A highlight from Suspiria (2018) (Horror/Supernatural) Movie Review
"What's happening everybody, Kira and Ben back again. So last week we kind of kicked off Spooky Season with Cannibal Holocaust and this time we're going into a different type of horror. Today we're going to be talking about 2018 Suspiria. Ben, we were talking a little bit off screen, off camera about this, but tell me your history with the movie. So I had never heard of it. You had suggested it and I was like alright cool because you get some great suggestions and then I turned it on and I saw the lady from the Doctor Strange movies, the very first Sorcerer Supreme, so I was all excited because I think she's great and that's where it stuck off. Awesome, yeah. So obviously this is a huge favorite of mine and we will talk about our opinions later because I want to hear everything that you have to say, but I was first introduced to this because movie I was such a fan of the original, the 1978 one by Dario Argento and then of course when I heard that they were doing a remake I was obviously hesitant, but I do like the remake. I do think it is really good in certain aspects. I think Luca Guadagnino, I'm so sorry again you guys, my pronunciations are bad, I think he did a really good job paying homage to the original while keeping his fresh and exciting and who doesn't love some witches? Right, covens, covens and I grew up in Lynn's Salem area so I actually got to see and hang out with some witches in my lifetime so I thought that was pretty cool. You know of course I have my own thing about witches, they're not always evil like people portray so like you know, you know, harm me none, you know, I've been around them where I know that they don't actually want to harm anybody, they just want to do good and study nature so, but you know, there's also the bad aspect of everything and you know, the good and bad so I thought it was pretty cool. Absolutely and what I like about these witches is they kind of just harm their own, like obviously there's like that one scene when they're like playing with the police officers and things like that, but I like these kinds of witches, these kind of sort of lurking, wanting power witches, I don't know if there's another word that I'm thinking of to grab that. I totally got it, I thought the fact that, you know, if you listen to what they say, they were there during the, you know, during the war and they were like, they were the only source of escape for women at that, you know, for that time period and I mean of course it's fictional but you know, really if you think about it during World War II there was no escape for women, I mean there was a manpower organization like the SS and all them and if you were a woman at that time period, well you were screwed. Absolutely and what I like about this movie, similar to, what was the movie we just did, oh, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, there is such an absence of men in the film that I think is really refreshing, even the male, the psychiatrist that we see who counsels some of the girls is actually also played by Tilda Swinton, so she plays two roles in the film. Oh really? Yeah, so that's her in drag. Oh that was awesome. Isn't that awesome? This is an amazing job because I did not realize that. She looks so good, the makeup in this movie is so good and there's a scene that we're gonna talk about later because you know me, I'm all about practical effects versus CGI and if you guys know the scene I'm referencing, you know it's brutal and you also know there is no CGI involved, so I think that is very, very cool. So let's dive into the story for those who aren't familiar. So we are our main protagonist, Susie Bannon, she is traveling all the way from America, I like assume in my head it's Oklahoma, I don't know if it is, she's on a farm, what did you get or if I'm misremembering? I think she came from the farm but then she went to New York because she said she watched the lady do the play in New York. Right but she said she had to take a bus to New York. Oh did she? Oh yeah. Maybe Philadelphia, I don't know you guys. I don't know, she said she saw it three times though, so I mean. Maybe Philadelphia. She's on a farm. Yes, yeah, she's a farmer. She's on a farm and she goes to New York to see this play because this is, because she is applying to go to the dance academy in Berlin and so she is obviously a huge fan of the work, she memorizes the dance from VOC, which is what they end up performing and she's so excited to come in, she feels like she's being drawn to this place, this is a phrase that she uses over and over again, is that something was pulling her to this dance academy and she goes and obviously she only starts waves because she is so good and the teachers, aka the witches, can see that in her and while this is happening, one of the other students has gone missing, we see her first in the beginning is played by Chloe Grace Martinez and we see her go missing and it's kind of like, oh what's happening and you kind of, as we're learning about Susie and we're learning about the dance studio, we kind of see the unravelings and kind of the tensions that are building and as of right now, to our knowledge, everything is set not against a supernatural background. Yeah, yeah. They give hints when she's talking to the psychiatrist but you don't actually know what's going on. Absolutely. She uses phrases like she's in my head, I can feel her, she's trying to control me. It's all very interesting. So then Susie decides that she is going to ask to dance the lead role in the VOC. Now this role, the role of the protagonist is supposed to be incredibly difficult to dance and is an incredibly hard dance. Now Tilda Swinton's character, Mother Marcos, does not believe that she can perform this but she allows her to and while this has happened, the scene right before this I should have said, another girl in the dance studio starts freaking out in rehearsal, starts calling everyone witches, is crying hysterically, is very upset and I think it's Blanc takes her and she says, okay, go outside, we're going to talk and kind of leads her into this sort of secret auditorium and it is actually a secret rehearsal room covered in mirrors. Now Susie has come to the front and she says that she is going to dance the role of the protagonist in VOC and Mother Marcos, Tilda Swinton's character, touches her feet and I love the subtlety of this like motion of her touching her feet and you kind of see that power going in, that sort of like energy transference and that I think is the first main tip off of the witches and from that Susie starts to dance and she starts and stops because she messes up the first time but while she's dancing, it keeps panning to the scene, in the room where the other girl is and as Susie starts dancing, this girl's bone, this girl also starts dancing but in the reverse of what Susie is doing, so it's like everything that Susie is doing is happening to this girl but instead of controlling the motions, her bones are breaking and she gets contorted into this horrifying mess and this is the scene I'm talking about, it is all practical effects. Yeah, it's pretty cool. She gets twisted like a pretzel and you see her agony and every time the girl makes a step or a move or something, she just twists a different way and you just hear the bones cracking and it was really gross. It was really gross but it's also crazy, it's awesome. So while this is happening, obviously it is happening without the knowledge of Susie or we should assume it's happening without the knowledge of Susie and once she is completed, she has to go lie down because she's exhausted and Tilda Swinton seems to be very pleased with what she was doing and the next scene is I love the visual. So one thing I love about this movie is the visuals of it. I think it is so visually stunning, similar to the original which is also visually stunning and I think what is so good about it is Luca Guadalajira does a great job. Even though this movie is so contrasted to the first, it is still within the same veins, I believe. So we have Dario Argento who is very neon, very bright. You have this incredible, vibrant background that all these horrors are happening against and then in Luca's, it is much darker. Everything is much more grey, it's very monotoned and with that, I think it's because it's telling a different story. In the original, you don't have the backdrop. Obviously, it's still set in Germany but they don't focus on the backdrop of the war as much. So this one was introduced as a substory which people during its release debated if it was very relevant to the story but I think like you had said, it talks about giving women an escape and it kind of sets I think the tone of this kind of searching and escapism and trying to leave the situation that you're in. Yeah because if you listen to what the doctor says, his wife got separated from him and she gets trapped and she has to go to the concentration camp and things happen to her. So you can see what a woman by herself had to deal with compared to what a woman in the dance group had to deal with. So they were protected in the dance group whereas the wife wasn't protected and later on, one of the witches comes and says stuff to him that she knows happened and I think for me, it was a way of showing the contrast of is this what happened to her and I think in her mind, she was like had she been with us, none of that would have happened to her. It was really cool. It was. I think it is fine just like you said. It adds more to the story but I can see where the same criticisms were like it is pointless. So after that, now Susie is dancing and they are going to perform the show and they do a fine job. It's a fine show. What happens after is so Susie is befriending Sarah and Sarah is played by the ever lovely Mia Goth. I'm a huge fan of hers. Maybe we can talk about doing X or Pearl. Are you familiar with this? Well we can talk about it but so she befriends Sarah and Sarah can kind of feel what's going on. She kind of understands that there's something lurking that is not seen and the witches start to catch on and they are going to punish her the same way that they punished Patricia I think her name is and Susie and as Susie starts dancing and she sees that Sarah is in agony, she immediately stops and kind of chastises them for being like what are you doing? Why are you doing this? And they kind of take Sarah away and that's the last we see of her for a while. Now throughout all this, I love this coven of older witches because I think their relations are so interesting and I thought this in the first one as well. Obviously you're going to have it from the point of view of your protagonist but I always thought like seeing more of the coven and seeing more of their politics I thought would be so cool especially because it's such a large part of this one and I like I love that one scene at the table when they're all like eating in their quarters and they're talking about who they're going to vote for and I think that was really I thought that was interesting. What are your thoughts? Is that when the woman stabbed herself with the scissors in the throat? No. Or is that later on? That's later on. Okay. No, I thought it was pretty cool because like it so when you're talking to the doctor, the doctor talks about the three patriarchs of this coven because he's told by Patricia about this and he names the three patriarchs. So one of the patriarchs is sick and dying because she's old and she has to transfer herself into a younger body. Right. So all of them have done this except for this one matriarch is that needing of a body. That's why they're doing the dance. I think the lady that plays the Sorcerer Supreme she sees in the girl that they have like the girl that is really good at dancing. She doesn't want to do it to her. She's like I kind of don't want to do this to her. You can see like she's starting to become fond of her. I just thought like the contrasting between the three mothers and like their little inner group battle and the other witches around them. Not the three main but the rest of them like all trying to vie for you know sucking up to the one that they wanted to win basically. Exactly and that's what I thought was so interesting and that's what I was saying because it felt like politics and what you wanted to see and it's so interesting that you said that Marcos became fond of Susie because in my mind it always felt like she was kind of grooming her for something in a way that she could see that Susie was strong enough to handle a Suspirium but was still hesitant and didn't I don't think realize because I think she could also see the pull in her but couldn't recognize what it was because she would always say this one is so strong. Yeah I think when she came into the room mm -hmm and she said you don't have to do this you can leave right now I'll make you forget that's when I realized that she actually gave a crap.
A highlight from Legend
"And welcome back to cinema vino. We've got a two man game going. It's me and Sean Jordan. Just one little handshake over here. Coming at you. We're like a garage band, two members just coming at you with some hard rock. Tenacious D. Yeah, exactly. Or the black keys, the white stripes. Yeah. Yeah. Both of those. Yeah. Yeah. There you go. Summer Chaos is now, this is the home stretch. Mine Meg. If this is the white stripes. Yeah. I think you're going to have to be. All right. Yeah. You're holding down, you're playing. Lying down the ones and the twos. Yeah. You're playing the quarter notes. That's about it. Yup. No fills. Which is how I like my drums anyway. She made the notes in the vamp up to the chorus. A little bit. That was one of the first songs I learned. There was a little bit of flavor. It was like a rice cake with a little bit of salt on it. Not a lot of salt, but a little bit of salt. Yup. So, this is a penultimate episode of Summer of Chaos. We're going to talk about legend. No, it's not penultimate. We've got this and then we've got Battle Royale. Oh, and then Dread. You're right. Dread. So, this is. And Robocop. This is penultimate to the penultimate. Yeah. Penultimate recording. And then I think Robocop's a gap. It's just kind of in between. Right. We just toss it in just because it sounds. Gap here. Yeah. Just a little bit of something to fill in. It's like a caulk that we used in between some tiles. Don't like that. But that's the metaphor I went for and there you go. It's a grout, ladies and gentlemen. Yeah. Drinking that imagery, won't you? So, we're going to talk about legend with Tom Cruise and we're drinking some white board dough. For those of you who are coming in late to this series, basically, we do a random wheel. We spin a wheel. We put a bunch of varietals on the wheel and also like beer and cocktails. Whatever the wheel picks, that's what we do for the Summer of Chaos. These movies were all picked out at random. We put random movies in the hat, drew them out. So, pretty much anything goes for this entire summer. And so, same thing with wine. Anything goes. So, for this one, we got white Bordeaux. This is Chateau La Fresnel. This is a 2022 white Bordeaux. Little bit of background for those who may not know. We were actually talking about this before the podcast that Bordeaux is now known as a red wine region. But up until about 50, 60 years ago, it was a white wine region. It was known for its white grapes. Bordeaux are going to be... White Bordeaux are primarily Sauvignon Blanc with some Simeon and some Muscadel. There's a few other grapes they mix in there, but those are the main three that you're going to see. Then they're mainly Sauvignon Blancs. Is this kind of like how like the Republican Party and the Democratic Party kind of switched identities somewhere in the like 40s, 50s? Around the New Deal? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Basically. Now, it's like five, six to one red wines to white. It used to be the opposite. You'll also see a type of wine made from these same grapes called a Sauternes, which is going to be... It's made completely differently. It's going to be a lot sweeter, a lot more sugary. Those are very fancy, high -end, expensive white wines. So, basically, just from the price tag alone, you'll never confuse a Sauternes with a white Bordeaux. These are going to be more affordable, you know, $15, $20 range. Not super sweet. It's a little more tart, a little peachy? Dry. And the first thing I think of is Sauvignon Blanc. And these will have some characteristics of the same characteristics of other Sauvignon Blancs in the world. They're going to be a little bit grassy, a little bit citrusy, grapefruity. They're going to have some of those same kind of flavors to them. The main thing that's going to distinguish these wines is going to be... I've heard it referred to as minerality. I've heard it referred to as wet concrete. I've heard it referred to as chalk. Tasty. Yeah, limestone. But kind of that dry, refreshing edge that you don't necessarily find in other parts of the world. Kind of like what brings the harshness of mineral water versus the softness of tap. Yeah, exactly. That's a good way to put that. Yeah. It's got like a bite to it. It's got kind of like a... Little edge. Yeah. And you don't find that... Like for example, New Zealand's often been known as grapefruit bombs. Big fruit bombs. And you don't see that as much. This is my favorite region for Sauvignon Blanc. They're balanced. That's why I love French wines in general. They don't go out of the way in any one direction. They're nice and balanced. And so it's great for that. This one has that nice... It's got some grassiness to it. It's got some fruit. But it's dry. And so this would be great. I mean, people say seafood. I'm not a big seafood fan, but kind of a lighter seafood meal is perfect for that. You're not a big seafood fan? Not a big seafood fan. Period? Not really. Shrimp? I mean, I don't mind shrimp. It's not my first thing I go to. Lobster. Yeah, same. Bass. Catfish. I don't mind catfish. I've had some catfish. That's garbage. Catfish is garbage. But I remember when we went to Barcelona, we took a cooking class. It was on our honeymoon. My wife and I, we did a... It was all seafood. We had some paella. We made some paella. We did octopus. We did squid. I mean, we tried the gamut of seafood stuff that they had in the Mediterranean. It was like... That was a good indication. It's like, I don't like this. This is not for me. Yeah, not my taste. It's fair. It's fair. But I will say that we did a wine kind of similar to this, a Spanish white. And yeah, this would be perfect with a wide variety of seafood. Some of the stuff that's bigger and more buttery, you might want to go for a white burgundy, like a chard. But this is a good hot weather, outdoor type of wine. It's nice and refreshing. I like it a lot. Yeah, 25 bucks, not a whole lot of money. But yeah, any good wine store, you should be able to find a nice white Bordeaux section. So look for those while the weather's still warm. But now, legend. Talk about this movie a bit. This was released in the United States April 18th, 1986. So... You say in the United States. Where did it come out before? It was released in Europe the year before. This had a very difficult production. This was a difficult movie to realize. It has a lot going on. So this grossed worldwide $23 million against a $25 million budget. In 86? That's a big budget. Huge. And for several reasons. A big reason for that is that when they started filming, a fire broke out and burned down the 007 studios where they were filming at Leaves in England. So pretty much had to build new sets. That's probably all the magic. Exactly. Yeah, some of the Sprite costumes caught fire. Or the unicorn hair. I can imagine, yeah. It's one wrong look, that unicorn horn. Yeah, it's gone. But they had to build new sets. And Ridley Scott's original cut of the movie ran for between two and a half, three hours. So... Jeez. And the final cut was like, what, hour and a half? Yeah. The version that I watched, I don't know if you saw the original 89 -minute version or if you watched the director's cut. I think I watched the 89 version. Okay, I looked around. I had trouble finding it. That's the version I know the best, so I went back to that one. The director's cut? No, the original. Oh, the original. Yeah. There's a director's cut out there. Is it like two to three hours? No. So basically, when the final cut of this print was released, Ridley Scott watched this cut and freaked out and thought that basically American audience couldn't grasp this much plot. And so he cut the film basically in half, down to 89 minutes. And when it came out, it got mediocre reviews. Obviously, he didn't do well at the box office. He just watered it down too much? Yeah. Gene Siskel put this as one of his worst movies of that year. And the international cut that came out the year before was 93 minutes. And it got a little bit better reviews, but still not great. And then in 2002, somebody found a full work print of the movie in a can somewhere. And so they took that out and restored it, remastered it, and really Scott added about 25 minutes to the cut that the director's cut. So it comes in at like 115 minutes, give or take. And he and Tom Cruise have gone on the record saying that's the version to see. I was going to say, I was reading that Tom Cruise saw the movie in theaters and was like, that's not the movie we filmed. Yeah. That's not it. I mean, you could imagine with that much cut out, it's going to be almost incoherent. It's like a whole other act. Yeah. Yeah. And so basically, the director's cut, yeah, it's a whole other fleshed out thing. And I have seen that once. I saw it when it came out. I think I've got that on DVD somewhere. And the one thing I would say is it does, it adds a few scenes. It makes the motivations a little bit deeper, especially for the character of the darkness and his relationship with the princess, Lily, and the stuff there. It's kind of just, not to cut to the chase, but it just kind of comes out of nowhere. He's just like obsessed with her. He's just like, oh, I must have her. It feels very rushed. It feels like a plot of necessity, not like a plot of, you know, any reason. They're just like, we need to stall him. How do we do it? Love interest. Yeah. And it's like, it's like I'm telling a story to my three -year -old and it's like, I got to kind of get something else in here. You got to kind of yada, yada, yada over motivations. We're coming in for a landing too quick. We got to just shoot. Pull up. Yeah. But so basically, this is a fairly straightforward fantasy story. Tom Cruise plays Jack, who is a protector of the forest. I was a little vague on what exactly he is. Is he a bard? Is he a ranger? I mean, he'd be more druid than anything. Is he a druid? Yeah, I couldn't place what he was supposed to be. It's like, this is where we need Travis. Yeah, he would be. And if Travis had an answer to that, I would be impressed. Because to me, they don't spell that out at all. I guess he would be more of a ranger. Yeah. Because he didn't really have any sort of like shape -shifting ability or had any ability to talk with trees. Really, his only thing was he had like one -on -one connection with the sprites, right? That's about it. Yeah, he had good buddies. A working relationship. And he wore a loincloth. Yes. So there was that. Dude, he was showing that thing off. He was. And that's what I, you know, in that situation, it's like, check out my hairless legs. My supine body. Yeah, check out these smooth legs. But, so Mia Sarah plays Lily. Now, this is her starring debut. Next year, she would go on to play in Ferris Bueller, amongst other things. Her hair when she transforms into a dark version. Awesome. Now, this great production value is great. Everything, costumes, hair. For 25 million, it better be. Yeah. Yeah. And those are real unicorns. Yeah, they better be. Yeah, I mean, now it's like, that'd be 100 million plus to make this thing. Easy. Easy. Easy. So yeah, Lord of Darkness, played by Tim Curry, who is unrecognizable in the mountain of makeup. Honestly, but might be one of my favorite representations of the devil. Yeah. Like, this makeup job is incredible. And in theory, we'll get to this later, that should be great casting to have Tim Curry. Yeah. I almost want to see more of Tim Curry in the face. Like, see more of him, you know. Almost, you know, Faustian devil and Daniel Webster kind of thing, where it's like, you can see like him being rascally or whatever. But yeah, so Lord of Darkness seeks to cover the world in darkness. Plot out the sun. Conveniently, yeah. Typical plot device. For that, he needs the horn of a unicorn, which is the most sacred and majestic of all fantastic creatures. Basically, he wants to take the unicorns out of the world, take the horns out of the world, and the world. The representation of purity. The horn of the unicorn. Yes. The world goes dark. Everything turns into kind of a barren, frigid tundra of darkness. He just has goblins that work for him inexplicably? Yeah, incompetent goblins. Yeah. It's nice. But they rhyme. They talk in riddles. They do. They do rhyme. But you know, he kind of has the James Bond villain of incompetent people working under him, you know. If anything, that's the thing that slows him down as much as, you know, these James Bond villains. Like, you hired a bunch of idiots. He also has, like, the Bond villain thing of, like, doing a lot of monologuing? Yes. Let me vamp for five minutes while you prepare your thing to destroy me. Yeah, let's me blather.

