"That I I kind of revisit a little bit during the press for this because you know those things in the book, but I I couldn't I can't remember writing and and yet, you know, they're they are and and it's just a great deal of that time and if my brother and the precious memories wonderful cathartic and also important to keep those memories alive and to set the stage for people to understand what happened. Okay, it would be unfair of me not to mention the fact that on the back of the book cover where it has your name and the logo of the book which is a toaster. It says former Pixar screenwriter, which gets everybody to page engine. I honestly on purpose didn't IMDb you because I wanted to hear from you what you actually did for. I'm a huge Pixar fan as most people are what was your role? Oh great. Well, so am I was a screenwriter that so that that model is an in this secret. This is all this is all talk about so total that model is very, yep. Director driven. So the directors there are all sort of they tend to be from animation background and they went when it's time when they're sort of selected to be the person to make sure they have to then pitch a story which is kind of usually based on some sort of personal experience of theirs and then they hire on a writer to kind of work with them and bring them to life. So it's whether it's been out there you're you're you're definitely very much, you know collaborating with someone to bring their Vision to the screen rather than you know going in and telling them how you would do it or took your I see what your story is you want to tell so I was doing that. Unfortunately, the film hasn't been released yet. So I think that's probably about as much as I can say about it, but I'm not happy with the next year or two and hopefully we can talk about it. Then I would love to have you back to talk about that now on the Press coverage of the book that you're selling today, which I urge people to get set my home. By Simon Stevenson soon to be a major motion picture. A lot of authors say that a lot of publicists say that but I have a feeling this is this is going to be streamlined right to the screen wherever that screen maybe in the future. This is God movie written all over it. Tell me how that's progressing and what you see for it. Yeah. Well, I hope so, I mean Understood out here in Los Angeles long enough to know, you know not to get too excited until the cameras start rolling all that said we're in a great position for a very lucky that you and your list. We noticed that what the real determinant of what gets the movie made is a director and a director that's passionate to do it. And and so I was very lucky that the director Edgar Wright novel in responded to it. I wanted to see about making it to movies so he came on board and we have a script and it's now, you know, I think I think the best of times there's pieces that need to fall into place for movies go ahead. But of course this isn't the best of times in in the world for lots of reasons. So I'm kind of keeping my fingers crossed and hopefully hopefully before too long this will take an actor's career because it's a lot like the mister Spock story, you know, the unfeeling gets feelings. I'll just tell you who I foresaw as I'm reading this Steve Carell wage. Or Edward Norton to the best actors out there. I could see either one of them knocking it out of the park and luckily, you know as you get the right to that thankfully not something I get much stay in because I would just you know, I would say all of them to just get them all to what I did want to mention too. And this is just inside baseball kind of stuff. But I love the fact that it's a writing project within a writing project as we're reading the book. We're reading the screenplay. Let's just put it that way of of Jarred AKA Brad you'll find out more when you read it folks and it's really neat because I know you're a screenwriter. So it's it's the combination of both novel and screenplay that that's an interesting device. I just enjoyed reading it that way. Six, thank you. Yeah, there's you know, there's a few sections of the books that are written and written in screenplay format. Of course, you know, I thought I had invented that genre and I'm probably telling everyone that invented this new thing and someone pointed out to me that as far back as Moby Dick Moby Dick as a counter this written in in in the stage play. So so there's nothing new Under the Sun even even if I claim there is a well as mentioned funny and touching at the same time and Simon Pegg the actor whom I've interviewed for his own writings and he's a wonderful wonderful Talent wrote quote a beautiful heartfelt analysis of what it means to be human. It doesn't get any better than that in terms of quotes from somebody like Simon that was terrific, you know, so grateful and Delighted that. You know, he he liked it because of course. Yeah. I'm I'm his huge fan as as the rest of the world and let me just note that he would also make for a very interesting Jared as I thought he would be terrific. Well Simon, I am so happy to meet you. And again, I can't wait to share this news with everyone that set my heart to five a new novel by Simon Stevenson is a month to read and you don't have to be a Sci-Fi a geeky kind of person as I am. You will enjoy it because it's it's about Humanity. Thank you so much, my friend and good luck. Thank you. Thank you for having me. I really appreciate. Sport set my heart to 5 by Simon Stevenson.

