"The sound really disappears. And once Maya walks away and then Danielle follows her in separately. It's kind of like she walks across a threshold, that threshold being the gate where people are mingling and you just notice subtly the sound come back on. The conversations that are taking place in that space that just emphasizes this sense of them truly for a second, even though they're only maybe 5 feet away actually getting away for this private personal moment with each other. But then it's back to reality. And this is another one, like 9 days. It has a really strong ensemble. I think Senate is very good. Molly Gordon, as I said, as Maya, you've got Polly Draper as Debbie, the mother, Fred melamed being Fred melamed as the father to Danielle. And I thought Danny D Ferrari, who I've never seen before or don't remember seeing it before as max who's that aforementioned sugar daddy is also really good. Yeah, did you get any vibes? And I forget if I maybe mentioned this or referenced it when I first brought Shiva baby up on the show from a previous golden brick nominee krisha from trejo Schultz because. It's kresha, but replace the psychological horror with comedy. But absolutely. Right. The claustrophobia, you're exactly right. And it being this singular occasion and this one character this main character, everything unfolds around her and her state of mind and her point of view in both films. And she is just out to sea. That main character is out to see and struggling, swimming against the tide to try to mix metaphors here, I guess in both films. So yeah, I absolutely did think of krisha and think they make a pretty a pretty good pair, the one that might scare you away from wanting to spend any time with your family. Exactly. The holidays. So yeah, definitely co recommend Shiva baby. So all of these films, we just listed our feature directing debuts. They're all available to rent on most platforms. And yeah, let me get to one more nominee that I fit in recently. It is test pattern. Another harrowing watch, though for very different reasons, I would say this comes from writer director, Michelle Ford, and it basically traces a relationship that is rocked when the woman is sexually assaulted while out with a friend, the next morning her boyfriend, guides her through the increasingly bureaucratic process of filing a police report, obtaining a medical examination. So the movie is broken up into three sections, really. We see how this couple meets. They are played very well. These are really lived in comfortable performances by a pair of actors who have a fair amount of experience, even though this is a writing directing debut. It's Brittany S hall. And will brill. Both quite good. And the first third, maybe a little less than that is chronicling how they met and the rapport they build up and really this cozy domestic space. They build for each other safe space. Then we get the night of the assault, where the filmmaking really becomes kind of Rivera and bold and interesting, even what you're watching is very disturbing. The Britney is hall character is out with a friend, a couple of men approach them and ply them with drinks. It's heavily implied. They slip them some sort of roofie at some point. And we see as Rishi is dancing. You know, Ford employs these streaking colors, some really interesting editing going on to capture her disoriented state. And then the next morning when risha reconnects with avin, it becomes something like in some ways Adam, it reminded me of a film we reviewed never rarely sometimes always. Yeah, also a golden brick shortlist. Yeah, there you go. Yeah. Finalist. Kind of tracing, you know, how the system is not set up to provide either the care or the justice that these people are searching. And it's complicated by the fact that rasha is black, Evan is white. She works in a corporate job manager job, very professional white collar. He is a tattoo artist artist. So as their negotiating these systems, their responded to by people, race and class, both come into play. And Ford never shoves that to the forefront. The filmmaking here is really subdued, but effective. We kind of get this sense of their frustration seeping into the atmosphere. And so I do think the movie and maybe this is a testament to just how engrossed I was, it leaves off maybe a little earlier than I wished it had. Not because I wanted resolution to this story. I think that's the point. Is that these two are not going to meet resolution, but this is such a rich couple at the center. There was more to explore. It seemed to me about how this has rocked their dynamic. So for the filmmaking, though, and the boldness of the movie and the topic itself, I think that is enough in the performances too to put it on our list. So that's tough pattern. I will add it to my list to see. I'll add it to our golden brick shortlist page at film spotting. Net. And Josh, I'm going to now return the favor and give you one to watch see. I'm not going to let you just own this golden brick award. I'm doing my homework here. All right. I'm seeing some stuff. Indeed, the killing of two lovers directed by Robert Matteo. This debuted way in the before times. Back in 2020, the Sundance Film Festival, it did have a limited theatrical run, however, earlier this year. Right now, if you want to watch the killing of two lovers, it is available to Hulu subscribers, also available on demand on most other platforms. Mature ins directing credits go back to 2008. He has a couple of co directing credits on features. But two lovers, it's the first I've heard of him. I don't know if you were aware of him before this atom. I was not. The film itself is about a.

"Camp to be what Jared Leto is doing in this movie, which is like massacre theater in the heck out of this role. You have a gift I'm telling you. Oh, and stop. Stop your going to make. Nobody is ever said that to me, no, but why don't you have your own life? What he's doing, you know, by making the accent a punchline in almost every scene is he's distancing himself from the material, right? He's kind of winking and letting us know, I know I'm being ridiculous. It doesn't help that he's either in heavy makeup or prosthetics and almost unrecognizable. And he wants desperately wants us all to be in on the joke. So that's one level that the movie is operating. But aside from that, he's on one end. And then you have driver story, which we both love Adam Driver. And I've got to say, this is one of the most dull performances I've seen from him, and I think it's because this character is being set up as the straight man to the Lady Gaga figure. And he doesn't have a ton to do until the final third, where I'll just say he is asked to suddenly become something of a villain that turn is not well set up in terms of the characterization. And so you have long stretches of this movie, which are pretty boring. I'll just say, are not camp in any way shape or form. However you define it. And drivers unfortunately stuck in those sections. So there's one person who's nailed this, at least for me. For my understanding of camp, and that is Lady Gaga. She's great here. And essentially what she's doing is she's well aware of how she can just give the clink of an espresso cup as we see in the trailer and make that kind of this thrilling entertaining melodramatic gesture. Her eyes as we knew from A Star Is Born in 2018. You know, the camera loves her. She knows how to work the camera and she knows how to flash those eyes. And in this role she does all of that, but here's the trick, and she does this wearing period, but yet really, I don't want to say ridiculous, but I'll land a shout fits. Let's say that. Outlandish outfits. And hairstyles, yet you get the sense that she believes in this character in the material at the same time. And that to me is the key. You want to thread that needle for something to be camp. You don't want everyone thinking that they're just making something that's a joke. I don't think that really hits for me in terms of camp. At the same time, Lady Gaga's accent, it's off the leash as well. It's kind of all over. But there's a humanity to her character too. That is always there in each of the scenes, even as she's entertaining us. So I was really disappointed in this. And the main warning I would just say is like, if you go into it not expecting it to be almost three hours of laughing, maybe you'll be better prepared and you'll enjoy it a little bit more than I did. I don't think it works overall. You could point to Scott and say, isn't he the one who should kind of