"Can you try that out. So maybe a little bit of dryness. 'cause you know like life happens. It's not like anybody's stress straight now rate And so you know something happens. You have a sort of a momentary episode of pain. Because maybe you're not lubricating. Well triggers a little bit of that muscle spasms so then you try to compensate and you're like oh let me get a water base. Luther can't then as you get all that irritation and then it just makes it worse than then you're thinking every time you have sex on my gosh. What if i use that lubricant might make it worse and you know all those things can have an impact so you know silicones. The easiest one to use because almost no lubricants published their as morality or their ph. So it's really hard for me to say you know us brand axe or use brand. Why because they could also change the recipes. So if he uses silicone lube. You kinda take all that out of the mix and the irradiation from a water based lubricant can feel like a bladder infection or used infection or you know if you had pain was sack said could have also led to a sequence of events that might have increased your risk for bladder infection. Dr jen for a while. I used coconut oil but it made my balance off. So what do you mean by major balance off. It didn't smell bad. different and then when i stopped it stopped okay. We don't have a lot of data on just using sort of straight wales. There is a small study looking at olive oil which didn't find any difference that was for women after menopause. In general coconut oil seems pretty. Well tolerated. I have a lot of people who use it but the way. We smell everywhere. Head to toe is generally related to the bacteria in our bodies and our vaginal bacteria is no different and so we have colonies. Bacteria that are typically lacked a bacilli but some people have other ones that produce things that keep our vagina healthy that also produces how we smell and so it's possible if you introduce something different for you for your bacteria that might cause a change and if that changes bothersome to you then go back to what you were doing before. My body reacts to natural healthy things look at everything. Natural is eventually bad for you. If you have too much oxygen it can be bad for you if you have too much. Water can be bad for you. So you know i love you. Doctor jan so say we we have intercourse. And you know we use lubricant. How would you recommend that. I cleanse myself after we finish having sex like is it safer that to still be within me or do some sort of paper cleanse afterwards so you should never clean inside your vagina ever because that will cause problems so after sex. You don't need to do any kind of special cleaning. I mean you know you can have the traditional sex towel on the bedside table if you like to kinda mop up between your legs You know or if your partner is carrying. They'll they'll grab the sex towel for you. Yes maybe we can have. We could have a hell house. Yes i love it. So so yes so you know..

"Medicine physician and advocate for women's health. She has been called twitter's resident gynecologist and the vagina whisper. Okay maybe i came up with a vagina whisper. But you'll see why. I do need to emphasize that while we hope. Our conversation is educational and helpful. Nothing should be taken as medical advice. If you're experiencing medical issue or have a question about a medical issue please talk to your doctor. Okay and now. Dr jen gunter. Hi dr jan. Thank you so much for doing this today. I thank you so much for having me irate. Blessed kalisz hello. Hi liz how are you. it's on a donna. I'm so excited. I'm doing great.

I've been noticing over the last year so that i've been having trouble self lubricating or getting wet. I'm not entirely sure what the exact terminology is for it. I've been with my partner for about five years now and we have a really healthy sex life and he's a very generous partner. But i've been finding that this is getting in the way a lot more often to the point where we'll just stop having sex. What i find confusing is like you know. We'll be doing four playing. It feels good. But i'm not having the physical response with my body and that's clearly getting in the way of what goes on beyond for play. Do you mind my asking how old you are. No not at all. I'm twenty seven years old. That seems young doctor jan. Will you help us out. Because i assumed that age was related like menopause. Or you know. and i'm forty four. So i keep waiting for those days to when i'm not as looped so definitely lubrication can change with age so that's certainly one factor but there can actually be a lot of different things involved so is it. Okay if i ask you a couple of questions liz. Oh your first okay. So are you taking any medications. Yes birth control. I take the pill..

Two thousand and one email celebrates his thirtieth anniversary with virtually every business in the developed world signed on A. Wow isn't that relations email. I know I just wish I could be a person that like invents email do you. Yeah I totally disagree. If you're just picking skillset like you're going to be out and about and in public in parties in have friends and to be the person who invented email versus the person who's like a fun provocative conversationalist. I'm never picking that accomplishment. Like this is dax he invented email and then. I just shut the fuck up for the next three hours and I got a ride on that. Pick your skill set thank you. I'm saying I could be me at also invent email. Your eyes are bigger than your stomach. You can't be everything you'll you want to be a comedian Anna invent email? Yeah and be Michael Jordan. Okay well I'm going to do all those things all right okay. You said that you two had a sketch that Fredo was in from. But you know that you made it clear that Frito is from idiosyncrasy. He's the character you played in the oxy but people people don't know is in lots of these movies. They take existing characters so you that was a character. You had in the groundlings. Then you brought to that old one that I had in highschool there in weekly then took to the groundlings then honed in yet took to right but I mean like lots of characters on. Snl are characters that people have created in the groundlings or you see the sketches shows and then they move those characters over to these platforms. Yeah I don't think man tell you something really even deeper dive on that which is interesting. This is one of the reasons that I liked. It is so if you do it on Saturday night. Live at the. There's some number if you do a character twice or three times then. Lorne owns the character in so if you want to go make a movie night at the Roxbury he owns those characters now invented even though you invented it in. So I know that Mike Myers had saved a couple of characters like he did them wants to workshop on the show but didn't do him the second time but anyways this exists in the comedy theater world as well so second city they pay you yet to to perform there but what they get for that as they own your shit too and growlings. They don't pay you but you own everything you create and see. Yeah so I always was like oh I would rather oh my shit not make money and they probably don't pay very much for as per show. No I mean I think you can live. You can live as a proclaimed yes you that can be your fulltime job any hope. So that's just some background background. So she said she's done. Snl Five or six times. She's hosted five times. Been nominated five. Times is every time. But I don't know. Is that counting like when she comes on as Spicer so I think she's done like probably another five or six appearances. Tried to few Taivon having his most McCarthy on snl it just comes up with our hosts danger IMDB page and then go to the SNL thing and see how time quit real time. Also it should be noted while I'm looking this up and people should know we've been trying to get Melissa on since day. Two of this podcast. And she's the busiest person I've come across It's been impossible. Intil never never quit fighting. I want to applaud you publicly for keeping up the good fight. Thank you thank you. I would have given up a long before. Okay Sarah night lives so she was Sean Spicer three times now. Maybe she was played. Sean Spicer when she hosted may be no no. No nope no because it says here. Sean Spicer Jimmy Fallon Slash Harry styles. Sean Spicer Alec Baldwin Slash Ed Sheeran Rajon Spicer Kristen Stewart Slash car. Minimally eight time. She's been on the show. Hey through her hosting duties in her Sean Spicer exactly. I wonder if Lorne I'm sure he looks back on some people especially like her. And as just like fucked up Lauren. Michaels was a producer. I'm baby Mama right and we're doing re shoots and I'm sitting there talking to learn and we got along really well and at one point he goes. I'm sad that we never got you to serve your time on the show. Let's job RESI. That was such a silver lining to here considering. I had only been trying to get on that show for eight years of my life. Yeah yeah so to have been wanting that for eight years never into that. The have the godfathers say we wish you had served your time on Saturday night. Live felt really awesome. Yeah it's the closest I could get to not feeling like I failed at that goal. Yeah that's so interesting because by then you had you were done caring right or did you still. It was still a thing. I had literally dedicated like I was going to become a doctor. You know like the most significant chunk of my life. I've ever pursuing something. Yeah and not getting it. Yeah Yeah it always Kinda smart. That's it yeah that's kind of funny. Because I feel like those things come to fruition once you stop caring At that point I wouldn't have preferred to be on SNL. Because I was making good money and I was traveling for movies knows having these fun experience. I was doing baby Mama working with Tina and amy. Yes I'm doing. I'm living the dream in two hour. Long sketch with those two EXAC didn't want at that. Point joined the cast in make a tenth of the amount of money and be there for seven years. But it does it. Is this a residual scab or injuries? And they just felt very nice to have the person who I was dying to notice me. Say That to me. Yeah yeah it helped guide you got. That helped yeah in even if he didn't mean it. I thank him for saying because helped. I'm sure he meant it. Why would he say if you didn't mean but back to what you're asking? I doubt he thinks that. Because there's so many get away like the volume of people over the last forty years of him producing that show. Yeah the people that have just become Hugh Jim Carey as he maddie didn't get Jim Carey. Many that found their way. Well not so many not so many. Actually that's the thing like I bet he does because his identity is based around signed the funniest people on Earth. He DID FOR FORTY YEARS. He has found the funniest people on the most part and so if a few like Melissa Hughes she so she's not just that she's so funny she so meant to be on. Snl She so character would have been welfare. Exactly yes I agree with you and so to miss on someone like that. I think probably hurt him. We should ask them. I would love to have on anyhow. Well that's all that's all Lissa. I love you know what we should say because Christian brings it up every time and I think it's worth repeating because it just happened in. A vacuum is a few years back. I went and did an Improv show at the groundlings I was terrible That's aside no but I was in two hand seen with Melissa and the suggestion was where are these people and they said on a first date a blind date and we go great and then the lights come up emily immediately. Her first line was couple. Things you need to know about me. I'm six months pregnant and I am between jobs to be on a first date six months pregnant great in between jobs. All right. Well I love you you great gray on gray..

