"rees" Discussed on The Flop House Podcast
"There's all the staff the house staff. and the mystery kind of turns on on these. Unspoken relationships between those two populations. It really kind of hits that sweet spot. Of Cozy mystery and then gritty kind of realistic. Very not cynical, but very frank about the clap, the class distinctions. that. Maybe it's the subtext of something grittier like Colombo or something right? it's just it's. It's so good I'm sure I'm sure your listeners love movies and they've already seen it, but it's interesting to think about in the context of types of mysteries and types of detective. Who Done it's? What's weird about the flop house podcast is that most of their listeners hate movies have never watched one. Of. The hosts. Last movie you guys saw what's the last movie? You've fell a saw in a movie theater before Corona Virus? Oh good question. Her boy, cat, tell you exactly, but I have no birds of Prey Oh wait now I saw cats a second time. Yeah, yeah!

Has the theater was once time in Hollywood? God when they remotely set manually, cats was my last movie theater, too. I. Should feel bad. That was the last movie I saw in theater, but it was exactly the right movie for me to see in the theater lasts because it was such a such a positive experience.

Exclusively When you take me out of the nightclub I'm a lamb, but you put me back in their ally. Is Acting aggressively? Roar I. I have to say about Stewart be I. Mean I don't know whether it's just because he's a bartender is a skill is learned, or whether it's just who he is as a person. I've never seen someone so skillful at de escalating. Direction as Stewart. It's weird when I first started bartending, I came straight from. Running Hobby stores where I dealt mainly with teenage boys, who who who were not particularly good at dealing with social situations, so when I first started talking to drunk guys I treated them like they were nerdy teenage going yeah, that that did not go well. I'm GONNA fuck with. These is a little bit right, not a good idea because see the problem is when you're. You know a big tall, handsome guy who always sounds sarcastic. That's the absolute first person. A drunk person wants to punch. Yeah. Yeah I think I think David Rees. You've met your match Stuart Wellington Doll.

Wings Day New York Times Cross. See, that's the thing. You know I suffer for being you know Tolan handsome, but at least I'm also very stupid. Love about Stewart is he's unabashed at calling I will say I think I wanNA start writing I want to start writing series. Of Detective Novels Starring Stu Wellington. First of all Washington's a great detective named Yeah. It's pretty sick name. It's pretty good. Yeah, say we're sites all. Like tall, tall and handsome but stupid. But the escalator by at heart. and He. On a ignore the bartender part. He is working at a hobby store. And so on and solving crimes out of the hobby store. That's a cozy mystery for me Oh. The Hobby store thing not great you can have. Yeah like models, and there could be a model of a house or something, and that that ties into the solution of the mystery or controlled car that you have to write us or glue. You know you know about all these. Resins, and stuff. Little tiny Bush. They used to pay their DNA whole Mr Figurines now. One of them went missing or something. You know what I mean like. Gary Guy Acts like like Gary Guy the monster manual. that. Students mistaken you wrote a monograph on the nineteen different kinds of pewter ORCs. I. Did yeah I did I. Don't like to bring it up on the PODCASTS. You're like Sherlock Holmes written a monograph for everything that comes up. Homicides or whatever the Yeah. The the every episode of Hobby Store Homicides was. Confession, a confession that I managed to get without any attempt to act without knowing there was a mystery. Canceled, the best thing is that your catchphrases is something like solving crimes isn't my job. It's just a hobby. Running the hobby store is my job. Play in that space between avocation and. When Hamas are your work? Life becomes a hobby. Sure, yeah. You can ride a hobby horse. When solving mysteries your hobby, you never work a day in your life. Do So. That'd be good. Yeah. One hundred percent of the mysteries. You don't solve way. That's true, too. That's true. Mystery. There's no. Hobby mystery series or a hockey mystery series. I mean if Kevin Smith's producing.

Floyd, Brianna, Taylor Ahmad Aubrey Tamir, Rice Rees Gordon, Sandra Blan- and unfortunately the list can keep going and going and going, but we want to keep those names out. There want to keep this conversation going so people stay informed. And we don't want this to be got to be forgotten, so we're back in the situation again so Yes, like I said blogger owners committed to doing that and I am not just here by myself. I have a contassot. Guests with me here today to keep this conversation going. I am talking about. Pull a surprise and Emmy Award winning journalist. Tremaine, Lee. He is also MB. Correspondent in host of the into America podcast, so I am so glad to have him here with me today. They Ryan thank you so much revenue neutral appreciative. I WANNA. Start off this. This question was kinda going throughout. My might assume I knew I was GONNA. I was excited about this because I wanna Kinda. Give the listeners a different perspective that we don't get all the time with all this coverage of the protests and everything that's going on and not to say that you speak for all of news broadcasting. and I'm in production that worlds often find myself in this conversation as well. This is why this question is so important to me. But how do you deal with the idea of people asking why the media is covering the protests way their covenant, or you know certain situations. You find yourself in a maybe you don't have a choice of what the story is recovering that day. What's it? It depends I think the one thing that we do have choice over one one space did I control is how I centered the narrative. That I'm speaking to reporting on recovering so sometimes. The critique of the media is absolutely correct, because the media is not like any other institution. America, that's been a touched in racism, touched in bias touching all those things, so it's incumbent upon us working inside media. To make sure flicking the truest narrative possible, and sometimes that begins with our own experience in our own. To understand the language that's being spoken these communities right so so we're not relying on trucks and stereotypes ideally. We're we're connecting to the people in a different way and so I don't pay much mind to the critiques necessarily except for some of correct That's when we have to make sure that we are redoubling our efforts but I know from from. You know I don't I. Don't get many of those critiques because you know. I try to keep it as as true as possible I. Mean That's what I've done my entire career. So you know sometimes they're correct. Sometimes, they're not sometimes people. Are just shouting into the ether, your social media just right the shouting right, but I think the good thing is that the proof is always in the so that people can consume the information. The best dress with their concerns are. Right and speaking of getting out there and speaking the truth into America a fairly new podcast. She started up. Can you tell me about how that started and wise that important to you? Into America at this point I think we're on episode Twenty Six maybe twenty seven in the the whole idea behind into Americans really get outside of our bubbles in really go out into America. In an approach politics policy in a different conway. Along and I worked for MSNBC PROUDLY SO but you know the twenty four hour news cycle. It's kind of like a horse. Race Times. If you're not careful the way we. The Lens from which review politics? It's also who's up now. WHO's fallen behind? You know it's daily drama as opposed to the way politics policy actually impact the lives of everyday people, and so the goal of into America was to do just that. Go out into America. And speak directly to people about their concerns, their needs but also how the backdrop of policy is really impacting them. You know and I really do believe that is the kind of thing. I worked my entire life trying to trying to do right always out there with the people and trying to tell the people's story. Our care deeply about the most vulnerable among US marginalized community, most certainly a black folks in this country, but also the poor any race the marginalized anyways so into America. We've been trying to. Obviously it's shifted a bit through. I Kobe nineteen right so now we're. Quest heard in with the engaged with how people are You know the fallout from Kobe nineteen whether it's the the emotional stuff with his health, related impact was the economic impact and now in. This Arab uprising rebellion in protests. We've shifted again to to address in all of the concerns around systemic racism the the the initial ideals of white supremacy that in so many ways to guide this country. The protests respect all of those things, so that's a long answer, but that is into America.

