Taking Off! with Aircraft Photography
"Welcome back to another episode of this week and Photo GonNa Treat for you today I'm speaking with John Thou-. He's down in southern California and he's doctor for slash illustrator who's WHO's made his mark taking amazing photographs of some amazing aircraft, and I'm excited to talk to him John Welcome to the show man how you doing. Frederick I'm doing great. Thanks you know you you you are very welcome. I'm excited dive into this 'cause you as you and I discussed our pre interview. Air Force, x Airforce Guy Air Force combat photo journalist used to take pictures of these planes haven't been in any of these planes the. No the only aircraft that I've flown in a U. H one in you know. Huey right. So photographers used to fly around with the doors open taking pictures of rocket launches and stuff like that. But I never had the opportunity to get in a fast burner. One of these guys. So a jealous. Don't be totally jealous. We've been around a whole lot of them, but I gotTA. Tell you post nine eleven that change for us to, and there's there's a lot of that I, the majority of my flight time in the amazing aircraft been really warbirds We've done some stuff with the air force where were in Casey one, thirty, five and I say. I say we that is not the royal we I it's I know we're talking about my catastrophe but my two sons have been a very integral part of slick pixels and we've been photographing with knee since they were. Gosh. Publishing were about eight years old each and so that's That's been a part of that. So when I say we, you want everybody to understand I'm talking about the three of us in that respect. But yeah, with the fast with the quote on quote fast air. We have not had that opportunity as much as we would alive. Civilian stuff and and some transports in some dice photo platforms but anyhow, don't be too jealous. AM still jealous though I mean. To be around those aircraft and and shoot 'em how we got you into this. Line of photography, what was the path that you that led you to the runway? That's a great question. So as a kid, my dad was a pilot private pile even though we had a commercial rating as as my grandfather was really my grandfather that I flew with primarily He was kind of the head electricity out at point Mugu and so in addition to his Gosh in addition to his pilot's love for aviation as piloting skills in world war two, he had flung be seventeens. Primarily stateside So he wasn't he was not on combat missions at that time, but anyway it at Magoo he had one of these things was to help with the air show every year. So from about the time I was about seven years old I was at I couldn't get enough point. Know I was out there and a garage in wonderful navy stuff and air force stuff and whatever every single year and. My family would always go out one day a year, and then I talked him into taking be with him and and I kind of go out there with him and he had set it up to where I was sitting with the pilots and going back and forth with the whether it was the blue angels or whoever needs set me up with some vendor on the flight line that I could go get lunch and I pretty much have the run of the place all weekend from the time of as eight years old. So that's what started it. I had a little Brownie camera that belonged to my mother that. You know there's actually GonNa, get a book I have coming out later this year there's a couple of those little shots still back in those days they used to they used to fire live sidewinders during an airshow and. Again today was pretty great. So how did you manage to avoid enlisting or signing up and going going top gun? You look like you could have been the top gun pilot. What happened I love that you say that Man I. Come in addition to photographic. Ask by the way I, did go in and I talked to a recruiter on more than one occasion. At the particular time I was going through I know now that I got what turned out to be a bad advice. I was told that I was too tall for fighters and I know now that that was not true I'm about six one. That's you know. So while I had sat in a t thirty eight felt a little cramped got a couple of buddies who do this professionally that are bigger guys than I did just find so. At the time I think they were looking for cargo pilots looking back on it sure the colleen and done that. But you know with my art career that had started to take off a bit and one thing leads to another I realized. I. Couldn't do both, and so I've done a lot of graphic design work in support of the military as well. So done doesn't work as a civilian contractor that way. So that's that's kind of how it ended up. You know at a God had different plans can I tell you but it's definitely the the road not taken for me.

"On a typical weekend nights in Oakland. Nine hundred and sixty five. Sonny Barger had just received a call. One of his fellow hells angels was in trouble at a local bar. Sunny arrived to survey the scene at the four hundred club. He soon spotted the angel in his girlfriend being hassled by half a dozen guys from the local chrome shop. The ringleader had had just enough beers to be brave enough to trash. Talk the toughest guys in Oakland Sunny stocked over cool and collected to tell his brother that it was time to go and for good measure. He stuck twenty-five automatic in the mouth of the ringleader. Just to let him know what would happen if he didn't stop running his mouth. Shut him up sunny and the angel left but the Gulf remained doubled back inside to retrieve her through the window. Sunny spotted the ringleader. Giving her trouble he shook his head big mistake he'd already been warned once. Sunny stormed back in walked up to the guy and hits him on the side of the head with his twenty-five but the gun accidentally went off grazing. The man's skull sunny chuckled to himself.

Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at podcast and twitter podcast network this week with telling the story of Sonny Banga Legendary President of the Oakland Biker? Gang the hell's angels this week. We'll be exploring his club's rise to national infamy alongside the counterculture movements of the nineteen sixties. Next week we'll see how drugs and crime changed the face of the club forever in Nineteen Sixty three twenty five year old. Sonny Bono was president of the Oakland. Chapter of the hells angels. This meant he sat at the top of the burgeoning empire of outlaw motorcycle clubs known for drinking fighting and dealing drugs. Many anti-establishment organizations like these actually rose to prominence after world. War Two military veterans. Who had trouble fitting back into the square world of the nineteen fifties needed somewhere to go and shoot the breeze? Hollywood saw the appeal to the Marlon Brando movie. The Wild One introduced audiences across America to the world of leather jacket wearing motorcycle. Gangs causing mayhem. Wherever they went. But in the summer of nineteen sixty three sunny bargar had a bigger concern establishing his Oakland Charter as the dominant. Hells Angel Club even more powerful than the Founding San Bernardino Chapter. He also wanted to unite with other outlaw motorcycle clubs around the State. Sure they spent a fair amount of time beating each other up and jockeying for territory but they could put their beef aside to unite against a common foe. The cops so sunny bargar had an idea that would eventually become a hells angels tradition the Labor Day. Weekend RUN OUTLAW. Motorcycle clubs from all over the state would unite in Porterville California a medium sized town halfway between Fresno and Bakersfield there was no Setai Tin Ary. Just a plan to drink smoke weed and get up to whatever. Mischief found them. Sunny Bargar led his Oakland. Hells angels into Porterville to rendezvous with four other leading clubs the stray Satan's the galloping goose's the Coleman sheriffs and the cavaliers in all there were about two hundred bikers invading a town of about nine thousand people. At first everything went according to plan with bikers from different clubs bonding over drugs and women then an Oakland Angel Named Charlie. Magoo was having a drink in a bar minding his own business when an old townie through a beer in his face as soon as Magoo leapt to his feet. The old townie realized he'd made a grave error. There was no way he could take this guy in a fight. The townie bumbled an apology but it was too little too late. Magoo punched him in the face. The old man stumbled so Magoo punched him a second time. Then a third. The old man collapsed on the floor. Knock out but instead of settling things the townie went home grabbed. A gun came back and pointed it at Magoo. This was his town. These angels needed to go Vista Magoo had backup a group of fellow. Angels grabbed townies gun and turned it back around on him. They all took turns beating him until he had to be sent to the hospital. Meanwhile sunny was presiding over a Bachan. All that had taken over the Porterville main drag motorcycles were racing each other down the street the bikers girlfriends and female hangers on. Were having wet. T shirt contests. Everyone was drunk high or both. The angels stopped any vehicles passing through town and forced open. Their car does if they were young women in the car. They attempted to pull them out so they could join the party whether they wanted to on not not. Everyone was thrilled namely the Porterville. Chief of police. He worried he was losing control of the situation so he called out to other counties for backup by nine thirty PM over two hundred and fifty cops rolled into downtown to stop the madness. Their first move was to set up a blockade hoping to direct the bikers. Down One road out of town once was set the chief got on the Bullhorn and announce the bike has had five minutes to clear out. Meanwhile fire trucks spreads soapy water down the main streets making it impossible to race they turn their hoses on bikers. Knocking them off their harleys. Local teens even got into the action climbing to the tops of buildings and throwing bricks down onto the street faced with an army of guns hoses and bricks. The bikers had no choice but to leave town. Sunny led his bikers to the parking lot of Sports Center. A few miles outside of town to assess the situation as they counted their ranks. They realized they were missing for members who had been knocked off their bikes and arrested. Some of the other clubs wanted to give up and peel out. They trusted that lost members to bail themselves out of jail and find their way home but sunny refused to leave without all of his Oakland. Hells Angels Brothers. So at two thirty. Am they turned their bikes around and headed? Back to PORTERVILLE SEVILLE COPS had lined up squad cars to block the bridge leading into town and they were prepared to wait as long as it took for the hells angels to leave town for Good. Sunny wasn't intimidated. By the show of force. He ordered his bikers to line up in a counter blockade across the other half of the bridge. If the cops wouldn't let people into town. Then the hells angels wouldn't let anyone leave either. It was a standoff. Eventually a highway patrol officer approached sunny to try and broker peace sunny told the officer he just wanted his men back and would gladly pay the twenty five dollars for their bail. The officer took them to the portable chief of police. But the chief didn't think twenty five dollars was enough his counter-offer fifty thousand dollars. Sunny exploded in anger. He was trying to play by the rules. And these cops were trying to take advantage of him. Sensing a confrontation. The highway patrol officer scrambled to get the chief to agree to a low a bail sunny and the chief agreed to fifty dollars. And the Hells Angels. Pass the hat to raise the money. It seemed like a fair resolution. Yet by the time sunny and the bikers finally left town. They found another row of cops waiting for them. Ready to pull over any angel. Whose bike wasn't up to code and as a group devoted to customizing their rides. This was damn near all of them. This was the last Straw for Sonny. They were done being stopped by the cops. He ordered his men to outrun the police and they did in just one night sonny. Berger proved himself the undisputed leader of the hells angels and the baddest of all the outlaw bikers in California.
