"I love him popping up in stopped he just makes a world feel so real. You know just of real world. Which actually he just passed away this year. Didn't he did. Yeah but i was thinking about that ghostbusters saying that they had the the music and man. Yeah that's like super timeless. I'll never ever forget that scene. No yeah he he makes you know when you're trying to make do a fictional things seemed like it has real world implications having leary. Kingston narrative sleeves rolled up stop. It definitely makes it feel It definitely makes it feel a little bit more genuine But i i like like we should apologize like we shop at home we shop on the internet. You know and we feel like we're more connected but were more cutoff than ever than any than any time in human history where becoming a synthesized society and a great big hurry to get onto the is kind of like pulls off like yeah. That's kind of a little prophetic. It's kind of a little true especially now with like fucking look at amazon prime. I buy something right now and it'd be here by the time we finished recording. You know. it's fucking crazy. Yeah i mean. I guess one could say it's kind of sad. Think like you know where we were at in the nineties With you know what he's talking about losing faith consumerism putting meaning into just buying more like meaningless material things to just fast forward twenty years in the twenty first century. And it's just kind of you know. It's got a little more of an issue. I think and i do like the name of his book on. Larry king losing faith and i think that's a that's a faith no more album. Losing faith be good. Excuse me yeah suck my throat. Go dude that literally. I bet you a hundred bucks. If he's listening to this and i'll have just one of those But like yeah we get a little bit of this interview. But then the infamous do. The sound is so terrifying but awesome at the same time. you know. there's just something just that. Wow wow wow what. The fuck is going on the whole scene where. She's in her car and she's like radioing in again twister vibes fantasy but this is one of my favorite scenes in the movie because it really just starts picking up like finally know thirty five thirty seven minutes in. We've finally get that old man you know here we go right. We finally get exactly what we're here for. You know like why we signed up but even the way that again when this happens we zoom in on a shot of elis is. This is a this is a recurring thing of like seeing the universe in her is the kind of thing happens more and more will not more and more but it happens a little bit more as you as you watch it more times. You start really kind of noticing..

"That jodi foster would fall in love with him after watching taxi driver and ach but he's out like he i think he lives with his parents or something like that but i don't think he will. I think he was legit. I mean he was very disturbed and they were said like hey. He's actually fine now like he's been doing now since the eighties you know he's been he's been in a mental institution so hopefully you know you may maybe try to kill somebody but at the same time you know. Got the help that he needed. You know if they let him out. I fucking hope so so one thing that i find interesting here. I don't know maybe you would agree. when she is out in the desert listening and that guy i think his name's willie he's out there like fishing or something like a kiddie pool. I get super twister vibes with up. You know what. I'm talking about like. Oh yes about that scene. And we're we're at that just brings out some twister vies with the bill paxton and i don't know why but It's something about it known it definitely. Does you have these. Like kooky characters is a big white van they are. They're all kind of like they're they're all chasing something from nature you know. It's kind of weird. You know you have a blind guy the guy with glasses. You have the weird. bearded hippy. Kind of guy you know. You've got all these different people But yeah there is something that's that did become such a such a trope though of just like. oh you know. I'm sure he's wearing like socks with sandals and he eats his sandwiches. You know from the inside out or something. Yeah whatever like. He doesn't weird shit but That that was kind of like philip. Seymour hoffman and twister. You know dusty. That's kind of that kind of character that just became like this kind of Like charlie from always car pitches. Now he's just as wild duck person But you know of course there's again like even if even as they get you know funding from hatton that their government owned telescopes their leasing. They think they're wasting time again. We we've kind of this is the only thing is that they pull the funding at like the twenty seven minute mark and then by the thirty two minute mark. We've hit the same problem again as i don't i don't need you know. It seemed almost a little repetitive. But it also. I like it because it also does show like not only when you get. The funding is at enough people. Still think you're wasting your time and and take this away from you like it's just it always seems like it's there's like an uphill battle and i do like that within the first thirty two minutes and movie. It's like her dad has died. She's getting funding taken away. She's got a now. They're talking about taking away. The satellites like i kind of cool because it just it. It builds the stack. More of of exactly what is at stake and and what people like you said earlier. I even people in this field thinking about what you're doing not just some guy works. You know fuck an amazon or something like actual people in your field thinking you're fucking wasting your life like cab. That would. I'd hate to work there. Imagine if you went to work every day and there's just be wasting his life doing this like faulk man like what the hell but this is You know her her listening. Going out to the desert. This is where you were talking about that. That interview with With palmer joss On On larry king. But i love seeing larry king and stuff you know he pops up in like ghostbusters pops up in like cruisers..

