Doj theory 'em and polkadot among others. He's up right now but he's usually running at a loss still. These had success on monday. The mr gog twitter account said the hamster was up. Nineteen point four one percent outperforming the s&p five hundred for the past three months and quotes according to the two anonymous german men behind mr cox's day trading. They got the idea when discussing. How a lot of people invest especially in crypto without really knowing what they're doing so quotes we were joking about whether my hamster would be able to make smarter investment decisions than we humans do and quotes and despite the fact that mr god is apparently making smarter investment decisions on occasion the pair insists the project is for entertainment purposes. Only and that. You should not take advice from mr cox who after all is named after the mt cox cryptocurrency exchange that used to be the biggest in the world before losing eight hundred fifty thousand bitcoins from its customers under mysterious circumstances and subsequently going bankrupt.

We're voting on amendment after amendment Most of this is going for the nda. So this is one of those wild weeks where vote after vote Most of them are democrat amendments. Because as you know they usually don't take republican amendments and some members of the freedom caucus have said that the nda should not be voted on by republicans until we see certain other actions taken by the white house. What's the state of play is going to go through. What's the latest number. Well there's a lot of us in the freedom caucus that are taking a stand against it we are. We're against drafting our daughters strapping young women. Especially when there's seventeen million young men eighteen to twenty five already signed up the flex services and our current Active duty military forces or at one point three million. And we're not even at war so there's no need to even be talking about drafting women at sample ridiculous. Of course we know women are capable and they're equal but we're just not into drafting our daughters our our wives and and don't think that that's that's necessary. It's another one of those Racing gender you know social issues. It's just pointless with that we can't trust this. How can we trust the military the leaders especially after they abandoned americans and and look what they did they arm the taliban so there's a lot to unpack

Leadership Lessons From Trekking up Mount Everest Twice
"But i love the story you told during your x speech where someone said. Well you went to everest. But you didn't get to the top choices. I guess she didn't get to the top ever so you can tell a story about being i think. He was at j. P. morgan or smith barney. Right j. p. morgan central. Tell that story to our listeners. Because i think it's brilliant story about failure and success. Yeah so so understand when we got back from the mountain in two thousand two as the first american women's expedition sponsored by the ford motor company. Because were the first team of american women attempting this mountain. We had a lot of media coverage four hundred fifty media outlets fodder climb and then we didn't make it and so we had to go back and do the big media tour talking about this failure and it was such a public failure and to have to talk about this failure constantly. All these media interviews just felt like a punch to the gut right because everyone was so focused on the fact that we didn't make it and i really internalize that failure. And i went to dinner party when i got back home to san francisco and the host of the dinner party was introducing the gas and he said oh. Hey this is my friend. Alison she just climb out address. And then the guy that was sitting across the table for me. He looked at me and he said oh no way.

You know we were just a couple of hundred feet from the top and had to turn back and gave him this whole lecture about getting to top optional. Getting down as mandatory and he said that's all great and everything. But here's the you know. The bottom line is if you're in at the very top then you didn't climb it. It doesn't count. So i just i was like all right What do you do tough guy. And he said. I worked for j. p. morgan so of course i replied with Oh no way you are the. Ceo of j. p. morgan and he said no. I didn't say i was the ceo. I i work in fixed. Income trading my said. Oh well then. I guess you don't really work for j. p. morgan do because if you're not the very top that it doesn't

A history of Mountweazels
"Suppose. I wanted to start a company that sold maps i hire cartographers and spend a lot of time and money going out and gathering data. Because i'm just documenting something which exists in reality. The end result of all my hard work and investment is going to look just like other maps. That are out there already. So why couldn't i just skip all the effort and copy the maps which already exist. Sure i'll change the font and the colors but fundamentally the end result is going to be the same either way right. This is a big problem for any maker of reference products maps dictionaries and encyclopedias. You can't copyright facts but you can take steps to show that someone is a plagiarist or violating. Copyright they do this via copyright traps copyright traps are nothing more than false information which is putting reference material to catch people who copy their content. If you copy everything without checking you'll copy the false information which will be evidence of plagiarism. Promos famous example was in the nineteen seventy five new columbia encyclopedia. they created an entry for one lillian. Virginia mount weasel. They created a full entry in the encyclopedia for which was totally fiction. According to the entry lillian. Mount weasel was a photographer who was famous for her photos of south. Sierra me walk whatever that is according to the entry quote. Mount weasel died at thirty one in an explosion while on assignment for combustibles magazine unquote while there was no cases of anyone actually copying the mount weasel entry. The term amount weasel is now a term for a copyright trap. there's a million. Mt weasel facebook page and the lillian virginia mount weasel research center website which has fake interviews with people who knew her as well as fake copies of combustibles magazine while this is one of the best known examples of copyright trap. It's hardly the only one. The nineteen forty three edition of webster's twentieth century dictionary had an entry for junk attack spelled j. u. n. g. f. t. a. k. The entry read quote junk noun. Persian bird the male of which only had one wing on the right side and the female only one wing on the left side. Instead of the missing wings the male had hook of bone and the female an eyelid of bone and it was by uniting hook and eye that they were unable to fly each one alone had remained on the ground and quote. There's no pronunciation given so. I'm pretty sure i said it correctly because there is no way to say correctly. The new oxford american dictionary has a definition for the word espa valence. Their definition of the word is the wilful avoidance of one's official responsibilities. The thing is this fake word has actually found some usage and there is now an entry for in which which references the original new oxford american dictionary definition. Personally i think esco valence is a perfectly crumlin word problems. The heaviest users of copyright traps are matt makers in cartography copyright traps are known as trap streets trap streets are fictional street or locations which are used to check to see if someone is copying their map. They're usually very small streets or alleys of no importance as no one actually uses it as an address because it doesn't exist. There isn't too much of a problem if they appear on maps.

I was lucky enough to be employed by the wpa and three and a half years later on. I'm still here and united loving really enjoying working for a really interesting industry and wanna be anywhere else. Key question for me is what is the double idea. Seem to what are they a organizations so double. Ada what's the fda and come from. That's a great question. You know the people here in canberra and my predecessors ever blackwill used to talk about the alphabet soup of zone automotive associations got the mt aa the aa. Ada the sei all of these organizations and they're all all sort of unique in iran. Why but the double. I is the industry association. Which exclusively represents franchise.