Wizards Vs. Laser Eyes for the Future of Bitcoin
"What's the vibe over in Bitcoin Miami given what's happening on chain this time of year? So I think that this year there's probably going to be a significant clash between the laser eye maxi tribe and sort of the magicians, the wizards. So Mia and my cofounder udi were sort of thinking about how can we amplify that situation even more. So what we've been doing with this NFT project that we have is that in order to get whitelist in our project and we don't do the usual thing where people are people are active in Discord or stuff like that. We have a specific thing called the wizard school. So in the wizard school, people do quests like sending a lightning transaction, interacting with the Bitcoin system. And the most recent quest that we launched was to wear a wizard hat to the Bitcoin Miami conference. So take a picture of yourself with a wizard. Because I think what's happening right now is that the existing laser eye tribe, they really blame all this original stuff on the wizards, even though they were the ones that sort of went develop, deployed and went to bat for taproot for years, and then didn't find a use case for it for years until someone thought, okay, why don't we just, why don't we just treat this upgrade as an arbitrary data blob and just feed any random stuff into the blockchain. And that's where the taproot wizards came in and said, okay, let's do some magic with this arbitrary data. So they think that we are destroying the chain, which they're the ones that's sort of got the upgrade into Bitcoin. So we just we've already been seeing a lot of animosity from their camp and there's been tweets that they've made to the effect of hunt a wizard if you see one in Miami, so we thought, let's just flood the conference with wizards. Let's show them how many we are. Let's make it a part of the wizard school to show up in a wizard hat so that maybe we'll make them feel outnumbered. What exactly do they get if they show up in a wizard hat and take a selfie? They get a slightly higher chance at a whitelist for our NFC collection.
Senator J.D. Vance Gives Us the Latest Out of Ohio
"Vance senator Vance, welcome back to Merck first. Thank you, Seth, how are you? Good, good, good, good. I wanted to play the clip we've been playing a view drawing that little stick through the crick and then seeing all those pollutants well up. Can you tell us what the latest is from east Palestine and how our Ohio, ohioans doing without the meaningful assistance from this administration. Yeah, well, a couple of big updates. So first of all, they still have not fully cleaned up the contaminated site. So you think about what's causing those chemicals in the water. It's the leaching from the soil, the soil is still contaminated, and they haven't cleaned it up. This is the second thing, of course, the Biden administration continues to largely be MIA, especially the Department of Transportation. The EPA has spent a little bit more time in east palestin. I've actually been happy about that, but everybody else seems to be ignoring these guys. Why is the president not going? If president Trump can take the time, why does Biden not go? Well, by the way, president Trump coming, I think, actually really forced the Biden administration to do more than they were doing at the time. So any action we've seen from them, we've seen in the last week since that visit from president Trump. Look, I think Biden thinks these people aren't his voters. He doesn't care about them. It's really that simple. I think the Democrats see American politics in a friend versus enemy kind of way. They didn't vote for him, so he's not going to pay him any attention. It's disgusting, but that's the way that he sees it.

