Retailers are turning to virtual storefronts this holiday season
"Shopping is big part of the holiday season. We go downtown or to a packed mall browse the store windows smell. The chestnuts roasting in the street. The pandemic has obviously changed all this but some retailers like gap ted baker and ralph. Lauren are trying to deliver that experience to our computers. I just clicked her. A virtual tour of ralph lauren's beverly hills store at the entrance. There's an archway decorated with christmas garlands and a marble fountain with mannequins posed in front of it. I think that that this dude is supposed to be riding a horse or something and there is a saddle next to him. Yeah a saddle. Part of the ranting. I guess. I don't think that it's for sale. And i tried to click on it. But now i ended up in another somewhere else. I don't know where i am. Now let me go back. Oh god okay. I talked about the virtual storefront experience with joe toro a professor at the university of pennsylvania and author of the book. The aisles have is the thing that's weird about it. One is that there's no one else in the store and two. There's no sales people so it's essentially a store after the rest of the world has been destroyed. And when you click on a particular marker next to the goods you see the price of the goods you can actually purchase it. We've seen the companies that make these virtual stores sell themselves during the pandemic as a way to get people in store despite the lockdown Do you think brands are hoping this will drive sales or is it. Just more of a pr move well everything. They're hoping we'll drive sales. I think what it is is an attempt to use the architecture that they have. The stores are brands. The physical architecture says something about store the idea that when you walk into a ralph lauren. Store it's not macy's that's the kind of idea they want to depict find interesting. Is that retailers. Were launching these virtual storefronts even before the pandemic which to me indicates that they think people will want to use them during normal times. Why do you think. Shoppers would go to a virtual store if they could go to one in person because it's easier sometimes because people have gotten used to the idea. The habit of shopping online and because those stores wanna differentiate themselves from amazon. If you can actually walk into ralph lauren. In a way that makes you feel good about what you're doing instead of going on to amazon and just going through a regular kind of standard catalog. Maybe would find more interesting. I mean occurs to me that stores are not always accessible or comfortable for everyone. And don't forget that. If you live in new york los angeles there are stores for just about every brand and so what they're doing is reporting the expensive architecture and branding that they created for these flagship stores in big cities and allowing people all over the country and even the world to go into them. So you've written about. How retailers are remarkably good at tracking us in store figuring out our preferences what we might wanna by using cameras and smartphone apps and gps's how might the data collection process look different in virtual storefront. Well the great thing about that. From the standpoint of the retailer is they can actually follow. Your is particularly if using goggles right. They know what you're looking at. They know where you've gone it has the counterpart of walking through the store. So they can actually see. Have you passed the shoe aisle while maybe if we give you a virtual coupon you'll go back to the shoe while they're that level of lineal activity that they can follow and they can see what you're interested in which is partly possible to do of course on a regular website but in terms of the movement across the store and maybe the the trying on of things and putting them back and all that eventually you'll be able to see in this kind of world That's gonna be useful for Stores to know also where you start when you go to a website you pretty well have search for a particular good and then you put it down or you purchase it when you walk into a store. You may wonder you know. If it's a virtual store the same thing and companies will be really interested in how people wander. That's one of the major issues of creating stores organizing stores figuring out how to get people to buy things. Where do you place your goods based upon how people wonder do you think there's any additional data a retailer might be able to get if you're shopping in its virtual store rather than its in-person store will say say what you look for is one thing if the voice becomes part of it for example if they include a virtual sales people who talk to you the way customers talked to the virtual sales people could become another important piece of data what companies infer from the way you speak and even the literal voice tones that you speak with can tell them things about you. Joe torre wrote the book. The aisles have is
