This is the Dan lebatardshow with this to got spot Cass. I did is off today. Lots of gets you the Academy Awards. No host ruin the entire show. Mike Ryan all fired up about LeBron James. Whether Mike likes it or not break ODI has thoughts. Both Jim boeheim and Robert Kraft. Rick Odeon today, by the way, the Monday good morning. So we've got a lot to get it. And this whole Bradley Cooper lady Gaga thing. I mean, what a fee ASCA what a sham to be honest with you. We'll get to sham. I mean, seriously the movies over what's happening. There seems very very real and not at all as sham to real my daughters. Rachel and Emma fifteen year olds wins both want them to be together so badly so badly, and I keep trying to explain to them that they're not. But it's a hard thing to explain to them because it looks like they're together all the time. Dating celebrity infidelity is weird. Because it seems like it's okay. If you like the people involved don't get me started on the office because I've done this healthy office before this, Jim and Pam business that everybody thought they were great love story. Pam was with ROY the whole time. All right. And then she's kissing Jim and Jim's kissing her. And it's like listen what they're doing is wrong morally. All right. Just because you like the people involved doesn't mean that infidelities. Okay, people they had to correct it. They went over the top and trying to make you dislike ROY ROY was even acting outside of normal ROY behavior to make it work, and I still felt bad for ROY. It was too much. It was they were making ROY out to be too much of a bad guy, destroying bars. Crashing jet skis too much. I mean, his life was tearing apart at the seams because of PAM's actions. No doubt still a good show. I'm not criticizing the show. I'm not criticizing Mike. Sure. Who's a friend of the show of you? And I don't think you know, who I am. I'm not criticizing any of that. That's still a good show one of my favorite shows. But listen, I feel like we were sending the wrong message with that. One. And we're kind of doing the same thing here lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. I totally agree. I mean, we're sending out something at listen. They were great in the movie together a cliche movie, right cliche rockstar. He turned him. They Bradley Cooper and Eddie Vedder, essentially for the tricky problem. I mean, this is the fourth time they've done a star is born. Very follows a formula no-doubt as successful one that I do think that they're going to become a couple though Cooper Gaga. This prediction. I'm really just and her engagement broke up. That's correct. Did you see Bradley Cooper was with last night's? She has to be getting jealous. Right when she watches that performance. So my daughter's think, they feel the same way they think that Bradley Cooper's girlfriend who thinks his wife is that his wife now for long, really. Okay. So we're just jumping into this. We're not gonna talk around it. Put it on the poll is Bradley Cooper's marriage is done. So. Yeah, we are. We're just going full bore. I wanted to start with RIC flair birthday party. You were added over the weekend. That's where I wanted to start. But everyone seems to be into this into this Bradley Cooper, lady Gaga thing. We can say Bradley Cooper, lady Gaga. Where do you wanna go say, Bradley Cooper? I mean, I have thoughts on Cooper. But I wasn't at RIC flair birthday. You were. I was invited. Didn't go ahead of across mitzvah. But I want you to take me inside of Rick players birthday. Because that thing looked amazing. It was it was surreal, by the way. Stephen pulled the same exact move. You. Did I saw that even eight left a comment? Sorry. Couldn't be there. Sue guys, very heavy played. Hey, I couldn't be there had a lacrosse mitzvah. Man. It was surreal. It was great. The coolest thing was actually seeing how touched RIC flair was is he like that collection. I was no doubt the valise famous person in that room. I you don't you sort of Sessa room trying to figure out who doesn't belong there. Right. And I came to the conclusion that I was a person that didn't belong in that room. So made for it definitely messed with my head a little bit. But it was a I mean a night that I'll never forget namedrop like who who was in the room. Well, there are plenty of reported. Details out there. I cannot confirm that both nasty boys were out there. I only saw knobs the NC sags. So I don't know what that railroad out there only saw Brian nods. It was it was a video on ESPN dot com. So Todd Gurley. Was there Rodman was there? Look healthy was he healthy? He's been around pretty well even around pretty well Holyfield was out there. Charles Barkley was there, and from rustler's, it was actually I assume that they were going to be a lot of old timers out there. But really like guys at grew up watching symbo was out there. But there's a lot of people that were sort of contemporaries, which was really cool to see Jeff hardy, you know, eh Booker T. I mean, it was I did not belong in this room whatsoever. But it was really cool to see how happy RIC flair was made about it. He came in and immediately cried at just realizing like everybody had come out for him. And it was so touching especially if you followed what's happened with RIC flair's health. He he almost died. So he certainly treasures every moment. And what's so cool about RIC flair is he makes you feel like you're the most important guy in the room when you're talking to them. They have this cliche. Never meet your heroes. Doesn't apply RIC flair nicest guy, it was on Instagram live his arrival, and that was really cool just their Instagram live who killed the dance floor. Like did anyone crushed? It has Florida. Actually out there on the dance for not a lot of people utilize the dance floor is just like me and Jeff hardy. We weren't dancing together words. No, no, I wasn't. I was out there dancing with Cynthia my wife, but I did have a totally awkward situation because I arrived late. They were very detailed with the prize party. I was laid to a surprise party. They were very after these surprise that guy. Well, no, no. I wasn't there after the surprise. So the time on the invite set around four thirty four forty five and every time for a party little early. Yeah. I guess eight hundred. He's not seventy anyways. So that was a very specific time. And they said Rick's gotta get there around five. Oh five. Do they won't five. Yeah. No. Well, they said he's going to be there. Five euroland. Rick shows up when Rick shows up. I I showed up at five await. Oh, yeah. I was super embarrassed by it. There's a whole there's a whole excuse for. There was a traffic jam on on ice on nine ninety five. But look everybody else dealt with it. I've been with it as earlier right easy to say. So I go in there. I'm like, please got the worst thing that the one thing that I didn't want was the show up as recliners walking in because Rick would be like, what are you doing here long carrying a huge gift in my hand. It would have sort of given away the hand, right? Yeah. Luckily, he wasn't there because RIC flair shows doesn't show up to a party on time. Thank god. But he showed up pretty close on time. I go in that room at five. Oh, wait. And it's the worst possible situation. I walk into a room a room of people that are expecting me to be RIC flair where I'm trying to keep a low. I do not belong. Did anyone yell surprise? The first thing that I see when I walk into this room is a disappointed AAA to put his phone away. Because he was he was expecting one video right now. Got quickly deleted. I'm like, oh my God. It's a room that everybody is staring at you. And you're the one guy that doesn't, but he'd be like sheepish wave like, hi guys. I shrunk to about four feet tall. I found the gift table, and I remember fighting with because I got him a picture a picture for him from all of us. And I couldn't find room for it on the table. I had this hugely oversized bag because I panicked about putting in in the right rapper. And I was there for what seemed like an eternity trying to get this gift on the table was so painfully awkward, I finally got it out on their after somebody helped me could have been anybody. I just saw just a bunch of flashing faces. And I just darted to the back of the room after that. So yeah, I was sweating sweating. I didn't even imagine dude. It was just panic. They sweating the rushing all of it layers wife was probably so mad. Oh my God. At triple h. I forget about it. He's already pissed off triple h before he stepped foot in the room. You can't. Imagine because you would not have experienced that way. You would hit everybody with a Wu and just walked right into your. You guys had me pegged to own that room. That's what you gotta do when you have when you feel like you're, you know, you're not the biggest celebrity in the room. You just going to act like you are. Yeah. You would've you. I didn't do the thing where it went up to everybody. I I wouldn't kill that room the way that you would have I certainly did the opposite. I didn't talk to anybody because I don't want to be that guy that hey, this guy doesn't belong here. And he's talking to everybody. I just kept myself. I did see Charles Barkley out there. And I know Charles a little bit. Thank God for Charles made me feel comfortable immediately. Charles's is great at that. Do Charles's a lot like Rick, and that he'll make you feel like the most important guy was he the biggest celebrity there or good. I mean. I will. I think Rick flair in terms of like who you whose most famous around the world. It's Rick and then promptly Charles Manson there. I met Shane McMahon. He's one of the few people that I actually introduce myself too. Because when I was talking to Charles he came up that Dudas fit fit. I mean, what you expect introduced I am Shane McMahon. All McMahon's fit. Put it on the poll now are all McMahon's fit. Big question. You could break news. Here was Todd Gurley dancing. Todd Gurley wasn't dancing, but he was moving. Well. Yeah. He was moving. Well, what was the spread like they've crap game or the food was so good. I mean the open bar they spare no expensive as it was tremendous. It was as RIC flair does. It was very on brand for RIC flair. Geico presents unhelpful home improvement how to a slippery bathroom floor can result in expensive hospital bills.

These live at our show with this two guys on ESPN radio a lot to get today. I want to get to the Oscars. I do. Mike wants to to rip apart. Lebron James I g to buy a mo- in on that. Greg, Cody, though, really wants to talk about Robert Kraft and this. This incredible story that broke on Friday. Robert Kraft has not been arrested yet in all likelihood he will eventually be arrested on two misdemeanor charges. This is part of a much larger investigation all of its gross. Okay. And it's part of a much larger investigation that I don't think at least we don't think of until this point that Robert Kraft is involved in that larger situation he is just one of the people who frequented this massage Potter, so Greg I have listed topic topics here. One of them is Robert Kraft. So give your thoughts here on Robert Kraft because I do find it interesting as to what Roger Goodell is gonna do with this owner, not just any owner probably hammered Jerry Jones, the highest profile most recognizable owner that the NFL has certainly its biggest brand and biggest team, right? He's he's the star to me more more. So than Jerry Jones, even Robert Kraft is the star owner in this league. And he will. Be you know, there's precedent. When say in Indianapolis went through his pills, addiction, or whatever he was fined by the NFL, and and I can substantially and I can see Robert Kraft being fined by the NFL weather. They have a draft pick subtracted from their April draft or not I I sort of doubt. But something will happen to him. Get l has come down on the patriots. He came down big time. Ballot. Check with five he has come down. And obviously came down on Tom Brady so him being afraid of the patriots. I think is out of the picture. He'll do what he has. Yeah. Yeah. And and the weird thing about the story, though, is that there's a very serious element to it. I mean if this place of business was involved in in human sex trafficking. That's serious beyond belief. I mean, and and that changes the whole way you think of of what's happening. But you know, there's no reason to think that Robert Kraft individually was doing anything, but what you would imagine he was doing in a place like that. I'm just surprised anybody with. His wealth in his fame would go to a place like this rather than just have someone come to his place and his house, right? Right. That he would go to a strip mall and go to one of those places down here, which there aren't listen. I heard this from a friend. There are millions of them. Millions of them down here in south Florida. I got that from a friend who is single. Okay. But you're surprised that that Robert Kraft would actually go to an establishment like this rather because he has all this money. Just have it come to his house. Right. I'm I'm shocked. I mean in this guy is a celebrity, you know, he went to the Oscars. I think our went to some Oscar party where everybody was and you know, he runs in top circles this guy, he's a star owner in for him to like you say a strip shopping mall. We're we're you're going to be around people who might recognize you, isn't that isn't that Robert Kraft going into that room with you know, Giselle or whatever and I didn't. The weird choice. Whoa. I didn't mean Tom Brady's wife. I I meant I was just using Giselle generic name, right? I could've said Patty or Louise or anything like that. Right. I feel like Mike is about to hit you know, an object button here. I feel like that's happened. John's on this, Mike. But. But the magistrate a content anytime where around dangerous topic and not good on the topping record terrible. What happened? Well, that's not this anytime up at anytime. Okay. My bad for giving away. Too many details. Sorry about that. Greg. You have to open the magistrate of content. You have to be something we must stop whatever it is. We're doing when the when that music place. Thankfully, my music. Let's go to what we have here. We have which musician. Do you listen to, but you're barris to admit that you listen to that. Wow. That is a good question. Musici- who use issue in that? I like that I listened to. But I'm embarrassed I don't embarrass easily. So this is gonna be a tough one for me. I wasn't Christopher cross listened to Balat. I listened to it in my car pump it up. I like it. I've been no those air supply. I'm not a barrister at it though. Chris this is not really a real artist. I listened to the tracks from pitch perfect a lot like their popular songs. But there sung by the characters. I do that with high school musical. Yeah. Yeah. I do. I do 'em Bieber. Love the early stuff the early stuff. Roy you got something. Eddie Murphy, get out here. Yeah. Let's. Of embarrassed. Yeah. Produced by James. I I understand that. I wanted ROY so badly say like backstreet, boys. Well, no, no, it wasn't that the song. They did. Michael Jackson, really was that. Avenue. Trip. Yeah. I I don't shame easily because I wear like guilty pleasures on my sleeve, but I went to smash mouth concert last year time in my life. They let everybody on the stage real purpose. It things burps. Well, because they didn't entire song for five minutes and didn't know that the microphone was out. So their whole solution to this was hey, everyone. That's at this casino. Just come on stage with us, and we'll sing you without the microphones. And as they do it a smashmouth concert things went south real quick. At least one arrest that I saw the videos are pretty epic. But smashmouth would probably be my guilty. Pleasure bill. You have one. I mean, if I if I like start bang to like a a YouTube song cold Plamen bears because I don't like them. Like, I don't like what they're huge flow. Right. A guy. I don't like pit bull. But YouTube is where you draw the line. Get over yourself. No, that's the be like YouTube, but not flow, right? Embarrassed to be associated with the idea of liking what they're about. And I'm not just not you to a stranger to your core. You'd be more embarrassed at flow ride. It was on than you to what's. No. 'cause you can look let me let me explain to you how I enjoy music do because there's a lot of people here that are very judgment judge teens here about musical tastes. And whatever a lot of people are just me. No, there's a lot of because I'm not judging you right now what I took my jacket off to do this. But here's the thing. All right. If I'm listening to music, I wanna dance I wanna have a good time on shake my head. I don't wanna listen to coal play whine about this. And that I don't wanna hear Bano tell me about the environment. All right and up for that. I wanna go out, and I wanna have a good time. And that's what that's what people gives me a Florida. I go out. I can move to that music, right? That's like metal. If I'm listening to like metal music. I don't eat those that metal music. I don't need to listen to things about the environment. I went one time to a one of those pay the fine. But that's what Coldplay spent the last three albums doing just trying to make your, Dan. So trying to make you think about well. That's their their latest stuff is better because they've been doing stuff with other people, but still just the guy from Coldplay, whatever his name is Chris. Yeah. That guy he's been okay lately because he's been collaborating with people, but the old stuff where it's just like whiny stuff. No, no, thank you. I went one time to one of those concerts that has a bunch of different bands. And who's the guy that was married to actually Simpson? Pete Wentz that guys fall out. Boy. Oh my God. It was unbearable every song. He was telling us something some sort of message was going on and giving like acceptance speeches and lectures between like every song. And it's listen Wentz. Shut up. Sing the song. You wanna hear? And I wasn't even there for wins. But he was the closing act. I left early. I think it's one of the only conscious that have left in the middle because I'm like I can. Out here. Pete wentz. Give me one more lecture about whatever's on his mind for ten minutes. Just give me the song. I'm with you on that fall out. Boy had some bangers though. They're good, man. Mike, I'm doing the math here, and it's nineteen dollars. These show aim free time for some at you can't touch me for roles and try to be pro. Yes. Fifteen dollars the only person that thought they but downloaded the YouTube album on their phone. And I realized that it just came with my fall it does. Yeah. I was like I was like how these songs get here. My car U2.'s playing and I'm like what the hell is going on. Who did this to me who hates me? And did this to me? And it's that they had some deal with apple either trying to scrub that charge for months, but it on the poll. Do you think you paid for you to donlevatar the Cleveland or hotel sits on a famous strip of land? And it's a party palace there. Sometimes these conventions that roll through here that are terrifying. Couple of weeks ago is the bitcoin people. Stugatz. They call the the events seventy thousand tons of metal. It's more than that. A lot of middleman. I mean, listen to me, ROY. I love Miami. That music has made me consider moving. You're talking about more. No. That these live at our show with this two guys on ESPN radio. ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance. Guests on the Dan Le Batard show appear via the shell Pennzoil performance line. Get triple action protection for optimal engine performance with shell the power nitro plus premium gasoline, and now your sportscenter update, the Phillies and Bryce Harper were nearing an end their negotiations, which could possibly be resolved by tomorrow. But now the dodgers have reengaged with interest in signing Harper to a short term deal. Some trades leading NHL trade deadline day include the sharks acquiring Gustav Nyquist from the Red Wings for two thousand nineteen second round pick in a conditional twenty twenty third round pick and the blue jackets acquired Matt Shane from the senators for Vitale Abromov Jonathan Davidson and Julius Bergman. And finally, but he me and rhapsody one more Oskar 's than the godfather for all the latest headlines and information, tune into sports center on ESPN radio all throughout the day that should have been a stat of the day. Mike, why are you making that? Just I mean everyone's making that face. When you compare it to the godfather, obviously, right, right? But some of the wards at one for editing. Did you watch this movie? I did watch the movie chop made my head spin. I enjoyed the movie I'm not saying it deserved more wards than the godfather. But I did I did a joy that movie. But he mean rhapsody I did and he did deserve Remmy Malik. He did deserve to win best act. Have you heard the hot takeout there? Billy, give them give them the take on the Bradley Cooper comparison because Roy's like super hot about this whole Remmy Malik thing thinking that he didn't deserve it. Okay. Here's what everybody thinks. Everybody's saying Remmy Malik should not have won the Oscar over Bradley Cooper because Bradley Cooper was actually singing and playing an instrument and Remmy Malik was lip synching, and he was pretending to play the piano to which I say isn't this an acting award because he's acting like he's singing he's acting like he's playing an instrument. So he's doing a better job of acting that someone who's actually singing playing an instrument. Yeah. And it's nearly impossible. I would say it's a great take it. Is a great day. Is it? It's a great take. Not a good take a great take. It's impossible to recreate, Freddie. Mercury's voice, though, it expected anyone to do that. Right. Adam Lambert certainly did not last night at the Academy Awards. You can't do it. I think it's the hardest thing to do in music right to recreate that voice of what Bradley Cooper. Did. He wasn't recreating anyone. They just made in the cliche. Rock store that looked like Eddie Vedder. I, you know, the movie was fine. A star is born it was fine. But he wasn't Bradley Cooper was out better. That Remmy Malik Bradley Cooper, probably should not even been nominated for best actor, a certainly very good. Looking guy though, I feel like Malik only one because of his physical resemblance to Freddie, Mercury. His teeth. This is a particular take. Well, he won the Academy Award based off of flip war. Right. He he's too. Like, let's be honest. He's a toothy, man. He was wearing prosthetics. He's not. Well, it's what it on the pole real teeth. Did Malik win the Academy Award for best actor because he's toothy. But that of the poll so you could just because he looked exactly like, Freddie. Mercury pretty much, right? That's correct. Nothing to do with the acting. No, not really it sell you at all. No. You didn't feel like you were actually watching Freddie Mercury. Now. I didn't find his accent to be believable even during the Live Aid seen really I mean, nothing nothing against Rummy. Malik, you know, seems like it gets Remmy Malik. I mean, not really I mean, honestly had never heard of him before he appeared in this movie. What does he done before is most known for mister robot, which is a TV show in the USA network. You want to that? Yeah. He's actually excellent in Mr. Rosie what mentioned that I've never seen that show either. So if he wins for looking lake him, then that would be a strike against him in my voting because you can't control if you look like someone or not, you know, what I mean. So like if you look like, Freddie, Mercury than you already have an advantage. And you're not act you don't need to act as much if you look like him already because you don't need to make it believable people the strike against him. If that's the case Kristen Bill should one for Bice because he had looked like the. Cheney. It's a good point. And and make up. He gained forty pounds for that rule. Yes. So it's not just by the way. They absolutely deserve to win the award for best makeup people from vice they did they were a little weird with the kind of orbit trae airy how they were stopping speeches was almost it depended on how long you could go depending on how long the previous person would go, right. I didn't enjoy it. Like, you need a host there. You need a host at the Oscars to make fun of Hollywood. If you don't have anyone making fun of Hollywood, then it's just Hollywood patent themselves on the back and who wants to see that. Honestly, that's why the war show was created the pet themselves in a back. Anyway, I know, but you always had the host of balance things out, the host would make fun of the actors, the host would make fun of you know, movies. Those would make fun of Hollywood. And if you take that away take that out of the equation, it just people walking up and accepting their wards balanced stupid. Excellent. Takes guts you. You like that day because I think a lot of people. Join my kids enjoy, but so it's tough because my kids they weren't Iran. Whenever year, there was someone hosting the Oscars. Right. They weren't around last year. They were watching you're paying attention last. This is the first year they've issue they were really into it. Yeah. They were old enough to see a lot of these movies that they went to see him. Right. And so and they had opinions. And they wanted to see Bradley Cooper when everything because they're in love with Bradley Cooper. But they they don't remember who the host was last year, they enjoyed last night's more. So than than any awards that they've watched simply because of how quickly it moved. And because Bradley Cooper, lady Gaga got up and sang together at up telling you these two should be ashamed of themselves. They are pulling the wool over. Everyone's is everyone thinks that these two aren't together it was a movie and the movies over and they're acting like they're thing. There are couple and everyone wants them to be together at I'm telling you. It's a wreck, Bradley Cooper's marriage. If he is indeed married. I have no idea. Okay. So. So it's it's girl. She is going to break up with him. If she hasn't done so already about that donlevatar never gonna stop. What I am. And I'm forty four years old. I ain't change. Stugatz changed. Now. It's worked. Here. I am. Sit next to you. Filthy rich, these live at our show with this to God's own ESPN radio wreck Odeon today. Dan is obviously all he'll be back in a couple of days here. He had the debut of his third television show yesterday is three shows three TV shows. Three three. Do. I sound jealous. I anyway, art of conversation debuted yesterday Riley was his I guess Pat Riley the heat team president Greg wants to talk about it. And I'm pretty certain the only to talk about it is to promote his column. Miami Herald eilly controversial. I would never do that. Controversial. Because Dan once again feels betrayed by Greg Cody the journalists Jerry does scoops Cody that is that is Dan at his finest what he did with Riley yesterday. I think that that is Dan that his best Riley is a very interesting subject to be able to sit down with an interview. And and so he's got great quotes for you. So what did you think what promote your column go ahead? But what did you think of of the entire episode? I thought it was great. And and I just tweeted out the the column linked if anybody wants to read it, I it was a terrific episode. I mean, it was it was can't miss an away because Pat Riley is so good. And so eloquent in laboratories, terrific interviewer as good as there is on air, and in the combination was was pretty magical Riley opened up. It was a very thoughtful in-depth personality profile as much as anything Riley got very emotional a couple of times, and you know, anybody who cares about the Miami, Heat or Pat Riley. Or or just good journalism. Should should check out that Harrison there there wasn't. There wasn't much in the way of news. Breaking there. Yeah. I think it really highlighted just out close lebatardshow Riley. Actually are there. Here's a real friendship and a real bond there. Oh, absolutely. Yeah. That's true. The only thing the closest there was to news was rally just being pretty adamant about saying that he's not even thinking of retirement of because he's chasing another championship. I don't think he'd ever said it in in that strong language before he's turning seventy four next month. So it's normal to wonder how long he'll be doing again. But he didn't sound like a man who was even thinking of of getting out anything to make fun of damn with was there anything maybe that I missed that. We can make fun of Dan fours. I watched pieces. He didn't watch it. I watched a little bit. Why are you saying you watch a little bit? You didn't watch anything. I watched about twenty minutes of it. I mean, I know the store. So you're saying right now, you watch two-third watched two-thirds of. Chicken. Do you watch it not even a third watch? Did you watch it from the start? When did you start watching? It was on a little bit late. I was trying to catch those hoping that you'd be like the very beginning. Chickens. I hope you miss the credits to God's ruffling feathers. But there are some thank yous in there. And I didn't notice your name there. I didn't get to the credits. Okay. Don't watch him. Don't watch. Well, what happened me getting angry? No, nothing. Nothing. Don't worry about it. It's all good. We were all thank you weren't dancing, including you. Don't worry. Don't even check it. He didn't like me. Not. Why would he think me? Why would he any of us? We had nothing to do with it. He had some people did stuff for very little, but yeah, we. Yeah. I mean compared to certainly did enough to get a special. Thanks. No, nothing. Friends wouldn't do further friends. Right. I what you do it. He sent us like the raw cut and we got the tone. What we thought was most interesting, right? He sent me that as well. Billy. What'd you do? Why I did the same? He sent us a lot a lot of footage. And we watch the food. Oh, he wanted feedback for that. Then there's some pickup. So we recorded a couple of time. Just nice things on. Thanks was not necessary. I would've thought I would've been thanked for all the publicity. I gave this thing. You know, the ratings skyrocketed because I went the appetite with what I wrote. Oh, Dan is so mad at Greg still so mad Greg put out an article in advance of the showing any proceeded to give away everything that was in the episode was just merely wedding an appetite scopes. That's right. That's a matter of conjecture, whether I gave away everything I just I just teased it, I made people want more. So he sent you the episode looking for feedback. What you did is. You took it as an opportunity to break news, right? Something in the herald about I'm proud of you. Thank you. How you do it which I thought of bullet points on every interesting ever interesting thing said in it. And then he said all he was doing was wedding the appetite, right, exactly. Well on the line right now. And he is furious with you. I don't think he's fear with me because he he expects the semi something for me to give him no feedback zero feedback. And he also does not expect me to watch that thing or retain any of it. If I do watch it furious at you. So Dan joins us right now. You various with Greg Cody. Well, this is the thing right people think they never know whether we're serious or not or whether it's a bit. And what I'm telling you, Alison vouch for this. Valerie will vouch for it that I was super angry yesterday morning. I'm in a hotel lobby. First of all guys. First of all, I am with Mike Tyson trying to do the second television show, and Cody is wearing me out requesting for me personally, send videos for the Riley thing while I'm talk while I'm talking to Tyson while he's like ten years sent me. This can cause you go. He doesn't ask for anyone else to help him. He goes straight to me. And I'm like, listen, I can't give you all this. Then I tell them to send me. Enticing when you get through. I don't use too much of it. And he's like what kind of idiot. Do you think I am? Why would I use too much of it? And then I'm reading in the morning on whatever it is that he distributed, and I just bullet point after bullet-point him revealing revealing things that don't leave anything in the piece that if you read the piece you'll read the piece, and you will not have to watch the special in any way. So I've having a me. Having a me. Valerie to me Valerie said to me, you can't say anything to Cody ever get. You can't just. You can't help him anything ever again. And Cody I'd love to hear how you defendant how I feel betrayed by. Valerie, by the way. How do you defend it? Well, first of all. Cody on the ESPN radio.

You'll never get signed station the same again. Hello there everybody. This is Jay here with the GSM. See Sifi podcast brought to you by the Jesus MC podcast network. So we got some really cool stuff to talk about this episode. Let's just jump right in. So I've talked a couple of times on here about a little show called castle. Vania? I've talked in the past if you know, I haven't really played the games. I remember I want to say as a kid playing one or two of them. And then being rather challenging I remember that you know, they were usually to decide scroll hours. It was I want to say in the game JC. It was Simon Belmont taking on Dracula and his horrid monsters. I wanna say they even the originals probably took place in Dracula's castle as the game series progress. There was a lot more games. I want to say they might even eventually stop focusing on just some in Belmont. I want to say. And. Yeah, like, I said the original games were released challenging really difficult. I think most of the game stayed to decide schoolers and the later more recent irritations MIDA made the jump to three d but like I said, I haven't really played almost any of the games except maybe like the first one or two. So it's been a very long time and the company company can NAMI has been behind. I think them since the beginning. They used to be on the intendo. I'm not sure if Nintendo now we're playing station. I just really don't know. But you know, it's a very popular series. It's you know, I wanna say generations of gamers have played it because it's been around. I want to say about twenty thirty years. Now, the first time we saw a Belmont in an animated series. And this I have not talked about before. And I just started watching recently again online is a show called captain end the game master. So for those that don't know they did, you know around the eighties early nineties. They did I Super Mario brothers super show which originally had the legends of the cartoon series, which did really well at first, but then didn't do so well when adventures linked came out, which if you've played that game understand why. And they decide to do like later. They did a Mario brothers three cartoon. They did Super Mario world, and they did a show called captain and the game master where they had some in Belmont in it. But someone Belmont. I don't think they did him Justice is going to kind of like, you know, jockey full who, you know, didn't really know what is doing and kept trying to get with this character that the other characters trying to get with. It was a really weird show, you know. And after that, we haven't really had anything Castleblaney related and tell. Well, I want to say they might have shown up in one of the more recent super smash two games. But I'm not really sure I didn't really play the last one too much. But anyways, so Netflix did about oh, God one or two years ago a castle Vena cartoon series as I said in the past the first episode first season only had for episodes. They're only about twenty seven minutes each and I'm not even sure if net Netflix believed much in the show at the time. But it, you know, fans really really liked it. It did really really. Well, it I think blue a lot of people way. Because like this was like, the kind of castle Vania they've been waiting for where you know, we get to meet, you know, Trevor Belmont, we get a meet Saif. We got him getting meet Alec hard toward the end Dracula and see why he's you know, so angry humanity, it's a very violent show, but it has, you know, mixed comedy and drama and some really cool. Things happen and season to you know, they they they announced pretty quickly. And they said it's gonna be w episodes can be eight episodes instead of for. I've talked about here on here in the past where you know it second season. I got watch. I really really liked it. There were a lot of really cool twists and turns there, I think eight episodes was better because it gave them a chance, you know, tell more around the story to expand in the story to kind of look at some different aspects of the story, we got to meet a lot of new characters which were you know? Dracula's generals. We got to see more Saif more Trevor Belmont more of his family history. We got to see like more Allah card, you know. And that he kind of had a little inward battle going on. We got to see that Dracula had to human generals, which both were alchemists. I think is the right word. I want to say that may not be the right word though. They might have been if they weren't alchemists they might have been well, they had some kind of power where they could bring back the dead. Right. And they kinda help make Dracula's army. So I don't know if alchemists is at the right word, they might use a different word on the episodes on the show in season two and season two just came to a close. And so there had been kind of some rumblings of heya season three might be coming from one of the voice actors. But there wasn't really anything written in stone says like, hey, this may happen fans hoped. It would happen. Heck, I would like to see it happen. Well, there's some. The good news on the castle Vini front. So just this last week net. Flicks. Finally, finally said okay castle Vania is getting a season three. So it is happening. It is going to becoming. I honestly think how season two went it makes sense to do at third season. And really all we know so far because this is just announcement. It's been on, you know, like Facebook and Twitter, and you know, and social media's and things like that. It's kind of like how some of these other previous ones goes I've said on here before you know, we know that we're going to get a season three. We don't know if it's gonna be four episodes episodes, twelve episodes, sixteen episodes. We don't know any of that. We don't even really know when it's gonna happen. But it's probably safe to say probably sometime next year. And yeah, like I said how the last season ended. It was definitely a little the refused surprises there. I didn't see coming like, okay. Didn't think they were going to do that kind of made sense for some things to happen. But it was still kinda surprising Alicarte is kind of like, you know, left. He's kind of like, you know, not sure what to do next. You know, Trevor Belmont and Sipho decide to go on their own. You know and see what's you know, what they can do next. So they decided to work to canoe work together. And of course, as I've said before one of, you know, count Dracula's generals kind decides to start their own little thing going on. So there gonna be that happening? But. Yeah. I think it's really cool that they've officially said this. So when you hear you efficient. Okay, means it's going to happen. It means you're are going to see it happen is the show has been cancelled. So that's great. And on the same note at least how season two ended. I don't know. Exact they could do passed a season three now mind you again, they said I haven't played of the game. So I believe in number the games. Dracula does come back a couple of times. So that so what we saw on season two doesn't mean that we're not going to see him anymore. I mean, remember he's a very powerful being. So I'm curious to see what season three's going to do. I love to know how many of us are going to be and I would like a potentially release because he when I said last week with disenchantment, we least know, hey, it's going to be two thousand nineteen two thousand twenty in two thousand twenty one we least know this. Whereas with this all we know is they're doing it. So Konami it's a good start. Thank you for letting us know, this is a fishery happening, but. Sooner than later. I would prefer to know more Radford. Okay. When where you know, how many episodes, so maybe even a basic idea the plot? I'd like to know that stuff but to be fair, it's probably a likely that. Hey, they maybe they started work on it yet. Maybe it's a possibility. So yeah. So that's really really cool news. And I I will say again, if you haven't watched this show, I would highly recommend you check it out on net. Flicks both seasons around there. Now, again, the only about twenty seven minutes each it's be prepared though. It is going to be violent. There's lots of violence. So just be prepared for that. If you aren't into lots of violence may not be the show for you. Or maybe you don't wanna watch it by yourself. It's a suggestion. But I'm but yeah. Like, I've heard really good things from fans across the board about they've done a real good job with the you know, the characters and the story and things like that. And yeah, I'm really I'm really curious to see what's going to happen next. And where they're gonna gonna accent. Heck for that matter. What either they're gonna take on next is it? Going to be Dracula is going to be someone else is there's me some new evil that comes up in his place as kind of previous cartoon shows have done if you get rid of a main evil doesn't mean there's no more evil. It just means another evil steps in to take his place. So yeah, that's all I have for that news of season three so far. And as more news comes out about it will be more than happy to bring it here for all of you. So we're take our selves a short little break now.

Visit GS MC podcasts dot com. For more info. Everybody. This is Jay back for more scifi news. So the next thing then talk about has kind of an interesting history going on around it. It's a movie that I think has been talked about coming out for a while. And I think fans wanted to see it for a while. I'm originally there was even talk at one time that sock baron Cohen who has been in movies like Sweeney Todd, and he did like borat, and he's been in that she a number of films really was gonna play this character. He was gonna play, Freddie. Mercury. And really at the time when you looked at them. It's like, hey, he looks like, Freddie, Mercury. I could see him playing for pretty mercury. We know he can sing. But something happened along the way where I think one of the bandmates still living balanced with like, yeah. No. He's not going to do that. I'm not gonna do that. That's just kinda how it went is like, well, no moss. So that for so it seemed like for a while I want to say even a few years ago that we were. Gonna get this movie. We're gonna get to see this story, and it just kind of fell apart upon itself in the last year or two it kinda gained some new life and was coming around again. And if you're wondering what this foam is if the anticipation is killing you this movie is Bahia mean rhapsody now what is Bahamian wrap. See what's basically a Queen biopic. It really more focuses on, Freddie. Mercury. You know? And it's got Remmy Malik playing, Freddie. Mercury which I have to just applaud I think it's an amazing casting choice. I wasn't sure about it at first like, you know, what I haven't seen Remmy Malakand too much. Yeah. He was in twilight breaking breaking dawn, part two. Yeah. He's on mister robot, which I've heard is a really good show. But I don't really personally I didn't really personally know much of what he was in. So it's like, well, I don't know if he's a good choice or not. I just don't, you know? It's just the reality. There's a really cool Cameron this movie with Mike Myers. I will get into he plays a character. I think it was. Really, really fun. But so this movie basically follows Queen from their start from their humble beginnings like their rise to the top all the way to them playing it Live Aid. It's about a two something our movie like I want to say almost two and a half hours. But it didn't drag on it really did. And it was one of those movies. Like, man, you just kind of it was one of those -biotics where it gripped me. And it just didn't let go and I didn't want it to make. I just love how they did the movie like Remmy Malik does a great job. Look like, Freddie. Mercury. He can sing really really. Well, you know, they have a bunch of scenes where they like they do a bunch of really great songs. It was kind of cool. See how the band originally came together? It was really kind of cool to see that to see a bit of, you know, Freddie, mercury's, you know, home life. You know, where he was going at first. You know, how the band came together? There's some really cool scenes about like, you know, they do we will rock you. And also, it does look like, you know, Freddie. Mercury sexual -ality. Just does it's kind of a part of the story. And it's really cool to just see what I got. It was so much good about this movie. Where do I even begin? So it starts I there's one really cool moment on I talked about Mike Myers where he plays one of their producers for one of the record labels at one point. And the big moment comes to they do, you know human rhapsody, the actual song, and, you know, the record company, and you know, Mike Meyers character is believe character believes that. Well, the song is too long. It's a seven minute song. There's no way people are gonna listen to it. It's too long. It's not going to do. Well, it's gonna bomb. It's just what's going to happen. They pretty much refused to play it. They refuse to make lake. You know, the top saw one of the top songs on the record. And he's just like nobody stations ever gonna play it. Right. So what's going to happen? And there's a funny history about this on where it at first didn't really do that. Well, it didn't you know, and a little movie in the nineties that Mike Myers happened to be in. You know makes makes a joke about it. Which is basically the gist of it is he says, you know, well, you know, what do you think someday kids you'll be the sentence in this car in their cars, head banging, I mean, I don't see that happening. If you've seen Wayne's world, you know, that's exactly what happens. And so the little history of that song is, you know, Mike Myers when they were getting ready to shoot Wayne's. What was like I wanted to do this song? And they're like, we don't know if you do that song. I don't think it's going to do well on. I think he got to a point. I've heard where he was ready to walk. He's like you either. Let me do Baheen rhapsody in this scene and trust me or no more movie for me. So they're like, okay fine. You can do human rap seeing that scene when you're all on the mirth mobile and listening to it fine. You can do it. Go ahead, and a few funny things happened one is it's I think in my opinion, one of the more I- conic scenes from the movie where Wayne and Garth and all his friends. You're listening to this song and singing to it. And you know, head banging. And just having an absolute blast. And what it also did was it put this song back on the charts that scene in the mood in this movie. Put this song back on the charts. I want to I don't know if it's shot it to number one. But it put it on the charts people like going listening. They were listening to this song. Again, they were rocking out to this song. Again, I think it actually helped the popularity of the song. So there's so we see like number of the scenes in this movie where you know, how Queen Lincoln comes about how they you know, like I hit after hit. And you know, where they're getting bigger and bigger eventually comes out to like, you know, where? Yeah. His sexually and what's going on with him and his orientational? There is a part in this film. You know with the whole aids thing going on. So that is a part of the story. It's not a huge part. But it's there, and yeah, there's just a lot of really good music. There's a lot of really cool moments. I mean, I think Live Aid is one of the most amazing parts in the whole movie. And really like, you know, even though they don't have come. This movie reminded me of Rayan just a sense of how well. Music will be of a biopic. It was how well it flowed. How it didn't drag on him though? It's a little bit long. They chose the cast very well. They just chose the way the movie was going to go from start to finish. Really, really? Well, it flowed wonderfully there were parts where I just laughed. I loved like certain parts are doing their parts of dislike thought, we're amazing. There were parts that really stood out to me the scene like we're there. I come out with we will rock you. It was really really cool because they show, of course, there were moments with the band where you know, like some people it wasn't full credit. K the person wrote the song guy credit person this credit person did that gut credit, and it was kind of something that was an issue with the band in the early days, it seemed as movie shows. And so so what happens is, you know, like, they're kind of like arguing like, you know, about like, whatever. And then like, you know, they they like the guy starts the guitar riff for, you know, our starts I going to do because like they wanna find when it comes to we will rock you. They wanted to kill. Let's get the audience involved. We want. Audience like, you know, to like, you know, when they're listening to this. We want them to have something to do. Right. So that's kinda point like their idea behind this. And we get to see some cool moments like that was number different songs. And you know, we get to see the band like kind of like, you know, have a falling out for a while and get back together. And you know, like the character, Freddie, Mercury. Really gross. You know, and kind of like accepts his fate toward the end. You just kinda does. He's like, hey, you know, what I know that I'm going to, you know, not be here forever. But I also know that our enjoy the time I have left, right. And yeah, it was to me. It was it was one of the best buy picks I've seen since Ray. And I just keep bringing that one up because that one stands out to me, really, really. Well, right now, he doesn't everything going for it. Like Ray did they didn't like I, Freddie. Mercury. Didn't get to choose. I want this guy to be me. That's not what happened. But. Yeah. But it's a really really good song a movie I mean, and you don't really necessarily have to be a fan of Queen to enjoy it. I don't think. So I know I'm a fan of the band. I like, and what's really funny about Queen to me as. A lot of their songs you've probably heard you may not have known. You've heard them. If you've seen happy feet. There's a lot of Queen songs in there. There's a couple of Queen songs, you wouldn't know as this the reality. You know, there's some such I didn't even know Queen. Did this song? This just the way it is because I'm a kid eighties nineties. Okay. Sadly when I came on this earth Queen was still around. But they just like, you know, they weren't they were kind of like, you know, it just wasn't like growing up. I didn't hear Queen everywhere. It's just the truth. You know? And until of course, Wayne's world, you know. But, but yeah, like, it's a ban that you've probably heard their songs probably more songs than you would think because it's a really kind of ban. They have a lot of really iconic songs, and they've been in a lot of movies and TV shows and things like that, you know, Knight's tale has some Queen songs. Like, I said happy feet has some Queen songs. Heck like the Mighty Ducks movies made ducks to has a Queen song. The so they're everywhere you've probably heard them before. And I would highly recommend this movie. I think it's just an amazing wonderful movie. I have a hunch it's going to do. Well. And like I said, it's just it was probably one of the better musical music biopic. Bio-pics I've seen in a while they did everything right here. And I would just highly recommended. It was really just you know, Bravo, very, very good. I had a lot of fun watching it. Now gladly watch it again. So we're gonna yourselves another short little break here.

But I think I'm going to maybe start doing it is I'm going to bring a book to this. I fight podcast, and it's actually from a series of books, and it's a book that I really just stumbled upon oh, I want to say a couple of months ago, maybe even earlier this year. So and it's and it's something that's been re released recently. It's something that is not necessarily a brand new book. And I guess it's a series of four books. I've had a chance to read three of them. Now. Actually, that's wrong. I have only read two of them so far. I have a third I hope to read. So. So there is this book that came out. I want to say in the fifties or sixties by ruthven tied called space cat. And so with the first book focuses on is there's this cat like, you know, who sneaks into this little lake, you know, rocket station, and you know, stinks on starts working around there and hanging out there and getting taken care of their and things it's in charge of the place. It's not. But this is what it thinks the cat gets the name fly ball. It was originally. You know, like just a stray that they kind of take it in. You know, it gets captain, Fred I believe is. You know, what he starts, you know, kinda working long with and the first book, they go to the moon, and you know, it's like, we're he has a space suit on and they travel there, and there's like and there's parts like, you know, where there he's in zero g and they see some interesting animals. Creatures and things like that. Right. So that's what the first book mainly focuses on the second book is called space cat visits. Venus wear, you know, captain, Fred and fly ball going visit Venus, and you know, and see a bunch more interesting creatures and beings and things like that in their space, suits and stuff like that. So that was a book I didn't get chance to read yet. I wanted to base didn't get a chance to and then there's a third book in this series. I just recently read this last week, and this is called space cat meets Mars. So what happens from the first book to the third book is after NAMI from the second book to the third book. Forgive me is you know, they're coming back to earth like the the are starting to lose power. And they have to kinda like emergency land on Mars, and they find out during the day that at least in this book in the world of this book series that during the day there is oxygen on Mars meaning. You don't have to go around spacesuit right bits only during the day. Yeah. You know, if you don't get back to the ship before nightfall, you know, it's gonna all turn into like, you know, not oxygen anymore. It's going gonna be really dangerous. And so and they have to they had to land. Because like like their engines are gung up. So well, you know, captain, Fred is trying to, you know, clean up the engines of fly ball decides just explore around the planet. See what he can see there's you know, giant mushrooms. There's giant bugs there's a weird metallic mice that he tries to catch and play with. And he finds out why can't really eat them. But I guess I can play around with them one of the days he because there for a couple of days where they're trying to clean up the well, he's trying to clean up the engine and one of the days. He sees this little like, you know, fish like in this like ocean like this will like lake and they're kinda blowing bubbles at him. And then one day he runs into a really strange thing. Something that he didn't expect to see their something that really blows his mind. And it's another cat. It's a cat on Mars. If you can believe that it's a female cat. Her name is Moussa memory serves me, and you know, any finds out like, wow, they're so there's technically another me here. I didn't expect to see something like me here at all. He saw it a few days before. But he thought it was just his eyes playing tricks on him, right? And. Yeah. So like, you know, he explores the planet a little bit him and move on a few adventures together. She shows them not to catch the fish there. She tells him, you know, that I think I'm the last of my kind here. I don't think there's any more me around. Sadly, I think I'm the last one there's one point where a storm comes that fly ball and his human didn't see coming. And she helps helps them by, you know, having him hide in a cave where they can, you know, there's plenty of oxygen and there and they can be safe until they write out the storm. Right. And as the story comes to a close, you know, and the and the engine gets ungoverned up, you know, a fly ball is permits hanging like to master. He like meows saying smash look right final take move with us. So at the end of the story, you know, move and fly ball. Are going to be in the ship with Fred. And I believe they're hanging back to earth. Now is what's going to happen? And I have to say, you know, I really like this series of books so far there there have they have some really cool illustrations as the story goes along there about eighty to one hundred something pages, usually they're not super long. They're mostly from Moore like young readers. But yeah, they've they have fascinated me. So far, you know, it's I don't think it's just because I'm a cat person. But I've really liked them. So far, I've had a lot of fun reading them. It's kind of interesting where like, you know, I never really know. What's going to happen next? It's just the way it goes fly balls are really cool character. You know, like a Fred is a really good character. And I believe that his name is captain, Fred. And just the adventures they've gotten to go on so far. I've been really really cool. I've really enjoyed them. I'm kinda glad he's Bush got released. 'cause if they hadn't I probably never would have read them in the first place. That's just the reality. You know? It's just the way it is. The entire four series is space cast the first one space cat been visits. Venus is the second one. Then their space cat meets Mars. I think the last one is space kittens, I think is what it's called or space cat in the space kittens, something like that. So that's I believe like, you know, the final book in the series, and yeah, it's just like, I think if you're a cat person, you should absolutely raises read the series looking for a fun little sci-fi book to read odd recommend it. And yeah, it's kind of a fascinating little story like little series of books. It really is some kind of bummed. There's only four of them. I kind of wish there have been more. But what I've read of it so far I've really really enjoyed is this kind of been like it's each one segment of fascinating fun little journey. And like I said like you get to see kind of some things that you wouldn't expect like to see on some of these different planets, right? Just the way it is. And it's always been fly ball who's been the explorer so far and fly ball. You know? It's just this. Simple cat. You know, who knows that? He's in. Portent? He knows that. He's getting to do this before anyone else. He's kind of the first cat on some of these planets and him and Fred get along. Really? Well, they kind of have a little partnership at this point by the third book. They see each other as partners. It's not like fly ball goes. Hey, no. I'm your boss. And you know, you get to do what I do and make me happy and help me do what I wanna do know he at this point, he realizes Kate. We're partners in this. You know, we've gotten to travel to plans together, so far we're gonna end up traveling third unexpectedly and exploring it, and you know, he sees them as more of a friend and a companion a partner. Not just, you know, someone who takes care of me and feeds me, and you know, and Ben Smith every will write this not what he sees MS anymore in the first book, he kinda did seem that way. So yeah. So this book got re released recently, I believe you can find out like, Amazon and Barnes and noble and places like that October seventeenth and the final book in the series. I believe is going to come out sometime this month. So yeah, how they recommend that series. Check it out. I think it's good for you know, young readers thing is good for, you know, just like cat lovers. Sci-fi lovers and people wanna read a fun little story that isn't superbly long. Like, I said it's only about maybe eighty to one hundred something pages. So yeah, it's an absolutely fun book. I really enjoyed it. And I'm looking forward to reading the next one the series. So other than that. That's all we have for you this episode. Hope you had had as much fun as I had. And we will definitely talk again real soon with more fi news.

I can't imagine what the winters feel like. I'm sure they party hard. I just sat on the couch and during wine. And with the bed way past time Zoar that we'll get to that. I the news have a lot of news at ten o'clock. Yes. So the members of the monkeys are now down to two. Peter Tork was a member of the monkeys passed away at the age of seventy seven. Oh, apparently he's been ill for quite a while. Actually. Yeah. Fighting cancer for a decade. No. But. He was still very active up until really recently. So I I was very fortunate. I got to go to the. The the anniversary tour, so I got to see at least the show that I went to here in Indy. It was just petering. Mickey. Mike did not show up for that particular one. So it was just the two of them. But still it was very very glad that I got to see Peter. In that. So I know Mickey and Mike actually doing kind of like a mini toward two. Starts later this week. I think actually in good March. I as one of their first dates, but yeah, I I remember discovering my mom's vinyl. Monkeys records in her collect John and listening to them on a record player because I was cool like that grownup. And no see you did you history each with the Nicot Nate. And then yes, the reruns of I don't remember I discovered the violence the TV show. I my guess is discovered the vinyl probably first. And then once I, you know, regularly started going to Grandpa's who had cable, and I grew up on dick night. That I probably discovered the TV show, and you could find I don't think you could find I don't know if he'd necessarily find the entire series, but I you can find episodes on YouTube YouTube, and I do happen to have the first the only two seasons. They do happen to have those on DVD. So they are out there. I still think the are in print. Got those that tool lovable TV shows just find it's still the plotlines are just pointless. There's there's there's no real hot. It's yeah. It's just it's just a lot of just them getting into wacky situations. And usually some sort of montage of something happening while with. Yeah. There's usually music videos with a little bit of plot in between to connect the music videos. I'm saying quite they actually haven't seen. AD really you could just pick one at random on YouTube. Story about whether you're watching him in order anything. New monkeys pauses a monkey pas a good one. And then the fairytale Assode. So. Sad. Thankfully, his music both with the monkeys largest kind the TV series and their movie, which I've never seen talk about weird movies. The TV show was weird. Go ahead. Ed, Dax steak sit about ten steps. Remember the air that it was made in. Yes. We don't condone drug use. But some of these things probably were better consumed under the Enslow. We're talking book ins head yellow submarine. Feel Burris got a plot. You can. Yes. That's what I that's what I'm getting at the sit in spectrum. It may still be more fun to watch under the influence. Even if you're not you could follow us happening. Exactly. Yes. Yes. Instead of having to hit to be wine, but in the few times, and then just shrug your shoulders and give up an go on. Yeah. Yeah. I've seen bits of head. I've seen enough to know. It is very weird. So there is fats. And then really our only other piece of news is some convention nouncement for Salt Lake panics, very jealous of Dilip, both when of Jellison more of one over the other. I do not like you at the moment. Just kidding. She today. Suspi paso. I remember that ISIS we fought civil. Possible. So with love. They're getting two members of the marvel cinematic universe. I in the form of Paul bitney, aka vision, aka Jarvis. And then my favorite person on the entire placement in the MC you yes, Colson himself Kerr hill. We call him Phil Clarke, Greg. I've so yell as. Jealous. Oh, I have he's going to be a car Grayson see to two as well. And it's going to see TV too. And I'm like. Sign your pocket. Certainly can be your push one. I wanna go to Chicago but Clark drag. I love him. Colston's white favorite. Don't tell Robert Downey junior that I don't think he'd mind. Percents agent. Feel. Still hoping before all this is said and done that he in Colson get some sort of reunion. Yeah. I think Tony needs to needs to know deserves to know that he's still alive. And well, yeah. It's really I think it's really just ABC's worst kept secret from the avengers. Like, if any of pay attention to the news or Eddie, you know. They they would they would see a certain agents. Like, he went on the news in one episode. Full foreign like sitting there in the suit. Like, I I'm still Colson. Unless fury somehow did some major gca report Korie was. Highly doubt that. I mean, honestly at this point. I don't think any even would be that surprise considering fury supposed to be dead too. Sure. So. They're both looking pretty good for an spry for dead guys. Yes. Exactly. Even more. So a couple of weeks ago. Kent Moore who do. Yes. And that's really it for the news. It was it was really quiet probably because there is that big award ceremony. People busy. This. BTC pity? Oh, next up some feed back got some feedback from Shelly. She says I am happy that Ralph freaks internet infers to our Disney featured films instead of going direct to video. Yes. Us too. Like other sequels Disney is done. It's like, I'm not saying those were banned films. She likes most the sequels like lying to low mermaid to honest too. But they weren't necessarily as good as their predecessors. Which is why they went direct to video it won't be direct to video. We mean video cassette. Retry on all through those on videocassette, Debbie. The key to a wtam about one. Yes. You had a good childhood one. You had a collection of Disney movies that came in the white. Classic clam shell case. Yes. It is had that set assign what? Yup. In that plastic keys, strong, classically snow. Yeah. Although as you got older, you had to be careful because over time the plastic would wear and tear to get very sharp. Yes. Oh, yeah. Oh, yes. She did. It says the show is that she's been watching on Hulu are the ABC TGIF shows like boy meets world and home approve it long small Nickelodeon shows from her childhood this. He suggested we should talk about our favorite Nickelodeon shows and toon Disney. Disney channel shows from back in the day. Believe us we will get around to that eventually. It is on the on the. I have to go back into a little research into try to explain some 'cause yeah, I've seen some that. We haven't seen. Yes. There were some weird ones out their own. Yes. Yes. It's like, you know, boy meets world was crate family matters was great. Yes. You're one of the shows great. But just wait till we get to talking about this particular subject fatter, and I have to tell you all about teenage will. It wasn't on for very long south is good. And the premise to was a little bit of a head scratcher like that guy. Green lit. Yep. But the kid playing the angel was cute earliest I thought so at the time. So yes, yes. He was cute at during. Yes. Yes. I don't know if I'd feel the same now. Yes time. Yes time. Yes. I I watch that. Sitting here having kind of no ideal. Oh, you're going to be in for a treat is. So yes chalet. Nickelodeon CIs all of those are on the list. So. We'll probably have to break them up. Like just the TGIF shows like just Nickelodeon, maybe Nick junior. I will fully mitt. I watched blues clues until I was sixteen. So. And I watched guide caught for the booze clues. And I was a little bit older. You know, babysitting duty you ju-, whatever. Well, at least I wasn't babysitting. I purposely watching Blue's clues. Okay. I'll I'll give. Yes. I did watch intentionally God hat attention when I didn't have babysitting duty either. Yes, a meal song. Thank you shall lane for that. We also have don't from Chrissy, but it's a bit spoiled. So. Yes. You're good. Minutes. No, worry, Chrissy. We'll we'll get your get your part of the conversation in there. So. But we're gonna get well, we'll get to that in a moment. So. Speaking, which segue. If you've missed. If you missed if you went to bed at a decent hour last night. Yeah. Which if you're west coast that's not that big of a deal anyway because it starts at five pm for them. Right. If you're in central. Your time. Your or your Livia Coleman's children. And it's the middle of the night in London. You were kinda lame. Yes. Watching the Kennedy awards. The ninety first Academy Awards which last night. So and I had quite fun, especially considering I got to go to a watch party. So I was watching myself. Always apply. Fhu. Matt from Bergamo, this whole hosted people. So it was met and his two dogs. Who did not know when I showed up that I was already immune to doggy Jewish guilt. When I have a plateful sued. Yes, it's tried as hard as they could. Do they do the the floor? Pouting eyebrows. You know, no more just looking at me like give me something. So event Ben from recommend this call and then Wes and his wife girlfriend. I'm not really sure. I got there like. A half an hour before the show is was the start. So they were in the middle of cooking grilling burgers on the grill like. I showed up and grab plate of food food and set down. So Chauncey showed up low later. Though. Most the spark of madness. And then Johnson, I representing the five ashamed girls. To sit and watch the show. So. And of course, we were all Well Matt was doing the like scoring for them. Well, he's doing the scoring for every, you know, for both teams, essentially, then you know, I I had our sheets with our guesses. So I was keeping track as well. And it was it was it was it was close there for a little bit. And I'm not entirely sure. What points a significant change on happens? But there was a definite surge at one point in one team surged ahead and stayed there and eventually had gotten far enough ahead that there was no way that the other team was going to catch up. No matter what. And the winner the winning team at the end of the night was. I'm actually kinda surprised out of the twenty four categories. We got fourteen of them, right? So as a as a team to their eleven with the team picks. So that is a pretty impressive. I did some number crunching to just to see how we did is individuals because not that we're doing anything as far as individuals spark abandoned, does they they also could Pete individually against each other the trophy in their their video that they made, you know, challenging us that is the grouch and that is their their trophy for the individual winner, and Colin what last year and this year, they had a three way tie. Between Matt Colin and Ben they have the three way tie for the individual. Collins going to figure out how to get all three of their names on the Joe fee. Oh, and for us actually is individuals Britney and Chrissy tied with your individual picks. You both got fifteen right. Wow. I got fourteen right and Holly got twelve Chauncey got five. That's. So and then over all the overall ballads. Out of the twenty four categories at least one of us on our team of the five of us at least one of us picked the right winner in every category except for two. Wow. Impressive. The only categories. No one picked not a single person. Picked right was adopted screenplay and best picture. Wow. And this picture a lot a lot of people did not pick. Because I think that was surprise. It was three. And there was there's a little bit of a controversy. Hind. The there's a bit of controversy behind a lot of these movies. And it's it's kind of interesting. Where people have decided that the controversy is gotten more attention from some over the others, but we can discuss that that being said, we'll get into a crissy's feedback. Now, a so because her her subject line in the Email was we are the champions. So she says alot, my lovely co-host. Sadly, I'm scheduled to work tonight and unable to join in the recording. But I just wanted to send in an probably silvery Oscars victory. Pops bubbly. Like in here. I would start playing the song, we are the champions. But that would probably get our YouTube post taking down. Yes. It would pretend. I did. And we'll be just fine. I haven't seen my head all day. Yeah. She says back to watch the YouTube clip of Adam Landry performing with Queen. Yes. The opening number from last night, you're golden. She said seriously serious who would have thought that we would guess the best talk your injury short correctly Vall. Thanks. Yes. Yeah. Definitely helped. I all of us wasn't that the one to be all picked, right? Held it except for Chauncey. Jess right onto something else that I think we're all dislike. It sounds good. Yeah. She said, I certainly didn't think so whatever setting up that Darbar to make by picks. I would like to extend to think you to the guys at spark about this for throwing down the garland and making this year's Oscar experience. Much more tolerable than it usually is for at least all of us. I think is saying who knew that a little friendly competition. It's a good natured trash talking. When it hits your typical Oscar viewing good gay guys. Anyway, were awesome. This was a lot of fun. I'm looking forward. I probably wouldn't say no to rematch next year. Just saying, oh, no. We've we've already savage it. We'll be rash. Exter- nice. Yeah. Chrissy NPS. We are the champions real champions. No time for losers because we are the champions of the world. Okay. I'm going to stop now. Vilely? Oh, Amy, what's because we are the winters. We are the champions. That means spark Amandus has to reveal a movie of our choice. The kept asking last night. Well, before we realized that we had wind. It's like, I'm not pretty cart before the war. Some like I'm not going to catch. It gets before they hatch. That and because we also had a list. Entirely. Sure, which we've we're still not tireless sure which movie so. Daiwa planning on giving us. Nope. I guess I'll keep that keep that in their pockets for next year. I guess. So, but I told him that we would take dollars in a draw one out of a hat. So that's what I've done got them written on strips of paper in an hat. Before I do that. We will go through the the movies that are in the hats, it kind of worked out because one of the movies. It was suggested is not available anywhere. So once we because I went through, and there's a website where you can pull in movies and TV shows, and it'll tell you where it's available. Nice. So it's kind of like a dedicated search engine just first streaming services. So I went in plug goes in, and they there was one that was just not available and knee where so once I discarded that from list kind of like the academy we have ten. Like the most fixture category up to ten we've got dead. So the movies that are in the hat that we shall be picking from in. No particular order are airborne from nineteen Ninety-three starring Shane McDermott, Seth green and Jack black. I've got descriptions here got little synopsis so for people that don't know don't recognize movies Mitchell ghosts in is a teenage kid from California loves to surf and rollerblade yet.

It's it's supposed to be dark comedy. It's not that. It's dark. I don't know if it's funny. I discovered this over the holidays. It was on the TV at my laws, and I was just watching it like what the hell watching. There's a dead body in suitcase and a dog that keeps changing. Hans and John candy's climbing at a window. What is going on here? It just it was dumb. There's a lot of really familiar what it seemingly should be funny people in it. But just individually, they're funny.

If anyone wants to watch this or you have much a while you can buy energy base on PlayStation, Appalachians voodoo, Google play movies. It's also down for download rent on PlayStation apply. Tunes voodoo Google play in YouTube. So there. All right that being said. Let's move on to the Academy Awards and our thoughts on how the awards wets overall before we get into the individual winners. What do you what did you think of the overall show? From what I saw my power came that guys. I enjoyed it. Sounds like I missed most of the woman. I can't really compete because I've never really watched it before the clips, but like. Is it kind of what I expected like the speeches some the speeches. I kind of expected what they was going to say knowing what I know which is not. In some the costume. It's pretty outrageous. Like, I think you missed Holly. But Melissa McCarthy came out if she. Just like Worrell the down with Ravitz all over it. I see a picture of that. Apparently, there's a scene with rabbits in the favorite. Really what should 'cause we tween her? And the other guy there's supposed to be wearing at least something representing the different costumes from all the costs to because they did the best cost you she? I think what the favorite. Pretty much top to bottom. And then her co presenter. Covered everything else. So because he had like Mary Poppins hat on. They had like the face makeup was from Black Panther. So. So, but that was that was pretty funny. So the I like when they have fun with the presenting like, I one of my favorites was because they have someone come out 'cause they always liked to put a big spotlight on the best picture nominees. So they have somebody come out and talk a little bit about the movie, and then they show clips from the movie just to remind people that these are your best picture nominees and for human apps. They got Mike liars data Carvey. Wayne's world that was so we was sitting into audience or like. I'm going to hurl hurl, all blow chunks chunks. I'm as few. Therefore, I shall not hurl. That was great. It was it was bringing back childhood memories. Yes. That was pretty awesome. Yeah. Oh, and they did all of the best original songs performed except for all the stars. Apparently. There is a scheduling issue with kinder- goal mar supposedly. But it was it was fun to see them get performed. I thought that that midler very child with the place where lost things go. And man did show. Yes, they went because 'cause what all the other performances that he did like projections. Like, scenery and stuff. So like Jennifer Hudson saying all fight for Rb RBI like they projected like the outside of this prem- court building. And all this stuff, you know, like images of repair Ginsburg and civil rights and all that and Bette midler singing, you know, they had like kind of the sky with Mary Poppins. Umbrella like hope of him hanging the background and the one from BUSTER Scruggs redressed in western wear. And you know, look like they were on a on a. On a ranch or something with tumble bees, and that sort of thing, but with shallow they really really kind of treated it like it was a scene out of the movie. Exactly it was just about to where you were you were at a concert. And it was a league got Bradley Cooper. It was Allie. Jack. Exactly performing this. It's just they were dressed up. A lot nicer than would been the star sport. Oh, yeah. Yes. So they they literally came up out of the their seats in the audience of to the piano, and you know, he started saying, and then she said out of Pia and start playing and saying her part, and it was just it was very cool. The way they did it, and they lit everything. So that the the audience you can see their faces. So it could have been a crowded anybody could have been at a concert somewhere. It said if it being. Yeah. You know, it that could have been just anybody, except you know, I knew that was Chris Evans right there in the front. Somebody had a shot from the stage with lady Gaga and everything was kind of dark and back. Can you stop Brian me in this picture? And of course, you can be. Yeah. The here like isn't that luscious ethic main occur era? It may have gone grade that still got an all. If there were I think if there were other awards to be given out that night, they how who was it crap. I should have written it down. It was best. I think best rock and roll face would have gone to. I think it was a heavy are bar down. When Queen was performing at the very opening. They would they kept going to the audience, and there's this shot. I think it's heavier burden where he is just he is like, yeah. And a rock concert. I mean, Jennifer Lopez I think even Queen Latifah just yes. Yeah. Glenn qualif-? It was just like, okay. Yes there. They were all just they were all just having a blast. So. That that was that was quite fun. I did not. I think the fact that there was no host helped. I think so too. I like, I think it went faster it. Yeah. Because there wasn't too much of an overlap. Yeah. It's just. So you don't have to worry about skits or anything it was just let's get to the next award. You know, if you wanted to do a little stick presenting the award like Muslim McCarthy did or Keegan Michael key did before that Miller's performance where he came out of the rafters with the umbrella. You know, they could do something like that. But you didn't have to worry that actual. There have been some bits. You'll like Ellen Degeneres ordering pizza in doing the selfie with five million celebrities, and it's you know, you can have some fun stuff like that. But it does it adds time to the show, and you know, with the acceptance the award acceptances, supposedly they're only supposed to get two minutes. But you get to certain point depending on who I think is just I think invasion, call audibles, depending on who the winner is because they're very obvious that some people got way more than two minutes. So yeah, I think Livia Coleman did. But I mean, her reaction, she's a first time winner, and it was so. Oh, yeah. I it was so lovable. Yeah. Who would be shock and awe and own. My gosh, this is actually athlete. Yeah. Well, even even the people that, you know, this isn't their first rodeo they won before like fouls. Corogne you walked away with three last night. But this these are not his first Oscars. He's one two already three actually to to that lease that I know of he went to in two thousand fourteen you one for a gravity. He won best director for that. And then won best picture. I think so the these are not his first Astor's, but you got up there. And he was yeah. Not like super bouncing off the walls excited, but you could tell his genuinely happy to have one. You know, you've got some others. You know, where you could just see I just love you could see on their face when they are genuinely surprised and. Yeah. Happy that they that they won. So. There are some very very exciting reactions. You'll lady Gaga, you know. Shallow one. You know, just the look on her face, which is absolutely horrible live comb when she wine, Regina king. Even though she's been tearing it up the entire ward season. She was still just you know shot. Yeah. Spike Lee, you know, in in good in good uncapped for helping her up. Yes. Escorting her up to the best courting her up. And when he came out to present, whatever it is. He he came out to to present that you know, he was holding on the to the arm of was Sarah Paulson. No, that's all Rudd Paul road was a surplus and who is who is. Chris Evans, presenting. I don't remember that whoever remember the way he was what he was holding onto her arm in the way, he was holding himself. He is Steve Rogers. He is captain freaking America. Yes. I. I. Chris in Robert Downey junior. You do not know where their characters end and where they themselves begin. Yeah. Pretty much. I've come to that conclusion pretty much. Yes. I love the the joke when Paul Rudd Paul Rudd came out to present his work because I think the best visual effects. Yes. And is there Poulsen said something about you know, how it makes something? Yeah. Talking about, you know, some referencing something like the they're able to recreate the Live Aid performance or something like that with visual effects and Paul roads. Like an can make me look like an actor. Make you think that I am an actual actor. Like, I'll Paul read. Everybody loves Paul Rudd. Not just in beer commercials. Your treasure. Oh, yeah. I honestly I think they could go without a an actual host. And I think they would be fine. It's going to be interesting to see what the numbers come up for ratings. Yeah. This is opposed other years with hosts. Yeah. We'll be interesting. Oh, so let's get to the actual words. So in our case not only did documentary short help but voting the Queen ticket street Queen ticket helped us a lot especially in the sound editing emission category. Oh, those technical categories helped us a lot. Black panther. Yes. Black Panther health allot to there's a I kind of agreed with Sean when he posted on Facebook afterwards less I where 'cause Glendon winning. But Sean it said something about voting with my head. Instead of my heart would have done better. I think would have gone the same way for us in some categories. 'cause especially the ones were like, well, the kademi usually really loves period pieces. And there's a couple that we burned ourselves on a couple that we burned our hands. Think if we'd given black Black Panther just a bit more faith. And gone with our hearts with those that we would have eked out a few more a few more right guesses, but GAC costume design ended biting in the blood. Because I see us had Black Panther. No, actually, you were the only one that I would feel like panther for costume design. Oh. Interesting the favourite, right? I think I did I yeah, I've been gone with Mary Poppins returns. So in that are to coin tosses one of them worked in our favor. The other didn't it helped us for supporting actor because it did end up going to her Shaw Shali, but the coin ties and burning us because between Glenn Close Livy Coleman, and we chlorine with Lynn close. So. But yeah, there is there's another one that. After that one help does. Yes. Documentary short helped documentary feature after the fact more I was reading and getting to know the the nominees if we could've I would have changed. I would have tried to fight to change our picked a free solo. It's the closer. It got to yesterday like free solo. I think is gonna win that. So. My my my gut was going. Yeah. You probably picked wrong in and we did. But that's okay. There were there were several where we were our individual picks. We were almost across the board. We were three out of four for supporting actress all four of us were on board ram Malik, of course. And I fight me. Do not try don't ask me, bro. Do exactly. Remmy Malik deserves that award regardless any regardless of the other issues that people have with Indian rhapsody. He owned that part. Yes. He granted. I have not seen that attorneys gate and supposedly William to fo does four Vincent Van Gogh. What growing Malik did for, Freddie? Mercury. But still. Christian bale? I mean, he was. He was good. You know, more power to him for putting himself once again through a big body change for a role. But they're in, you know, he did he did exactly what they intended for that role where you're supposed to come out of it and not liking Dick Cheney, and I did not. But there's something about his performance though. The just rubbed me the wrong way. I don't know if it was his way of talking which is spot on verdict, Katie. But this is something about his delivery that just her off just glint in the eye a little bit. I I don't know. I don't know what I don't know what it was. But I just I just did not care for his performance. Just something off of it for me. So, and you know, I haven't seen green book either. So, but I imagine that the go while I'm sure he did a very good job. It probably was not aid Oscar winning performance. I know a lot of people said that really low the way green book is structured that. Really? It's it should be double billing for lead actor. Bego? And Marsha it's like I mean, I haven't seen either. But I would that's what I would have assumed when I really just the two of them carrying the movie for the most part. They end up there. They're together. It's just the two of them for like such a big chunk of the movie that they might as well just have equal billing at least what I understand. Best director Dada surprise there. Alfonzo core on walked away with it cinematography it'd going to Roma which I actually picked. So I think that was probably a toss up though between the favorite roll my thing. I imagine. If you looked at counts that was that was probably close would be my guess costume design. Like like, we said that was one that business and the budgets that being said, I am happy to take that loss. Remember when I was watching itchy owed like panta, but food that got it wrong. Yeah. Yeah. That was definitely anytime. Black Panther one something we hadn't picked it. I was like like. We got it wrong. But yeah. Like fat there. 'cause she the their costume designer. She for it not being a period piece where you know, create. Yeah. Especially something like the favorite with the ostentatious, you know, ballgowns and the Whigs and the hats, and the just craziness that is, you know, Walter period. Regency era type type clothing Black Panther. You know to Challah aside, obviously, the Black Panther literal Black Panther costume that was CGI. But anytime Challah was regular clothes and everybody else other than when kill monger ends up with his version of the bypass shoot. We've lost CGI the costumes are just. Beautiful, and the fact that she took the time for we at when they when we get to the waterfall fight in you have the different tribes represented in each have their own distinct. Look. And yet it all still fits in that universe. And she made sure that regardless of which tribe. It was that the costumes were authentic to an actual tribe in Africa. That she wasn't. She didn't just sit down with a pencil and papers. Oh, that looks kind of African. Yeah. Yeah. That'll work. She actually did the research to make sure that she was not culturally appropriating, anything she made sure to use fabrics colors, prints that were legit appropriate. You could go to Africa in see colors and fabrics from black pay their on actual people in Africa. Yes. Obviously for some of the modern stuff, you know, like tell his mother some Suri's outfits. Yeah. Putting that modern spin on it. I think it's what is it. One of one of two Talas mothers Angela Bassett's character. One of the her dresses was three D printed. Yeah. That's the way they made the dress. It was three Heaver did like how cool is that? But it still fits within the universe of what kinda because they're so technologically. Of course, the Queen would wear a dress has been three D printed. So yeah, Black Panther. We got it wrong. But I totally take that loss. Yeah. Let's see documentary short. We did get right, which is awesome. I love the fact that that was directed. And one by women was team all team of women. That was pretty cool. Apparently, that's on Netflix. That was a Netflix like supported production too. So I think it's still on Netflix. I have not checked. Film editing bohemian rhapsody, of course. For language film. We got that. Right. That was no surprise which Roma makeup and hairstyling. What's again, Holly? You're the only one that called it. You you you'd voted for vice in you got outvoted 'cause we all went when the sky, and I couldn't remember. Yeah. Although someone in a video of watching earlier. Yeah. Someone doing an Oscar recap disagreed with giving it to vice because makeup and hairstyling other the Christian bale had a little bit of prosthetics, but both of his physical embodiment of Dick Cheney was the weight gain which has nothing to do with makeup hairstyling that was all on him. Now, a lot of the other people. Yeah. For the period because especially because of how many different time periods of goes through because it starts from the sixties late sixties early seventies through to mater dei. So yeah, the hairstyles changed the the cot know costumes, the, you know, the been suits and the ladies outfits, the those change too. But I mean, the other than Christian bale everybody else still call it looks like themself. There's no really great chameleon like although that being said Revie Milic so Kyle excite may Malik playing, Freddie. Mercury. But yeah, I don't know. I I'm torn on that one. So. I'm not necessarily sure that got that one. Right. But whatever. Best original score. We did get that one. Right. 'cause they got a Black Panther. Which is good, which is awesome. So. Which apparently Gustaf there. He's buddy buddy with Ryan Kugler because this is the third rank over directed movies done the score for because he also did creed. And. Oh, I can't think of the movie now. Oh crap. What's that movie? Wrangler several years ago fruitvale station. He also did the score for that as well. So which is a you know, that's not that uncommon director. Yeah. Director and composer relationships. Not an unheard thing. In in Hollywood. So. Just look at timber Danny often. There's a there's a combination who we see a lot. Original song. Shallow, of course surprise. They're awesome. For lady Gaga, you can now say Academy Award winner leading live emotional. She was when she accepted the award. Awesome. She is on her way to that e got this shoots. So. She's halfway. She's she wants something for her stint on American horror star. But I think it was a Golden Globe. Not an EMMY so. The production design that to Black Panther which we did pick. Animated short. We all got right for bell. Of course. With all went into outgo picks are. Animated feature Spiderman the spiders again, not a surprise that one isn't picks on DeWolf. It. Toothpicks race entered Disney animation. So. So dizzy technically had had to in there though. Though, the Spiderman newspapers is Saudi so. The live action shorts. Not even close, although Christie did pick it. Not that it matter. Although looking back, it does that make sense if you look at the current political climate, if you look at the Kurt Kurt state of of things and particular subject matter for that one that should have been kind of of the I think maybe that that was probably gonna win sound editing sound mixing both Linda mean rhapsody, which those were the two that really helped us because spark madness did not whether you did for sound mixing, but sound editing. They they picked a quite place. So there were there were a couple where we go with bohemian rhapsody, and they didn't and when they call human win that there was a very loud screams of what's from the other guy. He. Trying to keep a calm. It's fresh on your face. Yeah. This is good for us. Oh, which I. Totally agree that those should have should have gone to bohemian rhapsody. They weren't. If for I guess sound editing is really just getting all of the sound in there. So not just music, but you know, doors. Opening phone's ringing that sort of thing sound mixing is getting level. Right. So, you know, someone's must be on the phone and door closes these sound like you're hearing it through and that sort of they. Like, I didn't really notice differently. Yeah. I noticed a bit of difference, but chill editing is getting the right? Sounds in the right places that mixing is getting the sounds of sound right where they are. Okay. Mic. Cessive? That's the best way. That's that's probably the. Cliff notes way of doing that's really over simplifying it. But 'cause I have done sounded being I, you know, I do sounded for this all this is nearly as complicated as a feature movie, but I have done more complicated sound editing. Threw out my time mostly in college. But still so I know what that all entails, and it is not easy. I getting sounds right making sure that all the sounds that. Because a lot of you go outside, you know, go to the mall and sit in the food court for five ten minutes and try to write down every single sound. You hear you'd be really surprised how many sounds we don't consciously? Register. And that's where the the sound editor comes in making sure that all of the sounds are there. So that it sounds the weights foes to and then the person mixing it make sure that their sound, right. Once they're in there. Oh. Bohemian rhapsody with all of those going between concert performances too. Yeah. Sitting in an office arguing over whether bohemian rhapsody should be song released to the radio. Yeah. Those are completely two different. You know, Sal groups of sounds that you're gonna have in those particular scenes, you know, even. Yeah. You'd be really surprised I think with how many different sound pieces or tracks or whatever are in that scene. You know, might Alirza his office versus the Live Aid concert. Yeah. Obviously the Live Aid is going to have a crap ton. But. Yeah. Some of the smaller scenes are going to have a a lot of them to more than you realize. So not surprised that bohemian rhapsody one for that visual effects. Was I surprise although I had called I had voted for. I me. Yes. You numbers? And I'm like. Yeah. Can we say we're remarkable fan girls? You know, the day we're gonna we're gonna go with the with the marvel. So, but it did it did end up going to first man, which. Yeah. I guess recreating landing on the moon is impressive. I was I was gonna make a fake joke. But I couldn't. Somewhere Stanley Kubrick is going. Yeah. Kidding kidding? I'm kidding. I do not subscribe to the moon landing was faked directed by seeing coober like some people who do. Or some people like to say, yes, the moon landing was directed by Stanley Kubrick because he's such a perfectionist he insisted that they film on location. I laughed so hard like. Oh, adapted screenplay. We did not get right? Nobody got right. Because that ended up going to black klansman. So I'm not gonna lie. I didn't know of lex flat crowns about until I was watching last night. I don't like like, I doubt it. But I never really paid attention of went to look it up. Like all end. It didn't get a lot of didn't play the trailer quite a bit when it was out. Yeah. I remember seeing the trailer a couple of times when it was first starting to be promoted. And I was like, okay. That's the thing. So. Which that was a spike Lee's win win. I love that. Because that was one. I am a semi Jackson Embry Lawson. Yes. Headed out. Pill the friends. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So I love the same Jackson. Let Spike Lee. No that the clippers. Yeah. Had one. Like, the one time, you're not courtside spike. This kiss. You check on your phone. There you go. So for what inter stand of black klansman, I guess this was probably a deserved award. Again. This is one of those things that I discovered after we made our picks. But I guess black klansman is based off a book written by the police officer who is. Played his. It's a true story. But I guess his book is essentially the book form of a police report. So it's very drawl and very dry and not not really exciting at all. So the fact that Spike Lee was able to adapt that into something entertaining. So worthy of of warning winning Oscar so in the best original screenplay. We got wrong. Although briefly a Chauncey did vote for green book. So which again, one of those that are kind of controversial because their families fair living family members of the people involved have differing opinions on how things actually happened. One of Houston the other of lying. Yep. 'cause I guess I guess it was written by the sun. Of the musician. I think I think so based off of stories that he was told verbally. Yes. But then I guess the family members of the guy played by more center. Like, no, that's not happened. That's something we should expect by in Mimboe's of. Yeah. It is fairly the he's like portrayed badly. I think 'cause that's some of the issues of people people had with green book ended up greenback winning best picture is because the story is not that while it's good. It's not anything groundbreaking essentially driving miss daisy. Right. But with the race has reversed and the person being driven around is dude set of an old woman. Oh. So it's not it's it's a it's a good movie. I guess from the people of seeing Sean really liked it. And he said it deserve the best picture. But from what I understand of other people that have seen like, yeah, it's it's good. But it's not any you know, when you're talking about especially with so many movies nominated this year that have to do with race. Yeah. With black clansmen and Black Panther. And Roma when yeah, which is has to do with African Americans, but has to do with Hispanics. But there's issues with you know, relations in in the Hispanic community in that film. So there's so many movies in has to do with the million. Yeah. It a lot. But does it tiny bit of it? Yeah. That it's the green book people just think it's too safe that they the kademi once again with what they're familiar with that. It's the nice safe movie of two people from different different walks alive thrown together in some situation and half to figure out how to get along. And they do and Hollywood pets themselves on the back say good job for us. You know, supporting something that doesn't really push forward race relations any further. It just kind of is just it keeps the steady course. But it's not really progressing at any further. Again, I'm saying this based on things that I have heard from people have seen this movie. So yeah, I can't speak from my own experience from watching the film of watching eventually probably. I do have plans watching it. But not not because of it because I always liked big Moton like that. Yeah. I think he's a good actor, but. I got like little I know of it. Yeah. Exactly. So. I would've liked to sing bohemian rhapsody win, obviously. Voted not just because we a four eight. I you know, I would have been happy. See Black Panther with it. Oh, yeah. I totally would have taken a loss on that. If I pandered one or even a star is born I would've taken. Yeah. Yeah. I would have taken I wanna take the stars born as well for for that. But at the end of the day, the the kademi decided to go with with green book, which this is the second time that Mahershala is been in a in a film that surprised people from by winning best picture. So yes, we'll have to keep that in mind going into the future like is Mahershala in this movie. We might need to vote for that one. Although there was well it was surprising. There was no controversy. They made sure as Julia Roberts was coming out on stage. They showed that envelope. Writing the camera. She was taking it said pets. Know if that's about it, exactly. Oh, yeah. Another award season coming on for you know, back into it again with. Other movies that who knows who knows what's going to get. And I I'm a tension yet thinking rocket man like it's the same hype. That that to me. He was joking about that. I was joking about that. After the after the show is over were packing up our stuff last night. We were talking about doing rematch. Like, it's like, yeah. We'll do it again next year rocket man just vote for it in right now. Assume it's gonna go the way bohemian rhapsody. Did you get an icy stairs? Now, they laughed. Oh, yeah. Just based on what I know of off the top of my head. What's coming out this year rocket man, probably? It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood because again, they love fix, and I love Tom Hanks, if as Mr. Rogers isn't gonna get documentary Dag nab at Tom Hanks is gonna get it playing, Mr.. I'm thinking probably captain marvel adventures and game. Those at least our wars for the. Yeah. Hopefully, Black Panther. And I was you know, having a. Debate lively debate with Ben last night about Black Panther and into the spider verse and all that. And he was you know, he's like indisp- superhero movie ever besides dark nine like like, well, yeah. But Black Panther getting nominated for best picture breakside glass ceiling. Yes, it does floor. He's like well dark Knight should want. So we can't Iraq deadly go back, unfortunately, but going forward. With Black Panther, not only getting Omni for best picture, but also winning these awards outside of just, you know, visual effects are sound mixing or you know, where usually our films get relegated to that going forward. The academy. Again, we don't need a best popular movie category. Forget that. That was an idea drop it. Hopefully as kademi voters, get younger. Yeah. The kademi starts getting replaced more and more with people from our generation that that will help. Walk into you know, like, I don't pay attention. You have to be invited. Accents. Yeah. In the last time that there was like a major like. Change in the demographics. I think was back in the seventies. When I was reading an article, I think they said when. Gregory Peck was president of the academy at the time. And he realized that they voting pull was. Too many stuffy old white men, essentially. That he invited a just a big influx of younger, folks. And if you look at the awards in the seventies, that's when movies like midnight cowboy and rocky and movies like that started winning. So. But they're very tight lipped about who is in the voting pool. All all you really know who the president of the academy is and that that's about it. They're very very tight lipped on on that. But it's I mean, it's tends to be other actors and directors and folks like that. So you know, as we start to get people like pre Larson, maybe. Into the voting pool. But that that you know, we'll slowly. But surely, you know, the, you know, the most popular what people because they're the most popular films less Oskar bady type movies start getting the recognition that they deserve. It's not just. You know, the war movies. It's not the political move. It's not the the droll -biotics office to. Lincoln. But. So we'll say. We'll see going into going into the season. So everything that's coming out. Now is eligible so this time next year. We'll see. All right. Else? Not that. I can think of this was fun. Hey, I'm I'm with Chrissy up furry match. I think they're going to want it. I think it's going to be a point of pride. How many date like how long that they'd been doing it themselves that last year was the first year as far as I know.