"He gets better over the course of like four very thick door stopper books. So I think that, oh, and the Monkey King, of course, himself is flawed. He's a trickster. He will do whatever it takes to get to his goal. He will steal. He will lie and cheat. And because for me, because he thumbs his nose at authority, that's why I like him. And a lot of these heroes are people who are behaving badly in service of the greater good. So going back to the end tamed, for example, for example, way we should very flawed as a character. But we like him. We want him to succeed. And then the other character in the end team is like the foil, right? So he's the one who we should reflect off of. So we can see like what you're supposed to get, you know, the reality of it and the social media face of it. So I think that this is something that's also present in bitter medicine where Luke is. Mysterious and he has a really specific moral code, but he has to do things that he doesn't agree with. In service to the greater good of what his boss tells him to do. Nice. So there's plenty of us to moon over and yes, we love a tortured soul, don't we? Oh yes. Yeah, I mean, throw in, throw in necromancy, and I am there. There you go. Lucy's just given you her ideal date. I don't know what it is about that, but my other favorite character is race Lin majer from dragon. Oh, I love him so much. Yeah, right? I definitely have a type here. Yes. I know me and many other women will fight to the death over who gets to claim raylan. But it's like it's the bad boy with the heart of gold trope, right? Which is sort of Luke, but I kind of had to tune that because he is, as I like to describe him 17 anxieties in a bespoke suit. Who is also has a heart of gold ish maybe. We're not sure. No, that's nice because as you say, that is the trope. You kind of expect to uncover the heart of gold, but you know, what if the heart of gold is not quite a sparkly as we kind of come to possibly anticipate from this very recognizable trope. I think that's also why I like race Lin because actually he's a total shit as well. I mean like anyone who leaves their twin brother to die in a Whirlpool is pretty bad at that one time he was nice to boo boo is what we all hold on to. And I think what was nice about raisin was he knew he could not be redeemed. And I appreciate that in a hero and I think that's a little in Luke also. He's like, I know I have done a lot of bad stuff and I'm not even going to pretend that that's redeemable.

