"I actually I should e email chain. See what he thinks of this movie. He's kind of just living in his house right now. Not really talking to the outside world. From what i understand but him he must have I i could just imagine. All of these just unfinished scripts that he probably just one after another after another starts and stops. Oh yeah well i mean my favorite screenplay maybe of all time is actually last action hero and that final draft the draft. He did yeah. I love shane both as a person and as a filmmaker. I don't think he quite has what carnahan has especially as a director. I've never been in love with any of the movies directed you know. Like i know that there's a big falling out there per kiss kiss bang bang and the nice guys but i thought that the nice guys especially with just like really heartbreaking like can you imagine the nice guy but let love it but can you imagine if joe carnahan had directed the nice guys you know what i mean like somebody who has a better sense of rhythm action and comedy like as a director. Like i don't know i just. I like his scripts are so good. That i feel like they deserve the best treatment and sure i don't know if he's that guy. Well i think the nice guys is perfect. As but i i like carnahan though so i'm sure he would have done a great job as well for sure. I mean my favorite team. Black movies still army and three. But that's only because it has rebecca hall and and so there you go that will help august. You have no idea all in the night house david. Peace my last piece is it's an early gene hackman film. It's an early michael ritchie film. The guy who did a golden child in bad news bears and It's an early from coal. Prime cut can prime cut is a movie about a gene hackman..

Odds are if you're listening to this. You haven't seen this movie yet because nobody is watching this movie but everybody should be watching it because it is so much fun. It's still out in theaters right now. I'm sure it'll be on. Vod like any day now But you should go wash this movie. We got to joe carnahan movies in the last year between this and boss level and he's kind of on a roll right now. You know joe. Carnahan doesn't always get the respect that he deserves. I think these last two movies have proved it when it comes to action movies. That are not john wick type action movies or marvel type action movies. He's the guy right now and this is really an original fun piece of movie joining me to talk about. It is joe black. Who's been here on the show.

We got an interesting one for you guys. We're gonna be talking about glen. Dan's eggs death rider in the house of vampires. Yeah we covered his first film veronica last year and it was a fun movie to talk about.

Joe black was also really excited about it and was planning a trip to las vegas to come see the First showing of it turned out he was also able to see it in. La before he came to vegas. But still i got to hang out with joe black for the first time here in las vegas we went to the screening and then we ended up recording this episode. Which by the way happens to be the two hundred episode of piecing together. Now with the caveat that there's actually like two hundred ninety something episodes if you count all the special episodes breaking it apart the missing pieces. The director followups the all kinds of other stuff that i've put into the feed. There's a lot more than two hundred but this as far as the main numbered episodes go. It's episode two hundred.

"Welcome to another episode of piecing it together the podcast where we take a look at a new movie and try to figure out what movies inspired it and today on the show. We are talking about greed which happens to be the last new release. I got to see in the theaters before movie theaters. All shut down due to the corona virus situation going on in this crazy world. We're living in right now Of course those of you who know me know that King Kong was the last last movie I saw in the theater before everything shut down. Who knows what the next movie. I'll get to see a movie. Theater is but for now. I get to remember greed as a Memory of of the Times. C. is what I like to call it before. Corona virus and greed is a new film from Michael winterbottom starring as a lot of his movies. Do Steve Coogan. And it's a great comedy a kind of a little bit you mentally style and Really Great Social Satire and is a fun movie. That did not get a lot of attention when it came out but hopefully now that it's out on. Vod more people will check it out and joining me for the episode is someone who loved this movie returning Co host Joe Black. So before we get into the conversation. I do want to remind you to make sure you're subscribed to piecing it together on your podcast APP of choice. You can rate and review us on Apple podcast podge chaser and follow us on social media at Piecing. Pod joined the facebook group popcorn and puzzle pieces. Maybe even support us over on Patriot where we do. Have lots of advance episodes available for you to check out? Greed was one of them has been sitting there since we recorded this back in March and Yeah so you could always jump in there and throw a couple of bucks a month and get access to early episodes as well as some new music stuff that I got