This but feel free that you can put your feet up and lean on the thing. You look like m j what album is that against the wall. Off the wall. But he's really against he's against the wall. You know, Trump's well, he was very don't want people didn't know that about MJ. Yeah. That he was prophetic. I believe the song bad was about how he felt about the wall. That's true. Yeah. And just the whole Trump administration. You are not alone. Right. Is for our white black or white is about well that was about real issue. Yeah. That was the one he was like I'm gonna get real on this one. And then we'll go back to human nature when he said, Jimmy. Oh, yeah. We what? Maybe the most controversial move humane. Evan j you know, he had somebody in his life. That was like, I don't know, man. I don't think he did. I think he was just so successful. That people were kinda like I mean, it's j what are we going to be? Hey, you didn't think like MacAulay could be like, you know, that's a slur. It's a thing. Like, my whole thing with Kevin Hart on the Oscars topical podcast, people know, exactly the weakest recorded. Yeah. Well, but it's it's already too late. I mean, I'm way too late to the idea. Sure. But you gotta take maybe Kevin can learn from what my Hake. Okay. This is my take my take has nothing to do with like who's going to host the Oscars. My theory is just thank you. Katie is just that he was with the wrong friend. Picture Kevin Hart in like a beautiful BMW. And he finds out that they're saying, you should apologize. And then he runs it by his friend. And he's with the wrong like hype, man. Yeah. The French was like, no man fucked. That's what absolute never say from. It'd be like, hey, just say it's never if he had been with me on that saying he's impressionable I'm saying high-powered rich people in those situations tend to bounce it off whoever their with. Right. And if he had been when they'd be like, what's the big deal? You are sorry politics, but already budget, it'd be like just to it again. And she's a dance that you do it takes a minute. And then you get to host Oscars. Who cares? That's right. And that's why I believe that somebody could have said, hey, MJ Jubi, but he was with the wrong friend from. It's just like I love it. Yeah. Tell what it's worth. It's just a skinhead. Yes. Exactly. Why is he with them? Jay, he's got one friend of every type, and he met them all on the set for the black or white video where they were Morphing into each other. Oh. My gosh. The wrong friend. He had fifteen what if you were to dinner party at Michael Jackson's house back in the day. And during the meal, you realize you were the only one there that wasn't one of the naked people Morphing into the other grid. It's just like straight gay just like all the different cross sections of type of person. He's like alright collect one of each of these was that casting. I don't know somebody had to be like are you? And you know, I just saw this not it's kind of a heavier thing to start on. But I noticed that I read your Wikipedia deal with it's weird that I have a Wikipedia. What do you mean? I don't we're here to add to your Wikipedia. Thank you, the greatest. Let me start with this. I'm gonna write that down. We're gonna talk about that later. I'm the greatest that's to no-no. I'm writing down. That that I don't know what you just wrote down. I feel like I'm back in therapy. Have you been to there? I have I left it for a while. But I wanna go back. I feel like you're not comfortable. I k you told me I could spell it and sit anyway, but when I'm doing a podcast was just like, but you can do that. But lean that way, just get them feed up on the on the ship. But this this feels crazy that it. Now, you look like a little baby. Don't do that. I'm too tiny. I want. No, that's wasn't it. Kevin Hart tiny, Joe, Biden said cage. No, I do cage. TJ? What is the Kevin Hart show? I two the acronyms for me. I don't think. What was I about to say, oh, I was going to do what a host should do and say that you're so funny. Of course, you deserve fucking Wikipedia. You get the fuck outta my face. You just invited me in here. What do you mean? You said get the fuck out never mind see your faster with the like bit and the scenarios even occur to me to take that like on that level. What I'm saying is you're so funny. Every time you've interviewed me or at midnight at midnight dot net. Yes. I just tell you, James corden. Yeah. Or when I was doing press, remember. Yeah. You did that interview. This is the fucking greatest interview my life. Thank you. It was so funny. So what is going on here? I don't know your job, you're being sweet, no, I don't know. I feel like on some level we appear pages should be reserved for people who have like things to fill them out. And I'm just kind of like he was on this. And he was on this. He also was on this. And I'm just kind of isn't we I I suppose it's like not my stuff. It's just like podcasts or like you've been staffing. Yeah. I hear what you're saying. Yeah. There's no Demi show. Sure. But it's also like I'm staffing on things that it's like, I don't like no one would be like, oh, this is his like I was on the good place for one year. And then I was on a show marvel for one year, then writing this is right. Yes. Yeah. But it's just like, I I can't I don't think that other writers have we competed for shows that they did for so brief time. So I'm like, wait, you if we remember and love them from. Seconds. Fuck. I truly it's kind of like. How many I should set a timer for? I love vine, and I love you on vine and what's wrong with it. Nothing. I feel eight vine your shave. It's not like a shame. It's just I always felt this like people attributed me vine more than anything else. And I was always just kind of like, this is just a thing. I'm doing for fun. It is not any part of me. You were never like a vine boy. Yeah. But people still think of you as vine boy, though, a lot of people do finer, and I I doing so many other things this is really just like like, you wouldn't call me a Twitter that I know I know, but because we see your face, it's like more engaging or something. So we go that's the guy. I saw that thing. But I don't think but that did start for me when I did Gilmore guys. Right. And then I that's important. But you're telling me you were just doing when you started doing tell me about that process. It was just kind of I think I was in college when vine happened, and I was just kind of like this. Fun and funny, and I can make stupid little things with my friends want to like bow. Yeah. Exactly wants to do it. Exactly. And it was just doing things for fun. But I also like already called for film school and had been like trying to get jokes off on Twitter for so long that it was weird to me that people thought of vine like anything bigger like thought of Viner's as a type of person we just wanted that crop. Didn't it seem like they wanted a story or something? Yeah. And you don't even know now that I've been behind the looking glass, that's not the expression behind the curtain a little bit. I feel like they do build stories. So vine works with a PR. I'm not saying taking anything away. I'm just saying what you didn't count on was maybe that a large platform app was like, let's get some press who are guy. Yeah. And we and that story begets other stories that were like these are the fucking guys. You know, what I mean, and the popularity obviously drives those stories, and that makes you think on some level one thing I started to. Like secretly resent was how when people thought of I'm there was like the top crop people. And they were all just like either awful or like annoying. And I was like, I guess the people will hear Viner attributed to me and be like he's one of those. And I'm like, no, no, I'm not I don't care about any of this. Yeah. But yeah, there were so many terrible one. It was it's a weird. I mean that even that good ones were kind of terrible some of them. You know what? I mean. There were always missteps there were always I think branded thing as a platform vinyl. I did thing for Fanta once they make five videos, and I was like, I don't know what that means. But fine, and I just remember going and doing those five and then at the end looking back at them going. I don't think these are good. But they paid me money. That's fine. And that's fanta- fine. That's fanciful Fanta five fanta- fine. That's yeah. I believe that's all the Email said did you do when that was phantom of the opera? No. Why do? Older. And advocate because that's a fucking dad. Joe is it is it. Yeah. You don't use as not a data. You're saying it's just a quality. I think it's Fanta basis of your next special Fant of the it's just you with a fan. I don't know what's on your face. And I'm playing Oregon that shoots out different colors Fanta. Yeah. We're just talking about with Al when I was in Venezuela. We got fantas like glass, bottles, orange and purple gray. It was so good because I had been in the jungle this isn't about me. But I was on a mission trip in the jungles. We were building a house in the jungle then we've flying back we got fantasies in that is the ideal scenario that Fanta wants to drink the CEO is like I want every fan that tastes like a fan. Waiting on the edge of the jungle to those fans. Do you? Remember those commercials that were like why don't you wanna? It was like a fever dream. It wasn't. It was like don't you on drink? Guess I like you look Hutton all that plaster drink some Fanta faster faster. I remember that so distinctly don't you think there was a trend in ads for a while? Like mentos started at an old spice really took that ball and ran out of the stadium. Whether it was like absurd, it's almost making fun of like Japanese or South America. Mentors. Like, we don't make sense. But it's like Swedish, and we like loved it for some of it. And then Fanta was like, we'll do it on purpose. You know what I'm saying? It's wonderful. I keep nodding and being like will. They can't hear that. They can't I want. I'm glad you said that because this is a conversation. Right. And it's a conversation that needs to be experienced at home copy what were shooting with one of those Facebook videos. Oh, three six those are every three sixty Facebook. It's so funny. How many technologies came out after all Berg deposition should happen? Where you're just kind of like, this seems like I shouldn't get this from Facebook. At all where they have a thing called portal where it's like this is a camera, and we'll watch you and send the video to your families. It's like no way. That's what that's one of the things that they have that three sixty camera. And then they have the Facebook portal is just like video chat like camera. But it's like all these things that are coming out after his book was like, okay. We are maybe selling your information. It's like, then don't sell. Stuff to us. Saying they were trying to distract us new features. But really they're just doing what they've always done in where we should be like, hey, wait. We're opposed reason society a reasonable person would be like, well, this company just got caught selling my shit. I should stop letting them sell my video chats with nanna. Right. And but instead we're just like I wanna get those lights. I wanna see what my babies up to a different country. We are stuck. We're so stupid. That's why advertising works. That's what I always go to. I mean, I'm going to buy everything. Google sells me, aren't you though? Yes. I did think about doing thing once where for an entire year just by everything that Instagram advertises to me and just see what that's like. But then on it's just like this is the stupidest. Wall Street Journal like it really piece. Yeah. It sounds turned into a rom com in a year where it's like I found love because I had to buy this like weird water on the collapses funny that you say that because we had to take baby lead to the yard. 'cause she had a fever. She's fine babies. Get sick babies. Thank you so weak. What do you wise? Yes. Nieces nephews now, no. 'cause I was like wait what her cousins? Good. That is a cherry pick. Right from my head is I have no familial intelligent. Yes. When someone's like, this is your nephew once removed them like get outta here. Every leave my home. My mom will be like. So remember your aunt? I'm like, which one you have to be way more. Why this is a passion of mine. Why am I supposed to give a fuck like you see somebody twice for me? It's once a year because one group of people is thanksgiving and one group of people see, I don't even know com. Mom side, dad's Krizan, so somebody that I see once a year. I said this Jamie Lee once and she died laugh, I was just like I'm supposed to be like you. This is your cousin flan and Mike. Why why I don't know? I think my parents failed. They didn't give me any sense of like, you know, they didn't force us to be friends. Right. So we're not really friends, and then they're just some person that I saw, and I know our blood is in there. But like, what are we gonna talk about? I think my parents try so hard to have me get familial connection with my extended family. But I just as a kid was kind of like, I don't care. I'm going upstairs to play Nintendo. Hey, I don't do that anymore. But I also don't know who you guys are you all seem to know each other. So I'm just going to step aside. I love it. That is the feeling of family is I should have been down here. But I was playing intendo. What were we play? I super Nintendo or Raggi. Reggie nintendo. It's Reggie watts. Do actually Reggie Nintendo's. One of my cousins, I think I couldn't tell you might be an uncle, no. I. Into someone here age. It's my brother. I used to hold myself up my room and just like watch the video tutorials for adobe products. Dude. I was very similar. I wanted to know how to like the idea that at some point. I might be using premier was like a faraway land. It is the thing. Like that. Now, I'm just kind of thank God do that. 'cause I use them all the time. But as a kid I was just like I'm gonna put on the rest of developmental not. And then like hole up in the corner of my room and just watch these Dobie toils, and how to make visual effects, and then like for years just kind of like, I should've hanging out with rock and after oh, yeah. That's premier my three D, even the boxes the boxes always had like a butterfly coming out of monitor having real a woman like turning into like pixels or something. It's insane apart face pixels. But you were that that sounds about right. There are a lot of show-bizzy type creative types enjoyed that. And when I think about that, I'm like, that's the that's the origin story when you make your mazing film, people be like, oh, yeah. It was the weirdo and the just one. Yes. The one good film, and then the rest of just like weird product placement for caroling devil. It's just night Trump on I remember, you went from he went straight from exempts too devil. So crazy how much Sean right to devil. How much like goodwill and show on built up eight everything he does. It's like this is going to be the one, and we're all just kind of like over half of them are kind of not good. Right. Well, over no disrespect to the Shamyl right now what you district and look it's hard to make move it. It's eas-. You just watch few Tourelles you get that butterfly out the buck. What I'm saying is I don't even the bad ones. I don't hate. That's pretty good compliment. I went to watch devil, and I didn't hate it. I went to see insane movie last night only because people were talking about how bad it was. And I loved it. Have you heard of serenity with MAC mccown a-? No, oh, it's phenomenal. If you I mean, if you don't wanna watch it. I think anyone listening should go read the synopsis of the plot because you go what why? But watching it unfold fucking day serenity serenity today. I wish I could tell you any like, I'm just I'm not I'll tell you after everything it's so funny. But it's just like you watch the trailer and you go, okay. It's a basic thriller. And then it's very much. Not what happens you people get jump forward. If they don't want to spoil to be ruined serenity for you. The secret is the entire movie is a video game. That was programmed by like twelve year old boy who is the son of an Hathaway and Matthew mcconaughey has. Dead dad who died in the war. But the entire you. Don't learn that the last thirty minutes of the movie and he program the video game. So that his dad could catch fish. But then reprograms at a point. So he can kill abusive stepfather in the game to get himself the courage to kill abusive stepfather in real life. Yeah. Wait if Matthew mcconnahey can do it in the game. I can do it and realize that is that is a cinnabon of disaster. Yes. And unfold in such a crazy away. I'm so sorry for you getting is I know you had rented tonight into serenity now. She's jining. So you're a bad movie lover, I'm an all movie lover. Well, I'm with you. It's like pizza, right? Like even bad pizzas. Okay. Yeah. And even the village is okay. Even the village fine. I feel like every so often there's a movie that I just I can't stand. I feel bad about it. But then I won't stop talking about it. What's a movie that you couldn't stand? I'm trying to think the last movie that I was like, oh, you know, what no disrespect to ram e Malik. Oh, fucking bohemian. Rhapsody thought it was bad. It was bad. Like if you were like that. It was great. I'm not a confrontational person. I'd be like, no, we loaded it into a computer. Right. And the computer was like bad movie detected. It's a bad when someone just like due to two that's pretty good too. And they do that five sides. I want them to be like. I want them to be like, that's great. But what's the riff cut to the the stadium? Crazy with. Reason for me in that movie was the scene where Mike Myers. No one's ever gonna bang that in in a car to Socorro avian rhapsody. I was like don't fucking do this to he's say that I was to confuse it 'cause he's like Shrek, right? And he looked like Danny McBride. He really like why? Aid Danny McBride, because it's a way 'cause Wayne's world because Mike Myers loves, Freddie. Very good. Thank you. I've been working on my Shrek for day. Oh. Oh. All the my office. Nobody's got just witness the end of the journey because that's how little that movie. Moved me. It could journey. It was a fine replace from being a movie about journey just called don't stop believing. Vallon? I that's hilarious. We talked about it for about like you with movies that we don't like we talked about longer than movies that we do because we were like what is the story apart from. And I don't even give a fuck that. I'm ruining bohemian wraps. If you haven't seen it, you weren't gonna see you don't care only gonna watch it for the amazing performance of Remmy Malik. That's what I'm saying. It's and even then watch accomplished on YouTube high agree. Yeah. I agree. Throw it on the two. You don't need the movie. Just see his great performance. He's wonderful. But oh, we're talking about on the walk. What did I have? We hated it. Oh, what is the story apart from his sexuality, which isn't that interesting? Yeah. I get it at that time. It was different. But we've we also. Lord in any like noting full way his dad, just like the Brian Wilson movie. His dad has just sorta like music d'arme, and you're like for two seconds. And then the next time you see them. They're like our love you could use old out live as every time. I think about this movie. I just think about how crazy it is that in a world where walk heart exist yet. You can't make a movie that's boilerplate. And just like so by the book is this. It's so by the book, it is the book. Yeah. It's just like unofficial and Joan the band the band head now on the road now guy. No, I don't wanna come out. Yeah. I go out. And also just starts like he's already. It's there's no time before he's famous. He's like at the airport once when they're bad now, there's no growth. Absolutely. They're good. When he sees them. They start playing the first gig. They're like learn the lyrics, Freddie, yet only conflict, and it doesn't seem to really be comic as the it's still on. If that thing you do where he plays the beat too fast. Oh, yeah. But it like even less consequence because we don't even know he doesn't know the lyrics because we never saw them. Errs movie sucks. The whole the whole thing is tripping to tell the story. It's like, I'm so sorry. There's so much to cover is there. There's not anything to cover. They just wanted to see how many songs they could get in. That's right. Yeah. And how many times they could be like, I don't know something we are the winners. I don't know. We didn't as losers. No the champion. We could have written that movie. And I think like a day, right? Just had it been like, hey, it's the same thing. I think you could load the Wikipedia page of Queen into final cut prior final draft. And it would just be the move. Yeah. Like five hundred would reformat the fact still keep other like parentheses ones in there or it's like source ni. Pity awa- for you think six seconds is in Tennessee souls needed. Larry's he's says it he does say there was a scene in Hercules knit for made for an incredible impression of Rami Malik with like fake teeth than his mouth and makes me laugh every time. He says that the like our Perkeo war for Schick Shek, inches and Tana. And then you watch Freddie, Mercury. And he didn't look like he had fucking the Twitter's teeth. They went a little over when not a little overboard it, which is like everything he can it was like having a whole lemon and his mouth and everything. He was struggling seal. The gate you had to be like the lips together. As he went through his conflict-free existence. What are we saying to her about Hercules, there was a scene in Hercules, you written scripts where it's called a reader where you know, it says like Hercules or a reader would be like, Pete frustrated. Oh, yes. You know, you put in parentheses get outta my house. So his was frustrated and instead of. His acting head straight. It was disappointed. Yes. I know this. It's incredible. It. Kevin Sorbo deserved. An EMMY for that does. I wish that every TV show movie had a moment like that where they just they let the character just go. I can't tell what's going on with foreign movies. But it seems like they might be more open. Some of them. Sure. Yeah. I don't wanna pay with too broad of a brush sure, you're saying that form a foreign movies. Don't know how movies that. Yes. I'm saying the world is wrong in America. I wanna be clear about this. Yes. America's the only one that makes you say that again clearly have sound by with. Of course, I'm joking. So yummy, Malik Rami. Malik Stif malaria drug about where he goes boy was Rodney Malik teeth in that movie tooth too. Any who's a lose? All you were saying you didn't wanna be vine star. But you were sort of an unlikely star. And then I was saying I just do the whole podcasts. That I was thinking of you that way intil I heard about Gilmore guys that was one of the U M. I right in saying that you were worried about being trapped as vine person, and then he started branching out. You know, what's so funny is I feel like every single new thing that I do I eventually get to a point where I realized that people like it. And then I get worried about being trapped in that. Because when you said Gilmore guys, I just now had a gut feeling like, yeah. But I'm not the guy either. And it's like insane because people liked it, and it's not like a bad thing to have done. But I also just feel like that goes back here, we Kapiti page where you're like, it's just a list of things I've done. None of them are me. I think it's because like to me these are all just like stepping stones that I'm taking on a way to doing like a big thing. I've always wanted to do. So what is that? Like, I I really wanna like write and direct stuff which is just so hard because it's something that you can't really do just on your own like you need to work with people. And that's always been such a hard thing for me. What do you mean? Like in the sense that I think I am a control freak and be don't know how to reach out to people in a way that I can like ask for help or figure out how to do things. Like, I feel like I'm still pretending to be an adult. And because of that kind of like, I don't want to ask this question because you will realize that I know less than I do those two different points. I thought you were saying I'm a control freak. So I don't wanna easy. So there are two reasons. It's like one is one you'll be found out. But one is you don't want anybody fucking your stuff. Yeah. Or like, I think there's a little party. It's like, well, I know what I want out of this. And I'm afraid that if I just trust someone else to do it. Then they will do it not the way that I want, and then I'll have to ask what let's do that. Again. I wanted you to do it this way. And I'll be like this controlling asshole. That's funny. It's I know exactly what you're talking about. Because I had to get over that making TV show. Oh, you have a TV show. Oh, it's crashers. Oh, I'm sorry. On stars. There's a type of impolite that whenever we go back to New York. Val Val, and I were in line at a deli, and we were getting a sandwich, and we noticed that being polite in New York is impolite. Yeah. Because you're slowing down the line. So everybody was like Turkey on a rall. Like these people ordering the donkey row. Got it must deny Alpo. And then if you're like, hi, how are you like you order a sandwich in LA, you're an asshole? So there's something similar going on when it comes to like film and stuff which it took me a long time to realize that like you're polity trying to like couch everything just like is it. Okay. If we get if we I don't know I I was picked you thought. It's like you're wasting time just keeps the line moving keep the day working. So just go like I wanna do it again. But this time, can you just please not do that thing with your hands? I feel like I'm not like built for that. I don't know. So nobody takes practice. That's what I'm saying. I'm trying to give you hope nobody is built that way. Nobody comes out of the womb like mom. I love the Barth. I'd love to in a guy with less moaning and a little bit more shooting out of liquid coming back. But this time legs. I. You gotta catch me. This time. How old are you? Now. Twenty six how old are you? Now. Darya now. So you're twenty six years old. Yeah. Twenty six years young. I the thing is I'm twenty six, but I also constantly feel like I'm a million years older than I am not a million. I feel like I'm like thirty five. Well, yeah, you're an old twenty-six an old just decrepit like in the bio pic about you. Yeah. That will be one of played by Kevin Hart. Well, you'll be Kevin Hart, and there'll be lots of little people Kevin Hart jokes. Yeah. Kevin. Kevin Hart is old you. Yes. No Kevin Hart is current day me playing for some reason he's playing much younger. I hear you. But he's twenty six twenty six and then I bear in holtz's playing me. And he goes where are you in my MU, I'm kidding? You got this go you. I'm twenty six you're an old twenty-six, aren't you? Because you are. And then I looked down to my hands. And then we cut to the future where I'm doing something. And that's when it's Kevin Hart. Yeah. And that's also right bohemian rhapsody. My hit son. No one in the band was like this is a little weird. It also later on the band at all they don't give a shit about the band. Completely. But they didn't they didn't tell us why he wanted to write an opera at all. No to them going like, it's an opera. It's like can you please? There had to be an interview where he talked about what he was bored with rock music. He loved opera could we see him seeing opera as a child or something. I think one big problem. So I'm a motion tie his dad took them to opera. They didn't let my he. Right. I know they didn't have time for it needs to be two and a half hours still for several. It was the longest movie that was tripping over itself Bennett, multi. I watched it on a screener. I just kept having go like posit and be like, maybe I shouldn't finish this movie. Then I come back and be like, oh, they're still so much left. All right. Let me just get there. Still so much left vow said to me while we were watching was like, I hate this. And if you press stop, I'll kill you because we'd invest that we were committed we'd invested so much that we had was me with so many movies last year. Earlier you asked what movie I had aided? Yeah. On Netflix called mute with Alexander Skarsgard just throw in Paul Rudd. There's a third scars card. Yes. Oh, he's I think he's the second Skarsgard whose first Peter Stellan stellar. Sars guard. What do you mean? Peter SARS guard. He's not related to know guard and star scarred. Man. Right. You've been mixing up scarred. Scarred. Scars saris. How could I have done that? Now. That's weird mistake. You've made SARS guards are Peter. Yeah. Stallion his stars guard scars scar scar. See this is what line exactly scars guards guard like he's one of the millions of scar. He protect scar guards. Yeah. And I only know that they're Stellan Skarsgard Stellan and others and Peter Alex, Alex hours out scars guards. And this is all nonsense and went home, just like they're saying, they're not saying words, Peter why do I keep saying Peter said, Peter you are guard stars guard SARS guard is Joan holes husband Alfred the word Jilin hall into the hall. It's already Alex cars guard is the hot tall one from big little lies. Oh, but he's a bad guy, dude. Yeah. But very good looking. He's very that's why so bad. Well, also the abuse. But yeah. Anyway, I mean, how do I get to this? We're talking about the movie mute. Oh, yeah. One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I wish I had seen it. I she would see it too. It's unintentional in his like Dunkin Jones worked on the move for so long, and I was so excited to see it and at three different moments. I pause and I won't finish this. It's too bad. And they feel bad to shitting on it. But then I got to the knows like I can't believe any choice that you made. Yeah, he was in a video game that his son made. It was crazy now I son when you when the sun made a video game for Matty Mocatta, his dead dad to kill simulator version of dad. It's fun. Nobody cares. I mean someone. No, I'm kidding. If you were going to go, see the movies ready. You're not welcome in this. And I loved it. And I'm getting you're allowed to see it. You're allowed to let it if I love giving them. No. You know, what if I could take it away? You know what I'm saying? We were working under the seat if you felt like I took it away. Then I am able to give it back. Yes. You know what I'm saying? I get it. So if they didn't buy the takeaway, they weren't needed for the welcoming back. I love a good bad Makaay gold. Oh, the dream. I can afford go here. No, no, no. It's just called gold. Am I confusing? Remember, Sahara that was good Skarsgard. Alex, Peter, and Sahara, no high-rise a Makaay. Yeah. It was like Steve Zahn. And whose end Steve's on all of the greats of the two I always on Seve's on hoist a barrel above his head. All the time he performer that would be like he's going to do like those sort of effortless Cartwheel's like strongman Cartwheel's and then lived a barrel over his head. He's PT Martin's right hand, man. That's right. Yeah. He's he's scars guard Barton's guard guard there it is. Steph's on. Barnes garnered. Guard Barnes guy. He does look like a guy in a circus. That's a strong when every time he pops up until oh good to see you. It's just like old familiar friend than I'm like. Oh, right. He was great in. That thing. You do. All ready mentioned. Yes. Forgot he was in that. Yeah. Yeah. He's the bass player. He's in the band somehow. He leaves he ate Tommy Hanks great movie. He wrote it. Yeah. Directed and directed it. Then he's like, I'm gone eight never came back to the to the ring erected things. He did he made a Larry Crowne should've retired. Fuck what Jake Edano Larry Crowne? I mean, it's it's nothing. I like that movie. But I also think of it as one of the most okay movies of all time, which also like to think about just like what is the most? Okay movie like a year or just didn't kind of this or that. It's not bad. It's not great. It's just like you put it on. And you will not be upset the US time. But you also won't won't leave any impression on. Yeah. I feel like that so many movies. I did a poll once on Twitter oceans asking people to send me what they thought was the most. Okay, move time. And I realized chef is one that people think is just across I raised my hand. Yes. That is such a great answer. Chef. And then also like if like a perfect, okay, everyone everyone talks about the movie like it's really nice to watch. You just watch people make food for awhile. Fun. Sounds great. It's fine. It's fine move. No, one would leave that feeder going fuck that movie. But no one's gonna go. What an incredible experience. It seemed like a. Like, you took a nap and have vivid dream. Yeah. It's it's like Jimmy crossword in the afternoon, just oh well time has passed now. Kimmy two chefs. Meet four hours. I yeah. Four hours to finish this Sunday. Cross. I couldn't tell you anything about chef other than Jon route does a generous pan down to him chopping. I have let him chopping, but one of these days I have seen. I need a few moments spot, and I'm just gonna watch. Well, that's how I see you have Gilmore girls. Yes, I'm guessing in what when Gilmore guessing. Well, you'll get it in that. There's things that I just like watching because I like having something on or something. Yeah. And my show, obviously for people listening madman. Right. It doesn't really matter. What's happening? Just sort of like the feel. It's almost like lighting in sensors episode madman on in the best live in that space for bit. And I wouldn't you came here last. It was in here. Right. It was and we recorded Gilmore girls. I I didn't realize it was a show about loving Gilmore girls. And so that's the thing. It is in one way. But also, I was not connected to it. And. I still don't feel a connection Gilmore girls. I've watched it since we stopped recording. Oh, it's not your show. Now, whose idea was it was Kevin's. He is a longtime fan of the show. A long time this show and started a podcast podcasters thinking like oh, fun to talk about it. But I came onboard just being I'm the one who's never seen it. I'll be watching it for the first time, you'll be reliving it. I'm realizing how little we told you about the podcast when we come on. Yeah. And it's very funny because that's still one of the most controversial episodes of that podcast. But I loved well if I was tuning into a podcast to celebrate madman. And some guy was like what the fuck is this show? I couldn't watch it. If I couldn't watch it Val watches it I hate. So it's not that. I think it's a bad show. Sure. I just can't stand like clever snappy dialogue. Right. I hate it. I totally get that. I started watching I won't name it. But a new show, and it just had like cute speak. It had these people on a date, and I won't give it away. But it was just like if you could only wear t shirts or never wear t-shirts again, which would you pick? There's just like I think I stood up and said fuck us. I really wanna know I'll tell you off air. I don't because I don't wanna shed. I know as even as we're shitting on other movie. Larry Crowne, I. No getaway for its. They can get away from you. You know what I'm saying? But like writing to me things should be like smoothed out to the point where there's a little intention. We want to get that level. Right. You wanna feel the writers a little bit? We also wanna feel like a naturalization like on crash crashers on stars often. I just wanna go. Let's just naturalized this people don't talk that way. People don't walk in a room and go like I five minutes to get to the airport. Would you give me a ride like wouldn't you say Hello? I sure wouldn't you do something. I are you going to sit down, you know, like and with the prison answer right away. Yeah. I can do that. You can just give it some air. Give it some something in madman. Does it? So well, Gilmore girls not trying to do that. Now. Neither is thirty rock. Another great show that I just can't watch. I just I'm just not into it. Even though you see it as like, I feel like thirty rock sets itself so much as like a fantastical comedy world. Even just like, no, I can't I guess I don't really like fantastical world alone. I don't like the ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding every. I here's something important about this podcast. Yes. To me. I wanna give people examples of of myself and have myself have this happen. I am aware that I'm wrong like on though. But what I'm saying is I'm not attached to the thought. Sure, it's not for me is a powerful thing to say, I aware that my brain is and the way that it consumes things. It's not for me. I don't watch it and go, but I see so many people go if it's not for me. Therefore, I don't understand anyone that has four. Yeah. I watched that show. I'm like, this is a masterpiece amazing. And it's not for me. I don't hear enough people talking that way, everybody's like as my way. And if you're still by the start of club against those people, and they can be a club for those. It's so funny. You say that I was at this podcast mention this past weekend where we did a panel tonky. Yes, we did PCP. It's the angel dust convention Seattle. And we were talking about how you try and keep yourself from being negative on a podcast where you're just talking about media all the time. And even though like again, we have shit on like four different movies in the span of how long I've been here. We love it. I do on some level. It is like I even saying the panel. It's very important just start like couching all of your criticisms are like the way should on things and saying like, it's not for me. And it's not up to you to be like, I don't like this. Therefore, it's bad or there's no objective thing arts. Right. If things that everyone's like this awful, you find eleven people love the room. There's someone out there who genuinely I really enjoy the room not in Iran accents, even though it's like we all kind of see put its bed. Everyone knows. It's bad. Right. But it's just like everything is someone's things. So why pretend that there's any objectivity in art? I think that's that's really brilliantly. Put Val also mentioned that she we both have a friend. They were like she loves Queen. She's just gonna love that movie. And then vow goes, I would've liked that movie before you. You ruined me like before we started sort of watching movies a little bit differently. Also her being on set. And then just seeing more stuff. It does change the way you watched of. She was like most people most people some people don't watch movies and go like that's a little bit canned. Right. You know what? I mean. They just go like look at the callers. It's like I went to go see that even making. No. I know sounded like I was making good. I said look at the college. But anything they're just like I heard Queen Rammie. Malik looked amazing. The acting wasn't like bad. It was great acting. And I was at the movie. Well, a lot of people love like a lot of that. Just saw the movie it's fun. I don't know why there's anything more to say about it. Why would we break down? Exactly. But I do also think of like the time I went to go see that Carole king musical beautiful. And the entire thing was just like references to the song that we already knew where it was just kind of like, oh, no one's ever gonna like that song. What's it called where you lead and everyone's like ever? Oh, because it's like people love that clever moment. But when you're like, you just see it coming you. Just get annoyed by. Oh, yeah. The way you perch, meteor the way that you look at things that's the equivalent of when you see a jazz solo. And they go. Like, you just like squeeze the Simpsons theme here. Everyone in the audience goes like, oh, yeah. That's a musical of that yet. I there are certain times where if someone does that like I would like what's on my God. I just lost it. Let me clear my throat by DJ cool Benon times. I will hear a song break into that. And I just go crazy and they go right back into it. And I feel like the sucker in that moment where it's like, I complain about singing every other sense. But because it's a song. I like I love it. Yeah. And it's just that's another. That's okay. So what we're talking about? I actually I think is actually pretty important. Is that like, yeah. That. Is stupid when my mom who's seventy four at the Boston pops like, I get it. But that is you and me at a party and they go dead on. It fit perfectly with that other Shockley wearing issue. Yeah. But don't judge. I know it sounds says to, but but don't just don't judge because judging stupid like actively don't have a beautiful, active, compassion and go like look this person loves the movie. What is it called serenity? Oh, yeah. And that's fine. It's like when I took 'em. I had an felt like such an epiphany. It was I didn't know it. I was it is if that makes sense like you didn't know that you were the idea wasn't something in my head. It was my whole being overwhelmed and flooded with this with the simple idea, which was people don't have to be like me total it felt but like that's such a simple idea. But just because it's symbol doesn't mean. It's not super profound. But we spent so much time judging people for not being like us. You know what I'm saying? It doesn't need to be that. Way off like if feels like you also become the person that you like in in so many moments where I will shit on something for being bad or like like if you look at this critically at all you'll realize that it's not good. There's sometimes when I watch movie or a TV show, and I just fall in love with it. But then if I'm asked to look at it critically. I'm like, yeah. No, it's terrible. But then I why am I giving myself the leeway in this one instance, being critical and others, and it's just it's so crazy to me that you can at times, let go of the critical sense to enjoy something that's bad and other times, you can just right? Well, no, it's bad. And therefore, everyone who likes this. It's yeah. I think it's just like a boxer watching a boxing match though. Yeah. Just watching it differently. I was actually jed Abbas critical vines. I mean, aren't you though? No. I mean. Yeah. Wouldn't you? I know. I know you mean, that's not how you're spending your time. But I would watch vines and I'd go like that's not good. Like, they didn't do it. Right. What what? Rohde's notes on what you're seeing let him in the house, please, Katie. I don't know why he's out here. Gift for us. Does he have some sort of sandwich or gift don't bring him in here? Oh, Larry Crone. We do not want. That's what he wanted to say. But you're not always that way. When you watch movies, sometimes you're able to just shut off your brain and enjoy it. Yeah. I think it depends also on the the way that I go into a movie because a lot of times I'll go into movie being told it was awful or being having seen the trailer and being like this looks like shit, and then just like never letting myself out of that negative space. But a lot of times Levy knowing nothing expecting nothing, then I'll just come out being like, why would I care that? I didn't like it. It's two hours of my life. I'm fine. Yeah. That's true. It is interesting. How you can carry that in and often your expectation is met for sure sometimes I do that with food like I'll make a sandwich, and I'll sit down to eat it. And I'll tell myself in my mind, I'm like this sandwich. Like Ernest Hemingway, invented the sandwich this recipe, and it is renowned. Just tell yourself some sort of story it is known throughout the world as the best tasting sandwich and eat it. And it actually makes it tastes. Really? Pressure on it that I would just go like, oh, I think it's fine. But I really feel like I should like it more which I do a lot with something. Interesting. I think we maybe have different psyches may be because I do are we different people. He now. I don't. But sometimes you find similar psyches dams new democrat. I every time someone calls me DEM now. It's like that's a different thing. Now, what do you mean in the sense that like Dem's are Democrats? Oh, yeah. It'd be like if your name was republi. Again, what am I cousin 's we think Republican intendo? Assist sister. I'm not I'm not like here to like help or anything. But I you know, my intent is into chain. You think it's interesting that you wanna make films and the things in the way are like you don't want to collaborate. It's it's not even that. I don't wanna collaborates that. I'm scared of doing it in any way that I lose control or be take too much control. Because I feel like I'm also I've worked three shows now where I get to a point where I realized that my contributions in the room are like they feel like people are just sort of tired of them. And at one point I worked on a show and feeling so down, and I just went out into the question. Do I contribute to much and someone was like very kindly kinda like sometimes maybe? Yes. A little. I was just kinda like, okay good. And I was like I just suddenly realized oh, I maybe need to step back a little bit. And not just think of like just pitch every idea that comes into my head interesting. Well, you need, you know, putting together writers that isn't essential guy. But you need to like I'm sort of that way too. I definitely got called to some people's offices and was like you need to cool it, but the other thing that so I mean, I don't know. It's so much better. Like talking lasts is so much easier to do than getting someone to talk more. Yeah. You know, what I'm saying total? So you have all this confidence. And and you're able to green let your ideas and share them putting the reins on that amazing horse is so much easier than getting that pony. That's the barn to stand up big. It's dead covered in dust. And you're like, I think that's one of the writers come on pony. I would so much rather say if you were on the writings of atrios crashers, I would just be like, and what someone said to me once they were like, it's more of a conversation. Just like be a little bit more aware. Yeah. That everybody else's there. I think I'm also just like I get so. Excited anytime. I have an idea that kind of like, you it maybe this is it like maybe solve the problem. Like, no, we're just let us just chill out for bid. Yeah. That's that's the thing is allowing for the space is trying to fix things, right? T do that in relationships to trying to fix things. Yeah. I think avoid problems in relationships a lot of times. And I'm just kind of like, oh, this doesn't bother me. I'll just let this go. Oh, you're you're like me. Oh, no, no, no. I'm kim. Just collaborate and we're gonna go back to collaborating. Okay. No, I used to be more that way. It's actually the same thing that you were having professionally is like, and I'm fascinated with this twenty six year old me fascinated in the idea of how to be like lovingly confrontational. And speaking your truth in a way, that's actually more loving than withholding it, and this is me so long to figure out and then there's the figuring out, and then there's the really like digesting and becoming one with the idea. Like we were saying about people don't have to be like me. So you have like a girlfriend or boyfriend and you're like mad at them. And you don't tell them because you want to keep things like smooth. Yeah. And then you realize over and over for me over the course of like four failed know ending relationships. They weren't failures that would have been more loving to just find a way to like let it out in installments and just be like, I might be wrong, and maybe I'll feel differently later. But that. It wasn't my favorite thing builds up. This didn't mince. But that's what I would always use. I would break up somebody and they'd be like completely blindsided because they didn't know that I was slowly building case piece by piece there will be blood. Oh. Oilman? But that that I think you and me are I don't want to say in the majority. But I think there are a lot of people like us, they go like, okay relationships are supposed to be nice and save an easy and fun. And she just said retarded, and I don't like that. But I'm gonna let whatever, but chances are it's not something like the R word is more something like emotionally peccadillo. Yeah. I had I was in a relationship for a while where things were going so well, but she just would do this thing where she was unintentionally condescending, and she had pointed out to me just as the thing that somebody complained about and I was like, I'm sure that won't be a problem. But gotta me just little by little until at a point. I probably will never get over this. I think we should break up. And then I was just like a completely blindsided her and I felt awful because. Yeah. Because I never mentioned it before. And it's just insane thing to do to someone that you love when you're kind of like, I'm not gonna let you worry about. This because it's clearly just me. And then when you realize it's nine, oh, well, then I guess to end it. I know. Yeah. It's a weird thing to have this little lock box under your bed. Yeah. That you put like close talker Jala tosa Sa's doesn't like on the Senate doesn't let Gilmore girls, and I think it's so much better to just like, but there's actually does go back to collaborating one of the things that I've learned about making stuff is that like it's never gonna be like, I'm I keep thinking about Jordan Peele because he did what you did. He went from comedy, and he hadn't really made a film before. And then all of a sudden, he did I don't know. 'cause I haven't talked to him about it. But I have to imagine even though he was the autour of get out somebody else in those credits was going, maybe maybe a little you know, what I'm saying people people say that HBO's crashers is my show star. And stars his crashers. And I'm like, you don't understand it's I'm just one of the people that makes the tone. It is so much judge show. You have no people would be surprised to find out like how many like major decisions. I I'd go like maybe this happened general go or maybe the absolute opposite. And so you need to like find just like in a relationship, you need to find those ways to be honest in real time rent and mix them up and on some level. I do feel like they're Cajun's where I find people where I work so well with him, and I'm like great. We'll this is a perfect thing for us to work together on. But then I'm also just like when I have an idea. That's just mine. How do I find the person where I'm like, hey, can you help me do just like how do I find that rhythm with someone where it's it's entirely my thing. And that's something that I've worked on someone else. But I don't know. Yeah. I think we've talked about this on the podcasts. You're right to be guarded. Because one of the more often advice, I give to people as if you have a great idea. Like, I'm sure to keep Jordan. He had. Get out for what fifteen years descriptive it for a long time. I made that number up. I think it was a long time. I'm sure especially when things weren't really working for him. Like he wasn't. He didn't have a name from self yet. He was tempted four five six times to bring someone else in especially somebody that like, oh, maybe you could co write this with Ray. Or maybe could maybe I could attach you as the actor all these terrible idea. It's way better to like sit on something and wait for those because as you continue to rise than that greats cred. You have rip. Yeah. What's it called? And I'll tell you what it's about get out to get get out to get in. Out to Golan, get it. It's called back to get out back to get out. Oh, so you don't want to I kind of don't know. Don't. Yeah. Know. All right. That's what I'm saying. Okay. Get me involved. But you're not the right person. What I've what I've said to be before as you have this diamond. And then and it's reflecting light a certain way, but it's your diamond and really the things the diamond right, and you were really hard diamond. And then someone comes in and turns the diamond just one thirty thirty tooth thirty thirty tooth of a degree to the left, and it reflects the light so much better so much cleaner. So much more interesting, colors and stuff. And now, they're the co-authored or you know, what I mean, you need to be careful and clear it's like your relationships you need to be here. My boundaries with us professionally I that with crashing out with jed with other people. You know, you run the idea by friends, and they go. Oh, that's great. I think maybe you have to be like I need to be clear up top. This is my idea. And I'm asking you for. Advice? And if you're not comfortable with that. That's okay. But like, I'm not I'm not looking for a co created credit here. Right. And you like Chris they are worked on my special. And I was like no you can't. There's no co written credit. Totally. I can't have it in the credits additional material provided by Chris there. So I'm telling you now don't pitch me something that's over the line of just a comedian giving comedian tag. Yeah. Don't pitch me something that you're like that's writing just consult because that's my boundary and just like romantic relationship. You get that out of the way up top. And it took me a long time to learn that it took me many projects that got split or divided or multiple credits to get to the point where you can just go like this is my movie Demis movie, it's called get in. I wrote it. I don't wanna nobody's co writing it. I don't wanna control. But would you mind reading it? And giving some thoughts doesn't mean you're a producer you say right up as a friend as a favor. Would you read it and give me some nothing promise? I think the problem becomes where when I'm on the other side of that, I'm so passive and just wanting people to be happy, then I'll just be like. Yeah. And then I go along the way like a relationship. I would be like. Yeah. Those batteries totally. And then I go along the way, and I'm like, I was never really okay with it. What did I say that? What did I say that? Yeah, you're right. You're frayed of yourself. I'm so meeting someone like you kind of like, Jordan pills, new new movie us terrifying. Yeah. The preview for that for vice and the theater was audibly upset. Somebody. I feel like it's aboard into the story that it was a black man was like why did they show was audibly going? Why the fuck did? They just show that right? That's what he's just wanna see Dick Cheney saying we came here for a different kind of or. But I mean that that preview is not a taste. I it's an experience. But I also I have started to tell myself that I can't watch trailers anymore. Just because I wanna go in fresh and like like a trailer like that I kind of what's going on. But I feel like my brain will piece things together. And then I'm like, I don't wanna go any expectation. So I'm like, I really wish I didn't see it. But for multiple reasons now, I mean, not because it's terrifying. Well, not because it's terrifying. But because it's like well the whole movies in a great trailer. It's rate trailer. Incredible has a musical callback later. It has them listening to the song. And then later it has like the haunting version I was like how does a trailer have a three act actor beautiful amazing, and you kind of under. Sand. Exactly what it's about. That's the thing. I wish I didn't understand what was about. I wish I could go in just going like because I feel like when I have so much time to piece together. What it could be about brain is like Strang solve the mystery. Whereas if I go into or moving on nothing that I'm like, I don't have time to solve them. I would've liked to seen us without any sort of. Yeah. Nita? I just was so excited to talk about how much trailer horse had. Yeah. And I could be wrong. We all be wrong. So you have to see you wrote a script. I did. Yeah. I've written a movie. So I think it's like jumping between different projects where like oh. This idea for movie in this movie. And this idea for a TV shows. I'm just like writing tended for things at once, which is the worst way to do anything. I have I have no need a dash of me. Maybe I do what I'm saying is I'm joking. And there's a way that everything that you're saying is amazing. Well, like if I was your biographer, I'd be like didn't wanna compromise, man. He didn't want to. He he used to hold up. Even that thing about like used to be in your bedroom. Watching adobe to to'real you were sort of like, I should have been down when my family. It's like, dude, you're like Paul Bunyan. That's like do that though. I like staying home can't hang out tonight. I'm working, and then I'm like, oh, I should have gone to the thing that all my fuck that shit, your friends can Secca, dick. And also, you're writing this movie and your writing multiple things at once like what I'm saying talk about a prism shift. There's the critical like it's bad to write a bunch of things at once. And then there's the prism shift of like, you're such a Ernest Hemingway genius that you're scattered over like five things because that's how much content you're constantly pumping out, and you're all content, but you mean, just talking, but I feel like like an executive being like, we need more we need more content. What do you got for us? Isn't that such a funny word we've gone from art to describe me as a content creator sometimes? And that's the thing that really hurts. The most like that's what it is. And it's like it's not wrong on the bar. It's peanuts on the need to put more peanuts. In the bull on the ball in the bowl in the bowl. Just like your. It's like being called the peanut maker. We people sitting at the bar court. Not not so though by drink. So they'll buy different Instagram ads. Sure. And meet the love of their lives. All the things you do at a bar, and we need you to fill the both salty or spicy peanut. So they want to buy drinks. It's sad. It is sad. But I also feel like I get it. I'm like, I chose to make the peanuts. Like, no one's being like, you gotta make these peanuts. I started having you never called them peanuts. Yeah. It was just it's like, I do all these things as hobbies for fun to try and get my name out there and just constantly be like I want people to be impressed with how much I'm doing within. Like people are just like that's a cool thing that you do. And I'm like, well, it's not what I do. It's just it's like the I'm trying to sell you in terms of how good I am at things. And I'm like, well, this is just a foolish thing you're doing if you don't want to be known for this. Do you want to be known for and that's filmmaking? I in. Yeah. Are you sure I say that? But then I just kind of like this is what every person again, I still feel like I'm just a child. That's every Dow's wanna make milky talking to you. And this this isn't condescending like your ex girlfriend. Oh, no. This is the twenty six I think you. Look put together. Thank you're right on track for your. The meanest Ono. I I said, it's. Partially to be funny. And I don't think you're like a master anything. But I think there's a lot of like when people see you. I don't think we're thinking you're as shaky as you as you feel. No, which is interesting because if you were like I'm renting a movie like this is not good or bad. I just wouldn't have been surprised at all. If you were like if you're framing was differently. Yeah. If you're like, I did vine I killed vine. I wrote for a show your twenty six written for several TV shows. Yeah. It's it'd be a TV show because I'm making like a I just liked to lemon face. Yeah. I'm like. Robidoux? That's another thing that you'll so raise about is. It's hard for me to complain. When it's like, I feel like from outside looking in. Everyone's like, yeah. You done a lot of things that are pretty good. And I'm like, but I'm not happy, and that's fine. Yeah. Britney Spears song lucky. You know, the song paid hit me. Baby lucky tired. That's she's so lucky. She's a star. But she cries cries cries in locating knows hard think and nothing. Missing. To bat. I love your. Oh, yeah. But even that like, okay. So you're not satisfied. Sure. Then it's like is anyone? Oh, man. This is a conundrum. Didn't why did we get here? There's what what's expected of us. And what we think we're supposed to be doing. Right. And then there's like what actually makes us feel fulfilled. And I have a lot of people in my life. That are like I wanna be this or this. And I'm like, I sometimes I don't necessarily understand which dream. They're chasing the one that's expected of them or the one that makes them fulfilled. But like when you're talking about what you should be doing. And how you should be feeling. It is it is curious. What are the things that make you feel the most fulfillment? That's the thing for me is that I don't fully know because it feels like I keep jumping the things where I'm like, I love this. And then it changes or like, I am doing things that I think I'll do just for fun and eventually start to feel a little bit fulfilment. But then it'll get away from me in a way where my own no, this is going to be what people think is my entire thing. And then I get it's always just like different aspects of doing the thing that is fine that starts making me feel unfulfilled. And I think that's just the way other people see me. During that thing I start to just come at odds with when it's it sounds like a lot of fear to. Yeah. It's is this something you've talked about in therapy. It's like every time it seems like we circle back to then people will think that that thing that I do. Yeah. It's almost like if we were going to be super hippy trippy about it. It'd be like in some past life you were like defined as Jim the Baker. And Jim the Baker kept trying to be a musician. They were like make us Crisan, Jim. And you're just like no one's gonna label me or trap may or cage me in any sort of way whatsoever, including your Patchett. I do what those pies though. Oh my God. Jim they're beautiful pies. But like, you know, spoiler you're gonna make the movie, and then people are going to think of you as a movie guy, and I'm sure at that point. I'll be like, well, I do other things too. I think it's just like my chronically unsatisfied that I think the fundamental problem. Mike. It be defining yourself by how other people see you. And that's why I'm sort of like the Demi that's going in his bedroom and watching to'real 's that's actual bliss. That's actual passion. You weren't doing it fantasy. Maybe were you tell me you weren't doing it fantasizing while walking the red carpet where you just doing it because you like film. Yeah. Making ship and feel that tinkering aspect of making shit is just so satisfying to me I feel like the dad like building a birdhouse in his garage, and it turns out like ship as like I spent a great two days mayor just fucking cut and stuff. All right. That's right. I love it. And then it sounds to me like somebody imposed on you the idea that you make peanuts. But you never set out to make peanut threat. And it's fucked up lens to see an artist through. But it's also like it's never meant in a mean way. It's just like, oh, I love this thing that you do. And I'm always just like in my brain accepts says, that's what you are. That's what you will always be in. Then I'm like, well, why turned this compliment into something mean, and I just need to be better about not. And limiting. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it sounds like you understand what you're doing. The problem is is much. I understand that. I can't stop doing. I feel like it's it's like just next time. You go in that. When you leave this garage. Just don't bring that bag with you. It is at symbol. But unfortunately, it's never it's not that simple. But I like. There's a there's a story that we're telling ourselves. So you have this what you've been doing? And then the story tell yourself is a little bit different. That's why I'm just inviting you to maybe say, it's not that I'm lack of focus that I'm like such genius. That's what I'm saying. When you need some me, all I'm I'm jokingly saying, I found ways to tell positive stories about the things that I'm doing even if they are problematic in and I'm saying totally I always like they're always going to be people that have a more, focus work regimen. There is going to be people that get up on stage more or seem to be happier. Or whatever it is. And there I needed to manufacture of waste that said. I'm not going to study how they did. It people are going to study how I did it. And that's not really like, a it sounds super cocky, the cockiness comes in telling people that. So you don't tell them, right. It's just like a little golden secret. You have inside where you're like. Yeah. My movie script. Is great and I'm gonna make that. But you know, what when you make that you aren't a moviemaker your fucking Demi. You're like a million things. And when you write on his show, you're not the writer, and when you make content. You're not the contact creator, your the constant through all of the changing. And that's something useful to rest of that. Here. The thing traveling through all of those things, I don't know. No, I said damn I'm just trying to give you some more stable footing. Don't thank you. But you are. But that is a very, and I'm saying this to make you feel less alone. I think that is the feeling of your twenties. Yeah. That's the feeling what you're feeling is. So many people are feeling that way. And then in your thirties. And I'm not saying you can't do it a little bit early in your thirties. You start to go like, yeah. I'm here regardless right? What's the point in constantly feeling like an anxiety about this? Yeah. Or caring. You can redefine yourself in in a in a snap in a moment. Like every moment every morning, you just kind of being a different thing. And you're going to keep changing evolving. And maybe this film is is the is the way to way too. I'm excited was the John r- crime comedy crime. Comedy. Yep. To some crimes are putting weight. So is it. It's a comedy. Yeah. Brought no subtle. Also, not it's hard to describe. It's it's just about a thing that happened. Like, a real thing that happened that I think is so fucking crazy. But also very stupid. And I was like I have to write this movie because if someone else does it I will never forgive myself for not getting to it. I love it. Yeah. And now is done. It's like I've spent like so long writing it that it's just like it's never done. But it is like it's in a place where he can absolutely tell someone every step of it. But I also have not like written out the script in full I. Yeah. Because it's just like I keep going back and be like, no. That's not right. That's not right. And like, deleting large swats of it. But it's like, I know what the movie entirely what you need what collaborating. Money. You know, it's so interesting man, I think there's an important aspect at some point Bob Dylan sat down somebody played them, you know, blowing in the wind even that song blowing in the wind famous. Bob Dylan song, no. Say the and they were like that's trash and he was like. I just mean like all the tours and stuff at some point. They were just like, you know, lack a role in rack, I love it stone, and these I get out of faith, you hack changes. It just this is not even on the same page of what we're doing. And I realize the other day. Bob, Dylan's voice is the halfway point between Billie. Joe Armstrong from green day, and Fred Schneider from the b fifty two. Wow. That's great. And you're right. Thank you. God, that's Billie. Joe? I read is welcome to paradise. He's right in stock and the road while stand up ready that is that's the entire bit that I leave that stage. Ready good? I'm going to be doing it at the forum tonight. Are you know, the forum what's the for this massive concert venue in Inglewood? It's like Kevin Hart would play there. Maybe. Kevin Kevin sell it. I don't know. My plan is to go out on stage and just wait until people. Tell them not Kevin Hart and see just how long it takes. It'd be immediately. He would I don't I would he's famous. He's the most he's at the most famous person. Yes. So how did you? We probably should have started here. But what is what is the what is the beginning? What is the origin story of you that got to this place of conflict 'cause you have done a lot. Yeah. And I bet a lot of people are listening, and they're like I would like to be twenty six and to be wondering why I'm not feeling more filled having done so many things. Sure. And with so many potentials down the line. I mean, you have an exciting future of you. Yeah. I I always just like, I don't fully know how it started. But I always wanted to do comedy. I was obsessed with comedy as a kid and watch like every episode of the Simpsons twice in like great. What a gift in the best show of all time. But it was just the kind of thing where I was obsessed with it on like this weirdly formulate levels being like, how did they work that joke offer like how does why is that funny and like just breaking those things down? And like, I was the class clown. On tried to be the class where your parents know. This is another thing when I told my parents I wanted to comedy I distinctly remember walk into the garage. My mom being like, are you funny? Because like, I didn't I wasn't like an openly comedic person with my family. I think a lot of funny people aren't they mean it's weird where we can be thinking about comedy more than we're necessarily being funny. Yeah. I think about like the most naturally funny people I knew in my life. They didn't become comedians. They're out there drinking, iced, tea, or whatever the fuck. They're doing. We're over here going like is is is is a lot of beverages. You know, say say is water. But you don't say is lemonade like, you're. You're stuck in your head kind of breaking down. Like is that something I can make funny later and naturally funny people sometimes are just like off the cuff. I'm here. I didn't even realize funny, right? What's I'm going, even swims funny? Whoops. I'm going to ups. Now, I'm swimming in everyone's is dying. So I get it. My mom didn't say are you funny? But I had a lot of friends that were like are you live? You know what? I mean. That'd be like, they probably were maybe more naturally. I definitely wasn't even like the funny one as a kid. I like distinctly. No, the people who were the funny ones that I was always like analyzing them. I was always analyzing them. But also just like in there like shadow just being like, oh, I wish I was you fucking die. And then like, I think when I left plano, Texas where I grew up. I was like this is a new place and now I can be whoever I want. I'm going to be the funny one. Is that funny? It eat if you ki resets in your life. You go to a new school? And you're like, they don't know that I'm diary. No one knows store. One personally is that diarrhea. God damn Facebook. They shared the one wiser video of me. For Nangle 's so you so you wanna do? Be funny, but you weren't necessarily. I think that is like super super label, but your parents weren't funny. My dad is like funny, and like just a charming guy. Like, he's the kind of person that even when he's having the worst day, and we're out at a restaurant. He'll just be like joking with the waiters in a way that everyone's like like he's a dad, but I also had love waiters heads love waiters. It's a new person test all your material they have to be there. And then so it's just an a captive audience home. My God, my dad makes the same jokes every single time and their WC fields jokes. I found out later. Really he goes, I don't drink. I don't drink water fish make Levin at beta w Seafield Joe got you to imagine my dad's like reading Laffy, taffy Rapids. Yeah. I'm gonna try that out of the Red Lobster God. Of course. And that at the crap check tonight. Kevin Hart can sell the grab Jack. Maybe. He can't get the people in the corner. I got them. So was it about the moment of laugh or was it? It sounds like it was more like the science of it. I think in some think understanding it was a science of it. But I also just think on some level. It was me trying to make people like me or being like, well, they can't hate me. If I make them laugh, and then it just catapulted into me being like, well, we'll there's nothing else that I wanna do even when it's like, I know this person likes me or doesn't hate me kind of like, well, this is my thing. It's what I feel most comfortable doing what I like the most. And also at the same time, I was like becoming video guy at school because of all the after-effects Israel's and shit. So it'd be like oh every class project. Like well. We gotta get me on our team. You do the craziest video fucking perfect score. And I was just like, yeah. But I love the tinkering of it. And I was like well can do comedy and videos together. Maybe I'll do that in some way. And so I would like one big thing for me was through high school. I started making these commercials for this website. That was like just like big. Would have like a creative brief they're just like, hey, here's the general premise or like general rules of what we want for commercial submit yours and maybe a win money. And like I was just obsessed with like making these commercials, my friends and just like we're going to get paid for all of these. And we got paid for like three of them. But I remember just being like, this is the greatest thing in my life. I never want to do anything. But make commercial wherever you got paid. It was technically the first money I ever made was like making commercials. Just weird Panasonic like SD card camera with my friends and like putting dumb effects in them. And being like, yeah. This is my shit. What we're the product was for Jack link's beef jerky, which is still like I think that's one of the finest ever make it still think it's kind of fun and funny we may Jacqueline's versus what we called the snack. Who's instead of the echoes elba's dressed up weird costume, that'd be fine. A versus this guy who had Jack link's beef jerky and ate a piece of the jerky. And then one of us got shot in the commercial. And they use it online. I think online. I never even checked where it went. But I was like, hey, you paid us money. That's good enough for me. So funny. Yeah. I think it's a wonderful climate that we live in. There are those little opportunities. Like you were coming up at a time that existed I was in my thirties when we were like, oh, you can make the Doritos commercial. You can make the heavy entered that I'm sure no just because I was like it's everyone enters it. There's no chance, and I was just like if I'm trying to get money off of this. I don't want to just throw it into a pool where there's a billion people interesting, but you could do cheap. I could do it. And now, I think it's less about the money and more about just being like, can I make something that I think is cool. So I would do it. But I'm also just like every I am too. Yeah. And every Doritos commercial now is like someone tries to go viral doing something. And it's just like I like what I d are kind of even left to be branded. It's very content creating. Yeah, it's it's someone going it's like bohemian rhapsody where they're like you need another hit like this. And they're like, we can't I guess there was a moment. I liked that movie. You learn from Hyun rhapsody. Well, I saw my own experience because they said we can't just make another head, and that is those meetings where they go we wanna video that goes viral. And you're like, yeah. Sure. Everyone wants also want success. Could we have both of those apple that a lot of times? I think of video concept first. And then I'm like, well, I don't know where that would go. So I'm just like, well, what if I thought of something and then later on was like, how do I fit Doritos into this, which is not how it goes? Right. I guess you do have to sort of start with Doritos and then lead to it. I don't you know what man when we were doing it. It was early on enough that I feel like. There weren't that many. Yeah. Like, we we got into the finals we didn't win or anything. But they're everyone else was like a film production. Ray rupe? It was like we were like, maybe they were others. But we seem like only true true true amateurs. Although no, the guys at one I think we're an matures, but they spend a lot of money on it. I don't know you got to put in something that is like if you don't win you just kind of like what what are we get out of this? But at least a video that you made I guess if nothing else it's very good real for you to show other people right now. Right. Well commercials. That's what I have for that. Well, well commercials. It was time spent it's the Larry of action. What we had some fun. I guess chef what was your first break. I mean, he started like interning for things and or peeing thing. Yeah. I was an input. It like how do you even do that? Like, so many people are like, how do you? And you did it. I got very lucky part of coming out. Here was I came out here for my last semester of college. I went to UT for film. And when I came out here, they have this program where it's like, oh, you go out for a semester, and you do an internship while you're there, I applied to be an intern events does company red hour, and Mike Rosenstein, who is the best and just like sort of got in. And this is all why was doing like, Twitter and vine stuff. So they sort of knew me as the guy who is doing stuff online on the internet. What nine like peeing for productions where I got to know like the guys for the new from vine. Yeah, they started. Well, I don't think they knew me before. But they saw that. I was doing that stuff. While also an intern at the company. Okay. This guy comedy. So eventually, I just like Rosenstein who was producing all the comedy stuff was like, okay. Well, he likes comedy. Well, if you wanna work these comedy things go for like he had a meltdown where I met you and like just a peeing on their different comedy productions and whatnot. And just getting in there. And then when I left I went to be office manager at the ADHD, if you know them they weren't animation studio that does not exist anymore. It was like they made next and Lucas broS and like from like short animation series, and I was doing that for a while just like moving computers and figuring out what angle to put TV's at. How did you get the first internship, though? I just reached out to a million people. It really was just like a shotgun approach of being like, okay, what's on entertainment careers dot net. And then sending them resume and being like, here's all of the things that I have done before. And I went to film school, and I'm capable of doing this. And I have a car, and I think they were just like, yeah, he works. I just got. Well, you weren't making any money. No. Were you working job or your parents helping? I my parents were helping. Yeah. Because I was I'm not saying that to embarrass you. I'm totally. She's an important. Yeah. It's not put my boot straps up in. Now, just got John dude everybody that saying they put their bootstrap. There's somebody. There's usually there might be. Somebody to the side. That's like, yeah. If you can't eat we'll help right? And it's always like there's like you're not the most layer privilege where it's like, your parents pay for everything. But it's like if you go down if you steps there's something where it's like a lot of people don't have that. And for me, it was not that deep. It was I was still in college. My parents were taken care of me, right? Or I was living off of just saved money. I have that part of the story is usually skipped over I like, including it. So so you they Vining they were like thing, and then the ADHD, and then the thing, and then I left ADHD because someone who was an assistant at read our went onto work at funny or die. And which is kinda like we're putting together a digital team. I know you like did all those cool vine stuff all that. Cool. Vine stuff with tiny men. You didn't want to be known as the vine guy and twice vine open the door for you. It keeps becoming a thing where it's just like all these things that I'm trying to be like, that's not me, whatever it's like. Yeah. But it's still very helpful to us. Then I'm like we'll jump back in. And again, I think to Bo is like Bo was like, I'm not a YouTube personality, but the way that. He kind of put that argument. Rest was just like making other great stuff. But I I don't know fi. Well, now, probably he probably had some of that intensity to what intensity the intensity that's got damn it. I'm not a vine guy. Yeah. There's like a piece you can make with it where it's like I was excited. The first time I saw you because I knew about because I knew from vine, and that's okay. No. Yeah. It's not a bad. It's it's I think that I just always dealing with this. I think also the internet makes it so much worse because you see all of the people who interact with you on just that level. Instead of just like every so often you come across the person when she was like, oh, I like this thing because if it's just if it's happening constantly than you are beaten down with the idea. It's like this is all that you are to everybody where it's like, you're not on the internet seeing everything that everyone says about you. Then you don't know and making things for fun. That's right. Like, keeping your eyes on your paper. Exactly. Yeah. That's a that's a good lesson. You look over the other paper. They're just writing that guy's finer. That's right. And you don't even need. To look no gonna fail the test. It's like like, I didn't see a single Gilmore guys comment about my. Sewed? And therefore, I'm one of the greatest episodes of that party ever been top-five classic the way that I knew the show the way that I understood the podcast, whether you turn it into a madman podcast on the media. Did I I think I remember like we're talking about madman a lot. But also don't think that's bad because so much of that podcast us going to other things. I mean, all right. We gotta talk more about Gilmore girls and people. Hard to stay on Gilmore girls hard to. Yeah. But it was fun. What a great time. And then where where did the first writing job come because that's tricky too. So I was working on at midnight and also doing Gilmore guys at that point Viney stuff. Yeah. I was doing so many different like digital creation things. But I think I told so many people I wanted to be a writer, and then I went to college for writing and film, and at the same time, I like got to be friends with magnum ramification har- who were working on the good place with my sure, and I think they had like a video I had made it come to their attention because it was like parks and recreation, then tire rooms parks and rec people and at the same time, they were looking for new staff writer, and they put my name in the ring, and I got to meet with Mike, sure and David miner. And I just I think the interview went well enough that they were like, yeah. Let's give them a shot. A well. That's grantable. Yeah. But it is another story which is kinda like yet. It's people, you know, you gotta know people do, but you. Put yourself in a position to know people. Exactly. And you were here. Yes. You could have been in Texas still could have been in Texas still. Thank god. I wasn't. And you could have not been making six dollars video. It was really I gotta give it up for vines. I gotta give it up for. Even just trying to think of one Vinai did what at did the other Viner's? Where are they a lot of them jump to YouTube or like podcasting? I think I don't know people just followed whatever their thing was. Yeah. Yeah. A lot of people are doing Instagram videos. Now every time I hit the explore page. I see someone doing a weird sped up face. And I'm like, okay. That's mean and snide, but I people are more filled by what happened to that guy. That was like, did you know that guy that was like, and that's my life. He was. The Tino think I do not know who this person, we gotta go. Out of this area. No, he's Latino describing more. Oh, wait, wait fucking Rudy Rudy. I think he's a musician. Now, he was a great musician. Yeah. So is there any of his vines were just like what the fuck like in playing the piano? I think I think there's always like on vine. You would always certain things where you can. That's what the person wants to do. And that was one of his where you just kinda like, you wanna make music, man. You want to do cool musical thing. But then he was funny. He made funny videos, and it was like what's going on what's going on? I think some level like you had to on vine like you couldn't just some people stray a made a career out of just being musical vying. So I don't know what I'm saying. True. Yeah. Tori, Kelly whose like now just this incredible pop star was I singing stuff on vine, really. And I think Shawn Mendez was too. I'm gonna go away. What advice go away didn't make money didn't make money? Why did it cost so much money that it needed to make so much money? Every second you saw ten dollars. Get outta my face. Well, I are you aware because I wasn't aware of the Gilmore girls this as we talk about the meaning of life and on. Yes, we raised a religious. I was I I mean, I think for my parents religion was very cultural to them. They were they were born and raised my jour-. Well, not born they were raised him edgier. Where were they my dad was born in England. Yeah. That's how we gonna. Son off link. This is the best kind of. That's my mom's voice wishy born she was she was born in Nigeria. Okay. Yeah. I was also born in London though. Yeah. Left when I was three years old though. So it's barely a connection for me. Just a fun thing. I like to mention we have the dual said I do have dual said. Yeah. Yeah. So they were raised what they were raised just Christian. I don't think there's any denomination of Christian. Because when they came to America, they found like a nondenominational church and took me, and it was just this thing that I as a kid was like church again. So I heard is it's on I always loved whenever my parents like just couldn't be bothered to go to church. Hell, yeah. I get my Sunday back, and then I did nothing anyways. So I know that's the feeling of life it, really. Oh, man. If I if only I didn't have to go to this thing. And then it's cancelled just cut seized sitting on the couch looking on your phone. Yeah. You wanted. It's that Mullany joke. Cancelling plans like heroin. Yeah. I don't know. I think he said in terms of instant relief cancelling plans like doing heroin where it's just the most freeing like like, oh, yeah. No, Jimmy Kimmel said if it's on the calendar. I don't wanna do it. And I was like that is my life. I love that. So you went to what it was just a dumb thing. Yeah. And there were a little points where. Ah suddenly expires. Whereas like, oh, maybe I do really feel this. But then it would always like quickly fade away. She's kind of like, I don't wanna be here during the music or the sermon. Like what what clicked I think there was one time where I went to a church camp. And I remember just hearing a story in a room with people and just being so enthralled by it. But I was that. I was just gonna like, wow, my faith is strong. It's ever been before. And then like, I think by the end of the campus. I don't know what that was about interested. What was the story of? I don't even remember. But somebody was telling like probably an emotional story. Yeah. I think it was probably a car accident. No. It was like a story from the bible. I wanna really. Yeah. I think it was like someone being put in a furnace or something is that? Oh, Chad rack me shacking Bendigo. Maybe those are basketball players. Yeah. Okay. The next. Yeah. He's on fire. Guard shatter Agni Jag in Bendigo. I can't tell the story with the right details. Yeah. But they were thrown in a furnace, and they did not burn up. Yes. And remember they were like walking around in the furnace. I remember hearing that story and just being like that's insane. God's power. And then I don't remember what happened like why that feeling faded. But I also just remember being like, oh, what a weird spike in my faith. That has never really returned. Yeah. But it's not like, I'm I don't think of myself as an atheist now. I'm just kind of like, I don't think about religion. So I'm just floating around being could exist who knows. That is the most honest. I don't explanation of that a lot of people have that. Yeah. But I I don't like sitting in the idea. It's like, no, he definitely doesn't. It's crazy. Everything is crazy. The fact that we're hearing that there was a before. And after it all makes no sense. Why am I going to sit here and tell you that like he does he couldn't possibly I don't care doesn't affect my life in any way. If he does her infinite possibility, infinite possibilities. Okay. And I also don't think of as religion is only the conceit that God doesn't exist. But it's just all stuff. And I'm like, I don't think about it enough to place myself in any camp. So why take a stance at all? But even though you heard stories of people being thrown in furnaces and stuff it it didn't like scar. You or traumatize you in the idea that you're like I need to be with this guy. No, I need to be with the guy that protects people in the furnace. I do think it's like the thing of saying their eighth foxhole where it's like, oh, I think in the best case scenario, I could just believe in like follow my life. According to the rules Christianity, and at the end of my life just be like, well, if it was all for nothing, then a well. But if it was all for good then thank God. I did it. But at the same time just kind of like. Like, what principles would I need to follow that? I don't already naturally follow. And what I would following them make my life like worse. Or would it make my life? Just me trying to constantly live up to this thing. Where like why doing this? If not for like if sorry, here's the thing. I understand what you're saying. Yeah. You're already being moral. So you don't need it for some sort of ethical lifeguard. Right. Your life is already pleasant. You're getting fulfilment and things like I'm not I don't feel a lack. So you don't feel like the need for like a life system to be imposed on sword. Some just like what extra thing would I need to do to be following the tenets of Christianity that I wouldn't be doing. And if I need to follow them than it is is it like a true and pure life. My going to go like die meet God. And he's going to be like, well, you were doing it all just to meet me. So it doesn't count. Like, I think that's so interesting. I what you're talking about is pass cows wager, which I hate. Yeah. Which is like you might as well believe in God. Because if you die. Of get to meet him. And I'm like, well, what kind of God is fooled by that. But the idea for me of spirituality being that there's like an awakening there's a way to view the world a little bit more lightly. Then that is beneficial to me, that's one of the reasons why I find it interesting. Of course that probably something that might come later. Maybe not at all. But you're not worried about like what happens when you die, for example. I mean, I'm constantly worried about it. But not in any meaningful way where I'm just like it's worth thinking about or changing my life to prepare for that. Because I just feel like the meaning of life is to make something good either for yourself future generations. And if I'm constantly worrying about how to like prepare for death, and I won't be able to fully live in any meaningful ways. I'm just like don't just it's gonna happen. Nothing. I say or do we'll stop it from happening. Let it go. There's a where wolf in the room? Let's just eat dinner. Yes. Exactly what I was thinking Rault is acting like there isn't aware Wolfman room these tacos, or these we he's a delicious warned don't wear the where. We'll funny don't look there. Where all it's gonna eat us. Enjoy your talk Ohs. But you think it's over when you die. I do. And I think I mean, what's funny is listening to Bowes episodes podcast ages ago, sort of cemented one of the reasons that I think I do he said something where he was like if like one party or brain is damaged then like so many things are fucked up. So it makes no sense that all of it being damaged is like you're up in this different place. Now to me. It's just like I think that the brain at some point loses all function, and then you just are gone like you don't have any cognitive ability to imagine a different place, and it's not like all of your brain dying is like an unlocking to adore. It's like well now that you're completely dead. Welcome to this different place. Right. No soul. Then I the idea that being sort of put. To the side is the idea that your brain, which is constructing reality and perceiving reality. And having thoughts and memories and interpreting things is a tool of your soul. You're right. I don't think I believe that per set. To it's over. I think so I mean, I would also like sort of terrifying. Think of attorney as a conceit or as a concept, it's like, well, when you die you're going to live forever, and it's other place 'cause I think just be so aware of that. And being like, we'll I'm just gonna live forever. Like, it just doesn't see interesting. I think we're in eternity right now actually been thinking about that a lot lately is like this. Is it turn it? Right. It's not like you die in a turn. It begins. We're in. We're participating in eternity. Right. Yeah. And there is a son going around our rock, and that gives us the sense of time in days, and we know we the K at a certain rate. But really in the timeless moment that is turn ity. And it doesn't start when we died something. That's happening right now. Yeah, let's smoke. This. And because it's an easy. They're going forever. It's not so equally terrifying to me. Yeah. But you know, my, and I don't think I haven't figured out. But I'm like, it just seems like whatever this is just gonna keep undulating. You know? I don't see a lot of just like. And then it ends. We just LOP it off. And it's got a gun. I see a lot of like undulating like a fountain. Yeah. Like the way that the water. There's no water in the found, but it just keeps going around around and therefore that than the benefit of spirituality or MRs him would be to stop playing the game right to be to get out of the fountain potential a lot release realize you're in the phone about the concept of reincarnation. And how it's like that would be there's something sort of relaxing about the idea that you might come back in a different form of just sort of get to play the game again. Yeah. And I think it's fascinating. But I also just like is it like, I don't know. I think a lot of thinking is it wishful thinking? Or is it also just like would it matter? Like how what is the what is constant if you were come back with a different person? You don't know you're the previous person like what is if you're being reincarnated like what is it's like the the feces paradox, or what is it called the ship of feces where it's like how many pieces can be replaced before. It's the same thing or. Yeah. Yeah. So it's just like if you are reincarnated as different being. But you don't know that you've you're that previous being are you really the same person or you just like you like you light a candle with another candle is at the same flame. Yes. Yeah. Any blowout? The first candle. It's at the same. Yeah. I I'm with you, man. I I'm not in the mood to like try to solve it you in or even try to solve it intellectually. I think we can do it. I think we can. But. But put us together. That's true collaboration. We've never been in this little slice of Infinity in new there you go. But yes, so I'm not really in the mood to try and write some poem with you. That's gonna like he'll complete great about it. I think I think the mystery is really interesting. And it's enough for me today. Sam I don't know. Sometimes I catch myself going that sounds like wishful thinking the idea that it is a game. And we're going to keep we're going to keep going around and round until we learned something. Right. But then I also there's other times. I don't really care. I'm at a point where I'm like, I don't really care if my brain can make sense of it. I like to say Pete, isn't enlightened. But I am there's something behind my brain. That just goes like look at Pete Demi trying to put words to something that's speak a ball and trying to get their hands around something, that's grabble. And that's all part of it. That's all part of the dance. It's all part of the play. But behind it is something that is so unconcerned with that. Yeah. And my elemental essence doesn't care that I have days where reincarnation sounds like probable and days where it doesn't. I'm not in the business. I used to be of converting my intellect. Sure, I enjoy using my intellect, but he is such a fucking wayward undulating fluctuating changing. It's so what I'm saying is like when pe- was fifteen he was so sure he was that. And when he was twenty five you associate was that he thought fifteen was wrong. And now, I'm thirty nine and I'm so sure on this. They're never right. But what is consistent? It's like we were saying about your career. There's an essence there's a basic awareness behind it all that it just kind of going like look at the fucking show. This this life is chef it's fine. But it's not the fucking point. I'll be here. When when you're ready be here. I think the only thing that can that. I the only reason I'm even constantly thinking about it is because I think of it as like this weird great riddle that it's like there might be an answer. And maybe someone will figure it out. But the second one does figured out all of life is just gonna blink out of existence. But I don't think that that's reasonable or any sort of. I don't know what that's based on. It's just like I don't think about it most of the time. But anytime anyone asks me about them. It's kind of like what let me put all the pieces of this puzzle together and solve it. What's the right answer? But then I'm like, it doesn't matter. And I don't think about it. Why am I trying to solve it in this moment? Yeah. I think that's part of it. I do like to imagine God like up in some weird white space. They think they're gonna get it and get it. Yeah. God is run funches. Right. Of course in this. He's going to walk the USA. I'm in. No you had one either. Go for it. Go for it right now. That's it. That's that confident. I've got the Pete in me. Man, Pete barely has beaten him too. But I'm glad we talked about. Well, I love that. God chat, we happy. Bingo. Good. I love talking to you to talking to you everything you want to promote here at the end. I just got a motorcycle. I do a podcast called punch-up. The jam we. Yeah. New podcast. We basically talk about hit songs. Just go line by line through lyrics. Go like are these lyrics insane. And they more often than not are. Yeah. And then at the end of every episode we have like we do a punch up of it. Which is under the conceit that since the song is crazy. We fixed it, but it's really us just making like a parody version of the song, so fun. It's a lot of work. But it also just very fulfilling, and it's fun to do another podcast this great. Yeah. And I'm gonna will Tyler Durden reference. I have no idea who that is your answer. Raymond. He haven't seen fight club. No. I'm kidding. I've seen fight club your fun, fun friend. I want someone to Tyler Durden you and you'll be Raymond and be like you're going to finish, Raymond. Raymond is the convenience store worker that he takes him back. And makes it look like he's going to kill him. If he doesn't become a vet veterinary. Yeah. I it's like, I I want that Demi movie man, let's get it. I wanted to. Finish it up someone. Someone just emailed me. I'll give you a billion dollars. I right. I also I want you to find someone you can show it to even if it is just a friend because I I'm sorry that I'm taking this on it. No. You might be deleting. The best parts. I'm you know, what I mean? You don't know. That's I wrote a book. Right. I give it to my editor, my editor cut out huge swaths of it. But at least it was an impartial second person. That would just like I just don't think this is what your going for like they're trying to tune in. They're trying to become a satellite to your planet. You're still the planet. But they're like look from what I know about your planet. I think you're movie is more like this and not this. So I don't know if we need, this takeout scene. So we're going to take out the takeouts. You know what I mean? Like if you're just doing it. You might be at the mercy of your moods. You might just be like the day that you're low you cut that scene that might have been the lobster seen in any hall. You know, what I mean because you were feeling low find that friend. Yeah. And the thing is like every time I write anything and show it to someone. I always get very like notes that I'm like, yeah. I do agree with that. So I don't know what I'm afraid of. But also kind of like, I think on some level even just the process of finishing. It is hard to me because I'm just kinda like it's never going to be what I want it to be. It's never going to be perfect. So I'm just like, I just put all these other things. Well, that's why that's why showbiz has two things built into it. Collaboration if forces collaboration. Yeah. So that's like producers, and all these people are and the network and the studio or whatever it is. So it forces that. Yeah. Because it knows that it's good. Probably sure. Even if you're going to be an autour, and you're gonna maintain ninety percent use that ten percents important to get a little bit of feedback. And then the other one is a deadline. That was going to say that's the big thing for me is made it hard for me to just make something without I I realized that book I'll never be done. Yeah. They'll just be a week where I just go like that sad. The biggest book. Yeah. We're just journaling. Or a movie, right? It's just a fictional journal person. That's never exists. Yeah. I the big thing for me to have realized is telling someone else, and I'm going to have it to them by certain date because I'm like, why can't disappoint them? And that's the biggest motivator for me getting any ever done. But it's hard when it's something that I'm writing for myself. And the only deadline is like my manager was kind of like, I didn't meet and they're like, all right, whatever we'll sell the idea. I I don't know how to do that. I mean, I do. But I don't know how to it's like we'll know who's going to buy an idea from someone. That's not done it before. I mean, I suppose I think what my manager might say, or what other managers is you need to make like a short foam or something something you can produce on your exactly. And then if you make a nice short film than people would be like, hey, do you have any feature ideas? And then they'll pay write the script. I have been trying. I I like one of my big resolutions for this year was just another big thing that I mean, just in terms of wanting to direct and make stuff is like I either wanna make a short film or start making music videos, because I'm fucking obsessed with music, videos and just as using them as a form for short form, art. Yeah. I'm like, well, I just have to reach out to people and be like, hey, let me make a music video for you. Totally. And it's so hard for me to do because it's just me asking someone to do something. And I'm like, that's always a weird. Yeah. Somebody I'm start. Maybe we'll hear this and they'll reach out to you on Instagram. They're going to be like, hey, man. I heard they want to make a music video. Let me just say Joan. But you're absolutely right. The small things, but you're not out of order anything. You'll have the script and you have the idea ready. Locked and loaded ready to go, right? You're just like a short film away. Like Orrin the guy who directed my Batman video horn got. Yeah. He got his directing jobs and producing jobs from making those really in part. He was making other stuff. Yeah. And then the other thing though, not not giving you this advice. I whenever we're doing. This is helpful to remember just make the music video or the short film because you wanna make that table is want to carve that desk, you know, for its own sake. And then enjoy the opportunity to get to later people can feel it if you're just like you're just making this to prove. But you know, what I don't know, man. The thing is only Lena Dunham make tiny furniture. You know what I mean? Yeah. That those are the stories we need to like he need to listen to some Lena Dunham podcast. I got everyone says I should be listening to more Lena Dunham just not doing enough. But I mean, she was your age or younger. I oh, that's yes. And she may tiny furniture. So I wish I could tell you. But I know that they're podcasts where she's talking about that. And Jordan's different. 'cause he had key and Peele. But there are other and bows different. But both not bad different. I think one big thing for me is also just I keep doing too many different things. And it's like just taking up all the time that I would have to even do this one thing that I really wanna do like a steppingstone to me doing big things and she's like going. Oh, no, I'm going to do this podcast, which I just wrote it this podcast or like, I'm going to do this writing fear of failure. Feel failure failures like as long as I don't allow myself to collect in this one area. Then I can't be fully rejected. But it would be like maybe it's time to start going. Okay. I'm going to be vulnerable enough to say I worked really hard on the short film. I hope people I get. It's so fucking set some goals. Right. Some goal. Yeah. Now's the time to do that. I just fine. I thought your thirty four you're doing fine. I feel thirty four. I just it's also just it's fine. As I am. I think also just we live in the worst city in the worst industry for this. Where it's just like you see other people doing it. And they're also your age you just kinda like, well, then what it's my problem. I'm sure they are also feeling the same thing. But it's just everyone's filled by different things. And you kind of go like if they can do. I can I do what am I not doing? That's right, right. Yeah. I mean, I it sounds like we uncovered the idea there is we need to own the vulnerability of putting yourself out there. Right. And what you do with that. Here's the great news is these conversations, and these thoughts that you're even having with yourself and other conversation that you're having about this. They they don't just like pass through you. Yeah. They're accumulating somewhere in your brain. And eventually one day you're gonna go it's time to and make my clerks. I'm gonna make my short movie clerk. Yeah. And that's gonna lead to the making of get in get in get out to get in. I got also get the rights to get out to make get him because it'll be a legal over one. And then you could make no trust. The Spanish language where they're listening to you know, Spanish music in the car, and then he sees a Hobo trip in blood, and then another Spanish family comes. I'm actually going to call it y'all if you wanna get loco we can get local. Oh, I love it. All right. Well, listen your bike as in. We're all gonna love your movie, and it's going to be out in twenty twenty two. So soon, I know, okay. Twenty two if you're the person I'm behold into now. Dude, you got to sell this group this year, you're going to get that. Okay. Thanks for doing it, man. You gotta say keep it. I was going to say do we still say the thing? Yeah. You do it. Keep it crispy. Hell, yeah. I've dreamt of them. See I did it only took me five. We're not gonna study. How other people do it? We're gonna. Yeah. Just an ordinary. Demi. Crispy. I'm so crispy.

