Today's about something I posted on our stories and numerous people said what's the link doc and I'm going to share it on our website for this episode this episode guide but I bought a product organizer off of Amazon. It looked amazing. It transformed my entire bathroom. I might need one and I actually found out about it in our facebook group so that should join. There's tons of awesome tips in our our facebook group and I purchased this Ella Ki Ki L. O. K.. I it's a spinning makeup organizer. You're and it was very took two seconds to put it together. I had like an overflowing volcano of product. Kinda just heaped heaped on my kitchen in my bathroom and my bathroom kitchen and my bathroom guys like I said I'm hung over a little my sink in my bathroom and and the thing is tiny and I fit a ton of stuff on it. It's kind of actually amazing like there was a moment whereas I don't have enough stuff to put on this thing. Wow but it's great and spins around so you can just kind of twirl it find your thing put it back. I love it. It really has helped me get organized and then doing that than motivated me then Organiz and throw out the rest of all the products kind of spilling out of my bathroom shelves. That's the best feeling feeling. It felt so good. The stuff I was collecting was like years old addict. So you've got this product thing. I think it's changed your life. I think what happens is when you organize one small piece of things it immediately makes you want to then organize everything else it. It felt like I did the little I cleaned up the sink area of things and toss some stuff and then I just like turned. We have this shelf. The unit is over our toilet in our bathroom. And that's where it just like my mounds of makeup and perfume and samples and just things I kind of horrid are her and I was like you know what I've wanted to tackle this for so long I'm going to do it. And the most annoying thing. I don't know if you're this way but all obsess about this task I have to do and I'm like I don't want to do it then I do. It takes twenty minutes. Yes it's like. Why did I put this off for two years? I totally feel you on that because I do that that all the time I also and this is not what you're supposed to do but I keep in use makeup for years. Yeah I have powder like a face powder that I've had. It's over five years old. I still use it. Oh I have like disgusting blush that like is only the sides are left. It's it's gross. Like why am I keeping. Is there still a little bit left. It's diagnosed container. I know it's disgusting but that's sounds really satisfy it was I even washed Out All the containers. I did something similar today actually. I bought a shredder. ooh that's a satisfying satisfying activity to shred paper is real satisfying. Because my I think I talked about this last week my office is kind of not great. You you have a Home Office. I have a Home Office and you posted pictures of it on our instagram stories. Yes or I think I posted on my instagram either way. Yeah what you seem seemed to be stressed about. Clutter a lot of pile tons of paper everywhere of paper everywhere. Did you start using the show. I started using the shredder shredded. Some stuff in my friend. Amanda is coming over on Thursday and she said and I quote can I come over and get high a an organized your office. She's younger but I said great. That sounds Great Amanda. So Oh she's GonNa do that. We're going to organize my office together. I think I don't think we're GonNa do the whole thing. Because it's there's a lot to do but if we can just like make a dent ident that will be really satisfied also now that you are fulltime working from home as a writer yes having your own space base having a clean clear space to work in his really helpful. It's the thing I feel like. I can't really do the work I WANNA do without having a space that feels clean and clear and like mine Right now it just feels like like I look at it and I'm like Oh that's how I feel kneeling and so hard to get anything done. It's so hard to get anything done. I just see even if you were an office like my old job. Where when I worked for H.? One my desk when it was cluttered I couldn't function. Yeah I would would not be very productive well. I worked worked at rolling stone for like a year and a half and yon winner is who's the owner of rolling stone is notoriously obsessive. You've about cleanliness. And he he didn't spend the whole year in the office. He spent months like at his one of his many homes in Life Sun Valley for him but we would get emails saying that he was going to be in the office and we needed to make sure that are workspaces. Were clean and they would bring in like bins for people to throw out papers their stuff and yeah and he would like walk around around and if you had stuff on your desk you would hear about it like he would tell. Your boss didn't like to see CDs out on the desk. We were Music Kazini. I mean yeah but it did did like force you to keep clean death. I think also one thing. I'm observing as a parent errant. Is that Like I'm not an inherently neat person. I'm a messy and won. Both my daughters are neat and you have to teach children doctrine. We assume it's just something like you can do. Go clean up your room. You don't. It's something that I think. We have to teach each either either our younger people or as an adult have to learn how to do like I definitely have am trying to teach myself how to be organized and be neat because it's not for a lot of people certain inherent like no it's it's a real struggle. Yes and I can see it especially one of my children. She's just like a collector and Haroon is filled with stuff. And I'll be like go pick up your toys and then I'm like she doesn't know have never taught her Leeann and like you have to teach by