"I would say almost everybody says these are great films that Spike Lee's best films that's David ventures masterpiece. American history x is still being cited. These all those films did poorly at the box office. They were underwhelming initial releases and and they none of the American history x you you know got nominated but the but most of them were fight. Club never was even in the awards conversation not even remotely. Nobody believed neither. Were twenty fifth hour right but you you you what you come to understand is that is that in this world. We're living in films. have an incredible capacity to ultimately get to people and they form their own relationship with people and yes it would be nice if something other than DC marvel. Comic Characters Somehow motivated the investment to sell movies at broad scale scale or or brought people out in large numbers. But at a certain point. You've gotta like separate yourself from that agenda you've got to recognize it's and this I. Martin Scorsese said eloquently and very generously. He wasn't he wasn't negating anyone else's pleasure in a certain kind of thing what you're saying. Is that for him. The experience that he wants to have of original unpredictable complexity emotional complexity complexity of character. That these these things you have to in your mind recognized that these things can coexist point about room in the theaters is I think is a very good one but but they can coexist we can have mass entertainment. But but you have to calibrate your expectations when you make this kind of work and part the reason I made it for such a modest cost is i. Don't want the pressure of you know making like Ben Affleck made live by night which is a very fine film when you make it one hundred twenty million dollars. You create the potential for catastrophe financial catastrophe right now. If you make the film the way I made made it you can have a very modest box office theatrical outcome and still do quite fine You know what I mean. And that's important I. I think that's what we're light at. The end of that tunnel is to that. Movies can be rediscovered. They have a shelf. Life by cub is the perfect example of that to me. Nobody would believe how that was treated when it came out. Critics were really tough. Love me no you know but the fact is that you were you you. I've said this before but it's not it's not be puffing but you write a rolling stone and I think the reason that rolling stone and in my view there's a vitality to it because rolling stones ethos and your ethos has always been I think to seek Zeitgeist guys right to look for what what is what is going on. In the way people are feeling about the culture they're living in and and it's not it wasn't just rock and roll like it's always been about like making sure what's what's giving people a sense of identification you know and the reason reason the reason you understood fight club and celebrate it is because you saw in it. It's capacity to let people see themselves. You know you knew that people a lot of young people feel these things and that is something humorous and dark but mostly that. There's a that that that it was observing as much as the graduate was in its day. It's observing mind. It's observing the tension. The young people feel about becoming almost almost ahead of its time. Rolling Stone is is does put music which is different energy. Brought me this and I'm grateful Thom Yorke. I don't know how you got him. Basically do this for your movie. Because he doesn't just say sure no the music that he put in motherless Brooklyn and what's there's is another energy that people relate to then this is fun it's This old school. It's a vinyl forty five of Tom. I'm Tom and flee the version. They did Tom Song. And then on the B side is the Wynton Marsalis beautiful version from that From from from ago which are both in the film but those are both things I love. Jazz was right for fifty s ten. But that's also I love that music and I think if there was ever a music. That has a terrific kind of quality. I liked it. It's it yeah pop jazz you know what I mean and I think that it also so has disincentive and Tom. You know great musicians like Tom who have explored dissonance and fracture in their music. They you you know. Tom Loves Charles. mingas right who was a great jazz innovator in terms of looking at atonal and ARRHYTHMIC dissonant you know explorations flirtations in this great. How would feed into your character? Everything that's happening and it just works. It has an energy to it. Yeah and I think there are lots of people by the way Tom Laughing. There's lots of people we you know there are some people who hear Tom's voice and radiohead fans and they know immediately. That's Thom Bjork. But we've had quite a few people we showed this in Atlanta and this this African American lady in her fifty s came up to me and she goes she goes. Who was the woman singing that beautiful? You know what I mean like. And she's like how that was like the Modern Day Billie holiday or something. I was like well. Her name is Tom but her name is that I talked to but but that's great to me that's great. I love if if it if it has a tonality and some people don't and they say like wow these things go together it shows you that you can make personal work and there are people people be responsive to it. You know I have to take a couple of questions from the outside of digital bring up bring it here. It is Mr Norton. Oh my goodness yeah. It's like you're on sack. Is there a director actor that you haven't had the chance to work with but you most likely to well I should. I should this film to Sean Penn the other night because he's always been one of those artists. Yes I'd I would act in one of his films. I would love to direct them in a film I would love to just act with him in a film because I think Sean has retained a very unique personal sense of his own own artistry and vitality and Yeah I'd love to work with Sean. And he he's had to tough it out to do that to Meryl Streep I Meryl Streep I would kill to work with street well Maryland you hear that. Let's do it all right one more one more. Let's see what this Abbey says. Do you ever find yourself humming songs from dentists MUCCI. I love you I do. Abby is a person who tastes tastes. That's all I have to say. The the answer is yes and you have great taste. Well you know that we always end the show and song. I did not know that well you forget but that's it.