Not a new very few men aboard the town who knew the whole of this unsaid story, but communicate it in secrecy during the game detached ego, the Indian Harpoon her. Nights later cash spoke in his sleep revealing portions of the story. The next morning, the men forced it out of him. Still. It was such a serious and overwhelmingly dark tale. But it never made it out of that four castle. But one of those lucky ears was this meals. and. So it's smell wishes to narrate this entire story for us the town hosts story. which has later connections to the book. And is very entertaining in and of itself. It was actually published in magazines such as a standalone story and it did well. It touches on the highly controversial subject of flogging him the whale fishery. In the army. Which Herman wrote an entire different book about but that's another story of course. I want to reiterate that the town hosts story is said by historians to contain much of the original ideas of moby. Dick. Moby Dick was re written about halfway through and largely changed due to Herman being inspired by a friend and contemporary nathaniel. Hawthorne. That is when he took the book too much higher planes. It seems though that much of his original story survives in the town hosts story. Some say Captain Bill Dad owner of p Quad who you will remember from back on Nantucket. was originally supposed to serve as an abusive captain of the Peak Quad. Before Ahab was even thought of. You may also remember mention of Tin. A whaler who was highly regarded amongst his crew that showed up in the night spider in peaking smells interest as to why Balkan can was popular amongst his amongst his fellow whalers. Some of said that Balkan ten was originally meant to play on much larger role in this story. Possibly a friend Ishmael or the near the story. But was replaced by another character still kilt and scrapped. But hints survive like the early scene. Balkan has dismissed from the book early on as they depart on Christmas. Anyway I. DON'T WANNA get confusing but I was wondering whether it bring their sort story to life for you all. I just speculation I realized that I just had to do it. And I want to be largely dramatic and very special.

Moby Dick Chapter Eight

"Welcome back to another episode of Church history. Last week we were talking about the pulpit that Latin Word Putnam, and that object that appears in so many churches. Well, we also find the pulpit, appearing in of all places that great American novel by Herman, Melville none other than moby. Dick Moby Dick has one hundred and thirty five chapters. They have fascinating names like the shark massacre and interesting names, two of the chapters in particular come early in the book that have great names chapter nine is entitled the sermon. Sermon, Chapter Eight is entitled The pulpit so this is Melville's description of a pulpit of a fabled new. England church, it's sort of a conglomerate picture that Melville is putting together. And of course they are about to go out to sea questing after the great white whale, and before they go, all the sailors will show up that. Sunday in church to hear that sermon before they're sent off to see, and they might not come back again well. This is chapter eight on the pulpit. Let's read Melville's description. He tells us how he's sitting there. In the Pew of the Church and Father Maple comes in, and then he starts walking towards the pulpit. Melville says like most old fashioned pulpits. It was a very lofty one and since. Our stairs to such a height would by its long angle with the floor seriously constrict the already small area of the chapel, the architect it seemed had acted upon the hint of Father Maple, and finish the pulpit without a stairs, substituting a perpendicular that is straight up and down side ladder like those used in mounting ship from a boat at sea. The wife of a whaling captain had provided the chapel with a handsome pair of red ropes for this latter. Halting for an instant at the foot of the ladder, and with both hands, grasping the ornamental knobs of those red ropes, Father Maple cast a look upwards, and then with a truly sailor, like, but still reverential dexterity hand over hand, mounted the steps as if ascending the main top of his vessel. Melville continues, nor was the pulpit itself without a trace of the same seat taste that had achieved the latter. It's paneled front was in the likeness of shifts, bluff bows and the holy. Bible rested on a projecting piece of scroll work fashioned after a ship's fiddle headed beak. What could be full of more meaning Melville asks. For the pulpit. Is Ever this Earth's foremost part? All the rest comes in its rear. The pulpit leads the world from thence. It is the storm of God's quick. Wrath is first descried, and the bow must bear the earliest brunt. From thence it is the god of breezes. Fair or foul is I invoked for favourable winds. Yes, yes, the world's a ship on its passage out not a voyage complete, and the pulpit is its prow. Well, that's from the pen of Melville. What a fascinating line he gives us. Did you hear it in that last paragraph I read and the pope it leads the world. Well. That's chapter eight. The pulpit from Melville's great novel. Some have called I. Know Dr Sprawl often called it the great American novel Moby Dick or The whale.

