Ranch vs. Blue Cheese

"I love blue cheese all everyday not even as a wing dipping sauce blue cheese dressing. I like blue cheese crumbles. I like it on a wedge salad on the side of you know. The stake have one time mistake and i made blue cheese pound butter. Wow what a wonderful yummy. Oh that does sound good bread. Yeah i love blue cheese. And i think it's verse it on. I think people just have a weird aversion to mold. You think blue cheeses versatile. I think it so versatile foods that i didn't necessarily well you kind of just named like wings salad and then stake but stake when really blue cheese. Would you blue cheese dressing on a stake. Blue cheese dressing rate is like the arguing. She's dipping sauce. We like dipping sauce dressing all blue cheese in general. I brought a list of blue cheeses. That i like. Well no but. I mean a lot of people like as a kid. I didn't know that blue cheese was a standalone cheese. Only had it in dressing for in. I'd only had like bad dressing. I think bad blue cheese dressing is much worse than what is bad. Blue cheese dressing wishbone. We're never getting wishbone. Wishbone wishbone boise. Addressing. there is no blue cheese in there. It's like a little bit of mold powder and then all parents love wishboned. Blue cheese dressing. That's why we grew up with it. He's like. America does corn syrup and chemicals america america french dressing. Wow i have nothing. I'd love wishbone. I love the shape of their bottles. Correct i think. Ken steakhouse highfalutin. That's the zinc legit jesse of all time. I can't bring myself to buy like fancy salad dressings. Because i'm either buying like a valley or like a wishbone equivalent or making my own spending. No seven forty. Nine for paul newman. Do you like making your own ranch. Yes is it as good as a bottled ranch. It's not as good as this. We we need to offer up a correction here for a previous episode. I don't even know what the heck we were talking about. We mentioned how good cisco ranches and we brought it specifically outback. Yeah mansion house. Oh no but i mean to me. That's a testament of. I love taking foods that are like really good prefab like stove. Top stuffing right like making my own homemade version of top stuffing and trying to make it taste exactly like that. And i love doing that like cisco ranch. But those don't no one's talking about cisco is the gigantic food distribution company that delivers like ten gallon drums What's the one cattlemen's cattlemans barbecue sauce. Brands that only exists that go through cisco and sell in ten gallon increments until like every crappy chain across. America uses the same barbecue sauce cisco small mom and pop restaurants long thoughts. Yeah they'll source of a lot of diners especially that have really big menus aren't so using very true. Isn't blue cheese dressing just ranch plus blue cheese okay. This comes to a very good point ranches. The mother sauce dressing is the variation on the mother. It's like you have holidays. Then you add shallots in tarragon and you get burn as you have ranch dressing. And the ad blue cheese crumbles in blue cheese dressing. Which is why. I think ranches superior s coffee rolling in his grave right now. The disrespect that you are giving towards his muscle. Tear down your french cooking idols. All right because the hidden valley corporation made so much more money so many more people in this coffee. You don't know that where your second. Though that i got a rifle actually hidden valley is worth a ton of money. They got top chef money. They sponsor entire seasons of top chef last chance kitchen which is also one of the most brilliant digital marketing devices last chance kitchen so top chef hidden valley would occasionally sponsor like a quickfire challenge on top chef. Literally be like yeah. Oh there's and they can get all wacky with it. Like reynolds wrap sponsored one one year and literally had to only cook using reynolds wrap as like equipment so people were like fashioning saute pans that have just reynolds wrap. Oh that's so fits on the up and they go on the show on top chef. Can i go yeah. I don't think i would win. But i would. Just a lot of people are like top chef. And i was like literally like the one of the first challenges. There is called a pre where it's like you have to perfectly breakdown or trust chickens. Yes technical stuff. That i have no idea i feel like i could go on. Chopped cut their kitchen. All the garbage food network shows. Top chef is an entirely different level. That i could not happen. Yeah yeah yeah.

interview With Father Gregory Boyle of Homeboy Industries

"Hey everyone. Welcome to how. I built this resilience edition from npr on these episodes. We talk with entrepreneurs and change makers how they're meeting today's challenges with new strategies and ideas and today we're going to hear from father gregory boyle. He's the founder of homeboy industries. Father greg founded homeboy industries after years of serving as a jesuit priest and later as a pastor at dolores mission church in east. La forty saw the devastating effects of gang related violence on his community after operating for over thirty years. Homeboy industries has become one of the largest gang intervention rehabilitation and re entry programs in the world. About fifteen thousand folks year walk through our doors trying to reimagine their lives. We were begun in nineteen eight. Just end my paris. Which was the poorest in the city but had had the highest concentration of gang activity. We had eight gangs at war with each other and i started to bury kids. I buried my two hundred and eighty third last week. Not all from that community. Obviously but i know a lot of gang members. So i get asked and and so we just started. Things started to school than we started the jobs program trying to find felony friendly employers then that was not so forthcoming so we started businesses. A bakery was the first in ninety two and now we have nine social enterprises but also a program of healing you know. Sluggers tattoo removal. There's therapy case management classes. It's an amazing series of programs. And as you mentioned i mean things like tattoo removal or just helping people kind of reenter society after being gangs or being incarcerated obviously while it's changing many employers still reluctant to hire people with felony records and in response to that you create your own businesses aside from the bakery which is probably the best known because it has locations in los angeles tummy a little bit more about some of the other social enterprises that homeboy industries has launched so at our headquarters. We have homeboy bakery homegirl. Cafe and homeboy homegirl marchandise. And then we have the restaurant at the airport a city hall. We have homeboy diner. The only place to get food at city hall. We have a thing called homeboy grocery where we sell chips salsa and guacamole and a variety of grocery stores boy recycling which is recycling. You waste which quite an extensive of business and growing amboise silkscreen and embroidery. That's been around for twenty seven years. Lap boesky nine in there so That's a lot. that's a lot. I was telling you earlier before we went live that i saw you profile and sixty minutes in. I think in the late eighties early nineties and i grew up in in los angeles. You're such a legendary figure there. I'm you've been awarded the california peace prize. And i mean you're a priest at the end of the day like your priest you do. Mass obviously socially distant for people who are incarcerated. But you're also an entrepreneur. Did you consider yourself as an entrepreneur when you founded this organization. Do you think of yourself that way. Now why board would never sign on the notion that i know anything about business so i don't really see it that way but we're always responding if tattoos had become a an obstacle in gang members. One of them off. We started that even in terms of our businesses. They were kind of haphazard you. There was no business plan. There was an abandoned bakery across the street from our school. Our parochial school in a movie producer. Ray stark after the unrest in ninety two wanted to help and i said well okay. I don't know by this bakery. It has ovens they don't work. You could fix them. We could put hairnets on enemy rival gang members. Well that was the entirety of my business plan. So i think i think everything else kind of operated in the same way. There was a couple from the parish who wanted to start rodriguez silk screening. And i said well. Don't start homeboys screening in. So that's how that was born so you know it wasn't like go some big master plan and it was all kind of accidental. You know we have a thing called the global homeboy network. Which is you know. Three hundred programs in the country outside kind of modeled on methodology. You know they all want to start a social enterprise and they all want to do food. Which i always say don't but you know because food is hard. Yeah restaurants are really hard sex in us to a bakery cafe and it's hard to talk people out of this. But i was tell do silk screening. That's recession proof. Everybody wants a shirt their family reunion or they're five k. race. And they'll go with you even if it's more expensive because it's kind of the. Paul newman feel good. You know it's like yeah. It's cost more but it helps employees

Sung Kang reveals the fight to make 'Better Luck Tomorrow'

