And they were particularly concerned that he was this powerful, charismatic figure who had the ability to mobilize people.

Welcome jackets. Good to have you here. Thank you Robert. Appreciate that glad to be here. You've kind of an entire industry that's really come to be known as performance air conditioning. Vintage Air was founded longtime ago now in nineteen seventy six primarily to serve builders who wanted to bill. Really Cool. Hot Rods Right. Talk about how you got to where you are I. Understand you started rich and early age well, yes. I started reading a hot rod magazine and it was hot rod magazine, an Rod and custom which were once at the time that everybody was reading. It had got me interested in old cars and I was about probably thirteen isn't it? Funny? We're in it always starts Yeah. Well thirteen years old I think so long story short my mom my dad was an air force and he was at this particular time was overseas along so she would take me out looking for old cars driving around we drove by one old junkyard that had some pretty nice cars and for Junkyard, and there was a little Mali sedan sitting right there and so. With that one and that started it really which pay fifty bucks hundred bucks for no one hundred dollars ran and drove off. There's a lot of must have been a nice car. It was decent in Iran in my mom felt that was important. So she said that'd be good one it actually Lebron's than I thought well, mode will be in their law anyway but. What did you put in that thing? Jag. Let Me Guess Flathead v Eight maybe something like that. Yeah. The first walk was a mercury by then the mercury and the flatheads kind of really on their last legs so cheap and a guy out of Mercury, my dad and military, and so I could go out to the base hobby shop at work on it therapies they have the tools and equipment wilmer stuff anyway he was out there and he was pulling that thing out and he was gonna put an old set I'm looking at that thing going he san now I gotta get rid of this thing and I'm going hey, wait a second I ask him what he'd takes Twenty. Five Bucks for so. Two fifty, five key begins Mercury, flat. It sounds like deal and boy that was the bee's knees back. Then there really was water fun car that must have been what happened after those formative years he did some college worker well. And as going along I kept working on our of data as we went along than mercury got lost and I put a pontiac over at bow the eight. Okay. Okay. And I use that to go to school I drove that car was my only car and so yeah I, I went to school studied industrial design. Guy Down College it was Vietnam era so. I joined ROTC after I got out of college I went right into the air force that was pretty ambitious endeavor especially at the time you fly planes her through for a little bit and then I did other stuff when emir force well, it sounds like an interesting stint obviously got out your passion for hot rods did not diminish in the lease no it. Always Hot Rod Guy, was there an a Ha moment that you had that said, he wait a minute I'm going to get serious about this. Well, when I got out of the Air Force, I had to make a decision. I think a lot of people that go in the air force consider staining and making a career out of thought about that for just a second and pretty much decided that I wanted to do. It always wanted to do I told my mom when I was about thirteen or fourteen. I told her not WANNA build parts for Cars I decided. Well, if I wanted to do that, this long should stick with that I started looking around. What can I do at that point? Pete shakes had started a year before that. There was a couple of chassis guys out there now and I've thought well I don't want to go jump in the middle something someone is already doing so look can I do that's new made any backup just a second I had started an air conditioning repair installation sinner right after I got out of the Service in seventy three head that stuff laying around so I thought hey, street rod nationals coming up here in August August load up the van take a bunch of stuff up there and made three unique parts to have up there for that deal were no condensers at that time in the condenser is the part that goes in front of the radiate sure that support that takes up space and. A hot rod that could be a sore thumb and of course, in those days, it was all about thirty four. It's some people would say it's still. Also, we'll get to that I designed and had a company make me condenser company up in Minnesota. Make me a condenser that was vertical so it would fit that format because there was nothing like that available number one that's right that narrow narrow grill and the yeah it had to fit just right? Yeah. There were narrow ones but they laid down the width of the cars that were going on now. That's right. So we did that and then nine designed a compressor mounting bracket for a small black Chevy because there were more sponsorship, he's going in at that time anything else. So the hoods were narrow on hot rod so it couldn't hang out sides like they did in the newer cars. So that was the second thing we did that bracket and then the third thing we did is I made a mold. been working with my hands long enough that I just figured hands I can make them all and I can make my own plastic evaporator out in. That's right and put the coralline and I'll have a unique evaporator to fit of thirty, two
Milton Glaser | Make Things That Move People
"So over the history of this show spending eight years more than five hundred guests. Two years filming on location and crew, and now more than six years is a podcast. I have been asked one question over and over and over. So who's your favorite guest so when you do what I do, you learn quickly to dodge the answer to that question for one. You can't win for any name. He dare to offer your simultaneously snubbing hundreds, and if I'm blessed to keep doing this long enough thousands of other people, but more importantly. If you're really paying attention, truthfully, there is no such thing as a favorite guest. Guest I don't do this to be entertained or to fall in love or to make new friends or to have favorites I do because I love doing it, and because it's a bit like my living laboratory, it's it's not about who I liked best, but rather who I have learned from WHO has left changed and on that level would have come to believe as you learn something if you allow yourself to remain open from every single person. As it is on screen. Has It is in front of a Mike in Studio on the? So it is in life. But as I sit here today. Having just learned of the passing of a man who has become as our producer, Lindsay often reminds me. The single most referenced guest by me. In the history of the show Milton Glaser. I can admit to one truth over the same span of time much as I have been profoundly inspired and humbled and awakened, and learn more than any book or school or course of study has taught me. There have been very few guests. Who when they walked out. The door left me thinking to myself. I live their life. Milton glaser was at the top of this very short list born and raised in the Bronx. He discovered what would become his life's work, and never in his eighty five or so years of. Building on that veered from it to make things that move people those are the words he shared with me. As soon as These words were offered in that classic Glazer Rasp. I can feel every cell in my body. Come alive with resonance me, too. I felt me to. My whole body just saying with recognition and resonance. Me To Milton me to. Glazer's list of accomplishments in the world of design and media and education, the stuff of legends launching a design agency push pin studios in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four with a bunch of friends who he graduated, Cooper Union with he would change the face of commercial illustration of art and design that famed Iheart. Logo Did that a tribute to the city. He loved so fiercely at a time when it was on the verge of bankruptcy of crumbling underneath him, Glazer wanted to do his part to help people. Re Imagine it to see the way he knew it to be the way it was in his heart, which probably explains why he was also a founder of York magazine that iconic Bob Dylan Rainbow Hair poster with more than six million copies in print glazer again. Thousands of other works of art posters, brands product packaging restaurants. You name it. Glazer was behind so much of it and Milton's work he it's been seen everywhere from the halls of global industry to local pub to. The Museum of modern. Art in New York City the George Pompidou Centre. In Paris in two thousand four. He received the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum Lifetime Achievement Award. He received the National Medal of Arts Award from President Obama in two, thousand, nine, the first graphic designer ever to be given dishonor. The man had his own typeface Glaser Stencil. That, brilliant mind and the artful hand, and the impact that they would have didn't stop at making, though he also taught for more than five decades, he shared his wisdom his lens on everything from life to art to beauty to work to love with thousands of students, many of whom have now gone out into the world to make their own lasting marks, and it wasn't just this diversion to craft to making meaning to the creation of an noticing of beauty to his commitment to teaching and giving back to the work. It was the choices that he made about who and what matter to him. The deep sustained commitment to living life on his terms, and never allowing himself to be boxed into anyone else's expectations in any domain of life to working and playing and spending time with his wife Shirley who he wed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, seven, and to whom he remained married until the day he died at age ninety one.

