"Against every law of society and nature? Our children are taught. In school to hate their own country. And to believe that the men and women who built it. We're not heroes, but that were villains. The radical? View of American history. Is a web of lies. All Perspective is removed. Every virtue is obscured. Every motive is twisted. Every fact is distorted. And every flaw is magnified. Until the history is purged, and the record is disfigured beyond all recognition. As a little bit of trump's speech of from Mount Rushmore, that got just destroyed by most of the big media, your cable news channels or you're going to. We're going to hear a montage of that coming up in a moment. There's been a backlash to the backlash though over in the last couple of days as Conservative media has reacted differently. Opinion piece examiner yesterday, trump's rushmore speech was monumentally splendid and goes through the reasons. Why and then his name popped out of my head in your Byron York? He wrote in the examiner. That much news coverage is biased against president. Trump goes without saying, but every now, and then there comes an episode of Bias, so agree GIS that it deserves attention. The coverage of the president's July. Third Speech at Mount Rushmore is one of those episodes. One lesson from at all this kind of reporting and commentary will not change especially in the months preceding election, it just won't. That is why it's important for people to go to primary sources I think this is a good strategy for all of us. If you read that trump, said this or that in a speech, go watch a video of the speech read. The transcript posted on. On the White House website judge for yourself. Perhaps you reach an entirely different impression from the journalists at the nation's largest media outlets who were saying this over the weekend about trump's rushmore trump will be at the Mount Rushmore where he'll be standing in front of a monument of slave owners, and on land wrestled away from native. Americans with these founding fathers with these monuments that we. We don't want to forget. What do we do with them? Maybe they don't stand in the town square. which should they stand anywhere? Should we demolished? Them is been polluted. It's been desecrated by putting these slave owning racist, horrible, horrible white man in sixty foot statues on this wall. And when you look at this place, this land, the Black Hills, the history is a dark one, but. But, it's not just the land that had been stolen in a place like Mount Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills. It's the best of history the test of the narrative if we're reminding folks that the man who carved the monument behind me had deep ties to the KKK. The mother of all photo ops Mount Rushmore, and we know why. This president just can't resist going there. Not, the montage of beating up trump speeches, a montage of beating up on Mount Rushmore, which has kind of similar point for as we mentioned yesterday when Barack. Obama spoke at Mount Rushmore and other presidents didn't have this well, no trying to tie the president to all these horrible things that happened to the contrary. There's speak the grandeur the history there, the president addressing the. The Nation. Oh my God.

Trump Uses Mount Rushmore Speech to Deliver Divisive Culture War Message
"President. Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters in an Independence Day rally at Mount Rushmore last night, where he took the opportunity to denounce the ongoing racial justice movement. And as the Washington Post reports, Republicans are now fearing that his actions could jeopardize not only his reelection but also the future of a GOP majority in Congress. Joining us with Mohr on the KCBS Ring Central News line. Jack Pitney, professor of American politics at Claremont McKenna College, Professor Penny, Thank you for joining us. We appreciate your time. Thank you. And first of all, why don't we maybe should touch on one or two of the things that The president said last night that is kind of raising an eyebrow. Yeah. The entire speech was designed not to unify but to divide, uh, talking about the radical left trying to tear down statues. Ironically, he talked a lot more about statues than about the danger facing really people. That is the Corona virus, and ah, what was also controversial about the event yesterday. Is that there was no social distancing. Nobody was masked and as a result of that, it's very likely. A lot of the people in that crowd are going to be at risk for contracting Kobe. I know people think that the president has reacted very slowly on the Corona virus pandemic itself and the fact that he doesn't wear a mask. As you pointed out, it's telling people is delivering a message. Ah, that's right. And ah, it's a message that he doesn't particularly value reduction of risk here. That's a very dangerous message for a president to be sending. Instead, he's concentrating on these, uh, culture, war issues, really trying to distract attention from the main issue facing the country, which is this terrible pandemic, his ratings in the polls air dropping as we touched upon it and are leading Some of the Republicans now are starting to get a little worried that he is Doing more damage to the party. Then he is helping them. There's no question about that. People judge a president on results and the results as of the middle of 2020 are just downright terrible. Uh, not only the pandemic, but the economy has suffered severe damage. Uh, the standing of the United States globally is very poor United. Americans are now banned from a lot of countries. Uh, if you had predicted this several years ago, everybody would have thought you were an alarmist, but it's come to pass. Professor. Can he turn this? He being the president? Can he turn this around? And if so, what does he have to do to do that? Number one. He needs to get a handle on the pandemic. He needs to show leadership. Uh, he needs drastically to ramp up. Uh, testing, get people to wear masks and if he were able to get Americans to wear masks 70 80 90% That could go a long way not to ending the pandemic, but possibly depending the curve. Uh, if he doesn't do that, it's going to get worse and his political fortunes are very much in jeopardy. And right now, it looks like he's faltering as we mentioned in the polls, But you know this could have a long term effect for the GOP party down the road. That's right. If the election were held today, Republicans would lose both chambers of Congress would suffer a catastrophic defeat for the presidency that gets them into a deep hole. And even worse than that, Uh, you have members of Congress who have hitched their wagons to Donald Trump. And, uh, it's kind of like Republicans in the 19 thirties, coming out a CZ Hoover Republicans. We all know what happened to the Republican Party during the 19 thirties. It's gonna be a long long recovery for Republicans if he doesn't turn it around very quickly, And I guess the old adage, time will tell is what's important

Why put people's Health in jeopardy plus Florida and Texas two states where cases of coronavirus or surging patients filling hospitals? Just how bad is it? I'll speak to experts in both states and one man gets corona virus after visiting friends weeks later. He writes that he hopes will be able to survive it, but he did not his niece with a warning tonight. Let's go out from. Good evening, everyone. I'm Kate Baldwin in for Erin Burnett, welcome to a special edition of out front and tonight the president's disregard for Public Health I. Don't say that lightly. But how else can you view?

The president is on his way there to South Dakota right now we're. He'll give a speech and watch fireworks with a crowd. That's expected to be up to seventy five hundred people masks are optional social distancing. There's no planned Ford. The president intentionally flouting his experts own guidelines that face coverings are of and avoiding large gatherings is absolutely necessary at this point to stop the spread of Corona virus at a time when infection rates are at an all time, high thirty six states, including South Dakota are seeing an increase in infections. Bama and North Carolina reporting a record number of cases just today in California hospitalization rates are at an all time, high and Arizona the demand for ICU beds is hitting a new level, and when the President's own infectious disease expert was asked about events, just like tonight's at Mount Rushmore. Here's what Dr Anthony Fauci said. You should avoid. Whenever possible gathering in crowds where people cannot maintain physical distance. If in fact, the circumstances are such that that's going to happen anyway. No matter what anybody says, you should wear a mask at. Times. That's clearly not happening tonight. which can only one to ask is press. Is the president pudding the public at risk, so he can put on a spectacle packed with the crowd. Because you know he's been advised against this, but still. I'm going to Mount Rushmore. On July third. We're GONNA have a tremendous evening it's.

President Trump Brings Big Fireworks Displays Back To Mt. Rushmore
"To South Dakota and Mount Rushmore now that is where president trump will celebrate independence day this evening. He along with seventy five hundred other people will be treated to a three hundred fifty thousand dollar fireworks display. That is courtesy of south. Dakota taxpayers trump takes credit for reviving the big displays after environmental concerns, stop them in two thousand nine, South Dakota public broadcasting's Seth tupper reports on why the fireworks were banned, and how the president brought them back. Big expensive firework shows like this one erupted in color over the carped heads of Rushmore. Every July for about a decade. But the National Park Service put a stop to it after two thousand nine because of pollution and the wildfire risk to the surrounding black hills national forest. In January president, trump said those aren't good reasons to cancel a fireworks display. They say what can burn stone stone. So, nobody knew why they just set environmental reasons, so I called up our people, and within about fifteen minutes we got it approved, and you're going to have your first. Big Fireworks Display at Mount, Rushmore and I'll try get out there if I can. Right I would say that those comments are not informed comments, and that information is out there what the impacts were Cheryl. Schreier was superintendent of Mount, Rushmore National, Memorial from twenty ten until last year. When the big displays started in nineteen, ninety eight dozens of firefighters had to be stationed in the forest nearby to put out fires started by falling embers debris from the exploded fireworks. Shells delivers the forest in two thousand sixteen, a chemical link to fireworks called perchlorate was found in drinking water wells at Mount, Rushmore levels are not regulated in South Dakota or really, but they remain higher than standard set by Massachusetts and California. Schreier, said it all added up to a consensus when she was in charge, fireworks were not going to be a part of Mount Rushmore any further, but shortly after taking office in two thousand eighteen Republican governor Christie Gnome says she asked. President trump to bring the fireworks back. Footage of them aired all over the world, boosting South Dakota's tourism industry and he ever since then has kind of I. Don't know taking the bull by the horns you know been. Passionate about it a park service environmental review concluded in April found. The fireworks will not have a significant impact on the environment. Seventy five hundred people won tickets to the event in an online lottery signs, encouraging social distancing will be posted and masks will be made available, but GNOME says nothing will be required. We did have a plan originally of social distancing. We do not anticipate any social distancing activities during the celebration protesters pushing for the removal of statues say Mount Rushmore honors to slave owners, Washington and Jefferson calls to face. The memorial are circulating on the Internet. And Native American groups plan to protest, they say the mountain carving and the fireworks desecrate land they, lost broken treaties. Whether could add a final wrinkle. Authorities have set of go no go criteria that could cancel the show if fire conditions are too dangerous.

