Joe Pesci Returns to Acting to Star Opposite Pete Davidson

"The Pete Davidson effect, oh, I should say the Kardashian effect has finally really happened to Pete Davidson. Because suddenly he's the greatest actor in the world. I don't know what to say, but only Pete Davidson could make gel Pesci return to acting. You know, Pesci has long since retired. He's always said, I'm not going to act anymore. It took so much for him to come back and do the Irish man with Scorsese and De Niro. They threw him a ton of money and he said, I'm not doing this again. But apparently he heard that Pete Davidson is in a movie called bupkis. Pete Davidson and Edie Falco are in a movie called babka. And I guess that's all Joe Pesci had to hear, he's back. It's a half hour live action comedy that tells a, it's called, it tells a heightened fictionalized version of Pete Davidson's life. I don't know what the deal is, but everything Pete Davidson seems to do is a version of his life.

Robert DeNiro to Play Two Separate Mafiosa in 'Wise Guys'

"But wise guys, this movie is going to make De Niro. It's a period of peace. He's going to tell the story of Vito Genovese and Frank Costello. Who are a pair of Italians running two separate crime families during the mid 20th century, Genovese tried and failed to assassinate Costello in 1957. But then, well, it's a great story. The in Costello got his revenge. And De Niro, you ready for this? Is playing both roles? What are we doing? I love De Niro. In my mind, he can play anything. I'd watch De Niro play an Uber driver. I don't care. He's the best, and I know he's done some roles in the last 20 years, which are embarrassing. You know, yeah, I have to remember. When actors get to a certain age and their grandpas or daddies, they tend to do things that their kids are grandkids want to see. So you can't get up there and ask too much. De Niro did a rock in bullwinkle. He knows it was a piece of shit, but he wanted his grandkid to see him in the movie, or hear him in a movie. You know, you can't. But De Niro's playing both these roles, Genovese and Costello. Nick pileggi has written this script pileggi wrote Goodfellas. He's the best in the business. And he wrote the book wise guy, but that's not what this movie is based on. Unfortunately, the producers Irwin Winkler, he's the fuck face who keeps squeezing Sylvester Stallone, and won't give him a percentage point of the rocky movies, so Winkler is producing this which sucks. Barry Levinson is the best. He'd made movies toys, bugsy, rain man, good morning, Vietnam, ten men, and diner among others. He also did the HBO Emmy nominated series, the survivor, he did two episodes of dope sick with Michael Keaton. This guy, I mean, look, you can't get better people. But De Niro playing both roles, I wonder what that's gonna look like, you know?

Rudy Giuliani: Watch the Film 'Taxi Driver'

"Because there you go. At the end at the end of my administration, I did a couple of retrospectives on the administration. So I would show the scenes and taxi driver of the assassin driving through Times Square. Those were real scenes shut in like 1970, whenever it was 76, 77, 78. This is Scorsese. Brilliant, I'm sorry. Scorsese film, obviously. But De Niro playing that's before we knew De Niro actually was crazy. If you did a good job of acting crazy well, you're looking at me, you're looking at me. So you look at those scenes, there are about four or 5 of them in which you get a big panorama of Times Square. And then you just put it against current ones. That would have been 98, 99, 2000. And one, you see drug dealers prostitutes horrible looking people frightening as hell, drug dens, houses of prostitution, the legitimate, if you call them legitimate pornographic movie theaters where you would pay just go in and watch a movie, had all disappeared. It was too dangerous for them. The movie theaters had turned into actual brothels. So even the porn industry didn't feel it was worth investing in the pornography had moved to other parts of the city because it was too dangerous to have it in Times Square. It had crime rates that were almost impossible to keep up because they would take bodies and hide them. And literally, literally, on one day during the middle of my campaign, we were driving somewhere. I told them to stop the car, I got out in the middle of the street and my campaign manager Peter powers thought I was nuts to traffic was going back to back and forth. And I said a little prayer, and I said, if I do one thing is mayor, I'm going to change this

Life Imitates Art With 'Wag the Dog'

"Everybody needs to go back and rent the 1997 classic movie wag the dog. In it Robert De Niro plays a political consultant who gets called in by a president who's been caught having sex with a campfire girl in The White House. So in order to the election is in two weeks, in order to distract people, they make up a fake war with Albania and then they film the war and they have Kirsten Dunst and they dress her up as a peasant running with a bag of Cheetos, but later they Photoshop it to be her doll. And they just, they manufacture this crisis out of thin air. That is exactly what they did with COVID. It's what they did with George Floyd. It's what they did with Jussie Smollett with Russia collusion, it's what they're doing now with the Ukraine and I guarantee you if that tragic war ends tomorrow, the very next day, we're going to learn that systemic racism lies behind putting things in alphabetical order. And that using alphabetical order is a continuation of slavery and it was invented by a slaveholders conspiracy and the Catholic Church is tied up in it and we all have to repent using alphabetical order. Now, you think I'm kidding. I just took that from a real headline that said that the Dewey decimal system is systemically racist.

We Thought he Got Lost in the Woods

"You go down to the woods today yes shaw for a big surprise especially feel the protagonist in tonight's story so nice of you to join me around the campfire again. You know how much. I enjoyed it when you come home. Cheers me up. No end to have company around fire. Wow tonight story is horrific tragic sad scared coming. Awesome story to go something like this. Tonight's story doesn't take place on the land by the area surrounding it c- he wasn't just the land. There was evil. It was the whole damn area. I feel disgusted with myself a writing. This and i've been writing for about three days trying to figure out the best way to convey the horror get laid off my chest. It was spring hand in the woods. Spring is very colorful and noisy. Everything's blooming killing you with allergies and all the animals shouting out. They once again. We had a few spring showers and the temperature was rather mild topping at around seventy eight for the whole season. Thomas was a seventeen year old boy. Who like most kids in my area liked to fish out of a big creek. Aptly named big creek at the center of the conglomeration of small towns big creek ground through the woods for about thirty or so miles and was almost white enough to be colder river. If you're familiar with the spring river it was about half as wide as that is widest point. I always imagined that if they hadn't code a big creek they would called it a little river anyway. Thomas was the best fisherman of his soul. He was older than my brother of whom i was young. But we all still hung out despite age. Differences thomas tommy loved the outdoors. You know the expression you can take out of the woods but you can't take the woods out of the man that was tommy in a nutshell as with most kids in this area. Tommy a dropped out of school about a year prior to help around the fall. Yeah this town was really backwards. But that didn't hinder friendship. In fact told me was one of our best friends. We'd met told me about a year after we moved to the land and initially i thought he was. An astle. affects meeting was well. It ended up in a bad way for me. And some unfortunate ambassador. I've always been able to see things. Glimpses uv bad things to come. I get this from my mother about that. And i meeting with tommy a two completely separate stories. The point is thomas was one of half assed friends. He and my brother went to school together for a few years until tom decided to drop pounds. I know calculus and chemistry and stuff. I'm educated without a diploma. He'd said one day as we met it out fishing spelt. My brother and i looked at him flabbergasted. So tommy drought and spent days working at his uncle's palm fishing with us camping. Modding of the dut roads on which we live. Tommy was always full of energy and was a very excitable pass. He had a passion for wildlife and woodland's and conservation which was something that threw me for a loop when he dropped out. He told us that his uncle was trying to repair. The damage is done that he needed help around the farm if they wanted to enjoy the simple things in life such as eating and having clean water his uncle was not a nice man in fact it was a miracle that tommy was even able to live with him as he'd been convicted of doing something very nasty with two floating. Niro girls back in eighty three was part about it as if it needed to be. Wise was the fact that they were his nieces. he'd been sent away until ninety five whereupon he was released on good behavior after that he just kind of melted into the woods. Living off an inheritance raising told me hated his uncle and his uncle hated tommy. Many with a nice wet thomas would just can put his favorite sites about a mile down from fishing sponsor. Tommy often told and showed us the signs of his abuse such as cigarette burns in the middle of his back missing teeth. Aw teeth that were broken. In half

Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money.

The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials.

"Goes way way back and was created in distant disparate places egypt rome india italy hungary. You name it. There are ancient roman coins that depict niro playing the bagpipes so while we can debate whether or not nero fiddled while rome burned hinging mostly on what the definition of fiddle is. It seems clear. He played the bagpipes. It's not clear when bagpipes made it to scotland. But we do know that at the time they had only a single drone. The pipe put makes the characteristic constant background note until the fifteen hundreds won a second drone was added and the last drone was added in the seventeen hundreds all of the chiefs of the highland clans employed pipers for both peacetime and war spurring their troops on victory until seventeen forty five bagpipes were linked to jacobite ism the movement that sought to remove james the second from the british throne and restore the catholic. Stuart kings the jacobites saw the bagpipes. As an icon of scottish national belonging and military pride while there are loyalist opponents saw it at best as a risible accessory for unflattering caricatures and at worse as an instrument of war carrying pipes was viewed the same as carrying a weapon. And a your command was tried for treason. The court declared quote no highland regiment data piper and therefore. His bagpipes in the eyes of the law was an instrument of author and sentenced him to death but john gibson author of traditional gaelic bag piping seventeen forty five to nineteen forty-five said it didn't happen that way the bagpipe man. Not the execution. That part happened. In fact the execution of the piper james reid might have to the muddling of the historical waters. Some of the confusion seems to stem from the disarming act of seventeen forty six which would get an amendment quote restraining. The use of highland dress this outlawed tartan plaid but didn't say anything about bagpipes. James reid may well have been piper. But that wasn't why he got the short drop and sudden stop he'd taken part in jacobite rebellion's and conviction had nothing to do with the disarming act so a case could be made that the seventeen forty five ban. Didn't actually happen. That makes that one line from braveheart. Goodbye plan outlawed. Choose twice as wrong. Since that set over four centuries earlier the bagpipes were verifiably band. In the nineteen forties in poland. Germans forbade the polls to play their pipes for a similar reason. Because of its ability to stir up nationalist spirit. Just think about that the next time you say it sounds like a bag of cats and a garbage disposal in fairness though you're not completely alone in your entirely wrong hatred of bagpipes in eighteen ninety seven. Belgium sent an expedition to antarctica with the intention of being the first party to over winter there even in modern antarctica with modern transportation. A lot of planning goes into keeping a crew alive. If you're in charge of the food you might have to plan out a years worth of meals and order your supplies eighteen months in advance. And that's today so imagine what it was like more than one hundred twenty years ago. Part of the plan of the rv gca that being the ship that they took was to hunt and eat penguins which would not only provide them with fat and protein but also vitamin c to ward off scurvy catching animals perfectly adapted to the harshest climate on earth turned out to be much easier than they thought. The supplies of the ship included a few musical instruments to maintain morale and whatnot. Apparently all you had to do was play the trumpet and the penguins would come right up to you when one man took out his banjo and played. It's a long way to tipperary a whole raft of penguins which is the collective noun gathered to listen. The reception was somewhat more critical for the bagpiper. The penguins fled in terror and plunged back into the sea tremendous tinkerer. Benjamin franklin had been so captivated by performances on musical glasses. Were you rub your fingers around the rim of glasses with different amounts of water in them to produce different notes. It was big in the eighteenth century and franklin wanted to see if he could make it even better. He saw that before each concert. The performer would tune the instrument by filling each glass with just the right amount of water. That sounds like a half. And if you watched miss congeniality by choice or because it was on in the waiting room you know that musical glasses are one of the few instruments that can be ruined by being mistaken for craft services in a letter written in seventeen sixty two to the italian scientist. Giambattista macharia franklin described a musical instrument. He had designed that made use of thirty-seven cups to help you.

