Bye. Bye Thanks, get off the board. Oh, well, we don't like you Enjoy help Enough for nothing Now for nothing, you know My thing is there are two things going on, you know, the alphabet community I still I still stand by this and this is just me. It's just me I feel like a lot of a lot of lifestyle a lot of the things they're forcing in upon us But at the same time they're within their rights and they should really really consider, you know Not being licensed to shoot us because this is not going away that that man right there. That's just one of many. Yes Oh, yeah, like for this also hear me out like we all see these people wave in Trump flags, we've been American flags and unfortunately now as a As long as I live now I see the American flag more as a as a white supremacist flag now more than anything else At this point and I know people might take an issue with that statement But you cannot tell me differently like these people where does preach you just like so hardcore that it borderlines on No, they can't tell you differently because it's not their experience That's why they can't tell you differently or that's why they feel like they could tell you differently But I agree with what you're saying. Like honestly, it's like yeah, I never heard a person over a Trump flag I've never heard I dealt with people who wore MAGA hats in my my job I have I am never seen anything to him. I was being professional kept it moving. That's it I never go out my way to do something so negative as in hurting somebody let alone killing somebody Over a flag that represents them because that's that we can't it ish right there real talk I feel like honestly you won't represent something.

As long as I'm in the fridge of my friends or whatever and I and that's where we all agree on that same page Yeah, yeah, don't take it out Honestly, I feel like this is like that. I feel like what happened back in the day been a Jim Crow So rights era As a parallel to what's going on today with that lady That's that's their version of making a great again the Jim Crow stuff Like yes bring it back would be killed like white people were killed Yeah in supporting civil rights making sure like you have the ability to vote without being intimidated by the KKK Able to go to school to be intimidated, you know, because of integration stuff like that and lo and behold almost 50 60 years later It's like yo, it wasn't the same ish. Yeah, shout out to Robert right Who's been you know? imploring People to make change, I'm sorry younger crowd. Yes He's very he's putting the battery in Gen Z's back in you know And the awesome Millennials like yo go out there and keep fighting the fight never dies You're not wrong, but there's some sin people that you can't take The I would call the teachings or their fellow peers out the heads, but here's the thing though It got so badly Even kids were raised were conservative or are going to vote against them because they have no platform But that's not go ahead without yet. Let me finish this or Sorry, I just suspect the killer who has not been publicly identified flight to sealant foot Well, it's found by sheriff's through PDs near the Carlton store where he was friendly shot in the confrontation authority said his sheriff's office said the assailant was armed with a handgun and refused orders to drop the weapon a Attempted to contact the suspect a lethal force encounter occurred and the suspect was pronounced dead on scene according to the statement for the sheriff's department No liberties were injured during the incident Carlton was gunned down outside her store around 5 p.m. On Saturday on Friday according to the sheriff's department office through further investigation Detectives learned the subject had made several disparaging remarks about a rainbow flight I stood outside the store before shooting Carlton according to the sheriff's office The investigations ongoing in the sheriff's office Leads no further details authorities said that anyone with information about the shooting or to contact homicide investigators immediately Our stores website Carlton said that she began her career in the medicine industry when she was a teenager She attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena before embarking a career in fashion design Eventually Carlton joined Kenneth Cole Production almost from its inception in 1982 I worked for a company for more than 15 years become an executive according to the website of a pension for longevity She has been married to the same man for 28 years and is the mother of a blended family of nine children Them youngest being identical girls while Carlton and her husband have a home in Los Angeles neighborhood of studio city the couple owns a 1920s fisherman's cabin on Lake Arrowhead the lake arrowhead LGBTQ organization posted a message on his Facebook page honoree Carlton and scrubber her as a strong supporter of LGBTQ rights Yeah, it's sad man. So wait, so this movement is not LGBTQ, but she you know, she's a supporter supporter. Yeah, and this this This SOB, yeah, this POS I'm sorry came out came out to the front of her over a building and shot her because he didn't like the flag So what like I said before I'm not gonna go to your house and shoot you you have a Trump flag I'm gonna hurt you for having a confederate like, you know, I think you're gonna be a POS Now I think you're straight up a POS But I'm not gonna kill you. That's the difference. You mean you I'm not gonna harm you over it Unless you try to kill me first I'm gonna kill you and this this is why they got to be strapped up because even though as logical as you're thinking is Those people ain't trying to hear it. No, of course like that So so the best way for them to hear that is for them to you know, catch that bullet. Yeah I hate that. I'm not trying to condone violence but it got so ridiculous in this country that we you have the choice but to be Prepared because you just don't know like look what happened over in Alabama The man's security guard almost got stopped out and killed they they were saying that they were waiting on the boat Almost like 30 to 40 minutes per hour The boats Wow, and they don't want to and the thing is even crazy is the boat is ran by the city It's not lady. Are you breaking any police laws? You're breaking city ordinance? Yep Wow And you said that it was a smart idea to stump up an old yeah black dude And they said that you know, they've had these issues before and they they've actually went on the boat Bolts out the way, but no issue of the man said move your boat But you don't move your boat and you and you're there and you beat on the man They deserve what they got Every aspect is a word. Have you seen her mugshot that do like Squidward? She gets that's what they that's what they all got that that that had it coming Like you're not gonna stop this man from doing his job. All right It's just it's just like I think is like, you know people have something to say about this About the violence of it, but sometimes it is the only answer facts to be honest with you facts There's no other way around it. You know, there is no Utopian so like that any type of freedom has come at the hand of bloodshed Dying At this point as a black community we had no choice but to act accordingly like the guys didn't Have them at this point because the only way for you to get stop impeding our lives something killing us Stop in, you know doing violent acts against us because we have to act We had a show that we're not nothing mess around with anymore. We're not we are not our parent generation No, but we are our ancestors and we will mollywop you if we have to amen reach on it. I'm sorry I won't man. Give me sir my boy I Fly so like they might be doing this to miss Carlton and her family of not nine children and her husband I can know this to them and even the director Paul Feig But she was a costume designer and wires one of his movies. They she's oh, yep Paul Feig director of bridesmaids and Ghostbusters Wow, they work she worked with him Wow, and it's like this is a tragedy. It is like she was a good friend and It's a loss like hate hate and this is what he does he it's such a strong strong thing. It's like a cancer so it'll make you do the most Disgusting things humanly possible. That's right. That's why I don't like a lot to the order duration does not I don't like list so generation much the poo say I don't care there's only some few older people I could say I could listen to that's one of those older my grandmother and Me a quick PSA I Want to say happy birthday to my grandmother? She hit them the ripe or age of 94 years old she is still Coherent and still snappier and still can have a full comedy I can totally for two hours if I wanted to very good and I have to hold back on what I say It doesn't matter what kind of words are you she just you can still speak and it's blessing because there's some old folks That hit was he like 60 70 No, no, no, no sure you know 94 and to still carry on a conversation and that's like what you say and then nothing that I could talk us, you know It's dope. She had a moment like that. We love it. No, it's clocked So, yeah, you got a wall so yeah, this is um, this is something light, you know not as I'm serious more so stats and shout out to Inter Miami FC for winning there. Oh, they're on fire right now. They're cut recently and stuff like that You know a lot of moving parts Mr. Beckham and his you know all suited out then, you know bringing messy over and This ties into like what's been going on so far with them. So I want to say something too as well Messy is now empowering United States soccer by himself Everywhere he goes Messy me it's so it's sold out dude. There's something all right now I'm I know but I mean like they went from the worst team in MLS to the one that they're on fire Even when they went to Nashville recently and the Nashville stands were full to the top Yeah, well messy come over here playing soccer is like LeBron going any stadium. It's it's sold out for LeBron. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah Yeah Oh my god LeBron playing it's just it's just a different caliber a player influence star power That's why when it comes to like the pace the pace gauge pay You know wage scale. Yeah Guys like LeBron MJ Kobe. They were all they were all underpaid. Oh, absolutely Oh, yeah, absolutely Tom Brady underpaid. I think I think I'm Just starting out I'm saying we look at the pay scale wage for their economic impact when they go to these stadiums and arenas. Mm-hmm There's levels. No, no, no, you're absolutely you're you're absolutely right It's not it's not even just and they're just their field that they perform at an elite level it's it's also the also the things that That give them these opportunities like all these endorsements and stuff like that because even the whole clip I was watching but even the whole Nike situation, you know, if you give in if you give in LeBron James like a billion-dollar Contract or lifetime for life. How much does he really do generate for you? Yeah, that's that that's that's the scary question That none of these dudes ever want everyone asked him. Yeah I'm sorry, but um, so the headline is with final Messi playing soccer in the US single game ticket prices serves by more than One thousand seven hundred percent. So if it tickles like four bucks, you probably like forty. No No, one thousand so much four hundred four hundred prior for a ticket was crazy, but that's insane okay, so soccer superstar Lionel Messi moved to Major League Soccer has made an impact on ticket sales as Prices for late season games in the US have surged by over seventeen hundred percent on the second dairy market compared with last year Messi signed a blockbuster contract with club into Miami in July for 5050 to 60 million per year, which includes equity stake in the team He also signed an undisclosed revenue sharing agreement with Apple TV and adidas Because I think Apple TV is streaming their games. Mm-hmm directly for interval on all MLS games. I think I think is mainly for Sorry for into Miami, sorry, I think I think yeah, I think it's I think it's structured that way I guess because you know I mean I mean that I guess that's as close as that he would have gone compared to the those deals that they were that one of them Saudi Arabia clubs was offering. Uh-huh. I close to bid I think this is a better deal because like because yes fake you got stay you got the annual funds and Also, I guess because of the viewership you get sick in that too. Yeah, good. So I think that's I think that's really special Um So Messi's on Messi's emergence in the u.s Created a surge of interest in the team and MLS which isn't commonly considered among the world's top-tier leagues in terms of overall Tyler do overall talent What a difference a player makes man. I'm telling you. Oh, absolutely. Absolutely If you find the right player, that's the thing the right player the right resume and all the other pieces around Um Right cuz easy much of impact like when back home