But yeah it's weird and it feels much more dystopia than anything else I've ever experienced does have a dystopia feel. I do think there's going to be a lot. Lots of folks who are inching closer to that tristate killing spree. That's in all of us. Yeah or most of us. Yeah Mine's actually Quadra State quattro state. Yeah I'm a bit more of a kind of a high achiever in a larger sense. Look you know. I'm settling into the routine of You know locking myself in house in just single-mindedly thinking about the the biggest news story in the world which is the felt trapped obviously coming next week. Yes income having Process that so I'm not going to quiz. You drafted this week. Because next week is the big ones so A lot of stuff going on with the CRONULLA areas with politics in we got a really interesting gets an old friend of mine who's Comedian cartoonist depan castor. A Pencil sharpener. Yes and you might notice. I actually have a pencil David Rees Pencil on my wall here loud a certificate of sharpening. Wow that's really cool. Yeah so David Reese is one of the few people. He is one of the most talented people I know. Very Funny Guy in a Lotta realms and he's got a podcast. It's very apropos to what we talk about in the show. It's a it's an election gambling site Collection profit makers. We're going to talk to him about the raise in his thoughts on that and he has an interesting. Take that I actually share that. We're we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA get into so but let's start with the news for food. Groups Republicans Suck Democrat. Doug is not weird. Isn't that horrible for main categories of news and we're starting Democrats suck which is me this week. That is correct. Lot of a lot of stuff always with Democrats suck. But I'M GONNA I'M GONNA pick one a little close to home and I'm going to start with a little a little shot at at our own a rolling stone for its Andrew. Cuomo cover Dan. Do we have that graphic an Italian minstrel on like seriously. We really have to do this rolling stone. I mean what's next? You know Lloyd blankfein doing God's work our that. Look what would that look like it would be? I think he'd have Lloyd Lloyd. Little backlit looking down at the world or something exactly or or or or what the Atlas Alley. Ira Lloyd as Atlas would be gone. I mean come on. Andrew Cuomo is just one of the biggest Douche wads and politics a complete jackass and we got to put him on the cover. I'm sorry could vary. Dramatically quit no. I don't think it's necessary but can you get him to come on the show. Now can you be like hi. Just doing the follow up to that photo. Shoot we did with you. I'd be afraid to ask that fucking crazy family and in fact this is a good segue into the next part of my Democrats suck portion. I mean who knows what you might ask politely. Would you like to come on the PODCASTS and You know end up being choked to death or something like that As we now know because Chris Cuomo got in yet another incident the other brother who faded out yet who raided out and I think we can we can inject here post factum the Freida video just a piece of People don't remember what happened there but Chris Cuomo the lesser brother the bag who's on CNN. He got an another incident where a sixty five year old a longtime resident of Southampton was riding by the property. Where Chris Cuomo apparently lives any saw cuomo congregating with his wife and three children or three people. I mean he wasn't exactly sure who it was and the guy asked you know. Cuomo what he was doing since he's supposed to be quarantining. Khurana positive corona positive and the quote from the story in The New York Post. According to this fellow calls himself David he said who the hell are you? I can do what I want. In the in the quote was he ranted screaming. I'll find out who you are and the guy said. Your brother is the corona virus czar. You're not even following his his rules and he just began to boil. Maury said this is not the end of this. You'll deal with this later. we will meet again if that's not a threat. I don't know what it is. That's the that's the report in The New York Post and I wouldn't necessarily give credence to the story except Cuomo Kinda Kinda sort confirmed it in an interview. That he gave about were among other things he he sort of complained about about the difficulties of the life. You leads in the spiritual emptiness of it and he spoke about this incident. Dan pitcher that audio. Want some Jack Ass loser. Fat.

Who Is Isaac Levido?
"At the end of this month. The United Kingdom will leave the European Union and in so doing fulfill the key election pledge of conservative prime minister. Boris Johnson. To you get brexit done. We have followed that. He's paralyzed blocked. Dinner Lean capable of functioning as Anaconda that swallowed the neither moving one way on the other. He's lean except of course that brexit will not get done on January thirty first Brexit exit will not get close to done on January thirty first if and when Brexit can truly be said to have got done it will be still further pointless tedious Diaz wasted years from now but none of this matters to the Prime Minister and party. Who promised to do it? What does matter at least to them is that they won a thumping majority in last month's general election for that the Tories Oak considerable thanks and have doubtless already paid considerable? Money to a rashly officially beaded thirty something from Port Macquarie New South Wales who served as the Party's campaign director. His name is Isaac Lovato. It is. It's always hard to know how much credit to extend to such figures. Strategists spin-doctors string-pullers special advisers. It seems reasonable to assume the people capable of subtly manipulating public opinion in favor of their paymasters Also able to cunningly inflate their own reputation for being able to do so but there is little doubt that Levino presently basks in the warmest regard of the recently returned conservatives Dominic Cummings Boris orest Johnson's senior adviser and a man not known for self deprecation in much. The same way that circles are not known for being square has described Libido As a hundred times better at running campaigns than me so who exactly is is a collado and how did he get here. La Vida learned his trade from his fellow. Australian Lynton Crosby a veteran political strategist. Who has made something of a speciality of coordinating somewhat belligerent and populist campaigns for parties wrightwood of center in Australia and elsewhere though crosby's record in the UK is not one of unalloyed success excess? He did twice help. Boris Johnson get elected mayor of London no small accomplishment in a city not generally hospitable to conservatives Isaac veto worked on Crosby's twenty seventeen general election campaign for Theresa May an enduring. Listen perhaps in what not to do as a nation. We face the most important potent five years. I can remember. That is why I took the decision to call a general election so that we have a strong and stable leadership we need old to see us through brexit and beyond but La Vida made his name properly back in Australia in two thousand eighteen where he served as deputy director of the Liberal Party party. Australia's annoyingly named Conservative Party in May two thousand nineteen the Liberals led by incumbent. Prime Minister Scott Morrison steeled themselves also a general election which nobody believed they could win. With the apparent exception of Isaac La Vida veto helped create a strategy which relied on a ruthless roofless focus on the merits of the prime minister such as they were the shortcomings of the opposition leader and brutally simple messaging. It was a template readily adaptable optimal to Boris Johnson. Jeremy Corbyn and getting brexit done as is proper for a habit to of the shadows. LA- Vito has done little press press and let little be known about him. The impression conveyed by colleagues however is far from that of a fire breathing bully reports to Picton Ernest. Decisive voices won't see working eighteen hour days and maintaining a clear focus on what is required for victory undistracted by the gaffes bloopers or short circuits of the candidate which in a campaign for Boris Johnson must require a superhuman serenity libido and his pair of young New Zealander Digital Gurus. Ben guerin and Sean topping also understood that social media campaigns need to be effective rather than outwardly sophisticated. They were clearly on embarrassed to be seen pushing what looked to anybody but angry. Daily Mail reading pensioners like absurd amateurish. Nonsense Libido was not however shy about removing other senior Tories from the spotlight. At the end of Shepherd's Crook early in the campaign at related would housing and Mannequin Jacob. Rees Mogg intoned some ill-advised remarks about the victims of the two thousand seventeen grenfell tower disaster. I think if either of us were in a fire whatever the brigade said we would leave the burning building. It just seems the common sense thing to do and it is such a tragedy that that didn't happen but I didn't do with race or class. Rees MOGG has has bailey been heard from since and for that much.

