Carrie Fisher gets her Walk of Fame star, on May the Fourth
"On May the fourth Carrie Fisher received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Fisher joined Star Wars costars with Hollywood stars, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill. She was our princess damn it. And the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent and ferociously funny take charge woman who took our collective breath away. Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, wearing her mother's portrait printed on her metallic dress accepted the star. She was throwing around a lot of glitter. My mom was glitter. She covered her world, and it both literally and metaphorically. She left a mark of her sparkle on everyone she met. People in the crowd were dressed as characters from the Star Wars franchise. People's love for Leia didn't die with my mom. It continues to get passed on from generation to generation. Billy Lorde said no one will ever be as hot or as cool as princess Leia. I'm Ed Donahue
The Tragedy of Lebanon's Currency Devaluation
"All right Friends, well, if you have been on Bitcoin Twitter this week, you've probably seen some tweet like this hyper viral message from Leia halpern. She writes, Lebanon Central Bank has announced it will devalue its currency by 90% as of tomorrow. Imagine waking up one day in your life savings are gone. Absolutely criminal. Now on the surface this is a totally understandable take, but in many ways what happened this week was not the trigger event, but instead. The culmination of years of monetary and economic horror for the people of Lebanon, so today we're going to try to give all that a bit more context and this is a story I've been following almost as long as this podcast has been around. In April 2020, I released an episode called when currencies fail, a primer on the crisis in Lebanon. At that time, part of why Lebanon had exploded into consciousness for the citizens of Bitcoin Twitter were provocative headlines saying that Bitcoin was trading at 15,000 U.S. dollars per Bitcoin in Lebanon. That was more than twice the $7000 price it had in U.S. markets. Now when one poked and prodded, this was the classic issue of the difference between the official and the black market exchange rate. In other words, Bitcoin wasn't trading at a 200% premium. The black market for Lebanese lira, which are also known as Lebanese pounds, instead valued the pound at only 50% of what the official exchange rate did. Thus the two X premium if you priced Bitcoin in the official exchange rate.

Anti-abortion priest Pavone defrocked for blasphemous posts
"The Vatican defrost a U.S. priest who is very active in supporting anti abortion and Donald Trump. The Vatican calls former father Frank pavone's communications on social media, blasphemous and says it was his persistent disobedience of his bishop who repeatedly told him to stop as partisan activism for Donald Trump that got him to frock a defiant pavone appeared on his social media wearing his church collar under a biker jacket Sunday to answer questions and call attention to what he says is decades of persecution by the church.

It's okay, so it's a little sparkly. Yeah. It's not quite the resolution of the rest of the. World. It looks like kind of princess Leia. I mean, it looks like it's kind of right. Well, yeah. But whereas a four K TV has 8 million pixels and an 8 K TV has 33 million pixels, cammy has several billion. Like 10 billion. Yeah, that's kind of amazing. Yeah. And that's just one little thing coming from one little panel. And then ultimately, you can scale that because the panel is tileable. So you can just put a bunch of them together and make a wall size display. Wow. For $30 billion. Which will come first. MicroLED or 3D oh, MicroLED will come first because it's already here. Yeah. You can buy a MicroLED display today. You spend close to a million bucks on it. And it's 2D but it's wonderful. It's incredible. That's going to be the next thing. Yeah. After QD opening. Have they solved the issue with the borders because I remember the tile borders. It was problematic. Really, well, in some cases, you can see those borders. With some lighting or some imagery, like for example, space scenes, dark space, and sometimes see those borders. But it's not bad. It's not bad. Okay. That's not bad. And some are better than others.

"You're listening to the Dan bongino show. Here he is, Dan bongino. Now cryptocurrency, you know, that's one of those things that you don't really know what you're doing. You can get hurt pretty bad. A lot of people don't know you know, I don't even know what they are. It's not that they're ignorant. They just, you know, they invest in other things, or they have jobs and lives you don't get too into it, but if you don't know about it, you can probably get hurt pretty bad. So I like to have Leia halpern on my show. She's been on my Fox show many times because she's awesome and super smart and knows a ton about cryptocurrencies. You can check her out. She's got a YouTube show called the Leia halpern show. Leia, thanks for coming on the show. We appreciate it. Thanks so much for having me Dan. Always love talking about the most important things of the freedom and everything else. You're so great. I see your clips on social media. Again, you can check out a show of the layout burn show. It's pretty terrific. She's wonderful. So you are, you probably recoil and hard at the term expert. Everybody does. But you know a lot about a cryptocurrencies. And it's a big issue right now. Yeah, I know experts, right? Like everybody calls himself, but you do, you know a lot, you do your homework. There's a lot of panic out there about cryptocurrencies. A lot of them, whether Bitcoin or Ethereum or others have lost a significant portion of their value. So what do you say to people who say, this is it? The apocalypse, crypto is junk I don't like it. Forget it. How do you respond to that stuff? Yeah, I mean, you know, now is a very difficult time for a lot of people, admittedly, you know, the market is down. People have lost some people have lost their life savings. But what I would say is it's really important to make a distinction between Bitcoin and crypto. Now a lot of cryptocurrencies are basically startups because some of them have only really been around for not even a year. And so naturally with any startup, it can come crashing down and it can never really recover. 90% of cryptocurrencies actually don't recover during a bear market. I make this distinction because then you have something like a Bitcoin, which is different. It's been around since 2009, and it's something which is actually stood the test of time. It's just several bear markets. It's good a pandemic. And also it's very important to realize that the technology is completely different. Bitcoin is decentralized. It's not a startup. There is no CEO. And so that distinction is very important. And I think the fundamental value of Bitcoin is still there. Ultimately, it's supposed to be an alternative form of money immune from government corruption. It's this alternative system just because it is so decentralized. There is no Central Bank. There is no money printing. And so that fundamental value regardless of the price still exists and is still there. Completely different to all the other cryptos, which a lot of them are simply made to pump and dump. A lot of them are centralized with CEOs which end up dumping on the entire market because they hold the majority of the claims and then they sell. So the distinction is the most important thing that I would make. Yeah, that's important. Yeah, crypto and Bitcoin, Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency, all cryptocurrencies are not Bitcoin. We're talking to lay a halpern. A checker out her show lay helper and show it's really good noser stuff. There's some great clips on social media as well. How do you, by the way, just so yeah, you probably know from our interviews together. It's not the first time we've spoken. I'm agnostic. I'm an investor in multiple tech platforms. I'm agnostic on Bitcoin. I think the blockchain technology is a revolution in authentication technology, so I believe there's real value there. But you know, I'm friendly with Peter Schiff too. I know you guys have it out a lot. He hates Bitcoin. He's a gold guy, but how do you respond to critics who say with Bitcoin specifically? I get the other crypto as some of them are just pumping down some. But how do you respond to Bitcoin people like Peter Schiff who say you're not really buying anything? It's not backed by anything. What do you say to that? Yeah, it's an interesting idea. But I think what I say to that is it's such an old fashioned mindset, unfortunately. And I can understand why somebody likes Peter Schiff can't understand that because they don't think it's anything because they can't so that you see it. It's not something which is physically tangible, right? But you and I connected through social media through Twitter, that's not something physically tangible, but ultimately this digital space now suddenly has values. So I think we can all agree that we are ultimately moving forward into a digital space whether it's the metaverse, whether it's more social media, is going we are inevitably going that way. And so we need a form of money which adopts to that new world that we're moving into. It is inevitable. And what I would say, Bitcoin is backed by is the fundamental value is backed by the physical map and code that supports the network. You have minor physical miners, tangible things all over the world, whether it's Kazakhstan, Russia, Texas, the United Kingdom, wherever it is. You have difficult machinery, which literally confirms every single transaction that's ever happened. And so it's like saying to your grandparent, you know, I tried to explain to my grandparents, what do I do? Oh, you know, I do social media stuff. They don't get that because to them, social media, what is that? Is this irrelevant nonexistent world? And so it doesn't surprise me that Peter doesn't get it. But Peter did just tweet something actually recently about how his bank and his funds have been frozen or something like that and he can't move his money around and what would help him not gold, but Bitcoin. So there's the fundamental value. Talking to Leah halpern, she got her show Leia hopper and show, check it out. She's really awesome. The way I found you, I think I told you this the first time we met on my show there was you had done a fantastic segment. I think it was on Fox. It was a while ago and you were talking about something near and dear to my heart for all the wrong reasons I might add. Digital currencies. In other words, government, sponsored, not crypto, government sponsored digital currencies. You know, the currencies on your phone, it's on your computer, but it's not physical. It's on a coin, it's not a dollar bill, right? This is freaked me out forever. Surveillance reasons, government shutting down your ability to buy a gun

"Wonderful day. Thanks to our listeners. We'll see you later. Okay, so that panel was phenomenal. Kelly, but I loved your wrap up as well. Oh, thanks. It's something that I try to tell myself. Thank you all history. There's a lot of things that the Supreme Court has said shouldn't happen or can't happen that we are living with today. Isn't that the truth? I just, the thing that I keep coming back to, I think, are the points that were brought up repeatedly by all of our panelists, which is just that, you know, these decisions, these decisions have far reaching implications that are going to be felt. By all of us, but that there is going to be an undue burden placed on particular populations and that it is our job to try to make sure that we live in an equitable world and correct these problems. Yeah, I love that. And how that came up multiple times. And a big thing for me is something that John said and also something that Leia said, putting together, which is that John was saying, the Supreme Court doesn't take that many cases a year. And that is true. They don't. And so that means that even if people will sue and try to use this decision to invalidate gun laws, doesn't mean that we should stop pressing forward. And to that end, I love what a Leia said about thinking locally. And thinking about your community and what you can do there because I think that's also really important.