went to the LA Galaxy was a different thing They're also different players and stuff like that. I think I will say this Beckham's Celebrity and star power paved the way for these type of doors Yeah Because because from a from a footballing talent standpoint for all those for all the people that know That that no European football and stuff like that. He's not the most talented of The lot yeah, even even from his generation, but in terms of what he did at an elite level There's this does he's second to none true, but like he opened the doors I think I think for him it started the minute he got with um, he got with Victoria Beckham. Yeah That's when the rock stardom elevated for him and somebody even though he was still professional It wasn't he was on a different level versus his peers and and all that other stuff So I will say him coming over doing what he did Controversy or not open the doors for what mess he's doing right now. You're right. I'll give you that. Um Cuz everybody their mama's like like celebrating this dude every night Bro a rock concert. That's how deep it is in that stadium But it but honestly, I think it's elevated to new plates, especially after he won the World Cup That right there man that that one that was the one he won a Premier League Cup He won the World Cup Imagine he wins in his first year. Don't MLS plus fuck It'll be the best the greatest soccer player of all time. You're already is though in a lot in a lot of people's eyes he is Three crowns nobody has ever won three crowns Pretty well, he has already accomplished already Easy is the greatest plan. I mean, I mean for some people even before he won that World Cup People already had him as as to go only for Every four years to come back And try to do it again and again and again. He did like three times. Yeah, that's what makes it so special So let me see Oh six 2010 2014 2018 2022 so so this was his fifth World Cup And to get it you're lucky if you get to the fifth Yeah Your problem is over so yeah, yeah only hanging on your athlete prom for so long so for him to do what he did 35 years or 34 35 years old to play that well at the highest Level of comes just don't get this twisted. But anybody tells you the World Cup is still the bar. Yeah play like that at his age Is incredible you got Killian bop a back there? Hounding you down. Yeah 20 minutes try like yo, it's it's me or them. Don't worry about I got you. Yeah every now and then I watch those highlights Bro, I get chills. You understand There was up to zero there was up to zero and bossing the game for like 75 minutes Yeah, and then and then and then one of the defenders gives up the penalty Killian buries a penalty and the two minutes after he gets the ball back in one time volleys it and it makes it 2-2 and Then he goes to extra time and then messy being aware that okay This guy's been missing a whole lot of good chance just in case he missed this one I could you know Put the ball in and go up 3-2 and they give up another penalty which shouldn't have happened, but they get the penalty Anyways, the last one Killian beat this keeper three times on penalties. Yeah But I will say who's your mama? I will say this daddy Both me. Yes. I will say this if Emmy Martinez does not make that last play before extra time is over Yep, the game is there's there's it's over I Still get you playing sensation of the goalkeeper. No, he Oh my god, so The messy signing subscriptions to ml season pass and Apple TV have double according to into Miami owner Jorge Moss and to Miami's Instagram a cast going from 1 million to 14 million followers according to the Hero Yeah, at the man at the man for messy branded jerseys have been so strong that MLS officially online So has pushed off delivery orders until I say Season November mind you right? Yes. Yeah, I think so. Yes the ends in November. Yeah Bro they went to supermarket anyone is trying to get that was just surrounded I can't even get some cereal out here. I can't go to Publix. I'll be surrounded by these people I think he did go to Publix and shop. They're likely is that what I think it is? Yeah That's what I think it is messy mess Hey, I'll stick out the pitch invader. He needs me kill from from home games the average the average list price on the secondary market from from $152 to eight hundred sixty four dollars I have So I get to see a game on a regular now, I guess so I'm lucky me. Thank you Verizon they even have a whole a whole break that old chart of the messy effect. I Bet you right now. Let's start at some of this right now. Okay, bring it down music prices the US Open cup semi-final was eighty seven dollars to see a game with him playing Cincinnati 650 check this out Let me put in New York the New York rebels which stayed in was in Jersey, right? Yeah, the average ticket price last year was 90 bucks It's not cost one thousand six hundred simple dollars to see him in New York. Yep, and in Los Angeles Yeah 137 it now cost two thousand dollars to see him over in LA and Atlanta was one sixteen cost four ninety four That's in Orlando City was ninety seven dollars and now going to seventeen hundred dollars in Chicago. It was seventy five Forty-six Charlotte was 124 and now seven sixty six. These are just a these are prices, right? Yep before and after what a difference a year makes what a difference a year make holy shit Holy shit crazy right guys box office, man. Yeah All right, I'm not UMC things were absurd man, let me get mine off and then now we'll get to another they need to be though they need to be But I believe that alone we don't talk about that Okay, so I didn't get to talk about this other the day but I think this is important so I'm gonna get with it right now, so Is anybody here has anybody in this room been to LA no, oh god, it's still the mission I thought you went to LA said what is the California? Okay, as anybody have been to Vegas. No, I've been to both Let's you party guy. Oh, hey, look at this guy Hollywood Hey, no more party in LA Are you guys done with the jokes you keep it keep it come LA I love LA The game I'm cool No more party LA please, okay, so the reason why I say that now is that LA to Las Vegas It should be a hop, skip it and jump away, but it takes some time two hours Well, I'll break it all down So apparently a high-speed train is connecting LA to Las Vegas and will set to open in 2027 So getting from LA to Vegas will now be changed over Flying is quick. It takes an hour and 15 minutes, but it's very expensive depending what kind of ticket you may get By car is the longest but the cheapest takes an average of four hours But bus is the really cheapest cheapest It can charge anywhere between $25 and $45, but it's a five-hour trip Oh the next but by train it's going to be a whole new experience traveling Bright line West has striked the deal with the high-speed rail labor coalition to work on the nation's Repeat the nation in America the nation in America. We don't have high-speed trains. No, I don't make Japan make any sense Why you know why we know why we know why but this are making it. Oh, well, yeah Well contain we'll have the nation's first high-speed rail project an all-electric train will connect a station from Apple Valley, California Which is east of LA to Las Vegas The trip will take a whopping 85 minutes Why losing roughly 200 miles per hour to and from LA? This is why we need high-speed trains But you told me yeah, we went from a plane was the fastest but the most expensive yes to Imagine the speed that just be any less. Yeah, just about 85 minutes 85 minutes for the plane right to your place is our 15. So it's roughly Our in 25 you see but the trim be 10 more minutes extra what I'll show I could take But I'd do the train honestly. Yes right there. You're telling me that we could have sat here All right, I want to LA and say oh man, I'm take the train it's a debate called the plane We fast but we expensive but you remember you have to go two hours early to check in exactly All through the TSA check. Yeah, but this one you don't have to do that Construction on the 10 billion pot 10 billion dollar project will create 35,000 jobs Hey, hey bright lights on the right-of-way agreement that allows to build a 100 and 35 mile long corridor in the middle of I 15 on the California portion of the railway This agreement allows can tell us our Caltrans to oversee construction in the maintenance of the line But it's also going to be built which I didn't know they were gonna do which I do like in Addition to the rail line. It's a real line to connect between San Bernardino Downtown LA Palmdale and Victor Valley to have access to the high-speed train going from Los Angeles to Vegas So essentially they're making a separate train line or a separate, you know subway system That's connect those three places together. They're telling me Once again, it's big because Cal doesn't have that, you know, I know I'm here right now America how much my tablet right now one true. Yeah, that's a tab. That's fine Good bright line currently operates along a 70-mile stretch in South Florida Connecting Miami to West Palm Beach the first of its kind to travel from LA to Vegas roughly daily 36,000 people travel between the two seas by car per year overall, which I thought was crazy 50 million people travel between the two cities combined with car bus and plane Crazy 50 million people well anyone early travel between Las Vegas and Cali Wow per year a lot of emissions If we do the train, yeah And this is what problem is because a lot of Republicans halted all these products because why big oil Because we can't have you know, this train cut this train situation F of our profits Every other country major first world country have high-speed rail rates We don't China has high-speed railways we don't Japan has it Europe to Europe as well. Yeah, you're ready my surprise. Oh, I'm gonna ask that question I'm sure you know, they have because it's easy to travel Korea has it. It's not for you. Well, I really want to say I know any country title casting a bit about it. I'm like, this is the most amazing. I've seen my life I know you like these manic. It's a magnetic. It's like basically it's using the post woman Those the north and south They gotta make sure that no one gets that coward that corridor because that trains I can stop If you're small Joe standing in front of that damn you splatter No, I do funny. I think I have multiple station. They got more to say because there's no way into one cuz I can It's one oh now cuz I'm not late from LA to Las Vegas I know boy, I can't I can't man. I only have one training Yeah, I have like one training for like that one hour and 20 Well, it's probably have multiple rails that you can travel along Okay They say cuz you cannot have like one train behind it cuz I cannot manage to stop that train Take that stream fighting stopping like like 10 mile back. Well, oh, yeah, but to get from Cali To Las Vegas in 85 minutes. That's wild, but I haven't get on the plane Save so much time What the price is though? I don't know what's the price yet? Well, you pop a high-speed train sandwich across for a high-speed train fare That can't matter that probably that definitely cost you best not to be empty average won't be expensive But that'll be empty a type of spent call prices hundred or something like that probably probably Do the ones in Florida high-speed? So Did you do? Your phone apparently a high-speed train ticket, right From you know that will make cost $200 to fly over like round trip will cost 75 bucks Wow Wow round trip Best believe that these airlines It is not over it is far from over trust me they're gonna they're gonna figure this out It's like the water the coal water free engine. Oh, man, the guy died somehow Well, yeah, man, so I'm actually can't wait I want to survive because I want to go on the high-speed trail rain just from Cali to flow I'll have to go to Japan Vegas, but I'm gonna go to Japan. No, man I would love to be can now if I want to go to Cali. It's right there. I can do right there I don't gotta get on the plane cuz you know I hate I've always wanted to do a trip from from Vegas to Cali, but that's an extra plane ticket Because driving there is not feasible. You could do it takes forever. Yeah So basically start out you believe around 12 you don't get the till for and when I even hit the thing though I said four hours without traffic Imagine the traffic on six hours six to eight. No, no Traffic is not the way Tell you skill show tell you know that traffic is killer I'm telling you five hours in trouble five lanes with the cars backed up crazy parking lot You think crossing the bridge up here is bad in New York? That's why Colby wanted to that's a cop to travel back and forth my god it was it was more cost-effective man I mean, I mean doesn't make sense. You're right doesn't make you do parking lot Pippen and How we travel? Yeah, man, that's how real it is. All right, so shout out to my man Grants the producer remember gets put us from the from the beat battle. I'm Walt I Think so. Yeah. Yes.

