I cannot believe this film was nineteen eighty-seven. So thirty three years ago is when full metal jacket I hit theaters and Stanley Kubrick one of his finest films and did an amazing job in this in so many other TV and film that I've enjoyed him and pleased to have to talk about full metal jacket and more Matthew Modine how lawyer Matthew? I'm doing very well. Thank you, rich. Oh, thanks for. A have to get you a Matthew Modine mug there for the for the your collection.

So maybe maybe is there. Do you have any? What do you have an item from full metal jacket? That you still have. That that you're proud of having. Do you have any? Do you have anything from that? Movie. Senate have Mickey Mouse, watch and the peace button from my my that I were throughout the Vietnam section of. Movies Button and. Mickey Mouse Watch called out for wondering if that's a your version of a sick joke correct from that film. Yeah. Actually I forgot I also have my glasses. I have a pair of to those glasses. I mean. It is such a classic film Matthew and I just WANNA START I guess with the broad question of what it was like to be in the employee if you will of Stanley Kubrick for that movie. Way Way. You can't compare the experience of working full metal jacket with any of the other experiences I've had working films just because of the sheer length of time my wife, and I were in England. My son was born there was almost twenty two months almost two years of of of being in England with with with Mr Kubrick and the experience was extraordinary he The good news is that there's an APP there's called full metal jacket diary was a book, and then it was made into an out by one of the genius has it Apple Computer young men named Adam Adam rockoff He took the assets that were in my book, my diary and the photos, and he did high red scans of them and then had me record the the the well I guess. Let's call it the dialogue in the book. and he made it into this amazing award winning what they call the APP you mentally that's free right now to celebrate the release of the book. So if you have an IPAD, if you can borrow an IPAD, the IPAD full metal jacket diary is free right now. So that kind of covers, all of the the stories that that I had while I was making the film in and it's from the point of view of a young twenty, four, twenty, five year old kid who's gone off to work with. The arguably one of the greatest film directors to ever get behind motion picture camera. So and again, it'd been seven years since its previous won't it was his previous film was the shining. He had not put out a film since that classic and now here he is putting his take if you will on the Vietnam War experience. What did he do to you guys on the set to make you feel like you're really in the you know one? Well, he he wasn't like a to director and and the only person that was kind of. Like that, I think was Vincent and off Rove who kind of went into Kerik turn kind of stayed in character he played private pile who you know shoots himself in the latrine at the end of the first bootcamp sequence. Of. But but Stanley Kubrick. To everybody's shock and sometimes dismay with not a horrible mean. person he was cruel but he was fair. that that you. He said the reason he has to do so many takes is because So often times actress don't know their lines and when when he says that doesn't mean that they don't. You know they haven't memorized show up in and repeat their lines that knowing their lines had to be something that was is. Unconscious as you know, a a marine recruit who could take apart their rifle and put it back together with a blindfold on that you you you had to. You had to really understand what it was. You were saying to the point where there was no other logical thing for you to say even dry evenly Ernie played the drill instructor. Had To. Work on memorizing lines. That he had contributed to the script. These were these these are things that he said that were written down and put into the script but then he had to memorize them as an actor would be able to repeat them over and over and from different angles. You know that that a real drill instructor doesn't Doesn't do that. You know which leads me was a real structure. So he had had to go through the processes have been able to repeat those lines and repeat performance multiple times with. What they call continuity that if if he reaches up and scratches his head the scene and they change the camera angle, you have to reach up and scratch your head in in the same fashion so that you can edit the movie together with continuity. You've all we've all seen those mistakes and movies right where somebody's holding a cup of coffee and one angle and you cut to another wranglings not holding the coffee. He's taking a puff on a cigarette from this angle and there's no cigarette in his hand and the next. Shane. So, what would be the average number of takes you? You had full metal jacket. Kubrick math I like to think of our Howard. Or. Let's play cowboy in the news in boot camp in the Vietnam sequence. When we get ready to go into the into that place, the square where the sniper is that just picking us off one by one. So there was a before before they're when eight ball gets up and goes into the square and gets shot we were at that wall are listen I don't care if this is the greatest seen in the history of moviemaking I'm going to tell everybody that I was at this wall for one month. So that sequence, which is probably. I don't know maybe three or four four minutes of film we. Walked for a month get out of here. But I mean do you want to say did you ever did you ever want to say hey, a or? Even here in two thousand, twenty, Mr.