manage all of these tones and deliver something consistent? I don't think he manages to do that. And so this really only works for me when Gaga is on the screen, which is a fair amount. So, you know, there is that. This is an unfair trivializing question. But as we are cramming here for end of the year, critics ballots and our own top ten shows is House of Gucci worth seeing because of Lady Gaga's performance and is it so good that I need to be sure to consider it before I finish my ballot or are you not willing to rate it that high? I mean, that's a really tough question. I don't have her performance that high when I look at others that I've noted so far this year. I think it's just a matter as I said of what is surrounding it kind of being at turns deadening and off putting to me that it's just hard to kind of put at the level of other performances that are contributing to a film that on every other cylinder is also hitting. House of Gucci is currently playing in wide release. We're going to stick with you Josh, you also caught up with Spencer featuring Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana. It's directed by the Chilean director Pablo Lorraine, probably best known for another intimate portrait of political royalty, 20 16s, Jackie, with Natalie Portman, as Jackie Kennedy, Lorraine, also, like Ridley Scott directed another movie that came out earlier this year, Emma, Spencer isn't a birth to death portrait of Diana, but is like Jackie about a brief but critical time in her life. In this case, it's a weekend in the early 90s when Diane has decided that her marriage to Prince Charles and the demands of being a part of the royal family just isn't working for her. Probably not fair to compare them, especially since I've seen neither. But I know Josh, you are a fan of the series, The Crown. I think a recent season covered the time period that this film does. So what does Lorraine up to here that makes this portrayal of Diana? So different if anything. Yeah, it's totally different. As a matter of fact, I was talking to someone who's a big fan of The Crown really frustrated by Spencer. And I think it's just because they're looking for something that Lorraine and Kristen Stewart are not at all interested in providing which is a larger view of this familial institution. I mean, we go maybe a third into this movie before another royal family member is given a line of dialog. So this is locked in as Jackie was on its central figure. On its main character. And I think it works a little bit better here than it did in Jackie. I wasn't quite as taken with Natalie Portman's performance in that film as others were. And I think Kristen Stewart is doing something a little more interesting under similar conditions. The movie, the camera is tight on her face. Almost all the time, it's following her down these ornate hallways as Lorraine did with Portman in Jackie, both of these films have a kubrickian shining sort of vibe to them. But here, what works is I feel like it's almost pushed further into the realm of psychological horror. And you get this by some other elements that are added, talking about a movie that everyone is on the same page. You have this dissonant omnipresent score by Johnny Greenwood. The cinematography by Claire mathon is so spooky, so misty and morose, these grounds seem to have this fog around them that seeps through the walls into these halls. And then you have Stewart's performance, which we both devoted a show to her a couple years back Adam. So appreciate her as an actress. I think she is doing some really strong work here. And also falling back sometimes as Portman did to sort of a mannered rhythm of the dialog, delivering it in a way that it's almost like a song, a melody that you recognize after a couple of scenes. She's playing the same melody, the way she's spitting out these words. So it took me a little bit to get past that. What I think she is really doing well is, again, going back to Lady Gaga and House of Gucci using her eyes and giving us darting eyes there of portraying this woman who feels trapped and is looking for a way out and really the most impressive thing about her performance is her use of posture. Because it changes so often, sometimes it does mimic iconic imagery of Princess Diana, but more often or not, you watch how it shifts because she's aware of who's watching her and she'll carry herself totally differently, which is just a fascinating thing to trace over the film, how she's doing that. So I think Stuart is really good here and for me, it was maybe a little more successful than Jackie. So fans of Jackie I would imagine would really go for Spencer as well. They are circling us. Didn't you know, don't you read? It seems they're startling just me. Not you. Just me. The thing is, Diana, it has to be two of you. There's two of me. There's two father, two of everyone. It's the real one. And the one they take pictures of. You have to be able to make your body do things. You hate. That you hate. Yes. So out on House of Gucci, but in on Spencer doing you got it. Yep. And you are correct, we devoted a top 5 to Kristen Stewart, our top 5 Kristen Stewart scenes back in March, 2017, that is episode 6, 27, if you want to look that up, you can find that over at film spotting dot net click on lists and Spencer is currently playing in limited release. I have an original rock musical. Hey, boy, genius. And I have spent the last 8 years of my life writing. He's getting out. You're going to be rich and famous and rewriting. Did you crack it yet? So close. And rewriting. Can I hear it? Any day now? 8 years. And the time keeps ticking..

Ladies do well. that's because don't they get like pika or something and they have weird cravings. Yeah i mean. I guess i could. You could see blaming that. On having a symbiotic but yeah yeah doing it doing it. Because you want your carnage. Yeah i can't imagine that. Just like i wanna lose weight so i'm gonna eat. Clay is at all the same thing or anywhere near as safe as eating your law. That's the bar will aaron if you've ever been yelled at by your mom to two year food. Yes yeah you know for a long time. I tried to go the duck route it ten workout so appreciate that. The i had been yelled at quite a few times because in our family. When like you do appetizers at a restaurant. it's first-come-first-serve oh yeah. I love mozzarella cheese sticks. And unfortunately if you don't chew those all the way they just string down the back of your throat choke your sister's birthday and everybody gets mattie he said in a very specific example just saying going into like. I'm bigger than everybody else. So those are my. I should have listened to horace. Fletcher founder of fletcher rising diet and he just took two into a whole new level. You realize that when. I play the preview of this. My dog is isn't be running around the house. Every time you say fletcher. Oh yeah it'll be awesome. Okay the idea is to chew all foods and liquids were. I'm still trying to figure that out a hundred times before swallowing. Oh i have heard of this. This is the bore yourself out of extra weight. Diet quote nature will castigate. Those who don't masticate claimed dr horace fletcher founder of one of the first ever fad diets. I can't tell if. I want to give him points for that. Rhyme or just shudder. Okay yeah just shudder as what. I was doing this victorian era. Dr one up to your mom by not only telling you to your food but to to each byte exactly one hundred times. That's so yeah. No even liquids had to be chewed or masticated to properly mixed with the saliva. Chew your soup and your soda and your coffee and all of it so this dude just had a weird thing thing and he sold it to people. Right like yeah. So some of fletcher's ideas were ahead of their time. Like being sure of exactly. What's in your food before eating like kind of at the time that was that was new and remember. If you can't pronounce it you can look up how to pronounce it. Drew others like never eating when angry worried or sad. Just we're kind of strange. And as if weight loss wasn't enough fletcher even went so far as to claiming massification with 'cause you're Bowel movements to smell better. I okay. I mean just for when you need to put the hard sell down well. Unfortunately these auditees weren't enough to drive people away. Because notables like thomas edison. Martin wayne and john d. rockefeller all gave the diatribe famously. Voices dietary reason just reason in general. Yeah those are all people. You wanna take food advice for at least if you take mark.

