"nora ephron" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman
"This is ridiculous. I called my sister who was my sort of constant confidant, and she's the costar of the book. And I interrupted yet another fabulous meal. She was having with all of her fabulous Friends. I said that said I'm done. I'm done. And she said, you remember Mary Poppins. It was a movie that we had watched on VHS tape so many times as a kid that we warped the tape. And she started singing it. And she's an opera singer. And my sister said, you need a list. You need to make a Mary Poppins list. And maybe just like in the movie, Mary Poppins appears the next day, maybe mister perfect will appear the next day. And at that point, I'd had some way to add some wine in me. I'd had a few cigarettes and I thought that's brilliant. That's exactly the right. That's perfect. That's what I should do. And I sat down and I started writing and writing and writing and pretty soon I had three pages of extremely granular, extremely detailed requirements for anybody that I would go out with. Very specific details. Extremely. He could not like the musical cats. I take umbrage with this, but that's another interview on another day. This is all there's some context. The previous relationship that I was in the guy, the guy listened to cats on full blast, nonstop. And also I had to accompany a bunch of people in high school for like music contests and they all wanted the same memories. And all of this is described hysterically in the book for those that are listening. Haven't yet read it. Yeah, I had like you could like musicals, but only certain musicals. And if you liked cats at all, then that was a deal breaker for me. Now, you also wanted your perfect partner to weigh 20 pounds more than you at any given time. So my question is, if you gain or lose weight, they have to gain or lose weight with you. That was sort of the plan. But okay, so for people who don't know me or haven't read the book, they're like, who is this crazy lady? And why did she make such a ridiculous list? So Mary bob and Liz, these things were specific and granular, but they actually are emblematic of bigger issues, right? I don't want somebody who's either such a fitness not that they're looking their nose down at me or they're slovenly and have terrible habits and they're going to not help me along in my journey. So the context behind this giant list of things was when you sign on to a dating site, they ask you questions like, are you a cat person or are you dog person? I'm not looking for a pen pal, right? I'm looking for a husband. That question is superficial. So instead, how can we get to a point where the data is not superficial, the data is extremely specific and meaningful. And that's really what the list was about. But of the 72 attributes, the list only included about 12 qualities that I could see were really about a person's essence. Most were a lot were behavioral, physical. And I was thinking as your grandmother might and wondering where love and chemistry and spontaneity might fit into this. I am not a spontaneous person. So I guess for me and my grandmother, that would not have been that big of an issue. So here's the deal. I had been proposed to twice before this fateful night of the list making happened. And in both cases, I had met these men in interesting and unique situations and they were great stories. Hollywood stories. How good stories I met this guy in an airport. We'd both missed our flight. We were in Tokyo. We had missed our connecting flight. We were both trying to get back to Chicago. I thought the guy was Japanese. I started talking to him in Japanese and very polite Japanese. It turns out he was American. I felt like an idiot. But that started us talking, we chatted a little bit more. It turns out he wound up quoting a story that I had written news week back to me. And then I quoted Nora Ephron and said, you just quoted me back to me. And then I was embarrassed but it turns out he loved that movie. It was just like this amazing beginning and by the time that we got to Chicago, it was so late that the only people left in the airport were my parents and his parents who had already been chatting and we grew up two hours away from each other. It was like this whole thing that seemed to be very meant to be. And it was passionate and it was exciting and two months later I realized that we had nothing in common. But other people, we sort of trudged along for a year and a half trying to make it work. I didn't want to be in a situation where I was going to trudge along and make it work because I thought that I could someday rekindle those initial sparks. Those initial sparks go away, and the whole name of the game here is how can you meet a person? How can you find that thing that thing that's going to complete you? That will continue to complete you as the years go on. And so for me, the passion, the spontaneity, all of that other stuff, it was either going to be there or it wasn't going to be there. But none of that mattered if I didn't have these incredibly important core things resolved. So you make your list, but then you take a radical, unprecedented data driven next step. You set up ten fake dating profiles, posing as ten men that fulfill these attributes that you're asking for on your Mary Poppins list. And you ultimately interact with 96 women in order to understand how to best position yourself online. What was that like? Tell us about that. Well, I had built this scoring system. So I wasn't actually looking for all 72 things. I was essentially looking for a combination of those things that added up to a certain number of points. And what had happened was in my drunken state, I realized I'd sort of found this perfect guy and I did all the math and crunch the numbers and he would qualify for me to go out with him. And he seemed like the neurotic Jewish doctor of every mother's dreams of my mother's dreams. And when I thought, if I think he's this great, there are probably other women who think he's great, too. So I decided to sign on as a man to just sort of look around and see what was there. Profile after profile after profile, there were happy women that sounded happy that looked happy that used the word happy many times. They were showing skin. They were all beautiful. And I just thought to myself, you know, in person, these women are probably not as interesting as me. They're probably not as smart as me, but it doesn't matter. Because I'm never going to get to that in person date with all of these women on this site. And at that moment I decided I should collect evidence I should do market research. I should do what I would do with a client and treat myself as a client. So I did I spent a month with these profile archetypes I had ten and each one of the profiles had a combination of points that would have qualified him for me to have a long-term relationship. And ultimately, all I wanted to know was who were the women that are attracted to the same men that I am?.