"I have to give a big shout out to Leon Batali. If you haven't seen the documentary about hit him in his life with Stanley Kubrick, it's called film worker yeah. Story Bernadino. It's fantastic. Film Leon to tally is the person who's been responsible for all of these. Restorations of Stanley Kubrick's film that that I say without exaggeration he always tells me to shut up and don't say that. But Emily, steel stood on Leon shoulders that there is not one aspect of film making that he does not understand he's a national treasure. He is a what he's done for Kubrick's library and his estate is. A beyond beyond the beyond and so Leon he was the person who who Supervised the four K. restoration of full metal jacket and it's amazing when you shoot on film and you go into that negative and digitally pull out information you see things that you never never never saw when it was just a thirty five millimeter prints. Yeah, it's astonished. Yet all the information is there. Why People who people think digital ously, be all and all. But when you shoot on film, that's the source. Yes. That is the source from that. You can draw as you say so much. We love physical media. We love things you can touch and hold, and there's something very special about that. And I can't for you as an actor. I can't quite imagine what it would be like to have someone hand you a film canister and go. Here you go. Here's your here's you you know and you can pull it out and look at it and look at every scene I still think it's magic I really do I mean that's absolutely the case with the full metal jacket diary. Right Adam Rockoff who supervised the digital transfer of my negatives and created the full metal jacket diary APP, which is free to all of your listeners right now as you can you can if you have an IPAD, you can get it for free to celebrate the release of the four. K. Full Metal Jacket in the in the anniversary of film but. Head? Had He not? Had negatives.

Have a better chance of filling the drive in. So one of the feature sets that I saw was the making of Oliver. Richard Lester Film. And and I realized that you know I thought that the people that I saw movies that they were actually doing the you know the Sean Connery was really a super super spy. You know agent for the British government and then I, realized that they were actress they were playing roles when I saw the documentary of the making of Oliver seeing these kids learning their lines and learning to dance learning to sing the songs and I thought Oh. Wow, that's what I'm supposed to be doing. So in Orem, Utah I started taking tap dancing lessons I joined the school's Glee Club and. Started, pursuing acting in if I can tell this really quickly I told my aunt take attack. Who? Was a survivor of the Harz Germany A. Hungarian to. To to escape, I should say to New York City with the dream of being an actor and was part of the the Actors Group Theater and So when I was about eleven or twelve years old told a alice sh- Meyer that I wanted to be an actor and she took me to a used bookstore and she bought me Stanislavsky's Constantine Stanislavsky's inactive prepares. Course I couldn't even pronounce Stanislav at. have any. Be Able to interpret what he was talking about in in the book but held onto it and I kept trying to read it trying to understand it and then as I told you the story that when I saw. Little big man I wanted to be a human being. So I I'm doing plays in school and singing dancing. And then I decided I'm going to move to New York City and take a run at at being an actor and I got a job working in a restaurant I was salad man than I was the pastry chef, the chef and and. I listened to the waiters and they were they would be talking about Ibsen and Chekhov in or Miller in Tennessee Williams, and I went oh my God. I want to go into a profession that I don't know anything about and so I asked one of the guys I said, where could I learn about all these playwrights where could get this education that you guys have and they said? You should go to Stella. Adler she'd really like you. So I got an audition to go and meet the famous Stella Adler I was sitting outside and they called me into the room and she turned around and she looked at me and she If. You've come here for me to teach you how to be a movie star. You should turn around and leave right now I don't teach that..