example example. Yes which. I'm also terrible at but I'm trying to be sensitive to the fact that like I never felt my. My parents were like neat people but I never I wasn't wasn't I don't know something to teach our children lamai pair. Well no I feel like I. The thing I struggle with is coming up with systems. uh-huh and I would like to come up with an office system like I. I haven't released successfully come up with that many systems. I'm not that good at that. And my husband is very disorganized and cluttered like he thinks the organized one and I'm like I'm only organized relative to you but I'm not that organize and my natural state is cluttered. I have to really work at it. It's awesome upsetting. I've really struggled with self esteem in this area a little bit like you. Don't feel good about yourself now when you aren't able to to just organize and be like it's not even been clean. It's being needs her tidy. Yeah I have the same Leanne. I have the same anxiety when I look at really really pretty bullet journals. Forget it like I. Just don't have that brain either and I I just I just I just can't and so when I see these like beautiful like when I put on Instagram my office a few people sent me like instagram's of people who do like like pretty organizing things and I look at them and I was like okay and then I went to the container store website and it was like and I just like I don't know it just felt very overwhelming and and I was like I'm never going to have a labelled container of like tape. Yes yeah you have to work within who you are. Yeah exactly and I will say like the people who make those beautiful bull journals. I think that's relaxing for them. No totally it is and it's not relaxing for me no anxiety. Heidi has attack. But you know what's what is relaxing for me which I figured out is having just a Shitty notepad and scrawling rolling to do lists at night before I go to bed on this note pads really smart and that kind of calms me down like just seeing what I have to do. The next day Even if I don't ever really liked consult the list there's something about just the act of making less but it's like I literally like I. It's not pretty but but it's it's getting it out of your head. Yes the most important thing exactly so we're going to pause now for a word.
"jenny han" Discussed on The MMQB: 10 Things
"The saints, and the pulse had to do with what you should be looking for your team's next head coach that has always Jenny Han Connor of it for the news, and we wrap things up the six pack year Russian most Gump. Are welcome in week. Fifteen is in the books, the QB podcast with our prayer. We're kick things off here by helping out the fan bases that are going to be looking for coaches in two weeks. And I thought that the reason this kind of popped in my head this week is I was on the train coming down here New York on Monday. And I saw the video the colts dancing in the locker room. And then you know, I looked at the bears doing it again. And we've all seen the video of saints and how they have a DJ in the locker room. And it's interesting to me because you have to first year head coaches and Frank Reich, and Matt Nagy, and then a thirteen year head coach in Sean Payton, and look the videos are funny and everything else, but beyond just that is sort of. I think it's a really good thing for everyone who's looking for a head coach to sort of keep in mind over the next month in that. That's example of coaches trying to reach their players everyone out. There is looking for the next Sean McVay, right? The guy who can juice their offense and work with their young quarterback and Schanzer freak right? He's a coaching freak. He's like he is the coaching. What Randy moss was the catching a football. What Lawrence Taylor was to rush the passer just a natural in every way. But I think people get too focused on what he's done with Jared Goff. What he's done with the offense and aren't focusing enough on his personality and his ability to galvanize people in this building a leader room. And it's such an important part of the job. And so we're gonna bring Jenny and Connor in now. Like, I I look at these teams that are going to be out in the jets the Browns. I think potentially the Broncos box like these teams that are gonna be out there looking for Ed coaches, and I think every fan base is out there looking for. All right. Like, here's a guy that can work with our quarterback. Here's a guy who can drop a play here. A guy can call a game. And I almost think that that stuff doesn't matter unless you have the right sort of personality, and you have the right sort of guy who can reach the players because if you can't get them if you can't reach them. It doesn't matter what you're trying to teach them because it's not going to get through to them. And I just thought it was interesting watching Nagy like basically like a nightclub in their locker room. And it's been that way for the last few weeks guiding the call club dub, right? And then the colts dancing around in their locker room in the and it's just it's I think that part of being a head coach gets lost. Sometimes I think that's why you know, you hear when coaches, you know, it's time for change. Right. Like Mike McCarthy in Green Bay. It's not like he suddenly forgot what he knows or forgot how to scheme things, and obviously there's been some criticism of the offense being stale. But overall, he hasn't forgotten everything he knows it's just the message isn't getting. But you know, it's interesting I feel like sometimes it's. It's a mix of personalities in certain year. Like every year is so different right because Sean Payton has been there for a while. And they have not always had that atmosphere, right? Or look at the eagles last year you walked into that locker room..