Oh i've heard of this. This is the. I hate my life. So i'm gonna sleep through it until i think it's better diet i. It's kind of close. Yes okay know. Ignore those people who humble brag about never sleeping. You should soak in that slumber and get in that. That weight loss loftiness. I mean admittedly. I'm super onboard. So far some dieters have gone off the deep end their plan. You only worry about hunger. When you're awake right. I mean no. That's not true at all. You have some pretty vivid. ooh look at me. I'm mr never woke up chewing on my pillow so this plan is dangerous. It actually recommends taking prescription meds to fall asleep or at least ten hours a day watch and sometimes up to twenty no and hopefully we don't need to tell you to live on sedatives don't don't do also twenty hours a day like one presumes you have to pay for those yes well. An overdose is a very big risk and elvis presley supposedly tried the at once and put himself into a coma. Because i heard about this and then he woke up on the crapper and dies probably saw that story. We're gonna get hate mail about elvis and you know we are huge. Proponents of sleep but We recommend seven eight hours. A day aimed to stay in that range. Don't don't go don't ever too much outside of it right. It's yeah it's what you need. So that's how that goes well. I haven't even better diet. This is a french diet. that has very simple guidelines. Eat nothing at all. I mean officials on this bizarre diet actually includes zero food in order to shed those pounds. Don't think that's a diet. We have other words for that. Yeah starving yourself. It is actually believed to have been followed by many celebrities down in hollywood. Yeah and if you think this is weird enough. Wait until i tell you what is needed to eat or drink while you're on air i mean air is in the name. Yeah well air diet is said to be inspired. And based on the concept of breathe. Terry and ism. Oh that thing that killed a bunch of people gotcha right which is the belief that one could live on the energy from sunlight and air. Yeah and do not need nourishment from food famously wrong. Though those people all of them and Interestingly widely brooks who founded the breathe the -tarian institute of america which promoted the theory. That air alone can keep our bodies physically active and manifested incomplete light. Whatever that means as means she's made of chlorophyll is also known as virtual eating diet or air diet which typically means eating nothing but water and a soup in a weird salt soup concoction see. That's that's still leading liquid and right can't help healthy notice. How a live to make that statement. This lady is like clearly she's cheating. I was like oh weird soup concoction. All right it's a soil. Certainly green every day everything you need to survive and want bland flavourless liquid. Yep so this diet has been made popular by a dull chain cabana campaign which featured madonna and other celebrities holding food up to their mouths but not eating. It referred to as half hooting. I'm pretty sure that in english that translates into era -tarian self-flagellation. It was touted in the french magazine. Grazia as the diet the air diet has simply one rule eat nothing save for water and assault soup concoction. Say for the things that we say you can eat because we know that this will kill you so and the weird thing is is that so. It's not that you're not eating you. You aren't eating but actually you. You have to pretend to eat sort of so if whatever you're craving you make and you go have but then you pretend you eat it but instead of putting it in your mouth you take a nice deep breath of it and that's supposed to help sustain you and help you live through this diet so so this was just made by people who hate themselves right because the only reason you go to all that much trouble to to really torture yourself as if you kind of maybe like a little bit and they just hate hungry people. I'm going to get all this food. And i'm just going to smell it and then throw it away. This seems like a group of people who need to just accept that this is their thing and stop trying to make it something that's not So simply hold a fork full of linguini or a spoonful of ice cream up to your mouth maybe taken a few of the foods tantalizing aromas and pretend to eat it whether they ideas to trick your dinner guests or your mind that you're eating. It is the name of the game all for the purpose of dropping a few pounds the dieting placebo effect. I think it kind of course that even a placebo as a sugar pill. That is more calories than saying but nuts. it's the air diet involves faking or pretending to eat while going through all the motions of eating including placing food on your plate. Cutting it putting it on a utensil and holding it up to your lips just don't let it touch your mouth so i don't even get to save them like the food bill with this. I know this is the diet of extraordinary accessing waste. It's like you're gonna lose a lot of weight. Your dog is going to gain a lot of right. Everything's turning up fight. You are allowed to soup to sip a soup if you want to call it. That ate soup. Allow which to be exact which is made from water and salt and it promises to keep you hydrated and nourished while also saving you money because you still have to spend money on the food that you're not eating so saltwater for the sake of hydration not an awesome track record i didn't think so myself but I don't know enough to ask questions. Yeah i maybe. I've just not been brave enough to ask what humans really need and if big food has got no i'm just gonna take another huff of this chicken sandwich deeply on these ribs heat. I'm so satiated right now. Get me some saltwater. I'm gonna go have a nice fine aroma dinner in the train tracks. Well i have one more wonderful diet for you. And i guess maybe it's unfair to compare this diet with any of the other diets. This diet became a fad in the modeling industry and soon spread to figure spaghetti industry. I know this one cocaine close. Well not really another type of white substance though. This is the cotton ball diet. Oh okay which doesn't actually involve eating healthy healthy foods instead. Dieters told to literally eat cotton balls dipped in juice. that can't possibly be good for you. The theory is The juice usually orange juice eliminate. We'll give the cotton balls flavor and the cotton balls will keep the dieter full as they expand in the stomach Yeah so that's not good for you. Yup and aside from the craziness of not eating not foods that cotton ball diet is very very dangerous. Oh my god that gives me the willies. I can't touch cotton balls. Oh i hate the actually has the take the cotton none of my pillow. Oh i can't. I really don't caught me like with a pair chopsticks like they can't do it. No yeah i hate to do. Oh i'm so uncomfortable but Dipping cotton balls and juice or smoothies. Helps trick the pallet into thinking. You're eating food. When you are not consuming any calories or any nutrients whatsoever so not entirely dissimilar to our last diet but with the added bonus of whatever negative side effects eating cotton house. Oh yeah yeah. That's exactly it because your body can't digest cotton balls remain in your stomach or intestines and they mix with mucus and other food particles gross creating a very famous harry potter magical thing. You wanna have airballs. 'cause you get airballs it's called a besar azores. This were like magical mystical stones but actually they're just gross masses instead of models. Yeah no that's really icky and those don't even help get you to space. And when something can't be digested it can obstruct. The digestive tract and an intestinal obstruction prevents food and liquids from passing through. Which is great. Yeah and left untreated. It can lead to death. Healthy tissue infection and Yeah all the time Bay source must always be surgically removed. So it's don't gotten boss. Don't do that and don't eat nothing and just eat food. Just eat some eat some vegetables. Go outside and take a walk. Yeah goddamn so. President and ceo of the national eating disorder association. Lynn grief says the models are suspected of partaking in the cotton ball diet for many years to maintain their emaciated frames. What is more disturbing. Is that the cotton ball. Diet is starting to go. Viral with young girls. Demonstrating the diet practice on youtube. Which is awesome. That's super super good. Oh modeling industry so frequent gross. Well yeah and currently. There is an estimated twenty million women and ten million men suffering from eating disorders and reports that forty to sixty percent of girls begin to worry about their bodies shape or size at like the age of six which is just terrible. Yeah that's so shitty so it's no wonder that crazy fad diets like the cotton ball diet or all. These other ones have have become fads and just these alarming statistics which is soto dangerous so dangerous in an already terribly. Dangerous and predatory industry so maybe stay away from those foods and diets. And i'll have some broccoli. Then i will to right. Just you know if you're really worried about it double down on vegetables. Eat some drinks water. Maybe maybe make a rice bowl instead of you know pork chops. Oh yeah there's options and we got this options. Don't eat cotton balls and don't eat nothing. Just right oh my god.

