"Rina looked at Lorene movies, her aunt mouth Really could only imagine that Hans had no idea how little the word mother was generally used by middle aged people on package vacations. They were in open water, and the sun was brutal. Marina looked around, suddenly disoriented. It was so hot and she was so far from home. Well, Lorien said brightly. Let's go. A young, white clad officer named Stavros led them obediently a school Children onto one of the islands where they would begin their wildlife tour. The Galapagos were bare and brilliant. Back in the distance there, ship waited, hulking and white and patient. Rina looked at it longingly. Although seeing the wildlife was the whole point of the trip, she found the ship's rituals comforting the constant availability of food. He orchestrated social events, even their tiny cabin. Everything outside was too big, too bright. We're at the end of the world. She thought and understood why people used to think the earth was flat. Glancing fearfully at the horizon, she felt as if they might sail right over the edge. She started to cry again and hated herself for it. When with the stop, it wasn't even localized pain anymore. Her tear ducts were just in the habit she set off after the tour guide hot Tears coursing freely down her cheeks, Han sprang to her side loping energetically like a dog. Behind her. Laurean's happy laugh, harmonized with Benjamin Moore's lower rhythmic music. This is the frigate Bird, the guide said. She was young. She was a pretty biologist with her hair and a long blond braid. Her sturdy legs and cargo shorts planted firmly on the ground there, named after a warship, and they steal catches from other birds. During mating season. The males red Air sac inflates like a bullfrogs neck vote is thiss Air sac. Hans asked Serena. She tried to answer him by gesturing, but he still looked confused. After the frigate bird. They spent a long time looking at iguanas. Everyone. Silence is their cameras word and clicked. It was as if they were a group of robots. These mechanical sounds. They're only language iguanas, Rina learned are quite hypo allergenic and would make good pets if only they were not in danger. Hypothetically good pets. Puns was taken by one that looked like a dinosaur, its neck ringed by sharply pointed prehistoric skin mother. He marveled sweetly. Almost under his breath. She wanted to ask him why he was here if he was pursuing a lifelong dream or escaping some disappointment, But this question why are you here was too loaded. After all, she wouldn't want to have to answer it herself. Lorene and Benjamin were standing next to them, and she hadn't even noticed. Rina smiled at her and said she was having a good time. You don't have to be so polite, Lorien said. You don't even have to have a good time. Just be okay. At this Without warning or choice, Rina burst into a full grown sob attack. Alarmed the tour guide came over and put her hand on Rina Shoulder, her blond braid gently brushing her arm. Is everything all right? Suddenly, the world was in motion. Everyone was looking at Rina muttering and whispering thie endangered species scrambled to take flight. Medical emergency personnel were summoned before she knew it. Karina was sitting in the incomplete shade of some equatorial tree drinking water, taking aspirin and applying sun block well, anxious crew members loitered near by scribbling notes on clipboards. Conferring about dehydration and liability. How would she become such a spectacle? She knew what her ex husband would say. If he were here. If they were still speaking, you Goto one of nature's most spectacular places, and you make it all about you. He would say that and he'd be right. After insisting she was fine at least a dozen times. Morita was allowed to stand up Lori and took her arm as if trying to support an invalid. Smelling powerfully of some floral perfume. She was wearing a black and white striped blouse, Gazi and slightly revealing of her bra. And red Capri pants. And gold hoop earrings. She looked fantastic. Rina leaned against her is birds disappeared over the horizon, and then they were gone. Back on the ship. They dressed for dinner at Lauren's Command Arena had brought two new outfits clothing with no past associations. She put on a blue dress, hoping to feel pretty. Her skin felt pleasantly scorched and dry. In the dining room, she and Lorene receded at separate tables, a procedure designed to encourage further mixing among the guest. Cons. Sitting on her right, kept smiling and offering her more wine. He asked what she thought about Martin Scorsese. Is he The one who did The Godfather? She asked. Most movies are so violent. I don't go very much. Judging from his expression, this was the wrong answer. After dinner, the bar stayed open and people milled around loose and friendly. Arena stepped outside to get some air. She'd spilled some of her dinner on her new dress. It was just that kind of day, a hand touched her arm, and she turned around with a prepared chipper smile expecting Laureen. But it was Benjamin Moore. Your aunt's organizing a card game, he said. I'm not big on cards, Rena said. Neither am I. I thought I'd come out and join you. Is that all right? Of course, said, though it was more confusing than all right. He inquired in a gentlemanly way about her health and together, they stood looking at the black water and the indecipherable landscape. Darwin Birds, the understanding of our humble origins that science gave us. That's what you were supposed to see. All Rina saw in the dark was water and rocks. I have a son who's 25? Benjamin said, amusingly not looking at her. He's gay, and he thinks I don't know it. But I d'oh It upsets me more than I'd like it to. He's an actor on a soap opera. It's on every day at one in the afternoon, he plays what you might call a rake. I have a TV in my office. And every day I sit there eating my lunch and watching my gay son seduced women wearing too much makeup. Rina had no idea what to say to this. Maybe this was part of the cruise ship experience along with the dinners and the wildlife tours. You went onboard and told strangers the story of your life. Sometimes they look like their entire face is air coded and gasoline. Benjamin went on. Why did they do that? Sometimes I think that if I had to look at those women all day and kissed them in such maybe I'd be gay, too. I'm not sure why You're telling me this, Benjamin Reena told him You can call me Ben, he said affably. The ensuing silence didn't appear to make him uncomfortable. It lasted so long that Rina felt compelled to speak. She took a breath. Then, she said. I got divorced because I cheated on my husband electronically cheated. I started emailing my high school boyfriend and we fell in love all over again. And my husband found out and my high school boyfriend wasn't interested in leaving his wife, but my husband left me and I don't blame him. What her mother had said. Rina. You've never known how to take care of things. He were always breaking your toys and messing up your clothes. This is the same. Only Baker what Laureen had said. Well, honey, everything happens for a reason what Rina had said. I'm an idiot and a fool. This Internet, Ben said. It's changing our lives. Rina's laugh sounded like a bark. Yeah, it's definitely the Internets fault. That's not what.

