have to chase the next perfect way of after so Kind of jumping ahead right I always like to preface this question with The amount of shows you've gone to his not a fair barometer fan. You're right because circumstances in age economics and where you live but for the record you know how many shows you've gone to. I lost counted fifty. So i lost counted fifty. I've seen him all over the. Us and ireland. I followed him for about for three shows in ireland which was awesome a great way we we flew a dublin where he wasn't playing and then wherever he was playing just drove and that was grammy to see the country. I get some performance. Dublin also comedian. Oh yes oh my Was one of the classics which was hartford. I think it was may eighth. Two thousand which was one of the major bankers of the reunion tour Some of the other like for super bruce fans. I was at the both the last two Shea stadium Goes further reunion. I mean for the rising tour. I was in two thousand and eight The the same lewis show which is regarded as a classic awful and other working on a dream tour. So i've caught like some amazing amazing and i did fenway. So yeah he's from him. You ever ever gone to my boss time the website. I haven't been there now. Okay so anyway. that's if you feel like going down a rabbit hole Time is It is a database where it has listed every show every tour is ever done and so you create a free account and then you go. Oh i was at that show. Oh i was at that show. And then behind the scenes it will calculate What song you've heard the most what song you've heard the least. What were your personal premieres. What the rarities you've school. Yeah you'll have to check that out but you said you grew up in jersey always like to go to the beginning sure Talk to me about growing up. What kind of music did you listen to. You was your family and music. Yeah so my mom and dad. Old hippies My dad actually followed the great data around for a while. When i kind of followed started. Falling bruce inle other people in the family. He's got to get a job. He's gotta do this. I can't really tell them to do that because i did. The same thing with the grateful dead so they. It's a family tradition like junior ryan. I can't man you gotta you gotta you know you gotta go after what you believe in our artistically so my they were beatles people. I'd say you know more than anything. But i remember a lotta beatles. A lot of janice joplin a lot of simon and garfunkel. My dad is a lot of folk music too. As far as the springsteen stuff on my earliest memory is like literally. When i was four years old at midnight like i said you know not only did. I grew up in new jersey but at that time that was born in the usa. So you know you know it was like it was roose michael jackson prince madonna cyndi lauper probably the big five of the rock and roll tino out there and i remember loving born in the usa at already has like four or five year old. The album that we had at the house was the live. Seventy five to eighty five on record so that was cool but also you know my parents you know. They love like van morrison and the band so a lot of stuff that you know. We know bruce either has been influenced by or relates to really. Yeah so so. yeah so. That's kind of my musical upbringing. I started about music. In las vegas for magazines when i was probably either late twenties early thirties. And i've seen pretty much every big big ben at there is. How did you get from jersey to vegas. We moved out in the middle of high school. And i you know kept going around here and there. Wherever and then i ended up. I kept ending back in las vegas. It's very easy lifestyle. Good lifestyle for comedian. You know once. I started writing. It was like well i see every bandit they're instrumental. I get to cover every good restaurant that there is right. Now you know so Yeah i feel fortunate. That i mean i couldn't tell you. How many bands i've seen or out. I mean you hear something on the radio and you'll be like i saw them. Don't that's so. Jason did you can you. Obviously it. sounds like you're very big fan of a lot of kinda music a lot of diversity. But what about. Bruce foots him on that higher level. I think i was also. I was casual fan. You know in college in you know up until then and i kind of i think at the end of high school may be really started getting into him. Darkness born to run. Were the first two that i connected with. But when i went to that first show like i mean you know all the books you read or stories you've heard about first shows like it sounds like a cliche but it's absolutely true like right so like it was like time stood still and i remember watching it and i was like okay. I'm going to college right now and i did. I quit college. I wasn't happy where i was. I took a year off to write. And then i went back and finished college. But it was seeing what bruce springsteen was able to do on stage like The the power of it and the energy of it. I was like i have to go do something right now. I mean i. I did not quit my job but it was. I said that all the time of the podcast than i. You know i mentioned earlier. You know a you either. Go while that was a long show where you go. Oh my goodness what. What is this and it opened up another world to me and You know i. I've told the story more multiple times on the podcast. Jason that you know. I felt like because i had not done my homework. Like i had not listen to the rising seedy over and over again so A lot of the songs. I didn't know You know this wasn't like i think the reunion tour would have been a good tour for me to go see right because i would have known a lot of the hits And i was just like. Oh i wanna know i wanna know And it it it. I what i've said often is like you've either you've law kathleen into a movie or you've picked up An issue of a really well written comic book. And you're like okay. I'm enjoying the story. But there's a whole note world out there that i haven't seen sure but that's okay like the reunion towards an amazing tour. Because he was doing so much from the catalog but don't forget he was also doing stuff from tracks. No one's ever heard. Yeah exactly yeah frigging out roulette for the first time in twenty eight years or whatever it was right. He did over one hundred songs on that tour. So i i was in that case where like similarly i was a casual fan. I knew the big songs. I knew some others but like there was so much like that i needed to learn and go back to. That was what opened it up for me so but you know so by the time the rising point i knew everything in the catalog but yeah i think i mean but that's okay like i mean. Sometimes you go see abandoned. You might know nothing about them. And it's your you know you can still feel an energy or how the exactly audience or you know what it is. I mean you know when you hear them but really. It's beyond the music to me. It's the way that he connects with the audience. So that's that's kind of. What did it for me i was. I've never seen anyone connect like that. And i like i said i do stand up. I have seen plenty of shows on broadway. i've heard music for decades for a decade. So it's he's a senior performer. And that's you know we all know that yeah kind of i'm gonna take a left turn here but You mentioned stand up. How are you doing with the pandemic. I mean how are things going there. I'm retired no exactly. It does feel like i'm retired. There's nothing there's really nothing was a couple of zoom shows. But i didn't want to get started on those because you know again. I mean it may be influenced. My grandfather was also a comedian of sixty years Plus years but may maybe. It's a springsteen influence when i like to connect with mike crowd. I think that's a strength of what i do. And i do a lot of ad living kind of off the in my head stuff and interacting. So i just didn't want to go down that path for some people. It's right for some people it's not and i think there might be something coming up that i'll put together where we're going to do outdoor shows but it's still not really realistic to comeback. All the way. I'm a big fan of pin at penn and teller but specifically pinging. That's podcast you know. And they've talked a lot about you. Know matt donnelly and cadeau you know. don comedian. He's he's a buddy of mine. Oh okay very nice. Yeah so you know. And they're they're talking about right like what do you do you know how. How do you figure this out in. it's It's a crazy time and Yeah you just gotta look to. I mean what i've tried to do is just put all my creative energy elsewhere. Right whether i've done a ton of writing We just got a short film. I should finish my second or third feature script coming up while synthesis started. And then you know I have a young daughter who's back in school. So she's doing school at the house. Get which which is good. I'm glad that she's doing that. Because i don't think schools are ready to be open yet. But it's a lot of work not just for her for the parents too so you know that said. That's it's crazy world. Hey we all know it. Yeah you mentioned a couple of times as a writer one of the things you can. You sent me an email You mentioned like you had been lucky enough to interview both Stephen o'neill so talk me a little bit about that will so i didn't interview nails. I've covered a couple a nil shows and knows his tweeted me before he knows. I have reviewed it and he likes the reviews which is nice that is s. I n so yeah. I met nelson roy briefly but stephen man i interviewed steven van zandt. It was awesome and it was about. It was probably like so. It was one of those days where he was running around. And it was For the disciples assault tour so they actually gave me his his cell phone number. Call him on. The plane arrived before it was taken off and We talked almost an hour. Forty five minutes or more and there's just so much i wanted to know and i there's so much i didn't get to ask him utero. I got to ask them a lot about his solo work at a lot about the stuff with the east street ban which was fascinating awesome and amazing and but i didn't get to ask him much about acting. I didn't get to ask much about southside johnny. I didn't get to ask about producing other acts. Or even you know the underground garage. Because i mean do who's led them more fascinating life than that right now. You know when he was producing when he was promoting The the two albums he did over the past couple of years on the tour. He's done a lot of press and it's been interesting to hear him share that he and bruce now tell young bands. Break up like you know like you know. Take it from us you can. You can go do all you want individually but keep that band there so you can come back. you think. That's cool. And i mean also you know play live is the other began base. Say right but yet. No you know i i get that. Get that You know with as screenwriter with my last writing partner always things. We wanted to do separately. And i think that caused us to eventually break up with any partner. I'm writing with now. It's at a more mature place. I'm really enjoying what we're doing. But if either of us had a solo project i would support that To so it's cool but If i can tell a funny stephen story released do so. I went to meet him back stage when he was doing the show at the house of blues. Out ear and A buddy of mine. You mentioned comic books. Jay williams the very famous comic book artist chair I took him and he brought a bunch of stuff that he's drawn that he's written or that you know he got he's he's he's he brought for span man stuff bradley really. Yeah big stuff right and or just j. You could tell his nervous. I'm not because like i. You know. I already interviewed one in like i feel like naturally i just talk to people right on track so stephen. We're just talking and everything and Eventually he sees j.j. With the books right and won't get there and that's a pretty good. Yeah so jay nervously. I'm a big fan of yours. And i'm comic book artists and i just wanted to give you some of my work and i hope you will enjoy it. Stephen looks at him and just gets us like very stephen. Look i dismiss the us. What do you call these graphic novels. Perfect that is a perfect interaction. Which is that is that. Would i would love that. That is a perfect answers. That's that's great that is that's that's that is classic I was lucky enough. A couple of weeks ago Through twitter marine. Dan had reached out to be a insist. Sure i'll be on the show. And so i was able to spend forty minutes talking to her and what was great. Is you know similar to you. i'm like okay. I'm going to talk about her. I wanna talk about you. Know her time on the sopranos and her ballet and you know her career and It was a nice interview. I i was really happy with it and later. She tweeted me and said hey. I think people are disappointed. You didn't ask him more stuff about the band. Do we want to do this again. Yes yes we do. I won't mind that. That is good. One of my favorite things from the stephen interview. As i asked i said i asked him. I literally i think the only rock star. I think he's had a career with two nicknames. Right right miami. And then little steven and i asked him about that needs miami. Was the party guy in the band. In when little stephen came out he had to be a front man in a little more serious. So it's kind of funny are interesting. At least tally kind of worked. Those personas out. I am so glad you answered that because One of my best friends would he said. Okay you're gonna talk to marie van zandt. You need to ask her. Why did he change the nickname. And i'm like oh. I can't ask her that and at one point in the interview she said no. No you could ask me some band stuff. I sit down or no. I said i wanna talk right you. I said but for my friend He wants to did you. Marry miami steve or little steven you know. And she said kind of both if she goes like i guess. I'm a big mess. Because i ended up. He was transitioning. And so i ended up marrying both. I think which with goes perfect with your answer him explaining how he was. Yeah yeah he's a fascinating person. I really agenda. I love his twitter He's very political but also Vary like i. I liked his idea of you. Know he'll say you know we need to party so this is we do. This is how we argue is how we get things done. Just not the modern republican party. Yes another podcast. I mean theoretically sure we do but it's all broken now it is it is broken. Talk to me a little bit. Why did you guys. How did you come up. So it's awesome movie your podcast. How did she come up with that concept to pick one year and kind of look at it from all different kinds of ways. There's a good book called. I think it's called best movie year. Ever it was all about nine hundred ninety nine. And i was looking for. I had done a few other podcasts. In josh is my co host. He and have been best friends since high school and gans film critic. I'm a filmmaker. We've we've kinda you know we we've written stuff together and we're looking for something interesting. You know it kind of stemmed from there and joshua as his thing was look this book's already been written but what if we looked at any given year and you know kind of add categories that were in place for us so we can kind of feel out what was in that year then we kind of put our own categories in there so we can kind of expand on it and from the very. I'm not a fan of harare episode. One which is the lion king. I think that's our very rough episode. But julie from episode two on like i feel like we hit a group very early on at least you know with our format in who we are and our interaction and yet that it's just been like a project. I'm really proud of. And i hope people check it out. It's like i said it's awesome movie. it's on Any any podcasting platform that you have jason. Have you pick which year you're going to discuss. So good question We do so much research. Man like You know ninety four. Which was the first season was one. We both wanted to do right away because we were teenagers. And it was a seminal year. You had you had clerks you had you know a pulp fiction. You had far as go. you know. there's a lot of biggies in there and then after that you know we kind of talk a lot of things. Two thousand seven was a big year for josh adenine. Nine new would be a big year because that was batman. Do the right thing stuff like that. Like you know when you jones. Yeah yeah that one. Yeah so so. And then you know. Kind of ninety. Six to me was like the greatest year for oscar movies that there was. So that's how we got there. And then seventy seven. You had mentioned star wars. We kinda took out but we have a lot of. We've researched probably four or five seasons into the future already. So do you think you'll go back to classic like as often nine is considered you know. Many people make the argument. Thirty nine is 'cause isn't that casa blanca gone with the wind You know there. There's a whole slew of you. Know great movies yes. You don't wanna go back that far we are going to do. We are going to do. We've talked about thirty nine Part of it is you know we want to make sure that our audiences with us so we want to kind of build up as much Of a relationship as to what we're doing because look we get it. You know like not everything's gonna be the easiest and most accessible stuff for every right so yeah but so thirty nine in there and we have two other that we've already talked about years. I would say from in between thirty nine and seventy seven that are on this one of which is planned out. We'll be soon. You know the thing is. We're both were both eighties kids and you know so. We have a reverence for the eighties. Germany's in the two thousands. Are you know we were young adults. So but going back like seventy seven's been awesome. I'm and i'm the one the next one that we have plan which From before that is. I'm super excited for so. Yeah like anything's fair. Game to me. So that state couple of stories of eighty nine My my son was born in february of eighty. Nine and We i remember. I started a new job and really busy Jason so like. I was coming to work like at ten. Am and working till eleven at night. You know i was working in a call center and we were we could not we were so we were so short. Staffed and and when batman came out I went to an early showing and my shift was three to eleven. And i didn't show up to like you know one thirty two o'clock for that day and one