I have no question in my mind that people have done everything in the world to try to lose weight. yeager says but i don't think it was ever widespread. Yeah so maybe. Maybe there's some hope for the humankind not everyone wanted to eat a tapeworm well. They just i feel like maybe having worms like if only for because of our pets and unlike america that's still something that's top of mind as of of being bad so you do it on purpose.

Chew your soup and your soda and your coffee and all of it so this dude just had a weird thing thing and he sold it to people. Right like yeah. So some of fletcher's ideas were ahead of their time.

It has an awesome bottle with like a cool owl on it which is like a painted bottle which are my favorite. Because i like to cut these tournament glasses. And i gotta say this is like the first beer. I've ever seen that. it's embracing it was brewed with rights. That is part of why i bought it. I was looking through bombers and everything was just like a sour beer. Did the import section. And i was like okay. Sour beers our our bear sour beer rice beer but the rises in bold. Well that's an interesting claim. Yeah this is seven percent alcohol to okay that will get it. Done and up product of japan is his back through with read write and it is quite read. It is a dark orange. Maybe a burnt orange kind of color. Yeah looks a lot darker than i was expecting. Let's good it doesn't taste like seven percent at all. No this has an average rating about three point seven. Three it is from the kikuchi brewery in japan and Yes eighty four score of the ba score. Yeah no that's good. Yeah strong or a belgian pale. this is really taste. Yeah no. I really like this. This is tasty isn't very happy at all. No there's there's quite a bit alcohol in it but it's not too prevalent. No you can't even really taste at all. If you just gave me this plane with no context. I would think that this is a lighter beer because it is really light like There's a lot of flavor but there's not a lot of body. Yeah it's really light. It doesn't have a particularly generous head. It's not very bitter. It's not very happy. I would say that this is like a a really light. Like three point zero day drinkers. Something i can tell that it's a belgian like a golden ale is what it tastes like. Okay yeah. I guess there's a little bit of that funk which i know that golden ales typically have more alcohol but this doesn't necessarily taste like yeah. This is. yeah not at all what. I would have expected in fact even though this is a wild yeast. I've been stupid really liked this. Yeah this is really good. This is really good. I'm gonna give this a straight up ten. Because i've never had a style of like this red rice and yeah damn ten. I'm going give this tend to. This is maybe not a beer. That i would drink every day. I mean it is a little breezy. It's really good. And it's not what i expected. And you know. I don't have a problem with it being race. Spear if you're gonna put it on the label right. Yeah i mean to embrace it. Yeah yeah right. If you're gonna make beer with rice and then tell me. It's perfectly hopped mountain spring water. We're gonna have a fight but it actually on the back of this bottle. It says this red rice ale was brewed with special red rice which has been cultivated in ancient times in japan cool. Please enjoy the complex taste and beautiful natural. I this is good. Well happy birthday buddy thank you. This is delicious and if you wanna wish a happy birthday before we dive into our story this week and i tunes review or wherever. You're listening is a great way to do that really out there. We haven't had one in a while. Yeah so through a combination of poor self care and anxiety. I've been able to lose quite a bit of weight over the pandemic fantastic. I looked great. Oh yeah so much that. I've had to add holes to my belts and i have trouble keeping my pants up because i'm awesome but that last one was not a new problem. No i'm not bragging. Because i know as soon as i start taking care of myself. The weight will come back but my baggy pants did get me thinking. What are some other really stupid ways to lose weight tapeworms. Yes that is one of them. Thank you dammit. Yeah i told you. I was gonna make you lose your appetite. Oh i don't want. I'm glad we already eight so whether it involves eating miracle foods or eating very little foods. There's various reasons why some of these diets are just absolutely the worst. Alas science proves time and time again that watching what you eat moving more the real miracle workers turns on you are going to have to put some effort no matter what still this doesn't prevent many and we mean many fat diets from cropping up sweeping the nation and then disappearing into oblivion when they've been rooted out as the false prophets. They are no kidding. I get it if there was a silver bullet for getting rid of the moods. I would probably go down but since the answer is not eating bacon in jogging. I'm just gonna buy another bro. The solution to that problem. Well i do have a solution If you happen to live in close proximity to a swamp you're obesity might not be your fault. No at least. According to a seventeenth century writer thomas short who inexplicably observed his amazingly titled tracy the causes and effects of coppula. Nss what yeah. he said. That fat people mostly live near swamps. That probably moving away from said swamps would cause a decrease in body way. He could tell the difference between people and like giant alligator. I just was figuring. He was observing florida floor. Yield florida among so well. If you live in florida if you move away might get skinny. I mean yeah. Nope nope none of that tracks. I have no idea yeah. Now that doesn't matter the seventeenth century was a fun time. Well he wrote it on a squirrel. So well i'm pretty sure you've all heard of the master cleanse where you drink lemon honey and cayenne pepper and pretty much dehydrate yourself. Skinny is that a diet. I thought that was the cure. All that those people in canada went to jail for killing their kid with the was also a master cleanse. Oh okay it's got a name that's terrible or there's the cabbage soup diet where you just eat cabbage soup. Until you're really sad and skinning the real capstone to that diet. Is that eventually your house. Smell like cabbage. You lose all the weight running away from it. But then there's the thing that erin mentioned the tape firm diet. Oh don't be real. Oh yeah see. The tapeworm diet works by swallowing a pill that has a tapeworm egg inci when the egg eventually hatches the tapeworm will grow inside your body and eat.

Oscars announce new diversity requirements for Best Picture noms

"Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has made a new announcement. And that is that movies will have to meet new inclusion standards in order to be eligible for best picture at the Academy Awards that is going to start with the ceremony being held in 2024. And they're being put in place to encourage representation on and off the screen in order to reflect the diversity of the movie going audience. I think this is actually Cool idea. Well, I think some people convene this in two ways where it's like, Oh, jeez. It's forced, but frankly, the only way that you could never really get change is when you specifically intentionally go about Creating change. We did this at colleges where it's like colleges wanted to be more diverse. While you can't just wish that wishing that is not a strategy, really intentionally go out and look for the people that you want to make up what you want your student body to look like and represents.