"When i was a little boy you know or having to walk home park yeah the experiences that you have in life the things that inform you in the in the visions in the way that you see things in the way that you choose to interpret things are based on the experiences in your life so you know harper lee and her book to kill a mockingbird she says you never truly understand another person till you get inside their skin and move around in it so that's what we're doing is as a musician understand why beethoven wrote those notes with the how to interpret that song and that's what we're doing is actors is his climbing into the the the ideas in the thoughts of that writer and trying to figure out how to interpret that character and bring him to life i i want to ask about because i'm i'm a doer and i'm trying to learn how to be a beer and i'll explain what that means but i just started taking voice lessons because just because the the up that i do like i fuck up my voice a lot because i talk loudly and so i was trying to learn how to sing better and speak better and she said oh the doc in your throat diaphragm and your stomach yeah and you have to let the air pass through your throat and she said you're breath becomes the song which i thought was a really profound thing and i said yeah but it doesn't feel like doing anything and she says it's not supposed to and i think the same thing with acting performing disciplined we condition ourselves to it in order to be doing something that we have to feel like we are doing something as opposed to just being so what is the challenge like with acting what is overcoming that idea so it doesn't you know because you can tell when someone's like i'm acting up air versus when they're just being whatever part of the ganic role there were being the most important thing to learn in your life to be to exist you know the there are certain excuse me artists who who innately know that they at early age who they are what they're jenness with they're geniuses and enter comfortable with with who they are in most of us go through life uncomfortable and feeling inadequate and feeling that you know we look at other people's lives and think oh if i only looked like that if i only had that if i only behaved more like that person i'd be cool too and you know i think that you know you either are elvis presley or you're not elvis presley elvis presley was you comfortable with his sexuality and i could never play elvis presley because as i say you either are elvis presley you're you're not you can't play that kind of sets z. confident human being if you don't possess that confidence in that sense sensuality inside of you the the blue news singers say that you can't sing the blues unless you've lived the blues right you know that and i think that there's there's something to that but learning to be ah is is to be comfortable with who you are and not carrying about what i mean there's there's books books books and rows and rows and rows in the story self help books in the bookstores telling you how to be comfortable with who you are accepting who you are and ah it is a difficult thing to do but but the easiest thing about acting is looking your partner in the eye in telling the truth the truth of that character and be as truthful as you can that you don't have to be somebody else you've i have to have to be comfortable with who you are and then and then then you can put some gravy on it and you know the with the way you dress in the way that you speak week and and how you choose to interpret the role but you have to be truthful to who you are as a human being that's interesting because it makes me think that maybe just people who even don't wanna be actors maybe should take an acting class and then apply the techniques to themselves because when you're studying a character it's a little more one dimensional than and exploring your own life as you know the character in a film has a limited series of motivations and wants needs you can't understand what that is i guess and and then you can make choices and tell that truth to the other person like you said and so then i wonder if you'd be able to take that in your own life and go kay well if i was a character yeah what do i want yes you i want those things and what's truth you know and then move from that place i think it would be an interesting skill set to be able to apply to your life i agree with you yeah and what do you teach that to is your class like is it the same group of people do do a course or is it just like anyone who wants to show up on these days can show up for how how is it set up well i there so there's a lot of students from the new york film academy that they come adapt to audition for the class so that they call it i mean it always sounds pretentious to me but they call it a master class and so they have to audition and they bring in very good students but i if i'm in a restaurant and i meet a waiter and waitress and i think that they're interested in their actors i always i invite but dozen people to come to the lasts for free because i i don't think that you should profit from sharing information it's like an open source sort of this is what i learned and also in a way passing down from stella adler to all these different people that formed the unique molecule of matthew modine onto other people yeah but you know in yoga class is called a yoga it's called the practice because it's not something that you ever master and i believe that's true of acting it's his to practice it's something that you never mass after that that you're always well you should be always trying to learn and and continued to develop an and get gimmicky you know but i mean that's an actor that not a movie star you know just alone is genius at what what he does he does what he does well and he he has made movies that have made billions of dollars a result of a clint clint eastwood is a good example that i mean one of his most famous lines demand has to know his limitations clint eastwood knows his limitations as an actor as a performer and he