of the teen leads just chewed me out. Like where have you been a mike. I would saw batman. What are you doing right And like this is my you know. I'm not late for my shift Is it an old by the way when the new indiana jones films in. I'm going to do the same thing right. So that's the that's happy memories. That's good because movie theaters don't exist anymore. Exactly it's that's one of the great things about the For me podcast is like you know. Look if there are things that we've missed from those years like it's a great way to go back and find them right and there are definitely certain big films that are in our memory. That are like what i thought. I remember liking this. What happened here. And then of course you find some just hidden gems out there. That are like fantastic movies. You know That you would have never known about otherwise Any even just doing the research on the years which i said is super You know i'd say intense. Dave and time consuming like you can kind of put together and even further more detailed plan from there. If that's you know. I bet i imagine well. Speaking of hidden gems are their favorite songs or albums of bruce's that have meant a lot to you over the with your family or maybe with yourself. i think i gravitate most towards darkness. Yeah i think so. I just feel like that one. Just maybe it's like. I said i grew up in a working class road in new jersey. So right but i you know like it's like you know that was the i guess that kind of like foundational piece After born to run platelets. Honestly like i mean. That's what i gravitate towards most but you know wild innocent. Like i know i know those places i know that world you know 'cause i spent plenty of time on the jersey shore or theron iran. Probably when i was in college was like the album of like young men going through emotional stripe like having to figure out his place in the world. I mean you look. I can argue for any of these albums right. You know exactly. But i think darkness for me one to ten is just like men is just a monster monster lives so we'll give me thoughts on the latest to letter. Yeah to you in ghost came today. Did i'm kind of excited about the way you know like you know. From every evening. I read the rolling stone article. And he's saying you know we're not doing over dubs and they were just in the studio recording it much like the way. They did darkness in the river. Right where it's just the whole band in the studio and they're banging it out until they get it right. which is maybe one take. Maybe twenty jake's who knows maybe one of A a guy who's been on the podcast to is a springsteen historian. He was critical that he said that. What do you mean you recorded an album five. It used to take you five months and it you know it like crap. The you didn't surprised me bruce. I thought he was a little harsh on the news. Stuff you mean. Yeah he's like for letter to you. He was like oh crap and i was. I thought once again. I'm i do a springsteen podcasts. Right so i'm gonna be a college for the guy right. I'm biased but you know one. I don't think he has anything to prove to. I think he's done it all the way he wants to do. It and i could see them. Getting ahead of little even heels and an roy. And and you know gary and everyone and say hey you know what. Let's just all get together on record welcoming you and four days right. That's that's how they did the sessions band right so you know but the other thing is this right like okay. It took them however long. You know whatever six months or run in this and that but even he said he wasn't happy with the final products he was always tinkering with family. There were overlays in everything that he needed to hear. Come out of his head but part of that is also like technology now is so much different than it was back then right and and a lot of stuff they were doing back then they were trying to find kind of debt those walls that sound reverberated on that were in soft walls kind of has that but also i wanted my biggest counterargument what that gentleman I didn't hear it. So i don't know but based on what you said is like look dude. I'll take on the river. Outtakes over loose ends on tracks any day Dirty and i want it real. And i want it as close to live sounding as possible right. So don't sweeten it. Don't clean it for me. give it to me. That's that's you know. Prove it seventy eight right like you know you. Just get into that. It's visceral you feel something bisser all about rat. And that's kind of what i want to feel and like you said like dude like i mean. He just put out an amazingly polished album last year. So it's a nice you know getting a little more raw again. And i mean you know He has nothing to prove. He decided he wanted you know. I loved western stars. I know not everyone did. It's a very different album. But i think it's a beautiful album. I think it's great that it seventy you wanna to do something different now than you know at seventy one. you know. It's a new eastern band album. How cool is that. I mean i mean you can hear that both of those songs or you're gonna be great live songs right and hopefully hopefully we'll get them you know and i know he wants to go out on tour really does right but You know one other thing just real fast on there was like look in the rising came out. It was like pretty much regarded as a masterpiece and to me. The most the first real important piece of art post nine eleven right right and then you got magic which like maybe had critical acclaim. But i don't think mass acclaim until like years later and now if you go back and listen the magic like with what we're living through. It's like probiotic man and it. It's a great album. Sorry that i cursed there that's And then you know. I don't know i love. I personally. Love wrecking ball. Which is totally camping. So you know he's doing different things. And i'm i'm all in on it too so i'm excited. I would have heard you know. I like both these songs. I'm not sure either is like You know end of as like an all time. Great for me. But we have so many. But i hated. We've got seven more than and then. I'm really excited for japanese shooter. Because that's always been a. How is that right jason. Let's say we get out of this mess. We have a. We've got a vaccine. Things are back to this new normal. You're heading to a new show. Are their songs. You haven't heard him perform live that you'd like to have him to hear. Yeah you know what i wanna hear is lonely night in the park from The rod deep cut section in. I wanna hear janey of this and you know what. I've always thought that was. I don't know. I mean god. There's he must must it once right. Lowlying bryant park something. Like that. I'd like to hear i mean i've been to so many shows. It's tough for me to know normal like quote unquote set lists on Like action in the street. Which you just played twice in seventy seven on the. Yeah the chicken scratch tour. I'll take that you know. But it's all like you know man you get to the point where you're like. You're you're just selfishly. Like settlers touring at that point. You know so As far as like the big stuff. I think i've heard all the big stuff but yeah i would. I would love to hear side of wild innocent all the way through elmer. otherwise. I i mean i've seen and heard most of it would be look if he's ever going to do like i've seen proven seventy eight which i loved. That was white whale song right. Yeah vs ever do backstreets with seventy eight stuff again. That would be awesome but cher. But i've seen him with the dream. Baby dream interlude at fenway. So that kinda covered that for me. That's nice that's that's real nice. Yeah yeah so like an engraving. This is deep springsteen nerd. Talk right so yeah i've caught. I think maybe look the one big sorry. I haven't seen with the ban. But i saw it on. Broadway was tougher than the rest. So that might be a big song. When i have seen it on broadway and that's an interesting story to share you. Everyone knows how hard those tickets gas very hard by brother was producing for indiana pacers his tv producer and he and he goes look. I got one day where i'm going to be in new york. Let's try for the lottery and if we have in win the lottery and then happened to get tickets for that day. Like let's go. And i'm living in vegas and we did. I wouldn't lottery. I was able to get us tickets for that day. So i flew into new york on a friday saw the show. Saturday flew back to vegas on sunday. But here's the thing is like you know it's it's on broadway in an old theater and those rows are super tight like gas and i didn't expect that and i had I don't have an acl in my right leg. So there's end ability issues going on so kagan. Getting into those seats i. I was having difficulty with that. So as to the attorneys. He's like all you should've called us beforehand. Because you know we could have given you. Like especially. And i was like well. No i get that now. But i didn't know and he goes. Okay well somewhere for you to sit. They put me right next to the sound guy for the entire show. If ever there was an experienced where you know people say like he. It feels like it's just you like that was mine where it was. It was me in bruce. And the sound i and no one else in this thousand ceac awesome. It was pretty amazing and it was also one of those things where it's like you've heard all the stories all everyone comes out crying and it's like yeah okay. Whatever now will have like a baby. So oh yeah. I get there. Were a couple of times. In fact it was funny. I got lucky and got to see you. Know flew in from dallas and The actually flew in the day of the show Because i just couldn't afford to stay two nights in new york. I just you know this was pushing and so i flew in time enough to take a you. Know a ride into this little pod that you know the size of cruise ship hotel. But it was all i needed. I was able to like you know shower and freshen up before. I met someone at the at a restaurant right across the theater and so i went. And so we're before the show and i had heard stories about people Not many but a few people talking during the show right. And so i kind of reach. You know i'm kinda looking at me. Like hey i would like. We're not gonna have any problem with people talking. Like i'm just going to throw this out there and this guy next to be says the only sound you're going to hear is me crying and if i cried too loud you can. You can kick me and not know if you're crying. I'm gonna be right there with you and there were a couple of times i agree with you. There were times when i had tears and It it it was something pretty special. I'm always grateful to my wife who let me go. Yeah it was awesome. I'm totally like excited at the idea of a another e street band tour. But it's like one of those things. I'm excited about that. I can't really get too excited about because it's not a reality right now right now you know so. And if it means that they're playing in new zealand for residency than maybe. I'll have to get a work visa. Exactly like don't you guys need a comedian to do a couple of years ago like nearby club right. Don't you or do some alec sweep up after the shower exactly like. Yeah i you know. I needed to do the podcast about some australian films would combine you like my reviews like absolutely. Let me carry guitars so right. That was a great story. jason. What else should. I've asked you. That i didn't i don't i don't know what you should have asked me. There's more stories but like you know harris again. Okay you know that again. Yes yeah. I don't know i look the other thing. I'm sure most of your listeners. Listen those like what a gift. Those springsteen dj sets where this summer. Oh yes. i'm so glad you brought that up I had speaking of Ron ron martz. The come look writer. Who green lantern in dc versus marvel. Just done a lot of stuff. And you know i was talking to him about him. He says we know he's a gifted storyteller wire week. Why are we. We shouldn't have been surprised that he can weave a story between telling stories and picking which songs to share right. It's it's so interesting because it's like you're looking forward to the song. Then you hear a song. No i now i want to hear the story and it's like you know the time my wife is not a big bruce fan You know we have a mixed marriage and So we were driving somewhere in with one one of the first sessions and And we had it on. And he's like she's like I don't want him to play the record. I just wanted keep talking and enjoy and then then after washy. Okay now. I am enjoying the records what we have really good. So yeah i. I think those have been just a a real blessing for us. I mean i'm excited. I'll probably go take a long drive to catch up on the ones. I missed gallery month by Number seven be the basically the jersey rock short history. You know the sound of the jersey shore like i was like it was like oh you made a radio show for me. Thank you sir. You know like you know what an amazing show. That was with the three of them altogether. Oh it was like you're listening to just literally what it was old friends just talking. And yeah i mean dude like come on the club seoul city stuff like that. That like those are things like like. I didn't know that song before that now. A like a couple of times right like how did this song. Never get on a record you know. They've arrested and then. I love the one like that was a midnight because i had it on my radio. App malayan bed. I feel like i was a kid again with a transistor radio. You know listening to that and the one with him and patty and just this sharing their friendship and that relationship them together. It's just really cool. It's funny 'cause you know when you asked me what songs i'd wanna hear like you know like i. I remember ads shea. I saw quarter to three in might have been on it but like wouldn't it be cool to see an eighteen minute version of that from you know the sammy or would stephen you know when they in ninety six when when they did the kind of like a stick. I don't wanna go home. You know. I love to hear that. So but i mean i'm fortunate man like i've seen so many shows i've seen like i said some. I've been very fortunate. Catch some of the ones that i did. So most of my checklists has been checked off. But like that. Doesn't i mean i'm excited for what ever whatever the next and i will look. We ought like the sign requests. We all want those like those rarities. You know if you bring a sign for waiting on a sunny day. You're out of the pit. Yeah there it was Jahmai i had a guy who worked for me When i went to national. I saw the national show when in two thousand fourteen. Yeah kid had the sign. you know. no satisfaction. Right play rolling says the action at. He's like okay. If you had a kid there's no way your daughter is going to bruce. Show asking for a rolling stones song. I was at that show. I was there too. Yeah i love that show. I was really. What's again greedy right. I was thinking maybe someone from nashville will jump on because my first show was dallas two thousand to the rising and the Oh damn it was condo the Our other resident musician. And i'm i'm drawing a blank on Don henley don henley joined him on stage they did. I fought the law. That's gin li lives in the dfw area. And i was like you know that was kind of special And then one time. Time in dallas Bon jovi was the next night on station. They did glory days together Let's see i. I'd have to really think of who i've seen. I definitely obscene. Mike ness from your social distortion. More than once. I mean those chase shows had like. Oh yeah sure. Yeah so. I saw i remember i saw dylan do tonight sixty revisited but whatever like whoever you get you get get absolutely so all right So this has been great. But before i let you go i gotta ask in america question cool so so yes. Go ahead okay. So j armstrong is an honors english teacher in the philadelphia area and every year his senior class in the honors class. They take they take two days in their curriculum and they break breakdown. Thunder road point. They go through all the lyrics he looks to the imagery he shares with themes that the song explorers. They talked about the compare it to robert frost road not taken and a lot of other poetry classics and at the end of the two days Jay looks to the classes. Says does mary get in the car so jason. That is your question. Does mary get in the car at the end of thunder road. So here's my question. You what would you say is the breakdown. Percentage wise of what people flynn said. Great question sixty forty yes cool. So i'm i'm fascinated by this sting. That j armstrong does. But it's unfair to ask that question if you haven't listened to the rest of the album if you just look at the song then asked the question. And it's not really fair. And then again i mean so i thought about this and i'm it's a yes and the reason why it's a yes has less to do with the lyrics more to do with the overall and the kind of philosophy of the album. And you know. I'm guessing other people have said it. But as springsteen has said many times thunder road is the invitation right right so you know you gotta have you gotta have someone ride with. If you're gonna go on those adventures you have the rest of have the rest of the album. Yeah you need someone to say yes to the invitation. So it's a yes to me. I think that is absolutely wonderful. Answer and very fair And i and you're right. Other people have said that absolutely. Because that's you know that that's the beginning of the journey right like that. Album is the beginning of the journey. And you know others have said yes because You know how else does She get pregnant. Antigone no ends up being the river guys. Assuming that's the same. Mary right so i would assume it's not because now you're just talking lyrically name name as opposed to the the inspiration behind the song there now. I will tell you this. Someone mentioned to me. And i love this. He said absolutely she gets in the car. Because in racing in the street when she says my baby weights on her daddy's porch. He said that's the same porch that she was dancing on in thunder road. That's nice that's a very fun. That's like you know. It's a year connecting in in very Obtuse obscure ways. But i like that. Answer i did. I was going from the more historical. Your what would it bruce. Say about its right absolutely album. Yeah all right. So jason awesome. Movie your podcast.