Dave & Amy FRANK SWIETEK

"Hey it's amy chow. Drop welcome to the k. l. i. f. real news information in the morning podcast. I'm dave williams. Podcast is bits and pieces of our show this morning. Some of the stuff. We think that you'll find really interesting and enjoyable. We do it every morning. On five seventy klif. And here's what we talked about six seven. Okay means it's time for franks week tech and we both parties from one guy's opinion dot com morning. Frank happy friday. Good morning good. How are you good. We will get it right. we promise. Let's begin with a trailer. Called little things department. Favorite things probably changed a lot since he left. Still gotta catch up. Not that much i can assure you are. We are taking the twenty four seven all hands on deck approach to these cases. This one stars denzel washington. Who is absolutely incredible likewise well this is the first of the warner brothers movies Being released simultaneously to aiders and on. Hbo max You know that very controversial arrangement. That warner brothers entered into To meet the needs of the pandemic It's a police procedural set in nineteen ninety in los angeles and it feels like it was written in the nineteen nineties. It's very indebted to seven that great thriller that Came out in. Nineteen ninety-five with morgan freeman and brad pitt And it throws in a bit of training day to go along with Denzel washington plays a guy who a few years previously had been On the la police force a chasing a serial killer He didn't solve the case and it practically ruined him. now he's a deputy upstate he comes back to town win. Another serial killer is operating in los angeles and he links up with the young detective who's assigned to head the investigation of that case To track down the killer and they fastened on prime suspect of played by Jared A really sleazy character and they tried to get the goods on him but they're unable to do so because they're quarry such cunning. Crafty guy This picture wants to be very clever very deceptive but it doesn't have the diabolical intensity that seven had it moves very slowly It's a real disappoint but it promises a lot. The pedigree is very good. washington is good. Remmy malik on the other do plays the young detective. He's the guy who won the oscar for bahamian rhapsody. He's straitjacketed by his Rather prim and prissy role I was very much disappointed By the little things other people might be Feel differently it does hold your interest but by the time it's over you're likely to say is that all there is to. It might be an okay way to pass a couple of hours. I guess that's about it all right. That's called little things moving on. We've got justin. Timberlake is an ex con. Who starts a friendship with a boy from a troubled homes called palmer beer. Floats palmer mama's coming back. I wish i did. Like i was good at anything until sam martier. That little voice is just heart wrenching. And the kid is very good. Ryan allen is his name This is a very well meaning message. Movie justin timberlake plays an ex con. Who comes back to his small louisiana town moves in with his grandma who welcomes him with open arms and She her house right next door. Is this trailer Where this woman Drug addict Played by juno temple lives with her little son. Sam and the The son sam is what is now called gender non conforming. He's very effeminate kid. likes to play with dolls and watch. Tv shows with princesses on them and whenever his mother goes off on a bender Justin timberlake's grandmother takes him in and during one of these sojourns when he's living with them The grandmother dies and so justin timberlake is left to take care of the kid himself and becomes virtually his guardian and protector against the bullies in the town And of course when the mother comes back there's a custody fight really as to who's going to have charge of the the boy. The intentions of this movie are excellent But it's presented in a very heavy handed way and it never really considers whether justin timberlake's character is a proper guardian for the kid. Anyway he still drinks very Heavily he has a history of violence and he obviously has anger management issues from the way he acts. So you're left wondering whether this kid has any good options basically but the movie doesn't address that fact and unfortunately timberlake is not a very charismatic or communicative actor So he's pretty dull throughout the picture. As i say the boy ryan allen who plays the kid is very good but he really can't make up for what is otherwise. A pretty heavy handed message story right. I guess justin timberlake should keep to And not acting next that was called palmer next nextstep. A heart touching film about two friends who set on a trip together as their first time together is the most important thing that they have. It's called supernova. Good to get back on the road again. Those if you had one wish in the world what would it be. I wish this holiday wouldn't it. So can you tell that. It's gotten worse boy. I hope you like this one. Yeah this is a basically a tear jerker but it's a good cure jerker it's one that's elevated by good writing and by really superlative performances From colin firth and stanley tucci who play a longtime gay couple. One of whom is suffering from early onset dementia. That's the stanley tucci character. He's a writer who can't even remember how to write anymore and his memories are simply in decline. He's also an amateur astronomer. And he compares what what is happening to him to the death of a star. the that's where the supernova comes from And they go on a long road trip to the north of england where colin i character who taken a hiatus from his career as a contra. Concert pianist is supposed to resume performing. You can practically tell whether this story is going to end up of course because of the premise that's been established but nonetheless. It's beautifully told the acting by. I is really excellent The dialogue is very sensitive It doesn't get heavy handed. The way palmer does for example And it has some beautiful visuals of the english countryside at to boot supernova which is available on video on demand month. It's the interest right. Now is really a very sensitive film. It's one of the better films you'll be able to see this month. All right We're going to move ahead and we'll just skip the trailer because we're running short on time but we couldn't let you get away without telling us about your horror flick of the day of the week. Saint maude yes. Saint martin is a really weird story of a woman who is afflicted by religious mania. She's a nurse has had a breakdown in her role in a hospital and so she becomes a personal caregiver. to ballet star who suffering from terminal cancer and she wants to convert this woman. She believes that she has a message in a mission from god to convert this woman and things get very very difficult when the woman rejects her attempts to convert her and they separate. They split up And marred issue now calls herself. Saint mod begins to have visions of god. And here's god speaking to her in welsh for some reason Who tells her to in effect Give a message to the world. And i'm not going to reveal how she does this at the end of the movie She does it in a very outrageous over the top Way which is both hypnotic and unsettling saint mart is not a film for everyone. It's very artistically made. It's it's very odd it. Just traffics in weirdness. But it is deeply unsettling and if you're interested in that kind of small film which questions the tenets of faith really And which asks you to believe In this kind of mental deterioration of that an over emphasis on religion can bring to some people Saint martin is very effectively. done so as i say it's not a pitcher for everyone but if what i just described appeals to you in any way this is a film that does that very well movie reviewers in wales saying for some reason. Most of these people are talking in american english. Thanks thank you frank. That is interesting. Why would god speaking wealth all right. It's thanks there's frank sweet tech you can see all of his great work. At one guy's opinion dot com. There you have it some of the best moments from our show.

In Contempt

Happy Hour: A Shot of Conversation

29:41 min | 2 years ago

In Contempt

"It. You're listening to happy out of conversation. Officially happy hour took Stanley joined by my fellow conversation on exogenous y'all junior able to everybody I'm Canadia. So in honor of our last podcast of black history month, we are going to mix it up with all things black history, and then a little wretchedness. So we are going to start off with the ninety first Oscars on and the reason that we are talking about ninety. I Oscar is is a couple years ago. We carried on the conversation Oscar so white, and although there is still progress to be made it can be said that this year's Oscars wasn't Oscars of representation, it was an Oscar of redemption. And the reason I said that is that several key players within black Hollywood one much deserved awards. Specifically, spike. Lee for black klansman Mahershala Ali for best supporting in his role in green book, our very favorite Regina king for her role. Supporting actress in if Bill street could talk Hennion Beechler also wine for Black Panther as well as Ruth Carter for Black Panther. And then we also have an honorable mention which goes to ram me Malik because I think it speaks to the overall fact that the Oscars are becoming more Representative of who we are as Americans given the fact that Remmy Malik is an immigrant from Egypt. So I will love to know. Did you guys watch? Did you watch the highlights? How did you feel? How did you feel about the awards where you happy or do you think there was still some travesties even in the awards that I just mentioned I watched not the whole thing. I was like what was doing. But I missed the first hour, but I watched after that. And then I saw some highlights and I thought overall it was. It was a show. Oscar is always like dairy boring to me this show. Actually, I was kind of entertained. I was more. So interested to see what it was gonna be like hostess and four it being a hopeless show. I will say it actually moved pretty efficiently on surprised by that. But it was it was interesting as far as some of the highlights that made me happy, Bradley Cooper and lady Gaga their performance when that happened. There's the chemistry there that is insane. And. I think if anything a lot of people were just focus on that reformers, also like he did have his girlfriend there with them sit on the front row. And yeah, it was it was interesting. I don't I don't think anything is going on beyond that. So, but it was it was definitely interesting beyond that. I really enjoyed that Spiderman into this by divers one. How did I forget that was the major thing especially since Disney Pixar usually dominate the animated categories in the wars Spiderman to the spider verts sewn. He. So that was that was really good Ainhoa as far as the no the upset go. We we all know what happened when green going for best picture, Spike Lee early got up and try to leave the data. Do they show this? No, yeah. And they literally had his top have been like basically talk him into going back in. Okay. And then when they ask him about it in the what do you call it the pressroom after he has some things to say, so. Travesties y'all got it wrong. They compared it to dislike driving miss daisy. And do the right thing back in the day. Like, it's just it's one of those things where the movie already has so much controversy. And even though they're highlighting diversity is different things. The fact that they still was not question despite thing black Klansman's should've one, of course, he didn't. But that okay. Of course, he did come on. It's like. Respect that. What do you think is comes on weird? I one of the things that I love about Spike Lee is he has been unapologetically himself since day one. Since before we knew he was the entire length of his career. He's been authentic to chew. Kind of how he sees the world. And so I think that that we can argue to different things, right? We can argue whether or not green book deserve to win. So that's one statement and then separately if we do nothing green book should have one who in fact shit of one. Right. So I think that and just to kind of be transparent with our our listeners in case. They're not aware of the controversy regarding green book and correct me if I'm wrong, the controversy is the family feels that the account was there were there were several aspects of the story that were false. They were false. They argue that a lot of them the portrayal of of of their family member was. Arguably kind of defamatory, and then I think the larger issue is again kind of going to the driving mistakes. Even though I Ron this is the reverse pun intended. It's a matter of the story is from the viewpoint of the white driver. Not the black genius. There's an as third was back the rain book historic the history of green book doesn't match the actual movie when you hear green book, the green book was literally the book that guided black people from the south to their destination wherever they may be in America. That's where you knew we're Blackie could stay that's where you knew a black people can eat. That's where you knew what roads you could include travel on time. You knew who your allies were on your journey out of the south. So naming the movie green book when you hear it. But people were initially excited. I finally, and then we heart with the move of our like that what they got the basic. So you're basically saying what they did is they took the play on words and actually did the exact opposite. That's very fair separate offline conversation. That will probably have anyone wants to have with me is. Carrying on the conversation of the actual green book that a lot of people say that when arguably we quote unquote, with the passage of the Civil Rights Act that several of those businesses went under that we then stopped we stopped on patronizing, those businesses who actually arguably allowed us to live in allowed us to survive. It allowed us to eat to be lodge over them so on and that arguably once the civil rights was enacted than arguably what we did is we then went to white racist establishments simply because the law had changed nine could. And we finally could. And therefore we forgot about. Black patrons who had protected us for all of those years. And so, you know, arguably one of the things is someone needs to recreate it the green book or a story about the rain because I book is it has been in the works. I didn't John legend was was behind and for some time that end of black Wall Street story. No. And I think they're I think they're both profound. But I think also too. And I mean, I know that we have we buy black and black Wall Street, but I think that there does need to be a more formalized network of black businesses and black hotels. Even for instance, didn't Airbnb get in trouble a couple years ago that there was a lot of racism going on. And that's why I think and I just cannot remember the name of it. But there is now a black version of Airbnb that is very black people friendly. So I bring it up to say that it's kind of unfortunate that as we're closing out black history month in twenty nineteen. We're still having conversations about spaces in which we cannot not only not be. We cannot be safe. Yeah. You know? I wish I would have. No, I'm tired of backtrack. I did not know Spike Lee was about to walk out. What's likely finally did win for spike Lee's, rightly has been very vocal two years ago? He was saying buck the book off. Yeah. He said it out of his mouth so to come back in win at this point that does say something. But at are we still expecting the Oscars to pick the movies to win that we want to win 'cause they built wasn't even nominated in the best picture category. The fact that that even happened a lot of people were lied only supporting. All we out we out right now. Well, okay, this this thing is I think it's twofold. I think that we have to have Boll conversations. So at the end of the day, it's a club that we didn't create and to me whenever it's a club that we didn't create you kind of can't assume for them to be like you, right? However, by nature of my limited understanding of the academy, the the academy's membership base. Yes. Right. So the difference is I do think that the movement we've been making in the last couple of years has been moving us in the right direction. Because we now have a more diverse academy. So we have a more diverse group of voters who are voting on things that they want to see. So even for instance. And the reason I think it's a it's a it's a year representation. It's like. We in terms of the even just in terms of the red carpet. Like who who we were who I was excited to see? Right. The key people. I was excited to see all of the cast and crew from Black Panther all the cast and crew from crazy rich, Asians, all of the cast and crew from if Bill streak could talk all the cast and crew for black klansman on the only one I would also throw in is lady Gaga 'cause I like lady Gaga who also missing Jim say. So I just say that to say that we're talking about diversity in a way that we've never talked about before. And to me, I think the first ages like arguably getting invited to the day. And then the next year is no you throw the dance. Does it make sense? And when you throw the dance, and you get to then you're the one who decided to the prom king and Queen are we are onto dancing NWC P awards are coming up. So that is our dance technically. I agree. I agree. Now this I agree now. This is only thing is, and I have an I will be honest with you. I don't recall. Who they nominated last year? The only thing that I want them to do is don't be Hollywood often times. We have a weird tendency to match the voting of the Oscars does make sense instead of really going. Who are we who is our collective identity in? You mean nominating yoga, you may nominating certain people that it's like, okay, you doing this same way it'd be wars be nominated like Justin Bieber. They thought him him in there. I'll say I'll say. When it comes to the Oscar, and we talked about this before. I think we finally reached a point where just like what you said about spike what he said a couple years ago. I think we finally reached a point where we're not looking to the Oscars for validation, like if we get nominated if we get to attend if we even win that's great. But just because he went in Oscar get nominated for an Oscar, it's still very prestigious still definitely a great accomplishment. That's not the end all be all though. 'cause if those street could talk sweat, then independent spirit awards. So like it also depends on what necessarily you're looking at. Yep. And who you who you deem worthy of what a good film or actress or actor is you have more respect for the Oscars or Golden Globe through critics choice award independent film, independent spirit awards or whatever the different nomination or awards are. And I think because we have such a diverse array of film and TV shows now even more options than before. I don't think it's even possible to. Get an accurate representation of whether or not if them is worthy of that award nowadays. However, you look at the edges, drew my drew a big one. If you look at the overall, though, I like to to not look at just the standalone, oh, the Oscars are with the Oscars voted for granted. When you get what I'm saying. No, totally. And then also too. I think that's a really profound because I think that what you're saying is we now have even our like, our our artistic moral, compass is more diverse. We have more we have more options. So some people can be looking towards the Oscars. Some people can be working looking towards independence spirit award. Some people can be looking towards NWC. Because now there's not arguably like a monopoly on awards, you almost get to you get to pick and choose, and I think it's a beautiful thing. If you're still buzzing after our conversation jumped on mine and mix it up with us on Twitter and Instagram at happy hour underscore TV. So Michael Cohen who was president Forty-five. Former attorney. The what's ACA might I'm getting my dates wrong. What's today's date? Today's the twenty seven February twenty seven twenty nineteen appeared before congress and testified for a little over seven hours, the purpose of his testimony was to a an earth possibly things that he may know about Trump. Trump's candidacy Trump's tax returns and his possible or alleged involvement with Russia specifically Michael Cohen is going to jail for perjury. And I think tax evasion. And so I wanna know did you guys watch. Did you watch any of it? Did you watch any of the highlights do think that we gained anything new? And are we one step closer to potentially not only impeaching, but possibly imprisoning Forty-five going to page? He's not going to jail and he's not getting impeached. He's not going, and I said in order to get to that point. That means a lot of people are going to have to admit that they were on the wrong side of history, and considering the demographic that that would include. I don't see them admitting that they were on the wrong side of history. They just I don't think they feel like they can afford to do that. Especially two years out of an election. People do whatever they gotta do to to make sure he stays intact and we've seen he can literally do anything or the people around him can do whatever. And there are no real consequences. I think we need to accept that. And you know, and I say that to say throughout this whole situation. I keep saying post like lift this with President Obama. They wouldn't even have stood for. But he's not President Obama. For me that compares actually makes me more than a lot of things because we already know. But, but I the case I agree with you. And I'm just gonna say this one thing. And then I'm gonna keep going. I think but I think we need to spell it out. The reason it's not the same because there are different rules for white man than there are for black men. And there's a there's a mediocrity that is normal. There is a serious nece that is normal. There is a lying under oath. There is paying off prostitutes. There is is availing taxes even his bravado in the way that he was testifying that is normal in our country for white men. However, we do not black men do not have that same level of privilege. I will even go as far as the say that's not just normal in this country. That's normal with countries that have any affiliation with north and South America in general. That's normal for Portuguese man that is normal for for British men that is normal for a town in men. That's normal for that whole demographic, not just American men. So why men? Yep. Men nationality. But they, you know, it was assault clips of it. And it was inter -taining. It was interesting. Because now it's like a soap is like a soap opera is like judge Judy or it it it's it's now we're using this to the point where. A lot of people know that it's not going to be taken as seriously as it should. So we just being entertained by a show entertained, though. I think. And this point 'cause I've watched clips highlights and this whole not even ever since he got elected since this. Nominate nominees can talk campaign started with Trump. It's been this entertainment show. We'd had like this really pitting Democrats against Republicans in like, really. Escalated level of partisan politics that especially watching it today, and then reading commentary from different outlets. It's crazy. How bias on both ends it is. And I think the troubling thing that, you know, we talk about fake, news Osborne thing troubling thing with that is, unfortunately, you are turning this into it didn't turn into west from the start and entertainment thing where we. We go so hard and like encourage people to get out there votes, educate themselves, do all these different things. And unfortunately, because of the nature of the way things go in the way things are going and have been for a while people are either completely jaded by everything that's going on. Meaning that they are kinda like Tonelli where you saying nothing's gonna come from this. Because from everything I've seen nothing has happened in nothing will happen. And then you have other people who may actively trying to educate themselves, and I don't think that the sources out there what we are seeing are giving people in accurate representation of what they should be what they should be. It's been a long day. I can't have has it ever been that way, though, true. Because when you think when you think about in out in that's to say, this is one of the most dramatic ten years we've seen hands down in our lifetime. Because we've gotta remember Nixon day getting peace. Watergate was the bullshit. So we've been there as a country. But can we really say thinking back starting from in the first election that I was active in was Bush gore. Can we act can it was you'd in? It was skew with no new taxes. Daddy bush. It was it was skew Desert Storm. I actually completely grew with that. I think that almost from the Genesis of democracy. We've always been a very polarized who party system. However, I would actually slightly disagree with you. I am actually a lot more hopeful than I have been. And I think the reason I'm hopeful is less about politics from a politicians and point and more from a mobilization of the people. I think that good people had become very passive. And I think that unfortunately because forty five is such a tyrant and such a racist. Bigot sexist, homophobic, islamophobic, anti Semite every everything that you can it has pushed good people on the other side of the pendulum to speak up louder. So to me, the wave of female congresswoman that we had and this midterm election to then literally have one of those people 'cause you Cortez Alexandra Qazi Cortes beyond the oversight committee to get to actually ask questions like that movement. And so I think that at the end of the day, it's similar to everything else in this country. Yes, we needed to move faster because because any ISM is in is that we should not support. But I definitely feel like there are more players who are speaking representing everyone in such a way that it is beneficial to all of us. All right guys makes you joined the happy hour conversation by going online hidden up on Twitter or Facebook. At the mill in his junior are Kelly and at Milius. Thank you. Robert Kelly is. Well, he was in jail. He's out on bond robber killing miss. Oh, we're gonna get into that. 'cause I got the details. Robert Kelly was taken into custody is being charged with ten counts of aggregated criminal sexual abuse tapes, emerge one in particular that shows him involve sexual acts with another fourteen year old girl kind of the same scenarios last time peeing on her face on her her Regina on her. Her aim is like it sounds like it was just a part two of what we already saw back in two thousand three two thousand four with that said a woman posted a hundred thousand dollar Bon bail to get our kill the out of Cook County jail her name, and she's a business owner in Chicago, considered her considers herself, a friend of our Kelly Valencia love who owns a restaurant called love on the blue. So. Yeah, people. Tearing our yo page up people's being they've been going in on her pretty much saying you help the pedophile get out of jail, but on another note. Maybe this will start off in a different direction for our Kelly because acacia missed last time R Kelly the reason why he was not convicted is because the family including the girl who was seen on the tape. That was the main source of evidence decided not to testify the family members did not testify will even though the ministration school girl's best friend, a sparkle every a lot of people testify saying, yes, this is the girl. Yes. We do know this happening. Yes. This is we are telling the truth. He was not convicted. So what we think are we sick are killing general. Do we what we want from this? What do we think is going to comp? I think that this incident shows the power of entertainment, and the power of the court of public opinion, both positively and negatively so arguably, it is the public that is somewhat culpable for the fact that he has been out for all of these years and arguably we had evidence that he was in fact, a pedophile and we still supported him. But arguably, it is the same quarter public opinion that has now decided that he has to go, and I think that specifically in this series, reviving our Kelly the fact that they specifically pointed to the fact that the Chicago police department was culpable in helping to cover up his criminal activity. They now have been put on notice, and that's why even his studio now kicked him out. So for them so on and to me, even though I do think that we need to jump online with this woman who. Posted bail also to just stop going to establish -ment just clear on it. I'm not telling you not to jump on Twitter. But I'm telling you to do was bankrupt. Her it's because there's a certain level of the talking. We don't need to do. We just need to mobilize to make sure that we stop her fun. Even the fact that I would even figure out this. You have a Bank loan like I'm sorry. She have a Bank loan conduct the Bank, and basically be like I have an account here. I will remove my account if today, but I think that it's I think it's variable. And I think that as you were telling me about the tape because I have not I've been following the the high level aspects of the story, but the fact that he did it the exact same thing again. I mean, it's it's nothing to be sad. Like, he needs to go to the seven layer of hell like, it's ninety Tate. I think this is still. And got understand. He was doing this. This just to tapes we saw he had a whole library. We people have tested. He has an entire library of things that he was doing from the nineties all the way up until and you know, what though the sad reality is is the what's it called the the psychology of this is so obvious to me. And it makes me so upset it's obvious. Not only it's obvious that he'd tapes them to embarrass them. And that's also why they don't come forward. Does that make sense? Like, it's almost like it just blackmail to watch child when arguably case this woman there are obviously literally consenting adult who don't care that your mother fucking pedophile. They don't care I've seen people post on Facebook saying if this if the evidence in this is real then we gotta stop support in I few, but we saw evidence in two thousand three I know you saw to take because you said you saw. So the you need evidence. Now, you need to see him do it again unit. Oh, you need him to twice then you can believe because the first time you're like well. If I if. It's so it's so upsetting. You know, what I think the problem is? And it's something that you talk about all the time. It's that also to like how we've you are women, and how we view our girls in general. But specifically as black people like it's a downing like, and I completely agree with you. The fact that we were not disgusted at what we saw an arguably, I didn't see it does that make sense. Like, I'm just one of those people because I am one of those like the menu child, I'm not watching it like, it's just it's just that's reprehensible to me. But the fact that we watched it, and we weren't told disgusted that we didn't cancel him speaks to how we you are girls, and that we've you they're disposable or that we somehow think that in any way a child can consent while by the very major of being a child you actually cannot consent. Let alone to that. Listen. So seriously, I think it's coming. I think I think I think. What what the universe, and what Justice has for him will so come for him, so hard it is ridiculous. But I think what we need to do is we need not to celebrate. When it happens because we are still culpable. Oh, we Audrey. They said everything they need to be. Guys, if you haven't done this already makes you go to patriot dot com. Happy hour underscore TV and go ahead and subscribe become aware of our patrons. If you don't know what that is.

RuPaul: What's The Tee with Michelle Visage

Episode 195: Bobby Moynihan & Sydelle Noel

"Me. Hello, michelle. I'm so glad we're back in the new year. We've got we're back together again for while there we weren't together over while there. We were crossed the world from one another. And what's interesting is that, you know, we've known each other for about five hundred years and a lot of the things that we've always wanted to do in our careers are really happening now, it's a real testament to sticking with it stick with it. And hanging in there. I think the biggest challenge oh in show business, but in life, it's just hanging in there for an waiting and allowing and snaking space for the blessing to come to life because most people will say, well, listen, I've been at it for this long and a lot of people give themselves an expiration date. If it doesn't happen by XYZ amount of here. And I think that's of course, the way fate has it the minute. You say I'm outta here is when it would naturally come also. But there's another thing a lot of another thing. A lot of people. Have a way that they feel. It's supposed to look if it doesn't look the exact way that they wanted to then it's like, it's not right. The truth. Is you have to make space and make room for it to be a lot of different things. Yes. I tell the story all the time years ago when I wanted to be the next David Bowie, and then drag sort of happen to me, and I thought yeah. But it's not going to happen like with drag. No, I'm the next David Boeing until I realized oh, no drag is what I'm doing. That's when I felt like ancient. Doors these ancient unlocked doors, sort of creeped up like it opened up the whole my ho career opened up because I was able to open up my mind it chain. It was an inside job. I often talk about that. When people ask me advice where I see somebody. You know, they'll say something and asked me what I think and for me. We spend so hard and so long in so wasted time thinking about what we want out of life. I wanna be the next Madonna. I you want to be the next David Bowie, whatever instead of and then things are being dropped in your lap right in front of you. And you go get outta my way because you're stopping me from being the next Madonna when really and that's what happened with radio. If I didn't capitalize on that moment was dropped. I wouldn't have had seventeen great years of my life in a whole life born into a radio because I never focused on just doing radio always been there. Like, I love it. But it's never been anything. I wanted to focus on do. So a lot of times in life. We focus on doing one thing. And what we're doing is pushing out the stuff that actually could be something when it's dropped her years ago that your big break happens many times in your life, but you have to be aware and awake enough to know. It's happening. Yep. Your big break happens. Many times just to be there present for it to to capitol. I wonder how many times I've pushed it away going. No, no, I want that. Because I want this. I mean, so it's interesting. But speaking about big breaks, I got to see your season of grace and Franky which I haven't seen. He's in five. I watched it when I was in London so good, but one thing, and obviously we talked about it before. And you say how you never ever minute forgot that you're acting with Jane Fonda, which was amazing, and I didn't know Nicole, Richie was in the same with you. But my favorite part that you didn't discuss me of all people. You didn't tell me about working with piglets? Glitz. I mean, yes, Jane Fonda lily Tomlin. That's great. Paperless. Yeah. Did I pick them up? Or did. I touch them. I think you did. I think he came in with one. And then they were following you that please tell me about them. Tell me all about wanna pick so bad. I wanna little cute pig love. It's true. What they say about never work with children or split or or animals, they're very temperamental there, Tim mental. But they also unpredictable and they even though they had a trainer there. In fact, right now on the show, I'm doing now with Michael Patrick king. This last episode we worked with the puppy, and of course, working with the ten year old and I'm in love with her. But she's ten years old and she gets distracted child. Yes. Of course. So she gets tired. And so dare she. So you get so, you know, you have to have a lot of patients with both animals and children. She worked with glitz. I work with piglets. Did you hold him? Did you smell them? Did you kiss? Honestly, michelle. I do not remember Paul. I swear to you never worked with piglets apart from retired air because although I did I did a movie on lady bunny. Well, I did on those a hog net. Flicks about a year ago where we had two hours in the scene. And I don't remember if they belong to my character or somebody else, I think they were they belong to all the piglets, Nicole Richie's. Yes. And they are so cute then lily, and we'll grace and Franky half to then deal with them. Because then they have this sleepover situation and the pigs go into the crates you obviously have not. I'm not remember. But that's the thing is. Alex, our producer right here. He was asking me. How in the hell are you doing all these jobs because right before we on the air? I did some voice over stuff for another show. Yes. And I told him I do it one one time. I do the job. That's in front of me in that moment. It's called compartmentalizing. Yeah. Which can help a lot of people that are stressed out. No, seriously, earnings or depression, my daughter's therapist used that uses that word a lot comp- compartmentalizing because it lets you take like even put it this way. When I was doing the show the play I started worrying about a C, and that was in the second act when really I was about to go on for my over Ning senior so bitch. What are you doing? Right. Take it step by step day by day minute's seen by seeing bit by bit show by show. That's what you're doing. But seeing you in in Frankie. I was proud of you, obviously. 'cause I see how much you've grown CO good. You were. But I know you so well, I could see what you were doing like, I it was just great. And then the pig. And the first thing I wrote down was how dare you not fucking tell me. I then watched delicious. On the plane home watch Jane Fonda in five parts the documentary. Oh, yeah. I love that. That was so good so good. And so unbelievable. I mean that woman has done it all so many lives in one lifetime also being really candid about her daughter, which was an SI. Yeah. Vanessa deem who's the daughter of Roger Vadym director and how she Barbarella. Yes. That's not forget. And and God created woman all these. But candid about how strain that relationship is. And how she admits to be the one who fucked it up because of her non existent relationship with her mother that she didn't realize until she was in late seventies. That her mother did love her. But she realized that she wasn't able to mentally be there. Who's her mother committed suicide? She came when she was away. No, she was too. She was I think she was twelve or somewhere around there. She came home from school. She left for school. Where mother was away in a in a home. Right. That's right. Right. That's what it was. Her mother was in a sanitarium somehow she was able to come home for that day because the mother faked something and she was able to come home for that day. She went up to her room and killed herself. And her the kids were had come home school and found out that through I think through a movie magazine, they said, they mother died, someway, but then the movie magazine, she read that's she found out.

So I was in London for the holidays, and we have to discuss the Hollis lay spectacular stunt double situation. My. I haven't seen you in a long. But we you texted me, and you said have you seen the holiday special yet? I said no because it had aired. And you said Michelle when you. What they have done are going to slap your month. See happen is Michelle I did our part. And then we got out of our clothes does. She wear what you were wearing that was your outfit. What wasn't my two of them because I think she's a different size in. Okay. And then I gave my outfit to stunt to do the thing until I was you left. I've stayed around to why jewelry my hair stuff. Yes. Yeah. So I watch and watch in life when they stunt. Oh my God. So when I finally saw it, I I don't know. I was here world of wonder somewhere. People could hear me screaming. Yeah. How I thought it was so funny at thought rose Nyland, that's what it was. Yeah. So this is where the goal is. Connect happens with our younger audience, and let me try to explain there was a lot. I know we do a lot. But there was a lot of people especially on my Instagram or Twitter feed, and yours, you just don't look saying nice. Try. We obviously know they were stunt doubles. Okay. Da amok to call names. But at the end of the day, duh. The reason we did it that way. You guys was not to pull any wool over your eyes. We didn't think that we were fooling you. We did it as blatantly possible as we could apart from showing their faces with a mustache on them. I'm sorry. But you know, I'm fifty eight years old. Yes. That you really think I would do. I mean, first of all see Michelle, you even give those those people are really dumb. Really don't don't even give them. I have. No. But they're lane really dumb kids. I mean, think of the dumbest person, and you also understand is that a lot of these kids. They just want to talk. They want to have a conversation. But guys, we didn't think we were fooling you. It was meant to be that way. And it was brilliant. It was the campus thing I have seen Hampton thing ever scout camp. Oh, my civil so ridiculous. Because for people who haven't seen it. We that fair. Nobody want we do this Michelle and I in the Christmas special called Holly. Sleigh or something. I don't know what it's holiday spectacular. Okay. We shell lip sync asong together. And we use body doubles to do all of these flips. And. All the stuff, we do all these flips. I lift her up over my head one point the thing that that girl did the stunt. Double did was she does a flip and lands on her butt and flips over how did she not crack her back was that jump suing? No, it's crazy. But anyway, what that's what we're talking you. As some people thought, you think you're trying to what I challenge those people who think they're the amateur sleuths trying to figure out what's going on with the Muller investigation. There are so many issues at hand that really need your thinks. Thinks things like climate change is probably going to kill every single person on this planet. But of course, our president doesn't think it's real and pulls out of the climate accord's. Yeah. And then the fucking Russians have taken over our government. But you wanna come at us before an obvious gag with stunt doubles greet. It's like it's ridiculous. Get a fucking life. Just want to put that out there. Idi s nobody tried for a minute to pull the wool over your eyes. Ooh, we've been found out. We've been busted guy. She did get it live for it. And they totally got it. And it was a rose Nyland nod. It's a rose Nyland on golden girls at one point they have a dance contest. And rote Rosen island says move out of the way kids, I have something to do. She does this flip thing where it's obviously a ball. Yeah. Like a man. Funny. Yes, hilarious. Then when I was over there the LA fires happened. How were you with all that? Well. I was working and couldn't speak because all the smoke was in. Yeah. In my throat, and everything I think we were working down in Long Beach on location, and I had a hard time even long. Yeah. Yeah. Had a hard time talking and all that stuff was hard. It was in my backyard Yano literally so David called my husband called I was about to go on stage. It might have been my opening night or the next day. Why would you do that? 'cause I'm gonna tell you why he said, I don't mean to do this to you video. He said, what do you want me to save apart from the dogs and him and my daughter, so I said, obviously might wedding ring 'cause I don't wear it. And do you know what I set next what? Glasses collection like last which they're about five hundred pairs glasses. He literally said fuck you hung up the phone that I can go. I'm not kidding kidding. I have them all boxed up. So he had to pack up the car had everything ready to go and they called off the evacuation my neighborhood because it blew down towards Malibu, but it was literally the last year was closed. This year was in my backyard. Saw the news reports that oh my God. Michelle's gals. Yeah. It was very very close, and my heart, obviously, our hearts, go out to the people that were affected. But it was it's really crazy. When obviously you can't do anything when you're there. But then I'm overseas. And I couldn't do a thing. Except check in every ten minutes going. What? Now, what now really scary very scary. And it seems to happen the same time every year. Yeah. Yeah. Which is like November, you know in mother nature in a joke. No, natural, you know. You know, it's not to be played with. That's for sure. Yeah. I have just two words on my list and it says Christie Brinkley. I listen, I do what I have to do to look good facials. My dental work. Eyebrow tinting? I lash done Chander. Why not do it? Hey. Christie Brinkley has deal with the devil. Well, okay. No. She has been touched by an angel. Also flock of angels a flock of age and she's sixty three. I think is she she the older. Okay, sixty. She's she's been snatched as she. Yes. I know you show. Yes. Oh, yes. Well, I wanna know who snatched her. Yeah. Well, first of all what you need to know about snatches, and you know, this sixty five year, right? It would you know, this is that it if any house renovation that the house has have a good foundation Christie Brinkley has a good foundation. And then it depends on your contractor a lot of metaphors here. If you have someone working on your house. That is a good construction person. I'm not a reputable. Okay, lisin. Yes. Then you have good results. Right. But some people if you realty Angie's list, if you renovate a house so to speak. That the house foundation is very good. Then your results won't be good either trail. So she has the foundation got the foundation architects. Several architects team of architects what Mike Brady had to make the power puff puff house. Well, she looks financially. Does she looks greater than anybody? I've ever seen honestly at sixty five. Listen, Jane, Fonda is eighty she looks amazing. And she eighty one eighty five eighty eighty and she says documentary, I've had plastic surgery. I don't want people to think that I haven't. And she looks amazing Christie Brinkley looks on Boli -able, and I want which she's having. That's all I can say I put it on there because I saw her and I said what is this bitch drinking? I mean, obviously, no she's been touched. When you see someone in person, though, you get you get to see the it moving. Yes. And you go, okay. I backed and there's no face tune in things like that. Right. But still even with it moving. She looks fan. I remember when I've only spinner presence once and this is probably twenty years ago. And I remember seeing her and going oh seeing her nose and going. Oh now, I see that's a nose job. I didn't in pictures. It doesn't read that's one. I didn't know that. When you see her in person, go. Oh, okay. That's I see. Yeah. And again, we're all for it. This is not shaming ship. She looks unreal. But I started doing something when I was over there. You might see me post about it. And when when you come over for drag race UK, I'm going to have her come to you because it's unreal. Real. But I feel like I see a difference on my neck and my jaw line. It's called the collagen wave, and I don't know anybody who does it here. The one of my co stars was talking. So what happens this doctor that created it in the UK, it's a British doctor? He's like a mad. Scientist didn't really care. It doesn't really care about patent it and making money off of it.

And there's always what a panta wiz. It's camp and our British listeners will help us with the camp retelling of traditional story. Right. And there's always. Pillow panta short for pantomime. But that doesn't explain because for us pantomime is words. Yeah. So it's a camp over the top reduction of Fenton. No, no, no. I got it. He it's just it's just a, and it's a one time only it's usually Christmas time, and it will run to three shows a day for like five weeks and that London played him as a top of the line Julian Clary on French this year. It was unbelievable the money. They put into it real. It's sold out every show the costuming is Vegas quality on believable. So fun and every joke sexual, but it's offer kids for little kids. Every joke goes over their heads. It's brilliant and Julian Clary was oh good. Help me again who that is seen the name. Yes, he's British actor who's been around for a long time openly, gay one big brother. He does a lot of one men shows. He's just absolutely brilliant hero before his time. Well, I just I just.

And we bought another suitcase in London, okay? On the opposite. End of the spectrum is another suitcase for my my purchases at prime arc where everything is five pounds and under and we're very different people. But that's okay. I walk. I walk on new bond street and stuff. Oh. But I. Straight. So I like a high street, they call it. Yeah. Well, you know, this is the thing is that we would ship things like I bought hats at child of the and ahead though, shipped over. I can't believe that I've never gone to a child of the AGA. Well, the thing is we bought the suitcases because there's this myth or maybe it's true that when you go for the tax rebate at the airport to have it with you you have to have it. What do you do that? They can see. But of course, they never checked the suitcases whether I have the receipts, and I got you actually did the tax return. Yeah. You get money. Oh, yeah. Wait, hold up. Hold up. I never do it. Because everybody told me I have to have the shit with me. And how can I have it with me when I have to check it in? Exactly.

And it's like, oh, this is life. To cook dinner. I have to write do these things drive here and do that. So it's all very new to me. But I love that city so much I those in way with I've been doing Asia in the Queen for four months now. And it's a learning some days, it's some days three pages some days I've had as much as maybe eight pages. What do you do because I know your memory great? What do you do? Well, I do the old fashioned way where it's repetition. I will write it down. There's that do use use line. Learn learner it helps so everything for me. And I told you this before that muscle of memorizing gets stronger, the more you do. So sometimes I think tomorrow, I have a light day. I have. I think five pages done. It's I former weeks to go like forever. It has been forever. And we've been working. Every we work five days a week, and we doing ten episodes. It's a lot, and then, you know, a single scene they shoot a wide shot. They should my single her single. And then some close ups they go closer. It's it's so intense, and we shoot on the same sound stage that a stars born with Judy was filmed on private Benjamin was filmed on that psalm stage. Oh my gosh. Gee, carnal desire was filmed on that sound stage bell with with Betty Davis. So many movies, and I could feel that energy in that room in that semi. She is she's best Judy. Yeah. Yeah. I that. It's amazing. And there is a star is born Jim ever her name. Yeah. It was Janet gainer and Fredric March. I think Frederick March. Yeah. Yeah. That was thirty thirty. Yeah. And then then Judy did and Barbara, Barbara and then. Yeah. But I love the Barbara was panned. By a lot of people. And I liked that you like I'm not a big fan of see there's a lot of people that don't love it. Yeah. I think the film quality. I love Barbara everything. She does. But the film quality is it doesn't look pretty me. And then I just worked with director who directed Barbara in guilt trip and Fletcher us on on. Yeah. On AJ who most most of them are directed by Michael Patrick king. But we've had some guests like Bob cat Gulf. Wait fun. Yeah. He's been doing a lot of directing. Yeah. And but I don't know what my life is going to be like after it. It's a weird. It's so intense, and it's with the exact same people every day of open myself up this kid, I work with ten. She used come please come to set. So you could see you go. Oh my God. That is Madonna at ten away. She looks exactly like Madonna at ten now. I gotta love her. You've got to come over. I'd love to on here. Tomorrow tomorrow. I'm working I'm in in dragged. Speaking of Judy. I'm not giving anything I'm sort of dressed as Judy tomorrow. It's all weird. This full circle Judy moment. It is funny. And that this land at the same time that are Judy episode s and that we Judy shot in the sound stating. Yeah. Yeah. I'm very excited to see AJ in the Queen have you you've come to you've come to Warner Brothers before production, though, I have come pre production when you were writing. Yes. So I have not seen the sad. I've not seen anything except. Well this week I'm working with Mary Kay place. Oh my God. Oh my God. Yes. And that was exciting for you. Yeah. And this this actor John Rubinstein, I grew up watching in everything he has probably he's the original Pippin. He wanted Tony. He wanted Tony for noth- for for something else kinda fun calm, but he originated the role in Pippin. And I'm about five years ago. I went to an audition. Oh, sure. Yeah. Yeah. Curly hair. Yes in yes. Maybe actually longer maybe about eight years ago into an audition. And he was in the room waiting elected by Bob Fosse twice. Oh my God. No, no, Bob Fosse. And then Mike Nichols. He did to Mike Nichols. Thing's. Amazing, and I did fools. Yeah. Mike Nichols YoM believable. But anyway, my hope is that I don't know. This whole thing. My life changed you. It has is what have you learned about yourself that it's still it's never too late to open up my heart because for years. It was important if as a kid to protect my heart and too close to put a wall around. Well, this role has called on me to open up and to. To reveal myself, and I do it in this thing, I cry and scream and fight. And. Last week. I have to love interest in this. What did you do your sex scene? I have go on. Yes. And then I'm how was that for you? It was it was nurse. Sure. One way. Yeah. Yeah. For you. Was it weird was AOL's? It's weird. One of the guys, you know, he's married as a family and everything he's. It's it's very weird. He's lovely lovely. But it's, but you know, when you kiss someone you have there's a dialogue is a consciousness between only you to know where your tongue went certain dance. Yes. That only you to know about right? And it's just it's I without giving away. It's a very interesting. And he and I we we've kissed off. What do you do you? Do you put mince your mouth, you know? Yeah. Oh, yeah. Because I'd be so conscious of absolutely brushing Mant. I have a water pick. And I go. Listen to rain and all that stuff, and he's so self conscious of that. And then when I kissed him, I tasted he's done the exact same. Good. 'cause I watch company and you'll understand this. I think of 'cause now at the roles are reversed we've talked about it and bobby's a girl, and I think about Rosalie the actress who plays Bobby, so brilliant, and there's the one scene with gorgeous guy who plays the pilot, and he's under the covers for a long time simulating stuff. And I think I'd be so self conscious because you're in you're in this dress, your tights women have issues there's things going on monthly sure. And I'd be the whole time going. Oh, my God making sure purview whatever it is not to fix the eight him. But we as humans have those sense in those thought, so I thought when every time I watch a sex scene or kissing. I always think if that person brush their teeth admits or what if you know, this is a very real thing. The other guy I had this thing with is. He's he's gay the other love interest. Yes. And we have a liaison in the back of his Hummer familiar. And and you know, it's a little nervous at first. But then immediately like, oh, yeah. I got it. Yeah. Because the other guy the straight guy he even rehearsal just in the office. He supposed to come over and kiss me. And he used his tongue in rehearsal. It was just me him and mpc as you know, that were, you know, the time what's coming. No. I didn't know it was his way of saying. Hey, you know, what I'm cool, and I'm going to do this. I'm not going to not weird about not supposed to use your tongue on TV. Really? I don't know. That's what I always heard. Novellas? That's for sure. I'll be don't. Oh, yeah. Well, we're using tongue on AJ in the Queen Mike I s and then I've seen with him the other. The straight actor. I've seen him. We have another big love scene where we do the Tango. He's he I don't want to give much dance. Yeah. We and did you have to have practice for the Tango, we're going to. We haven't shot their ten episodes. And this week. We are working on episode eight you're getting close very close. What are you gonna do? Are you gonna have time off after? Time off what does that mean?

We've former weeks laugh, I think we finished on March fifth or six. And we've been doing it. It's nonce, I know and it's hard. It's hard thing. You've ever done is the hard thing most challenging ever and the most rewarding thing I've ever right because there have been scenes, oh my God. I had this one scene where I have to tell the kid how valuable she is just as she is. And this is outdoors in Griffith park. And there's a whole camera crew, and I've been working with this Atkin coach a lot which one not Yvonna, no Joan Rosenfels. How come Joan is a friend of mpc as they've worked together for over thirty years, and she comes out here, and she's in New York, but she comes out here to every two weeks. Anyway, I do the scene and. I just become overwhelmed because I've opened myself up. So the worst that come out of my mouth, actually means something to me. And I it happens from net time and again in a scene, and I've become addicted to that feeling of can I get there. Can I get to that place? What can I do to get to that place? I'm really in it, right? And I'm in this field. And I just by my voice chokes up saying to your valuable on love you. And I and I know that there's a camera in my face, and I, but it still happy. And it's like what the fuck was. It's crazy. And I don't other seem to same thing where I'm telling my friend on the phone that the kid something that the kid didn't I start crying? I just get emotional like, oh, more, please. I'm not dead. Oh god. I never thought you where to begin with that question. My own Mortell on the inside, you know, sometimes you become he feel like you become a robot in way, you know, especially when you were checked yourself self-preservation, you know, so yeah, I don't know what my life is going to be like in four weeks.

And we'll before I didn't have parents. And then I shaved it for Black Panther. So now, it was like in a growing back process. And I was like now I had to worry about extensions and people knowing how to put in sentencing, and then matching my texter it was a lot of things. But like it happens a lot and not just me my friends. My my friends who are African American. They deal with a lot. I mean, even Gabrielle union, she she has in her book billing with that going on and knowing not knowing how to do with makeup in her hair contextual. It's it's known in the business young. We even write about it on our on season to blow. It's even in the episode. And I was like thank you so much for right in that in because it's such a big deal really happen. Now, how freeing was it for you, just as a woman not person of color a woman to shave your head? There's many times I just wanna do that. And be beautiful shit. Ton of may. I thought I was gonna cry at first, but there was like this whole NDA. 'cause I was I wanted to film the whole process taking my here. And we as women were like, that's what we hold on. It's like our safety net. And so they did allow me to film it. So the whole time they were doing out. But then when I was done I was like literally feeling my scalp, and I was like it happened. I was like I I didn't have the wake up to do my hair. I didn't have anything, and it was just like getting up taking a shower and letting the water hit my head. It was like, yes. And I'm not going to like when I was in Atlanta shooting. I've got hit on more with the ball head than when I say, yes, I go out with my bald head, and I'll be at the gas station pumping my rent, a car, and then all of a sudden guys hitting on me. And I'm like if somebody playing joke. It is. I don't know. That's so weird. I think that as women we just think, you know, men love here, we want here or or women who later we're heads that exact here is not attractive either Halle Berry out there. They tell us short hairs jock. Give hairs what makes a woman be women that we I think the men who approach you're thinking, oh, I don't have to worry about her here because you know, there is the old wives tale. It's just a Arben. Known is known fact, if you're dealing with the woman who is we've or some hair extensions something that you can't touch it, especially. Yeah. That whole big thing here. If women doesn't have it it might attract more men to go. I think he really could grab that. Hey, yes. Change your hair everything back. You might be a part of that might be or to see confident woman with no hair. That's true. Because I mean, we see women were here all the time when you see a woman out here, so different look different animal, and they're like little bits that she filmed it in Atlanta at the Tyler Perry studios or something. Yeah. I think which used to be Turner Broadcasting. Yes. I think he owns it. Now like it wasn't his before. But now he owns. How long ago right now for people who know we take this thing. Well in advance this is this is a beginning of June or something into. Whenever. Judy. One. When did you know you had the part for black pants? Okay. So we filmed last year from January fourth to like middle of may that was twenty seventeen twenty seven I found out thanks around thanksgiving. 'cause I remember my mom came thanksgiving here. Thanksgiving to twenty sixteen. What we got a whole year. Yes. No, no. It was just. Yeah. I'm a month started shooting my. Yeah. I dish in d-. I wanna say it was like because I started shooting glow around like September. And addition I think September for Black Panther as well, I didn't have the callback until like a week before thanksgiving because they flew me out. They flew me out because they knew that they wanted me already just made on my pre read and everything, but they didn't know if I could handle the physical part. So they flew me out to meet Ryan Kugler, and he would all of the. Producers Nate Parker and everything and I had to literally do like a physical stunt audition run in them and to see if I can handle the physical stuff because all the doors opposed to be stunt women. I'm the only one that's not the sides end the other girl flow, and then you have deny who's the lead. But yeah, the rest of the girls are stunt girls. And those girls shave their head shaved head it. So do you always maintain a strong body in in? Yeah. Preparation for your she'd been doing glow, right? Yeah. I was doing glow, but my background used to run track track. So I I literally I haven't stopped working out. I work at like if I don't work out like today. I didn't work out. I'm going crazy. Like, I. Like, I always work out. But yeah. And then when I did it when I did this, physical style addition. I literally just showed them like after I did the routine I showed him everything I did on glow. So I did move. And then I box as well. So I- I shadow box on ended a couple of flips for them. And and then next, you know, by the time, they flew home. I off the playing them. My man do like you got it. Oh my God. So at this even the acting game for a long time. I wanna know if it may be too soon for you to answer this question. But I wonder what's shifted in your consciousness in your emotion. What shifted in your life for this abundance to happen? All of a sudden, truly I think I always had that mind frame where I knew where I want to go, and I knew I wasn't going to quit. But truthfully, what shifted for me is my representation because it's not that. I mean, there's a lot of good actors out there a lot of work. Exactly. And it's not it's not because it's not because they're not good. They're good because they don't have the good representations. Your representation has to be good as well. Because your reps. Not good. How are you going to get in those doors? So it wasn't until literally I booked this film. And the casting directors were like who are your reps? And they were like, no, you can't meet with them. Really? Yeah. They literally like they literally semi list. I would never get. And Jennifer, Jennifer, chadwell, Monica. They literally send me a list of agencies and managers that you want to be they like don't get crazy who you think will be ideal for you. I did. And some of my list was on their list, and they set me up with meetings with agents and managers and within a week of me-meeting like maybe eight people I I had my team and I'm still with him, and he hooked me up with another management. And it wasn't until I got with him Tyler Allen that I literally was like odd. I went from ob- dishing, maybe once a month. Maybe once the types of mind two three three sometimes four times a week. Wow. So I didn't even have time to be complaining. I didn't get this one on dishing because I already working on the next. So it wasn't. It was literally my representation that switched because I knew what it was to be like literally auditioning on time. Because if you put in the odds if you're dishing once and twice a minor odds netted, yeah. Looking a roll and then dishes in three times. A week. Did he get real auditioning that nerve exactly we're talking to? I keep on side a lot of people say side, but sit. You know, well store of Black Panther and a glow. And I you talking about you want to do physical films where you are a superhero. And so I don't want to jinx anything. But do you have your eye on certain things like to reboot or looking at you and thinking, you know, obviously a lot of the blaxploitation films of the early seventies. Pam films could be rebooted in a way that it does. It's not so sexist the way they were back then and she she became a superstar with them. But I could see you doing foxy Brown or riding or Sheba baby. All of those things may have you seen those young? Said no reason why I've seen those movies because when I dish in for glow, my character, cherry bang. They said think of her as Pam Grier foxy Brown. So literally before dishes, I was watching all these exports. So that's why I know those movies. Yeah. Yeah. And they could be done in a sort of marvel universe. Kind of say Stein. Rich all the stuff they're doing. But. Yeah. No. I thought thought of all the stuff even like like Conan with race jail. Reece jones. They could do a spin off of that character. That's great great. So I have the right at myself. Again, like with the makeup people, and they're in there and saying how much time do we have? Okota zero. Okay. All right. All right. Well, we have had such genius time. Talking to you. I think I think everything is lining up for you to do everything. You wanna do? I really I can feel that. I'm glad I to get to meet you before all that. So you can still you see watching me adjust. My I got more synthetic wig right now seeing all this the safety public is so tight I gotta loosened a little bit about that was where my mind when I was look, and then I was completely bald. So it was like weird and how long for your hair to grow back. I mean, it's still growing back here. But I have like a full kaput my hair in a ponytail and oh, right. And it's been a year. Now, it's been a year last may was my last shape. We'll continue to success. I see a great future for you. Do. Thank you. Thank you so much. We're gonna take a break. We'll be right back after this.

Yeah. Chester. I did go to the bronxville prom though. Yeah. And what was the theme? What was the song? Oh, save the best for last money seamless money. Yes. The subject the subject was money. Did you remember what the song was? So do they do that anymore? I don't I don't I think ours. Weirdly enough was that really sad boys to men song. Yeah. Oh, that's crazy. Yeah. That wasn't a funeral. Maybe it was you know, there's a picture floating around at the problem. It was not my actually it was that was from nineteen eighty three. I would have had I finished high school. I would've finished in seventy eight. But I went the prompter you see on the internet. That's from nineteen eighty three you to go. She asked me to go. And it was at my school. It was at the school that I was going to or one of the schools that I went to I did you have a prom date bomber going hand. I did I had I had a couple of prom dates. I had a lot of line hor. No, I was just a nice guy. Manage a couple. John Hughes movie where I was just I think nice guy that like he's not going to try and do anything weird. He's just gonna come dance and hang out and try and make my friends left. Wait a minute had the same problem with two people. I went to like difference in my area. It was like Westchester intuitions or I lived in east Chester, which is in Westchester takahoti, bronxville scarsdale, they're all very close to each other. You could walk to a different high school five different high schools in twenty. Yes money. Exactly. So like I had an did feeder when I was a kid. So I went to the girls who were in taco do you wanna come to my prom? And I was like sure, I know all your buddies. Doesn't it? Renting tuxes I did unlimited tux. I'd probably wearing the same suit jacket of war today. Tuck a hose near your town, yet people are sale people think mount Vernon nigga we make Takahiko up. It's not made on Nado. No fantastic. A nice guy. And you went to all these different prompting Theus. Yes. And these are all theater girls a lot. Yeah. I had a girlfriend that I went girl named Amanda, who's absolutely wonderful. And we that was like my main prom like my high school, prom girl. Amanda, I went to another prominent tug o with an ex girlfriend who then like, I think we started dating and. I went to prom a year before like when I wasn't a senior yet with a very nice, girl, lesbian, girl. Oh. That's lovely vast. Now. Of course, they all everybody knows you from Saturday Night Live you made the decision to leave after it was at ten or eleven years. On nine years nine years. You were there. Why did you leave? It's hard. It's really hard. I was there nine years. And it was it was either. I also I just gotten married. I just had a baby a ten month old. Do you know who the father is? We're still checking. Okay. But I will I will. Yeah. It was just getting my life's dream was to be on that show. It happened after nine years of additional for the same show. You're you're down every week you start to go. Maybe I've done everything. But then the second I left I had ten million new ideas. Right. It was either leave now and enjoy the experience and move on and start a family and make your family the priority. Sure or stay alive with Keenan for the rest of your life. On very stoned. Right. With the series me myself in I didn't go very far did not know. To be the one to tell it was canceled. All bad news, you delivered by real. You are not making your money in the right door to door. Exactly. Ten grand? To what happens. Now, do you? Are you are you developing things yourself? Yeah. I'm on commission this season. Yeah. It's the first time in my. Very lucky and long working career that I can now pick and choose because I have a family. I'm in thirteen cartoons. I'm doing a mation. I'm really enjoying that gives me a lot of time to raise my daughter in the first year, and then yeah. Kimmy schmidt. I'm it's so funny. Everyone's like, I don't look on Twitter that much. But if I do someone will be like, I missed Bobby Moynihan is he'll K God, I'm working harder. Really hong. Just because you're not on Saturday Night Live every week people to figure dead and your gone alone in a room somewhere crying. Yes. Did you a picture of loan, which is which happens? But I mean, once you're on live, you are in the good graces of Lauren who may produce lots of movies and things and now it's it's it's to getting my life back a little bit. And now the. Your idea. Well goes pretty dry after nine years of every week. Try to write what you want to be the greatest SNL thing in history because you're of the show so responsible for your on skits. Yeah. I mean, gab, right. Every view saw me talking a lot. It was probably because I wrote it or begged somebody about the drag race get did you write that one? I think I helped jokes. No that was James Anderson, and these guys, but I was just so happy to be involved in it because we were all big drag race fans right on my last episode. I pitched it a couple of times. But I try really tried to do it. My last. Just we couldn't figure out I pitched repulsed drag race junior. Yeah. Ooh. That's a good idea. With kids scheduled Oculus. And so the one that we're talking about with Chris Chris pine, it was we were a bunch of mechanics kind of talking about we will we watch on TV. And no one really wanted to admit that they watch drag race guys. Did they knew every all the all the trinity the tuck, you mention twenty is why why did you an I love to talk. Why do you think it was her who got name checked? I wonder if James was just a fan, also trinity. The tuck Taylor's funny. Other Asian wise. Pretty amazing. It's just very funny. I wonder if that had something to do with it also. But yet still to this day, I feel awful for trinity because I sent in that video for the finale, and I was so excited. I'm a huge fan of the show. We all around the TV drag race tonight, and I felt really bad because it was like a video from. Black China and then Katy Perry. And then I think in Trinity's is she thought she was getting a Chris pine video. Share? Now, she's little old moynahan. Okay. Well, yes. Thank you. Very, very polite. I understand I would have wanted Chris by two. Great job. It was a blast funny. Nine years on that drill. I have one regret with not doing the death drop at the end. Get. Could I physically physically afraid what you should be? It's very dangerous. I looked it up. I did the research. Look them up. To course. I practice. Yeah. It's really are very hard. It's really hard live TV. You got one chance. It's that was the most nervous. And literally the only thing I practice for. Oh, no my last four years also. No can do it. They've old some of them gotten very hurt. You know? A and. Late stage broke we kept going. Well, I don't know. She couldn't like one of those ones that you make fun of on Sunday live with that's making would have been. Yeah. I was like a good bit.

