Why The Housing Market Is Booming In A Bad Economy
"Glenn kelman has been the ceo of redfin for fifteen years and he says for all that time people looking for a home always put this one thing as their top priority rich poor urban rural people buying homes always had this one big question. What about the commute. The commute to work. Yes it's the old real estate mantra right of time immemorial location location location and most of the time. Those locations were big cities. Were most of the jobs were concentrated and as a result buying home in these cities had become kind of blood sport. The new york real estate market the san francisco real estate market. These were insane markets where there were bidding wars with twenty thirty forty buyers glimpses smaller cities rural areas. Were just a different world. In fact over the last few years housing sales had been a little sluggish and there was a bunch of speculation. About why millennials weren't buying houses. And what was going on. Yeah that has changed. The national association of realtors announced that from may to june just as the covid nineteen crisis was bearing down on businesses and millions of people were losing their jobs pending home. Sales rose more than sixteen percent. That's the biggest monthly rise on record. That is crazy to me because you know like in every five americans is on unemployment like i. It's like blowing my mind that homeownership rates might also be going up or that there's kind of a real estate boom but it sounds like there is well. It's white collar professionals who are able to work from home in some ways. This is a sign that the economy is just officially split in two. You have people who are worried about unemployment benefits running out and at the same time you have other people who are able to work from home and thinking about the home all the time and that's where they want to spend their money. These are the people who are really benefiting now because even if the economy is going through a crisis for them it's not crisis just sale. Glenn says that for the people who were lucky enough to have kept their jobs. A huge number of them are working from home now. And that's changed everything the traffic to listings that are in towns with populations of less than fifty thousand people is up eighty seven percent in other words. It's no longer location location location. It's more like space space space. And glenn says he's also seeing a big migration of people out of big cities like new york l. a. chicago and san francisco to smaller cities. Like palm springs tucson austin grand rapids and nashville and tiny san francisco and new york apartments. That used to have forty people. In a bidding war people have been leaving those places in droves tanya zapata and her husband moved to san francisco about seven years ago at the time they got one of those overpriced apartments in san francisco but a couple of months ago tanya and her husband noticed that a lot of people were moving out of their high rise. I started seeing a lot of people moving out of the building and tiny and her husband started to think maybe they have the right idea and they started looking around on the internet and then one day my husband saw this house and not by which is in the middle of vineyard and and the house is so beautiful because you have been yards all around the house It has space with fruit trees and also Raised beds for for growing your own vegetables. So we were like this is amazing. Go to napa. The house was not cheap. In fact it was about twice the rent that they were paying in san francisco but it had more than three times. The amount of space also their parents could move in with them. They had this big yard and all this land for their daughter to run around. Glenn kelman ceo redfin. He says people are making tania's calculation every day now paying the same amount of money that they're paying city but getting way more space for example he is seeing a lot of requests for extra bedrooms for parents and grandparents and requests for extra rooms for offices and home gyms
The Hardest NO-GO Decision I've Ever Made: Metal Fatigue in Piper Wing
"Yeah in papers a whole interesting conversation. I can tell you guys need. We can even start there. I made one of the hardest decisions in my life. The hardest no-go decision i've ever made was. We ended up driving the motorhome down here to palm springs which tickets twelve hours. I'm sitting all the way down. I'm thinking i'm a pirate. I gotten here three hours. You know but the only airplane of currently checked out in where we're living in. Grass elliott has that piper and You know there's wing spar issues with the partner. Your official came out the yeah. Yeah that's that's part of the story so but this is before the came out and I've been flying at you. You know. I've been making videos in it. I've been checked out in it. But when i was making the video i was gonna interview the mechanic because i wanted to tell the story that this is no big deal that these spars are dealt with that they're inspected and i assumed that. When i interviewed the mechanic i was gonna get an open and shut case. I figured the mechanic tell me something solid. I would record the mechanic saying that. I could button it up for everybody on youtube and we could move on But that's not what happened in fact what ended up happening is i stopped flying the plane and the reason was because i didn't like what