"To say who has the right. Who has the final say that says atrushi gano a true latina through. Mcconnell is only someone that could speak spanish. You know and i don't think that's right. Man i mean who who who makes up these rules and and should we follow them. I personally think I don't think languages a pre prerequisite for being latino being chicano Being a brown man. What do you guys think well. That's a good topic to jump into because it's so true it's like the level of your of the your command of the spanish language this should not dictate whether or not near brown right so the big question is does speaking spanish. Make you any more brown than the next person. So i grew up speaking spanish. That was my first language you know and then but the other thing is also like with my father you know. I'm not saying that he's right or you know but It's just the way that it was that he's like Kind of he was one of those people that would hate it when a dark person a didn't speak spanish it and he's like i said i will not pollyanna frontier needs to buy new like it. Would it would. It would hurt them. You know like like lexus. Like one time we went to the beach and then after that that there was this this like these chillers. The man talking In english and everything like that. My dad's like like talking smack about him just because he was talking in english you. That was kind of weird like that. You know as it needs needs to get a He said he needs to get the house by like like. I don't know why you would bother him. Her whatever and then the man just to let my dad know that he didn't spanish. He's all like all a let or something like that. You know like the guy told him not even confrontational sort of put them in check in a night. Yeah exactly and so on. My dad's like not need a colonoscopy de niro and so it kinda like silence my dad now you know. Let let like like he. Did you know it was like that was my experience and i mean i'm not a like even when we're at at at the table like my dad. He didn't like me talking to my my siblings and sp in english in by noel. And it's like he always made us talk in in spanish like everything so that was my my experience I mean like. I said it. That's not how i feel. I mean it's like Because as i start as i started speaking more more english my spanish started You know I started seeing things wrong and stuff like that. You know so. Like so. Even when i went to mexico and i saw some of my cousins and they were like i'll say like a word like spanish or i'd say it wrong and then they'd they'd make fun of me. You know like a skit way. I'll go to assist you. Know he you know yes but you're trying to each other on. Who's the better spanish speaker. That's that's what that's what this episodes about. It's like why do we power trip over that stuff. Yeah man you know. That is a really good question. What what is this about. Power trip know or authenticating. You know you know and why you know why. Why is language such a important part of who we are. you know. Like like maya bringing is little bit different My mother is he. Gonna you know she was born in he comb. My father is gone. He was born in texas. But you know but all our families are from different. Parts of michael and i was born on the border town. You know on a border town so we spoke spanish. We can all speak english but we spoke spanish. That's was the star norm. You know especially right. They're living literally on la la frontera in this five miles away from the fence. And i remember it was like a hard core as a little child by man owes a hard corden nasa student. You know like little four year old five year old you know like totally proud of being brown and everything you know and and only wanting to speak spanish men you know and And because my mind english was such an ugly language you know such a detached language. You know there is no cutting no love in there. you know. And it wasn't until. I went to first grade at the americanization process began. I didn't know it at that time. But that's basically what it is you know. The american is ancient process of denying us. The our our right to speaks spanish.

Using Stories to Market Your Business with Amy Porterfield

"Hey is this happened in your business. Last month was a bad month so this month. We're going to run a sale. A big promotion. We're gonna email list and say by now because it. We gotta get some cash in the door. It's not really a marketing plan. You know what that's called. It's called spray and pray from the ramsey network. This is the entreleadership podcast where we help business. Leaders themselves their teams and the prophets. I'm your host daniel tardy and my guest today. is amy porterfield. She's a longtime friend of entreleadership. She's also an online marketing expert to helping entrepreneurs and small business owners win. Aim is going to share with you. Why you have to have a plan for your marketing and the good news is it doesn't have to be complicated in fact the foundation it simple because marketing starts with just telling people's stories so when you tell the story especially about somebody else that you served and you've helped when you tell the story right meaning you talk about the struggles and the challenges in the fears that they had the winds and what that meant for them and what they've overcome people can see themselves in those stories so much easier than you. Just saying i've got this great product. It has amazing benefits in features. You need it. That's one thing but also when you sell when you promote no matter how much your audience loves you. They put up a wall whether it be just a little while or really big wall. There's always a little defense up there and we're going to talk about it later. But i do webinars to sell my digital courses and on a webinar for the first forty five minutes you are giving giving giving and so when you do ask for them to buy your product. Their defenses are all the way up. Because you were giving and you were inviting them in in different ways in offering value so the same thing with the story when people see themselves in other people's stories and they can relate and resonate. They those defenses. Come down and they say i want a piece of that i if she could do it i can do it too and so i'm all about helping. People put their guard down. Because it's a natural thing to put it up especially when you're asking someone to spend money so i noticed you said when you tell the story right. Yeah what's the right way to tell the story. Well you had talked about donald miller when we were off camera and you had mentioned and you know that man is have learned so much from story brand in how he tells his story but if you can tell the story and somebody can literally put themselves in that story because they can relate to it. I feel as though the story is is doing the work it was meant to do. And so to me. You have to have all those important elements that donald miller talks about in terms of putting a story together in order for it to resonate and a lot of my students who are just getting started though one and tell the story but with a one tells i hope so and so get x. Results they were this way. I and now. They're this way now like there before and after and done. But when i when i think about telling a good story i want to talk about the richness of it and i have a student. Her name is niro. she lives in los angeles. She's a single mom of three. Her mom lives with her. She was a not making barely any money as a baker and she knew she wanted a different life for her kids and she was working two jobs. One like chucky cheese and one baking out of her kitchen but then she realized how to create a digital course and she created her first digital course to create caramel candy apples. Who would have thought that a caramel candy apple. Digital course how to do it would be a huge success but she made over sixty thousand dollars on her first launch and then she did it again had the same success and when i asked her deniro what does this mean for you and she said all i wanna do is retire. My mom she cleans houses. She's she supported me. She is an amazing support to our family. I want to help her retire when when she told me that like my heart. Don't been but when i tell that story i don't just say how much deniro made in. What digital course she created. But i talk about what it means to her. And i think people can relate to that part of the story more than anything Yeah i mean just as you tell that story. I think everybody's going whoa caramel apples. And how could either something similar and caramel apples. That i'm going to sell an what did you do again. What did you teach on that web and like it just it pulls you win when you tell a story like that. So what What keeps us from telling the stories you know. I think we probably cognitively most business owners that have been around for a few years. Understand the power of story to some degree. I i know some of a struggle with feeling like we're wasting our audiences time or were belaboring things or it's not worth it. Why do we hesitate when it comes to this powerful mechanism you know. I can totally relate. When i first started telling stories. I would rush through him so quickly because i thought i was wasting. My audience is time like they wanted me to get to get to the point. And i i often Surround myself with a great storyteller. Because i love a good story and if you really think about your let's say you're out with some friends you're sitting around a fire and you all are just having a good time in someone tells a story and the when they add more detail when they add more layers to it when they really pull you in. You're like tell me more i'm here. I'm fully there. So you love that when they add the details and they really bring it to life. So why would it be any different. When you're telling your audience these really rich stories versus rushing to the punch line. It's the same kind of feeling they get on a webinar or had a campfire. And so i realized i needed to slow down so i did the exact thing that most of my students do they want to rush through it because they think they should and so. That's one thing another part in and this is gonna sound silly. And i've never really talked about this but we had to make it a practice in our business to get the stories like if we didn't have a process in the company to get these stories in the most richest way possible with all the details. I wouldn't be able to tell the stories so backup a little bit. We put a process in place where people can send us in their wins their results their satisfaction with our product and then we reach out to them on zoom and Someone on my team will do an interview and just ask them tons of questions and record it and transcribe it and then we kind of bring it into a story while my team then gives me all the details of that story so what my point was going to be is that i had to practice these stories if i want to add layers and richness to a story on a webinar or in a facebook. Live or on a podcast. I need a practice at a little meaning. I can't look at a bunch of bullets until the story. Well

Obviously if you know anything about the movie. It's it's a family movie. It's made to be watched with with kids and stuff like that, and therefore is on a different level in that realm as a family movie. It wasn't that bad but the reason that occurred with the reason it's a turn. It's awful is because I don't WanNa see Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken in a fucking family movie I just. Talk. This is. The hotel. Mike Nixon Tears Tearing crying because I watched it. Can't even begin. Craft. Fuck it. Costs this much pain and So I don't recommend it like give it one out of ten. It was it was just fucking awful and predictable and everything you thought it was gonna be an oh, an anti-war narrative weaved in between the whole thing So. Anything. The only thing worse than family movie is a Preachy family movie doesn't matter what the messages and just don't want to just don't want it. So. He said good. So you're going to have to watch the movie then find out for yourself. No. We'd look on that.