She looked pretty. Ugly accused three so cute. That's why I can make that joke. There's one year that I had a mushroom cut My mom made. Oh my God. My mom is cutting hair now. The quarantine is she cut my dad's hair and she was bragging about it. Oh and then. She cut her sister's hair and she is bragging about it so much. She uses watching youtube videos to learn layering. Layering Unquote normal. I have something more to bond about. Because we're both beauticians both love to cut hair. We both have the cut here by the way. Did you get any feedback from the today? Show that aired today today. Yes I did a very small thing on the today show and aired this morning so proud of you I said how excited are your parents that you're going to be on the today show and you said why didn't tell them. I said what is wrong with him too so I text your mother. Your baby daughter's going to be on the Today. And she's a jerk and your mom was appreciative. Yeah then she got mad at me. Good no not good. Look tell me you make me sound like a bra on here and now I'm self conscious about. I'm sorry that's a brassiness. I think that's insecurity. Yeah it is so it shouldn't be pinned as this thing. I did to them like I didn't do anything to them. It was a three minute thing on the today show on the today show. You're on television the today show being asked your opinion on stuff. That's so wonderful it is. I'm grateful for it. It's very nice but I didn't think I did a great job and I didn't really want to see it. Yeah I relate. I never invited anyone. I knew when I did stand up. People would come and I'd be mad right so relate okay. Yeah I'm with you. I'm on both sides on your mom's side in your side. I wasn't nervous and then as soon as we started. I got kind of nervous and then I felt surprised that I was Alva. Satcher that can take you by surprise. Yeah and then that I think that maybe a little more in my head or something so that I I was like Oh. This is knowing while 'cause I must be visibly nervous. Were you shook by the technical limitations of the experience? No it wasn't that like a delay thing like Oh fuck I can't just talk. No it wasn't that I think it was. Oh this is going to be more skill than I was expecting because it was short very short and I knew it was going to even get cut down even more and you know he was a pro crag crag was my interviewer crag was really charming and cool but but like he was moving really quick because he knew move queer. Yeah and I was like fuck like there's no time to like be cute. And chatty like I kinda have to get to the point but I still wanna be q yes so that you don't WanNa feel like a motoring through it exactly. It'll just telling 'cause I was giving my opinion of podcasts at listening to And there were different categories so I felt like yeah I don't want to just like be listing them and then saying one thing about why liked it like I wanted to give it all? Dan Layer. Yeah feels a little Improv. Exactly and so I got little my head that was happening and Anne Hill but a few people text this they had caught it. Oh Yeah do you remember. Last summer hosted the today show with Jenna Bush. There in that studio as the person getting asked the question several times. What a fucking experience. It is to be the other so I bet because I only had to worry about my segment but you had that experience. Twelve Times over the course of an hour where it's so accelerated. I've felt like real time. It took eleven minutes to record that our. Yeah so that was this morning. But in a saver for that or you're giving haircuts. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah and you love to give haircuts job given. I gave Erica Haircut. Yes Nice one. I'd say yeah you give Nice Haircut. This was very hard to cook so curly. I've never heard that curly. Oh and it's hard to pull it up to see the length because all the top pieces just curl over your fingers. It's really hard to get a sense. A man yeah. I bet on a woman. That's less of a problem because the hair's longer still as you're moving your hands down to pull it out. You want to see if there's any you want to be straight ish but it's just all folded or this pieces this long you'd have the right time with mine. Then no I can pull yourself really lazy. I know wave. He's fine. It's when it actually curls over sixty your fingertip I see you got to basically pulled each hair up. It's impossible. I bet my mom thinks she'd be able to handle it. She's very arrogant about hair. Cutting skills another I think about it. I guess the move would have been pull all the way up in the cut from the bottom which never done. But that actually is how I prob- anyways fuck now. I'm realizing how okay watch videos like. I am a skilled petition. Melissa Melissa so well this part is confusing. Because she wasn't recording at the very very buried top because we were just bantering but then she mentions pine Sol okay and just wanted people to know we were talking about her cleaning her bathroom with Pine Sol before we started. Okay that's the she brings up the bathroom cleaning pine Sol. It was in reference to something. We'd spoken about a call but earlier. It was a callback. Okay and then. She said when her dad her dad would wake up at five. And then tell Ron it was nine. Oh and then I just made me wonder like if you had your druthers. What time did you wake up the left to my own I would. I would go to sleep at one. Am and wake up at nine. That would be the perfect schedule for me. Well that's where like at one actually WanNa falsely and at nine. I WANNA get up like I'm ready to get up. Yeah like any other hours. I'm forcing myself to go to sleep. And I'm forcing myself to wake up. Yeah I see that. Oh we should say I'm not GonNa have to do that as much. Bless this mess got canceled today. So sorry feel sad for everyone. That's worked so hard on it over the last couple of years lake and Liz and the cast and it's a great show. It's a great show. It's really funny. I love watching the girls but I talked everyone.

"That's a comedy they're like. Oh I give it like a thirty Mike. Well the thing I particularly bristle about and Danny McBride and I had a nice bitch session about. It is the total failure to recognize how hard it is to make. Comedy work versus. I can push in a camera and I can play Peter. Gabriel and guess what you're gonNA feel an emotion. There's no cheating and comedy them to not even acknowledge that as frustrating like you go. Oh wasn't my brand of comedy but I could see that it's well made and I could see everyone's laughing around like the unwillingness to even recognize the architecture of it in respect it is I find offensive. Now you don't have to like something. But as a reviewer you should be knowledgeable enough to recognize the mechanics of it. Yes it is sometimes just like you can't be a food critic if you're like. I only like peanut butter and white bread. Everything else is terrible you. My friend should get a different job. Like if you're if you're saying I can look at everything with an open opinion and it doesn't have to be my thing but this was very good or this was done. Well I think people will like it but I also think a little bit of it is like instagram. Like you school. Scroll through instagram. You see the guy. Light a firework in his ass. And You KINDA CHUCK ALL RIGHT. You get a little chuckle. You can scratch your comedy. You can't really scratch your drama. It's you're not gonNa really see something in a thirty second video that fulfills you in that desire for drama part of it is. I feel like we're competing with this immediate thing but the thing that scares me as the thing you just mentioned which is that aside. The shared experience of being at wedding crashers opening night was so profound compared to evaluate watched it on my phone and that's a hard thing to convince younger. People don't have those fun memories of going to see the Bill Murray movie when it came out in that shared. Oh we all were with that audience or just roll and that laughter. What happened you? Do you leave the bit more of like humanity? Not just a laugh. But you're like I got in a room with a bunch of strangers which God knows when that will happen again and we have this shared experience e you feel it is someone to be like. Didn't affect me at all and it transient. You could be sitting next to a guy from Texas with a cowboy hat on. You could be sitting next to a rabbi to your left when Owen Wilson says we only use ten percent of our heart to see all of us. Laugh you're like Oh there's some unifying beauty to this thing. Yeah it says it brings people together. That would never normal late. You're right in the same room. Have the same opinion on something. Yeah there's a power to it. Yeah I just feel like it's verbally. It's fallen out of fashion but when people like the comments I get I get more people just being like. Please keep making the movies you make because we need it. I need to go home at the end of the day and laugh. And that's not everything you're doing is great. I just mean like that's the comment. I get all the time. It's like. Just keep it up because we need something. Yeah but then I. I don't feel like that sentiment gets through. May Be to the people kind of choosing and and commenting on the brass. Yeah Okay Well. Listen America. I was on the outside and I saw the beginning. I'm not Ben but I'm the next best thing you're going to hear from. Is that this Gal. I was around for most of the ride and I saw at the pinnacle on the boss. I'd even say you're kinder than you were when we are at the groundlings visions. And you weren't telling me about the volume versus ticket price. I'm just so happy that it all went the way it went that America got to see the thing I had been seen for free for years. It's just one of my happiest examples that I've been around in the fact that you stayed so beautiful and nice and kind generous. And you stayed in your pod. Your realist fuck. That's my conclusion. Real your real real real McCarthy. Well you're a sweeter peaches you ever were. I hope a little better even better that way. You're even better than you always were. Which is is saying something. Well I adore you and I look forward to seeing being over in us to go for a swim in your pool. Dead All right John. You Okay Bye love.

