Andy Tell me about this Bat Mitzvah Bat Mitzvah and the Bible are when a Jewish young boy or girl get to the age of either in some customs. Twelve or thirteen boys is always thirteen. Some girls do at twelve or thirteen. And it's sort of the coming of age where on a very the the really heavy serious definition of it that I don't enjoy is it's where the kids Sins become their own and not of their parents. That's that's the scary. My version is it's just where a child becomes an adult and then translate this Hebrew. Yeah I don't know what daughter a you are now. A daughter bought is daughter. Bar is son of Mitzvah which is doing good deeds so you are now responsible for doing a Mitzvah. Means the good indeed. You do yours at time in their life when they have to sort of step up to a little more family response is a little more responsibility and a little more our responsibility in the community little more responsibility in the family and in its purest form. It's just when a child gets called to the Torah in synagogue and then they do a little little A little maybe the lunch and after or just maybe a little alcohol and cake and Soda but what it's turned into is basically an excuse as for giant parties They look insane. They look fun especially in New York and L. A. where people aren't saying They make these gigantic eight parties right and so David Spade was here talking about his Jewish friend Adam Sandler and his daughter who was going to have about Mitzvah and and David Spade described what it's like when you're Adam Sandler and you throw a Bar Mitzvah. Who Do you get to sing at at a Bar Mitzvah Mitzvah Adam Sandler? Obviously Adam Levine. And Maroon five right. That's a little bit of him. Describing what sounds like the greatest bump Mitzvah in the history of Los Tantalus say you so adam. Levine performed at Adam sandlers daughters but Mitzvah Mitzvah. Yeah and you were there. That must have been a very cool but Nigga house great got my tickets on Stubhub scalpels. It was worth it. I went there sandler heads to beautiful young daughters and a one was having her big shindig their friends with my daughter too so we all went but I saw a couple months before. I said you're GONNA have a LO- whole thing is gonna be crazy. 'cause I've heard you know Sandler's rich by the way look it it up and And they said I said you know they had these crazy parties and she goes well. It's just going to be a theme of space and then there's going to be like sparkles on the ceiling on. Let's nice finally like a normal party like like I had a kid so I go there. Oh was I wrong. It's literally like Jeff Bezos. Giving rocket rides rides Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. The lunar landing there on Musk jetpack. It was was so beyond crazy. Eighteen rooms like well. What's the thinking? Why would it not be crazy? It was so fun so bananas are great. Time and then and I think Oh. Adam Levine on top of everything else all these girls. Can you picture who likes that. They went crazy crazy and he came out jams tunes. Everyone had fun. That's very cool. And you said your daughter was air. How old is Harper? Now she's eleven. Wow that's amazing. Yeah I saw a picture of you with her. She's I can't believe they just they She's been great. Oh there she is look at a rate that was there that was from in the daytime and then we went to the Shindig at night. Well it was a daytime and nighttime thing yeah. She got McDonald's because she was behaving now mayor. You recently recently went to six flags magic mountain. I did you have a nice time. I had a great time. I I I helped host about six six young Women Sixteen Age Girls Magic Mountain Fancy feet dance. School had a performance there and then I walked around Magic Mountain with with get paid. If you say fancy feet. I hope so another another mom and I think there were six kids and they went on every roller coaster. There was to go on and I sat held bags and talking locker. I was walking locker. Sounds like you would David spade. Have something in common. I it went right up to him and said I the entire day there. Yeah exactly right into we talked about it Buxton. Yeah Yeah David Spade just never disappoint points when he comes here and he always has a couple of stories and he tells us stories and they're great and he tells a story about taking his eleven year old daughter to Magic Mountain and his impressions impressions magic around and see everything go on rides so take a listen to the brilliant David Spade but we did go to magic mountain six flags. It's called six flags magic mountain and we don't need the six flags part. I'm going to tell them right now from a marketing standpoint because six flags boring magic mountain is the hook like six flags is nowhere flag six out of ten now just six. I don't even understand so magic mountain. That's what it is harper wants to go there and I go. Let's do it and I'm a little scared to go. But by the way spoiler alert more mountain and magic agic. I have to say it's not even fifty fifty and ninety nine percent mountain. Tiny bit of magic. Almost you don't see it was cheese on fast. It's a magic mountain. Stop No more mountain so I go there and my little spin legs it. It was traumatic because it's on amount. They say the title. I didn't think on a mountain rides on top of the mountain. So everyone's in Hell Mountain. I go there. I'm like huffing and puffing and then Harper's like let's go on these twelve rides harper. Let's just look around. Do we have to go on rides wherever you so much fun just talking. That didn't work so and the riots aren't even like fun little rides. I it's a fun little roller coaster. Great I mean it's like a car crash these rights. Do you know what I mean like. They're you're so ridiculously terrifying scary and it's like this one is called the telephone pole. You go a thousand miles an hour. You hit a wall I did want and I was like this on. The Horn of people are getting out crying calling lawyers and laying the homework. They bring the jaws of life out. I'm out there. That'll be three tickets and stand there and Harper's what what else am I know. This is she and my girl. They went on all the rights. I just sat in the side and I walk them and it wasn't even getting close to the rides anymore. I'm like I think it's right around that Ben. It was fun fact this like our vacation episode. That's where they shot vacation. Oh is that right. The World Anti David Spade is as funny when his stories are not working as he is when they are working right enjoys an he enjoys a story story.

Ellen Mary yes you've a personal friendship with Laura dern I do have a personal friendship with Laura Dern I I've known Laura dern since I worked with David Letterman and Laura dern would come on and be a guest on the show and then we had children around the same time and her daughter Jaya and my daughter. Sara were at preschool together and then they went to elementary school together and middle school together and they have split off. They don't go to high school together. Now but Laura dern has been a friend and it's so exciting to see what's happening with her career career and how it's taken off. She seems like a really incredible human she is she is as she seems and Konya West wore a t shirt with her face on it from blue velvet and that got the attention of her kids ellery and Jaya to the point. Wait where they for for a moment thought their mom was cool. Gave a little streak crave her a little street. cred to the point where Laura than on our show. Oh gave a shout out and take take a listen to this every character. You're playing now by the way I mean going back to blue velvet like I mean Kanye West is wearing you on his shirt like you've played some iconic characters that people relate to that is amazing. Yeah a whole other the reason. Yeah thanks to the amazing designer. Wraps Simmons who paid homage to David David Lynch in his work. But what he didn't know is he actually gave me a tiny bit of credit in my household of teenagers. And I'm really grateful it. Any rapper comes on this show and you want to just hand them a shirt with my face on it. I really appreciate it. Okay if it's really working for me. Every mother should somehow get this opportunity community when their kids are like our name the rappers and I'll I'll send him some shirt. Okay I like it. Who Do your kids? Who are they into well? Rocky I mean in but rocky rocky start expecting a shirt soon. Okay all right you can work on that okay. Good then Kendrick could wear a shirt. You wouldn't be mad of Kendrick. Lamar no I wouldn't be mad. We'll just visit David Lynch on live. I'm not saying there is a slight self-serving aspect to the sure I added nine. It's not yelled at all the way to school a break in it. It sounds horrible to have children. I mean it really does horrible. What do you have to be to be a whole mom? Your Laura Dern so Laura's open for anyone Any rapper who might want to her and you know. WE'RE T shirt with her face on it to help her out as a mom. The way I see is the Konya wearing a t-shirt with Laura dern on it is like like that time at Andy bought some easies from China. Sure seems about right and he got him really cheap corona mbare real because while he's in the room he's he's not paying attention and they're real and they were real easies were they were. They were just. I found a good deal in China. No I don't think so. So you know you wonder why you found a good deal in China. I think they probably had a lot of extras and they were able to slash. The price is to fifty five dollars. Real really real real and you can. They're real by how well they've aged. Yeah alright all right speaking of Andy enough about indie. Now we got one more thing buddy we have so we close it up our room and So yes andy. What are we talking about Andy? Little mushrooms little mushroom so little mushroom as a dancer from China and yet he is now I think eleven years old junkie nine I I think so nine years old. And we've we've been. She brought the easiest for Andy on her first appearance. Yes we booked her when she she was like six and she was just this little half pint and she liked to wear like a suit with vest and for six. You're like Oh my God the screen. Oh can dance. Yeah now she well. She recently won a dance competition. She won the Grand Prize in the dance competition and it was an adult dance competition. And she's a phenomenal. A nominal dancer. And she sorta specializes in like sort of sharp robot-like moves and and so we brought her back. She she did a dance she did a routine for us and then at her request she wanted to teach Andy right how to do the robot and I have to tell you it was a kind of career rally because she stood next to him and they're very basic moves next to him and she would do a little move with their hands and then he would do it and then she would go over to him and forced I his hands to the positions. Oh God I need to go to your DVR. And I'm not a good to start and I don't have a lot of coordination and and she's adorable and I didn't think she would be so strict about would be like a fun little dense thing and I was like okay right sweet. No what was what was particularly sweet about her is how specific she wanted. Certain things to be that you did God and and you my body. He didn't manipulate and hoping being a dad. Yeah even though. It wasn't exactly where you want it to be. You had endless patience for what she wanted to do. Because A. you're super sweet guy and be. It played great for comedy. And she didn't she didn't see I had had no choice as usual. Now you you're going to behave a little. You know you you you played at this point. I'm against a good guy. Really Kev.

We're going to do granted I try to get Kevin to be the guy to tell the story and he's like no don't I wasn't there I wasn't there the talent segment and I did love. Andy's dynamic with our at one point Andy goes we have other guests again was going on. I go on go along and and so we use half of it in the show and then put half of it online. And she's an angel girl she she's always so oh happy upbeat and I just I just And also can we just say how fantastic our translator grace's grace's grace grace grace is absolutely amazing. We keep thinking like oh we should do more with grace and we should hire grace and then we asked you know some important questions in grace's in highschool grace is just terrific.

What's the end game? Show me tell me what what she's looking for. There's other people on the show let's just to get to There's one more thing I know. We've we've talked a lot. There's one more thing I want to get to. Yes displeased this is this is a story near and dear to my heart as as friends who know me like you guys. Do you know that when my daughter Emily is home. We Watch we binge jeopardy jeopardy. Sure pretty is one of Emily Emily. Emily got the brains in the family. What are you GONNA do? She's twenty five. I'm fifty six and she gets more jeopardy interest correct than I do. I tend to get the beer categories. He's in the sports categories of music. She gets together together you yes we could play one. You're a complete. Yeah we could compete. So Andy and I are are are on twitter a lot and he's on twitter a lot more than I am and I'm basically a devotee of Andy's on basically here to amplify Andy's voice and on and on twitter order big mistake that night. We see this story that breaks of this kid who was on jeopardy. I save all the jeopardy's until emily gets home so I didn't see it on TV and we see this kid whose name was was I think dhruv Gar on jeopardy and a college tournament us from Brown University and at the at the final jeopardy he had two thousand dollars and leading an leader had one thousand nine thousand dollars so he mathematically did not have a chance to win so while he may have known the answer to final jeopardy he chose to use the no chance of winning and he chose to use that moment to make his answer what What is we love you? Alex for Alex Trebek's who as they were taping. The episode learned that he had at the beginning. Second round of Chemo for his. I believe pancreatic cancer and Alex Trebek is a legend in every household in America including this and that choked. Alex Trebek's up which I have never seen in. All the talk is so stars blow up on twitter and E tweets it. I re tweeted. Read it when Andy tweets it. The KID DHRUV follows Andy on twitter at which begins a conversation between Andy me and Carl Hogan who works as a senior human interest interest producer. Here and she's not on the show and we'll start talking about it long story. Short and e books. The kid from twitter twelve hours later or fourteen hours later the is from Brown University in Providence Rhode Island to La Right to do our show. And I don't think I can make it tomorrow. I mean I'm in I'm in Providence Rhode Island I go the we'll be seeing you tomorrow. I don't think he understood how this was gonNA take. You understand who you're dealing with you get yourself to t.f green and on and we'll fly you out and ELM is really sweet and Ellen I texted Ellen and said are you aware of this and deliver it and she said I do. I WANNA see him as soon as poss. Bring him to me and so we did. And here's a little clip of his segment on our show. So this episode aired on Monday but when did you actually shoot that so we actually shot it in mid September. It was right after Alex had actually announced publicly that he was going to reenter. Chemotherapy pancreatic cancer right and he had come back actually to the Green Room and talk to all the contestants who were on the tournament and we could really tell them like it was tough for him so when I got up there like obviously yeah. I wasn't GonNa win the game or anything so I was like I could try to figure out the right answer or you know I could do something for this person who might need it right now. That was really sweet. That was really amazing. Emotional everybody urine huge fan. Anyway you've been on the show before I have yes about a year and a half ago I actually want one hundred thousand dollars on the ship. How many days I was on four days then and then two days this time two days this time and so you weren't doing well and like you said you just decided you probably could've come up with the answer answer but instead of doing that because they weren't going to win anyway you decide to do something really thoughtful in suite? That was amazing. So what did you do with a one hundred thousand so I go to Brown on which costs a lot of money so I spent a good amount of it on tuition and another thing I decided to do is I took like twenty friends out to eat and paid for all their meals does and they apparently according to the check out a lot of fun and so that can add up. Yeah you probably didn't think there's GonNa be as much as it was no. I didn't but you know it's all good. Yeah so and then What is the response? been like since you've been on the show it's been crazy so I was The Watch party for this episode with my friends and my mom texted me. She was like you're trending on twitter and I was like okay. Mom like eight tweets as it trending and then she was like no really like check and we love you.

Movies Star Wars Jurassic Park Blue Velvet. One of my personal favorites enlightened a show that I honestly it was supposed to be a trilogy. I wish that it was because it was truly one of the most enlightening things I've ever seen and I'm not just saying that. Welcome to no limits. Laura dern thank you. I'm so happy to view view at you. I'm thrilled to have you here with us and in particular. I'm really curious to get to know a little bit more about your story and also why now you're investing investing companies and thinking as a business woman so we're going to get to that in a minute but let's go back. To the beginning you grew up child actors. Was it always something when you want it You know I watched both my parents One summer the summer I was seven years old working with two of our greatest filmmakers ever scorsese and hitchcock and fell so in love not just with acting as a craft or a job but the specific dynamic and collaboration between a filmmaker and tour and an actor and so for me. That was the thing that I fell in love with and thought that I would love to be part of that conversation. You know how to create empathy around revealing the broken. This and people like that was the conversation. These filmmakers were having and the movies that my parents and their friends were making in the late seventies really showed me what it could be like to be part of storytelling as a job and That's what I fell in love with. How did they feel feel about that? Were they encouraging of pursuing the craft. you know I. My parents divorced and I was living primarily with my mom who was clocking. It more more on On the regular so she was much more reticent I think both she was seeing my passion growing and she was a woman seeing her daughter. prepubertal daughters saying I want to enter a world where through the audition process there will be rejection judgments potential body shaming all kinds of stuff could be thrown at a young girl Or boy for that not matter And not to mention that it can be a dangerous workplace environment so I think she was scared it but she also saw after a couple of years of really dedicating myself to studying That it wasn't going away so she she let me do a little bit of work here and there as long as I remained in school and actively involved with athletics and student the government and all kinds of stuff. I couldn't just sort of be there. Yeah I read that you are. You're swimming you're running. Track your student body president. Oh Oh yeah. She made a she. Mom forced me. She forced me to be very engaged to prove that I was willing to have the sacrifice of having this other passion as opposed to it being a way out of not having to go to school. Did you like those things where you actually enjoying them. Where you kind of just checking off a box to make your mom happy? I love swimming so I you know I did of all the team sports I I did. I did really care about swimming and I was into it and I love dance. I loved all things you know theater and I loved student government. You know have a really big mouth. You're going to change they platform. Do you remember getting the teachers paid and getting a real endowment for them and starting to learn about how little all teachers were paid like. That was a big focus. Here we were in a very privileged Upper Echelon private school in Los Angeles and our teachers weren't making hardly anything and looking at insurance for teachers in this country and that was a big turning point for me starting to understand and which is a narrative we can continue as we talk about investing even To understand not just your experience but the experience variance of everyone else serving this moment for you and how they are treated how they are honored And I think my parents taught me that in in terms of looking around at a film set Makes a move. Yes you know and as a child on movies I I when I started the script supervisor was the only other female on the set my makeup and hair was done by men. It was all men. uh-huh other than maybe one or two other actresses and and like. I said the script supervisor so you know I. I wasn't noticing that it was pointed out to me. Dan was a great way to be educated. On the Scorsese project. Your mom starred in that film. You're an extra I read. And you've got nineteen ice cream cones cones. Yes I I don't remember it. As as as my mom and Scorsese who has been so loving and generous to me About about that that memory saying that. Yeah after these many takes and having to eat that many ice cream cones and not getting sick. He told my mom in front of me that I was going to be an actress and I used that to my to my for quite a number of years. I think it's interesting though. I've read a lot about your background and your experience and there are definitely sort of pitfalls. I guess that young actors tend to fall into and for for whatever reason. You didn't go down that path. I mean you know we all go down the path of of identity and self carer self loathing insecurities doubts. So I I like everyone have had to learn how to be kind to myself and a champion of myself and getting Out of stigmas that culturally. I learned about what it is to be a female and what is my place and not to be outspoken. Outspoken or not ladylike or Comfortable with the word ambitious right Turning Point I think now I think i. I think it's been a long journey. You know I was raised around deep deep feminist activists so I learned at an early age that I should use my voice and educate myself. That was clearer. Her and I think I've always had that For better for worse trying to use one's platform as a human being on the planet not as an actress per say but growing into the awareness that you know women supporting supporting each other to be leaders to run businesses with consideration and empathy to run for Congress to make a difference about the workplace environment. Like all all of those awareness is in terms of how it's affected my own life and hopefully others has been really the last five years of my life What do you think it is in these last five years? Do you think it's because sometimes I think about out feeling in in many ways similar and I do think that part of it is where I am in my career but also part of it is where the world is now and suddenly various things that used to seem like they would always be set in stone. I'm thinking about me too we had Jodi Kantor and Megan twohey the journalists at the New York Times on the program no limits as well saying there was a major seachange after they started. Writing articles does and the reaction to those articles about Harvey. Weinstein was different than the reaction than you've seen in any other case. I think that when extraordinary journalists like they are Allow the narrative to be the focus. US that says one voice may be terrified to be the one that stands up but when that one voice does many many the voice will follow and that message being sent out has been a paradigm shift in culture everywhere in in industry for for men and women For the fight for representation for the fight for respect act. That is a massive change. Because what we've learned and I don't think it's just that case per se but current governments Everywhere we look what has shifted is the bullies of become so glaring and their methods. It's so glaring that we realize we're all experiencing it so no longer are the days of. You're the only one that's being treated treated like this. Because you're less I've isolated you and targeted you. 'cause you're the week when I'm going to do this too. And if you play your cards right you're going to get these benefits. It's like when you you hear someone talking like that you immediately know. That's a bully. And there are a hundred of us who've been given this rhetoric trek by this person. Right is politician right. This leader this. You know movie producer whatever it is And that's amazing that there's a generation generation of young girls and boys who are being raised. Understand that this is not an isolated circumstance. You're you're you're you're in normalized behavior when a bully is targeting you And you have to use your voice to stop them because you actually have more power than they do. That's what's the seachange I believe and I do think we can change government and methodology and business and and the environment with that awareness. I mean as we're seeing the news because suddenly whistle blower is a word in headlines. More and more on. That's really exciting you wanted to be. Did you want to be a journalist because when I was looking at Ucla and you originally went there. I think to study psychology journalism. Wow you guys researching like that was a while ago. Yeah is that something that that you really strongly believe that you might be some day I don't know that I was studying it to become a journalist. It was is deep admiration for voice and getting the truth out so I was interested in the truth through acting through psychology and who new journalism through social justice that was my interest like how do we become transparent. How do we push for Truth and and live? Authentic antic lives through meditation spiritual practice. Whatever it was that seemed to be what I was seeking but I have the most I respect for journalists and the truth that they have given us And I am not only the daughter of an actor but the daughter of an actor who when I was twelve started her. Now you know thirty plus year path To tell the true story of the life of Martha Mitchell and she became very close to Helen. Thomas who I got to know and be around a lot as a child and be in DC a a bit because of it and so I learned a luxurious amount about The Truth and and how people's voices and women's voices over time in history have been shut out or squashed To kind of keep keep ally going and that that was a big theme in my childhood in terms of watching her research more and more deeply. When you are searching for that Truth Truth and character? Do you have a process that you repeat every time or is it kind of a different thing.

It or your favorite podcast APP. I've never been asked that question. I love that question and I think it is different every time I would assume it's as as it is for you when you're investigating instigating and when you're researching every story has its own Paper trail right so we just finished finished little women which will come out this Christmas and you know that investigation of this character was extraordinary. Gary and like no other project I've ever worked on because the answers not only were in the original book but in the original letters in being being in the hometown of the ALCOTT S- being in Concord Massachusetts and meeting relatives and meeting extraordinary historians. Who who told us the true story of the family that inspired that book to hold not An iconic onic idea of this sort of fictionalized archetypes but like the real people so that they can sustain and connect us in Greta Gerwig who was adapting and directing it Made that such a priority for herself so that also inspired me to to dive deeper and I was playing the the matriarch figure of the story and so I wanted to then no it all so that I could inspire my daughter's To you kind of know the family that we were portraying And that is so different than how I would Research any other Character Renata Klein for example I was near someone that you base fat character on. Is there one person. There's a number of people but there are people are they. Are they in Silicon Valley right now. Have you been approached to invest in their company. There may be there may be one in Silicon Valley and there you know there are women all over this country who you know when you look at the numbers in terms of gender parody in the world of finance and in the world of tack it. Yes it's pretty shocking and glaring and so there are women who have had to be the only woman in the room in and even more extraordinarily Disparaging way than even the film industry which is pretty horrify so getting to know those women. I'm and I'm I'm you know. And there are women who were so inspiring in the world of finance in the world of tech in Silicon Valley in the world of publishing who I talked to at length. You were so generous to talk about what it's like to be the only woman in a boardroom of thirteen and how men would listen work to get them to listen and you know how you use wealth or fashion or strength breath or boys club talk to achieve the goal of effecting change in corporate America or affecting effecting change for the good of the planet That's a really interesting conversation to have with female leaders and that taught me a lot about Renata and who she is and how she played the game but then was left with no girlfriends. That's an interesting point so I would imagine. There are a lot of women from Silicon Valley who've started companies who who talk about this on no limits but the loneliness of being at the top because of the presumption from I mean in the case of big little lies other women who feel like they don't have that label and they don't want your shadow shadow to make them feel less so than they cut you down. It's it's back to bullying. You know we do it too. And we have a lot to learn to champion and lift teach other up as women Which I think is a lot of big? Little lies focuses on the the secrets that we don't even share with ourselves ourselves or our best friends about the life we're living I mean is is is a huge theme in the show and what it is to be a friend and a champion to another woman is is really interesting and I think the more women that are given opportunity the more women there are two champion and support and lift another generation of the industry. You're in which WHO's great but for the women who were the first and only one it it It had to be quite brutal. Yes us is there anything that you could save at. You specifically learned about women and their relationships to each other threw big little lies so many things starting with win. You have an experience of working with other women. Men which for many of us was rare when we start right and now it's shifting amazing you know when I'm with Hillary Lori and we're having conversations about the health and beauty care industry Care being word that is used but shouldn't be most most of the time You know we're talking about motherhood we're talking about self care we're engaging in conversation that's a lot larger than the the subject subject at hand and big little lies was the gift of a lifetime because I was with a family where we were. You know onset as activists as MOMS as friends living life together. I mean it's half a year of your life so you're covering all of it while you're also having this amazing experience working together but I think I hope we tried to infuse who's in the storytelling. You know what it is to not be alone anymore when you actually create deep deep authentic truth in your life with with the women you love and in your relationships with your children etc well and something that I I like about it and I. I don't know how intentional this is. I'm assuming that it is relatively intentional. But the idea that you can have these deep relationships with people who aren't identical Nicole to you and I feel like we live in this world right now where everything is about identity and do you match my identity do we. We like all of the identical things and if we don't we can't be friends. We can't even have a respectful conversation with each other but within big little lies you have all of these women from very different backgrounds coming together. Well I love that you bring that up and beautifully pointed wanted out and eloquently pointed out because one of my favorite memories that is when Meryl Streep 'cause the Gods smiled on US showed up up in the world of big little lies Being a hero to all of us one of the things that I loved as she pointed out early on in in reading the new scripts and talking about the for season is how much she loved. The friendship between myself and Reese Witherspoon character as one of the most authentic friendships. She'd seen and because we kind of hate each other but we have sort of amazingly support a friendship and it's it is quite delicious like we hated. We do but we so admire each other and we're forced through the realization that we actually have each other's backs that there is a real deep bond there and that it doesn't have to come from immediate like mindedness and that's a great place to start in building a friendship and again as an American. It's an interesting place to start right. That we don't necessarily have the same value systems but we you can forge a friendship to achieve real conversation and hopefully affect change like we have to get there are we are all going to lose That's not my nature like I am looking for the people who share my point of view and you can go straight there with great rage and passionate about issues that we care about and that matter to us but there's real deep dialogue to be had when you have a different point of view and you can even be mean about it and then start to listen to the other person. That's what my family was like. At least a lot of differing opinions very loudly spoken to one another but at the the end of the day we all love each other when when I would imagine that you get approached all the time to invest in businesses that to some degree people are coming to your Laura dern will you will you put your name on this we give whatever you can afford to give us. Why true botanical? Well you know I will say it's it's a new day because no one did it for a long time and even as female actors we would talk about how the boys would have companies coming to them interesting. Be the face of of or the voice of or invest and. I've talked about recently. That like this is a new conversation. Shen for a lot of women of my generation and Meryl's generation who came up in the arts To to invest first time or money or face or name to something And this is you know it's it's an interesting moment where you can bring your conscience to How you promote and rate you invest and how you Makes a success story for a company things you WANNA see more of in the world old and you know we were all deeply involved a number of us in in the beginning of times up and having a lot of conversation around gender under diversity parody And that's all nice until you start to learn that the companies that you invest in even as a consumer may not have the narrative that you want to stand by in terms of havoc here for the planet have the care for animals. How the cure for human beings being The story that they tell The transparency they have with you know their ingredients. And so what what I love about having this amazing relationship. True botanical is there is no more authentic or transparent and story then I was a consumer that was on a surface level wanting to onset. Have my skin look healthy and look pretty show being big little lies and I found with my makeup artist product called pure radiance oil and and we started using it originally to use the oil to add a Dui khloe skin look to the makeup and it was so beautiful that I stopped wearing foundation and the oil literally became my foundation because it just allowed allowed my skills through onscreen so suddenly to be an actor who felt more honest and transparent by not feeling a ton of makeup on on me and have people say oh your skin looks so good and again just on a surface level it was like well. Wait a minute then I start to learn more about the company learned that it's a female run and lead company learn about the consideration and the consciousness behind behind the company and the research behind the company not only that it works better than the other products but that in fact. They've done their due diligence to research and to really be chemical free and to really care about organic farming and how they're feeding our our bodies and our skin skin and so as a consumer. I fell in love with the whole line and then wrote a love letter to the the company wanted the love letter. Her say basically said I have fallen in love with your products. I WanNa thank you as an environmentalist for making a difference for giving my skin health and beauty and having it work equally beautifully for my at the time thirteen year old daughter To have my son using it so oh as an environmentalist as a parent as an actress as a woman. You know thank you. You're amazing. There's nothing like this and You just want to give you a shout out. That was literally the goal in mind but it then developed an amazing relationship with the company. And you know like Olivia Wilde. Who has invested her time and her heart into this company I I can't think of a more beautiful way to spend my time than want to grow Companies that are female. Run that really. Consider the planet and you know the next generation that just work better That have done their homework in every way and and that they consider not only what it does for us they consider the people who pick and pack our food and our products. They consider how they're treated needed in the process of farming. What they use in the product? I mean that's a level of integrity that you know the woman leader behind this is in deep consideration of and you know it's a slippery slope when you're trying to make a product that works and you want to make money And this narrative sang like actually. It's easier actually. It works better if you do your research. If you get things in place helping the planet Senate and helping other people actually make money and is the future of business and that's you know as we have heard politicians in the last twenty years. There's let us know the green business was the way of the future. You know there's been a lot of business at stopping that but now that we're starting to see these independent companies grow. We realized that's the truth. That's the truth of of the country and certainly the planet and it sounds like you're looking for more that you would oh young interested in investing in more companies like drooping panicles deeply and I I was Right around the time my children were born and I was the spokesperson For an organization called check which was children's health environmental coalition and it was all about healthy and safe products within the home home and educating parents to understand that the environment that your child is gonNA spend most of their time in from birth to age age one is one of the more toxic places on the planet the nursery and I didn't know that much about it and as I educated myself in terms of environmental alternatives tentatives and non hazardous alternatives cleaning products. Everything I started learning about all these amazing companies and so this has been an a half half to be educated on learn more and I love working with with companies that that matter and are making a huge difference. So I'm. I'm really excited to continue to do that. I brought up enlightened at the beginning. So have you did I. Well it honestly it was it was I would call it whimsical. I don't know if that's that's how you would think of it but it just there was something uplifting for me about watching that show and I thought it was very very special and for you I would imagine it was. It's really special. Because you played such a significant role in it not just in being on screen but in the creation of it in the production of it and I wonder what it was like to have it get so much critical acclaim and so much applause and everybody said how great it was but for whatever whatever reason. HBO Didn't pick it up for that final season. You know I will say a few things about it. I One how grateful I am that you watched it and I hope more and more people find it because right now in this world we are all amy Jellicoe and there is. There's no more perfect perfect show for our times from my perspective than seeing that character wanting to make a difference and feeling like she has no voice. And no one's listening it is ultimately about a whistle blower so that's pretty interesting and it is in the world of health and beauty and big food and Big Pharma. Yes so it's really interesting and there's a major immigration storyline interwoven in Eh. And I mean it's it's it's really interesting. Do you could get more amy Jellicoe. Maybe I mean there has definitely been talk about it. Okay Okay and Mike White and I have talked about it. And he's such an extraordinary writer and You know it was such a gift to to say. His words and two new together can build and collaborate on who this character was I you know I think one of the biggest shifts is is that we started. And let's be clear we were on. HBO When There Were No female complicated flawed female characters in half our comedy where comedies were Super Sad and dark. That was not an either. It was a very new time in that wheelhouse of it's half hour but it's dark and sad and funny and complicated and she's really angry and not always likable You know we were on at the same time as Sopranos is a very different moment in in the world of cable television at the same time we were still caught in a moment that was about Nielsen ratings and live television ratings so. HBO is trying to Define what shows stay with. At a time that people had just discovered Tivo and watching live television and we were on Sunday night television against things like the Super Bowl and the Oscars and the Golden Globes. They he will watch and not just you know. And and the tragedy of the end of season two was you know our numbers a couple months after the show is done And people started looking at Tivo numbers for the first time. We're we're huge. When then we were thanks? To amazing. Critics voted the number one show of the year on television and awarded but a decision decision had already been made and that was amazing. I mean to to be found in that way but now thank God. There's been so many breakthroughs and there's so much content and characters are so deeply flawed and complicated and you get to discover that people watch and consume consume these amazing pieces of art in very different ways and you don't have to measure in one way only sits together at nine o'clock on Sunday night and watches watches just doesn't happen that way anymore so But if ever a character if ever I would love to see a character exist in the world right now it would be amy and I hope many people watch enlighten right now mid to refreshing Before we go I ask everybody at the end of the interview about about the worst advice they have received so Laura. What's the worst advice you are received? Why is it that my brain goes to the opposite always? He's the advice yet. People like you know he is somebody who would be really bad for you. And you're like I love him so I'm like best advice. Now you're keep your eyes on your own paper. Which is the best advice I ever got from my fourth? Oh fourth grade teacher Mrs White. I liked that that was really helpful. the worst advice I Ever got I've heard a million times and the first time I ever heard it was A costume designer. When I was a teenage girl and I said Ou it feels good and I feel pretty in it and she said well you may Eh? But what do you think other people are GonNa think of you in it and it really shut me down and I remember thinking. Am I gonNa be a person who does everything for what everybody else is thinking or do I lead with what feels good to me So it was the worst advice and then it turned and into Maybe you know a space for a space for a new paradigm shift. Laura dern thank you so much for joining us really appreciate it thank you. You're amazing you are okay. It's the end of the interview which means it's time for our no limits entrepreneur of the week where we feature one of you are no limits listeners.

BONUS: Your Very Merry Christmas

"Hi everyone do we sound good to we sound good. Yeah I hope so. You hear us in our heads. Oh Yeah I'm wearing headphones. Why they never wear headphones? Yeah I'll need to as welcome to Ashley the last podcast in the last podcast of two thousand nineteen just you guys. No one is not coming out next week for new years. We've never ever taken a week off since we'll last year last year in a row podcast company. They like didn't air it during that week because we act similar so we ended up getting extra week off but so we did technically have one week off off last year but you we've never like thought in our heads we're off next. We've never physically taken a break. Yeah Yeah did you guys. Have you been reading getting the facebook group. Occasionally I was on there. Were Noida Some people were annoyed at our catfish episode. Now why why I did see some people have to say about that and then some teachers can't wait to go back and read. The some people said something that I wanted to talk to you guys about and they were like well if if they all knew that it was bad like the stories were bad. Why did they decide well? Horning did that was the thing we argued over that the argument was what. I thought that the stories weren't strong enough to do it. And they're the other you wanted to do it so we were like all right so this'll be like battle of whether or not it's going to be good or not. Well I don't I wouldn't say that I was gung-ho you weren't added to do as a pretty painful to know that something's not going to be great just you guys know that's never our intention attention but at the same time we've also asked for stories on multiple occasions and you WANNA catfish stores. The first of all you guys have wanted second of all the people that we feel bad that we made all these people's enlisting murders and say all of them are stink so we kind of try to like better than I think. At least I thought it was interesting and entertaining. PODCAST is because we kind of just laughed at everything. Yeah but but people within language I just wanted people that wrote in there to know I feel you and I get it. I feel the same way. I'm sorry I'm sorry. If we lead some you guys down and another thing is I feel like with this broadcast. Ask you don't produce it as if like every episode needs to be perfection. It's like if you guys kind of like you showed interest in having a topic whether or not the stories are good enough. We sometimes still are like okay. They wanted that so let's work with what they want. I think no cater Peter to you got right and I think the end of the day it would be so great to have an award winning podcast but we don't have the resources and our schedules are so freaking wild that I consider more of like a radio morning. Show that what you get. You're going to say what you're GonNa say if I had no other job. Hey this is what I'm trying to say. Obviously I don't get is a major party in my like what I'm saying is if it was my only job like it is for some bachelor people and some other people. Then it'd be weight easier easier for me to vet through thousands of stories as opposed to like. Does that make sense. Well it always see it also comes down to we ask our fan base for the stories and it's kind of way they you deliver. Yeah but if you guys want us to make the executive decision if we don't think stories are strong enough to not do that then just be like. Oh we truly truly don't care if you guys do it or not. It'd be an yeah well. If I'm a avid listener of a podcast I guess I would be annoyed if if one like a wash in a waste if I'm getting them once a week you guys I'm just being honest. I haven't heard one where he sat and passed three minutes. Why what do you think about a meeting even discuss this? We're done. I think this conversation's over okay. Well now I'm afraid how they're going to interpret this conversation truly. Why because maybe they're like? Oh you guys we about ideas. No what do you mean I think every I think literally the facebook group is so fun to read through. It has been the inspiration for so much shit that I feel so lucky to have it as a resource like love the vinegar I want them to interpret it any other way. Someone message me today from the facebook group and was like what are you guys. Doin' surrogates and I was like fuck. Yeah that's such a good idea. The twenty twenty half of our ideas come from facebook. So yeah you're always looks so good. I know Kelly Baker Browse. Wow the best to browse. Not sure. Good let me you know.

