"There's no business like show business. Stuff to watch this weekend, a young couple played by Harry Styles and Florence Pugh move into the perfect neighborhood and don't worry darling, but the town and its neighbors will apparently are not that perfect. We're all here because we believe in the mission. What are we doing? Changing the world. What are we doing? Changing the world. That's right. There's no business like this party vulture critic Jin Cheney explains for us the highly anticipated film and what it's all about. There's also a lot of drama surrounding, don't worry, darling, that I would need a full half hour to recap it. Suffice it to say, this movie has some not so hot buzz surrounding it. And the movie is not as bad as you may have heard. I don't think it's a great film, but I do think it's a good movie. Florence Pugh's character and her husband is played by Harry Styles. They're in this neighborhood. It looks like it's maybe the 60s. It looks like Palm Springs. But something is off and Florence Pugh's character realizes that right away. So you're spending the movie kind of trying to figure out what's really going on in this environment. She does a fantastic job in the lead role in the movie is beautiful looking, but it is a little bit derivative. It feels like something we've seen before. And the twist that happens at the end of the movie, which I won't spoil is a little bit confusing. So switching to the new Star Wars series and or there's a lot of social media chatter and buzz about this series, which dropped earlier this week on Disney+, tell us about this one. Three episodes of andar are already available to watch right now on Disney+. This centers around cassian andor, the character that Diego Luna played in Rogue One. And it gives me more kind of Blade Runner vibes and Star Wars vibes and a good way. It feels like a more adult kind of Star Wars series than we've seen on Disney+ before. So I do recommend this one. Check it out stuff for you to watch this weekend, vulture critic Jin Cheney on Skype talking with Mark and

"This weekend a young couple played by Harry Styles in Florence Pugh moved into the perfect 1950s American neighborhood, and don't worry darling, but something feels very wrong here at the beginning. Doctor Collins prescribed you a sweet of medications which you were clearly not taking. The question is why? He's lying to us. He's lying to all of us. This morning, Washington Post film critic and for today, with her review of don't worry darling, which has suffered actually from a lot of offscreen drama and controversy. I think the movie itself is highly uncontroversial. It's perfectly fine. It's not a disaster by any stretch. This, of course, was directed by Olivia Wilde, and it's kind of a speculative suspense story set in a perfect mid century town. It's reminiscent of the stepford wise. If you're old enough to remember that movie, the movie actually worked for me until it didn't. And that's when this sort of the big twist comes. I don't think it necessarily sticks the landing. I will say those two leads. Harry Styles is fine. I think he carries the role, gracefully, but not particularly with much more energy than that, but the real star here literal and figurative is Florence Pugh as this housewife who has this increasing sense of something not being right. I mean, she literally does carry the movie on her shoulders. And it's just an incredibly compelling screen presence. I felt like she is probably the best reason to go give this movie a whirl. There's a new movie directed and written by Lena Dunham, who many people know it's called Catherine called birdie, and we're learning about the adventures and issues at times of a young girl in the 13th century. And I wonder if that's the main point here. How many 13th century stories have we learned about tween? It's so true. This is based on the newberry honor winning. Young people's novel of the same name and it was written in that spirit of like, well, here's a historical era that hasn't been mined. And Lena Dunham has really injected this with a lot of her own humor and spirit in joie de vivre. The lead title character is played by Bella Ramsey, who Game of Thrones fans might remember. It has a lot of energy, a lot of spunk. For me, kind of the MVP is Andrew Scott, who's just a wonderful British actor who plays the main character's dad. And there's just a lot of sly humor and a lot of energy and brio to it. And I think it'll appeal to the

I heard you guys know each other from. Besties. Oh nice. We used to call it my sister from another mister. My brother from another mother. Yes. I love it. And you guys both have the same probation officer. We had a show here on E together. Nice. Over ten years ago. So we're both. We're back. Well, welcome back. We don't pay as much as we used to, but concept change. You guys, actress Florence Pugh showed a little nipple speaking of style and it caused the Internet to flip. It all went down at the Valentino hot controller show, Florence is now firing back at the harsh criticism she receive, writing in a long Instagram post so many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were or how I should be embarrassed by being so flat chested. I've lived in my body for a long time. I'm fully aware of my breast size. And I am not scared of it. Now, other celebs came to her defense, including Regé-Jean Page, who told men to step up and be better allies. I mean, did she think did you think do you think that she thought that this dress would cause so much conversation? I mean, it's just a nipple. It's not the first time we've seen it. I thought J.Lo wore that blue shear dress at the Oscars one year and you could kind of see nipples there. For me, especially a whole couture, I like it's part of the fashion moment, but I'm also not super triggered by, you know, nipples. I know for some folks, that's very overly sexual. I mean, to me, in fashion, I think they occasionally make an appearance. Daisy, I don't know. Listen. Listen. I think I speak for many, many women when I say that I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of having people tell women what they can show what they can not show what they can wear, what they can not wear, what they can do and not do with their bodies, stop it. Thank you. Stop it. It is not okay. Thank you. Okay. If men can show their ugly ass, fat nipples, whenever they want. So can women. Yeah. I'm here for it. Cuter. I agree because I will say, if I see a shirtless man and he happens to have a nice region in that. Yes. I am looking at it in a similar way, but it's unfair because in some spaces like let a woman go topless if she wants to. You know, I mean, I understand. People are going to say, but there's children or whatever, but their purpose is to nurture and feed. If you put your hang ups on that, that is on you. I know that society brainwashes you a lot of you have been brainwashed since you were a kid on how to feel about things. It's not the same in other countries. It's mostly just here. That's on you to undo the brainwashing and all that bull crap that comes with what you think when you see breasts. Yeah. It is what you make it. For sure. I know I totally agree. And you know what? I'm happy that people are standing up for her. And Regé-Jean Page, like, I get the sentiment. I'm so happy that you are standing up, but where were you two weeks ago when roe versus wade, what's happening? Why should we be defending women at that point? You know what I mean? Yeah. Exactly. I think this is kind of sort of childish and simple. I went to travel with a friend of mine who had a newborn. And she was like, I'm gonna go feed my kid in this little nano thing over here. And I'm like, you're gonna walk to 5 gates to feed your crying kid. Are you, do you need privacy? And she's like, no, but like, you know, people get weird about nipples. I'm like, you are feeding your child. You better whip that out right now. Yes. And do it right here. And if somebody gives you any lip. Yeah. I will hand it to them, but there was a time where people wouldn't even want to see your nipple when you were in nourishing a child. How random is that? It is ridiculous, and I think that if you have a problem with that, you really need to look at yourself. You need to ask yourself why? I mean so much when it's absolutely normal, it's just a body. But this is where it always goes. And this is the problem that I have. People use their children as an excuse. Like, oh my God, I have children, like my 5 year old. Your 5 year old probably sucked on one too. It is totally fine. Like, if you are scared to have conversations with your 5 year old about nipples, like, come on, you guys. If you freak your children out about it, they're gonna be freaked out about it. If you're like, oh, it's just normal. Everybody has breasts. Everybody has this. Everybody has. We all have the same things. They're fine. We're talking about something that happened in another country at a couture fashion show. Daisy's right. When you go to other countries and you see advertising and marketing, they are, they're sometimes topless. It's not a thing. And the society there, the children, they don't view it as sexual. It's just a part of the body. It's just how we in the U.S. kind of view it through that filter. Immediately, it's sexualized. Whereas other parts of the world, it's not. I mean, not Dubai. It is going to be a big night because the bachelorette returns with not one, but two ladies looking for love and lots of eyes will be on who gets that first impression rose.