How to Tell When It's Time to Splurge
"In our day jobs. We get to help folks make financial decisions and a lot. The top people equate that to like how save more build wealth. How do this thing but we talk about all the time? One of our favorite things to do is to be that voice reason that tells tells people when they can take their foot off the pedal where they can actually enjoy some of the fruits of their labor. We just did a show. That's always were to the show ideas. Come from what we just on that show. We're I I was very self confessional about the fact that I'm no longer consider myself a tight. What now if you were attending the livestream I still have a lot of tightwad tendencies? I just can't get those out of my system but it is one of those things where I love it when we talked about this in pre show planning we are now that you unleashed windy. We tell clients that they could actually spend. When do we tell people we're going to be able to that? Ought to be a show. When do we actually get to live like no one else? We hear these things. You're saving saving saving but Wendy. When do you start to put that needle over to? It's okay and give yourself permission. Because that's the biggest thing one of the favourite parts of being financial advisor. Here's the negative. You have to tell people. They're spending too much but there is a huge positive. Actually for a lot of our clients is that they've been so good at accumulating assets. They actually have a hard time. Tom Breaking the habit of building that we tell them. It's okay to start consuming contrite and I love it when we get to break that point to them I think one of the common misnomers that people have is that oh well that happens at retirement or that happens at the financial independence. Were actually going to talk to you today. About not only. Does it happen there. But they're actually times throughout your accumulation accumulation journey throughout your building journey. Where you can give yourself the freedom even if you're young even if you're early on even if you're in the beginning stages where it's okay to spin so long asks you're doing the things you're supposed to do so let's jump right into these and I was so excited about this slide? And here's the first slide is is foosteps are followed by the way. Here's what I think is awesome. I'd like to tell you my entire life is very. I can't say Mr Magoo because I just gotten to be so old forrest gump might very well become. It's kind of getting everyone recognize but I do feel like I m the accidental success story on most things and once again I've stumbled into something awesome is that we've been talking about for years. Financial Order of operations. I mean it is one of the if I call it money guy won a one. You want to understand financial order of operations. One of our. I came here it was youtube or podcast world but money got family members said we love the foosteps house. Like Oh oh my gosh. This is one step closer today Grohl because it is because when I do all this stuff completely by accident I'm like this means that Dave Grohl on are meant to be best friends. Ah I mean it really is a son that we're supposed to thunder Dave. If you're listening we'd love to have you on the show. So let's talk about this because I do WanNa talk about well. Financial Order of operations. This is one of those things and we're going to go much deeper in this. I've got some things in the works even late last night I was working on some ideas with his financial order of operations and I wanted to kind of go through this rather quickly and we know that we have other resources in the past that people can look into but this is when we talk about financial order of operations. But let's go through these pretty quickly and science sign number. One is not that you've completed it but that you are following the steps correctly and so in order to know if you're following the steps correctly you have to actually know what the steps are so step number one of the money orders. Operations is the deductibles covered You WanNa make sure that you have that money set aside that can get you out of the ditch if things things are going haywire you at least have enough to cover health insurance deductibles auto deductibles homeowners deductibles whatever's required. If there were a catastrophic event you have it there to get you out of the pitch this is where you know most people we know the stats. I'M GONNA cover it in a minute. Most people can't come up with a thousand dollars. So you're right. This is just to keep you from the danger. He's home. You have a really yarn poppin bottles on number one. This is just like I said to keep this thing from running aground and remember because I don't think I set up the