The Adult Toys From Dodge
"This week's project. Car of the week is actually a van and I'm starting to think I should just call this segment. Mo- par project of the week just because. You know I picked more than just cars for the segment. So be ready for that change. I'm trying to be a little bit more diverse with the Mo parts that I choose for this segment because I do like mo parts from all areas and all types of Mo- parts and I think that good moped projects aren't just cars sometimes their trucks, and since I'm on a van kick this week was a van and Let, me say that I actually set out to find van for this week's project. There was just one issue there aren't very many out there. So let's read the ad and then we'll talk some more about vans and why they can make cool projects. The van featured on this edition of Mo- Project of the week was posted on the Mo- part hundred facebook page on Sunday September sixth at nine. AM HERE IS THE AD. Van Three Thousand Nine, hundred, ninety, five, dollars, nineteen seventy five, dodge tradesman shorty three Eighteen v eight auto runs drives and stops pretty well for a forty five year old van. If you've been looking for one of these, this is one to consider not showroom ready. But great start to a street machine serious inquiries only please three, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five dollars, or best offer title status is clean. So. This ban is a short wheelbase van, which for these is one hundred, nine inches compared to the longer versions that one, hundred, twenty, seven inches the van that I wanna buy from Stacey is a hundred, twenty, seven inches for wheelbase. So it's longer than my dad's was since my dad's was a like this van the one in this ad is to tone it has a light blue base with a thick. Dark blue striped mid body in a dark blue roof. It has a windshield visor which is very buggy vanish and it has my favorite bubble windows of all time. The PENTASTAR portholes they are super rare and I'd love to hunt down a set for my future van project. But if stacy's van ends up being mind, then I'll just settle for the round portholes unless I can find. Those awesome. Pentastar. Wants this van. Also has a grant wood grain steering wheel, which adds to that nostalgic feeling along with that pop up Sunroof, and it looks like at one point back was done up like seventies custom but right now it's pretty bare, which is great. Because most of the time when you find these vans, the cargo area usually needs to be redone. These old buggy vans had all shag carpet and cabinets put in Old Saints and. Things like that. So chances are if you find one of these, it'll probably need new carpet and things like that. This one actually has a plywood floor and looking around it actually looks like the van was originally read. The good news is that it will be easy to strip the cargo area and get creative to create your own space. I. Like the idea of a modern version of a classic book Van Something. Creative enough that you can go to shows and show it off. But you can also go camping, and if you're the nomad life, you can hit the road and live that van life but it would also be cool to get this thing capable of hauling a race car that way you have a place to store your tools, parts, extra tires, and have a place to stay at the track instead of. A ten I really liked that idea for me I like all those possibilities but the possibility of having a mobile podcast studio when I go to events would be really cool and if I bring merch with me, it would make a great display for the Merch to this thing has a three eighteen. It's running and driving and hey, it stops too. So that's always nice I like projects that you can. Drive home and this thing is you know that type of a project, it even has some pin striping on the hood, which is cool because it's kind of like a throwback. It does need some new wheels and tires and some fifteen by ten on fats in the back and some fifteen by eight in the front would give this thing that groovy raked stance that was so popular with these vans back. In the day I, think that this van is also in desperate need of a front lip spoiler and the fender flares, which you can surprisingly still find if you look hard enough online but all in all, I'd say if you were interested in getting a Boogie van for a project for less than four grant, I think this one is a great candidate I actually did reach out to the seller just to. Feel the water and see what the temperature was like and it sounds like he's pretty firm with not much wiggle room. But he said that thirty five, hundred to the right person would take it home. WanNa know what I offered him. But that's a whole nother story since these vans are hard to find think he's in the ballpark the side doors do have a little damage and there's definitely some work probably needs to be done but overall, it appears to be pretty solid. So if you're looking to get back into fanning and relive your youth or even if you're a rookie banner, this would make a fun project keep on Truckin my friends that was Mo- part project of the week Nomo par left behind. Since we're on the topic of vans. This week's high-performance part belongs to a custom Shorty Dodge van and the two thousand, fifteen movie American ultra and because I suck at explaining movies, I finally come to the realization that from now on I think I'm just GonNa read the Synopsis Straight from Rotten Tomatoes. So here is the synopsis for American Ultra. Tomatoes. American ultra is a fast paced action comedy about Mike Played by Jesse Eisenberg, a seemingly hapless and unmotivated donor who's small town life with his live in girlfriend phoebe played by Kristen Stewart is suddenly turned upside down unbeknownst to him. Mike is actually a highly trained lethal sleeper agent in the blink of an eye as a secret past comes back to haunt him. Mike is Thrust into the middle of deadly government operation and is forced to summon his. Interaction hero in order to survive. Now, where does this sweet Boogie van come in well about seventeen minutes and thirty seconds into the movie Eisenberg's character Mike Meets up with his drug dealer rose played by John Leguizamo to buy illegal fireworks. The show he wants to put on for when he proposes to phoebe Rachel Rolls Up to the meeting spot in one thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, four to nineteen, seventy, six, dodge short van with a wild paint scheme which. To me looks like a vinyl rap, but
Kelly Reichardt First Cow
"Welcome to film spotting back in early March one of the most anticipated films of the year for US Josh Kelley, records first cow finally came to theaters, and then less than two weeks after its release the COVID nineteen pandemic force, the nation's movie theaters to close along with just about everything else meeting that most people never got a chance to see it. It it wasn't quite the last movie I saw pre pandemic. The penultimate I think I fit in birds of prey, just after I scout, that sounds right and man, my so grateful we were able to get first cow, because to have to sit for a few more months without seeing it as many people had, that would have been tortuous. Yeah, the pandemic. Records plans to come to Chicago when we were scheduled to sit down with her for an interview fast forward now to July first cow is now finally available to rent on demand, and we got a chance to talk to Kelly Reicher by phone later in the show will revisit our first cow review from back in March and hopefully more of you have had a chance to catch up with it now that it is available to rent I though it is our conversation with Kelly Reichardt in addition to first cow. Films include 2016 certain women that starred Kristen Stewart Laura, dern and her frequent collaborator Michelle Williams before that she offered us night moves that was about a trio of radical environmentalists, one of those played by Jesse Eisenberg and she gave us of course meek's cutoff. Which I think is still her masterpiece in Oregon trail set. Film that yeah, a lot of people consider among the very best of the last decade Wendy and Lucy was the film before that one. This was a doomed road trip movie again with Williams, and then the first film that I saw of Hers Atom I think you as well two thousand six's old joy, that one like I call centers on male friendship records debut film river of grass that came out back in nineteen, ninety four for first cow reichert return to the Pioneer Era Pacific northwest setting of Meek's cutoff. Cutoff for a tale of unlikely friendship capitalism, and yes, oil leaks in the movie, a cook from the east to play by John McEnroe joins a group of for trappers Oregon there. He meets Orion lease King Liu a Chinese immigrant, the to become friends and set out on a risky business venture together. Also, there is a cow. It's the first cow in the area. Josh indeed floating down the river in one of the movies more memorable images I'd say absolutely. Let's get to that conversation with Kelly Reicher now. Call me cookie. Mother died when I was born, and then my father died. I never stopped moving. It's a good thing stopped at the puzzle. No way for women to stop. have account cow in the. same place for cows. That's no place for white men. He's A. Since virginity here. Kelly thanks so much for coming back on spotting. It's great to have you nice to be here in virtually exactly so josh and I have both spoken very very favorably of the film, actually our favorite film of the year so far between us, and we both talked about it as almost a parable, a movie that in a story that seemingly very simple, the kind that maybe could even be passed down orally, and without any heavy-handedness or easy moralizing impart. Truths are we on the right path? Do you see I cal that way? I'm. A visual person so. Making it is a audible story I. How came from Jonathan Raymond's novel? The half life. I I'd have to think about it. I haven't thought about it in those terms of course moist thinking about it in images. Yes, so When you say. It's your favorite film. I don't know why you have to qualify it and say so far to stop watching other things. But seems fair. That seems fair. I'm sure you're like A. I think all those qualities topping out exist? I just yeah. I haven't thought about it. In terms that of course I I think maybe a better way to phrase that would have been if if you think about it and I know that this sounds almost like it's simplifying, but whether or not you think about this project, or any other is in terms of imparting kind of lesson, or is there. Is there some? Is there something you were trying to teach to the audience? No No. No I don't think so. I mean I. Know I would not want to think in those terms I mean I hope it has. Layers to it that there's things to think about and Questions to ask as far as. I mean ultimately I think like to focus on the friendship and kept blake quote in the beginning. That's in John's. Novel to remind myself that ultimately are making a film about friendship, and there are these teams of capitalism and You know running through out the new the but It has to be considered like just figuring out how to do seem sort of. Where the power lies in a scene, so it's not like I'm not thinking about those things, but I'm Only, in terms of how they relate to cooking, King Lou not in terms of. Some world message or cheek I World should not be being taught from me. That's for sure.