It's going to be the apparently the only black widow films since Scarlett Johansson's character actually died in adventures and came this story has said a little before that. And she goes back to Eastern Europe in order to track down and ruined the great Russian spymaster who made her into a spy in the first place. And she also reunites with her fake family with which you were who she was an undercover spy in the United States in the 19 nineties in order to bring this fellow down, so it's a combination of family drama. Shall we say? With a big action, splashy action movie. I found the intimate moments in this film actually better than the action ones, which are in the typical modern way over cuts so that you can't really tell what's going on a lot of time and just overloaded with C G I the real star of the film, Although Johansson is very good is Florence Pugh. Who plays her younger, so called sister. They were sisters when they were undercover spies, and they unite along with their father and mother in order to bring down this terrible Russian mastermind who still wants to dominate the world with his army of brainwashed young women called widows. Uh, the people who Fans of the far Marvel universe are going to love this film. They're going to go out to it in droves. They're going to pay for it and dizzy. Plus, it's going to be a huge success. But it's really a kind of footnote to the series as a whole. It doesn't advance the overall marble saga very much.

]]Securing Public Pensions
"The first star emission disturbing members can be police officers. They came preschool employees and state employees. And what we do is we. We make sure that they have a retirement benefit at the time that they're ready to stop actively working in calpers over the last four years has been making very difficult decisions about the appropriate funding of these pension plans for the future. We'll trust i'm dan. Lewis can this is after the fact and that was marcy frost. She leads the california public employees retirement system. Calpers is the nation's largest public pension system with a global investment portfolio of around four hundred twenty billion dollars that's a figure larger than the gdp of countries like norway singapore and the difficult decisions. Marcie mentions affect the retirement benefits for nearly two million public employees retirees and their families is a challenge facing many states across the country as they look at the best ways to fund their public pension systems. And that's something. Greg menace works on at pugh helping states develop solutions to close the funding gap between what state pension plans odor their public employees. And the money. That's being put aside to pay that bill up. Hugh analysis in two thousand eighteen found that funding gap in the states totaled one point two four trillion dollars. That's with a t and that's the data point for our episode. It's a number. Experts see growing with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic amid those daunting numbers states like pennsylvania and california have discovered innovative ways to ensure pension systems. Keep their promises to retirees. Most people are familiar with 401k. Plans and over sixty million americans saved through retirement primarily through those kinda plans in the public sector. It's different where most of the state and local workers participate in what are called defined benefit plans by and large this distinction where in the public sector benefits are paid for through a fixed payment in retirement And the money is managed by the state and today there's about four trillion dollars in public assets. Invested in stocks bonds alternative investments is the main differences between that. Most people save for retirement. The all of us have to be concerned about our retirement. All of us need to plan ahead. Why should all of us care about the public. Employees pension system a well funded pension system in the public sector. can literally cost billions billions of dollars less every year from the state or local budget as compared to one. That's severely underfunded. The short answer is that in a well-funded system the state or local government is setting aside money each and every year while people are working to pay for their benefits when they retire and as it turns out by doing that it ends up that compounded investment earnings and up paying for the majority of the benefit. I'm in contrast they severely underfunded system. Where the money hasn't been set aside while people are in their working years. They lose out. On all kinds of compounded investment earnings and as a result the majority of the cost comes out of the state for state or local budget. I'm just to provide some examples. We look at pension. Plans in states. Like tennessee and south dakota and wisconsin all of which are close to being fully funded. It sounds like if states are planning their investments properly in a smart way. The earnings made by those investments can pay for the costs to maintain the fund. What happens with states. That aren't fully funded if you look at states like kentucky illinois new jersey all of which have less than fifty percent of the assets set aside that budgetary cost is closer to fifteen percent of revenue on average so that means no state somewhere between one and ten in one in five tax dollars going to pensions that adds up to about a ten billion dollars of additional cost across those three states alone. And so i think this is important from the public's perspective not only because of the impact that can have on state and local budgets and in turn the resources that are available for public services but also because having a well-funded system helps to prevent reductions in workforce or cuts in benefits that you need to attract skilled public workforce to be very specific. That means there's less money to buy police cars or paved roads or any other public service. That taxpayer dollars fund right. I mean and that's that's a big deal. I mean the government is always looking to contain costs whether it's healthcare or other issues this is. This is a big ticket item for a lot of states. That's absolutely right. And as i mentioned before. I think for a larger state and city the difference between having a well-funded system in an underfunded system comes out billions of dollars every year so everything from investments in education and infrastructure to healthcare ends up being strained in the budget each and every year it almost sounds like innovation is sort of old school ideas of like. Just you know figuring out what the bills are going to be a mixture. You got the money to pay for them you know. I think that that's right. And there are two ways in particular where i think innovation plays a role you to first off it has to do with how plans and pension systems planned for uncertainty and some of the states that i just mentioned tennessee. Wisconsin in south dakota very clear predefined rules about how to adjust cost if there's a downturn or investments underperform. This includes building margin of safety into assumptions essentially setting aside a rainy day fund within the pensions system and then also adjustments to worker benefits. That are clearly understood by everybody and so from that perspective i think innovation goes back to looking at the policies and practices that these states have been following for

During the time i was in grad school i had an opportunity to work with the higher education coordinating board in minnesota which set education policy. And i just loved it was the to do research and then to see it. Translated into decisions and policies that had an immediate impact. And i was hooked right from the beginning. I have a deep deep fondness for my home state and the ability to be able to work on policy affected. The state mattered. A lot to me. So the end of the day. I stayed in minnesota and i went to the legislature an unparalleled opportunity to not only see the sausage getting made but to be part of the sausage making process so for me it was also an ability to continue to learn. I had in grad school. Obviously done a lot of research and a lot of presentations and a lot of conversations on that. But i had never been up front and involved in the policy process so during your tenure is the time to pew is really made its evolution into much more of a policy oriented organization as opposed to a grant making organization. You eventually became the director of the pew center on the states. Which gets us to our topic of this season. How did that come about. And what was the whole idea behind. Pugh getting involved in a center focused on the state's well. We had had a couple projects just before that one of the very first one. I did when i moved over to the program. Side was a pretty significant multi your investment to help states invest in preschool for kids and based on the very compelling research that was not widely known at that time that there was a very good economic return on investment. When states were able to do that it was at a time when states were very frustrated about their lack of progress on k. Twelve or form so. i think they view preschool. As a really great place to invest and we viewed it as a place that was ripe for progress at the state level so we moved that program forward and worked in several states. And as we did that it became very clear that the opportunity to engage in different kinds of policy areas at at the state level was something that you should really take a very close look at so launching. The pugh center on the states allowed us to bring together different kinds of policy whether it was education. Or how well states perform or sentencing and corrections and develop buck capacity at pugh that allowed us to work across different issue areas but bring some of the same approaches and thoughtful research to bear. That would help. State policy makers make better decisions.

