"Knowledge of. I thought i had deep deep brain pits but that dude and so we this this character mode doc which is so. He is such a ridiculously brilliant character. A super intelligent angry floating head. With little shrunken arms and legs and this little floating. Scooter that wants to rule the world you know and become emperor mode actually. How do you make a series about him from his point of view. The idea what i loved was the fact that he hates the marvel superhero. Spider-man captain america as much as he hates all the other villains because in his mind is should be. It should be me and then doctor doom and green goblin but he's like down at fifth and sixth place and it drives him crazy so he truly hates everyone and he's his own worst enemy and its community communicates. It's so fun to play. And it's at say we took what could have been very one note thing in jordan and his his writing and world building. We made a very deep kind of beautiful show about fatherhood and family and and Humility with every everything in the marvel toy box we wanted to use lettuce us including some x. Men stuff which i was shocked. They let us use. They're like yeah. You can go ahead. We'll won't so that was really exciting. I i don't know about you. But i can't believe how deep we are and how just how many levels in we are into comic book movie. Tv shows. I mean like you know you've got a couple years on me. But like i remember growing up. It was like an event when they made a flash tv show on. Yes there were so few and far between it and the the fact that you're talking about mode dock and we have like all these like these. Mcu tv shows coming and all these multi versus like now. That's the next thing. Seems like both dc and marvel are gonna just basically embraced the multi-diverse thing it's well it's also because there's a generation grew up on that stuff when it was very limited and it was being done by people that only saw this as a property will just make some money in that it. And they're like well. No there's a whole world here and you can use it to smuggle stories about you. Know racial inequality Trans or gay rights. economic inequality. You can use that as a way. Just like jorge romero us. Neither living dead to basically he made a movie about how the late sixties america was burning to the fucking ground is like no one wants to watch that on the smuggle this in a monster movie and that's happening now with superheroes was an especially especially with horror films the wave of horror movies coming up right now and these streaming platforms like arrow and shudder. That are giving these filmmakers. That can't get distribution the movies that are coming out of these platforms are insane are so good and so brilliant and are addressing all the stuff that's going on. Where are you at with star wars right now. Are you watching mandalorian. What was. I'm basically i'm in. I'm in mandalorian territory. Where i think that is the way for. Oh my god christ. Is this the way. Is that what you're saying. This is the way the stuff that they're doing with that show and the places that they're the gaps that they're filling in but without doing it. They're not they're not doing it with to quote a brilliant south park thing they're not using the member bury's model member this member this member. It's there for a specific emotional or logical reason rather than look at this. Look at this. I don't know if i don't win this episode drops. We probably shouldn't talk about episode one yet but some pretty big god damn yes seen happen in that which ho shit out spine. Yes that is worrying but also titillated. Maybe that's not what i think it is or maybe but like still the fact that they're doing what they're doing with it in such a brilliant is is it's fascinating what's the post mortem has one key to another on russell skywalker. What's be honest here. What happened pattern. This is just one geeks opinion. I loved the last jedi. I thought it was fucking brilliant and all the way on it. All these people fucking force awakens comes out and it was like. It's just the same. Damn thing ryan johnson comes along takes it in new directions. Which is what empire did never goes. What's all this shit. And then on the rise of the skywalker people. God bless them. They got spooked by the internet. They should have just gone a fuck. You guys we want. We want to keep going be. He opened up this whole new run. That thing at the kid just randomly moves broom. And you're like oh the force has no. It just goes anywhere. It still comes down to people's moral choices as to where to take that. Which is what the mandalorian is doing in a brilliant way with with baby. Yoda but he opened this door. And then you just. I mean again all these all these fucking angry nerds who by the way are also about fucking never apologize. And don't listen to all this goddamn p. c. s. j. w. shit yet. Well let's take this the next up. Just listen the internet period. Just fucking go. Do something created that you want to fucking do and then people no one knows what they fucking want. Do what you think is creative in risky and people will show the fuck up for it. Has your buddy jason reitman giving you a sneak. Peek at the new ghostbusters pattern. I am not going to say..