I guess this should be an easy one right why you think there's a lock for. I think so. I think you could get a rottweiler arrive on lock for vegetables. While I here in America I think corn has to be number one First OF ALL WHY? Are we always sure what vegetables are like? Do we need a list of vegetables? I'm going to be with the list of vegetables. Sometimes I'm not sure if something's a vegetable or not Like give me an example. I don't know banana's not a vegetable. Nope nope okay. Somebody under the impression that it is. Yeah People Think Manasseh Vegetable. Yeah is corn definitely a vegetable? Yes okay All right are you Hispanic guy. No I am not. We're just GONNA name every vegetable. Okay Okay. But my problem is my favorite. I said separate lists because my favorite vegetable is. You're a kiva favorite vegetable. This is the Mount Rushmore of vegetables. So if you were explaining vegetables on these are the four show them. Yes if you went to the National Museum of Agriculture like Oh the big four Akitas favorites here they. That would be fun so it's a lettuce. I think lettuce is definitely let us. I think lettuce is on the short list. I'm not sure if I'm ready to put it on the Mount Rushmore Broccoli. I think is definitely in the big Ford. Broccoli's had a big come up and when we were kids it was a lot of your Broccoli now. It's like everyone's eat their Broccoli steams some Broccoli. It's good yeah okay. What about them heifers handler? I don't eat peas. You'RE GONNA have all speak copies. I just think it's pick things I hate. But who cares who cares what you like but cucumbers and more academic than peas also. I don't think so you come in a salad. That's it. They have one. Yeah you know Elson a salad lettuce which babe ruth a hamburger yeah Maybe cucumbers should become America's favorite food. They shouldn't okay fine. I think you'll agree with me. That tomato should be on the list though. I- tomato is a fruit. I thought tomatoes vegetables turns out. I don't know what vegetable excuse. This was one of your things that you want to talk about. I think carrots should be open. Your mines using carrots lettuce yes. What ELSE CARROTS? Lettuce you said. Corn Corn Bra Willing Carrots peas. That's the four of vegetables a lot. I'm I'm googling his corner vegetable because I'm not like I don't know as Corner Vegetable. What could it be a starch? A STARCH OR VEGETABLE. I think potato is one okay. Good that would be. I think he is considered a vegetable. The corn kernel itself is considered a grain. Okay all right so if you grounded its grain but potatoes vegetables potato and potato is like is that a tuber or root vegetable vegetable and it came up. Yes potatoes eventually okay. Tayo kills all these other foods. It's better it's Yeah. You mentioned that lettuce is in. You know the most popular thing hamburgers. We'll potato is like one of the second or third most popular things the French fry but to me if you if your parents are eat your vegetables not saying potatoes. Yeah if you're a boomer but we're cool parents are we say? I don't think that it's on the big four I but it's the best one and I'm not saying it's my favorite because my favorite favorite. I've already said artichoke but not even come close Right so what do you think is too big? I think it's Corn Broccoli. Carrots and peas. String your overall. I think you're overreacting piece so much peas. Nobody likes peas. I like pea soup like he's not popular Horn Broccoli. Let No Lettuce. You get a can of mixed vegetables tell me what's in the can of mixed vegetables with that. Corn Peas. What's the other one character? It's yes No Broccoli in there. Yeah I know there's been there too I think. Can we put peace over? Potatoes is insane. It's not insane when we're talking about best vegetables the millions. If we send this to the aliens they're going to leave. This country is not worth inhabiting if the frigate if they're enterpise if that's like one of the four main foods and spinach spinach could be there. But it's spinach is so unpopular generally visible. It was much bigger back in the day. I didn't spinach is really needs. We become spinach. Publicists like spinach growers of America. They call us. We have some ideas from them right. I mean with Popeye just produced by the spinach lobby and like nine and it was great. It kept spinach life for years. I have spent pizza. I like Spinach Pizza. I mean would not be my favorite pizza. I'm sure had it but I also like Broccoli and this is gross out when I mentioned before because I don't eat meat on pizza cheese yeah But like I like Broccoli Pizza. I like all vegetables on Pizza. I don't I don't eat corner please. I don't think is the most popular in Israel. The pizza toppings are corn. What olives corn on a pizza? I know it's Gross Cornell's and mushrooms and I don't only of those three I only eat corn on the cop court colonels playing so I only eat mushrooms of those mushrooms. My least favorite food. You onions onions to onion would be like the fourth. Okay all right. Let's get out of this before disease. I think it's Corn Broccoli. Carrots and peas. You WanNa take out peas and put potatoes on there. I mean we could do a poll if you want one hundred nine. Oh Yes `tatoes. Bp's Okay Alright Akiva. Let's let's go to how about okay. I think this is a fun one. Let's do fictional presidents. Okay with the Mount Rushmore of fictional presidents. Not Real Presidents but Fictional presidents from TV and film. If there was going to be a mount rushmore of I guess maybe on some Hollywood sound stage of these are the great four leaders of TV and film. Who might they. So when you're so it's only TV and film. It can't be like I don't know where else it would be from. Is there a great president in a book of Fake President? Book that I'm opening cresent in Harry Potter something. I don't think the president there in Harry Potter. Okay President Harry Potter. I don't think so all right so I'm trying to think of what comes to mind. I got more. I like Morgan. Freeman deep impact more. I mean you could put you could put him on the list Kevin Spacey's the President in House of cards. He is he is. I don't think we're GONNA consider Frank Underwood or are not rushmore. That all right. He was great. It was great. I think that Not the best presidents like people who pass the most policies and were most effective conic. But I think that we want we want presidents who worked for the good I want evoke residents. We don't WanNa evil presidents okay so I think Martin Sheen the West Wing. I think we'll agree there. Even though I'm not as big of a West Wing Guy as some of the other people I I'm definitely not a big West Wing. I'm sure it's wonderful I have not seen Yeah I'm not an Aaron Sorkin Fan. In general I think bill pullman Independence Day is my favorite movie president. He's so great. He gives that great speech then he flies the plane. Yes then you've got to consider poelman. I think he's on our short list. Yeah I do think I think President Palmer in two thousand four has got to be there. Yeah Great President. He was so important bird president. Palmer then I think that this is the point where you know there was a whole assassination plot to try to take out. David Palmer that he's Made a career of being a person that we can trust than in Sheri- commercials just being the fictitious president on twenty four put David Palmer on the list. What do you think about Harrison Ford and Air Force? One now it's easier to put a TV guy on the twenty four in the League so well we get to know him so well for so many seasons or whatever what do you think he he literally says get off my plane like most iconic stupid line. Have you ever W- REWATCH Air Force One now? I don't know if I've ever even seen it in its entirety. Jeez wow so I do remember like being blown away when I saw when I was thirteen years old there. Yeah on Yeah. I re watched the whole thing. I don't know why recently it it is a lot of action in it but it's the least realistic movie of all time. Is people getting shot on planes spoiler alert? It's pretty rough. Yeah I don't know but I do like get off my plate and he kicks and they're like whole time they're sort of like on the wing and the plane while the planes flying. I Dunno physicist but I assume that's like not possible. Yeah okay what about Dave? Do you like the Movie Day. Who's a president in days I incline Kevin Kline? Yeah yes. I'm looking at a list of cheating. Google Stop Right No. It's not googling not cheating. This isn't a test. Yeah okay That teachers doing now. When they give tests about cheating have to be on like zoom the whole time. Keep Your eyes up here. Like how does that work? I don't know I'm not sure that I know you're not GonNa like Battle Star Galactica. What about President Laura? Roslin did you see that whole show. I did I did not. I used to watch it a couple of seasons like at a time. I used to watch shows I had like one of the I like video ipods. Which was also how I watched the entirety of the like the last couple of seasons of the wire which might have affected my enjoyment of that Syria Show to watch and I started watching the battle star Galactica. They've got a couple of seasons in by finish it but she was scandal scandals. Got A big president. Is it big president? I don't watch scandal Well I remember seeing like in the same year Dave the American president to President Movies Right. Yeah and Michael Douglas as president we for sure have I'm trying. What was the most own spoiler but what about veep? Oh Yeah we can do we. Yeah she's more famous being the veep but I guess we could. We could put her in there.