Interview With Ciaran McCrickard
"Today i am really thrilled. I am very happy to be talking with karen. Cricket karen is a as his website describes them a freelance photographer over in worthing in the uk specializing in architecture portrait and editorial work but to say that really does not do justice to his career at all. His work has been on the front page of every national newspaper in the uk. He has a portfolio of celebrities and public figures. That i think is the envy of anybody working in that field and most interesting for conversation. Today he has a brand new projects underway which is bright and colorful. And i'm not about to give away any more of it. Because i want. I want to hear it described from the author's own voice karen today how are you today. I'm good thank you scott. Thank you for coding tonky. Let me on the podcast. I really appreciate it. Well this is going to be a real pleasure. I have to ask because the news as recording this the uk is getting the first doses of the covid vaccine house. The mood over there. Is everybody pretty excited for this. A little skeptical. Yeah a real mixed bag. I think people are excited. But i think we're slightly skeptical simply because of the way. I think our government is handle it so far hasn't been will beating a world class so i think at the moment i think the government and riding on this vaccine in the final with us country have it. The people are the kind of nevada. They don't necessarily know where they're gonna abbott Trusted really. I think we're just gonna see how it goes is obviously the first day so we'll just say well. I hope it all works out better than anybody's expectations because photography as well as every other profession on the planet has been really affected by the lockdowns which brings me to to. Let's just jump in the deep end here. You have a project that is really interesting and really impressive called parks and no recreation thrown and before we get into it. We should tell everybody that your website. And i hope they go to. This sort of follow along is mcgregor. Photography dot co dot uk mcgregor m. c. c. r. I c. k. a. r. d. photography all one word dot co dot uk. And they can get to this project from the about page at the bottom. You've got linked to the latest editorial from the guardian. Which is this but there's also a separate site. I'm a cricket. Photography dot e set dot com slash parks to no recreation. So give it a shot folks. You're gonna find can't tell us what what is parks to no recreation will. It was born simply out of the pandemic under lockdown. Obviously the whole pandemic star raises heading january february. And then i know it's things starting to really slowdown in february with jobs dropping off. 'cause i do work in london and i do abroad. The that stuff abroad really dropped off after march but the stuff in london to fade away a bit and then obviously march the twenty fourth think it was came along and everything just disappeared and i think a lot of us were staring into an abyss. Really we didn't really know what was happening or what would happen in in the future. So once march twenty four th came in on are starting to think. I need to look for different things to do. I need to look about finding another way of bringing money subject to kids and wife allow allowable will kind of thing so i went out and i started. June speculative stuff. Mt beaches empty days. Mtpa the nice to after a couple of weeks to try and pushing these. These specs pitches to the newspapers. I wasn't getting anywhere. And i realized is because there was so many other photographers out. Who in the same boat because the country had shutdowns. There was no concerts. Politicians went moving. The royalty weren't moving around those no sports games to all those talk. I used to do that stuff. Had nothing to do so everyone was out doing the same thing so a couple of weeks. Anita do some different so driving around with my girls just exercise trying to get you know do anything. We could really to get out a house every day and exert. She won't matthias. Projects i started was single unwonted potomac and it was actually photographing oldest stuff. That people would clearing out of their houses and carriages loss because people were home all the time now they can coach their offices were board said they clean out the houses on the street for people to take and this ranged from absolute junk to stuff that you think well i can actually have the semi on home kind of thing so i start around photographing just driving around all this stuff that people would leave and that was great after a while i noticed that people only have a finite amount stuff and they were taking it and it was all around anymore. This is after a couple of weeks. It was all going on. I roy okay. Let's think about doing more empty stuff places. The arm inhabited anymore about football pitches. Tennis cool things like that. But they're all the same from above or any point the rule of saying some slightly different colors. So i think i think i did. I went to a crazy gulf. Cut range thing that name kills co two and it was usually close down. So i'm gonna see what it looks like from above so i got the trona look. Good it look nice. There was competition that was colors but it was. It was really really busy too. It was a crazy sensitive like dinosaurs volcanoes all this stuff kicking off in mobile. They look good. But i'm going to try something else. So i went round to my local park zone. Ikuta wall traffic control and got up and shot from higher up. So you can see everything and then i realized actually close. You got to the ground low. You went the more abstract it became. The battery looked
Biting the hands that would feed: Ethiopia
"Humanitarian crisis is unfolding in ethiopia's northern region of tigray. The turmoil began in november when civil war broke out between the federal government and regional forces led by the tigray people's liberation front or teepee aleph within weeks troops had entered the regional capital of mckelway and prime minister abe committed declared victory but the fighting continued. Thousands have died in the conflict and more than two million civilians have been driven from their homes. Some sixty thousand fled to neighboring sudan now. The threat of starvation looms most of the regions. Roughly six million people have been without adequate food water or medicine. For weeks. ethiopia's tigray region is facing an alarming -tarian crisis. Basically because aid workers are not able to get essential supplies to those who are affected by the war which is essentially the entire population of the region. The vast majority. Tom gardner is abba correspondent a top regional official and that's one appointed by abby himself. He told aid workers a private meeting on january. The eighth that hundreds of thousands might starve. Meanwhile a western diplomat told me we could have a million dead there in a couple of months if humanitarian access is in opened up significantly urgently. And what is daily life like in tigray right now outside of michaela the regional capital where things are marginally better banks closed. Markets have stop shops shuttered. Fuel is run out. That's been the case. Since the war began really in early november. Last year i met one man who fled from tigray to addis ababa and he said to me even if you have the money you don't have a bank if you have grain you don't have a mill if you have mill you don't have power and that seems to be pretty representative from the accounts. We're hearing on top of that. Hospitals are running. mt hospital. staff have not been paid since october according to medicine some volunteer doctors without borders. You've had more access than most every hospital. They've been into they found entirely looted. All of this is just the knock on effects of the conflict and tigray which it sounds is still going on right so the war began in the start of november. It was the culmination of long standing. Tensions between the which ran the region and for thirty years was the dominant force in the federal government. In addis ababa the capital as well until two thousand and one thousand nine when they were pushed out following mass protests and replaced by abby half mad prime minister the abbey and the pilaf simmered for two years before rupturing eventually towards the end of last year. More than two months later. The left appears to be in. Disarray is being ousted from the regional capital and it's waging something akin to an insurgency in the countryside now it's troops control of the countryside particularly in the center of the region. It doesn't control major towns its leaders including the ousted. President have been essentially a well. We haven't heard from them for over a month. And some of the founding members of the been captured or shot dead so the fighting continues especially in central tigray but the prime minister. I be met. He believes it's only a matter of time now before the rest of what he calls. The gender are captured or killed but this whole conflict was the result of the federal government looking to take control of restive region. Now they have arrested region where the humanitarian crisis. What are they doing about. That does with dispute these accounts all the humanitarian crisis earlier this week. A spokesman for the federal disaster management agency said in an interview that there is no starvation in ethiopia alec baldwin. Dr a couple of days ago the federal ministry of peace claimed it was distributing a to almost two million citizens northern ethiopia. And the minister of peace told me that even reaching central tigray which is live under the control of forces so that seems implausible. I mean our forces regularly attack military convoys so it's impossible for the government to deliver supplies safely and then on the other hand emergency supplies being delivered by the un and international ngos. They can't get into these areas either because they're not allowed by the army which controls access an agreement that the un signed last month with the federal government which was supposed to allow them and allow aid groups to travel freely throughout the region. That's basically not been honored for. Un staff was shorter and detained last month. For entering areas which senior government official later said they were not supposed to go and an points to the key question. Here which is is the government being deliberately obstructive and a lot of people in the diplomatic and humanitarian community. Recommended is one u. n. Diplomat told me that the lack of humanitarian access is part and parcel of the war campaign.
A Conversation With Tricia Caiati And Kate Shannon
"And so i thinking about it. Reached out to some other after's and like high pastor communities are absolutely amazing and i'm so thankful for the music therapy podcast community. They're awesome there is a facebook group called music therapy podcasts community. Podcasters music podcasters. Yeah if you go there you learn about like everyone has like updated podcasts. That are happening in everything too. So it's definitely a good group to join on. But so tricia and i were like okay. Let's see if we can make us idea happen. Let's see if we can figure out a way that people can earn c. n. t. Ease for listening to podcasts. And we figured it out which feels crazy it's happening and it's real it's real life so That's how mvp seeing this kind of born has a yeah true. Do you feel ready to diamond. Tristesse nagel into Yeah i think so. Go ahead start skill. I mean as good as we're gonna get we'll see we'll see how things happen. We'll see how the cookie crumbles. I like her like to improv. So the first thing we want to talk about is really just the basics of music. Therapy podcasts collective is Tricia and i both being podcasters not only wanted to find a way for listeners. To be able to earn credits by listening to podcasts. But we also wanted to find a way for podcasters to feel more supported. Have some sustainability with podcasting If you're a podcast or you know that it takes a lot of time effort money. It takes a lot to keep it going every week. But i think that's part of what we love about. It is that we're putting out free educational content for people and it's it should be free. We want people to access all of this stuff and we wanna be able to continue doing that. And not burn out Find a way to make it sustainable. So we really had this to kind of two different pronged approach to the music therapy. Podcast collective which you'll hear us refer to as mt p. c. Which i just think it's hilarious but so are focused. I was really like okay. Let's figure out how we can make this happen. How do we put together. bundles of podcasts. And all these different things so that it's accessible so that it's sustainable and so that it's quality which those are big parts of our mission and we'll talk a little bit more about those so But our biggest thing was just trying to figure out. What does this look like. There's not many other people that have done this in even other areas other therapies and stuff so we had to kind of create a model and go with it but art of all of. This is the super open feedback. We want us to be what the community wants it to be So if newer if he listened to this if you get ideas if you like it if you don't like your feedback let us know all about it and we really wanna make it something that is accessible to everybody in. That really works for working therapists. So that's really kind of music. Therapy podcast collective in a nutshell But tristesse going to go a little bit more into those three kind of core parts of our mission. The accessibility sustainability and quality so tricia. You can take it away. actually. I want to add to your last point. I so as far as we know there aren't a ton of people doing this continuing ed thing through podcasts. In like many fields. So kate nyah. Figured out like we said we have. We have approved credits. Ready but we're not. We don't have all the answers. Were only two people and again. We want your feedback because as a as a community we can make it so much better like so much more. They're still many different ways. We could make this happen Thanks haley 'cause like podcasting is just so versatile. And i think that having like been having a podcast for a couple years and like seeing other people's podcasts pop up it's amazing inspiring to see everyone's different take on podcasting in the music therapy community Yeah and i just love that. So silicate said Accessibility is a big factor for us. you can listen to podcasts in the car if we ever get to a place where you're commuting again or if you're one of those people who has been commuting throughout this whole year thank you for your service so you can listen to podcast. Anyone has access to them. They're out there for free. Were putting out this content all the time so yes the core part of the credits of the opportunity. Cmt opportunities is out there. It's accessible you. Get it the other thing about accessibility and a big part of why we're doing this. Is we want to make the music therapy. Profession a more accessible profession and so that's going into our mission to funds donate and create scholarships for music therapy students and interns. Were really excited about that. and yeah i that was one of those things when we first talked about this idea. I think that's just something i've always wanted to do. I wasn't sure how to make it happen. How can i set up a scholarship. How can i. Donate to existing scholarships. And i'm really grateful that and the other people we talked to were like that's awesome. Let's do it. Here's an avenue to get there
Traveling To Snowdonia
"Let's start with a peak at the natural appeal of the largest national park. In wales snowdonia the highest peak and wales in fact the highest peak in england and wales is called snowden sits in the heart of the snowdonia region and in one of britain's first national parks these welsh islands offer outdoor adventures gorgeous backdrop and draw countless tourists each year. Well skied martin. The land of its is here to help us make the most of our time in snowdonia martin. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me there. So i've been to your home. Snowden is right in the backyard you grew up there in northern wales snowden in snowdonia national park mean to you. It's a place. I tend to walk quite a lot. It's just a huge and beautiful area. When i say huge. It's massive eight hundred and twenty seven square miles but you don't see that many people in it feels massive because it's it's windy it stark. It's pristine yeah. Small road not allowed to crowds. How tall is mount snowden. It's the massive height of three thousand six hundred fifty feet above sea level at its peak but because it rises more or less out of the sea. Yeah it has the aspect of bigness about it. It's so interesting because here on the west coast of the united states. Three thousand five hundred feet. It's like this is sort of a medium mountain pass for britain. That's a big peak. That's you know. Ben davis is the highest one in britain and there are few mountains over four thousand of the snowdonia national park. You have all of wales peaks over three thousand feet high and on. I think there's only one pecan english over three thousand okay. And this is the north of wales in. I've traveled on wheels. A fair bid. I just if you got limited time. I would recommend north. The peaks only Less than four thousand feet but didn't The british Climbers have mount everest. Actually practice in the snowden area. They practiced in that. Nobody had ever used oxygen on a mountain before. And so they had a stroll round be had Two systems an open and closed. And they thought oh. The closed system is much better. But what they didn't realize goes onto everest the vows and clo- system froze so the luckily they had a couple of open systems with them but they had some rugged enough areas in north wales where thought they could have some practice there. And you do get to some mountain. they're not resorts alert. Sort of hiking centers or something there. There's some beautiful towns. There's town called. Beth goulart galaxy. Guess who described beth killer it's a mountainous area and therefore towns villages. They nestle in the valleys. They don't sit on tops of hills and bathe galax which means ballots grave is useful in a little bowl with rivers running through it stone building. Oh everything is built on. Everything is built stone bridges over the babbling drone bridges and of course slate roofs because wales used to be the slate production center of the world at one time that right so when we think about going to north wales as a visitor and we want to do some hikes. What advice would you give for enjoying the nature of snowden national park and bringing up some calories at the same time you can hike all levels. Mt snowden itself with acid in welsh is an attraction. And there's a railway that runs up if you don't wanna walk for three hours just take the train and this is kind of a cute little tourist steam train. Yeah it goes from some berries up to the top and that's a family out it is. It gets crowded. Some of what i was going to say is that snowden is like a magnet people have heard people know that so that eight hundred and twenty seven square. Miles will get away from snowden. You'll see fewer and fewer and people which is a lovely thing. It is very empty area. It is and if you wanted to have some rugged memory you could hike it without the steam train. Take what five hours or so three hundred. Well five hours up and down if you if you know. It's a nice day. It's a lovely day. Beware say this flat up. Beware of times of year like easter when it's considerably cooler the top dress. Well okay
The God Who Suffers: How Far God Will Go for Man's Salvation
"The title of my message is the god who suffers when we think of god. We consider the fact that got us. Writers got his holy got his loving. And god is good. But here's something else to consider about. God as we focus on the death of jesus god has suffered. Why would anyone want to suffer if they didn't have to but he did suffer. I mean he didn't have to. He didn't want to but he chose to suffer. Listen to is as description of what jesus who was god in human form went through when he died on the cross in isaiah fifty three we read. He was despised and rejected by men. A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. He is born our grief and carried our sorrows yet we esteemed him stricken smitten by god and afflicted. He was wounded for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment for our peace was upon him and by his stripes. We are. He'll he was a man of sorrows or suffering. That was jesus. But why did god suffer answer because he loved and he loves and that means it he enters into are suffering as well he enters into the suffering of those who've lost loved ones he enters into the suffering of any person who is in pain of some kind. You need to know that god cares. God understands god suffers. He understands what you are going through. So if you're going through any kind of suffering no this you're not alone. Jesus has been there and he's walked in your shoes. Listen to this passage in hebrews two. It says it was necessary for jesus to be meet in every respect like us. His brothers and sisters so he could be are merciful and faithful high priest before god and then he could opera sacrifice it would take with the sins of the people since he himself is gone through suffering. Mt sion is able to help us when we are being attempted. So you're saying. I'm being tempted right now. I'm going through hardships right now. I've been abandoned by people i love. Jesus has been there. He knows what it's like say. I've lost a loved one. He knows what that's like. So you're not alone and you're suffering but why did jesus have to suffer and die. Couldn't he have just expired. In a simple way to be scourged and beaten up the beard pulled from his face to the up to be insulted and mocked and ridiculed and humiliated. Why did he have to die. Such a cruel death. Listen to this because there was no other way dissatisfy. The righteous demands of god. God plays by his own rules and he said the soul that's in shows shirley die and the scripture teaches without the shedding of blood. There is no forgiveness of sins in the old testament when they would sacrifice by various animals. That was a foreshadowing of things that were to come. It's unlike the death of jesus was sort of added onto that. Dan rather was pointing toward the death. Of jesus jesus was the fulfillment of all of those sacrifices as john. The baptist said of christ. He's the lamb of god. Who takes away. The sin of the world. So jesus was the fulfillment of at all all of those things where foreshadowing something to come or i could more accurately say someone to come and that someone was jesus. Listen to this calvary shows how far men will go and sin and how far god will go for man's salvation limb repeat that cavalry or the cross shows how far men will go in their sin and also how far god will go for men salvation. Jesus knew he was going to die from the very beginning and he spoke of it often. No one took his life. He laid it down of his own accord. Jesus lived in the shadow of the cross. From the moment he entered the world. Sometimes people think across was sort of an aberration or tragic turn of events where everything sort of went off the rails. No that's not it at all if that was the plan. That was the master plan. Or should i say the master's plan i remember when i was a kid and i would watch movies about jesus and i was fascinated by jesus even as a young boy. My grandmother used to have a portrait of christ hanging on her wall. And i would just look at that many times then think about jesus and whenever there was a movie about him i would watch it with great interest and i was fascinated by him but i always thought the story ended battling are that someone should rewrite this story. You see because everything is going in a perfect trajectory here comes jesus born of the virgin mary. performing miracles healing people raising the dead doing wonderful things. The greatest teachings ever heard he has a group of followers and then he gets arrested on charges and he's crucified in. Yeah he rose but still. That's not good. I didn't like that story but that is the story. That is the greatest of all stories. That was the purpose he came for. But how can something so senseless and so cruel have any purpose answer. It was the ultimate purpose and it had the ultimate beanie god. The father was the master of ceremonies at the cross. Let me repeat that again god. The father was a master of ceremonies at the cross. Sometimes people like to place the blame of the death of jesus at the feet of the jews. They'll say the jews killed him sometimes used to justify anti semitism which is always wrong but it was the fault of the jews. It wasn't a fall in particular of the romans. Listen you want to get real technical. Theological god sent. Jesus die on the cross. It was his plan. In fact the scripture tells us and isaiah fifty three ten. It was the will of the lord to crush him. He has put him degree. Romans eight thirty two. God did not spare his own son but he gave him up for us. All and then over in romans three twenty five. God put christ forward by his blood to be received by faith. And i see a fifty three ten yet. It pleases the father. Bruce him he is. Put him to that please. The father to bruce him. How could the father be pleased by. The death of his son. Only wasn't pleased by his death in particular. He wasn't pleased by the suffering. He wasn't pleased by the pain. Christ's went to. The father was pleased by the redemption. That was accomplished. He was pleased that the eternal plan of salvation was now fulfilled. He was pleased that the sacrifice of his son was complete and many of us can now believe in him for all the evil in the crucifixion. It brought about an infinite good.
JRPG Report Episode 144 - The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Black First Details - burst 02