"Star. Everyone else is going to support this person's moment to be funny. It was very collaborative which is very growl. Sketch comedy. Yeah when I went in I thought I tanked on the way home idiot idiot talking about like I had like a sexual encounter underwater with Dolphin and I literally was driving home to you dummy you dummy even various Christian and Anne what the hell are you talking about first of all like you can't have sex with I'm like Oh my God I never I never thought in a million years is going to get it and then you did and then oh my gosh overnight you're GonNa get to be the lead of movies like crazy in the way that Sandler and all these people that we looked up to that happened. Yeah Ben Neier always like you know we start a new movie or if we sell something it. They're still a look like afterwards. We're like what the hell just been a running game of. We expect somebody to be like. Oh my God we figured out who you gotta go. Sorry you guys have got it. We you know your idea got switched with someone else's but we're onto you now and we wanted to make we gotta tell some other presidents have studios that this is a big clerical error. They should have never been led in. I kind of always think that I've had such a fun. Ride the Mike when it happens. I'm going to be like e you got it. Want TO CLEAN UP OUR SNACKS. Or you just get out okay. Can I take my chair back? No okay is it so nice that you guys have been on the ride from day one together like. That's so cool that you kinda see also can't really get away with anything. Because he's a part of your history. Not just the Melissa McCarthy Melissa McCarthy yeah it's like the best how we met you know I mean we met being stupid and doing these crazy characters and he was my favorite person to write with so many people are always like. Oh what's it like spending all day with with your husband than coming home with well? I kind of married someone crazy about so. It's kind of awesome now. Did you feel the pressure of like when you came out of bridesmaids like? Oh Shit now I gotTa Chew. It's such a shift in thinking. I just want to in this stuff and Elvis like oh I got to choose responsibly as funny. It's just talking about this. Bateman called me Jason Lumber hauled him like wanted to talk about something and I was like who is this like. Who is this really? Just there's there's a thing written for two guys that you and I could. Do you WanNa meet for lunch and Mike this is. Tod couldn't couldn't quite process. But I think thinking sounds like Bateman yet going and listening to someone be like. Here's a great idea. What do you think I was used to? You know US doing staff we all talk about it and but it wasn't used to someone so established and successful being like what do you think it was a moment of like because at that moment. I was like Emmy only get one more. Yeah Yeah I mean how many people you know. You're one and done or two and done Ben and I talked about. He seems Nice. It seems like it'll be kind of silly and fun. Somebody over thought it at all. I was just like my supposed to be doing like pros and cons. Is there a graph? I'm supposed to be making? I was like he seems really fun due diligence as how to do that like. I didn't know what I was doing of course not I main thing was like. Are you against a red curly wig? Kind of as I'm going to have to get my props in order because the show. When do we start young enough to go to Salvation Army and pick up? Did kind of think like you know. I have some red wigs there like we can. We'll have someone do cocoa. Yeah Yeah I know I know I knew that identity theft and you guys were so great together just worked. Here's what I'm curious about. I have come through this whole thing with some knowledge now at forty five that I could've used when I was twenty eight. God yes I wanted money and I wanted to be recognized and I wanted all these things and I was certain that if I got those things I was going to feel a certain way that it was gonna fill a certain hole in me and then I was lucky enough to get a lot of those things in in discover. Oh Shit that they didn't really do the thing I was expecting and I'm just wondering if you've had that experience as well I mean I think for me I always think of it as staying steady. And they've stayed steady with my friends. I've stayed steady with Ben. I don't live any differently than than I would if I still was at groundlings and still you know being a a or doing other other jobs and love what I do but I think as I got it so much later I was already like. I'm kind of fully cooked. This is why this is what you're GONNA get an. It's so many years trying to even get an agent trying to get got one one commercial commercials just hated my guts. And I was like you know I was told I I don't I don't come off as a neighbor that was a common. I got once in. Mike. I am a neighbor crying me and actually a neighbor. And they're like she just doesn't seem like a neighbor of Mike because they had me like. What does that mean? I seem crazy or like I live in a dungeon now. This person lives in a car. There one's neighbor maybe some parks. I guess temporarily their neighbors but I think I went through all those kind of if I was this. Maybe it would work five. Is Taller younger prettier. Maybe I need to be be harsher. A member for a day was doing something and someone who is just very very difficult just kind of got everything handed to them and I literally tried it for a day and other than literally getting like Weird Rashes and I felt awful. Ben came to set that day. And he was so grossed out he was like a total asshole. What is the matter with you and I might? But I'm just trying to stake my claim because it works for so and so and he's like you just snapped at somebody about coffee and you did it to someone that you really really like and it was like. I know I'm trying something. I literally spent like the rest of the day. I did it for probably four hours until Ben was like you're disgusting in. You're like I don't know who you are. And then the rest of the day it was like crying and like telling people like I don't know trying something very uncomfortable and I went through this having been see it. It's like oh it's just awful. I was like I'm all right with I'm who I am. I've gone through the everybody has such you know we all have weird insecurities obscene you as the leader on the set of the movie. You got green light because Kristen was in it and I got to see you and you're just a beautiful kind patient. You couldn't be nicer more benevolent person. What you've done brilliantly is like Mallory still writes shit. Yeah you're in Ben Direct stuff. You're in you seem to have recognized. No the gift of this like doing it in this group and then it's just joy. I have to say that like we're going to work. There's all these people that we've been doing this for so long and like you came to do something and it's like you do just start to. I think really early on. I thought like you can never break into these things. Because it's all like these clicks Baba and I realize we. Yeah when you get like twenty five people that are just absolutely wonderful. And they're great at what they do and they're beautiful lovely human beings. Why would you not go back to the same well and then each time you bring in new people but like it's such a nice thing to like? I love going to work but you do have to set it up so it's not like oh by the way you know you're going to spend four months with someone who's a screamer. Mike nope yes. Sometimes it work. I just think this is my job. Like I'm I'm literally doing what I did it like three years old like I pretending to be old lady somehow I feel like I'm conning everybody I still play make believe and it's like stupid bits for your friends and that's our professional job octavian. I just did something together. And we had these insane superhero suits on where have huge like it was all like the suits had gone wrong shaking up and down trying to see what body parts. We could make balance in front of the camera and I was like we are being completely professional right now. This is very very professional behavior. But we're standing there trying to see like what parts of your body can you make bounce and we're like yeah. This is the job. The notion that you're you're delivering what the boss wanted by doing the thing you got in trouble for in school is what a what a station. I've directed a couple of car chase things and have cops watch me do a stunt crowded downtown area and then give me the thumbs up as I drive by. I'm like Oh my God. How did I figure out this situation? This is incredible fever dream. So the only person that you've really got to be with that I'm still in deep. Jealousy of is of course bill. Murray 'cause see I guess for me as the just the number one of all number ones. He's a Unicorn. What was it like? We got along really well. I was so nervous to meet him. I was like Jesus to I say Mr I got jacked up with like. I don't just say bill. Just walk in and say hey bill so it was like Mr Murray and I was like practicing Hello Bill Murray and kept getting more and more was getting sharper in stranger sounding and I was reading up. I was getting sweaty and I literally like. Hey Hey Hey Murray and I'm like you don't call Murray Sports Team together and all of a sudden I had lost any ability to just be like hi nice to meet you. I was like I was in the hair and makeup trailer and he walked in and I just remember I like really super got sweaty and just locked up and I didn't look and then finally I looked over and he walked down to me and I did a very awkward like maybe I'll shake your hand but it was a little weird height so he just started he started to. He turned me around a couple of times. He's pretty good height okay and he was checking out like a car and then one point pulled up my beat and was like kind of adjusting. My almost like he was chewing me and then he met like a pulled up a knee and like kind of bent my leg out and was like hey that seems to be working one. He just such a wonderfully weird incredibly talented cool guy but I I also think like when you see people like I was doing when they see him for the first time. People's wiring goes weird. I got the feeling instead of making me stumble through my own. Murray Mr Bill. Murray Mr Murray Bill Bill. I think he was like I'm just gonNA totally be myself but also be weird enough that you don't have to do anything it. It was like a four minute thing that by the time he was done. I was laughing so hard. We just did an introduction but so weird and so funny and also working with them I have to say..