the the financial order of operations. What makes this so foundational? Is that just like we talk about time. We think a lot of finances very math. Based I mean matter of fact people get onto onto they say no behavior behavior. Well Yeah we get the behavior but if you're not taking if you're neglecting the maths or you are doing this thing all wrong and that's why we just spoke. Oh could a group of structural engineers. We got hard to come up and talk about that. In the first thing we did was we showed him a math equation. That had exponents in it. It had parentheses it had multiplication tables had division had some subtraction and addition and we ask them we said how in the world did you guys know how to do this and and they all were able to say you know I was ordered. Operation is us which was an always. Screw this up but it's like please excuse my dear aunt sally you nailed it see. That's the first time I've ever heard you get it right so but it's the same thing so I wanted to give the context so that everybody understood. Why is this so powerful finances finances is the same as the way you do order of operations with math? You need to do it in the right order so you actually make your system as efficient as

Everything You Need to Know About Hamburgers
"Come from Hamburg Germany? Well, not so much ground, beef shaped patties did originated Hamburg, but it was called the Hamburg steak and it came without a bun after that your guesses as good as anyone else's as to how hamburgers came into being, there's credible evidence that the Hamburg steak may have been served on a slice of bread there also reports of such thing being served around the same time in Boston in Chicago, there at least four other claims of where and win the hamburger was created. Now, the original was called Hamburg steak, we need to address the issue of steak burgers, those came about in about nineteen twenty and in the nineteen thirties, the steak burger debuted at stake in shakes first location in normal, Illinois. The burger was made up from strip from the T bone steak and sirloin. Most of us know hamburgers because of the Thura of fast food restaurants. That populate ways by the way, the industry doesn't. Like the term fast food it prefers quick service restaurants. I'm not sure who they think they're fooling. But there you are. But back to hamburgers worldwide informal eating out is about a one trillion dollar industry of which seventy five percent is fast food of that seventy five percent. Mcdonald's claims eleven percent that works out to about seventy five hamburgers sold every second in India, cow, meat does a Golder well, with a large portion of the population so you can walk into a McDonalds in India and get the McCurry pan a bread bowl filled with chicken curry in France. You can get a croak Magoo kind of like a croak, Madame around seventy one percent of all beef sold in America's for burgers. And there are an estimated fifty thousand burger joints in the US. The semi you want to make great burgers at home. There's a host of advice on how to do it a great burger starts with great meat. And the recommendation is for eighty percent meat to twenty percent fat go at any leaner than that. And the burger just won't hold together when it comes to seasonings simply salt and pepper seems to be the favourite, soap you should probably stick with that. There are different ways you could make a petty, mostly you grab a chunk of hamburger and flatten it, but don't pack too tightly or it'll be tough. Once you've made the Patty's some advise that you pop them in the fridge for at least fifteen minutes or so, to firm them up. Then there's the question of the dimple, the thinking is that if you use your thumb to press down in the center of the burger creating a dimple than the burger won't rise so much that you can't put all the other stuff on top. When it's time to cook, get a pan. Scorching hot cast iron seems to be the favourite, then dropped the patties into it, then leave them alone. Don't. Press on them. Don't look underneath just give them time to Brown and get a nice crust. When you've got that flipped him over and cook them to your desired level of done this. Now, if you wanna diner hamburger, you should forget nearly everything I just told you when you're ready to make your burgers, roll the meat into little balls drop those into your scorching hot Skillet with butter and garlic than press them down with your spatula, get a really solid crust on them and flip them over regardless of the method. If you wanna cheeseburger, and who wouldn't put the cheese on when you flip the burger, then covered with the stainless steel bowl trap to heat. The cheese will go all melting. So now when it comes to hamburgers, you're a smart cookie.