What songs in your head right now? What what's He? The funny thing is what's in my head. I can't sing. 'cause Tom and I can't do Marcellus trumpet. So there's a there's a in the theme of motherless Brooklyn Clem. I'll say this you can go out on this in the motherless theme. It's this it's this really lovely. Like bub-bubba bub-bubba Ma up up which kind of reminded me remember the Great Michael Nyman scores? Yeah Michael Nyman one of the really underappreciated film composers like the end of the affair. Great Film scored you remember that do repent beautiful piano film score like that. There's work on this. The Daniel Pemberton did that reminded me some ways of the best of Michael Nyman but but in that one wins Horn comes in wins horn entrance on that. I'll stack that up against any piece of music. The composition that we go out that anymore. Yeah but I got laid off so the trumpet..

"Press office Super Bowl, or you know, pretty pretty reasonable year before last the Sixers the process come into fruition. Can you describe trying to see the best way to ask you this Ryan just kinda describe where the Phillies fit in in that city fabric relationship with you know, where you got the flyers in their history and broad street bullies in the Sixers an eagles. What's the Phillies role in in that city sports? It's it's sports theme. Yeah. I mean, that's a great question. You know, kind of dating back to you know, my time there with James and the rest of the crew kinda getting the the atmosphere turned around Philly was football town. Everybody was eagles eagles eagles. I mean, we'd be winning games. And you'd still be here. Eagles chance out in the middle of the stand. But it wasn't until. You know, we were able to kind of turn it around start to make the playoffs and taken from a from a football town to a baseball town. It's still very much a football town. So the town was very excited about when they won the Super Bowl as was I was able to go out to go check out the parade from a different standpoint. But where these guys fit in. Now, it's a very exciting time because you have the eagles that just recently came off of a Super Bowl victory. The Sixers in a position to continue success making it into the playoffs and hopefully going and making it to the NBA finals, you know, over a year and year out. And now, you have the Phillies that are on this upswing with signing Bryce, do you have resource because you have mccutchen who I think is going to have a big turnaround year as well as Europe and Franko is looking like he's off to a great start as well. So those guys kind of slide into that that mix of excitement to wear kind of piggybacking off the six. If they can do. Well, people are very excited to to see what these guys are going to be capable to do and have one of the best baseball players in the game their night in a night out. Former National League MVP former Phillies world champion and current ESPN. Major league baseball analyst Ryan Howard joins on the Mike ESPN radio. Harper's homerun was four hundred sixty five feet, and according to stack cast it was his second longest in his career. What was Ryan Howard's longest home when he was with the Phillies. Oh, man. Do you know they were they were still. I'm not sure offhand. I think there was one debatable up around five hundred. I went to the third day. I think I think at some point Bryce will get one in that third day in right field. So that was one of a one of the further ones. I think that was that was it, and we'll definitely go over the batteries, right? I wonder Ryan like baseball the first sport I played when I started like five years old. So I don't like the sport is much today. Just for some other reasons, but hitting a home run with the best feelings in the world. Like, it's like Dunkin on somebody in a basketball game is like running over dude on your way to a touchdown in football. Really big hit on a quarterback. There's these moments in the sport that resume like that way. You've done all that. Yeah. Man. I. I know who I'm dealing with. Right. He out here. Talking speaking from experience all of the above UPS you Bo Jackson. Hit a home run. Somebody trucks and also had a holy one. Y'all y'all gonna talk about anything else? Ooh. Okay. Did you win? Bundy on the radio, we never have bikes. Kentucky. But for for you ride make Greenwich, I've never competed never close your level. But when you when you crush one, and you know, soon as you hit a pure crushed. How long did you watch it before it went out or were you do to try to keep your head down you circle the base as long as possible because the game has changed now dues flap in? That crawl over the over the centerfield wall now. Yeah. I mean, you you when I was coming up you couldn't do as much as what the guys were