Those are my best months four months. What are they again? September twelve months. Yeah your your pick. September February April January Jan Asari. I did until January march April and September. I think that most people are going to say that January march and April are not in the top four months of Mount Rushmore. I mean I like I know but everyone's GonNa February's not in there. I'd skip the worst among. Yeah you know. If you're going by the sports calendar July and August a pretty light you know if you like tennis golf great but there is this the sports month of the year or is it a difference. I think it's just as there. Yeah well you're living right now. What else is there? I? I'm trying to figure out. What else is there poker? Yeah I would say bad. Yeah I'd say so. Far Knock. Great Yeah I feel like that may is good because you know of like a spring is here. I guess for me like the TV is still is still going on a lot of big Like traditionally end of season stuff. thought that as a really great month may is a great month may in September. It's Sorta like the opposite where you have Memorial Day and Labor Day again. It's not too hot. Not too cold really nice weather sort of like you know. The the fall is nice. Fall is underrated so temperatures. Really the start of the year. Yeah none of my TV year. It started with survivor. Starters temper and it's sort of the Jewish new year like it's September's really like the go back begins. Yes school. The school year starts it's January amid it's September year starts in September September. I people the the holidays I for me I. I actually like January more than most. Because it's the holidays are over but I think that we'll probably have December in their people like like the holiday stuff. He's also your least busy month work wise. It's really ally shows that's good. That's good for me. June July August gets too hot All right let's move on. Let's give me another one Okay what are the Mount Rushmore of? Hbo Shows Okay. I think this is a good one because I think that there are three locks here and I think that the the fourth face of Mount Rushmore is the one that's going to be tricky to nail down. Okay well the wireless broncos. I think we're both GONNA agree are obvious one and I grew. I don't agree with that. You don't think that they're both locks for rush. The Sopranos is a lock. You don't think the wires I do not. Have you ever seen the wire? Of course I've seen the Li- I didn't know what you're going to drop the Evans said okay. So then what's the second show? You think the three shows you think are lock and you think the wire. Oh man the RA. Ra you know read it slash nap. Whatever the nicer outline wires on the bubble for the fourth spot. Oh my God I think. He's on bubbles. It's not on the bulbs. Yeah I I think is the Sopranos. Yep No doubt that's number one I think. Game of thrones is to what is it the biggest hit You know I've seen people make the point on social media which is very true in a different world. The whole universe is just rewatching. Game of thrones ten times now. Nobody is because ended so poorly. Okay so people are doing this. We watching shows but game of thrones. That's a Worley. People have written it already. It'll come back. Give give it a couple years. People will go back and watch a game of thrones and it'll it'll come it's the biggest show ever and it changed a bunch of things about the way the way people think about. Tv How many people had HBO for years and years just to keep Watching game of thrones. You can't not have game of thrones on the Mount Rushmore of HBO shows. Okay and then. What's your third lock? John from Cincinnati now now hung okay so high sex and the city is K. So I thought that would be the bubble because to me. I thought maybe we'd have the ones pranav whichever one was assuming. Where the two locks and game of thrones is the third one and then I thought we'd argue over sex in the city versus curb. I haven't wire versus curb and then the wire to win. I think because curb is amazing and I think like in terms of iconic nece like curve can come and go. It's on for a little while a personal curb. Reveal the full results of the poll. Later did you see that? I did a whole film which to show. You saw the poll went. I think I saw I saw how going when I voted. Yes so curb. Came in last of the four comedies. I think it was thirty. Rock community and arrested development last. I checked the polls ending as well. Can you make the case for me? And these are the. Are you saying that these are the most critically acclaimed? Hbo Shows or are the best. But but what is best me? They like the the best to like. I like that. These are the shows that define HBO IN MY. This is like four most successful because Dan night say for sure. Game of thrones sex in the city and Sopranos. Happy one too. I think if you go to. Hbo Headquarters and they were going to commission a Mount Rushmore of HBO. Okay they have stringer bell. Here's what we've done yet Right would they have McNulty up there in the because to me? What makes the case for the wire because I know people love it but I feel like it's more of a cult head than it was never a commercial huge? Hit even even winning awards. Slee I think do they had zero emmys. I think that one nation for but not for like an acting or best drama best wire best like wire-cutting in the background there. So if you were out so underrated but I don't think that it was ever a tent pole flagship show. I don't think it was either. But at the end of the day it's very commonly referred to as the best. Tv show of all time. It's it's number one or two or three or four in fact you could say. We're doing rushmore. Greatest shows of all time. And let's say we had the sopranos the wire breaking bad and madman or something like that Or at least dramas. Let's let's throw out the comedies for a second Nobody would would quibble with the wire being on there. And that's all networks all shows that were just boiling down and you want to leave your wires. One of the best four shows of all time. You won't put that. Well I think if you do polls it's up there. I'm sure and Chester's charts. It's no lower than third or fourth chesapeake wire guy. I think there's a big wire guy I mean. Is there anything else? That would be inconsideration here. That we're not mentioning. Pope people really like the leftovers but again people really like that but again it wasn't like it was like a critical be plus an audience people. It wasn't like the biggest hit ever on. Hbo and it wasn't a critical. Dr I think you have to be at least one of the two at this level to to be like the curbs or the wires just to make the case for curb than I do feel like that. Curb probably has a bigger impact on sort of the pop culture than Wire does all right. Should we make all this week and look I I? I'm just telling you that it's it was on the bubble. I'm not I'm not fighting necessarily against the the wire I I am leaning more towards the wire but I just think I don't think it's the slam dunk of a HBO defining show. I hear what you're saying but I don't know what the fourth would be if it's not and I think curb was never a huge at either curbs on the air now does pretty small numbers. Would that veep veep is very good but I think if given the choice between veep and curb I think her abused I'm trying to do like if there's any other shows. What about our is is like the poor man's version of of the dramas also not a big hit is is great. If we're doing eight I would consider. I mean Alan. Sepang were all says without is. There's no sopranos that I feel like that in terms of the importance to HBO. I think is is more important than the wires. I don't disagree but I also think it's not as good of a show and nobody. Nobody really talks about ours anymore. ounce and walt us. Yeah well he's he's that's too inside baseball. Yeah like I'm saying that's his. That's just John I'll give it to give it to the wire but I think that the wire I feel like that is in some ways become overrated. Where so underrated. Maybe it's overrated. Wow what are other things? That are so underrated. They're over eight. Put It on the wheel. If you I did have overrated things as the last thing I got off of my list I mean most overrated things right now season. Five of the wire is that great. It's better than any other shows any other season but it's not as good as as season four of the wire orders. Ben Every season two in any other season. Yeah it's better than every other every other shows. Every other season is what I'm saying so the wire season five versus any other shows bidding. How about this? The why it's their. It's their fourth or fifth season. I think it would beat seem to in most people's rankings but I like season two so let's say there's another show sports best season equal the wire Susan five definitely not. That's my that's my position. Maybe the Sopranos and I'm not. I'm not saying it's promise isn't better than the wire is probably a lot tighter than the sopranos. I mean as much less wasted energy and also far fewer episodes and shorter seasons. They've rob yeah. Wh-what's we that was the sopranos is really just Gilmore girls for not excuse me is gossip girl for men. I did not viral. Tweet this week. so what about the the wire versus breaking bad season for season breaking bad's it's interesting because bring bit doesn't have a lot of ood that season suck but they definitely have episodes aren't great Okay and I'm not a big. I think I think the bring bed finale was so cartoony also I don't like it as much as I don't think they totally botched it but I think it was like silly either way you know. Look I'm not being a anti wire in terms of its stinks. I'm just saying that I think maybe the there's flaws for the y your crowning okay. Fine Okay but I'll put it as the fourth face on the HBO. But who who's your person who you probe up there stringer bell. I think you probably go. Stringer Bell Okay. Yeah so. That's Tony Stringer Bell. Sarah Jessica Parker. And who do you do? From game of thrones now ran. Well I feel like there was a better story to be on. Game of thrones the breath. I think that we probably I think it should be John Snow. But maybe WANNA have Generis dinners with the dragons. I think you need to put the Dragon. Just one dragon. Yeah Okay so character that never speaks during the whole series and has shown.

