But it is revealed to be dystopia as the story progresses. The novel follows a twelve year old boy named. Jonas. The society has taken away pain and strife by converting to sameness a plan that has also a radical emotional depth from their lives. joanie elected Jonas selected to inherit the position of receiver of memory the person who stores all the past memories of the time before Sameness as there may be times where one must draw upon the wisdom gained from history to aid the communities.

"Ask them what they think about it. And your kids, so they think it's fantastic because what the hell you know. That answer also could have totally worked for my next question, but. I'm asking to you anyway. Because now I'm very excited here. Would you say? Is there one book you can think of that changed you in some. Profound fundamental core kind of way, yes. Absolutely, that would be the giver by Lois Lowry. Tell me why? We read the giver in the Seventh Grade. And I was at A. I mean seventh grade. Everybody's at a weird little hormonal crossroads right? Yes but when you are a young. Black girl at A. underfunded. School. It is really really easy. To make what feels like very normal preteen and teenage decisions. And have them. Derailed the rest of your life. and. My precociousness I, guess by the time I got to middle school had gone from being coded as annoying to be encoded as aggressive. And so. I spent a lot of time. In trouble. Like a lot of time in trouble. Not For fighting not for like cheating, not for doing anything actually bad mostly for disagreeing with my teachers, and then refusing to back down. I spent a lot of time in trouble for that and I had just gotten to a point where I was looking around at my teachers, and these people who were supposed to believe in me. And I felt like. This is all a scam. Like. This is all a scam. These people don't want me to win. They don't care that. I'm smart. They don't care about me or who I am. They're just people common, do their jobs and if anything I'm just an obstacle to them, doing their job I am not part of the job. And that's why.

When you you oh you never realize that you were to book about your fantasy. You are psycologically. It's actually interesting. I never thought of that when you're interviewing the undertaker like this week do you obviously of a way to do it. But do you go in thinking like I'm GonNa treat him like he's the undertaker or you're going to mock the fact. I'm saying like you go in saying I'm GonNa take snot seriously or not. But am I gonNA play around with this sort of Mystique? Well I don't even think it's playing around because there's like there's some memory that you have I think it was when we had Stone cold on and I was like you broke my heart when you went like when you sided with Vince for that free period time putting elderly Steve Austin if you if I saw Steve Austin subway or something. He'd be like in my mind sort of like the wrestler. The undertaker is A. I don't think he's actually dead. Never Harry Harry Harrison listening to this hope but I don't think he's dead but I did ask my last question. The interview was really believed that but I really believed when he does die mark. Calloway DOT. I won't believe that he's dead forever. I'll just like well. He's it's like of course he's not yet but he's GonNa be at Wrestlemania this year and then a wrestlemainia will pass and be like will he. He's probably got another surgery. He'll be another resume and like I will never. I could see his corpse and I could see open Kathy. And I'm like no. He's not that like he is not that well okay. But he's not by what you did. I listened to both because I was interested. Just interested most. The people don't do podcast and start doing them. You guys they much better job than Simmons did much better.

"After a book by Lois Lowry is rated P. G. as the new York times puts it it sure caught a parasite what Netflix now is director Chris burns joins me hi Chris welcome to all of it hi how are you angry we have to talk about that description grey gardens meets Arrested Development of had also well I mean it did did the obvious kind of shot in family saying that you know they've kind of forgotten to go out the world is forgotten about them so that sort of you know kind of beginning first staff if the grey garden side of it and you know there's a lot of snow on the March to to sit coms I grew up you know watching sitcoms as a kid and I love like the idea of every character being a little optimistic and earnest even if they're not good listeners to everyone else's wishes and that sort of the the comedy structure of Arrested Development was it was it was a first step that that felt right to me it's interesting since the company because they're also so many great allusions and nods to literature we heard that clip and other movies the nanny for example does not look a thing like Mary Poppins but she can do amazing things with an umbrella what are some of the other nods to certain classics and why you chose them one or two how would you know there there's a there's a bunch I mean Lois Lowry's book which is really the sort of fun subversive I think Kathy you know response children's literature and we wanted to have it over to children's film you know I'm not I'm not completely just even children's film I mean all the car accidents you know we're in kind of an homage to Herald a modest number that in the seventies and you know they're certainly shining reference the twins look like candy even though the wiggle thing from Canada's red rum another shining one but that further kids movies go you know we we really want to have like three endings we wanted to do like the but I was calling like the Disney Pixar ending which was the first landing and the second ending is an independent film ending you know this was not the kind of come later Canada so you kind of have to have a tragic snowing and then and then the third ending is this a common thing which is kind of like an episode of Roseanne so you know all of that was sort of you know kind of boiled into playing with the with the medium but we we always want that wouldn't wanna really loved it but the book is it you know it didn't drift too deep into parity like we wanted to only be that references but then make them the kind of organic to the story and the characters so all of the stuff from the anti for example if you missed quotes Mary Poppins wrong but then you know he becomes her own version of what that means to be an actor so it's just it was a fun thing for the rest with and I have to say I laughed out loud when you names the baby Ruth's and she goes that's actually bought the book it's beautiful it says it's a chef Keith one thing that we had to how to refine actually on the internet now with the with the backstory we learn now in office commander now announced you know tragic kind of citizen came past and even in that with all the despite the of you know that name roof being the sort of the magic thing report of candy bar and you know he was so close to kind of coming up with the name sweetie brit which one yeah kind of funny to me that it was a little not here confection my guess is Chris Byrne director animator of the will of bees so you know it's like we said you've listened to this conversation people think this is dark these four kids talking about killing their parents so they can be convinced that that that's a better thing but it's really truly whole areas and parts as you were assembling in your writing and you're starting to look at the finished product how did you want how did you balance that darkness with that the humor Tom it's a challenge I mean animations like slow motion stand up here it tells you can generate three and half years and see how it lands with the audience because it's such a labor intensive process with so many ingredients going into the final product but when I when I first read the book I mean I love the you know we've got a story starts with the why they act like I love this idea of what if there was a family that had a lot of love but no idea how to share like these two parents to kind of look at their children as an unfortunate byproduct of another what's perfect union that money can be and so we always knew that the film wasn't meant to be a documentary it was meant to be a fable or parable and so this gave it to you know kind of you know the comedy underpinning we we we want to be careful that the phone never felt affected dark so like for our choices from the color to the types of jokes that we would tell to this kinda earnestness of the characters all of that which remain under cut dark kind of what effect the story so I mean ultimately the film was