"Hello and welcome to sword and scale daily. I'm your host Ryan Williams. It's Friday November twenty second and this is your daily true crime coming up on sort and scale daily. A Michigan has been charged with the two thousand fourteen murder of his wife after allegedly poisoning her cereal with heroin to former Houston. Police officers are facing state and federal charges in connection with a box drug raid. That left two people dead. A New Mexico man indicted in connection with the two thousand sixteen murder of ten year. Old Victoria Martens was released from jail pending trial finally in Australia. A young woman is on trial for allegedly learning a man to her home after meeting him on a dating snapped and murdering him. All this and more coming up on sword and scale daily A Michigan judge ruled this week that there is sufficient evidence to try Jason Harris us for the murder of his wife. Christina and Thomson Harris reports the Associated Press Thirty six year old Christina Thomson Harris was found deceased in her bed in late September. Two thousand fourteen. Her death was initially ruled accidental heroin overdose shocking friends and family who insisted the breastfeeding mother did not take drugs. Four weeks after the death another woman had moved in with Jason Jason was. Dan awarded one hundred and thirty thousand thousand dollar insurance payment. which used to pay off his student loans? Christina's family filed a wrongful death suit against Jason Harris and civil court and and he was deposed in his deposition. Jason admitted to having since sexual messages to another woman and telling his wife about them he also owned owned up to begin financial trouble before Christina's death and to discuss the divorce with his wife. Jason gave his version of the events of the night and morning before Christina died died saying that the night before. His wife was pumping milk in a chair. He then brought her a bowl of cereal and milk and then she fell asleep in the chair dropping. Her Spoon Spoon. Jason claimed his wife was alive when he left for work the following morning in the afternoon. Jason Harris called a neighbor and asked her to check on her Stena. Now the neighbor who went to check on Christina ended up discovering her body in two thousand nineteen there were reports that police were taking another look at the death when investigators interviewed Harris's colleagues at a plastic manufacturer. One of them told them that Harrison asked him to get him pills to quote make his wife go to sleep and stop nagging. Another coworker said that Harris had hired a Hitman to kill his wife and paid him five thousand dollars however while conducting conducting surveillance of the victim. Police arrested the Hitman on a gun violation and he was incarcerated on August twenty eighth two thousand nineteen criminal charges were filed against Jason Harris. He pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors alleged that Jason Harris poison his wife cereal with heroin to cause her death so the key piece of physical evidence to support their claim they say is a bottle of old breastmilk found in the freezer tests that were run on. The milk showed no traces of of heroin suggesting that Christina was not a habitual user but was administered a dose before her death the lengthy preliminary hearing to determine whether there's enough evidence for the case to proceed to trial ended. This Tuesday and the judge has decided there. Is We now turn to Houston Houston Texas where two former Houston. Police officers are facing felony charges related to a January two thousand nineteen drug raid the raid left to citizens instead and five police officers injured per. ABC Thirteen Houston on Wednesday the F. B. I. Arrested Fifty Five Year Old Gerald Goin- and forty six year old Stephen. Brian Goings a thirty four year. Veteran of the force is indicted on Federal Civil Rights. Charges that carry a possible punishment of life in prison. Bryant who served twenty. Three years stands indicted of obstructing justice by falsifying records. These federal charges followed state charges which were filed against the two in August goings is charged with two counts of felony murder and tampering with government. Records Bryant is charged with tampering with government records. The charges of felony murder against goings mean that going is intent is irrelevant to his guilt or innocence sense. The important factor is that the alleged murders happened during the Commission of another alleged felony namely tampering with government records. The charges stemmed from a botched drug raid that took place in a house in Southeast Houston on January twenty eighth. The official story at the time was going at the house else with a team of officers to serve a no knock warrant to the occupants Dennis Tuttle and Regina Nicholas the occupants of the home were suspected of being armed drug dealers. The Ray then escalated to a gun fight between the occupants and police which took place inside of the home as a result of the firefight fight. Both residents died and five. Police officers including goings were wounded. One remains paralysed. No drugs were discovered in the house besides small amounts of marijuana and cocaine for personal use there were also no guns found. The family of the victims refuse to believe the couple couple were dangerous drug dealers and did their own investigation. Those showed among other things that there was no evidence. The residents shot at police at all let alone alone after police entered the house. The two shots that killed Tuttle Nicholas worship from outside of the House through a wall. Houston police took another look at the arrayed. They learned that the initial tip that led to the raid was called in by one Patricia Garcia on January eighth. She called nine one one several times on January anywhere eighth reporting that tuttle and Nicholas narcotic dealers and had guns in the house and her daughter was in there with them. Garcia has since been charged with making making a false police report later that same day a patrol officer stopped by the House to investigate tip found no evidence of criminal activity and send a note to that effect to narcotics in the twenty days. The pass between the tip and the raid. The file showed only one additional piece of evidence. A report by goings that a confidential informant purchase narcotics from Tuttle Nicholas when confronted regarding the confidential informant. Going admitted it'd there was no informant but claimed he had made the purchase himself. He later changed the story again saying he made the by but couldn't be sure. The man who sold him drugs was title. Prosecutors allege that going submitted a false report to a judge to obtain the no knock warrant two days after the raid going joins allegedly gave. Brian the co-accused narcotics which Bryant took injured as drug evidence recovered in the raid. In fact Brian wasn't even even a part of the rate of which he later admitted to. He also admitted to making a quote mistake in the collection of drugs. The two officers resigned during the investigation following investigation. The Houston Police Department announced new stricter guidelines. which would make no knock warrants harder to obtain these charges against going and Bryan have also led to the dismissal of several other drug cases they were involved in thousands of drug prosecutions could potentially eventually be impacted in other news? Fabian Gonzalez one of the three people charged in connection with the two thousand sixteen murder murder of ten year. Old Victoria Martens was released pending trial. This Tuesday Victoria Martin's murder was covered in sort and scale episode. Seventy the eight in two thousand Sixteen Gonzales. His Cousin Jessica Kelly. And Victoria's mother Michelle Martin's were accused of murdering young Victoria Maria Martens. The prosecution originally argued that the three injected Victoria with Methamphetamine and raped her before murdering the girl dismembering her body and setting it on. Fire this theory of the crime was based on a confession given to the police by Michelle Martin's hours after the murder confession which later turned out to be false when a new. Da Paul Torres took over the prosecution. He noticed the confession was not consistent with the physical evidence in this crime. So in autopsy. On Victoria's body showed no signs of drugs in her system and no signs of sexual assault. Additionally evidence showed consolidate and Michelle Shell Martin were not in the apartment Victoria died and indicated the involvement of an unknown male. This led prosecutors to change their theory of the crime. Prosecutors now allege that Jessica. Kelly was watching over Victoria. When a well-dressed Hitman came to the apartment looking for Gonzales shortly before for the murder Gonzalez had gotten involved in a violent dispute with unsavory characters when the Hitman could not find solace he murdered Victoria and retaliation and in his stead? After the murder the cousins mutilated and tried to burn the body to destroy the evidence. Prosecutors have dropped most of the serious charges against the three and indicted them with child abuse recklessly caused resulting in death the reckless child abuse incas. All's case was the fact that allegedly knowing he had people looking to harm him. He Left Victoria with Jessica. Kelly Kelly and Gonzalez were also charged with tampering with evidence for the post mortem mutilation. Shen of Victoria's body Michelle Martin's and Jessica. Kelly have pleaded no contest to the lesser charges leaving Zola's as the sole suspect in the murder her who chose to go to trial. When Gonzalez was initially arrested he had a cash bail set at one million dollars? His trial date has not yet been set set and he has so far been incarcerated pending trial for over three years coming dangerously close to violating the right to a speedy trial in the hearing. The state argued. That Gonzales who has a history of domestic abuse poses a danger to society there was also a public protests asking for bail to be denied. Ah The defense on. The other hand pointed out that the more serious charges had been dropped and claim the state's new theory of the crime. Could well be hogwash. The judge judge decided to release Gonzalez pending trial under the terms of bail. Gonzales will wear A. GPS monitor after the break amalgam. Australia woman on trial for murder after learning a man to his death now for our final story twenty four year old Jamie Lee Dole Guy. It is on trial in Melbourne Australia for the murder of twenty year. Old Mullen Thaad. The following facts are not in dispute on July twenty third two thousand eighteen Dole guy met rethought dating website plenty of fish dot com. Her profile declared an interest in extreme bondage. The two exchanged exchanged only six text messages during which it was decided that were thought would come to Dole Guy's apartment for sex. After he arrived they went to Abed. We're DOA guy choked with her hands and then strangled him with the USB cord however while the prosecution argues Doa guy a plan to kill rethought thus committing murder. The defense claims that Doa guys mind was far too chaotic to form a plan. The prosecution alleges in the hours before rethought came over double guy. Google the following search terms. I'm going to kill someone tonight for fun. I'm going to kill someone tonight. Help and I will kill someone tonight and I want to commit murder after choking and strangling THAAD dog. I called emergency services saying and for the prosecution. I think I've killed someone I didn't mean to but I did it. It feels so good. I don't want to be a killer. When initially interviewed by detectives she allegedly told them she had intended to kill rethought? Jamie Lee Doa Guy has been ward of the state since the age of tended. Did she suffered from neglect and was later diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. She has a history of suicide attempts and self harm. She'd it only been allowed to live on her own for four months before the killing and before then she was under the care of two social service workers. The defense say Dogo repeatedly tried to get help from social workers on the day of the murder. I she texted one saying the sheet forgotten to pick up her medications and I was anxious to reply. She received read just ride to the pharmacy in the afternoon. Dog I texted I feel really sick with bad bad temptations. I WANNA call the police. But they won't believe me. I WANNA cry. The reply was trust your judgment per the defense offense. This shows that Dole guy was too damaged and chaotic to form intent to murder. Before we go.

"According to and this is bird. I'm jewish dave bird rose so We got jason with us. Jason harris from awesome movie year. Another all points west show who is starting up. A new season on wednesday november eleventh. The last time we hung out with jason was way way back in february and vegas it was looking like we were going to have bernie as our candidate. Sleepy joe was looking super sleepy. we were. We were all packed in a crowded bar. Shoulder to shoulder fell really nice shaking hands and giving dapitan hugs and it seems like a real close seems like twenty years ago man. What welcome back. Jason thank you thank you. It's a good day to be back. And if i recall i think you guys introduced me as local comedian last time as if my ratings is just within the city limits. But now you have to reduce camouflage camouflage connoisseur. Getting to watch this go about on. That will just be an inside for us but now you have to introduce me as the only comedian you know who has personally been asked by the president of the united states of america to write jokes for him bouma. You are the only comedian. I know that that that happened. That is absolutely true. Unique distinction like you approach. That i mean i don't know about about joe's delivery in and at time i feel like you'd have to like really stretch your skills as as a ghost writer. They're like how would you even approach that. That gig i would. This is how this is grandpa jokes or something like that. I think dave knows my answer right. The way i write and then i'd be fired three minutes. You can't actually. I approach a lot of starts to rebuild our relationships. You can't you can't just roast every far it's mcconnell constantly but now i would be. It would be great if it ever if that opportunity ever came this is from the caucus out here when agent. You saw the candidates and one thing about biden was like you know he personally came up to me twice and rod that up about writing jokes from and it was like whether he means it or not the way he connects with. You personally is you could see. That was his biggest strength. And he's a. He's a retail retail politician. He's one of those guys. That is like the throwback. He's not you know the obama era. He's not the more modern era. He's like that kiss. Babies shake hands god and they were really smart in that they you know. Set them down that path of like trump's going here while you can kind of go. You know satellite him for a few days you go into few days later and then you just you know you. They've already seen bad cop. You just play good cop and like it it were. He's so likable personally. That like who cares if he flubs a liner to you. Just one lay hug the man you know right. Yeah and even when he's fucking up with it's funny because he fox up in i would say equal measure to donald trump. Because both of them you know aren't the most nimble public speakers but especially at this stage in their respective careers but with trump like it you kind of are having a little taking a little shed in florida in it. You're like yeah. Okay yeah fuck you. You can't even say the word China and but with biden. It's like you're you're rooting for the guy. Like come on man. You can do this. You can figure this out. Get get through that word. Get get the right son's name you know you can do it. I know that you can also. Sometimes he's messing like or he stumbles but he'll be stumbling on leg. You know and this is why climate change is real and it's like yeah i'll take those stumbles because you're talking about front against important. It isn't like that as opposed to just yelling. Random would on you know stupid theories so. Forget it like yeah. There's not a comparison beyond the actual bumbling of words. Sometimes so david fresh back from from a little vacation that you took you did the smart thing you got out of town you got the phone gotta while the election was going on What I don't know what your we haven't heard. I've already done two episodes the since the election. You were involved in either of them. What late. My podcast app. It kept popping up new bird road. I was like what what's happening. That's my show. What would you. What do you think man. I mean like. We've talked so much for the last three and a half years doing this podcast about the way that jason Hear from you too on this. Obviously but like the way things shook out funny. Because i just want to put this out there. Like people were shitting on the pollsters. Pollsters deserve to be shit on chat. On because i live in florida and they fucking blue florida but like they're pretty close now with the way that things are shaking out. It's going to look like the fucking polls correct the whole time about nevada I don't know what was we've already been texting a little bit about this. But tell me what what what your overall takeaway is as nevada continues to count like last seven or eight votes however many guys my overall takeaway surprise at just how big of a win. It looks like it's going to end up being when all is said and done. I mean obviously this is. I don't know. I'm not sure if any election of our lifetime is spread out this long it no nine thousand two thousand but that all hinged on one very specific thing it yeah civically in florida and south florida This is you know it's funny because like people talk about how weird this is. I mean like yeah. It's a you know. A pandemic were in the middle of a fucking pandemic a whole bunch of people Used to be a weird. Yeah and they leverage mail in voting and if you look most years the certification in most states don't doesn't happen until weeks later it's just that the numbers start to tell you like we're obviously. This is the way that is breaking down. Media makes a call and most people you know in normal times just just kind of go with it and which is funny because trump keeps saying like. Oh i didn't know the media's who tells us who's president yeah. That is what happens every election day. It's like every obviously like a. It's nice that he's starting to like you know. His team is doing press conferences outside of landscaping companies next to porn theaters. That's fantastic but like it's nice people. At least a few people are like we don't have to listen to this anymore. Like whose fault is it guy they. You don't know that stuff. Who swat isn't that you told your voters not to use the mail in ballots. Not that it would have mattered anyway right. There is something sweet to the idea that so many mail in ballots beat him by such a large margin and the reason that so many ballots had to be used is because how horribly he handled the pandemic and the scary flipside at seventy million people. Or gu's yes. This is the worst thing that's ever happened in our lifetime and this guy fumbled it beyond all belief. Whatever i'm still racist enough to vote for. Let's do it. I mean. I'm not racist but the racism doesn't bother me that much You know i'm fine with that You bring up the pandemic. And i'll tell you man i've had like a one eighty and my thinking on that. I was thinking a few days ago. That dave i think you and i again. We're taxing about this. I was saying like Qadam i mean it's it's horrible. It's the worst thing that's happened to the country in the world in a really long time but like but in one way we should be thankful because the way that the economy was humming the way that people were sort of in their cognitive bubbles around january or february. i don't know joe biden beats donald trump it without the come around that. I don't think. I think that i was wrong. And here's why trump benefited from bump in the anti mask movement. In the i know people. I have cousins. I have like friends who moved into the trump camp over the last seven months. Because of the whole like masks don't work with these people. I mean like some blood related to. There's only so much. I can do anything button. Is your friend. The mute button is a better friend than they are. But like i i. It's just like i mean don't get me wrong. I don't have any trump supporting people literally in my life. That would be crazy. I don't wanna get sick. Like i literally don't want to get sick but it's crazy i don't know what do you guys think. Because i've i didn't want eighty on that one where i was like. Oh yeah he wouldn't have one if it wasn't thank god for perot virus because if it wasn't for that you know the economy would have just been humming along but i mean down here in florida. You got to bump man. People were ready by mid june to pretend the coronavirus didn't exist and the fact that mayors a lot of them down here. Republicans and governors are governors republican. Were continuing You know the safeguards piss them off and rallied them to the trump side which man that's just like a triple bank shot stupid. I don't i don't know what do you think i think it's shameful and it's going to be a blight on all of their records You know everyone who didn't take this seriously. And they can say whatever they want but they didn't take it seriously and they cost american lives and a lot of american lives. And you know these people who were yelling. We need the economy back. Well guess what the economy's not coming back into. We fix this thing right. And that's the thing that i don't understand that they didn't understand. You know david. I we live in vegas. I mean you live in miami. These tourist towns right yet. You know my buddy. The other day was like. Hey i got tons of miles. I'll i'll fly similar. Let's go on a trip a free trip. I'm like nope. I don't want to that right now. Drive with you in mosquito or something like that in our outside. So yeah i get what you're saying like oh definitely like it. It could a focus for the people who wanted it to be like. Hey you're the president. Every president deals with some type of major world events. And you blew it more than any human being in the history of lowing things right. You know that's fine but in but if you saw yesterday it was. It was weird like when biden wine. Right you saw you saw low is going on and all those cities it you know i was not i thought i felt guilty about at first but then i started hearing the comparisons i was like this is what it feels like when a dictator gets toppled. Right that's what that's what a lot of you know kind of analysts. Were saying like this looks like you know when a dictator gets removed. And that's what it felt like so would biden of one. I think there was enough people who know that the you know what whatever you know. The market was good. But that doesn't mean wages going up and was blowing up to. I mean things were worse for a lot of people. A out of people were doing gigs and shit like that. We're like driving uber. Bright and a lot of the economy as we know came from about you know obama policies. But that's finally you can take whatever credit you want. You had a chance with the virus to show what you could do and you showed exactly what you could do so to me. It's like i think people more the nat was like. What is the american spirit. What do we stand for anymore. Who are we you know. What will we tolerate. What do we want