doing now. But yeah, I would I would definitely give it a little look. Yeah. I'd stay there. Maybe a couple couple of seconds. Maybe walk down three or four steps. And then go ahead and start running. But I mean, there was the where you when you hit it. You had to admire it, I mean, one one or two balls that I hit to the third day at citizens Bank park. I'm look, man. That's that wasn't my fault. I gotta I gotta take this in and just kind of admired for a little bit because you become a fan. And you know, if it's the pitchers don't like it. And that's what I like about today's game is they're they're allowing these guys to express themselves a little bit. I mean, obviously, you want to be able to celebrate every other sport. You can celebrate you can bunk on a guy yelling his face football. You got the team celebrations now. So I mean, I think you should be able to kind of celebrate the fact if you hit a home run or a pitcher strikes a guy out in a big moment, they should be able to let that emotion out and bring it because it's called the show for reasons still be respectful for me. I was kinda guy got punched me out and taught me I kept it in the game to where I was like, okay. I'll see you next time. If I get you believe I'm having a parade around the bay exactly as you should Ryan Howard. Join us here on the Mike eaves and Smith one one subject, I didn't want to broach with you Ryan encouragement from wrong, you went through arbitration, correct? That is correct. All right. One year one year. Exactly what I thought. So you saw the story. I'm sure a resale believes in the athletic that there's this championship belt that major league teams been passed around to each other who does the best job during arbitration when they consider best job. It's mean, keeping salaries down as much as possible when you heard that having gone through the process yourself and went understand, it could be a very demeaning process is they're trying to basically tell you ain't trash, and that's why we ain't gonna pay you. But when you heard this, what came to mind. I mean business. That's the thing that gets lost in it all is that the one thing you have to understand as the player is this is a business. I my talent is going to go out there and get paid. And when it comes to that the teams are trying to get more for less, and that's just that's just business. I mean, that's how it all is. That's how you know a lot of people want. You know, you want that you want that Louis Vitton at that, Costco, wholesale price. You know what? I mean, you don't if you don't have to why have to go out there and go pick for it. So it is a it is crazy process. It's you know, it's it's a very interesting process at how the team does kind of tell you like, hey, look, we see where you think you're valued here. But we don't think your value there. And they'll go in there and say all this stuff about you your side, we'll say all this stuff. And then at the end of it. It's like, hey, no hard feelings. Let's go get them this year. You still got to go out there and throwing the uniform so. I mean, that's just a matter of the teams just trying to do businesses as usual. I think it's just. To your point, right? That to me is. I just don't get it. Twisted. You know, like. To paraphrase a quota, Eddie Murphy and forty eight hours. You know, we partners Wayne brothers and Wayne friends like this isn't a partnership as much as they might try to sell you on it. And then this is this goes across the board. Michael Nyman talking about this for a couple of days that's across the board. I don't understand how any working person in two thousand nineteen. It cannot be pro labor and pro player now, I take it back. I can't understand. It is a number of reasons for that a jealous envy, jealousy, cultural, bigotry, racism, all of it. Whatever it is. But at the end of the day like this is so universal like these people are not your friends like they're not they're not in this for this to be mutually beneficial. They're trying to win. And I was disgusted by this story. I was I it wasn't surprising. But it disgusted me nonetheless. They would trivialize correct. Somebody's livelihood to the point of passing around a belt as if they're. And this is coming from me Ryan, you know, you might know me a little bit. So there's gonna be real rich coming for me. It was it was extra extra geeky. Nerdy goes real. Yes, we really compete really competing pass. A championship. Mike ryan. Let me ask you that. Right. Can you stick around for a little bit more? You gotta go. No. Yeah. I'm good. You, sir. Let's keep Ryan Howard here because I want to get into a little bit more this as well. Because it's that very thing. Mike that bothered me about it as well. Ryan Howard here on the Mike Smith ESPN radio. The new.