Europe Is Burning U.S. Wood As Climate-Friendly Fuel, But Green Groups Protest
"World leaders are gathering at a U. N. climate summit in Madrid this week to talk about how to reduce greenhouse emissions in the search for alternatives to fossil fuel. Some some countries have now turned to one of the oldest energy sources around would some are importing from the United States calling it clean and renewable but some environmentalists. Say this makes no oh sense. NPR's Dan Charles has the story on a soggy field in eastern North Carolina. Jason Too and his crew loggers cutting trees threes and sorting the logs into piles depending on their size. And what kind of would they are poplar. Sweet Gum Elm right there. Some piles will go into plywood. Some will become puffy absorbent fiber in baby diapers and then there's the least valuable pile the small limbs tops of hardwood trees. It's basically a trash. Should we would've normally hauled that back out in the woods and just left it. But now there's a new market for that Wood Pellet Mills they've expanded across the southeast over the past decade. They'll take this would crush it and pressed into little pellets. Ready for burning fuel the landowners. Getting some by we're getting some production is just an all around good deal do most of these pellets. Millions of tons each year. We'll get shipped to Europe where burned in power plants because some European governments are offering financial subsidies cities to burn these pellets. Instead of say coal it's supposed to help fight climate change. Here's Seth Ginther. Executive Director of the industry group that represents Wood Pellett companies. The carbon benefits are tremendous burning. Would also biomass does release lots of carbon dioxide the greenhouse gas. But the idea behind had the subsidies is you can let farce grow back. And as they do they'll recapture the carbon dioxide from the air and stored in their branches and roots again so it's considered renewable lable just like wind or solar the European Union literally just pass something known as the Renewable Energy Directive to and biomass sustainable biomass ass was unequivocally included as part of what can meet renewable energy goals but environmental groups are challenging that decision in court. They say the idea that large scale. wood-burning is carbon neutral is based on bad math and to explain exactly why Adam collect from the environmental group Dogwood Alliance takes me to another patch of land North Carolina near the town of Williamson. I know it doesn't look like much but we're gonNA take a walk. It's covered with bushes and little trees as maybe ten feet tall. In the south. We call it a briar patch but yet on paper this is a forest for years ago really was a forest with big trees rees then it was locked some of it went to make wood pellets. So let's count the carbon emissions accurately. Colette says when the big trees were cut they stopped opt capturing carbon dioxide from the air that benefit was lost at least temporarily and some of the carbon they'd previously stored was released into the air when the wood pellets were burned and as tree roots decomposed. But you won't see any of that in the official calculations of greenhouse emissions. He says none of it's ever been counted in any of our like emissions counting in the US or in Europe that's because the forest eventually will grow back and recapture that lost carbon but it could take a century for that to happen now. Seth Ginther from the US Industrial Pellet Association says his industry should not be blamed for those carbon emissions because wood pellets are not the reason forests wrists are cleared. These are lands that are being harvested for Sawed Timber for housing for paper and for other things what we're taking is is the the byproduct of that in facto independent forestry experts. Say That's not completely true. Their data shows that the wood pellet industry is competing for some of the same. Would that might go for making paper or diapers and it's pushing up prices for that. Would Adam Collette from Dogwood. Alliance thinks it's persuading some small landowners to harvest their trees. You have have more knocks on those doors. More telephone calls saying hey I'll give you X.. Number of dollars for your trees. What Colette wants is for officials to knock on those doors with a different different message encouraging landowners to maintain forests expand them? Our forests are young. They're degraded and what that means. Is that the potential Henschel to suck carbon out of the atmosphere of force in the U._S.. South is enormous. Those forests are some of the best climate solutions. We have he says if they keep growing Dan. Charles N._p._R.

Evo Morales begins Mexico exile as senator claims interim presidency
"Bolivia's former president. Evo Morales arrived in Mexico today to live in exile. He resigned Sunday amid protests that began after serious areas flaws were found. In last month's election now the senator next in the Bolivian Line of succession has announced. She will assume the presidency and peers. Philip Reeves is in the capital city the of Lopez and before we begin Phillip Here's what we know Morales resigned. His government collapsed anyone constitutionally designated to replace him step down. So what have you learned about this senator. WHO's announced her intention to lead the country? She's called Janina. She's fifty two. She's the second vice president. She's a lawyer with a media background and she's a fierce critic of Morales she had earlier announced that Bolivia's congress was going to convene this afternoon to formerly decide who would stand in as interim president. And here's the thing. Allies of Morales hold a majority in Congress and they don't necessarily want her a lot. All of them didn't show up today. So the problem forming a quorum yet despite this she went ahead and took control of the Senate and assumed the mantle of interim president saying she wants elections as soon as possible now members of Morales Party. The Movement for socialism were there when she made that announcement. It's not clear to me at this point whether her move will stick or whether Congress will accept this given the absence of a quorum. There's certainly been an angry reaction from morality supporters some some of whom tried to reach the Congress building after the announcement was made and they were met by police and soldiers firing tear gas at them. You've underscored the challenges that you'll have with all of the Morales support still in Bolivia's Congress. What do we know about Bolivians more? Generally well this is a very unstable volatile point in the history of this country. You just have to travel around this city to see that a lot of roads blocked off by makeshift barricades Arkadiusz. The city's pretty much shut down in the city today. The were very large numbers of police on the streets in full riot gear. The army's also on the streets it's those people who've been protesting for several weeks against morale is after the election. That was last month are celebrating. Because he's gum but but others are angry. Many of the people at the demonstration that was held today by supporters of Morales in the city are indigenous. Bolivians like Madonna's himself. They revere him because he did much to lift. Indigenous people out of poverty during his fourteen years nearly in power but one particularly disturbing. Something happened during that. Protest military jets flew very low and very fast over the crowd on multiple occasions while I was there and this was evidently meant as a show of force but it didn't seem to unsettle them one of their chance. Was You know we are not afraid. Given what you've described even with this interim turn presidency. Has the danger passed. No by no means I mean this is a very unstable situation. People here are worried about that. I spoke to one woman even today. Who didn't or doesn't align herself with Morales or with the opposition? She says she's no faith. That civilian politicians can resolve this situation. Adamantly and settler leader that can really manage a peaceful transition to new elections. She says she's worried. She says she's afraid and from the scenes gene today. I think she might be right to feel that way. That's NPR's Philip Rees reporting from La Paz Bolivia. Thank
Campaigning gets underway in UK general election
