I don't know if you know this originally offered the Tom Cruise role in top gun but turned it down Frederick Douglass but I don't know that much about Frederick Douglass and I thought I guess I should know more and drew one that Prager US last prager you these five minute short form things coming out I've done a few of them. Nicotine is an addictive chemical not for sale to minors website restricted to adults twenty one and over hey if you're smoking and enjoy the satisfaction of the nicotine is decent qualities is he likes finding these historical figures and doing the long dive the deep dive into their their background is equal to or greater than that of Andrew Jackson Abraham Lincoln or ulysses grant he never became a politician but he spoke to presidents as an equal his name is Frederick Douglass born a slave douglas never knew the exact date of his birth never knew his father never saw his mother after the even for suggesting labour-saving ideas Douglas experienced all of this and rebelled against it as a teenager he taught himself to read the age of seven this wasn't uncommon at the time slave owners often made a point of separating families breaking family bonds increased dependence on the slave owner discipline was maintained through simple fear and destroying self esteem a slave could be punished for not working hard enough but also for working too hard stories really really good movie he's in that too I I'll I'll get to the punchline of this story but I I oral stands and turning away money time yes well way ahead of its time because I don't think anyone holiday. NBA thinks about anything but money these of unruly slaves covy beat Douglas every week for six months often for no reason and it worked soon young Frederick gave up listen to it he was one of the most revered Americans of the nineteenth century his story of personal triumph humble origins to national prominence the official particulars on Frederick Douglass you guys can all listen and in five minutes become an expert as well so keep in mind this came out on Sunday uh covy laid a hand on Douglas again the teenage slave had stood up for himself he considered this the most important when Kobe's struck him Douglas fought back where he found the courage he couldn't say the two men struggled until covy stumbled away exhausted I'm not gonNA commit like Dr drew and read a Tome of five hundred pages but I'll give five minutes and I'll be an expert on Frederick loan displaying a confidence he didn't actually feel he bluffed his way past suspicious conductors and runaway slave hunters once in the north he joined in his life years later he would tell this story when urging black men to enlist in the Union army to fight the confederacy you owe it to yourself he said Ed you will stand more erect and be less liable to insult you will be defending your own liberty honor manhood and self respect has made his escape from slavery in eighteen thirty eight slipping into the north disguised as a US Navy sailor at any point along the Rail Journey his flimsy cover could have been alive fourth speeches in garrisons view it legally protected slavery and was therefore irredeemable but Douglas came to reject that as district Colombian Puerto Rico must be eighteen years old or sweepstakes balance number twenty four through October twenty first verb it's your local autozone store for more details warning this product contains nicotine a over the weekend and this one is not been banned yet but it is Frederick Douglass self made man ooh and explaining that he was a slave and then he kind of became a statesman but he was never really a politician but he became a great orator and Douglas so I think Kruger yes this and I thought oh it'll play in an audio form and everyone listening who doesn't know all in crow laws and even worse widespread lynching this was a bitter pill for douglas to swallow but he never gave up the struggle and spent the last three decades his life agitating for civil rights freedom he was fond of saying depended on three boxes the ballot box the jury box and the cartridge box for document not surprisingly Douglas was a strong supporter of the Republican Party the new anti-slavery Party and of the union cause in the civil war the radical abolitionist movement and was quickly recognized as a powerful speaker and writer the movement's leader William Lloyd garrison burned the constitution it is also believed that true liberty would only come for black Americans as it comes for anyone when they took full responsibility for their own fate Eric people have honesty enough loyalty enough honor enough patriotism enough to live up to their own constitution he elicit was self evident that black Americans as citizens were entitled to full freedom and full legal protection at a speech in eighteen ninety three white hecklers began booing him Douglas said his speech aside and spoke extemporaneously there is no Negro problem he roared the problem is whether the virtue cannot be bestowed it must be developed from within he declared in his most popular lecture appropriately titled Self Made Men all hope of being free the dark night of slavery closed in upon me he later wrote that all changed one hot August Day in eighteen thirty five he believed that the Constitution was fundamentally opposed to slavery interpreted as it ought to be interpreted Douglas said the constitution is a glorious liberty is that of the black man not because he is black but because he is a man I'm Timothy Sandefur author of Frederick Douglass Self made man on Lincoln on the other hand always admired douglas here comes my friend Douglas Lincoln said when he saw him at his second inaugural in eighteen sixty five the union victory initially he had his doubts about Abraham Lincoln he didn't think Lincoln was truly committed to ending slavery but he warmed up to the great emancipator as the conflict Douglas defended equality and freedom until the day he died literally he passed away in one thousand nine hundred five on his way to a political convention he had motin with Gina Grant on News Ball Brian on sound effects rj bell gives us his week seven picks and damaged hair is year for this created a desire for freedom when his owner discovered this disturbing development he sent him to live with a local farmer Edward Covy who made extra money breaking the win really hard work in education would secure blacks the rights they deserved there can be no independence without a large share of self dependence this very high regard Lincoln had had great regard for him drew kind of telling me that he wasn't a huge fan of Lincoln Lincoln was a huge fan of his evidently interesting the film's pro military stance went against his politics. Those too much volleyball tastes bygone era folks in Hollywood taking had slavery but as the Democratic Party reestablished itself in the south in the eighteen seventies and eighties a new kind of racial oppression arose in the form of that came out on Saturday so that came out on Saturday and then the following day the Frederick Douglass Prager you thing dropped the title of that op Ed piece understood the deep prejudice that existed but he never accepted it as an inherent part of American culture my 'cause he wrote was and Racists Recruiting Watch your white sons so we're recruiting keep an eye on right white sons and then when they at some point on our dynamic but then I thought about it and I thought hm so aided can come to my attention since I'm doing this no safe spaces with the prager which Dr Duffy notes is not an accredited university but a propaganda machine that introduces viewers to extremist views via video. Okay we're prager university all right sounds like that Douglas was ripping off a lot of my sounds like they're this honky number one all right so that dropped over the weekend on Sunday on Saturday there is New New York Times op Ed piece by joining a Schroder out of doing one about Frederick Douglass things that I know Abraham Lincoln Fan so I thought well okay I'll there might bring up prager you yeah the well the subtitles parenting and understand how white supremacists prey on teen boys so they can intervene and then in the article or concert of Los Angeles Times about Oh well guns in schools does anyone read those are their actual white supremacy groups like doing this because get it all got to get on a churchman mandate kit on man thanks for tuning in and thanks for sharing all except for they don't cite anything just go here's who the guy is so weird also Joanna Schroeder what forty seven like you there's there's an expert a favorite activity for many boys is to watch gamers playing video games on Youtube according to John Duffy author of parenting the new bad news but your thirteen year old could join the Klan is really calling your bad parent dumbo somebody really had that notion weird so I know prager very well I know prager you very well I don't I think what happens is people like Joanna Schroeder in the age of anxiety the problems come with advertisements that may appear during the videos many of these spots are created and promoted by organizations like prager you weird timing that Frederick Douglass came out it's probably weekend but it's a propaganda machine introducing young it's when came to me when look at them you can't prevent your son from joining the Klan like I'd like to think the parenting and the ideas exchanged under the and there s everyone like Chaka Willa neck has done done one and everyone does de Yeah just proud I haven't I'm sure it's all bust your ass a siren song of the racist and interact or nation uplift fred goes name it's a super high end high falutin today's guys ever see shortcuts little nervy from Altman yeah overall in moving rhetoric player ninety three and on Psalm thing it's a bunch of there's like mom can I got this sheet it's such an elite thought like I'm going to need to protect you from a first off saying to parents hey man college degree tote and thown to think everyone else's so malleable I'm like oh it's not for me I couldn't be swayed this way but these other dumb when Joanna pens her next op ED shall we be all ears some ears one ear what shall we be thinking when she launches off on her it kind of fly in the face of her bed but anyway folks are recruiting except for nobody knows there's nobody knows that introduces viewers to extremist views via video extremist views. Here all right hurt your own cause me say things like that well and if you are going to accuse them of indoctrinating people into this type of thinking you must then give example funny that Frederick Douglass came out the next within twenty four hours a weird piece of timing there I almost feel sorry for you should are just take other slights and use those not investigate I'm going to go online and look at these videos means and and and give examples and times site things and then we shall listen well that's actually that is that remains the line from the roof we fucking live in perhaps are going to shape my child at the Toronto Little Sway but thanks for the heads up Joe Joanna we we safe spaces that that is constantly rattling around in my head when Ben Shapiro was speaking and said you know we we live in a nation that is far more safer created and promoted by organizations like prager you and then give what they called prager you stretch it a propaganda machine her next opinion shall we should we listen I I'm not but go ahead and find actual evil and then pointed out the dean is out there. RJ RJ excellent dominates the little people the flyover stab people they're going to see a few online videos they're gonna get sucked like where I gotTa buy a horse where's my pillowcases our thoughts and you might hear about the Border Crooked Hillary or leave him not getting yeah they just said that these spots ready for like oh wow that's a really interesting angle to make the leap to prager you feels a little well quite an elite here's the thing prager you has four hundred videos halls of the videos that prove your point there's hundreds of videos you have to cite some video and go don't believe me take a look at this video you're not stupid like what's going on and do you know what you're doing now is this volition L- how does it work just lazy because it's what people expected it's what they'll it incite some sort of feeling there's a new we're in an era which is put a pox on my son because I was walking out on Sunday morning and I walked into his room because they not well again it's something that is gathered a lot of momentum recently and I just it's not good to think of yourself we we organized by boots yeah so how we so I also said when all right RJ's going to he's on line six okay calling it we got we ready for R. J. Matthew you know I made a pretty big chunk of cash on that UFC fight the other week. And I I'm thinking letting it ride on the niners and and online videos and spots that that that's how they're recruiting through the Internet but why prager you how the but then they're not are in better and Blah Blah Blah than any any place in history you are not a victim if you are tell me why and I will stand with you but if you're not you're the USC season entitled didn't hire on Your own supply so well listen one of my or prime main guy alright let's see just thought that was the weirdest piece of timing ever an op-ed Frederick Douglass the next offering we appreciate it thank you thank you hero wait years it again screws up the op-ed stuff like whether it's I'll slow as role little bit hopefully I can get him over toward Neo Nazi claims you know what I mean like my thing is like look the Klan is the NFL he's the only guy that's won two super contests he has a son only one son and he this is about two years ago so he would have been about six and we went to dinner You know I don I don't want him to join the clans so I have conversations about life you know you know some there you figure you talking to them we'll discourage the credits university because of the advertisements that may appear during some of the videos they were while they're watching guys play video games and they're like niners plus three and a half it's that half man and I shaped what do you think boy and he goes these people are where they're coming for our Chris how does she make the leap to either are there recruiting on prager you've videos no she's she's saying that through memes and and I was here in RJ's voice in my head which is I kept saying if the rams win they'll be lucky to win by field goal putting they're given three and a half just watch my rams be happy just get pummeled so now they're losing and I did not place a wager on that game so the rams started this not with this season but with the Super Bowl they scored three points in God Damn Super Bowl so it wasn't like victim even if you are victims still bad that they give yourself a victim according to Frederick Douglass according to Frederick Yeah but he was an awful lot of money let's be honest and we batting a dollar a time and if there was a certain kind of if then if I said this he would do that and it's like was a level three kind of thing so this was one is what ballot check did not Super Bowl and not that I'm a super expert with the XS and os but it was more six guys on the line of scrimmage you bet against your own team oh my God and I was like hey man I've demoralized and I left a certain lessons data and she's a son none of them is wind up to get to the second level I beat them like beat his brains in on the level three stuff for like twelve bucks he was like I little tear in his eye and his dad looks allow that zone run scheme of Ramsey do well that's this approach that everyone's using now so it's almost like a boxer plan lights out ball is there a way to take a guy like so is the remedy to all strategies it doesn't seem like McVeigh has counter yet so let's let's talk about a guys crushing it out there Russell Wilson he's Russell Wilson Meaning Rams quarterbacks off he's not that mobile whatever so now you much better than me where if you do you know push here and go lap he has trouble with the apricot kinda thing right expose that I think the rams were exposed and you can kind of scheme around everything do this put the guys in the slots or whatever man up or whatever is Russell Wilson sort of the wave of the future that guy there in the first half and first Castro when a chance to win a trip to Vegas and meet me head your local autozone and be entered automatic niners look like they they're for real or the rams of basically just lost three games in a row and maybe it's time for everyone to come back to earth and in a weird way oh happy because that's the lesson he needs to learn I wanna teach him what you were doing so you know in a way that's how you're thinking you're boy it was a good heart thing he said I would say the only guy who was on the border Aaron Rodgers where he especially when he was a little younger he wouldn't run a lot but he would run if it's third and twelve they need that proves the rule meaning other than Ham who has been a mobile quarterback that they're running was even ten percent of what you were scared of he's a thrower if you come into the game you're not worried about him running right and to me Russell Wilson is maybe the exception ride but deep down you know all the world's going to beat that out of them well for me it was losing lives because then I went over to the warehouse I sat the dudes crack a beer and vis seasons like yeah at the end of last season and now this season as well let's wait on real quick if you went on the rams interesting insights stork lead hasn't been really successful but if your team was going to play Bill Belichick in the Super Bowl because I don't know if you guys read The Times scheme that are only can to a certain degree we say them a home in Williston are very different in mahomes has athleticism to bring that up the next meeting Cam Newton in the border but all right so what I'm kind of asking is as I know peyton manning passer brady passer Big Ben Pass the Reiner on the list of the best quarterbacks of the last twenty years now I getting eight cheering you can share all you want but the money outs when I'm done with my presentation about David Duke I'm going to bring Brian in here he's GonNa talk about richer and that there's really no way to scheme what he does or Mahomes our guys like that we are we going that direction because Bill Belichick can't a year we go to dinner and sit and I hear how he's doing and everything and he's a smart kid I mean facet graduate from North West so it's his boys really smart. We were playing rock scissors paper in probably yeah but quarterback twenty years Houston took off quarterback took top twenty last twenty years right I honey the first is the game he would run then occasionally which was just back breaker who else is a runner amongst the best quarterback this century right sounds awesome but you gotta mount dues there's this weird there's a whole language like a pig Latin kind of thing and learn whereas Nazis Okay Yeah Okay let's order him I now listen to me L. quarterback would you want a Russell Wilson Tom you might be surprised you're saying something really intelligent here without knowing it I think is today but they're just going to be in the Super Bowl every they've earned compete to see who gets to play them every year would you want that mobile for RJ's par lay presented by that D- Si with VEGAS INSIDER RJ bell. Okay I'm up all right you know I'm thinking I'm trying to make some final decisions here this packet how good he is an MVP leader you're asking about him Adam which is you know you're a cat or a fan but you're not a day you're not looking at it three hours a day plus three and a half this is in Seattle and that's the first pick and here's the rationale in this one Seattle in my opinion hi I'm doubling down on this is the most overrated team in the NFL they performance Russell Wilson all of a sudden now you're hearing about Oh single high on the seahawks were on the Ravens right now I'll take the three and the hook which is very important on Baltimore I also like Lamar Jackson Evens they've kind of been debunked a little bit whereas you know it was all the Lamar Jackson so back to this sell high you know or or sell high buy low he's in Game Two which is obviously passing all right let's play the Intro we'll get RJ's parlay eight and three this season he's risen up to the point of people saying man he's having a good season that's usually when a team is going to be expensive and you look at the at the high leverage moments time where success means so much which is usually the end of the end of Competitive Games and playoff and if you notice that is the people thought they were going to be certainly this yeah for sure for sure okay here's what I'm GonNa do I'm GonNa go with let's think about this I'm GonNa go with the Ravens then he doesn't have a traditional throw all directions to year it's Frederick Douglass at a silver version of that but it's the same same head of hair so I put my money I or Russell Wilson is more effective in the play offs because he's willing to run more and take the risks associated with it but you gotTa have a regular game five and a half doesn't seem short what the raiders I mean I'm just looking at the line and I don't even understand how I'm always scared when a line doesn't make sense to me and year after year he took these heads and now when's the last time he's been house so what you gotTa do is only run would you guys who gets the line was on that I gave it no thought but I would assume the packers are going to win by touchdown at home. Yeah the raiders are there non-active traditionalist Yeah this at the meeting anything for this wasn't the last meeting but I will be bringing it into the I believe he's got the old school Frederick Douglass row like the two hundred years ago for always it doesn't average have corn rose dread excellent meeting might obviously the slide of Lamar and then Fredericton Cross having you know what to Larry's is like the president when he he says something he doesn't want to be on tape he's saying he'll do a different voice like some people say Donald you know like that so you can never clip it up and make it seem like it's that and liberace having his young squire get plastic surgery to look like him not enough made of either one of those two inside read all right let me hit Bet Diaz I let's see great time year football make Betty SL DOT com you're betting partner us but Code Adam One oh one that's double your money paying out winners for twenty years top rated on review sites users needed they're laying three at home against the saints I think at some point the saints are GonNa take a breath and say we've done well for ourselves is flat spots in PSI's live betting platform watch all the events and bet games until the final whistle new members get a one hundred percent bonus match with the promo the main Greece lushes guacamole cheese steaks endless rams logger and Iva loss Wocka moly from the current world champion Yes all right all right number two I'm stubborn I can't lie I've been betting against the saints I've been losing against the saints in a bring him in in one one second I'm not look I'm looking for a little better department politics reality TV each sports all there at Bet D.

Rj Bell will take a Quick Break Matthew Modine in studio next my grandfather and my uncle did up northern California fly fishing for steelhead trout in the Hayfork River and the shadow of Mount Shasta 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 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 fly fishing and it doesn't seem so Jimmy Kimmel love fly fishing and Huey Lewis loves fly fishing and so does 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 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 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 take the break you choose it's hard to fans 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 fresh yeah I don't even know where that fun fact came back but he actually didn't teach me how to fly fish 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 have dinner many years ago I think we did yes and I don't I cannot recall many the specific 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 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 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 the atom atom update your spiel dude wants that's like ten twelve year old debate really 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 six I remember probably go back to like none of them nineteen ninety eight nineteen ninety seven and somehow 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 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 it does help you get there faster you got you got sorry you have her and her daughter Nicole sorry we blindside 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 so sorry and carpentry as well is that true well I now I know where that came from it was people magazine 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 you can just see if we can his payments it's so long is ball's like rail now a lot of people love 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 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 yeah I was having mangas order city doesn't matter how big you are Camden example or that cam is 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 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 folks and when my dad was driving theater manager and one of the movies I remember from my early Teens was a movie 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 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 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 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 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 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 on the bigger Dick Than Liam Niece Fatimah put it in there and we'll cakes and fly fish is yeah 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 and the movie was called the Joe Doc and look boom just like that we have how long has it was forty oh well that's that's why should who's in the bars that's me that's Unocal and then along the way I saw the documentary about the making of Oliver and when when you're little and you watch movies you kind of think they're documentary it's all I think about all day long I love it well Sonny I thought it was just found out I'm Elizabeth dozen Reagan horses so well yeah I guess I am a real cowboy good looking lady the bartender cowboy excuse me we were just wondering are you a real cowboy check please and she now teaches school and probably not happy I heard she wanted to sue me uh excuse me now you know what I am what do you well I've never meant to defend it such as such as life yeah so we had that meeting you do some writing and some acting and obvious Redford at my dad's theater lyric on state street which is now the Promised Valley playhouse was legit theater that was turned into a movie theater it's now back to being a legit theater and we are surrounded by tomato fields and we moved to Utah where he became a general manager of about a dozen drive ins and in theaters I met Robert This I've never broken a horse and I've never been on a ranch so I'm not a cowboy but I am a lesbian he's like everything is real and and the horror Israel and the action and people die and And and we this documentary about the real cowboy Lawrence Angeles well I spent my whole life on a ranch mended fences herden cows Dan I love kissing women suffer lips running my hand Kerr the and yeah I know I talked to Christy Canyon about this is like I probably didn't anticipate the Internet and everything being available in high school and and before I was born here in California Loma Linda my dad had a theater there called the Cherry pass driver surrounded by Cherry trees and then we moved to imperial beach the drive ins were always out kind of rural areas away from any kind of light that we compete with projectors I started working never stopped did you start working almost immediately no it was about to making of Oliver made me discover that these children that were learning to sing and dance and I said Oh well that's what I wanna do and so I started in Orem Utah and I said look there's there's some movies that I wish that I hadn't done and make them go away but I can't you know I didn't force you to come in it was street artists and that was that moment and it was kind of like if you go back and watch Martin Scorsese's movie with Linda Fiorentino and and then had the extreme honor of working with a the very famous woman named Stella Adler was part of the group theatre and Keith Haring was spray painting tribeca shepherd ferry was putting his stickers up all over the place with Andre the giant the obey stickers they were was before Giuliani was made mayor and everything changed you know it was still pretty greedy city in nineteen seventy eight seventy nine now and But it was it was manageable you could you could be a young actor an aspiring actor and move to New York City you know Basquiat was painting murals on the streets and taking tap dancing and joined the glee club and then in junior high school I was in some plays and highschool I cut from the football team myself more year and I was passing by the drama department and they were having auditions for our town threaten wilders play and I cast elite as well where where do you hail from up north I guess you're saying and how did it all begin with something you were thinking breasts hard nickel and eating pussy on smart case an and then I don't like the expression the bug bit me but it did and then I moved to New York City and when I was eighteen you and a half years of trying to keep my feet in New York City it was it in New York City hadn't been Disney fide yet right yeah that that New York has gone I like was it west side story with the kids the you know the white kids from stages of New York in it's all captured and it's all just there so you can sort of new it's all historically captured which is Kinda Nice I I it's it's kind of Nice that it's been captured because so many movies woody Allen and beyond there's a Jeff Goldblum version of that movie and then this one but that was a that was a funny movie very darkly funny and the person's like yeah I can't do that and he's like couldn't you just do it like what could possibly happen only you and I know after hours remember running around in the rain guess runs into the subway and it's colloquially called now Dubai on the Hudson because there's there's so many new buildings and there's I mean it's it's crazy the the subotic guys just journey of the world's worst night really come down like five o'clock in the morning shooting empty bar in New York City I'd enforce shred enforced just say the lines you showed up you put makeup on and you you did it and you got to kind of own it icy but that meant you could afford rant right yeah I mean I I felt kinda like that cowboy having grown up in Utah night or day or whatever like it's some each has no money and he's saying to the token taker like just let me through like you don't know what I've been through would would know exactly I could go to a party get drunk someone who knows thrashing any you can you can go back and see like Old New York as it as it was and I guess it may have been a little I don't know that Jonah Hill Movie Lewis in nineteen eighty one leaving the cube yeah anyway I love that movie 'cause I know he shows up acting in movies but I thought that was all stunt casting because of the musician but I just saw something about some skater punk kids like nineteen eighty yeah I don't know is that scene available when it it'd be toward the it'd be right at the end of the movie after hours was Patricia Hyphen done on the night now the Oh God shift but after I drive just gone who gonNa know that we have this conversation I impressed Adam that you almost quoted the movie exactly that was pretty good he used the backdrop of these movies that were shot in the seventies or even the sixties or early eighty whatever so you have all these different hell's kitchen it hell's kitchen is now they can change the hudson yards for while they were calling it Clinton and that didn't last so then they see now it's Hudson yards amount of growth in the is probably a hundred thousand more people on the west side of Manhattan now we have we have the subway scenes skirts from I looked at up that was that was probably pre Red Hot Chili I think it was a Senate yeah so before he's a musician oh I didn't know that I did not so you'll have a little bit hey and my hair it the the city did feel like midnight cowboy right I don't know he got an answer so when did then dings take off ringling matter just give me a break I really just want to go home I'm sorry I can't do that I could lose my job dot com where you buy it from the artist because it's a moment in your life that you hope will last and it must have struck year old cheers yeah that's when people are coming out of the but it was it would work you know at the I'm the youngest seven in my brothers and sisters

Matthew Modine

"Welcome to the podcast number ten twenty six come on down to irvine california november fifteen eighteen and then at the beginning of december to the tacoma comedy club in tacoma washington and then i'm setting up a bunch of tour dates for next year so i'll post those soon and i was reading about your great grandfather with matthew modine initiated protocol gas stop a place to get some groceries so we have our thanksgiving's there every year that's where the whole family would gather at my my grandmother's sisters virginia which is in theaters VOD and digital on october eighteenth which is the day this posting so go see it in the theater if you can all new swath of stuff come about thanks to stranger things which he was fantastic in as well and just an all around at the at the greek can you drive out towards shoshoni my grandmother played planted date palms from pits and it's a place called china ranch and china this episode is mr mr matthew modine who has been in some allege dairy films and had and that is a fascinating story because he founded a lot of these odd towns like in the desert yeah i mean they they saw with the theories with a smattering of true crime and generally weird stuff in the world we made correlations between stuff that have no business being correlated together or do they we have ten plus episodes is what you would do if you wanted to share your thing with us like will who writes my brother-in-law elijah and i've made a podcast called bring on the weird we talked conspiracy and he'll explain why that's important later in the in the podcast but thank you so much for listening this is ID number ten twenty six ranch my my cousin brian brown runs it he's part of the old charlie brown was the governor of california wow but he is thriving date business in well rounded super cool guy learned a lot about him and his family backgrounds really interesting too so it was a tremendous pleasure to talk to matthew modine for about an hour he's promoting the new film search for bring on the weird we'll get you to us but the easiest way to find us as invest way to listen to go to anchor dot FM slash bring on the weird the train tracks crossed in france and baker california home of the mad greek always stop strawberry milkshakes if you make a right s. and date palms to people with homes in las vegas that's so interesting because baker is one of those towns where it just feels like what was this you know motel aunt betty and betty lyle and yeah when i when i was a boy there was ice cream it was called the cone it because you know they got the big thermometer there and then just like a couple of retailers and then a stopover for vegas that's it i mean it was a guest up right live out there and baker now but yeah it's essentially what it is is a gas stop with was that the nature of a lot of the places that he fended where he said oh there's a it's horrible blackflies as soon as they light they bite they they they bite you and that was one of the mistakes that my great grandfather made there was the grocery store low post office and the motel and got a couple of gas stations and you know it's grown into a town of maybe three hundred people ah my cousin i wish my cousin were here because she knows the whole history of the entire family but yeah but but china ranch yet but there's a lot of modine laid out there modine meadows we next door to china ranch was trying to raise cattle on salt grass and brackish water and there needs to be a little bit infrastructure here because this is a pathway for something i don't know of any other towns that they i read that there were like three towns yeah rick and morty flair and that's also what dot com but let's talk about you the icty tinti community events at ivytech dot com the tenacious and or stubborn nature of humans is that there's a lot of places in the world where i feel like the environment is saying don't come here gene and fairbanks and and lyle brown out there out there in the desert i love it out there you know i think it's a magical place and not someplace you wanna be in august the three of them they went up to alaska jugo gold mining and they had dogs and sleds and and they got caught in the winter quarters well i mean they did try they my grandfather my great grandfather and i think my grandfather's brother of mort live here people are like no fuck you we're gonna live here and i think that i i am delighted and also horrified at the same time about the human nature because of that kind of thing a long alaskan you know one of those frighteningly cold winters and they had to eat their dogs no and they never talked about it if you i'm from a family of like survivors you know at pioneers yeah i mean even your dad opened the the water wasn't healthy for the cows to drink but the the cow cows would literally get the blood sucked out of them by these blackflies see that's the sort of the the world that we live in a i literally when we moved from imperial beach california to sugar house in in salt lake city so if food if i'm not mistaken wasn't it like they open a drive in and then the land would be more valuable than the drive in so they would take take it and then he'd started somewhere else yeah he is that the drive ins existed we were that's why i think my dad was the rehabilitator of driving because they'd be falling apart and as he was the general manager when we moved to you kinda jobs whatever we could manage depending on our age and we'd re- rehabilitate the drive ins and then we'd move and i just assumed we were moving to the new drive in fix it fix that one now it's time to fix this one and it was when i was about eleven eleven years old i mean this sounds horrible i mean today in the talk about a dozen drive ins a half dozen drivers and a couple of movie theaters we he would always come in he was say seven kids and he put us all the work with different that said just walk to the new house and it was about four and a half miles five miles and it was it was cold it was a fall and winter and this oh my god it's up to the insanely with climate change has gotten worse i mean it gets into the one hundred and twenty s and there's no shade yeah and this is not only by the way this is the makings of a great you know you damn kids today don't know i had to walk home five miles our listeners are in salt lake city i was going to school temporarily at a school in sugar house and then we moved to cottonwood and after school my quarters that they must have been in in order to be able to survive and then the horror of having to each your animals i mean that's that that is a terrifying i can understand why they wouldn't want to talk about that but it sounds like you so i get on the bus and i get to where my house was the house was gone what to drive in was gone it was a grand central shopping center there was a parking lot and then the you know the reason my dad didn't want me to go back was because he knew that i was going to be traumatized by seeing everything gone and then of course oh utah to orem utah to go back and see my friend jason and my dad's not you don't wanna go back no i really want to go back and see him so he let me get on the greyhound move on well i teach acting i teach acting classes for free at the new york film academy and and what i've learned over the thirty something almost forty pat's and yeah i know it was but anyway so this is a real trauma here there are exceptions but and and or from transient hadj transient childhoods military childhoods or you know they just moved around a lot zip to you know i'll never forget because by the time i got there i had to go to the bathroom probably half way on the on the way and by the time i couldn't find the house i poop used to be a apples and pear orchard and to you know i'd walk through that to go to school that was gone that was subdivision of houses rutta alaska they would get angry and look away you just traumatized yes they were definitely post traumatic stress from having lived through that winter is in first grade oh my god starting first grade and different time walk home five miles yeah so i get on the bus to go from midvale amid vid did you move around a lot and what i found is that most successful actors are the youngest members of their family not always what it means to be a performer in the business because you are kind of going from thing to thing you build something and then it's done and then you move on and you know you build something taught are are from a similar situation directors are generally the oldest writers are often the oldest child in their families middle child and no one knows except for now but it's a good that is a that is a eleven nah i was like five or six years ago here's how do you stand out in a in a in a cast of that many people in your home i fall into both although i'm an only child override buried my first dog oh my g for and then as i started they got off the bus and trying to figure out like what where did everything go and i walked through appear the youngest sherman with the first child your parents rush you to the doctor when you get when you get a fever right now when anything happens the second child you go oh remember eleven years old i mean this is just the whole idea of it is terrifying today you know with creeps in the weirdos hang out at bus stations seven you probably have to perform a little bit to get attention i would imagine what that much activity in the house yeah and you have so many people you can you can study eh but that that that is interesting though because i feel like there is a little bit of a parallel between that kind of a transient lifestyle and kerr and john slesinger and allen kula these extraordinary filmmakers that i've had the pleasure and the honor of working with it's i we moved transit transit and so i think that i think that need to reactivate okay and learn how to keep yourself from getting in trouble and i'm sure you also have to establish a very specific identity because there's so much there's a cast of characters cool for free you teach classes for free yeah i studied in new york city with stella adler and she told me that when you get older and you know if you've had a successful career and i think that it's it's something about structure and leadership that the the first child that you have different responsibilities than you do if she taught me a tremendous amount i've learned a tremendous amount of working stanley kubrick and robert altman and alan part get my band yeah it doesn't sound you're not going to believe it you're not gonna believe i had to hide the underwear put put them in the garbage so that nobody would know that up and and so i fall into both of those categories of being transient and the youngest and i would say that ninety percent of the performance that i've worked wants you know it just takes a snag to make the whole pair of stockings or you and i can have the exact same contents in our kitchen i we both have flowery both have sugar we lenses and crew members and people are passionate about making a film and some people are able to do extraordinary things with it with that equipment in those people did you say don't worry he'll stop bleeding or he won't i don't know we got six hundred bucks what else i'm sure when you're the youngest what happens with your friends is they replace you those young ages why did he want you to see that where he didn't want to watch i thought you said he did okay gotcha gotcha uh on their own well i like to think of acting as look the same disciplined that a musician would would have that if if if and listen and watch how people do things you know it's fascinating to me that we're all given the same equipment on movie sets you know we have a cameron and some people miss and fail miserably and i i have i haven't i haven't figured out what the differences is you know that every schools in half to perform to get attention to get attention or whatever i completely understand it i didn't know you taught acting classes that's to understand the piece as best i can to to understand the the tone of the music but my my responsibility is violinist eight years of of being an actor because asked a few questions when i'm working with other people is is where where do you fall in the family are you the youngest or the oldest the middle turn let's call him stanley kubrick is going to conduct this piece of beethoven music now my responsibility is you never start a film without the belief that it's going to be wonderful and that you're going to do a good job in chemistry yeah it's it's a magic it's like a pair of ladies there's like i go to the upper peninsula of michigan for like four or five months of the year is just a frozen it's like living in a meat freezer and i feel like that's the environment going you're giving them a kind of idealized environment it's okay to fail here it's okay to try things living this is a safe environment but you mentioned all of those directors some of i think in the what made me kind of want to go down this path is is when you teach how do you express that to your students because when you're teaching an acting class whom i'm sure had historically strong personalities different personalities how do you teach them to navigate the different chemistries that they will encounter listen i paid attention you know i don't i don't go back to my trailer and sitting there and you know i don't know smoke pot or do whatever people do in their trays i usually stay on the set ed paid attention and listened learned over the course of your career that you have a responsibility to share the information with the next generation so when they're both in the strokes of their bow the the in the way that that's how they interpret the song so with an actor that's what you're doing you have the up have vanilla extract we both have ten other ingredients you make a beautiful cake and i make up turn there's no it's just chemistry i think it's 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 is to learn my part and understand my part and the difference between one violinist and another violinist is how much pressure they put on the strings how much pressure they have 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 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 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 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 ganic role there were being the most important thing to learn in your life to be to exist you know 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 having poop my pants when i was a little boy you know or having to walk home park yeah the experiences that you have in life 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 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 z. confident human being if you don't possess that confidence in that sense sensuality inside of you the the blue self help books in the bookstores telling you how to be comfortable with who you are accepting who you are and the different directors the director whose hard on them that director who's like do whatever you want you know like how do you convey that to an actor that they will have is that just something they have to learn the doctor just said to give them a baby aspirin on a bus yeah yeah the third the third child you say by the fourth the fifth that six seven risk if we were doing hamlet you'd have the same script as i would and i might interpret the hamlet different than your hamlet and that would be just because of the 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 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 the there are certain excuse me artists who who innately know that they at early age 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 tend to dot com slash tour while you're ninety ten maybe look at the new jetsons tee shirt that we just posted with a little bit of if i played the violin and i was being invited to be the first violinist it this is a part of this orchestra and this really famous conduct 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 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 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 about who i am and what it is to be a citizen of the planet you know the extraordinary kind of 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 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 because i think at a certain point that becomes more about maintaining a level of commercial success rather than me because 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 doc ellipse now the alan parker i mean all these extraordinary people these artists and stuff that you have you have the ability to 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 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 what filmmaking and storytelling doing theater the that that it's an opportunity for me to learn 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 after that that you're always well you should be always trying to learn and and continued to develop an 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 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 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 and platform and it is it's like both people stepping outside their comfort zone trying new things but you have done 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 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 so many different kinds of you mentioned all those directors but you've done so many different kinds of films as well and 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 agent after religion after searching yeah to try to understand what had happened to her child and that journey took her to india where she went to meet me 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 baba and on the boat ride to india from new york mayor baba died in so she arrived in india with her guru dead and then came back to new york and 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 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 date palm at china ranch in death valley near shoshoni her first child burned to death in smoke house 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 by a sit arthur by herman hess that kind of make made me think that's what my grandma that was her journey where she kept join us within so without as above so below the yin and the yang you know all that talk these things that are balanced and my grandmother really understood that 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 when she finally came into my life i was already about fifteen years old i didn't know her because of this incredible journey she'd been on but in the story of sid arthur other was amazing and then this woman that became my wife that she's not just saved my life but she is saved my soul i mean she's she's an extraordinary person because streamers based on david ray play mike nichols directed on broadway and we won a best actor award at the venice film fest it's the story of the buddha and he joins religion after religion after religion thinking that this is the real one this is the real one this is the real one and then he finally realizes 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 in a trailer called the nomad and and she shared those stories with me about about her life and the things and she was extraordinary person and then my mom started working on park avenue taking care of a senior citizens you know she was the nurse that pushes the people around the job she had a in the is when he's sitting under the body tree that what he was searching for was within him so there you hear this often in different religions different many different religions had some this this guy arjun brahmin he runs the western australia buddhist society 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 from you know i just wanted to be it's like you know we basically construct these these prisons of our own lives maybe based on our egos or some of what he said seems to be like up you navigate in a healthy way all of all of that stuff or did you learn to do that you're always learning as they say shortly like yoga they call and trying to look like a new yorker i wanted i wanted to get the the hay out of my hair from you know my wife and i had seen this wonderful documentary on television called sugar coated on net flicks and sugar causes inflammation and they brain and so after three days of of reducing sugar and simple carbohydrates it was as if i'd been going through life with my finger maple syrup what happens with with sugar causes inflammation so if you imagine your brain right now all those beautiful little little veins you can take what you need and apply and i am fascinated by the idea of just figuring out how to live in the pure presence where you just rain in the neurons inside your brain just the tiniest bit of inflammation inside your brain puts pressure on those reduces the ability to carry on he's known for for decades that sugar his the only thing that cancer eats and by reducing a simple carbohydrates and sugars and that's all of them god vay stuff yeah materialism and expectation they're kind of sisters brothers brothers and sisters they go hand in hand i it's because of the journey that she had been on and she instilled a lot of that in and just going to sit in her trailer and her little motorhome shed a mo- which is poetic she lives and that guy never comes around anymore and i thought you know if i don't ever eat a cupcake again in my life to keep that guy from dragging me down how it's easy to confuse physiological responses with emotional responses and how if you are having an emotional response ah everything yeah and i mean sugar is in everything and and the big thing i suffered depression with so many people do on expectation you know there's a lot of frustration that comes from expectation and so how do you let all that go how do you how do you free yourself from all that is in my ears and it almost popped and i became conscious in a way that i don't remember 'cause we go through our life eating tons of sugar and carbohydrates into a hole and beating me up i i'm never going to miss sugar again the rest of my life i'm glad to hear you say that because i i have talked to a lot of people about people to believe that i was from new york there was no way that i was ever gonna see they're just you know i didn't have that that that new york state kind of you know they're very similar so insidious because certainly in the case of alcohol or weed the before full metal jacket before jacket really early on in my career i done the movie that broke broke me really big was robert it with marijuana make you get paranoia who and sugar causing inflammation and in causing so did you ever smoked marijuana no i did i i've maybe done it like eight times in my entire life and the last time was almost twenty years ago and i was can convince yourself that it's for a variety of reasons i've appeaser shed or i saw this is that or the world's against me or blah blah when in fact it's like oh i probably either did well my daughter is it that that that the wisdom that she has the she shares with me and the encouragement that she gives me when you feel like it gets rid of your bones get rid of your atrophy and and so she she keeps me in the game oh that's good i mean i i've started friend of mine recommend i i tell you what diet is so important to this part is an adjunct of this journey and giving up sometimes that especially as you get older i think that it gets easier to say i'd you know i'm just going to stay home shirt and she kicks in in the ass and tells me oxygen and nutrients to your to the tissues of your brain and slows down the the passed the information traveling across the network of neurons i've been watching these really great videos of him on youtube and and there are some things we like well you'd probably have to be a buddhist monk to why some of these things but for the most part other generations giving me generation z. yeah you know which is wonderful you know to one of the things that you have to remain as relevant i did want to ask you when you go through the junkets and you get like your top three questions what do people ask you about the most is it is it about stranger things now paranoid i think that all the marijuana does is open the door to what's going on within the the the you you actually are paranoid and the marijuana get back out there and go and go you know keep keep moving because when you stop moving you get brittle sure it's as your mind i just i never liked it always made me paranoid that's why i brought it up so if you think of sugar is something that has a physiological effect on your body and causes you to have a it and hydrate a too much sugar in your case or whatever and so it it's nice i think for people and we do have to constantly be reminded of these things because they're so easy to forget got it because in the same way that you open source acting teach it's just helpful for people because they see you as an had an incredibly successful career and much in the way that you were so so i made it difficult to say no and i'm glad i said yes of course because i know that noah most people no one's really got it super figure it out you know like even the even the the yogis and the monks still have human go be really cool to be elvis you know look how that poor guy died yeah you know what i mean like in the toilet of course yeah exactly so no one is and a part of the conversation so stranger things has has provided that the the the duffer brothers are wonderfully talented young men and i'm an asteroid with and so i think it's just good to realize that nothing is idealize in when you by the way or drugs or or prescription drugs are sugar it is that that instant gratification lures you in it is almost like a it is almost like a parasite and you know but they really knew my career they they they knew moments like subtle moments and and when and you know they really did talk me into doing the show because i didn't i wasn't keen on it i don't like playing hateful people they were trying to talk me into doing the show i was in england working on a project there and we had a long long conversation on the phone and the detailed about four metal jacket isn't about vision quest like what are the what what what are the ones that you get yet today it's always stranger things stranger things is giving me a whole the details that they knew of my career was just flattering semi they'd new things that i didn't think anybody new and and so much like yourself so it's a global phenomenon that that kind of thing didn't didn't exist before before the internet you know the the possibility of probably played in eighty territories around the world netflixing one hundred sixty two territories around the world the only place i think it's not as china and north korea of becoming a youtube star that that that plays all over the world you know that's so interesting because i think we still think of the idea jacket i dunno funds the right word i mean it's not fun but i mean like as an actor fund no not at all but again this is how the business has changed there was never you know full metal jacket might be the most successful film of my career but it's that's one of those magical things that i think having a long career gives you the gift of i'm sure you've worked on stuff before we were like oh my god no no no raw brutal i kept a diary while i was making the film i only made twenty the biggest thing on netflix this was one of those examples of we're all giving the same equipment we all the same cameras lenses and everything and it seemed like you know the meat-packing store in the fifth avenue store and he really loved my book and he said hey what if we could turn your book into an app and i said what do you mean about stranger things the no about a lot of movies that come out in the theaters eight more people play call of duty of course that's what you wanna get just making you what do you say that what do you mean what do you mean what do you mean like it's good and i think it good that you i think it's good that your struggles with depression that you that you're open the way our brains classified information but we sometimes don't think of ood lease there are so big with when you start digging into the data you're like yeah way more people of art is wonderful yeah and thank you and then the book wasn't available anymore so i met a young guy who apps and we'll make this incredible interactive book that sounds amazing how do you do that and he goes that's the hard part now i have to figure out how to do it and he did it and it's that could do something but to teach people what you could do on a mac you know that was very important to him so he put these theaters in the stores where people could come in and be part of these it feels good for a second but then it's in there does the real damage and it makes you want more of that thin so fucked up within the case of marijuana and feeling he's gonna be huge and then maybe it wasn't the thing that i was going to be and this it's sorta felt like netflixing even know what to do with africa just put it out we'll see what happens and it becomes the kids were charming and the the they proficient at directing and and the stories were interesting but it didn't feel like something that would become a global phenomenon talk to malcolm mcdowell and ryan ryan wow berry linden i can't think of his name ryan o'neal she's sorry ryan the clockwork orange was i think one of the fastest films he ever shot i think it was done in less than eight or nine weeks i'm i don't don't quote me sure sure thousand of the books because it was a metal covered book and it has a serial number on the back of the book if you have one flipped the book over and look there's a serial number because i wanted to make it something collectible like if you have an ipad app it's not an expensive app i think it's three dollars but it's a it's a real you know the reason i mentioned is not because i want to try to sell them and it's because that if you're curious about stanley kubrick full metal jacket and would like a peek behind the curtain i it's it's you know do you want to be rich and famous make make successful shooter game was probably the wrong way to phrase this but was fully worked for steve jobs he worked at apple and he created the theater spaces in in the in the story because steve jobs knew that it was important not just to have a computer you are sort of like passing down it's almost a like a a knowledge of emotional genes that you are and he goes well i'd have you record the book and then we'll do some original music and sound effects and we'll take all the photographs that you took on the set and use the medium format roll affleck's camera to take pictures on the set he said we'll blow those will digitize those those hi hi rez hi rez scans of the photos these conversations you know fifty seat theater seventy five seat theater and adam rockoff was the person who is responsible in new york city opened the soho story opening pretty fast but it's an amazing app and quite simply if you asked me what was kubrick like i'd say that he was like the wizard of oz you know the the wish that they had kept a diary on the set so that they could have done something similar you know taken the stories that they had a very linden was ah the the what he the image that he manipulated and created and projected to the world was like the all powerful laws that big you know screaming similar to full metal jacket it just went on and on i was in england for two years i'm full metal jacket on my the malcolm mcdowell movie i think that that gets on you from growing up in new york city you have because i've heard i've heard a couple of key words since we've been talking i've heard booming voice projection you see the lion and the tin man in this care crow judy garland looking at this powerful powerful person and they're terrified shaking in their boots and the little dog toto goes in pulls the curtain back and you what's revealed is that it's a man you think from baseball too you know other movies or some film that he'd seen he was the person who introduced me to barron aronovski that he thought the darren was really stick kid from from the bronx who wanted to make movies was obviously extraordinarily talented extraordinarily talented argued three there may be four of the images in the traveling kubrick exhibit in exhibition from the film christopher nolan ten bags of diamonds seattle like that but also i wonder how lia genius one of the most amazing filmmakers ever get behind the motion picture camera but what the book also reveals that he's probably one of the best producer about the last few years of his personal life i doesn't seem like maybe he died a super happy guy but i don't know maybe he did i don't know i mean ah the idea of genius in the idea of how someone can go so far off into their own like i think we need to be tethered when people sort of go off always wants to just let them do their own thing and keep them happy but i don't know if that ever leads to a great place you know i mean is he someone who i don't know that untethered they can kind of spin out of control because i feel like we as humans we need structure and we need other people and if someone is considered a genius that no one wants to go near them in everyone made a couple prints of that the you know big big prints and you know i was doing dark knight rises and so i told nolan about it he said it was like working on the most incredible independent film ever that's incredible i didn't know that i'm glad that that affects this and i'm glad that you kept that diary i encouraged angry and dismiss them and like you know you see i'm talking to you know this is important why are you interrupting me and we'd remained friends after making talented filmmaker i dunno ever contacted darren to tell him he was very personable and would write letters to people you know so these short you know you get a letter from stanley kubrick lebanon's i made one and gave him oh that's nice that's really nice it's also i mean listen to him that must be like you know like you could have just given him a i was witnessed to his dismissive nece you know that when i'd be with him and we'd be talking about something that somebody would come in and he'd get stations and then when he was getting ready to start doing eyes wide shut with nicole kidman tom cruise has the the the beautiful shot of stanley kubrick's director's chair that i took oh wow the is on the a a there's that's ever made movies before and the oftentimes on the film there were more no more than ten people on set they're working recoup reykdal well i always wanted to do something with the photographs the photographs are beautiful and kubrick has many of the photographs i called him and i said hey stanley 'cause i sent him something i'd sent him this this piece of equipment for a for a motion picture camera and he said the things that he was devoted to and at that moment and maybe for the next until that film was completed that i would be that person who interrupted mike and it's quite something to be a young filmmaker so if it darren if you're listening if you never knew that he was a fan of your work he'd seen pie i mean prince and gave to him so now they're in their state the i think there's three or four of them in the the the i i know it's i don't think i know there are he and i when we were talking and i didn't i didn't want to be a first of all it's hurtful sure and but second of all i didn't want to be a distraction all metal jacket we spoke can biweekly you know and he was somebody when you got on the phone it was going to be a couple of our session talking about it to check you can also get the audio book if you don't have an ipad what's it called by the way of full metal jacket diary did you did you make the book right away or did you wait until after miss virginia because that is coming out on the eighteenth of october i think eighteen and do business and she's great such the sense that he was being dismissive in you i knew that when he started a project like eyes wide shut that that he had this unbelievable focus okay yeah then it's almost like the universe now you're ready yeah and that's what happened for her and i'm so happy for her success i think that the story so inspiring because before orange came along she was like fuck all this i don't wanna do this anymore and it's that classic story of when performers let go because i i knew how much he loved his work and i didn't want to be something that got in the way of that well maybe i mean hopefully if there's a way that you're able to find peace with the fact that the race begins on october eighteenth for best actress you know i think that her performances extraordinary you know the film isn't like wonderful human being i had her on a show i was doing once and she just was so kind and generous and and i and atas yeah of course it does but it but but maybe it doesn't diminish all the other experiences you know that you had people just can't with opportunities that we may not had and in in this case education and her son is going to a very rough public school and virginia walden ford there's an african proverb says if you want to go fast go alone if you wanna go far go together and this is what it would be to go to the private school so why shouldn't you be able to get a voucher from the from the state to be able to send your son to the school that you choose a of of a better life for her style for her son and that's a universal story that we all want to to improve upon the lives of our children to to provide them this is a private school and says you know i wish that was someplace that you could go to and she goes in and tries to get in and of course it's expensive to go to private school but she discovers that the it wasn't personal function of his personality i know that because obviously he meant you meant something to him still hurt of course it does of course matthew what do you want and and i said i'm sorry stanley there's someone at the door let me let me call you back and hung up and that was the last time i spoke to him because you just so she knew that in order to be able to accomplish the things she needed to do for her son she was going to need a group of people and so she these are people that if you tornadoes if you tried to throw a lasso around it they dragged across the country for their powerful people but but in the case of ms DD detach when you know and that was probably just part of whatever was going on his head but i wanted to sort of wrap this up and talk about double you just literally just stare at your phone all day long yeah never do or think about anything or anyone else and understand in in this case ouzo deuba is fighting for her the the the education of her child the the the opportunity activated the community she collected signatures and and now over a sense this story began over a decade ago the public education is they're spending fourteen thousand dollars a year on each student in washington washington DC for the children to go to school and it's the same eh the the not the not a pilot to eat but the new miracle symbol but we yeah we had these the person who who cracks the cracks the mystery of cancer oh my gosh yeah yeah so it is much the same way that stella adler said to you doing if we're not uplifting our communities and instead of joe and especially now when it's so easy to just live in your own private is to send them to if they if you want to go to private school why should i be able to get a voucher take that tax money and put it into a private school and that's the in story to destroy their economy burn they're all trees and it was a city that was made wealthy by olives and the pressing the olives so at all norma rae that sally field won the academy award for but it is reminiscent of the story of a of a of norma rae was fighting for unions and van is based on a real person or is it her name is virginia walden ford and she is she's a force of nature as is the these are oh she's approved upon the lives of thousands of of impoverished inner city youth and they have a ninety percent graduation in order to fill the full impact of the story and i really encourage your listeners to go see this movie in in a movie theater and hopefully it's a packed house asked me if i'd like to see some of the antiquities in turkey and i said sure i'd love to see something so they gave me a list of options and there was this one place called turmoils ending that it is important to detach and reconnect with people and try to uplift and try to do you try to do good for for people yeah i've seen this movie twice now i saw it in philadelphia you have a responsibility to share with people and share with your community and in this case it's the same kind of like we have to we have to fight for people because what are we you know the the the one girl that we i was introduced to is in oncology who's who's got such bright future as an ecologist and might be us and talia and tell you turkey so they said would you like to go to terminus and i said yeah that sounds cool and it was this the legend had it that this was walk through this town and you could feel where the the soup was the the the the market where people sold vegetables and fish and and and you're eddie screening and new york city it's parsons school of design and you know there's some movies that a communal experience is necessary then i was in turkey in a place called it'll come to me in a second but while i was at that film festival they uh and it fell into ruin you had to climb up like a donkey trail in order to get to this city and as opposed to italy tell helped to improve people's lives and and to see each other in different ways we even through comedy sure through the comedies extraordinary city fell into ruin and later on it was a greek city and then later on the romans came and it became a roman roman city and gene was very different than what what it would be if you you know watching it on ipad or a large screen television in your living room that it's it's it's a movie where everything's kind of behind defense in turkey they don't have the money to keep you from touching and antiquity and the town that alexander the great had not captured in concord this town and so he couldn't because it was too high to well-fortified on the top of mountain so he commits virginia hopefully in a movie theater you are having an experience with a flash community that forms an organism and on the way become that you can watch entertainment in an isolated way i mean you know with the advent of television you could just watch it at home but before that wondering through this town and you can see there was a place where the guy the guy that was with me said this was a gymnasium and he said if you look here you can see the footprint of the epidemic host i mean it's only in the last i don't know sixty years maybe that entertainment has serves to be seen in theaters and you know what you're talking about about the impact of telling stories i because of my work have had the pleasure of traveling all over the world because it's it it is a movie that empowering and and it's about community and the experience of watching the film with a with a large audience on a big screen look down at the performers standing on the stage and all for the purpose of hearing people sing songs and tell stories that that that's how important it is that what we something that's invaluable to our culture because it makes us better people it shapes our our our societies and yeah and it was do that is to our culture we generate we create something that doesn't have any tangible value but that is invaluable to our culture that the the stories that we especially comedy you're going to movies are going to theater i think part of it was a communal experience you know when you go see comedy or you go see a play or something or when you go see is it affects people's lives and and it's it's a it's an incredibly honorable profession in oftentimes people dismiss actors and say what does that person right at the of the students which is extraordinary ninety percent and so many of those children have gone on to get college educations and oh you know you're having conversations you're exchanging ideas you're all shared an experience which is why we started forming societies the call day darren and the frigid barium so there was cold water hot water and tepid for bathing and then you come around the corner and an absolute pleasure to talk to you and do you have any kind of final just some fun yoga wisdom just something something to send people away in a stella adler way tell the truth i mean it might be just your truth but but you know i i think you know we always with someone who's certainly someone who you said listen i've i've struggled with depression obviously sugar cutting out sugar has helped but what are some mantras or what are some things that those elements were very important water air and fire so the sun the air and the sea and and this is where you were seeing sitting you would have looked at that and these were sort of wells where we can show up and kind of do that and so yes i mean on the one hand you know is is being you go back to some simple things that you think that have helped guide you through things that you think might be able to pass onto other people they're carved into the mountain was this amphitheater looking out at the sea and at that moment that i was there the son was about to set on on on the i don't think anything is predestined you know that that we have the ability in our lives to change the course of human history that if we unbelievable to be able to forgive and then what are you joyful about like what makes you like just to sort of wrap this up on on ah i one of my favorite parables from the bible is those among you that are without sin cast the for stone because that parable if practiced oh you get pressured into doing things that you don't necessarily want to do and saying no sometimes it's the most terrifying thing in the world because you think that you will fall out it is and kind of take the take the power away from it oftentimes but but the so we're we're part of this art form that that that tells story so that we could that we need each other to form these societies we have to talk to each other we have to commune and these are it'd be you know what it what it allows us to be able to to peak at the underbelly of things that were frightened to talk about you know and laugh at it and see how be rejected but but ultimately learning to say no is one of the things that lead you to a greater understanding of free will you know and and oh may be those things but it is also it does have a communal function and so i do think i do think it is important and and it's been such it's just an actor was that guy he's just in but but what we do we spend our lives studying and looking at things and and and we create you know it's been almost forty years and you go through you go through difficulties you go through dark times in hard times but being on a note that where you like what are you what are you joyful about it could it could be like there's a flower that i like or i this experience something that you have to fix on your own and having that discussion and realizing that it made our marriage of it took it like it was like indian or an actor is it the same as being you know a nuclear physicist or someone who like dig sewage to bring water to bring water to has the ability to change the course of life on the planet and just so the concept of forgiveness is which parables about is best friend you know she's she's my confidant she's my savior you know she's she's literally saved me she's brought me back from death and so i love that that is as children that it's much easier to tell the truth 'cause you don't have to remember your allies but but it it's it's so three and a beautiful gentle breeze blowing in from the from the sea and i knew to the greeks and the romans the what we realized was those dark times those difficult times in a relationship are a personal problems they have nothing to do with the marriage the marriage isn't the better because this is worth you know baking so that is a gorgeous piece of advice and you're just such a pleasure to talk to thank you gene you know to tell the truth because and learn to say no you know that that you know that there'd be things that that you'll get pressure especially young people tres if you can october eighteenth if you can't for some reason it'll be on VOD on various platforms and men come back anytime seriously thank you it just be yours and so you have to fix it and she can't help you fix it and i couldn't help her fix her menopause or or the fact that she was becoming an empty nester that's bag horrible being guy roles and i thought what happened how did i go from being a leading man to plane the guy that the leading man is going to you know something to my wife and she came to me a couple days later and she said does that mean that you're asking for a divorce and i was like oh god no why why do you say that no there's nothing wrong with our marriage very a seminal important thing to to understand is that there was the the marriage was not the problem the marriage it was something you know projecting himself