She also hosts the radio show and podcast for the birds and she's written twelve books about burning including in two thousand twenty. The love lives birds. We would go on but the show will be over soon if we do. Good morning. Laura good morning. It's wonderful to have you back on the show. And i want to ask you about that book. The love lives of birds. But i it's late august and it's hot in many places around the country and has been for a while so we wanted to talk to you today about how birds cope or tried to during heat waves and droughts in the how we can help them to. You just wrote an informative piece about this bird watching magazine and one thing you point out. Is that birds can generally cope with cold weather better than hot weather which may be a surprise to some people but tell us why that is. Generally well buried can add to their feathers. We see their outer southers. That's called their contour plumage. But beneath fat they have a thick layer down underwear and they can add to that as temperatures. Start going down and fall so They when we look out in the winter and see how fat the birds look at our feeders. That's not fat. That is their down. Lost it up beneath their outer feathers making them look fat so they're well adapted for that as long as they have enough food They will die. Insectivores died during the big cold. Snap that. We had this past winter down in texas and oklahoma and arkansas Because they must have the food to generate the heat for their insulation to have he told in but hot weather. They can't dissipate that extra heat. The way mammals can buy sweating They have to pant or what we call jewelers fluttering where their whole throat flutters and moisture on the surface of the inside of their mouth and upper throat will evaporate and help cool down but that does not work all that well and so they can They have problems coping with too much heat hummingbirds. just turn the thermostat down In really hot afternoon go through what we call torpor where they just Go into a sort of st of oblivious notice That seems like sleep while their body shuts down to little while the irony. There is birds panting that causes dehydration right so then they need more water but they're more efficient about that the mammals because that evaporation is happening within their mouth and throat so some of it is recovered again. But you're right that's why water is so vital for birds in hot conditions. You talk in the article about Helping birds find nutrition and a big part of that is about planting native trees and shrubs in your yards right right when we look at hummingbirds we always think about our hummingbird feeders but Most of their diet especially when they're regurgitating food when the females are feeding their babies comes from insects and those insects most of the ones that hummingbirds feed on are ones that are associated with the plants in their breeding ground and so locally. Native plants provide that that vital food All kind of birds need plant. Some of them eat plant food directly but most of Just about all our songbirds very dependent on the insects that feed on those plans. Let's switch over to your newest book. Laura is called a love lives of birds. I'm wondering you'd give us a quick thumbnail about what it's about it. Then maybe read the introduction. We actually picked out Something here with the trumpeter swans. Let's call the two of us that chapter the whole book. It's thirty five entries and the publishers wanted something that would Really touch on Human popular culture what we think of as love and how birds love lives fit into that we like to think we're totally different from birds and we call it anthropomorphic. Some if we Say birds are anywhere near like humans in terms of emotion intelligence and all those other things and the word love Some people get very offended and colored anthropomorphic. Some if we say birds feel love but when they lose them they have the same physiological changes that humans that are grieving do and they have the same hormonal impulses to nurture their babies You know we share a whole lot of our genetic makeup and biochemistry with them so so. The book is about popular culture and ways that birds. You know we've been talking about the birds and the bees for how long even though most people have never either witnessed a bird or a be doing the things that birds and bees are famous. We're really getting short time. But maybe Laura you could be maybe just that first paragraph from The two of us about trumpeter. Swans sir you want monogamy. Mary swan a character in the movie. Heartburn nora ephron was no ornithologist but that line from her screenplay was spot Even when trumpeter swans gathering sociable migratory and winter flocks the mated birds among them stick with their partner day in and day out sometimes appear synchronized their movements.

