Everyone's been telling me to go and susie really wanted to go. It's called joe's shanghai usually. It's like an hour or two way.

And i didn't really care if the noodles but the dump things are to die for like. That's what people in new york that places known in chinatown.

Were just around the corner waiting for something like this to happen and luckily randy is a grown adult and was able to control himself and not get into a fight but he easily cut off. It would have been bad because there was no other guys to back up and like means you're going to throw hands if we have to throw hands but it's just we're going to get hit by these guys and it was just going to be a hot mess so we ended up leaving and there was.

Vaccine withheld from hospital that gave Trump Tower shots
"Have to move on to this bombshell story. That blocked club first reported this week. Loretto hospital in austin before we get into all the impropriety here today. They said that they are reprimanding their coo and their ceo for these improper. Vaccinations kelly bauer. Do we know what reprimand means. In this case. I have to to politicians who are on the hospital's board of directors. And all they would say at the time was that we put out this statement. We're not going to elaborate on rep. What it means to reprimand so we are still trying to figure that out and see what could be happening to the ceo coo. Okay so the first story that you published here was that they the coo. Dr notion med has an apartment in trump tower about two and a half million dollar apartment and the hospital. That has these vaccinations for folks on the west side. Improperly administered vaccinations to trump tower employees. Is there any evidence of some sort of trade-off or exchange or how how this came to be well. We spoke to leto hospital and their ceo. George miller says that it was actually him who helped set up this event but what we found is that right or workers at trump tower told residents that it was loretto hospital that reached out to them now. Loretto hospital is saying that its workers who reached out to them. So it's very much a. He said she said situation. But the city's department said they are looking into it and investigating why these ineligible workers were able to get shots. Before other people and also ineligible were cook. County judges and guest preach judge that also got vaccinated. And there's some different answers onto how that happened. Even though those were not allowed in the current phase as well amanda vindicated. You look at the board of this hospital. As kelly mentioned there's to state lawmakers that sit on the board There's a state lawmaker. Camille lilly that works for the hospital. This is a hospital that gets tens of millions of dollars in reimbursements from the state's medicaid program. Is there a conflict of interest. Here that there can be this much clout on a hospital board. I mean those are certainly questions that were all asking. What sort of favors might members of the war getting terms of the vaccines employment whatnot. We're we're not saying that there is merely that these are the questions to ask in. This gets to something that we've talked about a lot as there's been a lot of corruption of course in springfield and that is that there are really lax economic interests statements conflict of interest rules in then again to place. Where have devil's advocate there. There are those who say it. Is it positive when you have. For example he state legislator employed by hospital because that brings along a expertise. This is a citizen legislature. It is technically a part time job and the reason for that being was because you want to bring in farmers dentists doctors people with all different sorts of knowledge so there are certainly two sides to that point but given kelly's reporting the trump tower. I think that's what it is. It's just it's it's the who got it because these are. There's a lot to look into here and kelly bars. You mentioned that the city's health department is investigating. They've halted vaccinations to that hospital. What do you anticipate. They're going to uncover in their probe. Well we've heard from multiple sources and people questioning why workers at trump tower who are able to get vaccinated and not other hotel workers now. We've also seen that. The ceo's church was able to get vaccinated. This doctor arwady. The head of the city's health department said today that they are investigating they will not be sending doses to loretto hospital until they are confident. Those doses are going to be appropriately.
Jared Leto on new movie 'The Little Things' and being an Oscar winner
"Hi everyone. I am peter travers. This is popcorn where we tell you. What's going on at the movies. And i saw terrific movie right now called the little things. This is a movie about two cops played by of all people in washington and rami. Malek in search of someone they think is a serial killer in nineteen ninety los angeles and this guy that they focused on is played by my guest today. jared leto. Who usually gives them a run for their money in terms of letting them twist in the wind deciding whether his character is guilty is he. A serial killer is he not. I've got to tell you jared that this is one of my favorite performances of yours. It's it's like a co lassic kind of movie villain that we don't know if he's guilty of what he's accused of but we know is guilty of something definite strange character but he has humor is playful. He's all those things that make you remember character. So did you feel when you first read the script. No i said what is this. I don't wanna do this. I is was actually buy those my response. I thought you know. Maybe i should explore different territory. You know. I played a kind of than the darker side of the moon. A bit and You know. I thought maybe this wasn't the right thing to do And then after talking to john lee. Hancock and i realized that there there could be an opportunity. Here's he seemed really open. I said if we're going to do this together. I'd like to to to kind of use it as an exercise in transformation to to really try to sculpt this this this wild man albert's pharma Into something quite unlike anything. I'd done before so he seemed really game And the prospect to working with denzel washington one of my heroes and then rami malek in the mix. It was just couldn't say no. And what i love about you. Working with them is that yes albert. Your character trump really tries to drive the both of them crazy and with a kind of zen deadpan. That you have yourself you know. There's i don't want to say there's a little of you albert but there's there's some of it in. Yeah sure i've been. You know you you take parts of yourself. Other people Experiences that you've had and you kinda just build this collage you know i it with. Albert's parma was head to toe from the walk to the voice. I had different color is different knows different teeth. I had some other prosthetics different way of carrying myself and it was quite exciting to put this guy to life and to really take risk and push things right up to the edge And hopefully not crossover into absurdity But yeah he is a bit An un unwittingly unknowingly zinn. He is the voice of like maybe a soothing yoga teacher or something does. There's one i don't want to spoil any platt detests. But there's one point where they both taking you to the police station in la. It's an interrogation room and the phone rings and albert says is that for me. You know quite a quite innocent with it. It's that kind of thing that he's open to sort of any moment until he's ready to spring with something that will make denzel crazy. Sic chrissy i. there's nothing more fun than you know. antagonizing the other characters in the film and for spar he knew he uses that as a tool a likes to keep people off balance off center and humor is one of the ways that he does it and it was quite fun to show on saddened to bring all kinds of different Ideas for ad libs and improv and John lee hancock was amazing. Because you know he was the writer as well but incredibly generous with the opportunity to improvise ad-lib and he really just let me go to town. Would you haven't worked with denzel rami before right. No no no. I had an an. I didn't know them Either and i mean what was kind of fun as well as that didn't do any rehearsal like for the interrogation senior talking about that was the first scene with all three of us and the first big seen it was quite intense and intimidating Exciting there was a lot of pressure and it was explosive on sad. It was it was there. Were fireworks going off. It was really exciting to get in the ring with those guys. Everyone came prepared. I think we all knew there was an opportunity there and we all took advantage of it. Well you know all you have oscars so now. Nobody can ask you to do anything. You don't wanna do right. You just hold that thing up. You can take it with you that day. You want you could certainly a casa damage with it It is a you know. Denzel washington said the other day. You know trophies the they it's like when you're a prizefighter that the belt you won the last times not going to help me this time in the ring and Is true you know you you. It's beautiful thing to be acknowledged and winning the oscar. Was you know. An unforgettable highlight of my life and share that with my family and my friends and supporters Through my life was a really special thing.

