Because i think in some ways i've always thought that fame had you know has has very very difficult consequences and i don't think everybody i don't think every family i don't think every person is designed to carry the weight of fame.

Bill Gates, the Virus and the Quest to Vaccinate the World
"Who gates welcome back to the daily social distancing. Show good to see you you lost. Join us on the show. I would say it was about seven months ago and seven months ago. Just like dr fauci. You said you will worried because you felt like the worst was yet to come a lot of people accused you of peddling fear and terror and now it appears that unfortunately you were correct. Here's my question to you. Why does it seem like we've become worse at handling the pandemic you know in europe in the us then we were seven months ago when seven months ago. It was so bad. Well there's a couple of things working against us. I is that with the winter when we're colder we. The virus multiplies more and more indoors. More so that is not a good thing and then there's a certain fatigue. Some of the things people have had to do in terms of staying away from friends. That's tougher i've to say this round. It looks like europe is getting better compliance with the restrictions than the. Us is so they're starting to see a downturn. When you talk about that compliance and when you talk about the downturn is part of the downturn like should we should we be looking at the virus cases or should we be looking at the deaths because i never know which one is more important than usual. Be like a million more people to me. Five million seven million and then you'll see some doctors saying yes but fewer people are dying from because we know how to treat it. How should we be looking at this virus and the fight that we have against. It's well the case is our leading indicator it is true that cases are translating into less doubts for two reasons. One is that the cases are more in the young people Who are less likely to be very sick. And the other is that the quality of treatment including some new drugs like decks method have been proven out so when you do get hospitalized you have a higher chance of survival but were predicted to go back to over two thousand deaths a day in the months ahead so for the next six to eight months news is mostly bad after that the volume of the vaccine will have kicked in and then we'll have a light at the end of the tunnel. Wow i mean the the question is then i think for a lot of people is like. How long tunnel. How bad does that tunnel get. And how do we stop it from being the worst possible tunnel one of the big things. A lot of people are worried about is going to be the transition between joe biden. donald trump. You know you've worked with governments all over the world working on their vaccine distribution working on healthcare around the planet. You know how important it is for one administration to talk to the next when it comes to Handing off on their plans. How much do you think this will actually affect america's response if if there isn't a transition well it's unfortunate that the current administration got tied into a positive narrative that you know we're turning the corner And that you now have this transition will make. The message is a little less clear. You know this is when you'd love to see the best. Cdc people on tv reminding us about social distancing and masks. You know particularly when there is that fatigue out there so leaders at all level. This is a chance to step up even on politicians. You know encouraging friends that hey we. We don't want this additional several hundred thousand deaths you know it'd be adjective. A person who dies know when the vaccine is absolutely on the way and so i think the good news should drive compliance not lacks laxity as somebody who's done work globally around healthcare for so long especially around infectious diseases. What have you found is the key to encouraging or convincing community members to buy into the measures that keep them safe where we had vaccine resistance with polio and they're getting the religious leaders to speak out have them a visibly vaccinating their own children for would like we'd never stopped polio in africa and yet now it's just been certified that we've gone three years without wild polio so activating the trust hierarchy and getting rid of the conspiracy political element to it and just reminding people you know in this case. It's about saving lives in that case it's about kids not being paralyzed people back to that. Very human impact. If we don't behave well. I think it will often come through. It's interesting that you bring up conspiracies because the conspiracy theories about you online have are insane on social media and social media has propagates