"I have. I've always said that john carpenter's halloween. The original one released today except for like very brief nudity would just be a pg thirteen. There's there's very little violent. It's all suggested it's all scream Murder on the orient express the The murder murray Express is more horrifying than anything in the movie. Halloween in terms of sustained violence and the angle he shoots at. It's so disturbing. When did you encounter this pattern. This was this came out when you were results. I assume this was i forget. Might've been in college or something but there was just something about this. 'cause i'm very ocd. So that i'm very this kind of. Ocd guy just kind of in his own little world accurate poirot and he has to like not only does he have to like put this mickey kind kinda put together spitefully because at the end. Yesterday's actually. This murder was done for good reasons. And i can't actually arrest. Who did it. And he asked to make this bigger moral choice which is again foreshadows these massive moral choices or that world was about to be put through right very weird way So there was just something. It just hit me. It hit me at the right. Goddamn time and also sidney lumet. He's just an amazing filmmaker. He's amazing with images they pull you in He's amazing directing actor so that you're just constantly can't keep your eye off the screen. I just love it. You alluded to a bit. And you mentioned some of the actors. But this is one of those classic seventies like ensembles that at that. Oh i think you would also where you're saying it's kind of the last gasp of of an old world not potentially the acting too. It's like richard win mark and then but then it's like michael york. These different generations kind of colliding ingrid burr. yeah feel-good but then anthony perkins martin balsam lake. These great character actors. Sean connery by the way us. Also i mean just the fact that there's so many things going on in terms of they wanted ingrid bergman to play the Lauren bacall part she goes no. I wanna play the kind of mentally disabled nurse rights. You want an oscar for it today. Richard mark who basically this. How cool ritu with. Mark was he goes. I took the role. Because i just wanted to meet all these actors. I'm such a fan of all of them. So like the fact that a guy of that stature richard marku such an icon especially like filmed warr and everything. But he's still a fan of the movies like i get to meet. Sean connery loved talk. So that was really you know. And then in the middle of an albert finney justice absolute powerhouse. And it's show brilliant you've got twelve of the world's actually fourteen of the world's best actors and they end the whole last twenty minutes. They can't speak while he goes on to. There's real tension in that room of like. How fucking long do i have to sit here and you know how what it takes to make a move. That must've an days if not weeks to get all those angles and so. The tension is just excruciating. When you watch that final scene somebody some the greatest mustache work. I would say in any way how not only poirot by the and faro's iconic moustache is one thing but you got connor martin balsam rocking like pencil. Thin job On you all around and that should not be ignored and connery is being such an anti james bond. Just stuffy racist. He makes he. Does that joke about i was i was. I was yawning with with young. What's his name. He thought that the british should leave it. Can you believe that like he plays a country goes. Can you believe this indian gandhi. I mean come on so but but you're supposed to sympathize with him. It's oh god it's so fucking good. So where do you come down on the twenty seventeen recent remake of braun who somebody that. I respect a law. A lot of his films. Did it just not work for you. And why yeah. It just was too many. They added all this personal back story. Diplo which you don't need all the all. The character work you need of borrow. Is the way that our tiny his face before. He finally walks down that hallway at the end when he's made the decision that he's made and he looks at how everyone else's reacting but he realizes it's very much like john wayne and the searchers or jimmy stewart at the end of call northside seven seven seven. I've helped to bring some justice in the world. But i'm also not a part of it personally like there's something removed and my diminish because of that and that's all you need. You don't need all his picture of the woman then it gets broken. The guy's got damn so you know there is something very frustrating about watching it also. I thought that the the the when when the david suchet poirot series did their version of it. They did an amazing version of it. And had perot do some kind of make some surprising decisions without without ruining the faith of the original text he really They did some really cool and actually did way more realistic of what. It's like to be a train trapped in a snowdrift and you have to actually packard one in the same room or they all freeze to death and so that was really interesting. Yeah in the bronco. One just did and i love kenneth braun that his a. Why can't i think of the name that he doesn't amazing. Police series the swedish one. A wonder oh. My god is so good one of my favorites of his debt again. Very early against brilliant and also. I just quad row has to he really. I will give him this. He does nail the i m. Ocd to a fault. I'm ocd to a point where it negatively affects my life..