"Because that was interesting and something that other people hadn't done yet or had been doing, but hadn't been picked up by traditional publishing. So what challenges did you find to working magic and mythology into romance tale? I mean, does it kind of up the stakes and make the very much more engaging and the conflict greater or are there other challenges and other drawbacks to it? You know, I have read so much urban fantasy in my life that it didn't seem like much of a challenge at all to have magic just be part and parcel of the environment. So I think these characters view magic as a very much an everyday thing, even if the rest of the world doesn't know magic exists or only tangentially encounters magic. So with that foundation laid out for me, I felt better medicine was a continuation of that sort of worldbuilding. And with regards to the world building in that are medicine, I really wanted it to reflect the way our world works in a sense that we have a bunch of different cultures existing at the same time together and they may contradict each other, but that doesn't mean that they're in conflict with each other. So there was really only one cardinal rule for the world building in bitter medicine and the rule was every single culture and magic is legitimate. So it's not just that's quite interesting because like you say with a lot of fantasy romance, you do have a very sort of normal background magic. There's quite a few agencies that seem to be quite popular all or associations and things. But I did like how you were like, yeah, as you say, it's not just your magic rules. It's the other ones as well. So is that kind of what you felt you brought to the fantasy romance?

"I guess the next thing was, well, what can we do? We can do all these costume dramas. We can do historical dramas and historical K dramas are really, really popular also. And then after the historical dramas, then you get the fantasy dramas. And now they're just really accessible so you can just turn on your TV or your streaming service and there it is. The latest martial arts drama from China. So what do you think it is about the center genre in particular that has such a universal appeal? This is something I've talked to my husband about and we've kind of turned this subject over because I did not think growing up here in the U.S. that Chinese dramas, especially in type would be the hot commodity right now. It is a little odd to walk in to the Barnes and noble and see emd. For example, MX TX, sorry. Just on sale there. But I think, you know, aside from these gorgeous actors that they've got both men and women, and the costumes which are fabulous, I'm sure a lot of people watch for the costuming and the sets, I think the slow burn between the characters, whether it's romantic or a friendship that's developing is really appealing to people. There is in both K dramas and sea dramas, less overt sexuality, and I think American audiences find that refreshing. We have so many Supernatural dramas and I'm not just citing the show Supernatural, but we have so many dramas in the U.S. where the chemistry between the two leads is really necessary. And the procedural is king here. And you get almost the same episode, but format for many seasons and it's like a will they won't they kind of thing, but these leads and it can be very overt in the sexuality and shows that's not always the case.

