Apple acquires the full Fraggle Rock collection in first major licensing play

"And here's another interesting apple acquisition if you will. Apparently apple is involved in a reboot of the once popular kids TV Staple Frugal Rock. That's been under development at apple for a while now to be released on Apple. Tv plus it's involving a full partnership with the Jim Henson Company and it makes sense as Netflix's and Disney plus have shown having kids programming is key to getting families to lock into your streaming service. But what is new and potentially interesting because it suggests a strategy shift on. Apple's part is the further news. That apple has also quietly acquired frugal rocks back catalogue. All Ninety six original episodes of the TV show aired between Nineteen Eighty. Three and nineteen eighty. Seven have been quietly made available to stream on Apple. Tv plus so is apple shifting its original strategy of creating original content into a mix strategy of also licensing existing Ip. If so might that be a tall order because I mean since everyone in their mother is investing in streaming plays right now. Why would anyone be willing to part with valuable? Ip that they could leverage to make their own efforts viable quoting the Great Julia Alexander in the verge as Joseph adhaline reported in vulture this week with big studios like Disney Warner media and NBC UNIVERSAL. Quote looking to keep their best and brightest titles for their own streaming platforms. There simply aren't enough great titles around to justify making a play for a traditional library of licensed content instead it makes more sense for apple to look at acquiring full libraries for shows wants to reboot keeping everything in one place makes for a better consumer experience quote so were apple to end up doing a deal for the rights to the James Bond Franchise something which has been buzzed about. Since at least two thousand seventeen the company would also likely try to get the back library of bond films so it could market itself as the home for all things 007 at Elaine wrote apple like all streaming players. Right now is making licensing bets where they make sense. Apple isn't about to try to use NETFLIX's licensing strategy which helped the general entertainment platform catapult into a behemoth for its own gain as apple figures out which properties make the most sense to either resurrects remake or reboot building out. Full collections is also a smart play. Apple isn't calling this a strategy shift but it is one apple. Tv plus launched without any license content and CEO. Tim Cook reiterated at a shareholders meeting in February that Apple. Tv plus wasn't about hosting older series or films specifically saying that's not what Apple TV pluses about cook. Restated that Apple. Tv plus is about original programming and quote. It doesn't feel right for apple to just go out and take a rerun. Cook said now. The caveat seems to be if that original program is based on an older series or movie. It's likely that collection will wind up on Apple.

"That staff very sad if you're ever in the mood for a good cry watch the Jim Henson Memorial Big Bird sings. It's not easy being green. Yeah tough stuff. People his children his legacy lives on through In nineteen ninety-three Jane. His wife Foreign founded the Jim Henson legacy to preserve his contributions germ with public and like. I said he donated five hundred puppets to the center puppetry arts and There is also the gym Henson Memorial Mapa Museum and traveling exhibits and his sons and daughters help Renaissance Foundation and some of them are paying themselves in run. The company the company has changed hands. A Lot I have sort of the boring history. When he was still alive he was going to sell it to Disney for one hundred and fifty million because apparently he believed in Disney's commitment to characters so he thought that would be a good place for the muppets to live. Yeah you bought it but he did not get that deal Finished but it turns out one hundred fifty million with chump change because in two thousand and his children sold the entire company including the sesame street characters to a German media company for six hundred eighty million while and then I believe that company fell on hard times and they bought it back in two thousand and three eighty four million net crazy. Wow the Hinson. Children are smart and inbetween all that there are various exchanges of percentages of steaks with other companies and rights of certain characters. A little dull to go over all of that but needless to say they made up pretty well and eventually Disney now does they do own all the muppets studio. They own the muppets. Apparently the Henson Company sold the rights to the sesame street characters sesame street which is right cool. Yes and the Jim. Henson's creature shop still builds the sesame street puppets muppets. Yes if they sold the rights of the muppets and bear in the Big Blue House characters. Which I'm not familiar with that one. Nor am I but Disney wanted to? I guess that's sort of the player to be named later. That's included in the in the baseball trade. An proud of the Hinson kids. Yeah a great and I hope we get tweeted about this one from them. They seem seem pretty. Great Brian in Cheryl and the gang seem like they're doing right by the DAD and there's other siblings two and I think they're all involved. Yeah super involved and sadly Jane passed away. I think in two thousand thirteen. Yeah at the age of seventy eight. I would have loved to have seen what kind of work he did later in his life. Oh yeah the fact that he died in one thousand nine hundred still had like apple. Tv shows going. I mean fifty years old. He's left him. If you want to know more about Jim Henson goes into our muppets episode. And while you're looking that up you can also search Jim Hansen on the search BAR HOUSE DOT com. Bring up this great article and since I said search bar. It's time for a listener mail. This is I'M GONNA call this soft more smart. Sophomore guys may name is Matt and I'm a Sophomore Sophomore Manure Fan in the show and I listened while I do everything just wanted to say the dark ages were only dark in Europe. The life expectancy in the dark ages is actually the longer than before but mostly because there were smaller wars but things were certainly brighter and the Islamic world. In fact people in the Middle East were really enlightened during this time within about one hundred years they conquered a lot of new land including Spain also. The Arabic language grew to be the language philosophy medicine and poetry and Baghdad became the World Centre scholarship. They translated almost all of the famous. Greek philosophers work into Arabic Muslim. Muslims developed Algebra to simplify inheritance laws and they made important strides in trigonometry to help people find a way to Mecca architecture. Grew to The Great Mosque in Spain only took roughly a year. While medieval cathedrals took hundreds of years to build so the Dark Ages. Weren't that dark in. The enlightenment came earlier than most think and that is for Matt. Thanks Matt enlightening stuff. My friend yeah are numerals or Arabic. Yeah it's true we should. We should hit on some more Middle Eastern topics. Let's do it in the meantime. If you want to suggest some Middle Eastern topics for us you can tweet them to us at podcast.