coming real soon so lots of stuff happening around Patriot and I think that about does it. Why don't we jump into this conversation about greed? I'm really happy to finally get this one up on the feed all right so joining me today for an episode that we we've been trying to record for a little bit now. It's been a little while. Some things have happened but but we're here to finally do it. We've got Joe Black on the show to talk about greed. How's it going Joe doing very well? How are you doing in this quarantine? Oh I'm doing all right I am. am filling my days with just. I. I have so much to do and I'm doing i. It's it's kind of It's kind of weird. It's it makes me feel strange that I could. I get so much of the things I wanna get done done and not have to do anything else. Almost feel guilty I'm filling days which is so much you know it's awesome. Yes same I. I just moved into a new apartment in Pasadena so I've been like decorating that. Getting that all set up and I've been finishing all those blue rays and stuff that I was supposed to have done months ago. I've just been like from wake to sleep. Just nonstop work work. Work work work every day in NEOM MIRACLE. I got anything done before this quarantine. The Africa I was. I was even possible that we had even less time like I. I don't even know him but yeah no this movie. Greed is one I. It was one of the last things I saw in the theater. And you recommended it. I hadn't even heard of it. Although you know in looking back I did see the trip. I don't remember if I saw the other Steve Coogan Michael winterbottom movies. But I know I saw the trip But I I wasn't aware of this movie going into it. I went in completely blind and I enjoyed it quite a bit and I know you loved it your favorite movie this year so far. I mean yeah I mean it's that do little though so I mean it's not like it's stiff competition thing but yeah it just. It floored me. It was the last movie that I saw in the theater. Actually Nice. I did not make it out again and I was. GonNa go see divine madness. The BETTE Midler Michael Ritchie Film on the Thursday like. They basically quarantined US two days before that had had that corn happened on Friday. Instead of Tuesday Bette Midler divine madness would have been the last thing as on them but I my last movie was actually the screening of King Kong and that was when people are already like Kinda like shaming me for going to the movie theater. Still which which which. King Congress they the the nineteen thirty. Three okay I was GonNa say any other version I would have shamed you just in general would. What are you doing with yourself? Yeah but no. This was the thing I saw before it though and yeah I mean were you when this came out. Was that something that was like you're like looking forward to a big fan of the winterbottom stuff or I like what I've seen of his I. I liked all three of the trip. Movies Tristan Shade. I mean like I yeah. I like what he's done. I didn't know that He had made it. I just I saw trailer for it and There was just something about the trailer you know what I mean. I didn't read anything about it. I didn't I just. I saw the trailer and I said I feel like they're hiding something every now and then. I'll see a trailer like that. I'm like that's not the movie That I'm GonNa see if I go to that movie. You know what I mean like. They're trying to sell it. They tried to sell like a will. Ferrell Anchorman kind of Danny McBride eastbound and down kind of thing. But it's not. It's a deeply moving in deeply disturbing Almost traumatic Cathartic. It's an incredible film. And it's so Understated it's it to me. It's it's ideal Cinema audience friendly but like so So buydell I duNno drive. It makes sense Steve. Coogan is just an actor too. Who's just never gotten his do over here at least Sure he just. I mean Gosh. Hamlet to being one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. And then I. I've love Steve Coogan so long that like I went to see tropic thunder mainly for him. So you could imagine my disappointment when he violently exits the film about twenty five minutes but he is great in it and I do love that movie. Even if I don't know I take it. You're not a fan hate it. I think it's terrible. Oh every every few years Try TO REWATCH IT IT. It just never pans out. It just never too obvious. And I love Ben Stiller's other movies. Everything else been stiller is done I think is gold cable by one of the all time greats. Oh yeah absolutely I tropic. Thunder is nothing but dead after Doug after dud. There's like two or three good jokes. Camp can't win them all. I guess well all right. Well let's get into green. Let's get into some puzzle pieces and I do want to just say real quick before we get your first one. Is You know we? We've kind of talked about it a little bit throughout this conversation already. It has been a weird month and to save that my brain has been a little busy and maybe Some things are a little foggy. That may may happen during this conversation. But I'm sure I'm sure we'll be all right. Well I'm in the same boat and especially with how packed the movie is like. That's this big true. The movie so dense in a good way. Yeah absolutely there is a lot going on this thing So what do you got for your