"But the focus remains on immortals like theories and demons and beings that have achieved immortality or longevity through careful cultivation of their discipline. And I think cultivation is such a terrible word to describe what the martial artists and these magicians and wizards are what have you do. Because it makes it sound like they're gardening, but it is intense study in their discipline. It's really funny you mentioned that because I remember when I first started watching these things and they're all talking about cultivators and cultivation and I'm like, what on earth is going on? Like, what is this? What? Right, and it's not the greatest translation, but it is essentially their deep study. So in order to better themselves in order to gain the energy needed to become immortals or to become more powerful in their discipline, they have to do daily study. They meditate. They train against other practitioners of the art and you can cultivate just about anything. One of the classic figures in Chinese mythology is the Monkey King who started who was born of a rock that had cultivated enough energy to split open and birth the Monkey King. I'm a little curious about how a rock studies. So The Rock was actually situated in it had really good real estate. Okay, it was stuck precisely in a spot between I think heaven and earth, where the energies falling from heaven and coming up from earth would be absorbed by The Rock and eventually The Rock became magical. And it spat out the Monkey King. That is very cool. I love all these different mythologies. It's so interesting. But you mentioned that, you know, these kinds of Chinese dramas have just exploded in the west. And anyone who is a regular listener to this show will know that Lucy and I are big fans of the untamed and she's watching. She got me to also watch word of honor and there's so many of these ones at Lucy watches that I don't know where she finds the time. And. Tell me your secrets. I did not watch 100 episodes of ever night. I did not do that. I still don't understand. What happened to my life? It's very easy to binge these guys because they're so good at the cliffhanger. You think, okay, I'm at the end of the episode. And then they introduce a new element and you're like, no, I have to watch the next one, but it's four in the morning. Oh, I know. And also because there's so many intricate plotlines and you're like, but I'm invested in all of those ones, and you know, just like, you know, if you get one that you're like slightly less invested in, you know, they then have a cliffhanger of the one that you are invested in. You're like, okay, well I clearly have to watch the next episode now. Exactly. So I actually wanted to clarify a little more about Chinese fantasy because shin Shah is really specifically about the immortals and the magics that are inherent to them that are the Chinese medicine and the martial arts. Shows like the untamed are probably better set under the umbrella of a different subgenre, like a sub sub genre called trend. I think that is correct. Shan Quinn, which is basically the melding of eastern and western fantasies. So technically you could say love between ferry and devil, which is a show that I'm watching right now. I would classify it as both Shen Shah and Sherwin.