the rest of the world to think about us in like that was. That's what i think really came through these last few days so and with all those votes. So i don't know i think i i didn't think biden was gonna win. And then after he won. I was like i was not only thrilled elated. Whatever i just like. I was like i get it. I get this now. Because i saw everyone's reaction and it was the same reaction i had. Which was you know. The monster is going by dave bernie of one. That is that that's kind of the big question for this. Podcast i guess right. That's why guys you. Because you're the one that originally sung the praises of bernie sanders to a neophyte. Liberal me like five six years ago and really rossi through your but so now why my wife. But i don't know if he would have but the thing is the funny thing though is the biggest mark against him would have been the whole socialist thing and they use that against biden anyway so may notice socialist joe biden. At least people are starting to see through that. I say that now but like. Don't get me wrong in the last few days i've had enough trumpers on facebook being like why democrats were counting votes buildings without window. And it's like okay now. Just think about the organizational skills needed to make that happen in the democrats ever shown that kind of adeptness. Ns or i know. I know it's a podcast. You gotta go over these things like wood-burning one level i trauma he bernie guy since day one and i mean that's that was my guy in the primary whatever and definitely my in two thousand sixteen But yeah. I don't know. I'm i'm to this point now where it's like. I think bernie's influence is going to be felt no matter what we've seen that and honestly we i can't worry or look at one could have one. Should he have won. I'm so fucking happy. That joe biden one like that's so great. That's all that matters to me right now. Do you know what i mean like. I can't worry about who's perfect. Or who my favorite is. We needed the the bad guy out and the bad guys out. I think we have a few a little bit of a grace period. Even though like you alluded to there some bickering already going back and forth about like was to socialist or who wasn't social center for who was too far to the left and who you know didn't fight these attacks and shit like that and we're going to be getting over the course of the next few weeks we're going to be getting into that a lot on this show because miami's ground zero for that shit like this is the place where we have ten thousand ten to fifteen thousand super angry members of the cuban exile community that show up in the streets they represent less than a tenth of a point of percentage of population here in our city because this is two point. Seven million person you know. Enormous metropolitan area is a small loud angry minority that show up and they affect the discourse they make it seem like they make it. Seem like oh deep talking about Socialism too much about progressive things and defend the police and all. This shit can't say that down here in miami. And it's like fucker. We just passed a fifteen dollars minimum wage here like two years ago. We re in franchise felons two years before that we fuck in we legalize gay or four years before that we legalize gay marriage before any other states in this out. This is a pretty fucking progressive state and it gets shit on miami's super progressive and gets shit on because of these loud voices. I've defending our i've lived. I've lived in both places and let me tell you man. It's not that different. There's no there's a difference between vegas and and miami is politically at least like very little. Maybe a few libertarians. Here and there but most fuck statewide. Like we're doing way better than you as not having our head up our ass. I mean when was we're not. Laura offered anything of value. Besides florida man you know gets eaten by alligator because he thought he could take alligators to out by hand or something like that. Which are fun. We were known these days for imports of new england area quarterbacks. But that's pretty much it. I mean chinese recording is losing like thirty five. Nothing at halftime right now. He's getting spanked. That's what kind of top of mind right now. Dave has no idea what we're talking about. He's not not not off you brought up the cubans. It's interesting to me. That the cuban vote and thank goodness. It wasn't was not predictive of the latino. Vote in the southwest. No and it's it's anywhere it's not. It's a complete outlier. it doesn't it. Doesn't represent fucking anything as far as the cuban experience is completely unique. Fucking thing that holds no relevance to the larger world of is it s funny though they still well the cubans wrote in this way so all tinos must yeah love. It's like oh well you know if it was. If only joe biden had done something to stop like a black lives matter protests then those cubans definitely would have voted for him but that that was the. That was the deal breaker. It's those motherfucker. Smart going to vote for him. He could've he he could've Stolen elian gonzalez back from cuba. And they weren't they wouldn't have voted for him. It was. it wasn't gonna fuck it happen. I don't know why i don't know you know. Maybe they had fond memories of dictators. You know no offense but it was just well. The the thing about miami is like we're an event city then event place. We swept up in stupid shit. We like i use the example. When i was talking with our last guest the other day about like mar fordham. Marlins games right you go to marlins game third week of the regular season and there's nobody there and then you go to a marlins game if they happen to every now and then like once every seven or eight years be in the wildcard chase sold out. Donald trump is the marlins being in the wildcard chase and this town response to that kinda shit they respond event is things. They're most fairweather people. On the planet they have the attention spans. A fucking aunts and it. He's a candidate that was tailor made for them. Like the fucking rally that. I got caught in traffic the other day three days before the election on sunday. Holy shit it was. I said before it was the biggest non bernie. Political thing that i've ever been near this rally was like twenty thousand motherfuckers in f. One fifties with twenty foot tall vinyl flags and shit like that and i've never seen energy other than like you know bernie event. I've never seen energy like that and I don't know that's the shit that how do you even fix. That's not even political ideology. That has nothing to do with politics. That's just people getting swept up in fucking going out barbecue. They wanna get the fuck out of their house. They want the guy that's telling them. It's okay to do that. Go party and campari compartment. My rally. It's i think jason shared a A funny post the other day about. At least i'm not going to be like wearing the president's name on my shirt for the next four years or something like that reminds me a perfect for this kind of you bring up a good point though it like it kinda. When win. the virus started out here. I i think. I told the state i definitely told it's like anyone who would listen that i said like this is not going to go well in america you know. Obviously the leadership wasn't going to have it go well because they didn't send any example but americans. I'm sorry we were all literally exactly what. I could what i predicted. You know. not that on. This great predictor. But it's like yeah. We're too selfish dude. We need applebee's haircuts like these are the same people. My grandfather deduced my grandfather was in the trenches like yeah respecting him. Now looking what. You're offering a back to him. Eat we We got a lot of work to do on our character. And like i know what you mean like how do you get these people back winner like. I just wanted to go out and do this. And it's like you know like i dunno biden. Set all the right things so far but it doesn't matter there's already the impeach biden people. It's like you loss you know. They haven't even and they haven't even accepted that they lost yet and they're already moving towards nor will they nor will they. They've already this is already a. You know a hundred thirty thousand votes overnight and not one came in for trump. And it's like you're not even talking with any type of factual basis. It all shame on you for still doing this at this point in time like you're not a human being anymore. Stop it crazy man. Like i i. It's probably the toughest thing about. It is how like expected. It is that that the that the cognitive dissonance is going to be like is going to allow them to tell that tale and probably believe it forever in their own minds. Like it's i don't know man i heard i heard a guy talking about How you d program. It's funny because you just about this program a cult member. I saw your post. I was going to say something about it because actually just heard an interview with this guy ago about the specific danger of cunanan right because with most colts. There's this modality where okay you have to fit like this specific way to fit into the modality of that cold. But cunanan is a universal modality. What everything you've got crackling around in your head. There's a cunanan for it. Like your child rapists you know trying to trying to hunt down the pedophile guy. If you're a trump is the next coming of god. God if you're deep state got whatever weird shit you've got going on. They've got a flavor of it for you and they all sort of come together under this loose tent. And he was talking about again. This this this Deprogramming expert was like. I don't know how we're going to deal with with any of this shit over the next ten years because just because the guy loses doesn't mean it's gonna get smaller is probably going to get bigger which i just hope that i hope it trump not being president. It's almost like cutting off the head in a way even though there isn't ahead obviously but at least they won't be hearing it from the guy all the time and maybe that'll help a little the only thing. Yeah what are the republicans. Do you know because like. I'm sure there are already like. Oh do we have to worry about him. In two thousand and twenty four we have to worry about don jr. in two thousand twenty four. It'll be interesting to see what they do. Meanwhile like as a democratic feel great right. now i don't you know biden did awesome kamala great and i'm not a of fan. But she said all the right thing so far stacey abrams. Mvp you know what i mean like. There's young blood ideas and if the democrats can actually coalesce like this. They represent america way more so if they if they can just get those messages right you know then goodwill conquer evil and love will find a way so that's a good segue. I wanted just ice. Oh here for a second. Give you guys some facts and just with with that came out of this election and get your reaction to it. Because i did a little bit of you know math to try to figure out where this election stands in terms of like you know historical numbers because yesterday trump had tweeted out that he'd gotten the most legal votes of a sitting president ever said with seventy one million which he means what he means by legal votes. He's setting down this sort of rhetoric to for future. I don't think they're going go anywhere. But these future lawsuits. He's trying to say non mail in ballot. You know votes or whatever. But i kind of got me thinking a little bit right so i looked up biden his on pace. He's probably gonna get when california comes in seventy eight million votes. that's more than hillary. That's more than obama ever got. That's more than bill clinton got. That's more than ronald reagan. Ever got the most votes in. Us history so more than a million americans have run for public office in this country. Over two hundred and fifty years joe biden got more votes than any of them. The thing about this in india. They have a representative democracy. Right electors vote for the prime minister and the president and then the They don't vote for the prime minister of the president of the they vote in their representatives. Who then go vote. And that's only in the last eight years before that they were under british rule They don't actually vote for like narendra. Modi or whatever and in china there's nothing resembling democracy and those are the only two countries with larger populations in the united states. So what's that mean. That means that. Joe biden has earned more votes in a single election. Then not just any american candidate but more votes than any human being in the history of democracy in the planet going back to like athens twenty five hundred years ago and i think. That's fucking incredible. That's unbelievable all through the primary as he kept beating burning. I was like where is this. Guy's fucking votes where his supporters. Where are they and god damn right there. That's an enormous enormous accomplishment. More people pull the lever for joe biden. Anybody has ever done in the history of democracy. That's unbelievable so to insane reports about that. One i mean in the same way that the clinton campaign with carville You know and then the obama campaign was studied. You know this will be studied as like a really amazing campaign that they ran you know and sadly the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen. You know also gonna be studied for effectiveness if not you know. That's just the tactics or whatnot. You know but i get it. But that's fine but this campaign will and should be studied one man. You're saying like got more votes absolutely true but also when you say that unlike the votes democracy like the the idea of goodness. 'cause biden didn't right or you know as he said like this is a battle for the soul of the country right. He didn't stir up those emotions. That obama did or clinton did right. This was really that. This was dat battle and i don't think i it was so weird. Make this league of personal anecdote here. Like i cried more yesterday than i could remember in the last few years. It was like a breakthrough in therapy. It was like a our system. Some i i guess. I didn't realize how many of those emotions i was holding onto from two thousand sixteen to now whether it was anger or fear disappointment. And not not recognizing the country that we grew up at not recognizing the messaging not recognizing what we had to offer to the world. And i mean you know q. I know you got kids. I got kids. My kids in your kids My daughter and your kids have similar skin tones to kamala harris right. You know whatever the backgrounds are like just having that you know. My daughter came today. She's seven the first woman vice president as again. She kinda looks kinda like you doesn't she right. You know little things like that beyond the most important things or or equally as important things climate change you know pandemic policy. That's all matter so much. This like you said was the battle for the soul nation. And that's what finally happened. Yesterday i was just like the breakdown for be like god. Damn it this fucking america. This is what we're supposed to be. And i mean the country the last four years man like and i think about what you guys have been through. Things have happened in south florida to but specifically in las vegas. And i know that that you know it's still a mystery. What precipitated the vegas shooting in terms of this this this psychopath whose name i don't even wanna like repeat but there has been a huge spate of political violence and right wing violence across the country The vegas shooting happened. And i know that that really kind of tore at the fabric of the city and the and and you know the whole area and it all felt like part of this one big and again. I want to say like. We still don't know why that guy did. That's based on what i've heard. At least we don't know why that guy did that but if felt like he was still part and parcel with this dark chapter this bad time. This shitty where things like that would happen and i mean it must have felt cathartic especially for people in places like las vegas and people in places like you know like Like paso texas and in places like pittsburgh where these things have happened in like for a lot of us we feel it. It's just this sort of disembodied. Feeling that you've had for the last four years from november seventh in two thousand sixteen when you were like. Oh shit. Wait he won. How the fuck did he win. How did that happen until like this escalating tension of like what happened in pittsburgh vegas. You're telling me that twenty twenty people were murdered in a fucking walmart like all of this stuff was just like compounding and i believe in harm reduction i think that joe joe biden is obviously way better than donald trump. And we're going to need to hold as progressives his feet to the fire which is like such a loaded phrase 'cause like what the fuck does that mean but still there's catharsis and there's like a you know a little bit of in a positive way air being let out of a balloon. You think there's anything to that. Sure i mean another thing though just like to add onto it. What you guys are saying. It's also pretty That a big chunk of our basically like southwest to west coast style go and blew a section of the country going blue. Which was really nice. Having you know we were in arizona during during the actual election day and seeing them go blue and nevada like is just it was great just because you always think of this as being you know basically part of the whole middle of nowhere that's going to be filled with a lot of red but it's great that it's changing a little bit blue state you know. I know it's purple. Stayed shorter blue for awhile ariza. Somebody called nevada. Somebody called nevada the texas of the right because liberals and democrats are always thinking like over just this close to getting texas to turn blue and republicans are always like. Oh we're just this close to getting nevada turn red and yet you're right in recent history. It hasn't been happening yeah arizona. That's a big one. I i was. I mean you know but we are seeing a lot of interesting progressive movement. Hey there's a astronaut now senate in arizona. How cool is that. You know it's like i was shocked. Arizona is i mean you know what you put that up. There may be not as shocking as georgia but like arizona is michigan and wisconsin level. You know like wow. He really really made some impressions on people and we're seeing a younger more diverse demographic finally have a say you know they picked their old white guy. Not just the filled white guy. They were told to pick right yet. Arizona i came out of field actually expected georgia a little bit more because You know when the firefight pack it's out of pack actually it's like a political organization but not technically a pack stacey abrams outfit when she launched that It was focused on georgia but she launched it in concert with andrew. Gillum who at that point had just lost the gubernatorial gubernatorial race down here in florida. And they were hand in hand. Supposed to you know flip-flop georgia and florida at the same time. Gillum for reasons that are way to sort it and myriad to get into right now. His ship fell apart like an obviously it reflected on election day right all that money that that he put together and that he ended up spending on his own. Legal fees you know. Give her credit abrams. You know got the result that she was looking for way. Less likely way less likely of a result flipping Georgia blue. that's a huge failure. If it by the way the narrative coming out of this fucking election is very negative towards democrats. And i'm the first one to criticize into to shit on democrats when they deserve it specifically the florida democrats state party but if if the republicans don't have to answer for losing georgia in the way that like hillary and the democrats and the concept of of liberalism and the concept of progressivism the way that we had to eat shit for losing pennsylvania wisconsin and michigan for years ago. Like what assholes. How could they lose that. That was such an easy pick up for them. That's their firewall. You mother fuckers. Lost georgia you. Have you ever seen the sound of music. You guys loss georgia like oh. It was at santa museum burned. Georgia analgesic is in europe in switzerland. Let's a georgia. Burnt down the lead to comment. Yeah exactly thank you. You know what. I'm going to keep it in fucking music didn't at the time of wonderful nazis so there's some analog check out next season of awesome movie when we cover it which is big deal. I mean you know that demographics changing There is some good young democrats in those senate. Races are gonna be really interesting but what it really comes back to is like mccue cam. Fuck you all an election. And you've got your ass handed g because of it had never necessarily seen that where the rightful winner. Who had it stolen from her. Just like our. I two years from now. We'll see what happens mother fucker and she just blaze tim. She unbelievable it stacey that she was originally who i wanted. Biden the pick of ep I couldn't. I don't think it could work out any better. They're like you like you said. Democrats can get whatever they want like. What more could you want after this Like naveh chance to take the senate they have the house like you know what i mean like. Can't ask for much more dude. So it reminds me a lot of twenty eighteen where again the narrative was like shitting on. Dem's we were supposed to have this big blue wave and it did not on election night. At least it was like it didn't happen and then slowly. I don't know if you remember this but like over the course of like the first few days i like. Oh actually the democrats picked up a couple more seats than we thought and then it was like. Oh wait yeah yeah. Yeah they're like. Oh actually you know what they picked up like fifteen seats more than we thought and then it's like oh never mind. It was a blue wave. The democrats picked up thirty five bucket seats. And i think it's going to be a little bit of a delayed reaction like that for it to sink into the like to to to like national understanding. Will trump didn't win the popular vote last time like the electoral college is another garbage issue that i wish we could von from like it didn't win the popular vote and he got crushed in the popular. Vote this time right. So it's like what is the will of the people there. what is the real will of the people. It's not xenophobia. Diversity ness and you know treating illegal immigrants alike less like less than human you know not ab- lifting the less fortunate. It's it's not that. And you know guys like mcconnell engram like they're they're equally is horrible and one great thing about biden beyond will send us like he knows how to work with those guys they're dirty snakes will do whatever they have to do to stay relevant or in power so you know. He's kinda gotten by the little balls that they have the saggy vowels mcconnell's wife and rance roommate want no part of it anymore grabs roommate. I will say one of my big disappointments though is like some of these senate races that got so much cash pumped into them and i feel like it was just this sort of revolving door for For consultants and for you know for cotton for contractors and agencies and You know media shops to kind of like some of these races senate races there were raising sixty seventy million dollars in credit and the the democrats like you know god bless them but like they were they lost by twenty twenty five points in somebody's races and it's just like what could that money have done. You know i. I mean i wanna beat mitch mcconnell in kentucky