"Are you laughing? You don't really believe that. I do. I believe I believe I said that. Mitch is next. Sir Paul. I like that. What if I could ever be a sir? Well, go over to England. And king Charles. Well, I have a Mitch. I have legitimate English blood in me, so I think I could my grandfather was born in London. One of my grandfathers. So it was. Well, okay. If you feel comfortable insulting my leg grandfather by comparing him to Jack the Ripper, then I'm going to say fine. Thank you very much. My grandfather looked a little bit like Jack the Ripper. He died when I was young, but I never felt comfortable standing in front of him. I had two animals. I want to hand out to you. First off, thank you for trying to explain to these people what this coach debate is all about. It's about the moment that we're in. And. Secondly, I have tried to talk to Matt and tell him to leave Jim Malone, Jim does not bother him. And I was so proud of you yesterday for telling him what has done to you. Matt can't get it, he thinks that you want to hear him go off on somebody. I mean, Matt's the guy that just kind of walks into a bar and insults the big guy, you know, with the John Deere T-shirt on. He didn't want to. It's reaching over for a baseball bat. And I have a question. Literally. If you don't, if you don't mind me asking your questions. Go ahead. Any question you would like. I'll tell all. Well, okay, besides yourself, I give migraine bird credit for being pretty professional. Okay. He calls you Paul fine bam. How is your last name pronounced? Okay. I'm glad we're having this conversation, Mitch. Mike Greenberg. Is referring to my name correctly. So where are the wrong ones? Do you want me to tell you the story? Yes, sir. How this became the Paul fine bomb show? Yes, sir. Well, first of all, the literal translation of my name is the audience want to hear this or not, right? I know. I mean, I feel like I've, but you never know. We're hoping there are a lot of new people watching every day, so maybe they missed us the last time, it's a German name, it's fine baum. What does that mean in German? It means good tree. Baum is free in German. So when however, I don't know where the German, I don't know anybody in my family of German, but obviously somebody was. Because I think my grandparents were from Austria, then they got somewhere else and somewhere and then eventually to wherever. So here's the deal. If you're from New York, which Greenberg is and my parents were, it's fine bound. But then we family matriculated down to the south and in first grade and second grade. They would go around the room and everybody, I would say, sign baum. Paul feig, present. And the teacher would go, mister fine bomb. So finally, about the third grade, I had enough of this. I changed my I literally changed my name. And it drove my mother crazy all those years whenever she would hear me, but I had to do it because if I was going to live in the south. And it's bad enough being in Tennessee. When you got down to Alabama, it got even worse. Well, I'm glad I so now you know why Greenberg calls me fine bound. The first guy to ever call me that on ESPN. Do you know who it was? Someone who's even more New York than Mike Greenberg. Who? I was on his radio show about 25 years ago. 20 5 years ago. Tony corn hush. We got Paul fan on. Paul, I associate him kind of sort of with D.C. now. Well, but he's from New York. And you're right. So now you know Mitch. I mean, I feel like I feel like I know the rest of the story. Yeah, those 20 or 30 people who did not know that story. And the 8 million who have heard it 15 times are going please, not again. Mike is up next in Alabama. How am I? Hey, Paul, how are you? We are doing well. Thank you. I'm a fan, first off, but I wanted to talk about the SEC east. How do you expect South Carolina to do this year? I look for fairly similar season. I think with South Carolina, you're going to get surprise wins and unexpected losses. I think that's just where they are right now. I think they'll manage the first half of the season with two losses to Georgia and Tennessee. That's not a good way to start the year. And then that Missouri, Texas a and M track will be very difficult. I think I would hope to split that. That's three losses. And try to navigate the rest of the way with as much skill as they could. I look for something like 8 and four. Well, you know how Tennessee surprised everybody last year. Yeah. And I'm thinking, I'm thinking South Carolina, possibly could do the same. And everybody seems to be just writing Georgia again, giving them the pass. And I'm searching for that, Mike. Well, I understand that, but they've got a lot of. So you think South Carolina can win at Georgia? Probably not. No. I mean, they did a couple years ago, but that was completely it was a weird day, but I just right now, don't see how they get through those first two road games in the SEC. And what the gamecocks have to avoid is a bad outing.