Bang three a craziness there. Obviously just mitt that there was really no time to reporter Record a podcast. Even before christmas was just too hectic so We're recording this on saturday. The twenty seventh just a couple days left in twenty twenty. Goodbye rents But we've got a lot of cool things to talk about today. I kinda wanna wrap up all the stuff that we've missed as it's been nine days since our last pockets. No i'm sorry that's not even right. That is fuzzy. Math is been eleven days since our last podcast. So we've got a few things to go over That have popped off. Since then. And i wanna kinda look look forward to sometime this week. Mean jordan are going to get together and kind of talk about What games we really loud from. Twenty twenty maybe even discussed some Game of the year options and then look forward to twenty twenty one as Right off the bat. We got a bunch of games coming out in the beginning of the first the new year. We got to tell you rods two. You've got bravely default to you've got he's nine And the newly Confirmed for some of five strikers. Just a name The the big big ones I'm sure there'll be others. That will be unfortunately lost in the in the way. So we're going to record that sometime this week and In lieu of any news breaking. I may just make that part of the normal podcast unsure on that. But let's get into it. I hope you guys had a wonderful christmas holiday I didn't have any games that i particularly wanted that. We're already out. So i just kind of asked Asked the parents for Email confirmation that beginning Today risa to when it comes out on january twenty six that was cool and i did end up much too. Many of your delight. Hopefully i'm finally going to take a dive into these series. I picked up. Yee's eight for only twenty dollars on the ps story. I could not refuse as the physical version just refuses to ever go down in price so i figured this was by far the best opportunity. Get in on. What many consider to be a very very good. Jr pg and at some point. I'll be playing. It don't really know when that's going to be but that's enough rambling We did have fell. Calm day Twenty twenty winter addition and we got a few tidbits of information about the new legend of heroes. Toddle kiro no koseki if you notice the thumbnail for this Podcast are the two newest main characters is a third as well but these They dig use some high-rise resolution images of the to unsure why the third one was kind of like ashaari pow We'll get you later but still no names for these two characters but we do have a bit of information stuff. You see that image. There's a couple other on our facebook and twitter feed of those two characters while they are. I say have that trails feel to them. I do kind of agree with what president condo said last time that at mediate Glance they don't appear to be trails characters. And i believe that lies in the fact that they are from calvert So they're going to look a little bit different and we'll talk about that in just a little bit. These illustrations were drawn by katsumi. Nama and the other characters are from alcom. Like i said the character's names were not announced to this game is coming out sometime in twenty twenty one in japan so those were the images. There were some other ones as well. If you'd like to see all those. I did put up a slide show video on our youtube channel. So you can check those out if you don't feel like clicking through pictures of via the website here is what we do know and i will just read this to you as this is the about for the new age of heroes karoo new koseki beyond the blue sky ahead of flashing light a land. A dawning resides cuba. There's no spoilers going on in here. This is all preliminary stuff in the news story arc. So we don't have to worry about that type of stuff the ladder this latter half of the trails. There is about to begin. The setting moved to the calvert republic in two thousand and twenty one foul calm release. Legend heroes kernigan the latest entering the trail serious as its fortieth anniversary rumors of work. The calvert nation is a multi ethnic nation experiencing unprecedented economic growth. Brought about by post war reparations. In a corner of the capital of a huge nation were immigration issues bringing about political instability. Okay well maybe. There are some spoilers in here okay. let's just get to the best. I'm sorry i read that. And i didn't think about it until just now okay. The command style action time bow system. You didn't previous trails. Titles has been revamped and that's going to set up an from a couple people. Let's just see what they said. Seamlessly transitioned from action oriented field battles to turn based commands battle to turn based command battle systems while making use of the unique elements the sixth generation combat or meant would try to pronounce his last time. I'm not sure how it is x. I f. r. x. i. p. h. a. z. Feel in a ballots to evolve from the previous trails titles. Okay so what does that mean. I don't. I don't know i really don't know how to had say seamlessly transition from action oriented field battles to turn based command battle systems I i mean obviously there's a bit of an extra element when you strike the enemies on the field in order to go into the turn based battle i. I need to see this in action to really know what they're even beginning to talk about would just have to wait and see You will feature many elements you laws. It's setting including a topics system which enabled together until such topics by communicating with. Mpc's out towns tra- gate situations in your favor when you act as a spray gun and that is the The character it's basically a detective. But they're calling them spring and alignment flame system. In which characters three alignments great and chaotic fluctuate depending on your own style influencing various status allies and adversaries and even scenario developments please look forward to allege heroes lowest entrance toasters depicted enrich expression by thumbs new original ingen. So that's that's pretty cool Here's what how they set up the situation and I get. I don't wanna get too much into this. The to emit the two people that you see in the image the one is the one call the speaker those are they say sometimes detective somedays negotiators and other days as bounty hunters. They're up for any job from any client. That's pretty cool And then the other one is Say to be a school girl wearing uniform. Prestigious school visits a rundown building located in old town in cowards capital. So that's the setting that's beginning of it. You can check out those images. Like i said there's a third character in the images as well with the two swords on his back and some long hair but we don't have any details. There is a battle scene that shows what looks like to be a craft or an art powering up but that from that snippet it does look to be turn based. So don't i'm so confused as to what to make. But i'm certainly excited about this one. But the lack of details and the promise of something new is leading to some question marks popping up. And i don't necessarily love that idea but it is what it is and until we learn a little bit more. It's just going to be speculation Unfortunately though that wasn't the only bit of information. And i'm sure we'll have a bunch more but Foul calm day twenty twenty winter. Also let us know about and this is not really affecting us as much. But they did. Say that a hatch marco koseki which is the one before this one and after cold steel four Clouded leopard entertainment will release a switch. Pc esteemed version of the game Sometime in summer. Twenty twenty one in japan in asia. I'm nearly positive. That's the same company that handled The transition for coastal three and four to the top of my head. So i came out for. Ps four in japan on august twenty seventh. So you know nearly a year later. They're talking summer to get that Switch pc version now. It handles the asian side of this and i s america handles the translation available. At least they have for the past two games In the cold still series in the west still no confirmation that that translation is ongoing. That have to assume that it is unless it's being handled by other parties I mean exceed did do the first two trills of cold steel games but at imagine that they are going to do this hedge amari as well and as soon as i hear something about that it will happen. It's certainly a good thing that this is happening and It could lead to a speedier at least for these games in the west. But like i said still no information on unfortunately. The last thing that they talked about was not briefly. Mentioned this last time the natto. noca- seki game. That is coming out in japan for For playstation four. This was the old Two thousand twelve least. Psp action rpg though some new details and images kinda showing the ps p version versus the Ps four version of it They're sent opposites gonna run at sixty frames per second on. Ps four with more vibrant graphics. Not being obviously these are things that you'd want to have updated from an old old system user interface options One thing that i thought was very interesting. And i'm not to say what they say. This game is not connected to the trails game. However the main character's name is now utah herschel now you trails players especially cold. Steel will know towa. Her last name is hershal So what they're they say there's no connection but then there's a connection is the protagonist and a boy from that island who attends and academy in saint elise. Those aren't you know aren't names that i recognized the from the trails series so it is very very interesting and i would be would like to know what that connection is at kind of read through it. You can read through the tales. Like i said before i am lower on the percentage scale To say of this game was actually going to make it over here or not. I if i if you say your day is gonna come today out outs. Action say no but would just have to wait and see. The original game did not look super impressive. So this isn't a game that i'm all that excited about to begin with but we'll have to. We'll just have to wait and see if that indeed happens for a lot of switch owners the next. Gop g they will more than likely be picking up is going to be bravely default to gain closer and closer to that february twenty. Sixth rolled wide release date friend square annex released new trailer for it albeit in japanese and have still not seen an english version of this yet so it talks all well. Supposedly it talks about wiz walt. The country established by those mejia's. They did it themselves to studies. The magic research institute But the the real kicker with this one and you can see it. Is this places overgrown. It looks like it was built kind of in the middle of it are on top of a giant tree. And there's just this tree just going right up through entire town is really cool again Trailer is how long was trailer of about three and a half minutes.

I know she also got the Spyro trilogy which. I really enjoyed those games growing up. So i can't wait to play those with her and relive those moments and she picked up mario maker to so. I'm not seeing that switch for a while. Maybe once she goes to sleep. If i don't have anything to play eck fired that demo. I would like to see how it is shaping up as will If you've got some free time and you're looking for d'you monster hunter rise. There are to say ten videos in total. Let's do a little no here.

They're not in the main game this something post post content but the fact that they're in their would open the door to other characters popping up from other games as well. So that's a cool thing The world inside of an item. I m worlds have mended. Detailed in this article on worlds are divided into several fours slash layers and the items level increases with every four. That you clear says weapons become stronger as they level up.

Say what do we need another. I p for well they still have it. And maybe we're finally going to get a look at it. Obviously this is going to be next generation.

The Most Important Chart for the Markets
"We start off tonight with the most important charter in the market. Because of course we would according to one of our traders check out the yield curve spread between ten and two year treasuries at its highest level since february twenty eighteen. So our rates off to the racist. Could this rate shock crush this record rally karen. You flag this yeah. I don't know it will crush this record rally. We don't want rates to skyrocket to quickly. I mean this is a big move but still you know. The absolute is seventy eight basis points but it is sort of telling us that the expectation is that the economy. Oh heat up and we've seen that. The resources traded that tim talks about. We've seen in energy. We're seeing it in the banks Even though they don't really aren't giant to ten spread they do trade that way. So it's indicative of the expectation of a heating economy. Maybe also more stimulus. So that's sort of how position but i also have a big inflation bet on because i do think there is a chance that inflation gets away from the fed and i don't know what they would do in the shorter to medium term the timeframe though tim i mean it's got to be a goldilocks right. Just enough inflation. Not too much inflation. It's gotta be just right. Yeah i mean it definitely not too hot not too cold and you have a case where normalized rates coming out of this and whatever that means also but where we were coming into kobe remember. We're somewhere between one. Forty one seventy five and the ten year so pointed out what the trades that have been beneficiaries or have had the extra boost that comes from this and the resources trade. I mean look coppers three fifty. We haven't been three fifty since march of two thousand and thirteen and some of the trades that look like it's back to the future in the resource look at steel companies. And i'm not just talking about us. Steel look at mattel which arguably the biggest deal company in the world or posco. These you know mt. pk ex. Those are names. you can track over here freeport. We talk about all the time. So i think you have a case where the assessment of all of this to me is more about normalizing. It's not that we're in great shape. And in fact i think we're in a tough place for markets and even some of these trades when we've normalized but we aren't near normalization at this point then later on fiscal even if that's disappointing number Infrastructure to me is is going to continue to rally in these trades member again. you don't buy commodities when you're when they're cheap you buy them when they're running and when they're expensive and i think there's a lot left to do here.