"Okay we're back and we're still in the eighties. That's right and you were talking about other TV As we said the man loved television in filmmaking and so he got away from the muppets puppets every now and then Collaborated with Raymond. Scott who was an electronic pioneer actually on shorts called ripples in wheels that go You did that for the Montreal. Expo in sixty seven right and I know we're jumping around in time but we're just trying to paint the full picture here not going necessarily in order and then he also did. This cool thing called the floating face. Which was a sketch on the tonight? Show the Mike Douglas. Show in the sixties Which I did you see any of that a little bit. There's a little weird It was like two eyes and a mouth and there were like these invisible wires and background images and it was it was definitely a little more on that. Surreal tip the Hinson surreal tip. Yeah not kid oriented necessarily but he got to the movies with the muppet movie which is a big hit. It still holds up man. It's still so great. If you WANNA know more about that moving into some of the cool facts from it go again. Listen to the muppet episode. Yeah as a matter of fact pause. This goes into the muppet episode. And then come back to this one. Yeah probably enhance your experience. Agreed or listen to both at the same time But he followed the muppet an one thousand nine hundred two. He made the dark crystal. Yeah which was Puppets and it was based on Some drawings by fantasy artists Brian froude and there were no humans it was all puppets and I don't think it holds up as well but it still looks pretty good. Well Yeah I think it actually is probably better receive now than it was originally. Yeah I think critics appreciated it but it didn't do so well at the box office but now it's become a cult classic for sure. Yeah and one of the reasons why it didn't do that well at the box office because audiences didn't quite know what to make of it they heard Frank Oz co-directed it right Jim Henson puppets and they think they win. Expecting the muppet movie. This is nine hundred. Eighty two and the they got the dark crystal instead with really dark. The lot of the theme is good versus evil. And it's the evil in it is really really evil and the stuff that happens to some of the puppets is including really cute. Puppets yeah is really horrifying and I read this awesome quote by frank and basically he says like Jim thought it was okay to scare kids. As matter of fact he thought it wasn't healthy for kids to never be scared. He purposely was trying to scare kids. And he he. He wanted to take the tradition back to Grimm fairy tales which are very very dark affects point. That's what he was going forward the dark crystal. Yeah I think it was ahead of. Its time for sure if you look at some of these movies today. I think that dark crystal was a precursor. A lot of those Then he went onto make the movie the labyrinth with Bowie Right. Yeah David Bowie and very cruise young Jennifer Connelly now. That was legend okay. Good movie But this was written by Terry Jones of Monty Python fame and then written a bunch by a bunch of other people including executive producer. George Lucas Labyrinth was okay. Not Bad again. Not a huge hit For Hinson though as far as movies go but he was still out there. Exploring these cool fantastical worlds fantasy worlds and he still had a lot of credit even in the late eighties. If you think about his heyday was the late seventies early eighties with the muppet. Show the muppet movie s and then after that. It was like yeah. I'll try this with Jim. Henson I'll try this with Jim Henson. And even even still he had like a he was on a pretty great streak and at the end of the ADC had to TV shows on the Jim. Henson hour and storytelling storyteller. Yeah the Jim Henson Hour. He's always pushing the boundaries. A storyteller looking back now are. I'm sorry Jim Hinson. Our looking back was really different from what you were getting time because it was. It was all over the map. Certain shows that were like you know. Four or five sketches in one and then. Three of the episodes were full on our little mini movies. Really from yeah from beginning Louis. Yeah that's a good point actually. One of the little mini movies was called dog city which was great. It was narrated by Ralph and it was. I remember watching this. It was like a a film nor gangster thing you puppet dogs. Yeah and the main character issue was The Guy who did elmo Kevin Clash did The character of ACU and that was fantastic. I think dogs city went on to be a TV show. And its own right to okay for a little while but it was really good. I mean it's total like gangster crime film noir. But it's you know Ralph the Dog Right Gang I love. It's really cool the storyteller I hadn't seen before I was. I guess aware of but I don't know why wasn't watching it because it would have been like right there for me. Yeah I would have been twelve in nineteen eighty eight but I watched today and it was really good. It's like human puppet interaction. Yeah which is. It's just seamless like there's one of the things from studying this that I've realized that we take for granted and expect our puppet human interactions to be so seemless that we don't even realize they were looking at puppets and the reason why we expect that is because of Jim Henson and the people he worked within an inspired to work so hard at creating that illusion we had the illusion that these are living breathing. Things he would go. I remember Kermit as guests on talk shows Right Jim. Henson he would go out. I mean he did those appearances as well but kermit the frog would be a guest tonight show Johnny Carson or host or guest tonight. Show Larry King. Yeah and it was all a part of this goal of making these real people. Write a real living things not people. Yeah apparently somebody who is working with the Jim. Henson was the director of the muppet show would be giving Jim Notes on Kermit and Jim would just respond like let Kermit respond. That was pre end. The director said eventually you're sitting that you turned address. Kermit like he just force you and interacting with the public even I during a note session. Yeah and probably without feeling silly or stupid or anything you know probably seem like a totally normal thing to do eventually forced you to do He also pioneered the Hinson Performance Control System and Wanted Academy award for that and that was a remote control system that Helped puppeteers out. So he he was always pushing technical Visual I'm stylistic thematic boundaries. As far as he could and they didn't always work. You know the movies weren't aside from the muppet movie. They weren't the biggest hits the TV show a couple of you know. Neither one of those lasted very long. But I think he was just intent on doing something different. Yeah he and he did and he died. In Ninety of Daf infection organ failure brought on by a staph infection. Did you know that yet? I think pneumonia had something to do with it too. Didn't it not that I saw? I saw organ failure caused by Group. A strep infection. I'm sorry.

"Had one week's installment called the cube which was a guy just stuck in a white room but other people could come in and out of the room but he could not right. Yes okay and he starts to go kind of crazy and it has the look and feel of a color. Tv Ad like all lots of over acting in like Carol Burnett s characters and stuff like that but yeah the the sentiment behind it and like the everything behind is really neat. It really gives you a good An eye opening example of like what Jim Henson was capable of but also like what he was into. Because you know when you think of him you think of muppets and Sesame Street in particular sure and these are weird. Abstract art films. Not Unlike. You know you've watched like a Jim Morrison art film from film school and it's kind of the same style you know that was what was going on back then and he actually got nominated for an academy award for timepiece. Jim Henson had Jim Morrison beat by a mile as far as experimental films went. Yeah I'll agree with you there so like I said. He wasn't quite convinced it puppetry was his future because he was a filmmaker in he was like puppets or still. Can Kid stuff right but Post College? He did the old tour of Europe and in Europe. Puppeteers a whole different business. It was a lot more serious in a lot more. I guess it was treated as art. Yeah exactly and he said you know what I am going to give this. A shot came back to the. Us married Jane and even though he and Jane separated they never divorced Oh really I thought they did now. They never fulfilled the divorce. They stayed separated. Okay and Then he started making TV commercials and formed his own company in nineteen sixty three with. I don't know if he formed it with. Frank is but he hired. Frank is Jerry Joel Who ended up being obviously legendary puppeteers and lifelong collaborators of his. Yeah Yeah but he started out making a basically a puppet based commercial AD agency in New York in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. Yeah and they weren't making funny commercials back then. So he was really pretty revolutionary right and they did pretty well for themselves in one of the smartest moves he made early on was all of his contract said that he retained the rights to any of the creations. He made for these companies. Yeah so he was creating. Ah some of the things that would later become famous. Muppet's like the cookie monster was originally made for a chip maker and it was this puppet that couldn't get enough of these chips. Yeah he was the wheel stealer and he's cheese wheels. Yeah okay that's what it was. And he ended up being the cookie monster and the reason he ended up being the cookie. Monster's because Jim Henson retain the right so that that was. He's very savvy business guy. Yeah and he was. He was using somebody else's dime these these advertisers like budgets to kind of hash out and form and make his muppets. Yeah Roth. The dog started out on Purina commercials and was later sidekick on the Jimmy Dean show in nineteen sixty three. I remember that from the muppets episode. Golf was the first big muppet is. He's such like a bit character now. Yeah that it's just mind boggling. To think he was the one that started it all in before kermit big bird it was. Ralph Kinda stole the show I think. Yeah we'll talk a little more about kermit and more. He came from right after this tax season can be a real pain in my right but it's all worth it when you open the mailbox and see that sweet sweet envelope.

