Nina Jankowicz Resigned and We Have Jack Posobiec to Thank
"The Washington Post writes quote just hours after jankowitz tweeted about her new job. The far right influencer Jack posobiec posted a tweet accusing the Biden administration of creating a ministry of truth. By the end of the day, there were 53,235 posts on Twitter mentioning the disinformation governance board. Many referencing jankowitz by name. According to a report by advanced democracy, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that conducts public interest research. In the days following that number skyrocketed, what I love about this is that there are think tanks that are funded on the left, where their full-time job is to say, hey, what went wrong with this thing? Find out who did. You know who it was Jack posobiec. That's who did it. Is they had to do a whole study and analysis. The advanced democracy a non partisan nonprofit organization who did a whole study of so where did we go wrong here? Of course, it wasn't the Mary Poppins singing. It wasn't the really bizarre like Harry Potter mentions. It wasn't her constantly sarcastic ironic. Tone towards everything wasn't a factor, she said she just wants to be able to censor political dissidents or the fact that you just kind of have a child running the disinformation board. No, no, no, according to The Washington Post and advanced democracy, it's those pesky far right influencers, Jack

As we watch that, mutual reception happened. But we also know when Venus is an Aries, all those tourist planets now have a new boss or the bosses come in ready to roll, you know, she'd been on vacation the last.

And then in your own chart, your Libra planets and your chores planets all look at Venus and go, oh, okay, what do you want us to do? It's kind of like she comes in a little like Mary Poppins.

And there's Jupyter over here, a 28, and you can see the sex tile. Now they met up and got married last in December of 2020.

Remember last December, what was going on man? Remember that. And of course, in our culture, we got the January 6th thing. The election stuff, fine. But in your own life, what was going on?

Tucker Carlson: Nina Jankowicz' One Skill Is Level Partisan Attacks
"Tucker Carlson last night. His analysis cut 15. Here's Tucker after he watched the Nina jankowicz, the new disinformation czar, channeling Mary Poppins to announce on TikTok, her new role, here was Tucker's classic response. Since the point of the show, we're going to say we're kidding, we're making all of this up. It's not really happening in the country you were born in, but it is happening. That's now a law enforcement official. It's also the person you just saw an individual who brags about getting a master's degree from Georgetown university. In case you were wondering if the entire academic credentialing machine that sustains America's ruling class is in fact a joke spoiler alert, yes, it is a joke. This is somebody was so few useful skills that she describes herself in the first words of her own bio as a quote internationally recognized expert on disinformation. As if that's a job of some sort. Imagine if one of your kids grew up to be an internationally recognized expert on disinformation. The shame you would feel. The pain of knowing that truly an unequivocally you had failed as a parent. After all those years of advanced education, Nina jankowicz became an internationally recognized expert on disinformation. And not only that, she can't even rhyme very well. When Nina Jenkins can do her one skill, the purpose for which she was hired is level partisan attacks on the other side with maximum ferocity. That is her real job. Now you may have noticed if you listen carefully to the diddy did she just say that every example of disinformation her karaoke performance came from people who oppose Joe Biden's policies? Is that a coincidence? Probably not.

Alfredo Ortiz: Joe Biden Has Not Been Good for Small Businesses
"States in action. America is a nation that can be defined in a single word. I was the foothills of the Himalayas with Xi Jinping. Traveling with them, and I traveled 17,000 miles when I was vice president. I don't know that for a fact. Alfredo, we're in trouble. I think he was trying to say supercalifragilistic exploitation. That would have made more sense. That I could have understood. Now I can realize a long time Mary Poppins fan. I could have related to that. I mean, honest to Pete, we have got a president, you know, one of the great questions is, is it deliberate or is he just out of it? Is it just, is he infirm? Is he senile? But at the end of the day, one thing Alfredo Ortiz knows and the job creators network knows, he has not been good for small businesses in America. Yeah, Mike, he really has and look, you know, I actually feel bad for the president. Whatever his condition is, whatever it is, I mean, I hope it gets addressed. I hope whatever is happening to him does get addressed, but you know, the reality is that he's the leader of our country and that's what's scary, right? It is. And it's dangerous. It's dangerous for our economy. It's dangerous for business. I am so tired of watching the way entrepreneurs and small business owners backs have been broken. They are desperately trying to stay above water. Nobody knows that better than you guys do. And I want to talk about the great opportunity project