Upgrading Our Collective Consciousness Matthew Modine : 620

"You might have heard me talk about how with bulletproof radio. I want you to have a high return on your investment. If you spend our time listening to this episode you'd better get more than an hour's worth the value and i've got something pretty cool for you right now. How would you like to get a free bottle of the most patented probiotic supplement on the market. These guys are like the navy seals are probiotics but i did. You know that ninety nine percent of the over the counter products don't call is your gut. It's true in fact a lot of studies show that a lot of probiotics just just go through your system and they don't do anything but we do need good bacteria to fight the bad guys. So what do you do. You've probably heard me talk about p three o._m. Because i'm an actual customer and that's why i'm pretty excited that i got the guys at optimize irs to give you a free bottle today. What makes us different is that it's pre-olympic means. It actually eats protein. It's also also got some antiviral antiretroviral properties which are pretty cool and it's designed to get rid of pathogens and waste and it's maintainable in the human digestive system. It's is not supposed to colonize once in your body it doubles about every twenty minutes and helps to push out the bad bacteria before it safely eliminated. It does its job. It's in and out of the body in three or four days says and it's patented so what it does better than any other strain that i've been able to find is fight off the bad guys in your gut and also can enhance fat loss austin can improve your digestion and stuff like that but it's very unusual approach to probiotics. Here's the crazy part. My friends at by optimize. Irs are just going to give you a free bottle. No tricks no force continuity nothing slimy because i wouldn't let that happen and they're giving you a three hundred sixty day money back guarantee good peak three o._m. Dot com slash dave free. That's p three o._m. Dot com slash dave free all one word you'll automatically get access to your unique coupon code to claim your free bottle. One per household limit lease. It's ballot while supplies last <music> bulletproof stage of high performance. You're listening to bulletproof. Radio with dave asprey is cool factor the day hey is that magnetic coils could breakdown micro plastic pollution it turns out that our water treatment plants aren't set up to filter out micro-plastics six these are those little exfoliating beads that you shouldn't be buying or flakes they get broken off larger pieces of plastic like water bottles shoes tires things like that and those particles take decades to break down but there's a new nanomaterials that produced plastic degrading chemicals that can break down way more quickly gli in fact that those nanomaterials cleaned water got half their micro plastic in hours and this is based on research out of australia in order there for us to practice biohacking which change the environment around you and inside of you to have full control of your own biology. Water is a major part of the environment around you but inside of you. It's around seventy percent of you so having some clean water me as you are. After all a bag of mostly water you might you might want to get on top of that. This water purification method uses nitrogen coated carbon nanotubes and when they mix them with a certain compound containing associate they generate reactive oxygen species which just crumble micro-plastics into their basic chemicals and if the water's warm it works better and then mangoni is is imbedded in each tube and it makes a magnetic which means you can fish out of the water when you're done with them that is awesome an amazing and interesting to me and i hope it is youtube because if you ever find yourself feeling like you know what we've got too much pollution got too much garbage. There's no hope it it turns out. There's a lot of cool tech quyen more than you could. Possibly imagine coming online to solve these problems and a huge number people really motivated to help fix <hes> those problems so i'm more than i've ever been about our ability to take control the environment around us and to help it do what it's supposed to do. Naturally today's guest almost doesn't need an introduction. He's really well known from his acting roles in tv film theater is a film producer juicer director screenwriter for nearly four decades in fact he was called one of the best most adaptable film actors of his generation by legendary near times film critic vincent canby. He's worked with oliver stone stanley kubrick and a long list of the most famous mr actors including spike lee you might have seen him in full metal jacket most recently in stranger things i'm talking about none other then matthew modine who actually turned down the role of maverick topgun because i didn't think as right movie for him to be and <hes> he's kind of well known for doing that what you might not know about matthew modine though is that he's a tireless activist and environmentalist and in end the interview today. We're gonna talk about consciousness his own evolution of consciousness. We're gonna talk about what's happening in hollywood around men and women are about plastic any ocean which was a major thing that he's doing and his own path of conscious instant spiritual and how that is relevant to you. This is a fantastic interview and a chance to talk to one of the the more influential people in hollywood about what's worked what hasn't worked go behind the scenes know what goes on inside his his mind when he's acting and all the weird stuff you never thought would happen and a sex scene in a movie but he's going to tell you i i appreciate you coming on the show today matthew. It's it's it's an honor to have you on and it's honor that you too okay labs and all that stuff and so <hes>. I'm not not here to plug any of that stuff. I wanted to talk about what you're doing with <hes> micro-plastics and plastic and just general consciousness and sort of your you're you're evolution as a human being <hes> is what i'd like to share with with guests at is something you want want me to highlight in particular that will help one of the charitable things you're working on at the end of the show k. You've probably heard of matthew modine. But where would you go to learn nor about well. I'm not raising any any money for any <hes> any charity. There's organization that we set up called. Do one do one dot org and the idea behind that was <hes> you know. My father was a drive in theater manager and a <hes> i i'm the youngest of seven and so you work your way up the ladder so the worst job that we all had was cleaning the bathrooms picking up garbage. It's driving people out windows of their cars. So i began there and is you work up the ladder to become a lot way or work in the snack bar. You know less sturdy job <hes> but one night in my dad's drive in the ladies room toilets were overflowing. Somebody flesh something down the toilet it constantly back up in there was there was har all over the floor and it was about an inch deep and i had the bucket in and i was staring araneta i did. I didn't know where to begin to begin cleaning this mess up and my father came up from behind me put his hand on my shoulder he said i know it's horrible. He said you can get angry. Worry about it. You can go try to find the person sponsoring for it but it's not going to clean it up and i i don't know if i was conscious of it at the time but i knew that there was a great metaphor that in what my father told me is that when there's a mess we all have a responsibility to do something to clean it up so as we were children we kept moving from driving to drive into drive in and i thought my father was this kind of rehabilitator of drive ins because we'd always fix drive arrive in south and then we'd move but what i learned was that we were moving because they were tearing the drive ins down that the land was worth more than the drive in and it wasn't isn't just the drive ins the disappeared. It was what surrounded the drive ins because drive-ins were always out away from where people lived away from subdivisions and an industry would be quiet and dark so we were the when i was born in california we were surrounded by cherry trees and watermelons and cantaloupes cantaloupes and tomato fields and when we moved to utah it was a lot of fruit trees apricots and apples and pears and and and when you'd walk to school in the morning and in those fall this fall days all the smell of rotting fruit was it was so sensuous and in the springtime the blossoms it came from those trees and when i went back to visit a friend <hes> and discovered that drive in my father had rehabilitated we've been torn down and not just the drive in but all of the orchards surrounded <unk> i began to it was it was coincidentally around the time of that song that pay paradise and put up a parking lot john that the this became a reality in my life that we were losing we were losing nature and we were losing <hes> our connection to the earth and it that's that's when my journey of consciousness began that that i started wondering what consciousness was is that those trees that were torn down in there in the earth that was covered up with with blacktop. Did the earth have a consciousness. Those trees have consciousness <hes>. Was it a coincidence that that a tree looks like a trachea and lungs when you when you turn it upside down that that exchange of gases between a plant in a human <hes> is a is that a spiritual and sacred thing that my exit elation elation trees inhalation and the plants inhalation or the it's exultation provides me with the oxygen to breed and its questors carbon carbon that you begin to understand that this <hes> this chain of life the intimacy of relationships between all the species of the planets. Let's has kind of consciousness a collective consciousness and and <hes> i've spent thirty years trying to understand it and when i was at the convention that you had in los angeles and listening to all the incredible speakers that you brought to to to share information with all of us it was this kind of consciousness although it wasn't mentioned by by by by the name of consciousness was collected consciousness that existed in that in that kamei's seminar in los angeles. There's something you mentioned there around a a spiritual thing and a lot of times when you get into accademia you get into neuroscience or you get into any of the heck real estate development sort of thing. It seems like there is a question question of is there such a thing as spiritual and if so how do you define it these thirty years looking at this. How do you draw the line between what is the spiritual versus. What is not spiritual well. We're none of us know where we came from and we don't really have any idea where we go so when we're at the end of the day when when our lives come to an end i received what i believe is great spiritual counsel from the roman emperor marcus aurelius through his book meditations marcus released was destroyed and <hes> he he talked about <hes> a leaf on a tree that in the spring the bud pushes fourth and a leaf is born in in the fall of <unk> falls off balls to the earth decomposes becomes <hes> something that nurtures the the the trees that will come in the following spring frank <hes> and that he questions that are our lives any more significant than than that leaf on a tree is our consciousness snus different as i said before than than does that leave have a consciousness <hes> bit spirituality. I don't know i don't know what it is. I think spirituality is a kind of connectedness to to all of the the life that exists on the planet the primitive cultures that that <hes> that were were pagans worshipped the earth in the animals that they that they surrounded themselves were surrounded them and whose lives they would take a whenever <hes> the life of an animal that they that they killed in order to nurture their bodies. There was always a kind of respect and ceremony. That was <hes> an acknowledgement of of taking that life in order for you to have by <hes>. I believe it was told stories said as long as they're abattoirs slaughter houses places where people do the killing for you <hes> they'll be wars because we we lose that let's call it a spiritual connection connection to those animals that we're eating it becomes something that we're just consuming rather than acknowledging that you took that aig from from from chicken <unk> whose whose intention was to bring forth a alive and and we've taken that life and consumed that life and we we have have to acknowledge and respect the life of the animals that we take in order for us to have our life even when you watch a a lion we'd takes down at another animal. There seems to be <hes> <hes> the the acknowledgement of surrender by the animal the deer the antelope. It's it's it's it's dying and the the the the mountain lion or lion cougar that it's taking that life it there seems is to be a respect in in that moment of death. Yeah you can tell the predator knows what it's doing <hes> but it isn't done with with hate or anger in thank god. It's just that i it sure what you're saying there. It's one of the reasons that i live on a on a smaller ganic farm. We have eight pigs and ten sheep right now and we had a conversation with <hes> with my two kids yesterday about which of the sheep we're going to eat and they're not at all traumatized by they know like the the sheep every day <hes> and they also are saying well. We should keep that she because she has a really good personality really good bowl and we should be that she and these other ships though she are there standoffish. They're kind of jerks so let's eat those ones but there is no. There's no hate or or or badness in. It's actually just sounds a little bit dark. Say it tastes better if you honored the animal and you actually felt it and you actually took care of it and you know that had a good life you know that even had a good death and i go to those links <hes> when in everything that i everything that i do to the extent that i know how to to do it. <hes> and i don't think that it's it's respectful of my own biology to say i'm never eating animal again because that whole cycle of life if the sheep don't poop on the ground can't grow good vegetables to eat right i haven't i don't think you can break that cycle effectively do you do you worry about that. I know you have you've done enormous things environmentally tick around plastics and all that stuff but i mean have you decided to become a vegan or vegetarian or something like that because of those principles symbols of well i i live with vegan. My wife is is about a. I don't know more than twenty five years vegan before that vegetarian <hes> she did it for health health reasons she she discovered that there were certain things that when she a she'd have a reaction in her body and so through the process of elimination she pounded diet that worked for her could earn i. I don't think that that the diet necessarily works for everybody but but it works for her and because she doesn't want me to cook animals in the house the let alone at a house i have to honor her so when when i get hungry i go to bullet coffee and get some get something nutritious for my body and and more importantly not to just plug the the i guess we can call it a restaurant as on a monica right in santa monica <hes> but it's you know that the the the food that you're eating is organic in that the the animals have beaten food that they're supposed to be eating yeah <unk> and <hes> in you know their grass fed animals hopefully living a wonderful lives before they they go to slaughter. I do my best in in a coffee shop <hes> but it's it's interesting a lot of the small family farmers the ranchers my original vision there was hey every month. I'm going to feature beef or lamb from a small local farm and maybe it's only one or two animals betting is going to be an extra three bucks. Buy you can get you know the the stink from from. I'm somewhere special sort of like you have wine but then you find out that unless they're slaughtered in u._s._d._a. Certified things restaurants aren't allowed to serve them even if you can buy them at home <hes> so i was blocked by regulations from doing that which was sad because a rancher who's connected to the animals will actually say you know what i i don't want to go to an industrial slaughterhouse for my precious animals because they don't treat the animals well so they'll go to a local butcher who gives the animal a good death and end butchers the animal in an appropriate proper way but then they can't sell it at a restaurant and that stymied me all of this problem unfortunate. There are some good commercial grade. They'll mail the mail a beef and things like that but even some of that you can buy but you can't urban restaurant but that said everything is grass-fed organic. You know to the very highest end that i can legally do but doesn't surprising that we have a regulatory system that prevents good stuff yeah. It's kind of shocking. I mean does that mean. If i went out and caught a fish that i couldn't bring it in and serve it in the restaurant if i went up to alaska and caught some salmon and brought him in and says eight where you go you if you caught it and you ran the restaurant you could but the restaurant probably couldn't buy salmon from someone who caught the salmon unless they had a commercial fishing license and unless the salmon hammond was packed in a u._s._d._a. certified facility. That's kind of crazy crazy. It is crazy. I could see you know the the f._d._a. Has done a great. The job of of increasing food safety unfortunate also increases food waste beyond belief so you asked me about plastic <hes> when and when i was in college i was studying astronomy and oceanography and the astronomy was going to crush me because math and emotionally i could handle it because the fastness of the universe was too great hundred <unk>. We'd we'd here is children that there are more grains of sand and on the earth as than there are more stars in the sky than there are grants grains of sand on the beach and anybody who's ever sounding a beach. You just think that's impossible. Look look at all the grains of sand it couldn't be and the hubble space telescope has shown us the possibilities real real <hes> it. It's just so big <hes> i i sat at my great grandmother's me who crossed the united states chewed born in eighteen ninety across the country in a wagon and and <hes> sub sitting her knee in nineteen sixty nine when we landed on the moon and she talked to me about all the things she'd seen in her life television and radio with first world war the second world war vietnam war the korean war <hes> commercial air flight television you know it was it was just extraordinary. She said in here hi sit watching men go where humans never gone before walking on surface of the moon and <hes> that that look back that the <hes> the they call it earthrights the really famous photograph <hes> it it. It was a one of those things that altered my conscience didn't consciousness again was the the the fragility of our planet and what you saw when you looked from the moon at the earth was that there was really only one ocean that we've we've. We're the ones that divided it up into different things but the circulatory system of the ocean. It's it's it's. It's like our bodies that it's flowing there. There are a five gyor's in in in the ocean where where the the ocean mixes and meet each other and and maybe information is shared mixed together <hes> but one of those those this things that's mixed together in those jars is plastic <hes> plastic. We now live in what we call the anthropomorphic anthro for more. I can say that we're it's <unk>. The period the period of human beings so <hes> to to have epoch named after you are or something event like the meteorite hitting the earth wiping out the dinosaurs that for something to receive the name has to have an impact of something like million years that in a million years time there will be plastics and ceramics and concrete if you know if if we're no longer here that will be our footprint that we left upon the earth and <hes> the plastics the that we use is five hundred million straws a day in the united states. I commend you and i congratulate you for removing them from from there. The bulletproof brew coffee shops. You did that matthew because i i insisted when we opened everything be biodegradable so all of the plastic cups and all that stuff. They're all corn based by the way i'm opposed to corn agriculture. It's just the best i could do at least everybody and then you came along at oak grey labs there <hes> <hes> when we met and you're like hey dave you still have plastic straws biodegradable it yeah but they take thirty years buddy. You better cell placing with paper but it was seriously because you told me to do it and i had thought of it thank you. You're does after the whole time so as you start to study this this problem of plastics <hes> that when we see all the bottles on the beach and stuff that that is a problem that is a great gigantic problem but the the greater problem is the decomposing of those plastics so as they as they they stay out in the seat in all kinds of different plastic. That's it's been dumped in the in the ocean for for decades now <hes> the sun and saltwater <hes> start to degrade the plastic and it comes apart it it doesn't it doesn't disappear it just becomes smaller and smaller and becomes what we call micro-plastics and in those gyor's that you heard about the great the great great pacific garbage patch in civic ocean <hes> it's up toward a alaska knocked the coast of canada is there's there's one of those gyor's tires where the where the ocean is spinning like an eddie in the stream and it sorts out the plastic in on different parts of the shores different different kinds of plastics appear on it sorts it you know it sorts it out but where did the besides breaking down where these micro-plastics coming from a large part of it is synthetic clothing shoes made out of plastic that is we walk. Our shoes wear <music> out. We don't think we're not conscious of back that the shoes wear out and become micro-plastics they become dust like tires going down the road that the millions and millions millions of cars around the world that as their tires where down it becomes the dust and <hes> if you if you go out especially in los angeles and and wipes the surface of anything on any busy street you'll see your hands covered in black dust. 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 capture the carbon but regardless wouldn't just burn plastic be less bad for the environment then unburned plastic floating in the ocean. It's an interesting question. <hes> the cold water in the ocean is is a great layer that sequester carbon on the bottom of the ocean is the ocean seat up <hes> that carbon could be released <unk> in make the air unbreathable if we ended up the ocean that much but burning all the plastic in the ocean wouldn't change temperature in a meaningful way i don't i don't know it's it's. It's scary thing playing god. It is but we're doing it anyway. Yes yeah sorta like if you're gonna eat something like your your wife. I don't eat this because it makes me feel bad and i certainly have foods where i know that my joints hurt so i don't eat that and if they think that the the the the better solution is trying to figure out ways to make shoes tires that that don't don't yeah out of a different material had difficult would that be oh the long term solution no doubt we've got to change how we manufacture stuff. The thing is we gotta clean up the mess. We already made because i'm planning to be here for at least another one hundred fifty or so years as i don't want to wallow in that stuff so what's up one right away <unk> start figuring out the tack to to replace things that aren't sustainable and step to clean up the garbage and i'm i you know ma- maybe someday i'll be an economic comic <hes> position to just fund the barge with young was worth of smoke cleanup stuff and just go out there and instead of trying to haul it back to to the land to recycle it and guess what newsflash most places don't recycle plastic you separate it out and you feel like a good person wash it arguments wasting water because they throw it in the dump anyway right so like what do we do. I'm stymied with where we are now and i just worked in mississippi and they had they had the no recycling facilities at all that that <hes> that you know coming from new york or los angeles where there's an effort and as you say that the efforts that we make are often and feudal because they they will separate the garbage in new york city and the garbage men come in l. goes in the back of the same truck it was it just all a waste of time but in mississippi there there was not even an effort to to to recycle anything that i don't know what they do with it if if they just take it out and bury it or if they're burning garbage burning burning a is you say it's wonderful. I never thought that you could a safely. Burn plastic can scrub it and keep those <hes> digress dioxins right the burning classic from entering into the atmosphere <hes>. If there's a way to in to prevent that happening that could be a good solution but but i thought it was so wonderful when <hes> or you know big clothing manufacturers like a nut north face but <hes> you know they were patti go near they were making clothing out of recycled plastic bottles and how how terrific but but again those plastic move clothing materials and yoga pants things with synthetic fabrics when they wash they degrade and they create another kind of micro plastic um so so finding a solution to the garment garment industry is probably second embrace polluter on the planet <hes> a pair of blue jeans. I i heard it. I mean it's an extraordinary <unk> frightening number. I think it's like sixteen thousand five hundred hundred gallons of water or more go into the manufacturing from from growing the cotton to making making the pair of jeans is is consumed zoomed in a pair of denim pants on. That's unacceptable and those are cotton denim pants right. Yes at least it's biodegradable i i have i'm i am not perfect from a clothing perspective by a long shot but if i can get wool wolves awesome because it doesn't get body odor and it will not make micro particles in the ocean it's fully biodegradable and if you fed the sheep right it's actually buildings soil throwing wool and soil is the greatest carbon capture technology analogy. We have absolutely that's at. It's not exactly vegan <hes> then again. I'm not big it either so i'm okay with that. You got wool cotton <hes> <hes> and you've got him and him is clearly like the most efficacious way to to make clothes so hopefully as we move forward. We'll have more uh-huh more clothing made out of those things but when it comes to the good old fashioned. What are we gonna drink out of thing. Do you have any thoughts about what what's what's the best the best thing other than obvious having filtered water available with good filters which has never happened in most places <hes> what what what do you what do you do when you wanna get a bottle of something yeah. That's i mean the you know what would be the solution. The greatest what is the greatest solution is to make the water supply safe and and like in los angeles they say when you drink water from the tap. You're getting eating <hes> hormones. You're getting from birth control birth control <hes> the you know the drugs that people that are that are taking drugs and when they earned and the urinate it gets into the they're not able to filter these things really successfully out of the public utility water. Um i am so <hes> i have a here in los angeles. I have a whole house water. Filtration system to remove as much of the crap is i can <hes> <hes> lucky me that i'm able to afford something like that but how importunate that that the citizens of bus angeles drinking in water that's compromised that has much chlorine in it and we we know what the effects of drinking consuming a bathing and chlorine. It's so wouldn't it. Wouldn't it be a <unk>. A the biggest best solution would be to eliminate bottled water altogether because the water that comes out of the tap is actually shauwie say not full of chemicals and drugs yeah. I i would love that day. It's it's really irritating to me. 'cause you go to restaurants or waters owners filtered and then you drink it well. If by filtered you mean you <hes> did something so it smells a little bit less like chlorine but it's still is clinton and so you can check the box says filtered but we put a pretty extensive filtration stuff in the bowl coffee shop because you can't make good coffee without properly filtered altered water and it has it has to actually drinkable water they go to restaurant and you say i want a glass of water if they filtered even if they're bringing a fancy bottle it doesn't isn't smell filtered and it's not filtered and they didn't get the hormones and drugs but if you go to restaurant that has a five thousand dollar filtering system and the water's totally drinkable. There's no way for you to know you're stuck with. It's kind of a russian roulette thing right or no what i'm getting or i'm going to order a bottle of some some kind of water because i know that's filtered. Hopefully a glass bottle is even ideal there but we have to fix that so you can say filtered with levels one through five life yeah so if you're going to provide water at least we have some standards and all this stuff is so much work to do and there's no real big profitable industry <hes> that's kind of fun matt and that's that's one of those conscious things i i think a lot of a consciousness that we're dealing with his is emergent behavior where it it it. It appears that there's this grand intelligence. What happens is you follow. These small rules infinite numbers of times in these complex happens like how do we how do we build our systems so that we would naturally have proper filtration in restaurants sake. It isn't go to anywhere you wanted to so. I know the water's clean that's. That's the big challenge. How do we change that way. Have you ever thought about that in your quest for consciousness over the last thirty years yes. It's it's. It's it's it's it's unconscionable in. It's unsustainable. I think that <hes> that we that it makes sense to bring water from france to the united states or <hes> bubbled mountain water from any place to to ship ship it thousands of miles when you think of the carbon footprint north <unk> it's insane but so it maybe there's a way if you know they're i don't know how many a million people in los angeles if all of them and they spend twenty dollars a month thirty dollars a month purchasing filtered water roger that they feel is safe if you could say rather than doing get purchasing that water. I'm going to contribute my thirty dollars so two three thousand six hundred dollars or three three hundred sixty dollars a year. It was thirty dollars a year times twelve that three hundred sixty <music> after three hundred sixty dollars a year to the department of of of water to put in a proper water filtration system the guarantees that i'm going to be drinking water. That's as good as artesian water. That's coming from <hes> northern california or or you know from some artisan well <hes> in in in some other country that i would. I would pay that and i would pay for. I would pay three hundred sixty dollars for somebody. You couldn't afford it. You know i would contribute on their behalf and if a million people did that. I think that <hes> in in the city of i don't know tens of millions of people you can see that that would be a very successful system. I i would love to see <hes> more landlords so many people now in l. A. and other places are moving into shared apartment situations or if you're on apartment but the building <music> owners are in a really unique situation to say you know what rent is going to be thirty dollars a month higher here but your water's free and drinkable and i think that's where we're going going. I'm i'm pretty excited about that and and and one wifi why why do we all pay individual wifi win one if here in in venice usc houses are so close together that you can have one wifi they would take care for houses i mean i don't think any of us are doing anything on our wife is would create so so much <hes> activity that that it would slow the internet down. Oh yeah in fact you could have a lot less wifi antennas which would probably increase human in health anyway. 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. It's and and who played those kind of roles were generally a white man and now those roles would be playing by people of color and and women and <hes> in t- to hear their strength their personal strengths their personal stories that it that it it they're part of the fabric of life and they're they're. They're they're an important thread in and you know like a pair of ladies' a nylon stockings it only he takes <hes> a a bumping into something sharp that causes the fabric to come in a undone run <hes> now that what am i i trying to say is that within our d._n._a. <hes> now that we understand what what death is you know and and yuval harari hariri very <hes> in his book homo deos and and was the other sapiens now now that we understand what death and dying is so you know. We have the opportunity to reverse engineer because we we've looked into the d._n._a. And we understand life in in a way that perhaps we <hes> scientifically didn't know if you go back and you look at <hes> drains from hundreds of years ago sometimes thousands of years ago you you find that something that people saw through meditation through spiritual practice you see the d._n._a. Drawn into a <hes> yoga drawings explaining how to do meditation in when they draw the shockers they'd show a person in a denault what that's called when you sit in meditation with your legs folded in your arms out like the buddha a lotus position and then there's those points of the shocker points and i saw drawing from thousands thousands of years ago and they showed that person sitting in the lotus position shocked reports and drawn in front of him was a a helix the double helix <hes> you find double helix egyptian art in in the south american art so those people fool perhaps intuitively knew through their spiritual practice or just they they saw it because their lives were simpler that we were connected by something that looked look like a double helix and and they're thousands of years later you know we make an electron microscope and we're able to look into life and and discover what exists it's the basic core level of of of not just human existence but life and the thing that's different between a treaty ear or another animal. It is just a couple bars in that in that <hes> we're all related that the that all forms of life have share that kind of strand of dna the that's. That's a beautiful thing but so get back to acting now if i'm going to play a hateful the person or a murderer and that's not who i am. I think that if i go searching back in my d._n._a. I'm going to find somebody who is a hateful person or somebody. That was a murderer somebody that did things that were inappropriate. It has to admit the millions of years of evolution. There has to have been somebody in my in my stranded <hes> d._n._a. <hes> that did did those kind of things that the characteristics that i have physically in this body that i lived in my nose my eyes my my hair the texture of my skin <hes> those things are inherited through my d._n._a. Through my ancestors so just as those characteristics are manifested manifested physically the the the characters that i need to play exist in my dna absolutely there's no question so for instance i made a movie called birdie and i dish in for the role of alcoa lombardo which <hes> nicholas cage ended up playing and i i was i was working up in toronto canada on a movie with mel gibson and diane keaton and and alan parker the director of birdie called me and said you know congratulations. You're going to be in the movie and said <hes> oh great. Are you going to change the character's name and he said what do you mean i said am i gonna play italian american or are you going to change the character's name and he said what are you talking about as you're gonna play birdie. You're not playing at colombo. No no no i can't play. I can't play birdie birdie is he's. He's such a fragile beautiful broken person i i. That's not who i am. He goes well. You better figure it out because that's who you're playing and i i'm not kidding. I got down on my hands and knees and i begged anybody that had ever been hurt. Anybody that ever been misunderstood anybody that ever suffered from post traumatic stress to cleese come and help me to play this role this role and i'm not kidding him and it was like a rush of souls filled me up and lifted me me and guided me through through that experience of playing that role <hes> daniel day lewis is a friend <hes> is not not a close friend but but he's a friend because i'm friends with lemme sending they're both irish and and <hes> he's a lovely man but when when daniel day finishes movies i've never talked talked to him about it but i always notice he shaves his head and i think that that's a cleansing thing that he's trying to do because he goes so deep into the roles that he plays that he doesn't just come home and take a shower and wash the character off. He wants to scrape it off his body so he takes takes it down to the hair follicle and shaves it off. That's fascinating. I i've noticed that like throughout my life when there's like a big change i'll i'll just magically get a haircut. That's different which almost never do but maybe maybe there's something that i never. I was never aware of that. You said something really interesting. You talked about seoul's in there but earlier you talked about how all of the the the bad things that you know you might have done are all in your d._n._a. From your ancestors so are you a past life guy or are you a d._n._a. Or are you both well. I think our our past life is tied up in our d._n._a. When when we talk about reincarnation i think that that's that's what it is that you and i are fathers and and we've kind of reincarnated past our genetic code onto the next generation and the interesting thing about that is is our genetic code gets mixed up and stirred up. I like that jar jar those five jars around the world with our wives with with their their d._n._a. And their information and we create a different kind the human brain <hes> the important thing for us to learn in this life is <hes> that while we're passing on that genetic information mation is to do everything that we cannot repeat the mistakes that our parents made <hes> you know the the this this journey this incredible journey that we're on <hes> is an opportunity for us to improve the next generation <hes> through wisdom and and sharing information about the mistakes that we made in our lives and in preventing passing that information on and it's it's it's sometimes it's very difficult and i remember one time i. I was very tents that was you know maybe i wasn't working or i was getting ready to work at my son spilled my coffee on the on the on the dining running room table and i turned and i snapped and i saw my son look at me and i know he peed in his pants a little bit <hes> because i was looking it myself i i saw myself as a little boy and i felt words come out of my mouth that weren't made that weren't they were my father and and and i it recreated a moment from my own childhood in that moment and it was was horrible but the good thing was because maybe because i was on this journey the of trying to understand what consciousness is that. I was conscious in that moment to understand that i had made a mistake and where my father didn't embrace me and say okay. I'm sorry i embraced my son instead. I'm sorry that that it it's just coffee. It can clean it up. It's not a big deal and so <unk> an evolution of of love and evolution of forgiveness evolution of of of of positivity that we can pass onto our children in our our. Our country is in that process now. We're going through a great great trial of of what our conscious our collective consciousness is as a nation that who are we what what are we willing to accept what kind of behavior we willing to accept you know and i was reading a book the other night about free will and what is free will because i'm running for the president of the screen actors guild of my unions that i that i happen to be a member of and they they talked about a young boy who had grown up in mississippi pre-civil war and how that how that boy believes that he was nation building and how slavery was was a part part and parcel of building a strong nation building wealth and and building a culture her in mississippi and he he believed in in the slavery because of because of the place of his birth and then it talked about a young boy who was impoverished growing up in germany nineteen thirty nine and how hitler had its gave him hope and gave him a sense of of of of possibility by eliminating the jews that were keeping him down and preventing him from being more successful in his life that that was the problem. The solution was to exterminate those people now. Those those are extreme examples for what i'm talking about when i when i talk about running a union <hes> but it's important it's important conversation because what would i was asking myself. In reading about free will was the the changes that i want to make to the union. The changes that i think are necessary. M going to be on the right side of history. Am i doing what's good for the membership because when i listened to the the opposition the people i'm running against <hes> they have have arguments. That are quite different than mine so you have to ask yourself well it. Are they right or am i wrong you know and they're those extreme examples opposes that boy growing up in mississippi or the young boy growing up in germany <hes> they thought they were on the right side of history so we have to ask ourselves as individuals today in america which side of the of this <hes> of the problems that we're facing culturally and racially and the animosity antagonist that exists inside of our country. Which side of history do we want to be on. Which side are we going to take a stand and say enough is enough that that i'm not going to allow the environment to become degraded. I'm not going to allow individuals and people to be degraded because of the color of their skin or their their sex. I'm going to take a stand against sexual harassment and abuse of power or or or not so obviously i'm in <hes> six four white dude. You might have noticed so i when the metoo movement i took off. I sir looking at you like oh. My god like there's a whole lot of serious assholes out there but i don't have privy to see that right because because well known sexually harassing me like that and these aren't behaviors that i've witnessed right so some someone does something <hes> <hes> you know in a courtroom or whatever it's not going to be in the world that i see right so it was. I'm walking going. I can't believe anyone would ever do something like that. I i didn't know people did that sort of stuff like hundreds of stories out there <hes> but then i've also talked with people in hollywood saying oh yeah we all kind of knew that person in had this kind of a behavior pattern and things like that how visible is the sexual harassment problem in hollywood. I mean it's something that everyone's kind of known because you're all in trailers together in your electing for twelve hours a day or is it also visible because i was shocked. It's it's sadly sexual. Sexual harassment in hollywood is rampant and it's it's been that way since i i entered it to it and certainly for decades <unk> beforehand kind of part and parcel i mean when i started in business they still they'd say bring the action and and get the tits in s. That's that's how they spoke about women. They would say you know. Get the tits and acid here. I i would be on a on a film set in the director would <hes> after a takes a you know come over said it was great matthew gimme gimme a note know what something to change and then turned to the girl and say you look good and and and it was inappropriate <unk> again i was conscious. How how long ago was that <unk> acting now for forty years so yeah and is it still like that. Is it at all better. We evolved a little bit. It has a i. I'm gonna tell you a story now not because it's about me but because it because i'm going to give you an example so it's a comedy and the director insisted that he wanted to see my ass because it said in the script that you saw my ass and i told him i said look now. Nobody wants to see my old ask. If you really want to see a a guys but you know you get higher double. Give give give give somebody a job who doesn't mind right showing their ass in and see their but and he he he really insisted on it because it said in the script so so then began negotiation she ation it wasn't going to be full but it was going to be side but up and in the screen actors guild. There's there's a thing called a nudity clause a new any rider and you have to sign the writer before a nude scene can be filmed today. I was having sex with with a with a woman a taking her out. The details are not important but i i'm taking her from behind and she's up on all fours and my wife comes into the room and <hes> i won't spoil it in his comedy career comedy ensues as she catches me cheating on this woman now so in the nudity writer it said that all of the monitors would be turned off that there would be a sense of privacy that existed on the set that non not not all non-essential people would be removed from the set and is you know to offer you some privacy and i got a exhausted from the conversation about side but or back but old but and i just said to hell with it and i signed it now i'm naked on the set with my penis in a sauk with with a rubber band wrapped around it that that was that was my privacy was cover your genitals and <hes> you you kind of go into a place where you i think <hes> it's quite common when you're in in something that's uncomfortable or painful you disappear the cost like disassociate yeah like a car accident. 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. He's outside and he's got a monitor and he he pulls the focus. Remotely the the soundmen has the monitor so he can adjust the levels on the sound so he's got a monitor now. They wouldn't have been able to do their jobs without those monitors on and you have the crew sitting around those people with the monitor's watching things and that was supposed to happen. We're supposed to be any cell phones in these people could have taken pictures of what was what was transpiring but i'm on the set and there's nobody advocating for my my protections that exist inside of that nudity writer right so the nudity writer was a joke because none of the provisions were taken care of now. I don't don't say that because <hes> because it's me i'm not gonna go complain <unk> director or or the experience although it sounds like i am right now oh i say it because what's important is for that eighteen year old actress. That's on the film set who signs the nudity writer and none of these provisions are taking taken can karaoke on her behalf or or a young. A young boy who is is a sexually harassed molested by film director producer that it's on the set and it happens all the time okay it. You're saying you're a powerful hollywood guy in your experiences. This and you're saying if you're just getting started did your vulnerable and you're young. You don't have the benefit of forty years of wisdom. This is going to be a serious trauma even though it's part of the job that's exactly what i'm saying is after forty years in the business. I'm still worried that if i make a if i'm difficult on the set and start demanding that the provisions in the nudity writer are held you you know are taking care of that. I might be considered. Somebody who's difficult to work with and may find it difficult to find myself a job in the future. How sad is that right so i i see that as a systematic problem it kinda reminds me of a situation around. The first book i wrote called. The better baby book is around birth and the problem. Is you create. This will like a like a writer nudity writer except it's here's my birth plan. You're saying i want this. I don't want on this and then the doctors nurses rush in and they do whatever the heck they're going to do unless you have someone standing there going up you promised right so you're not allowed to do this because if you're giving birth or frankly if you're the the dad in the room you know helping you're not in the mindset to be. You must follow the rules because you're doing the work and yes in. They're acting. You're doing the work. You're putting yourself in the frame of the person whatever you do to emotes properly <hes> so how could you do that and stop the scene and say you turn off your phone or whatever so you got to have someone there watching them for you and that's burned the contract. No and that's what we're advocating now. In with my presidency league is what we call the intimacy coordinator and it was one of the harvey weinstein's <hes>. <hes> survivors told me she said you know when we're on a on a film dome said there's going to be a fight. There's a stunt coordinator there to make sure that you don't punch the other actor in the face you wanna make it appear that it looked like you punch. The person in the face faced that you were choking somebody but you're not actually choking them. You make it appear that you're choking them. So why is it that when i'm on set and i'm doing a love scene that the guy i feel that it's okay for him to put his fingers inside of me or if he's mounting the to put his penis inside of me that they're just like. There's as a stunt coordinator. That's on the set to provide safety for the members so they don't get hurt. There should be a coordinator. There didn't make sure during sex scenes things that people are behaving appropriately and that there's somebody advocating for your safety so you don't get hurt. Wow i never thought about that that out because i am calling from at industry do you think though it if you succeed in that and you put your your ten or twenty year here in the future hat on is that going to change the nature of our media or maybe it's a little bit less misogynist. I i mean apparently the if the last forty years have been his bad as you've been talking about in terms of bringing your tits and acid on the show and that level of things it has to be reflected in our culture because a lot of our culture is shaped by hollywood so now. Do you think we'll see a cultural shift if you succeed in this. It's interesting also to see the way the industry devolved because the bette davis or you know rosalind russell <hes> i there's meryl streep. There's any number of really powerful women it. It would never take a the this kind of behavior never allowed this kind of behavior to be acceptable on film said that they were warriors <hes> and somehow we we devolved into the situation that we are in today and i don't. I don't think it's just a producers. I think think there were a great many people that were involved in in responsible for it. You know that the agents or managers that <hes> you know if harvey weinstein came out in bathrobe with his penis hanging out that and they call the inside like i'm in a hotel room and he he did that and they probably said well. That's just harvey being harvey. You know you want the job. Don't you and that that that there. It's much bigger than than just <hes> harvey weinstein there had to be people that were involved in it were conscious of the things that were going on and allowed the behavior to become acceptable and <hes> so what what we don't want to do. We want to celebrate everybody's culture. That's different. You know the in in the in the in the sexuality of people to to be who <unk> when i'm trying to say is what we don't want to do is try to <hes> just put women into roles that would would have been played by a man dan because women's journey in life is quite different than a man. You don't want to just hang a pair of testicles on a woman and say okay now. You're you're the bad guy and you're the tough guy in your solving problems. Women are so much bigger so much more important than a hanging genitalia men's genitalia kayla on them that their journey in life is bigger and that their connection to the universe is is so much different than a mess that the fact that they have the monthly cycle with the menstrual cycle inside of their body makes them different than us in their journey different types their understanding of time becomes different because of that cycle <hes> <hes> their ability to carry life inside of their body their ability to nurture life with their breasts it all of those things are incredibly beautiful sacred things things and and they're they're they're they're so much more than than men in that sense and so would i would a hope that the screen writers and film directors don't do is bring women down to men's level but to celebrate all of power that women have. I hope we see definitely an acknowledgement of the difference there because there is a masculine energy and there's feminine energy every single shamanic tradition every single traditional chinese medicine i r vata their energies and you know i would imagine because you're an actor you can channel. You're more feminine side when you need to offer a role and you can channel and more masculine. I'm gonna go kick your ass side of things right and that that they exist within both of us and i i definitely see some movies now where they're doing exactly what you're talking about with set of balls on a woman but it does feel like it's <hes> it's probably cheapening being what could have been a a deeper story right because you can't and tough without having to become masculine so maybe changing the the intimacy dynamic in hollywood would would would change the nature's way people show up on film in a way that that could be beneficial ever on time. I'm intrigued. That's a long term investment in making society better but very cool. You're you're coming up on forty years of experience as an actor and there's been a lot of stuff especially more on maybe the t._v. Side a news where women are saying look guys can become distinguished as they age and then they take the women newscasters and they basically boom off the air and there's you're saying it doesn't matter how good of a report you know you. You don't look like you did twenty years ago so so you're out in clearly. The same thing happens in hollywood <hes>. Do you see that changing. I mean are we going to be honoring. More of our wise is women as they age or do. You think that that's sort of built into the system. I hope so <hes> that ageism is is is something that is prevalent in in our industry. It's one of the things that i will try to change. If i become president of the union is i. I would go to jeff pezzo since they look he owns i._m._d._b. Internet movie database and his girlfriend is a is an actress and and i would ask him to cleese. He's remove people's ages from the even though you can find out somebody's age pupils searching <hes> it. It's not beneficial to the actresses actresses particularly the actresses a a woman can look twenty five years old and be thirty five years old but if it posts third age on on the web on that website the may it may <hes> prejudice a casting director director from looking at that person and and it should be it should be removed that makes so much sense when my friends is a is a supermodel and she's eight years older than she tells everyone so i don't. I don't want people to know ap's but like you said you know you look you. Can't you can't tell and i think increasingly that's that's happening and that's that's also partly my my next book is called superhuman. It's the what i'm gonna did you to live to at least one hundred and eighty and part of that is cosmetic and clearly you don't wanna you don't want to live one hundred eighty and <hes> look like one hundred eighty anyone anyone who's aging would tell you. I'd rather look and feel like i did when i was thirty then when i'm eighty you know i'll take my life. I'm pretty happy to be alive right. How how do you aging like do you. You think you're going to live a long time. What's your what's your perspective on that will <hes> none of us are going to live forever but we are living longer <hes>. It's one of the reasons that i go to upgrade labs. Is that it it's <hes> it's because if i'm going to live longer what can i do to keep this organism that i live in strong and healthy and how how do i keep a from having to have hip surgery when when when when the when the joints start to wear out what what can i do. That's preventative <hes> to allow me to live the most optimal almost positive productive life that that i can for the period of time that i'm here but i i got lyme disease ah yes almost twenty years ago and and <hes> what i learned from from that was that that <hes> the acceptance it's of death. <hes> you know we talk about being present and being in the moment. This is a so many of the meditations about in our life. The religious practices the being president. It's certainly a big part of what it is to be. An actor is to be in the moment to be present to listen to the person that you're talking to and respond than then. You don't sound like you're reciting lines. If you're if you're you know that that being present and but when i accepted the inevitability of my death is when i began to live more fully <hes> that you know as i said with marcus aurelius that that <hes> that there is a spring time in the summer and fall in our lives and <hes> that that cycle <hes> is is you you know something that exists for everything. That's living on this planet. <hes> and i really started to enjoy like i once. I accepted the stability. <hes> do i want to. I don't want to die prematurely. I wanna do everything i can to to keep this organism awesome strong and healthy in my mind sharp <hes> that's part of the journey that's part of. I get great enjoyment from it. I get enjoyment from learning <hes> the the things from the those kids is wonderful kids that you have working it upgrade labs that are so knowledgeable about the machinery that they <hes> that that they use and get so excited you know telling you about what the pulse electromagnetic field does to the cells inside of the body that that what the the big squeeze squeeze your adrenals and gets the poisons out of your body that the the cold the cold hit that the machine that <hes> as we age we start to lose to saas thrown. I don't wanna take artificial testosterone. I don't want to do that so if i can get a a boost my own body my own brain into producing its own testosterone. <unk> widow would a wonderful thing to be able to do so <hes> <hes> those those are the benefits that that <hes> i. It's why i enjoy walking from my house. It's about a two mile walk and which gives me an opportunity to sort of meditate on that journey until i get to the labs and and do those do those machines to upgrade my life my body and and <unk> an i always come out of that place a i feel. I don't say that because it's it's your place i feel a little bit wiser a little bit healthier little bit sharper and <hes> this journey of running for president of the union <hes>. I'm not a politician. I don't have any ambition to become a politician. I'm i'm an artist and i say that without apology <hes> it it's very upsetting and that was one morning i was walking over to the labs and i couldn't take a deep breath. I you know i try to do this. Seven four seven breathing in breathing in for seven holding <unk> for exhaling for seven holding before four and i couldn't take a breath that was more than three seconds deep. I just couldn't expand my abdomen and when i got to the labs and i and i put that <unk> machine lean on my my stomach it <hes> it it comes it calms my system and in a in a loud and then i went on the red charge. The light in the end was rejuvenated. I in in in a way i felt like it saved my life that day because i was so so troubled by eh the animosity that exists within this process of running a president of the union while you're you're really living the <hes> the recover more <hes> mindset that they're talking about i i. I'm happy that we have upgrade labs and people people listening you. I don't talk about it that much on the show we spun upgrade labs out of bulletproof is right next to the bulletproof coffee shop and it's got all the the cool tech for biohacking that i talk about because it just so happens that this stuff is real and by the way matthew in the last couple of days. A new study came out. We have the whole body vibration. The bolt provide bat upgrade labs. <hes> a group out of china just discovered that whole-body vibration changes your gut microbiome to to make more beautyrest acid. This is the short chain fatty acid that helps with ketosis. That's really good for you. The tend to inflammatory stuff that i read about how to change it nutritionally with the bulletproof bulletproof diet which was vibrating for ten or twenty minutes changes the amount and type of bacteria that before just last last week but <hes> there's there's some cool stuff going on around that tech. I don't even think we know why half of it works pele at this point. I feel comfortable saying most of a works for most people most of the time so thank thank you for being is someone who is wanna try it. I think this is something very very interesting about vibration and it begins a with <hes> prayers. You know like we say or certain words like home. Which is <hes> has own an at home which is one of the where's the san meditation home and if you do that and you feel the vibration in your brain at. I think that what it's what it is physically doing. Inside of your brain is shaking off some <hes>. I don't know let's call it duster carbon off of as a neuron you're on that that that that share information from one side of the brain to the other we know that inflammation reduces lead flow and if there's influence inflammation in the brain the even the slightest bit and you picture those beautiful little neurons tiny little baynes inside of your brain just the slightest bit of of of the inflammation reduces the information to travel from one place to another it reduces the ability for blood to be oxygen to be carried into those different recesses recesses of the brain <hes> my wife and i experimented with reducing carbohydrates inch and sugar from our body and after three days of of being very strict richt about it it was as if i've been going through life with my fingers in my ears and i it was literally a pop that happened in my brain and a ah consciousness shift of of just being able to like oh my god i i can see more in think more clearly <hes> it was literally that dramatic by the reduction of sugar in simple carbon carbohydrates from our diet and and there was no more walking into the room going. What did i come here for. Where where did i put my keys down that that sugar fog or that brain fog whatever you wanna call it is real it is a real oh thing and and the the i don't i don't like to talk about myself my personal life so much but i think it's important to share that i was somebody he's suffered with depression and that guy that come would come around every once in a while and dragged me into a whole <hes> he he he he stopped coming coming around when i stopped eating so much sugar and simple carbohydrates and it's that guy if not eating a cupcake or having having a piece of pie or prevents that guy from coming around i'm happy to go the rest of my life not eating the birthday cake <hes> very the at very well said and and you're making me sort of laugh because yesterday i did eat a birthday cake because my son that's a tenth birthday however it was <hes> it was gluten free had some sugar but not too much because i don't need it all the time. I don't feel depressed today in. I don't think any of the kids do either but that idea that that if you do it every day man you're screwed and if you find your sensitive to the point where you do at once depression about someone's come back. Don't do it for a long time that i truly believe that if people generally do it right after a couple years of fixing your biology you'll actually have a level resilience where if you want that celebratory piece of of of cake and you know you avoid things really bad for you. Your metabolism will work again in a way. It hasn't been twenty years. That's been my experience so i certainly don't eat birthday cake more than twice a year funny. I have two kids <hes> and i make the kick myself and <hes> pretty darned free of bad stuff <hes> but i i love your perspective on that <hes> where you're saying. I'm willing to skip it forever to feel that good of consciousness. That's beautifully said now we've talked about so your perspective on aging and you however is gonna die if you had to pick a number how long you think you're gonna live giving your health given what you have at your fingertips to to influence yourself. I've been asking every guest pissed because i'm writing about living longer than you're supposed to. How long what's your number <hes> well with some of the health issues faced i would be it would be blessed to to reach ninety tiny all right i could if i could i mean i think that that that live in to be a hundred would be would <unk> so long as them cope as mentesse that have my resources of mental facilities or or sharp in that i'm able to to get around. It'd be productive. <hes> i would love to live to be two hundred twenty or not. Would you still be acting when you're ninety if you had if you had any you don't have to say that this is one of the greatest jobs in the world being an actor that that <hes> you know it has no value in it has unbelievable unmeasurable value to our culture that if you go back i was in in <hes> tariffs a city in southern turkey and have been been two amphitheaters in italy and greece but the this this amphitheater that was carved into decided mountain in turmoil sus <hes> brought me it completely humbled me and brought me to tears <hes> because they're they're sitting at the on the top of the amphitheater. I was looking out and i knew to the greeks. I was looking at air. The sun on was setting so you had fire and the see was there which was water so those three elements were really important to the culture of of the greeks you know in mythology and sitting in this amphitheater that that must've been made tremendous expense to to those the people that lived in that in that small small city of turmoil and they went to that expense to build a place where people could sing songs and tell stories <hes> because it is through the singing singing of songs in the telling of stories that we evolve a culturally that we learned to understand other people's points of view that we see what racism looks like we see what what being unfair in mean into other people are. We learn to laugh at our at our foolishness. <hes> we learned songs we can share in and saying when we're alone and and bring joy to our hearts. That's the this this this thing that i'm a part of this culture i stand on the shoulders of thousands of people who came before me and and it it's such a blessing to be a part of this tradition of storytelling. It's an amazing job and i'm so happy to to <hes> to to have been successful in this profession sounds like a hell. Yes yeah hell yes on matthew it. It's it's been a great pleasure in view. Thanks for being on the show and thanks for coming up gate labs. I'm happy that it's it's working for you you and <hes> and you had no reason to be public about other than just your nice guy and so thanks thanks for sharing that and <hes> thanks for doing the work. You're doing on the screen actors guild because i i think if we if you can have a more balanced and nuanced view of masculine feminine in our culture to get <hes> it might be good. Everybody absolutely that's a hell. Yes how beautiful day thank you very much. You've probably noticed that in mentioned a lot of new biohacking an aging technologies on the show and they love it that i get to see and ensure almost every new thing that comes out and some of the companies that i talked about it really upgraded my life and i walk the talk by parting with investing in some of the companies that i really love bulletproof radio was created and hosted by dave asprey the executive producer is selena pica cheer and the podcast assistant is bev hamson research is provided by darcy himes times and all technical aspects are handled by podcast mastermind brock armstrong.

There's that and so much talk about with that was one of my favorite. Kubrick movies. Yeah, no doubt. What's your favorite couvert moving well. I would say that's probably the only one I've ever seen to be on the shining. Full Metal Jacket. Have you never seen the shining now? I don't like scary movies Oh my gosh it's more of a psychological thriller again I mean you never thought you'd never seen two thousand, one space odyssey you've never seen clockwork orange no. You know what? I don't know how to take this. I know you're from different age and a different era that was the fact that then you turn around. Never. Seen Jurassic Park. It's just like come on like. Things that. Hear from you ever again about my blind spots in terms of. Just as big as mine dude I just named you some of the most conic movies. Of. You know of to you and I choose this word to understand it's not just to me. It's the most iconic. Movies in the history. Of Cinema Holland. In the history of film. Great Okay fact you're talking about movies I'm talking about cinema. I'm talking about do we have to go down this road again like? Nothing from the forties in the fifties I understand these movies were in the seventies but yeah but they don't age well, Bro. So it's like okay I'm not interested clockwork orange. Two thousand one space odyssey. If I'M NOT MISTAKEN DOESN'T SARAH? Have two, thousand, one space? No, she has this. In your. She has these things that are like pictures of all the villains and heroes right so there's like, Twenty Twenty Five Jersey how the computer it's on there I don't know what it is i. mean you need to honestly don't need do I've lived my whole life I don't worry. Park forty great years not seeing these movies shiny and I've done. Great Jack. Nicholson. In Your. Right you have to at least watch the shining variety least watch that one because it the red rum thing. You don't get the here's Johnny reference. They have like all kinds of nightmares as it is I don't need to see these movies to like freak me out. I gotTa tell. You I'm I'm fine this. Now this doesn't build my case about of made a different eras and. Nature that it doesn't matter but. I remember being home alone. Now I wasn't left by my parents like Kevin, but I remember being home alone. All right. In my parents room. Watching shining. Because we didn't have TV's all over the house as a kid, right? All right. And I was in my folks room watching the shining. And I. I did in fact. Make sure I must have been maybe I could have been a teenager or something like that. I remember I I made sure the windows were locked halfway through. And I did. As I'm sitting there jump out of my skin. When my parents VCR went off to record something on another channel set on a timer. And I heard that click click go and I jumped out of my skin. The shining you Appealing Dude I'm not a horror movie guy at all. With. Chris. This is art. Do this is Kubrick's Stanley Kubrick. Eyes Wide. Shut though. I may not all the way I mean that's not the first one I would say, Hey, you gotta start. You'RE GONNA I mean there's even another film called Barry Lyndon there's so many Kubrick movies you need to sing. He is truly there's nobody makes movies like him nobody ever made a movie like him. And the fact that he then turned his attention to the Vietnam. War was significant. and. Again, we'll talk about it with Matthew Modine in a second to your news update in less than that but there is You know it's half the first half of the movies and basic training and the other half of the film is in. The battlefield. and. A lot of people you included thought that it became less than when it went to the battlefield because of how intense it was in the basic training that. And part of it also was coming out in eighty seven was platoon come out. Wasn't platoon just like two years before or something like that or right around then was about a year before before and it was like, okay. How can we get? More Harrowing. Real. Depiction. Of. The Vietnam War when we've already gotten apocalypse now and the deer hunter and then platoon. And now here comes Kubrick's take on it. That's a hell of a movie. But you've got some you've got some serious cinema catching up to. Now. I don't. Sarah thinks about a movie like that was amityville horror. Yeah isn't a Kubrick movie but I watch that and I was because I didn't WanNa, see it either because I'm from New York and I knew that Amityville New York existed and apparently this is based on something true and I'm like no way. No thank you. You know I've never sleep in the room that had a rocking chair, the night I watched. Rocketeer. I also you to I've I've never seen beginning end nightmare on ELM. Street. I never seen that. Yeah not as an adult. Just, I'm not into it but the Shani's a different story we just grow. Grow watching different movies got men cruthers man. Yes. Spoiler I don't WanNa. Go any further Danny. Eight four four zero four rich is the number to dial Let's get to Chris Brockman is news update right here as Matthew Modine about to join us here on the program and then Michael Fabiano will join us top of hour number three to talk about all the injuries that that Chris is about to hit us on right now, it's a heated Chris. With a report of the day's news from the world of sports entertainment someone who is not a journalist or news man by any definition of the word whatsoever which Chris Brockman go for Chris okay. So remember last week, Troy Vincent came out from the League and said Stern morning for all these coaches now are in their masks properly. Well, he has delivered three head coaches according to Adam Schefter Vic Fangio Caroline Kyle Shanahan off find a one, hundred, thousand dollars each for not wearing masks on Sunday. Each Other teams find another two hundred and fifty thousand dollars that's over a million dollars in fines for these teams and coaches for not wearing their masks the proper way Gruden. On the Broadcast Clears Day really wearing his a lot. During the game as well. So expect something for him talked about it. Here's what he had to say about it. My best you know I've had the virus. Okay. I'm doing my best I'm very sensitive about it but I'm calling place. I just WanNa communicate in these situations and apologized, and if I get fine I I will have to pay the fine but. I'm very sensitive about all of that and I apologize and that was some news right there that Gruden had the virus. The conversations going to be had right now is that you know wires the NFL soest stringent upon it about it if nobody's testing positive. As. We mentioned between September thirteenth and the nineteenth no-one tested positive and that's the first time that that vectors crossed and the reason why is because you never know? You never know. If somebody picked it up on the way in you have no idea and some of these coaches that are on the sidelines are of a certain age. And the NFL I mean, it's just they're not going to risk it this. Let your guard down h-have. Been Zero positive tests after all that. So yeah just let them. It's don't don't wear masks, but it's tough for coaches. I. Totally. Understand and you're already beginning to hear that. You know when you're talking through a mask, it's muffled to deliver the play call and they're talking to a guy through the his head right? It's it's helmet. It Ain't easy. So we'll actually NFL's not playing. Yeah. I expect more of these any the right idea with the show. That that's probably the reason why he's doing that. Ruin, laughed at him but. We got the Anti fogging showed you right to Okay, let's talk about Anthony Win a little bit more rich did come out that tyrod Taylor is going to be the starter. Okay. He did not play because of an adverse reaction to a an injection. He got in his chest of a painkiller and he elaborate on why sticking with tyrod and not just in. Herbert Don't get me wrong. I thought I would just in deal was I thought he came in and gave us a chance out but was a lot that you don't know there's a lot. That, we didn't get down with Justin known a field yesterday. He's a backup for a reason. You know he's a rookie and there's a lot that he the learn about this game. Wow. I mean. I get. Okay. No I I read it on twitter. That's the first that I'm hearing it from his mouth and. Had the chiefs. All right. I it. It. It comes across as. Harsh. Certainly in when you see it in print on your twitter feed and you know he did put the caveat of you know he did a lot of good things. The kid found out like how many times have we seen somebody? Grafted in the top ten, get a start earlier than expected. We've seen it. It's happened right Or injected into a game before. We, expected it. Does Shawn. Watson not drafted top ten but member eating get snaps in the preseason. It's Tom Savage's job, and then halftime first game off you go. Your first start is now going to be in three days on the road on Thursday night football short week when all of your tight ends are out. Protocol and your offensive Lineman is going to be less than because they're your tight ends. Mean just a couple of examples just off the top of my head I don't recall in my eighteen years of doing this. Opportunity comes. Literally after the Coin Toss last-second because your quarterback who's been announced his starting. You know had an adverse reaction to a shot. He received just before the game and suddenly you're telling your. Six overall drafted quarterback wick to guess what you're starting. And you're starting against the defending Super Bowl Champs and you're going to probably have to go point for point against. Patrick. Mahomes. And Kid almost pulls it off and part of the reason why he doesn't pull it off. Yes he throws an interception. On the plus side of the field in the third quarter that the defending super bowl MVP turns into six points because he uncork a fifty five yard or on the run retiree kill and then converts the two point. Conversion. With some peripheral vision that I didn't know really existed in the human body. Yeah. and. He and his first driveway before that leads let me get this right an eight play seventy, nine yard touchdown drive that he caps off with a run. Three hundred eleven yards and a touchdown pass also, and you say. There's a lot you know. I. Know that he loves tyrod Taylor he was around him in Buffalo. Toronto took the bills to the playoffs. The year that Lynn left to beat the chargers head coach and he loves him so much. I'll just give my to unsolicited sense here. And the Toronto. Taylor. May His belief interrupt Taylor may eventually. Win. The day for him. Okay may eventually win the date for him. And his belief in him I hope for Anthony Lynn Sake will pay off four Anthony Lynn. But the writings on the wall. When you draft somebody six overall or your general manager draft somebody six overall. Writings on the wall for tyrod Taylor and for whoever Believes in him so much that you're going to say about this kid after that performance, he's a backup for a reason. which by the way was a phrase that you heard a lot about tyrod Taylor in Buffalo and Cleveland in a lot of other stops. But we've seen guys get a shot later in your career and it works out and it's great and I hope that happens for Taylor who's going back in for the chargers but this is an organization that could have cam. Could you match camps in that stadium? And the twenty fifteen cam but showing up in New England shows up here in Los Angeles. In that stadium. And suddenly, if there were fans, people would want to come and see that team or talk about him in this town. And in Herbert's performance. was. A. Ratings hit in Los Angeles which I don't think I've ever said about the chargers. No definitely that. It keeps you say I know he really wants to defend tyrod Taylor and I'm sure he saw things on film that we're not talking about and I know he wants to shut down talk. In. The media about this kid herbert because he wants Taylor to be his guy. Toronto Taylor better win like the next five out of six games. because. If he doesn't and you're not like say. Five and one six in one or seven and two with the chiefs doing what they're doing the raiders looking like what they look like. By the way I'm. Seeding the ground for a an AFC west higher register on Friday. At Tampa at New Orleans for the jets. Let's say to is out there waiting around week seven and beats your chargers while you're tyrod tailoring with your. Kid that you took after two nailed to the bench because your coach believes Taylor. I'm I'd be if I was if I was Anthony Lynn. You can still have belief in Toronto Taylor and continue to start him without sounding so damn angry or. Making rightfully I think people in the media think did you not want US kid? I think what Herbert did on Sunday was so impressive. Starting. So he think about it. He didn't have any prep time as the starting quarterback five minutes before the game. Hey, you're starting. Chiefs, and Patrick Mahomes goes out and throws for three hundred yards ran for a score also, and nearly had this team beat and Anthony Lynn would a went for it on fourth down and overtime. Could have won the game I know he was also in the middle of his own like. Middle of his own territory when he didn't go for it on fourth and one, it wasn't like he was in no-man's-land on the plus side of the field and he knew. You know clearly but in that interest sought had three consecutive fifty yards in his leg you know to like. Roll the game or blame him VP Super Bowl win it. I know you're you could. That's a twenty twenty hindsight I think or shore but the issue I was the play calling when you're inside the five yard line handed to Kelly, hand it to Kelly and then. Put it in the hands of your rookie quarterback on third and goal from the four right and that calling was a little bit odd and at least your quarterback who's playing in his first game took the sack. He didn't throw a pick and do something. Stupid. So you could kick the field goal and go up. To basically say he's a quarter he's a backup for a reason. Game really some bad winnable with a guy. See how it plays out. We'll see how it plays out but when your general manager chooses somebody that high up and the draft and he's pressed into service against the defending Super Bowl Champs and acquits himself to the test that will doesn't matter what the all twenty says. You could say rod still the Guy Without coming across. As as you sound about your backup. Ninety Percents Matthew Modine when we come back the actor's GonNa, talk full. Metal Jacket.

Shefrin will be joining us on our program Michael Fabiano before her talk about fantasy football and man do I love this film available now today four, k ultra hd and Blu Ray as well as digital. 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. What is on the Matthew Modine Mug what is on the monk here could put on my desk. What I don't actually have a matthew. Call you out I mean. Okay. Because, I want to be on that that. Cup Shelf. Okay. 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 Kubrick come on. We got it. Did you ever want to say that at some point? Never. Early on. Early on, he invited my wife and I do house many times for dinner and yes and he said you know, isn't it? Funny? How people say how many takes do I take? You know like what difference does it make? How many takes I I? Do you know he said would you ever go to Pablo Picasso and say Hey Pablo I really love that painting how many strokes or would you say we just say to Beethoven how many notes in that Symphony Ludwig and you know it When you're in the process of creating something I mean, maybe that's why we're talking about the movie thirty three years after the fact is that that what it was I didn't this allusive thing that he was looking for in order to be able to move on and say good cut we got. Let's move on. that. Elusive thing I don't know what it was. I. I can't tell you why we did that many takes but I know that I've done. I guess almost two hundred projects now and This is what I'm talking about thirty three years after the fact. Well it's because my social media grand macy's he likes to call TJ Jefferson as an ass you his quest question yet Matthew. He wants to talk about vision quest with you. But but for the moment I know I still have control of the. You know so I do have just a couple of questions left with you about this. We'll turn a little bit to sports with Matthew Modine here on the rich Eisen show. So arly army was a real drill sergeant was he originally slated like this was his Gig from the get go or did he he? He was kind of on the show as of show the film consult as a consultant and he just grew into the role how how did that happen with him? Yes. So it was another actor was playing the part Tim called Cherry and took Tim, is the guy who's in the helicopter? Women and children you know when I say the. Screaming Children, right? Yeah. Yeah. Get some right So that was tim culture. He was hired for the role in and we shot Vietnam and then boot camp we shot the movie back to front. And Lee Was Technical Advisor on the movie advising. Vietnam trend and he was he you know teaching make sure that people were using their rifles correctly and You know strategic moving a movement how a a platoon of soldiers would come into that square. You know to move appropriately and you know. So he was technical advisor and there were a lot of recruits because as we were finishing up Vietnam and getting ready to start The bootcamp sequence of the film, all of those other. Actors that are in the background of of the scenes had to be hand picked and chosen. So they would they were come in to audition and. Lee would audition them when Stanley looked at the videotape with Li Army you know same thing you're the Kinda guy that sucker you know you know the Correct. That's correct. Yeah. You know you could suck off ball through a garden hose. It say that one lesson did So all of that colorful stuff that Lee said, you know Stanley started looking at the video tapes and going you know my God this guy is the real deal that. He doesn't have to act. He just has to react to what's happening in the movie and so. Lee became our drill instructor and and Tim Cherry. Bless. Him You know it's terrific. Actor was was fired and then Stanley felt bad in and said, hey, how about I bring you back? Can you play the door gunner which is? You know you still gets to participate in this film, but you know. It was devastating for ten that he had buried devastating. I Bet I bet. But I, mean you know Li Army was nominated for Golden Globe I. Don't know how he didn't get a nomination for an Oscar in he. He was that good that believable and that see those scenes was at the best shape you ever were in in your. Life Imagine Matthew No. Vision Vision Quest No kidding. Yeah. Vision. Quest is I mean I had to go. Five weeks before we began. So me 'cause I didn't know how to wrestle I went out to wrestling the wrestling team my sophomore year in high school and I you gotta be crazy to do this sport is that was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. And what you realize when anybody who's participated that I probably boxing? Is that your your who your wrestling against is yourself you how much are you willing to endure? How much pain are you willing to endure? How how you know how much can you learn to be able to you know to outsmart your opponent, but it's it's it's a, it's really a A. An extraordinary sport because you probably MMA is the same thing that you just learned so much about who you are and what you're able to endure and So I went. Yeah. About five weeks before and we wrestled once a day then I wait trained and then and then running and lifting weights. Look what the guy the guy I was wrestling probably in real life. Wait about thirty pounds more than me I mean he was that guy was a beast and so I was always the whole movie where I'm supposed to be losing weight. I was actually trying to put weight on put on, put on muscle way I'd. Never thought in a million years that you'd be in better shape vision quest than than the bootcamp scenes and full metal jacket. But there you go. Matthew Modine here and in terms of boot camp and you mentioned just words like how much pain are you willing to endure? That those are questions I asked myself. Dolan. Ask Your Smart Man. You're smart man. It's it's it's it's definitely questions. I asked myself as a a knick fan growing up in born in Brooklyn raised in Staten Island Matthew. How much are you willing to Endure Matthew? How much pain isn't it? Isn't it weird because there's been so many moves that you thought. Well, this is good. We got Carmelo. We got started Meyer we got Larry Johnson I mean what does Jackson Jackson Phil Jackson? On the team. Yeah. We. We we made so many good moves that went so wrong. You know. What happened I mean? I it it is. It is baffling that that that You know. It's like stand with somebody who keeps putting quarters in the slot machine and never never win. Save interesting. Yes. The Knicks are a one armed bandit basically is what you're saying is there any? Is there any part of you? Any part of you? That thinks Brooklyn Nets aren't a bad team root for. The durant and Cairo. No I can't. I can't. I can't do it. Kharian durant Steve Nash is a coach I. Mean a beautiful facility in Brooklyn. You can get to it easily matthew now that's not even thinking of that Ha-. Know that. You know it's Like you know the Boston fans they had to suffer for somebody is worse the Chicago found. That you know with the goat that. It it just makes it that much sweeter there was. I was listening sports radio. Yesterday we're talking about dirt Dirk Nowitzki that he could have gone to so many teams and want to wring so much earlier but. The fact that he suffered through those those those years where they almost almost almost we're always there and then to finally win it it makes it that much sweeter. So you know sticking with the Knicks and and and hoping. It'll just make it that much better when they when they do. It's like being mets. It's like being a mets fan right now. So. Basically, what you're saying if I'm not, mistaken. The Knicks are your team. There's no one else like it, and that one is yours. Essentially, you sound you sound like you're talking about your rifle and full metal jacket and you won't give it up. Right. Might there many like this one is mine. That's it. Yeah. Yeah. That's right and then used another phrase like you're looking around. You know, why would you make this move? None of you dumb asses knows it basically sets another sort of line from full metal jacket trying to figure out what's going on with the Knicks but you're still sticking with them. God. Bless Ya. All those years we suffered with Michael. Jordan. I love him I. I appreciate how I soon came to the when he came to the garden I wanted to do was beat him I. You know what was I assume you saw the last dance that was for me as a Knick Fan reliving the Charles Smith moment reliving the Jordan comes back and he's struggling and he gets the garden and he you know he and Bill Wennington combined for fifty seven points you know. and. All my it was tough. It was tough to sit through that because the Knicks had those were the teams matthew that was it. Yeah that was it. That was it. And we got the PAT. Reilly. Years. And now he's now he's got the heat two games from the finals again without Lebron maybe the face. Lebron. This could be it. Man Well Look I, appreciate you calling in and a commiserating with me best you can. And this year you're not gonNA you're not GonNa go to the Brooklyn Nets I'm done with a matthew I don't want to go in this direction because I don't WanNa get any trouble if you want to go to the games the minute. Oakley. got dragged out of the garden finished I, was finished. How. Can he sit there and watch Oakley dragged out of the garden sit there and not stop it. How can you let him sit there and night injia? Honestly I was done. I was done. It's just so difficult but I grew up in. Staten Island. Bernard. King was my guy. And and then when Bernard hurt his knee in the Knicks Scott Ewing, because of it I thought here comes here comes the Bernard and Patrick and it just never materialized and but that's my that was my team that was my team. I hate talk about. Are you a Yankee Fan tour or you're not? Yes Yankees. Yeah Okay They went on a on a good streak they got they ten wins, and now what is it two or three losses in a row now they they just lost last night to Toronto and I think it's two in a row. They finally lost to the Red Sox this year, which is something haven't brought up to my Boston friend across the aisle from here in our show studio even hasn't count. Doesn't count. But no, I'm I'm looking forward to the playoffs for sure. And Hey man look I. Guess I don't know what to say congratulations to somebody who's WHO's film is out again. But that I, I will definitely get the IPAD APP you mentally that you're talking about I can't wait to see all of it. I can't wait to hear all your stories and let's let's keep talking.

There's also another movie I didn't even mention Dr Strangelove from nineteen sixty four. Dude laugh. All you want. It's. Totally, was Ari something sixty years old. I'm just not interested in twenty twenty right but you should being what else I'm telling you these are films that that you would enjoy a doubt. Why 'cause they're old? Yeah, it's just I'm just not into it. I'm not into something where I want to be entertained I want stuff that's going to I want. something. Went up I wanNA laugh Dr Strangelove something does blow up. And people have seen it know exactly what I'm talking about. Spoiler alert. Dude. It's fine. I'M NOT GONNA be able to. George C Scott but it's okay it's okay. You don't have to get mad that I'm not into these movies just like I'm not going to get mad at you don't lie I, will ask. and. Stuff like it's fine. We can coexist. Peacock at the. Twelve to three eastern Joe Scarborough was talking about how he's getting got peacock too watches. Premier League Action Oh. Yeah. They got any. Got, sucked in I don't know if that means he watched the rich Eisen. Show. I don't prefer to be you know having the word sucked. In, the same sentence. Because, sometimes, people not not might not hear the word in. Right right right. Caught in the world. So a on our peacock segment because we come back earlier before commercial break I, just said another another I mean. Some amazing films. Spartacus Lolita. Again, I know that's nineteen sixty and nine, hundred, sixty two and then Dr Strangelove Nineteen, sixty four and you're like forget it. Forget it, and you're. Not Interested and I said why? Because you see? Old and your you said that basically, yes, you don't want to be an. Old can be entertaining in two thousand twelve. So just don't think something's a movies specifically music is different but a movie sixty, seventy years old, it just doesn't hold up. You're so wrong. Loud. Disagrees kid just tell me I'm wrong. That's my opinion. No, no no your opinions are right or wrong. I guess. You could say that but you'd be wrong. You know I mean. Just. Hear me out here me. Could you imagine if we did the same thing for sports? You're not entertained by Tom Brady because he's old. You're not entertained by breeze because he's old no I'm not. I'm not entertained with watching their old now. No. It'd be like watching sixty year old football game. Like people who say, well, what do they say is the greatest game ever like packers whoever? Get outta here like. The Sunday seahawks patriots game is better than the. Game. Recent because you'd also don't know the result I mean come on. I guess we can't compare in a way. You know watching old game because you know you're not edgier. See You know the movie? have. You ever seen the Manchurian candidate I've seen the remake. Do me this favor. It's a favor. It's a favor to me. Do me this favor. When you think cage is going to have a nap of about hour and a half to two hours or so. Okay. All Right Sarah's around and use their watch the Manchurian candidate. From the sixties. and You tell me if that movie doesn't hold up. All Right I'll tell you tell me that the movie doesn't still have resonance. Today. You tell me. I will. We will review. Okay Watch that movie and tell me it's not like. Wow, they did that in the sixties. Wow. That actually still is relevant today is but are you going to do the same with Jurassic Park. But. What's the? What do you mean? Though, because the difference because I'm making a point that something old still has resonance still could be entertaining today as it was the first minute came out. You're. Giving me homework to do just because now. So give me the. Jurassic Park is old and you could say that technology in that movie doesn't hold up. To watch it or don't, you want to watch because it's I I've probably unless you're telling me, it's like the first of its kind everything was has been groundbreaking dressy part and it Spielberg so I'll watch it. I just need to make sure my kids aren't awake. The last thing I want to do is be up at three in the morning is because they're scared by A. T REX Vasella Raptor now velociraptor Falesa. Literally. Don't attempt to say it scary is out of all the dinosaur. Just. You know. So I gotta wait until my kids are I think you'll find for your kids? Told me to try gone twelve. I was pretty young when I watched it too. All right. We've got each other homework hiring. What does it Manchurian candidate dude. It is amazing. It is amazing. Sixty two dude John Frankenheimer directed Frank Sinatra starred is it in black and white it his damn straight, black and white and soak it in Pal Angela Lansbury at her finest. She'll. Oh you want. That's a bold statement there rich angel, Lanes Barry at her finest murder. She wrote baby come on your first of all your mispronouncing it. It's murder. She wrote my bed. Man. Man in El Paso. Texas, let's take your phone calls. Here are the rich Eisen show what's up manning? Gentlemen, how are we doing? This is right away. Does that mean space jam doesn't have any residents anymore that's an old movie now well, you know what? obviously as we know Michael and bugs timeless. As by the way, as is Shawn Bradley and coach Del Harris like watching the watching space jam again, just to see the NBA stars of that day right. Detrick you came this crying. There you go. So Yeah Muggsy bogues right also in a Larry. So Bill Murray's. Jordan from the last dance to a last lap I am so. This is great news for him I. Wish You would stay with the kings forty three but having Joe Gibbs racing equipment I am so pumped up for next year. It's It's funny. All the boba haters have gone silent quiet, non existent. So I, take it. They have heard the name Michael Jeffrey Jordan before they are nowhere to be seen and I am so pumped up I was very upset that they're still going Bubba this past Saturday at Bristol, they still boom which Kinda it needs me to say this going back to kickoff night with the cheese on the Texans when those fans booed for making a social stance, which is why they're Bubba that upset me as a fan because I'm a sports fan for every for every for every leak that's out there. If that's the case, people are still going to be inconsiderate and more about it and boom a social stance leave the stand's empty. Leaves them empty other than that I can't wait till you have your next guest either Bubba Guinea hamlet or Michael Jordan gentleman. I. Love You guys I'm glad the fires are simmering down aware stay saying we'll talk to you soon. Well, many. Good call from banning them referring to you know again, bubble Wallace. On asked about his future. And he said that that you know you hadn't decided get. A week later is when he posted, you know he was not going to return to Richard, petty racing. kind of thought to yourself. Why would he do that? Yesterday. Announced Michael Jeffrey Jordan with Denny Hamlin forming his own. Team and his first drivers Wallace. I saw that my got it. Pretty Awesome. About that from the last dance to the last two, the first ride, right? It's. He said last lap but. I think he's but I like he was trying to turn this time inspired by us because you know. Do. You ever ask somebody who hosts to show. How many? Brushes, it took for Picasso to. Paint his painting. Do you ever ask somebody who hosts the show like this one? Big How Beethoven? Love that story that Modine said come to my house. Let's have dinner. Mr and Mrs Kubrick sitting with Mr Mrs Modine. And I'll just start opining about the work that we're doing Chris Yeah and I'll start saying. If you ever say it's too long or whatever three hours we'll anyone ever asked Picasso Albany Strokes took to Russia's paintings. Fantastic. It'd be like us working on a three minute segment for a month. Imagine. Stood by that wall I'll never watched the movie the same way again, and I also didn't know that the governor from the helicopter and like one split scene was actually the original drill sergeant who lost gig. Imagine you're basically you've got like a major role in occur brick film. And you're told, sorry, we're going with the guy who's been around the set whole time. All man that had to be tough. Between Vincent Enough Rio on desk. Two March of two thousand nineteen. I'm GonNa Post something on twitter and instagram little interview from the Green Room with him where he talks about how he got the role of private POW the character looked nothing like him on paper, and so we'll put that up on twitter kind of full metal jacket geek out on him when he was here in person to promote something completely. Makes sense of I mean I mean what role that is look out for that I know and if you haven't seen full metal jacket on, you review what Matthew Modine said about the film here on Peacock. Spoiler alert. It's thirty three years. Later you kinda out the door envision vision that tried to tell he did talk vision quest. So at least we check that box check that there you go. Our poll question at the end of our number two Chris before Michael Fabio will join us to talk some fantasy in a moment. The biggest surprise to and team bears Cardinals Raiders Rams Bears. Raiders Forty three percent bears forty one percent raiders. Okay. I'll give you my two cents on that subject at the top of the next hour. If you're like me an owner if you will of Saquon Barkley and fantasy, how to use supplant him. Do you go with by the way if McCaffrey's out four to six weeks, go with the guy who's going to. Fill in for him. Do you go with the guy who minimize fill in for MOSTER. Who might be out for a while too how do you do this? How do you trust with the giants are going to do? So, much on that front and the Olympic Champ Mikhail Schifrin our number three as well. The biting. I do the first waiver wire pick can get whoever I want. Decision Man, I do I. Do I go with Wayne Goeman. When Dion Lewis may get snaps would've devante freeman comes off of the couch t pick him up then you go with Mike Davis just four weeks. Do I go or do I go with Jerick McKinnon. Teaming. Nick mullins might be pulling the trigger right of the show link or to. Garoppolo may not be out for that long team in my league has McCaffrey Berkeley. So how does that happen? We do auction. You can just get the pay for him. So we have a two hundred dollar budget and they spent the. Majority of their money. So. Damn season. Kinda. Over it. That's that's. Yeah. Grand closing hey, everybody. Go out and vote.