them in a way where it's like bill gates is trying to create vaccines so that he can cook troll your minds and he wants to vaccinate. Everybody can implant change. People's dna is what they said. You're going to change our dna. So that i don't know we turn into something and then we work for you somewhere. I don't know the full story. I'm still learning it when you see these things first of all. Have you been able to track down where it comes from. And secondly have you. Even i know you think about these things you want to like the biggest thing because i hadn't even thought about like the motivation behind it because i'm always trying to figure out who benefits from a conspiracy theory and i'd love to know if you've put any thought to this at all because of how many people won't get a vaccine because they truly believe conspiracy theories yeah usually when you work on infectious disease like dr fauci and high do your your kind of obscure in a nobody talks about t be or or malaria so here we have this complete turnaround where vaccines and are they. Good for people are now front and center. And there's always been a small group of anti vaccination people and we see this with you know measles vaccine. They've now got a platform and they've sort of joined forces with some political and spiracy abuse and it's so easy to click on particularly when a simple explanation for this pandemic that there is somebody evil behind it. You know as somehow easier than you know the true biology which is actually kind of complicated so we have to make the truth more interesting. And you know we've got a label things with the truth and sadly the naievety about how to make social media work. Well is pretty strong. And that's coincided with the election and the epidemic. I wish i had the answer. But you know it's it's it's out there in big big numbers and hasn't it just keeps growing so when we look at the vaccine. Now i mean that's now the story you know. Now the world is waiting for the vaccine because the vaccine becomes the key that unlocks the doors. You say the lights at the end of the tunnel. The question then is how do people get the vaccine. How effective will the distribution method be and how difficult is will the vaccine short supply. The good news is that there's four other vaccines that are likely to get approved fairly quickly as well. The fact that pfizer worked so well makes us optimistic. That astrazeneca johnson and johnson vacs which those are much cheaper easier to scale and don't require that cold chain so we'll have a lot of scenes and we need to prioritize people. At risk elder people people working nursing homes and each country Will have to decide okay. Who goes first. That's still a little bit confused in the us but hopefully we'll get that straightened out very very soon because the vaccine is likely to be shipped a lot in the month of december as you said anti vaccine community has only grown over time. I think the us is now the biggest hub of anti vexes in the world it started as a fringe thing with measles now with corona it is fully fledged and because of politics it's been amplified so now you'll have some people who on the liberal side saying i don't trust that vaccine it was made under trump and then you'll have other people saying like i don't trust that vaccine that came from joe biden and the and the democrats trying to brainwash. It's a lot of people may not want to take the vaccine which may now go against everything we've worked toward. So how do you begin convincing people that the vaccine is safe like in the midst of this political crisis. Well it's clear that the fda through the professional staff. They're all the things that are supposed to do likewise pfizer. There's even an external committee that will weigh in just to make absolutely sure that the the political desire to get this quickly did not in fact the efficacy and safety review and i feel very confident because the people involved are are really doing their job. Well we don't need everyone to take the vaccine. Society will have to decide if there's some jobs like going to a nursing home in taking care of somebody's grandparents whether that person you know how strongly you encourage them to have a vaccine so they're not spreading seeing but with this level of efficacy if we can get to seventy five percent dosed then you'll block the spread of the disease with measles you'd have to get to like ninety five percent because it's even more infectious but the good news here is that we just need that maturity and i think as people see people taking the vaccine and they see that The side effects of any are very very rare. That confidence will build and that will be good for society because when you take the vaccine you're helping to protect other people.