UNTO THE SECOND GENERATION
"A young veteran tells how few rupp experiences pushed him into a and how he was therefore spared years of suffering. My eyes opened onto a hazy world. Two fuzzy came into focus slowly. I realized i was in bed. And that the objects were my feet in case in a harness affair. I blinked slowly as i shifted my gaze to my arms. They also were held in some sort of strap or to gradually consciousness. Returned enough to let me know. I was in a hospital looked about the room. At one end of the bed near the foot was a printed card and beneath that was a chartered graph. I couldn't focus enough to make out the chart. But the card contained two words acute alcoholism. Then it came to me. I was in a hospital. The place hawaii the year. Nineteen forty eight. I closed my eyes and tried to think. I remembered having had a little drink of whiskey with a can of warm beer as a chaser. Then something happened. What was it. i couldn't recall. I opened my eyes again and a shadow fell across the bed. Standing there was a gray haired man tall trim and in uniform. There were gold bars on his shoulders. I'm in the us navy. This must be the doctor. He asked how i felt. I didn't reply. A cormon stood beside him. The doctor motion to the corman to undo my straightjacket and leg restraints. I moved about a little. The doctor sat down beside the bed and asked me how i felt. Do you know why you're in here. He queried. I could tell him a lot of reasons why i am here in elke ward at the age of twenty. I don't know how. I got here this trip but it doesn't matter very much i'm an alcoholic. Don't mince words. i'm a rummy. I can't control my drinking anymore. It controls me. I remember back in high school. When i was fifteen we all had lockers. The other pupils kept books pencils paper gym equipment and such stuff in their lockers. I did too. I also kept beer at fifteen. Was strictly a beer drinker. I didn't graduate to the hard stuff until i was sixteen. The other kids would light out for the hamburger hud's or the ice cream parlors. The pizza joins or bowling alleys after football games and dances. I didn't. I went to saloons where i could get drinks. I didn't give a whoop about anything. Scholastic i got a job after school pumping gas and worked until ten or eleven. At night i was the kid of the crew. I tried to mimic the talk ideas moods and even the drinking of the older man. It hurt to be considered a kid. I talked out of the side of my mouth as they did. I smoke this much. Tried to drink as much and do everything they did. Only more so. I found i could boost my income by selling gas. Coupons rationing was in effect. Then that i'd taken in earlier from other customers by filching nichols from the coke machine by short sticking customers on oil and by selling oil. I drained out of other cars. School was getting to be one big bore. I was skipping classes about two days a week and doing no book work whatever. I was failing in everything. The principal had no alternative but to expel me. I beat him to it. I quit when i was just past sixteen. I had a drinking problem on my hands even at that time. So did my parents. They both drank like fish. They had been drinking for many years. And we're getting progressively worse. Homelife didn't mean much to me. They were kind when they thought about it. But that wasn't often i wanted love and affection but i didn't get it. I did as i pleased most of the time. I wasn't burdened with parental guidance. And i didn't want any. I ran away for the second time with another lad. We got to omaha for my home in chicago. We headed out of town walking. No money cold and hungry. It was late at night. We spotted a church in a small town. We broke open a window and got inside. We started to light some matches to see but the draft blew them out so we rolled old newspapers together and made torches to find a good soft pugh and get some sleep. My torch blazed madly in the pew caught fire. We heard some yells outside. A busload of basketball players had been passing and saw the flames. They summoned the fire department. And the sheriff. I spent the next three days in a sell. My dad who was a newspaper man and had some connections. Had meantime put a stop on me. And i guess that report went all over the country. We were identified. And i was put on a train for chicago. The sheriff bad as goodbye very happily. I think dad paid him something to let me go
"pugh" Discussed on Pittsburgh's Paranormal Chasing Prophecy Radio Show
"So yes, we're living in some very troubling perilous times right now and sometimes people use the paranormal I always laugh about it. People want to believe in it. But then when you start really showing them that it's really real. then. It scares a lot of people because it's easy to say, well, maybe that's not the way it is but then when you really see it and behold it, then the reality of it becomes quite amazing and so that's the thing about the work grabbed them for so many years now wanting to see the end of days as I believe as it would occur and what I had researched and now seeing these things lining up and following exactly what scripture says is quite amazing. Sounds that you're trilogy has some thought provoking claims about the deception within the Catholic Church, the new world order secret societies power hold on the world leadership in the identity of the Anti Christ. So why don't you talk about that? Well, you know the thing that's most interesting to me was, how could a man come on the scene and really be so I guess colliding or charismatic to make us not realize that this would not be a good person but in fact, would be Satan literally in human form. And so many times we go back and we look in history that people have pointed fingers like it Mussalini or like Hitler are some of the people way on back Nimrod some of the other people that they said have been Anti. Christ. The thing about what we're looking at today and how scripture tells us. That is not going to be someone that we would think was the anti. Christ we will think this individual is the Messiah and a lot of times it slightly when people start pointing fingers people, they typically WanNa find somebody that's music and very cruel and that nature. And really scripture tells us is that it's going to be just the opposite and it has to meet the specification. As what the Jewish people believe a messiah will be, and that's why they're confused and while the world becomes confused because a lot of people who Believe in that Jewish Judaism kind of religion. They don't believe that Jesus is ever been born sultanate the qualifications. The person has got to come from a lineage that is connected to King David and they are waiting for that Messiah who have to fall into the guidelines of what scripture says. looking at the tribe of Dan that's mentioned in scripture as an adder in the way. At the same time we know that the person has to have royal status because even the book of Daniel will we're told about this prince, the People's prints and that he has to have this standing to be able to stand in a temple and proclaim himself to be God he does not meet the specifications of that. Then he can't just walk in and say I'm royalty I can be a King I can be a prance and I can deliver improved and I'm the Messiah Come to save the world if he cannot do that then he doesn't meet the specifications and so that's one of the things that. I've seen people say like Hitler, and people like that. He just didn't meet the qualifications of what scripture tells us to be looking for, and the fact that we have so many other things happening in the world like you were mentioning. About you know the lawlessness and the perverse of things, sexual things that are going on the marriage breakdown love herself. We see people who are very selfish. We see the hostility of the nation's against Israel, and then we see things like you know false prophets, process teachers, the love of money, and then the really the removal of truth we can't really tell who's telling us the truth and we watch us..