"Before we get stuck into today's topic, I just want to apologize for any terrible pronunciations that happened during this. I am trying my best, but I know that it may go horribly horribly wrong. So please bear with me. If you haven't stumbled across one of the many popular Shenzhen Chinese dramas on your favorite streaming service, we might have to ask you if you've been living under a rock. Shows like the untamed have become global Internet sensations. And we have to admit that at least two out of three of us were swept away in its wake. Picking up on many epic fantasy tropes of western literature also uses Chinese folklore and traditional religious practices to create its own blend of fantastical elements. In today's episode, we are joined by debut author Mia Tsai. Who is further mixing the two fantasy traditions, throwing in elves and an urban fantasy setting among ghosts and curses and cultivators. We are excited to ask Mia more about Shenzhen and blending different cultural tropes into one epic story. And hopefully you'll also get someone who can pronounce it a little bit better than I can. So Mia, would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners? Sure. Hi, I'm Mia Tai, and I am the author of bitter medicine, which is coming out march 14th of this year from tachyon publications. Yes, and we're big fans of tachyon because they tend to like to publish some interesting stuff, just a bit. A bit more unique than the everyday fare we get elsewhere. But so for those of us who, for those listeners who aren't familiar with Shenzhen, can you explain some of its most iconic elements, you know, in which elements did you really want to weave into your story when you started? Sure. So before we talk about shin Xiao we first have to talk about, which is the umbrella under which all these other subgenres live. So we shot is a genre where it's very old in China and other East Asian and Southeast Asian countries because of the influence of China. But essentially, they are stories of wandering martial artists or perhaps the better word for this a better translation is wandering knights errant in a martial world and their goals are to uphold their honor or further their sect or their clans purposes and they get into all sorts of adventures. That is broken down further into stories of immortals. So if you look at the word shin shots, actually two words in China is Xian means immortals. So you can think of these as Supernatural beings that have achieved either longevity or immortality. And then Shah, which is the wandering night errant deal. So shin shat novels and dramas which are super, super popular now and have only been growing in popularity. We'll have Chinese mythological elements and classic magics like flying or very complicated techniques based on Chinese medicine and martial arts.
Reporter Mia Cathell Discusses an Atlanta LGBTQ Pedophile Ring
"Continues with us. Mia, if you were to speculate how sophisticated and how widespread is this pedophilic ring, at least in Atlanta, I mean, you said 12 people, how do we know 12 and how do we know it's not 200? I mean, that's what the one adopted father was willing to admit to police when they launched this armed raid on their mansion. But part two goes into speculations on how far reaching it is because these doctor fathers took the boys on an excess of family trips and they stayed in airbnbs all across America. And so if it's alleged that they were raping their children in their own home, you know, it's implied that they could have been doing it elsewhere, taking them across state lines. And so they continued to document all of these trips, which could be considered evidence of it. But especially when they went to Chicago, they were touring all of the tourist attractions and pride gear, they're taking pictures of anything that's signaled, support for LGBTQ inclusion. So there's just a lot to this story that we're still trying to figure out as a case plays out. The media is silent on this, we know why. I believe I know why I'd love your thoughts on this is you are not allowed to even mention the fact that gay men might be raping young boys. You can't say that. I'm not saying all of them do. I'm not saying I don't know how widespread it is. I'm asking a question, but if there's an instance, you have to ignore it, you can't even commit the crime of noticing. How significant is the media blackout here, Mia? It is very significant. You would think like AJC and Atlanta for it being such a powerful, you know, on the ground outlet. They wrote about this story when it happened in August, but we haven't seen anything since
The Atlanta Pedophile Horror With Mia Cathell
"Joining us now is Mia caswell, investigative journalist with town hall, first Mia. I want to compliment you on your courage to write these pieces. I'm sure that you are receiving your fair amount of threats and ridicule for writing what is now a series of pieces. I will admit I did not have the stomach to finish your first piece. I just didn't. And it was just so grotesque and so terrible and so horrific. Walk our audience through your reporting and we'll go from there. Yeah, so part one of the four part investigative series that dropped Tuesday. And it just went into the horrifying facts of this criminal case that's playing out in Georgia and the adoptive fathers in the case. William and Zachary Zulu there. Gay married men, they're both now in maximum security lockup, pending trial. And so, yes, I've been following this case since it broke over the summer, so this is half a year ago. And made national headlines and everything. But ever since, there's just been a complete media blackout on the story. And so I've been diving into the court records, all these different court documents that just showing this suburban pedophile ring that's hidden in plain sight and virtually no outlet, local or national, has paid attention to it. So you call it a ring elaborate on that because it seems as if the story centered on these two sexual criminals. So what evidence do you have that it's a ring? Right, so in the 17 count indictment, it charges the adoptive fathers with soliciting at least two men in the Atlanta area suburbs, one hunter lawless and the other one, Louis viscosa Sanchez with engaging in prostitution with their 11 year old adopted son. You just turned 11 in December. And so that just seems like the tip of the iceberg because the one adoptive father said that he admitted to sending the child pornography to less than a dozen people. So there are still a handful of these child predators out there
Is There a Deep State, Crossfire Move to Remove Joe Biden?
"Think there is a move afoot to replace Joe Biden and clear the field for somebody else maybe a Gavin Newsom or somebody else in 2024? Is there a deep state crossfire move to remove Joe Biden? I don't know. I definitely heard a lot of people talking about it and I do wonder. But the way the Department of Justice is being so gentle with Joe Biden makes me think that they're not there yet. Maybe this is just the first shot that they're firing to let him know that they can control whether he gets to run again or not they've been protecting him with this gentle special counsel approach. They've been allowing him to leak get the information out and the friendliest possible way. So they might be just exploring options, but I don't think he's in true trouble because the Department of Justice is unfortunately so corrupt and so operating with so many different standards of justice here that he probably doesn't have much reason to worry yet.
A Conversation About Race With Greg Kelly
"Book is justice for all how the left is wrong about law enforcement and a couple of things came together. I'm going to make a little confession here, all right? And I was a totally different person, but in 2008, I voted for Barack Obama. I did think. And I was sold a bill of goods that he was somehow going to be a president who could ameliorate racial tensions in America. I bought that. I remember the Father's Day speech in June of 2008. And he said, rather boldly to a group of black churchgoers that we have a problem in the African American community and that's too many fathers are AWOL. Too many fathers are MIA. And this can lead to pardon me. No, he said that. You're right. He owned it for a while until it became inconvenient. Well, Jesse Jackson almost immediately threatened to castrate him. Caught on a hot mic on Fox News. And he only went there one time during his presidency. He decided to be a racially divisive president. He always was conflicted about his own race. It's actually in the 17 books about himself. Am I white? Am I black? The blacks don't trust me. They think I'm white, the whites think I'm exotic. He was having all of these thoughts. And he chose, okay? I'm going to go all in black victim. Not only am I a black, but I'm a black, and I, but for the grace of God, survive being black as a young person. An incredibly toxic message, but he needed it, especially in 2012. He actually took a pretty big hit with the African American community. They thought things would improve. They didn't under Barack Obama and he had to emotional them. Galvanized them to come back to him. And that's really helpful Black Lives Matter started. So a big part of this book, quite frankly, is to have a conversation about race that's honest and meaningful and real and helpful. Because the conversation about race happening right now is hideously dishonest and damaging.
Donald Trump Jr.: Vindication Following the Release of Twitter Files
"Well to show you just how dishonest Adam Schiff actually is I've been saying this for a while and I testified before him for like 9 or 11 hours or something like that It was so outrageous The ask was so asinine that even the people at Twitter even the leftist overlords at Twitter at the time were like yeah that's a little too far We can't do that Even they couldn't They threw me off for making sandals They've thrown plenty of conservatives for conspiracy theories that weren't conspiracy theories They were always logical The one I use most because it's so obvious was like the Wuhan lab leak theory right Of course it came from there And yet if you said that it came from there you were thrown off as no no no It came from the wet market 7 feet outside of the lab and definitely not from the lab that studies the exact virus in question It definitely didn't come from that And if you were a doctor you'd lose tenure for saying what was always the most plausible answer So it's been vindicating in the sense that it's like you know for years you're having to fight back and be like no I'm not actually crazy But it's not in the sense that they still got what they wanted Dan That's the problem You know Don you What they want two years later they admit that it was wrong but guess what They're in the driver's seat They get everything And legacy media has helped that as well because there's no Mia culpa there's no we're going to the way they do things If they do it's all fake they get what they want They don't even apologize They just don't talk about it anymore And we're supposed to pretend like we have actual actual fair media in our country It's insane All the things we'd love to believe about America All the things that you and I grew up believing about our country and how great it was Honestly a lot of it's a lie because of this sort of stuff

AJ Has One More Comment on the Woody-Mia Situation
"But let me comment on the woody verse Mia situation. One more time because I hinted in the last show I did that one of the children Moses was a kid who basically said, no, my sister Dillon's lying. And he took the opposite side. He didn't go with the flow. He did initially, but eventually he came around to being team woody because it was eating him up inside. He knew that his father was being taken down brick by brick and it wasn't fair. Now, Moses is a very private person. He's now a therapist and shit went to get his master's degree. Does great work, apparently, doesn't like public attention. You'll never hear from him or see him. But he came out at one point and talked about how the misleading attacks on his father, he didn't want to stay silent about any longer. And the reason why he won't is because he was present for everything that happened in that house before during and after this alleged event that Mia Farrell and Dylan farrow say took
What Have We Done to Our Military? With Kelley Vlahos
"I'm concerned that the use of the guard, the use of the reserves and even our active as well. We're setting ourselves up for about 5 to ten years from now. I don't think that the VA we're even close to where the bigger problems are going to come. They're about 5 to ten years away. How do we make that more prevalent to people when like I said, that quote a statistic we call it early? One half of 1% have served overseas in these last 20 years. I don't know how to make it more prevalent to people. I have been working on that for my entire career. And I've said this probably too many times, but one of the reasons why I've written and I feel so passionate about veterans issues is because like you, I grew up in the wake of the Vietnam War, and during the 80s, there was the first PTSD diagnoses, like the official diagnoses of PTSD was because of returning veterans from that war were coming home with all sorts of mental health issues. And there was there was no support system for them. And that was all built up because of them. But it was a major issue and I think the standing idea at that time was never again, or never forget. You know, the MIA POW flag never forget, yeah. That meant for the POWs in the MIAs were left behind, but I think broadened out. It meant we're not going to forget our veterans ever again, and what's really discussed at me in this particular war is that a they weren't prepared for the influx of veterans coming home with myriad injuries, whether it be brain traumatic brain injury or PTSD or different limbs, loss, amputations, all of these members, all of these service members who would have died on the field in Vietnam were kept alive because of our superior medical advancements, but that means tends a lifetime of costs of struggle for those particular individuals and their families and we weren't prepared for

I didn't have to ask them. I didn't have to. I mean they said we would like to do this. If that's okay with you But i didn't have to request it. And then it had like as i was telling you know different groups of friends i had like three other groups of friends offered to do the same thing i was just like. Y'all somebody else already did that.