"rashida jones" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"The daily show she'll distancing show that they ll social distancing show or because the daily show social distancing in the United States of America. You Know I. can call it anything now I can name it. What we can call it can even be like welcome to the Rashida Jones daily showed social distancing show shows up distance social show. So showed social on the shore. Welcome to either way. Welcome to the show. Thank you I'm surprised you even have time to do this to be honest. You are easily one of the most active people I've ever come across in my life. It'll be like I turn on. Netflix over she the Jones is in black af I'm like, oh, that's cool over. She does also going to be directing episodes of black and like wait she's directing isn't she directing other things sometimes director she's directing like with its ads movies or other TV shows and it's like, oh, she's writing other. So for somebody like you who's always doing something, how have you handled doing so much nothing during the pandemic. Well, the weird thing about me is all though I, I like to do things. It's not like I have to be with other people and and in fact, I sort of prefer being with less people not I'm not like A. An extrovert I might pose as an extrovert sometimes I really like time alone. So I miss dancing with my friends I have to say I missed like -cational like just like an epic night out but you know most nights are big. They're just like weird perfunctory social. Sometimes? Work. Relating. I'm happy to eliminate that level of going out. You know just missed like hugging my friends and dancing mainly I think one of the things that people have always loved about you the roles that you play. It always feels like there's a little bit of Rashida in them but you've got you've got you've got a range of characters and a range of personalities, but one thing. People have always loved about you and your repertoire is comedy. You know with it was parks and recreation or whether it was like any tribeca it's like you know you've always you've always had that charisma in the world of comedy your natural. That's that's what you are. You've got a new movie coming out now with Bill Murray, one of the comedy legends of all time and. It's interesting because in this movie, you cling more of a strict rule. Was that easier or harder for you especially when you're in scenes with Bill Murray. Will I do tend to play the straight roll like that's been that has been my cross to bear for better for worse for the past you know fifteen years in my career I get to be the kind of sane thoughtful pragmatic friend or wife or girlfriend or daughter. Now of like the kind of Zany person you know I'm I'm the voice of. But you know I do feel like there's a certain skill set to that. But this is yeah, this is a very, very pared-down version of the straight man because I you know bill plays my father who assists larger than life very charismatic figure who has a lot of opinions about men and women and relationships, monogamy insects sex, and I just listen I just take it in I listen and sometimes disagree with him but it's it's no more than like an eye roll or ahead nod but it's great. I mean who doesn't want to sit and listen to. Bill Murray theorize day I mean that's just a joy as a human being let alone after it's a it's a it's a premises while I I love the idea of this daughter and father who on this journey to try and catch the husband who they believe is cheating. It's an interesting way to connect like it's an interesting bond to form between a daughter and her father. What did you? What did you? What did you like about the project I love Sophia coca-cola and? I just think she's such a force. She said she such a unique aesthetic and perspective is filmmaker and I've always wanted to work with her and have worked with our little bit. So anything that she's doing I'm interested in but you know I don't see movies like this very often you don't see movies about adult women and their authors like that's just a like a weirdly. Unexplored territory I just love this idea of like you know that that bond and be being a daddy's girl myself. Exploring like how bond can sometimes. Be a bit hindrance in terms of like your personal development like I. Think this character has to learn how to not listen to her dad after years of respecting him and listening to him she's got to be like you know what I got it from here. It's my life. So and I love that because I've never seen that before. A melting we don't see often anymore is human beings. socializing like crazy in New York City and I'm not gonNA like it was triggering for me. I, feel like you should put a warning before the movie because I I started watching it. I was like, Oh, on the rocks, this is going to be fantastic Bill Murray Rashida Jones. Here we go. This is fun and then all I saw was New York pre pandemic, and for the first like twenty minutes of the movie I'm like, why are these people hugging each other? Why are people? What are these people doing of the year and when you watch it back now? It's a different world. It's a different world i. Watch anything to touchy. Where's your mask I mean Washer Especially, with this be because we filmed right before you probably couldn't really film anymore we finish in July deals instantly nostalgic. We're just kind of like didn't know how carefree we were actually actually being by like traipsing the streets of New York City. we yet is strange to watch and there was a couple of things actually that we had to talk about afterwards because. Bill had this whole thing about people wash their hands too much and immediately fell dated were you know we just couldn't say that anymore you know rest new era so yes weird. It's very strange. Before I let you go, there is one thing I have been meaning to ask you for a very long time and I just haven't had the opportunity. It is about an episode of Black Mirror that you wrote. Nosedive. And now I know lot of people don't know episodes by the title, but it was an episode about a woman who lived in society based around people judging other people and determining their successful failure in life I remember watching it going ha of all the blackmore episodes. This one is the least realistic I enjoyed it but I was like this is the least realistic. I was like this won't happen I think it's more likely that you're going have the robot B.'s killing. The seems a little bit crazy to me and then Social. Media really kicked into gear, and now we do live in a world where you one tweets away from your career being taken away you one moment away on facebook from your family canceling it's become so extreme. Did. You prophesied this based on things you were seeing or did you just think to yourself? This would be crazy and then it happened. Well I can't take. Any credit for that because Charlie Brooker who created black near is an island of genius and I use that word lightly. So he really come I mean he's he's the hub of all of these. Horrible. But. Very realistic prophecies because so much of what he's written about has come true sadly. But I did you know I I begged him to work on the show and he brought this idea to me and Mike Mike sure who critic parks recreation and the good place and I I asked my read it with with me and the truth is I relate to the so much and felt like I could bring some perspective to this because somebody who lives a little bit in the public eye you sort of are in that world anyway I mean you are ending on somebody.