first piece? Okay so for my first piece. I mean can't have a mockumentary I mean. The movie is set up kind of half mockumentary and you can't do that without making some kind of Christopher guest reference and I think that not only in format does it most closely relate to but also in content Christopher guests For Your consideration. I had it as well. You had that one specifically typically for your considerate. Yeah Yeah because that film likes most of his films which I'm not the biggest fan of his actually I don't really like the tone of Mighty. We ended best in show. They're kind of like depressing. You know very depressing movies But for your consideration I think Had A little more love to it and it's not a full blown mockumentary like the rest of his work. It's half mockumentary half you know satire comedy but like This film like greed. It doesn't it doesn't steer away from dark places and it doesn't end unlike the rest of Christopher guest's movies which are all kind of hyper exaggerated some of the characters in for consideration are very human and if they're not human they become human throughout the course of it like Parker Posey's character with her relationship deteriorating with the other actor when she gets Oscar Buzz and he doesn't and then Harry Shearer Scherzer where he likes sitting there waiting by the phone in the morning for the call hoping he gets the Oscar nomination because he doesn't have a TV or radio so like like greed. I think that for your consideration dare to creep on you in its knowing agency and also to specifically focus on an industry that is troubling Which do that being the film industry but greed being the fashion industry?.

"I think they ran out of money for underwater effects. One more land scene or something but no they just get rid of that land so you don't need them going and finding the tomb in the on the plane and the discovery of the thing that he's given of all that just go right from that to them being like. Why wouldn't he know where the fucking thing he was? was you know in a rump. Like just go right. They're like and that's actually come up on a few podcast lately about the fetch quest thing in in movies lately there's been a lot of fetch. Fetch quests like video games because nobody knows what the hell they're doing anymore. They're too busy trying to please people before they people even know what they're going to get. You know what I mean so true. And that's what Shit like like having rebel Wilson being like cat. Got Your tongue like. Oh let rebel Wilson do her thing. It's like why fucker she's part of the part of the process. It's not for her. Yeah she seems to be having a blast you like I like Taco good on you man. I saw that with my niece. Who I also cats with with She was a twelve at the time. Thirteen now when we watch aquaman with her and with my with my good friend hope and hope was in love with it for a minute one. And my niece hated Aquaman and she turned to me one point she was like uncle. Joe Why are we still here and I point. I pointed to hope hoping I said because Cheney that's my these changes because Cheney sometimes you gotta stick around because the kid is having fun that's right that's absolutely right. I think that's the thing you gotta go into that movie with Turn the little KNOB that turns your brain age you gotTa turn it back to twelve and then well my niece. She didn't WanNa see cats. I only saw it because she wanted to see it. I thought she would want to because she loves musicals when I surprised her at Christmas She was like you know. What are we doing? I was going to go see cats and she was like why but she really enjoyed it. She's like I have so much more respect for my cat now barrels for your necks piece. Okay my next piece. Is Peter Jackson's. Meet the feebles. Yes yeah for Any of you. Who might not know? Peter Jackson used to be the greatest filmmaker alive With his love his early stuff so his first five films are arguably we like. It might be the best run of five movies since like John. Landis you know what I mean like you know John Landis said Schlock Kentucky Fried Movie Animal House. Blues Brother's American world in London and Peter Jackson. I know right and Peter Jackson. What did he had bad taste? Meet the feebles. Dead Alive heavenly creatures in the frighteners. Slow Good Anna those and in my personal opinion he didn't make another truly great film again again until the desolation of SNOB. But that's another story but Meet the feebles is is a back stage. Melodrama a violent backstage melodrama about the muppets or rather the feebles so the film is done exactly like the muppets where it's like puppets interacting getting in the race there in the real world and it's backstage drama them getting ready to perform a show so unlike the final dress rehearsal and things could not be going worse like the heroin ruin addicted knife throwing frog is going into withdrawal the evil the evil Like ad rat is like running around trying to shoot porn. Learned the the the guy who runs the feebles giant walrus named Blanche is trying to do a big drug deal with a warthog on a golf course trying to screw him over while simultaneously trying to have an affair with his secretary but his wife is the star of the show. Heidi Hippo