"Let's get more on that story about the UK hey general election getting underway joined in the studio by terry siesta as a political journalist with a regular chronicler of all things westminster welcome back terry to the show as if to prove the fast paced nature of things here in the UK capital some breaking news more news for the government yes this is supposed to be the big day when boris johnson launches his election campaign he's been to see the queen this morning to tell her that parliament is now officially dissolved in the campaign is properly up and running and what has happened on the first day he has had to lose a a member of his cabinet the welsh secretary alan cans who has just been forced to resign fine because it's to do with the question of what he had known about evidence that one of his aides had given in a rape trial and it turns out he said that he hadn't known about this misleading evidence that his his former aide given it it turns out that he didn't know that this was damaging very damaging to the trial and he has now on with absolutely dreadful timing for the government to offer his resignation i guess is as a sanitary lesson about you know tori pledges to get brexit done that's absolutely fundamental to the whole campaign and this is another sort of wheel another spoken the wheel of the the shows exactly how that's going to be yes i mean boris johnson later today's expected to set out what he wants to be talking about during this election campaign and that we expect will be things like you know very much his domestic agenda things like spending on hospitals things like funding schools things like more funding for well police officers and of course on top of that his his claim that he will increase you know get brexit don t won't be it'll be more uncertainty that it will be finished by by the end of january the trouble is that in the campaign such as it's been so far he i mean and this happens in every campaign has to be said but the things are knocked off course so not only have we had this resignation today we've also had for instance jacob reasonable see making some new is the leader of the house of commons at the moment making taking some extremely ill advised comments about the grenfell fire and appearing to suggest that if people had had common sense than they might have not done the fire brigade told them to do which was put in that they might have they might have escaped and then one of his colleagues piling in on that seeming to suggest that jacob rees-mogg was after all a very clever person might and you know this played really badly now there are always gifts in an election campaign i i think the what's the what's difficult tell what cuts through to your voters who are out in their constituencies having politicians turn up in in big buses and wanting to shake their hand i think the problem with something like the grenfell jacob rees more cases it plays into what people already think about certain members this government i in jacob rees-mogg case that he is a very well off privileged man who is not someone who either personally or professionally has much idea of what it might be like to either fight a fire and a tower block live in one and that sense of seeming out of touch i think is is a big risk particularly for the conservative party eh now one thing that might be different about this campaign you're quite right of course they're always these precious blowing things of course is potentially that there are maybe more players or more parties as we are more groups within a westminster and it's on barons who will be pitching punches some people saying look essentially this is a four party election and maybe the brexit issue makes it so oh there's there's much terry i mean clearly we still fundamentally have two party system but there seems to be something different in in the water what do you make about yes i think this is going to be a hard election to predicts partly because we're starting from a point where you have minority government essentially going into an election so you have a lot of conservatives and we've seen them over the last few days standing down former conservative people who've been thrown out of the party people like hank clark people like philip hammond people like the former minister advisor today in traditional conservative seats and they will obviously be replaced by new candidates but you know the votes in some of those areas might be up for grabs recede in the liberal democrats at the moment going into the campaign quite strongly with the very remain message and we've seen in the labor party is actually being fairly unclear about what their brexit position is which is not to say that brexit is going to be the only issue in this election election but

That's also a great seeing it's a great scene with she's landed like they're eating because they got extra rounds or whatever and more soccer right and like they're sitting on their little poor or in their aprons and they're like what a day and I like. I mean it's it's incredible and that's when no face-to-face no face shows up in the middle of this she lets her in by him and by mistake because he seems nice also just like us just like how was I supposed to know. He was a spirit weird. He's just freaky as everyone else. Why should I let him in. It's not like it should be like little with an x like this guy. Money's no good no one's giving give me a visual glossary like I'm riffing here. Yeah Count Ashi faceless is his name I'm trying to figure out if what he's based on you know what I mean chair right thought this was he doesn't exist in Japanese thought this was just a Miyazaki right like like thing he came up with his face design is taken from a Silkworm Yep but he is just just sort of black cloak with a mask right. I guess he's Spooky. He is most iconic imagery as OCU- character other than totara. I would say I would say absolutely and what again this is like. We're I don't know if the analysis is cultural psychological or something thing deeper but like why is this character so fucking iconic and intriguing well what what is quiet thing. Obviously he's going to turn into monster EP old. That's pretty bad but I mean when he's just and this is. Why is he so transfer fixing for most of the here's the shape of your water bottle sitting here for most of the film he does not have any limbs. He is just sort of like a big mound yeah yeah if he walks like a little foot might appear to step right right very slender surprisingly slender limbs a will say yeah he's. Somewhat Feminine Yeah and He's I don't know. What does he represent like loneliness? That's the thing so I think if you're thinking about all this as a huge economic he is this thing that doesn't make sense within the cogs of Angel Investor. He's just someone who can just make money appear out. It's all bullshit and he's also he's just modeling other modeling that behavior of anyone. He ingests anyone as around right. Go ahead go. Let's say like is no face. He has no identity right he he eats the frog and he becomes greedy because the frog is greedy right and so you know and like starts talking like the frog kind of associate path in a way that is scary cannot figure out why someone is operating the way they're operating which like like that's what happens when you remove someone's face and you can't read their emotions shirt nervous about by the time we meet no face. We've met a lot of unusual characters yeah but they all fell asleep but they all have recognizably more or less human personalities mhm you. Baba is just contancts grumpy. Yes Taran ICAL yeah we we know we've all fairchild and what's his name boiler room man budgie right yeah Cross Ratchet Nice Guy but harder gold land land bossy elder sister to mean boy that maybe you like. What is this feeling right yeah but I like Mr Kohl won? It is interesting interesting. Question is like doesn't he seems hard to startle. You know what I mean. I think very very relaxed right right yeah but no face is the most obviously Indyk Matic yeah and I think you're right. What's what's a little disturbing about about him. Is You know there's no real sense of motivation. I guess other than just fathomless loneliness and emptiness. I think thing that is terrifying childlike. That's right your greatest. Fear is to end up highway and everyone in the bath house. It exists in this sort of system like this kind of greedy system uh-huh you. WanNa hoard what you can get. There's all the tags. There's the better tags on the worst. you know all that stuff so when he shows up he's like. I'll pay whatever for whatever you provide provide. They are all they're like. This is a bonanza right but sin is still a child does not have thoughts of like monetary gain. That's just that's not kind of in her