"What is interesting. Oh it's incredible. It's incredible yeah. That was the other thing people are like. what are they doing. Releasing animated film this juggernaut. Like yeah so the incredible one of our favorite movies one and that was pixar biggest opening weekend. Ever to like their opening against the second weekend of the biggest opening pixar. It had but then weirdly. Like i feel like every pixar movie had kind of out grossed. The previous one nema had been so huge that people thought incredible nemo style numbers and it came in a little under and i wonder if that's polar express stealing a little bit of its repeat viewing right right right right. But here's the thing so we have done the incredible 's weekend so sometimes that's the problem for us but no ray. The grudge saw alfie. All out of the top five because there's four new movies number two is the polar express opening at twenty three million dollars six thirty. I think it opened on a wednesday or something like yeah. Y- is number three. It is a cow boy. Oh boy i guess an action comedy from a fairly major director for the moment not a good director but a hitmaker. Any of forgotten movie from him. Kind of like a throwback eighties sorta sleazy action. Comedy i've never seen. It isn't a two hander. no it's not. It's more four people above the title kind of like look. We got a lot of coolish thing people and it's like has this really vague tight tower working hours but it's after the sunset brett ratner so he was on the on the trail of brett ratner there but it was hijack harrelson and sheetal and cheadle. That's right yeah you also got a nomi- harris you got michael t williamson trick garrity. There's people chris can not exist. What the fuck is that movie. It's like you know it's one of those movies where it's like. You imagine someone saying we gotta get over and all these guys. But i have no idea like who is getting over on. Why feel like in my memory. That was one of the last or the last movies where pierce bronson was still trying to pretend to like he was still like to be out a non bond star like i can watch any movie that he was trying to still be like hot and then he sort of did a shift where he was like. What if i just started bracing my age and for like more like character and that and then he was like all right. This works better. That's him sort of doing steve mcqueen any kind of stuff that movie. I feel like five lights. Correct correct has the same year is laws of attraction where the lawyer romcom he did with Julianne moore and the year after is the matador which is him being like. I'll play an anti hero. I'll play a washed up guy. I'll get a golden globe. Nominations number four so after the sunset by the way opens to eleven million and made winnie all right number. Four is a horror sequel It's the ring to know it is. I want to say i'm going to. It's the fifth in a long running but recently revived. You know at this. Point in time franchise saw. That's all emerge. It sounds been rebooted so it's fifth in total but there was a gap. They took a break for a little while. You're saying that's right. There's three then. There's a gap and then there's a relaunch with kind of a new tone that people were into it. Okay all right. We'll do this in two thousand and four you say. And how many of their been since then. There has only been two since. Then and then a reboot a maligned reboot leave some. Maybe the next tomb might have been kinda straight to. It's it's not. It's not the texas chainsaw. Prequel isn't it. It's not it's not it's a franchise you like griffin. It's a franchise i like. Oh oh it. Seed of chucky seed of chuck one right because brighter. Chucky is the one where they're like. Do you like this. Yeah this tone and people like yes in the. oc to turkeys the one. That's really bananas right like yes. It's really that own. For the one where they let on mancini directed who had written all the films that had slaughtered the weird evolution of the franchise and he was just like. I'm going full. Get it like seed of chucky is like a john waters movie downtown. John waters playing paparazzi. Chucky murdering britney spears. it's just vulgarity. But it kind of rolls. It's a controlling film. I believe red man is like fourth built. I the right and jennifer tilly. Who played a woman who then becomes gets trapped in a doll plays in this movie. Jennifer tilly the actress who also fucks trump seed of this movie. Yeah you would dig that whole series. Ben all right and for their son is named glenn as a glen or glenda joke. It's very odd film. Yes number five is a sequel. Okay maybe be slightly more. Whatever it's a sequel. I think this movie was probably like. Oh well we'll be a huge hit and it was a disappointment in america. But this is gonna be may two hundred and sixty million dollars worldwide. I made forty in america. But america was not and i lived in britain when this movie came out. It was like we're go it. Everybody come on. Come on come on round up the house we're going to the odeon newcastle. We're gonna fucking see this thing because the theater was packed and was howling. This movie stinks. But it was a big deal. But it's a comedy comedy comedy sequel and they never made another one. Even though this one did like more than a decade later..

"To you. It's phonies you have the who during the song. And it's you have one of the most powerful and best vocalists about roger daltry in prodigy guitar player and a crazy but amazing drummer and one of the three best rock bassist ever. What gives this song the power is somebody playing the damn fiddle bosma or whatever it is it sounds like a fiddle to my untrained ear but the but how how that how that elevates the song is amazing when you're talking about the freaking who yeah that drum is what is driving the bus on a song like i don't know i i know you can't see you but you can see me. Did you just see what like happened to me when that song is playing yes Starting or drumming line. You mentioned you. You've mentioned this in the last episode in between us quoting. So i married an axe murderers and all the other nonsense we engaged in is that there are times when 'cause in almost every rock band the bassist and the drummer or locked in there working together. They're lying down. There's a lot of times that keith actually is fighting with john. It sounds like he's not. He's not just trying to lock in with his rhythm section partner. He's the drum directly at the front playing at the top. Yeah he's not gonna go yes. Yeah and he's it's almost like he lead guitar player but he hit things instead of folks rings. Yeah well you know. We just went through a rough time where we talked about his driver. How about we spend a little bit of time talking more about some of the crazy things. He did like wild antics okay so he was taking a luxury hotel in copenhagen in nineteen seventy two for some reason. He became enamored with his rooms. Waterbed god you bring it down into the lobby and enlisted. Pete townsend to help him but before they could even get it out of the frame the bed bursts and flooded the room and hallway and the quick-thinking moon call the front desk complaining about the catastrophe and was soon moved to the presidential suite. Which i'll call nate. They actually wrecks that room as well so but he was trying to get his bandmate to help him move the waterbed down into the lobby so he could inspect it. Somebody's so it was at this time where he went to the doctor and of course they did. They did the full on checkup like well. You know you know how they always ask like. Are you drinking. are you smoking or point year. We're talking here. We're talking about nineteen seventy ish. Nineteen seventy nine. Seventy one seventy two so this. This is a a little while after. He was determined that his sobriety was not salvageable when it was viewed that he he drank a bottle of cova. Ca a bottle of pain and took a bunch of amphetamines for breakfast. Yeah this was after that. Could you have for breakfast. Well bollock boissier. And some grits. What what the grit. Sellable you out the grips absorbed. But he's we went to the doctor for this checkup and he told the doctor what he was drinking. Which wasn't he was having a bottle of whisky a day. The doctor basically said you know actually. I don't recommend that he said you know if you if you stop drinking a bottle of whiskey every day you'll probably live a little bit longer. So he switched to drinking a bottle of brandy. A day oh great thinking back in nineteen seventy-two he flipped his new porsche into a somersault when he dropped the speeding car into first gear. Coming arrests only a few feet from the edge of a cliff. Goodness gracious pretty sure. There's also like three people in the car with him a hick his driving. He's driving poor really fast and almost goes off a cliff but he he didn't have a license or or anything. Now we learned earlier. Yeah i don't. I don't actually think he ever got his license. Which i have to tell you and maybe it was different in the uk at that time in the united states back then it was a pretty low clear to get a driver's license. I think that my i recall a couple of my. They got their driver's license. From the damn sears and roebuck catalog literally. They spent something like fifty cents to sears and roebuck. thanks about a driver's license was a member. Grandma's best friend marie. Marie actually showed me her first driver's license because she's still kept it and it was metal there metal. It was almost like a dog tag. You got like a metal dog tag looking thing but but you could get them from like sears and roebuck or there's a lot of catalogs where you could just you would send like your name and address and stuff that they would. They would kind of embossed that in like a stanford into a metal little metal plight and senator. And that was your. And i'm making greg bunny ears driver's license yeah. I will marie when she showed me hers. I was like what is this. she's like. Oh that's my driver's license because apparently that was actually that was that was legal. That you there was no photo on it. It was it was literally. I think her name. You didn't have go to. You didn't have to go to the dmz or any official government office. Yeah i mean pretty much just you could probably print your own but you could get a nice fancy metal one from the sears and roebuck catalog. Yeah different time. Yup unlike his contemporaries which were like ginger baker and john bonham moon actually hated trump. zoeller's refused to play them in concerts. Really were a garden. On the tenth of june nineteen seventy four townsend entwistle decided to spontaneously stop playing lost man and listen to moon's drum solo moon continued for like a couple seconds and then stop and just screamed drum lows of bullring. Wow ended nineteen seventy of that same year he actually found another use for that nazi costume. We talked about beforehand which was to try in annoy his new malibu neighbor steve mcqueen while while moon head designs on becoming friends with mcqueen. His wife allie mcgraw. The actor made it clear that he preferred his privacy. And not wanna take no for an answer. Moon bulldoze his way into mcqueen's only to be bitten by the family dog and which it was reported that moon actually bit the dog back so literally. Man bites doll. That was that was a headline someone could have actually written yet. And then when the movie star brought the authorities into the matter moons showed up to the meeting dresses. A nazi general. Not just any. General erwin rommel erwin rommel and an after his neighbor alone. I can't i guess. Lord of i bet your dog address like nazi piss you off the formal proceedings about the incident. He doesn't the officer via authorities were called in a well. What is what is exactly. Your your neighbor has done to annoy you. Will he He bit my dolls. He marched through my front yard.

"He always came to reminded me a little bit of Steve McQueen. Something about him. I thought he was pretty good band, So I thought you would have interviewed one of those along the way. John. No, we never did. But you're right. It. Craig does remind you of Steve McQueen. There's no ifs and buts about that. You thought so, too. You have the first time I saw him. That's what it kind of brought me back to that. That type of person now, Jon Drummond, you remember join the imitation around Reagan. Announcing the baseball. Yeah, we're talking about the time I met him. He was a Wrigley Field with Harry Carey. That's correct, And he recalled how he had worked a wh owned the mine. And of course, there was not the major league team there. But most all of the markets were doing that doing their baseball remotely. So to speak, would be in the studio. You get the wire ticker, saying Tom Morgan is up and that he would take And finally, Chris. It flies out, but in between you had to fill and you say Morgan takes a lot of strikes to the outside. He's this Morgan is a hard he He's a home run here. He's a fastball here. You gotta watch this guy. Keep it. Keep it outside, and you can't use your phantom. So he pad like that. And so Reagan was very articulate and was very successful in doing that. But he wasn't the only one that lot so many, um, did that at that time, recreate, we call every creation. Don't they have like a thing where they would like to do it? And, oh, that ball's hit like they fit, so Oh, sure, they would also have crowd noise. I'm that way. You would hear the crowd The mumbling all the time. The crowd on the thing. Oh, yeah, they would take great advance. All they would know is that Jones flew out and they might down on the FL would come over the wire, and they make it look like Jones had to make a Spectacular catch by the right field fence to keep it not being home run, So they took a lot of dramatic license. And by the way, there was something I could do that even the game. Remember Bill Stern going back years ago? Okay, guy has The ball. He had that he had missed name the wrong person running the ball English going Davis. And so the spotter said, No, no, no, it's blended. That's got the ball and so of what what Stern said. Well, he laughed. But Davis laterals to blend in, and Blanchard makes this part so this way to get around it, but that so that's just a remote. They made things up. They sometimes that other live shot from that from the Put on the game itself. One of the other cool things that on the show just West Week when Cameron called in And then later that day, he stopped by my shop, Triple Crown trading in Naperville and did some shopping courtesy of the Make a Wish Foundation so that Actually was really cool that they can and Cameron got some nice stuff, so hopefully he opened some packs and gets good. It's out already be picked up some nice stuff while he was in So that was kind of cool. Um But really now, Bill Huggins one more time. Can you fill people in since you get that truck coming to the Chicago area in case people are just tuning in. It's coming in the Chicago next week to pick stuff up to the Huggins and Scott February auction. Yeah, we will be there on February our Wednesday Michael be in town, and if anybody has some Up.

