Understanding a Journalist's Sixth Sense
"So stories like Ricky Morton and Justin Bieber, and you've heard enough about me talking about Britney Spears, but all those stories, they don't come to a journalist in a nice, pretty box with a bow on top. We don't get the answer to these stories like that. And these are the kind of stories we won't find out about. Well, we won't find out what was really wrong until many years from now when these people sit down with whoever the next Oprah Obama Walt dish is, right? So in the meantime, in the meantime, that leaves people like me and other journalists, journalists who've hauled their skills after many years of chasing stories to figure out what's going on. I like to say that I have a Spidey sense when it comes to these sorts of stories and my Spidey sense has been right way more than it's been wrong. It's probably operating at 85%. You develop when you work as a journalist, this ability to use this 6th sense, not because you're some mystic. But because you've covered so many stories in 20 some odd years, you tend to know where they're going to go. It's like a cop tracking down a criminal or an animal or a predator chasing down prey. You know where the animal's going to go. So you don't have to make all the calls right away to the publicist and the sources you know. You know, you can probably start out with saying, oh, I know this is going. I think I have an idea.
Ricky Martin Files $20 Million Extortion Lawsuit Against Nephew
"We spoke about Ricky Martin's lawsuit and his nephew coming after him about a month ago with this allegations of sex and some kind of affair they had, which is gross to think about. So now Ricky Martin and this all tie into my background and the newspaper and TV show the morning show. Ricky Martin is now saying, you know, he was persecuted, besieged, harassed, stalked, and extorted by this maladjusted person, also known as his nephew. And now he is suing who made these wild accusations against him. Ricky filed a lawsuit the other day against Dennis yadriel Sanchez, who the singer claims is trying to assassinate his reputation. Dennis, yadiel Sanchez, had claimed back in July that he had a 7 month long romance with Ricky Martin and when it ended, Ricky began stalking and harassing him. Something Ricky says his all bullshit, their feud filed a restraining order, but when the heat was on him, he withdrew the whole thing, and everybody said, oh, well, that means that it's all baloney. It was never true. So now Ricky is suing him. Because Ricky claims a month after Dennis withdrew that restraining order, he began sending messages to Ricky through Instagram, threatening to assassinate his reputation as integrity unless he came up with some big dough to shut him up. Ricky Martin says in the lawsuit before Dennis filed for a restraining order, he was publicly telling everybody about being Ricky's nephew, he was bombarding him with messages, sometimes more than ten in a single day for four months straight. And the messages Ricky says were clearly written by a mala adjusted individual. He says that if you just went rogue, posting Ricky's cell phone number on his Instagram. The nephew even, and this is gross. The nephew even made an Instagram account for one of Ricky's children. That's going way too far.
Ranked Choice Voting Is Coming to a State Near You
"Really haven't taken this nearly as seriously as they should. So we learned in Alaska recently, just last night, Sarah Palin was defeated, but she moves on to the general election in the November election ranked choice voting runoff or the four person primary there, but the Democrat who won the ranked choice voting here ends up filling the vacant Democrat seat for the next month and a half in Washington, D.C., or two months, and then they have to rerun in November. So it's not a huge loss. It's nothing that significant that regard. But it does show and it should be a warning about what rank choice voting means for our civilization for our republic and for how we select leaders. So rank choice voting. I know this is murky and it's murky by design. And I know this might not resonate with you, but I'm telling you right now, this is the most important technical thing happening right now in American politics that if we say we don't care about it, all of a sudden you are going to see moderates and Democrats win in red states and you'll be like, oh, I remember when Charlie did that segment on the voting ranked choice thing. Why don't we take it seriously then? And it's coming to a state near you. In fact, it's already implemented in several states on local elections and presidential primaries. I'm going to name every single state that already has ranked choice voting. So ranked choice voting stems from basically a college thought experiment. It stems from a bunch of kids that say, oh, we're too radical and we need to try to find the second or third place winner because deep down most people actually want the moderate to win. Now, this is nonsense. It's garbage. It also gives preference to the loser. As Ricky Bobby would say, if you are second place, you're the first loser. So the winner, the person who actually wins the most amount of votes isn't the winner in a ranked choice system if they don't get more than 50 plus percent votes. Now, I know we're going to get emails from people in Alaska that say, well, Charlie this is the way we do it here. And someone in Maine, every state has their own algorithm, might be 40% might be 50%. It's unbelievably confusing.