Snubs and surprises from this year's Golden Globe nominations
"The globe. Nominations happened and boy. They'd seemed a mess. How do you feel hi. How are you feeling about words and being back. I guess i'm glad to have award season back though isn't it. We can discuss specific to these nominations. I feel a little bit like charlie brown with the football because every year we talk about make fun of the hollywood foreign press association. And let's be clear we're going to continue to make fun of them. They are traditionally. It's a small group of international journalists. Who do not have a lot of renown really know outside of the fact that they are in this mysterious priests small group of people. They really like celebrities or their definition of another other thing. We'll discuss and their star fuckers and they give nominations to people they want in a room rather than a merit or at least our interpretation of merit. It seems like to win an award. You just have to go to as many parties as possible and then think the association from the stage. We know that there are always bad. Choices always mysterious traces. We're always like what is going on. Who are these people. Why do we do this. But i would say even for the hollywood foreign press association and even for a film here had some challenges aka pandemic theaters being close and far fewer films released unusual. These are real embarrassing. And i woke up just being like. Are you serious. We have to do this again. Like come on yeah i. It's hard to know we've gone through looking glass or not some of these. I think we're fairly standard and expected in their plenty of movies that i'm sure we'll be talking about when we get to the oscar nominations in a couple months but there were a handful of nominations. What what. I will generously called the surprises. That just took my breath away. That i i think even in my wildest dreams i could not have imagined the fbi concocting so. Let's just talk about them because this award show is happening really soon. It's february twenty eight. It's gonna be hosted by. Amy poehler and tina fey. It's going to be on nbc. And so we're going to actually having awards season to cover for real for real. I think we have to start with the jared leto nomination for the little things. This is probably the single biggest. W t.f of this collection and it's funny because when we talked about the little things on the show last week i think we both walked away from the little things thinking. Jared leto is pretty entertaining in it. And maybe rising to the challenge of this camp script and that being said i. I never considered him. A worthy report surprised to see this nomination. I enjoyed watching him in the little things in the context of the little things which was not a film that worked at all and so at least someone was doing something you know and i was talking with friends about it. There's like a really a nice like vintage. This is bad feeling to the little things that i found pretty comforting. You know it's like it's not like someone just made a twitter thread into a movie on an iphone and like someone wrote a script and they tried to do this old ninety staying. And then jared leto is doing the weird villain and having too much fun with it. It's like i know what's happening here even if it's not working and and i'm glad to have it back. I do not know that it needed to rise to the level of golden globes ovation especially because the golden globes supporting category does not differentiate between drama and comedy in some of the comedy. Nominations things get wild. But that's because you're kind of you're filling it out there some extra slots. A lot of people didn't get nominated in supporting actor. Jared leto like weird joke of serial killer. I think he's right. Can we talk about that for a second. This is dangerous rabbit hole to go down. I have no idea. The truth is. I don't know i think you're meant to believe that he did. Not if you haven't seen this movie. Sorry for spoiling it for you. It's unspoiled in many ways because it has an ambiguous ending of sword. I- i- i- jared. Leto obviously is has won an academy award. He is a very famous person has been celebrated. He's also like kind of a joke. You know like. I really enjoy him as a performer. A famous person. But he's kind of a joke. I mean he's he so Has all of the pretensions. And absurdity of the method actor who sort of you know pulling pranks on his cast members by trying to get into character and so outside and so masking his beauty all the time with these ridiculous roles you know like in the little things that character has like a is is fat and walks with a limp and why it's just pure actually affect nation and the role is actually affectation and the asia was impressed by that or impressed. By the idea of having jared sit in on their award show. But jared. Leto is not tom hanks. For example someone who did not get knocked out.

"Malik and Jared Leto. What he asked. Yes, I've heard about this. It's only gonna be on there for 30 days, right? I believe so. It's also tell you I was too okay. Yeah. Yep. Guys, this movie You wanna watch it with someone, or at least go online and discuss because the ending, especially so it's a thriller movie. Who done it, Denzel and Ram me. They both play police officers, and Jared Leto is a his strange He's very strange. In fact, he is the The way he played this character If he had played the Joker that way, I think we would have liked the character more like him as joker more But it's great nineties throwback. There's no cell phones. They used pay phones. The performances were great, but it brings you to the end. And either you feel Wow. That was great. Or what just happened. I'm so confused. And the other thing in the reason why, and I like that. I like movies like that, right where there's a little bit of like what happened because I thought about this all night and on Hill and I talked about 45 minutes afterward, just going through all the different Images that the story lines who done it and we both came up with different answers. Okay. It's s O. Who was Denzel? Who does he book is a police officer. He's the older of the two. He's moved out of the Los Angeles area, but he used to work in that area as a police officer, and you learn a little bit about you know why he has moved why he hasn't been promoted. Randy Malik is the young bright star in the police department right now. And he didn't sells character sees a lot of himself in that character. So there's a little There's a kind of a mentoring thing going on. Then you also have Jared Leto, who super creepy, strange guy. And it's basically did he do it or not? Okay. And it is. There's a serial killer out. It kind of has a seven vibe, too. So, uh, just Oh, man, it It's so intriguing, you guys after right After that, you're gonna want to go online or call someone or watch this with someone because it's so interesting. To see the different points that you pull out versus someone else who's watching the same film and come up with a different answer. You have more questions for sure than you do answer. So if you don't like that in a movie, this is not for you. It's Z s. Oh, there's work to be done by you The viewer. This isn't a passive experience. Is that what you're saying? Yes. Yes. And yeah, you're different takeaways from it. This is a story that really sticks with you. After the first five minutes. I was in I was. I have to know what's happening here. Now. I've also read some reviews about because they're mixed. You know about the ending quickly. But also before that, too, that it kind of drags on, and it's long. It's a two hour movie. Didn't get those vibes, but Just to put that out there. You might feel that way. There is one point in the film to that. I think that whoever wrote it did a disservice to the character because the character would not have done that, okay. Um, that just led to the design health service. Anyway, You said you had different okay? Yep. In that point, there was a point of no return. That that character? Why did that character do that There had to be in a better way to isolate There had to have been, uh, I have no ideas myself. But that was you have to kind of OK and go with it. In order to Enjoy that part of it, but I think that was the only misstep for me. This is the little things on HBO. Max with Denzel Washington. If you just tuned in, Lex watched it over the weekend, and Jared Leto, I think really stole the the movie. He the portrayal of this this guy he's haunting. Okay. You know me, I everything you're describing. I have zero interest in this like this. I'm saying this. I don't know. Oh, I don't think you're gonna love this because it's a crime. It's a thriller. It's Yeah. Oh, it's not like a scary movie. But But then you also like that serial killer documentary. I do like serial killers. So, yeah, I'm kind of on the fence about whether you like this or not rephrase that. I like documentaries about serial killer. Thank you, dog. I'll rephrase that. I am Started thinking. Oh, do you have any prison pen pals with the last God core, Colin? I was a pin, pal. I mean, I did have one little relationship that I tried to keep secret. No, no, thank you, Don for helping me out. Shit. I'm a couple couple speed slow today. Um, but, yes, I enjoy serial killer documentaries and stuff and crime real true crime. But but crime as a genre of film, No. You guys all to watch this, though, so we can talk more about it, okay? I don't mind watching if you Yeah, but whether you like it or not, That's the question, okay, but it does again. I woke up thinking about the story thinking about what happened. Why it happened. It's a deep dive psychologically into the characters, let alone the chemistry between them. There's a lot to talk about. Okay? I would I would watch. You know, e don't believe you, but okay, But, you know, I mean, for the show, I'll do it for the show. You know, Right?.
