He wouldn't say anything other than that Danny needed to drive to his dad's house in bradberry ASEP Danny got in his car and started driving you turn on the radio. There's a voice announcing some sort of celebrity murder, typical talk radio fodder but then Danny heard the word bradberry and his blood went cold as he pulled up to his dad's house at fifty three woodland drive. He saw that the driveway was blocked off with police tape news helicopters circled overhead Danny got out of his car and looked up the hill towards the house. His father's body surrounded by cops was lying prone on the concrete bloody and still. As, more family and friends learned of Mickey Intruders Murder One name was on everyone's lips.

But I feel like the employees Kinda copped out a little bit whereas like, Hey, you should just go your dad's house like why what's wrong? I think maybe Disco Check Out Your Dad tells what's what's The anticipation of hearing bad news or the anticipation of senior DAD's dead body I. Think like paired with the radio and then pulling up in seeing police all around like having a piece of together to me. Seems, pretty rough I think that's I agree like the anticipation is much worse I I need to know like goes wrong. Just tell me I don't. I don't care like. Then you know and you can start dealing with versus like well is I mean it looks like it is but like hopefully, it's not like you still have that hopefully it's not hopefully it's not hopefully it's not and then you kind of have to like live the news, a number of times that way and also like if you don't know what's going on like you could think that your parents are still alive and so you're right. Maybe you're rushing and speeding on the highway, which is also like not great as well. Like if you know that there's like nothing you can do you're not gonNA put yourself in danger getting there. Yet. I can see how an employee would be like. I can't be the one to tell him but I. Yeah. I mean I'm sure that's what it was like. I don't know if it's my place but. It's sort of is if you're the one calling him, I would I would rather I would like preface of like. You need to go to your parents house like. There's been a murder is something. Yeah, how would you even say that like? Are they just say you can go like you're just like, Hey, your mom and dad had been murdered not good news.

Data Mickey Thompson basically invented stadium trucks which are one of the. It's one of the coolest forms of racing to watch. Yeah I love. It's like look like just like trucks just going off ramps. Are they like, do they kind of like? They kind of do. The wants today there. They mostly do on or street courses. Where they have the ramps and stuff like that. I mean you'll see him if you go to the Long Beach Grand Prix they're racing on the same course with ramp setup but guys. 'em Tagged Stadium tour was like they would go to places like the l a coliseum or these other big stadiums setup courses that are almost like dirt dirt bike or supercross courses rather, which will also mentioned later in the episode and race trucks inside of a professionals pro sports stadium. So pretty amazing although Mickey already had a successful performance parts company, he loved throwing himself into projects tinkering with. Other. Projects like hydro barriers which are now ubiquitous traffic barriers that can be transported and filled with water to be used on race tracks and highways. Hey, you know I'm thinking about putting water in a barrel. What do you think about that? It'll never work. I've been tinkering. Barrels a lot of water. Yeah. Never Catch people don't want water in their barrels they want barrels for the cement. ooh. However Mickey's true passion as he entered, his golden era was still am tag, which only had a small staff apart from Mickey and Trudy by Nineteen eighty-four, both nicky and his wife were experiencing health issues.

Pixel 5, new Chromecast and Nest Audio: Breaking down the Google event
"Google unveiled a trio of new products at its event yesterday in Chrome cast the Nest Audio Smart Speaker, and the Pixel five and Pixel four five smartphones. What do we think about them? I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with me is Google beat reporter rich never welcome rich anything's happening. So let's start off with the headliner of the bunch that's Pixel five. What did Google veil in? How is this flagship phone your different from years past? So this is the pixel five. It's their premium phone for the year it's different because it's let's thing. It's it's not that different. It's actually kind of scaled back. From last year. So it's it's different. It's new, but it's missing a few things that the pixel four had a support add visual recognition and it had. Radar gesture controls kinda skilled at Baxter. This year the big thing is that it's cheaper it's hundred dollars cheaper than than was last year it's seven hundred dollars. Last year's was eight hundred dollars. So that's that's the main the main difference. Yeah I was watching the presentation, the the Pixel five feel little ho-humday me. There were no cruising features and really the the one addition to the the camera which has always been a strong suit was wide lens and and that's something you know apple had last year. I get one hundred dollars cheaper but you know this is supposed to be the premium device that supposed to setting example for what you know the best of an android experience can be. What did you think of the fact that they scaled down what what Google say about that I mean are you new software tricks like there's a there's a new thing called hold for me which she'll like if you're on, you're on the phone with the business and put on hold it'll prompt you to to get back on the phone to MT music and there's like nightside site. Married does those are some some new tricks but mostly yet it did feel scaled back google. Answered that question with reporters after the show. the they basically said that they wanted to be more more affordable and you know these things like the radar chip. those are expensive in terms of rnd in terms of components, and they wanted to make successful especially in pandemic although they could never have predicted the same but they said that they they saw the economy turning they wanted to go where the consumers we're going to be this year. Yeah. It's interesting that the really the biggest innovation quote unquote is the fact that it's one hundred dollars cheaper. And you know we've we've hit other companies over the head about putting out products that are overly expensive at this time. So I do give Google credit for that It seems a lot like they're taking some inspiration from there are lower in line to a line of Pixel phones and they launched a new one, the Pixel for a five G. Talk of that. Yeah. That one is actually really interesting. I think. Google has been pretty straightforward about its its struggle in the premium market. Their executives had been. said. Years ago that this is this is really hard for them. They've shied actually in the mid tier market, the three as sold really. Well, they stay already said that the forays selling well, the foreign with five G. will be really interesting because it's a five G. phone that is five hundred dollars and a really good value for that kind of next collectively and cheaper than a lot of the five G. phones I've seen already being introduced. Yeah and just tweet, Clinton the difference, the Pixel five starts at how much pixel five as seven hundred dollars the four, eight, five G. is five hundred dollars and the pixel foray without by using entered fifty dollars. Got It. So those you know those those phones are significantly less expensive. In our colleague short actually makes the argument in a story today that the forty five G. might actually be the better bet since does have the same camera Tek as the five, right? Yeah. Yeah. I'm Dr I think that really. Interesting Product Watch, and see how it how it tells. Yeah. It's interesting to note that the phone is not available for preorder. Yet I, think there's a wait list. ECHO comes out a little bit later than the Pixel five but I imagine that a lot of folks who'd be interested in that phone.

Meanwhile.

E I was part of the battle of the tack of Dorato, which is what the they kind of a- depict in the In the ride and his affiliation. Pigs. And that did me in.

He's not misogynistic that we know of. skelly where he's the he's the woke bro there because he's not eating the pig so he could be Vegan for all. We know that's true. Yeah. That's a fun choice that that attraction is still in my top two I. think it's after Haunted Mansion Pirates is one of my favorites and the atmosphere and the the cartoonish. Faces of those pirates. Many of them have the same like mold. You know there's there's like the face there's the lantern guy in. Haunted Mansion, that's his his face is on some of the pirates at arts, the Caribbean to his pieces the same fees is the Guy who's like playing the Banjo at. Lafitte sliding like when you're.

Then we built like a little haunted house out of like a mega blocks and had his characters go in there. But Emily and I were just kind of giving each other these looks and just kind of talking on the side being like I imagine what is going to be like this kid for the first time to see the haunted mansion and to see pirates of the Caribbean as just this experience if he is going, you know I personally ridden both rides fifty times.