This is my favorite thing to get things for people that I know like is really going to excite them day. You know they'll like it. Yeah but then why is it so I'm the same way as you. Why is it so easy for us to give cool stuff but not for people able to get us stuff that we would have Because remember when you guys got me the Larry David stuff and I freaked out. 'cause like no one had ever really got me something that I was was like. This is something that I want my household. I don't know on everyone's like that. It's a very special guest that you have to give a gift. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah I don't have that gift. There's a gift of giving the road on a couple of other. I don't get it. I saw this thing thing. I've seen it for years now but I just put my head. You know at home alone when mcallister's go away and he spends he buys nine flights to France I tone yeah come on And the MEAM is the older. I get the more like how did he. Yeah and that house and that how did he do. Do we know what we know right outside Chicago. We're bringing that up. I don't know I don't get mcallister's nine. Oh it's an trip. Was it the whole time we had a whole family. Yeah but who is in that house there. It was the mcallister kids and there was like three or four. There was a fifteen hundred zero. Hey no that was like two cousins and the rest were all his brothers and sisters sir. He goes picking the whole family to Paris for Christmas. Oh well I mean that's something. They flew I clan. They did they dare insisted. The parents said the kids are in the back. I remember this. That's so funny okay. So since since it is the end of the year we'll do some end of the year and we're not going to have a podcast on the first of the year the first week of the year. Let's too many. Where's Lois Oh laois allowing us? She's right under. She do a mini retrospective on the year. And then I'm tired by Lauren. You had the most transformative. That's what I have learned this year. I'm exhausted ragged. Run Myself. Ragged crowned around. You look like you're tired right now. Thank you ma'am. That's so nice. Look at her circles of also Nice Ashley. People won't fill them for me for Christmas television. A big screen TV. I need them filled. They're not from okay. You don't need you definitely don't need them. Okay okay. Well then that's it so Lauren has been tired yet. She has expanded expanded her career. which we're all very proud of you? I got married and I don't think anything else changed besides that cool do you and you live with him now. Lord I mean the Dow a whole year and the whole. Oh Yeah. We'll learn down so regretting every moment of it. Laura's regarding every moment you're not lauren misses US super cute. It's East River dinner all the time. Zahn Komo for dinner. If you'd you'd like to join us for dinner tonight we're GonNa make the fresh pasta. If you'd like to join them I can I can you can. Oh that's on so good. You've a pasta maker. Now Jane policymakers must mazing thing ever. I do very huge career still have not found love in my life But I got to working twice. Yeah you met gala and hosted daily walk motherfuckers. Best Actor winner done. You've I've had the most impressive twenty year wild. Yeah I and I have a new car now so I do all my goodness some really happy but I just want to lose the fifteen pounds and get a boyfriend and dodge drive now. I've never driven a new car. Ever how nice those nice but yeah. I'm excited for twenty twenty. I like the number. I feel like it's going to believe evens. Yeah you guys. I'm very proud of now. Is like nobody has a better job and nobody. I mean but but like as far as well that'd be like truly you do get to interview like a listers on things and I mean you really have achieved ultimate goals. You know. It's funny after I did daily early pop remember. I always wanted to work for E.. You're not sure anymore. And then I think I realized I don't get fulfillment talking about celebrity gossip. Bachelor's like different because bouncers. Yeah no that's exactly how I feel. I liked bachelor different but like no. They asked me to talk. You don't think it is. I don't think it's that much different. Which is why I do it? All the time starving for for like fulfillment in that area too. Because I love doing like indepth interviews and when we do like the I don't when we do the almost most famous interviews and we sit down with somebody for like an hour and a half and they really get to know their soul that means fulfils my my career bank far more than just gossip and I do feel like easy just more of like. Oh we're talking about like hot topics but like I love how you get to sit down and really get to know their thoughts on thin. Yeah it's cool. I think I think I like I like covering movies TV and I hope to do it more in the future and I'm happy that I found this like thing that I really like. Yeah not to say. I wouldn't go on if they call not not to say that. I don't like episodes in depth. That's where when I leave feeling like I did like I work today. I worked in like I feel good about myself and heartbroken also jittery well and Lauren helped me out. We filmed meeting new cities and filmed a heart covered a heartbroken meeting. You weren't here. Oh that's all you're in Iceland. I believe Yeah it comes out tomorrow. UH-HUH UH-HUH I cried did UTAH. I did Oh yeah anyways. I think they're gonNA take it out though. Yeah I hope so it comes out tomorrow Charles. Yeah I can't believe it's been to in some years since I want to the heartbroken meeting. I like sobbed. I just wanted sex. I I know it's crazy. And tears seen it and then you guys got married. Yeah then jared went to Bergen meeting. We can share that but we just offered again but actually did tell me that. If I spent New Year's by myself this year that I would find my person and and she goes inches. It's okay I still think that you have. I really like the one. No okay. Okay guys as well episode should we should. We were up right now. You have some good. I don't get it I mean I do have to ask you guy too much for me to handle I o on past decade podcast. Yeah and I mean you probably so many memories from the decade like how much have view changed since like two hundred you guys. I what Jack has been using my computer later for like the past two years and I had him bring it back here that I could like copy and paste old diary wrote a diary on. I wrote a diary Grad School school years was like two thousand twelve through my last Andrew is two thousand fourteen and I was skimming through them and I truly wanted to kill myself. Why like I really? I really like it was so embarrassing them. Like I can't believe how much of matured over the past decade. I watch myself I. Can you read one for us. Actually there are going to die for this. This message is like twenty three twenty four when I wrote it when I wrote it and it's just like it sounds truly like a four. We always knew that about you. But I don't know if you knew that like like definitely did but every time I wrote in a diary I was like when I look back on this one. It's not gonNA be as little women Joe's thoughts. Yeah there are some entries made more sense than others but I I can't I don't know how you lived with me learn. Oh what do you mean. I was so obsessive and I was delusional to a certain degree. Also like I had enough support in the real world to to show that I wasn't delusional. Because I was reading it and I was like you're fucking crazy and then I was like. Oh Yeah but then that happened as you're you're crazy. Oh you more like you mean like evidence evidence evidence that I wasn't like you are dealt with you between the whole jared saga. This guy was star. Wars Saga of jared and Ashley Right. Yeah every episode Tube. Apparently you weren't i. Didn't I always knew you weren't no because in this diary so what I did. This is my time with big guys. Let's we'll reveal it so I basically copied and pasted my diary of big. Not because like I need to have it invest part of my life but because if I write this chick flick look that I say I'm going to write one day. I want to have like this material. So I'm copying pasting it and I totally lost my journos thought. You're coughing pacing about big. Yeah and you felt like L. so I was reading. My reaction was like my heart was like Oh you know just like I described what my body was going through like my like soul and like my chest and like all the feelings that you have when you're like literally going mad about somebody and then I like reading this. I'm like Fuck Save. You were in Sade. And then I would read because I wrote all the quotes. Let's see I would transcribe our conversations and then I would read the quotes. I'd be like. Oh they're warranted to beat US crazy crazy. I think that's very normal. Feeling even when people talk about like heartbreaking stuff and they're all over it like remember I always talk about the guy I dated and I'm like I can't believe I felt that way about yes that's similar feeling. It's not that it's just like it's love wraps you up in the moment. Sort the thing and I it blinds you away totally. Oh my God. Yeah yeah thicket just but you all have matured on top. Yeah overthinking thinking is like I could also go back to two weeks ago and I was like in a spiral of overthinking. I'm like wow. That was crazy that you thought wrong terrifying the mind. If you just let it keep going going you gotta look in the mirror and be like stop exact like that's crazy. I'm going to take a walk outside. That's not how I wrote in the diary. I go like there was it was. It was New Year's Eve was New Year's Eve turning two thousand two thousand fourteen and turn to Turkey along thirteen. I like just like did like a couple of paragraphs about how is feeling in that moment and how I was wondering wondering how I would feel just a week from then and then I read back a week from that and then I was like I feel better like thinking about what I was like last week is like not night and day but like I am. I'm really glad that I've like gone out of the dark hole that I was in just a week ago right so anyway. It's really fucking crazy and I know I'm GONNA say F F F but diaries are so Kanji Irish great to look back so cool you have them. I wish I would have written down down. I don't I don't have anything. From like jared like from jared I have like an entry from paradise and that was my last Irish. have it recorded on tone. That's L.. Silly yeah I feel like I was. This is gonNA sound really weird but I feel like I was for different people twenties. Now that I'm approaching twenty twenty gonNA turn thirty thirty. I think your twenties are the most transformative decade of life. Like it's crazy when I think of who I was when I lived Warren just going out in La partying all the time. And then I worked on bachelor and that was I wasn't even in. La and I just became a family with this group of people for a two and a half years that some I barely talk to anymore met you then became this person that stayed in all the time then like try to be host. Then that's all they cared about remember and like cried. I need to get this this and now. I'm like a well rounded like fell in love. I've gone through all these experiences and now I'm like okay. This is now's has now. It's so weird you're right. I think if I went to twenty two different people for different people to is crazy lauren. In your last year to people I've allows people to until I really started thinking about it. Yeah yeah that's pretty crazy. Two to four people mine was like my absolutely I lived in my head. Stage of Jonah's LANC young. Just like everything was is. I don't know you know xeres well time. No well. Yeah but you know we should do next year on a podcast. We should before four record. Listen and one of our old podcast and then like literally right. Yes I bet you so many of our opinions of changed about so many anything. Yes okay fun. My twenties was kind of like before heartbreak in heartbreak after that like and then like love happily ever after. Yeah Yeah I love that. That's a great twenty S. You can die tomorrow. Everybody should Ktar. Everybody should be heartbroken. I it was just thing that ever happened to me. My mom has never. I think we've talked about this on the podcast with but like my mom is literally never been heartbroken and her life. She doesn't doesn't even know how that feels. It's truly the most personal growth comes out of her bag. But don't you also morning is kind of like the same thing. It will obviously sleeping the founder of heartbroken anonymous. Yeah it's all it's all pain. It's overwhelming distress. Yeah but I'm not sure that morning is like I mean all of this is someone that's a loss you know your dog dies. It's a laws. Yeah if you lose a job. That's a loss morning as worse. Absolutely I mean it depends it is obviously. I don't know I would argue that being sad over someone that's gone it's still on earth. I was GONNA say that's why that's why I think there might be more growth from like a romantic heartbreak. Because you have to like deal with the fact that that person is in existence and we'll be in your life and then you kind of after does except the other one. I think you can accept the other one mentally. I don't know from somebody who hasn't mourned big lake. Yeah and do you have to create your own closure for almost all of them. Yeah sucks on that somber note. I'M GONNA I'm not gonNA leave on his new one I don't I don't get it. Yeah Yeah I have. Two one is pads versus tampons. I'll never understand he talks. About how long ago was that link to podcasts. So I didn't across off my list. Yeah well memory loss but my but the big one that I didn't address and as its phone keeps going off say Ari now. She's yelling it me. She yelled at you. Know she's a friend. Not My family knows in a way that I'm not gonNA like yell. You WanNa take a knife back do you. Okay okay. Now's is family. But she's friend family. She's not family So I don't get that we will never be able to listen to our own American accents from years of a foreigner. Oh that's a good guy guys. Good I don't get it. We will never or be able to hear what we sound like two other people other cultures other languages but I was talking specifically about the accent like I do we sound as actually as a British accent to British. No I think I don't know I wanNA hear. We should like put it out there. There has to be like something like entertain new guys. Think of would you is think of of the American accent if you will everyone listening in international. Yeah tell us what like. What are the adjectives is it? Is it fine fine. Is it pleasant. Way More tolerable to listen to as a foreigner than a normal American person listening. You know what I mean. Yeah to have an accent you know because like at least with Birdie Bull. It's like they like Kinda say. There were the emphasized some certain things we have some. We have some letters there you know but also there isn't one American accent America. America's like yeah that's true southern earn Baston or the California like Val. I would argue that. We are somewhat valley girl sounding. Well you we yes and I also had an. I don't get it on language. Which was oh you know what I don't get how come I think when we watch movies from back in the Fifties Day spoke so frontier frank? That did that evolve like no. We speak so ugly. Now tell me darling. Everything does has a British hint to it was I. Don't tell no Barbara Walters. I'm like Barbara Walters your voices like not American. So how did we go. Did our parents our grandparents talk like that when they were back in the fifties or did they just was. Is that the way they talked on in movies movies like soap. Yeah Funny Ashley and announcers like tonight you on the show and like I need to know the answer to this. Like did our parents talk like this. When they were with their families in the sixties? I don't you gotta ask your parents mind. Spoke Spanish so will you ask them for me. But I think that they're going to be like you're talking about an who sounded a little more slaying and then there and then ever pick that up and then there was even cooler a person that up and insurance And now our way that's a good point. I bet you when Elvis was elvis people really. Oh I won't talk like him much closer now. Yeah exactly is what about like the fact that the the women just always sounded so light and fluffy and like everything was just like this. I'm so happy I don't talk thank God like Katherine Hepburn. Yeah Oh and then Katherine Hepburn was cool and then we started talking and three of us have voices. On that no the very happy Hanukkah kwanzaa happy new year. We also thank you for listening to is we're mustangs for you. I know thankful was last month but I truly thankful goes everyday through sixty five love you very much bye.

I'm Brett Molina filling in for the vacationing Jefferson Graham on talking tech. Today we're talking about something completely wheatley unrelated to tech which is the Oscars the twentieth Kademi Awards But you can stream a lot of nominees on on VOD though this we'll talk about that in a second joining me right now. Is Brian truitt movie critic for Life Team. He's a Co host with me on the mothership which airs episodes every Friday on Apple podcast and spotify premature. Where you find a podcast? So we're going to dig in a little bit to the Oscars and some of his picks for the big Nominees and then we're going to talk about some of the tech stuff like streaming often stuff. let's start here. Nominees overall. What did you think of the Selection Committee made for Oscars I mean? I did like all the best pitcher nominations for the most. Aren't I still wonder about joke. Really need to be in there. I don't think so but like the other the other eight nominations of their best picture nominee. Nobody's all earl fine with me so as far as best picture. Who's your favorite going into this? Well I think you know Joe Joe. Rabbit was the my favorite movie of all last year. So that's my personal pick. I I think nine thousand nine hundred. Nineteen seventeen or parasite will probably I once upon a time in. Hollywood is a contender Irishman's a contender. I I think you know I. I think I think either nineteen seventy parasite or once time. We'll get a lot of big names in the actress category Kathy Bates dates in Richard Jewell. Laura dern Sculpture Hanson's nominated twice this year which William Florence pugh and then Margot Robbie. Who Do you think wins? Laura dern wins what makes her role stand out. I mean that's the me of a supporting character role in in marriage story. It's all about divorce drama between driver and scar. Joe You know. Have this increasingly heated. You know Custody Balan. I'm divorce thing. And Laura dern plays like the really tough lawyer divorce lawyer. La Divorced for for scar. Joe and she's like she wipes floor floor of their body which is really good. It's like her characters I mean she's She's tough tough like when in during the and then like when they break for lunch she makes sure everybody gets their their like lunch order. Make sure everybody's happy but it's but it's a really interesting character 'cause like you see you see like the like the intensity but then you also see like just the human humanness of like you know what a divorce will. You probably have to go through. You know because that's I'm sure a tough job Bob to have and I mean and like dern kills it and plus she's she's never won an Oscar before and that's you know it's There's like three people who probably in line to get their I I ask is ever this year and she. She deserves one. So let's do a quick lightning round actor in supporting role. Who'd he got Brad Pitt Brad? Pitt's filing in a win win a leading actor Joaquin Phoenix joker. That I mean the movie's not but he is and again he's never won on one and I think he gets. This is for the master. This is for you know. Walk the line. Is this for like everything he's ever done. This is one of those ones where you know. It's just the you know. Finally he gets it okay. ACT A lead actress. That would be renee Zellweger. Really Yeah Interestingly we wear now the other thing we're seeing here interest to his net flicks making a splash. A little bit with marriage story and also the Irishman You know how much how much is surprising US far seem worthy streaming services like Netflix and Amazon. Kind of making their way into the Oscars why Amazon's trying Amazon is trying trying hard. But they're just not. You know. Have as much success as Netflix. which is going all in? I think we saw on them tried to go. You know try start it to go all in with with Roma last year and Irishman to pope's and marriage door. Was I there gambit this year and they they just got money to burn and I think you know now that now that they got Bradley Cooper is GonNa do the Leonard Bernstein. Foam Netflix can behind behind. That you know that's GonNa be a Oscar. Contender is just like they. They they want they want a best picture win. Bad Bad and they're they're probably wouldn't spend any any my any amount of money it takes to get one now. I think Amazon already has one right. Because there's Casey Affleck Film. I think from a fears ago that Manchester by the sea. That's it didn't win. Did Not win. It was nominated buffum and I mean that was like you know that was their probably best bet. So far they had a couple. They had the report this past last year. They had The knots they had a few festival films. Neither of them kind of broke through. So how how do you watch the Oscars if you WANNA watch it obviously TV but our what's the streaming. It's a good question. I think you'd probably stream on ABC APP other pro. I don't know if the Oscars will have have their you know their stuff. I think they still Oscars probably still want you tuned. ABC Disney Disney Mickey Mouse when she's in ABC do the Navy So they probably don't have a lot of web presence but you know don't have the red carpet web stream beforehand. They they might be on.

The Big Little Lies Social Media Extended Universe | Ringer Dish

"Hey guys, welcome to the ringer podcasts at work. It's lists Kelley, host of ti-time, exciting news happening across the podcast network, your favorite celebrity, and pop culture. Podcasts are moving out of channel thirty three and into their very own feed called ringer dish on ringer dish. She can still listen to jam session on Wednesdays and teatime on Fridays. And it'll be launching a brand new show that will publish every Monday starting with a deep dive on jaylo, and Ben Affleck's infamous relationship hosted by Amanda Dobbins and Juliette lemon. So to hear more about the real family, and our current celebrity obsessions subscribed to ringer dish on apple Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. Hello, and welcome to episode of ringer dish, the ringers new for everything celebrity, and pop culture. I'm Kate Hollowell today in the crossover event of the century, I'm joined by a whole host of the ringers, most celebrity-obsessed mines to examine and analyze who social media presence of the cast of big allies. We're talking the coal Kidman duets with Keith urban. We're talking Zoe Kravitz their straps. We're talking sailing woodley's multiple protests and we're going to try to figure out just where they all stand on this whole big little lies social media sisterhood narrative. So I up it's big little lies expert and host of the ringers, new, big little live Twitter after show. Amanda dobbins. I'm honored to be here. My gosh, I'm honored to have you here. I noticed that you didn't mention my person in the intro, which I'm just gonna I take that as a slight because she would take it as a slight talking about Reese Witherspoon. He sure is, you know, it's hard to some her up in just one little sentence. It is she contains multitudes does. Okay. So Reese hasn't Seagrams and house Twitter yet, and is the most active member of Twitter. But I think, but she's basically just I think she has an auto examines Twitter. It's a lot of the same content you'll engage with people from time to time on Twitter. Right. She'll kinda insert herself into conversations but not like controversial conversation, actually, like she'll do the thing where she like quote tweets something to kind of make it go viral, like where she's like part of the conversation, but not really meaning low income oggi's out of those. That's I don't know if she's actually ever actually repeated set. Rogan probably feels. Right. So the overall vibe, first of all of her Instagram, social media, presence, Twitter presence berry, curated, would you agree? Oh, yeah. I mean, this is a social media manager at work hundred or sent and by the way, a lot of people have social media managers, and I think, honestly, if you are as famous as Reese, Witherspoon hire a social media manager business. Get someone to help you and she's also, not totally disconnected from it, which we know because she's like in a lot of the photos, you know, she had happened like holding up a letter board with. She's all in on the content creation. Yeah. Rossa what we know about Reese Witherspoon, and what connects me to Reese, Witherspoon is that she is such a control freak that she is not like divorce from this process. Oh, yeah. She just knows how to delegate which all import, you know, powerful women should right? I admire it for sure. Yeah. She loves the hashtag or her social game. Andrew love. Tag. There's a lot of like hashtag Monday mood hashtag wine Wednesday like ten percent of her social media, presences, just like, don't talk to me before I've had my coffee. Yes. Pinterest slogans actually don't talk to me before I had my coffee. So that's fine to argue with that. But it is like the kind of like mom life. Can you believe it Monday life inspirational quotes? Yes, she has like one of those baby boards. Do do you know what the be old enough to have? I wrote it down. I was like a chalkboard thing, but it's not a chalkboard. You right. It's like the it's like the board that Instagram. Parents used to be like five months exter- loves, like you know, robot videos or whatever. Yeah. A little plastic letters where you put it on. Yeah. But she's using it for baby. She's like using it for her coffee. Slow literally pincher sport every now and then, like she'll post something I'm like this is literally, I'm sure that she's unbelieveably active on Pinterest. And I I'm just not a huge pinch. To user anymore really used to be I never really got into it, because it was. So when I became popular was so closely associated with wedding planning. Oh, yeah. And which was just a that was a real saga for me that I didn't participate in. I, I did not let my wedding. My husband did I was like get this away for me. But as I didn't even wanna be near Pinterest as a way of as an institution. Yeah. So I, I just don't have a lot of knowledge there. But I think you're right that it's definitely Draper, James, which is her clothing, and do they excel candles and stuff. They must the ads like shoes clothing. Yeah. It's in the and that's another part of her Instagram presence, as well as like she half in extreme like self promo. Yeah. She's wearing the dresses and but always looks like they're on a picnic like in the south lot of like gingham. Yeah, flouncy. Yeah. The Draper, James stuff is there's a lot, there's so much there's the whiskey and teacup book that she has so much self promo on her Instagram. She wrote the. In a teacup, but yeah. Like how to be classy southern broad. Right. Who is also a feminist, which is just to say fast. I said, I also a technically southern broad who's this? I don't want to take ownership of that part of this. So keep going lot of like she does this documentary series. She's like shine on with res like she'll promote that. Right. I think that's part of her direct TV. Yeah. Yes. So it's like such an interesting again. Extremely curated mix. I mean she's cut a quietly doing the same thing on like a much lower level. That say Gwyneth Paltrow or riana like a much lower level than please don't add me I to worship. But this idea where you're you become famous ruined thing like right in recent case for being an actress, and then you diversify. And so she's producing shows for direct TV and she has her fashion line. And she, you know, we should talk about the book club, which started on, right? Graham. But like she is figuring out all the different businesses that can spin off of like the research experience. I guess it's an Oprah model as well to make sure who she is. She loves to post about an Instagram because they did a wrinkle in time together. Yes. Yes. And her Instagram is kind of the ground zero for that, it's where they all come together, and also how she's marketing the brand that then becomes all these things you can buy, which is like how a lot of people make money. Now it's pretty savvy. It is extremely savvy. I mean it's corny. But it's Abby. Yes. And it's, it's like she also kind of has to include these hashtag relatable, posts as well as a sort of balance this out. She does like the self memes, where she'll do like her an election or a like all these people like referencing legally blonde. And like those are sprinkled in just to be like, I'm aware, I'm online. Oh, yeah. But I think person I liked that. I liked awareness, I self deprecation. I agree. She doesn't a good way where she like it was certain Reese, mean will go viral so like nod to that it'd be like, I see you. And also I just had to throw this out there. She tries to do these, like cooking posts all, all, like Jennifer garner dot quite there. No, he's not there yet. I mean, the Jennifer garner saying is, when is, she to have her own show, really tremendous? I also like to know how to time Denver garner spends on those Instagram, posts with I to worship garden, Jennifer garner. And I have that in common FAM it's a lot of work that she's doing. And she's also like making gluten free chocolate croissants, like before seven AM, not an extremely high level. Yeah. No one can reach that even for this. I appreciate that races is kind of your, and then just posting other wine maim, you know, like I go well, but, like, here's some jokes that line. Here's another chalkboard. Yeah. Okay. So there's this big, big little lies sisterhood push that we've sort of encountered since season one where Trayvon stunt like we love each other so much. We're all sisters cetera. How much sisters lot so much? I've blocked that they use the worker sisters constantly. Yeah. I mean it's interesting because Reese Witherspoon is a producer on big little lies, as an as is Nicole Kidman and kind of the origin story of this show is that they were really involved in it, which was new for them. And helped them create a different type of show and show that features more women, it is more appealing to him. And, and as a woman who gets really annoyed at all the dumb prestige TV that I have to watch. That's like picked by mostly men. I think they did a great job. Yeah. So I think that it. Some of that is, like based in. That's how they made the show. But then they also found that it was a great selling point. Right. And so then they lean into it. I mean it worked to help them when Emmys they've got a second season. Yeah. And they're still very committed. I think to that narrative Reese included, and we're gonna get to Laura Dern in a bit with Juliet. But resigned, think is buys into the sisterhood thing, the second, most of all of found not quite as much as Laura Dern, but a lot. Yeah. Because I mean, again, it fits into the whole Pinterest know just me and my pals, you know, like a sensitive, my girls or whatever exactly both are lovely things respect to sunset and to my girls. But I think that it's a little bit how she is she's a little bit corny. And I think it is also a little, she's a producer, she's really savvy for sure. And that's how they're selling the show works selling the show for sure. Final question do we wanna see from her during season to do we want just like continued Pinterest floral gingham race or is? Anything new we wanna see from her social media. Well, I want briefly just about her book club, only because that's basically, how her Instagram started was that she was just recommending books that she likes in Reese, Witherspoon is apparently of racial reader in her own life. And I believe her because she seems. She's very intelligent. But also seems like Taipei and after just be like now, I will read a book write it takes one to know one, I promise and essentially from starting this book club what she just kind of started as a hashtag. She has built an entire production company and producing career around it. And now she options books and big little is, is one of those. Right. So in addition to being happy that, that turned into TV, I think she has great book taste. I actually really enjoy a lot of the books that she recommends. So I love more of that. Yeah, I would love to know what the next big little lies is because I have already read that book I recommend it. If you have not, it's fun. And you know, it's the summertime and I to go to the beach and read, so I would love more respect club there. We got the next great be tree from Reese, Witherspoon, want and season. Two. Yes. Amanda, thank you so much. Hey, you're welcome. Thanks for having me. All right. Thank you, again, to Amanda and next up. This is thrilling here to talk about our mutual wife, Zoe Kravitz. Is just absurd thirst trapping. It's Mallory Reuven. What an honor to be here with you today to talk about our life. So he Kravitz. This is the thrilling development for me personally, I've never podcast with mal before and it feels so. Right. That we should just be like drilling over Zoe Kravitz skill right? Good ten minutes. I have to say, I'm not sure it's responsible of you to invite me here today. I'm not sure I should be allowed to speak publicly about this. Your even privately. Thirsty. Podcasting trying to keep it a jailer. See on Basilan party. Let's not outdo. That one. I'll do my best. Okay. Grail promises, fabulous. Okay. So we were just talking about Reese Witherspoon. It's very like Pinterest chic, Instagram aesthetic. I would not say that. That's Zoe's, Instagram aesthetic. How would you characterize? It perfection perfection. It is. Art. It is life. It is. Myth. It is poetry. I mean, this is all true. I would say it's first of all, it's just one big thirst trap, which I respect in every way it's about eighty percent extremely hot pictures of her. Yes. It's like twenty percents sell fees, and then just like pictures of her parents in memes, it's pretty icon, ick mix because you will go from I mean within the span of days and sometimes even hours a photo of her. Omos completely in the nude with strategically placed p literally pieces of fruit Ah-ha the fruit of her femininity, right? Of course, or something sure if that I don't know, to just like a post about her dad. I was I was telling before we started. I was going through, and I was like it's kinda weird that she posts so many like extremely hot pictures of her parents like Zoe like they're your parents. And then I was like her parents or at Lisa Bonet. Lenny crab, thing picture, does not exist. Then that is not extremely hot. That's the thing like she is one of the hottest people in the world hundred percent. Her parents are two of the other hottest people in the world, that us three and I see lien in completely also though, in addition to her parents, what you get every now. And then is the stepdad. Oh, yeah. Papa bear knew this was coming. Drago himself selling some action. What a blessing those pictures are simultaneously, thrilling and just slightly unmourned because the instinct when you look at a picture of the that come together to think that there are a couple one hundred percent. Yeah. It's extremely confusing. Every time they come up you're like, oh, they look great together and had like, wait this trial that fatter. Yes. So that's that can be jarring Severi, like game of thrones esque vibes from on fitting, but they seem to have a lot of love for each other do, that's, that's the other thing about her Instagram. There's a lot of real emotion, and a lot of like, unabashed, this is who I am proud of who I am proud of the people in my life. I love the people in my life, her boyfriend sneaks in there. Every now host bid just got like secretly married, I refuse to acknowledge that or sure that I can't expires, it like that HAMAs has been fine. It's fine. Okay. So that's the general vibe yet, for Instagram, do we think she has a PR man? Or do we think it's all her now? Maybe I'm just an easy Mark, because I'm, I'm so absolutely just smitten sir same. But I think it's all her. I think it's her to his very Fenton vibe. Agreed. There are a lot of blunt jokes. Yes. I know it's a little too edgy. I think to be. Yeah. Not be her. There's the requisite amount of like, here's the magazine cover. I was just on. Here's something about the show or the movie that I'm about to be in, you know, here's some connection to my new beer ad that I am advertising for like that stuff is all in there. And maybe that part of it is, more managed, but so much of it is just like it's gonna be made me. I feel like there's, there's no way that, that's anything. But I totally agree. Even if it's political, it's like a screen shot of an article with, like her phone. Yes. Surged in the corner, like you know what I mean? Like it's not careful enough, I think, to be someone hired earliest, not totally not then set. I like that part of it, too, you know, she puts her politics out there, that's short of what makes it feel. So fully Representative of who she is. She is like this is a this literally is a snapshot. Not just a moment for my life. But of my life, this is the public facing access to who I am. And that's all parts of who I am. And I, I find it both inspirational and aspirated it'll agreed. I really love it much tattoos. She's my tattoo idol, I spent so much time zooming in on her tattoos to study them with great deliberation and care, like I've, I've referred to it to Jason and I are talking about tattoos. I often call it like a constellation is like this dusting almost of stars. Yeah. There are so many little tiny ones magnum. I actually just for reference have zoomed in now on the Rolling Stone cover that we must discuss which is a great representation of her tattoos considering their entire bodies on display. Did this Rolling Stone cover for quote the hot issue, twenty eighteen appropriately named where she recreated her mom's cover? Also, just extremely iconic fact that's true to her mother's recreating. The naked Rolling Stone cover fabulous. Also quick note. Her mother was two months pregnant with her, when she did her naked Rolling Stone, cover, which makes this technically Zoe's second naked Rolling Stone cover. This was the birthplace of the fruit series, as we can call it. Yeah, this stuff belongs in the met. That's my take. It's worth the many, many posts that she made of it. But this is the national butcher Valerie like it was excessively. Do you have a favorite? I, I love them all I think that the. The what I think many people consider them. The best is one of her holding and eating the peach right where her forearms are obscuring only some of her breasts read all of her tattoos are on display. She is looking through the screen not only into your eyes, but into your soul like you are the only other fuck in person alive in the world. It's just you her and the juices from that peach, like, it's the closest I've ever felt to feeling like I was in a call me by your name, great involving a peach. It's mesmerizing. You could see the juices dripping down or ours. I mean, it's, it's so sexual extremely, and this is like almost an indefensible thing to say because it just isn't true. But I can't help but think that there's something subtle about even three decidedly. Not some of it on anyone else. This would have been like a trashy shoot. It's so good. It's extremely classy for somebody who's posing naked with various fruits shit. Looks shoe. Looks incredible straight. And she's just so cool. You know. Yes. Like there's just that aspect of it where you're just like you're literally, the coolest human. Yeah. She just seems like you would wanna hang out with right? She's the classic you either want to be her be with her be her friend cry of person. Right. It's incredible. It would just hang out there, eat fruit. Make it or watch her eat for fine with that, too. So these, these pictures, she put post them in the way, a couple more days and posts another one, and then we had a couple more days and post another one, she dragged out this photo shoot for literal weeks. I respected, but it would like derail the ringer celebrity slack, every time it happened. We would just like lose our minds a little bit in UBS, Sean, you specifically. But yes, she just she did the watermelon as well. That one is it's really song. Peach was overly sexual really pales in comparison to the watermelon. Yeah. But yeah, these it's just like Connick just instantly. I caught it. Especially considering the part of this training her mom's iconic cover. It's just exceptional work. It's exceptional organ that, if you go back, even further into the history of her Instagram, there's a little bit more. There's the one with the peach just fully in her mouth. That one of my favorite. That's a great one. It's hard to choose a favorite is Jerry stuff. She's electric. She really is. So the question that we're kind of addressing with everyone is how much does this specific member of the Monterey five buy into the big little lies like sisterhood narrative on social media? My take is Zoe buys into it. Exactly as much as they expect her to buy into it, and still more than that, which I think is right. I think that's right. I mean, she she does post the you know, red carpet shots. She has the one of all of them kind of all sitting on reese's lap rate on the chair and her caption is, it's a bummer. We don't like each other, which is like, okay, good. You're you're expressing something that either eat sincere affection for these people or at least convincingly plays as sincere affection phrase people, which is lovely. No, she's got the shot posing by the bus. I think he likes greedy exact appropriate amount of promo. Yeah. This, I think that her her vibe also is like. I kind of can't believe that I'm part of this show, which there's like a slight degree of, like observing from far even though she is literally in the thing that's part of what I liked about the, the bus ad pose. It's like oh man. I'm like on this things stand by this thing. I like that too, because, you know, that that's true for the character as well. There's a little bit of like a I'm not quite a part of this world. And she is just such a unique character and charismatic force that she's never gonna feel like she's the same as anybody. But everything that she does. Feels like instead of feeling calculated just feel so sincere because she just seems like the kind of person who wouldn't be doing it if it wasn't sincere which is like I mean, I realized that this is like two ludicrous thing to say the celebrity promoting a show, you know. I understand that bought into this crevice that's it. I'm just I'm under her spell, so fully Sam that she can kind of sell me on anything. Agreed row. Quick. What do we want from her during season two? I just have more thirst picks. Written down. Yeah. That would be that would be my more of the same. I think some oceanside, you know, jumping in the waves some sort of imagery like that. Give me some Zoe adjacent to real estate porn. Oh, wow. I would also like that would be great. Yeah. I don't need a ton of the like behind the scenes stuff. They'll really I'm grateful for anything gives us. Honestly, it's a gift. It is now. Thank you so much. Thank you. And thank you zoey now for a strong pivot from NSF w photo shoots too extreme mom energy, removing onto Laura Dern with none other than Juliet lemon. Hello, juliet. Hello. I just want to say I. To be in the segment because my personal pins tweet is about Laura Dern. I know it is so no one is more qualified comment on her social media. I knew I've been a fan of Laura Dern since I found out, she converted to Judaism for Ben Harper when they got married. I think that's fair. Thanks as a Jewish woman, it just as a big deal, you know, you're like very invested in her relationships in general. Yeah. I mean, we're coming up on two years, it'll be two years in December when she was spotted making out, just in the middle of broad daylight with Baron Davis. I know he feels strongly about that. And then we never heard about it again, which also wild it came and went so quickly, not a peep was uttered since I still wonder about that. Everyday. Sources say that was really. That was real. Wow. I believe that I think that, that feels real for her. Sure you contains multitudes. Did you ever look at her architectural digest spread? I did she a lovely home. She, of course, she does, you know, yes. She really does. It's Laura Dern active on Instagram Twitter. But in a similar way of Reese, where it's a lot of crossover content between her Twitter and. Her instagram. Right. They're not like separate channels, right again. Just very strong. Mom energy for me across the board here. I think so as well, but it's a very specific kind of mom. Yes, it's a real like activist. Mom limousine liberal kind of mom very, very woke and nothing. She doesn't she, you know, I actually can't speak to like her level of activism, sir. But it comes across as sort of like having all of the right values in my opinion. But I'm not sure she's like Nestle out there fighting the good fight every day. But someone in her position who's a lot of his ability at hearing certain values and advocating for them is a big deal. Sure. She's her platforms. I don't want to downplay that, but she does have one of the worst Instagram's out there. She really doesn't actually I was gonna talk about this later but we can talk about it now. I read this article where she was talking about her daughter, social media, and she has ruled for her daughter says, guys, it's really important to be of service, and she tells her daughter, essentially, if you follow a celebrity, then you have to follow a. 'cause. Oh, so she's like, oh, the celebrities really cool. How about we also fall Greenpeace? So that's her daughter, which is just the most Laura Dern thing, I've ever life really backs up. We were saying about. We're social media, activism really does that definitely comes across on her Twitter Instagram that she's very like just outspoken about certain causes. Yes. Which is great definitely big part of, like, you know, times up and all that. Like there's just something so back either, but Laura Dern at all times, even when she's in her former wear. And by the way, I love her red carpet, looks, I think she's one of the best red carpet, dressers out there styled so well. And she her glasses are deployed always the right moment. She doesn't always one of them on the red carpet will when she does she just looked so fantastic. Agreed fantastic. She is also doesn't give she doesn't over praise her stylist up artists, which I kind of find to be like slightly. It's like giving credit. Maybe you should do to help your people. But I kind of liked that. She's not always like at Carla Welsh stylist or whoever, right? Yeah. Which, actually, we are going to discuss later with saline Woodley, because she really has fallen into that lately. But yeah, you're right. Not a lot of like the makeup sell fees, and things like that old Hollywood. Still just sort of, like you don't need to see all the seems. I'll get you get what I give you exactly exactly. And I also kind of comes to play like in her photo shoots. Where is in post, like every single picture, just suppose the cover, and then be like, go read the article, and like read about and see all of these here? But yeah, I love just like the the back and forth between being like political or Dern, and mom, Laura Dern. And then just like here's an incredible picture of me on the cover of install or whatever else. Yeah. It's kind of a roller coaster on her Instagram once in a while, she also really flexes like from fashion week this past year. She went to the raft Simon's show rafts for Calvin Klein, and she posted a sideshow, three photos, one is her flanked on the left by a separate guy and on the right by Gwendolyn Christie, then the second line is her and Socia Ronin. And then it's just her wearing like a black mesh see through shirt, black bra and like a pink overcoat. And she limited incredible. And that is I this photo was taken. These are posted on September twelve twenty eighteen in that is these. Guys Sertucha Gwen, and he's up rocky. I mean you've covered all your bases getting better than that. She does love like a celebrity selfie with other golly, Gaga. And there are a lot of like celebrity friends where she's like my friend with my friend also huge fan of using the word goddess, yes. Talk about other women if she were a little bit younger. She would definitely be a yes. Queen kind of gal your person a lot of like my partner in crime. My goddess my muse. She's like very into those like, I guess, adjectives to describe she's supportive is what you're saying, extremely supportive. It's part of that intense, mom energy. Yeah. Okay. So do we think how much of this is done? And how much of this is social media manager. I think it's a lot during I think it is too. I think she's just extremely savvy. I agree. One thing I wonder where someone like her and I was looking at someone else's really posted. Oh, looking NBA players leave. They pose a clips of the bachelorette is they're in it. I'm confused about how you get the professional grade photography onto. The Laura Dern phone once it's there. I'm sure she can post it. But is it texted the texted to her, like, how does it physically or not physically, but how does it digitally appear on the iphone of Laura Dern, because that seems like the biggest barrier to this being all Laura? That's a good question. How does she get all like all the media when it's like an official photograph from fashion week route, as she gets the snap not like Snapchat old persons lingo, for the photo of her and the celebs? I don't get it. Maybe it's all of her like very like she's close friends with, like Laura Brown in style. She's like, maybe she's just in enough with all the media places where they just like texted to her mmediately. I mean it's possible. I I've just never really understood like how I think it or like her publicist. Gets it in Texas or something like that. I'm not sure. But it's something that she's she's good at. But it's like one of my primary questions about celebrity Instagram like how when it is authentic. How do you get this material to share? Right. I don't know. The answer. I don't know. Either some iconic post favorite moments. You mentioned the fashion week one. I also love she engages with the memes. Yes. Which I always appreciate about a celebrity personal favorite name should three separate posts about this. When I was going back through Instagram, how much she looks like Beaubourg them. Oh my God. It's so funny. She loves to talk about how much, well, I guess how much Boettger and I'm looks like her literally three several posted them side-by-side being like. Yup. And then she met him in an award show, and she put it together with one of the old calms them side by side. It's really funny. I don't think that look alike. What does he even funnier a little bit? But now we're three separate post. They look like blonde blonde. White people. Exactly. So she just really loves that she's really into that bit. Yeah, I guess, so. Also loves the birthday post. Yes. Which is kind of just, like I feel like this age of actress, really loves birthday post, like Reese, also does really, really into it like every fourth post feels like a birthday post for some celebrity friend in generally people don't celebrate enough. So I liked that Laura Dern embraces salary action. You don't think it's like one of those like company celebrities, I'm friends with because some people do that. I think it's different when you're the child of an actor like I think her father being Brewster and right. It's just it's for her whole life catapulted her into a different space than let your right? Shaleen woodley. You're right. She like actually just happens to have a bunch of stuff. She says she wants to celebrate. She used such a product of LA in a way that we don't see that often actually and when we do see it, they're all in the film book smart, you know. So I think that's who she is. I agree. I don't know. I'm too pro Lord, Lord. Speaking of Bruce, she also post a lot about her parents, a lot of like my beautiful mama, happy birthday to my dad with, like an old picture of him, Laura, Dern not that cool and isn't much going on. Probably is just like going to events with their kids and she works like what else does she really have to, you know, it's true? So what else is she going to post about? You're right. Well, she's also should the celebrity mom be posting. I just want her kids aren't on here that much that's show. There's should they be. I don't know or do we like that. She keeps them out a little bit question. I don't know. But like I don't I don't know what else Laura Dern should be posing. If you start to go back far, she posts, a lot of pictures of the oceans like we. Yeah. Rich person. You're seaside dogs. Yeah. And I don't know. Is that is that better? I don't I don't think so. I think so either I just pretty good job. She isn't it. She's an enjoyable Instagram, totally. It's kind of like, what you'd expect from a calmer Renata? Exactly. It actually is pretty very Renova in to a certain extent. Also speaking of that, how much does she buy into the big little lies sisterhood social push? Well, she buys into the lobby and I was much as Reese. You think I think she's you think she's not enough? I think she buys into with the most. Oh, I think reece's it a little bit more but Lord and won all the awards. And she like when for season one. Yeah, I feel like there's probably some resentment towards Laura Dern. So she has to be ultra positive as a result. Right. And I also read it as like being like per reece's like project. Yeah. Whereas Laura doesn't have to do it choose chooses to be like these are my goddesses. These are my sister's. Inspire me every day. I just feels like more of a choice for that might be. But I think if you go back through all this, you're just like, is it a choice, just natural income? Right. This is what she does is she celebrates her projects, essentially, she was, I appreciate that, about her. I mean, she's just like she's fun at wacky. She seems like she's probably really wacky in a great great way. I agree. House really made. It seem like that as well in architectural digest, I recommend you check it out. She was like a large courtyard in the middle of her house. Of course, she does it seems very serene. But also, like they kind of impractical. She'd really nice windows, though. I I'm totally into her house Morehouse picks on Instagram. What else do we want from her during season? Two more Meam engagement more behind the media. Yes, definitely more behind the scene picks, especially now year ago. Oh, they filmed right? The show. Let's throw back. There are bound to be something Granada memes. Do we want her to engage with that? I don't think so. No, no. I think she can like them, perhaps. Yeah. Or let's catch her on comments by celebs commenting on them. But I don't know if we need them on at Lord. I agree. Yeah. Keep some distance away from a little bit. Keep a chill Laura Juliette. Thank you so much. Thank you. All right. Next up here to see whether we can get through a segment together without asking someone to murder us. It's Alison Herman here to discuss Nicole Kidman. It would be similarly, thematically appropriate. I'm just saying it would Alison I ever United after doing killing recap Ables we're here to talk about another tall woman who could absolutely like step on us. So yes, fashion. Yeah, women. Yeah. Murder. It's all it's all the same. There we go. So Nicole Kidman has no Twitter, but she's very active on Instagram, but only recently, very recently recently. She got Instagram during the Golden Globes like time's up. Thing, which is fascinating because that's literally nine months after the show came out he didn't even get one for the actual promo tour of this project that see she executive produced and headline. It was nine months later during an award season thing they were like already winning things. Yes or it which I'm choosing to interpret as like a crusade on Reese, Witherspoon, part, only brought her friend or out only got her. Okay. So the overall vibe of her Instagram presence, I personally, think it's like a good mix of Dern Reese Zoe, and, like this is my family. Here's a picture of me now, like, here's a celebrity friend of mine that I'm supporting I feel like it's a good balance between all of them in terms of just like a mix of content. Although she's different from all of them in that. I mean, certainly recent Laura, are very prolific on Instagram S. She Leinen Zoe are younger. They are native to the platform. They I think are clearly a little more comfortable on it. Nicole is of slightly older generation of movie star. I think she's used to being detached from the public and unaccustomed to speaking to them directly. And when I was looking over her Instagram, which, as we just mentioned is literally only like a year and a half old point, and only has like, two hundred and forty post or something like that, which certainly pales in comparison to like your typical influence. Yes. But I decided that I think Nicole Kidman's Instagram presence is like the that platforms equivalent of a writer who technically has a Twitter, but only uses it to auto tweet out their own posts. It's just like the montlake believe Keith urban take. I'll have you know. Okay, like the urban content is wonderful. And we will talk about that. Yes, foot like she only follows eighty people, right? Half of them are literally the official accounts of movies that she was involved at all co-stars etcetera. Yes. Like. Strayer the movie or what have you. And she mostly tweets out like a Hollywood reporter photo shoe something like you know, blandly promotional she doesn't really engage in, like me, Marie. She doesn't really engage in like TBT. It's very try hard in a way that I, I really enjoy. And as you just mentioned, like she does have the authentic husband, family content there. And that's feels a lot. A little warmer Blake, she is very aloof image. Yes. And is definitely does not broadcast like I need you to love me the way that social media sheriff. And it's true. It's kind of like the opposite of desperate. It's kinda like you know, she she's doing a lot of Provo and like you can tell us, she's kinda just like that's what she's meant to be doing. But yeah, the Keith urban Cephas is kind of it's almost like baffling we can get more into that in a second, but it's almost baffling to the point of like the only really personal stuff that she posts is with him. I mean it's so corny I I guess we get to talk about it. I just think Nicole Kidman's public. Image is so frosty so tightly controlled so elegant and it's so nice to see her just be cheese ball. She really is. And especially, I mean like her romantic history, at least publicly is like, you know, there's literally an iconic set of photos of her triumphantly leaving the divorce lawyers office right after she and Tom Cruise split up. And that was, obviously, like very tortured. And just to see eyes wide shut. If you need a whole refresh mortem right at whole relationship, but it's just great to see her be happy. And we were talking earlier about how we kind of think they're like a good couple in that. They're probably objectively, a similar level of famous. Like he is actually a country superstar, if you like we forget that as coastal elites, right with his his own audience. He's huge. Yes. Yeah. Similarly famous but for different thing. Yes. And I feel like it must be nice if you're like Nicole Kidman level famous, too, don't they spend most of their time in Nashville at this point. I think so. Yeah, I think they're I mean they're, they've talked about how they're very committed to staying together when. He's on tour, she's filming something. But I think yeah, I think most of the time there. Yeah, I'm sure at that level of fame. You don't really like live anywhere. Right. But they're certainly together. Very frequently on her public facing media, which is very sweet. And like one of my favorite Nicole Kidman Instagram posts of all time, I'll actually not technically instruments on Facebook. Yeah. But it's when she's in her dressing room for big little lies getting done up in her celebratory or not just the less like that. Fisa Tiffany, right. LB finale outfit, and she's just like singing along to one of his songs and it's so like over the top, and expressive, and, like sweet. I just I love it. It is. It's such guests such a, you know, a departure from like the sort of like uptight image that we think of her, which, I think are definitely like the highlights of her Instagram are like a just these like duets that she'll do with Keith to or like I saw an article where it was like video proof that Nicole Kidman can sing. I was like, okay, first of all, that already exists. It's called moola, raise. That's offense. Yeah. She has like a couple. So like just randomly do it with Keith, like on the piano, and she's just like very over the top in love with him on her Instagram, and it's really cute. Her Instagram is almost as promotional, if not more so of his career than hers. Yeah, she's extremely like supportive wife status like of, like tweet pictures of him like from his album or like old picture. Like I just love the song so much great job, baby. I did not have time to crunch the numbers on this. But I would estimate that at least forty percent of her Instagram content is Pacific photos of her with teeth at country music award show. There's so much like, oh my God. He just one. Here's a selfie. Here's a ton our like pictures of him on stage. There's a lot of that there are a lot of album pictures while I'm scrolling through right now. And there's so much either been content just in general great. It's really cute. And that's something that a lot of the other cast members don't really have is like the they have a lot of like family member post. But not a lot of them. Yeah. Me too supportive. Spouse angle Reese, Witherspoon husband is like, basically, and Instagram husband. Right. So we Kravitz is newly married, so there's like horny, newlywed, content Shaleen, and Laura are both like out here. Right either long talking about Salines hot Roby player boyfriend in a minute with Amelia. I'm actually not up on that particular development romantically. So I cannot wait. Yes, I would say Nicole is the most like she's very mobile acing power. She's definitely cornered that, but yeah, some other highlights there's a post where she waves to the access. Hollywood bus on the way to get ready for the Oscars that I found extremely horrible. And obviously, you know, we've talked I mean, I guess we've kind of said this, but her, her Instagram is very much like not run by her to a certain extent. We I think it's absolutely essential media manager. I mean it's nice because you can tell a lot of it is stuff that she likes photograph lay video for cat or like the selfie bullet clearly, she emailed it, right? In extreme mom fashioned. She emailed it as like a j peg. Some poor twenty five year old right to turn it into has a strong hand in it. But yeah, it's, it's too good to just be her. And all of her relatable content has also just extremely well, curated, like the access. You waves this access Hollywood bus, she's being filmed from like the inside of her car on the way to get rid of the Oscars and she's like, and they're like freaking out that she was a lot of cap picks. She has like a boomerang or she's like an cowboy hat, with, like a belly shirt on, like dancing back and forth. So, you know, she's actually pretty good at the like relatable content thing. But, like good enough in a way, we were like this isn't all you doing this totally. I mean one of my highlights that I selected is almost like I selected it specifically because it's an anomaly, and it's very unusual for him, which is on February twenty second of this year. She posted a still from aquaman, where never forget she plays. Jason God do that math. I don't know. I don't understand how it works horrible but it's like her holding I guess, young Jason facing. What a character who I don't know because I definitely did not see that maybe sorry to call. I love and support you but not that much, but it's like Nicole is the label for her kid is she's holding than man. Great whole kid, man. And it's just first of all, it's very unusual. I feel like she does not really do the lake. I'm self aware, image, the way like Reese, Witherspoon will absolutely quit legally blonde. Yes, all the we talked earlier about how Reese always engages with, like the self means, but that's definitely an anomaly for Nicole. Yeah. Or like Laura Dern, we'll definitely do her Breyer, twin peaks style or whatever. But, like, first of all, Nicole isn't usually do this second of all. This is literally a rip off of a mean that my friend variety chief, TV critic David area made during I believe it was the Golden Globes. But it was for lion. Right. And, you know, just glad that he's getting do or not. Yes. She doesn't really do like internet things. A lot of it is just like you know, repos from a magazine, right? She was doing which like, it's the exactly the right combo. I agree. I am detached. I'm Nicole Kidman. I am a movie star, you dot talk to me and like, right? Here's a very curated. Glimpse of me being goofy. Exactly. I agree. It's pretty much exactly what I would want from her on social media wrote quick. We've been talking about everyone how much they buy into like this big little lies sisterhood narrative. What do we see from Nicole? In terms of like being obsessed with the whole, like my sisters. I think she's really into it, and it's pretty into it, I mean by into it. I mean that she is an executive producer. So is in her monetary interest rate be vocally into it, and also I think she has like a much more direct reason to feel ownership of this project. I do think, you know it's not really on her Instagram, but when she gave the speech. Like, she got the it's really important to let women tell their own stories lying. Yes. You know, I do genuinely believe that she feels an investment in this for feminism reasons, but also. Yes, I did notice a lot of them will post celsius with, like other cast members be like my sister. My landlord earns case, my goddesses my muses, and an almost all of Nicole's. It's like a extremely flattering picture her in significantly less slaughtering picture, whichever cast mate. She's. It's a straight up promotional still right, just like here is like a frame, right, there were just like three different pictures of her, like crushing tiny res like into her tall elegant bosom. And I was like, okay, so this is stood only extend so far is it's like a good angle for Nicole crucial test of friendship. I really do you post unflattering photos of your friends when they are part of a group over you look great. Yeah. And she sure does, that's that's far as it extends rental notice. I just don't think like I dunno. She's definitely a little bit more about like the work than the journal celebrity persona just because she doesn't have that much of the external personas. Like, of course, she's just gonna be like, watched big, little lies the Sunday, nine pm gonna be like tongue-in-cheek. There are no MO jeez. Go God coal Kidman using please. I hope I never see the day. Okay. So what do we want to see from her on social media during season to my note was? Less. Keith more. Merrill, Keith can take a back seat for the next seven weeks. IBM in my listen. Merrill, is playing her character's mother-in-law which yeah there's, there's some stuff going on there. Yeah. We've got to get some mail content on the Graham from Nicole. I would like to see Nicole Kidman play a little more into the internet culture that surrounds, the show link not too much. But just, you know, maybe like a picture her sharing last why. And be sure we do it off off camera to engage a little bit with, like, the discourse the, the memes. Yeah. We're just like a picture of like Laura Dern, fake yelling at her and being like we're not just I don't know. It's a very fun show and I, I'll just do like gratuitous but, but I wrote a piece of the safest week about her character character for understandable reasons within the context of the show, doesn't get to be fun. Yeah. Like she's not, you know, Laura Dern gets to be the biggest Reese, I think, gets to kinda traverse both worlds her character because she's in a really tragic situation. Is like much more toned-down serious. And I would like to see a coal, get a little less serious, sir. I would agree. And I guess we'll find out in the next seven weeks. But thank you so much, Elsa. Listen, it's always a pleasure. Always and finally here to talk about the deeply confounding and just constantly evolving. Social media presence of miss Shalin Woodley two million. What am I r-? I know. All right. So we were just talking about Nicole Kidman with Allison nice. And she was talking about how, you know, Zoe and Shaleen are different because they were sort of born into this shore. She'll media, they fit naturally into Instagram and Twitter Shaleen Neal's. Yeah, right, right. They get it. So just from day one, I think Shaleen is a little more like free-flowing their social media, for sure. What would you say the overall vibe at least for Twitter it's very activists. I mean fricken profile pic is like. Stop the violence. I don't really know what it is. But there's like a hashtag in it, and asked her looking sad and wanting to stop the violence. Whatever violence that may be right. And she knows always been very act. I Valeri active politically. Yes. She. She always kind of, she's kind of gone away from this recently, we can get into that. She always had this kind of, like, I don't want to say hippie. But like kind of defeat mama granola like totally clay clay. I brought myself in essential oil. Like, I, you know, vegan, probably totally she, I remember when she first showed up like the descent. We're talking about the descendant circuit, where she just I kinda like became a serious actor. And she was wearing those like to in the formal gown with those tennis shoes where she had the Toto's toast shoe's toe. Yeah. You guys know what we're talking about. Get into specific type of person that buys in wears, the rice shoes, open that is the kind of person, first of all that sharing Woodley used to be. I don't know that she is anymore. It's interesting tending, maybe not be a little less of that. Yeah. So early on in her Instagram. Right. And still to a certain extent, but more early on lot of political stuff Lada protests, a lot of like long captions about the houses that she felt, you know, totally nationally about would you say that, that has changed recently, I would say it's changed. I mean, you know, she still has like mentioned make laws about women's bodies, which, yes, of course, I agree. And then she has another picture. That's like sea levels could displace nearly two hundred million. So she still has those activists awareness kind of post, but there are a lot more like professional Getty images of her and her promoting big little lies and. Photo shoots and some makeup behind the scenes life, I think more than anyone else on this cast has bought into like the on Genuity light were fun like behind the scenes makeup like working with these stylus promoting the silence Ray Close, sort of like on the scene. Young actress vying actress by Kravitz like to a certain extent does. But not to the extent of being like this is my I make a book today. Like isn't it amazing? Here's who like this is my these are my styling credits. I'm so happy to work with this person. Yeah. It which is like a very specific kind of, like young actress thing, I, totally totally and I think Shalem is kind of the only person on the cast that has really bought into that yet. I mean obviously the older actresses, don't need to because they're past that, but, you know, she does a lot of that lately, and it's a real strong departure from even just like a year ago when it was like all, so fees and no makeup, pictures and pictures with a friend or political pose and things like that. I think. Someone by someone. I mean, like her PR people probably said, you know, there've been a lot of articles lately, people call you out for being kind of weird, and like you play all that. Yeah. And, and I wouldn't say she got to a point where she was becoming like a parody of herself, because I think it's very earnest. Yeah. And, and I don't think people were necessarily making fun of her for, like the Dakota pipeline and stuff. But I think wouldn't you eat clay, you know, you're going to open yourself up to some people making fun of your right? And yeah. And I think I think there's she certainly is still that like hippy dippy, but she absolutely has its edited, right? Her public image just even over the past, I think since the first season of big little lies has yeah, recently evolved to just like being like a Dior fashion event right on the front row. And, you know, just like these very specific kinds of only promo pictures, and I don't know maybe she got some help from some for cast member. Or their PR people because I remember when she was cast in this role being like L that's a weird choice, just because she's so she is. So like hippy dippy, and like activists and seems very free flowing with herself in social media and whatnot. Right. Compared to like the brands that like Ryan Witherspoon in Nicole Kidman. Have like Riley established. Yeah, and I think you're right. And she did used to be so different from sort of their public personas, and she absolutely has changed more into, like like, like in the first season. It was almost weird to see her on a red carpet with all of them didn't belong to be like deserve to be there. But nowadays, it's like, okay, those are like five A-List actresses, right? Which now I don't think that was how it was during season one. I don't think so. So, yes, so we mentioned her standing rock pipeline protests. That was a big was gone series. Yeah. I really was icon. It was incredible. I was like weeks off. He was extremely committed to that. And. Not the again has gone away from that. But we don't see that quite as much he writes right props to her for being committed to that 'cause this is almost kind of, we're talking about how Laura Dern is very like limousine liberal earlier than he's very committed to certain and that's great. And she is using her platform. It extremely effective way. Right. But it's very different than how Shaleen oh uses hers total on the ground she, she really was. She was like holding the flag out here for like weeks and weeks. Tying to a tree. Yeah. You know, again, both ways are good, right? Or using their platform in effective ways. But yeah, extremely different. And it's Shaleen is starting to pivot more towards again. Like the limousine, the kind of using your platform. Right. It's, it's also interesting because like Lord, both Laura Dern and Zoe Kravitz, our children of Hollywood. And so I'm sure they've always had that kind of edited sense. 'cause they grew up shirt parents who had to deal with that. And they grew up in the spotlight and whatnot. So it I do feel like when I look at Shaleen, and I look at her Instagram. I mean more so like a year ago, rather than how it is. Now, is it was very relatable. And just like, yeah, I know that kind of girl, I know her. So, so we talked about with all the other cast members how much they buy into this big little lies sisterhood. She'll push with Zoe it seemed like less than the I keep saying, like the older cast, members the like bigger A-List cash stores shapeliness, similar Zoe where like totally. It's less of like a super constant push. Right, and more, just like engaging with it in a fun way. Exactly as much as they're expected. Right. So obviously, like Shaleen and Zoe are both very popular actresses. But these women as in like, Nicole Reese, Laura Dern. And I guess Merrill, but like not yet, but they're like on another level. Right. You know, they it's their project too, right? With some of the others, you know, it's Zoe entailing aren't executive producer this, like they don't have ownership over this quite so much. Right. So it's more just like this is a project that they did. And right. Which is cool onto the next one. And like, obviously, you know it's extremely popular and it's to their advantage to be promoting. It totally as they go viral and people engaged, right? But yeah. We see a lot less of like the left my sister's like right. Right. Sure. And I and I don't want to say it's like calculated, but it like it is. Yeah. You know. And there were rumors that Nicole and Reese had like a rivalry who knows if those are even true. But you, you know, as like a someone thinking, PR wise, you would wanna get ahead of that story. And you would want to be like, no, they're friends and let, let me show you the content. Yeah. Sure. Yeah. Yeah. I mean every time anyone posts a picture them together, it's an automatic headline Sony for any pushing of this narrative is a good idea. Yeah. So during season two I have a few things that we want from shale store. First of all hot rugby player boyfriend. She was dating Ben Volodya believe this his name. It is unconfirmed whether they're still together has not posted a picture of him in a long time. This is what I would like to see from Shalin more pictures with her hot rugby player boyfriend because they used to post together a lot anymore. He's extremely hot and, and he's extremely why not yet that is. I love that for her for. So we love when actresses and actors date, non actresses, and actors, he adjacent. So I was really into this relationship. Yeah, nobody knows if it's still happening. I need confirmation. I don't know. That's I think it is. I think it I know I'm optimistic for them do their thing. We need to see from away. No, it's not. No wait. Wait, wait. They're not dating. I looked. I did a lot of restrictions, John Simcoe. That's a fashion designer that she had a partnership with which are we? Sure. Yes. Okay. As far as I know. No, no, no. I believe you. Well, see this is why when you. The other thing we need to see foreign season two so this week Amelia. Yeah. May all about. She is seen. Oh, yeah. She has seen Susan to a big little lies already the first few episodes or I just the first one. Yeah. We'll have aired by the time this episode comes out, but I have not yet seen it all heard about is how bad schilling, we will these wages in the show, that was all a million south that I was like, wow, it must be really bad. It's bad. So then I started looking at Lyons, Instagram. It's not a wig, okay. And I was very dubious when you said this, and then I went to get images dot com and I searched like through Shaleen Woodley and did it in, like chronological order. She's got the hair lab, spraying good. I don't think it's a wig, just bad banks. So when they were shooting this last spring, it was like March, April twenty eighteen yeah. She had these bangs. Yup. They are the bangs that are on the show. They look, yes. They'll various. Fortunately. Yeah. So she posted this picture in March. And it was a selfie with the bangs at the first thing I saw when I looked at this post was this comment from an extremely Muser, but I'm gonna read it anyway. Those banks are a crime against fashion. Hopefully they aren't featured in the new season of big little lies. Bad wigs bad banks. Always take me out of the moment. She could be having an amazing dramatic scene. And all we think is those banks. Okay, little appears to be pretty much. That's true. Not never mind. Never know why. Well, I mean, like you know, I they were just a little a little greasy a little stringy and what have just loved to have like, you know, maybe a shampoo before, huff, they're all being very short and very choppy, they yeah, it's just like I don't think it she is great skin. But she's so pale. I feel like maybe a another caller kind of warm her. Right. It's really jet black. Here is really only jet black. Yeah. So, yeah. Just I guess, just confirmation that it is. In fact, her hair, unfortunately, and maybe just some Hadley. Yeah. Alternate styling choices in the future. Right. But truly go back. I could see with, like a chestnut Brown. It looks great now. They've kind of grown out to like bridge, like they don't keep our long bang. Yes. I I'm looking at a picture of her on her Instagram at the big, little lies premier and she's got like this sixty single on she looks great work it. So I like I like the little grown out kind of less. Yeah. So you know things we want from her during season. To maybe back to the more like natural less curated less on new. Yeah. Thing on Instagram. I do love strong makeup looks so this one that she's got on her Instagram right now. It's fun. It's great. I love to see some behind the scenes makeup or you know, I did like sort of like the more honest failing that we got. Yeah. I feel like we'll probably we'll probably get more of it because like she did post about the sea level. And, you know, abortion, which is great and I could see her doing that. And I can also see her, maybe not necessarily posting like whole Larry is clips, but some funny behind the scene stuff, maybe or I don't know. I just feel like we haven't seen all of her personality, and I feel like she's a charming person, and I don't know. I, I'd love to hang out with her. Give us more salient. Also, you know, more hot rub your player boyfriend and to that would be great. Thank you want. Yes. All right. That is it for the Monterey five? Thank you so much for coming in. Thank you.