"Did you become friends with folks? And it's pretty awesome. I mean, would it have been too much to invite me? I mean, I could have worked a wedding. Let me get late. Here's the thing about Paul. I want everybody that's looking in the eyes. Here's the thing about Paul. I love Paul feig. As a person as super talented, I listen to a show. This is how I get my SEC news. And I'm SAC 100%. However, Paul is like me. During a break, I don't like the small talk with folks because it makes me uncomfortable. So does Paul, Paul's like, I'm just gonna sit here and focus and do my that's exactly how I am. Paul doesn't give me a cell phone number. Like I have to go through a guy to get to the guy because he doesn't want me to have it because he knows I'll be calling him go ahead hey man, what are you doing? So him being like, why didn't you invite me? I didn't have a cell phone number. We're like. So what do you mean to do here? May predict the game, Arkansas by four. We beat them in January. They beat us in February. We beat them without Nick Smith, they beat us with Nick Smith, but only with about 5 minutes play when he first coming back. So we're going to take this tonight. What Bobby bones are doing right now is off fu skating while he didn't. I mean, Sam Pittman probably got invited and I got left home. I have him cell phone number though. That's the problem. That's the difference. Yeah, that's a difference. So how are you tired? Because again, I've watched you be here and there's people everywhere. I mean, I say this because I really, I love doing this. I mean, yeah, during the breaks, you talk to fans, but do I need to tell you how important they are? No, no. The fans are the most important. And he was taken. You were taking pictures with people. Over here to the side. And I was sitting here by myself just wondering if Paul even remembered who I was. But that being said, I asked Daniel Brahman, I said, is this one of the sports? This guy, is this guy the Arkansas blogger? Yes, I have a Twitter page that's widely followed. But this is like Vegas to me. When someone comes to Nashville and they work, it's like when I go to Vegas and I'm exhausted. I'm working. I did a couple of stand up shows at the win, and although I was working and doing comedy, I was just so tired because Vegas is like this. Is that how it is with you in Nashville? I think as I'm kind of progressed, which turns out, which will actually mean getting older. You really, you do appreciate it because this show, Bobby, I don't need to tell you. It is about the fans of the SEC. They didn't bring me on here because I know very much. Well, that's not true. He's playing humble again. You know more than really anybody. You're doing SEC football shows on the weekend there. You're doing this every single day. I went and filled in for rich eisen for a few days in LA. Did you? I did. He asked me to come fill in and I thought, wow, rich eisen, who was one of my heroes as a kid on sports and asked me to fill in and not once as Paul fine bomb ever said, make a little drive down to fill in for me for a couple of days. Yeah, exactly. Because you know why we don't have each other cell phone number. I can see the guys in the studio. Bells are in you right now. Who's going to win this thing? You're going to say Alabama that's easy answer? No, no. I've been telling people, I tell people on the street, whatever uniform they're wearing, Kentucky. I somewhat like a and M why. That's okay. I love bugs. Maybe I'm paying too much attention to last year when buzz made that run. But I really, I feel like they're playing at the right time. What do you think about old buzz as a person? I like him. What about his because I have a bus story, but what about his character to you stands out? What's the reason you like him? He was a guy, do you know him well? I have a couple run ins with him. It comes from nothing. And I think that's the part of the story that I like. Now, listen, I said this repeatedly. I mean,