'The Little Things' stars Jared Leto, Rami Malek, Denzek Washington is a stirring crime thriller
"Denzel Washington Rami Malek and Jared Leto collide in the little things a mystery premiering today on HBO. Max, a jaded detective tracks a serial killer in the San Fernando Valley. It must really like my car. Do I was the trunk space. Denzel Washington gives a complex performance as a cop willing to bend the rules. Unlike his idealistic deputy, Ramsey Malik during a cat and mouse game with Jared Leto's creepy suspect, writer director John Lee Hancock has been trying to get a script made since 1993 feeling like a nineties thriller like the Silence of the Lambs. It's a shame it wasn't made back Then, as we've since seen the same concept done much better in seven Zodiac and prisoners. Still, I'm a mark for this John Rush trying to solve the case, even if we've seen it
'The Little Things' Is A Star-Studded, Old-School Serial Killer Thriller
"Um okay, So let's move over to, um, the thing that we were just talking about just a while ago. Why are we all talking about Jared Leto right now? Yeah. So he's in this movie called the little things that the on each feel, Max and and feeders. You got that? Don't you calling? I do I have that. Yeah. So start. You know Denzel Washington places better than cop he had back to his old stomping ground in L. A in order to help chase down the serial killer. Before the seventh victim was claim. Robin Malik is the new detective. That's kind of leading the case. So they've got a bad and you've got this new concept by those two. And then Jared Leto is someone they kind of have their eyes on. He's super creepy, super greasy looking. And you had allegedly that he is a killer. And throughout this movie, you're like you see, actually the killer or is this kind of a Mr AC on? Maybe just a token off kind of police blindness, If you well, I don't wanna get too much because it really kind of scratches that age if you like. That kind of grisly crime, psychological thriller serial killers. I do love me a good show color movies eat, right. It just kind of leaves you on edge the entire time.

"Hey, you know, it's on Netflix like everybody. Everybody have everybody who has Netflix, which almost everybody, But she said it was such like Oh, no, no, I haven't seen it. But I have I have. I have. But I just haven't used again hasn't gotten to her pile of reviewed Netflix selections Kind of like in the old days. We would have, you know, like VHS tapes just sitting there waiting to be watched, like, Oh, no, but I have that I'm gonna watch it. Yeah, Like I'm gonna do it now, which is why we want a shorthand like Oh, I saw what you're referencing or I haven't done it yet. Haven't done it. It's excitable where that it's in the universe. Which is exactly what Jared Leto is doing right now to Billy, I'll ish and and Phinnaeus. It's like he wants to be part of the conversation. He wants to hitch his wagon. To their success, but he doesn't actually have anything to do with it. He just wants you to know he almost did this thing. But he didn't do that thing. Where, like, If you've got a friend. I don't know. I could just see a number of situations where you're like. Oh, no, no. Yeah, I know I'm right. Like if I said to you if you asked me, like, have you ever been to this hot, trendy new restaurant and I said no, but I've driven by it. Or you, my my program called one Oh, yeah. So the question was. Did you do it? You but the answer clearly answers? No, no, right. So I just thought it was interesting. I'm like, Why is Jared Leto? First of all? Why is your little talking so much? What's he in? He's got a new movie out. It's with Denzel Washington. That's going to be on HBO. Okay? Yes, That's right. You're Yes, I have that. Um uh, It's called the little things Yes. I have that, too. But I just think it's so interesting is he's making the rounds. These stories he's telling. And this is not like Jared Leto because Jared Leto is very notorious for trying to be aloof. This is the man remember who was out of town. On some sort of like silent retreat. And came back into town. There was a pandemic. Oh, yeah, and he was like, what's going on? Right? So this is a person who's notoriously aloof. I don't know. It's like he's been advised to tell these Headline gripping stories. I mean, somebody's probably behind. Having him pushed these out, or they're trying to distract from The Is there drug problem? We're trying to do what I know Well, that Yeah drug related perhaps sale of an Academy Award. That's a total conspiracy theory slash.