Postgame Show: Domonique Foxworth & Matthew Modine

"Apologies for how claustrophobic that felt at the end. Perlman was really good. We wanted more and more details from Jeff Pearlman because he's clearly reported the Holy Hell out of that book as he often does why he's a New York Times bestselling author who dunks on me when I asked him about basketball books not selling We have time to get to Dominic Foxworth and Mike Ryan arguing about whether or not Jameis. Winston could do important special things in New Orleans and eliminate the turnovers. Basically it's an odd Argument the taste on Hell James Winston argument whatever I mean it's it's it's not something that people argue about but no, this is actually something that people argue about all the time and it really bothers me on twitter how passionate people are about this topic but I don't think there's going to be an argument. All I want dominy to do is admit that it's probably a little too soon to rush to judgment on some hill given how little we've actually seen it tastes hill, and then we're good bud-. Dominate too soon to rush to judgement the judgement at that tastes them is A. Football player as younger in would say who can throw I would not consider tasting hill quarterback because you know what you don't do with quarterbacks. Put them on kickoff team and make them your personal protector. If you think that this person has the most difficult skill, it is to find his sport. You're not risk that by making him h back. So not only do I think that he is starting quarterback Sean Payton not think that he's a starting quarterback evidenced by the fact that they did all that and then they. Went and picked up probably the highest profile backup quarterback. There is so I I'm not super passionate like I eight take hill but I think that it's pretty obvious that no one really sees takes them as a starting quarterback in this league even the people who pay him sixteen million dollars it's a cute little trick that you're doing with highest-profile available backup quarterback because number one no. That one is starting for the New England Patriots Right now, there wasn't a big market for Jameis Winston think James Winstons kind of fully formed product. Out. Did. You say that a backup is starting. Well the in terms of like what you were saying in terms of what was perceived to be the backup market you made him the highest profile to just boost your argument and it's just built on a fallacy because Cam Newton was available for everybody. He wasn't guaranteed the Sunni job and now dominating for the Patriots let's not get hung up on that. Your job is a football coach is to find. Now it's okay. Dominic Polian Dominique poll I have controls Dominic Polian with now apparently lamenting the fact that trump eaton's just putting the best possible football players on the field I'm sorry hill can start over drew brees That's that's difficult. Considering you know drew brees set you know milestones in that sport tastes him. Hill is actually good at all those other things. I have a very difficult time believing Chad Henny can run protection on the punt team otherwise, you'd see it. Okay cool but we can put your risk. So people who played positions they messed up their shoulders, they mess elbows, they get concussions they have a terrier yells they have injuries that would. Limit their ability to progress going forward. So like you would think that is the rich, just a risk taking and I'm not argue tasting hill I'm happy and pay love people getting paid I think hill can probably start a few games in this league at quarterback but he is not the caliber of quarterback that you would want to build your team around and going forward and I don't think that's much to argue about and maybe I could be wrong but it's not like tastes some young prospect like pay some who takes him in and saying that he can't thought of drew brees. Really saying that much on. At this point. Breeze is not all that great and I was last year and I think that Jameis Winston I'm hi Jamie Watson with champagne going forward. I think that's GonNa be a good marriage. If you think back to drew brees, they draft Philip rivers and decided they were going to move on from drew brees, Florida breeze got. We've already out the door we make it like she got injured. So then he had to leave no, he was out the door and he was thought to not be a top level star in this league. Any gets with shopping and together they become this. I think it's possible given. The fact that James Winston is also thought of as one of the smarter football guys out there contrary to what you may believe most people think that his issue was is with over analyzing not not being able to re Defense I. think that is a better future. So if you had to choose between those two I, put my money on. James Winston. And Sean paying making pretty future that more than I would on. Age back and Shawn Payne doing the same thing. Dismissive to call him an H Mak. He's good at those things and much better than your standard backup quarterback. It's unlike James Winston can do those things oddly enough. The best argument to be made for a lack of faith in his ability to quarterback was the recent nugget that was reported by Adam Schefter that the saints if drew brees retired were in on the Tom Brady sweepstakes that would probably be the biggest indictment however. A minute half the buck against your notion that Tastes Hill isn't a quarterback you build around when the Saints Have Christened Him with this sixteen million dollar a year contract that basically says, you're the guy maybe as soon as next year, they're essentially telling you with their dollars. No we will build around this guy because we couldn't afford to let him go as a free agent and get nothing back outside maybe traffic here or there. Maybe you're right. But I don't think that's why I think they brought him back for that amount because what he means to their offense because their quarterback is aging and their quarterback ten, not through certain passes takes them hill the guy that they bring in for certain gadgets to Kinda. Manufacturer big planes because they don't believe their quarterback and do so. So I think that's what the money was. Not necessarily for to retain him as their therapy going forward and Yeah, I don't know we can. We're I it seems foolish to argue about. Imagining. What we think the saints behavior suggests, but I do think that James Winston is a more promising long term quarterback in some until I think you'd be hard pressed to find people who disagree with the with. The. Saints Disagree because they gave them sixty million dollars and they barely gave teams winston any guaranteed money but I will say I just sort of about the market not necessarily about the potential to player. came. Off. Camera Budgets. To look at what the market the market is set by several NFL jeans while I respect your your NFL opinion i. respect that of all the NFL GM's over yours and I will say people sound awfully certain that Tastes Hill can throw the ball when I've seen them actually throw the ball I've been impressed with what can we make a judgment on tatum hill and his ability to throw the ball given how little we've actually seen him doing it. I think you can make a Jesuit based on what he was in college and what he has done in this league they have not asked him to read. I think fast. Wait a second dominic. Lamar Jackson's accuracy has improved year-over-year. Why can't you afford foretaste hill that benefit considering he threw the nicest pass in the play offs. The Marge Actions Agar's no I'm not talking about accuracy or those skills. It's just being a quarterback and reading defenses. Then doing those things Kamar Jackson wasn't always good those things you're talking awfully coded here. Dominique Foxworth awfully coded and I don't appreciate this rhetoric that is sent us back several years. We're trying to make progress here. Gentlemen I rest my case hold on a second why get cracked the Code Got Billy Billy why do you have your head in your hands? Why Bill You were holding your head is if that's the worst radio you've ever heard in your life and you wanted to bring back the massing or do they. have to go to bathroom and I was like this is what I put off going to her.

Thank you for pointing it out very delicate way you ask. You were very gentle. It was really kind of amazing to hear you go. Hey, listen are you To Ball. God. Autorite, let's pick this up here. Ready. All right. So this is a name you recognize. Matthew Modine, he's here on behalf of full metal jacket. It is a classic. It's one of the classic war movies disturbing. I remember being disturbed by this movie it is now on Four K. L. Alterra hd Blu Ray Combo Pack and digital available now Matthew Modine with us on ESPN radio I twenty to thirty minutes of that movie is as good as intense. A movie you'll ever see in your life. Do you agree what about the rest of it? What about the rest of it is great with wanted thirty minutes The whole thing is is disturbing matthew joins us now on ESPN radio got a number of different questions for him. Thank you for making the Time magazine I'm curious if your experience growing up among you know several siblings I think six siblings in a drive in movie theater is the reason that you gravitated toward acting. Oh, there's no question that that I had an infant sin in those days that the drive in theaters, the the managers would book the movies they they would receive sixteen millimeter trailers of movies were coming out that year and my dad would. Take. What movies he thought would do well, which would make money at I've been. And and everyone's why you'd get these feature at. That would explain how does. It was really exciting when about to making the dirty dozen. And you know seeing Lee Lee Marvin and all those actors in. England It was so cool. and. Then I saw one about Darby Hogan the little people which had sean connery in it and I was I got really confused because. You know a little boy. You'd think Sean Connery is You Know James Bond, and then all of a sudden you see him. This. Movie about the making of a movie where he's hanging and and playing kind of this Scottish person from the highland during the time of a Leprechaun's so and then I saw one about the making of Oliver's movie Oliver and the kids were singing dancing. So I thought well, that's a good life that's what I should be doing. So we were living in Utah at the time I started taking tap dancing lessons and join the glee club and and then you know started taking. Drama classes and and? appeared in school plays absolutely played a big part in my child that. How does it come to be then I and what happened exactly I don't know if it was full metal jacket or something else where you're getting offered the big roles in top gun in Wall Street in back to the future one of them while you're doing you know you're out here doing full metal jacket like how that time in your life, what was it like and how did you arrive specifically there were those rules are arriving at your doorstep. Well you know that Thing that they call in Hollywood, they say all the person's hot. So you know every producer directors trying to raise money and get their movies made. So when an actor has some heat on that that that there's a better chance that they'll be able to. receive. The. Financing. Films. So it's a it's a really silly thing. It doesn't have anything generally to do with the ability it it it's a, it's a about finance. in sometimes you have a combination of both you know like. They take any of your favorite actors and not only as Jack Nicholson a an amazing actor, but people go to see his movies. So it was financed and talent. You Know Al Pacino Robert Deniro. The people that you know whose careers that I really look up to and admire So it was a combination of of box office. Success, and talent. But was it born of full metal jacket? The role in full metal jacket like hotness came from where specifically? Well. Excuse me. It began with me with a movie that I did with Robert Altman I made a Vietnam movie with him. Called called streamers. Okay. Man It was a big Mac check in everything. You need to get some water is everything. Okay. All right I'm fine I. Just put some coffee so I'll be able to smooth my throat up. I don't have the co don't have the Kobe. Thank goodness ago. It's just a cost. Yeah I forgot what I was talking about vision quest is certainly helped but streamers the Robert Altman movie. We won the prize the best actor prize at the Venice Film Festival. So that that that really set me up and that setup vision quest and then I auditioned for Birdie that Alan Parker and that won the prize at the Cannes Film Festival and I did a movie with. Diane Keaton who was hot as a pistol and and Mel Gibson where I played his brother called. Mrs Selfo and you know and then I heard about full metal jacket quite by accident from Val. Kilmer Val kilmer thought that I had got the part in the movie and I said no I didn't audition. You had to send a video vhs tape to Stanley Kubrick to audition to be in the movie and I didn't do that and but the fact that he said that I was playing the part I called Warner brothers and asked him could they send vision quest? The Stanley Kubrick I knew he was making his movie with. With Warner Brothers and then Alan. Parker was editing Birdie in London and I asked Alan would he sends Mr Kubrick a scene from the movie is senior to and and then I don't know how weeks later I received a script through the mail slot at my house. It didn't go through the agent. It didn't go through the proper channels it came from you directly from Stanley Kubrick and this just to show you his humility and. Give you a window into his personality. He said hello my name is Stanley Kubrick I'm a film director This is a screenplay that I'm working on I. Wonder if you'd consider being in my film so I mean. He's Stanley Kubrick and to have that kind of humility. Introduce himself as a filmmaker. Film director. Keep in mind Kubrick's nineteen eighty seven Vietnam War classic film full Metal Jacket, it's available in four K resolution for the first time you mentioned Mrs. So full and Birdie a among Mel Gibson and Nicholas Cage. WHO's more unique. Definitely, Nicholas Cage Yeah. There's Yeah Nick Nick I. think that's one of his most beautiful performances in Birdie. He's there's there's no silliness or weirdness in you know he's not in any cockroaches or jumping on any tables but yeah nick, Nick went to school with Jim Carey and Crispin Glover. and. That that the teacher I'm told us to have them compete against each other about who could be the weirdest and and the most extreme. So q matching competing with Jim Carey and Crispin Glover is wonderful actor and quite mad so Those those those. I would like to see a movie with those three together although I just saw peggy sue got married again I forgot Jim Carey was in it and Nick Cage and Jim Carey are high school mates and they're in a band together singing. Not What Matt, you have to give us your strangest Nick Gage. I don't know who sounds worse. You're him I I mean Modine gave me whatever he has mad. You have a strange nick cage story. When we were filming at the slaughterhouse in Birdie. No that's What I tell you know I was driving down the road with them. We were we were in beverly, hills, California and he was. And he was looking at he was driving and there was a car full of girls that were over my right shoulder. So he was looking at me and goes, Oh, hold on a second and he looked at the girls and waved at them gave them are very flirtatious look and the girls kind of screened and drove away they were horrified by by. Any any looked at me and he goes. It's not working. I. It was he was like. A sixty year old perverted man looking at young girls and. Girls Tro box. You know what? These Nicholas Cage with the Bulbous is looking at them looking all crazy turning on his ego maniacal charm but I want the Nicholas Cage Slaughterhouse. Story. Yeah. The slaughterhouse that was just we were covered it. It was horrible. They was dead horses real dead horses I don't think they'd ever be allowed to do that today dogs. I mean it was horrendous and we were we had that stink honest and Alan Parker wanted to run down the road and they filled up this puddle. With water and it was it was it was horrible and we got filthy dirty and Stinky with all this death of animals on us and we both had p. m. since we were soaking wet, we're just both of us. Stood there and laughed at each other and peed our pants is growing as. Not really good story. Probably just horrified. Dead animals all over the. Way that we could get away with that today Matthew Modine with us here on ESPN radio full metal jacket is available now on four K ultra hd blue, Combo pack, and digital check it out. So, Dan mentioned earlier that you turn down Tom Cruise's role at topgun Charlie Sheen's part in wall. Street. And even Michael J. Fox's part Mardi MC fly back to the future which one of those guys owes you the most money well, first of I could never imagine anybody but Michael Fox and in as Mardi MC fly. He just nailed it. He was brilliant. Tob Probably Tom Cruise. Yeah Yeah Tom Cruise Yeah Yeah. But. You were doing full metal jacket at the time, right? Well, I just come back from the Berlin Film Festival, where I took that movie that Mrs Soulful, the Diane Keaton and Mel Gibson, where they couldn't go to Berlin because they had they were working or something. So they invited me to take you know to go represent the movie at the Berlin. Festival in and of course then. The Wall was still up and they said, would you like? To go to East Berlin I can't go to East Berlin I'm an American and they said, no, you can't because you are an. American. So I saw yeah, I wanna go to East Berlin so I went across checkpoint Charlie and I grew up on the side of the Mississippi and Education. System is is is quite different than the people that you meet on East Coast and or the east side of the Mississippi That's a generalization 'cause. Certainly, there are pockets that are very much like the west side of the Mississippi, but I had I had not been told or taught in school about the Russia's participation in the Second World War and while I was in east. Berlin I met Russian soldiers that were different than my brother who went to Vietnam. I smoked at the time I gave them my cigarettes. They gave me pins from their uniform and they were just kids they were. There were just just kids and just like me and they could speak English. I couldn't speak Russian and And I met him at this monument for the millions of Russians who had died fighting the Nazis in the Second World War and I went wait a minute. We were allies fighting a common enemy and that just wasn't taught in school and it it really. You know there are things that happen in your life that You know if you imagine yourself like a horse with blinders on and you see things a certain way and then you get ex- exposed to experience different things than those blinders get opened a little bit and you you start to see people in different ways and and and understand the world in a different way and that happened to me while I was in East Berlin met these These these these kids that where are perceived enemies with that I've been told you know the Russians, we're to destroy the world and and you know it it. It's there there are people there are government that they cause problems but people are people and and generally they want to be appreciated and loved and take care of their families and it just to bring this back to Kubrick I. think that we find this in all of Stanley Kubrick's films that. Whether it's Dr Strangelove Paths of glory or two, thousand, one space odyssey that that when early man learn to pick up a bone and beep somebody's head in in and overpower them that you know. That's that's part of our evolution, and so long as we use violence to solve our problems until we can find a peaceful solution to our problems to sit down at a table and negotiate and find ways of of finding peaceful resolution to the differences that we have in the problems that we have our destiny is to be like slim pickens in two I mean Dr Strangelove writing the nuclear bomb down and you know ending the world nuclear annihilation that we that. This this is the thing about full metal jacket is that I think that the reason that the people have a deeper understanding to this film than say platoon or boys and company C or the deer hunter or any number of movies that are made about war is that this is not about a particular war. This is about what what happens when we take young people who've been taught their whole. Life to to respect one another you know and thou shalt not kill, and then we put them in boot camp where we have to reprogram them to kill their enemy and work together as a unit you know with a chain of command and to pull the trigger on their enemy before the enemy pulls the trigger on them that this that that it it it touches people on a deeper psychological web. Plane because it's not really about Vietnam, it's about it's about human behavior. Again and wh what happens. And what happens to somebody when they have to stand above a young. Girl who's begging him to enter life and and the psychological scars that that soldier every soldier who's ever fought a war has to carry with them the rest of their life Matthew Again, I want to tell the audience full metal jacket is available. Now Four K. Resolution for the first time it is a war movie classic I've got to. Let you go because you're people are saying that you're out of time but I can't let you end on dead horses and war and somebody beaten to death by phone. So give me a good any given Sunday story before you get out of here because you're the doctor, the immoral doctor in any given Sunday and I gotta get you out of here. But what I need something a little lighter here at the end. I get I get you Lawrence Taylor he said Lawrence Taylor. The great of Middle Linebacker for the New York giants said you know Matthew I never went looking for trouble, but it always found me. That's Always did thank you matthew. We appreciate your time again. Full Metal Jacket available now four K. Resolution for the first time. Thank you sir. Thank you. Thank you matt.

Will Kevin Feiges Marvel Promotion Impact Star Wars? - Movie Talk

"On today's show we're talking about Kevin Feige taking over the world or maybe just marvel then there's a brand new trailer for the upcoming movie thank you for listening to this podcast one production available on apple podcasts and podcast one one later in today's show but before we get to our conversations we've got a little snippet from ours Zombie Land Double Tap review for you check it out takes place in real time another fifteen million dollars right now on Kevin feige because it was just announced that he's being named chief creative officer of Marvel as fun fact on this one doctor sleep is longer than the movie that it's a sequel to the shining that one clocks in at a hundred and forty six minutes or two hours headline report stating that Jada Pinkett Smith is returning to the franchise they're going to join Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne Moss who are reprising their roles as I am however many years we are removed from that first film the character some of them are kind of grown up now and they're still fighting zombies and yeah I mean that's pretty next up is something that was confirmed by our very own Jeff Snyder Neil Patrick Harris is set to join the cast of the Matrix four and then on top of that there's also a brand new after that solid thirty million dollar opening addams family is reportedly expected to hold well in weakened two with an estimated fifty percent drop that would mean the movie could make twenty six minutes now last up on our call sheet it's a trailer we're going to be talking about the new trailer for Jay Roach's bombshell this one hits theaters on number twentieth and of course it stars Charlene Darren Nicole Kidman Margot Robbie and also John Lithgow stay tuned because we're GONNA be diving into this was pretty much the easiest plot to give for that exact reason so feel similarly that if you enjoy the comedy and Energy Zombie Land You will enjoy the comedy and energy of this foam think that's the exact same thing that I walked away from the movie within my mind is that you know if if you dug the first one I can't see a reason why you wouldn't enjoy hello everyone welcome back to movie talk we've got a great show for you today with Rocca and Marvel Studios President fighting overseas the creation production and release of all marvel cinematic universe movies and upcoming Disney plus shows but now five years response moving on over to Dr Sleep now AMC is reporting that the doctor sleep runtime is a hundred and fifty two minutes or if you prefer that is two hours and thirty two minutes support for the overall creation of marvel storytelling across all mediums which of course includes publishing film TV and animation when Trinity of course and then also we recently spoke about this one Yahya Abdul Mateen the second is reportedly joining the franchise as its lead in this new movie all right what I was going to say about the plot which is if you've seen Zombie land you know the plot of Zombie Land Double Tap essentially I think that's part of the reason why almost tripped up on the plot the abby on the desk but I gotta get to that call sheet first story on today's call sheet is atoms family related according to deadline a sequel the element is very very strong of this movie I agree and they have still killer chemistry it's clear that they probably enjoy each other as people getting this ten years later which is crazy to me I was beyond thrilled to reunite with them and the team behind the movie didn't disappoint in that respect so I still think the family Oy this One of the things that I always took to most in that first movie isn't just like the crazy colors the fun of the rules the creative ways that they use Zombie John due to the addams family which just theaters last week and and did quite well it's in the works and they've already dated for October Twenty Second Twenty Twenty one glimpse I I mean apocalypse it's a very lighthearted approach to the apocalypse right it's like what are all the fun things yes yeah and especially the they Once again conjure that great sense of wish fulfillment fantasy within the apocalypse it's very light upheld road but it was the family it was the four them I loved spending time with the four of them I love being part of that group and when that movie ended I wanted to be with that group more and so the fact that what's the plot of the movie little rock goes missing they go out to find her that's the gist all right what did you think of Zombie Haley I liked it a lot of fun I feel like is that translates to them having a lot of fun onscreen but also just I you know I keep using the F. Word Fun but it really like it's so applicable urge now of storytelling across every single medium which is a very very big deal here and it could have great implications for a lot of things hey hello Argos right I'm good I'm happy mood is nervous today and I'm scared out of my mind forward are we gonna see basically everything connect now from the movies to the shows to animated projects comics you name it totally incomplete opd maybe someday Chevy how does it everything's awesome are you still looking at the best coffee Disney plus stuff all of it has to connect novels all of it has to connect in some way shape form now does this mean other titles in the comics they can play around short you could do in that guys you're in for it today that's your one and only warning because now it's time to introduce the panelist it's Roca and Jabbie you can argue about the film's quality all day long who cares what it is they saw cohesive thing in motion the Kathleen Kennedy came in included. That would be terrible. I would never do that to you I would never do that to you we're GonNa talk about our some of our favorite movie bosses in the live action speaking of moving people aren't showing up to help out with specific issues when you mean kind of like the let's say the agents of shield and Marvel Netflix show anything else I just WANNA see daredevil comeback Charlie Cox both okay I like him as daredevil like I didn't think I would when I saw the trailer years ago but I fall in love with him I exists comic books but I think they liked the idea of having one person charge of everything they trust Kevin Feige any certainly proven over ten years with traffic or with movies and even before then when that he's working on things that other people are involved in so let's first start with this question what do you think this promotion means for the MC you going so I get all right I'm full disclosure here I gave me a heads up about our I live chat question for later in the episode wouldn't it be really funny after all this stress if I just did but it can still exist which is called legends with Marvel here now they wanted all the same thing Oh everything in one lane all connected. TV show comic books movies he was doing stuff with Wolverine Way back when he knows what is right with marvel and can get it correctly so and I think there's also their way of like pinning them down a lot of rumors about him So do you think that that is the intention to all of a sudden take star wars approaching keep everything cannon I probably shouldn't pose this question when I don't really know the answer in charge of our emotional state going daredevil come back is that a possibility ever is that gonNA come back there's been a lot of rumors as if he does that I'll be happy I don't care what he does see that comeback somehow some way I don't care if integrated just WanNa see it back you looking at here is they saw how this model worked with Kathleen Kennedy in the Star Wars early in the day and Asaf Cadet who's the new director for the Maradona documentary that's out there and HBO so there's a lot today and I'm excited wants to talk to John Rocca. I have to do that but I'm happy to be here because this is going to be fun to talk about all these subjects tease any of you got Matthew Modine later on in the day it's cool yeah I've got Omar EPPs it takes a cue from one or others in a sense and it leased leaves some sector of Marvel open to storytelling that isn't directly connected to everything that we've seen before just to continue to have creative possibilities out there because as much as I trust Kevin Feige and he has most certainly I mean he has to be intimately involved in it so he's just in these compaq rooms now and I guarantee you he's been in these rooms already before he took dismantle I'm sure they unofficially had right and when I think about a promotion for someone like Kevin Feige who has been the architect of all this it does make sense to me but you know if anything I kind of hope marvel case just because I mean the origin of these characters lies in comic books rather than you know George Lucas creating first movie so I I wonder if he will earned this position and if the time comes he might deserve to rise in the ranks again but I just don't want to see everything completely boxed in as much as the sector of Star Star Wars that I feel a little out of touch with their star wars comics they all connect up but they don't necessarily connect up to the overall storyline they're trying he's he's just in the room it doesn't mean that everything has to be approved and only five he can do it it's more like feige here's the pitch if he likes it boom it ah green lights it and it's good to go so it has that extra level of trust that it'll work I had to make a prediction right now I think there will be a possibility for offshoot type things when I say what do we get any star wars comics any more that aren't cannon have they but we do have the but there are star wars comics of leave the door open for offshoots that have nothing to do with what we're seeing on screen but I don't know like you have the business bug in my head and when I think about that out there was a big worldwide disaster but only iron man's working on it when they've got the avengers like it just kind of weird when it's full integration but you have to explain why these oh come into poach him or something for their franchise is this kind of sets him up to stay at marvel for a long time and possibly move up even further down the road I got a question for the certain rooms to see what his input is what thoughts are and I also don't think it doesn't mean we can't have offshoots things like that just asked me foggy going in that sounds good do that doesn't necessarily have to connect up it just means that would happen going forward but I don't think he's ever GonNa go back like I think they're still going to take the mentality of things that were started under foggy are in play but team came in they looked at this thing is okay this is one lane everything going to connect everything is going to touch up it's all going to be can everything else outside of it is not going to be Canon is like this full integration thing does it ruin the suspension of disbelief for either of you when Sir when Solo projects come out like like I remember when iron man three came out questions where it's like when these big epic things are happening in the EMC you if technically they're connected why aren't these people are called I will I actually let me ask you a road roco question that's and not have to catch up on twenty two movies and whatnot or four other shows before watching in daredevil or something yeah I think those scenarios the MCI I think you make a great point to be concerned about it absolutely but I also think what he is is basically now from this point forward or when he takes this new mantle huge things were happening in the films or whatever she didn't necessarily have to explain it in the show the show could get away with its own rules its own paradigm where like frustrate I really don't think they're ever going to bring those marvel net flicks characters as we knew them back into the fold if anything we might get new iterations of those characters bosses I didn't plan this at all let's locavore Kevin Feige who's the boss of everything it marvel or you know what he is he's basically in base force and so set New York so daredevil could become in that way certainly Jessica Jones so do you think that if they do that though it's going to be the events of what happened it won't be something that which is a wing to the fans but it won't be something the necessary leans in to what happened in those shows so I would be very surprised if they did just because as the defenders that vendors have to have to factor in as much as they WANNA go cosmic and they've still got to have anchor on earth and the defenders are more of a ground later marvel cinematic universe but I wanna make sure there's more you know offshoots that don't that don't have that same vibe to it if you know what I mean how do you feel like there's a world and this does seem like a long shot but I'm not going to completely close the door to this possibility maybe they will bring Charlie Cox in to play daredevil again but it's going to be will make it feel like a distinctly clean break in a sense I think if we get anything that relates to those old marvel TV shows on Netflix it'll be an occasional comment wind in those seasons looping in or do you think it's going to be more of a and I don't necessarily mean a completely different interpretation of those characters but I think they're going to do something to make it feel it isn't limited to that and I think the way you described it might be a little too like Loosey Goosey for me that's actually going to happen I think there's going to be some creative possibility oh I like that I like that it was his own thing and didn't need didn't depend on this thing over here especially for people who are just coming in that are more casual they can just drop in and enjoy something shoot I don't mean a spin off of something with another character I mean things that aren't connected to the MC you it's like I'm thinking about the what if series that's coming out I just hope it is in out some other Kevin feige news that broke recently and how this new promotion might affect that we know that Kevin Feige is developing star wars movie and you know again this is add over all but you know but I like the I like this you're a huge fan of the full integration of everything I like things to connect I'm kind of in that way which is which is is I want there to be entry points reasonable entry points for people actually think a lot of the movies can stand on their own two feet regardless of the the well defined connections with the semi new interpretation of the character if there's if there's so many fans out there rooting for him to keep their all they're already rumors that Christopher is GonNa come back possibly as just cajones into this new universe the comics because you know you could make that argument for every comic Book Line spider-man's how come all the other New York superheroes aren't showing up to help or the other Newark Villains aren't showing up to help the other gland cal ripkin had his own comic for a few series or a few episodes issues rather but it didn't connect up necessarily into the overall stuff that they were doing I wonder if this is different like certain TV shows that didn't connect up and they could mention stuff that was happening in the ninety s it felt independent because then explain where people were too so I think they're they're probably doing that to tee up what we're discussing with the future of Marveling Mc you but we also have to talk about in Star Wars but starting to position himself to maybe you know not necessarily completely take over that element of Disney but step in a larger capacity so one it's doing this it's just part of my train mentality of reading stuff comics is that you allow suspension of disbelief all started to actually make an effort maybe I don't know maybe Feigen joining forces with Kathleen Kennedy and leading Star Wars together I think a very very smart guy and if doesn't own it for the job it's him I'd love to see what he does with it as long as you see people who get handed more responsibility as they move up the chain more and more trust this is them handing a little more responsibility confiding how does he deal with videos with it really well positive negative for me sometimes but I like things to connect because because I'm an old comic book reader and back when they used to have a series dude got by this episode of Alpha flight so you can keep going with the just speculation for when that story broke but a lot of the conversation was is this just the tip of the iceberg is this Kevin feige taking not just a role in series and accepts it makes you by other comics that you normally wouldn't have tried so that you could get into it so this is also maybe a mentality businesswise as you mentioned Perry's between the two gentlemen and certainly there's a possibility he could move into that situation especially because no one complains about fighting and unforced Kathleen Kennedy she's taking some slings and arrows as great as he is there's there's a breaking point there is a point where it is too much for one individual person and you know I think we talk about this with with star wars is it just going to be probably less than the overall in what he's doing those Lisov your issue though because now all the TV shows will connect everything do you guys think that all these job requirements mean for his input on that Star Wars movie and does this new promotion completely take off the table the possibility yeah well I wouldn't normally watch his TV show but apparently it's going to link up into this movie later on so I got to watch it so it's a way of training you know I know white disaster in a show or a movie and all the vendors Jones show up and it's just like spider-man's working on this like you know what I'm saying that happens in the comics so that makes sense for that to happen colonie or something or someone like him and make him her number to someone who can focus on the nitty gritty because this is a big on with this here's a new toy play with it see what you can do enjoy yourself enjoy yourself expand yourself creatively have a good time but I don't think they'll be such a under I would love to see him take over every gosh darn things me personally have it all into exactly what you brought up earlier is my only concern and it's you know cap things going to be fine so Kevin moving where he's going I think it just makes sense he's also his finger on the pulse of what works much better than Kathleen Kennedy's I'm very excited to see what he does and I think the conversation is going to start to happen with marvel now to as much as I believe in him and his reputation there is a point where someone needs to you know a lot of people people looking forward to star wars episode nine people want to see what these Disney series are going to be these animated series coming out of all of that starts to turn the corner for Star Wars fans they move past the old stuff wouldn't mind if it in the coming years he starts to maybe named people not necessarily his successor but his right hand the team around him where about TV Film Live Action Animation Comics a star wars movie what they're dealing with over at Sony there's so much on his plate there's GonNa be more responsibility down the road I think this is them lining him up to take over your spot down the road I do believe that twenty we'd look we're talking off camera there's twenty years age difference something like that I am not saying that this definitely closes the door for him being super hands on with that particular project but there's only so much one man can do we're talking bills and keep them going and that doesn't always work out you know we've seen this before someone creating something and then handing it over to some successor successor absolutely fumbles so busy he can do a lot of things that's kind of what Kevin fight is built on a pair you bring up two interesting points one I my my belief is this is you know if you work in businesses long enough start to assemble a team around him or maybe some go to people right underneath him it's like I said this before I think one of the best things Kathleen Kennedy could do is you know pick out if he is occupied with something they can step in handle it and we can have just as much faith in them I think I think what you're saying is actually a key there because he's the five people next director's going to be I can't get in touch with Feigen he's off doing this complex thing I is that going to affect relationships I wonder that's something he's got to be concerned about as well just sure a role in which is why we have to bring up the star wars thing because the way I interpreted that news when it broke is that he's got a story he's super passionate about and he wants to be hands on with the taking over the star wars now which is unforced virtues of fantastic producer so no one's thinking oh Kathleen Kennedy could be maybe moving in and maybe she doesn't have an interest in that situation that's certainly possible too but of the needs to Kathleen to slide Kevin at this point especially after the contract extension and what have you I think it's a dangerous road to walk them Ledley Enough Star Wars certainly Mandolin is Comic Book Fan Yes and I think he'll be able to identify people to hire much more effectively than Kathleen Kennedy or whoever else because he's coming at it from a creative standpoint as well not just the ball when they take over so those of those concerns and you bring up another interesting point too we should look at the possible negative this is is he going to be stretched to the breaking point him he's the people he surrounded himself with helping him to make these decisions 'cause he's taking credit for like making all these smart decisions I'm having conversations with the people getting informed trying to figure out them the proper amount of attention to get everything where you needed to be I don't know I think the difference between him and others like Kathleen Kennedy is he's not coming from a business standpoint he's like a true through August caught in the middle there's pros and cons to every single scenario I understand this approach I appreciate how well they've done it thus far but I I go with what you said I what's this the smartest move forward and so I'm pretty sure he'll just hire more people that he trusts to help make the most informed decisions posits not to say that these people don't exist for for all we know that out there I wouldn't mind meeting some of these people if they already exist especially because like me is just like a freaking colossal monster right now that folks in the movie stuff is easy now they're expanding it more and more creatives more and more people vaudin productions are GonNa want your ear and your time are you going to be able to give all the NIA bombshell and also the doctor sleep runtime has been confirmed and it's long all in today's movie talk I agree job was finding a foggy Faina Kathleen Kennedy so now five he's got to do the same thing ironically down the road is find his version of himself over his of Kathleen Kennedy somebody who can take over these the keys the face of Marlboro for all we know already has some very good people around him and likely does it's just you know like we're sitting here on movie talk movie news is a big deal what's the actual final cut of the film would you guys think of the trailer did this do anything to add to what they started with that first teaser trailer so the true yesterday for the first time I was floored a new bombshell trailers so I actually was lucky enough to see the movie last night there are some first reactions let review it just yet but before I even share some of these I just get afraid of the smart guy getting spread too thin on so many different things that's my only concern is l. wave you listen to so he was so busy he was so busy apparently he business if that makes any sense I got a I got high hopes for this move in congrats to foggy a well deserved promotion right there I story number two today is that they've got their pivoting right now in some interesting ways and I think they need to do that with our leadership as well I think you make a great point period absolutely because if what I'm saying it comes through the Idir seems like five is certainly as interested in moving forward and Ford and Ford as the accepts more this responsibility so I like this idea I think star giving that star wars movies more like we love you here comes out everything from now going forward I don't Disney plus we were saying how certain across the board because we're curious about when people we love heroes of ours like go down we WanNa know how all that transpired what what went on was the behind the scenes of that and so I feel like even for the I mean I love I love Charlotte's their own though and I think that this is a great story to tell I think that one of my questions was appealing only to the left and I think that it appeals Oh was a well acted well intentioned mess like bubble gum version of the loudest voice which was far superior much like vice tone is all over the place say more when allowed continuing on here Oh hey it's made mighty rattled by bombshell right now a sharp searing electrifying piece that just made an indelible because the acting incredible I love all three of these ladies as actresses absolutely I was a bit thrown off of the meeting with Kate McKinnon that with the Katie Walsh here bombshell is fascinating a spiky rollocking relentless legal thriller I love how morally complex the filmmakers and actors allow the characters do things that many people can understand while also being encouraged to view the opposite side of the situation okay so this is an interesting trailer God all three of these women that you see on the screen behind right now I think they dig into the complexities of what they're going through in a way that creates an entry point or I've got a couple of first reactions to the full movie for you guys and I want to know your thoughts after we run through the most of them are fairly positive my own tweet included but we're GONNA kick it off with a resident contrarian it's just Snyder Jeff road wanted to sleep on it before tweeting and I know all be in the minority here but bombshell Russian on me and is bound to make a whole lot of noise through award season shortly seren Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie bring on the nominations continuing on with it looks incredible kind of challenge a little bit of Churchill in that way then the crown my thing is I hope the film's even-handed and showing some of the despicable things these people said on air redressing that in the equation then I'm okay with seeing this movie seeing a more rounded picture about what happened here all right my concern I have a small comment on be they're not the heroine's you expect they're just trying to do right Charlene's is unreal and Kazoo heroes makeup is insane revoke fairly won an Oscar for that thing you can't argue that Mackay's the big short same thing the big short writer wrote this as well so Jay Roach did that Austin powers movie is in here doing this seeing that it's having that comedic element that is within the realm of like what's actually happened like the reaction things can be funny and that's just part of life how hard directors are sliding into these blockbuster films are talking about these comedy directors now that are sliding in and doing some incredible work with more dramatic fare as we saw what am I feels yes said which is the humorous element I actually liked the integration of humor into this because it could be a boring dry subject otherwise for some people for me like it gets even more hooks doing so that threw me off a little bit but when the trailer finally got into what it's going to talk about how I really enjoyed it and liked it and got to give a shout out to Jay Roach much we're talking about these takes you out of movies like yesterday whenever her scenes were in yesterday I was like why is this is seems weird or in ghostbusters village she was acting in a complete different movie even though I loved everything she was l. riveting and grossing essential empowering procedural about the fall of Fox News top Roger ailes start strong and it's more potent as it progresses superb performances from certain individuals perspectives. It's like that that kind of colors the tone a little bit so it's an interesting interesting line to walk when you're making a movie like did you feel it's a fair movie addict Charles Charles Randolph Joe Your children later that being said here's this is a terrible situation for these women obvious sexual has been horrible thing what they experienced Roger ailes from Charlotte Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie bombshell is a terrific movie I just want to comment on the first one I mean obviously film I can only say so much but I was making Kelly and delivers her boldest performance to date Margaritas absolutely remarkable and is sure to be nominated we can't wrap this up with a tweet from Scott Man's he writes bombshell with this any real story any bio pic you have to be more forgiving and I fully expected to be somewhat of a mess because you're basing it on real stuff and so you can't have like the moving on over to Scotland's lose just a movie talk bombshell is the most important film of the year a quintessential Musi for the METOO era Charlotte's third is unrecognised all three of them performance at all I think he's phenomenal yeah this this one I think is going to I think it's I think it just means that because like even Joe Joe I to judge it's like Oh and then it sunk in and I loved it all the way through so this could just be me as as a viewer whereas well they have to balance out to show me the complete picture Megan Kelly said some pretty despicable things some racist things which is well when she was almost as long as Wednesday at two pm but we're live on the collider video twitter so you have to subscribe there if you WanNa interact live with us if you want to throw in some rumors of your own that we want to incorporate in the show channel Lake Rumor Mill Checkout Promo what's up clutter video fans Josh Mukuba here I'm the host of a brand new show on collider called the rumor mill now we're live every single departments here that I think deliver exceptional work all right before we move into our last topic which is a hard topic which makes me happy we have got some content coming your way on the collider video every little thing that happened on the blue man so do yourself a favor and go subscribe at YouTube dot com slash slash wrestling she all right who's ready to talk perfect narrative structure like you would with the film completely originally you know that is one of the challenges about you know touchy topics like this too especially when some of the movie comes you have to tune in live now you can watch the show on youtube later but again if you WanNa Watch live with me in three panelists getting rowdy giving points to each other and just yelling rumors you need how far to push my comments right now there's a review embargo so on on this point I've only reiterated what has been in these tweets and I can tell you whether or not we making a parody or comedy okay because it feels weird a when Kate does stuff she's always going to be cake which makes her incredible and also at tune in live on the video twitter two pm every single Wednesday what's up Collider Fans Ryan sat here from pro wrestling dot com where you can find the top stories throughout the slash z slash wrestling sheet in particular on Wednesdays we've got a smackdown recap show hosted by John Rocca myself where we pick apart and and talk about both sides I'm I'm not I'm not only yeah yeah it'll be between the harassment resi writing in all of his work is how he he world builds to such an extent where you feel like you know every single corner of let's say a specific town or you know the full history of a character and we're about to take Danny Torrance from a young child at the overlook to an adult who still has these abilities in a wind up in quite a few categories here I know there's a lot of a lot of hype for Charlene's right now and it's well well well earned but there are so many in your face with the blood and guts and stuff like that and I feel like the runtime indicates that it's going to hearken back to the shining style where it's like slow burn more like creepy feeling psychological right up your alley 'cause I look at a time like this and I think you know I I've been reading slash listening to a lot of Stephen King books and one of the constants is it a priority for you guys that you're gonNA

you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not checking out all the shows we do every week on youtube dot com a agree with certain tweets and I think that's where I'm going to draw the line now I had to

Cincinnati Boxer Ezzard Charles from our on that pleasure to welcome in Cam Miller, how are you? I am doing well. How about you good there? I am fantastic is great to catch up with you. Let me do this for someone listening right now. Who who might have just said who was Charles. Give them the cliff notes a couple of bullet points about who Charles was well. I think he he was. Champion and to come from Cincinnati's west side, and to make it out of their back in the forties and the fifties and come out of that that environment. to to fight the likes of Rocky Marciano Joe Louis. He needs to. He beats with his idol. Did his story so fascinating that drives around town knows as Charles Street the road, but they don't know that there was a man behind that street name, and there's a reason why he was a champion. Of Work, of course, a lot of luck, but I just don't think that enough people know about his greatness, and I hope that I can do small parties and just Kinda. Give him his take me back three or four years ago. You're in Washington pirker drinking a cup of coffee and you decided it was time to do it as Charles Project. I'm sitting there. I'm having a cup of coffee. And as these two young gentlemen, and they're arguing one says hey, as a child. He's a musician. No politician and I'm just shaking my head. Thinking I want to go over their. Phone their fate, Google this is Charles, but I already had an idea about doing a film, but that really set in motion that aspect of it, and then watching the Dave Parker a documentary that was last year that got me really excited because of the westside connection that neighborhood that rough and tumble area that Kinda gets glossed over, and the the greatness that came out of there and other Charles is one of those guys, Tim. How do you begin researching guy who fought in forties and fifties and died? Forty years ago Thursday of this week, right? It was I stumbled upon a book by William Debt Lost. The ring, the Ring magazine and he has a fantastic book going through youtube, just watching clips. Just it was unbelievable how this guy who was known as a kind of a meek. He's really boring guy. I mean he was shot by Iran's and fights as a kid. He didn't want to be involved, but when you put him in the ring, he became beast and I think that there's a story there. You might have been boring, and you might have not had the glamorous the Mike Tyson esque! You know streetfighting. Donna but he he just woke up into this, vs when he got in the ring, and the likes of who he fought. It's unbelievable the local filmmaker Cam Miller checking in tonight for a few minutes his latest project as Charles I I loved and we traded notes this morning. When a boxer gets ready to fight, he has to get his mind in the right frame in and get going in to get in the right frame. You were buying things. On Ebay. You know how that goes you WANNA get it pumped up so I'm programs, ticket stubs and looking up things. What can I get? I'm trying to make t shirts, and then of course do that.

Love it now you were. You were already into this one in the pandemic hit. Talk to me about the complications there. Right I had scheduled some interviews that I wanted to do, but it's kind of one of those things. That's well this happened, but it it could have been for the best because it completely changed dynamic my film. I went for making this. You know typical last dance kind of documentary. You're talking to people about what happened in going into and just letting Ezzor tell his story. What did he want to say? I'd go through all the interviews I go through clips where in a radio broadcast where commercials and just kind of get a Bible where he was. Like kind of led me into a different style of film, not talking head approach, but more of let him tell his story. What does he want to say and it really let me just fascinating meeting avenues I'm just so thrilled. It's turned out. We're on the track to being done. Where are you in wants done? What will you do with it? I probably will be finished by the end of July beginning of August I'm looking at the end of August if showing premier, probably a Q. and A. Online, but maybe we can do something outdoors, depending on how things are at that point, but I wanna do q made from like I, do all my films and kind of get people together to of celebrate this whether it's online or virtual, or whether it's in person to kind of give him. Him His view that I think is long overdue. He gets a story told so I'll do that. I'll do a soundtrack that will come out hopefully in a couple of weeks if I finish it if I pump up the either Tiger Larry, they'll get motivated. Finish that and that'll be on spotify I. James and Whatnot kind of like the soundtrack to kind of get you in the mood because there's nothing like talking and music. They kind of go hand. No question I WANNA go back in time and a little bit, and for those who don't know the story I mentioned off the top. The COVINGTON Blue Sox and people have perhaps been too or heard me talk about justice in Covington owned by Richard Dickman, there is a connection there between the COVINGTON blue. SOX and you smoke justice and take me through that story. Well. I showed my film at the Cannes. County Public Library and unbeknownst to me. Audience was once or MR, Richard Hickman and and. He comes up to me afterwards and he's like you don't think about opening up this sports bar and I think I've got an idea for a theme. Well. Of course, he wanted me to do not. He's got the Pathak idea to name. It Walter Smoke Justice after the famous pitcher to pitch the Blue Dachshund opening day on May ninth, nineteen thirteen and I had no idea what to expect, but you can only imagine me going through the microfilm machines. You know those bad boys. Going through those in nineteen, Ninety Eight, and your fast born in your, that sound is still embedded in my head, and you're going through it and you and you and you get to this point where you discover the Blue Sox and then forward twenty years later and you've got this sports bar opens up. It has all these clippings of all these things you've found and all you photos. It's just surreal to carry on that tradition. That's the do is pass on things that people might have forgotten to.

Following up on conversation with the local filmmaker, Miller and I loved I loved the story he told of why of what clinched it, and sitting in in Washington Burg Drinking a cup of coffee and overhearing a conversation and the argument about Charles. He was a politician. No, he was a musician and the ability to do a project to let people know who somebody was and not just somebody ezzard Charles, one of the greatest boxers of all time graduated from Woodward High School in Nineteen Forty two. He fought in World War Two and missed a year from boxing. World heavyweight champion beat Jersey Joe Walcott in forty nine beatty's idol Joe Lewis in nineteen fifty. His bouts with Rocky Marciano. These names I'm mentioning just iconic names in boxing. His bouts with Rocky Marciano are considered legendary classics. He's the only man who I've ever lasted the full fifteen rounds against mercy on Oh. He was friends with Ali. They were neighbors when they both lived in Chicago. Cam told me and some notes this morning. He had financial problems at the end of his. Life and it led to him working as a Bouncer at Copa Club in Newport. Even a brief wrestling career he died from Lou. GEHRIG's disease may twenty eight, the anniversary coming up on Thursday nineteen, seventy five. He was known for his slick defenses precision. His career record was ninety five wins, fifteen losses and one draw as an amateur. He was forty two zero. He turned pro in one, thousand, nine, hundred forty. Trying to think of their the things that stood out and look up stuff on him. This rate you know at the end of his career, he short on money. He kept fighting, and unfortunately it kind a messed with his final record, I think he lost thirteen of his final twenty-three fights to wind up where he did finally. He was diagnosed with the disease. Lou GEHRIG's disease in sixty eight. It affected his legs. Adventure left him completely disabled He spent his last days in a nursing home. He died in Chicago was nineteen seventy six at Cincinnati honored him by changing the name of Lincoln Park drive to as Charles Drive, and and that was the street of his residence. During the heyday of his career, he was elected to the International Boxing Hall of fame in Nineteen Ninety and Bert sugar who I would consider. The one of the handful of premier boxing experts in the history to sport Burke sugar was listed as Charles as the seventh greatest heavyweight of all time, and all that will come out in. Film form. Project for him from Cam Miller and I'm very excited about that all right? Here's what the NHL was trying to do today and this I add this because it. Don't want to say. It adds a template for Major, League Baseball, or the NFL, or the NBA and follow because they're all in different stages of this, but here's what the NHL announced this afternoon. Follow along in terms of the logistics for how this might play out. It's called their return to play plan. Twenty! Four teams were returned to play for the Stanley Cup at two hub cities later in the summer. They stopped their season on. March, twenty eight. They had played eighty five percent of the regular season. The regular season it has been declared over A. Hundred, eighty nine games originally scheduled for Merch. Twelve April fourth will not be played. They will resume and pick it up with the playoffs. Twenty four teams, the top twelve in each conference based on percentage points at the time, the game stopped. Now this is all contingent on medical testing. All of that being cleared as well early June. It's expected. The teams will be permitted to return to home facilities for small group voluntary and on off ice training that the next phase, not earlier than the first half of July. Formal training camps will begin after guidance from medical and civil authorities. Then twenty four teams in two hub cities compete for the seating round robin. They split it up to conferences. There's four top seeds in each conference those four we'll play against each other in a row. Each play other once. For the seating one two three four. The other eight teams have to play a best of five series. The to hub cities now being discussed, or they will send the NHL. Chicago Columbus Dallas, Edmund. Ten Las Vegas Los Angeles Minneapolis Pittsburgh. Toronto and Vancouver. So. Each conference is assigned a hub city with you have to secure hotels arena. Practice facilities and in market transportation. Now now you start thinking, wait a minute. That's a whole lot I. It'd be one thing to do at scattered across the country. You're bringing it into two cities where the NHL will play its postseason, but you've got to figure out who tells and the Arenas Andrew transportation injure players, not the entire League, playoff teams will be sequestered, they'll be quarantine so western in those cities for as long as they are in the postseason. Again, the top four teams in each of the conferences will play like got the city. One would have Boston Tampa. Washington and Philadelphia. Each of those four would play each other in a round robin. Whoever wins it is the number one seed two, three, four same with the other conference city number two. And then everybody else plays a best of five series to advance to the first round of the playoffs. Exciting in theory complicated I, I believe that execution, but it's a plan that they had been working on for a while that they will put into place if all the medical issues and testing can be clear. I think it's safe to say for League Baseball standpoint. It is an important. Week plus for Major League Baseball and look I get. I get the talking points I. Get the imagery. The optics I get it all. Nobody wants to hear anything that's going on. Nobody wants see how they make the sausage. You just want baseball, but understand this. If you're getting worked up about this. If you're getting angry, I've already read the tweets and emails today that the victory on the venom, no deadline has been missed. This is. The negotiation phase between both sides. I'd prefer neither side say. To anybody, so nobody in the media has anything to report about it of WHO's happy and who's unhappy, but ultimately no deadline has been missed. Major League Baseball's original plan was eighty two games starting the weekend of July fourth. You know what the plan is right now. Eighty two games starting the weekend of July fourth whether you like what's coming out of the two sides whether you understand or want to understand the negotiations whether you want to compare it to the average joe out of work, none of it matters because they haven't missed their deadline. If you want to get upset. When that deadline, if and when it is passed than I will be right with you, ranting and raving, kicking and screaming. But I'm I'm sorry I just can't make my default position right now to get worked up about it because this is the. Between the two sides. And they're working in the context of knowing the season is going to have to start July the fourth one way or another straight up top of the hour. Tommy Brennaman talks a little reds baseball.

And I bring this up because I. It's one of those I. Remember exactly where I was moments, yesterday was the anniversary of May twenty fifth two thousand eight game between the reds and padres and eighteen innings and dusty an errand, harangue. And I listened to the end of that game sitting at US Bank arena, watching cyclones playoff game. They were playing the LAS. Vegas Wrangler. And the Wrangler beat the cyclones one nothing to even their killick series at one, and I was listening to the reds on my headphones, because the intrigue of how the game would end in went eighteen innings almost six hours, the reds used ten pitchers that day, the US three starting pitchers that day and lost twelve nine Adrian Gonzalez hit a game winning three run homer off Edison Volquez in the bottom of the eighteenth. It over the first twelve innings dusty had used Matt below for four and a third, then he turned to seven different relievers in ran out of pitchers, so he turned. Erin Harangue in the thirteenth, and Erin had pitched two days earlier. And Erin through four innings. In this game. No runs struck out ninety through sixty three pitches and three days later dusty, started harangue on his normal day against the pirates, so he pitched for third time in eight days he threw two hundred and thirty nine pitches in that sequence and I. I would think Erin Harangue would tell you. He was probably I. Think he would probably. Probably tell you this that he wasn't the same again. That season somewhat argue he wasn't the same again.

Gary Jeff Walker serves up the nightcap tonight after us at nine, coming up at Eight, Oh five Richard Skinner from local twelve on a variety of issues, but focused mainly on. His role as host of King of t bowling. I can't wait because he had a mustache. That time and Like the background on that as well I mentioned, today is a big day because bowling alleys can open batting cages can open and Putt Putt. Golf can open at least begin to open in the state of Ohio with that in mind I thought well. We should probably talk a little bit of bowling tonight and I've got connections in the bowling community. A couple of guys I turn to when it comes to bowling stuff. Our next guest is one of those from Coleraine Bowl. That would be todd. McGill, how are you? I'm Lance. Our you I am well I would think your your emotions today are a little mixed one. The excitement that bowling can come back and then the realization like. There's a lot of work to do. There is always a lot of work. In this business for sure, but you know it was kind of cool seeing pictures from all around towns with the bowling centers getting open, and just getting some folks back out and enjoying what they like, and you know, and and having a casual time out on the lane. And out there having fun again, so it was definitely cool to see and you know it's. It's the way it should be so my understanding, Coleraine. Bowl is going to open, but his taking kind of a a slow. Let's get this right approach. Let's get everything in order and did not open today correct. That's correct. We've got We've got several kind of key events coming up and we're. We're focusing on them and doing more controlled events and tournaments and things that I basically A. Sort of a way of looking at it if You've kind of been a theme, but We've got a tournament. Our first tournament is going to be June the seventh, said I. Call Rain On that six thirty, and that's normal Sunday sweeper. That's kind of a a pretty hot ticket in Cincinnati around we, we usually get about one hundred and eight bowlers every week. That's the Max Field and we live in filling up every week for several weeks before we had to shut her down. So. We're looking forward to getting that one back on track and we may throw in a second one a week. Just to get everybody out there a couple of times a week into the tournaments. Todd give us. In general terms just. Give us. An idea of what has to now what bowling alleys in general have to adjust to adapt to or change at this point? The Bowling Alley capacities what they are. We're allowed to have fifty percent and then make sure we maintain our social distancing they'll. You'll find plexiglass up that a lot of them in front of the fronts ask or wherever it maybe in front of the bar wherever the folks are going to talk to the employees, employees are going to be wearing their face mask. Until we're told not to. and. Make sure that you know everybody feels comfortable. We want everyone to feel comfortable coming into our bowling centers. Across the city? Because we wanted to come back. And that's kind of the fear. If they come in, and they're not happy, or they don't feel comfortable at all. They're not going to so. A lot of the bowling. Centers are going every other lane. when they come into open play, so there's always are. Leaning between you or with the tournament play, they might have something in place where there's one person on the lane, one of the bowlers area and one back in the concourse and Kinda play ready bullying and keep their distance that way. Todd you know you know this bowling community. You have your finger on the pulse of the community. Do you get a sense there is? There's an inch to do it again at the community will eventually come back and rally around the sport in this town. Absolutely There's there's a lot of talk about it every day. There was a lot of talk about it every we were down. And I mean all over the state all over the TRISTATE people messaging people calling people sitting posts out on social media that they just want to get back out on the lanes, and they just want to get out and vote with their buddies, and they WanNa bowl tournament, and they WanNa. They WANNA, go out there and compete again, and it's there and you know this. The day finally came, or we can start a little out of time and. It's pretty exciting honestly. Todd as a you're you're a connoisseur of this sport around here? I'm sure you recall King of TV bowling back in the day. Absolutely I do what what what memories or moments come to mind when I say King of TV bowling. Well I competed in several times in my younger years. Never quite made the show. I was one one spot out of making the show at one point in time. and. So I mean I was out there every Saturday and Sunday beaten up with these guys and having a little fun but I had a lot of friends that were in there, and made the TV show, and I was one of those guys in there at six thirty in the morning.

When somebody somebody got four or five months ago and send it to me, I couldn't laugh. I thought. Wow, look at you. Look at you and so am I. Understanding correctly were there were there dueling? There was an Ohio show and then a northern Kentucky where they're two different bowling shows. What was a very cable access oriented show, and the other one was on first channel nine, and I could get time on Earth Thom Brennaman on, and then on channel five for a period of time, and that was the. King of TV bowling that was the that was the main one, but the one. He was still a very good show. I mean it just. It was very Kentucky senator was. Cynical. They get over here to Super Bowl in a couple of lanes. In Kentucky but pretty much Our Show was very northern Kentucky Center so yeah. I call it the king of bowling. Light and it was fun and you were do I. Understand this correctly. You were an alternate at one point two to actually bowl on the king of TV bowling on junior star of the king, the King of TD Bowling back in the day. There was some really good young Bowlers I. Think our Home Rob. Carpenter I believe you're Rob Korea. I believe. He was a very good Bowler del lanes I could be wrong. You could ask him that. One guy named Greg Lousy and a guy named Oscar. Gold for the traveling team at Super Bowl and So what a bunch of US would do was we would go try to qualify for the for the King of TV Bowl Katie alternate for the junior year in. The same was a Great Lake Jack Moran won't. The host of. The show and when you were the alternate, you're also the score keeper. When so the shows were taped in, so I went home and I'm outside 'cause. Jacqueline is going to say my name. So awesome. To say my name. Wrong scorekeeping this week Dick Shiner. At the time you may recall and you're. Obviously there a quarterback in the US L. at one point five dipstick? Shiner Jack. The Tuesday and kind of confused my name with that so. I, tell people forever. That is beautiful. That is so Tommy Brennaman earlier was telling the story of a Vei taped at like six thirty on Sunday mornings, and the place was packed with people already drinking hugely. When did you guys tape your show? We take. But not much it was it was fairly early I was say late boring on Sunday Kennedy something lines. And I can recall item neighbor up the streets in Florence. A guy named break. Who was a time? He won a bunch of weeks in a row and I would go with a couple of other friends neighbor we go watch him, and I remember the first time he talk Popovich Just come town. Pinch host, you and I can remember going to skip death. What's getting that episode is on the King of TV Bowling Youtube. Pay I watched that episode. There you go.

You were part of building the batting cages on dixie highway? Yanni McCain and graduated from doing rear windows to being the finisher. To the Fisher drove the car that. They decide. They're going to build a batting cage back there so one day they decide to take a couple of his off the line of. The car wash. They just need some some Labor to go. Do it and said Your money your fault and so there I am having no I. Would I'm doing? It was such a hot day would porty asphalt period of time. Then you have to step both your feet into a bucket of cold water to cool them off so I ruined a perfectly good. What I tried, but whenever I drive by Janis Wash, I don't get my car wash. They always have still respect plays, and well the place the people and look to go. I actually help build that thing I'm I, and I can't see. I'm barely can change a light bulb, but I somehow. Three days summer. ASPHALT? Cage. Our. Guy Chief is listening right now and you know he's muttering under his breath. What a bunch of losers! Money you're not taking right? Now to around this out I I'm trying to remember. What is your experience at Putt? PUTT other than just playing it was there any. Is there any story behind your PUTT PUTT to complete the trifecta of openings today not to give my complete back on my life, but I was born in Cincinnati. and. Time and my dad works at airline, so we moved to new. York a couple of years. Pulse Oklahoma my fourth and fifth grade years and in the summer some PUTT PUTT was a big thing, we're talking. This is early, seventy, seventy, three, seventy, four, which now makes it sound, really old. But one of the MOMS or my mom would take to cut there in Tulsa on like one day weekday would have an all. You can play for a certain price. I mean they'd have contests today. An as tournament one you know you, only you only can make an year or tournament, and and so throughout the day we play until about one o'clock, and I can remember this I guess. My mom gave me just enough. Money you across the street to Arcelor creatures. And, then we come back and play some more. Picked up, go to baseball practice and do all over again the next week and I'm sorry, not mentioned mention is the real PUTT. These are like the orange, the orange rails like legitimate Putt Putt like TV tournaments on Saturday morning, but but. When they started doing that I kept thinking man ambush seem.

At Amelia starlight drive in it's a locally produced and Phil Movie About Baseball and teenage relationships and the effects of teen suicide. It's based on the true story of Chance Smith. Who played for Flash Baseball in Brown County The film was to open in thirty nine theaters in April, but the pandemic forced a change in plans showtime tomorrow night. And Sunday is eight forty five. Our next guest stars as the Youth Baseball Coach in the film. He's played roles in full metal jacket.

It is an honor to welcome in Matthew, Modine Matthew Lance McAlister welcome to sportstalk. Thank you so much for having me on search pleasure to be here. How did you become involved in a project like this? Well, my daily, who runs that flash baseball is white is really good taste and she suggested he hired me moving. And I read the script, and and it was just so terrific. I Love Baseball, and and so really that's all they had to say in the first couple of pages. was that it that it was about baseball and I was I was pretty much in could kick. Give me an opportunity to put put on baseball uniform and go spend some quality time with with young athletes who who always teach me about life. It is a boy. It's A. It's a powerful story powerful message, isn't it? Really is and just say it's based on a true story about the young chance. They grew up there and and and I, I don't know how how to put it in words. You know that you and I did grow up in in a time of texting, and it's one thing for you to say that somebody or you're an idiot and Gonna I'm GonNa Kick Your Butt after school or something, but with texting when you, when you put it in writing and send it to somebody's phone, it has a different impact than than. Than if if you say you know what I mean. You've actually put it in writing, and you send it to your personal device, your phone and and It it it. It carries a greater weight than than the words used to when we were in school so Teen teen suicide is is a real. Problem, and and we all have to do what we can to try to provide opportunity and and resources for young people who find who don't have somebody that can speak to them and help them through a dark period, Matthew. How much time did you spend here shooting the film? I feel like I was I was there for a couple of months, but I think it was. It was probably the only about six weeks of you know a little bit of pre-production you know getting there and getting to know the kid and and kind of you know what I call. Get in baseball shape. getting to know Mike Daily and and his family, and then wrote the screenplay and his wife is in the film does a wonderful job in the film and You know.

We didn't have a professional baseball teams, so I had to pick a team and I. When I lived in Utah and we moved to San Diego, when I was in junior high school, and I kind of became a padre fan. They had some good ballplayers then and. But Yeah I'm I'm a Yankees Fan. I Love Baseball. I did another baseball movie. That's really good about honest wagner. Yes, played for the Pittsburgh Pirates and It was called the winning teams and was television film and that when I actually got to play baseball I went out and and went. Cal ripken is a friend. And I asked him if I could go play with his farm team for the Orioles called the iron verge and. That was that was a tremendous experience. You know I was telling you off air. I had a chance last. Not An show to talk with Jake hurts men who sophomore at Sycamore High. School plays on the baseball team. He plays twelve year old child in the movie now. He told me tell me. You can confirm this. He said you helped him with acting in. He helped you with baseball true. It certainly did. Special skills, their clash, baseball and You know to get to get the players to stop thinking and and. To react in in a way that it's a longer conversation than we have time for now, but it's a great program and he's come up in that flash baseball system, and so there was some skills that I was unfamiliar with that that he and and and all the other kids taught me. To be. Better Baseball player I have to admit that I in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five I was nineteen years Old and vision quest is one of my favorite movies, and when I saw your name on the on the poster for for this I said man I wonder if we could hook up with him on sports talk. Could you take me back to that experience? What was doing vision quest like for you? Well. I was I was pretty young. I was living in New York City I moved to New York to study acting and. I was I I grew up in a surfer. You know they say Imperial Beach California and when I got to New York, all I wanted was for people to think that I was a new. Yorker, because you're not on the subway and say where you from I'm from here.

You know the way wrestling and conditioning running running. all those kids in the movie were pretty much. All of them state champions. And what I learned about that that that experience was anybody who's ever been a grappler knows. That what what you wrestling against yourself? You know you're always. You're always discovering how far you're willing to push yourself and. The extremes that you're willing to go in order to accelerate at this very difficult sport. I just enjoyed that.