"And i kind of noticed that between those three and and that's that's that's kind of interesting you know But especially you know his shit in this. I just i. I like the dialogue in our. You can consider me a man of the cloth without the cloth. Yeah i like that line. That's cool like i thought that was an interesting like some of his doozy's but i love that one Love when she's like you want to get out of here. I'm getting fucking laid. Not you can you. Can you can hear it in his fucking head but they you go to this. They go to l. radar You know and they're talking about she's point out of you. No there's four hundred billion stars out there and do just a just a coincidence. You know the whole wellbeing. Awful wasted space as i can. She sunk the she's at this point she's drenched. I'm just gonna say no. She isn't really says. Oh my god And plus it's fuck and matthew mcconaughey in the nineties. Any duties fucking gorgeous. Like i can i can. I can say that like somebody who's not attracted a man but it's objectively at two gorgeous dude you know like of course you know. Maybe not jodie foster per se. You know she's not you know she doesn't like men but the the thing that the thing that cracks me up is like seeing them waking up together and he's i guess it's your dad you know it's like dude you known this woman for like four days. I may be win. Start talking about her dead dad after you finish plowing her like i would not probably go into you know what i mean like. Yeah like my dad passed away fucking ten years ago you know but if i were having sex and somebody who's extra. Tell me about your dad. It'd be like what did that come from. But i like the fact that she's not. She's not fully committed to this. You know you can see him. Be like hey. I'll go get breakfast. Hey i'll go this and she's like nah i gotta go. You know. i'll see you later. Have some breakfast hanging out blah blah blah. But it's it's not. It's not one of these things. Where i think the thing that's actually interesting about. It is seeing the the flip on this and seeing the do. It's normally a guy being i. I gotta be meeting. You know. I gotta go right but seeing the yeah seeing the flip but also seeing her..

"Five for one thing. I don't think you should probably know fence like. I'm sure you're a smart guy very. Yeah but still that your age all you can fuck and have a heart attack like doing that. Shed like jumping through fucking like wormholes and shit. But but i do. I like his point of view. I may not agree with it. But i think it's interesting where he's like. We need to stop wasting money on high in the sky abstractions and start spending on practical measurable ways to improve the lives of the people who are after all footing the bill as and that's an interesting way of like should should everything be profitable. Should everything be practical. You know but you always pure research you know there. There's something interesting where he is going to the left and jodie foster's kind of going to the right where it's pure research versus practical. It's this interesting kind of like dance. They do the whole movie. And it kind of feels like mcconaghy's in the middle of that skill as well as well as i get. We need technology. We need signs but at the same time we can kind of you know to spend our lives looking looking at screen to looking for lot. You know it might seem like a waste. You know But i love. Tom scares point of view. In this movie. Though it's really good. Yes especially his his dialogue. It's killer man. Yeah it's very realistic. Actually i think how he's how he's like a you know all about like the business and like looking at it from that point of view what one thing i do really like speaking from like a cinematography. Point of view is house. Did the shot from her running up the stairs when her dad collapses to get the medication. And it's sort of one shot into flo flows into the mirror that may not be like super like these days but like back in the day. I i thought that was really cool our mojo dude. Yeah it's impossible. You know like. I actually watched. There's like a forty second video on youtube of somebody. I don't know who it is explaining it. I think if somebody yup. I don't know if it's a cinematographer or rappers meccas but he's like yeah so basically what we did was. We had a camera man like we had to paint his arm out of the frame and she's not reaching for like anything that there's really nothing there he's like we. We blue screen her in the foreground and as like oh shit so everything behind her is fake and i was like that is fucking cool man as i get set to that seen as such a mind. Fuck when you see a white. What i remember watching that go on the whole ho-ho-hold on it definitely took me a second to like. What the fuck I'm sorry go ahead know. Go for i was gonna say like i think one thing that made this movie so grand for me and like why love it so much is because it was directed by robbers. Meccas it so it just has that feel mean you know back to the future like all my gosh like you know that movie is just like one of the just. It feels so good to watch that at such a good movie. And i think you know you watch a castaway and just the work that he put in with. Tom hanks about that movie. So it's america's has really a devoted to making he has that hollywood timeless feel In my opinion..