"los" Discussed on Los Compas Lounge: a PSA for Brown Men
"We are your host. This is how we came here. My name is real Vin and this is a podcast about Brown men talking about issues that matter to you. We talk about things that we don't usually talk about in home and communities were just three regular Compass sharing our experiences to inspire positive change. Compa pull up a seat. We have one ready for you. Welcome back to Los compas Lowndes and we have yet another topic. It's almost it's interesting. The the last the last topic was brown men in the ITP and you know, sometimes you got you got to just get away from that screen, you know, and you gotta get away from just everything that's going on, you know going on in the neighborhood man, and and I know off for for the school psaki, you know, one big one way that we do it is by just going out into nature man. It's a way to disconnect and Thursday at least for me to recharge and reconnect, you know, so but one thing that I always see, you know that I that I always observe is that I'm usually the only Chicano out them, you know, usually the only brown man out out there in nature, you know, whether whether it's going to ston a you know, a little four hour hike or going camping, you know, yep. Going for the Deep ones like, you know going, you know going into the national parks and everything. It seems like I'm usually the only brown person there or you know, the the small brown community that I go with, you know home and that's always hurt me, you know, and I don't know if about you guys if you noticed that or you know, if you even you know, if you know, but that's a good what do you guys think about? Yeah, that's a good way to look at this stuff. It's like very interesting kind of twist our topic on the outdoors experience for for all people, right? And then sometimes you don't think about it. But but yeah, that's something we can dig into in terms of like why are there so few of us, you know, maybe maybe there's a secret place that we're not aware of and we're not invited but but you know, I certainly like to think that the outdoors experience is open to all people regardless of your shade of Cutler, but that's that's certainly something that I've experienced and I've looked at as well and it's funny how you said, you know, we lost one passes all about connecting. But sometimes we need to disconnect to connect right, you know connecting in a different format. So I think that's really awesome. So for me for sure getting out there, it's beautiful. I think blogging I haven't done it in a while and especially during this pandemic, you know, there's no way we're getting out there with the kids. But you know, I think about hiking or I think about the outdoors as just an odd been space and opportunity to reconnect with nature, right or reconnect with Earth. What what is out there for us and what can we take advantage as individuals and as fathers and husbands and family men to get out there with our kids and expose them to all the beauty that nature has to offer. So when I think about that I think about it long terms of an opportunity to get out and opportunity to disconnect an opportunity to expose my children to something very beautiful, you know, whether it's the mountains the beaches or off. Or any other outdoor activity when I really like when I go up there is there's no even if you want to use your phone sometimes I mean, you can't change it. So nobody's going to interrupt you, you know, like there's this this place. I like to go camping and it's like it's in a canyon, you know, so you're surrounded by mountains and there's no way that you could call anybody. You know, you're just you're just strep right there. But I mean actually right now as I'm saying that I was able to hack the system one time when how long in there because my car has OnStar, you know, and I started that satellite and then I remember when time just just to see if I could do it, you know, I was actually able to make a call from from my OnStar in my truck, you know, but other than that when I take like my kids and then all of a sudden they're they're phone stopped stopped working wage. You know that my phone. Yep, that's how it is. You know, I mean, it's like well we'll go deep into the I like going like deep into where where it's like deep in the mountains, you know, cuz I was going to say that like I've noticed right now. Okay. I'm thinking of this one place in particular in Azusa where there's a like a creek and I do notice that there's a lot of a lot of us are a lot of Latinos right there, you know along the creek in the other example, you know, like they go right there and and you know, take their food and right there, you know, and that's a big choice because we were kids. I remember my uncle used to take us to the radio was called to say that I remember to somebody real little too will take your Hibachi Little Grill and then and it's funny really, we would my my father and my uncles and they will get the six packs back.