Today we're happy to welcome back below Karachi blow reports and produces cultural coverage for NPR. Blow everyone or so delighted needed to have you back so I want to go to you first Glenn because I've spoken quite a bit about marriage story I've written about it. You can read my review at NPR dot. Org talked to me about how you you feel about this film Well I think it does exactly what it sets out to do which might be a little bit surprising because you have to believe that they would be a couple. We'd have to believe these people would be together and you also have to believe that they would be incompatible four. The reasons specified that each complain about. They can't just assert that their incredible edible and then go from there. We have to see their complaints. Dramatized inaction we have to recognize that they are right about each other in that they just don't belong together another other way film like this could fall into a trap is if it felt like score-settling if it felt like it could be titled. I was right along and certainly a lot of break-up dramatization feel that way this doesn't from You know people are talking a lot about whether or not it's even handed. I just think by it. And what's interesting about the film for me. Is that It is so at kind of a cool all emotional temperature for so much of it and gets kind of legally and processing and you start to wonder. Well this is good. I'm really enjoying this. But where's the Oscar real moment. Where's their big and it happens? And all all of that you understand that the film has been kind of avoiding that big emotional conflict because they have a boarding that big emotional conflict and when it comes it pays off in a in a huge way. So yeah I dug it. How thank you law? Well I have to confess that I saw this within six months of getting married and I found it absolutely terrifying haunted by it ever seen yet At Toronto at the same time. I think that you did that. And I think part of it was that as much as it's also portrait of divorce also seems to be very beautifully observed portrait of marriage ars itself like the daily quotidien things that they do. Whether it's how people you know eat or drink or what they what. Their habits are really going to nerves. All of those details are so finally catch. Watch that I found the radical domesticity of it also partly really terrifying But I I I think the thing that I really left move buys the writing because I mean I think the screenplay of this film is just extraordinary from the opening to the way an ends and how it all started through. And you're a novelist and I'd be curious to know to how you felt about this because it feels like all the right details are underscored in our line to to build the cumulative effect that it has so I I thought it was amazing. They're also both like icons of kind of my generation nation. I feel the millennial star so to see them. Scarlett Johansson and Adam driver as a married couple as a thirty something couple. I imagine I don't know this felt closer to like people who have recently been married and our generation which is partly why it's I think terrifying is on my friends to watch it or not to watch it. Yeah I've said it was terrifying and it is I mean my reaction to it was very similar to that. I think I think it's a beautifully constructed film. And I think that there have been a lot of people going back and forth as Glenn mentioned about sort of is even-handed and people who don't like him and people who don't like her and people who don't like him but think the movie is on his side that to me is kind of reductive has been kind of productive argument about this movie. Because you know I do think that there are some differences in how much kind of emotional weight you get from the two of them. But without spoiling anything I'll just say I think that's because of how it's going for them. I think you're always going GonNa see somebody for whom the process is a little easier and somebody for whom it's a little harder and a little more challenging. Stephen below watched this as someone who was recently married. You're divorced I think people know you're divorced. Tell me how you felt about this film. Well I got divorced from the years. Twenty tend to two thousand twelve and watching this kind of like if they made a movie about the Green Bay packers losing the Super Bowl in nineteen ninety eight. It happened a long time ago. I'm basically over it but I'm still not ready to relive it at the same time. I absolutely loved this movie and Blah. You mentioned the writing and this script is so incredibly important and key to this movie movie because it manages to be really realistic about how a lot of this stuff plays out. I think it's fair to both characters and it is ultimately in and really interesting and I think very true as it is critiquing the system that leaches of these people at their most vulnerable moments. The portrayal of the divorce lawyers in this movie made me just sit there hating divorce lawyers and but at the same time. I think it's kind of fair to them too. But you see how this process is plays out where everybody gets so emotionally invested the lawyers who are kind of treating this as sport and you're just sitting there like Oh man get a mediator her you just see like sacks of money with flapping wings you right but at the same time Steven one of the things you and I talked about. Was I also understand when I watched this movie. Why the Scarlett Johansson character who was the first one to go out and sort of higher? This aggressive lawyer played by Laura dern. I understand why she does. Is that because the the atom driver character. Charlie is more kind of verbal and kind of more arguing than she is. She feels uncomfortable after bill. He's a theater guy she thinks of herself as you know. I'm an actress and he's a director and it feels you can tell in her head. He's sort of the smart smart one or had there's a power imbalance in our hat right and in her head when they argue she's at a disadvantage. So you understood. I understood why she wanted to go out and get a lawyer who is aggressive. And there's a really interesting piece in slate where an actual divorce lawyer talks about this. This film and how realistic a lot of it is and also kind of talks about how. It's sort of difficult for her her to watch it because she feels like. Do we really come across like that. narrator yeah so what she didn't but what she didn't say was nothing would ever get this different recall. What struck me about Laura dern character whose skull Johnson's Lawyer is that when they first meet. She says to her after sitting on the couch and kind of throwing off your shoes and kind of getting getting really cozy like which is going to have a time to talk. She says you know part of what we're going to do here. Tell your story and I thought that was a really interesting idea to send so much of what we've we've been talking about. It seems to me more broadly culturally especially when it comes to gender dynamics is like when do women's stories get heard. Do they tell their story. And their this element went of this macarthur genius grant. Winning Feeder director actor played by Adam driver already a large tall figure. You know I think that moment is really moving that of course she wants to finally feel heard and that idea of like who's heard and who's not I think is conveyed while yes it's weaponized by the divorce lawyers. I also thought it was really beautifully. Beautifully articulated by that idea. I'd argue that. It felt like a little bit more interesting. If we weren't clear that Adam drivers character was good at what what he does. But getting that Macarthur Genius Grant kind of tells us what the movie wants us to think about his art. Also it would be interesting if maybe Scarlett Johansson isn't a great actress. I mean like there's something something about that that I i. I like a little bit more ambiguity in that I think would be enjoyable but we keep saying you know devastating terrifying. There's humor in this movie. You don't cast merit weaver for like a blink and you'll miss her one scene charlatan. Hanson joins insist cast Julie Hagerty as as Scarlett Johansson mother without knowing okay. We need to step step off the gas every so often and just allow this. Allow these people to breathe as this relationship is dying. I think it's really important to note like you said Gun. You don't WanNa get too caught up in how wrenching this movie is because I ultimately found it enormously Cathartic and enormously in a strange way enjoyable to the point where yeah. I've been sitting here you know it's on Netflix. Already Netflix and I'm so glad it's on Netflix. Because everybody can see it at once and talk about it. I'm actually thinking about seeing it again. Like just like sitting down on and watching it again. See that one coming right like you would think so. Triggering it's painting some painful spots but it ultimately is a very very entertaining movie with a lot of really wise thoughts on a subject That is Not Dear to me but close. It's also just really I find it. Visually just very warm. I think it has this grainy film star quality to it. It looks kind. Anybody else felt about this as well. But I mean the way that it it is both also severely a pleasing film to watch and additionally I love the way that you mentioned Glenn it has a lot of fun. It has a lot of fun with New York versus La sure which I have to say that is like an ongoing constant discussion in some. You know whatever people always talk about that comparison but I felt this movie had the most fun with it and did a lot with it because that's one of the central questions as one one character wants to move to La. The other has wanted to stay in New York. And so there's theater and there's TV and it's you know people on glasses as soon as they're in La. And then. Clint people all. I have like lots as and it's just an interesting way that it plays with that. This film is also exceptionally well. Cast because when you cast Laura dern and apart there's already some momentum we already they kind of know who that character is same thing with Ray Liotta just the minute you see him and Allen all of course there's so much that's going on where it's taking our preconceived notions and not exploiting them but sort of using them to produce the story. They don't dwell on it a lot. But there's a scene where you the competing divorce lawyers are kind of chumming it up in the hallway because they know each other because they're constantly going to battle with each other and you get how it becomes a sport to them one of the things that the real divorce lawyer and the sleep peace talks about an answer. A question about is what about this part where the lawyers are all having this very intense battle all and then they break for lunch and it's kind of like okay. So what does everybody wanted to have for lunch. And the lawyer basically said like that made my blood run cold because that is sort of what happens. It'll be like everybody fighting and then kind of are we going to get pizza for lines often. Just say that scene is one of the scenes in watching it a second time because I did watch it a second time which I find. You know it's it's it's a really powerful film and it's equally powerful to me at. I felt the second time the scene that Linda you just mentioned. It's the scene where the lawyers are going to just very generically. have their orders orders and talking to very but the couple like Adam drivers confused about what to order has now to be ex wife who turns and two picks up the menu and says I'm GonNa Order for because I know what he likes and I felt like the way that the film to me left the ambiguous is that if the divorce industrial complex had not intervened with this couple have stayed together. Some how would this would. These arguments have been less weaponized. I felt like that's the thing that the film also does a really smart job of leaving open ended Showing us this and yet also showing there are very legitimate grievances that they needed to resolve and address one of the things that I find most heartbreaking about the story and one of the reasons. I think it's so difficult is that I think a lot of the reason why they are. Separating is just they want to do different things that are not compatible. It's not necessarily early and I think you'd get this by the end of the film. It's not necessarily that. He is bad or she is bad but she wants to live in. La For her acting career. He wants to live in New York for his theater career. That's where his theater company is. They have a child who cannot simultaneously live in both places. That's going to end badly for somebody if if not for everybody and so. I like the fact that that's kind of where the the biggest incompatibility lands. I also really admire and appreciate the fact that they start this film with the two montages that were in the trailers which are her talking about the things she loves about him and him talking talking about the things he loves about her. which kind of steep sue in the understanding that these are decent human beings who have loved each other? I think that's a very smart script and direct to`real decision to begin with those very sweet. You know where you see. These flashes of a marriage that was successful judges so those are that a seven and a half minutes of the first seven minutes of the film. Are Those love letters. Essentially to each other about what they love which is amazing in the sense that like a film about divorce as you said the steep Syrian that for the first almost eight minutes is quite amazing direct decision to I think and then it comes back to those letters in some way I found. I'm an amazing. Actually Yeah and of course I always appreciate a film that has a little Stephen Sondheim and this one does And you can read more about that in any number of places places after you've seen the movie but But we won't spoil that right this minute.

The Oscars Gift Bag Includes $225K In Swag! Would You Accept It?

"The american boy on kiss. Fm the academy awards last night. If you missed it best. Supporting actress young. I think is the correct way to say it For minora minora. I heard two different ways. Actually on the telecast so manati or or even differently. I think one of the voiceover packages but she was really cool. I spoke to her and she had made a comment about having a crush on brad pitt. Who presented her award S and she said yes. I do and i plan b's the name of the company that made the movie and she goes. I think he owns it so she was really excited after all. That's what stood out. What were some of your favorite moments listening. So there's some crazy fun facts from the oscars that kind of like blew me away. Because i think at this time last year we didn't even know an award show like the oscars was going to happen next year. Because last year's was in february it was weeks before the shutdown so he got like a normal quote unquote last year this year. They're saying they cost forty million dollars to produce what we just watched last night. What and on you have forty million to produce. There's only one hundred and seventy people there. They all had to get crazy. Cova tests like three in a row and then even like via the event and the oscar gift bag is what blew me away. Two hundred and twenty five thousand dollars for each of these bags all the in value including an inclusive vacation to this beautiful boutique hotel off the coast of sweden Two hundred and fifty dollar meditation headbands of three hundred and sixty dollar acupuncture device like just like fancy fancy over the top stuff. Which i think doesn't get one of those back. I believe some believe this or not. I believe some of the nominees. Don't accept it because you have to pay tax on that. don't you know. Yeah why wouldn't you have to pay tax on the value so think about it. Two hundred and whatever thousand. You're paying on that. So i i many people would say. Thanks but no thanks. I'm not paying my gift. Card from the irs. As well when they give it to you. That is so crazy to me but it what you re. It really was one of the cool things for me to see. Last night was for example. Laura dern she was talking to the actor category and she was speaking about me and then she was feet away from them at a very quiet room where she could look them in the eye and with great nuanced talk about their work and what she admired in all of their work and i thought that was very cool to see it was it was very. It was a personal touch and it didn't end. I thought they switched it up last night to. Obviously that didn't end with best picture. They did best picture and then they went to actress. Actor right The best supporting actor winner was daniel. Kalou and he he. He basically told us how he got there. how he got here to the planet and here's part of his speech. I'm going to get back to work. She's they morning because tonight. I'm not gonna celebrate. Celebrate life with breathing will walk in. It's incredible it's incredible. It's incredible my mom that they had sex. It's amazing johnson. Here you mean so happy to be alive. And they cut away to his family. His mom and his sister think he's sister was shocked. His mother equally shocked. I think when when he said that. And i saw him afterwards to and i asked him you know. Was there any more detail you got that. We just made that statement. Most of us don't generally think about our parents doing that. Even though that is the essence of how we arrive but we don't often put it in those terms. Do we know he don't. But i thought it was so genuine and just like in the moment and speaking from the heart. I guess whatever comes to mind that none. It was funny patty. How about for you. What stood out last night. Would you like okay for me. Best documentary seeing that. Keep popping up on my list like it's almost like my netflix. Was mad at me that i haven't watched it yet. It's what it's going to start spending the things you want. Because it's so upset with you risk if you're wondering why i'm going gonna talk because i have to do the after-oscar show as well. I called killian normal. Know exactly so. I'm way overdress for coming up next to build a minute.

Wed. 3/4 - Laura Derns Goldfish Died

"Hey welcome to these lab. News ride home for Wednesday march fourth. Twenty twenty me. Well I'm just your host Kate Raft. You know one of my favorite things to do when I'm stressed is to just just nose dive into a mountain of celebrity gossip. Like if I just have a room in my house that was filled ceiling to floor with like you know tabloids from the late ninety s until now like Bat. I would scrooge mcduck like dive into that room. That would be my perfect life. Am I rambling now? All right. Let's get to today's topic's Okay F- enough of me rambling. Okay Courtney started opens up about being groomed to be a child bride. Mtv is saying Michel Barton is too boring to be on the next season of the hills. Laura dern Goldfish died tricia pay tosses quitting Youtube Ronan. Farrow spoke out about his father. Woody Allen's book deal with the same publisher that released his book and finally Harry Styles opened up about getting robbed at gunpoint. And we're GONNA listen to some of the clips of talking about it on Stern. Here's what you missed today in the world of Celebrity News. Just a heads up. This next topic is about sexual misconduct with a minor. Courtney Stott in is officially legally divorced from her ex husband Doug Hutchison. I like to call him. Doug welcome to this toilet called Tinseltown. Hutchison toilet called Tinseltown's commemorate the official legal divorced state with her ex. Who married her when she was only sixteen years old He was fifty must up anyway to commemorate the divorce. Courtney took to instagram. And she wrote an empowering essay alongside a photo of them from the day they got married which is just cringe photo because guys she's sixteen in it. That's anyway Courtney wrote quote. I look back at this picture and feel absolutely taken advantage of. I've been scared to even speak up about feeling groomed or being verbally abused during the almost ten year marriage because I was a child and he was fifty when we married. But I'm a woman now and it's time for me to put my big girl pants on and speak on this matter and quote God. That's so heartbreaking. I JUST. I can't believe her parents signed off on her getting married to a fifty year old when she was just sixteen that is truly one of the wildest most upsetting things. I ever had to wrap my brain around like I think about it a lot. I think about Courtney's audience parents a lot every day. I have an imaginary conversation in my head righteous. Go Up to Courtney's MOM Shakur and I'm like how dare you. Why did you do this? To Courtney Love Courtney starred in so much. It's like I feel very protective over her in her post. Courtney also teased that. She's GonNa be coming out with a book which I am definitely going to be. Reading are reported a few weeks ago that Doug also has his book coming out. That's where the toilet called. Tinseltown soundbite comes from because that was in the trailer for his dumb book. Welcome to this toilet called Tinseltown folks anyway. I do also want to read. Doug's book but I don't WanNa give him my money because I think he's a creep. It's GonNa be a tough decision. Maybe I'll try to get it for free somehow. Anyway Courtney closed out her instagram message. By addressing Doug directly she wrote quote and to Doug. I'll always love you yet. I'll always be angry. You've left me. A child. Woman Feeling belittled and confused these things I shall overcome. I wish you well but please don't ever do this to another minor again. It's not right even if apparent signs off. Wait a respectable amount of time before marrying children aren't on your level always love you regardless and quote devastating so Michelle Barton is not coming back for season. Two of the hills. Reality Show reboot because according to sources close to production. She's just like too boring. I think this is really funny. I mean it's good for Michel Barton because being too boring to be on a reality show is literally one of the vital signs of mental health. So it definitely bodes well for her. That she's too boring to be on the hills. I mean it's kind of sad for her bank account. I guess but it's good for general wellbeing like people. If you are trying to be a healthy person you should not go on a reality show. That's just my advice okay. Tmz covered this writing quote sources familiar with the production tell. Tmz Michel wasn't asked to come back for the new season of the hills new beginnings in fact. We're told she's the only one who isn't returning to reprise her role. Everyone else is slated to make a comeback and quote. Tmz continued saying quote the Rezende our sources say producers found misha's storyline a little bit bland and her personality a little boring bottom line. She wasn't bringing much drama to the show and quote also in the same article. Tmz mentioned that Brody Jenner got a raise and he's getting fifty thousand dollars an episode. What like that so much money brody. Who's your aged. And can they sign me? I promise my mental state coupled with crippling anxiety and insecurity is the perfect cocktail to become an MTV Reality Star. Colm My. Gm's are open. Hit me up. I can take Misha's spot. Laura durins goldfish died everybody. Laura dern Goldfish died and we have to take a moment of silence. Okay because Laura durins goldfish was fourteen years old. Fourteen years old a goldfish. I'm I'm I mean. That's that's devastating goldfish a goldfish living fourteen years. That's like that's like a human living a thousand years like it's impossible. I'm pretty sure it's never happened. I've done no research at all but I'm pretty sure Laura dern had the longest living goldfish and and we should all send her our condolences. Laura posted about the tragic loss on her instagram. She said quote. Rip To our amazing Goldfish. We loved so much fourteen years and quote rested Paradise Goldfish. I don't know your name. I don't know if you even had a name but you around for fourteen years and that is a long time okay. That's quite okay so I have no idea if this is real or not because it's about Tricia pay toss who I do not trust at all. But apparently famous youtubers Patricia Pay. Toss is quitting youtube. At least that's what some of the headlines are saying. Today she posted video about the whole thing. I'll play a little clip of it here. So first and foremost Quitting Youtube retiring from Youtube. Listen on metering on that I am quitting youtube and that is not really ally. It's Youtube is no longer might priority. So this is for the first time I've ever said that where. Youtube is not priority and it's for a multitude of reasons. I've always I will never stop doing youtube. And that has one hundred hundred truth. I like the platform. I like watching. You inspired videos like I'll do videos but I don't want to. I was stressing about. What am I gonNa do what? I'm going to make a half of course every single day like I was stressing about it definitely wasn't making. This was my lowest income. So there's definitely no money would've Asian as far as user wasn't really view motivation so basically. She's saying she's going to focus. More on Tick Tock into only fans because she makes more money from that and that she's still going to do youtube as a hobby but she's stopping posting everyday to her youtube channel. She also said she's going to focus on her podcast that she's been working on. I personally think that she'll probably go back on. Listen continue posting everyday to youtube at some point just because she does just say these big declared of things and then she will change her mind about them. Sometimes she just says things for clout like I said before I can't trust TRICIA pay toss. She does so many publicity stunts like remember that time. She married someone she was like. I'm getting married. And she posted all these teasers about her marriage and then she ended up like it was a wedding between her and a cardboard cutout of Brad. Pitt like this. Who were working with here. So take everything she says with a grain of salt anyway. If you're big TRICIA pay Toss Youtube Fan. This might be a hard day for you.

He went on her Howard. Stern's show and finally got a chance to tell the whole story in his own words. I'm just going to play you some clips from the interview. Let's let's go through it really quick short cross the street and then they cross the street and I'm like sake this is bad and then across the street again and then they cross the street again. I'm like because I think that's corrupt so the guys like hey. Can we talk to you for a minute? And there's nobody around so I'm like is your heart pounding. Yeah Yeah. So I'm like sure and He's like do smoke weed and I said no and he goes. Do you want some weight? Thought now and then he was like well if you go on you and the old kind of gathered around me. This was something. I've been a little bit pissed off about is 'cause I've filed the police report. So then of course. It goes in the press and everything and they wrote. There was only one guy so I'd like to clarify. That was more than one guy. Everybody knows there was more than one guy. It wasn't just one guy. He was surrounded. That actually sounds insanely scary so the story starts escalating when one of the people robbing him asks him to pull out his phone. The guys like unlock you found and The other one like pulls his show up and he's got like a knife sticking in his in his pants and I'm kind of thinking like I said like I com. So Harry styles doesn't end up unlocking his phone. He manages to get away he just takes off running. I love the part of the interviewer. He talks about how he says. Usually when I'm out and I'm walking and wearing running shoes or like workout clothes. But he admitted that he was wearing corduroy flares and some nice shoes so when he had to run for his life he just like was in uncomfortable. Shoes while doing it honestly. This whole thing sounds so scary. I'm really glad that Harry styles is okay. I'd also love to see a picture of his corduroy flares outfit. It sounds really cute. Harry your heroes.

Ronin made his statement to the publisher via an email exchange with Michael Peach. Who's the Chief Executive Hatchet? The New York Times obtained those emails and publish them. Ronin wrote quote your policy if editorial independence among your imprint does not relieve you of your moral and professional obligations as the publisher of catch and kill and as the leader of a company being asked to assist in efforts by abusive men to whitewash. Their Crimes Ronin continued writing. Quote as you and I worked on catch and kill a book in part about the damage. Woody Allen did to my family. You were secretly planning to publish a book by the person who committed those acts of sexual abuse. Obviously I can't in good conscience work with you anymore. Imagine if this were your sister and quote the New York Times spoke with Mr Peachy. Pretty much defended their choice to publish. Woody's book.