"Again. How do you show your how do you decide what to show your kids and how do you respond when they like something that you don't like or you don't want them to watch? I am probably too careful in this regard. I can't think of many things that I have shown to them the way Moses showed the tablets he found up on that mountain. In my mind Old Testament Andy right there. I love it. In my mind, that is a surefire recipe for having them rejected. Because what you're doing is not showing them a movie you love, you're showing them a small still quivering unblemished part of your soul. That they will then see through and reject just to see what will happen. And that could be painful and it could cause you to retreat and cause them not to be curious and things anymore. That said, you also have to be mindful that you are the guardrails. And it's important to put good things in front of them before they are so far gone that they don't have a sense of what's good and what's bad and they certainly won't choose unfamiliar things. I think that in terms of screen time, two to four two to 5 is the sweet spot where my older daughter was really, really, really into things like Mary Poppins before she returned. Singing in The Rain, funny face was a big movie for her. This was before we let her watch things like frozen. And I am a frozen partisan. Second one is better. But I started with real person content, not animated. Yes, and as much stuff that we loved as possible. And also, there's also different tiers, of course, of animation, like I find the original Winnie the pooh film, Disney's winning the poof film to be just wonderful and kind of magical and transporting and nostalgic and very rhythmically good. For young children as opposed to just the sort of bots screaming at each other while dropping occasional clever lines for the grown-ups garbage, which is 90% of the animated films out there. So how do you decide that something that they're watching sucks or is bad and can.
"mary poppins" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman
"This is ridiculous. I called my sister who was my sort of constant confidant, and she's the costar of the book. And I interrupted yet another fabulous meal. She was having with all of her fabulous Friends. I said that said I'm done. I'm done. And she said, you remember Mary Poppins. It was a movie that we had watched on VHS tape so many times as a kid that we warped the tape. And she started singing it. And she's an opera singer. And my sister said, you need a list. You need to make a Mary Poppins list. And maybe just like in the movie, Mary Poppins appears the next day, maybe mister perfect will appear the next day. And at that point, I'd had some way to add some wine in me. I'd had a few cigarettes and I thought that's brilliant. That's exactly the right. That's perfect. That's what I should do. And I sat down and I started writing and writing and writing and pretty soon I had three pages of extremely granular, extremely detailed requirements for anybody that I would go out with. Very specific details. Extremely. He could not like the musical cats. I take umbrage with this, but that's another interview on another day. This is all there's some context. The previous relationship that I was in the guy, the guy listened to cats on full blast, nonstop. And also I had to accompany a bunch of people in high school for like music contests and they all wanted the same memories. And all of this is described hysterically in the book for those that are listening. Haven't yet read it. Yeah, I had like you could like musicals, but only certain musicals. And if you liked cats at all, then that was a deal breaker for me. Now, you also wanted your perfect partner to weigh 20 pounds more than you at any given time. So my question is, if you gain or lose weight, they have to gain or lose weight with you. That was sort of the plan. But okay, so for people who don't know me or haven't read the book, they're like, who is this crazy lady? And why did she make such a ridiculous list? So Mary bob and Liz, these things were specific and granular, but they actually are emblematic of bigger issues, right? I don't want somebody who's either such a fitness not that they're looking their nose down at me or they're slovenly and have terrible habits and they're going to not help me along in my journey. So the context behind this giant list of things was when you sign on to a dating site, they ask you questions like, are you a cat person or are you dog person? I'm not looking for a pen pal, right? I'm looking for a husband. That question is superficial. So instead, how can we get to a point where the data is not superficial, the data is extremely specific and meaningful. And that's really what the list was about. But of the 72 attributes, the list only included about 12 qualities that I could see were really about a person's essence. Most were a lot were behavioral, physical. And I was thinking as your grandmother might and wondering where love and chemistry and spontaneity might fit into this. I am not a spontaneous person. So I guess for me and my grandmother, that would not have been that big of an issue. So here's the deal. I had been proposed to twice before this fateful night of the list making happened. And in both cases, I had met these men in interesting and unique situations and they were great stories. Hollywood stories. How good stories I met this guy in an airport. We'd both missed our flight. We were in Tokyo. We had missed our connecting flight. We were both trying to get back to Chicago. I thought the guy was Japanese. I started talking to him in Japanese and very polite Japanese. It turns out he was American. I felt like an idiot. But that started us talking, we chatted a little bit more. It turns out he wound up quoting a story that I had written news week back to me. And then I quoted Nora Ephron and said, you just quoted me back to me. And then I was embarrassed but it turns out he loved that movie. It was just like this amazing beginning and by the time that we got to Chicago, it was so late that the only people left in the airport were my parents and his parents who had already been chatting and we grew up two hours away from each other. It was like this whole thing that seemed to be very meant to be. And it was passionate and it was exciting and two months later I realized that we had nothing in common. But other people, we sort of trudged along for a year and a half trying to make it work. I didn't want to be in a situation where I was going to trudge along and make it work because I thought that I could someday rekindle those initial sparks. Those initial sparks go away, and the whole name of the game here is how can you meet a person? How can you find that thing that thing that's going to complete you? That will continue to complete you as the years go on. And so for me, the passion, the spontaneity, all of that other stuff, it was either going to be there or it wasn't going to be there. But none of that mattered if I didn't have these incredibly important core things resolved. So you make your list, but then you take a radical, unprecedented data driven next step. You set up ten fake dating profiles, posing as ten men that fulfill these attributes that you're asking for on your Mary Poppins list. And you ultimately interact with 96 women in order to understand how to best position yourself online. What was that like? Tell us about that. Well, I had built this scoring system. So I wasn't actually looking for all 72 things. I was essentially looking for a combination of those things that added up to a certain number of points. And what had happened was in my drunken state, I realized I'd sort of found this perfect guy and I did all the math and crunch the numbers and he would qualify for me to go out with him. And he seemed like the neurotic Jewish doctor of every mother's dreams of my mother's dreams. And when I thought, if I think he's this great, there are probably other women who think he's great, too. So I decided to sign on as a man to just sort of look around and see what was there. Profile after profile after profile, there were happy women that sounded happy that looked happy that used the word happy many times. They were showing skin. They were all beautiful. And I just thought to myself, you know, in person, these women are probably not as interesting as me. They're probably not as smart as me, but it doesn't matter. Because I'm never going to get to that in person date with all of these women on this site. And at that moment I decided I should collect evidence I should do market research. I should do what I would do with a client and treat myself as a client. So I did I spent a month with these profile archetypes I had ten and each one of the profiles had a combination of points that would have qualified him for me to have a long-term relationship. And ultimately, all I wanted to know was who were the women that are attracted to the same men that I am?.

