"Well, since we mentioned these guys earlier, we'd need to shout out Miguel Martinez and Jesus Cordoba who were from the Ben mariachi Mexico de Pepe and they were from the 1950s and those are the two guys who worked out how to use two trumpets together. And it sounds like you just played the same thing at the same time. And same melody, but that wasn't exactly what they did. They mixed it up and I think they played in harmony. And all of a sudden, two trumpets were a thing. Yeah. There's another group mariachi Los camperos that was founded by naughty Kano. And he really kind of like whipped this existing band into shape. And got them into Carnegie Hall in 1964. They were the first mariachi group to perform there. They opened their own restaurant, la Fonda de Los camperos in LA, and that explains why Vincente Rodriguez was in is basically inter Mexican restaurant where I guess just a restaurant in the two videos I've seen of his. So that became kind of like a thing. Like you would have your own home base where you could perform every every night of the week if you wanted to and also probably attract more business. Plus you're making that restaurant money on the side too. Yeah, and you know, highly recommend if you go to Los Angeles, you want to do something fun one night. There are quite a few restaurants there that have not the roaming the tables, mariachi, but the full 12 to 14 symphonic on a stage performance scene and it is a lot of fun to go to these places and get some great food and margaritas and listen to these performances. So look it up. It's online. I don't have any. The one I went to texted my friend, but he never answered, so I can't remember the name of it. I'll tell you another place to get all that same experience as Epcot center. Are you talking about mariachi cobra? Yeah, they've been the house Epcot Mexico pavilion mariachi band since 1982. Not a bad gig. That's a pretty good streak.

"Spray paint can lid. Very nice. Everybody. Very nice. All right, so now we are in the mid 20th century. And Mexican cinema is all of a sudden finding its way into theaters all over the world. And that means Mexican music is going to be introduced in more places all over the world, which includes mariachi. And it, depending on where you are in the world, it might have taken hold more than others. And this is I think this is a really cool thing when something from one disparate culture makes its way to another place and for some like hasselhoff in Germany. All of a sudden that place really loves this thing. And that happened in Yugoslavia, one of the reasons is at the time political leaders there didn't want a lot of Soviet music. They didn't want a lot of American music, and they saw this Mexican music is neutral politically. So it was a little more not encouraged, I guess, but not shunned. And all of a sudden, there were some parallels being drawn between the revolutionary traditions in both of those countries. And even today, in places like Serbia and Croatia, there are mariachi bands that play. Yeah, and this wasn't like a fringe thing like mariachi from what I can tell. There's a really interesting roads and kingdoms article that Livia dug up. That basically says like mariachi was as big as any music in Yugoslavia in like this. I'm guessing 50 60s and 70s is the impression that I had. Have you ever heard yugoslavian music? I listened to a little bit of why I listened to a little bit of the mariachi. That's the other thing too. It doesn't matter if it's a Serb playing, mariachi, a Japanese band playing mariachi, or somebody from Texas playing mariachi. It is the same music. It's pretty cool. Yeah, I think honoring that tradition like no one wants to put a spin on something that is so much just what it is. I looked. There are Japanese mariachi, one called mariachi samurai. It's been around for 20 plus years. There is a confirmed mariachi band in China as we will see there in the big festival happening this year. There is one from Sweden that's showing up. So it definitely like took hold in different parts of the world in the 20th century. Yeah, for sure. So chuck, I feel like we should talk about some notable mariachi. Yeah, and we should also point out that when we say mariachi that can be a band that can be an adjective describing the music or it can be as in the case of the great Robert Rodriguez film el mariachi, it can be a single individual is a mariachi. I still never saw it. I've only seen desperado and I've seen that like 50 times, but I never moved on to el mariachi. Well, move back. It was the first one. And then desperado was kind of a remake, but kind of not. Like evil dead and evil dead two. Yeah, very much, yeah, in a lot of ways. You should check out mariachi. It's the one he made for like $8000 or whatever. I'll check it out. I'll check it out. I'm pressured me.