Suspect killed after trying to breach FBI field office

Did Ricky Martin's Nephew Get Manipulated to Claim Sexual Abuse?
"I think all of us agree that the story about Ricky Martin having this affair with his nephew sounded a little insane and in the league of that can't be true, could it? Well, turns out it wasn't true at all. In fact, less like it was all along, maybe it played for a big payout variety reported today that following Ricky's testimony, Thursday morning, the nephew withdrew is complaint in the case has been dismissed. As such, the temporary restraining order filed by the nephew was not extended. And Ricky's attorney said, this was never anything more than a troubled individual making false delegations with absolutely nothing to substantiate them. We're glad that our clients saw justice done and can now move forward with his life and his career. I have to wonder, though, if someone put this kid up to this, did someone get in this young kid's head and promise him a nice payout if he alleged this? Because what's still out there is the first thing Ricky was dealing with. And that is that he was facing and still is facing a $3 million lawsuit filed by his former manager, Rebecca drunker, feasts Christ with a name, Rebecca drunker, and she still seeking unpaid commissions in which she accused Ricky of reckless indiscretions, abhorrent behavior, and this is what got everybody interested, having a personal life in disarray. And after she filed that, a few days later, came to bombshell about him banging his nephew. I don't know. In my game, where there's smoke, there's almost certainly fire.
"ricky" Discussed on Netflix is A Daily Joke
"If a cat was big enough, it would kill you and eat you. They're the opposite to dogs, right? Yeah, this sums up the difference between cats and dogs once and for all, right? The cat has got a barbed penis. True. Google it. Careful. But a barbed penis. Two reasons. One, it holds the female in place during mating. So it slides in easy. There goes all run. Oh, you can't. Two, when it withdraws, that pain causes the female to ovulate. Think of a different way mate. That much, maybe there is a God, because I mean, maybe he did cats and dogs, because he went boom. There you go. Cats and dogs. You're ballpark very mammals. You live at home. It's a good gig, you get fed. What sort of penis for you? Hoping for a dog. It doesn't matter whatever you be the best penis ever. Whatever. Just some of the matches may onesie, just a little. Look, maybe a little furry mouse. I'm a lady dogs with like a little furry mound with a little pink lipstick in it. Furry lipstick, good choice. Give me a fuck stock with hooks. The cat is the only animal that domesticated south. True. Just wandered into civilization about 10,000 years ago. And when feed me. They made the meow up for us. They don't do that in the first day. They learned that we are. And it works. I let my cat do anything it was. Sleep when it was like go where it wants. If we get a parcel in the post, if I undo it, right? And if she gets in a box, I can't throw it away. We've got about 17 all over the mansion. And if we're watching television, if it gets in our lap with, oh, that's such a privilege. We don't move. Even if we need a wee, we don't want to disturb it. The other one gets the drinks all night. People say to me, you spoil that cat. Yeah, I do. It's a cat. It's not a person. What's the worst that can happen? If you spoil a cat, do you know what I mean? It doesn't grow up to be fucking Boris Johnson. Watch Ricky Gervais, supernature, only on Netflix.
Is Trailblazer Rickie Fowler Headed for the LIV Tour?