Under Trump, US reputation hits rock-bottom: Pew global survey
"For the past three and a half years the united. States has not been very favorably viewed by other Western countries that's according to survey results from the Pew Research Center but a new study they paula shows that our reputation has taken even deeper nosedive just over the past year Jacob poster is at Pugh in Washington Jacob Pugh does a lot of surveys and this is not the first one about America's image what made this survey nick. Well, we've actually been doing surveys for twenty years now, and we've been tracking the international image of the US during that time period and in the current survey in two thousand and twenty, we're finding some the lowest ratings we've ever found among traditional allies of the United States in terms of US favorability including in Japan, the UK Canada you know more than four in ten have positive views of the United States and these are some of the lowest levels of favorability we've ever measured for the United States. The title of the survey says a lot. I think US image plummets internationally as most say country's handled corona virus badly. So how did your survey respondents about the US and the corona virus like what was one of the questions? Where we ask people on whether various countries including their own were doing a good job of dealing with the corona virus outbreak and on that question when we asked about it for the United States, no more than twenty percent and any of the thirteen countries that we surveyed said, the United States was doing a good job of dealing with the krona virus outbreak and that's different from what people told us about their own countries and most of the. Countries we surveyed people were actually fairly happy with how their own country had dealt with the outbreak. The there are places where the US image is seen more positively than other places. What country had the most people who thought the US was responding well to the coronavirus in terms of response to the coronavirus no country was over twenty percent. But when it comes to the US favorability, there are countries were a majority still have a favorable view of. The US, but that number has shrunk dramatically in the last year. South. Korea's one country where fifty nine percent have a favorable view of the US. But even there that's down almost twenty points from two thousand nineteen when seventy seven percent favourable view of the US
2020 Fall Movie Preview
"Hi everybody I am Peter Travers and welcome to this special edition of Popcorn where creed you all the movies opening between Labor Day and New Year's Eve I know wait what aren't we in a pandemic Will really be moved this fall and theaters to show them in I mean the answer to both those questions is a huge. Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down. So let's start with the blockbusters that are out there. Number one is tenant. Brain Teasing epoch from Dark Knight Director. Christopher. Nolan. That's geared to fire up the fall season and in theaters and with your mask and distancing in place you can strap in for this kind of Christopher Nolan throw ride and watch the spy master he's played by John David Washington give James Bond a run for his money you know you just have to. Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped. Jaw dropped pulses. Oh, pound all that good stuff movies and back baby. So what else do we have? We have Moulin which is out there right now and you'll check in Disney plus to watch this because it's not in theaters but you can rent it and you could see live action film of the Disney animated hit about a young woman who disguises. Herself as a man to replace her sick father in the Imperial Army the new moon is not musical and there's no comic relief from eating Murphy as the Voice of a fast talking dragon named Moo Shu. This is not that kind of movie. There's no whitewashing but using Western actors in the drawn from Chinese legend and as Rouland the astounding Lou ye. Leads in Asian cast that includes martial arts icon jet. Li is the emperor up and China's leading actress Gong Li as shape shifting witch who teaches on how to survive and prosper in a man's world. Look move on is not your typical princess. She's a warrior fighting for her place in the world prepare to be well. Next up wonder woman one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, the sequel to the two thousand seventeen smash that made a star of Gal. Gadot, remember her places the DC comics immortal wonder woman into the cold. War where she does battle with the media tycoon played by Pedro Pascal and the villainous Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig always to me an asset in any movie Chris. Pine also returns Steve Trevor The American. Pilot that one woman loves I know didn't he die the last time during World War? One people you gotta go with this this is Hollywood. So if we can borrow wonder woman's last sube truth for a moment, credibility isn't the issue here. It's the show stopping stunts engineered by returning director Petty Jenkins executed by Godot, and she's a formal Israeli military structure. So you know you're in for a really good time. Next up is black widow look wonder woman has competition already. You know we've been waiting since spring for Marvel to let its first solo black widow epic out of storage and into theaters. Now, the wait is over Scarlett. Johansson is back in action as Natasha Romanoff Aka black widow.

It's not just one black widow you can become a black widow tells witness business. So Watch your back wonder woman next up candyman there's nothing like the Primo horror. Film to get us all back in the dark of a theater where we can scream bloody hearts out behind a mask of course, end with get outs Jordan peele writing the screenplay. This direct sequel to nineteen ninety two's cult fright fest stars Watchmen Emmy nominee Jadu Martine the second as a visual artist drawn back to those housing projects in Chicago's Cabrini-green where he was born now the whole place is gentrified beyond recognition but the green is still haunted by Candyman Tony Todd an urban legend who still kills anyone who summoned him by saying his name five times.

Celebrating #BlackJewishUnity Week with the National Urban League
"Next week, two of the world's foremost human relations organizations the National Urban League and J. C. will unite against surging levels of Anti Semitism and racism to declare black Jewish unity week. Together, we will strengthen ties between our nations black and Jewish communities and combat all forms of hate. To discuss the importance of this event and to talk about the challenges of fighting racism I'm joined now by Clint Oda, the National Urban League Senior Vice President for Policy Advocacy and the Executive Director of the Urban League's Washington Bureau Clint, thank you so much for joining us. It's a pleasure to be with you. Now this special week, this black Jewish unity week is not happening in vacuum. It's happening because of rising antisemitism and racism in this country my listeners here plenty about antisemitism. So I just wanted to start by asking you this. It's been a Helluva summer. How are you? I would describe myself as weathered a little bit. We've been going through this quite some time this summer at least the notoriety of these police incidents are is much higher than it has been in the past. So we're we're hanging in there. We don't have a choice. Because this work is so important. And it really does reinvigorate me to see that we've got allies in this fight and we've always had allies in this fight but to see them step up in the way that they have his really reinvigorated me and I'm very excited to keep the fight going. I'm sure that our listeners are familiar with the name, the Urban League because it is etched into the annals of history of this country and anyone who knows anything about the civil rights movement will know the names of the Urban League of the ACP Snick we can go deeper also start really getting to the deep cuts. Tell us a little bit about. What the Urban League has been up to lately and what you've been up to especially over the summer in the wake of the George Floyd killing and other events in recent months while we're one, hundred, ten year old civil rights and Economic Empowerment Organization and we have been working on I'd like to say ending systemic racism for the past one. Hundred Years. we've been doing that through our programs such as making. Housing more Ford audible teaching people how to purchase homes how to stay in homes. We've been helping people to get work meaningful work they can sustain them and their families. We've been working the traditional voting rights area and civil rights area for the entirety of our existence but social justice is taken on a real importance in our work right now as as well as doing all this work in the midst of a pandemic So that's so interesting what you say about systemic racism and then specifically citing home-buying and things like that. You didn't mention education, but I think there's a pretty robust education. Portfolio at the National Urban League as well. Absolutely I think if you look at AJC's goals and National Urban League goals, you'll see mirror images of each other. That's been the real cool thing about this that this partnership and all of these things that people are talking about and I'll show my millennial miss. All of the things that people are are posting on instagram talking about explaining what systemic racism is and why you know wealth divides between black and white communities are so important and underpin. So many elements of of racial injustice today all of those things are things that the National Urban League is. Working on absolutely and I can't say that when I started about a year and a half ago I spent the previous ten years working in the United States Senate including four vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris. I believe crazy how these things happen working for her and the agenda that she pursued is so consistent with the work that I'm doing today. One of the first things we did when we walked into the place is lead a resolution condemning hate antisemitism anti racism xenophobia