he stays in that pocket you know it's like if you were a pitcher oh you through you know a slider and fastball you know you're not going to try to throw sinkers or throw something that you're not you're not good at throwing because you guys a hit your ball out of the park right so but i i've never re i you know i mean it would it's wonderful to be a movie star because as you can get projects greenland you know you can do your those projects that you're passionate about but i've always been really more interested in what filmmaking and storytelling doing theater the that that it's an opportunity for me to learn about who i am and what it is to be a citizen of the planet you know the extraordinary kind of opportunity to learn i've flown b seventeen of sailed in america's cup yacht i've worked with all these incredible act i mean actors and directors i've mentioned writers michael hair who wrote i think one of the best books about vietnam called dispatches became very good friend of mine brought the the the voice over in doc ellipse now the alan parker i mean all these extraordinary people these artists and stuff that you have you have the ability to due to work with and share ideas within and then the access that that gives you two other artists you know having a met david boy in david wanting to paint with me because oh my god i mean th th that it's he gives you entree to such a extraordinary group of people that that it's magical it's an amazing amazing profession to be a part of your but i think you're right about the movie star trek is limiting because i think at a certain point that becomes more about maintaining a level of commercial success rather than me because is a lot of big movie stars i'm like oh but they're such great character actors it'd be great if they allow themselves the ability to just disappear into a small film rather than having to try to make a blockbuster or to be a huge movie star knows tom cruise is a good example of that i mean the that tropic thunder or some of the phenomenal yeah meaty roles that he's done yeah i in the where you saw his chops a couple times where he got out of where his big movie star kind of comforts on the color of mining i thought he was fascinated yeah and and the movie he the jamie foxx where you know where he was a hitman jimmy fox's driving them around los angeles things killing people yeah i don't remember what i remember what that's called collateral yeah yeah because he why think so the tropic thunder character les grossman i think he's doing like a limited series on qube which is a new like shortfall and platform and it is it's like both people stepping outside their comfort zone trying new things but you have done so many different kinds of you mentioned all those directors but you've done so many different kinds of films as well and you know if you want if you want to kubrick film you've got that and then you know listen i'm a vision quest fan like die saw that movie at the right age was like just barely getting into i was a teenager at the time and so that's a different that's a totally different type of movie experience but one that to me he is just as meaningful as a cougville yeah you know it's it's an extraordinary it's a great movie it's not just a coming of age movie it's it's it's it's a wonderful movie i love you like vision quest i'm so glad to hear that i'm so glad to hear that when you did that was because streamers based on david ray play mike nichols directed on broadway and we won a best actor award at the venice film fest level so that that broke me that that that got me noticed and then herald becker director vision quests saw that movie and he said you know i think you're really terrific actor but can you do ten pushups because that was so skinny you know i was i was still in drama school smoking cigarettes thinking freaking gallons of coffee on the subway and people say where are you from i say oh i live on the upper west side no no but where are you from i said i live here yeah not where you word meditative here do you use the word yoga it seems to me that you might be someone who practices mindfulness and so it was that something that you always did that so mindfulness is extraordinary the most i you know i don't say it's in a in a you know because i'm trying to kiss the ass of ladies but the most powerful people that have influenced me in my life have been the women in my life for my my my grandmother zella the that that planted those date palm at china ranch in death valley near shoshoni her first child burned to death in smoke house it was playing with matches and burned to death and she couldn't understand why if there was a loving god it would kill the child so she was not happily married grandfathers so she burned the house down took her daughter and left and traveled across the united states joining every religion come on i read a book by a sit arthur by herman hess that kind of make made me think that's what.

"Yeah I was having mangas order city doesn't matter how big you are Camden example or that cam is a message at eight six three four one seven four four we're back with Matthew Modine Matthews it's pretty much been a household name for at least thirty five years I don't know could see a math you could see when what was your first sort of big movie wait here was full metal jacket the first one that was probably the first big big movie vision quest was before that Mrs so photo with Mel Gibson thank Heaton was so successful but it was fun to work on Private School with Phoebe cates oh that's right that all the classics that's back when and Bubis worth saying and movies and Bubis is enough to get you to go out on a Saturday night and that movie there's an actor that was in that movie that was sort of the poor man's John Belushi was guy's name Michael Zurich yes and he would do all those kind of us guys going to dress like a girl with the Harry legs and stuff and he was kind of a GM John Belushi Eight time here but I don't know whatever became of him he lives in New York he's e- contacts me on