"That's fair well another woman lead and directed film that got zero nominations this year and April you mention this before it's not that there weren't a lot of films directed by women this year Greta girl work for little women we've mentioned hustlers directed by Lorene Scafaria we mention farewell which we just heard of directed by Lulu long both snapped completely and it's not like these movies didn't do well critically speaking day got high ratings on sites like rotten tomatoes audiences love them critical acclaim April what accounts for this why can't women break into these major categories when as you said before there were plenty of films directed by women featuring women that they could have could have broken through sure we also had hearing it by Casey lemons right that they didn't receive very many nominations it it's the same issue that we've been discussing for the entire hour who is going to see the film and who has the power to make change with in the voting membership if the voting membership is overwhelmingly white and male they're going to go and see those films or or watch on their laptops the film that reflect their own experience that's not racism or bigotry and discrimination we all do the same thing Hey what's going to make is most comfortable what are we going to relate to most and unfortunately with the with the majority of white men they don't feel as if they can relate to I am a little women or the fare well or even parasite and that's why they're not getting the support that they should so again I think we need to talk about the voting membership the structure of the economy because adding in more people but not really moving the needle with respect to percentages isn't enough and then we need to move forward and talk about whether the economy is even still relevant today we're gonna talk about that we're gonna talk about the relevance of the academy let me get to one more film that people are talking about right before we do that hunter parasite we've met and a couple times it's a movie that's gotten some nominations this year I think everybody should see parasite I loved it loved it loved it it was also one of the highest box office numbers for a foreign film in America what do you think pericytes popularity and its success says about how movie going audiences are changing in this country I think a few years ago a Korean subtitled film wouldn't have gotten a lot of traction yeah I don't know if you saw bong joon hose I think I was his golden globes acceptance speech for a screenplay where he said that if you just get over like that little two inch barrier that are subtitles on movies and I thought was like a very the real point that a lot of people are fundamentally and furious about narratives that are from the U. S. R. aren't about white people and parasite shows that you know that's such a bogus and and such an outdated idea because this is a movie that is it's funny it's heartbreaking it's devastating and it's such a push and pull of emotions that you're watching a director who's you know working with such a rich palette doing so many things at once and I think that's sort of popular repair status that you never know where it's gonna go or what to make of it only that you're watching a genius at work well Stephen Galloway work with time is dwindling here but there's an elephant in the room in April may just mentioned it is the academy relevant is are the Oscars relevant do we need the Oscars to help us enjoy the art of film and directors and artists to appear in films I feel like I love movies frankly I don't watch the Oscars because I don't need them well they all the relevant you would have spent now tool I I suppose you got me there but you made a serious mistake in putting it okay well I think they ought not and and and let's let's make a distinction between you all go through the actual Oscar show which is boring and stodgy and whose only once in the past you three come to life in that with the moonlight but if all of that yeah that they rather sit in the way the S. three Serry established saying every institution at the top of the like it's relevant in two ways number one has a symbolic value it really sends a message about what thank you for what you should be and so when you get people of color visible on the screen when you get them winning awards when you see women coming out and getting for instance of visual effects award please send a message maybe sublimity and and also loaded with with us up overnight faces an institution they send a message the second thing is they have an impact on the economy of Hollywood the the movies that get often nominated tend to do very well because that makes a big difference in my business let me let me make sure I get April in here because I know she wants to speak on the relevance of the Oscars sure I'd like to push back just a little bit because of what we've seen especially with respect to the women of color and black women specifically who have one either Best Actress or best supporting actress and there haven't been many they have not seen the opportunities that we would have expected so when we talk about violent Davis Octavia Spencer Halle berry Whoopi Goldberg and so on a TV Spencer said very publicly a few years ago that she had to use the she went to lebron James basketball player for funding and in fact she also had to go to Jessica Kathleen white white actors who is not an Oscar winner to receive assistance in negotiating her salary for the her next film in Oscar winner should never have to have that issue and so when we see a you know I agree with respect to the distinction between the actual academy and the telecast we've seen the ratings drop right we know now that this really is a popularity contest amongst older white men we know that having the phrase Oscar winner Oscar nominee after your name may or may not open doors for you one really has to ask whether we should be listening to what is considered the gold standard of the industry but they're only the gold standard because they said they were well in any earlier many many of us will be watching the Oscars on Sunday night many more of us maybe will be at the movies on Saturday night I want to thank you all for joining us is Steven you're right it's still relevant April rain is diversity and inclusion advocate creator of the hash tag Oscars so white able thank you so much Stephen Galloway is executive director at The Hollywood Reporter Dino the Chapman universities Dodge college of film and media arts and hunter Harris is associate editor for vulture at New York magazine thank you all for in this for this hour and enjoy the Oscars remember your find the one a podcast where ever you get your podcast it's a great way to catch up on shows in gas that you might.

"Benefit of it at at this point is sort of everyone collectively getting to point their fingers at something and say you know that's wrong that's an injustice so there's an there's some of that happening and but even that I don't know it's so noisy by now and I just remember when talking to you know older generations and then saying like we've lived through times like this we've lived through the sixties. We know what this is and you know Nothing but respect act to them but they haven't they haven't lived through this. I haven't I mean I'm I'm that generation that kind of straddles this time period. Great so like I feel like if you were born you know between like I don't know seventy eight eighty three or something like that you were not raised with it. But it's such a part of your life and and now you know and that it's a very weird age to continue to grow with this. Is this phone. I wasn't touched to this. Four years ago my seventy one year old mother is on her phone on. My last movie was about my mom being you know having her relationship with our iphone at literally opened with my mother getting an iphone and calling me on it all the time but also the relationship relationship that she had with it. It was In ways it's like a cure for loneliness but it's also this like it's a new discovery for her so we have so many different generations nations reacting responding. And you know my mom wondering how to take a Selfie it. I'm like Oh my goodness it's a lot. It's a lot to unpack unpack at any age. So I I don't know how we come back from that. I mean I've always thought that that generation you're describing right now that kind of middle one maybe even like pushing up the very early XS That their power in getting to see the world before and after and really understanding it is what makes them I think maybe the ultimate storytellers to explain what happened to us right. You know like