"That's kind of the. The central idea of the whole thing is just embrace your drek and if you embrace it hard enough you might find something amazing in again. One of the all-time great film performances is in one of the dumbest movies. Ever made was pretty stunning. Was on the west anyway. Now risen higher. Thanks to include me. Honestly you're like there must have been a meeting at new world where they were going and by the way there were consistent reviews going. It's stupid fucking monster movie. But michael moriarty my god. It's ebert lieber trivia was like you have to see this murari so there must have been like an hour meeting of. Do we do nascar pain like how. How do we pull this. They didn't do it but there must have been that discussion of we have a legitimate. We could hope over an oscar on this goddamn thing and they should have it. It's an oscar worthy performance. It's like daniel day-lewis in supporting role and leprechaun three well. How did he end up in that. What's on did did did he do. Resurfaces paul what's going on. So yeah what's what's your appetite. Generally four marathons. Movie theater marathons you. Have you ever done those. Like famed like thon. Twenty four hour things. Every time the button the cutie would happen. I was i was courtesy was always working. I've always always wanted to do those. I've done i've done an all nightmare to orpheum downtown. That wasn't in the nineties. I and then also in the ninety s. I did it all night. Marathon at the cinerama dome which was amazing. Beautiful prince. And i didn't want it to new beverly but i never was able to do but non especially i've wanted to do cutie fest at the at the Alamo i mean once the you know. Once the lockdown and safely we have a vaccine we can trust. I would love to go back to my that. Now it's weird. I grew up in the suburbs. I had no access to any kind of good art film or anything like that and now in my hometown of sterling virginia. There's a alamo draft house killing that. I could do and it's just trust me. Have you could have grown up with that. Have you been to a theater all of this. I haven't no. I would no. I would never good no. You can't aunt. I just i watch stuff on on tv. I'm trying to you know weirdly. I've i've gone down. I've gone really nice. I mean i'm very lucky. I have the criterion channel. And they did that whole Noir western thing summer. They just did a month last month. Seventies horror movies. So i was able to just all that great. Let's scare jessica to death and you know The brood and the crazies texas chainsaw that great golden age of american horror movies where it was about like america itself is part of the problem. It's just the rot. And the unease and the paranoia is is the monster so fucking great to watch so you did go seven days when asked you to pick a specific comfort movie. But it's certainly not seventies horror. It's one that i hadn't seen in a while. I revisited it last night. And there's lots of talk about them. I'm curious let's talk about your comfort movie. Tell us what you chosen. In brief while ios. I chose nine hundred. Seventy four is murder on the orient express. Sidney lumet hot off dog day afternoon. Serpico i'm going to say that i know and it's it's such great movie. Will you could just do high-end like you know a cozy british mystery films. The rest of his career. He was so good that it's still the best picture. Poirot sorry david suchet. I love you. But the albert finney is amazing including the fact that when our pending was during the movie he was also doing a play in the west end so he would do the play at night he would go home and sleep and they sent an ambulance to his house with two guys that would he would stay asleep. They put him on a stretcher. Put him in the back of ambulance quietly. Drive him to the studio and then start him into make he would wake up in the makeup. Just you can just get that extra sleep. Shoot for the day and then go to the play at night like just a just an absolute monster and A cast of just nothing but ringers. Nothing but ringers and It is a very cozy movie about a murder on a high end luxury train. The orient express the kelly coach but what was hidden in the movie That's doesn't it doesn't tell you that it's about it but it's also about its this whole way of living that's about to go away. It's post world war one. They're thinking maybe there's going to be another war that they mentioned a couple of times. There's rachel roberts plays kind of neo. Nazi anthony perkins's clearly closeted You know but everyone everyone is just. It's that repressive old victorian era. That's crumbling and they believed in the system of laws and closure. That completely betrayed them. So they've gotta take the law into their own hands and kill an american gangster that And again yes. It's a g. rated not horror movie except that the actual murder sequence the way that it's filmed is so fucking scary and disturbing like disturbing for a movie that has no cursing has no. I mean there's no blood there's no but the way they shoot the murder scene actually hearkens.