So all the way back down right back now. Yeah. So. Yeah. Okay. Well, this is lovely. So I was here for a little while. I was petrified for the rest of the trip. I drove around like iris on the roads. I was. Yeah. I was like naming I look Mr. Magoo hear I'm in a crossover. I have a nice big car didn't help girl didn't help dawn. What happened to you? I decided to test it out, you know, like whenever you pull away from the driveway. And then you're like, okay. Oh, this is pretty bad. And then an intersection I was going too fast. And I did a one eighty. I did. I ended up in the opposite direction. It was like one of those. Okay. You know, you're drifting. There's nobody coming for a while. You're like all right.

I didn't even need to hit the gas or anything. Right down. I went. That was very easy to down today. But then walking into the building too. Oh. The security guard is very nervous. He goes, I keep calling building maintenance because I don't want someone to slip and fall. No, it's bad bottom line. Learn from us. Take our warnings.

I thought that movie was very good. Not not a problem, but not my very favorite Christmas movie, which I think is an animated movie, and it's called Mr. Magoo Christmas. Carol. I love that. I think it's my very favorite and even the music in that because it was it was so funny. It's a play within a play, and it's a musical. And it's animated. It's mr. Right. And it's being performed in front of a live audience. Alive cartoon audience. And you know, the the the composer lyricist for that with the same composer lyricist music and lurks for funny girl is that I did not know that yellow Julie Stein. And a one of the things I love about that that piece is that it's like a fifty minute with without commercials. Fifty fifty two minute musical. And it's a it's a complete full fledged musical that they manage to. I don't wanna say cram into that running time. But it's it's it's brilliantly constructed. I get that's what I want to say in the tunes are beautiful. The songs are good and wonderful. I remember them to this day. And I think the last time I thought I was a fairly young kid. And I just you know, I think about it every once in a while I think about some of those tunes, and I just belt them out because they were such good. And all of them were different. All the song. Didn't it's not like they all sounded alike were true to whatever was happening and the character they came. All of them came out of character. They all flowed within within the book of the peace, and yeah, it's just are typically, it's it's an amazing. I'm amazing thing. It really was. Yeah. I I really love it. I cannot even add to your you. And I have to say. Mr. Magoo as a fine actor. He is you know, I don't know if it was I was talking to John Rothman once we were talking about this. And I don't know if you remember this. I remember as a child this was on it was on. It was a program that was on Sunday afternoons, and it I can't remember the name of the series. But it was Mr. Magoo every week. It was Mr. Magoo playing a different famous literary carrot. Oh, no. I don't remember that. I remember the the little cartoon show where he drove in that little car that are. I didn't know that he played a different veterinary care. He played gun. Good. Then he played all these all these different characters. And and that was. Mr. Magoo was amazing. And he performed these roles in the character of Mr. Magoo, and they were all really, believable and credible. And just amazing. And I remember as a child watching that show, and it making me go to the library to get books about the that were being portrayed in that. So that good. I mean, that's when you know, they've done a great job when they when they cause you to do something positive like that to learn more. I love that that that makes me very very happy. So what's your very favorite holiday movie? My very very. Can't say the same one. You have to pick a different one. I should have. I should have a ready answer for that. But I'm just going to say the first one that comes to mind, that's obvious. Anybody to listen to always go on that? I really love musicals musical version of a Christmas. Carol Charles Dickens called Scrooge that came out in nineteen seventy with Albert Finney as screwed yet. He plays. He plays the older Scrooge in the younger Scrooge to yes. And yeah. Alec Guinness plays Marley's ghost, and it's just a rollicking fun beautifully mounted. Have to bring that one out again because I remember seeing it and I remember loving it. But I don't remember it specifically. So I'm going to have to get it out. And listen to you know, it's funny when it first came out, I thought it was a little bloated. And and I was kind of critical of it. But over the years, I kept returning to it. And I love it. I try to watch it every every Christmas season. I miss this year this year didn't even seem way Christmas. It went by so fast. It's one that I keep going back to I love the score. Leslie, Bricusse did the music and lyrics, and I think he wrote the screenplay to which is an