more than anybody just as much as anybody but like i don't know man i feel like it goes back to sort of misplaced priorities and it's a conversation for later down the road when you know the the hangover of trump actually being defeated is gone but Like i don't know. I feel like there's a. There's a lot of shit that that didn't go down right and i. I'm not sure if everybody's talking about the right stuff though. I don't know didn't any of you guys. You didn't have a senator up this year. Neither did on needed at florida but They've already launched a big effort to To retire marco. In twenty twenty two which is great. We need to get on the clown by but I don't know did you guys. Don't pay any attention to any of the senate races or no well. Obviously we want mcconnell lose and graham to lose but yale those are nearly impossible task where they are so. I mean i was happy kelly one in arizona. Obviously the georgia things are great. You know so We'll see. I don't know i. Maybe i'm too optimistic right now but like the weight has been lifted and just nice to be able to feel american again. I will get dragged and made fun of by. dsa friends. But i don't care because i will say this. This might be the only situation. Where in places. Like las vegas. That provided a narrow narrow narrow win that widening every day but an you know prove to be loyal place and places like miami where you know there was a big loss in In support versus four years ago versus eight years ago for twelve years ago. I think that there's an opportunity to to actually be heard and actually make a difference as a progressive to a more mainstream democratic You know Apparatus like to actually let let the voice be heard and say hey like maybe let us take a crack at trying to turn out voters down here because you guys are doing. Sending eighty five text messages a day from eighty five different organizations. That shit isn't working. Sending expensive glossy mailers to are the house of two people in their like early forties. Who just take that shit and throw it in the trash. That's shit isn't working like like maybe let us try to you. Know take another crack at that because it isn't working in you mentioned ron numbers about trump. I pulled another run number. That i wanted to run by you. Guys seventy eight million votes for biden right. Three million for the libertarian candidate. Joe jorgenson And other third parties when you combine them together add that to sixty six million votes for clinton from four years ago and four years ago. There were six million third party votes. That's a hundred and fifty two million votes against one man over the course of four years. That's unbelievable our population. As a country is going to start declining. Most people say most anthropologists and scientists say by twenty sixty. Which isn't really that far away. That i think is going to stand as the single biggest rebuke of an individual in human history. A hundred and fifty two million people voting against you saying looking guy and i know it averages the damage is done but hey by the damage could have been much much worse if he had somehow pulled this out so know again. I'm just trying to remain positive on the swan man. Dude just hearing word science and we gotta do things about climate change like This this is like a warm blanket on a cold. Winter's and i like it feels so good to hear this again you know and In and it was weird because there were no lies there was no divisiveness thrown out there on purpose. You know and But he was assertive. And i know rancor no like you know like just like pettiness or whatever you yes. I'm as cynical as they come. But like i just watching him talk. Felt like is actually going to do something at least about covid in the news already getting look sleepy. Joe or blah blah blah. It's like dude one. You can't be a politician and vice president and you know i mean. He hasn't played a big hand in foreign policy. A long time right. You can't be that guy and not know something right. So even if he's slowing down a bit you knew he was going to surround himself with good people and i think right like he said the the administration is going to look like the most diverse administration that we've seen in. I hope it does. God what did we just see this last four years white white white white white white white white. you know. Now's gap commercial or something like that and then I mean he already said like yeah. We're gonna have. Scientists lead the way on cove and it was like you know i can't there a trump rally where they were chanting fire foul cheese like you few. We'll do it and it's like that was here in miami crap garbage person and shame on all these people. Who have you know anyone who knows anything about medicine or viruses or anything bad. She's a hero. You know what i mean. Not just for this. But for what he did for aids in that research in trying to combat that pandemic in the eighties when all was a president. Who didn't seem to care because gay people were dying. You know like. Let's give actively disinterested right. I mean you know what i mean like. Let's go back and let's look put these people back in the place where they deserve to be as honored heroes who have much to contribute. Dude betsy devos out. We have a first lady was a concert. do you know what i mean like. It's going to be a different world. this time. The thing i wanted to mention about that was the secretary of education because of a sort of lesser known rule. That was passed not not that long ago. During the obama administration the secretary of education coming in can wipe out student. Loan debt with literally the wave of of a want or the swipe of the pen Joe biden to his credit has already committed to wiping out fifty thousand Loans that are outstanding The understanding is that he's going to do more of that again. I'm always like you. Dave super cynical expect the worst and hope for the best and see how it comes out. But that's awesome. That's great news as fifty thousand people that are like if you've ever worked under the fucking strain of student loan payments and the student loan debt. I mean that's just an unbelievably freeing situation to change your circumstance. Two points about that wine. Hope for the best expect doors. Good mel brooks reference. Don't even know if you knew you were making twelve chair. I knew at secondly as someone who had student loans for awhile This day you out of recession you've young people. Disposable income you know how they disposable income by not having to spend every penny they have hang interest on their loans not even principals. It's again you're you're thinking short term. All this bullshit is so selfish for short term gains right the way that we handled the pandemic the economy. Well hey man we could started the economy and if we knocked out this pandemic like a new zealand like south korea like so many other countries right then are living normal. Lives again college loans yet. Get rid of them. Their their their predatory you know like no. Let's get let's be done with that these environments stop saying By look at it as an economic opportunity. Same thing with healthcare. All this stuff is progressively should be looked at as economic bastions. Like obviously we don't read history or enough of it in this country but these are all opportunities for us to move forward and advance our society and be bettering. Sorry molina whatever that person. Well if i mean like she's a perfect she's a perfect avatar for one huge aspect of what you're talking about which is The horrible way that we've handled immigration and what a huge opportunity immigration could be for us over the next however many years if we embraced immigration. And you know gave some kind of decent status preferably citizenship to all the people who are working here already paying taxes here already if we You don't open the doors a little bit more instead of you know i mean fuck man. I don't even know how to describe. What the last four years as has been for the world like just the realm of xenophobia. Like being scared of people who come from the global south. But it's fucking terrible and it's it's it's an opportunity. Like i mean like i said before a second ago our population is going to start declining pretty soon which is probably a good thing that globally we should probably have a few less people and it's great if it happens peacefully just over like as like a deci decided choice over time that people decide to have less kids like fine. I don't wanna get into all that malthusian shit but like if that happens like it's great to have more people and to have different types of people and people who can do different types of jobs man and that has not been what the what. The posture has been for the last four years. It's been about. I mean there's been legal. There's been thanks to stephen miller and this this trump white house there have been people who are were naturalized citizens who were deported over the course of the stein. It's a story that like kinda gets talked about a little bit but not that much. And that's probably. I think one of the biggest land mines we avoided in a second term was what they were going to do in terms of whitening this country. Stephen miller is is there such a thing as a domestic war criminal. Because that's what he is right. I mean you know. I mean you know. He's horrible horrible. You know whatever you wanna call you in the fucking. Hey the international. If the international criminal court didn't have specific laws against americans being prosecuted he would. He might not be hitler. But he's hitler right so he's a garbage put the new being and like if we'd never see him again that's fine like he should be in jail for the rest of his life until i got a little thing for last ten minutes or so i wanna i wanna put together a little game. Because he goes no. I'd like to keep you on your toes and call in this game. Hollywood maga- or no maga's now that we we we're gonna lose. We're gonna lose some of our favorite twitter accounts. I think that that are probably gonna like fade away into obscurity. Some of more fun voices in names. This is on the celebrity edition since obviously again. Jason hosts awesome movie year. Which is incredible show that everybody should be listening to and is about to launch a brand new season Jason is on twitter. But not really that much. He's on at j harris comedy. But you're not like a soup. This is why. I picked you for this game. I should be because what so we're gonna push to become more more feel that it's a perverse thing to say to try to get somebody to be on twitter more because like the fuck wants that but what we're gonna do is we're going to alternate between you and dave because dave is also. David goes on twitter a lot but he's very narcissistic doesn't pay any attention to anything except his own and he doesn't interact with anything he just goes on there to self promote another new album out this week. Great dave cares everyone. I know it's election day. But yeah voices in the dark or whatever. Yeah fuck burning for making their their special promotional day during election week. Come on so they're celebrities out there. That are obvious. We all know what their political affiliations are And what i wanna do is play a little game with some of them. Maybe less obvious ones. And i'm gonna tell you until you some twitter handles and i'm going to ask you the gas whether they're maga- not maga- and And then i'm going to reveal the answer with one of their more recent tweets from the last couple of days. So let's let's kick it off with one. That i think you guys might know and i think you might be able to guess okay. So the first one is star of god so many things say anything Sweet covered on awesome movie. Your seasons nine. Hundred ninety nine. I features i did fucking. What's the record store movie. That's my favorite high fidelity fidelity and so many other things at john cusak. Okay so let's start with you. Dave is at junk cusak maga- or not maga- he's got maga- face so testing yes maga- well my right. Tell me okay. No now we got. He's crazy but he's not magazine. John cusack okay. That's right. Jason has one right not maga- most recent tweet from at junk cusak rudy's in a bunker not taking calls. Bill barr real quiet now. Nobody's been seeing. Stephen miller making an enemies list as someone mashes his fucking drapes pompa looking up real estate in dubai lawyer up. Human scum justice is coming. That is tweet. He came came in hard all right so our next one really don't even know what the hell else he. This guy was in other than casino but he was like the best part of casino at real james woods case. So the james i. What do you think dave start with. You yes mega okay. Is that your guests as well. I know he's a crazy asshole. Magazine guy yeah. So mostly you both right admiral. James woods is mega and and just like that. The rioting and looting has ceased overnight and now the half of the country that pummeled america like a battered wife is telling her to put on sunglasses. Hide her black guy. Be a good girl and come together as one her answer. Go fuck yourself. So that is James woods recent contribution to the To the discourse the next one is somebody who was very very important to thirteen year old q. Very very important celebrity. who's sort of disappeared from coal egger. No but really fucking good. Guess damn you're close at kristy swanson exo of course very famously of course very famously. I played buffy the vampire slayer in the theatrical portrayal of what would become an iconic character down the road Dave kristy swanson mega or mega. This is the toughest one so far. I i'm gonna go with no maga- okay maga- just because i like not agreeing with dave jason. You're right again. Your instincts in this game are strong. Most recent kristy swanson tweet. How could fox news ever get behind the idea that most suburban women didn't support trump almost almost every ad on advertisements. She means but she misspelled it. Almost every ad on fox news is geared toward their viewer pillows sheets towels visiting angels exercise bikes a place for mom vitamins touch. She just keeps naming ads of things. One of those thread tweets looking around the room. Purchase looking at her consumer decisions from the last. You really love land. Are you just saying it. Just looking around the room and saying that you love things. This one fellow comic just like our guest today This might be an easy one. But i i picked him more because of the i wanted to be able to read the tweet This is at patent oswald not match. He's patent oswald is great. That's right pat. Now's will very clearly not maga- most recent tweet let the history books. Note the dildo shop next to the trump campaign's presser had better covert protocols than the trump white house came with a picture if a picture of the like. Wash your hands like wear masks if you're coming into this born shop that's excellent. This should show that this one is a little bit of a multimedia You know. I'm gonna show my skills as a live producer. Right now Star of rock in. What man ray. Donovan midnight cowboy enjoy mayors. Jon voight dave you go first magnum. Definitely maga- yeah. He's doing man. Jon voight was a great actor but huge Beyond thank so. We're gonna we're gonna pull something right now now. John doesn't doesn't really do a lot of writing but he does post videos with single word. Single word titles. So i'm going to share this one with you guys right now. Hang on all right. So this is jon. Voight name of the video. Evil biden is evil. Trump must win. He's real he will bring back the people's trust. These leftists are not for the american people. It's the biggest cover up. Ever biden is an extension of the policies of obama that weakened america and we cannot let that happen again. The left are deceitful and have lied to the american people. They've stripped down her mighty powers for their own ego of power to rule the nation's economy he's maga- at the obviously all right. This one's a little a little harder star of a bunch of b movies but most well known in our hearts as being The titular malcolm in malcolm in the middle frankie muniz. I'm totally into say not maga- because he he can't be maga- because he asked if he could shoot a shelter. There's no way that someone who has a crush on lizardo is also trumpian. Yeah i i can't say anything but not maga- after that little factoid. So okay you're both wrong. What is actually maga-. Yes but interestingly enough he's very famously maga- over the last five years but interestingly enough he's deleted all of his trump tweets so the the tweet that i found of his. That is the most funny that i just from the last couple of days that i wanted to bring up. And it's so funny you mention it. Jason he has a habit of just reaching out to famous people and asking to be on their shows on twitter and none of them seem to respond and he asked to perform with a lot of people and do so. He tweeted at one of the property. Brothers the other day and he said hey at mr drew. Scott who is one of the property. Reuters says wanna build me and my wife's dream house. It'd be a christmas miracle for us. She'll just seems so sad to me. I feel terrible. It hurts so bad to think that something. That's happens magal but yet he's asking for a handout. What a shock interesting interesting. I'm glad lizard shot wasn't he like i'll let you. I think he was like. I'll let you just put a leash on me and i'll be your dog or something like that. And there was some issue sir. He probably thought it was a dm or something That's really a. he's still the same size. he looks like he's still about five feet tall. Maybe a hundred and thirty pounds. He apparently gets in lots of accidents and gets hit by cars a lot and is always like cutting having home accidents. He has lots of tweets about like I just fell out of bed. I broke my arm and it's like he's constantly earning him. I'll see. this seems like it'd be a good david spade character. I will we ever cover agent. Codey banks are awesome movie year. Fuck for josh. All right i got three more for you. Guys at kirstie alley naggus. Most well known for only. Is that one popular enough now that i wanted to panic at least recently. She herself or something like that. Yeah that's right and she had. She had disavowed trump in twenty sixteen when the access. Hollywood tape came back on talented to back in the day. You're still i'm still shelley. Long guy yeah kristie. Allie was was. Hey man coming after shelley long and perform at that. Have a level for you know to keep the show going for as long as went and you know to be a vital cog night. We'll dead dead. Took some skill shelley. Long was only there a couple of years. Right and then. Christianity was kirstie alley was the one that was for marais. The salmon diane. No-one thinks about seventy came to the short. No good point see. That's why we have you on for that kind of know. Pop culture analysis political garbage. That's just a bonus that's gonna end up on the cutting room floor. Don't worry this is the only part that's getting put out. Our future depends on what we do here. Now it's so much bigger than a presidency presidents. come and go we remain There's a long tweet will the will they remain our children. Transparent and great grandchildren remain. Will they remain in a country in a corrupt depraved country and be dominated by deception and coercion. Hold the line so the alleys still team trump right is. She might be right without doing any research. I'm going to say yes dave. This one's for you. Okay mickey rourke maga- or no maga-. I'm going to know mega against my better judgment. Can i jump in at so as dave knows. Ama- springsteen superfan mickey rourke also a springsteen superfan so i'm going to say because of the respected the working man he's no maga- but if he turns out to be maga- i could be like yeah. I guess chris christie's one of those idiots you know has been like hundred concerts. But i'm gonna say no maga- because i've heard him talking about springsteen in the way he gets micky work in the character would like kind of blue collar feel. That's where i'm going with it so not only are both of you right. Mickey rourke is the most vehemently anti maga- person on this allowing bunch of very very short just like over the course of many years a bunch of short but directly to the point posts directed at real donald trump the biggest comeback on the planet. Your bully bitch you all knock you out and it just keeps going like that. Can we see donald trump fight for you know. Oh god for a charity to go to trump's Fake cancer kid charity. Last one guys and i think that this might be a little obvious. I don't know how much people know about this guy in terms of like what he's out there doing on twitter so the original hell boy the best. Hell boy at ron perlman mega mega. That'd be disappointing. If he's magassa. I'm going to go with no maga- meet you and also dave your hair of looks like his thank you. You're kind of looks like his. You're both saying no maga- and you're both correct way ron perlman good. Good to see other day. I've hated having to call out in humanity and indecency of these last four years the assault on civility and the american way could only hurt as it did because of our inherent goodness today. We correct course. God bless us all. I think that's a nice little finishes up the celebrity magazine. No maga- really kind of the point like you know that. He summed up there. Is the you know that that's how i felt yesterday. You know it was god. This is what it feels like to be american. I remember this feeling from longtime ago. Dave you spared our guest the indignity of having to promote himself into a forest. And tell us about awesome movie. Your well jason harris and josh bell critic from here in las vegas jason's best buddy. They host a podcast called move movie that produce and they are about to enter their sixth season. This time on the films of nineteen eighty-four and kick it off Is the box office. Champ beverly hills cop and we've got a lot of great Episodes coming up and also year. Be your yes. It's a crazy year But we just the first year that i can remember in my brain right where i had object permanence and like my you know i was old enough to remember. Things was ghostbusters shorewood. This that's one of my earliest memories. Four year old little kid sitting in a in a movie theater watching ghostbusters on my parents realizing that it wasn't a kids movie that was like the first scene that they'll terrifying librarian. My mom kind of like made a move to take me out of the movie theater and my dad was like no stays. Got to see this shit. That's like what. How old are you four. So what you know. Every year we that we kind of dissect different themes come up and I think a lot of people nineteen eighty-four because it was such a year for blockbusters. Pushed the entire idea of blockbusters forward. righty kid ghostbusters. Gremlins there's so in beverly hills cop like we said there's so many good ones stuff like spinal tap might not even make the cut on it because we have so weird worse going so deep so It's a good. It's gonna be good season. The novelization of karate kid was the first chapter book. I read when i was like six years old like two years after the movie came out. How how was it like to stars. Give it like two sex. See the movie or just covering the movie. How about this. Would it be that hard for you guys to read the novelization of every movie that you guys cover and then also have a companion review of the novelization in terms of s in the first episode on lion king in starting their started. Maybe i'll catch catch up sometime after show hosted by all rice. No beans lady stephanie. He'll be down. I'm sure.

