Kathie Lee Gifford Is an Unapologetic Woman of Faith

"Kathy, you are one of those people I told you this before. You make me happy. I start cracking stupid jokes because that's the way I think it is. Well you better. But that's the wavelength Iran that you're funny. You can do shtick. You can sing. And then you write books. And so the reason you're in the studio today is not to sing, although perhaps you will. I might break into ladies and gentlemen. Pray that I don't. What do you say? She ain't what she used to be. But you have a book out. So that's ostensibly why you're here. But I've known you for quite a long time. Yes. And you are a woman of faith, and the thing that I say to people, and I've said this for years, I don't know if I've said this to you publicly, but what I've always felt we needed in the culture and I've always wanted to try to be one of those people. Is a public figure who is openly Christian. And whenever I talk about that, I immediately go to you because I think who has been out there over the years who has just been leading her life as a public figure, not as a Christian figure, but who is nonetheless openly Christian. And I really think that that's kind of the missing piece in the culture because we've divided. We've got the Christian faith over here, and then we've got the rest of the world here. And anybody with common sense knows that's nonsense. Right. But very few people are willing to live that out. You're one of them. In fact, you might be two or three of them. And I want to say thank you. Sweetie. You know, I've always had a boldness about my faith. I've always had an awareness, even a 12 year old girl when I first asked Jesus to be in my heart that the answer right away. Yeah. To who much is given much is required. Once I started learning scripture, but I was sitting in a little movie theater in Annapolis, Maryland, and God already knew that I wanted to be an actress and a singer and a writer. He knew that I came out of the womb with a rim shot in a prep fall. You know, I mean, people do. And there's a reason for it. God, what everything I am and everything you are, was woven in our mother's wombs into us. Are you saying that our parents were drinking? Is that the issue? No. Something went wrong. Something. No. That's the stick

Doug Giles Tells Us About His Latest Book 'Psalms of War'

"Back. I'm talking to none other than Doug Giles, GI Ellie S he has a new book out called sums of war. There it is, psalms of war with a picture of David in a sling, and who created that picture, Doug Giles. Yeah, man, I did. And a great pilot for an incredible carrier. I won't mention their names. Because they're in the throes of some legal battles over a forced jab. But anywho, he bought the original painting of king David. This is all young whippersnapper David as a teenager, queueing up to put a big hole in Goliath's forehead as a teenager Eric doing what men should do, but all the men are scared. Yeah. They're lining the rim of the valley of ela and they're afraid to confront Goliath because they see a monster that's too big to kill. And David saw a guy who's too big to miss. So, yeah, I painted that. And throughout the book, I've got 30 different paintings. And I've done some incredible stuff on the biblical bad boys of the scripture that a lot of people when they think, man, when they think about Jesus or the apostles or the prophets, they think that they're just bearded ladies. And these guys were rough cussing fishermen that were hardy that they would stare down monsters had stare down pharaoh. And they took all kinds of persecutions and beatings. And I tried to through my art depict them as dudes instead of these pale skin little indoor boys who drink. And or boys I've never heard that before. That is

"Expects punishing. It's the spanish inquisition. It's a speed around ten questions that everybody gets number one. Your current career. All of them are cancelled. What job do you do instead. I'm a photographer. i love taking pictures. i just bought my first like official canaan I've experimented some over the years by I think. I have not nice a number two. What's the most scared you've ever been a most scared i've ever been was probably God that's tough question. I would say When i was in college i had a medical issue that could have prevented me from ever playing again and had to get a lot of procedures done with through. Just it was. It was a it was a nightmare of an experience for a nineteen year. Old girl And i thought i was not going to be able to play basketball so that was probably i was fearful all the procedures that the game was that have been taken away from me number three in the world at one thing for one day. What is it staying in world at one thing for one day. I want to be the best chefs in my bake a food that people never forget. Oh awesome. I've never gotten that one a number four. What current celebrity from music politics. Tv sports would you most like to be your best friend. Beyond saying i just wanna know what perfection feels like. I'll never get there just being a sense or two it just want to be close to someone. Imperfect number five. What's your biggest most. Meaningless pet peeve biggest those meals pet peeve is when people touch me. i just don't want people. Sometimes come up to you with their hand on their hand on your shoulder or you know like touchy with some weird way. I mean you know high fives fists pumps all that. Kind of stuff hugs. I love that. But would you unexpectedly. Just walk up on me for your hanami. Me like might be in trouble number six. What's the most embarrassed you've ever been god So the most embarrassed. I've ever been was. I played in a tournament. When i was sixteen and i was still terrible at basketball. And my team was playing in this game. Want we could go to nationals. Which was a big deal. Because that's where you get. Seen by all the college coaches and in the waning moments of that game it was a tie ballgame. And i was going. Were rebound and i accidentally put the ball into the basket now. And it was heartbreaking. Like i in my team had been together since they were like five years old. I was the new addition to the teams and then looking at me like we want her gone now. It was tough brutal number seven. What's the thing about yourself. You'd most like to improve prioritizing. I don't do a good job of prioritizing. I mean my time is divided ways that at the end of the day. I can't even tell you how we got here so You know. I would like to spend more time with more of the people doing more of the things that are most important to me and that even is just even your time. That's what you think about. It's you talk about is when you do. I just wish. I could push more of those things towards the things that toward what means to me. Yeah i find. It's really hard because work is very easy to schedule. Because they come looking for you. And there's always something that needs to be done. And this sort of vagaries of family or friends or social life They're easier to move around because of that. They ended up just getting deleted entirely sometimes on certain days That's why i have to schedule like giant parties and massive events. Because then it's like i forced myself to like clear out that whole day to do something fun or to like. I'm not good at relaxing. It's either like go hard over here or like a hard over there relaxing as the thing that gets immediately deleted from schedule. Number eight any musician or band alive or dead can play at your next party. Who is it jay z. I've been obsessed with demand. Since i was fourteen years old called radio station just to say hi to him stopped him after the concert. After ice my favorite love it number nine. What would you consider your biggest failure. Failure was that. I did not take my basketball career more seriously as i mentioned earlier on the podcast You know i was just buried into. I've always been interested in a number of things. And i just feel like i was never fully committed to being the best player that i could have been. Sh so yeah. There's definitely some regret there. Because as you know by job in the seed i sit in Would be easier. If i had gone the extra mile it may be gone to the. Wb or play the next level even onto the tournament would have been nice I didn't do any of those things player. And so i wish i had been more serious about basketball less serious about my social life in college. Yeah and finally. What three individual words would you most hoped that people would use to describe you. I would say inspirational Intentional and insistent. I like those final bonus question. Who should i have on this. Podcast doesn't have to be from. Sports can be anyone in the world that i would find interesting. Had had natasha. I have not latasha out to have all right. That's the thank goodness. China is so great to get more. Also i am. I'm still fascinated by the sixteen kids and everybody got to actresses. I barely handle myself three dogs so a lot. You know it was a lot to juggle. No thank you so much for all that you do. Sarah the way you've jumped two feet in with with wnba has been a game changer So thank you for all your support and all she do just being who you are thank you. That's what she said. Oh yeah one more thing. This is a place for ranson raves. I'll complain also something's awesome. I'll tell you to.

"That doesn't get the marketing dollars. That's not getting the publicity that's not getting coverage like twitter is splayed space where you can go and say. Hey this is what's happening over at university. We've got a game here. Are things can connect with us this space because there's gonna be a billboard in there's not going to be a commercial there's going to be you know all of the marketing that you see with with major sports and so Twitter in particular has given women's basketball. Wnba place where you will feel like. You're not the only fan because you can feel like that. Sometimes because of the lack of its inches the sport gets well and i think also the gatekeepers are removed right predominantly white cisco. Men have been in charge of every sports page and every radio department and every television network and if those people aren't willing to see that the future is in women's sports and how much money can be made in how much can be built with it. They're going to keep no and so in these spaces that are democratized. You end up finding out what people wanna hear about. And they're what they're drawn to. And all the sudden you see this groundswell of people that are demanding more access more coverage more time and that venture moves those gatekeepers into action in ways. That are you know kind of not possible before all that really been really cool to save. You had an amazing twenty twenty one so far. You won the mel greenberg media award by the women's basketball coaches association. You ended up in tokyo covering the olympics. You've got this new podcast. Huge fan on serious Tell me quickly. Like one of the biggest takeaways from from getting to go to tokyo god One of the biggest takeaways of going to tokyo with that There's a silver lining to everything that we've been going through in our world for the last couple of years if you look for it right For me that silver lining was that i because there were no fans and no one was invited to the olympics. I was literally covering the biggest sporting event that in our world sitting front row. At everything. I mean i was in front of the beam. When simone biles morm- i was watching katie. the decky with no one in these arenas now yes as sad as that is. There's nothing we can do about. What's happening in our world with kobe. But for me it was a game. Changer i mean i. I just still can't even believe that. I that i got to go to tokyo but i got to watch the best athletes in the world. You know it was. It was really incredible in and we worked with a great crew. Nbc was awesome at ripon. Who was my co host day. Twitter tokyo was. Oh my god. He's he's the best human being ever But we also learned a lot. A lot of lessons to tokyo botching simone biles just so many things that are happening so that were happening at that time but i. I definitely just still pinch myself. When i think about the fact that i i got that opportunity. Let's talk about huge fan. My makeup artist around the horn listens to serious when we're getting ready. She picks like music channel and we always get ads for huge fan while we're getting ready And so. I was reading up on some of the episodes coming up and you've got quite an array of different celebrities talking about their favorite sports sports team. Monica drew carey. Bet nicole brown from one of my favorite shows all time community Mel c from the spice. Girl's death. Cab for cutie's ben gabbard michelle williams. I didn't even know she was the chicago. Bulls fan The one that. I freaked out about as adam durrance because i'm obsessed with counting crows and he's on to talk about his warriors Tell me about how this concept came up and this is your first full season right. Yeah my first full season. So last year we did eight episodes. I just got a random email. Sarah this was sedan god It was right after cohen. started in. Got this random email and someone at serious who was like. Hey your name kind of came by us. We're looking for a host shadow. This is what we're doing. And of course like you know the reading it to me. And i'm like first of all. What makes you think. I'm qualified to interview celebrities in men basketball analyst like what if their favorite sport football or hockey. Which we've had those right with qiuping about this podcast is. I'm have to be the expert. These celebrities are the experts era You know tim mcgraw. Does everything about lsu basketball like football. Excuse me. He knows everything. Snazzy coaches big moments crazy losses like. i don't have to be the expert. It is literally the funnest thing i've ever done because i just sit back and i can just be inquisitive about these teams. And how these celebrities families became apart other became a part of family tradition with their fandom and they are huge fans. Like michel blais has an ice rink in his basement for his connects is crazy. So i think the concept is brilliant. I can't take credit for it was serious Their team which is it's it's amazing. How many celebrities are like. I absolutely want to talk about my favorite team and It's been a lot of fun. Awesome very cool. We got to let you go but you do have to do the one thing that everybody does and nobody expects carter spanish inquisition. The spanish inquisition is part of espn nation. Brought to you by dr pepper. College football is back and so are. The fans returned to glory with fans bill by dr pepper. The one fans deserve expects punishing. It's the spanish inquisition. It's a speed around.