"On. They have someone for that. You know like that's not your focus. Get the suit. Tell the truth yeah. You're not you're not. you're not. You're not responsible for the measurement. It doesn't have to be as as perfect as it needs to be to get it right like it doesn't need to be. You're not out there to design. Something that is that is that i don't know how that applies with anything else in the show but it was an interesting thing for ted to pull. If he's pulling that quote josh. I think he could pull rilke for sure. So the fact that he that he's doing that there i don't know it's well beyond his typical realm. It's not a quote from popular song. It's not a quote from a popular movie. This is a pretty deep kat for ted. So the fact that he's dropping a deep cut like that especially in a moment where he's just gone through under pressure and talked about the shining. I don't think that it was stuck out to me. Let's just put it that way. It's stuck out. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah one of the things. I want to mention before we. Before we get the needle drops in wrap this christopher landau who plays Danny row haas did an ama on the ted lasso. Sub reddit this week. That's kind of a mess with especially cheeky. It was pretty cheeky. Josh that that ama was preaching it I don't know about that. He did answer a ton of questions law a lot more than the typical ama and did not just want to talk about rampart like like some. Ama's of gone off the rails. He was really open to any and all questions but one of the things his loose lips lech slip in a manner of speaking he is. He seemed to confirm that. The second added episode from the season would not be a stand alone episodes and that they found a way to work it into the continuity. So they were what you will. We're flowing now we're in it. We're in it so from from six onward would be able to identify. What was the episode that was added. Got it okay at least christo fernandez whether that's true or not. I don't know we had a lot of rainbow needle drops in this episode swing on rainbow. Frankie avalon starts the episode in a very nora ephron like way i feel like in the way that the soundtracks of her movies often trend in this realm swing rainbow there and she's a rainbow. Obviously probably my single favorite needle drop of the second season which i feel like has lagged on delivering the big musical moments in the way that season one did so fantastically on a couple of different occasions. This is one that the i think really did well with right down to as you point out. The moment of the song with the discordant strings. Playing over nate doesn't sound as happy as the rest of the song there..

"Like like white lotus fred night. We've we've rehearsed every seen one hundred times in my room mate. It was like we had them down to the point of where. How do you want us to do this. You know so coming out of reality bites. Did you have like the idea of like what film or tv career with look like. Did you have like a a model in mind. What what's pursuer to emulate. Or no no not. Really i didn't i i really just. I didn't look that far down the road amino young dumb and just kind of like what's next man you know. what's next. am i going to do go. do another play misha in it. It wasn't until the whole thing is such a it screws up. Because i remember coming back from reality bites and i was i was poorer than when i went and i remember. I remember going wait. This is i. i have less money going. Save that per diem. You gotta be managed. Man's about it. You know in you as a character actor. You don't really get recognized for anything until you know movie seventeen right. Packing those movies are so. There's all these things that you think it's going to be in. It's not so you don't have any expectations. You're just like. I'm just paying my rent and you know did you. Did you have a sense though at some point where like you. I think you've talked about this before. They're literally was or is like a steve zahn type that has been referred to like. You must have had that realization at some point that like you had done a few indelible performances of a certain stripe that in the good way kind of like cemented your kind of identity in maybe a bad way. Typecast you do you remember when that happened when there was kind of a steve. Zahn archetype created i. I don't know. I mean. I think it's like i do remember someone saying yeah went to an addition told me be like you. They call me. I'm available i'm around. You can do it like me. I don't know when that was. I really honestly. It's such a gradual thing for me. I mean that thing you do kind of