"And I think one point is working at the Y. Would Piss me off because I am barely paying for my rent which I'm like. I'm little sleeping in the kitchen in the studio with my friend. I just thought there's no one else work are I am I. Is it to other people. Work like animals and everybody else's just home all day like tiffany tick tick tick tick tick computer. And then he's realize I have to stop looking at it because I'm starting to like hey people just because I just wanted to call and be like what are you do all day. How where's your money? Come from I. I haven't had a fresh vegetable and six. We you see you seem fine. Well thank God. We weren't in it during the INSTAGRAM era because we would have been watching. People like eat at Nice restaurants and stuff going what is happening. Why aren't they broke like me? And also all of my twenties and thank God that there's no proof of any of it. No record other than me. I'm a liability to you really a yes but I guess he's so this group so it had a bunch of names right. It was berry foot. It was house a floyd was but I gotta say the most like surreal moment I had was the year you got nominated for bridesmaids and Jim and NAT got nominated and Octavia was nominated and Christian and Anne. It was all like what the Hell is going on people that usually are catering it. You're fifty percent of the nominees. It was crazy and I remember Jim and Nat when they won walking down and I just I burst out crying and I couldn't figure out what the hell was happening. I was like we're not the ones like we're doing this weird thing. I was like wait. They're walking down the aisle and like who there were passing. I just could not fully get my head around what was happening. Years was the. I'll be watching it together to then right sketches for Wednesday. That will make fun of the whole thing. Just the whole process was like Oh my God and I just remember. It was to emotions for me. One was Oh my God. This is amazing. This is a miracle and I'm so happy for everyone. It's so beautiful that all these little people came together and they tried really hard and then and then they're here so that was a real big part of it but then the other part that was a little bit perception shattering was. Oh all those heroes. I had were just people like me like there was also something that got disillusioned by the process. You know what I'm saying whereas like all those people I had been watching for twenty years. Were just like everyone. It mean. It's funny 'cause you're like. Oh if they're like my friends big deal kind of but also that there's some kind of magic like Oh maybe there's a magic thing that that's how you get there and yes there's a million different ways to finally get jobs or get to do what you love but I find sure people get lucky but I don't really have those friends. I have friends like you. Work Your Butt off. I worked my like everybody. I know they're like yeah. We're doing six free shows. We're going to class for doing this. We're self submitting for every single thing. We're not getting we can't afford. Do you. Remember the one one other shows. We did an eight and the ten because I was like not only. Can we fill a theater? We'll fill twice a night like springsteen or something but I kept saying the math works. The math works if we all invite five people and I showed up and I had to go out and be like. I'm so sorry but we we just can't do show for one person and we rented. I think it was the cannon so it was like a four hundred seat theater we were just trying to get people we had like roped it off so one guy sixty four hundred seats and he got mad at me and I remember. Please come back. We'll refund your money. You can come back with friends seats and he was like I showed up. And you're not even going to bother to do the he got so mad at me and I was like it will be. I guarantee you more awkward for us than it will even be awful for us. We can't show for one person but he was just he was so it was an impulse impulse ticket by for him. Who knows? Maybe I hadn't play. I think maybe he just needed to get out of the elements. Maybe it was like Wendy or something and he just. He's a nobody claimed him. Also everybody in like we have no idea when we have to get him out of my well. Yeah I think Ben sent me like a picture of that Flyer. He found it recently and he was like. Oh my God you remember this. This show where one person showed up. Okay so I'm GonNa tell you about your life from outside. Okay Okay but you were the first person among us that got full-time Employment. You're a regular on. Tv show. Which was the Gilmore Girls? Yeah and it was so thrilling I mean it was really really thrilling for all of us it was like God. So wow this really then happens or could really happen but then for me. It transferred for years where I was like man. This is tricky. Because she's got gainful employment. I'm so happy for her and yet I know she's Bill Murray and she's not getting to be bill. Murray if felt crazy to me that was I was like Oh. It's kind of a gilded cage in that she's got employment but she's not doing this thing she can do in. Everyone needs to see this thing and for me was his years of that until bridesmaids and when that happened in America was like Oh my God she can do that. I'm like yes she's been able to do that for twenty years. Yes as what she doesn't back that's what she does first and foremost and the other thing. That's impressive she can do but no the thing she can do this and so for me. I just remember thinking. Oh my God there's justice in the world you got to show this thing you could do but for me on the outside. I was just like yeah. She's great great but no she's great great. When does she get to show that? And I just wonder what your ride was like over that period where it was like you knew you had this gear that you weren't really engaging. I was just so shocked to have an actual job. That's the first time that when someone's like what do you do. I actually said I'm an actress which remember. There's probably a good six months where it was kind of like. When you first get married and then you have to say like fiance and you feel like you're suddenly seeing fake crazy word or your husband and I remember really struggling with Earth Best Person. That's like I'd like a croissant. Mike don't do that but I just remember the first time actually being able to say like I'm actress. I always thought it wasn't. I'm trying to be but I shouldn't say that because you don't get to say that until you really are and it was wild because learned so much on that show but I still did shows every single weakened groundlings because they think I was like. I love doing this job. But it's I didn't feel like it was a way to express myself or even comment on the world because I was like. Yeah they're they're really good scripts but I think I enjoy not being part of it. I don't know I think I'd just like stranger. People swinging for the fences like yeah. There's there's like a thrill going to the line and seeing pull it off and you play somebody that you're like. Yeah the surface. They're kind of awful but I kind of love them. I don't know I have real weird thing with characters a fall in love with them quite a bit and if somebody's like they're so abrasive or papa it's like wait for somebody it'd be like I really liked her. It's somehow like a person removed. That like I like her too she's noxious but she's like that's such a good heart and I really feel completely responsible for them so playing someone more middle of the road like on Gilmore was like just kind of no-stakes and there's no way to push that boundary of you're either. GonNa Leave Hating this person and myself by proxy or because of me or I can try to turn you and I think that's the whole fun of it. Also I finally stopped. Because Ben's like you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA get in trouble but I'm such a weird people watch that I used to go to that. There is a big lots on vine right on vine by over towards endless feeless and I would just. That was like my therapy. I would go three times a week and just literally push a cart around there because there was always like a woman in their an all purple and Leopard and she was like I need aries. And I was like okay I would just follow. I would follow people for like forty five minutes and then they'd leave. I just somebody else would be amazing in there. And I'm like let's go like Oh you're mining characters at big lots. Not even intentionally. I just actually. I loved them so much because I loved anybody who's like kind of like this is what it is. I wear purple and I'M GONNA throw down for batteries a I just. I don't know I think it's with other people feel about sports. They just WANNA watch it. I WANNA watch the people. I literally love them like I'm so smitten with them and then when I became a little more recognizable I couldn't do it because people recognize me. Oh my God what do I do? Now Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah I remember. I headed a an exact moment my life where I was at a Fudd ruckers in Austin beauty navy. Accuracy is just slowly realised that many of the patrons were staring at me and I just remember thinking no no. That's what I do is do you you. You can't look at me because I can't look at you also now. That movie doesn't even seem like it. That's so like played under now sane and now I'm like it's real and now it's like please that's not the worst of it. I remember even you and I had a sketch that Fredo from idiosyncrasy was in. And you old cheese at the store and I was a bag at the store and we fell in love in the scene and I felt butterflies from the scene. Like I was so happy. Frito is finding someone to not be lonely. I actually would like somehow take in those love butterflies. I love that you were back. You were the Bagger Bachelor and I wanted to play a C. For you in my truck really bad. Cd Player. I did love the idea. It's like that's the exact thing I'm talking about that character you did. You're not making fun of him. Which is a really fine line. You love him. You make the audience love and by the end so much more watchable you realize how boring so many people are you. Watch FRITO Lay's Frito for like seven hours a day but I couldn't do but if somebody else that's like doing all the right things is like more by the book and like it makes me always be like God. Some people are really boring..

I like you a lot but sometimes I think she's so good that it might in the end we're gonNA find out she's Super Shady because it just seems toogood. I couldn't agree more. That has secrets full. Because you know I'm never shocked when it's the guy like bill cosby. Where of course the guy was going around telling people they can't swear doing stand up and shaming for doing nudity. Yes that makes sense and this weather's I never trust sweaters. That can't be trusted but kristen. Stocks the house with very responsible cleaning ingredient. I know I actually I was like if I say pine saw I feel like going to texts me and be like there's all these I I use vinegar chew but today I just hit it hard and like you know what I want. Everybody all day to be like she really cleaned that bathroom exact so I wanted a little proof. Yes I couldn't agree more. This silly thing that happened where I had cut myself like in the afternoon and then I had used toilet paper to get rid all the blood and then I I purposely put the toilet paper like on top of the trash cans. So that when she got home she'd be like. Oh my goodness what happened to you but then someone threw something else out in there. And then I found myself rearranging the paper so the blood would be untouchable. I could get attention. That's so great. And then she's walking limping or like holding your wrists like Oh this is fine. Of course I tried to play it off like yeah like. I can't believe she found that I was trying to hide and then they came clean taller. That's why you're that's why. You're lovable weirdness. Plus the honesty is like a wonderful Combo. Yes scumbag and then apologetic about it like Ben his kristen. And I'm you and we're all doing fine. But benza much much better human a better person than I will ever be and most people that know us as you do are like yeah. That's that's pretty accurate and I'm glad you brought it up because I think that and I was like you know I don't know if I bring that up you know it'll be met with open arms but yeah I would say that's a really good each other.

But I've gotta take seven laps around the house going. What's GonNa who which somebody has to do something? And meanwhile by the time I'm done ranting he's like so I called this. It can really help so I did that. And then might all I've been doing is outside swearing and like he just because it does it better and I'm like oh great. He goes great intentions. A process is not always wonderful efficient. Okay but okay our our defense. So I know Ben's Dad he's the sweetest calmest most patient man. My mom is a tornado of productivity and excitement. You know so I feel like I inherited it honestly are your parents is cool. And Calm is Ben's Dad. They're both really sweet funny. But my mom's much more quiet and just kind of like.