kind of a celebration family because really what our main character wants is just to sit at the table and have a dinner with the people shares name kind of what he learned what he gets at the end of the film she did have the dinner but with people who love him and that sort of the the lesson of the film I think which is not meant to be preachy but this idea of like the the corner reading and that can make a family great last night which was always something that we were trying to say in a way that was wrong you know Philip so in the film the movies and I have talked about another balance is the parents who are played by Martin short engine cookout Mr secretary and even their mother either mazing other harmful to their children but they're also really into PDA like this creepy sexually risque get a room behavior and I'm curious about balancing that which is the whole layer isn't subversive for an adult but also knowing the kids are going to watch this yeah I think you know that was one of the tricks like we during the course of making a film like this week we kind of make it a bunch of times with drawings before we make it with the very expensive machine the pixel so a lot of the a lot of the processes on fishing show weirdly enough because Martin short one the cashier soldiers mediate Lee warm and and the joke of of what they kind of offer the film came forward really quick in our process that we have a lot more movie about two years ago and one of the things that we just found we screened it to the audience that is that we needed to kind of have less of them and more the kids but also where we put the camera mattered so we were with the kids watching the parents there was like a squid factor that I think you know what kids don't really love you we love stories especially not from old people just sort of a fun sort of grades up against the creepiness that I think if we keep we leveled it right it sort of landed enough fun space discount like those hot tub parents that are a little too I'm I'm not I'm I'm I'm a repressed farm kid with Protestant background so like I always find that kind of funny so that was really that was really something that that we wanted to keep on the phone but didn't didn't we had a lot so it didn't didn't get over over that's so funny hot to parents speedo dad I completely exit yeah my my gross is Chris my guess is Chris burns director animator of the film the Willoughby's which is on Netflix no I don't know that much about animations I had to read read a bit so please correct me if I say anything wrong so it it's the stop mode it has it we have two D. animation the background as well as three D. but it also kind of looks like stop motion can you describe accurately what the F. well with without getting into the weeds I think you know the computer generated imagery can be very real because it's essentially a real camera and you can have relating the world can look very very real seamless and watch the Marvel movies it seems one of the things that we started making this film it was really important that the comedy keyboard and that it felt like fairytale not not a documentary so I come from two D. animation place to draw on paper and there's there's principles that you know we would we would kind of one of you were learning the craft in terms of how to pose characters how to how to hit oppose it very almost like theater like vaudeville like you're you have to imagine your audience to stand back away from from the characters and so there's a lot of projection and so one of the things that we we really need hard into with those kind strong Q. depot supposed principles and then combining that with like the hyper texture so my production designer Paul McQueen wanted the audience to feel like they could go to Michael's or craft store and basically by all the stuff to make this movie so it sort of has a great handmade feeling and and that combined with the post opposing animation and the fact that we don't use a lot of motion blur that gave us a very tactile almost stop motion feeling and and I love that like I I spent some of my career working at a company called a familiar while you're on the John running all those homes so I'm I love that I love that he needs he also we need that third the come forward in our process we really leaned into it we actually heard a great joke on March third act which is like a little like with the Congress space power something the little microscopic he has like a living thing but we actually put some prince in the in the characters that they felt like they were literally made a claim so we we we definitely try to make that that world feel like it was stop motion even though it was really just remind the classic cartooning I'll stop what you know there's that explain it it was very interesting and it's the voice acting is so important and you have a great voice actors here what did you learn makes a great voice actor I mean it's hard to go wrong with my real Terry crews will forty Jinger Kelsey Martin short but you mom there must be something about being a voice actor what is it that you need to have all I think you know I always try to make the make that space feel really you know kind of in prostate you know as much as you kind of sweat the words and you try to you know write a script to be very careful I love the stuff that happens in in you not come alive moment when you get somebody on a microphone so with casting is always really important to me that you know we find good parents and a lot of these comedians I'd work with another films and also like I've seen them another another like projects that they've been on together so like you know the Martin short changed like they've they've they've been paired off in such amazing ways I've always loved one will court case with my Rudolph and stuff like those sort of choices kind of ripple into I think.

"They were emily. Every time you say it just makes me. Angrier is like the girls are not like other girls. You know every time you say it was not a fan. I didn't like that at all. the only thing that I liked about this movie was the realtor that was like money money. That was that was funny but the rest of it was I wasn't I didn't connect I just. I wanted fast forward through the whole thing to finish it. Yeah way longer than I also couldn't figure out what the plot was supposed to be like. I could not tell you a single thing. I haven't read the story to the cherished tale In certain circles right didn't tell me that Henry. No I told myself that okay. I'm pretty sure based on like a beloved. I told me that no well. I'll find out you keep talking. Lookie I'll do some investigating pressure done before. Okay I'm still undecided on whether or not I liked the animation style because it seemed like it was trying to copy that Lake New addams family cartoon which I still haven't seen right like Just generally not a huge of like super-sleek animation make sense. Yum. I'm teen studio like For so yeah saw like this. Felt very like despicable measly million sort of vibe and I'm just not into it sure Although I did appreciate the mustaches those were cool but my way. I'm so sorry but we all know how that I'm don't but yeah you won't believe this. It's based on a lowest lowry book. Ooh really yeah. That's interesting Campbell. The I never heard of that one. I read all of a wall. I didn't obviously but shoe I meet meet them gathering blue I would meet the sequel to that I read. I read a lot of them but making it. That must have been after our time or something. I wasn't really popular on. Yeah true. True blue definitely didn't feel like her work. I was GONNA say I wonder if they messed with the tone of it because it also deals with. That was my biggest problem with it naturally. Because I'm you know me but my biggest problem was with. It was how they dealt with like they did not earn the right to use such serious issues as jokes and plot points and Which was like much funny about child neglect nor being orphaned et Cetera et Cetera. Candied bad for you. That's that's the last one. Yes so a lot about it rubbed the wrong way from the get-go but I that's what I'm wondering could it's not. It doesn't feel very lois lowry so I might just have to even read a little bit to investigate because now I know that the tone is just so different than the rest of her stuff. It would make more sense that that kind of Story line would be part of her work. That tends to people who don't know I guess She tends to do works Accessible to kids but take on like serious big existential. You know thoughts and pond zoos. And she's like the kid version of a Shirley That lady whose first name is Sheryl Lee lays name lady lottery. I.