character yet so that's why she can take totally defeat no face limitless gold and she's like what am. I doing that right. She's he's kind of uncorruptible. I mean she's like I'm here to rescue my parents and probably learned some valuable life lessons like you know about the spirit of work in the collective and all that but if this is Miyazaki's story about contemporary Japanese culture and the emptiness of of post industrial capitalism totalism which it probably is and that's and so we see everyone at their worst when no face shows up with free unlimited money because they're all debasing themselves in front of no fees the right yeah and and but do you think in Miyazaki's mind no face represents an actual economic condition in Japan or personality. I just know I don't know I can't remember what's interesting using about no faces. No face isn't really greedy right. No face just want love right okay one hundred percent. I just can't imagine somebody who would throw around a lot of money. In Service of seeking validation from others not makes zero sense and how far could that person possibly go right and the idea of that kind of person who is so hollow in vacant whose motivations you can never figure out because there's nothing really going on there that that people would just fall over themselves giving him anything he wanted right. You know that they were totally debase themselves. They would surrender all their values so I'm saying this movie is hard to me at the fear of him devouring them so here's something he said it's more about the pigs but you know it's to hear his parents during into symbolizes how humans have become greedy at the very moment she hero says there's something about the town. Her parents turned picks. There are people that turned into pigs during your trapans bubble economy me in the nineteen eighties and these people hadn't realized they'd become picks once someone becomes a pig they don't return to being human. They just gradually start to have the body and soul role of pick. These people are the one saying we're in a recession and we don't have enough to eat. This doesn't apply to a fantasy world. This isn't just perhaps it. Isn't it a coincidence that the food is an actually actually a trap to catch lost humans so like I think he probably talking about. I mean what happened to his country. That metaphor is a little easier to read the no face. There's no I know but I'm just saying like you know. Do you know what I find very unnerving about the Paren- pig thing in particular. The transformation doesn't happen on screen right. They don't give us a CA- Pinocchio Yeah but when you see them hunched over they are sort of like reading but it's this fact that they cannot stop eating right here their daughter just the thing that like some switch goes off where they're like. This food is good. Then it becomes so thoroughly consumed by the food that they cannot not hear her right and they cannot stop moving things into their mouth that it's just like like that. They're gone hundred percent spirited away pigs no face oh right so the dumpling the vomit dumpling right half of it is used to cure no face right and she puts it inside him. He just like he just emits. Voids right right like just goo comes out of him basically right now. It's really satisfying moment of expulsion and liquor vomiting. Oh Yeah Jimbo popping move no totally movies simultaneously extremely spiritual Esoteric Serene area grounded with body horror and like real fundamental lake substances being secreted from orifices. Hungry sightings are disgusting. We call full spectrum dominance and then you know with Hukou Hukou is the other half. I'm like there's that moment where like he's he's shaking and the blood center yes. Yes yes APPs against the wall yeah. has there ever been an American children's film with this much body stuff fucking. What's it called Dan by me as famous vomiting yeah yeah. I mean you know it's interesting. Animated Pixar ever made a movie where people grow up and go to the bathroom so far away from its monsters. INC has bathroom ship really really has scenes in a bathroom our bathroom sense yeah bathroom and throw no it's more. There's antics in about those that you know they they hide. The little girl in the bathroom doesn't count. I'm talking about right but there's no actual sort of bathroom. Talk right like no people who would pee you know Anderson Right right like I throw up. Spit 'cause the thing I remember most monsters INC which is burned into my brain. Forever is Steve Shemi whatever he's called yeah where he reynolds every time bang knocks open a bathroom right bank. Does it again like that's the image using the toilet though I mean this is not their job trying to think I mean I feel like when I would watch animated movies as a child that would give me the same sort of discomfort unlike body horror films that were intentionally trying to trap in to something they'd be movies that were bad and Bentley were setting like there. Are Things like the the Weird Felix the cat animated movie sure or like a weird like raggedy Ann and Andy Musical. I don't know the these are like bad and animated films that were like failures were disliked by children that I would watch a lot because my mother was over protective if they were the things playing on the few channels that she let me you watch and those movies I remember having physical things that made me uncomfortable Japanese Little Nemo in slumber land movie but what those movies are often not dealing with very biological thing like Brennan stimpy and Rocco's modern life those TV shows but those come come to my pus and really it was more sort of fetishistic like. Can you believe how like amazingly drawn this booger is. You know what I mean like right. You know like we needed shots. Were there zooming in on a no poor. Guess what what's interesting about spirited away as of those moments of like. It's pretty gruesome yeah but it's not done obviously as for humor shock it steamatic. This scene is when everything has calmed down and everyone needs to chill out right like it's very it's very violent violent and sort of everything's been oxy turvy and after he blow barf everywhere he knew they need to they need to take it easy like the movie has to be very calm now right I mean I guess there's what's the point with the baby the point with the baby. When is she with the baby. That's before she goes on the train. Yes right like this is all happening like it's like after this. She gets summit to you. Baba's office you. Bob Is yelling at her. There's the pilot gold turns into Mush right right like there's the thing where to heroes with the baby and the baby's padded room right and scares the baby with with her hand her dirty hand. Oh I forgot about that. The baby lives in this like totally as a bit of a Germaphobe right well. The mother has commenced the baby. That'd be outside right yeah right because the whole like like I'm right. This Hukou is being attacked by the fucking paper creatures that rules you see in the distance and and it's like right on you and it's really visceral and horrible yeah but Wednesday Anita arrives and she transforms everyone right well. You should explain that Zeba has transferred herself via Hologram into being one of these projected as as attached herself to the back of hero unbeknownst to her so that she can get gain access to you. Baba's person it in and look around amount where she suddenly creates mayhem. She turns the heads into the baby the baby into a mouse right she turns the harbory shirts a little fly but like a total cartoon her tune. I mean again. This is when this is another moment. It's like I don't I've given up trying to understand what mythological whirlwind but it's also like. What kind of cartooning are we doing? Holy looks like a Disney not even Disney. This just looks like a Saturday morning cartoon tune belittle mouse especially syndrome but but it's so crushing when you Baba sees the mouse and it's like get Thatta here with the rice resting and she hears like you don't recognize that and then just tails off in Mousa- so sad then they just leave you know what when asking like are there other animated films that deal with that sort of body horror. I think the thing that I I feel like would affect me as a child. I can't think of other things that are that visceral this role in biological mess sense but it was always the went went people's bodies change so anything where somebody gets stuck doc inside another person's body but also anything were like their body gets morphed in any sort of way..