"Narrative points don't feel earned. It still has a lot of that going on. Like, for example, Leia being able to suddenly fix things like electronically, which they've not heard not me and we'll do that at all up until now. My favorite is Camille nanjiani showing up. I'll be on just being like, hey, and he's like, oh, hey, I'm here now. It's like, okay. Yeah. I was given more lines. Like, well, that was sudden. But I will say that I did like the twist on the third sister's character arc. I honestly did not see that coming, where it is revealed that she was one of the younglings killed at the potentially almost kill the Jedi temple as everyone else had been killed. I liked that her motivation was to kill Darth Vader. Yeah. That was interesting. To me. I kind of figured that she was a youngling or something like that. It fills out her character arc in a way that makes sense 'cause it's like, I didn't really have a problem with her. The actress, I had more of a problem with the way the character was written. It was very one dimensional, up until then, as I heard her job as a villain was to kind of stomp around and bark orders at people and scowl and she's a very cardboard cutout villain. And that's not necessarily the actress's fault, but it's the way the character was written. But making her in this situation where she's playing a role, she's acting for the sake of getting her real revenge. Well, and she has also legitimately sifi, you know? I mean, she's giving in to anger. She's giving in to hate. She's getting sissy with it. She is getting Sith with it. Like, there's no faking that. It's just that her motivations are different. It's like the old proverb, when you go out for revenge, dig two graves, you know, it's not bad. She's kind of destroyed herself and revenge. But also that dishes are delicious and cold..

At just 17, she donned the bantamweight world kickboxing championship title. Later joining the Israeli defense force and becoming a krav maga specialist and an undercover special forces intelligence officer. She then embarked on a professional cycling career, but after being told, she might not ever walk again following a devastating crash, Leia leaned into her superpower, her mindset, to aid her recovery and launch a brand new chapter in her extraordinary life. In 2021 at age 52 and entirely plant based I might add, Leia became the very first woman in the 39 year history of ram, the 3000 mile race across America to beat everyone, including all the men and outright win the solo division. Here's a glimpse into the power of mindset when you've been told your physical prowess is over, that healing will be lifelong. And that achievements will be something of your past and not your future. When I reach the peak kind of at that point where opportunities were handed to me, I had the mother of all crashes in cascade. You start descending in on those bikes, you can go very fast, almost up to a hundred kilometers an hour, 80 miles an hour. And as we're descending, the riders are starting to come up. And I'm seeing like 85 86. And then there's a rider kind of coming on my left hand side. And there's a center line rule and she kind of leans into me and at 80 kilometers an hour and on my face. It was a nightmare. I mean, I shouldn't be sitting here today based on that crash, right? But being in that position, I mean, they basically told me that your career is over. Your ability to walk properly without a walker or a cane would be very limited. And then a 100%, you won't be back on your bike again. And that's what I was left with as I was lying there and you know, in the trauma unit. Right. So I believe correct me if I'm wrong, like vela news dubbed this crash like the most epic crash of all time. Correct. At that time, correct, yes. And you were told that you might not walk properly again. Correct. I mean, I broke my both my ishim was shattered in my hips were broken. My arms, fingers and toes, busted, right? I was taking a pretzel and basically stepping on it, right? And explain to you the worst pain I'd ever been through. Everything hurt all the time, breathing, blinking, people opening and closing the door, the wind from that, right? It was a tough goal. Wow. How long were you in the hospital? Well, they couldn't move me out of the United States, I think, for a week. And then they transferred me to because I had to be airlifted from the crash to St. Charles and bend Oregon. And then my sister came to pick me up because I couldn't, you know, it was going to take a process to drive me back to Canada. Because also getting expensive because medical is expensive, right? Okay, so months in the hospital. Yes. But you have the gift of these doctors telling you you're not going to walk again, let alone get on a bike and ever race again, right? So what do you do with that information? You know what I said to them? I won't say it on there. I mean, how do you begin the rehab process? Well, listen, the only thing I could do was contract my abs. That was the only physical thing I could do, right? But I basically made a promise to myself. And I said, I don't care how long it takes or the kind of pain I'm going to go through. I'm going to get back on the bike. I'm going to race again. And I'm going to come back even stronger than I did before all this happened, right? And I think it happens to a lot of people in your face with this overwhelming situation. You don't know what to do. So you kind of buckle. So I knew I had a lot of work cut out for me, but I think everything is upstairs. It's what you believe in and what you make your body believe that you can do, right? Because honestly, if I believed everything that I was told, even growing up, again, I wouldn't be sitting here today. Right. But, you know, we all have our breaking points too. We do. But your ability to kind of compartmentalize all of that. And just focus on, okay, I can do this. How much of your military training comes into play in terms of having the mental rigor to just block out the fear and focus on the task at hand? Well, I think the military has a lot to do with it because it was part of their job, even during my military training to crack us mentally as best as they can, right? Because mental strength is much more powerful than physical strength. We all know that. But for me, at that point, going back to the hospital, I mean, how can they say something like that? I haven't even started my rehab. You know what I mean? Just to make that kind of prediction that fast, right? And I think that's the thing is that we're so quick to take the easy way out without being more optimistic of the things that we possibly can do. And the possibilities of just going after the things that you believe in. Because sometimes you're not going to get support from other people. You're going to have to believe in yourself, right? That's the thing is we're so influenced by other sources. But for me, I never was, never has been, and never will be. You know, what I want to do and what I'm determined to do. I'll make it happen. I'll find a way to make it happen. Right. So make it happen, you did. How long was the rehabilitation before you could get back on a bike? I was back on my bike, race ready in less than a season. So 8 months. 8 months. Wow. But every day, you know, I was better than the day before. And just staying positive and honesty. I sort of got being in that positive mode. I could feel things starting to bind. Because when I went to get re X rayed at the general hospital in Vancouver, a couple of months later, they were floored at how fast I was recovering. You know? And you attribute that to just being in motion. I think motion and mentally, you know what I mean? And just determine that I am going to get out of this. Yeah. So from the wheelchair, then how do you, I mean, are you walking with a limp? Oh, yeah, no, it goes from a wheelchair to a one crutch. Popping away and then it was even wheelchair to wheeling to my trainer, which was on a bike, whatever. And it took me like 40 minutes just to get from the wheelchair just to sit and be comfortable on the bike because it was the flashbacks. Despite the age old adage, you can't teach an old dog new tricks. What if I told you that.