"Just. I'm just thankful in honor to be in the space and to have the opportunity that i have to give back to this game but it was just. We made a joint decision that we just felt like you know what was on. The table was to offer that we had to refuse. Yeah but then. New ownership comes in our girl. Ray montgomery's and charge well at least partly in charge and this season ends up being a return. Not just for you but The whole look of it was all black women on the call right. Yes what was that man First of all to get the call to come back to the dream was awesome right like it was a moment where i was like. Okay baby someone does understand how hard we worked over the years in how much this means to us and to me To get that call from rene I think probably came close to dropping tear. But it was very obvious early on that. Rene larry suzanne. We're going to do things differently for the right You know what happened with kelly leffler and there were a lot of changes made in those last few years of the team where the organization just did not reflect the culture of atlanta and that was an important aspect of what this new ownership group wanted to bring back like this team. This organization should look like the city. You should reflect the diversity of the wnba in the league. Right exactly Obviously they believe in women black women ownership. They wanna see black women broadcasters in all these different spaces not just on the court so You know to do it with with three young women that i've just watched grow throughout their career was also really just it. It was. it was a great moment. so yeah. I mean i think it is sent a message that prefers some changes here in That the value of black women will will be seen in all aspects. A what they're doing. Let's talk about around the rim this podcast and like first of all when you were doing all your gigs as a studio host as an analyst as a working for the dream was there part of you. That felt like oh. They're still something. i'm. I'm not having the time to talk about or things. I want to say that in office space for what. What inspired you to add. A women's basketball podcast. Yes so. I'm sitting in studio at nba tv with today. Grew mckay and we were covering this was was i believe with the still had broadcasting rights to some of the wbz playoff. So i started there in twenty ten as well working in studio as a primary analyst and so we were sitting in there one day we will show by first of all we cannot have felt like wnba had a younger audience that was somewhat captivated but couldn't connect to some of the coverage that we had the board so we needed some energy need some diversity but we also need a space to just have station like sarah. You know this we have the games in then what else. Ri- you're not waking up in the morning and people on your television talking about arcus thirty point game there. That's the biggest issue. It's a highlight. It's a championship win. It's passing a statistical landmark. It's not a lot of debate. It's not a lot of real history or depth to it which is one of the reasons that fans can't attached to it and then argue about it over beer and we want to do that and so you know i had this idea. Maybe we'll start on youtube. Let's figure it out. So i actually flew to new york to meet with origin chilly because i felt like espn w was my best opportunity to do. This was like let's leave. Espn w will back this winter with laura. Hey today an hour and a half this show we really think when fastball deed sent you know the the number of black women have covered our sport over the years especially when i got into. It was like depressing there. Just weren't you know black women covering majority black were so we thought we just had this unique angle in laurel site. Let me see if i can do and to her credit. You know she went back and you know pushed as much as she could and she came back with welcoming you show. But i'll give you black casts so today and i into foster brassy as you know. We all started together williams now. This is six. Wnba sees sarah wife so wild. So yeah i mean. I'm really proud of around the room. Because we have given fans a space to hear from their favorite players to have conversations with coaches. When something major happens women's basketball tried to to get on top of it and it's incredible to see over the last years we kind of we didn't start the wave. There was a podcast before us called. Shoot around with the debbie which which laid the foundation but now. There's nobody more spaces that you can go to to get that debate the discussion but gave us growing the coverage drawing But we just you know we still feel like there's so much work to do in one hundred percent. Gotta keep gotta keep pushing. I do think that there are some pretty great social media outlets and an accounts that are doing some of the best kind of work. It's not s- necessarily as deep but it's exactly the kind that catches the eye of of new viewers or gets people to really find an affinity toward a specific player or team. Learn the story on the stakes of what's happening and then wanna go watch because of that. I think that's a model. That espn w in espn needs to keep building on. Because that's such a big part of it and and you know there's that great fan project research. And i had angela jerrell on this podcast talking about it. The idea that there's this fluid fan and they're less likely to just simply attached to the teams in their own city as much as they are to be drawn to a specific player. Were background or story and have that be their entry way into really becoming more of a of a passionate viewer and feel that's like the entry for so many women sports And female athletes. And that's why those accounts that just kind of highlight who they are and when they're wearing acute fit and when they're going and doing something cool and making their life's look aspirational instead of just like role models like making them pherson. Cool is such a huge part of it. and again just the coverage being deeper and more interesting so that people can can really learn. Know about what they're watching. Wanna watch more we. I mean that's been a principal sports from the beginning. Understand what you're watching. You're much more compelled by even if it's nascar or for people who get into hockey you learn the rules and then you know what you're watching all the sudden it's so much more interesting to you. What is your present. And i always say that if it wasn't for social media like we see all the metrics right now we're when it's basketball is growing growing if i if it wasn't for social media i'll believe this would be happening because it was. It's been free marketing right even for your your local college team. That doesn't get the marketing dollars. That's not getting the publicity that's not getting coverage like twitter is splayed space where you can go and say..

A i need to meet her at least show her ryan. I i was very good at that networking i had. No experience in broadcast did note. I was doing.

And i was like. Oh my god if i could get. Espn holy smokes. The auctions going prices going up all right. I'm out of this. So suddenly they get a bid from a woman named mary mcelroy.

I said this has to be an act of god because there is no way here and this is to be what i'm supposed to do because this is just no one could have i mean is start at msg. I've still never been to msg for any reason. Isn't that ridiculous. what's i know. I know it's spain. I know it has to happen. I never got. I gotta make it out there so your first full season of being an analyst for espn and at the time box. Sports south was twenty ten When did you get in and start working with the atlanta dream. The dream eight so that actually happened a little earlier. I was and they started on radio so the first year. They didn't actually do a broadcast so it would have been radio. The two thousand nine. They started television in two thousand nine was when i had that maggie dixon classic December was the last month of nine with the spn but long story short. Yeah so zohreh. The dream Was just coming to atlanta. I was actually part of the group that brought the team to atlanta in a way know literally well. I'm an administrative assistant. So i'm setting up meetings and meeting people. I'm not making any decisions you know. I'm on the administration side. But george attacked was obviously involves stacey. Abrams kathy betty. It'll group of women who were branly orders for bringing the team so i was kind of a part of that makes i knew conversations for happening and as soon as they were like. We're having a team. I was at every event. Like i need to be on the broadcast. That happens. you know. I need to be a part of this. So yeah it was a two thousand eight at That that i'll start it and you ended up doing the first eleven straight seasons of atlanta dream hoops in existence as as a broadcaster analyst And then they had to make a switch and from what i read it was it was budgetary But what what was it like on your end to be a part of that team from the start and then to be to be. I don't know what the best word is. not fired. not laid off site So it was devastating. Bob and i are still good friends to this day. We just so -joyed calling those games together watching this team grow you know. We had kind of became an integral part of this. Women's basketball space in the city of atlanta is putting team. They had been to three wnba finals which was unheard of relief for a team. That was this young In i would say underestimated in a way like they. I mean there was no waiting whenever said. Oh atlanta's going to go to three finals now. People were pissed when he landed showed up at three files out. But you know. I just i just feel like what they offered bob knight to to stay with the dream at the time. And don't get me wrong. I mean. I miss humble pie as they get You know i understand that. I'm.

"And i mean when you have sixteen siblings. You're like that. Sounds like some stuff. I need to be learning about. Family dynamics getting up well no. I've always been intrigued by people in how they connected society. You know what shapes them what makes them. They are Just some of those things so it was more that i wanted to enjoy the classes. I was taking in undergrad. I say a lot on this podcast. If i went back i would take so. Many classes in steph like sociology human ecology like the study of people and how we communicate. behavioral psychology all. That stuff like that's the stuff i find so interesting. Now as you move through the world and meet all different kinds people and all that stuff Yeah so you you have this great connection with a bunch of your coaches growing up high school college Was there a part of you that ever thought. I want to stick around and be a coach absolutely not might spheres as a student. Athlete watching my coaches in what they had to put up with with me in my teammates in our parents in the boosters in the athletic department i mean those it was just too much. It was more time than i ever wanted to spend a lot more stress than i thought i could handle. I also really just felt like. I was not cut out for the heartbreak of recruiting like spending all of that time investing and i knew that was going to be a big part of what i would do or what the expectation would be and so i mean god just hearing no over and over again after you've invested so much time in these young people who just decide. Oh i'm gonna go to this school because they have better screens in the locker right. Like i'm not i'm not out at so i knew very early on that Yeah coaching coaching was not going to be my thing. What i don't understand is how super competitive people become coaches because you do have an impact on what happens but only to a certain extent. You can't actually be on the court. i can't do it. I if i want something done. I'm just doing it myself. I don't really trust. Very many people to get shit as well as i think i could get should dung all right. Follow the game plan. What do you do you. yes exactly. Yeah well and that's so much being successful coach setting people don't realize after working at georgia tech for seven years. I worked very closely with the head coach at the time michelle. Joseph and coaching is like ten percent. Coaching it's ninety percent. People management is staff parents fundraising. It's i mean you know all of those other. How do you motivate different people and yeah just mean is one of the hardest jobs. I just yeah. I was like i'm good. So yeah let's talk about that. You were at the ac administration offices for one season right after school. And then you end up at georgia tech like you said for seven years so You did a bunch of stuff administrative assistant of recruiting director baseball basketball operations special assistant to the head coach again. Was this just. I love basketball so much. Now that i want to be near it but i'm not really sure what i wanna do. That was exactly what it was sarah like. I had zero plan coming out of college. I had a small window where i could have gone overseas to go pro But i had an injury my senior year that they have to sit out after i graduated for the tire year And so. I was by the time i did that. I got shave and that was never one of those kids out. Shooting into the lights went out. Like i love basketball and You know again. I was competitive. But i wanted to get my nails done. I wanted to go to movies. I wanna do a lot of other things right But i wanted to stay close to the game. That was one thing i did though and i was so inspired by watching pat summitt. I remember one thing vividly in my mind. It was my senior year. I went to the final four in greensboro very close to winston salem and i watched It might have been regional. I watched pat summitt coach. And i was like just in all of the impact that she was having on these women and thinking about how. The game I wanna close the game. I don't know where. I got an internship at the acc office which was great. Because i got a taste of a championship operation so we ran all the majors or championships for the acc You know. I've got to visit all the different campuses in the league and see what their administrators do like okay. Maybe i'll be an athletic director. So that was kind of in the back of my mind when i went to georgia tech staying close to the game but eventually being an athletic director and that was not the plan after a while they ended up hiring you to do radio broadcasts. What was the impetus for that. Where you just chatting up a storm in the offices and they thought they'd redirected to something right. Gee somewhere well. I hit this. I hit this crisis but my twenty six years. Old okay typing. John mayer called it. Quarter life crisis. There you go. Yes that's where. I was Where i just spanked my really going to become an athletic director where i have to lights sitting in office and you know just it just did not not allergic shirts with like unto too young for this jetting. I need to be close to the game. So i this crisis. I'm going to do in my life And i randomly so part of my responsibilities at georgia tech or iran game operation. so even. i wasn't coaching. I had to be at every game. Make sure the ball kids were in order. Make sure boosters were taken care of marketing had their fliers all that stuff and one day they were life. Hey would you be interested in filling in on the radio broadcasts Sure because what's the game started. I didn't have a ton to do. I just had to make sure everything was ready for the game like sure. I'll sit in so you know i've got my khakis on georgia tech colo. When i'm bringing my point over there to mike okay. Sure what do you guys want me to do now like you know. Just just talk the game. So i put the headset on and it was life changing. Sarah i mean you know how it is when you finally figure out what it is you love to do It just clicked right away. I was like wow. This is did not feel i worked. I could wake up and do this every day. Select i'm not going to work. And that's basically what happened to a ever since that's awesome. So how long. After that did you get spotted by espn and were you on television broadcasts from that point or i mean radio but like the public broadcast from that point on where you always part of the georgia tech games. Well yes so. I was i was i loved radio like if i could go back now in by 'cause you have to wear with what you look like and all those things like radio is a great place to learn so i did that for a couple years while i was doing that. I was checking into opportunities to actually get on television. Like can i do this at the next level. All of a sudden My dreams were just growing But people were looking at me. Like i was crazy. They were like you are not broadcast or communications major. You have never been on television before you have zero experience..