Partying with the Monterrey Five

"Hello. And welcome deadline. Vani birds, entertainment, and pop culture, podcast. I'm just fanfare senior writer in here really Miller, Vanity Fair senior Hollywood writer. Announce a pop culture, entertainment and celebrity from the past week from the professions, Kate Middleton and everything in between and Josh man- about Manhattan recap to the incredible events. He attended recently, the big little lies premier in the CFDA awards. Okay. Let's start with the big little lies premier which. It took place last Wednesday. Devastating to me that Julian, I do this together like Audrey Hepburn Elvis, Presley costumes or something I feel like we could have gone all out and really just made it into our, like wedding or something. I feel like I'm nervous to say too much the episode. So they screen the first episode where Lincoln center you. Yeah, sorry. Yeah, that's a scene. So it was at jazz at Lincoln center. Really kind of over the top Suare which I guess you must when you have Meryl Nicole and Reese, all in attendance as well as obviously, Laura Dern, Shaleen, Woodley and Zoe Kravitz, the whole squad was there under scarves guard all the men at him Scott, all the kids, I am Aballah z like the whole squad transition lenses transition lenses. I have to mention his moment in the he has a very pivotal, not pivotal, his very intriguing seen in the first episode, but I feel like you're going to be very scandalized by no, you're going to be very excited to discuss. But yeah, I also just can't believe Julie that we've been doing this podcast long enough that because I feel like when we the big little lies season one was airing we were so excited about talking about it every week. And it's just funny to me now that art season two. I can't wait to discuss episode making me very sentimental, but yeah, so it was in this kind of big screening room and there was sort of you got in, there was a big step in repeats, Evaristo, taking photos in front of that. And I kind of I wrote up in the elevator with Andrew rannells, and he was with our former in the limelight friend of ours Zonta who played the on gossip girl who we interview on the pike cast, and we reminisced about how fun that podcast. Episode was, so she's great loves his, Ana says, Zahn, Andrew were there. There's all sorts of like HBO celebs like people who are on their other shows, my friend was very excited to see the actress on the dues who she loves I saw the broad city girls, Alana and Abby, Jonathan vanass from queer eye, who was on a cried. And I don't know what happened. I thought page six item about it. I didn't read it. So something. I feel like he's always. Grease outfit was some sort of like sequined dress with like kind of a provocative top. Yeah. You look great. But, but he was I felt bad because he was kind of immobile. And then but I think that just shows the power big little lies that injury or no. You get yourself to this premier right? Well, I was just impressed. Because usually at these premieres, even of movies, you don't see so many talents. That's unaffiliated with. Yeah, I'm skipping ahead south wanna get into the screening, but also some intriguing celebrities kind of showed up under the radar not doing the step and repeat or kind of any photos. So when we got to the party after the screening, maybe like an hour and Paul Rudd arrived, I don't really know what his association would be other than that. He's friends with Recife think they didn't movie together friends. Oh, yeah. Good call, but also didn't they do that, James L Brooks? Movie together recent Paul Rudd right that we all probably try like. Like I can't even remember the name some. But anyway, and then he made a, this girl near me was so excited to see Paul. Rod, he looks great. I mean who doesn't love Paul Rodriguez? But she kind of she started texting her mom, and almost like shriek gang, and then I really thought she was gonna lose it, because he walked over to say hi, to Adam Scott, and Alexander Skarsgard, who were having a conversation. So the three of those Maduro kind of in a little huddle together, and she just like could not keep it together that Paul, Rudd, Adam Scott, scars got ran this group together of like her desired, man. And then Donald Glover was also they're all under the radar chilling with Zoe Kravitz. I guess close so he was kind of at her table. Hanging out there, too. Yeah, there's kind of a lot more celebs, Michelle Pfeiffer. But she's not random, because she David Kelly. Right. Exactly. But she looked. Sunning. She looks great like she walks around and it's like she's walking on air. Will I love your surprised by that? I just always assume. Yeah. Incredible. She's Michelle Pfeiffer. And so then the, the party was kind of like the nicest bar mitzvah, you could ever imagine. They had all these stations set up for different activities. You could do. So there was, I the, the sort of portrait, they had these kind of three women who draw quick sketches of you. So everyone is waiting there than there was like, really classy like copy of it, the woman the woman. Said, no one's asked her more questions than me. I just grew. She's trying. She's trying to. I keep distracting her. I asked how, how many she doesn't a night does her hand hurt? Right. The end of the night is easier to do men or women. I mean, I've had a glass of wine or two, and I was just so intrigued to know everything there is no cause, also the there were so many people crowded around to get these portrait's, and they were just going through one by one and I mean it's they do a great job. There are amazing. I was like, by the end of the night, you must have to ice your hand, and she was like, you're so sweet to say that. Feel like I definitely more chatty with them than anyone. They they, then they probably wanted. But then there was also kind of arm tattoo situation where you would like stick your arm into this thing, and they would paint it. I didn't do that. There was like a sleeve could you get like a full suite? I was very confused. And then there was photo booth which is standard for these kind of things, there was a two makeup chairs. Neutrogena was sponsoring C. You could. I know I was that made me miss you more than anything 'cause I mean he's parties, Julian, I went to and a few others, I feel like we've gotten a little touch of it's so fun. I love amid touch up. And then there was all different obviously, like food orders that also forgetting their other kind of crafty type stations you could go to as well. They really just went all out and that was in everything I'm describing was in kind of the initial room, then you went through the main room and it was kind of this beautiful tiered space anyone. If you've happened of scene photos of it or been there, it's kind of wild. It's almost like an auditorium space, but each floor people can go up and stand on to mingle so you can kind of look, up and see the celebrities, as they mingle up on the different tiers, which is kind of interesting but Merrill was definitely life of the party holding core. I wouldn't necessarily expected. I mean, I know I know she's fun. I didn't know she would wanna like stay the night and hang, but you definitely did. She like Kraus's ING with. She was near wreath. Recent herbals kind of holding court. Nicole did not stay for the party, which was disappointing. She must have kind of ducked out shortly after the screening, she was with Keith urban Meryl brought her daughter. So she was around hanging and Reese, brought Eva her daughter who we've seen other big little lies parties. And I always think that's really sweet. And then Eva, I always kind of I feel like Eva must be like, I feel like I wish she could bring her friends at hang out, you know, and then Shaleen was dancing up a storm with Ziggy, the guy who plays her son, and Zoe was a little more low key issues like sitting at that table Dong lover and everyone else. Laura Dern was definitely in the mix with Reese to I don't know, people really going like Andrew Reynolds, when up to Meryl like people really take Merrill, has to do a lot of there was a line to like, go greet Merrill this. Like she's having she was having a great time. And she was all people as soon that she knows on some level, but it was definitely to me, like you pay your respect summarily. You know what I mean? As it should be. But it but it was just like I don't think it's like she can just chill totally. What was the five like the decor leg? How would you describe it was there any sort of team, there was a lot of bright color floral situations going on? They were going for maybe a spring theme. I would say no one is ever a party planner with this way of describing. But I just they didn't necessarily do I almost was hoping they were going to do more, like show themed decorations. Maybe California visuals from the show. Visuals from the characters. I dunno name plates. There was nothing really like that. But then my night ended towards the best way could I think, which is with the two boys play? Nicole Kidman Alexander scars guards, sons, the twins, the best possible story heard from Josh the next day I was in the corner, and I found myself talking at the end of the night to this guy and turns out, he's the father of the two twins were running around. This is probably his five. He was nice. I feel like anyone whose kids are like in the industry like this. You know, he he's like he's all about his kids, but he so yeah, his sons are in the show, obviously, and they in Merrill, plays Alexander scars guards characters mother. So she's had a lot of interaction with these boys and scenes, and I don't want to give way too much. But there's a very pivotal scene in the first episode. I think it's fine to say that is Meryl Nicole Kidman and the two boys. And the two boys are on one side of the table and Maryland colour on the other, and it's kind of a long scene, and they have to react to lengthy Maryland. Nicole Kidman monologues. Q even imagine to be there as they're probably like ten eleven. I don't know. And then you're acting opposite Meryl Streep in col- Kidman in this kind of show-stopping dramatic scene, that's something most actors would die for. For. And then right surprised these actors must be good for like a show runner or to trust them anything. So I said to the dad, also, I wanna know that this was like eleven thirty almost all the other talent had left. But I loved the boys were still there and hanging out. And so I say, you know, I can't get over that scene, and your that must have been so special for them to have this amazing moment with Maryland, Nicole, they'll be able to show their kids, some day, I was like really going over the top. And he was like, I know he said, Meryl's just been so wonderful the day before their first day of filming marijuana to really connect with the boys, so she took them like for fun day together. And they played a Jenga, and they played all sorts of board games. And you know Merrill, basically it was like their family on that. And I was just thinking to myself, Meryl Streep, taking you out for a day of Jenga when you're. You know, ten or something does that. Register how crazy that is probably not. But like some day they're going to realize how wild that was and how it's a little disappointing to me that it's all downhill from here for those boys, right? Like what can it's nothing. I mean, I feel Meryl could auction off at one of these can charity auctions afternoon of Django with Maryland. It would go for half a million dollars or something. Yeah. I mean, we would rob a Bank. Yeah, it's wild. It's so wild to me. But yeah, I know I was like that was just so funny to me, then they Nicole is, I mean, a call obviously has the benefit of having had all last season with them. So they said, Nicole's been wonderful. The hold time in terms of like getting to offset time, and they go to Nicole, how's it seems like a law. I don't know if all TV shows are like this, but for some reason, a few times came up times during the premiere to that they all love doing things outside of sat like their bowling trip, and there, and they go to each other's houses, a lot seems like a little unusual. Right. Well, it's because it's like so pre technolology it's like a little nineties or. Playing mini golf with Zoe Kravitz or something. But these these kids, have it so good to be on this show and get all these kind of lake hall of fame actresses to work against. Can't even imagine. So did anyone speak before after the screening? They do. Oh, yeah. This. Thank you for bringing us up. So Casey boys, who had a programming HBO introduced the whole episode. They played the first episode Dan, he kind of shouted out the Monterey five, which is the five women and Meryl. And then I guess she's on the five, but he made a point of noting her obviously, in the men of the show than I guess he introduced recent coal. So they came out together to actually introduce the episode. And there is such a funny height differential between the two of them. They play in the first episode, the height differential between Reese and the other characters in a funny way. But Reese, Nicole will definitely were holding hands. They are, you know, they've talked about how they are like best of friends doing this together, and that it's such a kind of female driven project. Andrea Arnold director for season two and then they played the episode. I always find it awkward at these. Premieres though. When people cheer for each name, when it comes up, you're stressed out, the to come up, and they're not gonna get this much almost everyone there had someone there for them. So even the kind of like smaller characters and their names, come up, sometimes they would even get louder receptions. I also was very interested. I had the perfect bird sort of, like I was in the very front of the kind of balcony things I could look right down and see the actresses, and it went in a row or column. I should say recent Eva like everyone against the I'll Reese, Nicole. Yeah, recent Eva Nicollin. Keith Merrill, Laura Dern Shaleen Zoe in order, and it was fun. I mean obviously that's pretty much works out to like their screen time or whatever, but it's just funny to see it. So drawn. Out like that. You know what I mean? But they were all acute and turning back and forth to say hi, to the people in front of them are behind them that kind of thing she Leinen Zoe came in or they seemed very tight. I would say chalian look rage was going for kind of like a nineteen sixties vibe, with, like the big hair and everything, you know, to check it out with Andrea Arnold director was there a difference. Did you sense any sort of difference between like the tone or static? Oh film criticism coming into the podcast. Let's see, I, I would say it's very similar to season one I loved it the first episode obviously, the only one I've seen, but it almost feels like a turbo charged version of season, one if that makes sense I love that, that makes it sound really good. I'm excited. Yeah. I would say Meryl adds a whole new dynamic, though, because she's in a lot of the first episode she is. I think this is been in the trailers and stuff. I think it's fine to say she kind of comes in as a very not necessarily the villain, but she sort of the adversary, at least in the first episode and the sense of she's trying to figure out what happened to her son. You know what, what this kind of situation was where he could die? I you know, kind of sussing around with, like Nicole in recent everything. So I'm curious sort of how they're setting up this season. That it's almost like Meryl is the driving sort of antagonistic force. If there is anyone who could take on those and maryl- maryl- is doing. I know she's talked about how she had new teeth prosthetic teeth for the role. She also speaking in kind of a different I wasn't expecting this really like she's definitely studied Alexander scars guards, dialect or way of speaking, and it was like doing some sort of version of that. So she's kind of speaking in this, like I don't even know how to describe it other than like scars guardian sort of, I guess Swedish accent. But it's I mean she's Merrill. So she's like perfect and her scenes with Reese are Julie, the best thing I've ever seen like they are so good. She has to extended scenes with Merrill that are threes that are just like the most funny moments in the whole episode. I cannot wait. Dern definitely got some like she was almost like a, some of the people, I talked to after, like Laura Dern stole the episode because she gets something really good, comics at pieces. And yet transition lenses has a weird moment. There are some new characters who am curious to see how you feel about. That's all there, including a love interest type possibility for Shaleen and. Yeah. Whatever this is fine at this point reviews will have come out. So everyone can just this is just getting people. More excited excited to talk your power rankings after this episode would be what Marilyn Reese characters together combined the first episode I was like wanting. I wanted just all the extra footage. I wanted any possible Merrill Reese, you could get Nicole. I obviously worship she doesn't. No. She has a good good stuff in the first episode to. It's a little maybe less than I like herself coming down later in the season. You can tell who else is there, Laura Dern. I mean, they're all what makes it so fun. Is that they're also good, and so different? So God, I can't I can't wait to see that though. And then we'll have a real breakdown. No, I know. And I'm curious who you guys are most excited to see. I'm interested in. Fun. I assume I mean this is from this is in my standpoint like my game of thrones like I the session for both of us. I feel like I'm wondering if the kind of cultural obsession will be the same this season. I think it will. Right. No, I've explained it to, if I have male friends were like obsessed with football. This is my football. Yes, I know it, we'll do a fan a fantasy league or something where really betting on the different characters or something. Okay. In last night, you went to the CFDA awards. Not, not as exciting in the sense of there was no episode allies played at this event, but it was a CFDA awards. It's like the fashion Oscars where they give the awards for the best designer of the year for men's and women's wear my personal highlight the Olsen twins one for excessively designers of the year. And if one six times did you realize that there, six times, the FDA winners? What was their speech? Like their speech. I was sort of out of body for their speech. I guess this is I, there's something in me where the Olson's will always just have a really important. They mean a lot to me. But it was a very brief sort of. They seem bashful like they didn't want to be up on the stage, accepting an award like it was very hard even to hear them. They were speaking, very awfully almost like they were just whispering to each other. And it was just like the most straightforward, you know, thanking everyone and it might have been like a twenty five seconds speech. I feel like they just anything. They do like that, though, to me, just as their enigmatic sort of the steriods sense that they've cultivated or they just don't you don't see them. You don't I don't even know were in the room and it was a pretty intimate dinner set up, and then when they call their name, I was praying that they were there. And then they kind of emerged from one of the tables. The Brooklyn museum. So it was set up in this huge kind of, like, in the middle of the museum. It's a really beautiful space. Jennifer Lopez was given the icon of the year or which is in the past been won by Riyan and beyond say only Campbell, and she looked incredible. A friend of mine told me that like she's been wanting. This is like a big deal, like she's wanting this for years, like she's been actively talking about how this awarded means so much to her. Yes, she wore. Ralph Lauren outfit, it was almost like I guess a crop top situation. It was midriff Baring, and it was like a long, orange skirt, and then sort of very glittery, top, I was hoping she was going to break out into song and San perform something. But no. Like she brought with the speech. She was referencing her personalized making like self deprecating jokes. If you haven't yet read joshes report about being there you should right now. She. She definitely like she cried twice, which I don't know as a little surprise, and people are definitely discussing this after because she one point did a whole like it was a very actress accepting an award moment where she kind of like started to cry and then turned and Tom Ford had presented it to her. And so he was waiting, and she kind of looked at Tom and was like my okay because I think she was worried her makeup running, and then she kind of composed herself. And then turn back to the Mike. And so there's probably ten seconds of silence. It was super dramatic charge up. I except in a word. And then and then she goes, like I said, I wasn't going to cry, which I feel like is the classic line. You know. And then she talked about a rod a few times, because she said, I guess, a Rod's obsessed with home Ford clothing, and she made a joke about how like she thought that she was like indispensable one for him. But like the purse. He really can't live without his Tom Ford kind of funny. And then, and then later, I guess is wasn't about this wasn't a joke about a-rod. But she I thought this was nice. It was sort of self deprecating. She was going over how lake she's about to turn. She didn't say the age that we don't have to say the age out loud. I'm about to have a big birthday coming up because she's turning fifty this year, which is insane for how you good. But she's, she's like she's going on tour gas. It's twenty years since her first album. She said it's very fundamental time for her right now to be winning this award. And she's like so many things have happened. I've had, you know, a bunch of babies a bunch of albums, a couple of divorces, and everyone, like, really liked that. And like she got she got some really good laughter there. I thought that was good. Like she really winning. Yeah. And she had a great smile. When she said it, she talked about her different sort of trademark. I didn't even know some of these different things she's known for wearing different famous dresses, hoop earrings. Definitely seemed like it meant, you know, you can tell like really means a lot someone on their accepting of these, like it was a long speech. She seemed very kind of just like in the moment, enjoying it she dedicated it to her a makeup artists and hairstyles defers passed away, which also which was when the moment that she kind of had to stop for her crying. And the person actually very moved by the end when she. Talked about a rod, her two kids and a rod to kids, and how they've all really shown her like true beauty is from how they loved her. So that was a great moment when she was in the they took photos of for after. And Tom Ford Neyroud had to like help with the train of her dress, which I thought was cute. But other than that, it was a lot of models like the deeds, the Emily Arctic hausky Martha hunt. You know, it's like a huge I was sitting next to a great person to be sitting next to Heidi Gardner from SNL who so funny, she did a skit with going Paltrow weekend update this spring. So I was asking her about that. And she said Gwen was so funny and shell and down to earth like willing to make fun of herself, which we I think some people know but, you know, in that she was like she was like nervous, you know, like it's Gwyneth Paltrow but she was so chill. So, yeah, it was fun. It was a it was a nice sort of like a Monday night is, you know, a little bit. Tense way to start the week. I was at the late night. But it was fun. We had a good time and J lo really brought it. So the only I just was wishing their performance jaylo hosted anyone or so. So the usually have a host ISA Ray hosted it last year. This year they decided not to have a host. So instead they had a few comedians, Hassan menashian and Jessica Williams, who kind of introduced different segments different awards. They were good. I think it's a hard fashions the hard crowd. You know, it's like, they, they I think they want people over. They both look great. But yeah, no host this year. So congratulations to Jennifer Lopez, right? Julian. I mean one over by that speech, it was a good. She Tom Ford is like, have you ever heard him speak? He has a mega like his wife seeking. I know I had no I I guess I've seen him speak before maybe never in person. He just has this kind of in trance thing, cadence. So the way he discusses things, I know he definitely has had some sort of what you call elocution hang or something. It's almost like he was performing, you know, it was very it was very hypnotic. All right. Well, yeah. Those are my two big nights, too. Big nights out on the town. Let's and the with a kind of we need to check in with our, Royal pals and Julie, I need to like get into this with you, because I'm so excited to hear your thoughts you want to do. You want to explain this prince George thing. Yes. Prince George, actually, you better explain it because, you know the context of this more than friends. Vacation. They there's this really weird. I love when these kind of odd prince, George items, come up that are sort of devoid of really any context, and I never really understand how the British papers get their Intel here, but they had a little new cycle over the past couple of days about prince George, sort of, on usually kind of being helpful when the delivery way the people who work at way, troves deliver the groceries to their country house at the Norfolk home. So I guess according to the sign, he has stunned staff by helping out alongside them to unload, the groceries, every time it gets delivered. So sweet. And he greets the van with Dodd William, they're helpful approach has become well known among supermarket staff. They were praised for their constant offers to log in the mammoth food, or a mammoth thrown in there. Like all the like mounds of food. The insider explain love this as a quote, from a source it is, rare for anyone to ever offer to carry deliveries inside George is always, particularly helpful is the one who asks each time what he can carry for them. He is a very inquisitive child in you be concerned that it's strenuous for him. The source continues, they give him lighter bags it shows how down to earth William is, and that he wants his son to grow up being polite and helpful to others Julie. Is this the most like shining PR store? You've ever heard for a celebrity. Wondering whether Kensington Palace like planted, this as some sort of light in a sense counterpoint to the whole state. Visit good call actually because I do feel like as I said at the beginning, these things come out of nowhere in the sun. So you're like where why how you know? Right. Because I imagine that comes in the balance has anyone who encounters any Royal signed, some sort of conflict out, didn't she -ality agreement. So. Right. My initial thought was maybe it was a waitress employees. But I feel like waitress would wanna lose that accounts waitress. I thought processes you I thought, well, maybe we chose wanted this out there, because waitress was in a lot of the headlines. But I just don't think exactly. I think there's no way if they have a regular ordered there that they would not check or like that, it would somehow be approved. We'll right and they're not sending the newest delivery guy to go deliver this. This is like right dying. I want reality show of the breakdown of who is the, the way troves deliveryman who gets this job and gets the hang out with prince George once a week when he comes into the groceries. Well, right. Because what would your reaction be if you were that delivery guy, you got to the door you expect to be interfacing staff? And instead, it's, it's the future king, and he's like, can I get that bag for you and also? Yeah, like a liability thing do you want to give him the bag like I don't know. I just feel like you'd be. That'd be nervous, even engage. There's someone waiting with us or who's going to get you, God, a sniper with a rifle. Yeah. I don't follow up if any member of the Royal family or Royal, Jason, I guess will add that in was you're going to open the door your, you've ordered your takeout sushi or whatever. And it you open the door who I guess, I've taken this different level. Now, they're how going delivery, man. Who would be person you'd most want to be on the other side of the door. Yeah. What's yours? Does long pas? I haven't seen harshly deliberate over anything. So seriously. Meghan know or k. You think Harry, it'd be the most like palling around. Yes. Yeah. He's he'd have a good joke or two is leave for sure. Kate would just sort of hand you the growth threes. Now, it'd be that George will be fun, Georgia be fun. Georgia, so unexpected. No. Did you ever think we'd get to this point where we would find? I don't know this is like kind of strange gossip item is weird. I kind of agree with you. There was some imagine they have like a binder somewhere of these lighthearted items that somehow they can dispose the dispense, whenever you want. Because also noted, obviously the state visit is going on, now there was all those kind of back and forth with Meghan, and the president and everything. And I feel like this definitely makes things lighter. Right distraction. Look over here at this cute anecdote, right. But yeah, the state visit is over tomorrow and on. Saturday is the trooping the colors event, which I guess they reported this week. Prince Louis will be attendance for so the whole Cambridge squad. But no one is quite sure, if Meghan will. Will make an appearance since she's on maternity leave. Wow. That is something to watch. I'm very what do you think if you had to bet, I think she will go. But Archie are Gino, I think show because of a cool way to like introduce Archie to the public fear? But also that such an intense one where they all look up in the sky and everything, and I don't know they're all not balcony together. And it's like the most dressy kind of, like form affair just feel like maybe that wouldn't be where she would wanna put Archie. Right. But I can see her showing up. I also I think I would put my money on her showing up, but Archie not got him excited. Yeah. All right. So let us know your thoughts on big little is after you watch on Sunday. And I know we're not figure out how we're gonna we'll talk later to cover each episode with you guys. And let us know what?

Well that's fun this is ask. Some are sorta four seventy five and it's especially special because we're also recording the video version and we are going gonna put on our patriot dot com slash brain candy. Because there were some stories that i have to talk about. That require an image for people to look at. So i can't wait yeah. It's very exciting. How're you doing. Well not too much to complain about this week. did have to go to a government office recently. Because my mom is trying to get residency Will not trying. She's she getting residency in costa rica. And i had to take a bunch of forms to get a which. I didn't know a thing i think that's how you say it Basically it's like you take official documents and then you have to take them to the government agency and then they check that it's like legit and they stamp it. And then you can send it off to the costa rican government. Okay took me three days. And i spent a grand total of eight seven hours at this. What was the place. it's it is the. Oh my gosh. I know this the secretary of the state office in downtown. La basically like where you go to any kind of like services which means it's dead smack in the middle of skid row so it's like it was a it feels like it's very energy draining kind of at least for me like even the dmv is like that. Let's face yes even like it just feels like oh god this is just a tough place to be. And why are the workers always mad. Well this is what. I had to complain about. So i stand. I stand in line. And they have a great system. Thank goodness where. It's all social distancing. I felt very safe which is good. Yeah and i so. I i wait in line. The place opens at ten. I get there eight o'clock in the morning and even getting there two hours early. Because i went there one day i went there on friday and i got there. My mom said get there. Eight forty five because it opens at nine. We'll know with new hours open ten. But i got there eight forty five anyway. I waited in line. I had a client at eleven. So i got i gotta go this. This isn't working. So i had to get out of there at like ten fifteen times and people their hours petar tons of people and so monday. I was like okay. I gotta get there early. So i get there at eight. Am when opens at ten. I wait even getting there. I was forty sixth in line. Give you a little number. Forty six in line. And i got there two hours early so i ended up seeing them at. I got eight. I ended up getting it to the office like to see an actual person at twelve thirty. Then they look through all my forms like everything's great. Meanwhile this has taken me like six months me and my mom would take like months to put together because you have to request documents and then they have to send him from like another county. It is a nightmare. And everything has to be notarized and so she had a document coming from san mateo couldn't read the signature of the person who notarised it comes so they said we're going to have to send this out. It'll take probably twenty four to forty eight hours blah blah blah. But you know the guy was like all hold onto it. I'll follow up with you. I'll take your number and i'll call you okay. Great fun i wait. Wait wait no call twenty hours. I'm like i have to do this because my mom needs these documents bike by a certain date. This is like the last tango. So i go to the office and thank god. They told me like. I don't have to wait in line again. So i'd go to the front and i talked to them. I'm like yeah. Hi was here you know yesterday. And they told me that they were waiting on one of these documents. Look this other form that could help you. Get his name blah blah blah And they go. We don't have that document. And i think that you do. And she's like no we don't we don't do and i was like she was we. Don't keep any of this. I was talking to the guy yesterday. So because you know you're probably not going to be believed are not which is a trigger for you so there yes. Thank you susie. You always see me. There's a wall of people who are who have been helped and they're waiting for their envelopes. So there's like an audience of people who are listening to me. Go no i did. I promise you like this. As i understand what you're saying but this is. This is the packet that i came in here with. I'm pulled all these papers out. There's one missing and you guys have it. And she's like no we. So i kept fighting back and then finally the that woman was helping before and then she was like then this other woman in the back comes out. And she's like yeah. I don't think we have that you really do is. I can do because i was like. I don't know it. Could it be on this. And i just. I just did there because i was like. Okay maybe if. I just stand there they'll eventually go talk to a supervisor or something. Thank god she did. She talked supervisor. Went and got the guy went in the back for like fifteen minutes. The guy who helped me yesterday on his lunch break. I guess he comes back and he goes. Oh yes right here on. Office desk susie. This is the part that pissed me off. Do you think even one person said. I'm sorry man i was like oh so and i was trying to give them the like. Oh so you did have it. Good thank god. Nothing and i was just like okay sarah. Just it's fine just knowing your heart that it's okay that you're right and then are i put for me. I'm a big fan of people. Just taking responsibility just say.

All i need. Is the missing piece. I ikea they have this whole new system for exchanges in returns. And all those parts where you have to do a qr code and you have to scan the qr code and then wait in line. I did that. Thank you ma'am you're twenty-sixth in line. I waited for thirty six minutes after thirty six minutes. I was like. I can't wait this long. For a part and also it was a day where it was ninety one degrees in southern california in the middle of november. What the hell is going on there. And i'm like in a sweater which is wrong thing where we're waiting outside in the boiling hot sun. I'm like i gotta go. This is crazy. I go home. I am home for two plus hours.

How the super pissed off in line. This one total karen is like over. This goes goes into the office and like cut the line and she started talking them. They help her right then. She comes out and she talks to me and she's like you should just go in and they just helped me and what i said i was like no i. I can't do that. My time is just as valuable as those people's time and they've all been waiting. And i can't do that. They'll help you and i was like. Yeah that's a difference for you and me lady and true person who's is first in mine is now second in line because you cut. There's an i you know. But i also wanted to prove a point. Because this lady was like she was just said he says bother me that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. And i hate it. I just manson next in eastern culture. They have similar saying. But it's the reverse where it's like something like the nail that sticks out gets hammered so it's like opposite. I've heard that. Yeah that that's actually. The one that i grew up with is like the the that were good kids. Yeah yeah the yeah. The nail that sticks out gets hammered down or yeah but truth is not that the truth is the squeaky wheel gets the grease for sure. Yes and it makes me so mad. So sorry well. I'm so that's why. Share these things on here. Because i know that my break next and susie will always be on my side and will always be like. Oh i hate that. They were wrong. Yes i love what. I don't hate though and i'm super stoked about well sarah before we were recording. We're talking about. How like if anyone tells you to calm down like It's not effective right. But what is the calm app. Have you tried this good. It's everything i need. And especially i have a very. I mean who doesn't have a very busy mind. i feel like all of our brainiacs. Do when when you're a lifetime learner when you're somebody who just is like gobbling up information left sometimes that same skill can also make it so you can't shut your brain off at night and come up is so great to bring me mindfulness. Yeah he's an calm and helped me get a better night's sleep. I love it because a lot of times. I'm complaining about technology because it does the opposite which you worked up and makes you feel reiji or upset. So i love when technology can do you solid and actually contribute to your wellbeing and so i've been using it for just their playlist their musical playlists. 'cause you can put them on in your office or whatever and it really does oh. I lower tried that yet. I recommend it. They have music but then they also of course have like the meditational programs that you can do like at for example the end of the day. Well you're the one that introduced me to that thing where you like. Listen to staff to go to sleep. Yes i think a lot of people do that are bad. Because i don't like the other thing that's playing on my own thoughts bessie and change out the track. We'll it can really help with anxiety it can help you improve your sleep. Which is crucial.

I've definitely adjusted my spending and the things that are valuable and the things that i you know my stuff for my wellbeing and mental health. Well and it's like i'm constantly recalibrating. I feel like you know you think you're mature and you think you're you've got everything handled and then you don't and so you gotta like for you to it all the time so familiar. Yeah that's true that is bad as maturity right. they're realizing what is my one of my favorite things. I know i'm intelligent for. I know i know nothing. I know nothing well. Here's a story for you for. I mean it's not even a story. it's just a fact. Which is the official. Instagram account of the pope liked a picture. Let me pull it up for you. Yeah of a woman in a little tiny eighty biddy. I guess you'd call it a uniform school uniform with her buns hanging out sarah. Can you see the picture. Oh my god. I can't wait to see. Oh my good. Oh he's definitely got only fans account subscription to someone this one. I'm just supporting somebody get. I'm supporting the arts. I'm really helping. Somebody tried to pay for med. School said the verified official pope account. I think it's called franciscus like this image. If you're on patron you can see it. Di- stockings what are those things called the whole damian she's garters she's definitely getting a suspension for that. She's definitely going to have to put on her uniform. That skirt is not regulation link. Now obviously. I don't think that the pope runs his own instagram or anything but like i know what happened what i know. I have a theory. Why into the person who runs. The pope's instagram account has multiple accounts that they run day did not switch off between the pope's account and their personal account and he thought we're gonna assume it's a he so you think that the pope's like social media manager is just sort of like logged in but also logged into their like dog pictures and whatever. Yeah come on. This was a they. That 'cause i i've seen there was there was a politician recently. There's i've seen this like pop up on twitter where somebody will will like make a statement and then logged in from another account to like yet comment on their. Yes comment on their own. Got out right. Yes and forgot to log out. And it's a comment from the same person's account and it's like we'll say something like this about. Wow this person they're talking about for all and then somebody also comment forgot to log out of your other account And so i think this happens and like so this i would hurt it fast because i guess i'm naive because i don't think of instagram as a place where you even see these images but i guess for a lot of people. That's why they're on instagram. I think it's one of those If your if you click on a few pictures your feed change show. Yeah i knew when my ex was like right there discovery discovery was i was like i don't even looking at that is interesting. Well eat. Because i don't. Maybe i'm being unfair but i don't think that the pope is into women usually. I think you're right that i think i think you're right. I mean maybe that's just or a sexual or but have you seen that. Show the young pope or the new but the young pope or maybe it's called the new pope. Yeah it's called the new pope and then there's a second one young yet. Is this the law one. yes yes. Aw get goosebumps just with because it's like it's fascinating. Yeah because then you're forced to see them as like actual human being. Yeah yes yes yes. And then you see just like and i know that that's an exaggerated version of it and everything but you know. I had a friend who worked still have. She's still a friend who worked in washington c. and worked like four government agencies. And i was asking her like. Oh what was that show. That was house of cards when that was like before the scandals and everything when that was still located watch It's okay now because they got rid of whatever. But i was like. Oh my god this shows so good. Have you watched it. And she's like no. I can't because it hits. It's too close to what really goes on there. And it's like i can't and shit they're getting murdered and like yeah output. Anything passing these. Yeah i agree. And i know that feeling like you know when something is what you do every day. It's not a very good escape to then watch something about it right right. I guess the pope needed a little escape to yeah. I don't know what god but she got juicy bootie. she's super cute. I mean he has been taste if he did like it. I mean yeah. Oh my god i wanna know more about that. Is this thing. People are like that people called him out on it do they. Are they going to say something. I think it's like they're doing it. Be haitian gatien. Oh yeah if somebody gets fired then. It's definitely what i said it was. I'm sure it like who the fuck is running that account and anyway okay moving on if they want. If in your job they can come take over my account. Because i'm fine with them like in budi pick up right birthday my feet. Thank you discovery. Page would really get ramped up as you would right now. It's all plants and curly hair thickness curly girl images and therapy means. That's funny okay. Next on my list is. I saw the new york times. The title of the article was something like what europe smell like hundreds of years ago and apparently scientists trying to recreate the smells from hundreds of years ago in london and at first i was like well. That's an odd thing to do. But then when they were describing how they want to include that sensory experience in museum exhibits. I was so into it. Oh that's cool like why when you think about what makes you remember pre plumbing. And we're like well they said some of it is not gonna be pleasant. I thought that might but oh. That's that might well. Here comes to mean right now. You're like oh. Yeah i because i thought about it and i'm like wait. I don't like that because that might create a negative connotation with whatever it is but then i'm like no because it's really soliciting a response some sort of like it's just like an external stimuli that then create some sort of change which then you can label as like bad or good but even that just that feeling and then paired with art like you're getting a more. Yeah i wanna like what is three sixty or whatever experience. What does that word sensory like. Another another one. I'm thinking of flake all encompassing or something. Yeah whatever yeah. I want that even if it's a bad smell because if you are massive immersive yes because if you think about what goes on at museums it really would add to it if you kind of like you were there. Oh my gosh. I can imagine looking at that one. There's a painting. It's like impressionist painting of of streets. Like people walk in the streets and probably paris or london or something like that and it's like a rainy day. Yeah bellas. I'm talking about no okay. Okay but with the sound of rain over the speakers and like a little bit of like the smell the street of like the horse's like klopp and down the street and they're little and then you get the smell of like what that would be like. Ask some fresh rain some street. I'm getting goose bumps. Again i love. That is as you another idea that i love is crate joy. This is genius. Here's the scoop. As i don't even know about this. I know i'm so excited to tell you because you're going to be like no just genius so on this show we've talked a million times about like different subscription boxes crate. Joy puts them all in one place. So if you are looking for gifts or something you know. My friend is into music. You can find a subscription box for them that matches their hobbies and stuff. It's just genius because like there's so many different options now so like if you know someone that's into escape rooms or wigner mystery boxes or whatever it is they will show you them and you can get them for your all the people on your christmas list. Because i was thinking about. How like a lot of us won't be able to see our families for christmas. So we want him get extra special gifts and so this is such a nice way to be personal about it. Yes and i just think and some of those things are at work where you can get a box for yourself and then a boxer somebody else almost like do the same so feels like you're kind of doing it together or like you guys are like. I'm thinking like a barbecue box sharing. Oh you know what. You're some things to connect us more anything you could get cocktails or whatever and then like doom and drink your cocktail. Yes yes so.

Let me see if i have another funny. Oh yeah wait just to finish this museum thing. Because they were saying that like back in the day when they had the great plague They didn't really understand contagion and how things were transmitted to each other and they associated really bad smells with infection. So that's how the sick so they would burn What was it it was rosemary and hot tar to like get a better or whatever smell that they thought would kill the disease and so so many sharply seems like a yeah like an overwhelming smell. I guess overwhelming. Yeah and they would do it so that they would solve the plague problem but then that smell became associated with the plague for people which is what happens and so they're thinking of including those smells in museum exhibits about the plague and they're working with like perfumers and chemists. I love it too. I really love it. It gets cool. You can really get. Do you remember when we talked about why we like the smell of rain and how it was like stuff release. These molecules that were released from the dirt and from like all this stuff. Yeah and we find out like we're just learning like what is like. What are these smells so if you can if you work with say a geologist who's like well what was the dirt and rocks around there that time. Then you can say well. This is what that would smell like if it were to rain on these like. I love that stuff. It's it's i like anything that takes that combines a bunch of different fields to that art overlaps with science which overlaps with nature which like. Everything's connected and i just love that me too. I also read a separate article about a a book. That's coming out about smells and it was saying like how the reason that food smells when you cook it like if you just have a bulb of garlic on your counter doesn't smell but when you cook it it smells. They were saying that the heat breaks up the molecule and makes it so that it can be air airborne and it was saying like that a lot of times we might not notice it but like a stinky cheese can smell like vomit at but were grossed out by it. Yeah because the context is different but they were saying the reason that they smell the same as they both have the same acid which makes delicious but also makes it like smell like puke. Yes but like cheeses. Yeah because we we associate like water on the sidewalk like you said when after rains very distinct smell And i feel like they're just starting to get to the bottom of all this stuff for sure okay. S next up on my lamp. Didn't we just learned that tigers. Love chanel number five to number five. Oh no calvin klein. And calvin klein allure or something like that. I lose a calvin klein. I can't remember. There was some sort of a fair amount of like a some animal. Like a oh yes. Yes and they were using that because they in india they were trying to attract a tiger that had like come into the village and they were trying to get the tiger out and they were in that so lowering right with alvin klein perfume. Yup okay child from brainiac who. It was an article about the the toys that were inducted into the toy hall famous year. Oh cool just super cute. Yeah some of the ones that they inducted. Were sidewalk chalk. Which is adorable. Oh it's about time. Jange made the cut this year. Yes and then. I'm going to put up this picture. This was adult that i had never heard of and apparently is very important to people. It's called baby nancy. Can you see her baby. And the nancy she like. I've heard of baby. Nancy but never seen her. I never heard of her. But i'm glad you have. Because i feel like angry that i never knew there. Was this important doll. People of yeah baby yeah baby. Nancy is her name and I just think she's adorable. And i'm happy for her but i was surprised by the ones that didn't make the cut this year. You know they can maybe next year. It's just like the rock hall. I didn't make the cut for the hall of fame. And i did you and i were both up for it right. Challenged challenged thing. I don't even know we didn't miss that.

The pope and that image and her band. He's like you know that that that funny picture of the pope holding his phone up that everybody's turned into a meme magin or like looking at it.