"I guess i mean you know. My my brother pointed out on twitter. You know now with the polar ice caps melting and the president trying to shut down the postal service. I think we owe kevin costner a big apology. Because he kinda called a couple of things in those movies and what was really tragic about those two movies back to back. Was the movie he made after. That is a movie. A western called open range. Which is a legitimately brilliant oscar. Were the film. But because cabinet. The name kevin costner had become this shorthand for a boy. No one went and saw it. And it's a it's a fucking brilliant movie. Yeah that's a good call. And he goes. He directed that one. He directed it. It's a great story. Like nonstop great performances. He's great in it. Duval's great annette. Benning is great. And it's just nonstop good right and but at the timer was like. Oh god another kevin costner. I can't and it's too bad because that was really really good. So segue into maybe not quite as ambitious failures You're doing this thing for her. Shout factory which is kind of like a movie marathon coming up right. I'm doing a twelve hour. That's again look. There's a lot of things that i miss. Because of the shutdown because of coronavirus everyone has personal things. I'm sure that they miss people. Miss you know getting to go to concerts. People miss getting to be out in a park all day. And just you know all that fun stuff but Or or going to a sporting event. I miss going to movies. I miss going to movies and especially this year. Halloween on a saturday night with the next day is sunday with an extra hour. The allnight marathons this year. Could have been epic and we missed all of them. So i tried to recreate that feeling. And i picked Shout factory really. Let me go deep into their volts. And they were they were. They were weirdly non-judgmental about what i picked. I pick someones. That are genuinely entertaining. Got penelope sirius' suburbia in there. I've got eat my dust. Which is a very underrated roger. Cormon rip off of smoking. The bandit where it was that there was that window the seventies where Safety was not a thing that was considered with stunt. They just basically kind of said. Let's fill miss and then everyone if anyone dies let's just run. Let everyone bolt. We don't have anyone here so there's some stunts in there's a stunt by the way in. There's early steven spielberg film. Called the sugarland. Express ms stunt at the end. Where a guy on top of a news van gets knocked with a car it said and if you watch that seems like i think that guy like broke. His pelvis like it looks. He goes down so hard and ugly and at the time. Just like i'm giving fifty dollars. Keep quiet But so there's eat my dust but then in the middle of it. Despite all these fund bad films i have. I did pick one called shriek of the mutilated because there has to be always in the movie marathon. There's got to be that one movie. Where the fascination is in watching that nothing fucking works like nothing works in this movie. They actually went for something they didn't even have. They didn't even have ambition to do anything great and they still couldn't even get there and there's something kind of beautiful about it took a while it is a my friend. nathan raman. He's a movie writer and pop culture critic. He has a term called The shitty miracle where a like look you can. Even great films have a couple of moments that don't quite work. Even should he films will have a moment. That works really. Oh wow but then every now and then a movie comes fucking nothing works. And that's actually really hard to pull off. And so when you see that like shriek of the mutilated on god. Damnit gotta give some credit and it's beautiful. I met you have really filled in. I'm familiar with some of these but most of these. Frankly i i consider myself a decent center filed but i kick myself for not never seen cue for instance i've heard about all dude q. The wing serpent is talking fascinating. That was to larry. Cohen film Rod and he was working on another roger corman film he got fired and so he wrote this movie in two days in his get his hotel room furniture two days or something cranked out. It is it is one of the dumbest claymation monster movies ever made with one of the best performances i've ever seen in a movie. Michael moriarty does the most intense method acting performance. You've ever seen I mean it will. It will blow you away. And there's a famous story where They showed the movie it showed. It can not in the prestige part of canvas another part the international filmar where you just show up like can i just sell this to singapore and make some money back that i spent so they screened at cannes and rex raid was on the audience. For some reason. I guess it was an afternoon. He had and he and he comes out of the theater and our cough sam's club is there and he's like i can't what is going on. You've got this amazing. Michael moriarty performance in the middle of all this drac and then goes drek was my i d like he was so proud of themselves. There's something so great about so. Yeah and i end. I end the marathon on that because that.

