"Liotta, who played the lead in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas, also struggled to avoid typecasting, as did Paul sorvino, who played his mentor in the film. Why would I want to get into that? Just don't do it. I want to talk to you about Jimmy. You got to watch out for him. And the once a gangster always a gangster thing didn't just happen to featured players quite a few of serving as Goodfellas henchmen found steady employment with suburban mafioso Tony Soprano a decade later, including Paul Herman, who played beansie. This maniac. Right from the Zeppelin standpoint. And Tony sirico, who played walnut sculpture. He would have been done. Still, this wave of modern mafia epics was just that, a wave that crested with The Sopranos, almost two decades ago. There are still occasional mob stories with Italian faces, but in recent years, a more egalitarian Hollywood has turned its attention to African American anti heroes. Asian cybercriminals, drug cartels from Latin America, and as the mafia recedes, so eventually must its interpreters. Do you ever feel like nothing good was ever going to happen to you? Yeah. And nothing did. So what? I'm alive. I'm surviving. All 5 of these actors still robust and working at the start of this year are now gone, which is perhaps unsurprising in actuarial terms, but still comes as a shock. We tend to freeze actors in the roles we best remember, Khan was in his early 30s when he made The Godfather, young, vital. What the hell is this? It's a city of message. But it's now a half century later. Leota was in his 30s, serving of RICO and Herman in their 40s and 50s

Well, that an apple said to a ponied up $100 million for the film. Bateman then producers are said to have parted amicably, but parted they have no word yet on a replacement and finally today Apple TV plus is put out a well made trailer for a creepy looking show, the Cupertino streamer issued a press release Wednesday announcing a start date for the 6 episode limited series, blackbird. Quoting the release, inspired by actual events when a high school football hero and dedicated policeman son, the sentence to ten years in the minimum security prison, he's given the choice of a lifetime. Enter a maximum security prison for the criminally insane and befriend the suspected serial killer or stay where he is and serve as full sentence with no possibility of parole. They want him to do that so he can get a confession from the killer before the killer can get out of the technicality it seems. I watched the trailer and it looks really scary. Terran egerton plays the high school hero gone bad, Paul Walter Hauser plays the suspected serial killer, other cast members include seppa de moafi, Greg kinnear and Ray Liotta and what is likely to be his last television role. Leota passed away last month. The first two episodes of blackbird will hit Apple TV plus on Friday, the 8th of July, episodes will follow one per week for the next four weeks between now and then you can catch the seriously.

"Yeah. Give me those little guys. Am I playing as an ewok? Am I managing them? I'd love a management sim where you're building an ewok city. You have to keep them happy. I do that. And they're all like, I think. They're all like, they're all way too realistically rendered, and they all look like they're little people in costumes. They don't look stylized at all. I think it was a cool character. I definitely enjoyed a lot of fallen order. But yeah, I'm excited to see it come back.

Dude, you know what they need to make. What's that? I was going to say they need to make, you know how you have those games now on PC that are like, oh, you own a shop. And you sell stuff. They need to make one of those games where you play as a Java. And you like, you go into dungeons and you go into different dishes. You steal shit from people, and then you find like, and then you go back to your shop and you try and sell that shit. And it's a bit papers please as well because you're trying not to get caught and get revealed that you've actually just stolen that shit and they're trying to set it back to people. It'd be cool.

"Everybody. Wow. Wow. We're so excited to have you here. I'm Robert Smith. And I'm Kenny Malone. How many of you are familiar with micro face, just to get a gauge? It's not everybody. A few weeks ago, we recorded a live planet money episode at the roulette theater in Brooklyn. This was the culmination of our superhero series, in which we discovered a forgotten 1940s superhero with audio superpowers named micro face. We found a way to own a version of that intellectual property. We resurrected micro face by writing and publishing a brand new comic book, eventually it took us a while, Robert, but we did get there. We got in there, but now that we had that comic book in hand, we knew there was one more crucial corner of the superhero business we needed to explore. And just to set the scene for you, Robert and I are standing on a stage and a couple of music stands. There's a giant movie theater screen behind us showing pictures of things that we referenced throughout the show. One more thing you should know on stage Kenny and I are each holding copies of our micro face comic book, hot off the presses, and at the very front of the stage, there is a mysterious black briefcase. It's inlaid with the words micro face, origins, edition. Oh. Could that case contain the most collectible item ever made by mankind? Here's the show. All right. We good? So the podcast, we generally begin with a three, two, one. There you go. You're in the podcast now. That was a good move. Respect. Yeah. All right, in three, two, one. Over the last year, we here at planet money have been creating a physical product, which I hold in my hands now, the micro face comic book. Yeah, and for us, this is a kind of work of art, for sure. It's the story of a lost character. It's a teaching lesson about intellectual property. But at the end of the day, it is also a mass produced product that we made in a printing factory and we've printed 15,000 identical copies, we're selling each of them for the identical price of $6 and 99 cents. Stops to feel like art at some point. Yeah, that's fine. Like mass market is fine, we're an economics podcast. We understand this. You sell your marginal comic book for more than your marginal cost. And that's profit. But as any entertainment company can tell you, if you just sell an average product to an average fan, you're leaving money on the table. You're forgetting about the superfan. Giving money on the table feels a little cynical Robert. But yes, okay. Because I am one of these super fan types. And when I am into something, I'm all the way in Robert, as you know. I want the specific shirt from my favorite nicktoon character. I want the version of Mad Max: Fury Road that comes in a steel case. I want the actual film used to project madam leota onto a crystal ball at Disney World, all of which I have. From a business perspective, if you spot a super fan like Kenny, desperate to hand over his money for the love of something special, well, I mean, you would be remiss not to meet that need. If there are collectors, you have to give them objects to collect. You have to somehow create collectibles..