"Know he is kind of like that agnostic side of things. You know there. There's something like that but also a religious figure I don't think quite prominent enough to be an adviser to the president. What the fuck. And like i kind of laugh at that room like this guy is an adviser like i know. The president has spiritual advisers. And you know every president does but this guy he wrote like one book about like humanity beyond technology and he's a spiritual now to like the like. I don't know that that was one of my biggest like yeah. I can't go there with you on that one. I can't by. I can't buy cheese. Dick mcconaughey here is telling the president like hey man you just gotta go in there and be like this is like stupid ass. I don't know he's okay. His character is kinda cool but he's got some doozy's some lies. I don't love his portrayal of them. But it done you know. I like it because she is kind of frigid. She's giving him the vibes at most of the time is now fridges. Because you know to be frigid but just kind of. That's her character thing of like. I don't really get close to people. Like i don't really get like super committed to stuff you know just because your mom dad both died. She probably like if i'm not you know strapped down. If they're not committed anything. I won't be hurt when that person's gone Kind of thing. But but i think that having him kind of more mellow guy is a good juxtaposition with her. You know what i mean. Yeah one of my favorite kind of Dialogues in the movie is actually when matthew mcconaughey is doing the cnn interview. With larry king. And you know he's sort of just giving a an of his his book like the technology is kind of taking away from our lives like that whole speech that he's making it. It's just so cool because it's so far ahead of its time. Because i was just sitting there watching us as like man. You just wait till like twenty twenty when like the smartphones of taken over social media. Yeah yeah so. That was like man what that's a. That's really a cool thing that that was being said and stated in that way Back in the nineties but you know no one had any idea how invasive it would become. Yeah but the there is something that i do like you know from this. He knows what said he is. He's trying to find drum land but he gives her the compass and she. I love this. He's like hey here we go l. free tobacco him. She's like this might save your life. Someday and at the end she gets out of her seat. Get the compass and and she said in the seat it would fucking kilger as like. Oh that's interesting. The compass was actually saying that kind of saved her life. I think that's i think that's pretty cool. And there's a lot of cool shit once she gets in that chamber this really cool like symbolism there that i really enjoy but this were getting introduced Tom skerritt as a david drummond. I you know there. He doesn't really he. He definitely has like an like an like an arc in this where he goes from one degree. You know i really that bad. He's just kind of an asshole you know. And then he's trying to take credit for things that are not his and he's trying to be the person to go and it's like dude..

"It's what you don't see that really sells it So it may be that in a sense of being timeless making this. Move your story last longer. The fact that The vega nhs kinda see her and the human race maybe not being quite ready To have interaction with A higher being or will high a higher intelligence. Thanks so you know. They're just making it easier on us. We're here you know i. I think there's a statement made you know how we get through this loneliness feeling this empty space through knowing that we're all here together right and one. We're ready the words when the human species is ready. You know we'll take the next step. So i guess it works in that sense but it is it is a lot of it is disappointing and i think a lot of people were kind of disappointed with that ending. 'cause you know everything is set up you know and it just what we're like on a beach and like now like no one believes her and it's kinda it falls to the whole like faith counter. You have to have faith in what she's saying Sort of like. Yeah it kind of goes back to the religious argument there You know that's it. So i don't know i think it could have been done a little better. I'm not sure what. I would suggest doing With the ending. But i i do like how they khanna kept it. A little vague. 'cause you know with like for example back to a rival you know you see the tentacles. It's a little weird like yeah it's it's a little it's a little jarring you know. But when they're in the smoke and shit and you can't quite make out of like fucking. I like that but yeah i just i. I love this movie so much. That i can't even really like. It's hard for me to nitpick it. There's just really kind of goofy stuff. you know. The scientists these goal real quirky. You know we're hawaiian shirts. And you know. Just kinda goofy nineties tropes and stuff like that. But i think that for the most part i can look pass at because the movie as a as a whole is a lot more interesting than that I it's just it's it's hard for me. It's almost perfect to me..

"I don't really think there's on a lot of movies like this. Maybe like close encounters over third kind. Like kinda comes close but not really It's just that kind of this movie. It's not. It's kind of scifi. But not really i mean it is but yes but no. It's definitely not horror. But it's there's i can't think of another movie like contact doesn't mean that it's perfect their stuff about it that i don't i don't absolutely enjoy. You know there's some hokey stuff in here and we can get into that as we watch it. But i fucking loved this movie and it it just leaves me with just just the thought and the gravity of you being the one to cross space and time in see these people and be the first person ever to do this and it might be bad at might be good like the weight of just having first contact like. Oh my god that's that's so insane and you know just It's i personally do believe there's probably some kind of life. I'm not saying there's aliens. I'm just ended. There's probably something i mean goes so far. You know that's my personal thing. That's not for everybody. But i think the probability is high at least So this was really interesting to me. And i just loved the fact that it's kind of bittersweet too because i think carl sagan get to see it. I think he died before this came out. Yeah he died. I think in ninety six maybe or a little bit earlier Downs right right. But yeah i mean. He wrote the novel and So i i was. I'm a huge fan of this movie. Huge fan of carl sagan and You know i think was really ahead of his time with this novel You know and he was like a big science educator. So i think a lot of what he was trying to do here is just to kind of educate the public in an entertaining way But one thing about carl sagan. He was pretty critical over. The film. industry actually There's a view interviews of him talking about or criticizing the film industry for spending too much money on films. Actually i've seen him I i don't remember the exact quote but also he was on johnny carson and he was talking about star wars and he was talking about like i don't know sort of the political correctness of star wars and how he wanted to see.