homophobia. It's as important to her as it was to me and so coming here was just a natural extension of that but. As I was saying just the Times in which we live are so unique and perilous parallels between the early nineteen sixties which I'm sure we'll talk more about and today are really really compelling. It's almost like we're back in the sixties again, I want to go there right now because this week is going to be all about black Jewish. Relations and the story of black Jewish relations is not a new odd. We might be writing a new chapter, but there's a whole book that comes before us here. So what's one element clint of the Black Jewish relationship that has meant a lot to you personally. I would probably say the religious and spiritual aspect of the relationship. Growing up as a as a young kid in the deep South. There were a lot of Jewish people around although they were president. We didn't know it I grew up Protestant Christian and a great story is on Sundays. We were always able to use the parking lot of the temple across the street and it used to just puzzled me is to how generous the temple folks could be. Given that they must have services on Sunday to. Eat of the temple was empty or they were just being generous over time and as I moved out of south, then went to law school and live here on the East Coast I. got a much greater appreciation, not only for the religion. My Wife, for instance, used to teach at a Jewish day camp in new Rochelle New York but just meeting. So many friends of the Jewish faith drawing those connections between my own faith and their own and. Also learning the rich history of black Jewish communities especially in the era of civil rights as a lawyer was a big fan is that really don't have you could come up with a Thurgood Marshall and no understanding of the work at the end of Lacey P., Legal Defense Fund was complete without understanding the role that Jack Greenberg played and lots of other Jewish folks in philanthropy in spirituality and pursue the nonviolence movement just a wonderful partnership over the years. As a religious person myself that resonates with me a lot as it happens our listeners probably talk about this before for college I went to a joint program between Columbia University and the Jewish illogical seminary and actually not migration at the graduation of the class ahead of me which attended representative John Lewis spoke, and of course, John Lewis all of our listeners will remember passed away this summer I think he actually was an ordain ministered and he told a story that I'm sure you've heard before because I've heard until it multiple times of preaching to his chickens in Troy. Alabama and that had a certain resonance in this audience of basically all Jews including some we're going on into the rabbit. Those ties between our communities where were not everyone is a person of faith but certainly, there is deep faith and religious history kind of threaded throughout our communities I think those are really really powerful things to focus on. And I hope over time you take a look at surveys of religion in the country in other pugh has done some study in this area religion is trending down a little bit. Don't always necessarily consider themselves religious if you look at community surveys and so it's really important to reinvigorate this relationship and put it on a firm spiritual pudding in Judeo Christian tradition is so rich in the African American community and there's just so much there to really build on. I'm really looking forward to getting that history more prominently understood and remembered in our communities. So when we're talking about black Jewish unity right and we're talking about building black Jewish unity they're really two levels to it, and this is something that we talk about with a lot of our advocacy work. At AJC, there's the grassroots and there's the grass tops right. I want to ask you about both. Let's start with the grass tops right at the high profile level at the celebrity role model level, the politician level what do you think? Needs to happen there to demonstrate the Jewish people and black people should work together and are stronger together. The grass tops may be one of the more important roles in unity and understanding. We are a celebrity driven culture for better or for worse and ideas have a lot more resonance and a lot more acceptance when someone that you know and admire to saying the same thing. So grass tops to that extent are the key in moving opinion. Notions like reparations notions like black lives matter notions like social justice have mood and pretty quickly I think because athletes because celebrity on television and other artists have been saying the same thing and in a short period of time we've seen. Opinions shift in this country not just age not just religion not just race, but everything seems to be moving in the right direction from a popular standpoint. The grass roots which we're going to talk about next is where you really determine how sustainable this movement is. Right. Yeah. So tell us about that I mean in our neighborhoods and our schools in our churches, our synagogues mosques, how can we strengthen those relations? Sure. I've seen a lot of encouraging evidence that we can do this at grassroots level. This is a very human. Very, empathetic movement when we're talking about grassroots, we've seen some of these grassroots efforts come up in. Pittsburgh for instance and New Jersey. And in Brooklyn where when horrible acts of hate murder violence take place the communities come together and they usually come together I with religion. It's the pastors it's the churchgoers. It's the temple goers that really give me some hope that we aren't just a moment, but that we're in a movement. So I think in many ways, the church and the faith community are are in central piece of grassroots. That's kind of what I'm seeing sort of on the ground right now I think black Jewish unity week can drive those grassroots even deeper because understanding the tragedy of the moment is not nearly as important as understanding these deep historical ties right in our faith and our families and what we want from each other in shared history sometimes things that aren't so great sometimes shared history of oppression. Lutely, and for our listeners WHO WANNA learn more about black Jewish unity week, they should go to AJC, dot org, slash black, Jewish unity, or text black Jewish unity all one word to five to eight, eight nine not to keep hitting the faith note here you know we're we're a pretty secular organization in JC but I love what you said about the houses of worship I live on the upper west side of Manhattan which is this incredible. Kind of Jewish bastion historic whatever and if you go twenty blocks down for me in twenty blocks up for me, you probably are GonNa pass by twenty synagogues total and we're also steps away, I mean. We're a mile two miles away from Harlem and the two neighborhoods are very different and that's something that's worth exploring as well. Why that is how that happened etcetera, the strengths and the challenges of both communities, but I was in synagogue on. Chabad after the shooting in Muncie and Lo and behold there in the front row, was a a delegation from church in Harlem that wanted to come in and to be there and to show solidarity, and they got up and spoke after services, and then fast forward to this summer were all obviously in lockdown. But the rabbi of the synagogue made kind of Zoom appearance at that churches services after the killing of George Floyd talk about solidarity with. The black community in the wake of the killings of and Taylor George Floyd and so many of the challenges of injustice that are being faced right now and I think you're right that the grassroots level it. So often does start in those kinds of houses of worship, our religious leaders reaching out one to the other in something that you said, really struck me about the proximity of Latte community and Jewish community in relatively small plot of land. As a policy Wonk I'm sure you appreciate this but either just for the benefit of your listening audience, blacks and Jews were both subject to the same kinds of redlining restrictions in many ways throughout much of the United States where banks would identify areas and they would say this is a desirable area in this is a less desirable area, and so you know Jewish and black families were often circumscribed by these lending lines that still have an ongoing lingering vestige today. If you look at housing segregation patterns certainly in the African. American community they are just as bad as they were in the nineteen sixties things like bike homeownership, which is at a low point especially because pandemic in or closures any fictions Is Worse than it was in the late nineteen sixties. So some of these things we were still wrestling with they seem twins dental, but they're not incidental at all. But again, it's this proximity you know that gives me hope and hope that even outside of crisis, we can expand and strengthen these relationships crises great reasons to get together but it's the more sustainable relationships happened over time outside of the crisis built on shared values and shared interests. So once again, this Jewish unity week has the potential to to be a real game changer. Well, so talk A. Little bit more about that. What do you hope is going to come out of this week if you believe that the basis of a better relationships and greater understanding comes from exposure than my hope is that we can use this week to focus on our rich history on our shared cultural values and to help understand things that we may not understand about each other but to be able to come together in a safe place and talk about those things, this has been tried in lots of different ways you know with lots of different impetus over the years. But in this country, as you know until you can make a sort of a holiday of it until hallmark starts to sell. It really difficult to have something that is stained and that you can go back to know every year. and. So that's the thing that excites me the most I know how excited I was to leave the south. And to meet people of different faiths including the Jewish faith and