Artists are always stopping by to hang out and share their lives and music too so wake up with a bunch of my friends. I Ninety eight point seven. W M Z Q in Washington DC or wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. All right so it's one sixty nine and a very very big thing happens to Jim Henson. He was invited to be on the pilot of a show created by the children's television workshop. Called Sesame Street and he did not create it. People think he did but he did make his mark by creating Most of the iconic characters. And if you're a fan of the old sesame street's back then all not all but many of those little short films the little claymation ones or the live actions. He directed those as well. Yeah which is pretty cool. I never knew that. I think I knew that did you. Yeah he's the are recipe. Yeah he was there. Russ Vic Vic is ours tried so chuck the whole thing. That changed everything for him with Sesame Street. Yeah he's not a. He's he wasn't creative. Sesame street is hired him on and actually won them over because remember one of the things that Jim Henson always struggled with his whole career was he wanted to explore places that puppets had never really gone to write in themes that they hadn't gone through at least not in the modern age but he was fighting against them. Not being taken seriously yes. It wasn't like he was anti puppet by any means he was or anti kids Because one of the big reasons he signed on with children's television workshop was their goal to educate kids. Right meant a lot to him. But like you said I think to merge those worlds successfully was a big part of his goal right and struggle for a little while Russ Vic by the way made the little interstitial things for the stuff you should know television. Yeah animation which is why referencing. Yeah so the Children's television workshop which is now called the sesame workshop from what I understand. They want him over big time he makes all of these characters from like big bird and Kermit came before sesame street and he started out. I think we talked about this in the episode to he started out looking really weird lizard not cool at all like really. Kinda freaky which is something that I now that I know a little more about Jim Henson. I think maybe he might have even been going for right. But one of the things that sesame street allowed him to do was to really kind of explore something that he'd long been obsessed with which was television and where it converged with puppets which was all new territory and Jim Henson. Was that the bleeding of it. Tell you because if you think about it when you go to a puppet show live you know you're you're looking at what's essentially a mechanism for hiding the human and there's just a little area that the public can move around in will tiny thick stage? Yeah so Jim. Henson's stepped back and said okay. The television is that little tiny area that the public can stay can move around in but it also opens up the whole world for puppet because you're using camera angles and there's editing and it's not in person. Yeah just frame out the people so and again. We talked about this in the muppet episode. He created something called platforming up. Yeah to where the puppeteers no longer had to crouch down in to to maneuver the puppets. Yeah because he's a tall guy. Yeah Tall and Lanky man. He was skinny. Oh those running shots and timepiece exactly he was in it they were hysteric and he weighs about seventy pounds stig lanky legs so yeah. The performance could stand up which was a huge weight off. Yeah but at the same time because you're working with cameras and stuff like that. And they have the whole universe of move around in and Jim. Henson wanted him to move around as much as possible. It also put them in some weird positions. Yes well some people might think it's like Kinda ruining the thing but I think it's really neat if you just look on Google images. Muppets muppet show behind the scenes pictures. And it'll show the the stage sets you know like six feet off the ground and all the people standing beneath. I think it's awesome to look at but some people don't like you know they want to keep that illusion alive right so depending on what kind of person you are either. Seek that out or don't and we gave that warning in the muppets episode. Did we. Yeah I think the really cool pictures. I agree because a lot of times they're looking at. They're looking at video monitors standing. There contorted using both hands. Right like the way puppeteers worked together to me is just a miracle. Because they're acting as the puppets but they're moving still moving among one another as humans right underneath which can be really complicated. We in fact we know some really really talented puppeteers here in Atlanta. Gather the Center for puppetry. Arts is yeah. I think the nation's largest puppet puppeteer organization and that is where we had our TV show debut party premier party like it was a really cool experience imitator and the Ganger right there on display. I think the Hinson and kermit cut the ribbon for the grand opening Back when it opened and Ended up donating like five hundred puppets and muppets right to the Center for puppetry arts. If you ever visit Atlanta people always email us and say what should we do highly recommend going and checking out the center.