Loved ones visit this week where they got all see their kids. But I'm looking for like the opposite of that where you know somebody like my family like goes on a trip for like a week or two honestly. I would much rather see an episode. And you're saying that they flew people from America to Fiji Broom. Tv episode would much rather see like how chaotic the plane was. How awful like some situations like one parent or grandparent for like four kids seem like a nightmare honest? Yeah Yeah I would have been a bad time to travel to Fiji on a flight. That had nothing to do with going like all right honey. It's our big vacation to Fiji. And it's why are there seventy kids on this plane? Yeah no for sure. Maybe they charted a separate plane but it seemed terrible. Yeah I don't think they chartered a separate plane. Alright Akiva let's dive into our Mount Rushmore discussion here and we have a bunch of ideas and now can you tell me about how we got to this point where the ideas came from where. Josh Lemur Came into this. Yeah Okay So. This idea is the longest reigning wheel idea industry. The show over a year will be hard to be broken. This has been on the Wilson saw last April. It was originally pitched by sleeping Shimon. Josh Lemur Josh. Lemur added a made a Google doc and people able to submit ideas so we got hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of ideas and he sort of said like. Hey you know. Here's the whole list. But if you want. Here's tailored ideas towards you. Robin you AKIVA. Any broke down my categories there's movies and TV and sports include a music and pop culture and more each going. You and I are going to pick five or more a piece and now we're GonNa make our Mount Rushmore but definitive like there's no argument. Whatever we say is the official Mount Rushmore. Each thing okay and in my mind just to sort of establish My Rubicon for Mount Rushmore. I think that we're looking at things that there are many of and because there were some ideas that were submitted which were just like a like a list of things that basically trying to come up with with an example of You know things things to do when you're bored What's the mount? Rushmore that to me. That's that's not like a a well defined enough category to be coming up with things that could be so iconic that you would carve them into a mountain face. Why would agree yeah it would be hard to carve like the idea why God Juggling? I don't know how you do you. Do you know giants about Rousseau? We wanted things that were a little bit more that we could come up with a a list of things that were more defined. Okay so yeah. We're trying to be specific. We're looking at a bunch of different things. That's where we're coming from Anneke van. I are coming in with our own ideas and we will come down to a well-defined Mount Rushmore. For each of the things that we discuss net sounds good. Okay Akiva So where do you WANNA start from? The predetermined Things that we both came up with. Why don't you give us your first list okay? Why don't we dive in with a man whose name has come up a lot recently? The podcast that there was some talk in the bracket of ideas to go and take a look at his most iconic roles. Like here we are how about. What is the Mount Rushmore of Tom? Hanks Films Yeah. I think that's a good place to start. Okay we'll see also now if we were or correct if we could have stretched this out for like an hour and a half hanks movie bracket I think thirty two is tough. I think you could really get down to sixteen and I think that you would have a very strong bracket I think that when you get down to thirty two. You're getting into Where he's living in the airport. You're getting into a lot of things where the terminal is going to win. You don't even think it would make the sixteen I don't know I think it's probably like a fifteen seed in one of the brackets. Yeah well you need some blogs in the first round to get it started. Yeah okay all right Akiva You have any no doubt about it. surefire. Tom Hanks films to go on the Mount Rushmore of Tom. Hanks films I will. So let's talk about it so I think my like hanks. Familiarity starts with a League of their own in ninety. Two right now is this. Are We picking the best four movies that Tom Hanks has been in the best? Tom Hanks roles or we picked you know what I mean like what. What is the criteria? He's this is the essential hanks so I would not say pick a movie that maybe like hypothetically let's say Hank's is in the. Let's say Tom. Hanks was in the Godfather to and had a small role. I would not say that that could be eligible for this short us. That is not an iconic. Tom Hanks Phil what if he's like the second or third lead though forgetting the second and third lead but I really think that he's got to be the We're looking for stuff. That's the mainly. I think that we might come across the film or to where he is. Not The guy but you know that it's up for consideration but So are you saying that you would put a League of their own on the Mount Rushmore? No I don't think so. I liked that movie. But if we're going by you know best. Hank Rope has best. Hanks roles like he's got some great moments. The peeing stuff in that one. But I don't think it on my short list league out. No I don't I don't know if it'd make my top ten either. Yeah okay. I think it's really my first tanks movie. I don't know if I you know if I would consider anything from the eighties like are you a big Fan. You're you know maybe began. I'm a big fan but I don't think that I think that I would just start with the one. The no doubt or is forrest. Gump that yeah. No doubt the Mount Rushmore. Yeah now one of the reasons. I didn't want to do the movies. We're GONNA argue like Philadelphia Fun but are You Philadelphia Guy. He won best actor for. It's fun but it's I Oscar win and I think I have that on my Tom. Hanks Rushmore if but if you re watching if the criteria was like four to like send to someone who's never seen a movie for Hypothetical Alien Comes Down Wants the C O. I hear you got this. Tom Hanks guy sounds great. If you're giving him four movies to watch are you giving Him Philadelphia? I'm not sure if you were if there was like some sort of Tom. Hanks Presidential Library. And you weren't carving the Mount Rushmore to go there. I think Philadelphia would be up there because it's his first Oscar win and I think it's a major turning point in his career. Tom Hanks is like a comedic actor. I think that splash could be inconsideration for this. Tom Hanks Mount Rushmore. Because it was his big break. Where if you say okay well? This was his first starring role and then his career in the mermaid. The Star of splash. Newell he is the host. This person with the big speaking role in splash is the center. She doesn't remember he does. I think she doesn't speak for a little. I don't know if I'm going to be confused with a Little Mermaid or not law murder Ursula coming. Yeah but anyway that Tom Hanks though through the eighty s and into the nineties. He's kind of a comedic actor and he's in things like big and the burbs and Joe versus the volcano. He's in like comedies than Philadelphia. Comes ALONG What does that nineteen ninety three? And then he wins a best actor. this acting Oscar. He goes back to back with that and forrest gump back back in ninety three and ninety four and that changes the whole trajectory of his career where he becomes like the most iconic serious actor of the next decade but best four movies. I'd say forrest gump for sure. Did you like sleepless in Seattle. I'm not a big sleepless in Seattle. Guy. I mean I guess. A sleepless in Seattle is like a commercial success. But I think that sleepless in Seattle. And you've got mail I think are Kinda indistinguishable from other in the rear view. I would agree with that your road to perdition. I saw it in the movie theater. Could not tell you anything about it besides Tom. Hanks and Paul Newman Yeah. I saw a road to perdition with a lady before I met my wife. Bat at and I fell asleep during the movie. Yeah it was very dark. It was it was it was. It was very dark and it's always raining. It's like very law right. Yeah Yeah it's a new wash movie but it's raining. It's like very peaceful and I was delighted like I was happy at the end of it is like I like a good nap. I was really tired. I was a counselor in camper special needs because it was a long day basically it was a sound machine for you road to perdition. She was furious. She's like why'd you spend the money on the movie? Why did you come? That's like I didn't plan and falling asleep. I didn't come here to take a nap but she was not happy. Yeah okay all right now. You know yeah The Green Mile. I've seen that a bunch of times. I like the Green Mile. Yeah but I don't feel like that. Green Mile is on the Tom. Hanks Mount Rushmore. The Simpsons movie. I didn't remember. He's he has a voice. I I don't know that So I feel like you're getting lost in the weeds here uncle okay. No I'M GONNA just we're doing a little. I am debates on. Are you a Captain Phillips Sky? People like saying I'm the captain now. Yeah I do like saying I'm the captain. Now that's always a funny joke for me whenever that's in anything but I don't think that Captain Phillips is one of the most iconic grace chat roles where it could be in the bracket of thirty two and when he played sully that too. But I don't think that any we're looking at anything really. I don't think we're GONNA look at anything past two thousand here for the Tom. Hanks rush how all right so I was GONNA. I was GONNA agree sully. No SAVE MR banks not a fan of Kevin Phillips. I like but I don't think that's in the top four. Yeah so you're saying we're going all the way back to angels and demons. Nobody cared about four bled Davinci Code. Now here's all the way to code. Was a big box office success. His.