"What we can definitely say without a doubt in our minds about Liv golf is that they are getting personalities, right? Remember when Ricky and I are the same age. Remember when Ricky came out 12 years ago and everybody wanted to talk about Ricky, that was it because he was the first guy that wasn't wearing khaki pants with triple pleats and cuffs and huge baggy shirts. He was the first guy that revolutionized kind of the look of the golfer. And he caught a lot of shit for it for years. And now what? Now what's everybody doing? Now what's everybody wearing when they go to the course outrageous looking bullshit, they've got khaki pants or not even seen anymore. No one wears khakis anymore, but Ricky started all that. People forget that Ricky was kind of a trailblazer 12 years ago on the modern golfer. And he's still relevant today. People, Ricky's not relevant, hadn't been relevant for years. Bullshit. Ricky's been pumas number one salesman until Bryson came along for 8 or 9 years. So I think it's as smart of the live tour to go after these guys that not only are they going to play great golf, their personalities and they're going to talk to the media and they're going to put content on social media. That's not going to get pulled down by they don't even say that their employer. They're 10.99. So they're pulling their shit down. It's not going to get pulled down or any of this dumb shit that's been happening on the PGA

Marilyn Monroe Look-Alike Suzie Kennedy Discusses Free Speech
"We are back with the most famous, the most famous, Marilyn Monroe lookalike comedian actress, just a fun lady to know Susie Kennedy follow her right now on Twitter Suzy. I like the cut of your jib, not simply because you can get into Marilyn's dresses. Oh my he is such a sexist, slap that man behave. But because you're outspoken, you are, you know, you go on these interviews, you did the three three speech podcast that great guy farm podcast, then you want James well. And then we were talking about abortion. We were talking about the Supreme Court ruling. And then James said to you and me, because you're a vow, Chris, you said, you religious people. No, you religion. He called you religion, people, and you stood out for your rights. And also in recent tweet of yours, you said, you stood up for being against those who would like to censor you as a performer or a comedian. So talk about what it means to actually take a stand on these issues as somebody who's so much in the public eye. Well, the thing is, I actually don't think I'm outspoken. What I think I am and people do accuse me of that. I'm just tell what I think, and I think that's really important that we free speech, even if I don't agree with you. So the comment I made about a comedian is that I love the fact that we have Dave Chappelle. I love the fact that we have Ricky Gervais, but I also like the fact that we have nish Kumar, who are pitted against each other. Right. So the political identity doesn't matter, the fact is that they get to say what they want to say. Yes. And do you know what? I'll be honest with you. When people say, oh, you should say whatever you want. Most people do not say things with the intention to hurt or hate. And if you're scared to say anything because straight away, someone's going to be her or think you hate them. That's not true. Jesus loved everybody. But he told the truth.
Dinesh on the Controversy Around Ricky Gervais’ New Comedy Special
"Well, Ricky Gervais is back. This time with his new Netflix special, it's called super nature. That means I'm going to watch tonight. We saw a little clip on social media, really great stuff, taking on identity politics, taking on the trends issue. And look, you know, interesting thing about Ricky Gervais, and I think probably the same thing could be said of Dave Chappelle. Here are a few quotes from Gervais. He goes, he goes, I'm going to leave it into annoy people. He goes, in other words, comedy is not about respecting taboos. He goes, I talk about aids, famine, canceled the Holocaust rape pedophilia, but know the one thing you mustn't joke about his identity politics. He goes, the one thing you should never joke about is the trans issue. They just want to be treated equally. He goes, I agree. That's why I include them. What a profound statement. You want to be treated equally. Well, that includes the right to be lambasted along with the rest of us. So Ricky Gervais is not willing to make some kind of immunity. And Netflix now I think is beginning to realize that look, you know, it's one thing to start Netflix has a woke staff. And when Chappelle did his special called the closer, the Netflix left us all said, what we're going to do a walkout and they were trying to bring the company to its knees. But it seems like Netflix even though run by a leftist big Obama worshipper. They kind of Netflix regrouped. And I think they realized, wait a minute, you know, we, we got rid of Luis. CK, we got rid of Bill Burr. We got rid of Dave Chappelle. We got rid of Ricky Gervais. Well, who's left? What happens to comedy when comedy becomes nothing more than something that is captive to the prejudices of this woke

Smylie Kaufman Discusses His Spring Break Trip