"Sung king you know him as the street racers. Hans Solo. I love that Han Solo in the fast and furious movies. And you can argue that. Seng's portrayal of Han the impossibly cool mentor of Tokyo drift. A member of the core fast and furious family made the franchise the most surprising and successful blockbuster series in Hollywood history. I would definitely make the argument so we are very lucky to have the chance to speak with Song. Today on Asian enough. Thank you for being here with us forever me we want to start off by addressing the big news. Which is you are coming back to the fast and furious franchise for the upcoming fast and furious. Nine which is huge for those of us who obsessively watched these movies because we know than Han. Your character has been gone for a couple of movies and in fact has one of the most tremendous most unpredictable. Arc's I feel like in movie history in that you know Tokyo drift. Which was the third movie in. The fast and furious franchise is the one that you originated this character. And we'd love to hear from you. What has your relationship with Han. Been like over these years. It's a love hate relationship. The hate is a strong word for it. I think it's maybe love and difficult is what it is because I'll never dismiss what the fast and furious and with the Han characters done for my career and my family and opened the Hollywood doors the first time I you know Justin and I worked on festive fears like we would just literally walk around the production office and then go into his office and start like laughing. Because can all these chairs the free snapple into the free water right those little things that we really appreciate it. Because when we're shooting tomorrow we had nothing we had a fold out table with five sticks of. Wrigley's spearmint gum spread out and a box of cold intimate donuts breakfast. That was our craft service and better luck tomorrow. Of course was the two thousand two indie film about over achieving Asian American teens who flipped the Model Minority Myth on its head when they start doing crimes so better luck. Tomorrow was Justin. Lin's first solo feature recode to feature call shopping things with Quinton leave and there were still students at Ucla. And then I heard that this young filmmaker out of UCLA was making an Asian American film. But I had already worked on a couple of Asian of American films that never finished and it was kind of a fiasco and felt like yeah. It's great to be part of this movement but we're not going to be able to compete with because you can't even finish the movie and when I came back to La. I was so disenchanted anytime I heard about another Asian American filmmaker instantly said this is probably not a good idea. That was already probably a few like maybe five six years in right. I mean I've been already a journeyman into business. You know and the auditions that I would get are the roles that would be a waiter or Yakuza and I felt like maybe the timing was rights. And this idea of being an actor in Hollywood is not GonNa Happen. Right and then I got a couple of phone calls from some aspiring producer. Asian American producers. And they said Hey. There's this guy named Justin Lin. He's a ucla and he's doing this. Asian American film. You should take a look at the script and you should like audition for it now and then two more friends call and say hey. You should really take a look at the script so Justin I actually met at. Danny's on Wilshire and western Koreatown. We met to talk about the script right and talk about the role and stuff like that and at that time. I think Hon- was written as a Filipino character. That drove a hundred civic here like a shaved head. Wow he was really perpetuating kind of like this. You know southern Kelly J. JD M. car culture kind of thug. And I'm from Georgia so I don't identify with I'm into muscle and you know my role models were like James Dean. Paul Newman John Wayne. If you will right and so this thing did not resonate so when I sat down with just and I said Hey I can I addition for Ben. The main character for best. I better tomorrow and just in being the the the patient older brother if you will and he would make a great poker player because slow played it and he's like why not. Let's see so. I went at like three times to read for Ban and knowing the whole time. I'm way too old looking. I don't fit the VIBE and I said to myself if this dude cast me it's movies gonNA suck and compromise vision. So after the third edition called me and said. Hey Man it's not gonNa work out but I would still love free to play on. I was like this is a guy that I would go to paddle with one last shot. Because if it doesn't work out I probably have to go and find a real job and it was so challenging because we had the whole budget in place but then the investors had asked Justin to change all the rules to Caucasian and Justin being. Who is now not GONNA do it? And he started putting the equipment on his credit card but as soon as the credit card companies. No you're maxing it out. They basically linked to the other companies. And then they'll hold your credit card so we're screwed and then I had worked at this restaurant in Beverley hills this cream barbecue place called Hula okay. That is no longer and we shot for a day and then justice said the money's not coming in so we probably have to shut this down and I went to work and I was so depressed right and I'm a server. They're left of a smile. I was so bummed and this is where I feel like everything happens for a reason. Like I don't necessarily subscribe to all these myths and stuff as some Guardian Angel but if if there is such thing that night she showed up and by that you mean John Wong and her husband. Jeffrey go founders of the Cherry Sky Films Production Company. They had been coming into the restaurant for a couple years and there was the first time they saw me not smiling and that kind of goofing off and she said what's wrong way so sadness explain the situation and she said can. I take a look at the script as I have in my car. She goes Why don't you in the director come by the office? Like the talk we went in there spoke for about an hour and then she wrote us a fifty thousand dollar check. Wow there's something like so mythic about this whole story but isn't that the keep a fifty thousand not enough to finish this movie right and so then we're stock and just kind of freaking out and the only person he knows that really has money. Is this guy named Mc Hammer right and how does he know MC Hammer so justin used to work at the Japanese? American museum is to be editor for the downtown Japanese-american Museum and so he was in plans of shooting tomorrow. And at that time the cannon xl one three chip consumer camera was coming out. And if you guys are aware if your techies like big deal so that was the first option of going digital post to film and suggests that went down. I think there was a convention down there to look at the new cameras coming out and Hera was there so hammer's standing next to a kid. You know anything about this camera. And he kind of helps them out and he goes. So what do you WanNa do this well? One day I hope to be a director. They Kinda you know. Talk a little bit and hammered being who is gave him his phone number and said hey you ever need anything. Give call so fast forward. The money's not happening just freaking out the credit cards frozen. I think he had the the phone number like pin to his wall. For you know for Sake right is that what the hell he calls. Hammer Hammer picks up. What's up is okay. Do you remember me Zig. Know what do you want? Here's the situation he goes. Hey it's not hammer time anymore. I can't just be funding these things. But here's ten grand. Do what you gotta do but you know I don't I don't need it back but here it is so if you go and watch. Tokyo drift anytime. There's a Tokyo City. Scene is hammer