An American Pickle (Featuring Jason Harris)

"All. Right. Welcome to another episode of piecing it together the podcast where we take a look at a new movie and try to figure out what movies inspired it, and today on the show we are talking about the Seth Rogan's star vehicle. An American pickle which is out now on HBO? Max I'm not sure if this was ever plan for theaters or if it was always destined to be a streaming movie, but it is available now you can watch it and while we didn't really love it, we definitely had a great time talking about it. Join me for this one is Jason Harris from awesome movie year. You've heard him here on the show before and we got a great little conversation coming up with some good puzzle pieces and he gives me a little bit of shit for maybe being a little bit lazy with. My List but we we have a good time. So that's coming up here in a second, but I do want to remind you to make sure you're subscribe to piecing it together wherever you listen to podcasts and you can always rate and review us over on apple podcasts or pod chaser. Let us know how you're enjoying the show and follow us on twitter at piecing pod instagram at pod. We also have a facebook group popcorn and puzzle pieces where we continue the conversation about all the movies we talk about on the show and. Check out our patriarch over at Peon Dot com slash by David Rosen, where I'm about to post this episode right now. So you may be hearing it before it hits the feed or you're hearing it on the regular feed in the future but regardless, lots of great content over there. You should check out also including some great content from awesome movie and all no beans and my music. So lots of cool stuff over the peach. But with all that said, let's start talking about an American pickle. All right back on the show with us. We've got Jason Harris to talk about a very Julie Movie How's it going Jason? Dave alone and Let's have a nice day again a non sh maybe we'll credential little about the things that are going on in the world and I plan on a lot of etching. Let me tell you. This little. Man. And they will just do it. So we're talking about an American pickle, this new film starring Seth Rogan in dual roles as both. His character and then the characters grandfather who has been frozen in time in rape pickles. Greg's great grandfather. Great Grandfather. Ben Is the kid. Yes I have. I've already forgotten details of this movie that I watched a week ago I mean I guess this is this is what to expect though with movies that are kind of just being like one after another rolled out to streaming without you know without a lot of Polish I. Think we'll get into that. You know you need content. You know I will admit Dave. I have this ranked as the most disappointing film of the year for me. I was really into the preview and we talked about it on. Piecing it together on our trailer episode where I know you have those pieces but men did they execute this? Horribly they should. They should throw this movie in a pickle brine. I don't think. I. Hated it as much is it sounds like you did but I certainly didn't like it too much either just one is as bad as. Bad, as anything I've seen this year how well I you know I think luckily with the format of our show that will at least give us a chance to talk about some movies that we do like in the process and maybe look at a little of what went wrong with this by. Yeah. So we did do that trailer episode, and so we did talk about this movie a little bit before it hit Hbo Max I. WE'LL SEE as we get into the conversation if some of the pieces that we had mentioned do overlap with what we talked about on the trailer show but the movies we had mentioned after washing the trailer and talking about it were. Encino Man Borat fiddler on the roof blast from the past interstellar in Little Miss. Sunshine. So with that being said, I think, let's jump into our actual puzzle pieces are what do you have for your first one? The first one to me was a movie and I based it on what movie involves the most pickling because there's a lot of pickling in this movie than. The movie I remember that involved a huge character trait of pickling was the five year engagement with Jason Segel Emily Blunt and I remember Brian postseasons character I think worked at Zimmerman's Deli very famous Deli in Michigan was always pickling. So that's why I chose the five year engagement because of the. Pickle connection. Interesting Yeah I. Remember if I ever actually saw that movie certainly I don't recall it being. So pickle involved. Is there I'm guessing and I get this from the movie and I guess, maybe I knew this. But is that like a hipster thing is that why they may be used that in that movie and why it's in this one I mean it is but trickles are delicious. So it shouldn't be I mean yeah. Like you know they do talk about all the different things you could pick in. This Roman tickling. Great. So if the hipsters are the only ones doing it then advantage hipsters so For sure well for my first puzzle piece I'm GonNa get. Some. Seth Rogan out of the way I always like to try to get out of the way any pieces that are. You know involving previous films in a filmmaker or stars Repertoire I, I think that this movie kind of continues a theme of a lot of Seth, Rogan movies that I believe started with the Green Hornet but definitely continued along with like this is the end long shy and the night before, and that is this thing where they're all just hyper current and they reference everything that's happening exactly in the moment of the time that this movie comes out and in this get you know you get the APP connection you get you know like ridesharing and you get like all that kind of stuff. That is exactly what's Happening, in the culture at this very specific moment as the movie is coming out and I I'm interested to see how these later era, Seth Rogan movies age because of that because he does seem to always set them where they have to be exactly right now in the moment I think that's an interesting point. You know sometimes you go back and you watch a movie from the early two thousands and like look at that cell phone and it takes you out of it right right then or watch something like clueless and like which is very nineties, but it's also very timeless right so you just you just never know. Yeah he is hyper referential. That's true. Yeah. It seems to be a thing and I mean it works at times there's some good jokes throughout like all of these movies maybe not as many in this one I mean is certainly something he's been doing a bunch of so maybe it kind of wears thin a little bit but you know I don't know it just seems to be his stick lately that and just look how am Well. Going on the thing Dave I'm GonNa do my second puzzle piece which I think you might have just guessing but when I think of a good movie that involves Jews and obsession with death I, think one that you and Josh recommended on. Piecing together maybe year end best of lists which was to dust with. Matthew, Broderick and a very good. Jewish actor whose. I don't know but Giza. Rick. There you go. So but that if you're looking for the themes of this movie done. At a much, much higher level movies. Awesome. So To dust is my second one that's interesting. I hadn't thought of that I love that movie and I hadn't thought of that. But yeah, they definitely are dealing with some of those themes especially the Herschel character and you know what he's gone through and I guess also the Ben Character what he's gone through with his family as well. So yeah, I guess there is a lot of that grief that they're dealing with in this movie and it's just so kind of hidden behind a little bit of a one note joke that you maybe don't even notice it the whole time. Well. Jack The this movie does not do well that movie did do it well, right. So yeah. So all right, cool I will go with my next piece and this was one of the ones that I mentioned in the trailer show and that is Borat the Sasha Baron Cohen film this obviously not even remotely as funny and it doesn't even aim to be as funny. Certainly I mean it it's definitely trying to be a little bit more emotional is not as you know wacky out there and everything, but a lot of the humor does. Come from a place of this fish out of water and you know this eastern European kinda stereotypical played for laughs kind of character, and just how out of place they are in today's progressive culture and that kind of stuff and so. I think even though it's not going for the same kind of laughs it's the year coming from a fairly similar place I. think that is a big stretch my friend. So totally different type of movie, but I was going to reference something in the eighties maybe Moscow on the Hudson would be a better reference pointer Jakko, SMIRNOFF's entire act but. Just. The form is totally different. This is a scripted. Narrative film in Borat is a balls to the wall Kinda. Some scripted but some hit in prank stuff borad your. Also, made me laugh alive. So yeah, that's the biggest difference. But I do want to say that. Yes. Still ones that we did mentioned on the trailer like I. Still Think like Little Miss Sunshine, something like that is. Valid. But I just tried to do ones that we didn't do in the trailer. So so sure sure. Well, what do you have for your next one? My next one is going to be I thought about actors playing two characters and. I think this trend really started taking off with the social network again where. A way they're. Like this isn't This isn't twins. Like. Like the armie Hammer characters but this is a or the week'll vibe boys. As they say but this is one actor basically playing very similar shades of. To family members so I'm going to go into social network, which again, much better movie than this. Well, and I will say the biggest strength I think of this movie. If all the points, it gets our first South Rogin really pulling off two different family members. I. Think Convincingly. Yeah. The problem isn't Seth Rogan. The problem is in the writing and I'm surprised. Rogin let that. Go you know So for instance, Herschel is this. Like scientific anomaly. WHO's been? Brian A pickle liquid for. Hundred Years in any comes back and then it's like when they feel like acknowledging that that's the thing they do. But when it's inconvenient the plot and like Hertzel's entire downfall is like, oh, he says stuff that's horrible and it's like well now we're not acknowledging that he's from one hundred years ago and there's no reason for that. It's so lazy it pisses me off. More than bad movies I hate lazy movies and this is your it also kind of. Leans into a kind of skewering canceled culture and all that kind of stuff and kind of is very wishy washy on what side of anything it doesn't really take any form of aside in what it's trying to say it's not saying anything really well, at one other big problem is we're talking about right now seth Rogan playing those two characters but. Herschel. WHO's probably our main character his entire downfall is caused by ben his great grandson. So who am I supposed to like here? Am I supposed to like young set? Brogan. Of just a huge asshole to his great-grandfather it bag. Yeah. He's our Amazon just happened once it happens three consecutive times and you're like will screw this guy he sucks you know like So that's pretty bad man. So those are two of the major points where this film just like you know what fuck you. American, pickle. Right well, I will move onto another piece and this one actually goes perfectly with your last. And this one I actually saw an interview with. Seth. Rogan where he mentioned it. So I'm cheating a little bit but that's adaptation Charlie Kaufman, Spike. Jones. Film which as you know is my favorite movie but again. This is you know an actor playing two roles but seth Rogan said he looked at that is kind of like a gold standard for how that has to look and how it has to work out, and again you know if we're to say anything good about this movie it Seth Rogan like doing his best with the I. Don't know why he didn't at any kind of Polish to the script or take some time to flesh it out in any meaningful way, but he certainly did. Do a good job of that whole dual role thing and. You know adaptation is again you know completely different movie completely different kind of a thing but as far as talking about the dual role thing, it's Pretty clearly a standard to try to live up to yeah no, you're right and I should have thought about that and I should watch it again. I know like you said it's your favorite but. That's Nikei aged is best in those two different roles are. So that's that's a good pick, and of course, one of those Nick Cage characters as hair like yours. So anytime, I can reference that I will. Thank you. So we're talking about movies with mismatch twins how about the movie twins that was on my list there short snare and veto as twins and You know they get into some Wacky Fund Adventures and I'm sure we're not that far off from seeing a remake with Kevin Hart in the rock or something like that. You know but sure but. Hey he twins can be played by. Two. Different actors, not just the same actors how about the same actor there so I I would like to watch twins again and I remember really liking it as a kid and. I will bet a lot of money that it's better than this movie. I WANNA see. I WanNa see awesome movie or presents twins with you and Josh Bell as the twins. Oh. Yeah. So we make that happen. So. How does that work because I'M We need wigs we need I. Don't know what we need exactly but let's make it happen. All right. That'll go on the Patriot I guess. Well I think that. You know as far as the the guy you know waking up in a different time period genre of movies I did mention Encino man in the trailer episode and this is so so different. But I did have it as a puzzle piece here I. I, just think that that is when you set out to make a movie where somebody wakes up in. A different time period that it's it's just a movie that you look towards and I I honestly haven't seen in so many years I was almost going to watch it for this just to see how it holds up and I remember really liking it back in the day. I don't know about you. But I just felt it was worth keeping as opposed. You know it's as lazy as this movie is your list. You're just rehashing your your trailer fairly only two of them. You can google movies about people who wake up in the future or something like that and found some I did it was difficult to tell you. This is a tough movie. All right. Well, I did something different Dave which you know in the trailer episode I mentioned Little Miss Sunshine is a great example of a film with the relationship with a grandparent and grandchild. So I went down that road again but instead of copying my own self Dave, I, did a little more work and I chose Willy Wonka. which obviously has the great relationship between Charlie and GRANDPA, Joe I don't know but I also think so I also think we gotta chocolate factory in a pickle factory and this kind of you know out of place adventure or man out of place adventure. So I went with Willy Wonka. which is a lovely film I watched it about a year ago I. Think. You know I was trying to think for puzzle piece, which I don't have one here but I I was trying to think of something where at the end like the guys down on his luck and he goes into a church and you know is is showing the way But here we get the Jewish version of that he goes into a temple and a shown the way I I couldn't. I couldn't think of a good example diagnose what's happening on million movies. Yeah, maybe that's maybe a good one. Yeah you're right and I think it has been a lot. But I can't think of any right now either. So instead of that, I'll go to my my last piece, which is a movie we talked about before recording this, which is how Ashby's being there which I think is again. A the exact kind of fish out of water story that that they seem to be going for here, just not quite capturing the charm of, but the the idea of this character being completely out of place and saying all the wrong things. But somehow through a little bit of maybe magical realism everybody just kind of is getting their own more positive spin on the things that he's saying and accepting them in a in a you know a really gracious way. which you know adds to some great comedy and is a great setup for some interesting things to happen which certainly do in being there and don't so much here. Yes. That was a comparison that we were talking about beforehand and I think in a lot of reviews and I kinda think and I'm not saying you as puzzle piece I get it as a puzzle piece but I kinda think in reviews to compare it is like lazy because being there is so great and this is so great and also the finesse that being there does it with is it's perfect right against. Hal Ashby the seventies Peter. Sellers. In the seventies Shirley maclaine in the seventies man home runs right there saw Jersey Kozinski wrote that script. But yeah, this this I know people just keep doing it i. think it makes sense as a puzzle piece with as a direct comparison. I don't think you would make that comparison, right? Right. No. Certainly not as a comparison as an inspiration though I think so I, think that they were going for it and. And again I think part of the problem is I think being there knows what what side of any issues this character is on despite him not really seeming to know himself what side he's on where whereas this movie does is really just strictly going for Kinda cheap laughs when it comes to people misunderstanding. This characters blatant either sexism or racism or or homophobia or whatever like you know whatever the jokes are coming from the this these light versions of all of those terrible things just because he's from a different time and I, think you make a good point. There is like when they want to hit you over the head with it, they do when they want forget it they do. But getting there is they take they take chance seriously everything he says, you know as he moves on rightly, they take him very seriously and add face value and It just leads to so much great comedy so You, know Rafael. Lots and being there so. It's really good if else this movie led us to being there. Which is Actually never seen them was on my list forever but I'm. I'm a huge Peter Sellars, Fan? Oku. How can you not be like one of the all-time great comedic performers and? What a characterization he came up with for that really makes me want to go back and watch this stuff because it's been a long long long long time since I've seen anything with him in it really I think that would be the best thing you could take away from this movie is to go watch