"Okay I. Stop Word on the street is came and Connie has had an exotic getaway with all of their kids to work on their marriage. Of course, we are rooting for them but this is a move lots of stars have done. With mixed results in the past, do you guys think couples know deep down if they're gonNA, make it before they go on these trips or do they just convince themselves that the trip is going to help and they're gonNA work now I think they go like they go intention of it being you know helpful beneficial but I think you know sometimes you go with the Kevin shoot ever like plan something to the t. like vacation or something and everything just completely goes wrong. So you go yeah. Intention of having an amazing time and then you're like Oh, this is a nightmare. Happens I mean I went on a trip you know at a point in my last relationship where I thought Oh we'll get. We'll have a weekend away. It'll be a nice distraction but I knew that was over. Over I think certainly with Brad and Jen when they went on the trip, mean Brad New I'm different out of the marriage because Indian is waiting for me. So I think in this case I think it's a real effort and I think that these two. Are Working on their relationship these celebration vacations that people go on. Solving. Feel like. Hashtag. So Schmidt shirts salvation vacation. I think that if you're going to go on that either you guys go in with this intention of fixing it or really is that last like Lettuce Ryan Save this. But if you're just going in to try and like you don't really WanNa fix things because you know deep down if it's for over one hundred. Going and you know it's over it's just you stuck in a room with less distractions and you're forced to like deal with those things you don't like anyway. So. Really ought to me you gotta be ready to work or thinking. I'm going to do everything one last time I'm going to get one last hookup in I'm going to get you know one last hugging. The other person is thinking I, want to try to save this. So you know you have to go in with the statement engines. Meanwhile, Kylie is thriving as all know it is her twenty third birthday today and we show many questions I mean what the Hell is this I'm GonNa ask you because I don't think you care that much about flowers. Would you this flower display this sort of bizarre flower display or do just want some normal roses? It looks like upside down pineapple. No I No and House. Yeah. I watch. This in my house is taking up the whole first floor like. She has a house big enough to hold it but like this is not going to work in my house in two miniature versions, it's really impressive. If just consider how many flowers that is the craftsmanship that goes into it. Feels like it should be at some sort of like of event like a homo. Championship, where people are walking around like there's thousands of people story she had this. Little white you're doing you're destroying hundreds of flowers. One person to enjoy maybe a few people. If it's her family, it's just a lot and can no. Aspirin and they're known for the over the top flower installations. We see them at every holiday every Valentine's Day every birthday and they're usually really beautiful. This is the first time that I'm kind of like does she like like I don't know even her style and it does now I can only see pineapple also she's sending these to herself right? Like we don't think someone sending them to her. It's not like with she knows her cell like she I think she I don't think she's sending them to herself I. Think She's setting these things up and she's like mom it's my birthday and I need to have a happy birthday Kylie by the pool. Like this standard this is like brushing your teeth rally you would send your own like Happy Birthday, Senate Oh. I am that desperate I. Don't know why you think I'm not like I as McQueen of just doing anything to make myself looked a little more love look. Yeah. No I would do it anything. You'll see. Meanwhile and everybody was going crazy over Cardi me and meg. Song Walk, which stands for I'm just kidding, but it's not all good. Some critics want to ban the song saying it's too sexually explicit vile and quote sets the entire female gender back by one hundred years. So dots on this guy's what he thinks about this. A both. For those that don't know. Stands for what? Is. but in terms of their argument at this is setting the female gender back one hundred years. The female gender was way far back on hundred years ago, and it wasn't because they were embracing their sexuality and taking control their own bodies because other people aren't doing it. So if anything's GONNA, take the female gender one, Hundred Years Back. It's someone telling women what to say and do like they're doing right now. Man Who tweeted his criticism of it and says that he watched the video accidentally I how? Do you watch this accidentally you accidentally watched it over and over on repeat on. Youtube. In, other news five in cows recovering after breaking his back in his home in Malibu hikes he hit up twitter after a six hour emergency surgery saying some good advice.

"Saving face still feels to me like a genre of one in so many different ways. And that's not really a great thing in that you would think that after saving face the world will be filled with Asian American Lesbian Ron. Calm but the fact is the way that you the way that you actually told that story still to me is unique and has been until. I watched your second film. Thank you so. I'm glad you see a similar DNA. Because I think they're quite different films in that. I'm always worried that people who are like I love saving face are going to be deeply disappointed by this one because this is not saving face to. It's actually genre wise. It's actually quite different but I also very I've been told I've a very specific voice and so it's possible that that voice just comes through and both it's it's not just the voice I think but it's also things tangling with in this this larger notion which I think. We'll talk in more depth about of the layers intersectional layers. I think of what it means to be Asian American to be a woman to be not just heterosexual right. These are things which I think are pop. Culture hasn't done a great job of converging right and telling stories that are appealing to to a mass audience and I think he really successfully did that and saving face. I think you've done that here. It is very different but I think those are what make so necessarily that. You've told another story if you will how well thank you? I mean to be totally by though I thank you so much for what both of you just said. And you've obviously been definitely top. Three of the people who've helped keep this film alive hunting in between like took Jeff's articles loosen between Phil bringing it back for the ten year anniversary. And so I. I really appreciate that like you have no idea how much it's meant to me I it's funny because I I mean I knew. There's like a small very very rabid fan base for saving face but I always assumed it was really small like it's like all right me my friends. Everyone Dave dated. Maybe everyone those people have dated. And that's probably and then like that's ninety five percent of it and then like five percent or like creeper white guys you know and that's probably like the band base but the I do feel like one thing that was shocking to me is when as film got announced. It just seemed like a crazy number. People came out of the work to be like that. You know I've been waiting for another Mike. You have like what I didn't even know this this and And I probably honestly is probably better for me. I didn't know that because I think it would have freaked me out. I think it's the Best I. I'm a big fan of low expectations. I think the lower I can keep people's expectations the better for me but I think that You Know I. It's just interesting because I I mean I don't know if that's just an artifact of the way I tell stories to like when you talk about the intersection -ality I wonder if it's because Obviously McQueen filmmaker. I'm an Asian American filmmaker. And you know I spoke. English is my second language like there's all sorts of things but because they're just part of my life. I think my treatment things is that I don't I don't treat it so previously like it's going bleed like I'm a big fan of subtlety and nuance and so I kind of love it. When like you know like I I try to write characters specifically as I can because I wanna make them feel human But when I wake up in the morning I don't think Oh. Gosh another day to combat homophobia or another day to like deal. Although these days if I go on twitter I do think conversation hike but like left wound vices like I wake up. I'm just like okay. I have to get up. What are the things I have to do? Which is like pretty much like everybody else right and I think that is a little bit of the philosophy that I right behind. Is that the textures of a character. Argh going to come out especially in the directing. Because I'm the way I cost him the way I choose to frame them like there's all sorts of stuff that goes into that but my goal is to in a weird way. Make people that. Maybe you don't normally see or you don't have in your own life but make them feel incredibly human and accessible to To you and so I don't know I that might just be A. I wonder if that's what your your reacting to. I think I think it is. I mean I think that there's something that comes from authenticity right and as it appears on screen that even in telling stories that might feel familiar otherwise I feel very different. To some people. Right like to your point there are you know kind of a creeper white dudes. We're probably watching it saying okay. Wait for them to kiss. Whatever I can't imagine that anybody who watches wouldn't wouldn't ultimately be absorbed and taken somewhere different from where they began. I I mean I remember the first time I saw it I didn't know what to expect. And after seeing it I I just knew that it was It was a film that I think would change. People change

Beastie Boys Made a Movie. We Made a Beastie Boys Podcast.