"Up competitiveness and leadership and all the other stuff So despite saying that you weren't talented in that you were clumsy you still went to wake forest and you played for four years and you left the school third in school history with blocks and fifteen rebounds and all i think. Acc it fresh revered all that stuff so just talk about that experience at wake forest and I of the kids to go to college. Yeah yeah i of the kids of the sixteen siblings. Only two of us have graduated college by mother woods college. She was all about education so something that. She preached about but This whole college. Scholarship thing was new to our family. I mean i remember someone showing up ford official visit. We were totally unprepared. My mother was on that tonight because she's got a houseful kids. Where like it out there. They're pulling up. We're supposed to you know be entertaining some of you. Know one of the top coaches at the time in the acc But it was. It was interesting Wake forest was a place that i ended up for several reasons number one because i needed A small school you know. Four thousand undergrad. At the time maybe has grown a little bit. but that's a very saul power over. Four thousand undergrad. But i love. The individual attention from professors could play in the acc. But not really bad. Good so you. At the time. When i came in we read on bottomley. Acc so i do. I was going to get playing time. some of the other schools. That recruiting me. I was like okay. They're recruiting me to be the fourteen fifty player on the bench. I just wanna play. Because i knew that i had some time to make up. We're all these drills had been planned. They were like six or seven. What like i need to get on the court and see what might potential is But it will also has challenges. I would say Trying to integrate myself into a predominantly white school Being away from from home for the first time like many college students athletes are not have to face but it was incredible. Probably couldn't have made a better decision. As far as a place where i needed to be to work my way through some of those challenging dynamics i had a black woman as a head coach which was unheard of. I believe she was the first black head coach ever in in the acc for women's basketball. So that was important to my mom. And i but yeah. I mean it was the best four years of my life always so far and i had a great time. We'll get right back to the interview but i. What is your favorite word. My favorite word is intentional. You know it's been something that has been a a theme throughout my career in my life i used to be. I will say as a kid the one that always used to ride the wave right so whatever everyone else wants to do. I was in whatever was happening. Let's go for it. But i just found that adult that it worked out very well coming so i started to be more intentional about my brand. Why was the impact on wanted to have in the world. what. I stood for all of those things. So that's probably my favorite word. I i love that word. And i love that sentiment so good on you for understanding that the focus and intent that you needed to thrive and shine and then and then doing it so intentional done with intention designer purpose circa fifteen twenty s It's a great one. Speak great words you today. The word of the week is in honor of china's unique upbringing and many siblings. A new word to add to our vocabularies feel genitive circa eighteen seventeen meaning inclined to the production of offspring or fond of children. It's combination of feel meaning love or having affinity for and latin progenitor meaning bhagat or gotten so it can refer to the production of spring or loving of them and feel per genitive nece. The love of offspring instinctive of the young in general is from eighteen. Fifteen so both were first attested. In translations of johann spurs time. This was a german physician. Who is one of the chief. Proponents of the pseudoscience phonology. Which believed that. You could look at the bumps and shape of a cranium to decide someone's character and intelligence and stuff and for knowledge. Ists use this word feel per genitive to designate a specific bump or organ of the brain that they thought was the seat of apparent instinctual love for his or her children. It is a not off use word but it felt useful for us to learn so in a sentence la- china's fellow presentative father produce enough children to feel two basketball teams and they're competitive. Family gatherings helped make her hoops star. Now let's get back to the interview degree in sociology. What did you think you wanted to do. I mean you're not living unless you change your major lie. Tom so i came in saying i want to be a lawyer or slobs major History or something. Like that undergrad. You know find my way. And then i realized how much reading and writing i was going to have to do in like no fake snacks so then i decided i wanted to be a psychologist because i wanted to talk. People do their problems than commonly on my couch I've always been someone who who cares. So much about people what they're experiencing in life and i was like that'd be perfect and then that's the intro. Class almost failed more science than i could have ever imagined so i was like i'm out of here then. I literally sociology on sleep. Because i really did my homework on. The coursework and i took classes like social inequality loom sports sociology of sport Death and dying marriage and a family..

"Your dad was an independent newspaper owner and publisher despite not finishing high school. So you see him. Make himself an into an entrepreneur. And also get into the world of media. How much of an impact do you think that had or was it. Not till later in life when you sort of came around and made that connection. Yeah my dad. Lives a very complicated life Him owning a newspaper was god Without getting into a two hour. Long podcast It was his most legit job throughout his his life right And i was not really aware of it at the time. My mother talked about it. I have copies of the newspaper like my aunt worked at the newspaper. You know it was just a kind of like a family thing at the time. But i wasn't really aware of it as a kid. But i do believe that. My dad has such a gift of communication of wanting to disseminate information wanted to help people. He's just been You know kind of that person. He's that guy who would eighty one of the community has the issue up on. They call him. And so that's always been inspired me to see how people adore him. How they rely on him and i do think it has impacted the person i am the media side of it not so sure but again because he has just been Someone that people can rely on. Someone is a public figure in the community. Like like that part of it. I i definitely Tried to take on as i was coming up. Okay so i read that. You were a cheerleader. And that's where you thought you belonged. And then you get up to six feet four somewhere near there early on in high school and realized that you should check out basketball. Why wasn't that the expectation earlier in life. I mean i just that seems wild to me that at no point growing up would it feel like. Hey she's gonna be pretty tall and let's give this a shot well first of all. My mother didn't even realize i was tall and so she tried to give me like a champ down rest for my sister now. My sister Is five six six four and so she tried to give me one of her dresses that she wore when she was four years old issues. Like this is not fitting in. I don't understand what's happening It gone to her on her. Obviously after a while. When i started out my sister she was like holy smokes. You growing like a weed. But i did try basketball in the sixth grade. I just hated it. I was lying. L. this is not fun because my dad was kinda like that that community basketball hero like all the project championships. And you know he was. He was demand and so we would go to his games. I knew he played there. Were no female athletes on my mom's side. That wasn't even insane. My mother was like listen. If you're going to be sweating your hair out if people are going to be your be we will. We won't be there So but as i got older my older sister started to play. Actually two of my older sisters started to play basketball. Which was like okay. But i still wanted to hang out with my friends so i was a cheerleader. I was like i'm going with my girls. Are i wanna wear this short skirt. Aluminum attention And it wasn't until a guy. My community just kept coming around name. Is michael j. He was like telling my mom. She needs to play basketball. Play basketball and at this point. I was probably in the eighth grade. And he's so tall you know. And then he just mentioned to her that i could get a cost all shape and that was this. She pretty much dropped me off at practice back to give me. How quickly did you learn to love it after not liking it early on right away because i was in such a i was in a difficult stretch as a teenage girl where i was taller than everyone myself. Sustain was really low puberty. hit me way late so i was somewhat miserable. Couldn't figure out where in the world i fit in. I was like what am i supposed to be doing with this right. You go to basketball practice and finally like okay. So being tall has its advantages. Started making friends in no learning to communicate and all those things that teenage girls kinda start struggling with over time and so it just. I started to feel like there was a place for me in and to really grow in connect in a way that i could nowhere else. That's woodward started. And then i realized that i was just ultracompetitive. I wasn't talented at all. I don't think anyone ever say. I've been naturally talented. I'm very clumsy all the things that make for bad athletes. i feel like i have it but Yeah it it definitely started with opening the door of Friends in a safe space and then it was just that i. I am ultra competitive. I talked about that all the time. That i don't know if i hadn't been an athlete. I was an athlete from the beginning. Like as soon as i think my first word was ball. But if i hadn't done that how much tougher it would have been. And i was only six feet when i was twelve but that felt way too tall and awkward and puberty didn't hit me well and i was like if i didn't have this thing to feel good about of why i'm tall and strong athletic. If i didn't use that it would just felt like such burden. Instead it became the store..

"Thing my mother would absolutely demand that i say is that not all those children are hearse so they are all blood related rights. So they're either My mother children or by fathers children. The interesting fact is that. I had no siblings. That have say mom. And dad. As i know yeah And so with that being said my parents separated when i was very young so by time spent with siblings over the years was like summers with my dad's side and i lived with my mom in her kids. So she's got five including my dad has twelve children including me So yeah it was. It was a lot of fun You know we spent time together. I could name every single one of my siblings which i will do right now or tasks i always used to say it. I didn't have enough time to tell the story. I would need to get on oprah. But what i do with sarah spain right yes so it was an interesting dynamic growing for sure. There are joyful big families. There are big families that are complicated. And i would imagine with different mothers and fathers and figuring out schedules and who has whom when it could either be contentious or people could find a way to co parent and make it work for the most part growing up. Did it feel like there was good communication between all the parts or was it sticky at times. Oh it seems like it seemed like the communication was great. I mean there's a reason why my father has twelve kids. He is a smooth talker. He is a very organized guy. He is clearly very ambitious and he's a big family man so it was extremely important to him. My father wasn't only child that was always excused as widely. Need to have twelve kids but it actually went very well One thing. I can distinctly remember about. My dad is that he could remember a phone number off the top of his head and obviously he did a lot of calling checking in with various kids and kids of of lam's of kids But we would stop at the at the phone booth all the time right like that was back in the days where there were cellphones. He would check pager. We've go to phone booth. It would be one of my siblings and you know that's it so I it went very smoothly for us. So you grew up with your mom In alexandria. Virginia and her for other children was it. Were those four siblings from the same dad. Did you ever feel like you weren't as much a part of that as the ones who were all you know. Say mom and dad. Yes oh no. My mother is really needs to be on oprah so my mother was married four times and he has five kids. We have five kids were different. At's so we were all kind of living similar experiences right but it was. It was a lot of fun. You know my mother was a single mom during spurts of that time when she was married But we started out with four girls by little brother was born until i was seventeen years to get to go off to college. So that house was wild. you know finding bathroom time all the things you can imagine but No my mother was awesome is mine has been the backbone for my life for my entire life. So what number were you in that run. I was next oldest. So i had one older sister two younger sisters in my baby brother so that means that you had three different times where there was a new husband in the house. That was your father figure sort and then was gone right. How how was that for you. Because my dad was so active inconsistent in my life as my dad that to me was the most important thing for me growing up right like we talk about girl dad all girl data all the time but one thing i've noticed with some of my friends growing up. I really believe that the differences between kind of how my life went in some stretches in how their lives went in this remind observations but also bears had to do with my relationship with my dad right. My ability to communicate effectively in a male dominated field riot enrolled full of men in places in spaces where You know i. I was just so comfortable with that. That dynamic my dad also has eight boys so you know. I had eight brothers on his side of the family So that to me was was the biggest thing my mom kind of navigated her life about her way when it came to the male figures that my dad was just so president so consistent and so you know whatever else did was guilty. That's great though. Because i mean you hear these stories of people whose whose parents have are bringing different people in and that can be really challenging especially if those people aren't great people or if their relationship start solid Line you know. Yeah well. I think everyone that comes into your life. makes an impact on you right like marriages in those aren't good things happen you know. So there's there's obviously good and bad that comes it but You know. I just think that because my my mom and dad were so strong and so steady who they were their character like that like whether it was they were married to at the time or whatever situation may be happening in our lives. I just felt like we were. We were always in a pretty good spot academy sports and.