"Burst through an almost instant temporarily disabled the boat nearly level with the waves. It's half waiting splashing crew trying hard to stop the gap bailout pouring water. Some reasons why we excerpted this section first of all. This is a very difficult book to excerpt from because it's got that kind of storytelling long winded this and annisten on that Now the reason why we went with this particular selection is because you get a little bit of the uncaring nature of Moby Dick Moby Dick here standing in for the versus nature See here The wheel wailed round present black forehead at bay but in that evolution catching sight of the nearing blackhall of the ship. Seemingly seeing in it the source of persecutions he cares about seemingly moby. Dick Cares about the boat much more than he cares about eighty have being so obsessed with Moby Dick and you see in that kind of miscommunication. Almost that there's real heartbreaking irony to it this is what Phoenix had to say. This is perhaps the most famous example of man versus nature in literature and also shows how man versus nature can reflect. Man Versus. Obsession with the whale is part of his own mental decline. That's a really reduced view of easily the most analyzed piece of American literature so enjoy. Enjoy indeed now. This was sourced from a website called. American LITERATURE DOT Com. It looks like you can get the entire book Moby Dick or though AOL on that website. If you're into some kind of high minded ocean shenanigans if you like the lighthouse go read Moby Dick Please. That is what we've got for you today. Three little vignettes of what man versus nature can be. Join US next week where we will be doing. One of our main episodes Phoenix will be back with me and we will be talking about the twin book to desperation which is of course Richard Bachman 's the regulators. So get reading on that we are going to be reading through Chapter Seven. Roughly the first half of the book. keep an eye out for many of the same characters and see if any of the themes interlaced with this. I will say having read the majority of the first half the book. Man versus nature features much less prevalent which is interesting given that they're supposed to be kind of Two sides of a similar coin as it were anyway. We can't wait till you join us.

"Their existing companies our customers and and to acquire new customers. Can you talk about some of those key partnerships new yes so one of them is <hes> trip rides. Trip is a software as a service platform that it just launched in the u._s. Two weeks ago and miami <hes> they officially partnered with the miami dolphins so that's great for us. What good is they have. Seventy five thousand users as i mentioned earlier and every user and driver rider driver has to have moby to transact so it's kind of peer to peer system so we have active users right out the gate of seventy five thousand. I'm just for moby and then we're currently integrating our esotique into their software. There's a retailer that we can use this. Yeah retailers can't over the retailers right now but the some of the biggest retailers dollars in the united states the big box stores and things of that nature watch will be doing a p._r. Released here in the next month or do that see that's big to me. I don't know oh you guys here that are listening with us. Would you agree that having the partnerships that are automatically going to onboard. Maybe that's actually the killer hilar app because we talked about that yesterday here in the mastermind and i think natural organic adoption is is really. I don't think it's going to matter what the app is. If moby pay is the one that gets into the hands of hundreds of thousands or millions of people guess what it's a very crypto world <hes> mhm i wanna ask what about your team. So what makes you guys sort of qualified to be able to launch this type of ecosystem yeah well. It makes you so a makes us well. The first person we brought on the team as our essentially our chief of counsel brian o'neill and everyone thought i was crazy doing a crypto project in the united states because the s._e._c. you see he's formerly s._e._c. Also formerly chief counsel new york stock exchange so from a compliance standpoint. We started there and then we move over to our c._t._o. Nick kuni and nick builds an accounting software <hes> up to about five hundred employees. I believe in sold it to sage which is the largest technology company in the u._k. So he understands accounting systems and lettering systems off chain which allowed us to build what we know. He's moby dick moby. Dick says younger brother moby dick wasn't available. We'll take nick <hes> love it. Just don't have any con artists on the team because then you'd have moby slick. Oh now see that's why we got the name bad crypto because i wasn't really bad so as we get ready to close at us or anything else that you want to make sure our listeners know about moby pay well. I think it's just the you know the the strategy for the mainstream adoption and that's really the key here and i think a lot of people people were focused on crypto a very small part of the demographic in the world that understand that so i think strategically were bridging the gap in that manner and have a real life application location with a real user adoption strategy the that's sets us apart in a real business right. We're not we're not a project. We're not a concept. We have a live beta right right now. You can transact. You can do certain things on but again. It's the real business and a real a real user. Adoption strategies thinks what sets us apart..