"Yesh. Show how important the legend is and then maintenance of the legend and keeping up that legend is transcends the individual. In a big way. That's that's fascinating. That's fun. That's a fun pick. A Wesley is so good hearted to and it does. Lend a greater dimension to the concept of piracy as. An occupation that can be honorable or dishonorable that is. Does, not necessarily A. like Robin Hood the person is robbing, but it's too to and that's not always entirely evil. So I. Don't know if that's how dread. Pirate Roberts. Ever, really established I mean the element of the old dread, pirate? Roberts. You would assume having killed many people he took on on his on his ship. From the good job Wesley are likely kill you in the morning. Little running bit. But. Yeah I mean like I said, I think there is a In pop culture pirates can either be fearful or they can be seen as joyous and humorous. Roberts kind of embraces all of that I think yeah. Oh. It's fun choice. All right. What are you got there winfield? Well I just I mean just one last note on that I like the idea that I like the idea that like a potential job you could have, what are you going to be a plumber I don't know. I'm a farmer. K, IRA. That was just the thing that people I guess had an idea. I like that as a occupation which occupation pirate. Okay. My first choice is a historical pirate a real pirate existed probably the most famous of all pirates or at least most iconic and that's blackbeard. The pirate It's real name not necessarily Edward teach older. That's what he called himself as possible. It was Edward Drummond He was a pirate that kind of existed in the early eighteenth century of. The Caribbean, the Caribbean or the East Coast of North America and wh what's fascinating about him is that he kind of Like the dread pirate Roberts had a legendary status and image thing that kind of when you think of the classic kind of you know early eighteenth century late seventeenth century. Pirate. You think of him the big long black beard with a big hat and he had. A. Six. Guns. A like on his cheques and a cutlass and daggers and know all the very traditional pirated things he had. The image of the pirate that we think of is the image of blackbeard. And what I found really fascinating reading about him was that he was basically a pirate for one year. In like November and November seventeen seventeen He hijacked a like a slave ship and renamed the Queen's. And by November of eighteen seventeen, eighteen, he was dead. So one year he he went out and just pirated like a maniac for a year you know. Stealing and What's I think club were they They leave people on an island maroon him he marooned like some of his. His pirate. A shipmates he. Stole boats and giant. In other. sloops others like he did the very classic pirating and he had this image of being vicious and it's Done with a year at some point, he'd even kind of retired within that year. He likes sold all of his like below in all of the things that he had stolen all of his booty and kind of made a deal with the local governor and then After. A couple of weeks a couple of months I can't do this. I can't do style I can't just hang out. It's like it's like the ball player that like retires and spend three months with his family, and this is back backout back back back in triple A. being like, yeah I'm not getting paid very much but this is the life for me Asana. is on land. PIRATES A. The Real Navy was The officers who offer some ships in the Royal Navy? were. Instructed to maintain a policy that if they did find. Other vessels that weren't supposed to be in the territory that they're in or other pirate vessels, they were allowed to plunder those ships. So they had a policy of search and seizure of other vessels.

Ecology Lessons from Mt. Auburn Cemetery
"Tell us about when Mount Auburn sort of formalized the idea of emphasizing places in urban wildlife refuge and set specific sustainability goals like what's that? When did that happen? Well. I would I would say even before I was here, there was certainly a focus on a at some degree of sustainability sustainable practices, but it wasn't. It really started ramping up and you know after I got here because of my own interests, many of the other staff at the time as well and we really felt it was time to do more focus spend more time focusing on and really do the right thing and. It gradually became more formalized Because I'm sorry term planning processes and and when are several years ago we did a strategic plan and one of the top level and strategic initiatives of the plan was to be a model of environmental stewardship. So it really that's when it really became Kinda Corp Institution wide. Horticulture Department. Because of in the. Area I. Mean you're this piece of ecological uniqueness I think I read and one description right? I mean it's it's an unusual place to have one hundred and seventy five acres. In the conditioner. Really. It's it's such an important more and more important these days because we're in surrounded by an urban environment and. Green Open greenspace. That's good for my life and people is that much more important than it used to be and recognized as being important so it's Yeah. We're really in a kind of a unique spot. So. Now as with Central Park in New York City and other such spaces like the birds for instance, and you have a lot of birds they are especially during migration periods at Mount Auburn. Birds knew all along. This was a great ecologically important spot. So tell us a little bit about the wildlife and who calls home and so forth. The I? Say forever third says. Stop Vice About Auburn but. On on the fly over the path of migrating birds, you know come and kind of fun you following the coastline. from Central America and up on up north. So we're right in that in that flyway in in recent years more, the more urbanization has happened the more. Here. We are at the birds fly over and all they say is one hundred, seventy, five acres of five thousand trees in the tree tops is fine over. So it really is an obvious place for them to. Stop and take arrest them get replenished with. Food on their way north we happen to be in you know in in an area zone that birds are migrating through anyway, and of course, there's also a lot of resident birds as well that. Take Up. Space, here. And I imagine that you have bird clubs and stuff worth that left to be there and looking at birds. Yes absolutely that's where we are quite popular destination for many. Many very clubs and Amasau of on society and other. Organizations that that that organized groups to bring here and then just as people. Flock here from as individuals especially in May and peak migrating season, but also throughout the year. So it's not just birds I know for instance, when you did your woodland, you did you've done a number of as part of the sort of overall Mandate of of greater stability and and being more of a wildlife refuge in in recent years that's intensified you've done a number of projects you restored with didn't chew I mean or your receive in restoring the woodland. Tell us a little bit of some of the sort of steps and what did you do? Did you kind of monitor populations and figure out who is there and what you needed to do to what's thought process that when you when you begin an and again, this is a historic place and a place that a lot of people have. attachment to. You know it's an emotional place. It's a treasured place so you can't just change everything right? You have limitation. Right. Glad. You mentioned that we still are very much a an active ongoing cemetery.

Louis the the duck you know and everybody's got a nickname and they're all each one more colorful than the one before and them usually missing part of an ear apart minnows and stuff like that. Batman didn't have to. Dick Tracy didn't even have to exaggerate a too much for with mumbles mush based. Top and. As. I. Do. Like to his his Detroit came out there was just like it was so pathetic. It was just like it was Julie's Bob, the goon, and like what you can you imagine if that was the one that you got for Christmas. I WanNa Batman Toy, and somehow your mom just has. The. Dollar. Bennett target back and it's just like I got. Bob The goon unwanted. Batman. With retractable utility belt and I got. Out How am I gonNA pretend with this thing. Is Removable Hat or whatever. Some of those prince album were kind of so Terek. You know. So I'm surprised. He didn't do goon dance or you know. The Bob I'm like I just imagine. Can you imagine the Trevor? Treasure trove of like unused besides that Prince had. But seriously the Bob. Song. That's incredible Manfreddy. All right. You you mentioned Jeff You. Mentioned all of the various New York. Mafia. GOUMAS, and kinsman over the years. In Real, life, I'm picking one from the cinema and the Be, book. I am going. Luca Brasi. Father? Yeah. He's only in the movie for a little while. Make. Big. presence. personally ending the olive oil war with his reign of terror. And showing up to Connie corleones wedding, and basically out staging ever upstaging everybody by giving US giant wads of cash to hers as a wedding present and getting his head. Jared it off. Yeah. So kind of a kind of a mixed bad bag for my Luca. But. I think that he's. Look he's somebody who is so violent that even vito corleone is a little intimidated by him. Yeah. Not just a little bit. He's be recognized as that. He's got a psychopath for him at the same time. It's the type of industry. We're having a psychopath working for you can actually pay dividends. You've got to have one on the payroll. Yeah, exactly. So I that's that's why choosing Luca Brasi I, think that he is the ultimate. Ultimate intimidation factor, which was he was he the one that the godfather sent in to. Like pretend like he was switching over. Yes. Okay. There's there was the big. That was the big error in. Don corleones master plan was like don't send the biggest dumbest guy to go act in pretend. It's like. I've seen it. You need the Guy, this settled the settled twitchy guy, not the the big done galut. You can barely kill with a piano higher. -actly, there was a tactical misfire on on Don corleones part. No doubt about it. Now, he's getting older. He was slipping. So yeah, exactly. And if you know the backstory of him in the novel is actually. Far Far worse than what they show in the movie. In the novel he winds up. Eating, a a prostitute. Kills immediately after he gives birth forces the midwife to throw the baby in the furnace. Oh Jeez. So. They actually made Luca Brasi allot more likable character in the movie. You know as likable as a as a murderous psychopath, gangster could possibly be. Than they did even in the book. Yeah. I. Think when you when you don't show him actually killing anyone onscreen, it's hard to be like, okay. How dangerous was this guy in? With within the context of the day can explain how bad he was, but if you don't see him You know. Putting a baby in a furnace And the guy who played winning Montana was a former Corley. Former Colombo family enforcer Oh really. Yeah. He brought some Definitely brought some realism to the part. Yeah. That's There is a little bit of a story about him. Interacting with the mob while on. The payroll of the film. So that's pretty interesting. I. Imagine there was a lot of. I. Know there was a lot of interaction with the studio and with. Coppola. The mob didn't want to be portrayed. They didn't with the word. Mafia. In it, they didn't want all that stuff in it. So wow, that's crazy. That's crazy. Yeah. So he was also I know as. I'm just reading the wikipedia like everybody else are he was a wrestler beforehand big arrest of. Quick. During, broke his leg. Buried career. Let's yeah yeah. All right. That's a good good choice. I think he was one of the. Two, but like forget what happened. A winfield. My second choice I got a three for one.