I'd been where everyone is just bombing around every day of the week. You don't have to wait for the weekend and that's actually really helpful for what we did. Because we don't have weekends in London if I had a Wednesday off. Everyone's just giving me evil looks because I've got time off whereas there it's just a very laid back quite an alternative culture in that part of La and La's basically like twitter. It just totally depends who you follow. You can have an extremely different experience living in different parts of La knowing different people. It's very separate all these areas so you can. You can really have a completely opposed experience of living there from someone else and so I chose Venice and I was going to take a break. I felt very stagnated. It just felt like I was caught in an eddy of finding the mixer. He's mixing everybody's staff of being in competition with you know inevitably any other female musicians that anyone could think of. And I just wasn't very inspired to make a record so I've actually gone out to L. A. Really to study film composition which I did but it was really just listening to west coast rock sixties and seventies row. Tom Petty fleetwood. Mac Neil Young Joni that got me writing some real kind of Air Punch big choruses again and the world had sort of become darker at that stage that was like two thousand fifteen things were on the turn and so if I was writing similar stuff folk inspired stuff like I did on invisible empire crescent me my fourth record. I probably would have to shelve it and waited but I was writing these really. Big Pop. Choruses about overcoming difficulty so it felt like quite helpful thing to put out into the world. I was excited to do it. Yeah we're always fascinated by right zoo. Kinda take a break from when we spoke to front healy. He said it's Kinda like select the field life. Follow for Awhile and I think that's really important. I think that's why I mean. Some people can smoke fags burgers every day until they're one hundred and five and they're fine. Everyone's different but it certainly works for me to not be constantly trying to keep up a level of output people often ask about writer's block and I actually watched them a star is born. The other day was it as far as born. No it was the wife. It was that foam the wife. Brilliant Glenn Close Foam. And there's a line in it where they're at this really pretentious party. No it wasn't even the wife. Can you ever forgive me? It was one of the Oscar nominated movies when Melissa. Mccarthy goes to this book party. And someone's asking this really pretentious right or do you ever get writer's block and he goes well. I don't subscribe to writer's block I was like. Oh my God. I say that it sound so pretentious but I actually don't. I just think it's quite arrogant to expect your creative mind to just do what you tell it to do. I don't understand really where the gift of some rain comes from. And so if people ask me that question I'm like look how many books how many films how many plays how many museums of you said that you want to go and see Redo Watch ingest and you've done use that time. Fill yourself with some stuff. Get some input or sit and do nothing in your Pyjamas. Also very useful. I find but you shall time for creativity. Oh that sounds like a bit of a paradox book. Do you put a new. Yes so it's a great excuse to go on. Adventures. I love right now albums. I love albums that one piece of vinyl because I think that four or five minute cut off point is actually a really good of point for how much music you can ingest at one time. The same for podcasts. Yeah good to know. I'll keep my answers slightly shorter but yeah I think albums are a really extraordinary form of making music. Even if you're not I mean I'm in the middle of the matic are making three albums together in a trilogy at the moment. But even if you're not doing that there's a there's a familial kind of hermetically sealed world within which that record is made and so many people will come up to me and say that their favorite track is an album track. And IT WASN'T I. It would have been the single at first but Israeli side that we're kind of moving. I'm not a lot of people I know are not but in general. There is a move away from albums. And I think that that's a shame because it kind of is taking away that deep dive on a snapshot of an artist's life at that time so tell us about that idea that you've been chewing Kim and walks. Did you have a unifying concept of the trilogy before you even started? Nope that was the thing that was really funny trilogy. You would think that you would decide upon that before you started. And I didn't and I wrote can and it was so very healing experience. In that record it was coming with kind of really Fu blast Mojo but really feeling like it was the beginning of the second half of my life so I came to. Kim is quite a different person than I had been up until that point and in many ways the fourth record invisible empire crescent meeting. I kind of see funeral music. It's cold these titles because my dad died right in the middle of those sessions and it was. He wasn't very well but it wasn't expected. And then I kind of had this wake up where I just went on Gordon with the wrong person. I'm sort of in the wrong life. And so yeah. And this is when procurement was this kind of funeral march to that happening and so then became this real phoenix from the ashes. It was this real beginning of something completely new for me and you know it's very easy to take a show. L. A. N. It's completely deserved. It's total bullshit van. You know people go. Oh my God. You're amazing you've got to do the movie. Oh they never called me ever again but there is also this amazing element to la where it's really is the vanguard of a low of new thoughts from health to filmmaking to the arts. You don't get laughed at for trying weird stuff. And there's a brilliant Frank Lloyd Wright Amion love he's an intrinsic part of La's architecture and kind of culture and but he says if you turn America on its site everything falls in California and so you just get a low of Weirdos and a low of them eccentric people and the thing I particularly like about L. A. Is Wild in many ways but actually like literally you can drive twenty minutes and be at the top of a mountain and be killed by a lion and that's the truth and there's Koyo Cheese and eagles and it really is untamed and it's also completely untamed in Mississippi as well because there's not as with guns in their cars so it's just a really extreme place so meditation had been a big part an always wanted to get into yoga just healing myself and getting really healthy and it's very easy to do there and I did and I really enjoyed it. Meditation became quite an important part of my daily life. And very good doing this job to just actually learn to control your brain because a lot of the time the monkey brain is just jotting chatting biscuit to shut up for fifteen minutes Varvara Day but it was during a meditation session on the tour for Qin's Akin was all finished and I am. I just had a really really strong vision. That can was the first part of a trilogy. It was all about the soul owned by the spirit and I knew I wanted to make a real rock and roll record next and I knew I wanted to explore electric guitar because I hadn't really delved into that. It always been acoustic and that to me is the most visceral most physical Instrument Electric Guitar.

Golden Globe Nominations: Netflix Leads — In Both Movies And Television
"Golden globe nominations came out of this morning so that's going to error the seventy seven golden globes will air on January fifth the Beverly Hilton hotel with Ricky Jr vase is the host the seventy seventh annual golden globe awards it's always it's always a fun time because the actors everybody very very relaxed that might be one way to say it they're very relaxed well a lot of them appear to be have snapped in old sold now Matt Roush is on the line Matt good morning how are you pretty good how you doing good to have this chance to chat with you John Heinz in for Dave Lee here and golden globe nominations coming out here and and we're learning more and more about this a couple of my favorites made the cut including Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin for the Kaminski method which is just a I just I just that is a a marvelous marvelous shell yeah and they really do love it it didn't get quite as much love by the Emmys and all but yeah it did well for them last year at the golden globes I think Michael Douglas one and maybe Alan Arkin dead but aunts and sort of the show so that was good so good showing from them although I do think when it comes down to it what's probably going to win the big prizes this year because of the show this what the Emmys last year is Amazon's flea bag starring Phoebe Waller bridge and she's a real rising star in the show was so traffic is only six episodes for to see them then and still that so made a big impact and it's what the critics awards as well so yeah and then the marvelous with this Maisel as well the the Amazon show that the just dropped last weekend and and so people are Startin side are just now binging a probably but that one does very well at the awards to be yes and the the Kaminski method is a favorite of the golden globes and the golden globes do love shows that have sort of really starry cast on them like Michael Douglas coming back to television and that was a really big deal so another another show I think somebody beat some people might be surprised got a bunch of nominations is the morning show from the brand new streaming service apple but it's a very starry inside the baseball behind the scenes look at a morning show that has the Matt Lauer type scandal it was nominated for best drama and the two stars Jennifer Aniston Reese Witherspoon were both nominated and they're just big stars and and the globe I mean people like Jennifer Aniston just like tailor made for a globe nomination so even though that still got some X. reviews it's in the top tier of the drama series being nominated for the clubs the thing about that let me mention mark marvelous Mrs Maisel how many episodes do they drop when they drop for a season something they do to him this time they did eight episodes episode so and then when we look at this when we look forward to what's going on I'm curious to know this doesn't ever become like a precursor though for the Emmys doesn't because the Emmys are quite a ways away it's not as it's not as tied to the Emmys as it is seen as like an Oscar precursors of right look at this is like a bellwether for what's going to happen the Oscar nominations and what's really happening there is the fact that Netflix is has just released dominated the field in both television and movies with movies like the Irishman M. marriage story and even smaller films like you well actually with the but that Eddie Murphy movie dolomite is my name got a comedy nomination so did very well they got seventeen nominations in movies they also got seventeen nominations in in television with shows like the crown which just happened just dropped in amazing affect the third season a few weeks ago with a brand new cast including Olivia Colman as the queen Tobias Menzies as prince Philip and Helena Bonham Carter as the sister princess Margaret all three of those got globe nominations as well so they love that there is that a show that a lot of people milling would be familiar with called unbelievable it was a limited series true crime drama that's had a mirror weaver and Toni Collette played detectives and Kaelin beaver a young girl who was sexually assaulted and it dealt with this serial rapist is really just a great series but didn't get a lot of buzz because to get swallowed by all the Netflix stuff this would popped out and got four nominations which is as many of the crown and the most nominated TV mini series which was Chernobyl on HBO so again in a lot there's so much TV nowadays it's hard for anything to pop through well yes I heard you mention that more than once there is just an awful lot of television these days so that's pretty much the way it it what it comes down to to hear so what are you looking forward to see what's coming up what's new on the radar is there anything new on the radar well not a lot new but I will tell you one thing that is if you're watching TV this week in what if one of your habits of the watch wheel of fortune along with jeopardy that you're gonna notice the Pat Sajak is nowhere to be seen on the set of they're going into their big winner promotion they called the secret Santa give away and Vanna white is stepping in for Pat Sajak this the next week these episodes were filmed while he was recovering from a domino surgery and she's in a guest once before at least but but and then the many many years they've done the show but to have her doing the Pat Sajak they'll be startling for people if they didn't know this happened with those episodes airing this and next week and the Paley this budget Disney characters on the set as well because of the Disney promotion so I don't know what that means group is going to turn over letters or what it was in late night you know we were back in the days of Johnny Carson there used to be you know guest hosts were pretty much of a regular thing with the take a vacation they let celebrities coming together so the almost never see that anymore but for