That's how you send it and salutations fun. It's. Welcome to the show. Hi, miss money. Any? Hi, tony. Our you right during sandy no Seattle really for the real. Yes. One of our great friends. It was a good time so much snow. I got almost stuck in a snowstorm. It is being crazy right now in LA, we're on the tangent. But I mean it was snowing in Malibu the Los Angeles. That's insane. Everything went upside down inside out. Everyone went crazy bizarre. Anyway. Okay. So on this evening episode of Tony the movie guy. Why do we have such a weird like voice right now? Presenter kids. Presenting a kids show. I love Sheldon. He's my hero. Okay. So we're going to recap the two thousand nineteen Academy Awards. Yes. We'll go through the major categories. We'll talk about kind of what we what we liked anything. We didn't like all the controversy surrounding these Academy Awards. We'll just kind of go through it because you have to you have to recap the Oscars. Honestly, I'm kind of excited this year. I remember last year you, and I am with both kind of it was. Down in the dumps. It was too political. And we kind of didn't like it. Well, as to this year, as I said, the Oscars every year is like the summation of all of the films the acting all of the performances for that year. And it really is a great celebration. And it's the best way. The celebrate you'll love film. And I remember I mean, I've been watching the Oscars since I was a kid and always being an vent for me with my family. And I remember the good old days for Billy crystal hosting. You know, even she Jackman amazing host, and you know, the days of Bob Hope even before that because I'm old, and it's Wayne in the is it really hasn't. I find myself getting less and less excited almost to the point that this year. I was like, you know, what maybe I'm this the right? I didn't. And you're right. Lost years would just they will just kind of surreal net so long, and they just I don't know. You don't see the same. Same enjoyment that you used to? 'cause you're right. Everyone is trying to kind of sell their agenda. It just gets a bit strange turned from a beautiful celebration of the movies and film into something else. So I mean that stopped by discussing that because before the Oscars even Ed it was so shrouded in controversy, which is why I was so turned out totally host. Right. So it started with well. I started with Kevin Hart getting the gig as the host of the Oscars, which by the way, it used to be one of the most coveted gigs. Yeah. Totally and then some tweets or something jokey made years ago brought out in the open on social media. And there was a big controversy. So then they let him go or he stepped down something like, you know, and then for weeks and weeks, it was like who is going to host the Oscars and Ellen Degeneres had him on her show and try to get him to you know. Come back. And he was like he just wouldn't he do it? I think he dodged a bullet. I'm lucky I agree. And then they ended up this is the first Oscars in like, you know, thirty forty fifty years that has been hostess, and honestly, I kinda liked it. Yeah. We'll we'll talk about that. I mean, cut down thirty minutes and made it go brisker. And I put it this way. I didn't miss. I didn't know. I did miss those cool intros that they do. Sometimes again, those have been hit and miss in the years in the days of Billy crystal. They would do those hole like opening montages what Hugh Jackman with the whole song dance phone, right? Yeah. I missed that tiny thing. But you're right. It was funny after all that hoopla kind of didn't really matter with you. So that was that with the host. And then I don't know what was going on with the kademi itself. You know, it's like whoever was controlling this the the people responsible just like on the case. Shen, you know. So maybe all these other details tummy, well, there was this popular award. They kind of everyone nuts over that was like this stupid. So then, you know, the the the academy like retracted that then there were the four categories that they said that right? We're going to be awarded live on the presentation which included cinematography. Makeup costume design, you know, sound editing just insanely popular categories that make or break movies. And of course, everyone went ape shit over that won the academy was like, oops, actually, we aren't going to do it. So there was all this stuff going on, you know. And then you're right, then you've got politics 'cause you know, obviously, Trump is the president whether you like he is, and you know, Hollywood just cannot stand that. So, you know, some of my favorite comedians like I used to watch Jimmy Kimmel all the time, you know, and his off to show off to the Oscars. I love it and one me neither 'cause Jimmy Kimmel. He's just like a bench for politics now early. Does back Trump. I'm not even pro-trump, by the way. It's just. Phoolan? But it's like dude just go back to being what you which is funny and do what you do best. So you're right. It's all shrouded in political drama and all this controversial drama. It's not enough where it was all about we did not give enough awards to African Americans. Not enough black people Oscars not enough. Wait a minute is not enough women gossipers. You know, look, I love everyone. The movie will by the way this year African Americans killed laid they killed him. And it was well deserved. And so did, you know a lot of amazing women and Asia. Yeah. Exactly. So it was definitely very political. Anyway, really needs to go back to basics, which is, you know, mankind. Loves movies movies is something I think all of us, you know, good bad ugly enjoy films. That's just go back to celebrating and loving movie. Agreed. So yeah, there was only crystal where I we want. We'll see. They actually did bring him back some years ago, and it didn't. Because he's done it like fifteen times. It does see need kind of new fresh yank. I don't know they need to work it out. And again, as you said, I don't even know that we are totally beholden to having to have a host. We're not. But anyway, so this year's Oscars because there was no host. It was like a brisk three hours motion still quite long. But you did notice the pace it was 'basta. And I liked what they did they had just all kinds of actors and actresses musicians famous sports people even politicians all come up and present different segments of the show, and they had some good comedy sprinkled within that as if they were hosts, you know, exactly when they brought up Tina Fey. And so did you like that a lot of people love that intro? It was Maya Rudolph Tina Fey and Amy Poehler say kind of almost made people think, oh, why didn't they just make them? I thought they were. Okay. And I love those ladies, but I didn't think there were wonderful. So the first few minutes, I was like, oh, this is folding flat for me. And then they kind of ended strong. So it was I was in the middle people like them, you know. And actually, they kind of did make a few political jabs whatever I thought they did find I mean, I like them. So let's go, right. Into kind of that like the highlights the low light of the different segments. Before we go into the actual categories. I definitely want to discuss those the winners losers. What you think were like snobs and someone we'll definitely discuss that for me. Yeah. I enjoyed them. And you know, you had it was interesting Parrope's. There was a congressman in the you had Tom Morello from rage against the machine who at one of the films, which he actually did a good job. But I I was kinda random I really like Shalit's they're on. And who she with who will she would just forgotten. It was someone way toll of than overly. I mean, there was so many Parrope's it really it worked really well for me. And I really Melissa McCarthy in where I was going to go to that. Because that was like one of my favorites. But then you Jason momoa with Helen Mirren. Yes. The highlights for me was waning Garth reunion. Oh. Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, I thought you can spew spewing this. I thought they were fantastic at made me just longing. For Wayne's world three. I'm so into nostalgia sucker for that. I was immediately. I tend to my friends. I'm like, I have to rewatch rain Wayne's. All right now, they did a great job. They totally could pull off a third. Really nice gnawed, obviously right to Queen who smiled and knowledge the ones that you know, the in the front row, they wore and Mayes was in the film as not to that song Baheen rhapsody with it's true. You know, this when Wayne's world came out but human rhapsody got like a rebirth. Yeah. It was straight to number one in the charts in the in UK and US. Found a whole new generation of fans that song just from that movie. I won't lie that what popularized the song for me. And I knew Queen before that be all kind of cap off mine any other do you remember safe ashore? But I absolutely loved them. And then yes, it was Melissa McCarthy and then a Brian Tyree. Henry is the other actor who came on stage and just killed it with such dead pan conviction in the because they were presenting custom designed and they will wearing I didn't even realize this. They will wearing a conglomeration of every costume from every movie. No, they were. That's what they were wearing. That's bunnies on her dress, which is from the favorite was wearing Mary Poppins. And they had they had something for Mary Queen of Scott get that. Neither did I just thought they were wearing these. Absolutely outrageous. But what was so perfect? I think what really sold. It was Melissa McCarthy who God bless her. I love who was also Oscar nominated for a very serious role. Right evening was deadpan the entire time. And she was highlighting how costume design is very subtle. You know, the little nuances that make a difference while they just had. She said it was hours of preparation getting those costumes on that. I absolutely love like I was I was dying with that. And then of the performances the musical performances that went memorable what the one that everyone is talking about which we'll talk about more as well. In the categories was Bradley Cooper and lady Gaga that heat on stage sexual chemistry, and obviously they're making so much more out of it than there is such a big deal out. Honestly, they what I get. I know everyone wants them to have like this crazy secret love affair, which is really not very nice toward his wife. But he's not married, by the way. No, he's. Mary. He's kids dating a supermodel like, Victoria, secret, supermodel. So I think he's okay. Yeah. Anyway, I who was there in the audience his mother kissed him before he went up. I totally thought he was married. I dunno. I thought it was married before you go, and she just broke off her engagement. That's also why everyone say. Well, I think they just have incredible chemistry. They have incredible respect for each other. And that can be more than just any kind of sexual tension. You know, the brilliant friends, and she talks about him with such respect he talks about how with such respect. And to me that performance was be careful and nothing other than beautiful. Yes. So they performed shallow together. Which is the song from the film star is born and his his what pisses me off your completely, right? Everyone on social media as a gag about. How you know they were literally having multiple orgasms while watching it, you know, and you know, they must be banging each other. You know, it could be possible. They just love an admire and respect each other. That is possible. I think even come in like like, no one could have that. I'm like she as us Christ. And don't get me wrong that chemistry was palpable. I mean, it was electric was steamy. It really was now I've also seen clips of them together talking about each other. Like, you said, and I saw when she did a Vegas show when she brought him up, and it was very similar and all the people obviously haven't seen that. They've just they just see this one clip them performing together. Anyway. Yeah. It's like, yeah. It was it was very hot and sexy. It was also very emotional, very moving and plus performance. That's how you provide song actors. Yeah. Maybe maybe that's what they were going for you know, so they hit. The nail on the head either way, but come on people that. Be youthful. It was the most memorable performance of the life performances. Honestly, no disrespect to them. I didn't even recall the other ones didn't like the Queen pinning. It was exactly so right. So open with Queen Brian. May Roger Taylor addin Lamba? It was it was okay. It was so fast, but everyone off their seats and happy that was kinda cool. Like, everyone was automatically totally reminiscent. And I guess his the problem. I mean, Brian May shreds on guitar. He's amazing but him and Roger Taylor. You know, they know Rolling Stones like in the seventies. And they jump up and down like Jaga. And I mean, come on Adam Lambert, God bless him. He has a great voice. You know? You'll never Cury. Exactly. So it's funny. You say that I forgot that they opened with Queen incredible. I think it was kind of mixed. It wasn't bad. It was just kind of forgotten bowl. And then not performance from coup-prone Gaga doing shallow. Just blew everything. I've of the what I mean, I think that's gonna be remembered for many years people hopefully will stop yelling on about the sexual tension. But I think the the actual performance it self was stunning. What's a month completely wrong? And they're together which is possible. Which also boy, you know, and I won't lie. They look great totally. But I'm just saying. It is possible. They just really admire inspect each other. And as you said that very good actors, then know what they're going for. I also really liked you wouldn't have particularly been into this. But they did a performance from the ballot bus scrubs the country performance. They did it's I liked it. Have you seen the film? No, I didn't see I liked that song. Sung by the actor in the movie. I didn't like the performance by them. It sounds like those two are really famous like. Yeah. Cowboy as calorie? I can't stand. Sara fischer. I apologize. Who were they? I don't remember that. 'cause I was I was being distracted a lot when that song was on. But I really liked how it sounded very famous country. Thanks apparently, not Cowboys is anyway. Okay. Good. And then look I do like the fact that, you know, not only did a big culturally significant African American movie like Black Panther a superhero movie claim I mean got like eleven Oscar nominations, and it ran away. I mean, it wasn't back with three wins. Which for a marvel superhero movie is pretty amazing and one for the valid valid that one original school one for costume design and production design, totally which was totally merited. I love that movie. I look back at the music and the costume and the production design. It was absolutely was worthy and deserved to agree. So very happy for that. And to the people that one those Oscars with emails of African American female. So that was fantastic. And you're right. I mean, come on. I mean, the the African Americans dominated the Oscars this year. I'm well deserved. That's the thing about the Oscars. Whether you're black white yellow, whatever color you are. You know, I like when the us go back to just aknowledging talent. And what was so great is the people at one here really were worthy of and these were good films. It was a better selection this year. I think especially than last year speaking of that you may may be getting to this. I didn't see clansmen. Do you feel that was well-deserved 'cause I didn't. I don't really know if that was well designed with Spike Lee, why told you about black klansman a little bit. Oh, no. I saw that movie. It's a solid movie. I enjoy it. What's jarring about that movie? Is it's funny. It's like a comedy. But it's quite jarring for Spike Lee. Yeah. And it does have quite a political message at the end. And all of that, Spike Lee is a very revered director who's been around for forty years. I haven't seen all of his films, but I've seen a dozen and like do the right thing as a masterpiece, Malcolm, X, Denzel isn't absolute masterpiece. And spike Lee's never won an Oscar. So yeah, he wants to play for black klansman. So I think that was absolutely worthy. That was a great win. And I was very happy from an also that was adorable. Sam Jackson, presenting the would Spike Lee literally leapt on Sam Jackson, like a little child wrapped his legs on them. So that was pretty cool. I love seeing that. Okay. Good. We'll look unless you have any other comments of specific highlights. I'm gonna go through kind of the categories. My absolute favorite your going to mention which was a Libya Coleman, speech rights all get to the. Okay. Can I go on a roll when we get Luca? Yeah. So I'm gonna go through the categories just follow my lead. And then we'll kind of disgust debate. And talk about what we liked didn't like on that. But yeah. So here are the different categories that I want to kind of highlight in this recap. So first and foremost best picture, so we had Roma Black Panther behemoth rhapsody, the favorite black klansman green book vice and a star is born close with the nominees for this year. And as I said, I think it was. As a better year than the year before. Yes, where the films that would just kind of like in quote made for Oscars, but one as rewatch -able. So I mean Black Panther very enjoyable film, Roma. Very interesting movie you haven't seen it yet. And I'm going to now it's a three hour movie. It's Annette flicks about almost nothing about a Mexican family that lives it's about. No, it's in Mexico, Mexico City. It's yeah. It's just cooled Roma. It's about a made living with this family, and what they go through. And that's all it's about and it goes on for three hours, and somehow it's beautiful and it held by attention from beginning to end. And and it was a good film. And at me, it's gorgeous cinematography. It's just I know it's it's a film that you can tell us kind of made from the heart is very personal relics production. Yeah. The the director Alfonzo Kron, I think it was somewhat maybe autobiography, and it really highlights Mexico City, and it was just a gorgeous. Film Bahamian wrap. St. I think was like aside from like, a marvel film like avengers Infinity war was like the most popular movie. Celebrating Freddie, Mercury Queen one of the greatest rock and roll bands. I've seen it three times. It's just a it's a sordid film elevated by just a sublime Remmy Malik, and it leaves you so happy and what I mean, not to fight it satisfy entertained. Yeah. The favorite which I haven't seen. I'm has rated that you have. I love his yoga's length amass and the cost of actresses for me as the poll Livia Coleman's, Emma stone. Rachel weiss. I'll let you talk about that. Because you've actually seen it. Well, wait to watch it. It's actually very surprising to me all three of those actresses to me could won best art or they were all nominated those roles, and they I've heard so many podcasts of each of them talking about each other and how much they respect each other. They became very close friends, really. And when you see the film, you'll understand why? I mean, it's it's. All about them. Right. Everyone else in that film is kinda like whatever, and they are all such great conniving characters. I mean, Rachel and Emma stone, these very conniving character the queen's affect full, and this is a funny thing the history from the true story was this very unknown kind of Queen because she was not very she was sick, mentally, and physically and very crazy that she lost seventeen children's seen. Wow. Very tragic, which was with the bunnies thing is. I don't know if you know that told me anyway thing about bunnies. Unease in hand jobs, apparently. Oh, yeah. But the film is. I mean, it's it's his style of filming. So it's very different. It's very quick witted that the script is what I think you will really appreciate it. I saw one didn't. I know. I was I was actually surprised Oviously. I also haven't seen green book. So I can you know, but I really really really liked it. Did you see the lobster? You know, keep telling me to the film of his I really you'll love that film. I I love I'm pretty all love the favor the killing of sacred deer was just it wasn't great. And then dog tooth is super weird. Those are his other films. Anyway, we'll move on green book one. Yes. And that was apparently a huge upset everyone thought Roma was going to win. Really? Yeah. Now, I don't fully understand this. Because apparently, they're saying the worst film to have a win best picture. And this is where when the media just have a fucking field day. So politically incorrect, and it's kind of what's right and wrong. These days, this is a film about a black gay, man. And this talion guy who starts off being kind of racist. And how they form this friendship and bonds like the film is all about love and everyone who's seen it. Absolutely loves it, and it. Yeah. Big hit. It was critically and commercially successful yet. Somehow the media still find a way to shit now. I haven't seen the film. I need to watch it one of the few ones. I haven't seen a long with the favorite Vigo. I love I love Maharshtra alley. I absolutely love Linda Dinelli. Anyway. I don't know. So it was apparently a huge upset that one. I'm happy that one. And it doesn't it sounded like a positive message. Right. You know? And I mean like we can all live together and Octavia Spencer, another amazing African American actress. Executive produced. It Mahar Sheila alley. I don't get it. Anyway, it sounds always gender being pushed by somebody. Apparently, the guy that Mahajanga alley played apparently his family want consulted on weren't involved in the movie, and it was the son of the the guy that Vigo plays. That wrote the script with Peter Farrelly, the Farrelly brothers of dumb and dumber. Isn't that funny? And there's something about Mary. And now, he's a Oscar winning best picture, how direct funny. It's so crazy anyway, that's green book. So it one I'm happy for it. And then the final two for best picture was vice with Christian bale, which I also haven't seen a star is born which is was a brilliantly made film, but very somber. Yeah. It was quote, unquote, like an Oscar movie it was beautifully was. It's also the fourth iteration of a star is born. So that's why for me it was I enjoy. Loyd it. I thought Bradley Cooper was sensational. Lenny elder established that she absolutely could act tonight already know. She's incredible Performa. Yeah. Okay. So those are all the best picture nominees and the win went to green book. Yeah. Okay. Good. So looking at the next categories we have best director. So the the nominees were Spike Lee for black klansman Adam McKay of vice Adam McKay, did I think like stepbrothers and films like that? So it's almost the same as Todd Phillips Todd Phillips to the different one Alfonzo Koran for Roma yorker slant. The Mus for the favorite and Powell Polack hausky for Cold War, which is film that came out of nowhere ever even heard of it. But someone campaigned hard for the. So Alan Koran one for Roma. And again, you haven't seen this. I can see that film was really a love letter to Mexico Akkad tell it was very personal. And it's just it's such an interesting film. Okay. What Chit see of in grosses you? It's it's three hours long about almost nothing. And I enjoyed it. I didn't I didn't love it like some people worship this film. But I do appreciate its aunt. And how it was made with so much love and passion. So that's director good old alpha Cronyn, I love him as a director. He's fantastic best song. So you had shallow from lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. She won the Oscar for very very Pap -solutely to me that was a shoe in. I actually didn't even remember the other songs that was one from like. Yeah. The BUSTER of ballots Strug's and from Black Panther on stuff. The song was amazing. And again, we've talked about it that that performance just kind of blew everything out of the water. It really was incredible best original music school. She had Black Panther your black klansman Mary Poppins returns. I love dogs, and if Beale street to talk they were the nominees and Black Panther one. Well, I loved about that was for film made like, you know, predominantly by these African American people it was this really like German looking guy was like aren't be of day would log. What your old guy? What's his name? Forgive me. Like Ludwig van Duke. VM even that an accident. It was just so funny to me he was like as white as white can be with long hand. It looks like he won't straight out of Baheen rhapsody. Yeah. The music from panther was fantastic. Good. You're totally right. The Oscars at did win. It really deserves. It really did. You know, I liked that. Because honestly of et one best picture, or you know, if one like an acting thing I would have been like are they? Are they giving it as a politically correct thing? I'm just saying no disrespect like Mike will be doing knows mazing in that movie. But I didn't feel like Oskar were these they truly deserve. When I especially when I took the competition's like, I totally see that. That's that's deserving. Okay. Good. And then see what other categories were just some of the main wants to talk about. Okay, good. So of course, we have best actor Bradley Cooper for a star is born was nominated Christian bale for vice who was like the favorite everyone thought. He was absolutely a show into win. Looks pretty good from the I mean, he's won supporting actor for the fighter, but he's never won best actor, and again, he totally transformed for this ROY gained sixty pounds to play Dick Cheney, blah, blah, blah, Remmy Malik for Bahia wraps, the he was the actual popular favorite like all the all the fans wanted him to win. But it was kind of almost like the underdog because bay was getting older kudos. He ended up winning which was beautiful. And each was. So sweet we'll talk about that in a minute. And then Willem Defoe attorneys gay. He plays Vincent Van Gogh. I haven't seen that yet. I mean, I love Willem Dafoe. So it's great to see him nominated and then Vigo Mortenson for green book, and I love Vigo. Yes. Let's talk about Remmy Malik winning. I mean, I was totally rooting for him. And I was so happy to see him win. Yeah. And his. Yeah. It was it was really sweet he just he was really communicating how how fast society has come right in what kind of films now making what were shining a spotlight on. He made this point which someone on again social media managed to make into a bad thing. I saw the other day, you know, he goes shocking. He goes, you know, this was a movie about, you know, a gay man, he says who became a singer and someone turned that intellect some bad thing like on some social media blog. But then all the comments were like, well, yeah, he was gay and he was an amazing performer. And he was saying as a good thing. Like look was shining a spotlight on people that really deserved it in the arts and this and that and it was so sweet. Yeah. And he also talked about himself coz before he mister robot. You know, he was like I was just as creek kid. No one I would be a star. I'd get any major roles, you know, and he'd been acting for over a decade Rummy Malik and he gets he small supporting roles on the. Yeah. Then he had a big breakthrough. Right. But that was kind of like a stereo role than highlight. And then mister robot gets the lead for you know, and then he becomes a breakout star. And then he gets cost as Freddie Mercury. And he wasn't the first choice and look now he's an Oscar winning actor in his first nomination. What's also adorable is he's now dating Lucy Boyne fees. The Costa was so. Yeah. From the actual MB big sloppy kiss went up. Yeah. We'll see how long that loss. I mean, the young and love I I hope it like it was a door to see I like to she was in sing street. It was well in Bohemia rhapsody. She's great. Okay. So that was the best actors, and then we have best actress so lady Gaga was nominated for a star is born Glenn Close was nominated for the wife. Nobody is seeing this movie. But I love Glenn Close and she has been nominated like seven or eight times. She's great. So she was like the. Favorite? Everyone was like, but see again that would have been like give her the honorary Oscar because she deserves not necessarily oh that was the role that she really deserved to win not ska for Melissa McCarthy was nominated for can you have a forget me. Have you seen that? Now. I'm very interested. We just saw it last week. Yeah. It was good. I mean, it's very dramatic. It's quite charming slow. But I I enjoyed it. And she was very goodness. She definitely I mean, she's a fantastic actress she really is. She can do everything Melissa McCarthy. Olivia Colman who was nominated for the favourite says she was like the underdog and then Ulitsa apper whissy. Oh, who's the laid the young lady plays the maiden Roma? She was that was kind of. I'm just happy to be here nomination. She was good that. So Glenn Close was by far who everyone thought was going to do it. And then lady Gaga was kind of like the favor, and then live your Coleman really was the underdog even though people knew. As you've said you've seen it. She was just electrifying in the movie. Also like I have to say look lady Gaga was solid in the performance. But as far as actresses go it wasn't like her. Her singing was amazing acting was decent to me. It wasn't an Oscar bid up some very raw powerful scenes. But again, I don't have a limit elevator Commons performance to compare yet. But I've seen her and other things like like broad Tra. And she's just she's incredible. Yeah. She's so spectacular. Not just that. She plays lady whose quirky and insane. But the some of the little just the small nuances of this character. Just incredible. I to me I said it outright to everybody. I was like she's gonna win. Not even a question. You're right. She did she made England proud. And I mean, her acceptance speech was my favorite thing, the entire show was it was so natural and adorable and everyone loved it ever, so British. That's what I loved about. I mean, number one she was truly shocked to release merely didn't think she was when she even said like Glenn Close. You're my hero. This is not the way. I wanted it to me. Yeah. Teared up. She was like I'm gonna go round and give everyone dog, you know, basically making out making I'll give him a kiss. And then, you know, love Rachel was one the phone the director. And then also like talking about kids watching like, well, you shouldn't be watching. But I kind of hope you on your naughty. And then when they when the music came onto like Galata, stop she was like. Mazars so charming, and she made Great Britain. And everyone was laughing so hard. I was like, wow can English, you know, the Americans handle this, but they love to Canada. Well, I mean, if people don't know Libya Coleman now, they now like she just made like millions of fans people absolutely adored that they found it so charming, and I'm so happy she won. She totally sounds like she deserved. I need to watch that movie. And I will I will very shortly. Okay. Goodson the next category to talk about is best supporting actor. So the nominees were Adam driver for black klansman. He was good. I was surprised that he got nominated. Honestly, I love Adam driver. But I didn't think it was very meaty role to be honest. I was a bit surprised Mahala alley for green book, who of course, one. And he was the favourite. But for some reason, I didn't know I wasn't really rooting for him. I guess because he had already just. One the moonlights, and you have seen it. So. Yeah. And then Sam Rockwell full of vice who I love who plays George Bush. Sam Elliott for a star is born which again, I thought was an augmentation. I love Sam Elliott. He is like one roar seen in that Kim. And I said not in it. That's what I mean. He's barely and there's only one actual meaty acting scenes the rest is just kind of exposition where he just kind of talks about he's he's got that one seem Bradley Kupa where they fight that was like on. So I found that a bit odd. Again, I feel like that was almost like a dude we owe. Sam Elliott a Oscar nomination because the guy's been acting for forty fifty years. Give them a better role to actually, you know, win or be really deserved a nomination because I love Sam, Elliot. And then Richard E grant for can you ever forgive me. He was my favorite. I kind of knew he wasn't gonna win. But he was my favorite. Everyone was. Rooting for Mahanta alley and he did win for green book. And it sounds like it was deserving. But Richard E grant is one of those like British treasures who has been acting for thirty or forty years. He's being in films like with Nell. And I which is like a British classic nouveau sina, but he was also in like spice weld the movie as the manager which I'm sorry unabashedly. I'm not ashamed. I loved that. Too. Bins watched it so many times, and he's so British and I don't him. So I loved seeing him in the spotlight because he's being acting for forty years, and he's never had this kind of claim. What I also love. I don't know. If you followed any of the social media he was just in heaven, the hya- time like from the moment. He got his first accolades claim to his, you know, BAFTA nomination golden, he he would release these little clips and social media just so excited off just so happy to be here in the Oscars. He was taking self easy with everyone apparently is a huge fan of baba Streisand's when she was up. He was like home. My god. It was just really in jeering adorable again another Brett making us proud. Okay. Good. So that was supporting actor category. And then let's go for a few other little catch grease. All right. Let's see actress that's Horton's. Yes. So the the next category is best supporting actress. So the nominees were Emma stone for the favorite who was adorable. She kind of I think she went a company Avia Coleman, this Dato something I didn't know, but it was sitting next to each other Regina king for if Beale street could talk who won. I never even heard of this movie you'd like other. I love regaining thing from Jerry Maguire of senior on a lot of great things. Rachel weeps for the favorite Russia SOGA. Yeah. Well, I'm sure I love her marina data. Vera, former Roma who played the wife in the family. She was great. So I was happy to see her knowledge and then Amy Adams for vice poor, Amy Adams. It's like a seventh or eighth nomination. She's great. She's great and everything. She never seems to be like the front runner. That's what's so odd. She's she's one of those actresses who. It's just a matter of time. She will shoe like Leo. She walked absolutely win an Oscar. It's just funny like she's never like in the main conversation, right? But she just gets nominated every other year. Yeah. It's kinda bizarre. So yeah, I can't comment much on regain the king. I love her to death again. Another African American that once you had best supporting actor and best supporting actress, you know, both African American. So I mean, really tastic I do love the diversity that certainly not an issue anymore. And then people talking about women, well that doesn't seem to be an issue. So I guess next will be gay and transgender look, everyone should work. Everyone should have an opportunity to have a platform and entertain and do things that make people happy. I'm all for it. All you know, what I mean? I I want movies or an escape, and they also work as an escape from the reality. Sometimes, you know, the main so people just need to loosen up and have fun. And I'm not saying they need to offend anyone like, it's entertainment. Well, there was that comment on that thing I was talking about by rabbi Malik this the first comment. I saw was some guy postings America. Stop being offended by everything had like four hundred likes. I mean, I think that's how most of us actually feel it is ridiculous. And unfortunately, you have the status quo. Everyone tries to jump on the same bandwagon. I've always been a bit kind of lazy in Switzerland about everything, you know, I'm with you. I'm gonna fight look if something positive supported if something's negative don't, you know, it's hurtful and actually damages in Homs. Find people also have a right to their different opinions views, you know, and I know we need to all kind of anyway, I could go on the Hanjin, and I won't get get along. You know? We'll watch movies together. You know, something we can do. Okay. Good. A few more hair best animated feature. So Ralph breaks the internet was nominated. I love dogs Mirai which have never heard of Spiderman into the spy diverse, which one I called the hand incredible too. So I called that to what's funny is I probably would have given it to either dogs because that was the most resonant for me. But I know how much people love Spiderman into the spite of us, and I really need to rewatch didn't love first half of it. I loved and then it lost me on the law stack. So I need to watch it again. It was also in the evening. It was later in any of those really none of them even breaks. I missed a yen. Yeah. I know. Yeah. I don't know that was like the strongest competition for best animated feature. But I'm very happy for Spiderman into the spy diverse, and look it was gorgeous to look at it was made with so much love and passion. Got up there for the wind seemed adorable cute. They was so recited in Phil Lord. It's the guys who do the LEGO movies twenty. I didn't know that twenty one jump street twenty jump strokes. They were the directors that were hired for the solo movie fired from his 'cause they was coming. Yeah. They were they were door -able. Okay. That see adapted screenplay. So the nominees were Joel Cohen for the ballot of BUSTER Scruggs to DC that fell asleep. It's a bunch of stories I just couldn't get into their depressing. Some of them quite beautiful and wanting very depressing Kevin will Mont for black klansman along with Spike Lee hu. One Nicole hall of center for can you ever? Forgive me. Eric Roth for a star is born and berry Jenkins for if Beale street could talk. So as we said black clansman one. I mean, the story of black klansman is incredible space on the real book of a real African American cop in the sixties seventies to enrolled in in the, you know, the klu Klux Klan, he went undercover undercover with a, you know, Adam driver plays the the white guy who actually met with the clue. Face to face as him. And he did all the phone calls. You know, like a great movie. You know, I'm like a great movie. He is crazy. Oh, it's a good fill. You haven't seen it? So good film, quite quite funny. And then a bit jarring as well. But very solid film. A great return to form for spike clay, cool because I loved his movies eight a windows as well. Who is that? No. That was no that Steve. Yeah. Sorry, which got completely snubbed the I loved it. I still haven't seen it. Yeah. I will get round to it. Anyway. So that was a data screenplay which went to black klansman and original screenplay. You at Porsche raider who was nominated for first reformed. You see that movie hawk a great performance from Ethan Hawke, a lot of people feel that was one of the biggest snubs, oh, he didn't even get nominated. I think it's because that movie was just too damn with what's it's regarding the priest and Amanda, see free this girl, you know, whose husband is kind of tortured, and it's a weird movie, man. It's so slow. It's very artsy. I watched it. And I didn't know what the fuck was going on. What's going on that stuff? He was. He was good in. I was very surprised that even if a screen play. But that's that Peter Farrelly for green book as we discussed who won. They won the Oscar for that. I mean, he's just come such a long way from like, dumb and. Gumma me myself, and I renew and frigging. Slapstick funny movies. There's something about Mary these days. Getting a decent comedy is actually like few and far between in my opinion. With is true. I've always said actually in the low comedian say that comedy is hard. It is drama sometimes know. Yeah. You know, maybe dramatic actors scoff at that. I don't know, but I can get where the coming from Adam McKay for vice Alfonzo Koran for Roma and Tony McNamara for the favorite those were the the script writers for original screenplay and Peter Farrelly as I said one for green book. All right. And then I'll just do two more categories hit the I feel a a really important cinematography. Yeah. Were they almost shunned it from the show, you know, to me like, okay, I watched a movie a week or so ago called days of heaven from Terrence Malick have you ever seen that film? I watched that movie purely for the cinematography the story line is actually very slow. It's a Richard Gere movie from the seventies. But has some of the most stunning cinematography or ever see and at one an Oscar for cinematography, but like I will watch that movie pretty much just below two thousand one space odyssey cinematography with special effects. That's what I find the most gripping when I watch it, you know. So to me, I mean blade are in itself yet blade one or two thousand and forty nine that cinematography elevators looney Tor home new level. So to me, I look every category is actually crucial because a lot of people. Editing and sound people never get highlighted. They should be. And the thing is directors himself was films nothing without Edison, you know, without the music, but what's bizarre about cinematography. Is that is one that is so front and visuals so is so strange to me that they picked a category like cinematography or Rene calm and costume designed to cut out of the performance. It was just really strange anyway, they didn't and the ones that were nominated were the favorite a star is born Cold War and Rama and Romo one. Once this the cinematography this year. I think was as stunning this man was nominated tuna not for cinematography enough. Sure. Yeah. They want one for the next catch about talk about. Yes. So cinematography was the favorite a star is born Cold War and Roma those were the nominees and Roma one. And when I look at this the cinematography this wasn't. Actually as stunning, you know, because usually it's big vistas landscapes and stuff like that. And actually, I can kind of appreciate why Roma one it's got some incredible panning shots of like the girl just walking through the streets of Mexico, and on the beach and things like that. But anyway, cinematography it's one of my absolute favorite parts of the movie. Yeah. In the lots will cover is visual effects and the nominees for that was Christopher Robin, which I still haven't seen. I really want to watch that. You saw rub loved it was adorable. Yeah. Let's door. Sweet. And the way the PU look as genuine Winnie the Pooh that one really doesn't which I mean, I'll childhood we grew up right near a hundred. Last year. But we actually grew up there as well Ashdown forest. They called it the hundred acre wood in the book series, and they do a beautiful job of where they shoot it. And it's just charming. That's right child. He played pooh-sticks actually where we went on a hike. They show a whole scene right there. Last year was useful. I need to watch. I'm gonna love it to be in like a Sunday afternoon warm fuzzy mood, you know, really lovely avengers Infinity war, which I'm surprised didn't win. Visuals come on. I man which one which for me, I really get that ready player one which I thought was incredible. And so though Star Wars story, so yeah, I man won the visuals best visual effects. You know, where that movie was hit and miss to me because I saw the film. It was a good film. I like Damian Chazelle director. I love guzzling lovecraft Foy a with discussed this that film. Whatever approach they were trying to take with it just didn't work. It was very somber approach concentrated on the sorrow of his life. Inside of the good pots how much Neil Armstrong is and even happen, right? Even the moon landing somehow, they turned into this summer thing. And what I didn't like about the visual effects as they tried to do something very different where they tried to do very close panned shots. Very rickety. Cam. Promotions with it didn't work for me. So I was actually doing. War of the. What was the last one ready play a one ready play a one? Absolutely. I was kinda shocked one. But then again, when the they went up on stage, they were like, wow, thank you for knowledge in because we did something quite different. So remember that caught my attention those? Yeah, you really didn't it didn't work for me. But but that's cool. Anyway. So those are the main catch agrees. So again, I'm not leaving out other ones because I feel they're unimportant. I'm not doing that little but there's like twenty four catch agrees would be here for two hours. Right. I wanted to kind of highlight the main ones now it was like eleven percent up on ratings. So, you know, actually did do better as I said a lot of people even the media who cares about the media. But a lot of people saying, actually, maybe the thing we learnt it doesn't have the host. I think ended abruptly Julia Roberts came up. I mean, that's the other thing that we haven't even talked about. So it's been an a solid Oscar tradition that the best actor presents best-actress and the best actress percents best actor, and they just through the window this year that was a cool tradition. Yeah. I guess it was. But then again, I didn't even notice it until now I just realized I did think it was a bit. I mean who else better to close out and Julia Roberts when she came up. I was just like she's just sills studying. She's just still the Pitta me of a Hollywood stars. She so classical still she just looks absolutely phenomenal. But yes, she so she presented best picture. And then she was like that's the end of the show. Guys, you know, and it was a bit the show on out, maybe with a performance or something. Yeah. I don't know that they have to have a host. But I think they need to glue the segments together a bit better. I think with that. Yeah. But you're right. Honestly don't know if they need to host. I don't I don't know that she fits all just Mustang bad jokes or political jokes, or whatever, you know. Hugh Jackman add having back any day. No, just because he can perform he did a great show. Right. Tis acclaimed as one of the best hosts in the last twenty years, wonderful guy, and is not gonna communicate things that are stupid. And then this James Franco outta Hathaway. Remember, thus known as one of the worst ones where he just don't remember. He came on stage in the dress. And they were both stoned or he was stoned. They was four years ago. So it's like a decade ago. But they were so deadpan it was it was that was the one where you just didn't need. I want anything else. You wanna comment about the Oscars? I mean overall, it was it wasn't great. But it was bettas fun. Okay. It was definitely. Elevated to me enough that I'll watch next year and be like, okay. Maybe we're reviving the Oscars a little to be back to what they should be. And I liked that. They did a montage on all the movies came out not year. Not just the Oscar film. So have you noticed a few minute? Montage of all the releases to kind of get them a spotlight in memoriam. They did as well. Which was kind of. Okay. I mean, also I hate to say, I just didn't know most of those Pino which was on us. I mean, I'm not saying it's good that we didn't have big man seemed like they died of old age rose to the dreadful year. We had before with. This one we loved dying Burt Reynolds album there were a few. But you're right. Yeah. I didn't know it was a solid show. It was it was kind of Alden strange with the new format, but it really didn't matter. And I think what helped was there was a good diverse mix of films, and really, and it's all because still the media tried to find ways to shift will over it. But like this. I mean, you had a lot of women you have a lot of African Americans. You had Asians crazy. Rich, Asians was a huge film. This yet, you know. So the foments is good. Yeah. They were they were pretty good. We'll Jennifer Hudson was very off pitch. I didn't actually really fully hear that a lot of media gave her show on that. And I remember Danny my wife when we're watching it. She's like she's really singing off key. And I couldn't put my finger because I still think she has an incredible voice. But there was something off kilter about it. And I just honestly again, I don't even remember the others. The cowboy people. Tony gosh. All right. Well, that's our two thousand nineteen Oscar recap. And let's see how it goes next to, you know, I'm curious to see if they'll bring back the format with a host and everything or they'll just go. You know, what we're onto something kinda mix it up and in that. No. I mean, there's plenty of good movies coming out. I hope we have lots more to be excited about next year. Well this year, I mean before the of recap at the so many remakes, which really. I'm a sucker for those. But I don't really know the front runners yet for the Oscars next year. I actually have no clue so that will be exciting to kinda see as it unfolds. Yeah. Okay. My dear. Well, that's it. Good night. Everyone CNN time.

Episode 159: The Little Things

"Hello everybody back to the film butts. Podcasts this is episode number. One hundred and fifty nine and a name is henry. And i'm paul this week. We got a pretty packed show. We have a review of the little things now on hbo. Max starring denzel washington. Jared leto the king of course and then we have some news to talk about. I think we might touch on the passing of christopher plummer as well as some of the trailers that came out during the super bowl like falcon and the winter soldier and others. The new m m night shyamalan film perhaps have a can't talk today. We have a listener question other stuff. We watched so. Thanks again for joining us. Paul how you doing. I'm doing well. I've got about a week until i find out if i made it onto the finals of the competition that i in for my my novella. So that's getting close. The other podcasts. That i work with is dropping. Its hundredth episode this week and so it's just been. It's been a good week. It's been quiet. Saw some family. My wife's family pretty recently. So it's been it's been good. How have you been. How are your classes not too bad. And they're pretty time consuming but they're going well all considering and getting ready to graduate in may so just trying to prep for that thinking about my my next move and of course any any decisions i make with that. I'll make sure to share with the class here but otherwise yes damn busy as always and yeah working on music buds as well doing some some interviews for that and doing well thankfully yeah not too much else to mention really maybe one more plug. If you have not checked out our most recent bonus show we did it on disney live action films specifically some of the fantasy reboots and remakes over the last few years. And that's available at the film. Buds dot band camp dot com for just a one dollar donation and all the donations go to help support the show. So it's always nice for people to do that. Yeah a paul. I mean anything else. You want to mention men. I mean we got a lot to talk about. Yeah we do. We've got We've got quite the movie on our hands. Yes all right well yeah. Let's let's not waste any more time and get into our review of the little things and we do have a clip this time. So take a listen. Can i help you saw the sale sign. That was for another car a lot of miles on it. You know as a drug space standard on by. Take a look. I'm in the market. It's not for sale. All i need to do. You must really like my car. I do all right. As i said the little things is on. Hbo max now. And it is directed written and directed by john lee hancock. It stars denzel washington rami. Malek jared leto. Those are the big three in any big ones that i haven't touched on paul. No i mean those are. Those are the big ones really. Andy's synopsis is kern county. Deputy sheriff joe. Deacon is sent to los angeles for what should have been a quick evidence gathering assignment instead he becomes embroiled in the search for a serial killer who is terrorizing the city so far this one has i don't know i mean i guess it's been kind of. I don't know how people are feeling about this. One paul no. I feel like it's gotten reception. It deserves yeah. I mean it's it's you know john lee. Hancock directed the blind side. The alamo the founder saving. Mr banks obviously likes movies with titles that start with the. Yeah but you think of it. So i'm always up for a good mystery. Kind of pulpy crime thriller this movie. Perhaps too much so feels very david. Fincher hearkens back to zodiac seven at times a little too much and as much as i do rag on jared leto. I actually do like him for many reasons. I'm a big thirty seconds to mars fan. I don't think that all of his film performances are great. But what. I can't say for him. Is there almost never boring. Sometimes they're bad but they're at memorable in one way or the other. I can't always say that about a lot of actors. He kind of goes for it and he is a screen eater as i like to say for sure. He's you know he's there on screen and in a way. That's an accomplishment. But as i said it doesn't always work out for the better denzel. I mean it doesn't need to be said but he's he's great in this and he's great. You know really all around. I think remmy malik. He's hitting mess for me. A mister robot. I i like him in and a few other things but he's very good for an actor to have a mysterious side to them but that allows you to want to know what they're thinking but he has that but i don't always want to know what he's thinking. Does that make sense. That was very wordy and very messy. But it's like he has a mysterious side. But i'm like i'm not always curious as to what's going on in his head. There's a difference between intrigue and 'ambiguities and emotional ambiguity. I don't care like mystique you want to there. There should be something underneath at that. Should be drawing someone in kind of the difference. Yeah and thank you. Though the way. I describe that really shows how much schooling has been paying off but any anyhow circling back around overall. There were parts of it i liked. I thought there were sequences. That were very well done. It built an atmosphere well overall though i did not like it. I think it's not a horrible movie. But i think the worst part about it. and perhaps this is a spoiler. I don't know. I think the ending ruins it. I think that the third act without plays out really hurts the amount of time that you spent with these characters and in this mystery. And it feels very unsatisfying and so in some ways it is better directed than a lot of movies. I've seen recently however the sum of its parts is not enough for me to really give it a pass inca. What about you paul. no i can. I can completely see where you're coming from with that. You know i think that there. There's nothing wrong i like. You said you know with like a pretty straightforward thriller. I mean people. People enjoy that thing all of the time right. I mean that's why we have teen million like cop shows and detective stories and things like that. You know people people like this story. People like the formula of what this story's barebones is right. The the issue with this movie is that this is so very painfully. Paint by numbers Almost amateurish and i completely agree the whole time. It felt late. John lee hancock doing his best. David fincher impression. That was just like not not to interrupt you too much. But the the opening scene is almost barf inducing in how close it is to the zodiac sequence on the highway. Yeah like immediately. When that scene started i was like. Oh he's probably zodiac once or twice you know but Continue and you know. Even with jared leto. Everyone is people are not everyone but people are surprised that he got a golden globe nomination for this performance he apparently is amongst them. And i can see why it's because he honestly there's nothing underlying his psychosis he's just putting on a bunch of like weirdo affect haitians. And it feels like jared leto being like. I could've been on mind. Hunter see and so now the whole thing does feel like a really bad impression of a of a very particular filmmakers overall style and yet you know the issue i think with that with the the third act reveal isn't necessarily so much the core concept it's the execution it's the fact that like again jared. Leto character isn't motivated. Why is he doing this. Why did he choose him for what he's doing You know there's that sort of brief bit about ego but it's like how are you punishing him like what's what's the end game here and so i think the issue is just that there's nothing underlying any of his motivations as a character in his actions in performance in a net third act structure I think denzel honestly. I'm embarrassed denzel in this just because i know that denzel can do better and he just seemed to not give a shit really like he. He seemed asleep. The most awake he seemed was at the very very end. The rest of the time. I was like oh this is this is kind of exactly what you did in the equalizer. Isn't it yeah. Look like a kind of tired gruff man. You know and so. I think that he didn't really bring anything to this character. That couldn't have been brought by someone else. I think that this is one of his least memorable performances. You know. I've been kind of disappointed lately by tom. Hanks but then. I saw this and i was like oh well you know at least tom. Hanks hasn't found the bottom yet. So and remmy malik yet for me. He was kind of all over the place as well There were times where. I thought i understood his character and then he had like you know these random outbursts where he hits the window. You know when aggravation because he's a cop on the edge and lake and then all throughout the movie and i don't know if you noticed this and this was something that really bothered me. Was this weird like dan. Dan data like this weird like motivational late. The teacher getting the students to understand moment music in just the strangest of places. Now you've got denzel smacked out of his mind talking about you. Know what it's gonna take to to get the bad guy. And how he's pushing himself and you know that he knows that it's this and blah blah blah and it's got this weird this really weird musical kick to it and so i'm honestly not sure what the hell is going on with this movie but it's titled get one thing right. It's the little things that matter and if you know a little mammalian little things aren't working in your movie than the whole thing's just going to be kind of a mess. Yeah but but also on that point. I think the title doesn't really speak to the movie because there are now many little things there are. it's not like you know for example in zodiac so much information and it is. It pays a attention to detail so well and that movie like for you could call that the little things and have that make more sense but in this. It's so distant and brought your so. I felt so removed from everybody does like what details and little things quote unquote rece- supposed to be paying attention to there's that every once in a while but that's the case with every movie that's ever existed you know it's not like they're they're constantly finding out information about or having twists because of little things. They're discovering yeah. They didn't feel like detectives in any kind of way. They just felt like the plot happening and they were going through it like it didn't feel in any way like true detective story. Yeah and it's just you know. I'm not sure what exactly it was that he was going forward. Because it is. I think it is rated r. Yeah but it's also like one of the softest films. I think i've ever seen i mean. Basically the only really gruesome thing is when you see the body in the apartment i think. That's the only kind of gruesome at the one you know. Full frontal nudity shot from like across the street of the dead body. And that's about it. You know you can go and you can find and this is really the cardinal sin of the movie is like you can go and find considerably better entertainment of this variety on. Hbo's platform to go and watch the wire you can go and watch true. Detective there are so many other things that are available on their own platform. That are better than this that this offering with like the prestige. That was given as almost ridiculous. Like the fact that this script got this cast and this kind of like attention and was given a big platform on on a big Studios network is kind of ludicrous to me. 'cause like this is. This is like the most standard version of this story that you could possibly do. Yeah yeah i agree. And and also with john lee hancock. I mean i i liked saving mr banks and i've enjoyed a couple of his other movies. But it's kind of an odd departure. Almost how. I think of tate taylor when he went from the help to the girl on the train. To ma that octavia spencer film. It's like okay. So i would not think the film you're going to do. After the help is the girl on the train and almost that movie. He felt out of his element not to say. It's a bad thing for directors directors to change it up but he almost fell. Johnny hancocks out out of his element a little bit in this where he was as. We've said kind of calling back to other directors too much. yeah. I liked the founder with Michael keaton it's a very competently done film but a lot of the thing that i really like the most about that movie is the michael. Keaton performance I think that it's a very straightforward bio pic. That's elevated by like an above average performance saving. Mr banks is good. You know it's a little bit hamstring by disney not allowing some of the realities of walt disney as a person to really be present in that movie. Here's a fun fact walt. Disney was a smoker and. Tom hanks apparently wanted him to be smoking on screen and disney absolutely said no and so the the sort of compromise that they made was him that one shot of him stubbing out a cigarette right if he's telling someone to come into his office and little compromise. You know when you're having to go down to that level of detail to scrutinize a film. You know that's gonna hamstring you a little bit so like i give that movie a lot of leeway and think that it did a pretty good job with with what it had to know this. This and i even. It's all an execution right. There's nothing theoretically wrong with this film. So we'll get into spoiler now that where you know decently along sure so the whole time you know that there's obviously something wrong with like denzel past and his relationship to this case and you can't quite figure out what it is because they're obviously not telling you something which is fine but at a certain point you need to start giving me clues as to what it is and you never really get that so that way when you gets the aha moment of the third act which is that remmy. Malik made the same stake. Kind of you know Denzel did they both killed someone the wrong person that they needed to kill in this case to try and catch the serial killer for denzel. He killed a victim on accident. He shoots them in in the chassis shoots her in the chest and they they all like covered up the cops all get together and covered up and then in the case of ramming malik. He's convinced the leto is the killer and it turns out that he's probably not although there's definitely something wrong with him he is not the killer and he ends up getting killed with shovel and then denzel comes and helps them cover it up. And and that's kind of the whole big finale of the thing and the problem is you don't get to have any clues to like that a ha moment for you as the character being like. Oh my god. This is what he did and then like having the realizations sort of blossom in front of you as well in the movie. It just ends up being this kind of look at how twisty we get fuck. You m night ain't got shit on a left. Here's the left turn and it just you know. It doesn't really quite work. it's just an. It's very much like the moment in seven. Where he's toyed. kevin. Spacey's killer has toyed with brad pitt. To the point. The brad pitts now willing to commit murder you know. It works effectively in that movie because he has been the killer he has been the one driving them this far and then he goes and he kills someone important to our lead character that finally turns into the sin that he is which is wrath. And so in this instead. It's sort of like jared leto fucking with them. Like i said for no apparent reason really other than because No idea what his end goal is and so they just don't earn that ending in any kind of way it just it falls apart and and it ends up falling flat and so even though it's kind of interesting for a brief moment just in sort of conception the execution of it's all off and so the whole movie doesn't work because the entire execution of the movies just kind of off. Yeah ni- i agree it. I'm fine with that kind of circular nature of where you're seeing the younger person become you know the the mentor so to speak you know and but in this it's like the ideas or and and very much the execution as you said after an against spoilers here what happens to jared leto. And the time that he then spend with remy malik. It's not very thought provoking ears kind of watching him. Sit there and you're like okay. What am i supposed to be thinking about. And whether that's his performance and or the direction you know. I i don't know but that was very frustrating. Because in the end it adds up to basically nothing and so you spent at what i think at least two hours with these characters and in this plot like that's all we get for this various low. Burn pulpy film. That is kind of teasing you along and so it leaves a bad taste in your mouth for sure. It's a thriller without any urgency. Even when they add in ticking clock of today's it never feels like that is actually urgent. So it's a thriller without any urgency. That leads to anti-climactic finale. The doesn't amount to anything or the killer isn't caught and two cops get away with with murder Yea now paul you a you. Of course anyone that knows you knows that you love jared leto. You're just you know you can't get enough of this guy. how how how. How did you feel about him. In this one jared leto. I have liked jared leto in like a few things. I think that he's pretty good in lord of war where he plays in a cage cages brother. I think that he's good in that. I even like jared leto in requiem for green. Oh yeah he's great. In that great movie you know honestly one of his best performances ever. I guess this one the thing that's offensive about it is just it's lack of trying you know like it's it's not as hammy and his ridiculous and to the same sort of like guttural hate that i feel for his interpretation of joker which i think is horrendous but this is just kind of him being sleepy and being weird and and it's like i can. I could have been charles manson. No-one cast me as manson anything. I could be manson. I look like had jesus so it doesn't feel like you know he's really doing much of anything and so the whole time. Honestly i was pretty. I was pretty bored. I thought that he was one of the best performers in the movie but that was also i guess kind of low bar for me and so it's unfortunately kind of disappointing because he can't even really watch it and get that kind of visceral reaction where it's at least an attempt at something you know so so of an interpretation that you either love it or you hate it. It's just there. He's he's just present in the movie. Which i think is even worse. Probably than than giving me something that i have like some sort of visceral reaction to yeah and he always he always has to put on these little affectation mannerisms characters and again. It's like sometimes that does make them the character or the performance interesting and that's part of the reason why i always like to see what he's doing because you never know what he's gonna pull you know and that on its own is kind of a success you know. Yeah and in this. I think he was by far my my favorite performance and i always enjoyed what when the movie would cut back to him. It's like okay. i'm back in now. It's going to be weird. It may not be totally successful. But at least it's different and it's out there like for example. His walk is amazing. Best walk i mean. Give them the golden globe for that love with the with the weird pot belly. Yes give give. I mean you know his facial expressions and everything aside just give them the the nominee the award for the walk when orders. The shirley temple great stuff. You know. it's like know it's one of those performances that it's not his best for sure but in this movie It was my favorite part better or worse you know. Yeah and i think that really speaks to the movie on a lot of levels Yeah you know. here's a little. Here's one other little fun thing. I'll throw in about the movie. So there's that part where he goes to the a strip joint that's on they show you the intersection. It's like victory in bellingham. Right and it's the strip club and like a walk or a wells fargo and i was sitting there and i saw that and i was like i know where this is. I've driven past the strip club before. Really and so i go and i look up. Where victory in bellingham is and victory and bellingham is right over by victory and laurel canyon right over by the the. I think the one ten and i used to live off of victory. Wow i used to live over by By victory laurel canyon. And that kind of thing. I was in north hollywood. And it's that's that exit that i would take to get home. It was like the strip club was right there. And the the street that intersects with laurel canyon is where the final car chases at the end of night crawler. that's right. yeah that's cool now Little little bit of weird random film history related to geography there. This this movie will always be with you. Paul oh yeah yup thon place in my heart. Yeah remembering that strip club. Yeah well anything else about the little things anything. In particular that moment that denzel was like pass becomes future comes past comes future and was like cracked out of his mind and the hotel. All i could think was tons of flat circle. You know just went right to true detective matthew mocatta. I was just like. I've heard this before but now that's about everything. I think that i can think of. Although did you notice that like denzel. Pupils were like enormous the whole time not not. I didn't think so okay. Go back and like don't watch the whole movie but like go back specifically to that scene where he's in there with with a remmy malik and remmy malik scott. I'm like against the wall in the light coming in through the window. His pupils are enormous us. Something so you know. Like i'm guessing it was some sort of contact lens but i'm like is that like as he's supposed to always see him do as drinking so like what's going on here but denzel pupils are enormous throughout that movie. I can't speak to any any particular reason as to why but great stuff all right. We'll out of five stars paul. Half half a star half. yeah hafer. i'll go to an ass you know. How very generous. I mean there are parts of it. I i enjoyed i. I made it to the end so i i almost. I almost quit watching it. Oh yeah yeah i. Almost i almost dropped out. I was like. I may not finish it. Okay let me say this. If i wasn't watching for the podcast. I would've stopped probably there. We go and that's exactly what kept me going as well as i was like. Gotta do it for the podcast. Dan i do it for you people so you don't have to. Yeah okay cool. Well i guess we can move onto some news. So i the big thing of course is the passing of christopher plummer legendary actor and yet is passed away. A few days ago was quite old early nineties. I believe so you know and yeah. We'll paul i mean. Of course it's it's very sad but he did leave quite a body of work behind. Yeah you know Unfortunately he's growing a an ever-growing list you know you had claris leach. Menu had cecily tyson. You had Other was one more because it was like ninety four years old ninety five years old ninety six years old christopher plummer of course ninety one i like christopher plummer a lot. I've always enjoyed his work. You know. I remember as a kid watching sound of music in that was probably like the first christopher plummer movie that i saw like a lot of people my dad true story saw sound of music three times in theaters back when it came out when he was a kid ohio. Then it's one of his all time favorite movies but you know i loved christopher plummer recently in knives out he was still producing great work so it certainly is is a shame to see him go but you know like it's a stressful time and i wouldn't be surprised if some of the reason that we're losing some of these people is just that this time is especially stressful on on elderly people since they are especially isolated. Yeah yeah i. I agree and you know yet knives out. He's he's great in all the money in the world. The ridley scott film. I enjoyed him in that. I still haven't seen that movie. It's i don't know why. I enjoy it so much. It's it's like a wonderfully average film. But for some reason i i. I connect with that. I don't know why would be a good one for a review at some point because there are a lot of interesting parts about it. But what do you do. You think that the reason that connects with you is because you're aware of like the back history of how christopher plummer ended up in the movie. That wasn't my my real interest in watching it for the first time it was. I think it's more so ridley scott. And so i mean that one of his style. Yeah yeah yeah and you know. He was in shutter island the girl with the dragon tattoo and so he's been in a lot of really cool supporting roles and of course knives out as we said is great. So yeah it's really a shame but He has left so many great films and performances behind him. Yeah you know That is always again the benefit of fellas that even if you lose that person you can always go back you know. It's a pale comparison but you can at least always sort of go back and and have that person in sort of way through their performance because some of them is always you know in there. Yeah so yeah you know. It's a great shame but you know if you're ever missing him. You can always go in and watch as as john adam gates in the disney adventure film national treasure. That's on our list of. Yeah yeah let's do both of them. Why not way is there. I thought there was three or is there only two so far. There's only two national trauma only only two of those national treasures. And that's that's a shame. Okay well i guess we can touch on some of the super bowl trailers obviously every year. We get a lot of new trailers and promos during the super bowl in this considering. All that's going on there weren't a huge amount of of great ones. But i guess one. Big one is marvel's falcon and the winter soldier which is coming on disney plus and march march nineteen. Yeah and it is a series with about the titular characters. Of course paul. You know the mcu head. What did you feel about this one. I'm excited you know. I'm all here for lethal weapon in in tights know i enjoy those sorts of dynamics. I enjoy the charisma between those two actors as well. I think they have great screen chemistry together. And i love daniel berle's Baron zemo from civil war. I think that he's kind of an underappreciated villain an under appreciated performance. So i'm excited to come back. I don't think that this is going to be as much of a blow away thing for me. Is like wanda vision is right now. Just because i think juan division conceptually is already baked into be more surprising a little bit more interesting and a little bit more trying something new whereas this is definitely a continuation of of a franchise that we've had you know just being helmed by different people but i'm very much excited for it. This is kind of the arc that follows from one of the more recent marvel comic universes. I guess you could say launches its from like marble now ish. I think which is when you know cap got old and laughed and robert and iron man was gone and you got iron heart and captain. America became falcon and I think that's also went. Hulk became like an asian teenager. Named amadeus show. And that's when miss marple showed up with kamala khan And so a lot of that's being echoed right now in what they're doing in their films and tv shows there's a miss marple tv. Show coming out. You've now got falcon taking over the role of captain america. So yeah i'm pretty pumped for it. I think it'll be good. I liked the trailer relates. the energy. what did you think yeah i. Winter soldiers my favorite marvel film. I i do love sebastian. Stan and the winter soldier character. I think my favorite villain of that world as well. I do like anthony mackie a lot. One thing i will say they'll even. This goes back to that that film. I don't for some reason. I don't like the design of his costume. Something about it. It's maybe a little too goofy or little too colorful out. I mean it's a little thing. Obviously but like i love that. I like him a lot. I think the show is. You're kind of san. It's not really going to convert people to love marvel if they don't already you know. Yeah but for everyone who does enjoy it. It's going to be a shirley a solid entry in the first universe. Yeah i mean. I'll definitely check it out but it's not one like oh my god it's going to change everything and so yeah i'm i'll definitely check it out for sure i think. I think it'll be a leaps and bounds better than the mandalorian either season shirley. No i think that it'll be fun. I understand why you don't like the costume. I think would would you prefer it. Maybe if it weren't quite so bulky. I don't like the goggles okay. Yeah and i honestly. I couldn't tell you why it's just the from the very second that he in winter soldier when he flies up on a rooftop when he's i are introduced to him that way i was like i don't like it again. It's just a purely personal subjective thing but something about it does not does not mesh. I think anthony mackie is perfect in that but something about that design even if it hearkens even if it's very close to the original it's just i i don't know why she doesn't and i mean there are other ones in the world that also don't do it for me but in terms of the captain america winter soldier group. I don't love that. No i i can. I can certainly appreciate that there. Some constants that work for me. The the don't work for other people and and vice versa. I've of the controversial opinion. I love captain. America's first avengers costume like ultra star spangled blue and white And read one. I think that's a great great. Take on like an absolutely fucking ridiculous costume And so i think that it's super super fund and i know that everyone loves the stealth sued from winter soldier But i always like his more colorful ones. I love his world war. Two costume star-spangled man one from the avengers. I do like his patriot. Look you know when he's rugged cap with the beard you know. Yeah but but who doesn't know. I'm glad that they chopped off his hair. All i liked the hair. I liked the nah. The captain america winter soldier. Look so yeah. i'm sure. I'm i might be in the minority there but i that's i actually am upset that they it i like. I like it when he's like the highway chase when he's in his suit and he has the hair and all that i'm in love it. Okay well you know the the goggles don't do it for you. The hair didn't do it for me. So i have a young so comes out in a little more than a month. Yeah 'cause we're an episode five of wand vision that just finished up so therefore left so like once this is done. It'll be starting right up with falcon and the winter soldier. And then i guess right after that will be low-key probably yeah alright Than the other big trailer unless there are any others you want to touch on is m nights shamlan new film which is gold old and that one comes out in july. I think only in theaters. Yes only in theaters in july. So thanks and night for that. Paul what are you. What are you thinking about since you've been on the show. We haven't really talked about him night yet. So how do you feel about him. I like him night. Shamlan not all of his stuff certainly but i like him night I think that the god. I can't remember what the name is of the of the trilogy. But the the sort of pennsylvania trilogy will it of unbreakable split and glass. I really love those three Especially split split for me is is the pinnacle of the trilogy. I like i have the controversial opinion of liking lady in the water to okay. I understand why people don't like it. But i actually really enjoy lady in the water but see now i. I did not like glass. So okay al. It's not not tear not terrible. But i was like split. I think people were saying okay. He's back he's back in action. He's back at the top. And then i think glass for me was a bit of dud. Have you watched it more than once. I think i maybe watched. I don't know the first half hour again at some point but i have not watched it all the way through again. Okay i would suggest going back and giving another watch all the way through. I liked it more on the second launch. Noca- i'm trying to think. What else has he done. i did. i don't like the village. I don't like avatar. I think i enjoy the happening. But not because it's a good movie but because it's hilarious as as we all do. Yes so that is truly. Just you know comedy comedy classic for me. I think he was trying to be funny honestly. And he can't tell me otherwise. Mark wahlberg against the scientists. Come on do you guys hear about the bees. Everything's a question for mark wahlberg in that. That's how you know he's a scientist How lord but now and that one's also zoe chanel before she was just sort of you now. New girl ray performance. Yeah but i enjoy that one. You know for all the reasons. I like him night. I'm interested in old. I don't know much about it. Obviously beyond what we what we've seen which is just like a beach where where people are just sort of like aging great. That's going to be a great synopsis plot tag You know it's kind of like what if what if the cocoon was. Actually hell leo. That's kind of like what it feels like the now like i'm interested. Why not sure screw it. I'm disappointed with the whole only in theaters thing just because like. It's pretty obvious that we're not going to be back. You know really truly by summer. Yeah you know. Not the way that i think that people would like us to be in so. I think that it's still kind of a bad idea to really force that whole only in theaters thing. 'cause you're just you're continuing to cause more of a problem. You're continuing to make the people who made the decision behind what. Hbo is doing right. Now look more right. You know if you feel that strongly about it just wait if you really feel that strongly about it. Just wait you know. Stop all advertising. You know don't tip your hand anymore. Just stop and just wait Agree how do you feel about old. I think i mean you know. It's a pretty quick trailer. I think it looks fine. I as you mentioned. I i always will watch what he does. I mean he has some bad movies. Some truly bad films. But i like i like lady in the water. I like six cents. I like i really liked split. I thought the visit was pretty. Solid unbreakable is good. I like the village. Or did i say that. No you didn't save you like the village. And then i think all the others are ones. I'm not a fan of but should give after earth a rewatch though. How god you never forget. All about that one yeah. I'm sure. I sure everyone wishes that they ask. Forget about that. But no i. I'll be seeing it. Probably not in theaters. Sorry night. But no. I'll i'll i'm definitely curious. Oh yeah for sure Do you like signs. Oh yeah i yeah. I do like signs. Yeah that's what. I forgot i am. I'm always great with signs until you see the alien. I agree absolutely with them. Only you see the man in the suit up and it looks worse and worse every year. I honestly it's all. It's not too far from almost looking like the scary movie. spoofs like a few more years from it. Visually being the same quality. Yeah all right now. I mean there are some other trailers any others that in particular that that struck you as once. He wanted to discuss her. Oh well you know. Let's talk about the new fast and furious film. You know okay yes. So there is the there's a new promo. There has been a trailer already for it. This one throws in some new footage. So and i know you have some thoughts on the franchise like i at this point. This is the ninth one. They are doing very well financially and their god help me. They are doing well critically most of the time so clearly. They're doing something right. You have to like that. You know purely subjective. I don't think this looks good. I'm sure it's going to do well. I probably will see it. I have not seen hops. I did watch hobson show. I think i watched about half of hobbs. Sean gave up so no i. It's not one i'm like. Oh my god i can't. It's all about family. It's gonna hit me so hard. That's all these movies are bowed as family as they say so it. It looks ridiculous. Obviously i think the cg in the trailer looked brutal building unforgivable. Yeah so i believe game quality yes. I don't think it looks good. But hey i'm shirley in the minority bear. No i So i i love. The meat had soap opera. That is the fast and furious. Brennan and i should say there are definitely ones in this franchise that i do enjoy genuinely. I'm not trying to say it's all bad. It's just that no yeah. We are getting more and more ridiculous and it's like what are we doing here you know. Yeah no for shore so. I absolutely adore in. Its own weird way. Like i don't think that they're all necessarily good. Most of them actually on a lot of levels just aren't but they're the right amount of flake. True just sort of pulp kind of trash entertainment. That that i absolutely enjoy To me it's almost right up there with a maximum overdrive. No or something like that. Where it's ludicrous. And it's just absolutely doing it so sincerely you know like it is leaning so earnestly into the lunacy of its own concept. I think that it does have to end sometime. You know you can only naive the anti so much I think they said that it's gonna end at like twelve or something Okay so we'll see what happens rebuilt after that but plus show paramount plus as was debuted at the at the super bowl as well. Yeah so you know. i'll watch it for sure. I still actually haven't gotten around to hobson. Shaw we should do a bonus show where we just do the entire ranchos sure. Let's let's just take ten hours out of our day and do that you know. Yeah no. I'm i'm in agreement with you know really all you said i and i've talked about it on this show before but like i'm not a car guy. I'm not someone who like sees a car like a cool calm. Like oh my god. This is like the best day my life you know or or you know works on cars. However and maybe it's the the north carolina and me. I don't know i love racing. I love like watching cars listening to motors roar. Like i love that. For example like that's one of the one of the reasons why i love mad max. It's just a car chase. You know it's high octane. As they say. And so that element. I think it actually is beneficial that they're moving further away from the street racing because really there's only so much you can do with one person is going to have the nitro. He's gonna kick ass and it's gonna be you know victory and so i tend to watch these movies just because i enjoy watching racing although i think the more glossy macho element is just kind of there for me. You know i it. You can't really have one without the other most of the time. Now that's fair. You know. I mean if you want like a truly great modern car movie than you're definitely looking more at something i'd say like a baby driver Or even like the very first fast and furious film and maybe even tokyo drift. But beyond that you know. We're getting into ridiculousness. Cg land Aplenty so no i. you know. Apparently they're going to go to space at some point. Let's watch vin diesel. Do donuts with a moon rover. Well yeah that one. That one was just a joy to watch any others. Paul now i mean. I honestly actually didn't watch the super bowl. I only watched bits and pieces now while the super bowl was happening i was watching the little things. That's what i was doing a while with news done. I guess we can do a listener question. So the film buds podcast at g. Mail dot com where you can reach us at also facebook twitter and instagram at film buds. So if you have not followed us there yet please do. You can join the mailing list at the film. Buds dot com very easily. And stay up to date with things. And so yeah please. If you're a new listener or if you have been listening for while please send us any questions. Comments doesn't even have to be about movies. Just send us a a comment so the one we we got it was i think it was. Maybe early last week from this woman was on twitter from tar lucky antarctic says. Do you think we are lowering. Our quality standards for movies and television for example is over saturation of quote unquote good. Tv causing people to lose sense of what a truly great tv show is same goes for movies. Many of your recent reviews have consistently had lackluster. Ratings paul is that the cause. Thanks for the podcast. Paul what do you. What do you in are we are. We lowering our standards or are we just cynics a. It's a great question. There's a lot going on with it. Mis cynic to extent. Yeah i guess a little bit. I guess by certain people standards probably some sort of films. Snob yeah probably but you know. It's something that i care deeply about. I'm passionate about so whatever. Do i think that our standards are low. Worrying kind of yes. I think the issue isn't though oversaturation is certainly a part of it and the fact that you know people are really doing like a time crunch with so many of these movies and it's such a race and so much like a. You've got a big in the first weekend like that is certainly a big part of the issue. I think but. I think that there's more going on with it than than just that But i'll get into that sort of as we keep going. What do you think. I think we kind of are. I mean with like tv. For example. i mean. We're kind of in a i. Guess a golden age. Tv where there's a lot of great tv but at the same time you know. I think there are so many great pieces of tv and they're all at the same standard that many are being lost. And so it's like okay. So what is the defining show of our era or is there not meant to be one you know and i think you know ten years ago. You know we could look at something like true detective and that's always one that sticks with a lot of people but now it's like truly every week. There's a new fantastic show on netflix on amazon. On hulu. but you have to watch it so good and perhaps we're not lowering our standards. But i think we are kind of becoming a little desensitized to quality. You know with movies especially now with covid Lowering our standards were more so just dealing the cards that we have. you know. we can't really do much about the situation and we just to get through it and so on that front notes. The whole marvel vacation of hollywood has heard it a little bit. You know i i. I don't like cinematic universes ninety nine percent of the time. And i wish i think those are starting to hurt it. They're starting to cause people to be less original and more hog tied to previous. Ip's so i. I think in that way. I think we are our standards are going down a little bit. But it's not like it's set. Some you know desperate point or something. No i mean it's not desperate yet I think. I think that. I think that on top of it being part of the reason for the over saturation is that so much of the film. Industry is now so tied up with major conglomerates that are massive publicly traded entities that have to answer to wall street and to the whims of the market and the goal of every business every year that is on the new york stock exchanges to perform preferably better than you did before and so part of the reason for the rat race is also because so much of this is now with not just big business but enormous business you know many many billion dollar year business to the point that like what these companies are actually doing in making money at pales in comparison really to what they're making from the studios that they own. They're doing it because it's another way for them to brand content and and you know extend further into your pocket than they already have. But that's part of the reason for the whole rush but then on top of that you also just have like a real decline in like overall like media literacy. I think from people where people aren't really taught how to critically analyze shows how to dig deeper into them and so. I think that part of the problem is that people are looking at the trappings of what looks like a prestige show right and being like oh. It has good cast. It has good actors. It has these names that i recognize But it's really just doing the bare minimum at a higher quality level. But it's not actually creating like thoughtful new exciting experience. That's why things like us and get out. Standout is because those are truly elevating. The experience introducing new ideas and challenging some themes and doing more. And so you know. I think that there's a big difference between having to parse through the content that you're looking at and be like what's actually good versus. What has the trappings of being good. You know like a movie. That has all the trappings of being good. Is the great gatsby. Movie with leo dicaprio. Great film that movie has all the trappings. You know of lego. It's a great movie but it's not but there are a lot of people who think it is because people are blinded by shiny things. Yeah no and i agree. I think also in terms of over saturation. With i think there is a lot of good content being made right now but you know for example like with true. Detective you know with new shows coming out every single week that are of high quality most of the time. It's like you know back ten years ago. If we got a true detective every single week we would just start to become desensitized and almost take that for granted almost that quality but now it's purely because so many people can make great. Tv shows or have the opportunity to. I should say we're we're losing our sense of like so many shows now they don't really stick with people. It's like oh you have to see the new show show and people may love it but then it's onto the next week because the new season of best is coming out or this whole new cinematic universe tv series is coming out and so it's like people are very quickly losing. The show's set of or the movies that have stuck with them. I think and that would normally make an impact on leave a longer impression. You know and have more longevity whereas now it's just purely like time consumption. You know the or or social media. Buzz now for sure i mean. I think that that's why all those directors when when warner brothers made that change was putting all the films over onto hbo. And all of that. I think the big driving force for the directors was. Oh god where. We're continuing to sort of youtube fi film where everything is streaming. It's all just out there you know if you have access to these platforms and it's just getting dropped out into the ether for someone to maybe eventually see it. You know it very much feels like youtube. And i think that was why all those directors were very much kind of like. Whoa you know pulling up on the reins a little bit. And i think that's why chris nolan was irritated and wanted to need villanova's irritated was because it suddenly does. I think you're right sort of devaluate by just making it so like just available And i think the way that they're trying to compromise is by making it. A limited window wonder woman's going to be gone at a certain point. The little things is going to be gone at a certain point but like for how long is it gonna be gone before it comes back You know these are all other questions yet. Wants theaters open. Are you re committed to releasing things theatrically you know or these things that are. There's lot at play With with what's going on with why people are taking content for granted and also why why standards are lowering to a degree because honestly like this film should have never been made like the little things should have never been made or at least never been made with the cast that it was made with So like i definitely think that. There's a lowering of standards. I think it's ridiculous. Like the mandalorian. Got a golden globe nomination sermon. There was certainly better genre television coming out years ago. That didn't get the kind of praise that the mandalorian is getting. So now you know. I definitely think that we're lowering our standards somewhat. But it's definitely an issue that's tied up to a lot of things and and oversaturation itself is also tied up with a lot of things. It's a as as we would say it's an intersectional issue. Yeah for sure yeah. That's a good question turned. Yeah thank you. Yeah and if anyone has thoughts please feel free to let us know in one of the the mini avenues. That you can paul anything else about the the subject. I mean we could go on for hours about that. That topic but yeah i mean it's it's a it's just a dense one but i think that it'll i think that it's i guess i'll end on a positive note. I think that it is going to change. Because i i think that some of the issue that's going on right now is also just the lack of new influence from from younger voices in newer voices in different voices. And i think that once those people actually finally you know breakthrough in are in positions of power where they're getting to be content creators. I think that we're going to see a resurgence in quality of content. Yeah yeah that's a good point so yeah again. The film butts podcast a g mail dot com is where you can send us those questions so cool. I guess we can end up with our picks of the week. Paul do you have anything or yeah. i'm gonna go with non rainey's black bottom Yeah my wife and i. Each of our movie nights are each of our date nights. This month are going to be black stories. Black entertainment with you know majority black productions cast and things like that And so we started with. Ma rainey's black bottom which is based on a play Viola davis it's chadwick boseman last performance. Great movie really really enjoyed it very much. You know it definitely still feels like a play But i think that it does a great job of adapting its material I think it hits. You know really nicely with a lot of themes of today about you know the exploitation of black entertainment and things like that and it's a it's a tremendous set of performances from everyone involved and i i very much enjoyed movie and i think that it's It's worth a watch. If you have a netflix subscription cool what about you. What's your pick of the week. I got a couple of quick things. So i re watched lars and the real girl with rang gosling. Okay good and that. I i really enjoy it. It's very odd. But it's very earnest and quite funny rank. I think ryan gosling is is quite good. You know he kinda has that people give him crap for kind of having that effortless style but i think in this he really makes that character what it is and he really carries it and so if you wanna very earnest sweet quirky film. It's worth watch. And then i have started watching unbreakable kimmy schmidt as well on net flex which i watched when it first came out the first couple of episodes but i never kept up with it. I season two now. I like it. I in terms of tina phase work. I think thirty rock is far better. This show it. It has a lot going for it. But i think it does have some lesser lesser parts in lesser writing. I think a lot of the time but I i think titus burgas is amazing. In it i mean ellie. Kemper is always great. Jane crook hausky. She is essentially playing the character. She played in thirty rock. And that's kind of a good and bad thing it does feel like it's just that character but out of thirty rock but no it's it is. It is quite funny at times and it's it does have that tina fey genius in it. And so yeah. I keep up with it and it's been a a fun time. And then lastly i've been watching this iraq war documentary series called marine recon. And it's possible when it was on tv. It had a different name. But it's it's on amazon prime now and it's just about this marine recon unit which are essentially the the higher level marine infantry in in the military going about their daily lives in iraq having to do you know traffic stops and you know security inspections and and all that and so obviously that the the audience for that is a bit niche. You know it's not for everybody but if you enjoy that kind of thing it's it's worth watch interesting now. I'll also throw wanda vision. Also if you haven't gotten into it's it's definitely still it's getting better for me every every episode seven here on gun into it. Yeah definitely jump into it. That's another thing that i've been pretty hooked on. I'm catching it every week. So yeah and yeah. I think up. That might be about it. Paul anything else. You wanna mention man about anything in the world. No you know. Keep safe you know. I can't warn any of you off if you've gone to super bowl parties but if you have gone to super bowl parties you know try and find out you know if if anyone has like showing symptoms shortly thereafter so you can quarantine if you need to you know pre one. It's but it's it's still going to continue to be continued effort from everyone. Cheap watching stuff. Sure keep making stuff you know as always do whatever it is. That's making you happy and keep doing it because it certainly is still a long ride. I mean it's only february folks. Yeah yeah now. Next week paul. I mean you you've been looking ahead so you wanna say what what we're going to be doing next week. I guess we've kind of establish something haven't we. Yeah so next week. We're going to have gone nick. Delgadio hopefully He's a friend of mine. He's a film critic He and i went to college together. We roommates. I actually may have met him. Yeah i think you did as well okay. So he's a great guy and he. He writes for a few different publications For film and tv criticism. He's a great guy great energy and he recently did the sundance film festival digitally. And so we're going to be doing judas. And the black messiah. Which is an upcoming film. Starring daniel colonia and keith stanfield. And it's about the co intel pro operation that led to the assassination of fred hampton of the heads of the black panther party in illinois. And we're going to hopefully have nick on and it'll be a three way chat from us and it'll be a good time. Hopefully he's a great energy. he's feisty so it'll be fun sweet. Yeah i'm looking forward to it and again you stay. Updated on on social media and at the film buds dot com for all the the details behind the scenes. Looks you know all that fun stuff.