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this. Is the big picture a conversation? Show about Beastie Boys. That's right beastie. Boys made a movie beastie boys story which is directed by Spike Jones and available to watch right now on apple. Tv plus. If you're like me and worship Beastie boys you need to watch this movie later in the show. I'll be talking to add rock. And like diaw Beastie boys about their movie history their favorite fruits. How they're doing in quarantine. The New York Knicks documentaries that they want to see a bunch of other stuff as I tried to keep them focused on our conversation. A really love these guys beastie. Boys are my favorite band ever and it isn't even really close so to talk about them before we get to them. I asked the VIC Ferrari to my Alessandro Allegra. Join me it's Chris Ryan. Hi Chris. I've always seen myself more as a Nathan Wind Guy. I've been waiting my whole life to do this. Podcast so let's go. I'm very glad you're here with me. I can't think of anybody else. I'd WanNa have here other than you. Except maybe Mike the Inadequacy and they're coming later. So when I say beastie boys what's the first thing that pops in your head Chris? Probably the invention of cool so I think one thing that we've talked about a lot over the last twelve to eighteen months. We've had a lot of Quentin Tarantino podcasts. We've we celebrated a lot of his movies on the watchable. We talked about them on. Big Picture Podcast with him and something that comes up. Ally is kind of how he gave us a vocabulary or language to through which to understand culture and understand the world and I think the Beastie boys are equally responsible for that in both of our lives in terms of introducing us to so much music and so much other culture that wound up becoming just part of our like way in which we relate to the rest of the world through these like Kung Fu and exploitation movies through rap Reggae punk rock weird funk like all like it just basically made collectors and fans out of out of us at the risk of stepping on music exists. I wanted to ask you why you think you. And I to some extent to are so interested in figures who are all about basically like recombinant culture. You know who take all the disparate parts of stuff that they love and smash it all together because that is the thing that the movie and then returning to all of this music that I listened to over and over and over and over again in my life that I have thought about is like wow they really just jammed all the stuff they liked together to make something new like. What is it about that? The second part of what you said is the most important thing. Do you think about the people that we really respond to. Wu Tang clan quitting Tarantino. Beastie boys it means we're very basic very and B. It's the most important part is finding the second thing the thing that you're GonNa make out of all this shit. And that's what makes me so excited is when someone uses all these postmodern tools in these reconstructs. All these things out of this of Cultural Ephemera to say something else. Wootten Klan took all those Kung Fu movies and took all those samples but made something that could only have been made in Staten Island. You know back could only have made the music. He made with the experience that he had. And the Beastie boys could only have been the beastie boys by combining bad brains with run DMC. Yeah and I feel like it's not a mistake that so much of what we do at the ringer and so much of what you and I have been trying to do in. Our lives is basically celebrate and be enthusiastic about the things that we care about and I feel like these artists are the same way if you if you think about Beastie boys and you even look at the way they tell their story in the movie. It's just we really liked was the clash and grandmaster flash and Cheech and Chong and we were trying to find a way to make all those things make sense together and I feel the same way about what we do every day I feel about you and I love the NBA and we love Top Gun and we love. I love deb's I don't know how you feel Dad's but You know just trying to find a way to make all those things fit together so I feel like I have aped and tried to copy a lot of what those guys do. And I feel like a kinship to their their mission their creative project. Absolutely I mean like you and I don't mean to make it sound like you. And I are the Beastie boys here but you know. I think that we use the Internet the way other people would use a sampler right and we draw in all these different media. We'd take youtube videos. We take a picture and I think it was probably more the case before we started working professionally together in an editorial capacity but we would have like tumblers and blog spots and you were just kind of like throw a picture Steve McQueen up in an article you were writing about those face and it would have some sort of relationship and I think that that was our way of continuing along this tradition of mixing and matching different pieces of culture to say something about yourself. The thing that you said that I think is probably one of the most important parts of the movie that will nocco very remarked upon because a lot of it is going to be spent talking about. Yok and it should be because this is very much I think an image to him in a real moving tribute to their friend but when Mike D says in the beginning of the movie that he was just this weird kid who found the clash. Not only is that like. That's the origin story for a lot of people. Who like they find that one band? Whether it's the dead or the clash or you know run DMC. Whoever it is that makes them think that they are now. All of not alone in the world the clashes like a really really important. Template for the Beastie boys because they are basically A Crossroads Group A marketplace. At Crossroads Group. It's where all these different cultures are coming. And they're setting up their wares and you can pick and choose off these tables and then you go home and you make something out of it. And that's what the clash did too. I mean you can make a lot of arguments about appropriation. And whether or not the people who the clash were taken from or or paying homage to properly compensated for the work that they did And the same thing could go. For the Beastie boys but I think a lot more people know about Lee Perry. Because of the Beastie boys did not you know and and that's like a really really important act in culture. Everything is about timing too I think about when they hit the scene and who they were working with and on the one hand I guess there's an appropriation question. I think they've moved past that so effectively because they were just literally there with Russell. Simmons and Rick Rubin and run DMC making music together and they were a part of something that was essentially punk at the end of its first true like lightning rod phase at the end of the day and and rapid the Dawn. You know I mean. They weren't there necessarily in in the parks in the south. Bronx but you know one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three played on the radio. Yeah Yes yes. And there's that great moment in the movie where Africa is asked about cookie. Post by one of the members of the Beastie boys and you can see like they're they're they're they're in the moment and they're going to dense area and you know performing for white people introducing them to wrap it away and that couldn't have happened if they if it was just five years earlier five years later. The same is true for the class. You know it's like they arrived at a time when the world was ready to hear rock and try to play reggae. And what that means for the future reggae. There's something also about this specific approach to the world though that jumps out to me. Which is it's not. Just this is what we like. It's this is what we like and I don't care if you don't like it and I don't I actually don't care if you don't get it because when I think about the things that I knew when I first heard the band it was you could fit it inside of a very small box. I just did my cultural reference points. The music that I knew about the the records the comedy everything that they were throwing in. I wouldn't say that I discovered them because they were sampled for three seconds on a on a record on policy boutique but they were a window. You know I had never heard of Sadaharu. Oh until I heard the beastie boys rap about him you know like there's so much in their music the sampling the lyric writing even if it is in their songs are very rarely like high minded. They're not necessarily pursuits of big ideas. But they put big ideas in front of you. Just by dint of what they were interested in and I I liked that kind of take it or leave it quality they bring to it and I feel like that really comes out in the movie too. Don't you think yeah? It's only a couple of people are lucky enough to have other people care about the thing that they care about. You know you can. You can play the game and you can try. Ride the wave of what's popular at any given moment. But it's so weird because what the beastie boys did especially once they move to La. I think wound up having such an incredibly profound formative effect on all the culture that comes after it but it so it winds up being underrated as as to what a zag that was how crazy it was for those guys to be like. Yeah we'RE GONNA LEAVE NEW YORK. We're GONNA leave behind rapper. We're going to go to capitol from Def Jam. And we're GONNA work with these two producers that basically no one's ever heard of an assemble these like really out there incongruous samples to build together a new sound that we're gonNA use to define us for the next couple of decades. The only thing I wanted to talk about because I think is probably also a reason why you and I like them. Much is that and this comes across very much in the movie much

Olivia McQueen you walk into pants on fire. Tell us about being a teacher. Is there a certain teacher who inspired you to become a teacher? Well my aunt gets her so much off. So that's one of the things. Oh it's about the good hours and you get a lot of money and you get a lot of money for being the teacher. Oh Yeh we gotta talk about. Maybe they could make even more.

Oh and they they. Stopping bad after preschool. Right a liberal. So I WANNA learn some more things about you. I think Lisa wants to learn more thing all my gosh I was just saying. Is there anything else about her? Lots of things so many things in fact we're going to play to truth and a lie. Olivia's GonNa tell us three facts about herself. Two of those facts will be true. One will be ally. We will figure out which one is the lie A- Libya. What are your three facts? I've been a competitive dancer for four years now. My grandfather is a famous Irish folks here in Ireland and I love marshmallows. Feels LIKE SETTING US? Up for trick. Doesn't like marshmallows. Exposes excuse trying to play Games with those? She thinks she can come in here and just pull. The wool over is our sensors. That's it. Marshmallows is ally Nice. Try Okay okay. You're trying to outsmart her gameplay Libya. Which one of those facts is ally? I Love Mushrooms Campbell today. Show you do not like marshmallows. I've a story though the story so I strap and I had a loud marshmallows to soothe my throat. And I had so much that I didn't like the money more. Oh so you overdid it on the marshmallow once upon a time you like them. Yes so not even in hot chocolate now. Would you like them on a train? I would like them nowhere. Our first expert is Lara. Night please introduce to Libya. Let me out my name is Lauren. White. And I'm actually in jeans designer. Which means I work on developing and designing sheets. Thank you very much Laura. Let's meet our second expert. Simon fastener Simon. Please introduce yourself to Libya Libya. I'm Simon Baz ner and I'm a denim influencers. We'll have to learn more about that. I'm not sure what that is or how you can influence your denim. But we're going to find out. Hey Lisa is that a bootleg copy of those sounds sounds originally sourced by me. It's actually time right. That's when we put our experts on the hot seat while they enter Olivia's questions Lisa. Who should we put on the hot seat? I Simon because I want to be an influence there and maybe if I picked him he'll tell me how to be an influence. Okay that's fair all right. Well I are you influenced. I'm an insulin. So you're influenced. Let's see how that works? Okay Olivia what question do you have for Simon to start? Simon? What's a gene influencer? Gene or Denim influence is an expert in all things denim or genes so When people are interested in What type of accessories would go with a certain type of Denham or a certain type of gene? That's where I come in and I let them know a what would go with that and be where they can get the best and most fashion forward version of that. I run a blog entitled GET THEM DENIM DOT Com. That's why keep everyone up to date with the latest denim fashion designer. So if the denim you want exists. I'll show you where to get them. Okay Laura. What is your favorite style of jeans? My favorite style of jeans is a High Rise Jack Gang. They're super soft and they're super stretchy and they're my favorite. I wear them every day. They're called high-rise. Because they go the way from your feet over your head and then the Zipper is where it opens for your face. You might be onto something. I think you're influencing LISA. I've questions for Simon. Where were the first pair of jeans? Made by WHO in the first pair of jeans were made in Italy in the town of Genoa and by and by WHO will they're made for genetic for for Genoese sailors so They were made by emend named named Lawrence Influenza. Okay Laura what made you want to become an expert on jeans while I got my first job in jeans in Los Angeles about twenty years ago and my favorite part about getting into the denim business is denim is a very specific fabric. If you don't wash it and you wear over and over and over for many years it starts taking on the characteristics of the person that's wearing that garment which is really really cool so my job is actually to recreate some of these really awesome old vintage garments. Make it new make it really modern out of new fabrics. It's so much fun in really creative sue. You're saying it's best not to wash your jeans and you are correct. Actually have a well. That depends so if you're if you're buying a really stretchy gene that means it's going to have some spandex something in it to make it really stretchy. That goes with cotton. You're going to want to be careful not to wash those james but every two or three times you wear it because that heat and a lot of water will actually give a little wear and tear on that gene so you can do some spot cleaning. Sometimes if you have a really rare pair of jeans you might want to do a couple of fun. Things like put them in the freezer. Put them on the snow hanging out to dry. You just want to be careful not to hit them with too much hot water into wash them too. Often were other than giving them a fun trip while them in the freezer well some people think it might be a wise tell but I have personally found that sometimes bacteria can grow on anything actually so when you WanNa wash something most of the time. You're not only just getting out the hot chocolate that spilled on your garment but you're actually just washing something to be cleaner when you put that in a really cold environment just like putting a rug outside in the snow in the wintertime it can actually kill bacteria that might be on that garment cool. Denver's that y your backyard is covered in rugs. I think you're at the wrong house. Lisa Oh wait Do you live in a rug store. I do not oh I was at the wrong. Okay go ahead okay. This is for both of you. What are most teams made of? Who wants to take? That sure. I'll take its motions are all denim is really is a is mostly made from cotton So I'd say cotton and then for the for the more stretchy jeans lasting or you know Three percents SPANDEX so most of the older jeans before we would say probably about Nineteen ninety-five nineteen ninety. Eight were one hundred percent cotton. Since then we've added more and more stretchy stuff that goes with the cotton which we call spandex or like war lasting that being said some jeans actually like the ones that way right now go up two hundred percent stretch so those numbers of the new fibres that you have to add to get the genes. Really Stretchy has gone up and stretch. Jeans are actually the most popular jeans right now in the market cool. Hey stretch jeans. If you're listening good for YOU CONGRATS. You did it. Or she may be stretching the Truth Laura. What are the most current trends and jeans so one of the number one trends in jeans right now? It's actually two polar opposite idea so one is getting back to a no stretch jeans or what. We call a rigid gene for women. In addition to that really stretchy high wasted jeans is also a big trend on the women's sign on the men's side. We have a couple of things coming back so we have a skinny slouch gene. Plus a little bit of puddle at the bottom. That's a cool word for a really long gene. That shows off your sneakers. In addition to that we also have the Dad Jean coming back which President Obama rocked all the