the mechanic told me. I mean. It really did not inspire confidence and i don't know if we got off to a bad start well there so i actually interviewed mechanics. The first one it appears in this was not the one related to the actual era that i was flying. This is somebody at a different airport but also managed piper aircraft. And i just went in. I thought i'd give him a cameo sort of throw a bone and i asked him. Are there any out for the wing. Spars on the piper in the and he didn't know what i was talking about he'd never heard of it and he's been like over issue going. Eighteen eighty seven no wings gonna follow. Yes going on for a long time and for those. That don't know that that the accident that put it on my radar was in two thousand eighteen at embry riddle angry tone of florida. When a commercial candidate and a designated pilot examiner had the wing separate in-flight doing normal one g flight maneuvers. Like touching goes. They weren't doing lazy aides or any steep turns nothing that would load the wing up there just doing touch and goes on the upwind. The wing fell off and they both died. And if you look if you google and start looking at it there are there are versions of the wing spar issue that goes far back as nineteen eighty seven so the first mechanic i interviewed did not know about it and actually he said if there's an ad i would know about it and he went into the system he goes. Oh no here's one. It says you have to inspect it at twenty seven thousand hours. So what he didn't he wasn't putting together and i didn't wanna cruise fine but when he wasn't putting together was the embry riddle crash plane. Had about seventy five hundred dollars on it. So i knew that there was an requiring inspection at twenty seven thousand hours. The issue is here was a two thousand something model airplane two thousand and four two thousand seven. I can't remember it wasn't that old. And here's one. That had seventy five hundred or so hours on it and the wing fell off so clearly. There was a disconnect right. Can't like just a fraction of the allowable time so i just thanked him and i laughed and thought okay. I'm not gonna use that guy. So i went to the actual mechanic that worked on the arrow that i've been flying and i don't know if we got off on a bad foot because i asked him i if i could film it and i think that pissed him off and he's like no pow does so so that's fine. I put the camera down. But then i just said hey i just want to know what you think about the wing spar and he goes what about it and i said well you know. There's been some failure issues. i'm not worried about it. That was his answer. I'm not lying so right so this is not what i wanted to hear. This wasn't going to be like the open and shut case that i was hoping to roll into this video. This was like wait a minute. If you're not like you should have a better attitude than i said. Well is there a d. goes nope there's no well there's not the isn't there something and he goes. Well there's a service bulletin. Which is i said. What's the difference between eighty eight service bulletin. And he says an ad is mandatory compliance service. Bulletin is a recommended procedure. And i said did you do the service boat and he goes. Nope and i was like so. You didn't do the service bullet he goes. Nope and i was like why not he goes. Because i'm not worried about it so these are not answers that like inspire confidence right and so i went and looked over the airplane logs. I just poured over the airplane logs and they had eight thousand hours on the airframe which is five hundred more than the aircraft at embry riddle. So i'm sitting here thinking about a logical perspective. Because i didn't like the answer. I got and then i asked i so. I called the mechanics of san carlos slate center who i know and trust and they said no. You guys should be doing that. He's said that that's not that's not. Okay he should have done the service bulletin and they should look at it every annual so i asked the owner of the flying club and i said hey what are you guys do the annual look we look at it every annual we get in there. We inspect it but what he wasn't connecting. Was the failure happened. There was a crack at a point. That's not visible not visible during an annual inspection so inside where the yeah the only way to get to that component is to take the wings off and that's a whole process and i'm sure it's expensive and not fun to do. But he him telling his way to check it without that if if you look at ad they don't recommend remove their now require the removed. Wayne's there is a check that you can do without ruining the ways that will determine if it's At risk interesting. Let's let's talk about that in a second but the wrap up of the story is i thought about it and i actually was about to go get in the airplane to fly back to the bay area to do a lesson with joe i was gonna film the commute to make it a youtube video for last week saying this is how i commute in an airplane and i was gonna use it to take my family to palm springs right after all that happened so if i decide to make this decision. It's like if i decide that this airplanes not safe for me to fly. Based on what. I've just heard from ali people. I'm going to have to call joe and cancelled last minute. I'm going to torpedo the youtube video. And i'm gonna end up driving twelve hours in the motor home with the kids to get to palm springs but you know after talking