The Latest Science of Growth Mindset
"Today. It's a real honor to have. Carol Dwell on the PODCAST. Dr Deck is a leading researcher in the field of motivation and is the loose in Virginia. Eaton professor of psychology at Stanford. Her research examines the rule of mindsets and personal achievement and organizational effectiveness. Dr Dewick has also held professorships at Columbia and Harvard. University's has lectured to education business. Sports groups around the world has addressed. The United Nations has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences and as one twelve lifetime achievement awards for her research her bestselling book mindset has been widely influential has been translated into over twenty five languages. Dr Dick so great to chat with you today. Scott it's great to chat with you. Oh boy there's so much to talk about. I was thinking about starting with your earliest. Our dissertation research because I remember two thousand three. I remember I was studying intelligence. I was reading a book. A really enjoyed reading of yours. It was one of these. It was an academic book. It was it was short. It was short and it and it went through. It didn't use the language mindsets. This is like back in the day. It was incremental versus entity right to also earliest research. Yeah I'd love to tell you about it when I was in graduate school. I was Kinda gripped by question on. Why did some kids shy away? From challenges and crumble at the first sign of failure while other kids know smarter or more able at the task seem to relish taking on challenges and thrive in the face of obstacles and pretty soon I found. The question was a little bit wrong. It wasn't just that some kids thrived WanNA challenge or cope with obstacles. I found out that some of the kids loved setbacks. They said things like I love a challenge. I was hoping this would be informative and I thought I'm giving them failure problems. And they're thinking this makes it worth their while. I couldn't relate to them at all. I thought they were from another pull on it and I thought I'm going to figure out their secret. I'M GONNA bottle it and I'm going to take a few healthy swigs of it myself because I thought I have a lot to learn from these ten year old kids. That's how I got started on this research. So sounds like the original observation was more a behavioral finding than a cognitive mindset. Finding the way you described it. That's so interesting. I wanted to figure out the cognitive underpinnings of it and my reason was personally relevant. I sixth grade teacher. I kind of figured this out later that it was niece as we say me surge. Notches Research Gus. Let's all do. Yeah and I recommend it. 'cause you never get enough of it. Nice Sixth Grade Teacher had seated around the room in. I Chew Order. We were already the tab I q class in the sixth grade of five classes and yet she thought every cube point was monumentally. Important in non only telling you a how smart you are but whether you had good character could be trusted and essentially what you were worth in. Her is bending the whole year in that classroom. Iowa's really influence. Now you might think Oh I felt downtrodden and unappreciated. Now I was in the first grow I seat. You would think at all. I one that I q prize. As I looked back I realized I never wanted challenges again and I arranged my life to be purely successful not to topple from my height so I wanted to figure out what goes on in people's minds that can allow them to risk taking on challenges and that can give them the fortitude to keep going when things seemed rough. It's such a great question. An important question. I was the opposite I was. I was in special education as a kid. I don't know if I told you that For an auditory in auditory processing disability. So people thought I was really slow swarner because I was having trouble hearing things in real time and sort of the. The impact of expectations can can certainly have an effect on on mindsets. I'm sure and the way we think about things. I'm wondering when did the shift from entity and incremental become fixed versus growth? And that was when I wrote the Book Mindset. I realized nobody can remember entity in Incremental Idaho Central Myself. They couldn't remember anti G. and they couldn't remember an incremental so when I came to write the book mindset I said well I have to find some more user friendly terms but kind of a prior question is how if we just call it. Mining sits now have. How did we get to the point of thinking? That mindsets could play a role obsolete. I asked us because correct me. If I'm wrong. But wasn't entity and incremental. They were called beliefs. It in your language your original language their beliefs not mindset. Is that right? Yeah but I kinda mean the same saying okay. Yeah in my earliest work. I looked at attributions. Kids made for their successes and failures. Did they think the failure measured their ability or did they think the failure manned try a new strategy seek advise? Just keep going but eventually we said why does failure have such a negative meaning for some kids and kind of an informative me meaning for other kids and in the early nineteen eighties working with Mary? Bandera Alexandra's daughter was going to ask. We suddenly realized you know when you think you're being measured and that judgment is really important. Doesn't the kind of imply that you had this extinct? That's being judged and if you think it's just a a failure is is is just a clue for changing your strategy or trying harder or getting input and then learning more. Doesn't that kind of imply that you sink? Your ability can be developed and suddenly. We looked to at each other and just bowled over. What is people have fundamentally different ideas about intelligence and they're carting them around with them and it's affecting how they view challenges how they view setbacks. Wow there was no stopping us. At that point.