Opening Act - Rumors in Rock

"First false rumor. Did you ever hear the rumor about Keith? Moon driving a Rolls Royce into a hotel pool. I've heard a lot of stories about Keith. Moon well. He is the quintessential rock and roll guy and bad boy he definitely collected Nazi memorabilia. He may have bitten. Steve McQueen's Hog and blew up his drums win. The WHO played on the smothers brothers. Comedy Hour. I cannot wait to do his episode I am. I have like four books based on. Keith Moon I am. I am locked and loaded. I Love Keith. He is my soul. Well so those things may be true however there was a rumor that he drove a Rolls Royce into a pool at the Holiday Inn in Flint Michigan on his twenty. First Birthday. This is not true. According to Pete Townsend. The story is actually a combination of two different stories. That has become one not true rumor. So Keith Moon. In one of the stories like one of the incidents he left the Hamburg off of a car and it rolled into a pool which was under construction and to not have any water in hit home. Which would be worse though driving? Dr Into a pool with water or driving a car into a pool without water but he didn't drive the car into that. I'm just like either one either or I'm just saying like it just rolled in on its own. Which would do more damage I think you're pretty much screwed either way fair enough. The cars a loss of it goes near the pool. Yeah Okay and then so the second story that this was combined with to create the not true drove. Rolls Royce. Into a pool was that he charged new car to the band. Who refuse to pay for it. So Moon drove it into a muddy pond in his garden and call the dealer to come pick it up. So it's too true. Stories rolled into one story right. That's not true. Yeah Oh yeah. It's incredible and that's not our last Keith. Moon rumor either. Nope our next one which is true now okay. I should say with the caveat that these are true and false based on articles that we both read and so there might be room for error. So this is just like fun. Yeah it's just fun and it's inauguration. It's yeah just what we found. No one has photographic evidence. It's just fun fun so I hope you guys out. Don't get angry and you're like that never happened or that did happen bub-bubba so like don't don't get mad at us is just this is just meant to be fun and a little bit looser so and just for us to kind of talk off the cuff so Our next one. Which is true. Is All about Ozzy Osbourne. Oh my so ozzy. Osbourne achieved infamy overnight after incident on January twentieth nineteen eighty two in Des Moines Iowa during the height of his drug problem. That is putting it mildly. Ozzy Osbourne was performing when an audience member through a bat on stage. The singer believing that it was rubber and I do believe that he thought it was robbery. I don't think he would have. I believe that too. Yeah bid off its head as a stunt only to find out that the bat was real and alive not only that but as he declares in liner notes to the two thousand two reissue of diary of a madman. The Bat wound up biting him as well which forced him to be treated for rabies. The incident fed his rock madman legend along with the one time that he bit off the head of a dove which basically what happened was when he first met with Columbia records in Nineteen ninety-one. He took a live dub into the meeting with him and bit off the head in front of the horrified executives. Awful yeah so crazy man out. I wouldn't sign him to a record deal yeah. He was also arrested for urinating on. Or near the Alamo. And while on tour with Motley crue he allegedly got into a one upmanship. Dare contest with Nikki. Nikki six and I'm sorry that is at is a contest. I would never even get close to know but he ended up snorting a line of ants better than biting the heads off live animals. I think though no okay. The dove thing is kind of unforgivable. The bad thing is understandable. But you snorted a line of ants would if they were fire ants also. You just have ants in your sinuses now. I'm sad I read that. Oh my God you have to elaborate immediately regretted it I apologize. You should move on move on Thanksgiving on next all right. Here's a good one Kay cass. Elliot choke to death on a ham sandwich. Can We bury this now? Please yeah really not cool. I don't like this lie at all. This rumors terrible are you. Doing Mama Cass. Yes I am all right so this came up. Following a series of sold out gigs. In London Mama Cass retired to her apartment where she died of heart failure on July. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Seventy Four. A rumor spread very quickly that she died from choking on a ham sandwich which is just a horrible thing to say you know yes. She was a little overweight route. So it's believed that the rumor started when Dr Anthony. Greenberg the physician who I examined CASS. After her death wrote she appeared to have been eating a ham sandwich and drinking coca cola while lying down a very dangerous thing to do. She seemed to have choked on her ham sandwich. So so great job Dr Greenberg for that one. But point of fact her autopsy showed that a heart problem leading to heart. Failure was the cause of death not a sandwich or any other item lodged in her throat or trachea. She had actually had very little to eat the day before she died like her stomach was pretty clear. No dead I'm actually going to piggyback and double down on a Mama Cass and Keith Moon. True story with us. They were not but they did die in the same apartment. Yeah rockstars have been taken from US. Way Too young and it just so happens that two brilliant musicians died in the same apartment at the same age of thirty two Singer Harry Nilsson I love. That's my alarm. Every morning I wake up to his song. GotTa get out okay. If you've seen the show Russian dolls you'll know why I wake up to a song every day but He renounced his London flat to friends when he was traveling. And so on June twenty ninth nineteen seventy four Mama Cass of the Mamas. And the Papas was staying in the flat while she was on tour and died of heart failure in her sleep and on September seventh. Nineteen seventy eight Keith. Moon of the WHO overdosed on a sedative in that very same apartment which is eerie because they died in the same apartment under the same landlord at the same age. How crazy is that? That's a little

Ethics and Responsibility in the Jewelry Industry

"I have a fun fact. Did you know that between the two holidays? Valentine's Day and Mother's DAY CASS. American spent get this on average a staggering ten billion dollars every year on jewelry. Not Surprising. And that's just those two holidays alone. That's not including you know the winter holidays including birthdays anniversaries or engagements. That's only on Valentine's Day and Mother's Day which is incredible. I had no idea. Yeah me neither. And that's actually just a small fraction of the three hundred billion dollars exchanged globally from the mining of approximately ninety million carats of rough diamonds and sixteen hundred tons of gold every single year. And of course with that colossal sum of money on the line well. Human Nature can and does falter sadly succumbing sometimes to unbridled greed and avarice often quite literally on the backs of others. How many of us have really truly considered the true cost of our jewelry. I mean we may very well recall the price that we paid for it. But what about this other price? The human and environmental cost cast in twenty eighteen activists organization. Human Rights Watch published a study which is called the hidden cost of jewelry and it highlights some really heartbreaking egregious instances of human rights abuses and environmental tragedies stemming from unscrupulous mining operations such as when in two thousand eight members of this and Bob Way military staged a bloody takeover of the diamond fields and the country's Murang`a district and they slaughtered some two hundred civilian miners for the next six years. Certain factors of the government's armed forces military and police oversaw a brutal and ruthless program of torture and forced labor including forced child labor and their class to pilfer the diamond fields in two thousand eleven. Human Rights Watch documented a pervasive program of sexual violence against workers at the hands of the private security company hired to protect the Tara Mine in Papua New Guinea. While Canadian Gold Mining Company began mining operations in the Maroteaux district of northern Uganda without even notifying or securing the necessary rights or permissions from the indigenous Karamojong community. The grim reality is that gold around your neck. The silver on your wrist the platinum on your finger or the gems in your ears may very well have come for one of these mines or others like them but do not despair dress listeners. Because today we're going to bring you an episode which hopefully informs and educates you about some of these issues that are going on in the jewelry industry and we hope to shut a light on the ever growing movement to write these wrongs and also to institute responsibility and transparency all along the supply chain in the Jewelry Industry today. We are joined by jewelry designer educator and activist. Bliss Lau to talk about ethics and responsibility in the jewelry trade and what we as a consumer can do to effect change. Bless all welcome to the show bliss. Welcome to the show thanks I'm happy to be here. Yeah we're so excited to talk about Jewelry Today. But before we delve into what? I think will be some rather surprising subject matter for a lot of our listeners. I'm hoping that you can tell us a little bit about your own background. And how did you become a jewelry designer and specifically when did you begin zeroing in on some of the problems in the jewelry industry that we're going to cover today sure I? I went to Parsons as a studied fashion design and then I actually started off as a handbag designer and I did that for several years and I used to have this handbag that had the chains down the front of it that looked like the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge and at some point because I studied fashion design. I kind of was procrastinating. And for fun I made myself a body chain with a chain that had used on my handbags and it became like a huge explosive interest in the industry. Basically like what we would call viral. Now that was actually I was viral and it was the first time I ever heard the word was when it went. Viral eventually made myself actually. My first ring was a ring called the kaleidoscope bring which is still in my collection and because I studied apparel I wanted to make a ring that referenced apparel in the sense of when you get dressed you get up every day. It's a form of identity so you choose to put on your shirt and your jacket and your outfit and is who you are and when I wanted to enter into jewelry space. I didn't want to create something. That was an imposition on your body. I wanted to create something that in that same way would give you choice. The kaleidoscope ring is one ring made a four pieces so every single day. You can choose to wear it differently and it can evoke personality. That's what I love about it. I actually am mostly a bespoke bridal designer now and I have moved into fine jewelry in around twenty fourteen and I did that because it wasn't really a plan My now husband proposed to me with a sketchbook and asked me to design my own rang and it was actually at the Metropolitan Museum at the Alexander McQueen show Oh lovely because he knows I love fashion and it was the first experience that I had in picking out a gemstone and thinking about fine jewelry and then learning about fine jewelry and eventually I stopped making costume jewelry and just fully dove into making fine jewelry and bespoke bridal so we know each other quite well so I know your work quite well. You have been struggling a lot personally with some of the ethics within the jewelry industry and this is like one of the new major directions of your work. So when did you first start becoming aware that there were problems? I mean all of us we. Everyone knows that there are certain issues when it comes to gold and diamonds and things like that but it feels like a really big idea and when it's a really big idea it doesn't feel like you can do anything and one of the things that I love about. The jewelry industry is that your industry is essentially made up of a millions and millions of independent small businesses myself included. And when I started one of the things that I did that really made me realize that I could make an impact with my design and also simultaneously made me realize how challenging it can be was