That is included in many of your favorite desserts fever butts. Give me all the beaver on your dog. At least on my everybody loves beaver july. Right i love you to right themselves Who you how you you know. Dogs have anal glands as we learned yes and so deduct apparently well the like so. When i had a bulldog we always have to take him to the vet to take bo. She's stinky stinky. She smells it. Smells like fish. Yes right like real world sturdy but fish and apparently beavers have the same glands but they smell like vanilla. Wow it is cheaper to melt the but gland a beaver and use that to flavor your ice cream then those actual madagascar vanilla beans. That shit is pricey. I mean it's true. I can't believe that. Were substituting that with and i don't really understand how this business model works because like you said okay. I guess car vanilla can be pricey but in order to get this secretion is the consistency molasses. You're welcome and they. They used the term. They have to milk the anal biden. Yet of course because it's so they have to invest ties these beaver bieber's i was gonna say beaver butts but it's the whole beef and in order to even get a beaver. It's funny so how could this even really be advocates. Not real i. I have so many questions. Do they have a beaver farm. Were there like all the lineup. And they're just like you know taking turn right like milk. A cow is like they're out in the wild and they just like thrill problem online. The beaver like what is the process. This is something that's used frequently. You imagine there's like a beaver farm but that's the thing i'm calling today's real sticks. They use real. What do they what do they do. They have dams out there or we lady. I believe that this is as prevalent as the article would like us to believe. I think it's just maybe for foodies like true foodies who like to try different thing. Maybe it's one of those deals where it's like that coffee that the cat thing whatever eats shits out and then they turn that into the coffee being in like people pay for jillion dollars for. I don't know about that. But yes i think. How do you not know about that. I don't even know what you're saying. Really my gosh. Oh my gosh no no. This is like a legit real thing. There's a coffee from somewhere. In south america. Coffee made from pope. I'm not kidding. It's okay copay. Loook is made from coffee. Beans plucked from six feces. So the the feces of a civic. It's the world's most expensive event it so it's a kind of Oh i'll just show you right here. Can you see that. Let's say it's like a looks weird. Looks like oh. Nope can't see that. It looks like a possum so long. Okay like a possum and a rat and cat all an monkey. How in one all in one. And that is it. And it's made out of poop so yeah for those people. Yeah i bet. I don't think this is just like in drink oreos or something. I think it's just for like rice. I'm sort of specialty. Johnson's okay. Yeah because i need to go but then there you know there's like crushed up beetles and lipstick and and that really works and they're like when i was in peru they. They're those little little shopping went to were. These women. were like showing me like. Oh look i just take this beetle impo book and then she like rubbing my lips they were beautiful and read for the whole day. I mean that seems more reasonable though. Because you're not saying delicious right. It gets worse when you're trying to tell me it's flavor pay. Yeah yeah that is it. And how do we know it's safe to thank you. That was area the glands of every animal at the see what else they smell like. How safe but like certain berries will kill you. Come on come on a buying it. No i don't buy that either. I mean this is not like a big story. I just was struck by the first person to milk beavers going to get over that right like how did we so so to speak that. That's okay okay. A the bottom of this tale so beaver tail this next thing. I don't know the whole story. But i was fascinated by the head headline which was Henry the eighth May have had traumatic brain injury and like ct basically and that's why he was a crazy wife. Murdering tyrant and. I was intrigued. Because i guess we think of cte associated with sports football specifically and think of it kinda new. But it's not a new disease not know if you've been falling off horses and in battle or whatever they said it was a jousting accident i that would i would imagine. It would be something like that. And then it's like. I bet you a lot of people became you know wife killers and stuff or husband killers because of cte. Wow i never thought about it. Yeah but then on the other hand. I'm like debating myself because i was like. I don't like how we're always looking for ways to like exculpate these husbands. Who were shitty like. Oh yes so. That's why i don't know if i complained about this on here or to you that i'm over. The story line of however movie is doing. I feel like every horror movie. I watch the back story for every single bag. I is that they are murderer is that they were a victim of child sexual abuse. And i'm like i it feels and it's like a new thing isn't sample of that the okay the there were so many that i've seen recently I watched a the haunting of blind manner. That was in their fictional story fictional stories fictional stories where they create the the story. And it's almost like with the popular of popularity of murder All those true crime stories. All of us have this dying like why. Why do they do this. What what explains this and feels like people have latched onto like that explanation. So there it's being used in all of these horror films as like. How did you get like this well. Let's show back like clips from his childhood and it's just like stop. Doing that is a weirdo. How they have something that don't end up like that murderer. So yeah that's where i'm like. This is really not good for people who have experienced that. Because we don't all end up becoming murders. I said to my husband the other day. Because i was reading about how often times with violent Well serial killers in particular. They attribute some of it. Too domineering mom and i said to adam like you didn't become serial killer but do you think there's anything to that or that we just like. I don't know i well about the cause. They claim saying things that you can. I think it say it's just like in that malcolm. Glad while book we read talking to strangers. There's it's what is it called coupling. It's the coupling of things so it's not just one of those things standalone. It's multiple factors that why why it's mothers in particular not fathers. Why would that be more. Were supposed to be there. Like it'd be the nurturers and the yeah my sleeve. That part falls on the woman shoulders. Well but i did watch this thing recently. That said that that is just a. We already knew this societal. Yeah because if you have a that a gay couple to that two men. That have just had a baby. Whoever is the more who ever is in the more like caretaker role with the baby and more frequently. we'll have higher levels of those same oxytocin all the same drugs that like women get as being that you see the same. Oh hi and other way. It's like we've seen a rise and you can see those same hormones in men so you think that it's the caring for the child that increases that in the woman not the or at least according to the interesting. Yeah i'll find that summer. Put on my notes okay. Well another thing that's interesting is when science can help us be live the life that we want which is one of the reasons why i love neum. New is a great program if you are looking to change your habits if you wanna lose weight if you wanna be in tune with your body's needs i've heard from so many brainiacs who've used neum and really enjoy it really find that it's effective and helpful in meeting their goals and i believe it because it's i found the same thing and i loved that it was science based and that the people the neum sort of counselors i guess you'd call them or like accountability coaches or whatever they'll send you links with scientific data about what your goal is in how these certain behaviors can help keep habits. Hold you accountable. You believe that you achieve it. I love that you to believe it. It's great it is great and it only takes ten minutes a day it's super low pressure no shaming or anything like that. They just try to keep you on track. And there's a science to getting healthier. It's called neum. Sign up trial today at neum and co dot com slash brain candy live visit. Neum dot com brain. Can you just start your trial today. That's new and show 'em dot com slash brain candy. I always think of that teach. Amanda fish saying when i think about no right i mean the like the real life changing stuff that you can and nfl is empowering at least for me very helpful and getting new track got another article from a brainiac about how One company has used the three d. printing to make a three d vagina so doctors students in medical i. I was mad but then as you said it's for learning yeah and patients can like really understand their vagina. And i was so great. Yes i still don't understand it and why did it. We don't have that. We don't even have that check out. The picture of them felt like i love that they are also doing to skin tones. At least get picture me to darker vagina in a lighter vagina and but also the coloring. Not so perfect on that. Why because it's like to brown not the not. I mean the light colored grout one but the it's just feels like there's a variation like a giant isn't just one color that i mean. Listen i'm happy. I'm happy that we're making like three. D. printer has limitations on. How the coloration probably probably yes. You'd probably like you got to choose one color and then somebody should go in like painted to like. yeah like. there's there's usually some pink or red or like dark and light. Yeah tony page. Yeah because if i looked at just that it'd be like what's wrong well jerry. I also think it's like two smooth like there's all this move it is there are the come on right. There's some lines and wrinkles some stuff going on. Yes so this is like step one. Yeah but i'm for it. Because i'm super for it. I think it's great. Josh located somebody in the back is like ox gives me. Where's the g spot that question. Yes so that might be helpful so hopefully doctors will get their act together. Because i feel like they have neglected yet our special bids for sure i heard once i watched this documentary called the business of being born. It's fantastic that in a obgyn's medical training and everything their entire residency. Whatever they don't ever witness a live birth a natural birth with the out medical complications. Because it's not considered without -cations. They've they don't see a normal vaginal birth just like that's not part of the curriculum to ever see that. So unless they sought out bat on their own or like experience that they would never the only experienced with birth would be caesarian say this or an. This is according to the documentary at which came out. I want to say like nineteen ninety four so if that has changed and they are now educate if we have an obgyn out there listening. Who is like no. I saw live birth. And that was part of my. Please let me know but man so they tend to focus on like. Here's what you do when things go wrong. Yes right the plan for what goes wrong. But like here's what a natural delivery looks like and we have a lot of work to do so much work to do. I mean it wasn't that long ago that we were strapping women down giving them twilight amnesia and x rang their bellies. I know that's what my mom had. And i know when you told me. I can't even believe it. She called it a saddle block. Isn't that the worst name you ever. Yeah like i am my my vagina. Why are we calling it a saddle. Stop it right well. one thing. You definitely shouldn't stop is trying to feel better and this year has been a doozy and i have the perfect idea for you or someone you love for christmas gift or a holiday gift thera gun. This thing is so awesome. It's a progressive therapy device. i used to these. Were just something you could get like the chiropractor somewhere fancy but now you can have it in your own home and i'm in love with ours. It is so powerful but it's quiet and it's soothing and it really does help me with muscle tension you guys know. I struggle with migraines and headaches so anything that can help me get relaxed and less tense is a winner. I bought one for my friend. Val and he said that it helped him so much with neck pain. He's a writer so he's on. Stover is computer all day. And you know it leads to muscle tension. And he said he now has no pain in his neck. Which is frigging great scientifically calibrated with depth speed and power but it is quite as an electric toothbrush. Here's where you can get it. Try thera- gun for thirty days. There's no substitute for thera gun. Gen four with an led screen personalized their app and the quiet in power. You need starting at only one hundred ninety nine dollars go to thera gun dot com slash brain candy right. Now get your gen four thera gun today. That's their gun. Dot com slash. Brain can eat there a gun. Dot com slash. Bring any great gift idea. Go for it next up. This is like all so far. I think every story except for the pope was brought to you. By brainiacs brainiac keep up the good work you send such things Oh my god. I just burps this to one is about how when your brain is developing a memory that it basically does the same thing that your camera or your phone does and includes like meta data on it and so you know when it happened like they call it a time sell so your your brain is literally putting a time stamp all. Oh my gosh. It is cool because they did this. Study people that had damaged hippocampus remembered everything fine but they couldn't tell you the order that something happened even if it just happened like thirty minutes ago yes and that that's a special skill that if you don't have damaged hippocampus you should be able to do which is like just figured this out. I love we're putting all of this information together now and now. We know that during trauma the hippocampus stops functioning properly so when we have somebody who is experienced sexual assault. You saw this in the cavenaugh trials. Yes okay then what happened then. What happened the part of your brain. That is responsible for putting in chronological order. Does not work because that is not part of your that you are in survival mode where it doesn't need that all you need to be doing is assessing the environment for dangers and then escaping whether that's through friday fright flight fight or freeze and in that fight flight or freeze place. Your hippocampus is severely impacted because of the amount the hormones that are running through your body that are created in that firefight. Well in. it's so it's such a problem because witness testimony. Yes you know often discredits victims because maybe they can't remember details that someone who wasn't there would think was so memorable the peripheral details versus the Peripheral and whatever that other word is member you have to ask. Specific questions won't remember what time it happened. But what was the color of the bed sheets. They were blue one hundred percent. I know they were blue. What time did this happen. Have no you right or even date and sometimes you're right right so awful central details central details peripheral detail member. Christine lazy ford is that. I hope i'm saying that right said like i don't remember that. And they said something like what do you remember. And she said the sound of the laughter is like imbedded in then. She's like a psychologist so she knew the right words to say about what it's done to her brain but like yeah anybody that's victim knows exactly what she means like. You might not remember what month it happened but you remember the sound of their laughter. The uproarious laughter. Yep yep i can remember the ways that things were arranged on the nightstand rate in places. That bad things happened right. And that's why. I wish that we could change the way we prosecute this stuff and and how to do it in a way. That doesn't have this happen. But wow i didn't get together with the hippocampus damage and then like the trauma as well. Yeah that would suck though if you did have that Injury and then yeah. I knew something happened but you had no clue like well. Yeah what order. No contact hard. Wow anyway yeah no time line. That's fascinating i'm glad. They're making headway in figuring all this out but it's like yeah like everything we learn. There's like but there's so much more so much more and it's just this this piecing together of all this. That's why i'm saying. I love when different Fields come together and so you take you know the psychology with like the Criminal defense like our law legal stuff and all that you have to combine all these things and that's how we can have a more informed and and he would go to work with information we have. What does the data say what you know. We have to pull it altogether right. Okay let me think. Good stories sues all right What about how. Apparently this you know. How like as you get older. You sort of like narrow your friend group down when you might have like dozens of friends and all this stuff and they were saying that they did a study about it because it's sort of a true thing that people tend to like narrow down their friend group as they age and they found that chimps due to chimpanzees and they call it sociaux emotional selectivity theory. And they've really fancy does but really. It's like this person's toxic. I'm weeding them out. What it says they on. I'm gonna use that with my clients. Because i'm going to say look chimpanzees foundries you can also have when they say that you have the same abilities as a chimpanzee. Yes maybe not an arm strength but emotional cognition you could definitely set some boundaries. Yes they were saying that it comes with age because the awareness of your own mortality. All the fact that you're going to die us dr to realize that bad friends aren't worth your time. Your time becomes valuable and champs to their they did it with male chimps because female chimps tend to stay just like with their family and stuff but the men go out and like the moose lodge or whatever the fuck they do as the as they start to be like. This guy's an asshole. I'm going to hang out with us so chimps do it too love that. Yeah we all should and people need to not were not feel bad about those things. I do feel bad though. 'cause i always talk about you know how when you do know someone who's toxic and they're constantly complaining about everyone and this person was rude and this person did this and you think you know that saying where they say if you meet an asshole in the morning you've met an asshole if you meet assholes all day you're the asshole. Oh and so. If someone's like constantly complaining about people i start to think like is it everyone else or is it them or is it right. Yeah so like when. I start reading people because i'm like i don't like what they're bringing to the table. I'm like wait. Maybe i'm the asshole. No no no. You're not because as even as i'm here sitting hearing you say that i'm like wait a second. I'm like no no because we were both here. Say no you're not that's it and it's because don't you feel like any people that you've and i mean like not the friends that moved away and you don't talk to that often friends and you catch up. That's that's different. Yeah i mean the friends were like no. I'm not going to be doing this. I'm not going this is. This person has different morals. Or whatever. And i'm done. Don't you feel like it goes both ways like it's not like one person's like oh my gosh. What like well. That's true so seems a little a little won't even know the point. I was trying to make with us but it feels like going. Were defending me. And saying i wasn't an asshole. Yeah so we'll just go. Oh yeah you're definitely not an ass that's definitely not Yeah but like if you're if you're aging in you're sort of thinking like i have fewer friends now and but their quality friends then feel good about that because that's saying you shouldn't you don't need to feel guilty like you don't feel bad about that because you have to ask yourself. Is the other person feeling bad right now right and so are you feeling. Are you feeling. Are you choosing to feel sad. Rather them them being like yeah. You're taking like you're feeling for them. Yeah just feel better about the light load yes you don't you can't if you're like. Oh well i feel bad. That i cut them out and they might be sad. We'll the phone goes both ways. There's there's there's no evidence that there said. Yeah that's it. So you're holding onto that sadness and that emotion that's unnecessary guilt. Because that person right in your well this is going to get therapy. But your desire to kind of control. That person's emotion is where that comes from of like. I feel guilty because i. I think that they're going to think this way. And and i don't want them to think that way. So i feel guilty about it but the truth is they can thank our the heck they want and we are not in control about that so therefore you don't need to feel guilty about him. What was trudy. Yeah if you did what was good to you and true in your heart and what you need to do. They are responsible for their own feelings. I say this with my clients to that if you because every people feel guilty about things they shouldn't feel guilty about all the time and you know it's been with the holiday has been something yes especially women. Yeah it'll be like if you have a child that's like i want. I want ice cream for dinner. And you're like nope. I'm sorry we're having dinner for dinner. And that child throws temper. Tantrum throws a fit and his crying on the floor. Are you the bad parent because that child is now upset and you should give them ice cream because like that child's upset and we don't want them to feel bad right. No this is the right thing to do and unfortunately they just have to deal with that emotion and the learned that look. It's not that like so what ads i consider this reminder. Everyone yes that. If you get rid of someone who isn't may be serving you in terms of like your emotional wellbeing which is healthy boundaries. Yes yes don't feel bad. I'm kinda like telling myself to don't feel bad and different seasons like it doesn't mean you're history is voided good times. Those are great. You can carry those with you. But don't feel bad about getting rid of duds right. Yeah and we can. We need to look at the things. Oh this person taught me how to. I don't know do a perfect french braid. I'll take thank them but also they suck Are an all lives matter. I never hang out. Matter is a real story. I know we're talking about right now. You do the things that they gave to you and you gave them still are valid. But that's season is over and that's okay. Yes and as we evolve and as we grow their things grow at different speeds. You know all all all plants. 'cause i always relate everything to plants not amazing book Lab girl that we read. But it's like they can be the same exact seed sitting in the same exact planter with getting the same exact sunlight in the same exact water and one will sprout up and the other one will be a little bit behind. That's okay say one is better plant. One is the worst plant because there's grown a different speed different and when that seed was ready it was so sometimes it takes people a little bit longer. Sometimes seed sometimes. Lets find it down sarah. Yeah there's a good spot. What a fun episode. What a fun headset worn. I really liked getting to watch you on this. That was really fun for me. If you guys want to watch it you can go to patriotdepot dot com slash brain candy. I'm going to try to do these More often because i think they're fun We learned so much good stuff on vomit. Smells like cheese yes. We learned that people might be milking veers an says but probably not. I think maybe not that much. We learned that henry. The eighth might have had. I know j simpson situation cooking Which explained on there are a lot of toys that we felt like got Right ebbed turn on the magic colored light though.

Hustlin'

"From workhouse connect in. Aj Benza vein. he likes to be walked on a leash and play really dirty kinky sex tapes. CBS The guy. Put the cock in the peacock network. Okay Bitch Hey everybody. Aj here for fame as a bitch. This is your podcast. Kissed for December Thirtieth Twenty nineteen the last free podcasts of twenty nineteen up the decade all the decade. Unless you're a patriots last time you hear me talk for Free Twenty nineteen but of course you will in the roaring twenties. I know they're calling tonight. The twenty twenties whoring twenties. Now we'll see how much they roar what I've seen so far in social media and the news I call them the whoring twenties more than anything else allotted to bring up. I haven't been on for a while. We've been separated because of an illness and then Christmas break and as I I set on my Patriot show. I'm not even aware date. Is I know this football behind me so obviously it Sunday but it doesn't feel right this whole week is a weird blur not only me. But I'm sure many of you as well Let me talk about something that happened before Christmas treated the van Zo. The famous mob wife Aw getting busted. Police enter her home. They find two loaded guns one in the bedroom one of the kitchen they found one hundred twenty hydro cortisone pills the pain killer. They found Valium they found the volume of the anti medication pill. Either one. That was in their bedroom. They found two scales ziplock bags obviously used for the purpose of Packaging drugs and selling them or you know dispensing drugs. You don't just have scales house to fucking way to weigh a your drugs. There's no reason to weigh them. If you're gonNA take them yourself very bad and they also had a bunch of A bunch your money in a bar in some Cellphones inside the house. That's a weird thing too. There was also a large quantity of marijuana which to me is not a big deal anymore but but some it was in the basement and some of it was in the kitchen cabinet. Unfortunately that's that's accessible to the twelve year old daughter not a good look and that's where child protective services will get in your life and they will not leave your life and they'll make it very fucking uncomfortable. Oh few now. I know we need job protective services for multitude of cases situation like this. I'm not so sure I'm really not I know the raid happened after the NYPD received community tips and some concerns about the activities at that location occasion so her and her husband lead to vans or facing charges of criminal. Possession of a controlled substance criminal possession of a weapon of a firearm The controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child and the judge also issued a limited order of protection against both of them for somebody that was not named in court. I'm not sure who that is. Good to know who that person is either way. They're going to be back in court January thirty already. I now if you've watched mob wives or if you watch drita on instagram and on social media she's fun she's sexy she's fiery she's passionate Scott a great fucking body. She's very honest. She sings and dances in the kitchen. Walsh's cookie mother daughter. She got a huge following. She likes to go to concerts. She likes to sing and rap APP on stage. She's quite a person. She's Albanian and a lot of problems began because Well when you're all banding you're not supposed else to marry outside your race. You're not supposed to marry anybody. But an Albanian treat. It went against her parents wishes or their mandates and she married Lee Van Zone Italian Italian gangster no less this is very prevalent in Staten Island or on. Staten Island. A lot of gangsters a lot of children of gangsters. A A lot of girls ended up dating people whose family or mafiose it happens a lot. That's why that show mob wives was so fascinating because they all knew each other all kind of connected naked through the mob And we all got to either love or hate her but one thing she was was great TV. I have said instantly when when this when this came down that I think she was either set up by Karen Grenell the daughter of the former mob rat. Sammy the Bulgar Mono who put John Gotti audio way for many many years until we died Karen and and read it never got along or they got along off and on or could be renee Graziano the other chick who used to hang around with big ends if you watch that show and you know. They're all they're all from mob families. Rene his father was a mobster Blah Blah Blah on. It's a mess. They all know. There's a lot of jealousies is a Lotta jealousies involved in this situation. So do I think Karen Gavino Rene may have been the ones who tipped off people. Yeah I do I think they might have been. And if I have my pick I'd say Karen more than Than Rene but you know look look. It's not too much of a it's not too. It's not too hard to imagine the cops coming to their house. 'cause lead to Van Zyl is the guy that had served prison stints. It's on numerous other occasions. Numerous federal and state convictions. He was arrested in something called operation. Turkey shoot when four people were caught trying to break into into the vault of a bank in a in a Staten Island. Bank in new SPRINGVILLE. Back in twenty eight and the evidence indicated that Lee and the other suspects got in by drilling through the walls of neighboring building so he was on federal probation at the time for similar crimes and he pleaded guilty. He got thirty six months to five years in state prison. In two thousand three. He was sentenced to sixty two months in federal prison on racketeering charges multiple robberies marijuana distribution abuse loansharking money laundering. That's what he does. It's not going to change his spots now. While he was away wife got very prominent and very wealthy on television. Not GonNa come home and get a regular fucking job and make five dollars a week somewhere. It's GonNa go back to the grind back to the crime doom. What he knows best so it was only a matter of time before someone tipped off cops that there should happening their address and he was part of a game called the new Springfield Boys? They're very very prevalent. Well it in stock people know that group on Staten Island This is a bunch of people. A bunch of kids had connections to the banana crime. Family Lucchese crime. Brian family other families as well. Trust me whatever these young kids. He's not young now but when you start making money all over the place every family wants a piece issue every family wants you to earn for them and eventually you have your pickle you WanNa work for you get recruited by families so sometimes you freelance between different families that happens quite a bit My steinhauer Chico. There were things that say we but there are things that we did for the Genevisi the and the Gambia no crime family because sometimes these families had had had interest in the same thing. Oh I don't WanNA get too deep. That's a whole different show but I can understand Dan why people are so surprised. I can't understand why people are so surprised by this. I really can you know MOB wives a very popular for the show. It did nothing to keep lead the van Zyl under the radar. You know these people are not stars. They're just very well known. And sometimes we treat them like stars and expect them to act like stars but that's not who they are. They're just very well known people. There's a big difference from being a movie star Dr or a TV star and just being very well known like from reality TV. oftentimes the people in reality shows tend to fuck up and lose everything because they they don't know the difference. They think they belong in those seats at the academy. They think they belong to see to the Emmy but they don't two different worlds and the people in Hollywood like to have them around because they're dangerous and they mean ratings they mean money but they also know they're gonna cut them loose. The second gets too hot so you know oh I hope they get their lives in order for the sake of the daughters you know. They got two kids. They're Unless all the weapons and drugs were in plain sight on willing to bet that lead to vans. All the husband will claim that Drita wasn't aware of anything and it was all his doing Blah Blah Blah and and the DA. It'll be more than happy to get one of them. And not the two and as usual most of it will be reduced to less of a criminal charge and They'll be some plea bargaining a and all that kind of Shit but Staten Island is especially the courts out there. I've I've had girlfriends. They are spent a lot of time. There Staten Island is very big on the on the catch and release thing about because of Lee sells priors. He's GonNa do time. Just not as much as we would all think for something of this nature because you know something. Look what I was getting doctor prescribed medication. You know I have one hundred and twenty pain on my night table. Might my kids in the same fucking talking by kids down the hall like lock me up for that. You're going to lock me up for having some weed in the closet. No the problem is multiple cell phones and the scale and a couple couple of DON's at the not registered to the not legal. That means time gun charges the worst. You can't have guns in your house. If they're not registered that's fucking bad in fact one time. Oh my God. This is terrible when I had the last girlfriend before married my wife. I had this little Greek girlfriend that I was dating. bessie Christ the fucking torment anyhow. I wasn't at my best at that point my life either but We had a very passionate relationship but I used to write on in my little dining room in this duplex. I had done in Hollywood and I left on the on the desk. Where wrote my father's revolver when he was a cop? I I had this gone on my desk. I just liked it. There was a picture of me sitting on my father's lap when I was a little like maybe three year old kid and holding his gun. It wasn't loaded thirty but my dad had me hold his gun as a three year old and I know nowadays we'd all go to jail for that back then it was kind of cute and I liked having the picture on my desk with the actual gun that he left me so one night me and my ex girlfriend. Bessie had a big argument. She leaves the house. And it's a fucking loud argument and of course the COPS or call because people here yelling shot. She didn't call them but the COPS call. We were broken up. She didn't think we've broken up Blah Blah Blah cops show up and I have this. I had one of these open up like French French doors where you could see me in the dining before you entered the house cops saw me and said Hey You guys come on and no problem. I'm not thinking about the Mike at my desk and the cops walk ending a listening heard. This problem is some loud arguing with me and my girl would broken up. She doesn't make me. Are the cops going. Hey listen man you know. Girls don't ever think you're broken up if they if they tell you that you're not blowing up. You're not br I said. No but we are GONNA. Suddenly the COP sees the gun on the counter. He goes us a Michigan Right. Now drop your hands. Let me see your hands. Stop talking sit down that year. Put Your hands behind your head like a fucking TV show. I said well aww fuck happen. Just tell you and he goes. Let's talk about the gun. PUTS ME IN CUFFS. He caught me to my chair because there was a guy I said guys. This is a gun from the nineteen fifties is. I've never never been fired by me. Something my father left me. Emily saw the picture of him as a cop. You know they got it they said. Look put that fucking living in a draw. Do not leave that out. An unregistered gun in Los Angeles will get you time. You can't have that any. I'm trying to say that a guy like d'avanzo has got a criminal history that gun those guns that were in his possession. That's going to be his undoing But you know the fact that these These people bowl act a certain way and think they're real stars is the bigger crime you know because anybody at cops are going to get a search warrant for that House House easily because people say people tipped the cops off and say look. There's a lot of traffic going in and out of there Between Ten and two o'clock in the morning and You you know it's easy to get a search warrant and hit the House and and you know Bingo. You got the guy but I liked drita you know like I said she said she. She's funny on Instagram. But what did you think. Did you get blinded into thinking that these people make their money working ten hour days at some thankless job with benefits but you think their money was obtained through good honest hard work. Come on come on. I got friends who tell me things about DRITA drita apparently apparently spends hundreds day on gambling. Maybe not right now but I heard that that's what she'd been doing for a while. You know numbers. Quick draw every Deli on Staten Island to go in and play and gamble. They'd see what the Bagel store that series seven eleven. All the time and all I can tell you is. I used to make similar trips like that with Chico back in the day. Do you think we really want to go to seven. Eleven that Bailey from Lotto tickets or do you think. Do you think we want to go to every arts and craft show a long island to spend a couple of hundred bucks. No but you gotta burn through dirty. The money somehow got to do the laundry. I think those trips Geeta Drita was was taking the seven eleven. And then you know all these kinds of Delhi's Elis was for that purpose especially to get rid of dirty money and get it clean any other bigger issue here is what child Al Protective Services will do. They can make your life miserable they can make you seem like you're an evil person and and You don't care about your kids at all when it's the exact opposite it scary. How quickly the government can suddenly be in charge of your children? It happens in a blink last year. It kind of almost happened to me. Once they entered the life our lives because of the the arrest and because My kids were home in the arguing was was taking place child. Protective Research has to be involved at once. They're involved they get their hooks and they don't leave to easily. That's where they make their unscheduled visits to the kids schools for interviews. They check your refrigerator if you're being if the kids are being fed right. Are they underweight as any marks in about it's terrible really fucking scary but it happens in a blink and it makes you feel like there's nothing you can do and it makes makes a man feel like so ill equipped in this in this society. Diety I was thinking about that because I was watching over the weekend. That movie on Netflix. Marr- marriage story with Scarlett Johansson and Adam driver Nulla back comeback is the guy who made the movie it's going to be up for Oscars no question about it. It's it's look it's a good film but it's a forgettable film There are some great acting before it's it's it's about a marriage dissolving and lawyers getting involved and child protective services trying to see if the kid is being treated correctly and is especially tough to watch what happens to Adam driver as the father in this divorce saga and how child protective services steps in to see how he treats his child. It made me sick watching it a lot of this film. The look out of John was great in this movie. Suddenly this kid. I saw him in Black Klansman now. In marriage I hated him in girls. Because I hated Lena Dunham but Adam drivers a Goddamn good actor But a lot of his film is another example of how men suck and women are so much better smarter stronger so many examples. I'll give you a few you know. There's one pointed Adam. Driver Hans Scholar Hanson of jarred pickles to open. Because he can't do they zoom in and his face in his faces red and he's shaking can't open the pickles. He's a fucking six foot three inch Bambi. Hands it over the four foot eleven instructor Oh transfer and she opens it as she's reading crossword puzzle and in her monologue of why she likes him. She actually says he's a good dresser. Sir He never looks embarrassing which is hard for a man is it really. Is that something that people think. Because I never thought that about myself at all I never looked at my closets achy size so I just don't know how to dress her. I don't know what to do with my clothes. I don't know what to wear them at. Give me a fucking break. AAC fucking Noah Baumbach back. Thought you'd think of men what the fuck is wrong with you. Then then he's playing monopoly with people. He lands lands on Baltic view and he loses the monopoly. Game was young boy who must be eight years old playing monopoly and he exits the room. Like get astle. You know it because he landed on Baltic Avenue in his kid wanted money. He's fuck now on bankrupt and he left the game in a huff. Really upset at doesn't happen either. You know. And of course. He misses stops on the subway with his son. And of course the kids grandmother comes by announces that she got this on into fairy camp and the kid says I don't want to go but she says every boy likes fairy camp and by the way her mom announces proudly was months married to a gay man. Who's WHO's now dead? And she hangs out with his ex gay lover. That's her new friend. So that gives took great great wisdom. You see there's not really a strong portrayal of an actual men only ray Liotta as the lawyer is a man you know. There's one time with someone says you should take Charlie to palm springs when he gets here And she didn't when you walk in on dad blowing the porter and Palm Springs yes and I always regretted it so there's another example there was a father wants who blew the porter in a hotel hell because he was getting so no one surrounded by Goodman. No one does even apart where scholar Anson's on US TV set for a new pilot. And there's all this chatter and some man says I was raised by two mothers. You know we need. We need to have this stuff. Interjected television shows and movies is constantly now to raise the consciousness. That men were raised by women. I was raised by two mothers then. Some militant woman meets her on the set it and barges in her trailer. And says I'm GonNa give you a number and it's her lawyers number who's good because she helped take money from quote cock sucking husband then. She sees her therapist. WHO's a lovely Laura dern? I Love Laura dern but of course Laura dern comes right right out and says she has an abusive ex. WHO's also an asshole in on a therapist? That's not what they're tell you. They don't talk that they'll they don't offer that kind. Honey of information sought some they say you know Laura Dern says the scarlet Nanu men men ravage us with attention mentioned in the beginning but once we have babies get sick of us. That's not fucking true. Any man I know in fact the opposite is true. You want to know something. Here's the truth. Every remand thinks of cheating. It's just our hardwired. It's deepen our DNA to propagate to to move on and keep the species going but we don't do that for the reason we love our wives the vision of our wives holding our children with fever while they themselves were sick. The vision of our wives getting up at four. Am To warm bottle with a screaming human in their arms. I mean why and how can we be so far apart heart on what we feel about each other and why does Hollywood always accept the cheap easy anti man version of things and no one has the balls to stood up so no. That's not the way it goes. Let's let's change that but at it's core you know this is all about what a lot of women want and that is for for a man to take them in their arms. Tell them I'm just so excited for what you WanNa do in your life. That's just not realistic. It's not a realistic portrayal of the way men and women feel especially the way men feel but whenever I see Laura dern I always think how I was so close to Billy Bob Thornton. During that time when he was in the process of of living with Laura dern but was also being hunted down by Angelina Jolie said nineteen eighteen. Ninety two thousand. I think it was two thousand and you know we'd spend nights where he tell me. That Angelina came to the hotel last night. And you know. He wasn't sure what he wanted to do. Oh and you know. He's he's never paid to this having a conscious conscience during this time but he really did. If anything it was me pushing him to go to Angelina Jolie leave Laura dern. I was always in his ear. Dude you've gotta go to Angelina for every man that can't you've got to do this. You got to do it for us and even laugh and stuff but with a lot of people. Forget this whole Angelina. Laura dern thing is back then Angelina was twenty four years old. At the time she was a baby I heavy Bob was twice arrayed back then and when she was young a lot not a lot of people know when she was young maybe four three of four or something like that got four five you know babysitter was how bad it was. Laura dern that's the real nitty gritty of this crazy story you know I know Billy Bob Thornton handed wrong and and and candid up being with Angelina and never coming home to Laura dern who was away on a movie set and as a result she never knew they were done until she read about it in the papers. She's off making a movie and believe Bob never comes home. I guess some say how can that bitterness not come through as she plays a role as a lawyer who was going after a man any good movie forgettable forgettable but definitely a movie. You're going to talk about for few days. And the performance is great especially Adam driver and Ray liotta Laura dern played great lawyers opposing each other. But I do have to talk about for a bit. What's happening with Kevin fucking spacey? Mike God all these accusers. Dying off and how creepy that video that Christmas video about killing people of kindness. But this latest situation Ari ben the Guy that was married to the Princess Princess Martha Louise of Norway for fourteen years. He also accused spacey of Grammy Crotch at a concert for the Nobel Peace Prize. That's if there's ever a party you don't grab someone's Dick. It's at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner. And he did that and then he kills himself on Christmas Day. Twelve over years after the Dick grab leaves three daughters behind sixteen fourteen and eleven. You cannot have killed yourself because you've got grab okay. No I do not think he was murdered. I'm not gonNA feed into this. Whole thing about Kevin Spacey? Having people not talking to the Clintons about murdering people. I do think it's very weird though but I did hear from people. That ben was somebody who was really into medication Shen to alter his mood to sleep. I think he was on the pill ability by and it was doing some things to his head. That were fucking wrong. You know pills like that that can really alter who you are and who you think you are. I've talked to numerous people who've taken pills like that and it does you know good. It's a very dangerous injury so I think if they do this they do an autopsy and we hear but in his system I I want I bet you that bill is in his system of some kind of heavy sleep drug or mood altering drugs. I think that's what did it but this is the third of Kevin Spacey's accuses to die. Linda Culkin the nursing pursing assistant. Who accused of sexually assaulting one of her patients? She gets hit by a car on February Massachusetts in September. A massage therapist known as John DOE dies and John DOE is Suing Kevin Spacey at the time of their assault So you know. Three people accused Hugh spacey of assault of ended up dead very very fucking straight. Meanwhile space himself was back to ruin everybody's holidays with another creepy. Be Video where he pretended to be his house of cards character. Frank Underwood just like he did. A couple of years ago in that video cooking it's very off-putting watching these. Uh I I have. I want to look away but I can't. His voice makes me shiver the fire. He's stoking. The fire is burning evidence in the fire. What kind of message is he sending us and I want to know is what is Netflix? Doing why is Netflix allowing him to to fucking keeps speaking is Frank Underwood. Did he get ownership of frank under him when he left the network the network series. You know the guy's got three accusers of Kevin Spacey's should probably stay away from talking about killing anyone in anyway. Even if he said kill people with kindness cygnus the more and more we see Kevin Spacey. We realized he really wasn't acting when he played college Associ- or when he played That guy in seven this is who he is. That's why those parts came so easy to him and what I really think is more obvious more and more as we watch these people die. Kevin Spacey was very adept at preying on sensitive people. You know who are more likely to turn turn their pain inward then than rich the unpleasant trees of standing up to him in in public or in court it it. It's definitely looks like he went after a particular type speaking types. Let me say this. And that's not the last will hear about Kevin Spacey. Someone else will probably die soon. But something's going to happen. That's GonNa really something big is going to happen with Kevin Spacey soon. Twenty twenty is going to have a big story about spacey and Ain't going to be pretty but speaking of type. I got into somebody on social media about Robert Deniro and his preference for dating black women. This person I know says I'm a child south and she called Deniro a racist because he only dates black girls and I find that ridiculous you know. The world is hard enough to negotiate without someone insane crazy shit like this and listen. I hate the stuff he says about Donald Trump wanting him to get hit by a bag of shit wanting to punch his face call them mud the dog and the dog. You know I wish Robert Deniro would just take three minutes to offer a concise argument on why the president so much. GimMe Gimme some real. Give me some real stuff. Say something to make. Don't you say we've got a big fucking ego is he. Goes out because he goes to bed. Okay is he goes to exposure regal too the big just give me something good concrete but he never does. Every actor I know is gonNA gigantic ego so all I disagree with Robert De Niro says says about the President I will defend his right to date. Whoever the hell he wants to date and not have him be called racist? Why is that so hard to understand? He'd rather date a black woman. You know. I can speak to that a little bit. Although my preferences stretched Latinos as well look it just means that you like a woman with a certain kind of passion you know. We also like women I I don't. I don't think there are many any Swedes or German girls. Who would put up with my type of passion my type of energy my type of attitude but for some reason Italian girls do black girls do Latino Gross Rosedale? You can't call Robert Deniro racist because he prefers to date black women first of all. He's dated white women he's dated late 'til a young Ashley Judd Oma Thurman but the the press likes to pinpoint the black women and saying he's raised this assumes he hates the white race doesn't it doesn't it's not true it's got relationships with Martin Scorsese for over forty years. Jean Rosenthal runs his production. The company forever people are saying you know hallway prefer to date does not make us racist. It's just ridiculous to stop. The Deniro was is a racist. Bullshit you can call an asshole you want but not a racist and finally got to talk about this movie cats before the year ends. I have to get this Out because we have to mention that Dame Judi dench what she had to recently say about her role in this disaster of a movie she plays as the The part of old deuteronomy which is a character traditionally performed by a male actor. So Judy was really excited when she got the chance to do the cats movie because she was supposed to play Grizz Avello or jenny any dots in a stage production in one thousand nine hundred one but she. She had an Achilles heel problem and she dropped out of the show so recently. She said she had an interesting thought on on the take of old Deuteronomy who she says you know. It's glorious been included in this. I must say it was nerve wracking. I kind of call it a Trans Deuteronomy. You know it was was lovely. Lovely be led around and be like by age being age cat very nice indeed but again another old octogenarian who's who's desperately trying to be woke and articles and websites saying or acting like they they know something about this gender non says they don't she's a fucking five years old. She's confused she's almost blind. I don't know what she's talking about and I don't care a trends this cat Gimme a fucking Breglio taste judy. I raised my cat as gender neutral right after the vet. Cut His balls off. Okay this is nonsense. A woman can play a man a male cat and not have to think of it as a trans role but talking about this movie. I don't know why celebrities breeze like Judi dench or Idris Elba participated in this fucking movie. I mean I guess they got a quick check. I'm sure quick. Nice check but I can totally see why rebel Wilson or Jason Derulo took part because they're both cheesy and insufferable. They'll do fucking anything for money. But you know I guess they thought this there's GonNa be a big Oscar movie. I know that's probably why the director Tom Hooper put it out before December thirty first Oscars deadline like it was going to be celebrated. There's being visionary think about that. This hunk is shit. They made sure was out before the Oscars because they were certain that people he doesn't go. Oh my word. This is unprecedented glorious filmmaking. And it's the opposite. I don't think these people did this for a quick check. They have to do dance lessons choreography. Seeing lessons there are other big checks out dignity Europe into a sitter and for a fucking half a million in dollars. It's baffling to me. Maybe the pitch sounded better. Turn out to be but it comes out in December twentieth. Which means it's supposed to be that movie? Their families flocked to on Christmas Eve Christmas Day and nothing people came fucking ran out screaming. It's going to become a camp classic now. One person said they want to hurry to see the Shitty version before the fixed version was sent out. That's what it's become. I talked about this with a friend the other day they they should focus on entertainment again rather than pushing this fucking narrative. They're always trying to teach just something Hollywood wherever it makes sense. Of course this should be diversity. I'm all for diversity but these are fucking cats you know. Have the courage of your convictions if you WANNA character. LGBTQ PAT yourself on your S. Just make clear. Then move on. No more of this blink blink and you'll miss a queer nece fuck old deuteronomy being trans cat. Who the fuck who talks like this? The problem is I think Hollywood has an identity crisis after the me too campaign. I really do all that shit gets exposed now and now they're being overly pc to due to the movies expense. Same thing happened to Charlie's angels they have to make it a story about feminism by adding Elizabeth banks and the cast was shit because they were too busy Z.. Making sure they have to resent represent. LGBTQ and people have colored one made sense of the story of the nature of the franchise didn't matter it's simply shouldn't matter if the actress is gay or not but they thought let's just include Kristen Stewart. So we'll get that covered. What they forgot is that has nothing to the screen? Same thing's happening with the Star Wars. Don't get me wrong star wars. You know they got a strong female lead and Star Wars and I think you know Daisy Z.. Z. Ridley the cast is fine. But it's GonNa make sense for the story. Not just to add diversity diversity seat I think they need to stop trying to woke up old Hollywood properties and just do the fucking work. Come up with a news story. I don't think you can just slot in diversity into a franchise from the seventies and hopefully you'll get it. WE'RE NOT GONNA get it in fact we're going to rebel against it and that's one of the reasons why cats belongs in the litter box and not in the movie. I'm AJ bands. And that was your podcast.