"Learn and you know those things are you can never predict what that's GonNa be so You know what I learned on say. Cloudy too I think in a really take away my experience it was. I learned how to debate and argue in a way that you know kept the conversation going as a story artist. You're dealing with a blank page. But as a director you actually have to keep everybody feeling safe about the movie as going through all of it slings narrows. You're a bit of a politician so that skill I didn't have until the end of that movie and so coming into this movie You know we made a studio in Vancouver called Braun and it was a start office an independent production and you know as as as it grew through the process of net flicks getting on board. You know we became a bit more of a blue chip like what I'm used to in terms of making the film but early on there's a lot of things I didn't understand about production how to set up another department. You know the the value of the note takers in the room. Because I was used to being a big studios like you guys. Come from where it's like. That's just what the world looks like. You never think about your knee until it hurts and sort of like understanding how valuable those people aren't to the chain of command was something that this movie really taught me and I think When you look at like really good At least in my experience really good directors that are able to be wrong in the room able to listen able to you know. Make Somebody feel good when they pitch a sequence. That's not GonNa make the movie but look make them feel good about what they did so that they can go off and and keep going on. You know what I mean like that to me is really important skill and worked with and I wanted to highlight something you were just talking about to which I think is part of my journey to as a director is working at the bigger studios Disney and Sony and all these big places that you take for granted the kind of resources that you have you just talk about that and and it's such a such a change when you're now you're an independent producer director of film on the Willoughby's you are screenplay you gotTa Screenplay Credit Executive Producer and director credit awesome. Yeah that tells me that you were involved with this early on that. You helped this happen in a big way. I WanNa hear that story. How did you transition from big studio director? Cloudy with a chance of meatballs. Two to now being in the independent world. I was working with that idea what Japan and say. I do. Remember that this project. The willoughby's was one of the very first ones that they rolled out. So that's I know you have been there for a while on this because it was a. It was one of the very first initial things that they announced As their new animation original stuff that they were creating. Yeah Yeah I was a four and a half years ago is twenty fifteen I was working with Miller and Lord again storyboarding on the haunt Sola movie and The producer Who ended up working with on? Willoughby's Luke Carroll. He was down in town. He everybody knows everybody. Animation mutual friends so we had that no. La Experience where you have breakfast with producer. And he's option does book record. Your Voice was patched already He was at the studio up in Vancouver so there was a bit of momentum on it and he gave me the book and say give it a read and let me know what you think so I always try to you know. Come out things as cold as possible so I read the book and what I really loved about it. Was this kind of subversive story that What Lois lowry was doing was was like making fun of tropes of Children's literature and it got me excited. This idea of like telling a story about You know difficult situation that these children are in but let that kind of trust that you know imagination and and you know that kind of coming of age story where the kids aren't shepherd where they have to initiate it and get through it on their own felt really interesting. You know the world we're living in now or then in two thousand fifteen My pitch back was basically. What if we what if it took grey gardens and mixed it with the rest of development for kids and immediately? I think that that's sort of attraction of them And you know Y- cut to the pinball travel so I was. I was developing over in Vancouver. I was also developing a project with oriental dreamworks. Shanghai which is how I met Melissa Cobb. And of course three went through its cycle. That studio transitioned into their independence phase. Melissa ended up over at Net flicks cut to a few years later. I'm in Italy at a conference and I'm flying back the San Francisco to do a a meeting. Santa Rosa wildfires were happening. So that meeting isn't going to happen. I can't change my ticket so I'm going to be in San Francisco so I figure I'm got pop down to La and just see if Mosul take a meeting and she did and a picture the Monroe and She got really excited. I think about you know the tone of the book and she. She got it right away in terms of where the movie Wanted to go and You Know Greg Taylor had just joined onto had worked with him on a couple of projects over at dreamworks so interestingly like I was making those little independent thing and you know is you're making it. You have faith in that. Hope this gets made but you kind of. It's almost like rolling snowball but you don't know how much snow there is down the hill. You just you just have to have faith that will keep going and you know none of these. Things could have premeditated nothing in. There was like an active choice. But I think when the door opens you say yes and you walk through it and you take the risk and you and you just see if you can find these these Anything that get that snowball down the hill is that make samsa decided. It was good timing too. Yeah right when you did come down there and pitch it. Yeah and to me like if I look a Mike consumption patterns like the way I I am as an audience. I loved it for years. I I love this world. We're living in. Let stuff coming right into my living room. And I think a movie like the Willoughby's which has some you know some trickier themes it always felt better as something that you know didn't have to push into that four quadrant marketplace. I think net flicks was really supportive about letting the movie be what it what it wanted to be so that to me it was. It was an early Marriage that felt really really beneficial to the man and I just want us to stop for just a second for those. That haven't seen it yet because it is just coming out released this. Can you give us a little pitch? Give us the couple sentence picture. What the story of the Willoughby's except coming of age story about this Four kids who Instead of running away from home they tricked their parents in the running in running away from our leaving they took their parents in the leaving and then in in in colliding with the real world they discover sort of the parents are important and they end up going on the road trip that they should have had at the beginning to get their folks back and along the way they They kind of have that You know that kind of wizard. Oz experience where they collide with a bunch of people and they discover the difference between the family. You're born into under a legacy name like Willoughby and the family you can choose based on love and that sort of what movie is so. It's great how top to see senior. Yeah now that sounded like the Disney version. I'm like wait a second that did happen but it's a lot darker a lot year but I gotta say and this is this is. We're not being paid but by Netflix. In any way or Chris earn although that would be okay. If you wanted to throw mailed the checks there okay good. I really enjoyed this and one of the things that I love about. What Netflix is doing on the animation side is? They're they're not afraid to do like you were saying they're not afraid to do something. Maybe darker offbeat or quirky or doesn't feel like anything we've seen before and I felt that with Claus which a European Field. Yes and then. When I saw the Willoughby's I was like Dang. This is like a wes Anderson. Scott silly climbed with a chance of Paul's Mutes Wes Anderson. Harold and Maude was probably one of my biggest influences on this going on this idea like dealing with dark subject matter. You know. It's like you know a kid trying to kill himself flying in love with an old lady use the life and it's like you know that collision felt this idea of like a a group of kids that have like a nice house and have two parents. You know want to be the thing that happens animated movies like you know they want to be orphans and so you in a normal