"You to go to his movie. And so he doesn't espousing anti trump politics because he came to understand. Unlike dummy, DeNiro That's a lot of the people loved gangster movies are conservative. Right? He didn't He couldn't figure that out. She magic from the West Village. But he started. But what's his name? De Niro stopped bashing Trump just about after Three Irishmen came out. Did you know the cord? The concordance of that one Jim, And the reason is is the Irishman is about the worst gangster movie ever made in the history of the world. And it probably bombed on Netflix. And then someone probably sat him down and said, Listen. Hey! Nero. You're a big guy. You got the noble restaurant. Shame, which is in the toilet now. Because you wouldn't shut your mouth and you didn't figure out that 50% of the customers are more are conservatives with a bashing trump. So the Japanese guy probably said shut your mouth will throw you out on disparagement clause. Okay, so they he still wouldn't stop. But now in the Irishman comes out, maybe it bombed and he stopped bashing Trump. I don't know, but I haven't heard him bashing lately. Maybe I missed a call. White say why you're wasting valuable time not talking about Donald Trump. Why? You're not saying Trump is the most brilliant man in the history of the world, including Jesus Christ, Moses Abraham, Isaac. And Mohamed Why you blatantly stupid. He's a punk dog He's appeared off is a con artist who doesn't know what he's talking about. Doesn't do his own work. Doesn't care thinks he's society doesn't pay his taxes. Colin Powell said it best. He's a national disaster. He's an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country has gotten to this point that not only are we got, but we haven't heard that. Since the the Irishman bombed That movie was like 17 hours long. It should have been 40 minutes. You know the paint of the house painter? You know, even Nancy Pelosi referred to the House painter. I didn't like that. It scared me a little bit. She threw it out. It's someone she said. What will get you a house painter? Oh, I didn't like that one at all. Remember that That was a frightening statement. Moo. Forget about I mean, she's a low get you a house paint. You know what that's about. Meaning your house painted way shot someone their blood shuttle over the walls. Right? C calls of a house painter. Why would Pelosi Saito the one of the people is in like in politics will get you a house painter to come over. Oh, Forget that scared me, but I didn't like that one. But I'll do a lock down on that one. Here we are. Also, I got distracted a little bit. Why Trump is leading among Hispanics. They'll have a second out of work in politics, Jim My mind is very distracted today. It always happens around religious holidays with me, my my, my soul. Is extremely spiritually. And what happens is the soul takes over my mind around these heavy holidays and already like from a couple of days ago, my mind starts to be moving towards the eternal moving towards the religious Moving towards the bigger questions. And what happens is you mixed together the two and you wind up Like when water you know, water comes in and out in a tide is changing. Give us see what happens when a tide is changing how the water changes form near the shore. One current Jos on the other currents over and one to the left. That's what I am right now. So if it doesn't seem like a regular broadcaster, I'm not gonna apologize. I'm a regular broadcaster. And I'm working in a land together for you in my own. John Coltrane way. And if you don't like jazz, then you're listening to the wrong show. If you prefer Mantovani Music Guy Lombardo music and they're pretty good. You got plenty of those. You know, I may be the only man in conservative talk radio enjoys doing radio. I'm seriously you know, I'm going to compare myself that everyone else without mentioning names..

I am not in a logical I'm in a parallel article mood right now. It's a strange day. I'm not thinking in a straight line. I don't want to talk about Trump. I don't want to talk about my book. I fight for America. Go buy it already. Leave me alone. Just go in the store. If you don't like it, I'll tell you what. I won't give you money back. Give it give it to a liberal. It's a great book. It's probably my best nonfiction book, but I'm not going to read from it. I'm not going to talk about it. We had the end on the Drudge Report. I've done five Newsmax shows is something every other night. Another Newsmax show, Sean Spicer, Crystal said. A wonderful guys. Great guys are doing a great thing on the network. But I don't want to talk about my book any more. I wrote it if I wrote a book, and it took me here. Do you think I want to talk about it now for two months? No, no, I do not think this is the problem with writing books to begin with. I got to tell you. This is a very experienced author and best selling author. From the time you conceive a book. Until you write that book and then added your book and make sure it's right. And then months till the publisher from he gets it until she puts it out with the cover and the pictures and That you have done it without. You know, wanting second movie. You may want to watch it again. You think Robert De Niro watches the Irishman over and over again? And by the way, whatever happened to him? Did you notice? This is an interesting phenomenon. I never mentioned it to you Might my dear audience. Remember in the beginning of the year. How are in the era? Would you shut his big trap about Trump? Every name under the sun is a mochi is a bum. He's a mutt. He wouldn't shut up. Remember he was crazy, and everyone who liked him started anyone on our side. Who liked him. Hated him wouldn't watch anything with him. If I see any movie within my click through it, because he's a great actor, but I'm miserable, horrible human being and a fanatical, insane leftist You know, Take an example. The other guy Al Pacino. I'm sure his liberal politics are strong is the Nero's They're all the same. You're all cut from the same spumoni. I'm sure he's a leftist, but he never every smart enough. The Nero's much I'm sorry. What's his name? Pacino? I can't remember. The E knows the bee knows that he knows the Renos. Pacino, De Niro, What is everyone's name and then a value in Italy. How did that happen? A e I o every attempt You told Jim Hi, Jim Verity. I'm not disparaging Italian people. Everyone's name ends in a vowel. How is that? Like a juice. Recent Europe It's like Schwartz. That's a Z. It's no like a thing that you really like all their names end in a constant, It doesn't work that way. Schwartz. Hilda Berg. That's a G G A Z Berg Schwartzes at Ze Ji, but you can't put them together in a love you can lump together the vowels. The Nero. Cappuccino, right, but Pacino's, but the point is, I don't get distracted. Pacino probably has the same leftist politics, but he's smart enough to know he's a public figure. To the movies, and he wants you to go to his movie. And so he doesn't espousing anti trump politics because he came to understand. Unlike dummy, DeNiro That's a lot of the people loved gangster movies are conservative..

CEO, of Ev West. A company that builds and Converts Electric Cars down. In San, Diego area they have done some really cool streetcars. They've done some really cool race cars. They've raised pikes peak and pretty soon, they are going to Bonneville with their newest project. So here to talk about it on the zoom the CEO of e West Michael Bream. On small tar podcast. I've already done it. I've done it in the in the on awkwardness my own home. How are Ya antastic? You'd see. Yeah. What's I mean you know Since we last talked there's been quite a lot of development in the world of Evil Hot Rod. You can buy E v Crate Motors. Now I mean you know what a world right? I mean, it comes in a crate or why don't you tell me if you bought one of these things I mean GM brought that that electric crate And I took some kind of interest in it didn't you? Yeah, we did. We actually have easy west parts in there and cooled I. Think you know the reality is, is they try to make off in sound simple and Bolton but it's it's quite difficult and a lot of these guys are kind of in the space to get attention Yamaha motors recently of did something like that they're putting out a crate motor and we called Yamaha and they're like, no, it's not. It's really. Out there. Actually openly admitted like. Fishing there we just threatened the pond. This is such bullshit because you know often I, hear from people who want me to comment on the fact that. The new cafe standards are impossible to it's like, do you know how easy it is to say that we're going to go full ev by twenty thirty and then roll that Shit back in twenty twenty five when no one even remembers and your long. In Our news. Cycle. Say Anything and the news cycle is so short that by the time you walk it back later once it's clearly impossible just nobody gives a shit. The Craig's is GonNa Have Bluetooth work on blockchain. Put bitcoin right that yeah, it's it's interesting Matt I was just thinking about that the other day like if somebody could do like a best hits real and just go back through like GM announcements and I mean I feel like we've been told like three or four times from every automaker, they're having an electric truck or this out of the other thing and here it is twenty, twenty and Where are they right? Well, A-. Onto, something right isn't it we're really is a reinvite we're gonNA see Arena I mean that's a good point. You cannot buy not buy it and they don't have a fan I love Ribian. Let me tell you I love her the and I think got the best shot of anyone but they don't even have a factory built yet. Do you think they have a better shot of building a truck than than Tesla does? Want to die. Early And then into politics. Ev Crate Motors but it's important. To note the building an electric truck or a heavy duty vehicles, extremely difficult and extremely expensive, and so This isn't a model three or a key Niro or whatever they're trying market. They're trying to bring up a full size truck and compete with you know the Ford F, one, fifty, soul Arado, etc. that is You know no small task of the and again we're talking about essentially start up companies to this date haven't produced anything and I think Riviera's far far far ahead of everyone but you look at companies like Nikola and some of the other companies that are essentially trying to get her capital off of computer enters

But she didn't make it to number one for some reason because I played that song my honest face a lot to my my favorite song. is by is overnight by Maggie. Garages which I mean. This song was number one but like my top ten songs of the year. It's just full of Maghera just like her album is just incredible just unbelievable. I have a Maggie Roger Story here which is also really funny that that I just realized on Friday so on Friday I was listening because I keep playlists of like my favorite songs of the year and Friday. I was listening to love you for a long time by Maggie. Rogers and I thought I really love this song. I need to look up Maggie Rogers and see what other stuff she's got because maybe I should listen to other stuff from her and I found I off one of my favorite things that happens in the extreme music era where I'm picking up songs here and there. Just based on their appearances and various playlist is I discover later not that they're related to somebody from Youtube. Although sometimes does that happens. But I discovered later that I've actually liked several of this person's songs but didn't know it was the same person and that's always a great sign like after the fact it's like Oh this person's music really works for you. You should explore them further and that's happened to a bunch of artists and I found with Maggie Rogers that in addition to love you for a long time. She had the song light on which which was also in the platelets. Because I really like that song. At which point I finally read up on her history and discovered that that viral video where she plays Song Alaska for Ferrall L.