Searching for Summer Shipp

"So summer shipp grew up under her given name Dolores in Granite City Illinois. Her mother Cora raised her and her three brothers alone after their alcoholic. Father left the family. Now Cora raise children as Jehovah's Witnesses and this was a religion there's some are continued to practice throughout her life. She did stop attending services but observed religion. She never celebrated Christmas birthdays. She said that every day was a holiday and she liked by her daughter and her friends gifts when it was her birthday. Isn't that Nice good? Sounds like a nice lady really really nice so some are grew up in extreme poverty under pretty rough circumstances and of this. She has pretty frugal but in our young adulthood she married a wealthy man John Ship and she lived for years in luxury however difficult childhood in Granite City. That never was far from her mind. John Ship was the manager for the local metro-goldwyn-mayer branch. Mgm when he moved to Kansas City from Florida in nineteen sixty nine now summer had moved to Kansas City just a few months previously. She saw the city as a place to forget her pass and she's going to create new life for herself. Yeah that was important to her to kind of start over. The childhood was rough so John. Lived in the same apartment complex as a friend of summers and when she visited that friend at the community pool she really caught Johns I. Some are was not a classic beauty but she was really pretty at five foot one inches tall and just over a hundred pounds. She was tiny but she was a bundle of energy sometimes described as sprightly so although John had a girlfriend at the time he broke things off with her to be with summer in October of nineteen. Seventy summer was pregnant and she told John on the night. He took her to see an advance screening of the movie. Two thousand one a space odyssey and after that they decided to move in together and just see if they could make things work. John's apartment became their first home together and their front door was just feet from the pool so John worked as he floated in the water and Sunday himself. The phone set nearby and when it rang he would just paddle to the edge of the pool and work on deals so this is kind of living the dream. I guess float around in the pool. Yeah phones broke their nice good way to do it but he did work hard. He negotiated film showing contracts for hundreds of theaters throughout Missouri and Kansas. So he was really on his way up in the industry at this point so some are in. John got married at the courthouse with John's brother and a friend of summers as witnesses and they had a daughter who they named Brandy. She had read here like her mother's but even brighter and darker and both summer and John were just thrilled with this little girl. They moved out of the apartment and rented a cottage that summer adored for a while and then as the money kept coming in two years later they moved into a duplex in a very upper class area living near professional football players so John left MGM and but an independent Film Distribution Company called Thomas Films and after he bought it he changed the name to Thomas and ship films. The company was more successful than he had ever could have been able to imagine. He made a ton of money so much money that he felt like he'd WanNa Lottery. Are He come up from humble beginnings himself? Yes I think in summer really didn't know what to do with all this money. It was foreign to both of them and I guess summer was able to kind of not focus on it. She just wasn't that interested in things but I think John it kind of affected him and he got carried away with it here. Well I knew her. Religion would seem to me to make her less desirous of money. And what money can buy share? I mean I'm sure she liked not having to worry about it like she had all her life absolutely and remember up until this time she's still going by her original name. Dolores but when brandy was just a toddler that's when she legally took on her new name. Summer brandies middle name was Alexis so some are named herself summer. Alexis ship and by the time brandy was three. John was making over two hundred thousand dollars a year. And this is the nineteen seventies. So I looked it up. And that's about seven hundred thousand dollars a year equivalent in today's money so ton of money tournament in nineteen seventy four. They bought a two story. English Tudor home in the exclusive Crestwood neighborhood and they had a house with a huge private in ground pool. An Art Gallery Jim Asana just everything. Yes so brandy was Kinda spoiled. When she was a little girl. It was almost unavoidable even though she did get a lot of attention as well as things but like I mentioned John's lifestyle just became out of control as his income was soaring. He spent time on the West and east coasts partying with the rich and famous. Eventually he found himself with an expensive dependence on cocaine and pills and is John pulled away from his home and family life into this life. Some are just kind of channeled her love and attention into raising her daughter. So Brandy got a lot of attention. Showered on her. Maybe too much if that's possible. Do you think that's possible to give a kid too much attention? No again it depends on what kind of attention. Well here's my thought on it. You can give them too much attention if you're allowing them to control you like when you're on the phone they're trying to take your attention away when people come over when you have worked to do. I mean there has to be a respect as well sure. That's why I said it depends on the kind of attention right so I think that it can be a bad thing when you get to the extreme. But that's not really the attention being the problem I guess that's more like the The fruits of the attention. Well yeah it's kind of the control like you want your child to see you as being in control of things when you don't want your child to take over control of what's going on day to day. Well I mean it can really be unhealthy and they can have a rude awakening when they get older. And everybody's not just falling over themselves to please them herbs moving so I think that's another issue is you don't want to raise them to feel entitled to everything so anyway I mean they did love her and it was a nice childhood although she was probably a little bit spoiled. Well how does she turn out? She turns out great. Okay so in. Nineteen seventy six. John took brandy in summer to the cons film festival ru and they spent time with David Kerosene is that the Kung Fu guy. Well that's the Carribean family. I don't know which one is which I think David was Kung-fu guy okay. And cary grant roll my love who carry granted yes. He was in one of my favorite movies. What was it sweep? Listen in Seattle now. An affair to remember. I know I was GONNA say that next so afterwards they went on an extended vacation to London Rome and Paris and they flew back to the United States on the First Air France Concorde flight from Paris to Washington. Dc wrong that's That's cool that's cool. That's Nice. Yes where she? Oh totally. And some are just felt like this poor country girl who was living like royalty. John became one of the biggest independent film distributors in the country and they were dining with. Paul Newman Joanne Woodward and Clint Eastwood Big names. Very big names especially in the seventies absolutely well when still around working yeah. He's still big but as her life was changing. Some are really didn't change. Who she was and I respect that. While John was traveling all over the world she stayed home and spent time with her daughter. She also invited other children over for play dates reading books and singing with them so she liked to share in her good fortune which. I think is so important. She even took time to volunteer at a home for emotionally disturbed young women and as a reward for good behavior. She would bring some of the girls to her house to swim for a day and loved it and they worked hard and did things so that they could earn a day at the pool so are like summer. She sounds like she's cutter head on straight and she's living the life. Well you know it's funny because they started reading the book about summer than I found online and I had no idea I was going to do the case but I did just feel such an affection for this woman that I enjoyed reading the book. It wasn't like work and I really enjoyed being able to Read about her in her life. Of course Jon was away a lot of the time. And he had his drinking habits in his drug habits so understandably their marriage suffered. There is a large Christmas office party in the late seventies when summer walked in on John and he and other parties were snorting large amounts of cocaine right on his desk so she walked out feeling pretty angry and worried at the same time. Sure I mean not only worried John but for her daughter you know. It's just very risky behavior. That he was getting into their relationship was getting more and more distant. Rose probably not a lot of good that comes out of a cocaine addiction or a drug addiction for that matter in marriage right. Something's going to happen well and it's interesting that when things stopped going so well for John and he has to really deal with things he does get better. So by nineteen eighty. His company started going downhill and the small films that John Distributed. Were really being snatched up by the major film companies without that business. He was quickly falling behind on his debts and he fell into some deep financial trouble because he hadn't saved enough. He was a big spender and happens. Cocaine is not free. I know but wouldn't you just put enough in a savings somewhere? In case the bottom falls out as a backup will most people would but a lot of people disfigure that. There's no end to this stuff. I guess you feel that way now is at this very very successful company. Money's just rolling in. I'd be of the opinion that this no change in that things are going to keep happening for me. Well and I'm kind of surprised that the way summer grew up that she didn't squirrel away more money because I personally waiting for the other shoe to drop and I liked to be prepared. Well Yeah but she did. She work well not really now. Not at that point or any money. She had came through her husband. Sheriff so what you're going to say to him honey. I need an extra thousand this week. 'cause I'm saving for when you go bankrupt? Well I just say. I WANNA start a savings account. I WANNA put a thousand dollars a week away and it shouldn't have fazed him when he was making so much

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

The Hazards of Making Movies About Real People

"The I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as many of the Hollywood reporter and Matt has come up. Many times in Hollywood does what it loves to do which is to make make movies and particularly awards season movies based on real people that controversy follows and we're seeing more or less at the same moment to different controversies sees. One of them involves Clint Eastwood's new movie Richard Jewel. which according to the Hollywood reporter's awards reporter Scott Feinberg up ends the Academy Me Awards race? It's it's GonNa be very very popular. He thinks with hatemi members in numerous categories. I'm assuming that probably includes picture but in this movie Richard Jewel. Joel this is about the security guard who tried to warn about the Olympic Park bombing back in Nineteen ninety-six a real event. He is portrayed in this movie. Of course he. He was excused of having been involved with the bombing. He was completely innocent and his life was M- very damaged by this. But I'll tell you what life is being damaged now day day in this movie have character a woman reporter who Allegedly in the movie sleeps with a source with an FBI source to get a story about about this and this person this real life person whose name is used. Kathy scruggs is dead and cannot speak up. I mean this is an outrageous thing to accuse as a reporter of that is a firing offense as you know if you were to get wind of one of your people at the Hollywood reporter sleeping with the source to get stuff and I will tell you in my life there. There have been occasional offers. But that's not something that real reporters do and the editor of the Atlanta Journal Constitution where this person worked is objecting to this and I will just now. This is a Clint Eastwood movie. Clint Eastwood is clearly very conservative. Possibly part of the trump you know the reporters play reporters are fake news world and I honestly Kinda Hope. This becomes the controversy. Because I think it's outrageous. Well it's also part and parcel of the film this. This is an indictment according to the reviews that have come out of both the FBI and the media and how they handled this situation with Richard Jewel. And I don't I don't think anyone is saying that this was the finest moment for either of those institution absolutely not but it does cross the line there to suggest that a reporter did something like this and it's also a trope like you've seen this in other things with sally field. I'll never forget it. I was like well. Paul Newman hard to resist about. We don't do this right and even more recently. If you look at the character in house of cards played by Kate Mara her relationship with Kevin Spacey. Right if you look even Amy Schumer in trainwreck. I mean that was. She was sleeping with the subject of her story. So this is like a trope that comes back and and I am not what a female journalist but I see how deeply offensive this is And also not necessary like you. Don't need it's Lizzie. And let me just turn quickly to this apple premier. You know apple is trying to plunge into this world. It's been a bumpy ride. We've talked about. They have this movie. The banker they were going to have a premier they cancelled it. Why did they cancel it because the son of the subject and the stories about a black man who this is a real story again of who recruited a white man to front for his financial business sixty years ago before the Civil Rights Act? This is a real story. But they have been using this guy. Son is the sky named Bernard Garrett Junior to promote the movie and IT Turns Out Bernard Garrett has a couple of half sisters who say that this guy had sexually molested them for years ears and this has now blown up. It's a different kind of hazard. Apple acquired this film. But when you don't vet things carefully this hazard that can happen. Yeah that's an interesting question because apple bought this movie after it was already made and neither apple nor the filmmakers knew about this controversy until about a week peak before the premiere and obviously the allegations are very specifically time. But now they've got to figure out what to do with this movie. That has this. Explosive allegation dropped their wives. Yeah I mean I just saved. Proceed with caution when you're doing true real life stories and I think it's a cheap out to Take on someone who's dead and can't speak up. Thank you thank