"How we came here. My name is real Vin and this is a podcast about Brown men talking about issues that matter to you. We talk about things that we don't usually talk about in home and communities were just three regular Compass sharing our experiences to inspire positive change. Compa pull up a seat. We have one ready for you. Welcome back to Los compas Lowndes and we have yet another topic. It's almost it's interesting. The the last the last topic was brown men in the ITP and you know, sometimes you got you got to just get away from that screen, you know, and you gotta get away from just everything that's going on, you know going on in the neighborhood man, and and I know off for for the school psaki, you know, one big one way that we do it is by just going out into nature man. It's a way to disconnect and Thursday at least for me to recharge and reconnect, you know, so but one thing that I always see, you know that I that I always observe is that I'm usually the only Chicano out them, you know, usually the only brown man out out there in nature, you know, whether whether it's going to ston a you know, a little four hour hike or going camping, you know, yep. Going for the Deep ones like, you know going, you know going into the national parks and everything. It seems like I'm usually the only brown person there or you know, the the small brown community that I go with, you know home and that's always hurt me, you know, and I don't know if about you guys if you noticed that or you know, if you even you know, if you know, but that's a good what do you guys think about? Yeah, that's a good way to look at this stuff. It's like very interesting kind of twist our topic on the outdoors experience for for all people, right? And then sometimes you don't think about it. But but yeah, that's something we can dig into in terms of like why are there so few of us, you know, maybe maybe there's a secret place that we're not aware of and we're not invited but but you know, I certainly like to think that the outdoors experience is open to all people regardless of your shade of Cutler, but that's that's certainly something that I've experienced and I've looked at as well and it's funny how you said, you know, we lost one passes all about connecting. But sometimes we need to disconnect to connect right, you know connecting in a different format. So I think that's really awesome. So for me for sure getting out there, it's beautiful. I think blogging I haven't done it in a while and especially during this pandemic, you know, there's no way we're getting out there with the kids..

We have one ready for you. So during the last episode we talked about. This you're being Brown and depend emack specifically the covid-19 pandemic. And in this episode we're going to talk about a different pandemic pandemic that's been going on since Columbus first stepped on to the shores of a little island called nice Panola. We're talking about systemic racism. We're talking about black lives matter and how it affects Brown men. You know, it's very interesting that you look at it this way because it is, you know, the historical movement in the making and it's been dead. It's gone up and down up down you even say globally, you know of all press people but you know here we are black lives matter for damn sure one of the things that I remember going to school and college has really affected me because you know, I went to history and look at historical roots and whatnot about these social race or institutional racism and it was always talk about black and white black white and black and not to diminish from black and white but racism is very complex. You know, it's a it's more than just black and white. It's brown. It's red. It's it's green. It's it's it's off all of those different colors and I think as brown men, we need to look at it that way as well and embrace these kinds of women's, you know be out in Israel and Iraq and just want to make sure that we talked about or at least explore that systemic racism is it's not just about black and white wage. It's it's multicolor. It's about power..

Remember on the second Super Tuesday where do to corona virus concerns Joe Biden cancelled rally like in Ohio and yet in any way. Trump accused Biden of not really wanting to have the rally anyway because rallies aren't really biden strong suit and I remember thinking fine true. So what wouldn't it be great if all our politicians stopped having rallies who wants to rally anyway. Why do political candidates need to do that? Just run the country. I don't want Joe Biden to have to go anywhere. Just stay tanned rested and ready in your Hypo allergenic bubble. I like how Biden's been sweeping states. He didn't even visit vote by mail. Us Amazon.

Let's say the underlying problem. I'm kind of hoping he'll say the devil but he doesn't quite not at first. It's going to sound very general. It's a lack of civic literacy and Civic Responsibility d from the ground up but I think what we've seen in America being country that we've so proudly said with the best country in the world is strongest prosperous innovative. That's allowed so many of us to say. Oh Oh and thus I don't have to pay attention the moment the people stop paying attention. That's where you have lobbyists and interest groups and foreign governments saying. Oh well we're GONNA pay attention you know. And lobbyists is an interest groups. They get hurt every single day. And that's a big imbalance that causes a lot of where we are as a country today. And what are people distracted by their habits and their habits are what can I do for immediate gratification because civic participation is not about immediate gratification. You do get immediate gratification from Netflix devil materialism listen. I'll take it so. Have you seen in your work. A shift from one mood to another mood. One era to another era when when feeling to another feeling there has been a shift And I feel like almost anyone on the street you can ask what that shift is.