the Miss Piggy substitute who ends up losing her mind and fucking blowing. Everyone away with a machine gun. I haven't seen it so I gotTa Watch sad movie. It's a master. It really is masterpiece. That word gets thrown around a lot but like this is a masterpiece. Peace and here's why because the tag so. This was Peter Jackson's follow up to the canned film festival. Entry bad taste aced at which was a you know an art house. Moderate hit and the tagline there to tag lines for Meet the feebles. One of them is Hell hath no fury like a Hippo with machine-gun John Nice and the other tagline is from the film maker that brought you bad taste comes a movie with no taste. And that's pretty good and I say this puzzle piece because I think this is another film like cats where I think people just did like when I show it to friends. They hear the premise that sounds funky honky and they just do not know what's about to hit them. You know what I mean just like gats like people here this premise. That sounds hilarious and ridiculous and then they go and it's like oddly sincere and kind of creepy and like because it's so felt and believed you know what I mean like you just like it's actually genuinely upsetting now. How the reaction most people have two cats as they? Just start laughing reaction if you will have to meet the feebles is turn this shit up. People don't go that far basic. No well well you know. It's so funny though with so many people that have shown that movie too. They're like I got to see it. I'll show it to them twenty minutes and they'll be like turn this off and then like I'm not getting a year. We'll go buy a year will go by and then they'll be like hey. What was that fucked up movie with the muppets and like heroin? Yeah let's watch that and then the watch the whole thing like this. It's always awesome. Yeah and I think the Peter Jackson like can you imagine if he had made meet the feebles. Well we don't want to Piss off the muppet fans you know what I mean like. We gotta make sure that we're not to mean we're not to just like but no he didn't hold back and he didn't even have the money. I mean cats. One of the problems with cats is that it was a hundred million dollar movie so like where. I have certain things. You have to do like well if you have rebel Wilson. I mean she's gotTa make jokes in the. You've got the Idris Elba Elba in the film. I mean he has to be in the whole movie. Not just at the very end like the play so but Peter Jackson thankfully made this movie with pennies and it looks like it but like man what you sacrifice in in content for quality get Outta here. Cats would have been cooler if they'd have been made for thirty million dollars. People just in costumes right for sure. Well I think that would have alleviated some people's issues with it to like regular people who aren't watching it and just loving it for how crazy it it is you know I I think that not having that these. CGI Cat people would have definitely helped. You know one thing I wanted to ask ask you before I move on to my next puzzle piece though and I love that that piece meet the feebles. I love that I. I think it's the first time the feebles has ever come up on this podcast. But I'm what do you think if we had the opportunity to talk to Tom. Hooper right now and tell him. The first puzzle pieces were Fritz. The cat and meet the feebles from you. What what what do you think he would think of those as puzzle pieces for his movie? I don't WanNa be an asshole. But he probably like Oh have to see those films. I actually I mean Gosh here we go. I think he's a trash director. I remember when I saw king's speech I was like this is fucking garbage like this guy feeling. Most people feel that way but I mean but you know funny enough. I think that I think that ultimately I think that's where the movie has its weakness. Okay I gotTa Stop Shitting on the moon because it really like before I go on I wanNA say like basically you know how the evil dead to DVD famously. At the bottom has three stars Roger Ebert like you know instead of four to three stars. Roger Ebert cats could have three stars Joe Black but the director. Tom Hooper first of all I think. His directing style works for this movie because its directing style is kind of like a cap in that like you ever watched account like walk around and then just like dart up a wall and then like staring a corner and then like a rollover on their back and they look at you and then they're like they have an attitude they just kind of like start licking themselves. That's kind of his style. Like I remember watching Les Miz and I was like what the fuck are you doing dude like that. Everything's Talos up on this. And then yeah look at that. Let's hand held it but then stabilize it but then like not do anything except just be still like I but cats is. I think his style actually perfectly suited it But I think it's all by mistake on the directing level I think that the the cast and the production design and and I think all of them. They showed up to make a fucking movie and Tom. Hooper was just like. Oh who you know. That's I think Tom Tom who would be like. I'll have to see those films. I didn't know Peter Jackson Jackson made anything before. Lord of the have you see by show John