She's she's pretty young Around folk music and she was like a man Joe Player and then she comes to Nyu and is In their creative arts program basically their music program. The Club Davis the school and you can hear her folk music background and her in in her music but but it's modern music like she. She is synthesizing this classic kind of folk music and then taking it to a completely different place. which is that's what makes somebody a great musical artists so yeah it was great that I saw her in your list here because I was digging being in on her on Friday because I like a lot of like the topless is also delineated by vampire? Weekend's most recent album which I absolutely loved it features Daniel Daniel hyme from the Japan high. Yeah so one of my favorites like she's on three or four of the songs. I didn't know that out because I like album is like an absolute return to form for vampire. We can't far for the bride. Is the name of the album. That was my most listen to album of the year. It's funny how time works. It's like most of the songs are Maggie Rogers. But I'm listened to the album that there might. They were my two favorite albums of last last year I also loved full Salaam toodle cinema club. There's more recommendations for you want them much L. asks. Do you use multiple volumes in urinetown in town Mac boot disk one for system of documents or whatever you just use one big volume and other any pros and cons to wo- method of the other after reading about I forget who it was now Somebody's approach to photos. I actually have have finally embraced a PF S and so. I have well first off one for system one for documents. Catalina means that you have half of volume for system like Catalina enforces that you have a volume for system. It's called the name of Your Volume Space Dash Space System. I think correct. That's that's everybody gets that now in Catalina but I also have an API volume called photos that has a mccollum size and the idea here. Is that all these volumes share space. You don't have to like commit ten gigs over here. And then so you don't get that taken gigs. Anywhere else they all share space which is great but you can enforce a quota and what that means is. I've got my photo library set to only download what it needs. It's not sinking the whole library because it won't fit on my SSD and those but as downloading what it needs. It's waiting until it gets to a certain percentage before it starts deleting stuff so it will fill up a lot of your drive before it will start deleting stuff and the tip that I got from somebody who I can't remember. Now sorry about. That is is mega photos volume give it a quota a maximum size it can be and then when it reaches near ten percent of that it. It'll it'll start deleting files and it won't expand to fill all the space on your hard drive and so I am doing that and that's the first time I've done something like that but that's it I don't I don't do a lot of partitions I generally just kind of want everything in one place. Yeah I don't I don't do anything like that. I just I feel like I would start to lose track of where everything thing was being kept and then it would just become more of a problem I would say that now with. APS This is a great time to do that. If you're a kind of person who wants to do these partitions because they don't steal steal the space and that's huge right again you don't WanNa have This oh God. Why did I make that partition fifty gigabytes? Because I me I really could use another thirty gigabytes now in its over there. It's empty but I'm over here like AP faster that doesn't happen so It's much more kind of free but yeah I never did because I I. I don't even more places to look for stuff and in the end it's one logical volume so it doesn't it's literally one disc so it kind of doesn't matter but with the photos thing I'm trying that and that's actually pretty cool. All right. Final question today comes from Brian. Do you use your left. modifier keys or right modifier McKee's more often and do you think a lines of your general handedness Bryan Bryan Bryan on twitter. This is a good question and I have a little bit of a weird answer to. I discovered that I always used the left command key. Always I never use the right command key. A A write command key the right control. Somebody's talking because there was a keyboard back to keyboards. There was a keyboard that didn't what was it was they had moved. Oh it was. There was a keyboard that Had A little tiny command kier control key and they had moved at like one was only on one side and not the other and I realized the first moment I use this keyboard board. I can't use this keyboard because this keyboard prioritizes this right command key or control key or whatever and not the left one and everything I do eh. Somebody pointed out in this twitter thread. All the good stuff like command command queue command. A those are all over there on the left side of the keyboard anyway and if I want to print something my left thumb goes down on the command key and my right index finger. Middle Finger goes on the P.. I do not switch to the right command key and and then with my right hand do command i. I can't explain it. I can't explain anything about how I type. I'm a self taught typist. I type fast but I don't type conventionally I just pot lot myself it's not a system you learn system I made up and I can't explain the the command key other than maybe it goes back to when I had an apple two and there was like the open apple key in the closed apple key and they were different. I don't know the answer is my left thumb. Does it all so I was trying to pay attention to what I'm doing. And the only the only real patents headland is the I used the left Camman key most often the reason I think I do. This is because most of the shortcuts cuts that. I want to use command for a located on the left side of the keyboard. Yeah so like come on come on the world the good ones are yeah right so like. I'm used to doing that and I use the right shift key the most because I love the time when I'm using shift I'm selecting things and the Eric from the right hand side so they're the only you too. I've noticed that like I was using those consistently in that way. I I use the shift on the on the left side. Most of the time. I think there are times times. If I'm like capitalizing a letter on the left side. Maybe I use the right shift but for the most like using Arrow keys to select stuff. I don't use like a finger of my right hand to hold down shift while I also use my right hand for the Eric. I do not do that. I I'm using the right hand for the Eric in the left hand for the shift key this is Shirley there have been like a graduate student theses written on on keyboarding methods right where they just photographed people using their keyboards and come up with like what the different populations are. You're about that but it's a great question Brian. Because it's it's super weird right. It's and I don't think it has to do with left handed or right handed because I'm right handed in your left handed and we both use the left command key so I when I saw this question I was like. That's a silly question Brian. Nobody does that and then like paid attention to I was like oh I do. I have ways that I worked so great question Bryan Bryan Hamilton.

"Record your voice and the other person's voice on separate tracks you can export them later and that's great because if you're recording your voice and the other person's voice at at the same time you can lay those down in your editing you know in garage band or logic or ferriter wherever you want and then you get your friends file and you lying your friends file up so it's exactly making making the sounds at exactly the same time as the one that you recorded on your computer you can visibly see it. And then you've got that reference so the reference track whether it's just one person or multiple people the reference track is the most important thing you can do it three to one clap kind of thing but I don't think you need to and the other tip I'll use is when you're lining up tracks to get them to match if you don't have a reference track People start recording at all sorts of times but they tend to all end end recording at the same time so lineup the end. Nice not the beginning. But that's that's the way and then there are sink you can do. And if there's drift in the recording where they're lined lined up the beginning and then by the end off by a little bit you just Kinda snipping slide. It a little bit halfway through and get it to be. Could it be close but the short version is just have a reference track and and line up your files to that and my additional tip is don't just line up wants because oreo drift so the the audio can get out of sync again later on depending on how long you record. So keep the skype reference track in your audio project. And as you're editing through make sure that it's continuing into match you might need to adjust it a little bit here. This is something that you and I do differently. I don't keep the track in there but what I do is after I landed up at the beginning to the end. And here it's lined up and if it's not not lined up what I'll do is I'll I'll go through. Maybe every fifteen or thirty minutes. I'll split the clip and lineup backup and then move ahead and then split it again and line it back. Backup and deal with the drift that way. But once I got it where I feel like everybody's matching the reference track. I delete the reference track. Because I don't want to deal with it like I don't want to account for either way. I keep the reason I keep. The reference strike is in case. I mess up something in the ETA and get out sink myself which I have done many times and then it keeps it in there so I can then get back can sink again but it doesn't matter however you had your way but you want. That's the way that you do it. That's the way that we make sure that we line things up is that we keep the reference track plus. It's good to have in case something goes wrong with somebody's audio. And then you also have skype recording. Gary wants to know what was your top song from in two thousand nineteen and your apple music replay. Okay so I I went and looked at this and my number one song was a song called honest face by inhaler which is a fun. One Song I sent. I do not know I sent it to a bunch of my friends. Who like you to so like John Syracuse and Merlin. And I said Whoa these. These guys sound like they've listened to those early you two albums as much as we have only yesterday in preparation for this podcast. Did I look up. Who Inhaler inhaler is and was amused to know that this band? That sounds a lot like early. You to their lead singer is GonNa son so so sure. He's heard a lot of U.. Two Bono.