So it's like is that too much and I see where they could be coming from. Where when the whole system is so corrupt what made her plan more corrupt? And there's a lot of talk now in La that apparently this always always gets exaggerated among parents top. Private schools didn't do very well with early action and early decision this year at the Ivy League colleges and there's been some talk that the Ivy League colleges want to teach a lesson to these. La Rich people. Not that. I think it's going to affect everything in the ultimate decisions at the end but are kind of saying we are not just going to close on your bullshit anymore. We're GONNA keep an eye on you all the way through before we give any admissions. I just think it got the attention of the admissions missions. Offices of what coaches were doing and it just showed how easily the system was manipulated.

"Jubal Flavor town within reachable. Work good is Geez without the beaches will be real. It's just pitched jelly and cheese. He's that is pressed into tiny bitty square. What do you P to do do when it comes to sleeplessness and worry as a parent of teens well end of the year comes not just the holidays but college application season? Those you see ones are do Thanksgiving weekend then comes Christmas then comes January the first month of Erie waiting where there's lots of time to ruminate and you get the queasy feeling as a parent that you've done everything wrong. Perhaps not as wrong as felicity Huffman but still wrong to commiserate great spoke with my friend Caitlin Flanagan about her recent brilliant piece they had it coming in the Atlantic monthly. I remember I still in this horrible habit of waking up. I'm just looking at twitter. which is just an addictive thing to do? And I should break brisket your secrets I still do it and so I kind of woke up and I just go to the most tweeted out stories and it just seemed like felicity Huffman arrested. FBI Cheating Sat. And I fell asleep. It was so overwhelming it it was just like. I maybe had an aneurysm. It was just so that the FBI had taken beloved celebrity Felicity Huffman because she had somehow paid to cheat on her daughters sat. It was like if you wrote a really bad bald on the head novel. That would be like a number one bestseller about celebs. La and what ultimately would bring her down would be the FBI that would be just ridiculous scene and everybody said. Are you going to write about it and analyzing whenever there's often been where people like. This is the perfect story for you. That's why I'm not going to write it. And then I realized. Oh they're right. I should because before becoming a writer twenty-five years ago I tried it a very fancy prep school in La Harvard Westlake. And then I was a college counselor there and when you were a teacher to teach school like that is a dream dream. Come true because the kids. They've done more of the homework than you did. They know that minor characters that you kind of just glossed over and you see come in. Can't write it all in the beginning of the year Macbeth. Macbeth is weird by the end. Macbeth is ambitious but in the college. Counseling Office. I really saw that these parents it just consume home them on every level. The idea that all of a sudden my time as the person filling this child with values ideas traditions additions. It's ending there's that and then there's this whole other insane level that if your child doesn't get into a certain kind leaned of college which every possible you know the. US Bureau of Economic Research. Does this every single year. There's no economic benefit. God knows there's not the happiness benefit because I have known some real depressive that went to some very fancy college it and all that gets mega jacked up with this idea of America right now being this society where the one percent is really the half percent is really the quarter percent. Where there's just this mega well? That's developing I am convinced convinced out of these private schools and the elite colleges. We're no longer seeing the production of a leadership class. Or even I think we're seeing the beginning of a ruling class. These parents at these top prep schools. They would be so rich. They wouldn't be in these mansions. It wouldn't be driving in these cars if they didn't know how to be aggressive. Never take no for an answer. One person says no you keep going to someone else and someone else in someone else and so instead of doing anything having to do with education in the least basically like you're in a Harem filleted ing these monsters to keep them. Happy happy to get them things that you didn't get an opportunity to have what went wrong with these schools because they weren't always horrible like as recently as nineteen sixty nine. There was this credo of the independent schools. It said it would be not a sin but it would be a terrible thing if all we were doing was taking in strong kids and making them stronger privileged kids and making them more privilege that price of tuition every child must know is dead of service to the nation and and what happened is the nineteen eighties and these horrible parents. They're all came of age in the eighties. Greed is good. You WanNA