"It's taken a while. But i'm happy finally to have you on the podcast and there's always a lot to talk to you about it. You know this. This year's been insane. It's been kind of a pause for a lot of us. My sense from you is that you're a bit of a workaholic. How was how was like working. I like doing stuff. So how's this been for you. Have you taken a pause or have you read it up or what. I took a pause when the shutdown happened. Just because i didn't know what was going to be next. And i just was more concerned with like. How do i keep my daughter's school going. How do i you know. Make sure my family's saint make sure my parents are okay. So it's kind of focused on that. I wasn't really focused on work. And then it just got down to like well. My normal state of beings trying to create stuff. So i'm just going to keep trying to create stuff. I just pivoted into writing for comic books and writing stuff like that. So that's just what i've been doing now. I did zoom show a couple of weeks ago tried that out. So i'm just slowly you know Getting into that kinda grew. I guess like we've all regard depending on. How do i did what i used to do into this new paradigm. What some of us at works in zoom boxes. We can still do version of what we used to do. At least yeah So talk to. We're going to geek out a little bit Today about some of your favorite movies from your favorite movie. Some of your favorite comfort movie. But i want to go back. I to how you formed. Your movie tastes as a kid. Did you have a was it from your parents. Was it from a friend from a sibling. Who was the influence or in your life that helped chart your path as a movie lover. You know i grew up in the seventies. So i'm of the generation that are influenced her was purely chance. There wasn't really that the structure in place for movie freaks to be dipping into the. Oh go see this. This is a really early one was a i mean i guess there was a book called the golden turkey awards which the first place that i've ever heard about. You know people like ed wood. Yup stuff like that and then And again a lot of the movies that they were saying were shitty in this Book sounded fascinating to me. You know they mean they're the golden turkey awards lists stuff like pat garrett and billy the kid and the texas chainsaw massacre and pink flamingos which are all just brilliant. Brilliant fucking movies So you know. I i that but but really before that. It was whatever. I just happen to come across on tv or just random and by the way. That's what makes a lot. I think the first wave of real cult movies like plan nine from outer space for instance they really do have a cult quality because they because there was no structure. They really were shown at two. Am on some local station and someone will watch it and years later. Meet someone else who had also randomly seen it. And they would share their thoughts on it and it really did have a truly a viral Second life But then you know net then I think the the structure of the infrastructure Kinda fell into place in the eighties and nineties and it became an industry of finding cult stuff and then some stuff was prematurely. Tried people tried to make stuff cult. Like i remember showgirls. There was a very aggressively early cult around that. Then just kind didn't stick. It's just not a great movie. It just isn't there. There's like there's fiasco bad which was like wow. I can't believe this is happening. And then there's just bad it's just bad. Yeah like a a true cult. Movie has to take time. You cannot force it. I have a soft spot. I don't know about you and this doesn't necessarily fit some of the ones that you're going to mention. I think in a little bit. But i saw smoke for like the epoch failures for like the hundred fifty million dollar was never a better one two punch from me. Then when kevin costner did waterworld and the postman in back to back years it was. Here's what was weird. Why waterworld and the postman. Art are massively epic failures that both start off with. It also shows you. You can have the grain of an interesting idea. There's really interesting ideas and those movies. They just don't execute them and all the stuff with how they work out. Like how kevin costner makes that boat. Work in. Waterworld is kind of brilliant thought and design and character work. Were put into those sequences. But it's in the middle of all this other silliness that you just like i. Why didn't you just put a little more work in the other shit. So that we wouldn't be you know. Constantly being taken out of it. And then the postman. Which again. I mean it. It's a little slow and weird. But i remember seeing it. I remember very specifically going to see that. At the humber up in san francisco with greg. Proops dave anthony and we were laughing our asses off the whole way through. But now we're in twenty twenty and that movie seems to take place in the aftermath of the riots over a disputed election and and Will patents character is kind of a kind of a proud boy. Patriot rare type guide. That like so. There's weird and also pointed if tom petty shows up out of nowhere out of the who knows. My main was trying to be an influence..

Shatner wrote over to his house on a motorcycle parts of the driveway read the script in the driveway but counted that he had more lines and Linda. Great. which makes if that is a I don't even think that's true. I wanted to be true and if it is true, it makes me love him even more. With Harlan Ellison and we. Oh. When you really Lakeway Linda Allison Wonderland Lens House I'll tell you. About. Ellison Wonderland have not had the play. With the secret rooms and the hidden pause. Weird. Yeah they're never.

One of my favorite Russ Meyer actresses that was shot almost entirely inside ellison wonderland back in the sixties. No Shit. So if you want to see what this house looks like, go watch the Godson by William Rossler I'm writing all this down. Yeah and and and and you have to anti Larry Cohen's bone and and God Damn Harlan Ellison gets to bury his face between who she guards breasts. I remember forever.