it over with my wife and she goes. What was her comment. This was the was sealed it for me. She goes she goes. If something happens you can deal with it right. And i said no you're not getting it then wing falls off like it's not because you're dealing with this this is like you're a lawn dart you know and just imagining putting the kids in the back putting my wife in there just imagining anything like that where to possibly happen for me. It was like it was just a no-go so anyway really tough call. I even called flake chops to haven't talked me off a wall. I called the guys on my content team. And i was like did i make the right decision. This is stupid and then two days after we got here to palm springs the faa issued an airworthiness directive. That says. everybody has to do what. We're gonna talk about here. Second so i felt really justified at that point really thankfully at least there's an ad the guys on my team texted me and said it looks like your decision making was okay. You know and i felt really good about having made that decision
Southwest Airlines Pushes to Expand Amid Pandemic Pressures
"The pandemic has devastated demand for air travel in response. Many airlines have pulled back offering fewer flights cutting jobs and rewriting the route maps yet. During all of this upheaval one carrier stands out. Southwest airlines is taking aggressive steps to expand. It's a high stakes gamble but southwest is betting. It'll help the company emerged from the pandemic stronger than before. Let's take a look at the company. Strategy and wide sky competitor's talking with the journals ala's insider who covers the airline industry for us. Hi allison it's always good to have you here. Thanks for having me so. Allison we should be clear. Southwest is facing plenty of struggles revenue in the third. Quarter is down. It's burning cash and it still dealing with the seven. Three seven max which won't return to service for a while yet but at the same time it's adding cities like palm springs. California steamboat springs colorado. It's also moving into big airports like chicago. O'hare is well. how can this be. yes definitely. there's no airline that has really escaped. The devastating impact of the pandemic and south west is no exception on track to lose money this year. You know really for the first time in in other breaking a forty seven year streak. It's a huge deal for the company. And they're talking about and seriously considering furloughs also for the first time in their history so you know. This is really unprecedented for them. But the strategy of being opportunistic a downturn. That's not that's not unusual for them. That's something they've done time and again in the past in sort of how they've grown throughout their history so in some ways it's it's not surprising to see them doing that again. Okay let's get into specifics. What's the strategy. What opportunity does southwest see here how they explained it was that the way their network is now. They have multiple flights day all of these cities. And that's been you know offering. That kind of schedule is sort of a big advantage for them but now that demand is down so much they just don't need to be offering five six seven flights a day in some of these places so they it means they have extra planes in extra people they need to deploy somewhere else so they sort of looked all over the country in thought like work and we really quickly move. That would kind of help bring in revenue right away for us. And that's how they picked some of these new cities as you mentioned. Southwest may break its profitability streak yet. It does have a lot of things working in its favor. It has less debt and lower costs compared to its rivals southwest. It's hard to say. Any airline is well positioned right now but southwest came into this crisis with a lot of advantages and they had a lot less debt than some of their biggest rivals so even though they've taken on a lot of debt during the pandemic they still they still have more cash than debt which is pretty rare position to be in for an and that's something that sort of gives them a little bit of a cushion and a little bit of flexibility to try things or the rivals like spirit and allegiant watching they offer low fares and find opportunities at empty your airports and is this. A big risk for south west. I was definitely watching. United executive sort of said at o'hare you know. They said we have the high grounds and they're not too worried from from what they said. But you know there are so few people traveling right now in the recovery expected to be so rocky. I i really think airlines are just competing over every passenger one. Great example of that is how the big airlines like united and american delta. Have done away with cheney's or most domestic changes. Anyway you know. That was a huge selling point for south west for years. So that's something that's going to make the competition even more heated. So what could that mean for travelers more options more competitive fares. Yes i mean over the course of its history. Southwest going into a market often brought fares down significantly and sort of got new people brought new people into traveling and something that the department of transportation once called the southwest effect. So i always tends to increase competition and bring down fares when a new entrant jumps into a market alison insider covers the airline industry for the wall street journal. Allison thanks so