I think it's when he was saw the movie Conan, the barbarian. Nineteen eighty that he said, hey, that works and I think at the at the time I, was thirteen. Yeah. Have a name was that long I didn't have a name I'm sorry. What did everyone call you? They called me Baby O'Brien oh, baby O'Brien and they called me that up until I think I was thirty three. I did get a name fairly quickly took my data a little while, but he came up with the name but I sympathize with this woman. Yeah. She found out what I already knew, which is the Irish we go for quantity over quality right? Let's just have a lot of kids. One of them do something. Okay. That's that's the idea who cares what their name is. Yeah you know yeah. I mean your family especially if you don't have that much of a difference between siblings no, I'm wise I'm born. I think. Five months after my brother Luc. Oh, which we've we've scientists came and talked to my parents and it was it was in the paper. It was in the local paper. We're we're spaced about five months apart no one understood it. Yeah. That's like Kangaroos can have a baby being birth but one like warming up in the oven. Yes. Like if assembly line no, it's true. It's how they make the burgers at any fast food restaurants you. You have to have one warming on the conveyor belt while another others finished cooking. So yeah. Biological, sense. This is true. I I, I'm not even this is not a joke. Oh, it's not a joke. Phrase scientists from around the world visited my parents and said, you're having these children five months apart. Luke was almost done when I was being formed. and. He was telling me in the womb. Don't touch my stuff. He was saying. You know that stuff over there is mine and that's my poster and. Don't touch it and I couldn't wait for him to move out. Yeah, and then. I to have. Got To have a couple of months on my own in there. Once he was gone. So I took down East coasters because he was into star. Trek. And I was into star wars so. Anyway, this is very strange and disturbing riff. But it's true. It's really weird. All true. All six children in my family were born in a three year period. My Gosh true story we were all born in a three year period and no one understands how it happened. Sharing an apartment thickly. Download came in it was the original friends. Was the original friends there was six of us and we were all in one apartment and people were wondering. How. Could they afford that womb in New York City yeah. It's that's stupid. I took it too far. You took him way too far. Doors of funny, knoller Dame. Yeah. I, know we're talking about names. Yeah I. do think that your parents naming you Conan it's almost as if they knew you were gonNA be famous and they're like less name this one something different or I will I was the only one that had a like sort of copper red hair.

"No. I I stopped. Writing this down. It's a daily practice practice. I think having children does help a lot. Yeah. Because then you start to think wait a minute if anyone talked to my son or my daughter the way, I just talk to myself I would kill this. Find US killing stick and I'd kill them. But and I think it's one of the reasons why unfortunately. You're adept at both acting, but then also writing because I think the writers mind is hyper self critical. It's weird because it's the kind of thing you don't want to get rid of altogether because it is. No it is. Can't how you right and it is how you create but like, can you control it? You only are critical with yourself. When you need to be not control me, I did want to say that. I never questioned why it'd be hard on myself but knowing you and then hearing you say that you're have have not always been nice to yourself and that you've been really hard on yourself I think. But you're. GonNa, why would you do that? It's so weird disconnect. You know what I mean. You're just young I don't see why you would ever do that in a million years I'm I I'm sure that everyone listening and you have so many fans feel the same way but that's how it is and people should know that's just how it is. I think I think loneliness is is the human condition right? Baseline human condition you come here lung you leave alone you have to figure out how to fill your time and also try to find joy through that but those are all optional thing. The bottom line is it's it's hard to be alive. Obviously I won the lottery in so many ways and I would never not acknowledged the privilege of that. But being being stuck in your own head in your emotions can sometimes be a chaotic place that