So nice to see Jesse. Sarwar. We're not in a restaurant having now, right. Here, we are in the age of Covid doing a zoom conference exactly and I hope you won't mind my starting on this note when I was reading up about you I had to I had to laugh Aleph recognition that you grew up in and around drive in movie theaters. Yeah. I wish my father was alive to beat to be witnessed this resurgence of. Removing Of course. You know. Cars used to be much bigger and more comfortable. into the movies was a different kind of experience and then. You know they the gas age I think it was seventy eight when we had the gas crisis yet president and two cars started getting more. Smaller and less comfortable and A. Of course, the advent of VHS tapes in cable television DVD's were were really the death blow to the drive in theater and the land was worth more than the drive ins in the land got developed into subdivisions and shopping centers and. This magical, a childhood that I was so lucky to be a part of. All kinds of disappeared and then with Kobe. It's it's it's made a resurgence so. The sesame being the mother of invention though Oh I do have this image in my head of someone like your. Dad Running. Driving and looking at smart cars and minis. Going I don't think this is not exactly. Yeah. Who Big A. Big Part of my. My Dad used to tell me at the end of the night go around, turn the speakers off why I think that he imagined that the speaker was. Using Energy and. You're the speakers off it. So I'd go turn the speakers off in. There was nothing more exciting than going to the back rows of the drive in where? People were doing things that were had nothing to do with watching a movie. You know they were I got my sex education on the back roads of my dad's driving honestly my mom I mean we we call her a tramp with all the love in our hearts that she said to me. She goes you didn't go to watch a movie. I am so square house square are you I went to watch a movie Every now and then there was the only place I could see a film in my neck of the woods in New Jersey was at the drive it. Out Occasionally, take myself there as a kid, my parents used to just my brother and I in Arca Jonah's. And throw in the back seat and hope and usually it happened we were fall asleep at some point. Now, that was the day of bench seats. In cars. Yeah. You could easily do that and you could you could easily make out to the front seat not that you did because you went to see the movie s right bucket seats were definite detriment. Absolutely, the stick shift was even worse now now now now and in those days you put the speaker in the car. Now everybody they tune their radio, the car radio to a to a frequency to be able to listen to, which is much better sound. Something really exciting in those days back in new. Jersey of putting the speaker in the car. And leaning into it to try to catch what was being said, yes, and as you did mosquitoes came window. That's that's my most vivid. If you did a fact test drive in movie, My aunts, my answer would be mosquitoes, Ito's. At, least in our humid part of the World Jersey. ENJOY THE THAT ADVENTUROUS a life as a kid. It was unbelievable. You know because the drive ins were always way far away from a communities because you want it to be as dark as possible. You don't want to be competing with with street lamps and things like that, and so drive ins were always kind of in a very rural part of town and you know so the first drive in where I was born was. Loma Linda California and we had a drive in called the Cherry pass and of course, it was surrounded by cherry trees and watermelons, and then we moved to imperial beach down by Tijuana, we surrounded by tomatoes and cantaloupe, and then we moved to Utah and was used the different kinds of fruit trees, and so the my whole childhood it was I I have to say very sensuous. Experience of walking through those orchards in those those farms that you know in the in the winter I mean in the fall when we'd start school the smell of the rotting fruit, and then in the winter you know the bare trees in the empty empty fields and then in the spring, all of that coming to life with the blossoms of the trees and things like that. It was. You know in, you'd walk to school on your own. Of course, children don't Walk to school today. So you know people a when Leonard and our children P parents didn't think twice about their children walk a couple of miles to school. It was just it was just normal. So. So yeah, that all of that stuff was really a magical part of my childhood and in my early development and why did you move around? they were tearing the drive ins down L.. The land was just worth more than the than the drive ins were, and then those other things that I mentioned the car is getting smaller. VHS. In. Cable but you know I tell you really quickly one of the movies it really had a tremendous impact on me when we moved to Utah because I was going to school with a lot of Navajo from the from the reservation. Was a movie called little big man. And of course, what I can't think of the filmmakers name officer Pan Arthapan thank you what he did was. We'd grown up with movies about white settlers being attacked by savage Indians and in wet. What he did was a pivot, the camera to indigenous people native Americans being attacked by a savage white people, and because I was going to school with Navajo, it had a tremendous impact on my character that I felt so terrible the this is why they were living on reservations and and. It, it deeply impacted me and the chief Dan. George. In the movie who plays the real Indian chief in adopted grandfather of a Dustin Hoffman, that he called them, they call themselves human beings, the native Americans, human beings, and from that point on all I ever wanted to be was a human being. Well. How many times do you reckon you saw that or or any other film that you liked at a drive in run I think I must've watched little big man. Several. Dozen Times. No question Oh. Yeah then. They started shifting to a lot of Roger Corman Movies A. we called swinging stewardess movies that were were just softcore porn you know are rated or yet are rated movies than I guess you'd call t seventeen now there's no more are right And You know motorcycle gang movies, hells, angels on wheels. There was probably hells angels. They just put that as part of the title tag something to it right? But. Yeah the. Movies really changed, and then of course, the indoor run in Utah was with the release of a midnight cowboy which does and. Jon voight and that movie was rated X. and the Mormon. Church got really angry with us for playing x rated movie where people might see that driving by the drive in the. Is might melt out of their head if they'd see. The driving? Yes what what what people think of as now retroactively as drive in movie fodder like the Corman films out was true to a degree but is also just presented new first run movies legit movies like little. Big, man. And and midnight cowboy. A whole bunch of movie said it was wonderful also was being able to watch so many movies and being sort of a student of films and seeing. Sean Connery and a double o seven, and then seeing Sean connery a second feature Darby Gillan the little people off. The minute that that can't. Buy A man who would be king. Michael. CAINE yet. Michael. Cain and then you go oh, my God this guy is. A not just a movie star. He's a legitimate. You know he's actor he's chops and I met Sean Connery in. New. York. City. At a at an event and told them about my childhood in all those different movies and. I. Had a new best friend because doesn't often get a you know everybody just says James Bond burnside course. Him in the in the in the Canon of work that he was involved in exactly. Of course to forget what was that one that he did that weird. Space. Movies Dole. Or? Pause was. Never. Been in a subway station. When we lived in Manhattan where the big posters up for Czar Gauze air which. I actually ever saw. Shards don't seem to post nasty just. So you know why we always say he's great for crossword, Puzzles Yeah. Around Crossword Puzzles Terry useful. That I saw, they played at the drive in that was a you know we all have a something that we'd rather not people talk about Earth. When it Shanghai's I am sure he would paid well to do it. See. That's the thing in and something that I. That I appreciate very much is that to a certain degree if you're an actor you want to act and you want to work And not everything is going to be. masterful cinema it's you know sometimes it's movies and work, and if everybody else can just work. Actors can do the same thing. You know it's sometimes we just pick badly you know that it seems like it's going to be really good role in and then you get there and you realize that you're really bad fit for this character i. Didn't in Italy with Faye dunaway Jennifer. Bills. Carry my wife and I watched, I, think we might have lasted ten minutes in the move. Cut. Let's get Outta here. It was called the gamble. In Italian it was called La Partito. Silman Italy. Yeah no the the experience of making the movie was unbelievable and I gotta work with Faye. dunaway. WHO Yeah, we grew up watching her in Bonnie and Clyde and The network and you know. Take your pick an. Unbelievable and That was Jennifer. beals is no slouch. All. Evacuate you did a series with her didn't you I did it was called proof yet it was really good and A. New New executive came in to run TNT and taught what they wanted to do was change the demographic of TNT and make it for a younger audience and the the mistake. Of that kind of thinking there's there's there's other streaming platforms that are doing. The same thing is that young people jazzy millennials don't pay the cable bills. was a real error. But did always I feel like that is what happens is someone comes in and says, so everything's working I have some great ideas. Let's change it all. Everything's going great. Let me get in there and just. It, you know with all the movies that Leonard has looked at over his over his career. It's. I bet. Eighty percent of the movies you've seen let eighty percent. A high percentage. Movies could never be made today. Oh. Yeah. We obviously right now especially. Talked about this a lot and it's and. As I watch. My wife and I are old movie nuts and we watch a lot of Turner classic movies, and You Watch. DVD's and it is fascinating how a film that we never being You know either good or great or lease you know pretty good sometimes turns out to be as we remember sometimes has you know dialogue and characterizations that. WHOA hold the phone back to an audience anymore. One of those for me was my wife and I really loved the Gary Cooper movie love in the afternoon. With the. Of shoot with your name I'll be hecker I'd Heparin. Thank you. Great. Crossword Puzzles. Great on Crossword Puzzles When you watch that movie today, it's so creepy because. There's so much older than her. In is charming as he is is goofy as he is it's really inappropriate is just an old man with a girl that looks like she's seventeen eighteen years old now that was that was the Fred astaire film daddy long legs has I. Know You know? In the case log in the afternoon, it should be fair to it That criticism was levelled in the fifties. was new. Not Not with the creepy level but just that. Was Age inappropriate that flow. So they knew it then. Other than fruit trees and watching movies like that. When did you decide that you wanted to act? Well, it was I think I've told this Leonard before in a in another interview that was. So, in those days, the drive in theater manager oftentimes booked the movies that we're going to play at the theater they. Received Sixteen millimeter trailers of of what was coming out and the you know you pick what would be the first and second feature you doing. If. It was a week for. First feature. You'd want to put a Clint Eastwood Movie. 'cause. You. Knew the audience in Utah would want to see a clint. Eastwood Movie. So you put this week or with the Clint Eastwood movie and. 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. If I'm lucky I'll teach you to be a human being. And I started crying because. Nine hundred eight years before I went, I'd seen that Arthur Penn movie and they talked about being human beings that that's all I wanted. And my aunt had given me this book and now I realized that I was in the presence of a woman who had gone to Russia in studying with Constantin Stanislavsky and the circle was complete that that somehow that was all kids. Mitt and it was a it was A. You know my destiny in some way that that I should find myself in that room with that teacher. Out to maintain the restaurant job in the meantime. I did and that's where I met my wife. We're still married to this day. It's wonderful you in my parents are like those unicorns. The. Parents Mary forty five years in L. A.. That's about one hundred, six. Yeah. You carry an I think it's forty or forty one this sucks. I is our anniversary. Town. I want to study with. Almost two years on and off. We weren't supposed to audition when we were going to school and I felt that it was important to take the things that I was learning them learning at the school and apply them to to real life situations so You weren't supposed to do that. But I I took what I was learning in the class and and went to additions and saw how it worked in the real world. Eye Opening I'm sure. Yeah. Absolutely. Now. This is a question that we end up asking some frequency but. How did you learn to deal if you did with rejection? I think that my wife was very instrumental in helping me to. Understand that they weren't rejecting me personally that's the difficult thing is that you feel go into addition and they're saying no to you that they don't like you. And I think did she was the one that used the serial metaphor that you know your cornflakes and they're looking for weak checks or they're looking for charity owns and don't don't take it personally that that when you come into an audition, if there's any young actors that are listening on the on the show right now. You have to think of yourself as a problem solver that those casting directors in the director they're looking to fill. A. Deter looking for somebody to solve the problem that they have. They need someone to be able to interpret this role and and so. That's your responsibility it when you go into edition is to how do I solve the problem for you? How to help how do I help you help the yes? Yes. I've heard George Clooney say something like this is as well that that was that was his approach as well to to think of himself as a problem solver. It's brilliant advice. It's true and and being able to separate yourself is that's a real skill. You know that's a real skill for sure. Now, I the part that I don't understand. I've never gone through this I'm never trained or even attempted to be an actor is you can learn a technique. And you can learn a you know various approaches to. Calling on inner feelings, summoning emotions on demand but. By studying with the great seller Athere, you couldn't learn how to be a convincing. Leader as you. Move or how to be off convincing a Marine Corps plebe You know or any number of other things that you've had to do I mean to being a surgeon Dr. The list is vast of different kinds of characters you play and some of them call for physical transformations sell them call for very specific nary specific. Skill sets or we see allusion of skill sets A. Well, you know Stella said You should work from your imagination. So you know if you're gonNA play a murderer, obviously, we're not going to go out and kill somebody in order to understand what it is to to to be somebody who would take another person's life or harm another person. So but. I I think that this is a bit of what when we speak of reincarnation What might be the root of that is. Just as each of us. Have certain physical characteristics that you. You know a maybe resembled one of your ancestors that. Did we get these physical characteristics from within our DNA information? That's Pakistan. Genetically, and so when we're going to play somebody. You know like in the case of Gertie, let's say somebody who's been misunderstood in and. Suffering from post traumatic stress that there must be somebody in my genetic history that has gone through that kind of. Suffering in difficulty. Just as there's been somebody who step forward and spoke truth to power. The. In maybe somebody who's harmed another person maybe even killed another person so. We can look into. Our past and and ask those. Just like we have these physical characteristics reach into our genetic passed and be able to summon up those those things in the case of birdied. I I did not audition for Birdie, auditioned for the role Nicholas Cage played a Alcoa Lombardo and I never imagined myself playing. Birdie and when Alan Parker said he was going to have me play that role. I literally got down on my hands and knees and beg that everybody who had ever been. Treated like Birdie of misunderstood or was harmed by the the effects of combat. To please come and help me play that role and. I'd I'm not a religious person I'm spiritual. And I felt a rush of souls that came into me in the people who said, thank you for helping me to tell my story to tell about my personal sufferings and and it really lifted me up, carried me through the interpretation of that role. and. Then then there's just things that you say learning to be a wrestler ambition. Class. I had to go and learn how to be a wrestler that was just no way. No way around that I had to go almost a month before we began filming. LIFT WEIGHTS RUSSELL DO CONDITIONING In in spend time all those kids that were in the movie. Were state champions including Michael Shuffling. Who who played coach. From sixteen candles etcetera. And so. You just had to learn how to do it in the case of like Memphis Belle where I was playing a B seventeen pilot. My uncle was a b seventeen pilot flew seventeen. where he got shot down, almost had his right arm off his body. So I talked to him and he told me a difficulties of being a having the responsibility of of his crew as the captain of the plane, and then when we were making the movie, the real person that I was portraying Robert Morgan, he was there and he he he took me. Up in the air to go fly an airplane, and then he climbed out of the left seat and he told me to sit down and I said, what are you talking about? You'RE GONNA fly the planes this is the last God damn movie about these planes to be made my lifetime and you're going to know what you're doing. I sit down and pay attention. I climbed into the left seat of that be seventeen in fluid for I. Don't know it felt like forever that I would but wedding. Amazing experience. Yeah. Incredible. With rings US inevitably to. Full Metal Jacket. and. Which has just been reissued. I should say on wonder home video in A. New Ultra HD format ultra extra special courts for K Seven K. One hundred and fifty, seven K.. But it? Looks fantastic and it is just as old as ever. Justice in this. 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. The quality of the images would be just what they are but being able to go into that large two and a quarter by quarter negatives than I shot with with the role of flex camera. He's able to pull out information that the if you're curious about what what cameras Stanley was using or what the film set look like you can open all of autographs up and see them in unbelievable detail. I was playing with it this morning. It's it's stunning it genuinely it's absolutely stunning. They did original music and sound effects, and of course, my narration of the diary and. It's really a portrait of an artist is a young man who goes off this young boy to work with arguably one of the greatest filmmakers it's ever got behind the motion picture cameras Oh argument there. Some. Argue come up. I'll take out all comers. And I'm not an argumentative guy but there you go out of. Any Leonard is how many of Stanley's movies were dismissed when they came out whether it was the shiny at the New York City Premiere of two thousand, one space Odyssey I don. I. Heard as many as three hundred people walked out of the premier including rockets. You know a Berry Lyndon. that. People. Just he just wasn't understood or appreciated. Kind of reminds you of the stories that we hear about A. Bengo. Or Premiere of US convince keys rite of spring where there was a near riot. Adverts now yes. Well, he was there's a reason that his films endure. And that his reputation endures as well. Knock to usurp anything in your in your diary, which is so valuable but if I play Roszak tests with you and I asked you what one adjective comes to mind. When I ask you your impression Stanley. A. Well. It's the wizard of Oz I don't. It's not one word, but I can see just say Oz. Give you some leeway here? Yeah I think that he was very instrumental in creating a mystique about himself. That was was comfortable for him because he could hide behind like the wizard of Oz a this presentation of. The all powerful AUSE, you know pulling levers. Win when Dorothy and the tin man and the cowardly lion scarecrow when they need him there they're all shaking in their boots. They're all terrified as was I when I went off to work with this person everybody I met in New York City seemed to have a story about Stanley Kubrick and how he was this and he was that he had airplanes fly overs house to spray for mosquitoes. He wore a football helmet when he drove his car that. He was terrified of flying that that all of this crap that people were telling me before my wife and I went off to England to go and work with him and then when we met him, he was just this know Jewish kid from the from the Bronx who loved making movies and created a space for himself to be able to protect the integrity of his art in his process of making films that that by being in England being so far away from New York City in Los. Angeles he was able to create a that. All powerful is to be able to hide behind that that that facade. But when when toto pulls the curtain back looks an awful like your dog. He pulls the curtain back. Can you realize that he's? He's a mench that he's A. Guy That loves baseball and football and and UH loves making movies he's. Now he's a film gauge how? Film de oil boy now, the Again, I don't want to be repetitious because your your diary is so vivid. and tells us so much but I as a guy who whose recurring nightmare. In my adolescence was basic training. That was my recurring nightmare. Because as I say, I was not an outdoor person. I was a whatever the opposite of athletic unathletic yet. That's what I was. Is What? You And and watching trio's character It's just you know it has butterflies in my stomach still and. What was it like for you guys It was it was it was difficult when you when you go to work on a film you in this is in the diary in the full metal jacket diary. I say that you know you I'd done I. Think six or seven movies up to that. Point. Vision Quest Mrs so full birdy a private school in streamers that Robert Directed I think that might be it and so every every day we receive this kind of call she right and on the call sheet, there was a the scenes that you were supposed to accomplish that day and what the call sheets on cubic film our justice suggestion. What we might do that day of what could happen and Because of. Our Egos of my young fragile Ego at that point that stage of my life I thought Oh, my God we're we've been filming for weeks now and we haven't accomplished anything we we haven't. We haven't completed one call she and so I felt that this must be because of my own personal failure that I must not be delivering the goods since Stanley doesn't know what to do that. He's cast the wrong person in N. he doesn't know how to make his movie and so I was I was out in a field and feeling sorry for myself and. I see Stanley driving. Coming toward me in a jeep and one of the army jeeps and I tried to hide in the grass so that he wouldn't see me. Drove right up to me and he said, Hey, jump in your ride the set and I said no no, it's okay. Openness and not a walk because what's the matter with you? And I got really emotional and and I said the. You know I I feel like I. Don't know what I'm doing down the feel like, I don't know how to play this part and he characteristically pulled on his beard. He turned the jeep off and and he said to me he said look I don't want you to play anything I just want you to be yourself. And I'M Sure. I, just be myself and. Then he drove away and I wrote in my diary. I, said, I knew that the important part of his sentence was to be that one of the most difficult things to be comfortable with in life is who you are what your genius. Gifts that you have and when I do know that when we become come comfortable and confident in who we are as individuals. Life get so much easier and some artists they they realize. Discover their personal genius have confidence in in their art because so I think had that I think that Vincent Van Gogh I think he was frustrated that he couldn't sell any of his. Feel that he was pretty confident by the brush strokes in the in the Palette that he created in the artwork that he created. He was pretty confident with. With who he was artist in Stanley Kubrick was one of those people it was really comfortable and confident in his art and that that sentence. Be Yourself to be yourself. It's why Li Army got job with being the drill instructor. He was the technical advisor on the film. He wasn't playing a drum instructor. He was Stanley couldn't not usually are me as technically visor because he was he he he was very comfortable being who he who he is who you know in this case he was he's. God rest his soul. While While well so Drinking what you're saying it's that that's that's pretty heavy duty stuff. Especially, given the the results in that film, which is so memorable. A. When you work with other directors after that and you work with sit now like some prominent directors but directors who also had somewhat outside is reputations work. With Oliver Stone You were a couple of Times Robert Altman. Tell us what those experiences were like. Well I can't compare the experience working with cubic with any of those people I guess the closest comes Robert. Altman because. We did those two films together shortcuts a terrific scene with Julianne Moore. I end. Streamers, and then we did a play together in London a Resurrection Blues Arthur Miller wrote in. So Bob and I had a special friendship in relationship working relationship. Work with Christopher Nolan and. As you mentioned Oliver Stone. They're all pretty pretty big characters, pretty pretty dynamic individuals and You know it. I. Think it was in Italian who told me that she said you know. People artists everybody makes love. But we all do it a little bit differently. So. I think that's what I have to say about all these directors I've worked with they. They all make love but they all do it a little bit differently. Yes indeed. All the was somebody who was who was noted for sometimes throwing stuff along see what stuck. Yeah. Would you agree with that? Absolutely? Yeah absolutely. He How he directed he he'd come in and he'd say Okay Modine, what are you GonNa do and you'd say like this is what I'm trying to do that I was thinking I would sit here and we do this do that okay good and if I was doing the same the Jesse Okay Jesse if Modine GonNa do that what what would you do and you would say okay, good. Maybe he would make some adjustments. In, the then asked his director of photography how best to shoot it in give some suggestions in, and then you'd make make film but I think that with Altman I would compare him to a composer. In you look at all the different actors that Robert Altman worked within an how many actress just loved working with Robert Altman because he he he gave you that freedom to say this is what I think that I'm doing the scene. He gave a lot of freedom to the actor. So why say I think of him as a conductor? It conductors job is not to be the lead violinist the. or The percussionist did that the the conductor does is pick. Those people who are going to play those musical instruments and it's those musicians responsibility to go learn the song, interpret the music, and then come and be a part of the orchestra. In this case, the cast and the director he doesn't tell you how to play the violin. He says. Play the violent you know he makes a gesture in the violent comes up in any makes gestures with his hands to say a little bit softer a little bit louder you. You know when we watch conductors, you see how they use their bodies, the physicality of their body to inspire the musicians that they're working with and I think that's very much how Robert Altman was was that he was like a a conductor. Poet. person. Beautiful. There again there people were first off shortcuts may have been the first time. I ever saw Julianne Moore. And very early in her career I think it might have been one of her first movies if not. Moving, I could she was New York, city theater actor yeah, and soap opera your some TV back there. Yeah. but what a knockout want an introduction? Yes, she's. She's amazing in that scene. That's an example of the way that it was scripted. I was supposed to be following her around the room chasing her demanding that she give me an explanation about. This extramarital affair that she had had, and so I came in and Bob said, what are you GonNa do Modine and I said, Bob, you know what I know it says that I'm chasing her around the room and pestering her what I think that they've had this conversation a half dozen times and tonight is the night that the I'm going to get an answer from my wife. Did she cheat on? Did she have this have sex with this man and so I said I'm Gonna I'm GonNa sit down in my chair I'm going to have my evening cocktail and I'm not gonNa Chase her around. Physically I'm gonNA chase her around with my words and you know the things that I'm saying Bob says Oh that's really interesting. Does that work for you Julianne Julianne said Yeah that doesn't make any difference to me I mean I'm not GonNa Change my physical actions and he said okay good and I think that he was happy about it because he was he didn't know how he would have been really complicated to film the way that was scripted in by having me anchored in my chair during that scene, it made it easier for him to be able to to film it and tell the story. Now. You've already enjoyed in recent years success on a streaming show. Newest medium, stranger things but you hopped on that bandwagon a long long time ago you've been on some of the most prominent cable TV movies I'm thinking back on twenty years or more you know and the band played on. And what the death man heard and and. Well. Series like weeds and proof. You've really at one time. It was considered a step down to do television. Oh Absolutely N. and I I would have been the first person to say like. I'm not doing TV. I'm a movie star. But the but then that's that's the reality though I mean, that's exactly what was it was is you snobbish thing you wanted to work your way out of you? Go into television but. In the case I think the first one I did was and the band played on and I had an agent then really our full edlow motto. We started the William Morris Agency went to ICM. I think he finished up William Morris but he was amazing and of course, it was the eighties and Was it eighties when it was made her ninety. Nine Ninety one maybe reacting. Three or was it that late? Ninety three? You've made too many movies man to me. Too much. But you know like everybody in our industry and people in the arts were so. Violently in horrendously impacted by HIV AIDS. That story needed to be told. that. We needed to make people understand that. This disease didn't have a sexual preference that. This would impact. People with intervening intravenous drug use that this would impact hemophiliacs this would you know this? Is say a disease does not have sexual preference and it doesn't. It doesn't have a political agenda at diseases disease and we did with that film everything we could to help people to understand that and the politics of of of A. It's it's actually very. Relevant in this moment today of covid in the band played on you play epidemiologists. From this. From the Centers for Disease Control. Relevant. So. end because as I say that I don't think anybody in the arts wasn't impacted personally through the loss of a friend, the loss of a Lubber. because of this, this horrible disease. It was important. That's why there's so many people in that film whether it was Richard Gere Steve Martin. Nor? A Lily Tomlin that there was so many people that came on board to make that film because we had all been impacted by by by this disease in we wanted to tell that story. Sure. Other names pop out as I look at your list here. Tell me about Albert Finney. Albert Finney Man I. I was doing full metal jacket when I a Allen Peculiar who you know besides producing to kill him walking bird leads. So piece choice all the president's men. So I was so excited that Alan Parker wanted to work with me on this This play in Albert Finney was doing orphans. Written by Lyle Kessler in London at the time I went to see it and he wanted me to consider playing the brother tree and. I went to see the play and I knew that I could I could chill this role I could I could I mean murder the role and Albert Finney was in it and he I mean. You know. Albert Finney. He's probably one of the most wonderful actress I ever had the pleasure of working with is incredibly generous. Smart demanding you know that he wanted the best of the people that he was working with and he didn't do it in an aggressive or a condescending kind of way he did it with with encouragement and love and So when when when I got cast in the film and and we we've filmed in Queens. At that studio in Queens it was it was just an unbelievable experience as an as was working with Kevin Anderson and. The. The whole whole company of people that were involved in the making of a movie I loved working with. Albert Finney so much that when I heard that he was doing a the Browning version, I threw my hat in the ring just just to have the opportunity to work with him. I I ask because I'm a huge fan and he's always been a very private individuals and doesn't do publicity interviews. So you don't have a sense of who he is, which is the way he wants it. He wants you to just come free of baggage to every performance of his and accept that that he gives you and he does your he gives you the goods. Was He married to We just talked about her in love in the afternoon as you know, he just just two lovers. I can't come in I don't know. And he would never comment that was that was the thing that was a beauty of him that he was not somebody who kissed in told. I appreciate those people but also I wanNA know. WanNa know another name I have to ask you about this James Earl. Jones. You what they call two hander essentially with him yet what the deaf man heard. James Earl Jones. We discovered that I wasn't alone being having a learning differences they. Are dyslexic and and. James he said that he'd really become an actor because he had to memorize. A everything that he did in order he was in school to take a test and The work that he had to go and and I think also stammered, and so you know when you think of somebody like him so accomplished as an actress such a situ power collector, I mean the. That was one of the really powerful movies I'd seen as a young boy was the the great white hope. and. He I mean he's just. Somebody that was so such a humid such, a full human being. A, you know I've seen him on Broadway. On Broadway and I I genuinely. Yeah he's he's the. He's just lovely. You know I I don't know how to had to pay tim bigger picture than lovely covers so much know besides his intelligence and his passion and his conviction to. The social justice you know beaten. He's and. Quite something. A. Lot of ground literally and figuratively. Yeah. Of. Matthew you've been so patient giving us. Wonderful wonderful insights and and we're so grateful to you. Thank you Leonard Thank you Jesse. And hopefully, next time we see it won't be on a computer. That'd be nice. Maybe, mobile will bring us and free desserts. Inside joke a thank you so much.

We have a lot of different guest on a lot of different subjects between now and nine o'clock, and then it's gambling fin with your reality check. Let's go straight out of the chute with early off hitter tonight, favorite of the show front of the show second. Second. Round pick of the reds back in nineteen, eighty managed for years in the reds, minor league system than the Yankees System whatever twenty one hundred games. He's in the International League Hall of fame. He went in at two thousand fourteen. He managed Your Cincinnati. Reds in two, thousand, three, two, thousand and five is always a pleasure to spend a few minutes with Dave. Miley how are you? My good friend. Good to hear your voice and me on. Argue well everybody good. Great what about you we're? We're hanging in. Their kids are going a little. Stir crazy, but we're good. I thought of you last night because you had sent a text in the middle of the show I had. I was talking with Rick Green last night, who made his Major League debut with the reds? In June of ninety nine, it was his only major league appearance. He pitched five and two thirds. Innings gave up three runs. He never got another shot in the major leagues. You Happen to be listening. You recommended the red sign him. You had him at Triple A.. You got to tell him he was coming up. What what do you remember about grade in that moment I'm tell you what he One of the best things about AAA managers you know televised debate leagues and he was. Granted access. We call the Minneapolis and also can. Be saw on Toledo Tigers, and then He was with the Milwaukee as his last year as a free agent and You know me and Buck always thought highly. Sudden reached out to To Jim Bodenham. News are indirectly time and they're recommended them. They signed him and did a job force and it was great that he got a chance to go. Especially, what Cincinnati boy as you said when you and you're probably so many stories over the years, but that moment when you're able to see the look on their face when you tell them, they are being called up. That's gotta be really cool. No doubt and I heard a little bit, and it gets to hold a conversation with him last night, but I. I do remember. when we told them on the road in Norfolk and evidently couldn't get a hold of his wife. Lady the BALLPARK and I. Looked at bucket. Grant Jackson Cohen. said. Well, thank you. She calling me for and then. You know I didn't want to tell her over the phone, but now she gave us. Rick. And it all worked out, but Yeah, that's definitely the best part of you know AAA stuff. You can talk to the guy that AAA manager You know having to release. Guys was the worst, but sending guys especially at first time like you. I remember Dan, balloons and guys like that of the world that they're going to the big leagues or something. To look on the face and. Coming through. You I earlier in the week. Ahead Eric Davis on the show. We were talking about the the decade the all decade team. The fans voted on. You you played with Eric all the way back in one thousand, nine, hundred one with you gene. You played within through the system, did did you? Could you see his his greatness unfolding as you were a teammate of his? Our I tell you what he? Probably wanted best athletes I have ever seen her plate with He. You know I don't know if they're told you. The originally signed shortstop and kind of like the Reggie Sanders story where. He made on how many areas and they moved in the Senate filled, and that was the year that that I the first year that I played in eighty one and. You know just the adjustment. He made out there I mean it just came so easy for them and You know like we talked to. It's probably been over the winter that last time I talked Eric but You know just he probably could have done anything. He wanted on high school. Basketball football didn't matter and Larry and was drafted him out of La and And you know that just tells you. How bad scouting back in the day. Before him! Side you mentioned Aaron. Boone and you had him with the reds, did you? Did you ever think that get the at the time? That guy could be a major league manager someday. What do you think of him? becoming a manager. Where you would, what is bloodline? You Know I. Never Given much thought that. That first of all aid money, getting that side of it and You know with the blood line with the. Grandfather Ray Boone and Bob and you know Brett playing, and all that kind of like the bell situation. Those guys! They were just around baseball so many times. Peres's guys like that. I thought Aaron did a terrific job. Obviously New York's not. That it's not the most easiest place to manage I'm sure but you know I think it helps them going into that espn side of it where you know the the communication and different things like that, but Aaron probably could have done anything. He wanted her baseball general manager, or whatever so very happy form talking little reds baseball with. The former reds manager member of the International League, Hall of Fame Whenever Twenty One hundred games in the minor leagues during his time. You also I forgot about this. I went back and it was looking this up. You had dion for about Twenty Game Stretch it Louisville in two thousand and one, and he was just odd, he'll almost four hundred for you and a twenty game stretch and got the call up. What was it like watching Dion? The baseball player right right He. You know we. We had a little past I guess it was around. I guess it was ninety three after after the Yankees and all that we were in Atlanta, and I got to talk to him for a long time, and hadn't seen him for a while and then Jim Jim signed him as a free agent and You Know He. He did twenty game stretch like he said he had most I. Remember about the is watching this guy go if it's not from first to third, but if ever watching them hit a triple, just amazing. But he I mean he had he had the tools and you know what he was able to do. On the football and baseball side of it and not miss a beat was. Just terrific, but he. Did you? Are you mentioned scouting and between nineteen, eighty, five and eighty six those Denver teams. You guys have Eric Davis Barry Larkin, Chris Sabo. Paulo Neo Rob Dibble. Some guy named Tracy Jones I duNno, whatever happened here, but. How about that collection of talented Denver in those years? Oh my gosh. Unbelievable they have you have just a physician players. At that time. and. That was one of 'em that I think we had five catches on that roster. At one time, it was alaniz nicely in and Keri McGrath and Joe Oliver Myself and getting anybody. Heck. Most time I got playing in catching I played who I believe. That's. The thing that you could be around. Just watch those guys that. They came in. You know like you said with Barry and. You know it was a lot of fun to watch and You know that was a that was a great summer. Those guys were very unique and it was great to watch him. Go on and help reg, do some. Great things and win the world series. What was it like as manager? The Cincinnati reds come to the ballpark every day and knowing you could write somebody like Sean Casey into the lineup. One of my favorites yeah. It was great. You know the toughest part. Probably. There was nothing about it I. Guess It was you know Bob who like I really had a lot of respect for is the one that that about doing was one that was fired when they brought me up as the interim at first, and we still had Aaron on the team, and just the way that Aaron handle it was you know it's something that I think about whenever you know when you brought up his name? That's the first thing he doesn't mind. It could have been you know could have been an awkward situation you know. We ended up trading them to the Yankees as a matter of fact and. I think that's the area that they. Run the beat the Red Sox gave a different. Governors. Out there you quick story whenever I would give him a day off? You know. He'd never shut up in the dugout and I'm like. I tell Jelly and and. You know mark various gadgets like this guy killing here. Anymore so in the National League on the double switches, so it'd be about the fifth or sixth anything like my kitchen change case gets you. Whatever and goes. Miles at that had the day off I. See man. Not Anymore okay. Out Danny Graves. That's That's beautiful. Hey, it is so great to hear voice I. I got such a big kick last night out of you text in the middle of the interview with.

Yeah, right in the middle of our interview last night with Rick Green. and Rick was talking about Dave and it was Dave who so I'm an recommended the red sign even and was pitching well at triple eight eight year in got the call and rick spoke glowingly of of Dave Dave sends me texts. Hey, say hi to him before he's he's done. Done still ahead, we'll talk. After the bottom of our.

We talked with a Sycamore High School player. Who's in the movie last night tonight? We're GONNA talk with Matthew Modine. WHO HIS ROLE IN VISION? Question Nineteen Eighty Five I love that movie Big Fan of Matthew Modine will ask him about the movie chance and get caught up on some headlines as well as We get up and running six nineteen. Thanks for being here. It's Arnelle carrier sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet seven hundred WWL W. Six, twenty seven seven hundred wwl wrol. Carriers sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet Lands, mcallister. Thanks for being here tonight. If you were here last night if you missed the rick, green, that's available in podcast form. Rick Green was a first round pick in the nineteen ninety-two drafted the Tigers taking sixteenth overall wound up in the red system, and in ninety nine was pitching well, and he got called up to the big leagues and he pitched. Pitched in one game in relief, five and two thirds innings three runs, and he was never heard from again. They rights had to send him back with the roster move. He never made it back to the big leagues and I asked him last night about making it to the big leagues pitching well in his one and only appearance, and then never getting another chance, the fact of getting to the to the big leagues far outweighed. Fact that I didn't have a long illustrious ten. Fully vested career. That's that's the bottom line Would I've liked to have ten years in the Big League? I would have liked to have a half a season in the big league, but when you look back at the fact that I'm only one of nineteen thousand, plus that have ever lived young boys, Dream, and played a sport like a game for my profession, and and made unbelievable friendships, and traveled the world to Cuba and Spain and Canada and just done a lot of. Of things that a lot of people have done I lived two or three life times already at forty nine years old, or even when I retired at thirty one that most people just don't get to do so talk about being extremely blessed and very very fortunate Lucky and proud and and just just a happy I was able to get there. Even for one game Rick Green last night on Sports Talk May, and now that was a that was good stuff last night. Easier Classic Cup of Coffee Story a guy who gets what opportunity then that's it but consider hundred and fifty plus years of baseball. Less than twenty thousand players have had a chance to play a major league game. He did it. He pitched well and the the perspective. Really really cool up next a tomorrow. Night is premier. The movie chance at Amelia. Amelia starlight drive in. It's a story. It's got a local story attached to it and we'll talk with Matthew Modine about that.

His wife is really good taste and she suggested that he hire me moving. And I read the script, and and it was just so terrific I love baseball, and and so really that's all they had to say. In the first couple of pages was that that it was about baseball and I was I was pretty much in could check give me an opportunity to put put on baseball uniform and go and spend some great quality time with with young athletes who who always teach me about like.

Don't know how how put it in words. You know that you and I did grow up in a in a time of texting, and it's one thing for you to say that somebody or you're an idiot, and I'm GonNa Kick Your Butt after school or something, but with with texting. When you, when you put it in writing and send it to somebody's phone, it has a different impact than than Than if if you say you know what I mean. You've actually put it in writing, and you've sent it to your personal device, your phone and and It it. It carries a greater weight than than the word used to when we were in school. So you change change? Suicide is a real. Problem and We all have to do what we can to try to provide opportunity and and resources for young people who find them, so we don't have somebody that can speak to them and help them through a dark period, Matthew.

Borough was drafted. April twenty third. How would you describe the demand for the Joe Borough Jersey since that night? Well to be honest with you. It started about a week before that we were taking pre orders for season and really didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. We ordered a couple of hundred thinking well. We older, too many of these are people really going to be buying into this? You know, and then you know we. We were closed down for a couple of weeks. We opened up last Tuesday morning, and it was like Christmas morning we had twenty boxes or burrow jerseys, waiting for us and by Wednesday. They were just about all gone mad. Old Man I think everybody's frame of reference is back to Curson Palmer. Do you have a rely recollection of anything like this when Carson was drafted? Not even close, you know. Carson, was heisman trophy winner first round pick but he wasn't Jodhpur. Phenomenon I don't I. Don't really understand it fully, but the build up around Joe Borough. Compared to Carson Palmer. It's night and day. Thrill media is much much bigger so as you mentioned you are now. You're open right now. Is that correct? We are yes. We opened our doors. Turn the lights back on last Tuesday morning. We have all the safety measures in place, plexiglass masks, or required by anybody coming in, so we've been having walking customer guys last week. Yeah, do you? Do you have the borough jerseys in stock or do you have to order them at this point? We're still okay if you have if you're three XL. Or if you're a toddler or you side, we have those in stock. Still every other size. We ran out of like I said before, probably in a day or so we went through a couple of hundred, so we actually have more on order. They are telling us at Nike that we should expect him hopefully by the middle of June. Give me an idea of what say for an adult size something that I would wear. What is the cost of? Of Joe. Borough Jersey there eighty, nine, ninety nine. There's three different Nike Jersey that they make this is the cheaper of the three and really. Nike's had a manufacturing issue because of covid nineteen. They've had to shut down a lot of their facilities where they make these jerseys so really. They're only able to do the cheaper one four now. They told us during the season. They should have more hopefully. Knock on wood. capabilities to make all the others. I just checked my twitter feed and I have a question from listener. Only one of my listeners can have this question I will toss it to you. You see Chris wants to know. He has a Curson Palmer Jersey. Can he bring it in? Have you strip the Palmer off in so borough in yesterday? I had a feeling that might come up. Yeah, yes, we have done that before. We can certainly do that just happened. Get in touch with us. you know the great things about the Bengals? They love recycling numbers. You know it's not just. You from Rudy Dot in the center dent then Jeremy, Hill. That might be more of a cost effective way of doing the the Borough Jersey even buying new. Absolutely talking about Joe Borough Jersey. Mania, that has unfolding were at the epicenter of all of it with Eric Cook from Cook Sporting goods on Fourth Street downtown. Let me. Let me switch over to the reds. For a second. They had built up so much momentum in the offseason with so many signings did that translate into reds? Fans wanting reds jerseys this off season. You know I have a feeling it would. That's one of the negative things, and of course we have to keep everything perspective with everything going on in the world, but we were really looking forward to a bigger red season than we've had in a lot of years, and because we were shut down for a couple of months, we haven't seen it. you know which is a shame, but again I think whenever they do. Start to play ball again. I think there will be that excitement again so I think everybody in the city is open for that question related to the reds Shogo Akiyama. If someone wants a Shogo Jersey, does the back have shogo or does it have? Well I hope it has ocoee. The. Not. You can go the other way, too. That's beautiful. I love the flexibility.

Oh. Follow up on the Jersey talking with Erik Cook from Cook Sporting. Goods. Casey and I put together this list earlier today of Jerseys. He got in some way shape or form birthday Christmas. You name it that those players there there's like a curse that those players then moved on for whatever reason to another team he had. Carson Palmer and then Carson was gone. Had Sean Casey Never Forget the day I had to tell. Casey that Sean Casey was traded to the pirates, left-handed pitcher David Williams that went that Jersey. We had a Jeff Clevinger Jersey and then he was gone. We got a T J JERSEY. Then he was gone. He's a big Miami Heat Fan. Hey Chris Bosh. He got Chris Bosh and then Chris Bosh developed the blood disorder and was done. Playing basketball had an Adam Dunn Jersey. He Got Traded Brandon Phillips Jersey he got traded. He had Lebron Lebron left in free agency from the cavaliers. He had a Kevin. Durant Kevin Durant la left. Okay see he had dwayne. Wade who left the heat and then came back the only one he joked he has had over the years that the player has remained. Is His guy ally manning. His favorite quarterback! I was reading who was it was Rick Reilly. Googling stuff on on Jersey sales today and I found Rick Reilly, pc written want to say about a decade ago on the rules of Jerseys and he had written wearing. Jersey used to be for kids now. People with actual jobs are wearing them. The wrote at six. It's adorable at thirty six deplorable women and jerseys fine, but dude you're really going to. You're going out with another man's name on your back to you have no male pride. I've got a couple of jerseys I've got I've gone to royal. Jersey going to king. Griffey Junior Mariners Jersey have an old Sammy Sosa Cubs Jersey I have my baseball. Heaven Jersey with my name on the back like wearing that out. But, he listed his Jersey rules one. He says you may not wear Jersey past the age of twenty nine. Well that seems rather harsh He says the exceptions a you're immediately related to the person whose name is on the back or be. You are the person whose name is on the back Jersey rule number two. You may not wear a Jersey without a shirt underneath it especially. NBA Jerseys. Number Four. You may not under any circumstances where a Jersey and a hat. I'm trying to think of I've done that I probably have a Jersey remember five. You may not wear a Jersey with your name on it if you didn't wear it on a real team wants. If. I weren't on my the Power Jacks Jack Billingham's team that was. Real as a team as it gets for me. I think that means I would pass the rule. Be Able to do. It rolled over sixty said you made our a Jersey of player who's been gone from your team for more than a year unless that player is a hall of Famer, I do get a kick out of. It's like a sport for me on Sundays at Paul. Brown Stadium Ke keeping track of the the odd bengals juries like the Ron Dougans. or or the Eric Cruiser or like? Wow, you really went with the RAW DOUGANS! Jersey in you still got it a Jersey rule number seven. If you have a nose, tackle body, you must wear a nose tackles jersey. Jersey number eight absolutely no cutesy wrong colored jerseys, no pink, no camouflage. Number nine? No wearing NBA shorts with your NBA Jersey at anytime. Ten No wearing your Jersey anywhere but a to the stadium or be at home. Well I violated that. If you qualify under all edicts. Then you must sign these waivers before donning. Jersey Jersey Waiver, a by wearing a jersey. You are waiving your rights to any sexual activity for the evening. No woman in history has ever said ooh. That guy wearing the Jersey of another man. That's hot. Jersey, waiver be by wearing a jersey. You are waiving any semblance of coolest well I disputed that I I have. The last time I wore one. What no more one on what would have been opening day around here? We're the Bronson Arroyo Jersey because remember we were. We were attending opening day, and there was an opening day, but we were acting. It was to have all the cool memories, and and I that was double violation because we're the bronze Row Jersey reds at that day. That from Rick Reilly was man. That's almost you know what there's should probably be a new one because I think he wrote that about. A about a decade or so ago. I would think the the growth of Jersey sales from almost a decade ago have been off the charts I mentioned earlier. We'll get into this. Maybe a little bit later on there is no. There was a proposal today. Actually there was a response today from the players to the owners. Nothing beyond that, but I would agree with Bob Nightingale in USA Today today who who wrote this paragraph about owners and players right now in major league baseball. He wrote simply stopping. Enough already he wrote. There are thirty six million Americans who filed for unemployment the past two months. Do you think they really care who is right or who is wrong? As owners and players debate, the economics of playing baseball without fans, the last thing anyone can stomach is listening to billionaires and millionaires. Arguing over money. There was a report today. I think it was John. Hayman of CBS sports that on the players side of this there was there was great angst that. Information was getting out. That was the information that the owners wanted out that was making. The players look bad. In a perfect world, both sides we go behind closed doors and keep quiet and we wouldn't have to hear any of this of how the sausage is made. It doesn't work that way because it's all about negotiations. Unfortunately, it's all about leverage and each side ultimately is looking for leverage, and how this is presented publicly all right, hang tight. We'll get the latest on the Cincinnati News of the day. WHO Better turn to than Pat Brennan from the acquirer, and we are locked and loaded in the eight o'clock hour as well so we'd best get a check on news and curiosities Arnelle, carrier sportstalk, presented by Kelsey Chevrolet seven hundred wliw.

Bank arena is the Cincinnati. Cyclones captured the Kelly Cup. We'll talk with their play by play voice, John Hamill and then the head coach. Chuck Weber who wants to Kelly cups in his four years here in, Cincinnati, he's actually here in Cincinnati and and has been here for awhile behind that coming up just after eight o'clock news, but the story of the the day is related to FC Cincinnati the announcement of the official hiring of your stom- Today as the club's new head coach will be formally introduced on a online video call tomorrow morning at ten am is forty seven years old the resume impressive and here to shed more light on that and talk FC. Cincinnati has been way too long and I'm very excited to welcome in from the inquire. CINCINNATI DOT COM. He is all over all things FC Cincinnati. That would be Pat Brennan. How are you? Land some great. Your introduction is entirely too kind. It has been too long what it is great. It is great especially in these times. Cowboys Fan in my correct. I I am I correct in the pronunciation Yup stom- Yup. Right got it. Now to me that you're the you're the expert so I defer to you, but this isn't some just ordinary. Joe Hiring. This is a significant big time. Hiring is not. Yeah because one lance that would have turned heads across the globe today, and maybe tomorrow is the news cycle Kinda circulates eastern part of the world, but This is a guy that was a starter on arguably. The Best Club soccer team and Manchester United during their ninety eight ninety nine season one of the best clubs soccer teams in the modern era and he wasn't just. There for the ride he was a key player. He was a starter and he's playing career alone. makes him someone that is globally note worthy I think in in the global soccer community and he's had some. This is his first coaching job I think it's fair to say he's had mixed success, but he's had mixed success. In some of the toughest most competitive leagues in the world did pretty well for himself in the second division in England, which some people argue including myself is Skillful League in the world, but the one of one of the toughest, if not the top leagues in the world because you're fighting to get into that English premier down so. He did really well one season when he was managing a club called reading see. In that second division England so Yeah, this is he was. He was considered one of the one of the best defender in the game in his era, which is not that long ago? So this is a modern player. As you said, he's only forty seven years old and Yeah, this one would have turned heads all over the globe today a pet the. The the other thing that jumps out to me. There are some guys with the big name who'll just ride on their big name to me. I look at the resume and I. See Player I see. He spent some time as a scout. He was an assistant. He's been the top guy that's. That's a well rounded resume that to me jumps out. Is that fair? Yeah one hundred percent I mean Lance. I'm sure you've seen this in the news release, but. He had a coaching stint for a an academy team at albeit a academy, one of the biggest soccer clubs in the world, so I'm sure that team quite prominent in its you know age division, and for its among its peers, but he was a youth coach, and he and he doubts that as something. He's proud of his professional development. So yeah, this is this is a guy who did not just. Kind of appear at the top levels of the game because of his big name from his playing days. He really I think put his put his nose to the grindstone and works his way up and to be named obviously to be named head Coaches Cincinnati he would have earned that, but he's. He's. I think it's definitely fair to say he. He is He's earned everything. He's gotten in the in the coaching. Aspect of his career, and that includes his job today and I also think it's important to note he hasn't. He hasn't used his name kind of in the same vein Lance. He hasn't used his name to try to get into like one of these huge huge global giant soccer clubs. They've all been like you know reading. At C that's not exactly a household name. in these in this part of the world and you know even the the quote unquote big club. He coached in the Netherlands. That was a great accomplishment in that country, but these aren't necessarily global brand, so I think he takes on attainable job and He's good at them, so they're to me. That's suggests the also knows. Maybe maybe he knows his limitations as well and knows what he's capable of succeeding at which is you know that might sound? Simplistic but some people don't have that self awareness in the game. That brandon checking in from the choir since dot com talking about FC Cincinnati, they announced at the club's new head coach today. He'll be official introduced to the media tomorrow we'll. We'll see him on zoom tomorrow win. Here's the big question. When might he actually be here in able to get hands on with his new club? Really good question, my answer to you is I. Don't have a firm answer on that yet, but when you look at. The situation with the pandemic and some of the government rules and regulations closed borders. that. He's going to be facing. I mean let me let me I mean that's all part of this right now. And that for some people suggest today that, because maybe they announced the higher now because they've found a window or some way to get him into the country, so they can start the immigration process if that's true great i. don't I have to think probably not the case just because hot. How serious depend damage is being treated and most of the world's Nancy so. I think that You know. Challenge? I can tell I could tell him her answer yes. Looks. Just. Put It in perspective, you know. There were three players, three new players that FC Cincinnati acquired in the off season, and who they are exactly. It doesn't really matter and people. Will Your Cardio One Adrian right gets in FC Cincinnati. Was All not just see Cincinnati curbs route about less or having Longer than usual they were dealing with longer than usual processing times and timelines the immigration process just because. You know this isn't a political comment about I think it's was largely seen just because of the regime. That's Running our country right now, and that is what it is but that was so `immigration was already a longer process of these clubs accustomed to, and that was before the pants. Okay, so now you have to paint. Borders closed not just here in the places where you know in the in the part of the world where you off is coming from, too, so if it like, if if like people theorized today. If there's a window a way to get him in now to start the process awesome. where? That's possible at this time, so it could be a while, and it could be a situation, you know it's Kinda. Doubly concerning because it seems like mls has thrown all its eggs into this Orlando plan. Some people have talked about relocating all the teams to Orlando to resume practice like real practice, and maybe some form of competitive games, and if that planning gets off the ground land, it could start as early as June though we're talking less than two weeks out from that, so it's hard to imagine yourself being able to work. In the full managerial capacity, even in the best of circumstances, just considering the time line, he might be up against, so it could be a while but I think FC Cincinnati just like they said when they set out on this head coaching search, you know this is not about a short term, fix? This is a look. This is about a plan. Plan for their future so I think they have an eye to twenty twenty, one as much and maybe more as they do. Have as they have an IDA twenty twenty here now Pat Brennan checking in from the Acquire Cincinnati. Dot Com speaking of plans for the future any sense of what the future now might hold for current interim coach Yawn demet. You're you're bringing the heat tonight. Really good. Question I asked You I asked her about that last week. At the time, it had been approached with the assistance in the club I would assume so some progress towards some end has been made in the week since that interview took place with your camper general manager But it's a it's a really interesting situation now. Because Johan has been a team player club, first mentality put Cincinnati. Number one on the priority list in seemingly every situation he's been confronted with. Guided the team through a really ugly periods. That really wasn't. Any he really can't take too much blame for what happened on the field last year, and yet he he chose to preside over their head coach and. took some bumps and scrapes. That came with that so. That he really values this guy. You talk about prospects you know on the playing side, but this was a prospect for the coaching side and someone they want to develop. You know. As time has passed and she's been. Essentially you know there's really. Blunt way to say he's been looked. He's been passed over for the place now. In the meantime he's built up a heck of a little resume for himself so I. Don't know that he wouldn't have elsewhere my guesses. His inclination would be to want to stay around with FC Cincinnati but I think you had some saying that, too. Because just like in baseball just like in football in soccer you want to. It's not a it's. It doesn't mean you don't want isn't trustworthy. Yours a guy he just yup might want him to leave. Just because doesn't own, and it's as simple as that and he wants to bring in his guys. He's already bringing in one existent Any off just might want to have his speech around it by guys, and that's that's. That's a fair new head coach in any country. In the world so to determine about Yawns Ama. I think Cincinnati thrilled to find a way to keep him around. I think he would want to be around, but Yeah. This is a little bit different than when Ron hired and. Yuan was touted as maybe the next generation of head coach Cincinnati because who rod really quickly. Next generation is here with Yop. And I think the distant future, maybe even quite as clear for yawns as it was yesterday great catching up with you one more for you got about a minute, so do a Do a reset for us if you consider it. I know we were a couple of games into this thing when things were shut down, but from a roster standpoint, the additions locadia and others now GM in place coach in place is your sense that this club is on a solid path with a map that is taking them in the right direction. Yeah absolutely. I think they've got a lot of the. They've got more of the right players. they definitely have the general manager in place, and he's able to use his direct networks. Put some other things in place. In terms of players, now toys with the head coach, and hopefully this one goes better than last time, but there's a clear a clear plan I thought. Cincinnati already looked at light years ahead of where they were in terms of the play in the first two games. The club was. And when it was but I, think I think without question and this is the trade. Move in the right direction lance. A It is so cool to talk. Talk FC Cincinnati with the appreciate your making the time good to hear your voice, stay safe and hoping talk again soon. Absolutely thanks so much land. Talk to you again.

You got it as you hear that and you think back, Gimme the Gimme, the emotions of just a spectacular run. What what stands out about that team in that run to you? You, know the things that jumped out. There were three things. I thought I was the resiliency of the team six times postseason Lance. It was winter. Go home, and and they punched him in the mouth sticks. you know eight times in that? In that playoffs they had come from behind wins and four times with most goals. You know your your second point that I had there was. they played hard when it mattered the most you know the. We're GONNA talk about it here. Just a minute with the reading series, but big played nine teams and fourteen days, and they've won eight of nine so. You're you're pretty good there. And then of course the goaltending everybody saw Robert Meyer in the lights, bright and He was great. Don't get me wrong, but journey Smith in the first round. Put on one of the best goaltending performances I ever see so. Those were the three big points I took out of everything trane John Give me some. Kind of Flash, the memories of the fans back in time to some of the the names the impact guys on that team that you think of instantly when you think of that season of that accomplishment. Oh golly! For sure the cats into the team you know he was great. During the regular season scoring round up with nine goals in the post, season and stuff since sproat who? was just spectacular with eleven goals in the postseason, and then not Jimmy Kilpatrick who've been good all season Brett, Robinson, gets the game winner, and then you go on on the back side. You know with Cashman. Who played most of the year in the American League now? He's the assistant coach with the Washington capitals. Jason Joseph He's been eliminated by the cyclones when he was in Toledo not always in seven, and then in Vegas. No wait. I guess if you can't beat him. You better join them. With two goalies.

We're GONNA be joined coming up in our next segment by Chuck Weber, the coach of that team John You sent me a a lot of notes leading up to this which I cannot thank you enough for and one that jumped out to me a Michael Jordan aspect of this.

It's because we're coming in MJ. You know you know good luck, you guys. You hear playing very quickly. Guys win tonight what we go out and and didn't do so well.

Tell me about the impact. He had on that team. 'cause man he. He had a magic time. He won one hundred and seventy seven games in four years here in forty five playoff games when he was here. He was spectacular the biggest. Capita can give chop. He was he was terrific with managing the people. He's one of the festive value raiders of talent that I've ever been around any sports and when when it comes, I worked with sparky with both Becker with huggins and John. Harbaugh I put him in that echelon. Both both for being on. The floor as well as being behind the scenes I mean just spectacular. I can't say enough. Good things I think the thing that media jumps out the most. You gotta remember. We had checks here for four seasons was really closer to five because in an E C H L season, their seventy two games in four years. He coached seventy one play. Man, unbelievable before.

I wonder as you think back ten years ago tonight, the the sense of pride and accomplishment, and how magical that run was just just an amazing run wasn't. Was Yeah especially with us being the fifth seed in the playoffs, so it wasn't like the year in a await were basically the the leader right out of the gate to the finish line and you know. We went through so much adversity I think we went through almost forty five players during the regular season and with everything else going on, and you know we again. We were cheesy. One every what I probably hammered, so we want every even game the first two rows. Put put ourselves down three nothing against writing and and then came back, and then quick turnaround flute up Boise, Idaho. Wouldn't that would four games to one that was that was the easiest of all the series. Swell! Take take me back to the conference finals, and you delivered a speech. The just win a period speech. Tell me about that, yeah! I don't really think it was so much the speeches. The guys were a good spot, and it was it was. We had nothing to lose We were down three. You know we were in every game didn't get a bounce hereabouts there. It was kind of a weird. Because reading was actually the fifth see, but reading I. Think was the six or seven They had upset a couple of higher seats as well and We went down and you know I think just the you know. Our energy levels the first Toronto to catch up with us a little bit. Cinco de Mayo happens and. Most people at her. The urban legend is true. Our boys when I got drunk. And we had we had three days off or three forties off. Actually you could. Bon Jovi was using writings arenas Hassan check. System so we played three games, and then we've had I was like four days off so Cinco de Maya. The boys were like Hey. One glass of Danner have a couple of drinks I'm like that's fine. And they came in the next day reeking of like Ben Gay and big red trying to hide it. And everything else. Fortunately our guys out there, guys. and. We started chipping away. Yeah, we I just I said. Hey, you know a couple of people that are you get mad? You know they're drinking. It's the conference finals and guys were down three in, and you know a big speech or getting angry, trying to pull events Lombardi or something like that. It's not gonNA work and. Guys you know and we need to win a period know we're not going to win four games in the first minute of game for a period I think. Cam told me I. Think the remaining twelve periods. We were ten to kind of saying that we just started chipping away. We had a couple of tough lineup. Decisions some guy. It just wasn't working for you. Especially one of our guys, so I sat him, and that was kind of I. Think the guys in the locker room, or she's one of our leading scores and guys like Oh. Wow, chuck's really well. Sit early scores to try to win this and get whatever it takes, and he actually sat all four games that we came back. Played All five games in the finals, and I think their second or third leading scored in the whole playoffs, ready missiles sports, those are the four games, and we had a couple of hard talks and early on, and it just wasn't working I was like. Hey, you're not going tonight game four. He's just looked at me and I was like yeah, and then game five. He okay like no. You're not going tonight either. then. He realized he wasn't playing the rest of the series and he came after Game Seventies. Like Hey, I understand. And you know I'm you're if you got? If you need me and game when I'm like you're playing a game? Wow, well, you know. And they were all went from there shook. What did it mean you? You win it on home ice in front of thirteen, thousand, four, hundred, eighty three. What did it mean to do it there in and your sense of what it meant to the fans that night? It was unbelievable, especially going through it just two years earlier, you know in two thousand, eight, seeing the crowds, and you know the and stuff that we had for that for that Round Against Vegas To have that huge crowd come in and one of the things. We had some great crowds during the regular season. You know, ray ray hair are owner and Kristen and the whole front office had done a great job. You know and and John had done great with promoting the teams through his. You know with with him with his job and. It was just one of those. They just kept pouring in people pouring in and pouring in and especially when we went up to what late when Brett Robinson took the shot in, and everyone starts chanting. We want the cup, and then it started going. We want the cup again. You, you been in many different cities over the years. Is it fair to say that the city of Cincinnati holds a very special place in your heart it does you know my first head coaching job A lot of hockey over those four years. You know I take a lot of pride. In the standpoint, we went from my first year in two thousand six, never player. New Franchise. We were just starting up again. you know we had the brand name, but we have the team yet. You know so you know. When when ray brought the end. We feel that first year we lost in the division finals. Then we win it. We're losing the conference finals, and then we win it again. and then Jeez know three of the next four coaches fall played for me, skull the. For Orlando, Matt McDonald won a championship with me in A. Great Hanau with Mattie Thomas Coach against. Mattie for decades and you know so just the standpoint that the team has been so successful now. You know that's fourteen fifteen year stretch. I think they've only made me miss the playoffs one year. Or two years, and you know to win a cup I you know I think if you're GONNA look down. The history of Cincinnati pro sport is probably one of the most successful runs here over a decade and a half in Cincinnati history check I got about a minute.

Message You on facebook today to tell you about this anniversary. Were you aware this was the anniversary of your first Major League home run? I was not. you know. One would be. You know I I can remember it pretty well because I don't up to the plate I'm not sure how I got into the game. We were up eight four replaced replace Joe in the seventh inning looked it up. Okay, and all the close to bunt, yes. Out with the three and one. Down Valleys Grandma's and he didn't have the gun on and I said all right I know I miss? The science stepped out. Look back down to Alex. he went through the signs again. No, but all right. I'm probably going to get fined for this, but I'm swinging. And Years later Johnny Bench told me he said you can thank me for your first home run. How's that? He said well spark button. Sparking we're up eight to four kid hit. Wow, Leno, and then that was a pretty historical game because I say. We went on a pretty good run after that. In fact, you did from that point forward. You One forty one of your next fifty games. How about that? That's pretty impressive. I, know we put at least separated. It was an unbelievable run. I think. We had a couple of ten win streaks in there and just. Made it so fun. You know that was my first year, so not knowing what to expect. Or how did this team really was? There seemed to be a lot of pressure on that year because they had one in seventy, and they didn't win and seventy two seventy, three got beat the division. With the mets and now. Everybody was starting to say I. It's the big red machine, but they haven't won it yet. So you know that started just relaxing, everybody and just incredible run from there on out and Doug, not only a special moment, because it was your first major. League home, but your family was there that not right. You, know they. They came up. Be Miles south so they would come up to quite a few games and. There were so many things blake year when people say. What was your highlight of your career or your first year? We'll good night. You know you get cut. Bring Your College team three years later. You're in the big leagues. Your I hit you in the locker room with so many superstars and then. Golly I. It's hard to really put. In the exact time Texas exactly how fabulous everything was I'm so fortunate to be there. At the right time Doug I also I listened to that I found that game on Youtube today I listen to it and you were the star of the game, so I was. It was funny because you you. You sounded so young and so nervous talking with Nuxie in the post game. What a moment! That must've been well. You know those guys I've watched one of the kid growing. Into, the game, and then all of a sudden. You're the guy sitting in the dugout with Joe Nuxhall. I mean. If you listen to the broadcast the home run, he was more excited. I think than anybody. Yes, yes, and then s you get to know Joe you realize. Wow, that's how special guy he was not only was a great player and admired by so many people but I. Don't know of anybody that has a better name throughout Cincinnati history than Joe Nutso. To think about it, you're you're twenty four at the time you're from Washington. You're playing on a team that becomes the big red machine. What what a moment in your life. Nobody has built that bad. What. So much. So much fun with and but you know the great thing about it is anywhere you go and people say you're part of the big red machine without even thinking they can the starting lineup and I. There's not a whole lot of ball clubs that have people that remember the starting lineup. Except for the ones you know when their local fans but shoot, everybody can tell you who was on that team. They were like Rockstar it just so fun to be around. Catch everybody up before I. Let you run and manage great catching up with you. What are what are you up to these days? What keeps you busy well? I've been Dimple Bank here Lexington for twenty two years of course, but like everybody else just trying to stay healthy.

Them today from social distancing, but you know my older daughter doing really well taken care of the House fixing up stuff and do a little fishing golfing and just can't wait to give a big hug a lot of my buddies that I haven't seen for a while no question.

Is that big red machine back to back? World series titles won a gold glove with the mets this date. Riverfront Stadium Nineteen seventy five. He homered off Tom Hall and he was exactly right because I, listening to the broadcast I heard the moment that count went to three, and why he had tried to bunt earlier in the at Bat, and eventually took off the side of the fact. He tells the story was it was Johnny. Who told Sparky let the kid hit? And he did and homer the the first of his major league career, he would go on to hit six more in his major league career total of seven home runs. That was really cool. We'll take our final time out head down the stretch. Try to squeeze in a couple of more notes on this date in reds, history, darnall carrier sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet Seven Hundred W. and. The music sets us on our way on this date in reds history to wrap things up. We go back to nineteen forty six.

The players did in taxi cabs. Then stay over and bust home to Cincinnati that courtesy of red leg journal, which is my source for most of this that I loved that book one thousand nine hundred.

Dodger's went on to win nineteen to one at ebbets field, nineteen consecutive batters reached in the first inning. Joe nuxhall pitched the final three innings, allowing no runs that was his second major league appearance eight years after his first appearance at the age of fifteen. And come to think of it, he debuted in eighteen nothing game. His second appearance was in nineteen one game this they nineteen, sixty three Jim, Maloney ties a team record for strikeouts nine innings with sixteen.

At one point, he won twenty three games that year, striking out two hundred and sixty five in two hundred and fifty days this date, one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five, as we mentioned with Doug Flynn. The reds trailed Tom, sieber three nothing at Riverfront. They rallied to win four or eleven to four. They were twenty and twenty entering the game.