flashy car you WANNA flashy degree. You're working on Wall Street. You're cheating the country you're causing economy to collapse. Not once but twice and then you would see these colleges they are. I don't know if we're allowed to say horse anymore. In bad way these colleges. They'll do anything for money and Harvard. Yale do it like do you know what. The Z list is at Harvard. No every year there are families are so wealthy but the kid is so marginal the college. I want to take them so one of the reasons that they'll really bring down the GPA A.. And the test scores are so it's senior year. You've applied to Harvard. You did not get into Harvard. You can send your deposit to whatever other school considered a lesser schools at Trinity College or whatever and then the parents start working with Harvard. Harvard says well your in your child could actually be admitted for a year from now so we don't have to account for his grades and scores ever because he's not in the pool. Well that's been this year and he's not going to be in the next year they are seventy percent white fifty percent alumni. It used to be quite secret and now it's is quite known if you have a kid and private high school who's going to Harvard taking a year off. They're almost certainly Z list. It it makes me sad for all the either middle class or lower who are just working really hard on their. Sat's and volunteering like that's going to you know that they're in the same pool as others. My business in life one of my job is to constantly explain to these kids who all different through podcasting if Today but through my writing that this is it profoundly corrupt system. It bows to money before all other things and every single thing they try to do to make it look like. It's not a profoundly corrupt system as ally suggesting to like Ernest High School kid of America. That if you do everything right you have a chance to Yale. No you don't and some of the cruelty is I think both children particularly younger one. WHO's male? I was more aware I I love just going to say I love head of act like we've been talking for fifty minutes about millions of kids and you're like we'll both children especially the younger one like it back to Mike when you envelopes come in Harvard Yale Stanford there came Mrs from all of these goals to say just comment apply it. Neither of my kids played a sport. You know it's like what is crew when what's like on the crew of what there was no Lacrosse in Van Nuys. Israeli land long running from the the grass is that kind of sparkling water. But they're inviting all these kids too long so that those numbers come in love. The application staffer just loves the fact that they don't even publish the numbers because it's so disillusioning but everyone knows it's three percent right three percent when you're letting in three percent on some of those are the alumnis children and some are the children of the super wealthy and some are these athletes. God knows we gotTa have these raping swimmers on campus at all raping swimmer Ru. It's not a fair game right and also the thing with the testing extra your listeners. In American with Disabilities Act Act has very correctly always said some children have serious learning disabilities and they need extra time to take these tests. That's the nature the profoundly dyslexic kid. Of course the college should know that. So they'll put a little asterisk next to it so the no it in the context of this disability will will Americans for disabilities got involved a second time and said No. That's wrong to stigmatize disabled person. So we're going to take off that Asterisk asterisks so the college will never know if you took it over two days over.

Even though I don't consider the fast I see I see uh-huh every fasting completely asking just as it might God you. How will we ninety four so I know what it's like it's funny? We have completely different body responses to it. I my response shutdown. He wants to lay on the couch with his arms over his chest. Sir I have. I'm like it's four in the morning goal doping yet. I need to go for a run. I have so energy. I've already been running canyon I've already walked enlargement. I'm going to go on a huge web later. I get enormous energy from fasting. Wow so my ancestors as I say to Michael. We're the ones that got up and got the rabbits. Yeah in the morning opera. His ancestors just thought. I guess it's time for I live to be done. Can't stash the food settle into the living room and Julia launches into her holiday. Post mortem it was like Barkan Dalia. It was like there were nights right eating so much that I get up in vomit because of just like what is it Rome in the the last days of Rome like I have eaten so much we can we just because there was great food around the house it was like yeah and also I'm traveling and I can eat what I wander winebrenner flying me first class per flying in the bottle so did this started with it because I thought I feel really uncomfortable in my body but I don't want to go on a diet I made all down soon. I'M NOT GONNA be on a diet and then I thought based on all the signs I know and everything I've read and that we've done together. What if I just had a protocol