adaptation of Charles Dickens Christmas. Carol. It's a big hit song from that was. Thank you very much as it go. I'm not gonna sing come on. When we come back from the break, we should come back from the break with that song. It's called. Thank you very much. Karen, doesn't like to be told what to play. I'm sorry. You can play whatever you want. What's it called you very much? Thank you very much. It's from Scrooge. It's from Scrooge. And it's once you hear the tune you can't get it out of your head. It's one of those ear worms. It's like it was small world. Oh god. It can't be that bad. Listen, let's get a phone call here. This is Evan. He's calling from Santa Rosa Evan. Hi. Welcome to KTAR, you're on with Tim Sika, Pat, Thurston. Go ahead. I'm calling because every time I ever hear talk show host mentioned that every Christmas. We almost always mentioned Christmas story. And it's a good movie. Don't get me wrong. I like it, but jingle all the way was Arnold Schwarzenegger's totally under appreciated. It may be the funniest person you ever. An incidentally funnier than Christmas story. Do you ever seen jingle all the way with all sorts nigger? I don't think Tim has. Timbo funny. It is it's very very funny. It's very light. It's very seasonal. Yeah. What else? I mean. Elf is very funny health is good too. But it's not as good as jingle all the way. I do what about bad Santa well bad Santa's filthy. That's true. I mean, it's a nasty movie. And that's why it's so funny because you have this like drunk profane Santa Claus. I mean, it's like, yeah. That's thornton. Yeah. I don't think I saw jingle all the way Evan. So you have inspired me. And I'm putting that on my list. So that I can see it. I'm so glad you brought that up and don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that a Christmas story is one of my favorites. I'm just saying I finally watched it, and it was good. It was really good. It wasn't great. But it was really good. Hey, Tim before we go back to more of my nonsense. Let's talk about on the basis of sex on the basis upset what would I mean? What do you want to talk about on the basis of that a new movie? Yes. It is. You're trying to trick me. It is. It's it's a movie about Ruth, Bader Ginsburg. It's about her early life. And it's good. It's not to be confused with our BG, right? Which is the documentary about about supreme court Justice Ginsburg. This is a movie a narrative featured selected by Mimi Leder. It starts Felicity Jones as a young Ruth Ginsburg and Armie hammer as her husband, and the movie focuses on nineteen seventy case that she argued in court with her husband about sex discrimination. Only it involved a man, right? And this is another one of those movies. I kinda hate to rag on and I'm sort of tempted to because a lot of it in in terms of its style. And it's like safe kinda mainstreaming approaches kind of pedestrian, but the story of a young Ruth Ginsburg of a lawyer in the fifties in the United States, and what she went through the sexism. She endured the fight she had the wage personally to even practice law. Nobody would hire this woman, even though she was number one in her Harvard Law School group, and she was a hell of a lot. Smarter than all the men that she had to deal with the movie goes into her amazing work in in striking down all these discriminatory laws based on gender and all of that makes this movie worth seeing and celebrating. I think particularly I think young girls would absolutely love this movie. This woman was amazing is still as everybody knows that already. But she is. I mean, she's truly she's the notorious RPG, and and it is a people really now are appreciating here. But look how long it took. I mean, really, and what I like about this movie is that it focuses on her her early life and her relationship with her husband who had a cancer scare early in their marriage. And so what's interesting, and I didn't know what she did in order for her husband to stay in the law game. She attended classes for him. So she was not only doing her own work in trying to get her law degree. She was doing his work for him while he was recuperating. And then she would go home at night. And they'd go over all these briefs and stuff. She's I mean, and I love RGB our BG. I mean, the the documentary I love the fact that this focused on her her her early career because very little of that I knew about in except in a general way, and the acting is very good. I you know, I when I watched this movie I thought man, I wish I had young daughters. I would just, you know, take them to see this. And let them see many times. I guess I have been told because I'm gonna take my daughters to it. All right. Hang on, Tim. I gotta take a little break here. And I see we may have other phone calls coming in at eighty eighty eight ten. I'm Pat Thurston. Tim Sika is my guest is website is celluloiddreams dot net. And you're listening to GO Pat.

Actually, you copy me, but you send them to sheriff departments around the country, the FBI, and the FBI missing people primarily tell me what they are.