"It's bespoke post themed boxes for guys that give a damn. I like what's in this box. I like the Bucks Ed Spirit Away. Yes so she's the bathrooms. She sneaks her in and is like you. Have I have to ask for a job. They can't turn you down. The only way you're going to lose of this place is that you're must be given employment and we've already been given so many rules that she's been well. I guess the first rule who was get across the river before the sun goes down the second one was hold your breath going across the bridge so you're already thinking like. Is that another thing. Is that like a trope in wrapping his folklore or is that just like he's not stepping on a crack yeah right exactly right so goes. Go get a job. Sean enough advice geared a job. That's and commodity is a Yokthai which is a a sort of Phantom. I don't know how else to describe a bit like he's got forearm. He's unusual looking yeah. He's a spider guy. He's pretty cool is spider man with a Walrus Moustache He lives in the boiler. He's animated the soot to do work He feeds them with little starfish cookies again. We'll start cookies candy that came into what is this. It looks so bright children's cereal or is this like ancient yeah. He has four arms six real taught muscle. He can stretch them as much as he can to. The infinite shelves herbs that he has right he I I mean this. I think is when I was just like I think this I love it right like when you're watching the first time we like. I understand I understand the logic everything even though I've never seen anything like this vic the logic affirming like see I can help and she only Deci Hertz right. She's I'll do what the creatures do and he's like. This is not your this isn't your zone while also he says you're useless but he also says something really interesting which is like. It's inappropriate to take someone's job. He's creatures do this and also her trying into enter. The ecosystem right leads to them all like going on a weird little strike where they suddenly dropped the whole on and she's disruptor sure right but she's bad at it. She can't pick up the coal. It's really heavy heavy for her. I I don't know I feel like the sits seen seen as like. Are you out like this. Is it right right like come on guys talk about the sexy thousand percent in good great. I mean honestly just from the emergence of Mr Arms Right commodity right and seeing a character who is against anything that this character is very confident that he is so confident understanding the rules of the world right how he needs to operate what she needs to do what everyone needs to do. There's something kind of infectious about like as opposed to like who who's been like fuck okay. Let's try this hold your breath and who a human whereas Camacho seems like of machinery that is animate uh-huh he performs a service like then you find out later what he's doing the reveal of then how he is like spreading the bath sure sure like the tags comedown yeah yeah yeah running running about his the CPU for the Bath House right right right right but also that he is in perpetual motion the MS trying to help her trying to turn what she's in. Turn never stops doing his job and it's like you know it's so the confidence of him being like I can keep doing what I need to do and also take care of. That's right taking care of these creatures taking care of these. This little girl getting worked on getting getting paid right and then Lynn shows up Lynn who is like the friend right there watching this movie a couple of days ago. I've probably we've seen this movie almost as many as many times as any other movements ever seen when just say four times aren't really. I don't really watch a lot but and I hadn't seen it. The last time I saw it was with an ex girlfriend and her two children one of whom was too young and really freaked the fuck out but I'd completely forgotten about the character of Lynn and it's actually a really charming yeah and you can read a little bit of Pacific thing to hold here yeah but in my memory of the movie I I mean I remembered all the principal characters except for Lynn. Maybe because she's the only issue human she's not right no. She doesn't look as sluggish as the other slug women. She is not human because she hero is human and they all remind smells like a hume. Yeah Okay humanoid annoyed right latest Kaman. She is the most she looks human rush she is. I have to assume a person who died. I don't really if I wanted to delve into the logic of what the spirit world is where you're dealing with these elemental creatures because like he's drawing all these Shinto beliefs spirits everywhere in the right spirits in the air the plants so like that's who some of these things are but then like the humans you're sort of like are these are these people who died and have moved into the spirit world world when they always in the spirit world nail attendance. Are there frogman. Little men female attendants are slugs right right but Lynn but Lenin some there are some human right. I don't know Linda's very clearly. You're human. You stink right yeah okay. She eats a a new one of the first things she does. His eats that fried new which is not something that I would do where she's like really into yeah right. That's is true so she's not human but she does read as if you're she is human and humanoid like I said what are you ready. Mary sign that only makes us more confusing thank you this is from the Chieveley Wiki but they're quoting the art of spirited away book sure Okay Linens portrayed as a human being in the film in the Japanese Picture Picture Book Lynn is described as Jakko a white tiger okay too. That's all Ya Yep yeah but they they identify her. As just spirit as species here right right is a spirit bright everyone sanction. She's a human spirit whereas the others are not I don't know yeah yeah we a couple other humans Ryan when where where she sleeps where they have their aprons. She is certainly the most normal central character in this film. She's architect. We fully understand. She's like the older sister who's what kind of you're right but this panther every right but she is helpful and she you know commodity. Kinda bribes her into lake. Take this new tinker to four new Baba. Take her upstairs and they again. They're like you must you cannot back down. You must ask for work at a drill. Get A job. You have to become part of the economy you have to be and there is this weird. Connor wants to escape childhood. You must become a productive member of this economy. Yes right right it. Describe right you know the the free rides over you gotta be contributing something right. You can't just bum around here which which is one thing that I feel like we'll get to know face but why he so disruptive like no faces not part of how the all the the capitalists sort of collective elective balances at work. He's still getting chills talking about all this. I watch this movie again. I highly recommend a million times. It's pretty much always kind of reward yeah even if you don't even if you WanNa Kinda just have it on and sort of soaking not like think about it too hard right. You know what I mean. It's rewarding in every way yeah. It's rewarding insertive really really concentrating and thinking about every single choice. That's being made I mean when she enters the bath house. It's so beautiful. It's so scary right. It is that kid feeling of I don't know the rules of this place grownups and all these right but there's also like frogs and radish spirit right this was his most can't even can't even talk about that shot out of her squeezed up again to eight at the rabbits the register and he has those ten coming off his breasts and so also he's nice when you're all their spouse to her and she's like right yeah right yeah right yeah yeah. The spirits aren't like monsters vinyl Vieillard right here in Berlin and Evelyn right. Are we going to say Griffin now. He's GonNa say a couple things. The radish spirit has definitely big. Ben Energy feels director actor. Hell Yeah but but also this I think was the most expensive film at the time and I mean Monan okay had been a a game changing sensation he can right right so you had a bit of a blank check and because his stature has risen so much news going to have to use more. CGI for the film knew it was going to be very production. He said his original script is three hours long and so he was like I have to. This is insane okay. His quote was in order to get to a manageable length. I had to cut out all the candy in his mind this movie sorry so flat and colorless something I haven't. I've seen a million times. Why don't you cut it down just a radish spirit on an elevator shit. We've seen a thousand times before I mean. That's just just act to you. Got Your building blocks of Hollywood story totally right there you go yeah. Hollywood insider meeting with the Goddess Fat Vegetable and Elevator and you're watching Lynn who again like same thing with Hukou like antagonistic to us sometimes but then you watch them be altruistic yeah in your you know she does she eats the sort of gets her through with Newt Right. What I was GonNa say is there are so many characters in this film primary characters who are so oh detailed and the more detail you having a basic character obviously the more of a nightmare it is to animate and multiple scenes especially in extreme motion and it's the reason why most cartoon designs very simplistic. Charlie Brown is sort of like a platonic ideal for a cartoonist because it's like it's just a ball. It's a sphere and it's got a couple of DOTS and lines on it and it's easy to draw him from any angle but like what's her name. I keep wanting to say Bobby Yoga because I'm a more you Baba aw is just like the first moment she appears on screen and you're like he's going to really he's going to challenge himself to keep animating this character for the next ninety minutes. Let's with that wrinkle structure on her face that one scene very late in the film with Danica where just her nose sort of hovering yeah and you're there's no logical way to not have that nose because it's so also the work you have to be like. I need to fully figure out how this knows looks in three dimensions here all the wrinkles wrinkles and like like this knows and I need to know how to animate it within space and movement also just not too easy. Let's give her a ton of jewelry right like everything freethinking and her are completely illogical right so this was the first one where they sold the rights to Disney before production in order to get financing to help complete the Mojo really yeah. That was a big thing where once he cracked it. It was like this is going to be really expensive. We're going to need some more money. We need outside fundings. I think they sold to other countries as well but that lassiter lots of hugging lassiter went to Disney and said like can we please write lassiter lots of hugging and lasted. Who's recently been disgraced. Oh is that the Pixar but he was such a fan of so many people were as I said I think clements a muscular. Yes we're heavily inspired bye-bye. Leo's throw right for the great mouse detective things like that right. He's like you don't understand. This is like this is the guy we have to like. I think he sold to them..