"1960s acoustic guitar protest song, which is exactly what it was, but it was, you know, part of the united farm workers union strike. And the larger chicano movement too. A big respect box, again, was checked in the 80s when Linda Ronstadt came out with her album, Damien padre. And this was a very big deal. I don't know if you remember this at the time, but it was Linda Ronstadt was a huge star and I can't recommend the documentary about her enough. It's called the sound of my voice. One of the great singers of all time in any genre is Linda Ronstadt. And she has Mexican heritage and not many people know this, because she's very fair skinned. Her name is Ron stat, is German. But that's why she made that album and she did interviews at the time in the documentary talks a lot about her Mexican heritage. And I think she's part German too, and like you were talking about the German influence in Mexico. It was a big melting pot. And she was a part of that melting pot. I think her either father or grandfather was Mexican. And so she came out with this album, and it was huge. It went double platinum. And this was in the mid late 1980s, and it gave a huge boost to the mariachi music. Yeah, and she was playing with some legit mariachi bands. I think she hosted basically three of them on her album. She played with one of them mariachi Vargas on Saturday Night Live. Yeah, I mean, it was a giant enormous thing. I don't remember when it happened, but I can just imagine America being like, wait, what? And then listen, that was for sure being like, oh, this is really good. But that also explains a long-standing mystery that I never understood before, which is why on the mister plow episode of The Simpsons. When Barney is hanging out with Linda Ronstadt, she tries to adapt mister plow song into Spanish. Really? Yeah, or she's like, that's funny. Senior plow, noise, macho soda, minty, umberto, which means oh my God. Mister plow is not manly, only a drunk. And it lasts like two, three seconds, but no idea. Oh man. That was so random. God, don't you love that when a Simpsons joke hits 20 years later? Exactly 30 years actually, the episode came out in 92. That is crazy. Yeah. All right. Well, let's take another break. I'm going to go get my spray paint cant lid. That's really tough to say, isn't it? It really is. I'd stumble, you say it. Spray paint can lit. I've been practicing in my head 'cause I knew this moment when we come. I've been stumbling over the whole time, so I'm going to keep practicing saying that. And we'll be right back.

"I don't know. Is there a limit? I don't think so, only in your mind. Oh, wow. Hold on. Yeah, but there are singers that have backing mariachi bands, but they're in a mariachi band. There is typically not what's called a lead singer. Someone may take a lead on the song, but it's usually a lot of people singing at once. Yeah, it's like Chicago, basically everybody can sing, right? And they take turns. And Robert lamb. You'll actually see a guy stop playing his trumpet and move to the front and start singing on a new song. That's just kind of how laid back it is. One of the other cool things about mariachi too is if you watch, like if you watch the violinists, they'll be like three or four of them just standing there potentially. And they'll all start to bring their bow to their instrument. At different times, it's not this precision timing. And because there's multiple instruments, one can come in like, you know, a half measure late or something like that. And it makes no difference. You can't hear it in the first place, but it's just like, it's not meant to be this intensely perfect. Precise music. And that's actually seen in the way that it's passed along. Like you don't, you can now, as if I think the 60s, you can go to schools. Sometimes public schools like elementary and middle and high schools, but there are some college curriculum that teach you mariachi. But traditionally, it was passed down just by practicing. It wasn't written down. It was like, here's how you play a C elito lindo, you know? And you would pick that up or else you'd go watch your favorite mariachi band in the town Plaza and basically be a groupie long enough that they'd let you start playing with them. That kind of thing. That was coco. Did you ever see coco? I did not, no. One of the best movies animated films. It's just fantastic. Definitely the best looking animated film I've ever seen. Wow. But that was the kid in coco was like a little mariachi groupie and would just like and his parents didn't want him hanging around. Like all of this stuff is kind of spot on. Yeah. Really good movie though. And great music. But mariachi finally would make its way to the United States long before coco in the 1940s in Los Angeles, obviously has always had a strong proud Mexican American community there. And then up through the 1960s, which during the zoot suit episode, we talked a lot about the chicano movement in the 60s. Where Mexican immigrant communities all of a sudden kind of stood up for themselves and organized and it was very much akin to the black power movement and they adopted a lot of mariachi songs as kind of part of their movement. Yeah, and some they repurposed there's a famous song called de caloris. That talks about how beautiful the landscape is in spring. And they basically repurpose it to be more of a metaphor for how, you know, the beauty of different people of color, you know? Other ones were actually written. There's a song called el Pickett sign. Did you listen to it? I did. And it's a good song. It doesn't sound very mariachi.