"You but is somehow related to you. So i think it's it's. It's getting dressed and brushing teeth promptly. Look at yourself when you're brushing your teeth getting self together and just looking on that. Is it until you need to fix yourself up again. Absolutely we've had This email into us from linn baker who writes mirrors light weighing scales are instruments of the devil salute. There is a great saying she writes a better to keep your mouth shut and have them believe. You're an idiot. Then open it. I confirm their beliefs. It's the same with mirrors better to avoid them and believe you ugly than to look at them and confirm your worst fears. I avoid cameras for the same reason that there's only one academic whose work i followed. Who decided not to use a mirror for a whole year and she got married in that year and she had to develop an internal strength of recognizing that she existed in space that she was a physical being. She was an energetic being rather than a flat surface. Which is what. Of course amir is but it's pretty hard. Not look in. The mirror isn't it. Yeah i think is quite hard. because we're surrounded by them. And i think not any mirrors with their with surrounded by zoom. So at an many many people right. Yeah many people not turning off self you so instead of looking at each other as we are at moment they're looking at themselves which is yet another distortion because the thing about amid mirror is you're looking at yourself as surface and none of us are surfaces. We have the most mobile faces and eyes and cheeks and and smiles and sar eyebrows. Everything yeah and so when you catch yourself in mirror. It's a frozen millisecond which is not expressive of who you are and so it's really major distortion. I mentioned the selfie to melissa there. But how much do you think. Social media has exacerbated or exaggerated the situation. What we're talking about the the chinese cameras about five years ago Had on eight different levels of beauty just simply took a photo. Ended it You you've said what level of beauty wanted in there are massive bloggers. I suppose they would be who have followings because of their capacity to to become hollywood stars. Hollywood type stars to to to decorate themselves in ways that presents an image that is. I think it's absolutely critical. No that in certain surveys. Where you you women looking young women looking for likes when they don't get them. They pull down their picture and then spend the several hours and operations to push them out again to try and get more like so. I think it's quite damaging and it sort of relates to an earlier Theme that we were talking about is not valuing oneself as feeling that once value has to comes through that external experience in this case which is instead of risking that you might actually be okay and of course it's important to stress. It's not just women who have a complex relationship with mirrors men do to yes. I think it's growing now. I unfortunately it's growing. I wish they they. They want having the same kind of difficulty in obsession. But you know it's just too damn big a market to avoid men and men's appearance and men's fashion and men's make happen therefore men's mirrors absolutely all studio but we appreciate you giving us a few tips. Their doctrine scout the art of the perfect mirror going to make a few notes. Now a thank you and of course to get in touch with us if you want to share your thoughts on the mirrors.

"Listeners. Story i cousin experience was Having relationships that were unhealthy for many years so relationships with people who were unavailable to me.

I accepted peanuts as you said And i didn't believe the. I was one of the and i also had fear of life of living of making choices and i found my way via I also had an eating disorder. 'cause that was one of the ways i i manage my feelings so i found my way to co dependence. An anonymous fire. Another twelve step group angled overeaters anonymous. I then came to codependence anonymous. Which is all about. Having a healthy relationship with yourself and with others and i have been a member of that fellowship for some fourteen years on my life has transformed. My relationships have transformed. And i went from having relationships with unavoidable people not fighting myself in relationships to eventually having a healthy relationship with someone who was available i got married two years ago and very happy in my relationship and i am a working progress. So i still attend codependent synonymous and from my experience. We need the support of other people You recovering in this way. In order to find the strength to leave a relationship in order to find the the self belief that we deserve better and also a susan said often. These co-dependency comes from our early life. Experiences not having on needs met Imagining into adulthood with a sense of fia offensively self esteem low self worth and then looking for ways to feel better about ourselves but those ways often unhealthy getting into relationships. That aren't good for us. we're katherine. i'm really happy to hear that you are in a better place. Now and as you say a working progress but huge steps that you've taken and delighted that you are in a place where you feel more content and a susan important points raised by catherine there. How common is codependency. Then i think there's probably a continuum and that probably all on that continuum at one one place of another i mean we can all relate to perhaps Asserting ourselves or trying to please other people love to be a wanting to be liked is a natural human phenomenon really. I think the problem comes when m it starts to develop everyday life on. It's probably more common than we are probably aware off and again it's degrees for dependence going from perhaps your life reading functioning a toll to being functional but probably dissatisfied so and as as the the caller said you know it doesn't it doesn't really go and you can get he lane you. An attachment can be much healthier but they could probably always susceptible perhaps when things are getting tough to go back to those old patterns that are not productive off am denying the self. You know overriding what you need and want and perhaps going along with somebody else when it gets an answer from both of you on this next question because it's really y our listener got in touch with us. What should she do catherine so what was interesting about what she said. Is that You when she wasn't in a relationship. It seemed that she wasn't dependent but then she got into a relationship on the co-dependency showed up. And i can very much relate to that. And you know we. We do want to be in relationship. Not just romantic relationships but we want to be unhealthy relationships. I would suggest that your listener seek as much support as possible. Because it's very difficult to break these patents on our own..