So you founded the Denver Urban Spectrum newspaper Nineteen eighty-seven tell us about the story and how the seeds were planted for the newspaper. You know it's funny that you would say how the seeds were planted. Because I always start that off when I talked to When I when people ask me that question and I refer to them I refer to it because my from my two partners that helped start the publication thirty four years ago. I was approached by Robert Stewart. Who actually in it? I think he was working in the computer systems and here approached me and said he was looking for I think he's looking for a graphic designer and I've always had a graphic design studio. Were worked in that worked in that field for many years and And I still do I still do as a matter of fact. I'm fortunate that I've been working on the publication in that area. Also as in addition to the publisher but I was doing freelance Moguls business cards stationery menu Annual reports and you know he asked around the community and several people say well he would be harassed anyway we met talked about the publication and I asked him I said well. Can you go and get Working on the business planning come back and see me and he said okay. So I don't know must have been three. Maybe six months went by and then I got another. I got another call from Ron. Still and he's a photo journalist. He's the timeframe and he wanted to start a publications like knock on my head again Publication keeps coming my way and so after I talked with him. I said well Ron. Let's go see Robert and see how business plan is going and called Robert and we met. I called them and actually he just said Oh. I forgot all about that publication. It's like shame on you so anyway we got together. The three of us get together and talk about it and We went out and I went to a printer in and found out that to print publication. It's going to be about eleven hundred in two thousand eleven hundred dollars to print publication small publication twelve pages and so we went out to get about eleven hundred and two dollars worth of advertising temperate. This announced the coverage is to get that first one going and so after that you know Ron still in A. He's Oh God that was too much work for me. So he said he wants to be a photo journalism. I think he went to the Indianapolis Star. So Robert Nigh continued it on but I always say that Robert Plant the seed then run feel came and he kind of water did and I'm I'm out of there so all I can say is the rest is history and then going on for thirty four years. Now that's Awesome. And and what was your drive. What was your. Why did you want to create this? What's interesting because I was a graphic designer My wife was just really kind of support the community. We didn't have Where there were a couple of other publications and you know there's a couple of two round but I think there was a need for the communities of Color and I think our perspective with just a little bit different we We actually Stirred the focus was on women who Latino Women African American Women Asian and native American but That was on women initially the first the first year actually the first year we did a story on. Oh Gosh you know. They were Dell a bad wound. She was a native American community. There was one who I don't even nephews women where they are. Today she was Asian We K- you the OH Gosh okay Florence Hernandez Komo's will also be the story on Cleo Parker Robinson worried cover stories And they were phenomenal.

And there was a fire we There's a fire in our building and we lost a lot of material some of the original artwork. Kinda change the focus but the other thing too. You know a kind of evolved more to the African American community because the Asian community had you know they they. I'm sure they still do have a lot of publications in Hispanic Community A Lotta publications. Also so they kind of evolved to the African American community over the years. Okay awesome awesome and as you were dimming. So is this something that you dreamed about was something that just happened to unfold for you. I did not dream about it. You know and you're right.

Kirk Douglas, Towering Icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Dies at 103
"So that's from the nineteen sixty film Spartacus it's Kirk Douglas in one of the best known scenes of his long Hollywood career Kirk Douglas died yesterday at the remarkable age of a hundred and three throughout the fifties and sixties he embodied a certain romantic idea of Old World masculinity in his films he often made movies about cowboys and soldiers prize fighters and rebels his most famous movie was Spartacus but the movie that made him a Hollywood star with the nineteen forty nine boxing movie champion the person he was in real life often mirrored the tough man that he portrayed on screen Kirk Douglas had a difficult childhood he grew up in New York in extreme poverty he actually was a wrestler and spent time in the navy before his success on Broadway he later went on to make movies that now define the era of Hollywood classics in nineteen eighty one Kirk Douglas received the presidential medal of freedom and fifteen years later he earned an honorary Oscar for lifetime achievement Jason Gorder he's a movie critic and a big fan of Kirk Douglas is work and he's here to reflect on the actors impact on the film world to chase and thanks for being here my pleasure and honor to speak about this giant of talent what do you think when you think Kirk Douglas I think somebody that helped change what we think of of modern cinema frankly he's he bridge is very much the gap between sort of the traditional Hollywood leading man that's sort of you know the beautiful dimple in the middle of his chin the incredible physique a sort of sense that we had of the strong man the strong big actor but is also somebody that brought a great deal sensitivity to his character system the steps two wasn't simply a matinee idol who somebody that sort of brought through his performance a dramatic richness that would we'd be exhibited in many of his contemporaries people like Burt Lancaster but also into people like Marlon Brando who get celebrations and more but he also brought a very political a sophisticated political angle to his films he somebody that absolutely shifted the conversation but what it was like to be a performer not simply studio tool but somebody that could take charge of his own career and shift at and that's when the look of the great things that he did everything that we saw after the fact of of these performers that are able to shape their careers much more explicit way he was a pioneer on that front would you consider that is greatest contribution or what for you just it gleams above all the rest I mean for me my personal connection or to serve master pieces which are the films that he did with Kubrick puzzle glory was a film that nobody wanted to make nobody wanted to make this sort of anti war sophisticated look at World War one it was sort of it was a war that nobody was particularly interested in such a grisly film that about moral ambivalence that wasn't really to be taken up and he and his production company Brina named after his mother foster got the money together now a great deal the budget went towards him but nonetheless he gave a shot to this this quirky New York filmmaker called Stanley Kubrick an fifty seven nineteen sixty while he was doing Spartacus the other our grand collaboration there's another director and after a week Douglas realize this is not going to work and he brought in correct now that the dynamic between the two of them was a little tenuous but none the less he brought this to start the superstar director to one of the sort of last big epic Hollywood cast of thousands films and still injected with the with this real subtlety and real intelligence of performance and finally with Spartacus again the connection Douglas Trumbull is it was Kirk Douglas who unapologetically said this blacklisted armed writer is going to get credit actually John F. Kennedy cross the picket line in order to see Spartacus this is what broke the blacklist the famous arms those that were accused of being communists so in so many ways I Kirk Douglas of star power was used for good he was used to bring stories to screen that would have been brought otherwise he brought directors that otherwise Hollywood didn't think that were I'm sufficiently commercial and you brought to light the hypocrisy of actually bring these writers to to dream if for the if you only watch two forms of Kirk Douglas these are ones actually fully sober in you know a lot of people will be doing that tonight I want to play you a clip from almost thirty years ago no looking back I realize I was much more successful when I forgot about being a hit for years I proclaim loudly that a movie must be good entertainment no messages for me but I've changed it must in some small way touch improve humanity that was Kirk Douglas accepting a lifetime achievement award from the American film institute and you can hear that Douglas was ingesting this chiseled jaw line or a typical Hollywood celebrity of the era is like you say he was a man of principle and you're quite cranky I hear that a lot of people didn't get along with him but is that how he will be remembered do you think is a man of principle was incredibly philanthropic and and again his story is fascinating he has for his father was a smart the dealer a rag command in upstate New York came from nothing I'm dealt with severe anti semitism the sun changes name sort of inculcates himself into Hollywood as a sort of brash fully American leading man from that he saw the the division between high and low and he really took that film trophic spirit that's that moral spirit the moral conviction through his career what a hundred three is a long time to live but he lived a very very full life and I believe when he was getting at AFI award he had just been in a tragic helicopter accident then here he is again I'm coming to the fore because he was called his performance he was there to actually have the signs that he also had a stroke he's kind of had nine lives and his son Michael Douglas was watching all of this and he's an acting icon in his own right do you think that that what is it from Kirk Douglas that you see that Michael Douglas has it has in him I mean I've said the drive the conviction but of the the big deal is that once a problem OR one flew over the cuckoo's nest was a Kirk Douglas production he actually did the stage production he got the rights again he saw this very quirky very politically charged project his son would eventually produce the film in the Afghan Oscar glory because of that so so the the tradition certainly carries along with Michael Douglas but the I mean it's it's for for viewers who are not familiar with this film we just don't really have a Kirk Douglas anymore the system doesn't really work with that but we have certain people the Brad Pitt's of this world who are stars but also bringing in these films after their production so it's quite remarkable thank you so much Jason Jason is a film critic he joins us live in the studio to talk about the death of Hollywood actor Kirk Douglas who died yesterday at the age of a hundred