"And if your member of the iconic film field of dreams in which radio plays shoeless Joe Jackson and there's that great scene where James Earl Jones says to Kevin Costner who is thinking of building a baseball field and his cornfield and Iowa and James says to Kevin, the one constant is baseball, meanwhile, Timothy busfield, member him from 30 something. Timothy BuzzFeed is trying to get him to sign over the house because he's gonna go broke. But James Earl Jones just tries to tell him if you build it, they will come. Bus feels says you broke ray. If you don't sell now, you'll lose everything. James Earl Jones. The one constant through all the years has been baseball. I don't care who you are or how hardened your heart is. Oh, it should kill her scene. And I love that movie. And as a, as a screenwriter, as a guy that's been in the room with people and pitched movies and sold films that haven't been made yet, but I've sold three different screenplays that have been made. That's just the nature of the business. When I look at field of dreams, it should get everybody hope who's a screenwriting because it took that movie 13 years to get made, guys. Something is brilliant as field of dreams took 13. Maybe it was 11. I think Forrest Gump believe it or not, took 13 years. Maybe feel the dreams was 11 years. And I have some scripts that are going on 15 to 20 years. It's still having been made and you go, well, that's just the way Hollywood goes. How many assholes read that and couldn't see the brilliance and the genius of field of dreams? It just proves what the great screenwriter William Goldman said years ago about Hollywood. Nobody knows anything.

are seeing there appears to have not been any confrontation any ability to stop him as they were going into the school The director of the regional director of the Texas Rangers confirmed to us right at the top of this press conference that the door he accessed was not locked Now we've heard a lot of information about the fact that it was the end of the school year that there was an awards assembly It might have been an unusual day parents and visitors coming and going But the point is no security system in the world is not going to work if it's not engaged Why was the door unlocked Why was there this delay We heard about a gap in a response when the shooter crashes the vehicle that we've heard so much about And then there's 12 minutes and he climbs a fence and gets into the school Then we've heard about this period of time I mentioned at the top Alex there was this gun to slowly have gunfire And that may be that the terrible terrible moment where most of the victims were injured Or killed And then there was this hour long wait But what was going on specifically what was going on Why was it going on And the most important question that even the Texas Rangers are acknowledging they can not answer yet We know that in American law enforcement in the last 20 years you run toward the gunfire because they know that active shooters will not stop until they're stopped And so why did these police officers not run towards the gun fire Nobody wants to blame anybody but 19 children to teachers They're gone And the answer is just are not available yet We are also learning today that the husband of one of those teachers has died of a heart attack They were high school sweethearts and they aren't sure about what happened exactly but today he died of a heart

Actor Ray Liotta perhaps best known for his role in the mob drama Goodfellas and playing shoeless Joe Jackson in field of dreams has passed away ABC's Jason nathanson joining us with more on this and some other big news in the entertainment industry today Leota was only 67 years old Jason Yeah just 67 and reportedly passed away in his sleep He was in the Dominican Republic filming a movie so not in any bad health that we knew of I got a chance to talk to him last year for the many sense of Newark The Sopranos prequel movie and he didn't seem like anything was necessarily wrong or he was fighting any kind of disease or anything like that He sounded a little older maybe a little tired of his voice a little more scratchy but we got a chance to talk a little bit about that infamous role in Goodfellas playing Henry hill And he gave me a great quote about something that Joe Pesci had once I do him when they were talking about the movie and Henry hill's involvement in it I think Pesci once said that it's really true Sometimes you're the glitter and then sometimes you're the glue Well everyone was the glue And certainly Joe Pesci the glitter of that movie because he's the one who won the Oscar And everybody knows ray leota for the film but you know I think people remember Robert De Niro And Joe Pesci because they had flashier roles but it was really all about Ray Liotta's character He was the glue of that film Something that he up until now that he was certainly remembered for more than anything else Kevin Spacey being remembered for things that he probably wouldn't like us to remember in for today and now new serious charges against the actor Yeah these are sexual assault charges four counts coming from the UK from people who said that Spacey assaulted them going as far back as 2005 between 2005 and 2013 We don't know all the specifics of the charges but apparently it was three men on these four counts And we haven't heard anything from Spacey yet although he has long maintained his innocence when it comes to all this He was interviewed about this as they were investigated This is a couple of years ago when the count's first came forward but I guess they felt they couldn't make their case until now Spacey did at one point sit for interviews in these charges And the bright spot in a lot of people's afternoons about to change I love you so