"It's weird that she died but I know that she's option option for people who obviously were forged in the fires of knowing these things right. Here's the diner stand the appeal of knowing it because it's fun because then you feel like you are on the inside right. You have inside information or it's kind of like I can see the strings of the puppets you know likely but I like was obsessed trying to figure stuff out because I wanted to be making this stuff and David was obsessed with trying to figure this stuff out because he wanted to like be critically like analyzing the stugotz yeah and it's weird that like people who are or like you know. I like I'm trying to think of any job and then I'm getting caught in the web of being like we'll any job I say now sound backhanded you know but like someone who was like an arranged surgeon grain surge world's greatest brain surgery world's greatest brain surgeon also being like well. They're feeling sevens sevens off in this movie because I heard he's fulfilled. Its movie contract right. That's weird that he feels like he needs to know that it is the brain. Carson was a brain surgeon who was good at his job. He was incredibly really good really good at it. The Cuba gooding junior played junior to plan. I think we can only inspire me as ocoee. I would say to this generation this relevant. Do you know what he would say absolutely need to talk to like get a job in scrubs force. That's that'll build your care. I just think it's fascinating passing the trek and spirited away the movie that we're talking about today. Come out in the same year. Spirit away is releasing a year later both two thousand one but in America it wins the second ever best animated Oscar Trek when I and when when best emitted like feature was established people were like this is the Pixar Category A category like movies Senate Commerce right they will surely dominate right and in fact the first two years it's dreamworks the First Year Shrek Beats Monsters Inc.. I think because Monsters Inc magazine is like oh well. That's like a soft. Pixar movie and Shrek is here to terrible. Monsters INC is like a pleasant but obviously a very light. It's not a serious this film right and now like Monsters Inc is like a paragon of storytelling and Shrek. No one likes like even the kids who grew up with trek now just make trick. Dank names. Yeah I mean it doesn't help Shrek. Shrek has not aged well. I don't drink his aged very bad. I don't think there are like herons showing their kids track. Belle of the ball yeah no large into a Pumpkin. That sounds like a joke. Shrek would make really is even through osmosis been influenced by Shrek. Am I incorrect in thinking that in track they turn an onion into a carriage and sounds right. I think there was some joke about onions. Jeans and a lot of jobs are like flares right. This is a podcast of course about tomography directors have massive accessory on their career. Give blind checks crazy passion products what our producer is tilting his head back and looking at the ceiling as if to say what am I doing here. It's called blank. Check Griffin David Griffin. I'm David sometimes they'll check. Sometimes bounce baby is amazing on the phones. A high of me is arkie. It's called Housman pod castle. That's right and our guests today. A returning guest longtime aspirational returning gassed Davies Hi thanks for having me back excited to be here now. We wanted you on the show when we started the show and you said I'll come on. If you talk about a I and it was one of the reasons we decided to delay period Spielberg because we can get on the show and then very shortly after that we'd like we'd love to have you back and you're like I'd come on the talk about Miami Vice or spirited away and it's one of the reasons we did. Michael Man is hockey back to back back. 'cause we were like we'll get them on one of them here. I am here. You are wait. You don't seem excited. I'm bummed about the Miami Vice One man. I was so amped can't let it go already yelled at you at Dinner Party about it and you've yelled at me multiple anyway. You're you're. You're on my what I brought my special. Oh folder he's got. He's got a photo. You're here to talk about. What might be the best movie ever made well. I'm so excited to hear you say that. I got a little goosebumps on my arm because I'm every time I watch it. I'm like really and kind of like well I mean. I don't know that you could do something better than this. I'm sure you don't agree with me completely. I was GONNA. Yes Oh. I saw this groupings. More of a neophyte to Muzak is sorta arc of this is my exposure therapy this this mini series I even told her when I was a child didn't get it and didn't try to engage with the other music movies and then when this came out in the states it was such a big sensation that was like goddess and that was was also an Oscar Junkie at that point that unified David knives that we were thirteen year old Oscar industry insiders reading entertainment weekly magazine complaining about the show for me as ocoee latest Litas Tadpole. We look we were real insiders. We hate the fact that everyone is an insider. Now I know God. Everyone's trying to tell me. How Oscar would it be Star Wars Guy Saying I've been I've been in this trust in my ass stars in five years yeah but sought saw this when it came out uh states the dubbed version and went yeah. I totally don't get this. I was fourteen at the time maybe thirteen and I really yeah okay thirteen hundred title to yeah I was thirteen and I was like don't don't get this and just don't get it in a bad way. I guess you're saying Yeah I was like I don't understand. The people are connecting to now like I don't understand that it's a wonderful. I feel over owned. No I was like I don't understand what the thing is right yeah and clearly. I'm in the minority orgy of the same. I mean I saw it as a full adult and I also but well we'll get. We'll get into right but so this may Sir I wanna I wanNA watch all of these and see if I can create this yeah and it's all sort of been building up to this one being like. Can I revisit this movie for the first time in almost was twenty years right and make sense of it so you haven't seen it since you saw it in. Ot Wow yeah okay and saw dubbed and I've watched it some yeah and I I was watching. I was like this is kind of just a completely undeniably powerful object yeah like I was kind of stunned that there was ever for a time where I wasn't connecting with it like even if this isn't my favorite movie and I wouldn't put it on my personal top ten grace films of all. I was like watching I I was like this is like the Sistine Chapel or something. This is like some undeniable accomplishment. Humanity fully came to the thing is is now the time taken up okay. He's opened the folder. He has in a clipping a yellow financial missile salmon-colored always been this color so he's got a piece of newspaper reason that I really wanted to do spirited away because it it is I think undeniably the work of a total genius even if it's someone inaccessible for cultural reasons psychological reasons or whatever I agree fully but for me I think the thing thing that I've thought about almost as much as I thought about spirited away is a review spirited away that I read and then clipped as you can see from the Financial Times the September September two thousand and three and by the way when we were recording are episode. You invoked this I did did you. I don't remember Mike but it was either before said. Do you guys remember that review so this is stuck back. Here's some context when spirited away came out I was at the time of political cartoonist and I had all these file folders where would keep track of like Afghan atrocities Iraqi on address just like all these horrible file folders depressing to look at and then I had this other file file folder. I just called great writing and there's just stuff in here that I really enjoyed like this is a list of all of Kool Keith's personas. That's cool. Dr Octagon Fly Ricky Rickie the wine taster Mr Berbick. It always just made me happy to have this and then this is This is an academic article written by my Godfather called treatment of hernia in the later Middle Ages surgical correction and social construction. My Godfather is a historian of medicine is very intense article about how they performed Hernias and thirteen hundred then I have this invoice for these incredibly dangerous magnets that I bought that almost tore my marriage apart but the like through magnet forth like physically arrows magnets called gals boy super super magnets they were these magazines were so powerful they were dangerous. I could not believe I was legally allowed to order these magnets because I mean they could go through through. You had to keep them away credit cards and pacemakers. There were so powerful on one time I was trying to. I was doing what you're not supposed to like. Similar later and yeah right right around and part of the magnet flew a shard of the magnet flew across the kitchen and almost took out my ex-wife's I anyway how can I do you mind. I won't say it on. Can I look at the invoice. I'm curious. You're saying that you shouldn't have been able to buy these. I'm curious. Wow that is cheap right. Can I say that is I want and you got a discount. You gotTA break price brake disc wow. I can't believe something this dangerous could cost the little money right. Okay so maybe even two thousand two or whatever yeah we will not say down there. It was a nice down there. It was a time of transition endowed. GonNa say a time of transition is really cheap to live down there back then I will say I'll probably never live in his nice and apartment as they lived down there. I will say too. I mean David had primed me with live down there. I was not expecting this far down and say how far down was pretty far down. Live down there.