My kids As we've been navigating all of this.

The city has an opportunity to preserve and restore 75% of the site and open up that green space to the public. Those who voted against the plan say there was a lack of transparency in the public engagement process. Among the opposition was Councilwoman Nederland Archibong. The public engagement process was handled in a way that left many nearby residents confused about what was being proposed. And how would impact their vision for this being a green space. And for nearby neighbors concerned about the police and fire activities being so near their homes. The projected $90 million facility will be funded in part by the Atlanta Police Foundation and the city's Fire Rescue Foundation. Along with corporate support, police morale and crime are big topics in the upcoming Atlanta mayor's race. That's because Atlanta, like many cities around the country, has seen a spike in violent crime this year. Social media, and some local news outlets can give the impression that crime is rampant in the city is on fire. It can provoke fear. Johnny Kauffman spoke to shooting victims who say that fear is often misplaced. Earlier this year, a fight broke out at a pool party near a Home depot in Atlanta's Lindbergh neighborhood. Walk into a poly was shopping for mulch when he heard the echo of a gunshot. You walked out to the stores parking lot where the sun was starting to set and dialed 911. Well, he was looking down at his watch. He saw a stray bullet strike his wrist. It felt like someone had, like wrapped me really.

"Yeah i i think it's one of those things where you know as therapists. We won help people. We wanna fix problems. We have shoulder pain. There's impingement your tight. Upper trap tightly vader.

I can't you know. So let's change things. You've you've gotten to where you are after twenty or forty years of lifestyle. Let's start making gradual changes. Let's turn the momentum a little bit. Let's change the direction so that now ten years from now twenty years from now you can do the things you want to do. So many my clients. They've worked their entire lives whether it be manual labor whether it be a desktop whatever. They've worked their entire lives. They've saved their money.

Is It Possible to Positively Incorporate Alcohol Into Intuitive Eating?
"Definitely possible to drink alcohol. Without feeling of negativity or guilt behind it and to incorporate it into an intuitive eating mindset there are of course some people who have substance use disorders and stop drinking as an act of self care an. I'd actually say bats intuitive drinking too because those folks know their own bodies and minds they know how alcohol affects their lives and their overall wellbeing and they make a choice to stop drinking not because there are some external rule against it but because the consequences of drinking are harmful to them. But taylor who asked the question. It sounds like you're not in a place where you're making choices about drinking from an intuitive perspective. And from your question. I can tell you have lots of negative beliefs about alcohol so i wanna help unpack those to help you get to that place where you can be more intuitive about it so first of all calling. Alcohol poisoning or toxin is really problematic. Because that's demonizing alcohol. That's labeling it as bad and alcohol is not actually toxic to most people in small amounts. And i say most people because again of course there are some folks for whom alcohol really is detrimental namely people with substance use disorders as i just mentioned but for those who do not have a substance use disorder who do not have a problem with alcohol. Which is the majority of people. Alcohol isn't a poisoner. Unless it's ingested in really large quantities and alcohol certainly isn't the only thing that has the potential to be harmful in large quantities. A lot of the things we eat drink are dose dependent for example even water which is held up as this magical thing by the wellness diet diet culture. In general even water can be toxic. If you drink too much there's a condition called hypo nutri mea which is low blood sodium. That happens when people drink too much water and it's extremely dangerous for your heart and for your life really it can be. It can be fatal now. Rest assured that you really are not at risk of hypo nutri mia. If you're honoring your body's natural thirst cues and you're not overdoing it with the water. But i've definitely seen hypoglycemia happened in people who have or thoracic beliefs about water being quote unquote purifying and that more is always better and they can really overdue it on the water and have had a couple of clients and up in the hospital with hypoglycemia because they had these orthodox beliefs about water. So that's not to scare anyone away from drinking water because water is obviously super important for our lives riot for our wellbeing. And it's great to drink that and other liquids whenever you feel thirsty. But i say that just to point out that alcohol is not alone in being dangerous in large quantities and that even water that supposedly magical thing can actually be harmful to us too. So it's a dose dependent thing and in smaller quantities. Alcohol can be perfectly fine for most
The Benefits of a Bilingual Brain
"Oblast. Suspend your poly. Say you wish ulama if you answered si we or quay chances are you belong to the world's bilingual and multilingual majority and besides an easier time traveling or watching movies without subtitles. Knowing two or more languages means that your brain may actually look and work differently than those of your monolingual friends. So what does it really mean. to noah. language language ability is typically measured in two active parts speaking and writing and to passive parts listening and reading while he balanced bilingual has near equal abilities across the board in two languages. Most bilingual's around the world know and use their languages in varying proportions and depending on their situation and how they acquired each language they can be classified into three general types for example. Let's take gabriella whose family emigrates to the us from peru when she's two years old as a compound bilingual gabriella develops to linguistic code simultaneously with a single set of concepts learning both english and spanish as she begins to process the world around her. Her teenage brother on the other hand might be coordinate. Bilingual working with two sets of concepts learning english and school while continuing to speak spanish at home and with friends finally gabrielle is. Parents are likely to be subordinate. Bilingual's who learn a secondary language by filtering it through their primary language because all types of bilingual people can become fully proficient in a language regardless of accent or pronunciation. The difference may not be apparent to a casual observer but recent advances in brain imaging technology have given neuro linguists at glimpse into how specific aspects of language learning affect the bilingual brain. It's well known that the brains left hemisphere is more dominant and analytical and logical processes while the right hemisphere is more active in emotional and social ones though this is a matter of degree not an absolute split the fact that language involves both types of functions while lateral ization develops gradually with age has led to the critical period hypothesis. According to this theory children learn languages more easily because the plasticity of their developing brains. Let's them use both hemispheres in language acquisition while in most adults languages latter allies to one hemisphere usually the left. If this is true learning a language in childhood may give you a more holistic grasp of its social and emotional