"On Paul Newman in his thirty five year racing career and Willie was one of the amazing pieces of research that we found because Willie got his. Professional start in racing in America via Paul Newman and. So when we did the dock we had knew that we had to interview Willie. And so we went out and I interviewed Willie in Texas at his ranch. And when I interviewed Mike him right back, and I said, and we have to talk t-, and frankly, like once adamant I dove into the story and adamant Willie both of us both of us had the same conclusion which was how has no one ever made this documentary yet. How are we the first ones who were like this has to be made? So that was, you know, and the rest has been history, and we've become very close with Willie, and he's mazing person. Why is it unique that you or someone in the racing community? At the time I started. You know, my dad race cars when I was a kid actually race motorcycles. And then he started racing sports cars, but, you know, we had a family business that my grandfather founded in nineteen twenty seven was very successful. So he couldn't he races a hobby. And so I started traveling with him when I was young and I, I decided at nine years old. What my career was going to be. And. And, you know, I was up in my grandfather's ranch and driving his vehicles around. And, and by the time I got out of high school. It was planning my trip to start my career in England because I wanted to be a Formula, one driver and I didn't want to be in NASCAR or IndyCar at the time I eventually wanted to go to IndyCar, but I wanted to start with Formula one and it worked it real we did. Well, I want my first championship there. I met Mohammed Ali there at the same time and that was that was the beginning. For our audience as well break down the difference between NASCAR driving Indy driving and Formula one driving, because not everyone may be familiar, well NASCAR and IndyCar predominantly in the United States. And there as a matter of fact, IndyCars up in Canada. Now's cars mainly southeastern sport. And with this demographic, Indy-Car is all over the country in some parts of the world formula. One is the NFL auto racing. There's nothing even close to it. Two for the driver in formula. One whose Lewis Hamilton. Who happens to be black? His salary is fifty million a year. That's how big Formula one is their budget any race for Germans. He racist from her Sadi's their budget. A year is four hundred million IndyCar the biggest IndyCar budget might be thirty million. That's how big and now car might have a budget about the same formula. One is just a totally different planet. He started your career. Nineteen seventy seven in England. When did you drive, the five hundred in ninety one I came back to the United States and, and I didn't. And I was when I was in England when I was in Europe. I was a racing driver. That's how I was abused. When I came back United States, I wasn't black racing driver. And though the it the, the red carpet wasn't rolled out despite my success over there. So, you know from the people I met. Jim Trueman for example, than Paul Newman. When Mohammed Ali was quite a mentor, but he didn't finance. It was it was really Truman to Newman. And then it was Mr. Cosby who spent the money to put me in Indy five hundred. If it wasn't for Bill, I would have never been in five hundred. He's been nine and a half million dollars on my career. Your career has lead you to encounter certain challenges as a driver here in the United States versus being a driver in Europe. What happened in how did you deal with it? Well, there was two different elements. I had to deal with corporate America wasn't very supportive. The manufacturers General Motors, etc. They, they, they had no interest in and supporting what, what, what I was doing despite being being away winning race driver. Rate winning is winning. They, they didn't care with I could win or not I was a black driver. And so that was one of the on the track. You know it was death threats. Of course, there was inward, of course, and I loved that I loved it, it was just that was very motivating to me. And, and, and I add my fair share of fistfight. And after the last fistfight I had no more problems. I take it. You were the last man standing or you know, they got it after that. And that's how I was raised. And you know, there's right and there's wrong. And when you're in the right, you don't turn cheek and you don't back down. And that was the, the element I was doing. But by and large I was very well respected in sport because I was fast and because I could win where did you drive come from to want to be, and succeed, as a Formula one driver? Well, I mean I was exposed. One of the upsides, I had is that my dad knew while all my dad's friends were racing drivers. And I was exposed to the sport. And as as a kid. So I.

"Have Shawn Levy with us. And he is we've talked to you before I think we had you on for your book. Paul Newman a life. I'm pretty sure several years ago, and you are, oh, you're a delicious writer, your new book, the castle said life death love art and scandal at Hollywood's. Chateau Mont you totally made the walls of this. All tell talk with your delicious research, and interviews. Thank you so much. What, what did I start? Oh, I mean, I'm telling you, this is Laurie. And I was reading your book poolside at the Balaj, yo. And it was kind of delicious reading about this kind of amazing hotel in Hollywood. And then I am insane. Right across from the Flamingo and sort of the intersection of how Las Vegas and Hollywood. And the stories I just was like just so delight. To read what made you be interested in unraveling, the. Chateau mont. Well, I always wanted to write a book about the sunset strip in and I could never quite figure it out. And in twenty-six teen I was looking for a new book subject with my editors and was batting that sunset, strip idea around one of the editors said, well, what about Chateau Mont, and it was like a completed Pickety the whole book appeared in my head in one piece? I mean I didn't know what I would find. When I did the research, or what people would tell me, but I knew the shape, the book would have in what place my foot strip idea would have in it. So it was kind of like half my idea have good fortune. Well, and, you know, I think the thing is like, if you think, oh, this could be a dry book. I it because there's an endless supply of famous, people that you have stories about that. You tell in cast the castle in sunset. It's almost like the. Hotel in itself. Is this whole other character? And to me, it felt very like I was just reading a great fictional story. But about a real place. I mean, that's you really were making the walls talk to talk to us when we read the book. Thank you. Thank you biography of a building. Yeah. Building happens to be on this famous porn on a famous street. It had five or six ownership periods that represented different phases of history. And each of those phases in entertained famous guests so people come and go just like in a hotel, Jean Harlow, Roman Polanski James Dean, John Belushi. But the hotel is there, and that was the that was the fun of the story that I got to tell the downstairs story, you know, the maids, working values and youngsters story, which is the celebrities, one of the things about the Chateau Mont that Lori nyc spurious. Is the first time we went there? We couldn't figure out how to get in figure out how to get in. Yeah. Yeah. And it's changed over the years. The where the restaurant is now used to be the front entrance and you could come up from the street or the parking valet area. Now it doesn't look like an entrance at all. But that's probably because it was built as an apartment building. It didn't have a grand driveway, and you didn't see it from blocks away and say, oh, that's where we're going. It was twenty three discrete units all what their own kitchen, obviously, since their apartments and sitting area and bath. And when you go in there now you have a sweet there are no regular hotel rooms every everyone's got a, a large setup. Yeah. And that, that added to the privacy, you didn't have to come through a grand lobby or have a greeted by, in a public place by someone who was parking your car. You pull up in a in a garage. Right. It's, it's so Sean when you're researching the book because boy. Sure, this was just amazing to put together and board. The some of your surprises. Oh, golly, the book is filled with. Yeah. I know what ones. Do you think that we talked about before that people got knew about are ones that you absolutely? No one knew this story on their things in there. I didn't know the John Cheever had stayed there and written unimportant story, written about a hotel, extensively, even cheaper scholars hadn't connected him to my mom. I didn't know about an owner named Irwin Bredhauer, who owned the hotel for more than twenty years and funded resistance to Hitler in his native Germany, on the classic cinema. And then became a very progressive, owner of a Hollywood hotel, Chateau mama. I didn't know prior to writing the book was the first hotel on the Westside of Los Angeles to be racially integrated. So we just filled with things like that little things, you know, the guy who owned the hotel for year, and his wife wound up being one of the chief advisors to the grew ROY. Rush took over the town in Oregon. Document. That, right. Right. One of that guy is one of the Bhagwan line nieces. Closest confidants was a woman whose husband owned the hotel for a year. You move in, when they were getting a divorce when, when did it become like the sane or whatever, you know, if you're if you're a famous person if you want to be seen go to the Beverly Hills hotel, if you don't want to be seen at the Chateau Mont when did that reputation come into play that started very early. The apartment house was built in twenty nine it was sold and converted to a hotel in thirty two and after that, Jean Harlow was there one hundred during which time she cheated on her husband. And deal glee wilder was staying there. I got adopted by movie people pretty quick. And they realized it was different from the Beverly Hills or the Beverly Wilshire, or the bachelor hotels. All of these were very grand and lovely places, but they were very public places with restaurants and big lobbies, long, driveways. And people would see you come to go. Chateau Mont, you came, and went and nobody saw you. Right. It's unbelievable. Yeah. You know what? Okay. So talking about, like, when, when we get to the chapter in your book, where you talk about everything that happened as far as John Belushi, you know, his last days or whatever, however, you want to say that, but the thing I really thought was very interesting was, you know, the, the p this stories that you got from people about how mad and upset people were about the wired the book by Bob, Woodward about Belushi, that people really felt. I don't know he misrepresented how he was going. And there is a real saying, I think, on John's memory. When that book came out, right? Yeah. You know, a Bob Woodward is a quarter journalistic reporter. He's not his book noted for like their poetry, or their humanity or their humor that he's a curious choice to write about you for you to choose if you're the widow or brother of John Belushi, and they impact approached him because he was from Wheaton Illinois. Same as the Belushi brothers. Okay. And then they got an expose by the guy who wrote all the president's men, right? And you know, there's no faulting the research in the journalism in his book. Yes. You wonder why write this book at all you have no feel furthest man may discard and you have no feel for what was his comic genius. It's just a heartless book. They have you know, as I say, lawless has journalism. Yeah. Right. I know. And I think too, that's why you really are passionate rap, Pat confidential. That's another great book that you wrote Paul Newman a life. I mean, that was just an amazing book and now the castle in sunset it just if you love Hollywood stuff, and I mean, it was so, enjoyable to read, because you are just a hell of a storyteller with your thank you. Yeah. So the good stories I've been able to write about things that I'm passionate about how long did it take you to write the castle on sunset? I would say from the day, the editor said to me what about Chateau Marmon Harvey until the day he got the first draft manuscript was perhaps sixteen months. Yeah. Okay. It was always going to be a quick job. Some books of taking me two to three years, this one, we knew was sort of, like light and summer reading, and, you know, kind of a beach read and you, you don't wanna labor over something like that. I think one I've labored. I've produced the work, but they don't need quite the same way, Sean. You know, have you spent a lot of time, then at the Chateau Mont, not as a guest during.