"She was throwing people around like ragdolls, I was like, oh my God. That was great. That was great. Yeah, I thought Alison Jane really was hilarious in that because to see her as the head of the CIA, I think it really was supposed to be like, this is like a women centric film. And this is what we're doing to empower them. And she was so funny. I mean, she was going toe to toe with melis McCarthy and Jason Statham, though one scenery and he asks about the face off machine. I know there's a face off mission. You know, I'll just add in it from me. That was great. When she gets the secret identities, and she's like, what the hell is this? I got cats. Hundred cats. They're like, oh, come on. It was hilarious, and it was so fun, and I thought, and I think this movie for Paul feig, I liked a lot more where he blends two genres and this one being action and comedy versus the latest movie I saw by him was a simple favor, which blended more of a thriller and a comedy, which I thought fell flat. Not for any other reason, but I thought it was a poorly done movie. But I thought this one, it really shown because we see a lot of male spy comedies like Austin Powers, I would say, is the most equivalent to this one. In a genre type of way, but I think this one really is more action forward and I think just more well rounded. Yeah, I think definitely because Paul was such a fan of James Bond movies that he tried to make those moments as, I guess if you want to say realistic, but as accurate as possible, I think that also lended to making the comedy land when it landed. So yeah. Of course. And then we have the two different types of agents, right? We have Melissa McCarthy's in the ear kind of booth agent who then goes into the field. And then we have what we imagine as an agent in Karen walker. She's beautiful. She's effortless. She goes on very successful missions. Everyone's jealous of her. She walks in the room. There's confidence. And then it turns out that she's a double agent. Oh, it's obviously if you've watched our listen to our podcast. Spoilers. But she's a double agent. And I think it's so interesting to see it's like, oh, I don't know. What do you guys, what are your thoughts on that? As the two of them as parallels in the movie. Yeah, I mean, I thought it was great. I thought it added something that we didn't see before, something that was more interesting. And again, it just showed different sides to the actors as well. Because again, I never really saw Marin, I forgot her name. But I never really saw her in anything comedic before. And I think that was a great introduction. To seeing more of her work. Because again, I think she went on to do things like Deadpool and things like that as well. So yeah, I thought the contrast and not only what you would stereotypically think of a good-looking person or a attractive person being the person who's actually sort of playing their own things behind the scenes or the villain of the story or the antagonist in this instance. So I thought that was interesting. Yeah, definitely made. So my thing is, I like it because if you watch the superhero movies of marvel, D.C., all the superheroes are these finely attractive gorgeous people and, you know, in reality, not everybody looks like that, just saying. So to see someone to see someone like a normal person like that, maybe she is a little heftier, but she's kicking butt. And there's another movie she does where she's a superhero. Oh, yes, the one with Octavia Spencer on Netflix. Yes, that is hysterical. That is really good. And it just shows that I like it because it's more like realistic that people don't have to be like, you know, supermodel gorgeous to be kick ass person or like a great actress or a great actor. I mean, you can be a normal person. Just like we did with prey. And the other movies where we talked about people that they're using people that are realistic instead of like, you know, Arnold Schwarzenegger where I must have muscles up my muscles. I mean, listen, I walk down the street, I don't see a lot of people with muscles up my muscles. And I go to the gym and half the time I don't see those people on the street. I don't know where they go. Where do you muscle your people? Where do they go? I think they just power down at night. Charge up steroid up. I feel like it's a Game of Thrones and Tyrion Lannister. I'm like, where'd the chocolate I go? Oh, they went home. Sorry, people I have nothing against people with muscles. Please don't hurt me. Oh, we do. We hate you. You don't exist. You have big balloon. Joking, joking. Listen, my name's not Benoit. I am Lima. But no, I thought I thought the movie was very well done. It's very quotable, and it's a fun movie to watch, I think, with friends, because everyone goes into it and I think with very different expectations, you start with a very James Bond ask cold open, where we see it's very Jude lie being very suave, but oops, he makes a mistake 'cause he doesn't take his allergy medicine. And I think that kind of kicks in the comedy of what the movie will be. I think it's very well done though, and I like Miranda Hart in it. I think she plays a very good, I've only ever seen her as a leading role in her own show, the Miranda heart show from the UK. So to see her as like this best friend kind of role, I thought was really funny. And I thought that her and Susan had a very good supportive relationship of each other, which in films in past we were seeing a shift now, we female friendships weren't celebrated like they are now. And I think it's really fun to see it in different genres. So what do you think, or who do you think had the most chemistry? I mean, Melissa and the other. Oh, Melissa McCarthy and Jason Statham. I think any time that they were together, it was hysterical to me. When he breaks into her room, when he's like, all right, pipe down lunch lady. When they're in the casino together, I think that they had such an incredible chemistry. And I loved their arc of being complete parallels to each other in different ways. He's this unhinged agent, and she's like, a more, I don't want to use the word demure, because she's never done your in it. But she's much more methodical than him, but they're both trying to achieve the same goal. Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, I totally agree. For me, it was rose and Melissa. I think that every time they just were going at each other, it was awesome. And I think that when she sort of cracked her shell a little bit towards the end, was also satisfying. Yeah, I just love their dynamic. Every time they were on the scene together on the screen together, they were just great. I love them. When they're at the very fancy restaurant in Rome and she's like, and she's trying to order wine to impress her and she's like, I wanted to have the grit of a hummus that has been smoothed out with a water, and of a tree. The things that just come out are so funny. That's a napkin. I knew that. And then she's like, dude, peel your food apart, like a baby score. But no, I agree. Rose burn and Melissa did have great chemistry. Who is it for you, Ben? I thought, Nathan. At the very end, after the scenes when they're in bed together. And she's like, oh my God, no, and he's like, you loved it. And I