Some dumb fish theme thing. The Penguin was doing her. The joker had his team of goons, but the one that really stood out was Bob, the goon from the nineteen nine movie. Batman Oh. Yeah. Larry Darrell Darrell who? Was it. Was I can't remember his name will look at. But it's this guy that he's like you know always forever. The bit, player. As a henchman, you're always a bit player when I liked about Bob you know the character, of Jack Napier who becomes Batman or? The joker and. You don't goes on to have his joker crimes be spree. Is that Bob is with him the entire way he's with him when he just kind of like. Gangster working for Jack Balances Mega gangster character, he has his. From the get go. And? He turns into like his number, one goon and the number. One thing of goon must do ultimately is just whatever whatever the boss wants and he does it all from take pictures and. You. Know. I'm convinced that Bob is the one that setup. All of two jokers. Quick Turnaround. Henchmen gear because like he gets turned into the joker unlike midnight. On a Friday and that Sunday, all of his guys are decked out in. Great. graphically designed joker costumes and purple everything this and that I think Bob is the one that really kind of he's I'm sure he's like a graphic designer as well as a goon. I'm sure he's a guy that knows all the contacts to get like jackets made and all of the merge. and. Then he does the thing that all henchman half to do you want read, it was not roses. Well, there's a difference. Yeah, he's. He's. He's the thing that he does the thing that all henchman must do for their boss. You know in the end of the day, get killed form. And does it the jokers? The one that kills him he? In the face, you just kills him right out because the jokers crazy. But he's just this guy that was there from you know through hard times and good times and crazy times imagine just having to be the henchmen to a crazy person who doesn't who says things that don't make sense.

His face was disfigured but the Heath Ledger version in the dark knight is so visceral and so grotesque and it's grotesque both when he's wearing like kinda the white pancake makeup but then also like in the scenes where he's not wearing any makeup. Has the you know the scar and I guess they call a Glasgow Smile. And it's so just it's so informs the character as this twitchy disturbed individual that you don't kind of know his origin and it works perfect for the joker character. I think that's I haven't seen the The Joaquin Phoenix Joker version. But like I hate the idea of knowing the origin of the joker and I think that his portrayal of this character in the mystery the comes from the makeup of how he constantly changing. And maybe that's the writing and just to actress portrayal but it's constantly changing. What you know of the character that's informed by the makeup and him saying like do WanNa know how I got the scars and I think that's so interesting and they never really explained it and it shouldn't be explained because he's mysterious chaotic character. And I just I read something where I guess he'd put on the makeup would bother him so much that you kind of have to. He would lick his lips and look at it and that developed into a character trait that he brought to it too. I just to get a real quick shot out to like Cesar Romero just putting white makeup over as the mustache and not giving a fuck to feels like something that the joker Redo to but But I just like it was so over the top but kind of believable and grotesque and religious everything came together in compare in that movie and then you also compare it to the digital work that was done with the with the to face character and it was like. Oh here's his character even more grotesque and he's to like disfigure people eventually working together. I don't know I just thought to the performance aspect and the makeup that drove it on his many different phases was very unique for a character that everyone has known as the Jack. Nicholson version or like a cartoon comic book version. Or even the can't be sixties version. That seems like an observation that The Makeup is part of the character but the character has a story and that Makeup gave him so much backstory that he could bring into the into the plot to move things forward. Then I have a question for you. A Michael brought up the to character in the dark knight a films and I know there to be many very talented Working in the digital realm but are times displacing. Artists are working in the practical physical effects. Realm do you have a observation to make about what one loses when they go to all digital? Is there something that you can shine a light on here? Yeah I mean I think. A lot of the most successful digital artists are guys who used to be practical artists. There's a lot of guys who used to do make effects or practical effects who You know smartly went into doing digital effects and I think that those tend to be the ones who are the best at it because they have a real world grounding in how you actually do things in the real world so they can take that artistry over to the computer whereas if you exclusively learn within a computer than I think maybe loses little something of life so you know. There's guys like Aaron sins and Eddie Yang who were prolific make effects artists. You know through the eighties in the nineties who went on to be start. Digital companies now produce some of the best digital work in a lot of makeup effect chefs are now having digital makeup departments in house. But on that one of the people who's going to sit here and say that you know one is better than the other. I think that make up works best. When you're using all the available technologies to complement one another so there are just some things we cannot do in the real world and there are some things that just are not going to look right in the digital world so if you can use those two things together. I think that's where you get the best effects. Maybe you have Zombie. That has a hole in their face or a part of their torso. Missing was no reason why that can't be a makeup with an area of their face or torso that's painted green or blue. That's digitally removed or some type of hybrid But I don't think that.

The dragon starting nineteen seventy-eight. There would be different numbers on the board There'd be different numbers on the board behind the numbers. They were happy computer screen. So if you pick to go to whatever is behind the screen and normally it was cash or os or XS of the word win. There'd be like the Grand Prize but there is one one guy lurking out there and that was the tactile dragon if you chose it. It did a whole to animations where it went from being filling up some of the screen and looking very scary angry to filling up all of the screen and looking exactly the same because apparently this was like the first use of a computer animation in game shows was the tic-tac-toe Dragon. Well and I remember it would make roar. Sound are and I was probably four or five when I first saw the show and Bacon. Sandwiches mudpit and head for Andy and I just remember being as one of my first memories is seeing the tic-tac-toe Dragon and being an ad running out of the room screaming crying using so much.

All my dragons are like kind of evil or bad or invaders so I thought of a foul core from the never ending story. Oh cool who is A Luck Dragon. It's kind of more in line with the More Chinese style dragon. That is kind of has a serpent serpentine sort of body I don't think it really has wings can just kind of fly by dragon power and boys by magic basically and He's just this incredibly as the name. says Lucky Dragon. That is very helpful to The main characters in the in the the novel ended movies A tray you and bastion Flies around gets them from place to place in the book. I guess he's obviously a bit more fleshed out and The image of him is probably more in line with what a Chinese or Asian dragon would be Kind of has more of a lion's head And in the in the movie The nineteen eighty four. Three four five came out. He kind of looks like a big grandma's dog he still has the same scales and claws. And there's something so strange and odd about his look that. I thought God. He's just so intriguing as a dragon. But it's kind of the same you know it's like when you select all the different species of dinosaurs to get back to China source. You know a T. Rex looks so vastly different from a trait ceratops end so vastly different from. I don't know like the platypus or whatever. But they're all part of the same. You recognize them as dinosaurs and I think that just like the Chinese serpent version of dragon is so different from kind of like the European Medieval dragon sort of creature and so different from the A video game seventies behind scoreboard whammy creature That I don't know I just thought that he it was. It was interesting to have like A. I thought a good dragon. I don't know you don't see them. Always they're always terrifying but when when is a good guy? I thought that was pretty our the ones I can think of would-be toothless from the how to train your dragon series. I haven't seen those. Are they are? They're great good. Like I remember going to see the first one the drive in and it was sorta like. Yeah okay. It's dreamworks so I'm I'm always been hit miss on their staff and it was fantastic and the second one would really get. I haven't seen the third one yet so I can't comment on it I really liked I. Two and basically Does this turn at the start of the first meeting in the first movie too much. But yeah no Jesus is another another good dragon. But you're right there. Aren't that many of them. They're kind of you know. I think they're either seen as sort of these lovable oaths half the time or near likely scary frightening. Things will to Chris. I will say that Leslie Gallagher chose foul core. There are a lot of foul core loyalists. Who were kind of when they chose him? They're like Duh. Foul core of course and star. Newman chose Falco core so a lot of foul core supporters. Out there as well as toothless to a whole lot of people Chose THAT CHARACTER JEFF.