like a religion because there's also comes from being my friends and my Muslim family in Chicago? I don't know if that I opted out so I did Ramadan with them and everything I really like. It's a religion some religious fast. What if my personal philosophy of life slash religion is two times a year? I do a five to seven. They fast otherwise. I eat whatever I wanted any time except for one day we have a one day a week fast in between so it and then otherwise. Don't think about it. And then whatever weight I land on. That's my life like it's really and it's also because my blood sugar's really high so I don't want to be diabetic so I'm trying to avoid that too but without restricting myself and being able to drink as much as I want and have dessert and also little John's toffee. Yeah yeah I know like. It's very contradictory. I'm saying all the things I vowed I'd never say to anyone. And that's because of the magic of Hugh You have that effect act on sleep on. I think walking up cheeses and I am aborted meal that we're not gonNA sorry hilarious. It's even better because we're just so energized food. That is the in another room so when you think of like what your last meal would be. Oh yes which I often think. Okay so what is is your. What's your last meal your death row use murdered? Hopefully not your husband. No you had to be unfair. It has to be wrong okay. Why why you've while you're dying okay? Okay has to be an unfair death. Okay how so and the reason I say that is if you really did kill the people. I think you should be thinking how this is Justin right that you should die. Maybe you shouldn't have anything before. Are you talking my west meal is it's completely wrong but I can't control anything. I'm about to die okay. So you've been accused of something something that's wrong but I can't can't change it. Yeah and somebody's willing to give me anything. Okay probably would have a really fatty steak. Done rare grilled a rare. I would have my family recipe of potatoes romanoff which is potatoes with cream cheese and sour cream and tons of cheddar cheese and onions. And it's very good. I would have Brussels sprouts and Bacon. I would have actually like vegetables. I would have some grilled vegetables really. Yeah I don't I wouldn't wanNA feel feel sick going into the chamber. You don't want to vomit on yourself as you're getting the injection. So adding SUISA adding Brussel sprouts with Bacon. No but that's so good to me. I could have that completely. But and then I'd have bread pudding with caramel sauce and and whip cream that does sound any and a lot of red wine and a lot of red wine. Yeah I mean I would eat all those things anyway in Mike Strange Kito not quite bread diet but always buy gas. Then I'm constantly buying everybody else on my household because I famously don't eat bread. I feel that if I'm standing in the kitchen and tear it off with just like it and then just the white part and just eat the cross slathered in butter 'cause because the butter that just like out so all my God so I probably would go like a straight pasta situation because the state that you'd discuss until he was being good yet because it's a total atkins like they say. Eat Steak but I do. Just love steak. I love steak in red wine in fact in January when I don't drink plus the other thing my January. Don't drink which I've done. It used to be land. Now it's January I won't even have steak because to me if you can't have red wine with steak shouldn't even have steak. What's the point rather certain foods that if you don't have eight if you can't have a Margarita with chips and Guacamole? I don't see why you have any chips and Guacamole you. How bipolar am in this morning at Runyon Canyon and just now? I'm listening to the PODCAST. Food psychology with Lisa Harrison. which is the anti diet food? podcast asked that completely turned me on to health at every size. This is all bullshit. The whole Wait cycling industry. I love that term. Like weight watches all that. They're just they know that you're going to gain it back and they're going to have you back like the whole and the way hold the sciences such crap and that the whole idea that people who are heavier are necessarily less healthy than other people has a lot of problems with it. So I'm listening to that while I'm going around on my fast. Until how long have you been doing this over January. Well I just moved it to January. I did it for lent my whole life. I used to huma chocolate for lent before I could drink and then every year that it was lent even when I stop believing in God and was definitely not a Catholic on fat Tuesday. I I would have a lot to drink and then Ash Wednesday which if I did go to mass. It was on Ash Wednesday because I felt like that was the only day the character told the truth from ashes. You came to to ashes. You shall return. They put the APP on your forehead And that's Ash. Wednesday starts length. So it's about forty days and then I gave a chocolate the and Y.. An alcohol and then my friend Bob Bloomer who does sober January's got me into the sober January and it's less it's only thirty days. Not Forty days. What I like about it is that it proves that? I don't have a problem.