I can listen to an eskimo albums from start to finish and it's not from an ironic sort of reason. You know it's just it is what it is. Yeah it's it goes beyond just kind of novel make out music and and it falls short of being the william carlos like explorations in synthesizer or something that has just a kind of a fully exploratory. I made this crazy record just so he could explore the limits of recording technology. At the time. So right yeah. I think of a great sympathy for people from of international origin.

"Itself up into anybody so he was probably the right person to be the face of the king paintings although obviously the fact that he claimed it they were his without telling her is dubious at best and these paintings at the time the time they came out they were very dumb very divisive. The new york times critic center is the most grotesque and elsewhere. Yeah from new. York's world fair. When exhibited this sixty four world's fair a memo. Andy warhol said that it has to be good if it was bad so many people would like it which might be the perfect definition of kitsch and he was good. He would have been no catch. I'd say it's world. I think he kind of nailed it on that. So i was literally the first thing i thought about when i thought of kitsch was somebody's grandmother having a keen painting up on their wall and on ironically thinking that it's sort of the the height of sophistication yes like warhol keen was part of a movement perhaps at the beginning of that movement of this pseudo expressionist or you know there there were there. Were a lot of white kids painters and they would paint the puppy. Dogs and harlequins and All these other subjects that margaret would paint also but it was part of a a movement incredible amounts of success. These were being sold in department stores. A lot of things are being sold department stores. That aren't now but people mass produced these. There's a reason why everybody's grandmother. Yeah yeah i think one of the definitions as we examine kitsch in thing other Medium like music or architecture it some of the hallmarks. I've seen ascribe to it. Is that it tries to convince you. It does all the things that it's more that it's finer example does so like in architecture you might see columns or i see phil agreed Work around the the it might look like two or it might look like another finer piece of architecture. But it's but it's if you go into the cheesecake factory. That's kitschy architecture. It's it's using all this jazz hens spirit fingers to indicate that it's fine. That's fine design and architecture so like creed is the kitsch version of stone temple pilots. I i don't like our version of man if you're the kids version of certain temple pilots. You've really got several steps down the ladder. Yeah of yeah so yeah so anything. That's a you know we've seen film that delves into melodrama that is somewhat kicked so yeah what a fun fun example and. That's also something that that's one of those things those big eyed kids paintings of things that you see and you go. Oh this is something. This is good and bad at the same time so entertaining but yeah..

"It would be interesting to think of batman sixty as camp in its day but to act out currently in the year. Twenty twenty as batman in that era with that be kitsch. I have to. I have to think about that. Like if If there is like a serious. Take on batman and yet somehow there's big bright green pow or bammer with would that be splooge decamped with heavy camp. Would that be a hitch if that happened in just like if there is a very serious batman movie which you know there's the batman starring robert pattinson coming out if say seventy two minutes into this movie if just he punched one person and then then it just said like exploring that was the only reference that would that be kitsch with that be camp. I don't know but yeah see. Yeah yeah okay well while we up in Michael chose the topic so richard. I all right so my first choice are the keen paintings. Wonderful bigeye hating done by margaret teen. Although they were first allegedly done by her husband. Walter team as detailed india in the movie. Big is dan for sure. But you gotta answer you guys. You've all seen it. It's a. I think it wasn't very movie when it came out. I really enjoyed it tim. Tim burton definitely has this He's got like a a big kind of big idea. Low idea or like big low graph or does these big movies but then desert's low movies and he kind of he kind of rides the waves of in-between. You know i'm convertible kit charter zone. He certainly there's catch to his stuff he he one hundred percent will come up with one of my picks later on awesome. I i would expect nothing less So if you're not familiar with the burger king paintings they are the usually kids with the big giant saucer shaped is kinda mournfully looking at you. And she started painting those about in the nineteen fifties Husband walter who is an aspiring artist decided to start exhibiting them as as his own and he was more of a kind of an overly complicated salesperson so to speak but he.

"I just love the idea that his arch nemesis a crocodile. That he can't kill because crocodiles really aren't that hard to kill. I would think if you have a crew. You have a boat. You've got. All these weapons at your disposal. I would think you would be you should be able to catch and capture and kill a crocodile. That's That's That's like saying to the person that is afraid of going to. The doctor like just just go to the doctor it's fine. But if you're deathly afraid there's no way that you can. You'd like every everything becomes Everything becomes an obstacle and. If there's a crocodile it. It's gutting for your other hand than that seems like an impossible task. To me you know yeah, i. also love the fact that. You know the Captain Hook was played by Dustin. Hoffman making him the most Jewish. Of all of all of all pirates. Go. Ahead. The were he to have a different prosthetic. Would you have been captain dentures or captain? Peg. That happens if he didn't have one captain stump yeah yeah. Michael why was he on your list? what I liked about him is that his portrayal has been so varied From the you know early adaptions of him in like from the original story, he was more kind of elegant. and vicious used proper. He was not not quite foppish but he was someone that played by some certain sense of rules, which is why like Peter Pan always kind of represents this you know or is literally this young kid that is tormenting him because he won't play. You know he won't. He won't. You know a follow the rules in Pan is just like Whoa I don't what to do I'm a kid I'M GONNA fly around I'll cut off your hand and throw it to the crocodile kick you in the back and I don't you know. Wasn't me was I mean to me being proper. And I like that in the Disney version, he tournament to this huge coward. He's still even vicious, but he's just he's constantly he's just huge coward and there's nothing more delicious than seeing somebody that is just evil and just also terrified But the proper thing I think is what stood out to me the most is that he's like this gentleman pirate versus being like you know. A dirty crusty Caribbean type pirate that's you know. This has never has never washed. In his life you know I liked it there there's an elegance to him that. Is more kind of befit of just like a classic sea captain rather than you.

But you see them kind of like rolling around in like just a wheelchair looking one hundred and twelve years old and decrepit and like. All three of the guys are just like, yeah. They're wearing business suits in. They're just look like fo- gangsters like whether or not dressed up like rating for mortal combat I. I. Liked it. There's a variety of how they're depicted. They're like Scher were kind of were storm Gods. The have these martial art abilities. But at the same time, we also can wear pinstripes suits and just push a guy around wheelchair there. It's.

He wasn't big and imposing, but he looked always just kinda dangerous. Yeah. Good Choice. But you didn't use them so. That's good. That's an interesting I i. think you know if there's a theme emerging the versatility and ultimately the futility or understanding the ultimate sacrifice that they. Will have to. Pay. But yeah. You're talking about even just like kind of a sartorial versatility. Do you look good in pinstripes? A you're hired. Can you rip out of guys heart and showed them before he dies, but I do I, do love at the end or close to the end. I think thunder is the one that.

Light. This sort of the the ant from Harry Potter, Rook assaults or expand exploded images blows up because he's so so overwhelmed with grief.

Tunes like. But yeah, it was butch and I can't remember the other one I'm going to look for now. Yeah. But Yeah, little. Yippy dogs that would. Come on come on.