and get to know them get to count them among in my close friends. I would like that for everyone and so that when issues come up in our communities as we saw in Brooklyn I think earlier this year there was a really terrible assault in Brooklyn by a woman African American woman and if we had a built in long standing. Unbreakable trust between our communities. We can weather the storms we can come together and mutual condemnation, mutual understanding and mutual healing. It's not enough just to condemn something, but it's more important. I think to learn from it and make sure that it doesn't happen doesn't happen again and then five years hence, we can be sending each other black Jewish unity. We cards produced by hallmark absolutely creating whole new language in a around. It, it could be it could be urban slang and Yiddish expressions that. Unless you're in the know you don't you don't know. I'm hopeful hallmark if you're listening. Might be onto something big year. We'll see we'll see what's things we can pull their. I want to close by asking you for a few tips for our listeners actually the few months ago we had an amazing friend of AJC on the podcast named Eric. Ward. The Executive Director of the Western states center. We were talking about racism and I asked him what he thought as a professional opponent of racism and as a black man, what he thought American Jews should be doing to fight racism. His answer was pretty surprising to me actually because he said the best way for us to fight racism was to fight antisemitism since in his work he's bound that white supremacist racism is always based on a foundation of Antisemitism. So I I'm just interested in your reaction to that I, I think I'm citing him basically correctly I'm interested in your assessment of. That and second I want to give you a chance to answer the question from square one. Also, you know what would you like to see Clinton? What would you like to see American Jews doing proactively now to be effective allies in the fight against racism and I WANNA go back to Eric's point. Let me see if I can make this one I. I've only recently come to understand the difference between anti-racism. An anti-discrimination has a lawyer I've grown up understanding that if you want to fix racism, you have to attack it as a matter of non-discrimination don't discriminate against people in hiring don't discriminate against kids in school, and sometimes that anti-discrimination is in the form of color blindness. So whatever the remedy is, it can't be race specific right because the constitution doesn't allow such a thing but let's let's just come up with big broad sweeping solutions that african-americans might incidentally benefit from. You know by virtue of maybe being lower middle income people, we're going to come up with solutions that will work for everybody including African Americans. I've now come to understand that that's just not cutting. It goes great disparities that you talk about the at the beginning their persistent for a reason it's like trying to perform surgery with your eyes close, but you may be able to route around and feel where the patient is but your ability to be precise with a scalpel. And and fix the problem identified at problems impossible. If you don't open your eyes that has been the character of how we approach race in this country for decades. I've now come to understand and have really been encouraging others to join me in. This is becoming an anti-racist. It saying I may not have owned slaves I may have never committed an act of racism or discrimination. Even if that's true. You have to personally get involved to fix these problems. It's not enough to say, well, you know we have laws to address those issues. Laws had been very inexact and very unhelpful. In many ways you've got to get in there, roll up your sleeves and say, okay, is lack of capital in the black community a problem I need to figure out how to get more capital into black communities are educational disparities problem. Okay. I need to figure out how do we improve schools whether it's funding whether it's through pedagogy whatever we need to do, but we need to come up with solutions that actually help. Like people. And not just. Continue to perpetuate these gaps in Hustle meeting well in educational opportunities and health and civic engagement. That's my biggest message to the community, the An anti races. Just. As you know, we should all be fighting against anti-semitism. It's not enough to turn your back and say, well, you know they're not talking about, knee they are talking about you. And it's when we get to the point where those protests and in the halls of Congress where we're trying to make change we see people who look like you see people who would like me and seek people or Asian and and people who are all different walks of life saying we are here because we care and black lives matter and we've got to change the way this country works. I want to dive in and ask a million more questions and and talk so much more about where you just this conversation we are unfortunately out of time. So I hope that this will be an effective way to wet our listeners appetites for the week ahead, I should just add that in addition to his impressive titles at the National Urban. League clint wears another half. It's one of my favorite. Hats it's the hat organizational podcast host and Clinton is one of the hosts of for the movement the National Urban League podcast which people should check out and especially check out for this next episode where my colleague Dan Elbaum will be a guest on the show. We will link to the podcast in our show notes, Clinton let me just say once more. Thank you so much for joining us this week. She said thank you for letting me be here.
Dont Mess Up Your Recovery
"Hello Mike Brands Welcome to episode Number One, Hundred Twenty six of the addiction unlimited podcast. I'm your coach, Angela Pugh. Thank you for hanging out with me today listening to the pod today. We're GONNA talk about some of the most common ways I see people when they are trying to stop drinking and just can't get it to stick right. Some of the most common ways we screw up or sobriety, and one thing I want to be clear on with this many of these are not struggles specific to addiction, right? These are struggles specific to being human. But we focus on recovery. So I'm going to make it fit with that but this is not a thing that we have and nobody else has it right? These are all things that everybody struggles with in every area of life. Some of our greatest obstacles in this journey are just human nature. We're all super committed to the big change we want to make in the beginning it's easy to be committed in the beginning you feel good your motivation is high on top of your game. The hard part is staying committed for the long game. In this is something that ninety eight percent of the population struggles with. I. Just made up that number by the way I don't know. I would say might be more than that. But so does it yourself up about it like there's something wrong with you there's nothing wrong with you. It takes practice to learn how to do things differently than you've done them for your whole life or for many years. These habits and mistakes will also pop up in different parts of Your Life at different times for me. I've made huge strides in being committed when I want to achieve something and that doesn't mean that I'm easily committed in every area of my life. Okay. I'm fantastic with commitment and dedication to my sobriety, and I'm pretty good at it with entrepreneurship because I'm a workaholic and my work is so much fun. So that's kind of easy for me. But I really struggle when it comes to other things. Time management isolation food sugar. I still fall into the trap of binge-watching, a new TV show when I should be recording a podcast or creating social media graphics or returning phone calls, and then I get way behind on things and I don't feel good about it and start beating myself up about it and Yada Yada Yada. We're not perfect creatures that will do things perfectly and make the right decision one hundred percent of the time and never make mistakes and never hurt each other's feelings and always do the right thing. Forget that thought. It's not about trying to do everything right all the time. It's about consistently learning from the decisions and actions that don't work and consistently making an effort to do the things that are good for you and make you a happier person. And you have to do it like a million times to get good at it. I get the feeling sometimes that we have this misconception that if we do things a few times, we should be finished like I went to a five or six times so I should be cured. or I worked out for two weeks. So I should totally be in shape. I ate healthy four meals. So I should have lost that ten pounds. I put in five job application so I should have a job by now. We are hard wired for instant gratification in that definitely makes things a bit more challenging, but it won't you to start thinking about it as a long game instead of a short game think about it like the actions you take today may not give you instant results. But you know by doing the right things over and over again, you're building your future in creating long-term relief in results. So, let's dig in to this list I. Put together. Number One. You've heard me say two million times. Being noncommittal meaning, you are not making an actual commitment to stop drinking. Many of us want to stop drinking for a little while. We make deals with ourselves that will stop for thirty days or sixty days or ninety days, and then you're shocked when you start drinking again and it goes terribly The truth is you wouldn't be stopping drinking if you were able to drink in moderation, right? None of us would do that if we could control it, we would. and. The unfortunate part of this lack of commitment is that it puts you in a position of having to constantly. All Day long every single day of your life you're having to decide over and over again whether or not you're going to drink. and honestly it's exhausting. Nothing will wear you down faster than being in a nonstop argument with the committee about drinking or not drinking.