"Think we wouldn't be good credible journalists if we didn't talk about smiley's partial nudity, it's spring break. Yeah, we need to talk about partial nudity here on spring break. How did that trip? How did that trip come? You've probably talked about a million times, but the people want to know more than anything. How did that trip come about? That was the week after Augusta, wasn't it? It was two weeks after. So I think Ricky and JT decided to play Hilton head the following week. And JT, thanks to me about going on to bakers. I guess I was first alternate and got in. The fourth was at the time. And I was at it as a fourth. Which was awesome. I was like, cool. Those three guys are great. Love them all. And so we had known were going on this trip prior to Augusta. So going into the final group of Augusta, I've known Jordan like casually, but I had been on a trip with them. We went to different schools, you know, we didn't really talk a ton in college. So our first really time we played together was at Augusta on Sunday and so we knew we were about to go drink a lot of beers together, but we knew it was going to happen later. So we were like, all right, and so after that trip, you know, hey man I both obviously had steam we needed to get out. And just from playing bad. And then I think JT or Rick both shot a million at Hilton head. We get to baker's coming in hot. Like, I mean, all four of us are white. We played some really bad golf. We need to drink a million beers. And yeah, we just had a hell of a time. And Rick was pretty big on social media at the time, obviously. He's always been pretty big on it. And so is JT. This was kind of when Rick was a big social media guy. And Jordan really didn't do a whole lot. I had probably 5, 10,000 followers at the time at the end of the trip. I had so many. It was just like, what is going on? A lot of people here. People like the content. We were just being, you know, I think it was just we were being ourselves and it was a

"Up in 50 cent town, dude. I didn't know Bruce. The boss. I didn't know that's what we were going to call him. He came out. People, I thought they were bowing them. I was like, this is a weird show. 15 minutes into that Broadway show. I was using my mask to wipe my tears. It was amazing. Once I put it that he makes people feel comfortable being creative. And it's interesting. Do you feel like you were ever uncomfortable being creative and what does it mean to then I think when you're working with people of that high stature and people that have the past that he has and the current or how people look at him and yeah, you're a little nervous to start spitting ideas out because his ideas usually the best. And he there is none of that. There was none of that. A lot of the stuff he preaches is lose the ego. And I think that made just made it comfortable to work. Yeah. We'll be right back with more Ricky piles. The new HBO Max original documentary series, the way down, God greed and the cult of Gwen shamblin explores the legacy of the remnant churches infamous leader. After rising to fame with her way down workshop, a Christian based diet program, Gwen Shamblin Lara founded the remnant fellowship church to further her message. Despite a carefully curated image, Lara and the church soon fielded accusations of abuse and exploitation for their alleged cult like practices. The way down, God greed and the cult of Gwen shamblin is now streaming on HBO Max. And we're back with Ricky velez. So you're in the middle of developing a show with Judd and Judy Miller. And I'm sure you can't talk about details about it, and that's totally fine. But I wanted to ask about a thing about what it's like to work with jud specifically and from what I understand he'll often be like, you'll start with whatever the true story is. And then there's like a has people rewrite and rewrite rewrite to a point where it is more emotionally true in some ways, but less about the autobiographical details. And I just want to know what it feels like to think about what is how can I express the truth of my story that it's not expressing the autobiographical details of my story. Doesn't make you think about truth as it relates to you and the audience. Like, I'll use other people's movies as an example. Yeah, to be like, with Kamala and Emily, kumail and Emily had an experience where she was in the hospital. And they wrote essentially the first draft I believe of the movie was basically like this is exactly what her life was like. And then jud was like, we'll make him this and make him go through he is possibly having an arranged marriage and making little changes to his life to make it a more a story that makes more sense to an audience that almost feels more honest than the actual details of kumail's life, or king of Staten Island. It's like, I think what jud does better than other people is he really develops characters heavily. We know everything about these characters while we're writing for them. So it feels so real. That because it's easy to write for somebody you know, even if they're not real. And you spend that much time doing character development in writing with Judd. Yeah. Yeah. What's it like to think of yourself as a character? Myself as a character. I mean, isn't that part of the game? Yeah. And what is that like? For people who that isn't part of the game. It's weird because it's like, where? In the script, how do I feel about being a character or in this industry? I don't know. I mean, it's all of it. The person you're on stage. I think the on stage is the most honest I am. And that's where I feel no one can change that. That's where I have full control. I like being on. I'm excited for the special to come out because I think that's the most honest thing to me. That's how my brain works. That's how I'm thinking. You know, you kind of come in here. You've got to do podcasts and you've got to do the rest of that. You kind of watching your step nowadays when you do it. So when you're doing stand up and your society to be who you are and you're going to be okay with