Adams with I don't think has anybody seen that show. I I only saw because we played it at blockbuster when it came on when I worked there we got the DVD's and nobody was renting it and they're like well. Why don't we play it and I'm like you've really what people well not rent this? I'm actually surprised Paul Giamati. He's not in this movie. I could see him as one of these Yeah like I got to save my my the one of the greatest pleasures I got that was Ray Winston God which none of that is in is in the play. None of that are on the on the Thames. Like in the play McCafferty just shows up at the very end and kidnaps old deuteronomy and the cavity is kind of like an anarchist. Like they talk about him a couple times. But you don't see him he doesn't want to win the Jellicoe Ball. He's just like fuck you. I'm the best buckle deuteronomy. I'm better than him right. You know like he's anarchy amidst religion. You know what I I mean. That's the whole point of him in this. It's weird because like I like everything they did with him. Like how he's making. Everybody just wants to win the Jellicoe Ball. I was into all of that. Not until the very end where like he liked tries to jump on the thing and then falls and then it was just like oh you had no idea how to end that you know what I mean. Yeah for sure. Oh Man all right. I'll go to another piece here. Actually a movie. I just saw recently for the first time we were quick plug for awesome movie year. We were doing an episode on it. It's Terry Gilliam's the adventures of Baron munchausen masterpiece. Yeah well we we talk about it in our box office flop episode coming up this season but yeah no. It's a crazy inventive. Wild movie movie as all his movies are for the most part..

"joe black" Discussed on Piecing It Together Podcast

"Right one to another episode of piecing it together the podcast where we take a look at a new movie and try to figure out what movies inspired it and today on the show I did not want to leave two thousand nineteen movies behind until I got a chance to talk about cats. That's right we are doing an episode on cats from director. Tobe hooper. Did I just say toby. Hooper I it seems like a Tobe Super Movie Tom. Hooper based of course the android Weber Musical and starring a whole bunch of people in. CGI Cat costumes. uh-huh dancing and grinding and doing all kinds of weird stuff. It's a very strange movie and I have with me. Joe Black who who you have heard on the show before Joe loved this movie and so he was the only choice to have as my co host for this episode. I loved it for other reasons. Although who actually as I come to find during this conversation we had our reasons are. It's so far off from one another so we have a great conversation coming up for you. It's a long one. It's over an hour long about cats so we had a lot to say. I do WanNa remind you before we get into it. Please make sure you are subscribed to piecing it together on your podcast APP. Up of choice. You can rate and review us on Apple podcasts. Or on Pod chaser you can follow us on social media at piecing pod or join our facebook facebook group popcorn and puzzle pieces without any further. Ado though I'd say let's get into this one because I have been looking for talking about cats for a while. Now and it's a fun one Array back on the show with us today. Ah We've got kind of a special on. We've got Joe Black with us. How's it going Joe to my special or is this a special show? which is it's special because because you are just a perfect person to have for like this because there are not many people I could have had as guest co host for the movie cats? That had this movie in their top ten films of two thousand nineteen. That's true that's true. It was not top five but it was top ten. Then what was it number six. It was number seven. It just barely meet out. This film called head. Listen Tangle meant that I do WanNa plug for my buddy right. He's he's a Norwegian. Norwegian filmmaker Couple of Norwegian filmmakers pit and Ray Raymond they are terrific. It's a movie called headless entanglement where they kidnapped the Prime Minister of Culture Norway and they hold hold them hostage to get a budget to make their next film. It's Beavis and butthead meets like American movie. It's awesome well if it's better than cats than I really should check. Check it out but as we get into this conversation I will say I don't know I. I had had a great time at cats. I know some people. Obviously this movie's getting trashed left. And right we both know that But I had a fun time with it and I certainly do fall in the camp of like my my jaw just dropped open like I can't believe what I'm watching and I do have respect for a movie like that. Last year we covered a show. You and a movie called Serenity which also was a movie that's pretty much shit on by everybody but you loved it. I loved it for the wrong reason Tom but this is you know that's what I think. This is going to be another interesting one because it definitely comes from That kind of everybody's GonNa get something different out of it kind of a point point of view. Oh sure for sure. I've noticed too I. I've seen the film twice. I've seen cats twice. I saw once in Florida on Christmas Day. With my niece and my brother