I know i mentioned a couple of shows my last episode which are all so good and here are a couple more nailed it double trouble. It's on netflix. It's a spinoff series from the very popular show nailed it. This one has teams of two competing to recreate elaborate. Baked treats for a chance to win ten thousand dollars. This is a great show for your kids. It's a welcome escape from your weekly grind. If you like baking like laugh this is a great show for you. The devil you know me on vice uncovers. The proliferation of online colts in america through the investigation of cult leader sherry j. schreiner who can pass the series about colts. I know that. I can't so must put on your watch lists this weekend. The you know me and the day sports stood still on. Hbo is a documentary about the effects of the covid. Nineteen pandemic on pro baseball basketball and football. It reminds me of the san diego chargers player that interviewed last fall. Who talked about how much his team was doing to protect the players in their own house. So i cannot recommend this enough this episodes great. I asked comedian. Podcast host heather mcdonald to review operation varsity blues the college admissions scandal now streaming on not flex which documents the twenty nineteen college admissions bribery scandal in the united states and is based on recorded conversations from the fbi investigation. This documentary actually has reenactments including the actor. Matthew modine playing the part of rick singer. I can't even tell you how many tax i've had this week going. This is insane because all this extra information that i promise you you have not heard before and especially if you're someone who has listen every podcast read every article about the scandal so it's a must watch operation varsity blues the college emission scandal now streaming on that flex and then i asked rachel weintrob. Who is an award. Winning producer and chief creative consultant a creative force the breadth of expertise in daytime television. Come on. She talks about eight seasons as a producer for the view on abc as co executive producer. The gayle king show for own the people's court rolonda of different shows. I asked her. What is it really like behind the scenes of daytime television so here. We go operation versity blues the college admission scandal is now streaming on fox. Chronicles the rise and fall of rick singer. The one time high school basketball coach turned college. Admissions adviser turn outright fraudster. Who orchestrated the entire operation. This documentary draws on fbi recordings of conversations between rick singer and his clients dramatized in reenactments featuring unknown actors as the parents and matthew. Modine a singer. The reenactments are interspersed with interviews with former state or colleagues investigators and lawyers all of which add up to a critique of the college prep industry higher education the us and an entire class of entitled parents heather mcdonald. You have been watching. You've been reading every development in this case since it began. Welcome to the show. Well thank you for having me yes. I've been obsessed for so many reasons. And i absolutely loved the movie. I thought they did such a great job in just explaining. I i understood it but even i learned stuff that i didn't totally grasped you know the way they portrayed it in the movie. It really made it clear of how was done and also just the sort of different levels of the parents like some of the parents did struggle a little bit with the morality not lot but a little and then others didn't struggle at all. So i thought that was of interesting to. What did you think about the reenactments. Did it help or hinder this telling the story. I loved that they did it that way. I thought i was sitting down for documentary so i was kind of pleasantly surprised to see it acted out with just snippets of the real people Like on a news story like talking about their billion dollar business or up they see the actual person and i loved seeing the beautiful homes. I think one of the homes was my friend. Howard lights place. Malibu rocky ed. Beautiful like going to recognize some of these location I thought matthew modine perfectly cast. And you know. And i i. I love that they use the actual Dialogue that was taped conversations from the fbi. So all of it. It was just fascinating so the reason why wreck was caught was because of former client of his rudy meredith treated information on a scam to lessen the punishment or he would receive for his unrelated security charges. Once he was approached by the feds he became a cooperative informant. He called all of his clients under the guise. That has foundation was getting audited in order to get them to incriminate themselves. If you were one of the parents you get a call from rick singer. And he's like heads up. I'm being indicted. It's not that big of a deal. Do you crap your pants. Yes i would think. I would not crop my pants but i also think there's people that may not have known to crop their pants You now thinking. Not knowing that i think they knew that what they did was wrong and not cool but i don't think they thought that somehow they could go to prison for it. It was interesting which people did really start crapping their pants they were the lawyers and some of the other people that You know it wasn't the the hot pocket girl. She didn't seem to freak out as much as like the actual people that built businesses in new. So you knew that. They really knew what they were doing was wrong. So rick zinger took donations from parents in order to get their kids in schools. Donations ranged from three hundred to five hundred thousand dollars and the schools included. Georgetown both in college georgia tech. Usc ucla and berkley. You're a graduate of usc. They mentioned in the series that us sailing takes twelve percent of applicants. How did it feel to be an ucla usc. Allom have your alma mater. Talked about in this series. I mean i don't like it. I'm really sad that that all happened. Because you know when i went there and i i entered as a freshman in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight it. It was this place that was really a lot of southern california kids. It was generations of kids whose parents went their uncle. Went there and you filled out alumni. And if you didn't that was fine too and i even have a friend and her father was a prominent doctor in pasadena and he had seven daughter. She's one of seven dollars and he said to his daughters growing up. You can only go to usc. Because chances are you'll meet your husband. And i want you to stay in southern california near me. So it really. It just wasn't. It was a certain type of kid in person that went. I mean i had several friends that came from the east coast but that was where it got that university of spoiled kids thick But it wasn't like people were getting in there that didn't deserve to get in because quite frankly it was exc overly hard to get it. And if you didn't get in you could go to a jc or maybe there was this marymount college people went to that was like a private two year. And then you could transfer if you really wanted to go there it just let it wasn't like this unforeseeable thing that could happen and so what i think happened is i think so. Many people still continue to apply As as they always had. But once the st wanted to be in those magazines they kept upping the requirements making it a more prestigious school and then these kids that really did have great grades. They all wanted it. And that is why it was only the twelve percent. But one thing i will say I would keep hearing every year. That i go to football games do you. Can you believe how hard it is to get it now or kids are never gonna get in. Our kids are never get in. And i'm like yeah you know. What are you need. Like a four seven four eight but i look around and southern california newport looking that i had only seen so i was like really all these girls have a four point. Eight right and now it could make sense libyan. Jay didn't have a four point. Eight and these girls look like libya and so you wonder how many people have been doing it in the last twenty five years. That didn't get caught. Well let's talk about a strategy so he targeted the more niche sports like sailing or water polo because no one was to look there versus basketball or football. He used donna heino. Who was the senior associate. Athletic director at usc. She became the gatekeeper. Between the admissions department and the athletic department she was pocketing. Twenty thousand dollars. A month from rick singer when they were working together because she was marketing these students as athletic recruits and he took advantage of the fact that the emissions department and the athletic department did actually communicate so the admissions department took the word of coaches regarding their rosters and the recruits. And this is why he targeted coaches and athletic directors in his scheme. What do you think of the strategy. I mean i think it was kind of a brilliant strategy because these coaches were able to make this extra money. Their teams weren't really compromise. Because these kids would never get on the t. They would never take a spot from someone that they really needed on the team but they were taking spots from just regular students with good grades would deserve to go that then were rejected so lori. Loughlin and moss. No sense sent photos. Abella and olympia on rowing machines to rick singer which he used to get them into. Usc as cox wins the cox sentence on the crew team and complicating matters. Was that their daughter. Olivia was on her youtube channel and could talk about nothing more than how much she was blessed to begin an education all because she hated school that dinner in and then also moscow being a dick when he went to Marymount and challenged the counselor right and then counselor had said to dawn at usc. Hey these two girls but except they. They're not rowers and And so that he that he came down and was like why. Are you trying to fuck up. Our chances to go to usc like you probably was like god. We paid you still much money a year. We paid us thirty thousand year for the school. Now you're gonna screw it up like stay out of it dick and then the counselors. Oh god and so that. I think And so in it all like you gotta know. There's been some fights between lori loughlin bossa like you were the astle who couldn't control your temper right because essentially that kind of alerted. sc donna. they'll however of course they weren't really found out except that that guy with in trouble and he turned them over. But you're right. That i never got in trouble for whatever is thing was a white collar crime stockbroker thing this probably still be going on and you know and it was just all word of mouth of just rich people. You know you're sitting. You're having a coupla Glass of wine with your friend and she's just like oh my kids not going to get anywhere and it's just so depressing because they're you know dutta a tie and then someone's like look you guys do well. You know i'm telling you you can kick and gotta essay Thousand yeah bet. Three hundred million exactly so three hundred thousand is gonna get you visiting your kid at sc signal your front the alumni center hanging out the football games. They don't go far. They find your husband there. Keep them close. I mean it was so much about the parrots and it was interesting that they didn't want to you know they're like oh my kid get no. They'd be furious. They'd be embarrassed. So it's really kinda sad because it's like fake. They were raising kids. It's like they were still the shit. Kerr said you know We'll felicity daughter would have gotten into the school sheet applied for but rick told felicity that her daughter didn't have the grades to get in. How pissed her you. If you're felicity hof huffman's daughter watching this docu. series documentary. Yeah that part was sort of interesting. I remember reading about that before and Yes but it still. It's still was really gross if you know if that was what. She was told by a counselor than she'd go. Okay well you know we. We all applied for schools. You try to your your safety school the one that you could probably get into and then you reach and so a normal mother would go headquarters to head. It's gonna be a it's going to be challenged you for you to get into your dream school. So let's figure out a couple of other schools that you might like Now so so. But i think she handled it all correctly in just admitting her guilt saying she was sorry. I mean she's already on a new sitcom coming out well. I'm not surprised me so. She handled it correctly for sure. The best way you could. Rick singer exploited the standardized testing system in order to get his clients extra time so that the students had a better advantage or even some cases had the exam taken for them. You have kids. Your oldest is getting ready this year to apply to college. How did you feel having the story play out over this last year and most certainly in this documentary the how much does it fire you up given that your son has been going through this whole process us. Well you know. My daughter went through the whole process. And she did take the act and the sat and she was kind of in that position where she the school you know. She was in that middle position where her grades weren't so good enough to go to the place that she really would have loved hoban but then she felt like god. I didn't have to work this hard to get into this place. I could have worked a little less still got into this place so but with drake By other son. My son Yeah he was all prepared to take the act and the sat but then with kobe did they could take it at now. I think it's going to be gone forever may be But in in coming down to the whole process that everything it just I knew that people lied about saying they had learning disabilities to get extra time. And i had people tell me. No all you do is go to the doctor. Have you had your son tested yet there's nothing and the once on that. I did have tested in the third grade. They said don't he's fine. And i'm like oh he's not battles enough that he gets an extra time for the. Sat's they're like no he doesn't i think that's the worst part is lying to saying that you have a learning disability for extra time. I think that's like the biggest crime. And i'm i'm glad that's being exposed in general. Do you think the colleges at benefited from the scandal. Because if rich people would go to these lengths to get their kids in the school then this must be worth it Gap probably probably. It's people that much more aware that mature but cou to say your kid got in and you didn't you singer but i also think it's going to help give normal schools. A little more of a push like there is still really good education series. Don't need because. I think you'd hear about this in the last ten years. But how you had you know ten honors classes and a four point seven and it felt like will. No one's getting into college but there are all these other colleges throughout the country. that don't require. You know a four point eight. You know that you could get in with a three three. You can get in being a normal person with a couple activities. You didn't have to kill yourself for four years and you still have a you still. The opportunity to go to college may not be a scholarship. May not be ivy league but you you have the right to a four year education. You can get in. So i asked my friend jackie. She had a son that graduated last year from sage which was one of the schools that had parents that were part of this and i asked her if he her son had said that the kids that were going to the children of the parents that were involved in the scandal if they had suffered socially and she said no. Because it's almost like the balls and the kids courts now because the parents were feeling so bad about what had happened and how the story had come out that they are basically like carte blanche like. Would you want a luxury car. Do you wanna throw parties so some of those kids through like over the top parties. They would take people on trips so the kids were like. Oh i wanna be friends with so and so because they're having these great parties so they didn't really suffer socially and that one of the kids who had apparent that was indicted. Actually is going to school right now. A very good school. They transferred and they're in. She reported to me like a top sorority. So are you surprised that the kids have not suffered socially. Do you think it's a good thing. Those people are fine. What they with their parents did. They all must come from the same kana point of view like money buys you know money can buy anything which is sad actually not that i wanted them to suffer but i thought that they would have so. That's actually kind of surprising. And i heard no word of divorces. But i do hear that one of them one of the move to la to get outta oc because they were felt so ostracized the parent and one of the women has just been in hiding. So what's your advice to any of the parents that were busted. How would you handle that. I need if it was me. I mean i you know. I would felicity huffman at. I would say yeah. I'm totally ashamed. I'm sorry i would have done like a facebook post. I don't know i would. I would just spend like you know i just. I knew my child had the grades. But i knew the switzer dream school in this was presented to me and i and i didn't really think about the ramifications of like how it was shooting other people i mean. I joked that it was the biggest white on white crime. There was because the people that were really furious. Were like you know. Other privilege people Like the kids that did go to honors. Classes did have coaches did take the sat prep courses but still had never met singer and didn't get in. Those were the ones that were mad. Other kids were like. I'm not surprised. Rich kids get everything they want like. They weren't shot. They were like over it. It was like the other kids. You know who's the real winner in this documentary. Is it matthew. Modine twig yes. The rig was great Yeah it's it's. It's interesting. Like i wanted to know if you know is like did at everybody. That sentence have they all done their time yet. Are some people still waiting to go. Some people are still waiting to go mixing still waiting to go But apparently the sentencings were anywhere between. Let me just double check on. The six fifty people were indicted all the participating parties who pled guilty were sentenced to anywhere between two weeks and seven months and many of them have not even served yet. So there we go. Yeah oh looming over you. It's a suck any li- any last thoughts on irish operation varsity blues the college emission scandal on net flicks. I mean i think to people that are have kids that are entering highschool. Just just chill. Let this be a lesson that it's like it's not worth it. And i don't think that the alumni situation matters as far as finding a job anymore if you're a successful person if your kid graduates from college and in this day and age you're going to be able to help them make some connections and hopefully get a job whether they go to a state school or whatever so let that go and had her kid go to the school. That's right for them. They're going to be feel comfortable. They don't they should be the dumbest one in the room. You know and and also i mean you wanting kids fed was he's like same. I got into schools. And i never was stressed one day because he didn't take a million dollars plus darn where she went will try to little harder to saying like you know. These kids work their mice. Think these kids at all these preparatory classes and then never even dutch take the sat cove it or they had these big sports and they didn't get to play them for a whole year. I mean it sucks and it's like there needs to be a level that they're still like happy and healthy and having some fun 'cause they have the rest of their life to be overly stressed out and you know they should just build a school and and And have the parents be proud. Wherever that is the bigger picture. It is about bragging. It is about brag for the parents for sure for sure. Okay so everybody can listen to your show. Juicy scoop with heather mcdonald everywhere.

And when i heard she lived in new way what am i mean we have. I think when i could sit there and talk to each other about our lives over equally fascinated while you're working daytime tv. And i feel like i'm in daytime reality tv. You're just in in. You know that's my. That's my thing i mean. I got to television. Because i'm a people junkie stint at cbs this morning. Because you know for the love of the alcan. But i don't love news. I love current events. But i'm a people junkie so i i love reality. Tv it's almost. That's the thing about clubhouse that i love like eating all of these people are responsible for those people and you're meeting people who are responsible for daytime that you love so it's really cool like the first reality. Tv show that you fell in love with all my god. I mean the people's court technically as the first reality tv show other than that family. The via pat allowance allowed as they were the original reality. Does the sound of the people's court opening and the sound of doug llewellyn spoi- still haunt your dreams. What does but you know. It's so funny. Like i was in the reincarnation. And then i got like the scripture don don don and you know bathour wrote the scripts and fellow founder were cast it. And then you know meeting stu billard and it was unbelievable. A working for them. And then you know finding the litigants. It was bananas and it was the first job. We're actually like made some money. And i remember walking out run walking out. I ran out so like thirty. Four th street opposite madison square garden and i called my parents and i said oh my god. I'm getting paid a thousand dollars a week and my father's like you could buy your own ticket stop. Lowered are those people you know. The people who used to get cast on the show. I used to the cases made site is the judge. Made me look stupid. And the thing was with those people you know they would get in front of the charge. They be positive that they were correct. They were right and they so passionate about it. And that's why they always crazy and i think with any court shows aren't you look at. That's what happens. You know like judge. Judy are set up. You know marijuana leon. I'm such a fan of her like the judge people's for the executive producer. David scott. Who is there there are now was the boss that brought reading the people square from rwanda so he still of air. It's a beautiful life. You know where cheapies the life if you can gather research unbelievable. Well i love that. What about rolonda best thing. That came out of it. So much came out of. But i mean we're still friends rwanda to watch mostly because in new york disturbed journalist spell onto grad columbia journalism. She's a field journalist. So what came out of that. I mean some of my friends and mentors to this day. I mean everybody has their nightmare story. If i show actually worked on when i got hired i was the travel coordinator and they would say what airline. I'd say she w way they would say. How do you spell that. And i know i swear to god i wouldn't have to. I would have to You know fedex the plane tickets and i would say what's your address at. They would save po box. Let's say we can't fed ex to appeal. Let your street address. That's the Sunny doubt trailer park the third trailer on the right. I mean that's what was going on. Dan relondo was like really really smart like she was like hyper educated. So one died. I got to be like my i. I was creative. And the first shall we did was about scammers and all of a sudden like relondo was questioned on the set and they said we scan your producers. Everything we said was a lie. I mean sheila's serious brings everybody into her office and she starts like caring about script through. It was like you will never hurt again. Congress will still this but that was staring like that was not fun. So i remember that and To the state. I'm so meticulous. Because she was such a good writer. Yeah and i bet these that against like a psychopathic semester. Yeah a bad memory. That's learning wesson. How did you end up on the view because you started the week. That elisabeth hasselbeck started. And you're there. You were there until the week. That president obama cami air audrey jones produced president now garlic and that was at the they let they let everybody on the staff city ordinance. It was amazing and one thing i learned. That's i don't ever pet the secret service. Dogs don't ever do that. Obviously the elevator the sip-it service and laws and it was funny by dependent. I started a week. That elizabeth started. And i had to follow her. I was like failed producing her at her hotel when she got named and they played survivor and that was amazing. And how did i get that job. You don't just get a job at the view back at the time. You had like audition basically so you went to meet bill gaddi. Add you with bill getting alexandra coward you know. She goes by dusty. And you know you need you know. A buick was not like a normal injury. Saw all about you and you know. How do you get along with people. Five hosts to have any p. supervising director slate. Are you people person and they get you at the time. 'cause you know everybody knows bills not there anymore but at the time it was like you get this probationary period this audition period where they're gonna audition you. Basically for a few months ago at the end of like a few months like do. I have the job yet while eight years later i mean i assume by the job but you know they don't just hire people it was like you had to really like show your stuff and thank god. I got hired in the two people after he got hired under the people at the view like a lot of them will die. If if you like. I have found several their twenty two years. Eighteen years many of the producers now like dear friends like thank god. They're the best at what they do like they. They will never go anywhere else. Say bear they are showed. That show would not be the show without them. They're phenomenal like jamie dana. would you like. They've been there a crazy long time. And you know they. Just they have nails out To every incarnation like they have been there You know they're just amazing. It was the best. It was a great job but what was interesting about the view was it was really the first show that i remember where there were women talking about their political opinions. So when you were there what was how is it. How is it set up to. Each host have their own producer because he really was fast moving show where they would talk about what was going on in the news. They did not only do. They not have her producer. They didn't have thrown the systems at the view. That's the lupus. This very amazing. Bill gatty show like i mean he when he left. The show was never the same it. I think everybody knows that. When i got there. It was a narrative star joy. Hassled barbara all right so five. They all shared one assistant. Enough time It was donna. And i forgot he proceeded shore damn oppose blakely. And you used to go in the morning and jason kornblau put together this list. He's still there. He put together a list of all the potential hot topics and you know got like four in the morning and put together a huge list and you know they run on options and nobody gave away their opinions of the meeting. Grassley say something to say. And that's what ends up on. Tv you know emeritus whining within brighter to kinda right down. The it'd be out moderating how she's the mistake way. And what does that now and it was really like this very precise system in a went that way through every came whenever guest host. The show is always put together the same way. I don't know what goes on there now. But for eight years i was there. That's how it went You know obviously certain people had certain political things. But you know you remember. When the show wasn't powered sets vault as the political landscape changed but I remember a time where. That's where i got my news and i think a lot of the people got their news from the view but it was a really ingenious kind of thing it really did change the way like what can how many derivatives are are that. Show the view the real talk. That shoe the kitchen that this that at that this I mean that format that that multi host panel really just did change daytime television. So when you when you add to the to the mix rosie were you at all concerned that this is going to become about one person and not be unsolvable because she was a big personality. Okay not only was. I not concern. I wish problem and i was home on maternity. I was on waiting to have a baby maternity waiting to have a baby call. I was home on maternity leave and in my bed in all my friends were flying. The year they're going to the daytime time edwin angeles. I remember she said to the director. The camera on me right or is that what happened. You probably remember as. She made her announcement that she was not retarded and all of the study. There's a crawl on cnn or something special arnold as joining the viewers soco's brucie. Starting seven weeks. Later and i did not want to miss a thing so i had that baby. In seven months later i was backs. Were and we'll say worried. No i wasn't worried but you know i went back to work and like the shit got real very fast for sure. I mean the vibe was different. It was it was different. Age been documented. It was it was definitely different for sure. She had her. You know she had her way of doing. It wasn't a problem for me. The cana problem when it came a problem for everybody around you know it was not enjoyable on the crew did not want to go to. The christmas party was not enjoyable. When you know people were very unhappy like it wasn't cool so Yeah the ship was shook up was shaken up and that was not fun. It wasn't fun and it wasn't that i didn't like her but did not like the environment you know. It went from this very happy place to now. What's going to happen now. all my guard. So were you back from maternity leave. When elizabeth and rosie had their epic fight back maternity leave when she started. Because i not want to miss anything at i was. I was in my office on that. Half the watching this like everybody else was and you see like people can't see spending is literally your jaws opening your weight and what i say. I was literally watching it like everybody was watching. It and i was like spinning watching it literally spinning any any good What's ones who people are talking like. Who's not gonna do. That was unlike some vantage full act. I remember she was very aggravated over split screen but it was very very very upsetting whereas you know it's your show at your house on people are upsetting your house. It's just and it's such a close knit group of people. What do you remember about that. They're watching it. I just remember thinking these two are never gonna talk again. I about like this is at like because there was a period of time where it did seem like they were actually connecting. It was great as if you were to see because you knew that elizabeth had such a different set of values than rosy did and they were connecting as parents. And that i remember rosie had spent time at. No elizabeth has spent time at rosie's house had done this whole thing about. Oh we were in. The we were in the craft room together and then to see them fall apart. I just i think it was kind of indicative of the new way that was ushered in where people started to believe that it was impossible to be friends with somebody who had a totally different political view. Ariza that's a really good point and yet remember. Rosie made such a concerted effort to brain. Harare it after what the friendship that such a point that you just i really was They like the. I really like rossall political fight about people who didn't have the same point of view politically. You're right that's a really good point of view. Yeah that's a good point and sometimes i'm sorry Worried that what's making it difficult for the view and for other shows than that space is that i don't know if people really want to hear somebody else's different political view anymore. I think that shell will go on as long as they wanted to. Man we'll be is. What is the best people i've ever met. I'm in you know. Joy right delays fantastic still. She's always going to do her thing and You got maggot back in stare. Who else is on the show. Why would i rebound very well. Just you know they. They throw people an of a bar. I like i like i got. I want sunny johnson. I love her. How can they now remember. Sonny awesome like. I think she's fantastic and i think she could have a roadshow log. Does i love her. I love sunny haas. I do do you have an opinion on her. I think she's amazing. I think you no. I think the shows outdated. I think it's time to go. No i think that's a really valid thing. I think they're sick of politics. I you know. I really do love. Everybody individually i do. But you know if i look back with style gigli. It's not what was but seriously lot of issued every one of those people got. It's funny that you say that. Yeah i mean did so. Bill did not prep elizabeth about politics before openings. What in terms prep no. There's like one meeting and everybody like there like those big meeting. I can't sit here on. Alexei ever had a conversation but there was segment big beating. Is it true that debbie monopolists would would read the. She was the one answering the emails. Because no one knew how to answer emails. It was the view at aol dot com. I actually i know. That's joe debbie preceded by. I have no idea star. Jones is wedding. Did that drive you guys bonkers it. I was not involved in. Thank god but i know as a result the bad a lot of perks went away so it makes sense. I wasn't wrong. Yeah i wasn't might either. My best friend got married and save night will who cares. Your best friend got married backstage. After sherri shepherd said the earth was flat. Did you guys look at each other in surprise. Now i think she's. Shane was i have to tell you she is like she was what was cool about that. It's like she owns her. She was i think she was like runoff. And i remember. She said like almost on mother's trying to feed my cat or something like that. Yeah it was like people say stupid should our retirement. She's by far not stupid. And i don't know i don't. I don't remember actually my reaction that i was like. Just find into how she reacted after like she. She's rubbermaid very close with no. I don't number going. What the fuck at all. What about when. Barbara was not onset was built getty like sweet. The trains going to go a little bit faster official. He always read the train out of the way. It said it matter. Barbara always made things or was barbara was barbara for sure but she always made things better. Life was far. Burt like tanga. Difficult isn't the right word. was she. Lake saint difficult is in a word what she liked barber like kicked me under the table or to a producer. Like i'm in wisconsin rama wyoming. Why do i care absolutely but you should make him better. Yes absolutely bill care. No bill always did bill. Y- like the barber was never a factor. Bill being bill. No what do you think is the archetype of a daytime viewer. It's changed much i mean. Dvr has changed. So i don't know what is the archetype now. What was then it's different. I remember it the view. They told us that people used to roll their eyes or anything over thirty five dollars that used to show on a show. You know like an na sagara after thirty five dollars people are rolling is they can't afford. They always used to talk. You know there was these any show that you do. There were like research about the dance the audience so now the daytime morning is totally changed. Its it's everybody it's everybody it's everybody. What is the biggest. What's the biggest surprise people. Would what what does the thing that surprise people the most about working in daytime television behind the scenes. It's hard it's exhausting. The schedule is a grind. I think people thank you. Just throw people up there. People who work in daytime. Tv can work anywhere. They are the biggest problem solvers. They're the most creative. They're the most flexible the most innovative. It is a grind. I would put a daytime tv producer up against anybody any career any job any anything and and hosts and they could do anything. I that's that's a fad. That's the biggest misconception that it's easy that it's glamorous that it's that it's that it's hard work the schedule is a grind. It's exhausting it's draining But produced eight ten tv. You have to be really really really solid flexible hardcore and just be prepared for anything to have a solution at any moment. So i think that's the biggest misconception and do you keep in touch with everybody that you work with on these shows. The people at the veal saami get married. Have my daughter My husband at time Had a lot of medical issues. They were there for me. When i went off to gal they supported me when i got four. They were there. I it's like they. Just i i would have died without then when you are in daytime it is. It's it's a family. It is You know those shows if you don't like the people you're with their stories to be there you can't just be there for the show you have to be there for the people. And that's that's the fact and house barbara walters doing to. Does anybody know 'cause we talk every day. I don't know i she felix or I feel like barbara. Walters just disappeared. You know she just come for tired and then just disappeared. According to cindy adams she was doing great. They were ordering chinese scuba last. I checked good. Okay good okay. You've said the gayle king is like one of your most favorite people in the world. What is best less adding alive. What what is the best lesson you learned from gayle king you can cheer on your competition. Still wanna beat them. You could ask anybody anything. It's on the way that you ask it. I and one of those people. She's probably the best producer. I know by far. I mean she's just she's it. Iv and. she showed us everything. Good i learned from her the screen. I love that. Tell me a little bit about the tv show and your podcast about what you're working on now. The podcast is not mind. The podcast is what i do. You know my father died from addiction. He was drac alcoholic. And this podcast is hosted by a brad. Lamm and mackenzie phillips. It's called america. Recovers and it's all about how You know people Their they're roach. Recover recovery you know america. There's never been more addiction than there is now and this this story for people who You know get to the other side and you know it's for the people that they say the addicted afflicted ineffective It's incredibly important to me. we cover every kind of addiction from alcohol drugs to shopping eating Gaming everything so there is something for everybody. I love it and it's amazing and it's you know you can get whoever you get every podcast you know. Everybody and their mother has a podcast. But this one. I love more than anything and the show is called inside the black box My partners in the hosts are joe morton and you know him from scandal and from everything no possible and tracy moore is a huge huge huge huge acting coach at a casting director She's known for transitioning rappers to actors. She's absolutely incredible and The show which we worked on we started Years ago it's about not being white in the entertainment business so historically speaking and Today and you know we talked to actors producers directors at its there's interviews interactive exercises. I'm really so excited. Start shooting on if this pants had. Just they're up get going faster. But i've never ever ever been so excited about something and so you know when it came out and deadline that That i created a that. I was at epa I was excited about it. I was so proud. And i just wish my dad was here to see it but You know it's just the beginning of something that has meant so much for so long. So i'm really really really excited about it You know i just. I look back at the career i've had about one. I'm having and everything and everybody has prepared me for where i am now. Every success every failure of every everything. And you know it's like i think podcasting was like a happy accident and i think you know to stay. One place would have been the worst thing possible you know. Television is his is changing so fast. But i think that if you don't do something new you know you have to like. Just keep jumping daytime. Tv prepares you to keep jumping. How can people follow you. Because they're going to be a as obsessed with you as i am. I'm so aren't you sick appalling yourself. We could follow ourselves.

Leonard. fornet actor Matthew. Modine sports illustrated senior fantasy analyst Michael Bianco plus two time Olympic gold medalist, mckellar Schifrin, and now. Rich is all right everybody. Welcome. This edition of the Rich Eisen show here on peacock NBC S in radio station satellite terrestrial across this great nation and and Globe global I'll just say that. Welcome here to our our global I guess is a better work Welcome to the post week to NFL edition getting ready for game three in Western Conference finals. Getting Ready for sports all across our great landscape to continue to come back in and give us a some enjoyment like Monday night football last night. A good to see you by the way Chris. Howard over there, del Tufo off today He's doing stuff for somebody else that you know he says he's doing and we trust. So I honestly, trust honestly TJ. Jefferson good to see you over there service. You'll higher registered like so Eddie. Okay. So what we what do we take from last night's Monday night game. If you. Read. Twitter and honestly trying to read less of it these days same but it is such a crucial news gathering item, and also you get to see what others are thinking as your as your as you're trying to figure things out, you know moving moving forward. Trying to figure all that stuff out. During a game. I'm looking at it and you. What do you glean from? Monday, night football last night. Things drew brees has done. That's it It's been great. It's been great and He's done and all my colleagues at NBC that are waiting for him. I guess you're going to get them week three. That's a kind of a bummer. Well, they are going to get him in week three for sure because of his next game is on Sunday night football. But I'm just talk broadcasting career apparently he's done he threw for three hundred yards. Last night he's finished twenty six. It's funny look at his stat line twenty six of thirty, three, hundred, twelve yards, touchdown interception. Alvin Kamara tremendous last night damn near over one hundred yards receiving. trae Kwan Smith with Michael Thomas out. He had quite a night. Five catches eighty, six yards you take a look at that and you're like, okay. So breeze did what he needed to do with my as his number one receiver out the guy who basically targets half the time out. For, the first time in a long time. and. And he quit himself. But then the eye test. where it was a check down central quite a bit. It was our friends at pf pro football focus Chris, Collins worth pro football focus where they break everything down. Love that side. Drew brees is average target depth in other words the number that the average depth. From the line of scrimmage where he was targeting a receiver. Five point three yards last night. And all his three hundred, some odd passing yards he amassed last night sixty percent of them were yards after catch. Meaning he puts the ball exactly where it needs to be. He positions his receiver to catch and run. That is part of this offense. But when need to throw deep even though they are planning to safeties back as by the way, I really enjoyed listening to the broadcast last night. Big Bags I've heard his voice get out of town and I mean for over a quarter century on sportscenter greasy and and Louis Riddick. I really enjoyed listening to their commentary. They're talking about two safeties deep. So obviously, they're like saying, you're not gonNA, throw it their throw or you're supposed to throw it and drew brees is one of those quarterbacks like you get me what what, what you're going to give me an I'll take it. But you look at drew brees and you see last night and you all that plus the number forty one, which is his age now. And it came up. based. Also on his. Week, one performance in which the Saints One. People. Are Viewing that as the D. Odorant of diminishing returns by the way that's not a bad fantasy down again. Deodorant of diminishing returns thing covering things up. Now drew brees himself was asked about this. Last night. This is what drew brees had to say. On this very subject. My job is execute the office, right so Allah I. I. Think I've I've I've always evaluated myself on being a great decision maker and so at the end of the day throw the ball the open guy Down the field score points, Helpless Win Football Games, you know so that's my job. My Job's not to have the most yards. or throw the ball downfield the most or anything like that. Now, my job to help us win and jobs L. put everybody around me the best position to succeed. And? That's all I'm focused on. That's a goat chafing at the question. Who could have been the MVP of the Super Bowl Year peyton manning won with the Colts I'll answer that question for you the running back Dominic Rhodes corralled have been the MVP that night. Because of how many times peyton manning checked it down to him. And I, know that that would probably shave what Peyton manning because he was playing cover to Lovey Smith's defense he took. What was given? To him. That is the way I'm GonNa take this right now. Because I have been around the block long enough. To Not Paint with the broad brush. The brush the paint of your done atop ago. I mean Kellerman. Brady for. Will Not do it. It's very simple for us to do it. All I'm going to say. Is it short looked at times last night that the saints could use some chunk place. And they weren't there. And part of it is you must proverbially proverbially tip the cap to the raiders which I will do at length momentarily. But the story coming on this is the Saints Super Bowl contenders. No Michael Thomas drew brees looking at times ordinary. And you've got this as the storyline coming out of this game. Because the saints are one in one. By the way still tied for the lead there really in front because they've got a tiebreak on the other one, one team because they're one is against. The box. Whose Leonard Fournette will be joining US shortly. I'm just not ready to do it yet. But. There's Sunday night. Coming up. And you know. BREES will be on the storyline all week you know. Sean Payton will be hearing it. You know. that. Sunday night football is in New Orleans with green bay coming to town and Aaron Rodgers and oh boy. Let's see what the saints look like here but you think they're going to throw deep on the I. I feel I. Am not no let see what the passing game looks like I'm not ready to say breeze can't push the ball down the field because he's an old man and he's toast I'm just not going to do that. That's the that is absolutely what you're hearing today from a ton of people I won't do it. I won't do it because again sometimes a quarterback will win a game based on what you give him doesn't matter what it looks like in terms of air yards, and sometimes the quarterback will take what you give them and they lose and they'd look like they don't have the ability or gumption to throw deep baby. And heard what breezes answer is right there I will. As if he cares or not accept that. But. You're comes green bay here comes Aaron Rodgers here Aaron Rodgers with a chip on his shoulder still here comes Aaron Rodgers throwing deep left right to everybody forty two points again everybody's right. Everybody's eating right now. And so yeah, breezes coming to NBC. Many people think he's coming as a broadcaster very shortly and others think that like I. Am I'm waiting to hear and say didn't look good for the saints last night. Obviously. Part of the reason why is because of the raiders? Now then. If Derek Carr. makes. Decisions. That are. SMART If he is accurate in making those decisions. and. If he's decisive and accurate. And also. Mistake free. This is GonNa be a tough team that be. This is going to be a tough team. To beat. Darren Waller is a problem monster. Okay. Darren Waller is a problem last night Sean, Payton said when asked you know Did you have the right combination he goes pretty much. They couldn't figure it out during the Game Darren Wall was a problem. Significantly today Bill Belichick. In his zoom. Today getting set for his next. Game against these raiders. said, it's been a long time since we've seen a tight end like waller I'm paraphrasing but this is a guy who coached gronk. He's a problem. The run Game Josh Jacobs. If he can stay healthy, you know I've told this to May. I told it to him. He looks like Zeke to me. He arrived with intent. He arrives with intent. And he gets stronger as the game goes on. He got banged up last night came back and he started running the out for the raiders hitting people. Now. I will also say this, what's so good about the raiders. May Ox, building quite a team. And GRUDEN's dialing up now obviously I'm biased about Mike but. The raiders are beginning to have monsters at several positions. Tight end running back. Defensive Ed Max two XS crosby. is also a problem. He's a monster. He he's he's right around the corner from getting defensive player of the year conversation. Like if. It's higher register right now. Next. Crosby right. Now you know. Like right now it's higher register but soon, it's going to be like this Max. Crosby. And then as long as he's not having a freak injury in week one or. Getting knocked by television cards in week two seconds. You see Jonathan Abrams a monster to he is. He's a problem. So you got problems on the back end in the front end of the defense and you got a problem at tight end, you got a problem at running back. This is why they went for Antonio Brown if they can get a problem at wide receiver. Like a problem, could it be rugs Galore showing a little bit? Higher. Moves Right. How many people didn't even know he was on the raiders right? I didn't tell the second quarter. So if they can have a problem at wide receiver. Coach. Guys. All Man is he back GRUDEN's back? I'm here for two. Years Post game video. In the locker room, he goes for fifty four yards. He he kicks deep baby I mean. Fifty four yarder isis the game and again Derek Carr. Is He's leader dealing. He's dealing while I two games. He's dealing. You know he went toe to toe with. In Carolina. Week one. You know traveling across the country pandemic I first snaps come after get on a plane and fly away out your masked up you're doing all this stuff. I am very impressed with the raiders. Yeah. They have they have something cooking. Avoid. The injury bug. And avoid and avoid mistakes. They're going to be a difficult team and they're coming at you physical to. I mean waller's a beast and so is this kid Josh Jacobs? I was worried he getting mistake free of when Rashard fumbled the ball opened a door up for the saints in that game but God. Bless GRUDEN. What's the touchdown at sealed it same play that Rashard fumbled they called the scene play that restart fumbled. He grabbed it made a nice move on the sideline where I think the saints thought he was just going to go out of bounce late any kept going. Oakland at new. England man is a big week three game saints. At packers air. Some Nice. Week. Three matchup. They're. Going in New England and then we're one week. But this this show one week will be all about the Monday night finale of. Three between the chiefs and the Ravens. Fun Stuff. But I, don't I don't know if if GRUDEN's. and. So that's four fourteen more games. Until You might have the. Actual Sixteen old man go right there. Right now I WANNA, they were fun to watch. Fun To watch like I'm telling you they have physical and then hunter Renfro is run around. Out of the slot. Edwards made play quicker than fast used the phrase. It always heard about players like him. You know. And I know rugs only had one catch but just grant navy him maybe he's got well, that was also the penalty toward the end of the game wasn't wasn't that who yeah, car was thrown that was the last penalty. The the backbreaker. where ginormous, Jenkins hooked rugs. So that's my those are my two takes on. Not I will not bury drew brees two games into his season with forty at eight, forty, one, I just won't do you have the shovel in your hand? No, I don't. Okay. I don't the whole Doug I don't. Have you picked up by I. Know I am not doing that yet. He didn't look good. Well. Again He. Doesn't have the guy who he literally looks for half the time can't be guarded. And he's gone. Emmanuel Sanders was a non factor last night surprise. Oh no I will not do it yet. I won't do it yet. Okay. It would be helpful if the if the if the Saints Defense could have put car on his ass or figured out how to. To Guard can't guard Darren. I guess right. I. Mean can't guard Waller last night. So the defense. Earns finger to be pointed in their direction a good finger right? You have the the index finger. That's my take on Monday night football I'm. Not, GONNA come. Might be a little bit too nuanced for for something like this. I mean, it's Tuesday come out hot. Well. I've got my heartache fourth down. You're GonNa really enjoy it spicy. It's a spicy, my four downs. I'll give you love it for observations of the NFL through two weeks three of them are. Legit the fourth one is my fourth down hot I've honestly I allow myself just a quick hot minute to be a hot take artist. But I do believe in my heart that this is I want to go sixteen in on all my hot takes as well. That's right. Thank you. Break out the Franks red hot I won't do so but that and everything So here's our show. We're very excited Leonard Four NETS COMING RIGHT UP Matthew Modine, is here. And he wants to talk about full metal jacket, which is one of my favorite movies of all time a great Kubrick film. There are those who think the first half as much better than the second year one of those people in that category. It is something else and the reason why he's coming on is because available today on four. K Ultra HD BLU Ray Combo pack, and digital. So. He's die hard knick fan I don't know if I'm going to go. And pull them into the private pyle part of the Dolan wormhole. But I'll I'll I will do it or? What is your major mouthful Michaela Schifrin is joining me the seven time Olympic and world ski champ. she will join us as our friends at NBC in Peacock. The? Tokyo. Games are around the corner next year and I know that she's a A Winter Olympian but there's a lot going on in that world. Because of covert nineteen and the inability to get ready for the twenty, twenty, two games, she will be joining us in our third hour and tonight's a big waiver wire fantasy. Yet is I. You know I've got the first overall pick in my wear. Yes and I've got SAQUON team and I need a running back.

Terrestrial radio outfits checking out the rich Eisen show every single day we've got a lot going on today as we mentioned, four guests can't wait Matthew Modine Is also you WANNA talk vision quest with him to write you don't like what do you want to know about vision quests like literally what is the one thing? You're even curious about vision quest? To work with Linda Fiorentino I think that was. The be my number is that right? Yeah. Why would? Like a twelve year old TJ. Phelan's watching that movie I can't ask somebody. How hot was Linda? Fiorentino? Question needs to be asked because it's obvious. Closely vision quests doesn't usually get a lot of run for sports movies. Right? I've never seen it I'm I'm I'm weird though you know but. Yeah about wrestling, right? Yeah. You sightly obsessed with wrestling. So but well, I mean you like the top rope hit people on top of the head with folding chairs type wrestling. DIG IT I want some any given Sunday with Matthew Modine. he's in a lot of stuff he was in any given. Sunday, wasn't he? The doctors who could go. Yeah. Eight four four four rich number to dial here on the rich Eisen. Show, we've got thirty, two, hundred, four games in the books and everything seems to be going bills good behind my gosh feels good. Knock on wood right there. What's our poll question over there? Christopher today eleven to ano teams guys. That's a lot in case you're wondering. But who's the biggest surprise at two and? Bears Cardinals Raiders Rams at richeisenshow. Cardinals. Raiders Rams gotTA shocked at all four of these are to no but. Bears Cardinals Raiders Rams. I. Mean The bears did have a visit to the lions. Hype coming into the line they need I know they needed they needed a a a huge fourth quarter comeback dropped pass and then against the giants. They needed saquon get injured, and then put the giants almost came back wanted to they could the fine line between oem to and to know like if Andrea Swift caught the ball in and Daniel Jones find someone in the end zone. We might be seeing nick foles in week three. Perhaps. Perhaps. Cardinals Baby. The forty niners week one. Raiders no one thought they would be to and there was a lot of question mark what the rams coming into this season. If. They would be back or not. The rams are asked Buffalo this weekend huge game. That has sneaky huge. The Rams are at Buffalo this weekend and. I think the rams did fly home. From philly. So there they went all out to Philly then flew home. To be here and now they're gonNA go to Western. New York whereas aren't the forty niners staying on the east coast because they're playing man if they can beat Josh Allen and this bills team, which has as you know. Division aspirations beyond. Look at the next three games. Giants Washington football team. And who knows what's going to happen with the forty niners? Now that it is officially. Lost Not one but two defensive linemen. Let's just keep going. They use week eight. No into the bye week as a real possibility that at San. Francisco. Not, going to. Chalk anything up against the forty niners. Know? What that team's going to look like the forty niners Garoppolo going to be back as Deebo Samuel. Looks. Like Garoppolo is now day to day has and has escaped. Injury. which as you know is something that's an outlier. Forty niners these days and the high ankle. Sprain. Okay. We welcoming back to the rich Eisen show But for the first time as a Tampa Bay buccaneer fresh off of a big performance in week number two for this team that I have chosen to win it all. I'm not just saying that the butter up my next guest I truly felt that way based on everything that I saw this off season and then he's acquisition. By the team after Jacksonville moved on surprisingly from him was kind of like the final. Decision Maker for me. He's Leonard. Fournette. How are you Leonard. Long rich how you've been Ha-. I am well how about you? What's going on with? You got it. So when did you hear that you were GonNa get let go by Jacksonville. Let's start with the last few weeks before we turn to the current day WHOA now, I anything to be honest but. When I was on my way long up for breakfast to get rid of apartment stuff and it'll give it a eat. One dies from the office. Talk to in You just releasing. Whereas nothing scheme, I'm more of these balls twenty. Times, you know which school and business in. That now of my first And Enough L. in a it was there's no, there's no harm the hallways. New hurt none of that A new start from here in. Know Look obviously you're you're in a pretty good spot, but before we get to that spot though I do want to linger on this a little bit if you don't mind. So coach Marrone told you you were not a scheme fit in in releasing you. How did that simple you? You mean, you know it was shocking. I was shocked I didn't really have anywhere to say to be honest just shook. His hand would see a couple of glass couple of reporting. Let me go and that's about it. Know I moved on, of course. Now. You're with Tampa lawyer decision what were your choices when you had one. I had a lot a lot of of Janas. And I just. Felt like. CAPELA was the the place for me as far as like position that was ideal like. Tom, Brady is the quarterback got by Mike. Evans. Yeah. Chris GRUNK. Sean grow jobs. We have a great line. He ever got a hell of a defense. And I said I can help out. Even more coming here, and that was my decision you know. Did. Anybody. Did Brady call you while you were making your decision. Did he reach out at any point to say come here or yeah I mean I mean a a lotta gossip from all over. But at in the day I think. The last the doesn't came to me you know and I felt like. Tampa was the ideal choice for me especially coming from one team. So you eight nine, million boxes. You know and I think. And I think that's why a lot of people of took my comment. You know when I say about the issue with I, didn't really mean it like that but. What I really was like, I know time to help me out a lot. I think a lot of the. Guys. Scheme the they They fear that man you know what I mean he's playing. So I think I help myself out to put myself in the situation and not. Being forced to ball twenty. Game. Now I hear you I'm out of film Junkie I've only seen it. I only saw it live but didn't touchdown you ripped off to and the game wasn't that common with a bunch of guys in the Box Leonard? Didn't that. You. Because You know The situation within his Kinda like the end of the game. We were on the ball was second run. So yeah, it was. Kind of specialty of yours you did that against Pittsburgh a few times. If I'm not mistaken back in your back in your Jacksonville days, I got Leonard Fournette here on the rich Eisen show. So your first impressions of Tom, Brady and playing alongside the goat would be what? You you love a guy that. Gets frustrated and we make mistakes and when I when when I I don't like. The minimum like. It hurts them almost fake that he made a bad choice and that's the type of guy around me and I think. The whole team better as a whole. Weekend kind of. Reflect the sales and get. Things you've made and get better from you know I've seen every Tom Tom you motivate everyone especially the offense long gone. Have a bad drive but. He does agree motivated. It'd beat Arou-. And just in terms of not wanting to disappoint them as well. Leonard. Is that what you're saying there's that aspect of it and and I made the point to. we open our during the week. And just to get ready for. Sunday you know. So I think vice versa I think we kinda expect that ourselves to mess up Leonard Fournette here on the rich Eisen show So you know all of us are focused on who's starter, who is not what your relationship with Ronald Jones like and obviously the Sean. That's a heck of a running back room that she got right there. Yeah, I love it. Man Do you know he's Kinda through so? Quite stadium more of the out boys type. Shaney twenty as hell man I, mean. He keeps the room going I'm going to and I've been around a lot of guys but I think. You know evolved. But from you know from. I think this is. The second year is my fourth year. And this is the first time I've ever been in. The last two years. Older than know like like like. Like mcchord you know last year Jacksonville coalition next I was guy and Chris. Bouncing. With 'cause I wanted to my full year in the guy would weird. Funny but. I I. Love the running back group. You know I think We think get better in the whole. We kinda help each other with the little things you know 'cause you know been been for a minute and the things. He's done. You know he's always taking helping game. Now you see it's it's rare for you to be in a room with some older haven't you been room Tom? Coughlin? Yeah I have. Second. Tom Tom. Tom Coach. Yup I'm a funny guy to Leonard. You know I guess that's my competitive streak when I hear that you know you're talking about other people being funny I, guess, that was my competitive streak coming out there. That was a nightmare. Thank I appreciate that that's kind of all I'm looking for. So what was the conversation like between weeks one and two we're all focused on areas and Brady's relationship and how the offense did not come out looking like somebody that was about to win the Super Bowl and I you know obviously it's a work in progress. But what was it like internally that conversation between weeks wanted to Leonard Fournette. Thing. I does my third day. I know so. I think that time will. Only, get better and better. You know. And Is a lot of us don't have chemistry like we like we like we like. The price years. By just like my. On my thirty. It is. And I'm still learning. Still figuring them out. Weaknesses in what they're good at. What can help them all so You know. Of of nine that he loved the game of Football. And I think he's GonNa. Do agree figuring guys to help us out into waste like that. Leonard Look Man I. Appreciate the time. Thank you for calling in. And let's do this on the regular. You know congrats on on With team that's got super bowl qualities and a place where you still don't have to pay state tax And and and you know, let's let's let's let's catch up midseason. See how you're doing. You don't want preachers that you got to be. Well, that's Leonard Fournette right here on the rich Eisen show is. Phone connection getting a little bit Wonky as they say. Look I, don't want to. Make any predictions when I was telling you last week I think Benny Snell was about to take over the steelers running back position in in had James Connor had different intense. But maybe. Were focused on the wrong thing here. Good on hold on hold on maybe Ronald Jones. Is Your opener to use the baseball phrase? Okay and this guy's closer. McCoy with good in the passing game dude he dropped one in the end zone to. Tom Hit him hit him right in the hands. Cut On time sitting there too I. But he had to get him down there. That's the whole thing is it's this is why I chose them. Because their defense is pretty, damn good. Okay. And Brady. Evans Godwin GRONK OJ Howard that running back room that offensive line that mindset with Aaron's and left which that's. That's why I chose them. I get the the team we're seeing now probably for the next two weeks is not going to be the. Work in progress. Leonard. Said Chemistry If you will but maybe. Ronald Jones the starter. And then he tend to rises. And then incomes Leonard Pulverized. And What GRONK can get up to speed you play fake twenty eight and you find eighty seven. or thirteen. Or twelve I mean, you just keep going on and. That's why like him. I think so unless Brady can't push the ball down the field either. That'll be that'll be the conversation when the next about it'll be the conversation on the Sunday nighter. In Tampa week nine. Circle November Eighth Allen Chris and everyone else with the with the buccaneers ship. You don't think it's going to be James against his former team. Just, no dude. You're. You're again you're touching on something. That was all over twitter. Last night all over. Okay And? If Brady can't push the I mean breezes trouble pushing the ball down the field. He got somebody who can push the ball down the field, but he also got somebody who can push it in somebody else's hands and that is not what drew brees is going to do. I'm not ready for that. Just repeat everybody I am not ready for that yet. But when we come back, I am ready for four downs. Cam Related. Yes. Also. One injury that isn't being talked about all that much.

All the vectors had been crossed from one team when other. All, the testing prior to this was everybody in their thirty, two facilities and. Making sure that everyone's covert free by the time they step on a field in week one. First Time tests were conducted team that got on a plane and stayed in a hotel room, and then went to a stadium in played and got on a plane and went home. Zero positives. News. Thousands upon thousands. Of. Tests. Zero positives meaning testing doesn't. Find cases. Just throwing that out there. That's the positive. Here's the negative. Notre Dame football getting set to take on wake forest this very Saturday. According to Pete Thamel will not practice today they announced four positive cove in nineteen tests yesterday. So. Here we on a Tuesday game. Saturday. No practice. Keep your eyes. And ears if you will open and peeled on news on that front. Sending. Our best to coach Kelly and hoping they can get out there. So. That's your update on the covid nineteen front and the fact again that the NFL was. Knock on wood if you're with me. Free of covert testing right now free of COVID. Positive tests right now. We can lose ourselves and stuff like say four downs. Get to it right here. Downs with Ridge. Here we go. You. Thank you so much here's my first down. I sent out a tweet to this effect that got flaked about fifty thousand times and. There was a lot of people discussing it and I'm not bringing that up right now just because you know for any other sake of fact that it is somewhat of a hot topic. And Part of it is is two weeks into the NFL season. Two Cam Newton performances into the NFL season. Begs the question officially now for everyone. What we were wondering? Since the minute. It sounded like Carolina was going to part ways with him. And then did we on this show were wondering why in the world is no one signing cam. Now, the question is how in the world did no one else signed Cam Newton? Now, then the responses I got to my tweet on that front were many fold where people were like you know the answer, Ritchie's an African American quarterback in teams are racist. You could make a case that clearly African American quarterbacks in the NFL have a totally different set of circumstances they must meet in order to start that as a fact, we know it. Once again Blake Bortles assigned instead of Colin Kaepernick in Denver and that's a large conversation and part of it has absolutely political. We Love John Elway here on the show. He's been on I love this guy he has been part of fundraisers with Mike. Shanahan. In the Colorado area for. The president of the United States who has been very vocal about cabinet for many years although he has reversed position says it Colin should get a job now. Part of it is also drew lock as their guy, and you don't want to have a guy coming in. Who you've all wrapped up challenging somebody WHO's already? Your choice at quarterback. WHO's in year two? They are invested drew lock. They don't want cabinet coming in and running like crazy. For political reasons maybe sounds like it feels like it or for the fact that they don't want to complicate matters. So I just wanted to hit all that. Because you can also say. It's not. Racism. Clearly when one of the teams that should have gone and gotten them and we were pounding the table for weeks about it. Is A team That is coached by a man of. Color. Who is starting a man of color in Anthony Lynn. In Toronto Taylor who GonNa hit later on in the show as well because. Get somebody in your life who loves you as much as Anthony Lynn. Loves to Rod Taylor. will hit that later on. But I just wanted to touch upon the some of the responses I'm seeing on twitter about this being an issue of race. Jacksonville I have no idea why they WANNA go and get Cam Newton maybe garments shoes killing it down there. Maybe they believe in him ahead or we think tank for Trevor You WanNa tank for Trevor Cam Newton is not your choice and in Chicago. A trubisky look they are so wrapped in him because of the general manager there you think he's going to bring in, Cam? Hey brought nick foles in. I thought they should still brought in cam you WanNa Push Trubisky, and if he want to give them a shot fine but glucose stand right there because if you bring him in Trubisky's Never GonNa get another shot again if twenty fifteen cam shows up, which is also part of the issue why he was home considering covert nineteen you can't really get somebody in physical the NFL refused to allow people to get physical. There are ways around it though. And the guys coming up to surgery come on if the chargers Don't make the playoffs because the Patriots do. And if the Patriots go on to the Super Bowl in the AFC. Blame the chargers, bears and Jaguars. And whoever else needed a quarterback? That you think needs a quarterback because for some reason. They let cam sit at home. And let Bella check. Column. The worst possible guy for a twenty fifteen cam to be placed in that hands if you're the rest of the league. How in the hell did that happen? And you're shrugging right over there because right there. I. Mean the Patriots were looking at the start of their season post Brady stood of news yardstick hoyer. Come on. You wouldn't be one right now I don't think or this close to being. With. An absolute legit shot. To run the table. Yeah. Because it's ballot, check its manuals and it's twenty fifteen cam showing up and twenty twenty. Two weeks in that's I down. Let's move to second down right here. We're all focused on saquon Barkley injury because saquon is number two overall pick and everybody's fantasy draft after McCaffrey, and later on in the show, we've got Michael Fabiano calling us up to tell us about what to do a waiver wire and all that stuff. And also, saquon is on commercials and Saquon is in New York City in a major media market and he's just a dynamite human. That is all over the place. But Nick Bose's ACL injury is justice hurtful to the forty niners is to the giants and you can make a case. It's even more hurtful. Because the niners had super bowl aspirations, giants didn't and what Bosa means that defensive line and forget about the fact that Solomon Thomas also is out for the rest of the season due to injury what he means to this defensive line what he means to the defense, what he allows the rest of the defense to do what he does. Maybe the best of any defender in the NFL. Which is why defensive player of the year is all over the place for this guy? Could have won it last year even. That is harmful. Hurtful injury to the San Francisco Forty niners and I'm genuinely concerned for them for the rest of the year because of that injury in the same way, you think the giants season is done because Saquon can't say that about the forty niners because of how they are. But that injury is. Just, as bad just as harmful justice hurtful if not more so. To the forty niners Saquon China's let's get the third downright here. down. Okay You know I said this yesterday I said this. I said last week that I would like to Mulligan choosing this team to win the division and I said yesterday that they're deeply in trouble even though they weren't on our list of WHO's the team that's most in trouble because there are other choices we went with. But I'll tell you what the Minnesota Vikings are in deep deep trouble Stefan is now suddenly Jared Allen's favorite receiver. One hundred and fifty some odd yards for him and boy, the Vikings show looks like the Jared Allen. Vikings on the bring Josh Allen. Take a look at at at this offense right now. I mean the colts put the bank thing on Kirk cousins. Amount of passer rating guy unless of course, it fits my narrative fifteen point nine passer rating for Kirk cousins against the Indianapolis Colts. That is the fourth worst by any quarterback in the Super Bowl era. Yikes. The offensive line is not yelling at they're young, they're getting beat Dalvin Cook. Can't get many yards going to take any pressure off of cousins in the passing game. Mean you know. They need help they need help considerable help. Defensively. And Alvin Cook is the king of the Solo shots down eight runs in the ninth inning to use the baseball phrase. He's scoring touchdowns in the game out of reach. The packers are already two and a half games clear of. Look at the schedule. They've got the Tennessee titans this week. Then they're at Houston at Seattle home for Atlanta Atlanta could put fifty up on this team or all they got to do is score four touchdowns how how the Vikings can catch them. Then they got a bye week visit to Green Bay again back end. Week eleven their home for Dallas. And Two more visits with the NFC south at Tampa and at New Orleans in December. They're in deep deep deep trouble and I avoided that week thirteen game because that's my fourth down here on the rich. Take time, and of course, the plank has a mask because we're safe around here. We also find what do you got rich is okay. Here we go. Here's my fourth down how bad are the Vikings? How deep in trouble with? My apologies to all my vikings friends out there. Swanson. Oh and The handsome Josh Jamal who've been on the show. My Buddy pressman. Locally. My apologies to you, my fourth down is this doing vikings are in such deep trouble that when it's all said and done. The Jacksonville Jaguars we'll have a better record than the Minnesota Vikings and the two thousand and twenty season. Who? I thought you were going to even go one step further than what is that tank for Trevor? It's on Trevor Wild. Look that may be a conversation we're having later on I. Think the Vikings are still good enough to win more than twice or three times because the jets. I toyed with the idea of my hot, take the jets go oh and sixteen baby but I I just couldn't bring myself to do would have been hot. I couldn't bring myself to do it. Because at some point, they will get Lebanon Bell back and they will run him behind Mikhail Becton who's nasty and they might win a game or two. That's true. But in terms of the Jacksonville Jaguars, they are more talented offensively than this Minnesota Vikings team right now they are and look at that week thirteen game they go to Minnesota and they could beat Minnesota and the current state of affairs right now. They could do it. As a hard Scott, Jacksonville Jacksonville gotta you know. Schedule that is not that? It's back into the season though Green Bay Pittsburgh, Baltimore Tennessee because we're all playoff teams from did well, they've got their own division today I understand. But Hayman. Jacksonville. Can have a better record than the Minnesota Vikings right now Gardner Mint you do. Garden. and. Again I know there's difference between all home and road this year even though there's no fans there was fans in the stands and it's tough to go on the road and a pandemic I cannot imagine. Yeah. For for sport where everybody's so routinization scheduled. To have to go and do something that you've never done before. But Jacksonville. Ripped up Indianapolis ripped. Him Up. and Kirk cousins against the same defense had the fourth worst passer rating. In the Super Bowl. They're in trouble. Kirk cousins also still on the hook for thirty five million guaranteed next year. That's my four down right here on the rich Eisen. Show. I. I. I can't look at their depth chart. I think it's fair scares. Cook scares you and John Cook. But dealings getting doubled. Fresher off. And cousins is going to have to start winging it around a little bit more and you know Zimmer doesn't want to do that. 'cause could go on because he just wants to run it and get his defense back out there. And they haven't been able to I. Mean They held up they help you know Mulally Cox. Got One hundred yards receiving and I'm hoping that does mean something for the colts. Yeah. Well, they have young corners. I endured. ATLANTA. Not See that. How did I not see that hot or not sit here and think Aaron Rodgers was gonNA Torch everybody that's in front of him because he's so pissed at the world and that the defenses and changed. The defense in in Green Bay still has the same guy I thought they. Improve Damn thing for. Nine proof and I did on that narrative and I didn't believe in richeisenshow favorite Aaron Jones. Hell was I thinking? Same thing could be asked of Anthony Lynn, the head coach of the Los Angeles chargers into the valuation of his quarterback position. What he had to say yesterday Chris Brockman News Update Matthew Modine. Talking about full metal. Jacket. Private Joker. We'll be joining us here in our number two and you at eight, four, four, zero, four at your phone calls coming up as well. Yeah was coming. To. Join me.

Inside the Parker - Andrelton Simmons Opt Out; MLB Playoff 'Madness'; Biggest Reg. Season Surprise/Disappointment; Actor/Yankee Fanatic Matthew Modine

"We can't make progress because too many of our country's rules and institutions were designed exclude black people we need real change. It's time to eliminate the filibuster. Makdissi Estate Seriously fixed the Supreme Court and abolished the Electoral College. We must vote in November, but we need a pen of action. Now it's time to finally bill a true equal and just democracy. Paid for by just crecy Zai-qing. What's going on I? Know it's been a while since you may have been out of the house living life like you used to. But you know what? There is the open road that still is out there and you should probably reintroduce yourself to it in a Mazda. I was lucky enough to drive around in a nine the last couple of months and. I have to say the C. UV Lineup Mazda is pretty wonderful. These vehicles are masterfully crafted. They have elevated design that's reflected in every detail from the the controller knobs to the steering wheel. It's all there. So if you want more information on the Mazi lineup including the first ever see thirty Goethe Mas, the USA dot com slash Iheart, and don't forget to explore their strongest finance options. Burke shears to the sound from wherever you live in Mlb America. This is inside the Parker you give us twenty two minutes. We'll give you the scoop on Major League Baseball. Now, here's baseball hall of fame voter. Rob, Parker welcome into the podcast I'm your host rob. Parker what a show we have for you today. Actor Matthew Modine. Yes. The big time Yankee, Fan will talk about his bronx bombers. And much more plus. Yahu Sports National Baseball, writer Tim Brown that. Plus Sanchez diamond. Dos. Let's go. To lead off, it's getting rocked and keep them up rob's heartache the three biggest stories in major league baseball. Number. One I. Know I know some people will not let this sit well with them. That Angel shortstop? Andrew. has opted out of the angel season with less than a week to go. And here's the bad part is that the angels are still mathematically In the playoff race for wildcard. But I'M GONNA error here on the side of caution and with the Corona Virus Covid Nineteen And just people worrying about their family and their health I, it's hard for me. To Rip on Simmons if this is what he believes is the best thing for his family. It just seems strange that you play the int- almost the entire season. Come to the final week where your team needs you and then decide that you will not finish the regular season, but it is what it is in twenty twenty, number two I don't know about you but the playoffs a less than a week to start and you know here we go. NBA Nhl Stall play with sixteen teams making it. And to audit three to start, but here's the real interesting thing next Tuesday are you ready? ESPN and ABC begin televising seven of the eight first round three gay major league. Baseball. Playoff. Series. That means that possible. Twenty one games in three days you'll be able to watch. Did you hear what I said I'll possible twenty one. Playoff Games. In three days. So this'll be uncharted territory. Go out is the one game play in for the wild card in is now sixteen teams, but this will be a smorgasbord. It'll be like a college basketball on the first day of the tournament there will be wall to wall baseball for three days. Enjoy it number three time for me to give you my biggest surprise in a good way for the season and the biggest disappointment. For the season and the biggest surprise I gotta say the San Diego Padres I. Mean I get it. They were making moves. You know when they signed manny, Machado had a great year for them but the emergence, of Fernando Tattoos Junior. Just, added another dimension there and then To be able. To also compete with the dodgers and to be traders at the trade deadline and pick up my cleven from the Indians. That to me said a lot about the padres at about having a chance in this post season, and then again, don't forget that it's not gonNA be a one year deal. They got young players, young stars and padres or going to be around the make some noise. So yes, they are the biggest surprise making their first playoff appearance. In fourteen years amazing. The biggest disappointment could either be the Washington nationals, who of course, who will not be able to defend their world series championship of a year ago and the Boston Red Sox who the bottom fell out of everything I. got it. Chris sales was hurt. The nationals had injuries as well. So both really suffered with injuries this year. But it is disappointing that the nationals couldn't make the playoffs when you think about the expansion and for the red SOx to be as awful as they have been is pretty shocking. Yes. We know they traded mookie Betts and David Price, but for the bottom of fallout seems a bit extreme. Here comes the big interview. Listen and learn which so cool. Let's walk into the PODCAST. Matthew Modine of course, the actor brought to you today here by full metal jacket, which is available now on four K, ultra hd Blu Ray Combo pack and digital Stanley Kubrick's nineteen eighty-seven war classic is available on four K. Resolution for the first time and Matthew. Thanks for joining us. By, pleasure it's exciting to be here. Thank you for having me. You know I'm excited about this. Tell me about the rerelease you know in this hd full metal jacket gotta be excited. He had so leon tally who worked with Stanley Kubrick from Berry, Lyndon on. So Barry Lyndon and the shining full metal jacket and eyes wide shut. He there's not an aspect of film making that he doesn't know about in so Leon Batali actually there's a documentary film. You can see that that talks about him and his life called film worker amazing documentary that it's great insight into Stanley Kubrick but also Liam to tally. So Leon. His remastered this film he's gone in and frame by frame of full metal jacket taken the negative of the film and scan each frame. To create this four K you know ultra. Hd Experience and I. I've only seen little pieces of it, but it's like. Like a brand new movie, it's it's there's so much detail that when you make when you have the negative, there's information that that the motion picture camera captures and puts on a negative a piece of celluloid, and then when you make a positive of that negative the prints can you know the are never as great as what? Of the amount of information that's in the negative. So to be able to go and frame by frame, scan each of those frames. there's so much information that you couldn't see when you were watching the movie. The detail and the remastering of the sound and the music, and it's a testament to Stanley Kubrick's after thirty three years the the the this film is still part of the conversation that that. So many things from the film sentences, you know things, lines that people spoke. have become part of our everyday vernacular. You know do you talk to talk to you walk the walk? You're the kind of guy that could suck a golf ball through a garden hose you know to to to live crew with. Sampling of the. ME. So. Horny. Just putting it in the song no doubt I'll guess Matthew Modine, of course, the actor and he joins us here an inside the Parker and yes, you are baseball fan a Yankees Fan I know you are. This sees it. You know it's been a little crazy. You know it's almost down to the Matthew Sixty Games. They had a rough patch in the middle of the season with a lot of injuries but they're they're playing better you happy where they're headed as playoffs or about the start. Yeah, I was happy they got those last ten wins in a row and. We slipped a little bit. Now we finally lost a Boston. We lost the game and but I, think they the bombers the looking good. I'm excited and you know it's a short and season. So everything is really different. It's it's sad but it's a it's a part of life that we don't get to go to the Games and and you know cheer together and celebrate. everything. That's New York and the Yankees. But you know that's that's the situation and we'll get through it. We we'll get through it and I think that we're GONNA come out the other side of this better. I think that this has given us a lot of opportunities to to look at look look within and and Understand ourselves a little bit better. Yeah. I'm with you on that and I know you did a twenty eighteen. High video for the Yankees and You know the playoffs the last few years, the Yankees despite all the injuries Matthew Dave. Gone to the AL had a chance to get to the world series in two of the last three years losing to the Astros. When you see the Astros and noted, they're cheating scandal do you feel a little cheated about you know? Especially? Last year. Yeah, absolutely, I don't know why they didn't I mean they must have asterix next to their name but I I don't know why the Baseball Commissioner didn't take it away. Didn't take that championship away. I mean we we can't. We can't celebrate people for cheating and you know. I'm a I'm. A New, York jets Fan. As well. I say jets giants because I I love them both but. you know a how many times Bella check got caught cheating up there in New England No doubt about it I always say he can't be considered the greatest coach ever because of those marks of of cheating. The one thing speaking of cheating I think sometimes Achey fans feel cheated because Aaron judge just can't seem to stay healthy for full year when he was healthy to start to season where you excited 'cause we've seen what the guy can do when he's out there and he can play every day. He's amazing. I mean he's a he's a specimen. You know he's I I I've never seen somebody that big move as fast as he does. swing about like he does I mean he's he's a kind of a a frequent nature, but he's he. He's one of the most exciting baseball players in the in the sports. So I think that you know he's very young and and I think that. Every year that goes by he's GONNA understand his body a little bit better. And know how to train a little bit differently and he's GonNa. Be Fine. You know he's got. He's got. three or four five really good years coming coming ahead of him. I. Think that we're we're all going to be proud that he's a Yankee. Matthew before the season started I, picked the dodgers and the Yankees. I think they have the best to rosters. They haven't met since nineteen eighty-one with that being awesome world series of these two teams met. That's what I was hoping for a couple of years ago that that that would have just east I west the old Brooklyn dodgers you know the history, the legacy that would have been spectacular but you know it was in our state, but you know we. We can. We can hope we can hope that that's a that's a that's a great rivalry. There you know. No doubt. All right. Thank you so much. I do want to say an addition to the four K. release of full metal jacket also put out a full metal jacket diary project, which was originally a limited edition book you know out of print. And is now an award-winning IPAD, APP commentary and Auto Book Matthew. Again, thanks for joining the PODCASTS and all all the best of luck as you move forward.

Thank you so much for your time and that was fun push eight you. All right. Thank you so much. Go Yankees. Hey Miles it's Jack How's it going man good man you know just taking in that new car smell as much as I can. Open my lungs a bit cooped. I'm feeling cooped up man I gotta get I gotTa get out of the how you guys. You don't see. That's probably not cooped up. You need to get see you vida crossover utility vehicle up. So. Truth be told at the beginning of this. I was driving around in a Mazda C x nine, twenty, twenty they were like, Hey, miles we love what you're doing. Please try this car out at. Let us know what you think. I'm driving in this thing it is the handling I gotta say is so smooth already fans of your driving period they. Out there on the roads and they were like we gotta get this guy behind the wheel a. Nut, it can do it intuitively response to me as a driver. So like you know how you oversteer like if you're going down away, maybe you you start doing these adjustments with the steering wheel, it's actively trying to make sure you're being as efficient as possible with your steering wheel the exterior design that is so sleek yet aggressive pull up they say, oh my gosh this man is probably a one percent and they go you know what? No, he's probably sensible, and that's why I believe this car really was built for me why yes. I'm a black needs person who likes styling who likes efficiency who likes minimal Minimal flexing if you like to say but still enjoys a bit of elegance. They truly design it like there's an art to have a designer. It's not just a science. No in cars is an art and it's for people like me I like to drive. No I'm not someone out here who needs to be doing three hundred miles an hour but I like the handling of a good vehicle and I love a great both. Sound system which these CV's can come equipped with. So if you want more information on the Mazda C lineup including the first ever see X. Thirty, Goto, Mazda? USA DOT COM slash and don't forget to explore their strongest finance options.