Michael I gotta tell you she believes she is the reincarnated Cleopatra hello Louise thank you for taking my column so excited thirty years ago I went to the Christmas temple in Los Angeles I don't know if it's still there but I went to a couple of the meetings I went to the dentist that they had after the meeting they also had an exhibit cruel for they so beautiful paintings of scenes from the monitors and the people in the in the blue cards now and it expects they're all still still there yeah me ask me where it was located I couldn't remember because it was so long ago but I was so comfortable with the people and it was just a beautiful experience and I still have the Bhagavad Gita book which I studied diligently and they told me so many things this was thirty years ago before many ideas that are out now were being expounded back the Christmas people and it was just a great experience I'll never forget it and I still love the Bhagavad Gita because it has such beautiful nollie can keep things in it and I wanted to just let the guests know there I appreciate him given our ideas about the Christmas though the monolith the blue people under that is just something that the people of this world don't really know much about where are the Christians these days they used to be on every street corner well so I I don't know about every street corner I think you that they they but here here yeah and Los Angeles were and West Los Angeles Culver city area but some of this have gone on to coast to coast and into university news all over the world so it's but some some are still out there doing the chanting in the streets that still going on a sometimes I do it myself even Tom in la Hoya California hi Thomas George thank you for taking my call and Michael Premo it's a pleasure to speak to you you know you mentioned Albert Einstein reading the Indian scriptures but there were also other scientists Robert Oppenheimer who was the top scientist on the Manhattan Project right Rudin is memoirs that he developed the idea of atomic ignition by reading the vadis and then there was Francis says smocks playing you know who developed the idea of a matrix theory of the universe and Paul to route and it makes me wonder Michael one for more on a stand when you look at past civilizations really great civilizations like Atlanta so Maria move you know associated with India it seems like they didn't depend on computers or iPads or artificial intelligence they depended on the mastery of the mental arts meditation alchemy magic the law of attraction the wall of attention eles se limbic Packard you know speaks about and so I'm wondering and when you look at people like Bach devoted entre or Yogananda self realization or move to nine under the underling yard Sir the Karmapa of the Tibetan arts they all spoke about these previous civilizations centered around consciousness send the mastery of consciousness and so I'm wondering if you would speak well you have spoken about their but then it seems like these civilizations when you look at their temples why do you support so compactly tapi you know they talk about building them through mental intention to white and sound him through meditation and so it appears from where I'm standing you don't need users are artificial intelligence the computer is your mind in the mastery of the mental arts the mastery of meditation at central yeah I was wondering what it is I have to leave your absolutely totally wrong right about that in these ancient civilizations they were dealing with more subtle energies that were accustomed to dealing with today you're absolutely right about that as a matter of fact a lot of our modern technology I believe is our account to express is gross material form abilities that people once had naturally like remote viewing for example is invaded times it was called sewer dar shots the ability to see.
Awards Season: Oscar Nominations
"We have the golden globes recently today we get the critics choice awards tomorrow very early in the morning they will be announcing the academy award nominations so it's the awards season some times we can glean what will probably happen with the Academy Awards by what happens in the golden globes not always sometimes many times it's wall has been monitoring the critics choice awards and I think we should start there to see if maybe the critics choice awards are either going or falling in line with the golden globes or offering a different message if you will as far as what should be honored this year from first look the critics have got a much more on point and then lie with me then the glow okay let's go down some the category Best Actor yes Joaquin Phoenix for joker given that Best Actress Renee Zellweger for Judy yes best supporting actor Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood surprises there yep best supporting actress Laura Dern for marriage story he didn't see it heard was okay best young actor romaine Griffin Davis for the judge a rabid movie don't know if there are a lot of kids related films on there but Hey sure give it to him best acting ensemble the Irishman art is a good okay good let's look let's let's slow down and talk about that but what I don't know if they're put it this way is far as acting goes I was very underwhelmed by the Irishman I I really think people are more impressed by the names will histories and legacies of the people involved in the movie as opposed to the actual performances most people were saying that they really like the the understated performance of Joe Pesci yeah it was nice he didn't really cost a lot he didn't beat anyone with a baseball bat but as far as an acting performance I don't think was all that special I don't think Robert de Niro's performance as the Irishman was special it wasn't anything that I said wow that was vintage Robert Dinero it wasn't like there was any particular moment or monologue or passage the people will come away and say we're gonna be quoting that for years we can quote the godfather we can quote good fellas in an area casino what have you there wasn't really anything all that special quotable about the Irishman as far as the ensemble cast it was great to have all these big names together yeah but they had big names together in the Expendables did make it a great movie big names who were to gather it almost seemed like he was with one last ride together for these particular group of actors for this particular genre and I had heard all the hype in I'm a guy who loves the godfather yeah I'm a guy who loves casino and Goodfellas varying degrees but I loved the genre as a whole love the sopranos so that's something I I I know this genre I appreciate the genre when I saw the Irishman it was really weird it was weird what they did to Robert De Niro and his allies making them blue or whatever so he looked like the actual person it was not necessary they could have chosen a different actor if you're gonna do all that was extracting I did like the fact that it's so it's a movie based on real people real incidents in history and it almost quite like the have the story line and as real events happened it breaks away in the show you this person was actually killed by a bullet to the head nineteen seventy one or whatever and I'll show you a still frame of the actual crime scene or something like that that's something I enjoy it but as far as the acting performances there were not we talk about Star Wars hi Scott Walker same thing in the sense of there were no wow moments for me there was nothing which said to me is like wow I've never seen that before no they were getting killed by basically getting whacked like okay we seen people get whacked like this before because they've already told all those stories just changing the name to fictional people another movie so what we see the Irishman which is based on true events and everything not special I didn't think the performances were special that's not a number that are best acting ensemble right okay I would rather Avengers with that because as far as I'm concerned the acting by Robert Downey junior in Avengers in game was stellar okay well I mean look got it and maybe that's why Avengers in game got best action movie finally can best visual effects of got best animated feature is difficult yes yeah best costume design yes Ruthie Carter for dolomite is my name give it to him let's stop right there if you haven't seen dolomite is my name please see it isn't available on Netflix I think you will view Eddie Murphy in a whole different light a whole new light any have best comedy yeah I agree Eddie Murphy has not only reinvented himself but in this particular performance he's just an actor he's not telling jokes like a comedian he is embodying Rudy ray Moore someone completely different and it's telling you the story of how Rudy ray Moore had to reinvent himself from musician to stage performer two eight kind of comedian telling almost wraps stories on stage right right if you know the history and this is a quintessential LA movie in the sense of Rudy ray Moore is inextricably linked to the history of arts and entertainment in Los Angeles yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you will recognize the landmarks and everything and that is why eighty Murphy deservedly so also got the lifetime achievement award other film awards go to Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood no surprise a Best Director it was a tie Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen and bomb June hole for parasite can we just go ahead and assume given Hollywood's reaction and also the foreign correspondents reaction to nineteen seventeen that that's probably going to be best picture Best Actor definitely nominated tomorrow for the Oscar nominations yeah we'll probably will win and I say that for this reason for the foreign correspondents association for the golden globes to give nineteen seventeen best drama award what are the ward was and it had not even been released in theaters yet at that point bright I just said to me that it leaves the Hollywood portion critics correspondence whatever they pretty much made up their mind which says to me Hollywood as far as the voting academy members have pretty much made up their mind and they've probably already decided that this is going to be the movie I've heard nothing but superlatives about it I haven't seen it but I'm just reading the tea leaves it is going to get the nomination but I'm saying if I were to place any money nineteen seventy this Best Picture and Best Director just because of all these other indications I'm getting I agree totally agree best sci-fi or horror which is in an Oscar related category not to to my knowledge but us it's good thank I I I I saw the movie everything was great yeah so I'll be in Emma Jordan Peele fan but I did think the movie is great I do appreciate how he tells very different stories that's the story we haven't seen before I can I can watch it and say like wow that's something different is not the typical horror stories come to typical sci fi story has a little twist at the end is what he usually is going to do now is going to be known for that in the way that M. night Shyamalan is known for that I can appreciate what he does I just didn't think the movie was spectacular yeah but I don't know who would love you to hear it I don't know what was up again so when we come back we'll continue with these critics choice awards and also forecast possibly with coming tomorrow morning with the Oscar nominations this the