it, I think that's honest. Yeah. It reminds me you're on pause with Sam Jay and you and Sam had an interesting debate. Let's say, and about the idea of going through an old tweet and I think you've voiced something that I'm not sure I heard before, which is essentially like no one is forcing anyone to be a famous person to pursue international or whatever mainstream show business success. You can be a comedian, you don't have to work at whatever job. Yeah, I have a lot of friends that do those jobs. Yeah. And I am very lucky. And I get to do certain jobs and be a part of things because I did it correctly to get here. And I mean, people complain about Twitter and the rest of that. It's like, you pick up the phone, you tweeted it out, and now you want a job about the person you were just talking about. It blows my mind. And I love how people don't understand that networks are backed by commercials and the rest of that. It's like, how'd you think this worked? Is there any part of you that what makes you want to pursue a mainstream show business? I don't know if I want to. I don't know what I want to do truly. I just want to continue to do stand up that people like. I think my stand up kind of sits on the line of what's okay and what's not. And I think at the same time, you can do that correctly. Yeah. What does that mean? I mean, I don't think, you know, I don't think I've spent any time taking people down that I wasn't at one point. And I think that's how I like to put out my judgment. I'll judge based on things I've done personally. I want to talk more about the special and specifically as you were talking about how parenting is a big part of it and especially the special opens with you saying you're coming to terms with that your brain doesn't work good. And I feel like I want to talk about what parenting represents. And if you're comfortable, you feel like you've had a particularly intense period around the idea of parenting where 5 years ago, your mom passed away. And first, I'm really sorry for your loss. Thank you. That really sucks. And then around the same time, it seems that you lost contact with your father or something happened around there. And then also you're in this position we're about to have a kit. And what were you thinking about parenting in this period? You know, this is also a period where the nightly show ends you're doing stand up seemingly much more how did all sort of stew together? What was it about? The nightly show was way done at this point. At this point, I was doing a lot of stand up. I actually had just linked up with Aziz, I was basically going on the road with P and he was headlining then out feature and then I would kill so hard they would bring me back a month later. And I think when all that stuff happened, you know, I come from a place where there's a stigma about therapy and the rest of that. And I really stayed away from it for a long time. But once I was put in the position of like, I didn't want all my problems on the back of my kit, so I went ahead and dealt with them head on. Yeah. And I mean, don't get me wrong, I still sit in the grief of my mother daily. There's all this stuff that's been going on doing late night doing the rest of that. It just sucks that she's not a part of it. Yeah. I brought my mom to Montreal comedy festival. Yeah. When I got variety top tenon, my mom, my mom, yo, this is real shit. My mom. When I didn't get new faces, I auditioned for new faces once. My mom wrote a whole post cursing out Jeff singer. Which is funny now. Yeah, she's gone. But yeah, and she was like, if you give variety top ten, I'm calling Montreal with you. And then I got variety top ten. We went to Montreal together. And knowing that what did you want to talk about when you were talking about as it relates to your parenting and you were talking about the parenting that you're exposed to, what did you feel like you wanted to express?.

"ricky" Discussed on Ghost Town
"Basically always traveling from one side to the other To start a new job and I was trembling through the central stri. Which is very desolate. And i stopped to help some people who pretended to be breaking down on the side of the road with their vehicle and i helped one of them let them in my vehicle and ended up getting dragged and mugged and lifted in the middle of the desert. We love survivor story on ghost town especially ones that still feel a little ambiguous mysterious. Maybe like someone's not telling the entire truth. I don't know the story. I found it. I liked it. It's one of those. E compelling frightening and often gross story of ricky mcgee. Ricky mcgee was born in nineteen seventy and gypsum and victoria. He called his childhood pretty happy until his family moved to melbourne where his father unfortunately committed suicide after this incredibly traumatic event. Mcgee left school to work a bunch of jobs. He was an electrician carpet. Salesmen shrimp fishermen bailiff. Unfortunately mcgee went to jail after getting into a fight and for some other not related drug offenses. He served his time and then moved to queensland. In january two thousand six mcgee was thirty five and had just been offered work in a government agency in port hedland part of western australia. He took the job and set off on the bunting highway to drive from queensland to port hedland in his two thousand one mitsubishi challenger. It was a very long thirty nine hour drive but one he'd made a couple of times before the agency. He was hired at confirms the story but the events that happened afterward. Get a little bit. Hazy mcgee's version of what happened to him changes over time in between