"mt" Discussed on Mt. Rushmore Podcast
"The Mount Rushmore podcast. My Name is Jeff I'm joined by my good. Friends, Richard. And Michael. Out. Richard Michael Debate, they deliberate. They dance they twirl. They twist they shine. God this time around. Discussing the Mount Rushmore of men from the Dutch or Hyun Cheer, which means not the real bad guy. But the stowed, Ian. That cleans up for him or does dirty work. WHO CHOSE IT? This was my topic. And I chose us because the other night Millan I were watching a a not very good movie. It wasn't bad. It was just not very good. We're watching karate kid park three. And the main bad guy of the movie is not crease. You know the leader of Cobra Kai. It's like his Vietnam War Buddy and this guy is the most classic like late eighty s evil. Bad Guy. You can think of, he's like big and rich and his into dumping toxic waste and has a long black ponytail is smoking a huge cigar and he's just kind of like a real big. But then. He's got these real. He's has like these two henchmen just like terrible. They're like bad henchmen there. Just Kinda. Scummy. Underlings and I. Immediately. Thought Oh God I think of a million. Better, henchman in these two. Just dip shits. They're just like shits, and that's where it's so disappointing. I mean he was disappointing as a bad guy in the movie like overall was disappointing. But like I thought Oh God. What about good. What about a good henchman? What about someone really comes in steps up and it's just like you know what? This is who I want on my team. Yeah. Yeah. You feel like sometimes you get a hint, he's a, he's a dollar store version of the bad guy. And in a a Bijon film, the bad guy usually isn't that dimensional to begin with. So here's I. Think. I think if if you've gotten to the point where you're like a bad guy who needs a henchman, your effectively like the CEO of a company where you personally don't do a whole lot, you have a lot like big ideas and you need like people to just kind of execute your big ideas like you know. Go, kill somebody or like go do this and that. But. I got. I got bigger things to do and a good henchman when you're you know. We are bad guy that really really sets you apart. Well I would love to discuss as we go along the varietals that. Are Available there in for henchman, some seemed to be a kind of Bagai in in the making Some seem to be this kind of your. Fun House Weirdo version of the bad guy or or. Some kind of the Big Big Dumb Idiots, the jet Li fights in the first reel of the film. On his way to the bad guy So. Definitely are like the sub boss before you get to the main boss in summer. Yes. Like. Guys out there. Just doing things I I in it, some of them. Turning, turning, turning good you know and then we see them re themselves So Michael Kit Richard Starts, what are you? All Right? Yeah. So This going with this topic I thought there was no way. I couldn't have a James Bond. Had To. And I don't know if he's the best in terms of quality of his work. But he is just about the only James Bond instrument to make appearances in more than one movie. High. Talking, of course, about jaws awesome tile. First appeared in the nineteen excuse me. First. Appeared in the nineteen seventy, seven film despite let me. As what a Stromberg's instrument? And makes a reappearance in moon raker be silliest of all giant James Bond. Yes. Which is why I love it so much. as the main henchman for Hugo drax. And he is one of the henchmen who as you just alluded to does have his redemption Ark. In Moon raker and winds up. Turning the tables on drax working with with James Bond to defeat him. Getting. Hot. French, girlfriend along the way. So I know jaws to me partially because. He was from Fresno and growing up near Fresno. Anytime, anyone who is an actor or someone famous celebrity that was from the area. You there was like news stories anytime. One of his movies appeared like like, Premiere? It was like a big deal. So they have the guy who played jaws. From James, bond movies be from Fresno with like Ab deal. Hey, that's cool. Yeah. But Even, even beyond that I just love. I love the look of Jaws. They had to go to through several layers, levels of press to be able to get his metallic hog-like grinding teeth. Right. And it's just such a and I. Love the idea that he's essentially indestructible. Unlike a lot of other. James, bond henchmen who? There's kind of a pattern where bond struggles to defeat him. Out a way to the last minute. With jaws, it's more that just he keeps defeating him and he keeps coming back because he is basically Wiley Coyote. Endless. Fight who loved me Josh survives them quoting from Wikipedia here. Josh Josh survives in addition structures collapsed on top of him, being hit by van being thrown by. Moving train sitting in the passenger seat of a car, which veers off a cliff in Sardinia lands in a hut below a battle under water with shark and the destruction, of Stromberg's lair. That's just in the first movie. There's just there's questions about stuff that happens to open the second movie. And every time. If you remember like he would, he would parachute out in his parachute wouldn't work and he'd crossed through a circus tent land, other trapezes, August, bringing off, and whenever he would land. He would just kind of dust off, straighten up his tie, get up and just move out of there. I, mean, that's a great. That's a great investment in a henchman. Like you know, some henchmen are a dime a dozen they come in and you get killed and like okay. Well, I spent all this money on the on boarding process of getting him through HR and you know he's hired and he's going to on healthcare. But like when you like invest in a guy that's indestructible, that's a long term investment that really pays off timing again, that's. In. The fact that Hugo drax in moon raker basically hires. Hires jaws as a free agent after after Stromberg's death..
"mt" Discussed on Mt. Rushmore Podcast
"Jeff and I'm joined virtually via zoom as usual on a good friends Richard. Hello and Michael Howdy. Richard and Michael liked to discuss the most ubiquitous aspect of many topics. This week's topic was chosen by Michael. And tell what it is Michael. It's the Mount Rushmore of dragons. Wow and in parentheses fictional. 'cause I didn't I didn't want to get into like the Komodo dragon because you're just a big lizard. What about the band imagine dragons? Yeah I would like to see you defend that I would have no defensive whatsoever and I I think I chose this because we've been You know with our near near three year old. Now we've been watching a sleeping beauty almost like on repeat and at some point Melissa since the evil queen turns into a giant fire breathing dragon and so just this image of a dragon. Is You know. Pardon the PUN seared into my head and I thought Oh what other fun dragons can we talk about but also I thought I just don't want to talk about being sick and I don't Wanna about like being overturned our last two two episodes so I thought a little bit of a fantasy would have helped us in our reality. Okay I WANNA question. Is it really fantasy because I would say more? So than I'd say like center or a seizure or even a demon feel Good Dragon. Feels like yeah? We might have had those it's important. Do I like the idea of you? Know of someone finding like the bones of like horse in a man that were crushed at the same time and then they just started putting them back together. I think it looks like that. And maybe they did the same thing with like a dragon disorder that fell on the pterodactyl or something. Just smooshed together. Yeah it had wings. Son Has a book that you can just kind of flip down the pages and make all these different creatures like like a Rhinoceros and platypus and Mike a Dung Beetle. And it's like there right plenty leedle changes and around. I love the idea. Of like these these these wackos just doing that. It's the body of a snake in the head of a lion and at Yeah Scorpion legs. Sure do I get in the Royal Hall of of Science Now? Alright manfreddy before before we get to one thing. I do like about dragons. Is that like every culture has some sort of like either dragon math or some sort of this idea of this. Great kind of serpentine other beasts unknown and. I think that's I think that's pretty interesting. How that has affected whether it's fantasy literature or GIS cultural kind of dragon type stuff and You know it's all they're all fictional dragons until we delve down to deep and discover the one that really is underneath there that we all know is there but okay okay man. Freddie enter the everything else Michael or can we start. Oh no please please call my first choice is we'll put it this way. We all remember Bing Bong from inside out. Oh yeah everyone's favourite imaginary friend. Well it should be. Everyone's second favorite imaginary friend because their first favorite imaginary friend for probably puff the Magic Dragon. Now you go home song written by Peter Yarrow of Peter Paul and Mary and his Room mate at Cornell University Leonard Lipton. Who came up with the Has had this poem. It had to get out of his head. He typed up on the computer or not compete on a typewriter And then years later Peter. Yarrow took the Poem and put music to it and got a hold of them out of the blue saying. Hey we're going to release the song that has your basically your poem to music. I'm GonNa give you half the songwriting credit. So he gets you know. Probably millions of dollars you pay made millions of dollars a year from years from the song. Wow and it's so you know. I think most people remember the song about Little Jackie paper. What a lousy last-named order. He didn't no wonder he needed a fiction. Fictional place that imaginary place to go. He probably got teased all the time. Because freaking apor but a little boy who has an imaginary friend called puff the Magic Dragon and they live they were they had ventures in. This place called Honolulu this island and over time. Jackie paper grows up and eventually starts to lose interest in puff the Magic Dragon and eventually leaves him and for a song that is so beloved. It's kind of a dark fucking song. I mean it really is about like puff the magic dragon being forgotten and sort of ceasing to exist because the kid who invented a doesn't remember him anymore. It's pretty heavy. I pretty heavy I. It's pretty heavy for a song that I used to sing in kindergarten music class and I remember there is a there was a TV special. That was puff the Magic Dragon. It's all kinds of messed up like the kid was actually. Jackie draper the Tommy from the from from the WHO's Tommy thing where he could speak because of some psychological trauma. The only way that he could communicate was through this jack making paper dolls of himself called. Jackie paper and interacting with pop. And it's just weird But you know I think it's an I think like you said dragons are kind of stride this lying between real and imaginary and they've I would imagine it having an imaginary dragon would be something that a lot of kids probably had growing up so I think this is a pretty representative example of of dragons as feeling so real even though they're not actually real especially to a little kid. Yeah you feel like that So I was introduced to some other fictional kind of token dragons in the seventies but might be the real sixties drag. It seems like he's definitely the other side of the Harry. Cheapened cats in the cradle story. But he is a in this case he's kind of a cautionary tale of never never grow so old that you don't have a little bit of whimsy in your heart and never let these childhood friends be they fire-breathing reptilian monsters are not go totally away and lose all your imagination. But I I WANNA thank Barbara House and Stacey Mariette Who are facebook supporters of the Mount? Rushmore podcast to both said puff the magic and then both Stacey added both from the original and most recent what was the most recent. I didn't realize there was a most recent drake did a version of yes I could see. Snoop dogg maybe snoop would would would take the wrong message. From puff imagine I would also like to commend Lee Sandberg. Who did didn't really answer anything. But said not puff so cool could ruin it for you Lee. Yeah Okay Winfield. What's your first one but my first choice. And you just alluded to it in your what you said. Jeff was a smug smile office on your list. The name that that is so Often difficult to say. I'm never sure if I'm saying it right. Is it smog? As it smiled is a I it's one of those names that I get angry at like Token literary people like experts who. I'm sure we'll chide any way you say it. And they will. It will always be wrong. Bear listened to this episode. He's going to write us an angry letter. I think the true historians would say it's not pronounced smile. It's pronounced Adolf Hitler because what it was all about He's kind of like the fantasy dragon of record. You'd say If you don't know the story of the Hobbit There is a nine hour. Peter Jackson version. That is really just kind of difficult. Watch it's a slog it is. It is so long but the best part about it is definitely better. Cumberbatch coming in as like this As the dragon when they finally get to The lonely mountain but the stories of the these thirteen dwarves along with Gandalf. The wizard who Who recruits a hobbit the titular hobbit Bilbo baggins to be the burglar to help break into the city Arab or in the Lonely Mountain where this giant dragon? Smile has Basically stolen all of their gold and has been sitting on this giant hoard of gold and jewels and diamonds and Yada Yada Yada and they have to Kinda steal a back and their encounters with him are great because he's He's like he's not just like a beast he's like he's very intelligent and cruel and as well as being a powerful fire beating breathing dragon the size of you know two jumbo jets and I think that just the I do enjoy that with like fantasy novels especially this one. That dragons aren't just animals that they have like another sort of intelligence their of their a creature that is wholly different from a horse so to speak and I think you kind of see elements of that in other fantasy books TV series and movies where these dragons like Harry Potter. Where they're just kind of like these. These big animals and I think it loses something from a character like being like a fully realized character with like motivation so as as sentient as he has powerful. Somebody who has I think of dragons as depending on your folklore Ancient they've can live for thousands of years and he's accumulated as much intelligence and perhaps as much evil and as much ego as one could attain throughout those years to. That's yeah yeah image of him too as like this scrooge mcduck like swimming lazily lounging on You know a powerful a gold is just. It's just delicious. Explain what he's going to do with the gold he just has it right. Yeah isn't it all millionaires and billionaires? What do you basically basically? He's like Jeff bezos. Or something like that. Any wants more gold to have it but he's happy sleep on it. That is an interesting aspect I think of of fiction and fable and fantasy is that really. It's a lens through which to examine human behavior and the dragon in that case having the the behavior of greed more more nefarious so we did have a mention of smog in here in our crowdsource. I won't do this with every darn thing you mentioned but now I'm struggling to find it and note to Jeff. Was Editing this. Oh Yeah Arnaud. Stemmer DID MENTION SMOG. And he was. I think one of the few so thanks Arnold Michael it's your turn to pick your second dragon. My Second Dragon is Kit or at the three headed space dragon. A giant bat wings and chief Nemesis of Godzilla in Godzilla family. A Phillips what a good choice. I was almost made my list I was. I have a at five that I had thought of really strongly and this was between. There's another one for my fourth. So great choice I I like him. Because he's.

That's our Game C. H. e. e. such a just a moment of capturing a pathetic. Djing writer and all he does is right old McDonalds or is just take a jingle and to add a different layer to the same song. It's the same. You know something that is so familiar and I think that's what jingles happened. Get in to get into these notes. Familiarity and they become almost nursery rhymes. Kars for kids is certainly a nursery rhyme. All these different things are just like these things. It's just familiarity. You're breathing familiar. You know there's another moment after. She's kicked him out of the bar and being like. Oh you're this hack and this guy's just like Oh. That reminds me. I need to get a tuna for my car is like where you're gonNA go too far. They located fourteen fourteen burlingame. But like I don't know just that moment of just like it's it was very true and I think that's all you're trying. Yeah I love it trying to find some little aspect of truth in what jingle as in all it is trying to get in your head and remember certain thing. I'll say one of the fun things that happened out on. The the thing was James Walker said does the Mr Plow Jingle Count in Stir A. Yeah just because it's just so simplistic okay Freddie senior PLO knows lamented as soon barrage. Of course yeah. That would have been a great choice. They wish around. Yeah so I mentioned The us the I'm loving it song. That became a jingle. Yeah I also mentioned there. Several jingles that became popular songs. One of them Not My choice but one of them. Lots crear one one. David Naughton. Oh Yeah. I'm a pepper so cool. This one I think is probably the biggest hit jingle ever. It's like to buy the world like the world to sing. Okay cool the Coca Cola Song Cool So iconic that it was the last thing that you heard and Manda Finale of Madman. Yeah when it's implied the Don draper in his yoga retreats in a moment of serenity comes up with the idea for this and his back in the game baby yeah it was filmed in nineteen seventy one cost two hundred and fifty thousand dollars only smoke. Which was the most expensive commercial ever at the time? Well and the South African government actually wanted them to make a Version without the black singers. Because if you remember it was very multicultural Benton. Add before before there's been and coca-cola told him to get bent and actually decided to divest themselves from South Africa after Valley smokes so the did act- actually put their money where their mouth is in terms of The message was so popular that they wound up People were calling radio stations and saying I want to hear full version about so.

Okay there's nothing on their nineteen seventy-two then the new seekers have version of it. Version is version. You know which went to number one in the UK and number two number seven in the US. Wow One of the biggest hits of the year. Wow just in an iconic song I thought you're going to bring up this song which started as a local bank Commercial Bank. Yacoubian WE HAVE US. Yeah we down frazzled. Crocker banks do so we had this really. Yeah absolutely and it was an old kind of Venerable Bank trying to reach out to this new hippie market for these these young kids.