"War it is the focus of a brand new movie full resistance starring Jesse Eisenberg available to you right now at home on video on demand as a group email arming themselves to find guns of course not this sounds great name welcome to the resistance Houston journal says resistance is it entertaining and informative way to pass the time yeah Eisenberg stars as Marcel Marceau and I had no idea about this part of his background about what he did for the French resistance it's an amazing true story and it's told remarkably well he was a young man who want to be a performer his dad didn't approve but none of that mattered when he learned about these Jewish children who were orphaned by the rising **** threat he gets involved with their fate he tries to cheer them up it gets really in tangled in this French resistance involves Marcel Marceau was no fighter he knew at some point he had to fight back and the story tracks that evolution Eisenberg is wonderful here you know I don't think of them in this kind of a role I feel like Hollywood often stereotypes him as sort of nebbish she and not her type at all but I think maybe in a way that plays into this character and the way he matures as time marches on there are a few narrative bumps along the way and some of the dialogue I thought was a little hokey but overall this is a very powerful story well told and I really enjoy the cinematography well just the way the camera can it captures what was going on clearly this is not a major budget movie it's a smaller film but it doesn't look that way looks beautiful times of haunting I really recommend it let's talk about a couple of films that gave it their best at the movies but because of corona virus are quickly being shifted to home video there's the Ben Affleck movie the way back he plays a basketball coach who has an interesting past and that's just one example of films that are quickly coming to your home yeah we've already seen the hunt hit home theaters if you want to pay twenty or so dollars for the invisible man as well but these are more recent titles that you know the way back we talked about a little while ago Ben Affleck is excellent in this movie it definitely disappointed at the box office before the coronavirus head end up maybe it's a better fit to go straight to home viewing possibly that's how movies could change in the months to come that maybe titles like this we'll skip the theaters entirely we'll have to wait and see but right now it's a very solid choice also I still believe is a romance it's got some faith based elements in H. for sure but I think even secular audiences will appreciate elements of the story here pacer to tail and I don't think you can go wrong with the phone finally a question that I know you cannot fully answer at this stage but as long as these movies are pretty much going straight to people's homes are we looking at the real possibility of theaters going away that's been the conversation there's a lot of doomsday predictions about theatrical experience I don't think so to me at the end of the day why do we go to the theater three months ago two months ago for escapism to see a movie in a crowded theater for a night out for our first date for a date after being married for twenty years all those reasons will still apply once things settle down once we get a hand on this virus and once the new normal returns so I think it may change some of the thinking at studios where the maybe they think is this a better theatrical release or is it may be better suited for a paper view situation I think that could change but I think that's more of a subtle difference I'm still hopeful that the theatrical experience will come roaring back my fingers are crossed but I think it's gonna happen in total with only one in total dot com unstable Dimitri you're listening to one of three point five FM at WTOP dot com.