"Between cat and their person through cat communication and energy healing. Her goal is to ensure that a newly adopted cat gets a fair chance of being welcomed into their family with open arms. The cat advocate in her always wants to ensure that no cats gets taken back to a shelter because of behavior issues. She works with clients to address aggressive behaviors, poor litter box habits, skittishness, and more. The goal is to teach owners more about the human side of cats and how they feel just as scared and ungrounded as we can in new environments. She's found that the more we recognize how our behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and actions can influence cats. The more we can grow individually as well as our cats and the life we co create with them. One of her missions in this work is to educate cat owners about holistic alternatives once medical issues have been ruled out. The spiritual layer of cat behavior and how they respond to our energy. In her eyes, there is no such thing as a bad cat, but merely a cat who requires a bit of emotional and energetic support. Another passion of Jessica's is teaching animal communication using tangible methods like muscle testing or a pendulum. She offers online and in person workshops to educate cat owners on how to include them in decisions regarding their well-being like food and litter preferences and even picking out their name. Jessica's mom to three perfect little kitties, Merlin, leota, and Columbia, and when not working, you can find Jessica spending quality time with her husband, Andrew at Walt Disney World, or jam skating on the local trails. She currently resides in the Tampa Bay Area. Jessica, welcome to the show. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. Hello. So I went through it in a bit in your bio, but share with our listeners, how did you become so passionate about cats? What is it about cats that really turned you on? Oh my gosh. Well, I first fell in love with cats when I was about the age of four and my uncle also my godfather decided I needed a cat and just needed one. So he just brought one home and so it was just love at first sight. And we were together for 18 years and I tell you, I'm still not over her passing away. Her name was Dora and she was just perfect and ever since then I've always had cats. It is just, it's my lifeline. If I don't have a cat near me, like I literally don't know what to do with myself. And when I was a kid, I just always dreamed like, oh my God, it would be so cool if I could just talk to cats. Like, I want to be able to talk to cats. Like, what are they thinking? And now I can know what they're thinking. And it's so cool. I feel like I manifested this. That is really cool. So, but you've had this interesting journey because you came to this through your own health issues. Yeah. And so, you know, tell us a little bit if you wouldn't mind sharing a bit about your health issues. You talked about having some migraines and some other issues. So it sounds like you had to learn how to communicate with your own body with yourself first and foremost to be able to help you out. And how did you do that? I mean, I would say magic, but honestly, I've got very lucky in working with different practitioners during those ten years of migraines..