and friends and We all really enjoyed it. A sincerely enjoyed it. And then the audience clapped at the end which was impressive to me and then I came back and I saw it here in Los Angeles With my girlfriend and everybody was just laughing everytime Judi dench would pop up on screen like every time we would just cut to her pupils rolling in the aisles. And then at the day clap too so that was interesting interesting. Yeah as long as as long as it's like Tommy was so says laugh. Have a good time just as long as you don't hurt each other was that was that James Franco. I can't it was okay. What do I man I would? I was the only one who clapped at the end of serenity. So there's progress sir. I might have clapped. I'm not sure I stood up and clap nude. I'm not even lying. I stood to my feet and I clapped. I was that guy. I love that movie. Well well Let's get into cats. I'm sure we'll have some pretty wide ranging puzzle pieces here. What do you got for your first piece? I get to start this lucky me. Okay so like I had written down all these notes but I'm just GonNa Kinda go Let's start crying. Let's go back to chronological okay. So the first one I have is a is a Ralph Ralph Bakshi Film Fritz. The cat I have you ever seen that movie. I don't think so. I mean I certainly know of it. It's very controversial. It was based on Robert Crumbs Comic Book of the same character. Chrome actually hated the film chrome who deducted or about It's a from nineteen seventy one and it is this X.. Rated sexually and racially charged political radical film about a cat. Who's in college? Who wants to be part of the counterculture And it is about like it's it's all a metaphor for like the racial and Sexual Liberation Nation of the time and And it's all done with animals with with You know we'll Fritz himself. He's a cat you know. And then there's a most most black black characters are represented with crows played by their their black crowes. Oh and at the time when it came out It first first of all it it. The movie May made ninety million dollars like in one thousand nine hundred seventy one with an x rating. It was the first is animated film to be given an x rating and and the first film D use like well. You know. It's funny actually claims. Now the director and writer. He claims that like like he's like I got an x rating for that movie for things that the simpsons do every weekend. It's like no incorrect. You did not because the simpsons in fact did not start their film with like a an orgy. Complete with like you know like no I mean this movie is full of like it's animal nudity. But it's like you know like cats ads like that nice little hybrid of human and animal and let you know what what are they. Exactly exactly this movie so fucked up but But where I and and to me cats is very similar. I mean I don't know if you've ever seen the play cats I have not no and that that's one thing like I really wonder how that affects the anybody seeing this movie is whether or not they've seen it well. Cats is born out of a different kind of theater than your conventional narrative. Tired of you know what I mean. It's very avant-garde it's very it's like movement theater really and and I just think that like people weren't ready for that You Know I. I think that people weren't And I don't mean this is a condescension. They're just not used to that kind of thing you know. That's something you have to become familiar with the apt get warmed up into really embrace and And the play in the film actually vary their different in some positive and some negative ways you know Then I'll get into that a little bit later but I mean for right now I can say that the movie unlike the play has a main character her that main character the little white cat who gets dropped off. She's not in the play right She was added because in the play. They're just singing to the audience. Introducing racing themselves on the land. You can't do that. Yeah it seems like every song is just another introduction. It's like ten introductions one after another and nothing much else right we'll entertain the idea of the plays. That's what they're presenting their case to why they should be able to go to the happy side layer at the end of the Jello Ball. and Oh is that what happened. Yeah Yeah and each one is from different corner of society. You know what I mean. And it's melt the indulgence of different corners of society now every different corners self-indulgent and then out all ultimately feeds leads into religion. Jalen will cats You know but but I think that like by adding a main what Fritz. The cat did very wisely that cats. The film kind of suffers from his Fritz. The cat married itself one hundred percent to its radical article perspective. Right out of the Gecko like it is radical. There's no conventional narrative to speak of whatsoever and this movie attempted to do that. It attempted to Kinda like create a kind of conventional through line some of which works some of which doesn't And I think that that ultimately too I feel like this film is an animated film overall. Lay and I think that's going under appreciated too when people talk about the CGI and stuff like that. It's like yeah absolutely but it's like it's decidedly. What it is you know? It's animated