"Hour we welcome you messages and there was one email from an anonymous listener that really stood out for us in recent days. And it's one that we wanted to share with you and address. It's all about codependency. And his some of that message in the mid nineties. I was in a relationship with someone who was out of work and sat about during nothing but mon whilst i was working in a lowly job in a school and struggling to cope with his daughter who was really difficult. Our seeing psychotherapist at the time he gave me a book and said read that it was called co-dependency. It seemed to be about my life. History it was a relief to understand why had chosen the life. I had and was as i was. I was almost happy. I also understood that. Codependency is at addiction and went to To anonymous twelve step meetings which did help a bit and allowed me to end the relationship. After that i was alone for a number of years and co dependency was forgotten. Then out of the blue. I met someone that was amazing. He was married but he made it plain. He wanted to leave. I feel. I should make it clear that his wife knows about me. It's not easy between us. Which is obvious really. But i'm still seeing him and his lovely needless to say after quite a number of years he's still living with his wife. I'm allowed over two days a week. Which i know is peanuts. Something happened a couple of days ago. That really made me think about the position. i'm in. I turned again to the codependency book and was horrified to realize. I'm still codependent. Putting up with second-best. What do i need to do now. Well thank you to our listener for sharing that honest account with us questions there. How does co-dependency develop. And what can you do if your relationship feels unhealthy. I'm joined now by counselor. Susan mcgrath and catherine who is a member of codependence anonymous. uk. Thank you both for your time. Season i to you. How would you describe codependency in the. How does it manifest. Well i guess. I would describe it as an insecure attachment and a person can have a pure of self and finds it difficult to assert themselves or to set boundaries and an hop those boundaries respected. I would say it comes from family of origin issues. The early years of child is very important to creating a safe sense cell and so if there is other any issues in the family like addiction or abuse or even neglect the child internalizes sense that they're not good enough to not lovable enough not worthy enough and that sheiky sense itself go you go into the world with a shaky sends himself and you are susceptible to relationships are not nurturing not functional and it comes from that sense of really not being good enough the core.

He said that we should Have him come back and clean it with a power brush in the spring and take it down to the brick. 300 more dollars. Do you think this is necessary? What I would recommend is many of the chimney services out there one in particular that sponsors here on WGN Radio Lindemann. They use a camera system, which I think is really the best way for any homeowner to understand exactly what's going on. They have this. Basically, it's ah smartphone that they have this device that they put it into, and then they go from the bottom and they go up and they take a serious of pictures. In some cases, it's a video and you can see exactly what's going on. If you're someone that burns a lot of natural fires, meaning that you're using firewood. It's recommended by the chimney Sweep Institute of America that you get it cleaned. Once a year now, normally under cleaning, they do use a brush, you know, just like Dick Van Dyke and Mary Poppins, right? I mean, literally. It's still that that way, and they'll put tarps down or whatever. Now, the power brush brush is basically a ah large drill attachment that takes that same brush and under higher speeds. Um Will will will clean it. I don't necessarily know that it's necessary again it if this person used some type of camera to see or just look down the chimney from up above. Then, you know, you certainly want to hope that you could take him for the their word. But using the camera is the best way to know for sure. If you need this service. What do we need to know about propane heaters, restaurants are using them. A lot of folks setting up backyard tense and Propane heaters. Are you Are you selling a lot of those? I'll tell you.

He brought word builders on my mom and dad's honeymoon. My mom complaint. He wanted to just no words. And he loved the sound of words and how they felt on your tongue. My dad and uncle had a favorite song that they had created for Mary Poppins called the Eyes of Love. But while Disney said, could you write something that's more in line with the philosophy of Mary Poppins? And it was all just falling flat. They're both really depressed. Well, it happened that that day. I was at school. I was about six years old. And they were giving us the oral polio vaccine, you know, wasn't the shot. So I you know, stood in line with all my friends, and we all just took this thing. And then I got home and my dad looked depressed and all the shades were closed. It was very dark in the house. And I said Oh, we had the polio vaccine at school today and he looked at me he goes. You let someone give you a shot at school. Did it hurt? I said no, no, no.