"George to one of those kids really don't know how to ask your in Montrose. In what a we there was like. It's a toy store there and we haven't been into like a total ever other than like walking section. Yeah Yeah and it was wild just to go into like pretty expensive story. It was like you're walking around. You're like our Lincoln logs really supposed to be that much for that. No residue from Wood chipper and the Painting Bread Nicole Felix walking around looking. You just toys after I'll after I love toys and him picking up literally Lincoln Log and saying I want this. Sometimes I wonder what next time can I have this wild like? Oh yeah this is just like a kid walking around a toy store and so like but I had the exact same memory of their sections of Toys R. US. You know as a boy I just never would walk you. There's a huge Barbie. Yeah portion was just be like okay. I can avoid that right. Asking the teenage mutant. Ninja turtles is going to be great right Quick fact but the jingles credible and quick the slogan that. I don't WanNa grow up on Toys R. Us Kid was partially written by James. Patterson went on to be the the true crime novelist crime novelist. Wow Yeah yes. He was working as an ad writer at the time. That helps come up with well. That's pretty interesting. There's your fun fact for the week. I worked on a GIG from hell with a gentleman who thought he was a big celebrity. Such as Tom Hanks hit he happened to be Jim. Hanks who was the voice of Geoffrey the Giraffe for awhile whose toys R. US Mascot and Tom Hanks I can guarantee you a the man who has won two Oscars beloved by millions. Chair on the on Mount Rushmore. Beloved American people has never been a bigger Dick than Jim and has never thought much of himself. He'll acts like he's Tom. Hanks Jim fucking hangs because Thomson. Was there anything specific or is it just general General douchebag bag. We do you know who I am. Actually come out. Yeah yeah realize you're Tom. Hanks brothers where you are cheese. You wouldn't have this Gig if it wasn't for. We just lost listener better valuable listener. Jim Hanks on the job or not. Probably Not Tom. Either or toys R. US people because there'll arc. Would you got Winfield My next choice is a regional. One that you kind of mentioned it's the CAL Worthington. Oh yeah also known as Pussy Cow. That's a Ding Ding Ding. Because people definitely mentioned cal on here so For Howard my chiropractor go see cow. We'll be burned into my brain forever. If you want a car truck go see cal for you. Want to save a buck. Go see cow. If you need a better car over and over and over go see cal go see. Cal goes account and as a kid everyone pussy cat pussy cal cal. Worthington was a local car. Dealer this guy in a big cowboy hat that started off every commercial wrestling with some sort of exotic animals he was like the Marlin Perkins local. Tv Yeah Yeah and it would always say it's cow Worthington and his dog spot. In for like two seconds you'd see him getting mauled by a tiger warlike elephant or being in a in a car in the front seat being attacked and I found this amazing like three minute version of the CAL Worthington Song which is like different lyrics. They'd never heard any model any. Make go see cal give your pocketbook pocketbook a break go see county and just like all these different versions that you could see like someone wrote like a three minute song and you could just out any part any verse of it thrown in there for thirty seconds Arrigo. Do you ever speak with a local advertising producer at the cable station. Where worked and he said. All of the business owners who came in especially auto dealers. WanNa you convinced that you when you went to this auto dealer you are going to speak with a mentally ill person but you're going to get you know. Yeah we're all on the commercials that was always some guy with a pig. And he's wearing a barrel and he's got a cowboy hat and he's standing on or you stay on top of water tower or something like that or is wearing a plaid suit and then you can take advantage of. Oh yeah he's a rube he's a rube. And then love that you show up and the guys wearing an Armani suit is back in the back office. He's letting all his his guys do all his work. He's a savvy savvy a business owner but they want you to think that disguise walking picked the parking lot or something like that. That's what's great about like his commercials other than the Jingle. Was that immediately. After the jingle you just go into the pitch and the pitches like him standing in front and just walking down this aisle of cars and he's just like listing off like a model seven hundred ninety five dollars. Nineteen seventy eight Ford Festival. And it's it's so funny and the commercials you know back in the seventies were so cheap. He's got a ship them in this one. Oh sure. If there's like a mega cut that has like everything. And he's like getting pulled by an ostrich and row after row after old cars and trucks. Sorry okay now. That's that's him. It's it's it's so just ingrained as part of my childhood toys. R. Commercials or whatever you know the Kars for kids commercial something. That's so new. Relatively new but like toys R. US. Go See cal is just like right there in my head. Yeah there's another one that didn't make my my list which is probably not in yours. Did a Toyota of orange. No but it was. The same sort of thing is like a used car. Dealerships are the ones that need it. And it's like you won't get a lemon go to live from Toyota of orange that one. They overly pronunciation Toyota. You ever listen to it. It's always Toyota of orange interests. Oh I don't know if it's something from the seventy s where they didn't quite know how to say Japanese words rotate. What was going on whatever it is about like used car dealership commercials. They are just sponges for jingles. Yes both my choices so far have been about giveaway crappy concerts right sue buying or selling them. Yeah I want to thank some of the people from my region of the Midwest who who chimed in with this guy who. When I was a kid I thought he was an international celebrity because he was on TV every break between three stooges and that was This guy called boots Williams and let me see Usually starts with the song that we all know as the stripper. That up out your boots colonel. Billy was the cash strays and I remember that. This colonel billy who was had a little bit of a Colonel Sanders kind of mutton chops. And you just had a little bit of an antebellum kind of charm right to him. He would do commercials and he would be joined. Hey it's colonel billy here and then a couple of months later be Colonel Billy and brother Bob and then after swale Colonel Blink phased out then you signed brother Bob here and brother Bob Bob. This is junior and we're here to talk about the dealing it and then go away and then junior it'd be the guy like pals going on. Varney would show and so I'm going yeah for regional ones. I should mention one of my favorite ones not my region but I was introduced to the commercial a few years ago. Chicago's Mulino wink. Oh never heard of this. Oh it's incredible. Please go find the moon commercial. It's I I won't spoil it for you. It's fantastic okay. Okay Okay Richard Manfreddy. What's your second all right so you mentioned the car. Dealerships are chockablock full of creating goals. Yeah so McDonald's and I actually had a hard time trying to figure out which McDonalds Jingle I should choose for. It's a good time for the great taste up. Mcdonald's that's one that's so funny. Yeah that's the one. That's the first thing I learned how to play on piano when I was six. Or Seven. It could have been the big. Mac Song that only jingle that actually just the whole thing is just spelling out what. The Food Suffers. Ingredients are to be patties. Okay for whatever reason in my head I was for a second. I was thinking of the Mac tonight. Gone back a little bit different but yeah but instead I went with Doo. Doo Doo Doo. Doo. I'm love certainly be most long running of McDonald's jingles and it's got an interesting backstory to the false. There's an actual full song that was leaked by Justin Timberlake as a single. I use leak in quotation marks. Because I'm pretty sure like back. Remember all like that would happen. Like songs will get leaked over the Internet. Yeah Oh no so upset about this. I guess we'll have to release. It is yeah. It's like come on guys. He leaked it yourself okay but they actually took the jingle before it came out as Jingle And made a single out of it the Justin timberlake released as a single really. Is this earlier like right. After he was in the group left the this was in between his first and second album. Okay so it was right before. Sexy back came out. Wow so it's like right before. He became Justin. Yeah motherfucker Timberlake okay. But it's a full-on Justin Timberlake Song. And it's got a female singer doing the duty to do to you. Know beyond like very urbanized beat This certainly was the first. Mcdonald's commercial really I think targeted urban sound And IT'S INTERESTING. There's one Add Wizard Ab AD executive kind of store in Who point out. This is a rare example of a reverse engineering of a of a commercial jingle where they actually released it as a popular song I And then you come use use that to get into the Public Zeitgeist and then released the Wa after that playing samples and I'll get to one later Of The opposite happen. Yeah but this is where something was. The first to Jingle Jingle became popular. Wow this is the opposite. This is when they actually released the full length song. I I think I might queue up that song. I'm imagining I know. If I probably don't know song was called I'm just it's called I'm Lovin it It did not chart in the United States but it made its way to number fifteen in Ireland. Is that right? Yeah because the Irish only release about twenty songs a week at any one time so I.

No because the magic the magic the magic number in the soul hip hop community was born. Three may stubborn me. And that's the magic number else. Yeah what does that mean. Exactly Growing up as a kid watching SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK'S ON YOUR LOCAL ABC affiliate. I did not realize this was actually the first song that was written and created for the schoolhouse rock franchise was it. Yeah so so the person who came up with the Perseus saying in rootless guy named Bob Dorough not Yahoo Dot like last year. I think or something like that. Not Bob derosa former guest show Baabda ro And he had been a jazz musician. Oh check sheldon died. Sorry Yeah and and he had was had been recording jazz albums but he started out kidding a job in advertising because it paid better than jazz but but there's an advertising guy who got basically but the heroine's even just as you know the the scat advertising numbers. So there's a guy named David McCall who also worked in advertising and basically he said. Hey my son can't memorize their timetables yet but they sing along with all these pop songs. So maybe you could write a song. They were to help them learn their multiplication tables. And he's a don't write it down to children may get like a cool song so he came up with three is the magic number and in the song lifts off long talking about being a magic number because there's three in the family at least. This is a nuclear family. I suppose your traditional family triangle having three sides enlist the multiples of threes. So three six nine. So it's basically a way for kids to be able to memorize their multiplication tables of three so He loved the song wound up getting his is art director to dismantle nation to it they sent it off to Michael Eisner. Who you may have heard of at the time was the head of daytime programming at ABC and Chuck Jones owns who was also very much involved at ABC's daytime programming at the time and They said they love it. Why don't we do a whole series of these so have schoolhouse rock's because of three is the magic number? That's pretty cool. So that's not only a great catchy song with a Pretty Fun Fund cover by blind melon on schoolhouse. Rock's covers album that came out in the nineties. But also all the other schoolhouse rock rock songs that you love. Yeah Oh this gratitude. That's pretty red. How we watched Reality Bites recently and there's an opening scene scene where they're all all these Gen xers all out of school singing rocks songs and I remember thinking man is puts me off to this movie. We just. They think they're so cool. Janine Garoppolo all of them but that's a good choice has been holed up by the way you know Sh- She should have gone with Michael the entire time. Yeah the best actor He's the one that was nice to her and he's nice and stable and maybe that's just just a forty one year old person's perspective looking back but Hawk was spouses. Yeah she was like yeah. I don't think she really cared for either very much. Yeah the right choice choose either. Yeah which I think is almost seems like broadcast. News had the same dilemma for our female protagonist which are the guys in each each of them were kind of do she said I'm sorry right to the day lasalle versus that's okay? That was also obviously they also planted the seed in their heads as well also winfield. What's your first? My first number is the number number zero oh not Zilch Nada Zip Nada. Nothing Love An. Oh oh I thought this was. I thought zero is a very interesting number. It's also the Billy Corgan number when you think of cool guys wearing zero being bald and a rock and roll guy. There's nothing cooler than in one thousand nine hundred five when Billy Corgan had a bald head and the words zero written across his chest declaring himself. I'm nothing that is pure rock and roll but zero is just always an interesting Number represents nothing which is a sometimes hard to define as a state. I was reading a little bit about how. Oh you know. No one had zero defined for the longest time it wasn't until recently and it was like zero and the idea of nothing thing in zero has been around for hundreds of years of thousands of years before like current culture. Sure read a little bit about the Greeks. How they didn't didn't have zero for a long time? But I think most of the revolved around the idea of it was more philosophical of how can nothing be something something and that's like activities. Stop until much like how do you not have something that represents. Now how many of those do you have if you don't have any. What are you saying response when I literally have one but less than that one one takeaway one and then you're just yeah? Yeah you're in a little loop yeah there you are. I also think zero looks pretty cool as a number on a uniform like a baseball or it's a real tough guy moved to declare yourself not number one but number zero right or even more career the double double zero. Yeah how much of a bad ass you have to be to say. I am zero zero. Just go for three years of that point. Yeah why not four zero. When's this guy is just going to be so confident that they have six Zeros on their Jersey and he was like can't top six zero zero? Is that the name of the kid in Grand Budapest hotel. I think the style or something you. Yeah you're thinking of the actor zero Mostel but the actual care but the character name was was named zero zero zero also. The name of the dog in ninety four. Christmas zero is out there as this. It's nothing but it means a lot part of the whole binary numbers Zeros and ones and as us a letter to start anything for your for the listeners across asked upon that when we say beating your dad go back throughout the entire podcast whenever we've said zero. We know whenever says Z.. Do Z. Z.. Is it okay. I don't know what they call zero. Not Not Yeah. Probably when when they when they play noughts and crosses instead of TIC TAC toe nonleague crosses come. Come on. Come on you anti zero prevalent. They're well they're maths or different than ours. See less than zero. Was the East Ace. Jason Allison Jay Z. You're mixing I don't even know what your mix. Jj Ernie those those preppy Yuppie authors right. And I think I let it off. Talking about zero was how many different synonyms there are for zero to represent nothingness nothingness except for like. You can't do that with one. Maybe but that's different language but zero has has a lot of things Zip Nada. Yeah not as but like I don't know I just think it's unique in that way. Okay Ricardo your second choice. Who Doesn't love Pie Right Delicious Bloodier Putin likes it? Okay I always write down notes. Yeah picks three point one four. We'll start getting into it. That's all I got. That's all I got to So Pie which is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter And the main reason I bring this up because there are people who there are competitions for people to memorise Pi. Yeah to however many numbers can memorize it to in some. The people like there is a the previous world record Pat Been Six sixty seven thousand eight hundred ninety places by Chow number of China. Oh is that when your numbers which was since surpassed by reserve meany of India who we sided seventy thousand decimal places? I did do an AH I gotta say if any of you who are in the competitive. Pi Memorization Movement are listening. Listen Yeah Stop It. Stop Stop It. Obviously you have a talent for being able to memorize random numbers things things. You're memorization is off the charts. Yeah do you realize what good you could be doing to the earth somehow. I'm not sure how but there has to be a better use of your skills than just memorizing random. A random string of numbers. The thing is that like can you say well. What's the twelve thousand three three hundred and twenty second letter number in digital pie? Can they go in. And we think one four four or yeah they have to count it all out. I think 'cause I don't think it's any. I think the way that you memorize that is probably you. Break it down to series of strings and then you memorize those strings so you remember remember the first in the second ten so on and so on I I imagine there is a mathematical formula or number number something that is so powerful and so important that it almost merits that kind of dough. dotage that right but the it is I mean. I think that it's it is a very important mathematical number us. Pipe cure cancer. Solved the the distance from you do use it to you using straw astronomy and stuff like that astrophysics things like that You know I love it that it's it's how biggest is how. How big is Pie? No one knows for sure. It's a mystery. It's like stone in fifth. There are like supercomputers that are just crunching these numbers for forever and they're like up to the trillionth digit of Pi. And there's just some guy that's like I'm I'm at sixty seven thousand memorizing like the computers in the future. That are even less impressed with us. We'll come across these record books and be like the he's an. He's an athlete like marathon runner right by a car and drive twenty six miles but he also like the fact my bros.. The Babylonians Yeah. They thought three and one eight. Yeah that's good enough close enough. That's as close as we're GONNA get to buy and that's fine because you know what probably yes really I mean. Do you really need to get exact. Malaria worry about Mongol hordes at our door a three point four eight. That's good we're good okay winfield. What's that number that you need when you just need sixty to go one more more? Oh eleven eleven most blokes here. We're all on ten all the way up all the way up all the way up. Where can you go from there nowhere really? Why don't you just make ten one louder? Extra brilliant the number eleven and cannot be uncoupled from this moment in a move believes called Tufnell's law. It's just the number eleven and not think of being one louder than ten on the movie. Yeah this is spinal tap. That's great choice just failure of logic when it's pointed out and he's just he's McEwen gums smoking a cigarette and then Mardi debris is sitting there like nodding very seriously like he's really taking this all in the plays like a beautiful piano Tude and it's called Lick my love pump. uh-huh Mina the saddest key. I it's hard for me the reference on the show. This is spinal tap. That comes up the coast. I think it is probably one of the most important movies in all of our lives medically and I felt it was right to kick off the year. Also also referencing this Google but eleven is just one of those that it's turned into something in real life where I think there are some Marshall amps. That's that make their amps. Go to eleven. I'm sure they did. What Marty Debakey did they just made it eleven slightly ten slightly Latte or whatever mates eleven? They just dumped everything else. But I I dislike the idea of a number that is just so simple and embedded in society as just as that it does Surmise the one of manship been male the testosterone driven car crock. You know he does have a lot of the stoop pity of toxic masculinity. Yeah and it's power dramatic. She's always good for a number. Yeah Yeah like me a good pal and trump number..