I'm oprah winfrey. Welcome to super soul conversations the podcast. I believe that one of the most valuable gifts you can give yourself is time taking time to be more fully present isn't your journey to become more inspired and connected to the deeper world around us starts right now. Shell stray astray so one of my favorite quotes from you comes from another book that you roll call tiny beautiful things. Yes and i love that quote. You say nobody is going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself whether you are rich or poor out of money or raking it in the beneficiary ridiculous fortune or terrible injustice. You have to do it no matter what is true no matter what is hard no matter what unjust sad sucky things have befallen you self pity is a dead end road. You make the choice to drive down it. It's up to you to decide aside to state park there. Turn around and drive out. I love that because thank you. I know you walk more than a thousand miles. Miles actually find yourself right but for anyone i think the essence of that quote lies in it's really about reclaiming yourself absolutely not so much about what you were talking about. The meaning of forgiveness is about accepting that you're not going to go back and change the past and i think sometimes we can get caught in the past. The injustice was so true or so great that you think now wait a minute. I'm if i continue you to make this claim against the thing about thing that happened to me or the thing that should have gone this way or that or the thing that i should have received and didn't in some ways that's how i will be redeemed by continuing to tell that story of complaint and what that quotas about everything about what you just said is about saying no i relinquish the the sorrows of the past and i'm going to now feed upon them and let them nurture what i need to go forward how i need to make my life out of the good things that i received the bad things that happen to me and that they're both gifts in the end you know i know you turn fifty this year. I remember when i turned fifty was a milestone for you in other ways. How did you feel turning fifty yeah. Absolutely i think fifty for me. Every decade has been a milestone and each one has led me in the direction of where i feel that i'm at right now and that what is this that the best way for me to articulate what fifty has meant to me. Is i finally get to put myself in the equation that i am part of the equation that i am not only about. What do you need and what can i give you and will you like me. If i do this. Instead instead you relate to that. I stepped into fifty and i thought you know what i am going to say. I need to sleep more. Y'all what do i want rather than what will make you happy. I think that we've talked about this before. We both have this people pleaser served. This is the female disease and some men have it too but what i figured out you don't my life is up to me and i've been preaching preaching this for years and my books i've been telling this in the form of my advice as dear sugar that you are responsible for your life and part of that you get to say if your bathroom is going to be really messy for example. Yes you get to say no and you get to say a bigger. Oh yes you know one of the things i learned after turning fifty is that you also have the right to change your mind because it used to be like oh my god. Why said you have the right to change your mind. Do believe everyone has a purpose. Absolutely yes and i know that your life has changed so much since after a while but you say your purposes still the same yeah well i mean that's the interesting thing i think i get that question over and over and while it was publishing listen twenty twelve oprah restarted her book club for it. There was a movie starring reese witherspoon. A lot of good things happened but in my experience dance all that stuff was wonderful but it was external the person i was the woman who wrote that book the woman who had apprenticed herself for years to the craft craft of writing so she could write that book and the person who really were on that emotional journey who discovered all the things i did on the terrail. Those was things are unchanged. They aren't changed by money or fame or having reese witherspoon. Pretend that she's you and you. I think i feel really fortunate that that happened to me when i was in my forties because i knew that i always stayed grounded in the the person i was all along and never losing track of that was never even a question more of this episode. After a short break support for this episode comes from honest tea for more than two decades honest has been on a mission to create great tasting healthy organic beverages and support their fair trade certified suppliers in fact for every fairtrade certified honest products sold the producer earns an additional amount of money that goes into a community development development fund at origin from there. A committee of farmers decides together how to spend their funds to improve their lives. The premiums fund things like bikes clean water water schools healthcare and vital farming equipment. It's amazing how much the small choice of what to drink when you're thirsty can mean to a lot of people isn't it by simply making the decision to purchase an honest beverage from ts to jews to lemonade. You can create a lasting positive impact on your life as well as others around the world visit. Is it honest tea dot com slash podcast to learn more about honest and how your small decision has a big impact. You know so many people see themselves. When you're writing you taught me how to be vulnerable and open and yet so many people still fear it. Why are we so afraid to open up ourselves when that same vulnerability in tooth is actually allows you to connect to people well. I think it's the stories that we've received about what strength is and what vulnerability is and in my work. I'm always saying part of writing your life. Just like in writing in real life is is revising and so every received narrative we have about what strength is is saying. Don't be vulnerable. Don't don't reveal yourself. Don't tell the truth. Don't admit to your flaws. Don't do what you did on television for years is parade need your flaws in front of millions of people you paraded other people's fears and sorrows and mistakes and tragedies and what happened is a bunch of people said they saw themselves neil and i think when it comes to vulnerability you. You have obviously been a great teacher to me and to everyone in this this room. These are my children. That's right and what you taught us and what. I hope that i've done in contributing. Oh you to that in my books as well is that actually that story about vulnerability being weaknesses ally that the strongest bravest thing we can possibly possibly do is tell the truth and i think that that's what vulnerability is that it is now so you went those thousand miles to find yourself. People always ask ask if you do again and you say you don't do overs. I don't well. It's you know as i was listening to you. Talk and i know i'm not alone in this. Uh every sentence out of your mouth. A little bell was rung inside of me and it was this recognition thing that you're talking you. Are this wise woman who tells us a lot of things but what you most importantly tell us is what we already know what we know to be the truth within us and i think that this idea india of regret is about again a false narrative of what a perfect life is if we go back and undo all the mistakes we made we wouldn't be the people we are are now and so i i say thank you for all the things i regret. Thank you for all the things that if i had known better i would have done differently partly because they taught me. They taught me who i am now and they also tested. We and i think that's a really important piece of the human experience. We don't want want our lives to be seamless easy. That's a boring life. I mean it's hard for me to say that as a mom because i want my children to live in a bubble and never have their hearts broken. They're never have those sorts of struggles that i've had and yet i know those are the things that made me and they're the things that made you. Yes and you have raised search. Cheryl and bryan have the most incredible children thank you so did you all together. Come up with a philosophy of how to raise these these kids who are fearless who are kind who are filled with grace who are curious who go to sleep with the bears ears well. You know it was interesting. I you told that that wonderful story about being on this film set and not knowing how to tuck in a child and i want to share a story with you about the making of wild so my daughter bobbi who's named after my mother bobby actually played the young me in the movie while she had just turned eight reese witherspoon place the adult may and bobby. My daughter plays the young me which was this incredibly emotional. Journey journey and what happened is the first day on the set. She was not there to actually work that day. She was just doing some costume stuff and she met laura dern who plays my mother so she was introduced to laura. Okay bobby this beautiful six foot tall blonde actresses going to pretend to be your mother and they're like nice to meet you nice to meet you and it just so happened that laura was in makeup at that time she had just been beaten up by the man who played my father and so she had this black i in this bloody face and my little eight year old daughter meets her. The director says to laura. I just wanna uh shoot some experimental scenes laura go stand at the end of this long hallway and he looks jean-marc valid the director at my daughter bobby and says this is your mother are run down the hallway and leap into her arms and so my daughter looks up at me and i go to what he says and she he runs down the hallway and she leaves cinta laura dern arms laura dern who she's just met whose looks like she's been beat up and she holds she holds onto laura like just a little love monkey and we can hear because laura's mike out we can hear my daughter moaning with pleasure as she's holding the industry injure. She says <hes> and i burst into tears because i knew what i've given. My daughter is what my mother gave of me. Just that innate sense that she was capable of deep love she knew how to leap into a mother's arms because i had loved her that way and you know what's really interesting to me. Oprah's you didn't get that ah and here we are. We took our paths those paths that were made clear to us at some point and we ended up at the same place so i think thank you mentioned that empty bowl. I have one empty bowl and one full bowl. I have the fullness that my mother loved me that all of that stuff she put in my bowl and i have the a father who didn't love me but what what happens with the sorrows and the joys and the triumphs and the losses is if we do live right i i think we use them always to nurture us down the path and sometimes it's a hard lesson and sometimes it's a beautiful one but if we keep going we end up in the same place charles straight.

Episode 206: A RuPaul Round Up

"The library is Open L. Louise by Kay Thompson L. Elise you need to call the front desk and get a hot oil cheap and for that room. Oh you'll hear and Curl Victoria secret. Call they won't they Wa- paperback what is she doing popping afar all doubt all nasty girl please back up next now line by a Beethoven. This net line a bad news gile. The Eiffel Tower is not in the woods. France right the outcome is done like they've been the past you way. Never been there girl Bucknell next the secret of the old honey. I'll tell you what the secret is out there doing herself. Somebody found out as she just grabs him over. Random cloth act like sheep is fixing it. Good God girl get a grip cray no for me and of course this is something you can't hear but can only see but the nuance of this clip. That I love the most is the way that Rupaul puts the book down when she's done reading it there's just this like tucked like their next. It is it is a moment where I'm like you know we've talked about Paul's acting in. Aj and the Queen and Rupaul sort of techniques and it is moments like that where I'm like girl you are the winner of this week's challenge Yeah definitely I love that. Yeah she has moments. I mean obviously like obviously. She spends a lot of this sketch and a lot of other sketches staring at the cue cards. She's forgetting. This is not library union where she stares. The camera doesn't look at anybody. Well you know and this was and I gotta you gotTa give it to her. Biella doing a live show when I mean as live is the reunions are. They're not they're pre taped of course aches. Were even higher here absolutely. This is so hard I could never in a million years do this. Her memory is garbage and she's the first person to tell you that she's like Kennedy Davenport her memory so bad for her like do so much of so many like live sketches in one night and for the most part you know get through it unscathed. It's really it was very impressive. I was super impressed. I've seen so many guests that are glued to the cue cards. Some you know. Some that are more versed in Improv. And comedy like it makes sense that they don't look at the cue cards Rupaul. They're they're there for reason and that's what you do and I the glasses reading challenge certainly helped. Oh Yeah I feel like she was like oh I have an idea definitely like light me just so you know Yes yes. I say if we're talking about little nuances that you can't hear. There's a moment when rupaul reads one of the men like he's like oh. I wouldn't you know not all is wanted to get crabs or something and you're not worth the crabs. You're not worth the crabs. And you know he reacts but the real reaction is from Kate McKinnon who waits a beat and then her mouth opens. Oh it was really A. Oh Yeah No. She was great she. I love you know a lot of times in SNL SKETCHES. There's like the eccentric character and everybody else who was like Whoa and like kind of just a lake kind of side. I look at them while they do their bit. You know there's Gillian. There's everyone else and I appreciate. That can hurt the character and like the frequency she gets to play is like the one in the audience. Who's into it and then it's then it changes the dynamic and I think it moves it along a little further than just like at a certain point. People have to like stop going why you know they have to have another another reaction and that's a fresh take you know yeah. Kate McKinnon good at that her character even in the thirsty cops seen also in the same thing right. She's still showing that I just loved her. Yeah yeah she's like you she she's like a you know. I don't know in a baseball game when things aren't going. Well Throw Kate Mckinnon and you know right right. Yeah yeah she'll shake it up. Yeah yeah she likes the high ones. So Y- I Overall I have to say I think the re this library reading challenge was maybe my favorite of this all the segments of the rue sketches. My favorite segment is something else but I think that was the most successful one for me. So maybe we could talk about why. I thought that this was kind of a love letter to drag race fans instead of it being over educational I mean. There was an is throughout the entire episode. This clear thesis of Rupaul in from the monologue to this reading challenge charade sketch. The lights went out in Georgia. Like all of that. There's this thread of. I'm here to tell you what's going on if you haven't heard right. And and she you know. She manages to put most if not all of her tag lines in. Snl right you have your naked drag. You have reading is fundamental. The lights went out in Georgia. You have it all there just to kind of teach the children in a way but this particular challenge while that was there seemed more like all right. We all get it she. I mean even the first time that she said. Oh reading is so important. There was laughs because people knew what she wasn't saying. You know right right. There are enough people who were in on the joke and even the people who got the look. How are you look girl note and then it was like well? We'll just we'll just believe that these were. Oh misers to Latrice Royale. That's what I'm believing that we were not stealing her BMW bitch. I'm a key or car toys. Yeah no it totally and I think that right there was a yes there were like people were in on the joke and I think because of that maybe this is why liked it is like they could just relax until like okay. Let's just watch this bitch do what she does you know? It's it's watching lip sync answer. Invisible telephones yes. Yes rupaul can do this in her sleep she can deliver these lines in her. Sleep like yes. The Nancy drew one had me rolling with the Harriet. And the spy girl throw by by the timing of that. It was so smart. Yeah no I mean all of them were good the Paris one where you know the trees and I appreciate it all. They even got Eric Carl in there with the Hungry Caterpillar. I I was. I was impressed even at this election. to be also part of the joke. Yeah so yeah it was. I thought it was well constructed. And you can tell that rupaul. Had A hand in the writing of the sketch. Does that make sense? Yeah I thought about that a lot. I was wondering how much he was informing some of these reeds and it it makes me think of Aj and the Queen when they would have these queens with these scripted reads and it was like just let them say what they would say. Yes I can hurricane. Bianca's the same thing like let's just riff and you captured on camera. You make edits later Yeah agree on. I thought if if I'M GONNA pick my favorite most successful one. I'm going to say it was either. The lights went out in Georgia or the Chad sketch. Oh sure I think. The Chad sketches the one. That really kind of kind of went viral and away or got the most attention and it's great. I think because it was a digital shore not alive. One rooms was immaculate. I mean his performance was perfect. He rate that was. I think there was another cut for time. Sketch DOT COM. Oh I didn't see baby no no no. I didn't see baby doctor. Oh maybe doctor was terrible. Good Yeah it was bad. The other the mining sketch. I saw that one. That was great. I understood why it was but I I appreciate it just like if you think about it. Here's Rupaul and Boeing Yang to gay men doing a bit on. Snl that's that has not ever have ever happened. You know what I mean. You know what I mean. Yes no that I mean it was. It was kind of like a dynasty moment. Right these BITCHY MATRIARCHS. Just kind of meeting. I'm surprised that they picked Old New York over that one. I mean I love Old New York. Do not get me wrong rings on an on an old hand or whatever. It was put. Rupaul was great and that one. I was surprised how comfortable he was. He knew who this was. Just singing along yeah. It was. Yeah but I I. There was something about the dynasty mind that just made me so giddy and you know what you probably put the finger on it. It's probably that it was bowing Yang interact with rupaul. And the slapping. Yeah I just love this lap. Yeah well you know and sometimes I feel like though I I almost like that it was cut for time and that it is so good because then it becomes sort of like a weight but did you see it becomes this little thing that like the the those the no of scene and I. I don't know that makes it better in a way. It's not exposed to so much oxygen. It doesn't turn Brown. You know we can Kado. Oh like an avocado okay. I was just making sure of Avocado Mary. You know before we talk more about. Snl thought now it might be a good time to stop and let our Mary's know what they are listening to. Well sure they are of course listening to another episode of all right. Mary all right Mary Right. Which is of course our podcast to all things drag race the world's drag race and the paradigm created this TV show. I'm Johnny I'm Laura and women. I'm all the women in parasite all women and And I'm calling and I this week. We are having a little bit of a ruth themed and otherwise. Just you know recent pop cultural themed catch up before things really get started with season twelve We just figured we. Catch a few tings rupaul related swings. Bdp bomb bomb. So we didn't lead with this but I think it's worth leading now into this discussion. Just kind of the monumental nature of Rupaul finally hosting show like Saturday night live. I also found that it was the second highest watched. Snl FROM TV viewers in Essono history which is gigantic really. Yes the first is will Farrell. And the second is this episode. Wow Oh my God that's crazy. That's that's great I it is I mean I think when you think about it. It's like while the bitch did it. You know like I feel like this is what Rupaul was setting out to do and I feel like if you listen back towards the tea and you know few years ago two thousand fifteen whatnot. It's a different rupaul. At different stages career but he is talking himself up to expand like this. And it's it's very easy to hear someone like that and granted. There's a lot more that goes into it than just positive thinking affirmations but like I said we can mention that in the monologue is well I mean he still keeps that story of his but yeah but I think there you. It is very important to recognize like the example. If you're someone who had an idea of like this is what I wanNA do and it isn't just like snap your fingers and it happens but lake. He won emmys he's hosted. Snl on the cover Vanity Fair. You know he's got a TV show he briefly at a talk show You know it had a book Has Higher has an empire. You know it's like it's pretty incredible. It's really really incredible and I think you come to recognize like Paul's drag race is just one piece of what he's doing Yeah and not for nothing but not only is his career forty years right like it's almost forty years long and drag races. What twelve years of that and sure I think that started it but he had to be scrappy and those beginning seasons of drag race. Yeah and it shows. Yeah it's I mean I when you really kind of it. Yes he certainly has a lot of money in a lot of you know a celebrity clout now but I think no one can say that that happened overnight or happened in a linear way or happen to the prime of his life. I mean the man's also almost sixty years old they think about that. It's like I'm I'm thirty five. There's other people who are at different ages or they're like oh well the windows past you know. I had a chance ten years ago and it's just unbelievable. It's like yeah you could be. You have no idea what the next twenty years could look like. And and I'M I. It's just really incredible. It really is when you look at the whole narrative. It's real incredible that he's this big now. Yeah definitely I mean to be honest and L. A. Huge Slot right with Justin Beiber. So yeah just in Beaver as he says I also think I don't think either of those correct. I'm always right. Mary my short. I think it's also worth noting. The interesting experience to be someone like Rupaul who is now running into celebrities that are like. Oh my God I when ten years ago. They wouldn't have done that hot name now. You know and I wonder that his experience is being that person now. I would have to imagine at this point. He sees throw it because like that's how in forever is like. Oh you know one day you're in the next year out And I think like yeah you become kind of like the one that people say. Oh I really should go say hi to him or I should really go. You get a picture with him like you. Just become that because it's never about you never about you. And so like. I think. I'd like to believe that Rupaul sees that like nothing that happens in Hollywood has anything to do with him. Nothing that anybody in Hollywood is doing has to do really with him. It might in part to do with him but it mostly to do with themselves show so I don't know I would. I would actually think in some ways. It's like having kids later in your life is you. You bring so much more life experienced to that you know so like being at his peak of your career after four years of hustling like. I think that's healthy in a way. Yeah you kind of really knows who is in his circle. Yeah Yeah yeah absolutely. Let's just take a quick second to talk about. The Lights. Went Out in Georgia. You obviously you know this reference. Yes Oh yes I know it and my grandchildren now call. And I've known you for a long long long long law and tie sorry. That was my legs opening. Seven alleged haunted seven eleven. So this is. I was so tickled that they were making this reference and I think you referenced it or made you alluded to it earlier. But there's somebody that was better than Rupaul in the scene. Let's talk about her. Yes when we talked about it before. I said it was Cecil Tyson. But she's not in this excessively strong potentially in Sicily Tyson is great which unfortunately not Sicily tasted host. Snl Pam tillis musical PM. Till is but I think that cecily strong wise magnanimous and was such a clear fan of of of this of like wing is doing. She knew what she was doing. And I yeah I was just so in off her. It was like that scene in doubt. We're Viola Davis steals the scene from Meryl Streep sure. Sure I to be honest with you. I think Ru Paul would have shined harder if she knew all the lines. You know 'cause this group Paul like whenever Rupaul does the let's go from in so many instances whether it's aging the queen or it's the Chad sketch. She always finds a way to add that in because she loves that. Mommy dearest reference And I feel like this is also a reference that she fucking loves and needed to know the lines. That's all she just needed to be off the cue cards that she could can really you know? Feel those shoulder pads because she she did see a little bit lake. You know kind of like Rebecca de Mornay and Mary. Gross in feds. She was the Mary Gross. Oh you mean wait Rupaul. Was Mary Gross. Yes Oh she's Tallin standing there. Yeah shoes giving me big ant energy. I just love this type of Drag Lake to be honest with you. I know everybody loves the Amazon RU and whatnot but like this would also be fine. Oh vis ernestine drag giving us ernestine Charles in we're going to reference or a scene. I mean she was definitely also a little orison price. She was the glasses I mean it was. I did love this kind of this ruin drag I. This is the best drag she did on this. Show Yeah Yeah. This is great. Yeah I thought. Eighty Bryant was great reacting to things. It yeah it was a well crafted sketch and especially especially strong probably was the one who drove it. You know what I mean. There's need and you could tell at. She was so good she was so good. Yeah an eighty Bryant. I feel like like in three different sketches. She had the tough role of being the lake. Straight man reactor and she's really good at it like that's that's even harder because she doesn't have any funny lines. What was the third one I know she was in the reading challenge? I thought was funny reading challenge. She was in Designing Women Challenge and she was was she the mom in the charades challenge the white mom and this rates challenge challenge Sketch Jesus Right. All of these challenges challenges challenges the format. I knew how to talk about. Rupaul is I liked the reading mini challenge. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah the The library reading challenge the acting challenge in the restaurant the active challenge there was the charades challenge was the singing challenge and Old New York old nerve a hosting challenge of doing the opening number and then The Chad sketch was the runway. Challenge run my. Yes yes that was a. Yeah really had to do it. All stop and Frisk I call it. Stop and Frisk a thirsty and hops. Wine was the compensate yet. Shiite was a communist. Didn't have to sell anything fine. A point on it. Well I don't know some of those well. I should say the lights went out in Georgia addressed. Maybe she could've said she could've yes. She could've maybe. She sewed or choreographed. The Justin Bieber dance which I didn't watch. You're very lucky. I know that Justin Bieber is a musician has talent and things. He seems like somebody that I wonder if anybody is keeping an eye on. Did he have lime disease or something and he was out of commission for a bit and I don't. That's what I heard. I already was like in an iron lung. People I mean he's I guess he's better which is great. I don't know what these are just things that I picked up at random. Do not write me. Letters don't add me Bro. Don't ask me Bro all right Mary. Yeah Justin you know I. I just don't know how to place him right now in life and in the media just yet. It's kind of a mustache thing going on with the late. I think people need to know if they can and then if they can do and if they can't teach teach exactly teach teach the children so okay well. I'm glad that we've had all of that. Did were there any last. Chance LIP SYNC for rupaul. Snl Oh no. I mean I didn't watch on. Snl I always kind of struggle with the end when they say everybody and then everyone has to kind of turn and find someone to hug. And I I never liked watched it because there's always somebody who's like all wave at the audience again and I would. I feel like sometimes. The host dances with the ban. Then so I could see doing his his elbow dancing and maybe lip synching a little. I don't think that happened okay. Happening some Queens never have to lip sync. She got through without ever look thing she got through. Yeah well good for good for RU. You know. There are some Queens. Yes and I would say if we were to come and also if we were to compare this to like a a regular season if there was a pizza Queen I would need to give it to her. I would say the Pizza Queen. You know cecily strong CECILY Tyson but the the BSA episode. I know you say Khloe Feinman. And let's talk about this she is. I love her and I I have not been watching a lot of. Snl This season. And I should She's not on or featured as much. That's a problem is that she's not an in very much and she's a genius. She's so funny she so nuanced her impressions of women acting are capturing all of the important nuances. She gets it she gets that. It's in the details. I just I love her. I love that sketch so much. The sketch you mean the bit that she the bit of the Weekend Update doing the Oscars review the. Yeah the women women acting. Yeah oh by the steering wheel. Yeah yeah she. She certainly stole weekend. Update no question. I will say if we're on the topic of women on snl stealing weekend update. You know 'cause I've been talking about it probably for a year. Is Heidi Gardner doing the the teenager? That does youtube reviews of movies. Oh I she's the one who's taking her kids to her sister's yes that's yeah. Oh she's great to show. It is spot on I. I cannot not laugh at it every single time. I see Heidi Gardner do it. And Yeah it's early accurate and so funny. I think she is one of the most talented members on that is so unsung. Because obviously you have you have kate McKinnon. Who is brilliant? It's like another kristen. Wig Molly Shannon like. There's some really great women that totally outshine the men on. Snl these past few seasons right. You have sesame strong Melissa. Various in your Kate Mckinnon. Heidi Gardner Eighty Bryant Modem. It and now Khloe Feinman who hasn't had a lot of stuff to do but hopefully we'll have more to do especially after this weekend. Yes she's I hope so. I hope that this finally people are like okay. Please do give her something and if you do want more of her. I was like briefly diving into I'd seen one or two things she's done before I've seen her do this hearing they'll acting before that's like her bit but there is a. I watch just before we started recording. I found a clip of her. It was her auditioning for a UCB thing. And like or twenty seven to seventeen an her doing a series of characters and it's so good and so specific and. I just feel like if you want more of this. There's a lot more of it on the Internet and on her instagram. Well that's good to know yeah. I'm a huge fan of the Heidi Gardner Khloe fine. Men's of Ood that are coming up particularly me with Heidi Gardener. I just there's something about that character that I'm like you are super talented and same with the the taking my sister's the boxers wife or whatever like she can clue in on those nuances in the similar way of WHO BRIDESMAIDS KRISTEN WAG KRISTEN WIG. Yeah Yeah I agree. Yeah she's Great. It's I these are reasons to watch us in L. again the women the women. Yeah absolutely. I mean granted there some great men on them the episode four or the women. It's always yeah and again I'm I'm K- it's the women of parasite right right. But like I don't know the title of the Film Diane. I know for folks who don't know regarding about there was a whiz a A segment from the independent film. Spirit awards where it was the L. A. Gay men's chorus singing. You know the best moments in film this year and it was a genius and thank you to the Mary's who tweeted us about it and check to see if we knew about it. It was eight which is so good. I there was that one part was like fish and I was like I love. I love that I know why but I can't put into words I just don't lie and I'm like I love being gay and like totally and I don't know who wrote it. I wish that that person was credited. The course of Los Angeles. I know he's had some troubling times recently and I hope that this moment just kind of sparks some more. They have a new director this year. Who is who you saw the back of his head while he was directing and I just hope that they continue to grow from this. So Mary's of you feel like donating go on over to. Gmc La's website and and give them a little shout out or shouted out on twitter or something because they're a great organization for the city of Los Angeles so that part. I was excited about then. I was excited about Alex. Newell and Laura Dern and all of the gay shit like so it was just like this beautiful moment that came together and then she won the Oscar. Yeah and there's there's nothing more joyful than watching Laura dern during that thing in the independent film spirit awards she. She clearly thought they were just going to make the one joke and then and then she realized she was at and she just couldn't if she was so overwhelmed and so and I was like this woman. This woman I love this woman I like woman and I may have not loved. Her performance thought her marriage story. Performance was Oscar caliber. But then I was like well now. We have to give it to her. You got to give it to her. She's dern is a pizza queen put that on a TOPAC Lori is Pizza Queen Fabulous Barry. Let's bake it. Let's do a yeah she is. There's Diane waste is a Pizza Queen. There are there whoopie Goldberg isn't he? Yes Colleen Camp Colleen Camp Pat Crawford. Brown is the Pizza Queen. Oh yeah these are. These are the women. Laura dern Laura dern winning the Oscar. I was really happy because I was really happy for Diane Ladd for sitting over arm other mother that was her mother or my God. That was so beautiful to watch. Yeah little moment. Yeah and there was a great picture I saw in read it. And it was like a side by side of Diane Ladd and Laura Dern from like the seventy s from Diane landers probably there for whatever or she was nominated for Alison. Live here anymore. And then there's a picture of her with like a nerdy little Laura dern and glasses then the picture from this year of Laura Dern Diane Ladd the Oscars it was just like oh I could i. This is great. This is great. Oh Wow yeah that whole moment the whole weekend the Laura dern moment is the only thing that's disappointing about it is that it's going to go away. I know well yeah I mean. She's having such a great moment right. Yes she was a big little lies little women which we talked about little women. Have you seen? I have not seen at Mary. Oh I is not normally my thing and I really loved it. I loved it. That's what people say. Yeah it was. They who who asserts ronin? I have to look out for right. Is Grace Sure? Yes yes your show. Yeah I mean listen Row Sheen. I'm learning you know I'm learning. I traded to Roggin European. Each one of us piece on your okay so so yes okay. So sell me on little women Because you know what last? I heard. They're not that little what's little women. Ru. What little women. Well it wasn't a little so little women. Okay reasons to watch little women. Okay so your show. Ronin is fabulous and she has a great monologue and you may have seen on twitter where she says women like women and it's just the way she goes like women. I've so many memes using that which. I love fabulous. Yeah Yeah my favorite Oscar nominees women. Okay so sears. Your Ronin Florence. Pugh and she has a coach so she was nominated for best boarding actress. She was in midsummer she is so like. She's just so great and she has this one scene that sorry Mary she the one that was in that movie about women. Smoking in the eighties. mothers smoking in the eighty S. So that was Francis. Ha That was directed by and starring Greta Gerwig who directed little women. Oh my God. Oh my God okay. That's why I thought there was a connection to Francis hot. Okay now like yeah thank you yeah so Greta Gerwig who directed lady bird if she starts with your Sharon. Yeah so your show road sears. Shut Row Sheen. Roisin rogie drew drudges. Drew Jauregui's I see you. I see you. I saw you saw you talking to Jimmy cousy so Florence pugh and you didn't see midsummer. Of course I did. You did well. She's she's permits. I know I know before it's okay. And if that was the one from Francis Hobbit now remembering it's Greta Gerwig. Yeah so she's Great. She has some really great scenes. I would say Jane. How shells in it. If you're a you know if you WANNA see a Broadway actress in a small role Meryl Streep Meryl Streep is fine. Honestly you know what I think. Merrill isn't really old enough yet. Like they had to age her up and it was like couldn't they get Joan Plow right? Oh I see well what I do. Love is all of the memes about her talking about the young people of Meryl Streep being like everybody's so young on the set and Timothy Timothy Shama. Shallow may just the way she says his name. Like Bernadette Peters says I know that reference but I don't know I learned that recently great but no so you should look up Meryl Streep saying Timothy As name Timothy Charlemagne I. Don't I know that people find him attractive and I'm not here to take that away from anybody but I just want to raise my hand for those that are on my camp that I'm not attracted to him. Yeah I I. I don't think of him as kind of like this very self serious cousin at Christmas. Who were all over? And he comes over and he's holding a book and he's reading a book in the Living Room. Everyone's you know having Christmas celebration in the other rooms and you go in there and you're like oh tim say what are you? And he's like catcher in the Rye and you're like Oh for God's sakes like Fulco or oh yeah well maybe it'd be like a Cobra. He'll pronounce it wrong and it'll be like it'll be like versus where no one's told him and it'd be like anti indeed. Does he know she's like yeah? No I know I need to have one thing on him. I know he's pronouncing it wrong. And that's that's able people are obsessed with him and that's fine. I have my own obsessions. And yes. So He's also in this movie which kind of also turns me off if I'm being honest and that's fair. He's made the weakest link of it but it's it doesn't take much away because so much of its Laura. Dern is really great she oh God okay no Laura dern has this one moment that's worth seeing the whole movie. This is one moment where she just lake. Because she's such a cheerful kind of loving presence and then she gets real with Joe at one point. And it's it's not like a twenty-seven it's just this is what I wanNA believe. Laura dern really got her Oscar for was this moment oh okay all right. See Marriage story either so like I'm celebrating. Laura dern win on Laura dern alone. Yeah well did you see big little lies of course saw marriage story? Oh I saw her performance. Okay yeah okay this lead top. I'm yeah I the CLIPS ALONE. I was like okay. Maybe I need to see marriage story. Yeah I just yeah. It's you would definitely want to play her if we did. We reviewed it. You definitely want to play and I would play what's your name. Who's in at Merrill? Weaver she is a little role. She's great she's she's the best movie right all right well. Mary. Let's. Let's change gears but before we do. Let's take a quick little break. I could do that all right Mary. I wondered if you wanted to check in on your progress of Aj and the Queen you said you watched a couple episodes. I did did I did. I've watched a couple more episodes. I watched I guess I've watched the fourth and the fifth one still not there. You're not to the point where I kind of want you to be. But four and five is getting there l. It is no and I wanted to say for folks who've listened to our part one on aging the queen and I was like. Oh my God this show. I don't know I'm not sure. And it was like push through push through push through push through and I was like Oh grown so I did. And so the fourth episode was Oh I'm blanking on that one now of course Nashville Oh that was. I have to go back and watch it. The most recent one that I watched was with the Bob macky museum. Yes okay. Yes that's episode five and I do want to know your thoughts on on that episode because that's when things started to adjust bloom and blossom a little bit. I have to say yes. I agree I think there was a moment in episode four. Oh episode for Kennedy Devonport was really God. She was great she was she was right. Yes yes yes. That's right were that yes. I forgot that was episode for an Reu Paul. You know it's okay to fall down. Get up look sickening and making them eat it that moment when she got up. We've got a yes chandelier. I clasped I collapsed. Because that's what you do. So yeah the Bob macky episode. Yeah boy the show bloomed. Oh my God I was like. Oh now we're doing something. Yes and you can tell the difference by the directing and the writer. So the writing of the Louisville episode was very obviously Rupaul and Michael Patrick King because it was very focused in the drama of the drag Queens Right. You had the whole issue with Chad. Michaels right who is not bad. He thought he was actually pretty good. Okay and all I listen. My Bar was low. I was at Eureka levels and so I expected I expected like who say we use trashy and then a long pause. No I was just the dialogue. I don't think served show that. Yeah I agree. And that heart. We're like Rupaul. Was like elbow dancing to kind of inspire her to keep performing and the rule. You love to dance like that. Love the colors love to Dan. You know well I will say the. It was a little over the top but very important for a show. Starring Rue Paul. The that particular episode for me was all about the moment when Rupa's like get up. Get off the couch and chats like. I don't want to know you have to give that speech about like what are you. GonNa do right And what did she say? What would share do right? Yeah that whole little moment. I thought was very Paul Thesis. So in that sense like okay. That's why repeal needed help right this episode the fifth episode and this. I love the sixth episode. The seventh episode is true. Joji drew judgy. Reginald Reggie am I saying it right A. and just if we're looking ahead episode ten is Rupaul and Michael Patrick King Again. And it's the it's the best one of theirs so. I believe it now I after getting e just getting episode five. I'm like okay. This show is like I can see how this could get real good. It's getting there. It's yeah we're to the point where I'm like I could. I could support this going on. You know I mean there's one part where I don't know which episode it was. But where someone bumps into Lewis or Louis something and he goes bitch on blind and I was like. Oh for God's sake we know we know I am like I. Can't that remains that remains it raw in my Mary. It will continue. It's an every single fucking seen that he's in. I hate it. Yeah I do I will say the reward wiz that little COPS FUZZY LITTLE. But oh I saw. I saw that peach and I was like Oh Mary Mary. Yeah so the Bob macky episode this actor very well could have been played by a just had his name at anyway. There's he's kind of like the see list version of who I think could have played this role like a heap seeing somebody else in that role. But it's not him. Do you know this actor. Yes he was on he. He's always plays like this kind of gay. He's a gay character actor. He was unwilling grace. He was in the season. Two of the comeback. He played the guy who was on the children's show who is the Caterpillar. Okay the guy when she goes to set when she tom. Yeah Tom to talk about holly a big daddy's time. God Big Dick Energy Tom. Thomas so hot and season to keep the head on. Yeah yeah well. I'm glad I'm glad that you're coming up to what I think is the turning point of the season which is season six. I love episode not season. I love episode six. I love it. I think it so well done and it might be a little over the top but I think it's well done and yet and the Bob macky stuff. I think that was all in ru Paul's vocabulary so she was also able to. Yeah just rolled off of her tongue. Yeah you know I will say that. I felt like everything that happened with that Guy Museum. I was surprised yet. They resolved it but I felt like the whole idea was. Oh you know. We're kind of leaving everybody with a little bit of starshine and sprinkles dust you know fairy dust and I felt like with him. His last lines were like. I've just been so lonely. I've only had eighteen visitors in two years. We'll see you like it was such a sad note to leave on. You know what was okay for me. I think I was kind of like well. That that didn't we didn't gloss over that you know and maybe that is and you know it just it. It definitely made me think about like well. That's that's a reality. Is the lonely old queen in the small town. It's a sad sad truth and not pathetic just like it's just like. Oh that's tough. You know that there's a humanity bear and I think they did a good job of showing the humanity of that and not just making him a troll. It was just I guess I in the fantasy of the show. I wanted to happier ending for him. That's all absolutely I. I hear that I mean granted. Didn't he wasn't creeping on Rue. Yes but I didn't feel like it was playing off his lake. Him being lecherous. I felt like the moment she said. Well Whoa he stopped. I just thought they were having a moment. That's right right. They were getting into the scene. Yea Yeah I hear that and yeah it would have been a little adorable if there was a little fling. They're not GONNA lie. Yeah I thought even if it was just a one night like you know. Stop on by the next time. You're in town you know like I. I kind of love the idea that the character of robber would treat himself to a you know a little you know little one night fling to distract him from his woes. I think that especially to older gay men to older. Fay Gay men dressed up hooking up. That's you know you do not see that on TV. You know like when when we see Mickey in bed with the guy in season two of the comeback. That's revolutionary. What are you doing? Oh Oh read them naked. See Okay back. It will never cease to be less than my favorite show. Yeah we'll always do everything just right and and I'll always find new things to love about you. Know Right Right Okay well so you have. Wh five episodes left six seven eight nine ten yum so looking ahead look forward to little rock. It's really fabulous. The women in it are great. Graham and season seven you or season sorry keeps you know what I mean. I know challenges. You say seasons yes so raid you season two Alvian so so episode seven is I believe Latrice and mony cart. Ooh Okay all right. I'm excited about that. I I know they're going to be great. I mean I know Nico who and you know the trees is going to. Latrice is going to be there. I don't latrice good. Is She a good actor? GonNa keep the sense Mary. Okay well you know because you know you never know. I was surprised at Mariah's nuance. Oh Yeah Mariah Mariah yes. She played very like she had one moment. She had some like reaction shot where I was like. That is good acting. She's good I Love Maria. I'm so happy to see Mariah doing well but I was eight. Jolie what gender changes. Jade was okay of the three. I think she hannity wasn't yet. Kennedy was the funniest Kennedy surprisingly funny. Yeah I love Kennedy candidates. She's so funny. Yeah I the makeup bit like be. Yeah it was all very good. Yeah all right well okay. So we'll we'll save the rest part two slash three. Yeah totally for another discussion. Is there anything else that we kind of missed in our Rupaul? Roundup no just you know I think we were. I think much like Laura. Dern is having a moment I think ru pauls having a moment right now and I think we we should celebrate the things that are celebrated in two thousand twenty so Including Parasite Winning Best Picture at the Oscars Mary. How how happy did that make you? And I don't really ever care about the Oscars but there was just something so great about when I saw that movie knowing that I actually saw something really really different and really well done to the point where no matter what. The campaigns of a marriage story once upon a time in Hollywood no matter how much money they put into those campaigns parasites still one. Yeah Yeah and made history as the first foreign language. Best picture you know. I think I'm so yeah. I'm so proud of it. It's just such a good movie and I'm so proud of the cast that like in a way they're being recognized because they were all so good and like the movie is. It's just such a great movie and I don't know like there's a number of reasons why I'm sure at one but I guess it's like I feel like if you look at the grand like the story of the United States in twenty in the history books. I love that. We have flake xenophobic president. Donald trump right now and then like a foreign language picture and immigrant of a movie winning. Best Picture at the Oscars you know. Yeah about the rich and the poor about the rich and the poor like I just feel like. It's like remembering that when you look at you know when you look the seventies when you look at Nixon and then you look at the movies that were being made and you look at the art that was being made. And it's like it's just really. It's it's always interesting to look at those contrast and look at the responses and I think what's even cooler about this is that this is such a relevant response but from a totally different cultural ends definitely definitely and you know. I think bungalow is said in past press things and interviews and stuff that it's like a lot of American movies have come from Korean ideas and it's about time that y'all start reading the subtitles and watching our movies and I just I love that. I love that. This was an international film. Winning film winner and an Oscar film winner right like it doesn't matter it can be in both categories. Yeah Oh yeah and I thought that was so great that it was like this doesn't disqualify it from being best picture and apparently. I don't remember the channel but lake after parasite one on Youtube. Now there's like two hundred Korean movies with subtitles all like available for free. So it's Kinda like do your research you know and I it's you know. I don't know that's exciting. That's great I feel naked said maybe at the Oscars like if you can get over the one inch hurdle of subtitles. There's a whole world of of storytelling that opens up for you and I thought well ain't that that's that's a read. Mama. That's a read you know. That is the real super real. I mean think about how many people go to the opera but won't go to a foreign film. Yeah Yeah and I certainly you know I'm not above it. I get like oh I don't feel like having a read along but you know to be honest. I had a you forget to. I had to put on subtitles for broad church. You Know Lake and drag race. Uk Anti Grace UK. So like it's fine honestly like I've been watching. I've watched the crown with Libya Coleman this season with we'll be coleman and that show is so dense that actually the subtitles helped me like take everything in sure. Sure it was same. With game of thrones I mean I spoke asked so many people that put the subtitles on. Game of thrones it. It's the same fucking thing guys. Yeah it's it's I think anyone who hasn't seen parasites like only subtitles. Like Oh my God. This movie is so great. And there's there's so many sequences that don't have subtitles. That are amazing. And there's no dialogue. Yeah Amazing I've yeah like you don't even need to know what the conversation is. Well the coffee table scene is happening. Got Seen Oh my God. That's seen this. I won't say I won't say anything anything down there. And Yeah I just and the women of parasite women full of women. And that's the thing I've been given the. Yes freshest gays thing I've been given this year and a variety of women strong women you know like Conniving Women Women Smart Women Funny Women Women Women Women Right. What does she says women women and I'm so tired. Love Her Can't wait to see that movie bombshell. I think best hair and makeup for the Oscars. Yeah sorry I went back to the Oscars. I shouldn't have but I just thought about bombshell because of women. Yeah I still have to see it. I am very very excited to see that you know like would not. Even though I haven't seen it I wouldn't be like devastated. If Charlene Darren had like had a surprise win you know oh I see Yeah Yeah. It was Judy Garland that one. Yeah Yeah Renee Renee Zellweger. Yeah Vizo Egger thank you Renee Zellweger. She was the only one that she didn't think on that stage. Yeah that's true I know. Guy Bob Percy Travis Raylene. Mock ranch wows ash mom boundary. Barry Mon Mon. What's her she's Jane. Mon Mon Battery Mount Sash Mohali Holly Jolly come on appropes pro anyway. Any any other Rupa around. I will say the kind of end our discussion anything not explaining that like. There's one person who knows what the hell that was survivor. Fans no survivors. Yeah bad yeah. Send US gifts of that season. Mary's if you get it the only one I know is the only one you know which is unfortunate because season forty s coming up and it's going to be amazing moment so season twelve drag race. I don't know if you had any more time to ruminate on these queens. I've been following a lot more of them on twitter and INSTAGRAM's and I getting more and more excited by some of these queens. I will say I think hiding 'cause it is absolutely fucking adorable like so adorable. Jan Sport every clip. That comes out. I'm just reminded about how talented she is. And I am nervous for Britta because I think she will get the Miss Congeniality at it. Instead of winning the season like she probably should Those are some predictions. I'm excited to see if that plays out. That's a that's a very specific prediction. I'm very keen to see what ends up happening. I have not been following along at all. I usually do past few seasons like I've done. My Research Lake found some favorites to get excited about and this one. I mean the only thing I know is there was something going around. There's some lip sync by Heidi and closet. That's supposed to just be a work medley or something like that to be incredible and like they're like Oh this is the lip sync assassin of the season. They will say that. I think. Mercedes Amman diamond may have been there LIP SYNC. Assess the season eleven. I don't think that's true. I don't think I think she was. But you know sometimes they say that. And it's like okay in like in certain performances but when it comes time if it comes time it might not be that Queen Song so So I don't WanNa like expect anything but yeah. I don't know I mean I've seen activity on twitter but I guess I've just been like I don't know I guess kind of saving up all of my Lake draggers energy for drag race when it finally happens I get it I get it. I like kind of going in a little bit more informed of where they're coming from. I don't know it makes me kind of love them a little bit more but I will say I've seen gee-gee good and I remember my first impression of her as she's new she's in her bedroom. Kind of drag but this queen is this queen is a performer. G G good no matter. How young and inexperienced. She is another one of those young Queens. I think it's just going to come in and take the crown so good. I think is like high up there on my list now. Yeah Yeah I've I've been kind of excited about her and I've seen a little of her and I think she re tweeted sub tweet about how drag shows should all be from like seven to ten. Pm and I was like okay. Well I like her. I you know so. Yeah I'm I'm very honest. Just from the the Queen's I'm really kind of looking forward to all of them I thought I'd be more like Oh God another season but like did has been a while so I'm ready. I'm ready Yeah Bitch. I'm ready to and it's not an all-star season so there is a new energy you know what I mean Yeah Yeah I can't wait for me. Prediction wise. I just can't wait to find our pizza. Queen two to find our. Maybe who knows who knows what's GonNa for me. It's going to be brought out for sure I love. I mean I think you got to see them and see how they show on the show. Because I feel like we could look at like a like when we know about the Queen's at the meet the Queen's point and like okay who do we think we're GonNa love no matter what and I don't think I would have identified mon exchange. You know what I mean like. I don't think that would have to me at that. Point is like Oh. You're my pizza queen. I may have just thought. Lake your great but you know there. She was not ready.