I'm Gen-x I'll take it. I'm Jenex I guess. Yeah I I mean I think just because we remember when you know but we don't. It wasn't like we were so far away from it that we weren't a part of it when I was a freshman Ashman College So I was like a year younger than people. But but technically a freshman in college I remember member going like I do this thing called email with my friend Cara and my friend Cara and I use email. It was the way that we kept in touch with each each other. Like that's crazy that's crazy. I don't feel ancient you know. But that's that's wild. And so that's why even Hustler's could be this recent period piece because you know this list was reopened. Two thousand seven that that was. That's when we start our stories two thousand and seven. It's a different time on earth you know. And that's true like we were just talking recently. We're doing American graffiti film. Made in the seventies about the sixties sixty and it makes the sixties feel like a lifetime ago and right so many ways hustlers is that same decade gap but it also feels like a lifetime ago I love American can graffiti that influenced nick and Nora so much. Okay well. These are solid picks to for to what he got. I number three I. Here's the truth. I WanNa talk about thirty dancing. I really do but I'm going to talk about the birdcage. Because the arcade I think is another perfect film. I also think dirty dancing thing is a perfect film but this is hard. This is hard you guys. I'm curious to hear these arguments for why both of them were perfect films. I mean maybe as you talk it out you will decide which when we get there okay. Okay well listen dirty. Dancing dirty. Dancing is is a is a perfect film. It's scene after scene a iconic moments. I think that's what is why dirty dancing housing has has a place a special place in my heart. Because I didn't just see it sixty five times when I was a kid but I re watched it recently when my boyfriend away from wasn't home and I was just like screaming out loud like I was a child again and Mike Crush on. Patrick swayze has never gone away My crush on Johnny Castle will never go away. The director of the film Emil Arlene No. He made dirty dancing and then sister act and then he died of AIDS A year later. So 'cause I was so I remember when I looked looked up dirty dancing recently because I was like who made this. Why how has he not made anything since I I saw that and I thought how tragic because it's it's really an unbelievably believably well directed movie but Yeah it's just iconic scene after iconic seen it it's it's remarkable but it. It brings the birdcage which is probably the reason that is probably the the number three Mike Nichols I mean one of the greatest directors of all time time. Elaine may wrote the script based on the Kasha falls it's it's just a it's like a play. It's like a perfect play that he turned it into a piece of cinema. But which you would understand because you play writing specifically started writing. Yeah I I started writing plays I mean it was writing screenplays. I put that in quotes wrote screenplays in like fourth and fifth grade so I was always interested in movies but I really found it through theater and even finding that it was like really elite via David Mamat Being obsessed with the play Glengarry Glen Ross and seeing the movie Glengarry Glen Ross and being like Oh my God now i WanNa i WanNa do all of invests I wanNA take plays and turn them into films. I even took films and tried to turn them into plays. I tried to put shallow grave up as a as a one. The I'm very interested in the the melding of theater and film but which is interesting because it seems like there's such this easy negative negative catchphrase people say which is like it's just filmed play like yeah but it's that's I mean sure and obvious I mean I think right out of the gate Mike Nichols Michael Says No. It's not because he brings you in this like incredible water. I don't even know what it is a helicopter. I'm not even sure how he's how he captured captured this but he he you know brings us through Miami into this into this club and kind of this beautiful water and for the first time and I think he's saying right then this is not a play But then he also lingers and rests on characters characters and you are you see Robin Williams. Go through trying to explain this. This moment and Madonna the Madonna. You know and it's like just a the cameras hangs on him and allows for these actors to have these brilliant moments and But it's it's the writing of it is feeder and and it's so contained in. It's such a perfectly constructed story And it surprising prizing to think back on how modern it felt telling that story in the nineties. Yeah you know it was. It was an I mean to look at it now. It's strange. How much time is passed? And and yet I don't I don't know I haven't really seen a piece of art like it. It had so much fun and and tonight you know in another way. Maybe it wouldn't even be made today. I'm not I don't even know I'm not sure how it would be made would be like you said like you know taking twitter algorithms and trying trying to type it into something you know. I think it's such a beautiful relationship that Robin Williams and Nathan Lanes Characters Have with each other and they signed like a palimony any paperwork at some point because that that's how a head of time it was it was before gay marriage was legal and that's insane and And to watch to them have this long-term relationship with each other. That's so rooted in love. But they're like opposites and and you know Nathan lanes characters so outlandish and F- put the love is so perfect and and for the sun to love them and for for all the drama that unfolds in the movie is about these people trying to do right by each other and Not hurt each other's feelings and and yet they're hurt they're hurting. You know the sun shows up and is saying this isn't possible well. I can't present you as my family. And his father is so hurt by that and and to see them All try to whip themselves into shape for this cover you know for them to understand the motivations behind it while also being hurt and every moment that you go I could hate the sun for this. Then he goes. Forget it. I don't do this and the father steps up and says no no. No this says right. So it's it's sort of this beautiful tug of war with characters who are all trying to do right by each other while not trying to compromise themselves and yet you know the the situation is larger than them and it's it's politics and it's it's people that are very different from them Showing up and and and these two families interacting with each other it. It is actually a story for now in a way it is is a beautiful story for for right now I mean what you're making me. Think of right now is how often in storytelling we think of any need conflicts to make a movie. uh-huh in conflict is to people yelling at each other in the way you you framed birdcage is. It's a movie where the conflict comes from people trying to be nice to each other which is completely a different than how we usually imagine. What good conflict? That's why it's so beautiful to watch in such an incredible lesson because You know when I was reading the medlar that that was an exercise in empathy because I made my mom the main character and I made myself the side character and I was trying to think you know what is my mother like. I think we've people have seen the movies about overbearing MOMS. But they're often told from the KID's perspective and and What's it like AAC you know yes? Oh my mom's calling me. My phone's ringing. It's mom again but what's it like to be her. What's it like to be the person who called five times and didn't get a call back and the loneliness that is involved in that and and And her desire to put her love to a good place and yet here she is trying to be good but she's failing at it and her daughter does love her but is grieving and it really is just about them. Grieving differently and and And so oh you know I i. I like the tension and drama. That comes from that place and we make mistakes too and people there's human error and and you cross certain lines and you do things you shouldn't done and So that happens of course but I think the beauty of the conflict and the tension coming from them all just loving each other and being hurt by each other and trying to take that love and do the right thing and trying to take that pain do the right thing and and it's so funny and sweet and heartbreaking and and and it's hilarious and you're laughing at that Gene Hackman. You're laughing at him. I mean he has a monologue about foliage that I think is one of the funniest on planet..