What do you got for me? Anthony? Now that we reached the final week of his truncated regular season. It's fun to look back and find the players who made the great strides in this crazy twenty twenty and those who took a step Berg to back. Baseball savant has a whole section of leaderboards where you can sort by the year to year changes of all their advanced metrics you can see that no surprise. Fernando Takis here has the largest increase in hard hit percentage from last year going from forty four to sixty four percent. But would you be shocked learn that second on that list was braves catcher Travis d'arno who's hitting eighty points over his career average the oils anthony. Santan dare had a breakout campaign prior to season ending injury increasings opiates over one hundred points from twenty nineteen. Nearly, doubling its home run rate is that because he had a league high increase in his launch angle from fifteen degrees to nearly twenty five. Now on the mound, the braves Max freed having cy young type season with a one ninety day and zero hormones allowed. 'cause that'd be because he's decreases average exit velocity by League six point three miles per hour from eighty nine to a beagle eighty, two point nine, and on the other end, we know that Madison Bumgarner is having a season to forget in the desert with a career high seven, thirty, six yard. The. Data tells us that his average fastball velocity has decreased a league high three point seven miles per hour to just a tick under eighty six. More years. What's on that deal? The d-backs might feel a bit snake bitten. Was a big week in the big leagues. For is it fair and now? Shadow league. Dot. COM AND IT'LL BE INSIDER JR Gamble Jacob degrom struck out fourteen Tampa Bay ways Monday night in seven innings while surrendering just to earn runs. And still lost two to one. The mets are struggling. We know that looks like they're not gonNa make the playoffs and he's clearly the only consistent star on that team J. are is it foul or fair to say that degrom regret signing that five year one, hundred, and thirty, seven, point five, million dollars contract, which will keep them in Queens through twenty twenty-five that that is a foul. GROMIT going to get over thirty million dollars per season the next. Five years. So that can soften the pain of play for a team that's only made the playoffs twice since two thousand six and hasn't seen the world series web as nineteen, eighty six. Some would say garments wasting his best here on the mets team that seems more worried about making headlines over rating themselves and pinching pennies and actually trying to go out and win. Sixty game season it's no different. They came in with high hopes and I'll leaving without a playoff berth. Aby, new ownership will improve thing. Wants to win the world series in the near future. Then, maybe you'll have some great. But if he can wait another three years for the mets would be good. That being the face of the franchise in the meantime isn't a bad deal. Well, you have no right now Israeli stack as cash 'cause at thirty two. He's no spring chicken and it'll be pushing forty nearly forty when the contract and. For. Now, you have to enjoy the CY young and the All Star appearances in the big apple with no regrets. Pay. Cash. It's time for trash talk twitter. Your chance to trash anyone or anything in major. League. Baseball. This. Week's winner is at Osu legacy and he tweeted me this Dick Williams and David Bell, they are scrambling to make the playoffs again after missing seven straight years we are tired of the reds and their lack of winning they let go of Dusty Baker and have and have been in the toilet ever since. If you WANNA be on trash talking twitter met Hippie up on my twitter at Rob Parker F s one and you come strong and hard to the MIC. Yes. You too will make it on the podcast. When rob was a newspaper columnist he lived by this motto. If I'm writing I'm rippin let's bring in a writer of broadcaster older new on. Now let's welcome to the PODCAST. One of my favorite people friend of Mine Tim Brown the National Baseball writer for Yahoo Sports Tim Welcome to the podcast buddy. Parkway. Thanks for having me man, how are you mad doing good hanging in I can't believe the baseball season Tim will be over next week in the play in a COUPLA days. After that, let's just jump right into it. One team that most baseball fans a lot of baseball players don't want to see make the playoffs. Is the Houston Astros cheating Houston Astros. But it looks like they're going to get in with the second spot. Believe the most hated team in the playoffs. Yeah I. Think. So you know because I think fans feel like they never got true shot at him. You know this year to to go stand in front of him in ballparks all over the country and let them know how they felt about that. World series. And guys like you know, Bregman and to and springer and all those. So so I I do think that You know first off, they can pitch a little bit on the front end. The bullpen has been young and Funky, but then could be kind of dangerous. They've got enough good arms out front with the started with cranky that that they could not be an easy out but just in terms of yeah The who they are, what they stand for the you know the the again that the world didn't get a clean shot at 'em all season long I think that's the team everyone. A lot of people are gonNA be rooting for to bounce early. No doubt about it. Of course, the dodgers they do the same thing every year they clinched their eighth straight Western division, which is nice. But they haven't won a world series Tim since one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and on. Parkway. Just, something and. You can win all divisions you want. Don't they have to win the world series I mean Especially, the interesting year right because you know. Now Susan after season fall after fall, the talk has been Neil Nineteen, eighty eight and every night you see the Kirk Gibson. Replay in the highlights and all that. How do you feel if you breaks breakthrough in this kind of season? I mean I, simply you certainly take it right because of all of the obstacles, all of the other stuff that came along with this year. but you and I both know it'll come with an asterisk. And even though the the the. The the sort of the dedication to protocols, the grownups during this period you know the isolation now going into a bubble all that stuff I mean I think. It's worthy of mention alongside of sixty game season, sixteen team postseason chaos all this stuff but wouldn't it be funny if this year they broke through and everyone thought you know okay you one but really you know in real year. Our guest is Tim Brown National Baseball columnist for Yahoo Sports. Speaking of the dodgers, mookie Betts. Came over signed a big contract before the season started. Has had a tremendous year for the dodgers, but who would be your national league MVP. Is it Fernando tat tease junior who has put the padres in play. Or is it mookie? Betts? You know this has been a fascinating sort of topic for the last few weeks because just about two and a half weeks ago. Talking about the other League Mike Trout had a day in which he has a PS by seventy two points in one day. And this is in You know the first week of September. So you know you start looking at these things parkway as you you probably always did around September first and thought to yourself. Okay. WHO's The guy? but so much has changed. You know just last week you would have gotten a flood of votes for Jose Abreu with the American League, and now the conversation is ten Anderson's the better player. He's not even the best player on his team maybe Anderson. Fernando, patsies junior has not had a great September if you were to pick it MVP that team right now over two months, it would probably be Manny Machado. Now. mookie Betts has been amazing really amazing especially when you consider that cody bellinger. Here Max Muncie is not hits away. He's hitting the past. But I would say that Freddie Freeman down in Atlanta as of today and stuff could change over the next four or five days is probably the most valuable player the National League wow do you go in Nebraska just one their third? No I got it I loved that. Speaking about off the board, but they're back on the board now. Coming into the season Tim I pick the Yankees and dodgers both have the two best rosters, obviously Aaron Judge and Jean Carlos Dan couldn't stay healthy back now people buried the Yankees before they went off ten wins in a row. They're back they're getting healthier. The day goes on and as we get closer to the play offs. Do they where do the Yankees factor in? Could factor in as A really. Dangerous team. you know I think there's a reason why the raise one that division and that's because they can really pitch and in fact, I pick them to win the division because in a crazy year. where you have to get creative and you have to have gaps and you have to have certain sort of buy INS and all those little dark corners where were you win baseball games? The rays are always really good that, and so the fact that they're going to win the division, not the Yankees not totally surprising. I think that as of right now, the Yankees draw the twins in that first best of three and the twins have something about the Yankees they just cannot get past. that series. So you know I mean it's GonNa. Come down to. Pitches well in the early innings of those Games Garrett Cole right I mean you gotTa Cole and Game One, presumably. and. Then what happens after that Tanaka or half younger kid Garcia you know I, think the bullpen is fine I think that they're going to be able to hit. but I think they're going to have to work just to get through that that division series and as a bit of an older team is a bit of a creaky team in places guessing maybe not a great setup for them not a single day off inside the wildcard series, which is best inside the the division series, which is justified or inside the lcs, which is does to seven. To me sounds like you might want to be a little lighter under feet little younger but you don't what? The Yankees, a punchers chance they could. They could just run you with that power so Why I think, I. Think they're interesting. They will be his name is Tim Brown. National Baseball columnist for Yahu Tim.

Listen, to hell and high water on the iheartradio APP apple podcast or wherever you get your podcasts. Now it's time for some diamond dust with wish TV's Phil Sanchez. Baseball in college now here his LV knowledge. Well. That was fast sorry to believe, but it's the final week of the shortened season by the way. Remember when sports writers and hosts not all but a lot said that there was no way MLB could finish a season. I do as well. But I digress I personally have loved the almost sixty game season in a way that a lot like the NFL wherever game counted and fans are left wanting more now old school baseball traditionalist are going to hate this but I think Major League baseball can learn a lot from this season. And L. D. H. loved it Gear Games love that as well. Seven inning doubleheaders. Yesterday's star up In fact, I would suggest that all games or seven innings now I know that it will never happen but in a day and age where people are busier than ever before and attention spans diminished to the point of no return. Or three and a half sometimes four hour games really a model for success. Now, I know what you're thinking. You probably think it is this guy even like baseball the answer's Yes I actually love baseball and that's why I'm for dramatically changing the game listen if you're over thirty five years old enough. To remember when baseball was can you you definitely old enough to remember that now? Not so much I would argue that baseball has fall into the third most popular sport behind the NFL and NBA and the NHL knocking on the door. The one of those leagues done that baseball hasn't well, they've been willing to adapt over time change the go in short they'd been progressive whereas baseball has been traditional to a fault. If they know you and me we're not going anywhere. Well, we'll always watch baseball Ruben diehards, but the younger generation generation that plays four-night and watches homemade videos on youtube over actual TV. They're not hanging around for six our Yankees Red Sox games on the Saturday afternoon in September I'm starting to break that news to you. They're just not. As the saying goes if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten. For Major League Baseball. That's just not good enough anymore. Now, bringing the closer. Raccoon. Here's why MLB is better than the NFL or NBA, and it isn't even close. Here's another reason why baseball is better than the NBA and the NFL as the play offs or about to start the great thing about the play offs and we've seen this as years gone by is that Players out of nowhere rookies young players can somehow some way make a huge different and come up big time and change the course of play offs and that's the stuff that you like to see, and that's what baseball offers. It's not very often in the other sports where somebody you really really don't know or young player can have that moment and change the course of playoffs but. I could always remember was Bob Welch Against Reggie, Jackson in the world series and he got the Best Reggie and change the fortunes for the dodgers I remember that. But there are a couple players out there to keep an eye on. Dustin may two right handed pitcher from the dodgers the twenty-three-year-old he's a guy that could come up big for the dodgers in the postseason. He's had a really good season for LA. Another right handed pitcher to look out for is Devon Williams from the brewers. After moving from a starting role into the bullpen last year Williams man has emerged as a dominant force out of the pen in twenty twenty. Coming into. Wednesday. Posting a zero point, three, nine era and a zero point. Six One whip with get this forty seven strikeouts in twenty three innings. That's eighteen point. Four strikeouts per nine innings just a twenty six year old has a devastating change up one of the best pitchers pitch is we've seen in two, thousand and twenty. So there you go look out for the kids in the postseason have an impact. In the words of New York TV Legend, the late bill, Jorgensen thanking you for your time this time until next time. Rob Parker out. This could be an insect parker next weekend same time. Zai-qing. What's going on I know it's been a while since you may have been out of the house living life like you used to. But you know what? There is the open road that still is out there and you should probably reintroduce yourself to it in a Mazda. I was lucky enough to drive around in a nine, the last couple months and a half. To, say the C. UV Lineup Mazda is pretty wonderful. These vehicles are masterfully crafted.

Feel better be energized be focused via warrior, so we're gonna talk about today today is going to be my first movie review episode. I love to watch movies. I absolutely love to watch movies. And I got very inspired by listening to I listen to the Kevin Smith podcast Fatman on Batman big fan of Kevin Smith. And I really like, it's it's it's particular taste, right? If you're not a comic book fan, you probably won't like it. Not a Kevin Smith fan. You probably won't like it. It's very unique an-. And people are kinda shocked at that. I listened to it. It doesn't would Kevin Smith, and I probably hang out together. And go to go to the range go to the gym together. Probably not. But I'm a fan of fan of his work. I think he has a very interesting mind. And I I like his take on things, and he does move your views. He did a great. Our did a great review of avengers Infinity war that I really liked. He did one of on the spider verse, which I took my kids to see a movie really enjoyed it. And I liked the way breaks down. He literally just tells you the whole movie and kind of interjects his thoughts individual scenes, he's got an I for it. And I I really appreciate that. So that's kind of the style that I'm gonna use. And what I'm gonna talk about today based on the suggestion of from an Email from under us a border patrol agent was asking me about the scar movies. I'm gonna talk about the seconds Cario movie. Sicario the day this'll Dotto and spoiler alert. If you haven't seen the film. Then I'm gonna spoil it for you. Because I'm going to basically tell you everything that happens because I'm gonna go almost seen by seeing here. But I'm going to interject a Mattel, you what I think and give you my honest opinion on everything that occurred in that movie, and, you know, take it for for what you will this might be your Cup of tea. Hopefully, it's an episode you listen to in it's entirety. But I'm probably going to do some more of these and hopefully they'll be on films. Right. When they come out just because something that I like to do, and it's like to share with you. You know, not I'm not gonna do on every movie that comes out, but on films that I think I have a unique take on because of my life experience. I'm going to talk about so it's we're gonna talk about today. So I form us. I'm gonna say the best thing about this movie. Emily blunts characters not in it. So this isn't necessarily about Emily blunt alum, not real crazy about Emily anyway. But her character was week. All right. The the first Sakaria move. It was great. But really so her character was a representation of kind of establishment and public naievety. Right. That this that this is a war. This is a gruesome, bloody war. There are horrors going on in the narcotrafficking world. And if you're not prepared to stomach that if you're not prepared to fight them on a certain level than you're not a quip to be in this fight. You have no business being and that was pretty much summed up in the last scene of that movie where Benicio del Toro's character Leandro, you know, basically could kill her and says, you know, you're just base, your sheep. You don't belong here. This, you know, this is where wolves hang out you need to go away. And and that was true. She was completely. And she knew it that was that was the dawning of that in that last scene is that he was absolutely right. She was completely ill equipped to be in that war. So thankfully, it doesn't pick. With her character, basically picks up. It's more fast paced movie, I felt than the last one maybe not as gruesome course, of the last month started out pretty gruesome. Yeah. In fact, I would say it's not not as gruesome because there was some pretty pretty very accurate things. You know, the the bodies being found in the in the in the house in the drywall the bodies hanging from bridges just south of the border in warez. These were all accurate depictions of modern day events that are happening in real time. So this was just as accurate, but it kinda spared you some of that. Because at that point was made in the first film and kudos to them for not feeling that they needed to top themselves on that. There's videos out there. You can see of actual cartel cartels, cutting throats, decapitating women and everything else that are exceedingly gruesome. So if you have any doubt, you know, this this was not Hollywood hyperbole by any in any sense of the word. This was accurate. So let's jump right in. We'll talk about it. So the movie starts, basically, what you're looking at in the in the opening scene of the film is you've got a group of migrants in the desert, obviously, this this is a group of illegal aliens moving into the US, they're being tracked by the border patrol. There's a helicopter watching on thermal calling out positions vehicle, surround him Boral agents on quad motorcycles, and in in four drive vehicles, basically surround him, and what happens is what typically happens is typically, and we know that and I know this from having been involved with the task force and and from talking to border patrol agents. It's what still goes on when you catch them. They give up. All right. They're already tired. They're already hungry. They walked along way. And and they know there's really no doubt. They're not going to run across desert. Right. You can't outrun thermal. You cannot run flare. Right. You're gonna get caught. So there's no point in taking off and running you give up you get put on a bus. You get taken some. Place. You get a meal you get a shower you get a bed to sleep in. And you get a hearing, and you and you may be told. All right. We're releasing we're gonna release you and come back and show for your hearing later, you know, the what you've heard about is true catch and release program. So it this is portrayed very accurately. In the film that everybody just basically gets underneath put their hand give most of them. It's probably not even their first rodeo, right? They've they've been through this before they've been caught before. So they know exactly what to do and even shows, and I thought this was interesting though, kinda kinda gets missed. There's actually an Asian couple mixed in there with them that that you can see. But one thing that happens. It's a little bit different is one one guy breaks away, one guy breaks away from the pack. He's not giving up and right away that that that set my radar off. That's so, you know, watching this. That's somebody with somebody to hide right? That's that's somebody who's carrying something. He doesn't wanna get found or for whatever reasons breaking away, and then he takes off his bag and he. Fumbling through it and. Something about that setup. I I had a little bit of a legit PTSD moment right there because I knew what was getting ready to happen. Just knew in my gut was getting ready to happen. And sure enough we get the bar, and we get the explosion, right? This guy sets himself sets himself off blows himself up. So this guy was a somebody from the Middle East terrorists had infiltrated. This the small caravan of migrants, go north into the US and then got rolled up but decided he wasn't going to be taken. So he suicide by explosion next shot is the morning after sun's coming up there doing the investigation in the course of kind of looking through the area. There's three prayer rugs all face towards mecca right there. So what that tells you right there only one guy got caught? So there's at least two other guys out. There may be more, right? That's backed up by the very next scene. Which shows us a scene in Kansas City in store, you see three individuals get out of a car. The obviously look nervous there weren't coats. They go in wordlessly. They all split up. Go to separate parts of the store. They're all suicide bombers great thing about this scene. The thing that I really liked about. Is it really conveys the the tension? There's very very palpable tension right before this occurs. And you know that it's inevitable. You know that it's going to happen. And some for some reason, you even know there's not going to be some white horse moment where one of them sees a kid that reminds his daughter and decided not to do it or citizen notices something wrong. Hey, Mr. and saves everything you, you know, that this is this is going to happen, and it's inevitable. It's about to go down. It really good seen really conveys the tension. Very very well. I remember after this movie came out, and I saw it, and I put a little blurb on Twitter and a lot of people attack this movie saying, oh, it it perpetuates the paranoia completely unfounded. And so last night, I reached the movie, and I also went and looked around on snow, which I don't consider to be a reputable site and some of the things and snow as a couple headlines where comp- it's it lists. You know, these claims is ISIS says is ISIS. Coming up through the the US Mexico border faults. But then when it goes on to list, how its faults it actually does not the headline is one thing. And then what it's saying is fault is a complete other thing. So what they're saying faults is is a very specific thing about a training camp like south of El Paso, but they don't dispute any of the other things then there was another thing on snow that it said either misleading or mixture, right? And it's a hundred the report is one hundred percent true. And this one was specifically dealing with in October two thousand eighteen Guatemalan authorities apprehended and deported. Just over one hundred Middle Eastern illegal aliens, they were legally in in Guatemala. They were all headed north said they were going to the US they detain them. They got all their names and did some background research and all of them, and according to the president Aguado mall. They all had what he describe. His strong links to ISIS right strong. Links ties is none of them were on on any most wanted list or anything else, but they all had strong, very distinct links to ISIS, and they were all deported as I said, they were travelling north there, and they even told the Guatemalans at their plan was to reach the United States will the reason snow said this was a mixture was because these guys were detained and deported a week before the caravan arrived, right you remember the caravan from last year in two thousand eighteen and snow said, well, it was reported. They were part of the caravan. They were never part of the care of them. And there they were week ahead of the caravan. So therefore its faults. It's like, okay. You kind of splitting hairs. No. Yeah. They weren't part of the caravan. They were kind of in the advanced party for the caravan. Right. Because at that point, the caravan was still pretty new, you know, of course, the caravan started, you know, you know, Hundres Guatemala and down in Central America. The fact that these guys were in advance of the caravan for some reason made it not true. This is a. The reason that I don't like snow is they'll they'll take one thing in their, you know, man, beheads man, reportedly beheads his wife because she voted for Donald Trump, and it'll say faults, and it'll say the man beheaded his wife, but it was because they were having an argument about bundled Trump, and she refused to make him dinner. So he beheaded her because she'd make him dinner, and that's not a true story. But this is how snow likes to split hairs. And that's reason I have a problem with that website. Just to give you guys another indication of how people again disputed that. This was a real threat in November two thousand eighteen there were and this was in the caravan. There was a large group of Bangladeshi Muslims, and this was reported by one of his shown. Okay. So this is this is true. We know this to be true. I'm sorry that we know that they were Bangladeshi Muslims in the caravan. But this is not the one I'm talking about the ones I've talked about were captured in Texas in two thousand eighteen Bangladesh for those of you don't know is even though it's an Asian country. Not a Muslim militia in country is predominantly Muslim and has very active al-qaeda and Islamic state's splinter groups, very, very active. Okay. So the fact that there are Bangladeshi Muslims being arrested in Texas. And we know there were Bangladeshi Muslims in the caravan as reported by one of his Sean that tells you that this threat is still ongoing, and they might. Not necessarily be Middle Eastern. Okay. The huge misconception that that Islam is only associated with the Middle East. And that's quite frankly, not the case is Llamas. A world is a global religion. It's I believe the largest religion on the face of the earth. You know, if you go geographically, there's probably more Buddhists if you go population wise, but geographically, I think Islam as everything beat. The bahamas. I think are ever in every country and most people haven't heard of the behind their very peaceful religion. And that's that's probably why you've never heard of them as far back as two thousand fourteen. They were finding prayer rugs. And Korans on these coil day routes in the southern states in the on the border states. So this is a real threat. This is something that's been going on for while. And and I really bugs me when people diminish that because you know, if we have a porous border, if I you know, I'm I'm with the call red hat guy. Right. So, and that's not a I'm not talking about a Maga hat when I talk about that is when one of my jobs in SF, especially when I was working Z until sergeant was to look at a plan and look at it from the enemies perspective and see how to deconstruct it. And if I were looking to infiltrate this country, I one hundred percent do it through our southern border because I live in Texas guy, a family on the border. I family on both sides of the border both both through marriage and through blood. Okay. That that that's for those that you don't know. My wife's Mexican American. Both. My kids obviously are half Mexican American. My paternal grandmother was. Part Mexican American. I don't know how much my ancestry d- ancestry dot com. Says I'm like six percent or something like that. But I know I have I have extended family on both sides of the border along the border, and this is it's a porous border. It's it's an issue. And it's something we could talk about again in his own show for quite some time. Jumping right back into the movie. I didn't mean to to get off of that too much. So next scene. You see is a is a press conference with secretary secretary of defense. He's played by Matthew Modine. Basically, he is the trope for the typical your your what we call the Hollywood hawk trope. Okay. So Alan Alda loves to play this trope because he's a far leftist. Richard Dreyfuss is played this trope a few times. So basically, this is the trope of, you know, on the secretary of defense, I know better than are or whatever the, you know, it's different from every movie, and you know, we're going to kill the bad guys at all costs. Everyone is expendable what the American public doesn't know won't hurt it, and and everything else and Modena's basically playing that character to a tea it's pretty transparent, I thought it was it kind of diminished, honestly, his performance I thought kind of diminished the movie because he doesn't he doesn't. Act the role very well. And I think Matthew Modine agreed actor, but I I don't think he brought his game to the role. Probably because he was trying too hard a little bit. Anyway, didn't care for it. After that, there's a scene again. This is my my second legit PTSD moment. During the film is there's a night freefall. There's a a special operations team doing a night jump halo insertion into Somalia really stood up the hairs on the back of my neck. If you've never done a night full tactical. Halo insertion can tell you. That's as close as you're ever going to get is watching that movie watching Sicario day, the day of the soul Datta with the sound tune turned up and watching that particular scene because it really it really. Brought back a lot of real moments for me. So. Shows them freefalling shows going through their opening sequence. Next thing you see is they're taking down a target. And basically what they're doing is. They're taking down a there's a known terrorist slash associated terrorist. Who's you many who they take down? Next thing you see is that individual who they captured and they they basically ice everybody else in the house. So he's the he's their target. Everybody else goes down. They tag him. They bag him. And he goes to camp Lemonier Djibouti, which is is a real installation in the horn of Africa, not a bad depiction of it in the movie makes it actually look a little bit more comfortable than it. Probably his were reintroduced at this point to Josh Brolin character, Matt graver, he basically goes into interrogate. This you many puts up a laptop computer with some real time drone footage and makes a little remark in there to the guy looks overseas some water bottles. There's a little little side remark about waterboarding, and no we're not stateside. I'm not limited to that. Basically trying to put the fear God into this guy during the early stages. The interrogation shows him real life. Live Drome footage of of the guy's brother and says, basically, if you don't tell me what I wanna know. I'm gonna take out your brother guy, says your bluff and calls. His bluff loses gets on the horn says you're go they take out his brother so house blows up next thing the guy freaks out a little bit. And he says, look you got a big family switches the drone footage to another drone shows a vehicle going down the roads. Here's your other brother cuts from that to the debriefing the next morning graves on the phone with his superior back. Stateside sitting with with two two guys from two officers from J soccer next home. And he basically they're they're briefing. You know, the information that he got which is they got the name of a ship. They know who owns the ship then who paid for the transport, and they knew what port they went through. So basically now they know exactly how these radical Islamic terrorists got to the United. Dates they know what ship. They know what port and they're able to follow the trail and figure out who financed. All that. So last thing that kinda cuts to is grave is going to be on his way back to the states because there's more work to do. Then there's a scene where we meet. So there's two characters in the move in the film that I just completely didn't care for Modine's. Character of already mentioned, this is the second character that I completely didn't care for and it's kid named Miguel lives in mcallen, Texas. He's a high school kid he gets recruited recruited by his cousin to work for the moros cartel as a day in case, you don't know it the cartels in their entirety control the border. So if the cartels decided there would be no illegal immigration tomorrow. There would be no illegal immigration tomorrow. Okay. The flood of humanity. That comes across is a great mask to get the drugs through. To divert resources away from stopping the drugs. You know, some are packed in overland some come through tunnels some are flown low level in planes. But the fact of the matter is when you have to watch the flood of humanity. You don't have time to to watch for for the Cox that are coming across. So the cartels love the flow of illegal immigration. If you didn't know that you must have been living under a rock. So we learn basically in this scene that MacGill's only motivation is money because that's the one question that he has for his cousin is how much does it pay. Right. And this isn't about there's no there's no establishing of he has some motivation through a a loss as a child or you know, feeling that you know, he's he's the kid who never measured up. So he wants to prove himself or he just wants to get out of this town. There's none of that. There's just you know, how much how much money's in it for me. So Miguel's motivation is money period. And he's again, he's not a sympathetic character. By any means as a ton of characters in the movie that are sympathetic. Some you might have thought otherwise initially be kinda come around Miguel's attorney from the beginning. And he's turned the end of the movie, and that's I don't know the name of the actor the plays him. So and I never I try to never associate roles with actors so actually. The fact of how much I dislike Miguel to this kid is probably a really good actor because he portrays him perfectly somebody that you just have basically no sympathy for its none. What's even his worst moment in the film? I had no sympathy for this character. So then we cut back and we catch up with with Matt graver again, he's in a car. He's talking to his boss. I think her name is Cynthia. She's kind of the second Hollywood trope that comes up in this. So she's the Hollywood trope of the Mackin CIA officer of the will get the job done at all cost. People are pawns. Everyone is expendable. You know, I'm pulling the strings behind the scenes, you know, we're historic were really the ones that run everything people. Just don't know it. It's just a game. We just happened to play a game that's played with human pieces. She's basically that complete trope. And I don't know the name of the actress she was the Steve pearls girlfriend in the forty year old. Virgin, I I'm sorry. I can't remember any of the actress. So they're in the car. They're talking about the fact they've determined. You know, this is this all boils down to what they call the raise cartel is the one who financed the terrorists, then they're going to meeting with secdef where we learn president is basically declared by the strict definition of terrorism is declared the drug cartels to terrorist organizations, which they are by by any definition the drug cartels. If you don't think the drug cartels terrorist organizations talked to anybody that lives in cartel territory and ask them how they are terrorized daily by the cartels cartels, use the same tactics that the Taliban used that multiple terrorist organizations views they they rule through fear that is one hundred percent true. So that's that's true is and that's not a shocking that's not on my the president's gone off the rails in declared, the Metairie organization, the cartels are terrorist organizations. Period. So the plan that is formed at that time because what they wanna do is. They don't wanna go down and metal in and do a bunch of stuff in Mexico. They want the cartels to take care of each other. They figured they take themselves out that it will solve this problem of the raise cartel financing and helping these terrorists so they wanna create war. They wanna start, you know. And there's always there's kind of an uneasy truth that exists in the cartels through most periods. They wanna basically completely get that dissolved and get them in in full open warfare. So they devise a plan to that and graves the one that comes up with the idea, basically says if you kidnap prints, it gets the king to go to war, and they know that res- has a daughter and that if they kidnap her he'd be willing to go to war to avenge that. And he says if you wanna if you wanna do this. We're going to have to get dirty and this is. I gotta give major props to the director on this scene. So I'm gonna I'm gonna put my my Hollywood hat on for second. Is it shows graver and he's he's wearing he actually dresses alike. I dress, right. He's always wearing kind of. I could I could easily wear this shirt in a swamp or somewhere drive in a in a Land Cruiser in the Congo. But I'm in an office in Washington DC, the secretary of defense, and I'm wearing this this frumpy field shirt, basically. And you know, he he looks. He looks grumpy he looks like he just got out of the Bush possibly and across from him sitting at a table in a neatly pressed white shirt and and very expensive tie with a coffee Cup of fine. China with a nice gold rim around. It is the secretary of defense they're setting up the contrast here for you that this is the the. Tissue doesn't get his hands dirty and the guy who's storage has always gotten his hands dirty and graver says if you want to do this we're gonna have to get dirty and the the line that this is the only line that Modine delivers in the whole movie that actually liked he says dirty is exactly why you're here. And that that's an important 'lustration is again, he's the politician who doesn't get his hands dirty depends on guys like graver who made a career out of getting dirty to get dirty. But he also sees graver and anyone like him as being completely expendable. And that's that's pretty clear. So Brolin's character then meets with the there's a scene where he meets with the head of contracting company because they're gonna contract out most of these assets, they're not going to get him. From in house, basically tells the guy what he needs as far as aircraft vehicles and personnel. There's a great sequence. Then where graver actually might be Garver, man. I apologize. If I've been screwing that up. I'm just going to call him Brolin from here on out. So there's a great sequence where Brolin's character goes to bring benico Toro's character back into the fold. That's all a hundred right? So a basically goes in and positions himself in his apartment, and there's a great sequence where one hundred knows somebody's there. So he's coming up the back way. And he put a sign he tapes assigned roles taped up a sign says, I'm in your living room. Don't shoot me. Basically basically comes in. You know, they they reacquaint he tells them what the plan is. So the plan is that you know, I they need to take out somebody in the Montemurro cartel and make it look like the raise cartel did it because that way the kidnapping will look like retribution for that. Right. So it doesn't otherwise the question would be well, wait hold on a second. Why would they just were were it an uneasy peace? Why would they just for any reason? Why would they just kill or rather? Why would they just kidnap? Raises daughter so all a hundred tasked with that. So he does. So that's a really cool seeing they do it in broad daylight. He's wearing a ski mask and the mountain Moro's cartel leader. Tries to great big fat dude tries to make a getaway. Stumbles glasses fall off and a hundred picks up. His glasses goes over to him. Handsome glasses has improved his glasses on so that he can pull his ski mask. So he can know exactly who kill them. We know for the first movie, of course, that all the cartels know who been Toro is right at least the the higher ups do right? Any he somebody who's feared by all the news called the Colombian? So he knows at the moment of dying exactly who killed him. But the spin that they put on the spin that the the news agencies in Mexico put on it is that this cartel cartel that it was the rays cartel. So now, they're set up to do the. Kidnapping so Brolin's team is position for that. And we get the return of the character forcing who's the actor Jeffrey Donovan who's in the show, burn notice. Which is great show. If you never saw it. I only made it through. I think the first couple of seasons. But it was a really good really good show. I love his character. His character reminds me to a t of former delta sergeant major that I deployed with just his he he looked is the thin build. But you know, he's a bad ass just as mannerisms, and then he wears a ridiculous looking mustache and and thick Victorian birth control glasses, but just doesn't even give shit because he's a bad ass. He just totally reminds me of one individual particular and a lot of individuals. I've served with of course of my career. And I'm glad they wrote his character back because I like it. So the whole team Alejandro forcing graver they're making ready to kidnap Isabel Rey is. So that's raise his daughter. So this is going to send the they do the kidnapping you get introduced to her. She's in a fight at school all the kids there. No who father is one of them makes a comment about they have a fight. That's a really good seen as sets up. So this the young actress the that that plays her really good actress probably gonna see really good things from holds own scenes with Brolin, hold your own and scenes with Benicia they'll Toro. Really believable character and a sympathetic character. So a lot of exit a lot of the characters sympathetic, and this is one of them. So they do the kidnapping. They leave a message with the bodyguard that this is retribution. Right. So makes perfect sense. Right. We're we're telling them that this is retribution because you killed one of our cartel leaders. So they expect for him to take that message to his boss, right? So they take the girl. Back. They basically take the girl to a safe house in Texas and at the safe house in Texas, they stage a rescue like making making quotation marks here. So what they do is. They basically put her in a back room. They go out. They take off what they're wearing. They put on DA jackets. They stage a take down to the house. Rescuing her. So she thinks whoever was kidnapped me the DA took him down. And I've now been rescued so now she's actually riding in the car with Benicio del Toro person who kidnapped her, but she sees him as the rescuer at this point, which is kind of cool. Let's see where am here have track. To the okay irio. So there's a couple of scenes here. I might got stuff a little bit out order I made some notes so that I would get this. All right. Okay. So. Okay. Yep. Okay. I'm I'm on track here. So where we get back. Now is they they make the decision that they're gonna take the girl back into Mexico in the middle of monta Moro's cartel country. So that's the rival cartel against her father. Right. And I'm sorry. There's a there's a scene in there too were brawling his watching the real time Drome footage of where they left the bodyguards and the first police officer on seeing talks to the bodyguards and then kills them. Right. So we know he's on the take the question is who's E ON the take four is he killing them because they're raise people, and and he's with the Monto moros cartel or is he raised guy, and he's just cleaning up. So he takes them out shoots them before the cops arrive, and then they're tracking his cell phone. And there's a scene where they basically see him on his cellphone so track and who is calling and they say, there's the king. So basically they've they've tracked the head of the cartel that he's reporting to so they're planning to take. The girl I said back into Mexico lever in the middle of Montemar owes country. They make some arrangements with Maxine government official. She'll basically be at a police station there. They'll say that you know, they'll make up some story about where she was found and this will lure raises people into Monteiro's country, and they're gonna have to fight their way out. So this is where this is where they will use her as bait to initiate full-scale war the thought process being I understand this. Because this makes sense is he might be willing to write his daughter off if she's gone, and they don't know where she is. And and say, no, I'm not gonna take vengeance. Because this point she's gone. What is there to be gained by that? But you know, kind of like in the godfather where you know, Vito Corleone agreed to forego the vengeance. Because of all the bad things that it would cause when Sonny was killed said. I will forgo the vengeance. Right. So you don't want. That mindset. You don't under forgo the vengeance. You want to see you want some bait to lure amount. So that's what they're going to do. They're gonna lose. Or the raise cartel into Montemurro country. They're gonna have to fight their way out boom full-scale warfare. So as they're planning this. They're actually a little a little mall a little food court area as they're leaving is really intere-. There's an interesting scene graver forcing and Ali Han Jo or in the car, forcing driving all Honjo is riding shotgun and Miguel. The kid comes walking across the parking lot. And they almost hit him and he acts like little asshole smacks on the hood says watch where you're going. Berlin has some choice words for them. He moves along basically puffing up his chest trying to be a tough guy. But in that scene. It's important because it comes around later, he makes icon tact with a one hundred and all the hundred gives them the smile that. And you can tell the the thought that is portrayed there is I could kill you in a second. Just as just as soon as looking you. You are nothing to me. I could kill you. And. Again, talking about how good actor this the the guy played Miguel as you can it literally looks like like his entire body goes Colt. Like oh shit. Like, I've just looked into the eyes of the devil. And he moves on. Then there's a scene where we see McGill being taken into Mexico to his first run as a day, he meets the meets the boss gets established. So that's that's established for later. This is an important scene too. Because what it shows is very large groups of migrants of people want across the border marshalling in these areas. And basically, it's like an abandoned warehouse with a buses everything else where all these people come. They show up. They sit in this marshaling area. They pay a fee to the day. They're loaded on buses they're taking to the drop off points crossing points. That's real that. Is that is exactly how it goes down. These points are well known like U S border patrol agents. They know exactly on the other side of the border where all these marshalling areas. Are they know as traffic increases in these marshalling areas as soon as all right? The people have been marshalling in this area for a couple of days. We have a night with no moon coming up in two nights. They're all gonna come flooding across and these are the points where they're all going to these are. Well, they're practically like highways the Mexican authorities on that side. No about this too. They're well aware that these are marshalling people that are getting ready to cross the border nothing ever gets done about it. Okay. It's it's an industry it, really. It's like it's like lining up to get on the buses to go to. Disneyland. Graves team loads up Isabel on the north side of the border in the next scene. And they're in a caravan bunch of humvees and they're heading into Mexico to drop off. And this is a kind of a key scene where she's asking questions to both Alejandro angrier. And she knows something's up. She knows that. This isn't things are not what they seem. And she she that's pretty evident to her. She's she's pretty savvy in the course of the convoy and they're doing this under escort by the Mexican federales. Federal he's double cross them. And there's an ambush. That's involve federalize that are in the come in the convoy, turn on them. And also there's another individual couple individuals at a pickup truck with some RPG's trying to take him out so ambush ensues firefight. Ensues they fight their way out they come out on top. There's a standoff with the remaining federalize kinda realize they did something really really stupid and. And for a moment. You think the federalize are going to give up and then one of them gets excited and pops off shot hits forcing right in his plate. And boom, they're dead. And so now the team is going to extract. But they notice that Isabelle in the firefight took off so. Graders. Initial thought is we gotta go after all the hundred puts the Khyber on that. He says Noman all stay you extract, the team, I'm all tracker. So he takes off track interrupt up cross the desert. She's kinda wandering aimlessly across the desert and. Edited it. Will where women here area? So she runs across the desert. She inadvertently as she's coming out on the road. There's a pickup truck there. She doesn't know. It's actually one of the guys it was setting up the ambush while guys at the RPG. So she's inadvertently kind of blundered into him. He's grabner. They're struggling and then all a hundred is catching up to a run at that point. We put the bullet in the guy's head tells her to get in the truck and they take off flash. Over to Texas, the Texas side of the border graves, boss cynthia's pissed off right? Where we are. Now is the you have a bunch of dead federalize. It's all over the news. There's reports that there were humvees involved. All my God. What is this? Are we in Mexico? We have troops in Mexico. What's going on? So the administration has completely lost its nerve. And they say it's time to pull the plug on all this. That's a pretty key scene for a lot of reasons because Brolin his. Pretty incense. He's like don't you understand? You know, she said, you know, you were there to start a war with the cartel. Not kill kill federalize. It's the whole point is the federalize are the cartel K. This is there's so much corruption at so many levels of Mexican government law enforcement, they are the cartel. There is no difference. Okay. We killed cartel soldiers. They just happen to be wearing uniforms. Okay. They're they're drawn dual paychecks paychecks from from from the Mexican government paychecks from the cartel there's but they're cartel soldiers. Typical Hollywood trope kinda line there. You know, don't you get it? We're not we're not really it's not really here to make a difference type thing, you should know that you've been in the business long enough because the the specific line that he says this is why nothing ever changes, and I dealt with the level of frustration. There having worked three decades in government bureaucracy. So we catch back up with all the hundred Isabel, they they've ditched the vehicle they find a little house, and they protest the family. It's a deaf-mute couple living there. And here we see all all the hundred breaks into some sign language communicating with the with the husband, and we learn a little bit about his past. We learned that he learned sign language because his daughter who we know was murdered by the cartel was death. And that's why no sign language. This is a pretty pivotal scene. Because this this humanizes all a hundred not only for us. But it humanizes all the hundred very much for Isabelle's character. Because when they're in the vehicle, even when he saves her life. She's like oh shit. You know, now, I it's just a matter of who's captured me because I don't trust you either. This is very humanizing. And there's a there's some pivotal scenes right afterwards where they have exchanges. Yeah. As this families agreed basically to show. Alter them till they can get ready to try to cross the border that establishes their relationship. And it's I can only imagine for a teenager trying to a scene with initial Toro. Who produces those were mazing actor one of the best actors of our generation my opinion, cutting back to Texas video conference with secretary of defense Modine character is as predictable as you would expect. He's bureaucratically second-guessing finger-pointing. We wanna wash our hands at this whole thing, you know, the, you know, basically, everyone is expendable basically gives the order since since the raise girl witnessed everything she has to be terminated can't be allowed to be brought back across the border. This of course, puts graver in a bad spot all hundred calls on a sat phone is. Like, amen. I know we've been friends for a long time. But this is where we are you're on your own, and I'll hundred takes it in stride, man. He knows the deal. He's this guy. This is a character who has no luge. About how expendable he is about that. He's a potential liability. He understands the la-, by liability situation of protecting Isabel. He totally understands that. But again because he's now been humanized for us a little bit. We know about his past with his daughter. He certainly obviously in the course of the story sees that in Isabel, and he's looking to protect her, and it humanizes character quite a bit. And then we see the conflict in Brolin's character. You know, this is. This is my friend in. This is all I have have have been through a lot of shit together. And you expendable is one thing. But, you know, this is my friend and y'all get a sense that he he maybe sees point. She's why he's doing what he's doing. But you know, he's in the end of the day. He's still companyman. So he's got to do what he's gotta do. And he knows that when they're going to be watching the border, and when they're paying that they're getting close they're gonna have to do something about it. So all a hundred Isabelle. In little bit of a disguise so to speak. They've changed her clothes. And I think maybe I don't remember he shaves or not she cuts. Her hair puts on a ball cap. They go to that same marshaling area that you saw earlier in the movie where everybody groups up, and you know, sits sits in family units in the dirt way to be picked up by buses taking the border. They pay their fee, but Miguel is come back to do another run again and Miguel sees all hundred and spite of the cowboy hat and everything else you recognize them. So what does he do? He goes and tells his boss, hey, I saw that guy a guy in a parking lot in Texas right in in a government or rent, a car, whatever ah guys. Now what he seems. So they load them all up on the buses they act like they're going to the drop off point. And then as it turns out the particular bus that they're on everybody on that bus. Our foot soldiers for the day and the immediately draw their guns pointed at all Andre get him to give up his weapon. They interrogate. Gate one hundred Isabel separately. So they learn what's going on. They figure out who she is. So they make the decision that she's worth a lot of money right either to her father or to the other cartel either way. So they're going to ransom her off. And they're gonna have to kill a hundred. Meanwhile, you see graves team coming out of the. Coming out of their kind of their up center getting in their Blackhawks, and they're headed south with anticipation that he's got a pretty grim. Look on his face. Am I'm probably gonna have to kill my friend. And I'm gonna have to kill kill young girl. So the the coyotes in Mexico load them up they they take them to a desolate spot pull them out. There's a bunch of them around Miguel included they put some type of bag over a hundred head. They tape it up with duct tape and the head coach Koyo Tei gives the gun to a guy about MacGill's age says are kill him. And he points the gun. He just can't do it. He lowers the gun. He has the gun back. Kobe. So co two kills him kills the kid then kills gives a gun to Miguel. So now, it's MacGill's Miguel's turn. So he's obviously conflicted about it. He pulls the trigger shoots all the hundred and the head all hundred falls blood gushing out of the bag, and they take Isabel in a two car convoy, and they're taking her wherever they're going to take her to to arrange for ransom for her graves team. Knows everything that's going on. And again, you kind of see the conflict there with Brolin is buddy just got killed. All right. Well, that that's that cats out of the bags nothing. I can do with that the objective now is where's the girl? So they they have real time intelligence on exactly what vehicle she's in what seat she's in. So they're gonna go take down the convoy, and again, the order was given that you know, she has to be terminated. So that's what they're going to do. Shows miguel. He's in the back of a pickup truck and everybody's like high five him because he got his first kill the kid looks like he's about to puke illiteracy looks like he's about to vomit on himself. And he ends up. He can't stand to be around these guys. He's so torn up by the fact that he's just taken a life. He jumps out of the truck. I think he's in tears when he does. So and the convoy keeps going, and that's the only thing that saves meals life because here comes area lamb Bush out of the Blackhawks they take them down in in fashion that you might have seen in Black Hawk Down. Kill everybody, retrieve Isabel and graver instead of killer. He picks her up he's taking the Blackhawk enforcing going. What are you doing? He said he said fuck it. She's going into witness protection and loads around the Black Hawk and there's a staredown between the two of them as they're flying out. You know, she's looking at him and he looks away. Yeah, you're right. I can't I can't reconcile my own conscious conscious. In this that I let my friend die. But, you know, at least one good thing in the, you know, he saved her and she's going to go into witness protection. Cuts back one hundred and he's laying there and he starts moving. And I kind of knew this was going to happen when I saw. And when I saw it the first time theater I bit my tongue to not say to my wife. I knew that he wasn't going to be dead. Sure. Enough you shot in the jaw. He gets the bag off gets up makes his way actually to the ambush site retrieves a weapon and takes one of the vehicles, and and drives away. So the way portrayed the wound and the amount of blood and everything else. I thought actually was fairly realistic. You know, just from a medical perspective. So he drives away. He's driving away in the vehicle, obviously in dire. Straits at one point. He pulls over you think you might die right there on the side of the road. But. He's driving away at the end. So then the next thing we see is that same food court in that same mall. That was we we saw a couple of scenes earlier on where Beguel would go to get get his marching orders and his payments, and where they had the meeting and the running with him in the parking lot. And it says it's a year later Miguel's looks a little bit different. He's got a bunch of TAT's to include neck tattoos. Nothing makes things go well on a job interview like neck tattoo. I can tell you and he's walking in they're walking around pretty cocky, obviously feels like he's pretty bad motherfucker now been doing this for a while making money. He's obviously pretty happy feeling pretty good about it. So he walks into the little room behind this little restaurant where he normally meets the guy that that gets stuff from and I'll hundreds in there, and he about shits his pants. He's just looking at him. Like, oh my God. I killed you year ago Otit. And they'll Toro again, great actor looks at them gives him a smart tells them to sit down, and then the movie ends where he says. So you wanna be a Sicario, which is the were case, you don't know the title of the films is is a is how they describe hitmen com. Sakari it's comes from a Roman a Roman title from ancient times. But it's it's used in modern parlance for cartel hitmen. He says so you wanna be a Sicario. And then he goes and close the door and says, let's talk about your future. And again, I hated MacGill's care. I love all hundred character. And I see what his motivation is. It was motivation is ending his family. And just you know, he's he's like Batman is basically he's the bad guys have to pay it all costs MacGill's motivation is money, you know, Miguel's motivation for killing another human being we've basically peer. Pressure not wanting to get shunned stead MacGill's character is completely contemptible. I cannot stand that character. I wanted the movie to end with McGill killing him like his first order of business. So I hope if they do third movie I hope to God that he's not bringing Miguel back as his like apprentice, if he does they're gonna have to re they're gonna have to show me a lot to make meals character redeemable because I thought the character was completely lacking in redeeming qualities, and again, you know, kudos to the actor who played him because you know, it takes a really good actor to play it took Hopkins to play Hannibal Lecter, right? Who just scared the shit out of you anybody who plays a contemptible character, not not even necessarily villain. But just a slime that you don't like that's it says a lot about an actor. It's like. George costanza. Right. It's like the epic loser. Which is a testimony to what a great actor. He was Jason Jason Alexander. What a great actor was that. He could play such a loser. And you could be so annoyed looking at Costanza like Jordan. I just can't stand you because as Sanders such a great actor so again kudos to the actor the played Miguel because you you played shit bag to the tea, and it was really convincing. And I I really I wanted to see your character killed, and I hope you take that as a compliment. So that's all I got for this review of the movie Sicario. If you already saw the movie it was a little bit of fun, remembering the move. You haven't seen the movie, I probably spoiled it for you.

Hey, welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb and I'm Joe McCormick so excited. It's my favorite time of the year. It's October. which is my favorite month of the anyway, but it's also my favorite time of the year at work because it's monster month here on stuff to blow your mind. That's right when we devote the entire month of October and sometimes a little change. To topics that are either obsessed with monsters or or darkness or terrorism, anything even remotely Halloween. We just fully embrace it. It's the most wonderful time of the year and so. You know we were coming up with episodes to record this year where we'd lose our minds to weed covered in the past, so on one hand there's an old episode of the show about the mind flares of dungeons and dragons and it's led very some folks to request another episode, dealing with something from the world of unders, dragons and likewise. Last year we did an episode on the Great bacilus USC Where we talk about. The concept of not only the monstrous basketball, but this kind of. Tech World the futuristic vision of an all powerful malevolent, a I, and so decided we'd upped the ante this year, and discuss an entity that kind of combines both of these themes in and so we're going to talk about the Demo Gorgan now. I would not be surprised if the largest portion of you out, there are familiar with the idea of a Gorgan primarily from the recent Netflix. Show stranger things I. Guess it's mainly the first season of that right. Yeah! I mean the he. Keeps popping up as well, but it's mainly that that first excellent season of stranger things and I think that's a good place to start like the most recent pop culture incarnation of the demagogue. It's probably one of the best new cinematic monsters. We've encountered in recent years. In this category, confusion entity that said once humanoid and beast you'll. They've times. He's BIPEDAL and other times. It's crawling around on all fours. It's like a Venus flytrap miniature. The other cool aspect of it it's It's it's head at times, looks like a featureless mask flash, but then it opens up in these these flower petals these kinds of. Razor toothed flower petals around this gaping maw. But I also like that. It's a dimension hopper. Right which kind of means that it's always the it could pop anywhere. Yeah. I travel through dimensions though I'm. I'm uncertain of this part of its natural abilities because we, we see it feeding on an egg and its own dimension at one point. In perhaps it takes to hunting and our rural due to the weakening of the connection between the two. You know due to mad science of course right but this is the case. It's still quite proficient at traveling between the world's through those rips and tears to acquire food right so could actually be rather mundane Predator in its own world. It's just that Matthew Modine and his psychic projects unleashed this Predator into made it in an invasive species in our world right? Yeah, yeah, it's like it's. Like it does pretty well its own world, but here it can really go at it like Superman with the Yellow Sun, yeah, but of course in stranger things we also learned that the kids in the in the story they name the creature, the demagogue, and because they are actively playing dungeons and dragons, and they and they are playing a campaign that involves the Oregon this this. Of Demons is mighty demon. Lord of just immense power now Robert. I know that you have reputation as a quite cruel dungeon master himself, so do you. Your adventuring travelers to a demagogue and every now, and then now not not no not yet, and it's not the kind of thing you would. You would inflict. On Your Adventures in a haphazard fashion. One of the most powerful entities in the game. Okay, so it's it's the kind of thing you cap off an entire campaign with the only. Throw it you know higher level like really high level characters. I mean I guess you could throw it in haphazardly. You have just kind of a very casual game where people have like just immensely powerful characters. In each week you'd battle some things that are tremendously powerful to just see how it all shakes out, but. For, instance in the the campaign out of the abyss. which is a campaign that I've been playing in my group that I've been dungeon mastering for about four years now we are almost at the point where the Gorgan may be encountered Oh. Yeah, so we've been doing up to it. Do have organ cue. Music ready to go when it happens. Basically I mean it's a it's a big deal. It's you know have an enormous figuring that we've been putting together. It's It's huge, okay. Okay well in the dungeons and dragons world. What is this demographic gone creature? It's obviously nothing like what's in stranger. Things like It's not a Venus flytrap mentor right so in dungeons and dragons the and dates back to nineteen seventy six. That's when this entity a originated in a supplement titled Eldrick Wizards by Gary. Guy Gags himself and Brian Bloom, and if you look around online, you can find this in pdf form, and it has some. Some adorable kind of crude illustrations of what the various creatures would look like those those those. Illustrations in Dungeons and dragons have come a long way. The most like the earliest version of the DEMOC Oregon, that is all straighted in. This book is crude sketch of this. Kind of doubt to headed tentacle armed chicken footed thing with baboon heads, right boone heads, but the cute. I mean it's like it's kind of like the monsters in the Rankin Bass Middle Earth. And of course. The big thing that dragons it does take place in the mind and especially early on. They didn't. They didn't have elaborate illustrations you're supposed to. Come up with it yourself. But today we have a labrador restrictions. The most recent fifth edition illustrations of the organ, just absolutely beautiful where it seems like there's a burning sign inside of the the creature. But I want to read just a quick description from that original one, thousand, nine, hundred seventy six supplement to to properly describe what the creature looks like because. The basic description has not chain. Okay, melt my mind with terror. Okay, quoth, guy gaps and bloom here. It is contended by some that this demon Lord is Supreme, and in any of that he is awesome in his power. This gigantic demon is eighteen, tall and Reptilian. His skin is played with snake like scales. His body and legs are those of a giant Lizard, his twin next resemble snakes, and his tail is fort. Demagogue has two heads which bear the visages of evil babboons. BABBOONS or perhaps man drills rather than having arms. He has great tentacles. His appearance testifies to his command of cold-blooded things, such as serpents, reptiles, and occupy and Robert. You brought in glorious figuring that I, now hold in my hand, it's It's very nice. Yeah, this is a small one. The big one I couldn't even bring in because it's two enormous. It would alarm people. And they would they would wonder what was about to befall them. So so basically, this description though holds up there. It's been tweaked a little bit. I think at one point. The heads were more Hyena like because as I mentioned earlier. We've had various editions of Dungeons and dragons. We're on addition five at this point and. Each additional brought about various changes to the rules mechanic lore, and we'll get into some of that in a minute as it relates to democ organ. In the art has mostly gotten just tremendously better over the years and again the most recent fifth edition art is absolutely splendid to behold, but of course another thing to keep in mind is that the Gorgan is a demon, a demon Lord and given the moral panics, surrounding supposed Satanists and the the quote unquote dangers of D. and d. back in the nineteen eighties, the various demons and devils in the game lore lost their titles at one point. So when I originally started playing back in the nineties, these various devils and demons were known as. The tannery. Instead of actually referring to them as demons Oh, okay. So it's a rebrand. Yeah, it was a rebrand because everyone was freaking out. About Imagine Satanist which I think. We've discussed on the show before. The satanism as presented in the satanic panic of the eighties, did not exist. no-one no-one has. Ritual. Sacrificial. Worship of Satan has has occurred in human history. Certainly not on the Organiz scale that a that you see. Described in some of these moral panics, but but anyway yeah, the the demonic edge was taken off the game for a while, and if you wish to invoke such entities, you had Yoda bust out an older monster manual. Thankfully the demons of the abyss, and the devils of the nine hills of made the return and demagogy himself is is not only back, but he's. He's a cover batty. You know he's he's there on the cover of the out of the abyss, and is the the the creature that you battle at the very end and you know he's A. He's not only fearsome physically. He's also highly intelligent entity. He has an an intelligent score of twenty. Which is You know like top of the D twenty okay. How high does it go is twenty th the most intelligent twenty is is tremendously impressive. John von Neumann Kennedy thing like it's I. Think like a ten is. is more in keeping with like you know sort of average human intelligence. This thing is beyond that. Like, eighteen is is like really high for a starting character in in Dutch the dragons, starting moral character, but the DEMOC Gorgon does not use this intelligence for the good of humankind demagoguery is going to what is going to design the most serious financial instruments been. Imagined Oh. Yeah! I! Mean, he's. He's completely chaotically evil. He's also known as the sibling beast in the master of the spiralling depths, and by those two heads. Each one has a name and dungeons and Dragons Lore one is angle, and the other is Hatha Radhia. Guess. I don't know that anyone ever actually speaks to one head or the other. You just kind of speak to a Gorgan. Maybe that's the way to beat it. You get them fighting each other. Maybe I don't know I, mean basically he's this wonderful embodiment of like chaos and disorder and I you know I think he wonderfully embodies the sense of maddening division kind of a perfect demon for modern times especially and I also like to think of the two heads, representing the different hemispheres of the brain. Okay, so maybe only one of them can do complex language. Maybe so yeah. But but also I. Like the idea that the demon lords like are these mighty things, but perhaps they exist because they're like the accumulated run off of all like human inequity. And of course there are other demon lords as well, and they all plot against each other and war eternally they represent different depths of moral sin so democ Oregon's most prominent rivals are orchestra, the Demon Lord of death as well as the demon Lord of Perversion Garage, it and the master of lies frazzled blue, but he's also opposed Muhammad You know Goo and then of course jubilee. Who We've mentioned in passing on the show before wait, so one of his rivals is. We began this episode with the Reading John. Milton's paradise lost in which the name orcas invoked. They don't really explain Milton doesn't go into who orchises there, but is. I didn't expect to Orcas to come back also in the DNC lower here, yeah! ORCAS was a Roman God of the underworld who punished oath breakers and Oh, and by the way he also has his own designated transit newtonian object. In zero four eight to orcas. Not all demon lords can make that claim that they actually have. Some sort of cosmic body named after them. But this gets to the point that the DNB is this wonderful mix of influences fusing various twentieth century, fantasy and SCI FI works with mythology and float in folklore to create its world. So that's so orcas obviously comes from Roman mythology. There are other creatures. We mentioned Bahamas, Bahamas, the entity that the Knights templars were accused of worshiping in the fourteenth century and were. Were subsequently, it radically aided for So you know that's where that name comes from, but then there's demagogue to consider, and and obviously the name predates dungeons and dragons, because it POPs up in Paradise Lost Yeah so you would I think obviously expect given the word Dimmer Gorgan that this is something from Greek mythology. Right just sounds like something straight out Greek. Were of course like Medusa, so you might think oh well, this is some. This is some Greek monster that gets turned into a god at some point, but despite what you would think from the name, you will not find the demagogue on in ancient Greek mythology. You've flipped through the works of homer labors of Hercules mid Samanta liposomes cult of Athena or Apollo. You'RE GONNA. Find No DEMOC organ anywhere. Anywhere so, where does this beast come from? Well, we've we've considered pop culture. We've considered the current twenty first century Netflix show. We've considered a a twentieth century role playing game. So, what are we going to do is we're going to dive deeper? We're GONNA. Go into the literary world and continue to follow follow the shadow of Oregon through the spiralling depths, but first we're GONNA. Take a break. All right, we're back all right, so we've been talking about the monster. The Demon Lord the Gorgan. As it is represented in Dungeons and dragons and Robert has some experience with that, but we now have said that we need to go deeper because we're trying to figure out where this monster came from. If it doesn't come from what you would guess based on. On its name Greek mythology and our next step is to look at. It's very the the the way its name is invoked in various works of Literature, so one of the books says looking at on on this count was is a book called dangerous gains. What the moral panic over roleplaying games says about play religion, and imagined worlds by Joseph P, laycock and This is an interesting looking book that I really WanNa. Read more from but The author mentions demagoguing and POPs up in a number of early modern romantic works. Interestingly Enough Laycock also highlights an author and RPG. The that I've brought up on the show before Ma are barker. you know the this? This guy who is known for creating these books in his role playing world of to Mel which is this fantasy sci fi fantasy world that depends less far less on western models of of history and religion and myth and more on East Asian models, so. There if you're into fantasy, I recommend taking up. Those books are a little old fashioned in some respects like they're very much in the mold of kind of a swashbuckling. Center adventure. Yeah, but the world that he created is really something to behold, but anyway he he he points out quote. The prominence of original fantasy religions, Indian DND as opposed to adaptations of Christian Saints, and Demons can be attributed largely to the influence of in a R barker. Because Barker was was very active in that whole scene at the time. These various individuals Guyq axe and others who are creating these role playing worlds, but as should be clear from US talking about John Milton the demo. Gorgan is not something that is a purely created fantasy religion creature. It actually does have more of a history. It goes back into Christian mythology. Right I'm way so again wins. Wins the demagogue on. Can we trace it back through literature? Yeah, well, let's look at some of the key examples of Literary Gorgan that pop up. Well, let's start with Milton's paradise lost. We read that fantastic quote from it in our cold open plant paradise losses, of course, the masterpiece of John Milton who lives sixteen o eight through sixteen, seventy, four, in which he sets, no higher goal than to. Justify the ways of God demand. I always loved that like. Just really going for it with this work. And to achieve this lofty goal, he retails the creation and the angelic fall in the fall of man, and in doing so creates a Satan that is. In some people's eyes. problematically sympathetic and tragic. Yeah, now. I think you can easily say that Milton was. Sympathetic towards Satan, he was a devout devote. Christian but I've seen I've seen that. Criticism leveled at him particularly in I when I was growing up reading some. Particularly Various Christian fundamentalist views of Demon Allah and treatment of Dame Demons and angels and literature They would charge. Milton Maeda he may, he may say way to likable. Yeah I. Mean I think if you've got no tolerance at all. Then then. Yeah might be might go too far for you but I think one thing he sets out to achieve does in paradise lost his. He shows sin as as going astray. You know as folly as following. Following a misguided path and not always just kind of dislike, indefinable Meazza of horrible ness, yeah, often like to think of the devil is like something. You can't even look at but Milton's devil the the kind of scary thing about the devil in classic. Conceptions of that he's seductive and that he makes good arguments. Yeah I again, demagogue Indian. D. Has that intelligence a twenty wisdom seventeen? You'd expect as much at least from Satan Yeah now in paradise lost of course Satan ultimately he loses a war in heaven. He falls down with his demons. GET CAST into hell. They have a big debate about what to do about this some demons. That they should take up arms I think Pollack says. Let's go fight again. Some say you know we're down here. We can do just let's make the best of it. You know hells, not so bad and but but Satan gets this idea. He's going to get revenge by by corrupting God's favorite creation, the human and spoiler He pulls it. But the this epic poem you can sit. You can almost think of it as kind of a reboot or kind of like. An amazing piece of biblical Fan Fiction where he fleshes out this idea of a war in heaven in the ads in all sorts of dramatic and gnarly details when I was like is that he forges a sword for the arch, Angel Michael that is powerful enough to cut through anything including the flesh of other angels. God Forges Sword. You mean yeah a did I say. Oh, I thought. It sounded like you were saying Satan did okay well I'm probably thinking Sarah onto. The not to be clear God made the sore. Yeah, That's good well. I mean I feel like there's so much stuff in paradise lost and we were talking before we came on into the studio here about Dante's well where these great works of literature within the Christian literary tradition that get incorporated into people's theology like they forget that stuff that's just. Just in paradise lost isn't actually in the Bible right? Yeah, and and we can think Dante further pretty much the whole concept of of purgatory, becoming so prominent in in western traditions, but bs so in creating a paradise lost Milton. He drags in a number of names and develop some more demon names that do pop up in the Bible like the Elza Bob. MAMMON MOLLUSC, but then he also drags in Orcas and Dimmer Gorgan, and then there are seemingly new creations like a most most super the architect of pandemonium, the capital of Hell. So Dim Oregon is mentioned in book two, and we will you. You heard it at the start of this episode described it in. This is a a section of Paradise lost of describes Satan's void out of Hell with sin and death, so the Gorgan is basically a background player. He's texture. A little texture to the scene is Satan crosses the wilds of chaos night that span the void between Heaven and hell, and there are other literary invocations of the Democrat organ that I would say are basically the same they use the Gorgan, not as a major figure of significance, but something as sort of texture to establish the two places sort of ultimately abandoned by God and and wretched. Yeah, like it's just really horrible and another great example of this is the way the Duma Gorgan. In. Edmund Spenser's the fairy Queen So if you've never ended the fairy queen is also it's like paradise lost in English epic Poem It's from the sixteenth century, so it's earlier than paradise lost in. Is this really long poem about virtues and the Adventures of Chivalrous Knights? It's one of those that's you know to modern readers. I think it has a whole lot of interest in it, and there is some great poetry in it, but also it can be very long, ponderous and kind of stuffy in some ways because I mean, you can only read so much about piety and. but it's long been interpreted as containing a lot of allegorical representations of present figures in politics from the Elizabethan era when it was written I, was reading about how Spencer he he secured himself really nice pension from the Elizabethan court by presenting the poem to Queen Elizabeth but again the Gorgan here does not appear as a main character, but sort of as a bit of character for the landscape, so just to read one stanza, which it is invoked, therefore deserves the end of all their days to know and them to enlarge with long extent by wondrous skill and many hidden ways to the three fatal sister's house. She went for underground from tractive living went down. Down in the bottom of the deep abyss, where dimmer Gorgan in dull darkness pent far from the view of God's in Heaven's bliss. This hideous chaos keeps their dreadful dwelling. Is So this characters go? She's going down into a into a dark godforsaken place. And how do you signal places? darken godforsaken. How do you show places evil in far from God? Well, you mentioned. It's where the DEMOC organ hangs out, so if the Red Cross nightstands stands for Piety Holiness the Oregon stands for an holiness and satanic chaos. Now another work that's is often invoked that mentions the democ Oregon is another sixteenth century work. It's an Italian epic poem by Lot of Icho Ariosto title. Orlando Furioso. Which is? A poem that can concerns. The Night Orlando who is known infringed traditions as Roland. Now at least in some versions and translations it, it does mention demo. Gorgan quote the ruler of Fates but as far as I could tell again he's just background. He's just texture that's added to this to a particular scene. All right so this gets us back to the the fifteenth. Sixteenth Century and so we see by then that the organ is being invoked in literature written by Christians as some kind of. Demon, some bad thing maybe has something to do with fate. Maybe it has something to do with chaos, and there's an earlier source that came across. That's a hundred years before this the fourteenth century Latin Encyclopedia of Pagan Gods and their relationships known as Boko chose Gina Loggia, Dei, Orem, gentilly, or the genealogy of the gods of the gentiles This was written by the Italian poet Giovanni Caccio. But CACCIO apparently was commissioned to sort of put together this compendium of all the bad old gods, you know, the the the pagan stuff back then and show the relationships to each other to make a family tree I found an addition and analysis by Ernest. Hatch Wilkins actually could not find an English translation of this I think there might be one out there somewhere, but maybe it's not available online but but. But anyway Wilkins in this nineteen twenty seven edition from the University of Chicago Press was discussing what is covered in book, and apparently in attempting to create a family tree of all pagan gods, but CACCIO regards the Gorgan as the original Pagan Deity the great great grandfather of Jupiter Zeus from which all other Pagan Deities are descended, so the the family tree just starts right at the top Demo Gorgan. All right so if you're looking at. Various Pagan Gods from a Christian standpoint where pagan gods or a bad thing, and perhaps are actually demons than this where we get into the idea that the democ organ is something primal and perhaps Vile in nature, the ferry, I god, how strange now it turns out! This isn't the first reference to a Demo Gorgan in Christian. Literature and we will find an earlier mention of it later on, but before we move onto that I wanted to talk about what I think one of the most interesting literary depictions of the Demagogue and definitely the most interesting I've come across, and it's in Percy Shelley's Premie theus unbound. This is of course Mary's husband. Yes. Yes, the husband of the author of Frankenstein Percy bysshe Shelly was. An English, romantic poet this is a lyric drama, so it's a drama written in verse said the play is a response to the Greek myth of permit, theus and Shelley first published it in eighteen twenty. And he explicitly presented as this as a response to the The play Prometheus bound by the ancient Greek playwright escalates so the myth of Prometheus. You might know it well, but just to refresh it goes something like this. Prometheus was one of a race of deities in ancient Greek religion, known as the titans, and the titans came before the gods of Olympus the titans were offspring from the Union of Urine us the heavens and Gaia the earth and they. They ruled the earth until cronies. The King of the titans was dethroned, and his allies were defeated by his sons, Zeus and the Olympian Gods. This is the war of the titans are the titanic Machi So prometheus was one of the titans, the son of the Titan Yep notice, but he took the side of Zeus in the war between the Olympians and the titans, so he's still around among the Olympian Gods and Zeus of course is a creep. Zeus is June. Just set your watch to. He's going to be a creep in a jerk. Zeus doesn't want mortal humans down on earth like us to have power and knowledge like the gods, so he takes this crucial step in this myth of hiding fire from the humans. He takes fire from the earthy hides. It amount Olympus. He says humans can't have it. And permit theus the Titan instead is sympathetic to humans, and so what he does is he steals fire from where Zeus had hidden it limps, and he takes it down to share with the mortals below, and this is a trope that we see in various mythologies. For instance there's a there's a nearly identical role in Chinese of the Fire Driller who essentially does the same thing, and then we see this again in so many stories. There's some sort of knowledge of up with some sort of. Basically technological in nature, and it is taken from the gods, one way or the other borrowed from the Gods and bestowed either bestowed to humans by some benevolent entity like the US. or it is just straight up. stolen from the gods by mortal so I think the Chinese version, even better because in that the God who brings the the fire, does it explicitly brings technological means to make fire, not just the fire itself so the fire drill? Of course you know if you ever used a bow drill. It's not so easy, but you can make fire that way. Permit, theus is usually depicted as bringing like chance or something. And granted that makes for a much better sculpture painting, right naked, Titan with. With with this highly symbolic of a flaming torch or branch, but through the years prometheus gift to humans I. Think is more often interpreted along the lines of the fire driller where he's not just fire permit symbolizes the power from the heavens who betrays the leader, God and Brings Down General Technology and knowledge and power and sucker to the humans which. Would it's interesting for media and the figure of Prometheus and the the figure of of Satan have a lot in common right kind of yeah, because I mean yes Satan, one of the things that's interesting about the story of Satan in the Garden of Eden is Satan does not lie to the humans You know he's presented as doing bad. He encourages them to to violate God's law in the garden and eat from the. The tree that is forbidden to them, but he says you can eat from the tree, and you will not die as you've been told you will, and it turns out. It's true they eat, and it doesn't kill them, except you could make the argument that maybe well. Maybe it makes them mortal in the long run. I mean basically he's a disruptor. put it in like silicon. Valley turns right like he's. He's trying to disrupt creation. But, so in the Greek myth, of course permit, theus, being nice to the humans and betraying Zeus, both the mortals and permit theus punished for this, the punishment for humans is a sequence of events that leads to the opening of Pandora's box out of which flow all the hardships and frailty of human life you get play, get toiled to survive all that stuff and a little bit. Hope Leftover. I guess yeah in the bottom. Permit, theus is punished in a more explicit way. He is bound to Iraq in the Caucasus mountains, and not only is he chained up, but Zeus sends a Nasty Eagle Peck out his liver each day, and unfortunately prometheus, as immortal, so is liver as an immortal liver just keeps regenerating, and the Eagle can fly back. Peck it out and eat it again the next day it sounds. Sounds like a bad deal. Yeah, yes, it's a bad deal. I don't know as far as like offending Zeus goes. I guess it could have been worse. I guess so now in response to this myth, Shelley Percy shelley in his play takes up the banner of for me Theus and he makes him heroic figure in the play and I would say this is not surprising because. You could definitely say that Percy. Shelley was of a revolutionary temperament theologically politically and in literature he was very against the old ways, and the old powers and authorities and four sort of disruption and revolution, and doing things in a new way now the plot of Shelley's plays kind of abstract and sort of loaded with characters and images of ponderous meaningfulness so so I'm going to try to do a short summary leaving aside all the stuff that takes us in other directions, and focusing on how the DEMOC organ comes in so for me Theus is we find him in this state where he's bound up by? Zeus Jupiter in this play, but this is the same figure. The king of the Gods bound up and tortured by Jupiter for bringing knowledge to the mortals, and in Shelley's version, it is explicitly not just fire, but general knowledge in aid, and there are two other deities who are sympathetic to Burma the, and they WANNA help him. These are the sisters Asia and Pantheon, and they attempt to free prometheus from his bondage as Seen Him who is actually the beloved of Prometheus in Pantheon is. Led by a dream, the two of them venture into the underworld, and they meet a character called the Gorgan, who is portrayed as a kind of supremely powerful, but also strangely passive and kind of inert force of fate and nothingness, who is also the son of Jupiter now when they first come across the DEMOC organ, the character of Pantheon describes him this way she says I see a mighty darkness filling the seat of power and raise of Gloom Dart round as light from the Meridian Sun on gazed upon and shapeless neither limb. Nor Outline yet we feel it is a living spirit. This is very different from the D. and d. Gorgan Right. Yeah, this is more like a primordial soup. The Deity, yeah, so they say that they since there is a living presence down in the abyss with them, and there's a mighty darkness. There's something in the gloom, but they can't see that it has any kind of shape or body, and then Pantheon Asia have a consultation with the. They, ask him questions in the demagoguing reveals to them that Jupiter created the world with all the good and the bad that it entails, and also that even Jupiter himself is not all powerful, because in the words of the demagogue unquote, all spirits are enslaved, which serve things evil, and he says to Asia Thou Newest Jupiter. Be Such or no of course. Asia knows that even though Jupiter is the chief God Jupiter still does things that are evil. He serves evil. Evil, so there must be some kind of power over him. Because all things serve evil, have some power over them. So what is even Jupiter? Subject to well the demagogue answers that to quote if the abysmal could vomit forth at secrets, but a voices wanting the deep truth is image Lewis, for what would it avail to bid the gays on the revolving world what to bid speak fate, time, occasion, chance and change to these things are subject, but eternal love. That's the fifth element. I guess it is so even Jupiter. The ultimate God of everything is subject to the power of love. sounds kind of cheesy, but then, but then Asia's like okay. Well I love Prometheus. So when will he be freed like wind shell, the destined our arrive for permits to be to be freed, and the demagogue. Gorgan just says behold exclamation point so that immediately the demagogue and travels. Travels to heaven where Jupiter in the Jupiter the chief God is in the middle of a big speech about how awesome he is, and the Democrat Oregon appears, and then he just he just messes up Jupiter. He cast him down. He destroys the tyrant creator God, and then permit the can be freed by Hercules and reunited with Asia. That's quite a climax well, but it's not the class. This is not the end of the play. This is like act three of. Play after this. It seems I've never read the thing in full I admit i. read some passages. It seems like after this. There is a lot of sort of windy, pontificating about love and virtues, and what is good and right, but anyway I think the organs role in this story is very interesting. He's it well so I kept saying he, but the DEMOC, and actually one thing that's been pointed out by scholars as. As the Demagogue Gorgan has never given a gender in in Percy's play in in other sources, it has I think soon to be a he, but there's no. There's no gender in Burma. theus unbound, so the Demo Gorgan whoever they are, whatever they are is depicted as in some kind of infernal phantom of the underworld, but also a liberating force for positive, good, overthrowing the tyrannical order of creation at the appointed hour. Though interestingly I would say the demagogue and doesn't really seem to act out of their own volition. It's almost as if. They are somehow triggered into this act by the visit from Asia and Pantheon like it's the love for Prometheus from Asia that was faded to proceed the appointed hour of Jupiter's destruction and the liberation of the world. Another thing that's interesting here about Shelley's work, so we talked about how the Oregon does not actually come from Greek mythology. Even though he's being retro insurgent in delight, classical mythology here Greek and Roman kind of blended mythology here what would the word demagogy I mean? If it actually were Greek word well, you've got the apparent roots demos in Gorgan like the People's Gorgan, democracy, and then Gorgan again. The Monster, the of which Medusa is a member of the species, but actually the Gorgan name for Medusa that has a root in Greek to it's from the word. Word Gorgas, which means something like terrible grim terror, inducing so the organ could literally be translated as the people's terror like the terror of the masses of people, which is very interesting intersection with the idea of like a long faded revolution to dethrone tyrant kings and unworthy gods, and of course we know Percy. Shelley was a supporter of the French Revolution. He believed in eighth theism. He believed in republicanism, not to be confused with like the Republican Party of today, just like in the context of the time that was representative government as opposed to monarchy. And so I think it could be tempting to think of. The French Revolution as Shelley's demagogue gone the people's terror like this inevitable swell of justice that washes tyrants from their thrones, but at the same time contains a terrifying mighty darkness that can't really be seen or understood. I like that the people's terror. I mean yeah. I don't know I don't know if shelly himself would have seen. that. Comparison because I think he. He may have had a more a less nuanced view of the Guillotine say. And of course, this introduces the idea of The Oregon is is being pathetic. Potential political candidate move perhaps then in upcoming elections. If you're if you're inclined as a write in candidate, go demographic and twenty twenty, the just rage of the people that is without form or shape. Now one more example of Oregon popping up in in in in a work of literature. IS A. Story since we're short story from Voltaire. Ulterior lived sixteen, Ninety four through seventeen, seventy eight, and I'd never read this before I'd read. I've read some works of Voltaire in the past. But it anyway. This one is titled Plato's Dream in which the Oregon is presented as a genie who witnesses the initial creation. Of the world by this Primordial Force called the dinner Jr and along with its fellow genie's. The demographic is granted a portion of the creation to then. To finish into A, functioning, world. Oregon is given the task of creating Earth, and and then critiqued and criticized by his fellow genie's for making such a mixed up planet, and so there's a part here I want to quote where demagogue and responds to his critics, and says quote. It is an easy matter to find fault. Good folks, said the genie, but do you imagine it is so easy to form an animal who having the gift of reason and free will shall not sometimes abuses liberty. Do you think that in rearing between nine and ten thousand different plants? It is so easy. Easy to prevent some few from having noxious qualities. Do you suppose that with a certain quantity of water, sand and mud? You could make a globe that you'd have neither sees nor desert's as for you, my sneering friend, I think you have just finished the planet Jupiter let us see now. What figure you make with your great belts and your law nights with four moons to enlighten them. Let us examine your world and see whether the inhabitants you have made are exempt from follies or diseases. I guess we'll just have to wait for the euro probe. To resolve this one right so there's not much to really like. In. This win but. there. There's at least one detail in this. That'll become critical in our next section of the podcast. After we come back from break, we will get into the true abyss UIL origins of the Demo Gorgan. All right, we're back, so we've chartered the path of the demagogue, and through much literature, throughout especially the Christian world and its role in some interesting sort of a revolutionary sentiments is expressed through literature like Prometheus unbound or in Voltaire Story, but we're trying to find the origin of this. Where does the demagogue and actually come from? If it doesn't come from classic Greek mythology well, the origin is discussed in one thousand, nine, hundred, sixty four book titled The discarded, Image Introduction to medieval and renaissance literature written by none other than CS Lewis. In fact it was CS Lewis his last book before he died, and it deals with medieval cosmology. He turns her attention to the fourth book of the Ebeid by status. The first status live to. See Forty five through six. And this is an epic poem written in Latin about the Theban Cycle, and here the author alludes to a deity that shall not be named a quote sovereign of the threefold world and then early Christian author lieutenants live to fifty, three, twenty, five wrote a commentary on this work in stated that status was referring in th- in fact to the Greek. Dior gone though, were this create? ATER quoted the God whose name is unlawful to know? So we're talking so dimiar Oregon okay from which we get a Demo Gorgon. And and then Lewis writes the following to sum this up quote, this is plain sailing, the Dinnie urge or workmen, being the creator in today S, but there are two variants in the manuscripts. One is Demo GonNa the other demagogue organ from the later of these corruptions, later ages evolved a completely new Deity Demo Gorgan, who was to enjoy a distinguished literary career in caccio genealogy of the Gods in Spencer in Milton and in Shelley. This is perhaps the only time a scribe blunder underwent an apotheosis. Oh, that's amazing. And just so when in a mythological context of course, apotheosis here refers to the process of human being being. Being deified or something being made into a higher being like a God or restore heavenly object to being taken up into Heaven, ancient kings were sometimes made into gods and legendary heroes, like Hercules sometimes lived lives that were so worthy or so notable they were assumed into the Pantheon and became God's so I think that's what he's saying here is that somebody made a blunder in copying manuscript, or in translating in understanding what a word meant in an older book, and through that scribner error, we got a brand new deity such that you know a thousand years later, but Caccia would say this. Deity is the original Mac Daddy Deity. Number like the Pagan God before all the other ones, and it just comes from a mistranslation or misreading of a word right, and the the word was mis read or mistranslated, is the dinner ch which which curiously enough is cited in that voltaire? Short story right, so it seems like Voltaire was kind of on the right track with the association here. And this is great because the dinner is one of my favorite characters from any mythology in the world, but but its role is complicated and varies across different traditions, including platonic schools of philosophy and religion in the you know in the centuries following Plato's actual teachings and in various. Religions I'll try to give a general summary that applies to multiple lines of tradition that have sort of similar attributes, but just be aware that there are a lot of different things that are all sort of versions of the urge the word dimiar. Jr as as Lewis, mentioned comes from the Greek in its original form is just a common noun that means something like craftsman. With somebody who makes things, sculptor maker producer, but within these religious points of view, or in in these philosophies and cosmology. The Dinner Jr is a figure that creates the material world is the creator, but apart from many other religions. This does not mean that he is the ultimate Creator God, or that he is good, he is I would say variously portrayed as is everything ranging from kind of neutral and bumbling to actively malevolent any given example from one strain of Nassim in the nostrils text to known as the Apocrypha on of John. The demerge figure. Is this foolish arrogant wicked deity called? Both who creates the material bodies of humans I think he also may be creates the material world or some aspects of in humans, th the humans that he created end up with souls, when they are inadvertently contaminated by spark or a light from the higher nobler plane of being known as the player Roma, which means something like fullness, and so you've got diploma, the fullness, the real world, the real grader place which is is. Is Immaterial Nature and then you've got the the crappy material world that y'all to both made, and now we're stuck in that thing, and the ultimate oath resents the fact that humans have this spark from the player Roma and tries to fight against it so to do so he tries to keep humans confused in the dark, so we're always fumbling around in this kind of baffling material. Hell, which is our everyday world in the NAS? Nas Ticks within this tradition believe that you can only escape the horrors of the material world by becoming privy to secret knowledge. That knowledge is the know, SIS, the secret knowledge that explains the real world, and this is this is how you transcend the secret mythology, the secret rituals that gives you access to the true fuller reality behind this material illusion that controls our lives, and you can actually see a connection to play tonic philosophy. Philosophy even if this sounds like a very strange complicated theological take on on the creation of the world. It sounds a lot like Plato's cave right. Yeah, yeah, it does I mean and also the the the basic spirit of this is also reflected and other faiths I mean the idea of there being a secret reality of there being some sort of cycle that we need to break free from I. Mean you see that in say? Hindu Buddhist traditions and this idea of the the the spark something more divine being trapped in the mud, our bodies. That also reflected in in even more recent creations like scientology. Oh, totally, I yeah, absolutely I would say Nas tick theology reflects something that is a very common belief among humans, and you can see how often it appears not just in other religions, but in all kinds of pop culture I mean echoes of the nonstick Worldview bouncer constantly even through contemporary culture, whether we're conscious of it or not, and whether the creators of these pieces of culture conscious of it or not, if I mean if you've seen the matrix, you already have a sort of baseline understanding. Understanding of Austin cosmetology. You just replace the evil computers and the agents with cosmic realms and wicked Arkan's like the damage, the marriage sort of created a material matrix for us to live in when in reality we are beings from this better immaterial world, and we have to find ways to escape and get back to it, so you're saying we are stardust. We are Golden. We are billion year old carbon, and we have to find our way back to the garden. Yes, but you can only get back to the garden if you teach your children well. The secret knowledge that is required to get you there and most people are never going to be. Let in on the secret. They're just sort of going about their. You know their everyday life toiling after material things without understanding that the material world is bad and fake, but I love this idea that the dimmer urge the being this creator of the material world who's at the at the very least bumbling, and at worst some kind of devilish thing that hates us in wants to trick us into living bad wrong lives. I could see this mistranslation leading to the creation of the. The Gorgan figure, being an excellent modern reworking of the nonstick theology, and being part of that Demeer just plan like the dinner. hides the true noces about it's wicked role in creating the material world, and these filthy bodies of ours it by causing a scrabble error that hides its existence, and instead it gets. Everybody focused on this fake illusory demon or primordial God. The DEMOC Oregon and then you're scared of the Demo Gorgan, or you're in all of its primeval darkness and shapeless presence, so you forget that you need to be seeking the noces to escape this wretched unreality. And Yeah Yeah I mean if you ultimately if you're trying to envision the ultimate evil power in a in a fantasy world. The sounds like the this is the the prince of demons right here. weirdly kept thinking about the day marriage when recently talking about that book I read by Philip Ball about a quantum mechanics, so yeah, the is called beyond weird. It's great book. It's a new book from this year last year about. Quantum mechanics, and one of the things that I think is really great about the book is. It doesn't let you off the hook. It doesn't just let you say. Wow, quantum mechanics sure does seem weird and then kind of shake your head and move on like he tries to force you to look at it. It does the things from like clockwork orange or Eyelids, open and says Oh. Look at this and pay attention in one of the things you walk away from that with. Is that okay? You know I'm not saying that physical reality isn't real but it. It makes you think that whatever way we're interacting with the world on a day to day basis, you know the kind of reality we perceive with like objects you can touch and see and know their place, and all that that is not the ultimate. Arbiter of what reality is like your perception of reality is not necessarily the most accurate way of understanding reality, even though it seems to work good enough to get you through life. So how could it be wrong? But yet we you know we do experiments in physics all the time now that that just show you over and over again that the way you have of making sense of the world is some kind of derivative second order kind of grasp of physics, so you have no intuitive way of understanding quantum reality a what happens before deco here and everything so that ultimately there is this there is this deeper truth in the universe. That that we are not inherently privy to. We're only privy to it via. Technology via science. These are essentially. Tools. Validation, this is how you get the NOCES. You do a double slit experiment. Why have enjoyed this this journey that we've taken? You know because it feels. Part of it seems like the natural destination for exploration of the demagogue, and that it would tie back to this primordial, being wrapped in plastic mystery, but on the other hand. I loved it also hinges incredibly upon just ascribable blunder. You know that it's a thing that was actually. Never. Really re all in the way that we we might attributed as having been. It was never actually. An entity that was. worshipped or even factored into. Myth Cycle. No, it is wholly without shape out of the darkness is the figure that Asia and Anthea go to visit and you know it just waits there until it's our comes round at last. Yeah, yeah, and I also love how we got to Let's see if we got to turn to Joni Mitchell crosby stills and Nash. Lewis. Milton, and of course, Gary. Guy Gags to understand it all. A wonderful. Motley crue for those wooden ships on the water. All right well, we're going to close it out right there, but obviously I imagine a number of you have thoughts about the Oregon either the Netflix version or the dungeons and dragons, incarnation, or perhaps some of the the literary incarnations. We've discussed here as well and of course we would love to hear from you. But stay tuned because again. This entire month of October is going to be a Halloween theme as it has been in the past. We're GONNA have all new monstrosities to consider. Tying in his much science as we possibly can have, we ever done an episode on the science of Medusa snakes for hair. There's something there something new. Counter. At least blog about Medusa back in the day and I think I did maybe a monster science video about Medusa, but that would be an interesting to to explore again. Because the meduse is, is fascinating monster, and then some of the things we've done with the Medusa are kind of monstrous. I could I would be up for Medusa exploration. Bring it Aright in the meantime. If you WANNA sport the show, the best thing you can do is make sure you subscribed rate and review. US wherever you have the power to do so and don't forget about invention. Monsters are great, but the real monster is always human endeavor human invention, and that's what we we explore. Invention is a journey through human techno history. Really IT'S A it's a celebration or at least a contemplation in some in many cases of the fire of Prometheus. Prometheus yeah the things we made how they made us where they came from. Yeah, so make sure you have checked that. Show out as well and make sure you subscribe rate and review helps us out.