An Instagram account is exposing influencer inequality
"The. Hey. Inequality exists influences to from one instagram account is exposing it from American public media. This is marketplace tech. I'm Jack Stewart Info Molly would. How much you paid, it's always an awkward conversation to have but Edessa Ajayi is asking. Just that of social media influences they can have followings of tens or hundreds of thousands and companies will pay them for promotions, but a giant you started the instagram account influence a pay gap to highlight the fact that black influences routinely paid less than white influences, and that's even when they have similar numbers of followers or the same reach, the account lets people share stories anonymously and learn from other people's experiences about what is a fair payment for particular job or endorsements. JI- whose day job is managing influences at the talent agency AGM, so she's been collecting hundreds of stories. So, one of the most interesting ones actually was a campaign and influence of was participating in. This was a why influence. And she was approached lost minute. By a beauty brand with the expectation that she was going to replace a celebrity, so she was five K to be paid for that campaign. She turned up, but realized that the celebrity that apparently wasn't going to turn up. Actually did turn up, so there was no need for her. To be, and she was still paid that five k whereas a black. Who actually participated in the campaign with paid around one thousand, seven hundred, and it had nothing to do influence and following. It's one thing in a job where people get paid a salary, and you can be fairly transparent about it or at least four that transparency, but with influences where this kind of just not that overall body. There's not a union. There's really no way as there to dig in and figure out what these differences are really lets you hide things quite easily. One hundred percent especially as there are different parties involved you have the brands, but you have. Agencies and agencies are often given big budgets from brands or depending on the budget. Will be given the budget from abroad, and there's no level of transparency whereby you know if A. Brian gives an agency around ten K.. WHO's to save agency doesn't Call Five K for themselves and intentionally level influences. I think there were so many things at play here. There's so many people involved in different ways and each industry, each niche you know there are different behaviors that a lot more common within certain niches Bill for message. To Do? You work at a talent agency. Is there anything you can think of? The would help fix this problem? Is there a way to structure pay as their away for influences to work together a former union beyond what you're doing with? The implants pay gap instagram page I'm working hand in hand with a union that has actually been set up there working towards. Towards a opportunities for advocacy when it comes to influences in space and craters in general where people feel okay to discuss the ways in which they have been treated I think reinvigorating influences in the sense that where they feel a lot more confident and a lot more Hud you in the in the grand scheme of things is really important to me. Have you heard anything from brands either talking to you personally or speaking out publicly about the inequality issue? Yes, there are some black influences especially who kind of feel away about some of the Post that have been made by certain brands especially grinds that have a habit of picking and choosing what they like from black culture, completely ostracizing black influences from their campaigns and I think there is constantly right now. Accommodation around seeing black influences black creators as a worthy of a level of respect. You know it shouldn't be anything some shallow. Shallow because you're scared of any repercussions, what you hope changes as a result of this page and the work that you're doing I would really not for it to create a space whereby people feel like they can be on us and NATO behind and not only hard that that based upon the feedback brands will take steps to do what they should do so that's one thing I would also say just. The sense of community has been amazing, and just seeing influences help one another. I think you know sometimes they can be. An influence of with a million can feel so far fetched to maybe influence PUGH has five Cape on the page it. Brings people together an and gives them an understanding of what? Different spaces like and and the things that other people go through, and so I think from the page on that find. UGH, lovell, a kind of close knit way of people advocating for one enough it also required people to use that privilege and also use that insight to help one another, and I, and I think that is what has been really really amazing about the page and I think it will only continue to. Get even. In in that sense. Edessa Ajayi runs the instagram account. Influence a pay gap. She says there is actually a union in the UK now, and she's working with it to try and promote more

"I really liked that that's that's a really good point. I remember, had gosh, maybe five or six years ago I purchased a house, and just after I purchased it, there is a really bad flood, and my house was completely flooded, and so when the restoration people came to had. Had a thermal camera and I'd never seen one of those before I. Mean of course I've always seen in movies when they had like night vision. And as you can see the different light, spectrum or heat spectrum so when they use this camera what they did was they just aimed at against the wall and started taking pictures, which I thought was so odd, but then when they showed me what the image look like you could see the heat that was actually in the wall. So if there's no heat, then that was. was where the water damage was, but what was really cool Hillis was they had me put my hand against the wall, and just simply put touch it and remove my hand. And then they took a picture of where my handprint was, and there actually was a handprint. You could see the different elements of the heat that was still on the wall in the form of Miami. Blew my mind. And now it was awesome. Was We went back probably about five minutes later, and they took another picture of where my hand was, and you could still see the handprint there, so that's what's so interesting, because we just don't realize how much energy is around us in other words how much our body produces and so you have the energy I. Guess in front of US behind us. We leave all this energy imprints, and so from physics standpoint. It always blows my mind because we can't see things. Yes Andy No just wanted to see a quick ended up with with your audience so when I was really coming into my intuitive nece and the energy. What did I do you know used to live in? New York up until September of last year. And even when I lived in Chicago you know the to the biggest cities. And when I would go on public transportation, I would always be mindful of where I was sit on the train, because if I got a hot seat I would never want to sit in the hot seat, because someone else's energy and I never wanted to sit in someone else's energy. But not too weird or anything, but that's why it's also important to be careful. Who touches you and who does not touch you because there is an energy transference as well. He ought to really be careful about that. Yes one of the other things you really talk about is gratitude. Tell us how gratitude is connected with.

"pugh" Discussed on So it's a show?: keeping up with the Gilmore Girls
"I am a stunning pink. May I admire you again today? Hello really though you do have a great sense of passion. Sadly the podcast world will never know it. That's true that's true. I create my best outfits for recordings. Now I'm relatives that's must be kind of silly. Maybe not the best use of your energy but I enjoy them all the same. Thank you well. Should we talk about what we're going to talk about today? I think so if people didn't get our impressions we're talking pretty in pink today Eighties Classic yes. It is and we can't discuss it alone. No why would we if we could discuss it with other fans yes. The more gilmore girls fans the mirror exactly so should we introduce our special guest. Yeah today we are welcoming our special guest Lindsey pugh. We found her because she is a thorough reviewer of Gilmore girls episode on her website women in revolt. You WanNa tell us a little bit about yourself Lindsey in anything else you might WANNA plug. Yes sure So my name is Lindsay Pew. I have a blog called woman in revolt where I write about film and TV with a female non binary perspective so I try to focus on creators. Who Fall into that category. And that's that's about it. That's really what I've got going on. I do have like a normal fulltime job so I don't update it as much as as I would hope but I try to put something up there at least once a week while we feel you on that were will were full timers but we you gotTa have your passion on the side. I think keeps you going? It's true otherwise you would go. Crazy will endure. Well into I think season five of girls in your recap am I think I stated may be written in the stars unlike still in the beginning? You've never watched the show before I've I've watched it a set amount of. Yeah so tell us a little about your relationship to Gilmore girls. How'd you find it? What's your experience with it? A you said a crazy amount of times. He watched it. I think we can relate to that I think so. I didn't actually watch it for the first three seasons when it was live. But my mom and I came into it maybe when it was on its fourth or fifth season through the ABC family or whatever it was at the time syndication and we just became obsessed with it. We caught up with the first couple of seasons and started watching it live. I think we one time had the whole DVD's set And then when I graduated from college I moved to New York City. I miss my mom a lot and so I would just watch it like on. Repeat over and over again it was almost like a self soothing just comforting thing to have on in the background yeah yet to me. It's like a comfort. I mean it's entertaining but it also feels very comforting and I just think I was reading somebody else saying that about