interviews. He first told his rescuers that his car had broken down and he blacked out later. He claimed he had picked up an aboriginal hitchhiker between the towns of calgary and halls creek at some point while magee said that although he normally always opened his own drinks from his car refrigerator yes he had a car refrigerator pretty cool. He had the hitchhiker open one for him. The hitchhiker drugged his drink. And he passed the fuck out even later in his twenty. Ten autobiography left for dead. How i survived. Seventy one days lost in a desert. Hell yes spoiler alert. Mcgee said that they were three men sitting on the roadside who ran out of gas. He offered to get one of them a lift to a nearby gas station and that man poisoned him or maybe snagged him with a syringe during a struggle anyway overpowered him stunned him and he blacked out in this version. He awakens feeling increasingly dazed and confused hours. Later he regains consciousness in a camp with a bunch of people. Someone in the camp had a gun but didn't use it. People on the camp brought him water and then all of them took their camp and kind of took off but before they left they stole mcgee's shoes and left him with a headphone and fourteen dollars and fifty cents in his pocket. Then after this he blacks out again and again regains consciousness this time. He's in a whole covered in black plastic which he had some rocks and dirt thrown on top of him. He awakens to the attempts by four dingoes to clot him and gets up and like starts to figure out what he needs to do next. So what's next is walking and lots of it. Mickey walks for ten days through the to nami desert. An area the size of france italy and spain combined he was in and out of consciousness. Enduring a lot of heat exhaustion and temperatures above one hundred four degrees fahrenheit. Mcgee said that he survived by eating plants and catching and eating frogs lizards snakes insects leeches and by drinking water from various dams and water holes scavenging around in the bush in an interview with abc radio. He said i ate the leaches. Ross straight out of the damn grasshoppers. I just ate them. But the only thing i really sort of had to cook was the frogs which i slipped in a bit of wire and stuck the wire on top of my humpty the word for as little camp let the sun dry them out a fair bit until they were a bit crispy and then just ate them he also tried to eat a cockroach quote. It didn't even really eat it. I put it in my mouth bit down and spat it back out again. The tastes stated my mouth for two days. A little frogs were pretty tasty though he'd walk during the day and every evening eat his only meal one at the end of the night just enough to stay alive. When water was unavailable he drank his urine after. Chilling it to make it less urine flavored. I guess it was incredibly hot in the daytime and incredibly cold at night and as he walked he created temporary shelters out of old branches a feed trough and a windmill. He lived in the feed trough for ten weeks hanging out in the cattle yards. Trying to survive at a certain point mcgee became dangerously week so much so that he didn't have the strength that catches meals at night anymore. He suffered a near-fatal obsessive his tooth. At one point it didn't kill him. The pain got so bad that he pride the tooth out of his mouth with his own car keys. Let's take a break a you.

You can mistake different to better not to site that we shouldn't keep on learning on and look at best practice. Know i think the fundamental it needs to be remembered. Is that football club.

Kids will supernanny who act off all the time. No like at the end behaving Like children need structure and sometimes depending on the child they enjoy structure. Unfortunately ricky was was born into a situation that didn't allow him to thrive in any way and and as much as you know child services are important it does kind of become a numbers game and unfortunately it's usually the first sort of department aside from the odds that get their budgets cut and be expected to do more than they were even doing with. The reasonable budget are so i. It's not necessarily two pooh-poohed child services but it obviously wasn't an ideal situation for him and many other kids as well and he just wanted to find his way into the world and they're very contrasting components in regards to the dynamic because ricky was so ready to experience the world but he had been through so much and heck contrastingly also had been through a lot but he's like no. I've had enough. I don't wanna feel. I don't want to be any happier if it means i can lose someone again so i really love the reciprocity between the two of them.

Let's get into some general discussion in regards to the film. I'm going to guess you're going to say ricky. Where do you wanna stop. Let's go for aching so we've kind of already touched on ricky's journey throughout the film I i do like that. Unlike boy he does have a name and he has a bit more of a back story to him. Even though i love birth films It was nice to get to know him a little bit better. It really works to the juxtaposition of him being a city kid and being taken to a more rural sort of area right. he's got. It looks very similar to bape. It was big in kenya. I wasn't big if he wasn't fath- of fubu sean. John what else dickey's now that even cross. Oh dicky's was big for islanders or was it. Yeah i don't even know what a dickey is neither do i. But we bought the counterfeit kind because my parents didn't like the way it said dickey's wow we also couldn't afford it but that's a story for another day or just go and listen to the boy.