"It was an indigenous Cora word, too. So hats off to them as well. There's another, there's one more that I'm like, I don't know about this one, but they're like, no, the Chi is from the core language, but the Maria refers to the virgin Mary and that these were religious songs at first. I didn't see anything about these being particularly religious at any point in time, did you? Not really. I mean, I'm sure they're religious mariachi songs, but most of the stuff I've seen is about working on the farm or these love ballads and stuff like that. Yeah. Or just getting crunk. Getting down. So like I said, the hacienda system, I don't believe it actually ended, but I think it was very much disrupted during and right after the revolution. And as a result, there was a lot of people who were displaced as workers, including mariachi musicians who no longer had like a regular gig on the local hacienda. And so whenever there's a disruption in the countryside, those people tend to make it towards city centers to see if there's work or other ways to support themselves. There's a big influx of people to Mexico City around the 19 teens and 20s. And a lot of them were mariachi musicians, and they brought their different traditions with them because depending on what state you're talking about, each state has its own kind of musical mariachi tradition. And in that era in Mexico City is when they first started to really kind of blend together. Yeah, I think I love this kind of thing where whether it's food or musical styles when different people of different cultures, all of a sudden you're living among each other and start sharing opinions and ideas. That's just, I don't know, I think the best stuff in history is created that way. And that's what happened there. And they brought their music together. This is when band sizes grew. It was not necessarily like a Quartet like it had been all of a sudden you could see mariachi in the 12 people playing in a band. Big time game changer. This is when horns came into the mix. And basically, this was what 19 teens, you said? Yeah. In 20s, maybe? Yeah, mariachi would never be the same after the introduction of those trumpets. No, for sure. And apparently in pretty short order, they figured out how to do more than one trumpet as we'll see. There's actually one band that was responsible for that. But one of the other things they started doing too was wearing charros. Those cowboy outfits, the very slick cowboy outfits with like the short waistcoat and the tight pants and the ankle length boots and a wide bow tie in a big sombrero. That emerged from this area as well too, where all of a sudden these guys were in the big city, wearing peasant garb with straw hats, this was probably a little gauche all of a sudden. And they were making pretty good money. So you could outfit like a dozen mariachi musicians and matching outfits. And you know, probably attract even more money because people would want to hire you because you had that kind of thing going on. And it became a tradition pretty quick. Can I admit something? Yeah. If it were not for being accused of cultural appropriation, I would wear chatto clothing at every fancy event I ever went to. So I think it's so cool looking. I love it. And I think I might just have to settle for a nudie suit. You know what those are? A birthday? No, you probably do. There was a tailor and he was a lot of things.