"Aden on sex and the city also cast as the dad in this net. Flicks wrong com. Chand- it's surprising. Not in a good way necessary jarring when you figure it out. I felt very fucked up about I don't know if Aden was in the trailer didn't notice it because Lanta Condor so good. She's great adorable. Not getting enough credit. I don't think so either for how good shoes letters on my most secret possessions. I write them whenever crush so intense. I don't know what else to do large genes like Asian identity was not at the forefront of that film. No nice. It's interesting to me. Because do you think it's weird that it wasn't? We'll a couple of things were interesting to me. One thing was that in the books, they go. They call themselves the song girls away after their moms lesson, which is something that they just kind of like like that was in the not in the movie. Right. But I I don't know. Like, I think this is sort of where you see how important casting is. Because I kind of think and from what I understand even in pre like when Jenny Han, the author of the book was shopping, the book around option, the book around to become a film, you know, like a lot of people wanted to make it a white character. And I think you could have right. I think yes, then she just would have been like a she's all that type character. Yeah. But I don't know. There was something to me that did strike me as like an Asian American feeling that would have projected onto it feeling invisible. Kind of second best. Yeah. Sort of in the background of things. And even though you're like hot and cute like nice shoes. It's sort of like thinking that you are just like getting just like no one's looking at me when her friend calls her out for like being visible that actually being a bitch or whatever she says in the bathroom. Something like that. She's like, you think no one's looking e. But like actually your bitch or something. I don't remember the exact phrasing. But yes, you're right. There is sort of like an Asian American which you can ill, you know, like with a white character. That would have just been like feeling like an outsider. Me. Right. But like, you know, by Cussing and having like an Asian American lead. It sort of adds another layer expectedly built into a stereotype that is you know, it's like part of the world right part of feeling in the world that sort of taps into that. And so that's kind of interesting to me right to think of model minority bullshit, how casting sort of maybe like create scenario inevitably even though the Texas might not lended. Yeah. You know, earlier this fall, we also revisited with two of our faves, Jay hunt and Robert Ackerman to talk about one of our weirdly favorite topics, which is strange considering how much his work tends to drive me crazy, but we talked about all things. Ryan Murphy, the complicated and problematic yet trying to be woke. I videotape this because it was on my TV on New York one. I think they were doing an expose on him. And he said that he wants to bring posed Broadway musical, oh, he knows that. He's not the person to do it because he doesn't want to tell the story, but he wants to make it half as learning. Yeah. We're watching him. Learn in real time of cool on one hand. He's my daddy. That's the not to. I mean once his shit hits net flicks. He's going to be like that is like autour hood. Yeah. I mean, a lot of stuff is on Netflix already. Do you mean like his the original always got he's got like a whole like three or four year deal with Netflix to just do content for them only not on FX anymore. Yeah. I mean, that's exciting. Because he's definitely in cast Judas light and something incredible. I hope he's cast Angela Bassett something in clear, and so it's like as we talked about in the podcast like the Ryan Murphy players all for the most part like very talented actors who oftentimes are overlooked. She's like Quentin Tarantino like how he'll is like known for reviving careers. He's like that. But with people who deserve it..

But one day after those love letters accidentally gets sent out.