"Blow things up and get to be these huge nasty fights with Godzilla and destroyed towns in Japan. And he's you know a space monster so he's destroyed other planets before essentially he just comes in and just he just is just a a a force and I do like that Godzilla is the strange protector of Earth. Even though he is also just kind of like this powerful force and he's always trying to repel Be IT Rodin or Mothra but in this case king get her and just to have that title is pretty is pretty awesome. It's like King Jerry. Lawler or something like her. What what What Court of law or or uh who exactly gained him to be king. But it's it seems to be official. Yeah one of my favorite appearances of gator was in a big adventure. When they're they're writing Pee Wee gets his bicycle back and he's kind of riding his bike being chased by security guards. Through like the Warner Brothers backlot. And somehow they're filming like a Godzilla movie on one of the stages and Godzillas smashing through like miniature tanks and their kin. Get her a like on wires and manage suit sort of level stuff just kind of rides through in this thing swinging around haphazardly. But he's just a great dragon a you know he's kind of has that Hydra nature with the three heads. I don't know if if if you cut off if it would grow back in that same sort of style or if that was another one of Godzillas enemies that would happen to but I WOULD. I would think that you know kind of like the old Greek myths. They probably borrowed a lot from there. Yeah they I think mainly Godzilla. Just punted him. Whatever that's basically what happened now. I Love I love this pick. I love the fact that he is one of the few monsters in this kind of universe that almost never teams up with Godzilla at some point. Does it become like Gods Ella and Mothra buddies or anything like that Why are we fighting? We could none of this. I think there's like Whoa. I think there might be one month. Remove where he comes to help him out but that might be like one of the ones where basically they just grew out. Any sort of backstory. At that point would you would you consider Godzilla a dragon or is he more of a dinosaur? I think you have to have wings to be able to be considered a dragon Wings in flight are at bare minimum. I would say you don't necessarily have to breathe fire although it helps. What about that thing? When Godzilla like stands on his tail and like zips across the land like an ass all right does Mecca King Gadara support. The stew is it. Do you can include him in.

There was rumors he was meant to represent a threat posed by China which had at the time of the Caribbean just developed nuclear weapons but the director denied it and said just dragging the colder I I as a young person. I think Gadara. I don't know why I bought Gammarra but did not by get her like Gambro. Just a Frisbee through around the head of rockets on four sides of it but while And then for some reason. I don't know I think it was his three wobbly heads that were clearly kind of marketed from above that he never really never really bought. Bought it for me.

It was like you're walking around. You're like our Lincoln logs really supposed to be that much for that. No residue from Wood chipper and the Painting Bread Nicole Felix walking around looking. You just toys after I'll after I love toys and him picking up literally Lincoln Log and saying I want this. Sometimes I wonder what next time can I have this wild like?

There's a huge Barbie. Yeah portion was just be like okay. I can avoid that right. Asking the teenage mutant. Ninja turtles is going to be great right Quick fact but the jingles credible and quick the slogan that. I don't WanNa grow up on Toys R. Us Kid was partially written by James.

Would you got Winfield My next choice is a regional. One that you kind of mentioned it's the CAL Worthington. Oh yeah also known as Pussy Cow. That's a Ding Ding Ding. Because people definitely mentioned cal on here so For Howard my chiropractor go see cow. We'll be burned into my brain forever. If you want a car truck go see cal for you. Want to save a buck. Go see cow. If you need a better car over and over and over go see cal go see. Cal goes account and as a kid everyone pussy cat pussy cal cal. Worthington was a local car. Dealer this guy in a big cowboy hat that started off every commercial wrestling with some sort of exotic animals he was like the Marlin Perkins local. Tv Yeah Yeah and it would always say it's cow Worthington and his dog spot. In for like two seconds you'd see him getting mauled by a tiger warlike elephant or being in a in a car in the front seat being attacked and I found this amazing like three minute version of the CAL Worthington Song which is like different lyrics. They'd never heard any model any. Make go see cal give your pocketbook pocketbook a break go see county and just like all these different versions that you could see like someone wrote like a three minute song and you could just out any part any verse of it thrown in there for thirty seconds Arrigo. Do you ever speak with a local advertising producer at the cable station. Where worked and he said. All of the business owners who came in especially auto dealers. WanNa you convinced that you when you went to this auto dealer you are going to speak with a mentally ill person but you're going to get you know. Yeah we're all on the commercials that was always some guy with a pig. And he's wearing a barrel and he's got a cowboy hat and he's standing on or you stay on top of water tower or something like that or is wearing a plaid suit and then you can take advantage of. Oh yeah he's a rube he's a rube. And then love that you show up and the guys wearing an Armani suit is back in the back office. He's letting all his his guys do all his work. He's a savvy savvy a business owner but they want you to think that disguise walking picked the parking lot or something like that. That's what's great about like his commercials other than the Jingle. Was that immediately. After the jingle you just go into the pitch and the pitches like him standing in front and just walking down this aisle of cars and he's just like listing off like a model seven hundred ninety five dollars. Nineteen seventy eight Ford Festival. And it's it's so funny and the commercials you know back in the seventies were so cheap. He's got a ship them in this one. Oh sure. If there's like a mega cut that has like everything. And he's like getting pulled by an ostrich and row after row after old cars and trucks. Sorry okay now. That's that's him. It's it's it's so just ingrained as part of my childhood toys. R. Commercials or whatever you know the Kars for kids commercial something. That's so new. Relatively new but like toys R. US. Go See cal is just like right there in my head. Yeah there's another one that didn't make my my list which is probably not in yours. Did a Toyota of orange. No but it was. The same sort of thing is like a used car. Dealerships are the ones that need it. And it's like you won't get a lemon go to live from Toyota of orange that one. They overly pronunciation Toyota. You ever listen to it. It's always Toyota of orange interests. Oh I don't know if it's something from the seventy s where they didn't quite know how to say Japanese words rotate. What was going on whatever it is about like used car dealership commercials. They are just sponges for jingles. Yes both my choices so far have been about giveaway crappy concerts right sue buying or selling them. Yeah I want to thank some of the people from my region of the Midwest who who chimed in with this guy who. When I was a kid I thought he was an international celebrity because he was on TV every break between three stooges and that was This guy called boots Williams and let me see Usually starts with the song that we all know as the stripper. That up out your boots colonel. Billy was the cash strays and I remember that. This colonel billy who was had a little bit of a Colonel Sanders kind of mutton chops. And you just had a little bit of an antebellum kind of charm right to him. He would do commercials and he would be joined. Hey it's colonel billy here and then a couple of months later be Colonel Billy and brother Bob and then after swale Colonel Blink phased out then you signed brother Bob here and brother Bob Bob. This is junior and we're here to talk about the dealing it and then go away and then junior it'd be the guy like pals going on. Varney would show and so I'm going yeah for regional ones. I should mention one of my favorite ones not my region but I was introduced to the commercial a few years ago. Chicago's Mulino wink. Oh never heard of this. Oh it's incredible. Please go find the moon commercial. It's I I won't spoil it for you. It's fantastic okay. Okay Okay Richard Manfreddy. What's your second all right so you mentioned the car. Dealerships are chockablock full of creating goals. Yeah so McDonald's and I actually had a hard time trying to figure out which McDonalds Jingle I should choose for. It's a good time for the great taste up. Mcdonald's that's one that's so funny. Yeah that's the one. That's the first thing I learned how to play on piano when I was six. Or Seven. It could have been the big. Mac Song that only jingle that actually just the whole thing is just spelling out what. The Food Suffers. Ingredients are to be patties. Okay for whatever reason in my head I was for a second. I was thinking of the Mac tonight. Gone back a little bit different but yeah but instead I went with Doo. Doo Doo Doo. Doo. I'm love certainly be most long running of McDonald's jingles and it's got an interesting backstory to the false. There's an actual full song that was leaked by Justin Timberlake as a single. I use leak in quotation marks. Because I'm pretty sure like back. Remember all like that would happen. Like songs will get leaked over the Internet. Yeah Oh no so upset about this. I guess we'll have to release. It is yeah. It's like come on guys. He leaked it yourself okay but they actually took the jingle before it came out as Jingle And made a single out of it the Justin timberlake released as a single really. Is this earlier like right. After he was in the group left the this was in between his first and second album. Okay so it was right before. Sexy back came out. Wow so it's like right before. He became Justin. Yeah motherfucker Timberlake okay. But it's a full-on Justin Timberlake Song. And it's got a female singer doing the duty to do to you. Know beyond like very urbanized beat This certainly was the first. Mcdonald's commercial really I think targeted urban sound And IT'S INTERESTING. There's one Add Wizard Ab AD executive kind of store in Who point out. This is a rare example of a reverse engineering of a of a commercial jingle where they actually released it as a popular song I And then you come use use that to get into the Public Zeitgeist and then released the Wa after that playing samples and I'll get to one later Of The opposite happen. Yeah but this is where something was. The first to Jingle Jingle became popular. Wow this is the opposite. This is when they actually released the full length song. I I think I might queue up that song. I'm imagining I know. If I probably don't know song was called I'm just it's called I'm Lovin it It did not chart in the United States but it made its way to number fifteen in Ireland. Is that right? Yeah because the Irish only release about twenty songs a week at any one time so I.