"Make sure you opt in. I am going to keep reminding you about that because well, they pay the bills. It's a good deal. So I want to promote it for a multitude of reasons. So the pick 5 sequence is kind of a fun one. I'm trying to remember what it was. A week or two ago, we did a look through a sequel. Oh, is that Oakland? Where I kind of did the whole thing. Oh, I like this horse in the third leg. How would I possibly go about playing the horse, both win and exotic? And there was one, four to one. I was very happy. None of my exotic opinions were really that great. But again, it was the moral of the story hopefully was kind of just looking at the many different ways and approaches and kind of thought patterns in terms of deciding how to. What sequences to play, not how to play the sequence. Although we didn't talk a little bit about that, but more so, you know, I have this opinion, what are my options and what can I do with it? Now, in the pick 5 carry over here, we don't have that. We know. You've got to play the pick 5. 32,000 carried over. The sequence itself. The toughest leg for me having a real strong opinion was the first leg. To me, it was one of those races where you know it's a lower and main race made in 15,000, which, again, I don't follow turf away every day, so I don't know that they go much lower than this. I have a bit of a believer in that the bottom is the bottom no matter where you're at. If the bottom's 2500 at the bottom is 5000 if the bottom is 10,000. It's not necessarily that the 10,000 bottom horses somewhere are four times better than the maybe they are. But you get what I'm saying? Like the bottom is the bottom. It is for the horses who are the least fast and talented on the ground. And this race is a mile in a 16th maiden claimer for Phillies that are bottom end. And you have a lot of horses in here who have had a pretty fair number of tries. Now, you have a few lightly erased horses. There's a little bit of an unknown horse in the sense of the 5 noble enterprise who was running against better and running okay at Gulfstream and Belmont, but it was 2019 and 2020. So we haven't seen the source in a year and a half and it goes for a new barn. That's okay. And so that was kind of I just found myself in this race like kind of steering towards what I think are like the three or four obvious choices that everybody else is going to. The two is one, I think a lot of people are gonna grab too, but I didn't like it all. So that one's out for me. And again, just kind of at this point just talking about horses because we will talk about a little bit more about the sequence layout. But I thought the three made a little bit of sense Leia organa who should be somewhat forwardly placed hasn't run on synthetic, so that's certainly the question mark, but this horse has been decently forwardly placed in turf routes and run okay. Against technically better, 25,000, but a lot of times the bottom on turf is higher than the bottom. So you know what I'm saying? But I thought the 5 made a little sense. I thought the 6 was 5 to two made a little sense, and I thought the 8 who's two to one makes a little sense. The 8th zero for 11, the eight's been running primarily against maiden specialty types in Indiana, Ellis ran for made in 40 at Churchill, didn't run great ran forth, beaten a dozen lakes, dropped to 30 at turfway here and ran 56 and a half. And that was after kind of a bad start. So I'm intrigued by the fact that the horse did seem to move up a little bit on the synthetic. Now this horse should run against made special to turf way last spring and got beat pretty bad last winter. It had a decent result beat four and a half. And again, the difference between made and special way to turf away and this made in 15, I think is pretty severe. So the more I looked at it, the more I thought, well, maybe the 8 is just a single here because I was having a real I mean, I thought you could kind of make case for the 7 is a bit of a long shot. This is not a race I wanted to spread and I guess because some of the 20 to ones I thought were really bad. I didn't like the two at all who's four to one. I think a third choice. But I don't want to be going three 5, 6 and 8, even though the carryover does wash away a lot of the takeout and you can kind of get away with a bad leg or two in the hopes of trying to hit it. But it kind of depends also on on what I like down the road as far as how it would maybe position this ticket. If I have a few stronger opinions down the way, then I'm a little more at ease with, you know, going three or four deep here with somewhat logicals and maybe even 5 deep and throwing in the 7th of the 7th O for 23 and I just never want to be party and with horses like that. It's just the horse is even in for the bottom end of the claiming price in for the 10,000 instead of 5000. But I guess my point was talking about this race was I just thought this was the one I had the least opinion in. I don't see it as a big single race for a lot of people. One of the things we talked with pylons about a while back was, you know, that idea of sequencing and one of the things he talked about is so often people, you know, they start wider because they want to be alive, and they end up narrower, almost just because they run out of chips, right? You already got 40 combinations in your $20 is your limit, so you're optional last is single, and I think that there's kind of one of those singles in the 5th leg here. The 6 horse in the 5th leg, I think looks like he'll be a single and a lot of people, but the ten looks kind of good and there's some first. It's a little bit tricky. And so what I was getting at was, I think the 5th race is a race where a lot of people are going to have to go narrow because they're out of bullets. But it's not necessarily to me it necessarily a narrow race. And so my inclination to maybe single the 8 who, like I said, I just don't love, but I think from a class standpoint, has a pretty big advantage this horse doesn't have a lot of early speed, but he's shown speed or at least before they placed a couple times and those were both of his better efforts, or her better efforts I should say. So the 6 is definitely lightly erased has been running against way, way tougher competition, but going for pretty low percentage connections and I almost think is going to get bet quite a bit and is maybe just not the horse to be back at. Now this horse ran at turfway in a maiden specialty last time and finished toward the back, but was kind of in the mix at least for the first half of the race. It's just a tricky race. I did not like anything about this race. I thought the 5 could move forward. I thought the three had some speed. So like I said, if anything, the more I think about it, the 6s maybe just a toss, even if I do elect a spread a little bit in this race and maybe I just go three 5 and 8 or maybe throw in the 7 who's a big price, but again, there's no for 23 horse..

"Scene behind it? It would look much more realistic. So I guess I understand there are plenty of applications you'd also have Zoom calls. This is way and so forth. But let's talk about the thing that you looked at. You said it looked pretty good. Is it solid? Because princess Leia was kind of like ghost. And you could sort of see through her. Yeah. Not this. This is solid. I was looking at this chameleon. It's a computer generated chameleon. And I was looking at it and there were plants behind it, completely occluded, completely blocked. And as you move the background, you had perspective the background shifted differently in the foreground. So you said an interesting thing, computer generated. Can you do this with video or do you have to you can, but it requires a volumetric dataset. A lot of points. A lot of points you could do it if you had a bunch of cameras, for example, around what you were filming. Like bullet time with the matrix. Okay. Exactly. You could do it that way. But for now, the technology is mostly using volumetric data from things like unity or unreal. So yeah, digitally created stuff. So we're not going to see it on a Zoom call because you'd need a special camera to do it to resume call. The reason I mentioned that is because Google supposedly has something similar for video conferencing. This is very different though it sounds like. But it works. It works. It works really well. In fact, they said, go, go, go try to touch the chameleon, and so I did. And of course, my hand passed right through it. Dig this, they gave me a magnifying glass, and I could look at the chameleon through the magnifying glass. And it worked as if the chameleon were a real thing. And what you mean? Yes, yes. That's weird. Yeah. Okay, that kind of breaks my brain a little bit..

Okay, number two, seek beauty. In your partner, especially the contrast. So all the differences, right? So as we get into a relationship and we find out that our partner is actually her own person and we have differences. And we have to accept that, but not only accept but to embrace, because a lot of people, they don't accept it and they see that as, oh, okay, well, maybe we're not meant to be. Because we don't share the same humor or taste in food or movies or whatever, right? Instead, if you could seek beauty in the differences in how your partner is and see them is almost like this is going to sound weird. But creatures. There's a scene in Star Wars Star Wars that says real quick. I know I don't want to drag this out too long. There's a scene in Star Wars where they go I think it's Luke Skywalker and princess Leia and see through C-3PO and R two D to whatever. They go into this bar in the desert. And this is where they meet Jabba the hut. And in that bar, every person, or everything, every creature is different, right? You have a robot, Bobo fat, you have job of the hut. This big giant slob, then you have humans there, then you have creatures with one eyes, creatures, with three eyes, and all the different creatures, right? You have to see your partner as her own creature, meaning her own story, her own wiring, you know? It's like she's a different species than you. And instead of trying to change that accept that, you know, that it's okay and you have to appreciate and admire this beautiful creature. Number three, see your partner through a new lens.

"That you can look at your download speeds and see if you do have high jitter you also wanna look at something called buffer bloat. I think this is a little overstated but it is a problem on some routers where the the router has believe it or not too much memory and this can cause a problem as well. I generally recommend dsl reports Bandwidth test although lately there are a lot of Additional good could speed test but try start with the dsl reports test. It does tell you things like jitter latency and buffer bloat. So you can see if that's an issue. Buffalo is a router issue. Jitter is an issue really usually with the carrier. You know the people providing your internet dot coming in cleanly And then i would also look at that fire tv. Stick honestly This every time. I hear these. Hdmi sticks. I know they're cheap. they're convenient. There's not a separate box you just plug into the tv. But boy that's That's kind of a mess. It's kind of a recipe for disaster. So those are all things that look at it now that you understand the what's what that buffering means. You can kind of look around to see. It's not it's not. The pure internet speed is not the only factor the hardware. That's playing it. Back is a factor. You'll see this sometimes even on a computer if the computer gets bogged down to computers doing other things for instance you'll see a lot of buffering that's not that the internet speeds to slow is the computer itself can't keep up so starts eating the buffer Actually you know. We should start collecting Speed tests. Because there's some new. And i think very good speed tests out there but i still i. You know generally use the tested. Dsl reports dot com. I think google's got a speed test now as well. And it's you know google these guys. These engineers are pretty geeky. So i think google if you just google speed test you can run. There's through 'em lab their own internet speed test. But i don't see it giving a lot of additional information like jitter. You really wanna look at jitter. That should be how high she giambi lowers. Better twenty thirty not more than that. Probably you don't want a lot of variation that's just a sign of a problem with the connection really and if there is a lot of jitter com good luck maybe maybe you can call your net service provider and say i got a lot of jitter. What their reaction will be. Might you got a lot of what honestly if you had. If you put me on the spot said what's the w- fixed. What should i fix. First thing i would do is look at the fire tv. Stick get an external box. Those usually are bigger. You with a fan. I think a lot of these. Tv devices don't have fans because they wanted to be very very quiet. But that means they overheat they get hot. Feel the When you're watching a four k. stream and it starts to buffer score around back your tv and touch the fire stick. See how hot it is. It's gonna be on fire. It's gonna to be really really hot early Ones versions. These sticks crashed all the time because they would just overheat. So it's kind of a thing. That's probably what i would look at eight. Ask leia speed.