"Okay, everybody get ready. We're so excited. We have Shawn Levy with us. And he is we've talked to you before I think we had you on for your book. Paul Newman a life. I'm pretty sure several years ago. And you are, oh, you're a delicious writer, your new book, the castle son said life death love art and scandal at Hollywood's. Chateau Mont you totally made the walls of this. All tell talk with your delicious research, and interviews. Thank you so much. What, what, what are nice way to start? Oh, I mean, I'm telling you, this is Laurie. And I was reading your book poolside at the Balaj, yo. And it was kind of delicious reading about this kind of amazing hotel in Hollywood. And then there I'm seeing right across from the Flamingo and sort of the intersection of Las Vegas and Hollywood. And the stories I just was like just so delightful to read, what made you be interested in unraveling, the Chateau Mont? Well, I always wanted to write a book about the fun trip in sixties, and I could never quite figure it out. And in twenty six teen I was looking for a new book of Jecht with my editors and was batting that sunset, strip idea around and one of the editors said, well, what about Chateau Mont and was like? Are you a complete a pithy the whole book appeared in my head in one piece? I mean I didn't know what I would find. When I did the research, or what people would tell me, but I knew the shape the book would have, what place my foot strip idea would have in it. So it was kind of like half my idea hat, good fortune. Well, and, you know, I think the thing is that, you know, if you think, oh, that could be dry book, I because there's an endless supply of famous, people that you have stories about that. You tell in cast the castle in said it's almost like the hotel in itself. Is this whole other character? And to me, it felt very like I was just reading a great fictional story. But about every place. I mean, that's you really were making the walls talk to talk to us when we read the book. Thank you. Thank you. Biography of a building. Yeah. Building happens to be on this famous corn on a famous street. It had five or six ownership periods that represented different phases of history. And each of those phases, it entertained famous guests so people come and go just like an hotel, Harlow Roman Polanski, Jane. Jumba Lucy, but the hotel there, and that was the that was the fun of the story that I got to tell the downstairs story of the maids, working Valerie's and their story, which is the celebrities one of the things about the Chateau Mont that Lori nyc spurious is the first time we went there. We could figure out how to get in figure out how to get in. Yeah. Yeah. And changed over the years where the restaurant is now used to be the front entrance. And you could come up from St. or the parking valet area. Now it doesn't look like an entrance at all. But that's partly because it was built as an apartment building. It didn't have a grand driveway, and you didn't see it from blocks away and say, oh, that's where we're going, it was forty three discrete you all with their own kitchen, obviously still -partment and sitting area and bath. And when you go in there now you have sweet, there are no regular hotel rooms every everyone got a, a large setup. Yeah. And that, that added to the privacy, you didn't have to come to grand lobby or have greeted by, in a public place, by someone who was part, UCAR you pull up in a in a garage. Ray, it's so Sean when you're researching the book because boy, sure this was just amazing to put together and. What were the some of your surprises? Oh, golly. The book is. Yeah. I know what ones do you think that we heard about before that people kinda new ones that you absolutely? No one knew this story on other things in there. I didn't know the John Cheever had stayed there and written unimportant story, written about a hotel, extensively even cheaper scholars hadn't connected him to Tacoma. Mom, I didn't know about an owner named Erwin Bredhauer, who owned the hotel for more than twenty years and funded revisions to Hitler in his native Germany, on the classic cinema. And then became a very progressive, owner of a Hollywood hotel, Chateau Mont. I didn't know prior writing the book with the first showbiz hotel on the Westside of Los Angeles to be racially integrated so just filled with things like that. And then little things, you know, the guy who owned the hotel for year and his wife wound up being one of the chief advisors to the green while rush. Who took over the town in Oregon. Oh, yeah. Documentary that right? Right. One of that guy is one of the bible online, nieces closest confidants will the woman whose husband owned the hotel about a year. When they were getting a divorce when, when did it become like the, the sane or whatever, you know, if you're if you're a famous person if you want to be seen go to the Beverly Hills hotel, if you don't wanna be seen sit Mont when did that reputation come into play. Started very early. The apartment house was built in twenty nine. It was sold and converted to a hotel in thirty two. And after that, Jean Harlow was there on during which time she cheated on her husband. Rahlem and deal. Billy wilder with staying there got adopted by movie people pretty quick. They realized it was different from the Beverly Hills or the Beverly Wilshire, or the Basseterre hotel, all of these are very Glenn and monthly places, but they were very public places with restaurants and big lobbies, long, driveways. And people would see you come to go. Chateau Mont you came to win. Nobody saw you. Right. It's unbelievable. You know what? Okay, so docking about like, when, when we get to the chapter in your book, where you talk about everything that happened as far as John Belushi, you know, his last days or whatever, however you wanna say that. But the thing I really thought was very interesting was, you know, the, the p the stories that you got from people about how mad and upset people were about the wired the book by Bob, Woodward about Belushi, that people really felt. I don't know he misrepresented how he was going. And there is a real sane, I think on John's memory. When that book came out, right? Yeah. You know, Bob Woodward is a quarter journalistic reporter. He's not his car noted for like their poetry or their humanity or they're to Miller, the, the he's a curious choice to write about you. You too. If you're the widow or brother of John Belushi, and may impact approached him because he was from Wheaton Illinois. Same as the Belushi gutters. Okay. And when they got an expose by the guy who wrote all the president and, and, you know, there's no faulting the research in journalism in his. You wonder why write this book at all? You have no feel for this man may describe. You have no feel for what was his comic genius. It's just a heartless book. Yeah. You know, say flawless journalism. Yeah. Right. I know. And I mean, I think too. That's why you really are passionate. I mean you dra- Pat confidential. That's another great book that you wrote Paul Newman a life. I mean that was just, you know, an amazing book and now the castle on sunset it just if you love Halloween stuff, and I mean, it was so, enjoyable to read, because you are just a hell of a storyteller with your thank you. So choose the good stories I've been able to write about things that I'm passionate about how long did it take you to write the castle on sunset? I would say from the day, the editor to me. What about? Chateau marmon. RV until the day. He got the first draft manuscript was perhaps sixteen months. Yeah. Okay. It was always going to be a quick job. Some books of taking me to three years, this one, we knew was sort of, like light and summer reading, and you know, kind of beach read and get you don't wanna labor over something like that. I think one I've labored. I've produced the work, but they don't need quite the same way, Sean. You know, have you spent a lot of time, then at the Chateau Merman, not as a guest, eighty when I was a journalist in Los Angeles, I was there, I treat need to conduct interviews. Okay.

And it's John, Christine ski really adapting the castle in sunset for HBO. Is that true? What HBO that I know. Okay. He has a deal at paramount. So to television production company. Okay, we're not quite who who an announcement yet, but we're always hopeful that John has partners are finding the right person to to do the job. Okay.