It's technically a play with music. It's not technically a musical, but there's a ton. A beautiful music, mariachi music and singing. And, uh, it's a story about a young woman in the 19 seventies. Who you know whose mother is suffering from dementia is starting to really Um, slip away from dementia, and she finds she and her cousin find an old 45 that they put on 45 record first, those who may not remember what those are and will be will be explaining to any of you who are under 30 years old. What a record is really what a record let alone of 45 right Some hipsters, no advice finalist, but the younger ones don't even know what a record is. Exactly on a closing play, even if you will. Wow, closing play. Wow! Yeah, the 19 seventies and they song they put this song on it all of her mother just Comes to life and and start singing along with it, and and her father, who was a mariachi musician who's a little down on his luck comes in and just Gets furious and breaks the record. And, uh and so they decide to, um she and her cousin decided to put together a mariachi group and all female mariachi group too. To learn this song to recreate this song because it It brought her mother back, You know? And so they go around town, and they recruit some other women to join this group. And of course, they have to learn to play the instruments because they don't play instruments, and it's just a really beautiful, heartwarming. I mean, it's a tear jerker. I will tell you that, but it's also at the same time so heartwarming and so uplifting. And in the music is just on believable. It's just fantastic. About hour and 35 minutes long, no intermission. And, uh, kind of stunning if I may say so myself, I think I'm tearing up just hearing you describe it. I think I think that any of us who have been through The Alzheimer's battle I did recently with both my brother and my mother. My mother. My mother actually passed away one year ago this week. Oh, my gosh, maybe the the one year anniversary, So I'm sure I'm going to be a mess this coming Wednesday on that day, but but you know, during during her illness during the course of her illness with dementia and Alzheimer's, as the Disease progressed and I watched my mother who is a very independent spirited Uh, amazing woman of you know, the greatest generation who you know, could do anything. This generation could do anything you know, began to, uh deteriorate. Uh, you know, it was heartbreaking until I was goofing around, you know, sitting and visiting with her and just goofing around with my phone, and I accidentally started the music on my phone. And it was like just as you say, A light bulb went off when this music started, and I was talking with somebody who knew more about Alzheimer's. And I did and said, Oh, yeah, the The music doesn't go away. They still respond to the music. So I downloaded some some songs that I you know that she always sang that. I knew that she always loved that. Put them on my phone. And the next time I visited, I played Tony Bennett. She loved Tony Bennett. I played Tony Bennett and it was like it was like a person who had been asleep. Inside of this 97 year old body had come to life. It was amazing. So, uh, so I'm relating to your show this way, And I'm sure anyone else who has been through, you know, being an Alzheimer's caretaker. Uh, yeah. Also can completely relate to this experience of, uh, having a loved one respond to music. And to put together the tradition of mariachi band and you know that music that is so culturally meaningful at the same time. Has to be like, just, uh, I'm going to bring. I think I may bring to block boxes of Kleenex. Well, you better you better. Good job. I mean, I'm already a mess, and I haven't seen this shit. No, I'm seriously I'm tearing up just hearing you talk about it because I went through the same thing with my mom, you know, and and it's in your right. I mean, who among you know who of us have not in some way been touched. You know, by this terribly cruel disease, um you know, and, uh And just to hear that that was true for your mom to the music, you know, very massive. Brought her back. That's amazing how you better bring two boxes. Yeah, I think so. At the same time, I'm guaranteeing you that at the end, you'll have the biggest smile on your face. It's just It's really the perfect perfect play for us to come back to the theater with because it's so cathartic. It's so so beautiful and at the same time just makes you You know, walk out the door and go. I can. I can't go on. I can survive. And I to, um can can create something new because that's what these women are doing, right? I mean, in the 19 seventies in in the United States, at least female mariachis were unheard of, just like You know, they just wasn't a thing because mariachi was something that was handed down, Father to son and male oriented. Sure. Yeah, Yeah, absolutely..