Mike Mike von now dangers of doing a cold open. But every time like I think that we're on. There's always that have second beat where there's another sportscenter center, but I guess it wasn't listening. Happy post-oscar Monday. Everybody. Doing. Billy didn't watch the Oscars. Billy fixer too pretentious is like a public shaming of me because I'm not embarrassed by that no east a lot of people feel that way. I didn't say up for the whole Oscars. But you think it's too pretentious. I know. It's too pretentious. I was watching amazing race season nine up ten and eleven yesterday. I didn't know that. You're an amazing to go back to the beginning. Have you watched night fight yet? I saw part of one episode one day when I was visiting my grandmother, and I had it on in the background. I was paying more attention to her than the show. But it seemed like an insane show because there was six people in medieval armor, fighting each other in like a wooden it almost look like where you would keep like like cattle like I don't even know how to describe the fence that was around them. And it's hosted by Christian the wrestler, and they were all fighting each other at the same time, I'm assuming they explained the rules of what was going on is the range. No because it was like indoors. And there's a crowd. I think but the six knights fighting each other at the same damn time. Yeah. And again, I I had it onto the background and the volume was really low. So I'm sure they explained the rules, but it just seemed like insanity because there's like again like six or however, many Betsy. Six people fighting all the same time. Yeah. Medieval weapons. Yeah. I mean, they have armouring gear on there. They have to be blunted or something because there's no way that they were hitting each other with what looked like axes at one point. And like you see one guy standing over the other guy, and he's like hitting them in the head with like a stick of some kind. And it's I mean he's wearing a helmet. But again, these are weapons like what if this armor fails? So he's hitting him in the head. And I'm like, okay, fine. Like, I guess he's dead or fake dead or whatever it is that the rules are because they have their faces. And then it turns red. So I don't know if they get eliminated. On the battlefield people assigning. Oh, he's out. He's out. But there's not someone standing in the middle because it'd be dangerous. And then as that's going on, you're like, okay. Wow. This guy has the upper hand someone comes behind images hits him in the ribs with like a weapon. So to give you a full report of what's going on on that show. I'll watch it with volume, but it seems insane for five minutes. I've seen described because it seems like an all out fight to the death between six people dresses nights. I thought it's one thing because you've kind of seen this show or one against one and its combat and you test the sort of you test, the quality of your weapons sort of like that sword show that you like to fire, you know, the name on everybody knows. It's called fortunate fire. It's a big hit. But it is this forged in fire, but also combat competition where you also need a harness you're fighting skills. I don't know what's going on. Again. I haven't watched the show with volume, but I don't really know what's going on. It seems like forged and fire was a success. So then. They branched off and they had forged in fire knife or death where you come in. And it's hosted by Goldberg and you come in. And they that you have to like it's an obstacle course with a weapon that you've brought in or any made are they going with wrestlers? I don't know. That's the thing. And I guess that was a successful. They said, you know, what let's go after Christian from wrestling, which they use his real name. But then they put Christian like in the middle again parentheses Jay Christian Russell, and they call him Christian, even though they say his actual couldn't have been the first guy that went after right? There's so many bigger names edge. Right. It probably went after edge to after Christian. But as Christian, well, you didn't watch about the sound. Okay. We need a full report that the host. And then they have like two people on the sides that are like the experts on the weapon. Honey, become an expert. I guess medieval times times got man. There's experts on everything right now. Like if you wanted to have a race of dung beetles. I'm sure you could find experts to have a panel. All right. So watch this show we end up on this because you you said the Oscars to pretentious and I wanted to. But I do know that the things that you do like and night fight might actually be one of those things. So we need a full report this week. I think it airs on the same day as the mass singer. So that's going to be a. Yeah, that's a no go then because this week is finale for massing, and I checked it out early to make sure I had a record it on my DVR just in case, and it's two hours this week. So I'm assuming we're going to have a lot of performances because there's only three people left. You know, what what's probably gonna happen? Chris probably going to get some of the eliminated people performing again. Yeah. I think they'll probably do. They do a mass like think. I think they'll do it everyone will perform and then someone will be eliminated in the first hour and then the two finally performed and then we'll crown champion. How great is this for we you've alleged that spoiler alert t pain is monster. We know who all three lower left if you really wanna know. So I think I heard you say that you wanna see monster on tour. Fantasy much onto her and not t pain monster has the unfair upper hand because they're the only one that he's the only one that dresses up with the theme of the song monsters. Probably I would imagine the monsters win, even though I think monsters the most how does somebody is this like Gladys Knight? You the bees gonna win? I think the beasts gonna win. How does somebody win is a fan votes studio people that are in the arena recorded all this so early there like we live. We'll just have people don't even know if it's real voting. They just are like and the votes are in like, they don't even show people loading. They don't ever fake. I'm just saying they all it's always the who wants to be a millionaire voting was faecal. So oh, you mean with the audience? All the audience. How could they know so much that audience like I'd imagine that the audience just stumbles in like they're walking around Universal Studios or whatever wherever they film it. And they just like, oh, we have seats today for who wants to be a millionaire. And it's like, oh, they know about sixteenth century league musically. Get out of here. I don't think they know and the phone a friend things a little hard like someone just sitting around like so you you're expecting the call like supporting these months in advance. So and you can't do who wants to be a millionaire in today's age because no one answers are phone nowadays. That'd be a number that nobody recognizes and you get the call immediately rejected. It should be texted friend have you ever met anybody? That was like I was one time a friend and I had to sit around my phone for an hour. Now, you don't, but I've also never met anybody. That was a contestant nobody knows the friend. What he's talking, you know, a friend from that's ever been a friend on. I don't know anybody that's ever been associated with who wants to be a millionaire. She wouldn't know a friend either telling you what? What are you saying the friends not a real skeptical has there ever been a situation which somebody did not answer the phone because then I would xactly they always answer. I mean, they added this show together like a live show. But that would be a good moment. Phone a friend. Sorry. They're doing the peleton bike right now. They can't get back to you. At this moment. I'm onto who wants to be a millionaire few years too late. But I'm on. I think it's still alive. Took you twenty years. It's still in syndication right now because they've had a lot of host. I think Terry crews was a host ones, I think it's a it's an honor to be. Era. No, she's done Cedric the entertainer did it for a little bit. He's done. I think it's like that host that he's like a reality show host. I don't think it's Mark Wahlberg. I was gonna guess Mark. All I don't think it's more Walberg. But it might be. I'm actually the opposite of Billy. I'm really into the Oscars. And I have no idea why? Because I haven't seen any of the movies. I just like Sunday yesterday. It hit me at some point. I'm like, oh, the Oscars, and it just makes a big night. Like, I don't know why I haven't seen any movies. I don't care about art design. And you know, I saw that they have sound editing and sound mixing two different awards. Chris Harrison quotas. Chris Harrison, also do he does the bachelor. Okay. So he's the host now who which one is Mark Wahlberg because he looks like what I thought Mark Wahlberg looks like wasn't Mark Wahlberg, the host of temptation island. Look, I got to tell you something about time taken island. It's back. I don't know if you're wearing back again. Yeah. It's like on USA or something. No. I'm telling the truth. It's back, and it is I saw the end of. Episode like how the episode for lack of a better term climaxes, and it is like on sex. I feel so gross watching it because they picked I don't know how the original one was. But this one they pick four couples, and they split up the men and the men are in a house in the women are in a house, and then they just have like people of the opposite sex like also living in those houses with them like straight up trying to force these couples to cheat on each other and break up, and then they go to like imagine like survivor tribal council, they take them separate. So like, they take the four women. And then they take the four men, and they show the women like a video, and then you could either watch the video with the group of women or you could watch the video on an ipad with headphones on by yourself. And they show you like out of context. Clips of what your spouse has been up to that completely out of context. Well, they show you like the most intimate moments. And then the like stop before something either happens or doesn't happen. And then they. You like wondering like did. My spouse cheat on me or not like he's like, I'm so in love, and you don't know if it's with my wife, your weight, you again, I didn't watch the whole episode, but I just caught the end of one, and I felt so bad watching them like this is the worst thing. I think on television like they're intentionally trying to ruin four relationship. I want to have what is it sex or salad does he want sex the worst part of that? But so that I saw was there. It was like they showed one of the women like the guy cheating on her like they showed the like grainy like black light video from the room, always black light. But here's the thing. She was the only person of all of them. She's the only person that's like I don't wanna watch with the group. I wanna watch it alone. So like, they'd take the ipad off the stand that it's on and they go, and they handed to her to watch. And then they put in like air pods for her to listen to it and she had the ipad right in front of her and this one this seems like the weakest of all the couples like they knew that they're cheating on each other. So this one knows what's going on. So they. Give her the ipad edgy closes her eyes. And she only hears the sound of what they're saying doesn't look. So then Mark Wahlberg, which may or may not be Mark Walters. So I think it is brought Wilbert bash Mark Wahlberg, the not the actor Mark Wahlberg host Mark Wahlberg. So Mark Wahlberg if it's still him then yet is him. So Mark Wahlberg then looks at her like she finishes, and then like watching the video finishes watching the video with her again with her eyes closed only listening to the sound where they're talking to each other. And then he's like, oh, well, I noticed that you had your eyes close like you were looking for answers. But you closed your eyes you're gonna pry them open. No the oh. But she's like, oh, you know. I don't know what situation that they was in when that conversation was being had. And he's like, well, that's because you close your eyes. You coulda had answers. If you want to I don't want to be pressed on this. I don't want to be pressed on this. And it's like thank God. She didn't watch it. But it's like, dude, you know, your your spouse is cheating on you. And like. Like, they straight up showed the video to her of him cheating on her and she chose the closers like it could have been anything. They could have been eating. And it's like if you would open your eyes, you would've known they weren't eating. That's all is a terrible show. Like, if you have a soul, that's not different. Mark wahlberg. You guys got to clarify that we did this. Host walberg. I'm like why he's really taken attorney hosting shows. What is he doing hosting temptation, I was like this not even work anymore? So I read you way off. So the Oscars are too pretentious took knowledge truth brought to you by Geico. Truth. You will certainly send any text about your supervisor to your supervisor. What's Janet's fangs? Did she lose that? With a weed whacker? Oh and Sint, wait. No, no, no, no, no truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Janet, I think my phone was hacked or something. Gogo fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. I think it was that pretentious this year. There were no hose by too pretentious. Do you mean the the acceptances because Chris code has got a bone to pick with lady Gaga? Well, I mean, it's I don't want to go on a whole tangent against there. But it's just like every time I see her an award show. She's so even in the red carpet like any moment, she gets in front of a Mike. She's just so overwhelmed and moved by how she's so grateful, and she's so happy, and it's just like I got only do this once or twice a year. You do it seventeen times. This is where things turned for Anne Hathaway and Hathaway was America's sweetheart and everybody got sick of an hat all action. Yeah. To and then when she's on stage with Bradley Cooper, he's singing I love that. Trick is electric. She's looking at him. It's he singing it's his part of the song. And she's just like, she's like clutching herself. I mean, how could you not? But how could you not Chris is like a big deal though? I would imagine that this is an emotional time. She's eight she's a musician. She had never really reacted quite this way. She's really turned it on. I don't know if it's because of Hollywood and she's just turning on the drama aspect of her. I mean, this was her going outside of her norm outside of a comfort zone. And I know she's only really one wards for like the the song right, which is sort of her lane. But it's a big deal for all the work that she put it. It was a big deal at the Golden Globes. It was a big Grammy's. And then it's just like on the red carpet last night every single time like just pick your spots. So what he wanted to go to the Golden Globes and say, I don't care about. You wanted to act like she's been there before she never been there before the Oscars. Don't be so over the top. And I really don't want this to turn into this all Christmas ripping it's just like Judas because you are. I'm looking I'm looking up her Wiki pedia awards. She's been nominated for five hundred seventy four wars. I've kinda so you've been win two hundred forty eight awards at a five seventy four one winning and award kind of does get old. She's one how many two hundred forty eight awards. I mean, come on. Where's all sizable? I would've thought last night was her first award show ever. She was so moved so excited. I loved her dress my big takeaway from the Oscars. Besides that was Paul Rudd. Looks fantastic. He's dying his hair. He said how he's dying his hair, you can tell you can tell by the eyebrows. That's the first time I ever thought Paul Rudd is is hair. He I younger than when you've been clueless. He looks younger. He does. I think he's always sort of looked thirty five years old. And he's just maintained that because he looked older when he was in like Romeo, William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and clueless, by the way, what a wonderful, but weird confusing love story share and her former step brother had and clueless. Try to wrap your mind around that one. I'm rooting for the next. Stepbrother Mantech relationship is very weird. I looked it up. He's forty nine. Now, he was twenty six when he did clueless. Really? Yeah. So he kind of looked like he was in his mid thirties when he did clueless. And he's just maintained that the entire time. However, this is the first time I thought he was using performance enhancers because his hair was absolutely darker than his eyebrows. So first time I was ever like man, Paul, right? Okay. Feeling giving into the pressures of Hollywood. Now, ROY what were your take on the Oscars? It was fine. Yeah. Pull up his time line. Let's find out. What ROY really thought? I have a take by the way. Here we go. All right. So everybody is is not happy with Remmy Mallaig. I guess because Rummy Malik was pretend singing and Bradley Cooper was actually singing. Right. So they're not thrilled. Because I guess they said that Bradley Cooper was actually doing stuff. I mean, there were both acting. Well, no, here's the thing. Remmy was acting more because he was acting like he was singing, and he was acting like he was playing an instrument. It's an acting awards music award. If it was the Grammy's. Maybe you could honor Bradley Cooper for playing and singing, but it's an acting award Remmy Malik was doing more acting than Bradley Cooper, ROY Bradley Cooper prepared for the role Billy yet. But his role is Grammy Malik prepared yet. By look thinking, he practices lip synching. I pretending to sing he's an actor. He's acting like he's singing in a movie where he's acting like a person Bradley Cooper prepared for the role, but ROY the role in this movie is Freddie Mercury. Ain't nobody in the world. That sounds like, Freddie. Mercury. I'm not gonna go to a Queen movie. And here's some worse vocals than I would've. If I actually heard the music, I want to hear, Freddie, mercury's vocals. That's what you need to tell the story. I can't watch Ramaema. I'm not going to buy Remmy Malik real voice fronting for Queen any any of us could have sing could've sung those Bradley Cooper lyrics on the Eddie Vedder voice. It's not that tune is something it's not an award our city routes and ward for acting, and if you're singing, you're not acting like you're singing Billy's using it's a musical. I mean what what's a musical. Is this movie's amused? No. Yeah. But if you're going to be best actor, you know act act like you're semi late. I was really moved by Bradley Cooper singing. I mean, would it be the hand that he had going the is when he looks up like a puppy dog. You just melt the beard the beard. The finally dude what he stood up and took the mic stand and sort of like like it's a slow song. So it didn't fully slam it down. But there was a little infinite. It was like a little sexy like put down on the Mike. And then he just sat right next to lady Gaga, who's playing the piano, and they just looked at each other as like kiss, please. I I thought they were going to put him mean the movie's over I if I'm as girlfriend, fiance, wife, whatever Bill listened, Bradley, I the movies over with this pretending to be in love. What's going on here? His on a related note Lambert in his performance of the Queen songs, tell C look you want you want Remmy Malik to go up there and sing, but Adam Lambert, who's an actual singer. You're like this guy, Freddie. Mercury aren't buying this. That's not cool there. Oh, it doesn't matter. If he's very murky, and he will. Who do you want to hire the sound like, Freddie, Mercury somebody who actually has talent? Okay. But can they act Egli Lambis? If you say, so this can't that's why they went Paul Rogers. That's why they went Adam Lambert to replace him because you can actually replace him. You gotta go totally different. Greg roy? Maybe you didn't enjoy it. But you can't say he's not talented. I mean, he was saying he plays in American idol. They don't just give those places away unless you're saying let you slide on hating lady Gaga over to don't don't. I'm not hating on her singing. I'm just like enough what the emotion and overwhelmed with gratitude. He's amongst your monster. Nah. I'm not a monster. I'm just saying don't hate him somebody, Greg, Greg. What do you think of my theory that what Remmy Malik did as an actor was more impressive than what Bradley Cooper did because he pretended and he acted like he was singing and playing the piano where Bradley Cooper actually saying? I think they were both great. In fact, I never go to the movie theater as you guys know, but of seen both of those movies just in the past few days, really at home. Yeah. And I thought they were both great Bradley Cooper his. Voices. You know, you can't fake voice. Right. I mean, he he kind of fake the boys. I think you'd look good voice. He patterned his voice against him to sound just like Sam Elliott. So yeah, he did fake the voice. I think he's got a good voice. He talking to the mic, please. What am I doing merger talking a little bit away from the mic? But it's all right. I'm trying to. I'm doubling the the better, Scott stapp. You know, the a lot of people can sound better than they actually which is fine. Just fine. Well, that's what the guy who replaced, Freddie. Mercury in Queen. He's very generic to me. He's a little too theatrical. And not the Freddie Mercury wasn't talking about Adam Lambert there that opened the show with them. I I don't think I think he's very generic Neely. Oh, you haven't hit him. He you haven't heard him hit the high notes. You didn't watch any of his chase on American idol season. Was he he deserved every bit of the glory that he got I watched them last night. And it was okay. We'll come people out of their seats. How your bar? Dem was frigging loving it. Well, I think people got out of the seats as a tribute to Freddie, Mercury to be on. I didn't know this so Adam Lambert tors with Queen. He's the replacement. Yeah, they're actually playing been to her own for a while. I was the guy they didn't know last night was like a special thing. I think they're planning to be and t center in August, which by the way, great job saying yesterday several years ago because that is a quality spot Adam Lambert's golfer himself right now and the time that he kind of needs it now that's not Queen. I mean, that's not right raised. It is queens not pretty murky when you have a fake lead singer. You can't go you still want wanna sing Queen songs out loud. And whether it's Paul Rogers who they Paul Rogers. I think from bad company, right Iraq, he toured with Queen for a longtime totally different voice than, Freddie. Mercury. And I'm Lambert has more of an arena rock theatrical number. Nobody's going to be talking about the greatest vocalists and rock music is story. I well our you'll. Yeah. But you know, it'd be like, you know, the you can't tour as Herman's hermits if you don't have Peter noone. You know what I'm saying? Of course, I everyone knows no idea who were the journey journey who are the other. Queen members example. I'd be annoyed. If I was in Queen all this time, and then his Adam Lambert comes along, and it's Queen and Adam Lambert who was my name guitars, Brian. I'm actually more with ROY. Now that I hear that Adam Lambert's touring with them. I'm less impressed with last night performance. I don't know what's happening thought. It was like a once in a lifetime thought, it was just a cool one time thing choice. This is fine. But now that I'm hearing he's the permanent replacement. I'm like, I wouldn't go see a Queen. It sounds like ROY wants Queen with Bradley Cooper, Tori. I mean, hey, that'd be interesting donlevatar. I've been watching this show about swords where they make swords out of like junkyard material on the history channel, I'm hoping there's some new episodes of that. I could see on demand. That would be nice forged in fire. It's called stugatz. They give you like a random thing, and you have three hours, and you need to forge them piece of metal. Whether it's like a spring from a truck just a random piece of tractor. And you need to get that. Into like part of a blade that they give you. So then after that the eliminate the person that hasn't done that the best is four people when you start and then the next Brown you need to give it a handle. And then the eliminate someone from there, and then after five days, you have three tests, and they come back, and it's more like strength tests and stuff, and then there they choose the fortune five champion ten thousand dollars. This is our show with stugatz on the ticket guys. I don't know if I'm gonna make the playoffs. We were having this discussion that they were probably not good enough. To make any noise in the playoffs. But they were certainly good enough to make the playoffs because their whole culture is that they try and now they're all the way in tenth in the Eastern Conference. Orlando is playing really well. I don't know if you've seen Orlando lately. And why would you honestly, but they've won eight of their last ten I read sorry. I'm bleep messing up on the name. But I saw on Twitter that they have the best point differential in the league in February amino Hassen ESPN NBA front office insider, Dan, lebatardshow correspondent and Greg Cody Miami Herald columnist for several years, I pose a question to you the heater not gonna make the playoffs. Are they? Here's the problem. They're not good at not making the playoffs. They're really good at somehow squeaking by and when you look at the bottom of the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Double orlando. Orlando's in ninth right now playing really well. Hornets are an eighth they're probably gonna make the plus pistons are actually playing really well to Detroit L of the big those massive gut punch the other night to lose at home like that. But I I've seen it too many times it just it's just the amount of grit, and and and it stinks because it's not in the best interest. Be honest. What what does a playoff berth do for the Miami Heat right now gives us a chance to have one last Wade moment in the play offs? I would like some clarity on this. Wade thing though. Because as as it stands right now, I do have an end date on this whole Dwayne Wade experience, and I want to purchase tickets to that. Right. But I don't wanna purchase tickets to that last regular season game. If it's not indeed going to be his last game with the Miami Heat. It's kind of confusing you guys with me on this. What did they have weighed in that game to get into the play offs? What are you root for or owner? This is easy. You rupe? With at that point you root for the playoffs because then you know, game four is probably going to be the last one get then not taking anybody to six a lot more expensive ticket. But everything that you're saying right now, I think the heat aren't capable of getting swept or excuse me. They're incapable of getting swept the dental sleep. The win won't like two years ago against Philly in the play. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That win that game for that. Final game at home, the fun one at home also said it before I said it a million times look at those box scores Miami. He would've won that series. If it would just first halves. What would we prefer though? Would we prefer way to have the first half? He's had which has been a good one above for what we expect that he's been playing well and then not make the playoffs. Or would. We rather have maybe, you know, his legs get a little tired. And he's not what he was in the first half. But a couple of other guys step up and we make the playoffs. I prefer that. Because then we could get to the playoffs. And then he could have that one final game. We're sixty games or so. It was a fine. He's putting together six year campaign twenty three more games. He's he's he's he's dude. It's crazy because I talked to most our weekend. And I I asked him. I said dude, you're playing a lot better than people. You know, it's not like Dirk where it looks painful out there. Yeah. A lot of people fought between what's just wash. Can you can play another year? I'm you know, you look Vince Carter, and there's so many people surprised he was good when he was with Miami. He didn't look when he was with Cleveland, nobody paid attention when he was in Lyon difference. I mean, we've made it into that first game. Right. The first game back where he gets some moments affiliate games. Crazy. He won a playoff game for them with the with the steel and then the dunk on the other end. But ultimately, the the attention span of the basketball public ended when him and LeBron didn't really quite work on Cleveland. Right. And so you're right. He was solid the last habit of season last year. And he's been really I mean, he's been good enough where I live. Who said to him. Do you can keep playing and he said, it's just the joy, isn't there? Like it used to be. It's there some nights. But it's not on a consistent. I'm here in good. Probably. I don't know. Maybe that's what he means. Great Dwayne for what this is worth. And and I think it's pretty interesting. He's got the second highest scoring average of any guy off the bench playing that few minutes. In other words, you know. And that's that means something I mean, it's a little bit of the year campaign. Right. I mean, who he's not the favourite who who who Jeff slaughtered ahead of well, Lou Williams at this point. It's going to be named after him some more, right? You've got what's my man up in Brooklyn, Spencer Dinwiddie, he's been hurt. But when he played I mean, some people argued at some point if there was going to be an all star from Brooklyn, would it be Dinwiddie. Or would it be Russell? That's how it comes off the bench. But then when he comes out the bench, so but he he's playing tremendously in Denver Monty Morris. He's played really. Well. Well for advantage. I mean, there's look Wade's name is not a shocker if you through it with those guys they've all had very solid campaigns. But so is he honestly after the career he's head? Isn't it almost an insult for a guy like way to win six men? No. I think it'd be so cool. It'd be such a cool achievement because everyone was pointing in San forgot about him. Yeah. People are surprised when they say, hey, you could still play actually be a really cool to ward right Steph? Curry said that right after they lost in Golden State, South Korea said he has a few years left in the tank. He's actually he's aged a lot more gracefully than I could have imagined considering his style at his peak and the physical pounding. That's why when I look at it. And I know Russell Westbrook's an unprecedented athlete, but I look at him. I'm like that contracts. Not gonna look good towards the tail and you can't sustain that. Especially Russell a lot like Dwayne Wade attack the rim, and now his games changed a little bit. He's not taking the same sort of pounding that used to take. But his shot is. I mean this year's historically bad. Russell Westbrook's because. I wonder if Wade would have playing with the Brandon Miami did that change him in a way that it made him adaptive playing basketball with the having a ball in his hands in a way that Russell Westbrook up until this point has yet to have to make that adjustment. But in those those series, they took a crazy toll on twain. Well, remember, I mean, one of the iconic. Dwayne Wade moments is actually images burned in my mind is after winning that series against San Antonio in which he absolutely helped win that game with his mid range. Game a skill that people were already starting to discount, and San Antonio was sort of daring pop was daring LeBron and Dwayne Wade bury those mid-range shots, and they did and the image that I remember mostly from the the celebration was Wayne we pouring champagne on his knee. Remember how many times he had to get his needs rain in those moments. It he actually hasn't been battling injuries quite that bad. He has an also had the same sort of minute allotment, but considering where he was in those playoff series looking at how is. He had get rained every series. It seemed like it's amazing that he's playing this. Well off bench argue that Miami probably didn't do as good a job that filling out that roster as public could especially when you look at how well they've done. It finding talent we always thought about them diamonds in the rough into as good a job in those years the big three years. Yeah. In a way, when they added battle way about those reality shows are diamond rayon was a good piece towards he was here. A very small part of the run. I'm talking about. If you think about what the warriors the biggest difference. I think within the warriors and the and the heat beyond the the the warriors have some more complimentary salad plate towards one another. Whereas the heat after figured out. The biggest thing is if you think about the Jordan bells the practice macaws the few years ago. It was a holiday just in. You're holding these guys up as good examples in comparison to the heat. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, nor overweight Allen. No. But see over Mike, you're missing the point where the one shoe three Mike Miller who is so expensive. They had to waive him that the Ray Allen who. Yes was big. But again homegrown guys you're talking. I'm talking about guy Tyler Johnson young enough to eat up the middle minutes when you just need someone energy, go out. They're not rail. And we'll me out a go hit some shots. And then we'll be back off the court who was Dwayne Wade's backup at two guard. Especially like the first half of that big three run. Let me check it out. Mario. Out of position out of position now, and and wealth that they have on off the bench. But Jones it wouldn't. There was nobody would never play. It was no young energy guy out there. And when you think about the stress that you're talking about Wade having a drain his knee of LeBron being tired of having to be he was energy for crying out energy guy for crying out loud him. And and I guess Bergman. They're young guy was Terrell Harris backing up Dwayne Wade. Yeah. No, it was an unfair pounding that. So that's my point. My point is Golden State probably better than anybody in a long time. Maybe other than San Antonio did a great job of we're gonna find young guys who say look, I don't care about. What you can't do. What are the things you can do? And then we're gonna use them. And then we're gonna play you actual minutes. It's not something. Like, all right. We're forty now. Guys, going those guys may rotation minutes and it helps but what for championship four finals in a row in two championships. How much better could they have done with a couple of different pieces for championships, really? Just coming over. Coming up in the next segment, I've been texting with a an enraged, Dan lebatard, he is furious with one Greg Cody legend that furious with Greg Cody who once again put on his journalism hat and put his own needs and selfish. Desires ahead of the shows. We'll talk about that next donlevatar d-. I was that local enough for you. That was local that was baseball. I feel like we lost everyone in our on for Mike. Right. My bike where Where'd might go anyone. Stugatz. There's nobody producing the show right now. Billy, ROY Mike and Chris all went to go get a drink. They're all hammered by the Cleveland or bar. They're drinking one of those giant drinks that that has beers in it upside down this is our show with stugatz on the ticket. So I got a call yesterday from Dan lebatardshow, and I've been following this story oh weekend. Greg, cody. Who won an internal award scoop of the year who's already revealed way too much about Dan and his personal life. And the big podcast network announcement scoops, Cody always seems to be on the Dan laboratory beat which is weird because he's paid by ESPN dolphin puts us in terrible positions. I got a text from Greg over the weekend. Asking me if hey the herald wants me to write something on Dan, they already they've put you on this day and laboratory beat because this gets clicks erect. They found this out. I don't deny that. So Greg as me who I had nothing to do with your to conversation. I helped record a few things here or there. But terms of the actual making of the conversation. I didn't have much of anything to do with. That's not true. I felt a screen shot that Chris posted it said special things your name was on the list. Roy's name was on the list. Chris. His name was on the. Billy's was the last name on the list gonna EMMY Allison's name was misspelled. Oh, so we really shouldn't have been thanked. Honestly, our participation on show, minimal. I should have been think even watch the clips. No, I haven't even watched show yesterday. I was traveling anyways. Oh, I watched it antastic. They wanna blame. We also we all know you watch it. So I got a text from Greg. Hey, I need to write this thing on the other conversation. I'm like, I'm not really comfortable giving authorization for that. Because I'm not the producer on the project reach out to the producer, Sean or or reach out to Dan. But make sure you get the permission. And then I sent Greg the link saying like if you can get the authorisation, here's a direct link to a and he did reach out to the producer, Sean, Dan. And he got permission on certain grounds spoke to both of them. And they were okay. With me seeing the the full episode in advance in order that I could be more informed. When preview it in what I wrote, but the but their work conditions. There were no specific conditions. That were put on me. There was a conversation that I had with Dan yesterday in which Dan specifically outlined a conversation. He had with you where he said Greg don't be giving away the entire episode giveaway one or two blurbs and your response to that was Dan what? Am I an idiot? To article being out in advance of this episode. And it's the entire episode in bullet points, everything is giving away fourteen bullet points, it's the entire. It's a breakdown of the entirely scoops the entire thing. You don't have to watch the other conversation with Darna. That's true. And then afterwards when called on it. He goes, I'm just wedding the appetite, and I'm like, do, you know wedding. The appetite means that's not giving away. Every single interesting thing in it bull. The length of time the length of time the length of time, it would have taken a reader to read what I wrote was maybe a minute minute and a half, you think that anything I could write in a minute anything. You can read in a minute is going to supersede and replace a half hour in-depth. Yes. Yes. I really yes. I mean, they've made it very easy for me to read it in a minute. Actually. That's what articles are about with things you read, you, can you can summarize an entire show in one article to Greg's point you can't summarize a thirty minute episode in a minute. He did. I did point fashion. Greg's also journalist I mean, Greg is the scoop Craig's going to go with the scoop. You know what I mean you don't trust. Greg. Don't give them the entire thing. Give them what you want to put out there. Two sides. Every story. We'll get Greg side right now what I can tell you is Dan is once again furious with Greg Cody, the journalist not and Greg Cody, the friend. He he finds this as a betrayal. I can't tell you that when he called me yesterday at about seven AM, California time, I think he's in Kelly. He was angry at me than I've ever heard over angrier than the announcement of engagement angrier than that angrier than the podcast announcement angrier than you revealing to our audience we were changing day parts way back in the day. So this is now in that grew and anybody who who knows Dan, very well knows that he can be pretty emotional. And when he's angry at you, you hear it in his voice, and he lets you know it, and he let me know it and I made it right quickly. For two reasons personal and professional personally, if a friend of mine is that angry at me for something. I wanna make it right professionally. I did feel obliged because Dan and ESPN had had given me access than I otherwise wouldn't have had if I hadn't asked to see the thing. And so if if they felt that I betrayed them by using too much information to too many details, I was happy to to immediately right through and Dan even asked me to delete a tweet unwritten with a link to the call, and which I never do. I don't anybody outline. What exactly did you do to? To cater to Dan's needs yesterday, as he became very upset with I worked with our online people and basically went through the column and deleted the detail. I said, you know, some of the things you'll hear Dan talk about are, you know, an classic car collection semi colon. The day is daughter got married semi colon. But no detail. Okay. Nothing about those things just kind of wedding the appetite. Yeah. It's okay. I mean, it was an honest. Dan will come to realize. It was an honest misunderstanding. I thought what I wrote was heading. Okay. All right. Well, you set aside. I believe Greg when he says he's sorry. I I the the full on detail when when Dan says he you guys specifically I had a conversation about maybe one or two nuggets from the episode. I'm gonna I'm gonna look up our text exchange because I don't remember him being that specific about what I should or shouldn't do. Play. I'm strong. I'm just staggered that. This was the thing that force. Greg apologize and not I'm giving away your engagement to the world before before not because Dan might be upset because Valerie might be of set. You magilla worth the squeeze Greg. That's your all-time highest click article, right? It was pretty good. It made my year. I think it had like a quarter of a million page. That thing at the herald not that we don't want to give away. My most. So that is so now he's on the beat and Greg Cody will stop at nothing to get these clicks. I hope it was worth it. Greg's here and Dan's not today. Just like the idea Greg wearing a trenchcoat the hat, and it just hanging around the studio waiting to hear tidbits write them down in the Nova. I you know, I can't turn it off the fact that I write for the Miami Herald because I walked through the door. I mean there, you know, there are times, but might will back me up on this. I generally. I don't know he followed proper protocol. And I didn't give I didn't give full permission because I wasn't comfortable doing it. It's the first time we've had one of those things. I appreciate him doing it this time, I guess he is learning a little bit, Greg. Can you imagine if you had? Yeah. There should be fine. Right. Would have been in deep would have been in deep. Honestly, I gave him the Lincoln. Then I was like wait is that way. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. I'm not comfortable doing exactly what I just did. And Sean also, by the way, gave me permission to excerpt. A couple of thirty second videos from it. So it's not like, I went, you know, guerrilla tactics. And and did all this on my own, you know, but I I respected if Dan thought I gave too many details and too much information that I tried to make it right now after it aired I went through it in and use some of those details and wrote a review of the first episode. And and so if people go online to what I wrote, they will you're plugging the article. Now in hindsight. Can you see now that what you originally did was kind of a review and not a wedding of the appetite like do you like Freeview? It was absolutely a preview my intention was to tell people look if not I never implied or said, you don't have to watch it now because here's everything in it physically say, you don't have to watch it. But everything you wrote implied you now don't have to watch it. No. I'm going to I'm going to tweet out the link to what I wrote. So everybody can see what is that link. So active. The initial one. No, the initial one wasn't no. But the beauty of the beauty of the internet is that you know, you can make things disappear and then come back again. It's like that's not how the internet. We're. Yet. It is forever. Would you review the show, Greg? What would you give it like a letter grade or like star house you review like how do you review after all that? I thought it was scrapped. Well, you know, if it's no coincidence that he launched this series with Pat Riley. I mean, anybody who's ever spoken to Pat, Pat Riley is gold and his relationship with Dan is such the Dan knew that that Riley was going to give them something. You know, be great in Pat was in in Dan is a great interview. So it was a little bit of a can't miss team. But it was absolutely. A a great show. I thought I thought it was excellently you said you did have one critique of it. What do you mean? You did yesterday. It wasn't a big one that there wasn't much mention of Dwayne Wade. I was surprised by that. Yeah. I think so. Yeah. But they imagine everything, you know, I thought it was good. I mean. Yeah. There's a lot of stuff that's edited there. Okay. So now that we've all seen it, and you know, what was in their questions. So not only did he reveal everything that was in it. But he also revealed things that weren't in it in case people were like, I wonder if they were doing with they'll they'll worry no way. No. I didn't mention that into watch Pat Riley discuss the big three at length or Dwayne Wade don't even bother not mentioned that mentioned what was in it, not what was mid, Dan. Did that last week? Also, he's like, well, we don't really get into the big three that much. Lebron? It's like why would you say that don't say that let people think that the whole thing is about that? And then I mean, I guess then they'd be disappointed believe what Riley says about LeBron. You know, it doesn't really matter. What he says about LeBron as long as you mentioned something about them. It was a personality profile rally got emotional a couple of times, which Dan loves it. When people he's interviewing cry. I mean, that's like money in the Bank. But Riley was excellent. And. Dan was I mean, I genuinely thought it was a great episode. All right, let's pivot to the sports portion of this after watching that interview. And getting the understanding that Pat Riley is going to go out quite like this. The plan is twenty twenty. He's obviously up there. But maybe the plan as a mean outlined for us on the local hour last week is next year. Some of these bad contracts in weird way have value. So you can maybe make more of an impact in the trademark it than certainly they have here in recent years is that a fair assessment Amine. Yeah. Thank you, very elaborate mentioned it last week. Yeah. I mean, if you if you really want to know my detail thoughts, the drink Cody give them to Greg. Cody new write an article fourteen bullet point, what do you guys think Wade's going to trade jerseys with tonight? They got Phoenix in town. This is a little bit of an interesting one because Tyler Johnson's there because we were saying that before the season we were saying that he pre plans all these out. So Devon Booker might have been on track to get it tonight. Do you think he sends a text like aim anti maybe James Jones? Oh, wow. There's options tonight. One does Tyler Johnson get a video package. Yes. Yes. Absolutely first class. All. Oh, yeah. What are what is the Tyler Johnson moment? I don't know. He got a big game against Utah. Put out a weight at one on Twitter one where his teeth fell out. He's his highlights just his teeth falling out multiple times because it's happened multiple times. He had a game that they simply weren't of one without him against Utah woes just killing in the lane. Those pre contract is part of his video package signing the contract. Getting traded. You know, where the video package in the arena is it. I mean, he's he's such a culture guy. He's a testament to the cold chard worker. He had to develop somebody into someone who whether you agree with it or not was worthy of that contract. Because multiple teams were willing to pay him that contract the heat the nets and the kings at least and now he's with Phoenix. He he deserves a video he was here. And he was a bit of a fan favourite for a time. I think he has an affinity locally towards him. Because the historians got a really inspirational start, but like. I'm with you, the the the videos again out of hand around the league, I can see tweeting out. Maybe. Thanks. Welcome back Tyler but not an not an interim vity. So who want us team deserves a video thing? Dwayne you us. That's it. Yep.

What's in your wallet between Wade's going to be an all star starter? But that Brian you'd better draft him number one. Oh, let's he's gone. He's going to if I'm the other captain, I'm drafting, wait. I just to ruin the other captains probably going to be Greek freak looking at at the voting, but the games in Charlotte and Kemba Walker is obviously more deserving for this season than Dwayne Wade. And looks like doing Wade's going to rightfully though. Be named starter. The fans giving them one last if Kemba Walker were to like make some crazy comeback and take over as the starter. Do you think that the players coaches would give him one last like Karaz as a reserve or news only shot to get there? I think he's only shot is to be a starter. He's got a pretty big leap. Yeah. Yeah. He should be the starter. You see well since starting in the Western Conference or some interesting results, Luca Danni, which would be an all star Derrick rose would be back court start on their Minnesota just turning out to that amazing moment that fifty plus point game an incredible comeback stories having pretty good season in probably so it's cool. That's another cool story. I'm all for these cold stories twain, weight and Derrick rose, it's an exhibition. Let's nice moment. I want to bring in Brennan Tobin, our friend, hashtag third hour. Congratulations. We're very happy for you. That's one less hour of content. We have to produce him. We're going mad over here. So congratulations to you beast and LeRoy well-deserved. Sir. Thanks, guys. Appreciate it. There is a big combat sports weekend. Coming our way this weekend. We have many patio and Adrian Boehner I didn't even know this fight was even possible. I thought they were different weight classes, I just this is the ignorant casual fight fan in me. I didn't know that this was in the Roma possibility or that this was coming until this week. And that seems like just a celebrity fight doesn't it? Yeah. This is kind of just an many major sound of the new promoter. Al Hayman who has agent Brunner unders promotion, and so yeah, they both were they both were way better when they wore lighter. But this is what they don't wanna cut that way anymore. They're both older men's way older. And the hope I think is if Manny wins this fight it will set up for him another matchup with Lloyd Mayweather. So he's kind of doing Mayweather's promoter here a solid now Heyman. And and hopes that he can get another crack at Floyd. Does. He win. Kenny win many. Yeah. I think many will probably win fairly easily against Adrian Bronner because of the styles like many throws to many punches and Adrian ever since he moved up to welterweight. He just doesn't throw enough. And so he doesn't win on scorecards. He can't really knock you out of this size. So it's this is pretty made for many to get a win. He just signed a new contract without Haymond. So I don't think they want him to lose his first fight. But with Adrian, you know, he's so popular because of social media has outrageous tastes, he's like. He's kind of the first boxing star that was built through like worldstar and social media and all that he gets huge huge ratings people always tune into watch him fight. So there's gonna be a lot of eyeballs on this fight. But but manny's better skill was we're talking Brennan Tobin our good friend producer of the morning show and host of middays here on seven ninety the ticket. He is a fight game expert combat sport expert, so this is the first time many patios fought in Vegas in forever. Right. Yeah. He's huge tax issues. So because of that has been fighting overseas and China and things like that. But I guess that's all settled I think that was part of the agreement with Al Hammas like, hey, can we make some of this tax stuff go away? And and and have me fight over in America, which is much more lucrative. And apparently they did. So he's he's over here. And you know, the one thing that man, he's made a lot of money. But it was crazy. Just watching all access the Showtime twenty four seven that they put on before the fights and on Saturdays before he. Goes to jog he has like a DisneyWorld line outside of his house of people from the Philippines, and he's just giving them cash. Just just giving them cash. And so he's he's basically just funding a country out there. It's pretty wild. There's no way that he's going to be able to keep onto this money because he just he takes care of too many people. So the end game is to get even more money. Take care more people and give us a rematch to a fight that initially happened several years too late the end game here is yet another pack yell Mayweather. Yeah. That's definitely it's definitely gonna happen like because they're gonna they're gonna talk it into because when they when we came up with that fight which was a wild disappointment. Everybody was pissed because they had to pay a hundred dollars. And you got that was. Oh, yeah. Many had a shoulder injury. The entire time that he didn't disclose. And people were like what that's not fair. We bought a busted Manny Pacquiao fight. So, you know, people ended up putting a class action lawsuit together against these guys. Don't think anything really came of that. But people really mad, but they're going to go with that angle in the lead up is. This time any is at full strength. It's five years later, and he's forty years old. But this time that shoulder is fine. I have no interest in seeing that. I honestly sorta got much rather see McGregor Mayweather too. You're not with me on that. Chris was much more fun fight. I had way more fun watching that fight them. Pack Yale Mayweather. I mean, I probably would rather watch that. But I'm not like a fighting kind of like, I feel like Tobin wants no part of MAC of of Mayweather McGregor to I I wanted May- whether McGregor so bad. It was so much fun. The fight week the lead up. I just don't know how they could do it again I'd like to see McGregor box. Again. There's there's there's some talk around him fighting paulie model nausea is a former world champion does color analysis on Showtime's broadcast, and they've kind of had a personal beef because of stuff that went on in the may whether campy sparred with McGregor. So I would say if he's gonna box again, he's probably on a fight somebody like that. I can't imagine him doing doing the Floyd fight again. Jisr people flood ended up saying, oh, I carried him all that way. So I I don't think that's going to happen. Again, we work for ESPN. And by corporate mandate, we have to mention the UFC debut coming your way on ESPN. Plus, which is such a steel. I mean, really, I mean, an incredible bargain to watch all the UFC and get that entire library and have cards like this. It's so exciting. Greg hardy is making his view, which leaves me feeling very conflicted. So what can we expect from this card? Obviously there's champion versus champion main event. Dana obviously trying to make a strong impression. So what what can we expect from this card, and then if you can go into what can we expect from this relationship with the UFC and ESPN, and what that means for the future of the sport? Yeah. There's been a lot of a lot of you of secons. They're going to victory lap today because they're tied with the SPN it feels like this mainstream acceptance because obviously it is you know, the biggest is the biggest sports network in the world. So there's been a lot of that. The championship fight is is is a really good matchup. T J dillashaw the one hundred thirty five pound champion. He wants to go win another bell. That's the big thing. And you have see these days is to win belts in multiple weight classes. So he is shrinking himself down to one hundred and twenty five pounds to five hundred pseudo who beat mighty mouse Johnson for the championship. It's very good matchup. One's a wrestler. One's a dynamic striker very very even magic, but lean dillashaw, but we don't really know how that we gonna affect them. But should be really entertaining fight as far as the Greg hardy thing, it is a conflicting thing because you know, he everybody knows him for one thing. And and it's it's that it's it's how his NFL career unravel with his domestic violence with his domestic violence convictions. And that stuff getting dropped and all that stuff and basically played his way out of the league with all this stuff around him. And the thing that made it even worse was on the same card. You have page van Zandt versus a woman named Rachel ostrich. And she was she in the lead. To her five with page van Zandt was attacked by her husband had an orbital bone. Broken was in the hospital was taken off the card. So in the meanwhile, while she was off the car that aside let's Greg hardy on the ESPN card as well. And so nobody thinks that ostrich and page Avanzi are going to fight then doctors decide to clear her and she does wanna fight on the same card. So now, you have a domestic violence survivor on the same card as a notorious domestic violence of user. So that's got some odd stuff around it because Dana white is, you know, a few years removed from saying you there's no coming back from hitting a woman, and yet he's been on his TV show on the fight pass smiling from ear because Greg hardy, and he's got he's got this guy in the co main event on this debut card, which you know, he's he's he's, you know, celebrating I'm on ESPN. Now, we're finally here. And to celebrate have a former football player with all this stuff in the background. And it's the Komeda then on you have see it's kind of weird. It's like it's not it's not some dumb before they've had CNN punk. They've had in Brockton. Listener Ray Mercer on the often on before. But you know, for them to have this idea of oh, we've been accepted by the mainstream now, but we're also going to give you a little bit of freak show. It's it's it's very conflicting there, but I'm super excited to have them aboard because they have these pay per view cards, obviously. But these fight nights that they put together for sensually free, or at least a vast discount from what you would pay on pay per view, those cards or often better. I don't really understand the business model, but as someone that works for years PM thrilled about it. We need. I'm sorry. Go ahead Tobin. No, I'm just saying like that. They they do a really I think because you guys, you know, nobody nobody promotes sports better than ESPN. I do think that's going to be very good for the fighters and people will learn more about the fighters. I just think that I think that will bring it along a lot further than the relationship with FOX did I we gotta we've done enough of this fighting stuff. Yeah. It was just a big ESPN plus commercial. I don't think that's the way they'd want to promote of Greg hardy personally. But until we have token here, I got a real quick just get to what's up with Dwayne Wade boulevard is this happening. I'm trying man. The there's a big thing with this. There's a guy in the state who's like holding it up with some law. I think we talked about this before the with the Jose can say go thing you guys wanted. You know, we had an exchange. You guys are going to promote the way boulevard, and and I was gonna promote Jose Canseco streak coming back. It turns out it's Jose can Seko's fault that Dwayne doesn't have a street yet because because of Jose can say getting his street taken away. They don't want to give people who are living roads anymore. That's that's what I've been told state. State roads, the guy who is in charge of the now is from down here and knew what happened with the whole Jose can Saco thing. So now, he is taken to stay policy on a wanna give people who are living state roads. What if doing away becomes a mass murderer, and then we're stuck you Dwayne Wade boulevard. So there's a bunch of arguing over that. Like, there's big support from the city and the county to make it happen. But it's just trying to get this. This this students have people in the state to budge good thing is we do have some people down here. Repin the state that do want to tap enough. So they're trying to get into his ear, but it's just kind of held up a politics or now, but their hope is that it get done before the season's over. But I don't like that excuse there's plenty precedents still there's plenty of living people still getting roads. And he can I agree and he can tell his Rubio avenue that guy's a living Spanish language radio legend down here. He's still alive. He's still doing his damn thing. Dan, Marino's got one doesn't probably private under eats on the property owned by the why don't they just name that street like behind the arena between the water and the arena known. Wait alley. Unsettle? No, don't settle. That's not a that's that's like a drive with. That's not a road driveway. No, man. Dwayne we parking lot. How about that underneath the arena twain Wade parking lot. Can we just do this on an odd say what are the odds? Dwayne Wade's going to do something really embarrassing and his old age. I mean, what's the big deal? If it does happen. It's going to be updated on Google. It's not going to be a big deal. And it's like it's like three screws on a sign. It's it's not really that much of a big switch. I don't know what this guy. So scared of Tobin. I have a new cause to see if you want to get in on this. And I feel that you hate me. But I have this new caused I want you in on can we name the bench? You Don is has lem bench just moving forward like forever all through attorney. It's just you Don his bench. His confirmation. Good. Like the bench in the arena. Yeah. Yeah. That the players sit on no man because he's gonna get like the statue. We should get all you're gonna you know, I get that too. But I wanted to the bench after him because it won't be enough to you think you've done has it. We're going to be one to be named after the bench. Now the bench you'll be named after him. We're not gonna call you, Don his bench, mental horrible honor. And I'm Jay, congratulations. Here. The bench is named after you. Remember what you sat the last five years of your career? I mean, we get into the point where there there's a generation of heat fan said don't know you Don Heslin was actually pretty good player. And they just know you Don has lem a guy that's at the end of the bench and never plays were naming a street. Dwayne Wade drove on after him. What's the difference? Boulevard man to boulevard. It's an app fancier. There's a big difference. Purple shirt guy shows up to the all star game because we need one last weight moment with purple shirt Gheit awesome at the top five Dwayne Wade moment. So if the all star game is in Charlotte. Dwayne Wade starting we need purple shirt guy to make his comeback because purple shirt guy. He wore that loss. He went into retirement. There's no more purple shirt guy. He said he was done because he felt like he was the blame for that. Law's bring it back one last time that's happened in the memory. That's a top five Wade moment. Yeah. Man. Oh underlying. I mean, come on in here for line five. Oh, definitely not dude. He was bombed from outside talking smack five or threes that game right? First round of the playoffs, and we're facing elimination. That was an elimination game on the road. Mike. That was a gimme at five threes. Right. Yeah. And he hadn't hit a three since December that year. I'm sorry. That was a top five moment right there. That was the I was little he fans everywhere. We're losing their minds. I think it's absolute Tobin is that a top-five Dwayne Wade moment. I don't know if I a top five, but we're making these vignettes doing, it's definitely. Like in the top ten. Thank you. But what what what what? Got his floater as a rookie. You got. This is my house where he's on top of the thing shot. You got you got shot against Detroit. You got the flip alleyoop till LeBron. And that's just not top of my head for you guys. The step stepping around Gary Neal game four to even the series was tremendous. I would I would put I would put purple shirt guy. Getting lebron. We're not saying it's more important it yesterday right into the play described as more important than terms of more memorable purple shirt guy, man way, more than I forgot about it until might just run. Oh, that was cool and important about it was all those other twain weight and moments that you mentioned those were when he was in the prime of his career playing next to LeBron.

Whenever it is that he does something that is show killing David Samson with us now again telephone number seven eight six four five six four eight three seven. He's the former Marlins team president. What what is the movie we're talking about this week? Hey, it's a great time ear it's Oscar time, I'm reviewing bohemian rhapsody, which is obviously what everyone knows movie about Queen, Freddie. Mercury. Played by Rani. Molla Kuh is going to win the best actor it's between him and Christian bale and vice which we talked about last week. It's an unbelievable performance better than Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison and the doors. That's how good he was being Freddie, Mercury. The movie itself is absolutely imploding with three exceptions. Is it too early to do? Spoiler alert as everyone else to do. Spoiler alert. Yeah. You can't you can't be telling people yet about human rabbit in terms of things that are going to spoil the stores spoiler. Could there be it's a bio pic and thirty plus years ago? I agree with that. The fact is he dies at the end. Deigned it right here for all listeners. Freddie. Mercury dies. So you'd like them moving. I had no idea you'd like them movie David which is a little surprising. It's actually the worst reviewed movie to ever win the Golden Globe for best picture drama, and I'm a huge Queen fan. And I also like Remmy Malik, and I was disappointed by the movie thoroughly I thought they took such creative license at then think it was honest, but the Live Aid scene at the end that was worth the price of admission. Well, those are the things that was going to talk about I was very disappointed with the four five things that they did that they don't need to do. And it made me think about all the movies that are based on true stories. Why is it for dramatic purposes? You have to add certain things when the story itself is so dramatic. This is the number one example where they didn't have to do it. And they did. And that's why it's been reviewed so badly, but you have to see it not just for the Live Aid seen, but. All the musical scene. You end up. I was here in the last twenty minutes of the entire movie thinking about the impact Queen had. And what a group they weren't. How sad it is. But he died so young it is kind of awkward at award season two because Bryan singer was essentially kicked off the project because of how he was treating people onset. So it's now winning all these awards yet Bryan singer is not there yet got full credit for the first thing that I did after watching this movie, by the way, I woke up the next morning, and I saw the actual Live Aid performance. You should always get to shot. Shot. It's amazing. How will they did that down to the, you know, the the soda on the piano, everything every little thing? Remmy Malik deserves the award just based on how well he imitated him. I had a chance to talk about this movie with someone who is who is not alive during the time of live eight because I wanted to understand what their view of Live Aid was and the worst part is there would some recognition of the words Live Aid or band-aid. But no idea that it was that type of concert. No idea that it was simultaneously in Philadelphia. And London that Phil Collins did both on the same day. No idea of any of it. Bob geldof. I might as well have been talking as though I three is. It was terrible. I'm curious though. Because the reviews that I've read one of the main criticisms is that the story doesn't seem authentic that for as as much as they got the details. Right. And I haven't seen it. But what's dissuaded me from seeing as the number of people? Think that's not how it happened. That's not real. Well, the majority is real and you're seeing it for performance sometimes you see movies because the performance by the actress so good that you have to see it. And this is an example, he became, Freddie. Mercury. You go back and not just look at Live Aid. But look at concert footage of Queen look at some of their videos, and he practice Rani Malik did for months to become Freddie, mercury's got the draw line. He put in the fake to do it. That itself is worth your time. With all the crap that you watched Dan, this is two hours. You'll be brought back to the musical times of your childhood. And it will make you smile. I don't remember who it was yesterday who was talking about Will Smith being the best actor of our generation was you mean was I was I said it, but it was Stanley down to the Detroit Pistons with I express well, but Will Smith, and I know you guys can laugh at that. But in terms of recreating personality. Well, what he did with Ali to me felt like the height of acting that he reached a place where? I was like man I can suspend disbelief and here Ali and here the there was that's another great example of the shot for shot recreation. If you watch the fight with Sonny liston, the first fight in the movie, and that's the fight that Mohammed Ali becomes heavyweight champion the world. It is exact same oceans exact same faints the same blows same pacing. It is pretty incredible. Inner win anything for that. Didn't all it was nominated win. What did you want anything? I thought he was great. But I think that's that's another example. That's the performance you have to watch the movie was fine. But, but that's that's the performance same with the doors, which which we talked about. But there's a lot of actors were a lot better than than Will Smith. He's he's good. But I to call the actor of generation, I think that's a little mutt. No. Of course, it is. But what I'm saying? Is that in that one roll man go and give me all the time in in terms of what it is that we're talking about here with Bahamian rhapsody and Mohammed Ali where somebody was so realistic in a role that you were able to suspend the disbelief and believed that they were this pioneering figure that you. Remember, I got one for you. Jim Carey man on the moon plane. Andy Kaufman, excellent. How about Malcolm X, how about Denzel and Malcolm X? I didn't suspend belief. That was always Denzel Benz L is always Denzel. That's one of the things. He it's hard to go past him diso one for training day that year alley the same year that Will Smith was nominated. However, we should correct Will Smith did win an award for Ali. He won the B T award, man. I I apologize. Could anybody sit here and say that Denzo in training day? And I love training date was better than Will Smith. And I'll Li like that's not the degree of difficulty on that kind of acting come on. Like, I'm strong, Denzel wasn't good. I'm saying you're trying to recreate a legendary pioneering figure and you did it. So well that most people were awed by that's not what Denzel didn't training. And I think it's just a I think that's probably the rule Benz L is going to be remembered most for and that's a that's a really difficult year for Wilson to have his role that he's going to be remembered most for to go up against dens out on the poll place at lebatardshow outta virtuosity. I'm gonna I'm gonna remember the titans. I wish I'd given you the room to tell gel Washington will not be remembered for training day and Will Smith will not be remembered for late. We'll Smith is way more of an action star. He is he's made more money. More people seeing that more people have seen Will Smith and bad boys and in focus than they did in Ali. Focus all man, man. That's anything with Margot. Robbie is something that people are watching. Sorry. A great movie. Oh, come on. It is. I'm on David focus is a great movie. Right. Focus was a great moving. No, have you seen focus. You know, how the whole Super Bowl because of focus. I'm like really concerned every time I go to an ATM because I'm afraid that someone's going to combine like a couple minutes later and just pop off the thing, and they're gonna take my code the of the guy. Did it seems so simple to do that as your ally? David the better one for focuses you'd worry about which is the power of persuasion, when you're asked to choose the number to choose the colored think about something, and you there you may have been set up the entire week before to think about a specific thing that was the freaky scene of that movie. Billy the idea that you would put focus in the same category of Wilson's playing Ali. I put it above that. It's one of the most offensive things I've ever heard. I've never seen Ali. Well that explains your day. All right. All right congratulate that interested you gotta look past your love of Lee. And you've got to talk about the actor who played it. I leave course is bigger figure more important figure that a made up movie about a con art. No, I'm talking about degree of difficulty. You're trying to capture night kind of no one disputes that you captured him no one. Well, he's right about the dairies are easily able to imitate they just are you take enough time. Rami Malecki did great. But he put in the time if what about Christian bale with every single accent. He uses never heard him talk. He's one of the seminal thespians of our time. This other guy was with the fresh prince. He is a fresh friend is that he was sorry with jazzy, Jeff my bad. But it's a fine. He's Jeff would have also been comedic -ly funnier is a phrase, but he's absolutely right about zone. Not being remembered for train. He's going to be remembered from alpha mex-, Philadelphia what I would guess Philadelphia to city maybe jazzy, Jeff the cornermen in the movie because that would be dope, Jamie Foxx list. Jamie FOX is going to actually pretty dope man on fire. And don't forget the equalizer that's on the sequel. Cheney is. Yeah. That's asking for that. Sequel is we have a pretty now remembered for Katie Holmes, and that's about it. Oh, we gotta do this more often with David because it's fairly evergreen concept where we pitch an actor. And you say what role was that person known for in your mind? I would have liked us Denzel that question. We'll ask him next time. He comes on David. We'll talk to you next week. Thank you, sir. All right. Take care. Bye. I wonder what Harold shirts pinions every week. He's got he's got questionable move. Just wait till he leaves to say their specialty in your thank him. I mean is so good at that. You think David who's on hold listening to him back up? I'm David did. You hear go ahead of me taking up with David always gone now. It's time. Now you next time. Oh my God. I mean, your your level of cowardice I have yet to see its limits. Like, you gotta give them a piece of my mind, by the way, you were giving Mageza PC your mind yesterday. But it was only happening inside your mind.

Now keep watching collided for more coverage of Sundance coming up next week and this past week. I'm sure you've got some coverage there if you follow them on social media. But a lot of good movies. They were able to see let it not. So good movies. They were able to see. So we're looking forward to all of that. But hey, it is my pleasure to introduce the first time on collider mailbag. Haley foul. How're you? Haley. Yeah. Are you? How are you? Good good. You were just came from junkets. And you say what junket you rather you not allowed to say I can say what I was at. But I can't say what I thought about the movie. I said happy birthday to okay. And I won't be tweeting. When I thought about it closer to release. Stay tuned bronze or the best thoughts. Thoughts trailer was great singer. I can't say what I want to say. Okay. Did your trouble just say this? I really enjoyed that trailer. Some I, you know, not love the smaller like horror franchises. Appeal to me, but this one for whatever reason that groundhog day aspect to a horror film, and then seeing her exasperation the trailer makes me even more excited that she's reliving it all over again. Like damn it. Did we solve this already? So I hope it's a good movie. Of course, you can't say, but I hope it is. So that's we'll say. We'll say allow you guys like to submit your comments in your questions to us. Remember, you have to do them when we put the call out on Twitter and also social media. Remember that hashtag collider mailbag send it in with that hashtag. And it'll make it pop out and then make a possibly get chosen for an episode of the show. I went through a bunch of questions chose five. Good ones for today. You can also Email us at collide mailbag at collider dot com. If you wanna get your question out there to possibly get chosen for one of our shows. All right. Well, let's jump into this thing here. They will walk you through it. If you have any questions, and we'll. There you go. All right. Well, the first one is an Email from opiates ninety six that. Right. Hey, guys. My name is Harry. Hello, harry. And I just wanna say really love the work. You all do my question to you is who would you love to play the new younger Batman, my personal choice would be John Kaczynski or Ben Barnes as outsiders or the more big names such as Jake Jilin all highly. Yeah. I think everyone has a lot of thought. All right. Hot topic. I'm actually very much team Oscar Isaac for Batman. I think he could pull off both sides of that character the Batman side. The Bruce Wayne side, he's got the charisma. He's got the looks. He's got the action experience. So that's actually I'm on team Oscar Isaac above all. But I think there are a lot of really viable contenders. Like, I I love what Ben Barnes is doing in Westworld. And in the punisher, obviously, my thing is I think he'd make perfect Bruce Wayne, but I'm not sure about the Batman part yet. But he's he's up there for me. I also, of course, I love the idea of J Jilin Hong, and we saw, you know, Josh Berlin that it's not impossible to be a major player in the new, and then also go do another superhero movie, I'll deadpool two so that is an option that I'm still keeping in my mind. I would say like those are maybe the top three for me that I'd like to see Fishburn can do both marvel and DC dammit, soaking minutes needs it should be a lot. And it's so it's marvel by. Wave sony. So the even less restrictions on him to go and do so. Yeah. J Jilin hall, obviously is a is a major choice, obviously from Harry than you and other people who love him. I think it's a great. I love the Oscar Isaac decision for me percents. The Latino it'd be mind blowing out Latino play Batman fantastic to see that happen. We'll see I think Jamie Dornan is one we were talking about this off camera. Jeff Snyder, I for like fifteen minutes, and then it came in here and fat and Cody in our in our production. Johnny was here. We were all talk kicking it around who we thought and Wendy to who we thought, and you know, Sebastian STAN got some votes. Ben Barnes got some votes. But to me, the Jamie Dornan choice is starting to grow on me or. Yeah. Having seen him in the fall. And then seeing a wasn't a private war the one that just came out with with our Rosamund pike. I really liked him in that. He's got the gruffness to him the strength. The look everything you could see the chiseled features in the mass. And all of that. I wonder though, if he can pull off the smoothness of Bruce, Wayne, that's the thing that I think we've never one hundred percent nailed full good, Bruce Wayne with a full good Batman interpretation in. So I'd like to see that happen. Those are some interesting choices Chris Evans jumps out at me as well. Yes. I know it's not the younger Batman. But Chris Evans would have been an interesting choice to play Batman. I I like his look he's rumored to possibly be done. With the end game. Goes the way it goes. So he seems like he's also generally done with that with. Batman is a tough one to one eighty so refreshing. My thing that Jamie Dornan, and I do really love the fall. I I have watched two of the fifty shades movies, and that that's sort of a character that is running in the same vein as Bruce Wayne. Billionaire playboy, and he just does not sell that to me in that for me has been the major roadblock of seeing him in that role. Right because I get the appeal and you're right. He has the cut jobs right in the mask, and he can be so good. He's so good in the fall. But he's also not playing a hero at all in the right? And maybe he's just not meant to play. Good guy. Possible. And you bring up good points. I wonder if I wonder if they'll go that route with the name or a TV name possibly Richard Madden has been kicked around a lot. Really good one right because of bodyguard and everything game of thrones people engine kit. Herrington I'm not in that camp in that. Yeah. Or Remmy Malik. I just aren't. Thank you. Exactly. But there there fad was saying he thought maybe someone from the theater who people haven't heard. Yeah. Who's really kind of like made their bones? And so back to be a possibility the one that they've been saying this for years. So it's like not an interesting thing to say anymore, but I still maintain the army hammer would be pretty perfect. I wonder about that. It's just that. I I think they also want someone who can sell a moot and old army necessarily can sell a movie if you look at his box seats. So we'll see I mean, I think it's an exciting time to wonder about who may be there's a great other so many great young actors that people wanna see. So we'll see we'll see if Harry if you're right or who jumps into this thing. It'll be fun to see. All right. What's our next question? Haley our next question comes from at Elliot junior. One two two six nine eight. Oh, you gave me a mountain. He says, hey, collider and it chapter to what parts are you looking forward to see adapted from the book and the adult losers club section. I'm looking forward to seeing the ritual of chewed and the opening death of Adrian Mellon in the dairy fit. This is a tough question for me because it's been awhile since I read the book, I read it like when I was in my teens, and in my twenty s over and over again, seeing these rituals and how they put a I'm glad they removed a certain ritual the first one, but seeing these like, I am the melon thing is interesting. I wonder how they'll make that work. So I wouldn't say that I'm looking forward to seeing any of these rituals more. I'm I want to see how they do them. So looking forward is not the right way to characterize that more curiosity. I would say what about you Haley, which one of these is there another one that you'd want to see, you know, actually, these two are probably the top ones for me especially Adrian Mellon. Which is it's something that I expected to be cut because it's so intense and so hard core. For this sort of like hate crime, right is very it's a very intense thing to put in your movie that's supposed to appeal to everyone across the world maintenance gli. But that takes such balls that I immediately can't wait to see how they do it. And how they walk that tonal line. I am also, of course, very interested in the ritual chewed. I don't know how they're going to pull that off. Will we be in space with giant whale thing? Let's see. But also. Jade of the orient when they're at the restaurant, and they get there. They're little cookies with all the nightmares in them that I definitely can't wait to see how how they personalize it. Based on what we saw in the first film, which wasn't exactly what we saw in the book. Are they going to get different things? I just those would probably be top of the list for me. Would you wanna see the turtle? Do you think they'll make a reference I think they won't go that way? But I would love it. If they did the found a way. Yeah. Me too. I would love to see that. And I wonder if it'll happen, but this is an exciting situation because you have this director coming back. You have a, you know, you have all these actors coming into the situation where like name actors how much of this stuff. Can they get away with them of this? Can they bring it to life? You know wish Eddie deserves a lot of credit forty did for the first chapter. So will he be able to nail these rituals in the second chapter and bring even more of a harder are to this second chapter because it has to it has daily eights adults, and I've said this before, but like I can't wait to see how it works with a young actor like Bill Skarsgard playing against grown ass. Adults from Senator heads, right? How does that play? I think it's going to be great because he's so scary. But it's a totally different dynamic, my friend who's a combo. I'm sorry an animated series writer. We have a threat a bunch of us are on here. And he texted us. I've seen the designs for pennywise for the chapter to it. And I will have nightmares. Mare's for the next the rest of the year. So that tells me that they really are leaning in to the harder look of this. So we'll see what the pennywise designs end up looking like because you bring up a great point. And hey, also because the first design in the first film got dunked on. Yeah. So hard by the internet. And then it turns out, it's great, it's icon, ick instantly and perfect and actually scary. But it did look pretty dufy in the first stomachs. Well, sometimes things have to be in motion. Our let's move onto the next question comes from Twitter at engineering nine kid rights, hashtag clutter Mellberg. Are there? Any directors you refuse to see their movies based on their past work. I have a friend who refuses to see any more of 'em night shovel ons films because of how bad the last hair bender was and how personally he took it. Well, we're in the industry Haley. So this is a tough one because sometimes we have to go see a movie, we wouldn't necessarily is there a director that you hesitate or you worry about going to see that you once maybe like the respect it. And now, you're like, oh, I don't know there are, but they're not that type of thing or more in light of like what's been happening in the industry in the last couple years and not being able to enjoy films that I previously did having new information that I didn't have before that's fair in terms of I wouldn't never outside of those kinds of things like I'm not going to watch this person's movie because like you said we're in the industry, and we have to. But also people surprise you all the time. Yeah. M night really really bond there. But then split in the visit really fun. So I'm glad I saw those Ma I guess the closest thing I have is. I definitely don't rush to see new annum Sandler movies. I would agree with that. I think when you child of the eighties you grew up with Walter hill and Walter hill lost at UC William freakin fantastic with what he did in the seventies. And then just wasn't able to do another good movie Donna, which is a lot of disasters. Oh or disagree on freed after exercise. You think is there another thing that you think that you would go see another film from Brecon that he directed direct thing. I'll write my mom's dog. I love killer. Joe? Okay. All right, Tracy, Letts combos are really banging. Okay. All right for respect that then for me. I think the Shamlan I was definitely out of the Shamlan camp until I saw split. And then went back and saw the visit. And I was like, okay. This is he may have found something. And I I'm one of those people that enjoy. Class. So, you know, put me in that camp, if you want their Oliver Stone is the one that for me, I loved Oliver Stone when he first platoon Salvador. With what F JFK I would even as Nixon I enjoyed with Anthony Hopkins. But then the last few years, I haven't really enjoyed. I just don't go see his movies anymore because I just don't think they're enjoyable to me. And I tried one of them so terrible. That was I just can't I think he's gone. So far the other way that I just don't run to see any of his films. If I have my choice, obviously, like like, I said earlier, we're in the Senate sometimes we have to go because we're in the industry to go see these things, but Oliver Stone's one that's kind of let me down. And I really thought John singleton would come out with more stuff after boys in the hood. But hasn't really worked out that way as well. So spike was getting close, and then he came and then he came back spike was getting closer where me not going to see his stuff because I didn't like didn't like girl six didn't like Sharak. Didn't like I don't know. What he did the last one? He did that. I was just like is this. Yes that one oh, my sweet crowd signal. I'm not going to do it. But then black klansman kind of brought me back. So hopefully that Jordan Peele connection continues for him. Because I think that kind of did something for him. All right. What's our next question? They're all right next. Question comes from Email. Christopher hutchins. Right. Christopher houston. Apologies for got a couple questions for you. I what movie is a kid. You watched. And thought was great. But after visiting as an adult made, you wonder what you were thinking, then second what movie did did you appreciate and like more after revisiting it. My first is the original footloose and the second is the first jobs movie. Well. You're wrong about foot- loose. It's still holds up the original not that ridiculously bad remake Christopher. So maybe you made your in a bad mood when you re watched footloose footloose still holds up. Great sound triggered eighty soundtrack. Lot of good acting and their Kevin bacon. Lori singer come on John Lithgow Dianne Wiest. There's a lot of good things about that movie star a young, Sarah. Jessica Parker before she was a fashion maven with the curly hair. Come on. It's all have strong opinions on foot Lewis whenever go ahead, Chris. But I would say this. And this is a controversial thing. We've talked about it on my pockets top ten show. But e is a film. I do not enjoy watching now that I enjoyed as a kid. It is kind of simple and boring a little bit and the idea of the keys the keys all that. It's a bit simplistic for me. So that's not the whenever I have to watch it or go back to watch. I do not enjoy watching E. I do enjoy it as a child, but has gotten older it has lost its appeal. What about you? Is there a film that you like that's actu-? A really good one. I'm always like really reluctant to say how much I don't watch enjoy watching ET as an adult. I haven't heard anyone else. Admit that out loud before we get a lot of we get a lot of go for it, man. I met no startup tenant Riley hates us for because we did our top ten Spielberg once on the podcasts at once. We were on camera for the collider version of the show, and we did not put ET on either of those lists, and it drove Riley crazy because he loves that movie. So that's a really good one that I didn't think about and I'm like, my my thoughts skewed a little more juvenile. Spice world, it doesn't really did you enjoy that as a child out? So many times theaters amac ally have every Spice Girls album, and I went and saw spice world in the theater myself. It was a dollar theater, but I still went to see it. It's still like cheesy funds. But like definitely when a kid I thought it was like good, actually, it's not. There are a lot of those minor all like really cheesy ones where you're like. Oh, of course, you like this because you were a child, right, right? The. So I can't think of anything more scandalous than ET. Actually, it was going to say like, I might have a scandalous pick. But I it's not that. I don't think it's good anymore. I just re watched it this year, and I have rewatch it so many times in my life and loved it loved it loved it kiss kiss bang bang when I rewind it this Christmas. I was like us a bit much, right? Because this is a great point you bring up. I did watch it again recently as well. And I was like, oh, wow. Like stuff, we were okay. With having an movie back then now in two thousand nineteen year, a little more hesitant to lab or more to enjoy and some of the tropes cliches in that move years like, oh, okay. I guess I was okay with it back then. But I'm not so okay with it. Now, I totally can see that. I don't dislike it, and I will continue to watch probably every Christmas because it's a movie that means a lot to me. But I definitely this year was a shift for me that I didn't expect. I mean the bench between him and Kilmer. There's some really great scenes and moments on the performance are nailing Shabani. And so good in two. I would say the movie that I like more and more after revisiting it is as watchmen that to me is fries. I watched it the first time in the theater. Absolutely hated. It. Couldn't wait to leave thought. It was just tracing over what? Alan Moore had done in that comic. And then watching the director's caught has completely changed me. And I have watched it and champion this film numerous times ever since it's one that I I go back to now even more sonar political climate and find things and statements within it that makes sense now in our topical with what's going on in our world now. And you know, it was it was prescient back then in its graphic novel form, I think Zach Snyder gives a little more credit for making an even more prescient as a film is there a film that you didn't like first time and you've come back to. I think it's awesome. That you came around and watch mentions. I was always one of the people when it was getting, you know, slaughtered on the internet. What was like, it's good. And I just watched it because now it's on Netflix. Right. It is really good the one that I didn't care for that. That grew on me, the older, I got was definitely blade runner. Oh, wow. It took me like maybe four watches because I everybody was like, it's a classic SCI fi. Classic. You you have to love it. And I just keping like, yeah. But I don't I don't like it at all. And then finally NO maybe when I hit college. I just like grew into the film finally resonated with me. And now, I it one of the things I don't do anymore. I used to before I one of the jobs I had before was a testing DVD's testes for this company, and sometimes you can watch terrible movies, and you have Stockholm syndrome because you start to like like the movie, that's so terrible. I absolutely hated the heartbreak kid, the Ben Stiller one nor bit and having tested those DVD's like one hundred times each eventually you start to like think. Oh, it's not as bad as I thought initially. Oh, it's terrible. So if you watch movie over and over and over. Again, who knows maybe you can find your way into liking something about it. But Harper kid was brutal. The first time I've lost. So what's even more? Brutal. Now in two thousand nine hundred the way, he treats every woman in that movie. Yeah. What I'm taking away from this. As you think that the heartbreak kid and blade runner about the saying, no, no God's sakes. No for center, really. It's good that. All right. Let's do our last question before we get out of here. That's from Instagram. Lewis fifty seven seven rights. Do you guys see the potential for at least one more planet of the apes movie would be cool to see a good remake of the original? Thanks. What do you think? I do. Yeah. I think that this franchise can go on forever. Essentially there have been so many movies and different takes on it. I guess they're similar takes very, you know, outside of like the movies that people most remember like the recent trilogy and the very iconic ones. There are a lot of planet of the apes movies and most of them work. So I'm I think it could go on and on and on. I don't know if I'd wanna see a continuation of what we just got in the trilogy. I think maybe more like this question says a remake of the original or maybe something that follows further in the story line. But. Yeah. Forever. I'll watch planet of the apes movies forever. Yeah. I absolutely loved the last two ones. I know a lot of people a lot of people wanna third one we kinda half in half out. But I liked it a lot. I thought what Reeves did with this? These last two installments were fantastic. I like the idea of doing the remake the did do a remake with Mark Wahlberg that we did Burton directed. A better. One would be nice, maybe a recasting on that would be great. And but I think there's definitely room because all of these movies are well done, and they speak to what's going on in our society, and our social constructs. That's what it's tacking. I think there's stuff to still explore in our world and have comment on through this very interesting world that is created with the apes meals, of course, scientifically all these arguments that we come from apes their stuff to explore there. You see it very clearly in the movies, how the burgeoning culture of the culture and how it develops contrasts with the. The already developed human culture, and how they're in essence at times imbalanced, but also a mirror of each other to what could happen in the future and the battles within so DEA. We've we lost. We don't want to don't want to spoil too much. We lost a certain character in the third one. And so you wonder can go forward. I think it has to go forward, especially because we lost that character. You can see the original movie with Charlton Heston coming to fruition with this relationship to the humans and the apes. So I wanna see that down the road. And I think this is a property or franchise. The certainly deserves another movie another chance to get people back in the seats to enjoy it. Another cool approach could be sort of like the the Halloween approach that seems to be getting popular or make a direct sequel to the first film and take it your own direction and slut about I do it'd be cool. All right. All right. All these other things that were great. But we're going to do a direct sequel from the original film damn that would be interesting. Those damn dirty apes are well there you go.

It called Movie Mike's Movie podcast where every single week I just talk about movies whether it's behind the scenes stuff. Sometimes they'll have directors or actors on, but this episode of particular that I wanted to share with you. Guys was one where I researched the topic about actors, and if they're really seeing the movies, you've seen them Internet so everything from like walk the line to the movie Selena all these movies where they're singing in the movie. I researched and found out. Out if it's their voice, or if it's different person actually doing the singing, so it's a bit of movie history also a music history. I thought you guys.