Peter Sellers movies. For. Sure. Well, do you have any other pieces? No. The only other thing I could be is like if I looked up, oh, what are the most disappointing movies I've seen? All right. Well, isn't that case I'll do the finished puzzle here that includes the five year engagement all these hyper hyper of the moment seth rogan movies to dust. Borat the social network at tation twins, Encino Man Willie Wonka, and being there. So of course, I cheated my way through half my list I'm sorry I'll do better guys I'm I'm GonNa hold you to that. On the next episode we'll do another trailer episode coming up and then we'll cover one of those and Yeah you better you better bring it next time buddy. Closing thoughts about this movie. Other than some of the things that we've said so far about how disappointed we are in it. You know I like that streaming offers films said take chances and I think we're seeing more of that and this was a chance to take by just don't know how it got through other than the if like seth. Rogan, pushed you know like there's just so many mistakes on this and it Simon rich who is a well known writer you know so I just don't know and it's based on his own story if I'm not mistaken so I think so yeah. Yeah, there's there's way better stuff that's been made for streaming and. This Hey man just like a back in the day when you used to go see movies in the theater stood out all going to be heads baby. Can Be Great. But Yeah Hbo Max Not exactly having having a good average so far this and Greyhound although the documentary Apple. TV and so is. So is this the first? Then? Is this the first I don't know, but once great on HBO, Max is the Elmo not too late show which I watched with my daughter. Really funny. Fun Talk Show Yeah. Max needs some more stuff than they don't have anything yet. No. They have plenty of stuff. They have a bunch of Hobbes's they have like the AMC hub they have the. I mean I mean new stuff though I mean new stuff. Stuff what are you talking about? Like everything to be streaming is killing. Their. Money stuff cartoon network they have this studio jubilee, which I can never pronounce all the enemies. Stop. Hey Stop Hating on HBO I love h they're just you know this was the rollout but yeah, this was bad movie. But Hey, this was on any streaming platforms would still be a bad movie dave that's right and no matter which one it landed on. That's what would have happened well, is there another movie you watch recently that you did like that you'd maybe want to Recommend Orleans yeah. I will recommend to movies that are streaming that are you have to rent But are both great both of my top to actually I do three at this point So driveways which I know you unjust talked about on the midway. That's really good when briandennehy. Movies if not his last day in. The lead actresses. Awesome. She's in. Watchmen also, and she's Great I WanNa, see that it sounds really good first cow that's a that's a favorite of a lot of people right now and. Never rarely sometimes always, which is a very tough movie about a suburban teenager in Pennsylvania who has to travel to New York for an abortion a very tough watch but. Maybe. that. That one so far all three are probably a my top ten. I would say probably two of them will stay there for the rest of the year. Nice Nice about picks. Why don't you tell some people about awesome movie year what's going on over there? Awesome. Movie Year is in a very cool season right now are nineteen, seventy, seven and we're. What we are learning as we watch more films of Nineteen, seventy seven is just how strange storytelling was back then in how unique in how individual it was. So many really cools odd movies of that time, right so We're doing seventy seven. Then we'll kind of go forward than back again different years We are all over the social media. Awesome movie. Your Dot Com awesome movie you're on facebook and instagram awesome movie pod On twitter Jason Harris comedy on facebook and Instagram Jay Harris comedy on Twitter Gopher Jason on the web and on letterbox. But yeah, I I'm really proud of Austin movie year and. A good. Good. Good. All right. Very good job producing. Well thank you Jason for that. Wonderful wonderful compliment and thanks for being here and I'm I'm looking forward to another trailer episode with you in a couple of weeks from now already got the movies picked out. So I'll be sending you that list that's exciting and we should say we've watched two of them from our last trailer episode you might have watched more right? I just watched project power yesterday and you watch tax collector, right? Tax Collector we just did an episode on, which is an absolutely terrible news. So that's we did what? Six trailers. Yes and four you've seen four they've all been very bad. Yet, this isn't been the best month. Still an awesome movie year but not an awesome movie month I should say. We I used to go here not very bad but just not good, right? Yeah exactly. It's a very average movie, but it was enjoyable though definitely enjoyable not worth episode but an enjoyable movie if you're if you want to.

Doing Great and sitting out in my chicken yard, watching them. Peck at things Well, you know making with birth. I have every white winged love in in in the town that I live in in Sunnyvale. At my my bird feeder I. Swear yesterday. There were twenty white winged up. We counted and I. Couldn't see it real well and what's up with that I mean it's like they say you know you. Whistle whistle over here fellow. This is where he get all the grabbing. They go through like a whole thing of it every single day to the point now big. They are little pigs like I'm like come on, Dude. You need to start writing the check if you're gonNA, eat them. Are they also like anyways. It'd be so if you keep out the food out regularly then they're gonNA. They're gonNA marquee down as a good place to be. Oh Yeah, but I love him. I Have Blue Jays and white winged love and the tunnel cardinals, and some of the ones I'm not even sure what they are but It's it's. It's really it's so fun to connect with nature and so many health benefits from it as well as you and I both know many people out there listening know that, but today one of the things that I. I want that. We want to talk about that you WanNa talk about the dangers of Floride. We haven't talked about this in a while, but so many people are unaware of what they're putting in their mouth, and their babies mouth when they're brushing their teeth, so you know, let's talk about the dangers of Floride, so you. You say it's a byproduct of the fertilizer industry is that? Is that right? Yeah so what it what? It is the by product. You know so a lot of times when you make anything there's. Some excess that results are remains from when you're making something and in the fertilizer industry there's this by product, and it's called fluoride, and it used to be something that they had to pay tax on to dispose of you know as an industrial waste, and then somebody somebody clever along the lines decided well. Maybe there is for this waste, and we could you know reapportion it and make some money off of it versus having pay money to get rid of it. And in doing so you know a bunch of different testing with the item, and then landed on the fact that it actually does sick in your bone calcium so he's you know it makes it makes your teeth thicker makes your bones thicker and They ran with that and basically you it paints a very narrow perspective of the product because it's. A lot of things will do one thing if you look at them in an isolated isolated information, but the negative. Yeah the negative side of for is that although it makes everything thicker, it makes it much more brittle, though more calcium year. Now me, teens, you know the they're going to be thicker, but they're not going to be as strong as dense since they would be otherwise so let's maybe less cavities initially, but once you get a cavity. Do much more damage. Than, it would have done otherwise not to mention. It's actually affecting your whole system, not just your teeth you know putting. Has Yeah. Your mouth absorb so much so you're. Brushing your teeth with I twice a day every day, or if you're drinking for in your municipal water supply, it's going to affect you all systemically, which then means as you aid? Your bones are going to be more brittle. Which is obviously convenient? yeah it. For a lot of reasons you know there's lots of pharmaceuticals that are sold around. With A. You know degeneration of it's. It's a what a scam like seriously. How do you know? How did we end up like this? Well, you know, it's one of those things where I. Always feel like this spiracy therapists. Why talk about something like this? But then you know it's almost like commonsense just when he's you and you and I had this half a million times, but it's like you follow the money you know. Where does the money go? And when you look at Floride, watch all kinds of stuff online, and then even on Netflix there's some documentaries. Documentaries these days they talk about fluoride. And it's like there's all this undercover footage of city workers putting it into the water supply, and it's like on the bag or skull-and-crossbone, dangerous toxin this and that one of the videos that I watched a few years ago, showed some of the fluoride, actually pouring out of the bag onto a concrete slab, and it just eight through the concrete slab like within an infant I got. Here is. Was Crazy. We? Water. There's not there's so much work to be done and so much corruption to fight. I, mean It's unbelievable really I. don't even you know this is a big problem? Though and here's why because you told me that there are links to major diseases and mental illness with. Let's talk. Let's talk about that. Well all all your all of your you know Buzzword, diseases or illnesses are related to fluoride. Cancer Diabetes anything autoimmune typical. run-of-the-mill adhd any sort of you know mental abnormalities, and the reason is because it's a toxin. It's not just a neuro toxin. It's just a full-body toxins, so if you're putting into your body in any sort of. regular, regular maintenance, or high level dose, or even just something that you're doing every day multiple times a day and a little bit. What is doing is it's just you know sending out red alert throughout your system. And that taxes the person Saudi and so I'm not gonNA. Sit here and say. with any authority that floor causes cancer, but what right does is it causes your body freak out, and when your body out over constant poison being put into it, then things like cancer and other autoimmune diseases and other just degenerative diseases are so easy to creep back because your body's defenses are down. Wow and what about the mental illness, part of it? That's really scary. Yeah scary, but especially mental illness is really scary because you know that. That's just. That's a big thing. It's just a really big thing and and I see where the authority on that because I grew up in a home with a brother who is mentally ill and it and it can ravage a family. Oh it totally can I mean and you just gotTa. Think so what it's doing is this is a toxin. This is something that is essentially killing off killing off your body's natural defenses and one thing you got to think about when you're ingesting it in something like your tap water is that it's going into your stomach and it's completely. It's completely destroying microbiome completely destroying your gut destroying the lining of your intestines. You know it, it's it's wreaking havoc on your system. And at the same time, your mental mental balance is all energy. It's all based on energetic impulses, and the energetic impulses often originate originate from a large percentage from your gut from your from the Vegas nerve that is actually you know tied into all of the nerves that are in what you would think of as your got your intestines your digestive system. They're all interconnected. So when you're destroying the bacteria and not even just bacteria, any micro organisms that live in that area of your body in the singles are going to be all off, and that sort of thing over time the way that the way that the neurons work in your brain is by following a path of least resistance following a groove, and if you. Essentially, create a create a groove that is one of mental illness. The signals aren't quite matching up in your even if you stop using the Florida. If you start taking medication for the group is still there and you have to do this. Con- got conscious work to rebuild yourself and a lot of people wouldn't even ever make it that far. You know, but you'd be told as Yeah until illness prescription you know, take prescription, and that would be that and really the underlying album would still be there, so it just creates. What I feel like our problem on top of a problem on top of a problem and it's. Silly because. You know the research. Is there you just have to? People just have to take care of themselves and be their own advocate, and you know when you go fluoride, the first three websites that come up my search engine are. are. Paid for by companies that are obviously supporting fluoride or supporting. Pace industry or supporting, so it's almost like fake news, and it's obvious because you can go onto the page you can see where this website originated from. But if you were kind of being lazy about your research, you go on there and you say Oh, this website it's called you know the foundation for dental hygiene, and it says right is really good for you. It's like you you have to. Really it's work you know. You've got to put the work into. Educate yourself to understand you know. Don't just be spoon fed. What what like what I? I Dunno society wants to think you know criminal, yeah! Yeah, we'll time is money and money is time. Most people are struggling to pay the rent every single day. You know hand to mouth the where the lot underpaid people in this world and they don't have time to research stuff like this, and and that's one of the reasons that I absolutely love what I do, and what I do with you in particular is dig through all this stuff and get that kind of information out to everyone that needs it, so they can live their best life. I think it. Important I do, let's go to break and then when we come back more with autumn Connolly. Always, always a pleasure, we'll be right back everyone. You're listening to one life radio. Ziggy played guitar. Jamming we've, And the spiders from. The bladed. Made too far. Game. Then we were. Sneaky! Is screwed down and. Like some? Gone By. It could be then. Came on so. Well. Snow. While supplies. Last. Guy. Green Wave. Welcome back, everyone. You're listening to one life radio that was David Bowie fame I had my on my road Kester I had my sound off and I didn't realize it and I I was wondering. Why sounded like I was underwater. I hadn't done that before, but you know I invited Dean Dean, the dance machine, my cat into the into the studio, and he kind of tripped me up so welcome back I've got autumn commonly on line. She lives in the sky. Islands of Arizona where they're three Kiddos and our animal babies. She is also a self, taught Vegan Chef, a serial, Gardner and an avid believer, end and the teacher of the healing powers of meditation. We're talking about the dangers of fluoride today and we're going to be talking about safer alternatives to fluoride, which is oil polling and so, what do you want people to know anything else about fluoride before we move onto the oil pulling autumn? Just such a hard one for people to get over a lot of people it's it's something that's kind of been drilled into everybody's and says they since they were a child about the benefits of Florida and how it's essential for healthy teeth and bones, and all this and I just would really just ask people to really take some time and do some research, and you know you know, educate themselves on it, and of course make their own decisions, but I think you'll find once view. Educate yourself on the truth of fluoride the average for. Probably a detriment to their health. Well in a lot as you said a lot of cities put it in their water, and so what? You're really vulnerable especially, if you don't have the money to go, buy bottled, a fancy water and most people don't really like. Oh, we'll drink water, and then we wonder why. The country's so damn sick. You know so many people have so many problems. Mental Health Issues Depression. You Know Heart, disease, cancer, you name it and if we're dumping this in our water, beware. We need to do something about it I was just. There's so much work to do there. Really is it's it's it can be very overwhelming, but. What what are we gonNA really can be well. Yeah, it really can't be water. A huge problem I always encourage people to do water tests, you know the water tests are inexpensive. A lot of times big home improvement stores will give out free water samples skit. And, just do your do your research or I at your house. You know and have your water tested and see what they'll fluoride in because there are safe ranges, safer ranges and a lot of times, cities overlook them and just make sure you know just I i. don't know I. I know that I know that why they're watering are expensive, but nothing you know nothing's as expensive as having to fix the health problem oh. Gosh, yeah, no had your hands down. Yeah, no, it! Yeah, absolutely well, you know I've got a natural well on my property that I've never tapped into its I'll have to take a picture it's. On the eighteen hundreds you should see how It's just really beat up old. It's kind of an eyesore, but I was thinking with all just covid, nineteen thing and everything that's happened this quarantine, and how important the the health of your water is at a and I. Don't use any pesticides. You know that my property. Yeah, I'm going to find someone to help me figure out how I can go to the well and get water every day or pipe it into my house or something right? Yeah, it's great the mineral content. Content I mean a any anyone that you'd hire to do that with obviously have all the information, but you definitely have to have that. Water tested as well for a lot of heavy metals and stuff, but once you get around that sort of thing I mean. The mineral content of well-water can be just wonderful. I mean it's almost my hands. Something buy in a bottle. The about high jacked up mineral, content, waters and stuff. You know you'd have your own little source of it back there. That's good. Oh, yeah, I knew easing. Crazy water in mineral wells. About an hour outside of Dallas one of the best water, you can buy Carol elder, the CEO and a wonderful