Inland West Coast Roadtrips
"If, you're ready for a memorable road trip where there's more to explore the freeway rest stops Chandler O'Leary wants to take you up the US west coast. She joined us a few months ago with tips for driving the Pacific. Coast highway from San Diego to big Sur, the redwoods and the Pacific northwest rainforest. She's back to recommend a few of the inland highlights from the desert playground palm springs through the orchards. California's Central Valley, old western Sacramento, and all the way up to my home turf around Seattle the detailed in her book the Best Post, a road trip Alice Chandler welcome back. Thank you for having me. So we talked about the coastal route before now we're GonNa talk about the inland. Route make a case for not taking the coastal route because I would think everybody wants to go up the coast, but you make the inland sound pretty good. I feel like if you like your vintage, Americana this the road trip for you and yeah, you're not gonna see the coasts until you get all the way up to Washington but if you're really into things like palm springs and mid, century architecture old neon signs, a roadside attractions, you're going to get tons of that on this route. I love roadside attractions, publicity stunts from fifty of your. What are few of those that come to mind because I just think they're so funky. The giant oranges that used to be Oliver California and there's a couple of them left and they were they to be drink stands for you know when you were thirsty on the road, you get fresh California orange juice right and they're still a couple of them left along old either farm. There's farm country all the way along the way absolutely all three states. So we're going sixteen hundred miles and apparently it's the old isn't isn't like the highway ninety nine is of it is yeah and in California highway. Ninety nine mostly is still intact and it's even a freeway in some places, but once you get into Oregon and Washington because of the mountains, it starts getting a little bit tricky kind of pick. Cherry pick sections of the old road and then connect with I five. Yes. It's just like route sixty six how it's kind of been swallowed up by interstate in places like five is it's sort of the enemy on the other hand. It's practical because he gets you from A to B in a hurry. Yeah. What's your philosophy you're gonna go from going basically from San Diego to Bellingham Right What's your philosophy on the balance between I five in the old roads I think you wanna use I five when you WanNa, make good time and take the old rose if you wanna have a good time. That's kind of how I look at it good time or have a good time. That's good. So let's talk about California first of all New Mexico on one side of the border and collection collects. It collects co is on the or is on the California side and Mexico on the Mexico side. So that's where a route starts are these kind of sister towns in away or are unfortunately there's a big old wall separate him so you Or now you have to go through the big international the big national checkpoint because I did that between San Diego and Tijuana was easy just walk across I think right now that's not the same as it used to be, but it may be again I mean who who knows what we're starting in Calexico then What's the flavor of collects goes? That's just a springboard or anything to do there. It's a sleepy small town and but it's kind of you kind of get the flavor of where you're starting and you're going to start out in the low desert. You're below sea level here that's below civil come into palm springs. A waste. It is palm springs to us. Palm Springs is is kind of Wacky. It got big in the nineteen fifties. So there's a lot of great mid century architecture there, but it's very glamorous. It's very glitzy. There's a lot of designers their fashion show was movie stars that doesn't retirement communities to. snowbirds it's kind of this weird mix of college spring breakers and snowbirds. Okay. So you put that in your checklist and then some I know in your book, you talk about a lot of worthy detours you know in one of your favorites would be Joshua Tree National Park. Yes. Joshua tree is stunning and Joshua tree trees actually the high desert. So it's above palm springs at altitude. So it has a completely different desert climate different plants, different animals. So Joshua Tree is one of these cartoon book yeah. Of Justice Joshua Tree is these classic kind of quintessential cactus Yes. Yes. So what do you do in Joshua Tree National Park Jessica cactus there's a great hikes. There's actually only those cactus in one small part of the park is an enormous park. So there's different bombs great rock formations they are beautiful scenery and

You can never be too aware of just like in general our health on but I was always super health conscious even before this because being on the road. made it so much more likely that that I could you know get sick or catch something and in the last thing I ever wanted to do is cancel the show So so it's definitely like It in anything makes me so excited to be able to go back to concerts because I just know that it's something that like now that we don't have it like hopefully, we're all like GonNa appreciate those things that much more only do I think that a lot of artists are having interesting conversations right now just about like what the future looks like.