Governments that governments from dictate complete dictatorships to democracies differ. Only in the number of essential supporters our backs that needs scratching and every regime.

And keep this in mind as you approach the midterms keep this in mind, as you listen to every single politician Jabber, the state or to make the matter more concrete, the government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me they have taking one with another no special talent for the business of government. They have only a talent forgetting in holding office their principal device to that end is to search out groups who Panton pine for something that can't get and to promise to give it to them nine times out of ten that promises worth nothing. The tenth time. It is made good by looting. A to satisfy be in other words, and here's your here's your punchline governments is a broker and pillage in every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods, so true. So the part that at the website and in case you don't follow the Twitter. So the part that I really like in there. And I completely agree with is is probably the most controversial part of that. Because a lot of people wouldn't it. Agree is that they have no special talent that for government. I agree with that a lot of people feel like it's a special class of people that you know, that that should rule. A cer- can rule is the idea that we listen, I'm going to cheat a little on the wording of this to make it a little more obvious. But the idea that we should have citizens. Legislators people who are who are doctors and business people and nurses at school teachers in government. Oh my God. No, we must have politicians and government that's an obscenity against the idea of this country. But that is by far the most common attitude. You know? Tucker Carlson's big on the on the fact that he does a show on FOX. He's big on the whole elites run this country thing, and yeah, he doesn't screed on that. He was tying it into the immigration thing yesterday. And I thought it was absolutely right is the guy who comes from small town America, and lots of towns and counties that have changed completely and a very short period of time because of immigration, and you don't have to be racist to not like your town changing just normal human reaction, you grew up in a town. It was a certain way with a certain certain language, certain foods certain customs, you want it to stay that way. That's just human nature anywhere on planet earth. Does make you racist. Does make you a bad person? That's what everybody wants. And then you change your town has changed completely. And in many ways, you'd say for the worst. Now, we have crime we didn't use to our schools don't work they used to work fine. He can't get an obstacle us to be able to either. No everybody or be able to talk to. So I can't even talk to the civil. I don't know. Some of the stuff is completely negative. Some of the stuff is just normal human reaction and his Tucker pointed out, the people who make the rules their neighborhoods. Haven't changed a lick since nineteen sixty right? Their neighborhoods are exactly the same. So while they're lecturing about how you need to be more accepting of.

And I thought it was absolutely right is the guy who comes from small town America, and lots of towns and counties that have changed completely and a very short period of time because of immigration, and you don't have to be racist to not like your town changing just normal human reaction, you grew up in a town. It was a certain way with a certain certain language, certain foods certain customs, you want it to stay that way. That's just human nature anywhere on planet earth doesn't make you a racist. Those make you bad person. That's what everybody wants. And then you change your town has changed completely. And in many ways, you'd say for the worst. Now, we have crime we didn't use to our schools don't work they used to work fine. You can't get an Ospital used to be able to are you Steve no everybody or be able to talk to the. So I can't even talk to the I don't know. This other stuff is completely negative. Some of the stuff is just normal human reaction, and it's Tucker pointed out the people who make the rules their neighborhoods. Haven't changed a lick since nineteen sixty right? Their neighborhoods are exactly the same. So while they're lecturing about how you need to be more accepting of, you know, changing.