Though surprise, guests are coming up, so you will not want to miss it. You guys, but we got to start off with the ladies up for lead actress in Drama Series Right? The category is Stack Jen Aniston. Sandra Oh's and those are just some of the big names who is going to take the win. What do you guys think? I just think Zendaya is GonNa take you was this show that everybody was talking about? It was unbelievable and not everybody got to watch the morning show with Jennifer Aniston because. Apple TV was not readily available so I think Zendaya is going to take this I was not paying the fourteen ninety nine. GD! There was so many submissions one hundred thirty five submissions. This year for this category lost those. So things I think women I'm kind of with you. Just although ozark for me has been one of my favorite shows forever and ever and. Laura Linney could take it out that. Could get in I. could not get into. It was like I. Really Try just I couldn't do it, but that's just me. All right we gotta talk about snubs and surprises, though big little lies when pretty much everything? Last time it was nominated. But this year came up short. No Best Actress nomination, no best limited series. I'M GONNA. Ask what you guys think about. These into getting snubbed a little bit. Should've been made, I thought. Was Okay, but they should've kept it at season one. They should have just wrote it out, but you know what Merrill got nominated. Laura Linney got nominated. She is Gucci ever. Reese Witherspoon as a producer of this show. This is a win for her, so she is as though she got snubbed. She is nominated because two of our actresses were. Absolutely. Strong enough season two. Why did you like season two as much Morgan I know you were saying earlier before the show? Why you're putting me on glass. Scott, I mean maybe I didn't want to hear that I just felt like. The first season was just too hard to top to be honest. It was so good everything was everything about it was so hook line and sinker. Everyone was invested as I just feel like. They wanted to ride out that high season two was okay, but you never want to have your second season just. Just be okay I just felt like even though Merrill we all bow down to Merrill. She can handle any role. I just felt like she wasn't going to save it. And although she got nominated, she gets nominated. It's just that's just what you do. She acts that well. She deserves it all the time. I just what Jessica said I. Don't think it should have been made I think we should have just. Episodes in the second series. I love the song. The second series is still a Mike Finish shoot and I'm never finished it, so I thought.

"The author of breaking the two party. Doom loop the case for Multiparty Democracy in America. Thank you so much thank you my. This was a lot of fun. Uh Now the SPIEL. The Oscar. Nominations were announced today and like every year for the last. I think six the celebration of the glories of cinema became a grump fast about the paucity of female or minority nominees. Here was ceremony host. Isa Ray after the best director. The nominations were announced Hustler's Laureen Skafar. Area snubbed the farewells. Lulu Wang snubbed snubbed. Greta GERWIG snubbed. Snubbing little women. It's just what the Oscars due in Two Thousand Fifteen Twenty sixteen the Oscars were labeled as so white Hashtag Oscar so white. That was a protest over the lack of minority acting nominees in two thousand eighteen. Greta GERWIG was once again left off the best director through list causing Natalie Portman to say and here are the Armao nominees last year. There was no shockingly blatant racial Scholer gender-specific snub just in case the Oscars were thinking of being something less than a total bummer. Kevin Hart was announced as host then withdrew drew after scrutiny of his past homophobic jokes jokes. That were being quotes jokes. Maybe it's possible that on artistic merit. Little women wasn't wasn't his well directed a film as the Irishman or nine hundred seventeen or the other three movies that were nominated. I don't know what does that even mean Greta Gerwig was pointing a camera and working with actors actors and listening performances. Scorsese was doing that but then distorting some of their facial characteristics with de Aging Technology Sam Mendez was achieving leaving some sort of technological miracle to make World War One appear as if it all happened in one take I mean he seemed to be generally different things gerwig partner romantic partner Noah Alabama back was also left off the best director list for marriage story. That's a movie. That's a lot like little women. Great acting insight into the human condition but mostly people talking rooms the Oscars these days seem not you define great directing as people mostly talking in rooms. Of course the Oscar subjective and the aren't life or death they aren't Austrailia wildfires coulds force or even educating our children. So let's talk about something that is more like educating our children. Educating our children specifically New York City children although the issue I'm going to talk about is playing out throughout the country black and Latino children school children are losing out on the advanced opportunities unity's of selective high schools and magnet programs. I say Black Latino and not students of color because Asians are greatly overperforming. In fact in New York City Asian Asian students make up fifteen percent of the overall student population but account for forty percent of the slots in the city's so called gifted and talented programs whites make up the same proportion portion of overall students about fifteen percent. They take up about thirty three percent of the seats in that program. This means that African Americans and Hispanic students which are most of the students in New York City represent a small minority of students in gifted and talented classes. This is a problem but you might not believe what one solution one on. Prominent solution is. It's to end all gifted and talented classes. While the classes certainly benefit the students involved are really sought after by parents. The problem is that black and Latino students are under represented and black and Latino moms and DADS would love to get their students into classes but they can't so so. A task force assembled by New York Mayor Bill De Blasio recommended. Let's get rid of all the gifted and talented classes. Now I was thinking being with the problem is there aren't enough black and Latino kids in these classes. Why not get more black and Latino kids in these classes and let's not do it through complicated end arounds? Sounds like thinking about the wealth of the neighborhood. A kid is from or the average elementary school. Lunch program the average number of kids on paid launch. They people come up with these complex proxies for poor nece or blackness or Hispanic heritage and they've been proposed as a solution Lucien for the selective high school problems have another solution. Just have a quota this is also my way to address that Oscars underrepresentation tation problem. We were talking about have a quota if women or minorities are underrepresented make sure they're represented in schooling. It would work like this. You take whatever. Minorities level of representation is in the overall population. And you make sure. And whatever you're selecting four has at least two thirds that percent of representation so we're we're talking about gifted and talented programs actually test four year olds to get into these programs. You talk about all the kids in all the schools so the schools are twenty five percent African American in New York City. Which means that you're gifted and talented program would have to have up? Seventeen percent black hits and in New York City. Forty percent of students are Hispanic. Which means is that twenty seven percent or so of the giftedandtalented slots we gotTa Hispanic students? Then when it comes to high school exams you don't just have to go with the overall population in the entire tire school district. You could say. Let's look at the overall population of every student who tested proficient on state exams and then make sure by quota their representative presentative. It's not a perfect solution. No but the very fact that we have such a dire problem speaks very largely to the imperfections that abound stuyvesant stuyvesant high school jewel of the city system. Eight hundred ninety five slots for students. Seven black students got in seven. That's not still the massively under representative seventy it's seven. So what are the argument that if you have quotas that then black students who do qualify defy will be made to feel that they only got in because of quotas will is that worse than allowing only seven black students to get into Stevenson lawsuit revealed that Harvard goes through all kinds of processes to ensure that the incoming class is fourteen point three percent African American. That's what their class is. Roughly in align with very closely in line with the African American population in that age group. Now I've never heard of a black student Harvard. Who at one point or another wasn't confronted with with the accusation? Oh you only got in here