"Herself or himself in films and Richard is up all right so my next choice and we talked about Adam Sandler very briefly last week's episode and I have you've a love hate relationship with Adam Sandler okay ninety percent of his movies. I really don't like the ten percent that hit. They really hit punchdrunk. No okay are happy Gilmore. Okay and Bob Barker getting into a fistfight. Oh that's fun with Happy Gilmore a prime example of care of a a beloved. You know celebrity. Someone who has been and in our homes has powered us through all of our sick days when we were kids. Yeah just you know beloved person who only wants us to make sure we're staying being in new during our pets May. Bob Should've been spayed or neutered. Turns out anyway and just an example of taking that lovable personality warm and just take totally turning it on its head turning him into this ultracompetitive jerk who gets. It's mad because happy Gilmore is not playing well and screwing up their pro-am And the whole thing goes out of spirals out of control and they wind up with a fistfight on the golf course. Yeah the two things I love about. This is one. Bob Barker apparently did his own stunts really for this even though he was like seventy five years old at the time because he was like a karate guy. Oh Pretty Cool Roddy yeah And the other thing is that he he would only do the role if if they could ensure that he won the fight. That's bat shit crazy. That's like Jason Stadium in the rock type stuff where they have people blonde set to count. How many times they get punched so that they can punch the other person? Yeah one more time. But it's Bob fucking Barker. That's wild to me. Who are the guys that stuck on? You fairly brothers fairly brothers if the fairly brothers. We're making happy Gilmore. There is no way that Bob Barker wins that fight. Like he's just beaten down like they need to they need to subvert it too when he comes out is it bad ass and then subverted again until it's taken too far right. I love the idea Bob Barker. Don't come in one though because that goes into the idea of like the ego and and making yourself something that you are non which is I mean. Maybe he's into Kara Tae. But you know into at least wears high corrupting I don't know Yeah I I just I I love that idea I love of of course talking about iconic lines from the movie. There's there's no more iconic line from happy Gilmore than the price is wrong bitch. Yeah And again I think it's just one of those things when you see a celebrity play themselves elves in film very often. They're not there they can either play a hyper realist. Version of themselves or they can play themselves as completely completely opposite of their of their whatever their public personas and this is an example of obviously the latter. This seemed like an opportunity to break free of the identity. You've been pegged with so. I think that was something that extra did a lot. I know that. TV Right. Let let that person auto sorry. Are you getting paid by extra little bit extra extra sugar. Free Okay A winfield Julia Roberts as Julia Roberts Oh in ocean swells the shit out of me did it really yeah Because why I think because she was pregnant. I think that the Catherine's at our role Catherine Zeta Role Catherine Zeta Jones. Roll like a Sushi restaurant. I'll have the Sukey on venture I think. The Catherine Zeta Jones role was probably her role or something before she was pregnant. I don't know for sure because it's eleven wasn't he i. So Yeah Julia Roberts yes wasn't Ocean's eleven yes yes. She's the main love interest of Danny Ocean. I'm guessing by the time they got to Ocean's twelve. Oh they probably rewrote the script when they discovered the couldn't do his pregnant okay. She was pregnant with twins at the time and so she comes in to you know. There's this harebrained scheme about stealing. Like the first stock certificate ever exchange. Because they're trying to pay back all the money they stole from Joe Montana I fill and whatever you know. It's a harebrained scheme. It's a harebrained film and don't think about it. Too involving like a Holographic Faberge egg and you know it's it's nonsense that movies always do with a sequel as they take it overseas. Take it to Europe First films always set New York or L. A. or whatever and then like all right. We got the budget for the second film. Let's increase it by thirty million dollars in. Let's go for vacation film in Europe. Yeah so this. Entire plot that they get into Julie Lewd characters her character from the first movies tests and then in the second film they have to rope test back into it because they need her to pose. As as Julia Roberts S. Julia Roberts because she looks close enough to Julia Roberts to steal this egg get close to whatever it. Of course they bring her in dress her up. She's supposedly pregnant even though she's actually pregnant and she's about to steal this thing. And of course Bruce Willis walks in and Bruce Willis knows Julia Roberts because celebrities all we know each other and then he realizes licensed or this is who it is but I loved it they. I love the idea of playing somebody playing themselves. They're actually themselves and I thought it was just a a cute. Although you know kind of you know we're talking about Faberge eggs but it's kind of like an Easter Egg or like like a Russian doll sort of thing. Who who are you when you're acting? Yeah having to act as someone acting as you. Yeah but this version of you. Yeah the one thing that kind of peeved me is which of the films started with them. Ocean's eleven starts with our our cast is kind of hustling these. TV actors who are playing themselves for Grace Yeah overgrazed when I remember yeah and so I remember thinking Oh cool. That's how they're going to make us forget the fact that these guys are all these huge actors by their huge huge film actress by having them in a world where some TV actors are real TV actors. They're really themselves. But Brad Pitt is just a dude right right so for me. That helped me kind of reduced the star power. Just get into. These guys scares so by the time it gets to Julia. Roberts playing herself. I think well fuck you just. What really does that mean? There's a Brad Pitt in the bread in. Yeah Yeah these people just all happen to look like these speed. That's that's I think that's one of the things that always Stroz we off. Whatever movie does something well? Yeah you're tearing down the wall that I didn't know that you put up in eleven. That's that's what peeved about it. The Oceans Dark University. Don't yeah yeah so cool. Go pull Manfredi wrap it up so my last one is John Malkovich John Mara. Oh is there also we're talking. You were talking a little bit about a Julia Roberts. Being kind of a Meta as Meta as a as a celebrity playing playing themselves can't get. I have John Malkovich as John Malkovich in being knocker. Richardson type out and have apple. Second try to correct tally. And you're just like no. Just let me try to mangle spelling Malkovich please. I got this apple notes. A fantastic movie You know a chance for John Malkovich to not only play himself. Play himself as John Kuzak inside of his head or John cusack character actor at least so we had to not only act as this hyper realistic version of himself. WHO's kind of an asshole? Yeah But also this weird puppeteer not your artsy mousy version of himself. The John Cusack is playing. Who is now inside of control again it is it is it is an actor's occurs dream to be like I have to climb inside myself and then at some point he climbs inside himself right playing himself as he enters his own body? And then as you know Malkovich of Al Qaeda and like that must be just like there are some actors that you you must imagine. It's him and and it's Daniel Day Lewis. Yeah that just enveloped these roles and you think that Oh my God this the role that was written for him he he must have just been so delighted for for and it's one of those that like this couldn't have been made without his okay like I'm sure he wrote trauma he wrote. He wrote it thinking well. I'm just going to write this. Can I talk them into it. Yeah I don't know what or did he do. Did Charlie Kaufman. No and being like I'm writing this movie. I wonder if Kaufman had ascended by then to being this kind of pet screenwriter in Hollywood and so people Blake John. Malkovich might have known him as Quirky Guy who was Kinda becoming an indie darling. But I could see the price of entry for any performer gallic garlic Christopher walken. If you say you got to play you gotTa play Christopher Walken. They have to know like I always think of like Markovic. I thought he thought of himself as a chameleon type of performer who can do any kind of role but clearly. He just wants to do he John Malkovich and then he knows who John Malkovich is and knows. Oh I'm that guy who has that could didn't you also do some. NFL stuff to where he was playing this overblown he was doing doing. This is big big bombastic. Kind of of you know he. He's kind of like the mook from Chicago. WHO DOES ALMOST SHAKESPEAREAN type of move or Tori? So so I look this up because I wanted to be accurate with what I said. Yeah it was written specifically John Malkovich in mind but without any sort of relationship between Charlie Kaufman and John Malkovich. It was just. He thought this is the person that has to be. This is who it's GonNa be fun to watch. Can I go through. All of. He's yeah the motions of it was just a fun fun person to see have to go through all of this and so he just Kinda wrote it hoping John Malkovich or would go along along with it. And apparently John Malkovich's I thought was. Why are you doing this? Why me yeah being Tom Cruise? That'll more tickets. Yeah Tom Cruise is a much bigger. Draw why John Malcolm John Malkovich. Because it's funnier that way. Yeah I know. I've told this story on the podcast but I'll reiterate it. There's the one scene where car drives past as John Malkovich in John Q.. X Characters are walking on the street and car drives passing. Here's some GonNa think fast Malkovich and like pegs him in the head with an empty beer can that apparently was not scripted. Apparently there is an extra thought. It'd be funny to do that during the shot. And so when using Malkovich get pissed off about it legitimately pissed off the real shit. That was that was not planned. Wow Wow so. There's a little bit more metaphor you. That's kind of amazing using so. That is the Mount Rushmore of persons in films playing herself or himself or themselves or they selves itself. Okay do that too. I don't want to disrespect to anybody's pronouns. Okay so it is myself opportunity right now to choose and I think we gotta go with Jay. Leno gotta do that podcast. It's been going for like two an episode. We should do. We should head over to Bob's big boy and see if he wants to come on. Let's go straight now. burnouts curry now striving right down through to Hunga and then stepping going to ridiculous nineteen fourteen Berg or something's got yeah any spare green alcohol. I need to put some fuel in my car. Okay and let's go with with wait. What do we do? Oh what did I pick one yet. Jalen Jay Leno okay. And we'll go with John Malkovich and it's kind kind of I've been reading a lot about him lately and I love him. So let's go with Bowie and see And and because of the love we're go for cream are sorry Keno Keno Keno. It's all of these Keno Kinnock Taylor number. Nine number. Nine has had such a within like three years cans on sticky. Anna's come and everyone one is like I'm so on board with. Oh yeah and it hasn't it's not waning. I can't wait for the new matrix to come out in a couple of years to bring it all to sit down or in the mountains. The new builds riot bill. and Ted's three. Yeah I'm not so worried about bill and Ted's three the matrix that but then John four coming back and back at you man okay. This has been the rush more of them theirselves and I as always am playing. Jeff I am Richard Manfreddy playing Richard Richard Man Pretty in the podcast Richard Nixon.

