Johnny wasn't doing so well. He was an extremely wounded person. He was a former marine. He had been treated for bipolar. He had been institutionalized is twice in his life and he was certainly cognizant of all this and so in one sense the riffing and the improvisation and the ad living was his way of keeping all that at bay and not having to necessarily confront it or immerse himself in it but also I think everybody around him everybody nobody who worked on the show with winters and that certainly included Robin gave him a little bit of breathing.

"Yeah. But yeah, I mean, it's it's just. The the internet can kind of make or break you in. That's that's kind of the thing that that. I I was getting some of out of your Ted talk and just things that I've kind of just rationalized over the last year or two is that even like ten years ago, we were kind of making predictions that a lot of things that people were doing online light you kind of have to watch what you're doing because it's going to come back and bite you later. And now it is. So it's like it's like you should have just been rented from the start. No, you're you're absolutely. And and believe me I've gotten to the point where I've had to go through my social media. And be like, I know I've said some things that are off color off comment man, I need to go and scrub like I I need to take this on the chin. But I think I think pop culture in general as well as its reflecting that you know, you see these you everything that's going on right now in entertainment. It's it's starting to reflect this kind of climate change in being authentic to yourself, which is kind of interesting, which is which is why right now in in a creative space in working entertainment. And and we're working within pop culture. It is such a fun time to be creative. Because you have a lot of real stuff to to to use for your art. Oh, yeah. And it's and it's constantly constantly flooding in. Absolutely, absolutely new. You see it you say day in and day out with what's coming out on on on right now. What again, you hate? You hate to see TMZ at times or you hate to see really like see I don't wanna see CBS talking about the Amazon, you know, just basis divorce. I don't want you. I want to see them covering like real news stuff. Like, I don't. But it's crazy. Cheesy dipping reflect all the time at his mainstream media in and. Yeah, man. Sorry. Getting on it. I got on a rant. I got on rantel now. Oh, no, no. It's nothing. We like ransom the show. But. No, I there's there's a lot of stuff in the news. Like, everything's breaking news, no matter where it's ad like, even a gay culture. And that's. Kind of sad that you know. Oh rumor mill get, you know, breaking news Bubba, blah, one line of text that's important out of the whole thing, and it's not even relevant. So like, it's I don't know. There's I guess that's the reason why like even with doing podcasts are doing like websites in general light, I refuse to do late. Click bait type stuff of one article, and you know, just to try and get funds, right? Up sincere snap. I appreciate you. Yeah. And that's that's the thing to like there's there's a lot of lack of substance and a lot of mouths speaking online. And that's I think that's part of the. The whole thing that people aren't being totally real. And that's an unwed. Like, I'm I I appreciate you you washing it. And that's that's really what I wanna do with within that Texas had the opportunity to speak in, you know, using some real life moments that I feel like reflect my work in kind of stuck with me in that, you know, being able to kind of highlight and talk about what's kind of shaped me, that's something. I'm I'm I'm glad that you've got the Morgan Mindy reference to the the crowd a kid. I don't know if they got it ahead.

"Tell us about Morgan Mindy, and this book that you're listening to so I'm listening to the biography of Robin Williams. It's called, Robin. And it's so good. I mean, it's one of those ones you put it in. And it tells you you're not gonna finish this book for I think sixteen hours. I don't know how many pages that comes out. So I got to speed it up. I got my reading speed at one point two five which is fast enough. So that you're making better progress, but it's not and then Robert went over to Hollywood. And when he's in Hollywood, which is how wrong. Spoken at that speed. So they talk about how he how the character of Mork came to be now, did you watch happy days? Donna I did. Okay. Did you watch more can Mindy? I did. Okay. So I watched happy days in syndication. But I don't think I've ever seen an episode of Morgan many. But I know of it have seen little clips anyway. It's just made life is amazing. So Gary Marshall is the director and the producer of happy days. Okay. Darren season five of happy days season five of happy days. Incidentally is the season where it jumped the shark phrase that we get when a TV show goes from you know, kind of be the rage and believable. Then Fonzie went out to the west coast and jumped to shark on his motorcycle in that same season, they were running out of some ideas. The year before Star Wars had come out. So Gary Marshall, admittedly, a little hard up for new ideas was talking with his son at the time. And he said, what do you think we should do which we do on happy days? And he said you should have some some kind of like a space alien because Star Wars was hot and his son loves Star Wars. So then Gary Marshall goes into the writer's room and said all right guys this the same season where they've already jumped the shark which by the way does not mean the ratings went down you are right about didn't just got weird. It just got weird. And then the weirdness continued. He goes into the writer's room and says, all right? I need Fonzie to square off with an alien and they're like, no. But Gary Marshall said, but I was the boss. So then it was gonna work. So then he goes the writers of thinking how are we ever going to be able to pull this off? This makes no sense. No one is going to buy this. And then his son he's telling us on this. And they say how can we make this believable? And he said, well, then you can just say that it was all dream, which I guess is how they ended up solving that in within happy days. So then they make it all dream, Robin. Williams comes in now, what happens at the the curtain call, you know, after they tape it in front of a live studio audience all the main players are going out, and they're all getting a plus when Robin Williams who had only ever been in that up. So nobody knew him when he stepped out on stage. They said that the studio audience stood to their feet. So he got bigger cheers than Fonzie. And then Ritchie, and it was people took notice fast forward to that summer. ABC hard up for shows. They look through the cupboards were bear. They had no interesting new shows. So then Michael Eisner who was head of. ABC back at the time. Call Gary Marshall and said, hey, what do you wanna do? You have any new ideas? We we need some new ideas. And he went on to say, look, they love you. We love you just make something up. And so then Gary Marshall said well, there was this guy who appeared on one episode, by the way, most of the executives in the brass at ABC didn't even watch it. Because