"The the star is born lines are all in the trailer. The all you gotta do is trust me. I just wanna take another look at you. Like that is how you. Make trailer. And that is why stars did number two beautiful. Boy. This was a lot of people may may not have loved this trailer. I loved how it started out with the conversation between father and son. This is a nother trailer bolstered by an incredible track. It's called helicopter one by mog y. Magas done. Some awesome trailers over the years, including the the brave one with Jodie Foster music for that. So I just love the emotion that you can see the you can hear and see the desperation on Steve Carell face. And in his voice sounds like he's gonna lose his son. I love that. And then finally won't you be my neighbor. The Mr. Rogers documentary, again, another amazing track driving that trailer, which is Michael Nyman fish beach. Definitely check out that track on YouTube. I watched all these trailers today, and these happened to me my top three movies of the year, and that doesn't always line up because some gas. You get us you see a great movie that didn't have a trailer. But yeah, mister Rogers made me tear up today. Again, it's it is pretty sweet trailer. We're getting a lot of great comments on the Chattan right now that are extending to properties beyond the world of movies. Jay's got for real says, the red dead redemption to trailer special, and I'm seeing this comment a lot. So I'll give Chris Robinson former lead singer of the black Crowes credit the mortal combat eleven trailer. Have you seen the mortal combat eleven yes, strays nuts? Yeah. It's really good wants trailers for video. Oh, just whatever yourself. There's some Star Wars video game trailers that you're like I want to see that movie. Yeah. And they may be better than some of the Star Wars movies prequels looking to your direction. Let's go to trailers by the prequels for the Star Wars movies on my favorite of all time in a trailer. I like to build up tension. I like to start slow then I like it to just. Slowly us towards some epic climactic conclusion artists like to see monsters beat the crap out of each other for two minutes. So my first choice is going to be another trailer that debuted at comic on actually got to help. Usher it on stage. And that was glass. No less was just the first time we saw this. And I'm trying to avoid any sort of glass related materials since we're so close to the release of the movie, but getting to see this Sarah Paulson is looks like there's something else going on there. And then to see all three of these gentlemen in a room together. Who boy that'll knock your socks up? The second one is for the lion. King just I mean, I think that we're a little spoiled in today's ten washable and age you can have something like that all be technologically rendered. I mean, look at that thing it just knocked everybody on their ass at thanksgiving. Everybody was shown it was the best part of the Redskins Cowboys game for me. See the and just all the animals. They just look so realistic. I was just so thoroughly impressed by the lion. King even though I've already seen that footage day Twenty-three because that's how lucky fellow. I am I'm going big on The Lion King and then. The last one is one that I talked about how I like a slow Bill to burn to something that you're expecting your maybe something weren't even expecting something. You're still unsure of now need to pay for a ticket to go. See this movie to get the full scoop. That's what we got with hereditary hereditary that trailer just crate on your crawled on you. What's going on with this little girl? What's going on in this family? Toni Collette looks haunted in this movie and the movie paid off. So it's part of the reason why I have fond memories of hereditary the trailer. But the first time I saw that trailer. I was like this is something special. It helped this is one of those trailers where people already seen the movie by the time. This trailer is critical. They have all this critical acclaim. This is an ex exorcist this next all that..

But of course, he was an exile from Spain pipe because of Franken Britain, many reasons blasphemy, so he made the film in Mexico with some Mexican actors and place name is ever mentioned. It just a Coyote did uploaded NCI faith streets. But. One someone saying Madrid Mexico it would. So there is a slightly dreamlike. It's like a dream Spain or dream mix. But when you go outside and see the crowds gathering outside the house. It has a wonderful quality of carnival, which you you can sometimes get when they're terrible events, but a crowd gathers and then there's somebody selling not some on ice cream. And there's a guy with balloons answer. I love what happens when you're standing in the streets, and suddenly someone blouse out with a trumpet has an extraordinary effects. So I thought I'll see you can do if I put that into the peace. It's a it's a really it's a rollicking moments in in. What is you know, a pretty claustrophobic opera? Entertainment.