No because the magic the magic the magic number in the soul hip hop community was born. Three may stubborn me. And that's the magic number else. Yeah what does that mean. Exactly Growing up as a kid watching SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK'S ON YOUR LOCAL ABC affiliate. I did not realize this was actually the first song that was written and created for the schoolhouse rock franchise was it. Yeah so so the person who came up with the Perseus saying in rootless guy named Bob Dorough not Yahoo Dot like last year. I think or something like that. Not Bob derosa former guest show Baabda ro And he had been a jazz musician. Oh check sheldon died. Sorry Yeah and and he had was had been recording jazz albums but he started out kidding a job in advertising because it paid better than jazz but but there's an advertising guy who got basically but the heroine's even just as you know the the scat advertising numbers. So there's a guy named David McCall who also worked in advertising and basically he said. Hey my son can't memorize their timetables yet but they sing along with all these pop songs. So maybe you could write a song. They were to help them learn their multiplication tables. And he's a don't write it down to children may get like a cool song so he came up with three is the magic number and in the song lifts off long talking about being a magic number because there's three in the family at least. This is a nuclear family. I suppose your traditional family triangle having three sides enlist the multiples of threes. So three six nine. So it's basically a way for kids to be able to memorize their multiplication tables of three so He loved the song wound up getting his is art director to dismantle nation to it they sent it off to Michael Eisner. Who you may have heard of at the time was the head of daytime programming at ABC and Chuck Jones owns who was also very much involved at ABC's daytime programming at the time and They said they love it. Why don't we do a whole series of these so have schoolhouse rock's because of three is the magic number? That's pretty cool. So that's not only a great catchy song with a Pretty Fun Fund cover by blind melon on schoolhouse. Rock's covers album that came out in the nineties. But also all the other schoolhouse rock rock songs that you love. Yeah Oh this gratitude. That's pretty red. How we watched Reality Bites recently and there's an opening scene scene where they're all all these Gen xers all out of school singing rocks songs and I remember thinking man is puts me off to this movie. We just. They think they're so cool. Janine Garoppolo all of them but that's a good choice has been holed up by the way you know Sh- She should have gone with Michael the entire time. Yeah the best actor He's the one that was nice to her and he's nice and stable and maybe that's just just a forty one year old person's perspective looking back but Hawk was spouses. Yeah she was like yeah. I don't think she really cared for either very much. Yeah the right choice choose either. Yeah which I think is almost seems like broadcast. News had the same dilemma for our female protagonist which are the guys in each each of them were kind of do she said I'm sorry right to the day lasalle versus that's okay? That was also obviously they also planted the seed in their heads as well also winfield. What's your first? My first number is the number number zero oh not Zilch Nada Zip Nada. Nothing Love An. Oh oh I thought this was. I thought zero is a very interesting number. It's also the Billy Corgan number when you think of cool guys wearing zero being bald and a rock and roll guy. There's nothing cooler than in one thousand nine hundred five when Billy Corgan had a bald head and the words zero written across his chest declaring himself. I'm nothing that is pure rock and roll but zero is just always an interesting Number represents nothing which is a sometimes hard to define as a state. I was reading a little bit about how. Oh you know. No one had zero defined for the longest time it wasn't until recently and it was like zero and the idea of nothing thing in zero has been around for hundreds of years of thousands of years before like current culture. Sure read a little bit about the Greeks. How they didn't didn't have zero for a long time? But I think most of the revolved around the idea of it was more philosophical of how can nothing be something something and that's like activities. Stop until much like how do you not have something that represents. Now how many of those do you have if you don't have any. What are you saying response when I literally have one but less than that one one takeaway one and then you're just yeah? Yeah you're in a little loop yeah there you are. I also think zero looks pretty cool as a number on a uniform like a baseball or it's a real tough guy moved to declare yourself not number one but number zero right or even more career the double double zero. Yeah how much of a bad ass you have to be to say. I am zero zero. Just go for three years of that point. Yeah why not four zero. When's this guy is just going to be so confident that they have six Zeros on their Jersey and he was like can't top six zero zero? Is that the name of the kid in Grand Budapest hotel. I think the style or something you. Yeah you're thinking of the actor zero Mostel but the actual care but the character name was was named zero zero zero also. The name of the dog in ninety four. Christmas zero is out there as this. It's nothing but it means a lot part of the whole binary numbers Zeros and ones and as us a letter to start anything for your for the listeners across asked upon that when we say beating your dad go back throughout the entire podcast whenever we've said zero. We know whenever says Z.. Do Z. Z.. Is it okay. I don't know what they call zero. Not Not Yeah. Probably when when they when they play noughts and crosses instead of TIC TAC toe nonleague crosses come. Come on. Come on you anti zero prevalent. They're well they're maths or different than ours. See less than zero. Was the East Ace. Jason Allison Jay Z. You're mixing I don't even know what your mix. Jj Ernie those those preppy Yuppie authors right. And I think I let it off. Talking about zero was how many different synonyms there are for zero to represent nothingness nothingness except for like. You can't do that with one. Maybe but that's different language but zero has has a lot of things Zip Nada. Yeah not as but like I don't know I just think it's unique in that way. Okay Ricardo your second choice. Who Doesn't love Pie Right Delicious Bloodier Putin likes it? Okay I always write down notes. Yeah picks three point one four. We'll start getting into it. That's all I got. That's all I got to So Pie which is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter And the main reason I bring this up because there are people who there are competitions for people to memorise Pi. Yeah to however many numbers can memorize it to in some. The people like there is a the previous world record Pat Been Six sixty seven thousand eight hundred ninety places by Chow number of China. Oh is that when your numbers which was since surpassed by reserve meany of India who we sided seventy thousand decimal places? I did do an AH I gotta say if any of you who are in the competitive. Pi Memorization Movement are listening. Listen Yeah Stop It. Stop Stop It. Obviously you have a talent for being able to memorize random numbers things things. You're memorization is off the charts. Yeah do you realize what good you could be doing to the earth somehow. I'm not sure how but there has to be a better use of your skills than just memorizing random. A random string of numbers. The thing is that like can you say well. What's the twelve thousand three three hundred and twenty second letter number in digital pie? Can they go in. And we think one four four or yeah they have to count it all out. I think 'cause I don't think it's any. I think the way that you memorize that is probably you. Break it down to series of strings and then you memorize those strings so you remember remember the first in the second ten so on and so on I I imagine there is a mathematical formula or number number something that is so powerful and so important that it almost merits that kind of dough. dotage that right but the it is I mean. I think that it's it is a very important mathematical number us. Pipe cure cancer. Solved the the distance from you do use it to you using straw astronomy and stuff like that astrophysics things like that You know I love it that it's it's how biggest is how. How big is Pie? No one knows for sure. It's a mystery. It's like stone in fifth. There are like supercomputers that are just crunching these numbers for forever and they're like up to the trillionth digit of Pi. And there's just some guy that's like I'm I'm at sixty seven thousand memorizing like the computers in the future. That are even less impressed with us. We'll come across these record books and be like the he's an. He's an athlete like marathon runner right by a car and drive twenty six miles but he also like the fact my bros.. The Babylonians Yeah. They thought three and one eight. Yeah that's good enough close enough. That's as close as we're GONNA get to buy and that's fine because you know what probably yes really I mean. Do you really need to get exact. Malaria worry about Mongol hordes at our door a three point four eight. That's good we're good okay winfield. What's that number that you need when you just need sixty to go one more more? Oh eleven eleven most blokes here. We're all on ten all the way up all the way up all the way up. Where can you go from there nowhere really? Why don't you just make ten one louder? Extra brilliant the number eleven and cannot be uncoupled from this moment in a move believes called Tufnell's law. It's just the number eleven and not think of being one louder than ten on the movie. Yeah this is spinal tap. That's great choice just failure of logic when it's pointed out and he's just he's McEwen gums smoking a cigarette and then Mardi debris is sitting there like nodding very seriously like he's really taking this all in the plays like a beautiful piano Tude and it's called Lick my love pump. uh-huh Mina the saddest key. I it's hard for me the reference on the show. This is spinal tap. That comes up the coast. I think it is probably one of the most important movies in all of our lives medically and I felt it was right to kick off the year. Also also referencing this Google but eleven is just one of those that it's turned into something in real life where I think there are some Marshall amps. That's that make their amps. Go to eleven. I'm sure they did. What Marty Debakey did they just made it eleven slightly ten slightly Latte or whatever mates eleven? They just dumped everything else. But I I dislike the idea of a number that is just so simple and embedded in society as just as that it does Surmise the one of manship been male the testosterone driven car crock. You know he does have a lot of the stoop pity of toxic masculinity. Yeah and it's power dramatic. She's always good for a number. Yeah Yeah like me a good pal and trump number..