"You should bring that up because I remember when you became a part of the Adam Corolla show a couple of friends of mine we're like oh who's as she shows up on nowhere. And now, she never tell. And I remember saying actually, I drove to her house one day seven AM five years ago to do the other show. She was running which was like a podcast that I think you did before you went to your other job only on this. Ever since like. Yeah, you probably learned yet your learner's permit. When Gina would head made her own show to try to cut her teeth in this area and was doing radio. So it's like just. Yeah. You just because you now now of what she popped up in your Twitter feed. And now she this for the first time in your time lime like have been working on this. I I must say look on anywhere. It's doesn't do us any good to try to streamline everyone else's process to prosperity or to announce that he was born on third and thought he hit a triple or to always focus on like daddy's money and all that kind of stuff please dismissive, well, and it can be true. But there's people who are born to rich families who owed eat and their twenty second birthday. You know, it doesn't just because you're dad's rich doesn't mean you're going to be successful. Or you're going to be sober or you're gonna have a happy marriage or you're going to be productive parts. -ociety? I mean. Paul Paul Newman son was dead at twenty six at one of the most successful dads in the world. And we start looking at acting and salad dressing and racing. And everything else. He kind of Moore's guy said something with drugs. He kind of came out to Hollywood it was going to kind of fast track it and got in with the wrong crowd. And so okay, this guy the most sick. Most successful dad around for thirty year thirty or period, but he never saw twenty seventh birthday. So it doesn't mean anything. And even if it does if that's not your story. What do you care? It's like talking about people that are born during the gilded age. They're so lucky. I mean, it's like you've maybe true. But you're not there. So you're here. That's that's where we're at. Sorry. Jordan. Good point, it becomes an excuse process. And we look at like going back to your music example, we see people were like, well, you know, child product he's like Mozart. He had perfect pitch. He could compose from a very early age. When people don't say is that look this guy's dad was a person who specialized in teaching music to children. And so when you look at other students have his they also could compose at a young age they also developed perfect pitch. And there's there's a lot of examples and I was looking at the science behind this for the Jordan arbiter show. There's a lot of science behind. There's a teacher that every single one of his students developed perfect pitch. And when you look at students elsewhere in the music world, it's like one thousand PR it's one in every ten thousand people that develop that and every single one of this guy students develop that so it does come down to training, even things we think might be inborn this isn't maj. Ical? It's almost always developed unless we're talking about something really blatant like height flexibility is almost always any skill that looks like talent is probably just talent that has been probably just a skill. That's been developed so much that it looks easy and the easier people make it look like people who've been on the radio for twenty years or something doing comedy for twenty years. He's here we make it look the more likely it is for people to say that it's inborn talent because the gap between what they think they can achieve what they're seeing in front of them is so enormous..

"Back and most of my days when I was a carpenter, and I always love cars and sports cars and race cars. I didn't have any money. So you can't really go racing. If you don't have any money, and then later on I got into show business and was able to make money and once I was able to make money. I started immediately getting into cars and especially race cars. And then vintage race cars always. And then Newman vintage race cars. You mention Paul Newman. That's a I think that's something. You guys have in common. Of course, the star of cars as doc Hudson. And so let's talk a little bit about that on on the racing side for Paul Newman talked with a list or not too long maybe a couple of weeks ago and she only knew Paul Newman. I should not know anything. About his acting careers racing career only knew Mr. salad dressing guy. And is this part of what it is that you're doing I think raising awareness for for Paul Newman's racing was actually on the set a little movie connection the movie driven at Chicago Motor Speedway. They did a cart race there with Sylvester Stallone and Burt Reynolds as a terrible movie, but got a chance to actually meet Paul Newman. And so talk a little bit about that. You're sort of the keeper of the flame sort of the the museum curator for his stuff. Yeah. If if driven comes on late enough, and I've had enough glasses of wine. I'm not I'm not switching that movie up. I have ten of his race cars. I buy them. I restore some of them. Some of them are in good shape when I get them. And some of them are sort of basket cases, where when I get them. If you wanna go race, one of his cars, you you can't really just do sort of a cosmetic whatever on it. You have to go pretty nut bolt through the car. Otherwise is not gonna work or be safe or or whatever. So it's kind of no such thing as sort of half rebuilding a race cards like it'll be like half rebuilding an airplane or something like you just strip it down or or not I have his.

And it's got driver Paul Newman off to the right under the Ferrari Anheuser-Busch it's for Ari team manager, Gene Hackman has Budweiser. It's a it's a box truck in kind of a transport box truck. Kind of like what are are are looks like our berry one looks like with the cab in the front that sort of box in the back. And if you if you peel back to go back to the regular size picture, you can see that. It's the three oh, eight Ferrari. Number seventy five with cut a lightning bolt kind of Budweiser finish. And then there's that Paul Newman seventy five twenty five hundred Rover. I think it is a Rover right or making that up. I always get that one confused. Our triumphs are it's twenty five hundred there that Paul. Owned had put his livery never really raced. His over liberty black and silver. It's local that car is fourteen miles from where I live. Yeah. Yeah. We went saw what's up the guy wanted way too much money for it. So we didn't purchase it. And by the way, it's not it was in boxes like his head the body there on the frame, but you know, the rest was kind of in boxes taken apart. And if it's the right? It was going to be a deal. Right. So there's there's that right? But a cool old picture from back in the day of the cars being together and being out at a race track. It's hard to discern what race track was that. But it's got like the trailer in the motorhome and the transport Reagan the old Coca Cola cans sitting on the. But during the grass, it's like, it's kind of a rowdy little. Kind of kind of Bush league little paddock area that they've set up for themselves. Right, right. The other picture that somebody sent me that I thought was kind of cool was on EBay. It was Dave stone. He sent me an EBay picture like the buy it now, and it was Newman sitting in my or his at the time two hundred SX be sedan car, and he's just sort of sitting in it.

"And then you just mill about in the bar, the bar is very loud, and very crowded people are kind of like just not paying attention to the show at all. And then in the room when the brakes are happening everyone's getting up, right? So it's like you see like down on below where the famous people sitting. I was in the third deck. Maybe or whatever it was you see like everybody that last year was going over to Timothy Shalam, and like, you know, like talking to heading him. Luckily, right. It was just like everyone was like oh by Dave is in. Intimidate shallow. Having a moment. Right. They're all like milling about talking. So if you're up they're like, hey, you know, we're going to give out another award. It just doesn't work at barely works. Coming back from commercial breaks not to review last year show. But I don't know if you remember they brought out I think it was like Ashley Judd Annabel skewer, and maybe nearer servino, it was like a very powerful moment to bring all these Harvey Weinstein accusers out to have a little, you know, say about me too in those terrible accusations against Harvey, Weinstein, whatever and the room was barely paying attention. It was like you had to like people are rushing to get back to their seats. It was still very loud. And you know, you could tell they were kind of thrown off by the slightly more Golden Globes vibe of the Oscar. So it's like, it is a lot less buttoned up than you. Maybe think. And so I think giving out awards during the commercials is like never gonna work. It just doesn't seem able based on what's going on in the room unless they're just like going to announce it and just be like, hey, this guy one, no speech, right? Good luck. Just like the voice of God. Yeah. I was talking I was at Sundance last week. And I was talking to a pass to kademi nominee wants a who. But and days. Sorry. Sorry. I was talking to Paul Newman ghost. No. But she basically was like like everyone just goes to like the smoking deck at the Dobie theater or whatever. And like, and I think that that's the other thing is that like we can talk about this from the outside, which is like the way that we like to watch it at home or our tradition. But this is also at the end of a very long haul for people in Hollywood physically, and you know, and maybe there is a certain aspect of like, well, maybe they don't want it to be long. And maybe they just want to get to the party. They want to go to vanity fair's fabulous party like which I will be doing red carpet coverage for apparently, you say, stay tuned with my HOGAN. So I don't know. I think that like this whole year has been this whole offer season has been this kind of competing narrative between how we talk about movies in our writing on Twitter, whatever and on kind of issues surrounding movies bid bohemian rhapsody bee green book, and then the industry being like either, you know, covering their ears and saying well allow or just thinking about things in different way. And I think you kind of map that out pretty lucidly. Chris. About why actually the problems surrounding bohemian rhapsody are weirdly benefit for it. Because people see it as a triumph. They got it over the finish line. Not not only do they get a movie done and printed and put in theaters, but it was huge hit a fan hit. And so they see the accomplishment there and less in did they they see more of the kind of positive unless the negative. And so I don't know. I think we have to kind of retrain the way we think about things even when it comes to something as maybe trivial as the link of the actual show. I think that's fair. Let's just a few more things before we get back to Sundance in Richards tete-a-tete with Paul Newman's ghost. We want to talk about Richard mentioned, you alluded to the fact Richard that the academy announced or it was rumored that the long-standing tradition or longest standing tradition of the previous year's winner of the acting award presenting the next year's award that they were getting away from that in order to get more celebrity focus.