"That is how Michael Nyman begins his opera. The man who mistook his wife for a hat based on the book of the same name by Dr Oliver sacks.

It's a work for mezzo soprano orchestra and recorded voices, most notably the voice of Pook zone mother who had a nervous breakdown many years ago and and was treated with insulin. Shock therapy therapy. That is now largely discredited. Her great aunt was institute. Nationalized for decades. And she had a sister who died as a result of her mental illness. So Pook didn't have to look far field for source material. And in fact, when her great aunt died. She left behind a series of very unusual writings which provide the text for the singing. And then, of course, the the speaking is actual recordings. Pook made. She writes about her great aunt's writing that it is sometimes wonderfully poetic and often whimsical I would say the same thing about poops music Jocelyn Pook hearing voices. Two excerpts the first is called so funny. And the second is the doctor one of the delights about being mentally ill is is it's so funny..

Using the voices of some of the teenagers who've been placed into a system that seems not to be so good for their mental health. And the possibility of rehabilitation will hear some music as well from the English. Composer Jocelyn Pook mental illness runs in her family. And she recorded interviews with some of those family members about their experience of hearing voices. In fact, hearing voices is the name of her piece now, I should say that these these are not darkened depressing works that like Pink Floyd. There is something kind of uplifting and very human about the pieces that we'll be hearing. I'm John Shafer. Hope you'll stay with us for what will be even by our standards on. New sounds an unusual edition of the program. We'll begin with Michael Nyman, the English composer and his opera. The man who mistook his wife for a hat, based, of course, on the famous book of that name by Dr Oliver sacks who's great genius. I think was that he made the mentally ill human to us. When we read about these people we didn't reduce. Them to a mental deficit. We got to understand that they were real people that that doctor sax was talking about and writing about and that is what is going on in the opening of the opera the prologue which is subtitled neurology. Favorite term. Here is music by Michael Nyman to get us going on this edition of new sounds..

He's work changed the way. The Wall perceive fashion at the time offering something dark edgy and deeply personal but precious from his work and personal life would leave a lasting effect on this wounded artist. Nobody could create motion by the Queen. Ooh emotion than I'm not much of bubbly. I don't want you feeling like you've just had some lunch. I wanted to be repulsed exhilarated. As long as it's an emotion fourteen years the pressures men's level this slashing and sex and romance and the darkness sweet genius. He thought the system was against him can put everything into fashion design. There was definitely a change from having to become this sonal. This Alexander McQueen craft with a touch of McQueen's own flair. The film is beautifully made. The documentary draws on leased darkness to deliver innovative and creative methods to tell the story particularly the use of McQueen's skull and bird motifs similarly. Michael Nyman music is vital. A bold electrifying school. As the film progresses we he elite closest confidants share their memories of changes in their friend which would inevitably lead him down a path of destruction. Lee Alexander McQueen gave so much to the world of fashion pop culture and art McQueen exquisitely honors this legacy balancing the life of a troubled man and an autistic mastermind. This is one of the most impressive cinematic achievements of two thousand eighteen five stars. I'm so excited that you gave this movie five stars. I've been looking forward to this. Ever since it was announced Sydney and Melbourne Film Festivals. I think one of the things we have to take note of most of in this film is within context. This isn't the first fashion documentary to come out this year. It's not the last fashion documentary. That's going to come out this year. And Not just twenty thousand. Loin but it's one of many in the lost Fees alone like we've had just this year alone. We've had the gospel according to Andrei on. We've got the Vivienne Westwood documentary coming up only two years ago. We had the first Monday in. May which is documentary about the MIC gala. I'm just wondering where the thirst for fashion documentaries is coming from. Fashion has always been a huge part of society in general. I just wanted to why now I mean I've got to be honest with you. I mentioned this my review as well but I could imagine nothing worse than sitting through a documentary on fashioned most of the time but there was something about this film but truly grabbed my attention from from the moment. I sold the trailer. I knew that I had to go and see this film and I'm so glad I did because even though I had extremely high expectations God lives up to it. It is such a an awful well-crafted film and the thing I will say is. It does so well for somebody who comes from a background. Who knows nothing about fashion? Aw The label McQueen or anything like that. It's you can come in fresh. And be absolutely glued to that scream. It is so well