House of Mouse Announces 10 Million Signups on Disney+ Launch Day
"Family friendly streaming service Disney plus. You've heard about it right. The company announced for more than ten million new subscriptions on its first day scoring some technical glitches but also shooting past analysts expectations and apparently their own expectations. Since two analysts had predicted Disney plus would reach ten to eighteen million subscribers in its first year. According to the Verge Disney's stock shot up seven in percents on the news that ten million number looks all the more striking when you compare it to those of existing Streaming Services Hulu plus which Disney now owns has twenty eight million subscribers. And it's been around for eleven years then there's ESPN plus another Disney. Property launched in April twenty eighteen and it has only two and a half million subscribers according to CNBC of course net flicks still dominates with one hundred fifty eight million subscribers worldwide but then again netflix created the streaming video category way. Back in two thousand seven and if there's anyone staying up at night worrying about the success of Disney plus it's Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. But but let's start with how Disney got to this point and just what so many viewers are looking for. I we have to note that the first week is free and so some unknown no number of subscribers are likely to have cancelled by the time. You're hearing this and another big. Group is getting Disney plus whether they asked for it or not less than a month ago Disney announced. What's that the service will be free for a year? For New and existing verizon unlimited subscribers that number could be as high as eighteen million people even if the promotion attracts no new subscribers. In case you weren't one of those first day sign ups. Here's what Disney plus viewers are getting access to a catalogue of five hundred Disney movies films from Pixar Lucasfilm and marble and seventy five hundred TV episodes including all thirty seasons of the simpsons and thirty five original original shows to ten at launch original content includes an eagerly anticipated live action star wars series called the mandatory in which garnered at least two million Leeann downloads. On the first day. That right there is probably a big part of the blame for those frustrating early outages. Right also a remake of the iconic lady and the TRAMP avengers injures endgame and other Marvel Films Plus documentaries from National Geographic spending cosmic sums of money for new shows to almost a billion bucks in twenty eight twenty alone according to the Hollywood reporter. Still the trade paper says Disney's counting more in its back catalogue at least for now longtime. CEO and chairman. Bob Iger is known as a fearless US risk taker a guy who believes in the motto innovator die observers say he's bet the future of Disney on streaming sinking billions into this project including it's seventy a billion dollar acquisition of twenty th century Fox's assets Disney also took back much of its catalog from netflix dropping. What had been a lucrative partnership and so it makes sense that a CEO betting big on Disney's future in streaming would go for a land? Grab on the first day out. One way to bag as much market share as possible of course is to price aggressively which is just what Disney has done. The company unveiled its low seven dollars a month price tag this spring in a splashy press conference on on a movie Lot were Disney filmed the original. Mary poppins she might call that a spoonful of sugar but for Netflix. It's a bitter pill. It's monthly charges. Start at nine dollars dollars and go up from

thought because that particular strain of syphilis was so strong at the time it made your joints stiffen up so you physically couldn't wrap your fingers round so either way gets it's syphilis related