"There comes a time in every person's life when they must make walk of the travel. Sorry the travel travel the to the CORTEX. Texans they got to me so it's like a couple of questions through a tax and and then some follow up was sent to me and now I am like deep into mechanical keyboard land so I currently own to mechanical keyboards. I own a w keyboard which I really it was the first on ninety four and I learned a lot like I learned that what switch. I'll I collect Cherry Brown switches switches. Because they're still got some cloudiness but it's not a lot for us. It's like the least amount of force to apply so it doesn't really calls me any strain my hands right because like you know you can. You can really go for it. Plus I don't want it to be too loud. I just like a little noise. I liked the WWL keyboard. Because you could basically customize every single key to the the college that you wanted and I got like wild colors but I've bought a keyboard without Erica's I wasn't really paying attention. I didn't really think about it. I hate that I love the keyboard. And it's possible to use our CA. You can hold down a little function key and use like I think it's like the I J K and l I think it's like instead of the Arrow keys on the keyboard which is fine but it just doesn't work properly alive for me but I do love that keyboard then. I bought an architect's keyboard which is a split mechanical keyboards splits in half which is like the keyboard that I use on my Mac all the time. which is the micro sculpt right like it has the split in the middle which it feels good to me? Yep and the Organ Keyboard is really Nice. But I'm I'm really trying to get used to it because a lot of the keys unprinted and you're supposed to assign you could use like this web tool and then you have to like plug it into your computer and thank you flash the firmware. He was signed. What you want the keys to do which is fine? Because you can kind of customize it the way that you want but I can then not remember all the kids do which is a problem of of its own and there's ways to fix that like buying different key caps right to replace the blank keys. He's good but then I'm into the key cap world right where now I'm like. Where do you buy key? CAPS SEAL of key caps. I really liked the look of but then there are these group by things and it's like the sold out or six months and it's like a whole thing and then you and then I asked you what keeps your using and you'll using the key Krung Keyboard Auden now I'm looking at those and they look really interesting and they have a kickstarter campaign coming up for a new one that they're making. I am like deep into this mechanical. Oh keyboards are just like a great thing to follow on Instagram. Like I follow a turn of just like these companies making tiny keyboards and and Luke. It's just like beautiful. I is somebody the reason this got to me is someone said this is probably would satiate Mike. In the way that pens does and it's very similar. It looked like the type of pens that I buy like. You can get exactly what you want and you can have the main certain ways and they will nice colorful in the ways that you want like. It's that's where I am. Yeah YEP YEP so. I've been there I've been where you are The like part of the exploration figuring out what you like and what you don't like so like I got a I got a W.. AFDC keyboard and because they do let you order custom aston key caps sets. You can order your keyboard with custom key caps but you can also just like get custom printed key caps and they are they are good and they have like you can build your own key layout Out in illustrator and then put it in there and they will print them out and they will send them to. You said that you spend a lot of money on that stuff. And that's fun. Although what I learned. Is that at the keyboard that from them that I bought. It's got the It's got its wider. Because it's got the Eric in the home and then keys and they're off to the side. Yeah and I. This is why I say it's important to learn what you like because I've learned. I don't like that. I want a much narrower keyboard than that so I don't use that keyboard at all essentially at this point but I do use that that keyboard till I told you about and actually I've been using a couple of them the the key Krahn Ketu I think. And there's another one that I've been using that's very similar and you know so that that's your first step right. It is like you said Oh. This little keyboard is really great. And then you've got and you're like Oh there's no Arrow keys and I've had people send me keyboards. This looks great. You'll love this and I look at it and like no Eric dealbreaker and the only you can use a modifier keys like nope. nope I learned this about myself that I am not there. So you're getting there right you part of this journey for you is learning what not to do with your keyboard. Do you have anything else you've learned from from that journey or or is Do we know about the Iraqis. Darach as is the main thing that I've learned and my love is you be remains. I Love I think it's amazing. I just have my keyboard up. A bunch of weird wild colors. Architects has that and I just. It's just fun. I just like the fun of it right like to look down at my keyboard. Sometimes it's like there's a rainbow there. It's like oh how lovely like I like that kind of young and I've also learned that like this is fun little thing because I can end up really ultimately. What I want to do is is built a keyboard able because like you can really go with this and I think that would be a fun thing to aim towards one day like getting all the parts and building one and that it's like a whole different thing right but I I am enjoying going down this rabbit hole? So I'm basically saying this like up gradients. If you have things that you you think I should be looking at in the custom keyboard. Well Mechanical Keyboard World. Please tweet the Matt me because I would like to see them. So the keyboard that I like is the vortex race three which I wrote about which is similar it's got real cherry switches whereas the key Krahn GATOR on off switches. They don't feel quite as good but they're good my other recommendation. So W. Ast is great because you can get them to make anything for you I recommend read the Mechanical Keyboards. Ah there's stuff in there. That is good. I recommend a master up mechanical keyboards. It that's one of the group by things but there our key sets that come up on there. That are really great if they match the keyboard that you're using and so I think I keep an eye on that and I've ordered a couple of things for master up in Mechanical Keyboards Ebay. Believe it or not. There's a Lotta mechanical keyboard stuff on Ebay. I've been trying to find it. There's a really good store on Ebay but I can't find its name right now that that sells a bunch of different keyboard layouts stuff and their storefront is on E. Bay but I can't find their name right now but if you search for whatever kind of things you're looking for you will find a lot of key caps and stuff you search. I found a lot on as well. Yeah just I didn't buy anything. Bushels like pocus especially if you're looking for custom key caps. There are a lot of custom key caps on on Ebay and and then yeah instagram. As as mentioned by Joe Steel in the chat room there are a bunch of keyboard companies that are on instagram. So you fellow pit. My keyboard which I've ordered from and Joe Linked to original co on on instagram. So there's there's a bunch you can fall down deep deep deep down that rabbit hole if you want to I. I'm not looking for keyboards right. Now I'm I've got to really good keyboards that basically that I love I will probably at some point here feel that pull of like could I get another color set. replace the key caps. Because that's fun. I think I I was reading on my ipad this week with with the vortex race three. Which is why I actually couldn't find that that Chord I was trying to find like my USB to micro usb Eh to hook this because it's not a blue keyboards just a wired keyboard? And I couldn't find one. I finally found an adapter and I use that instead. It feels great though. It's a really great keyboard and it looks great But and I like key caps better than the the ones on the the key Krahn which of course immediately makes me think maybe I could get sukey caps for the key Krahn and then it's like been. Don't do that to yourself. But maybe we'll see just looking at stuff now. I really early life. This is all for me. This is Josh Topolski's fault because he tweeted out a picture of this micro keyboard that he had with this amazing weird yellowy old school lay out and I was like what is that. And here's the rabbit hole enjoy. That was the end for me. That was that was the result is that I got a keyboard that I really like. So you know..

"I want to release this office. Will you please let me leave this office. This and they're just like ignoring me understand. What's happening like I want to give you the money? Then you're looking for it's very. It's very confusing to me. That's that's kind of where I am right now. Like I had this whole plan of like doing a bunch of stuff to Redo the office but now I'm in a little bit of limbo but there are things that I still want to do so I spoke about it last time right like I want to make my second desk more of a fixed ipad right you know so. I'm still looking at stuff like that. I'm still trying to work out myself. I actually WanNa talk about keyboards. What's in a minute because that's kind of a place where I am? My Life Right now is look. We've we've all been part of their life but I'm also at the same time still looking for just general inspiration as I've been we again. We spoke about this when we were together. I've been working out of that office now for three years and it was put together in a way. That is very different to how it's used now initial conception your you build your office just as I don't my office sort of speculatively saying what. What would I do if I had this office? And then you use it for three four or five years and you're like okay. This is not quite what I I made. I made some guesses somewhere right and somewhere wrong. It's not quite how I work now. And then you have to. And that's what my kind of project has been about is is making some revisions getting a new desk. That was a I thought buying that relatively cheap very small sit stand desk was a good idea at the time and I guess it was was but having sat at it for five years. My it's not the right desk for me so yeah you still happy with the desperate you have no I love it. I mean it's the because it's the it's like. The re reclaimed claimed Hardwood Desktop and this one's got multiple settings so that it remembers like my standing position in my sitting position and stuff which the other one did not. It's a yeah it's really nice and because of the size it actually. I can talk more stuff underneath the desk. And so I can do talking about cable management like I can attach attach actually at one point have have given some thought to. I bought the drive. I bought a Samsung. SSD I've given some thought to pudding like velcro growing the drive under the desktop as my backup drive as super-duper clone Dr Although since my Mac is visa mounted I can actually just. There's a little space in the visa amount where the drive goes like. I don't even need to attach it just kind of sits there and it's completely invisible to me and it's just directly attached to the MAC. I I just stuck my Samsung. SSD drive the use of my time machine But with velcro onto the back of the neck pro I I agree but I thought about putting stuff under the desk and I do have like I said I have a hub under there i. I bought a a metal shelf for my My USB audio interface. And so. I don't even see it anymore. It's down there and I it's accessible but like it's it's not on my table anymore and I may do that with a mute switch at some point to and just like China clear some of the junk off the desk but I am. I'm happy with a desk. I have by the way I have Two points of additional follow up one is USB followup. I guess this is fallout. There's been this there's a bug happening catalina. And none of us have been able to put down. Casey has talked about it on. ATP A little bit And I've seen it too where something's going on and I think it's USB. I don't think think it's actually Bluetooth. USB The Bluetooth is on the USB bus stop bus headed for Dungle town no buses driving away from downtown uncle town and it's on fire. I bought a a new. DVD drive to us to do like I back up my hi. DVD's and put them on a public server which is great because then I don't have to fish out the DVD. And Blu Ray to watch something I can just Kinda like. It's very easy then to put it it on my TV using the apple. TV APP or even side. Load it to my IPAD and take a trip whatever so I bought a new one of those and So I was at a point where I was ripping blu-ray Doing a podcast. So there's a usb audio interface there and super-duper launched and was that new Samsung. SSD S. T.. It was doing a clone backup to my SSD those are all those are all US tasks. Right and my USB the audio interface started cutting out my track pads started getting jumpy because it wasn't plugged in and then I plugged it in and it was. It was okay after that my but my bluetooth mode track that was getting jumpy. The the ripping procedure on the BLU ray disc failed. Oh and I thought what is happening here and then I stopped the super duper clone and ejected and unplugged drive and I turned off the blu-ray drive and I- unplugged and replugged the USB audio interface. And then I didn't have any problems and I thought to myself something. There's a bug here somewhere because I did not say this at some high something is happening where the USB bus is getting overloaded by something. I is unable to prioritize all of these things. And and it has dropouts and the droughts can result in dropped audio from a USB interface or a drop that leads to a failure from Emma blu-ray drive or jittery potentially it's related to jittery input from from keyboards and mice. And and I think it's all because of that backup that was that was going on so this is similar to what Casey is saying. I if somebody from out apple apple out there who knows about stuff like I'd love to know more about this or tell you more about it but USB was broken can in what was it Sierra maybe or high Sierra there was a release of Os ten a few years ago where a USB was really broken and we all kind of like couldn't move our podcast cast machines do it because it became really unreliable. And it's very slowly got more reliable but something happened with Catalina and it's back to to being kind of not reliable at least under load so that's a real. Bummer 'cause that puts back a lot of my ideas about chaining things for USB and doing a local local direct super duper backup instead of just using the network. And you know because I have to not have my USB audio interface podcasts. Be unreliable like can't recording podcasts. Win Any other. USB devices are attached is not a great look so so I have that update. So Casey. If you're out there you're not alone and and my other. Update is a power outage update. Since we're talking about my office does yeah. I can understand now a little bit more forgotten about the rolling power out. That's one of the reasons you probably a thinking so much about. UPS or maybe a little bit more sensitive to it because you've lived the life of multiple. He has a three day three day out the ups going to protect you from three day outage but it will at least give you a little bit of battery to finish at least will make you. This whole thing will make you think about power a little bit more right exactly so after the outages we looked into doing rooftop solar with battery backup because with with that on a Sunny Day You could basically the power could go out for a few days and you could still have power in your house which would be great but you also have other additional benefits for that right like Powell bill cheaper per exactly using more renewable energy. There are lots of benefits for solar losing power. For three days was the impetus to be like okay. We should really do this. And then I looked into it and it turns out. We have please do not send advice by the way. I'll just say that. Now 'cause I know I'm GONNA get advice from people who don't know all the all the all the details about vessel but here's the thing. I have a twenty plus year old roof which doesn't leak which is great however technically that roof is getting toward the end of its life and everybody I talked to about solar said. Well you really have to replace the roof if you're going to do solar because otherwise the group's going to fail and you're going to have to de install all of your panels and then reinstall them on the new roof and that's no good so we really advised that you know you need a relatively tilly. Recent Bruce with a fresh roof. Yeah so because the damage is way worse when you if you have panel guess what that takes a project. That was already really going to be expensive. When we've got a child in college and another one going to college soon and said at take that number that you are already wincing at and thinking you might not be able to afford but you could probably grit your way through it now at twenty thousand dollars to it? At least and at that point I was like no. I'm not going to do that so so. The rooftop atop solar is off. Make me after I have to replace my roof. I'll think about it again but I had a moment where I thought. Okay it's inconvenient to have power for a few days but when I think about a project that would cost I mean a lot. Let's just say a lot of money. All told versus finding ways ways to make the pain of an occasional outage less painful and then just re buying the groceries that spoiled in the refrigerator. It's like I can't can't really justify it that way there are reasons to get solar But in the end because of our particular circumstance I just don't think we can afford the scale of it having going to replace the roof and then do solar and then get the battery. It's a lot so I'm the moment I made that decision of like we're not going to do that And that all that money that we were going to spend is not being spent I was like oh I can spend a small amount of money on a few things to make life a little easier if we do get outage so the first thing I did was I actually bought this thing called power bank which is like giant ups. I bought one from goals zero. I bought the Yeti one thousand. It's you plug it in and it's a giant battery charges and then when the power goes out you can use it not to. You can't run a giant appliance on it but there are certain things in our house that we could run off of this thing and they also sell a a solar panel that charges it in twenty hours or something like that so it would be all explore because you can get a second panel panel for it and then charge a faster and all of that but So I'm going to. I'm going to buy that. I just bought that. So we'll have more power available to us in a giant battery to get us through like a very low level with some of the stuff in our house and that's a that's a start and I'll look into some other stuff too. I'm not sure I really WANNA you buy gas generator because For lots of reasons like having to have a gas can and oil and it's noisy and smelly and like I I'd rather not go down that route but but anyway all that stuff is Kinda back open just because I'm not going to spend fifty or sixty thousand dollars at least on a solar project because I you don't have that money to spend. I'm not going to do that so instead I just bought a giant database of batteries. Come into my house Mike. Lots of batteries all the great critical by keyboards. Let's do it..