Eighty six. Rob Parker welcome to the podcast I'm your host Rob Parker. What is show we have for you today? Actor Matthew Modine yes. The big time Yankee Fan will talk about his bronx bombers. and. Much more plus. Who Sports National Baseball writer Tim Brown that plus Sanchez Diamond Dos. Let's go. To, lead off, it's getting robbed and keep them up rob's heartache take on the three biggest stories in major league baseball. Number One, I know I know some people will not let this sit well with them. That Angel shortstop. Andrew Simmons has opted out of the angel season with less than a week to go. And here's the bad part is that the angels are still mathematically In the playoff race for wildcard. But I'M GONNA error here on the side of caution and with the Corona Virus Cova Nineteen and just people worrying about their family and their health as hard for me. To Rip on Simmons if this is what he believes is the best thing for his family. It just seemed strange that you play the in almost the entire season. Come to the final week where your team need you and then decide that you will not finish the regular season, but it is what it is in twenty twenty number two I don't know about you but the playoffs a less than a week to start and. Here we go. NBA Nhl Stall Play offs with sixteen teams making it. And to audit three to start but here's the interesting thing next Tuesday are you ready? ESPN and ABC begin televising seven of the eight First Round Three Game Major League Baseball Playoff Series That means that I'll possible. Twenty one games in three days you'll be able to watch. Did you hear what I said I'll possible twenty one. Playoff Games. In. Three. Days. So this'll be uncharted territory out is the. One game play in for the wild card in is now sixteen teams but this will be a smorgasbord. It'll be like a college basketball on the first day of the tournament, there will be wall to wall baseball for three days. Enjoy. Number three is time for me to give you my biggest surprise in a good way for the season. The biggest disappointment For the season and the biggest surprise I gotta say the San Diego Padres, I mean I get it. They were making moves. You know when they signed Manny Machado had a great year for them but the emergence of Fernando Tat Tease Junior. Just, added another dimension there and then to be able. To also compete with the dodgers and to be traders at the trade deadline and pick up Mike Clever from the Indians. That to me said a lot about the padres and about having a chance in this postseason, and then again, don't forget that it's not going to be a one you deal. They got young players, young stars and padres or going to be around the make some noise. So yes, they are the biggest surprise making their first playoff appearance. In fourteen years amazing. The biggest disappointment could either be the Washington nationals, who of course, who will not be able to defend their world series championship of a year ago and the Boston Red Sox who the bottom fell out of everything I. got it. CRA, sales was heard. The nationals had injuries as well. So both really suffered with injuries this year. But it is disappointing that the nationals couldn't make the playoffs when you think about the expansion and for the red SOx to be as awful as they have been is pretty shocking. Yes. We know they traded mookie Betts and David price but for the bottom, the fallout seems a bit extreme. Here, comes the big interview. Listen and learn so. Let's welcome into the PODCAST Matthew Modine. Of course, the actor brought to you today here by full metal jacket, which is available now on Four K Ultra Hd Blu Ray Combo pack and digital Stanley Kubrick's nineteen, eighty-seven war classic is. On Four. K.. Resolution for the first time and Matthew thanks for joining us. My pleasure, it's exciting to be here. Thank you for having me. You know I'm excited about this. Tell me about the rerelease know in this hd full metal jacket gotta be excited. He had so Leon Batali who worked with Stanley Kubrick from Berry Lyndon on. So Berry lend in the shining full metal jacket and eyes wide shut he there's not an aspect of film making that he doesn't know about and so the on Batali actually, there's a documentary film that you can see that that talks about him and his life called film worker amazing documentary great insight into Stanley Kubrick, but also Liam to tally. Leon his remastered this film he's gone in and frame by frame of full metal jacket taken the negative of the film and scan each frame. To create this Four K. Ultra. HD. And I. I've only seen little pieces of it, but it's like. Like a brand new movie. It's it's it. There's so much detail that when you make. When you have a negative there's information that that the motion picture camera catches and puts on a negative a piece of celluloid, and then when you make a positive of that negative the prints, can you know the prints are never as great as what? Of the amount of information that's in the negative. So to be able to go and frame by frame, scan each of those frames. There's so much information that you couldn't see when you were watching the movie the detail and the remastering of the sound and the music can it's a testament to Stanley? KUBRICK's that after thirty three years The p the that this film is still part of the conversation that that. So many things from the film sentences, you things, lines that people spoke have become part of our everyday vernacular. You know you talk to talk to you walk the walk you're the Kinda guy that could suck a golf ball through a garden hose. You, know to to to live crew with a sampling of the. Me So horny. Time yes. Putting it in a song. No doubt. I'll guess Matthew Modine of course, the actor and he joins us on inside the Parker and yes, you are baseball fan a Yankees Fan. I know you are. This sees it. You know it's been a little crazy. You know it's almost down to the Matthew Sixty Games. They had a rough patch in the middle of the season with a lot of injuries but they're they're playing better you happy where they're headed as playoffs or about the start. Yeah. I, was happy. They got those last ten wins in a row. and. Know we slipped a little bit now we finally lost a Boston lost the game and but I think the bombers the looking good I'm excited and you know it's a shortened season. So everything is really different. It's it's sad but it's it's part of life that we don't get to go to the Games and and you know cheer together and celebrate. everything that's New York and the Yankees. But you know that's that's the situation we'll get through it. We we'll get through it and I think that we're GONNA come out the other side of this better I think that this is given us a lot of opportunities to to look at look look within and and Understand ourselves a little bit better. Yeah. I'm with you on that and I know you did a twenty eighteen preseason high video for the Yankees and You know the playoffs the last few years, the Yankees despite all the injuries matthew they've gone to the AL had a chance to get to the world series in two of the last three years losing to the Astros. When you see the Astros a noted they're cheating scandal. Do you feel a little cheated about you know especially? last year. Yeah. Absolutely I don't know why they didn't They must have asterix next to their name but I I don't know why the Baseball Commissioner didn't take it away. Didn't take that championship away. I mean we. We celebrate people for cheating and you know I mean I. I'm a I'm New York jets giants. And as well. I say jets-giants because I I love them both but. You know who? How many times Bella check got caught cheating up there in New England No doubt about it I always say he can't be considered the greatest coach ever because of those marks of of cheating. The one thing speaking of cheating I think sometimes baseball and Yankee fans feel cheated because Aaron judge just can't seem to stay healthy for full year when he was healthy to start the season where you excited 'cause we've seen what the guy can do when he's out there and he can play every day. He's amazing I mean he's a he's a specimen. You know he's I. I. I've never seen somebody that big move as fast as he does. Swing about like he does I mean, he's he's a kind of a a frequent nature, but he's he he's one of the most exciting baseball players in the in the sports. So I I think that you know he's very young and and I think that Every year that goes by he's GonNa. Understand his body a little bit better. And and know how to train a little bit differently and he's going to be fine. You know he's got. He's got. three or four five really good years coming coming ahead of him I think that we're we're all going to be proud that he's a Yankee. Matthew before the season started I, picked the dodgers and the Yankees I think they have the best to rosters. They haven't met since one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one with that being awesome world series of these two teams met. That's what I was hoping for a couple years ago that that that just you know eat I west the Brooklyn dodgers, you know the history, the legacy that would have been spectacular but you know it was in our state but you know we we we can't hope we can hope that that's a that's a that's great rivalry. There you know no doubt. All right. Thank you so much. I do want to say in addition to the four K. release of full metal jacket also put out a full metal jacket diary project, which was originally a limited edition book you know out of print. And is now an award-winning IPAD APP DEMENTIA and Auto Book Matthew Again, thanks for joining the podcast and all all the best of luck as you move forward. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your time and that was fun push h you. All right. Thank you so much. Go Yankees. And Jennifer Palmieri host of a new podcast from the recount all just something about her. After we're going on five presidential campaigns, I thought women could achieve the same success as men, and if they played by the rules, Van 2016 happened in my podcast just something about her I'll talk with women, CEO's athletes, politicians, and more. So together, we can create our own. Listen to just something about her on the iheartradio APP, apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcast, all of us in America heavy duty. To vote.

I'm Katie couric, and this is turn out a podcast exploring America's voting record with the help of experts, activists and politicians. We're going to talk about the ways voters have been kept out of the system and how to ensure that everyone can participate in our democracy turn out launches, October I, find it on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts or wherever you listen to your favorite shows. It's time for the pocket protector central, the analytic numbers you need to know well, maybe Anthony masterson as his name BS analytics is game. What do you got for me? Anthony Now that we've reached the final week of his truncated regular season, it's fun to look back and find the players who made the greatest strides in this crazy twenty twenty and those who took a step or two back. Baseball savant has a whole section of leaderboard where you can sort by the year to year changes of all their advanced metrics. You can see that no surprise Fernando Takis Junior has the largest increase in hard hit percentage from last year going from forty four to sixty four percent. But would you be shocked to learn that second on that list was braves Catcher, Travis d'arno who's hitting eighty points over his career average the oils Anthony Santan there had. A breakout campaign prior to a season ending injury increasing Sophia's over one hundred points or twenty nineteen along with nearly doubling his home run rate is that because he had a league high increase in his launch angle from fifteen degrees to nearly twenty five. Now on the mound, the braves Max freed is having a CY young type season one, nine, hundred, zero, zero homes allowed 'cause that'd be because he's decreases average exit velocity by a high six point three miles per hour from eighty nine to will be low eighty, two, point nine on other end we know that Madison Bumgarner is having a season to forget in the desert with a career high seven, thirty, six era. The data tells us that his average fastball velocity has decreased a league high three point seven miles per hour to just a tick under eighty six, and it was four more years. What's on that deal? The debate might feel snake bitten. That ball. Was Big Week in the big leagues. Or is it fair and now? FEARED SHADOW LEAGUE DOT COM, and it'll be insider JR Gamble Jacob degrom struck out fourteen Tampa Bay rays, Monday night, and seven innings while surrendering just to earn runs. And still lost two to one. The mets are struggling. We know that looks like they're not gonNA, make the playoffs and he's clearly the only consistent star in that team Jr is foul or fair to say that to grop regret signing that five, year, one, hundred, and thirty, seven, point, five, million, dollar contract, which will keep them in Queens, through twenty, twenty five. That is a thou-. Going to get over thirty million dollars per season the next. Five years. So actually soften the pain having a play for a team that's only made the playoffs twice since two thousand six it hasn't seen the world series web as nineteen, eighty six. Some would say the garments wasting his best here on the mets team that seems more worried about making headlines, overrating themselves and pinching pennies than actually trying to go out and win. The sixty game season it's no different. They came in with high hopes and I'll leaving without a playoff berth. ABC The new ownership women crew thing. But if the MOM wants to win the world series in the near future. Then maybe you'll have some regrets. But, if he can wait another three years for the mets to be good. That being the face of the franchise in the meantime isn't a bad deal. All you have to do right now is rarely stack is cash 'cause at thirty two. He's no spring chicken and they'll be pushing forty nearly forty when his contract can. Go for now you have to enjoy the CY young and the All Star appearances in the big apple would know regret. Short. It's time for trash talk twitter wing with your chance to trash anyone or anything in major league. Baseball. This week's winner is at Osu legacy. Any tweeted me this Dick, Williams and David Bell, they are scrambling to make the playoffs again after missing seven straight years, we are tired of the reds and their lack of winning they let go of Dusty Baker and have and have been in the toilet ever since. If you WANNA be on trash talking twitter Matt Hippie up all my twitter at Rob Parker F s one and if you come strong and hard to the MIC, yes you too will make it on the podcast. When rob was a newspaper columnist he lived by this motto. If I'm writing I'm rippin. Let's bring a writer broadcaster older new. All right now let's welcome to the PODCAST. One of my favorite people a friend of mine Tim Brown the national. Baseball writer for Yahoo Sports Tim Welcome to the PODCAST. Buddy. Thanks for having me man, how are you mad doing good hanging in I can't believe the baseball season Tim will be over next week in the play offs and a couple of days after that, let's just jump right into it. One team that most baseball fans and a lot of baseball players don't want to see make the playoffs. Is, Houston Astros those cheating Houston Astros, but it looks like they're gonNa get in with the second spot. Will be the most hated team in play offs. Yeah I. Think. So you know because I think fans feel like they never got a true shot at him. You know this year to to go stand in front of him in in ballparks all over the country and let them know how they felt about that world series and and guys like you know Bregman and I'll to a springer and all those guys. So so I, do think that. You know first off the pitch a little bit on the front end the bullpen is then young and Funky, but they could be kind of dangerous. They've got enough good arms out front with starting with. That that they could not be an easy out. Just in terms of yeah The who they are what they stand for the you know the the fact again that world didn't get a clean shot at them all season. Long I think that's the team. Would a lot of people are going to be rooting for bounce early? No doubt about it. Of course, the dodgers they do the same thing every year they clinched their eighth straight. Western. Division, which is nice. But they haven't won a world series Tim since one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and the. Parkway. Just something and. You can win all the divisions you want. Don't they have to win the world series? I mean. Shin Year, right because you know. Now season after season fall after fall. The talk is Ben Nearly one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, eight, and every night. You see the Kirk Gibson replay highlights and all that How do you feel if you breaks breakthrough in this kind of season I mean I simply you certainly take it because of all the obstacles, all of the other stuff that came along with this year. but you and I both know it'll come with an asterisk. And even though the the after the the sort of the dedication to protocols, the being grownups during this period you know the the isolation now going into a bubble all that stuff I mean I think. It's worthy of mention alongside of fifty game, season sixteen, team postseason chaos all this stuff but wouldn't it be funny if this was the they broke through and everyone thought you know okay you one but really you know win it in a real year. Our guest is Tim Brown National Baseball columnist for Yahoo Sports. Speaking of the dodgers mookie Betts. Came over signed a big contract before the season started had has had a tremendous year for the dodgers but who would be your national league MVP. Is it for Nando Tattoos Junior who's put the padres in play. Or is it Mookie Betts? You know this is a a fascinating sort of topic for the last few weeks because just about two weeks ago. Talking about the other League Mike Trout had a day in which he upped his opie s by seventy two points in one day. And listeners in you know the first week of September. So you know you start looking at things as you. You probably always did around September first and thought to yourself. Okay. WHO's The guy? but so much is changing. You know just last week you would have gotten a flood of votes for Jose Bray with the American. League and now the conversation is Tim. Anderson's a better place I. Even the best player on his team maybe Tim Anderson Fernando patsies junior has not had a great September If you were to pick an MVP team right now over two months, it would probably be Manny Machado. Now. mookie Betts has been amazing. Really Amazing. Especially when you consider that cody bellinger's all here Max months was not hit the way he's hitting the past. But I would say that Freddie Freeman down in Atlanta as today and stuff could change over the next four or five days is probably the most valuable player the National League. Wow. Do you go on the brain one third? No I I love that. Speaking about off the board, but they're back on the board now. Coming into the season, pick the Yankees and dodgers thought both of the two best rosters, obviously Aaron Judge and. Jean Carlos Dan couldn't stay healthy. They're back now people buried the Yankees before they went off ten wins in a row they're back they're getting healthier as the day goes on as we get closer to the play offs Judy they where do the Yankees factor in? The Yankees factor in as A really. Dangerous? Team. you know I think there's a reason why the raise one that division and that's because. They can really pitch, and in fact, I pick them to win the division because in A. Crazy year where you have to get creative and you have to have gaps and you have to have certain sort of buy INS and all those little dark corners where where you win baseball games. The raise, always really good that, and so the fact that they're going to win the division, not the Yankees not totally surprising. I think that as of right now, the Yankees draw the twins in I best at three and the twins have something about the Yankees Day just cannot get past that that series. So It's GONNA come to. Pitches. Well in the early innings those games after Garrett Cole Right I. Mean You gotTa get cold and game one presumably. And then what happens after that Tanaka or half young kid are. you know I I think the bullpen is fine. I. Think that they're going to be able to hit. but I think they're going to have to work just to get through that that division series and as a bit of an older team. A bit of creaky team in places get some maybe not a great setup for them not a single day off inside the wildcard series, which is best trie inside of the division series, which is the five or. The LCS, which is does seven that to me sounds like You might want to be a little lighter under feet little younger but you know what? The Yankees, the punchers chance they could. They could just frigging run you. With that power so Why aren't they? I think are interesting. They will be his name is Tim Brown. National Baseball columnist for Yahoo Tim. Always Brownie Man I.

Now, it's time for some diamond dust with wish TV's Phil Sanchez off. He Played Baseball College now here his LV knowledge. Well that was fast sorry to believe, but it's the final week of this shortened season and by the way. Remember when a lot of sports writers and hosts not all but a lot said that there was no way. MLB could finish a season. I do as well but I digress I personally have loved the almost sixty game season in a way that a lot like the NFL wherever game counted and fans are left wanting more. Now old school baseball traditionalists are going to hate this but I think Major League baseball can learn a lot from this season. And L., D. H. loved it Gear Games love that as well seven inning doubleheaders. Yes police sorry rob In fact, I would suggest that all games are seven innings. Now I know that it will never happen but in a day and age where people are busier than ever before and attention spans have diminished to the point of no return. Or three and a half sometimes four hour games really a model for success. Now, I know what you're thinking. You'd probably think this guy even like baseball the answer's Yes actually love baseball and that's why I'm for dramatically changing the game listen if you're over thirty five years old enough. To remember when baseball was, can you definitely old enough to remember that now? Not so much I would argue that baseball has fall into the third most popular sport behind the NFL and NBA and the NHL knocking on the door. The one of those leagues done that baseball hasn't well, they've been willing to adapt over time changes they go in short they've been progressive whereas baseball has been traditional to a fault. because. They know you and me we're not going anywhere. Well, we'll always watch baseball rubel diehards but the younger generation generation that plays fortnight and watches homemade videos on youtube over actual TV. They're not hanging around for six hours Yankees Red Sox games on the Saturday afternoon Timbre. I'm starting to break that news to you they're just not. As the saying goes if you always do what always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten. Major League Baseball. That's not good enough anymore. Bringing the closer. Here's why MLB is better than the NFL or NBA, and it isn't even close. Here's another reason why baseball is better than the NBA and the NFL as the playoffs or about to start the great thing about the play offs and we've seen this as years gone by is that Players out of nowhere rookies young players can somehow some way make a huge different and come a big time and change the course of playoffs and that's the stuff that you like to see, and that's what baseball offers. It's not very often in the other sports where somebody really really don't know or young player can have that moment. And change the course of a playoffs but I. Could Always Remember was Bob Welch against Reggie Jackson in the world series and he the Best Reggie and change the fortunes for the dodgers I can remember that. But there are a couple players out. Did it keep an eye on dustin may right handed pitcher from the dodgers the twenty-three-year-old he's a guy that could come a big for the dodgers in the postseason. He's had a really good season for LA. Another right handed pitcher to look out for is Devon. Williams from the brewers. After moving from a starting rolled into the bullpen last year Williams, man has emerged as a dominant force out of the pen in twenty, twenty. Coming into Wednesday posting a zero point three, nine, zero, Ray, and zero point. Six One whip with get this forty seven strikeouts in twenty three innings. That's eighteen point. Four strikeouts per nine innings to twenty six year old has a devastating change up one of the best pictures we we've seen in twenty twenty. So there you go look out for the kids in the postseason have an impact.

487: Nostradamus Pants

"Hello, Hello Merlin. Good, morning Dan, how are you? I'm pretty good. How are you? Feeling very professional this morning. Oh good, we can all use a little bit of wearing. Wearing three neckties three L. at one where you would expect Nah I see I see. You you do not see now I want to but very professional that's going. It's going good. Yeah. How about you? Know all right all right tired, but you know. No. Sleep patterns shifted as you know. Has Shifted yet again or staying shift. I mean I definitely, sleep more I go to bed and get up later I. Take a NAP almost every day. I, now have sort of firewall this part of the day to Somewhere between What probably two thirty and four. Try and take like an hour now, yeah! Yeah Yeah. It's good I like it a lot. I like God Dan that's that's what I did. Oh, yeah, no, that is, that is good. It's always to with second of all I. Let God and I I let go. Because when you don't worry about any more than you can take a nap, you know what I'm saying. I totally understand. Thirty! Four. What. That's when you nap. Between two thirty. Something like that I mean w creepy. No I'M GONNA. I mean I'm not going to be checking up on you. Much Down much. So a Hydra much today I've got some follow up. What's what's what's going on your neck of the woods? The weird thing is like I. Don't I. Don't have very much to report I. Mean we did get a few. You email responses. I do have a new thing that I'm trying to to get. which is always helpful to ask the listeners, but. God I mean I, you know. WEIRD TIME! It's a weird time. My kids you finally both. Finally both. Just fed up with all this crap. They're just done j just finally. Hit the point. Where they're fed up with everything. What is the express? That frustration I guess. What how how how do you What what is it about? How do they express that? My. My daughter expresses it I think by feeling. Like she she plays minecraft with some of her friends, couple of friends and now the friends are they're all fighting each other. They're all angry. They're all this person. So told this person. This and this person said that in this person is moving out of the. Minecraft House that they build together and may have been making her own house and the other one is going to go like it's. It's all very. Small when you think about it from the adults. Over we had. To sleepover, we had for my kids. I think it was ninth birthday where we had seven girls her age. They over which is like. Three Times And there were so many. Nice. It's people who want to go to bed early. People who wanna go go to bed late everybody sleeping in a different room, because then they got mad and had to go sleep in a different room, and that's I think that about my daughter's age. She is eight. Yeah Yeah That's complicated. You, know I didn't. That's a lot of this story of status. Stuff is starting to kick in a little bit You know with with young girls. And so she? You're right about that. And so that? And so, what would she wished were different. Do you suppose right? I'm I'm just asking. A super social girl. She love seeing her friends. She loves school because it's the social aspect for her. She gets to see different people and talk to them and play and and. You get so little of that, and so a lot of it has been through like you know I think like for kids. One of the social networks I think a lot of people don't even think about as being a social network is is craft I mean. You build things together. You play together. You can explorer, and there's ways to play it where it's. There's fun there's games. There's all kinds of other stuff. That can happen in there and I think that became or because become kind of a social outlet for them, and so all the stuff that. You know that you want to get out of real world interaction. You can't get so it kind of tries to happen there, but that's not a very good substitute for. That's not a very good. Thing to to try to there, so this is a very this is. We're in the seventh month of this least six months? I guess you know the the fourth month of the lockdown type stuff, but you know it's I. Feel like it could be easy for adults to forget how different time feels when you're a kid. How like health fraud? For a man of my age, it's like Oh my God Christmas music now. Yeah, we just did that many months ago. When you're little kid to school, year feels the equivalent of five years long for Louis feels for an adult I feel like an eternity for someone her age. Yeah, yeah, I mean sure it has to in for my son I, think he's just finally gotten. It's it's much easier for him to enjoy video games and Youtube and stuff like that, and so for a long time. That was just kind of. Cool for him, but now he's saying I just can't be in his house any longer you know. And, it's like there's even just saying like. I can't just say. Let's just go to target you know because like that's like a whole thing of like well. What time are you going to go and root? How many masks you're gonNA wear, and how long you spend inside and you know they don't really want you to do that. You know so we go on walks touch anything anything. Don't be like like. We used to good a mountain other all close, but when my kid was real little, we used to go to borders all the time. Oh, yeah at the mall near our house and we just you know whatever. Sometimes in the afternoon or evening we just scoot over after after like a preschool. Over to borders and we just hang out like. Mostly. Like laying across the aisle. Reading, anime and stuff like that, but look you could get coffee, and you could hang out and you could get a toy. You can get up book you know it was. It wasn't just that it was a retail adventure. It was just a little bit of an easy destination with like known enjoyable stuff. We have a library one minute walking from our house. That has been closed for two to three months. I'm like that now. You're just denied all of those opportunities to have a destination, right? That where you could just go find adventure caving. Go out to breakfast. It's really really sucks. It really sucks. All the things that are listening already knows this, but you know there's in fact there's a side effect of having everything that you. Everything that you do has kind of a a different way of doing that. You can't just do the normal things that you WANNA do like. You can't meet someone for lines. You can't even really get lunch you know and it's. It's just such a strange time right now and I know. I've known a number of people that have had to travel have been doing traveling and the the extreme measures that it now takes to travel, and then is that even safe and who knows? That's a topic. I'd like to talk about today. To that I, because I know not trying to stop you, but I. I WANNA I WANNA. Put on our nostradamus pants and look into the future about what industries. It's difficult to imagine not changing. Do you know what I mean? Either going away or fundamentally needing to like sort of rewrite how it's done yeah yeah. I feel. I always feel this comes out is also for some reason. I'm reminded of the wonderful well. Thirty rock part of the thirty rock special was wonderful. The peacock shows are living garbage, but the thirty rock part was great. If you're a thirty rock fan, obviously do not miss. This I have watched it three times so good, but. There's so many great lines one of my favorites. Is Jennifer Maloney. Jane Kelsey character is something like Liz. Corinthian has been hardest on hot extroverts. You know, there's like Roderick and I were talking about people. Being denied their platform. extroverts don't have a platform right now. What are you gonNA do like I. Don't Know Sh. Paint your nails or detect cake on instagram I mean. I is this again now? Wonderful Jenna term backdoor. Brag, or what does she call you back door? Brag I don't mean to Brag Oh. That's a new term for me. What does that mean? Oh God. What's the IT's in? The suggests telling Kenneth. Kenneth wants to be the page. It goes to the Olympics in Beijing and Paul Scheer is undermining him. And he has to his essay. He's I don't. Know what to say. Like well. Do the backdoor Brag like? Oh well, you know it's hard. It's hard for me to watch American idol because they have perfect pitch. And he goes Oh. She goes, you try. He goes. It's hard for me to change hard for me to change the channel because there's a water bug on my clicker. Anyway back to a wreck. Okay I'll say. I feel so fortunate. Fortunate Fortunate. There's ways in which if my kid was one year younger or older, it would be so much harder, but the fact that she exited public life. Having friends with iphones and IPADS. She text with facetime with I. Mean I'm not saying it's easy, but I think she's very mentally healthy. She gets up every morning dresses. All the way sometimes puts on a cool hat. I mean like it's what I I barely do that where the same thing every day, but she's like she's. She's having fun with it. SHE GETS TO BE IN A. Little kind of a bell jar, not Petri dish, but she her own little ovarian where she gets to. Try stuff out like and not have it. Be criticized by you know. Kids at school or whatever but. But, like you know and so, but that's not gonNA, last forever, and a certainly I have to imagine her. Math skills are probably going down the toilet right now. Because I don't like teaching math and she doesn't like learning. As and by the way, so is the same story for me and everyone else probably i. don't know man. Roderick sounds like he's practically as. Dork. Yeah by me so I. You know asking her. You know what's twenty four times fourteen I was like I would need. Fifteen minutes or an iphone to tell you that. How I mean through twenty five fifteen. Oh, that's better. Just gotTa jump in Merlin with a quick. Thank you to squarespace square space.

Who? For example yesterday. My wife text me and say Oh my God. She and three of her friends got together. They get together on facetime almost every afternoon. There are playing ukulele together. They'd all been in Ukulele class together, so they were all playing. Diogo. And you'll be back from Hamilton together. So that's good, but. You know it's. Kind of such a broken record about this, but. You know. I don't think you have to be a professional. Psychology expert to know about the important stages of development the windows of opportunity. Not Not to say eight a window closes forever, but things are. Difficult or less difficult at a certain time in life. I've heard for example that. It's much easier to learn a second language. Before eight X I'm not sure it Ajax's but something like probably five six seven. Right something like that that you're you. There's so much sort of moist fecundity in your mind that you can absorb a second language without so the ministering your language. What like that? That is that is a that is a US non avoid use. The US is learn language when you're very young. Then, of course there are the avoids like your kids should not see a screen before there to there's all kinds of things, but I I know I mean. I can't cite literature on this, but I know how important certain kinds of social interaction are at a given age range. In order to be in a position to move to the next thing, you know what I mean, you can't generally when you can learn arithmetic I you learn, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Well. You know you're not gonNA. You'RE NOT GONNA learn the quadrant equation if you don't know how to subtract. You know what I mean. I wonder what six months of if we're doing this right and please people I hope we're doing this right six months of almost no exposure to other people. But. Importantly you're also lacking other people's exposure to you like you don't get the. That's six months. Of No uncle that six months of no grandma, It's you know what I mean. It's six months of for damn sure a lot less sunshine even in San Francisco. I don't know. But even all in with all of that said. I'm one of those panicky people things we need to shut everything almost all the way down I think we need to at least to the bananas April levels of shut down at this point. Personally. I keep hearing things that say that if you know if if everyone cooperated for like two weeks six weeks fine. Yes, six. Yeah, you've. Heard yeah, well the. Interesting headline yesterday from. Interviews with a bunch of teachers about what okay listen y'all say you really want schools to open. Are you willing to do these things because this is one? It's GonNa. Take and the headline was something like. I didn't read the article, but I just thought. Headline was something like If you ever want your kids to go back to school, you, everyone will have to stay in their house until September. So I mean. I don't think that's going to happen. You know peop-, because well, and the other thing is I've also heard that like. If, we all were mask and social distance correctly for you, and here's what I WANNA know. Here's what I want to know and I'm not hearing. This I'm not hearing this story. And that is I'm not hearing. Stories from people who say. I. I wear a mask all the time, I. Distance and I still got sick. Get Ads. The thing that I have not heard and I'm not saying that that's not happening. I'm saying I'm not reading it in the news I'm not I'm not hearing anecdotally, not seeing or hearing that at all from anyone and what that tells me if you combine that with what scientists and doctors are saying is. That that actually works that if two people are wearing masks and their social. Zero I mean zero strong word. You'RE NOT GONNA get it. That's what they're saying. You'RE NOT GONNA! Get no I totally agree with you. I have not heard a ton of stories, but if I did hear stories about that I would think that's totally normal. The thing that is so there's many things I did not get about this initially that I still again I'm not a professional anything. Title! But I but one of the things I didn't understand was. Boy, there's so much stuff where we need to get away from black white thinking where we need to get away from you know the everybody's second favorite cognitive bias. If it's not all of this, then it must be none of that it's. Okay, you know like well, you know if if masks don't work one hundred percent of the time to a hundred percent, save me well, then you know. Why would I wear? Why would I wear a seatbelt? A cartoon style bank vault could still fall on more my car car, and you're like well. Yeah, but that's such a non sequitur I mean. If having a mask on reduces your chances of exposure and reduces the chance of other people's exposure. That's good and like. Why don't you be a big boy where your mask like a person? But so back to the thing I understood is. Two words from this pandemic I don't love. Shedding And viral load yeah. Yeah I did not realize that it's very much, not an all or nothing proposition. That you can be exposed to a little bit. Virus from little bit. Just a tip the, but you could be to just a little bit of somebody who doesn't have it a lot I, guess! And you're less likely to get it then a huge exposure with a with a lot of shedding from somebody who has a lot which finally explains why you could have like one bar that ends up causing one hundred and fifty people to become ill right because one person in their going, but I try to scream over the DJ while they do the funky chicken and screaming at some lady like yeah, well, if that person's very shetty and loyalty. To of the less, no nine doors. That you follow what I'm saying so if you're around somebody who doesn't have it, and you have a mask on no harm, no foul, if you're around if you're if you're both wearing masks and somebody has a a smaller amount of the shedding viral load, or whatever it's called well, that's good, too, and if that person has a lot well, it improves your odds improves. Improves your chances. You know it's you know I. mean. Somebody that I know are recently took a trip. They flew on an airplane and they went to stay with older relatives and I thought this was like a completely crazy thing to do. Right now, but will you know what she did? Is She was She wore a mask that had two layers and filter inside of it when she was on the plane. You know she didn't. She didn't touch anything. He's handle religiously. She pointed the vent at her face because they say just even like you're just just what you're saying. Even a little bit of air movement can be enough to make all the difference in the world. They say that you know like opening a window in a in a room where there's lots of people in letting brazen can reduce it. Jim McVeigh taught school outside. That's how they kept schools open race difference so like she did all of that stuff, and it's been three weeks now. She's fine. You know, but the kind of thing is like. People are they're not doing that? And then my response was great. That's that's fine for Merlin, but what do you do when the person three feet away from? You is one of those people that has their nose popped out of the mask for whatever reason sitting next to Ted, Cruz and he's enjoying his can of soup with no mask on five hours right? I mean that's the thing is. Is it's not? I saw something on twitter. That was saying the reason that I'm not going to deliver this well, but they were not even GonNa. Try to reproduce the joke because I'll get it wrong, but they were basically saying like the reason that this didn't work in America is because we said. You should wear masks to protect other people, and for the joke is Americans don't care about other people. They only care about themselves and. because. It's true it's true, and it's like I. Say so many people with their nose poking out and I don't I'd like I. I want to talk. About it, but it's like when I want to. I want to understand I WANNA stink. Do I want to ask the people. Do you think that you're wearing your mask correctly because i? Feel like there's a chance that they think they're doing it right. I have to start there. I have to think these people think that they are doing the right thing. They're doing it right. They put the mask on. That just couldn't really breathe so good with my nose in there, or are they saying wearing a conduct wearing a condom like a neck gator, cutting the top off and just having it comfortably rest upon the shabby. Rags for useful for what we're trying to accomplish well, but but the thing is I have to wonder if people don't really know that like when I when I think. We talked about this, but when the whole mask wearing thing I started I would see lots and lots of people driving around in their cars with their mask on alone in the car. And so I. I didn't understand that. Why. Why would you have it on if it's just you in the car and you're alone in the car and so? I did a little twitter poll. And you know what a lot of the answers really surprised me. A lot of people would say well. Gupta on CNN, said you should put it on in the morning and not take it off till the end of the day. So that's what I do. Okay, so they're following instructions that they got which were wrong, but they got those on I. Think they don't let that Guy Sleep Yeah. That was everything that was one. That was one thing that I heard another thing that people set is I wouldn't want to create a cloud of virus inside the car so that if I had to open the window to shout at a someone riding a bike that I wouldn't expose them to my germs, which by the way I don't think I have 'cause I haven't been exposed I mean there's lots of there are so many reasons why people were doing this and. And but at the end of the day, all of them came out as being mainly centered in what seemed like fear that either they don't know what they're supposed to do. They don't WanNa. Do it wrong. They're unsure and you know what it reminded me of the beginning of the AIDS crisis where we didn't know if we could, there was a cause was caused by paupers rate. You know he's like path. Houses was that it was in the air and Bath House. Who what's causing this quote, unquote, Gay Cancer, or you shake you shake hands with someone. And now you got it or you sit down in a movie theater seat and armrest has it and now you have aids like we, but the thing is. We didn't know like we did not know. The science didn't tell us anything, and it took them a long time to figure out who what the real causes were in how you could get it and. I think it's weird because. There has been no consistent information. About Hoven at all this entire time. And now that's being weaponized being weaponized by this administration to say Oh, one day they said do wear one to the. You know. When did they say you got to wear? You can't wear a mask. You shouldn't wear messy the next day. They say you got to wear a mask. Well. Okay well. Okay, so so I know there's a lot about science that's extremely confusing to sixteen hundred. Pennsylvania Avenue, but one of the neat things about science is you expect to be wrong and the part of the interrogation that happens with the scientific method is by understanding is that you're constantly looking for the thing that might be wrong or might might be incorrect might be off. Your methodology is wrong. That's what that's. What makes it science instead of? Religion. It isn't like it got written down once and you get a t shirt. That says God said. I believe that that settles it. That's not science. The science part is based on the best evidence that we have right now. It looks like this is a way to help this so to try, and you know as they say through Dr Faucher under the bus or Dr Burks under the bus for for changing their messaging on on Mass I. That's so lame. It's just. I mean I'm not going to go beat up evangelical because the loaves and fishes stories seems a little outlandish, but. beat up on the preeminent public health official in the United States. Also. I'm not saying there are elements of this movie that have not aged well, but we came out in nineteen ninety-three huge impact on me. A book written by local will make good randy shields, and the band played on. Yes, do really recommend not least because you're GonNa see this bananas cast. That's in this. Including Syrian. pity Wong Matthew Modine so just murderers row of great actors. So I'll put that into show notes. It's probably store up on HBO. No, you're. You're absolutely right, but. I don't know I'm just you know. There's just so much bad faith. Out there right now and Bad faith is increasing increasingly something that. I'm trying to avoid. Because, I have to be honest. Places like twitter have just become such an orgy of bad faith. There's so much. feigned outrage about things, and there's so much well like you know. I'm here to speak for the trees while the trees. Are Good. They don't. They don't need you to be there knight in shining armor. and. It's just it's so frustrating because. I. I too would like things to be normal and I, too would like both of our moms to live. Yeah exactly selfishly would love for my kid. To have a life again the mind, let my kid be thirteen when she will be. For a live. In October, and you know it's, but we're not going to get anywhere near that. Unless. We stop being so goddamn ignorant. In thinking that we can seek out these minor victories. You know that. Are GonNA somehow forestall the? Catastrophe? That's falling honest more every day and it's. It's menacing and it's frustrating and it's. The. You know the the the most I can do, but the slightly more than least I can do is our family tries to be good about this? We don't go places and. We. Do try I mean we'd donate need money to things we. My wife volunteers at the you know when they get out to people and. But. It really is going to take a a group effort. That I'm not sure we have in US I. Think the some of the things that made the diversity that made America so theoretically interesting for so long. Is Looking more and more like the thing that could be. Are Doing. Hey Dan Then I. WanNa talk more about this about the crisis. That's this ravaging. I would love to hear about something you like. I would love to tell you about feels. Feels all the stuff that we've been talking about stress anxiety, chronic pain trouble sleeping like that's a description of me. That's a description of a lot of people right now, I think and to be honest. There isn't a lot that you can do to change our environment to change our situation to change what we're doing, but we can change. A little bit at least is ourselves and one of the things that has really really really helped me. personally is CBD and feels makes the CBD that I use. Now I've actually switched over to them. Completely They're great so people. A lot of people know what CBD is but for those who don't basically CBD is something that naturally helps reduce stress, anxiety, pain and sleeplessness. You put a few drops of feels under your tongue, and you will feel the difference within just a few minutes. It's There's no high. As you don't get hung over from it. There's no addiction from it. and it works naturally. It's all natural, and it really truly does help. It's helped me tremendously and and it. It might be able to help you, too, and it's worth trying. I think they have a hotline. You can call them where you can talk to them about what you're experiencing and they'll make recommendations. They have little CBD flights that they send you with different CD's of different strengths, so you can find the perfect match for you, it's. It's a really great service. It gets delivered to your door every month and you save money on every order you can posit or cancel it at any time, but once you start using CBD. You'll find out how much it helps you and the fact that they delivered on that schedule to you is so nice because you're never going to be in that situation where you're like running out of it, and that's not what you want to happen. So feels is spelled. F. E., A. L. S. FEELS DOT com slash back to work. That's where you're gonNA. Go and if you go to that, you are l.. FEELS DOT com slash back to work.

You get your fifty percent automatically taken off your first. With shipping and we sure do appreciate their support. Thanks very much to feels for making this show possible. Thanks fields but but. I was going to read you. A few of the cast members of the band played on. Okay is. Matthew Modine. Alan alda. In mcallen. Lily Tomlin! Beatty Wong Phil Collins Steve Martin. Richard Gere Anjelica Huston. That's just a few. Remember Steve Martin was in that. Steve Martin played. Let me look here I. Rethink in Hall Wasn't Alan Alda the guy who is like the other French? Yeah, he's like fighting the French and yeah. He kinda stole their stuff. Yeah! He's good. He was like in the period where I feel like he was I. There was that. Of course much later, there was the aviator. There was whispers in the dark spoiler where he started playing a bad guy and. God who good in those roles. So I if I may, here's been thinking a lot about is what's going on in Atlanta where Kisha lands bottoms is the mayor of Atlanta African. American woman, Atlanta has a lot about it. That's interesting. It's a very large city. It's ironically enough where the CDC is based. And it's. In a state that's having a heck of a problem right now. Aunt, but so you're gonNA mayor in Atlanta. Who? Has a Pov, and then you've got. Governor has got a different POV. Other things know about her. Her Kid. Apparently according to her, she was on. CNN yesterday talking about this. Her kid apparently got covid amylase symptomatic and give it to her and her husband. So the mayor of Atlanta, had it and the mirror husband had it. He was apparently very very ill. Like you know. If you've heard the stories about people who have to get on their hands and knees in order to breathe like that that bad, so you know in addition to being really. I I really admire her I. Think She's great I think she'd be a good. Vp Pick for Biden I. think she's awesome. But so she I believe. May did a mask mandate. I think that's how that started was something like last week? She said hey look from now on. You're GONNA wear masks in public and right now. The governor of Georgia is suing her personally. He personally is suing her personally. To say that her mandate. From asks is. Not not the office suing the office. It's just it's so weird to say that. The mayor of Atlanta where the CDC is based is not allowed to say. She's overstepping her authority according to him. Overriding his double secret mask mandate ban. And so that's that's happening right now. which is which is just it's just. Stuff like that happens what you're going through with Abbott there. It's so shocking to me. You know it's so. It's Venal, and it's so difficult not to see this. As part of some kind of death cult, some kind of like I said to my wife. It reminds almost something like snow piercer like some kind of like gay. Distortion speculative fiction that involves children being fed into a machine to keep the stores open, right. I mean I don't mean to be bleak, but guys bleak. Anyway! Oh. Wait about her. And now it is escaping me. I'll probably come back and screaming at you later when it occurs to me, but you know cases just keep climbing climbing climbing in the governor's like bread and circuses. Bringing on, let's party. Yeah, there's something there's something just so weird about. About the the differences of opinion, because it's, it's very much like an opinion thing and that's that's when I'm listening to talk about this and I'm thinking about all all that I'm hearing. It's it really is like opinion. Still no one accepts, and that's the other weird thing is. What our government and leadership is doing can be at odds with what medicine is saying and what scientists saying and both of those things are at odds with each other, and then both of those are at odds with what people are doing because there's never been a clear message because people don't follow instructions at least here in our country. You know they don't listen. They do what they're asked to do what they're told to do. They get angry. About it and it's so funny because it's like. If we had just done and a lot of his. Did I'm pretty sure everybody listening to US Merlin? And you know they did the smartest audience in the world I. Totally think so, and I think that they did the right thing they when they were told to wear a mask, they did if anything they weren't alone in their car. Good on them. You know link. Our listeners are the kinds of people I don't WanNa. Touch it I. Want to take it off. I'm terrified to do anything and they're. They're fine. We're not the ones they're spreading it and most of them are not the ones getting sick. And like if we all just. Did this one stupid difficult thing universally? For for for a few weeks, it would just be gone. It would be done, but that's the other thing that I've always wondered about like the flu season to. The flu season? It's like every year. It's the same thing and I. Think Mass would help with that to you know my. My son is asking me this morning. We were on a walk and he said He's like well. He's A. Discount get better in. The wintertime when he starts getting colder will what will be going on I said I said I think it'll be worse because we're gonNA. Have the flu season? and. I said you know you think about flu symptoms and cold symptoms and covert symptoms. They all start out pretty similar. You're going to have way more people thinking that they have it and doing other things, and it's GonNa be screwed up then to, but even with the flu. It's my understanding anyway that. We're talking about the Nice today where you go to the Shampoo I'll. Think. Shampoo and it's like well. Get ready for a journey because there's a lot of shampoo here, says thing. Flu is kind of I think like thing shampoo like every year first of all. We have a vaccine for the flu. Flus. But. It's my understanding that that is tricky, too. Because you have to put h each year, it's not like you have a whole bunch of this. That's been sitting around for thirty years. You make a new as my understanding and every knew flu vaccine every year that tries to anticipate to the best of your ability tries to anticipate the strains and off sheets that are most likely to be widespread and cause trouble and so forth, and then give it to people. Does it. Make the flu, not happen. Now, the flu still happens. People get the flu. Especially people who didn't get a vaccination dyson repeating calendar reminder for me every year to get a flu vaccination now anyway, but like okay, so, what does it do though okay? What does several things again? I'M GONNA. Stop saying it's my understanding. Just please imply that from now on you get the flu vaccine. Okay well. There's a pretty good chance that's going to help you not get the flu. any of the Flus, but it might help you have even if it's not even if the vaccine that they came up with is not totally on point for the flu that ends up being the problem. It turns out that you may have a may be less severe case of that flu because you got vaccinated. And all of this then comes all the way back to guess what the fewer people that have the flu fewer people that get the flu because you're not spreading it. We've been through this everybody. This is. I mean it's it's. It's so bananas to me. What was that? What was I going to say to you about the flu and kids I could do a second sponsor while you remember. I. Guess I hate when I can't remember things Dan talking about something like I'd love to tell you about indeed, indeed, indeed I would one of the greatest challenges that we are. All facing is taking the information. It's available knowing where to focus. This is the same problem with hiring and you know there's a lot of people right now that the world has not stopped because of Covid, we. Need to get new jobs. They still need to hire. And with indeed you have access largest pool of talent, and you can hire the right people and you can hire them fast. INDEED DOT COM, the number one job site in the world because they gave you the best people fast, that's it that's. It's as simple as that. We. Let me we could end the spy right there. That's but here's the cool part about it. Unlike other sites keyed, gives you full control and payment flexibility hiring you only pay for what you need. You can pause your account anytime. Yeah, there's no long term contracts, and they have powerful tools that make your search much much easier and much more effective, so they have sponsored jobs which are shown to be three and a half times more likely to result in higher. They've got A. They've found that seventy three percent of online job seekers visited indeed each month. Like indeed is going to work for you. It's going to get you the people that you need and they have for. For over three million businesses so right now they're offering our listeners a free seventy five dollars credit to boost your job post. So what that means is more candidates are going to see it, and they're gonna see it faster so in order to do that. You go to indeed I. n, D, E D indeed dot com slash back to work. That's the place to go to get your seventy five dollars credit. Go check it out. They want me to say that terms and conditions apply, and they want me to say that the offer is valid through September thirtieth, so go check it out. INDEED DOT com slash back to work. Thanks for much of them for making the show possible. Thanks indeed but but. You were saying. You saying you saying something along the lines of about. I guess how you hear different messages from people, and there's different amounts of what we know at a given time and what we know changes, right? That's sort of what you were saying. Yeah. Everything that's going on is different, and where you who who you listen to is different, and what they tell, you is different. It's like stop. You know how it's enforced how your neighbors feel. Are you going to get called a pussy at the grocery store a mask? Yeah, I had a friend who lives up. Everything is reached so regional. He lives up in Ohio. And and he said to me he sees like you wearing a mask like yeah of course I am. He's like I'm like. Are you not like? If I wore one here I'd be the only one people would point and stare me and maybe beat me up and he lives in a really rural area and hear that in Florida too so strange to me. Well, I mean it's this more macho s you know. But so so I think we could even problem ties this even a little more. Hi, welcome to back to work the preeminent COVID podcast. We could problem it. Is this even more because? Yes what we know changes. The way that information flows Oh border. There are a lot of problems with the way that information flows right now. We don't have time to get any anywhere near into that, but then not only does it change, but it lags like who acts on what Atta given time lags. What's the running joke for the last thirty forty years is the like. Scientists announces you know. Apple's will definitely kill you. Insane announced that not eating apples will definitely kill you. Come on. Up Your mind like remember when everything was like a low fat. You can have all the car you want. You just sit down and eat a every morning. because. It didn't have fat. It's good for you and that changed over time we started have a different view of that and turns out turns out turns out so there's all of that I mean on top of everything else. If you're looking for the best information well, the best information is is is fresh and complete an honest and it's. Very difficult to find all of those things. But to your other point though. So I feel like. You know different people have different responses to this and the fact that again the mayor, or the rather the governors of Texas and Georgia. Such homemade tailings, and it's just it's. It's so brutal, and nobody's without sin I mean even people like Gavin newsom and Cuomo like boy. There's a lot of probably could have done better, but. But like I feel like the in the absence of information that is perfect. Why don't I I know this isn't free? I know this isn't without cost, but why don't we? All Walk. It way way down for a while. Well, why don't we do that well? It's really bad for the economy. It's bad for jobs. To different like classic San Francisco Restaurants Near My neighborhood of closed the cliff house out by the ocean, beaches closed Oh. Oh, follow up! Sorry, we're having the listeners name in front of me. I Apologize, but I guess somebody who's in Pinellas county flea market I mentioned last week. The wagon wheel it closed in March and it's really it's done. Because of it's. Very interesting story, yeah, started out basically in the sixties as a place where this guy could sell guns. He expanded expanded expanded to this. And I I went and again looked at that site. It's really really really big. It's a lot of real estate to have sitting there. Anyhow. So I understand it's not without cost, but there's another option to this. That has a much higher cost which is to half ass this. Because when you have facet, you go back to one like we re set. You, and so the thing, okay, we'll try to get as the thing that drives me. Bananas is when people I again I. Don't. There's a reason I'm not in the corner office, but when somebody like L. as Mayor Garcetti out and says Oh man. Wow it's really really I mean. Go look at the numbers for La. It's crazy Braley and he's like ooh. ooh, I! Don't know We're definitely lake. Code Orange. Does that mean. It's bad. It's like four out of five. Yeah. We're really close to go to read. Like Dude, why don't you go to read now? What what do you gain? In Economic? Improvement by having so many people making so many other people sick. What are you waiting for? Lake and the thing I said to say this to I. Think said this to Roderick probably after the show yesterday, but. I was on a bath on over the weekend. And I do this thing where I run the water all the way hot because of physics. Alway Hot About halfway up. Don't email me and then I start adding cold water. Until. It's close to where I'd like it to be. Why don't we get it too close to where I'd like it to be because if I wait until this is again, physics, if I wait until the bathwater is exactly the temperature that I want now, it's too late and the water's cold and getting colder. I had to get it to where it's still a little bit too hot in order for it to be any kind of bath that I could enjoy for a few minutes following her saying yes. And like I don't know why, but standing in the bathtub nude the this weekend. Sorry for the mental image commanding me on the. Retreating covert where it's like Oh, boy, you know. We've got to get this phone and get this just right, but you know. You could instead if you. The lives of millions of people rather than ten minute bath? How about you let it? How about we let this really just call? Before we try to do anything too cute. And I feel like the reopenings are like. I. Don't know a little too much cold water. It's a really strained analogy, but I don't think they're I, think history I suspect history will reflect. There was very little benefit, short medium or long-term from sitting on this stuff and hoping that a minimal effort with slightly lower impact would actually take care of it. Each time we pop her head up out of that logo for whole. Restart, gotTa go back. I like a bath. I forget I am so sorry. I forget who I tell. What did I tell you? My I don't think i. told you that time. My recent walgreens anecdote. I I don't think so. I think yeah I think it was like told Siracusa on the show. That comes out Thursday but long story short. I have to go pick up my monthly prescription that walgreens which in the best of circumstances, is a real pain in the terrible walgreens and. Anyway in my socially distance line and I'm waiting long story short the person in front of me. Is. Of course only ever behind somebody WHO's bought trying to refinance their house and this person is saying Blah Blah Blah's available in the generic version Blah Blah Blah. Oh and by the way that I mentioned. This person had her mask around her neck. Five or six of those? And the pharmacy says. Could you please put your mask all the way on? so I. She grudgingly puts her mask anyway. like I said to Syracuse. It reminds me of that scene in caddyshack. Where Ted Knight's telling the Bishop the the taste, tasteless joke, and the turns, and you realize that you know he's got the priest's collar. Woman finish our transaction. She turned around and she's a nurse in a nurse's uniform from a mobile hospital. Wow! I was so angry. She five I, really big dry coughs, and no mask on and the the lady I mean. I don't know she was attack or a nurse, but she had the. That the SCRUBS, but the uniform of distinctive uniform of a local hospital. And you know it's just wild to me that the pharmacy, not not the pharmacist. The pharmacist assistant lady had to say to her. Please put your mask on as you cough all over my plexiglass. It's so why not done talking about this? It's just I'M GONNA put my marker down. I, will I will I'm to be like Christian Bale and the big short in the end. I will take no pleasure in collecting my five dollars for this, but we will. Perhaps, even by the end of the year, we will look back at this time. As. Not just one loss opportunity, but. My count probably three lost opportunities that we just blew because we didn't want to look at what was really happening. And Boys at ever GONNA screw up for a long time. which kind of gets the top guy? We're going to too much today, but. We we touched on this. I feel like probably second or third week of the cover times, but. It is to me. It's interesting to sort of extrapolate just parlor game to extrapolate. What kinda stuff you know closer to do a few minutes to talk about this. Yeah, I mean. We got The a couple of minutes for. Well we get maybe put on the table and just toss it out a little bit to talk about maybe for next time because we need a good topic. What are the things that? Will are likely to change in the medium and long term will. There's some I feel like there's some stuff we've seen already dining restaurants and bars. What it's GonNa be tough for a while. That's. That's going to have to be different if they if and when they do reopen any way. I mean, we keep zooming. This vaccine is just got a parachute out of the sky, because of all this horse race reporting by the by the fake news media now, but the horse race reporting about the the race to the vaccine I feel is. Almost certainly irrationally exuberant. But you know even if we even when we do get a vaccine. Okay, here's another change. What does this tell us about future infrastructure? When problems with schools, the schools were never designed to accommodate these kinds of things. What changes in planning our cities look different. Will our public transit look different? What stuff will just totally go away? What stuff might replace it? You know what I'm saying like. Oh! What are the things that we can imagine? Even just I mean even getting away from like what we've seen already. The Cliff House has gone. That sucks a really good meal there. Earlier this year. But you know. You know what I'm saying like. People are GonNa have to travel sometimes. So how do you travel to? How do you? How do you address travel in a way that number one accommodates stuff we know is out there right now, but also. Not We can't ever future-proof, but we can be a little bit future resistant. What are we start planning in changing for? What might come next? Bill Gates have been talking about this for years that this was going to happen. Is that an interesting topic possibly for the future? Yes, definitely. Definitely! Yeah I mean. There's an article that I am going to put in notes. Not because it makes me happy, but because it really made me think and it was a wonderful piece last week in in A. Magazine I subscribe subscribe to you. Call in these times. And it was this amazing and depressing. While article we take a few big steps back and look at all these different things. All these different systematic infrastructure failures all these things. It's sort of like that Michael Lewis Book. You know the fifth wrists like all these things that have failed starting. Let's say with Kobe, but even stuff like George, Floyd and The the protests. But because so much further. Basically, it's this article. I feel like so lucidly immersive Leslie addresses how the one failure! Affects all the other failures and vice versa. And so now we are about ten days away from that six hundred dollars a week. Thing drying up. There is going to be unless something changes. There's going to be on top of the housing crisis that we have right now. There's going to be a huge wave of addictions coming. When that happens, that's what people on the street to get sick. or in a shelter, or wherever or jammed into a multigenerational house I mean you have to be? Nuts about this. It isn't like somebody you know moves from their mansion into a hefty bag all the time, but that's that that just that one thing is huge to take away that money that kept people. Managing their life a little bit better. That's GONNA. Go Away. L. The payroll tax cut. At School! But anyway put it in Shona. It's because I do think. I do think it's important to grasp. This is this is. Big My! MOM IS SO tired of people talking about this. She's so mad. They always talk about this on TV but. There's no other story until we clear this one right. Yeah Yeah I. Mean This, is it? This is the main thing is this is the story. Almost. Gone. That's good. That's very good. Car Have Boredom. Fifty five full rats slow. You know there's like one left for a while. Until the others. Fall into the barrel. That's a really good movie. Wagon wheel flies Beta funds. Go. nostradamus pants. Dan, I think I think that's I'm sorry. That was such a depressing episode, but now it's the best of the best ones the ones where it's depressing. People. I know you're tired of hearing this. Do all the things you've been asked to do, but also please start socializing this more actively with people you know. Maybe I don't know. Maybe that doesn't work. Maybe maybe it's a Fox News, GRANDPA problem, and just the entire country is going to go down the tubes because. One guy with a thumb for ahead doesn't like the way his goatee feels under a mask. Bringing jobs are. It's like. We're all in this together it's. Like Robert De. Niro says in Brazil brawling together. Say the number. One this up all right. Take the Lovey Lovey boomer the man. A.