Yeah it's like saying in the boy episode like when you're a kid you don't know that you're going through shit that you don't even know that you aren't equipped to handle yet for sure for sure. So i think ricky baker takes for me. Yeah at least you. He held onto his innocence. He held onto his sense of herp which diminishes as you grow into adulthood but he held onto that sense of hope but he also had a grappling of the way. The world works as well. And i think that was boasted in the way. Paula left no child behind as well. Yeah i don't think there are any precocious kids in this. How about the lovable fool. Because i feel like we. We learned to love heck we i think not not to say this is a bad thing from a writing point of view but i felt like we knew we were going to love hick even though he was he was going to be like the sunday but not truly yes. I'm a wave coming fucking fight. Me with co knives. Yeah i think. Ricky fits the bill for lovable fool. He's full. i know is not a fool. But he's kind of okay so you're saying it doesn't get here. I think it's sort of halfway through thousands of middle. I think is sort of precocious. And i know you agree. I do feel based on my example. The he is. I think it's sort of. I think the ricky slot precautious. He's gone through a lot of shared and any other possum probably would have been weighted down by the troubles of what defaced. And he finds ways to just move along into unto all. Just take by the chin and just push through. I think i know who the lovable fool is on the three hunters and all had a third of a brain. That's why said the lovable fool one. Did he puts you in pickles off chicago. Wow we're going to lose all of our Kiwi in mary listen all right. Let's move on another character. Usually in tyco's filmography is having a father son dynamic ricky heck yet tick We don't know heck is going to be the father figure of ricky. And despite his veto his best efforts to push him away he did care. You know and he didn't want to allow himself to care because it hurts Exactly and not hurt so good. Yeah so it's definitely met one hundred percent. And i guess kind of going back to the way that hex character is structured. It's completely the opposite of mike. Qualms with vaccari thor ragnarok because with valkyrie we knew she was going to join the crew and she was going to be best pals with all of them but they continue to be a full about will she. Weren't she right so even though we knew that heck was going to become you know that familial tie to ricky. We still enjoy the journey. Getting officer so i i guess that's an interesting Sort of how characters a structured and how we build that emotional bond between the characters as well..

"Day but like we didn't know everything but we knew enough and then it wasn't until he met with caught who later that he actually shared his really And the painful struggle that he had trying to reconcile what it was like. Not having parents right so i feel like the pacing was very beautiful and it was great and it really comes back to As smoke mirror pals talking about belonging Obviously ricky at the epicenter of this film black you mentioned the heck was going through a heck of a lot. I hate myself for that. You have editing. Please take that out. I wouldn't And he's also going through some shit as well that he's trying to work through and i actually. This is a quick question. When when heck and ricky out in the bush ricky talks about is this where the sky meets the water. I think it is soon right. And then head kind of just brushes it off and says that she was kind of like an outcast. Misfit like the rest of us. Do you think that's true. 'cause i kind of wanted to believe that bill did have her and people and earned sense of community as she wanted to go back there. I didn't take think it was just a model of get ricky to shut up a move on sort of thing. He was very old man. Logan yeah Also the dynamic in this film. I think the reason why i love it so much is i. I can recognize it even on this podcast because earthy really was sam neill and i was trying to explain to him. How skulks works. And what scott's means do you know to this day someone cool down with the beat hip hop pop kind of. Why does that seem like morgan. Freeman was trying to down to the beach. He'd be put. Jesus christ but everyone was really trying to find the place in the world except for paula as she was trying to put you in your place. Very different I i also mentioned throughout the episodes that an honorary team if we could impact some more was film references because in boy we have. At you even mentioned the court that was at the start of the film in boy and terminate a makes you are a quarter in the fast major before she could do pull ups and we are very partial to film references friends and lavas. But yeah it was. It was nice to have that sort of levity right and at times we don't even expect it as well. Let's move onto the characters We have charged like one. Does holier a lovely holier from the contrarians. Cost talks about precocious kids and are delightful. Ben from film buses folks about the lovable fool. Do you think any of those women. As the story progresses to lonzo ball. Ricky and the is gone through inasmuch as he portrays himself as this kid who's aloof of moves things..

"But i don't necessarily agree with comedy as a way of dealing with reality because like polynesians pacific islanders. Were very funny people. Just in general like our whole way of saying is very funny. And i know i'm really doing this to wake myself off can couches over there are you george. Clooney smug keeps me. You know what keeps me. Humble the south box muggy desert and george clooney speech i. I did not resolve world poverty. Unfortunately what you think. You're smart enough. Just just listen to a george clooney speech but what i mean by that is like you can. You can be a funny person. But you're not being funny or you're not using it as a way to deflect because a lot of the moments were very heartfelt. I would say in this film as opposed to being slapstick outright. Ha ha ha. You know funny. I think it was necessarily using comedy as a way to get out of the grief. I believe it's mole trying to push through trying to deal with the grief and they're funny peculiar happen that are funny Definitely agree with your points there. All right well let's move onto storytelling. Shut us to smoke and mirror. Patrons belonging all of the films have a common threat of harm and finding a place in it. All deficit matt We have ricky bak- who who is struggling to find where he belongs you know. And when he finally thinks that he's got in a home in bella she is away then. This creates another conflict. Way has to run away before he gets back into the home. Yeah no child left behind. No child left behind can love rachel house rachel house binger friends and lovers all. Yeah absolutely what. I love about this film. And you know i kind of mentioned as honorary fame and now judge rabbit episode where we went Rage winking each other in that episode. I talked about an honorary theme of taika is displaying. The emotional weight without taking you all the way there and i think that's quite true to you. Know they allude to You know adult men taking advantage of younger children. And we hear that with i think name was an mba You know with ricky's friends and then there's a very cute very cute. I guess if you wanna call it slapstick that's probably the closest you would get in this film off. The three hunters shadow sustain woke. I just like you mentioned on his trillions trying to claim hunt full the will to people as well as pavlova. We try to claim stan wawrinka. He was in australian idol as well. It clem eclipse gifts. It as well as a package. You can do whatever you want. But there's definitely very carefully crafted way. Taika lays out these stories. And i feel like pacing was great in this. And you know we turn our everything about ricky. We just know he's a troubled kid that montage of him Destroying property and tagging and burning things throwing them off bridges. It was very funny but it was funny to me. Because i know many kids or at least when i was a kid. That will like that right yourself included a. I'm jamie foxx law-abiding citizen remember hal..