because of race. And that's tough that they have to go through it. It's a cruel thing to say it's ignorant The people saying it don't know the truth of it but let let me ask you this. Is it worse than the alternative. Have the school be widely underrepresented. Public Universities went through this in California and Texas. They didn't allow race to be considered in admissions. And what you had there wasn't. Ucla Ten thousand applicants being admitted and two hundred of them were black so maybe a quota is better than that situation. Yes maybe if some other ignorant cruel. Harvard UNDERGRAD turns to. They're black peer and said you only got in your because of race a it might not be true or be. It might be a little true but a lot better than than not getting in there at all. Let me talk about something I know well the NFL. It's experiencing a deficit of coaches of color. Just four out of the thirty. Two teams have head coaches who are Black Hispanic Manic. One method over the years has been something called the Rooney rule which mandated that candidates have concluded is finalised. This is a quote by the way you would enforce a team to give a job up to a black or Hispanic head coach. You just make sure that those candidates be put forward for consideration this is totally analogous with the Oscars. You might not realize it because they make a big big deal about who's the nominee but being nominee is just being a finalist for the award so if it drives Hollywood crazy or enough of Hollywood they would crazy when they nominate a slate of actors without any actors of color wanting just mandate that they always include a person of color. Who knows if they had done that? J. Hello just might have one for hustlers. Also since it's a closed system with the academy never have to reveal if the candidate was a beneficiary of the quota system. I mean if they had done that with J. Lo I'm sure everyone say well obviously. She deserved it. She wasn't a beneficiary of the system. Take directing if you mandate that a a female director of the five directors. One has to be female. I bet you there would be a lot more female directors getting jobs in Hollywood if you knew that. Twenty percent of the Oscar nominees. We're going to be female then executives would start giving out jobs hoping to be one of these nominees and compare this to the current situation the USC let's see Annenberg. School found out of the one thousand three hundred top grossing films from two thousand seven to two thousand nine hundred thousand. On average four point. Eight percent were directed by women quotas got a bad rap in the eighties nineties when we as a country. We're less racially aware and less likely to flat out say people of Color are under representative. Presentative diversity was not the priority then that it is now and there was a lack of bluntness which we definitely have now but now we are willing to say they're simply needs to be some black people brown people or women people among this pool of people back then we didn't say WanNa hear how much the idea of quotas had been denigrated. Play this moment from one of the three presidential debates in the year two thousand then governor George W Bush thirty was pretty clever when he said this. Affirmative of action maize quotas. I'm against it for okay. So he's the conservative here was Al Gore's answer to that I'm against quotas they're illegal. They're against the American can weigh against this backdrop phrase like affirmative action took hold they were soft palatable ways to have a quota back then if you had to rank the ills of society like Al Gore was essentially doing I think people would say well quotas are worse than a lack of diversity but now a lack of diversity has come to be regarded as not just regrettable but as evil certainly more evil than quotas so try a quota house not having quote a working out for you academy how. `Bout You New York City schools you threaten to tear down otherwise useful institutions the tuition's because they're not diverse enough so mandate diversity. Would you rather have protest movements. Angst tension well. Maybe you would if the price of that were progress. But the point is there's been no progress quotas might be at worst a band aid solution. But guess what you use. Here's when you're bleeding you use bandaids or in the case of institutions that are failing not just our ideas but it seems like are minimal requirements. They might want to try.

"I've been enjoying the writings of political scientists Lee Rotman for quite some time. Now maybe enjoying the wrong word because what Lee Druckman writes about is all the flaws of our political system but then he proposes a solution. So you might think that's the part you enjoy. No it's not because it has the effect of me saying yeah that'd work and it'll never happen. Well he's put down all his ideas all his frustrating because they're mostly true ideas into a new book about pretty much the biggest bad thing. That's going on that exp explain so many of the other bad things. It's called breaking the two party doom loop the case for multi-party democracy in America Haley. Hey Mike so why is I know that you did a lot of research on say money and politics and a lot of people will say oh. That's the biggest problem but why do you think partisanship the current flavor of partisanship is worse than anything else like money in politics corruption racism bad media etc okay. There's a lot of terrible things going on right there. Yeah yeah so pick off the top of the parade of horrible CZ. Yes the worst at that parade is is hyper partisanship Because it fundamentally threatens the Basic Foundation of democracy which is a shared sense of fairness a shared sense of legitimacy legitimacy in the basic procedures of elections and And government and what we have now is is really unprecedented level of binary Hyper partisanship that is fundamentally destroying that foundation and in the book I argue that this is actually something new that while we've already. We've always had a two party system. We have now is a genuine two party system with to truly distinct national parties equally Equally balanced both both of which have a chance to take control of Washington in any given election and that close competition and deeply divided. Two party system is is a real threat threat and for a long time. We had overlapping parties and didn't really matter that much weather. Democrats and Republicans were in charge. But now we have these two truly distinct parties and no resolution and just escalating hyper partisanship ahead. Right and the irony. And I'm using this word correctly. Is that it was political scientists. Who didn't 'cause it but said it would be a great thing? If R Tischler two party system were ideologically logically sorted and I've talked about this on the show you could go back to this big nineteen fifty study where they said Yeah we we have two parties but what do they really represent. Wouldn't it be a great thing if the Republicans were just. I don't even know if they actually made the prescription but we're going to be a great thing if they were really just conservative party in a Liberal Party that would have so many benefits came to pass and you know Current political scientists are saying. Actually that's the worst thing that could have happened. Yes so let's listen to you and those of your ilk well not all political scientists are the same and there are certainly plenty of folks who were political scientists in the nineteen fifties. WHO said actually? That's a terrible idea. But certainly at the time I am you could understand why a lot of political just might come to the conclusion that we ought to have More distinct parties because when the two parties are basically the same. It's really hard for voters to send clear signals and to know what the parties actually stand for. And that's an important piece of democracy. She is for elections to actually mean something secondarily that two party system was really based around a lot of consensus which meant that a lot? The differences in the country weren't being aired and debated and in particular. It was a consensus not to deal with civil rights at the national level and perpetuate the Jim Crow South South which I think we would not consider greatest success of of American party politics Now I think the mistake that they made was not in saying that party are you should stand for something is in thinking that there should only be two political parties and at the time they thought well couldn't possibly come to pass that American parties would become audie logical and quite distinct American politics was so non ideological at the time so ultimately it was a failure of imagination To understand what what it would look like to have to truly distinct parties representing two very different geographies very different values and fundamentally different ideas of what it means is to be an American. Is the problem that there are two parties WanNa Liberal Party and Conservative Party as much as it is the problem that let's put both of our cards on the table where both Democrats or left leaning to some degree or another. Is the problem that one of those two binary choices has gotten so oh so out there so dysfunctional