doesn't dabble in the supernatural and I really don't think Dracula kind of goes over to the technological outside either I don't think he's ordering stuff on Amazon now that's he's definitely not neuberger either no no no no now to kind of help us with this debate we needed the think outside the box for judges and ray you had a great suggestion to bring someone in who when you think of contracting styles you think if someone who can kind of wrap their heads around the cultural impact of each character you brought up someone's name why thought was absolutely genius you can you can go ahead and Gush your guts out because what you're trying to say here's we needed somebody a little smarter for this episode and that's what I got for you definitely smarter than you and I and I think that's exactly what we got it's not saying it's not I know I I'm not saying doc I'm just not saying that you're smart and joining us in an amazing amazing actor comedian and voice over artists is Rama Blurry rumour accused of being on the show thank you for having me I didn't realize I was GONNA get buttered up so quickly at the beginning of the show well of course we're getting buttered up by James He wants something from you Aka Torri in this battle are you saying you don't want anything from me right I'm just saying I'll deserve it when I get it okay so you're willing to accept whatever my judgment is by the end I'm fact you look great today that out very very attractive man really James when I said let's bring someone smart maybe even genius intellect in the studio it wasn't actually needing for the person to be so gosh darn handsome but here we are well here we are and I'm I'm already tallying in my head I can't tell you who's winning this flatter off yet yet rabbi they'll tell you I I gotTa Tell You you're very successful active done a lot with your voice over career you're in a number of nationally and internationally syndicated commercials correct you know for different companies you're absolutely amazing I'm GonNa just ask you the question everyone else's thinking right now how are you friends with Ray I appeared on another podcast of raise knowing is half the podcast a great show that rates show and I linked to the three people on that show yeah it was here breath with the fabulous Mr Clark Chan and everyone's friend Eileen Eileen Mary O'CONNELL judge the muppets versus sesame street battle on the WHO would win six one of our favorites yep so I met I met Ray there and was wild by his podcasting acumen but also his passion for purely obscured or pop cultural Ephemera so when he asked if I would do this I said yes and then when he told me what the battle was I said Oh hell yeah very cool so what is your experience within geek culture because very often we have judges that have such a great background to them that we sometimes forget to say like hey by the a sheer he really is into this because they were they do how are you into Geek culture well first off I wear glasses so that got me eh into it very early I read compulsively I just finished my eighth book of the year and the year of the year and that includes graphic novel doesn't things some recommended to me by Mr Clark Chan I consume a lot of media and between the written word art nick cartoons as voiceover guy doing cartoons and video games and things I'm paying attention to everything going on because this is a fun visit a fun learning lesson for anybody who wants to do voices if you do impressions and I do a lot of impressions you have to realize that if you do a bad impression it becomes a character but if you do a good impression understand somebody else might do it too so the key example is this Alan tutic everybody loves Allen to one of the most underrated absolutely Kazan firefly's amazing he's easing everything death at a funeral he was one of my favorite parts of that he took the voice of Ed Wynn Vaudeville performer win famously in Mary poppins the laughing uncle off the table forever now I loved I loved doing this man's voice it was just so much on yet we're still in the middle of Shock Tober James you've been having a very shall we say successful shock Tober so far I have I've I'd like to say that I had to work really hard to get to wins in the month of shocked over the reality is I did not have to work that hard at all I didn't even research either character I just came to the show because you are a liar who was filled with lies actually researched the hell out of I hope I can say that in shock to over the heck out of both characters they were close matches by the a ray did will was there and I somehow pulled out the victory for both so I am in in crisis mode right now because I love this matchup I love Dracula vs Cyborg and look I cannot allow Cyborg to win this battle the idea that I could be facing a skunk for the entire month of shocked HCT sickens and appalls me in I'm not trying to influence your decision in any way Rama you still have to make the right decision you still have to make the right decision for you and family well see here's the thing ray as the impartial judge here I have to rule with my mind and not with my heart so you're pleading as moving may be as heartbreaking as it may be that you are putting up a goose egg this month I can't promise you a victory I can't I have to listen to the facts argued I want is for you to hear arguments and make the correct decision that's all if if every judge did that I would have a ninety five percent win percentage on the show well I gotTa Tell You James Your silence so far in your willingness to just plead the facts and all this is going to be a very dragnet performance I'm interested in just the facts ray all right just the fact enough all right well then let's waste no more time reduce the honors and announced as matchup representing the DC universe the manso metal he irons his clothes with his but cyborg doc and representing the Marvel Universe the count who will dig through the ditches burn through the witches and slamming the back of my dracula thank you okay I'll make a note about it we'll make a note about it before we go any further let's go over the official rules about who would win matched I roll number one each debater will be able to make three points rule number two the WHO would win matches a random encounter in neutral location with neither combatant necessarily knowing anything about their opponent or having any time to prepare part will number three the exact version the character has to be specifically stated so rare which version of Dracula you're using this is such a tough decision there are so many iterations of dragon in this world but I felt that since you assuredly are taking comic book version of Cyborg it would behoove me to take the powers feats and whatnot of the a six one six Marvel Marvel version of dracula gay that kind of scares me a little bit because that's in my opinion the most powerful form DRACULA in popular culture so it's Kinda what's being known as what People Know About Dracula these days I felt anymore right that's true okay well I will be using when did it become a New Yorker right now are you filled with a certain level of bombast when you get to the Mike you lean in and then you start projecting on Amazon by Taibbi and Hashtag who would win rate please give us the DETAILS ON DRACULA COUNT DRACULA is a powerful vampire who first appeared in the eighteen ninety seven brands Tokar Novel Dracula. Today's version of this iconic character is the marvel iteration who first appeared in historical suspense number seven in Nineteen fifty one then was rebooted in Tomb of Dracula number one in nineteen seventy two the newer version was made by Gerry Conway as well as Gene COLAN DRACULA'S PERHAPS THE MOST famous vampire of all time sorry twilight kids owing to the era a free to use characters in Comic Books Dracula makes her a formidable monster or overlord ending on the needs of the Story Dracula has a host of vampiric abilities including