'cause you know the search through the rat king of cables or just buy a new one and him is on it so sad to do like I know I have this cable but I can't find it so I'm just going to buy another one. That's a bad idea. So I'm I've reached that step now where I'm trying to pull the stuff out and I found a bunch of old stuff in a box. I literally had box that I filled with stuff from my desk ascot. ID G. Five years ago brought home and never opened that. I opened last week so I found a lot of really great old stuff. I was sending a bunch of pictures to Stephen Hackett of. Like you get a Lotta this you look at these two Newton's that I have looked at this cd-rom got all sorts of just wild old stuff that's is in there But I have to figure out like what of that is salvageable and one of that should I dump and so I'm in the cluttering process. There's also a lot of stuff. The garage is also are sort of storage room for the rest of the house. So there's a bunch of stuff that needs to go to the The goodwill or or to the dump depending or the electronics recycling so. I'm I'm in midstream on that. Which means that my office is much messier than I would like? But I have made a bunch of changes I mentioned on this show as part of our ongoing conversation with ATP about lighting and Marco's many many lights that he has that I was feeling it that on on particular dark winter days. It's not sunny today so it's great but on dark winter days and nights That my one floor lamp in here is not quite enough and and I was debating what to do. Get another floor lamp Get some some other lamp that I could like shoot onto the wall so that the Orange Wall is sort of like lit up that that would be nice and I ended up and I think I like it and I think I'm GonNa keep it is I had a hue. Light Strip. Phillips Hewlett stripped the little led strip lighting meeting. And I put it on the frame of my window so like shining up toward the ceiling and also against the wall and this is the my wallet I painted Orange and I kinda liked it I I left it there for a while and I kind of liked it so I bought some extensions of that and now it's on the the top and the bottom of that window frame just stuck on the on the window frame and that's pretty good so I don't think it means I don't have a floor lamp cluttering that part of my office that I have to keep moving out of the way to go anywhere. It's just attack on the wall so I think I'm GonNa go with that and that gives me that extra little kinda hit of of light especially especially in in dark times when I need a little bit more brightness And it shows Orange Wall which makes me happy and that's a smart thing so I can put it on. I've got a smart switch at the doorway is actually a smart light switch. That's actually turning on my floor lamp. which is plugged into one of those little smart outlets and so now I have wired up so that I can turn turn that on I can turn on the the the Hue Lights on the wall so you know I? I'm doing that. I have some video lights us. What I'm doing? You know what I'm shooting videos. Those are doing livestream of of something and I actually ordered some more mounts to mount more of them up on the ceiling because the great thing about having those lights on the ceiling is that they're not not somewhere else on the floor like they're out of the way there's no tripod there's no there's none of that and and it's a great place to store those lights and then I can just either on smart switches so I can just turn on whenever I am recording. So I'm doing a bunch of that kind of stuff and like John Syracuse. I prepared the way but I'm I'm not getting a MAC pro. I just bought a new UNINTERRUPTIBLE power supply because after the power outages this fall and also hearing John and Stephen Hackett talking about getting these tower. UPS as they looked like tower computer. Almost all my ups. I've got two are like big fat thick power strips strips and I thought Oh actually that is exactly what I what I want and need for this right where where my computer is plugged in. So I haven't I have one of those now to a big. UPS in the best thing about it is that it's got a silence button on it so when the power goes out and I need to use it in order for my lamp to work. I won't have beeping coming to me endlessly from the garage like I did in October. These ups is like I get it but I don't know if I want massive thing right like big computer in other. My desk seems like Soma among minus sitting against the wall right. It's not under my desk and I've got I've got a whole. That's another thing I did is. I've got a bunch of cable organization that I've been doing where I've got. I'm trying to tie the cables together and reduce the number actually bought a new like a USB three hub so that I can extend I can run one USB cable down off the desk and then have a bunch of stuff plugged in kind of stuck under the desk including the one that runs to the to the ups so that It can talk to the UPS. CBS and and then it extends. I've got a little thing. That goes all the way toward the wall and then there is where the ups is so. I don't see it but this this. UPS is tall and not wide. Like the other one is so. It's actually kind of less intrusive and if your power goes out your computer doesn't die. Which is nice I had these cyber power our CPA fifteen hundred PFC LCD CPAP fifteen hundred CPF up like that? Look at that nothing. Wow Yeah it seems like so much. How much how? How long would do you know how long you would lost plugged into this thing? I don't know I don't know we could find out but not right now. No I don't want to do it. Turns out only twenty seconds. Yeah and you have it. I mean because I understood how this works but you have it set up do you have it set up that it can talk to Mac. Os Yes so. People don't know this I think but these. UPS has have USB on them and they they often come with like windows software and some of them have backed downloads. But I'm always very skeptical. You don't actually need software special software on the Mac for these things if you plugged them mm invite USB and go to the Energy Saver Pane in system preferences there's a ups thing and you can configure it to like you know the your Mac knows when it's on. UPS knows what the battery status at the UPS is like like a laptop battery. It's aware of all of that and you can say you know after five minutes on the ups shut down or or if the ups only has five minutes left shut down or if the UPS reaches ten percent of its battery shutdown you can. You can do all of that stuff from right with insistent preferences. You don't need any special software to do that. It looks really cool that kind of stuff but I see I want. I wanted to hear all of this from you today because I'm just like I'm I mean such office limbo right now Jason. Because I wanted to so much I want to do to my office but also at the same time I want an office outside of my home. But she's like a whole range of big thing right so I'm looking at because we live in a two bedroom apartment And you know if life goes the way that we want over the next two years I need to give that room up and so on and so like real limbo like what to do. We don't have enough room. We don't have a garage. We live in an apartment clam looking kind of foreign office outside of home. which is like it's holding me back from making too many significant changes to my Home Office? I want to Redo the whole thing and then rip it all out again but there are. There are little things I can do that. I can also take with me right right like if I get an office outside of my home right like if I buy. UPS can still take that with sure. But yeah so I. I'm in a little bit of limbo myself right now which is just like what's the challenge and you've got to think about the expenses of Of An office versus the expenses and inconvenience of doing something like selling your place and buying a place with another room right which you could do but it's not radically inconvenient right. That is obviously something that we will want to do at some point Lives right but we don't. We don't want to even think about moving for another two or three. Yes yes so. You're in limbo. You know. We have like like our mortgages in contract fix extol contractors. You don't want to break it then you lose your rights all that. I recommend that you go work in a big glass cube bad for audio. Yes yes big little bit little bit little bit bad bad variety of that is true. You gotta worry about the Audio because the problem I've had is like trying to find wind office space where we live is very very difficult prize. I I have also have like particular needs account. What can shed office right like I could find a desk in a shed super easy but Kennel find private offices very at a friend who ended up working? There was a law firm that that had rented out a a building and they had extra offices and he ended up working. There basically sublet an office inside so like before there was we work there was. Hey we have an extra office. Does somebody WANNA use this and you know. That's I don't know if that what would be your best bet or just see blizzard and like I found an office and that I've even gone to see it and thought it was really great but the leading company is not responding to my emails. I want to release this office. Will you please let me leave this office. This and they're just like ignoring me understand. What's happening like I want to give you.