"Sodastream the sound of sober January. Thank God I have my metaphorical Gin and tonic. I wonderful friend to humorist Henry. Alfred of the New York Times James The New Yorker Vanity Fair is latest book and then we test. Hello Henry Alford. Hello Sandra how are you. I'm fine thank you so I'm speaking with my friend. Henry Elfriede I of course in Los Angeles in Pasadena in my living room truth be told. And where are you sitting right now Henry Henry Alfred. I'm sitting in the living room of my terribly. QUAINT Greenwich Village apartment. It is Super Queens. Okay so even though this podcast was called sleepless in Los Angeles and there you are awake in Manhattan. There's a connection I mean Los Angeles is a state of being while Manhattan is what is it. Well your maybe a state of anxiety as much as much as a state of being New York is the big apple while as my musician. Nations ex-husband used to say Los Angeles is receding carrot. So sad but true. I should note that we're talking on on January first New Year's Day like well behaved people it is eleven. Am My time two PM Yours. You got a little more wiggle room on that one. Now ask any Alfred Alfred. How was your New Year's Eve? It was super anti-climactic because we had actually been out past midnight the the two evenings prior yeah go figure I mean for a person over fifty. That's like the the a marathon of festivity so we just we played real low key last night so we you know I've heard the people of our age of the go-to Madonna Concert. And because Madonna doesn't go onto like twelve thirty in the morning lawsuits are happening actual losses. Have you heard uh I heard that the woman in Florida who sued and then I also heard that madge is doing on audience interaction and and is apparently not terribly polite or or smooth with any sort of hurting people's feelings in the audience did did you say mad madge. Yes is what my my people call her. As I'd like to say not only are we born two days. Apart you are February thirteenth. I eh eleven nine hundred sixty two. I don't mind saying Aquarians. Both will always be your elder. No matter what just as a Madonna madge will always be four years older than me though. I will always be seventy five pounds heavier so the topic at hand. This fine January first is his new year's resolutions January being as I like to the month of enlightened self loathing If you go into the history of it you could say the Babylonians did the Romans did it. The Christians did but further now supposedly you don't during the Great Depression. A quarter of American adults for New Year's resolutions whereas come to the turn of the century about half of all American adults formed and half will fail. So it's kind of a very first world problem. If you Wilson like we're peasants saying we hope on January first. The Tar will give us more money. We got to berate ourselves from having ingested too many things in first world way I think so how about you. Where do you stand on this issue of New Year's resolutions? Where do you stand on it? Personal one of my resolutions for this here is super first world. And that is that I would like to be calmer in the face of technological mishap uh-huh which is to say. I know that those those Nablus the automatic sinks in public bathrooms. I know that the the the those are supposed to make my life easier so I'm just going to relax into that noble intention rather than can focus on the highly irritating actuality which is that they they seem to single me out and I cannot activate the sings so you mean there. You'RE GONNA fluttering karate chops at Nocera to motion and you. You just can't do it precisely now I it could be. I could be doing some kind of like Origami Situation with the hand the fluttering and the and nothing so then you you sort of run over to the edge of the bathroom and you look to see if their paper towels and there aren't and then you run back it. Just it's a weird little dance chance. Well I think just you don't maybe if I'm just armchair quarterbacking here from the other end of the country I think the Origami fluttering thing thing. That's what I mean. I think maybe a standard calmly willing it to happen. You know instead of doing the stabbing thing. The I'm just picturing Hugh Henry through your Ram Right. The Graham and I think it's too much I think you just stand there calmly year. BRING ME THE WALK TO A. Ah Yeah you think the sink can smell fear especially in Chile your affair and you may have a point. Yeah maybe just like a Jab. Bob Knocking an uppercut to the to the sink nozzle okay. I'm going to turn now Henry. No that's totally wrong. I think you should just stand very still relaxed. The buttocks and like Charlton Heston as Moses. Just will surely. The titans factor is not aiding the process.