"That is a solid solid solid. I pick I mean I hope they hear you because it's shocks me that this is not on the list it's shocking it is shocking. You're ready for your number two. I think so I I think so I this has to be because they haven't updated it because the social network would I think undoubtedly be on the list. I can't imagine imagine. That doesn't crack the top one hundred. I mean why because of its news relevance today it's a perfect movie it's Yes it's it's it's the movie movie of today it just is I mean it certainly is resonating right now. with what facebook is uh-huh known for at this moment but it's so much more about the Internet and its effect on US socially and so two to turn turn Mark Zuckerberg into a character which he is of course but To create this person who this opening break-up scenes it's like five or six minute break up scene in which the skies just called an asshole and dumped and that being the impetus of WHO's who sort of in this kind of revenge you know this creation of face Mashan. It's so incredible. Such incredible writing. I mean obviously Aaron Sorkin. Obviously what David Fincher incher did and they score Unbelievable score unbelievable the sound of it as as much the storytelling as as the writing itself. Not so fun to hear Erin shortly classics Organ Dialogue delivered just through incredibly intelligent College students I thought that was such the. That's already a twist on on all the other. You know sorkin movies and shows I feel like that automatically was is Refreshing and and Y that opening break-up seen as so Interesting and you just see this person who he doesn't have what it takes. Is the ill equipped for these social interactions to sit across from his girlfriend and to to talk about these parties. That the you know These these clubs ebbs and to want to be a member of these clubs and the exclusivity of it to sort of see that to to turn it into something to get the psychology of these people who the people with this impersonality template or sort of conquering little pockets of the world. Yeah we have like twelve guys in Silicon Valley eighty to thank for every thing happening to young girls and boys and thank might not be the word idea. Yes thank might not be blamed aim but but the idea that they've determined so much of how we interact with each other. Twitter is a place where we all Give our thoughts and short-form bursts and and Everyone can read them. And it's so strange. I mean if there was a there was a wall you know in a town square. I don't know how many people would even choose to write on it. I I really don't but you you put it in this place and now it's there forever and it's kind of incredible so facebook being this place that you know for me. I remember joining because I was like. Oh I want to see what the people so I went to high school with are up to. That was incredibly alluring. That was Moved three thousand miles away from them. I didn't go to a reunion You know like very curious and so that was my reasons for it and I I quit recently. I think my pages are still active. I think they're your active forever Even though you know I'm not technically on it anymore. How was it to quit because I want to? But it's it's the high school friends that I'm terrified advises. Never find them again. I'm just choosing instagram instead. Because somehow that feels like less obtrusive to my life and I took twitter quitter off of my phone. I quit facebook. I like this I I like pictures more than words in a way as far as like. Oh I'll take this um photo album. You know this slick kind of online digital photo album mine Pictures of dogs creative person. There are so oh mini opinions on twitter about film. And what films should be that. I can imagine trying to be a creative person trying to write a script. Hearing so many people's thoughts can be paralyzing housing. Yeah and you certainly can't write that way. or at least I think some movies are really trying to write that way taking the algorithms and turning owning them into dialogue and taking catchphrases and just applying them to everyone. It's a little hard because you know. Yeah we all talk the same and we all have this. We're all having collective experience. We're all reacting to everything collectively. That's so strange and it's not just you know. Did you. See Game of thrones last night which is already a form of pressure you know and with spoilers out there but it it's it's it's beyond that it's our own it's our. It's our own relationships ourselves. It's our relationships with their identities. It's our it's like the yearbook staff has taken over. And if you don't live your life out loud if you're not an extroverted in person if you're not if you if you're private at all obviously but it's it's impossible. It's impossible to navigate. I'm so grateful. I wasn't raised raised in this age. I find it impossible. I don't know how they do it and yet you know there's some obviously there's positive there's a positive effect it's just it. It feels like the experiment failed. It does feel like that and it feels like for a little while. They're resist hope that the experiment was succeeding because it felt like. Oh Oh look. This is a place where there's unification there's a place where people who felt alone no longer feel alone and I don't mean just interacting with each other. I mean I'm like this this and I don't know anyone like this. That was the hope of it anyway. was that it would be like you know. You don't need to travel around the world to understand each other you can look online and see how this person lives their lives in. Isn't that incredible. And I don't know I don't know if you I know the information superhighway has it was known. I don't know if information should travel on a superhighway not sure I'm not sure about that. Like the social network is the one film that I actually really want a sequel to You know because it's a period piece when it was made in a way just by a couple full years and in the time since it came out the world has changed again around that film. White Mark Zuckerberg represents I think eighth grade was the sequel to social network I know him made the movie but I I do think that I think that I don't really care what those guys are up to anymore. I don't I don't care what's October up to. You know I care more about the impact on us all and so I think that was its own that was the sequel to it. But I I know what you mean I mean it is it. Is it's damning. It's you know it's remarkable what took place I think it was also I mean to get back to the movie itself. Obviously I I mean it. It's kind of just peak venture peak sorkin Peak Eisenberg. We Garfield you know we. We got to see Rooney Bruni Mara. I've I've felt like that was my introduction to hurry to and it's my favorite Rooney Mara to be honest. I mean she's great always but I see that female character character even doesn't often give them the same. I mean you know. In a shows he does obviously but for some reason films. I feel like that was a very strong female Character for him to write and Enda perfect vessel for Sorkin also through that character. I mean I took from this movie I I did. Because I I found the the two depositions to be such an incredible framing device for the telling of the story to to go from that breakup seen to this this long walk across campus back to his dorm. And that's where we hear that unbelievable score just like the tension of VAT underneath you know is like it's so it's so minimal and it's such a perfect theme and it sounds like the future but it's the timeless you know there's something about it. That was so incredible but his long walk back and doing and then bringing it back to the room. Where then we're hearing hiring voice over but it's what he's writing you know? And so and then his friends start showing up at shows up and and you know he's creating this thing net that then goes viral. I mean it really is an unbelievably were structured script. It's really remarkable and So that that for me is there's there's so much to say and then for it to end with him hitting refresh you know over and over. I know incredible thing in that time since then. Learning how. They've programmed us to hit refresh. Yeah programmed us to keep scrolling like them talking about instill Silicon Valley training our brains to need the time constant refreshing the way that he does see him and I don't even think when the movie came out I was so aware of of the design of APPs to make us addicted in that way. Yeah sort of like. Oh it's sad for him. He's refreshing look at him. Go into really. I've been afraid I think to watch this movie sense. It came out. I haven't and you're making you really really want to. Oh Yeah I don't know it's it's it's just a historical work at this point. We have all these movies for example about like the Vietnam War and yeah and a lot of that argument is like well. We need the movie to commemorate the fact that the movie that the experience even happened to which I feel like this is our one of our generations wars. Yeah it is. I mean it's It arguably is the biggest impact I mean. I felt like you know I'm old. I'm like forty one. I felt like we didn't have anything anything till nine eleven. It did feel like there was almost nothing you know and then nine eleven and the Internet and you know those two new moments Impacted everything I think that we're experiencing now and it's scary. The idea of making nine eleven movie. It's scary. I thought again eighth grade was was incredibly brave to to try to tell the story of a thirteen year. Old Girl trying to navigate this this world right now and But it it felt like there was a giant hinge you know. And then a more insidious hinge. She knows something else. That happened happened that that happened without us really knowing it and and now we're just on APPs talking about the APPS. Now we're just on twitter tweeting about tweets. The snake eats its tail. No matter was so it's I don't know how we come back from this. I really actually don't think the experiment failed and I'm genuinely not sure how we come back from this because I remember with everything going on in the past two years in our country and you know and I I should say there are some incredibly positive effects like I said people realizing that they're not alone but also the unification of certain communities and the strength in certain communities. Oh my gosh I mean at this point I feel like the. It's it's these like police videos and things like that that are that's the.