"Zai-qing what's going on I know it's been a while since you may have been out of the house living life like you used to but you know what? There is the open road that still is out there and you should probably reintroduce yourself to it in a Mazda. I was lucky enough to drive around in nine the last couple of months and I have to say the C. UV lineup by Mazda is pretty wonderful. These vehicles are masterfully crafted. They have elevated design that's. Reflected in every detail from the controller knobs to the steering wheel, it's all there. So if you want more information on the MAZDAS UV lineup including the first ever see it's thirty GOTO MAZDA USA dot com slash iheart, and don't forget to explore their strongest finance options guys Mazda is bringing you the most incredible CV lineup in the market so that you can say hello to the world again these Mazda CDs featuring explorer designed that is distinct and sleek with an aggressive stance. Just like me giving the impression, the cars moving even while standing still again, you've seen instagram picks people a look at it, and they're like that dude, so fast, and how does he give me that impression from a still photograph and the answer is attention to detail that's what Mazda brings to their design. Also, the Interior is crafted with an essential EST approach. In every detail, every stitch that's where we differ my interior is a mess Mazda has more twenty, twenty IHS top safety pick. Plus models than any automaker as of July twenty twenty for more information on the Mazda. C. UV lineup including the first ever see X. Thirty go to Mazda USA dot com slash iheart, and don't forget to explore some of our strongest finance options. Hello everybody ill that he'll come round. We'll rounding second into third. That is Ricky Henderson, with another stolen base, the Oakland, A.'s Legend is really on fire today I don't know why a lot of that I'm just thinking old baseball cards that I love. In. My Heart. I'm miles stj Dan what to talk frequently about what's I mean, it's it's quite literally. All you can stomach nonsense buffet. Start Off I. Guess Apple had a little bit of a event as I like to call it. I don't know what's new because I feel like every time I, watch it on my new. That different Oh there's an IPAD air. Now, what will you what was before? A, pro, and now there's a thing. There's a new what I don't know. Sounds like cool stuff. Anything that came out I mean just smaller versions and cheaper versions of the IPAD is basically like what happened with the last video launches like if you invested in an IPAD in the last year, you're looking like a real dummy right now because the new research cheaper and better. Idiots soups who invest in an IPAD, steel and. You don't invest in one right that's that's that's how they'd be doing it Another thing I keep seeing is the do Gerrita. Yes are you seeing you guys seen this? You heard about this day. So excited, I have a reason to go back to red lobster. Let's do it. Oh you stopped going to red lobster. You Heathen Ira I'm really showing my ass right pandemic stopped you all. You should see me I. Was There Day One? Doors that Eric Andre mean being like. Red lobster teaming up with mountain dew. To create the fucking do Berina. Give it. Okay. I don't know what the fuck they say is a top secret recipe and they say that they're pairing it with Cheddar Bay biscuits climb. Okay cool. Like. You know I don't know Bro, their parents as give me three of those and three bags of biscuits and work. Yeah I guess I mean, look this is probably one. If it's a mock tale I know Jack O'Brien will be just whatever he'll. He's on at the moment. Exploring the moons of Jupiter. That he's probably rejoicing for this. And I'm sure many are as well materialize into a red lobster with do Garrido already at the table. Oh. Wow. Okay. I, like that ready for. next up scientific American. For the first time in their one, hundred, seventy, five year existence they are endorsing a presidential candidate and. Donald Trump. Mostly. Because he said explosive trees. No. Of course Joe Biden. On the heels of we didn't even get to on the show that you're gonna hear a later on. But like he had a comment where scientists were telling him, Hey guy you kinda like need to check the science on this because it's not. It's GonNa get worse like don't just focus myopically on sweeping up the leaves and making sure there's no trash under there that little fires loved burn they're like, no. Also, the climate science and he's like it's going to get cold very soon you just wait. And that person just like, yeah I wish science agreed with you how it works. A Diet clapback but that's most we can do these days unfortunately. So shut up to scientific American verb picking a real one. A real one in the sense that they'd say they were willing to acknowledge what they don't know and say Yeah I'll defer to the science on this ego. Because even the way trump even refers to science in general like as if it's some asshole who lives down the block from him, he's like I don't think science even knows what they're talking about. Yes, you should have seen science. You should've seen science at my holiday party. took. A mess everywhere. Trust that guy. You. Like that I do I. Love that. I love when you get that devilish laugh in you also the mandal. laurean season two. Yes. Did you see it? I actually embarrassingly have not but I saw it pop up on all the fees and I was like, Oh, I gotta watch that F. A GIF okay. Of One part and I didn't see it either. But it was enough to make goal. How and it was a speeder bikes they were like going off a cliff like they were off roading on speeder bikes anytime as the star wars franchise starts playing around with the vehicles are like the physics of the film that we weren't used to seeing normally speeder bike I'm thinking end or even through trees like. But like off on. Pop in whatever the fuck I don't know if I'm you. Down or like when Laura dern straight of center, fuck and ship into that fleet at light speed Tony you're not gonna lie I like that. Shit because I was like I always thought about like how would you do that? Yeah me too. Why was that? Not Why was that? Not just the thing I mean I. Guess You don't want to have like. Kamikaze ships and stuff I don't to promote that. But like just make that just get some would come on can't do that with other big. Forget it. I don't. You Know Baby Yoda's out here I mean we're not here for the Babu Frick ratio that comes along with elevating the voice of Baby Yoda. Right. But whatever I guess whatever I guess that's what is happening. With that whole whole series and then finally. A bit of good news. For Briana Taylor's family. Louisville mayor has confirmed. There was rumors going around in the beginning of the day saying it's seems that there's going to be a settlement coming. In was probably the largest settlement that the city has ever paid out. It turns out it's going to be a twelve million dollars settlement and there will be some significant police reforms that will be implemented. Depending on you know the level of justice you were seeking. This could be bittersweet at the very least. It's a step in the right direction for around. Taylor's family specifically So I know that they're going to say like the they're going to try and end no knock warrants. They WANNA. Try and make sure they incentivize more police actually live in the city. And the very least doing the bare minimum which is having social workers respond to like Mental Health Calls Rob because we've seen you know in the last few weeks that's precisely the kinds of things that we need to be shifting responsibility away from the police rights on. Yeah big big talk. Let's see him do it. Yeah So with all that and also see this. Prince Harry is trending. Oh, because his birthday what a loser Probably, an old guy birthday by.

Like a premium JV allowed ecosystem and panoramic roof, the all new raft. Ford LTd, Toyota, let's go places JBL and clarifier registered trademarks of Harman international industries, Inc. A lot of fans. John rocca. Jeff Snyder back for another movie review your loved art glass want. So we thought we jump on top of another film this one starring Liam Neeson another one of his like revenge films that he's been experiencing here in this later part of his career. This one is called cold for suit not frigid chase. As Matt knows and likes to call the Jeff we went saw the sidelines goods green room. What's your overall feeling about this movie, man? This is spoiler discussion. Letting spoil in the movie stabbed now, go see and come back, and we'll talk about a Jeff I was disappointed over. I thought it started out strong. Yeah. I'd seen the original with still on scars. It's from the same director. Peter Molin, Hans better Mohan, who's a really talented directorate and did this movie the beautiful country in two thousand and four that I loved, but he's sort of following in the footsteps of these guys like Georgia sloughs ear who did the vanishing who made his own movie. And then ole Ola born doll who did Nightwatch as well. You know, these these foreign directors are asked to remake their own films. And I just really preferred the original. What's dent Lon scars guard? I thought that Liam Niessen was miscast here because it's about the super nice like family guy. He's citizen of the year. And then he's pushed to you know, to his breaking point to avenge, a family member's death, and to me Liam Neeson Yardley expect him to kill everybody in the room. So that transformation? I just didn't buy. Yeah. Absolutely. I initially I was in for the first half an hour forty five minutes, but then slowly the film started to take like make too many jokes at other things other expenses. And I felt the humor was off the offbeat just didn't feel harass. Putting putting the original has this dark like pitch black sense of humor. And you, and you sense it just because anytime anybody dies in the movie, there's like title card comes up with their name and their religious affiliation. Everything and it is it's kind of like this tongue in cheek. And and it's and it's funny. But here the humor just didn't translate particularly. Some of the ebonic stuff. What do you think of that stuff? Yeah. Yeah. That was my problem. You know, and we got we would be remiss not to mention Liam Neeson's recent comments in these interviews that he's given about how when he was younger and his friend was raped. She told him that it was a black guy. And he asked what color the gentleman was. She said it was a black guy. And then he went looking to hurt a black guy. Whether it was the guy who did it or not it didn't matter to them late on the interview, he said, it was teaching himself to realize how deep into the whole he could go and never wanted to go back there again. But you look at this combined with the black character in this movie, the eskimo, and you're just like what the one black character in this movie is a guy who speaks the, you know, they make fun of his speech patterns calling the bonnet that he has no code. He has no respect or courtesy. And that he's willing to betray anybody. And he's from the hood. I like it was so tone deaf that I was shocked that there was happening. It just wasn't necessary. There are couple of things in this film that just felt unnecessary. Like, the cancelling of Laura Dern, kind of disappears after the first act, the most appropriate frigging instance, I've ever seen because is out in the cold there. There's actually a pair of gay characters in this movie out. You'll never you'll never guess who they are. But it's like it's such a random moment. Like, I guess it's nice to see you know, that not all henchmen are great and heterosexual at the same time. Like, what was the point of this little insert? You know, what did you think of the actual action because people are going to they're going to buy their ticket because they wanna see Liam these and kill a bunch of guys. So I think of the action and that kind of stuff I certainly was onboard with someone with a lot of the action with him physically beating people up and then killing them in the running gag of throwing them into the gorge in the water wrapped in chicken wire. I enjoyed that of it all, but then eventually just became like, you got confused about who's who's the protagonist in this film because eventually it starts out Liam Neeson. But then eventually it becomes the navy. Guy was in the drug dealer there white bowl. I think his name is. And he he he's now the person that you're supposed to be following. So the action is good. But at it's unearned as the film goes along. That's my issue with it overall in that way. Right. I think the the the original Turkish like criminal, and then the Serbian mafia, and like, so so then element always sort of existed that that this guy is sort of pitting, you know, one group against the other and taking advantage of it. But yeah, it leads to this big climactic shootout at the end, and to me, it was totally unsatisfying because the person who, you know, lean is trying to get revenge on tire movie. He he's not ultimately the one who dispatches. There's no it isn't. And it's it's because the the main guy that's Trevor Viking Calcutta. That's Tom Bateman the actor playing the main villain. He kills white ball, son. And so white ball now has this desire to kill him. And where Niessen son had been killed. I in innocent son had been. Killed at least white bull son is a drug runner. He didn't get the chance to kill the main villain. So to me the swerve wasn't earned. It wasn't worth it. And in the end it self felt unsatisfactory to me. It bothered me a lot. Yeah. Satisfying rather than there was a lot of missed opportunities. I think in this film. It did start out strong. And it does have an interesting premise, and it is a little bit different than than what we've seen of Liam Niessen in the past. But like even the cops, you know, there's the subset EMMY Rossum and John donne who by the way, I thought it was d- Norse frilly verse twenty minutes of the movie. Jesse? And the cops really don't have any role to play in this at the end. They don't solve anything. Don't stop anything. They're kinda just there. This movie is two hours long probably could have been cut by twenty minutes, really easily and the villain. I didn't like Tom Bateman. It was like such a weird kind of caricature of a villain. Some of the this guy would be a drug dealer in charge of people. They'd laugh this guy out of the out of the room, and he came in they getting up in people's faces and to think a relationship with the wife was really weird and his wife, the white is native American, and yet he does I think that he doesn't like that never factors into the situation as the film goes along even though his main villa or competition is a native American. They were business partners business partners. Right. And then there's everything with the sun, not not just Liam Neeson. But you know, who is only in the movie for several minutes of the inciting incident if you will be Viking Sun. I kinda like the stuff with Liam Easson. And the boy has some funny lines particularly with dumping lumber dozy from from entourage. And Ray Donovan, but altogether. It's just like this souffle that just tastes sour. Yeah. Yeah. And I went in wanting to enjoy this thing. I'd heard great reviews. I'm a massively Liam Neeson phantoms of the moves. He's been doing. So I wanted to go in and see another like man type revenge movie, you know, but at some point you have to be like, well, there's no character development here. And I know I get it. It's a revenge film. You're not supposed to look for too much. But in two thousand nineteen why cast Laura Dern, if you're just going to ever MOU, you give her nothing to do. And she supposedly so in love with this man and is standing by him as he wins citizen of the year. But they lose their son. And all of a sudden because he doesn't talk to her a couple times coming home. She leaves barely any grieving barely an agreement between the parents, he's ready to kill himself immediately. I didn't either put a gun in his mouth. Yeah. Yeah. Like blaming himself. And then you know, there's this young actor. I like I like Gus however is his name. He was in goat. Which should I'll see he's like the guy John that was like so stupid. There was too much. It almost felt like, you know, like the scene in the Halloween reboot where they're talking about the sandwiches. The Vietnamese it seemed like there was. It seemed like it was like too much of that multiple scenes like that. And it's all in attempt to give this movie a little bit of humorous edge. But it didn't it didn't work. I think the tongue was so deep into the cheek that you bet it off. That's what it felt like to me this movie was so deep in that eventually just bid it off without knowing and you know, an hour almost over to Jefferson was like if I go home. What do I lose here? So it was just frustrating. How it could have been great. And I think there's probably a lot of people who will in who might enjoy this film. But I just wanted to more character development, especially when you're dealing with the native American drug, there's they're randomly smoking and getting high and they make a reservation joke. I just was so confused. You don't have the characters which I I don't think John wick is a particularly developed character. But that's a developed world. Yes. Fleshed out world and the action scenes make up for the fact that you know, you don't have a lot of character development. There's nothing like that. Here Hans Petter Mon is not an action director. I think he's actually a really thoughtful dramatic director. But the some of this stuff is just outside of his. Yeah. His toolbox. This is reminiscent with John. Woo tries to do the American version of his Asian films. Don't really transfer over most of the time. This feels the same way here. It's a can't recommend from the Miami me to what your score I wanted to ten. What do you wanna give it ten? I mean, it's it's it is strangely. Watchable? I'd give it like a five probably gonna find. I give it a little higher like a six six and a half something like that. Because enough of it interested me to the first forty five minutes to an hour. And then I just completely got. And it's a two hour in a horrible horrible move or something like that? It's just yeah. It's it's a swing intimate. It's more the potential fallible helpful there, you go. There you go go see his original one the two thousand fourteen Norwegian throw find it's called in order of disappearance. Maybe that's the one you'll enjoy more than coal pursuit.

2020 Oscar Predictions! - The Nerd Soup Podcast!

"Hello everybody and welcome back to another episode of Youtube Lambeau. Oliver joined today by Aaron. That hurts monkey. And this is a very special edition of the nursery podcast. We are doing an Oscars preview for the Twenty Twenty Academy Kademi Awards. Wow I think this is the third or fourth time we've done this. The Oscars is it used to be Christmas. where I'm like this again? Now in my life it's become the Oscars it's like like I feel like we just watch this and I just complain. I just got my heartbroken. Our back at it. Yeah it's it's it's Oscar season. It's Oscar season. It's a long season. I think that's what it is. Yes it feels way longer than it actually is but great year movies. We said that are on our top ten list. So it's a show where I don't think I'm going to be disappointed by a lot of the winners. I know it's one of those things I mean. I do have a strong favor for documentary short. But yeah who doesn't It's one of these things where I have my own opinion on who I think should should win. But then there's kind of the this person probably is going to win or this film so it's kind of like politics I guess. Yeah just. Don't take the loss that seriously. Obviously you know support. Whoever wins the lesson all right before we get started on the the list of nominations? We will tell you guys that you could listen to this podcast. asinine tuned spotify and soundcloud at the new podcast. And send us your questions for you edgy. Mail DOT COM nerd on twitter nurturing monkey on twitter and you can follow the rest us. But they're not here so doll them. Yeah they didn't put the work in. Yeah data deserve to get followers if they come and if they do good they get like funny podcast ask follows you tag them and something right right. They're not in the video but they get the little tag that's what we let them with their be. All right we'll start here with the best actor in a a leading role nominee always Stiff competition in this category. And I think this year it's just as competitive as any other year the event Tonio Band and era for painting glory. We have Leonardo Dicaprio for once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story Joaquin Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. So Erin is is there a clear favourite could be. Yeah Walking Phoenix. He's become he's cleaning up lately. Won The BAFTA Golden Globe. It's like I said before. I think Adam drivers should win but walking Phoenix is great in the joker to and I think pretty much. I don't WanNa Fail Loch but pretty close to it at this point. I think it's betting odds or minus two twenty five hundred so it looks like he'll be waiting for this role. Well it's funny because every year it seems like one of the categories just kind of flips. And if I'm looking at anybody on this list that I think could take it from Joakim it would be Antonio Bent Aris because he's got the name and it's also his first time the academy loves that they love the older actor coming in but I think walking is the favourite. And I'm with you. I think Adam driver gave my favorite the performance of the year but Joakim is right there. They're kind of neck and neck. So it's it's one of those. Hey you throw your hands up. Whoever wins it? Jonathan Pryce just commend him for his performance in the two popes he he looks like Pope Francis and he did a good job with the accent in to go opposite. Anthony Hopkins is not an easy task. No it's not so best supporting anything Hopkins's in that too so you got some legends and you've got some up and comers so it's and Leo you know Leo's kind of I think we take them for granted Leo. I thought when I first saw once upon a time in Hollywood he would be right up there but that was before the joker before marriage stories so and before the two popes so I think it's walking Phoenix of anybody as a shots making can upset and defy. The odds would be Adam driver all. Let's go to the next category. We have performance by an actor in supporting role. We have Tom Hanks for a beautiful beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two. Popes Alpa Chino in the Irishman. Joe Patchy in the Irishman and Brad Pitt once upon a time. Hollywood another stat category. This may be. Yeah I mean you look at all the names people making jokes. It's like the ninety six Academy Awards. this is like this is Hollywood. You turn on the Oscars and you see these five. Yeah I I can identify them right away. You've seen their movies but for me. I think the stand. That would be Brad Pitt in terms of WHO's going to win who should win Yeah I might lean ah Peschiera Pacino but I think Brad Pitt again. You see the trends from the award season so far. It's Brad Pitt. It's lock I think which I don't yeah I don't like which I'm not saying I don't like Brad Pitt? But I don't like how that they're kind of lockstep the award show. Yeah and how like we can base it off it and pretty much. We have have a really good idea. I'd rather it be. You Know Brad Pitt has also met some heavy favourite put man Peci near Schmidt. He's right there too and it's kind of like you know because all these performances I mean can you really put one that far ahead of the other no minus twenty four hundred. That's a heavy heavy favourite so I would assume assume that Brad Pitt put in a performance. That's three times as good as the others. which is not the case? Yeah I think it's a combination of at the end of the day. It's humans rewarding other humans. So it's it's it's monkey see monkey do. What are the trends? Where's all the momentum going? Yeah look at that. Apparently not you you stand apart. No you're the one guy with his arms grossly. I don't see that not doing on that. I see it but I'm not doing it but it was I would I would like to see him when I think this is more so than best actor. This is where one of the other guys could win it. Where Brad Pitt's favorite? But if they gave it with the pantry sometimes the voters it just you know how they were feeling that day. It's like I feel like a special day. Yeah not everybody has a thing ever wake up in the morning the day mostly six days out of the week. It's only seven days. You congrats are. Let's go to the next category. We have performance by an actress in a leading role. Cynthia revolt and Harriet. Scarlett Johansson Hanson marriage story. Sure Sharon in little women. Charlene's the ronin bombshell and Renee Zellweger and Judy. Now another case of it looks like it's trending towards one person right Renee Zellweger for Judy. Yeah when I was thinking in my head is going through the nominees. In which category was there just the the standout not not the stand up but it almost like the default because I don't think any of these performances maybe Ronin for little women but none of them really stand out to me I think Scarlett Johansson's did for me but I think think other Renee Zellweger has lost award yet this season or any of them that are the telltale signs of were that could you. You can use the predicts Oscar winners so bath is Golden Globes Critics choice SAG like. I think it's just been across boy so I just had to say IT I. I don't know how Shirley's thrown is nominated. This year for bombshell. Is that just me. I didn't feel like the movie. Was that critically claimed. I didn't love it. I mean I thought it was an okay movie but she just looked like Megan. Kelly takes town. I guess has that was a makeup. Nah that was just heard morphing. Yeah I can do it. I don't usually get in the role all but yeah Oscar. I don't know that feels like a two thousand eighteen nomination you know. That's like a year with for vice advice. Got Nominated Zellwegger Liga. Probably another lock. But what are you GonNa do watch and then be disappointed art. Let's go to the Nike disappointed. Expecting right exactly Performance by an actress in a supporting role all we have Kathy Bates and Richard Jewel. Laura dern and marriage story Scarlett Johansson Joe Rabbit Florence Pugh and little women and Margot Robbie bombshell once again Margot Robbie. She was good but I mean there are so many other performances that were snubbed. Maybe not even in supporting. But all right so Laura dern yeah she's Next David has mob. She second on the list which I would go so I mean in Florence. PUGH was probably I think she gave a better. Performance will not a better performance but I think she was more intricate to the movie. That's what I always look at. It's weird it was like the situation now last year or two favourite with Amy Amy Adams Emma stone and Rachel Vice I felt like their roles could be seen as like pseudo leads because there was such an integral part of that movie so I thought they wanna either one of them should have one but I kind of feel the foreign pugh. Laura dern has a few fantastic season. He's in marriage story. The whole goal movie is pretty much just acting at its best. When all three of those Ga with all those actors Scarlett Johansson? WHO's GonNa Joe Rabbit I don't know if she I think she might deserve the nomination. I really liked her in that role. Every woman in parasites should be on. This will decide who who else gets on. Well no Laura dern at the Bates it's like when The Pistons had the floor all stars. Make the all sort and they put them out there with Lebron That's like Laura dern and then the parasite women you know Laura dern earns Lebron but where where are they caveats once again. Richard Jewell Clint Eastwood since one is he making directing people to Oscars. Yeah especially to its outlet scrawl Johannesen. It's not not too often. You see someone get two nominations for two different roles in two different categories and especially I mean that role like I said fine but this is supposed to be. It's like putting Eli Manning the hall of fame and I'm a giants fan and it's it's like everybody gets in now. It's you know it needs to be. The Best of the best parasite was so critically acclaimed. That's what's so dumbfounded to me is that it was so so obviously the number one movie for so many people and there's no acting nominations. What are you doing in a movie? You're acting it right. Best movie clear favourite it so they tell me now known nominations. So yeah I I'd go Laura Dern as going to win and probably should to all right let's go to mason best animated feature films of the year nominees out to train your dragon the hidden world. I lost my body. Klaus missing link and Toy story for angles list of all the creators I saw toy story story for. And that's it. That's it the toy story for I class though is would That's the buzz. was you know what it is. Well I I blame on Hollywood for not getting us into press screenings because we can't I mean we're not going to kiss movies you know. I saw frozen two. I was good frozen to snuggle gave it the cultural this. Is You know the odds here. Toy story minus one fifty class plus one twenty five. That's the battle battle right there. I hear great things about Klaus. Yeah the thing is too. It's like the animated movies. It's another thing they don't get the buzz. Like an animated movie could be just as good has the Irishman. Yes they only they talked about as like oh ninety percent for anatomy kids movie. It's a subcamp ninety percent for a movie. This people will go see it. Yeah this this is definitely a category that should be abolished. I don't think I mean obviously I haven't seen the other four but toy story four wasn't good enough to get nominated for best pitcher but toy story. Three was twenty ten. I think the categories should be abolished. I really do because that. That's the case spirited away when it won for best animated features. The first foreign film to do that people were saying hey was an nominated for best pitcher I mean but if you do none of these movies will get nominated for best pitcher now as they shouldn't I mean most movies. Don't that's the thing we're we're looking at animated made films it's like Oh we only get so many of the year it's like yeah on average most of the market Oscar movies. Because if you're only how many movies do we get for kids a year like ten to fifteen gene and compare that to three hundred dramas. So I guess you're highlighting animated films but then make the best comedy category Take the best superhero film. Category Anti Animation. That's weird considering. I'M NOT ANTI animation. This this is anti animation Let's go the best achievement in cinematography. We have Rodrigo Prieto for the Irishman Lauren. Shir for the joker. We have Jaren Blackie for the lighthouse. Roger Deakins for nineteen seventeen and Robert Richardson for once upon a time in Hollywood I mean I think everyone at the scene. Nineteen seventeen and Roger. Deakins has name recognition. I think he's probably the clear. Stand out here although I will change for good old Roger. Yeah ooh forty nine. Is this first one. That's crazy even given even it to Roger Yeah I think but I think what was Jaren. blache key for the lighthouse. Yes that might be right up there for me. In terms was of just achievement in cinematography movie shot so well and the way the way they were able to use the aspect ratios and the black and white in kind of the shadows within the film was brilliant and added so much to the movie but nineteen seventeen. That's just a an experience. And most of that is due to some of its San obviously say Mendez Directing but Roger Deacons. Put something that film that I don't think many people could. It would be nice to see bless you get it for the lighthouse. Because it's a it's a film that was both on both of our top tens but it has been shut out for most categories Robert Richardson again. Again it's you've got three legends here with the Irishman nineteen seventeen and once upon a time so and Lawrence. I was surprised. I didn't even realize joker was nominated for Best Cinematography. That's weird I I yeah I guess the cinematography it was good. Yeah the camera. The camera work was good. I mean I love that shot of him when he begins dancing in the bathroom. And it's really kind of unravels. His arms that's a great still image. I guess SOC OPPORTU I think a lot of people when they think Mataya they think of like the one perfect shot type. Yeah where it's sometimes like Roma Wick. That camerawork was absolutely brilliant last year and camera work. Nineteen seventeen and in joker maybe some of those subtle movements way. They wrapped the camera rounds while he's dancing and he's moving and some of the angles. They got out there kind of enhanced the film See I think lighthouse was the best of both worlds in terms of the camera work. And how the movie actually looked. Yeah and how it actually impacted the overall story. I mean a nineteen seventeen is a lot of that as well in the lighting and that one scene in the abandoned down was absolutely incredible title and I always love this category. So yeah whoever gets it. I'm just going to be happy for them for the Rob Lowe and NFL hat to the game cinematography. They're all my children. I'm archie in the stands. Yeah I'd say we could do costume design achievement in costume design nominees. The Irishman Joe. Rabbit Joker little women. I'm in once upon a time in Hollywood and the names of the Irishman. We Have Sandy Powell and Christopher Peterson we have maze see Reuben for Joe Rabbit Mark Bridges for Joker Jacqueline Duran the end for little women and Ariane Phillips once upon a time in Hollywood this is also when people always tell me that they want to get involved with film. It's like what do you WanNa do. Direct it's okay. What are you GonNa do when you realize you can't do that? There's so many jobs and I think this is one of the cooler ones. Probably the least like Nobel rated yet but like from a general audience. I don't think anyone period it's very bad. Yes but if it's done well it's like oh it's a period piece such as what they wear. I really like the attention attention to detail and look how much goes into it. I- How much that brings to the movie right. A great way to appreciate that would be to watch the different little women's going back and watching changes the aesthetic of all those different movies and a lot of the Times. It does come down to Qasim. I love the costume design and little women because it wasn't just the what they were wearing when they would go out it was you. You know what they were wearing to bed and at home their home lives now. They really Tom in Hollywood too. Yeah keep talking about capturing an error. Yeah that's sick fits. Yeah that's the the movie where they had not only to nineteen sixty nine We're we're dolemite yeah at out of Inigo Joker over Dole. That's offensive offensive. Gioja rabbits who I mean. It's another period piece. I feel like those. Get the most play it's like. Oh Wow they made all close yeah. There was another one dolemite was one and then there was another snub that people were talking about. I can't remember what it is off the top of my head but yet joker being on. Here's weird we I think what a woman who I think. They're slight favorite over Joe Joe Rabbit so okay. Columbia close little Let's move on here to achievement in directing nominees we have Martin Scorsese for the Irishman. We have taught Phillips for joker. We have Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bong Jun Ho for parasite argue the favorite. Don't if it's Sam and is just unplugged my mic for favourite. Oh Yeah Yeah Fuck but boggy is not too far off plus by as he's I mean. Please do this do one right thing. I think he is going to win. I think he is going to win. Yeah I think it's one of those where the Oscars it's they're they're not all the favorites aren't going to go all the big favorite song All Win and I think if anyone has a chance to have the quote unquote upset sponsoring how it's a quote unquote upset. Because I don't think for most film fans this would be an upset. That's the thing why can't we. It's like this the Iowa caucuses. Can't we vote on this. Like American idol. You know just let us stupid game would win now film twitter. You have to your selected from a committee that's designed by me Teddy. Wouldn't get now. Okay good now now. Now Teddy's Nashes this. I don't think I mean you'd have to take the test we'll see please I hoban June gets more my heart. Yeah I think he should and I think you will. I mean San Mendez. A great jobs not saying he's like a scrubber doesn't deserve it but I think it would be Tinos ever gotten on one. Yeah he's a horse as he's only got one that's crazy to think about Between the two of them only one only one But off between Scorsese Phillips in terms of you know only one realize like once once once once upon a time in Hollywood came out Tarantino's He had no matter what and look how things play throughout the year. Yeah I thought the same thing with with Scorsese I thought I was really has nothing. No momentum wasn't the hell happened happened I have no idea. It's weird. How that happens right came out? People either loved it or people like up to long and kind of became a medium and then next thing you know it's just it's gone no momentum what's ten nominations and people are saying it's not GonNa win anything. No that's crazy. 'cause there's no way it's getting a best pitcher now I don't think so. Yeah I would say who do I think is going to win. I would say I'm going to go boundary. Yeah meter her because I want him to win and I want the upset if Sam Mendez wins. What a boring choice I mean I like nineteen seventeen but and Todd Phillips once again? What the hell aren't next? Category category is achievement in film editing. Nominees we have Ford v Ferrari Michael mccusker and Andrew Buckland. We have the Irishman for Thelma. shoemaker Joe Rabbit. Tom Eagles Joker Jeff Roth and parasite Yang Jin moat talk about very very unappreciated aspect of film. It's the editing. Yeah I mean Thelma. shoemakers the genius behind the edits of basically his movies Scorsese. He's got that great quote. She's like how do you edit such a violent movies and she's like they don't the violence isn't there till I get my hands on one of those like this wasn't just one of the categories that they were talking about not putting during the commercials. Oh yeah this would have been. This is a slap in the face. Probably I mean cinematographer and editor those are just assed extensions of the director. Those are your. That's like the brain of the of the movie So those are the three most important people and Avi writer but that's almost interchangeable changeable now with the director but yeah I mean. Editing is so important watched how star wars was saved. Edit a bad at it you can have a masterpiece and a bad at it will make that look like Batman v Batman and Robin and you can have a piece of shit a good at it will make it watchable. Were you gonNA say Batman Versus Superman but then you realize by saying that that Ben inverstment was a masterpiece piece until someone edited it. No okay for me. I think it has to be the Irishman. And it's not it's it's gotta be. It's third though who's other favorite joe favorite is parasite than Ford verse. Ferrari and then the Irishman A parasites got some good editing too. Yeah there's a couple of Chris Yeah To to our ten movie and there is some like cool edits within the film to But the Irishman I mean they made three and a half movie fly by. Yeah and the way they're able to turn. Ernest goes to different periods. In time and one that altogether I thought it was fantast about joker though That's the least favorite plus thirty twenty thousand five hundred once again and game. That should be on here for editing. I'm pretty sure and game was like they claim that they're director's cut is like minutes off from the the the cotton they released in theaters. That's impressive terms of Ford Variety. Too I mean I was actually yes it. Oh yeah four berths were. I loved it all together did we did I think if anything the sound design or Yeah with sound. It should definitely win film film editing. Yeah I think I deserve to be up there. But the Irishman. I don't know I think that should win but I wonder if she has one in the past I'm sure she has. Es She's had to have one often probably the departed assume the only factor to goodfellas. You know that's right. Yeah I think I should win and I think it will. I think it might get the I guess the minor upset According to the odds are let's move onto the next category here. We have best international feature film of the year nominees. We have Corpus Christi directed by John Comas. Honey land directed by Lebow Stephan of and Tamara Code Koska Les Miserables directed by Latch. Lee Ovum saying that right painting. Glory directed by Pedro Almodovar and parasite directed by boundary Parasite parasite yes should and will It's one of those. I think it's becoming more common now where we saw of Roma last this year. Where foreign international films are getting best? Pitcher NAM's so the gun of getting both so I. I think that tells you all you need to know right there. It's the only international failed to get a best picture nomination. It's probably GonNa win the SA- category. Yeah and I guess. Pain and glory also had the nomination for acting and that's the other international film I've seen on this list honey. Land is obviously the one that you keep hearing about and will not like to see Ole Miss. It's the it's lane is right right. I'm assuming that there's keep putting out the same movie role like That's that's good was nominated but I'm sure it's yes worthy to be nominated painting glory. I mean I'm not sure if Almodovar has won an Oscar before no actually no. He's won on a couple of of I think in two thousand two. He won for best pitcher best international pitcher. So yeah parasites the clear favourite because if it doesn't get best pitcher this is going to be almost like a consolation insulation award which is Kinda stupid as well but whatever yeah you always feared to like they're going to are. They got into international film so will vote for something else for best pitcher another category that I think should be abolished I think the Oscars I mean it's it's become very American wardell. Yeah but if you don't have this category no one there. None of these films maybe except for parasite would even be mentioned at an Oscars right so shames that too though you just want a massive overhaul ha you why not. People don't like change now they don't all let's go for achievement achievement makeup and hairstyling nominees. We have bombshell joker. Judy Muller recent Mr Seveval in nineteen seventeen and a lot of names. I won't get to all of them anymore. I mean Another underrated category. But listen is the only one I haven't seen but I feel like it's got a good shot to win. The makeup looked. Good Judy's makeup as well. Yeah I think Bombshell is probably its favorite right now and like I said that's not makeup so I shall we. That's the bombshell cellmate a joke and joker as best makeup. which is the white hit the white putting it on his tongue but that you know that was a unique kind of twist on the classical joker and I thought it was nice? I was always a fan of the makeup when those first pictures came out I always make fun of the people that like. That's not his final form. I think Bob Show. It's the favorite. I think it will win and get should there was Did look like Megan Kelly. And there's so much more goes into that than just the shirl Easter on but that was the the The one when he saw the trailer like well. That's pretty neat. Yeah that one yeah. It was almost a bit of the Uncanny Valley. That's what that's how you win the award if you watch the trailing. Oh Wow that's neat. You deserve a win. Yeah neat is better than great little woman. Alexandra dispe Lot Alexandra spot marriage story. Randy Newman nineteen seventeen. Thomas Newman now relation Asian and star wars the Roger Skywalker John Williams. Wow This is another category where they just they just throw all the legends in there and say pick one another hat besides joker I hope she wins. Actually I think she will win. Yeah she's a favourite. She won Golden Globes and. I think that she's won a few other big. I don't think she's as clear favourite as some of the other other Favorites out there but I think she has a very good shot of winning. And I'm kind of rooting for I kinda like that. Score very creepy kind of sets the tone of the film and I think it's the most recognizable out of all them once the popularity of the film but also like nineteen seventeen while watching the film. I the score was great in an added a lot to. I can't hunt right now. No right so it's be situation like that where John Williams being nominated did. You can't find one of these up and coming composers or somebody may be a bit more deserving. I mean the score is great but it's been the same that's like nominating an album that gets released released every ten years like les MIS basically but the same thing it's he's not adding much new music that score and maybe it's just that good right and there's a hell of a score like they keep making star wars. We're GONNA keep nominating so all right. Let's move on to the final category. It's the biggest one of the year. It's always the the biggest category of best motion picture of ear. We afford versus Ferrari the Irishman Gioja Rabbit joker little women marriage story nineteen seventeen. Once upon a time in Hollywood. We would end parasite now. What's the favorite? It's nineteen seventeen as it is up boy parasites not far behind. I'll never forget that spotlight. One Best Pitcher. What's the Hollywood to? I don't think it's plus one hundred. We're looking for a shocker. I could see that maybe sneaking in there somehow I would not be surprised with the war movie or the movie about Hollywood. It's like it's close. It's plus three hundred. I think that it has. It has a very good shot but I mean yeah I think it's nineteen seventeen parasite would be such such a great win for just recognizing international films and the impact that they have on American audiences and creators just to give that recognition that international recognition to be great for the academy. I think it would set a new precedent moving forward where yeah the clear best movie of the year. We are going to award it. We're not going to go with a safe pick. WE'RE NOT GONNA go with the political pick. We're just GONNA go with the best. And that means they're going to go with nineteen seventy but like I said. There's a lot of movies on this list. Where if the Irishman pulled it out it's not I won't be mad if little women pulled it out marriage story? I think out of all the years that we've been doing INNIS. This is the most that I've been happy with so many nominations for best pitcher her. I hate it to four Verse Harari. It's plus twenty thousand. There's no I absolutely zero point. Zero shot that it's going to win. Well that's literally just an honor to be nominated but but I do wish it was more. I don't know how you change that because you unless the idol minded. Yeah but if the Oscars go I I guess so. No one knows who. WHO's the it's like? We don't know exactly what's going to happen. We have a good idea where we can go down to two or three choices for that space between performances. There shouldn't be a favorite like joker and marriage story Joakim in Adam driver they're very close for performances. Write for movies. I don't think that's the case where you can have. Marriage urge story is light years ahead of the joker in terms of quality of film but the performances very close. And I think that's the also the case investiture where I don't mind leaning towards one movie so heavily but it's just leaning towards the wrong race. I think nineteen seventeen parasite and once upon a time in Hollywood with the punchers chance. That's all you can really exploit right. You made a big stage. I think also Douglas. Yeah I thought nine hundred seventeen was abetter film than parasite so I think once upon a time in Hollywood is better than Baldwin was up to me. I think the Irish Dan your number two so it was up to like my pick would be the Irishman but I think I think we'll go to Paris Yeah I'm GonNa Pack Site Fuck L. E. Michael. I'm gonNA say nineteen seventeen. Actually you know what really going out on a limb there. No I'M GONNA do. I don't WanNa do Shannon Sharpe. Picking the forty niners even though he loves mahomes. I'll l. go with parasite only because of with best pitcher the academy the way they did. They tried to correct themselves. They think that they're slip. But they're not. It's like the year moonlight the best pitcher. We're GONNA give every other award to every other movie but will give you best pitcher here. You Go. And the official academy. Twitter tweeted heeded their Oscar predictions. They predicted prior site winning picture. That's like Roger Goodell out and I think the chiefs are going to win Out This thirty one twenty five did you know that Roger. So that was odd Will ensure the person who runs the academy twitter is like some. It's probably the teddy real real quick here some of these pets here. They have on this website. we'll Brad Pitt. Hug Jennifer Aniston on Cameroonian skirts. Plus five hundred yes really yeah. Oh Wow I wouldn't take that. Well Brad Pitt. Bring a date to the Oscars plus one seventies. Yes so no. Because he wants Anderson Hook. Yeah yeah he's on these on taking a date. Why are they so brad oral? It'd be like Like Toby Maguire. You know they took toby. What will be mentioned first in the opening monologue Gillian? Wildfires Climate Change Donald Trump Iran or Iraq. Ricky Gervais SGRECCIA Thornburgh Puerto Rico Harvey Weinstein or Chad. Hanks Chat I love that. All those are matching as somebody can vote. There's not going to be an opening monologue. I think someone comes out and like a little. They're the host though right So Chad Hanks while Puerto Rico nobody mentions Puerto Rico Puerto Rico literally blown off the face of the earth in the news news is going to be like hang this yet. Thanks and trump on twitter together following each other That's all that really not much props. What's something that will happen? That will That's a trend. Yes explode I want that to happen. I'm rooting for that. Probably Joker winning best pitcher of joker wins. I think the film twitter will will explode that. Yeah all that won't happen. Yeah tabby awesome go just sheer fact of seeing and everybody go crazy no one would be better would be for us. Because Joker winning best pitcher that would be so chaotic and everybody would chime in but for film twitter for the center files. Todd Todd Phillips winning best director destroy filled twitter. It would burn it to the garage. I'm rooting for it. I am ruling. Yeah that's the one I wanted to imagine that we will. You're talking best director that I hope he wins for that reason That'd be awesome. Yeah I could see Allen daughter. In pizza she does that at the Oscars a lot right. She's hosting she'll she'll wiggle her way always does allen funds away to button. Yeah there is a few pies. She is funny. Why can't we just have ellen hosted? I don't know I don't like the no host me to say that right now. I don't care how I want the show to feel chaotic. I don't want it to move fast. I WANNA feel like I've been watching it for seven hours l.. India Amy Poehler Tina Fey. That's Combo clean face back. Yeah yeah the why are they doing this. Who Billy Crystal Billy every year for every year then see? Why can't Ellen? Just be the Billy Crystal Era MHM Remember when Seth McFarland at Near. He did do that's like an unforgotten. Oscars Noah forgotten. Osgood Chris Rock Kevin Hi oh no. He didn't Kevin Harlan James Franklin Anne. Hathaway did all right everybody. That's the nerd soup podcast for today.