animated movie that happens ten minutes into the story and then you have the story so ultimately the for me. It felt funny that we in a way that wasn't parody. Take the tropes that we're all familiar with and then flip them on their head and really just sort of talk about. I think what it feels like the grow up in a in a messed up situation and I'm going to be totally on us because we are not getting paid by Netflix. Okay I'm watching it. Visually Beautiful Oh. Yeah we're GONNA talk about the great character designs and stuff like that by Craig Kellman but first story. I'm watching this and I'm a dad and I'm going okay. Wait a second. These parents are not good. Parents like these people. They don't like their kids. They don't want to be with their kids. Yeah so there's this lemony snick it. Series of unfortunate events. Kind of feel to it. That's darkness and that kind of thing where there's like. There's some real bad people and they're just out there very boldly being bad right just like they. Just don't care about the kids and I'm going. Okay where's this GonNa go again as a dad? I'm like you're gonNA kids watching this. How are they going to sort of react to this? And then I don't WanNa give away spoilers of the ending of course but they're obviously there is a family at the end that is redemptive like there's a very nice feeling at the end. You're like okay. We are showing. Obviously there's some morals to it. There's some there's a light side to this where we're going to see now. This is what family is a little bit of like the little stitch kind of a thing where they're showing a dysfunctional family. Things aren't going very well right. But then at the end you do get a sea of. They've discovered what a real family is even a dysfunctional one. Yeah even even a different kind of family. Kinda kind yes. I think that that was what was important to me like looking at like the role doll kind of references. That were in her book. You know the way he literature like Matilda like those bad people that you know that they're up against The protagonist is up against and think wanting to you. Know kind of bite down on that in a way that like. I think there's this idea of like. Can you break a cycle? And they're really love the metaphor that all of these characters are kind of stuck in their boxes. And everybody's got a label that comes from you know where you're born what you know what your last name is where your legacy comes from. Those things are important. In at the end of the movie. It's like we're not saying that being a willoughby wrong or bad because they do stay together but they they they discover that there's another value system that matters and there's a choice now when you make the choice when you fight for it suddenly what it means to be with people changes you know what I mean. You're no longer stuck no longer serving the past. You're actually creating future and all of that felt really sticky to me and underneath that it felt funny me to to play with that side of parenting that. I think I almost like Martin Short Jankowski's characters never had their coming of age. So what happens if you never become a teenager? What happens if you go straight from being a kid to being you know in your forty s and you've got kids and you're still sort of wanting to have your own adventure and I love the idea that came from.

U. at this point it's been too long I will say to the people have real things that they want done and yeah it seems like the government sometimes ignores them but sometimes they do come through like for example we talked for a really long time about getting Serbian she's up to international standards it's been a huge theme of the show since the beginning and you know what size Serbian cheese yeah yeah I was I thought you but she said a something is not to international standards we demand that really bothers me yeah and we finally have in in a report released by rand Paul who went through all the budgets and found some of the more interesting items we spent to twenty of twenty two million dollar project working to bring Serbian she's up to international standards so finally that's done and it may I ask I I'm now I'm just asking this I'm pretending I you wouldn't know the the real reason Sir you know so just just for the dummies in the audience who why would we care about Serbian she's not being up to international standards for your head what benefit would that be to us you know a country that makes jeans but that was a weird question right off the bat but I get I get your I know everybody in there everybody in their car listening right now they're all shaking their hand like that as a dumb question but you have to think what a hundred and ninety four countries in the world what is the other one hundred and ninety three stop making cheese then where do I get okay good see go to serve yeah we have to go there hello I had a Serbian cheese cake a cheese steak just yesterday was delicious her healing yeah I'd of Philadelphia it's a little closer and there is no government money yeah well and that's just one example of course there was the social if you remember he said we're going into our third decade of doing the show most of the first decade and you haven't been around a long time but most of the first decade we started talking about how we really needed a statue of Bob Dylan in our embassy in Mozambique and we we it was a huge pain because moles and be kids his home village right that's where it came from obviously Bob Dylan there're a lot of songs about most families in peak and I thought to myself dammit this is one statue like the statue of liberty this is one statue then we should gift to Mozambique right right and luckily we have we done it will finally be released the card the money to do so with eighty four thousand three hundred seventy five dollars going up Bob Dylan statue in our embassy in Mozambique I feel realign about that and you know the people of Mozambique they walk into the embassy like everybody and bows and be great as they walk into the lobby and they're like you know this doesn't feel like a man all my gosh it's Bob exactly what I now that I know right yeah it's great and now we've obviously spent a lot of time talking about Laotians I'm a huge this show is been dedicated to the future of Laotian later things that they put over your neck when you arrive in Hawaii kai no this is well it still exactly that we spent twenty million dollars to teach Lao to Laotians it is their job I mean I I don't know like a lot of money to spend to teach one kid Lao no I mean who is allow why is that's that's that's for the next decade I guess to figure out okay all right okay what's the what else is on this list well we have it because you know one thing we've been very concerned about is well it's hard to prioritize it when you're in this list it is these are all number one on my list you know and look I don't you know look everyone has to be able to figure out you know love is love we've talked about that many many times Lois Lois Lowry's Lau we're not going to waste in Laos the things they would all right so we well I am very concerned we we talk with as many times of frog mating calls like what what's going on with those frogs how or the meeting how do they get it they each other well and should do they do to just try it is kind of flooring you what's the what's the situation there now it is important because they're all naked and so after awhile when everybody's naked it just kind of wears off you don't look at each other you know there's something about slowly revealing that yeah exactly so they're all naked in the first place and we've learned from Alex Jones most of the friggin frogs are game they are because of fluoride right he's still so how do we get some snow you do need to resume six straight hook ups and they don't they don't have a tender for frogs isn't even a thing so now this is another fingers their finger the problem is their fingers can't swipe because they stick to the screen that's true that's true how however that they do have those long tongues that if you put the phone across the room they can like they're catching that build the flies they could just kinda yes why they give John rag the other phone that's really another to them totally different grant and this one was different four hundred and sixty six thousand nine hundred ninety one dollars we spent on a grant studying frog mating calls which I'm concerned about I was a this is not enough not enough frog sex going on because as you point out all the frogs are gay so I don't know if they're having gay frog sex that's not what this is about this is about.