What three films they think should be added to the next round of the American Film Institute? Top One hundred list. Our guest for this episode is a director. Sure I really really adore her. Name is Lawrence Kataria. She directed the films. Naked Noise Infinite playlist. She did seeking a friend for the end of the world and she did this ears hustlers a movie see that I have seen several times. It is just a whole bunch of wow laureen who've gone to unspoiled. We are so honored to have you here to talking talking about the AF. I list as a person who I think has been making really phenomenal films for several years. You've been making great writing great things. I think he was such an interesting perspective. And I want to what your perspective is on this list. What we need to add to it? My Gosh. I didn't realize that they had an updated. It in this long and been veers credible movies is in the in the tens really grateful so I probably went further back than than recent history. There's so many the incredible movies in the last nine years though high probably put more nostalgic names on here. Then I'm saying there will be the master you know You know there's so many great recent films moonlight all. These movies probably deserve to be on there. I'm knocking to talk. Even though they deserve deserve to be on. You might take the master because I know you're a fan of that. I'm a huge fan of the master and Phantom Threat. I watched that now every time. It's on ATV. I mean he's obviously the greatest so I can't I can't help it the master I could talk about. I'm still not going to. I'm still going to go further back into into my childhood maybe a little more. That's fair 'cause Avila Garcia bit of the master even hustlers. Yeah I mean the dynamic between that mentor mentality. See that friendship that's That love story between two people that you know when the relationship is kind of stronger than you have with like your parents parents are your children or your partner that I was really interested in that. Yeah that power struggle that dynamic between two people. Let's talk about but like let's give me your number one pick what needs to be added to the top one hundred. I'm GONNA say the Princess Bride your personal after my own heart. I love this movie. I think it's perfect. Perfect Rob Reiner. Who is I think made? I think he's himself has made three of the top five of all time I do. He's the underappreciated underappreciated for for his affect on on cinema what would you runners up from him. Oh I mean when Harry met Sally and this is spinal tap princess. Bride is William Goldman. I mean it's perfect script the cast. It's so unexpected. It's so delightful. It's it's perfect seen after perfect seen so many iconic moments in it I think it fails the Bechtel test. which is a bummer? But it is it is is in spite of that I think it's still a perfect movie. I agree I think it hits so many genres it. Perfectly it crosses fantasy at crosses buses romance. It crosses comedy it isn't everything movie it's adventure it's all of it it's a it's like a true adventure story and it's so oh funny Wallace Shawn. It's so funny. He's so naturally funny. But it's such a perfect role for him and Andre the giants I mean. I was a kid grew up on wrestling so absolutely if it wasn't George the Animal Steele all I am also in love with the Andre Giant so um but Mandy Patinkin I mean ridiculous. Those three people those three characters Yeah every every speech the fight that the two of them have the sword fight. I mean it's like it's incredible and and carry out this under appreciated in that to Robin writes kind of our first time really seeing her. It's just extraordinary. Exactly like we have kind of this. Carrie always is ripping off the character that Kevin Kline or they're all ripping off the same basic. Douglas Fairbanks Linian model. Also we don't have like Robin Nine hundred anything on the list that moustachioed handsome hunk. Yeah and he was A mysterious at that moment because you didn't know who he was. He was the dread pirate Roberts. She didn't know exactly who it was. I remember when I was a kid. Liberal hidden it was him. I shamed myself for that 'cause I genuinely was like it was it was Wesley But yeah in the framing of it to the storytelling of okay. This grandfather telling his grandson the story of it and and this kid who was like afraid. It's a kissing book and he doesn't want to hear about that but he does and the moments that we snap up in an out of it. It's it's really. It's incredible it's beautiful. I've always quietly thought that if we're going to take one film from all live cinema idiot. 'cause citizen Kane is of course at the top of the list Area of the files great monumental tons of effect on the pop culture tons of effect on cinema itself on style and technique but as a totally different question. If you'RE GONNA take one film and just use it to show an alien what what was cinema like wended. Why did cinema do I think the princess bride is perfect? Pick yeah I think especially I mean if you're GONNA look at screenwriting too I mean you know Again Rob Reiner did brought it to life and all these actors but William Goldman has done for writing is extraordinary and he really is the voice of it and I think that's what you know as you look at all all the great movies that have been made I feel like the writing is really what stands out and often an unsung hero of of films. uh-huh because because it's easy to look at the visuals and look at the stars and everything. But I I feel like what William Goldman did. There was like teach US writing with a in his script. He really did. I mean he's certainly actually taught us writing with his other books but but he really did teach writing. What do you feel like you learn from it because you started as a writer I did It perfectly juggles a lot of different characters. You know it still has that like hero's journey quality to too but so many of them have their own journeys So it it. It plotted that really well. It showed this like You have like you know good and evil. But they're they're a complex you know they're not even the evil is is its own form of evil and Many think he he just brought so much humor to everything so much heart to everything and the relationships the sort of interpersonal dynamics between people it was really what I think he when he shines on. But yeah that the framing device the grandfather all of that was It's so smart such a well. Well told story. It's also like it's scenes you know and I think that's that's what he did. So brilliantly was create these scenes these conic moments and of course what Rob Reiner did with them is extraordinarily but you know the dual facing off with cups of You know I oh kane powder who is like that was next level. I mean it really is so extraordinary. How seeing characters react you know but but really the scenes in these sort of cameo moments and you know Billy Crystal's You know Cameo moment it's it's such a brilliant little tiny stop on the way you know on the road movie so I mean as a person who I can't help but keep writing road movies in a in a way. Even you know hustlers. Is there in cars for much of it. And depending on. WHO's behind the wheel? There's a a has a lot to do with it but How nice the cars? How nice the car is exactly? But yeah I as someone who has written a couple of you've road movies and you know Nick and Nora's was trying to be The worst kind of road movie in Manhattan the last place. You should be doing a road movie. Three seeking a friend very directly was The meddler even was in in a way. No Them mom cruising around Los Angeles and But Yeah I the Princess Bride as as that adventurous. You know they're they're on foot their boats and everything but in a way it's a it's a journey in a in a road movie movie and And so them going from A to B and all the stops along the way and all the characters that they meet along the ways fast. I think you're exactly right and I think it's really perfect. Example of taking something that is sort of seen as a formula you know the hero's journey and figuring out how to make it yours you know because we're in such a period like taking ideas we know and people even just like subscribing to much to attempt lately. Save the cat or something and figuring out how to take something being known and still make it personal yeah it. Just they'll remake this and they are going to remake. I don't so I think they just announced it the other day which is no no. This one is hard for me. I mean you know I get it but this one feels very I don't know singular and And it's that tone the tone of it it is what's so perfect and it.