And it's just it's a, sleet and fun and just warm-hearted film that yes, I have watched that we'll times and has a star rate starring turns in both Condor and Centenario centenary in particular reminds me of a young Mark Ruffalo in this film, and I would be really happy both of them starting to movie at some point. But so. So this this is actually adapting the first in a series of novels by Jenny Han. The series follows the sort of movement. You can take them of large, gene and second would likely adapt PS, I still love you which kind of spell some travels in the air for our sweet couple a hopefully gets hate the beautiful newest into Neo and his wonderful square jaw. So. He knows I well, it's a very exciting that the sequel is happening in both lawn Condor, and no nail have confirmed that they would love to join in for a second round are like are you worried that this could taint that original film, or are you just like all in? I'm on. I think that it's I'm sure it'll it'll be an on and happily ever after as many wrong comes to.

"On Friday, September seventh, twenty six year old rapper. MAC Miller died from a report drug. Overdose. Miller has been very candid about his diction and mental health challenges over the years. And this news comes just weeks after the release of his new studio album swimming, many celebrities and fans took to social media to pay their respects and yet somehow TMZ and other outlets found a way to drag MAC Miller's ex-girlfriend, Arianna 'Grande into all of this in a disgusting low similar to when she was blamed for Matt totaling his car and getting a DUI shortly after the couple split earlier this year TMZ brought up her name in the mention of his death, saying that his fall back into drug use was probably related to her breaking up with him. Are we all shocked that people started blaming Arianna Grandes. Mmediately now not at all. If a woman is associated with the man, I manage a, you know, had a coming all these things. That's what were your initial thoughts when you heard about? You know the whole Arianna being blamed saying, yeah, I mean, I at least even to back up like I've been really surprised how sad I found the death of MAC Mellick someone I was. I wasn't even really like a huge fan of his and I've since like revisited his music. And I think one of the overwhelming things that I've heard said about him since he's died is like how much progress he made with his music. And he sort of this artists where you look at him and see that. I think Doreen Saint peel said the centerpiece for him about the New Yorker. You feel like he was maybe looking album or two away from like a really excellent piece of art. And so it really feels like something was lost. And I also strangely feel like he's one of the first like real millennial age artists that we've lost where you really feel like they were cut down before. Four, they really got to be great. And I think that's maybe why maybe why it sort of feels so unsettling and also just every I have not seen a bad story about him. Everyone who has interacted with him was friends with him by all accounts. He was a really just like decent good person. So it's been really sad because when we talked about, you know, empathy for people who have you know a drug addiction. This sort of a pit of is that I feel like because this is he is a rapper who by all the stories we've heard had this addiction Ed was very open about it and was publicly struggling with it, but also not using that as an excuse to be abusive. Awful to people. Right, right. He also just like a month before he died, we got that incredible profile on him. Who wrote that? Was it in vulture or something at any rate? It was a very indepth was it was written a month before he died and it came out two days before he. Right? Yes. It was like really. Like not just why he was such a special performer and writer, but like I kind of like the whims of caliber he had and just like sort of an effort essence as a personality. So it's just it's, it's poetically the worst that he just died days. After that, I just felt like that piece really said something about who he was as a person that you wouldn't have gathered from, like, you know, tabloid pieces, TMZ type pieces. And I think that Alba is beautiful. I've been listening to it, divine feminine. Yes. His last one. I two also had sort of forgotten that I really enjoy it max musing. I had forgotten that this album had even come out, you're honest, because it only came out a few weeks ago. Yeah, so it's just been nice, revisiting an and it sad that are Yana has sort of had to deal with losing someone who was obviously important to her. And you know, also having the media sort of turn it against her right now, we're gonna shift gears a bit to talk to New York. Bestselling author, Jenny Han. She's written Shug the summer.