Don't Look At The Wall

Don't Look At The Wall

"The original cars movie released in two thousand six which was also the year. Our Son was born at the time. Our girls were toddlers and I had three young nephews so we watched a lot of cars the cartoon version. This is what I'm saying with mater and DOC Hudson and radiator springs and of course lightning McQueen that all the kids called lightning the queen because of course they did about a month ago John and Lugar Son and I watched that movie and I guess I haven't seen it in a decade or so because every single song took me back to win. The kids were tiny and nobody slept through the night and it felt like. I was making chicken nuggets and applesauce for every lunch and dinner. Probably because I was my days of watching cartoon cars may have passed. But I'm still happy to listen to the sage advice of one real life race car. Driver named Mario Andretti who has been famously quoted over the years as having given some excellent racing advice that also seems to apply to life. He said don't look at the wall. Your car goes where your eyes go I. I saw this quote after about a week long bout of wrestling with some questions in discouragement. In my work yes. Y'All hi. It's me. Emily talking about my work. Mindset again seriously though. The simple racing advice really stuck with me during a week where I was questioning everything from the decor of my Home Office where I was literally looking at the walls to a more metaphorical wall gazing as I questioned the direction of my work at the time. This was actually just a few months ago. This happens every now and then for me sometimes on a more extreme level than normal. But I'll share. This particular season of looking at the wall has looked like for me. Now I would Mario Andretti said. Don't look at the wall. He said in the obviously of racing. Because your car goes where your eyes go of course if we want to more. Broadly apply that clever statement to life. The Wall could represent any number of things options. Distractions trouble you name it. I'm not saying we're never to consider our options to change course to be aware of obstacles or trouble that might come up as we make our decisions about our life and our work. Hello this is episode. One seventeen of an entire podcast about making decisions and I'm constantly. I feel like talking about perspectives weighing the options and seeing all sides of things. Of course that's important but I will say sometimes we can get so busy looking at the wall that we spend all our time there and we forget where we're actually going and why were on the road in the first place like the mom who's so worried about all the things that could go wrong when her baby goes off to kindergarten or starts driving a car or goes off to college that she forgets to be a person to take a walk to eat good food and laugh at the table and enjoy each parenting stage as it comes or like the employees who desperately wants to impress her boss or outperform. Her Co workers that she loses all joy in the work. She was once excited to show up for every single day or like the writer who becomes overwhelmed by what other writers are doing. And how they're doing it that she doesn't make the time to actually write the words that make her come alive. That will serve a reader. Well an usher light and hope into the world around her like the citizen whose so completely frustrated with the state of the world of politics that she feels powerless toward any change at all rather than seeing the small things that are hers to do and using her unique voice to make way for justice in her church her neighborhood and her city and like me. I feel like I've said this before but keep learning it on different levels so I'm gonNA share just a little bit of my own wall gazing story with you now and maybe by the end of it you'll consider yours for years years. It's all you. I have felt out of place in the stage culture. That many in my industries seem to inhabit so comfortably. Listen I don't even know if that's the right way to say that. But please forgive my lack of Separating over the perfect description right now I've got a point to make. It's not that I think it's wrong. To stand on. Stage is for real. It's so needed it's important. It is a unique calling that I respect. I just don't think it's my unique calling at least not fully and becoming more and more convinced that speaking to giant crowds from a large stage doesn't seem like the place where my most valuable contribution is offered. And this might seem like not big deal to you but for me. This has always been tension that I've held. The question has been for me. What does it look like to be an author who doesn't travel and speak on stages? This question is valid and it's important but if I let it it can become my own version of looking at the wall because instead of looking at what my work is I slowly begin to define it by what it isn't and eventually becomes a heavy burden to bear. Your car goes where your eyes go in so for the past several years. I've been learning. What does it look like to keep my eyes on the road and I've been living into the answer granted years ago at I? It honestly looked like saying yes to lots of travel and to speaking and never feeling fully like myself in that and after that it felt like saying no to most of the speaking but then kind of wondering if I was doing it wrong. I'll be honest these days. It looks like a few different things. For example it looks like hope. Writers is still does look like that serving writers online from the comfort of my own home leading in the ways that I know how stumbling through it doing it well sometimes in being really excited and then not doing it so well other times and learning as I go it also looks like saying yes when my friend tissue box and writer invited me to Co lead literary London with her one of my favorite trips ever this year. GonNa take our third group this summer to that trip which is currently full by the way next year. It's GonNa look like being a lecturer for the masters in Spiritual Formation Residency Program at Friends University. By the way if you want to hear more about that you can listen to episode one hundred where I tell the whole story and this week as this episode airs. I'm in southern California. Quietly CO leading twenty-eight hope writers through a year long mastermind cohort that we've designed especially specifically for them so I give those examples not really to tell you what I'm up to lately but just to offer some embodied real life versions of what this has looked like for me in my work to quit looking at the wall and instead keep my eyes on the road already. Don't look at. The Wall is becoming for me. A kind next right thing. Mantra and remember Mario's advice was about racing. Assuming you're travelling at fast speed and if there was ever a metaphor for the pace of our lives right now maybe a race car comes pretty close. You keep your eyes on your intended path if you want this to go well. It might be tempting to catalog all that could go wrong or all. That is wrong but it's more dangerous actually to look at the wall than it is to simply keep your eyes on the road and so this quote found me right on time at the end of last year and I'm so grateful for it. Maybe it's finding you today at the right time as well. If you're having one of those days weeks months or let's face it decades. What would it look like for you to make like a race car driver and keep your eyes on the road? What are the walls in your own work right now? What about in your relationships are their walls in the places where you volunteer where you give your time or your money. What are the walls you're facing today? Are you able to name them? Are you willing to turn your eyes of from them and focus on the road ahead? This is your invitation to stop looking at that wall and simply do your next right thing in love.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's formal step-down from royal duties is set for March 31

"The decision by Prince Harry and his wife. Megan Donncha Sussex formerly Meghan Markle to step back from Britain's royal family now a date attached to it. The couple will officially begin their new life on March. Thirty first they will live in Canada the hoop to retain the title Sussex Royal for their new ventures. It will no longer be allowed to use the honorific royal. So now they have to scrub royal from there at Sussex Royal Instagram page with its over eleven million followers and from their website Sussex Royal Dot com where they sensationally announced. They were stepping back from official duties earlier this year. Prince Harry's marriage to Meghan in two thousand eighteen seemed to herald a change in Britain's royal tradition. Megan was American an actress and women of color but press attention. The New Duchess of Sussex quickly turned ugly and at times racist in a candidate interview last year. Meghan to the pressure had gotten to her. You add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed. It's It's a very real thing to be going. Through behind the scenes to navigate the palace injury. We turn to Max Foster. Cnn's royals correspondent. He's our guest today. Max Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you sir. I want to start with the beginning with a couple when they were introduced to the British public. How were they perceived as a couple every was gripped by this story already because we all knew that? Harry has found someone and the story gradually leaked and then we started with the official sort of nobody there they had a photo opportunity Kensington Palace at your went down to and There were received with joy. I would say Harry is very often perceived as the most popular member of the British Royal Family at a lot of goodwill towards him. He's defined by that moment when he walked behind his mother's coffin every wanted him to be happy and there was this very modern woman hit net which opened up the royal brand probably too much wider audience. She was a slightly older woman who had had a career had been divorced and also was biracial. A lot of people in this country. If I'm frank early on the conversation was while she looks white but obviously then we saw images of mother and she started identify very much as a black woman so that became a big part of the story and that brought in a much wider world as well. I mean the British Royal Family in many people's eyes is seen as the ultimate white institution and in a way should broken that and I think both inside. And outside the institution that was seen as a very good thing because anti-monarchy needs to remain relevant in east harbor wide appeal and she heard singlehandedly widened. It by being who she was. But Max while there may have been a sense of her opening up the modern K. There also was a racist response. Yes so one of the early investigations on this. We teamed UP WITH SOME DATA SCIENTISTS. Who a very strong on racial abuse online their expertise and we did look quite deeply into this and there was a lot of racist abuse online and sort of things. I could never repeat and we try to get to the bottom of this because Ozzy. Harry's issue is always being the tabloids in the UK and what we identified was some undoubted sexism and I'd say probably xenophobia towards her anti-americanism. Some classes comments frowning comments on her way and the way this sort of came to the tabloids initially was some sexist narratives around etiquette so if Kate for example wore off the shoulder dress you'd be described regal. Princess was Megan did it. She'd be breaking protocol. There was this classic story where she had black nail varnish dark nail varnish remember she was Breaking Protocol Austin follow it up and which I thought was ridiculous. Yes I did and of course. There's no protocol a nail varnish in the royal family but a lot of the sort of negativity towards her was around protocol and I think that was quite loaded when you looked online a lot of these narratives were picked up by racists we. It was very hard to identify who the trolls were online. How many there were even. But they're very powerful. There were some very sort of tenuous links to white supremacy some links to the United States groups as well but this was a small part of it I think. Actually a lot of the discrimination was sort of snobbery it was sexist and often that was interpreted as racist as well. I remember when I was reporting on our survey. We interview caught a prominent biracial journalist. Here and she said is a particular issue. Someone who's biracial because they never feel like they fit in and this for Meghan would have been very painful because she's been criticized on so many levels what people outside monarchy will never understand. I don't understand it. Pretty unsettled more than most operate within the system. Is that when you Marietta? Monarchy you give up fundamental human rights the freedom to move around the freedom to vote the freedom to express yourself. You can't express yourself. You can't expressing a political opinion or support a political party because that would compromise the head of state. He's meant to be independent and have cross party support. Macon couldn't express any of her truly felt opinions. I think it's really massive sacrifice to take that role and I. You know a work very closely with William and Charles McQueen in particular and I actually really respect for the way. They've made those sacrifices and they do do it for the roles duty above self all the time. There's a point where Prince Harry actually has a bit of a breaking point with tablets doesn't he? He's had it several times before and after occasion as well. Hari is deeply scarred by his upbringing. If you look back at some of the images Diana you'll see her going up to cameras pushing them away from the kids that didn't have the protections they have now that walk down the street have talk of his all around them. And Harry spoken openly as has William about how they would have to comfort their mother because of the sort of media pressure shoes under and there was lack of sympathy as well because she caught it the media. He's deeply scarred by that. And recently he spoke to it and told them that every time he hears a camera flash or click. He's reminded of his mother's death. They literally blame the Paparazzi specifically for the death of their mother. This is something that's deeply entrenched in Harry Psyche. And it's a mental health issue for talked about that and he hasn't a resolved it so that's where that comes from with him. I was also in Afghanistan with him. I didn't do the interview. It didn't interview. They're talking about how this is pre Meghan. How he never expected to meet a woman who would be able to take on this pressure and I think he eventually felt we couldn't protect Meghan and that's why we came to the ultimate meltdown. Later on before we get to the mountain. No let's spend another moment on Princess Diana obviously in a strange way there are a fair number of parallels with that. You know famously. Storybook wedding watched by I. Think three quarters of a million people around the world or more than that and then that's very very very public dissolution of the marriage and ultimately an extremely public and painful death talk to us a little bit about her legacy and how that plays a role here. Well there's a couple of parallels the media pressure the media intrusion the fact that Dina was the biggest star in the World Megan's not far off flat as a couple they. Certainly I would say. Probably the biggest celebrity couple in the world globally having traveled with them not just in the UK or the US. That's one pressure. The pressure is an internal pressure. I had a story last year which caused real ructions behind palace walls and some very close to the couple talked about the couple not feeling supported by the rest of the institution. I e. the family feeling that they had single-handedly modernized the monarchy and that wasn't valued and that's exactly the sort of language that Diana spoke of as well how the institution was working against her. So I think that's the clear parallel between Meghan and Diana. And if you see some instagram posts. She speaks warmly. She also identifies with Diana. What about their desire for privacy? I watched their original BBC interview around the engagement and they talked about how at the beginning of their relationship. They sort of had five months before they were fully noticed and even their honeymoon. You mentioned how Diana was hounded by the press But obviously we're in an era where forces of social media invade every single space in almost all of our lives. Let alone the royals. How does privacy play a role for this? They were very lucky to stay under wire for that period of time and then eventually it came out in a British newspaper and they wanted to just get to know each other before that onslaught Harry was so aware the pressure that she would come under as soon as she became public and they came out as a couple but he just wanted to give her time to get to know him and presumably define the way they would carry out their public roles to hurry. He absolutely believes he has a right to a private life. And the tension blew up for example around Archie Christenings He received public money to renovate his cottage in Windsor couple of million pounds or so that was seen as taxpayers money and the tabloids. The British media felt that in return for public money. You are a public figure. Therefore you need to allow some access to your life and traditionally that would allow me in pictures at the baby's Christening because the baby is a public figure as well. Harry Mega fundamentally disagreed with that. They felt that they had a right to a private christening. And that's where the tension really fed up between the British newspapers and the couple and that's just the difference they couldn't resolve. They felt they had a right to private life and some in the media felt they did so. Was there a break with the public? Let's say after the birth of the baby archie. I don't know you whether the public has lost faith in them. Necessarily I think it's quite divided. Actually I think the line if if it was crossed for the couple was when they eventually came out and said they wanted different roles and they published a statement and they published a website and transpired that the queen had asked them not to. And they're done so anyway. I think for a lot of British people. That's crossing the line because she's the most revered figure in the country and she seen as a female icon as well more so than Meghan so that was a line that was crossed for the public. Perhaps the have got a huge amount of support particularly amongst young people. I know that America has a huge amount of support. A lot of people cheer her for the way she challenging the institution and refuses to compromise on any values and beliefs and the way she wants to live her life at the same time. There are those that feel that she doesn't have enough reverence for the system and she should have been more clear about her role and how she should fit in before she signed up to marriage and that sounds a bit harsh but ultimately monarchy is built on a hierarchy a hierarchy which is built on the line of succession. So it's the Queen Charles William and George if that breaks then the whole system collapses so never gonNa have a situation where Megan Harry would be on a par with William and Kate. It's just never going to happen because the system breaks down. You can modernize as much as you like. But you can't modernize that element of it. And this idea that she wasn't valued properly. I think for many within the institution many Traditionis is actually her misinterpreting. The reality is that she will always have to walk behind Kate. And William because that's the system really interesting. That's actually something I think. Most Americans it's harder for Americans particularly interrupt their minds around but just to keep us on the narrative briefly. They have the storybook wedding that go in a honeymoon. She announces a pregnancy relatively early Within five months of the wedding they have this beautiful baby and then they go on a trip to Africa. And it's there. They bring along a journalist. Tom Brand and they give them quite an intimate interview. Can you tell us a bit about that? I was there. I interviewed him earlier on as well. In theory it was about the tour and the causes but it became much more personal than that and a couple of moments. Really stand out. One was where Harry talked. He didn't talk about a rift with William but he did respond to a question about a rift with William where he said that they were on different Paul's which was the first public acknowledgement of a difference.