"The rest of your life. That is the the opposite problem of most artists he came out of the gate. Eight great. And then I'm guessing spent the rest of his life having to live up to that moment of of greatness. That's a good point. What time does telescopes in reverse? He had a good twenty five or thirty years when he was at the top of his game and arguably remained at the top of his game. It's that the world did not give him the opportunities. And he has shooed many of the opportunities that would have allowed him to continue to be in the public eye at the top of his game. Also, the here's a critical thing. The reason I call it Orson rehearsed is because of his great gloss on Moby, Dick Moby. Dick, rehearsed. Rehearsed. Yeah, it's a it was his idea to to stage Moby, Dick. But very early on in rehearsals. He realized that he enjoyed rehearsing it. More than performing it. So what he did is. This was in London. He created an omnibus sort of a sandbox piece called Moby Dick rehearsed where every time it was performed. It was different is see now, here's where I get my idea. And sometimes he would gauge what was going on in the audience, and he's he's shoved one of his team out. There said do the the p quad scene where this happens now. And then if things were just going cold in the audience, he might come out and do a monologue or talk about being Orson Welles. It was the Orson Welles variety show through the miles of Moby, Dick. This was back in London in the sixties. I think and he was already there. My I posit that. In fact, having started at the top even by the time he got to the second third four films like Amerson, and it's all true and the films that he just started leaving in hotel rooms half cut or cut. I think that he enjoyed. Rehearsing them and shooting them and going through the process of making film and theater far more than he enjoyed the process of having to sit there in a movie theater. Having critics judge him. I think that he decided quite rightfully as many artists do that was much more fun making art than having to endure the results of having made. Do you think that was born out of win? You are creating a piece of art. You're recording a piece of music painting. Whatever there is a point at which you have to call it, even though you know, that future you is going to maybe not be completely satisfied with with the work that you've done or may just hate it. Because past you was stupid, or what have you know? If you're self critical person. Do you do you think that there is some of that in wells that he? In you know, because when you when you do that when you release something out into the world, you're releasing out there for the public to judge for I'm hearing future self to judge. I think that that is again, I hate to compliment you because why should I say anything nice about anybody? But it's a great question. And here's the irony. Maybe this is why we're talking today. Here's my stance on this question in Seattle. I wrote an opera for that company called Amelia, the end of the opera consists of a woman giving birth to a daughter named Amelia, she has surrounded by hospital technicians and her doctor and so forth. But during the course of the opera has been revealed that these are the actors who also portrayed her her missing father and her husband and her best friend and other people, and it it emerges that at the moment of giving birth to this child..

"Cruise line has announced it will be launching an exact working replica of the Titanic for people to travel on beginning in twenty twenty two. Possibly go wrong. Boy, if God's a fan of irony the Titanic to set to make its two-week maiden voyage in twenty twenty two. Great idea and has the same cabin layout is the original Titanic. It's going to sail from Dubai to Southampton England, and then onto New York tracing the North Atlantic route of the original Titanic which sank as we know in nineteen twelve killing a young Leonardo DiCaprio scene in the movie is always looking to be aboard because I'm kind of a plucky working class guy. If you saw Leonardo DiCaprio on the deck of the Titanic. I would I would I would scurry off. But anyway, it's kind of an interesting idea, though, how accurate are they are they keeping it are they going with the same shortage of lifeboats as well. Or what the exactly same grand staircase and giant Schengen? Else? Same orchestra playing bittersweet Lee into Loboda goes underwater, if you're a cruise ship band, and they call you up it has to play. Do you take the gig? It's like the old joke of you. Make a joke about Lincoln getting shot. And then he's a too soon because there is a point and what you can make jokes about things. And it's interesting, obviously. Two years later, you wouldn't make in nineteen fourteen. You wouldn't have made jokes out loud about the Titanic and all those people drowning. No, we're twenty years later. It was a horrible tragedy. But maybe forty but certainly one hundred plus years later, you feel free to make all the jokes. We've made you a bolt that looks just like, wouldn't it be crazy? If we got our boat like the Titanic and went through the same. Everybody will make the same joke during the voyage, right? Yeah. Wacky human beings. What are you gonna do? Shoot them into space. For a follow up is this company making was that blimp? The hindenburg. Exactly. Like, no God. Now that you know, it's funny PS that suddenly made it seem incredibly distasteful to me. You wouldn't do that? Now why? Because the Hindenburg was in the early thirties late twenties. Let's let's come up with a more recent tragedy. We're gonna get a Malaysian flight that disappeared. Okay. How are we going to recreate it give the same number? And who knows where we'll land you want macabre. I'm going to get a limo. Just like the one that crashed and killed those twenty two people a couple of weeks ago. Wow. Just like that limo and wedding parties can rent it and drive the exact