It's fine and I didn't mean to give off the wrong idea. Overall things are it was a rough morning Easter morning and that was not great because my kids where they were up from just being a holes from like five o'clock in the morning and then they proceeded to be a holes get yelled at a ton of time. But my wife which might. That's my least favorite thing that my kids do is make my wife mad because that I go out of my way to not be making her mad and then these guys just come in and completely put her in a bad mood which really harsh is my mellow. And then she's upset and then what? What was their reward for an hour half of being complete a whole make my wife mad a bunch of candy and presents at six thirty A. M. Wow an Easter egg hunt not start morning but overall the other overall things are things are fine. I was could not have been more thrilled to be talking to you last week in the morning or anytime for that matter. But that's that's where I. I came in so so so displeased with my family situation last week I had thought actually today which was I. Don't think other than my immediate family. The people I live here with I do not think I've been within six feet of a person in a month. Yeah sounds like you're doing it right like one person but I mean like you've probably been the market or whatever I imagine you have at some point within Lexus feet of the CIA. Have but I have. I'm now a point where I have not been myself to the supermarket for like three and a half weeks now. That's really good. I mean that's really good. Good delivery situational. So we don't really but the Yeah No I. It's a full month of not. I asked my land like wait. A new landlord. He came a signed document. Maybe for six feet of him but not within another human being pretty crazy. Okay you missing people know now. I mean I missed like like restaurants you know. I don't find I maybe missing people in a few months. I'm okay right okay. Yeah I'm fine all right Mount Rushmore today and idea that it's been on the wheel for quite some time. We're going to be.

That's all it's important for us. Listen that's a bonus yes yes. I did find myself several times last week Ready to get into arguments with people on the rene sub read it and then all no. Yeah Yeah what's usually pretty positive placed and we weren't doing about. I don't know I get very feisty with I feel like I feel like I get blamed for everything. People don't like about this podcast. They sound smart. Yeah I don't know I don't think it's just me with like four hundred different Alta counts. I hear you. I don't know I feel like the things that people don't like about rob has a podcast proper. I feel like that.

It is just <Speech_Male> a goose.

Have <Speech_Male> you know game mechanics. <Speech_Male> Attached is to them <Speech_Male> and so they kind <Speech_Male> of translate into a game <Speech_Male> more readily <Speech_Male> where making an agoos <Speech_Male> was kind of works. Really <Speech_Male> well so I would struggle <Speech_Male> with that.

"And we are back once again. Let's crank through a a few more listener. Questions shall we shall we shall. Here's Joe Joe Says Hey split-screen they've never been in before his let me say I love the show I. I only started listening in January when I wanted all the anthem hot takes I could find but now I'm and can't believe it's already November. My question is actually linked to how I only started listening this here. I thought I'd check out. The older episodes wondered if they'd still be relevant. Mostly yes it can be a great trip down memory lane for games. I remember playing or news. I remember unfolding. The funny thing is is though that a lot of the larger themes are totally relevant discussions of games service big companies hoovering up for their talent for their projects back then Amazon and now Google crunch and rather game worker should unionize. So I'm guessing you all. Don't spend a Lotta time listening to those early episodes. When I'm sure you think a lot about patterns in the games industry do you feel things? These are just repeating themselves or companies. Keep making the same mistakes or does it feel like things are improving even if the same issues keep coming up that is such. That's a good question Kirk. Give us an answer Yeah I mean of course. It's true that a lot of these issues are you know. It's not that they keep repeating. Its they're still there or at least as the issues he's talking about crunch in game workers unionizing and work conditions. I mean these are just issues. That things are things that have been a problem this time so but also games deserved service purpose and tech companies taking talent like those are interesting trends that just keep like moving in cycles. It's just funny like Amazon. If you look at Amazon's attempt to get into gaming aiming it was just like that the Amazon thing in the Google thing that does feel history repeating itself Games as a service to me just feels like one long arc like it's just a thing that started Kardashian has continued but yeah I mean this makes me think of a slightly related thing. which is I see and I just read a lot of game reviews in game criticism? And there's such gotcha thing where their conversations that repeat every four or five years mattia. See you nodding. I know that near to Jason. I know you're aware and this is something that if you're the longer you write about video games the more you see it and I remember when I was first getting it. I'm sure I did this to you. Know started writing about two thousand ten right and it's like oh I got I've got it like I've got the take and then you write a thing and you know some others reading it sink thinking Oh you know. Okay that's cool but like so-and-so's said it better for years ago in everyone's just forgotten down the Internet memory hall so that I think does happen and for a long time really annoy me. I'd be like Oh my God. Are you serious. People are arguing about whether the word mechanic is Useful or whether it's story and Video Games can work Baltin Game Chevy one or two or it's right but then I do think in. This is the question of does it get better in this case. It's kind of does the conversation get better and I think that it does and actually it's important that the conversations repeat because there are new people having them and that's kind of the perspective I have now is. Yeah they're saying the same things some of the same things and at times you WANNA be like. Oh my God just read this thing that you clearly didn't read because this already happened and then you haven't even better take but generally speaking. I think that the new people are having the new conversations. And that's just kinda how it has to work and it isn't just a spinning like a treadmill. It is kind of moving forward. And they're the original conversations did happen and so things repeat but they don't totally replicate and that's kind of how I you know at least don't don't feel annoyed. We buy it now so you're talking more about critical conversations. Correct this is I. That was right. I was saying this is a slight tangent. But it's a thing that this email makes me got it in terms of the conditions. I actually like I said I don't see them as repeating things. Most of these things are things that hedging ongoing for the past decade food not well but that's the depressing part of this. Is that like the crunch. Conversation has been happening for at least fifteen years and beings have not really changed changed that much. I mean some companies are certainly trying to get better at it but like if you talked to anyone at naughty dog right now. I'm sure they are killing them. So I mean I know their question of like pace of change and how long it takes for things like that to change. The conversation has changed in some ways though because the response to it has changed or at least my anecdotal observation and like it did not use to be that people talk about cruncher reporters specifically talk about crunch and that the response to it would be people writing in about unions like that didn't used to be a responsible. The people add like much unions. They still don't but at least now they're kind of like there's something that should be done about. This people still defend huge game. Companies unlike side with them in ways that I still find really strange but I do feel like that gravitational pull has changed slightly over the course of these conversations happening many times over and and over again and I actually feel like it is pretty similar to the critical takes conversations happening over and over again like I feel like the way that people talk about diversity in Games has changed a lot in the past ten years years like when I started out it was so basic like just so mind-numbingly basic to just feel like what if a female character was it a game like we couldn't even get there ear and like that alone was like no no. We can't have that. Don't run everything we can't. We can't do that. That's crazy we've got. We've already got metro and beyond good and evil and it's fine so so you you guys. He decided that discourse and then like you just keep rolling snowball up the hill or whatever metaphor you want to use and like. You're you're having the same conversation over and over again but like each time it changes slightly and there are new people getting involved in the conversations as well and there may be having their exact same. Take a gun but it's also I feel like it has advanced. It's just been incredibly slow. It's the pace of change thing. If you look at the conversation that was happening you know last month versus the conversation that was happening two years ago it can feel a little dispiriting. 'cause you're like oh it's the same conversation but if you look at the conversation that was happening last month versus the conversation. That was happening twelve years ago. It's a much more significant difference and it is the same conversation but yeah we've come to a new place so that's kind of it's helpful to have been doing it for a while. I guess because then you have that bigger perspective. Fair points all around Let's move on Mattie turn so this questions from Adam who writes hi Jason Mattie and Kirk loved the show listen every every week. Here's my question. Have you ever played a game. You utterly disliked but then later revisited and realized it was brilliant whether it was a slow opening that stopped you from getting to the good stuff breath or your opinion just purely changed and you had to admit to yourself that you were wrong. The first time bloodborne. Yeah so good answer. Yes as games or like that a lot. I think I played what demon's souls and didn't love it. I kinda got. It was good but didn't really got it so maybe that counts. I'm trying to think though like utterly dislike team and then came back and realized it was good. I'm sure that there has been but I'm actually having trouble thinking of one. Mattie what about you I feel you like this happens to me with fighting games. Sometimes where I'll be bounced off of something really hard. I didn't use to be his industry fighter. I found it bizarre and I also used to really hey charged characters which I just didn't understand how they worked. And that's those are the those genre game where you just have to keep playing it and ideally. Have somebody explain it to you. Well starcraft craft is actually another example of this. where I I liked it? I wanted to enjoy it more but I was like. I don't really get this and then I had a friend who is really good. starcraft sat me down and just be like. Here's some really really good protest build orders. Let me just get you started on this and then I like I said either Jason never playing you. I've heard how good you are. I'm not interested. I'm not already I mean trust prepare. I'm not good at starcraft but I got to a point where I was like. I see what's enjoyable about this game and I'm enjoying it it but I feel like I've also had the opposite thing from this question happened where I really liked to game and then I go back and play it again later and I'm like this. This is shit like what I thought that that I think is pretty common especially games. We grew up with and have not aged very well another Let's except for Super Metro. which is age perfect? It's perfect game. Perfect perfect video game. Let's move on. Why don't we do one final question for this beautiful? This is a perfect Thanksgiving and question. Kirk give it to US okay. This comes from Christian. Who writes hi? All having thoroughly enjoyed untitled goose game pro tip for anyone who hasn't played it before. Do not accidentally return to the starting area until the game tells you to. I got lost and then spoiled it for myself. I got to thinking as to what other unwittingly hilarious animals would make for a good game so each of you. What untitled other animal game would you like to see made with a video game animal instead of a horrible goose? A few to get you started untitled head crab game untitled Abo- game untitled echo game where echo the dolphin swims into a wall for four hours. What are you waiting so okay? So this isn't a video. I think that we can expand this to regular animals in addition to video game first of all untitled Turkey game where you play as a Turkey and you have to avoid like. You're in the slaughterhouse. And you you have to get picked up giving cash booklets fat. Like I feel like that's an idea that's lived Turkeys Estonians Turkeys great escape Turkey. Avoid being killed three dark time of year for apparently every single Sunday night before Thanksgiving giving during Sunday night football NBC has been showing just like footage of Turkey. Slaughterhouse in me like well getting set for Thanksgiving and it just as the Kareem Thing Turkeys commentators Al Michaels and Chris Collins or if it will be like well that not a good week for those Turkey take it you got to kill the Turkey yourself. Everyone knows that right that other other animals until dog game. Yeah I mean I feel as an untitled Kagame would be. GimMe another like a first person cat game where you kind of mischievous cat. That's so on those like untitled use game basically is untitled cat game because it's goose titled Raccoon Game. I feel like raccoons are already animal. That does the things that goose dozen the game that it's it's not as funny like the goose works because it's not an animal you think about that much right because it makes such a ridiculous noise yes.