What why? Just ten minutes because it's enough that people don't think that you're disrespectful but. You could have just been stuck in a little bit of traffic, but the thing is whenever I would get places on time. Everyone was always like not ready for me urban like Oh. Wow you're you're you're so you know I'm just working a few more things than than we can get started I'll be but then why not set it for for ten minutes later you know so I'll just get their ten minutes later and do favorite.

"So. Hello everybody. I'm going to start this Nov because I'll explain the situation so it is. Ten Two PM on Saturday evening, we sat down to start the podcast at five PM. With our Sabrina Carpenter Interview Becker would you like to explain what happened earlier? Well. It seems as though when you're in the poll and you're drinking, you don't realize how much the drinks are affecting you until you get out of Said Pool and then walk to start a podcast. No first of all, it was not just the drinks and the pool it was we're in one hundred and nine degree heat, and we also only have like chips and Guacamole, and croissant. So I had a muffin. EMINEM's pistachios. Chips and walk and French fries. But the problem was the six to seven Spicy Margaritas that I had in the pool. So I didn't even feel the heat speak of Oh I don't know. I think. But anyways, they were delicious by the way. Spicy Margaritas were divine the with Avila via Royal Villa Royale via Royale Yeah. Thanks California. It's great. It's been great. They're wonderful I. Love This Hotel I. Love It. I feel very safe here. I feel safe enough to drink seven six to seven. So. That's the problem is like we've all been quarantined. We haven't been doing anything, and then like we come here and feel like we're on bake I mean we are on vacation. Yeah and so we kind of went back to like nineteen, ninety nine. So we did what we did and a week come back to the room. I don't remember the walk from the. Nepal to said room. To start the interview and I. Will have to remind me of what happened I share my perspective. Is. During. Easily sober. Yeah. saw everything unfold I. am fully sober I was told to come to Tanya's room at you know.

"Like the way that that Niles Dammit, you know set Sarah apart that he that he he's like. That he recognizes that she is. Singular and special and that it's not just because they're trapped in the time loop together but they. Like it's about like choosing a person and recognize. All of that stuff is You know it's It it. Really it really worked on me. Yeah. I. Think part of it is the like the romance in this I think is is really sweet in a way that. We don't necessarily always get like they. The the getting to know you part I thought was really nice. It wasn't like. It's it's colored and sort of ruined by the fact that we find out that they had already fucked before. But if you like remove that a little bit like they just like get to know each other because they're stuck in this space and it seems like they sincerely like each other and so when they do actually have sex, it's like a very concerted effort to be like, okay. It's now time to do this because we really like being with each other and so at the end when. At the very end when he like you know he's like, I, love her and Blah Blah Blah and he she wants to get out of this and he wants to stay in it because to him. It seems like the best thing that's ever happened to him is meeting this person and he doesn't want to break that spell and she says. Like when he's like when they're negotiating the the relationship before they're about to blow themselves up. He says, what if we get sick of each other or she says, Sarah says, what have we get sick to each other and he? He's just the way he says, we're already sick of each other just in the lake we've been through so much together. We know that we like being around each other right and she's like it would life would be more bearable with you. It was it just felt. It felt established. It felt like a comfort. Yeah, I mean, it felt like it felt like you had a basis in like he has the foundation of experience from which to declare that because he knows what it's like to go for fucking ever without feeling connected to another person and so then doesn't yet like and it wasn't like puppy love either, right? No, we love each other so much going to last forever, and then you hate each other in a month or whatever. Right? It exactly like to me. As ridiculous