The Little Things Movie Review
"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.
interview With Meagan Crawford
"Well. Megan welcome to manage and cut off. This has been a year overdue at this point. An entire pandemic overdue. Maybe i'm happy that you're here talking to us. I'm really thrilled to be here. Thank you for having me anything so to start. I want everyone to meet you. Because you're awesome So you are a member of space fund. You also have this podcast mission eve. That is fantastic. Can you tell everyone a little bit about you sure. Yeah co founder and managing partner of space fund Where venture capital firm investing exclusively in the new space ecosystem so very kind of targeted fund And then i also have my podcast mission eve which I interview the most amazing women in the space industry. It's just been a thrill and just so much fun to do. And in the hopes of inspiring more women to join us here in the space industry So that's that's a project that's near and dear to my heart I'm also on. The board of several nonprofits needs to do a quick shout out the space frontier foundation. The center for space commerce finance mars initiative and the earth light foundation Spend an inordinate amount of my time helping those at nonprofits. So i think that's probably about it so we're gonna talk about a bunch of different angles on the finance side of stuff which i occasionally touch on but probably not as deeply as i should in many cases there's some fundraising that has happened. In the past year that has been particularly notable for the size specifically spacex relativity. Been getting gargantuan amounts of money there's some acquisitions that have happened recently. And then There's a whole trend of holding companies. That i find quite interesting as well as a trend that i find interesting and more shady. Which is this whole special purpose acquisition friend. Those are the things. I want to pick your brain about. Is there an order. would you like to start with fundraising and then get into what happens after. You've gotten a bunch of funding and actually accomplish things. What's the right order there. Yeah well I think i'd like to start with this kind of startling statistic that that i i like to I like to bring up a lot. Is that One and it's it's one of the reasons that spaceman was founded. Actually is you know. Currently launched comprises less than two percents of the global space economy yet has received seven percent of the venture capital. Today right sounds crazy but it. It makes such intuitive sense to like you know somebody watches the markets but exactly crazy. Yeah that's crazy. Yeah i like it when you hear that you're like oh yeah that seems right but holy crap. That's crazy just hear those numbers right and now the one question i would have is. Does that. include any space x funding as launch. Yes that includes spacex funding and includes the you know that big relativity rounded includes all of that. So i guess that's my that would be. My stipulation is like how. How do you separate out. What of that is going to starlink. zach satellites. Then does that skew it or is it not big enough to actually skew. Anything no matter how you classify either couple billion. Yeah so you know the regardless. It's it's a huge number even if he were to try and take starlink out of the kind of the space x portion of that. They're going to be forty percent of the venture right number exactly exactly and so you know when When my partner. Rick tomlinson and i were contemplating a founding space fund. You know this was one of the things that was really bothering us. We were kind of looking around the industry at all of our our friends and colleagues. Who are these brilliant entrepreneurs going and down sandhill road and couldn't get any funding and meanwhile while all these other. Vc's are just pouring good money. After bad into launch company after launch company because all ilan has launched company and basil's has launched company and jared. Leto is invested in in relativity space so i need a launch company. Right and base fund is currently tracking a hundred and sixty two active launch companies around the world.
Do the celebrities help the startups or do the startups help the celebrities?
"So this week. We saw that josh richards. Who is a tiktok star previously of the sway house which is one of the many tiktok mansions that have kind of popped up over los angeles as influence or homes. Josh richards is joining remiss capital and early stage venture firm as a venture partner. And as i'm sure we will get into not super nudist see celebrities get into venture space. They have huge reach. They can do a lot for especially consumer businesses with a simple instagram story. And so maybe the place to start with with the josh richards. Conversation is like really bullish on this transition. What would we say like what is good about this transition and then we can make the jokes because i know there will be jokes. But let's start with why this makes sense. Alex i okay. I have been critical in the past of celebrity investing. Because it's always struck me as little bit frivolous but i think that's because i underestimated the cultural impact of people of the moment and according to iverson will group text that i'm on with my friends. Talk is the thing. So if you are an enormous star in the tiktok world getting you involved with the company makes a lot of sense and my thought here is that i think in the old as we go to see more endorsements opposed to investments. You know you'd say like we're going to get you know josh richards or charlie delio or bryce. I'm reading the notes price hall to endorse your party to the long tail of knowledge for tiktok star. I see tiktok. But i don't know who the people are because i'm not cool at all but i think now with took being so popular and having so much cultural resonance with people that are out there using their dollars so in mark influence. It's probably reasonable that these people are going from being endorsers to be invested because once they have more money themselves and they have enough power deployed demand a seat at the table to get some ups. I did a piece of the pie. So i want to make jokes but i won't. I'll just say that in the past celebrity has had a mixed track record. But in this case. I think bringing attention via celebrity and tiktok makes sense. Okay danny leterrier pros and cons. And then i will finish this off. I think the big question is always do. The celebrities helped startup or the startups helped the celebrities. I think some celebrities have made a lot of money on their investments by think in many ways celebrities get access and in in many ways. I'm not sure they actually create the value for these companies. But because of the celebrity status they sort of get an allocation the otherwise it wouldn't have been able to get you know obviously if you're having a startup the targets gen z. Tiktok is the platform to go about do that. I just don't think it helps anyone else you know i. I just think about the company's like okay. Let's let's hope about sky flow. You know this is the polymorphic. Encryption data security company. Get josh richards to help. On what i'm kidding. Of course not so its seat and that's ultimately like you know. I think it's always about these brand plays. I'm in new york. We have a ton of successful brand plays because of the so like may richards endorses bro. And its next round and is like the the next to the guy in the commercials. I forget which the famous movie stars was on there. No one knows that this group. We're not that demographic. Danny this is where the show. We're just taking a right to the gutter. I think they're definitely serves. They can use this. I think it's fine to venture partner. Josh has been very entrepreneurial and getting a bunch of stuff out there. But what i've heard. The guy makes f ton of money saving our producers gave them work there but a ton of money doing all these sponsorship deals. I think it's fine. I just think we have to like not change coverage and we focused on in which companies make money based on which celebrities are attached to which companies like. It's always good to go back to the dollars and sense and so. I don't think it changes what we do here at techcrunch. I'm certainly not going to cover story. I actually been pitched stories. That are like gosh. Richards has invested in this company. I was like. I don't know who that is. Take this to not work in my experience talking to celebrities in and around technology events. More broadly i talked to a former doctor who about surface once that was a fiasco but i did. Enjoy my child with jared leto at a boxing event because one. I got to take a picture with him. I was topless now funny and to he actually had some pretty good he is about starts so i think there is the occasional investor who's also celebrity. Who can do some reasonable things. I'm curious to see how this bears out. Ashton kutcher is investments. Have been up and down. So we'll see. But i'm not going to be dismissive of the kids.

Stop it stop it. Now i want. I wondered whether that was. Is that an exaggeration. Or was it genuinely like no you. You can have this music but as long as you will see and treat a bit more like the audience in a classical concert. It's that more of that kind of attica. Yeah that was completely accurate depiction. That was really. There was an entire ban on dancing at conscious until nineteen eighty-seven. Yes it's true. It is true so it is yeah. I mean it's completely dissolved. They couldn't expansion of but to them. It was just to do with keeping people. Within the normal promises of soviet behavior rayleigh was keeping people from getting to rebellious obeys. That was the problem with rock music that they failed to get people to kind of wander former stock at people y- to Replace that. They had so much coming in from the west Towards the west it really does mean more like america would be purchasing uk. But yeah yeah thought that reminds me of the instant on the train which is like mostly is bracketed within the this didn't but you have this I guess he's in his fifties like he looks like he might be slightly drunk very kind of like cap worn Soviet go by like just haranguing some of the rockers. Who on the train. It looked like an like an electronic to me like a regional trade. It's not like a an going fall but he's just like yelling at them for being like gnome soviet. And it's like you're singing out enemies songs and it's kind of like whoa. The film is very explicit. About what dealing with this kind of saving union. That's fair of this culture coming from the west so very spelled out..