Dressed: The History of Fashion
Historical Costuming with Dr. Christine Millar of Sewstine
"Climb christine. I go on the internet as so steam. And i am a lot of things really. I am historical costumer who focuses on digital embroidery and extremely detailed trim. But i'm also a physician by trade. So i do work in a hospitals as anesthesiologist through this pandemic and i also do a god. I also have a youtube channel. Where i talk about how to create these things and really. I also focused on instagram. And so i just wanna take a moment and again. Thank you for being here. Because i do not know how you do all these things. You're also a mother of an adorable. I think he's too now toddler so i just want to thank you for taking the time to be here especially with everything you have going on. Oh my god. I can't believe. I forgot to mention the family. Yes mother and game. So i just want to kind of learn a little bit more about you. Do you have an earliest memory of clothing. That might have stuck with you over the years. Did you first realize the transformative power of clothing. I love to ask people this question. Oh my okay. So i was born in korea and i came to the united states when i was three and a half so i have a lot of memories of sitting in korea watching american disney movies like the little mermaid as well as There's an anime cult candy candy. I don't know if you've ever heard of it. But it's basically a yellow haired american girl who wears fluffy roughly dresses all over the place. And i was so obsessed with pink ruffled gowns especially after areas pink dress in little mermaid that my aunt actually got me a nine petty bridesmaid dress for like a little four year old girl and i was so big on me and i remember wearing it for the first time and it was the most happy moment of my childhood and from there on i think i just became obsessed with drawing in trying to capture addresses and the older i got i the more i realized what i really wanted to do was not just draw these dresses but actually had to wear these dresses. Yeah and i'd love to hear a little bit more about that. Because i think everyone probably has their own unique origin story about how they came to historical costuming. How did it all start for you. I believe you kind of started in caused play to if i'm not incorrect. That's exactly it. I initially started in. 'cause play. I noticed i was doing a lot of costuming for some of my favorite power. Females like the tana princess leia. you know Firefly characters and that's where i started end but the real one that i really want to make was katrina from sleepy hollow particularly that black and white striped dress that she works for about fifteen seconds in the end. I initially made it in college end to turn out right but you know i loved it enough that it. I just realized that my favorite movie costumes were all historically based and once. I realized that it was really easy to just kind of focus on that i kind of went. The steam punk route and did a lot of eighties bustle dresses. One of which. I got into the new york times style section when i was in college and that gave me the like the positive energy boost i needed to religious focus all my energies into historical. And that's not to say. I still don't do 'cause play in fact i'm working on a cost play right now for another power female a sister of battle for more than forty k which seems like a completely turnaround but to me. It's just you know more of the same like you know detailed female power stuff and i'm not cost player or historical costumer of but i come from a career as a costume supervisor in a costume designer i started in theater and then i got into film and tv but i have this just incredible appreciation and fascination with these communities both the 'cause play community and historical costuming community. They're not necessarily mutually exclusive as you attest to you. Know they are really quite intermingled. A lot of the times. Even though. I don't participate in these communities. I really really anxious. I just think it's so cool do so for those who may not know. Can you please tell us a little bit more about this worldwide historical costume community and cause play community and maybe just kind of start by defining those things. 'cause i don't think everyone may know the difference. That's a really good point. So i say cost play his costumer like everybody knows but so cost player. Is someone who makes costumes for movies. Tv shows games sort of like established Ip already out there. So you know someone who's a cost player making a princess leia costume versus on historical customer may take a museum piece or a picture from say like an old fashioned panel and try to recreate those so it's different goals so the cost player tends to try to make things as screen accurate as possible or take their own spin on a two degree while the historical customer is all about trying to get things to look historically accurate or correct the historical time period. But these are vague goals. You know everybody has their own specific goals when it comes to costuming which is really one of the most delicious parts of it. Yeah and i think just seeing how many all these people all around the world who have been introduced to through instagram. That's how i became familiar with you and a lot of your peers was just through instagram. And the para social media but admits so many wonderful people and so many people who have incredibly different approaches to as you mentioned these same historical or cause play approaches so just so cool so you yourself have built this incredible online presence for yourself you instagram and youtube as you mentioned at so steen is your handle. And you're really just showing all of these various historical dress projects that you've created at your in home studio which is just incredible. I love you can tell us a little bit about your selection process. What is your inspiration between starting these different projects so omen inspiration from everywhere and think. There's always about fifteen different projects night years going through my head at any point in time so a lot of times. What'll happen is i will learn something about or i will be able to actually procure a certain fabric. So for instance right now. I'm working on the dressed. That marie antoinette whereas in the two thousand and six the couple of film marie-antoinette in the chapel or the church which has the strawberries on it. This particular fabric is woven in italy. It's based off of seventeen eighties. Waistcoat in a museum collection. Somewhere in this particular fabric was actually used in about three different films including the original dangerous liaisons movie and it is so hard to get if you can even buy it. It usually runs about three hundred euros a meter so for me. That is like you know. I might be a doctor but i can't. I can't spend that much right on top of it. It wasn't even like procurable. Until very recently i was able to actually buy it because Not the original. But some other company on oetzi started making a knockoff of it. And i don't know how legal his is but on the other hand. It's based off of original waistcoat. And the you know the trademark on run out like two hundred fifty years ago so the fact is you know this. Other companies started offering. It was very similar. The colors are almost identical slightly. Different here and there but it was so close and the fact that they were able to offer it at a significant discount from the original price meant that it went from being pipedream in the back of my head to something. I could actually do now so a lot of times. It'll be that i finally find. The fabric actually comes available or in the case of the strawberry dress which i turn into which is strawberry regency dress. I always want to make address. But i really didn't like the roses on the original inventory. Not because i dislike roses. Or i think it's ugly. I've just digitized so many roses but then suddenly the strawberry gus went. I like i can just turn those roses and strawberries. And no one's gonna care or mind. So i was able to do that as well. So it's all about what becomes available to.
The Faithful Fangirl
"leia" Discussed on The Faithful Fangirl
"I ordered to be resurrected nuns when things about storytelling is seeing the resurrection and the end of the cycle and campbell's model a lot of times in movies. We only go halfway around the model. We never see the rebuilding in that. Were is in myth. When they had more of a book see the hero leave and return and then re absorb into the real world. And we haven't seen the jedi order re turn to the new world me so this is where i think fabric felonious really clever because they know that the natural part of the cycle is to return to the app of so lou casta finishes are casta descend to the wizard of the order anne and in the timeframe that we have because we see the start of that cycle again in the sequel trilogy. Yes interesting. I had that thought when i was like we know. He can't go with luke because we know what happens. Luke's jet i like. Yeah i don't think right now. At this point you could take the mandalorian encapsulated it and it would be free. It's rebels is very what i'd say. Korea reboot proof. And i think the mandalorian will be too. I don't think it's going to I don't think it's going to look at the sequel trilogy for anything when people say oh this may be showing how smoke or whatever it's not it's just it's just going on stuff that was in the expanding universe. Think it's gonna to be really encapsulated so no matter what happens with star wars because people are like oh it can never be. It's going to be single time. It wasn't a single time line win. The lower started because they were already writing over stuff. That was a single time on. So it's it's such a silly notion that i don't know why it's so embedded in our can fan culture that we're not gonna break free. We've seen superman in different duration. See batman in different iterations. We've seen spiderman in different iterations. They're all great and so we shouldn't be afraid of different iterations of this myth yet. That's an excellent point because we see this all the time of superheroes but so much like a pushback when it comes to star wars kind of the way they sold it to people. But i mean if you look at marvel they respect to their core lower and you can still do that and i think the worst thing you do is say you're locked into this. You can't gail simone famous comic writer. A second about shadow princess leia story. She just told the story on twitter the other day and it was like amazing princess leia story and they were like oh no. You can't do that story because of this canon and this lower in lay wouldn't be there and i'm thinking we missed out on this like crazy good story but they're starting to do that with id w comic swear they don't it's not cannon necessarily they might it might just. It's just a story. It's a cool story and it might not be in the time line and i think as you get more people comfortable with it. They'll be like okay. Well and i feel like i just the subtitles from the the spin offs of a star wars story. Yeah and they fit them into the time. But if it's just that this is a star wars story now maybe we can just move this out of the time line and say like almost like kind of a what s but even without even putting them one if just the exact i like. I like the direction. I love where you're reading your headed..