Had just the right answer you have to and it's getting late in Dave's here. All right wonderful. Do Do you want it quickly tell the the day the clown cried story because I know Gilbert will appreciate it God. Okay. Very very quickly I came in possession of the shooting script for the day the clown cried which I sat down and read this way back in the ninety, five, ninety six and it's a Goddamn bunker script because it was John O'Brien and simply Denton Oh. Yes and they wrote a very serious Krypton and he. Could see where he swooped in his comedy pass like the scene where he's pissing ice literally pissing ice. So I boil it down to like the scenes that really worked and I would do these invite only stage readings of it with like David Cross and you know Jon Glaser Stephen Colbert narrated at one time We did them in New York and and then I got busted because the the La weekly caught wind of it and did a whole like pick of the week You know the day the clown cried, and then we were served with season desist papers at the theater. We're going to do it at in Santa Monica I thought they were from. Jerry. Lewis. But it turns out. It's from this producer who had the right to the original script who wanted to do it and at the time he was like. I have got I'm not going to let a bunch of Goddamn nobody's read this thing in some shit ask theater in Santa Monica. I've got Chevy chase interested in this and and that night you know he was screaming at me and then I and Bob Odenkirk was in the cast and then so we did a whole show out being shut down and Bob and David Sketch about the Guy Finding, out about it and my favorite line was Chevy Chase was born to play a clown who marches children and do an attack. Was So Goddamn hilarious. So. Yeah just. Had All these like you know it was just. It was one of those very surreal and then you got to meet Jerry for that. Well Yeah. Wisely doing these the the the year that Henny youngman died they brought in Jerry was wondering and all these young Comedians to up and read when of Henny youngman jokes in a line like, yes. Well as a tribute which I love Henny. YOUNGMAN I. Have you listened to one of his albums recently I'd forgotten how fast pace on it is a machine gun of jokes remember as no breathing room I once went out to lunch with many young men really, and it was great. 'cause he that's who he was but it's such a people keep forgetting like the hear his. His jokes isolated? Yeah. Okay. It's a funny joke I. Don't see why this guy but it's not the. The pacing is so relentless that while you can't keep up with I, it's like it's like. Death by a thousand cuts after a while it just becomes almost exciting. How funny is because it's these little extra just building and building, and it's amazing listener. So and they were trying out and then they ended up cutting the sketch Jerry sitting there in his always wearing. Shorts. and Zip up jacket but he but on his desk, he had that the rumor was he had that big silver briefcase, the bulletproof briefcase that had the reels for the day. The clown cried in it that was always carrying around I'm like I should fucking grab that and just run. Grab it and run, and then I will be chased around there'll be helicopters but back, you just get this do a thing.

Judah friedlander for the part of. Toby. RADLOFF. Harvey's best friend. They went with. With Judah. Judah was good. It was good. But he looked just like us again, that's as far as your imagination. Something different to. needed. Look exactly does. This. Vaccine. These. Patent. Can you tell me? Well, that's also mean kind of making fun of myself when emeritus points out all the time when I'll just start going off on these. Weird. Kind of riffs about pop culture in movies where. She's like you're talking to your daughter doesn't care about this when show watch some movie or read some graphic novel. Now, who might well, you know interestingly enough, there's three different like district gambling about this. All of this useless knowledge, it's in my brain America's Kinda go. No one knows what you're talking about right now. What are you doing? So you know I thought it'd be funny to make video that way of my my horrible parenting teaching techniques. It'll be great if she ever takes a college course on Trivia Dan, that's my time to shine. Well, I sorry, there's this happens. This is one of the things about radio wanted to go back and there's something I should have asked you earlier and I didn't. So I'm just going to circle back. About again, that that first year. After Michele died 'cause I. Did you did you turn to comedy at all during that time to help you and Alice or was it just? A no-go zone. For me, it was just being present with her and and just trying to like read to her and things like that. As far as comedy was concerned I didn't do comedy for. I think like I didn't even think of doing Santa like four or five months, and then it just got to like I don't know what else to do. And I remember I. Went didn't open MIC thinking. I'm just GonNa, do this so that it'll be so horrible that I'll remind myself that I shouldn't be doing comedy, but it was such a release for me. To go up in talk, and again, it was like this researching of the life force. So I kept. Going, and then as far as watching comedy, you know what? I really needed after. I was. After