What would be the punishment if they were called like. I guess trying to make money from the jail for prison. Sentences could happen. I actually aquinas. Monica in the late Nineteen thousand nine. I think he used to work as you want. These kind of monotype figures. He was coach with some hot currency on. He was jailed for the seventeen so he was very much how From about nineteen about nineteen seventy. He was in prison. Yes so hard hard currency in the sense of like not rubles exactly yeah cool. That's so so interesting. I mean. I feel like we should probably talk a little bit more about soya and his background is the film will going to be watching. Today is a bio-pic about him called leto. Which is the russian word for summer from two thousand eighteen and directed by kiro sebring cough. We kind of talked a little bit about his career and like some of his activities but who was the band kind of where where he Yeah what was his background. Your ordinary standard. I think all of this saving Welcomed the ground these intellectual intellectual families. But so i wasn't. He was different because he was quite working class. Really his father was an engineering.

What i've never been out to find the footage but he you know he had these practical backgrounds which is quite sept. pop quashed loss. And the thing about him. That people do notice is the fact that he is his will. His father is korean ethnicity. Yes i was going to say it will definitely destroy people when when you see a photograph of him and you notice that soya's is not stereotypically russian sounding name. 'cause i don't think until i knew about soy. The even necessarily knew that there were many the koreans living in the soviet union's tool because oversee obviously north korea was in the soviet bloc but it was separate. It wasn't a soviet republic. So i didn't. I just didn't necessarily know that there would be population within the soviet union..

A Critique of Dallas Buyer's Club
"Let's. Let's Talk About Dallas Buyers Club. I first and foremost all the triggers. Goddamn because everything you thought you knew about this movie you were right and then there's more. There's The the TRANSPHOBIA is there from the characters. It's enacted characters but it's also just that kind of trans-phobia where it's tucked under. Oh, it's actually homophobia but that's because they don't know what to do with someone who presents in a way that is not stereotypical. To one gender or another. and. Yes. So look up triggers for this movie. There are so many that I don't even feel like sitting down and listing them but look them up before you continue to consume this podcast and before you decide to watch that movie. That said, had you either? Have you seen this movie before we went to the podcast first time? For a first time on that radio to. See what I did there. On brand very unbranded. Yeah. It was my first time too. I definitely knew it. As you said, for all the reasons that I knew, and then there were more reasons that I was glad I did until now. Oh Yeah so This movie I have to say because I tried to as much as I'm trashing it as much as I'm like Oh this all this I really wanted to like this movie I went in wanting to like it I remember talking to a friend about this movie because I refused to see it. So I was like, why are people praising jared leto wire people praising his portrayal of Now, I can't remember the name of Rayon why and I actually had to coax it out of a friend because. This was a friend that I respected their opinion on and they basically said they were like, well, you don't actually want to know you wanna be mad and it's like, no I respect your opinion i. am asking you why people care what is it about this helped me and what this friend said to me was that the portrayal of someone who is going through a having aids being HIV positive and then having AIDS, and then dying from another disease which. It, it was the thing that really drew this friend of mine into the character and into the world of this film and as much as. We are going to talk about a lot of the specifics now having watched it. I respect that opinion. Even though I did not get the same thing from this movie. At least from from Rayon and that's really mean I also did not grow up like I grew up as a child during the AIDS crisis I did not know a lot going on but at the same time. The movie in my opinion the movie itself. Didn't do a great job with ray on. But I really dug the way that they dealt with. Woodruff Matthew. mcconaughey character in the first act. Yeah To to. Put My cards on the table for we continue. To very specific misconceptions or like nervous conceptions but two very specific things that we're going to my mind when I started watching the movie. Deborah really softened a lot of it for me, which was one. The last movie that I've seen that was in relation to the AIDS crisis was the film adaptation of Rent. which was the worst movie that's life. I it's just. Sorry And the others conception is that I didn't realize that it was made in twenty thirteen I thought like watching it. It felt like it was like an early two thousands movie in house can be like well. Okay like Even. The Straits don't really get chanced stuff I. It was like a good attempts to try to like bring more color to the table metaphorically speaking. But it's a twenty thirteen. I don't know like. I mean at times article didn't come out yet. It's just it's just weirder and it's also like. That film strikes very early two thousands and I'm not like sinophile so I could be completely dead wrong on this, but it just felt. Like You know way older movie than it actually ended up being. So. And that. Up Sorry and then I guess the third conception. Sorry. The secret third one was that I actually was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because as soon as I found out that it was like historical like a history piece because runway was a real person. As like, Oh, well then you know if they had to deal with a real life trans person like they're they're dead in the water like you know they're not going to handle that well. But no round is is a real. She was made for the movie. So cool. Great. Love that for us. So. Yeah. I wonder because Silas one of the things that you had mentioned that you had focused on when talking about the movie was a lot more of a real life historical things that were going on and about the real life of what was happening. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yes so Aside, from knowing about, you know sort of the kerfluffle about jared leto playing the part and hearing a little bit about that when the movie came out the other thing that I really had a bee in my bonnet about is the fact that Ron Woodruff was not straight. And he did talk about long clearly had some stuff but. They just. Changed him to be straight and altered his character quite a bit and watching it. It's so clear to me that they were like, how do we make this the straight male hero anti hero type that the straight people will come see the movie for? And so that to me like before, we even get to any issues of transphobia homophobia of that in the Bi phobia that really just made me now it becomes this sort of like. The straight guy in the hero of a crisis that you know certainly straight people and all people belong to this lots of. It was but it was primarily focused on the queer. Community. And sort of start off before you even have a chance to give the film the benefit of the doubt with that erasure just really for me. Through me completely out of it it was I wasn't able to come to the film really with. A kind of the I at that point.