nobody else would ever ever understand right and so I that's why I try my best to also not judge you know what there's a great I think it's an expression. Like don't compare your insides somebody else's outside because it's just not a fair comparison. You just don't know how people feel in their own bodies ever. So that to me is just a tool to remain empathetic towards other vassal including myself and we do live in a culture of envy and hey she's in movies and on television and gets to write and produce, and so her life is amazing and they don't understand that. It's complicated. My life is amazing, but sometimes, I can't feel that. A lot of people feel that way. I saw that move you show show kids movie that documentary about Oh it's very good. It's made by Alex Winter? Outdoor. He's now documentarian it's really good and he talks to a lot of kids who grew up famous Wil Wheaton Jovanovich Mara what's her name? Mara Wilson who played with Tilda? And they talk about the experience of you know it's so pronounced when you're a kid like they're they're young and they're talented and their famous and everybody loves them and that's when your kid but not one of them says I like I wish I all of them wanted to change it. All of them. I have long maintained that fame and attention in adulation is the most powerful drug in the world is more powerful than any other drug. Any pharmaceutical company has come up with and that air ago no child should be famous. It should just did almost shouldn't be allowed. It should be like a lun law because you would not give. A five year old a powerful opioid you just would or heroin you would never do it I think it's heartbreaking. This same could be said for social media not to. White Wire, kids allowed to just partake in this thing that's literally designed to get them addicted. Well, you did that amazing Black Mirror episode nosedive that you co wrote with Mike sure and I thought that every if you haven't seen that episode of Black Mirror. Check it out nosedive with bryce Dallas Howard. It is fantastic and I think it is one of the best. Yes. You are slight. There's like a slight exaggeration, which is I think one of the things you're is so good at, but you guys took social media and you took it to not really that much further than where we are right now. So it not maybe fifteen years into the future or maybe five and you saw how completely obliterating it is to a human identity. Because it changes your behavior because you're now interacting I mean, this is sort of like a quote from Gerin linear a great. He's just a great thinker on the subject. He's he's speak slot the social dilemma, but but you know you're now taking this third party that's controlling in changing and manipulating interfering with the behavior between two people just like that episode is about that, which is like you will change your behavior based on the consequences of behavior as told to you by the. Will I love that episode and had no idea did not know that you'd go written it and then. Perform yes and then I heard there was still a little jealousy and envy when I heard that you had been involved and. So anyway, we'll discuss that at another time. You really hurt I'm so sorry well. I don't like being outdone left and right But that's what we've got going here. I guess you do it all and I do one thing. She says this took a turn. Let's wrap up what we've learned from Rashida Jones, which is no child should be famous. We, must love ourselves watch out for social media. It alls everything in moderation out white claw is the drink that you should be looking for kids and feels like the strangest wrap up of my personality. Ever, but I'll take for today. This is just for today. Can we say this just for today as for and? Sits creepy if a man rubs a whole into his breast pocket.

"Said. And Zero. Vitamin. He said Almost got that role the four-year-old because he'd had hurt his dad's say it's so much while they were watching movies. It could have been made if I had a parrot that lived with me, it would always be saying he's not funny. Fuss about him. Eric. I think I've aged, but I do. I think actors and parts are destined for each other. You know that out obviously lost in translation like that was a moment and Mike Conic moment and it could have only ever been scarlet bill. You know what's so great. So now you're working with Bill Murray and I can't even imagine I again I do not have your skill set I am not an actor but I think If I was in a scene with Bill Murray I'd keep stepping outside my body and saying, oh, that's