And she is the former president and CEO of the renowned theater design firm sacks Morgan studio and you can find out more about her and the fact that she's working on these days at theatrical intelligence.com while and thank you so much for joining us today. It is a pleasure to talk with you and I'm been looking forward to this ever since way just connected. You know that there's just so much we could talk about because of this a project that is such a huge part of American. Well, I guess you could say even Global culture. I mean this thing is reach around the world. And so the original radio adaptation was first broadcast in 1981 and back. In those days you were doing stage acting at the time. Is that correct? That's correct. Yes. I played the leading role on Broadway in Dracula APA Frank langella and did that for over a year and I loved working in the you know, our country's resident Theatres because they're so varied in their approaches to producing plays and then also the theaters themselves very, you know, the little key we do lunch and then they're huge ones and I loved the surprising aspect of of working in different places. Yeah, like your locally we have the Orpheum Theater downtown Phoenix and that is just an absolutely beautiful beautiful theater. Yeah. Yeah. I've been in there. Yes, beautiful never worked there, but yep. Lovely. Yeah. Well, so how did you first hear about the Star Wars project? Well, it was one of those things where I just got a call from my agent and he said that if I was free I was being asked to do a radio adaptation of storm. I said what that is very strange and I guess I had met John Madden once brilliant brilliant director and said he must have been you know on a tight line or something like that, but it just sort of suddenly happened and a couple of days after getting the call. We we started it and it was just a just horrific great son Mark Hamill from the original film was in it then Terry King did dead. How long is solo and Carrie was terrific in that? So it was this something out of the norm for you to get asked to audition for a radio project or or what was that audition process? Like well, there was no addition. I just got called by my agent and they asked me to do it. I guess they must have been kind of dealing with a last-minute schedule or something. But I was asked I could do it and I did it was wonderful. It was a real Joy. Wow. Yeah, just call up and say hey we've got this roll for you. Come do it. Yes, exactly. That's all too rare in the theater and film business. So have you done any other radio projects before this month? Do you know what I I don't think I have I've done radio things but mostly it has to do with interviews and commercials for I was doing but it was a complete surprise and and of wonderful one, huh? That's that's amazing. So the so the film was released in 77 and the radio drama 81. Did you ever think that Star Wars would be such a huge cultural phenomenon as it is today, you know on one level I was I was completely surprised. It's just really the the global phenomenon is something that rarely happens in the world and on another level. It makes perfect sense. It just wage has that you know, the magic. Yeah that that just draws people in and what did you like to work on home? Sure,

The rise of Poland's far right has important lessons for Americans
"Election of Donald J. Trump. We in the United States have become accustomed to a degree of fabulous. Um I've done more for black Americans than anybody. With the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, the president, self aggrandizement provides the framework for his alternate reality. We have one of the lowest mortality rate way had 900 Deaths in a single day. You have the numbers place because I heard we had the best mortality number one low mortality, right? We are being given something I can't recall in my lifetime, a choice of realities. One that is mostly regarded as evidence based and one that you might call faith based that faith being in Mr Trump In either case, you have a sizable cohort to back you up. Truth has been displaced in many quarters by rage and fear. Over the past four months, we've had many opportunities to observe the impact of paranoia. When deployed by a fantasist in the White House in Arizona Man died after taking Clara Quien, his wife said that they heard about it from Trump's briefings. Are you gonna allow the government to tell you you have to wear a mask? Some believe these mask orders go against their freedoms will protect. All right, I will know asked me and I will not pay for antibiotics. Conspiracies of Sena numbers swell on Facebook and doctors warn, if left unchecked, they could undermine an effective vaccine. The death toll from the Corona virus pandemic has surpassed 150,000 in the United States. That's the highest number of fatalities in any nation by far. And accounts for nearly 1/4 of the recorded global. Told immediately after the 2016 election, I spoke with New York ER writer Masha Gessen, who, after having lived long under Vladimir Putin had some advice for anxious Americans trying to navigate the so called new normal. She explained that for the would be authoritarian, the lying is the point that the ability to create a reality flagrantly staring down conspicuous fact. Is a crucial component of building and sustaining power. And last fall boxes, David Roberts noted bluntly, where such a strategy left unchecked, could lead this sort of cultish, increasingly authoritarian movement takes over the country. In Russia and Turkey and Poland. Right's a disturbingly longer and longer list. We see countries that we thought were democracies devolve into this. In the U. S. So much has happened in the last few years that we thought would never happen. I think we should really loosen up our imaginations as to what can happen when a movement that is convinced that everything it knows and loves is in danger of falling apart movements that's thinking like that unconnected anymore to fax or reality. And got its hands on the power of the federal government is the basic recipe for democracy is falling apart. And so last fall on, the media producer Leia Feder reported on one of those places Poland, a young democracy teetering on unstable ground and where it's far right Nationalist government is intent on rewriting the nation's painful history. For almost a decade, Poland has been in the grip of a conspiracy theory what really happened when a plane crashed in a forest in western Russia, killing Poland's president and dozens of other government officials. The plane had been on route to commemorate another Polish tragedy, a massacre that had occurred in the very same location in 1940. 1973 documentary explored the mystery While the German army is advancing from the West, the Soviets crossed Poland's eastern front court in a method of Polish army collapsed, Um, surrendered. The victors, divided the country down the middle and imprisoned every soldier they captured. Russia took a 215,000 Poland officer Corps were never seen alive again. Many. What die near Smolensk, in a forest called catching after decades of opacity and suspicion on investigation in the early nineties, confirmed finally, that it was not Hitler. But Stalin, who had ordered the massacre. And so when, on April 10th 2010 a delegation of 96 Polish politicians and officials traveled from Warsaw to Smolensk. It was in service of remembrance and reconciliation. But what happened instead compounded the national pain. Poland's prime minister burst into tears when he heard the news today that his country's president was killed in a plane crash pilot tried to land in a thick fog at least twice missing the runway. And ignoring the control tower's direction to divert to another city. Not just losing the president of that country. The first lady, the ahead of the army chief of staff, the National Security Office head deputy Parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister. It was a devastating national tragedy. What's more, the symbolic layering was undeniable. Ah, longstanding tragedy finally solved and a new one appears in its place. And yet, in the immediate moments and days after the crash, there was a kind of common shock. An Applebaum is a journalist and academic beast in Warsaw At the time of the 2010 crash, her husband was minister of foreign affairs in the Polish government, and there was pretty straightforward reporting. About what had happened. What was immediately clear There were people on the ground who saw the crash. So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign. So there were cameras there which he knew, and he was very anxious to go under pressure, the pilots tried to make the landing. Instead, they hit a tree, killing all 96 people on board. The president's twin brother, the head of the nationalist right political party in Poland, same parties, the president He didn't like this story. It made the president look bad, more to the point. This is a terrible crash very near to a place where a Nurlita generation of poles were murdered by the Soviet state. Because of that eeriness. People immediately began to speculate that there was actually a different, deeper story that perhaps the Russians caused the crash. Perhaps there was a bomb on the plane. And conspiracy theories began to proliferate online. The president's brother, Nijinsky began openly alluding to them. Kaczynskis Law and Justice Party made unraveling the Smolensk conspiracy. It's key campaign promise once you had bought into their idea that there is a secret conspiracy, possibly involving the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. Possibly involving the Russians, and that lots of people high up in the state were implicated in some great big secret plot to kill the president. If you believe that Then you can believe a lot of other things. The point was to get people to believe in a kind of alternative reality to doubt institutions to doubt that the government was telling them the truth, and that was absolutely an attempt to help win an election, But it did more than carve out a new electorate. It created new divides in Polish society. Where one's Polish politics were split between Communists and anti communists around economic policy. Now it was over a vision of history. It was how you see Poland's place in the world. And whether you think secret dark forces air trying to undermine your country and whether you know you need to elect a government of Patriots in order to make sure that doesn't happen. Where you fell on that dividing line affected how you would vote and how you would understand politics for the next several years, And so when line justice one in 2015 it spawned a new kind of power a power based on the willingness to embrace the myth. They fired large numbers of Polish civil servants. Polish members of the foreign service. All kinds of people who work for the government also leaders and board members of state companies and they replaced all of them with people whom they were sure we're loyal. And one element of the loyalty test was belief in this Molinski myth.