And he brings himself into the movie in a way that that is quite exciting in which I won't spoil for you here. But the film is is just about these guys who are trying to escape a destiny that seems certain grim for them in the and and they're very mixed success in doing so as quite heartbreaking, like I said, beautifully shot. And yeah, it's one of the better documentaries. I've seen this year minding the gap, it's on Hulu, Genevieve. Well, I'm not trying to get through this without just my head turning into the heart is emoji. Like a few days ago, I watched a film and literally all I wanted to do since watching it is rewatch it and I've resented every moment and everything I've had to do that isn't rewatching this Phil and that movie is to all the boys I've loved before, which is a new teen rom com on net flicks and a certain corner of the internet has just become like rapidly obsessed with this movie, and I am part of it. I'd love this movie so much. It's directed by Susan Johnson adapted from a book by Jenny Han by a female screenwriters Alvarez. And this is give you the premise, a teenage girl. Her name is largely and she's playing by Lana Condor. She is sort of an introverted romantic who writes love letters that she never sends and those love letters get out because of course they do and in order to keep one of the crushes who receives a letter from, I guess finding out that she does still love him. She enters into that classic teen rom com. Trope the fake relate. Ship with Peter, Kevin ski, played by Noah Centenario and it precedes pretty much exactly the way you think it does based on the fake relationship trope, but the way it gets there is so perfectly realized in so aware of the tropes it is playing with without being in any way meta or subversive about them. It is one hundred percent embracing these tropes and at the same time, but displaying its knowledge of why these tropes work and fixing all the things about them that make them don't work so much of why this film succeeds has to do with Lana Condor in Noah's into Neo who are just like these incredible young actors is incredible chemistry, and you just like fall in love with them immediately and tugging on this movie, just like, makes me just want to squeal..

Burke was so much intentional obscenity on the internet. It seems that unintentional obscenity is also becoming a problem. Take the case of sports writer, Natalie Weiner who tried to log onto a website only to have the site security protocols reject her name as offensive language. It's part of what led developers referred to as the Scunthorpe problem. So called because when certain is an internet monitoring algorithms are confronted by name like that of the English industrial town Scunthorpe they often flag it as objectionable as it happens to contain within a particular four letter word that many find offensive. Quick hint, the word isn't thought. Researcher, Michael veal puts it some words such as the common abbreviation of the name. Richard are harmless in certain context. But in other cases, parents might not want them used. I'm would be flagged by certain types of program. Consequently, people with names like James butts and Claire aycock say the victims of what's being called algorithm acc- bias computers, inability to distinguish unfortunate linguistic coincidence from deliberate fill.

He was ignored platypus populations plummeted and the Scunthorpe problem was born. All right. There is something. Real pull the Scunthorpe problem, but is it from Helen? The problem of people being inevitably disappointed when they find out what their favorite public radio personalities actually look like, is it from Adam Burke? The problem of people or words with names that could be dirty, not being able to use computers because the computers won't let them or is it from Maeve Higgins. The problem of people immediately celebrating the discovery of any new species by immediately trying to eat it, which of these is the real Scunthorpe problem.

It's true, but I bet his black loosely fitting robe-like skin did cause him some embarrassing kid. I don't know if you watch it, but they're actually unlike most supreme court nomination hearings kind of interesting because the Democrats decided to fight with everything. They had good news for the Republicans. They had very little. The Democrats are not going to stop the nomination, but boy, they sure tried. That's all the Democrats get participation medal and cavenaugh gets a supreme court seat for life. I, I don't understand why they're called confirmation hearings when Cavanaugh won't confirm or deny. Eight. So so it's so it's Cavanaugh. Right. Well, that would depend on the particular. Yeah. It was kind of fun.

"That's what she wants to do. And I thought that was really interesting and it the film is such a continuation of a tradition of teen movies in a way that I also thought was so sweet and appealing. I think the the song that plays under the very end of the movie reminds me a lot of if you leave from the end of pretty in pink there, and Jenny Han did a series of like little boomerangs where he had the cast reenact like the thing from ten things. I hate about you and for breakfast club and some other stuff. And I think it really lives in that tradition and that makes it really, really nice to, oh gosh, it's so good, so good. So good.