by that point happy days had been on for five years. It was a ratings success. So they didn't have to manage it. You know what I mean? So when he said more it wasn't like they said. Oh, yes. Of course, when Robin Williams, they didn't know, they were none the wiser. So he said he got a huge standing ovation. He just crushed it. Why don't we do that? And they said great figure out where it's going to be set. So then Gary Marshall had a sister who was in school in Boulder, Colorado. And he said, let's have it set in Boulder, Colorado. And then Michael is a contact says, look we liked the idea we like, Mark. But we need we need something else in Gary Marshall quickly figured out what they were getting at. And he said, look, I get it you need you need it to be more and somebody what about Morgan. Mandy morgan. Melanie Morgan Mindy? Now, we figured it out. So from one from Garry Marshall's son having benefactor of Star Wars is what caused Robin Williams to become more on happy days. And then eventually more can Mindy ha. From just a kid like in Star Wars. I bet there's tons of stories in Hollywood like that agree that we don't know about that just comes from talking to your kid or your whoever your mom, your dad at the dinner table. I bet there's tons of them that would be fun to put put together a book like that. Little stories of how things came to be. And then if we look back in our own lines, we all have these little pivotal moments. Where you think boy had this not happened had? I not been there at this particular time. And I remember my father-in-law once said whether that means something good happened or bad happened. He said don't don't ever get weighed down by that. Because if you really analyze your life, you will find it is I would believe that these are all divinely orchestrated moments or if you think that they're coincidences whatever they are. He said they are all over your life for better and for worse. And so don't, you know, you don't have to get way down with all my goodness. What if I wouldn't have been in the store at that? Exact your life is made up of those things it's going to happen. It's hard to have regrets about big things that happen in your life. Right. Because if that thing wouldn't have happened, then this thing wouldn't have happened. Well, hey, do you remember when when I found out that I had gone to school with the girl from vendor pump roles Sheena we were like in class together. And then I come to find out years later. Oh, she's in the show that I never watch. Anyway. So I'm I'm reading this one of my college professors who was a mentor to me in a friend. She was the one who really liked pushed the intelligence. She was fantastic. Her name is Monica, Janice. I knew that she had appeared in Morgan Mindy at some point. So I was waiting thinking. I wonder if this will ever happen. But I didn't remember much of the backstory and they keep referencing. This comedic duo of Rick and ruby throughout the throughout the book. And there was a time that Robin Williams in San Francisco was opening for Rick and ruby then when he went on to do some stuff in New York City, it was part of a big comedy show out there. He would have Rick and ruby. Open for him come to find out. They he's going through listening to the book. And then they said Robin Williams who was in a limo at the time with one of the members of Rick and ruby Monica, Janice, and I was like son of a God listen to this. Now, the story that they were telling was actually at one point early in his career with the success of Morgan Mindy. Comedian started having backlash against Robin Williams because they said that he was stealing some of their material that he would drop into the comedy shore on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. And he would steal jokes from comedians and use them later in Mork and Mindy. Comedian said look when you use it on national TV in front of an audience of some forty million people. It's not going to work the next time. I do it. It's gonna feel like I bring you exactly. And so the example that they were giving was he was in the limo with my professor from college. An my professor from college Monica. Janice tells him a story about how her cousins grandma died something like that in before the end of that ride wherever they were going. He had retold the story in about his own life. The same parts were in the whole store. They were saying his mind moves so fast that some argue the innocently he lifted material from other people, but tapping in example of in the same ride to wherever they were going. He heard a story, and then regurgitate regurgitated it as his own story. Interesting. Very interesting. Yeah. You're right, though, mind probably because it works so fast. You just start throwing things in the story and your. Yeah. Sorry about somebody coming a comedian coming up to him at the comedy store backstage slamming him against the wall. Saying you use my joke in demand at three hundred dollars in regulars of the comedy store back then said that he paid he paid up. Wow. It's really interesting when I was a kid. I remember for Christmas one year. I was so excited because I was a fan of Mork and Mindy Robin Williams had a comedy album out called reality. What a concept. See it right now. I could see his head on the, you know, just a head shot of him on the Elbe them. Yes. It is pretty dirty. I don't think my parents realized that's because I just read about that this morning. That's what they were talking about this morning. And he saw that. In fact, there's a point I guess on the album, he just uses the f bomb lot. Yes. Where he and by the way, they do document not gender. No. Excuse me. She talks about how he got away with all sorts of dirty stuff talk about the metoo movement. I mean, they would be running a line. He could be stark naked suddenly at a rehearsal, grab her breasts on my all these things that he would get away with back then anyway, they were talking about that. And he saw that as an opportunity he felt sort of suppressed by Morgan median the network executives as kind of a family show. Yes. And then people just the corporate execs were always reeling him back in. And so that was a place for him to just let himself go and on that album. The crowd starts chanting more more more. And then I guess he breaks character and one of the only moments on the album where he uses his actual, Robin Williams voice and says guys, look, I come here. So that I can take a break from the they go on without making thing on it. Okay. So again, the name of the, Robin. It's not an autobiography and biographies on autobiography this is a biography that came out posthumously for. Robin williams. So, but it's it's really interesting listened to the narration is great too on on audible. So if you wanna listen, I don't know. But this guy's got a great voice in at times. He has to do sort of his own version of Robin. Robin Williams is doing he's pretty darn good. Oh, good call. All right. Good deal. When we come back. We're gonna put some people in time out. Oh, you're gonna put a TV show in time out. And I'm going to tell you about a guy who proposed to his girlfriend and now wants to take that proposal back. We'll tell you about that coming up next on mytalk one zero seven.