"Hey welcome to the podcast. I'm just Clark with Charles W, Chuck Bryant. Howdy in Jerry the last time this year. Yes just informed, and she's all smiles, she is. Not Very nice to. How'd you like that presentation earlier? The sensitivity training those great. Yes people because we work for corporation, we have things like sensitivity, training, and in those trainings you get shown. Video examples of various forms of harassment. and. They are the best most fun things to watch ever. They're pretty overt. Could Watch those all day long. I was wondering how much production company made from the you know they did. What like five little vignettes? They I'm sure they pay the actors like literal peanuts. If they were bad actors, they're like. The peanut bucket over there. Can yourself yeah the one that really got me was the actually? They were all really funny. The one with the old guy in the in the factory loading boxes like a shipping warehouse. And, they were giving the old man hard time about everything because he was old. Yeah, because he's old and you know they were gonNA hard time seed. He's out of work for a while. And they cover form the old man, and he had the back brace on Jim said, and he just look on his face. He just kept getting a little more like pouty the whole time. I was like dude. That's good acting. Stick up for yourself. Tell these young kids. You know what to do. The back brace prevents them from it anyway. I just had to bring that up. Because I I just think that stuff is so funny and what's funny. Is People really do some of that stuff that you're like what yeah? There's some creeps out there. That was a really weird setup for Jim Henson. Because, he's the least harass guy. He was probably ever. Yeah, he's certainly comes across that way. He's a genuinely good dude. It's not one of these stories you hear about like. maybe some of your favorite. Children's books, writers or cartoonists or something maybe were. Bad People. Know apparently, not at all, yeah! He was. Not only. So there's a lot of quotes in this article junk. No, I thought join Stricklin road. It turns out. That's not the case I'm surprised, yeah. Because he's friends with down with at least one of Jim Henson's kids are really who I believe lives here in Atlanta Oh. Wow, and but in this article it's one of those things where everybody who complements Jim Henson. WHO WORKED WITH HIM? They go to the trouble of complimenting him in a way. That's not just. Like! Oh, he was such a great guy. Yeah, they all back up just a little bit because they're cognizant that that doesn't get across sure and they want you to understand that they're talking about more than just the great guy like right always dead, and I'm not gonNA, speak ill of the dead, anyway great guy and that's a really thoughtless. Polite inoffensive thing to say so like frank, said something like he was a, he was a a great guy. But at the same time you know, he was a human. But he was still a really great guy. Right so like what you're thinking of is a great guy. Get rid of that and actually replace it with a genuine human great guy. Yeah, because as a filmmaker, he's a puppet theatre. Obviously, but he was a filmmaker first and foremost which a lot of people kind of forget about. This. Oh Yeah! That's a tough tough job. Super stressful and you and I have seen it can make good. Guys and Ladies Be Real Jerks and you hell under stressful situations. You know it's it's a tough thing. There's a lot of money on the line each day and it's like everybody relaxes this millions of dollars. But Frank is I. think that's the point. He was making like even when he would get frustrated and stress like that. He was still a good guy behind it all I read a a ridden I guess there was a book review of a biography about him that that showed that it was all. Somebody said it was all just play to him. Yeah, like work was play even though he worked really hard. He was able to. Commit himself like that to work. Because to him, he was having the time of his life. Yeah time, and apparently like there was just there was no line between work and play. which now that we've seen that sensitivity training right could've gone on a lot of big I'll show. He just enjoyed the life that he had from what I understand love cars. loaded. That was the same color as Kermit. The FROG He had a Rolls Royce early on. From his work, yeah! Let's talk about. Let's talk about the guy yet I mean if you haven't. Go if you haven't listened to the episode on the Muppets, this is a what I consider just a more in depth part two on the man himself right, but that's one of our favorite all time episodes and from feedback, one of the great all-time fan episodes. Yes, it was a great episode. Yeah, it was just a lot of fun and so I hope. This augments that one hope you do justice so. That's actually one of the reasons why we can do episode because we did a Muppets, episode tweeted about us through. Remember the Hinson. Company did yeah, they did. which was they approve? Huge got their actual approval. Try and was something the the muppets says something about muppets. This is about Jim. Henson is appropriate that we're doing this. Because he was more than just the muppets, even though everybody pegs him with the Muppets, and that is a huge thing. He was more than that and like you said he was filmmaker, but originally started out as. A puppeteer, but kind of a reluctant one. Yeah, he was born in. Nineteen thirty six September twenty fourth. James Maury Hinson Ma. You are Y in Mississippi and his grandmother maternal grandmother was a painter and a quilter and a needle worker, and apparently was a big inspiration to him. Just to seek out the creative in life. Right, which is pretty great, yeah. And one of the one of the things he got into well, he was originally of kind of a fan of a ventriloquist them a little bit, but he he said later on in life they've never. He was never like obsessed with puppets or anything like that like you would have expected him to be. And as he went to college, I think in Maryland, he He got into. He started out as a studio artist. That's what he was studying yet. He looked television above all else right from the time he was a little kid. He was just transfixed by the tube. He almost kind of made himself destined to be on television by being obsessed with it. Yeah, but. He kind of stumbled into puppetry in college, and he started out as a studio art major and ended up graduating with a homework degree, because homework was the only degree that offered puppet making courses. Yeah, he he majored retook puppetry, course at first and. Then a bunch of textiles and crafts courses, which is a great way to me now start building and making your own puppets right so, but he graduated with the homework degree. But by the time he graduated, he was already extremely successful the. Rolls Royce that I mentioned. He bought in time to drive to his college graduation because he'd already created successful shows. In his town, yeah, I think he was in high school. He was on the local TV station. Doing little guest spots and then in nineteen, fifty five. The show salmon friends. debuted in that. You know he also did work on the side making money with. Think. He did some of the really cool concert. Posters of the day, really colorful silkscreen posters and Salmon Princeton, really well. But he still wasn't quite sure like I still don't know.

‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ An enchanting journey following seven clans of Gelfling

"I'd never seen the dark crystal <hes> because i mean i i like the the muppets right and i like sesame street but this is only very tangentially related to that in the dark crystal and yeah so it's a jim henson in produced feature film from nineteen eighty two. It's my friend was describing it as like jim henson trying to do a weird puppet version of star wars and the lord of the rings. I guess yeah i feel it yeah. It's like a dark christo was. It's like a dark ethic. Fantasies end to see sort of where you know. Everything is puppets and it's about this world called throb that has been subsumed by darkness because they're crystal. Which is there sort of animating life. Force has been tainted by evil specifically sc cs. Who are these really cool like grossberg bird things who are basically taking the essence out of the other dominant race in the world which is the gulf ling and they at this point can have pretty much killed all the gambling. There's only we think one gulflink left <hes> like the dirtiest thing that you've ever cuss soon. Okay so that's the thing right so i you hate fantasy. I hate fantasy so i've been trying to reconcile why i liked. I liked the the movie okay but i love the show which works as a prequel to the movie where there are lots of guelph ling and the sexiest aren't while they're evil but like the gulling don't know it yet it because they haven't killed all of them yet <hes> but yeah i was like why do i like the so much there's creatures this lore. There's weird made up language. I hate eight lord of the rings type stuff. I don't. I hate game of thrones type stuff but i think it's super. I really like it in that. It's this this very simple and kind of easy to understand setup. Honestly it's like there's one good guy race and one bag. I race and then like okay. I get it like it's not like. There's like oh and then also the still rocky language and the blah blah's and the white walkers and the shit and i'm like yeah. I don't understand this is crap but in this it's just like there's these guys who look kind of cute they have like cute elf ears and they don't look like gross ugly humans like their kilo puppets and then there's is these guys were ugly the funny looking and they're all animal. How do you feel about star wars all the things. I love star wars but that's jess space. That's the other thing. I love space operas but i do not like <hes>. This is so fancy so anything that's like high hi l. the thing i think i was watching what i was saying my friend while we were watching the movie and the show especially the show was this is like a p._g. Would wanna play because i love j. R._p._g.'s to ray so fan which are also fantasy like i love j. R._p._g.'s and honestly i think it comes down to like aesthetic for me like i liked the dark crystal aesthetic just like i like jay r._p._g. Aesthetic because it's like more cartoony it's not like super her <hes> realistic and you're trying to get me to buy that there. Are these like humans with british accents in year eight hundred we should get you to watch the lord of the rings animated made movie from god that he didn't know way. I liked the hobbit one. I watched that in third grade. It was great.