"So i feel you on this one. Because i to us to have acute notebook obsession and the evidence of that remains on my book shelves and in my drawers and stuffed in various places One solution that i had to cure the habit was to think big picture. Whatever i'm tempted to buy stuff. I don't really need to think about how the more of us choose to buy fewer things and be more selective about the stuff we spend on. The less stuff is made right supply and demand. It's very idealistic. Were so far gone when it comes to landfills in such that it probably makes no difference but when i am tempted i at least try filtering it through that thought process i am i adding to empty consumerism and wasteful manufacturing. And if i'm being honest. I do that with you. Know stuff like cheap. Halloween costumes and party favors but never abandoned being better. Because you can't be perfect right so think about that second. If it's about the good feeling that you get when you buy it and look at it and right on a page or two. Could you do that. And then when it's lost its novelty. Maybe make it part of a care package for a shelter that houses women and children or caused that gathers gifts for kids. That don't get christmas presents.

Christmas at rudolph's mariah carey dance best To christmas themed bar and wrigley bill and then new year's eve you guessed it was on a boat but when the boat had to cancel we pivoted to a tiki bar near the lake where we could still see the fireworks and we just pretended you know where those people who fly to bali to be the first to get to ring in the new year and it worked. It was so much fun. We had a different costume for every holiday. They had all fit in one backpack and we had to go place to place. Do quick changes. And i have to say sorry twenty twenty. You didn't steal our good times. You didn't steal her magic. Our friendship gratitude being alive and healthy and altogether celebrating And it wasn't lost on me that it was all on saturday.

"Another team. That is absolutely killing it. This offseason is the atlanta hawks. John collins is back on a five year. One hundred twenty five million dollar deal. I'm sure some people are willing to pan this. I think it's fine John collins a really good player you saw how valuable was is. The playoffs went on last year or not last year. But in this past postseason. Like i know the numbers dipped but i still think he provides a lot for them flexibility. Wise this floorspace and continues to be for real. He has some some room to groza. Passer i'm not sure how that's going to look. I hope that. I mean. That's obviously i think that's the the hope for john. Collins was next year is that he really takes a leap as a decision maker. Because that is the big struggle for him right now. I do think that he provides a lot defensively as a weakside rim-protector he can get out to the perimeter. A little bit like it's better than asking clint to close out on the corner. If you have john carlos going on the corner but point being like you just have so much versatility throughout that rosser. Losing john collins hurts a lot more than keeping him. And i also don't think that this is a negative contract. It's a lot of money. But john collins very good player. Who's going to get

Performance Coach Daniel Back on Advancing Methods in Jump Training for Athletes

"For young athletes who are wanting to jump to get sports like volleyball right. That's jumped base. But what do you think about the me. This is off the rails bit about the plan questions but something like that for young athletes like. There's obviously the training right but like something like lower dogs or a sport the way you make it a sport. What are your thoughts on that. I love it. And i do think there is a superiority. There compared to yet destroying touch the ram touched the backboard one. Just because it's more fun to to have success in the training right but then also there's this this component of it's not like a workout right. Where it's i've i've had this run. Training athletes honored kind of look at everything they're doing. I think they should get some junk reps in in going up hitting the vertex is just not as fun as dunking. you know. it's not. And i think just having that bond even that kind of creative like ideas based like oh this or i'm gonna i'm gonna try to don't one leg or whatever like having that kind of fun created environment. Deathly makes a difference for yet. Just motor learning side of things in the motivation side of things. Like yeah definitely like in the one on one training transacts like view just talent someone to go hit the vertex. Let's like let's say ten foot for ten times you know just not. This is not as good so. Yeah i definitely love the low rim dunking approach. Yeah even four people not small players. Yes i agree i. I was watching my some neighbor kids in the backyard. They have an adjustable hoop and they put it down like you know. These kids are like ten and eleven. They put it down to like. I don't know five six feet and they're trying to dump it out just thinking to myself. This is where it all starts. Non-judgmental it's and i think about the non-judgmental too. I mean i. I beat myself up. Training for years in the sense like l. ahead was the rim it's like am i getting higher on the rim. Am i not a good day. Was this a bad day. Even back when i was sixteen or seventeen and able to start dunking and things. That would be like you walk in the gym jimmy. You're not feeling it's like. Aw man but if you can have a rim and it's eight and you can just try to do something new or something. Then it's fun again. And it's i think for developmental as makes so much sense

That katie played for them. They won two titles. He was the finals. Mvp in both championships and had amazing performances. Now they could've probably pulled off a three peat if if it wasn't for durant's that that obviously achilles pop it on him against the raptors final season. Now steve kerr also play. Played with michael jordan won two titles with mj with the bulls so his perspective on this obviously is something that is interesting because he played with jordan but coach durant and listen to what he said nbc bay area about kevin durant and his comparison to jordan is the most talented basketball player on earth If not of all time. Honestly he's just so gifted played with michael jordan. And and and i know i think he's more gifted i really do. I mean it saying something but kevin is a different entirely different breed.

"Hello rim show. Hello karen today we are doing great. How are you. I'm doing really well and very excited. That spring has sprung around here. And i'm very excited to be talking with you about the ink project. We are so credit to to be here so thank you you're welcome. Let's start with what the project is. I saw on your website that you describe it as a global writers liaison. So why did you choose that word. Specifically the idea. The liaison for us we just visualized kind of the gap that we were seeing in our day to day society and we can get into more of that a little bit later but this idea of a liaison to be this intermediary body between two parties and for us those two parties are underrepresented voices narratives and publishing companies specifically oriented towards you know performance spaces and performance oriented writing. The idea liaison was really important to us. When we were coming up with our mission. You know we're not a theater. Were not just a writers organization but like being liaison between those faces. It was really really important to us. I think the idea also is important because kind of like karen is saying if we remove the label from being a theater company free removed. The label from being writing service opens the door possibility for what we as on in actually do in our society in our community and our whole outlook to have global outreach. How can we be that intermediary space on a global level.

"They're going to be doing that more. So on this season in any other living underground bunker no windows can be good. It's going to be good. I was hoping the common areas of the house would be less cool. I was I was hoping it would all be like it'd be a prison but it's the I also really like a golden eye level. You know facility or something like that. Yeah a regarding a couple things that happened on the first episode. If you haven't seen it skip ahead a little bit. The two biggest things aside from being overall good episode the Big Twist Ending Wherein TJ revealed that to win the season. You have to win an elimination essentially which. I'm kind of surprised they haven't done that. I love it. Love it because you're going to see you have to see. We've went years without seeing some of our favorite people get into a one on one head to head athletic competition with someone else and now. Who's an old veteran bananas? Even you're going to see them go head to head and they're going to have to want to go in in win instead. Coast everyone trying to coast the that was pretty much. The Game Plan for years was tried to stay out of elimination. But now you have to go in it will. It's almost you know. At some point. People are going to get lopped off. Maybe a couple through as the and correct me if I'm wrong there ways. That don't include. The elimination sometimes have competition. Where like finish last year the challenges. Yeah so you. I don't like how the first couple of episodes of every season early rookies consul being thrown in. Because I'm not attached to these people and it's just like you. We go again type of thing. But now it's going to be like you know the go and ask making. Yeah you have to go in going to be people volunteering to go in so I will be very interesting. What do you think about the bananas and West Alliance? Were you surprised by it? And do you think it's legit? I think it's very legit. And here's why I don't think they're rivalry the past few years has been. It's not a real rivalry. They went to Maury okay. That was a satire thing. It was fun. So these guys these two have been the face of the franchise for fifteen years now and I think they've both built a brand off hating each other win behind the scenes. They actually haven't fully hated each other like they. They understand for years so now they understand we can. We can run this show in terms of like the outside of the show advertisements and the buzz on twitter and all this by joining together. It's something I've been waiting for most of the time. Now's the time now that I'm perfect season for. I think they're going to have record number of people watching each week because of the situation that we're in With you know I feel. Tv in general is just going to go up but I'm excited for it. I like both of them. Bananas is my guy. He's number one that I root for obviously but west is. I always want to see him. Do good to people. Forget we had Laura. Study challenged close. Show like five years. I've I forget it. Constantly and that bananas listened to that interview and commented on his own for two week period involved in the world showers. Girotti are anyway. I was very excited when I was like. This is a no brainer because nobody getting stale and when you're watching it you know they don't really hate each other like I used to. But then they. Both are savvy rallied D. TV veterans. They understand how to make up storylines and stuff like that. Get more Airtime and this is a brilliant way to get own the airtime. I'm also glad that Kara in poly or not on the season core the by the end of last season I had soured on both them and I had kind of come around to the Jordan side. Jordan is obviously annoying and not someone I would be friends with unrealised but I I get the feeling. He's not sincere in his hatred for other people whereas Kara I think took it two straight recap. Watch the challenge. The ratings like you mentioned were up big victim I Highest in like ten years or something like that. Yeah so people were. It's they're pulling people who haven't seen in a while. If you haven't watched I used to watch every season in high school I haven't college. I've never never stopped. I've come back in recent years because you but I'm I'm here to tell the people who did stop in the last ten or fifteen years back in saint people and there's a lot of saint in the old and the New People you can get a coin to very quick easily easily card is that it then. What else I'd I added. Something this is this was from. I don't know. Have you been on twitter? Did you say you were off twitter? His has been. I've been mostly off twitter because it's mostly follow news organizations and that gives mega hair. I'm looking out for my grey hairs which are coming in and an alarming rate. So I'm staying on. Have you heard Graham? Beat battles no. I'm not sure at all. I'm intrigued. Have you heard about you? Haven't heard about them at all. What did you say people have been tweeting at us in particular former Listen Rim cast listener of the year. Stu well that's all right. I'm in you about this. Here's what's happening. Rim famous producers Singer songwriters are going are battling each other on instagram. In front of tens of thousands of people like eighty thousand. People are watching it live on instagram. Lives split screen. Where it's you know so for example this Saturday. It's t pain and little John In. Here's a here's the okay. Here's the gist of it. So it's like producers more than it's there's some systems yesterday they had the guy from one republic and it's too late to apologize. Yeah Big Fan Anyway. Scott Stories on there they did one with Timbale in verse. Swiss Beats Mannie fresh Mannie fresh for Scott Storch They're doing t pain legacy adverse littlejohn on Saturday. The biggest packet. No it's I think timberline started it and they did something like this. Live awhile ago but what they do is. They're playing music. That they either wrote the lyrics for the songs or they made the beats or whatever and they're battling each other so one person will play a song and it'll start and then another in the play. It'll be twenty songs each and it'll be each song. The one person will play a song than the next person will play a song. Whoever wins that ground of the fight so who decides who wins just the people. Eight thousand people are going you know. They're Latinos the fan. A lot of people watching a ton of people watching fan reaction so like for example one republic guy. Yesterday was in a battle with another dude and he finished with beyond say Halo and it was the knockout punch guy. So so you're seeing stuff like that. They're you know they're having to put number one. You don't realize how many of these songs people are put out like the people that the least viewed one was the one yesterday which was the one Republican. I can't we don't even know his name. Yeah I you'd know it if I can't if I looked it up teddy teddy's something Ryan header. Yeah he the guy. Yeah I'm trying to figure out who he was definitely him. But I can't remember Benny Blanco. Whose AT JUST SOME DUDE. That has forty hits. I mean we're talking. These people have so many hits and it's it's basically a combination of like a chess match trying to you know win. Am I going to put my biggest hits to knock knock? That's a very interesting but you also like one person started on us with with the hands up. What's that saw GOB hands up hands? Go up you know that jam talking. Yeah what's that song called? I frankly don't know worth. A billion socks is absolute jam and he laid it in the first one and it was a knockout. All I do is win. Dj Can do is when TJ calendar. One of the guys. He was the producer songwriter for that and he laid him out in the first blow. Knock knock out punch right. There is did he lose the rest of them. No because everyone's thinking about that knock out earlier. It's like a chessmaster. Boxing match a live concert. Because they're just you know riffing they're talking shit to each other it's awesome. It is cost them. I I how do who decides who wins who. I know you said the plan vote ran. There's no actual vote on instagram. Live is there no? It's not just it's just like everyone knows header knocked out. Benny Blanco ever knows that. Ram It's not a thing you don't need to worry about your thinking much into it. Everybody knows does he win next round. That's my fun. We're fast and loose. It's just we're trying to figure out. People are trying to get all sorts of wild names matchmaker. Yeah he's the him in. Swiss beets are the ones who originally did it and now they're trying to figure out you know they're trying to get people to do it. People are talking about like Justin timberlake getting on there with US or they're talking dream matches out here. We got huge names. There's GonNa be there's GonNa be two hundred thousand people watching that bet. That's not in the Biz that many on instagram streams is insanity. That's the biggest streams in the world. That's and that's just that's like their peak numbers like dropping. There's millions of people that are watching the throughout because we're talking in hour long competition in it's always at eight hundred thousand so easily. A million people are tuning in How crazy I am watching new girl and doing what you're doing but Saturday night. T pain on one of its just on their INSTAGRAM's era already. You've ever seen it and whatever it's going to be good it's GonNa be good okay. I'm sold but that reminds me Saturday. Night Fricken Wrestlemainia is not it is. Yes you have a quick take on Wrestlemainia. It's a two night event this year with no fan fan since I mean I don't. It's going to be like six hours. I've I've heard three hours each night. They've never done two nights like this. There's a lot of big names Breslin. It's the biggest show of the year. I'M SKEPTICAL. There's no fans it hasn't gone great. In my opinion they've done other like the lead up and smack downs with Dave leaned on showing past pay per views during raw. Like they'll have the though this play. Well it's three hours of RAW. They see it's hard to do. It doesn't that that doesn't bode well for event the year being in the same scenario that definitely does not. I am skeptical. I'm going to definitely watch. I just don't know how you get the big feel of a wrestlemainia without huge stadium in the people and the buzz that usually it's just not as fun. You know you almost. Obviously we're desperate for live events but this is one ram almost like I feel like I wish they almost wouldn't do it because it's going to be so much worse than the regular anyway. All right. Well there's a ton of other stuff we could talk about but your kids are up from their naps now and Chitter chatter and you've got to go take care of them make sure given the once-over for the hair. The hair go about your day. That was on a different episode. We didn't mention that on this episode. People have no idea where referencing. You just can't listen to the rose cast.