Gilmore. Girls just feels like oh no. I was watching things like Jimmy Fallon and he had some some characters on when they did the revival and he was like it just feels like a comfort like comfort food but comfort TV. Yeah Oh totally. It's probably the show that fits most into that category for me Yep I understand completely same page while we're not going to far back from where you are right now. In season five worth the beginning of season four four six and a fair to remember Taylor do have an IMDB plot. Summary. Yes if you want a more thorough full summary of the episode you can check it out on Lindsey's website for our purposes today. I'm just GonNa read the quick couple sentences on. I'm dv this episode aired on October Twenty Eighth. Two thousand three and the plot summary is worries remains. Have her on edge so she tries to find the perfect place to study? Meanwhile Emily Higher Sufi Decatur Richard's Office party only to find out. Jason has other ideas content on sadly. This does not include the plot. Line that we really need to discuss today. Because Kirk is going on a date. Yes Kirk the best. But he finds a love interest straight. After all those years I I liked blue for him. Third kind of a cute couple Well I think one time in the what is it. The ticket a-tasket upset. He casually mentions that he has twelve brothers and sisters that sadly we never get to meet and in this episode he mentions that Lou dated one of them one of his brothers before she dated him. So I kind of just feel like kirks finally getting a little attention after being ignored after twelve brothers and sisters all those siblings. He continues living with his mom. I guess maybe spread their wings. A little good one would hope it's a lot. Yeah and before we forget. Let's play that clip for our listeners. At Home Luke. Keys per quarter. You wouldn't need your help. I'm filling the coffee here behind me. What am I looking are still there? Lulu is Lou still there. You mean your date yes Louis Day. Twelve catch up man. She's still there. Sure some sure enough getting from behind my counter. I don't know what to do. What are you talking about. I just looked over there and everything seemed fine. Exactly everything seem so. Doesn't it seem weird to you? Know really yes a little bit. So why question? Go back over there. I can't I don't understand what's happening. I mean she was looking at me directly at me at first. I thought I had something on my lip and I brushed and brushed nothing. She was just looking at me mouth. That's good and I am prepared. Several small talk subjects to the evening and I haven't used one of them. You're making too much of this is not how it's supposed to go. I'm supposed to take her out. We're supposed to exhaust my prepared subjects immediately and then the minute I get up and go to the bathroom. She is supposed to sneak out and leave me here humiliated now. I've been to the bathroom three times. I have to tell. I did not have to go in every time I came back to the table. She was there and she was smiling. Did you see her touch my arm. But the hell was that all about that means she likes you so you take that back. I am not gonNA fight with you over you not believing that this girl likes you because to be honest with you. I'm a little fuzzy on the lie myself but bottom line is she does she does. She's laughing and smiling. And buckle up cowboy because I think he might actually touch you again in fact. There's a frightening chance she might so my advice to you is to go back over there and continue doing what you've been doing. I was doing Jon. Cryer from pretty in pink compression duckie yes duckie. Were you near the end of the movie? You know just getting the trial. Tenderness plenty of ammo less back over there. You think she likes me. I think she likes you. Think she likes me. So Lindsey when you were watching this episode and they mentioned Duckie from pretty in pink. Did you know what they're talking about? I did I. I saw pretty in pink probably the first time in. I would guess high school but I don't have a clear memory of it but I definitely remember the duckie trial. A little tenderness Otis Redding record store dance K. Taylor yes. I watched pretty in pink for the first time in high school. So I'm sure I would have seen it before watching this episode because I watched Gilmore Girls for the first time in college so I have to say I feel like in general. I know what's going on here but after spending a little more time thinking about it. I've come to appreciate this reference more than when I first thought Alka how about you Carla. Yeah the oddball out. I had not seen. I did not watch really any eighties movies before like college so I had not seen this and actually I thought I hadn't seen it at all because I know that I watched sixteen candles not too long ago and then when I started watching pretty in pink I realize Oh yes I did watch this because Taylor you put it American nationlists and I just forgot to check it off but I was getting the panamax. 'cause Molly Ringwald is in both but then right away I was like. Oh this one. I know this movie Pity south but still I watch it for the first time within the past year. I think so. Should we talk a little bit about the movie I I? I'll just give a quick overview of this movie came out. In nineteen eighty six stars eighties superstars like Molly Ringwald. Jon cryer injure McCarthy James Spader Harry Dean Stanton in any pats it was written by John. Hughes who's also written films like Breakfast Club inferior steelers off and it was directed by Howard h and you also fun fact might WanNa know that Kenny Ortega choreographed the try a little tenderness dancing you might know from other movies like high school musical cool at another. Yes he also did. Some choreography dirty dancing. He's been around for a long time and he's done some Gilmore episodes to the dance marathon lawn and I can't remember what else couple. Yeah you know what that would have been the more relevant thing mention but then high school musical but for some reason. I just didn't even think to say that honestly high school musical. Maybe his pieces Thursdays Don. I don't I don't know for Kenny. Ortega his true masterpiece you can really see him work as an autour out there in the whole piece. That's what I hear. Well Lindsey I WANNA ask you. Why would we asked to you know if you wanted to come record with us? You kind of gave us a list of a few movies than Pop Culture. References that you love to talk about. Why Pretty in pink well? I think it's interesting in the context of of Gilmore because one of my big pet peeves with the writers as they will sometimes make luke like this dude who can really go deep with Laura lie and like make references to two movies and books and other things and then sometimes they decide. He's like bumbling kind of uncultured person who hasn't seen like Casablanca. So it's it's interesting to have him totally understand an and make a reference to this movie. Just doesn't seem like something he would have seen. You both think. Yeah I guess I think maybe the way that he would have seen it is. He did grow up with the sister in the eighties. Oh that is true. Slowly on and he got caught in the living room or wherever just got really sucked in. I could see that well. It's funny you mentioned that because I was actually going to bring that up because I saw that in your review of the episode and I. I think that's totally legit explanation. And like I totally believe it but then also it is funny the very last episode before this one is one where Laura lie has him over for a movie night and he's like I haven't seen any. Yeah I wonder if that's too like a level of what's important in his life and movies not important so we haven't seen it but I agree that sometimes it can be like you kind of know movies sometimes Luke and other times. You don't so one. Sometimes I think he likes to be contributed. And he's like I haven't seen anything you just pick something like. I don't want to discuss this anymore. So is the true. Maybe he has a secret knowledge. And he just doesn't care to engage with Laura Liar. Whoever I mean look at who is nephews returns to be you know I don't really read. And then rory here's some notes that's exactly right that's funny so the movie I guess we kind of go into like plot. Explain what happens. You WANNA kick us off. Yeah sure so molly ringwald plays Andy. She's kind of like a girl from the wrong side of the railroad tracks which we can see from the the opening scene and she is you know just sort of an outsider in high school. She has a friend of a friend is is duckie. Who is kind of this stage? Five clinger dude no boundaries in his obsessed and she starts to engage in this romance with a wealthy guy at her school and there's a lot of class dynamics to it how she sees herself and how he sees her and Just kind of the the romance Kind of coming together through through the movie I guess just about and Ian and Ian or dudes her flock dudes yeah she does have a flock of dudes. It's funny 'cause deputies one of them so dadge yeah and I feel like you really get to see molly. Ringwald is Andy. You get to see her learn about herself. Learn about love and become more confident but then I mean still of course have her moments. It's high school. Who knows what they're doing then so I really liked the movie. I'M A fan. I do like that like Andy. Does seem like a more realized character. She does have interesting combination of really confident in one moment really unsure of herself in another feels true to the teenage experience well and there are romantic dudes for her consideration but I also love the relationship. She has with her dad. And this movie played by Harry Dean Stanton and she is kind of more an adult than he is kind of in some ways like rory is more of an adult than Laura is. He's out of work and she's really the one kind of running the house and making sure that he goes to try and find work because they're mom her mom. His wife left a few years ago. Yeah yes he gets. His transformation to puts are far away at the end of the movie and an attempt to move on which is sad but good really loved him in that role. He was my favourite male character in the movie While and I think we have to discuss too Because the debate still today duck year Blaine Rich. I best friend which is the better fit for Andy. What.