"Where you don't make you don't get to the saying you don't get a lifetime achievement award. I think Katie the honest lack why they write that win. Lebron? The Browns been the best player in NBA full along time. You don't get to keep it forever. And I think what you have seen in these play offs. You can say you depending on your flavor. I mean, just depending on your flavor, you could actually say one of these guys are or let's be realistic the way they're playing you say all three of those players are better than the brunt. And that's not a knock. I mean, I watch these guys for the last two weeks. And I'm thinking like, oh, man. These guys are nobody's playing better than Janas. Anka why nobody came to rest right there. Put like I say LeBron don't get to keep the best player Amato forever. Who is and you listen to Charles Barkley on the rich Eisen show. I am Mike orbits standing in for rich is in with along with NBA hall of fame imagery, let me get this. Right. Because you know, I date, you know, I just wanna make sure I hear you got right now K D Coa yawn. And then LeBron you got LeBron is the fourth best player in the NBA right now is that what you just got in the playoffs. Man. I'm saying. First of all it's up to your flavor of the month number one. But I think you got a fair argument after watching these play offs that deemed three guys about a player. Lebron not lebrons not their to represent himself. But if you Janas fan or or Katie fan or Leonard fan, you got a fair argument who the best player in the world is right now playing a simple. I'll be I mean, I don't think it. I don't think it's a stretch. Hey, let's LeBron is great. But right now the bras not there. But those three guys I just mentioned they are flat out bone and right now playing a simple. Yeah. I agree with you. I think John is for me. And and and I I think I think Katie is probably the best score. And and and with. And with hard. And but I think for me to break them all down. Best period, I'm saying because only. You gotta break it down. All on is have been he's rebounding. He's assisting. He's doing everything he's going full speed every play of the game that guy and he's willing his team to win. So I think he he just comes with a different energy to me. And then you gotta look at Leonard too. He's like that too. But I go Janas I go Janas, right? Mike. Listen. Okay. You got an argument for all those guys. Yes, it like you can say what does not close. Well, what we've seen in first of all all year. Lebron have a great year. Let's get that out the way he did not have a great year. But what these three guys are doing in the playoffs. You can actually say, man. One of these guys got an argument is being the best player in the world playing the simple right now. All right right now right now. So that I think that's making news right there. Lebron? People won't be tweeden about it. Chuck so Clinton's you, you say you got Milwaukee before we let you go Milwaukee over who in the final. Trailblazers to get to the finals. They let me down of the night saw blowing that they could've went up three one. But I most take what I picked him.