Harry and Meghan are moving to Canada. What does this mean for everything?

"Well it's official. Royal couple will be moving to Canada. Prince Harry and Meghan dropped a royal bombshell last week. The couple took to social media to announce their stepping back from senior royal duties. The Palace wasn't impressed in the queen called an emergency crisis meeting to figure out next steps ups of a Queen calling the discussions constructive adding she supportive of Harry and Megan's desire to be a young independent family. She also confirmed that Harry and Meghan again. We'll be living in Canada. This as you'll hear from our guest today is huge. Half in half out. It's never been done before. So what's what's behind the move. What are Harry Megan's plans for their time in Canada? What does this mean for their future? And what does this mean for the future of the monarchy and I'm Claire Broussard. In for Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the Big Story Patricia Treble double of royalty dot com is the royal contributor for Maclean's I patricia locally. So tell me about the moments that set all of this In motion the big announcement. Well the big announcement came on the eighth of January It was after six o'clock London time so all the palace officials officials that everyone had gone home right. They were or leaving or they're in transit and Harry and Meghan sent out what they called a personal message using the work medications patients so I got an email like all other royal reporters who are on that system. They also put it on their instagram account. And everything like that and basically saying they are stepping away from their roles as senior royals which came as a bit of a surprise to a lot of people because further reporting shows that while the he baby talking about reimagining their roles and changing the roles and maybe kind of stepping back from some duties the Queen had very explicitly said to Harry. Please don't do anything public until we settled this out. And they went ahead and by all accounts gave his brother Prince William and his father Prince Charles ten minutes notice so it was a done deal so they have basically basically launch themselves into the great known royal wise and I mean you follow royals for a living. What was your first reaction? My first reaction was in my jaw dropped and I picked it up ice. I forward that email onto my editors with Eight engine like you know those those red fire engines a survey. This is huge breaking news breaking news. It was jaw dropping because it was. It is so unusual You know we've not ever moved. Never had a senior royal stepping away from their duties like this before and it was also very personal for royal watchers. We could kind of see this coming. We knew that there was a change calming and it wasn't just with them taking six weeks off at the end of last year. It was even before that if you go back you know to the previous months when they were in southern Africa and they gave that incredibly emotional Raw interview to documentary. Puerta who's one one of their friends. Tim Bradley Tom Brady. And they talked about how Harry talked about how he basically really doesn't like the press at all. I mean every click reminds him if a mother And if you looked at Meghan you know she was clearly under pressure. She was struggling in the role and she kept talking about how it it wasn't enough to just survive. You have to thrive as you knew there was going to be a change and even then if you would go even further back though there these little telltale signs and one of the big ones for royal watchers when you Kinda look at it is in the sound so simple you know or not even obvious but it's that they have not gone to Balmoral which is the summer vacation spot of the Queen? The queen goes up there for a few months every year Late summer early autumn and all her family come visit in the years to come for about a week the roll through. You know it's not like everyone comes for the same week and they roll through and they go hiking and they do all sorts of stuff and she loves having her family around her. I mean it's the same like at Christmas. She likes to have her extended family gathering together. You know she's ninety-three she's always done. This is very much her thing and for the last two years. They begged off by immoral. They have not gone. And that's kind of one of those little signs that all was not well. That all was not settling in as well as everyone had hoped she would. So what was the reaction from Buckingham Palace. The reaction from Buckingham Palace was astonishing. Because about two hours later there was this to sentence sentence. Missive that basically said Oh cut cut cut cut cut through all the the the niceties like. Oh Oh my oh. Oh my my We need to think about this. This is all really complicated. Oh my basically that's what it is and you could see that. They were clearly caught off guard and they are making no bones about the fact that they were caught off guard by what Harry. Megan did and it wasn't just the message alone. You know saying you know. They want a balance you know their their time. Between the United Kingdom in North America they want a balanced their their private life their family life with duty you know and they kept talking about how they want to clam rate with the Queen and honor our duty to McQueen McConnell and everything like that but it was at the same time. They launched a website Sussex and that's their brain and it was the Sussex Royal Dot Com. If you you looked at it it was all loaded with this incredibly sophisticated website with all their thoughts about the financing. How they're going to finance themselves? They're talking about financial independence and and it talks about the Commonwealth. Every like that so this was not a sun thing. This was not just ended. This was planned. They had been working on this for a very very longtime and why exactly they lost. Shit this point likely because You know his thoughts you know his preliminary thoughts about the spending more time in Canada or spending more time away had made the press There was a story in the sun the day before and they just thought. Let's just go for it but they didn't tell. Oh Granny Yeah and speaking of the press. We've seen so many examples lately of different headlines for Kate and Megan. I mean there's time they're doing both the exact same thing at the headlines ends for. Kate can be positive and cheery and the headlines for Meghan can sometimes be pretty nasty What is that all about? Do you think that could be behind Harry and Megan's decision to leave so I've talked about this and I actually. I went into a certain depth. I got a backup to say that The tabloids in Britain The present Britain is just a whole whole different beast from what we're used to. I mean you must understand that And the other thing is you've got this differentiation between the print side and the online side right there that you don't have here so it's a again a very different beast and so if you're looking at something like Daily Mail they will take a story and they will slice it fifty eight ways to Sunday And they'll have fifty eight little stories and all with click bait headlines and stuff like that because that's what they're doing they they want you to click on the article. They want you to read the article. So the more extreme stream the headline the more the more they can talk and spin something they will do it and that is it standard over there and so what what happens is unfortunately making his the first person to marry into the raw family in the social media world and in the first world of this new type of journalism this online you know take tiny little snippet like there was a snippet about a Canadian billionaire. Somebody reported Canadian. Billionaire was the one who loans them his his his house in Vancouver island instantly. That story was everywhere they did all this thing about. Here's this guy. Here's his relationship to Clinton did a and then he goes on twitter and goes no. Oh that's I don't have a house here. I have no communications. This is completely false but by then that story everywhere and unfortunately what happens. Is You get these stories. So you'll get you know. Kate looks fabulous and green. Megan looks pattern green. But then you'll get. Kit Looks Fabulous in Green. Kate looks bad and green. Kate looks good white. Why is Kate wearing white again? You got these stories endlessly and the issue is that what a lot of people in you know when you become famous one of the first things everyone advises. You don't don't read the press. Yeah don't read the press. There is so much bad. Press out there and it is talked and often it is wrong and often it is inflamed and we're not talking the mainstream media. We're not talking the royal correspondence and things like that. We're talking about just the just the amorphous stuff that you everyone finds online and it's clear that they are reading the press and they're getting more upset and I would be because a lot of the stuff is they'll take a little nugget of information and spin it but at the same time they were getting upset about things that approve true. So Harry a Meghan. Were really upset about that. They were splitting from William and Kate and forming their own charity. That turned out to be true. They were upset because you know there were reports that make an Harry. Were churning through staff. That was true that they were that they were leaving. The Kensington Palace compound. That was true. You you know that. They jetted off repeatedly on private jets in the middle of summer while also talking up environmental causes. That's true so you know you're putting yourself in the public. I you have to expect criticism. Some of it is going to be unbelievably wrong and some of it is going to be legitimate. And it's a matter of balancing that out. What what does it mean really to step away from the family like officially will Harry still be Prince and Megan still be a duchess who the heck no really really? We don't even know this is this. Is this the mystery. We don't really know what this is GonNa mean what the few their future is. But you can make you could start to finding the tea. Leaves parsing royal statements is an art form. That a lot of us a figured out. Okay and so if you look at the statement after everyone met at Sandringham to talk about this The Queen issued a statement on January thirteenth. And it she talked about how it was incredibly emotional It was a very personal message. The Queen does not do you. Emotion like this not in public right Not Her thing. Form a woman formal generation. This is simply not. It is not for her to do it for other the generations to do. You'll get Charles everyone. Hugging people not going But if you look at it she she you she talks about Harry and Meghan. You know she doesn't talk about conductress Sussex. She talks about family eight times and she says that they will quote remain a valued part of my family But it's clear she says we. We wanted them to say fulltime royal working. They're not going to valued member of my family. I think what that means is that they are. They're not going to be doing official duties. I think that that is pretty much sending out the signal that if they want to go into commercial ventures which it looks as though they do to take the Sussex Royal brand global all that is simply incompatible with royal duties. Because you've got that conflict of interest because are you doing something because somebody's paying you to do it or you doing something something. Because you're supporting the crown and remember official royal duties and those are the ones that are in the court circular. You're doing this in support of the monarch and the monarchy. You're not doing it for yourself. It is very much support of her. You're aiding her so I think they're going to be all out but there are still her