"Mount Rushmore. podcast sorry about the delay of recent shows. This episode. Two hundred is our season. Recap show that was supposed is to come out at the very end of last year but it didn't the holiday crunch delayed it a bit but we're back on track for twenty twenty also. I fully fully understand the irony of being late especially after I posted about two hundred straight weeks of episodes in the first few minutes of this episode. You're about to hear I must have been tempting. FATE ENJOY HEY everybody. Welcome to the Mount. Rushmore of the Mount Rushmore. PODCASTS season for four Mount Rushmore 's my name is Jeff and I'm join has always been my good friends Richard and Michael. If you followed us this far you know what they do. And we have had a few of these year end episodes before so you may have heard one so you know what they're like where we look back and we gratefully examine the opportunity. We've had to get together and debate and deliberate the most ubiquitous quits aspects of any given thing and talk about it. And you've listened to we appreciate it So we'll gonNA reminisce about fun. We've had who wants to start. I'll start okay. This is is also are two hundred episode holy smokes and we have been doing. Listen this is something that I'm very proud of two hundred. No of the known episodes released episode wide. This is one one nine nine. No we had one hundred. No we have this. This is me talking. We had one hundred ninety eight episodes that we'd recorded like for the actual episode released one. Earlier this year from the vaults Disney opening up yeah otherwise known as we were too lazy to record that when we are never too lazy we were just busy. Sure sure three men three busy families and this is our two two hundred episode and we've done two hundred weeks in a row. We have never missed one while some of the late. Like maybe on a Friday or Saturday or something. uh-huh maybe a Monday but very proud of that various produce spent the last four years with you two gentlemen doing this thing that we devoted devoted to just kind of on a whim. KICKBALL was dying down. Yes podcast hadn't even warning missing. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah we're going to be like the you know like when when you hear the story about the blues men who nobody remembers the one who invented slide guitar. That's right that's us. Yes Richard Men Freddie we were. We were at a restaurant and I was this before. We came out here and bring the Little Place Mat for my child and the crayons John's which he ignored so I started coloring my wife and I invented making it darker around the edges slightly lighter Felix says what are you talking talking about and I said just a funny joke just a funny joke my first choice for this year the Mount Rushmore of breaking the fourth wall. Oh Wow I love this conversation. I loved that we both started out with the same thing. Richard which is it's Garry shandling show right and then it just kind of went on from they are. We talked about the sensational she. Hulk talked deadpool. We talked him out the song glass onion and also this episode episode featured my favorite pick. That has ever been done on this podcast. But don't any one of us. Oh and that was Richard's choice for duck amok. Oh Nice which I thought was just I. I was mad at myself for not choosing it and it was. If you don't know the cartoon it is a Chuck Jones cartoons yes featuring Daffy duck primarily being drawn interest rate and being changed and east constantly talking back to the animator and of course by the end you pull out reveal that it's doing in but I was so mad that I didn't choose it and it was so jealous of Richard for choosing it and it was just one of those things that makes this podcast Sir just delightful just like Oh. I was too narrow minded ended or I wasn't I wasn't broad enough. Think outside the box enough especially for breaking the fourth wall right and I just thought that this is one of those. This was one of those great episodes that I thought we. We are all firing on like also under. Yeah it's one of my favorite episodes of the season as well. All right.
"mt" Discussed on Mt. Rushmore Podcast
"Herself or himself in films and Richard is up all right so my next choice and we talked about Adam Sandler very briefly last week's episode and I have you've a love hate relationship with Adam Sandler okay ninety percent of his movies. I really don't like the ten percent that hit. They really hit punchdrunk. No okay are happy Gilmore. Okay and Bob Barker getting into a fistfight. Oh that's fun with Happy Gilmore a prime example of care of a a beloved. You know celebrity. Someone who has been and in our homes has powered us through all of our sick days when we were kids. Yeah just you know beloved person who only wants us to make sure we're staying being in new during our pets May. Bob Should've been spayed or neutered. Turns out anyway and just an example of taking that lovable personality warm and just take totally turning it on its head turning him into this ultracompetitive jerk who gets. It's mad because happy Gilmore is not playing well and screwing up their pro-am And the whole thing goes out of spirals out of control and they wind up with a fistfight on the golf course. Yeah the two things I love about. This is one. Bob Barker apparently did his own stunts really for this even though he was like seventy five years old at the time because he was like a karate guy. Oh Pretty Cool Roddy yeah And the other thing is that he he would only do the role if if they could ensure that he won the fight. That's bat shit crazy. That's like Jason Stadium in the rock type stuff where they have people blonde set to count. How many times they get punched so that they can punch the other person? Yeah one more time. But it's Bob fucking Barker. That's wild to me. Who are the guys that stuck on? You fairly brothers fairly brothers if the fairly brothers. We're making happy Gilmore. There is no way that Bob Barker wins that fight. Like he's just beaten down like they need to they need to subvert it too when he comes out is it bad ass and then subverted again until it's taken too far right. I love the idea Bob Barker. Don't come in one though because that goes into the idea of like the ego and and making yourself something that you are non which is I mean. Maybe he's into Kara Tae. But you know into at least wears high corrupting I don't know Yeah I I just I I love that idea I love of of course talking about iconic lines from the movie. There's there's no more iconic line from happy Gilmore than the price is wrong bitch. Yeah And again I think it's just one of those things when you see a celebrity play themselves elves in film very often. They're not there they can either play a hyper realist. Version of themselves or they can play themselves as completely completely opposite of their of their whatever their public personas and this is an example of obviously the latter. This seemed like an opportunity to break free of the identity. You've been pegged with so. I think that was something that extra did a lot. I know that. TV Right. Let let that person auto sorry. Are you getting paid by extra little bit extra extra sugar. Free Okay A winfield Julia Roberts as Julia Roberts Oh in ocean swells the shit out of me did it really yeah Because why I think because she was pregnant. I think that the Catherine's at our role Catherine Zeta Role Catherine Zeta Jones. Roll like a Sushi restaurant. I'll have the Sukey on venture I think. The Catherine Zeta Jones role was probably her role or something before she was pregnant. I don't know for sure because it's eleven wasn't he i. So Yeah Julia Roberts yes wasn't Ocean's eleven yes yes. She's the main love interest of Danny Ocean. I'm guessing by the time they got to Ocean's twelve. Oh they probably rewrote the script when they discovered the couldn't do his pregnant okay. She was pregnant with twins at the time and so she comes in to you know. There's this harebrained scheme about stealing. Like the first stock certificate ever exchange. Because they're trying to pay back all the money they stole from Joe Montana I fill and whatever you know. It's a harebrained scheme. It's a harebrained film and don't think about it. Too involving like a Holographic Faberge egg and you know it's it's nonsense that movies always do with a sequel as they take it overseas. Take it to Europe First films always set New York or L. A. or whatever and then like all right. We got the budget for the second film. Let's increase it by thirty million dollars in. Let's go for vacation film in Europe. Yeah so this. Entire plot that they get into Julie Lewd characters her character from the first movies tests and then in the second film they have to rope test back into it because they need her to pose. As as Julia Roberts S. Julia Roberts because she looks close enough to Julia Roberts to steal this egg get close to whatever it. Of course they bring her in dress her up. She's supposedly pregnant even though she's actually pregnant and she's about to steal this thing. And of course Bruce Willis walks in and Bruce Willis knows Julia Roberts because celebrities all we know each other and then he realizes licensed or this is who it is but I loved it they. I love the idea of playing somebody playing themselves. They're actually themselves and I thought it was just a a cute. Although you know kind of you know we're talking about Faberge eggs but it's kind of like an Easter Egg or like like a Russian doll sort of thing. Who who are you when you're acting? Yeah having to act as someone acting as you. Yeah but this version of you. Yeah the one thing that kind of peeved me is which of the films started with them. Ocean's eleven starts with our our cast is kind of hustling these. TV actors who are playing themselves for Grace Yeah overgrazed when I remember yeah and so I remember thinking Oh cool. That's how they're going to make us forget the fact that these guys are all these huge actors by their huge huge film actress by having them in a world where some TV actors are real TV actors. They're really themselves. But Brad Pitt is just a dude right right so for me. That helped me kind of reduced the star power. Just get into. These guys scares so by the time it gets to Julia. Roberts playing herself. I think well fuck you just. What really does that mean? There's a Brad Pitt in the bread in. Yeah Yeah these people just all happen to look like these speed. That's that's I think that's one of the things that always Stroz we off. Whatever movie does something well? Yeah you're tearing down the wall that I didn't know that you put up in eleven. That's that's what peeved about it. The Oceans Dark University. Don't yeah yeah so cool. Go pull Manfredi wrap it up so my last one is John Malkovich John Mara. Oh is there also we're talking. You were talking a little bit about a Julia Roberts. Being kind of a Meta as Meta as a as a celebrity playing playing themselves can't get. I have John Malkovich as John Malkovich in being knocker. Richardson type out and have apple. Second try to correct tally. And you're just like no. Just let me try to mangle spelling Malkovich please. I got this apple notes. A fantastic movie You know a chance for John Malkovich to not only play himself. Play himself as John Kuzak inside of his head or John cusack character actor at least so we had to not only act as this hyper realistic version of himself. WHO's kind of an asshole? Yeah But also this weird puppeteer not your artsy mousy version of himself. The John Cusack is playing. Who is now inside of control again it is it is it is an actor's occurs dream to be like I have to climb inside myself and then at some point he climbs inside himself right playing himself as he enters his own body? And then as you know Malkovich of Al Qaeda and like that must be just like there are some actors that you you must imagine. It's him and and it's Daniel Day Lewis. Yeah that just enveloped these roles and you think that Oh my God this the role that was written for him he he must have just been so delighted for for and it's one of those that like this couldn't have been made without his okay like I'm sure he wrote trauma he wrote. He wrote it thinking well. I'm just going to write this. Can I talk them into it. Yeah I don't know what or did he do. Did Charlie Kaufman. No and being like I'm writing this movie. I wonder if Kaufman had ascended by then to being this kind of pet screenwriter in Hollywood and so people Blake John. Malkovich might have known him as Quirky Guy who was Kinda becoming an indie darling. But I could see the price of entry for any performer gallic garlic Christopher walken. If you say you got to play you gotTa play Christopher Walken. They have to know like I always think of like Markovic. I thought he thought of himself as a chameleon type of performer who can do any kind of role but clearly. He just wants to do he John Malkovich and then he knows who John Malkovich is and knows. Oh I'm that guy who has that could didn't you also do some. NFL stuff to where he was playing this overblown he was doing doing. This is big big bombastic. Kind of of you know he. He's kind of like the mook from Chicago. WHO DOES ALMOST SHAKESPEAREAN type of move or Tori? So so I look this up because I wanted to be accurate with what I said. Yeah it was written specifically John Malkovich in mind but without any sort of relationship between Charlie Kaufman and John Malkovich. It was just. He thought this is the person that has to be. This is who it's GonNa be fun to watch. Can I go through. All of. He's yeah the motions of it was just a fun fun person to see have to go through all of this and so he just Kinda wrote it hoping John Malkovich or would go along along with it. And apparently John Malkovich's I thought was. Why are you doing this? Why me yeah being Tom Cruise? That'll more tickets. Yeah Tom Cruise is a much bigger. Draw why John Malcolm John Malkovich. Because it's funnier that way. Yeah I know. I've told this story on the podcast but I'll reiterate it. There's the one scene where car drives past as John Malkovich in John Q.. X Characters are walking on the street and car drives passing. Here's some GonNa think fast Malkovich and like pegs him in the head with an empty beer can that apparently was not scripted. Apparently there is an extra thought. It'd be funny to do that during the shot. And so when using Malkovich get pissed off about it legitimately pissed off the real shit. That was that was not planned. Wow Wow so. There's a little bit more metaphor you. That's kind of amazing using so. That is the Mount Rushmore of persons in films playing herself or himself or themselves or they selves itself. Okay do that too. I don't want to disrespect to anybody's pronouns. Okay so it is myself opportunity right now to choose and I think we gotta go with Jay. Leno gotta do that podcast. It's been going for like two an episode. We should do. We should head over to Bob's big boy and see if he wants to come on. Let's go straight now. burnouts curry now striving right down through to Hunga and then stepping going to ridiculous nineteen fourteen Berg or something's got yeah any spare green alcohol. I need to put some fuel in my car. Okay and let's go with with wait. What do we do? Oh what did I pick one yet. Jalen Jay Leno okay. And we'll go with John Malkovich and it's kind kind of I've been reading a lot about him lately and I love him. So let's go with Bowie and see And and because of the love we're go for cream are sorry Keno Keno Keno. It's all of these Keno Kinnock Taylor number. Nine number. Nine has had such a within like three years cans on sticky. Anna's come and everyone one is like I'm so on board with. Oh yeah and it hasn't it's not waning. I can't wait for the new matrix to come out in a couple of years to bring it all to sit down or in the mountains. The new builds riot bill. and Ted's three. Yeah I'm not so worried about bill and Ted's three the matrix that but then John four coming back and back at you man okay. This has been the rush more of them theirselves and I as always am playing. Jeff I am Richard Manfreddy playing Richard Richard Man Pretty in the podcast Richard Nixon.