"Had mariachi performances. And, of course, everything came with a side of Fritos. It was believed that the Casa de Fritos at Disneyland was the birthplace. Of the Dorito, another wildly popular Friedel, a product that has been long attributed to a Frito They employee named ARJ West. However, that origin story has also been contested. Gustavo Arellano, the columnist at the L. A times who we heard from in the intro, is also the author of the book Taco USA. How Mexican Food Conquered America. While doing research for his book, Gustavo uncovered the true origin of Doritos. When I was doing my story about my book, Arch West executive with Frida Lay passed away and you see all these obituaries you know, Los Angeles Times included NPR, saying the arch Wes was a man who invented Doritos where I'm like. Let me investigate this a little bit, and I turned out that it wasn't Arch West. It was actually the Morales family of Anaheim, who are pioneers in their own way in Southern California with a brand of tamales called Excellency, Tamales. They told me the story that gave documents to me. I confirmed the story with Khalida Doolin, who's the daughter of Elmer Doolin. But even Gustavo didn't think of investigating. Richard Story was just so again. It was such a feel good story. I'm like, I don't need to confirm it. It really was just bad reporting on my part. I don't know if I would have discovered the way Sam Sam Dean, my colleague did discovered the whole cheese mayor, but I should have asked questions. Everything else I ask questions for flaming hot Cheetos. I didn't And continuing with our journey into the interesting history of the Frito Lay company in the late 19 sixties, they create the freedom Bandido. Hello, Senior. I am the Frito Bandito.

Oscars Best Picture Contenders Required to Meet Diversity Standards

"Since we're gonna talk about since we're going to talk about movies, this movie debuted 40 years ago. I don't not sure never won any Oscars. We can talk about a different kind of odds. And that is the odds that will be in your favor when you exhibit Perhaps the greatest comedy motion picture of all time. This is going to make it look like Raiders of the Lost Ark. This is gonna be the kind of thing that your Children because they did. I could look up to you now. I never could before. I mean, we made a lot of cheap movies for you guys that made a lot of money. But now we have spent a little more than we're supposed to. Columbia Pictures has spared no expense to make this fine science fiction comedy So they're talking about is that's Dan Ackroyd and Bill Murray talking about ghost workers that they put that out to theaters to convince them to show the movie it was. It was something they set out to particularly independent theaters saying, Hey, this is Ah, a little something you might want to consider it your little Arthouse cinema. Now you had one guy was one of the Ghostbusters was a black guy. So there okay. Winston was black. And and then one day I was Jewish. I believe Well, Rick Moranis was in the movies, but I don't think I guess later on. He was kind of an ancillary ghostbuster, the Reynolds Jewish Council's a minority. For some reason. Reason this is important is and I'm reading for The Times. New Oscar standards require best picture contenders must be inclusive to compete if you wanna win. The Oscar for best picture, and I Do You have tohave you meet need to meet certain quotas to do it, Which is the way all great art is made. Certainly we all know Novels, songs movies television shows on the best artist made with quotas. So they came up with this a couple of months ago. This is AH attempt to be more divers to be eligible for best picture of film must meet at least two standards on across four categories of diversity on screen representation. Themes and narratives. So the theme of the movie has to be inclusive of a variety of groups. And it's under representative groups, including women, People of color LGBTQ, plus people and those with cognitive or physical disabilities. You have to touch on at least some of those not only in the cast and they're talking about the main cast. Um I'll read from what it says in The New York Times those standards record, one of the least one of the lead actors were significant supporting actors is from unrepresented, underrepresented racial or ethnic group. One of the lead actors are significant supporting actor. So in that group of people that the movie is all about, you can't have if it's World War, one movie a bunch of white guys, No. No. You gotta have. I don't know, eh? A black guy funded through the trench er. At least Marriott cheap and at least 30 books. They've sent a mariachi band with clearly Mexican people to entertain the troops. Shut them up, or we're going to be bombed by the Germans. Then the mariachis district and you never see them again. Ugo. There's your Oscar bait. Joe Getty Hollywood Quota consultant from No problem I got this. You gotta touch in coming of age story sitting in Norwegian filming Fishing Village, a 16 year old boy and girl and love trying to confront their Nazi past. Let's see. Let's have the Globetrotters