This is completely false but by then that story everywhere and unfortunately what happens. Is You get these stories. So you'll get you know. Kate looks fabulous and green. Megan looks pattern green. But then you'll get. Kit Looks Fabulous in Green. Kate looks bad and green. Kate looks good white. Why is Kate wearing white again? You got these stories endlessly and the issue is that what a lot of people in you know when you become famous one of the first things everyone advises. You don't don't read the press. Yeah don't read the press. There is so much bad. Press out there and it is talked and often it is wrong and often it is inflamed and we're not talking the mainstream media. We're not talking the royal correspondence and things like that. We're talking about just the just the amorphous stuff that you everyone finds online and it's clear that they are reading the press and they're getting more upset and I would be because a lot of the stuff is they'll take a little nugget of information and spin it but at the same time they were getting upset about things that approve true. So Harry a Meghan. Were really upset about that. They were splitting from William and Kate and forming their own charity. That turned out to be true. They were upset because you know there were reports that make an Harry. Were churning through staff. That was true that they were that they were leaving. The Kensington Palace compound. That was true. You you know that. They jetted off repeatedly on private jets in the middle of summer while also talking up environmental causes. That's true so you know you're putting yourself in the public. I you have to expect criticism. Some of it is going to be unbelievably wrong and some of it is going to be legitimate. And it's a matter of balancing that out. What what does it mean really to step away from the family like officially will Harry still be Prince and Megan still be a duchess who the heck no really really? We don't even know this is this. Is this the mystery. We don't really know what this is GonNa mean what the few their future is. But you can make you could start to finding the tea. Leaves parsing royal statements is an art form. That a lot of us a figured out. Okay and so if you look at the statement after everyone met at Sandringham to talk about this The Queen issued a statement on January thirteenth. And it she talked about how it was incredibly emotional It was a very personal message. The Queen does not do you. Emotion like this not in public right Not Her thing. Form a woman formal generation. This is simply not. It is not for her to do it for other the generations to do. You'll get Charles everyone. Hugging people not going But if you look at it she she you she talks about Harry and Meghan. You know she doesn't talk about conductress Sussex. She talks about family eight times and she says that they will quote remain a valued part of my family But it's clear she says we. We wanted them to say fulltime royal working. They're not going to valued member of my family. I think what that means is that they are. They're not going to be doing official duties. I think that that is pretty much sending out the signal that if they want to go into commercial ventures which it looks as though they do to take the Sussex Royal brand global all that is simply incompatible with royal duties. Because you've got that conflict of interest because are you doing something because somebody's paying you to do it or you doing something something. Because you're supporting the crown and remember official royal duties and those are the ones that are in the court circular. You're doing this in support of the monarch and the monarchy. You're not doing it for yourself. It is very much support of her. You're aiding her so I think they're going to be all out but there are still her

This 8-Year-Old Makes $26M A Year From YouTube - Here's What You Can Learn

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I've Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about how this eight year year old kid makes twenty six million dollars a year from Youtube at what you can learn from it so neil. Have you heard a story. Do you know who this is. I do Ryan's rolled all right. Yeah His name is Ryan Guan and then yeah rides. World is officially his channel. Do you WanNa tell vote about it. Yes so you know. It's not just a kit. His parents are bawling because the parents are keeping the money. Sucks for Ryan when you get older. Hopefully your parents take care of. You seem like nice pair or you. Listen to mark is good. You learn how to get out out of that. That's right although I think it's good that a kid doesn't get twenty six million and the parents can agree and probably saving yet in doing good things on his behalf. Ford released an article breaking down the top Youtube influencers in how much they're making and Ryan was at the top. It used to be Ryan. You know video video recording youtube videos of him looking at toys now. It's much more than that. But in essence is channel appeals to kids and he makes twenty six million dollars. There's a year so good for you Ryan. Yeah just to give a little more context in terms of what you can learn. I think Going into it to rides world is a channel used to be rides toy review. And I. I was watching some of the videos. And there's like a giant Lightning McQueen bar a ball from disease cars and so basically the idea. The deal was actually conceived from Ryan's mother who came up with the idea after watching videos by another youtuber named Evan Tube. HD He basically reviews products too. But you know she decided to basically put a spin on it so oftentimes. What you think about doing something to do is draw some racial somewhere else and then combined into experience that that you have at it becomes something? That's very novel. The the best part about this is like look anyone can make money. My buddies and I were joking around at least my buddies who have kids and we were joking around like mad. Our children just causes money. It's time to make some money from them now. We're just joking as I mentioned look. Youtube is really powerful. And this just shows you why need to be on it you know. A lot of people are like Oh tech talk snapchat. It's all younger demographics. There's not any money in there. Where Ryan's Ryan's making a ton of money you know going after young kids and people who are a much younger audience than most would ever market too so it just shows that there's potential hamshaw almost all audiences because eventually all these audiences will end up with credit cards? It will end up purchasing an Yoon if they're too young and they don't have credit cards their parents for purchase for them. So don't be afraid to just go out there and go and try to do something even if other people are hating on at telling you it's not possible both telling you there's no money in it. Hey if there's a big market a ton of people the money will eventually fall. I think there's some other lessons from this too because what I what I look at the video so it's not like it's particularly well done. I mean it shirts a good video but it's not great. It's not something that really stands out. So what really sticks out is rides got his own little quirky personality as a kid. I think Gras Corky they also stay very consistent with the publishing schedule to know exactly where you're going to get from from that channel. which is why I mean? Twenty two point nine million subscribers share his. You know that the hurts though what they're doing and they've also you know you can also learn from from rides world is sure it like. Let's say you God bless you if you have a kid. That's helping you do well. But they've learned to also diverse fighter the income that they're getting they look. Look at the Post that I think it was written by not forced maybe it is Forbes but basically they own a couple of properties in this area you know they take care of their parents of the diversified investments. And they'll put all their eggs in one basket. So that's another lesson that you can learn and the other thing I want to call out if I turn back over to deal is if you look at number one. Earner it's Ryan Ryan Kanji and number two is perfect. Now do perfect. is they do their production quality or the bout of work that they have to put it to practice are actually way crazier because they're logic basketball's out of like helicopters or roofs tops. The buildings are really crazy. AIDS ad they earn twenty million bucks in kind of a twenty nineteen and then at third place was actually another child. Who who is only five years old and I believe she's Russian as you're eighteen million dollar

"And they have a way to get out of it. And it's the death that their husbands left them with. Hey, their husbands all died. It's called a widow. So we all know that. Just call with that we cool, of course. Widows husbands died. Ironically, the only ones stopping you. And I thought I bought the the whole premise where like, you know, they're in a tough spot, and they're going to do all they can to get it wasn't like a male macho either it was done with a feminine touch. Even though is a male director who did it. And I think it is the year the woman, and I think that this has a giant bull's eye on it as far as like, hey, we can check this box by nominated for best picture. I could see getting a nomination for that picture. Yeah. I could see that. And it's Steve McQueen A. And you're right. However, here's some things that really don't work for me. Okay. Number one, the camera work as good as it was at times it was distracting, and it was indulgent often showy it was very showy and it. Distracted like me. Oh, look these two mirrors. If we sit them in this, and this seating different parts of the restaurant at a look they're staring each other distractive showing need for that. There's also it felt a lot like I didn't know is going in. But I assumed walking out that it was based on a book because there's a lot of license to a lot of things happened in movies that are based on books, and I have this thing where I don't think many movies that I like are actually come from books. Even though my favorite of all time, but books work on their own level. Do their own thing. There's a number of things that happened in this movie widows a'dog, happens a an architect boyfriend or client happens little things seem random, but they need to be in there for the story to work and that works fine in a book like long form hundred pages it works. But in a movie, it's like oh. Well, that's just kind of like how convenient right? I ain't walking out of this must be based in a book. Just by the sheer volume of characters, but it was not it's based on a mini series a British miniseries. It was released in nineteen Eighty-three that runs five hours long called widows and Steve mcqueen's British Miami born and raised and obviously it had an impact on them. And this is his his his his passion project. He's wanted to make this for a long time. Now, this is the most fun Steve mcqueen's ever had the same because I was gonna say he's never really had any fun on the big fun. Not that fun. But I like the characters I liked the female empowerment being it didn't feel like I a quick reboot. You know, very little of this felt bad or offensive to me. It was just like like all along. I think it's gonna be a serious versions of oceans eight. And I think that's probably the closest thing that it is. I'll put put right. It's a super dramatic oceans eight, but how much are we gonna talk about how we have to talk about some of the we have to talk about spoilers. Yeah. And I would also like to talk about the absurd audience. That was with that. Because I wanna hear I need need to clear up some plot points that I've been thinking about I'm like, wait, why did this happen? And why did this character this? All right. We'll do that with the patriot. And if your patron a thank you very much for.

"Ask is that all of your other foams, your credit as as either a or the writer, and my sense is that you are very involved every step of the way. So I just want does that mean that there was a Steve McQueen version of the script that existed along the way, I think, you know, the fact that ice came up the idea I found a script to get my wife. I says it all really I don't think any deep shore back with fast bender again working the sign with Brad Pitt also as a producer on a film with a bigger budget than either of the two prior. But for a lot of people the person who the actor who stole the show was a then virtual unknown name lupita young, oh who went onto win the best boarding actress, Oscar and became a movie star through that movie. Where did you discover her and what convinced you that? She was right for that part. I just thought she was absolutely amazing long long search for back character, and it was similar to sort of looking scholar. Oh HARA as opposed to because it was very difficult to that character. Middle of a sudden frenzy mazes amazing cost to the semi this. This this tape, and it was two women. She sent me to tapes up, and then one of them was lupita. And that was that was the know showed my wife show my daughter, and that was that was in was that shoot overall. I mean, I'm thinking about what lupita character alone indoors in that movie. It's pretty brutal and emotionally very rough. The whole storyline is is devastating. So I wonder though, for you guys is that the kind of thing while you were making it that you are able to sort of turn the emotions on and off like what happens when you say cut on twelve years, a slave. It's that simple. I think any movie it's just that movie. It's it's not to break out the biz and you going to be sensitive to that to that environment and respectful, and you know, it's something it's not so..

"From from what part of the world Grenada entering listen this, and how did you end up with the name? Steve mcqueen. I'm sure you get this probably everyday, but I'm curious loss Dame's McQueen, and I was born I sixty nine I imagine. It was the the year of bullet. My mother told me that the the nice skip including me, Steve. And Steve Steve's Steve, Steve, it's not Not an. an. So what sort of childhood, would you say you had was happy was it difficult. I know that one thing you told my colleague, Steven Galloway recently was that you always felt you underestimated. So I just wondered who was underestimating you and why? Fantastic yet. It was a wonderful job of tastic child into the great time. And again, we assume point we lived in inner cities, and my mother moved us to healing, which was fantastic swimming in the suburbs. So he came out of the cities area. And then we always talks and stuff and places to sort of play into base today dream, and you know, like, I left my, you know, my mother's house. My father's house in the morning came back in the afternoon and evening, rather. It was wonderful. That was a great job of the situation dyslexia. And again, it's one of those things where that any stage in my life wanted. No, people weren't depending on what kind of background you come from sort of how they pay attention to. And I think through who I was at the just to put me to one side rather than to find out what it was and help in a real way. So over the point I thought. Of myself as not being bright. But then I realized that some point just myself. I was so it's one of those things you know, that was the situation of children in London point. There was actually a people going around in the seventies about the western children. I think it was a late sixties seventies about them being intellectually sort of having the capacity as other children. This is true. This is actually true. Yes. It was true. And so therefore, you know, what you want us to the fight what kinds of nonsense stereotypes and about a supposed to being thrown on the scrapheap Assange through your journey, and your you realize what the situation is in use of overcoming.