"Because we had these conversations about how how the movie industry is like. Well I don't know about Netflix. Like mature we change. The rules remembered Steven Spielberg's like change. The rules of Netflix. Can't be nominated. You know what happened next. They got twenty four nominations. So yeah we also fill at this point Spielberg like look. WHO's welcoming Netflix? You can't ignore them anymore. Like when they were new movies from up and coming directors rexes. You can try and use your clout to ignore people. But when Scorsese's making a movie which is nominated for best picture and it comes from net flicks you have to ignore. It's coming from now because the establishment is now moving in the streaming services. So there's nothing you can do about it right like I feel like I'm sure to to your point about the CPAC Martin Scorcese making these movies. I think there's an argument. I we may have made it at the time when Spielberg was complaining about this like there's an argument to be made that given the kind of movies that get put in theaters these days. There's a whole class of movies like these mid level movies and more prestige movies. That don't get much time in theaters. And so I think Netflix and Amazon and apple and whoever else is funding stuff for their streaming services like movies are getting made and seen that would otherwise otherwise not get made and seen that. Adam Sandler movies on Netflix. Millions of people watching strong counter-argument. Well well you know what I'm saying. If that's what people enjoy if they WANNA see let them see it but people would see those movies in those numbers if they were in cinema. So this is the line for people to be saying. I WANNA see uncut gems though right like the Adam Sandler movie where he's the jewelry dealer. Okay that looks interesting. Looks like an interesting movie. We've we've taken this way further than we expected. Let's take a break. We'll come back and do more upstream. What about that Jason? Okay all right. Today's episode is brought to you by hollow hollow make insanely Stanley comfortable. Buckwheat pillows try buckwheat pillow is very different to regular fluffy pillows because it really supports your head and neck in a way that no other pillow can. It doesn't doesn't collapse under the weight of your head like traditional pillows because it's filled with water. Cool Buckwheat Hulls this like. It's almost feels to me kind of being baggy like like But it's it stays cool and dry unlike feather or foam pillows. There's no want for humidity gets contained within them. You don't have to flip to the cool outside of pillow. It's always cool and also you can adjust a pillow to be the exact size that you want because you can remove an ad the filling very easily the people have been sleeping on buckwheat pillows two years and popular all over the world I'm in a hotel right now. I do not have my pillow and I miss it greatly. I Ah I use one pillow home right my Hulo pillow when I'm travelling like two or three to give me the kind of support that I want. I absolutely love my pillow. Oh and I miss it whenever I'm not sleeping on it. Hollow pillows are made in the USA. We've quality construction. Materials to certified. Organic case is concern for durability and and buckwheat we is growing in the US as well you may be curious to try one of these right now. You should be in you can if you want to. You can sleep for sixty nights and then if.

"Upstream ladies and gentlemen now live from Beverly Hills. It's stream hosted by Mike. Hollywood would hurley did. That's a very good intro for for upstream and it's not a joke. I am sitting right now. Located in Beverly Hills high in the hills of Beverly Hills. Dell's is where I am right now. Jason and I wanted to say that it's very funny driving around here. This kind of part of Beverly Hills L. A. These kinds of areas. He is because there are billboards for TV. Shows everywhere they are everywhere like every billboarded television show. And that is I mean. Yeah I know you see advertising for this type of stuff in big cities but it is it feels very different hair. Feels much more like a press count. It's a company town. It's an industry. Oh Oh yeah I mean. We drove past like the Fox lot and stuff like that century city so like we were driven for their. And we've seen some of that stuff. It's in a taxi but what what I like is a lot of the billboards at the moment. Say for your consideration. Yes it's funny appealing to the academy. Come on Academy St Awards. Yes so speaking of which you got to be in Beverly Hills in in Hollywood. Let's say more or less four this morning as we record this academy award nominations did you. ooh reporting live. I don't know did you get me. Nominations yourself don't wait and see. They told me they call me. So I'm waiting on that bad news. The ones for this year already out. So you're GONNA have to wait at least one more year for your Oscar nomination. Okay walking on it but Netflix so net flicks as as you would assume a leading the academy award nominations because they produce the most movies have all of the streaming companies that we work that we talk about right like Amazon on Apple. They have some but Netflix really and especially in two thousand nineteen really pushed with movies original movie content. They have ten nominations for the Irishman and marriage story as well received a bunch and these are the two movies I think that of occupied the vast majority of of the water cooler conversation right like I feel like I've seen a lot of people talking about these. I've only seen the Irishman which I I am predisposed to love this movie movie because I Martin Scorsese's movies are among my very favorite movies of old time especially when they feature Deniro Peci all all right? I like that. They are absolutely my favorites. And so I. I actually really enjoyed the Irishman. It is not it is not good fells like Google fellas. It is not right but is a very very good movie the Special Effects In that movie whether doing of aging. It's really impressive. But I still can't help but not all the time sure because I'm aware of the truth and so I find it distracting. Still even though this was like you could fool me and there are points. Why was definitely fooled watching this movie thinking that like? Oh this is Joe Patchy now. But no. This is Joe Pesci where he would've fifteen years ago like it is is very very impressive. This is the most impressive of that. Technology uses technology that I've seen but I still can't help but be aware of it. You know what I mean. Yeah Yeah yeah no I get it. That's always that's always the debate with the aging and with virtual characters. Like I was just listening over the weekend to the flop house guys were on or Elliott Kaelin anyway was on star wars minute a couple of months ago when they were talking about rogue one and they were talking about the Peter cushing double that they use. There's great debate of like if people people don't know you may you may not notice you may let it go by you and then other people know and and once you know you kind of can't not see it but it's but it doesn't necessarily mean that it it might be on us for looking forward or for being so aware L. is definitely that. I'm aware I'm aware if I'd never seen this actor before I would know whether they had been maybe aged down or whatever but instead I know exactly what these actors look like at various phases of their life. And it's it's a challenge. Can I ask you about this. Actually because there's also really interesting is called like in conversation on that flex. This is like a twenty five minute. DVD extra basically of Pacino Patchy de Niro and Scorsese sitting down and talking about the movie and they talk about this technology a lot and they touch on the idea of you know like if we didn't have this technology we wouldn't be able to do this movie and we'd have to have somebody younger come in and we'd have to teach them to be like us and like like to act like us that doesn't work the same way and I kind of wonder what is your this is maybe a little bit of a hot button issue at an. What is your general feeling? This type of technology dislike de aging technology. Do you think that it is like holding back younger actors because my kind of failing on on this is like I understand that argument. Where like Oh if you're using all this technology to make people younger or older you are holding back the rolls from other people all but my fa- I understand that but I feel like these days? There are more opportunities for more movies and has ever been before but right. It's like it's a bit of a weird. It is like a weird thing. That's happening right now but I don't know if it's necessarily having that negative effect so two things one is I feel like the history of film from the very beginning is about pushing technology to tell stories in different ways because they talk about like oh we could just use makeup. Yeah there's some great like people should follow todd. Disease Twitter he posts out some great stuff. There's a video of like how they did this. Shot in a silent movie in the twenty S. I think where there's like a mirror and I mean it is four hundred plus years movies have been about fakery fakery in order to tell the story they wanna tell so. I think it's funny when people are like. Oh there's too much of this. CGI or too much of this de aging happening now like I want to see it the way first off. You don't a lot of it. You don't even know like I want to see this movie. That doesn't use it that that that's really great. It's like that movie totally uses it to you. You just don't know because you're not looking for it again to get back to like if you don't know to look for it. You may not even notice that it's there but also it's the history of film that they do this. There is no the point where you could legitimately draw a line and say well this far but no further. I think that this is just how it is. They're always trying some of it. Works of a dozen the tech keeps getting better and then we find something new to complain about because the thing that we used to complain about is now so good that we all just kind of take it for granted. So that's one thing and the other thing. Is You talk about opportunity for other the opportunities for younger actors because of Technology and I it actually makes me chuckle a little bit because the truth is Hollywood is famous for discarding older people. Because does everybody needs to say I would say there's plenty of opportunity for young beautiful people and more opportunity for other. Yeah no I mean seriously now I do. I do have those moments where I was reading articles about the Irishman. I was thinking I'm not like maybe you do WanNa do more body doubles maybe we. This is something that that people learn over time is that the the you can D- Age people but you can't age old man body you could have this conversation. Sation Deniro. Can't bend like he used to. They were saying like there were times when they had to stop like Scorsese's up you know like Bob Bob. You are supposed to be twenty years younger. You need to mark down. These says more quickly like it seems to be quite difficult for them as they had to push themselves physically more than they normally Hollywood. Yeah because there are times where they have to act like they're forty five not seven so maybe they end up with more. Maybe these are all lessons that are learned in that in the end. They're like okay. We're GONNA do this scene with a body double and face replacement and we're GONNA do this scene where you're just standing there where we're just GONNA use you entirely in the age you and you know those are all as weird as that sounds. Those are all tools. Those are all paintbrushes in the tool. Kit of the artist They're all colors of the pallet. Whatever metaphor you want to use they are all tools that can be used to make the final result? Look right and maybe they learned over time that some of the physical acting of of older actors who need to be aged need to be some of the physical acting needs to be done by a body double instead. They'll figure it out but I'm not worried about Hollywood discarding young pretty actors them not anyway getting back to the and I lost my buddy and Klaus Klaus who have nominated for each of the five I think. Nominations for best animated feature or net flicks animated features. Yeah I didn't get nominated by the way wolf. Yeah watched Klaus of the holidays. It's a cute movie. The animation is beautiful but and the story the stories. and IT'S A. It's a funny little movie. It's actually pretty good actually like it's for an for an animated feature which includes no property heard of before right like I actually. I think he did a good job of creating something pretty pretty original. I'M GONNA give my endorsement by the way in this category for a movie called missing link which a lot of people missed which is A. It's actually a stop Motion Ocean animation movie. So it's in the style of like art men but it's not it's actually the guy who did what was his previous movie power Nolan and Caroline core line. Yeah Sharon Para Norman. which is if you have kids you know about paranormal anyway but missing link really good really good? It's like it's a movie about a SASQUATCH WHO's adorable it's great so Netflix has the most nominations. That's that's interesting you've been listening to US talk about an upstream you probably. They are not surprised. This was inevitable really another angle that you may have not been surprised by because you've been listening to us is one of the nominees is American Eric and factory. And that's notable essentially that's the academy inviting Barack and Michelle Obama to the Oscars because that's the literally the first release higher higher ground productions to Netflix as part of their deal with net flicks and it got nominated for best doc. This will miss me. I had no idea that this often even begun like I was white into here about the fact that they had things on the way. I've not heard anything about this All so yeah yeah you go. And and congratulations nations Amazon Studios got one nomination. Headache gotten on the nation though. What did they get donation for Ms Rob I think again?