Dishing Up Nutrition
Immune Support During a Health Crisis
"Today I personally want to share my thoughts and recommendations on how you can support your immune system during our current has crisis you know as a certified nutrition specialist licensed in the state of Minnesota since one thousand nine hundred ninety six. So I've been around for a long time absolutely so I am one of those people that fall into that category that I have to be careful with my immune system right now absolutely so that is one of the reasons that we put this podcast together special for people who have these issues so we're GonNa make recommendations and of course we're going to focus and making good food choices that will support your immune system because we are nutritious dieticians and that's where our thoughts go first food. I like you always say I will also spend some time. We will also spend some time during this podcast recommending key immune supporting supplements now now that they're not going to be real fancy ones. They're just going to be something that you can do so joining me today as our co host is Leah. Klein shot. John. Ooh That's the hardest part of this show was registered and licensed station and she has been working individually with clients for the last three years. But I think it's going on for Ya. I don't do the math really well. I talk food. I don't talk math. Okay sounds good. Yeah welcome Leia Dr. It's good to be here with you today. And we know the fears about Corona viruses. We have had calls. We have had e-mails numerous calls and emails from clients and from people who do the checking online and they really want to know what they should do for themselves for their family members for the people around them particularly to boost their immune system. What can they do to protect themselves? Their people are really scared. These aren't So we wanted to pull the show together today to just provide some of our clinical knowledge In this podcast about we we believe people will find useful from a food perspective and perhaps from a supplement perspective as well. Unfortunately we know there's no magic pill that's going to boost your immune system overnight and make you completely immune to all of this but the next best thing that we can do is talk about food. I which is of real food diet which includes real meat. It includes real vegetables and real natural. Fats that these types of things really supply as many nutrients as possible. They give you the biggest bang for your buck in terms of nutrients than those nutrients help you maximize your health. You know given the fact that nutritional weight and wellness company is a company specializing in nutrition education. You know our staff of nutritionists dietitians nutrition. Educators always recommend just like you said real food and Food I and we really recommend avoiding all processed. Foods rashly right now. So what do we mean when we say real food to me? That means the food side. I grew up eating for protein. We ate eggs from the farm eggs. We chicken beef pork. Some fish and the interesting thing is they were all raised on that farm without chemicals without antibiotics any of those things as close to local as you can get so of course. We recommend buying grass fed meat. That's free of antibiotic residue for the Best Immune support because we're thinking immune support. We also recommend eating two to four ounces of animal protein at least four times a day. Let's share some ideas of how people can put animal protein into their diet so that they have a good immune function right. Well let's talk about why. Why are these meets the fish good for us? Oh that's a good idea. Let's give them a while. We're we'll give them both. We'll give them the why and the what delicate everything so meet whether it is the beef pork chicken the Turkey the lamb. The fish seafood. Whatever it may be it really is a key factor for immune system because meat is rich in a couple of different nutrients Let's focus on vitamin B. Six being one of them be six is really important for the formation of healthy white and red blood cells and especially when we talk about the immune system. We really are talking about those white blood cells. So the interesting thing is that animal protein besides the b-vitamins where those vitamins again Leah. Which wants to the supply for people? Yeah so vitamin B. Six one of them and vitamin B twelve is another one. B Twelve is really important for strengthening up that immune system so the category of the bees seems to be really important and they all come from animal protein so also animal protein contain some really key minerals that support our men function. I don't think people realize that minerals really support them. Uniform so animal protein is an excellent source of iron which is critical for good. Immune system. Interesting isn't eight. Animal Protein is a great source of zinc. Which is also key for good immune function I think most clients are most people are keyed into the zinc piece. But maybe not the iron quite as much exactly you know. I believe the recommendations for all of us to stay home means there will be a lot more cooking going on. I hope so. So maybe we'll be actually able to get more and more people cooking these days. Yeah so a great time to experiment. So what would you suggest Leah for some ideas for people to make it? I mean we have to start out with something. That's simple something that's simple accessible doesn't require a hundred different ingredients right right so. I think about some of the recipes that we have on our website which is weight and wellness dot com. I mean these are great. We have breakfast. We have lunch recipes. You have dinner recipe snack. GonNa up and down. We have a hole puncher recipes. And you know when we put the rest of our cookbook together weight and wellness cookbook and any of our recipes. We really try to make them simple with fewer ingredients so they're not overwhelming and they still taste amazing thing so a couple that I really personally love. One of those are sloppy joe recipe so especially thinking about families out there now. If you have kids that are staying home and we need to think of extra lunch ideas and things like that. The sloppy Joe Recipe is really quick so couple pounds of ground beef onion celery carrots and then kind of a tomato based sauce in there comes together so easily and it makes lots. You have leftovers. Then which is wonderful and kids love it and kids really love it. My grandchildren love that. Yeah I feed that to my son. Who's eighteen months old too? And he's gobbles it up as well So I love our sloppy Joe Recipe but also our Bison Burger recipe is a nice and simple. And even if you're even if you're not making your own patties per se you can buy regular bison beef or Bison burgers or regular beef burgers chicken patties Turkey patties. Any of those would fit that bill for getting in those B vitamins and contributing to that real protein. So if you're thinking in terms of what would you add then if you're not just going to serve some sloppy Joe or some Burger? What what else would you had with that to make a full meal right. So if we're trying to stay away stay from some of the process side dishes or like say a bun something like a sweet potato would work really well and you can even shape the potato into a bond type forums. You could even sandwich that patty between two slices of sweet potatoes interesting. When you say sweet potatoes. The first thing I think of I always think nutrients Beta carotene. Yes a very good antioxidant. Yes absolutely and maybe on that sweet potato. You're adding some of that good fat in there so you get some flavor into it as well so that could be butter. That could be coconut oil. That could be. It could be any number of different fats so the other thing. That animal protein does it. Supports me no acids needed to make our neurotransmitters? Are we talking about this because so many people right now are under so much stress? You're under stress. You start to use up your neurotransmitters and two of the more familiar neurotransmitters that we use. Kinda daily handle stress and particularly right now. One of them is dopamine and the other is Serotonin. So here's how what happens. Meet breaks down into two key amino acids l tire Zane and L Tryptophan and tyrosine the building blocks for making dopamine dopamine makes you feel good gives you energy yeah. I certainly had exists morning and making good dopamine right now started when you start your day off like that. It sets you up for a better kind of more energetic day. Yes in L. Tryptophan is the building blocks for Serotonin. I think there's some misconceptions that a lot of people have is. They have no idea that they can make their own. Serotonin they think they have to get it from a pill of some kind. And that's not really a good source. So what is Serotonin do? We need it right now. A lot of it right now because everyone is stressed and so that helps keep us calm. Managers are stress and anxiety and again. It's real critical at this time. So because stress lowers your immune system so eating a couple of eggs for breakfast and a beef. Patty for lunch. A salmon steak for dinner support your immune system in support your

"Five it is still nearly two months away but online ticket sales for the final Star Wars movie are hot WBZ has been Parker spoke with ABC entertainment correspondent Jason Nathanson about the hype so the final trailer is out for the final movie in the Star Wars saga and jay-z's suit and it looks like it's gonna be a hit because the pre sale tickets are hitting the internet now already set his records yeah this is the first indication that we knew this was going to be big because like you said this is the final film in the nine episode Star Wars triple trilogy the nine all Gee I don't know exactly what the the toward the terminology is for that but it's the one that started in nineteen seventy seven with the first three films with rocky films for five and six then you had the prequels which were one two and three and now for the past few years we've got seven and eight this will be the ninth film in the final film in the sky Walker saga so they're calling it and so we know it's going to be bad it is the patient's hot people want to see this film so this was the third trailer that dropped for it and never do we ever talk about third trailers I mean sometimes we talk about first trailers when they come out because people want to get their first look at the film but the third trailer problems seem to trail is already we already know some stuff so the fact that we've been talking about a third trailer means that day also it was time to well the the dropping of the pre sale tickets the online presale tickets the first chance for those really Die Hard fans to get those tickets and Adam tickets one of the big online retailers said in the first hour of presale tickets it was the biggest thing that they've ever seen by far bigger than the vendors and game which was the previous champ by forty five percent and if you remember Avengers and game this year set the record for the highest grossing movie of all time worldwide I don't know that that's going to be the case here but it's our first indication of what might be and it's almost two months away before the movie even hits theaters on on December the twentieth so clearly there's a lot of excitement after seeing the trailers I am and I know the people like to speculate about what's going to happen in a movie what is the buzz on the street about what's going to happen here or do we just I know isn't that close to the vest I mean if it is a little bit I if you if you're a huge Star Wars fan you already know you've been parsing through this thing you know and then freeze framing on every second so you you've been really dismantling it and that's all over the internet articles about did you see what happened at that that minute one thirty two and what happened there but some of the big takeaways are a lot of princess Leia Carrie Fisher who course died a couple years ago and she had filmed a bunch of stuff for the first film and for the second film and so they're using some of the footage that they weren't able to use the first time around to put her it's not and they have we knew that she was going to be there that wasn't a surprise but they give her some very poignant lines in some poignant looks in some poignant hugs and one of the themes that has a lot of people kind of sad is there's a line there C. three PO the robot is looking at all of it is assembled friends and he says taking one last look at my friends so there's that are they getting killed C. three PO and Kenny killer robot that is what happened there a lot of questions WBZ's Ben Parker speaking with ABC's Jason