Cornball in New Orleans we focus on education that's the main focus here at Swirl I'm a consultant. I work throughout the city. This is one of my main stays. It's one of the places to work at because people come in You know for education for Great Selection Beth. The owner does a great job of selecting electing wines. That are Boutique Artisanal. That's what we focus on so we pour by the glass we retail shop so by the bottles well and a lot of seminars seminars. Which I've been part of Teaching some of the seminars as well so lot of educational efforts here. Did you ever think you'd be doing this. Show twenty years ago I was in D.. We see in politics. I got the hell out of After a very successful race but after that I worked in event management and With a company that was global so I traveled the world but wine and food and people were passion New Orleans is home Tom. I came back five years ago. So what was the inflection point. When did you decide? This is what I'm GONNA do honestly. I was was working on a yacht in in Europe for the company I worked with and I was planning. I planned this big event I loved wine at the time I was interested but when it became a passion and it just became an obsession with this one point out on the after the event the stewardess of the yacht came up and said. Would you like a glass of wine. I was exhausted ahead. You know planned all the travel arrangements for everybody participating summating everything from sunup to sundown and when she gave me a glass of Chardonnay. And I wanted to call bull I tasted it and it was burgundy which I knew the difference between American Chardonnay and and French Chardonnay. But that was the moment when I realized that even within one region lesion burgundy you can have so many different styles ones so at that point it became an obsession and a star trek to get certifications and be where I am today. She wanted take to be certified a lot of drinking a lot of tasting a lot of study. It's very very difficult to test a hard Certification and then I've been through the third level To go on to get your masters I've had colleagues. That have stopped stopped working because they need to study for several years years I decided to move back to New Orleans. My job as a master here would not be worth it. I would have have to go elsewhere so I haven't pursued the master level but I'm very happy with where I'm at but it's a Lotta work. It's it's a lot of studying a lot of work and I don't think most people realize realized you drink for a living. Well really I mean kind of but It's it's it's studying is intense. You give me an example apple of something that you doing recently that you thought this is exactly why I do what I do. I mean that's almost every day. I work in my environment when I introduced somebody to something that they he wouldn't have fathomed. You know people people nervous they. They are scared to say a lot of people are scared to say. They don't know a lot about why but they say oh well. I love of calves but as soon as I give them what I love to do is just give them a simple TESA. Tell me you like bold reds and give you a taste of something completely different that you know you haven't heard of just now. I just poured a pig near leto sparkling wine which is from Italy for somebody and then this. It's amazing how good you know but it's to give people that experience that says. Wow this is cool. You just opened my you know. I just opened their mind up to something something new and different and unique and for me. I go home happy end of the day if somebody's had a unique experience because that's how am I passed. That's how I got started. I had a unique experience experience on a yacht. I like when people leave with a unique experience. I can go home and sleep. You really truly a teacher. I am an educator. I love a love. Educating three characteristics that really important in your business would've three skill sets. Maybe passion is number one because the money is not in this job. There's no there's a lot of money passionate number one number two is Yeah Culture and people and I feel like I'm from New Orleans is a lot of culture in my town in my blood but the the culture what I'm talking about when I say culture culture is the storytelling behind the ones. I think that's so important. It's not about like you said it's not about the technical. It's not about you. How long were the groups mass reading on the skins or how much Mala lactic fermentation to get through? Its you talk about the families and the people behind these wines. I I like stories. That's more of a selling point than the technical data in any level of understanding at my level. You know I appreciate it. Why less because of technical nickel data more because of the story and what? I'm tasting the experience of that moment to read to absolutely being in this industry for a long time and in different states and working in different positions from either selling wine or buying wine and working with customers. A lot of people. Ask me well. What's your favorite wine? which should I drink today tonight? which should I order woods. The best wine. What's the best pairing? My my first question is what do you typically like a woody in the mood for because if I give them my favorite everybody's different so you have to read people so you have to kind of almost dissect their pallet before you recommend to Just more on the kind of job side of things now. You mentioned that in order to go to the higher level. You'd probably have to move from New Orleans but your choice desires to stay here in your hometown so to speak so she wouldn't look mean to you. Workers Important obviously but family in culture very important to so for me. It's finding the balance between my work. My Passion my family culture. That's what working in Sydney. You're you're following it. It's not even just passion. What I often hear from people is that this is my gift on very good? I think I am. I've I've been told that but yes I it's not just passion you have to have maybe a gift or an act but I think that that gift. Your Napkin come with passion. You know you can develop that when you have the passion to develop it and mindedness Chris above until you work before in Washington and you've moved on and you've worked on that boat and you we're putting together planning for Party is now the some a and you have another job that you do as well to to make ends meet here. Yeah so what What have you learned about About yourself and the world around you in in the world of work shall we say and I have learned that that I love experiencing other people in other cultures but also a to be very open to opportunities and that has gotten me along way because there is some opportunities that came. They were presented to me that I I almost feared I've learned not to be fearful and if you if you can't get beyond that you can't be successful and you have to fail and fail and fail before you can be successful or feel like you're good and successful what you do Systems to your canoeist yes absolutely persistence. And yes and creativity to make ends meet. And I've hit rock bottom autumn and I've failed and I've you know lived in cars and sofas and couches and I had a great job in my twenties and I left it all from my passion. And what advice do you give to. For example young women were looking for the world of work looking forward to that. Follow your dreams. Don't let let fear get away and they very open to opportunities even if you don't think it's the right