did some things you put me on platform and you know i know an out of sight did did something and then you know it just interesting because sometimes you work on films that you think are brilliant and really proud of your performance but no one saw your head. You're like no. That was great work. And i'm so proud of that movie and it's very strange with an example of that. Because the i mean i remember back in the day you were. You were like sundance got every year. That was a of sundance film. With steve zahn. I remember being up for meet the parents being ben you know and then there was another movie called happy texas that i loved at the time when you're auditioning and europe for step. You're you're not going on you. You don't know what movies can hit or not. And and i really wanted to do happy. Texas did it. And then miramax bought it was like the biggest acquisition at sunday. Broke all these records. Yep and i think ironically movie that beat it that broke that record was like little miss sunshine but right and and and you know it wasn't released released like two houses and i was doing press for everything and there's a whole story behind that but that was released really think that movie would would have changed things in a different way. You know for sure because it was a really good movie. Well it's funny. It's a it's so much i mean. This is a constant refrain all the conversations. I had with actors so much of people have the have the false notion that actors are in control of their own careers and the reality. Is that like two percent. Have the luxury of of a lot of choice. Must your name. is tom. cruise george clooney most. You're taking what what's available. Are i mean and i know for you like you've talked about like that thing you do is an amazing opportunity and obviously one of the high watermark Say in a great film career. But like i know you wanted courage under fire at the time right. That was the other one. You're going after and that's a different path. That's different career. Isn't that crazy a completely different thing. Yeah were for like you know. Sometimes you're up or stuff. I know that. I it was like me. And matt damon. I think for that ed's where know directing and it was. I wanted that. So bad. You know and then i didn't get it and it was so upset. I was so bummed. Out davis great and at and then i got that thing you do. Which is a complete avenue. But i mean you know you come out of acting school on your plan. Your you know you're right. You're playing one lover and then and then someone you play a stone on all of a sudden you're stone guy for ten years you know well that makes and then eventually older and you're not stone game anymore right you know and it's interesting it's being the bike stoner guy like you. Yes you're playing some parts that are similar but it's also a wide array of different kinds of films. I think of that period in the late nineties. And we're talking about that thing you do but we also talked about like safe men and out of sight and you've got mail like you can't like i mean like nora ephron too soderbergh like you're getting some variety in there even if you're playing were types. Oh totally yeah. I mean i think back. I wish i was a little more aware of what was happening as it was happening. Right as i was. I had the i so lucky.

Because i'm really am struggling and it really matters when you preorder a book. Which is why. I actually did preorder and why said you know what.

Let me look up this memoir. She's talking about it then. Once i looked it up i said this sounds amazing. I should mention as an aside that she was good friends with nora ephron so nora ephron makes an appearance of the book we all love nora ephron who obviously dyed anyway. I'm going on you get what i'm saying. Oh absolutely and i think You know in many ways. We probably have some of the same experiences that she has. You know dealing with just sort of general sexism in hollywood and i. I can't wait to hear. Read her point of view because she's hilarious. Like i read a couple articles wrote and she is so funny. And i love. She wrote something about her relationship with ephron and just like she's it all feels very vibrant and funny which is exactly what i personally need and it comes out on august third which will give me like a few days before bislett gets back from campus. So i'm going to agree. Order it literally like as soon as we're done orting and then. I will expected at my door on august third and i'm just going to dive in. Yeah so anyway. Just wanted to amplify that because i did think it was an interesting story. surrounding The emily in paris versus the.

Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem in Talks to Play Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in Aaron Sorkin-Directed Film
"You've got split into. That's as close as i will ever get to desi arnez voice because it has been announced that aaron sorkin is making a lucille ball and desi arnez bio pic starring. Nicole kidman and javier bardem. I guess this is amazing but also it seems kind of terrible as as ideas go. What was your reaction to this news. My first reaction is. I'm just glad that nicole kidman and gets to have a little bit of just the tiniest bit of fine. Did you ever happened to catch the prom. Was the ryan murphy. Film version of a broadway musical speaking of things. We'll be discussing later on this podcast. I sure did. And i was not a fan nor was i. The only thing that i could say is like when they let nicole kidman do something which was very rare in this. She seemed to be having the time of her life and she was like. I don't have to have a breakdown. Like on a courtroom stand and talk about like really grim things while being filmed for once. And i'm flying free and so you know i assume this. Is i think this project in one form or another. I think errands has been trying to do this for a while. If you google. They're kind of like mentions of this project. Bopping around and i think it's about their marriage and working relationship presumably their ups and downs in it. Because it's a marriage. So i don't think it'll all be sunshine and roses for her but at least you'll get to do comedy. Yeah i think that's right on the one hand. We have seen her do comedy a few times in the past perhaps most notoriously in bewitched your icon nora ephron i kind of interesting but kind of bungled but kind of notable movie. What were you gonna say not. Everything works in not everything works. I'll say next week we're going to talk about one division. And i think the bewitched conversation and the idea of using bewitched as a satirical vehicle into another story is new again so as usual ephron ahead of the curve there nevertheless nicole kidman i. Is she gifted comic actress. I don't know maybe she doesn't have to be for this obviously lucille ball. Desi arnez their story as showbiz. Pioneers is not just a comic story. There's there's a lot of high drama that's place there. The other thing. I thought of when i read this news was that one of aaron sorkin non adapted works to to screen is something called the farnsworth invention which is about essentially the creation of the tv by filo farnsworth and we know that the origins of television and the origins of entertainment are quite important. Taryn sorkin and to the kinds of stories. He's he's often telling stories about people at the forefront of a new life changing kind of technology or culture. We've seen it with steve jobs. We've seen it with moneyball. We've seen it with the social network. He loves to find pioneers and tell their stories. And there's no doubt that. And lucy were major pioneers and tv. So you know.

"You have a memory system that allows that to happen tomorrow. You would remember that. You and i discussed some numbers and that would be. You wouldn't let that would not leave a lasting memory. Just had kind of experience but many experiences can be transformed into lasting memory. Either by a sustained repetition or by emotional arousal which will generate a strong memory of even some what otherwise insignificant insignificant experiences. So we have two ways of making a changing a very short memory and to a lasting memory. Okay so that's part of the paper and so so emotional arousal as you say. Easter necessarily look wiedeman for lasting. No you can You can rehearse things and create lasting memory. Just repeat something over and over again or experience something again and again and memory will be formed in a memory will be a lasting memory. And that's what we do. A lot of in daily lives are. We experienced the same kinds of things on a regular basis. However a a single event can be turned into experience can be turned into a lasting memory if there is emotional arousal at the time and the emotional arousal will produce changes in body and in the brain then which will create a lasting memory. And that's what. I have studied okay and so. So what's the circuitry that is involved the gym Could you go into so. This is what happens in the presence of abortion arousal and and you know some some memory that gets that that gets stored in a very lasting fashion that you can always week collect did if something happening in the brain in the presence of emotion so what does it make mystic narrowed episode. You have an exciting experiences of some kind. You have an automobile accident or you get injured are somebody gives you an ice cream cone. When he didn't expect it to be very positive can be very unpleasant. There is a surge a release of adrenaline ended. The body that adrenalin then activates the brain which causes a release of neurotransmitters in the brain. And that a major one which is involved as noradrenaline or nora ephron when that is released it activates a very specific region of the brand called the magdala which is an almond shaped structure. We have two of them. One on either side and the brian. When that region gets activated it sends projections to a wide array of brain regions. And it says in effect store the experience. You've just had it's important. That's what the magdala does that sends out the instructions. And so whatever happens then. We'll be stored more strongly because of the activation of the immaculate to turn on the processing in these different regions of the brain that are designed to process different kinds of information. Now the michelob doesn't know anything. It just gets turned on as an activator. a modifier. it's an arousal system. But as their design so that when activated when memories are being processed in other places it been memories for storage our process. Much more strongly through the activation of this system. So i'm thinking this. This would catch some selection advantages. I would imagine early. Humans wanted.