"What she terms godmother lighting to evoke the gangster films at the past finding opportunities within production design and wardrobe to make the film more heightened or realistic and why she always knew Jennifer Lopez was the perfect actor to bring Ramona to life. Please note mischief. Aria is joined by Mr Mackay after a slight delay. She opened the discussion by taking a question from the audience. I thank you thanks for being here. I think Adam's first question Russian for me would be how did you do it. I don't know Does anyone want to ask a question from the audience yes time yes. The question was about Ramona's justification for why they did what they did her speech in the diner. Let's say talking about the Wall Street. Guys is yeah I mean that's Ramona's justification for it. I think we all know the difference between right and wrong and obviously when when they sort of crossed that point of no return yeah for me it was is it was meant to be a story about different values these two friends who have these different values this kind of friendship that that is so alluring that someone like. Ramona could make this justification make something very wild and criminal sound almost almost reasonable so destiny. I think approaches it in a different place. We certainly hear Elizabeth. Julia stiles character express her feelings about it so for me. I just wanted to leave it up to the audience to to watch the story of what happened and make those own their own decisions whether or not these justification sounded right. I was in a screening where people applauded at that moment. I'm anti is certainly never expected that necessarily because you know Ramona's a in another way an anti hero so I think it's really up to the audience to decide and obviously it's an individual thing so sure please welcome Adam McKay to the stage in the LA. It's fine oh my God oughta apologize. Hi Everyone I've been. I've been making it work. Don't worry about it right Dan. In waters. Yes is please I was just answering a question about the article which year here now to receive this compliment because the article was sent to me by this man and his production company Gloria Sanchez Jessica Elbaum and so I was lucky enough to read that in the summer of twenty sixteen different time yeah yeah and then it was really just a writing assignment at the time so wasn't directing GIG but I was interested in it from the ground up. I thought it was incredibly well. Written story very touch on so many themes. I wanted to talk about and yet certainly inspired all of that. I wish I had a chance to talk to the real girls at the time I mean I'm sure the truth is stranger than fiction so I wish I had that opportunity but you know corporations crimes things the way of doing that but I've spoken to them since or at least a couple of them since they're obviously on the other side of this kind of leading normal lives or reflective about this rosy who inspired the destiny character has a book out now. If anyone wants to read it the sophisticated Hustler I'm serious really they all have books coming out so I would of course they do yeah. Have you the fuller picture. There's probably three or four books too so I Apologize College is for. I think I'm late right I can't believe it early L. A. Early early. I have some questions first just off. Can we give it up for Lorene Safari for an amazing amazing movie congratulations off incredible weekend so I obviously went through a little bit of this with lean so my big question to start with with Lorraine is why this movie You've written a lot of scripts. You've directed movies. we saw with this movie that it was at one studio went to another another. You had to rewrite it over. It was really hard to get this made. And why did you hang in there with this specific story. I ah yeah like I said I. It touched on these themes. I was really excited to talk about gender as it relates to the economy not at aw no no I. I didn't get to go further with it but no those those were the themes gender as it relates to capitalism certainly I thought it was a world. We have seen a lot of another. TV shows and movies and seen in a strip club at least in everything ever including your work and remember the great seen actually it's amazing to hear the dancer talking about her real estate during that seems incredible but yeah I really wanted to show it from the dancers perspectives lives and and and and see the world through their eyes and and and kind of talk about the value system and that's a little bit broken broken between men and women and what we're what we're valued for. was there a moment when you were writing the script when you were working on it where where you wrote something and you knew. I have to direct this. I mean it was probably like there. Were a lot of song choices. In the script about eighty percent of the songs that ended up in the movie were in the script so the Chopin pieces that play throughout where the and scenes that I heard the sound of the the movie in a way so it felt very much like I honestly the the first thing that I wrote was that fur coat that scene up on the rooftop and I felt like I wanted to direct it right away and I just want to give him credit because you know it was a writing assignment I was I was not the first choice to direct the movie necessarily but I remember it was being sent to Scorsese whose great and I love his work. I wish that would have been cool too so but it was sent to Scorsese and I remember Adam knew how much I want. It's a direct this right out of the gate. I was raising my hand and and I remember you saying I I hope Scorsese passes and he did but that was very kind and and it wasn't it wasn't kind it was was really apparent right from the beginning with the script that there was a rhythm there was a style that you were completely matched with and you you know the the original idea for the project was that it would be a scorsese movie but from the perspective of the strippers who are behind the mobsters hers and little. Did we know that lien was the person to pull that off and what I WANNA ask him. One of the more impressive things with this movie V that you pulled off was somehow. It's an entire movie about incredibly beautiful people taking their clothes goes off yet. It never feels exploitative and I wanted to ask you about how you approach that that your characters are always in control that there's there's always a dignity to your characters. Yeah I mean the theme of Control that runs through the movie we we just apply that to the camera as well so there are certainly scenes where characters feel out of control and then there are certain scenes where characters are fully in control and Ramona's entrance and Ramona's dance one where I think Romano was in total control of where the camera went and every cut that we made so it wasn't that hard one telling the story from their point of view to walk in their shoes and and but it was also an approach to it like a sports movie we we wanted to highlight the athleticism of it the strength and power in it certainly there were certain choices made stylistically that that helps in that way just sort of the large format gave it that larger than life quality to it so yeah there we just I just wanted to really show the the power and the strength that that it also takes. It's it's actually really incredible and did you guys get into and you were talking with. todd your DP Todd Ben Hazel. WHO's incredible please. How how technical did you get with the idea that these women would have strength and have foundation as character like were you talking about like the angle of the singles or everything just gangster lighting sometimes godmother lighting we'd call it like that harsh top light or that harsh back later and low angles like things that that I think women over twenty-five aren't shot in so yeah I mean you know shooting closeups an an eight k. like being able to use the xl two which led US modify resolutions like depending on again with what kind of control or our power. We're supposed to feel during that scene yeah it was it was we shot listed everything ahead of time we we shot in two thousand nine days so we didn't have any time nine days yeah I. It looks like a movie we that you would be like. Oh that's forty four. That's like thirty eight. I couldn't believe it wing. Todd told me that it was like running the whole time and and and yeah the the prep and it really takes someone like todd in this league. New York crew and the Ad Department was insane so so yeah it wouldn't have happened without that group of people and that kind of dedication