so cool. I'm in a scene with Bill Murray like this is it's surreal and confusing as a as a long time admire of his but you know the good news was we'd worked together before. So it wasn't like if I was just stepping out I probably would have been. Because it is a lot. It's a lot to digest, but we are friends and we've worked together before and. Not For this many days in a row ever. But I was in the Bill Murray Christmas special that Sophia directed your bill did an episode of my show. Angie TRIBECA. So we had a little bit of experience on camera but yeah no, it was completely and utterly nerve wracking. He's also. I know him and I don't know if he changes into a different person I've always known him in this comedy context. He's always been very nice to me and very bill. Murray you know like I do but I don't know if you're working with him in an acting situation if he changes in any way or if he's still Bill Murray, do you know what I'm saying he's do I do I mean he is you know he's There's something about him. He's just mysterious. He is sort of an island of a person but as an actor, he's very available and present and and listens, and also does so many beautiful things without doing anything like he just is has a very, very fine tuned instrument going on, they're not just with comedy, but with with all demotion you know but yeah, there is something it's always going to be like the the minute we stopped rolling he's. Like Bill Murray and then we're on the street and everybody wants to hang out with everybody wants to have an experience with him and I, don't think that will ever change but I do feel like I probably know him pretty well, we spent a lot of time together and I know pretty well and I do I really adore him as as a human being I was at a party years ago when my daughter was the first time we my wife and I, went to a party after our daughter was born and she was a couple of months old but we just went to this party because we thought we can do it and will bring the baby and it was like a New Year's Party and Bill Murray was at this party and I was holding my daughter who is just a couple of months old and rocking her and he went none on on on. That's not how you do it. That's not a Adila. This is how you do it online. I'll never forget that he had a drink in his hand like a gin and tonic and he put it in the breast pocket of his jacket he jammed a gin and tonic into the. Tumbler glass into the vest like the breast nipple pocket of his sports jacket. Thank you I'm sorry I, call it the nipple bacchus. 'cause I cut a little hole in there so I can put my finger and rub my nipple. And people think I'm trying to get the lint out. So don't judge me. Rashida Jones if I want to rub my nibble through.

"Ten years. that. I shouldn't even be talking about being Louis. Because I. So can't relate by can relate to is as a kid I tried a bunch of things and for a while I thought I'm not going to be in show business I just have to be a good student that's what I have to be because there's no way. I'm ever going to be in show business and then I found out that your trajectory was kind of the same in some ways very much. So I, mean, I think probably what I was doing that you weren't doing I was rebelling against my family because I was like Oh everybody's in show business. So I'm not going to do that because I'm GonNa do something dangerous like be a lawyer I'll show. I'm going to be a tax attorney. Donald show them. My. Relatives that was my way of rebelling was like deciding of is going to be an academic. And a really good student in you know. Just, like a way to individual it. So yeah, I had the same thing as you were I was like I'm not. I'm not going to be in show business because I also at the time I thought like show business is flighty it's it's it doesn't require anything but like the need to be looked at the scene you know and I think once I got over VAT like my the reason I did it was I don't think it was because I wanted to be a maybe it was I don't know I'm not going to psychoanalyze because I wanted to be accepted. Or, seen or said yes to. But once I realized there was something else to in there was like a bit of a craft and a science to it. I found it interesting but I think I did you like make it my own I because I was so I was so steeped in it growing up you know no, it almost feels like a comedy sketch where your mother and father both very famous accomplished people who are entertainers and then you get you know get accepted to Yale.

'Toy Story 4' is a Masterpiece. Is It in Pixar's Top 5?