"Because after the beginning there is a certain amount of like smart alecky banter at the beginning. But once you get through. Kind of that opening act by the middle. It's pretty clear that he really is into her and he's communicating that he's really into her. And so it's sort of about her being able to be okay with. And I think this is a lot of guys are talking about kind of vulnerability and being able to accept somebody's attention. But a lot of it is really just about her kind of just learning to feel like it's a normal thing for somebody who's really cute to be really into her. One of the other things that I thought was so interesting is that there is a piece in in the New York Times where Jenny Han talked about the fact that a lot of the places that wanted to adapt the book, a lot of the production companies kind of said, well, she doesn't necessarily need to be Asian American. She like she could be because in the book, her mother who has passed away is Korean American, but her father is white. She said that in those conversations, it was a lot of like, well, it'll just be the best person and maybe it'll be an Asian American actress. Maybe it won't. Because like it doesn't really quote unquote matter to the story. She talked about going with like the one production company that understood like, no, I want to cast in Asian American actress, and then there's a, it goes together nicely with an interview with Lana Condor where she talks about seeing the casting notice and being so excited because she felt like I actually have an opportunity to get this part because they're specifically looking for an Asian American actress. I mean, so when I saw that interview, I think I was still coming off the high of crazy rich Asia's. I was thinking about how the Hollywood reporter revealed that Kevin Kwan basically optioned the rights to his book, crazy, rich Asians for a dollar because he wanted to be able to have the story told the way that he wanted it where you know, certain characters remained Asian, and I'm really glad that Jenny Han went with the one production company that agreed to let her have that because I think it it makes such a huge difference because I mean, when you guys were teens, did you did you read books like this? And did you ever feel seen or represented you? There were a couple, but like it was like, I mean, I always wished that they would turn into a movie or something like that, and that never really happened. But like it's, I remember there's one called dancer, I think it might have been by Laurie Hewitt. The main character was this black girl who's valet dancer, and she like foam of with this guy, and she was like trying to college at all this stuff like that. And it was like, I think I read that over and over again between the ages of thirteen and seventeen just because there wasn't really anything. Else like that out there that spoke to like a regular middle class, black girl like who you know was just like falling in love, and you know, following her dreams or whatever. It's hard. Yeah. I unfortunately, I didn't have any experience with anything that made me feel seen. It was always me kind of doing these mental gymnastics to fit myself into other people's narratives that didn't fit me. You know, I had heard the, you know, the reports of, you know, crazy, rich Asians, and then also this movie having to twist and turn in like, take these these side roads to get to the final point. And it was so nice to see someone different like they don't even have to look like me just the fact that they are someone else and not the same person. The same type of person that is always always always put into these lead roles. I couldn't imagine watching this movie with someone else, even the the yogurt moment, like what will we have done without that that was such an important part of the story?.

"Whereas net flicks as always been super guided by the numbers, I think does that story isn't there about how Kevin Spacey Bir I tried to get the US automation of house of cards made by basically every US TV network, and they all turned him down. And then he took it to net flicks and they said, yes, on the basis that Kevin Spacey films on the original house of cards were popular on Netflix. So the two together couldn't go row. Yeah. And I found that on the. Same. Like they've made a whole string of like t named films now with divaesque cost, like stop even as recently as I set it up, things like that. They will done well. So they make more. Yeah. And it's interesting because Jenny Han was saying that when she was optioning her book full. You know to production companies to be made into a film, she ended up going with the only production company of many that would agree to not whitewash the cost really, which is shocking that in, you know, twenty seventeen or sixteen or whatever. The earliest people are still saying we won't make explicitly written like by an Asian woman. We had our will. We will not make your book unless we can recall I, the Asian lead with a with a white woman, and that's that's beyond. And obviously I, I don't fully know the relationship between net flicks and the production company that made the film. We know can't give net flicks the credit for the decision. That was fun. He made by the production company, but it does. I think, make sense to me that she's gone with this particular production company that then gone through net flicks like that's something about that. The feels revealing to me in some way, but it's it's so beautifully done. There's no. Burden on this character to be Representative of any sort of background. It's not that that's not really a key part of the narrative here. She's just someone who happens to be Korean-American and you know, that's that's her heritage and it's not really something that's involved in the narrative apart from the the Laura Jean's mother died when she was young. And so there's an element of like, oh, we cook this food. I remember my mom, that's that's kind of element coming in. And yeah, I just really, it's really nice to see something that can just be totally fawn and positive and unburdened by, you know any sort of way of what representation might mean for audiences. And that just gets to be really the perfect sweet tea in Rome comb. It's just pretty. It really is. I watched it while I was very well, and it definitely improved my day. Oh, PC convinced ski the perfect romantic date. You know, Laura Jean is a really brilliant character because she's both quiet uncharismatic. So. So you both relate to her really strongly in the kind of fantasy sequences and she gets to live that kind of really great flirtatious element in the scenes where she's flirting with peace, convince gay, but doing it in a quiet and understated on the confident way. Not even under confident. It's just quiet confidence and Pete Kaminski. It's just like the classic all American jock who with a nice hall, you know, it's just perfect. He's his. I think he's brings this real puppy ish boyish charm to the role and he's got, you know, these incredibly long eyelashes, and it just works. So if I and he's very like heart on his leave about his motions, like one of my favorite bits of the whole film will when their own this big ski trip and largely in is like off doing face masks with a gay best friend and that talking about like Peter and, oh, well, you know, I think I see like him, but he's oversee just into the fake relationship and friend is like he keeps wanting to hang out with you. He doesn't like he's not going around with any other goals. And he's been really, really clear that he just wants to spend loads of time with you. I really don't think you need to worry about being the one who's actually fallen for this. And he's right that he's not been JD about it like he's just been really open at. It's the mental leaps. They with forced characters to make in Rome comes whether like he got down on one knee and got a ring box out. He obviously hates me and we'll be dead. The classic kind of frustrating acrobatics that you see these characters, dude the heads, but you won't..