Michelle Pass in all my life I needed absolute absurdity turned to comedy like there was a lot of Tim and Eric a lot of Eric on Sunday, just nonsensical. I mean abstract weirdness. That's what I wanted I wanted. That's what the because because nothing made sense to me. It was actually comforting to see people embracing the nonsensical especially and I remember I kept listening to a lot of early. Steve. Martin albums, Let's get small comedy is not pretty because. I, he was just pure absurdity. and. It was so comforting to me. That makes total sense to me, I. Feel like. When when reality has ventured into the absurd like the. With is absurdity I've felt that law in the pin this pandemic actually. I mean again, that's why I think a lot of the the best comedy that's coming out of this pandemic is the absolute absurd. I mean it although in a weird way I'm sure you've talked about this to you know th this this new superstars Sarah Cooper who thinks the trump's have? What's so brilliant about her? Is, that her joke is she she's almost playing someone who's trying to make trump look better which only like highlights the absurdity of what he's saying like if she was there pulling faces in being goofy like look at this dummy, you would go okay. Your lip synching. But the fact that she's she's almost looks like she's playing someone who's on trump's media team like, okay. He said something really dumb today. Let's have you let you're really you. You're very intelligent put together. Let's have you do it and it makes it look ten times worse. It's so brilliant. We, talking this hour with Patton. oswalt. The actor and comedian. Will. Come back. This is on point. This is on point I'm making a chocolate bardy. Today, we are talking with Patton Oswalt. He's the actor and comedian known for his many film and TV roles including the voice of remmy and Disney Pixar ready-to-eat.

Oswalt, and he's executive producer of begun in the dark, which is the six part HBO Docu Series Based on the book of the same name that explores his late wife Michelle McNamara's investigation into the golden state killer, and that's on HBO I. Wanted To get all that in patent because it's your long and rich career. Here is one of the reasons why we're getting all of this social media love for you here. Jamie bear cloth, bear, Clo-. Sorry, Jamie. I said your name. Wrong. But Jamie says the painting, the patron saint of nerds. I will watch everything with this guy in it everything. has been fantastic. Jamie. Good luck. Thank you. Wow. I'll take it. Out Totally, take it and Jin says totally enjoying the discussion about death and comedy. Thank you for this interview and my God, what a weird sentence. Totally join discussion of death and comedy. I. Think you just the complexity of thought amongst our listeners here. Okay, and then how about this one social distancing Stephanie says, thank you patent for sharing Alice's words. My mom died about a week ago and I found this very comforting album. Think she's referencing Alice's words about being the living memory of piano that you lost. So people are people are listening Patton, you not I also wanted to say that Earlier in the show and replace some of the clips. Of you and actually featuring and I laughed out loud. I have to say I. Just like feeling that belly laugh. It was kind of a surprise. I, was like Oh, that's what this feels like I haven't had this feeling in a long time. I. Do feel like all of us. Have had this sort of collective. Holding of our breasts or or or like suspended animation for many months now, and he was something as simple as the release of laughter actually is coming as a surprise. Yeah. I. Mean. We've been whistling past the graveyard for so long on a terrible analogy us right now, but you know with all this death there, I mean it, it's. I think. The dead would want us to laugh. You know it's the. It's the It's the tyrants who don't like the sound of laughter. So you know to go, we're going to live. We're GONNA fix this a lot of times that starts with laughter to not to sound dismissive of any of the horror that's going on around us but it it is an it's such state to state, but it's a release valve if you don't have that I, think people go insane. Yeah. That's what makes it so subversive actually also..

We have a lot of Pete's picks on this episode including the one that's. That's been keeping me alive during the quarantine and getting the nutrition that it's hard for me to get as I. I don't know if you're like me, but I haven't been going to the grocery store. As much is coach Uva. CATAVA is a plant based born in the jungle superfood drink mix that is a loaded with nutrient rich superfoods that have been revered by tribal cultures for centuries. What I always point people to. If they want to try and eat more plant based, but they don't know where to start. Also a lot of people eat it because it's a good meal replacement keeping you full for four or five hours, which is completely true I can say for me personally you drink it. It's healthy. It's low calorie, and it keeps you full for a long time, so people see health benefits, obviously from that I drink it and love it and make smoothies with it and drink it on its own water, which is unbelievable that it's good enough that it's good in just water, because it gets me high from all the.