New "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" trailer released
"We are here to talk about Social Media News and and the first thing we're going to talk about is star wars because the trailer was on tonight during the halftime show of the Monday night football game to which I said to Monday night football games normally have a halftime show is not more of a super bowl thing and my husband who's a football fan said he didn't think it normal we happened but ESPN is owned by Disney who also now owned star wars so they have you know they they have the means to play the new star wars trailer as part of the halftime show which may or may not be a normal part of Monday night football it doesn't matter if it is or not that's when it was and we happen to be watching the game let me rephrase my husband happened to be watching the game I happen to be reading a book that's that's often how we watch football together uh together I glanced up every once in a while and we we know we have conversations I read a book or snuggle with puppies or whatever it happens to be so the new trailer the rise star wars the rise of skywalker premiered tonight and of course it is now trending on Social Media so there's a lot of scenes of ray running running and jumping into generally being the athletic bad ass that she tends to be you know it it tells you both a lot and not much at all gives you just enough to speculate of course because that is what a good trailer does and of course people are speculating the trailer is two minutes and thirty eight seconds long so of course there's plenty to speculate about and of course fans are already commenting on social media creating youtube videos et CETERA and there's already than articles parsing the social media news and the the all of these all the speculation this article is from movie Web Dot COM and they say they have I know they don't say that that was my word they say we have compiled some of the best still images to make section process that much easier for everybody Some fans got an early start this afternoon when the studio released a teaser trailer which featured the Ice Planet of Jimmy and possibly the ghost chip from the Star Wars rebels animated series so Lucasville announced over the weekend that the final rise of skywalker trailer was going to drop during tonight's Monday night football game which follows the promotional campaign for the previous in this stall moment of latest trilogy j.j Abrams has spoken about his fear of putting endings two things but he seems pretty confident that what he pulled off here and the rise of Skywalker The new trailer teases something star wars fans are going to be talking about for months couple of months at least because it comes out on December twentieth so we have we have just under two months to speculate before we can go see it the rise of Walker footage released so far has had a darker tone to it which seems forboding return of Emperor Palestine who get to hear once again and his presence is felt all over this preview. There's teasers of the dark side taking over but we always but we know that George Lucas always intended on bringing balance to the story so we will more than likely end up seeing that representative as well even though he with the latest trailer and footage we still have no idea what J.j Abrams and Chris Stereo have really cooked up for us that does not stop us from speculating things that I saw on social media people already combining Kylo and raise name like a rail oh I think I saw some referred to him Kylo refer Dumas's Bennett depending on how you think of him but there's all sorts of speculation on what Ben and Kylo and Ray are going to be up to the palpitation also trending of course Hashtag Palestine people are having a field day speculating my favorite my favorite tweets were those talking about Ray Ray low rain kylo being on some kind of grand scavenger hunt to find the Hor- cruxes of the emperor because that just combines all of my dorky passions of both Star Wars and star wars and Harry Potter. I can't help it I'm a Dork Internet skype the let me start that over in addition to the final trailer trailer hitting the Internet the rise of skywalker tickets are early on sale well have you ever I know people do it but I have never bought a ticket a movie to two months out I remember when they re released the star I trilogy the original Star Wars Trilogy I was in college and I waited long lines for those but I've never bought a ticket that far out it'll be interesting so well we are about to see the Skywalker saga come to an end that doesn't mean star wars is coming to an end because there's a million different storylines they can pursue it's been forty two years I sense George Lucas introduced the world to the story to these characters wow I mean star wars has been around for four decades which I know because it's been around my whole life but now it's time though to close the book on nine installed events and leave room for new stories to told well it's bittersweet this article says we still have we at least have the rise of Skywalker to look forward to with all of its ties to the past and the future I'm just wondering really is it going to tie things up is it not going you know how satisfied am I going to be about this supposedly conclusion to nine movie story arc and nine movies that are some are better than others let's just put it out there of course some are better than others it's it's going to be that so the the trailer features kind of gives you glimpses of everyone C. Three Po not sure what's going on with C. Three Po little concerned about him from the trailer You Get a brief glimpse of R two D two's chew he's in there a very brief glimpse of Princess Leia hugging ray brief glimpse of Landau flying possibly the Millennium Falcon Falcon. I don't know I didn't pay enough attention but you know and then all the new characters of course ray and Kylo in Poland people whose names I'm not thinking of off the top ahead is clearly I am not that big of a fan no I am a fan I just don't always I just don't have names off the top of my head there's Dumb you get a PLO and podium Ron and Oh what is the guy's name the African American man can't think of his name that's so terrible but that's just weird that that is that it should be Lucan lay back there maybe three Po it it's like weird collisions of my life together and so I don't know what's going on with three P. Oh I don't know what's going on there's lots and lots of drama for me the the trailer was fine it's the music that gets me they do that they do that on purpose of course but the music kind of amps me up less the story Alana law I'm excited about it but it's the music like yes this is this is my childhood this is coming and I get to see it at Christmas time
KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown
Marvel's Kevin Feige to visit a galaxy far, far away
"I'm Kim Masters and this is Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter in Mount. I I I don't want. It's hard to be modest. I had a big story. I'm just going to say it about star wars and it's the irony is I'm hardly an expert what about star wars or the Marvel Universe but even with my lack of expertise. I know enough to know that when marble President Kevin Fi sticks his nose into the star the worst tent. It's a big deal yeah. This was a big deal this week and it's basically the acknowledgement by Disney that the marvel all movies have been an unprecedented success in throughout movie history. I mean twenty three hits in a row no producers ever done that and they are giving a star wars movie to Kevin Fi who runs marvel and I say giving he's going to produce a star wars movie now they're saying he's going to produce a star wars movie with Kathy Kennedy who runs Lucasfilm but if you read between the lines here this is a an acknowledgment that all is not necessarily well in the the Star Wars Universe and they are bringing in someone who has a track record of being able to deliver yeah obviously Kevin Foggy is a big star wars fan. That wouldn't be a surprise to anybody. Who Do you know is has anything to do with the Superhero world that he would love Star Wars and and he has had if they have had big problems in the production of their her films. They've managed to keep it pretty quiet. Somehow make things work whereas with star wars there's just been difficulty and I think part of it is can't be Kennedy's ambition and she you know she wanted to. I think I'm just guessing. She's number told me this she wanted to kind of do a version of what warner sit down with Harry Potter bringing an interesting directors like Cuaron to do the film's but but then it didn't always work out I mean the one of the most dramatic things was in two thousand seventeen. She had to fire or chose to fire directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller when they they were making this prequel film solo because they had a different style it was improvisational and star wars to some degree has so much traditional rounded ear bit locked van whereas Kevin Feige he had the advantage of inventing the world's he was creating sure but this gives us a chance to look at the star wars movies that have been made and while it was unquestionably ably successful relaunch with the force awakens in two thousand fifteen after that you know there was some dicey nece in the universe rogue one effectively the director Gareth Edwards was sidelined and replaced by Tony Gilroy. That was the first spinoff movie it was. A success did over a billion dollars. There was a lot of backstage behind the scenes drama on that film then you had the solo stuff that you just referenced and even on the last Jedi which was successful commercials episode eight there was a lot of fan backlash to that movie because it did things with star wars that were not necessarily in line with mythology. It was a little jokey. Not some people didn't like the Princess Leia all the sudden had magical powers like there were some things that fans didn't like and there was backlash to that movie then on episode nine they had to fire another director Colin trevorrow and bring in J.j Abrams who did force awakens to rescue episode nine so this is not been a smooth mood process even though the films with the exception of Solo have been financially successful. Ma just say it will be a long time before we see the Kevin feige movie because I was told years but I don't know how many I don't mean I think they're I think what they're looking at. Is You know the theme park directions that they that they created are not making the noise and doing as as well as the Harry Potter attraction made so much with such as the Harry Potter attraction was such a success so we're seeing maybe maybe the beginning of a transition. Thank you matt.
The Big Picture
The Future of Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and Disney's Movie Monopoly