and Saturdays and Sundays of doing homework and everything hanging yeah so the other thing that's really remarkable about the movie is that I I feel like you take no shots off like there's no scene where like all right. It's a single. It's a medium like every single shot in the movie has like a life to it and when I hear that it was twenty nine days like this. I just can't believe it so I'm curious when we talk about todd hazing you who is a guy that Lorraine brought to this movie. I hadn't heard of todd and Lorraine was like this has to be. I DP and boy was she writes. I'm curious what your conversations were like. When you guys were talking about each day when you were shot listing I mean. Did you know that it was going to be a mammoth undertaking or were you just like let's just go for word or was it long lens and hope and pray or was every single shot worked out it honestly was every single shot shot was worked out. We certainly left room for to spontaneity into be surprised there were moments were todd and I we're banging our heads against the wall onset trying trying to figure something out we'd walk away and come back and the operators had solved it and we'd go great so it takes a village but todd and I I I think because of the ups and downs and the the the the studios switch there were were nine months where todd and I were in Mike soft crap along with Mitchell travers the costume designer and Kayla enter my editor who edited my last film and will I'll work with her forever along with Todd and Mitchell but we had a long lead so we went and saw movies and and went to museums and exhibits ebbets and looked at photography and did you look at when you were doing that process I mean I were at the DJ's. Everyone knows that part of the process is is really important where you look at visual references where you kind of get inspired. I'm curious. What your Barbara Nikki who we actually ended up getting as our stills photographer geography onset she's known for filming in this world and in this community and that kind of gritty glamour that was really exciting to find an golden. I mean we we. We just looked at a lot of we we wanted to to show something glamorous that that felt a little bit heightened. our rules were sort of that. You know the production design is where the realism had to be found and the wardrobe job we could make us heightened as we wanted because it was this period piece that we were trying to capture and the camera depended on depending on a scene would kind of dip the big toe in in one or the other and so it was just such a long process todd also comes from the music video world where I mean he shot those is Janelle monet videos. Make make you feel like I can't make me feel. Make me feel. Oh God I'm old. I can't even reference it cool but but he when I saw those music videos I was like who is the woman who shot these and and ended up being todd and so and Mitchell travers are costume designer worked with him previously and talked to me about him. So soon as I met him he. It's his entire philosophy. I mean he he just wants is to shoot women with power and so we spoke so much about the lighting the color Palette the the ways in which we would approach the club again the athleticism athleticism we watch sports movies we watch gangster films we watch friendship stories the kinds of friendship stories with those great power dynamics between like commendatore and amend..

"We're talking with Marine Scott Perry about her new movie hustlers. I'm going to tell you about something that happened to me when I watched like the movie in a public theatre because I found it really distressing. There's a scene in the movie where a woman who has done something that she's not proud of is paid what she thinks is is three hundred dollars and it turns out she's paid not three one hundred dollar bills but three twenty dollar bills and when she realizes that the couple of men in the theater who laughed and it was so upsetting for me to watch the movie and have that reaction and it took me out of the movie for a second but then it put me right back into it because it got me thinking gene about what this movie is trying to say about the way that men value or don't value women and the way they do do not value what women do in the workplace and the opportunities who needs that women have presented to them. What's funny that that moment I mean when I watched it with an audience there's been audible gasps and most most of the audience is horrified and then you pause for two seconds three seconds and you see guys whispering to each other. I overheard that's a good idea. or we gotta try that so yeah it's it's is it any wonder that that the story feels like long long overdue and in so many ways not just. I think that how people devalue women certainly how they evaluate strippers and sex workers and that that was part of why I felt like I know these girls I can relate to these girls. We have a collective experience. We're all having a collective experienced. What's that and navigating this broken value system. We just are and yet. These women are judged so much. There's such a stigma around what they do for a living and so I I feel like a real responsibility to the community to to talk about it without power. Dynamic is not limited to strip clubs happens bends in law firms that happens in business. It happens in Hollywood and yet a movie like Hustler's that does really well is still the outlier at what point do does a movie like this not become the exception but the rule that you can have a movie written and directed by women that stars women about about women and people don't say it's a fluke. I don't know I mean we. We had a good weekend. I think money talks. That's the unfortunate theme of of the movie as well as the is that is that money you know rules the world still which is part of why I was interested in seeing women earning it and women providing for their families because we're often seen spending and shopping in movies but not often seen earning and providing and there were questions of early early drafts of the script or are they good enough. MOMS and I just thought wow I mean not only is it not that kind of a story but everything these women are doing is is in in theory for their children and for you know for their kids to have better lives than they had and I think that's incredibly relatable. We've all been offered the American can dream in some way we we've all been told if we just work hard enough we can we can make it and and I think we've seen that systems are not in place to help people succeed obviously and certainly not places to help marginalized peoples succeed so even though this is a crime drama ultimately we even though yes these women did bad things and and we know what those bad things are and we know where they crossed the line. I couldn't help but want to pull the mirror up to all of it all of us who are all participating in an miss and in one way or another own ask you about casting the USC Annenberg Annenberg Inclusion Initiative has studied the top twelve hundred grossing films over the last twelve years from two thousand seven to two thousand eighteen to who lead roles went to a Latina actress over age forty five a suspect. You know that is yeah Lopez. That's at center and that's it so when you're thinking about casting and not just Jennifer Lopez but people like Liz. Oh people like constance. Wu people who have different body shapes different ages different ethnicities. How intentional were you about making sure that even for the part wasn't written for a specific acidic person that you made sure that you are casting so to speak a wide net yeah. I mean I think when you cast a wide net it's not that hard to find just really talented people of all kinds and so that certainly was part of it was just casting a wide net but I very specifically specifically thought these people were ultimately just right for the roles and I wrote some of the parts for some people like Liz. Oh and Cardi and traceless traceless said an Meta tally. I wrote a lot of the roles for these specific. Women and I'm so proud of of what the cast ultimately became because it does really feel like we get to speak to a lot of different female experiences and I know so for some of the strippers that I spoke to they at different times have been destiny in different times have been Ramona and so it's nice to see that people are able to step step into the shoes of of different kinds of women also and and feel seen by a woman that doesn't necessarily represent them demographically that that's actually very beautiful thing.