twitter everyone actually private school just came out on Blue Ray and I think this is a callback from Michael Zorc he's GonNa play it for all it's worth the movie see this movie Miss Virginia available in select theaters on digital and on demand. Tomorrow as you as you hear this I've not seen it because some the link or whatever trying to send me screwed up so you tell us about the movie well it's a story about a woman they Miss Virginia Virginia walled board it's based on a true story about her life and she's in inner city African American in Washington DC WHO her son was in trouble and the schools like they are in most a public schools across the country are kinda overcrowded and underfunded and does she wanted to create an opportunity for her son to get a better education and as she started to explore the private schools they cost the the same amount of money to send your child to a private school as it does to a public school so they you know they wanted to create this voucher system so you could choose you can take the money in in school tax money that was allotted for public school and use that towards a private school so she has empowered and changed the lives of thousands of kids in the in the in the Washington DC here Area well I'm glad I'm this is the subject because it's one I've always talked about I liked vouchers I like school choice my feeling is like when you kind of go well yeah but some of these charter schools are some of these vouchers or some of these things and I know there's a difference some of them aren't as good or some like there's always gonna be that but I'm saying in total having a kid have a choice and then create competition for the public schools like hey you got up your game now because people are GonNa go cross the street and go to another school I like that it sounds kind of American doesn't it it sounds American thing do you have Max pat you have that drop of I think we had Barbara Boxer was interviewing the thing that's crazy about this act is democrats should be all in on this subject because it helps the kids it helps the week kids the inner city kids Mike Kids we live in lock and Yada the school district is good a little too good luck now I have the dumbest kids in the school rush it out a little bit we don't my kids don't need vouchers but the kids that all the politicians are constantly talking about the inner city these kids they don't stand a chance at the test they're not getting good teachers and they need more funding they're against vouchers wire they against vouchers hypocritical yeah because they're mobbed up with the unions and the teachers unions and they don't WanNa piss off the teachers unions and the teachers unions don't want vouchers which is I get it you don't want competition I'm sure United like southwest yeah but guess who wins Yeah we do now so I get it you don't want it but up your game and who's who's been up in there than South West over the last twenty five years or anybody because you'll die if you don't look at the industry where everything's sucks their play the airline is the price is going down it does help you get there faster you got you got sorry you have her and her daughter Nicole sorry we blindside vest but Max Brad SCO hadn't asked Dumbo drew asking her about me and vouchers or school choices sorry and what's wrong with school vouchers he wants to know why not school vouchers if people wanNA use the free I'll tell you the problem with it it's taxpayer money I'm and it's going to schools away from schools it's money taking out of schools where ninety five percent of the children the country go I have no problem with charters but I think to take people out to private school it's taxpayers funding that's going there and I think that's wrong I would the atom atom update your spiel dude wants that's like ten twelve year old debate really interests yeah Mike funny the little more progressive search all right I'm going to update my she'll with I I don't have a dog GonNa fight but it seems to me that when I see these things in these inner city kids and they're all looking just the MOMMAS just dying for them to get that voucher and go to that school what's what's with a choice I don't I don't know why we don't get to choose our taxes are spent you know the the when I think that at the end of the year when we're paying our taxes we should as citizens have the opportunity I'd like this much donated to public schools I'd like this much donated to public health and the million Terry the that we should it shouldn't be determined for us as citizens how our tax money is spent also this notion I by the way Barbara boxer daughter went to school Marin county so very hard knocks wrong side of the track wrong side of the bay tough out there man sows Alito here's the thing here's the thing yes each child gets you know nine thousand dollars or thirteen thousand the high end twenty two or twenty six thousand per child to go to a school in yes the money does go away from the public school because it's getting a voucher going to a better school but that's not your money and that's not the schools money that's the money we as citizens have set aside for that child to be educated and if we think that thirteen thousand dollars could get that kid more education down the street then that's not taking money away from anybody that's US getting more value for our tax paying dollar Yes yes Barbara Boxer surely she should understand that and her advanced age but now it doesn't work for her all right now obviously if you minus the teachers unions and Barbara Boxer's getting votes then she probably would be Lord I I I would assume so what are your I'm Lookin' down the page here and I'm seeing that Liam niece and taught you how to fly fresh yeah I don't even know where that fun fact came back but he actually didn't teach me how to fly fish my grandfather and my uncle did up northern California fly fishing for steelhead trout in the Hayfork River and the shadow of Mount Shasta that's that's where I learned to fly fish Baliem Avid fly Fisher and