same road, right? Wedding party. Drove. Yes. How's that different? Not different than the Titanic. Just time. Exactly. The same thing. Only the distance a time. Wow. And that sounds crazy. Like only a psychopath would do that. Right. It's incredibly troubling humans. What are you gonna do with them? Right. You're going to masturbate in front of him. That says we're going gonna do. No, no, not Sarah Silverman. Who is a very funny comedian ex wife of Jimmy Kimmel. Oh, that's right guitar to how freaking sanctimonious he's become. Anyway, she she's always made very over the top sexy jokes and she's been friends with Louis CK since before they were both really big time famous. She's featured in his TV show a lot. And she's hilarious. And he's hilarious. But she said Louis C K did that in front of her when they were younger, but with their permission. I've known Louis forever. I'm not making excuses for him. He asked if he could do that in front of me. Sometimes I'd say, yeah. Go ahead. Now, that's an interesting friendship. She said it was like science. I was just kind of interested in other times. I'd say, no, that's gross. And we'd get a pizza. I like pizza that was just starting like you'd better than the other alternative, in fact, even from not hungry. I'm gonna for the pizza. Yeah. Wow. That's that's that's interesting. They were friends and not lovers. Correct. Okay. Okay. That's very odd. You'll know what you want to do with that information. What you want to do with this information either? Your poop is probably full of plastic now because this is about poop, some might be tempted to take childish idiotic angle on this. Why is everyone looking at me? Well, I'm kind of hoping somebody does because. The truth. Is there are things medical things happening in the world that are. Of indeterminate origin. Why so much autism? Why so much anxiety depression? I think a lot of the depression has to do with the nature of modern man, and our lack of community as expressed by Sebastian younger and tribe and Jonah Goldberg in his book, the death of the Wester things suck now Moby Dick Moby. Dick is the name the book kind of a theme on Ben Sasse as new book to Ben says, thank you. I knew there was another example. But there are also increasing rates of Parkinson's disease and all sorts of neurological stuff the nobody's quite sure why. And this this article in wired dot com is talking about micro-plastics these are tiny tiny pieces less than a five millimeters wide. And some of them glob onto onto each other in the Pacific some sink to the depths of the ocean. Exactly still others get ingested by marine life, including fish and shellfish which turn ingested by other animals like humans. But it worries not only colleges, but gastroenterologist so those folks who study our guts, if micro-plastics are invading the things we eat as possible or invading our stomachs and intestines to a but nobody's really bothered to look at that in the systematic way and figure out if it's doing anything nasty to us until now at the United European gastroenterology meeting in Vienna. Researchers announced they have detected micro-plastics in stool samples from every single one of a small group of international test subjects I would bet every dime. I have that. They will someday. Discover something like this is causing the autism, anxiety and all the problems something like contributor. I think people who don't are not into science or are dumb often. Look for one answer to a question when. You know in science. It's it's often a couple of things if you have lots of plastic in your gut that means you can't process an enzyme, which means with the modern world, constant inputs, blah, blah, blah, it triggers. Whatever it's a multi step thing. You have to have a couple of things present. The pilot study tested eight subjects from Austria. Italy Finland Japan, the Netherlands Poland Russia in the UK. No Americans because they fear us. Each maintained a food diary the week before donating their stools, tears diarrhea Nate mind, you don't need to pay me for it. There's diary man-wich last night. And they have a description of how they donated the stool necessary. But I'm glad to taking a look at this. There's something going on with the plastics or pesticides or her hormones, and the food or something you just know there. Every participants poop tested positive for plastics from polyethylene commonly found in plastic bags to polypropylene bottlecaps to polyvinyl chloride, that's the PVC in PVC pipe. Wow. In fact, of the ten types of plastics that researchers screened for nine were detective detected on average. The researchers turned up twenty particles of micro plastic per quarter pound of poop. It's not hard to imagine that something that is around us. All right now, as I speak will be banned from the planet decades from now on we'll think what a crazy backward time. It was people were people drink out of plastic cups. Can you believe it right something that's never existed on earth? We came up with we invented, and it's incredibly useful. But it's never existed before there's no beast that's ever ingested it over the course of many decades. What what's that gonna do to the peace? We're finding out it's very disappointing that our science came along. And you know, we were able to do away with the plague polio and ended all kinds of heinous diseases that wiped out children for for tens of thousands of years. Now, we got these problems going on for something that we created probably. Yeah. Probably so, hey, if you heard about that, I'm sorry. I don't want this to be a total Downer segment. But have you heard about that polio like illness? That's affecting some kids across America. Yeah. Coming from virus? But they don't know which virus, and they can't figure out what's going on. You know? I don't wanna scare you're anything. But. The New York Times is reporting that on a particularly nasty confrontation this year.