come to town and play an exhibition game And on one of the dates they go See the Globetrotters check. $100,000 at least 30% of all actors in secondary in minor roles air from certain underrepresented groups and the main Jenny called the Globetrotters again, and the main storyline, theme or narrative of the movie has to be centred on an under representative group to qualify for a best picture Oscar nomination, And they went through the list of a bunch of movies that might not have made it that have one. You know lots of Oscars, including 1917, the World War. In film or the Irishman that came out last year and was a piece of crap, But in very was a great movie. It was bad, but it was long. I just I just Go and find this. Absolutely amazing. Yeah, on this is from liberals. People who think art is important people who send their kids to expensive colleges to get our degrees. They want to have constraints on art. The Liberals do? Yeah. Yeah, quotas. Good luck with that. My loathing of Hollywood. Well, it could get a little more intense as it turns out, but just If if if it didn't Indicate what James Lindsay has been talking about that this is coming on hard in society as a whole. I could just roll my eyes and move on said Good, Eat yourselves. You're cannibalizing yourselves, And I think it's hilarious. But it does mean that that sort of racialist thinking where everything is broken down to your identity group. You could only get a job if you're this or you can only be fired. If you're not that, or You know, you can only move into a neighborhood. We have quotas and neighborhoods quotas that everything that's dangerous. Is there any chance that any of the older liberals because always talking about the liberals over 50 seem to have a different view of these things? Like a Rob Reiner makes a movie with like what you're talking about here, man. Just those Like, really stick his thumb in the eye of the O R. You got something, you know, three hour long Goodfellow State movie, and then then you turns out Henry Hill's wife, at the end of it says Not only am I leaving you but I'm a lesbian check.

Lego Super Mario is the break from reality we need

"Super Mario. Lego P- on paper. These two properties are perfect together, but as a real life. Super Mario make it worth your time? I'm ready Chang and this is your daily charge. With me, is senior editor at large and amateur magician Scott Stein Hey Scott Hey, Roger. Get deductive virtually. Intendo made some ways back in March when they tease this new set, and it seems like it's a match made in heaven, but in Fort Listeners. Can you break down? What Lego Super Mario actually looks like, and it's different from the standard Lego set sure so I've looked at Lega. ROADWORK sets before like lego boost, which are wines that have real electronic pieces in there in sensors and can be pretty complicated, but have a lot of rewards. This is kind of like a step down idea. If, you've also played games like super. Mario Maker for the switch. which where you make your own levels, this is a brick sat where you're building a couple of preset courses that are basically easy to construct lego bricks for ages about six or seven up, and there is a core lego Mario figure that runs on batteries that has a sensor on the bottom, and even a little screen and makes noises that can bob on coded bricks that do various things, so there's a start and an end, and there's a time challenge, and you basically have to collect as many coins before the time runs out by Bopping, doing these little physical or block bopping things, can you? Can you give me an example of what some of those noises are? What does Mariachi say sure I've actually got the Lego? Mario figure with me here so if I turn on, you can hear. He says Lego Mario time when he starts if you shake him. He's a little accelerometer. So he does things when you jump or were you tap on the table when he? When turn off as to see later. He sinks with your with your with your screen. Or android the idea there is that there's not you don't need to have the phone or tablet near by, but you do need it to set it up. It's got the instructions at so they connected toy. which is what Lego's robotics kits are like to the instructions? Are there and when you get scores? You can upload it to the APP to keep track of You know your creations, but you could also just once you set it up. Put that stuff away and just play with it with the figure and the pieces. Pieces like in your living room. What do you think Nintendo? lego opted to do something so different because this is obviously a lot more interactive than say your standard Harry Potter or star. Wars set right. Yeah, WE'LL LECCO saying. This is a four year collaboration along with some of the team at Nintendo that worked on Super Mario. Maker so was A. it was a pretty dedicated thing. Nintendo's made its own AMOEBA figures for years with a dabbled in that Nintendo has that partnership with universal for their for their theme park. There been other things, but I think for Lego Nintendo. You're right. It does make a lot of sense. It almost feels like something that could have happened