"Teams are finally starting to make some trades I don't know why only a few teams though are starting to make trade look the deadline is next week it's Wednesday I suppose that you don't have to rush if you're one of the top teams in baseball but I really have a lot of respect for two teams that honestly are not even close to favorites in the American League for the moves that they made yesterday first off the Minnesota Twins and the Minnesota Twins about quite an impressive season they've been really surprising with how good they've been they got a head start on all of baseball by trading for Marlins reliever Sergio Romo let's pause for a moment and just think about all the Miami Marlins right now I feel for you guys I feel for you I feel for your fans I feel for you it must suck to be there and Sergio Romo is a guy that has won three World Series with the San Francisco Giants but he gets traded to the Minnesota Twins the twins forum what I understand did not give up that much to get him to give up one of their big minor league prospects but when it comes to minor league prospects I am very much let's relax with what their actual value is compared to the value of someone who right now in the majors is actually a good player and that's what the twins are getting is Sergio Romo thirty six years old yes but when you move a guy from a team on the like the Marlins where he's got about three point six ERA to a team that's like an actual playoff contender things tend to get better for that guy because he's in a better situation any focuses more without Justin verlin are coming to the Houston after a couple of seasons ago I think we're gonna see it was Sergio Roma with the Minnesota Twins got got a three point oh nine career ERA in the playoffs and let's be honest the twins who played the New York Yankees earlier this week and we're pretty admirable in keeping with that office of juggernaut that New York is able put out every single night in on on top of that really showed some pretty impressive skills of the plate themselves shelling the Yankees starting reading though that might be something that all of the major leagues can do more on that in a moment they go in they get a reliever which they desperately need because they blew a big timely against the Yankees earlier this week so the twins getting big time reliever at a time where it seems like bullpens across baseball have never been worse especially on contending teams the cubs I guess employed eight saves this month the Houston Astros I know don't feel very good about the guys that they're throwing at the end of games is alright Presley their best reliever blow game against the St Louis cardinals on Friday we know the Boston Red Sox have been having issues with their bullpen we know that the New York Yankees having issues with pretty much all of their starting pitching and all other pitching in peace all other pitching period but the Minnesota Twins they are the first team to show some see before the trade deadline and honestly they shot because they're in a spot where they're not on the same level as the actors in the Yankees the **** and Yankees are by far the clear class of the American League in you could argue okay well maybe maybe the twins and get that conversation but I I think it's very unlikely end of Boston starts to get hot I suppose you could also put them in the same category too because they do have some horses in their starting pitching they do have a damn good lineup that isn't hitting the same way that it was last year the old days also a team that's in that same category as the Minnesota Twins the twins right now the the American League central by couple games over the Indians the age right now are neck and neck with the Boston Red Sox for the second wild card spot in the American League they traded for left hand reliever J. geek meant they already have a loaded bullpen verbal pen just got a little bit better so the eighth veterans make moves why the hell are the Yankees making moves why the hell aren't the Houston Astros making moves it's bizarre to me and look we got into this conversation a lot with the biggest nerds that follow baseball and they are obsessed with the idea of what a prospect might be some day but I think that is a flawed line of thinking elevating your confidence level in something that has never actually been at the professional level it's akin to something that we see with people that over value first round draft picks in the National Football League now don't get me wrong some prospects can develop into incredible players over time just like a first round draft pick in the NFL can be extremely valuable but it's far from a sure thing and maybe this is me the millennial who wants everything right here right now but I look at real assets and I want to get those real assets on my team and for the Astros right now I'm looking at the starting rotation that I have Justin Verlander great Kerr call having an awesome season but it's like his last season with the Houston Astros the Astros are really nervous and this is for Ken Rosenthal of the athletic very nervous about trading Kyle Tucker one of the prospects who by the way I can't really play the field and there's not really a spot for him right now in the lineup they want to be called soccer for the long term prospects because there's a couple of guys are gonna be free agents after twenty twenty Michael Brantley is on a great season George Springer to be specific they are unwilling to move with Kyle Tucker to get a guy like notes in a guard which to me is just bonkers like I understand feeling good about a prospect the one the prospect honestly does not have a place on the major league roster right now can't really play the field and you need another pitcher we wait for you could say the same thing right now but the New York Yankees the Yankees just have like the worst week in their history as far as starting pitching goes like we're going back to nineteen twelve nineteen twelve that's a hundred plus years ago which is also just weird is that right I mean it's it's twenty nineteen it's still weird thing that nineteen twelve was over a hundred years ago what will want to place over a hundred years ago it's incredible but you look at what they're not doing here and thank you but just what is the rationale when you're starting pitching is just getting them right the face all right in the face all right suddenly got to every single game nothing is going well for them thirty eight runs the last three games the Yankees thirty eight that is insane that's that's that's a lot what's her name nineteen runs a couple nights ago and thirty nine over seventy thirty eight over three years got to got to get that right man the one running two huge difference and a final game against the Boston Red Sox tonight they might get forking swept by Boston they have a lot of seven plus runs seven times this week holy guacamole I mean that's that's insane Anderson backed willing the thumbs and you know the Yankees are probably going to make a move by the trade deadline but I'm I'm wondering why they're sitting back what are they really that nervous about whatever it might cost to go get a top of the line starting pitcher they could potentially end things right now with how good their line up is if they were to go and get themselves any starting pitcher no waiting some of these games like they're beating the Minnesota Twins despite giving up all these runs earlier in the week yeah he's pitching coach Larry Rothschild had this to say about the way