and also watch the trailer after seeing the film The trailer Taylor folks. If you haven't seen the film the movie looks nothing like the trailer. Yo they were they were still working on effects right up until like released a and then of course they famously Asli changed the effects like a week later or something like that right right. Yeah well they. They added like thirty eight seconds of altered effects. Something like that. But but but also I think to Fritz. The cat is credited by being an animated film. Ralph Bakshi did better than anybody else. is that he would push the limits of animation. He would say okay. We're animating this this is what we're GONNA do. You know it's going to be this radical and pads. I think does I think I think they got a little scared and they tried to like tone it down some. It's funny. I really do love this film but this is going to be mostly critical podcasts. From me because I love the movie so much and I want this to happen and I want more movies like this to do it right. Well Oh I think It's a good jumping off point for my first puzzle piece because you're talking about Committing a one hundred percent to that that crazy vision you know of of of being an animated film like going for anything that could possibly go for and I think you're right it is holding back a little bit however I I also think that there there are certain aspects of it where where they are still going for that one hundred percent and and Tom Tom Hooper. I you know for better or worse really committed to some kind of strange vision. And that's where my first puzzle piece is. Actually Aquaman wish was another movie that gave me that same feeling of this. This director in that case James Wan Director had a vision for what this movie should be and it is not going to make sense to almost anybody. But he's just going to make this fucking fucking movie and we're going to watch it and I you know it's going to be what it is and people either can go along with it or not i. It's just craziness after craziness after craziness. It's I can't believe they're doing this now. Rebel Wilson is now tearing her skin off often eating human face. Yeah I I imagine it probably is. I wonder how they pulled that off all off. You know. It's not in the play all the stupid little cat. Puns that she does like like all the cat puns in this none of that is in the play. That's actually gonNA come up in a future eh puzzle piece. So I'm I'm I'm glad to know that I did not know that that there wasn't as many puns and they're not plans. What the hell was? They're just songs and no PUN. It's it's it's just songs and they're brilliant. Well yeah so I mean obviously I loved. I know a lot of the I did but I loved loved it for a similar reason of like Holy Shit. What is happening to me right now? Like I can't believe what I'm watching this is so oh freaking crazy it is it. Is I have a question for you since you loved that movie. Do you think that they could. I personally feel like they could have cut out the entire tire desert sequence. Oh my God yeah all of it like you could just literally go from them with leaving Atlantis Right. That's where it is Atlantis Right Leaving leaving Atlanta's and being in a word like.

Is Joe Biden Alright?

"With you we we just have to ask the musical question is Joe all right and I'm I know it's it's easy to have fun with this and I suppose I will now because it's the hairy legs quote and the rubbing my legs down and something about roaches and kids jumping on my lap it's so weird it's not like it was over the weekend either this is from an appearance that I think is somewhere in here in actual Delaware city or Delaware fill your some maybe strain I don't know because it just it was he's doing a lot of reminiscing about the old days which listen it's it's risky to get me to do that and I have my marbles so do I eat it all seriousness as I get ready to play thirty one seconds of audio that might make you drive the car off the road I continue to assert not Joe will necessarily be the nominee but there's something the matter with everybody yeah and I I am again you know what on the on the theme of the earlier our not just but I I'm not gonna vote for any of these people I'm not talking about you know this person's right there as Democrats they are wrong on virtually every issue but I'm let me pick somebody out of the crap like any publisher well the chart and to a degree Cory Booker I don't know why they're not doing better and I flat out rather like tells you Gabbard I don't mean to vote for her but in entry is quirky an interesting he just has the courage to kind of be just a little off kilter and away from the dog not drinking all the cool aid okay so I'm I'm the value aiding people as a commodity as a candidate commodity right and everybody's talking about Elizabeth Warren but I think a lot of Democrats know that if it if it's Elizabeth Warren that trump wins forty states in the end and it's just not going to be Bernie Sanders you know mayor Pete as an ascendancy in progress but I really ready for primetime maybe mayor peaches the thing that mayor P. has going for him may be that he's not Bernie he's not Elizabeth Warren is not Joe and that may be the process by which we get the the democratic nominee