I've served on it so there you go how where where we own the podcast that is insane. It's let's talk about average. Andy love averaging average. Andy initially was a writers idea. Yeah man they even had the theme song. Give Troy's idea and b.j wrote the the theme song and still get the residual every time we use it. Wow does he really twelve dollars. That's amazing to keep doing it just for be well. I think we might have done our last episode. I Yeah I think tennis was good. I met with you better at stuff. We could stop as your average just trying the help you. This is going to be an endless wrong. Sean our staff pitches average. Andy ideas they sure do and then we pitch them into. Andy and he rejects nine out of ten. Even the truth is he rejects all of them and then a couple of them were able to talk him back into and invariably when when he does them I would say maybe not every time but most times he's happy that he did it when it's all over and in this case we wanted him to go to the US open to play I tennis with some of the greatest tennis players on earth. Yep and he wasn't really sure he wanted to put himself in that position no and then he went and he had a fantastic time didn't you yes I. I ended up having a good time because reading about it right now. No I ended up having a good you know I I was nervous because tennis is not really my sport. What is your sport. That's a good question but I ended up being sort of more than participating in it. What I like to do is watch. People who are really gifted really gifted at something and so that's cool is to be around them but he's he andy in his anxiety is is very self off deprecating but he's also really funny and so he just spontaneously very funny so pain in a moment that happens in the tape piece yes that wasn't planned for that. The writers didn't right but happened and was one of the biggest laughs at the whole thing. Your pants fell down yeah well. What happened is when you you watch the piece. You're not watching it. Necessarily in the order that things happened but basically what happened was we were supposed to do the playing tennis portion at a certain time and then suddenly I I was told Oh my God we're doing the tennis now and I jump into some thing that they make me change in and I throw everything on not knowing that those pants chance had lace that you need to tie. I pulled them up like gym shorts. They would've microphoning what could make that mistake. I run around around and the shorts took a little bit of a fall. Thank God you're wearing some sort of Spanish word. Let's throw provides me with some SORTA. SORTA spank show that was like a full girdle. I didn't know what was worse. That's why I was like. We're not using this use came down. I'm also wearing some some sort of compression. You look some sort of professional. Learning other may have worn in the fifties yeah so oh my Gosh God. It's a great piece was really really funny but here's a little clip of Andy Being Andy and and then you should go to your DVR and check it out on the show because it's really really fun I hi how are you took that twenty three and me tests you know the DNA thing and it said this is true that I had the same makeup as an elite athlete Asman so my question to you. I don't play tennis but if I started right now once a week for an hour how long till I could play in something like this in a tournament Jordan Mike. What would it be unfortunately really yeah so we need to do congratulations on winning. Wimbledon thank you. That's a huge deal.

'The Kitchen' cooks up a half-baked mob drama
"Frank gonna start off with a Melissa McCarthy film called the kitchen almost everyone has been anything but have babies two men have forgotten what family means so we remind now a few minutes ago we were talking about Melissa McCarthy awhile she's generally known for and a silly comedies she's actually a pretty good actress what about this movie yeah she is a pretty good actor she was in a film last year of live action and and the powerful drama will you ever forgive me in which she played a an author who got into trouble for faking biographies of people this is another drama and she's good in it Tiffany had issues in it too a comedian whose turn to dramatic acting this is about three wives of mob figures in nineteen seventies New York who take over the protection of racquets after their husbands get sent to prison and they become powerful mob figures in hell's kitchen which is what the film is named after this is based on a comic book series actually and it's rather than being edgy and and very deep it's sort of pulp fiction trashy but it's kind of entertaining trash if you know what I mean it's it's not a terrible movie is not a terribly good and perceptive one either but McCarthy and had a sure very good and it is an excellent supporting class cast in it as well but you have to be ready to accept some pretty graphic violence in this movie this is not an easy movie to watch in some of the sequences so you should be forewarned about that it's a kind of a medium grade movie but if you're in the right frame of mind you might find it

Disney+ Will Reboot Four Fox Movie Franchises
"Us about disney's plans to boot several popular fox properties so disney snitch chief robert iger announced on an earnings call with investors that the studios developing several reboots and reimagining of fox's family friendly hits including being titles like home alone ninth museum dairy of wimpy kid and cheaper by the dozen and these reboots would be debuting on disney plus according to a new report from collider rider so these are fox's most recent <hes> family friendly hits apart from cheaper by the dozen which is actually slee remake in a ended of itself so and it seems like disney plus is building its titles original content to be largely reboots reboots in a sense <hes> and <hes> recognizable i._p. In addition to this there are also seeing some disney live action makes his animated films like lady and the tramp as as well as just the marvel and star wars titles but <hes> that seems to be the strategy that disney plus is going forward in the coming streaming wars. I mean that's kind kind of depressing isn't it that that disney acquired fox just to sort of push off some of these like remix fox properties onto disney plus yep <hes> they can't just have these <hes> these classics on their <hes> streaming platform as in the archives to slap the disney brand and on it and put a little twist up apparently <hes> the home alone reimagining for example would <hes> put a twist on the story and make it without a husband and wife could go to with a young boy who has stolen something from them so that's something along the lines of what will likely be seeing with these remakes interest. It's not even home alone yeah. What what a bizarre. That's like a yeah. It's a totally different concept. They could just make you know original movies themselves but you know you gotta have that i._p. I guess 'cause that's disney strategy and they're making a lot of money from it hub so brad. I was going to throw to you and say. Is there any hope that these projects addicts could be you know maybe better than we think and maybe not quite as crass as we're making them out to be but that particular <hes> synopsis or description of what they're planning to do with home alone get makes me even more worried than i was. You know thirty seconds ago do you do you even with that in mind do you. I think that there's any chance that these are going to be like worth seeking out or do you think it's just mining these properties for name recognition alone. I mean there's always a chance when it comes to stuff like this. I i've tried to be a little more understanding and less judgmental <hes> when it comes to remakes re boots. There have been some really good remake reboots. There've been some really bad remakes in reboots and so there's always a chance that they could figure something out. <hes> disney does have a lot of talented people working for for them and a lot of people who want to work for them so it wouldn't have their own possibility for you know some of these movies to work. I just wish that they would you know invest their time in making the things that really haven't been done yet or at least adapting more interesting stories that come from other you know media i see this slate the titles and i can't help but get frustrated that they scrapped the mouse guard adaptation which looked fantastic <hes> all in favor of doing you know more remakes like this so that is frustrating rating but i kind of just a wait and see scenario for me. I i don't know what to expect from the quality of these movies that will go into disney plus but i guess i'll will be hoping for the best a._t. Do we know any other like notable information about any of these particular projects or is it still too early to talk about casting and stuff like that. It's still a little too early <hes> home alone remake is a reboot is the one that we have the most information on apparently a brat scribe. Dan mazer is being i to direct the film while melissa mccarthy is reportedly being to star in it as one of the parents so so but other than that we don't know if that's settled yet

Good job. Well, sometimes Ellen tells. Don't come around far enough. Right. So it's, it's not it's not easy. There's an approach to scare people. Artist type. It's easy to be in a box, and pop up. See, I was going to say have the I have the easiest one because I can only see where I'm going right. Let these people are popping out. The person is. Only one place, so. Well, that's true.

Billy knew she was wasn't sanctioned by Billy. I don't think she was hankering for forty eight year old mother to be video, but it happened. We made it happen. Have you heard from her? I haven't somebody's I think she put it out. So I'm hoping that, that she's okay with it.

Melissa McCarthy has been using her stylist recommended CBD oil for her feet after all of the awards the awards shows her feet were really really killing her and her stylist said, well, we just have to start using CBD oil on your feet, and so she's been using CBD on her sheep. Well. It became a featured segment on one of the morning shows this week where all the experts that they interviewed. Including many of your colleagues with with all due respect that said there's no evidence. This is absolutely at field that we just don't know enough about we need to have more evidence. It may sound good. But I couldn't believe that a major network. I would even say that at this point in time about the Canada. Dial portion the CBD the non high version of this plant, and I'd love for you to comment on that. Yeah. I mean, look granted there there. There is an EPA thicken amount of evidence. At the fact of the matter is it better work expect when it comes to muscular pink. He'll for multiple hours at a time. The muck are gonna hurt and. Been shown very affected force back. Tippety specifically in patients who have multiple imagine just have severe the cramping gives that they experience. Yes. Something like that. It's not certainly affected for for some cramping that you have in your heat treated, thousands of patients at this point. And for me. Know that the evidence is very obvious that my patients have experienced I I have to tell you have after doing this show for over two years. Now, I absolutely agree with you. But I also think that there is evidence we have been studying this plant for a very long time. Other countries are leaders and pioneers, as you all know as you are as you know, Dr. In Spain leading pioneers, Israel. Oh my gosh. They the forerunners in Israel. They are truly the pioneers. So we do have some studies. We do have evidence. We do have clinical. This is not just take this. This is also it is a lot of it is anecdote, but the question becomes who. Do you trust with the information, and it's very confusing when? Information is put out there. That's not correct. Yep. I agree with you. And it's actually important because it's an onion regulated industry. So anybody can you out any crap out of their mouth, and you know, there there's no one to say that hey that wrong or there's no one out there to regulate what they're saying. Okay. You have to turn to have knowledge and experience in the field, right knowledge faith on on research and experience from actually tweeting people your particular condition, and with move particular symptom the other area where what's important to go to knowledgeable company is in the quality of the product. Obviously product that you're purchasing. Yes. Show that seventy percent. New product little does. Could be buying overpriced bottle of Oliver coconut oil, and and and and get no effect from it. But that's another area where you've, you know advocates swimming is willing to pay attention because it's not a regulated industry. Okay.