WHOA starting to line up here Black Panther got a two for entertainment entertainment but the story kind held the down from eight. Remember four Black Klansman number three Roma Dang. Yeah that kind of surprises me. You didn't really even live entertainment on my entertainment list. I put second to last and it still was up there. It's still was up there actually. First or second and acting I and originality in fourth and story expected forget its third their best movie imagining attention. Yeah if I paid attention attention. The WHO knows there to a stunning number two rim a star is born stunning listen. I didn't expect this to happen when I made the list. That's the thing about my rating scale. I don't know who's going to come out on. My favorite favorite movie was a star is born but who I think is the best picture. It's not that Green Bay it's crazy. Yeah wow how okay. Who Do you think is going to win the best picture? I I read all the stuff so I knew the favorites are I have. I don't know I thought I would have thought before war. I I looked so I read a I read a thing online Right before about stars born and apparently it's not even it's it's got no chance sat accurate. I think it's probably the second or third likeliest but it's lost a lot of momentum. Yeah I would have thought that was going to be the winner but now now it sounds like no it sounds like Roma is the likeliest driller. Okay like I don't think it's the best but I would like black Klansman to win. I think that's how how you get like does not know if it has a chance. I think that's how you if you want your Oscars to be remembered you pick a movie that is like really in line with the Times the era and then people remember like Black Klansman won best picture. Spike Lee gave a speech. He wasn't nominated for do the right thing in which people have been talking about for thirty years basically. I think it'd be interesting that when I think Rome is going to win now okay. Quick picks best actor Christian Bale L. Bradley Cooper Rami Malik Vigo Mortenson Willem Defoe is also up. But we didn't see that Mutola's AKASA. Yeah Who's your peg. Is that who we actually was played. Some said like you didn't know random person fake if you've been no I haven't seen a movie. I don't think so I would give it to remmy Bradley Cooper right behind him I would. I would give it to Christian Bale. I think he's probably going to win. But if it's such a dog shit movie why would you give him his. It's here's here's the cavs portrayal. It was perfect. Here's the caveat. He when he accepts the award he needs to praise the makeup team. Whoever helped to make him look serves serves as much credit as he does absolutely actress Ulitsa a pre AP Areso from Roma Lady Gaga a star? Ars Born Olivia Colman the favourite those of the three movies. You've seen I've seen these two movies Glenn close in the wife and Melissa McCarthy and can can you ever forgive me. Is that Melissa McCarthy movie good it's fine okay it's fine. It's pretty good. I've heard Jesus scumbag. Her character is a scumbag. But it's one of those ones. It's really kind of root for the SCUMBAG I'll tell you Glenn close's of virtual lock to win the she. Yeah and the wife deservedly so or I I think deservedly so okay especially compared to the other nominees here and the I will say that. The wife is a dumpster fire of a movie. In my opinion. That's a lifetime original quality movie. She is incredible and incredible. I would give it to Gaga honestly can't get over how stupid you got to win anything because there's not enough time in the show for her to give a speech that Gaga gives. You're going to be outrageous and I like Gaga uh-huh actor in a supporting role Marshall Alma her Chale Abbey Adam driver. They all deserve to be recognized. Except for Bush Adam driver Russian clansman same Elliott and a star is born Sam Rockwell vice and Richard E grant in Kenya. Ever forgive me which again you haven't seen. He's he's the favourite right now ahead of marsh lobby. Wow so what would your pick be Mahershala. Okay yeah I probably would to the other people all in the movies that I've seen don't even have big roles even Bush isn't that big of a role in that movie. I don't really understand. Marcia is the movie. It's him and another guy. Yup I agree the Richard E. Grand Canyon. Forgive me fantastic. Won't be mad at all if he wins they do this with older people. Sometimes yeah a key marsh. Ali is going to win a boatload of awards since the rest of his career even though he's a very laid linearly hasn't he. Yeah he has one of these. He came out of nowhere like thirty seven. Basically I still think he's GonNa he's GonNa win a lot of stuff. He's getting a lot of good roles he's GonNa want to. This isn't for Richard e Graham basically and I think he's GonNa get it actress in a supporting role. Amy Adams in Vice Marina de top in Roma who is the mother mother. Emily squeegee King and if Beale street could talk which I haven't seen Rachel vice in the favourite and Emma stone in the favorite. Who Do you got Abie I I would give it to the mother in Roma in Rome? Interesting okay I don't know who the favourite is. I'm sorry. What was your name again Marina del Rey? Todd Todd Pick Spanish guy and I can't say to era okay yet to be rat ta the IRA arena data bureau. I give it to her. I think there's a concern that Emma Stone Rachel ice might split the boats here. So we'll see what happens opens their. I don't know who goes to Emma Stone Emma Stone. Yeah Okay quick. My personal power rankings for actors number five Timothy Shalam. You're talking about not anything to do with these movies. Yes just top living actors. TV or movies. Yes Stephen Stephen Covey's Timothy Shalam. Why take into account their TB roles shirk okay number five Timothy Shell may some might say a tumble from the top right? I would've put him last year. He was in a movie called beautiful boy this year. was not a fan and I was not a fan so I love here. We're just Gaza last year. Because he's got the credibility and I think he was something else. I saw two. He was pretty good in the movie. The movie stunk. I think it was a misstep for him. Next up. Amy Adams number four this is actor and actresses ABC. Why not I didn't? I is in no way to solve them like five. There were worthy big. Amy Adams guys. Everyone knows that huge huge number. Three Claire Foy okay. Okay number. Two Adam driver not just for Black Klansman by. I think he's really good in Star Wars. He's really good in this movie called. How Patterson Adam drivers the man well number one Marshal Ali Alex the best you Michael Beat as a make your list because you didn't see creed to to why folks that is not the reason you know spoiler alert I have a pretty good the idea of how creed choosing to go to be a good movie? I don't think I'm be shocked by anything that occurs can wait. But yeah it's like if I were to if I were to have movie posters posters up around here on a shame I haven't seen pre two. It's truly it kills me other movies worth seeing. I don't know how many other movies as you saw. So if you haven't got one wreck in I'm spend to see it on the list. GIMME eight grade. Eighth grade was that was a really good well done movie and it was super entertaining. I agree I thought the story left a little bit to be desired. But it's also it's a movie for adults but eighth graders should be able to see that movie yet it. It shouldn't be too crazy. I like dates ally. I thought it was funny. Pretty good direct. joyal debut for Bo Bo. Burnham US our age. Here's here's movies. The I think should have been gone more. Nominations or nominations at all I reformed with Ethan Hawke increased and small town struggling with his fate also cedric the entertainer in that movie. Oh really good in them of. Mika first reformed controversial movie controversial. I man about Neil Armstrong with Claire. Foy and Ryan Gosling okay. You know what I saw saw that movie two or anything. It's not. I just realized I watched that because I take picture and forgotten movies totally forgotten. It's up for like sound mixing. That movie should've been up for the accidents. This that's not best picture you don't think it is. I loved it theaters. I think the name. I think it's a bad name. I think if it were named Armstrong number one it gives you a better idea of what it's about because there's not about going to the moon necessarily he'll they go to move and spoiler compound Neil Armstrong. The name hurting forgot. I watched that movie because I was anticipating being a best picture. I completely forgot. I told you to watch this. I gotTa See I. I like that a lot and watch it again. Almost added Ryan Gosling to my list. A huge gosling doc. Crazy Rich Asians maybe not a best picture nom. Hey that's the ROM com of the moment for sure. That's the Best Rom Com Mike and Remember. It's very memory. Good and very watchable. Absolutely a quiet place was my number number two theater experience of the year. What's that one? You didn't see a quiet place. I don't think so. Is that John. Krasinski is as named John Kuczynski Brzezinski and his wife. Whose name escapes me? which kills me? God what is her name. She super famous emily. Emily was God. That's embarrassed humiliated their kids the the the whole premise of the movie is you can't make any noise. Otherwise blasters answers for secret I would very much recommend it. It's it's it's a scary movie but it's not like a not that scary. It's good when you're in a theater are and it's dead silent and you have to be dead silent the monster. It's good it's good a couple more. The writer is about a guy who who is a bull rider any like doug gets a brain injury interesting part of that movie the real guy and all his friends and family play the P play their themselves in the movie and it's not that bad terms of act. Wow really you are never really here with Joaquin. Phoenix Love Simon. Also a good movie. Leave no trace our recommend that when I think that might be on Hulu or something I love dogs Zahn. Hbo Animated Wes Anderson Movie. He also if you WANNA get into problematic depictions of that. You can do that but it was pretty good movie Jumanji. Ab Jonah's hilarious. Okay when I can Kevin the art who is good. I have great on here. Totally little predictable. Charlie's their own Zenit annihilation. I need to rewatch senile ation. I didn't love it on porn. I watch but smart people web it so that makes me want to be one of them. Sabrina movies batteries. The wife stunk. Okay wife stunk. Doha's link a wrinkle in time was a big disappointment. I don't know if you read the book I didn't kids rink longtime big disappointment and wasn't a fan of beautiful boy movies. I haven't seen yet creed to tops the list so I was GonNa tell you but the way it was revealed really hurt widows was I haven't seen widows game nights if Beale Street could talk which many people thought would be a best picture on that strict by Barry Jenkins. We'll watch that before for the list came out because I heard I'm still going to probably watch that but I wanna see that too. I believe Brian tyree. Henry's in that big Brian Terry Henry Fan also hello mission impossible fallout. I am not caught up mission impossible. Everyone says this is the best one hereditary scary movie two. I was too scared to CNN theaters join me to be honest And the couple. I heard were good. But don't know much about the death of Stalin in the hate you give. Ab anything else. You WanNa say here. This incredibly credibly lost saw the hit you give I should say Yeah not a rousing recommendation..