I mean that was a great way of getting into the subjects where you thinking in terms of art as a potential career path or was it surely a passion if anyone of autism corrected and then not know this. It was something that I want to sort of investigating and an experiment in not knowing where it would be me too. And it was a pure sort of curiosity in terms of visual arts or screen arts. I guess I remember when I first interview in two thousand eleven tied to shame. You were talking about the fact that there was great TV when you were growing up in England. And so that was your original kind of interest. But then I think there was a girlfriend the came along that made film more appealing to you as well. Yeah. I mean growing up in England to be on TV as well. Those those great television. I mean before you know, the the recent situation, which is not so great anymore. Great radio to educational programs. Documentaries. So it was very much about documentaries can sometimes be over the intellectual overly educational. But which was great because it Nathan if he didn't know what it was is that it was about you was held on. And that was great.

"If you know the name Alexander McQueen likely associated with runways and red carpets. Lee Alexander McQueen was his full name and he was a kind of designer put on fashion shows that verged on performance art. It was just one of the ways that he pushed the boundaries of what fashion could be. His creativity landed him a job as a chief designer Jiangxi, the huge French label when he was only in his twenties and he founded his own brand which remains popular among stylists and celebrities to this day. But that's really just one snapshot of who Alexander McQueen really was a lot of people out there still wonder about the person behind all of this incredible work. Alexander McQueen died by suicide back in twenty ten when he was alive. He was known to say, if you wanna know me look at my work, that is what director Ian bonnet set out to do in his new documentary is called McQueen. And it leads you through the different chapters of the. Seiners work as well as archive footage and rear interviews with Leo exander mcqueen's friends and family. And as you're about to hear it allowed in nut to get to the core of who Lee was and still look back on everything that he achieved. I think Lee when beyond fashion. So you know, in fashion, you have people that work in season or star or colors. Lee work in ideas and concepts, and it could get inspired by book could get by by movie, could get inspired by the truly a piece of art, an artist like ribka horn. And so there wasn't like a clear way. You could always you every time you show an Alex MacQueen show you. You didn't know what to expect in could be completely different from one season to the next. What about the man behind the art who was Leila Zana McQueen to you? I think was very, very unbel-. Simple guy e basically painted in the media has. Bad boy of the of the British fashion world. It was very sensitive and maybe overly sensitive, and that's why we needed to to create sort of hard shelled for himself and sometime maybe look a little bit aggressive on the outside the inside. He was a very soft gentle person. Most of the people interviewed that remember him more what they miss the most by him. It's his sense of humour is always love the fact that you know he was a constant journey of of emotion with Lee may many times involved loads and loads of love, nothing. It's very important for audiences to understand. They're creating a fashion show and the number of credit to create every year sometime to fourteen year. The work was win, tense, Wisconsin, constant constant relentless. So sometimes you know, he goes too much and you get tired and you and you push yourself to delimit. But at the end of the day, they they were having great fun. Making it just hearing you talk about all of this stuff makes you realize that there's so many facets to this man and his work and so many different angles. You could've taken to tell the story and make a documentary about his life. What what were you guys looking to have be at the heart of this story we place to shows is fashion shows Lee, if you took the freshen shows from Lee Lee would have stock fashion. And I think you know, I think the fashion show it's almost almost started from the fashion show in the knees by some of the election. He had to have a concept in the night yet to work from. So that's what we did. We took it to his work to his word. Any would say, if you wanna know me, look at my work and immense at the shows is shows are Tabatha. So we basically cho- chose five major shows. And through that we explore more personal life is relationship is friends. Family is on issues. Israel. Shipped to freshen to is way than the way looked and we could have into some of the more documents has the mental issues he struggled with. You talked about the film being derived from his shows and in the end it was very interesting. You used five shows and you use them as chapters of historian chapters in your documentary.

What about the man behind the art who was leagues under McQueen to you? I think was very, very unbel-, simple guy e basically, you know, painted in the media. Has bad boy of the of the British fashion world, but it was very sensitive and maybe overly sensitive, and that's why we need to to create sort of hard shelled for himself in sometime maybe look a little bit aggressive on the outside. The inside was very of gentle person. Most of the people interviewed that remember anymore what they miss the most by him, it's his sense of humour is always love the fact that he was a constant journey of of emotion with Lee may many times involved loads and loads of love. Nothing. It's very important for audiences to understand. They're creating a fashion show and the number of collection he had to create every year sometime to fourteen a year. The word was win tense. Wisconsin's constant constant relentless. So sometimes you know, he goes too much and you get tired and you and you push yourself to delimit. But at the end of the day, they they were having great. It fun making it just hearing you talk about all of this stuff makes me realize that there's so many facets to this man and his work and so many different angles. You could've taken to tell the story and make a documentary about his life. What what were you guys looking to have be at the heart of this story. We place to shows is fashion shows Lee, if you took the fashion shows from Lee Li would have stock fashion. And I think he, you know, I think the freshen show, it's almost almost started from the fashion show, and then he is by some of the election. He had to have a concept in the night yet to work from. So that's what we did. We took it to his work to his word. Any would say, if you wanna know me, look at my work and immense at the shows is shows are other by graphical. So we basically cho- chose five Mitchell's. And through that we explore more personal life is relationship is friends. Family is on issues is resting shift to freshen to is weight than the way looked. And we could delve into some of the more darker elements as the mental issues he struggled with. You talked about the film being derived from his shows and in the end. It was very interesting. You used five shows and you use them as chapters of historian chapters in your documentary. That first chapter revolves around Alexander mcqueen's first show, which was Jack the ripper stocks..

You clicked in thinking you were watching a Steve McQueen documentary, and instead you got fashion designer, Alexander McQueen funny, Steve McQueen was a colossal douche bag, and it's funny how we it's not part of the metoo movement. It's not part of the whatever. But like when you see his son like Chad interviewed this funny how there's like kind of code for stuff like everyone talks about seeing McQueen. It's like it was generous guy. He was your best friend, but you disagreed with him. You get a punch and. Guys punching you. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh man. If you, if you're a writer and you screwed up that punctuation and you'd better duck. We're doing when he was doing the Ma. He had one hundred seventy two riders and fourteen different directors. I'll punch. They punch your ball. I mean, hey, here's a greatest guy in the world. World when he was eating a snow cone and you were blowing him not the greatest kind of world. We had to give them some bad news. I disagree with your thoughts on the script, or I think somebody else should direct. Oh, he, oh, boy. He punched in the face the way you're not speculating about what that would be like to be around. Somebody like that. We have Ray in our lives. He is somebody who would physically assault you for even not sliding him. So we know it's an unpleasant saying, like, when you're describing somebody you could say about, you know, Timothy McVeigh. That was a great guy to have a beer with, but he'd blow you up, you know, crossed. Yeah, everyone's a great guy and have a beer with like when you're when their team is on and their team is winning and they got a beer, everyone's a great guy to have, but the guys we sort of measure the guys is when you have to go to them with bad information, like scratch your car cleaned or whatever. And if they punch in the face for that, yeah, mcqueen's l. they is is great. You'd better don't cross it. I mean, he go, you tell them some news. You don't wanna hear what you were having fun. He was a lot of fun. But then when we were working, he punch you. Take a swing at everybody, which is crazy. Also, he did a good power move. I think I'm going to do with I learned in his his other doc, which is I want to do with Matt fund Lear, which is steel is lady..

She also hepatitis b. or maybe I made that, I don't know probably, but she described that at the time is like she was really proud because it was like that was that was the scene that gutter the other stuff. And then it does a lot of things. I don't want to spoil it for you, but they do a lot of interesting things where they filming someone in an environment and I'm thinking like the, yeah, that guy and you think, oh, they living one way, but then as the camera pans back and the documentary rose up, you realize, oh, actually they living this way and I'm talking in storage sheds or on the floor or on the run from the cops? Yeah, it's visual in that way, for sure. I. You saw that today? Yeah, Jesus. I. The thing I love the most was so German guy hedge fund guy on the run. His son is interviewed with his current girlfriend and towards the end, she does not hold like not in a mean way, but she kind of honestly says how she feels about his father and what he really is. What he really is like now, kind of why they think he's changed his ways or if they think he's changed and the sun kind of agrees with their and I'm like, dude, Mary that girl now because show ground you chilies fucking leave you here. Yeah. It's a great cautionary tale. This documentary, I saw one that was better. Okay. Hey, by the way I send the front row the couch theater. Oh, that's the only seat left. It was fine. Yeah, I saw a documentary about Steve McQueen, the fashion designer who Alexander McQueen, what am I keep saying? I've been saying not the sexy hunka hunka. Motorcycle riding Steve McQueen or the also sexy. Adorable way director, Steve McQueen. So Steve McQueen was not this. This is Alexander McQueen whose real name was actually leagues into McQueen. And he unfortunately committed suicide in twenty ten. Yes. Also, what a great name to like if you're mad at him when he's your son, Leo exander McQueen. Yes, get players. So this documentary, obviously his life is a tragedy. He was this sort of prodigy came from east London which you've been done. And if we went to east London, like ROY, like jellied eels cab drivers, proper London, like cockney had to have driven through proper proper London is really working class soul to the amazing people and cab drivers in London that whole history of cab drivers. Really just mostly salt of the earth guys loved. I loved them and you know, so he came from that kind of background wasn't very well. Educated wasn't conventionally looking weight but was gay and didn't realize it for a while, but just had this neck for something and he was so so driven, but he was also sort of accidental. He his first job. He got a job own. The suit street in London, which is a scaping me. It'll come to me later on where the oldest oldest Taylor's in the world were men that like sort of seventy and came up that was their apprenticeship where they would take cloth and draw chalk on it and fabric, and just like, look at you and know what size you custom suits. And he started off there and then ended up working in so many different fashion houses and his. This is about his ascent to fame. In, but it's shorts so beautifully in the same way that his collections were. He was more of a almost like an installation artist. We saw some Queen stuff at the lack MMA. Yes, yes. We very Bowie. Escalad of the stuff. Yeah. Airy rock and roll. Very, but also. I don't know, like super modern, like definitely works of art. Yes. I mean, he was sort of his collection was by Jack the ripper. So east London, we're talking blood guts, women, a lot of people said he was misogynous staying here, that kind of thing. One of his job, one of his runway shows was based around right, and it was women ages stumbled out onto the catwalk as using it was he was very, very controversial..