so empathetic to equity. I think the answer is both The fact that we have a two party system a genuine two party says some as a problem and the fact that the Republican Party has moved so far far to the right and has embraced an increasing Li some might call anti-democratic view of democracy. Making it harder for people to vote. That's it's a serious problem but the challenge is there's no way to resolve that problem in the two party system because a lot of folks identifies Republicans and and a lot of folks think well Democratic Party is not for me so the only alternative is the Republican Party and they're motivated as much by preventing liberals from taking power as they are supporting what the Republican Party stands for. So the only way to break out of this this gridlock out of his doom loop is to essentially blow both parties and allow parties to flourish new coalitions to emerge so that. Not Everything is a is a zero-some political contest. It's not everything is trench warfare affair for the fate of the nation. But wouldn't the more doable strategy just to be Democrats beat these totally radical article Republicans. They beat them on the state level and the local level on the national level. They do the blocking and tackling they also propose a vision. They also may be benefit from the demographics which you rightly say are a little bit overblown but they benefit from demographic shift and therefore within this two party system. We don't have to change this system you essentially you make the Republicans more sensible you bring about that you breathe into life that autopsy. That Ryan's pre-bus did for the party. We have to become become less white supremacists than less anti immigration. And that's an easier fix than a total overhaul and a change. In the way American politics this is always ever been well. I think one of the challenges is that One that understates the the inevitable backlash backlash against the whatever party is in power. People overstated that in two thousand nine when Democrats took unified control of government and then there was a backlash now. This is a predictable pattern. American politics People considered us. There'd be a thermostatic nature that America moves more in a more liberal direction when Republicans are in power in a more conservative direction when Democrats are in power and I think we would likely see that same pattern continuing So I'm not sure how Democrats Democrats are going to get enough of of of majority Given those predictable patterns and finally I think the more troubling part part of that is if it looks like Democrats are going to start to be in a permanent majority position. I don't think the Republican Party is going to say we should suddenly moderate. I think think the message that they will take away. We have to fight even harder and be even more aggressive. And that's when democracy will really be threatened. I mean I think that's already some from what we're seeing in the Republican Party now and it will just get worse and worse so I I don't. I don't see how the Republican Party is in a moderate when all of the moderates left the Republican Party. And there's nobody within the Republican Party coalition to say. Hey let's totally do a one eighty on the values values that we've been fighting for and be the party of of multiculturalism and immigration to compete with the Democrats so there are different methods of voting on in a lot of them are used in places as you know obscures main in Ireland. Give me your favorite ways that we could vote differently or maybe even structure how our legislation. You shouldn't works that would give rise to a multi-party democracy. Yeah so there are a lot of forms of proportional representation. Most advanced democracies have some form of portion of multi-party democracy The version that I recommend in the book is a is a version That is very similar to what they have in Ireland and what they have in Australia which is is a system of ranked choice voting And in the house. I would combine that with multi member districts. which would create a proportional system in the Senate? I think you'd have to keep the single winner elections Shinzo It also increased the size of the House and also get rid of congressional primaries and I think the combination of all those things together would would move us towards a multiparty democracy. You know look. I think the challenges that we're at a moment in which there are a lot of challenges broadly to to liberal liberal democracies throughout the Western world. There's backlash to the financial crisis and globalization. There's increasing divide between the cosmopolitan urban parts of the of of the countries that are doing well and engage in a global economy and the post industrial Rural exurban parts of the country that are increasingly left behind between younger anger and older generations and the question is which type of party system is most equipped to to resolve those issues and to me. The danger of the two party system is that it really is and amplifies those divisions in a way that becomes zero sum in binary and all or nothing. But do you think that are parties. Make US fractious or how fractious we are has given rise to these Very far apart sorted parties. Because because I worry that if there were this system with all these different parties and the most that anyone could wield is you know ten to fifteen percent we'll have a situation like Italy or or like Israel. Now you know just keep we keep forming governments. There's no continuity of power to some extent it is a feature not a bug that even though you might not have have the full support of the majority of the American people you are president and you have the power. We have a very strong presidency. Unlike a lot of other countries given our spot in the world unlike Italy I think it is to our benefit that we have a strong relatively strong executive well we could still have a a a reasonably strong executive in a multi-party system But I think the the danger is That in a two party system if neither party has the majority You're in this system of of endless gridlock. In the coalition's since get basically stuck the advantage in multi-party system is that yes sometimes you have to hold another election or it takes a while to build that coalition but then you can build a governing earning coalition and the coalition should be fluid because majorities are changing. And that's okay. The question is whether the legislation and the policy making is ultimately somewhat stable. And I think the danger of our of our bifurcated two party system that as the parties have pulled apart the policy goes from very you for right and then to the left to the to the right to the left and there's no stability as for the question of how divided we are. I mean certainly. America is is a divided nation But I think the the two party system is amplifying and and redefine those divides in a way that makes it very hard for us to resolve those debates because we've cast them so much in terms of all or nothing either. The Democrats ruler the Republicans rule but in a multi-party system. No single party has has the pretensions or the illusion that they will be the dominant majority and so they have to build coalitions. They have to compromise. That's just the name of the game and that's that's institutionalized in the system and I think that was how our politics operated in a in a different period which we had something much more like a multi-party democracy eighty within our two party system and finally the cover of the book breaking the two party doom loop has illustration of animals painted the red white and blue. And you got your donkey in your elephant but then there are three others in there. I suppose representing parties yet to be born. There is a wolf. Looks like a grizzly bear at the tiny tags and hind legs. And some sort of Puma. What do you imagine these if you're right fanfare parties? What would they be what? What's the Grizzly Bear Party? The Wolf Wolf Party in the Puma point now So in the final chapter of my book if people make it that far. I I do envision. A future scenario in which we do have a five-party party system and the five parties that I envision are on the left that there's a Social Democratic Party think Bernie Sanders. There's a moderate New Democratic Party Joe Biden And then on the right that's new. That's new Dell. I mean new judy. Yeah Ah okay. There's a new Democratic Party. Think think Pete Buddha judge there is a A REFORM REPO FOR RE. There is a reform Conservative Party. Think Think Marco Rubio. There is a Christian Free Market Party. Think Ted Cruz and then there's a Tucker Carlson. Well I'm the Church Tucker Carlson I I would. I would put him a little bit more in the in the final party. which is the Nationalist Populist Party Think Donald well trump or Tucker Carlson right and who gets who gets what animals though I ever do it. Who Do you think I duNNo? No No I. I'll give the bear to the To the to the Socialist Democrats give the the coyote to the to the to the Ted Cruz. Republicans look INS and And I'm not looking at the book. Well I think I think think the Puma forget the poem it would be actual trump. Yeah all right. She'll be actual trump.