Netflix Vows to Curb Onscreen Smoking Amid 'Stranger Things' Criticism
"A stranger things season three debuted on Netflix on the fourth of July the show takes place in nineteen eighty five and a lot of people were upset at the depictions of smoking by several lead characters in stranger things well they have address this and a Netflix spokespersons telling The Hollywood Reporter that they strongly support artistic expression however recognizing that smoking is harmful and win per trade positively on screen can adversely influence young people so now they say going forward as a result of people getting upset about smoking all new projects that the commission with the rating of TV fourteen or below or for movies that are PT thirteen and below there will be no smoking in E. cigarette use except for reasons have historical or factual accuracy so they're a little model there yeah it's a little Lucy goosey but what they're saying initial like stranger things TV fourteen rating on that yeah that they wouldn't really really limit the use of cigarettes I mean they could argue that you know they would not use them at all I mean there's several characters and in the mid eighties of people smoke please I mean like if we can just have an open and honest conversation about the nineteen eighties for a second here you could smoke anywhere you could smoke on airplanes I believe still in the eighties all you could do that on domestic flights in yes in eighties and internationally I think you do the nineties Sir even in the two thousands it was that recent that smoking bans were passed in restaurants and bars yeah I got really upset at the time saying you know I want my beer in my sick I'm out for a good time those two go together now they don't anymore because I mean I even remember as an adult waiting tables in restaurants that had smoking section yeah I mean I seem to recall like being at Southdale in people could smoke like in the courtyard there like that whatever the middle area I think that's my memory so Netflix is doing this for all of Netflix or just stranger things all of that flick and they said fourteen under right yeah okay because I was not say what they can do about madman well yeah would be a conversation about historical or factual accuracy but even that would be like here to tell you sorry I totally just talked right over your Holly I apologize I was going to say before going on to your thought that even with a show like mad men or other shows like it where they would probably I mean I would assume highly discourage the romanticized the use of cigarettes which they could probably point to something like mad men or other shows and say Hey look the way that you're too big depicting tobacco use in the show is not is in a light that is not that we're not we're not doing right now but to avoid a do not doing that but here's what I was going to say I don't know about your situation siding with your daughter but my kids what ever they're being taught in school is working because they literally one were walking outside in the C. somebody smoking it is the same as if you saw somebody I don't know scratching their eyeballs out that's how crazy it looks I mean they I don't see it like that person is smoking and they it's like I'm it is like a taboo to them they know it's bad they know it's not good they are they have judgments about it and so I almost feel like they're already coming to it with an eye of like that's bad and you then you can have that conversation I mean if we were my kids are watching stranger things I think my twelve year old is curious about it I don't really I I prefer him to be able to sleep at night I'm just interested you know yeah get that show but but I think if you were watching it and he saw people smoking he would not think any he would not think it's glamorous even if the person seems glamorous you see what I mean right he would see that as like a flaw of the person's character I can't believe that person the smoking ban the smoke yeah not as Lee I don't think that that's something they got from us because my husband and I know we we know people who are active smokers and you know so it's not like we ever have made a big deal out of it I really think they get that from school and so whatever they're being taught about cigarettes and stuff like that me up at school like the the don't do drugs yeah that's probably what it is yeah I mean but so my point being like let's give kids some credit but they also can understand that because I do think it tells a story if you know in the eighties you could really smoke anywhere right and also not leaving out smoking in stranger things if you were to do that it's just a reality of the time yeah scene eighty five and to your kids credit they understand that smoking is not good for you right and that also we live in twenty nineteen where the idea of public smoking is pretty much all but obliterate yeah from lately completely yeah so no it's not I yeah because we had this conversation about the movie saving Mr banks all yeah so we've we have gone down this conversation before not just with strangers thing season three so if you recall the movie saving Mr banks of that came out a couple of years ago and it's about the making of the movie Mary Poppins and Tom Hanks stars as Walt Disney and in that movie Disney made a very deliberate decision to not depict Walt Disney as the chain smoker that he was okay they are they honestly honest to goodness the studio made that decision to not depict Walt Disney as a smoker and he was a ridiculous smoker to the point he passed away due to complications from lung cancer but several years after that movie took place in nineteen sixty six yeah just like you know that was part of his character in my demeanor ultimately led him down the path of his eventual path but for them to just completely say the slippery slope when we start to sanitize history