'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance' makes CGI, puppetry a winning combo

"Light and Kevin car is here to tell us all about the new Netflix movie that dark crystal age of resistance good morning Kevin good morning Michael of the dark crystal age of resistance is a a revitalized series on Netflix if you recall the original the dark crystal was a movie made by the Jim Henson company back in the eighties and it was kind of ground breaking back then because of the use of puppetry to tell a fantasy story which itself is is is quite good and it in this one it's a prequel to the dark crystal. movie that they came out in the eighties in this one tells the story of these creatures that run this does sort of this fantasy world called axes which are the bad guys and they they're sort of like a press of leaders over this this group of creatures called Gulf wings which are basically little elf creatures in the woods and it tells the story of how they got to the point that the movie starts so I I don't want to take too much time to to go into into the weeds about the story but it is about this race of creatures that's basically being oppressed and being led by this group of I guess you see evil creatures that have seized power it's it's a new one to watch it's epic and is beautifully done and it shows that you don't need C. G. R. E. to have your fully realized characters you can still use Muppets at a certain point all right so we can't really afford crystal on this show so I don't know how many light bulbs are we giving the dark crystal age of resistance I'm going to give this one four out of five light bulbs and they're not purple they're bright bright white I thanks Kevin car with your little

How does a pet get cloned?

Let's Talk Pets

12:45 min | 1 year ago

How does a pet get cloned?

"Cloning how does that get cloned so the very first step if you are thinking you might potentially you want to call on your pet Sunday that first step is our genetic preservation service and what that involves is a veterinarian taking a few small skin biopsy samples from your pets and if you're planning in advance and it is best to have these biopsies done while the cat is still alive and healthy so if you're planning in advance it's best to order I biopsy kit and we can ship this biopsy can overnight to the veterinarian or to the client and this biopsy kit has everything that the veterinarian needs to take the samples and to ship them to us at the appropriate temperature so it's just a small four millimeter punch biopsy at the skin so very simple every veterinarian the world is that a punch biopsy before so very easy to do it can be done with the local anesthesia or it can be done under general anesthesia if you are planning in advance in the veterinary purse first to do a general anesthesia then you might consider having this done in conjunction with a dental cleaning something like that where the the dog is already under anesthesia so we have a lot of clients that she used to do it at that time so the the vet takes a biopsy samples very small and very minimally invasive or the pet and would like to have anywhere from to try by an overnight with the return and ex label that included in from these tissues are they going to sell culture and we will grow millions of cells that contain that had DNA and the cells will ultimately be the starting point where the cloning process that is absolutely amazing it really sounds like Jurassic Park so hope is it possible to do Jurassic Park dinosaurs are we just doing cats and dogs I should ask what species can be cloned so there are quite a few species clones Bijan pets was originally part of the company that cloned livestock so cattle pigs goats and sheep have been cloned over the past seventeen years and when we began and by Jim Henson equine we now just clone dogs cats and horses so those are the three species that we clone and weeping cloning courses for about seventeen years and dogs and cats for about almost four years and it's it's going very well the cloning is just growing and growing the more people find out about this and then it's a possibility it's really a growing field with cloning I think a lot of people have concerns and I had a lot of questions because it's not as a topic that was really broached when I was in veterinary school so with cloning I know that Dolly the sheep seem to be healthy land a shorter lifespan than a typical sheep of that particular breed what happens for a dog and a cat is there or horse is there a lifespan basically the same physical issues they have can a brief for instance yes all very good questions so in going back to Dolly the sheep the technique that we use for cloning is essentially very much the same as what was used for Dolly many years ago and it is technically called somatic cell nuclear transfer or S. T. and T. so a somatic cell is any cell in the body that's anything other than a sperm or an egg and for dogs and cats and horses the somatic cells all these are what we grow in the culture from the skin biopsies taken from the pet so that somatic cell is that source at the beginning so that process is essentially the same and how the embryo is made and all of the species is how we use that egg from a donor animal and we removed the nucleus of that egg and we transfer in one of the somatic cells from the skin sample and these agonist cell are now fused together in an embryo starts to grow and then we'll transfer that embryo into the surrogate animal for dogs and cats they're a little bit different than the worst because dogs and cats are litter bearing species so we do transfer multiple embryos into that surrogate mom so is there is that chance that there could be twins or triplets said usually small number of puppies or kittens in the later but that is a chance and usually the clients will take as many as are born in the letter and it's just the one let me go back to your question about the longevity of these animals so Dolly did live a shorter lifespan than normal and so there was speculation at the time twenty two years ago that this was because she was a clone animal there's been a lot of research done on cloned animals and stating their longevity and their health over the years and cloned animals have been shown to live a normal lifespan which is really refreshing for a lot of these pet owners because unfortunately Dolly kind of got a bad rap and because she did let us our lives so it is you know it's the sort of the myths surrounding cloning that cloned animals live a shorter lifespan than an average animal and that's simply not true so cloning animals have been shown to live a normal lifespan and should be just as healthy as the original animal now one question that we do get quite often is let's say you know the the original all dog developed cancer will the cloned dog develop cancer great yes that's comes right on it and the answer is it depends on the cause of that cancer so which we don't veterinarians don't usually no it's not really definitive what the causes of most cancers are but if it was something that was shown to be genetically linked type of disease or illness the net cloned animal is going to have those same genes so that same potential to develop that disease at some point in its life it's not automatically going to develop that disease but that potential is there so sometimes the client can know to watch out for symptoms they may see them earlier and your because they're looking a little more closely for them where there may be some diagnostics that can be done on the Pat to to make sure that this does not developing that disease that the original Pat may have had that should have just the same longevity and health status as the original animal so genetic counseling especially the situation like that because you say are and I have a golden retriever and this golden retriever died of a type of cancer and then she'll star coma but this is just the best dog in the entire world so I want another one just like Goldie and then there is that chance because of the genetic predisposition that the next at could have cancer also said that yes I think it's very important so Mylene you were talking about this genetic preservation that can go on and you'll sometimes have a cloned animal in Sir get that you may have three or four are they obligated to take all the pattern that later and if not what do you do with the other pets and I'm sure people are thinking how many cats and dogs and horses do they have to act to circuits so our litter sizes are usually small just one or two maybe three and puppies or kittens and the letter we did have some larger sizes we had up to five puppies in a litter and this is sort of earlier on in the cloning process when we were at yeah and it's fine tuning in the number of embryos that go into the store get to get the number of puppies or kittens that we're hoping for and most clients will only want just one or maybe two so yeah I can understand work five is a lot to handle so he we do sort of try to treat that but you never know it's kind of like IVF you may end up with twins or triplets and it's just a little bit of a risk that may be there I would say most clients if there are three parties let's say most clients are going to say yes I want every single copy that morning that's completely understandable I know I would end up actually I have my dogs those prisoners I've already talked to my family and that's it okay on my dog Zeus and there's three puppies I'm gonna take one and again my brother you'll take one right and my mother worked I'm gonna give you that so it within my family so I can keep an eye on them and I and that's what most clients will choose to do is is a date they may not keep every single one of them somewhere else but if there's more than they can really take care of it solely on three copies as a lot then they may Debbie does that now I have the claim is not obligated to you take every every cut your kitten that's born with the cloning agreement and they are guaranteed at least one healthy puppy or kitten they're not obligated to take any extra ones there's of course no additional fees for those extra puppies or kittens so in we've had a couple clients that have have said you know I can only take two can you find a good home for these other you know we do have the other ones and we've done that we haven't really get adoption program in the cases that we've done that before those copies of actually been adopted out to you our own employees so it makes it really nice because the the clients can keep tabs on those and they know that the copies went to again how so you have the genetic preservation I want to have the biopsies done small really not painful I agree with you doing little four millimeter biopsies with local anesthesia is so simple you can plan have that preserved how long can you preserve it so if somebody says you know this is really good dog I'm not really sure if I want to do this what's going to be going on later on my life how long can that genetic material be stored and how is it stored I mean I would say most of our clients are are wanting to just preserve the cells are now and it cost is quite a lot where the cloning itself so those clients are just holding on to that DNA we preserve the cells the cells and the cell culture that we do it takes about two to four weeks to complete the culture and then these cells are placed in a crowd files with a crow protected media and they're stored in liquid nitrogen tanks in the cells can be kept stored essentially for ever for decades and we have clients that have stored cells S. for seventeen years and we've actually called a couple of dogs in at least one cat who sells were stored for seventeen years and then they they contest that later on so it's really amazing so essentially forever the cells can be stored there is an annual storage fee for storing cells so they the initial cost of the genetic preservation in sixteen hundred dollars and that includes culturing the cells in the biopsy kit shipment to and from the veterinarian and that also includes the first year of self storage after the first year the annual storage fee is a hundred and fifty dollars per year in the great thing about this is all of the up front fees that the client pays for the preservation and any subsequent storage fees these all get combine an addict gather and then when they decide to clone down the road everything that they've paid to date gets applied toward the cloning so long term clients really like that so I think this is a fascinating way that you're doing this Mullane where you are saving the cells your happiness fee but then you're not being hit with additional fees you know way on top of that because you're paying for a little bit little all the way along that's great now again you are saving the cells it's not embryos because oftentimes we hear about in human medicine where they're saving this genetic material but you're actually saving embryos is that correct that's right for the genetic preservation work we haven't created the embryos just yet they're actually for pets there is not been a technique developed to be able to freeze embryos we can do that and horses so because we've been cloning horses for so long we have improved the technique and initially there was when we first started doing this there was no process available to successfully resent all embryos for horses but now we've developed these techniques we have some of the top cloning scientist in the world on staff your just amazing and so for horses that is our standard thing that we do with the cloning is we we create the cloned embryos and then they are frozen and then they can be shipped and in transferred into their reset mayor at that point but for dog and cat it has to be a fresh embryo so we don't create embryos just yet we just up from genetic preservation we're just simply producing the