Oh Yeah so you've actually Phoenix online by I then heard that US USC is one in three other collecting this but then I thought Laurie Lachlan's or going to prison and felicity Huffman's in jail to save up all thin and it was sort of like okay so why everyone saving for college if if that's the tickets is true and then drew inform me it's now one in four oh you think about an automotive worker these days kind of a little bit like job security details of the new deal have not been revealed to anyone but a union spokesperson says it represents major gains for U. A. W. Workers this strike was called Aliens Piloting robots working robot much more replaceable than the guy who was building the engine weird that they're people are waiting in line and paying people five hundred thousand dollars to send their daughters to go get assaulted yeah millimeters so it seems like even the people that are working in the factories are kind of replaceable now because they're keeping the workers walked off the job on September sixteenth after their four year contract expired without a new one employees workers demanded higher wages more affordable healthcare Asharq prophets one in three women at USC they're higher oh shocking yeah actually yeah there was Berkeley USC and somewhere else in California's very now to be I don't WanNa have a sociological sure why not yeah no here's why would you WanNa do that because personal in the times when right good things about Lemaigre teague or whatever it is a lot of skill that a skill there and hard to be replaced by a scab or or whomever now think about worse Malik Automation Automation admission when you'RE A fabricator you're welder and you really can handle ends by hand in the forties in the fifties that's super high machinists skill level working laid down two millimeters or ten the well there but the guy who's watching the welding machine could be replaced too pretty easily but for today emerging money without these can't even imagine four hundred million a day this report says I'm so much stock up smoking cigarettes but he does blame the guitar picks so Dr Tom mickle right the medical officer at the British medical consultation service called push doctor he it's crazy it's also kind of weird that people are still just were just stamping out steal cars and roll them down assembly carpet and we're all that's Dr Van Halen spoken and that's that well a doctor is refuting that I don't know if you're surprised to hear it that he developed cancer you work there there babysitting a lot of technology and I know it's more than that but I mean as we keep going not only do we not need gaines goes the military so remember when I told you that Eddie van Halen as theory about how he got cancer yeah the metal IOS found in brass are considered carcinogenic in any way oh maybe it was that Makita cordless drill yeah idea if I get on the right meds or if I stopped drinking I won't be fun I won't be creative I won't be funny well think about how much the grabbing break five all those crazy trump's we get in trouble drill Makita made the first ones and they like wrapped it up tape and then just like painted silver something then pulled the tape off but thessaly got Bluetooth now but it's the same it's the same technology now the model t so remember what I told you what he's talking about major game well we've talked about it before but it's it's weird that it's sad that so many talented people have to be head cases as well after keeping that guitar pick in his mouth during shows the guitarist was treated as I said for tongue cancer in two thousand third of his tongue was removed he was declared cancer hold insider that Van Halen's health issues we're likely not caused by Guitar Pec in an interview published Monday he said he cited the fact that neither copper nor the cystic people a lot of artistic successful people think if they get help they won't be them anymore they won't be the person that got them famous which in a lot of ways is ridiculous but it's hard to let go of that free in two thousand and two but he's still going back and forth it seems to Germany for radiation in two thousand fifteen in an interview with billboard Van Halen revealed that he'd given This young carpenter and Rocker I I knew what I was looking at yeah he was taken this cordless drill to his electric guitar I at that going for us but imagine think about I mean let's think about of Brusett od thirty one just think about all the product and that we now I know Kimmel's I don't know if that's the way Kimmel's in Brooklyn but I know he's going to Brooklyn in the next week or so so I think Kimmel's going to Brooklyn would you like to guess how much this was called Oh God a day well couple couple things a good song about that video it's like he just took a nine point six zero pound cake I took like the first Chen Cordless Oh and Bruce is going to be there and Italian Lynette are going to see Bruce I'm a little behind 'cause recording concert live layers tours through Lee being healthy you know keeping after himself and whatever just cost cranking it out Max van I don't know if Bruce must be plain Kimmel's or something I think Kimmel's going to New York and Bruce's going there there's kid is over rate factory so maybe there's not as much of it as their reporting I don't know that to be True Kelly Ripa Bernie Sanders Elliott Camper John Krasinski and then David Byrne the National Paul Shaffer sugarhill line and it really crazy sensually it's an internal combustion engine gas goes in and if there's a spark plug and there's a piston rod food wanted to work together like one they just semi so burn one due dates and I think that's the that's the problem

it well they didn't want to stay later right so we've been talking a lot about schools California's governor has given middle school and high school students permission to sleep a little later governor Gavin newsom it goes hand in hand almost yeah gets the creative juices flow I guess in just always makes you wonder like what if what if that person is too regular do the other day we showed a video of hotel clerk grabbing the gun and scaring off this method and it was awesome we've another hero today this John Lapierre's not letting this go apparently he's a boxer which helped the alleged robber tremaine Anderson has a long history alive hero a Boston man disarmed a robber on a train in Chicago on Sunday before running in the cities Chicago Marathon and I'll just play claim deleo is kids need to sleep like kids need certain things and in certain cycles I know about how much product Bruce Springsteen has put out I'm just saying use the word product because I'm saying means oh the your jacket no garth brooks alternate major gains it's going to come out sing a song snl go see uncle Jimmy in Bruce and whatever and I'm like you are like and it's like it takes a couple of days gone what why are you going oh bruce mm sign legislation on Sunday that will change the start times for middle schools and high schools under the new law it'll be phased in over the next three years middle school can't start before eight and way my kids when they were in grade school had early birds in the late birds or something they staggered it like sometimes schools that's all I know is an Italian or headed New York New York I heard say that already who else do we know I wonder who else is on the marquee that prior arrests and after the incident luckier there's two great things about this lobbyists that he ran his twelfth Chicago marathon adding that he ran it as a bandit I would every morning I would feel nauseous waking up like it just nauseous at what six forty five six thirty well you know they're doing all those things someone who doesn't register for marathons wow she's just like uncapped unmasks superwoman superhero vigilante loving I tell you the story fifty four year old John Paul Lapierre was on the train when he stepped off and asked another commuter why people were rushing to the doors he schools can't start before eight thirty newsom said in a statement the science shows that student a teenage students who start their day later increase their academic performance attendance and overall health you've got the lineup here so guess for the week which is next week Kimmel's Brooklyn Eddie Murphy Bruce Springsteen Lisa Keys Benedict cumberbatch the same as Dr Bruce came in here to sleep doctor and told us about and in a way and I don't know how you do it but you know so I I get it they're on they're on a different cycle essentially there on a sort of adult or middle aged or older middle there's a lot of fifty one year old shop teachers and forty seven year old science teachers who like getting up early like getting out and probably like missing adolescence you just need it I don't know it's like you need fat kids need carbs and other stuff kids need that the teachers don't need and this this went through grade five or six or so but it it was like you show up at eight o'clock or you'd Chopin nine o'clock or whatever that was when foods trigger negative physical reactions it says it's usually linked to traumatic events and PTSD childhood this kid was removed from his home very early and went to see I'm sure you guys will remember this feeling I could never in high school or middle maybe middle school to go to sleep before eleven thirty my brain was just on I was night l. and this is why you're allergic to pepper whatever we there's there's a sign to it you know people have totally different rhythms were not all earth playing Germany or Florida here because this guy is so clearly Florida it wouldn't even be a fair fight so twenty year old Austin Davis has an addiction to macaroni and she's out of he's from Florida nearly seventeen years remember he's twenty for nearly seventeen years he's eaten nothing but macaroni and cheese for every single meal I think this is part of it you know twenty three me or whatever all that stuff where they go oh caffeine affects you and a much different way than in fact some people are alcohol are age cycle which is tends to get up early earnestly earlier yeah but able to kids have a lot of trouble with that and it it's smart to do it smart just a just a look at the science warning people you could you could come in earlier but he's right push it back and tough shit teachers well it's not even tasting at soul-crushing and by the way you can't learn because your rhythm is all all wack down and you know I was I was the same way like I was always yeah so actually vice you know they do these little features on people they did want him here's just the very beginning of it like walking into here dog or your Mac and cheese addiction or your travel with your pooch knock it the fuck off it's our job to tell you to knock it the fuck off let me explain what's cruel traffic necessarily commute and like the idea of punching out I mean think about it they've got a job just punch out at three zero six or whatever it is and more Jackson Lamar Jackson Yeah there there you go it's a good shot good hair shah department and fancy diets yep cheese but because it sounds so weird but like my body won't let me eat anything else right but hold on I according to the Therapist Ashley McCann Davis has a selective eating disorder known as a void in restrictive food intake disorder it's a mental condition where new then a call came in and he just like jump into it and the Oh my God oh my God makes it all worth so everybody with your fucking a he was cured in four minutes he literally he sat there like a little out of it for like a couple of beats and and she's specifically Velveeta shells and she's like my daughter I was GonNa say how craft he loves craft how could eat pasta it's not worth it he's a speaking of black folk we find any ain be pictures Frederick Douglass in quarterbacks now going around really start getting the science down and start figuring out that you're wired as a night bringing you in at seven forty five is that's what's for dinner that's what I'm offering you that's what we're offering tonight and here's the deal if you're hungry you'll eat and if you don't eat then then you're are so a Brooklyn based company created a fourteen hundred twenty-five customized Nike called Jesus Shoes and meantime rolling up it was very jarring right so it'd be good to figure that out and if you were in fact one of the super obnoxious then they got a price to baptize the water and blessed and make it official so the price is a play on Matthew Fourteen twenty-five which adding new eight Mac and cheese for the rest of your life that's cruel kicking you in the ass until you get your fucking shit together that's what gunny would do yeah it's very effective with three year old is aspect out on stage and he stood up and walked back onstage and sat down and I said I'll do the driving sit there and shut up and we should roll and start rolling that show and he was still fine that's the that's the whole thing like the most arguments ever got into with Lynette is like oh they don't want chicken and adorned with a steel crucifix Yeah Fortunately the head of the company has a friend living in Israel who agreed to sort of mule a gallon of water from the Jordan River and on the freeway zoom guys ever seen a name on a marquee and assume that guys what's up absolutely fine it's so funny in great that that worked because that is the biggest fear of somebody having a panic attack it's just start yelling in their face to get back nothing got here that's like Oh yeah I might want to try that I've tried celery I instantly I don't want to say I'm addicted to Max sold out in one minute this negroes are a pair looking at them right now they're a pair of Nike airmax ninety-seven injected with holy water derived from the Jordan River but that being said there is such a market an aftermarket for this stuff now there's the whole service was breached affecting up to four point nine million users zinger maker words with friends was breed nieker folks that collide and they're knots and they'll pay and the whatever that again if you're Ferrari and you're going to have a oh I think this is the new windfall for Nike or Asan Martin or Ferrari or whatever how much are the shoes fourteen twenty five fourteen listen I learned a very valuable lesson when Dr drew was having a panic attack in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight and I walked into his room and I yelled at him to get his fucking describes Jesus walking on water and they sold out in one minute about Matthew Modine and it's dad going I wanna put your name on the drive it and it's like if I I probably coulda pulled it off a couple of townies gotten away with it all they want pizza but who doesn't want peace too but it's chicken and that's it and they're not gonna eat and it's like they will or they won't they'll get again I was talking to the guys from God Bugatti and Dottie had a car and they're like we're just making eleven of the movie and at a drive in and says starring Tom Cruise like Tom Chris's dad must own that place you know I would just assume they could have made it to his car without being pelted with produce you gotta respect it though that's old school but also say okay so the town I think he's being self-aggrandizing he does beat them on a technicality because it is in the movie Yes yeah all right star name and wondered how does it up their parent on that play Will Smith's Dad owns all right away where oh shoes here's the thing mccraw yeah I didn't want to Smerch demands memory but I'm saying come on your dad unselfish leaves them question does make me wonder how many drive ins I've passed and seen I five and they sell right now just to be clear though I don't think Nike technically is affiliated there a re customize Nike okay they'll come in and do something or or they won't but that's that's what's on the menu then hear the doorbell rang the guy standing there and okay what Nice Guy and then I got into construction had to be on the job site at six fifty five every morning he was like and it it it it crush like I hated it don't get me wrong themorningshow knocked that out sir nine of these and I'm like how much nine million pop and I'm like nine million pop and they're all sold out and it's like because if you can get that thing could force them to eat something else easily all you gotta do is go to prison and ago no Mac and cheese you get shit on a shingle and he did all certain point hungry it's going to be worth twenty and we're kind of in that that got a little that was sneakers got that with cars there's prompt there's a version with probably coaches and stuff people will pay whatever because there's all that cash if it's exclusive to the image of exclusivity is up there now at old navy and old Navy Dot Com valid ten fifteen to ten twenty-five select styles only thirty years old old drainpipes were cast iron yeah I mean thick wall cast iron heavy put them together a lot of people that paid six hundred seventy five seven hundred grand they can sell it for one seven now it's not I mean it's so interesting the mindset like you'll see I'll walk into the kitchen at nine thirty nine Olga has a chick every piece of protein off of this bone and then throwing the bone away I feel like the the cheaper the food gets the more checked out we are his you had to write them soliloquy about why you deserve to try this car and then how you're not going to sell it for two years it's been two years at lighter and a lot everything and rat can go right through the ABS or the PVC this is this is this is nightmare fuel because they are roof there nine through plastic drainpipes as temperatures plummet so when traditionally drainpipes are cast iron and most modern drainpipes are plastic are warning that millions of super size disease ridden rats are scurrying into houses in the UK and there's a very good reason for that this might be a good ace on see the last one that sold at auction where there's one coming up too but I think they're in that range you can't be a charity Carmax pat otherwise it doesn't count Sir pest control although they normally live underground rats do go in search of food and warmth especially this time of year especially in the UK the houses are at risk of invasion because it's GonNa they say it's the coldest winter apparently in the UK nine through the pipes coming up the toilet according to a pest control manager he says not only are there increased numbers of rats the roads are much bigger so pest couldn't through old school drainpipes but now they're going through everything they have razor sharp teeth their razor sharp claws non crawl uh-huh you just flip them yeah well it's like the Ford Gt John Seen famously got into trouble for Sally here do phenomenal amounts of food waste and less frequent trash collection these rats are over twenty inches long like the size of a cat yeah and that things are being update now everything is pvc in abs which is just plastic and it's a lot cheaper and a lot faster and not bad making a million bucks for a couple years looking at a car garage and telling your body's about I think I x Ray breasts and she's using her fingers and she's picking off every piece of skin gristle and ten in me never his putting it in a ziplock bag and she's like this we'll say unintended consequences you have all this grub hub and all this will bring it to your house and everyone's kind of fat lethargic and they eat half the pizza and they chucked you know it fit him like had a male female in with like lead in horsehair literally it would last for two billion years waist goes out and start hunting buffalo if you're a rat this is this this is these are salad days and we know salad and the Salad Days Darren our smartphones it comes so easily so obviously the Indians using every part of the buffalo because they didn't have fucking Grub Grub the buffalo and now they're going to eat every part of the buffalo but my kids don't eat every part of the shake shack and comes fucking house because it's free in a loser okay well this is a horrible pivot but because you talked about grub hub and fat lethargic people the mcrib is back a long standing favorite sandwich rats are like very very they get dehydrated easy they're always looking for a water source hence why you find them calling up your toilet all right let's do one more McDonald's has rolled out a mic finder where customers can enter their zip code and find the closest location that will give them a mcrib or you can just tell that fat it's officially back in two thousand McDonald's across the country to states aren't serving it up Connecticut New York you can't find it but in order to help customers locate the nearest mcrib brought a buffalo to the teepee they wouldn't eat every part of the buffalo but they had to fucking gone a hundred mile three day ride to chase down the buffalo and then risk their life always sunny d. American cheese slices liquid cheese even the sows berry steak or even the mic rid it got to be careful phrases but I there's one positive thing I learned from my family okay or phone so how do I how do you instill that don't throw away that cross that Brenner that bonner that's done okay and then book the processed junk was just that like better up in here we don't need and my family was very much like yeah that's junk you'll why why would you want to eat that they didn't provide an alternative but at least when hot cocoa and everything synthesize felt weird it's always felt weird and in a world where real ribs exist they still exist and I mean you got a Lotta half half eaten chick-fil-a all kinds of you back out the Cudi factor and all you a bunch of chick-fil-a in the garbage and apparently arrest even like the mcnuggets felt weird to me when I was ten like I was like why not some real chicken and why not we don't let's get some orange juice gets them sharp things like pressed together and stuff and so my my whole life all synthesized stuff it wasn't like is it sweeters at saver like chocolate get there eventually what's session have you ever had one I assume it's the sweet tangy sauce that one I kind of pressed me conscious and all that stuff at all feels weird I'm surprised at how many people are sort of into it right all tales it feels lose lose to me Swiss miss with the powder and the hot water yes the notion of you want some hot chocolate good get some tap water fill up your mug noam out I want hot chocolate milk it's still weird though when we keep having this conversation where you hear like the Blasio's like meatless Mondays and he's like what's wrong milk was fine but weird powdered stuff with water and stuff it always felt a not nutritious but be not that satisfied not not very good at it was like super unhealthy meets not nearly satisfying or whatever yeah and with a little gross out factor what's in this thing and I think like in the eighties and stuff every day no one would care it's more it seems like a novelty item I'll be exclusively again yeah yeah right there's one eighteen dropped the bunch of pounds had a bunch of energy ironically cholesterol went down as well and for some people they stopped having seizures and things of that don't eat meat became a movement to my mom it was not a steak versus pizza or or Pasta Pasta stuff sent to you so we don't have a lack of knowledge to fall back on and then a trader Joe's world where the food trader Joe's is the same price as the cheap stuff at McDonald's or wherever versus evil and so now that we've proven the Eagle's actually better for you than the Pasta but it's still evil and we were snack wells and Diet right family and I think you know we didn't have the knowledge and now everyone is so coach up I mean butcher box like that is a household name everybody knows that you can get that is for fill it gets them DITA's medicine whatever fills not in the kitchen he's out on the corner kick in the ribs but he's watching and she's pulling yes they do work okay then we should have school voucher no but we turned it into something else and whenever you turn something into something else now you can't beat it with the kids being healthy having a little pizza dinner roll instead of having this all the time and it's like how I don't know why why isn't this it's not a good way to run a house or society or neighborhood key all like hey if hate Gavin newsom if kids nature why why are politicians still just talking this way and how come we won't get it and why not just spread it big Brad I real cheese exists in orange exists then tonight fingers or whatever and I have a root beer but the sunny d. felt weird to me and a lot of the I think it is it's it's the I think the problem was it the meat is murder became a movement the oh I know why people writing letters going deer at salt this is why I deserve to give you six hundred seventy eight thousand dollars y what are you doing what are you gaining I wish and I completely and utterly agree like just go to trader Joe's get some meat get some cheese and enjoy it's a little more settled it didn't it shouldn't be just a little more settled everyone you know who switched away from the carbs and over to the you take this and you make things into a movement instead of just what they are you know me just started talking about school vouchers do they work or don't they weren't uppity and The shelby doc is now pretty. I don't know if we're done with the Netflix deal but okay he's in our twenty four hour doc the good news is our stuff the twenty four hour war and same thing just get a group of people figured out and then you'll be forward if it's good for the kids are we still worried about kids let's just be consistent and not be insanely against based on Ford v Ferrari people are now have renewed interest in our work oh dot com fifteen minutes could be saving fifteen percent or more on your auto insurance take that money get yourself afford do better because they sleep later and they wanna come in with their rhythm at nine am instead of eight am good now let's look at Voucher Jackson that's only what not to eat and I was like yeah and my my grandpa make a big kettle of Goulash and I was like this this is foods I'd put together parts and beaks and friendly folk winner interviewed him spoke to him quite a bit all right let's bring it home you got it I'm Gina Grad and that's the news asshole gt sit on it for a couple years and hammer that baby you know the drill put eight or nine large in your pocket extra money put it in channel YouTube dot com slash Adam Corolla laughs with ball Brian coming up couple tickets left that's the second of November the all the all the discussions from Vinnie are not GonNa fix evil meat is murder and that's kind of where we're at and this is kind of a weird place to be at son of Henry Ford the thing about the fords and the shelby's the remaining ones that the children the grandkids and very affable friendly the Ford GT auction.

Valentina Grandma Brian say Mahala 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 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 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 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 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 exports right up are you hungry for the usual today 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 is your vehicle because I shall make a million dollars on this in two years I recommend Lee line out of the Leonard edsel compelling 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 the new trailer by the way before a couple of movies yeah oh you did yeah that's worth trailer with the kid is this the new track there's an Edsel Ford the second grand 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 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 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 not a no punching with a closed fist rule I that that is that is coming you may loot the ball 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

If you didn't listen go download now and check it out today. We are going to continue with the rest of movies and as we said this is not an inclusive list of movies that are coming out in twenty twenty is just all the shit we could find so far. You're right all right so many. Let's get US started. What are you okay? I have a movie called Malignant The release date is August fourteen. Twenty twenty it's a James One joint as in James One directed and Co who wrote this movie. It's based on his comic book by the same name which seriously he writes comex too. I had no idea he doesn't sleep he he doesn't. I'm convinced that he just takes a lot of riddle and unlike stays up all night long. He has to. Details are really tight on this in terms of synopsis. And I've not read or heard of this kind of like until now but it's scheduled for release like I said August twenty twenty and it's not part of the conjuring universe thankfully It sounds like it's slightly more sci fi or possibly superhero ish. We shall see but yeah something something different from James Watt. That'll be interesting all right any buzz about. If it's supposed to be good or I I had a hard time finding anything about comics about even really. Yeah so so keeping it super top-secret. Yeah probably because all he does is conjuring move. So this is non conjuring. We don't WanNa talk about it Are so I have antlers. which is expected to be in theaters on April Seventeenth It's produced by Guillermo. Adult Toro directed by Scott Cooper. The plot is a bit of a mystery. Not much about it. The only thing I know. Is that a small town Oregon teacher and her brother who is the local sheriff become entwined with a young student harboring a dangerous secret with frightening consequences. It stars carrier carrier also and Jesse Plemmons from breaking bad and Fargo season. Two in the Irishman. Isn't he married to a Christian nuns. Kirsten dunst wants and don't they have like a kid. Now I think so and Keri Russell rules yeah so it's got a good cast and it's based on a short story called the quiet boy oy written by Nick and Tosca and you can read his short story for free on the website. CUERNAVACA actually did go to the website in read it It was good so I'm kind of excited to see how they adapt the film From the story in we'll post a link on are going to say social media pages but will post it on our podcast podcasting sites for the right words. I just say episode description. We'll put it in the episode description of this episode so you can go there and download. Hello the story. If you want to read it for yourself I have a little more information on malignant the comic book. Oh it's actually called malignant man. Hey so Alan Gates Gates a cancer patient with a terminal. Diagnosis is resigned to his fate Until he discovers that his tumor is actually a mysterious parasite. And there's more but that's all I'm GonNa read. Oh you know what you're saying. Yeah but I think now that you read that I feel like I might have actually read like found that or read something to that effect and like just blocked it out of my brain. 'cause that idea is gross and terrifying. It seems like a weird idea. It's also co written by Michael Alan Nelson along with James One. Well in the movie. He's going to move into a old farm in the middle of nowhere with some cranky old neighbor. Yeah and there's GonNa be some ghosts in a non haunting him and then randomly the warns will show up so with a creepy doll. You're welcome James One. We just we just wrote your movie for you. That's a wrap all right. Should we move on yes. Let's please all right. My next movie is a quiet place. Part two the release date quieter place. This place is quieter I was wondering like that would have bill. SNL is going to do. Some spoof like that positively Jankowski host. Oh my gosh really. State March Twentieth in two thousand twenty once again directed and covert and by John Kaczynski part two picks right back up with the Abbott family immediately. Following following the events of the first film forced to venture from their home into tears unknown in the outside world family soon learns that the sound creatures are not the only threats lurking behind the sand path. Emily Blunt and Kilian Murphy drew this sequel. Well how do you say the Co Stars Name. Sharon German Han Soo thank you. He's also a CO star. Great actor I'm just not very good at pronouncing things I'll definitely definitely be seeing this movie at some point to be safe. I'll probably wait for video and watch us at home since I just watched the first movie this past week for the first time ever and basically had a panic attack starting with the opening scene Eh thought it was so intense. Killian Murphy is an excellent and incentive to see anything though so I'll be excited to see what he brings to part two chicken. Wow this is. This is clearly emily blunt show. I'm looking forward to her. Bad assery. I just wanted to make a quick side note. I like to take a second to just recognize John. Krasinski is kind of amazing. I get it if if the office isn't your thing but he such a better actor than just Jim help hurt and he was great is Jim Helper. And actually both he and Martin Freeman. Who Played Tim? Canterbury Gyms British predecessor on the British office both unveiled their respective offers. Personas and are also both fantastic tastic actors with incredible range That was a little divergent. Anyway Krizan skis performance in a quiet place fucking destroyed me as a director. The film's `execution I thought was impeccable. Unfortunately this is one movie that I actually did see the trailer for so much of the plot points. Were kind of predictable. But I was still a nervous wreck and sobbing mass or both the entire frigging movie and then there's thing that happens so yeah I'll be back for part to you just not sure how emotionally sound. I'll be wants. The credit starts rolling so bring it Krzyzewski. Nice well. I'm glad you liked it quiet place. I'm glad you've watched a quiet place. The cried I know I at the ending and I did not I. It was more than I thought. It was GONNA be a movie to in many ways and I don't want to say too much about about that for anybody who has still not seen it. But Yeah I was pleasantly surprised terrified and depressed at the same time ellen a good way in the new new movie. I heard that emily blunt birth to twins. You're making that up totally making that. But Yeah I'm I'm excited to see what they're gonNA do and do. Do I eight. Do we need to say Kelly ver-very again because I know that's what I said. I was like this and incentive right there so yeah yeah all right so next semi list something that I'm really excited for antebellum expected to be released on April twenty fourth. The CAST is great. It's it's it has Janelle Monet. Jena Malone Gabay said obey its about a successful author I don't know why I had. I say successful so slow. I'm going to say that over again. I I was. I felt like I had a hard time like trying to get it out. It's it's about it's about a successful author. Veronica Hanley played by now Monet. She finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality reality and must uncover the mind bending mystery before it's too late from one of the producers of get out and us the title antebellum can describe the time just before or any war but it's usually used in reference to the American civil war some guessing. The movie will have kind of similar vein to get out an US and we'll will be a horror. Movie that has social commentary. So I'm excited justice. He Janelle monae because she's a great singer and actress and dude she is the Argh android I mean like. I know. That's her like her. Her what do you call it like her theme for her albums looms but she's I don't think she's him and she's way too talented she's like She's like Lupita Neo. Yes thank you yes She's like her. She either Ceylon or would I would just go with You know the ARC android. which is her character from her albums? But like I just think they're. They're not human their way to talented. It's amazing yeah I loved them both but yes I agree. I can't wait to see her and everyone else in that movie. Because that's a bad ass cast All right mindy all right. We're going to wrong. Turn the foundation. Yea I I've only seen like one wrong. Turn movie I think did our. I only saw the first one but this is currently in post production release date is ta right now But supposedly this is is coming out this year two thousand twenty screenplay by Allenby Macelroy the writer of the original wrong turn and the franchise creator stars. Matthew Modine Ian Randomly. But I still harbour a little crush Matthew Modine. I'm sorry I kind of and also he was in stranger things so he's kind of made a comeback. I feel. Yeah but I've just always always Kinda yeah. I can't help it. I sure he was like an eighty s movie icon like man crush boy crush girl crush. Wait what kind of like on the DL. 'cause he wasn't like more than neurons Mueller but like yeah. My mom liked him. He wasn't like I was like. Oh he's kind of cute. There is like you know Rob Lowe Right. Who is more like the sexy like heartthrob and then there is Matthew Modine who was more likely gentle soul like Nerdier here? Yeah Spencer just laughing at US hates US both right with Matthew Modine the gentle lover and Rob Lowe. I'm getting into vortex. Do you want to have that guy take back to wrong. We took around her in their. Oh let's get back to the foundation at nicely done Spencer Spencer so this new this new wrong turn movie is going to be about friends hiking the Appalachian Trail and confronted by the foundation. A community of people who have lived in the mountains for hundreds of years because of course new. It's been reported that this film will be a reboot and will not follow the same cannibals that have been featured before. I'm sorry this just makes me laugh because this just sounds funny. This will be the movie in the wrong turn. Franchise wow which explores various family members of a mountain dwelling Cannibal tribe in the West Virginia Nia wilderness and Appalachian Mountain regions. The deformed killer specialize in various types of hunting traps and weaponry twins near their prey. There have been many villains featured in the various wrong turn movies one particular Cannibal ready for it known as three finger has appeared in all six films. Aw these two in the pink in the sink. That's why they call them through finger. Look to that. Is Matthew Modine going to be three finger. I don't think so. I actually now that you read the description of the the movies I Kinda WanNa Watch all these maybe we should do a a A wrong turn. I'm nine job I'm into it I'm down. It's snowy an awful in Chicago right now. It's actually not a bad time for a movie marathon. I mean people actually. There's a lot of people who enjoy this franchise ostby reason so i. We shouldn't be too quick to judge. I am too quick to judge. I'm kidding I'm kidding. Whatever floats your boat? Speaking of franchises the movie. I'm going to be talking about next which I will definitely be seeing in the theater. Take my money. Please the conjuring three Patrick Wilson. The devil made me do it all But it's call us the full title countering three the devil made me do it in theaters right after our birthday Spencer September eleventh and Vera Pharmacia and Patrick Wilson are back to reprise their roles as an Lorraine Warren James One will not be directing this us as he did the first Yukon during movies but he does serve as a producer and story co-developer. I mean in his shirt forty two years on earth. He's only only been able to direct around seventeen movies. Writer Co right around eighteen movies and produce approximately thirty films so clearly. He's struggling financially. Needs to take any film role he can and so yeah he sounds like lacquer. We don't know man as producer though he's kind of like just sitting back in like like no. I mean there's work to being a producer. But he's kind of just honey's rolling in baby I don't know man producers they they're pretty much responsible for everything everything so that's not an easy job. I know it's not but very time consuming. He's not enough to be on set every day necessarily but he pro he probably has. Because he's James One he doesn't sleep We've already established that he doesn't sleep. I forgot but yeah even though. He's not directing being his influence will most likely be felt throughout the film Michael Chavez who previously directed the curse of La Zorana which Neither of US enjoyed He's the one who's directing conjuring three so since Lahser was one of my least favorite horror movies of last year. Let's hope the this one is much better. Because the first few conjuring movie is let's face it. I I really love those movies. I don't know how you feel about them. But I'm a huge fan. So Patrick Wilson. I mean that's going to be my so. This story will follow the case where a murder suspect claims. He's he was possessed during during during his alleged crimes. So this actually sounds very interesting in kind of a departure from the first two movies where you know demon possession tears apart a family A bit of IMDB Trivia. The movie is allegedly about the story story of Arne Shan Johnson who killed his landlord in nineteen eighty one. The story was described in the nineteen. eighty-three book the Devil in Connecticut Kit and also is an episode from the TV series haunting from twenty Two thousand six called where demons dwell. Which I'm sure I've probably seen that episode because I need to watch that show religiously? I Still Watch reruns. I'm not even yeah I and then Yell L. at the stupid things and the reenactment actors so but in an interview Michael Chavez said that he cannot confirm the plot of the film and when asked about the rumors the possible adaptation of the Arnie Cheyenne Johnson case. He just said that the conjuring three would be quote bigger than that. So we'll see but it sounds like it's kind of going in a different direction which I'm glad because like how many demon possession movies can they keep doing so and yeah and I mean I do. I find the first who in to be enjoyable. Second one I'd say maybe more so than the first one but at the same time like I've read the book on like the actual Ad Infield case and Enfield. Sorry I always say didn't field. I read the book. No Oh I did I did But like it's everybody masses with history. It's fiction it's just weird but I like to just look at those. Two actors is being like my Fantasy Ed and Lorraine Warren and that's like how I'm going to picture them fictionally and just go win and enjoy it much more attractive than the real life couple now that that makes any difference but they Took some liberties with the casting. Yeah that's what I think. That's what I was going for is. There's a few liberties that have been taken in general with the conjuring movies but I choose to be like I understand that going for the fun so sounds fun. The guy's name it might be Arn Cheyenne Not Arnie. Cheyenne just based on the spelling. You've got here. You can spell. Arnie A. R. N. E.. I've never I heard pronouncing what are have you ever. Even anyone name Arne now thinking about it. That's what I'm saying. It's probably arn. Have you ever met anyone when name aren either. Yeah shut. I met eight. People named Art Shawcross yesterday as a matter of act. All right man it was at the convention. Ah what was in everybody's all eight Arns of the world showed up right all right this one. All right we're talking about it. Well Yeah that's on your list. I know I know I am not going to skip over it. I know I'M NOT I. I don't know how excited I am about this. But whatever so this next movie we're GONNA talking about his army of the dead Directed by Zack Snyder. Denim Geek Says No release date set except for coming twenty twenty currently it's in post production from IMDB synopsis. That they gave says is following. Zambia outbreak in Las Vegas a group of mercenaries take the ultimate gamble venturing into quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted again directed by Snyder who also directed the dawn of the dead remake from two thousand and four Not Not much is known other than this description from IMDB but the cast includes folks like David Bautista. Chris Dalla Ella delete delete comedian. He's also in the new season of you. which have you watched but a friend undermine just texted me earlier this week it was like? Have you watched this. You should watch this. Sharon likes it and he said yes she would. It's really good good. I mean quick. Quigley's idea here. Yeah if you have not watched you check it out. Because it's if you were a fan of Dexter I would say check it out It's it's very similar it's about a A serial killer who's also a hopeless romantic and a stocker walker and yet. Oh He's definitely psychopath. But I essentially to is even more dexter ask and after Dexter ended an got it ended so horribly it Kinda left a big hole in my heart. 'cause I love that show so much and then when I discovered this show like. Oh so there's a lot. There's a lot of controversy about you. Not Use specifically as person but while the show both. There's a little controversy on. That's another story for another day. We'll talk about that later but I just wanted to say say well speaking of networks though. This looks like it's going to be a straight is going to be a netflix movie. Like straight to net Flix. Oh you could watch this and then and you I guess in the same day probably love or hate Snyder. You you gotTa admit that that Donna. The dead from two thousand four was pretty solid. I thought This will be his first film after taking a break to focus on his family. After his daughter's death which I didn't know and to collaborate great with suicide prevention and awareness causes so good on you Snyder He told the Hollywood reporter. There are no handcuffs on me at all with this and I thought this was a good pallet cleanser to really dig in with both hands and make something fun and Ambika and crazy and bonkers and the best way possible. I love to honor Cannon Bannon and the works of art but this is the opportunity to find a purely joyful way to express myself through. It will be the most kick ass self-aware but not in a wing linked to the camera. Way Balls to the wall Zombie Freak. Show that anyone has ever seen no one's ever let me completely lose like this completely loose. Yeah lose that doesn't really changes the meaning completely changes the meaning of Whitest said. Where's your heart and I'm having a hard time with words today too but like I'm not the biggest fan but I mean what is the release date there? They're really it's just as like coming twenty twenty straight now but this does I mean that actually sounds really awesome. I know I'll end up watching it some day like I'll be home. It randomly. Come Oh you should watch this thing on at flicks and then I'll be like Holy Shit. Why when I watched this before? Why have like a new fascination with all these Unique Zombie movies coming out. Like one uncut dead which you still need to watch yes. It's my cue on shudder and also Little monsters so I'm really enjoying in these Like new twist on Zombie movies so we needed it. Yeah Oh my gosh yes so this sounds like it's kind of in that same direction in so I'm excited for this. I'll watch anti-catholic so I don't have to fucking payer lead the house and I also like the phrase balls to the wall Zombie freakshow yes. This description sounds pretty amazing uh-huh Alright Sharon what you got for his next. So next I have last night in Soho September twenty fifth. It's supposed to be in theaters direct by you're right The director Shauna the dead and the world's end and hot fuzz. So based if you're a fan of those movies then I'm sure this movie's GonNa give me great. Cause I love all those movies It's about a young girl passionate and fashion design. She's mysteriously able to enter the nineteen sixties where she encounters her idol heidel a dazzling wannabe singer but nineteen sixties. London is not what it seems and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences it stars. Ars Anya Taylor. Joy Who's best known for the witch She's I think the main girl yeah The movie was inspired. Heard by the movie. Don't look now with Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie. That's the I actually watched that a couple years ago. Oh as one of my halloween movies from nineteen seventy-three. It's about a married couple grieving. The recent death of their young daughter there in Venice when they encounter two elderly sisters one of whom is psychic and brings a warning from beyond the other movie that inspired this movie is repulsion from Roman Polanski which is from nineteen sixty five. Have a sex repulsed woman who disapproves of her sister's boyfriend sinks into depression and has horrific visions of rape and violence It's a good movie it is it is actually a really good movie So yeah I'm excited to see this one because honestly anything made by that director I think is fucking gold. He also did Scott Pilgrim vs the world and baby driver. Did you ever see baby. Dry did not answer. I need to see that. I've I've I've heard it's really good. I Love Edgar right because the show space that was done in the early two thousands and they he has been all over instagram celebrating the twentieth anniversary or some twenty fifth or something and it's that was like his first Simon Pegg Nick Frost like the all those okay that show and it's total pop culture winks and it's great and and but yeah. I did know Edgar. Wright was working on a new movie so yeah I'll have to check out that show a little diversion about spaced. They're good show but Edgar Reitz amazing in general and and so yes. Please go see his new movie when it comes out this year I will be seeing it as we'll share in and Spencer. I think don't tell me what to do as I say. I think I can unfairly say that. You'll you'll see it but absolutely in this case I am going to tell you what to do. Is it my attorney again. That was your Ruby. I just kind of hijacked you. Oh Shit but you want you can throw it to me pierce. GimMe a mini catch. Hey got it. There's someone inside your house. Yeah that's the name of the movie I'm going to day. Oh I thought there was someone actually inside my house. The release date on this is it's listed as td right now supposed to be this year as of this recording. It's still in post production as well and it's also another net flicks jam so it looks like it's it's Netflix. CO producing with another company and Net flicks is describing this movie. As has the graduating class at Osborn. High is being targeted by a masked assailant intent on exposing the darkest secrets of each victim with an only a group of misfit. Outsiders can stop killings before their own secrets are revealed the world. This is based on a book by author Stephanie Perkins Oregon's who also co wrote the film and the book came out in two thousand seventeen This movie is going to be directed by or is being directed by Patrick. Brace Ace who directed both of the creep thumbs with mark do he actually appeared on screen in the first Crete. Movie as mark. Duplexes glasses videography slash victim and surprise surprise. James Wan is one of the producers on this gin somebody please just start a kickstarter to donate money to him. So he doesn't have to work so much just to scrape by mostly just producing these as so. He's not so much much working to scrape by as much as sitting back and raking it in which is totally not true because pre work but if anyone wants to start at kickstarter for our podcast asked and then tell James Wan so he can donate some of that sweet conjuring cash object. Yes please anyway. So about this movie or someone inside Your House I think this could go either way. I've actually read the book and it was. Okay we'll know it was good page Turner for sure kind of reminded me of the I scream movie but with less humor and self awareness and had a slightly more young adult novel feel the kills though the setup alone will kill you no pun intended. The kills were super creepy suspenseful and fairly original for today's horror I thought sharing and I are both fans of the TV version of scream that was on net flicks and I was on Oh Oh it was on MTV. Oh I didn't know that I only watched it. I I think it was an MTV show and then it went over to Netflix. which is how how I watched it so well? I feel like based on the book. This movie might fall into a similar category like that. Maybe with a few rougher edges isn't slightly more mature or not only time. I'll tell but if they pull off the kills those will be scares worth watching for sure. Okay Yeah I'll I'll check it out interesting. Screen was an MTV show okay. That's I thought yet. And they only did two seasons right well. There was the Halloween special. And there's a new one but we didn't want to watch it because there is a thirty. I heard seasons actually pretty bad. Yeah I really liked the first surprisingly really I the first two I did too which is and this book like that kind of it kind of reminded me like if they're making it for Netflix. Like I was like I. Could you see this being like that. Show it's like like teenage stuff but then like actual some good scary stuff too so I'm kind of excited to see what they do with it. Cool yeah all right well. I know we're both excited for the next movie. which is Halloween? Kills expected to be released this October October. Sixteen I'm to be exact once again. It stars. Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role their role as Laurie Strip. Oh my God let me let me try again once against it. Stars Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role rolls off. The tongue. Mini mini's Minnie's right. We are having trouble talking today. Her role as Laurie Strode for the sixth time. An also judy greer back reprising using her role as Laurie strode. Daughter and Andy. I'm sure as her granddaughter. Sarah I'm not not sure if I pronounced that right but she plays the granddaughter and then he might go hall is actually going to be playing. Tommy Doyle I'm sorry yes you heard me right. Anthony Michael Hall all the Nerd from. I love that he might go hall. I still do Y- but the nerd from everything in every movie in the eighties ever made and so he's going to be playing. Tommy Doyle quick fact or little Trivia Paul Rudd was actually offered to reprise his role as Tommy Doyle but he added declined due to scheduling conflicts. Because he's going to be in the new ghostbusters this year. Which I guess? That movie is not on our list because it's probably more comedy than a horror movie. But he played Tommy in Halloween. The curse of Michael Myers from Nineteen Ninety five which is supposed to be the worst of all the the Halloween movies. I saw that one and I don't I don't want to get on a ghostbusters tangent. Well Yeah we're not gonNA talk about ghostbusters right now but I think it would have been really cool. Paul Rudd was in this area. But whatever we've got Anthony Michael Hall and also Yeah Kyle. Richards is going to be playing Lindsey Wallace. And she played the original Lindsey in the very first Halloween movie Nick Castle is GonNa Return for both sequels sweet Halloween kills and then Halloween. And that's the third one. I think so spencer. Look it up. Correct me if I'm wrong So yeah he is going to be playing the shape. Aka Michael Myers. Whereas with James Jude Courtney again playing Myers for the majority of the film? Newcastle also played. Michael Myers for most of the original hollering as well although there is A couple of other People that kind of subbed in for him when he wasn't able to film Not Not too much is known about the sequel which is fine with me. Yeah right honestly the last I know about this the better I kind of wanted to go in old. And you know. Make my own judgments men's about it But we do know that it serves of one of two sequels yet with Halloween ends coming in two thousand twenty one. So you don't have to look that up because actually wrote got it but I did look it up. Is Her name Kylie Richards. I say Kyle expelled kyle but I have a feeling it's probably pronounced Kylie. I know what I'm all about the name. I don't want people to get mad when their names or mispronounced. I have to say that I do have a colleague at work. WHOSE NAME IS KYLE? And she's a woman. Well it could very well kyle. Do you have a coworker name. Arne who spells it air. I know but I have one named Arn Nam Kidding. That would be weird all right so my next year. It's back on Yemeni. Alright so the collected yes acidly coming out in two thousand twenty date. TB De Right now. It's a follow up to two thousand twelve th the collection which. I haven't actually seen this whole wait. Now is the follow up of well. There's the collector will but the last one was the collection I think thank. You should probably mention both of them. Yeah because it's a it's a trilogy so it's going in order. Don't roll your as me all right so all. Start over and I'll find a good place to no. You don't need to start over also let me just throw in here. I have been on Minnie's case to why why we're going to get to that collector for years so I cannot wait to hear what she has shitting second but Yeah okay fine. There's the collector right and then the collect. What's the Josh in now? This is the collected which is going to be the final of the trilogy. Gee I guess or is it or of course other words start with collect the election. ID The box set will be eventually but most collected. It's directed and written by the guys who did the collector and the sequel equal. The collection. Josh Stewart from the first two movies is back as Arkin Right. Yeah and Fitz. Patrick will be reprising her role from the previous installment the collection If you haven't seen the first two movies it's basically about twisted serial killer who kills his victims with a series of brutal and deadly but also to be fair very very creative booby-traps the killer always takes one victim alive to add to his his collection. And Yeah Sharon's been on me to watch this for years expensive even really liked it but she knows damn well that I don't like torture movies or home invasion movies and that's what this movie is and I was like. Yeah Fuck this movie but I have to to say the booby traps and kills. were very creative. How if not somewhat unrealistic? Because I was like yeah. There's no wait that this would he'd be make all this happen but I will say that. It was kind of like home alone but like on mega steroids because Lake Math. Because like it was like I I agree that like the act like the kills in the setups and everything were incredibly incredibly intricate and insane. But I just I don't really. I'm this these movies are not really like my jam. So I'm not a huge but it has your girl metal and Zima in it and who was sexy again as usual and I mean we all know everyone. It's not a spoiler alert. When I say we all know? Everyone's going to die at the end of the movie and so now now not everyone. Well right that's true not everyone because they have to have someone for the collection But I did. I watched it there you go. I probably won't see this movie. Although who knows I probably will end up doing it. Well thank you for watching it and you should watch the second one though because it's not home invasion movie. I was gay. Okay do Oeste torture movie your second favorite jam torture movies that I like it too like depend it kind of it depends on the circumstance. So we'll in the second one I would have had to rent the second one the first one was streaming on prime and I was not in the mood to rent. Oh I thought they. We're both on shudder. She's cheap shut up and I am because it's like a movie that I'm not dying to see box to check shutters spends I thought they were both on shutter. I know that at least the first ones on shutter but you can watch it for free on shudder. If it's on there but the second one I watched it on Amazon or shutter the first one yeah and and I thought you said you watched it prime you literally just though. Yeah it was it was on that put it in my queue. That's why I'm trying to remember we if too many streaming services the fact that we're having this conversation is ridiculous that is true. I see the collector on shudder. Okay so I think the other one. The second one isn't but the second get one but I was curious because no I guess we don't want to give lawyers famous cares but I was kind of curious to see like what I mean. I have an idea of what's going to happen. Well the second on he goes and follows the guy and they think they're like in a big warehouse so he's going through his huge warehouse so so from what I remember I think the traps and everything are even bigger and more elaborate and But he also I think saves a few people yet. Yeah the movie goes way off kind of in another like it takes to a whole other level. I mean I honestly it's been a few years. I was going to try and Rewatch it this this week but didn't have time and it Yeah I'M GONNA catch up on those movies soon though because what. What is the real estate of this one TVD Right now go yes right still the TVD TV movies right now. I kind of do but like it's just I thought I and you know this too. I have a problem when like there's no character that can really kind of empathize with and I was. There was just a lot happening in the collector. Like like aside from the main plot of the psycho guy so I was kind of like you. I'M NOT GONNA go into it but anyway the sequels coming out. Hopefully this year of of the third movie from the trilogy. If you're into it I'm going to get ready. It's on stars and direct. TV and on Amazon. There's also like a stars like like channel that you can sign up where you could probably like a week trial for the direct TV. But then yeah I'll I might watch it. We'll see we'll watch it before the third one comes out so then we can wash the third one together. Oh yeah okay well okay if we can watch it with alcohol we'll figure that out. Yes Sharon what's next on your list. Okay so yeah I think honestly all the rest of these movies on our list are all none of them really have released dates as of yet So the next movie I have. Is We some in the darkness Released eight T BE A. This is a horror comedy that was announced to be released released on December thirteenth of last year. Twenty nineteen but that appears to have been an error. There's not even a trailer yet. It's directed by Mark Myers who directed my friend. Dahmer it stars Alexander Alexandria D Dario. WHO's made a bunch of other movies that I have not seen unlike the Baywatch movie also not seen that? I'm the list but you know just have not been around here yet. Weird So she's also in the Percy Jackson movies which I have not seen Those are like more kids movies right. Spencer Yeah I think so. I haven't seen him either. Yeah Johnny Knoxville is in it as well is about three naive. Best friends that embark on a road trip to a heavy metal music festival they bond with three seemingly fun loving dudes and soon. The group has off to Alexes country home. Oh surprise a a very secluded place for an after party. 'cause that's smart going to a very secluded place with a bunch of people that you just met Yep So what should be a fun night of youthful debauchery may instead take dark deadly turn with killers on the loose. Can anyone be trusted. So yeah that's all. I really know about this movie. So we'll see me back to you. Okay so no I want a movie called synchronic I believe that's how you say it. it was released in the US at fantastic fest on September. Twenty second can't two thousand nineteen But no listed dates for a wide release for twenty twenty as of yet it starts Jamie Dornan who is in those fifty shades of grey movies but fuck that watch him in the TV series the fall he's awesome? Yes and Anthony Mackie Gi Falcon from the avengers which I don't watch those movies but thanks for the tip Sharon But he's also been like a million other movies and shows before like before and also was in one of my new favorite Christmas gems the night before with Rogan Joseph Gordon Levitt and a ton of awesome people so synopsis from IMDB says to New Orleans paramedics lives are ripped apart. After encountering a series of horrific deaths linked to a the designer drug with bizarre other worldly effects so budgets will be tripping in New Orleans. I guess I mean on if I'm I'M NOT GONNA lie. They kind of had me Jamie Dornan and Anthony Mackie. I'll probably wait for streaming. I will probably. I'm sure I'll watch this at some point absolutely. Hope it's look. Hopefully it will wipe come out wide release in two thousand twenty but no word as of yet all right so keep an eye out for it Jaren. My my next movie is I'm thinking of ending. Things also released date unknown at this point is currently in post production. It looks like it will be a direct to netflix release. Though it is based on the book by I'm going to say Ian I'm going to agree with you okay. 'cause it's not spelled like Ian normally spelled belt is a an okay Ian read and directed and written for the screen by Charlie Kaufman from The writer from from the writer from He. I'm just going to shut up and say you'll know who charlie companies and if you don't just Google home because you should know. He wrote being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the spotless. Mind among many other. Awesome things Jesse Clemens who talked about earlier. He's also in this in so as Tony Clark. Who is amazing? According to Wikipedia the book has been described as a psychological thriller in horror fiction and is about in and is I accidentally dislike licked. The microphone twice. Don't do that good. Gross that's the one I sneeze on. Oh good the one that up your. But she's making this face smells like farts anyways so the book has been been described as a psychological thriller horror fiction and is about an unnamed young woman who lets her boyfriend take her to to see his parents on a remote farm damage. Come on people we need to stop. Come up with some creative ideas. I WanNa see a horror movie that takes place like a downtown Chicago. Downtown Chicago on the thirty fifth floor of a high-rise building being during yeah rush hour traffic whatever. Russia were traffic on the thirtieth floor. Rush hour is brutal in Chicago. Oh okay it's so bad. It goes thirty five stories. Those who did the buildings those of you from Chicago know this but any of you. WHO's never who've never into Chicago? That's what happens. You said it. I I did 'cause I'm an idiot. Anyway it's on remote farm. It's animal farm in the disturbing aftermath that follows the novel selected by. NPR is one of the best books of Twenty Twenty Sixteen and it was a finalist in the two thousand Sixteen Shirley Jackson Award contest. They do exist. I know but like the the way they weren't in it. And I just like copied and pasted this big trivia. They called it a finalist on the twenty sixteen Shirley. Early Jackson Award atrophied finalist four. Th the right Abba. It should've said there should have been a word there. What the fuck and he are folk So anyways the movie which is also categorized as a psychological horror. Sounds very much like the book. The story center is a woman and a relationship that's already ended in her mind mind but she's nonetheless following her boyfriend through the debt of wintry night to meet his parents at their farmhouse Talk to say so. Yemeni looks like you might have another book to put on your must read list. I have one. I ordered on the way here. I'll talk about in a little bit. Shirley Jackson I do and this. One was a finalist in the twenty sixth Shirley Jackson award according to NPR's grammar sorry NPR. We love you. Well this has just been a mad discussion much like my next movies titled the Color of madness. I am not good at Segues goof. Ouch Anyway yes the next movie I'm talking about is called the color of madness. It's date for release is TVD the official production site says the current status of the film is that it's in post production as every a lot of the movies we've been reading about our. Apparently it is described as a love crafty and horror set on Arrow Moat Norwegian island. That has say that ten times spot I no shit. The official synopsis is after the death of his mother is sick and his pregnant wife. Emma return to through remote Norwegian in high island of his birth from Onery town reminder to deal with an unexpected inheritance. They find themselves caught in a nightmare. As an an ancient cosmic horror awakens to claim a birthright of its own interesting Starring Barbara Crampton. Who's WHO's appeared in a number of lovecraft adaptations like reanimator? Nine hundred thousand five from beyond from eighty six and apparently the soon to be remade castle castle freak. The original was nineteen ninety-five This is not an adaptation of a specific lovecraft story but based on elements from a number of his works Norwegian horror films tend to be beautifully shot if nothing else and few images available for this film show this to be no exception. So I'll keep keep my eyes out for this if only for the lovely yet horrifying. I'm sure visuals. According to CO director Andy Collier here. He says we are using one hundred percent practical effects with some disgusting looking robotic tentacles for few body or shocks folks together with a very dark creepy story so That sounds interesting. I hope that it they finish up with post and release it in two thousand twenty not cool Sharon all right. Here is my final movie. Okay terrify are to release day currently still filming so it's not even impost. It's expected to be released this year. But we'll see So basically really the only thing really known about it is after being resurrected by a sinister entity art the clown returns two miles county where he must hunt down and destroy a teenage girl girl and her younger brother on Halloween night. Damian Leone is back as the writer and director he did the first movie and also the short film which I've seen the movie Louis but I've not seen the short felow rose best known as Angela from sleep away Camp Stars in this and honestly that's really all I've got for this movie. It's kind of a hush hush and the terror fire that's the clown guy the so there's another. There was another movie. That was I found. I think on shudder that was like not a sequel. Or but it Kinda was where it was like this family on Halloween and they found this. This vit- this tape like as they were trick or treating somebody gave out a tape and like an actual VHS tape and they put it in and it's it's like a bunch of shorts with the tariff fire clown guy. But I don't I think we talked about in one of the episodes recently Because I think yeah there was that one and then the official terrifying out. Because I didn't know they were related and then I started watching the first hand and I I was like wait. Isn't that terrifying clone. It was bizarre. Yeah I liked the first one enough I'm not like a huge fan of it. There is a lot of things I liked about it. And there's a lot of things I disliked about it. I think I mentioned this in a previous episode but when Spencer and I went to days of the dead fast last a couple of years ago there was like this four year old girl. Oh Yeah you do. Parens let her watch tariffs and she was like obsessed with the clown and she was like going up to people who are dressed up as Art The clown in like Qasr play in like taking photos with him and I was like who has their four-year-old Girls Watch this okay. I thought you meant that they for some reason when you told us very before I thought you meant like did they like maybe sure picture and like just dressed her up i. I didn't realize I missed the part about actually let her watch it. She wasn't dressed up but no she. Yeah they watch it with their. They're like Oh my God she loves this movie like it's deaths it's like fucking Thomas the tank engine or I don't even know what kids watch nowadays because I don't have any Yeah but she was like obsessed in every time she saw someone walk Like dress is the cloud from tariff fire. She would like Gop Tova me like can I have a picture with you. She's going to grow up to be awesome. She is she's going to grow up. She's GonNa take up our podcast. Yeah so yeah. There was. Terrified are short from twenty eleven which you mentioned and then there was all hallows. Eve was out the one with VHS thing yes so that was from twenty thirteen and then in two thousand sixteen was the actual terrify or movie. The first official one and then this one's coming out in two thousand twenty. How terrified mystery solved? Thank you spent. If you're welcome all right so mindy surprise me with were. She's going to surprise me with one last movie that she found on her own. Actually I think she's got to humor. That was on the list and then I found out about something else. Oh Hey yeah well wrap it up well this one This will be our final movie. Talk about I'm going to try and say this right Veronica. All Right Spencer it was like it's like erotica but with the VIRATA and also K. Yeah Whatever Shush just kidding. We Love You Spencer. I'm I am DB lists the release date of this June thirteenth two thousand nineteen at Sin Apocalypse. I'm looking for Info on. US Net. Flix Alex release no idea yet what that is a but Goo goo directed by Glenn Dance Ig he directs and also wrote the screenplay the IMDB Synopsis Literally Crack Me Up. It says Glen. Dan's ex drip. Toil debut is a horror anthology. Elegy that compiles stories from Dan's eggs line of comic books of the same name stories which focus on horror content. That's often sexual and violent in nature are usually featuring scantily clad female protagonists. That sounds about right. Personally I've never been a huge fan but I'm a sucker France allergies and I'm guessing I'll probably wait for streaming on this one It's been referred to as the next great so bad. It's good horror movie after festival screenings. Patchett Chick Bromley from bloodied play. Disgusting Dot Com called it the horror equivalent of the room in his view. Wow so I don't know how I feel about that. That and I don't know if that's what like do we think that Glenn. Dan's egg considers this to be the next so bad. It's good movie or like what was that. Is he a serious guy. I kinda thought he seemed kind of intense but like maybe that was just a stage presence so like I'm not sure if he like would take that as a compliment but Yeah I don't know it's kind of weird. I thought but curious I do like dances. Zeke's music and I like the misfits but Not a big fan of London Zeke himself and also I don't really keep up to to date on him but I've heard some not not too good things about some of his political views and social abuse. And so yeah. I'm not really looking forward to this but you know what it might be fun to watch it as like mystery Science Theater Watch and just make fun the entire time. Yeah I have a feeling that's probably going to be what it's like. The budget is a relatively low. One million dollars I mean movies. Yeah those movies are made for significantly more than that. So that's pretty low I saw a few photos. It seemed like it looked a little funny and I just saw that. They released Just a few days ago. They released a trailer for it or a new trailer trail right. Yep Yep well I might for this probably a Molina. See this if we mystery science theater but yeah yeah I just like. IMDB was like it's based on his connex which usually feature scantily clad women and violence. Against like you know it sounds about right. It probably violence against women too so I have one last movie I WANNA discuss somewhat briefly That I just found out this week about out. It's being released on at Sundance on January. Twenty fifth of this year twenty and it is called Shirley Synopsis From says a famous horror writer finds inspiration for her next book after her. She and her husband taken the young couple and they keep it simple. Okay It starring Elisabeth Moss as surely. I don't know how to say his name. But I love this actor Michael Sterling Bergh He was in Barack Empire and the shape of water and a bunch of other stuff but he plays Stanley Hyman It is directed by Josephine. docker occur who is an up and coming female director based on a book that I just wondered by Susan Scarf Merrill and a screenplay written by my friend friend Sarah Gibbons Sarajevans Chicago playwright artist who moved to l. a. a few years ago I haven't seen her talk to her in a very a long time but she if that show. I Love Dick on Amazon. She is one of the writers behind that she has made a career for herself in in Hollywood and is killing it and I messaged her last night. I don't know if I will hear back but I was like I want. I would love to hear everything. uh-huh I do have an article that I found that gives a little bit more info on it But it's it's a psychological drama and Odessa young who I from assassination nation. I don't own that is and Logan Lerman from indignation. They play the Young couple will that move in with Shirley and Stanley and find themselves fodder for a psycho drama that inspires Shirley's next novel. So is this Any way related to Shirley Jackson. It is absolutely about Shirley Jackson. Oh I wish I found this surprised you because this is like totally up your alley. Although I win of realized that the person who did the screenplay was someone that you're actually fucking new. WELL SO I. I don't even remember where I saw this but I think I was looking up something else. I am DVD. And I saw this thing about Shirley and I and it looked like the picture. If you look it up is like the Promo pick is truly in Stanley in bed. And like I just was like Oh interesting. That's Elizabeth Moss. Oh this is about Shirley. 'cause I knew Stanley Hyman and so I knew that that you know I'm like Oh. This is about chilly. Jackson it's fictionalized highly fictionalized. Obviously based on the book but then I'm like scrolling through it's like screenplay by Sarah Bobbins and I was like Holy Shit maybe we interview her for the show. Well I I I did messenger like I said. I haven't talked to her or seen her in a number of years ears because she moved to L. A. Some years ago but she's a cool eighty and she's a fantastic writer so if you ever see anything with her name I watch it. Because she's she's great awesome and I ordered the book already so I'm GonNa read the book and then be ready for it. I don't know when or if it'll be released like you know widely in the US but it's premiering at Sundance and Josephine deckers on the list of Lake Up and coming female directors which I thought was really cool too sue so it sounds right and like I believe. Elizabeth Moss is producer along with Sarah. So wow but yeah I have no idea. I message edge. Sarah and I was like if you've been in Jackson hole time and I never knew who knows but still I'm very excited about it and very proud that someone from Chicago is involved. Uh and killing it Hollywood. And we're getting some female voices out there and yeah south the novel if any of you curious is by Susan Scarf Merrill and And to be clear this is not a horror movie. It is a drama thriller but it is about a horror writer. So this is very cool honorable mention and it's a but the thriller reeler aspect. I mean Jackson. It's totally related about her. It's got to be kind of weird so it's I'm I'm I wanNA see it yesterday. Well at the time time of when this airs it will actually have premiered at Sundance two days ago. What's you just blew my mind? Time travel everybody. Ra so yeah. So if I hear from Sarah I will let you guys know but I told her I was like I just. I would love to hear everything about how this came about. Because I'm Super Fan girl for S- really accent accent so answers writing so you know women are all that is GonNa do it with our twenty twenty movie wrap uh-huh and Yeah so we're looking forward to watching maybe half a little less than half breath but well some of them were actually quite a few because some of them are going to watch for fun. I'm sure yeah. No that's true. We'll probably like a lot more than we think we will. And when we watch them I'm we will make sure to post about it on the social media's and maybe even do an episode about one of them if they really blow our dicks. Aw but for sure. We'll be talking about these on our twenty twenty movie. Wrap up at the end of the air either way. We'll be discussing these again at some point.