"You. I'm Shawn fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big Pixar podcast. They conversation show about Toy Story, four and all sorts of childish things. I'm joined today by apparent at the ringer rob heart villa. Hello rub. Hello. How's it going? It's going very well. And I appreciate you being here. You know, some of my frequent co host on the show among them, amended Dobbins, and Chris Ryan are, just straight up assholes about animated movies, and I noticed that I need to have people on to talk about important animated films. And I think even before you were a parent, you would have been a thoughtful and sophisticated guest for this episode, but you are a father and so you are happenings moves to Pixar in, in deep way in recent years. Is that fair to say that's very fair to say very complicated relationship with these movies at this point? But yes, yes, so we'll talk about that a bit on this show. I think we'll start the show though by talking about the new Pixar movie, which is, of course, Toy Story four, I think, when Pixar I started about twenty or so years ago, I never would have guessed that. That there would have been a fourth installment of any of these movies, in fact when they started. They seemed like a new version of a kind of storytelling that didn't necessitate sequels if you look on the ring dot com right now you can read a really interesting column by miles Surrey about the state of Pixar and their decision to make a series of sequels over the last ten years, and what that means for their, their brand, and what it means for their business and what it means for their creativity. And in some ways, I think it's been really threatened over the last few years, you know, we were just talking before we started recording about the infamous cars, three, which I would say is not one of the more legendary. In the Pixar verse. But Toy Story four, I thought was quite wonderful. And I thought it hearkens back to what makes a lot of these films. Great and also push them forward a little bit, rob. How did you receive toys story for what did you make in the movie, I saw last night with my sons who are eight and five and sort of Iraq is sort of preview screening. And I my kids laughed more laughed, louder just more obnoxiously than at any movie. I think that I've ever taken them to know. So I by by that measure, I mean it was a huge success. And I thought it was wonderful, and I thought it push things forward, but also sort of hold back on that sort of classic Pixar idea that like the kids are delighted, and the parents are total emotional wrecks. You know what I'm saying? Like I it's sort of an impressive mass magic trick that these movies can do. And I think especially of inside out, you know, which was, my, I think I've written about this on the side a couple times now. But like my son walk. Out of inside out. He was five at the time and he thought anger was funny, and I was just crying mess, you know, because I just watched I just watch goofball island, which is like the visual manifestation of like a joyful kid becoming a sullen teenager, like depicted, on, like a giant theater screen, and it was just the most crushing experience like the way those movies these movies are designed to work on those two levels, and they sort of drive, the parents to the toy store, but also to therapy, like, I, I feel like this one was sort of uncomplicated, Katie just funny and delightful and I had it seriousness and had like themes that parents, especially it would pick up on. But like it wasn't working that dichotomy where it was sort of, like designed to upset me personally, you know what I'm saying? Like I feel like they can play with that a little bit. But they don't have to hammer at it all the time in every movie that they put out, you know, I could just enjoy my kids, enjoying this one, a lot more than I feel like the last. Several Pixar movies. Yeah. I agree with that. I do think though, there is this entire school of almost academic sought around Pixar movies. And if you want to, if you want to experience Toy Story four as an exegesis on creationism and identity and a cartesian analysis of society, you probably could do that. I absolutely. Yeah. And I think that is that, that whole divide is fascinating to me the way that you've underlying basically the pure kid enjoyment of something, and the way that adults are entertained, and even moved by some of their films. I feel like can you give me a little bit of a sense of as a parent? What it's like to see a lot of movies like this, not just Pixar movies, but animated movies or what's on TV or what streaming for your kids and what the balance is between this is secretly for parents. And this is actually just dumb entertainment for kids, so that they don't like break things in the kitchen. Yeah. I mean, I feel like I've seen every type of movie along that spectrum, you know, and I haven't hated any. Movie that I think I've taken my kids to even like down to, like rock dog or whatever, you know, like I it's the LEGO movies are trying to be adult and trying to be knowing and it feels like they are specifically pitched for the adults in a way that, like a lot of the jokes are going right over the kids heads, like I don't dislike those movies, but I think that the LEGO movies are a little too cute about that. You know, I've seen plenty of things like, you know, the emoji movie or the trolls movie or whatever. Which are, you know, have theoretically adult jokes, but aren't trying to work that duality certainly the way that Pixar movies. Are you think about four key who like the new protagonist are like the new cool character here in Toy Story, four four key spends the movie like having an identity crisis like ease? He's a new toy but he thinks he's trash. And like he wants to be trash like he's literally, a spark with pipe cleaner arms, and he spends the whole first thirty minutes of the