Oscar nominations 2019 predictions: From A Star is Born to Roma
"Eight. I saw green book most recently, which I thought was great that may end up being my pick to to win the best picture. You've seen all best picture movies except for Roma. So you've got Black Panther black klansman bohemian rhapsody, by the way, Adam Lambert and Queen are going to perform Sunday, that'd be cool. That'll be really lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper performing. Which will also be cool. You really cool the favorite green book Romo rumour, aroma. Tony Romo model a star is born and vice. And who you picking unpicking green book to win because I think it made you feel the best and it was well done a period piece based on a true story, Rome. I think is getting a lot of a lot of buzz too. But maybe the director Affonso who also I think one best picture for gravity in our best director in two thousand thirteen for gravity Black Panther, which I know dragon scene for sure is definitely the best of all the marvel movies ever made. And it's interesting because it was such a big deal about their cast being all black the director and writer Ryan Kugler African American and so I'm surprised that he wasn't nominated for best director as well, Spike, Lee. This is his fifth nomination for best director. He's never one. But I'm picking green book to win that wouldn't be surprised if Roma does I loved bohemian rhapsody. But you remember when it came out, and we talked about they took some liberties with the story joke that Freddie Mercury doesn't die of aids in the movie because I remember making that joke. They changed a bunch of stuff around in that movie. Why did you read the bio and Freddie Mercury? I talked to friends that have seen it the no a lot more about Queen and the timetable with how the movie plays out and how he got in the band and stuff, but it's an entertaining movie. What's the best movie you've seen this year because I'm picking green book to win? I haven't seen any of them, by the way. So I got nothing. Oh. Yeah. Set a best picture you haven't seen Black Panther either. No. But are you a superhero movie guy? No, not at all. No. I I haven't seen any of those. I'm gonna say that I I like bohemian rhapsody a lot and I'm not a huge Queen fan. But I really liked it. But I'm gonna go with the stars four stars born it was it was really really I think the biggest reason reasonable win. Cathy, is that it's already been this is the fourth. They've done this story. I know that they've tweaked it. I didn't lady Gaga is gonna pull the upset for best actress, I hope so I you know, it really really made me like lady Gaga put her in a total different category fro. Yes. She's fantastic. A great singer. But you know, I I like her music, but I never put her like on this pedestal you've tried to act not try you weren't actor try. That's a bit of a stretch. But yeah, but the point is imagine the first real you ever play you get nominated for an Oscar, and I get that she's playing a struggling musician, and she can easily identify with that and go back to what it took to get discovered and all of that. And and you know, toiling in nothing jobs hoping for that break, but to execute that onscreen, and she was she was the best part of the movie by far Bradley Cooper is really good. But I hope she wins. Even though Glenn Close, it's seven nation. She's never one. So she could be a lifetime achievement kind of winner. If you will she's phenomenally talented, she s I don't know. But I liked Ramey. Malik as I think he's going to go. I mean, he did a great impersonation. So let's go actor in a leading role, you got Christian bale? Vice Bradley Cooper, a star is born Willem Defoe at eternity gate. Remmy Romney Malik bohemian rhapsody Vigo Mortenson green book, jussie smollet for the Chicago hope. Very funny. Avi next next year. He'll get one for that bright. Yeah. Like when Golden Globes. Yeah. So that it plus you're combining acting and singing did he really singing. Oh, okay. So we he was acting like a cigarette. Huber really saying. Yeah, he did having Adam Lambert seeing at the goal K, so okay. And at the Oscars, maybe Bradley Cooper, then because he's singing and acting and this is any directed it. This is Bradley Cooper's forced nomination as an actor, and he's never won Christian bale. One once Willem Dafoe. This is his fifth nomination. He's never won. And I don't I know Vigo Mortenson hasn't won. And certainly Rami Malik first nomination. Still picking me Malik to win. I thought he was great. Actress in a leading role you have low LIZA appereciation from Roma. You have Glenn Close. Everybody knows here from the wife Livia Coleman from the favorite lady. Gaga stars born Melissa McCarthy, can you ever forgive him in a more serious turn not a not a comedic role. She's awesome. The best lady Gaga for that. I think it's upset Glenn Close as the heavy favorite. But I'm I'm pulling a lady Gaga upset as my pick feel like Glenn Close because she's been around. So long performance is great. And then maybe it's like her turn kind of thing. Maybe and, but they did it lady Gaga's gonna keep acting and have another shot seems far-fetched at this point. Right. So is leader thirty. So, but how come Bradley Cooper, gene, get a directing because he did for American sniper? So that's about those are the biggies right there. Yeah. Supporting actor and actress, Marcia Lee who is in green book, I bet you. He wins a second. You don't want to talk about making hairstyling best animated feature. Incredible to come on. I don't know about best editing. The spider verse hairstyling best song song about best picture. Or did. We did that already songs. Best. The song. Okay. What are your choices? I don't see all the stars Black Panther. I'll fight RV g the place where lost things go. Mary. Poppins returns. Shallow. A star is born when a cowboy change Spurs for wings, the ballot BUSTER Scruggs, and that's different from original score original scores of music throughout the movie right songs. I think it'll be almost impossible. For lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper not to win. I think they win. Okay. We're we're out of time. I'll watch part of it. Yeah. It's like a four hour show. Four hours. It's hard to it gets here. It's one of my favorite my favorite nights of the year. I used to always do with my mom. That guy picks. I'm that guy. I have a couple of friends getting together to watch the show. I get it. I mean, if you watch I haven't seen all the movies. I wait to watch him on the Denver Broncos play. Year later used be all the movies. It'll be of several of these. Oh, I gave did your wife end up watching bohemian a couple times guide and really liked.

"A lot of those questions are answered in the longer video that is available out there. You can see it. It's about two hours worth it shows what was happening before this little showdown between these two the high school student in the native American and different group. Also, the black Hebrew Israelites. In fact, it's one member of that group whose video sort of a more complete picture of what was happening there. Nathan Phillips was the elder with the Mahad tried and he was there with a drum as part of the end digital indigenous peoples demonstration was happening outside the Lincoln Memorial. Nick Sanmen with Covington Catholic high school. Was there waiting for a bus with his classmates? They had been at the national right to life March show was going on. And then the black Hebrew Israelites rolling protests there outside the Lincoln Memorial to.

The one that generated so much controversy, but it doesn't necessarily told the whole story. Greg.