"Tip. I'm well Whitman Man. This is small change but I I think I know why. Would you explain the reasoning? Which is On CONAN? You go the organic farm. The creepy hippy cult family. That's growing this. We're on the special UGO. There's a short novel about the Hippie. Organic farm where the growing my amaranth flakes so sort of shorter. I wanted shorter and I didn't want to be a family because the family I realized it sounded clumsy because it like maybe there actually is a family but the novel about just the farm itself as an objective that was clearly made up but families like is there a family behind this. I don't know so just by removing family. It made it sound even more bullshit. Corporate the fish store you add fisheries does not show up and CONAN. I assume that was something sort of riffing. We're telling the story to remember what he liked about that scene way the fish about that. They met at a fish concert. Because they're gonNA GONNA. That's interesting there too. Originally was we met at a grateful dead concert and I realized the grateful dead has aged out in terms of places a references people understand anymore like the people that used to meet at great conscious of not to sound more. But they're kinda dying out into but when I changed fish contract the crowd All facts degeneration. That gets that now. It's like the reason that I remember At the at Universal City at the Amusement Park At city walk they would have Beetlejuice walking around the blues brothers and Laurel and hardy and then I remember there was at one some of the late nineties they discontinued Laurel and hardy because nobody knew they were. They didn't know what was going on as fat guy in a Hitler Mustache and then some weird skinny dude. What what is this like? It's just sad. It happens but it was a really weird moment. Where a couple nights I did it with a grateful dead concert and it got like okay when it came to this Bitch Contra. Everyone went nuts and I realized. Oh that's eight that aged out now. Grateful dead doesn't have doesn't land like it used to imagine people get it but they can't they don't know the person now Fisher like got they go fish. The everyone knows a guy or a girl in their office that you like. They're they're nice but they. I took my gun. I made the mistake of going to the company. Picnic gave me a ride and they played this walking tape and never again in the special. You say the saddest John Cheever story on Say New Yorker article so in general your opinion I feel like your approach and your thinking on references has evolved over the time for comedy. What you're thinking here. What do you think generally about? I think for some reason I was on a judge. Schieber Jag I was reading a bunch of articles about his life and then reading some of the short stories about he was just such a train wreck but but on a vacillating. And there's just so much goddamn tragedy. All of his stories that An also that I just I did it one night like. That's what I was thinking of. I was reading on the plane on the way to the Gig or something and then it got a huge laugh and I think it gets a he'd lap because some people know who John Chiba risk but also this is going to sound really lame. Cheever's funny comedy it just it just like it's like doodle or like even if they don't know who it is John Three No that lame but I I was genuinely saying it because I had been reading a bunch of mine. God how how did the New Yorker have any subscribers after like Howard Howard? This garbage is not committing suicide every week. After reading this stuff you know In in the last section there's a there's a really interesting to me structural difference. I'm I'm CONAN. You just described the back label sort of the way you do the the the first time but in the special you do it as a scene. You're reading the back label person. What what does that do to the jokes? That's that's different because my daughter has just come down. She's about to June call for school I'm doing an interview with vulture. It's a really cool. Online magazine were dissecting. One of my bits got here comes all right our.

They never put the dishes away correctly. There's a certain wing. You can just treat it like tetris. Game don't just put a dish dangling takes four rows than you have three spoons on the top Oh would you describing what it is about dishes? That's you consider it trigger sort of organizational parts of your brain. It is because it's like the you're looking at all of these disparate shapes and sizes. And you've got them all fit and a Lotta Times with story or a comedy bit. It's all these differing thought. Some of which looked at each other. How do you make it all make sense? So the dishes are like a symbol of that. And it's like it works that muscle in my brain that I can then apply to other concepts. So you know a big baking dish than I've got three little small condiment dishes how to get them all to fit the best and also sorta way said. I know the way the water is going to be. They all cleaned off Speaking of a specific Phrase do you remember coming up? A Sorghum Farms Amaranth flakes. Were there other options? What do you what was as dry? I don't remember again.

N. D. N. On them that's like a standard that everyone thought it sounded like an economic thing or a navy thing. It's a prop masters joke. Those letters Stanford goes nowhere. Does nothing more gun done? And that's like a thing that they have they kind of make fun of it a little bit with galaxy quest like there's no point in any of these designs so whenever you see that you'll see that in a Lotta In Science Fiction G. N. D. N. means so but it looks cool. It looks a little slap it on there because looking they're like yeah. I'm sure that means like gamma neutron drive. No nowhere does nothing away.