movie is going trash trash. And like I think that's really profound. And my son just really loves the way that four key keep saying, trash trash, like he did it. My son did it all the way home whole drive home like. And it's that's a cool. Little thing, that's you know, the different levels, and you can appreciate it on without it having to be this comedy versus tragedy divide. You know, it's sort of typifies, you know, again, like inside out, or even like the last toys story movie, Toy Story, three ends, of course, with, like, the scene, where they're all heading down into the incinerator, and they all sort of somberly, join hands and they're sort of resigned to the fact that they're all gonna die like all these little toys, and it's you know, I'm sort of a crying rack, and like my sons are sort of mildly disturbed, but they figure everything is going to be okay. And it is, but, like there's a moment of like pure pesos on that level in this movie, and I was, frankly, kind of relieves like the idea that I have to walk into every Pixar movie like braced dad, this huge sort of existential breakdown, you know, as my kids, just enjoy themselves like at felt like we pulled back on that. A little bit. And I was grateful for that. I agree with you. It's it did feel bit like an episodic adventure, which wasn't a bad Yang. I think sometimes you can get a movie like that, where the stakes have been lowered from the previous film, and you're like, well nigh. You're just wasting my time. But inevitably when it's a movie about anthropomorphized toys, somehow, it's nice to just have something that is a little bit more fun. I mean you mentioned Toy Story three which, you know, sort of ends with that transition from Andy to Bonnie, and then inevitably Bonnie becomes the, the young child, who is the owner of all these toys. And so were reintroduced to a world that features some of Bonnie's toys, and then the toys from the classical Toy Story story, and then four he comes along on the first day school. I, I did feel in that sort of first day of school moment that I was getting some of those inside out vibes that you're talking about where it's sort of, like they have managed to metastasized the most vulnerable feeling that you can have in your life. That that's scary trust. They of school where like I don't know anybody and everybody hates me. And I'm afraid and I miss everything. Is comfortable around me and they zero in on it, and they show it to you through the eyes of a little kid. And you immediately feel a recognition. That is a storytelling power. That is often overstated about Pixar allow me to overstate at wants more like it's amazing how they manage to locate and isolate those feelings and show them to you on screen, and make you relate to them like I am consistently blown away by that. There's another one at the end, when there's the kid lost at the fair, you know, she's just sort of there's a little girl, and she's crammed between, you know, to food carts or whatever, and she's crying and like, yeah, it's the exact same feeling and I yeah, there's a conversation also I think it's between Woody and four key. And like I think what he says, like, you know, these kids like you watch them grow up and become a person. And then they leave, you know, they'll do things you'll never see like the whole point of these movies is that the toys realized that one day, they'll be abandoned. You know, one day, they'll fall out a favor and one day, the kids will run off without them and won't need them anymore. That's, that's not even subtexts. Like that's just that's exa-. Exactly how parents feel watching these movies, you know, I think that's always there. And it is really striking. You know, I mean, this is possibly the best movie I've ever seen with the numeral four in it. You know what I'm saying? As you as you said, like I understand sort of the dismay, or at least a concern that Pixar has become by and large, like a sequel factory, you know, but I I I didn't dislike incredible to at all. But like I felt like certainly this was a better sequel than any of the other sequels that we've had this year. Obviously, you've been talking about how terrible and how sort of lifeless, they are like this is just a one eighty from that. Yeah. They staved it off. It's, it's a pretty impressive single-handed job in a in a friend summer from hell for this movie to come along and, and gay ever. So briefly, I think I think pause things one thing, that's notable too, is, you know, we're talking about the human emotion that they're able to imbue into these films and into these characters in the movies directed by Josh Cooley, who is. Essentially a first time Pixar director, though. He's worked for the company for a while and the screenplay has two people credited, but the story has two four six eight people credited and it's a complicated list of people. I'm going to read it to you really quickly story by John Lasseter Rashida Jones will McCormack Josh Cooley. Valerie LaPointe, Martin Hines, Stephanie, fulsome, and Andrew Stanton. Now, the last two people are the official authors of the screenplay famously when this movie came together, Rashida Jones and will McCormack her writing partner were brought on board to write it, and they eventually left the project because they felt like they were not as open minded about new voices, particularly a woman of color talking about the way to tell these stories for Pixar Pixar, very famously has had some fraught history with, with John Lasseter, one of its co founders chief imagine ear for a number of years due to sexual misconduct allegations. And the company has I, I would say affectively weathered the. Storm, whatever that can mean an has moved on from Lassiter, who I believe is most recently appointed to a position on inside of sky dance, and they're animated division of paramount, but it's so strange to have an event like that happening