Showtime's 'The Loudest Voice' Tells The True Story Of The Downfall Of Roger Ailes At Fox News

"The loudest voice. It's the new Showtime miniseries. Stories about the rise and fall of Fox News and particularly of Roger Ailes, the infamous founder of Fox News. Seth plays a character real life character named Brian Lewis. He was the head of public relations at FOX for many years. He came with Roger Ailes from CNBC when Roger was launching, Fox News. And he was most people would tell you the right hand of Roger Ailes. He was the pit bull. He guarded the company's internal business for Roche ously could be very tough with reporters obviously, but also anybody who tried to crack into the Fox News bubble. I think you'll be interested to hear Sestri bestirred drawing when he was two years old. He wrote a letter to Jim Henson studios when he was nine years old announcing that he was going to be a puppeteer and a cartoonist a kid who kind of knew what he wanted to be from the age of two and, you know, he gets into how do you do that? You have the dream when you're a kid, you move onto the Rhode Island school of design as he did. And. He was hired right away. They recognize his talent out to Hollywood worked on an animated show for a couple years before, again, when he was twenty four years old. He started family guy, which, by the way was cancelled twice was, not an immediate hit, I think people forget that. So to set the scene for you Seth and I got together at cafe. Carlyle at the famed Carlyle hotel in New York City. The cafe Carlyle is a jazz club. Seth has performed there a couple times because on top of everything else begin things that are scary. He sings in public. He's got five albums, including his latest once in a while, and he's been nominated for four Grammy award. So I got him to sit down at the piano, we got him to play a little bit sing a little bit. Do the thing that Seth MacFarlane does, but mostly to walk through fascinating life in fascinating career where the guy just does something different and surprises people all the time, a great conversation with Seth MacFarlane. We start by talking about the loudest voice, the series on Showtime. About Fox News. Thanks for doing this man for sure. So we've already gotten I think halfway through the show already we'll will start for the benefit of the viewers again. Yeah. I want to start with your character before we talk big picture, because I don't think most people know who he is. In fact, I know most people don't know, who is if you don't live in our media world Brian Lewis, who was he. And why is it important character in this big story, Brian Lewis was Roger Ailes PR chief for Fox News? And he also sort of functioned as his right hand man, and a lot of ways you know, this, this was the guy that Roger would blow off steam, too. And, and also the guy who was comfortable enough keeping keeping them in line when he may be got a little too off the rails. And, you know, according to the to Gabe chairman's book, and according to the series, he was also a guy was who was kind of on the outside of the. Emotional end of things. He was he was he was a democrat. Chocking way, working for Fox News. But more importantly, he was kind of a gun for hire. He was there because, you know, it was a good job and the ethics of it didn't really come into play. It was about, you know, being Boba fett. I guess. Liberal hire me, then he's a bounty hunter. So how did he to the extent? You got inside his head by reading the book. How did he reconcile knowing what he was doing was often wrong unethical? Yes. Doing the job. Well, I mean according to the material that I read that he, he at the end of the day he was. He could compartmentalize, he could put his family over here and his job over here, and essentially be two different people. But at a certain point. You know, he he idolized ales for a long time, and he really respected ails, as a marketer. And as as a as a promoter of whatever it was he wanted to promote. And he, I guess must have started to see him unraveling a little bit. And. It was probably a combination of genuine concern. Because there seemed to be a conscience there. And, and professional concern that, okay, I worked for this guy this reflects on me and, and he's starting to come apart at the seams.