Can You Ever Forgive Lee Israel?
"I came across this letter in a collection with the signature of one of my favorites, the writer and wit, Dorothy Parker and the letter is so her eighty three Norma place Hollywood, California, the Joshua Allen told me to write an apologize. I'm doing that. Now while he dresses for Turkey dinner with the boys across the road. I have a hangover that as a real museum piece. I'm sure that I must have said something terrible the year this kind of exertion in the future. I'm thinking of having little letters runoff saying can you ever forgive me? Dr. Except that Dorothy Parker didn't actually write or sign that letter Lee Israel, did her book called can you ever? Forgive me tells the story of her years as a literary con-artist forging letters by all sorts of famous writers, then selling the memoir was just Apted into terrific new film, also called can you ever forgive me. It stars Melissa McCarthy as Israel. This. One line. Here was particularly clever. Don't you think it's wonderful. I love his writing and Dorothy Parker's while caustic wit. Caustic wit is my religion. With the film. Now in theaters I wanted to revisit my conversation with the real Li Israel. She died in two thousand fourteen but I talked to her when her memoir came out in two thousand eight so that isn't by Dorothy Parker at all. Well, there's one line the best line. Can you guess which it is? That's really Dorothy this have hangover that as a real museum piece. So the title of your book is from this purported letter by Dorothy Parker, but it's a real realign. Yes, I imagine Dorothy apologizing her waif-like way for some misdeed, and and I sat down, and I wrote it's in the spirit of kind of Judah spree. So how did you get the idea for this this racket of forging famous people's letters and selling them to dealers started? It was incremental as most things are in life. I I was in the library where I spent most of my time foraging, and they gave me a group. Of of letters. And I thought perhaps even one or two of those could pay for from Mike my kitties tests, and I shoot it. I took it a walked out of the library. And I sold it. I was told by the the woman who bought my letters that which I didn't know anything about the business, but she would pay more for better content. So I went home, and I typed up some better content. And then when you started forging after that instead of stealing what was the first thing before actually, I don't remember where I started. I have a feeling let me think I know it wasn't. I think of the first things I fought would know account letters and you bought not just one but a whole series of antique typewriters on which to do. We'll finally if I had knoll type on one typewriter Dorothy on another and and EDNA Ferber on yet another and Finally I had about six or seven of them in locker I rented on Amsterdam have Aminu looked like a very classy porn shop, but his pawnshop not a porn shop. Not a foreign chef. And it's amazing. How little regulation there is. I mean, for instance, the Noel coward letters, some of them were published in an anthology of his correspondent. That's right recently in highly regarded, well, reviewed book, cool, the letters of no coward. And they were two of my lettuce showed up in that volume. Can we hear one of your letters? Okay. Gotta find it. All right. I'll just this. Dear Kevin Sunday. And at the the letterhead as lays of all sumo shoes. Pardon my French, dear Kevin, I who doesn't exist. I am feeling years younger having lose this morning over perfectly packed snow. There is no substitute for oxygen in the lungs. It seems to release something very like morphine Marlene Marlene as perhaps mentioned to you. When we spoke was here for almost two week. She will never change in Detroit a four service folly, she moans endlessly about the ravages of aging the betrayal of friends the lonely. Of celebrity the Silio crowd addresses each of these problems, if she were the only beautiful and celebrated creature to experience reversals, I intend to have her in my life until one of us crooks, but she is possibly the most June grandmother in the history of our planet. It's a very good thing that I love her. I laughed uproariously at show dog dog arrow yours ever know flea. Israel's version of no account, and they were among the best letters. I think of his well what you don't I'll tell you why? Because he Kurt guess he didn't have to be knoll coward. When he wrote letters. He was writing letters. I had to try hard. I had to be no coward. And so they were lay will cavorted they camped they jumped high jet Jade around. I mean, he didn't write letters like that. I was I was doing it to please dealers and to do an imitation of disturbed sick man who didn't have to try to be no coward. How did you? Did you have to try to get into character? How much did? Immerse yourself in their work. Did you put on a hat like they were support yourself drink? What did you do? I'd never put myself drink because who was it who said John Cheever that old womanising alcoholic said even Sipa Sherry shows in his prose. So I never I never drank. When I ride I just I immersed myself in that wonderful thing that happens grade of people kind of trance the creative transits it's as good as it gets. We'll have more of my interview with Lee Israel in just a minute. But first I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to follow us on Twitter and Instagram at studio three sixty show. And now back to the podcast now, let's let's rewind before you ever got into this. You were of successful bog refer when I was in my early thirties. I wrote a book about Dorothy Kilgallen, I wrote a book about to Lula Bankhead. I did finally book that wasn't so good about Estee Lauder after the Lord of book, my lights dimmed a bit, and they stopped taking me to Lynch, and and you were on welfare. And and it was it was really rough. It wasn't. It wasn't just that. You were no longer a bestseller. What is rough? I mean, I wasn't eating roots and Niger, but in terms of my life. It was bad. It was I was alone. She was alone. And you and you had a sick cat as well. I had. Sick the romance of the whole thing, and how much did you get for that those? I I think the forty dollars a piece something like that. So it wasn't a lot of money per letter. Forty bucks, forty bucks. Allowed me to take my cat to the vet and find out baby. What was wrong with her? It was enough to keep me as I say finally in in lunch and cigarettes and rent. It was not a lot of money in terms of the letters you forge a part from the marketability of a given author or figure how how did you choose who you wanted to do? I've been thinking about that. I I know that I have certain hide certain criteria which had to be bet they the signature mostly had to be doable, easy, so EDNA, for instance, EDNA Ferber or some EDNA Ferber. She signed her letters with a period. Very simple writing. No, no loops. No swirls. No, no were jumps. Same thing. Knowles was a little harder. Dorothy, Parker had an easy signature. They had to present a challenge to me. They had to have literary epistolary styles that I thought I could duplicate and have fun doing. And I guess those are the criteria fun is interesting to me because they are also nearly all sort of swan. You naughty, people of a certain period and certain certain habits with alcohol and certain age, which meant that if I shook a little in the signature, it wouldn't tell so much, but they would all you. No, one would want to go to the cocktail party with all most of these people all of them, maybe EDNA Ferber. I was gonna say. How many letters did you right now? I think about four hundred really, yeah. You can see you can see as we sit. There's a loosely with copies basically two or three a week for the three years something like that. I guess I didn't you do the math. I did. I did whatever I needed to do them. There was one deal in New Hampshire who would call and say, do you have something Greta Garbo will have you something which George q-car is mentioned. Now, I always satisfied is demands that what did he think I mean, really? And where would you say? Yeah. Maybe I do I have a feeling maybe they may be in the country. You know, like I had a country home. I'll check and I o. I always I wasn't. I not even smart enough to say, oh, no. I couldn't I always was eighty ninety one hundred dollars. Ed was the Noel coward letters that finally done me in because I overdid and because one of the one of his friends who was in the market to buy Noel coward. That is was shown some of mine in new. Full. Well, that know having lived at a time when homosexuality was jailing offense never would've put so many campy funny allusions in his letters and the stuff that's homoerotic etcetera. I got from his his diaries, but Noah would have been much too careful to disclose his. I did what happened. Finally is that one. Once the man friend of Knowles discerned that there was something rotten in Denmark. He told the dealer who told other dealers and finally the well was toxic, and I could no longer sale. And then as soon as the the federal agents showed themselves didn't arrest you mmediately. You went off trying to thinking we're going to get rid of the typewriters destroy the guy rid of everything I could get my hands on scissored everything. I I took the typewriters from the locker one by one and they were very heavy. You know, we're talking nineteen forties. Nineteen fifties at I place them up and down various trash receptacles on Amsterdam avenue. So you were you were. Finally nabbed prosecuted went to trial. You got off pretty easy. I did. Well, I had I got six months house arrest, which is not so easy. If you saw my apartment at the time, not only did you not go to jail. You you have this lovely book. That's come out. That is getting good reviews and kind of kind attention, nobody that I've seen seems to be saying how dare this thief and forger getaway with this. I know, and I'm really, but I I have a knowledge that what I did was was wrong. But I don't I don't feel that in the pit of my stomach the bloggers not being so so kind blinders do, yeah, I know one of them called twit, and I hope he spelled it right? Somebody else called me, an intellectual terrorist. I beat so that happens, but mostly the the community of writers and not so much scholars of writers. And peers of of a liking it and are being very kind to me non-judgmental. I know what I did was for honest, Ana.
"melissa mccarthy" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Guys, Willie Geist back with you for another episode of the Sunday sit down podcast. Thanks so much for clicking on us and I subscribe ingwer every get your podcast. Getting full uncut interview here in the Sunday. Sit down the interview. We play NBC on Sundays, run seven or eight minutes. Here we give you all of it half hour forty, five minutes, whatever you want. And today it is Melissa McCarthy out with a new movie life of the party. So fun to talk to because I don't think a lot of people fully understand where she comes from you kind of picked her up around Mike and Molly maybe or maybe bridesmaids. Maybe it was Gilmore girls depending on how far along you are in her career, but she started growing up on a soybean farm in Plainfield Illinois about forty miles outside Chicago. It's a long journey from there to where she is now, Forbes magazine just put her number four in terms of the most bankable stars of two thousand seventeen in Hollywood, not bad. She, you know, came to New York as you'll hear with thirty five bucks. I think she says, thirty five dollars in her pocket at twenty years old had no idea what she was doing. Just rolled into town. And now she's one of the most famous people on the planet. So we're gonna talk right now to the great Melissa McCarthy. We got together in the rainbow room here at thirty. Rockefeller plaza upstairs, a legendary room. Just the two of us in a big empty ballroom. We had in front of us some tea. She likes tea and a Makarova macaroni is it's that kind of dry fancy look in cookie that some people enjoy. We're gonna talk right at the beginning about whether or not people actually do enjoy that and whether or not we actually enjoy that. So please enjoy this Sunday, sit down interview with Melissa McCarthy, talking about her new movie life of the party at the rainbow room at Rockefeller Center will thank you for meeting me again for usual Wednesday morning breakfast, date in an empty rainbow room. Say morning guys. I said, I know we need crystal because I know you love it. So. I wish we did meet here. Everyone's funny. Downs, real quiet, and we just, we just have tea in cookies. We don't like don't touch the macaroni with mirrors and gold behind us opulent I always think, and it works like a charm because I think, oh, it's too much. And then you're like, wow, there's just look at all the spark that I started. I'm, you're going to be happy. It's a very sparkley varies Berkeley, very sparingly. So I wanna talk mostly about miss wide, but we'll get to that in just a minute. Oh, god. Before we get to miss wind your time in New York, let's talk about life of the party. Let's feels to me like a Melissa sort of classic big character, funny loud self-confident more than maybe she should be. That's just me. It's something about it really hits like hits my heart, right? I mean, I think. The character played Dina's is kind of based on my mom who I really do think it's like this, like marzipan figuring that just kinda makes everybody feel good and and tries her best even if it's not. You know, she's not the most topical meaning. Well, probably my mom or my character, but there's such a sweetness to it, and I just thought. I wanted to show like a mom and daughter relationship where the daughter was always, you know, rolling her eyes and the mom wasn't a nightmare. And they just think you don't always see that. And I have such a good relationship with my mom and I don't know. I know so many people that have great relationships. I'm like, why is it every time you see a mother daughter, you know, the daughter was like, hates her mom, and then the mom's just like such a train wreck. And Mike, maybe there's a middle ground where you know you can actually show that they love each other and it's still funny and it's not Sacranie, but like I just, I don't know. I kind of love how sweet and hopefully funny this movie. It's such a cool setting to do it in because it certainly circumstance where the daughter would roll her eyes. Her mom joined her. Yeah, college, it's jarring. I mean, what's funny is Ben, it was Benn's idea which I just absolutely wrote his coat tails. And he came down and said, you know, he was watching my dad together, and he was like, what was sandy? Like your age? And then when she was that age, how will you and somehow made his mind like drift into college and he's from Cal, he grew up in a college town, so. He loves a campus urban, do Carbondale. Salukis guys Egyptian running dog I guess. Twenty five people in southern how dare you? Sorry, gang and he kind of drifted off like in. That's where the the kind of, you know,