Patriots drop Antonio Brown after accusations of sexual misconduct
"Is Antonio brown has the latest chapter two weeks after signing in the patriots have released the wide receiver brown has been accused of sexually assaulting his former trainer Britney Taylor according to a civil lawsuit filed September tenth Taylor met with the NFL on September sixteenth and there are more interviews being conducted beyond tailored remains unclear when or if brown will interview with the league this was bill bell check before the pats cut ties with brown and may give you an indication of his threshold with all the A. B. drama in terms of what was to come how important is because you're off the field everything is important. bill do you expect to have Antonio available to you on something. he's on a roster number headline today focusing on Antonio brown is there any of this at all affect the status with the team. I think I've already addressed so we're gonna. get ready for the jets here have answering football questions the rest of it I'm not going down with the rest of it. zero point were some awful stuff is not so much yeah. that's yeah I'm good okay thank you well it will. game set match right there right in addition to the lawsuit brown faces another allegation of sexual misconduct by a female orders who was working at is western Pennsylvania home in twenty seventeen that allegation was part of a Sports Illustrated report that detailed domestic incidents involving brown a charity auction theft in multiple unpaid debts on Thursday the lawyer for the artist reach out to the NFL after brown apparently sent a what were described as threatening text messages to her clients according to ESPN's Mike Rees brown's text messages to the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct were viewed by some in the organization who have crossed the line is lawyers called the messages which included a picture of her children intimidating a source telling E. S. P. N. of those are brought those messages were the final straw ESPN NFL nation patch reporter Mike Reiss NFL insider Adam Schefter on why the decision was made and why now so here's the latest here from team headquarters obviously a decision like this doesn't come without high level discussions and when we talk about high level discussions with the patriots you're obviously going right to the top with the owner Robert Kraft and head coach bill Belichick in this decision was described to me as one that they came to together and that they're aligned with then obviously you know bringing Antonio brown to the patriots initially was something that was a decision that wasn't easy to come to for the patriots given their history with players and domestic violence and sexual assault and so this was a sensitive situation from the get go and today it reached a critical mass and it was described to me that the statement the team released was short and sweet for a reason because they're gonna let their actions do the talking and they're not going to get into a deep explanation as to why this decision came today if the New England Patriots knew that was coming do you think that they would have gone ahead and signs Antonio brown. no so we start off the relationship. on a bad foot and then. it was created obviously documented that incident last night with your latest. text and harassment of another one of Antonio grounds accusers and when you have that added to the pot it makes it even more toxic. and again I emphasize that there were people I think are apprehensive about bringing a report from the beginning when they found out about this it made it more difficult and there were as Mike we should look at you high level discussions throughout the course of the day to day about what the show aired in shouldn't do. and ultimately I think it became very clear that it was watching the press conference with bill Belichick today it dawned on me. you have a true no team that is not allowed to touch down all season. they're about to put the jets and go to free you know. they are poised to make more and it'll history an old bill Belichick or discuss the double check her doctor later press conference as you should be by the way. was Antonio brown questions. you could see that he just said okay I'm done. that was not going away anytime soon and by the way it is been that way since the sun Antonio brown yeah the text messages were significant in that they were sent while brown was a member of the patriots Louis Riddick on SportsCenter and if this is the end of four a B. I can't really say because we've seen time and again. always becoming numbered with become drawn to and attracted to be transcended. Paul talent Paul Dougherty and what he can do for your football team is the entrance of the something that we become too loose that's become afraid to become too loose within used to much conflict and Antonio case it's truly is he is a one of a kind type of player it will make all the ground is. that type of town and I don't know if the people in the last of the I don't know people will justify taking another chance on him provided that he take the necessary steps to kind of life you get his life back on track off the field and I don't know what that looks like I don't know what those kinds of you know this kind of action would actually look like in order to appease games and make them feel comfortable taking a chance on I don't know but I wouldn't doubt it I wouldn't doubt that someone is looking for reasons to try and go ahead and say we could still use that player on the football field we can still use what he breaks I wouldn't put it past a TV to do that I mean at this point in time there's been so much history here that says that he really needs to really reset if you really feel like they need to be some kind of like major intervention with him to get him back on the right right Pat but. you know I I can't speak for every team because every time you know you make some kind of absolute statement about the end of this for a career or this player is hit the wall going downhill. any how it always comes back to bite you in there and in this situation when you talk about a player's individual behavior off the field in particular when you don't wear with none of us really know how players really act off the field if you think that you do then you're kidding yourself I don't know will keen on a brown should be in the league regardless of team the New England Patriots have released Antonio brown this was never going to work it was never going to last when the patriots signed Antonio brown I said he would not be a pager by the end of the season I said several times throughout this process the Tigers do not change their stripes and I think that has proved true once again it is the accumulation of Antonio brown's actions in character. they have proven too much for professional football this is not a person who can be trusted this is not a person making wise decisions it is not a person exhibiting. quality character it's not a person should be in professional football not now so again prior to the text messages all the issues surrounding brown were from before he signed with the patriots September night the four time Pro Bowl selection has denied all allegations brown practice with a patch early on Friday putting his thanks to the organization the patriots sent out the following statement we appreciate the hard work of many people over the past eleven days but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at