Whatever you want maybe wind so you got your little women. They're tiny also nine hundred seventeen. It was a long time ago Ford versus Ferrari you shut up pattering Joker once upon a time in Hollywood parasite the Irishman Zinni. Has Anyone seen the Irishman? Have you was a boring no? It's not it's not long is long. I? I'll be honest with the only thing I didn't like about. The Irishman is that they tried to age. You know everyone down and that took away all the acting like that. You see in the wrinkles. Yes actually took me when when it was in the younger version. I was not in the story when it went to the older version. I was all in. I believe it was really weird because I I watched it once and then I went back and said why did I get taken out at these points and it was always when we went doing they went to a digital version and that took it away. It just wasn't you didn't you didn't see the nuances of the actors. And what they do. And that's the thing about a great actor is that the little nuances the little pieces of the mouth Mouth Rolls or the the twentieth of the you know in the is or is not the word it's not all those little mannerisms that make them real and that wasn't there. It was as if I was watching you know. Fake people so well micro expressions. You should get used to that because in the future. That's all we're going to have was probably know it's going to be like Beowulf. Terrible isn't it was expecter. Oh I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Continue After the Irishman was Gioja Rabbit. Love and marriage story right. What's your choices at what I'm GONNA do parasite to. I'm GonNa take parasite parasite even though I haven't seen it. I'm sure that it is quality because these people know what they're talking about I think any of the other ones are a slam dunk. No rabbit was so good though. I really wanted to win but I don't think it will think it's too too quirky. Yeah that's just my feeling. So Funny Hitler Hitler Okay. So best actor Adam driver which is skipped this. Everyone knows walking. GonNa win it. Antonio Banderas Leo DiCaprio Jonathan. Or will gain vein. Honestly think it'll be walking and I think he should anyone else wanted. I would be okay with it either. One person writing what would it? Would you be okay with Antonio Banderas willing up here? That movies awesome. Oh really okay. Well Hey there you just thought it ask okay. What's going to happen? But that's actress. Scarlett Skardu from Jodi. Yes from from one of the few. He's actually has to okay supporting right. Yes okay so I'm I apologize. Say Oars Ronin from little women from little women. Say Right Sir Sir Sir Sir Shah I'm GonNa beat your I. I'm sorry I deserve an ass feeding she will.

I haven't seen I just saw him last night. Okay Okay Okay. As far as movies go. It's okay. It's okay she's fine. Areso Gra. Harriet which we saw her in one of our other films bedtime Roy also on shows on The outsiders really good. Yeah she's was that's got Jason Bateman and directs like the first two episodes You Stephen King County. I Love Stephen King yet. Yeah you and I are going home tonight. Espn sorry I about Renee Zellweger for Judy. She Great Right. She sounds amazing. I'm not a big Fan of hers. And she's not one of my favorite. She is amazing. Isn't it one of my favorites either? But I've seen just the trailers and she's right same here really amazing. My Pick C. Is so good in this. It's just it's I mean like I said Yeah for bridget. Did you win for fringe and Jones Jones maker? She didn't get it for Texas chainsaw massacre we need you know. She is so good and this is my favorite one. Honestly it's banked you're looking at her at. Judy Garland. Yeah I think she she's my. I saw her based on trail. I didn't care as much for the story but I did think that she was amazing. I mean I give it a seven out of ten. But you know it's just you know her. Her portrayal is phenomenal. I saw her at the Ballantyne Theater. For the premiere of leatherhead so one for call the Carolina Panthers were there and there was a lot of knocking over glasses and shattering of drinks And then there was a sad george clooney sitting at the bar by himself because leather heads was terrible terrible. I'm sorry George was really really bad because the Stephen Root Again. Yeah you did. Because he was in it. Yeah Yeah big of his. You know what's next what's next I can. Even we're GonNa talk about ever seen newsradio. Did you ever try out for Newsradio I did not? I didn't even watch a stephen rooted in it. I would have lost. It also auditioned forget out. Wish is that close to speak up for that part of my stapler but there was there was another movie besides letterheads is he in. Talladega nights don't know can't can maybe not okay. Anyway next. Category Lit- Little Tunnel through the best writers directors. Martin Scorsese for the Irishman. Get Long joon-ho for say Beautiful Quentin Tarantino once upon a time net. Nineteen seventeen got Phillips. Has Good in it. I don't think they should deserve Mendez. Gets their nineteen seventy nine hundred seventeen? That's right the first time he's been nominated as since American beauty and I'm sad about American beauty loved American beauty like now you know now. But then allow really mad at Kevin Spacey. Stop killing people. Kevin Spacey Pretty Cool. That like three people that are accusing him of moral. No that are accusing him of sexual harassment. Three of them have died really. Wow really close together. And he put out a really creepy holiday video. That said. Watch your bag. Wow Oh my God. I can't believe I don't watch E T I don't eat. Are you getting this on the dark web? Maybe pick for nineteen seventeen whereas getting off of that scary topic I want to. I think. That's the winner. I you know I think I think His he did a great job in it. It's the cinematography at the is phenomenal in it From that standpoint tents movie to watch yeah comes up for that one. Pm OUT IF I want to buy now it's not film I would actually ever go back and watch again. I think I will eventually but when it comes to. Hbo and I'm. I'm not so sure that I will. Just. I'm not sure that there's any disturbing no. It's not what you've seen it you've kind of Ghana's seen it and it's you know of course it's cool following camera you know in a sense at one. Take kind of thing. It's not a one tag. Everybody wants to say it's one tickets. Now there are lots of one takes. And the Ron Walks. And then they cut into the sand and place. Amazing the editing. And the right to I mean I think yeah otherwise thing but just doesn't it doesn't blow me away. I I think it's a good film and I think it's great. I think they're just better film. I think to make parasite just heddon toes above. I think about nineteen seventeen And I think from a director standpoint. I think it is but you can't give them best film best you know. You just can't do then give them best director to just hardly ever happens that way. So maybe maybe this'll be especially for foreign film. During the other categories left sporting people member pullman. Okay so we have Joe Patchy nourishment. Did you know he was a hairdresser? I did and he does all of his own hair. What's left of it? He does his own wigs. Al Pacino also for the Irish meant he was getting off Brad. Bit once bunch. I'm in Hollywood Mazer. Anthony Hopkins two popes. Didn't you Tom? Hanks Mr Rogers Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. What is this supporting role? Why is he not like the main role in the reporter is the main route that means I should it? I don't know any do that much. you should think this is. Brad Pitt's here. I think this is Brad pitch here. I think he's GonNa get Brad. Yeah and he does in this. I mean again. There's not much I'm not a big fan of once upon a time and in Hollywood. I think it's to me. It's kind of a rip off of a lot of things. I I thought the last fifteen minutes were really good. I've watched I mean you could have cut this down to thirty minutes and just cut out like a lot and then I'd have been just as abby But Brad Pitt I thought was great and I thought he just nailed it. I thought the acting was amazing. But this story to me is just been overdone. Overdone story pieces much is a character. I WANNA watch like supposedly. Quinton has a three hour director's cut and I want to watch that and see if that kids it life because sometimes when you start getting cut it back to to take tests forty five minutes out of it to get it down. And maybe that's what happened is the cut was just not you know a good cut to get it down to two fifteen. The last fifteen minutes were great. Yeah it seemed like it was like twelve hours. Wife was ready to walk out an hour and a half and she just kept saying there's nothing happening and and really truthfully it was great little study after study over a narrative right right but I enjoyed it. Why why are you making those faces raid? We've on his okay so Supporting actress Laura dern marriage story. I love her. She was good Scarlett. Johansson judge a rabbit. She was really good. Kathy Bates for Richard Jewel. Odd didn't see. I haven't seen that one. I want to no one's saying that. No no no actually. Clint Eastwood hasn't even seen it empty chair. He talked to you. My God Clinton. What are you doing all right? It was a good movie but yeah I think I just listened to a podcast with Clint Eastwood talking about it and it was. Kinda watch it now I want. I wanted to watch it before because I backing right out of college. I worked at a place that was right there with Olympic villages. So it was right where the bomb was so. I kind of be interesting to watch it and I followed the whole story but I didn't get a chance to see in the theater and I still haven't seen so okay Las Flores pugh for little women and Margot Robbie for bump show. Oh I haven't seen any of those Laura dern takes this one you think it's going to be Laura dern during deserves it I think so too I think it is. I think some of those situations where she has played an aggressive lawyer. I would. There's other people on there. I'd like to see you don't know how the gadget didn't think. Now I don't want I love me what it is. I love scarlets character. I do something she did enough in that character. That was like over take away. The shoes shot You know not little women to be honest with okay what's the next okay so screenplay original screenplay knives out really want to see that. Haven't seen BOB'S MARRIAGE STORY. One thousand nine hundred seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite I think the pick is going to be once upon a time in Hollywood and I think that's a mistake to give it to it but I think that's GonNa Happen to me. The best one was marriage story. I thought that was the most realistic. And if I was choosing that would be the one I would choose over all. They've just thought it was interesting analogy. And and something. That's kind of you know. Taking place in the world right now with lots of divorces and and you know separations from it so that was. That was my favorite marriage. Story is a Netflix original right. Yes so there's GonNa be some opinion of a push back against that Because they didn't have a theatrical. Yeah and because I think The old traditional You Know Hollywood. They're trying to. They're not happy with if they feel threatened and so I think there might be some pushback against that but but no bombeck I'm sorry keep asking. Has he won because if he hasn't it might be his time. He's done some really good. Oh yeah he's he's awesome. Yeah he's awesome but I just. I know that there are people. Feel a certain kind of way about Netflix streaming tradition. Roma Roma Roma did pretty. Well Yeah when you fell asleep to God is not in it yeah. Roma was pretty good parts. I was awake for you know. There are subtitles. I now I saw parasite what's the next Next One cinematography getting along the real watch the Oscars. It'd be less time right. Start finished for good shots. We got the Irishman. For What Shots Best Cinematography do adapted screenplay writer? No okay what we're doing reminded. Mars having hard time just announcing them right now. I'd probably have another big one finger gesture. The Irishman joker the lighthouse. Who I wanted to see the light.

I'm Lauren laptops and you're floating in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. I'm on vacation baby. It looks so great. Up there things insane. How Crystal Clear the bridge compared to how low quality where you look in terms of labor is one of the video as this is off to a bad start for me? No it's perfect today. We're discussing star wars. The last Jedi. Our guest is a comedian writer. On the good place and James Corden he's the former host of punch-up the jam. And the Gilmore guys podcast. It's Demi Digitally Bay. You did God. I really felt nervous. Oh and sorry I. It's unfair almost. I have to say my name because Jimmy is so easy and then a digitally Bayfield diving into the deep end. You nailed it. I thought it sounded good but also it's not my name. I felt confident but then yeah okay. Well we're so happy to have you here and Maria was just telling me that your quote unquote leaked footage of the Landau rap for Solo Star. Wars movie went viral and I just watched it and it's awesome. Thank you and and the rumor is that that earned you an invitation to the film's Premiere as true did yeah I got to go to the solo premier But it also. I think it also helped that I was also invited to go to the force awakens premier. Did that happen? How did that happen? Because Disney was trying to do some stuff with people through vine so they invited a bunch of us to go and they invited me and my friend meal to go and funny enough I had. I'd seen exactly one star wars movie before that point but I was working at a place where all my co workers are Big Star Wars fans and I was like they're going to hate me if I don't watch all the movies so I just watched all of the movies and like the weekend and then it was like all right. I've seen them now. Let's go to the premier. How was it watching them back to back it was? I felt it was very weird like as a way to watch it for the first time because I just kept going Yes the thing that Yeah No. Yeah for about this Yeah I've heard about that too. Yep this just that famous thing so it's just like reminding my brain of all the things I've seen is like parodies on the simpsons or whatnot. But it was good. Yeah we really relate to that. I think we've been like been. It's been kind of fun to finally see the context for the things that you've just seen parodied forever and like oh I get it now okay. Wasn't that confusing. Oh what a fun thing. Everyone's loved for years. Exactly I had you so you you obviously have seen the last Jedi before you re watch it for this. Or are you going off your? Ira watched it twice. I re watched it at one two and a half hour. I know God the lake month that it came out. I saw it three times and I remember tweeting. That's four hundred and fifty hours. That's too much time. Not for distributors. It's more than fifty minutes. I don't know the mathematics yes right. Yeah okay yes wait. That's way too much time to spend watching this move. Yeah I agree. I agree but I also think that it has been. I have not regretted a single minute of it. I watched it last night for the PODCASTS. And then today I've been doing like a puzzle to keep myself sane in quarantine which is not really the activity of a sane person. But I on the background puzzles for fun when we'RE NOT IN QUARANTINE. I bought this puzzle before quarantine and then was like maybe now's the time. Oh I mean no Very Sane activity but then today I was doing the puzzles. I WanNa put on something in the background and I was like I got about two hours. Let's watch the director's commentary. Director's commentary let you in on anything. You did it now about the movie a few different things. Yeah like a little tidbits here and there Some cameos in some Reasons that he cast people and whatnot a lot of fun little details that I feel like most people will be like. Oh I don't care about that but I was just like ooh Nice. Well let's give a little background in the movie. The movie was released December. Fifteen th two thousand seventeen. It was written and directed by Ryan. Johnson an Ecole. What did you just read off the Bat? What did you think about this movie right off the Bat? When Yoda appeared ice creamed? Yoda and the nicer neath they started to the same thing. I cried because I said I love Yoda. And Iota is dead but I was so happy that we got to see iota again and then I was like am I losing my mind that I just cried over Yoda. And then I was like the Yodel rule I was truly really excited to see iota and I and it was the sign that I'm officially like a star wars door like I was like I love him. This is a movie. Made me a star Wars Dork. Yeah See I like force awakens better than this one. This one felt a little disjointed for me. Really also yet. You didn't think there was like a lot going on. I liked that. There's a lot going on. I kind of agree and this will really is one of my favorites now. Oh I didn't hate it. My favorite scene was Kylo red shirtless with the highest wasted pants. I've ever seen in a galaxy insane and his body is so broad. I know he's built like a brick. I was like Oh very horny movie. Oh yeah well. There's not enough kissing in this movie. I think there was only like one kiss and it was kind of weird. Yeah there's a kiss of the end where you wait Yes yeah. Why did they do that? I I don't know all right. Well let's walk through the plot a little bit here so shortly after the destruction of the star killer based General Leia Organza leave the back of the resistance forces. When the first order fleet arrives against his orders. Po Damron leads costly counter attack. That destroys the first order. Dreadnought the remaining resistance escapes into hyperspace but then the first order uses device to track them and attacks them again. Kylo Ren hesitates to fire on the lead resistant ship after syncing. His mother Leah Leah's presence on board but his wingman destroy the bridge. Killing most of the resistance leaders lay is dragged out into space but survives using the forest. Where while Labour covers vice admiral? Hondo Ho Ho hold on hold on hold. Hold hold assumes command of the resistance running low on field or meaningfully is pursued by the first order. Okay now that took about an hour and a half just so we're on the same page or did it took so long. This movie truly happens in real time and then when layovers like dead in space but then uses the force. I was like this. This league franchise doesn't give a shit about killing people just kill late. No one no one ever dies in this franchise. If they die they come back as a ghost. It's really just. Do you want to get out of this or not and if you WANNA come back at anytime always space here. I'm like yes you're always welcomed back. I liked when Leo was like in the like coma bubble. I thought that was kind of exciting. And the fact that her daughter is in the movie yeah yes. She's got cute little leg buns. It was very cute. I thought that was nice and they had all their scenes together. Apparently her dog has a cameo to really has an alien in the Casino Planet. I know lot about this. Move the dog the dog. I don't remember seeing a dawn. It's like a small cameo. It's like it's not like a focus on it and you're like oh there's the dog. Oh that's funny. This I feel like that is a kind of fun thing about the franchise that they just like sneak in people's like relatives. I guess dog next while I was listening to Your Force Awakens Episode Employment. The point that it's just like how does anyone that isn't related to someone already on Star Wars getting more. It's ridiculous the IT'S HARD. I did like seeing Laura dern how did Laura dern get it did she just say hey? I like Star Wars and they're like put on this purple egg. Get in here. I think it's the law in Hollywood. You have to offer Laura dern first refusal rights on any role said Yes to this one. I love her. I was very excited to see her too but it kind of felt like she's too like I'm so used to her being like normal movies like it was kind of weird to see this. I was very much like that's Laura dern takes you out a little bit yeah. Yeah it's like Casting Brad Pitt and star wars. You're like come on. That's I know who that dying. Their hair purple isn't like Oh new person no and it felt like when Laura dern was talking to Leea- I was like this is the first day they met. He just felt like very like to actors and acting in a scene. Yes I agree okay. I'M GONNA keep reading a little more of what happens in this movie. Okay on watch tow. Is that the name of that? 'cause I don't remember ever hearing the word oxygen gets too. I sorry I also just listened to your force awakens up so I heard you guys say that repeatedly I'll I'll mention it. Oh my therapy I honestly. I think the way that you pronounce them is great though because every name and stars fucking ridiculous. They're all apes like Jim Misspelling. Po Daman is just someone misspelled. Cameron said Fuck it. I feel like most of the words in Star. Wars are like they put a bunch of letters in like a little bucket. Shook it up and drop the bucket. And they're like that's the name of that planet. Absolutely it's like boggle. Oh Yeah boggled on act to man. It's more funds. They say it's more fun when Nicole. Snooky. That's true. Well that's his name Ray. Attempts to recruit Luke Skywalker to the resistance under self-imposed exile. Luke refuses to help and says that the judge should end after encouragement from two D to he agrees to give raith three lessons in the ways of the force ray and Kylo begin communicating through the forest. Which puzzles them? Both Kylo tells. Ray that luke feared his power luke confesses that he momentarily contemplated killing. Kylo upon sensing that Snooky was corrupting him. Which prompted Kylo to destroy? Luke's new Jedi order convinced that Kylie can be redeemed ray leaves Alberto. Luque prepares to burn the library but hesitates the spirit of Luke's master. Yoda appears and destroys the library by summoning a bolt of lightning and he encourages luke to learn from his failure. This is where I got really into it. Isn't it weird that everyone's got a weird name and then someone has the name Luke? I just can't get over there with that. Why am I? Their name is no and your name's Ben mcadoo. Give make bond or something. All of them should be names that I've never heard. Yeah agree lack skywalker. Yeah but don't you think it's weird that Kylo Ren chose Kyla chose it will or maybe snooky gave it to him but his name was Ben. Sola? Oh right confused by the Ben Part because okay when the movie someone goes like someone says Ben and I was like. Oh that's OBI WAN because wasn't Obi Wan Kanobi. Yeah but I think he was named after he was named after Obi Wan by Hans and Laya and then he went. I'm not been I'm rand now. I'm Kylo rain. What a weird name. Also every time they spoke through the force I was like I'm getting warning. It's warning lane that comes in. Yes absolutely in the scene where Laura dern is like dressing-down opponents like I've dealt with flowers was like you. You're impulsive dangerous. Every time I'm watching immediately fucking after the scene was like Kylo and Ray are like in love like Oh yes. Something is happening between them. They're going to make out there touching through the force. They're getting past that social distancing. Yeah they truly are. There are breaking all the social distancing rules well. I thought that they were really GonNa Kiss and then I thought she was. GonNa go to the dark side and actually wanted her too. Because I thought that was going to be cool. Yeah well she does. Kinda go to the dark side like when she gets her first lesson or whatever and then Luke is like you didn't even resist and then later in the movie she liked dives into the dark side. And then there's like hundreds of her and I was like I don't get this. Yeah I don't understand that at all but it's very cool it is very very and you've seen it like eight times and you don't understand hope for us. We'll never get it. I'm also like every time I watch. There's a part where I'm like. Oh I understand this now better and I think it's just because part of me is just so focused on like the aesthetics of it and another part of me is just like I just listen to like different parts of it. Every time I watched the movie still my favorite one. I just go back a little bit because I want to talk about rose as well have. We gotten into that she rules the little one who then goes off within. Yeah Yeah yes I liked her and I remember. People disliked her and me after watching the movie. I was like how could you have disliked? That cute fun character only wants to help. I didn't get that. I think they dislike her because they consider her character. Not Very in the spirit of Star Wars and that. She's just like very. She's a small part of this resistance and suddenly gets blown up to be a big part of everyone's like there are so many characters you should be focusing on the movie so long you go to this dumb casino planet and to me. I'm like this. Is the first star wars movie that feels like they are taking into account the fact that it's a war and I'm like that's why she's like no. What are we doing here? We shouldn't be doing this to kill people. Were protecting people anyway. I love her yeah. I liked her character and I also know that you mentioned the casino. I was lucky I loved the Casino. I like the Casino the Casino. I loved the Casino. I thought every set piece in the casino was like so much fun and then was that Justin Theroux at the table. Sure was yes I was like. What a weird cameo. Another weird camera on the scene that alien who calls them out for parking in the wrong place. That's Joseph Gordon Levitt. Why wait what did he look like? The one who is like Brown like I'm trying to be a white robe. He's the one who's like they're they are. Get them him. He has a cameo every Ryan Johnson. Movie that's why. Oh that'll literally bananas so wild Nicole. Did you see the alien? That had like twenty tits that one that was like a lady with like all white like orbs on her. And she's just like Oh wait we have to talk about when Luke. Drink the milk from the others and it was all over his beard. I was like this is sick. The sickest fucking Shit I've ever seen when he put that bottle up to the ticket yes and then like drank it. I was like what? Are you trying to prove my innocence? I think it's great to me. I thought it was absolutely sick when there was like green juice in his lawyers. Sick really may be right. Because it's I think it's partially him trying to fuck with Ray and being like all right. This is my life here. If you really WANNA stay you're gonNA see me drink green milk out this alien every day and then it's also partially like I think it is like Paul Bunyan Taylor He. He's like in the scene before this. He just stabbed giant fish after vaulting over Canyon carries it up the mountain and then he's like oh I also drink milk straight from the editor of the animal. I'm just like you're just Paul Bunyan pasteurized milk. I not if you're a real strong space man I actually. I did like that montage. Where he was like doing. All his like. Paul Bunyan Shit that when he killed that huge first of all he drinks the milk he takes like a spear ride over to the other side of a mount. He's he just kills a huge fish bigger than have fun. It was fun it was a lot to take in. Apparently they airlifted that thing into Ireland. Just for that scene and I keep thinking about the amount of work that goes into dislike one because they just like made it practically a number like it was real. Yeah that's another thing that put so much work into these movies like we're going to airlift of this thing in and it's just going to be there for a single shop like imagine sculpting that. I we gotta get these teats just right so we can put milk. Outta them and then marks gonNA drink the milk and it's all going to get in his beard and that's in the script so weird I also. I mean it's later when ray shoots the whole through her little hut than those little people were so mad at him. I love those little aliens. They're like a little niche aretha. Love them and then when she hit the Rock and the rock fell on their little wagon and they were so upset. I loved them. They were so funny. I'm on their son. She comes to their own. Fuck up their shit. Come on. I thought this movie had like a lot of good like practical effects. It felt like they were a lot more real looking Aliens Wurley puppet looking which I liked. I agree so more into this. Meanwhile yes po interests in mechanic rose. Her name is mechanic. Rose and eight ball with a secret mission to deactivate the first orders tracking device. Mas Catanha directs them to a Casino Town. And my he's like in a war of her. Yeah he's flipping around she's shooting people spinoffs and spinoffs. That's Lupita character. I love her. I love her. Yeah Jerry and representations he's adorable and I love those little goggles. That don't have a bridge. Where she I? It's so cute. There's a line she says in the Force Awakens where she just says. Where's my boyfriend in relation to chew and it makes me laugh every time cute so they go to. Canto Bite. Were they need the hacker? Dj pursued by local security. They escaped the city with the help of stable hand. Children and racing animals. They set free thin rose. Dj Infiltrates Nike's flagship. But they're captured by captain flaws MMA and then Kylo brings rain as Snooky who reveals that he connected their minds. Discover Luke's whereabouts. Who's kept Oh? Dj IS DJ's Benicio Del Toro who looked very good. Yeah there were there. Were points that. They're trying so hard to make them not look good and it's not working shaved. His eyebrows halfway. I think they were kind of weird but I was in a hot man. He did have a weird stutter. That came and left. I felt like it was a weird choice cartoon character which is why I like him. He's weird when DJ turns. I was like not surprised I was like. He's a shady person. You didn't know him. I wasn't really invested in him being a good person so when he turned like who cares he's also the only character that does that. I feel like in the entire franchise the closest Landau but then he's like actually a good guy the whole time and like deejays just gone so it's just like seeing a morally grey character and a star wars movie. Felt weird to me but I think I like I also felt like. Dj comes into play like pretty late in the movie. And I was like I. I'm not getting invested in him just like didn't really pay attention Nicole I was GonNa say I just learned that I taught you how to say It's I taught you the wrong way how to say donal. Don't know don't own. Oh Yeah I said I was saying donal anyway but now he now and now we can speak about him with reverence. Donal sounds like we have an accident. We said don't know. Don't don't in this movie while we love. Don't nine eleven so much but I will say they put more red around his. Is they think to make him less attractive and I was like. You can't make him less attractive to me. He's so cute. I hate his hair and these movies and they make him ugly as he can be. But it's still. He's still hot yes. He's very honestly. I would be part of the. What is it the first order just to be near him? It would be interesting. You join the Nazis for hot nuts in what I'm saying. Yes that easy okay. I'm GonNa read our next here. Hold Dole plans to evacuate the remaining members of the resistance using small transport vessels believing her plan to be cowardly and futile POA. Leads a mutiny layer recovers and stuns. Po with a blaster allowing the evacuation to proceed. Holdover remains aboard the ship as a decoy to mislead snooky fleet as the others flee to an abandoned base on crate. Dj Buys his freedom by revealing the resistances planned General Hawks and the first order fleet begins firing on the evacuation transports destroying many. They should've just called her door. Learn or something. Just lean into it door alone. No is her name. Is She holding way? Older? She's hold. Oh yes she looks amazing. In this photo we have in our little carriers there also. I like the evil bb bb ninety. Yes yes I liked that little evil one. They don't focus enough on the evil one no and I wanted more. People did a lot in this movie. Beaming APL was like a full on character. Yeah Yeah and I was like you didn't need the people could just do it. I think they should go full. Wally with spin off and just give us a BB eight falling in love spinoff. Yes absolutely love that. I think people had a lot of great moments like when he was on. Top of the Like Monster Claw machine and like drove it in. Those are the epic moments. How'd you guys feel about the Porguese? I love the boarder great. We were the towards the little thing that she was going to then didn't eat. Oh they're like I love them so much. I STILL. I want Porguese Merton. I remember being like I don't know about this and then the pork shoulder. Delightful Porguese are amazing. The Crystal critter amazing cute thing. Apparently they came up with these things. It came with because the island. They were shooting on had so many fucking ducks and they were like. We can't get these out of the way. So they were like what we create a creature that looks like them that we can see joe or some of them really funny. I link grabs that. I love that and I love. We'll see the kind of creativity that I think. Some of these movies were lacking link. I think this movie had a lot of things that I thought were really artistic. Like cool choices like where the sand turns red when you touch it or whatever like There were a lot of cool things that just felt really real but also likes. I've never seen before and some of the previous ones. We felt were just so. Cgi So fake looking that it was like that's not even interesting joy. This felt like it had a lot of like practical things. That were really cool. I agree and before we get into the rest of the movie. We gotta take a break. Democracy is bad what I'm just kidding. What a bad way to start to get your attention sour energy to come into this. Riley and SPA Jeffrey. James we are the hosts Review Review on the had podcast network take reviews from the farthest reaches of the Internet. We're talking YELP. Google reviews Amazon product reviews tripadvisor.

This gagged me the little lightsaber. Yes and it went right through him. I was like ooh wait. This is I loved it. So then he defeats the Praetorian Guards. With with raise help and then ray hopes. Kylo has abandoned the dark side but instead he asks her to rule the galaxy with him. Much like Anikin does with OBI WAN is on Hanley over. He tells Natalie Portman to come with him but then he also tells me he tells me to come with him but then he also tells you and Mcgregor that like we can rule together or whatever and you and McGregor. What does this in revenge of this? This is the third one okay right before he gets all burnt up. I was the first star wars movie I ever saw but I still have not seen the first episode one and two because I was just like I don't care I think it's worth it because everyone says it's bad and I'm like okay then I'll skip them. I think it's worth it took. Nicole found a lot to love and some of those movies. Love Jar Jar bigs. He's an incredible character. I think chargers fun me too. So you'll like the movies. I Bet I will so refusing she battles him for control of lutes light. Luke's lightsaber bisecting the weapon. Hold on sacrifices herself by slicing through snoopy's flagship at light speed crippling the first order so cool. It was very cool. That was cool sitting in the theater. During that moment like you could hear a Pin. Drop the silences so good. This movie uses like silence very well. Yes Yeah so then ray escapes the destruction while Kylo declares himself supreme leader. Bb eight ball freeze Finn in rows and they defeat flags plasma flags ma. I joined the survivors house motives. Now I like plasma and they joined the survivors on great than the first order. Arrives Pope Ben and rose attack. The obsolete speeders arranger. Becca draw the type fighters away from the Millennium Falcon. While rose stops spins from sacrificing himself. The first order penetrates the resistance fortress easing a siege. Cannon Luke Appears and confronts the first order allowing the surviving resistance to escape. Which was that was an exciting part but I also was happy that Po- or whatever understood that's what was happening because he's like no he's stalling for us. He's helping as a that was lucky. Okay it was very lucky. I think that scene is my favorite scene in all of the stores movies. Like it's just such a good great scene. Yeah while look out there and kilos in the thing. And then he's all of the guns on him and he can. He's like shaking. I couldn't stop laughing. It wasn't sane. That was insane. You just a mood little boy. Yeah and then Luke gets. He's not dead which was like amazing Well we find out that he was using the forest from a mountain top. And he wasn't even there the way the hell gun hits them and then explodes in a cloud of dust. And what looks like blood? I was like Jesus CHR- I thought it was just like him. Exploding like what the fuck is doing. I know I was like we gotta man calmed down. Oh my God okay. Kylo orders the first orders forces to fire Lupu. They failed to harm him. He then engages Luke in a lightsaber. Duel upon striking Luke. Kyle Kylo realizes that Luke is not physically present but projecting his image through the force. Ray helps the remaining resistance escape on the Falcon and exhausted. Luke Dies peacefully on act to to becoming one with the forest last sense. His death and Latte tells Ray the resistance can rise again at Kanto bite. The stablehands recount the story of Luke skywalker afterward. One of them moves a broom with the force and gives his base. Oh he moved in with the force. I didn't really be watching it and in that moment I was crying. I don't know why but I was just like that. Little boy is a yowling. And it's GonNa be a guy and I was like Ooh I feel like I I. I got that he was a judge but I didn't. I didn't get why I guess. Just because he had that ring on but I didn't realize he was moving the broom with the force. It was such a thing that it makes you go What but I think it's supposed to be like a symbol that like. Oh there's more than just like the Jedi aren't done with Ray. Even it's like they're Throughout the galaxy anyone can be a jet. I who is but then I was like is rag and it'd be like a Jedi master issue going to like lead the new Djeddai regime. You'll just have to see the next on kidding. What did you think about? Those are big horses things or whatever. I loved those big horses. I thought they were so much fun. And then when they were running through the town with the lights and stuff and they're like like I. I thought it was very exciting very fun and then I liked it. They got set free at the end me too. That was really cute. Also here's some trivia so although Disney decided to not use George. Lucas's story outlines for episode. What is this seven and eight? I Donna These v One. V One one and one x this USA episode V. An ex you purchase company a couple of as ideas surface in this film including skywalker living as a recluse and training a female Janai. Oh so that was his idea interesting. A- I gotta say I did enjoy that there was so many I like there was more women this one had the most I agree. And they're all important. It seems yeah and like different types of women like I thought like those compared to like Laura dern character. They all had different strengths. Earns you got Moss Kanada? You got an alien ladies lady in a big metal suit. Plasma Eight plasmas a woman. Yeah I wait. I didn't get that Gwendolyn Christie. From game of thrones. I've never seen a game. What always she is very tall. I thought it was a guy didn't do they talk. Yes they did talk and I did I did. It was a woman. I guess I didn't really pay close enough attention to the words you don't gender. It's fine ads true okay. After reading the script for the film Mark Hamill told writer Director Ron Johnson. I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice. You've made now having said that I've gotten off my chest and my job now is to take what you've created and do my best to realize your vision. Despite the ultimately divisive response among fans following the film's Release. Hamill later said in a statement that he had maintained respect for Johnson as well as episode V extractor. Jj Vicks Seir. I wonder what direction he wanted to go in. I think a lot of people when this movie came out. That's not luke. Luke would never be a pussy who just lives on an island and who thinks about killing His grandson and I I feel like that's such a dumb thing to say because the whole point is that he made that mistake. And it's like yeah. That's not who I should be in this movie's about him realizing that he shouldn't be doing that. But I don't know I think also just wanted him to be like a bad ass lightsaber wielding master. But I almost think that's too simple like I liked this storyline and that he had like an emotional journey that he's been going on and thinking about him like lit. Starting this whole different life on this island and stuff. It was like more interesting. I agree I thought it was more interesting to so then. When he liked finally becomes the force I was like. Wow it meant something to me because I was like. He did make a mistake during training he did. You know scare Kylo into fully going all the way to the dark side and then also Kylo just like his GRANDPA killed young. Ling's Yup offscreen just saying fuck it. Yeah he just killed some young wings and took him to the dark side with them and I was like I like. I like a lot of the a lot of these movies are second. Beats of things that happened in the original three and I like that. Yeah I like that too. Well it's also making it more fun to watch these like. I think I was at Paul. I think on the last episode. Maybe were saying like people like some of the complaints are sometimes that it feels like they're remaking some of the first movies which just like new characters but I like that because it's like we were bored by the first one and now it's fun and action packed and like similar storylines but I can follow it and I like all the people swim. Doesn't feel like a remake of any of them to me. Which is maybe why I think I like it. The most that it takes little pieces that you're like oh that's kind of like this thing in the original but then it goes very far different directions with it. That's why this one's more successful because it seems like just like more creative like it feels like they just kind of like used the the world and spanned out a little bit. Which is kind of fun I I was I liked there. Were so many random things happening in this movie and different things. They're following an exciting little moments. Another piece of Trivia is Carrie Fisher was also a well known writer who services are also often called upon to act as a script doctor for other films. She began declining such assignments. When producers would solicit her story ideas than hire someone else to actually change the script and use. Fisher's ideas without paying her however Director Ryan. Johnson revealed that Fisher helped with the writing of the script for this film. I love that. Why would people take her ideas and not pay her? She's like so awesome. I don't know I think people hate women. I forgot might be Anissa okay. I had heard this before. This is a funny one when filming Laura Dern said every time she shot her although not audible one. Such instance even made it into the finished film. It can be noticed in the close up shot. One holdall is stunning her opponents. I want to go back and look at. That is funny. I do the same thing if you shooting and you can't hear the gun sounds I'd be like all right. Let's I wanted. I need this very funny. I actually recently had to shoot some things. Shoot somebody in something around like shooting like five people and I kept going and it was very and I. I think that might be where I learned that. She said it's very funny yourself. Carrie Fisher ad libbed the line. I changed my hair which was accused joke. she's so fucking she's so awesome so great. These movies really made me like appreciate her. I I started liking her a lot in re recently because she was on catastrophe as the mom of Rob Delaney's character I think and she's really great on that and I was like. Oh she's so funny and then she's in when Harry met Sally and she's really funny in that but I only knew her those things which is stupid because she's obviously so famous for these movies. I didn't know appreciate that. I knew of her through Star Wars and then also knew she was like a very famous script doctor and then I was like Oh what does she know written. And it's like oh she was like the go-to person to bring in and right like comedy in like the eighties the seventies and like road on the blues brothers and a bunch of other stuff. And I'm just like Oh what the fuck why. Why have we been just using her for such like little such limited? Use of Carrie Fisher. Yeah she also look interviews with her. She's just so smart and so smart and she's so quick Which is like so. I love watching a person able to like hold their own and be so funny. I thoroughly enjoy her. It's great yeah. Here's the Lillard Trivia that three resistance fighters who pop up from the trenches on crate. Our Mark Hamill's children ball just related to get moving getting into the movie. I think an either this one or in the Force Awakens Tom. Hardy has a cameo as a stormtrooper. Really yeah wait. Who in a deleted scene? Tom Hardy has a cameo in star. Wars yeah let me see the last crazy. They deleted the scene. And I'm like good because no one wants to be like. Is that Tom Hardy. But Yeah Oh to be famous enough to just go. Can I be in Star Wars? And they go yeah. That's what we're trying to do. I mean that's how Samuel Jackson got into it. Yeah they make more star wars movies. What is it also in the casino scene? I was so excited there were so many black people in a a lot of black people in the casino. They put us all in the in the scum the rich people. Because there's like here's the place where all the awful one percenter piece of shit on. I was happy I was like. We got something in the future. It's a fantasy. Johnson says. He held on to the joke with Hudson at the beginning of the movie. Feeling that he needed to break the ice until the audience upfront that it was gonna be okay to laugh in this movie. He likens the tone of the scene to a monty python sketch. What party they talking about the part where he calls them. And it's like I got a message for general hugs. Oh that hard. A lot of people hate why? It's fun I thought it was funny and I was even in the future. We can't hear each other. It's fun but then a bit to buy time and I I was like it's a smart funny bit and I thought it worked with the movie. Let's see some of these reviews from the time when this movie came out. Todd McCarthy from the Hollywood reporter says Star Wars. The force awakens pumps new energy and life into a hollowed franchise in a way that both resurrects old pleasures and point in promising. New Directions I agree with that review agreed to Some of the negative reviews. Entertainment editor. Marlow stern from the daily beast suggested people skip the last Jedi. He stated Johnson's follow up to the force. Awakens felt overstuffed and incredibly disjointed a collection of correlated raw scenes. And little else. I agree with that but I didn't know what I liked about it. Yeah Kyle Smith from the National Review said so many elements in episode. The one one one recycled in could have been called rerun of the jet. I run tomatoes. The rating from critics as ninety one percent of the audience score is forty three percent. Oh interesting I'm really surprised. People don't like it but see we're always quote unquote wrong with our opinions. Yes we are very very wrong. This is very much a movie that made the audience like it was like the people who hated it really really hated it and the people who liked it really really liked it and feels like there's not a lot of middle ground which I I don't love because it just feels like now. Everyone's like opinion of this film is weirdly political initiative. No you can just be like that was nicer dot and like it but yeah it's an it's a weird like this moving it's not like like none of the other ones really feel like a battleground. Yeah I feel like I really like this movie but if it was one hour shorter I would've loved it correctly. I thought it was like slightly too long but I did like it. I liked it a lot. I may be wanted even more of Luke giving Ray jet training. Oh Yeah Right. I don't think she got enough. Yeah and that was kind of the most exciting part. I liked that it was like a female character. That was getting that sort of moment and and she and you could tell she was going to be really good at it and he didn't really expect that or whatever and then she so awesome and I liked that whole storyline with her character. Especially considering I feel like in the previous movie with her. I didn't really care about her that much but I felt like yes. He became important to me in this one. I felt like they gave her a little bit more to do in this movie. I thought I liked her character much better in this one. I also like that. They basically go. Yeah you're not really related to anyone who gives a shit about your parents. Let's move on because I've spent the last few movies being like who the fuck is she. Who Issue who are parents? Who are they and then the movie was like nobody over okay. Should we read some nice reviews that people have given us? Oh my God yes if you guys are enjoying the show. Please review the podcast on Apple podcasts. And we're we like to read some of these nice ones. You want to read the first one. Yes this one is entitled on point.

Popcorn with Peter Travers

Oscars 2020 Preview

"The HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion. ABC Oscars for Sunday. You'll be seeing stars. Leonardo DiCaprio Charlene Darren Tom. Hanks personal all League Scarlett Johansson. It's movies biggest night going here. Billy helped on the bell feed Margot Robbie Brad Pitt and Lsu Crew Timothy Shalam on who will win gold and the Oscar goes to be offered. Live Sunday eight hundred five Pacific on A._B._C..