"Let's see Mark Twain, Phillip Roth let me take a few others. But an in your writing there's always been a kind of tension between being that person that entertainer and being another client of artists and being being Virginia Woolf in another way. I wrestle with it. I think because you know. Nora Ephron who was a great friend of mine, and kind of mentor and a mentor and a lot of ways. For her. There wasn't this distinction. I mean, she wrote fabulous essays. They were witty. What what I tell my students when I teach is. What do your friends know you ass like who are you among your group of friends? And if when you write that isn't in there. I'm not saying that's not that's always a problem. But I would ask that person. Why why are you not breathing? The fullest version of yourself into your work using everything you've got and for me some of that is humor. There's a line actually in my new novel, the female persuasion that I wish I could have shown to Nora because it's not that I think is so brilliant, but it's a kind of humor that I think I got from her. There's a moment where my character or cadet ski who is looking back on her childhood, and she was very very shy. And she couldn't ask for what she needed. So she was sort of stuck with the weird girl in the class sitting beneath the whiteboard eating Pringles, and they're sitting there one day in the weird girl said to her do you ever think about poisoning our teacher? Grier says. No. And the weird girl says, yeah, neither do I. The thing that line is that it isn't just a funny line. It goes a distance to showing the whole cells the whole sense of a person, not not the girl, but the, but the one who had to sit with her, and what that would have felt like and it creates a world humor creates a world. But I do feel that tension. And and I don't even talk about it, very often. But you, and I've talked about this because we want our writers to have gravitas on the page and get up and be funny. But what if they use them whole their whole selves? And it was funny to does that make them less serious. Some people think it does mentioning, you know, the the late and much missed Phillip Roth, of course, struggled with that throughout his career. And then finally said and broken into. But that makes me wanna leap leaping passed under second novel hidden picks up just because there was a moment in your work. It seems to me, particularly when you wrote this is your life, which is a novel that actually. Nora adapted as a film, the first time you had a book of yours adapted as a as a movie when that was becoming part of your work. You actually did a little stand up gig around that around that around that book when you were drawn to and it's something we've shared for a long time, the urge to entertain I did my my here one man show here last year. And I know you've always been drawn to that side of things and that was very forward in your work for a period there. I yeah, I this is an anomaly the film that was made of it was called. This is my life with Julie Kavanagh as a stand up comic ner to where you couldn't call. It was the copyright issue around even though titles for literature, public domain. There was a copy ready ship is the old TV show his life. This is early. Right. But you know, it's a tender book too. I think it's not I don't humorous novels. Mostly. I don't know. Like, there are some that are absolutely wonderful. But they're usually other things too like rof, the work is so many things. So it's not like adjectivally. You're only hitting on humorous, right? But that's a book about a comedian. It's really about two sisters. It's about two sisters whose mother who have a mother who's not quite available because she's trying to make it as a stand up comic. And I know marvelous Mrs Maes on we haven't seen, but. She's trying to make it. So it's a family story. It's a story about women and work and motherhood and all of those things, but her comedy is not necessarily that funny. Like her name was Dottie angles. And she wore dot, I mean that to give a sense of the aesthetic. Said it was also a portrait of a particular moment in American comedy, kind of Phyllis Diller moment, the housewives. Yeah. The self deprecating housewife Gilman. Absolutely. I love good comedy. I adore it. As you're you. A line that nail something in a novel and just gets it. Right. It's just thrilling to me. Well, those of us who were your readers. Felt I think felt that you were trying on the different costumes in the in the in the room at that. At that point. You would try on sleepwalking a kind of art novel of a kind in this is your life comic novel of another kind hidden pictures dealt with erotic themes in lots of ways, and then you wrote the wife and had very strong sense that you had arrived with that book that you would really found yourself with that book. It's also you had a conversation with a friend. Setup. So I visited. Martha in Paris where Adam was where they were living in Adam was writing to the moon, and they took me out for this wonderful lunch across four, and I said to my dear friends, something along these lines. I don't I'm frustrated with how I'm writing because the things I like to read feel so different from the things I'm writing how can I reconcile them? And Adam and Martha were just so well useful. I mean, the main thing, but but really I think what what good writer friends can do is they listen, and they listen for what you want to do not what they they don't impose something can embolden you. That's I think maybe the one thing friends can do other writer friends can do this. They emboldened me made me feel it wouldn't be crazy to try to sort of push it further because I think I was hesitant at that time and the idea of the wife, which I think you had in your head. Already at that point two seem so day shis, the well, the first of all it's a first person book. I don't know if anyone here read the wife or seeing the. Well..