Why Your Skin Is Freaking Out Right Now
"I'm not the only one and signed that. We've all described as lockdown skin. So i've asked arundhati mama mia senior beatty rutta and fellow ubt co host to sit down with me and explain w t.f is going on without pesky skin. Hello and welcome ms erin. Hello how are you. Thank you so much for joining me today to talk about how ugly. I'm getting staffer now. Am i getting uglier. What the hell is going on with my face right now. Please listen kelly. I feel you so hard right now. My skin is an absolute been files like. It looks like a man. I keep being like. I'm giving you all this attention now. Why are you so mad. Why do you hate me. Why are you mad at me. That's like i just don't want midday mosques and ten thousand products on my face right now. So you're not going crazy. Locked and skin is very much a real thing. So i've been speaking to a lot of experts speaking yesterday about this because everyone's talking about it and there's a whole number of different reasons. Why asking is freaking out during lockdown right now so if your skin is a mess right now you're definitely not alone. Okay good explain to me what they said. Because it's not even one particular thing. When i look at it it just looks. Yuck hollywood you describe it really. So what did they say. What are the experts saying so firstly. There's like this whole big increase level of stress going on right now. So that obviously plays a lot of havoc with all aspects of asking especially acne. And those kind of like inflammatory conditions. Like eczema and psoriasis. Secondly also all now spending more time indoors and we've all got the haiti going. We've got air con and that obviously causes dryness of the skin mixed with the fact that it's also winter so dryness can lead to increased breakouts eczema and even that kind of periodical matatus which is just around the mouth. So next is the fact that we're online using zoom and i don't know about you but i constantly tend to just touch my face like the whole time so when i see myself on camera i'm always kind of just like picking and touching my skin which obviously makes breakouts and all these kind of skin problems a whole lot worth.
Angelina Jolie's Is Lying Through Her Teeth
"But let's take a look at how miserable Angelina is these days and what has become the longest divorce of our lives. Lately, she filed papers that have to do with their French wine vineyard chateau Mia la. Miraval. Apparently, she wants to be rid of her ownership in the castle and the vineyard, the vineyard where they make their own rose wine, and their own extra virgin olive oil. I thought the olive oil endeavor was a joke because the words extroversion should not be anywhere near Angelina Jolie. They shouldn't be associated with her extra slutty olive oil, maybe. The backstory is, back in 2008, Brad nanji, they saw it in three year lease on chantel miraval. They bought it three years later for $67 million. Three years after that, they get married. Now, these days, Brad is way more into it than she is. So it makes sense that she wants out of the business. And she said in court papers that she's tried to sell Brad, her part of the business for years, but you know what? They can't come to an agreement on the price. Well, I think we would have figured that. What can they agree on? And since she couldn't make a deal with Brad, she found some third party person who has agreed to buy her out. The problem is that an automatic temporary restraining order was put on the transfer of assets when they filed for divorce. So, Angie wants the court to lift the restraining order so she can complete the deal with this new buyer. And she just filed documents that asked the judge to lift the order on the transfer of their assets, which was put in place automatically when their divorce paperwork got on the way. And the answer she's interested in the loading is the French winery company. And it's kind of a standard thing courts do in cases like these. But according to her lawyers, they've tried to work this out with Brad, they want to avoid a formal hearing, but Brad's side hasn't gotten back to them. And Angie's afraid that if she doesn't complete this deal soon, the new buyer's gonna back out. And she claims in court papers that the chateau miraval was solely hers to begin with because she bought it before they got married. Bullshit. She's actually been trying to unload her part of the vineyard for a while. Listen to me right now. Angelina is lying through her teeth. She was never the sole owner of miraval or the winery, her people are harassing anybody who dares to counter this spin. It's so insane, it's not even
"mia" Discussed on Look Behind The Look

"mia" Discussed on The Entrepreneur's MBA with Adam Kipnes
"Does that help you. In seeing like how i look at because what i learned Adam from doing a bill to multi million dollar companies in the first company where i learned about that was. It's not how much you make. It's how much you get to keep right. So yeah so i was like so i'm all about. I really think of wealth. Now as i'm my own bank so i think of wealth in terms of and i really mean that literally like my own bank so i think of wealth as How do i take money. That has no meaning. I'm not attached to money like money doesn't define me at all at all. But how do i take something that has no meaning like no no attachment to it whatsoever. and i have no resistance to it. But how do i take that in. Allow it to really work for me. Twenty four seven. What are the ways that. I'm using that Money to you know. It never calls in sick. It doesn't take days off right right. How do i think like a bank. Where i'm you know lending money in order in order to get higher returns so i'm always making money on my money. And then how do. I think that way in terms of everything i do in my business. I'm always looking at it from the perspective of how can we create a self liquidating offer. Like how do we get paid to get paid. Sent me covered twenty seven episodes in two and a half minutes for always bring a few things together here and i love it so the self liquidating offer for those of you. Don't know what that means Reach out to be rejected me ashes. Yeah hewitt dot com is her website mia document on instagram at me hewitt pretty much everywhere else. Instagram's got dot between the two. Everything else is straight her name And one of the things that i learned is spend the five dollars and ninety cents one. Because it'll change your life just by reading the book but also when.
"mia" Discussed on Gamepinions
"My favorite game time and obviously i'm excited for the second game to come out but at the same time looking at those games that we looked at our last episode and looking at how i guess with the the first the wild how many times that gave got the lead. I almost think it's better that they just showed us that trailer. Haven't seen anything since. And i kinda just trust them to know when the right time to show this thing off is. I just think that it's going to end up being a better product in the end. They end up doing that. We're not really kinda getting strung along in a sense that you know we're seeing fake flooded or something like that not that intendo typically does that intent is usually pretty honest with what they're they're showing off excluding link project hammer never came out But yeah i mean so yeah i was just. I was thinking a lot about that. And i just think that this is probably just a better a better way to go about yet. Nintendo kinda gets a pass to just because everything that they put out generally. He's pretty polished again. There's always exceptions but for the most part nintendo can kind of do what they want they were like if i recall i to break away from like a three and kind of have their own stage right. Was that were the first to do that. You you remember like certainly companies you know like a rock star kind of iffy about three but in terms of like breaking away and having like digital events yet i mean they were kind of on the forefront of that. Yeah so they kind of have that nintendo ego but like in a good way to where they're going to do what they want and as long as they keep putting out good games everybody's kind of on board with that and they get too mad. I mean after this conference there seemed to be a bit of that on the internet. Which i guess we'll get into but Yeah i get a pass a lot of the time. I think that the biggest thing for me is that when i first saw breath while to trailer extremely excited but to there was a not gonna lie. There was part of me that saw similarities. I saw the same map. And you know it's probably going to be worked. It's not going to be identical But you're seeing all these similarities and you know the biggest fear is that it's going to turn into something that doesn't feel fresh and the fact that this game didn't come out in two thousand twenty like i thought it would and the fact that they still haven't showed anything yet really in it's already you know in twenty twenty one. It kind of gives me a little bit of confidence that after breath the original. I should have confidence in them. Because that game was awesome. But it just gives me a little extra confidence that this is gonna feel fresh when it comes out if that makes sense does we haven't had one in a while. There's really nothing else. like that. Like that arch dial chose and the direction they went with that was pretty unique and that was a launch title. So i mean again. We haven't had anything. We haven't really had too much. Dlc for that so you kind of have tenders does a pretty good job. Get you feeding you. They make you wait in this case. Winds up being a good thing because it's going to be so much sweeter when we finally does come out whatever that may be. Oh yeah yeah. So i mean i'm i'm excited. Still you know..