we both had places upstate New York I've sold mine subsequently I am lime disease almost killed me but I I don't know I don't know where that came from but I don't mind me this kind of sexy Liam Neeson he's a dear friend and you know girls seem to get really excited when I saw what's going on with IMDB Hey Chris doing entrance where on the bigger Dick Than Liam Niece Fatimah put it in there and we'll cakes and fly fish is yeah you can just see if we can his payments it's so long is ball's like rail now a lot of people love fly fishing and it doesn't seem so Jimmy Kimmel love fly fishing and Huey Lewis loves fly fishing and so does Tucker Carlson so it seems to have a lot of range politically is it the love of the at home with nature and the sort of accession of it or or do we love eating fish and if so or are you tell me what you love about most of the people tell you they catch and release right so at then I don't understand it so it's not for the Food Liam does a full relief every time you don't WanNa be downstream and upstream with the Oh really yeah you know I mean it's dangerous you go out in the waiters and you stand the middle of a river if you if you stumble you know they can fill up and then your legs are suddenly doc anchors and you're stuck out in the middle of the river if you get too close to the to the shore and there's trees you're always catching the line in the in the bushes of the trees when you're casting so I mean I wouldn't do it if I wasn't hungry I really you know I feel like most people do we just want to meditate sound of the river and stuff and this literally gives them something to do probably fell in love with the river runs through direct by Robert men in their privately desiring to be Brad Pitt Yep that's right how that's what's happened how long does one I went with the Kimmel several years ago on one of these things and it was like I felt the same way that I feel about golfing it's like too too much time just being out on the river nine hours it's like too much river for me to see like you know an hour hour and fifteen minutes all full circle didn't in shortcuts but you are borrowed Alvin didn't Huey Lewis wasn't he and I fly fishing fishing movie opens with the yeah the whole him out that's like the beginning of the NCAA him he lewis fitting really yeah I never started fly fishing oh brings all together all alone don't he loves the the dam the dam fly fishing and in Kimmel does this well but again I don't know if they love it they disliked the whole ultimate yeah now which I wouldn't argue against I don't get the golfing thing I I've tried a I don't I don't understand I like miniature golf you know that's fun yeah I've I've I've had this conversation with Dr drew a thousand times he just comes who's got the time it takes up so much time and I'm like I think that's kind of the plan and then every once in a while a guy golfs with his wife and I'm like well now you're flying in the face your own plan but so sorry and carpentry as well is that true well I now I know where that came from it was people magazine I would they see they came to my house 'cause they wanted they insisted on doing the story at my house and I said I wanNa let you in my house but I was building I was rebuild clean a old farmhouse in upstate New York and so they came and you know I they took pictures of me pounding nails and I remember they wanted me to put all the nail out like pulling the nail but the way that the photographer was trying to stage the photograph so the Hammer I said that any carpenters GonNa look at me and say what an asshole uh-huh because the hammer would have hit me in the face you know but it was for the frame of the picture and I I can't do that because it just makes me look like an idiot did you and I have dinner many years ago I think we did yes and I don't I cannot recall many the specific six I remember probably go back to like none of them nineteen ninety eight nineteen ninety seven and somehow it may be an agent or something said Matthew Modine once talked to you and I said Okay we'll have dinner I used to do everything on my way into love line so love line started it can we could sit down at eight have a good hour and a half and then I just head off to love line which is sort of how I recall it and you must have had an idea for a project but I don't remember what the project was don't think we ever did it I did it was great you have to also mutual friends Kevin Nealon and David Alan Grier yes and and I that's how I feel that connection came was David Allen our real yeah it was it was thing is that there maybe there was some kind of thing that we're trying to put together some were you you were writing I guess yeah I wanted to make this film that was a bunch of joe folks and when my dad was driving theater manager and one of the movies I remember from my early Teens was a movie old I just went out of my head mad mad mad world it's the best movie ever made No it was a it was a bunch of joke movies I it was a bunch of jokes kind of Strung DeGaulle Kentucky Fried Kentucky Fried movie well done and so they were going to be amazing dinner didn't go better job ARSIM product you've grown the you know like I made one of them which you can see online if you type in cowboy lesbian joke it will come up Way the poor lady who played the lesbian in the in the film is is now a Catholic school teacher and she begs me to take it off the engine and I said I didn't put it on the Internet I don't know how it got there I don I wouldn't you I couldn't to save my life I couldn't tell you how to even post a video on online but it's there it's a funny joke so there was going to be the cowboy fish out of water these were all going to be in New York and all vignettes and yeah and then st together like blazing saddles at the end when they're all inside of the studio so you you have the cliches of all of these stereotypes of Chinese jokes of African American jokes of Jewish jokes and all of these different characters finally end up in a bar or in a situation where it was one big joke.