"jim henson" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind

"Jim Henson's, labyrinth you remember those features. It looks to me like a days of thunder sunset he does. He looks. He's he's actually is brighter than the fiery. He's he's brighter just about brighter than any sons that I've seen. He looks as bright is like the most obnoxious slushy. You might. At roadside slushy stand. He's something from that flip book. They got to the tables at Chili's. Yeah. Exactly. So he's he's this is already a really bright specimen. So it's almost kind of amazing to realize that that he's he's going to step beyond. He's going to create this this impressive Bauer to bring a mate. Now, one interesting thing about Bauer birds is that you know, you see this contrast between like flashy colors. They would show off which are often they sign of like mate fitness than males can use to signal attractiveness to females but also building these nests is that I have read that there is sometimes a trade off there like the flashier looking Bauer birds and build less elaborate nests and the ones that look let, you know, more drab and have less colors and stuff build more elaborate nests presumably as a compensation mechanism. It's like, hey, I don't have all the, you know, the flashy outfits, but I can build a really good house. Well, that's reassuring. It feels like there's still some balance to the universe. Now another bird that I really love for. For for its nest building capabilities as an advertisement of mate, fitness is known as brush Turkey. Alexandra litho me, and these these are pretty funny. I think one of my favorites. So they're a species of Megapode, which is a type of bird. Of course, Megapode means huge foot and the males of the species build these gigantic mounds of rotting compost often as big as a car like one to one point five meters, high and four meters wide out of soil and dead plant matter and just rotting stuff, and these are nests they used to attract females, and they're not merely an aesthetic statement, like, you know, why wouldn't you like to come hang out on my gigantic pile of rot, the the decomposition of dead stuff. That's taking place in the mound. Actually generates a lot of heat which helps keep the female's eggs warm when she lays them on the mound. She's chosen, and they apparently the the brush turkeys, even reportedly regulate the temperature of the mound by adding or removing plant matter if the temperature isn't just right. Oh, that's brilliant. But as you can imagine. Building like a car sized mound of rotting plant matter is not an easy task. So so a Turkey does this it might take a month to do it? And it could basically like wear him to death to do this thing. So you gotta think about the real stakes that are taking place in nature here. Just building this big compost heap to mate in this is a this is a serious investment that could be thought of as like a life or death proposition. And this brings us back to the white spotted pufferfish. Oh, yeah. What what are its reasons? Right. Like, it's it's it's making an investment here of what sort of investment? Yeah. Exactly. When you look at these strange ephemeral carvings in the loose, sediment of the seafloor, what is the male pufferfish doing, and why is the female attracted and also I mean, consider the amazing disparity in scale with the amount of work. We're talking about here because these patterns that are carved in the sand or up to two meters across which is like six or seven feet..

The lattes known is nice, Peter and ethic, Lloyd, Peter Shuku off. Hello and Lloyd outlived. Yeah. That's me. I am Lloyd I'll to debris from the series which featured such battles as JAMES BOND versus pasta powers Steve Jobs versus Bill Gates, and Jim Henson versus danley. Now. They're back. He Lon musk versus Mark Zuckerberg about today. Do correct. Let's find out why they took the long break and what brought them back. Hi, guys. Hi, hello. Where were you? We live around the corner. So we've been here we we just took a break. Yeah. I got married and had had a baby. And that was a that was a whole thing to the process. We we were making the rap bottles for about six years straight. And that that really meant straight that was every day seven days a week three hundred sixty five days a year for the most part was living in this world of creating this series keeping the series growing. And it just came time to take a break. I think in in modern media. I it's expected to be an every day every week every month. New all the time tweets Facebook posts comments likes, and I think in the old days people used to make an album then go away for awhile and then come back with a new album. And so we decided to try that the last battle. We uploaded was seizing five. The last battle was January of twenty six seventeen twenty seventeen. Yeah. Yeah. So January twenty seventeen was the last time, we uploaded. So now, it's what is it right now, December twenty eight. Yeah. Yeah. So so this is about. England, musket, Mark Zuckerberg. And we tried to think about the sort of most iconic images of them for us in the last couple of years in for us Zuckerberg for sure was the Senate hearing. So we thought we would put him at that table with that microphone. So that's where he is in the opening in the opening slate as you can see it here. And then the musk who like he's got a fly. He's got to do something. So we thought it'd be a bomber jacket. It would be fun. So he's in that as well in this battle at some point in time. And which one of you is in which one. Me being the paste year of two Stephanie the Mark Zuckerberg, and I'm on musk who is it. I'll have to say one of the more challenging people to try to imitate he has a very subtle accent in a very sort of subtle way about him. So I played a lot of characters and subtle isn't really my forte. I'm more smashed face. So it was definitely a challenge in Moscow took to beat the cheerfully frustrated all the time. Like, he he's in a good mood. But he's always stretched too thin and always like on, but he's just a positive person with a lot of positive momentum. But it was a different difficult character to find should tell listeners that I'm interviewing two guys with beards. Yes. And they portrayed two guys with clean shaven faces. Yeah. Did you shave for the holiest? This needs favorite part of going to production for the rap ballads is constantly having to shave my face and put like it's especially difficult. We have to wear a fake beard because we have to shave our real beards. So the glue can adhere to our skin. So we can wear a bigger beard. So the worst. Okay. So this is a serious production involves glue. So yeah, that is sometimes the most difficult part, the costumes and the mustache glued inappropriately or inaccurately to your face is maybe the most irritating thing on the planet and to wrap with that in this in your knows that I have nightmares about that. So thankfully, did not have a moustache. Alright. So Elon Musk is going to take on Mark Zuckerberg, of course, and more battles to come twenty nine thousand nine hundred nineteen with Peter and epic Lloyd, correct? All right.

We've got the team behind the massively popular epic rap battle series from YouTube here today talking tech just under two years ago. The lattes known is nice, Peter and ethic, Lloyd, Peter Shuku off. Hello and Lloyd outlived. Yeah. That's me. I am Lloyd I'll to debris from the series which featured such battles as JAMES BOND versus pasta powers Steve Jobs versus Bill Gates, and Jim Henson versus danley. Now. They're back. He Lon musk versus Mark Zuckerberg about today. Do correct. Let's find out why they took the long break and what brought them back. Hi, guys. Hi, hello. Where were you? We live around the corner. So we've been here we we just took a break. Yeah. I got married and had had a baby. And that was a that was a whole thing to the process. We we were making the rap bottles for about six years straight. And that that really meant straight that was every day seven days a week three hundred sixty five days a year for the most part was living in this world of creating this series keeping the series growing. And it just came time to take a break. I think in in modern media. I it's expected to be an every day every week every month. New all the time tweets Facebook posts comments likes, and I think in the old days people used to make an album then go away for awhile and then come back with a new album. And so we decided to try that the last battle. We uploaded was seizing five. The last battle was January of twenty six seventeen twenty seventeen. Yeah. Yeah. So January twenty seventeen was the last time, we uploaded. So now, it's what is it right now, December twenty eight. Yeah. Yeah. So so this is about. England, musket, Mark Zuckerberg. And we tried to think about the sort of most iconic images of them for us in the last couple of years in for us Zuckerberg for sure was the Senate hearing. So we thought we would put him at that table with that microphone. So that's where he is in the opening in the opening slate as you can see it here. And then the musk who like he's got a fly. He's got to do something. So we thought it'd be a bomber jacket. It would be fun. So he's in that as well in this battle at some point in time. And which one of you is in which one. Me being the paste year of two Stephanie the Mark Zuckerberg, and I'm on musk who is it. I'll have to say one of the more challenging people to try to imitate he has a very subtle accent in a very sort of subtle way about him. So I played a lot of characters and subtle isn't really my forte. I'm more smashed face. So it was definitely a challenge in Moscow took to beat the cheerfully frustrated all the time. Like, he he's in a good mood. But he's always stretched too thin and always like on, but he's just a positive person with a lot of positive momentum. But it was a different difficult character to find should tell listeners that I'm interviewing two guys with beards. Yes. And they portrayed two guys with clean shaven faces. Yeah. Did you shave for the holiest? This needs favorite part of going to production for the rap ballads is constantly having to shave my face and put like it's especially difficult. We have to wear a fake beard because we have to shave our real beards. So the glue can adhere to our skin. So we can wear a bigger beard. So the worst. Okay. So this is a serious production involves glue. So yeah, that is sometimes the most difficult part, the costumes and the mustache glued inappropriately or inaccurately to your face is maybe the most irritating thing on the planet and to wrap with that in this in your knows that I have nightmares about that. So thankfully, did not have a moustache. Alright. So Elon Musk is going to take on Mark Zuckerberg, of course, and more battles to come twenty nine thousand nine hundred nineteen with Peter and epic Lloyd, correct? All right.