Oscar nominations 2019 predictions: From A Star is Born to Roma
"Eight. I saw green book most recently, which I thought was great that may end up being my pick to to win the best picture. You've seen all best picture movies except for Roma. So you've got Black Panther black klansman bohemian rhapsody, by the way, Adam Lambert and Queen are going to perform Sunday, that'd be cool. That'll be really lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper performing. Which will also be cool. You really cool the favorite green book Romo rumour, aroma. Tony Romo model a star is born and vice. And who you picking unpicking green book to win because I think it made you feel the best and it was well done a period piece based on a true story, Rome. I think is getting a lot of a lot of buzz too. But maybe the director Affonso who also I think one best picture for gravity in our best director in two thousand thirteen for gravity Black Panther, which I know dragon scene for sure is definitely the best of all the marvel movies ever made. And it's interesting because it was such a big deal about their cast being all black the director and writer Ryan Kugler African American and so I'm surprised that he wasn't nominated for best director as well, Spike, Lee. This is his fifth nomination for best director. He's never one. But I'm picking green book to win that wouldn't be surprised if Roma does I loved bohemian rhapsody. But you remember when it came out, and we talked about they took some liberties with the story joke that Freddie Mercury doesn't die of aids in the movie because I remember making that joke. They changed a bunch of stuff around in that movie. Why did you read the bio and Freddie Mercury? I talked to friends that have seen it the no a lot more about Queen and the timetable with how the movie plays out and how he got in the band and stuff, but it's an entertaining movie. What's the best movie you've seen this year because I'm picking green book to win? I haven't seen any of them, by the way. So I got nothing. Oh. Yeah. Set a best picture you haven't seen Black Panther either. No. But are you a superhero movie guy? No, not at all. No. I I haven't seen any of those. I'm gonna say that I I like bohemian rhapsody a lot and I'm not a huge Queen fan. But I really liked it. But I'm gonna go with the stars four stars born it was it was really really I think the biggest reason reasonable win. Cathy, is that it's already been this is the fourth. They've done this story. I know that they've tweaked it. I didn't lady Gaga is gonna pull the upset for best actress, I hope so I you know, it really really made me like lady Gaga put her in a total different category fro. Yes. She's fantastic. A great singer. But you know, I I like her music, but I never put her like on this pedestal you've tried to act not try you weren't actor try. That's a bit of a stretch. But yeah, but the point is imagine the first real you ever play you get nominated for an Oscar, and I get that she's playing a struggling musician, and she can easily identify with that and go back to what it took to get discovered and all of that. And and you know, toiling in nothing jobs hoping for that break, but to execute that onscreen, and she was she was the best part of the movie by far Bradley Cooper is really good. But I hope she wins. Even though Glenn Close, it's seven nation. She's never one. So she could be a lifetime achievement kind of winner. If you will she's phenomenally talented, she s I don't know. But I liked Ramey. Malik as I think he's going to go. I mean, he did a great impersonation. So let's go actor in a leading role, you got Christian bale? Vice Bradley Cooper, a star is born Willem Defoe at eternity gate. Remmy Romney Malik bohemian rhapsody Vigo Mortenson green book, jussie smollet for the Chicago hope. Very funny. Avi next next year. He'll get one for that bright. Yeah. Like when Golden Globes. Yeah. So that it plus you're combining acting and singing did he really singing. Oh, okay. So we he was acting like a cigarette. Huber really saying. Yeah, he did having Adam Lambert seeing at the goal K, so okay. And at the Oscars, maybe Bradley Cooper, then because he's singing and acting and this is any directed it. This is Bradley Cooper's forced nomination as an actor, and he's never won Christian bale. One once Willem Dafoe. This is his fifth nomination. He's never won. And I don't I know Vigo Mortenson hasn't won. And certainly Rami Malik first nomination. Still picking me Malik to win. I thought he was great. Actress in a leading role you have low LIZA appereciation from Roma. You have Glenn Close. Everybody knows here from the wife Livia Coleman from the favorite lady. Gaga stars born Melissa McCarthy, can you ever forgive him in a more serious turn not a not a comedic role. She's awesome. The best lady Gaga for that. I think it's upset Glenn Close as the heavy favorite. But I'm I'm pulling a lady Gaga upset as my pick feel like Glenn Close because she's been around. So long performance is great. And then maybe it's like her turn kind of thing. Maybe and, but they did it lady Gaga's gonna keep acting and have another shot seems far-fetched at this point. Right. So is leader thirty. So, but how come Bradley Cooper, gene, get a directing because he did for American sniper? So that's about those are the biggies right there. Yeah. Supporting actor and actress, Marcia Lee who is in green book, I bet you. He wins a second. You don't want to talk about making hairstyling best animated feature. Incredible to come on. I don't know about best editing. The spider verse hairstyling best song song about best picture. Or did. We did that already songs. Best. The song. Okay. What are your choices? I don't see all the stars Black Panther. I'll fight RV g the place where lost things go. Mary. Poppins returns. Shallow. A star is born when a cowboy change Spurs for wings, the ballot BUSTER Scruggs, and that's different from original score original scores of music throughout the movie right songs. I think it'll be almost impossible. For lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper not to win. I think they win. Okay. We're we're out of time. I'll watch part of it. Yeah. It's like a four hour show. Four hours. It's hard to it gets here. It's one of my favorite my favorite nights of the year. I used to always do with my mom. That guy picks. I'm that guy. I have a couple of friends getting together to watch the show. I get it. I mean, if you watch I haven't seen all the movies. I wait to watch him on the Denver Broncos play. Year later used be all the movies. It'll be of several of these. Oh, I gave did your wife end up watching bohemian a couple times guide and really liked.
Making Ballet Accessible to Youngsters
"Usually doesn't take much persuasion to get children to go and see a film at the cinema can be quite a different situation though for other art forms like setting quietly for a ballet performance. Now, a British ballet company has come up with an idea they hope will introduce a new young audience to classical dance, and perhaps their parents as well lauch provider has this report from Manchester in the UK. And popcorn cornet. At one of those massive multi screen cinema complexes where you can pick and choose from a dizzying array of made for popcorn blockbusters as a group of children aged around four to six eagerly waiting to get into one of the screens. But then not here to watch the latest Pixar animation who Mary Poppins watching. That sitting comfortably in the cinema. My name is an neater and before you'll get to watch the wonderful. I thought it might be nice. If a toll to a little story. This is the story of the toys and the hat performed by world-class stances from the lead spaced northern ballet company. Most children will already be familiar with the story and with the use of bright colors phone costumes, and some animation the dances on the silver screen have this audience transfixed. So you take a step with that leg and cross over this lack? Stat another step and three bulbs of the head. Hi, my name's government cake. I am tortoise and a massive Cain apply. -able shell on my back that allows me to move and I've been how on 'em. So basically the cinema screenings 'em at the beginning of them. We are going to teach the kids some of the dance moves. So that Juding m the the performance they can kinda get up and have allow dance along with us. Just great to see cads engage in with the arts and that way. Government cage on his fellow dances. Already been toying with three different live Bally's, especially adopted four children. But now the ballet company hopes to reach a far bigger audience with these filmed versions with the help of event cinema distributor sin ovens. They'll host over two hundred screenings across the UK this winter and spring David Nixon is the northern Ballet's artistic director. Once you put something into a cinema. You have possibility to to really reach out and go further, it's an experiment. I mean, we haven't done it before we're hoping people engage with it. And that they see it as an add on to theater experiences. Not instead of after they've seen something like this in the cinema. Is it also your hope that they might then feel it's time to approach theater to have already done. So you always trying to get people to the theatre. It's about new people and is about this. Kind of unconscious bias that. Some people have that they can't go to theater, I some people feel that when you enter into that elitist thing I'm not of the right class to go to the and so hopefully in that different environment. If people see well, actually, I'm quite enjoying this performs. Maybe I'll go see a live performance. Now that would really be the icing on the

Okay. This money. Must be appropriated by congress. It doesn't come in from tax revenue. It has to go through congress. Okay. Through tax revenue. It's still has to be a portion by congress and congress is going to keep saying, no because guess what they were saying. No when when Paul Ryan was running them only, they weren't saying no as overly. But the fact of the matter is is the Republican party's donors are not happy at the idea of not having all that cheap labor being shut off. So this border wall thing is a game that they're playing with their base. Okay.

Okay. Because he feared that Mr. sessions when he was attorney general would conveniently bury it and that Mr. Whittaker would do the same.