crafted this film that honestly anyone could pick it up and just be fascinated and move by. That's a huge Kudos for any filmmaker regardless of same or subject or genre of somewhat of an outsider with someone who doesn't themselves a fan of that can just come in and guard. That was awesome. I wasn't interested but now I am. It's fantastic and for this incredible oddest that was Lee Alexander McQueen. It would have been such a task as well to translate his incredible fashion which just paces of ought onto a screen like that. That's a huge undertaking essentially. The film is broken up into five major chapters of his life. They call them chapters. But they're essentially five different shows that he puts on throughout his career and the specific mood and feel and where he's placed in the world at that time and the friends around him how they perceived him at that time But what you get from this whole thing is he never really wanted to be famous. He wanted to be an artist and he wanted to be a designer but the fame just kind of came along with it and he would have been extremely happy to be completely private and just doing his own thing but he had to do that in order to essentially make money and be able to keep making the stuff that he loved. He's portrayed. Here is such an average guy. He's just such a normal human being and this is one of those sad situations where someone with such a huge amount of creativity is kind of beaten and battered into a place where they're left so emotionally vulnerable and it's quite quite sad to see that that take place as well well.

"You know, this is like twenty years ago, and we decided to move back to south Florida where we Rupp and open Cole Miller boutiques, and that I was like twenty one twenty. Two of that point. My brother was like twenty five or whatever. And it was like, so not the right thing. And I, even though my my parents had clothing stores. So that also seemed like the natural thing for us. But I, I mean, we almost killed each other. We are fighting like cats and dogs. We are both so young and inexperienced stupid and like, why were you fighting so much? You know, I think I think we were just so young and inexperienced we were in the wrong thing. And so we were kind of driving each other crazy because I think there was all this underlining tension of like, we're both not happy in our lives, which you know is one of our biggest mantras dry bar like life is short to work someplace lame and it's like, you know, I mean, I. Joke. The mic was like always playing golf, and I was running the stores. So I was probably a little bitter about that. He might differ, but you know, I mean, honestly, like I was like the manager of stores running the it was like a women's focus kind of business. And I think he felt a little uncomfortable in the store, sue and he, you know, he did all the buying and the back end and we're just similar to how our partnership is now Dr are, but it just wasn't a good fit for either one of us. I think it's interesting if you had before, Dr are this one entrepeneurship experience and it was with your brother and it went terribly. Why did you. Parents asked the same question. We told them we were going back into business together. There'd been a lot of time obviously between that, we'd both grown ally. You know, I got married. I had kids and Mike was also by the way such a big supporter of me going to beauty school when I decided to leave Nicole Miller and do that, which by the way my parents were not. My parents were like what you want to go to cosmetology school, like they saw hell, terrible things got the Nicole Miller day. So that was the big question. And there was a lot of leg, you know, really like intense conversations about it. And you know, I remember saying to my brother like it can't be like it was, and he knew that and felt that to you. And I think once we had those conversations about this being very different and like it couldn't be like it was and we, you know, and a lot of the things that we did to push each other's buttons like we kind of out to not do again and different an example of what maybe one of those conversations where you were as you're saying, figuring out how to not. Push each other's buttons because I feel like that could apply to any working together. I think everyone probably has different buttons. I think it's like learning how to talk to each other and respectful manner. I think more than anything, though is it is the sense of respect that we have each other. I mean, you can just feel that when somebody respect you and somebody doesn't, and when someone like really wants to hear your opinion in once your thoughts versus somebody who's kind of dialing it in and you feel like it's not like genuine, they're feeling like they're asking because they have to ask you versus wanting to to really genuinely have your opinion and and there's so much back and forth. It's such a two way street with Michael Nyman that because I know he really values my opinion and he knows I really value his opinion. And I think that's why the partnership works, and it also goes to Cam my husband, you know, it's like we defer to everything creatively on to him and have such massive respect for what he does and vice versa. He's not trying to get into the business side of stuff, and neither one of them are trying to like get in and control the hair piece of the business..