"Going to be a podcast her everyone laughed at me well no one's laughing now and Stewart and this is the host who always has negative thoughts Jacob joker a movie that I could not believe have the height around it that it did I can't recall the last time a superhero film was Ben so polarizing I mean people worried about shootings in theaters people saying Joaquin deserves an Oscar yeah it was all over the place coming out of Toronto Oh this is going to be the film of the year it's going to get all the Oscars and then Todd Phillips director opens his mouth and got a lot of backlash for what he thought we're comedy was these days yet all the place with this film that said I got to say this one took me by surprise I assumed that DC was in free fall. I mean we have all commented on how their output has been inconsistent can we all agree at best putting it nicely right that they have not had the scene unless nece that the Marvel Universe has been able to bestow on all of their works when I heard they were doing a one off joker movie I was like that sounds like a bad idea story are you getting those marvel paycheck saying they're in free fall I mean wonder woman made one of a billion dollars off man made a billion dollars what kind of free was that will somebody say well I don't care what the hardcore people think the truth of the matter is a lot of their movies have stone DOC and they've not consistent the fact that we have a one of joker movie this joker that we're told will never appear with Batman what the hell are they doing marvel would never do that is what I guess I would say sure but I don't mind that like what is the best spider man film Spiderman entered the spider verse like that is not connection to the m. c. you or what Sony is doing with Tom Allen's spider manoeuvres etta any of that so I don't mind a one off if you can just pull off a good movie I don't care if it's in any kind of continuity villain standalone movies making a Superhero movie without a superhero has not been something I've thought has worked before I mean Holly Aries cat-woman Tom Hardy thinom they could never figure out how to do sinister of six I mean you could even probably throw the Star Wars prequels into that concept having the super villain story told without a counterpoint of heroism where's our entry point who are we supposed to be with and what are they going to accomplish the you mentioned marvel I think that DC here is taking a cue from Marvel's newest acquisition Fox Todd Phillips talked about how it took a lot of convincing at Warner Brothers to let him do an R. rated joker movie but that was the only thing he was pitching and he's literally hearing responses from Warner brothers like we sell joker pajamas at target what are you going to do to our character that might hurt Pyjama sales and look at the roads that deadpool paved and I think even more specifically logan going more dramatic and being R. rated you can't beat marveled by playing Marvin those game the way you beat marvelous by making your own Fox did that and nobody is even see new mutants because nobody knows what to do with it again the X. Men horror movie yeah they've experimented sometimes those experiments have been successful I'm just saying approaching this project hearing the we're going to do a one off film about the region of joker seemed like a waste of time I was not excited about this movie at all until I saw the trailer Yeah Al admit I mean after seeing what happened to jared Leto in jokers role in suicide squad. We'll see at that movie he doesn't think he was in that movie enough he's got a scene it was not overly excited to see what they would do with joker now what I will say is somewhere at this very moment jared Leto has pissed Yeah Joaquin Phoenix get attached this because that's what I would have gotten excited you know he's one of those actors like Tom Hardy who's like a Nicholas cage who is just going to make some decisions and go with them they could be czar. They could be captivating like that trailer yeah they really tapped into Martin Scorsese in that taxi driver field but I was even more excited about Joaquin Phoenix playing this role and should be pointed out he is the man that would be doctor strange he has quartered comic book movies before and walked away saying this is not really for me why do this one he was also offered the role of Bruce Banner the reason he didn't do them he didn't WanNa sign multi picture contracts he didn't want to do what Chris Evans and Robert Downey junior did where the next seven years of your life you're working basically as a day player for marvel here it's a one picture deal and the ways they got him on board for this one it was Todd Phillips again Joaquin was connected from the very beginning and the Pitch Phillips gave him is we're going to make a real movie but we're going to get warner brothers to fifty million dollars for it by calling it fucking joker yeah how did Todd Phillips and doing this because I've seen a lot of his films old cool that hangover trilogy these are not things that I associate with a Gritty New York Scorsese style film you saying that and coach when I look at this filmography I hadn't seen most of what he meant. Yeah they're bad comedies well he makes kind of comedy I don't patronize the I'm not ever interested in watching skin hutch that's just not something I'm going to see I did see war dogs which I actually thought it was a little underrated I thought it was pretty good it's okay yeah kind of fell apart at the end yeah thought it was decent as well and it was four dogs that actually got this happening as he was at an early screening of war dogs with Warner brothers and realize is is exact phrase was war dogs wasn't going to set the world on fire as so he started talking to Warner about what could we make that's going to really get attention and do a little bit more be a little more provocative look way down on his resume his first film and you might actually see why he really got the Gig I was doc I didn't realize I had always heard about this documentary about the punk icon singer G- yeah I did not know top Phillips did that I have seen it ooh those are some live performances you wanna be careful with he strips down throws a species tough stuff to watch yeah I watched the movie I was like Oh I've always wanted to see it this gives me an lent reason it may be the closest of all his films to joker it begins with an actual endorsement from John Wayne Gay see another killer clown so yeah brutal I don't know that I'm telling people I recommend that experience be prepared I don't say this lightly it is very punishing it is very hard set is provocative and ways a lot of people probably want appreciate but you can't see a director who's very much trying to confront a freak entertainer and I do think at a core G G Allen and joker are two sides of the same coin so I would be interested to see a guy that came from punk rock bring a punk rock aesthetic to of joker movie if we must Gotcha Joker Origin Story. I WanNa say though I'm hesitant because I mean I always liked the way Keith Ledger played it how did I get my scars there's a danger and telling US definitively how joker came to exist right. There's something about the mystery we want to leave I've always liked the mystery the funny thing and you can go back to books and Nachos where in our talks about the killing joke written by Alan Moore the joker says I always change my story but here's the version I'm going to tell of my own gin and they tell an origin story and then just as origin story we're just GonNa make that the real thing but yeah I've always preferred him to be like Batman rewritten so obsessed with origin Martha Thomas Wayne Getting Killed and the pearls and walking out Zora all of that that has been told so many times joker being the opposite of Batman I liked that you just this mysterious chaotic clown figure that comes out of nowhere yeah I've definitely was thinking the killing joke when watching this and how it took elements of that in that Comic Book Joker was a failed stand up comedian who was kind of down on his luck in a rundown older Gotham city but I came in I think we might be seeing virtually and adaptation of the killing joke minus all the Batman stuff no they definitely go in a different direction with this but it gave them a good starting point and joker said he likes his origin story to be multiple choice. DC is having both ways they're gonNa make their continuity multiple choice switch movies do you want and continuity go ahead that's weird for me that we're seeing something that I should not think of as a comic book movies essentially what they're telling me don't worry I'll have nothing to do with Zam Aquaman wonder woman and all of that I mean did they even have that DC logo they have that old school Warner Brothers logo show up no DC logo okay and yet I mean it's not just your average comic book movies this movie's doing bigger than a lot of films I mean it's opening bigger than the average thor film it's maybe not topped here it's not spiderman but I'm not really it's no atman though it's beaten that man right yeah this is going to have a ninety million joining in the US. The biggest October release of all time is it Halloween in the mood for something kind of scary after it we want another killer oh but it's shocking to me the box office for what essentially feels a little art film is so huge and that it's rated R. You can't get teenagers in which is where marvel makes its money is they are aiming specifically at thirteen to seventeen year old market with their PG thirteen films and yes adults can like it in younger kids can like it but they're keeping that content for a rated R. Film in an error where in my experience it's much harder for young people to get into a rated R. Film that it made this much money is shocking to me I expected it to do well I didn't expect it to break venoms record