"Yeah all the pretense has it can be dropped. I can make fun of myself these. You know if if you're a good sport if you are if you're truly okay with yourself you are willing to make fun of yourself all the people that put up all the walls walls around like I can only be only have like you said earlier the best lines I can only be seen in the best light like this. Must be a great moment moment of him and he's just like Oh sure whatever beat myself and apparently the the real life Kanye reeves was his main concern when taking the role as he didn't want to make it all about him. Is He wound itself. He knows a romantic comedy. He knew about the two main characters and he didn't want to overshadow the God. Bless the little bit. Yeah Yeah Yeah Do. There is a series series of Ricky Gervais series that Had everyone. Who would you still doing that? Still and him are we. I don't know I think people don't like him anymore. Okay well every episode. Did I was a person that takes himself too seriously was centered around bringing in a extra extra extra brought in guest star. Sure every if if if this was expanded to TV. And I would grant that Netflix. Making movies doesn't count as TV. Extras was okay credible. Yeah Patrick Stewart one alone Winslett. I've seen everything yeah Daniel Radcliffe. Oh yes I've seen it all with Keanu. A new like literally his the opening scene as they go into this restaurant that's called maximal. It's one of those ones that were really deconstruct food. And he sits down at his first communist it is. Do you have any dishes to play with time. Like the concept of time. And that's like that's basically his character in a nutshell. Yeah he explains these cool. Who'll glasses he's got? My eyes are fine for a role. Look they don't even have Lindsey that sort of where you went up that the restaurant you end loosening to the screams of the animal the weeping. That's the type of work. This is a Morrissey concert concert. He basically is a walking more It's fantastic if you guys have seen a you guys know about if you haven't seen it yet highly recommend okay. I will My next choice is my next choice. Is David Bowie as David Bowie. In the two thousand when movies Ulanda speaking of Extras David Bowie from extras. They had a great cameo onto. This is a film. That was chockablock. Full of guest stars people people playing themselves. Because it was so very celebrity minded from Tyson Beckford to Lance Bass. Fabio Natalie Portman Paris Paris Hilton Winona Ryder and of course Garry shandling but Zulehner featured a great moment where zoo lander under and Hansel have to like. They are two male models and they're trying to prove who is the better male model and at some point they decided this can Only be decided by a walk off. Yeah which is some fictitious thing. That happens in some ultra hip Downtown warehouse and who is to be the judge David Bowie. David boy comes in and he's just glamorous and his axis judge for this ridiculous you know walking contest just stretching down the runway and doing various things but just David Bowie is just perfect. Perfect playing himself in a role that just that is a glamorization cameras. Asian of him that he doesn't need to do much just look amazing amongst all these other morons. It feels a piece of chuck. Norris I in dodgeball as the judge. Yeah very much so I wonder how much of that they just kinda like. Well it worked on Zealander. Let's just take this and run. I knew it again. But he's just so he's so good at being. I think that he has reached a certain level of like I can assume is I. I don't know he's just as who he is and to throw him in there. Such a myth about purses persona. Yeah Yeah you. It's so easy to play off without and it just it just works so perfectly amongst like him standing out amongst like the vapid celebrities that are at the various high fashion events is just is just perfect. He's in it but he's above it and I just rest in peace David Bowie. That was just such a nice role because usually when he is in movies he chooses interesting things to do he doesn't normally take take the piss on himself but like yeah yeah but like you know. He is playing interesting deep thoughtful roles and not yeah and Bowie. In the role of actor is who boy was as a musician position. He was always crafting a role. Anyhow million yeah he was a community he was always performing. This new version of whatever boy was going to be. It was going to be ziggy or the Thin White Duke insane or something.