"Here is the Paul finebaum show. Our three podcast. We continue here. Second half of the show is live. And what a first it has been with dick vitelle centerstage lot of conversation about dick. He did the game last night. LSU in Kentucky it Rupp. He was also announced yesterday that he will receive the lifetime achievement award at the EMMY awards in New York in late may, let's go back to the calls and Ken is up next. How are you can do it? Well, Paul at you. We're doing great always good to hear from you. Thank you very much. I missed the first part of your show. But I tuned it. I subscribed to the Paul finebaum podcast. And I'm glad I checked in today. And I I just got through listening to the interview with dick. And he is right. It a play by play has gotten so technical especially with baseball every pitch being analyzed those nude. There was a ninety five hour mile an hour fastball. That was a ninety two mile an hour curve ball and all this kind of. And I, you know, I'm miss people like, Vince gully. And you know, the grades just I remember in the old days when CBS would cover the World Series and Vince gully and Jeff tour Borg would broadcast the play by play on the radio. And you felt like they were talking directly to you doing the broadcast just for you. And that is a lost art and a lot of these guys. Now, you know, no longer how to no longer know how to do that. And it's just kinda sad that play by play has declined in quality the way that it has. And no in your you've been in the business you understand better than most. But I I'm mortified by by what I hear on on broadcast and not only that they talk over. I mean, if you didn't play major league baseball, or we're an NBA you have no idea what they're talking about. Yeah. And and and the the grammar is bad. I mean, it's just it's hideous. And I I can remember when Chris jangle retired. I've. I go all the way back to the days. I'm sixty six years old. So I remember the days of Crescenzio doing football. And when he retired. I thought there's no way he can be replaced and then along came Keith Jackson. I was just mesmerized by him. And it's it's just hard these days to find really good play by play people. And I have spoken to some of the old timers that whose names, you would know Ken, and they have said that, you know, great deal had to do with, you know, Lynn being literal and painting. Word pictures, where if you're doing radio baseball game that may go for three hours and may go five hours, you have to be able to communicate. And nowadays the these broadcasts are they're not even watching the game. They're watching a monitor. There is so much interruption in their ears by producers who don't have a clue and. You don't get you don't have you didn't have that in the old day. You were literally on your own. I mean, you did everything you brought the equipment, you, you communicated. And I think it forced you to be better. And I think a lot of has to do with reading as well and not to give a lesson here sounding like an old timer, but these guys could speak about any subject at any time. And a lot of the young broadcasters. Can't know if it wasn't for Google, or you know, some other something on the internet. They could reach it with a touch button, they wouldn't know duly squat..
"lifetime achievement award" Discussed on First Take
"The two guys that you just said have never been first team all NBA. Right. Neither of those guys have been first team all NBA, but neither Westbrook. But I'm saying Westbrook has been an MVP. He's averaged trip now. But right now, I'm just talking about body of work. So we can't just say body. We just say you're going to add points giving them a body of about. This is my favorite player the dues on his third season of a triple double. I get his greatness. I love Westbrook right now who's the most valuable player on o'casey right now, we're not going to lifetime achievement award. The heartbeat of the team and TJ even came back. I agree with that. It's not the argument right now is a really thin slice. And I can't tell you. You're wrong today. But what I can tell you is no matter. What criticisms you have Russell Westbrook in the playoffs? And I don't think they're often. I've had some criticism for him as well. You have to acknowledge Paul George has been unreliable in the playoffs. Yeah. He hasn't been this guy right now. Yes. When it matter, right. And neither has no Westbrook. Cassidy rest broke has not either. So george. Yeah. I would say that as a client and say Georgia's performances to me than Russell Westbrook squad. Yeah. Love let's do it. So. Thirteen of his game high twenty eight points as the Mavs rallied to beat the blazers daunted said after the game it's easier to score in the NBA compared to Europe. Because of the core is bigger and the three second rule. Well, yes who the best player on the math? Is it Luca or newly acquired Kristaps Porzingis. That's not not not club. It's Luca imitation of Lucas so good that they created the entire starting lineup. Every talked about LeBron getting his starting on traded. There's not one left for Luca. Now. It's all four guys around him are new, and you know, what they figured out. I think there was some calculation. You know, maybe we'll end up in the top five because we saved the pick top five protected with Atlanta, you're finding you can't take with Luca who's to. He's too good to take this guy sees the floor. I like what he said about the court being bigger in the NBA because I actually think illustrates what's so special about him. The game is slow mentally for him. He sees it so easily Richard it could put a gun on his back. He can blow by him. He can step back. It gets his vision is amazing. I don't there's no level of whatever you see in porzingas. It's going to put him above what Luke and people. Don't. I kinda have I felt a little disrespected is like oh don't say that this is easier than Europe that the talent. No what he would. He's trying to illustrate. And I'll give you a short example. I average eleven points gain in college my junior year. And then I average ten points a game my rookie year. It wasn't that the talent was different. It was just the game is different the way. It's played is different. It is often simply friendly, right? And so here versus Europe that game is easier because you allow offense at this much harder to play deepens here than it is over in Europe. So I get what he's saying. But to your point like Dante is the guy he is the man. And if you play him forty minutes at night, which they are because they want to give them experience all of a sudden you look up and you have a chance to win the game. Right. That's right. That's not the way. It normally does blazer. Look, Don, let let me just say this. He's the best player taken in the draft, including Ben Simmons in the last three years. He's. A franchise player. He reminds me of the wait, wait until buys Harris fitting on the Sixers and the way boogie is fitting on the on the warriors. And that's the best version of what that could have been. Yeah. All the hype about Luca..