"Yeah all the pretense has it can be dropped. I can make fun of myself these. You know if if you're a good sport if you are if you're truly okay with yourself you are willing to make fun of yourself all the people that put up all the walls walls around like I can only be only have like you said earlier the best lines I can only be seen in the best light like this. Must be a great moment moment of him and he's just like Oh sure whatever beat myself and apparently the the real life Kanye reeves was his main concern when taking the role as he didn't want to make it all about him. Is He wound itself. He knows a romantic comedy. He knew about the two main characters and he didn't want to overshadow the God. Bless the little bit. Yeah Yeah Yeah Do. There is a series series of Ricky Gervais series that Had everyone. Who would you still doing that? Still and him are we. I don't know I think people don't like him anymore. Okay well every episode. Did I was a person that takes himself too seriously was centered around bringing in a extra extra extra brought in guest star. Sure every if if if this was expanded to TV. And I would grant that Netflix. Making movies doesn't count as TV. Extras was okay credible. Yeah Patrick Stewart one alone Winslett. I've seen everything yeah Daniel Radcliffe. Oh yes I've seen it all with Keanu. A new like literally his the opening scene as they go into this restaurant that's called maximal. It's one of those ones that were really deconstruct food. And he sits down at his first communist it is. Do you have any dishes to play with time. Like the concept of time. And that's like that's basically his character in a nutshell. Yeah he explains these cool. Who'll glasses he's got? My eyes are fine for a role. Look they don't even have Lindsey that sort of where you went up that the restaurant you end loosening to the screams of the animal the weeping. That's the type of work. This is a Morrissey concert concert. He basically is a walking more It's fantastic if you guys have seen a you guys know about if you haven't seen it yet highly recommend okay. I will My next choice is my next choice. Is David Bowie as David Bowie. In the two thousand when movies Ulanda speaking of Extras David Bowie from extras. They had a great cameo onto. This is a film. That was chockablock. Full of guest stars people people playing themselves. Because it was so very celebrity minded from Tyson Beckford to Lance Bass. Fabio Natalie Portman Paris Paris Hilton Winona Ryder and of course Garry shandling but Zulehner featured a great moment where zoo lander under and Hansel have to like. They are two male models and they're trying to prove who is the better male model and at some point they decided this can Only be decided by a walk off. Yeah which is some fictitious thing. That happens in some ultra hip Downtown warehouse and who is to be the judge David Bowie. David boy comes in and he's just glamorous and his axis judge for this ridiculous you know walking contest just stretching down the runway and doing various things but just David Bowie is just perfect. Perfect playing himself in a role that just that is a glamorization cameras. Asian of him that he doesn't need to do much just look amazing amongst all these other morons. It feels a piece of chuck. Norris I in dodgeball as the judge. Yeah very much so I wonder how much of that they just kinda like. Well it worked on Zealander. Let's just take this and run. I knew it again. But he's just so he's so good at being. I think that he has reached a certain level of like I can assume is I. I don't know he's just as who he is and to throw him in there. Such a myth about purses persona. Yeah Yeah you. It's so easy to play off without and it just it just works so perfectly amongst like him standing out amongst like the vapid celebrities that are at the various high fashion events is just is just perfect. He's in it but he's above it and I just rest in peace David Bowie. That was just such a nice role because usually when he is in movies he chooses interesting things to do he doesn't normally take take the piss on himself but like yeah yeah but like you know. He is playing interesting deep thoughtful roles and not yeah and Bowie. In the role of actor is who boy was as a musician position. He was always crafting a role. Anyhow million yeah he was a community he was always performing. This new version of whatever boy was going to be. It was going to be ziggy or the Thin White Duke insane or something.

"It's the Mount Rushmore podcast. My name is Jeff joined as for use by Richard and Michael Howdy. They're normally my good friends. But this time around I just called them Richard Michael. Something's brewing Now now I got nothing. What did we do? Oh No no Air Richard Michael. They like to deliberate them at. Rushmore Vinnie given topic this time around. It's Michael Topic. Is the Mount Rushmore of persons percents. Playing him or her cells in things. Yes splint this all stemmed from an alternate take on this idea. Yeah which was a term that I came up called J FEHB which is Jay Leno playing Jay Leno in movies and he's always playing the same type of character Jay Leno. It's always the same sort of role. which is Jay Leno standing on stage on? TV usually in the background. Some sort of so I guess a kid is the president of the United States is there. He's right here in the room with us on our parents but I just love the idea of Jay Leno and I thought yeah well okay. Maybe that's too limiting. Maybe we don't WanNa talk about Jay Leno for thirty five to forty two minutes. Okay Yeah and I thought well let's yourself so let's expand the idea of someone that plays themselves in a movie. Yeah and that's pretty interesting to one. What sort of role is going to be? Are you going to be playing yourself as a comedian on. TV like Jay Leno does in various roles. Are you going to be someone. That is I don't know like like the is going to be like someone in a band is alive band that considered themselves. You know I believe in a movie like a UH Fast Times fast times maybe back to school something like that like going to school yet. Lingo Boina was the band that was on onstage playing an ongoing wingo song. Also another great person playing himself in back to school. When Kurt vonnegut plays Kurt Kurt vonnegut and gets yelled out because he does he turns in a report and doesn't know anything about finding all? Yeah no he ghost writes. It's a report for Rodney dangerfield about curt. Von Kurt Vonnegut Book and the teachers like nothing about Kurt Vonnegut. He's got his SAG card for coffee. Achievers wanted to do with more jobs where you have to get in so I think that this is a much more wide open category because like when I was starting to research and look it up and I was like Oh there are a lot more movies and oh this is a really interesting take in. Oh my God this can go on for forever of someone that just is playing being themselves or playing. A caricature is version of themselves. Yeah and I love the EGO that is potentially involved in that too. I love the idea is like okay. I I wrote this part for you in the movies. It's like I'm a good actor. I'd I'd love to be in the well. The part is you know. What can I be me? Does this movie even go on if this person. Jason is not in his movie and I think that is. We'll see where this goes right interesting. Okay Manfreddy all right so my first choice. Ah by the way it while. I was researching this. I realized that oftentimes when you have a celebrity playing themselves in a movie they wind up having some of the best lines in the whole movie and I think all of the ones I've chosen i. I think they have some great lines. Oh so just just throwing that out there or something I realize is going through redoing my research. This is certainly no exception. It's Kareem abdul-jabbar her as attendant over turnover as cream abdul-jabbar as lieutenant over in airplanes and I get that right I think he was earnings. Murdoch Murdoch okay. But he's really Korean. Yeah which we find out in the penultimate scene with him where he starts yelling at the Little Kia. WHO Says No? You're Kareem abdul-jabbar. My Dad says you don't Hustle Back on defense. Yes yes we don't quite know it then but it's not until he's pulled out of the seat and he's wearing the tiny laker shorts. So that's the best that's the last seen as he's passed out because he ate the fish and he's got the actual shorts on but that's when he goes into the whole listen. I've been hearing that since I've been. Ucla out there every night night you tell your old man tried dragging linear and Walton up and down the court for Forty eight minutes out the best. Oh Yeah just a great example and cream at the time was seen as somebody who was not was not somebody who is going to be in a comedic world. Yeah he was very much thought of as this very serious the kind of standoffish in some ways. He's transitioned into this esoteric BRAINIAC author and whatever. But at the time he kind of had this he was notorious for having this kind of prickly personality so to see him in this like broad wacky comedy and then to see him having having the self awareness to play like this fictionalized Meta version of himself. Yeah must have been just wild when when airplane for actually till Walton and you think Zanny comedy I'd Love See beloit nearly yeah. He is comedy wherever he goes cream. Definitely not did Kareem to anything before this other than like fight Bruce early in the top of the game death No I believe he was. He may have but I I don't I don't know anything big. That is a hell well. Here's cream anything big. What a hell of a resume to be like? Oh Yeah who's in a game of debt. And then I split like the blind grandmaster at the top of the DOJ. Oh and this is like Oh yeah comedic. Ya highlight three rules on Mannix on sorry a man on Maddox a guy named Jeff. Emergency man stuck in car. That's cast a a little little Honda man from Atlantis. Dark Sort of like these sort of bit role not that. This is a huge role either. Yeah but you know of all of the of all of the quotable things that are happening airplane one of the most quotable movies of all time. This is what that sticks out. Oh Yeah for sure. Oh that's great choice a win. Well I would be remiss if I did not mention Jay. Leno didn't think about it. So my choice Jay Leno. Oh starring in every movie between Nineteen Ninety three and two thousand fifteen though because he was in all of them Dave nineteen ninety-three Wayne's World Two nineteen ninety-three Major League to ninety four for the birdcage contact in outmanned city wag the dog Ed. TV space cowboys. John Q.. Joanna man calendar girls stuck on you. Mr Three Thousand First Auto cars starring as Jay Leno. Oh that's hilarious The astronaut farmer underdog the Great Buck. Howard I'm still here? deliveryman in Ted to doing I'm doing basically the same thing where he would flash to television and you need some sort of social commentary of Jay Leno being on the tonight show where the tonight show or whatever of him telling some sort of hacky jokes that Jay is so good. Yeah and the other night. Emily me watching the birdcage and he did the exact same thing. When he's talking about Senator Kevin Kelly who is the The super serious character played by I gene Hackman. And just he's he's not caught but his like his friend is stuck in some sort of underage sex scandal and and it just like. What do you need Jay Leno? Yeah we need Jay Leno Air and it's funny how he just ground you into a certain sense of reality The the movies do this every once in a while would like the McLaughlin group where he flash to I think they were in in like Independence Day or some sort of thing like that where you need some sense of reality of aliens attacking the world or whatever it is all all you need is to show that their jokes being made in this reality and they're all being done by Jalen let is kind of his are because you would think at at some point it would be some other show like was there another did did. It's funny because a carry. reasoner think it should have been his show. Occasionally you'll see like you know in a movie though flash to a television production or it's like the news. Yeah and it doesn't feel the real news. It feels like a production of news. But if you see Ed Kramer on their right if you see like the MSNBC logo so if you see Jay Leno making a joke in the movie day like what does the President Mitchell lately has this guy been having too many happy meals. I'm I'm reading this off. I am the but these are the types of like. That's all you're gonNA get and Jay. Leno can retire off of just. Oh Yeah nineteen movies. I mentioned and yeah like just the paychecks that you get this off joke or whatever. 'CAUSE IT requires you to go into the full setup and use the stage to use his production company. I'm sure Oka- those particular regular season. I would imagine like and he just has this industry. That's all built off of you have to think of when was OJ. Ninety Ninety three ninety four four like he's just got in under the wire before he kinda took off with the Dancing Ito's and all that he he became just this name brand while how easy is it for him to just sitting there just put on the time like five minutes gotTa do this Happy Times. Can you make it look more like. You're reading the prompt. No problem no problem. All right man Freddie all right it's my second one is a private probably. I believe the most recent one on this list it is Keanu Reeves. Always be my. Maybe oh the netflix movie. Yes with Alli Wong and Randall Park and and I got a chance to watch this a couple months ago and I off really great movie. Okay if you'd have not had a chance to see it I'm getting kind of blank.