"I'm not any longer that proud of but I think there was a time when I was was kind of like a badge of honor when you were talking about his O._C._D.. When he's talking about is his anxiety yes and you explain that I also have that in? You're rubbing your hands together and you said he's probably cringing. I was cringing. Oh what am I talking about. I so you're listening to it. Oh yeah because there's a visual component to that makes it worse when I see people rubbing their hands together I it's the combination of the sound in the visual that is really has the most impact but just the sound is from. I don't know I must've had stopped doing i. I'm guessing I had some sort of traumatic traumatic experience. I don't remember us to while someone is rubbing their hands together.

That's what I thought I think so I think it was just the lower expectations and less pressure pressure which makes sense to me but that also goes along with what he said about worrying less the older gets because he's closer to being dead. You know so so that's that's the same type of brain that things I have to you know accomplish lot and I put a lot of pressure on myself to do a certain thing and the older I get the less pressure I feel because there's not as much time left so it seems like he's a he's. He's gotta be hyper anxious about things and he puts a certain. I I would love to explore you know you mentioned like we talked about career stuff and I really wish we had more time and this is on me to. I wish I'd gotten into some of his personal just the way he sees the world outside of an acting career and I don't know how he sleeps at night.

James mcevoy played the the the lead and I was his friend and I would say <hes> well here we go again or modern colloquialisms that I knew were incorrect and I would keep my head. You say something like that in a scene you don't get out of the scene but it's you're aware of it and it was the dynamic that was created in the script also like modern dynamic where like no okay yeah.

Plus show is what I remember thinking like a great show but if you came like the pre yeah and and <hes> I loved it and I think I I'm okay on stage. Usually I'm okay especially from playing a character that has some kind of pent-up rare something I can experience but I'm not okay during the days I don't know how are you similar yeah and when you're at Williamstown. Do you have a similar feeling or is it feel much more laid back there because it's like it's easier. They're supposed certainly now for for me. Because I'm more calm I've done several years there but it doesn't have the same dynamic as New York audience coming to judge you. That's the other thing I've only done off Broadway and and <hes> <hes> so the plays like <hes> half the audience are people like in the arts who like you know car coming from their own place and you get a bit of that. You know the kind of judgment what do you got got kind of as opposed to like <hes> what I imagined to be a Broadway audience which is more tourism and happy to see their see you and pay your money and you know you know and and let's wait a moment with the off Broadway at the vineyard. <hes> play that I just did where I was so relieved once the reviews had come out and I think I didn't read them but I I heard it.