"Together and there are 131 One of them at the Disneyland attraction, so buggy number one is linked behind buggy 131 and in front of buggy number two and so on, And they all move together, But they can swivel and pivot independently, depending on where they are along the track. So that safety bar I mentioned how does that move into place? Well, it's not ghostly magic. This part of the clamshell design of the buggy is mounted on a pivot arm. So it can move up or it can move down and the arm has tension springs on it and those springs the way the tension is. It normally holds the safety bar in the lowered or closed buggy position. So when there is no other force acting on this buggy, it's naturally closed because those springs are holding it closed. But mounted on the end of this pivot arm are stabilizing wheels, which, through most the ride aren't making contact with anything. They're these tiny wheels that are on the back of the dune buggies, and they're usually just Up in the air, not touching anything so that bar stays in place because the springs are holding it because of the tension, But in the loading and unloading zones, there's a special stabilizing rail, a guide rail mounted at a level that will engage those wheels. Uh, this guide rails actually higher up than the Track that the chassis is traveling along because that actually extends down beneath the the floor level. Quite a bit. The buggy moves along the track, and when the wheels make contact with the stabilization rail, it forces the pivot arm, too. You know, pivot. It strains against the springs and the springs expand as the wheels are pressed up by this immovable rail, And thus the bar rises up, meaning the buggy actually opens as long as those wheels are pressed against the rail like that the door remains open. But as it starts to leave the loading area that rail starts to slope away. And when it slips away, the wheels gradually lose contact with the rail and the spring is able to contract and it forces the bar back into the lowered or closed position again. It's a simple, elegant system purely mechanical, and it means the body of the buggy itself doesn't need any electronic parts. Except for the speaker system. The sound system that's built into the buggies is electronic. But all the Parts that are about moving are purely mechanical. As for how the cars move again that's built into the track. It's not part of the dune buggies. It's in the track on the underside of the chassis is a grip plate. This is a vertically aligned metal plates. So it's like a shark fin accepted, sticking out the bottom of the chassis, not the top and the grip plate comes into contact with rubber belts mounted on drive motors on the bottom of the track, so I think Two wheels with rubber belts on them. They're essentially pressing against each other, and they're spinning really fast, And as the plate comes in between them the belts, grip the plate and push it through. That's exactly how this drive motor is working so it can make the entire ride move or it can bring things to a stop. These drive motors are only found on straight segments of track because when the vehicles are going around a curve, they wouldn't align the grip plate would not come into alignment with those rubber belts. So if you're ever in a part of the ride that's curving. You are not in a section that has been Being powered at that moment, So when you're going around Madame Leota, for example, during the say on sequence, you know that it's other sections, the ride that are actually getting the power to move everything at that point Now, as I mentioned, there are speakers in the dune buggies. These are electronic, obviously, and they play the audio for the ride. And those Audio cues are are lined up with whatever area you're going through. According to the relative position of your buggy, you hear a certain audio track if you've ever been on the ride when it has come to a stop, as sometimes can happen, especially like Let's say someone with mobility issues needs to get on or off the ride. They may have to stop it temporarily or if there's a malfunction in the right, it might stop temporarily. But that means you'll be stuck in a stationary position and you'll hear the same audio loop for a while, always seem to get stuck on that hill leading down to the graveyard scene when you're in that recline position, so I hear a lot of grim, grinning ghosts. Whenever I ride this ride, the fact that there are more than 130 Doom buggies compared to the nine pirate ships on Peter Pan's flight, and that these buggies never for the most part. Stop moving a lot more people can experience the how to mention in an hour. Than Peter Pan's flight. Even though the haunted mansion is a longer ride, it's more than twice as long as Peter Pan's flight. So the theoretical hourly capacity for the haunted mansion is more than 3000 guests an hour and Peter Pan is closer to 800. Now I mentioned Pepper's ghost at the top of this episode. So before I move on to other ride systems, I thought I would explain what that is really quickly. This is an old illusion, and it predates Disney. By a long stretch. In fact, there's an early historical account of this. The dates all the way back to 15 84, and it's all based off of light and reflection. It's used primarily and in the honey mentioned in the ballroom party sequence where a bunch of ghosts are gathered for a swinging good wake. So let's say that you've got a background upon which you want ghostly images to appear like a physical background. Well, with the hunted mentioned this would be the large banquet hall. And in front of this background, you have a transparent pane of glass or plastic, and it's at a 45 degree angle. With respect to the audiences, point of view and Out of sight of the audience after some side or the other. You have a subject in this case, an animatronic figure that is very well let, but the audience can't see it directly. However, they can see the reflection of these. Well, let figures on that transparent pane of glass. And because the glass is transparent, the audience can actually see through the figures themselves. They are ghosts. You've got yourself some ghosts in that sequence is Pretty darn cool. So in that ballroom scene, you've got figures that are in a plane above and below the doom buggies because the actual figures themselves are above and below the track. Now, you don't see a reflection of yourself. In that sequence because the doom buggies are not brightly lit. Whereas the animatronic figures above and below you are lit very, very well. And just by dimming the lights around the Zen electronics, so you can create the effect of ghosts disappearing as the reflections fade. So the effect is that you're seeing ghosts flying near the ceiling or around the banquet table when in reality They are animatronic figures that are actually above and below your doom buggy, spooky, and the sort of effect was possible because the right designers could determine which way the audience would be facing. The Omni Mover system has been used in several rides at Disney, though, according to Bob Ger, Not all the rights that are in constant motion are technically Omni mover rides. For example, Ger says that the right system of spaceship Earth is not an Omni mover despite the fact that on casual glance, it certainly looks like one and in fact, a lot of sources refer to it as an Omni mover ride. It's the type of ride that is in constant motion. There's a moving sidewalk for you to get on and get off of the ride. I don't know what it is specifically that sets it apart. But girl has said quote. It was one of a kind conveyor, totally unlike and sharing no parts with an Omni mover, end quote. Hey,.