as the premise of this film inherently absurd as the promise of this film is I feel like it. It did it does have that earnest desire to treat the dynamic of their relationship at. As sincerely and substantially as possible while still being a a fun silly, you know a- charming sweet kind of romantic. Comedy Film but yeah out like. that that he you see this change in Ham and as he as he understands that like life just means more when you have a connection a a meaningful connection to other to other to other people you know obviously I like that a lot. I also being the cynic that I am I. Did love that. He he makes this declaration in the cave for they're about to blow each other up. and. Like you know you're everything I can't live without you. I don't WanNa live without you whatever, and crucially Sarah says I would be just fine without you. Like it better. Yeah. Yeah I, love that Cardi statement you. It's just it's so authentic and so real that I was just like Oh. Yeah. Okay. Golf Clap for that one I really do like. Yeah, totally, and you know the movie itself like is very colorful in a way that I feel like was refreshing like just the aesthetics of being in Palm Springs right at the desert the like the pools and the like the. It's visually stimulating in a way that felt light and fluffy and that we felt. Refreshing to me, and the music does a great job of enhancing that atone as well. I think it's it's the soundtrack is really excellent. There are a few interestingly like there are a few I think this movie deliberately. Leaves a few little lingering questions are puzzles that it doesn't answer which are just you know not central to what the film is doing or what it's about, but are just kind of fun to to think about. So for instance, there's the old woman older woman at the wedding rue at the. Towards the very end like the on basically like Sarah's Niles like last night in the time loop, she says very. Sort of enigmatically something like well I guess you'll be going soon which right like what does that is she may so my little head can around that is oh, she's in a loop, but she doesn't want to leave because she's old and maybe she's alone and maybe it's like it's too scary. You know like it is that comfort to her of just like that exists I but I don't know but it's like it's clearly like the film just wanted to like plant a seed of like what's up with that that's interesting. Well, they're. Also another question of and maybe this isn't a question, but it was to me. So there's the sense that like they because Sarah knows that tomorrow will calm brace she solved the problem she knows how to do it. So she has a very nice time at the wedding rates. She makes sure that that last day is good right so it's not like you know her sister loses her teeth is the last day or what have you? Right? She says a nice speech everyone dresses nicely, Yadda Yadda Yadda. There's no nothing out of the ordinary. But the way that they show you like at sort of mid credits or you know towards the end where apparently Sarah had called Roy and said, I solved the problem. This is how you get out of it. Roy Shows up at the wedding on in his own time loop and Niles doesn't recognize him or knows who he is. Yeah Yeah. Like last day is what day is the memory of Glenn is what because? Because you if you leave the time loop, then does that mean that everything reset somehow? Yeah I think my like my little. Woman. With math equations hovering in front of her gift. Acclimation for that is that is that that's only four. Roy. Because he still in the time loop but that in the reality that Niles and Sarah are in like everyone who who, in that reality would remember the wedding as it happened that day but there's also the discrepancy or the question of. Of Sarah says that the how she knows that it works is that she uses like a is it a goat or an animal to test that theory and then And then when the loop resets the the animal has gone but but then but so but then. Sarah and Niles. Dawn for Roy in his time loop why wouldn't they be gone like I? Don't? I. DuNNo. Whatever. Not. Questions that matter at this is what I actually love about time loop in time travel movies, and also this came up for us when we talked about the old guard is there like there's so many questions we can ask like there's no nothing's ever going to answer and all of the questions and be so low like solid lead tightly. Created and so I kind of enjoy this part of these kinds of..