That's Mike Das. And like to get you guys involved in a topic each week to sell. Follow me there, and you'll be a part of the podcast as well, but hope you enjoyed this episode. Maybe share it with the friend or posted on Instagram story tag me on there and I'll reposted at two so without any further ado. Check out this episode pretty wouldn't. Her mother has a podcast. One man stands to infiltrate ears of listeners like never before in a movie podcast. A made was so much movie knowledge piece basically like all walking imdb with glasses. From the Nashville podcast network as is. Movie Today, we're answering the question. Did they really seeing in that movie? So what I did? I researched a bunch of actors who are in music, movies, either biotechs, or just musicals and I wanted to find out. Did they actually provide the voice his movies? Or, do they get somebody else to come into parts? You know how they have like stunt doubles. Come in and do like the action scenes. Did they do that with the musical part of the movie? So I think it's a lot cooler win. An actor can actually sing the part especially when it's a bio pic because I think it gives. A more raw and real approach to the acting and and also just looks better and feels more authentic on screen, so I prefer that, but again if you Kim lip synch. Performance just as well I. Don't think it takes away eleven movie like really what you want to go in and see is the movies do justice to the artist and do justice to the song so no matter how they do that. I think it's a win win. But I think sometimes we get tricked a little bit to thinking like Oh. Let these saying all the parked in this movie and it turns out. They did so actually one I research is thought this artist saying the songs in the movie from like a movie from my childhood in the person is actually really great singer, but it turns out. They didn't provide the vocals so I'll get into that one, but what I wanted to do. I is actors who actually did sing in the movies starting off I with Bradley Cooper in a star is born, which is one of the most recent ones because Bradley Cooper. He directed the film any kind of just transformed his. Entire essence in being into being a musician for everything from hanging out with Eddie vedder from Van Halen to kind of find out what it's like to be a rock star, but he went really hardcore into taking singing lessons, but not only that just like pretty much changing his voice like he might work with a speech coach somebody to train him. Have that really gravelly voice that he has in the movie like he like went all in, so he not only learned how to play guitar for the movie he took them guitar lesson from Willie Nelson Son Lukas Nelson to actually learn how to play guitar. And I think this gives a really great rawness to this movie, and what takes it up. Even a step further is that they recorded a bunch of these performances live, because that's lady Gaga One and she didn't want see to attract, which of course you have a popular lady Gaga. Of course. She's a singer apart. But her request was that she wanted to do them all alive. She thought going in and lip. synching recorded. Tracks would take away from the performance which I feel gives a really like it works really well in this movie, because a lot of it is some just Bradley Cooper on an acoustic sometimes warrants them to together performing a duet and I think having that live chemistry between them to you, because it's really great in this movie like them to together as perfect and even them singing on award shows together. It's great, so I'm really glad they did that with this movie. I think it's cool to find out that Bradley Cooper can actually sing. And I like a lot of songs from this movie I know the Big One. The number one is shallow. But there's a song in this movie called. Maybe it's time and it just Bradley Cooper and Acoustic and I think it's my favorite song from the movie. I know everybody's probably figure shallow, but like this song I. Remember Hearing and thinking. I this is actually a song I would just listen to normally, and there was a song off the soundtrack that I would and just seek out. Do on my own I'm if you haven't heard that song. Here's a little bit of it. Maybe it's. A. Town. Louise. Jane. Tread my favorite movie actually raise? Bell and a really great music movie. If you haven't seen it, and if you want to go and watch it now, there's been a bit but I think it's good to watch and know that he's actually singing in this movie up next I want to talk about Joaquin Phoenix and reese witherspoon walk the line which they both actually sang in this movie, not only that they learned instruments like Joaquin Phoenix learn how to play guitar and Reese Witherspoon. Learn how to play the auto harp, and they performed a lot of these together to live, so I, was pretty nervous about doing this movie because she didn't realize the musical aspect to it like she was going to have to sing, but he's actually a really great singer and them together sound good in the movie. And it's hard to believe like how talented both of them are, and the fact that they actually sing the songs. Just Kinda makes the movie that much better, so they both did six months of bulk training before they started filming this movie and Joaquin Phoenix his voice was actually like to high to play Johnny Cash, so he was trying to get it down low a little bit, but whenever they were performing and roasted with the band before filming. New Voices to high. We're GONNA have to take all the songs like a key, so they made all the songs kind of match to Joaquin Phoenix's range, and then right before they started filming I, guess he trained himself or somehow voice got lower, so then they went back and relearn all the songs in a lower key, which I think is pretty cool that he was like he sounds like Johnny cash in this movie when singing and he gets the mannerisms down. Everything from his on stage performance and just the way. He kinda moves his mouth I think he did a really great job in that and I'm kind of glad. He was able to get his voice a little bit lower because I think that would have taken away a bit if it would have been like him. Singing higher page I kind of wonder. What that sound like did it sounded? Sounded just like a higher version of him or did it sound like squeaky like I don't know, but they can, both actually really seeing and June Carter cash, actually like approved of Witherspoon playing her in the movie before he passed away, and it's kind of sad. They didn't get to see this movie. You know, be put out into the world like before. They passed away because I think. A lot of justice and I think it's one of the best bio pics out there. The most authentic feeling and I'm glad they both saying in this movie all right now. I WanNa talk about Ryan. Gosling Emma Stone in Lala. Land, and they both actually singing this movie before this Emma Stone. She did a lot of Broadway stuff and she's saying there and I think. They got her to sing in this movie like they didn't know that she was like that. Greatest Singer I don't think that's what they're looking for. I'm not saying it's. It's the bad thing. You're like her performance in this is actually really good, and she sounds good, but they were also looking for more theatrical singing for this musical, so her kind of style already fit that, and I think they kind of looked for her having of Rodney and not being super politics, which I think works in this because I mean, it's a musical. You basically go from acting into strata into song. You don't have to be a stellar vocalist to be in this movie and do this part well same thing with Ryan Gosling. That I don't think he's the best singer, but he can sing in a musical performance. Act really well, but the thing about Ryan Gosling is. He's I mean he's seen some of his other movies. And he was actually in the Mickey Mouse. Club as a kid so like with all the original like backstreet boys like that was him like he was like twelve thirteen years old and singing on the Mickey Mouse. Club and I actually pulled the clip of him singing, just to kind of give ideas of how talented he was that the kid so this is Ryan Gosling like twelve years old on the Mickey Mouse Club. So you went from that to singing in La, La land, and you just kind of guy. You have to be jealous about like not only. Is He so good? Looking not only can he act so incredibly well, but he can sing, too. Like come on man. Our next I want to talk about a movie that I wasn't expecting to like now I've been saying for a while now. That I'm not a big fan of musicals, but. But I think I'm just not a fan of bad musicals, because every good music will get recommended to you I ended up liking and that was the case with this movie. The greatest showman now this is a very big music with very elaborate very loud. It's very in your face. There's no getting around. That is a musical, so it's really cool. Seeing huge ACKMAN's range, because not only is he wolverine where he plays a really scraggly. Macho Action Star, he goes onto the greatest showman where he's just as very like dominating spoke, will presents, and he didn't really seeing like this is really hinting his movie and so much so that he'll like do shows and tours where he performs the songs, and the songs are actually really great and very uplifting and kind of like. You find yourself seeing you more around the house like I. Don't know like there was a time in my life where this movie was like kind of in my head, the whole time and I was like man, those actually really good, and it's very hard for a musical. Through to me, but I found this one interesting, and I found a great how he sang in the movie, and the soundtrack is really good, and a lot of the actors actually ended up providing the voices in this movie everyone from of course, Hugh Jackman Michelle Williams. Dia and even Zach Ephron actually in this movie, there was only like one of the main cast who didn't perform. The vocals because she was opera singer in the movie and couldn't really get that voice down, so they had heard in, and that was Rebecca Ferguson who played Jerry Linden, the movie and that was more that he was playing a really world, renowned opera singer, and you're really hard to kind of. Make that and recreate that Hugh Jackman. Really talented guy, so not only did he sing in this movie, but he went through like ten weeks of dance rehearsals be. Able to perform all those dance numbers so pretty incredible performance here and if you're watching it, know that it's actually him singing, he is that talented all right so the last one I wanted to talk about is rocket man where tearing Eggerton Played Elton John on the movie, and he actually provides the singing voice in this. And I don't know. Why would I have a little bit of a problem with rocket man? The movie because Elton John had a lot of input on this movie and the fact that he's still living. I feel takes a little bit away from like the story in this movie and don't get me wrong like Elton John Conic. Musician. He'll go down in history as one of the greatest, and I'm taking anything away from his legacy, but I like it when a bio-pic has little influence from the artist or even like the artist's family. I like when a bio-pic comes out, that's either the person has passed away, and it's you know remembering their legacy or later later later in their career where it's just like okay, here's. That I've done like I like those kind of movies, and it's very rare that that happens because their family is going to kind of have an input on how you portray the character, so it's very rare to get a really raw and straight up what their life was like, but this one. I just felt he was so involved in the movie was also twenty years in the making when he was trying to make this mood twenty years ago, so much of the point like the first person he wanted to play him was Justin Timberlake and he was going to be Elton John and seeing the parts in the movie and they're one point. Point Tom Hardy was even considered for the role, and then they finally decided on Tehran. Who is a lot younger so I thought? This movie was okay. I'm not the biggest Elton John Van to begin with, but I just felt it didn't really tell his story entirely like it wasn't the movie I was ready for yet I would've liked this movie. Maybe ten years from now there was just nothing about it. That really stood out to me. I think it kind of bought into the hype around win Bohemian Rhapsody came out which I'll get into later but I think it just kind of buying into the bio-pics and everybody kind of wanting to. Put out a movie about themselves, so believe the way it's called a tarrant, Eggert, actually all the songs in this movie and so much so that he wanted to actually look a lot like Elton John. Which I. Think is probably what they what they got down best like he would shave his head. To look like Elton John gave him the receding hairline so much that he advocates started losing his hair, so that is commitment to a role. Aren't what don't want to talk about. Next is actors who actually tricked us to thinking that they were seeing a movie one. That probably ruined a movie from my childhood. I'll talk about all after this. Are Now we'll talk about actors who tricked into thinking that they were actually singing in movies so last year Bohemian rhapsody was a big movie and I thought the movie was okay. I felt it was a little bit rushed, but myself. I wasn't too familiar with Queensmead six. Did for me, was really kind of make me familiar with their music, and really kind of go back and listen to them and get into them from that movie and the thing about Queen and Freddie Mercury's that he has such a distinct voice that they had to do something to make it sound like Freddie Mercury so remmy, Malik. They've got him was the choice for that movie it? It was actually going to be Sasha Baron Cohen who gonNa play him, but then he backed out of the entire movie, because the guy from Queen got so involved in the making of that movie that they wanted Freddie. Mercury to die in the middle of it, and then the rest of the movie be about how they recoup in. Did the band without him, so dad got scrapped. Out, and then they found rummy Malik. Who? had a striking resemblance to Freddie Mercury and they did some. Work with his teeth to put it in t to make them have that smile and. Thing is he didn't sound like Freddie, mercury so they had to go and find a way to recreate his voice like I said. It's so disturbing so actually what you're hearing. The movie is real recordings from Freddie Mercury take from livestock studio stuff, but a lot of it. Is this guy named Marc Martel who actually came in on the radio show on the bobby bones? Bones show and performed, and it's crazy this this guy because he came in just him and a piano just from when he was warming up, he did like these little runs that was like holy crap I could close my eyes and picture Freddie Mercury like when he was actually playing and performing. I close my eyes at one point and I was like I can like. Visualize it like he sounds so much like him. So what they said after this movie came out, is that they kind of took remm Alex Voice, mark, mortels, Freddie Mercury and made a combination to put him in a movie, but what I actually really heard that it's pretty much all this Guy Mark Martel because he sounds sold like him, and to the point to where the guys from Queen signed off on them and I think just watching that movie, and after seeing him before I'm pretty sure that they use like most of his stealth, because it is so right on, but rummy mallet really great job playing Freddie. Mercury but. But Saudi Kim. That's a really hard thing to do so i. don't hold anything against the guy. He won best accurate I. Just think it's pretty cool how they made that happen. But if you're watching that movie and thinking Malik, singing, it is not now this next one kind of me by surprise, because Jamie Fox is a really talented accurate and musician, and he's really great singer. And when he played Ray Charles in the movie Ray I thought that was a no brainer that he was thinking in it, but the thing is that Jamie Fox? He loves Ray Charles and HE I mean. He nailed the performance. He looks like. Like him, but he didn't want to attempt to kind of recreate a mimicry Charles Voice because in the movie. He is playing Ray Charles throughout his career and he didn't WanNa. Do an impression of what what ended up just sounding like the end of our lives, so what he did was he actually went and learned piano so in the movie. It's actually him playing piano, which is a hard thing to recreate like when it comes to learning instruments. If you don't know how to play instrument while you're acting, it's GONNA. Look really like the like. You're not going to believe because you're not going to be looking like you're knowing. Knowing what you're doing, so he learned how to play piano to make that authentic, but he wanted to hold ray Charles's voice and use his actual recording, so he did it actually sing in the movie Ray any actually like a really great impression of and you can actually sing just like him, but for the movie say they use live recordings from the studio, and it's not Jamie Foxx singing in the movie nailed the part, though he's a really talented guy and things and other movies. Just not in this one now. This next one is one that kind of ruined. My childhood, just a little bit because I'm a big. Fan, she's a the Hano. Artists out of Texas and growing up like I was five years old and I didn't really know anything about music. Lena and when she, it was a really sad day, like in my family, like I remember the day she died, and I remember getting a t shirt with Lena's face on it and I loved her music so when the movie came out, I was as a kid excited to see and Jennifer, Lopez in it I love her in this movie and the whole time I thought it was her singing because Jennifer. Lopez like Jamie, Fox was saying earlier. She's a great actress and a great singer, but they didn't use Jennifer Lopez movie in the movie. She is actually just lip synching all the songs, and it Selena's real boys in the movie, which makes sense looking back now. Now because it sounds so identical to the recording so identical to how she sounded live, and a lot of those are just studio recording. Actually get a little bit singing. Despite how much he looks like her in could probably sound just like her. I just think it would've been a lot cooler. It was her boys, but I get it that they wanted to hold a kind of true to what Salinas sounded like her actual music in the movie, but for me it takes a little bit much. L. Who thinking that it was Jennifer, Lopez still a great movie. If you haven't seen it, though it's not on Netflix anymore, but if you subscribe to Hbo Max Now. Now you can watch it. There are this next one is another one of my favorite movies. It's La Bomba. Starring Lou Diamond Phillips who played Ritchie Valens enrich balance of course, died in a plane crash back in the fifties with buddy, holly and the big bopper and this movie watching it. I kind of knew that it wasn't Lou Diamond Phillips sinking in it, because you can almost tell in some scenes where he's lip synching that it just kind of completely changes and sounds like a recording, but what they ended up doing is they used music recreated by Los, Lobos, because when Ritchie Valens went into the recording studio and did these old tracks back in the day they. They didn't have everything separated. So when you record music, nowadays you have like the vocals on one track the guitars on one track drums on another track, and so forth, but back in the day it was like straight up everything on one track, because it's so old school everything just pretty much recorded to tape, and there was no way to pull apart tracks so what they ended up doing. When shooting, the movie is the lip sync to the vocals or something like that kind of shit down and away to where they can recreate the scenes and make its sync up just perfectly, but they couldn't do that with these recordings, so what they did is they got? To Essentially Recreate Olive Ritchie Valentine's music for the movie including the Song Lebombo which I knew that one because I remember having the soundtrack to this to this movie. And all of the songs and their slogan. I was like Oh so it's not lieutenant billips. Thing he would much make sense. He looks a lot like Richie balance in the movie, but it's not him singing. This nice little, actually kind of funny. The movie Oh brother where art starring George. Clooney has a really great soundtrack and George Clooney. You're seeing in the movie, and it would be kind of like an entire package of George Clooney. was that good looking and could be able to? To Sing but what they tried to do for this movie, I is actually used George Clooney's voice. There are like you know what let's give them a shot, so he actually sang on like the early recording going into this movie. And when the producers listened back to this, they pretty much said that he sounded like a cat, just screeching and sounded terrible. They couldn't use it so what you see in the movie and what you hear on the soundtrack. It's not George Clooney. It's actually. Actually from a band called the soggy bottom boys who ended up winning a grammy for this soundtrack, and the main song on it man of constant sorrow, even though as talented as George Clooney is not him singing in this one, so the next one's pretty cool, so you got animated, nine hundred ninety four original lion king, and you have a young Simba voiced by Jonathan Taylor Thomas who you may remember from home, improvement, and pretty much being a little hard thrive in the nineties, but But he didn't provide the singing voice for Simba in this movie. Who actually did it was an actor named Jason Weaver, who you may remember as the older brother in Smart Guy, which is really great TV, show back in the ninety S, and he did the singing voice for this, and not only that but Disney originally offered him two million dollars to do the voice, for Simba, and it's okay. You take two million dollars, and that's your pay for this movie, but his mom. Really had a big win here because she kinda knew. How deep or Big Disney pockets where it? How much this movie would could really be successful that she made a really powerful business. Move to be like you know what we don't want. The two million instead we'll take one hundred thousand dollars, and we want some royalties of the movie which. was probably the best move in like a kid's acting career, because the lion king arguably one of the biggest. Disney movies of all time, and you're getting royalties from that for forever. Really you had that money coming in for the rest of your life. Just I'll trade up paycheck in the mail. That's like a really great business. move an awesome way for mom to be looking out for their young. Young Kid because really at that age. Two million dollars sounds like an incredible amount of money, but you're looking at Disney here and you're thinking. You know what they're putting out. These really big legacy animated movies in the nineties I wanNA. Get in on this one for the rest of my life, so I hope those royalties. They're still coming in front of them because that is an amazing story. This next one, a little cringe worthy does that go on in high school musical. Zag Ron is actually a decent singer talked about. The Greatest Showman, where he did actually provide the singing voice in that, so he can sing, and he thought he was going to be the one thing in high school musical like he filmed the movie and did all the singing, but when the movie came out, he realized that they took all of his vocals out, and brought it another singer to sing over him, so it's not actually Zach in that movie because they didn't want to use his Vogel's, so they got somebody else hired him. Zach, said he was actually blindsided when he found out, they didn't use his voice, and after that that he realized that they brought somebody else record, the won't put him in instead without him. Knowing when it came to the sequels for this, he pushed for them to actually use his vogels in the second and third movie. So after let original movie is Franz. Hanging in the movies and speaking of Disney movie is a guilty pleasure. Mine is the Lizzie McGuire movie and I was actually thinking this movie the other day because I felt like this movie. Movie kind of in my childhood now. I didn't get super into Disney really, but I did from time to time when I would go until I. my cousin's House I would watch the Disney original channel movies 'cause after a certain time at night they were just replay all over and over and over, and I didn't have cable at the time. So that's really the time I would been these movies, and I remember watching Lizzy. McGuire being really excited when the movie came out and I feel like that was kind of like the last of my. Years of being into any kind of Disney channel stuff because I was growing into being a teenager, going to middle school and I was like I'm not really GonNa be into this anymore and I remember like the summer. That Lizzie McGuire movie came out. Maybe I didn't see that. On DVD but I felt like that was the end of a marking point of my life. That's kind of how I like pinpoint the end of me being like a an innocent kid to going on to being a teenager, but in this movie Hilary Duff actually plays two characters. She plays herself as Lizzie McGuire, and then she plays the other singer Abella in the movie. Trap with screen situation going on here, but Living Maguire is voiced by Hillary does so. That's hurting English movie, but this bringing Isabella they actually use hilary duff sister Hayley. who also guest starred in episodes of Lizzy McGuire? So it's all right. They're coming out in the movie. Haley Duff and Hilary Duff's boats singing in that part and there you go, those are the ones that were the most interesting. If there are any others you think, I should've included in this list. Just hit me up and tweet me at my destroyed or send me a message on instagram. All right to this next movie review. It's a movie that I was highly recommended to watch a guy work with on the bobby bones show named lunchbox. He saw this movie and was completely floored, completely blown away by it so much so that he's been recommending it to everybody like his family and lunchbox isn't really a big movie Guy, so it takes really kind of something to kind of shake him to his core and so much so that he recommends it to people so. So I was like all right. I can't believe first of all that I haven't seen this movie and second of all. If he's so hype about this, it has to be good, so it's a movie called Molly's game which came out in two thousand seventeen stars Jessica, chastain Idris Elba and Kevin Costner, and it is available to watch now on Netflix. If you're looking for something to watch before we get into the review, here's just a little bit of Mali's game molly bloom. Do, you know about me? Ledger indictment ethic. Got You call last night and I? Want your book. You understand that you're charged with operating illegal gambling business. He's taking his client. My Sick Flyer on. Princess can do it I. Did your incorrect? I'm getting a you. Don't think much of me, but what if every single one of your ill informed unsophisticated opinions about me we want. Is the true story of molly bloom with an Olympic class gear, and then ran the world's most exclusive high stakes poker game and became a target for the FBI and what I like about this movie. But in the beginning was that it kind of started at the UN it kind of set up her story at an Olympic skier, and then it kind of just kind of flip flops and goes into how she got arrested, so it kind of starts at the end, and then works away figuring out kind of what happens so Jessica. chastain plays molly, and then she's working with either elbow. Who was her lawyer? And she's trying to get out of trouble with the FBI, and then throughout her kind of extending your situation, it goes backwards and kind of start from the beginning of how she started poker games into work. She ended up now so I've. I've got the movie was had a really great premise I. liked this storyline, but I also felt like in needed to know a little bit about poker which win lunchbox told me about it, he said even if you're not into poker, even anything about gambling, you'll still enjoy this movie. And I just find myself having a kind of Google, things and kind of like look at things and realize like why they happen to certain way I didn't feel like the movie did a great job explaining everything as a win throughout, but I think the real problem I had with this movie is that it's a lot of explaining and not showing so it's molly. Pretty much telling the story of what happened the entire time, and she narrates in a way that it kind of gets a little bit boring, because there's parts that you just want to see happen, you just want to feel those things you want to feel those things with her and experience, but it's all her kind of like backtracking back, and I felt like this movie was building up to something that never really paid off anywhere got anything kind of accomplished to me in the movie I thought there was going to be like this. Really big unbelievable scene were just something unbelievable happened, but it never really got there for me and ended up. You know I didn't feel. Feel like it did a really great job that there were some really cool parts to it I thought there were some pretty cool part to it. I found it interesting, but as a movie in a whole, I just didn't feel like it had a lane anywhere like it was kind of a bio-pic, but it didn't really feel like a coherent movie to me like I thought it was entertaining enough to keep watching it and no point I was like I'm going to turn this off, but not carry more. Maybe the last twenty minutes I was kind of over it and didn't really care what was going to end up so for that I would probably rate it. Like barely added three at a five poker chips right on the very end, it's entertaining enough, but it's also two hours and twenty minutes, and those last twenty minutes. Really don't go anywhere in the kind of engineer like Oh. That's how it ends like that like whereas everything else like I duNno. I feel like there's another movie inside there because it is based on a book and it is based on a true story and I feel like there's more inside of that true story that makes for a better movie than the way. This was told and I don't even think it was the fact that it was so hyped up to me. That I found myself. Not Liking get Kinda got bored there towards the. The end, so I'd say maybe if you're really into poker in gambling and want to see a movie about that. Maybe it's more for you, but if you know nothing about it and really don't care anything about that story line, I'd say it's probably not worth your time. Thanks to everyone for listening. I hope you have a good day. Hope you have a good week and we'll talk to you next time later.

And I'm Lisa Mullins. It's here and now President Trump heads to Vietnam today for meeting with North Korean leader, Kim Jong UN Trump offered an optimistic prediction when he spoke earlier today at the national governor's association meeting in Washington, I think we'll have a very tremendous summit. We want the nuclearization, and I think he'll have a country that will set a lot of records for speed in terms of economy. Trump also praised US trade negotiations with China. He is called for another summit with Chinese president Xi Jingping if they reach a deal and vice president Pence in Columbia today where he announced new you and US sanctions against the allies Venezuela's. Madero Madero was holding onto power in the country despite US efforts to get them out. Lots of talk about now with NPR White House. Correspondent Scott Horsely? Hi, Scott good to be with you so start with a summit meeting with Kim. President Trump talks about how denuclearization will be an economic boon for North Korea, which I think is going to be a hard sell for Kim Jong UN who seems to align. His own power with his nuclear weaponry is denuclearization realistic outcome for the summit. Remember leaves at the end of his last summit with Kim Jong UN President Trump declared that North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat. So certainly at least a declaration of denuclearization is realistic. The reality maybe less so Trump's own intelligence agencies. Have concluded that North Korea is not doing away with its nuclear arsenal. In fact, it seems to be enhancing it, and they don't think Kim is inclined to get rid of his nuclear weapons. Aides do say one goal for this summit is simply to have the two sides agree on what denuclearization. Means to each of them. So it's pretty modest goal there. Right. And I think that's been a goal for quite some time. Now is South Korea has hinted that the summit could lead to a formal declaration of the end of the Korean war. It's hard to believe, but there's been enormous since nineteen Fifty-three if there is a formal end to the war, would it be a meaningful step or or more symbolic one secretary state, Mike Pompeo was asked about the possibility of such a declaration on the Sunday shows, and he was non-committal one concern is that if you in fact had a peace treaty. What would be the rationale for keeping the Twenty-eight thousand US troops in South Korea? And there would be increased pressure on the US to withdraw President Trump did say on Friday that withdrawal of those troops. From South Korea is not on the table at this point in Chinese trading. Oshii extended their talks through the weekend. Scott, President Trump also delayed an automatic tariff increase. He is sounding an optimist. Tone disea- have reason to be optimistic. He says they're making significant progress in not just on things like soybean sales, but the more fundamental structural issues. Like protection of intellectual property. He has an offered any details though. So it's really hard from the outside to assess what what's really happening with the talks as you mentioned. He he suggested that a final deal might be worked out between himself and Chinese president Xi Jinping. And he's talking about a possible summit with she maybe as early as next month, and maybe at the president's vacation home down in Florida right before we let you get. We want to catch up with the vice president he is in South America. Mike Pence's meeting with leaders of the Venezuelan opposition including one quite oh, the US has backed by dough and has called for the current Venezuelan President Nicolas Madura to step down. It's imposing new sanctions on countries that support Madero and it wants the UN Security Council to meet to talk about Venezuelan tomorrow. Do we know to what extent the military, which is very key in Venezuela is still. Behind the President, Nicolas Maduro. So far defections? Venezuelan military have been very limited most of stuck with Maduro for the timing. But the US as their patient, and they do believe that ultimately Medeiros days are numbered. The vice president did announce some additional sanctions on governors loyal to Madero today and also some additional US aid to the countries surrounding Venezuela, which have taken in a hundreds of thousands of inas Waylon refugees NPR White House. Correspondent Scott Horsely think he's gone. You welcome. Well, last night's Academy Awards had many I. This has been a long time coming. I am the son of immigrants from Egypt. I'm a first generation American and. Story is being written right now. And I could not be more grateful to each and everyone of you and everyone who believed in me. And when you think it's impossible just remember to save this piece of advice. I got from very wise woman. I did my best and my best is getting enough. Cain. Thank you heard. I from Ruth Carter who won best costume design for Black Panther the first black woman to win this. Then Remmy Malik best actor for bohemian rhapsody the first Arab American to win that award finally Hannah beaker who on the Oscar for production designed for Black Panther. That's a stark contrast to the pool of nominees in two thousand fifteen when all twenty in the lead or supporting actor categories were white. That's when the Twitter hashtag Oscar's. So white was born April rain began that campaign it quickly gained momentum with some actors valley to boycott the Oscars the academy of Motion Picture Arts and sciences soon voted to double the number of women and people of color in its ranks by twenty twenty. So did last night's award ceremony. Live up to the academy's pledge to change April rain joins us now. Welcome to here. Now. Thank you for having me. So you were at the Oscars last night. This was your first time attending the big event. What was it like for you? It was an incredible experience. I was able. To take my nineteen year old son. And that meant a lot to me because when I created Oscar so in January of two thousand fifteen it was truly because I believe that all children, regardless of who they love where they look like or where they're from should have the opportunity to see some facets of their experience represented on the big screen were there any favorite moments for you where you were able to step back and take a look at what you helped bring about. Absolutely watching Spike Lee win for best adapted screenplay for black klansman was definitely one of the highlights of my night. Spike has been very generous in indicating that he believes Oscar so white was instrumental in him being nominated not only in that category. But also nominated for best director, and the film black klansman being nominated for best picture. In addition. I I love seeing into this fight averse win Black Panther won several categories. And I think that was a big win for big action franchises. That's something. We've never seen before enhance. A be cler winning for best production designer for Black Panther and Ruth e Carter winning best costume designer. So there were a lot of very special moments last night. And Spike Lee, thank you directly for your campaign. Here's Spike Lee in the pressroom afterward, April rain has tag a so I and the former prison or the Cammy award. Most of sciences Sherwin ISAACs I wouldn't be tonight. They opened up the kademi the make the Kanye look more like America's more diverse must feel good to get a little credit from spike. You know, it's fantastic an incredibly humbling, but I think spike makes it good point there that who the academy membership is what the demographics are make a huge difference. And so the academy committing to doubling the number of people of color and doubling number women. I think that's why we're seeing some of the changes in some of the first that we're discussing in twenty nineteen. So I hope that the academy continues and realizes that the films that one. Last night. And in previous years are all incredibly quality performances quality filmmaking that should be represented in these types of films that always should've had accolades bestowed upon them was a big night for diversity though. I mean, there were plenty of I for categories Regina king won her first Oscar for supporting role, and if Beale street could talk Black Panthers Hannah beak ler Ruth Carter made history as the first African Americans to win Oscars for production and costume design round. The Alec became the first Arab American to invest actor for his portrayal of musician, Freddie, Mercury in Bohemia rhapsody. So you could argue last night was the culmination of oscarssowhite, not quite mission accomplished, but there has been real progress. Where do you think the movement goes from here? I don't think that there's any change, you know, one night does not change what we've seen over ninety years of history with respect to the kademi of Motion Pictures Arts and sciences. So until we are no longer talking about I in a particular. Oh year until we see every marginalized community not just based on race or ethnicity, but also with respect to gender identity sexual orientation disability age and indigenous people in this country until all of those categories are recognized and we see facets of those experiences on screen not just during award season. But all year long. There's still a lot of work that needs to be done. I want to ask you about the best picture winner. The interracial road trip film. Green book won best picture Meyer. Shelhah Ali won best. Supporting actor movie is set mostly in the Jim crow south in the early nineteen sixties and depicts the unlikely friendship between an African American jazz and concert pianist and his white talion American driver. But there's been some heat from some critics who call it a retrograde white save your film, others of said, that's not the case. What do you make of this win for green book? You know, the concern for me has always been who is telling the stories. And whose stories are being told so some of the controversy surrounding green book is that Dr Shirley's family, Dr Shirley who was played by Mahershala Ali brilliantly was not fully consulted on the film. It was actually unhappy with his portrayal in. So we always need to go back to the very beginning. You know, the Oscars are the pinnacle the end of the road with respect to film. But let's talk more about who the screenwriters are who is being consultant on the script to make sure that a full in robust story is being told. And so I think there's still more work to be done there as well. All we give great performance. I thought he deserved a word award. Absolutely AP. Rain is creator of the hashtag Oscar so white. She's also a consultant on equity and diversity in the industry. She attended last night's Oscar ceremony, April, thanks so much. Thank you for having me. Leo Fender and les Paul were pioneers of the solid body electric guitar Leo unless his innovations helped change, the course of music and put the tar at the center of the rock and roll revolution. Muddy waters, Jack white a taste of the sound the offender unless Paul helped create bender was a master engineer who crafted the telecaster Stratocaster Paul was visionary musician and recording artist Gibson named at signature guitar after him Paul's Rena was the stage fenders the workbench. That's how journalists import describes it and his new book the birth of loudly offender, les Paul and the tar pioneering rivalry that shaped rock and roll and import joins us from NPR studios in New York in welcome to here. Now. Thank you for having me Lille Fender unless Paul were really different personalities, but you make clear they were both sort of irrepressible tinkerers innovators constantly trying new things with guitars amps, and pickups, and plugs. Both on stage in in the workshop, tell us about how they went about innovating Leah thunder became fascinated. With radio from an early age. Actually, he was fascinated with pretty much everything. Mechanical from the automobile to the radio started repairing his classmates radios, and that was really how he got into the tar world because as it turns out, the electric guitars amplifier is basically overgrown somewhat simplified radio. Now, let's pretty much tinkered with anything he could find whether it was late switches or phonograph or radios trying to find the sound that he thought would set him apart as a musician electric guitar sound pure electric sound that would define him and some of these breakthroughs were almost by accident tinkering around and hearing feedback talk about that, you know, less would just kind of throw together. Whatever contraptions he could find you know, one when he was a kid. He tells us famous story of how he pulled the phonograph Neil out of his father's phonograph set jammed it into the top of acoustic guitar he had and plugged that into another radio. So he could amplify. His very primitive electric guitar. And this was way back before nineteen thirty before they were really even many to many electric guitars on the markets. He would just take whatever he could find and Leo is pretty much the same way. Yeah. Leo was a big tinkerer too. And they were friends, or at least frenemies. I think and you describe how there was sometimes these backyard chats over, you know, les Pauls barbecue where they'd have a beer and talk shopping a rivalry developed between the two of them. Tell us about there's competition to innovate and build a better solid body electric guitar, you know, at the end of World War Two in Hollywood. It was it was a real musical hot dead there were country musicians that were jazz musicians. Of course, film industry was there and everyone kind of knew that music was getting louder and they needed sort of more powerful instruments to ring out over the crowds that were coming to shows and just to kind of define the new era of music and leads wanted to new sound because again, he thought it would make him famous. He wanted that kind of defining thing. So he would listen to the suggestions of tinkers who came to his Hollywood studio he had a recording studio in his garage in his backyard and Hollywood the kind of drew all real motley mix of people musicians, of course. But also tinkers likely offender, Leonard listen to their ideas, Leo would show up to listen to their ideas. Listen to their feedback say, you know, hey, what do you think of this amplifier? What do you think of this Qatar? What's what's the right speaker size? What's how should we Hugh these things that kind of thing and eventually that grew into a rivalry because Leo had a company building these electric instruments? And you know, when he built finally the first commercial, solid body electric guitar. He showed it to less, Paul. And as it turned out. Liz wanted to go in a different direction. Les, Paul and his wife Mary Ford who's also guitarist Enron, right? And a singer performed as a duo. Let's listen to one of their famous songs how high. In in your view, how Paul change what could be done with the Qatar. Well, for one thing less recognized that the way that the electric guitar was recorded was crucial to its success. And he viewed the electric guitar not just as the instrument itself. But the way that it appeared on the final record because he had that backyard studio he was able to layer the electric guitar many many times over as you here in how high the moon, creating this kind of other worldly Ferial atmosphere, and he combined that with his incredible musicianship the skill. He developed over years as professional jazz and country player and just really gave it a kind of a sci-fi like sound that defined his records in someone's. You can't underestimate the impact of the tours of England that muddy waters and buddy Holly did with their guitars their new innovative Qatar. You know, young men named Paul George, and Ringo and Mick Keith, and Eric, you know, they all felt that wave. Here's buddy Holly with rave. Von. Got. So in an England air Clapton's watching buddy Hollywood appears on TV Clapton starts doing his own thing on the solid body. Talk about the impact of those kind of tours of the UK England of of nine hundred fifty seven nine hundred fifty eight is really a very different place from America as a kid growing up in England, especially in kind of a working class town like Eric Clapton did or or like John Paul did, you know to see someone like buddy Holly there with kind of his full sort of? Nerdy spectacles, and this incredible futuristic. Fender Stratocaster that's hanging over his shoulders. Imagine seeing that serve crackling over year your tiny little black and white television. As you think about how much can you can possibly nab from the corner store. I mean, it was a quite an experience. Clapton's watching buddy Holly ends up falling in love with the electric guitar. Let's take a listen to all your love on the album, John mail and the blues breakers with Eric. Ironically has Paul and offender both sort of disliked loud disliked feedback dislike distortion in somebody's dislike rock and roll. That they. Yeah. That's exactly right. You know, these guys came from an radically different era in American music came out of the country tradition jazz tradition, which kind of easy ship and sort of Corum prized for them into see kind of popular music over run his wild longhaired kids playing their electric guitars and banging out three chords loud as they could. It was crazy. It was just completely NFL to them. And they had a hard time getting their heads around it. They thought it'd be passing fat everyone thought it would be a passing fad more or less, especially in the fifties. You know, the grownups in the music industry didn't want rock and roll thought it would go away, and they were really shocked when it resurged in the early sixty s mid sixties your book, effectively ends with Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock in nineteen sixty nine. Let's listen to some of that. Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock in that performance was fifty years ago as you started working on the book. Washington Post headline story that the death of the electric guitar Gibson filed for bankruptcy reorganization chapter eleven last year, and some have certainly declared that the the era of the big electric guitar is over that seems a little overblown. What's your take look around, and you still see electric guitars in the hands of a lot of the younger more successful more sort of relevant musicians out there. And I'm struck by watching the Grammys recently, how many performances at the Grammys featured a cameo from the electric ATar that was a young Rb singer like her or brandy Carlisle having Qatar solo in her show, you still see this everywhere. And I don't think that's going to change. I was finishing can book when the Grammy's were on and Hurst performance was really one of my favorite. She played hard place on a beautiful for the sif route str-. Stratocaster one of the few moments. You know, I saw where the where the strat at least one like that took center stage at least. Yeah. There was her with the Stratocaster Shawn Mendez had beautiful Fender telecaster. I mean, you can just go on and on the instruments still is out there. People still wanna hear it still has something to contribute to our today. Imports. New book is the birth of loud. Leo Fender less ball and the guitar pioneering rivalry that shaped rock and roll in.

The oracle of Omaha Warren Buffett releases annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders over the weekend buffet is eighty eight years old he's worth more than eighty billion dollars is annual letters read widely by investors in anybody looking for gems of wisdom from buffet for some takeaways from this year's letter returned to Jill Schlesinger, who's business analyst with CBS news and host of Jill on money Higel. Hello, Warren Buffett prize himself on beating the star. Market's performance how do last year twenty eighteen was not a great year for any investor. But if you owned Berkshire Hathaway, and they're two different ways, they can measure this. But let's look at it by the per share book value of Berkshire Hathaway twenty eight teen was a slight gain for tenths of a percent. And that compares with a four point four percent loss in the S and P five hundred including dividends. So yes, they beat the index. But it wasn't one of the best years. Berkshire right posted a more than twenty five billion dollar loss in the fourth quarter of last year. Some of that was the market volatility that we saw in December some of it also had to do partly with big investments in craft Hines. It owns nearly a twenty seven percent stake. What's happening there? So Kraft Heinz had a very bad twenty eighteen capped by a horrendous fourth quarter, and one of the big problems that Kraft Heinz reported after the close last Thursday was that it was being investigated by the government about some accounting. Policy. So this letter that buffet wrote really reflected fourth quarter of last year. And so as a result Kraft Heinz there was a right down in berkshires portfolio. But look they owned other stuff that was down. Whether it was apple or Bank of America. Wells Fargo anyone who a retirement account knows fourth quarter was a rough go and also was a rough one for Berkshire Hathaway as well. And what about acquisitions Warren Buffett's known for chasing, quote, elephants sized acquisitions as he puts it. Why hasn't berkshire-hathaway bagged anyone lately? Yeah. It's been a few years, actually. Well, look buffet explains that unlike the private equity firms that are throwing cash around and paying up for deals that buffet and his partner, Charlie Munger, they are just not going to throw their money and pay what they called sky high prices for businesses that he thinks have just kinda so-so long-term prospects, you know, as a result, which kind of wild is in this report, we saw that. Berkshire has nearly one hundred. Twelve billion dollars in cash what a swollen balance sheet position. But I think from buffets point of view, he said, look, I don't care. I'm not paying up by some stocks that are publicly traded, and I'll just be patient. He also echoed the sentiment that seems to be in vogue right now. And that is don't sweat the federal deficit. It's something we hearing from everybody from President Trump to Representative Causey Cortez. They seem to be embracing this attitude recently, I wonder why you think that is. Well, I'm look I think that that that the the experience is really shown that big deficits and as buffet details towards the end of his letter goes back seventy seven years back to March of nineteen forty two and explains what was going on. And how he had feared that deficits. Increasing would really be detrimental to the economy. And he shows look it hasn't. Yes. It has ballooned. But so far there is no detrimental impact. Right. This minute. Not sure that he's willing to say anytime in the future. But certainly, right. Now, we don't see high inflation interest rates are not going sky high. So I think that he has now sort of tempered that fear of debt and deficits always nicer talk to you, Jill singer business analyst with CBS news and host of Jill on money. Thank you, take care. The United States and China are continuing trade talks after making some progress over this weekend, the talks led President Trump to delay raising tariffs on Chinese imports. And Trump said today, he'll hold a summit with China's leader to sign any final trade deal. If they get their one of the areas, we're gonna go shooters reportedly came to a compromise had to do with China's requirement that American companies handover technology if they want to do business in China. Details of any compromise on that are still a bit sketchy. But we know that artificial intelligence is a key form of technology. Both countries are deeply interested in China's been a leader in this field. And we want to take a closer look at the issue. Now, let's bring in Gregory Alan, he's an Adjunct Senior fellow at the center for a new American security in Washington DC. Gregg, welcome back to here. Now. Thanks for having me on. So I turn artificial intelligence can encompass a broad array of technology, voice, recognition and much more. Give some real life examples of what we're. Talking about here. Sure, the term artificial intelligence what it means has changed over time. What we currently use today as tax preparation software, such as turbo tax was very successfully marketed as artifice intelligence in the nineteen eighties. But nobody would call that a I today the most recent innovations around artificial intelligence relate to machine learning, which is sort of new domain of computer programming whereby rather than the human type in every line of code by hand the machine based on applying an algorithm to data set and essense programs it self and that's a bit of over simplification. But it really does get at the heart of what machine learning is. And also what kind of capabilities that enables so many things that in the past. We would have said are impossible for computers to automate are suddenly on the horizon. There was actually a major book in two thousand five the essential gist of the book was what computers can't do and making a left turn into ongoing. Traffic was canonical. For example of something is impossible to automate. And that was true before machine learning really hit its stride in the past five or seven years. Nobody would say that driverless cars are impossible. And in fact, they appear to be right on the horizon and machine learning can be used for everything from driverless cars to education. Absolutely. I mean machine learning is why language translation has become so high quality of late why voice recognition software, which used to be awful is suddenly quite good. It's at the heart of the Amazon echo, the ability to hear your voice translate that into actual text that can be used for a computer interface. The same also true with image recognition used to be quite difficult for computer when given an image to say, what is in the image. Now, that's a really high performance capability, and in fact in some areas, you can actually beat human experts using AI systems. Gregory President Trump signed an executive order this month to invest more in artificial intelligence. How does it compare to what China? His investing. Sure, I will say we don't entirely know yet. Most of what this executive order does is get the ball rolling on increasing investment and artificial intelligence, so the fiscal year two thousand twenty budget process is still underway. And this executive order directs the heads of federal agencies engage in research and development to formally make a research and development priority to begin measuring what they are spending agency wide on artificial intelligence and to significantly increase in that amount in line with declaring AI priority. So the actual budget totals of what the federal government is going to spend on. We don't really know yet. I do think it is safe to say though, that historically over the past years China has demonstrated significantly greater levels of strategic focus and funding when it comes to artificial intelligence as just one example, though, the largest federal program of which I'm aware is at the defense advanced research projects agency DARPA, and they are spending two billion dollars on research. Development over five years by comparison. The province of Shanghai in China, which is a city government is planning on spending in US dollars fifteen billion dollars over ten years. So literally, we have the US federal government at present, you know, at risk of being outspent, by provincial government of China. They really spending jaw-dropping sums on this area. Trump's executive order tells heads of federal agencies to look more deeply at a and look at investing in it. But a lot of details. Still to be worked out in the real innovation is going on at private companies in Silicon Valley, mostly in the US. Yes, that is certainly the case the US government does important work in research. But so far has been heavily outspent by the private sector. We know China has been aggressively moving in this field, boo. What is their strategy, you visited China several times? And how's it different from the US government's approach? Yes. I went to China four times in the second half of two thousand eighteen had an exciting opportunity to engage with Chinese diplomatic officials. Military officials. An executive in China's technology sector, I'll say the first thing that struck me was the level of strategic. Prioritization, they I it really does go all the way up to president Xi Jinping in China who really has said, hey is a priority for this government all the way down and the other thing that really struck me was the strength of Chinese companies in this area is just one example using machine learning for voice recognition, the chief of a system that could beat average human performance using AI system that occurred in China actually before it occurred in the United States. So they really are making real progress in advancing the state of the art in research and development on their also having tremendous success at commercializing their research into companies and venture capital ecosystems. All of that is quite strong China. The other thing that I thought was quite interesting was the connection of all of this effort in China to military the official Chinese strategy declares a policy of what? Translates into English as military civil fusion whereby commercial developments are then leveraged into military technology, and that's a real contrast from the United States. The department of defense is rather openly said it's it's trying to engage with the innovators in Silicon Valley and having difficulties doing so in China. There are a lot more tools to either legally coerce, the cooperation of commercial companies or just to incentivize them with lots and lots of money. There isn't the quasi firewall. We have in the US China's more aggressively from a national security standpoint moving ahead with a militarization. Yes. And they say rather openly their goal for artificial intelligence is to you know, to transform their military and make it into the strongest military in the world, they sort of define that the current era of technology as information technology what we now know is IT and they play that to military sphere. And they say the future is one of intelligent is technology, and that's a future based on technology. Their hope is that they will have an advantage in adopting a technology, and they will use that to build a military that is stronger than that of the United States. And it was remarkable. They say all this quite openly. So from your research, China has significant strengths and what in your view are its weaknesses. Yes. And this is important China is extremely strong in research and development. If you go to any international conference Chinese researchers will be presenting their papers there. They will often be quite good papers. They are also strong at the venture capital ecosystem and turning research into commercial companies, but they are not equally strong in all areas. There are areas that they identify correctly as their own weaknesses. So the first one I would point out is that of top talent Chinese university Tsinghua University did a very interesting sort of global census of AI talent in what they found is that while the United States and China had the largest AI talent ecosystems. And are you know, roughly equal there when it comes to top. Talent. This a best of the best in the research and development community China actually ranks ninth rather, the number two they actually identified themselves as having fewer than one thousand individuals in the entire country of one point three billion individuals who really rank in the upper echelon of AI talent, it's not entirely clear, you know, what level of a disadvantage that actually poses. It has not prevented China from its current level of success in advancing the state of art in our in D And also commercializing, but it is certainly something that Chinese government officials are paying attention to and they have radically increase their spending in the ministry of education to try and develop new training programs and university education programs that put a I Gregory were about out of time briefly what single US policy. Do you think could help America advance in the I feel? I think there's so many precursors that affect your ability to affectively implement, a I I'm you have to be thinking about what types of data. Are you collecting how are you storing it is it ready to be machine readable? And so I think as the US government is thinking about effective policies for AI. They need to think not only about promoting research and development and advancing the state of the art although that is important. They also need to think about the policies within government for how we're going to use. And what it can make it easier to adopt a in the service of executing the government mission. I think that's an important area and one that I hope will be prioritized in the coming months. Gregory Alan is an Adjunct Senior fellow at the center for new American security, Greg. Thanks so much. Thank you for the opportunity. In New Orleans, mardi gras parade season is in full swing. But one long running parade tradition is prompting a lot of debate this year for the one hundred tenth year street members of the New Orleans, Zulu, social aid and pleasure club will March. And was some observers say is black face the clubs philanthropic and social club with members who are black and white. Our next guest asked the question can the tradition survive in two thousand nineteen and more importantly, should it. Jarvis to berry is deputy opinions editor of the times picky Yoon in New Orleans starves, welcome to here. Now brings having me. Could you first describe for those who haven't seen the parade or the images of the makeup that participants in the Zulu parade put on? While his black makeup is black. And usually they're white circles around the eyes or mouth, it is in so many ways identical to reminisce of black face that you might see on menstrual stage or Aljosa, and or or someone like that the Zulu social aid and pleasure club doesn't see that way. They have released the press release this said that they wear black makeup. But that they don't do black face. But if you are seeing for the first time, it is probably likely that you're going to respond to it as if you are seeing black face because you're also seeing kind of afro wigs and grass skirts and all so we're seeing obviously through a twenty nineteen lens. And when it started in nineteen oh nine what was the meaning behind it? Then that is someone unclear to me is been a hundred and ten Ye. Years. And so there's a lot of mythology official history told by the club is that the members saw a skit as a part of a larger play. And this gets name was never was and never will be another king like me, and that character was a zoo king and decided that they were going to go as Zulus themselves. And so the original king wore a crown made out of a lard can and he carried a banana stalk as a sceptre if you come to New Orleans lot of people tell you that this was seen as black people in the mocking. Rex Rex is the so-called king of carnival, and they are white elite of of this city. And it takes a lot of logical leaps to get from mocking white people who think of themselves as royalty. By putting on black makeup or black face. Whatever you wanna call it. We should make clear that this is not all white people who are putting on black face or who are wearing this kind of makeup black people as well. And and in fact started to start exclusively with black people. But the crew is now integrated has been integrated since nineteen Seventy-three. So now, not only are you having black people wearing black makeup or black face, depending on what perspective you share on that question. But you also have white members of that same organization doing the same thing. It is. I think the only situation this country where you will find white people presenting themselves as such and not too many people making a fuss about it. This year marks the seventieth anniversary of perhaps the most famous Zulu king taking his place on the float. That was Louis Armstrong. He's from New Orleans. It was his childhood dream to. Become a Zulu king and that happened in nineteen forty nine. It was his crowning achievement was crowning achievement. He took a lot of flack for that including from prominent other jazz artists like Dizzy Gillespie, and he pushed back against it that sensibility that really being Zulu king and being part of this tradition is a point of pride. Where's that today? I think much of that still persists is interesting to me that last week a. A small, but vocal civil rights organization. Call take him down Nola, take them down Nola was a very vocal and visible presence. During our recent fight over confederate monuments just last week. They protested outside of the Zulu social aid and pleasure clubs headquarters and judging by some of the reactions I saw on social media. And some of the reactions were out there in the scene that protest is not. Well, appreciate it. So I still sense that there is a lot of pride around Zulu to answer your question and a lot of defensiveness about this is New Orleans. We do things differently in this are traditions, and I should say, I don't know any black person in this city who hasn't it probably at one point or another gone to Zulu parade or or tried to muzzle the way up to the front to get coconuts. Something that everybody does is certainly something I've done in them. I'm sure I'll do it again future. So is not as I sense it a call for the organization to disband into discontinue parading, but to consider the imagery that they're using. And to think about if this is the imagery they want to use going forward. Jarvis. Barry deputy opinions editor of the times picayune in New Orleans. Nice to speak with you thinking same here.

Episode 135 - Two Men Walking in the Woods

"The following program is produced by the talk radio network. Hey, this is Mike Nelson from mystery science theater and rift tracks dot com, and you're listening to the greatest show on the planet. Tech talk radio. Welcome to another episode of tech talk radio. I'm Justin lemme. I'm Andy Taylor. We have the show that talks about computers technology, the internet in the I T I O two. Yeah. Of course. Yeah. The for those that don't know not that means internet of things. Yes. It's like your IP cameras your Amazon echo, Google home. All those things are all your smart fridge. Your what is that? The smart toaster writes, those jurors more microwave. Yeah. I, you know, when they first heard the term internet of things, what is this all about they because honestly, when I think of things I think of stuff that stuffed in a drawer next to my knives and forks in the kitchen, you know, you throw stuff in there and everything else. But really it's a Hodge podge of technology that all tends to blend together. So I don't know. It's kind of would does that work. No. No, I I guess a Hodge. But I haven't heard the word hodgepodge in the time. So yeah. A little older. Through those words, we have in our vernacular. You know, we'll we'll pull that up. Yeah. I still can't believe I used vernacular. Dude. You gotta stop with the vocabulary. Okay. I really. I gotta tell you. I just got schooled by somebody just a few minutes ago. Because of the way I taxed when she says that I use voice text all the time. No, no. Well, this time I was I was actually typing and she said you were you text in broken sentences. It's texting, you know, the whole point is when you get a text, and you read it don't expect a Shakespeare novel. You know, don't don't expect you expect. This is a word at explains something you asked what I was doing with my cat. And I said, you know, I'm just hanging taking care of the cat while my daughter is moving that whole bit. But it was like because she said, well, it was a run. It was a sentence. It was fragmented. I couldn't understand it. A God the grammar police, right? Did sometimes it's like a little overboard. It's like, you know, what I intended. And that's the thing when you write a letter to somebody. Yes, you should do your best to make the letter flow as nice as possible. To be easy to read. But I think in the world detects. I think we have to it's quick it's fast. And that's that's way. You know what you're doing? I saw something funny once on on the internet. If people somebody was saying like, I wonder about the people who type the letter you instead of why oh you or they type LL instead of laugh out loud. I wonder what they do with all their extra spare time. You know, somebody should do some math and figure out how much time in over a year period. Do you save by typing LL or elevate? You like instead of why? Oh, you actually. Okay. So we were talking before the show and Justin had me busted up down the thing. We can't repeat these because they're jokes. But there's that we could not say on the air. I mean, what was the last time? You heard a good joke. Well, I'll be honest with you. I gotta tell you my own morning show partner. Berry you remember berry berry semi-linked the other day. And he said I forgot about how good this bit was. And I thought what is it? So I pulled it up, and he knows I'm a big huge fan of Peter Sellars. I always have been. I mean, I was raised on the goon show, which was British comedy. You know, spike Milligan, and Harry Seacombe and all just Peter Sellars tryst. Great comedy funny stuff, and it was a bit. From the Dean Martin comedy show. Dean, you savage show. And it's got Dom deluise. It's got Peter Sellars. It's got nipsy. Russell who always was hilarious. And then of course, Dean Martin makes an appearance the later on in it, but they're in a barbershop. And if people wanna look this up, Peter Sellars barbershop on YouTube. It was some funny comedy jokes that you don't hear nowadays that are kind of like over the head maybe a little blue. But over the head to the point that they are just smack dab in your face funny. And the thing is where do you find good jokes like that? It's it's kind of a lost art to be honest. I mean, you don't really hear. And he got me growing up. I mean, I was hearing some jokes. And a lot of them were like dirty jokes for my dad and stuff like that. Right. Which at the time, I never understood until I got a little bit older. I'm like, oh, that's. I've got a couple that are actually, you know, family not really well, family friendly. I guess I mean their radio friendly, right? Let me let me tell you one of them. Okay. Here we go. Here's one what can think the unthinkable? Oh, wow. That's more of a riddle one can think the unthinkable the and. Nope. No the iceberg. The second right? Yeah. All right. How about this one? How long does why don't why don't kleptomaniacs enjoy puns? Because they're always taking things literally. I mean, this is like stood up dad jokes in a way. But they're funny. You know, the power of a joke though. It's just amazing. Well, there people can find jokes depending on what their and you can go online, and you could find it. But read it which some people get a little freaked out about read it ready. It has a whole section on jokes. Right. Oh, yeah. There was a threat just a couple of days ago on the ask read it thing is what is the funniest joke, you know, by heart. And honestly, that's what I'm scrolling through right now is I'm seeing these and a lot of them are ones that you know, we can't tell on the radio, but there are some really good ones here. Oh, this one's actually this one. I hear this one is actually rated I think they said it was rated the funniest joke in the world. Whoa. Really cause because it can be relatable to any type of culture or any type of race. If you translate it properly. It's it's worldwide funny. So to hunters are. Walking in the woods when suddenly one of them collapses. Okay. So the other one calls nine one one and says help I think my friend died own hill. So the operator says, we'll I you gotta make sure he's dead. So the guy walks over and you hear a gun shot in the back. And then the guy comes back to the phone and says okay now what? That's great. Yeah. Yeah. There was a guy. Tell you one more. Yeah. More yet. Good Sherlock, Holmes and doctor Watson decided to go on a camping trip. Great after dinner and a bottle of wine. They lay down for the night. Go to sleep some hours later homes wakes up and nudges faithful friend and he says Watson looking at the sky. And tell me what you see Watson says while I see a million stars. Yeah. Well, what does that tell you? Well, Watson pondered for a minute. He says well astronomically it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets, very disaster. Astrologically I observed that the Saturn is in Leo horror logically. I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three A M theologically. I can see that God is all powerful, and what we are small and insignificant and meteorology I I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you Holmes Holmes was silent for a minute? Then spoke Watson, you idiot. Someone has stolen. Our tent? So I mean, this is the kind of jokes that people forget about, but you know, what you hear him again, even though you may have heard him years and years ago you hear him again. And they're funny. I'm hoping that somebody listening right now is in their car, and they're just laughing. And you know, they pulled to section thinking about a joke, or they're laughing at our jokes that we're telling and they pulled to an intersection and people are looking over line. I wonder what's so funny. Yeah. Or maybe they'll be laughing too. That's even better for us. But that's true. Yeah. If you have a funny joke, you wanna share on the show, whether it be a tech coke or not feel free to send it to us. Email it to us Justin tectonic radio dot com. A why why are you giving? My Email address out was giving your first gentleman or Andy tech, talk radio dot com. You never done. We might even share it on the show. I gotta tell you though. I was read it is one source. I know Twitter sometimes you could find some good jokes services. We and some people don't know how to use Twitter, but you can get on there. And you'll you know, you're on your page, you go to the little search bar, and you put hashtag, and you could write jokes. Yeah. Hashtag jokes. And you'll you're going to get all kinds of things when you're looking for something like say, you're looking for a specific show. You like television show hashtag. I'm just gonna say it only because I watch it ninety on say. All right. So I know sorry, but you can hashtag that in the thing is you can actually have an experienced tweeting while you're watching the show seeing the comments, and it's almost like you're watching with an auditorium full of people that have comments they wanna make about that. So whatever you're looking for you. You wanna hashtag recipes you can find those as well just Pinterest is similar to that you can do searches for interest. And they do have some joke sections on Pinter's. But if you need a quick laugh, that's good. But I do want to recommend doing recommend that the Peter Sellars video I felt down the rabbit hole while I was doing that. And what that means that's term, if you get on YouTube where you get on any social media pedia when I fall. Fall down the rabbit hole on Wikipedia all the time. So you get online you go to search for one thing. And next thing. You know, you're watching, you know, five hours later, you're watching a video on baby hippopotamuses. Yeah. And that happens you start you start to research, like a cell phone technology, or whatever. And then ten videos later, you're starting to watch videos on like nuclear physics quantum physics. And you're like how did I get here your brain swelling the whole bit? But I I've watched started watching this thing about Peter Sellars. Then I was watching interviews. He gave and had no idea that the man was a mad, man. He was a madman. I mean, they got to the point Blake Edwards didn't interview. And it was was talking and they were saying that you know, he didn't have a personality that he could jump into that was his own. He was characters like all the time. And you see some of these interviews, and you could see what they're talking about that, really. He he couldn't center. So there was a guy, and I just found out about this. And I know last week we talked a lot about movies, but there's a guy that made a movie, and it was in the hired Peter Sellars for the movie, and the movie was never released because Peter wanted out of the film, so bad. So he's finally made a documentary about his experience. Now, the trailer for the film is online. It looks amazing because they're using real footage not actors like the Geoffrey Rush film, which was the life and death of Peter Sellars. But they're using. I mean, Peter sellers, Harry seek them the people that he worked with the directors. The crew the whole bit about this movie, and how terrible it was to try and make but the documentary looks super good it's called the it's called the ghost of Peter sellers. And hopefully it'll make its way to the film festivals. And we'll end up getting to see it on whether it'd be Hulu or Netflix or one of those services. Don't speaking of movies that we were just talking about last week. Week. They had the Golden Globes. I I didn't watch the Golden Globes. I really honestly, I really don't really care too much about award shows. However, I am very happy to know that the movie that I highly recommended a few episodes ago, the bohemian rhapsody, which is the story of Freddie, Mercury and Queen that won best picture drama, and and Remmy Malik who played, Freddie. Mercury one best actor in a drama. Just amazing. He did an amazing job. And honestly, I really hope now I mean, so I think like next week. I think it is going to be doing critics choice and after that, then we have the Oscar. So if they win and Critic's choice, there's a really really good chance that Remmy Malik and siemian rhapsody is a movie may end up winning best picture or and or best actor, and I really think Romy Malik deserves the best actor kinda have if I don't know like Rama which a lot of people have been talking about is the movie that's on net flicks. And right now like for us in Tucson you can. Go to the Tucson lav. Cinnamon watch it on the big screen to film from Afonso Courant. I believe different boards on the Golden Globes. Didn't he? Yeah. And I mean, he's an amazing director, and he's taken this film. It's black and white. And he's telling the story about life in Mexico as as a as a kid, and it's something we'll say, it's a very romantic film about somebody's young life people like the film so much. They say see this movie in a theatre seeing a Netflix is great but seed in theater, so I think that movie may end up doing well at the Oscars. Now, the author is going to be announced on the twenty second of this month ceremony will be held in February. So we'll see I hope I hope Romy Malik does really well in it. I mean, I know I'm pretty sure he will get nominated if he doesn't that'll be a surprise. I'm pretty sure he's gonna get nominated. But I mean, he is going to go up against a lot of really good actors and stuff for the best actor. But really, I mean, it just it was amazing to see him. Did you see booking me? Oh, yeah. I did. And. But I be honest with you would like to see when the Oscars for best best actor Burt Reynolds in the movie the last movie star which is available on Amazon prime number one. It'll be the last movie he's ever done. He was supposed to be in Quentin Tarantino's. Once upon a time in Hollywood, but he plays an aging actor who decides he wants to go to this film festival. He's been invited. And it's really honestly a film about Burt Reynolds, it's not about this actor he's playing he's about him. It's it's about him. Yeah. And the last shot of the film. He looks right into the camera. And you you almost can tell it's his last film. How he he does not look like Burt Reynolds who you remember in the seventies and eighties. But he the Burt Reynolds at nor MC Donald used to do on Saturday Night Live. Yeah. It's not like that. Not like that. Okay. So, you know, we're having fun talking about this entertainment, a big part of our lives. Big part of your lives you watch. Whether you watch network television. You watch Hulu or Netflix, of course, the Consumer Electronics Show going on this week as well. And that's big. So there's been a lot of a lot of talk about some of the different ways that entertainment is changing. And this is the way you're gonna watch stuff the way you're going to experience stuff I up we're going to go over some of the announcements that have been made so far at the time of recording. I will tell you one of the things that has been talked about is Sony would there eighty five inch eight K television. That's ridiculous. Right. It's ridiculous. I mean. Yeah. Okay. Cool. You can do K, but nobody is ever going to be first off. It's not available to buy. But I mean, there's no content. There's barely any four k content. Yeah, we're still starting to see that roll out more. And then. Yeah. But starting go to well if people go to buy the four. Okay, DVD players, and they're they've been used to for a long time buying DVD players for forty dollars fifty dollars, and they get into the store, and they go wait two hundred dollars for this four K DVD player that's going to play my four K movies. And then they go maybe I don't need that. And they just end up watching four K Kahn or whatnot before take content. They might get that if they have apple TV before K or or the net flicks for K that whole bit. But generally, you know, most of us are are really fine watching a movie that is that is ten eighty p. Yeah. Exactly. I mean, I've seen four K. I've seen the difference between four K and ten eighty p with one particular show at a friend's house who could switch back and forth between ten eighty p and four K. You know, the screen obviously flickers and has to refresh to go back in eighty. It was amazing. It was amazing. It was like lightened day. Some people don't like the whole experience of that Christmas that because they say, oh, it feels like you're in the movie some people don't like that. Because then it detracts them. From being a somebody who's watching the movie, it has a different experience. But like television shows do that sometimes where you see the content. You're like, wow, the videos, so brilliant on this and then even in action films like Terminator two I think is one of the first ones I saw in ten eighty p Blu Ray that whole bit. And I remember thinking it just felt different felt like a different experience so on around. Well, you know, another thing that happened at CS that they just talked about Google, and I'm a big Google fan, Google pixel three and all that does it work it out for you. I love it. I love the phone. Yeah. Great phone, but Google made a lot of announcements so far and their biggest thing that they're talking about is how they plan to take on Alexa. And and it's a tough one. It. It really is because Alexa, the Amazon echo or Amazon echo with Alexa, built in Google trying to take them on with Google assistant. So what they've been announced so far what they have announced so far excuse me. They. Have some third party integrations integration? With the dish hopper. Right. Dish being satellite. Tv confirmation at Google. Assistant is coming to Sonos speakers a kitchen aid smart display Samsung television, integration, better Philips, hue integration. Car products like lighter adapters with the assistant built into the lighter adapter while also there's another new feature boarding passes on a system. So soon as you get your Email assistant will give your boarding pass a new interpreter mode that translates automatically. So if you can just be like, you know, say the keyword. Okay. Google, and then and then and then somebody talks, and then it will translate it for you oughta medically better auto reply in punctuation when you reply with messages with your voice and in here is the big one. This is a Trojan horse that they kind of released what according to the verge the Trojan horse is they are going to bake the Google assistant into Google maps for iphone, so iphone us. Can now use Google assistant via Google maps. Which is crazy yet with as how they're they're. They're basically taking a shot at apple sane were coming into your to your echoes feel you basically would not have to use a seri- interface you'd be on notable and just go using that the whole time. Yup. Pretty much. Well, it sounds like yours one you missed that. You did not mention that. I have to ask what in the heck is this thing what the instant pot instant potholes. Instant pot is the the pressure cooker right while I have no idea what it is. I just started hearing about it last year. You've never heard of an instant pot. No thought it was a crock pot. That's why this called instant. It's a pressure cooker. I just thought it was a crock pot. That's all you thought that was announced at CAS this year. We'll know what they have announced is Google assistant. Oh, support for the instant pot, smart WI fi pressure cooker. So now, they're going to have an instant bond. But if things do we really need. Yes. I mean, you really think we need that. Yes. Why? Well, because if I want to do some pressure cooking in, you know, I'm at work or whatever I mean, everybody does pressure cooking on on a daily basis on always told me when you leave the house turn off those stern. Here. How do you realize you being sarcastic? But my mom always told me when you're cooking. You leave the house turn off everything. But now, we're well people know cookers yet, we're telling well, even then I was always nervous about that. Well, yeah. I mean, I'm not nervous about a slow cooker. But I am nervous about a pressure cooker because they can I mean, theoretically and radically, but they can blow up. I mean, they have in the old pressure cookers take your head off. Well, I mean there is that dude that was in the the TV show. The this is us, right? He died with a pressure cooker. Well, no, it was a crock pot with a bad coral. Was it talk pot? Yeah. It was a pressure cooker crock pot with a bad cord and that got everybody that works at crock pot. All upset. Yeah. No. I really did. It really did know. But I we recently there's actually last week. My mom was here. We we. We started the pressure cooker. And then we went out for about an hour and a half. And we thought it was like is it is it safe to leave the pressure going, and she's like well, just as safe as if we were at home. I mean, we're not touching it. And if it's going to blow up it's gonna. Blow whether we're there or not we'll get hit with fire extinguisher. Well, I don't. We should give the guidelines on that. But now, it's smart wifi. So, but that's what it's made for if they've got the smart fridge Jewish too. I do like when we had John on sitting in for you like last year John had said he'd got one and his wife could be shopping and on the smartphone. Pull it up and look inside the fridge and see what they had. Yeah. This way, how many trips have you made to the fridge and opened it to see if there was something you wanted to know even more how many ships have you made the store and you're like gosh. What did I forget? Yeah. Exactly. I'm just thinking from the snacking purpose. I just go nap. There's nothing there. I want. Now, I saved myself a trip and gotten less exercise. I think eventually, yeah. No, you're right. I mean, but I think eventually we're going to get to see fridges that have you you can program your fridge. They're gonna come with pressure sensitive areas bridge that's a good, and you're gonna put your you're gonna put your items one at a time on each of these pressure sensor. Pads? And then you're going to tell it what it is. And then when it detects that the bottles low, it's automatically going to add it to your shopping list, or whatever I mean, like think about it. You could have you could you could type it in be like, okay? This is catch-up and the expiration date is five nine twenty nineteen. Well, if it detects that the ketchups getting low it's going to add it to your shopping list, or if the ketchup still there and the expiration dates reaches automatically going to light up that pressure sensor areas, saying, hey, this items expired, or or it's low, and it will add it to your shopping list. I think that's where they're going to end up going with it. We'll take it. And I'm just gonna take it right now aren't anybody invents this and put us in fridges? I get ten percent royalties. Everything you did not like the idea the sensors. I think that's a great idea. But we're seeing smart fridges. We're seeing smart microwave posters is. So basically, you could set up your oven. They're going to have it. So you can have your oven setup. And it can be like, you know, keep it. Nice and fresh. And then boom it'll kick on at five. So you get home at six, there's your dinner ready. You know? And again, that's the way technology is working the one thing we've not mentioned yet on the show. And before we take this break, we have to it did happen. It has been announced at the consumer electronic show twenty nineteen. Oh. The colour smart commode. The smart toilet is here. Ladies and gentlemen. And I'm not I'm not kidding you. You know, what it's been in Japan for the past decade. They have had that kind of technology. They're having dude all technology like this is coming from Japan. They've had it for the past decade. Right. Well, now, we're finally getting a here where you can you can voice it'll be integrated with a voice assistant like Alexa, or okay. Google flushed. My poo. Title the show right there. We got the title. There you go. But no, I in it also will have other features like lighting. So when you walk into the bathroom, it will light up. I think they're going to work at cleaning routine into it. So no more have to clean it. It'll have that feature built him as well as a seat heater. So depending on the amazing if you live in a cold climate, right? Well, imagine the ambient temperature it can examine that and always warm it to that your your desired temperature. How perfect is it? And you know, people laugh that in Japan said they've had in Japan for that part of it the heat the heated seat. Yeah. And the automated cleaning it's been around for like twenty years. So what would you rather have the smart fridge or the smart commode? Probably the smart fridge. Smart fridge. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I can deal with a manual commode. Can I tell you a quick sort of you? Can I tell you? I moved in Japan. Okay. I have my very first house in Japan. But I didn't know what a day was. Okay. I didn't know what these buns because they're all in Japanese like I go to my toilet. And there's a control panel. This would have been great video. I oh gosh. I really wish I would have got on video. But I'm like just imagine I'm leaning over looking at these buttons. And I'm like what does this do? And I press one of these buttons. And all of a sudden this little want shoots out the wand comes out, and I'm like, ooh, that's cool. Right in the face. I got sprayed right in the face. And I'm just like. And then I look around. I'm like, okay. Is there anybody here? And I'm like, no, I'm the only one in this house. But I was so embarrassed. But yet I had to stop his laugh at myself because I'm like that would have won me a hundred thousand dollars on America's funniest home videos, where it would have been a good one. Now for those listeners that are thinking, I might want this technology you want to check out colour K O H L E. Our it is stuff. We may not see this year. I have a feeling we will. I think they're going to get this to market pretty quick. Probably we have the fridges. We have the smart homes all of those other things. But one of the focuses of is here is not just to make products that are smarter. But have these products all together? I mean detailer I'm Justin let me you can find us on Facebook at Facebook dot com slash tech. Talkers. We'll be right back Bobak detect talk radio. Thank you for hanging out with us. I mean detailer I'm Justin lemme, and you can find us on the web at tech talk radio dot com. If you've not discovered that yet, I gotta tell you kind of what we've been doing though. Because some of you may have come to our blog in the blog was gone, and it was down, and then it came back, and it was it was all goofy. Well, now what we did for a more than ten years. We've had the same hosting provider and one of the one of the better companies that is out there doing it one of the largest, and you know, it was good. But if it's just getting to the point where it was like there was cost after costs after costs. And I don't know. I just didn't feel like even though we were with them for a long time. We were on a plan that was that even being sold anymore, but they always gave us the support. And so, you know, somebody told me listen that company is great for domain names. They are one of the best for domain names. If you're looking at hosting there's too that you want to try, and so I had already experienced one of them, and that was one and one and I thought okay and the other one hostgator. So they said give hostgator a try. So I I have not been on a C panel. That's something. That's you. Him website stuff. And so we went ahead. And we I just I bought I actually bought it the hosting about three months ago. And anytime, you do anything like this Justin, you gotta kinda planet out and strategize. So, you know, had to go in back, and this is what I want to recommend this to everybody. If you have a blog site WordPress blog any kind of CMS type of site back it up and backing up frequently. There's nothing wrong with that. Because it's not like a website where you have a page you upload your paid. And then your pages there, and it all links to the right things and the whole bit. With WordPress or a CMS, or, you know, they call him, Jim LA and some of these other ones, you know, it's all database driven and the database in as basically telling it what you know, what what color to have what template to have what you know. What goes here? What goes there? If you don't have that and your hosting provider loses your site or something happens. You're not going to get it back. If you don't have a backup of that data for all that work. So you you have to understand we've had our blog since two thousand seven well, there's been long periods of time where it hasn't been updated slick was doing a lot of stuff with it. And then he just kinda any just kind of stopped. He didn't he wasn't doing anything with it anymore. We we've let it go. And then we brought it back, and we'd let it go. We brought it back. But that was the biggest challenge in moving everything not only that we're now complying with Google's new thing. We've got a we've got a secured an actual secured website now, so at least within SSL certificate. So that was one of the things we did. And then, of course, with the blog, we've we've gone ahead and fix that. It took a while though. And I had to do it in steps if you don't do it in the right steps, not go come out. Right. So it's back, and hopefully, I gotta tell you. We are we're on the look for content while we only have certain amount of time. Justin works a lot. I work a lot. We're always looking for content. So. You know, I'm I'm a little hesitant about some of these companies that want to well, hey, we want to write for your blog. But it it turns out to be a big ad. So I'm really serious. I would just want. I want content for people who are passionate about technology and and doing some stuff. So, you know, we're not making any money off it, we do it just to provide it as funder. So that's that's what was going on with that. But tech talk radio dot com that is the website address. And of course, there's other places you can find us. You can find us on Facebook at Facebook dot com for sized tech talk. Tacos, you can find us on Twitter at tech talk radio. You can find us on Google play. Apple I tunes and spreaker and breaker breaker too. So when on there, and we're gonna we're gonna explore some other ones too. Okay. Now, I've got something. I gotta show. What what is the one of the biggest things that people have been talking about on net flicks? For the last what last month and a half. What would it be a union talking about the Marie condo? Now. What is marine condo? What is that? What is that Rekondo? She's a Japanese lady does a lot. Yeah. I saw the ad for that tidy up there. Trying to pitch that. What what is that that's a show about people trying to reduce their space? Yeah. Basically it says. Well, I mean, yeah. It's a lady comes in and analyzes a family and how they've organized their home and tells them how to organize it better. To relieve stress to bring functions way, I guess you could say into the home of that's more of a Chinese term. But she's she's like a rock star of home. Organization. See I'd rather watch the other way, I'd rather watch the flip side of that. That would be harder. Absolutely love that. So. You know, what I would like to see I'd like to see Marie condo versus the hoarders. That would be great watch your walk into a place with full stop. And be like what do I do? You can fix it burst. Okay. So so no the next big thing that that is on Netflix that people talking about obviously, he's per box. I'm not gonna watch that some people have asked me they said what what is it about? Okay. So bird boxes. Get Sandra Bullock in there. And she's where they're wearing blindfolds. Because the thing is it's like a monster movie. And if they take off their blindfolds, and they see this creature that apparently they shot for the film, and it just was so bad. It was so hokey they ended it out. But it made it scarier that was smarter. That's why jaws you hardly see the shark because it really didn't look that good. But it made the movie scarier, so they're all blindfolded. Well, I found in a blind. That was saying you couldn't see I have found the audio equivalent to bird box. No, no. And I swear I will tell you here. You may just want to do some. Some bit very bad bad bad things. Please don't alright. So so here, this would be the audio version of bird if you haven't heard it or. Oh, please. Oh, man. Okay. So this is a song from South Korea. I I don't know. I don't know if it's China's three I don't think it's got the. Please stop. It's killed baby shark. Listened to that tonight for an hour straight. If you get my kid wanted to listen to it over and over and over again, who you know, the crazy thing is somebody listening to this show might be thinking. Well, wait a minute. Is this show three years old? It's not we're just late to the party. And I don't know how how did I've known about this for like five months now, I have not I and I. Today. What did you didn't hear that? What did you say? I just said your old. Thank you. I was in the studio today for some reason there was a story about this thing. And I'm thinking, what does this baby shark thing? And I click on it, and I'm staring at the screen, and I'm thinking, this is just pure torture. I had no I never heard about this before one point eight million gave the thumb down four point nine gave the thumb up. I mean, it's for kids. I it is. It's the baby shark song and kids love it. I can't I don't know the story behind it. But I've heard and I guess I can't really prove this is true or not. But I've heard that this was just a simple family making a funny video, and I believe the kids in the video are brother and sister allow and now they put us up on YouTube, and now they're millionaires because there's so many people watching this video on YouTube paying them. I mean, I think they're actual millionaires. I don't even know if that's true or not. Yeah. That'd be a professional studio. I. It's really well done. What? Beginning of it. It says it harming something pong, ping. Obviously. He I don't know. It's. Pink pink Fung. We'll have as close like. But it sounds. It sounds like a Korean company. Yeah. But pink Fung, I don't understand the history behind him. When you think about it? The most two of the most irritating songs of the world have come out of South Korea. Number one that one the other one was that. Oh, it's a children's. Toy company to all the probably tell you something wrong dot com. Right. And it has the same logo and it says pink Fung adorable prince from a planet starry with boundary boundless curiosity with pink Fung Everyday's, a new adventure, the pink Fung brand represents the content. We help we make to help the children explore the world ranging from short songs too, long animated stories as well as the toys and books during what you've done is. You've just ruined every I worked at Disneyland for the longest time and small world was the thing that you never wanted to catch a whiff because if you did forget, it it was it was in your head. I'm not kidding. I was walking up the hallway after hearing this song. And I'm like I can't this song in my head. This. This. And I mean, I know we're a little late to the game on that one. But seriously, it's it's for some reason making some kind of a resurgence this week. So this is okay. So I was wrong. When I said, it was a family making a video because obviously it's not but look at this. I mean, this is their content. They have four thousand different videos. They have a hundred and fifty million app downloads. They have over ten billion YouTube views and seven hundred thousand plus sound books sold while they are a pretty decent sized company. Well, I know there is a video I do know there's a video that is online of a little girl. Trying to talk to Don. Alexa, the Alexa, and she's trying to get it to play that song. I don't think she ever got to play the song. So that she did. She just exceeded ordering like ten thousand dollars Amazon. Dad's gonna be like, right? How boy that's crazy. Yeah. It's a it is a it's a very addicting song. And I really honestly wish my Dake. My kid's daycare never showed it to him. Because now all he wants to do is listen to that song. You know? That's that's kids are though, you know, before the tablets, it was the television. I mean, my kids my daughter were when they were growing up my sons, they would they would watch Disney channel, and they put it on the, you know, put the VHS tape in the machine, and it would they've watched it. And then they watch it again. And I watched it again, you wanna we didn't catch it. The first time. But that's the way kids are true. Yeah. They just want to watch it over. They like to experience it though. So I mean, that's kind of a great idea. If you're a tech company to develop something that's going to be it's a great idea for YouTube because every time well every time they watch it. And they want to watch it again. And again, it counts as a view for that YouTube channel. Yeah. That's probably why they've honestly what what what was that video that video on YouTube has would you say it was I wanna say it was two billion Mambi two million billion. It's that's probably two billion views with one hundred thousand kids. Okay. And now, I've just added to it. Yeah. I mean, Eric watched it eight times in a row before we had to stop for a while. And then he wanted to go back and watch it again, we watched it another twenty times in a row. So now meets in our walk around going do. What's so funny about it? And he's like I had that all set up ready to go on the screen and adjusted is telling me look at my Facebook page, and it's him you were kind of playing around with with letting them play it. And you just this look at the camera. It's like, oh you poor man. Wait a minute. I was just about to show them that. Yeah. So one of the other things I was just about show you though, that you know, obviously with CS happening this week. There have been announcements that continue to come at us and one that we didn't mention in the first segment of the show is something that Samsung is doing and I love this technology, and you're the one like would you get this is this something you would really consider getting get. I'm sorry. One more time. Do do do to song. The what Samsung unveiled its. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. If I could afford it. Sure. Yeah. I mean, it's a huge TV how big is how big is like every year every year. It's like it's like let's put out. Let me big. I can't wait wait hold up. We take a break. We come back. We'll tell you how big this television is and why you might want to have it in your living room or roge or or backyard or build a whole new section to your house. Exactly. That's coming up. I've Andy Taylor. I'm justin. Let me find us on Facebook. Facebook dot com slash tech. Talkers. We'll be right back. Welcome back to tech talk radio. I'm justin. Lemme. I'm Andy Taylor. Thank you for tuning in, lots of talk coming from Las Vegas more the Consumer Electronics Show put on by the consumer Technology Association. Of course, we did not go this year. I I know that slick got registered. And so I don't know sometimes he'll end up finding a ride and he'll go. And so we don't know if we'll have coverage from him. But I mean, there's there's just a lot going on. We had a lot of friends that were going out there as well. So the news just keeps. Coming five G is one of those things the other is, of course, it every year. It just seems to be you know, it's a different trend different fat. But last year was virtual reality artificial intelligence and robotics, and then you've got the big TV's. And then drones were big. I remember when we went remember when we went back in twenty sixteen drones were the thing that everybody talk time without now, again, it's all drones AI and an televisions. Did you see the story about the tesla model s it was a it was an Thomas tesla model s now is driving around getting ready when they're getting ready for the show, and apparently one of the robots from a some other company ended up like going into the road and the autonomous vehicle hit it? Basically killed. I think it was a big PR stone. But you know, what either way it was fun. It was irony. Total irony. I was going to say, yes, a little irony. Are you? So tell us about this television that Samsung is going to be putting out well lead just put it this way. They dubbed it the wall. That should tell you. How big it is actually it's two hundred in nineteen inches corner to corner two hundred nineteen inches. That's pretty big. Yeah. So what does that inches to feet that would be two hundred nineteen is eighteen point two five feet across while. So it literally is the wall. And it's a micro LED TV, I guess I'd be means. It's there's no back light. It's OLED, but it only uses red green and blue pixels. So it can deliver true black. But it also has very bright colorful, according to digital trends who was there looking at this. The also state that it's a modular system. So the idea is that it can be assembled in any shape or size that you want. But as a conventional TD sizes, go Samsung went and surprised everybody there with a seventy five inch variant. Which you know is still a pretty decent sized TV. But they also did the two hundred nineteen inches the wall. Now, I under amazing from what I understand on the smaller, seventy seventy two seventy five inch seventy five screens, you're going to be able to actually take these. And the way that it's designed there is no like seem on level. There's no Bevill on it. So I mean, it's just pure screen. You can actually take it and actually connected to another. Let's rained who's a modular. Yeah. So that's what they're saying this modular. So suddenly, you're going to have this huge screen. Yeah. I mean, that's that's a great idea. It really is. I mean, we've we've seen video walls for for decades now, but they've always had a Bevill on it and the Bengals have gotten smaller and smaller. But now what they're showing here is that there is no more rebel. I mean, you can just put these together and create a massive, you know, like, I said eighteen point two five feet diagonal wall. Tv. And I believe obviously, I it doesn't say here. But I'm pretty certain this is a four K television. I don't understand why they would make it not four K, you know, being so big now, I don't they don't I don't think they have released a price point for this. I honestly think this is more like a prototype. I mean, you're not going to get this unless you're a millionaire. I was to see us one year and me and Jim berry God rest his cell, Greg. Great, man. But we were we were both standing in front of panasonic's booth. They had on display with one hundred and two inch screen. We're just beach us. We're just a little both looking at it was like, well, where would we put this where we what was it like an LED? Was it wasn't a projector right now. This was back in two thousand one essay two thousand seven okay, be two thousand eight and Panasonic was their big thing. But the thing is when it came to the price point on it. Nobody really say what the price was. Of course, not it was more of if you have to ask the price you can afford it. And that's what I was just gonna say. Yep. Yeah. If you have to ask you can't afford it. Yeah. And you know, some are saying that this would be a pretty good environment to have a say at a at a venue if you were a business. This would be kind of neat. You know? It'd be good selling point. Yeah. But not only this. I don't want to give you know Samsung with the wall TV all the credit here because there were other manufacturers that did release a really good amount of new TV's L. For instance, they at least an eighty eight inch right? Eight K O LED right now AK is not even. I mean, it's it's like a it's not even out. I mean, there's no there's not even content for four k right? Let alone K. So but they did release a stunning again. This is Cording to digital trends. Stunning. Eighty eight inch eight K O LED. Also Samsung released a ninety eight inch eight K Q LED TV LG also premiered, and this is for anybody thinking about this. This is great for space saving LG also put out a role -able. Oh, LED TV. So basically, you have the stand and sits on top of a table. It's got the speaker built into it the whole bit. And then when you hit a certain button, blah, blah, blah, the screen comes up and raises up out of the stand. Well, I mean, it's it's, but it Kerr it's curled, oh, this is actually rolling out. So the interest footprint on top of the table is rather small interesting. You know, what these big gigantic TV's you. Remember, your mom would tell you get away from the TV you get get them. Get yourself one two hundred thousand nine inch TV's you're gonna have to move you Cleveland. He. Yeah. I mean in our house we have a sixty inch upstairs. Kind of our main TV, and, you know, sixty s and we have a mounted on the wall of high. So it's it's pretty far away. But you know, Eric, he loves to just walk right up to the wall and to sit there and stare at it. You know, my wife's like, hey, Eric, you know, get back get back. I remember growing up laying on my stomach in the live Uram your member. You remember getting color television back in near date. And I do I we had we had a we had a black and white Packard Bell television might have been a filled co and it it was on this cart, and it was like kind of a wobbly cart. So that way. And this is where it all started. Really? I mean, you could watch it and living room, and then you could wheel it into the next room and watch it while you're having dinner around the dinner table, which might my dad does love techno well technology TV's back, then there was always something on not like you don't have cable. I remember we got on TV, and it was like the world changed. You know, suddenly it was with on TV it was like a subscription service, and you had more. Than channels to get two four five. You know, you didn't have six seven thirteen and eleven and this is we were just outside at Los Angeles. But we would sit there, and we'd watch he's black and white shows and you loved them, and you accepted them, and this was great. It was good. And then at night, the TV would go off you get I sometimes I'd like to wake wait up just for the star spangled banner, and then the speech, I slipped the surly bonds of earth in dance. This guy's laughter silver wings. You don't want to talk about they would do a little video. And it was a poem written by a veteran, and they would show planes flying and static. And that's when the engineers which what you do. Now, what the engineers we're doing the radio station of fine tuning and tweaking for the antennas that were out there. Yup. Exactly crazy stuff. You know, you still we're still seeing stuff about audio coming out of some of the big shows, of course, as we talked last segment, you know, a couple of segments ago, it's you know, your assistance, you've got the pots the pods all that. They're all going to be every. Things to be embedded with the the devices and internet of things I o. Okay. So big stuff. Also in the world of gaming like huge stuff. I think one of the biggest stories that came out this past week is the people who have been making the game destiny. You know, what happened with him is what bungee right? Yeah. Bungee was a part of Microsoft, then they split for Microsoft did their own thing. Then they got they kind of partnered with activision. Well, the big news is they have split from activision, and they are going to be developing the destiny series on their own and many people are very happy about that. A really? Yeah. So what does that mean for the destiny series that just means that now it's heavily read them more freedom completely in the hands of bungee? You know, the actual developer the people who have the whole visual as the here's the thing. A lot of people don't understand this. And I guess maybe I don't really quite send a to what is the actual role. All of the publisher. So you've got the developer. You got the developer who actually makes the game. Right. The publishers are the big guys like EA activision Ubisoft rate, Microsoft, Sony, the publishers, what does the publisher do are? They simply just financing the developer. They're getting a games out there doing the marketing. You know, they're they're deciding what to include in the they may have editorial rights when it comes to the game. Think about think about a book publisher, you write a book and say your publisher is. I'm trying to think of the mouse Random House or any of the big published to they're out there. They will publish it. And they will go ahead and get that book out get it to as many store pain for their their financing it. Yes. But they're taking a bigger cut of the money. Yes. Sure. Yeah. So you know, that's part of the deal you developer sugar. Daddy. Yeah. We're gonna we're. Yeah. Exactly. We're going to deliver this game to you. And you write a check, and we'll pay all the programmers all the coders all of that stuff. And here it is. Here's our final game. So that's the role of the publisher when it comes to gaming. Okay. Put. Here's the thing. It seems like more and more often. Now, we hear all the bad stuff about the publishers. We hear all these times where EA EA sucks EA's as destroyed. This game EA is done. This not so much with activision or blizzard or whatever we'll activation is blizzard now really, but mostly it's like EA. And I think what it is. It's like they're trying to take too much control over the developers. They're saying, basically if I get this, right? They're basically saying, okay. You want to publish your game? Cool. Here's a billion dollars. But you're going to do it the way we want you to do it. If the developers says, well, we want to make this kind of cool game. They're like. Yeah. Well, now see we wanna make this kind of game. Yeah. Don't gonna take your idea, and we're going to bastardize it and make a totally different game. And then you're going to do it for us because we've just paged as money. Also, don't forget we've got other games coming out around the same time, or we want this to fit into our timeline. So it needs to be ready by this time. Oh, yeah. Yeah. We went we want to put this in. Well, you're not gonna have time to do it. So just deliver make it happen. Make it happen. Exactly. And that's when people get bugs in games and games come out. They're not finished. Because the publishers like, I don't care what your timeline is make it happen. So some people really a lot of the gamers out there that like the destiny series. And then we saw what destiny to come out, and it was free. And it was like what what does that do for the folks that bungee you they want to see it being sold. They want to see it being a success. Well, I think. I think destiny to coming out free is is it was by designed from bungee because they wanted to get people hooked on destiny because they knew they're going to have a massive expansion that was just about ready to drop and they thought okay. How are we going to get people to play destiny? How are we gonna people to buy the expansion? Yeah. They're going to say, well, if we don't if people aren't playing destiny yet, let's give them the base game for free. And then we can charge him for the expansion because honestly I picked up destiny to for free because I've never played it before. Now granted I haven't played it yet, even but the just the sheer fact that they said, hey, pick up destiny for free. And then if you like it you can pay us for the expansion. I'm like, okay. I'll do that. Right. So that's probably what they're going for is. They're going for people that they weren't gonna play destiny to begin with. But now they offered it for free. They're like, okay. Sure. I'll give it a shot. Yeah. Yeah. It's probably much much of the case in that one. But it's still it just seemed seemed a little off in the way that you know, because there was a lot of. With the destiny series. I mean, I had the game for awhile ended up giving it to my daughter. I know that she up -solutely loved it. But so again, you know, that that is the thing that's making lot of gamers, happy the other one Nintendo switch this week. Couple of new games for Nintendo. Switch online for those that do play with the switch and not you might want to get it for this Zelda to that is out Zelda to why. Yeah. Four. Online. Oh, the online so the old Zelda to. Okay.