"The following recording may contain explicit language. I can't get more explicit than may say it may It's Monday January thirteenth. Two Thousand Twenty from slated to the gist Mike. PESCA president trump went on the safe-space of Fox News to lay out what he said was the imminent threat from Qassim Sulejmani. I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies but Baghdad certainly would have been deleted but I think it would have been four embassy could have been military basis could have been a lot of other things too but it was eminent and then all of a sudden he was gone His Eminence the Donald Old speaks of imminence. And I suppose we must all acquiesce but the senators were given. The Intel briefing. Hadn't heard of this plan to attack four embassies other administration officials who explained the imminence of the attack had never cited four embassies and after careful questioning on. I can't three out of the five Sunday shows Secretary of Defense Mark Esper- admitted okay. There weren't literally four embassies per se. But you know we kind of felt like there. There were four embassies. It was that type situation so in a nutshell the president was lying or as they say when movies are based on a true story but then you find doubt that the main white guy protagonist and realize was an Asian beetle. He wasn't so much lying as conveying an emotional truth presidents. Lyle presidents lie all the time many times. The president will lie about a Casas Bell. I that means they lies into war. He certainly will lie to get him out of the accountability ability for war. We get it. It's all priced in. But it is notable that the secretary of defense ultimately did not back up his lie as per finally had had to admit it here he was on face the nation different what the president said was he believed that it could have been attack against additional embassies. I shared that view. I know other members of national security team showed up you. That's what I deployed. Thousands of American paratroopers to the Middle East to reinforce our embassy in Baghdad and other sites throughout the region probably and could could have been that is more like an assessment than a specific tangible threat with a decisive piece of intelligence. Will the president say there. It was a tangible. He didn't cite a specific piece of evidence. What he says he probably he believes independent one? I didn't see one with regard to four embassies. Maybe the president got the message about the four embassies from the leader of the boy scouts. Who called him to tell him? He was time's person of the year for his groundbreaking research into windmills causing cancer. Like I said all priced priced in trump's at over fifteen thousand lives or misleading claims according to the Washington Post and mark asper finally broke down and indicated that the embassy threat was misleading. How ever esber then went on to evoke an historical precedent which almost broke my brain? He he was asked. About Congressional oversight of military action against Iran military action that he just admitted was impart or has been justified defined by lies face. The nation host Margaret Brennan asked. Why can't Congress have this debate as the Beta news? Be Conscious of the messaging particularly to our troops because they are looking for messages. Do they have the support of the American people. While they are in harm's way why do I say that my predecessors have said that in the past and I had the personal experience it's in the one thousand nine hundred ninety one Gulf War. I was on the ground preparing for our final actions to go into Iraq. We watched very carefully the debate in Congress in mid-january that you're to find out. Did we have the support of the American people are lawmakers move course you carefully watch the debate and the vote in Congress. It literally decided if there would be a Gulf war what went on then a vote about the authorization of military force is what many in Congress want now. If esperer is saying saying that the reason that Congress should be wary of a debate now is that in one thousand nine hundred one. They had a debate and that the troops would have felt I. I don't know bad or sad if Congress didn't support them well guess what they wouldn't have felt bad or sad if they went into Iraq they just wouldn't have gone on into Iraq. The troops were waiting not for a pat on the back or thumbs up but they were waiting literally waiting for congressional authorization and if the vote had been. No there'd be no Gulf War was close two hundred fifty two one eighty three in the house. Fifty to forty seven in the Senate but Congress authorized and war. We did wage as S.. I was trying to figure it out the best I could come up with. Is that Esperance. Point was basically A. I'm a veteran. True was airborne and also be Congress. Congress shouldn't vote against wars and maybe in case they would vote against wars. We just shouldn't let them vote at all. I think that's what the point boil L. Down to it's not as bad as being caught in a lie. But since trump has done that fifteen thousand times and Esperer modes and methods of argumentation or new to us. I thought I I would. Highlight his reasoning as another piece of evidence that this might not be the Dream Team of the best people we had all been promised on the show. Today I should feel about a solution to so many of our representation problems the solution that's fallen out of favor but to me seems preferable to the Non Solution Shen of spasms of discontent which we now seem to have embraced but first one thing's for sure about politicians be they Democrat or Republican Republicans are worse. Well the current batch certainly seems to be the rally round the trump deny global warming thing dealbreakers for me. But what if you wanted to make the case. Okay Okay Okay but you know. Democrats aren't that much better. I happen to disagree. But maybe the problem isn't that these two parties are both bad or that one's good and one's is bad or that neither is good enough. Maybe the problem with the two parties is that there's only two of them political scientists Lee Druckman think so otherwise otherwise he wouldn't have written breaking the two party doom loop. Hi this is dial with week and I've got a quick message a really important initiative. We are launching here. It's late it's called. Who counts over the next thirteen months late?

"With the Oscars part of the show. We've got to get into some other celebrity news that happened because we can't just talk about the Oscars okay. There is so much more very very important stuff to get through first of all. GD Hadeed might serve on the jury for Harvey Weinstein's Steen's New York trial. How many times I have to tell you that? Twenty twenty is the wildest and weirdest year for Celebrity News. I mean it's it's getting weirder. Every single Goddamn Day gee-gee Hadeed was called in to potentially serve jury duty on the New York Harvey Weinstein case. Like Oh my God awed what this is truly wild. According to page six G G quote strolled into the Manhattan courtroom with one hundred and nineteen other perspective. Panelists analysts Monday on the fifth day of jury selection and quote so when she got called up to the stand in the jury box she said said that her name was Jill Lena deed which first of all that's news just by itself Galina. How did they not know? gee-gee deeds real name was J- Alina with a J.. Joe Lena like sounds like Justin and Selena like a ship name anyway. Jelena's Hadid took the stand and she said that she had met the defendant and had also met Salma Hayek. WHO's one of the people named in the case? She also said quote. I think I'm still able to keep an open. Mind on the facts. According to page six quote she was ordered to return next week to join other prescreened panelists from which twelve the jurors and six alternates will be selected and quote. This is wild. I thought they would dismiss gee-gee Hadeed like right away I. I didn't know famous famous. People were allowed to be on juries. This is so weird like I wish you could see me right now. My jaw is completely on the floor. Like my jaw is below the floor. Lastly what kind of show would this be if I did not talk about how Gwyneth Paltrow released candle over the weekend. That smells like her. Regina like literally the candle is on the goop website. And it's called this smells like my Vagina Candle. The website describes the candle as quote with a funny gorgeous sexy and beautifully. Unexpected sent. This candle is made with Geranium. CITRUSY Bergamot and Cedar absolutes juxtaposed with demoss grows and umbrella seed to put us in a mind fantasy seduction and a sophisticated warmth and quote dear God paper Mag says quote. The scent began as a joke while Gwyneth was working with heretic perfumer Douglas little to create a new fragrance. They were testing out sense and upon landing on the combination currently featured on the candle. Paltrow Rose said quote this smells like of China and quote. It's seventy five dollars. It's completely sold out. Trust me I know Oh because I would fully go into credit card debt in order to buy the candle that smells like when of Paltrow's vagina sadly hits doubt in day I will never know. I guess I'll never know what a career as a crazy day. I didn't even get to tell you about Dina Lohan getting a Dui. Jeffrey Star having a break up or Megan again markle's voiceover deal with Disney or brook shields is husband. Chris Hinchey taking his shirt off in the middle of New York City. God what a busy day.