"Right anyway. I like long shots. And there's a lot of those in this movie Yes. I just enjoyed the movie. I can't totally articulate. Why but I like the bad is at its long and it's really slow and the barriers to enjoying? It are really really high. And if you if you're those getting away you're not gonna like anything else on this a lot of movies this year I've Noticed when going back through them Had really low budgets and this was the lowest of them. Oh interesting fifteen million. Most of that probably went to the recreation nation of quorums childhood home like that was he really faithfully recreated the house he grew up here. Just for example Black Panther was one point three five million billion no no one hundred and thirty five million probably know sorry to two hundred ten million okay Black Panther. I I think black lacked director along with maybe able to Vernay in a wrinkle in time to have one hundred plus million dollar budget with Ryan Kugler yet. The favourite was the favourite was also fifteen gene had a couple of low really. Yeah fifteen then. Black Panther two hundred was the highest. You another digits. Yeah nine point two I gave him my ranking meal after watching it now you know into a misty eyed. Wow big I like that credible I liked it but again I put my phone on a different room and didn't have in watch it on TV. I wonder if Black Panther made more than all these movies combined. I think it's probable. Yeah Okay Oh no because the next one is a star is born. Oh okay all of them except for stars born you combine it. I think Black Panther. Netflix did This is directed by Bradley Cooper Super This sensation of two thousand eighteen. You could say starring Bradley Cooper Lady Gaga Andrew Dice Clay. I think it's still probably Dave David Chapelle same Elliot. How much did this make? Four hundred twenty three by Pacers one point two billion. Yeah it's been out for a full year two. Yeah other nominations. The side from best picture picture. Best actor Bradley Cooper Best Actress Lady Gaga. You're telling me that Lady Gaga up for main gene actress and Marshall is up for supporting best supporting actor. Sam Elliott barely in it. Same Elliott but this is like a a lifetime achievement award adapted screenplay cinematography exam Elliott doled gruff guy with the mustache. He's been the visser in the movie. Yeah his brother are there. Even though he's in the same category as Mersal. Oliver Sean Win. Yeah he's he's on the movie for ten minutes. Are you the joke me all right. Let's not get mad here and this original song. There's never been a better more obvious shoe to that song once once a day if not more and it was like ten to twenty times a day right after I wash everybody who saw this opt on the soundtrack music media. I'll start with what I liked about the movie and then we'll go to you. This was probably my favorite theater experience of the year. Okay that sounds talk. And that's saying something the musical performances were awesome. They were awesome and the way they were shot onstage while it was never from the audience perspective. It wasn't really you can see people audience. It felt like you were on stage with them. uh-huh Fabulous Music Lady Gaga obviously nailed the music scene vocals. were out of this world rim. And she held her own. I I think is an actress. I think shield their own. I don't think I dropped it fabulous. But she held her own. The two storylines coming away out of this movie were how awesome Bradley Cooper is and how we all talk about like Justin timberlake being a sensation. Doing all these things acting and singing. I'd say Bradley Cooper's the top V close. He's way more talented than Justin Timberlake who I thought was previously the most down man alive. They're his performance that in there. They're performing warming shallow at the. I heard you talk about a month event that it was good. I I don't have like here's what I liked about the story or is it was awesome. It was just a really fun time at the movies Bradley Cooper as a Rockstar. Works so well and he does it so convincingly Vinson Lee and his voice is tremendous. Here's what's bad about the movie Bradley. Cooper's voice now talking it wasn't always perfect. It reminded me of Bruce Wayne in the new Batman. Surely it Kinda changed or like you know. In game of thrones little finger like changes accents. It wasn't always is perfect but it worked on his regular voice. It kind of fits like get was he. 'cause he's this old rocker at the end of his career kind. So it kind of fits that it wasn't a perfect voice. Okay I like it. I'm looking I'm I gotTA find criticize. You'd reach in. Here's the Eliud couple of things. Someone said it felt like playing career mode on Rockstar to K nineteen okay. That's exactly right. That's funny but hey there's a reason we play the career modes in Turkey. Fun Fun I hadn't seen in the original stand either. It's been remade like four or five times. I didn't know the twists necessarily or even if they're the same even so did feel mildly predictable. I wasn't shocked by anything I. It was one of those movies where I expected to cry. While I was watching it. And the waterworks just never came maybe that keeps it out of the top echelon okay and last thing. This is a common criticism. I don't even know if I agree with that. It didn't really you know the movie didn't really say anything. New Per Se no sin engaging story trappings of fame classic rise and fall but not a groundbreaking. Okay what do you got what. What do you got bad things about it? Anything you didn't like about stars born I loved it all rim. I'm not gonNA give you anything bad. Okay that's fine lines this movie three or four times since the watching it the only one I've seen more than once that was question again. Yeah Watch it tonight. If someone asked asked me you WanNa Watch starboard Halio stars board crazy. This movie's tremendous rim. Yes if we're just talking about my favorite favorite and that's not what my list is about. Okay just to be clear if you're just talking to my favorite of these movies it's a star board. It's entertaining in in the performance by Gaga and in Cooper incredible those who have an undeniable can just separated from her and many people are saying that I saw so heated the live performance. He showed up at one of her shows and they did a live performance of it in he was looking at it in the same way. I have something that you have something there between these two and it shines brightly off the screen. I don't advocate for adultery but I wanNA see rumor married anymore. It's interesting game. I do think absolutely I watched the award show. She is outrageously over the top in her praise for him and her love for him and he just Kinda like relax lady Gaga will hold up him. I saw this performance. He walked onstage in the way he was looking at her. My God I've never seen in someone look at someone like that. It looked like someone like as they're getting married looking at each other as the now pronounce your man and why that's always looking at her. Never seen anything like it anyway. Great movie great movie. If you haven't seen this what are you. Why are you even listening to us to see this? This is the kind of movie that if you're getting a new if you're investing in a new home theater and you want to get a bunch like action movies that look good on four K.. You also want a star is born because performances are so in your face ace in the music and the sound is so good that you want it you want it to enveloppe. Uab You want to know the number eight point point nine. That's hi that's pretty high while a little bit below Roma on my scale and if you weren't if you're talking strictly entertainment the best of these probably by far his realm is not necessarily like entertaining all-time Blackhawk working good time. Next up and last of the best picture nominees in one more thing rim. You WanNa talk about music movies. This one puts Bahamian rhapsody grave. Okay and believing rhapsody Belushi number one hits in real life. These are these so these are the songs in Stars Board are better than anything queen put out. Okay you WANNA take there. It is won't buy me disagreements. The best song ever heard it's really I mean it's not a joke. It's incredible incredible movie obviously remedy. We're going to like this movie if you Roy. Moore's next up and last of the best picture nominees vice directed by Adam McKay written by Adam. McKay he was the brain behind the big short good accommodate type stuff vice Has Stars Christian Bale. As Dick Cheney Amy Adams as his wife Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld Sam Rockwell as George W Bush Tyler Perry makes an appearance as Colin Powell. A lot of nominations for vice best director this actor for Christian Bale supporting actor for Sam Rockwell supporting supporting actress Ramey Adams screenplay film editing makeup and hairstyling. Ab What did you think was good about vice. It was just a fun movie. Veit Kinda the field to me of. What's Leonardo DiCaprio movie? Wolf of Wall Street okay. It kinda had that feel to me that type of movie where it took a real story and Kinda it was almost like a parody of real. There were all real events Christian Bale One of my favorites. I thought he did really good and he transforms almost better than anybody. jaw-dropping makeup job. You can't you can't tell it all that it's him indistinguishable could put Dick Cheney in the movie. And you wouldn't know legitimately the best if you compare it last year. Gary Oldman Oldman in darkest hour a team that blows out of the water. His crazy how much she looks like him. Anything else you liked about this movie. Those fast paste can't move in a lot of stuff in it. Let's go to digest. Okay you want it to be I one. I got a feeling rammed in like this movie at all Christian Bale incredible performance. That's the good the bad just about everyone else. I thought stunk DONC. Amy Adams Amy Adams was fine. I guess we'll six. I'm a huge Amy Adams a guy checkout sharp objects if for her alone the same rockwell. Bush was like an average Saturday night live impression. I'd say it was way worse that was it was a bad railroad bed for I supporting actor. Yeah Steve Carell did not remind me of Donald Rumsfeld at all. Now these things. You'd think that's fine. Like what was the story like. What was everything else about when you have Christian Bale? WHO's literally a reincarnation of Dick Cheney? You can't have you can't surround them with Comic Book Character Impressions People that don't they didn't do a good job Jabba even having them look like. Why didn't you put the makeup? On Bush. Exactly Bush character looked like trash. He didn't anything like George Bush exactly that he was so gaunt. Compared to the real George Bush Donald Rumsfeld was like this short like scrawny guy. It's like this isn't he was like an old guy with you know lots hanging skin going on this. It's weird that just Dick. Cheney was identical and everyone else was like amateurish. Also report I thought stylistically. Ab this thing was all over. The place agreed the narrator storyline and it's a storyline that there's a narrator unnecessary. There was some unnecessary time jumps. There's one part where they were like back in his youth and then it jumped to him being the vice president and he's sitting in a room like eating a Danish and then jump back to something else and it's like what was the point of that. ooh There's no reason for that the there was some gimmicky parts which I won't mention because they're kinda spoilers there were. There was something in the middle. That was like okay hilarious areas so funny and then there is something a few conversations that took place where the characters were talking saying things that they obviously sit in say in real life who was meant to be like some absurdist parody and they it was like a device to make our point but it was just over long like we got it. We know that the whole whole thing is crazy It was more distracting than effective. I thought and then they superimpose some characters on real footage like the mission accomplished thing they put same rockwall who already doesn't look like him onto their real footage it looked like SNL. And I don't mean that in a good way like S. and L.'s. A weekly show. This is a big budget movie forrest. There's Gump look better twenty five years ago. So you got all those things that are scratch distracting the Cheney character..