Snake should be should have some I've actually I've grown pretty partial to Arthur Morgan. I don't know if he deserves to be on there but I just wanted to shout at like I just really love Arthur Morgan. I think he's a great video game. I do and I have to shot out Cate Archer. I would want Cate Archer kid archer. I'm thinking of your favorite characters and that's definitely one of my favorite video Divers skybridge three hundred. I think would get consideration for me. Garrett's guilty Riviera. I think it would be a pretty strong contender Allie from the last of us. Yeah I think you would. It be like angry. Ellie or young. Angry Ellie TB determined. If she definitely definitely angry to along with villains. I think Kafka Mattie mention Sulforaphane and there's a good that's what we could do there could be to. Mount Rushmore. Is the villains rushmore. And there will be across the street from the highway would be in the middle and then you could look at either one and they'd be like opposed to one another and also they're all kissing. Yes yes well. There's some kissing happening on each of the mountains awesome. I'm GonNa read this next one here is Charlie and this is a long email so I just made it a bridge. Charlie writes even though I won't be able to play death stranding branding Jason's comments about playing death standing on the switch even playing breath of wild instead. Got Me thinking if you only have intendo switch. I'm one of those people. How could you approximate approximate the death stranding ending experience? Here's what I came up with one load breath of the wild to go to high rocastle find a metal bookcase in the library. Three some in Wolf Link Amoeba required for for using your magnesium through and bring the metal bookcase the designated parts of Jairo while we'll flank. Accompanies you you the bookcase Wolf link all have to make it to the destination to complete the package still livery. I really would like to see people doing this as a speed around or something and like Muslim. You dividends death death stranding death death of the wild death the wild. I would add that you need to sneak like you can't really get into fights like we're keeping this kind of stealthy. This is the first half dusting and then also once you make the delivery you then have to watch all of the cut scenes in breath of wild that are saved on your game back to back like he just wants them. Yeah so that isn't a question is it's just funny mail. Let's keep going Mattie your turn share so. This one's from Josh. Who says tell us about your dungeons and dragons tabletop? RPG journeys recently read any cool new adventure. Modules tried out. Roll twenty any new game sessions. Tell us please points points so I have an curried tabletop. RPG's while I play Table Games we've talked about starting D. session or some kind of role playing system session but we haven't so actually having been playing now I haven't I haven't so the big joke everyone makes is one hundred percent true. which is that once you have a when you have? The indeed group together becomes impossible to find times when you can actually get together because someone out of town this weekend and then someone else can't do it because they have a feta this again. It happens that my group Including drew Baldwin. Who is listening to this? Show right now. Avid split screen. Listen my split screen or my Dean D.. Group happens to include a few people who are actors and our teachers and have just kind of unorthodox hours notice just as a for instance they have the theatre group. I was like Oh yes fan outrage for these are my NYU friends. So honestly that's your answer so in other words I haven't played since July and then the other part of this occasion I've been the d. m. d. m. and it's been entirely me coming up with the story and campaign and everything so I- prep each session like spend a few hours putting in to put a few hours indeed session before we start playing and that itself is just like so tough with a newborn and other responsibilities so that's been tricky I wish there were ways like I just don't think it's the same to play online. It's just not. It does not equate. The sits does not create the experience of Plane D at a table with a group of friends That said I was just texting when my group and trying to make a session happen soon so hopefully I will have more experiences to share in the future. But I promise split-screen listeners that next Indiana Indiana. We'll talk about it on the show in some capacity. Yes anytime replanning tabletop game. I talk about it then here. It's not. It's not an elaborate secret. We're keeping from Josh. Trust Trust me we should play sometime. Oh my God okay Kirk. You're up okay. This letter is this email comes from connor who writes. I am a working musician in New York City and as the years have gone on working on the thing I love I find it harder and harder to enjoy music on its own I tend to avoid it during my free time as my brain cannot stop analyzing what I'm hearing Kirk. You're one of the most joyous people I've ever heard who makes music fulltime and still has the capacity to listen and explore and analyze while seeming to while seemingly retaining the absolute love for it. What would you say it gives you the ability? And Mattie Jason Do you have things in your life like this games or otherwise WII and have you been able to overcome this issue so kirk. Have you been elaborately faking. And you actually despise me. I have some thoughts on this. So for starters so I don't make music full time in that fulltime implies that that's if that would be the main thing I'm doing for income which isn't the case and I know musicians who do and I think it is a lot harder like what connor is talking about. If you're if you're playing gigging every single night playing everyday like you're writing music for all kinds of things like you spend your work hours making making music. It can get harder to kind of have that just listening for pleasure things so because I don't do that and I have this kind of I was trying to maintain a balance which is not always easy between like video games and talking about gains and writing and making music and talking about music teaching and all these different things like. It's all in that balance I think for me anyways and that let me come to music fresh and have that experience of listening to it and just really enjoying what's good about it but also I don't know I mean I. I love listening to music and I always have have. I think like being a catastrophe for eight years and not making a lot of music especially for kind of for a five year period there. It made me. There will be times where I would sit down down and just put an album on with headphones and I would be like emotionally overwhelmed a little bit by the music and by using it was by this feeling of fuck what am I doing. It's like this is the thing this is my thing like. This is the thing I do more than anything else and I think I can tap into that feeling now because of that a little bit like I've I've been thinking about this little lately so that's part of it too. I think there was a period of time where I wasn't doing nearly enough music and it made me appreciate it even more and so I still feel feel that a little bit and so I should try to share that with people. So that's just me but you guys run into this kind of thing with with anything. Yeah sometimes I feel like I've run into it with different things over the years. Here's where if you do something creative for work. It's weird you can. You really are changing. How you Orient Yourself against that thing? Whatever it is whether it's video games or like you know and I worked at the Mary Sue I'd have to watch? TV shows really quickly for work sometimes and like sometimes. That wasn't as pleasant as you might imagine. It would be or just other things where you just have to suddenly only engage with something for many hours and on a deadline. Anytime we're doing that you're really changing. How you feel about the thing and I don't have like a hot tip for dealing with that and it's also a very uncommon problem that doesn't really necessitate a hot tip because who cares unless you're a entertainment journalists but I would have to find find ways to re explore the thing from another angle like in the case of game? Sometimes I'll get sick of John Raya and I'll just be like. Oh maybe I hate games now because 'cause I'm so tired of games and I'm like what about this other completely different kind of game. That's surprising me and delighting in a way I never expected and then I'm like Oh yeah games James can be. This games can do this. I don't know if that would work for music exactly but it might like doing something really different and wearing something different with music and being like Oh yeah music is it can also be this. Music can do this. And that's exciting again. I don't know Jason Women you so for me. I have never actually gotten sick of video games. Never in my life which I think is shocking. True gave her really. I just I don't know I like I could play I could maybe 'cause I don't waste my time with games that that I'm not enjoying like I'm the I'll never show allo right. You don't like get assigned reviewing shitty game. That you game reviewer for a job when I was when I was freelancing back in the day I definitely slogged through some shitty games but even then when it was like my spare time I would just WanNa play something that enjoyed instead but the to answer connors question the thing in my life. It's like this is actually reading nonfiction and especially reading like creative nonfiction journalism or like any sorts of journalism. Where you're I I kind of like emceeing the sausage I know so much sausage is made and I'm always it's tough Where when someone writes this story and it's nonfiction and it's really good? I'm always just asking myself after every single sentence. How does the writer no? It's like how. How could the right or possibly know this and it ruins a lot of nonfiction for me because so much of nonfiction books are so heavily fictionalized or like made aid so creative based on the details and stuff like that like everything from Erik? Larsen's like the devil in the White City and all those other books historical book city rights to like bad blood led by John Kerry Korea-u which is a great book about theranos in that whole. That'll scam But that's another. It was a great book but I'm reading reading everything I'm just like there's no way the author could have possibly known this like he's just a putting the pieces together based on what he was told second hand and kind of creating a story out of that and point being seeing that when you have done what I do or when you've done what we do for so long it's very difficult to just read something uncritically. So that's that's the big big thing for me. Yeah it's the sausage is made with video. Yes when if you're like a game designer heard from a lot of people who make video struggle to have fun playing them with music. It's like if you make music all the time. It can be hard to remove that you hear what's going on and certainly when I hear attitude horn section or something. I'm like you know like I can't hear here. That like that happens or as writers were all writers. There's definitely the feeling of when you're reading reading takes on a different quality when you've done so much writing and then so yeah anything that you do the more you do it the harder it gets breaks as good if possible but if it's your job that can be tough so All right why. Don't we take a quick break. We'll answer a few more more questions before saying goodbye and we are back once again. Let's crank through a a few more listener. Questions shall we shall we shall. Here's Joe Joe Says Hey.