"That's really good. I'm gonna steal that for the future. It's it's an interesting thing, but but riches right that they're like there is a political urgency to this, and I think I think you know, you don't get sorry to bother you doing as well as it is doing this year without get out doing as well as it did last year. I think just like the comparisons serve inevitable. And I know a lot of people hate those comparisons there like don't just compare to two movies because they have like a predominantly black cast and like a political message. That's unfair. And I'm like, yeah, well, we get more of those than the comparisons won't be as cogent, but like you know, there's a reason crazy rotations keeps getting compared to joy club is like, because there's been two of them in twenty five years, you know, like it's I would like to be more. I would like this to not be feel like any kind of anomaly, although the fact that it's out at the same time as black clansmen and from what you're scraping about the message of being into capitalist different movie from black Landsman has a different focus in kind of different ideas of how society works. Those two. Next week, other alone could do a lot for that. Absolutely. What is Israel even saying about black Landsman. Oh, he wrote this this open letter kind of to Spike Lee on Twitter about how he took the real story of what happened with Ron stallworth and adapted it to make the movie more pro and kind of overlook. I'm gonna hopefully not too much, but the the role that runs our himself plated infiltrating the blacks unionisation scene in the film and of painting a nicer picture of the police boots Riley thought the history deserved. That sounds like something. Yeah, it's, it's really it's a really interesting way. Look at the movie. Also. He's a persuasive guy. I saw the movie at Sundance and I was mixed on it. And then I went to some weird house party toward the end of the festival. And boots Riley was there, and I just kind of we talked for a while and by the end, the conversation I was like his movies, brilliant. He is really like he's like a really interesting person to talk to and really has such a firm handle on what sorry to bother you. What his movie is is doing and he makes a case for it. And I think that like maybe that's why he's been so active on social media and stuff like that because he really passionately, I think that's a movie with very distinct point of view. Can I talk about one more thing and terms of getting people to theaters versus not this summer? That would be this really unexpected phenomenon that happened this weekend where like I expected craze you? Well, which it did. I. Effected a lot of people to feel like a drive to go see it opening weekend support it, which they did what I did not expect is for Netflix to drop their own rom com. This weekend to all the boys I wanted to talk about Netflix, same pay to all the boys love before which I, I watched. I watched both cruisers, Asians, and to all the boys love before this weekend. I actually watch twelve boys. I've loved before multiple times begin, which I actually know a lot of people did, and I actually see a lot more conversation around that movie happening at least on Twitter, like, you know, all the glossy magazines including her own have great coverage of crazy regimes. And I think to all the boys before which is based on a way novel by Jenny Han and it is getting compared, like I said, like I mentioned before, with other comparisons, it's getting compared because it also has like an Asian lead. In this like wrong, calm situation. They're very different films. This is much more team focused, but it's like it's a great like as someone who didn't drink the set it up Kool-Aid, someone who has not been like that impressed with like Netflix will resurrect the wrong comb. I'm like, okay, but to all the boys, LIPA force really good. It's really good, and I've just seen it dominated conversation on social media more than people talking about Grazer regimes on..