but but then you get to the mayor peak quandary which is that you can't find black people who care about him but maybe you can you know I honestly wish but let let me put out the blimp I want to hear from African American caller who loves me repeat he is your guy not that you would take him if he's the nominee because obviously we all get behind our nominee least you guys do so I would hear from black callers who love mayor Pete I I suggest that that's like Sasquatch it doesn't even really exist it's a fictitious creature but if it but if it does I'd love to have that verified right here so what we see and and give indeed the Democrat nomination process is one of the Christian like who's left after everybody else flames out it may be that the Joe Biden's gaffes for his his fraying synapses may just not matter so much Joe's been around forever there's a comfort zone around Joan speaking of black people black people love Joe black Democrats love Joe he's going to do really well in South Carolina Lee highway and or New Hampshire he's got a rock and roll in South Carolina Caroline so knows I could not about that along with it but he'll he'll do really well in South Carolina so I would suggest you know when you're what we have still been a couple of dozen or so Democrats running that when there are only two or three left one of them will be Joe one of them will be Joe Biden and maybe we'll have more moments like this so this is at least a couple weeks old but over the weekend people of had an amazing time with it so here we go Joe is reminiscing about his Danny's as a lifeguard you know I said on the stand and they get hot I got a lot I got hairy legs that turned that it that that that that that turned about blonde in the sun and the kid you sick about the region the poll I wrote my leg down so was traded that watch the hair come come back up again Hey look at so I learned about roaches I learned about kids jumping on my lap and I love kids jumping on my lap and I tell you what but of there you go now this this is not a multi something I've dug a little deeper we have team coverage it I'm a Dave maybe you remember this do you remember the Joe Biden yarn but he told about corn pop it was a person a a a a a some objectionable soul name one pop I found a little bit of this let's just let's let's just go it is the same event until our brain leaks out our years all all all lex takes on this a bit but here's that is it is this I'm really quite serious about this because this is about the the commodity that a candidate becomes his this is horribly unfair could you cherry pick all kinds of things because I'll say this again I've said it five times today if you follow me around and make it may not be that crazy but what will I go off on some riffs but if you say well is years years thirty seconds mark Mavis you'll think I belong in a rubber room it depends on what you find in what I happen to be focusing on but I guess that would be just be me speaking extemporaneously it be me in the middle of a show me on the middle of a conversation in private life me whatever if I'm standing at a lectern running for president I'm probably trying to avoid things like a lot I learned that done it makes a difference this was the diving board error and I was one of the guards and they were allowed to choose a three meter board if you fell off side where you landed on the dance or the dark cement over there Bob was a bad news one pop was a bad dude here is Joe's is corn pop available can can we book can we book corn pop for you know some segment in the next hour they ran a bunch of bad boards and I did yeah and back in those days you jot things have changed one of the things that he does if you use pot made you're here you have to wear baggy cap it sure is up on the board would listen I said Hey Astor you off the board rock come up and drag you off okay that's actually pretty funny at least it was in need of nineteen fifty eight it eight Astor a reference to Esther Williams a of a movie star famous for her a classic role holes I'm gonna give Joe some some credit for that actually course that's from guys in our administration weight came off and he said on meet outside my car this was mostly this is Ralph public housing behind it my car was a gate on here I parked my car outside the gate hi he said I'll be waiting for your great burger three guys you straight razor not a joke there's a guy named bill right mouse the only white guy he did all the lord he was the mechanic and I said well my god Joe is a race obsessed there's a racist bone in Biden's body which is riven by the concept of what color everybody is the only out here in the basement where mechanics where where all the bull builder it you know the chain management chain went across the defense any cut off a six foot let the Cheney for what he did you walk out with that change and your credit card so you may cut me ma'am but I'm gonna wrap this chain around your head I said you're kidding me he said now if you don't don't come back and he was right so I walked out with the change I walked up to my car finance dept those days used to member the straight red you're buying a moniker get a rusty put him in a rain barrel get a rusty well look at him but I was smart then I