What to Watch on Netflix

"Netflix is current business model seems to be to throw enormous amounts of money at anything and everything and see what sticks a lot of their original series are outstanding. But most of our movies seemed to fall short today. We'll be talking about what we think you'd be watching out of the thousands of options of original programming on Netflix. A world where your friends and co workers don't understand your movie or TV obsession. Obsession where you just want. Someone anyone to share your binge watching watching it, Shannon and FEDER are here for you. Your wait is over stinger starts now. Now. Hi, everyone. I'm shannon. And I'm Faye. Drew, welcome to stinger TV and movie podcast. If this is your first time here, we're glad that you're here. We invite you to hit that subscribe button and give us a five star rating before you even listen to the episode just do it. That's how confident we are. But if this is your forty third time here. That's right. This is episode forty three. We welcome you back and we're excited with what we're going to talk about today. Absolutely. Should we dive right in or do you have any chitchat? Let's see chitchat it's spring. Finally, it's going to be like seventy degrees today. And I just feel like I have been trapped inside all winter, which by the way is. It's a good thing for people that like entertainment. Yes. Yes. And you're gonna laugh because in two days, I'm going skiing. Oh. Roll along the winter. I'm a big fan of winter. I like to prolong the winters, so we're going to Lake Tahoe where they've had events amounts of snow and from what I understand it's like February out there. That's funny because deuce probably like four or five years ago. I took my one and only trip to Lake Tahoe. I was invited by car company, and they gave us options of some activities. We could do while we were there, and it was like, I think ice skating downhill skiing and cross country skiing and cross country skiing. I could do that. No hills involved. Oh, right. I know it's supposed to be like hell on your legs. It's so hard. But I said, yeah, I'll do that. And this was in January like the beginning of January, and they did not have enough snow. It was. Yeah. And there was no snow because cross country skiing stunt at lower elevations. And. So sad news. I ended up having to spend a day in the spa at the Ritz Carlton. Also, sorry that was my consolation prize. Yeah. Car companies do a lot in two hoax. It's so gorgeous out there. But they're weather does fluctuate, you know, some years there's nothing, but this year, it was just like feet upon feet upon feet of snow just hammered, and it was still snowing a couple of days ago, actually. Wow. So I am very very excited. Okay. More power t's, not my thing. I'm ready for spring. But what did you tell me what you've been watching our, right? Well, I did have some travel the past week. I went to Vegas. So that was a long flight from New Jersey. And I got to watch a lot on the plane. Ooh. Yeah. I watched turn up Charlie with Idris Elba. Now. This is an ethics original. Which is what we're going to talk about today. And you know, we both love Idris Elba. Like he is sexiest man alive. All that. And he's really a good actor. And I think this show was his baby, and I feel a little bit like it was him playing out his fantasies. That's kind of how I felt about the show. It's about oh, should I be getting excited? I'm no not that. Unfortunately, there wasn't the those a little kissing, and you know, sexy stuff, but not much nothing. Nothing too exciting. But it's about a washed up DJ and how he's trying to get his fame back, and somehow, you know, blah, blah, blah, he ends up being a nanny to this little girl daughter of a friend of his friend who happens to be music industry. So you know, and throughout the show he's kind of like riding this line between being a good guy and kind of using people. And there's a lot. There's a lot of characters. I mean, there's the friend the friend's wife. There's the daughter there's the friends wife's manager and there's him, and there was his aunt, and there's his friend, and I. The bottom line. It was eight half hour episodes. So a quick watch. It was fun. But I wasn't really clear who this show is about like, I feel like he was supposed to be the main character as Charlie turn up, Charlie. But I felt more that it was about the little girl. And she was a great actress, I enjoyed her a lot. But I don't feel like the show really had a clear purpose. And you know, I don't know that everybody needs to see it. But if you like interests Selbe, and you like kind of light drama dis, you probably might enjoy it. I feel like this is not my show. No. I don't think it would be your show. Okay. I think I think you would think it's stupid. Oh, I'll skip it then. Okay. Thank you for that. They hours. I'm getting to know you a little. But then I watched bohemian rhapsody. Hey, I had no interest in this movie. I know everyone was like, oh, it's best movie ever won all these awards and. Oh, what's his name? May look Rummy Rummy Rummy Malik Remmy Malik. There you go getting all the vowels wrong. You know, he won best actor Oscar for this. He did. Yes. He did. So friend of mine sought six times, you know. I was just like I don't I don't love Queen. I don't fix time. She did she sought three times in the theater and then three times at home since it's now. Yeah. I mean, I personally love Queen. Yeah. I I mean, I don't dislike them once. I saw the movie. I was like. Oh, yeah. Queen things this. Oh, yeah. They sing this, right. You don't really realize unless you're a big fan. I guess, but I didn't realize all that they sang. And I don't hate them. I was just never like Queen. You know, and I will just say this was absolutely worthy of all of the awards. It was a phenomenal. Okay. Just such a good movie, so emotional, so awesome. Is it streaming somewhere? Or was it on the plane? It was on demand. I. Pay for it. You're paid for it. Yes. I did actually my my son wanted to see it and my husband wanted to see it. So I guess they paid for it. But again. Yeah. And I was just I was honestly one hundred percent thinking I'm going to sit here in the living room with my laptop on my lap and just half pay attention. And no, no, it was so good highly recommend if you haven't seen it, even if you don't think you like Queen or care, very good, fun fun. Fact, did you know that Remmy Malik was actually in night at the museum? The the most recent one I forget it was like night at the museum three. It was like the little Egyptian guy. Yes. Yes. I see. It. I consign now. I love it. He's he's come to his own. Yes. I do like him a lot well van on the plane, which might have been a bit of a mistake. But I watched the dirt. Now, this is the motley Crue bio-pic right now. I know how you feel about hair bands. I was a huge humongous motley Crue fan to the point that I went to a concert alone to eight motley Crue and you flashed your boob by myself. No, I did not. Okay. I dressed really slutty. Probably I don't remember. But I went I went to that concert alongside couldn't find anybody. And that's how much I wanted to go, but big motley Crue fan, and I was excited to see this movie. And I'm sitting there watching it on my phone on the plane next to these strangers and like highly inappropriate. Okay. I mean, tons of full nudity sex in. Oh, really? I like flip by phone a couple of times. I was so embarrassed. Porn. That's how I feel when I'm on a plane. I'm like, oh, wait hold on. Yes. So my opinion of the movie, I will say. I don't think if you're not a motley Crue fan that you will like it. If you don't enjoy motley Crue ear knocking this is not a great movie by any stretch agitation. It is a fun movie. It's got a pretty unique style. Like, they kind of break the fourth wall. There's a couple of times where the one of the characters will turn and be like that didn't really happen. You know, like an kind of engage okay audience. So. Yeah. They tell motley Crue story way back to when they were teenagers before they got famous at all. And they they tell it from the narrow from the perspective of all four of the guys. So each one of them kinda gets a turn, and it, and it rotates it's not like, it's one guy than the next guy story. It's all mixed in. It's it's it's done pretty well pretty unique. But overall, it's just it's their story, and how raunchy and it's amazing that any of them are alive. Basically is is to is the premise of immorality, right? And their faces today. I really enjoyed it. Okay. Good. Yes. And then of course, there was triple frontier, which I guess we'll segue into what you're watching because we both will both watch that for our moody club. And if you are listening to our podcast, and you don't know what movie club is you need to join our Facebook group TV and movie discussion with stinger because once a month, we have a movie club think of it as a book club. But you. Watch a movie on your on time and then failure. And I go on Facebook live and talk about it and take your questions and your comments, and it's super fun. It is so yeah. Triple frontier, we talked about that was last Thursday and movie club. And we were both like, right? I thought so I think I liked it a little bit more than you did. Yeah. It's a military buddy movie. These guys are ex military people, and they ended up deciding to I guess do a heist seal money from a drug Lord. It's so you're thinking like morally, it's fine. You're you're getting rid of the bad guy. You're taking money that doesn't belong to him. And then, of course, greet gets in the way, and it all goes wrong. So it started Oscar Isaac and Ben Affleck had a pretty good cast. The acting was pretty good couple points that make you kind of roll your eyes as with many Netflix smoothies. Yeah. We'll talk about later. That was the only movie that I actually watch. Oh, I did see Dumbo from gerbil frontier to Dumbo that's sort of a weird. So I get invited to a lot of family movie screening. So I got to see a preview of this film before it came out. I can't say I was super excited, you know, Dumbo. I know I've seen the original like years ago, and I'm not even sure I ever saw Dumbo. Honestly, I I don't I don't remember if I just know that he's an elephant with gigantic ears that comply and he gets right. And he gets separated from his mother. And and I thought okay. Well, I'm definitely gonna cry in this movie 'cause animals and everything else, and it's a Tim Burton movie. So I was expecting Tim Burton style visual effects prepared for that. And I was expecting it to be sort of creepy because everything he does seems to be creepy. Yeah. It wasn't creepy. It just wasn't thing. Yeah. I think it looks like just looking at the elephant in the trailer creeped me out. I didn't. I mean. I mean, not interested, and I read, you know, some of my friends said they thought that the CGI was amazing. I thought the CJ I was super distracting, of course, because none of the elephants were real. I get that. They can't really have real elephants flying. Sure. But it just it did not work for me. The story wasn't great. The acting was so wooden. I was surprised because they had some pretty good stars in it. But I'm not gonna spend a lot of time on it. Because we did I did a review on my site. All things fade, drug dot com. We did or I did a sixty second movie review that we have on Facebook on YouTube and on stinger universe dot com. So if you wanna learn more about whether or not it's worth going to see or even waiting for streaming or DVD, some people do that you can do that. So let's talk TV because I did watch quite a bit of TV. I watched a lot of the away. So there are you? How far are you? Well, well, so the OA part two dropped on March twenty second. And this was. I said it at the time that the that the first season came out one of the best shows I had ever seen. It was just unique. It was creative. It had depth. It just an I thought Brit Marling was amazing considering that she co wrote it as well. And so I wanted to rewatch the entire first part. I watched it with my husband, and my son neither of which had seen it. My son's a little young. He's twelve but he he loves the idea of it. He loves the idea of this life beyond this life and yet dimension. So we've gotten as far as the first episode of part two, okay because we're trying to coordinate our schedules and get there. And it's funny because I've had friends texting me saying a I think I'm going to need a tutor for the seat. So I'm like go. Yeah. I can tell that already. We've watched one episode. My husband is watching this also because he he liked last part one the first season until the last episode, which he thought was really stupid. He didn't like the way it ended. So then by the end of part two episode one. He was like, okay. Okay. And my my husband's a very tough critic like you are, but well, listen, I already confused. Let me let me just stop you right there. Because the first time I watched the OA I did not care for the ending of the first season. The second time I watched it. I got it more it made more sense to me. Okay. So I'm just saying, okay. Your health are you into the second. I only saw the first episode to. Okay. I'm not confused yet. I mean, I see what's going on. We don't understand why. That's what's going on. All right. Well, let me just ask you one question. Okay. Girl that their search. For with the puzzle. Yes. Are we supposed to know who she is? She one of the people from yes bunker. She knows. No, no, no, no. They're searching for Michelle. Michelle was the transgender girl in the first season with the shave Ted. So one of the kid helpers one of the kids. Yes. Why not? Yeah. Shit. Now. I'm even more confused. I was like, okay. I thought I'm like all right? Well, maybe they're all jumping. And now they're searching for Michelle because she jumped somewhere else and net. Okay. All right. So this is really so far for episode one. It's really just an alternate dimension that they're in well, another we don't it's an alternate timeline. That's what we know. This is because what we're finding is. Sorry, if you guys don't watch the a, but because we're probably going to do an entire episode on this. Oh, yeah. But what we're finding is prairie has now jumped into the body of the the the life that she would have had had she not been adopted by nearly enabled Johnson. Right. So it's like an alternate timeline. How Machel fits into that time line? I don't know. How are the people? How are the five kids? We don't know if the Michelle that they're looking for is in the same time line. That prairie slash Nina is in we don't know any of that think about. Yeah. So they know man, you just you just don't think about it. Too much. Let's just watch it and they're opening a lot of questions. Yes. And we're going to see if they answered so anyways, super exciting art out the else what else would be watching. Okay. So we've been watching the gifted and especially after our last episode, and you said that you just really like that show way more than Marvel's runaways. So we've been turning it on and I've been it's one of those shows I said, all right. I'll watch it. And it's kind of in the background while I'm doing stuff and. It's like maybe every twenty minutes. I'll go away. What happened because I just cannot get into it. See that's how I feel about runaways. So we're kind of switched like we are. I mean, I don't love the gifted. But I definitely like I definitely holds my attention. Yeah. And then my sister came into our discussion group and dropped this bomb that she loves is not really a bomb. But she she dropped. She loved this show is very excited. Yes. AP bio, and I and I was like man someone was just telling me about it. And then I remembered was her. So I thought all right. Let me know. We don't have definitely don't have the exact same taste in shows, especially when it comes to comedies. And this is basically a sitcom I think it's maybe an NBC sitcom. Oh, yeah. So we're watching it on Hulu. And it's it's weird it, but it's it's Lord Michael's produced show. Okay. So not that that makes it a Mark of excellence. So I'm I. I've watched two episodes, and I'm like, but I feel like I feel like I'm going to watch more. And so I can have like a true thank opinion. Sure. It's not because it's not a serious investment of time or energy. Yeah. Yeah. And then the last one I'm not really gonna talk about much because it is a Netflix original. But I cannot say enough good things about after life with reheat surveys. Really is is it a series? It is a series. It is a I believe it's eight half hour episodes might be six. Maybe I'll watch it on the plane next week. It's short. Oh my God bring tissues. Do you will laugh, you will cry eight is just it isn't about? It's it's about a guy whose wife. Lisa dies from cancer. Oh, it's really funny and this show is six months after her death. And he's wa. Watching videos from her when she was alive kind of reminding him to go on with his life. And he basically is in the state of mind where he's like, I don't wanna live. So I, you know, I have basically decided that I'm gonna do whatever the hell I want Zeh, whatever I want do whatever I want because if it all goes to shit. I'll just kill myself which I was going to do anyway. And it's this just beautiful story arc. I just I just can't. It's so good. I'm excited. All right. All right so net flicks. Sometimes has some hits and sometimes has some MRs. Yeah. Yeah. And that's what we're gonna so true. That's what we're going to talk about today.

That's right. We anything you need to know. We created our own universe. Just for you. Full of original information. I'm trying desperately to segue here much like net flicks. And now we're going to switch to our stinger topic of the week where we are going to talk about what we think usually be watching in terms of Netflix originals. If you're living under a rock, and you don't know what net flicks is I know you probably do but just to remind you kind of the origins of net flicks. They started as a DVD rental service. I was an early user of net. Flicks. I have my little red envelopes. And in fact, I lived in North Carolina at the time and they had a nearby facility. So why would get movies within a day? It was super super fast. But they are in entertainment service that actually began streaming content in two thousand seven did you know, it was that long ago. I never really thought about how long ago was. But that seems right. Yeah. I mean, I gotta say I'll I just I love Netflix because they really have changed the way we consume entertainment. Yes. Absolutely. I mean, the big thing in the beginning with streaming content. Was that all these entertainment companies like studios, film companies or whatever they thought it was awesome. Because suddenly it was a way to generate revenue from old content that otherwise wasn't doing anything for them. Like, there's really obscure TV shows or movies, you know, normal you'd have to find a spot to run them at like two AM in the morning. This is people that are like, oh, yeah. I remember that release stupid gymnastics show make it or break it. I wonder if that's still out there, which that's on Hulu, by the way. But the concept of a Netflix original didn't start until many years later. So I guess it was probably two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen when net flicks started creating their own. Original programming at a Netflix, original is content. That's produced co produced or distributed by next Netflix exclusively on their services all right net. Flicks funds the original shows differently than other TV networks when they sign a project they provide the money upfront and immediately ordered two seasons of most series. All right. So it's a little different than TV where sometimes what they'll do like a pilot and nothing else. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. A lot of times studio, and we did a whole episode. We'll have to link to that episode where we talk about how that whole thing works with studios, and film companies and distribution rights and all of that. So if you want to learn more about that. But what Netflix does a lot of times is it will actually inject capital into the production of a show. And there are a lot that we're going to talk about that that have that have followed that exact model but most of the net. Lakes originals, they pay for the distribution rights to the finished product. So basically, if it's branded as a rigid hull net flicks has paid a lot of money. So that you can't watch it anywhere else. So this happens with a lot of British shows that that like are richly on BBC. And although that's gotta be confusing now that there's BBC America. But when when net flicks runs, it it just basically means that I guess other than where two originally aired? This is the only other place that you can see it. So sometimes it means that they were behind sort of the production of the show. Sometimes it means they've acquired the exclusive distribution rights to it. Right. Right. And sometimes they sell the rights because like net flicks wasn't available in Australia or New Zealand until two thousand fifteen or an India until two thousand sixteen so how learns yeah. So house of cards was actually. Sold to TV networks in those countries. Oh, yeah. So even you know house of cards was the first Netflix original series. And even that wasn't only available on Netflix because they sold it to countries. We're not flexible isn't available. I'm pretty sure that one didn't get shown in India. India has some really weird restrictions about what they can show in what's considered obscene there, by the way, you know, typically, I feel like we talked about this in a movie before that we watched. But but typically, they don't show people kissing really know that. Yeah. Yes. Yeah. And in fact, I think we Mark our podcast as explicit not because they're we get really super raunchy. But sometimes you've gotta say fuck once in a while. Right. It's right. So we Mark our podcast as explicit because we throw some language in there. Sometimes and I have read that marking our podcast as. Explicit means that our podcast will not be available in India. So if you are not in India, but of Indian descent be thankful that you are able to listen to. I'm sure I could say fuck you India, right? I'm sure I offended like probably an entire continent. Just there. But so you're right. The first original the first Netflix original was house of cards in February twenty thirteen I did watch that show. I didn't I watched the first two or three seasons. It's a really good show. I know what you're you're kind of show. I enjoyed it. I just didn't you know? It didn't suck me enough to finish. I think I watched two or three seasons to I loved it. Because it was just this ruthless world of politics. But what I liked about. It is a gave us a view into how dirty politics could be. And as I was watching it. I went at this is really how it happens. Oh, yeah. I bet this is how things really go down. And honestly, maybe wanna get involved in politics. What does that say about me? I don't know like it's so dirty in manipulative. And yeah, I think I'll do that. On but before house of cards. There was something that Netflix offered it was it was the first time net. Flicks offered what they called exclusive content, and it was a show called lily hammer that premiered on February six two thousand twelve and I bring this up because I watched this show it it was a Norwegian American television series. It was like a joint production starring Steven van Zandt. And he was basically like a gangster like a mob guy who was tried to start a new life. I I think it was like witness relocation or something like that. But basically he was trying to start a new life in the isolated town of Lula hammer. Norway, and it was an I remember it was one of those I would walk in the room. And my husband was watching TV. And I was saying what are you? Watching this weird. What is this show? Like, I could not wrap my brain around will. I've never heard of it. You know, where where was this show before? No it was. A Netflix show. It was something that they should. And it was weird. Because some of it was in Norwegian and some of it was in English. So it was very it was it was an interesting show. But yeah, that was kind of my first experience with I don't know when we watch. It was probably two thousand twelve that. We watched it. Okay. All right. I haven't heard of this. It's okay. I wonder if they even still show it, I don't know. So that was Netflix exclusive content house of cards was a Netflix original series, right? And the phrase Netflix original series leads most people to believe that Netflix had been involved with the creation from day one. But that's not always the case you've got a series like Santa Clarita, diet, and dear white people those are examples of series that net flicks ordered and funded. Okay. They were completely their own total clicks project. Yes about then you've got things like on break. Kimmy Schmidt and master of none that were created somewhere else. But then sold to Netflix. I didn't know that there's there's different ways that they do it. I mean in that makes sense because there's always people coming out with new ideas, and they're always going to sure they're going to approach net flicks. Maybe they're outside of net flicks. But they're going to approach them and try to sell them the idea. Right, right accents. Right. One thing that makes the Netflix original series. So great and wide ranging is the fact that they're happy to give directors and show runners kind of free rein over their series. So we see a lot of Netflix series like black mirror is one. And I think I think even the OA like some of the episodes will be fifty minutes some will be eighty minutes rail. And some of the networks are starting to do that like the walking, Dan and game of thrones are famous for that like you never really long. Yeah. You don't even though they're on AMC regular TV, the network, just, you know, slots in whatever it needs to and push everything else. To accommodate those shows because they're so huge. But there's there's a lot of freedom I net flicks. I think the other thing that's benficial is that when Netflix orders a series they order a series, even if it's just one season. So the writers get to tell a complete story. It's yes, it's not like can you imagine having a network TV show and then cancelling it like six episodes in. And you're like, wait. I was building up to something. Good. And you cut it before we even got there. Can we talk about the crossing? We can talk about crossing the crossing the crossing was a show that I loved on NBC. It was a one hour sci-fi drama with Steve Zahn who I thought was mazing and it was it was a mid season replacement. And I think I think there were supposed to be maybe I'm going to estimate the numbers. Maybe there was supposed to be fourteen episodes and NBC cancelled it after ten episodes or something like that. And I think somehow I don't know if it was from fan pressure and Nagoya. Or whatever. But they convinced NBC to let them show the final four episodes which was good because the writers of that show said we did have a story arc. So that the the finale will leave fans with a sense of closure. But it will still leave it open. If there were to be another season, which sadly there wasn't. Yeah. Yeah. And I mean, we all have probably had experience with shows that just ended, and we are just dying to know what happened. I mean. There's this one show that I always talk about. And it sounds ridiculous. But it was on like Nick at night or something crazy like Mike God, it was called twisted talking about this show. And there was only one season. And it was such a cliffhanger at the end of the season. And I loved the actors in it, and it was just it was a total teen drama, but I really really liked it. It was a cool story. And I'm still to this day bitter that I don't know what happened in twisted if you are in Nick. At night executive listening. Would you please do Shannon a solid, and at least let her know how it ended. We need a movie we need a movie like a better yet or a start one of those kick starters or something. Yeah, I'm sure that would really get funded. Go like we've raised fifty six dollars towards this project. Maybe if the writers of twist, you know, what you should reach out to the writers of twisted come on girl. That's not a bad idea. Let's do it. All right. But speaking about ideas, let's take a moment and talk about Netflix original movie. Yeah. Now, I have I famously. I think it's known around the world don't come up with the titans scale. Yes for you. Haven't you sat in a while for how we rate bad movies? So the titan was a Netflix original movie starring the chick from orange is the new black. I always forget her name. And I thought well, she's a star. You know, she's maybe this will be decent and some other guy who is a semi star. And this movie was so bad so bad that it was kind of the standard by which I measure, all other bad movies. Like is it is it five titan bad is at one tight bad. It was so bad. And I have to tell you. I have watched quite a few usually scifi movies. I watched I think it was called. I oh, yes. There was the one that we wash. What was that one called? Oh my gosh. I don't remember with the it was like an AI. Yeah. We'd scary opening. Yeah. I forgot the name of that. Oh my God. These movies cannibal? There's they're just so bad. They're so bad and. You know? So tell us why you think they're so bad tell me. Well, here's the thing. I feel like net flicks. Just like I said in the very in the opening like they just seem to throw money and see what sticks because they are clearly succeeding and have a ton of money and with these movies. I kind of feel like they just pick up these movies that are half baked and they never really fulfilled or put their potential, you know, and so you end up being likely yet that was part of that was good. I kinda liked it. The beginning was good. Or the end was good or the condo. Was. Good idea. Was good. Yes. Yes. It's kind of like, a maybe a movie, maybe it was a movie script that couldn't get any good names attached to it. Or maybe it's like it wasn't good enough for a cinematic like the ethical production. But it was a little too good for TV production. I don't even know if they do made for TV movies anymore or straight to video movies. So it's like, oh, they do. Okay. So it's. In between. And then, you know, it reminds me of the movie how it ends, right? I mean that was a really cool concept. I thought the acting was pretty decent in that movie and had some pretty good stars forest Whitaker. And that guy I don't remember his name. Yeah. Yeah. That guy, and then it just the way it ended. I was like what they're coming. There were a couple of high roll moments and then a total head scratch. And but, but it's like, you say, I would say, you know, the titan, you know, being one of the exceptions, well, actually, all the scifi movies that we mentioned being the exception there quite a few movies that you go. It was pretty good. But but it just, but it just wasn't there likely. Frontier. We were just talking about Moore. Right. Trae frontier could have been a good movie. They lost it at the end for me up. Yes. Exactly. Yeah. I wanna read something that I found on the website, screencrush dot com. They called Netflix original movies, cinematic comfort food, and here's I'm going to just. Read a little blip there. They pay television grew as medium, and in the last twenty years, we've seen the rise of shows that could compete with or surpass any film in terms of narrative complexity, but almost no one watches just watches television anymore. They watch television while they check their Email or update Facebook crew handy crush, so the more Netflix movies I consume in. This is the writer the more net movies. I consume the more I become convinced. They are being designed specifically with this audience in mind, but company knows these films are going to play at home to families with wandering eyes and not en- darkened theater free of diversions. So I think that is a very interesting point. I don't I don't see why that's an excuse to make a bad movie or a subpar movie. But I think they have a point that a lot of people will just watch movie and be like, yeah. It was. Okay. You know, I'll watch it while I'm on my laptop. Yeah. Okay. Listen, I do that. That I'm guilty of that. I do that with the gifted because I don't really have to pay attention to good guy, bad guy, whatever. But when you know, the if if what am I trying to say here, if producers directors writers rose to that challenge, they would create shows like stranger things like the O a where maybe you're on your laptop. And then you go, you know, what I better close this and pay Jackley. Exactly. Right. And I think that like most of the time even with bohemian rhapsody, which wasn't a Netflix movie at all. But most of the time when I'm watching something at home and less I already have experienced with it like it's Ozark or the oh a, and I know I have to pay attention. I will start out by just being like, all right? I'm going to see what this is about and not fully paying attention. And then all of a sudden you're like, oh, wait what? Hold on. Right. I need to write it really back cells. Let me focus. Right, right. My prediction is that the movies will get better. We've already seen like Sandra Bullock was in bird box. Oscar Isaac, Ben. Affleck. I mean, these are big stars right now doing Netflix original movies. So I think the quality is is going to rise because more and more people are going to watch it more and more actors are going to be interested in these types of roles, and I just think it's going to become more of a powerhouse. I think so too. I really do and some of them already actually have theatrical release like a yes frontier was I think it was like a one day engagement in the theater, which unlike paid agreed that why would you pay to go to the theater if you just like, I'll just wait two days, watch it. Yeah. And there's been a couple of Netflix films that actually have one like Roma. I mean, we didn't see Romo I started it. It was hard to it's tough. Right. That's what I that's what I've heard. But you know, some of them have critical acclaim. So it is happening. Right. It's not very just not very often yet. But I agree with your prediction. All right. So let's switch back to the things that we know and love so. Well, and that is the Netflix original series. That we think everyone should watch so Shannon, and I both came up with the top ten list and a whole bunch of honorable mentions. So we're going to go through the list some of them. I think we have some crossover, and we'll just we're not gonna go into too much detail because most of these you've probably already heard of. But we'll we'll try and make our case for you. Yes. Oh, my number one. And I did I did do mine in order. Did you do yours? An order. Joan. Not not kind of not kinda actually I could. I if I do one switch. I bet it is in order. Okay. All right. I mean, you know, it, let's do it. Let's all right. Okay. So my number one Netflix original series that everyone must watch is stranger things. And I think fajor you said this recently, if you're one of those people is just like, oh, I'm not gonna watch stranger things because everybody watches it. Just get over yourself. Right. Get over yourself. Who cares if everybody watches it? Don't you? Don't share the ending. This is your chance to go in with your, you know, pseudo intellectual opinion and be like, well, actually, okay. Right. That this is your chance to watch the show that all of America loves, and then you can go in and say, well, you clearly just didn't get it. So please just watch it. It's good, especially if you grew up in the eighties, and it's not it's not like a shove it in your face eighties. It's just it's such a fun nostalgic nostalgic in terms of the era, but also in the style, it's very reminiscent of like a poltergeist or. Yes, alien goes something like that yet and has two story. Fantastic acting. Yes. It's just all around awesome. Yeah. That's my that's my number one ever. I I second that number one stranger things. Excellent. Number two. I've got Ozark which we have a whole podcast about you. Guys. Ozark is stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney and. It is about a man who is a financial adviser and gets involved in money laundering, and all of the just incredible incredible things that happen to him and his family. It's it's fantastic. And that movie or that movie that show is all about the acting. It's just like the subtleties. The we loved it so much that when season two came out, we Shannon, we devoted a whole podcast. It's called Ozarks dirty laundry. Where we go episode by episode, and we kind of like dig deep, we analyze it. Our favorite quotes our favorite scenes. So it's really fun to watch. We did a season one recap. We did episode by episode for season two we will do a season to recap and then we'll pick right backup when season three comes out. So we're super excited that was probably number three on my list. I love that show as well. Awesome. Number three on my list is black mirror, which we also have a podcast about. Do. You see a trend here. Black mirror. Started out as a British show, and then it was acquired by net flicks. And there are four seasons, but they're very short seasons. And this is kind of a distortion, maybe not disturbing. But it is about the consequences in the near future of technology. So every episode deals with some sort of technology. You know, some of the ones we've covered recently as like they had these implants in your eye that show you everything that ever happened. Everything you've ever seen is recorded, and you can play it back or projected onto a screen, you know, and what happens to people when when this kind of technologies are available so black mirror. If you like any kind of scifi or technology type of programming highly recommend that this is gonna be on your list. Yeah. This is one of my all time favorite shows. I actually as we're talking switching things around. I list black mayors. Number two, black mirror is probably my favorite show, period. But it's number two on the Netflix original list. Just because I think stranger things started on net flicks. And it was unlike anything else, so I have to give that props in the number one spot, but black mirror. We love it so much every other Friday, we talk about one of the black mirror episodes from the first four seasons while we eagerly anticipated season five it's called black mirror Friday. So if you are a superfan. It's so much fun to talk about. And we also talk about how close we are to that technology and closer than you think. Yeah. I mean doing a little research I've been kinda shocked some of these things that are actually very close to happening. So. All right. And you know, we're kind of switching back and forth between failure. And I, but we're gonna put a post on stinger universe. It's gonna list both of our top tens and how this information for you. So you'll be able to find it there. My number four is Russian doll mound. This is just just came out like January right of two thousand nine thousand nine hundred February. Yeah, I love this show so much. I thought it was unique. The acting was excellent. I loved everything about it. I loved it. So this show starting attaches we own it was kind of her pet project. We did an entire episode dedicated to this because it's really like a mind bending sort of show and is super unique. I didn't put it in my top ten, but I do highly recommend it. Yeah. And if you think if you read the synopsis, and you think it's like groundhog day it is. But in way, more way. Yes. Yes. Yes. All right. So my number five is in. I had a hard time. I put daredevil. Slash Jessica Jones. Okay. These are the all allow it marvel. Thank you. These are the marvel Netflix originals the rest of the marvel Netflix originals, the other few don't you don't have to bother with really they're. Okay, they're good. But they're not as good as daredevil and Jessica Jones, and if I had to pick one I would go daredevil. Excellent show. It's obviously about daredevil the superhero, if you know anything about the comics and the characters are complex, they we then together, you know, like Jessica Jones's in daredevil redoubles Indus cajones a little bit. Jessica Jones in particular. I loved in it. It's again, she's a comic book character, but the series if you don't know the comics is about a woman with some abilities, and she is tormented by another man with abilities. And and there's a very. There's such a statement in Jessica Jones about women empowerment in about abuse. And all of that. So I don't wanna get like I said, we're not going to get too deep. But I'm just gonna leave. You those little thoughts about why you should watch. And I never watched any of them, and I'm a huge marvel fan ideal. You were just waiting for your son to get older. Yeah. No catch them. I know you will. Okay. All right. Got it. You will. Yep. So number six I put on breakable Kimmy Schmidt now the property just the first couple of seasons because after two or three seasons started to get a little bored with the same old same old on that show. I thought the latest season. I just yeah. I I haven't finished it either. No. But I remember watching it in the beginning of being like, this is hysterical. I mean, the actress don't remember her name to my mom Elliot's on Ellie Kemper. Okay. She's in the office. And I love her. I think she's just she plays. The part of the naive innocent like stuck in a bunker. And then coming out to the world twenty years later part. She's one of those people that I feel. Like if I met her in real life. That's how I would expect to riot. She's so good. She's so good. I just a funny show. I always told people go for the Kimmy stay for the Titus O Titus, right? Titus Andromeda, my favorite my favorite. But it did become a little overplayed by the time. I got to whatever season three four whatever it was. But yeah, very you. And I both don't like love love comedies. We're not like big fans of comedies. But this was one that I sat down and was like, I'm genuinely laughing. I left out loud that. Yes. So that's a extremely high outdoorsman for me. So it was this on your list at all. No, no other. Okay. So. My number seven is umbrella academy and I struggled with this a little bit. I wasn't sure if this is going to make the list, but ultimately did because if you watch the show you need to get through the first half of the season, you may watch it in the beginning. And be like, I don't get it. I don't know what's going on. Nothing's happening. The last like four to five episodes will blow you away. There's a serious payoff in that in that series. This has got to be on your list. Right. This definitely achieved a spot on my list. And I was very hesitant to watch this show. I heard a lot of mixed things about it. And like Shannon said I started it and went this is weird. I don't get it. Yeah. Characters weird. It just seemed a little too. I don't know contrived or whatever there was a lot of characters to there were a lot of characters, and it it is a little confusing. In fact, I told Shannon, we should do episode recaps for the show just because it's so confusing. But definitely it picks up speed. Very quickly. We actually all watched this as a family. It was so good. It was so good. I loved it loved the ending nice setup for season two, which I believe is on the way. Yes. Absolutely. Okay. Number eight for me is the oh a which we have talked about at length already. And I'm sure that's on your list. Of course. I think if we go back, maybe it was the end of twenty seventeen we did like our favorite movie our favorite everything of the year. I think it was the end of twenty seventeen we did that we did a podcast episode about our favorite everything and you had named the oh as you're like number one watch of the year. I I'm telling you, it is unlike any other television viewing you will ever experience. Yeah. If you like mind benders if you like to sit and figure out what's going on. This is the show for you. I think you have to have an open mind to watch that show. True. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah. So a lot of times you're going to be saying what the fuck, but you know, one of the things that I mentioned Brit Marling and her writing partner who has a name I cannot pronounce it's like potentially some weird name. They're writing team what I loved about. Brit Marling is she's an actress that decided you know, what if I really want the kind of. Roles that I want to play. I'm just gonna have to write them. And that's how earl-. Yeah. That's how she became a writer. And this was one of their big projects that they did together. And it's done really well, and I actually love that. It's taken them two and a half three years to come out with another season because there's got to be a lot of thought put into it. I super excited to finish diving into part two so yeah, gimme to love it. And then going onto my number nine pick another mind bender that we did a whole podcast episode about dark. Yes. Yes. This is a who was a German German original. Yes, it like like Netflix. Netflix had their hand in this one. So it was a Netflix produced original. But it was produced exclusively in Germany in German. So right that was very significant for the network, and it was one that I don't even remember why we decided to watch it. I don't either I really don't. I think it may might must have been on like one of our suggested lists. So reheard something about it. But you know, that was I think the first show I watched dubbed. I mean, not not ever, of course. But the first full series that I committed to and you could either watch it with subtitles and listen to in Germany or you can watch it dubbed which throws you off a little bit. You know in just the mouth moves differently, obviously. But it's not a big deal. And the show is first of all it's beautiful. You know, it is it's called dark, but it's it's dark like cinematic -ly. You know what I mean? Right. And it's a beautifully shot show. I think and just the favorite actually wrote a like did some kind of timeline or family tree that you did in the show. It was like a giant family tree because it's it's very confusing because you're flashing forward from thirty three years in the past. Yes and future race. Yes. And and they did such a great. Job casting, the actors in the past and the present that you're at wait. Wait who is that? What? So. Yeah. I did a guide for that. And that is definitely a show that is on my list to watch again in great detail. Oh, yeah. Maybe I'll watch it was subtitled. I mean, that's another one. It's been a while. Or are they doing a second season? I think they are. But we probably took her some updates. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. And then my number ten, you know, and I've got some honorable mentions too. So this is a loose ten, but I I'm going to say alias grace. And this was a one shot deal one series and the stories done, which I'm okay with that. If the story is done, you know, like some of these just need to add new like it was done is like it was. Yeah, it was and it was a like a historical drama. I want to say. Another beautiful TV Show TV series about a woman. Oh god. And I'm going to stretch. Now, do you remember the what the premises because I'm she was going? She was a woman up in Canada who was a housekeeper for someone and then was accused of of this horrible murder. And you're watching like there's no way she did that. And then by the end, you're like, wait a minute. Did she and that one was sure it was based on a true story? Right. Yeah. Right. So it's kind of like a historical drama. But it's yeah. 'cause it you wanna say it takes place in like, the sixteen hundreds or some no knows it was like late eighteen hundreds. Okay. All right. Yeah. I really I remember really enjoying that. It's been a while. But that went kinda just popped into my into my brain as one the got about one. Yeah. And then my few honorable mentions. The crown really good show atypical. We've both talked about that on our podcast. Yes. About a boy with he's on the spectrum. And how he decides the first season's bow decides he wants a girlfriend and he wants to have sex, and it's just it's all sorts of funny and very good acting in that movie series. I'm sorry. And then Santa Clarita diet. I really liked to I had to throw a couple of comedies in here. Because you know, I don't wanna be all like SCI fi. But Santa Clarita diet is is a is a drew Barrymore stars in it. She's great. And she plays a woman who is pretty much zombie and how she has to live her normal life, but eat brains. So it's cute. It's a comedy. I don't think I would like that show. I've never wanted it. You might you might not. I think it might be a little too cheeky for you. Okay. Yeah. Exactly. All right. So I've seen some trailers. All right. I'm going to run through my top ten because most of them, Shannon has already covered. And as we were talking. I'm like switching them around. Like, oh, I forgot about that show. Oh, I'm going to put this here. So. You'll see a wide spectrum of shows on my list because I like a lot of different things for a lot of different reasons. Number one for me, a stranger things for reasons. I already mentioned number two black mirror. I love that show. Number three the away number four Ozark number five the show. I mentioned just earlier afterlife. Yeah. I gonna download this on my phone to watch on the plane like immediately if you don't like this. I'm not sure that this podcast can continue. Wow. This is okay. Let me tell you something about this show. You watch this show. And it is everything I like in a show. Okay. It is like if you wanna know what what I mean. Like, I love black mirror. I love the way this show is me. It is like it's funny. It has heart. It's it's like terribly sarcastic. But it's beautifully written the acting. It just feels like you're really I can't say enough. Good things about it. Okay. I love it. Love it. I'm sold number six umbrella academy which we talked about. And I don't think we mentioned it's really a story about a bunch of misfit superhero ish type people, right, right? And I don't even know if you'd call them superheroes. They're kind of enhanced humans. That's kinda how I saw. Okay. That makes sense. It's but definitely the misfit part, and Mary J is in it. Yes. Like, we're really hilarious. You really? Hilarious. Yes. All right. So I gotta give some shout. Some shouts out to some true crime stuff. And I'll tell you why. So number seven on my list is making a murderer a right? I'm still watching season two. We're actually going to be dedicating an episode to the soon. Shannon won't be on it because Shannon, doesn't do true crime. But making a murderer. I think was I don't wanna say revolutionary, but it it was sort of groundbreaking in this true crime this documentary where it's really following. What has happened in a true crime case, and it kinda wrapped up the whole nation in this case of Steven Avery who was accused of murdering a woman after he had been wrongly imprisoned for many many years, and he's now currently currently has a lawyer who's fighting for his innocence. I haven't finished watching it yet. So, but it's it's it's not that. It's like, oh, it's so good. I just think that for the John Mara. It was a really important show. And then. Along the same lines. The keepers did you ever watch the keepers Shinno day? Not. No. So this show was about a murderer that a nun that was murdered in the Baltimore area back in the late sixties and the subsequent uncovering of some really heinous acts by the priests at a Catholic girls high school in the area. And I like I knew all of the places all of the locations in this show. There's a lot of stuff that seems to have here actually did a whole post on it. Because I visited all of these locations myself cool because I wanted to check it out. And it was just such a compelling story that really stayed with me long after the show number nine for me. I'm sort of reluctant to put this on my top ten list. But I did put it on my top ten list for the year. And that was lost in space because I did not love the first episode. I was not really excited about this show. But why put it on this list? Is because Netflix makes a lot of really great shows, but they're all four mature audiences. And so I think people are desperate for good entertainment that they can watch with their kids and lost in space was one of those. I thought it was well done. Yeah. As with many things that were plenty of I roll moments, but a captured my attention and were looking forward to season two. So I put I I enjoyed it. I just didn't love love it. But I enjoyed it. Right. Styling good and then number ten. Sometimes you just gotta watch some trashy TV. And that's what you is. I think you started kidding. I'm not kidding. I leave. You're putting this on your top ten really? I'm there. I very surprised because this is generally not your wheelhouse. I'd not it's not. But you know, what I know that we have a lot of women fans and women listeners, and I'm not saying just for women, but women eat this shit up in terms of what we think you should watch you made your list. Okay. All right. All right. Gotcha. Exactly. I know, but I enjoyed it too. I wouldn't have I know I cannot wait to watch the next one. So am I doing it? Like is it the most excellent show ever? Right Bill is it for intellectuals out there new? Are you looking for fun trashy TV? That's well-done. You got it with maybe I should give it another chance because my my. My daughter actually, watched it cringe. I know, but you know, I she's very mature for her age. And she watches a lot of stuff, and I wa- I usually watch a couple of episodes of anything that I think is questionable with her and see how it's going to go. But I just wasn't. I was just like there's a lot of sex in it. But yeah, I I don't know it was like suspenseful if you like if you like like good, psychological sexy thrillers about a stalker right kinda. Yeah. But but there's depth to it. Okay. Trashy? But it's good. All right. So for honorable mention I wanted to say the staircase which was not originally on Netflix. But they secured the rights to it. And then they added I think it was four updated episodes excellent show really got me talking about the case with people that are into true crime. I also put atypical on the list, and I also because these were early shows that I watched. I had to mention house of cards and orange is the new black because they were both pretty groundbreaking. Yeah. And I'll never forget I love to tell the story my mom who was like not really sure if she should watch. Netflix shows kept hearing about orange is the new black. And she said, yeah, I was thinking maybe I show watch that. I said how do you feel about a lesbians having sex in the shower what? And I said, look, it's not a show. It's not a show for you is not a show for you. So those are our top, you know, there's one sorry to interrupt. But there's one I just thought it was breaking bad. Netflix original. No. That was awesome. I think that was an AM. Okay. All right because that is one that I feel like we should both watch. But we'll talk about that another time. Okay. Yeah. There are people that call the best show they've ever seen. Yes. To each his own though to each his own. So there are a lot of great original programs out there. And there are some. Not so great one. So we hope we we gave you a little bit of guidance, and again on Facebook, this is where we're always saying like, what are you guys watching or I just finished this can you recommend something? That's what we're there for because we'll always get a lot of these ideas. Yes. You will always find someone that likes. Exactly what you like. Yes. Which is great. And so for our closing line. We thought we would end this segment the same way we began it. Bye everybody. Bye. I can tell I can tell the friends are here.

Dan Patrick Show - Hour 2 - Richard Roeper (02-25-19)

"It's all about me. Dan, Patrick gas. There is more where that came from click back for new episodes all week, log Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Brian Bruno live on the scene of a recent windstorm here to describe the event a chest of drawers, there's a storm howling outside. So I thought I'd stay in and watch a rom com. Five minutes into the flick, a tree branch slams through the window. Where are you hurt? I just gotta scratch on my chest. Your chest of drawers can't help you in a windstorm. But the guy go insurance agency can help you get covered for personal property damage. Call gyco to see how affordable homeowners insurance can be broadcasting from the Mercedes men K, Dan, Patrick. It's our to the program on this Monday. Dan in the Dennis Dan Patrick show. Recapping the first hour spend some time with Daniel Jeremiah NFL network analyst, former NFL scout. I don't know if it matters would Cuyler Murray measures what he weighs now. Maybe if the reports are true that he's up over two hundred pounds. He weighs more than Russell Wilson. Did when he came to the combine is far as height goes does it matter if he's five nine doesn't matter if he's less than five nine a little more than five nine is he going to run is he going to throw or is he just going there to do interviews. You got the topic of Antonio Brown. Where do you send him if you're the Steelers and does that limit what you're going to get in return because there are certain teams that they would like to send him to. But the question is are you getting a first or second round pick for him? And you gotta keep him out of the the grubby fingers of the patriots who probably went in Tonio Brown. You know, you don't want to trade him in the division. You don't want to trade him in the AFC you'd like to ship him to the NFC if possible, you know, here's a team. I was told about over the weekend. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I don't know if that's good or not. But I mentioned if I'm the Miami Dolphins I want Kyla Murray. And I want Antonio Brown because all of a sudden somebody cares about my team. But the combine starts this week in Indianapolis. We'll talk to Richard Roeper, the great movie critic from the Chicago sun times. He will join us coming up. We also spent a little bit of time talking about Robert Kraft, and what is going to be the fallout here if he is actually is this from an Rappaport. Yes, is this just the NFL's conduct policy personal conduct policy. The new NFL statement about craft. It doesn't say a whole bunch just basically reiterating what their policy our personal conduct policy. Applies equally to everyone in the NFL, blah, blah, blah handle this allegation. Same way, we would handle any issue into the policy, blah, blah, blah, seeking full understanding the facts. Okay. So there's nothing really headline worthy. Here. We will take appropriate act. Shen is warranted. Based on the facts Robert Kraft has denied the allegations here. In fact, he was out over the weekend attending an Oscar Sparty and didn't seem like he was too worried about these charges that are pending misdemeanor charges. And if you look at recent history with the NFL with owners and the colts owner jimmer say he was driving while impaired and was suspended. I believe six games find five hundred thousand dollars, you know, that might be what you know, Robert Kraft is facing here, and I can't hold him to a higher standard than I do the other owners, I know that he is considered to be on moral high ground when it comes to the NFL when it comes to owners, but I'm gonna treat him the same way. I do jimmer say and Ziggy Wilf Jimmy has lem. But if true, then he's gonna pay a price here. And I it doesn't matter the money. I think for someone like Robert Kraft the real punishment. The real penalty will be how he's viewed embarrassment because you can't put a price tag on that five hundred thousand to a billionaire that doesn't mean anything, but all of a sudden if people look at you differently than this great leader always referred to as Mr. craft. Always Jerry Jones is Jerry Jones in that. Interesting. Robert Kraft is Mr. craft always. Jerry Jones is Jerry Jones. Daniel Snyder is never Mr. Snider. Daniel Snyder, but Robert Kraft is Mr. craft Mr. Rooney, Mr. Mero. So we view certain owners differently. But when a Commissioner, and I don't know, you know, people think all the Commissioner is going to really go after Robert Kraft because you know, they've they've had a falling out there. I don't think that's the way it works here. And I don't think that you're going to have a personal bias here toward somebody. But I do want to wait see what else comes out. Do they have video? Well, you can bet TMZ is just waiting for that who's got the video how much it's gonna cost is somebody going to go after that video. If you have Robert Kraft in the act twice within a span of four days. Yeah. Polling as one is Mr. craft now, just Bob. You become Bob over the weekend. Be craft just the initial here. All right. Well, so we'll talk to Richard Roeper. I guess there was a little bit of a surprise last night. When you're looking at best picture for. I thought Roma was going to win it just because artistically everybody was in love with it. I tried watching it I got about. I don't know eighteen minutes in. I said, I just can't do it. Beautiful stylized. I have a short attention span. Green book. I did see I did like it. But there were people who had certainly in the black community. I had problems with this movie. A Spike Lee certainly had a problem with it because he was ready to leave. Black klansman was not the best movie of the year. So if spike spike was upset that green book one. But then you can't be upset at the academy for having green book is the best movie. But then you won an Academy Award for your movie like he can't pick and choose if they know what they're doing and not know what they're doing. But. Grammy Malik who played Freddie Mercury and the Queen biopic or bio pic, he was got the best actor, I didn't know Vigo Mortenson was going to win or not for green book. But another thing I'm gonna ask Richard Roper is how do you decide who is the best actor and best supporting actor because if you saw the movie green book, it's tough to tell who is the best actor best supporting actor, and it feels like that's just strategically labeled. You know, what we have a better chance of the movie getting some attention as the best supporting actor? Then maybe the best actor yelling going back to Bahim rhapsody member. For years Sasha, baron Cohen, the great comedian was rumored to be playing Freddie battery. And I think tapped out by choice. Do you think he regrets not being in that movie now because he seems like a guy could pull off anything? Well, he wanted a little bit darker and really about Freddie, miracle that was the reason. Yeah, I've okay from what I was told that he wanted this to look at Freddie, Mercury which. Me would have been a far more interesting movie little darker, little seedier. Yeah. Because of who Freddie Mercury really was and became. You know, this was more of a let's celebrate the music of Queen which I'm all for. But I think that that he wanted to do it that was real more to real life of Freddie, Mercury. Yes. He. Yeah. That movie had a little bit of criticism when it came out are skipping over huge portions of his life are important things. Yarmuk love I read a story last night that the surviving members had a huge influence on the script. They seem like they were half heroes of the movie. I kind of see that. Yes. The surviving members of the band, and, but when I you know, when they were casting that I thought Sasha baron Cohen would he would have killed it. I really believe that he would have. But I think that he wanted to make it more in line with who, Freddie. Mercury really was instead of who he became this. You know, obviously, legendary frontman, and you can make the case when it comes to bands rock bands. He's on the short list of greatest frontman ever. And you can put Jagger there and Robert plant up there. But you know. He was he was he was everything that you thought. And then some so you could combine Gaga Bowie. Elton John like you had sort of that combination combo platter. When Freddie Mercury got on stage. And there was nobody like him. Plus people always said, why didn't he change his teeth? He was worried about his voice changing if he changed his teeth. Because he had a severe over bite, and you'd see that in the concert of back in the seventies was at Live Aid where he was there with one hundred thousand people Emily early eighties. Yeah. Okay. And you know, you see the side angle, and he has this severe over bite. But he didn't he didn't want to change it. He was worried about changing his voice. So we'll talk to Richard Roeper coming up the Bryce Harper situation still fluid, and he may come to the realization that oh what was me? I've gotta take three hundred plus million dollars in play in Philadelphia. I was also looking at the highest slugging percentage at citizens Bank park where the Phillies play minimum two hundred plate appearances. Bryce Harper has the highest slugging percentage in Philadelphia, including other Philadelphia Phillies minimum of two hundred plate appearances Bryce Harper is number one on that list at five sixty four slugging percentage. I don't know if he wants to play there as weird is that is that sounds I don't know if he wants to play there. Let me see NFL combine starting this week. Maybe an Tonio Brown gets traded eight seven seven three DP show, Email address DP, Dan, Patrick dot com. Get your phone calls. Lebron James calls out the younger players on the Lakers. Because they in fact, you have that Seton. Here's LeBron calling out the kids because they have to understand a sense of urgency as the Lakers lose to Antonio Davis. The the pelicans without Antonio Davis over the weekend last year's everybody. So accustomed to the the losses that I'm just not accustomed to. I'm not Cussing to our never get comfortable with losing. So, you know. Those in game one the Houston. It feels the same way as losing game fifty nine in New Orleans for me. That's just I'm building. So I am all right. You know, he say to these kids, you know, his teammates they got to be a sense of urgency. They don't know what they don't know. But I I think LeBron should try to understand what they've gone through their all in LeBron's come into town. We're ready to learn from the master, Mr. Maguy, and then all of a sudden, Mr. meow wants to trade, Daniel, son. And then you go L. No, that's not going to happen. Now. Go back in there. And let's fight for the common cause of making the playoffs got understand where where would you be as a twenty four year old if the greatest player in the game once you traded? And then now wants you to fight on his behalf to make the playoffs. And oh, by the way, you probably won't be here next year. I mean, I just think you have to be fair to the situation. Yes, they should play hard. Yes. You should want to make the playoffs. But this isn't on them that they don't understand the sense of urgency. They understood urgency right bef-. For the trade deadline when you were urgently trying to trade them, they do understand that. But I was shocked when they lost. I I was obviously more shocked at the rockets without James harden beat the Golden State Warriors. I was really surprised there. But you know, Chris Paul and Clint cappella back, but yeah. Watching the Lakers against the pelicans villain, Anthony Davis. Yeah. Like, oh my gosh. Yes. He publicly owning the Lakers. Like, this might be the best thing. The pelicans have done team. It might be the most successful thing. They've accomplished. Yeah. Because that's just completely destroyed the team for the season. Yeah. They did. Yeah. They did. And the rockets went up fifteen nothing. It took them four and a half minutes Golden State to score at all coach career after the game said I need to do a better job preparing our team. Well, that's an understatement. But you know, they don't care about the regular season. They don't and that that proved me and makes me nervous. Sometimes when I watched this that they. Do it on and turn it off. They're capable of doing that. And I don't know if there's going to be a real challenge to them. But you can't take too many nights off postseason, certainly as you get towards the Western Conference finals. Yeah. Mclovin. Can we pay a little tension to the east? The Celtics got their butts kicked by the bulls. Which means my Sixers of my bucks. I feel like the east is now. Interesting Celtics you have to teams. Well, Kyrie says no, we don't there's no need for us to worry. Because the Celtics have me. Well, they had you and they still lost the bulls. So yes, relaxed guys I'm here. Yeah. Got a triple Darby weekend. Saturday seven thirty eastern Tottenham hosting north London neighbours arsenal than Sunday Fulham facing. Chelsea that's the west London. Clash at nine zero five and eleven fifteen Liverpool continues its title chase as they face Everton. It's a race to the finish beginning Saturday morning at NBC s couple of phone calls in here. Let's go to John in New York who leads us off this second hour. Hi, john. What do you have for me today? Could you? I have a worst in best go in that order. Okay. The worst was I think I mean beat from Rochester, New York. I think behind very understandably uncomfortable this weekend stoop. Hey, we, you know, again, understandably, but the best was I don't know if you saw it this girl from Arkansas hit the forum cycle for home runs, and she did it in four here to run Dinger three run Dinger and a grand slam. Yeah. That's amazing. And she did it in the first four innings for first Ford bats solo to run three run grand slam. Pretty good. Let's see Chris in Memphis. I Chris what do you have for me today? Hey, dan. Good morning. Six to two thirty five. Before get into the Robert Kraft saying this one for your listeners out there. I'm not set up that send anything for me Friday. But I love all the songs. Somebody needs to do Elvis Presley. Love me tender. I think that'd be a great one. Okay. The Robert Kraft thing. Yeah. I agree with you. I think that we need to wait here. All the facts about it. You know, I'm sure with this place. It's in. I'm sure they have a agreement that you have to sign. This is a privacy. You know, he may be in there for some kind of ailment. He's got I mean, I think we're all a lot of people may be rushing to judgment. I'm totally agree with you on waiting to hear the facts, you know, but everybody has to have a hot take. And you gotta label Robert Kraft. Thank you, Chris. I don't know. I mentioned that I talked to Robert Kraft before I've been at his house a couple years ago for dinner, but I don't know him. But I I'm not going to issue a blanket opinion on Robert Kraft based off of this. And if he's guilty of this in it's a misdemeanor like the bigger picture and. All of this is we'll focus on Robert Kraft, but not sex trafficking. Like that's a Betsy prevalent problem in the world, and Robert Kraft, Robert Kraft, getting arrested brings more attention to this then great, but as far as misdemeanor pay five hundred thousand dollars, the embarrassment is something that you can never pay to get rid of. And that's what's going to see that. That'll keep him up at night. I think if he's guilty of this if he's guilty of this and then the Commissioner will probably come down hard on. Yeah. Now, if I'm a billionaire with a helmet, I think we would agree win should be looking at the mayo clinic or cedar Sinai in L A or Mount Sinai in New York. I don't know if you go into that little place in the mini mall of Jupiter, Florida. If you've got some kind of condition with that kind of money in your pocket. Thank you, Matt in Pennsylvania before we take a break. Thank you. Six three one sixty. Yeah. I just hope this Robert Kraft story has a happy ending. Thank you. Anyway. You're welcome. So I wanted to further the conversation on the mclovin would say by by a pick pick. Yeah. Quaintly toity use it that way, I think Led Zeppelin when make it great great by OPEC. And a hidden gem would be a guy Allen Klein who managed both the stones and the Beatles. Yeah. That didn't go well with the fetal 's because they he was their accountant and accused him of stealing. I think that led to the break-up. Eventually, I think that Paul was on one side and the Beatles. The on the rest of the Beatles were on the other side with this this Allen Klein gone. We were discussing least bio pickle bands or artists where like let me say break. So so. The band that. You would have no interesting a bio-pic much, no interest in that things are going just fantastic. There were no trials and tribulations. There is no drug arrests. There is no whatever it's smooth sailing. So these are the least desirable bio pic bands of Alta, people mentioned Bob Marley would be somebody. John Denver was mentioned as well. David bowie. I think would be a great bio pic who plays them. Benedict Cumberbatch mclovin Edith, mclovin. Wow. Wow. That was shot. One of Jonathan Rhys Meyers had an order to kill this Bowie. Impersonation that Todd Haynes two thousand nine film gold mine plow. Okay. Touche? Do you think Hollywood, you know, Hollywood is just like sports, you know, it's a copycat world in like, hey, we gotta have got this. Then we got to do our own. Now, we'll do another bio pic like they got to get to a point where they go. You know, what I don't think we could cause there's an open John bio-pic? I'm now, I don't know when it comes out. But if you start to go down the list of who would you have as bio pic, right said, Fred. The authors isn't going to know what to do since they give everyone of them a nomination. No matter who it's on. Dr Richard Roeper. The movie critic he'll join us coming up. Also, how do you decide on best supporting and best actor or actress or actresses how do you do that? Because it felt like in green book you had both of the main characters were main characters there. And I I would have thought Ali would have been the best actor category over Vigo, but didn't work out that way. But the the movie certainly benefited twenty after the hour. More phone calls coming up best and worst to the weekend back after this. And the Dan Patrick show every car comes with its share stories, right?