"It's the Mount Rushmore podcast. My name is Jeff joined as for use by Richard and Michael Howdy. They're normally my good friends. But this time around I just called them Richard Michael. Something's brewing Now now I got nothing. What did we do? Oh No no Air Richard Michael. They like to deliberate them at. Rushmore Vinnie given topic this time around. It's Michael Topic. Is the Mount Rushmore of persons percents. Playing him or her cells in things. Yes splint this all stemmed from an alternate take on this idea. Yeah which was a term that I came up called J FEHB which is Jay Leno playing Jay Leno in movies and he's always playing the same type of character Jay Leno. It's always the same sort of role. which is Jay Leno standing on stage on? TV usually in the background. Some sort of so I guess a kid is the president of the United States is there. He's right here in the room with us on our parents but I just love the idea of Jay Leno and I thought yeah well okay. Maybe that's too limiting. Maybe we don't WanNa talk about Jay Leno for thirty five to forty two minutes. Okay Yeah and I thought well let's yourself so let's expand the idea of someone that plays themselves in a movie. Yeah and that's pretty interesting to one. What sort of role is going to be? Are you going to be playing yourself as a comedian on. TV like Jay Leno does in various roles. Are you going to be someone. That is I don't know like like the is going to be like someone in a band is alive band that considered themselves. You know I believe in a movie like a UH Fast Times fast times maybe back to school something like that like going to school yet. Lingo Boina was the band that was on onstage playing an ongoing wingo song. Also another great person playing himself in back to school. When Kurt vonnegut plays Kurt Kurt vonnegut and gets yelled out because he does he turns in a report and doesn't know anything about finding all? Yeah no he ghost writes. It's a report for Rodney dangerfield about curt. Von Kurt Vonnegut Book and the teachers like nothing about Kurt Vonnegut. He's got his SAG card for coffee. Achievers wanted to do with more jobs where you have to get in so I think that this is a much more wide open category because like when I was starting to research and look it up and I was like Oh there are a lot more movies and oh this is a really interesting take in. Oh my God this can go on for forever of someone that just is playing being themselves or playing. A caricature is version of themselves. Yeah and I love the EGO that is potentially involved in that too. I love the idea is like okay. I I wrote this part for you in the movies. It's like I'm a good actor. I'd I'd love to be in the well. The part is you know. What can I be me? Does this movie even go on if this person. Jason is not in his movie and I think that is. We'll see where this goes right interesting. Okay Manfreddy all right so my first choice. Ah by the way it while. I was researching this. I realized that oftentimes when you have a celebrity playing themselves in a movie they wind up having some of the best lines in the whole movie and I think all of the ones I've chosen i. I think they have some great lines. Oh so just just throwing that out there or something I realize is going through redoing my research. This is certainly no exception. It's Kareem abdul-jabbar her as attendant over turnover as cream abdul-jabbar as lieutenant over in airplanes and I get that right I think he was earnings. Murdoch Murdoch okay. But he's really Korean. Yeah which we find out in the penultimate scene with him where he starts yelling at the Little Kia. WHO Says No? You're Kareem abdul-jabbar. My Dad says you don't Hustle Back on defense. Yes yes we don't quite know it then but it's not until he's pulled out of the seat and he's wearing the tiny laker shorts. So that's the best that's the last seen as he's passed out because he ate the fish and he's got the actual shorts on but that's when he goes into the whole listen. I've been hearing that since I've been. Ucla out there every night night you tell your old man tried dragging linear and Walton up and down the court for Forty eight minutes out the best. Oh Yeah just a great example and cream at the time was seen as somebody who was not was not somebody who is going to be in a comedic world. Yeah he was very much thought of as this very serious the kind of standoffish in some ways. He's transitioned into this esoteric BRAINIAC author and whatever. But at the time he kind of had this he was notorious for having this kind of prickly personality so to see him in this like broad wacky comedy and then to see him having having the self awareness to play like this fictionalized Meta version of himself. Yeah must have been just wild when when airplane for actually till Walton and you think Zanny comedy I'd Love See beloit nearly yeah. He is comedy wherever he goes cream. Definitely not did Kareem to anything before this other than like fight Bruce early in the top of the game death No I believe he was. He may have but I I don't I don't know anything big. That is a hell well. Here's cream anything big. What a hell of a resume to be like? Oh Yeah who's in a game of debt. And then I split like the blind grandmaster at the top of the DOJ. Oh and this is like Oh yeah comedic. Ya highlight three rules on Mannix on sorry a man on Maddox a guy named Jeff. Emergency man stuck in car. That's cast a a little little Honda man from Atlantis. Dark Sort of like these sort of bit role not that. This is a huge role either. Yeah but you know of all of the of all of the quotable things that are happening airplane one of the most quotable movies of all time. This is what that sticks out. Oh Yeah for sure. Oh that's great choice a win. Well I would be remiss if I did not mention Jay. Leno didn't think about it. So my choice Jay Leno. Oh starring in every movie between Nineteen Ninety three and two thousand fifteen though because he was in all of them Dave nineteen ninety-three Wayne's World Two nineteen ninety-three Major League to ninety four for the birdcage contact in outmanned city wag the dog Ed. TV space cowboys. John Q.. Joanna man calendar girls stuck on you. Mr Three Thousand First Auto cars starring as Jay Leno. Oh that's hilarious The astronaut farmer underdog the Great Buck. Howard I'm still here? deliveryman in Ted to doing I'm doing basically the same thing where he would flash to television and you need some sort of social commentary of Jay Leno being on the tonight show where the tonight show or whatever of him telling some sort of hacky jokes that Jay is so good. Yeah and the other night. Emily me watching the birdcage and he did the exact same thing. When he's talking about Senator Kevin Kelly who is the The super serious character played by I gene Hackman. And just he's he's not caught but his like his friend is stuck in some sort of underage sex scandal and and it just like. What do you need Jay Leno? Yeah we need Jay Leno Air and it's funny how he just ground you into a certain sense of reality The the movies do this every once in a while would like the McLaughlin group where he flash to I think they were in in like Independence Day or some sort of thing like that where you need some sense of reality of aliens attacking the world or whatever it is all all you need is to show that their jokes being made in this reality and they're all being done by Jalen let is kind of his are because you would think at at some point it would be some other show like was there another did did. It's funny because a carry. reasoner think it should have been his show. Occasionally you'll see like you know in a movie though flash to a television production or it's like the news. Yeah and it doesn't feel the real news. It feels like a production of news. But if you see Ed Kramer on their right if you see like the MSNBC logo so if you see Jay Leno making a joke in the movie day like what does the President Mitchell lately has this guy been having too many happy meals. I'm I'm reading this off. I am the but these are the types of like. That's all you're gonNA get and Jay. Leno can retire off of just. Oh Yeah nineteen movies. I mentioned and yeah like just the paychecks that you get this off joke or whatever. 'CAUSE IT requires you to go into the full setup and use the stage to use his production company. I'm sure Oka- those particular regular season. I would imagine like and he just has this industry. That's all built off of you have to think of when was OJ. Ninety Ninety three ninety four four like he's just got in under the wire before he kinda took off with the Dancing Ito's and all that he he became just this name brand while how easy is it for him to just sitting there just put on the time like five minutes gotTa do this Happy Times. Can you make it look more like. You're reading the prompt. No problem no problem. All right man Freddie all right it's my second one is a private probably. I believe the most recent one on this list it is Keanu Reeves. Always be my. Maybe oh the netflix movie. Yes with Alli Wong and Randall Park and and I got a chance to watch this a couple months ago and I off really great movie. Okay if you'd have not had a chance to see it I'm getting kind of blank. Looks go I have offered that as the Olive branch for the girl. Friendly movie to my wife hung on Netflix. Do you want to see this. I don't WanNa see this but but it looks like okay. Maybe I can tolerate this as a girl movie. Yeah it's not clear really because you enjoy it it is. It's just a good movie but enjoyed it and I'm she's passes on it every time uh-huh she's racist that's true she engines this about yes. Jen Baskin Hates Asians. Yeah just there's one thing I know about your wife. She hates retract. That I do too. Okay so not to spoil too much of the movie but at some point Can Arrive says basically break-up or the The the rebound boyfriend for Allie. Wong's yeah okay. And he is playing Keanu Reeves. Yeah and he is playing cannery as the ultra hip story..