"Part you know. Vh One or FX affects. What do they call those when they call hero verse that people needed one of those whereas like six weeks? Our to our longs per week I. I needed way more than two hours to tell this story. I think I two other movies came to mind. I I think I prefer movies. That focus in in on a portion of someone's life not the whole thing Ali with will Smith. You're not the best movie ever but it was like a focus point in time where you learned about him. The character the man rather than just like bullet points of the major things in his life ray with with Jamie Fox did his whole life but it was three hours very long. That's the longest movies I've ever seen. Yeah raise extremely long so if he wanted to do that here. You could've win. They didn't they had some powerful subject matter in there too like was he was gay in the Eighties Nineties which was rough and they barely touched on it like they kind of flu that he they flew by that he had a double life basically and they didn't really they couldn't really dig into it deep so it kind of just kind of a montage of yeah it was like a plane music showing them play music and then they're showing throwing him like leading this double life and how troubling that is but they never really tackled the issue and couldn't because it was already two hours I another thing I wish they should have shown better is throw the the band's connection with the fans. Why do people like Queen? They just show that they became really popular. Why why they just? It's just like look at this genius. Why is he genius? Why do people like this person in this band and I think that would have helped the live aid seen hit even more because that was kind of the first scene where they showed fans like like appreciating their music? But we haven't seen that any point up to that another thing was and I don't. I'm not a huge queen guy and I didn't know all the facts. Apparently some some of the time line was like religiously off like totally changes everyth- okay for example. When he was diagnosed with AIDS was totally totally years off basically was a Mayton they said before live aid and in real life? WHO's three years later? Oh Oh so. He didn't tell his bandmates before them. Okay and live aid was not like a courageous. I have AIDS. This is my last Hurrah. I'd any moment performance which percent so I mean you don't need all the facts straight when you're working with historical material at all but when you make it like the point of the the crux of the film. It's tough I mean. I'll put it this way room. I I went and watched I think I watched an actual Freddie Mercury documentary prior to I. I'm pretty sure it was before and I liked that just as much if not more. I mean there's an awesome performance Freddie. Mercury was awesome performer. especially I mean you can go on Youtube. Tim Watch anything. And it's the upgrade but the movie. I don't know if it was a little disappointed. Great seen couple of great scenes though. Yeah I'm shocked. It's up for best picture. I'll put it that way because I'm not rare opinion that I am to. What are you rank it? Oh you want the number. Yeah the digital give us the gives you the numbers. I give it a generous a six point five. That's pretty low folks next up the favourite with a you directed by yorgos lamp. The most starring Olivia the trio. The incredible trio of Olivia Colman Emma Stone. Dan and Rachel Weiss Vice. I Dunno it's a black comedy drama about two cousins jostling to be the favourite of Queen Anne and it's set in the early seventeen hundreds first decade of the seventeen hundreds. I believe aby what what do you got on the favourite this does now say it does not seem like your jam at all I liked. Ah The act the acting from the three actresses. That's about it. I hated the story. Hated the story. The funny parts weren't funny. Funny it was kind of. They pegged it as a comedy I mean I guess I guess. Did you laugh you ever laugh. I mean it's that British style of comedy where you just go. Oh that's okay. I've I saw in theaters. There were not a lot of laughs in the theater. I'll put it that way. Free them worked perfectly together you could. They could affect just acting acting off of each other. It was good. I just didn't I didn't work for me. Didn't draw in. Here's what I thought was good. The actress is terrific. Chemistry Olivia Colman. Who Played Queen Anne the oldest of the three obviously? She was really good and she. She is going to be Queen. Elizabeth in the next couple of seasons of the crown. She's really Sinclair foy. which I don't think it's too early for that? You condemn me if you WanNa talk about the crown. But it gave me confidence that she'll be to carry the ground. I mean if you're into these period piece favorite we'll alike crowned it's different. It's not comedy it Sir is in its. I've recommended she before that if you're if you're struggling to find something to watch with your wife not you but if you're a listener out there and you're a guy and you think what me and my wife don't like watching the same things on your likes. The crown might be for you because it's got the British monarchy stuff mid since mid century and kind of the. I'm a fan of British monarchy stuff. I think it's an interesting setting and topic. Yeah clervoy terrific. I recommend the crown Anyway back to the bad of this movie. I didn't take a lot of notes on this. Not My cup of tea was the first one I put down after I left. I just couldn't get on board with the style style was weird. It's such a detraction from traditional these type above period piece stuff scorching high right now and this was like a turn in that upside down a little bit with the way it was done. I guess some people are are into. It wasn't for me. I didn't like the story. I left the theater in a bad mood. I didn't think it was that funny and idle and I like these these. I like these types of thing. Yeah I like the stuff so I went into it with high expectations. And it's getting big praise. Big Praise critics. Love this move. Okay so my Oscar rating scale. I've I've this acting story originality and entertainment. I gave it the worst score possible hospital. So they ranked dead last in story originality and entertainment entertainment story for sure those board originality original. But I can see why you wouldn't want to give it that. Here's here's my number for six point joint worse than Bohemian lower than fairy magically bind Black Panther and Black Klansman okay. 'cause while I don't have I I I've raided like two hundred movies in my spreadsheet. Six point one is and I'm pretty tough not a lot of nine eight six point one is pretty pretty low on the move through so now my favorite now I get why people like it. It's just not for me now for me next up Green Book I got a lot on this one. AP Green Book. Peter Fairly director. The Guy who did something about Mary and others other screwball comedies starring Vigo Mortenson the Great Marshal Ali. It's also nominated for best actor Vigo best supporting actor Martial Ali. which is what the support? What do you mean crazy story is about two guys? And they're both leads. Needs both the leads of this movie. Let's go back to the favor. Would it be supported. The the the favorite has ten total nominations. I think that's tied for the most best director. Best Actress Olympia Coleman best supporting actress. Emma stone and Rachel Weiss both got that for why those two those two. I'd say we're had more her. Yes importance to the favorite. I don't understand crazy have bothers me. The most is Marshall per screen. But that's the standard these two should both either have to put them in supporting. They have the same number of lines. I bet to leads so you can you have to I. I think I'm sure you can. They both sure it's crazy. I you wonder that there because I think everyone kind of knows who's going to win. Best actor I I wonder sometimes if the yeah my win supporting so we can win it because he also wanted. I think supporting for Moonlight one could argue that he was like as much of a lead in moonlight as anyone else. Anyway I mean that's a La- you can buy that a little more because he's not in like half the movie he's literally in the entire your movie talking in every scene. It's crazy this movie. If you haven't heard about Don Shirley a successful classical oh slash jazz pianist in the sixties he hires Tony Villalonga a racist long to drive them around the south while on tour in nineteen sixty two okay. It's a right off the bat. You know that this is good. Feel good see. Why can't we all just get along long movie? I like those movies I'm pressure. AB likes those movies. Sawyer should be on board with this. Let me quick before we talk about the movie. Give you a quick. Rundown of the controversies around the movie. Yeah I'd like to hear those because I've heard there are somebody I haven't really dug deep into. I'm GonNa Start with the controversies and then I'm going to explains why we shouldn't like we're not supposed to like the movie okay. The press tour was a debacle Morrison Dropped an end bomb He said the N. Word he didn't drop them. You know what I mean like. He said it while on a panel oppressed like QNA panel talking about how things have changed since the nineteen sixties. So on the scale of saying that word this was not like bad intentions. Okay but he said it and I don't think anyone was expecting him to say Eh. And when someone's recorded on the phone that's GonNa go around. In its Vigo the headlines Vigo Mortenson drops an EMBA. He apologized Marshall accepted his apology. Damage done though number to the family of Don Shirley said the film was loaded with falsehoods. His brother called a real a story. You're supposed to be. It's a real story. The Guy who wrote the Guy who wrote the movie is Vigo Mortenson character son Nick Villalonga okay. So that changes how you watch it now because you know who's being portrayed in certain ways Don Shirley's family said the movie was a symphony of lies is That they weren't actually friends and it was more of an employer employee relationship the bright. What the writer Nick Valongo said that Don Shirley himself told him not to speak with anyone before the making the film before he died and the director said that they tried to contact the family? But couldn't don on surely said that he was friends with Tony Val long unreal life so just a lot of competing narratives from the family between the.

He had his white compatriot in the forests. A help him infiltrated by being the guy showing up to the meetings historic by the way true story. Yes it's a true story and it was written by the officer or who pulled this off so ab. What'd you make of Black Klansman full disclosure? I Rim I didn't know John. David Washington was Denzel Washington. Son had no. Oh I dea. When did you find that out? That's very after the movie so I looked up who he was and found out. He's my favorite actor son. No no one knows that when they see him. I didn't know it for several. I'm a huge ballers guy he's in ballers. He's like one of the main Gaza hollers. He got the late start. He played football for. I know a lot about John. David Washington He paid his own way to play college. Football at I got I WANNA say Morehouse And then played in Europe for awhile caught on with some practice. Squads there someone we know who know someone who played with John David Washington Genton and they were like sharing hotel room and Johnny of Washington was like.