"But Sarah, we get a larger better sense of who she is outside of it like she seems like a deep or more resonated character. That's that's that's all I'm saying is that like the things that? Sarah does that are Kinda fucked up I? Think the film is more willing to linger on the fact that these are fucked up things and not try to you know like we aren't allowed to kind of dismissed them easily because she's charming funny guy in the way that we do for Niles because it's Andy Sandberg he's funny. He's great and so you know it's like, okay, it's fucked up thing you did Hillary Q.. And that actually is a good point in terms of how character development happens in this movie because like we do kind of instantly think we understand Andy but we're not really given a whole lot like it's definitely done with a lot of tropes of like hit like a character like his girlfriend says, you know don't don't bring the drama in here like I know you hate weddings and that's like all we get in terms of his back story and we already kind of feel like we know the guy because he comes in being all like Whoa? I'm going to wear Hawaiian shirt to this wedding whereas with her like her backstory is You know she drinks a lot and she she sleeps around a lot and I think that like we ascribe a lot to what it means to be that person like as the audience were filling in those blanks and so the character development we're getting well actually I. Guess. I. Just said the same thing we are filling in the blanks with both of them. But we do know I think a little bit more. Or maybe it's just because I like her character so much like. That however long she stuck in the loop when when she reaches her breaking point, what she does, she goes out and becomes a fucking visit. Hundred spare time at a diner and figure out how to fucking busted. We added the system meanwhile niles has been doing this for IMF will not evidently longer but longer and his you know sort of you know decided okay, this is it is what it is like everybody is dealing with this in their own ways but the way that Sarah deals with it does tell us a little bit more about her character and. The fact that kind of from the beginning she is dissatisfied maybe it's because she hasn't been longer maybe if she had been in a longer, I don't know she also would have given up but I don't get that sense. You know I feel like she would always have been like no I. Refuse I refuse to give up I refuse to like let my destiny determined for me. I have to get out of this. there's a third character in the mix with the two Oh. Yeah. who is named Roy played by the One and Only J. K. Simmons and I mean J.. K.. Simmons is just a delight like you know whatever always kind of enjoy I mean usually enjoy see he can be of course whatever he can be Intense and intimidating to like in that that music movie but that music movie whatever it was called Oh eight God. Yeah. But you know about best picture nominee Blah Blah Blah Birdman. No. That was the other one. They both were best picture nominees the same year man and I hated both of them. So whatever please continue caroline. Most at least. I'm one of those people who you see him shopping like romantic comedy. It's like Oh. Nice. JK seven whatever. But his character in this Roy was sort of pulled into the vortex of time loop a Tude. Know. And now he hates Niles four for voicing this existential hell upon him as well. You know like Roy is a weird character in the sense that I mean he. So you know where one point? Niles like just he's I don't know he's trying to. Do something, and so we go. Go to Roy's house. So Roy Roy is an older man obviously again he's play J. K. Simmons he has a much younger wife and two young young children like children who were still growing up and everything. And he says at one point this seven or eight something. Yeah and. This was like out of all the things in the movie. That we can talk about as like big things. There might be a little. Problematic et Cetera like the one thing in the movie that made me go. Was when Roy says of his wife. Being, stuck in stay forever and ever he says she's in the prime of her womanhood. Like. What is This older man I don't know it's just like it's just like another part of the whole media. Thing always normalizing like older men with younger women and like. This idea of women value being tied to their usefulness and all that stuff I was like dude I, mean, and obviously like whatever Roy is not necessarily supposed to be a character. We're supposed to like him, but he's also supposed to be. You know he's he's a character like in the sense of wow that dude's a real character. But you know it's still was a little I was a little I. Don't say that right? Yeah and that whole lake. So so the so roy like finally. Resigns himself to the fact that like he's GonNa live this day over and over again and he's GonNa. Learn to love it. which you know if you get stuck in this time Luke for long enough, you'll probably like go through another phase of hating it or whatever. Yeah. But? He talks about how like you know he? He drank too many my ties and couldn't put a condom on and then he had got these twins and thank God for my ties and just the whole thing you're like. You're just go gross dude man. This nothing good about you here but the show, but the movie doesn't frame it that way right like an not and cheese he. So Andy Sandberg Niles goes to see Roy because he's heartbroken like he misses Sarah so much and he's like. Broken up about it and he doesn't know what to do and he's just like I need to feel pain again right. So he goes to the only other person that he can and sees the sort of settling down. It's very traditional and a lot of ways right like narrative. Yeah. Also. As a kid watering his dog shit and I mean that was really funny where he's like and there's my son watering dog shit and I've seen that happen like twenty, six, thousand times. Also great to see Dale dickey. In this movie, you know like value for money J., K., Simmons, Dale dickey always happy to see both yeah. I. Mean like there. There are funny. There are laugh out loud funny moments in this movie, and there are also moments that are just. In. Utter ably sweet. Talking about like this. Finding. Someone that you can connect with on that deep level when they are on mushrooms and they see the dinosaurs. Like. Yeah. Whatever you may think it was corny. I found that beautiful I. Love that moment and. Really the whole I mean like this is a film that when it comes to romance love is you know it's it's a lot of ways like it's like it's aligned with my personal ethics or my personal like what I you know I'm.