"What is happening world I'm your host the wizard of war and Benji was the act. This week, we're going to talk about spa. And we have a special guest who was just on our last show. So welcome back. Welcome back, Durbin's. I know it's been a long time since we've seen you last. Ages. All right, so we're talking about the Paul feig feature spy released in 2015 starring Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Jason Statham, huge, huge cast, very interesting film in the spy sort of James Bond genre. Very much a genre film. But with a fun twist, I have many connections to this film, so I will go last, but what does everyone else's history with it? Jordan? My history with it is I like Melissa a lot. Melissa McCartney. So when her film came out, I was just like, let me check this out. And then I saw who was in the cast and I was like, oh, okay, this is going to either be very interesting or very bad. 'cause, you know, it's always like that. When you have such a plethora of actors on screen. But yeah, yeah, I watched it and I could not stop laughing. Throughout the entire thing. So, yeah, that's sort of my history with it. Nice introduction to the word plethora. I like it. Good job. That's right. Left the right people. So for me, I had never heard of the movie hero actually said, why don't we do spy? It's one of my favorite movies. And my birthday is coming up, and it would be great. And I was like, okay, I'll give it a shot. And I'm glad I did. It was very funny. I actually sat back and watched it and was just dying laughing and I couldn't stop laughing because some of the parts in it with Melissa McCarthy would just be on hysterical and I really liked it. I think it's so funny because what Melissa McCarthy does so well is like this very physical comedy. But at the same time, she's understands timing as well. So I think we have her through these very intense sequences of action and fighting and then she's throwing out these one lines that I think are hysterical. If we can go scene by scene, but I've seen that sticks out to me specifically is when she's fighting the buyer in the green jumpsuit and she like stabs her through the hand. She hits her in the head with the frying pan. It's all very like three Stooges esque, but it's also supposed to be like serious. I don't know, I'm Melissa McCarthy brings us levity to the role, I think that's really engaging. Yeah, yeah, I definitely agree. I was actually watching that team before I came in. And it was funny, 'cause I looked a little bit on the stunt choreographer and how they got everything situated. And apparently it was inspired by a lot of Jackie Chan's 1980s movies, which I was like, ah, that's where it is, because it fits very well with her sort of comedic timing. And then, of course, Jackie Chan sort of physical comedy and physical action. So yeah, that scene was great. It was incredible. It was so funny. And what I like about the movie is that in the beginning, she's very mild mannered. She's very soft spoken. She's kind of trying to figure out who she is. Even though she's developed within her own self, she struggles with her identity and how she presents herself. We see Jude Law making comments about how she has cats and how she's alone and how she's depressed. She gets these covers of sad women from the Midwest. And I think it's very telling of how society views bigger women of a certain age. I think it was no one got the chance to know that she wanted to be an agent. No one got the chance to know that she is super talented in the field. So I think that was super funny and how she continued to prove herself over and over and over again and really the only person I thought besides Miranda Hart who believed in her was Jason Statham, even though he's seen as like this antagonist to her, he's never saying he's saying you're not capable, but that's his own ego because he sees that she's actually capable. And they do work together. Yeah, definitely. I think that they're sort of chemistry on screen. It was great. Especially, especially when you see the behind the scenes featurettes when they were sort of break down after every set of jokes that Melissa would just keep pounding him with. It's like, it was good to see that they had a lot of fun doing it too, which was great. But yeah, yeah. The chemistry and like you were saying like her characterization or struggles, yeah, yeah, I'm totally on point with all that. Yeah. And then I think it's so funny too because then we had someone like Rose Byrne who's very conventionally of attractive. She's supposed to be seen as coming from money coming from this mob family. And she's so dumb. She's actually done. Like, yeah, she's a bitch, but she can't do any anything. She can't even remember anyone's name. That was like my funniest, the funniest thing is that she couldn't remember anyone's name. Yeah, I thought the whole thing was like the premise of the movie is she's a spotter for our natural agent and then as a spotter she's leading them through all this stuff and basically keeping him alive until at one point she fails. And he dies and she holds it on him. There's this twist to that, by the way. I just want to say, no, but yeah, so watching that. And then she ends up having to face this woman on the plane when she tended to be a bodyguard. And when they lose gravity and she's going down and the guy between her legs, the dead body, it was just so funny when she plops to the ground, the guy's like the dead guy's face goes right between her legs and she's like, oh, seriously people. It was great. I mean, in that plane scene, I lost my mind when she started comparing. Her mother to Melissa. I was like, oh my God. That was great. She's like, I'm not like your mother. A Bulgarian clown, I think she said obviously. Yeah, that was hysterical. I thought it was so funny. If you get a chance to watch this movie, after you listen to this review, you're going to be like, yeah, I got to watch it, because it's really funny. It is, and Rose Byrne is, I mean, every line that comes out of her mouth is so funny. Even when Melissa McCarthy is trying to save her like that one scene in a casino because someone poisons her drink. And she goes, oh, do people roofy you often? Yes. Yes. That was great. And it was just like, I think it also is like, she's seen as this high class woman who's like, oh, I'm so hot, of course someone would try to put something in my drink. You don't know who I am, but you? I'm looking at you in this ugly prom dress. She was so biting. It was very fun. It was very funny. Yeah, for me, it was the first time that I realized that rose could do comedy. Because every time I've seen her in other things before, it was more serious things or sort of action packed stuff, but when her and Melissa were going at each other, I was like, I can't. I can't. I need to stop. It was so fun. I thought Melissa carried a lot of what I would imagine from what I've seen Robin Williams doing on set where he's just constant, funny, nonstop, and when people are like, okay, you got to stop. We've got to keep rolling. Keep moving. I find that especially in this film because her moment to shine, and I know this movie came out in a string of movies. Where she was sort of seen as like this bigger kind of funny person. Like that. Spy, and there was bridesmaids, bridesmaids, is the one that kicked it all off. And she does this string of comedy movies, but I think this one she really subverts every trope of being a bigger woman. Because you see her being capable time and time again. And I'm saying this as a huge Melissa McCarthy fan. Yeah, definitely. And I also like to see when they were showing her her training video. When

"Comes to business, accelerate your business growth has got to cover. And now on with the show. My guest today is Paul feig. Paul's career in one word is storytelling. His passion led him to start word right. His book, finding your capital S story, builds on word rights, trademarked process, story crafting. Your capital S story explains why someone should buy from you, work for you, invest in you or partner with you. Before word right, Paul was a vice president at ketchum public relations and a journalist covering everything from murders to The White House. Thanks so much for being here with me today, Paul. Diane, thanks so much for having me. And great to be with your audience as well. Excellent. Well, I am thrilled to have you here. I would love it if you would share with the listeners why business leaders should care about storytelling. Well, that's a great question, Diane. It's because storytelling is in our biology. In the last 30 years, scientists have had access to tools like functional MRIs and other scanning devices that proof positively that story works in our brain to help us process information. Diane, I'm not met somebody in the last ten years who thinks that we are experiencing too little information in our daily lives. We're swimming in digital clutter. Our brains, which were developed tens of thousands of years ago, were designed to process information, even way back then. In the form of narratives. Storytelling. It's never been more important to be a good storyteller and to share your capitalist story. Than today. How else are we going to stand out as business leaders from that sea of information that's washing over us? Every moment of every day. Yeah, I so get that. And I am curious about what makes certain kinds of stories more important than others. Well, in the book and in our process, what we describe as the capitalist story is the one that, as you said, a few minutes ago, answers these fundamental questions. Why somebody should buy from you work for you, invest in you and partner with you. You know, as you pointed out, I'm a former journalist. And in the old days, we used to say, today's news story is tomorrow's birdcage liner. That was back in the days, of course, when, you know, people actually read newspapers. Now, maybe they do, but they read them online. So when I say these days is, all the stories that fly by on your social media, I mean, really think about it for all of your listeners. Can you really remember all the stories that you saw on social media yesterday? No. We can't. Because those are smallest stories. They're here today and gone tomorrow. What's different about the capital S story is it defines the true character and nature of your organization. That's why it stands above all the rest. And what we've learned in two decades of working with clients to help them better share their stories is that that story should be powering all of your marketing, all of your sales, all of your communications. I say so what are the elements of a successful business story? They have to start with three things, Diane. Number one, the story has to be authentic, which means rooted in truth..

"Actors and we would do the first few takes and it would there be a real sadness about it and i had to constantly go like member. We love steve. We don't necessarily like my right. You know and it would change the dynamic. But i completely got it because i was so emotional to. I would come falling into that and then going like wait. This can't be everybody's weeping because it's not going to track with the whole rest of the show and that also made me very sad for michael scott they like them but they don't love him. You know what i mean. But that's very real. You know how many times the people you work with other than. You'll i'll miss them. You're not like oh. My god i can't live without you know the boss or i can't live without that manager but that was really really hard because everybody wanted to break down I also remember. And i have a picture. I've gotta find it somewhere. I i we were is the last day and we're shooting something. I looked over in greg. The couch when you come in the front door. There's a couch next receptionist. I looked in. Greg was just literally laying flat out face down on the couch. Just with this kind of his hands under his head and it just summed everything up of just like we can't believe steve is gone. We can't imagine life without steve. Grell on this adds It was tough The weird thing for me was that we shot the very last thing probably three days before the end of the episode. Which was the thing at the airport with jenin. Steve and that got me. More than i. Kinda thought i mean the last day got me but i was so on task doing that airport scene. That was when i was just like you know. Insinuates takes off the mike. And just you know. I'm actually getting choked up when i talk about just seeing them. Yeah i heard going off and you don't know what they say and just her hugging him and it was just it was really it was really something But really landed for me just what the show was in. Just you felt like you were kind of part of history. I in that moment. And i loved everybody but i remember saying i'm now i'm not going to direct anymore episodes because i love all the episodes after steve but to me it just like that was the group you know. I almost felt like..