Washington once you know though it's impossible to send me looks it's like his ass and he talks like him. Yeah Yeah what'd you think of the movie. I liked the movie rim. It wasn't my favorite of the year though those it's an interesting topic. I thought the real standout actor to me was tougher. Fabulous did a great job is up up for any supporting actors or anything. He's not Not at the Oscars as your first snub screen. I just think it's funny buddy. The hippies upset about the guy from that seventy show in the movie black clansmen nominated KKK. Guy Really should have got to not. I don't know what else to tell you a good. It was a great story. I didn't love the movie. Though I really didn't do you like the stylistic stick spike Lee is a different yeah director. He'll put some stuff in there. That might not seem like fit. Did you like the stylistic choices not really a lot of thing law thinks I'm that's caught. A lot of attention is the end. We won't spoil. What the end is but the end is different from the rest of the movie there throughout the movie? There's a lot of like obvious direct references to things that are happening now. Current Day tied earned day so when they sh- show some things are more direct times the current day. I wasn't opposed to it even though some people felt like Kinda threw them out of story a little bit. I didn't think that was the case to Mina Criticisms Abe I don't know why but I expected some laughs. I don't know why expected laughs. I think it's because the premises so absurd that there would have been more comedy in. There wasn't allowed to come to kind of look the way. Spike shot it though. It kind of felt like there should be some laughs. Laughs is well yeah. It felt like you're watching like kind of a anchorman. Yeah Times you know and it was Kinda long it was I think is two hours twenty minutes or or thereabouts to fifteen but it was always. It was always moving. I thought stuff was always happening. I'm just GONNA put it this way room. I'll probably never watched this movie again. I think I said that I I do that with good movies. You Watch them and you're like that's true. Yeah you know not that. That's not a huge knock but yeah I'll never watched it again. Probably it was worth seeing. If only for the insane story that we would know about this. Move absolutely okay so we're both good. Here's my I gave it an eight point seven aby so higher than Black Panther the higher than Black Panther. The story was too good and it's just It was a bold visible movie. Spike Lee doesn't really care about about pleasing the big audience. He's going to do whatever he wants to do. And say what he wants to say and the ending really hit with me so I was. I was a fan hyphen next Bohemian. rhapsody this was directed by Bryan Singer. Now exposed scumbag disc's exposed and then he left during the middle of the movie because I think his mom got sick. And then was picked. Up by Dexter Fletcher so this had to directors and a Tumultuous Making King of starring Rami Malik as Freddie Mercury and bunch of other people. Frankly I haven't heard of. Don't expect a sheer much of you star in this movie ribbit. There was. This movie was no no have any of the other people and I never will. I read a lot of stuff. Wow the other guys now spot on I. It's not what it was about. The frankly they're spot on for people that we don't know in real life either like Freddie Mercury is but we don't know the other guys in Queen it's not a so they might be spot on their spot on a boring rock. So what'd you like about this movie. Let's start with the things we liked. It was a story. I I didn't I didn't fully know I wasn't a huge queen fan so I didn't know a ton about Freddie Mercury. I've seen now are you more. Did you listen suggestions happiness. Listen I knew I knew queens biggest hits I was always a fan of some of their big songs You know they're at sports stadiums. When we were growing up we will ride you? We are the champions the kind of stock exactly. I thought the acting by the lead was one of the best of of the year if not the best way to find out room. Stay tuned stay tuned. He did an incredible job in the. It kept me locked in. Because of the music was gray. Everything was the scene where they're doing the the concert That happened in real life. That was tremendous. Those are literally the two do good things I have Rami. Malik terrific one thing one of our criteria. When we're talking about best backer is could someone else have done? This and I don't think anyone anyone else could have done this even with makeup and prosthetics and all that stuff. I don't think anyone I don't think a person better suited for the role than agree the live. They'd seen their famous live aid concert and London or wherever it was maybe La best recreation of a big event that I've seen in a movie. And if you'RE GONNA IF YOU'RE GONNA recreate exceeding that really happened on a big scale you have to give a different perspective. Otherwise we watched on Youtube and they did and I thought that was a really really really good. That was an awesome scene. And the associate That's it that's all I those two things things were all I liked about. The movie didn't really like this movie I didn't I was not a fan could have been on. Vh One. I wouldn't go that far. You went there. I will agree that like some of his. The other story lines that were going on didn't really I didn't really draw me in. I didn't care all that much music. bio-pics are just tough because they want to show the entire fall fall like rise from obscurity to the peak to the finish and you have to put in musical performances which take time so you gotta fly through through like in this case. I don't know twenty five years at breakneck speed so they're jamming stuff in like. There was one scene where it was like. They're about to like break up the next thing you know like within thirty seconds they start writing their biggest hit four. There's one scene where they meet with the record executive I I like the guy from the record company for the first time and within thirty seconds of meeting him. It's like all right now you're signed. Here's your new manager. Let's go make a record a slow down a little. But there's just so much to tackle. Yeah with this it almost would have been better suited for like a six.

"This was in April. How many are there? Tell the great question. I don't know like thirty in the marvel. Cinematic Universe this this world. Nineteen I believe maybe twenty have been released already with a few more calm Like this year yes gene. I watched them all K- including Black Panther that was included in me watching these. I didn't know it was going to be an Oscar nominee at that point or whatever over but yeah I have seen them all now. Did you know did you do it. In order yeah yeah. I don't Cimino order. It was great it was great. I can't recommend something more than to go through all the marvel movies movies and watch their grandparents. Those are good movies. I hadn't seen most of them omitted effort over the last couple years basically because I wanted to get in on the avengers. That's why I wanted Eh to. Yeah what did you see Infinity War which came out last summer with everybody else and Black Panther to watch them all. Most of them are awesome. Yeah awesome awesome movies and when you watch them in order you start to pick up lots of That's part of what I wanted to do. It is well because I saw the Black Panther phenomenon. I couldn't go to it because I hadn't seen any of them and that could go to vendors and I'm like I want whenever the next avengers comes out. I want to be their day was ready. I'm ready for the next next avengers coming out in a couple of months. Where would you put Black Panther? What quadrant the top quadrant of marvel movies? I'd say it's not my favorite favorite I think like some of the captain America ones are good. The avengers are all good. The latest avengers might be my favorite. It's a good movie really good movie But Black Panther dried up there. I feel the same way I three probably. I'd say safely in the top third or top five out of the Johnny. Whatever movies I weirdly? I love the Captain America movies. I don't feel so good. That's the best. Like that's the best like franchise so this is safely in that one of the best ones. What what did you like about this movie? A. B. in general cast was phenomenal. I like the Black Panther character. I hadn't I didn't know anything about him going into it. He said I've never. I wasn't a huge guy I kind of dabbled from the outside new. My Spiderman congressmens on big big deep into the comic book game or anything like that so I didn't know the story at all. Aw I thought it was pretty good story for a Comic Book Movie Easier to follow. I thought that a lot of the other because a lot of the other marvel movies have other. MSU characters flying in and just for the sake of connecting them to other is just too much going on this is a pretty straight or to follow a story. You didn't necessarily need to have watched any other marvel movies to Joy Black Panther at audit also. I could've went in the theaters and watch. This would be fine. I was a big fan of the Said said the parts that were great about this movie really. You can talk about without spying anything. I thought the setting was awesome. The world that they were in was incredible. You kind of almost wanted to pass out in theaters. I you must wanNA pause it and like look around more To scenes to me that really stand out the casino seen Ab was like Damn. Now's incredible awesome bond movie. It was black Bond Yup and then the the to challenge unseens on top of the waterfall. Where also yeah with Michael be who it was great? It was great. The music was great. Just a really really fun movie. And we've even we haven't even touched on the cultural significance of this movie and learn why it's nominated obvious. That's why it's not the first black superhero movie. I mean it's it means a lot. I don't think people doesn't know that like growing up as a kid I didn't have any black black superhero. So I mean this would have been. This would have been huge if if I grew up with a Black Panther. I'd be Black Panther every day. Be Rocking that mask right now to this day if I despite a blank on superheroes but like there's there's no star wars yeah. There's no big Kinda huge franchises action type movies movies. There's no I mean. Who are the black action heroes growing up? Wesley Malaysian man. You gotta look up to necessarily That was obviously part of the reason. Why there's so much hyper and Wyatt? This movie more than anything proved you can make other shit ton of money with basely. Woes Ninety percent black casts this movement profited a billion plus dollars already credibly profited that while it might not even been the best marvel movie to come out in two thousand eighteen but but this was the only one that had any chance of getting a best picture which I'm fine with because I think it opens the door for more this blockbuster type movies grisly. I mean these type. The movies get a bad rap with though ords for no reason other than Sh- Nabi people not wanting to give them their shot Part of I didn't mention this but in the past couple years. The number of academy members has expanded greatly and there are now like like way more women and way more people of color voting so I think now is in direct response to the controversy. I think there's going to be way more movies. He's like this nominated. This can only be good for them to have popular movies in the best picture category. It can't hurt anyway if you're in a comic book movies at all or even if you're not but inveigle interested in you haven't seen this movie. I recommend it absolutely. I agree bad things. Do you have anything bad to say about this movie some criticisms Ab that could have been better her. No I mean this is kind of nitpicking. But I was in the middle of my comic book phase and I just seen like captain in America and I would've liked to be a couple more superheroes in there just caught up in that story I wanted like a halt to pop out of nowhere. I mean the the more heroes. There are in these superhero movies vendors with all the People Black Panthers there there frigging all the captain America. Iron Man all the people were there so I was in the middle of that kind of one more superheroes there but I can understand why they didn't. They were there. Ah to minor things that week criticism I can tell you didn't even really believe it if anything the cast is too loaded. I I think that'd be more. There might be necessary like Daniel Columbia is like I think one of the one of the greats right now. Best said is in the business in my opinion. The guy's got great is views barely unscreened. There's too many people you can't say no to all these like superstars that want to sign on for this movie so there was not there wasn't a screen time to go around. Olmos other thing is in. This was kind of the instant reaction when it came out Kilmartin kind of had a point and it took it took too long. Had A good point and it took too long. I think for them to kind of no spoilers but for them to kind of approach him with an open mind Salvi again nitpicky. It's a fun movie and it's if you haven't seen in the if you have the chance of CNN theaters would you like rim would. Would you like better this this movie or creed to. I hate the asking that question because I am when my great the probably the greatest shame in my life right now is that I haven't seen creed to talk with Mr. I'm there's no bigger creed guy uh-huh who's been out so I didn't see that in the theaters. That's crazy nuts. It's crazy and you know. Part of it is humiliating for Mrs. Mrs Wedding probably came into the spun does like Manna. Hope doesn't ask what's this. Wait for Michael Be Jordan. I hope he doesn't ask me about tree to. I probably wouldn't have asked you either but I just watched it myself. Humiliating Humiliating Eh incredible. You WanNa know why when right when it came out movie pass basically turn off. The spigot came out around the same time mission. Pass remember. Being at the theater and movie we pass wasn't were they when they ran out of money. Remember July or something they should take. Shut it down and didn't tell anybody so they wasn't an option on movie pass around and I kept telling myself like dog and I just never sh- I mean that's truly like I said I preface it a deep deep. Shame my at cre- to yet. Wow yikes sir. We'll see if we keep that in. That's how the next sub black Well what's your rating system. You very intriguing ratings infamous. Ab Oscar rating system. I feel like we can't get to it until the end because it's they're like puzzle pieces. I won't tell you the I'll I won't give you the ratings. I'll tell you what the scale is. So it's based on Ford criteria and then I rate them kind of like wrote Oh baseball it's acting story. Originality Entertainment. There's eight movies and you get one through eight so I ranked them eight points. The best gets one. So it's one to eight so the lower the lower your score the better and then the lowest score total of those four categories. You add all the numbers up. Is My best picture okay. I like that a lot. That's like the famous Rim scale for restaurants it's unassailable my rating system is have a big google. Doc a Google spreadsheet with all the movies. I've scene when I see him and notes write notes up to ever move Sanyo Wild. Nobody's GonNa see those. Somebody asked me what I think of a movie. I don't want to be like I saw nine months ago. I forgot rentals. GotTa stay. They write G. Ready. You don't gotTa get ready folks. Where do you think I have a page Nelson every movie? Where do you think those came from? Just whip them them up today I in the my rating system is literally just gut they ended gizmos by by Panther. Got An eight point three Kansas. It had out of ten tough tough grader. Only there's only a handful movies that are above like nine point five. If you're above nine damage thank you movies in your list. No of course not okay let me just sort by Lemay. Just select all years. I can't wait to hear Rim's Oscar snubs. It was a couple and rhythm sheer got away. More of that he believes should be nominated. Here's an example of a stellar stellar movie to be that of recent years should I gave a really high score Mad Max fury road. Those good nine point seven. Oh that's pretty high. That's that's really..