"Here Adam Karol over there as we spent Monday and yesterday talking about rules changes we'd like to see in the NFL and there are so many different ways we could go here but you know what let's keep on rolling with some rules changes and and be complete about it our old POW longtime listener way act to the Adam Corolla show on the Radio Scott Perkins Aka at Umass. JSP drop us a line with an idea about as we talk about the these rules here why not in the NFL since you it's not anymore that you used to be you'll recall as that if you cut the ball Oh and defender pushed you out even if you didn't have your feet down if you've got pushed out but you would have landed him bounce it was a good catch they didn't change that rule and said you still need to get your two feet down so that why don't the defenders try to catch the receiver essentially and carry them out of bounds so he doesn't put his feet down it's kind of interesting thought well it's a skill so I mean you watch some of these games now some all but some in particular and you see some of these guys punching the ball all out but not slapping the ball out closed fist roundhouse widowmaker smack on the ball and you're like that is a technique that didn't exist peanut Tillman basically mastered it if didn't create I mean every time he was in on a tackle the great Chicago Bears DB was always a master it just punched in that ball out I've I've seen some games recently where I mean it was literally like Roberto Duran throwing a body shot and full closed fist and you make good contact with the ball and running back doesn't stand a chance I don't know if you in a way it's like you almost have to change the rule books where it's like how Oj didn't have half as many fumbles as half these new guys are Jim Browner Whomever Brian Picolo didn't fumble nearly but yeah he wasn't having the ball punt you can see it when how you know it's different uh-huh and it's a learned skill for NFL players that college kids in even the high end ones there is a large percentage of them that Rugowa fumbling early Oh he's a fundraiser that's because those nfl guys are now so proficient at doing that and like you say it's just something nobody did twenty years ago now these guys are all drilled Marlon Humphrey did it a couple of weeks ago to Juju Smith Schuster over time and swung the game they are masterful at reaching in their bonk just punching that thing out in college kids it takes a season or two like oh I got to protect the ball differently than I always have right so you're sort of advancing skill that if I would have done it with any of my pop warner coaches they would have benched you because they go you take two hands you wrap the guy this is fundamental ever you don't go by the way I as I now recall I hear the Voice of do Gallagher Mr Fitzgerald in my head they would tell you you don't tackle the ball tackle the player Paul you miss you know whatever it is now that all those rules are out the window so this light punching out a ball technique that would have been found upon this now may become a new technique as it pertains to punching the ball out and look for guy goes in the air and you can carry him like a fireman carries an elderly woman out of a burning building. God bless Ya if you're that good that sounds easier than it actually would be it catch a two hundred and twenty pound human up in the air and carry him out well there's also an element of you'd have to be someone ocean thing so it would only apply if you're within striking distance because the raft could blow it dead with the forward motion so I'm all for it here's a bigger question we're doing all these rules all the safety rules all these leading with the helmet and helmet to helmet and Baba Blah we don't have any rules about balling a fist and punching at the guys hard as we possibly can not tackling that's physically punching it'd be all supposed to be about whatever favors the offense and so you would think like all right you're allowed the punch of that but if you hit him instead of the ball there's a penalty right well I have not a no punching with a closed fist rule I that that is that is coming you may loot the ball ever be able to jump up and down dunk the basketball either but it's made the sport better I don't know the field goal kicking from fifty plus yards away has made the sport better I contend it would position on the field they can't be kicking specialists they have to be like Pat summerall and Paul Horning and those guys who used to that like Oh yeah we have also now yeah the opposite argument which is well for the team that's losing it it makes it it's just I admit now at old navy and old Navy Dot Com valid ten fifteen to ten twenty-five select styles only.

You're in pain and you you go someplace you disassociate to protect yourself and i disappeared i. I was some place that that is so i i would be hurt by what was what was happening not that it was physically painful info but it was. I just didn't wanna be there was yeah it's embarrassing and what i was doing was embarrassing got children. I don't just hard it. It was just the whole thing was. I just had to escape now. What the screen actors guild doesn't understand is what happens you you have lawyers and staff members that are that are creating a nudity writer of protection for you but they have no understanding would would actually transpires on a film set so today the focus puller isn't sitting beside the camera pulling focus..