What impact does monetary policy have on your money?
"With the federal reserve's action front and center what impact Dave does monetary policy have on your money well you have to look at really there's two types of policies Dan there's monetary policy which is what the central banks can do by either raising or lowering rates and of course there's fiscal stimulus in fiscal policy that we've seen already with tax cuts between the two we have a lot of stimulus going into the market what that does really is pushes up asset prices and that's really been the goal you can go back ten years to the Great Recession in Lorene interest rates pushes up risk assets which are defined as equities and real estate we're seeing that that is happening emergency probably more of that but look around the world Dan and you can see what's really happening you have a number of countries around the world that have negative interest rates literally pain negative rates so when you we have a rate that we're doing now we're still one of the highest rates in the country but at some point in your probably pushing on a string what does that mean can you elaborate on that yeah pushing a string is it doesn't really make a difference by lowering rates are we going to stimulate the economy anymore than what's happening right now and you can look at everything else that's happening with trade in the conference of manufacturers in that there might be some concern in the markets going forward but right now G. P. is good yeah we're looking at what it's going to look like for the rest of the year probably more monetary policy before the year is out he is Dave Spano the president and C. E.

got it twice okay I grabbed a well one of them was a pop yeah then I figure that's not a big thing and then once I grabbed a now I think no one of those the it was there seems to sometimes be those not things in there like an excessive amount so I thought it was from a client or some yeah well one of those once we almost eighteen years okay it but we also have an area where people leave there's food is there yeah the fax left for mediums someone's an ice cream yesterday that's right yeah guess what the theory that people will eat anything left over from a meeting it'll be gone in seconds whether it's picked over Halloween candy stale bagels in the afternoon they came for a morning thing suspicious looking sandwiches but you're so hungry it doesn't matter them it will get eaten the other side of the browned out yet that's right people eat anything at work and is so yeah people just a psychologist for the Cleveland Clinic and an author of six different books on mindful eating says one of the big reasons one of the big reasons why people eat anything at work the number one reason it's free that's right we are motivated to try three things because there's no risk we also think all we're getting a deal I'm getting a sandwich I'm getting something I won't need to get a snack and of course you know we mindlessly either at work yes we do you know we had an afternoon slump and many of us go look around this looking for food yeah we use that we do it here yep we do you require any I know what you brought in the veggie fries today and I had seeds of cran raisins and an orange and also eating other people watching other people eat triggers your anger our mindless eating so like if you're going to a meeting and you're like I don't teach us Yanis it totally yes yeah so there's no you're not alone no you're not you're not alone it's a good way if you started a new company to have a cannibal it's good way to meet people yes it is because people want to come in that's right individually wrapped things these days though butter fingers Twix stuff the good stuff yeah but scratched ninety later honeys I love behind he's they're hard on your dental work as the H. suddenly that matters the crowns are not what they used to be okay do you have any theories on like if you were just to say the sex is staying on a guy is his fill in the blank happy trail okay ice okay ice ice happy to death but how do you see a happy trail you know like when you first meet somebody talk about on the beach okay or what is the second sexiest physical feature on the kind of guy you think is is happy Terrel really know but I like that look the yeah but that's the right word once you've gotten to know him he wanna let your fingers right here explore what about the women thing his eyes a smile bingo the smile the smile the smile research says that for when it comes to the ladies in here about what they're attracted to and a man a good smile comes in first yep and the rest of the the the the next thing I mean then average size junk is seconds what we what is average like size junk is better than like you know extreme every on bottled water bottle I don't believe that this second most attractive thing that women find about a man after his smile is his charm and I disagree with what did that in short hair big hands and nice back muscular arms and facial hair who did this survey I I don't believe I've been back you're such a liar it's all because how we do know the size of the average size junk fine Durex condoms commission I'm like this right now yes Sir eight women and that is going to be like that's weird we don't know that tell me have been physically attracted you know that is such a liar I go to the next one that's not it at one the theory what was the theory that theory was said that directs could commission a study said he then we may have and lock them lie about average size junk because they're trying to sell average size condo I guess come in second place just smiled no bad pun intended sack okay do you would you believe this theory that figure you know you're arguing style is the key to a happy relationship I too I think that that would be a good one because if you flare it's not good if you can figure out how to you need to argue you need to work through things together and if you can figure out how to do that image kind way right it's probably wonderful okay we'll hear accusatory year stamp your feet yeah years this is this is a I study and this particular this university I said there are you know they do studies they do say he's a university of studies they wanted to figure out the okay so there's the dominant argue were in so that somebody just so screams at your and yells at you and you just said quicker responding and you're gonna not let anyone catch up okay then there's the non argue which is this this I don't have a powder keg harder and then there's the hitting below the belt get up old stuff that you're ready resolved but you got to throw it out there again there when you did the US yeah in the end and then there's the disinterested I don't give a crap whatever you want they're ready they're regularly okay there's that and then there's pleasing where are you just hate all conflict can you just likely to just agreed to stop the fight track your rate whatever you wish yeah you're right sorry how long so what's our theory so the theory is that you got to figure out if you're arguing style meshes all so if you think on the second date you should try to have an argument we can make it through that no but they do give you find someone if they're arguing style is hitting below the belt I don't know you can change that in a personal rant you know many digs up by your old John again well and the last shall order the know you've told them something vulnerable and then they bring it up to you as a wave he I dad is that was into the gear for you that is the biggest one that I think is the big red flags so that's where he got to do it like that he just got to figure out are you in simpatico when it comes to how you disagree it's a big gala and sometimes you agree to disagree and sometimes people I have a style that they have in their younger that they don't have in their older like you know member asking my mom wants is like what did happen with you and dad she civil after I get done you know after we get done and our kids are so little it wasn't always such a hectic thing and we weren't always moving you know then you find I mean I'm not I wasn't the girl of the fifties that I was in the sixties there isn't just gonna just because my dad was very much and I think this was a generational thing I'm the king of the house yeah you my wife and children will follow you as I say so you know that suddenly that size is not appealing anymore or whatever systems so you gotta figure you're our green style all right and if you figure out your arguing style and it works it that you have a pretty good chance of having it in a happy relationship yeah so says the theory while I'm from the university of Columbia the the university that does a lot of studies threat study university is that the university should be one of those yeah there's a all day everyone commission check but I mean there's some it you always get good stuff out of it I mean you people have to study things to learn yeah yeah that was so.

Talking down our democracy and I'm, appalled that somebody.