"Some of our editors when they were doing it too and it was was fun. And i also got to spend more and more time on the set which i love. I will fully admit the one thing that i'm really sad about is i was not allowed to direct the super bowl episode because i think the network wasn't thrilled with the christmas episode. The merediths Moroccan christmas yeah. Exactly i think they were. They had some issues. So i remember being penalized. Because i was kind. Of course. i'm the in house director. I write do the hour long. One in then i didn't and i remember just being very upset about and then It won the emmy for the but he did a great job. I mean using job. You also directed Niagara how did you find out ultimately how that the wedding actually played out with the other wedding and niagara cetera. Well i mean it. Was you know. I was so excited to get to do that. One and i you know the first time we ever think we ever went on location to anything on the show Even though all this stuff we shot it You know it's supposed to be there was actually and The smokehouse right right. A block away from my my excellent. I mean one of the greatest honors for me was also getting to the proposal. Which was the most expensive shot we ever do. In the show's history. That was the very first episode of that that season and we basically blew the entire budget for the rest of the season shot caused. I mean like half a million dollars because it filled a cg right anyway But so yes and we got to the wedding very emotional. It was weird. Because we're gonna shoot on this lady. The mr made of the mist made so that just brought so many logistical things. That you're kind of like. It was hard to kind of invest in the emotion of it at first. Because i was so worried like regan against soaked. Are we gonna camera gonna screw up. But it wasn't until we got in the editing room. And his claire claire. I was there with her. When we decided we were going to intermix the dance number with the wedding and we just burst into tears. I mean. I i still get get so emotional watching that because it's so beautiful the way that goes back and forth between the two but it's also an jumping all around but there's so many things in my head when we put that episode together that dance number which came out of the blue. I mean do you know the whole backstory on what was originally originally. Greg head is insane idea that was. La is dwight was gonna dry..

"People believe the greatest episode of the office. Is dinner party that you directed and you were not supposed to direct it. Somebody else's supposed to direct it and then the writers strike happened. But i remember i had been given the script to survivor. Man i think was the one and i'm like oh i like this group. Oh my god. Can i please have dinner party and wills already been promised out somebody else i was like. Oh no i literally try to figure like subverted or whatever and then the writers drag dropped into our laps and horrible and that was what a terrible time that was but it just happened to work out that when it came back i it was available for me too because i think he was busy and it was one of those things you just read like. Oh my god. This is the funniest thing i've ever read. But it's also what i love because it's so cringe. This is just going to be like excruciating. But that's my favorite kind of comedy. But if you remember. I think it was probably when it aired. Probably our most hated episode. I mean people did not like it because it made them so uncomfortable and I've ever being very surprised by that. But the feedback was coming up on the website. And we're just getting really bad feedback from it. So i'm so happy that out sorted itself out and really taught me something. I didn't realize before that. Which is the hardest part about. Just you know when you have a movie out of anything if you have any kind of track record people know what you do. You've got a voice or they're used stuff you've done that the biggest impediment to people enjoying something is the fact that it exists and they have to get used to it existing and so you know they. They're used that the field of the office which is fun definitely has cringe stuff in it but so then when this thing comes up and you're like we're just gonna dangle you in the win and make you feel so uncomfortable that they're like i can't how dare you do this to me right. But then when they watch and then they've gotten that out of their head and now they know exists and they go back and watch it again then go like oh my god. This is the funniest thing i've ever seen. And that episode is so obviously driven by that cast and How funny are and this is one time. We're putting them in a setting outside of the office worked so great because it was a setting that meant so much to one person. I mean i i think i still. I don't think i ever lab as hard as when we did. The thing of michael giving tour that living room with that little tv and then the to the shitty table and it was a that was just such a team. Effort between steve is a performer. In between randall..

"And steve's part i mean people would say it to me as well but he shows up and he just is crazy and it's like are you fucking kidding me you know first of all if you know steve. He's crazy at all. He's one of the most even tempered smart guys over matt my life but for comedy good. It's gotta look easy if it looks sweaty and it looks like turbulent trying too hard. It's terrible but then when you do so great that you make it so real people go. You're not doing anything. So at some point you just go awards me. Nothing and screw it. Let's just throw it out but the fact that there's a comedy leading math category and he can never win. It is it's crazy. And i really think academy. Do you like the president's award or whatever where you give somebody who's been not taking care of given that emmy and should be like five feet high. Yeah yeah when. I was talking to rain. High said to him. The comedy duo of the two of them together. You referenced. the halloween episode to. They're just so funny up. They're just so funny. And there's just it's these two archetypal characters in the way that they fit together Was just brilliant. And there's not. There's not really a parallel to them. Because it's not laurel and hardy not avenue castillo because of that. Exactly what you're saying. It's this weird. They need other. But michael doesn't want dwight's of acceptance and it's it's really i mean but you know such credit to rain. I mean what amazing character he pulled in to be a character that could have been so over the top arch but there is a humanity in him because he's just that guy that we all know who's just like striving and wants it and launch it so much and tries to kind throw everybody else out of the way but he's still sensitive and it's really i mean you know in reigns the greatest guy do well and part of why the show is so popular. I think that dwight shrewd this character full of contradictions. Don't make any like heavy metal dunn's engine drag it like all of these weird things but they're so specific that is actually what makes it universal that people like see that it's a real character a real person. Yeah i mean the characters are all specifics. You know when you get in trouble when you're writing something you kind of have this general kind of feeling what your character does and you know. It's really going through that. Laos agree list of like specifics. What is their religion what they believe in. What were they afraid. Their favorite food. Those things make up who we are. If you think about it. I mean you know that that's the it's like. How many times did you meet someone. You really like them. Then you'll find out one thing and you're like wait what you either. You don't like them because of it or you feel really bad for them..