If there's going to be other other kinds of words, exactly the shorts. You're really excited about the shrimp. I'm always excited about the shorts. But probably more this year than ever because we're showing more of them. And it's a great. It's probably the best selection that we've had that since I've been doing it. There's a few programs. I want to mention one is called oddballs and outcasts. So every year, we get a lot of great shirts. We don't always know how to show them because they don't always fit with certain features are in certain theme attic programs. So we started doing last year. It's sort of eclectic program where we just put all the great shirts together in one program, and we're calling it an outcast not only because of that. But also because there's there's a theme in all the films about. About this about people that are outcasts are about people that don't fit into society. Some of them are comedy. Some of them are adults only some of them are animated and some of them have celebrities in them one of which very famous actor who's going to be at the screening directed one of the shorts. So that's going to be at three forty five at the Jean Cocteau on Saturday. The sixteenth if you love shirts this programs for you. If you live weird shorts. Oddballs the now. Run. I mean, how many how many different films and how long is that run? So that's a bad eight shorts and it's about an hour and forty five minute program. Yeah. So it's a lot is packed into it.

Documentaries and dramas and that's Friday at one forty one forty five at other Jean Cocteau Friday, the fifteenth we have an animated shorts program. Which is I think we're going to be showing fifteen short animated films. Some of them are only like three minutes when it's twenty five minutes. I love animation.

So you'll have an opportunity to see to game with everything you've seen that New Mexico. Absolutely great. Yeah. Yeah. Great subject. So it is. And I think it's it's celebrating. You see the diversity in local talent that we have in Santa Fe you recognize that when you see this particular film, and how unusual their work is. And you know extension of who they are. So so we have we have New Mexico shorts. We have animation short documentary short French shorts French shorts. So we're showing a program featuring some wonderful films from France, really, strong narratives there's about five or six different shorts in that program. And that's that.

Do since we're on the subject of Neil diamond to announce a year ago today. That he would no longer be touring due to Parkinson's. He was inducted into the songwriters hall of fame in eighty four. But it wasn't until two thousand eleven twenty seven years later that he was inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame.

He was an honorary. At the Kennedy Center. Two thousand eighteen he received the Grammy lifetime achievement award. I wonder how much of that happ had to do with the fact that he announced that he wasn't touring had Parkinson's and they wanted him to be alive for that. Every one of us out there. Has somebody who died before you had an opportunity to tell them to really to really tell them. How important they were. I find it fascinating.