things are going for the pitching staff it's my responsibility to get it right no it's actually Brian Cashman responsibilities actually the Yankees front office's responsibility the guys they have aren't good enough Anderson back and willing to sounds like I I I I imagine this layer ostrog god needs to work on some things I mean were based here in Houston and constantly we hear just constant praise for branch strong the Astros pitching coach will read Scott let these these yeah that's the way I look at the Pentagon yeah right goes down by a lot and then we look at the Yankees and we're like Lois Lowry Ross shock I bet he can't get it done they know that mean the pitching is there anything more talented I mean for god sakes he's he's about the is still with one of the more important pitcher for the New York Yankees this is about the he's like a hundred years old I'm exaggerating a little bit but only a little but probably only off I think three four years or something like that so I mean if you're the Yankees were you doing right now really I think you're the Yankees you know what the twins you can let the twins basically out big friends are you you're not you're not the twins basically plot on the table gotcha where the where the team that actually like makes aggressive moves Yankees the back a little bit you know just watch is just what we do with it with the actors to like I you know I I understand being willing pragmatic about the future but when you're the Astros I don't think you have that many more years after this as far as being like one of the best teams in baseball so why not insure that you're one of the best teams in baseball driven wasn't a card come on if no senator was actually available to you for like how Tucker what are you doing like it's one thing if Jordan Alvarez the rookie who has been bombing home runs all season long US is they brought him up but we're not gonna call talker who really into anything in the majors last season and is a minor league player right now health workforce Whitley in their their other top prospect I I I don't I don't understand what the hold up is so be it Robert

"Kings strengths. Hello. I'm Mark is your thanks for joining us today. Your gifts and prayers help the Lutheran hour bring Christ to the nations and the nations to the church. Thank you for your faithful support. Now, here's our speaker. Dr Michael Ziegler. A young girl in her teenage sister, wait along a cobblestone street. There is a crowd. And so she's having trouble seeing past the grownups, everyone's chattering. Excitedly someone shouts here. He comes crowd breaks just enough for the little girl to slip through to the edge of the street. A man on a magnificent Brown and white horse passes. She looks up and waves. He waves back. Continues down the street surrounded by his loyal subjects. Her sister whispers in her ear now, you are special forever. Because you have been greeted by a king. That's a scene from Lois Lowry's book number the stars a story based on life in Denmark under the rule of king Christian tense. What would it be like to have a king? That's a difficult question for us to answer kings monarchies for the most part have gone out of style. We don't know what it's like to yearn for a king. And so in a similar way, we may have trouble understanding the accounts that narrate the birth of Jesus in the New Testament, if you slow down and listen to the first chapter of the biography of Jesus called the gospel of Luke. You will hear people aching with hope for a king. Not just any king. The messiah. The king chosen by God who would defeat the enemy you listen to the first chapter of Luke, and you will hear Elizabeth rejoice simply for the fact that she had been greeted by the mother of her king. You will hear Mary seeing for joy that the Lord was going to cast down the mighty from their thrones. And raise up the offspring the seed of Abraham you will hear Zachariah rejoice that the Lord has raised up a king from the house of David who will save his people forgive their sins and enable them to serve God without fear. You listen to Luke chapter one, and you will hear loyal subjects waiting for king. Listen to this excerpt from Luke chapter one beginning of the twenty six th verse in the sixth month, God sent the angel. Gabriel to Nazareth in Galilee to a woman. A virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph who was a descendant of David the virgins name was Mary. The angel said to her three meetings. You who are highly favored the Lord is with you. Mary was trouble that his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her do not be afraid Mary you have found saver with yard. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus. He will be great. And we'll be called son of the most high and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father, David and he will rule he will reign over the house of Jacob forever. And there will be no end to his kingdom. Mary said how will this be since? I'm a virgin. Angel said to her the Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the most high will overshadow you. And so the holy one to be born will be called the son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age. And she who is said to be barren is now in her sixth month for nothing will be impossible with God. And Mary said. I am the Lord servant. Beats me as you have said. Angel left her. At that time, Mary got ready and hurried to a house in the hill country of Judea. Does Acuras house and she greeted Elizabeth Elizabeth as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting the baby in her womb leapt for joy. And Elizabeth was silv- with the Holy Spirit. And she exclaimed in a loud voice. Blessed. Are you among women and blessed is the child that you will bear? Why am I so favored that the mother of my Lord should come to me? Soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears the baby in my womb leapt for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished. Mary said. My soul magnifies the Lord. And my spirit rejoices in God. My savior. Lord has regarded. So slowly of his handmaiden for me wholesomeness day generations will call me blessed. For the mighty one has done. Great things to me. Holy is his name. And his mercy is on all those who fear him from generation to generation he has shown strength with his arm. He has scattered the proud in the imaginations of their heart. He has cast down the mighty from their throne. Exalted lowly. He has filled the hungry with good sings. Ritchie is sent empty away. He has helped his servant Israel in remembrance of his mercy. As he spoke to our fathers to Abraham and to his seed forever. My soul. Magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God. My say, your my soul, magnifies, the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God. My safe your. Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months, and then she went home. This is the gospel of the Lord. Oh christ. What would it be like to have a king? Who inspired your soul to magnify the Lord? If we want to try to understand what the birth of Jesus means what the birth of Jesus meant to this group of Jewish people who authored the documents that came to be called the New Testament, and we need to attempt an answer to this question. What would it be like to have a king? Now king Jesus is different than any other monarch that has ruled throughout the ages, but I have found a helpful comparison between king Jesus and this king of Denmark that I mentioned in this that king in Denmark exhibited a strength that inspired his people through weakness and defeat to resist the enemy in a similar way. Our king Jesus exhibits a strength that inspires his people through weakness. And defeat to resist the enemy. King Christian the tents ruled in Denmark for thirty five years from nineteen twelve to nineteen forty seven. He was one of Denmark's most beloved king's every morning, he would ride out on his Royal Steed through the streets of Copenhagen to greet his people in one thousand nine hundred forty the Nazi armies invaded Denmark. If they were to try to fight the Nazis by force. Sounds of Danish people would have died in vain king Christian knew this. And so the first thing he did was order his navy to burn the entire fleet of ships in the harbor so that they would not fall into the hands of the Nazis, and then he ordered his military to lay down their arms and surrender the Nazis took this for weakness. But there is a strength yet is stronger and bullets and bonds, Lois Lowry based children's book number the stars on life in Denmark under the reign of king Christian during the Nazi occupation in the historical afterward of her book. She wrote the Nazis controlled the newspapers the rail system, the government hospitals schools. And the day to day existence of the Danish people, but they never controlled king Christian. Every day during the occupation. He would continue to go out from his palace on his horse unguarded and greeted by his people one story has it that a Nazi soldier asked. A boy standing on the road there who is this man who writes past every day on his horse. And the boy said he is the king the king of Denmark. Is he is a king is his bodyguard. And the voice said to the soldier all Denmark is his bodyguard. Some rulers wheeled economic technological and military might but the true strength of a king is unveiled in the loyalty of his people. What would it be like to have a king? What would it be like to have a person who brings out the best in us a person who because of his great love for his people inspired in them, sacrificial service and undying loyalty? What would it be like if all your every day tasks your chores were lifted out of the realm of survival out of the realm of earning a paycheck exalted into sacred service for your king? What would it be like if the bravery and the strength and the kindness of your king had the effect of making you braver, stronger and more kind. Would it be like Jesus is your king? Jesus is unique kind of king. He's not like other kings, even Mary and Elizabeth they could not anticipate what this king would do. They rejoiced at his conception. But they could not fully conceive of his mission. He is a king who would conquer not by seizing power and taking control. But through weakness. To surrendering power submitting to death, even death on a cross. Why would he be king in this way? Of all the ways that he could be king. Why would he be king in this way? This was God's chosen way the only way for him to truly defeat the enemy. This. I think is where the analogy between king Jesus and the king of Denmark breaks down. It's in the nature of the enemy. See the most dangerous enemy for you. And I he does not launch a direct assault. It's more of an inside job. It's less like a blitzkrieg and Moore like guerrilla warfare or psychological warfare. See your enemy has a two pronged attack. The first of which is to tell you that you have absolute power to decide what's right for you. He will produce you to behave as a little monarch to manipulate and control the people around you to build your kingdom, and this power has a way of corrupting. And eventually your kingdom will crumble and fall. And that's when he launches the second prong of attack, which is to tell you that you are a failure. That you are so riddled with guilt and shame that you have no value to anyone. And if you try to fight him on your own, strengths and breathe bills. Your kingdom. Once again, it will crumble and fall. And once again, he will tell you that you are worthless. Abandoned by your people damned by your God. And so great is his hatred. Did he will delight not just to do this cycle once or twice, but again, and again, even to your eternal damnation if you give them the chance? Jesus came king for this. At every point in his life when the enemy tempted him to seize control and take power for himself. Jesus willingly. Submitted to the father's plan. Willingly served. Even when they were crucifying him. Jesus prayed for the people who were telling him in the strongest possible terms that they thought he was worthless. Jesus prayed for them. See Luke chapter twenty three versus thirty two through thirty five. And they're on the cross at this most extreme point of weakness and failure. And shame. They're Jesus broke the power of the enemy. You remember the ironic? Message. They put above his head. This is the king. Promise king of the Jews. Only the cross of Jesus has the power. To cast down the mighty from their thrones. Only the cross of Jesus has the power to scatter. The proud in the imagination of our hearts..

Through his death and resurrection. He will set you free. We get a glimpse. Of the strength of our king veiled, in weakness in the example of the king of Denmark and his people. When the Nazis invaded Denmark. They began to do what they had done in every other country that is to forcibly begin to relocate the Jewish people and other undesirables and to send them to the work camps and eventually to the death camps. Very few citizens and other countries resisted. By and large. They look the other way concern for their own safety when they saw their neighbors being moved from their houses. But virtually the entire nation of Denmark resisted. Because they were following the example of their week and defeated king. When the Nazis gave the deputation order to move the Jewish people out of Denmark in nineteen forty-three, the Danish people secretly work together to hide their Jewish neighbors. And in a matter of a few weeks, they smuggled almost the entire Jewish population out of Denmark across the sea in their fishing boats to safety in Sweden saving nearly seven thousand lives. The Nazi's thought that the Danish people in their king were weak. But he was they who subverted the Nazi plan. It was their king who continued to rain even after the enemy had been defeated. There is a strength that is stronger than bullets and bombs this week. Loyal subjects all over the world. We'll be singing joy to the world. The Lord is come let earth receive her ching. Let every heart prepare him room and heaven and nature. Sing. What would it be like for you to have Jesus says your king? Would you rejoice with Elizabeth? Would you sing with Mary? What's keeping you from making room in your heart? Maybe you feel like he hasn't been meeting your short term needs those things matter to him. But what is most important is your long-term well-being? And so you'll always find him at work. In your weakness. You will always find him at work confronting your sin and your pride. You will always find him at work. In his forgiving and liberating word. Look at Jesus in. God's spirit will bind you to him with something that is stronger than bullets and bombs. The love and the loyalty. Of your king. You're willing nine invite you to pray this prayer with me. Lord Jesus Christ. I am your servant may be to me as you have said. Jesus. I am your servant. May it be to me as you have said. I am your servant. May be to me as you have said. Ahmen? You're.