"She's like, but he now has this information about where she has never shows up about hotel room. There's literally a smash cut in the movie where I was like Oh now he's GonNa show up like knock on that door. And he didn't. Come back him could be because it's a weird writing, or because he he's really so passive and. Go with the of his character, but you're right. That is where you could sort it out and come up with an alternate solution. If you wanted to hate because we haven't mentioned yet I feel like we have to talk about. Roy J K, Simmons Character. If only because I, just really want. Just, entirely about Roy, he's such a great character, and just reminded me of how funny J. K. Simmons can be I. Guess We're used to seeing him. Be Funny and that kind of martinet yelling mode that you always see him in, but his character, and this has a different quality of kind of sweetness, and and I absolutely loved him especially in the scene where they do some kind of drug that seems that it wants to die their noses, bright, yellow, bright, green like this really farcical scene of the to them, getting high in bonded together I, loved it. Right which is how Roy ends up in the time loop in the first place like Niles just they do.

That came to Netflix's weekend. And that's when you caught up with Josh and they understand. You liked it. Maybe not as enthusiastically as I did, but you went forward. Okay? Yeah, consider me. Me a fan, I think I probably became a little more wearied by the gunplay. Which you mentioned was your talked about it probably a little more than you did, but yeah, definitely appreciated and think it's something that people should check out. Last weekend also saw the release of the World War Two thriller Greyhound with Tom Hanks that's on apple, plus neither of us have had a chance to see that yet, but fellow critics have assured us that the nation's fathers and grandfathers have a new favorite movie and Josh.

Yup, at the music box theatre where it's going to be playing again this weekend actually here in Chicago in seventy millimeter interstellar currently ranked number two on your Nolan. List for me this. Who've review was my first revisit sense two thousand fourteen now on the two of us. The movie has a score of seventy four. Critic among critics that's considered generally favorable, and for what it's worth. Most of Nolan's movies hover around the seventies on metacritic Dunkirk. That's his highest rating there with a ninety four. So that's where we stood. But where do we stand now in two thousand twenty? Have you add them passed through a wormhole and come out on the other side to see the error of your ways have I been sucked into a black hole trapped behind some cosmic bookshelf as punishment until I admit the air of mine. We could relitigate are twenty fourteen debate. We could revisit the same points. We both brought up, but I'm not sure how fruitful that would be I'm happy to do some of that and I promise I will not bring up a certain nineteen, sixty eight sci-fi epic. You declared verboten when discussing interstellar listeners, they can revisit that whole discussion in the archives at film spotting dot net episode five fifteen. Today. I'd like to start where that review ended in a last-minute attempt to bring me on board Adam. You asked me if I wasn't just plain thrilled watching interstellar.

There's always a moment. Nolan blows your Noggin, intellectually emotionally existential early, and all I can do is let out a Guffaw of appreciation. We've already talked about some of these. These moments in our overview. I think of Memento where Leonard says I'm chasing this guy. Nope he's chasing me. Or how about the image of the hats in the prestige?