"I think of plenty of funny emails gotten from companies. I used to tell Jackson slack about how I wanted to write a post about all of the bitcoin plus e sports related emails. Because there's a surprising public relations confluence between those two topics. I often get emails from people who are like dubiously in the world of sports and dubiously mining. BITCOIN getting bitcoin trying to get other people to be involved in Bitcoin in some way to get a lot of fun emails about that which I guess I can't legally say they're scams investigated them but a lot of them are often seem very scary. Sling me 'cause there's kind of thing we're east. Sports is like a Buzzword for people and it's like he's sports it's just business. There's money and the same way that Bitcoin bitcoin. I don't know money and they kind of have that quality separate games used to just generally fall into that category but like now. They're sort of a known quantity and so e sports like the buzzwords is worth scam emails fall under and as a person who writes about. He's still sometimes I. I'm on a lot of those Melissa. Still funny emails. What are you advertising using? What is this email even saying? So there's that But also you know I'm a woman on the Internet and I've been writing about video games for like over ten years which is terrifying to think about and it it also means. I've gotten some incredibly dumb emails. I don't think they're very funny. But you know just bad stuff. I don't I don't it actually even think it's worth getting too but it's it's usually emails is what I would always get and I just I don't I don't leave my DM's on on anymore on twitter. I just put my email and my bio because I feel like that slows down the ability for people to there's an extra step you know what I mean which I think is a classic thing that women do online. But I don't know that's my hot tip. I guess Jason was the funniest stuff you well. Yeah I get a lot of stuff. I won't get into all the negative beauty of it turns into articles. Good well I get a lot of horrible horrible things which I won't get into. I actually have a fun anecdote a little more fun anecdote than and rather than get into the the drunken the Anti Semitism and the the more controversial. But here's a here's a fun story so a couple pull of weeks ago. Around the time that the POKEMON discourse was reaching its fever be I got an email. I think it started on twitter. I got a tutor. Dm from someone who said that He. He knew someone at the POKEMON company who wanted to reach out to me about like work conditions and morale and Blah Blah Blah Blah. Okay sure here's my secure email just my proton on email like Jason Jared Dot com for time DOT COM And he said Okay Great and then he reached out to me there and then this other person claiming to be from the Fuck Company. Reach out I to me there and then I started getting messages from both of them. Just like a string of nonstop messages. Then I started getting two hundred yards from other people on top of that there were just like hey did you hear from this person. Hey did you check that email. Yeah it started turning into like five different people at that point I was like okay. You know what red flags on top of red flags here. Because I've been hoaxed. Many people have tried to hoax me. Many many times about all sorts of things and one of the big red size is like if a lot of people like. If you're really whistle blower you're not gonNA tell L.. Anybody like it would be stupid of you. Tell a lot of people that you're whistleblowing so it would be unlikely for a bunch of other people then contact. This clearly was a scam so at some point I was like. Hey Hey can you give me your phone number. Let's talk on the phone or skype. And so he sends me a phone number and I look it up and just do some cursory internet searches and track track. It's a some guy like some random dude and his twitter account and like he's tweeting about him out and stuff and I'm like Oh my God seven some kid in his early twenties you just phone number and then so just just out of curiosity I didn't. I didn't WANNA call him just out of curiosity like Hey Usually what I do in this sort the thing is asked for corroborating evidence like at ninety badge or someone like that you have an ID badge firm York that you can send me. and He sends me this image and it's it's like pokemon remind company. Id Badge in Japanese right. So I've been learning Japanese as you guys know so I can read the basic like the Basic Kana letters letters. which are all you really need to read a name and so there's a name on the ID badge? And so I can read it and Google and it turns out at some veteran pokemon like company company. Employee has nothing to do with this guy. WHO's been there for like thirty years? So of course he posted his badge on the Internet. Somewhere and I was just like man. This is the dumbest scam that I have experience yet. And it's funny. I just got mad at the mall for wasting my time. There's nothing worse than people singer time deliberately but anyway that's that's the funds stuff I don't get into the negative stuff. Let's von many. You Wanna read this next email. Sure so this one's from Daniel who writes while trudging through my steam in backlog. I decided to give final fantasy. Thirteen another go after falling off it multiple times during a tough battle I was rudely reminded of the fact that if the lead character dies. Is You get a game over. This is one of my most hated mechanics and RPG's if I can give a phoenix down to an ally why can't they give me one it pulls me out of the game a bit when things just don't make sense like this. I can suspend disbelief that my party has magic powers but I have a hard time believing that if a particular party member goes down the others just give up and die to you. This leads me to two things. I'd like to hear your take on I. What are your least favorite game mechanics and gaming in general and second? Do you suffer from thinking about logistics. Dick's death stranding aside. That game sounds like logistics the video game and are technicalities to the point that it pulls you out of the experience. Oh Man Yeah. That's a terrible one in persona persona does the same thing. Yeah in the Persona Games. It's really fucking annoying because you'll just because they also have instant death spells. I was GonNa say it's just like unlucky. One key strike and then you lose an hour progress it. Yeah that's really annoying one One thing that really really bothers me. There are a lot of things that really bothered me as mechanics in games one of them. Is anyone listening to this. Show knows they're one of them. These days especially is lack lack of auto save and like like losing your progress. Allah Persona Five If you die in a battle just because I am so old and and so out of time. There's so many games that I just do. Not Have the patience. Replay an hour of any game so that is the thing that will most that is most likely to just like would make me stop playing something. What about you guys? Kirkwood isn't what have you. Yeah I think. Loss progresses a huge problem now and he's asking about game mechanics. which is like a little different than you know ban check pointing or or like unstoppable? Death cut scenes like into human or whatever wasn't that the one where the Valkyrie comes and takes you up to Holland it takes a minute and a half every time he died and so those are like bad things but bad mechanic I R. I don't generally like mechanics that make me lose progress like if you you die you begin to get worse. This can be a thing in destiny bounties for example when you go into the crucible and kill people but if you get killed your progress meter goes backwards grants can just be. That's a really potent thing to fuck with and you know Soles Games and games that make you risk progress. That can be really cool like it can work really well to raise. The stakes aches and be exciting. But it's very intense in the minute you start getting into like you let the player fall into this negative loop where you know. They're losing and losing losing more and then an hour later they're back farther behind where they were when they started an hour ago. That can just turn really bad at least on me like it. Psychologically difficult so so I don't. I don't like that mechanic though. It feels like you're you're not losing progress because the progress is kind of in your mind like what you learned about the limit i. I'm not saying that souls does that at all. Souls does a very good job of playing with the same kinds of ideas. I'm saying like when you're playing with that you've got to do it. Well and be careful souls generally do you do it well but it can dicey thing to play with so there are times where it can turn bad mattie. What about you a couple of different questions within this question like one of them is the idea of a mechanic that contradicts the games own logic which I feel is a very common thing like yours of more? Let's revive people in the heat of battle but not when they die dramatically in a cut scene which is like a joke. That's told about very often but off. Yeah like every game has some equivalent one of of that but then there's also the idea of just a game having some logistical trials. That within the scope of the game I don't know if they even make sense for the world like the most recent example in my mind isn't US training. Actually I think the logistics in that game are pretty forgiving. Perhaps because there are so many auto save options in that game so you can really redo emission and make sure that you have everything you need and it's super easy to go back but like fire. Emblem I really hate the system of changing out your weapons and leveling mm all your shit in that game all of that you I I never started to like it. I just found it tedious annoying like going to the shop up getting the battalion's recharge it all felt so administrative in so boring to me and I really just wanted there to be a button that was like give everybody the most powerful weapons for whatever. They're freaking type is I. Don't even care. I don't WanNA think about this. But now you have to manually go through and like make sure everyone has the crap weapons or like the number of times that I was started battle in that game and like a couple of people have forgotten stupid weapons equipped for some reason and like the other ones would be in my little vaults and I'd have to go back out and do you like okay. Let me I mean Redo this because like one of you broke your lance or something and now you have a bad weapon. I find that stuff so annoying. That really takes me out of a game like plot. Wise is even because I'm like this doesn't feel like a real problem. This feels like a stupid problem that would never have. I am being forced to do any of this. But yeah she's way. Hey better. Training has like a triangle. You hit so you just frigging reorient. All your stuff and it's good like every game should have that Diane having read Celia Hogan's book and like you ex design because I've always been fascinated by earliest increasingly fascinated by it. But it really goes to show how you X. and you X. designers there's that's user experience for anyone who's which is ties in an interface and all that stuff. It's so the difference between logistics being fun active part of the game and Shitty Chore. Sure you don't want to deal with so many have terrible you X.. Where like you have to go through every fucking store like you're talking about with each item and their other games where it's like a fun part of the game is optimizing demise and doing your load out in doing it and it's just gets into even little things like you know like how it feels to move a thing around or what buttons are are you know queued to what action it really is a fascinating weird thing that is not really well understood even by me? But I'm with you on that for sure especially good and you can tell when it's bad got you extra experiences. That's true all right. Let's get to the next question. Kirk it is your turn okay. Hey this comes from Sheron who writes hi Mattie Kirk and Jason. Here's my mail bag question. Who would you put on your Personal Mount Rushmore video game characters bonus question question? Who would you put on the Mount Rushmore all video games? My industry-wide Rushmore is probably very similar. To most people's Mario Lara Croft master chief. And pacman my personal mount rushmore would be murrow doomed Guy Nico Belic and Tim from Braid I think. Let's say the Personal Mount Rushmore. Let's do that. I WanNa hear each of your personal. Not Rushmore Jason. You don't have to do all of them just like who are some of the characters that would be on your personal mount rushmore. Okay my personal Mount Rushmore. I think Mario Oh has to be on there. I think link has to be on there and I realized that I'm choosing to Kinda silent protagonists but I think they're iconic Hanoch enough to be there. Let me think so. Let me let me think while you're thinking here's a couple that I would maybe throw out there to put on there. There could be some villains on their videos are so defined by their villains that it could be like show Dan and a big daddy and like the G man..