already because Lego has done things that are kind of Nintendo like an antenna was done things like Lambeau that have folding cardboard that are kind of Lego like so. They feel very good together the one thing. I'm curious about is how much more the gaming can evolve what I noticed testing. This with my kids said it's very open ended. You have the instructions in Classic Lego style. They just Kinda. Let you figure out the rest in. There's not too much arching direction instruction and I would have liked a little more of that yet. Your video did feel very kind of free form. Like how did you play with it or more and more importantly? How did your kids play with it? Well, they love putting it together then we had the zoom with the head of Design Jonathan Beneath. which is this thing that Lego at? This remote zoom to basically just set up some timed a time challenge with of course we built, but you know you can kind of cheat. You know you basically just take all the coded pieces in just keep popping them over and over, and then hit the end piece, and then see what score you get and a lot of the scoring, because it's almost like a fitness tracker, you have to keep moving it and shaking. It is a little bit random. One of my kids got upset. That score wasn't as is. He thought it would be This is why I think you kind of have to just relax into it but I. I think it could be a little frustrating if you're trying to play like a board game, I feel like the APP should have some ideas Super Mario maker on on the switch has great ideas for creating design, and they have all these instructional sets, plus you could just play around or check out what other people made. This is lacking that by think intentionally, but just to let parents know that like I think it's toy. What's Nice as the pieces? All are modular in a sense, you kind of break them apart and not feel like you're deconstructing too much. There's like the square pieces that have all the parts on them. But you know it's to be kind of a thing you dabble with and I wonder how long kids are GonNa stay focused on it or they'll move onto the next thing, which is the case with all Lego like we have? We have tons of kits that have been turned into bricks lying in the corner. Well it. Is I mean. The the initial starter set really gets you beginning the end in a couple of pieces, and this is designed to be more modular I. Suppose add more pieces to it. Like how does that work? Yes, so the there are ten additional courses that Nintendo announced plus four like you could change the overalls on Mario and get extra powers. Is a cat sued in propeller suit? Those are cool like. Like agency courses take advantage of the catsuit that tried that I got to play with that much, but it was it was. It was very durable the prices range from like twenty dollars for an extra pack, two hundred dollars for the Buzzer Castle, which falls in line with Lego prices I think that we've seen for other kids that the starter pack sixty. They can add up though The question each each course has its own little special coated bricks that do extra things. Some of them are their own mini games like there's a product plant mine carts slide the basically just tilt back and forth, and try to keep the cart balanced and not hit the plans, but it's not very complicated some spin hope the character doesn't fall off, but. You Know I. Think the way the interact I would like to see a little more again. A little more guidance lego actually as a are based. Game set called hidden inside. That I've checked out. That is actually up. A little more game focused where there are actual like many games and challenges. You have to look for something that's hidden in augmented reality. You have to keep holding your phone out right right I. There are some like hidden treasure blocks that they're built into some of the sats. That's pretty interesting, but as far as I could see on the APP, you just Kinda put it together and then hey, have see what happens, so there are no a are elements to this setup right? No, okay. No deliberately meant to really focus on the bricks, and which I really appreciate and I like the fact that the Mario. Just stays connected interactive, and you don't have to stare at a phone screen I think that's great for kids I would love to have a peach character that could have the reading and other characters, so you could do multiplayer and I don't think it would hurt to have more formalized programming things than they are like my my eleven year old, who who's learning python like you know that that's he's ready to do. Block based programming with is in Lego. Boost and some of the more advanced kits. This doesn't have any of that, but I you could. Could, adapt some sort of a programming idea to this Lego just hasn't explored yet, and these are these all out now or did they do this launch after you mentioned that there are multiple sets coming, so, what's the cadence of release schedule? They all launch. August I and so this is a really I got an advance. Look in will go said. We're pre-production sats, so I think they're pretty much going to be what they are, but you know I think there