"Beer? Oh my well. This is a very targeted question. Isn't it so you'll the man you're the man with the answer. Those who don't know I. It's a long story that I I am. I don't enjoy at all but at the advice of my doctor. I have been told to not heavily my diet anymore. It's a lot lot a lot. I don't even want to get into it. People ask me. Do you feel better because it's been like seven months now that I don't know that's the problem. I have no symptoms but they told me that I'm allergic to it. So okay great. Just stop drinking regular beer. Start drinking beer. Brewed with weird weird weird grains and. I have tried a bunch of different ones. Although a lot of people on twitter were suggesting ones that are not available in California. which doesn't really help me? I'll travel but something I did find. That was available in California. Actually comes from. Canada comes from Montreal. It is the hilariously named Gluten Berg Brewery. I would drink this bid because the name is so good. It's it's great now these little pint cans with with the kind of German writing on Bloomberg anyway the Bloomberg Stout Stout is my favorite style of beer and The Gluten Bird Stout is good. It's not great. It's not nearly as good as some of my favorites doubts back when I have Gluten but it's good and they have a a ghost which is a kind of a light beer with sort of citrusy things in it. That's great like legit legitimately great like I would drink that Whether or not I had a gluten thing because it's really good and and so that's those are the two that that I think are my favorites. I have tried others And I will share you. Share a little bit of Trivia about this. Which is I've gotten a lot of people say saying saying have you tried these beers where they brew them? Normally and then they use this clarifying enzyme that removes the gluten from them which Like omission does that and the stone gluten free beer does that and the answer is technically. Those aren't gluten free. They have gluten in them. They are very low in gluten because of the enzyme but there are still traces of gluten. And if you're somebody who's just sort of like on a diet you can you can do that but if you're somebody who is supposed to have zero gluten in in their diet you you can't drink those beers it's not. They're not really gluten free. You need to drink a beer. That's not brewed with weed or barley. I guess that it's the same as it's like. Non Alcoholic Beer right this still like a tiny amount of alcohol left because you can only remove so much and I don't know what the rules are for that or whether whether it's like it's an acceptable level or not but since this is technically an allergy. You're you're not supposed to increase the you know I don't like it's not good for me to just have like a little bit of peanuts in the same way for me to have lots. Don't eat peanuts what we do with this peanut beverage. It is we make it with peanuts. And then we have a chemical that removes most of the peanuts. I am not going to have that going to draw the line right there and I have been drinking taking a lot in terms of alcohol anyway. I can drink wine and I've been drinking more cider but just to get my alcohol side as good as Leisa. That's a great options for sure. Yeah but but I don't WANNA give up your entirely so anyway. There's your Gluten Free Beer Talk I endorse Gutenberg. Thank you Canada. Thank you everything we back. If you would like to send in the Hashtag Snow told question. James did to send out a tweet with the Hash Tag. Snow talk and it may be included in a future episode of a couple of quick will one follow up say say about. I ordered one of the bridge pro plus keyboards. I owed ran for my eleven inch. Nah I believe I should get it within the next few weeks. I think. Messiah Chipping in February now. So yeah. That's the one that I conceive myself more frequently using the track pat because my lodger IPAD. I I do tend to use just the home so I use it as I spoke about last week. We've like a mouse in a stand but my eleven inch. I treat more like a laptop right right like my travel IPAD. One that I would take with me when I go work anywhere or I'm traveling anywhere so I can imagine wanting integrate attract pat more there But yeah so I ordered the eleven inch model all right interesting. I have hopefully a review unit coming off the assembly line. I I only used the prototype types. So I'm curious to see what they what they tweet because the prototypes you know. They're not quite right. The firmware not quite right and the and the even like the tension in the in the in in the mounting clips and stuff is not always quite right. So I'm looking forward to seeing. What a fully functional bridge is like at sometime soon? I don't know I wouldn't mind reviewing it it from my logical unknown. Sure it's great when they send you stuff. Yeah Avin pretty good about that stuff though in the past. But I'm really excited about it because I As I said last week I've really proponent for the even the mouse support in its current form and features that are lacking. And I know that like yourself. I think that it's that great but like I really value it now so with like to have that option. More readily available. Oh to me so I'm really excited. I mentioned you in my not by name in my macworld story. I think last week where I where I said that I wanted apple. It was sort of King King off of what we talked about last week. The idea that the mouse support should be better. But there's a lot you can do and then and then it might lead to apple potentially doing something more than the smart keyboard for the IPAD pro. If you could do better touch support you could or a pointing device support. You could then put a pointer a controller of some sort on a smart keyboard and that would be better for apple but one of the things I mentioned in passing is. There's lots of different kinds of accessibility and I mentioned you not by name and just said there's somebody I know who has You know like our SL issues and You know having pointing device for that person so they don't have to reach up and touch the screen. That's that's like a legitimate reason to do this kind of thing so you're you have a perfectly legitimate use of it whereas for me. I feel like when I try to use the the mattress I feel like I'm doing more harm to my arms then. Good everybody's body is different. Yeah Yeah and it's like you know if I use a mouse was who long and I can call me trouble to rotate my input methods. And that's why I really like having this is an option all right so do some upstream testings upstream ladies and gentlemen now live from Beverly Hills. It's stream hosted by Mike.

"Problem is I don't I don't know so this is funny absence loses power she find give me a hand it's this latter transformation we want to talk about today of de Niro and Pesci and I'll put you know to who plays murdered teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa in the Irishman new technology has developed a D. age the septuagenarian actors on screen and we're joined now by the man who headed the team that did it follow hell man is an Oscar nominated visual effects supervisor at industrial light and magic the studio founded by George Lucas and he joins us now from member station KQED in San Francisco hi there hi how are you I'm great this is an extraordinary bit of technology and you know we've gotten so used to seeing actors made younger on screen but with make up in C. GI can you explain for the lay person what you did main reason the main difference is that we did not use any markers on the actor's face hello this Yu GI green dots right markers yeah yeah something like that and that was explicit requests from Bob deniro and Marty Scorsese so while he email me this script overnight and overnight I read it because when Marty sensors grip you you don't just leave it in your inbox now as I read it over nine in the morning I said young man it was the Irishman and he said do you know of be careful what you wish for because Bob deniro is now going to wonder where in you markers on his face helmet cam with little cameras in front of them and this is how usually this is done right with C. GI yeah if you think about four years ago everybody was doing that and even myself and the way it works is with cameras yes we had to develop the so for first of all if you know how markers in your face then we need to work with whatever's left and whatever is left these basically lighting and textures of the actor who was in from the camera not to do that we came up with it Rick that has three cameras then the SO four takes a look at all that information and make sense out of that and he creates the three D. feature or whatever is in front of I mean there are limits to the technology the right the younger Robert deniro the Irishman does not look like the younger junior of say good fellas his face is wider right well I think that he has a lot to do with the design of the characters you see Marty's cruises you didn't want to rewind thirty years and see Jim Conway form of trials he wanted to design a character that was a younger version of Frank Sheeran and when you see him first on the screen you then say all while he doesn't look like deer hunter Norman right or a taxi driver he looks like the character that he's being portray Frank Sheeran obviously when you're trying a new technology and you're doing it on such a marquee film I must've been pretty nerve wracking really sure was going to work he yes I cannot well the thing about it is I've been an island for twenty four years and been doing visual effects of thirty and I remember talking to I don't know if you know Dennis Muren but he he has eight Oscars and visual effects and his office is right next to mine and I am and he's been a great mentor in so I brought the script to him nice and looking out a couple weeks back you know just making Robert deniro and Al Pacino and Joe Pesci of thirty years younger and for three and a half hours he he says don't do it and so I said well do you remember when you did Jurassic Park he just kept quiet and said yeah you're right we should do this what was the hardest thing well I mean we knew that the whole purpose of doing this was to get the technology away from the actors natural thing no markers if you know how markers in everyone of your pores and your imperfections in your you know skin becomes a marker she now send you have thousands of markers so now you start getting things so you couldn't get before like mouth if you read time we say if one of the consonant everything reverberates and you can't really tell what it is but if you don't have to you for you to feel the difference is between you know smile on a wins his very very small and how Bob deniro goes from smiled into the sound is what makes him who he is so the behavior a likeness of him has to be called by the computer or else he hasn't looked like himself and what you're describing is a technology that's only going to get better and better which I think brings up some ethical issues because as a technology gets more seamless and common place in those like Mrs that you've just described get more subtle could we end up doing away with the actual act all together I mean could come to a point where studio owns the digital image of an actor just uses that instead of the real thing and things are getting their performance has to come from somewhere and that has to be the actor and so just think about what it'll take for a computer to do with Robert De Niro deaths do you need to train the computer right do those kinds of things and basically if you think about the behavior likeness of somebody how do you become yourself you become yourself by the living you know by having a bunch of experiences and then you also have all the connections are made in your face the way you smile all the cultural things that you live so if you if you want a computer to act like Robert deniro you need to train the computer like Robert De Niro and then you spend a lifetime basically during in the computer for that you might as well just use rubber than there are you know but one now Robert De Niro be living forever because I also read criticism the set of factors are made forever young it just keeps the studios using their bankable stars over and over again and perhaps sort of impeding the way for the next Robert deniro I think you have to be careful which you could do because the just because you could then this to mean that you should do and number one the other thing about it is that you have to be careful about why you're doing what you're doing and whether your service in the story or not now I understand that the actors need this truth you know that they're all looking for and I'm more than willing to give it to them because you know why because that means that the.