"Mount rushmore today thousands of bikers roar right through south dakota's black hills during the sturgis motorcycle rally but in the early twentieth century there were very few good roads which meant it was hard to get here at all. That's why south dakota state story and dwayne robinson wanted to build a monument that could lure tourists to this wondrous landscape. We saw this group of now famous granite spires known as the needles imagine using them to carve giant portraits of heroes of the american west heroes like lewis and clark buffalo bill cody and the great sioux chief red cloud would fought and died to keep the black hills off limits to minors settlers and even the kind of tourists robinson hope to attract but when danish american sculptor guts and boredom saw the needles. He wasn't convinced they will be suitable. For large scale carvings arctic's untold robinson. He feared that would end up looking like misplaced totem poles but he soon found another location just a few miles away but he i thought would be perfect. A giant wall of solid dren big enough for multiple carved portraits each up to six stories tall there was he declared no piece of granite comparable to in the united states. He also thought that a national tribute to u._s. Presidents would be more appealing than heroes of the west last.

"mount rushmore" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"It's amazing that you sit here and it's take to say good on a team for hiring the right man for the job, but they did second down. Guess who's knocking on the door of the National Football League's. Vaunted quarterback mount Rushmore. Mount, Rushmore really drew Brees. Okay. All right. And I'm not just saying this because he called into the rich Eisen show on Tuesday, although that helps. Drew Brees in the remarkable saints road win in Atlanta at age, thirty, nine spinner Ahmed his way into the end zone of force overtime in which he ended the game on a drive that didn't put the ball hands of Matt Ryan and ended with him taking the ball in his hands and leaving cross the goal line for a score. That's not why I'm saying this except to say he's a thirty nine year old doing what Brady last year which is balling out. He currently is only behind Ryan Fitzpatrick for most yards thrown in the league so far this year figure, he is a two in one quarterback this year without him, the saints would easily be, oh and three. He is in my mind, even with Patrick Mahomes doing what he's done. If through three weeks of this league year, he is your clubhouse leader for MVP which believe it or not. He's never won and in the game in which breeze did all of that. He broke Brett farve record. For most completions in NFL history and to this. Add that to this list of statistics. Are you ready for me? I'm just I, I'm going to read this out. Super Bowl championship bowl, MVP got it. Eleven time pro bowler seven time NFL passing yards leader. That's the most seasons leading the NFL in passing yards ever. He's led the NFL in passing touchdowns four times. He's a comeback player of the year once as we all know coming back from injury in two thousand four, you could say it again with what he did signing with the saints. Don't forget the dolphins passed up, signing him for Dante Culpepper in the guy who's doing that is the college modern day, Lombardi, Nick Sabin. He's a Walter Payton man of the year ward winner. In addition, these are is NFL records most gains with three hundred passing yards. Three hundred passing yards. One hundred and ten of those most games with four hundred passing yards. Sixteen of those most touchdown passes in a single game. He did it once with seven. His career completion percentage is sixty seven point. One percent ecartee leads the NFL three weeks at age, thirty nine. You know his passer completion percentages right now, it's north of. Eighty percent. That's good. Consecutive games with a touchdown, pass fifty four seasons with five thousand passing yards all time best with five right there. If he wins the Super Bowl. And gets the MVP award this year. That puts him on the NFL mount Rushmore. With who. My mount Rushmore Montana, Brady Payton manning. Okay. And then there's that fourth that I think is active in subjective to everybody else. I think the top three or undisputed, Mike, current, fourth right now is far. Over Elway how come just the iron man streak, longevity MVP awards. I know many rings his Elway. But if breeze wins the Super Bowl to give him multiple ones and his first regular season MVP award, which by the way with deserve at thirty, nine of Brady did what he did last year at forty and what Brady's doing right now. So but doing right now, thirty nine. Got to put him in there with everything. I just said. Call us for four, two full rich with your mount Rushmore, or if you think I'm a little bit nutty. Take those calls third down down. Now, then Levy on bells got to speak. We got to hear from you Levy on. We got to hear from you because. You're not gonna get it. It's going to be very difficult to get you traded. And I'm saying this from your point of view, it's very difficult to get you traded when a team is out there. Wondering. What do we give up for a guy that we don't know if we can sign him. And part of the reason why we don't know if we can get you now is because you've already said you're saving yourself for your next long-term employer, and we can't talk learning long term contract with you based on the fact that you'd have to sign your franchise, tender even play this year..