I'm so so thinking about this when it comes to the NFL combine so Cuyler Murray big deal Robert crabs going to be a topic of conversation. We're in Tokyo Brown goes, oh, by the way, levian bell is still out there. Does anybody like when somebody make a move for lady on bell? Feels like not any you know, you're looking at the running back position again. And what's the highest rated running back this year in the draft? You're gonna have a running back drafted in the first round. Josh jacob. Yes. It's alabama. I think that's the only running back who might have a first round grade. Also, here's something I just found out over the weekend. At least one quarterback has been selected within the top three picks of the first round in seventeen of the last eighteen NFL drafts. The lone exception 2013 EJ manual taken as the first quarterback at number sixteen. Overall sounds like a stat of the day to me Seton. Stat of the day. We had of the day. Ahead of the day stat of the day comes that what status? All righty. The least bio pic -able band of all time is what we're talking about. What's the basis for this? Doesn't mean they're not good or talented. It actually means they could be both those it could be a great band. Great artists. But they kinda cruise to the top and things are going very, well, there's no drama in their line. Okay. With the I was thinking about picking Michael boob lay. But he did, you know, his son was sick. Yes. So that takes him off the board. He his son a hopefully gets better. But you know, he seems to have a very good career wife and kids things are going well making a lot of money ever likes Michael blue blazing commercials. All the time. I'm going to Adam LeVine. I'm young. I'm good looking. I'm in a band. That's really really successful. I go on my own. I'm more successful. I get a TV show that pays me a truckload of dough. And I'm just you know, women are apt to find a way not to date women. He's I mean, he's can't even keep the women. Awesome. Well, he he he is keeping them off. And now that's a he had to get married to stop dating. All these women. I don't know. That's true. Get away. Women think about Adam LeVine, not a lot of trials and tribulations to them Nikolai. Like, the the tribulations might be the negative reviews off the Super Bowl halftime performance. Like that would be the down. So he went for an eight pack to a six pack thirty, you know, people complain to the FCC about him showing his nipples. During that's not an F C C violation a man with a shirt off. I I know but you'll had people who did complain to the FCC. But I think that's why because why can a man. Yeah. Show them in a woman. Absolutely. So like Janet Jackson's essentially been banned in it like destroyed her career. Yeah. Having a breast exposed during the Super Bowl. But Adam LeVine, just part of his act is taking off his shirt. So there's sort of pointing out the inequality of that at least bio pickle do have one Seton. I was actually going to say cold play. I really liked cold. Coldplay. I'd I really liked that ban. I really do. And I don't know what I would watch their well, the big drama was Winnie uncoupled with Gwyneth Paltrow like they couldn't even have a bad divorce like they uncoupled. And. Yeah. Like like, they're still friends. I think that he went to her wedding. Or maybe he was the, you know, gave her away at the only played at her wedding. The other guys best man. Mclovin. Do you have one Counting Crows at feel like kind of here created by the company sell indie rock to the masses? Very good that that poor guy. His tough moment was deciding between Courtney Cox, and Jennifer Aniston, I'll watch that scene. Now. I don't know what the rest of the Bill. Yes, Seton man, I hate to throw this band in there. This might be mean spirited, and I apologize, but maybe Dave Matthews band. I don't know that there's a lot going on there for a for a biopic. Yeah. Twenty five years of success is killing it. Yeah. Of jamming on the road. Let's it Dan Patrick show. Brought to you by Mercedes AM be prepared for whatever comes your way. The all new GT four door coupe because life is the race. Visit your local dealership for test drive today. Great movie critic syndicated columnists with the Chicago. Sometimes Richard Roeper. Joining us, Richard. Let me start with the very very difficult question. Is it a bio pic or biopic? I think a biopic is what you get when there's some sort of strange discoloration on your shoulder blade, isn't it? So I go with bio pic? Okay. Yeah. We have Elton John that bio pic is coming out. What's the timeframe for that? That's coming out this summer. Okay. It's starring Terron Eggerton people might not know the name, but he's been in the Kingsman secret circle movies and bunch. He played Eddie the eagle actually member the. Gear he actually played him in a in a bio pic a couple of years ago. Then who else is I feel like Hollywood's gonna go. Oh, my God look at what Queen made they brought back stars born. Or are we headed down that road of more bio-pics? Is there a Bob Marley or David Bowie or prince bio pic? Everybody you mentioned there. You know, our films in development. There's actually a motley Crue bio pic. That's I think on net flicks right now, I'm still waiting for ballroom blitz. You know, the the one hit wonders, you know, that be up for the academy worked for, you know, short subject best movie. You saw this year was what? You know, the best movie I saw the movie that that got no love come nomination was a movie called widows, which was a heist movie political thriller set in my hometown of Chicago directly. Steve MacLean who wanna ask her for twelve years a slave? It had violet Davis in Liam Niessen and Colin Farrell and Robert Duvall. And for some reason, it's went on one under almost everyone's radar. So people get a chance check out widows that movie should've won a half dozen Oscars. I was thrilled that Regina king one. But probably thrilled because of another re you know, different reason than anybody else. She played rod Tidwell 's wife MARCY in Jerry Maguire. That's right. And you know, even back then, and of course, as we know, you know, Kuku Jing Qiu, Cuba Gooding junior won the Academy Award for best supporting actor. She wasn't even nominated a lot of people thought that performance should have been nominated because when you look back at that film. That's the real relationship. That's more interesting than Tom Cruise Zellwegger, it's that wonderful loving supportive marriage between those two characters, but you're he brings me to the topic of best supporting and best actor, you know, in in green book, I couldn't tell as I watched the movie who would be considered the best actor and who was the best supporting actor in there. How do you differentiate that or I mean is this strategically placed of we have a better chance winning if he's best supporting as opposed to best actor? Yeah. You know, the weird thing of interesting thing is, Dan. There are no you're the academy has all these other arcane rules, it's like the NFL playbook. There are no rules about what the supporting or lead performance studios can decide. So you. Mentioned green book. Now, I would say that. I think beagle. Mortensen was believed because we get his we get about twenty minutes of him at the beginning of the movie before Mahershala Ali characters introduced into the film. Yeah. At that point. They're just co co leading stars. But you know, for example, Libya Coleman who won best actress last night for the favorite. She's really a supporting character. Emma stone is the lead in that movie. She's the one who has the most street. So it is strategic in. We think you have a better chance. Therefore, we get more. I ball's on the movie if this person wins an Academy Award, and the other thing is Dan just what kind of an impact it has on audience is the most famous example to me is Anthony Hopkins who won best lead performance for silence of the lambs that movies over two hours long. He's in the movie for about twenty to twenty five minutes, but he was so memorable. These studio rightfully thought, you know, what let's put him up for lead performance. And he went for best actor in film in which Jodie Foster. And Scott Glenn have way more screen who got screwed last night. Well, I think in you know, for the best picture I would have preferred to see black klansman or Roma win. I also was not a huge fan of Hemu rap city over on Remmy Malik, Alex great actor, but he did not even perform those vocals, those are, you know, basically lip synching that we saw. So I you know, to me I would much rather have seen Christian battle win for vice for lead actor, you had Spike Lee who tried to walk out when green book one that has that ever happened before where somebody's that upset with somebody winning. Yeah. It has happened a few times. Although usually they do kind of quietly. It's usually it's usually people who are upset that they didn't win. You know, we'll Smith went home early one time they claim to one of the kids out of cold so get out of their early. But I can't remember anybody walking it's likely it just wanted an Academy Award for screenplay for for like Clinton. But you know, he was not like a lot of people where he was not a huge fan of green book. He started to walk out. He came back. You know, I don't know if he thought better of it. He knew he had a couple of conversations with other people's that was don't make this about you. Now, you know, you could talk about the movie later, so, but yeah, he was definitely ticked off which the twenty nine thousand nine movie that we absolutely have to see. I think it's the Irishman which is the Martin Scorsese film. You know, it's a it's a mob film, obviously about the Irish factor. And it got you know, everybody's back. You know, some of the classics. You know, we get to narrow Pacino Joe patchy in this movie they've done about the Irishman forever. But now it actually has pleaded filming it's really going to happen. I hated the departed. Well, you know that there are a lot of mixed feelings about that. I, you know, you're wrong. Sometimes this is one of those cases. So I would suggest you go back and rewind Nicholson eleborate Nicholson's not good in that role. Well, you know, I I will give you that you know, to certain point Nicholson's career. He started just doing Jack Nicholson. You know, who's career? Would you rather have deniro or Pacino? Boy, you know, I think maybe deniro only because you know, and I love Pacino, and he's still he's still churning out the movies, but deniro made that nice Tibbett where you get a lot of fun doing the comedies and also make it the money because those guys didn't get paid back in the seventies. They didn't make any money so deniro, I think might be the more astute businessman and had has maybe had a little bit more fun in the, you know, the home stretch of his career where we headed with movies with the influx of TV and feels like the great actors are are going to TV. Yeah. Well, you're absolutely right about that that that's because TV is, you know, as at least for the last half dozen years, maybe longer Ben more of the writers medium, you know, as you know, a lot of these movies are superhero movies that almost write themselves. It's all about the special effects and all of that. Whereas something like true detective and Handmaid's tale and a million others. These these episodic shows, you know, what you're Julia Roberts. You could play the mom of somebody in a feature film, or you can have the lead in a show like the Amazon series homecoming where she got to do, you know, great work over, you know, an eight or nine episode arc. So I think for for folks like us who, you know. Really appreciate you'll great writing. Great acting. There's probably more of that on television right now, if you will or streaming whatever you wanna call it, then there is the conventional movie theaters, what the Jennifer Aniston movie where it's sort of based off Dolly Parton. The the songs that that her daughter at a beauty Queen. Yeah. Go gosh. I can't remember the name of it. But that was actually a lot of fun belly attributes I thought it was really well done. I thought that the girl played her daughter in Anniston, I think is underrated as a comedian dumpling dumplings the name of it. It don't want. Thank you for that. Yeah. Well, yeah. That's part of the problem. We can't think of the title because that's you know, 'cause net flicks is putting out more movies than all of the studios put together and some of them get kinda get lost in the shuffle. But that's that's a terrific example, that I've always not gonna get theaters in two thousand nineteen but it was a terrific PISA, entertainment dally partners. You mentioned attributed six original songs. There's a movie that just came out this week on Netflix. It's called a paddle tin with Ray Romano Romano who again is another guy who like, you know, in the big sick a couple of years ago. And now this movie proves that he can do more than sitcom acting. So I know a lot of, you know, traditional movie critics in studio people are threatened by Netflix. I say, you know, welcome. To the party because a lot of things that would ever even get produced or released find a home on that once Ray romano's in the Irishman. Yeah. Yeah. Rav. Yeah. Ton of you know, familiar comedic actors, you know, guys like scores says he they've always been great at finding somebody. You know, you go all the way back to the king of comedy where he puts Jerry Lewis in that role. You always been great about, you know, unconventional casting and finding something in someone that we'd never do is there Rupert, pumpkin. I believe was deniro. There you go. You you still haven't reviewed all of my movies that didn't like my acting ability. You know, like like, well, you're you're I m d your IMDB is you no longer than John Goodman's at this point. So I'd have to take a week off from all expect to get all the entire Dan Patrick Hoover. Although, you know, we could. Don't we could we could do a film festival, and there you go. Okay. All right. Well, whose career would you rather have minor John Goodman's? All that come out a pick them. Push. It's great to talk to you. Richard. Hope you're doing. Well. We appreciate you. Joining us anytime. Tickets Richard Roeper, Chicago, Sun-Times nationally, syndicated columnists movie critic. Yeah. I remember at one point he was he was going to review all of my roles in the Sandler movie. And I believe I'm up to like seventeen movies something like that. I mean, they're not long scenes, but I do they're seeing their movie stealing scenes. Yes. Bo do you see the ad for the film the Irishman last night. They played during the ketamine worth. It was just the title of the film who's in it and a little patch of audio the they played no clips of the movie, they said deniro Pacino. I've got the IMDB right now. It's Robert deniro, Al Pacino Ray Romano. Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and on and on like second tier actors a lot of them that you know, the name is Jack Nicholson in it. He's not okay. Yeah. I just. That that the very end of the departed. And if you haven't seen it sorry, you're too late like everybody starts shooting everybody, and I I laughed out loud. I went to see it in the theater, I laughed out loud. Because I thought oh my God somebody gets shot. And then somebody comes down the elevate. They get shots. Somebody goes up the elevator. Then they get you like you're just going come on. And then at the very end, there's a rat. That goes across the banister. They're like to say that you know, they were rats in that movie. I didn't get the symbolism as it wasn't a heavy handed. So I don't know as greatest Scorsese is. That's just not what you win for.

Get two more years, by the way. The Knicks won a home game for the first time since December first. There. Eighteen game losing streak at home tied for the third longest all time in baseball hockey, NFL NBA history. The Mavericks lost nineteen in a row. So this is home losing streak, and is spike leave and said Samuel L Jackson gave him a Knicks update during the Academy Awards. And then spike said, you know, that we're tanking and they're doing good job of tanking. So far who else is take Phoenix's bad to Phoenix has what do they have eleven wins. Something like that. And I thought Phoenix might show some improvement. But the Knicks that's an organizational tanking their. Yeah. Mclovin. High speed I was told this weekend that they flattened the lottery so badly that the next really only have a small chance. Anyway, I feel like tanking has lost its allure eighteen percent for the first three twelve percent for four. Yeah. It's gonna be hard tank. Like you used to know. Yeah. Paul. So then if you're the Los Angeles Lakers you in no way wanna make the playoffs because you're not winning anything this year. And you know, it can admit that verbally out loud. But the making the ACT is a disaster for the Lakers. But it feels like this is about LeBron's pride LeBron's reputation of making the playoffs. Yes. Luke Walton probably knows even if he makes the playoffs. He he may not keep his job. But he's got a better chance to keep his job. If they make the playoffs. I just don't think he's going to. And then these younger players know, even if we make the playoffs we're still going to be traded, or at least they're gonna try to trade us. So this is man, it's it's that's got to be a weird feeling with the Lakers right now. Because LeBron I make the playoffs. That's why I'm all about. And if you don't make the playoffs, then what happens? And then who's getting traded who's getting fired? And this is this is not going to stop this soap opera continues into the off season. In fact, even more interesting in the offseason. Yeah. Mclovin. Do you think that he thinks if I can avoid the warriors around one I can at least compete with any of these teams nuggets are to seed than the thunder blazers. It's a big mishmash in the west. Yeah. I just don't know if they're consistent enough to to win four games in a seven game series. That's that's the problem. I have they show no consistency in a continued to play down to their opponents. They can beat Golden State. They can beat the rockets. They can beat the nuggets you lose to New Orleans without Anthony Davis. You lose to the Knicks. You lose to the hawks. You lose to the wizards. That's not a good team. Fritzy, I'll start with you best and worst of the weekend best of the weekend. Eric, Gordon, Chris Paul and Kenneth read score at least twenty points, Golden State Sunday night, beating the warriors one eighteen one twelve without the services of James harden worst of the weekend Also Saturday Kansas gift. Crushed Ninety-one sixty two at Texas Tech jayhawks had only one play with more than nine points. They only managed twenty total points in the first half and they had won fourteen consecutive re regular season conference titles. But right now, they trail case state by two games in the big twelve with four to play. Mclovin. Best and worst of the weekend bass there was a play in the next game where Dennis Smith junior. Threw the ball. Off the backboard to Mitchell Robinson for dunk all star. Sil- to emphasize Nixon winning worse is the fact that Bryce Harper is still dragging the country along on this free agency, period. Seton O'Connor best and worst of the weekend. Did you see in Chelsea Manchester City when the went to at the end of stoppage time, they went to shoot out and the goal goalie. He refused to come off the field out for another guy who's sort of a specialist and the Chelsea Gullion. Now just kept waving them off. Like, I'm not no you can't you cannot make me leave goal right now. I don't know that I've ever seen something like that where they're trying to sell about like he's he's on the field. And they won't move was funny. Nope. Not doing it. So that was my best of the weekend. My worst of the weekend was well, it was sort of a best to actually was watching lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper perform last night. And sing that song which this chemistry is just undeniable. Right. You could see it everywhere. And you just know that Bradley Cooper's partner is sitting. Irena shake Irena shit. One one of the one of the beautiful women in in the world, and he's cuddled up on this Pia. No, and right sort of cheek-to-cheek on a microphone singing with this woman. It was just it was hilariously awkward. I wonder if she says I want you to look at me the way you look at lady Gaga, or why don't you look at me the way you look at lady Gaga and people want them to be in love, Bradley Cooper and lady Gaga because they're really a couple right? Yeah. Yeah. He's a really good actor keys a really good actor if he can pull that off if he says to her look hunting, that's acting just acting. It's just acting. I mean that that's my actor. That's Bradley Cooper. I'm Honey buns right here with you baby money. One Paul best damore have a worse that weekend. Liverpool fan, nil nil. Tie versus Manchester United Liverpool needed that one. Now, they're still in first place. But as a longtime Liverpool fan. Get all bunched up. Harry kane.

Join just may boss. Hey, dan. Six two to ten. Murray. My I love you Seton. But I gotta disagree with you on the bio pic for DMV. I think that would make a great movie story with Dave originating from South Africa, losing his father at a young age moving to the states, losing his sister to gun violence, losing a couple band members one in two thousand eight on an ATV accident, and then the violinist here last couple of years, he was was kind of dismissed from the band, and then, you know, twenty five years plus of touring. All right. Well, I you know, what maybe you made a pretty good case. They're for Dave Matthews band. Final hour coming up. Have you checked out the big podcast with shack here podcast one?

2215 - Understanding Kashmir w/ Mohamad Junaid

"You are listening to a Free Berge of majority report with Sam Cedar to support this show and get another fifty minutes daily program go to Jordi he dot FM. Please Charlie Rub. It's Thursday November seventh. Two Thousand Nineteen Michael Brooks on a Michael Thursday. This is the five time award winning majority report. We're broadcasting live steps from the industrially ravaged honest canal in the heartland of America Downtown Brooklyn USA on Today's program Mohammad Jihad professor of anthropology at Mass Massachusetts College of Arts were talking about cashmere what the Modi Government has done the role of Kashmir in peace and security in South Asia. Is there a role for China as an underreported crisis deepens on the subcontinent continent letter released today. On the eve of a Supreme Court decision in Brazil that may be delayed again in or may finally release political prisoner Lula da Silva accusations of irregularities have not been proven but the crisis accelerates in Bolivia after Evo Morales election to a fourth term. Some people doubted it. For some reason but Bernie Sanders has unveiled of course the most. left-wing comprehensive immigration plan the only candidate. It was a call for a full break-up of ice and the time to break up facebook sanders says after leaked documents. MINCE showed the giants social media. The facebook treated user data as a bargaining chip apparently to help improve connectivity on activity air to one says that the US is not fulfilling. Its Syria deal ahead of trump talks to former our twitter. Employees have been charged with spying for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Digging into accounts of the kingdom's critics and giving all All of their personal information to the kingdom and suddenly they're charged but they're both in Saudi Arabia. Bill Gates thought that was McKenzie's job right right. I Bill Gates. It's almost like he isn't actually a positive force in the world. It's almost like a billionaire. Oligarch we'll have any answer about taxation and threatened to vote and maybe make the worst. I turn defensive philanthropy that will hear all year indeed demonstrations the Chile spread in Iraq forces. Murder Thirteen protesters renewed crackdown as the movement against austerity continues. Secret Gerrymandering ring files. Els Can now be made public court. Rules the Republicans plan to suppress the boat and trump wanted bar to hold a press conference saying that the president broke no laws in a call at the Ukraine leader. All that and much much more on today's majority report. Sorry folks I think I'm losing my voice a little bit realizing is going around. Got Into Gametime. It's weird. I don't feel anything else other than that Billionaires shouldn't exist Bernie Sanders gets that billionaires billionaires or a structural threat to democracy there is no no accumulation of wealth a matter how a quote unquote benign. It might be that does not involve monopoly. Worker Abuse Market concentration political. Rigging would have you uh that could create that level of wealth concentration. It's impossible in terms of reality for some reason in this country and Conor kilpatrick actually just made this. I think it was an amber frost point five remember correctly that the the British overclass sort of does a favor. You're because they are so horrifying gruesome. They actually do things like fox hunting and sort of you know. Look at what would bought. What bogs dugs? I think is at Mazar. Jonathan rees-mogg Jonathan Grenfell Tower. People were just too stupid to leave or something like that right. One of the literally a Aristocrat on the Tory front bench is so transparently evil and grotesque he would say that about the Grenfell Tower. Now in America Erica are oligarchs are the same but they wear sweaters and they talk about philanthropy and talk about doing good now incidentally Bill Gates waged a war against public education and teachers in this country. which has been a well? I think it's been a success in terms of what it was actually trying. Brian do but certainly not a success in improving education in this country and he has a creepy and bizarre obsession with African birth rates. Which I'm sorry I find that Kinda disturbing But there has been this delusional brand built in the American psyche that some of these people who look again some of them might be perfectly nice. People might even have nice intentions. But in fact the structural reality of their wealth is antithetical to democracy. And when push comes to shove most of them are going to vote in accordance with that so even a absolutely miniscule miniscule wealth tax like the One Elizabeth Warren is putting on the table with basically tax on bill. Gates's couch change. I think the number I think he's worth is worth worth at least twenty billion and I think if at two percent I think it would be like one hundred million which Obviously more in a lifetime for over ninety percent of people but for Bill Gates. I mean I don't know he wouldn't even need to sell a jet To to chip that off to the federal government. But Oh boy did that lead to a meltdown and I would say along with all of the Photos of whom would refer up soon may be a ongoing. Maybe a ongoing mask off moment for Bill Gates now somebody she can say. I'm very biased. Since I've been a beneficiary of the existing system but I'd love to somebody to find a middle ground and approach because the government's role in health care and better education. The government does need more resources than it has today. So what would you do I it well. If you make the tax on capital the same as Labor you go back to the we just just recently. The AH size and Duckman discovered. The era of research showed that capital taxes on Labour's than taxes on capital. The idea that would make them. Kim Even is ludicrous. That's a middle ground. No capital should be taxed far far higher than Labor. Put it in simple terms You're you know Wall Street. Stocks speculation by rich people or being a landlord should be taxed at a higher rate than your your job on capitol the same as Labor. You go back to the estate tax that we used to have doing something like the ten year thing where it's super large fortune. The the big portions are not as petty says return on capital. The big fortunes are the return on creating companies that achieved very strong positions particularly in the technology industry. That's where you get these. Super Big Numbers Burnett. Yeah Bill Gates created such a pernicious monopoly in technology that at the end of the Clinton administration ration- that Administration was going after their monopolistic practices. And the Clinton Gore administration presided over some of the most expansive deregulation of Wall Street. Read the first late. Nineties tack bubble. His practices were so predatory a monopolistic that caught the attention of the late nineties. The Clinton Justice Department you get these super big numbers and so there you know. I've you've paid over ten billion in taxes. I paid more than anyone in taxes but I I'm glad what do you know if I'd had to pay twenty billion that's fine but when you say I should pay one hundred billion okay. Then I'm starting to do a little math. Ask about what I have left over. Sorry I'm just kidding. Six billion dollars you really the central system to be there and you can go a long ways without threatening that. Have you ever talked to was born about an hour. Would you want to you know. I'm not sure how open minded into cheers or that. She'd even be willing to sit down with somebody who has large amounts of money. Okay so let me make a call for you. You've been politely say public about your misgivings about our current president. If Elizabeth Warren Worthy other candid did what would you do you know I. I'M NOT GONNA make political declarations but I do think no matter what policy policy. Somebody has in mind. A professional approach is even as much as I disagree as code. Let's see things that are out there. I do think a professional approach the office. Whoever I decide would have the more professional approach in the current situation probably will way way is the thing that I'll weigh the most and I hope the more professional candidate is an electable candidate? Here exactly bill more professional approach. What does that even vinegary more? It means don't tax him. Jesus I even get it Brendan now of course the the other element of why you have a we should have way. Bigger Wealth Tax is for the sake of democracy. We'll get the numbers the second I just WanNa say Elizabeth Warren Fine The the team sent out a awful tweet saying that she would be happy to sit down with Bill Gates which is look. I'm always happy to meet with the people people. Even if we have different views. Bill Gates get a chance. I'd love to explain exactly how much you pay under my wealth tax. I promise you it's not one hundred billion now. Elizabeth Warren in last year refused to go on Fox News For some a very well argued reasons. I don't happen to agree. I think as disgusting as it is. It is the largest cable network in running for president. You're going to be on it indeed. Warren was regularly on Fox News before the commencement of the campaign but she did say look. I'm not going to go on a racist network promoting trump's terrorism at the border. And again I think if you're president you have to go on Fox and indeed a Bernie. Arnie didn't incredible job on Fox People to judge in this is really hard for me to say Personally in Fox's studios along with Bernie criticized Fox's racism and capitalist propaganda as an example. I I think it's very disturbing Elizabeth. Warren does not bring the the same energy to Bill Gates. Who in terms of reality is a way bigger threat and impediment than the average Fox? Viewer and of course the point it is to get to the viewers not the network. The network in this case is the medium right so to say I won't potentially reach millions of people and even if it's only ten thousand people that say you know what I like that policy set. I'll vote in a better way. But then all of a sudden you'll turn around and be kind of obsequious to an obscene oligarch who has basically just revealed revealed that for all the branding and all the bullshit that a modest wealth tax is enough for him to strive to at the very least consider voting for Donald Trump. I would say almost certainly he would vote for Donald trump or come up with some type of like made up stupid. You know third party campaign that would specifically function as a spoiler like try to resuscitate Howard Schultz so very bad instincts there in my view from Warren in and very revealing of billionaires. Aren't your friends folks if a billionaire gates wants to see a Bernie Sanders Elizabeth. Warren he should go to Iowa and Hampshire exactly go on the campaign trail so you can get a meeting. Why the hell should they sit down with you and I think that's the message you know we're we're why? How do you get special treatment special treatment your whole Damn Life Bernie Sanders? Twitter said Saeb. Bill Gates was actually taxed at one hundred billion we could end homelessness. Homelessness provide safe drinking water to everybody in this country. Bill would still be a multi-billionaire our message. The billionaire class could not have it all when so many have so little. That's what it is and incidentally not particularly interested in listening to you laboriously try to get through a point about your greed while looking at the you know intentionally like DC. The holes in the soles of shoes like the whole like just regular old girlfriend really liked to spend. That's let's even worse these billionaires that are longer drive a used car. Hold my shoes disgusting. I mean the very very least make a little bit of the trickle down work my God go buy some frigging cars employs some more people. You Greedy Morons.

Welcome back to the majority report joining us. Now is professor Mohamed denied. He's a professor of anthropology at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Jihad as you've investments call you professor as I'm tempted to call you. How are you thanks for being here? Hi Michael. It's a pleasure to be. aww It majority report so can you start by just giving us a fresh sort of we've talked about on the show but give us a review as to what has happened in Kashmir over the last several months from the government in Delhi so for those listeners. Who Don't know Because Shamir so well Just wanted to let you know that Kashmir is at the heart of three major countries mm Tris all of them have nuclear weapons India and China. It's Himalayan region with a long history and It became part of this dispute between in India and Pakistan in nineteen forty seven and British left the subcontinent Leaving Kush mediais In state of limbo because they were not allowed love to decide their future whether they would go with India Pakistan or whether they would prefer to remain independent so in the aftermath of the partition in nineteen forty seven India. India signed the treaty with the ruler of Kashmir. Who was an art? Presentative figure for Kashmir's it's called the instrument of accession and and based on that tricky India had incorporated too key articles in the constitution Article Three seventy and article thirty five eight which became a constitutional kind of link between India and Kashmir Article Three seventy was about Bush meat is autonomy That lose most of Camis the decisions that affect cushman would be taken by assembly in Kashmir except for Defense Communication and external affairs and article thirty five a was about land and permanent residency who could live in Kashmir who buy land immovable property in Kashmir and then This system has continued for seven decades. Almost in little watered down form but on August five Two Thousand Nineteen Indian government Withdrew and revoked. Article three seventy without consulting cashmere concuss meetings and also revoked. Thirty five eight All of this was done by kind of What committees perceived as the seat seat because most of Kashmir was under severe lockdown People's phones were taken away. They could not call anyone. They could not connect with anyone. The Internet was shutdown In a so right now we are like four months into it and that process continued. Kush Amedee's have not been able to express their opinion on what has happened of these articles. And what in terms of how you understand the government in Delhi's move and you you talked about the land issue Obviously there is a you know sort of the Hindutva dimension and I'd like to talk about the ideology of Narendra Modi BJP government but they're also something going on here. That may be in. You know bear with me. It's analogies. Aren't perfect but something that's almost more analogous in some respects to something like Puerto Rico or or another kind of like they're basically there's an opportunity to also do a lot of very primitive capital accumulation. Right now you can get people off of pretty prime real estate eight Some of the most beautiful places in the world's I haven't had the privilege of going at least even just kind of on a You know as I've seen represented in film and photography the ski slopes there's there there's money to be made capital to be accumulated in in the clips of Sort of Indian sort of mainstream right wing media that I've seen there's cert there's the sort of stuff you expect with the BJP Hindutva Stafan often terrorism rhetoric and so on but there I've also seen clips that are like this is going to be a bonanza. There's great money making opportunities here. So what's the sort of relationship of what's happening here. Between the kind of broader nationalist project consolidation and the identity politics of it and the capital accumulation dimension So we are living in a historically a moment when crony any capitalism has met This nativist kind of populist nationalism. And it's happening in a variety of spaces across the globe. India is particularly Blatant case for this because It's the lives of one point. Two three billion people that are at stake. Okay Now let me just like break it down a little bit The RSS which is currently regime That runs India India. Narendra Modi the prime minister although he has parties called. BJP BJP is just a political front for USCIS. Modine himself is a lifelong member of fought. Artists are assists has its roots in nineteen twenties at emerged as a sort of a nationalist organization. Taking inspiration Asian from The rise of Nazism Germany and Fascism in Italy it believed in Hindu supremacist ideas. It believed in Eugenics and I believe that nationalism trumped every other concentration you know so being Indian is primary or being human So so this is the party that kind of into assassinated a member of this body assassinated Gandhi and they came they were kind of low lying For you're a pretty long time did ideas whereas dispersed across the political sphere but in the nineties early ninety s when India was going this massive restructuring of its economy where You know these I am prescribed Destructive policies taking away benefits from people people ending the body distribution system Selling off national assets to domestic capless. All of this kind of coalesced together at that time. Time and the nationalist national supported these domestic accumulation In the hands of Fu People like Ambani's Adani's the BIRLA's Tatas were these big industrial houses in India and The these big outlets Ben Affleck use. I use this nativist national hyper-nationalist discourse to get rid of the Some of these democratic debates democratic institutions Russians Trying to persuade people away from questions of inequality and economy words fearmongering towards Creating internal threat And so all of this has led to a situation where in India which is probably one of the among the two topmost unequal societies in the world where the top one percent of the population Owns basically seventy five a person of the national wealth Where almost quarters of a belt generated and the economy goes to the top ten percent of the people and You know oh so. This inequality has kind of coexisted And allowed this natives rhetoric to go on and now with the revocation of seventy thirty five a the Indian government led by BJP. Moldy wants to do two things incursion made one it wants to Demographically Change The region by bringing in Indian people who can like basically do You Know Oh come in turn Kashmir's into minority and remove Through demographic transformation the question of self-determination which still remains ought to be You know address Starting to mindful from Kush meetings and second and most importantly they want to sell off Bushmeat the pristine lands of Kashmir which is like logically very fragile to these crony capitalism who've been supporting them who've been funding the elections I'm so all of that. Process has already begun. And so actually. So maybe it's also kind of like in some ways analogous Tibet in terms of the kind of occupation occupation and population engineering and also a huge amount of Ecological resources to be determined so to be Acquired let's come back to India in a minute. Let's talk about the other two players here and let's start with podcastone one of basically just balance silence. I mean there's no doubt that obviously the sort of RSS Propaganda and the main sort of perspective of justifying this behavior in terms of international no press and people who defend it you know the just sort of repeat terrorism talking points now And so you know that's important. I know you'll push back into bunket Donkin at the same time I mean obviously Pakistan has actually funded Some of these types of groups even independently of Kashmir willing back to like the attack on the Oh oh boy hotel two thousand eight that great atrocity and India and Pakistan have their own Dynamic which in some ways it seems like Pakistan may be you know hasn't even more kind of limited foreign policy in terms of its focus really specifically on India so what is is Pakistan's role here both in terms of what part of Kashmir is in Pakistan and are in fact is the human rights situation on the Pakistani side better than on the Indian side or worse or equal and to what extent has there been not in in the current escalation. Meaning the politics of that is obvious in terms of. What's coming out of the nationalist? Crony politics of of Delhi right now but historically I have some of the groups and some of the things that Pakistani Pakistan has funded. Have they engaged in atrocities. Yes so let me. First Begin by saying that As a scholar of Kushner I don't see cushman necessarily as a territorial dispute between India and and Pakistan. Although globally under discoursed on Cushman has been basically captured by India and Pakistan they claim Pakistan teams to be the unfinished business of partition and India blames Pakistan for all that is happening in Cushman's So what Kush meetings he's been trying to do from Los. Seventy years is to center themselves and claim that Kashmir belongs to sh. Mary's and push media should be the people who decide did the their fate and their future Now of course you know. Nineteen forty seven Part of Kashmir came under pakistan-controlled control which meant that Pakistan became kind of like a party to this question And there are a lot of regions of Kashmir that are under Pakistani control. Control Right now So since nineteen forty seven India and Pakistan have fought several wars And most of these wars have happened. They they can place or Kashmiri territory affecting Schmidt. He's the most you know the committee's who died in these wars In nineteen ninety committees. AMEDEE's rose up in rebellion against the Indian control and Moss purpose which brutally suppressed There were massacres. There's a litany of massacres really from nineteen eighty eight nine hundred ninety that took place in Kashmir at that time in response to which Young Committee activists crossed over the Line of Control and went to the other side of Krishna seeking arms training while the Pakistani government at that time showed lukewarm response to this. They likely on them gave them fifteen days training and send them back most of these young. Kush media's kind of basically died as soon as they came in thousands of Kashmiri the militants who had so basically bait and barely any training way dying. And you have to remember a time. Also then I've gone situation is is boiling over Soviet Union left Afghanistan. And there's a war going on between the jubilees regime and the so-called majority Dean who who actually win and many of these militants are are then like transported into Kashmir by the Pakistani establishment abdomen and the Pakistani establishment basically sought to create a constituency in push meet where the the militants kind of the only ones uh-huh who had Some power would be the ones who speak the pro-pakistan language like that Kush mission merged with ECKSTEIN and those cash Amedee's the majority who wanted to be independent and we're fighting India for that Where slowly silenced of course by Indian repression but also by Pakistani manipulation Yes On many of these groups that came into Kashmir with Islamist. They were Some of them believed in Jihad some of them believed in global jihad but overall sentiment in committee has been centered on Kush made committees auto pluralistic people people. You know we have a long history of You know being A plural society with Dolled reading differences and like our Very Progressive Boston in fact in nineteen forty S. One of the major events was the adoption of this constitution. Institution call Not A concentrator documental fish media which imagined a progressive free democratic pluralistic cushman That sentiment has remained and it's are at the heart of the Kashmiri struggle Southam nation because most Kush media's believe Of course that India and Pakistan have not been able to be fair and just to push me. Res And India has of course failed as an idea to the for Kashmir so the only solution is to basically you know charge one course and Builder Society loosely Pluralistic Society that she deserves so yeah and this is really important. I just want to underline this. Oh I mean yeah so. International Rhetoric and security rhetoric is India versus Pakistan. What is the Indian record? There does India deserve it. What are the nation notions of Nationhood and India House relate the Kashmir in Pakistan takes you know independent Actors who want independence an actual autonomy for Kashmir and then obviously weaponize it for their own own Nationalistic foreign policy aims and missed inside. All of that is this ongoing reality. That Kashmir really is independent thing thing with its own autonomous direction and desire which is suppressed By these two nationalist impulses. Yeah okay What is China's role in all of this So China's China's role first of all. Of course it's As I said it's the neighboring country. its borders meet cushman through Tibet which it occupied in the fifties and Part of the historic territory of what was the state of German cushman before nineteen forty seven was taken over by China in nineteen sixty two during India China War So China has control over part of Kashmir part of this state of Kashmir China is also an ally of Pakistan although much of on that alliances built on like you know issuing statements but north actually being a force on the ground While I mean it's it has not provided to be kind of like a stabilizing force force in the region and kind of has Strong trade relations with India all those it has strong defense relations with Pakistan. So so it's role is kind of ambiguous and has not factored in In the Kashmir question has one would have imagined so back to India. There's another Notion which was which sort of connects. what's happened in in in Kashmir with with a broader question about the nature of Indian nationhood 'em and I want to clarify guests first of all that even before this significant esscalation by the Modi government that Kashmir was already Place with decades long significant human rights violations by the Indian Indian government but also is there something to the notion that for all of the imperfections all of the contradictions in any number of areas the state of emergency in the nineteen seventies pogroms against Sikhs in the nineteen eighties the occupation of Kashmir that. There still is this notion. Russian of Indian pluralism coming from narrow that again at least allows for some of this notion of autonomy in Kashmir and a now in this new state building projects of the RSS. That India is being reconfigured along ANTI-PLURALISTIC ORLA nationalist lines and that. This is a sort of second founding away and Kashmir is ground zero for that So when you look at Cushman from Or India or ravine project from From the perspective of Chris Me and from the margins on there is really not that much of a difference. You know the question of Plebiscite no referendum was actually taken by In India itself international leaders at that time had our Told Kashmir is that they will well hold a plebiscite so that could determine their future and the betrayal of those promises as Comedians. Call it Begin almost with did narrow himself in nineteen fifty three for instance he arrested. She called the La who had endorsed the instrument of accession and kept him in jail for like almost a decade gate and a half and introduced legislation through these things called presidential orders that are gradually took away the content of article. Guilty seventy The narrow Vian policies from the beginning while they were pluralistic re Almost like you know That there was there's a notion of Secular Nation building. They were carried out in many parts of India but also understand that India in and headed. These national leaders inherited an empire from Britain British and they wanted to turn it into a nation state and narrow use the same team kinds of colonial policies That the British had used in the subcontinent. I mean if you look at India from the very beginning it has been at persistent war it Different Communities Nation Nationalities Nations groups and religious minorities from the vape. They big name. You know from the bombings in Missouri. mm-hmm the armed for Special Powers Act in money for In early fifties to ward and Cushman and arrest of national media national leaders to the so-called police action which was military brutality in a headed to annexation of Gore. And all of these things things have been continuously Taking place I we have also. We have argued for a long time. That Congress kind of set the template that Hindu nationalism. You know basically adopted just for the Congress Party Congress body pretty setup that template and You know although the rhetoric were secular rhetoric was National where minorities were supposed to be included looted in in in different degrees the Hindu nationalism. Basically use the same template of imperial control Except that they we're going to give primacy to the interests of one community. That's the Hindus. Yeah so now is the sort of where do we go from here. Question I think you know for an American global audience. There is the sort of if way of trying to grab people's attention on this. which is you know? There's so much worry about North Korea but in fact like the conflict between India and Pakistan and God forbid if India of China got involved that this could lead to maybe the most dangerous hot war on the planet and then There's the other notion of really censoring Kashmiri aspiration so what I mean from in those two frames. What do you see playing out and then you know I mean in fact even what do you think is helpful? I mean was the Bernie Sanders statement At least in terms of the clarity. The clarity on article three was that helpful. Where do we go from here in terms of the big kind of global threat level and then the urgent level of Kyw's Mary Protection and self determination? Yes so I think that It's a question of different scales gales what happens at the regional level. What happens at the global level at the regional level? Of course you know as I mentioned earlier and push me and has to be centered because It is already at the center of this major conflict. That is brewing up as you said. There's been a recent report by American scientists which basically argued that any war In small war in the region could quickly go out of control and and You know 'cause millions of Debts around the world and you know potentially destroyed the planet. I mean we're thinking here of like how how these scales are connected So as solution has to be sought. Ed Maybe an international agreement Between Trilateral Agreement Agreement between India Pakistan. Push me these Can emerge where Kushner insult becoming this bone of contention between India and Pakistan becomes like a breach of peace where you know. India and Pakistan agreed to give Freedom to respect divisions and Create open borders create. Use Kush meet as a trade Route I mean push meat is also at the heart of central and South Asia. So it's I mean those things can Happen at the regional level locally. Of course you know Indian government really needs to open up the communications free political prisoners and Basically removed military three from civilian areas at as urgently as possible because it's a unfolding humanitarian disaster globally. Of course we're seeing the rise of You know this populist nationalism at a time of extreme inequality we have to. I mean it's not only happening in India it's happening happening in the US. It's happening. In Britain it's happening in Turkey. It's happening all over the world and we need to kind of Return to the democratic ideals we need to make our institutions much mortar presentative of people's interest rather than you know intr- entr y of space. Where the these crony capitalists can twist policies that benefit only them? I mean much of the the ground forces forced off artists as stormtroopers of ours is actually come from Low income lower cost communities. Who who feel like they You know because they have this right to inflict violence or Muslims and other minority communities. They are somehow this is the feel a sense of empowerment mint. But it's not because they're still grinding under the feet of Costa's them and Capitalism in these regions so we have to take all kind of like a holistic approach to all of this which system a new system has to be built where human rights people's rights can be center of our focus and economic justice can be central focus absolutely. And it really is. I mean that is precisely global pattern. I in terms of the dynamic you just described their professor Mohammad Jihad professor of anthropology that Massachusetts College of Art of College of Liberal Arts. I really really appreciate your time. Thank you for leading US through this. Thank you so nice talking to you take good care. All right folks I think I mean there's a lot more to talk about. But she probably paying more attention to I think this is when he said destroy the world. I think I want to be specific and that report I think. The implication was that if they're if they exchanged changed a certain amount of atomic bombs could basically destroy like the global food production system because of radiation and That would be not good. Yeah there's a number of books About nuclear sort of precarity right Command and control role is one that can remember who it's by Eric. Schlosser could be. At least he wrote one of them. He's a really good reporter fast. Food nations could book too and that that is some pretty depressing reading like that was giving me when I post trump. I have a lot of these. Very Morbid often happens at eleven pm. I'm at night where he was like. Holy Crap it's all happening. We're in it like we've been joking around but actually it's happening right that before trump trump that used to be where it would come from for me is We need to do something about these nuclear weapons like even when Obama was noth- as guys can we just can we just You know baby decommissioned all of these quickly before we destroy the entire planet and then we're turns out we're going to destroy the planet in some other way. Maybe I I mean it's good to think about stuff like that and climate. Because it's like there are these literal foundation things things like and it's so funny because they're they're so elemental 'cause it's literally a question of survival and then it's also does get to for lack of a better word religious themes like do we have a right to change the entire. typography and climate balance of the planet non some type of extreme deep ecology way like no humans are not going to just fold back into the root woodwork. But what is the ethics of completely transforming in every way shape and form in a negative way this planet that we inhibit what's inhabit with so many other beings and then you you know the the new dimension like it's amazing how it's like a one in. Hey do you want to survive and carry on future generations. That's a pretty simple question. And any other like pretty deep moral stuff around lake private and public bureaucracies crisies of global destruction. That are you know that they should be you. Know they're pretty weighty questions Daniel Ellsberg wrote the Doomsday machine which we actually interviewed him for the eighteen. Great Great Book is why not I remember. I went out and I skipped the gym that outweigh that day. There's literally went. And just I like Oprah strongly salish or whatever that one the dead hand by David e Hoffman and Eric Schlosser Command Control. Three great books. If you WanNa really terrify yourself in a something besides fascism's yeah and I'll give some more a a creative end recommendations for nuclear nuclear proliferation End Zone by DON. Delillo if you're trying to get into Don delillo that's a quick one one and kind of captures. The American mind during the age of the nuclear threat heard the height of it. Really I guess in the Cold War and then Acid West by Joshua Wheeler. It's a series of essays about New Mexico and talks about the a lot of it is about the nuclear program in New Mexico. And Fun fact did did you now. The country that has had the most nuclear bombs dropped on it. It's America of course. Yeah the town even close. Yeah right perfectly safe life perfectly safe perfectly fine grasses hitters sunglass Santa Malians are doing it I also I mean it turns into really different kinds of movie but Hero Shema Mono more. I think it's called the the first ten fifteen minutes of that the depiction of the bomb on her asieme I think actually specifically to cause it's an old movie so it's so low tech but it's it's absolutely har I it's almost like seems like it would be more accurate because it isn't like a big league. CGI that people like. It's really like the one in terminator dislike. I remember that one that actually. Yeah word there's this the last tangent all is one term energy. Yeah we won't play audio. Just Jesus fucking I remember seeing this. Yes when I was a kid and Yeah this I was in the Adam. Curtis this is definitely Adam. Curtis B Roll for sure. I mean and there's the French last tangent this French philosopher whose name I'm forgetting. Actually his whole argument is that we should be talking about these things regularly and enacting them in our imaginations so as to like you repress them 'cause they're so terrifying terrifying and then that feeds the actual problem. Because it's not in your it's I don't want to think about it and then you you know occasionally just POPs up in the news like oh we still haven't done anything about climate. Oh the trump administration is tearing up one of the basic building blocks the poor frustration control and his ideas that you that those actual cultural acts are actually really important. 'cause they they bring bring it to the surface like he should be kind of scared and then there should be an action that arises from that. It's interesting But you know it's a balance. I was just reading interview Cornell West. Actually somebody was like you know like some people. Don't want to tune in to like the fascism of the trump administration because it's like it gets overwhelming and depressing and by the way I do think plenty of people should absolutely get off line and get outside and do other things for sure and then please do that but then on the other hand cornell was was saying like not in terms of. He wasn't talking about out following the news. He was talking about kind of absorbing the full weight of what's going on like kidnapping and and You know putting children concentration -centration camps in human beings and concentration camps just literally. What's happening That you know I mean he uses really spiritual language language which. I'm comfortable with but because I do think it is like it. It requires a lot of human depth to work with and there. There's a certain obligation to it because it's happening in people I mean. It's maybe easier to be dismissive of the importance of representing the stuff on screen. But I also remember I. I think it's is it Remmy Malik. WHO's doing a bond villain and it's like a Eko guy eco terrorist or something like that? It's like well expre- pointed out like like the like the writers almost seemed like it was just a fossil field billionaire. That's almost too easy or something like that. There was an old bond one that had that one of the new Daniel Craig ones was about this like some e part of it was a company like stealing feeling water in Bolivia. It's like it's a good it's perfect and that's why I'm sorry to bother. You is so good because the way it kept escalating was like it's turning any people into like Labor in half human half horse hybrids right and that is actually even though it's ludicrous and a reduction reductio AD absurdum has it has been burgess would say It's it illustrates something that's real and how basically we are conditioned by these corporations to be better workers so anyway now one hundred percent come member the majority for today majority dot FM slash become a member.

It's probably a about a particular person that I had a fondness for didn't reciprocates <hes> in generally just kinda relates relatable song for anybody who's gone through a particular period of time when they wanted something they haven't got. It and I would hope that there's a message to say. Keep keep going keep gaining well. Let's take a listen Steve.

We have yeah we're playing at the Roque Saints on Saturday the twenty third in February <hes> we lost the road saint. It was one of the first places that allowed us to play that back in January last year is always a fantastic. We Love Planning Lincoln Lincoln's a fantastic music scene. We love coming in. We very much looking forward to play the Rook said is one of those one of those pope's clubs with eight venues for music where whatever got guests on they always say oh. What do you WanNa play away? If you played before they always go the rooks into great venue it's brilliant. They're awesome so yeah and my my colleague here at the station was just saying that it's birthday on the twenty four so we're gonNA come down I think and they're celebrating style. We go so let's say you you've been doing your e covers band for a couple of years you had to do we say twelve years off away from lid fifteen years the air from <hes> I was in abundance originalist bonds back in the early two thousands <hes> unfortunately something happened in that kind of fell apart and up catalyst confidence in doing it so so cool paper break work life happened and sped away from me. It's only in the last six months or so after playing my own stuff again in various places as quite good music scene in grimsby a lot places opportunities to play your own store from and playthings so we have been doing that for six months or so and <hes> you say you've got kids now a half something that changed over the last fifteen years yes yes. Are they listening in this evening. I hope I hope they should be in bed by very true and dad's listening in as well. Hopefully he's got his if he's in that yeah yeah you should be listening very special day for instance birthday today so let's say it's more doctor who listening Cardi's in the Post I can actually you've given a shower. Local radio was mall too so what's been talking about. You know the the songs that you've covered in your band. What's the difference then for you between performing songs that other people people have written compared to your original music when you play or the people who've been there's a higher chance that they're going to sing alongs who are like when I'm on stage but obviously being a singer lights responsive crowd whether it's just dancing singing along just up fee as as long as people are enjoying the music? That's fantastic. Were obviously now. If you can see somebody singing along you can see they're responding responsive to it. Then that's all the bear obviously when he playing original songs. Nobody really knows the songs that much if they can not the head south they feed. That's fantastic asked what you always kind of. Find that when playing your own store at the end this a greater appreciation in the applause because it's something that you've done you you created this by yourself so they kind of appreciate that I would hope anyway. It looks that way and the big. The jury ms but they'll hopefully be one day sing along the words or at least know how to whistle the chew so the next song they ended up performing for is this evening is another one of your originals. Everyone's talking. Yes what's the story behind it. <hes> this was written <hes> quite a while ago again. I used to work in a pulp and it was when you're working beyond apart bar.

Now I've played one or two tracks from it may be but I'm just gonNA keep play more because I love it so much and it really defines what they show is all about is that in a lead back relaxing chill out tunes they says Dodie clock not what I meant you enjoy as much as I do stay attuned to siren radio. Let's find out just how Farro look like someone you should know.

You're listening to Siren Radio and when I when I was talking to other about songs that I've had suggested to me. It's one of the things that I love about. Doing this. Show is that I love people so to me. I've been listening to this band recently and I think that you know it fit in really well on your chill-out show. That's what happened with a colleague of mine at my day day job at work. They said play much of this band called. Bring me the horizon on your show and my instant reaction was no now. I'm sorry we do like a lot of chill out music that kind of thing. I said I folks on chill out music now. I don't really play much in a modern pop rock punk that kind of thing and you know listen to their new album and I did and I'm GonNa play it to you so take a listen to this. This is the the opening track from bring me Harare the horizons new album. It's top of the charts right now and I never thought that I'd be playing one of their songs here in the chill out show on Siren Domestic I apologize if you feel something <music> aww and so hello yeah bring me the horizon I apologize. If you feel something. A guy at work came up to me and said listen to it because their new album he he said that he's been a big fan of their since like that punk days and all of that and the heavy rock and he said and he basically said that he thought partly that they'd sold out but actually they did a really good thing and I think. They've done a really good thing. After listening to the entire album AMMO which came out on the twenty fifth of January I think they've done an amazing thing in not only catering to their longtime listeners of their genre of music but also getting the mainstream vibe in there is something that paramore did a couple of years ago which not ever on once again these happy about is something that a lot of bans have done over the years the the monkeys did it with two thousand thirteen album A._M.. Has Those checks that are just little indie songs or songs that you know they current genre but will actually be played everywhere Arron played on the mainstream radio. I think they've done a really cool thing that to solve cross genre their own music styles and their next album will be tested whether they stick with the what they go back to their roots or I mentioned the Arctic monkeys do something totally different we will see but abandoned the I have been wishing and hoping for that they would bring out a new album is the next the next song that I'm GonNa play for you this evening. They've been now out of action nowhere to be seen for a good five years and in five years time I might be a a little bit of Hitler. I'd hope that maybe they might reunite but he's not that particular song. It's two bodies one heart by Noah and the whale place you <music> do believe it's beating at the same poll says your we're two atom in a molecule and sat probably come on like could be ro two pieces of bond between you and it's a bond that breaks with the displacement dawn where two <music> bodies with one one day weird <music> doc only ever hoping I can be there for you Louis Louis in Christmas as Erbakan's. I'm confused Dow's sapper the demons then the gift giving for you separate the witches from the logging angels to to attack on and the field between bonds down the two bodies with spun where that that one day Linden from Sheffield has been in touch and said that she <hes> she really likes Noah and the whale so I hope you enjoyed that one lynn that that bad and just go back years for beat to my beginnings in naturally really enjoy music when I want to look back and I see a fourteen year old time every fifteen year old going to the York Barbican Centre I got the train over from Huddersfield with probably four or five of moments we had tickets cutler for awhile we went to the Yok pumpkin center full nowhere in the whale live. It was my first ever live Aleve geic first time seeing musicians light. I mean I'd seen musicians in lot. Maloka popes to fly that with family but this is the first time going with my friend somewhere that we'd never been before and the whole adventure of fit like that and and yeah I never looked back since Sir Neuro in the world will always hold a special place in my heart for that very reason. Let's take a look at one of the big news stories than from this weekend and that is that Sunday night saw the Baptist taking place <hes> the huge event in the world of film and it it didn't disappoint we so let's face it. They was one big winner. I didn't get a chance to watch the whole cermony live. Unfortunately I was on a train at the time <hes> however I caught a little bit of it and I've been reading the results this morning but the main winner <hes> has got to be the favorite starring of course Olivia Colman. It was an incredible evening for them. They took away seven awards seven awards for the favorite in second place. If we're running like that would be Mexican film Roma who took away four awards he me rhapsody with two Black Panther Black Klansman the green book vice and a star. A star is born all taken away warn BAFTA as well so <hes> yeah it seems like Olivia Colman and the gang really run away with it now. I got the chance about a week ago to go and see the favorite the syllabus because I thought you know the after coming up. I'm going to be about it. I'm here. I've got to see what this is all about because of those films. I've seen I've seen stars born vice. Green Book Behemoth Reps Today. I'm going to be honest oldest. The favorites was not my favorite and I'll probably have a few people getting in touch and saying that they disagree or maybe maybe my opinions on that one but you know this is just the opinion of kind. The Opinions Siren Radio wasn't a fan. Unfortunately I just I just felt like there. was something missing throughout say. I didn't feel like there was that connection with the audience I don't know whether it was a little bit of a Nova hype situation but that may have been the case however one person that I do love is Olivia Colman and of course she won the Best Actress Award last night and I think that she should get the award for best speech because you could see how down to earth she walls with this afterward and no matter how many she wins you can tell that it means the world to her. She spoke of her curse styles ritual ways and <hes> Emma stone and said as far as I'm concerned. All three of us are the same and should be the leads at it's weird that we can't do that so this is for all three of us I mean it's got my name on it but we unscratched from some other ones. We Go Olivia Colman at her best but we mentioned there. That's <hes> Remmy Malik took away the best actor award best male actor award for Bahia but rhapsody and his role as of course the iconic Freddie Mercury so thought. Let's play a little bit behavior rhapsody but with a slight difference is not the Queen version Russian but who is let me know on twitter at Siren F._M.. Statute but he mean rhapsody by the mystery band. He's just fun to see the sky this guy aw <music> now he's five <music> the most fun aw loves me outstanding. Let me go <music> mummy yeah you too <music> the hime rhapsody built by who that was the question I gave you three minutes and fifty seconds ago who was covering the hit by Queen Wean where we've had a few guesses in we've had westlife who and what was the other one some of the walls of lost wherever avalos where everything is I'm getting very tired and the Studio Ladies and gentlemen the black-eyed Peas. That's the one of the WHO was life and the black eyed peas none of those are correct unfortunately but we have had one correct jack ten Sir and that comes from heather a Lincoln so I hope that you are very proud of the hugh correctly guessed but that was none other than g four yes from the very first incarnation of the x factor g four that was released in two thousand and five. I was like say I was looking for a cover of this and g four all POPs in my mind simply because I was digging through an old box of firmly d._v._d.'s and they earlier this week and he's got like old shows from when I was in drama school as a kid videos of Latin sixth birthday party all this random stuff from fifteen twenty years ago even for a lot of it <hes> and then it was just a random C._d.. In a case of g four aw I have no idea how that got there maybe there my long lost relatives. My four long lost brothers who knows less to siren radio and we mentioned that one of the all of the guesses for that last song was Westlife so it may not have been correct but let's take a listen to their latest sauna song that I heard for the first time on the Graham Norton show last week and I I think he's a really good song is flight. The charts already Seles here. It is West Life. Hello by love. No one knows about the things that have been through you Zadrai near the Van Your Majesty beautiful way so lucky that we have some of dictate it spans you can against you this is he the the good things you do in a way. It bothers me that you don't get enough now on a one to be human without a betty of team perfect teeth hair grove and wherever nomo lips can hold against you this is all that out of me <music> humans when you hear that West life over near the top of the charts once again in fact they are number one in the U._K.. In the Irish singles. Singles Chart Sorry I want to get that one correct right now feels like back in the mid noughties again but I tell you what they have adapted well that Song Hello My love which was released last week is a really Nice Nice Choon. I love it and it was risen by Steve Mac who is behind some of the band's biggest hits world of our own flying without wings and swear it's again however it is also co written by none other than Ed Sheeran so you can hear a little bit of in it won't you. Won't you know the ED had a little bit of a say in it. You can indefinitely here his touch of magic on there. It's just gone that twenty to twelve on your Monday evening. I don't know how I'm still running. I've been up since five A._M.. This morning to a and we can all sorry about that. You could probably tell I've got a bit of a bit of a cold on by my voice of by the fact that I'm sniffling a little bit but yeah my my day started nineteen hours ago five A._M.. Ebb and until now luckily I was able to get a quick napping about three o'clock this afternoon for an hour or so but that's that's what we like to do here. Sired radio you know community radio station presenters and producers. We work hard to bring you the best content that we can do even if it deprives us of our sleep.

episode hello and welcome back to living fully i'm so excited because they have a very special guest that embodies what this podcast is all about probably more than a lot of people that are gonna come on the show and i happen to know him very well aunt today i have my dad all the podcasts gary urban mountain climbing extraordinaire businessman father for her grandfather one and maybe too soon so how did i'm really excited to interview my dad because i've actually had more requests have him come on the podcast than any guests recently from you guys as an if you are just listening to this podcast and you don't know about my dad i'll just give you a little bit of a back story and then i'm gonna let him kind of tell his story in this really cool way that he's been telling it from the mountains he writes lessons to his grandkids so my dad is a businessman extraordinaire grew up in a small town oldest up six siblings just so very like salta earth kinda guy at work super hard his entire life and then for some reason decided that he wanted his new hobbies what's gonna be somebody saying all seven summit later in life when did you decide to do that i wouldn't to maybe after the one in south america that i knew i could climb to twenty three thousand feet kinda got it to we're not took you're two brothers to to kill majority nap and i fell in love with the mountains and in challenge that it it even though so those were the culture in nature yeah so just give a little bit more backstory to my dad and i competed on day amazing race in two thousand and ten i believe it was in two thousand eleven in an my dad and i have always been very close and a lot of like in a lot of ways an experience today amazing rice together was just amazing an he started climbing mountains after that like i said he you he he's somebody mount everest t that's always the the bugs one that everybody wants to talk about these days especially with every being in the news a lot lately in the danger of everest and the time it takes the clam everson the preparations and you know he's got a lot of really amazing lessons and things that he's learned and thinks he's written his grandkids and that's where they kind of do today on today's podcast we're gonna go through all of these lessons because they are super applicable to life going through a lot of experiences that he had on the mountain seeing you know people that he was close to dying making mistakes on the mountains and you know injuries and stuff like that he wrote these really cool lessons at a plot everyday life and you know a lot of people listening to this podcast it's all about like living her life to the fullest an i think a lotta times to do that you need to hear inspiration and you need here's somebody that's obviously practicing that in their everyday life and i always draw inspiration from my dad and i think a lot of you guys will too so by the way how many people have done all all seven summits in the history of the entire world i think is the numbers up for five hundred that they've done a mall ever and will remind people what the seven summits are at the highest point in each continent so seven continents seven high peaks and that's what they are hell address denali kilimanjaro right k one no no it k one is the is the same continent is is asia so l bruce in europe carson pyramid which is i'm gonna do in august did allio supposed to have done this week but had little problems last trip through nepal in in south america's arkan gagua and then an article is mount vincent that i just did this past february an ever s and there's one more evers elvers fucking gagua denali he'll majora venom all too well it's a google what the other ones or anything you know he knows but yeah so he's done five as were sitting recording this podcast today in the middle of two thousand nineteen an he's actually just come back from a really crazy experience in the paul that he was he was training for denali ended up having some internal bleeding am literally was in the the polly i see you for how many days no eight days four surgeries transfusions and eight wonderful days and the the polly intensive care yeah which was inexperience in itself it was so funny i don't even know if i told you this but whenever we were so we kinda hard to a third party to kind of go back and forth and translate and make sure everything's going well with his care 'cause it got really touching go there for a while an they were talking to my mom and my aunt they ask this guy who was like a navy seal and all this incredible stuff she's like well what happens if my husband just says i'm leaving amy i'm checking out hemoglobin levels to load a fly what happens if if he does that and he was like well typically it wouldn't be good but he said if you're a husband can make it down a mountain with the level of hemoglobin that he had the level of internal bleeding he's a pretty bad dude in he's gonna make it anywhere and they're like okay so yeah that was pretty scary for us but just like everything else in life not too scary for my dad well and that's that's part of the guilt that i feel when i do climbed the you know the family's home in the sacrifice that that i do is physical and and mental but it also puts you you and then you're mom and my parents in a lot of they worry about me and that's a it's it's part of the costs of this journey i've been on in it's part of the things that i tried to justify the reasons why do it you know that's the money cost the time away from home in my family but in work and it's just something that i've always tried to balance out and the stress on my family is one of the biggest things i feel guilty about yeah because i mean from here where like watching the today show and and good morning america and reading these articles and it's like especially lately all you see is the bad all you see her at the people dying andy super scary because once he gets to like level for how many months doesn't take the climbers or weeks it takes two months climate is asian and all you start usually first of april in the peak season is around twenty six to twenty fourth of a murdered okay so like once he gets towards the end though we don't hear from them as austin 'cause they have one satellite phone it's kind of the group they go as you know and so it's their days and then the time change of course where we are just like praying and just you know hoping that hoping for the best the thing is you know a lot of people really like worry in are concerned and anyone would be one of the things that happen happen but i always know like you're you're gonna be okay i always know you're gonna make it because you're just like a freak of nature wealthier mental strength an the decisions that you make you don't make stupid decisions on the mountain back down a promise a promise everybody the i'm knocking down a mountain in you know sometimes you don't have any control over it but most people that i do it because they make bad decisions they make bad calls i think a lot of is a very cautious i've seen people die up there and i'm very cautious about the choice i make in jamaica wrong choice you know has consequences and i know those consequences i've seen i've seen him in action in two thousand sixteen us all over five people died when my own dern expedition a lot of them were up top even this year brenda that climb vincent which is one of the ones on the news lately and he frozen lost three fingers and denali last year and he wore a minute necklace that celtics in he passed away last week on the top of every yeah so you know that's that's part of a high risk type of endeavor like that you think about the consequences and and you plan around those you plan on not gonna there's no mountain top is important as me getting back to my family yeah that's what i've always said the promise of turned around twice turned around once in south america on a mountain no they didn't feel good about turned around the first time i did everest i was probably three hundred meters from the top and then i didn't have any choice this time lewis has a leading the death on i couldn't i couldn't up or down so you know when to just turn and run yeah and that that kind of brings me to one of my my favorite listen so he did about twelve lessons and they all came from like different experiences that he had whatever is this last time that either debrosse an lesson eight is really an awesome what a one that's a political to this podcast and just life in general he says if you're not growing you're slowly dying and he talks about how how risks make you feel more alive you know kind of help people play it safe in their wives and they said easy goals an they pursue the things in her live gutter logical an and i just feel like that's so true an i i wanna hear you talk a little bit more about that lesson first and foremost 'cause i think that's one that everyone including myself i'll let you hear about this one so you know all of these were conversations a you know ford was just born and i don't know if i knew his name yet then but other writing things i learned about what i was doing an end sitting in a tent for two months just to what's your thoughts there's a lot of things that you do and you think about and what i decided to do is write it down in this one of whom that i think the lesson was to take risk in the you know not as much about living life on the edge but but taking it in a normal route taking it easy allows you know when you take chris you've gotta innovate you gotta create you gotta have strong face whereas a path that is easier and more logical you don't have that you don't have to rely on any of that so you know that was a message that i gave to my grandkids in its way outlive my life to i'd love to climb mountains loved fly airplanes planes i love to do things that are kind of risky in requires tremendous focus and that's the message owes tron leaper forward i think that's great too because i feel like more and more so than when you were taking a lot of risk early in your career and your business i feel like these days because of the distractions and the noise from social media and just you know the complacency of a of a lot of people i feel like you know people are taking as many risks people would just kind of sitting around and unfortunately i think a lot of people's labs are passing by an i think that's just such a wonderful lesson because you know in a lot of lessons are about like the mistakes that happen sometimes when you take the risks owning the mistakes and that leads me to the next lesson which would lessen seven it's like were going backwards here but you talk about mistakes in lesson seven and you talk about what was the mistake i think it was you didn't secure crampons tampons hit a pack which are that's how you climbed the ice right yeah yeah that's a base of the ice falls and you wake up at one o'clock in the morning you you had you pack that night pre packed and you you load up one o'clock you are probably an hour and a half before you start climbing the ice falls and you go to crampons point to where you you start climbing scaling these vertical blocks of ice will get to cramp on point and i i only have one cramp on streamer crampons and it was it was kind of embarrassing i turn around and go all the way back base camp and it was too late permitted joined the rest of the team they went on in continued on without me and i went back to the ten crampons sitting out front so i fell in the loss cramp on but i talk about you know instead of saying well someone took my crampons sec in in there were there were a lot of reasons why it happened it wouldn't be the security secure did it with my leader that took the crampons out of the bag just say white she was showing me but acknowledging the fact and should have checked that as a very important part of my claim climbing gear and it was my fault you know in so many times i find people that make mistakes they wanna blame other people they wanna blame instead of a look looking for calls her reason what what i could have done the change in in in this case you know i will never lose a cramp on because always check back twice in you know in in those were things that i could control in the things i can't control then i'll let him go on a leave him alone and i just concentrate on what what could have done yeah or the situation but that that was one of the points to own your mistakes learn from it change what you can yeah i think that's a that's a really great when i feel like at times in my life i've tried the fight place blame i wouldn't own mistakes and it's a it's a totally different road i feel like when you do you own your mistakes and you learn from it such a cliche thing that a lot of people say oh you're mistakes owner mistakes but but it's so true and you really can i mean learned a lot from your mistakes i've learned the most in my life from my mistakes for sure but another not not mistake that you made but another kind of like pitfall that you were talking about in lesson three the potato hato seller lesson so explain a little bit about the be aware of potato sellers in kind of what happened to one of the members have you're team no happened in the freak accidents you know things like that we were just above nom shooting and just probably a weaker to into are harmonization climbed we weren't even to base camp in the end you become such good friends with this team that you climb with and you care about the team members so we've already bonded in one of her climbers and australian lady we called her karate loser third attempt to climb and you know ever since the young man sport in karate is was in her fifties and she's attempted it three times but we walk into a teahouse were which is where we stay we get her food and she fell in there is an open trap door as you walk in that they stored there potatoes and she fell into potato seller in ended up turner a ligament in her leg in her shoulder in had to be airlifted out or expedition is over week after started wow so my my lesson there from that experience is it's not how many potato sailors and you're mistakes if you fall into the tight dust yourself off get up and continue to go yeah what a freak thing to oh yeah reoccurring having him people's lies all the time whether they're clown they're not i feel like it's like who would have thought that would be her injury injury yeah in a potato ciller hold us back just two weeks ago in a crowded into say the seller to richardson it to her so we are you talking about like just like you just said like everest is young man sport and you talk about one of the climbers that i think was one of the congress that you lost i think his name was bernard it wasn't a lesson six and you talked about i think he was seventy three his oldest member of your team right right tell me a little bit about him and then he gave you a lesson ted to pass onto for it i think yeah he had pro hid indoors you the the the pros the best shortfall in the mountains twenty summits he may wow in that season he bernard who's gonna go as high as he possibly could go and he didn't have he didn't have a plan zone getting one oxygen but he was hoping to make his camp to we did did a couple high passes and we did a half pass through the ice falls which required a lot of real skills climbing skills and you know in in he said that was his evers you climbed as high as he possibly could hughes you know when i told him about you know writing these lessons to grandkids you told the team even leaving and i said what can i give what did you learn in what can i leave for lesson from my grandson so that's the only one of the lessons of written by someone else in any any said don't let anyone define you're some don't let it be one define how high you could climb you said i know my some is fifty five hundred meters in his because i climbed on new window turnaround and a defined what i could do not someone else yeah i really liked that lesson because usually when i hear someone tell you don't let anyone defined you're limit it's about reaching higher and like reaching higher then people saying but i think that's really valuable lesson because a lot of people think that they have to reach a certain level they have to do certain things in their life other people kind of set expectations from an end maybe they're happy you know being a mom and staying home in an raising children maybe that's their their summit and they don't you know you you don't have to run your own business and raise their children end do all these things i i think as long as like that's truly the summer for you and that is truly like the limit for you and what you want to achieve i think you need to own it and i i think that's awesome that that's his everest fifty five hundred meters of the twenty nine thousand whatever fate think that's really coalescing around about way in in in you're right you don't have to climb mountains to be happy but you've got to find what makes you happy and i think that's one of my lessons and not let other people people define it you can't let someone say well you're gonna be happy for the rest of your life if you climb amount that's not necessarily you're you've got a defined your own happiness and let's talk about it in one of my lessons and if you don't define what makes you happy then and other people will and yeah you'll always fall short you'll always you'll never you'll never you'll you'll you'll always be looking at a talk about don't don't furrier happiness because what happens people wait one in five years i'm gonna retire or next year i'm gonna go on vacation have a good time when those five years you're gonna miss a lot of points that make you happy or net year waiting for that one vacation you know you you pass up or you don't pay attention you're not in the moment and you don't see you know a child and make his first step or something when you're you child wakes up in the morning smile at you and you gloss over those looking for future happiness and i guess my messaging that one is happiness is right in front of you and don't don't for happiness and and do it now yeah that's a that's a great lesson and it reminds me to of one of the lessons that you do you had from an article when you climb that mountain all those ones that we just talked about what from everest and will go back to some of those but you talk about get out of the noise whether it's the noise of other people's expectations like you were just referring to whether it's the noise of social media i catch myself doing it sometimes like how checked out are you when you're just looking at the phone all the time you just you just missed so much because there's so much noise and constant thoughts coming into your head that you just i feel like sometimes like my mind is just there's words in it all the time every this you know thoughts thoughts in thoughts it never is still and you you talk about that yeah i think you have to get out of the noise a little bit to be able to do what you just said and find happiness in the simple things sayings yeah i mean i think it's so cool to about you're journey in your life you did you started huge companies if people define success by typically means of success by money an end status and things that you left on this world that are like actual marks i mean you are the most successful but you also chose to raise her family out here where we are right now recording this podcast literally in the middle of nowhere i mean we grew up on a farm bond with twentythree first cousins on the oldest his parents my parents or grandparents still live there in the middle all of us are just kind of around i feel like you've always value the simple life and simple happiness an kind of getting out of the noise aunt can you just like touch on that 'cause i know you had times in your life where you were running a rat race to in your business flying from lord you were in a different state everyday i feel like and it was so much noise he's doing business with the biggest businesses in that world how do you get out of the noise when you're in the midst of all that and people are demanding so much heavier you gotta take time you you can't like you said social media there's so many things other people you're job you know in you lose track of you know what's important sometimes and what what you need to do and i say get out of the noise in is kind of what i've found spiritually about climate this mountain i'm sitting there for weeks in a tent with nothing but thoughts and that's that's um removed from all communications except for one night on the satellite phone for a few minutes yeah and i get out of the noise so i think about what's important in life and more importantly i think about what's not important in so when i come back always tell everybody you know what this part of the reason why climb when i come back as they go better person because i got out of the noise a thought about what's important in life what's not important in a kind of rebalance and we adjust what i see is going forward is important in in in probably bigger than anything is cutting out what's not important so so you know the getting out of the noise was it was a lesson that you know of of this thinking about you know all these lessons to my grandkids and and i never would have taken the time to write it down in to think deeply about adam until i got allen noise and men and thought about what i wanna do in life and what i wanna do is leave messages from my grandkids make sure that they understand what made me tick and hopefully they could use what i learned in my experiences to leave their laws yeah i i really love that lesson to i love what you're saying about figuring out what's not important i feel like every generation there's a different type of distraction an you know it's social media it sit on the couch watching netflix it's there there are a lot of things these this day and age and it was so funny it reminds me a lot of this lesson we were having a meeting with gary gary v gary vander chuck he's another like really cool guy motivational god just a huge thinker an hustler at his and if you want to really put you life into perspective really quick he said go to an old folks home and tell them about your problems he's at tell them like someone so called me this name on social media or i only got thirty six lex on this picture on facebook and i've been depressed about a two days like all of this stuff an he was like they're gonna look at you be like have you heard of world war two or like you know this is not you do not have a bad in like just the whole put it into perspective in in really figuring out what's not important it's just so funny how you can you could get so caught up in in in these little things and i always wonder like some of the things i even get caught up in i'm like man i'm gonna laugh in five years when i look back and i think oh shoot i spent thirty minutes when sitting at the table when i should have been focused like worrying about this filter this filter on a picture on instagram that's how i feel like i used to think about these tom little things and it's just i really love that lesson moon in another the other thing too and then we were on the race it first time i realized it is is we traveled around the world twice in in when we were in guyana you know i was looking around and you know we didn't eat good we didn't have much but we had a backpack full of items in you know when we're in some of these countries we had as much in that backpack is these people in whole family had you know it it it makes you realize that you know the extensive value we we were wealthy in that situation we had no money but we had we had a backpack stuff in it yeah and we had we own something in you know the the the lesson learned learn in africa and the trip was the smile and these children's faces and you know they were so happy in and they didn't have all the material things and that was something that that learned about in even in mount clemens funds i learned about the cultures and people in an unusually the mountain people were very simple they have they they look pretty hard existence and they they they help climbers but that their life and they enjoy it they love their life to other families just like we do and it's not as much of a rat race seems like on a longer life so yeah i like a lot of people wanna feel sorry for you know people like that but it's like look adam i mean they're happier than half the people that are staying in america with a million times more aunt that's just so wow that's like it's not you know that thing that they say about like how the difference in fifty thousand dollars and or the difference ten thousand dollars and fifty thousand dollars is significant but the difference in fifty thousand in like five hundred thousand or something like that isn't that much just talks about like once you have your basic necessities it's like it's all an internal game it's all it's not about the money in all of that that's what that tony robbins thing the same time it's like gary v thing he said he he works with like thirty billionaires on a really regular basis and he's a two of them were happy an he said they just you know they can't quit they can't can't they can't ever be satisfied which is probably why they're billionaires but they can't ever you can't turn it off and stop and just enjoy what they have in the world around them and feel like sometimes the beauty of not having a lot in their culture not being centered around consumer items is that you know it's it's a lot easier to find happiness without all that noise and and all that hustling and striving and that's something else to you know everybody in arse society and not everybody a lot of people hustle it's like a it's a tag word right now everyone's talking about hustle hustle hustle and making all this money and doing all these things and i feel like a lot of people kind of just get caught up in the hustle like they wanna work all the time they wanna do and do and do an i think it's you talk a lot about balance andy you exemplified balance if you really did hustle in a very big way but you know finding balance is a real skill that still i struggle with today i think a lot of people probably struggle touch a little bit on that 'cause that's actually something even before you start doing the mountains i feel like you talked about this all the time balance in your life and not amount lessons i love hearing talk about that a little bit but it is it is a mountain lewis and this is kind tied all of the balance a lot of times i would go to the mountains to look for balance you know i would be upside down i worked all the time you know you gotta balance like i had four kids and a wife inside the balance my time time with sale raising the al west of busy work schedule an annual so it's something i learned on the on the mountain is is quite chasing money you know and then people say that's easy to say because you've got enough of it in really is not in the amount of money god it's the fact that you choose to balance your life choose nachos you know earlier in my career to to you know make it important for a family life my spiritual life my physical life because uncollected it for a long time you know i i worked so much at all three of those were being sacrifice and you know i i i look at that and say well that could be a better parent and that could be healthier person be around longer that could be more spiritual and in all three of those things are important in probably more important the money and then my work and stan hustling in one of those things is that i learned in the comment about finding out what's not important and it's it took me a while it's probably in my fifties before figure out that money's not that important and that was one of the thing said got everybody says that way you're crazy busy road and you don't need anymore you families rates and that's true that's a statement that could say now that i probably wouldn't said went up twenty or thirty or forty or even fifty but you know i always fought the balance between working too much and trying to accomplish things in in in other things were important in my life and same thing with climbing mountains it's a balanced to you still have a family that worries about me i still work you know in a in a i don't want to get imbalance but where i just obsess about the next mountain which i'm accused of quite a bit but there is a plan there's a planet in the thing i see about the climbing mountains it's not it's not it's not monetary in fact it's reverse monetary i spent a lot of money climbing mountains but it it's things that helped me grows a person in things that i've learned more about myself in doing these and i think because of that a comeback or violence yeah yeah and just like touch on it so it's i love like so many of the stories that just proves the things that you say now i mean you didn't come from no one handed you you any capital to start you know you're business kind of in the beginning you took out a second mortgage on you're home as did you're brothers i'm pretty sure is the story an you know six that's back then in your twenties i feel like a lot of people define success this as as money it's it's an easy goal and if you were saying i wanna be a millionaire by the time i'm thirty that was like you go you had no money to get a mortgage when you're home struggled stride and then now like to hear you say you come back and it's not that important i agree with you now to it's not that important but that's just a really interesting lesson but yeah not sacrificing balance over making money that's hard for a lot of people i think you could it could be the you know things that you think are good for you know help you go you could get off sides with that i will climbing mountains and a climb with a bunch of young guys and these guys some of them have young families some of mortgage their house ciller cars to climb the mountain and you know it's crazy it's like like nothing in those were the guys sometimes push it a little too hard and it's so critical that they get to the top that mountain that they sacrifice sacrifice everything you do the same thing with business you'll sacrifice your family you're you're friends with religion you can go overboard there so so you you know the boards of balance is just a something of always coach checked myself yeah and that's that's a great great lesson and i you know here's just a couple more points i wanna make before we wrap it up because this such an amazing podcast and i feel like i could have like ten podcast with my dad because he has so many valuable lessons but this one is one of my favorites and i wanna make sure we talk about it that you did you learn from an article that you learn from your whole life but you have and you're an article section procrastination complacency will derail your goals an ad unnecessary stress to life when i read this one whenever he was on the mountains he he used the city's to us over email and i was like oh shoot that one speaks straight to me because one of my struggles still to this day we do a lot we get a lot done procrastination adds so much stress unnecessary stress in my life and it's like just do it i don't know why that's just such a hard thing it's just one of my crutches in life and i think that's a great lesson because they will derail your goals as you spent so much time just in your head and writing down the same thing over and over and then there's always this to do list in your head you can't ever clear it out i love that lesson that in the kind of the what it is you're right it's it's about using sin is something bothers me that i learned it in a book i read cody frog and it's taken taken taken the biggest thing that is bother you that day and attacking getting it out of your hair in a learned the lesson and artika because there's so much preparation so cold you you get to you get you can't you gotta build ice wall around it you gotta melt water you gotta do all this stuff and you're exhausted you all you wanna do is sit down restaurant and put it off i'll i'll wait till i feel better i wait until i do this and in in kind of the messages around that is is to really be diligent to get things done that you need to get on and and then if not you're sitting there trying to arrest tired i'm gonna rest then you're laying down sam webb to have enough surgical yeah or do i had my food ready and have eaten enough denied have i got enough closed all in you know in those types of things called stress and the same thing with life you know eat the frog you know the united is kind the term of whatever's bothering you the most spend the time to get that out of your hair you know it may be unpleasant conversation you gotta have somebody that you work with that you don't like the direction but those are usually things in and they cause stress and after you do you feel just a a burden lifted off high end you feel so much better for having on the so the lesson is you worked on early and enjoy the what you've accomplished yeah and i'm just gonna i'm gonna read through these last three that we were gonna talk about because you could actually truly my dad has a website called gary climb mountains dot