Critics have gone and they said they said Yep but now now people go in expecting something yes or they wanna hate it to diverge from the thing they read Yeah Zach. I don't mean to describe all audience members cynical but I mean like I did. I do have a sense <hes> yeah. I do have a sense like working off Broadway especially in the stuff I do which is like you're in nonprofit theater. You know that the people and also I'm being judged as probably you are as like you know. You're an actor who's known so like there's a kind of you know. This is like you know it's an exclusive club theater and so if you want enter our club you know you kind of have to ensure there's a little bit of heightened thing so <hes> yeah and <hes> in terms of like anxiety and acting. I guess I just feel a little bit more like <hes>. I don't know I mean I. I've I would be much more hesitant to like <hes> yeah. I guess go to a bar and introduce myself to somebody to be anything but I think I feel that way. Absolutely you said something about. I think it was <hes>. Now you see me.

Hey guys Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another edition of Happy said confused. Yes the guest today returning champion Mr Jesse Eisenberg Izenberg. It's been a while since Jesse has been on the PODCAST. He was one of the early guests happy second fused way back when five years ago thrilled had Jesse back as I said to him he's one of the few people on the planet that probably speaks faster than I do so adjust your settings accordingly lots of content in a relatively short amount of time coming at you but Jesse is <hes>. There's no one likes US Berg. I really love talking to him. He he is an intellectual he is funny and smart and interesting and kind of in his own bizarre wonderful world like he's not he's not plugged into pop. Culture doesn't watch movies movies or T._v.. I mean he's he just makes his great art. He writes his plays does pieces for the New Yorker and acts in a wide variety of interesting films and as I said they kind of run the gamut from <hes> big blockbusters like like Zombie Landon like Batman v Superman and he's you know he's never shy about dipping his toe in that arena he's going to be in the new Zombie Land Film. That's coming out later this year <hes> but he's also well well known for starring in great smaller independent films from way back when when he when he kind of came to the fore and Roger Dodger and the squid and the whale <hes> all the way up to his new film which is called the art of self defense and I really enjoyed this one. This is a a very funny movie a very quirky odd movie from writer Director Riley Stearns kind of confronts <hes> our notions of masculinity toxic masculinity <hes> Jesse plays kind of a put upon gentlemen whose mode and seeks to better himself I guess or or find some purpose by taking a martial arts class <hes> he's led by Alice Hundred Novoa. Who is maybe not the best teacher in the world? <hes> take some very unexpected twists and turns earns. The dialogue is very specific very arched very funny. <hes> and I definitely recommend it. It's out this Friday. Seek it out the art of self defense <hes> we cover a lot in this conversation. We talk about all different kinds of films in his career. We talk about <hes>. I should say you know we we talk a bit. Of course you know you know I feel obligated to bring up something like lex Luther and Batman v Superman something that we're all so curious about it such kind of odd part of his career and philosophy he and I kind of have a little fun with him. I say ingest that you know something to the effect of the you're probably not playing this character again. <HES> WE'RE NOT GONNA see Justice League part two. I know the fans are very sensitive and very like I don't. I don't know I don't know how people bowl think that I'm like shitting on films and that's not my intention at all. I just want to be clear about that <hes> but as somebody that follows the industry and follows the you know the way these things work. I don't think we're seeing Jesse Eisenberg with all due respect to play lex luther again or we're seeing a Justice League partout so <hes> before you guys come at me just no that's that's where I was coming up just with the kind of a very cognizant awareness of where the EU films are right now. <hes> what what else did mention <hes> yeah this is. This is a fun conversation kind of <hes> you know rambles in the best possible way. Take takes off on different tangents. I think you guys are gonNA enjoy it. I certainly did <hes>. There's also an amazing amazing story of <hes> <hes> Jesse's own tussle with Bob Weinstein on a infamously <hes> cursed project ironically called cursed it was a West Craven where Wolf movie that like got just destroyed in terms of production deduction and would reshad etc anyway..

And it's. Me step up that he has a bigger budget. He has you know, he is he has I want I wanna say better actors, but he has bigger name actors who appear in this imaging Putin Jesse Eisenberg, and I feel like faults was just custody enough from taking the money and time and he needed to make something more ambitious, and I left us going.