"G Y. Glenn beck. Preface this next story with I already don't understand the Japanese people. Okay. I just don't I don't get their love for robots. Don't get there. You know, fear of giant dinosaurs coming out dinosaur moths. Yes, I their whole sexual thing with robots and not real people is just weird. So I don't understand that. But that is nothing compared to this heart warming story Magoo me was a baby when her parents separated and her father disappeared from her life, but years later, her mother told her she told her mother that she wanted to reconnect with her dad Magoo Gooby began to see yomata regularly. She thinks yomata is her father, and that you Mata is his real name. But this is ally. Mom says ever since she was a little kid. She'd asked me where dad was all. She knew that he had gone soon after she was born. So she blamed herself for years, it didn't appear to be a problem. But when Magoo me was about ten asako noticed a change in her daughter's behavior. She didn't talk to me, and she became very quiet and withdrawn it took a while, however to find out about the bullying asako discovered the Mgumia was not only blaming herself for her. Parents break-up her classmates were also ostracizing her because she didn't have a dad children of single parents often stigmatized in Japan. Eventually she became so unhappy that she refused to go to school. She's my only child Sokha said was breaking my heart to see her. So sad. She tried to get the teachers at the school to help. But then when failing one after another another idea came to mind, all I could think about is what if I could. Find a man who is nice and kind an ideal father someone who would make her feel better. She heard about a relative rental agency that would send an actor to play a guest at a wedding or go on a date. They are well established in Japan. Okay. I don't think that's a relative rental agency. I think that's an escort service. That's like the real idea of an escort service now in America. It's usually, but doesn't see I I would bet in Japan. It doesn't it's probably just legitimately. You're renting a relative. That's nice to you at family dinners could be I mean, they have this version of sex. Maybe. So she contacted one of these actors and asked if they could or one of these acting agencies and ask if they could provide a fake dad after auditioning five hopefuls she settled on a man called takashumia. He or something I found it have found him easy to talk to who was very kind. And sweet. So I just followed my instincts. Well, he runs the global or the rental agency with about twenty staff and more than a thousand. Freelancers men and women of different ages and background who can cater to almost any situation taking on fake names personalities and roles they often have to lie, but they're very strict about not breaking the law as an actor himself. He's played boyfriends businessmen friends fathers. He's been a bridegroom at five fake, weddings. He prepared. Let me say that one. Again, he's been a bridegroom at five fake. Weddings, fake bridegroom add a fake wedding. Is he a real Bryce as within a bride's groom at five fake wedding. So he's a real bridegroom at a fake wedding. How does that work? Oh, I think he's more of fake bridegroom rides groom at a real wedding. But that's the way they were that I think is the opposite. They're fake weddings a fake wedding. But a real bridegroom. No, I think he's playing a bride's groom at a fake wedding. I don't know what a fake when I read that it just kind of spilled out of my mouth and then. Appears dropped in. And I'm like, wait a minute. What's a fake wedding? Okay. Again, I cannot explain this story or the Japanese people he prepares for his roles. He confesses by watching Hollywood movies like little miss sunshine. The Oscar winning film about a dysfunctional family bonding on a road trip. That's a classic by the way and putting and the descendants in which George Clooney plays and indifferent parent who suddenly has to embrace fatherhood after a family tragedy. I studied these films, and I memorized phrases in lines. I take notes on how different family members, interact and communicate and what it takes to be a certain kind of father or husband, and they helped me understand different family dynamics in relationships. Asako met him several times to talk about the kind of father. She wanted him to play to her daughter. My requests were very simple firstly. I just wanted to say how sorry he was. He couldn't be in Montgomery's life until then Secondly, I wanted him to listen to whatever she wanted to tell him asako, then told Megumi that her father had remarried and now had a new family. But he had recently been back in touch because he wanted to see them again, he was working. She said as an actor Magoo was shocked, but eventually agreed to meet him. And so nearly ten years ago. To shock. Just Schalke became yomata. Magoo means father his longest running and perhaps most ethically dubious role today this shock. He still remembers their first meeting was very complex emotion that he was there. She asked me why I hadn't come to see her before. And I felt her resentment as yomata he began seeing Magoo me and her mother a couple of times a month joining them on days out trips to the movies visiting for birthdays and asako said didn't take long to see real change inter daughter after a Magoo became much, happier and much more outgoing. She loved to talk. She was lively she wanted to go back to school. And that's what I thought. This is all worth it. One particular occasion, sticks out in a sock goes mine when she and yomata where it Magoo me's school parents day, we were standing in the back of the classroom. She saw us together and kept on turning around to look at us. She had the biggest smile on her face, and that made me really happy. Now, the services are cheap every time asako hires him to play Amata she pays about ten thousand yen. That's about ninety dollars, and although she earns a decent salary. She has to make savings elsewhere to afford it. But she remembers how unhappy her daughter once was and she thinks it's money. Well spent. The fake father. Also sees a difference gradually. She's become happier. And more confident I used to meet with her used to meet her with asako the three of us together. But one day she said I want to go out with my dad, just the two of us. So I took her.