"I think we have to go and see twenty three right off. The top. I manage just told me that she read a thorough examination of the announcements made at this this weekend event. How are you feeling. Are you excited about the disney plus era upon us yeah but you have to do this. Julia minoshe from nonfiction chris farley watched non-fiction. You can just look blog. I clarified clarifying. I i think for disney and for me <hes> possibly in different ways you know disney has a strong brand as we know and it is quite articulate clearly articulated ticketed in this and i think that there will be many people including parents and star wars fans who have end marvel fans watch look forward to and i will be sending ending my streaming money elsewhere very interesting not surprising take from chris you are the coast of a podcast called the watch a long running podcast a hot. It looks closely a culture at large but particularly television a lot of t._v. Shows and disney plus. Here's my take on them. Don't care. I'd like to talk to you guys about the movies that were announced cheshire. Okay aside from the mandatory and i do care about this. Say which i care about all the there are two more stories memories t._v. shows. I'm sorry yet theoretically the mental learn is the only thing i have a clear percents of what it is and what it's going to be which actually does feel like the star wars show that we should have had like twenty five years ago very like <hes> grounded in the dirt small character look as opposed to the intergalactic battle kind of t._v. Show the other shows. I don't even know what are those shows. Isn't there a urine mcgregor. Obi obi wan the whole thing right. I think he's lovie wine. Even as i was saying it out loud i was like oh got him getting the names right. Am i getting the names right. Have you guys like a mandate. We're going to do a star wars episode so you should host and she she has ever told you. The story of this is a fun game to play. If you're like in a car and really board is you can ask you just tell you the plot of a movie a husband and i do this sometime and we maybe we should just do a podcast sometimes because it's really wild what people remember but famously i was asked to do the plot of star wars and i gave the entire plot with like intense analysis of the sexual tension between luke and leia and then also hans solo and the trash chute and all this stuff and just like did not mention the desktop the sexual tension between hansel and the trash chute. We are in russian. Oh yeah and i even got but at no point. Did i mention like the death star them blowing it up like the central plot of the movie just didn't exist in my brain spoiler. Sorry we have revealed views here officially that the death star is destroyed and star wars a new hope very sorry to everybody who hasn't seen episode four chris. Would you make the movie news non non non star wars edition so we got some moral news. We got a little look at the lady and the tramp live action yeah so for most of my life. Disney has been like a non factor <hes> it was a i never really grew up in disney household and a lot of these <hes> sort of legacy titles. Don't really mean a lot to me. I don't even know if i actually seen bambi like for instance. <hes> so a seminal event in movie history interesting to have the doorway into disney is marvel and star wars for me but now being introduced to this huge volume play and that that is kinda gonna come attendant with all this stuff and one of the things that we probably talk about when we get into the summer movie awards. That's been kind of confusing for me. This summer is having take things like aladdin seriously. You've been doing that no but it's like that takes up a lot of airspace. Have you seen either aladdin no yeah so you're not taking taking it serious. Oh i'm not taking it seriously but wouldn't you say that it plays a larger role in like pop culture in general because of the like the volume of the megaphone is that much louder pre everything builds everything else and now you've got these three things that disney legacy titles marvel and star wars say nothing of pixar and everything else that take up. I mean this is what you're saying a stranglehold on your brain. It's like sixty five percent of the airwaves man. It's true although in nineteen ninety-two aladdin was a big deal to so if you were hosting the watch which i don't know what would it have been call one thousand nine hundred smells like teen spirit yeah exactly if you were hosting smells like teen spirit the podcast you can get out of your windows media player six days to download it would still be forced to talk about and in some form or fashion but you're right the the the amount of mindshare that they have right now obviously is overwhelming and this is. I mentioned this biennial event. It doesn't happen every year the fact that it happened at this exact time while we're going through a me when wesley just had this conversation last week on the show we were like we are being choked out. You know brock listener has come to choke out with content. You guys get that referenced. I it's about wrestling. It's he wasn't in fighting with my family to today. Thank you to too much time on this podcast. I it is interesting like i could not help but see the announcement black panther too and just how far away that is. We are a thousand days away from black panther too. That's a long time. It's a it's become a cliche to say. We're all gonna be dead by then or the world will be on fire but it's possible that some things are significantly different culture at large a thousand days from now. We may not even have t._v.'s in one thousand days i don't. I don't know what's coming so to be planning that far ahead for something thing particularly something that is so anticipated yeah. I thought it was so strange. I thought it was almost like teasing away. That's funny because i had the opposite reaction which she's like this thing that we have been predicting for a long time which is disney as monopoly is here the this we have seen the realignment of the studios and the streaming services and kind of what the big names are going to be and we have been like well disney's just going to own everything and disney will have this movie and disney will have the streaming service and the men were in all of this i._p. And this was just the confirmation a certainty of okay they have consolidated. All of the i._t. Is together they have their distribution plan ready and disney plus and what what we expected to happen is going to happen and i have an easier time imagining how black panther too is going to fit into entertainment as we consume consumer than i do like basically any movie that a traditional movie studio is releasing or even most of the t._v. Shows on basic cable at this point but i think that the interesting thing that came out of some of these announcements between black panther being nine hundred days away and spider man being excommunicated from the is that there are a lot of people waiting on line. You know what i mean to get in to get their big screen time. There's a lotta characters. There's a lot of filmmakers producers who are all like so. This was a a huge hit and we've got to wait like four years and my guys gotta be in like a couple of thirty seconds spots and post credit sequences of the internals. That's you're telling me it's like that. I'm not single. Black panther would walk away from you. I don't think he michael jordan's. Not gonna get did going to do that but the spiderman thing i thought was indicative of indicative of so he being like let's go let's. Let's do another one most definitely but i think it's because while i think what you're saying is right that the playing field is kind of settled in a way that it's at least for the next next six to twelve months is going to be disney versus net flicks and then h._b._o. Max will come along and then you know. Universal will clarify what they're plays for the most part we we know what the short-term clarity around things but three years from now. I don't know if there's going to movie theaters close three years from now. I don't know if we will have have forty five hundred movie screens three years from now so getting that far ahead of ourselves. I think you're right chris that there's a desire to kind of plant flags. There's there has been mark. Harris has been writing about about this for coming up on ten years. Now this sort of like we plant our flag on a film that we don't even know what it is seven years ahead of time black panther too in particular those struck me as weird because it might be after the rise of skywalker. Maybe avatar to the most anticipated movie that exists that we're aware of world is that i am. I overstating it to say that will add. I think the avatar to is a good example. I mean not that. It's going to go black panthers. The wait between black panther one and two is nothing nothing resembling avatar in avatar too but it is indicative the fact that i think that like without seeing a single piece of footage. I think a lot of people are like. Does anybody still care about avatar. I was gonna ask coup is anticipating. I've talked to you besides get mine. I don't now i don't know but underestimate james cameron at your peril because this is what happened with titanic and this is what happened with avatar people were like is this going to be good. I don't know if i care about this and then boom biggest movie of all time and then biggest movie of all time twice he did that twice. People were like i don't know he lost his fastball. He's a weirdo. He loves to play with his toys doesn't understand humanity so i i wouldn't underestimate cameron trouncing

Toby Nap, Toby Knapp and Toby discussed on Toby and Chilli
"And theatrical stagecraft ne. Nothing like this has been done before. And if this works out Toby, can you imagine they did it one time with two pox, you Cour Coachella. But that was like a one time quick little weirded people out because you're bringing this person back and creating their art. And it's you know, it's a real like like that is and this is here's the thing. That's crazy too. With the way technology is yes, we could have a chillier mar we could have a Toby nap. Even though you don't have Toby Knapp for years because people record things, but I'm saying like if this worked out, and this was huge you could potentially have Michael Jackson concert holiday, discuss prince prince, hologram Elvis, who knows anybody who ever digitally recreated. Now, it's almost Princess Leia. She's going to be in the new Star Wars movie and Carrie Fisher passed away. So this is an entire new thing that we as a culture we're going to have to wrap our heads around. It's just make sure the ticket prices aren't as high because they're dead. I mean, they're not real Graham version. Should be a little bit less misogony on that.