Trucking Industry Looks To Women To Help Alleviate Driver Shortage

Learn more at AWS is how dot com slash podcast. The trucking industry is changing massive driver shortages are forcing trucking companies to think differently about who can drive big rigs in the second of two stories. Frank Morris of member station. K C U R reports on how the industry is trying to recruit more women and younger people. Packed gravel what you're sprawling truckstop in southwest Iowa. Ellie? Oh, dear has found a place to park re truck for the night at twenty nine she's more than a quarter century younger than the average truck. Drivers fifty five. She's also part of a transformation in trucking this industry needs people that can adapt to the way it's changing because this industry is changing very rapidly. And it's going to change a lot from where it is right now over the next few years who is a transgender woman. She likes the solitude loves the constant travel and embraces the folding technology trucking, I got into it in the most millennial way possible. I was playing too many video games a trucking game letter with questions about real life trucking, which eventually Leto dare to a recruiter for Wilson, logistics in Springfield, Missouri. Where Darroll Wilson is president and CEO twenty years ago twenty five years ago who trained to somebody we look for good old farm boy. Right. And he drove tractors. He drove straight trucks. He came in. We gave them the training. He went made a trip. With another driver and he's off on his own. And it was okay. But that was then now the trucking industry short about sixty thousand drivers number that could double in ten years as baby boomers retire. So companies like Wilson's are developing. Alluring websites and have recruiters working the phones all day long, cajoling perspective employees to sign on like many, others Wilson provides free training to new hires like Angela Thornton. So more women are coming into the fill more diverse population. So starting to become more flexible immoral welcoming, women alone could fix the driver shortage. They now represent only eight percent of long-haul drivers. And there are reasons for that lots of truckers spend days sometimes weeks on the road sleeping in their trucks. Tethered to truck stops for food and restrooms. Threatened says many women are wary of truck stops safety concerns, especially if you are solo female driver, a lot of women are also still raising their families. So they need to be home. Our safety is the biggest concern women drivers. Have according to Ellen foia. President of the group women in trucking. We look at truck stops on lighting and fencing and reporting to them Chuck's upset are not safe, boys. Simple can companies are old ring routes to get drivers home more frequently and even springing for hotel rooms instead of expecting drivers to sleep in their trucks. She says it's worth it. Her data show that women drivers stay with their companies longer and drive more miles. And since most drivers get paid primarily by the mile women often make more money than men Boya says the percentage of women truck drivers has roughly doubled in the last decade. I think you're going to see the numbers increased dramatically in the next five years, the long haul trucking industry also wants to chance to hire people right out of high school companies are backing a plan to ease federal restrictions and allow eighteen year olds to drive semis. Across state lines. Meantime technologies making truck safer and easier to drive new ones are increasingly automated. Some don't require shifting onboard systems. Watch the lanes and can even apply the brakes technology also plays a. Big brother role allowing companies to closely monitor their drivers schedules. CEO Darroll Wilson says some older veteran drivers chafe at the new safety. Features and restrictions. He needs drivers who embrace them like Elliott air. She buys into our safety technology doesn't bucket. She's happy to drive their fifty eight to sixty mile an hour and get good fuel economy and be safe. And so yes, I think as technology changes the folks that appeals to change and our face changes dare figures that atonomy trucks will eventually ease. The driver shortage though with our gaming skills. She sees a possible job for self driving several trucks at a time remotely video game style. For NPR news. I'm Frank Morrison.

"And you saw the joker their hippie. So fucking baller. They have the what is the there's the purple amber Gainey song, Rick Ross and skirl ex that video music video. Scroll IX Jared Leto joker are in a strip club. Rick ross. Yeah. It ends with them on a boat together. Just makes me think how pimp it'd be to hang out with the joker, dude. Yeah. That'd be cool. You just can't stop thinking about going to strip club and jokers in there in the corner throwing money. He's a big stack of money. He's burning while he's throwing strippers. Okay. But it's not like a strip club strip club. It's one of those cool ones. That's like have like classy, and like hipster because they oh, you know, instead of listening to rap music. They listen to the cure, and like the Smiths or whatever, and they lend Portland style like Portland. It's like cool to go to it. You know, it's like they don't play rap music. It's like for because they classy muse classy music like it's this. Yeah. One of those strip clubs where you're not going to there's no Tim's allowed. Yeah. Yeah. They have a policy on backwards hats. Yeah. You walk in the no baggage, gene. That's so one of those bugged up things I was like we had drinks last night at one of those like a place like that where it's like a strip club. That's not like, it's like socially. Okay, go there. And it was like joker. Yeah. Me and the joker were there. And it's like, you know, it's a respectable one. Where it's it's not like fully, nude or whatever. Yeah. But yeah, I was thinking in there. I'm like the only difference between this and the regular strip clubs day is like listen to white people Isic, right? That's all it is dancing to like taking back Sunday or fucking whatever. That sounds. Lame super lame. Sounds bad. Yeah. One of the one of those strip clubs where it's less about swag and more about cloudy. Remember there was a phase where people are into going to burlesque clubs. Oh, right. That was another things yet burlesque is it's like stripping except they're ugly. That's like that's the whole thing about burlesque is like, yeah. What if what if strippers were ugly? Yeah. What if strippers were like ugly, and they had bangs and you didn't see anything. Well, that was a little phase that was like a. There was a period of time for like two years where you would have one friend that would try to convince you that you should go to burlesque club with them because it's actually really dope. Let's go. Let's go see burlesque into get soft. Yeah. No, dude is fucking awesome. It's like it's not like a strip club. You know? 'cause instead of you know, like, they they danced to INTERPOL like this one girl dance to INTERPOL song and another one does like a modest mouse routine show, and it super cool, and yeah, you should come nude. It's fucking dope. Anyway, I've given them thousands of dollars of all my. Spent all my money there. You don't even they. Oh, don't they put the like tassels on red? Yeah. The pasties. I don't want to like, we're anti strippers. We're pro. I'm literally pro real strip clubs died. I think that's apparent with. What I've what I've. Yeah. It's weird Bieber. That there exist alternative that's like, oh, this is a better not classy version. Yeah. Because we're not playing songs I wanna see an entire of Jonah. I want to want to hear rap music and see one remembered something really funny this. Okay. So last night. I was reminded. I've mentioned working on that judge Mathis show, and Gary, Indiana, which was one of the experience of my life. I wear a bulletproof vest every he'd never came never came out. We were like risk our lives like going up to gang members. Like, hey, you wanna snitch on a murder to judge Mathis? But the man who is only handled small-claims for year. Yeah. All of a sudden putting to very real crime. But the most of the time we I mean, we shot this in the winter, and Gary, Indiana, it's basically Chicago but much more dangerous. But I remember to guy this cop because we had a few cops working on the show when like in the show, helping them investigate and when Sir Jack Wagner, well, this one that I befriended in a weird way. His name was a lotto..