"But you guys have the ability to just have this freedom with the cameras. Right backing up slightly. You mentioned diversity day You know. I think that we've talked a lot about what you wanna call him. But issue episodes that sounds so like especially like a very special episode. You know talking about really from our second episode diversity day beginning to talk about difficult social issues in a way that some would say hadn't been on television since all in the family looking at race but looking at it in a different way with a protagonist. Who was the one kind of stirring the pot. Yeah a lot of people have said it. And steve himself said he wasn't a bad guy. No it was it was just. He wasn't woken up. Yeah he's not savvy enough and heath the great thing about steve's character. I also think archie bunker is like one of the greatest characters possibly the greatest character ever been in comedy But are people who are just convinced. They're right also when they say something terrible. It's like what what did i say. What did i say that so terrible. It's that weird innocence of thinking. Get away with it. The that really makes the difference. You know there's no malice in that person you talked about unlikable leading men You know being a very british thing but it's funny like when you look at television history and you bring up archie bunker again. Another sort of unlikable leading man. Yeah very much. I mean you know. That's one of the most challenging characters to be on. Tv i think you know people started replicate that so many times and it just that was so specific to the time. Ironically i almost feel like i think almost were even more divided now. I don't even think you could pull it off cause somebody's so self-defensive but back then there was ability to even though everybody's you know passions were high. You need that that steam relief for whatever to get these ideas out there and also surround. That shows just brilliant because the wife who's just a saint and then the overbearing son-in-law who's too far the other way and then the daughter kind of caught in the middle so if you got to present a fair and balanced mixture of opinions. Then you can have fun with it and then if you again take the malice out of it unless you need a villain then everybody's just kind of misguided then it becomes about the appealing of the people playing those roles and i don't mean looks or anything i just mean. Do you inherently like them in you. You inherently like steve. Because he is just he's so funny and also just you know. He thinks he's doing the doing the right thing. And you can't. It's hard for americans to get mad at that right. Where do you think he fits in michael scott. Sort of in the history of comedy leading men in television. I mean honestly it's a real close race between carroll o'connor and steve corral for me. I've i've lamented this before. And never say sometimes it turns. The press remember is that it didn't happen. But steve hurrell never won an emmy. Never want an in. It makes me mental and out balden. I love him. he's funny guy in the world. He's he's great. But you know that was a showy part..

"Think is so interesting. Yeah it's fascinating. You know one of the things i love about. Ken is like he doesn't even say action. You just go ahead. And which is great. Because there is that thing. And i when i do my movies and all that i've purchased out of what i do night still call action but there is something about it. Leads up to this like okay. Everybody go and it's big event. That's why i always just go. Go go go again to get people out of that thing of like here. It come there. They'd just redone your makeup. The evers rolling and go and so you know the the the thing on the office was always that the cameras never turned off until we finish the scene so we kept rolling just kept going moving around also the the thing that they were doing and i think ken started. This too is just saying like all day. Everybody has to be here all day. Just because we're in the offer you don't wanna know who we're going to see in the background because the cameras going to be moving around you know and that carried on for a couple of seasons until till well started getting more successful but to a certain degree it was there throughout. I mean he you know. Even later. there were scenes that were taking place at the reception area. And steve caro- was sitting in. You know as michael scott was sitting office there in the background. It definitely happened but but who drew the short straw in that whole series. It was poor Last week david baker he only when we saw through the window He was the only person that we saw when we do the talking heads that looked into the office. So he right somehow escaped. Well remember asking for sevilla's to come in a couple of times. I might see your hands right just one other question sort of on this topic is basically. How do you feel like the fact that there were ordinary looking people right That that and the fact that we were all essentially unknown. How did that contribute to think to creating that world. Well i made a much more relatable. It's funny because i always say like you know we always try to go. You know like let's just really normal people the minute somebody gets on camera. They do become appealing. It's just a natural thing that happens so again it goes back to this. Docu style i i. I think that is just the key to everything because it takes all the grandiosity out of the film making process. You know when you get your close up and you're in a movie or tv show and you get a close up we're tracking around you. It just becomes an event. It just ventanas little moments in life and the fact that if everybody's sitting there and we're kind of this sort of high angle because all the cameraman standup generally unless Randall's his pootie kuti sitting on this little thing with wheels. We're seeing the way we walk through the office. That's how we'd be watching it. And that's why i think with the zooming in on people it just you've as an article. Oh i would focus on that person and somehow in my brain i would actually zoom in on them..

"Because of youtube people started finding so much humor in captured moments and things happening on the fly. Any lance real at that comedy became completely behavioral and and i felt over the last ten years. People have no patience for jokes at all. It sounds like a joke. They're still jokes but they can't be like snappy snappy clever dialogue it has you know unfreezing he's we our biggest laughs would be you know martin stars going home you know that but the script and back in the old days they like. We need a joke here. Need to punch lines. No that's the joke. Can you know one of my best. Friends is matt reeves who did cloverfield. You know when people were like oh my god. I'm throwing up all this up now..

"Because of that, so there is a movement of foot to see if you can, for instance, with Dawson's Creek because they have such a big following there were there were sort of fan build up to try toe raise attention to this to make it worth their while. The studio that put it out. To pony up more money for that, and apparently at least with Dawson's Creek they name agreed to. They got the original artist to re perform the song the theme song and then they can license that. I don't know if they'll be able to get all of the music throughout all the shows. But at least that's something freaks and geeks was Created by Judd Apatow and Paul Feig. They now are so successful in Hollywood. They've managed to sort of, say, OK, we are going to spend the big money to make sure freaks and geeks, which one of the great TV shows of all time It's going to keep the original music, but there were some weird things. I think we have an X Files clip. I don't know if we have time for that, or not the first one, the exiles where they played Bobby Darin somewhere because see somewhere way if they paid for that one for a certain amount of time, right? Yes, And apparently and then then they had to replace it. Right then you might like this one alone. Gone for Claire. Then are you still there, Which is French for the sea.

"Yep, like I was some sort of sexual harassment video and then I realized good tip for our viewers. It's awesome to watch that when I hired at abcnews it was Regional but they used it in all the stores. So then I got the heat with our body Mike McDonald and that was probably when I just was like, all right, if I don't do anything else I got to be in a big comedy movie with some Superstars experience like grinding all over you. I mean like I mean here you awesome and I'm a young fat Adam was like it did get better and it was her Melissa couldn't been cooler. We're still homies met Mike McDonald on the first day. I love older brother. I mean Mike Rappaport first day been very great since then, but the experience was so awesome did stand up in Boston was there's Sandra came to a show one night was in the Boston Globe the next day and just the Paul feig still homie. Like all of it was it's just you felt you will like that you belonged totally out and and to go back to you because you keep getting invited back to like you're in the circle you're in you're in the click man. I mean in the clit wage. Click yes to quit to maybe I don't know. I don't want to jump to us. Yes, we're going to be called in the daddy just took that as if he was like I got some Insider information from my kids. It's now, you know say you're in the clip if you're in the think I'm cool. Yeah, So the whole thing was so dope that I was like man if I don't do anything else I'm truly going to chalk this up and live it up and and and Mike and I went to like a Red Sox game and then would go get you know did not drunk if we had a couple of days and and but you're right on the thing you said where it was like everything you do prior to that sets you up for that and I wasn't like I said probably would have been for other things like that Mac Show would have been ready to I would have been a disaster. I would have I was much more centered into who I was I'd been through a lot more of just the grinding and I was just ready for it off. Still very nervous. First day was the scene room holding guns and Melissa and Saint Andrews head and Paul says you can improvise so I mean, I'm like, all right, like so I'm thinking of like eight bolts in my head and I'm just like pick one of those men and just fucking go for it. Or maybe don't I think I did it on the first one and then just did from there on out and they both after that should take when when I did an improv and it stayed in and then they they both have to take a look to me and sent that was funny and most of us like looking. All right. All right, this will be good. This is to be good. And I was like, all right, cool. I am not going to get fired I guess but but so then that was and then again it's and then you learn from the after that like he believed, you know, took me on the road for a little bit. Would.