Continues down the street surrounded by his loyal subjects. Her sister whispers in her ear now, you are special forever because you have been greeted by a king. That's a scene from Lois Lowry's book number the stars a story based on life in Denmark under the rule of king Christian the tenth. What would it be like to have a king? That's a difficult question for us to answer kings monarchy's for the most part have gone out of style. We don't know what it's like to yearn for a king. And so in a similar way, we may have trouble understanding the accounts that narrate the birth of Jesus in the New Testament, if you slow down and listen to the first chapter of the biography of Jesus called the gospel of Luke. You will hear people aching with hope for a king. Not just any king. The messiah the king chosen by God who would defeat the enemy you listen to the first chapter of Luke, and you will hear Elizabeth rejoice simply for the fact that she had been greeted by the mother of her king. You will hear Mary sing for joy that the Lord was going to cast down the mighty from their thrones. And raise up the offspring the seed of Abraham you will hear Zachariah rejoice that the Lord has raised up a king from the house of David who will save his people forgive their sins and enable them to serve God without fear. You listen to Luke chapter one, and you will hear loyal subjects waiting for their king. Listen to this excerpt from Luke chapter one beginning at the twenty sixth verse. In the sixth month? God sent the angel. Gabriel to Nazareth a town in Galilee to a woman. A virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph who was a descendant of David. The virgin name was Mary the angel said to her greetings, you who are highly favored the Lord is with you. And Mary was. Trouble that his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her do not be afraid Mary you have found favor with God, you will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus. He will be great, and we'll be called son of the most high and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father, David and he will rule he will reign over the house of Jacob forever. And there will be no end to his kingdom. And Mary said how will this be since? I am a virgin and the angel said to her the Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the most high will overshadow you. And so the holy one to be born will be called the son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age. And she who is said to be barren is now in her sixth month for nothing will be impossible with God. And Mary said. I am the Lord servant. May it be to me as you have said. And the angel left her at that time Mary got ready and hurried to a house in the hill country of Judea to Zachariah 's house and she greeted Elizabeth Elizabeth as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting the baby in her womb leapt for joy. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she exclaimed in a loud voice blessed? Are you among women and blessed is the child that you will bear? But why am I so favored that the mother of my Lord should come to me? Soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears the baby in my womb leapt for joy. Bless it is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be a complex and Mary said. My.

And the angel said to her the Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the most high will overshadow you. And so the holy one to be born will be called the son of God.

I am the Lord servant. May be to me as you have said. And the angel left. Her. At that time, Mary got ready and hurried to a house in the hill country of Judea does Acuras house and she greeted Elizabeth Elizabeth as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting the baby in her womb leapt for joy. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she exclaimed in a loud voice blessed? Are you among women and blessed is the child that you will bear? But why am I so favored that the mother of my Lord should come to me? Soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears the baby in my womb leapt for joy, blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished. And Mary said.

If we want to try to understand what the birth of Jesus means what the birth of Jesus meant to this group of Jewish people who authored the documents that came to be called the New Testament, then we need to attempt an answer to this question. What would it be like to have a king? Now king Jesus is different than any other monarch that has ruled throughout the ages, but I have found a helpful comparison between king Jesus and this king of Denmark that I mentioned in this that king in Denmark exhibited a strength that inspired his people through weakness and defeat to resist the enemy in a similar way. Our king Jesus exhibits a strength that inspires his people through weakness. And defeat to resist the enemy. King Christian the tenth ruled in Denmark for thirty five years from nineteen twelve to nineteen forty seven. He was one of Denmark's most beloved king's every morning, he would ride out on his Royal Steed through the streets of Copenhagen to greet his people in one thousand nine hundred forty.

And so the first thing he did was order his navy to burn the entire fleet of ships in the harbor so that they would not fall into the hands of the Nazis, and then he ordered his military to lay down their arms and surrender. The Nazis took this for weakness. But there is a strength debt is stronger than bullets and bonds. Lois Lowry based or children's book number the stars on life in Denmark under the reign of king Christian during the Nazi occupation in the historical afterward of her book. She wrote. The Nazis controlled the newspapers the rail system, the government, hospitals schools and the day to day existence of the Danish people, but they never controlled king Christian every day during the occupation. He would continue to go out from his palace on his horse unguarded and breeded by his people one story has it that a Nazi soldier asks the boy standing on the road there who is this man who writes past every day on his horse. And the boy said he is the king the king of Denmark. If he is a king is his bodyguard, and the boy said to the soldier all Denmark is his bodyguard. Some rulers wield economic technological and military might but the true strength of a king is unveiled in the loyalty of his people. What would it be like to have king? What would it be like to have a person who brings out the best in us? A person who because of his great love for his people inspired in them, sacrificial service and undying loyalty. What would it be like if all your every day tasks, your chores were lifted out of the realm of survival out of the realm of earning a paycheck exalted into sacred service for your chain? What would it be like if the bravery and the strength and the kindness of your king had the effect of making you braver, stronger and more kind. Would it be like to have Jesus is your king? Jesus is a unique kind of king. He's not like other kings, even Mary and Elizabeth they could not anticipate what this king would do. They rejoiced at his conception. But they could not fully conceive of his mission. He is a king who would conquer not by seizing power and taking control. But through weakness. Through surrendering power submitting to death, even death on a cross. Why would he be king in this way? Of all the ways that he could be king. Why would he be king in this way? Because this was God's chosen way the only way for him to truly defeat the enemy. This. I think is where the now allergy between king Jesus and the king of Denmark breaks down. It's in the nature of the enemy. See the most dangerous enemy for you. And I he does not launch a direct assault. It's more of an inside job. It's less like a blitzkrieg and Moore like guerrilla warfare or psychological warfare. See your enemy has a two pronged attack. The first of which is to tell you that you have absolute power to decide what's right for you. He will produce you to behave as a little monarch. To manipulate and control the people around you to build your kingdom, and this power has a way of corrupting. And eventually your kingdom will crumble and fall. And that's when he launches the second prong of attack, which is to tell you that you are a failure that you are so riddled with guilt and shame that you have no value to anyone. And if you try to fight him on your own strength and reveals your kingdom once again, it will crumble and fall. And once again, he will tell you that you are worthless. Abandoned by your people damned by your God. And so great is his hatred. That he will delight not just to do this cycle once or twice, but again, and again, even to your eternal damnation if you give him the chance. Jesus became king for this. At every point in his life. When the enemy tempted him to seize control and take power for himself. Jesus willingly. Submitted to the father's plan. Willingly served. Even when they were crucifying him. Jesus prayed for the people who were telling him in the strongest possible terms that they thought he was worthless. Jesus prayed for them. See Luke chapter twenty three versus thirty two through thirty five. And they're on the cross at this most extreme point of weakness and failure. And shame. They're Jesus broke the power of the enemy. You. Remember the ironic message they put above his head. This is the king the promised king of the Jews.