woman, their family. It's a family run business now in minerals well but I. Mean that water famous and it really people don't understand like the connection between their water and their health That's how the story started. You know with crazy water. Is that a? A woman who was crazy found herself in mineral wells Texas where a lot of celebrities used to go to this hotel that they're that they're actually renovating or at least they were, and she started out in the water and Mineral Wells Texas, and because they had trace amounts of lithium minute, her mental illness disappeared basically, and that's where they got the name crazy water. Does so. Crazy. Did you know that Yeah Yeah I I mean at the back of my mind I. Knew IT I. Just amazing. Isn't it funny? How just some little? Some little abnormality in a water can have such a big effect. It's just like you know. It goes back to the connection of all of us being so in tune with major and in June with the earth you know like all the natural healing elements, or they're already just sometimes. It's a little bit harder to find them. Then you know it's not as easy as a pill bottle, but when when you find the right solution when you land on the right natural solution, it often is something that completely reverses things almost immediately, and it's pretty amazing to see that. I mean to hear stories like that I think. I know I love I love that story and you know that's one of the Jason Harris. That's one of the big things is storytelling which I'm not so sure I'm that good at like. I said I. Let them a new show of a little details kind of tripped me. But I I told that story pretty well. Right so I'm getting warmed up. Oh my gosh, it's so good to have you on the Air I. Love Having you on the air with us. I do so many. To fluoride is oil pulling? Let's quickly go through this because I want to do a mantra today. You have a mantra that you're going to do for protection. It's the. Gray Nama I'm probably set it wrong, but it's You say that it's used to protect your physical body, but it can also be used for emotional and spiritual protection so I love that. Yeah, all around protection and I picked that one because it's actually one that I use for my kids before they go to the dentist. Really something that's scary. It's a good way to remind yourself that you know. You're being protected by some sort of higher power even if it's a higher power. You Trans the energy from a negative feeling into a positive feeling. Then you know you create your own reality of protection, so yes, the one that I again to my kids and I thought it went along well with the fluoride and the oil point discussion. Absolutely absolutely you know when I talk to you autumn. I I often think just so cool. You're so out there. You're so right on so many different ways I feel like you were dropped down from a spaceship or something. Sort of alley and being. It is. When my life with like that explanation I like I like your weirdness. Like you, okay, so oil totaling. How do you do it? But reality is easy. Pulling in in one easy step is get some oil and put it on a tablespoon first thing in the morning and. Put it in your mouth and Swish it around It's twenty minutes is usually the time that's recommended I know people think that's a long time, but twenty minutes in the morning while you're showering while you're getting your coffee stuff, w while your teams in whatever way in the morning twenty twenty minutes you have to keep coconut coconut oil us right? You really didn't use any oil. Coconut oil has some. Some added added benefit to it, but you can really use any oil any high quality, oil, olive oil, sesame oil sunflowers eat oil, those sorts of things, but I do prefer coconut oil. You know it just kind of, but if I don't have any coconut oil off his stick any oil that I have in my mouth and swishing around, you know the Enamel. Your teeth is porous, so you're listening. Through and it's, it's not way that kind of like to explain it is. You know their little Tennessee Titans. He holds that are in your teeth. You know they're not really cleaned as thoroughly as you'd like with a with a Bristle of toothbrush. It's not like you're getting every little hole, so you know it's akin to a fund, you know. Pick a gun GE- and get a sponge dirty would. Would be easier to clean. That's fun to it. This being the novel on your teeth with all the little holes. Would you take a bristle brush to try to clean the sponge, or would you run the sponge under some running water? So okay I'm this is using. The oil is akin to the running water. It's going through the chiefs through the announced actually like pooling drawing out sane drawing out. Of drying out any sort of build up that you may have in there, and allowing your teeth to again, my constant seen here is killed themselves because once. They're not all gung up with this foreign stuff in there. Then the teeth are just like the rest of you there all living breathing part of your body in a way and the. Best to their full potential is what causes with what makes oil pulling able to reverse tooth decay and reverse gum disease. Then reverse all these mouth. Yuckiness is that we'll get? I want my kids to be at their greatest potential, so we're GONNA. Have to discuss this next week. What we're going to have to go to break here in a minute, so let's do our mantra for. For everyone out there to protect your teeth and we've got Jason Harris. Coming up right afterwards, so autumn take us to. It gives us that Martha. Everybody close your eyes and big breasts in. okay.

Thank you so much you can talk your at. Meditate with automatic gmail.com as I said I've been teasing it since the beginning of the show Jason Harris, coming up off of the SOFA harder to persuade hinge your persuasion.

Thanks for that, that was quite an intro, those very impressive. I know factors. Well, thank you so much. That's an honor coming from someone like you, but it really is great to have you on the show and I have to tell you know the cell phone out of persuasion. Right out of the gate. You had me truly laughing out loud, and I wrote my social media posts that had food in my mouth I would have spent it all over the place because. I love. Your I love your sense of humor. I just love it. so in the second paragraph you you know you really set the stage for a great reed and I'll just read it real quick you said CEO of the creative advertising agency mechanism. I belong to one of the least trusted professions in the world, the only people considered more dishonest according to a Gallup survey are used car, salesman and members of Congress, and then you went onto. Write this at these attitudes a lot about the nature of influence in the modern era, so I'm gonNA. Ask you this. What do these attitudes show? What can everybody learned from this? Why I think these attitudes show that you you. You know the NF ineffective news. Era when you don't know what to trust and what's real and there's just information out there, and we are really bifurcated into our own echo chambers with people that think believe. The same way we do in order to really sell and be. Today. The fundamental building block is really trust and trust build and breeds influence, and that's what I was trying to say is is yes I'm in one of the least trusted professions in the world and the only way to overcome that is through transparency and trust, as you try to play the long game in business and build relationships and try not to be a transactional thinker where you're just trying to do one cell to the other to the other, but it's really about playing. The long game and building long term relationships with both in your professional and personal life. you know the the Gosh, there's there's so much I want to cover with you. Why don't we start with the four principles that you outlined in your book? Let's talk about those because there at the very at the very core of this, th the four principles that we that you build. In order to to be Gokul persuader. Yeah, master, influence, or whatever you, WanNa either either either works but. These are been in the low trust. Business of I've been a madman and advertising for. You Know Geez twenty something years, and what I've really found in building my own company and. And in in this industry I think it relates to anyone in any. Industry in the four main principles. Which I'll run through really quickly, and then we can have a conversation about him, but the the first one is the I, give of being an original and really being yourself. Everyone else is already taking that same as Oscar Wilde quote. It's about letting your your freak flag fly. It's about putting your personal idiosyncrasies out there and not being. one person in one. boardroom. Rather phase of your life, but really trying to always try to be true to yourself and what you believe, and that sort of at the core of what I call being being original and the second. You want me to go through all of them, or do you want kind of whatever buddy to me go? Okay, you know what I'm so honored to have. Have you on the show you can. You can talk about whatever you want I just your. Your book is masterful by the way, and it's my new Business Bible It's going to be a requirement to read in order to work in my team or with my team. I just feel it's so masterful. And how long did it take you to write it? It took me. Three years to write it. from from start to finish and. trying to. Make a educational business book, but also leaving personal stories and pop culture. Thoughts in there Yeah. It took me about from start to finish took about three years. Yeah Yeah I've I. figured it took you a while because it's just like I said it's. It's incredibly well written. It's entertaining your personality. Your character everything comes through in it and I love kind of your east coast flying I really do. I could really relate to us like someone being someone being slippery, you know. Are you know? I. Don't know never be losing to me. There's so many parts of the book that I that I absolutely love It's it's incredible book it is, but you know I. Know How important it is just to see things from they have a willingness to see things from a different point of view, and you kind of a dry. You address that in your book you can you, can you? Can you discuss the importance of focusing on our shared human humanity during this device of time that we are living in right now? Yes and and this is you know some of the principles that I've talked about in the book, and and as as you put through it and read it. You'll know that some of those principles you know. The four main ones are original, generous, empathetic and soulful, and the thing that we're talking about now is the third one which is about empathetic and shared humanity and some of those principles. As, you read it better that you'll be like okay I already do those like I was born. You know maybe maybe you were born being an original person. Being yourself maybe weren't born a generous person. Maybe you weren't born seeing things from other people's perspectives, so it's really like you take this book and sort of know what you're already have, and then you try to practice and make these things. I have it in one of for me. Was this idea of empathetic and trying to develop a national a a natural curiosity about? Trying to really understand at the end of the day that we are all ninety nine point, nine percent, share the same DNA. It's point one percent that makes us different, but at that point one percent that we all focus on, and we focus on that not to understand where other people are coming from, but to say if you don't believe the things that I believe in, you know that your idiot or you're wrong, or how could you think that way? It's trying to go level deeper behind why what is compelling someone to think that way? Why do they have that sort of? you know I system and an example that I like to tell is a good friend of mine. If you remember when there was a lot of the. Anti Immigration You. Know whatever side you're on on that issue. I didn't quite understand why he was. He was. So you know we're all immigrants in this country? Why? He was so sort of anti, immigration. Into into the building a wall and keeping you know really nationalism, and that that feeling whatever your political views are, and so instead of of arguing or trying to persuade from a sense of why that. Why I personally thought that was wrong. I wanted to him to tell me a story of where that comes from. Like what's what's all behind that and you know he? He told me a story of how he was. His family was homeless for a few years because his his dad had lost his his job to an immigrant. Then you know that that was his livelihood, and how it impacted his family, and so it came from sort of just bridging that understanding, and that curiosity and trying to list listen more than just judge really helped me understand the the what was the motivation and what was behind once? You understand that then you can have different type of conversation you can. Can have a deeper conversation and I think we're just so quick to have our own set of beliefs and not try to see why people formulate their their their set of beliefs and I think that's really important in relationships and really business to to really understand where where your clients coming from. You know what someone you work from coming from yeah. Yeah well I'm thinking of so many different stories. I wish we had a couple of hours to talk. A very important topic talking about I think people that have worked for me before that you know one girl in particular which was five years old She's going through the immigration process. Her family was and They're Mexican and or Latino and at five years old or father got pulled over for Dwi and that was you know one that happened? They had to basically go underground. and It's just yes. Yeah, and you hear stories like that, but she was, she was she was. She was born in America. You know maybe she whatever? She was brought over maybe to I. Guess She was born here because then she'd automatically be an American right. Isn't that how it works, right? Yeah yeah, but yeah, and so I think she was brought over when she was like two, and but it was five, but she was five years old when it happened and hear stories like that and heartbreaking. She's now got her legal status, but then family went through hell. During that process, you know from one little error, you know you know just a one little error, a judgment and having while intoxicated, and so there's so many stories out there like that that and we we do need to not judge one another so many so many. That we do that and it's just not cool. I started campaign couple of years ago after seeing a homeless I was, it was a stop light, and I gave a homeless person money and I felt like somebody was looking at me so I looked to my right and sure enough there was a woman and Alexis. It was pointing her finger at me and nothing like shame on you don't give. Give them money. I could like reader lived and I thought how dare she, you know. Don't touch me and I won't judge you. And I got kind of upset about it that I thought you don't want a t-shirt. So I made a t shirt, and then sold it my business, and David Away a lot of times. In fact, I've got a bunch of them in my garage sale. Hurry because we always a visa. Don't judge me on the front and on the back and I won't judge you. Oh Man I love I. Guess So, so that's exactly. I I need I need one of those t shirts that's. To. Such a good way. I'll send you all about that, and you can give them away, but we've got to go to commercial break.

You're a truly a leader in this world and you know I wanNA talk about the creative lions and the focus on four key issues. Can we talk about that? Yes, sure so the creative alliance is an organization that I co-founded. Really with the idea of which I talked about in the book. The idea of solving this is one of the principals and the idea that. Trying to do more to give back to the world, then just you know, earn a living and make money. And have your friends and family. What can you do to make the world a little bit better place, and as you talked about at the beginning? Being in such a dishonest profession. after a while you, you know you realize you're making ads and marketing for these big brands the world and to me that that wasn't enough, so I wanted to do something else. And so my skills are I know how to do advertising and marketing so I started a group called the creative lions, which has over a hundred companies, and we really focus on a couple of carriers. We we've. We fight against sexual assault Anti Anti, racism. We try to do everything we can to get people to come out and vote and gender equality, those are sort of the four key areas that we focus on and these companies come together, and do pro bono work to to use their skills of campaigns and advertising to try to give back to the world. And that's that's another. Part of of the of the book, which I talked about striving to be inspirational and trying to do more that to inspire other people and to show that you're. You're here on this planet to do more than just. work you know you. You gotta be giving back and trying to do more, and that's really the idea behind cell phones. Yeah, well, you talk about I. Use your powers for good that we're didn't something right? We're all good at something absolutely. And be anything you know like your audience. Whatever someone you know, there's a there's a you talked about homelessness earlier. There's a friend of mine in London. WHO's a barber and he uses? That's a skill. You can cut here. He uses out to go out and clean up homeless folks and make them feel better and give them a haircut, and and make them feel common humanity because he talks to them for an hour while he's cutting their hair on the street in the matter what skill you have! You can apply that skill to to give back in and do something. everyone has skill right. So you got you gotTA. Go. Now it's nine. That's such a sweet story. That's such an incredible story and You know a lot of people on mentally ill, and and and maybe more attention than any of US they've they've clearly been been hurt very hard by something in life and I always and people will say me more said I found that they why you do that, you know not close friends. But people say you know you're you're you're just encouraging them to you? Know for their addiction I'm like you know what if that five bucks or whatever helps them to have a better day than than? That's okay, it doesn't matter. It's not my right to judge where they are in their life. Don't you think? Very healthy weight and look at. Yeah so it's a good way.