"The other thing I would say is, manners, you know, you still got access. Those manners from that, you know, mom and dad and your teachers taught your way back when of thank yous and please and appropriate timing between when you contact somebody and follow up in. Sometimes I think that there's this misconception that if I'm aggressive, I have to keep being on top of somebody and it really repels people and there's a time to follow up where it's appropriate. But still when you're flying up, you can be polite. You know, thank you so much time. I know this is I know you're probably Pissy. I think I would just keep that in the back of your mind. I've I've learned over the years how to kind of do that, but I'm always having to. Yep, sometimes evaluate when do I go in again. I think the biggest issue is that most good things don't ever see the light of day because people over think things are so hard on themselves or they make one. Thing and someone doesn't like it. So then they sit on these ideas for twenty years and have a job selling insurance and they hate it. Yes. And there's just all this impostor syndrome, this self doubt. I mean, this is the biggest stuff, and I talked people in unlike don't write a song and think that you're going to be Taylor swift do what she actually does write a thousand songs on the best ten, right? But this whole idea of like the grittiness keep going become better, you know, have a respect for that. It takes time to get better and better things and you have to stay in it. What advice would you say to people in terms of? Is it possible to have a dream job? How can they get from where they are to where they wanna be? What do you think? I think that I recognize that for a lot of people, we have to pay the bills. And so you know there, there's the survival part of our existence. So it's hard to make that instant leap for for many of us. So when I say what I'm about to say. I'm very respectful of that. And I think that if that's the case as well, then you need to feed the. So I always say to people pay the bills and feed the spirit side-hustle yes, I'd household feed the spirit or just start writing and see where it leads and don't expect yourself to sell your first novel or so hard on ourselves. We expect especially younger generation of forty, nine. So I can say younger generation, it's a process and celebrate. Here's something like celebrate the small victories and the winds over time. It's going to keep feeding Neo, and that's small victory can be. I had a great meeting had a really great meeting PS. What if you don't sell it? It's okay. You had a great meeting or you sat down and actually open the laptop and wrote three paycheck, length thing. Exactly. So give yourself time and don't expect it to happen overnight, but start feeding the spirit now every day and for my spirit as I've just told you, I. Like to walk down target tiles and see what's fresh with kids, or, you know, hanging out on the playground. I'm actually cub scout leader. I love being around, you can't. I'm being how old is that? Seven and a half, but I get to be around kids all the time. That's my job, you know? So I think it's always fun to do a creative blueprint fear self. Oh yeah. And I do that for my heart events. Do it for myself personally, talk about the creative blueprint can be, I'm crazy my own special brandy box around what I do. So for Jim Henson shows, this is something I created. I want dream projects, but I want doers..

"I felt so strongly about this type of curriculum. So we're like, let's invent it. Let's go find these educators to help us create this, like we just went for it and with our digital animation. So again. I would say that that was not something that the marketplace was. You know, there was a demand, you know your audience? Yes. On level your audience is the buyer right now, the distributor, but really the kids, but can mama's bad dads and then sticking with that sticky with holding onto that. This is what they really want. This is what they really need right over the years. I do a lot of self reflection and I'm not afraid to start over Dan. Dan occur in and say, okay, maybe we need to push this differently. Maybe I need to reapproach. I'm doing things differently, not afraid of feedback. I'm strong about my vision and what I wanna do, but not afraid to maybe try development in a different way. For example, here's something that's for an example, the kissing hand. So the kissing hand, we put up these social media back to school tips, and that was very deliberate because one of course we thought it'd be wonderful to share back to school tips with these characters that were trying to develop a series from. But that also came out of a suffer flexing. I had when I went to the summit all summit and I was talking to all these moms and incredible business women. And I kept thinking these gatekeepers, the networks are like, is their way to like jump over them and just get straight to our audience and get feedback right away. And maybe we could try it jus-. Small way and see how it goes. And that just came out of self reflection. Like is there a different way we should be trying this and we did, and it was very successful. But like I think one of the things that it's important to be able to do is to to reevaluate. And like I said, get feedback and try anything. Oh my God. I was so inspired when you said that I feel like we should create a hashtag, but says not afraid of feedback. Because if you do want to know your audience, you need that data and you need. You need to be able to to move the ego aside and say, if ultimately, what I'm trying to do is serve you. I should find out what you need what you want, and it might mean that I didn't get it perfectly correct. And that's not the point. Yeah, that's great. That's fine. So this sort of notion of like it's okay to make mistakes, and then you want the feedback because we have so many people write in and say, well, what do you do when you get rejected? And you send in your script and someone. Doesn't like it. What what do you do? How do I do? Yeah, you tell that person, honestly, keep going. Keep writing. Keep, you know, put that script aside, don't be precious. Try again start again. I think one of the things that where I find confidence every day is I have an idea every day. I sort of hold that up to myself on feeling. I feel down a lot. I get upset a lot when we're out there pitching dream projects, and we do get rejected at the Jim Henson company, believe it or not people. And I just have to say, you know what? I have an idea day and where we're creative beings and we're dreamers, and we're gonna just keep going right Kermit the frog, where dreamers and doers. So I would say if you your project is getting rejected again, a keep going, try against set it aside, come back to it, try new project, but also listen to the notes and the feedback and see if you feel like they're coming from a trusted source. I've now gotten to know my buyers. Well, enough to know who. Oh, I value in respect their opinion and who I don't. It sometimes like more on the playground, we want the kid doesn't want to play with us to play with us. So or the guy who showed emotionally unavailable and you gotta, you gotta go, Don. Let that go with focusing on those people trying to sell to those people. That's hard to tell ourselves since we're sitting here right now. I just wanted to say in front of you because I've told people on this podcast few times about how how many things I tried that that didn't work..