"Who's it. Well because it was what the lifetime achievement award. So it's saying all right. This is I'm the old guy. You guys are next so tagged. Your it go make the industry something. We'll get in the get in the social media discussion later on this morning on that one. Yeah. Why don't you? Yeah. You're hashtag your it. I wanna make sure we. Don't leave today without quickly talking about looks like the White House has backed off on their Syria proposal. Right. Of withdrawing withdrawing yes, you had adviser Bolton talking over the weekend that you know, that because he's going to be meeting with the Turkish government. And basically he and Pompa Mike Pompeo have said in recent days that they want to assure that when they would draw finally withdraw from Syria that the the the Turkish military force doesn't go after the Kurtz. Right. We something that you I said on this one of the first things I said is you know, because it happened. When the president announced this whole withdrawal. Thing what had happened. It came about a week after he had a conversation with president air to one from Turkey. And I asked first of all when do we get our marching orders from Turkey. That's never been the case certainly from the current president of Turkey. And I think that's what you see in both the response from Bolton. And and Pompeo, and that is yeah, we may get out, but we wanna make sure we want that assurance that they will not go after the Kurtz. So that seems to be a and the president talking last Wednesday. And that whole ninety minute cabinet meeting when he was mentioning that, you know, that saying, well, you know, somebody else said four months, I didn't I never said four months. So kind of backing away from a timeline thing or not making a commitment at that time to a time line thing because the impression was an immediate withdrawal. That's right. Or at least if not maybe not one day, but the troops. The impression was a troops would be out in a month or two right? Yes. And so that's what people started asking. And he said, I never said four months. We'll see. So he kind of let that on the table, which means we could be in Syria for you know, another couple of years who knows? Right. Then he made the case of while. There's nothing going on in Syria. There's no real welfare, it's just sand and death. Those are the words he used to describe it. But for the biggest concern has been, of course, the concern with with Iran and their presence that was more of a confusing statement because nobody claimed Moore over there for well. We're we're not trying to to build an thing. That's really not it. If you're talking about twenty two hundred troops, especially your your your presence. It's keep Iran and impart Russia at bay, and I'd put that failure to the previous administration in terms of rush. Absolutely. You know, they lied about weapons and weapons. The chemical weapons storage and everything else and didn't call them out on it didn't alert in fact, quite the opposite. Let us to believe that it was that it was everything was great and the Russians were following through with their promise from Syria. And that was not the case. And finally, a new Gallup poll out. Although relatively averaged by global standards sixteen percent of Americans overall who set in two thousand seventeen and again in two thousand eighteen that they would like to permanently move to another country if they could. Is higher than the average levels during the George Bush administration or Barack Obama. No. Okay. And the whole point of this is more people wanna move because Trump is president. They want to move the country choice is Canada, even though they don't plan on moving. They said they would like to move even though they have no plans to move which gets back to. Okay. We're just wanna wine at somebody must be at fault for our lot in life because they happen to be president. Right. Because you know, this is the media's way of using something some something that's nothing. This is not make it look like that. We are in trouble the nation is in trouble. Because Donald Trump is president. They did it with Bush. They they've done it without every Republican president well of his they say sixteen percent during Trump eleven percent with Bush and ten percent during the Barack Obama administration. What does that mean that somehow that six percent more is supposed to tell us something right Gallup? And what is it supposed to tell us? Do those are those the six percent that should be leading policy in the United States. Because if they're saying that, yeah, I'd like to leave, but I'm not really going to leave. Then that's just like saying well seventy percent of Americans wish they had the ability to fly. They don't. But they sure would like to. Well, it means nothing unless they're actually getting up and leaving. There would be the number. I would look at how many of Americans have decided, and it would have to be not because they got married, and and they moved to Europe with their their spouse or they moved to another country as a as a matter of a lifestyle change you and I both know somebody who moved to Mexico, and they they live down there. And I have a couple of friends in fact that have done that over the years. That's not what's they're not leaving. Because Trump is president. No, they're not leaving. Because Barack Obama is president. So find the people that actually did leave that actually got up packed everything and left. There's the only number that counts in regards to people leaving as a result of who's president put me down to for the flying thing. Yeah. Yeah. No. I'm I'm I'm definitely in that. Yeah. But invisible I I want to be invisible and I wanna fly now. Because the flying thing I've done in my dreams. Yeah. You fly in your dreams? And I've also been invisible in my dreams, I've never been invisible. But I flew I flew in my dreams, and that's many times. And that's really cool. That's when you wake up, you're like, wow. That's a cool dream, right? Because you sit there and you come down and just write down near the ground. And then you fly right back up in the air and not scared of heights in my dreams, right? So have you go? It's weird. I've told you my dreams I'm scared of being invisible, I have a fear of being visible, but not in my dreams. Yeah. I mean, it really is ridiculous. That that they they have these polls. It doesn't matter. Who says oh, yeah. I would love to move to Canada. But I'm not gonna. Well, that's all we'd right? The Paul exactly the number Americans at said I'd like to move to Canada good. But. 'cause I hate this guy. I want to move because it's ridiculous. People can say anything they want. Oh, yeah. Wanna do a lot of things? I would I wanna be a billionaire. Okay. You're want to be a billionaire, but I'm not. I mean lady Gaga wants to be a victim. But she's not as that's the thing. She gets to she not a billionaire, but she gets to be a third of a billionaire and now she wants to go back to being a victim. We didn't play the whole speech. Maybe she was saying I've been trying to make billions of dollars in Akron, only make hundreds of millions of dollars. Right. So I'm a Natick dum. Okay. All right. Maybe we have wrong. So what's your name again? Gaga gone. Oh, and you want to be taken.

"No one is like. The model is not built on on Warner giving them money. Right. No. But they have a eight gazillion dollar saying they're making money somehow right use. But you're the the webby business model is mash -able and Mike and FOX meeting everyone, Mike, I'm sure if one point they wrote a check every time he about the model is the interviews definitely part of the model. But also be part of the model is they aggregate audience of people that a lot of companies when he get front of a big sponsorship is and this was a thing that existed, but was in some. Where they were owned in a prior life of the webby awards were owned by. And they have been part of their is at one point in the nineties a magazine called the web for that they print magazine about like what websites to go to and the web magazine. But a lot of people that claim to have founded the web yours. I don't know. I actually have no idea who I did not I did not came out of the web magazine. It was a very San Francisco event in like the nineties, and then it didn't wasn't around for two years. So we my partner Roger, and I thought the internet needed it's award show, and they've done some really cool things. And one thing they had this like five word acceptance speech concept, you only get a five hundred acceptance speech, which has been sort of like the calling card, and we bought the intellectual property, and we relaunched this award show thinking that this could be something really great. And then we had like a like all businesses have moments of what people look we'll lose. No, look, it's just it. It's a lot of luck. That are. Our very first webby awards had about a thousand people enter I think the most recent one had like fifteen thousand about a thousand people enter and we did it in New York, and somehow or another we gave allegory in in a ward for like, you know, a lifetime achievement award and being also. An Al Gore came to the webby awards and was like we were like, I cannot believe I have you wanna she later this. I mean, this is like twelve thirteen years ago. And it was it was his first public appearance after going dark after the election and his five word speech on stage was please don't recount this vote. And the it was like the first viral moment on the internet, and it was on like, I remember like world news tonight. It was on sixty minutes. And that was the thing that launched us is like, whoa. The webby awards this interesting. It's like the Cleo wars industry award. But it had this like pop culture thing in years f winded we've had prince there and the beastie boys and Jimmy Fallon. Now, these guys, and it turned into this like the publishers all ask their publishers fans, wherever please votes becomes this thing. More people get invested in it. Yeah. It's a fun. Was there a time? We thought oh, this is moved from the novelty to like, this is a recurring business. And there was a yes. Like our third year doing this. The New York Times in the arts section did like a very big. Big profile of the webby awards when that happened. We're like, oh, this is arrived. And I think the moment of New York Times moment where the two things that sort like catapulted this into in the in the creative awards base. And it's still like a B two B thing. There's the Ken lions there's the webby awards, and they're sort of the Cleo awards, and there's a bunch of other things that are small and build this thing that becomes a successful thing. It's a once year thing a Masumi. There's a natural thought like well. All right. I built a thing that works make more of it. Or, you know, it's only once a year, and you know, there's a lot of risks. What else can I do with this? So so the com- well, the company's called recognition media that on the web. We we actually ended up running nine different awards programs. So something called the telly awards does video wards programs on the called the communicator awards. We used sort of like the same. It's actually not that different than what we do. Now the same backbone to run all the awards, but each one had his own sort of like verti- extra up. Yeah. We built it out..