We're both neck and neck, neck and neck, and neither one of them should have been in that kind of movies. So I don't know why they were jogging they should been arguing over who could get off the billboard converse. Yes. So between interest. Carsoup rela. Steve. Yeah. There was it seemed to me that Steve McQueen had a competition going with Paul Newman that Paul Newman either was unaware of or didn't seem to care about. Because he lived in the sticks of Connecticut for reason. He he lived out away from everything and live next lime rock raceway out in Connecticut. Just way I mean, I made the pilgrimage from Manhattan to lime rock, and it's you know, it may be a hundred ten miles or something. But. The drive is three hours of wine country nowhere road. Like literally from the middle of Manhattan to to lime rock and then up around. There were sharp. Bob Sharp's house and Newman lived right up in there too. It is way off. It's like you plow your driveway during the winter, and it's really way out there. So numerous probably he was way out there because he liked being way out there, and he concentrated a salad dressing that. Yeah. So he probably didn't have whatever. Whatever McQueen and MacQueen Certa chip on his shoulder and very energetic. Probably had a little more would new Newman will more laid back. Okay. Was he mad that Newman didn't throw as many starlets from a moving vehicle. Well, she was thrown from a moving vehicle have blame him. Well, I I don't know if she was thrown thrown clear, she was knocked she was conked on the head actually. Can cause. Oh, yeah. He did less of that. But anyway, the there was an article on me and variety, and there's this line at the end. 'cause I I realize there is no such thing as doing an article anymore on anybody about anything without some sort of polit- political bent at the end, there's got to be a little something something at the end. And at the at the end of the article somebody sent me today, it it had this line which I'm amused by because I'm now think about the threshold. That it takes to be sexist or homophobic or racist. Or or whatever whatever it is. It's pretty low. So if you listen to these two statements, these these are the two examples of being sexist and anti LGBTQ plus plus community. Go ahead max panel. Right here goes Corolla has been blasted for sexist and anti LGBTQ comments in the past including saying he believes men are funnier than women and that on balance straight. Parents are better for kids than gay parents. Wow. That's wild fuck and scientific racist fucking shit right there. Oy. I don't know check nature, which you do should see what goes on with the parenting or just tally up the number of male comedians and the number female comedians, and you probably see more more male comedians. Again, there's reasons Wim guys wanna get laid badly and Jeff Ross isn't going to pull down a ton of world class pussy. If you've ever been to a party and seed, some of the shit that walks in on Jeff Ross's arm, if he told you he was a roofer in HVAC did track work, or he did, you know van repair, something you have one hundred million questions as to why this young piece of jewelry was on his arm. But if he tells you, I'm professional comedian, you go got it rose master general good for you. So guys ten to develop that because we tend to wanna get laid. And if you take a look at the comedians Certa less, dolph, Lundgren's and more Gilbert Godfrey's, and when you look at all their wives their companions girlfriends or something you'll see a large upgrade.

"They were the sources for this. I just I just who has access to information. So I don't know this is this is rank speculation everybody. But in the course of of obtaining evidence, sometimes issuing search warrants sometimes having other people who are not in the core of the group of people who particular prosecutor's office is dealing with. Sometimes we would have cases where you would have your core agents, but then you would need assistance from some other agency or some other police force that the to law enforcement agents. And again, I'm guessing, but you know, what? There's other folks who have information, but who characterized things in in a particularly strong way. I think they're lots and lots of people who have access to bad information, and they are often willing to share it with reporters. That's the problem that we have a lot of the time. You know in the great press movie the absence of mouse with Sally field and Paul Newman. She Paul Newman who's the source who's the person who's born a who who's burned by Sally field. The reporter. She says we tell the truth in. No, he says, no, you just write what people say and he's right. We do we we're dependent on our sources, and sometimes our sources are no good. And we rely on the wrong people. And that may be what happened here. So what happens now, I mean, the White House tomorrow, we're going to hear a lot more about this. Obviously justifiably because it was the news all day today. President is going to be doing at least one event tomorrow. Which is we expect to be an announcement about the government shutdown. I don't believe he's going to declare a national emergency. But I suspect that he is going to use it as an opportunity to. Describe what he sees as a national emergency. Because he thinks investigation into him is something representing that. He I don't think he's going to let this go. And so I think then it's going to depend on Ben Smith said that they're continuing to report I think it's going to Penn on whether there's more corroboration of their story. What other additional reporting we see I I will say it has been impossible to predict a week out during his presidency. So trying to predict a few days out seeing. No. But look, but I, but we don't we don't know. I mean, we I don't I don't exactly know as as been said, I don't know what they're disputing right. So and I don't think we're going to get more detail on what they're disputing at least not from a an official channel. So we're we're gonna have to wait and see. But but I mean been wouldn't go into details on this. But it would be normal procedure to ask the Muller team to to comment on a story. Of course there reported. No, I mean, listen, I I think that part of all mean all all of our frustrations on covering this story at various points has been that the Muller team just will not comment on on almost anything, and we are all trying to get things. Right. I think Jeffrey makes a very important point which is true for all of us. And and, you know, my husband who is a journalist was the first person ever said this to me that we are all just as good as our sources. And that is true. I think that. With again, I don't know who BuzzFeed sources are and I'm not willing to impugn other people's sources, and and I think the two reporters here have had very solid records on this story. So I would like to wait and see where this goes. That's just me prudent. Right. Thank you. All skip discussion tonight. The news continues went ahead and things over Chris.

"Gary Sinise Gina grad on news bomb, Brian on sound effects and around of Hollywood hand me downs. And now. He's never pulled a bait and switch, but he's definitely pulled a masturbate. The switch. Adam corolla? Yeah. Get it on got get on a choice, but again on mandate get on thanks for tuning in. And thanks for sharing as we are weeks away from our ten year anniversary of podcasting. And it's only because you guys listen, and you guys share the show. So thank you very much for that day Gina grant, Paul Ryan, eat a dick. I wanna thank lifelock and lows and men for sponsoring this half of the show and Gary Sinise in studio good, see again, my friend. Thanks very much. There's many things going on in the military world and the auction world and entertainment as well. We'll get into Gary with that Gary. I'm in love with Gary Sinise. Everybody says he's the best guy in the planet. I know it firsthand because I showed up about three or four years ago to race and Coronado. Coronado island on the military base. And there was the tenant Dan all set up playing for free. And I was so nice as excited see Gehring here the band and the music and gave me a little tour of his tore boss and showed him the race car. All very it's a very American was that the one of the Paul Newman cars, I think I was driving a Bob sharp car that I think was Opole Newman as in Newman sharp racing team from from back in the day or I was driving a. Dots in two thousand roadster that blew the engine up on all figure figure it out. Max panel tell me he was there. But the band sounded great how many how many dates do you guys play a year? We average about thirty. I think something something like that. And visually. It looks like a Seattle commercial there. But audibly, it's totally different Iraq. It's every time. I see commercials where bunch of guys got together in a bar one time like who are these very diverse. Sermon, we're this work, but it's very entertaining though to your personal barn. That would. Is everyone good enough that and you play enough that you don't need to rehearse or how does that work? Well, we've rehearsed formerly about once a year when we learned some new songs, but the band's been playing now for fifteen some years, so we can pull it together pretty good. If we haven't played in four weeks or something we just get up there, and do it and all things military, I'm guessing and all the proceeds going to the military now. Well, the the band is a program of my foundation garysinisefoundation. So you know, I only play for the military. That's that's all I do. I don't play for money or play for anything else is just part of the mission. So it's to raise spirits raise awareness, raise funding that kind of thing and the generosity the American people who support the Gary Sinise foundation, we take that. And we provide entertainment much like the USO does the there's going to be cheap. That's going off tomorrow as you hear the. This and that's at Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale. So it's the big auction weekends. If anyone is curious about the big auction weekends is there's Pebble Beach oxen auction weekend. That's where I would go do the Rolex historic race at Laguna Seca, then they're Scottsdale. That's where all the our EMS and the Gooding's and the meat comes. Maybe make 'em bear Jax and all that. And then some point Amelia Island, Florida. So there's like three big ones. This is sort of the second in the triple crown or first of the year, and these things are getting massive. They they're not only massive massive TV shows some of the best ratings like the scullery channel history channel have just be these auction shows the go up there that bring these vehicles out there. Most of them are for profit. But some are for charity in the charity ones. Oftentimes knock it out of the park because you can ride off part. Will you can write it off past what the value of the vehicle would be? So if an eighty one CJ seven nicely done is thirty grand everything past that you can tell Sam you're going to keep. And that's good. And and that's exactly what they're going to do with, gene. You did that with Richard from fast and loud, right? Yeah..