You know what goes through the mind of a place kicker at the NFL level it really at any level. I mean, you got to be a special dude, you know, Take that job on. But you know you're is 2020 season. Has been a little bit sketchy again. By Matt Prater standards. He's missed six field goals. Ah, lot of those from long distance, but we just weren't used. So now you're being called upon to kick a 59 yarder to win a ball game and, uh, me, I'd be in the fetal position over in the corner of the stadium somewhere. But he rises to the occasion. Any makes it happen, You know really unbelievable. Before we went toe Coach Patricia in Lomas Ah, big part point in this game. The TV folks showed 29 seconds left in the first quarter. They were working on Matthew Stafford's throwing hand and didn't know exactly where he injured it, but he had it taped up. On DA If it turns out, everything was okay. 24 33 276 Yards, three touchdowns. No pics r rating of 1 27.8. Matthew Stafford again rises to the occasion partner. Yeah, he did. No doubt about that he is is tough as they come. I mean, Steve, you and I have talked about it so many times in the last few years. Anybody to question that guy's toughness. You're out your mind, and he takes it very personal as well. And you know what? There's word that he's going to go get some x rays on that finger and and see what happens. But, Steve, I'll tell you what, Uh, That guy. Another tip.

"All three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, and today we're talking about how they were lucky to win the game. Well, they work. I know I should be pretty reassured. Should Lee, but I think Well, yeah. I mean, I think so. Because look, toe win a game like that. You're going to have to have a couple things happen. First of all. Remember this hasn't been talked about very much, either. Matt Prater misses a field goal kicks it off the upright right in the fourth quarter, which you know at that point, they have a chance to extend their leave. They don't Which puts the Bears in position When they score. They go up by four murmur. Matthew Stafford drives him down in the 16 yard line at the end of the game. Where you know it could have been. It wasn't but it could have been a much different scenario there, But, yeah, I mean, look that passes right there. Rookie running back. Drops the ball. If he catches it, they win. But sometimes the winning game like that you have to have those, and certainly the Bears have had enough of those go against them over the years. How did Tulowitzki do overall because I checked out for the third quarter and work took a nap. Woke up Tio to a terrible score. But it seemed like he was throwing the ball well in the first half, and the Receiver's We're letting them down a little bit there. Some of that he will be one very accurate. Then. First day here was so I'm the only one on the tour bus keys. Bandwidth Well here his his first half numbers eight of 20 for 110 yards. And ah rating of 58.3, and for the game, he ended up. Let's see he was 20. And I just had it in front of me, and I just misplaced it, but he he He had a much obviously had a great four quarter three touchdown passes in the fourth. He was accurate. And his receivers made good catches for him to Detroit's not a great team, but they did win a game on the road. And next week, it's the Giants and we could do Our advance scouting on that tonight 20th 36 to 42 You say he's a lot better in the second half. They've ended. Thanks for stopping by. OK, It's the wind trust is that you listen to me. It's the John Williams Show here on 7 20. The days are getting shorter and you can feel it in the air. Yes,.

Do Footballs Fly Farther in Denver?