"There's really good evidence sleeping on top of a wi fi antenna reduced seriously quality and there's probably some other negative effects as well yep now when i drink clean water when i eat clean stuff <hes> my ability to meditate goes up. I feel like i i am a more spiritual person when my hardware is running relatively well well. Do you notice any fact a win. When you take better care of your are your meat that your spiritual awareness your ability to be conscious goes up. There's no question there's no question that <hes> <hes> i studied acting with a with a wonderful woman themsel- out there and and she said to begin every day looking at something that was bigger than you. That could be a tree. You know something that's been in the ground for <hes> maybe two lifetimes before you came into the world <hes> touch that tree look at the tree look how the tree has has had to tort its trunk in order to be able to find the nurturing light from the sun <hes> when you look at that contortion when you see the benz and the tree that that that can help you to understand how to play someone like richard the third who's who's been been you know who's who's deformed by the the sheer fact that he was born into a family of royalty in the in the in the complications locations that come with being an famous family of royal royalty that that <hes> if you look at the mountains look up the sky and the fastness of it and the and the and the oxygen that it provides you to be able to to to wake up and take a deep breath <hes> that the realizing where our conversation begin began that you're part of this great cycle of life. You know that you're not bigger your more important than it. You're you're maybe a keystone character in it. You know an important part of the of the chain but you're not you're not bigger or more important than the than the least of us yeah and that helps me to sleep that helps me to keep me humble and and to sleep well at night. There's this notion of the jars these big eddie's in the ocean that are filtering plastic and when one thinks that blew my mind is i started studying spirituality twelve in all was this idea that your kind of a hollow tube you have matter that comes in if you eat breathe and light actually and then you know stuff that goes out and stuff goes out. Obviously you know there's going to the bathroom but in your shedding your skin your cells are turning over so the body that you have two years from now <hes> is fifty percent of the cell membranes are new or the last year and it takes seven years to turn over for half year collagen in your body and and so really you and i are just an eddie moving through matter but the doesn't doesn't really exist in that that means oh what you take in what you take out the effect that you have on others energetically. What's how hopeful of anger or hate or love or compassion are you that it probably affects other people's being in some way or another but when i want to know from you is i i am no actor. When you play someone in full metal jacket or you play someone who is highly elevated does it. I mean does it affect you at a soul level like to take on that energy of a character that so you know you're if you play some dark. Does it make you dark. He plays some light light the yes yes yes yeah and it. It's <hes> <hes> i it's it's difficult i imagined when i got to this stage of my life that i'd be ah speaking truth to power that i i would be playing jimmy stewart henry fonda gary cooper kinda roles and but there's a transition. There's is a pivot in our culture. Now and those roles are given to other people as they should you know because they were there was an imbalance..

"That's mostly. It's mostly <hes> tires. It's mostly tired dustin that ends up in and the ocean when it rains it goes down in the gutters. It goes down in the streams <hes> ends up in in in our oceans and <hes> the the bad thing about plastics the really bad thing about plastics they mimic estrogen and so what we're starting to see from the food chain goes up the microorganisms organisms that are eating plastic the mistakenly consume it for something that they think is food and then it goes up the food chain it. We're starting to see fish that are hermaphrodites that there's more and more of female officiant less and less male fish and the i i don't have apt to paint a picture of what that that future of the ocean could look like because because of these micro-plastics a recent study to just found a very very strong association between high levels of estrogen in the first trimester and autism so it's affecting human brains as well. I wanted to be with you on ocean plastic. I've been thinking about this last year. I helped to fund <hes> one of the x prizes that they're creating around carbon capture to pull carbon <unk> out of the air and do something useful with it. One of the things might actually be you know to to make building blocks or something like that but i've been thinking about the ocean plastic thing and you look at harm minimization and i'm an packer engineering guy it seems to me that i would rather burn plastic and then capture the toxic fumes because we can scrub smoke really effectively sweden figured out how to do that in cartoon coal plants long time ago so what if you had a barge out there in the middle of the jar just picking up the plastic burning it. Maybe you know generating some excess if you really want to do but who needs electrician though the ocean literally just dumping the heat into the ocean because the microparticles won't form if you just burn it all and yes you'll get carbon in the air if you wanted to you could use all electricity to.