Now, you know people want candles to smell weird. Now, you know that people want like the white castle candles got the white castle. Candles it, smell like sliders. You've got the bacon candles. Cat sticks. That's the word cat. Dash sticks cat sticks. In eighteenth century, slang, cat sticks or trap sticks were a skinny man's long. Bony legs. Hey, listen. You know, the other night would. Hey, listen, if you can touch it you could catch it if. You know, the other night slapshot screening, there's a scene in the movie, and I've I've noticed because I've seen slapshot eight hundred times, and and so there's a scene in the movie where where Paul Newman is trying to take a nap. He's got a game the big championship game that night. And he just got he just did a a taped radio interview where he put a bounty on one of the other players heads. He said that one of my guys on the team. I'll give you a hundred dollars. If you really nail that clown, and he's talking about McCracken, this guy McCracken. So he was a taped interview. So when he got home he's in his apartment. He's listening to the interview and the part about him telling everybody that he's gonna put a bounty. I guy said he put it puts guys had it just happens. He turns it off and he starts to take off his clothes, and he's in his boxers. He's in his boxers, and he's easing a t shirt, and boxers and he's trying to go to sleep. But the phone keeps ringing because people are like you can't put a bounty on a guy said, and then suddenly there's a knock at the door. The joke is that he desperately needs to take a nap. And he can't because he's getting interrupted by phone calls and people knocking at the door. But the one thing that I noticed as I was watching the movie is just how skinny Paul Newman's legs were because he's in his boxers, boxers and t shirt, and I was like why God that guy? I mean, I have thicker legs did Paul Newman did and and he was athletic guy. And he like he did his own skating in that movie like he could play hockey. So you'd think but he had skinny legs. That was the first thing that we talked about it after the movie too like when we did the Q and A after the film club a screening. I always like did anybody else notice just how skinny Paul Newman's legs were and people were like. Yeah. Paul Newman had really skinny legs. I mean, he was beautiful man had the greatest blue eyes of all time was handsome, amazing actor, but he had some skinny he had some serious cat sticks. Did he had some cats ticks, very very noticeable? The term comes from the sticks. That used to play. Tip cat an old game in which players would hit a short wooden bar called a tip into the air with a long tapering pole known as a cat spic. The tip would be bounced up and then bad it as far as possible with the player who propelled their tip the furthest being the winner. What the hell kind of game is that? I read that paragraph. Eight times. They're still. One more time, maybe we can all try and try and put this together. The term comes from the sticks used to play tip cat. Okay. So the game is called tip cat. Already. I don't know. What the hell's going on? Tip cat is the name of the game. It's an old game in which players would hit a short wooden bar called the tip into the air with a long tapering pole known as a cat stick. The tip would be bounced up and then batted as far as possible with the player who propelled their tip the farthest being the winner. That sounds like hours of fun. Bounce bounce the thing. It's hitting the stick with a stick. Right. So it's like a stick you bounce the stick off the ground, and it bounces up. And then you why are? Yeah. Because who's holding the tip? Maybe is it is it pitched and then bounced in front of you. And then you hit it with a stick. Tip. Dash cat is the name of this game. I'll tell you. It's it's going to sweep the nation again. After after everybody hears this broadcast, people are going to be people are going to be playing tip cat all over the world. There's gonna be a t there's going to be a tip cat network on on cable. The tip would be bounced up and then bad it as far as possible with the player who propelled their tip the farthest being the winner and you hit the she short wooden bar. It's called the illustration. I'm looking at from seventeen sixty seven makes it seemed like it is is pitched to the person. So it's pitched to the person. So what so what so back, then they didn't they didn't know what a ball was. So they were just hitting sticks with sticks. Is that they were doing. So that's like that's like a pitching bat to a batter instead of a ball and then hitting the bat with a bat. The now that the Dan the tip. No, not the tip the cat. Stick. Is it long? It's about it'd be much longer than the tip. Right. Correct. Yes. Okay. So you're hitting a stick with a small you're hitting a big stick with a small stick, essentially. Wow. Okay. So this this there are many varieties again to the most common the batter places. The cat in a small circle on the ground. Tips it into the air and hits at a distance his opponent. Then offer some assert number of points based upon the spent number of hops or jumps necessary to cover the distance. After better things the distant is underestimated, he's at liberty declined the offer or measure that this isn't jumps and score. The number made. Wow. Tip cat. I'm telling you, Dan, we should get a we should get a league going. She get a tip cat league going right now. So let's do it. Right. Finding finding your mate tip Gad is that's the way to do it. Tip cat. There's going to be tip cat stadiums. Around the world. I'm telling you, it's gonna sweep the nation. Tip cat. Somebody takes a picture apparently. It is very popular in Galle donde wherever that is. They sent a picture of what people playing it. Let currently. Yup. Seriously. Wow. All right. Maybe I under-. I underestimated the power of tip cat. Okay. Gillian donde is in India. So in India. Okay. So it's a popular game in India. Tip cat also played in South Asia, Cambodian Turkey and South Africa. Okay. Now, great because less than minutes now, I sound xenophobic. That's fantastic. That's great. This is probably a very important game in their culture. And here I am making complete fun making fun of it. We're making fun of those old time if people. Yeah. Because what are you gonna do? What else? Are you going to do in the seventeen hundred? I got an idea we need. There's nothing nothing else. There's no TV. Why don't we go out and hit a couple of sticks around when she smacks from sticks around outside. All right. Let's take a break for the weather here and then more tip cat talk. Here's your forecast from the WGN Chicago weather center today.

"Hi, I'm Seth Abramovitch senior writer at the Hollywood reporter. And I'd like to welcome you to it happened in Hollywood. It's a new podcast. I'll be hosting with the help of my good friend. Chip pope. Hi there. That's me. I'm chip I'm a TV writer and a pop culture enthusiasts in each episode. We're going to be taking a journey backwards and time and revisiting some of the wildest chapters in Hollywood history iconic films zeitgeist TV shows infamous lawbreakers and just the random weirdness that color the place. We call LA La Land. Yes. And we think that you'll find in Hollywood the more things change the more. They stay the same. And that's what this show is about on each episode. We're going to be going to a key figure in whatever topic recovering and interviewing them. And then after the fact Seth, and I will comment on those prerecorded interviews, so let's get right to it. Welcome to the first episode of Hollywood. All right. Let's do some scene setting its December nineteen seventy three Richard Nixon one month before told a room full of reporters in Orlando, Florida. I am not a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. And in movie theaters. Cross the nation. Robert Redford, Paul Newman were playing crooks in a blockbuster hit called the sting. Then this thirty eight year old wonder canned Billy freed Ken comes along riding high. Having just won the Oscar for the French connection in seventy two. I love that. He's thirty eight year old wonderboy because the industry in nineteen seventy three's run by nine year olds he's young blood at thirty eight. He is he's whippersnapper and -ticipant for his chosen follow picture to French connection is at a fever pitch. His choice was the exercise. I now this was a big budget adaptation of smash hit novel about a little girl who gets possessed by the devil. The film was plagued by infighting delays. It went way over budget. He acted kind of crazy firing people left. And right people thought there was a curse on it yet. There was supposedly occurs. And there was all kinds of reports that this thing is going to be disaster. But when it finally came out, it became the all-time record breaking movie from Warner Brothers at the box office and went on to become one of the most admired and imitated horror films of all time. It's interesting that you should mention the sting because that was just like nostalgic entertainment that took place in the thirties. Whereas the exorcist was very edgy movie. Very hard are a hard arm and pretty much almost an ex. I mean, this is like a cold bucket. A holy water in the face of a pew Besson. Girl. I mean, even the Hollywood reporter this very publications seemed genuinely shocked by it in its review, they called it, quote, an abomination, and quote, and they call it the wretched excess of the year, but at the same time, they also suggested that it may be the most frightening movie ever made and forty five years later, it's still pretty much lays claim to that title of scariest movie ever made this week's special guest. We have the man responsible for making it. That's right director, William freakin. What throw the talk to this guy? He was great. He was absolutely wonderful. I didn't know what to expect. I thought he might be lawf- the wall get some of the films. He's made forget his age eighty two. I didn't know what we were going to get. But he was such a nice guy was just a thrill to sit at the feet of a master filmmaker.