"Imagine a fine afternoon in Denver the mile high city behind quarterback Peyton Manning's explosive offensive. The Denver Broncos have amassed attended to record today. They're hosting the Tennessee titans squad. That's lost three of its past four games. The titans. Have put up a good fight over the first half hour of game. Play three seconds before. Halftime. The score is Tennessee Twenty-one Denver seventeen. And her Broncos kicker. Matt Prater trotting out to the Denver forty six yard line. He readies himself for the play of his life. A mighty kick. Sends the ball soaring end over end across the field as a nervous crowd holds its breath. And then the place erupts with ease the ball sails through the yellow crossbar in Tennessee's endzone. It's a longest completed field goal in NFL history. A perfectly made sixty four yard drill. A for metric friends. That's about fifty eight meters perhaps emboldened by prayers heroics. The Broncos go on to crush the titans of the second half, thus clinching a playoff berth. The game. I just described took place on December eighth twenty thirteen today. Prater sixty four yards still holds the all-time distance record. Although his accomplishment has never been bested. Jaw-dropping football kicks are nothing. New in the rocky mountains. Three of the five longest field goals that the NFL has ever seen were made in Denver's mile high stadium. Broncos great Jason Elam nailed a sixty three yarder there in one thousand nine hundred eight a feat that was matched by Sebastian Janikowski when his Oakland Raiders came to town thirteen years later, but to hear some sports fans tell it those three kicks should have Asterix attached the official elevation of Colorado's capital is exactly one mile. That's one thousand six hundred nine meters above sea level. No other NFL cities. It's anywhere close to that. Altitude of the runner up is Glendale Arizona, which is just one thousand feet or three hundred meters. Above sea level Denver's elevation does affect the sporting events up there when football's kicked Broncos home game. It's apt to cover more distance than it would in lower elev-. Nations. And this doesn't just affect three point field goals. Kickoffs tend to go farther as well. There's a book called football physics. The science of the game by one university of Nebraska, professor Timothy gay for it. He ran the numbers on eight different teams from cities that sit more or less at sea level like the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots that played at least one road game in Denver during the two thousand one or two thousand two seasons. He found that in those two years the visiting kickers from low elevation towns. Enjoyed some great numbers when they went to Denver up in Colorado. There kickoffs traveled seventy point one yards. That's sixty four meters on average back in their respective home fields. The average kickoff distance dropped by seven point three yards. That's six point six meters to understand those numbers will need to talk about air density pretend as I'm sure you want to that you have a jet pack, if you were to take off at sea level and travel through earth's atmosphere in a straight line up the density of the air around you would get lower as your altitude. Creased? This is due to a universal law as the distance between two objects grows the gravitational pull they exert on each other lessons and air molecules are not exempt the pole of earth's gravity is more strongly felt by molecules that are closer to the planet's center at or below sea level, gravitational attraction pacts the molecules tightly together and the weight of the molecules sitting higher up in the atmosphere really bears down on the ones occupying low elevations in consequence the air, it self grows, denser, the closer you get to the surface way up in the mile high city, the Air's only about eighty two percent as dense as it is at sea level a ball kicked skyward in Denver will therefore encounter fewer air molecules than it would in Miami. That's important to note because air molecules create drag drag is a force that pushes against solid bodies as they travel through fluids or gases, a punted or kicked football will run headlong into a steady barrage of air molecules their combined drag will slow it down sometimes dramatic. Early. But remember in ludens, the air molecules are fewer and farther between therefore football's can and often do encounter less drag in Denver Denver's altitude impacts baseball as well. A physicist and Red Sox fan. Alan Nathan reports that fly balls at chorus field. Go proximity five percent farther than they do at Fenway park in Boston yet kicking on the Broncos home turf won't guarantee success for kickers or punters altitude reduces air density, and by extension drag but cold weather increases it and boy can Colorado get chilly. A twenty eleven survey of NFL statistical records found that in outdoor games. Played at temperatures of thirty nine degrees Fahrenheit, that's four degrees celsius or lower field goal. Accuracy drops by one point seven percent while the average partly is about one yard shorter than normal. These findings hold true throughout the league. So it's to Matt Prater credit that his record-breaking field goals split the uprights from sixty four yards out. Even though Denver. It's temperature had fallen. Just fourteen degrees Fahrenheit that's negative ten celsius at the time. Whatever the weather kicking specialists need to be on guard against complacency Denver's reputation as the mecca of ultra-long field goals is well established across the league. According to players that mile high mystique can trick visiting kickers into overestimating their abilities. We could say that when in doubt always air on the side of

"Well, I mean, you know there was a kicker back in the in the the day. I don't remember what years, but I think it was in the nineteen four or might have been the fifties, but he had half a foot long ago. It was like sixty s seventy s? They might even have been sixties. Yeah, but he actually had a advantage because his foot was squared off and it was easy for him to carry all because he had a. He was one of the record holders for longest kit. He has Denver until somebody broken in Denver, which I can't remember if it was the Matt Prater or if he had like the sixty two before Jason Elam and whoever had sixty three got the everybody had it for a while. And yeah, like Brett is funny. I mean he kicked like everybody like this by them, but it was so funny because they just run from straight behind the ball just thoat. Yeah. Feet and just totally. But he was even when it was a team that had like the the right guard was also the kicker like that was the best. Man, sports used to Sut. No sports used to rock is what you mean. Will.