"I think you would have forfeited your reservation at this fucking boy But we had the first coast of thor ragnarok. The twenty ten boy Very spicy week. Alleata in georgia rabbit and now we're rounding off out-aced stations with hunt full the will to people take out your reusable school. 'cause we will be covering common and recurring themes in titus filmography. But before we get to there. Let's start off with first impressions are taste. This wasn't the first time we've watched hunt full. The will to people. And i guess even just to contextualized reference they station. How did you feel watching it the first time also now. In the block of tycoon taste stations. All men a loved the foster. Watch this movie news allowance. It was a hit of office. Everyone was just talking about it. Our we did finally going to see it. I was not disappointed at all. You know it was fun. It was what we all expect from tied gut. Now you know Especially having watched some of the stuff. I just felt luck. Classic darker and renew oil get and just loved. It loved every bet but then on the second watch going forward wash like three times now. My second watch was a bit different. where other pacing sort of changed. And i didn't realize that in the foster artists for me. It felt like it slowed down a bit. Does the end. Maybe they'll high octane stuff just threw me off because that's not wild staff for the movie interesting which is weird because i it never registed the foster watching it because i remember just feeling like wow. This is fucking amazing. And i think than people passing it off as bloody ozzy. So what do no. He didn't know anything else that new kid it was know. Oh on this ozzy film. Well it's like the pavlova right. 'cause i'm pretty sure. It is originated from new zealand but a lot of historians try to claim it. Yeah i just Felt the pacing. Gotta be we'd does end or is it. Because you felt like you weren't going to get anything more out of it. But i'll take this over Protagonist tenant any day. Many towns better than tenant. It's just a weird. That felt that. Thaad which i like. Yeah some scenes out of definitely away with because it didn't do anything for the movie in my opinion just felt like it was prolonging the movie interesting. Because it's not even that long really. It's no which is weird friends and lovers familiar without podcasts. During our christmas episode is where we in a numerical sense distill how we feel about what we've covered for the out of ten And it'll be interesting to see what you write huntsville. The will to people because rewatch ability is very important to you. It isn't me like i could watch something. Never watch it again and it could be ten so i guess will say how it feels for you because it's like if you would never watched hustle the world of people again. You would have had higher regard for what i'm hearing anyway for. Sure we know. Rewatch ability is one of my bedrock foundation..

"Except that by wonder why after you know millions of years of evolution the they seem to be so important no one doesn't there's no one that doesn't dream we do every night and also isn't that isn't there a certain degree of why is why. Okay right this is why. I think it might be pseudoscience in nonsense and and whatever evidence has made me think. There's a reason to. Because i remember when i was i was doing chemistry. And we were told the when he was trying to work out the structure of benzene how to dream of a snake bite in. it's own tile. He woke up and said it's a ring. Right now i can. I can both accept the it might be giving you cryptic clues because the a lot of things happen you brian the a subconscious. You know i could also accept the s. That's nonsense might. It's a coincidence. He knew the answer. He went asleep with the answer. And then i. I almost want to know i saw. I want to know the magic and the science. And i want them to be this. I wanted to be the same thing. Do you know what i mean. Well most dreams are like a bad television show that just got greenland. Two hundred fifty thousand years ago and no one has figured out how to get it off the air. There's they're not producing insights into science. Right it's just right. It's just noise. But i think what one thing you'd dreams reveal about. Our minds is that it's possible for us to be pushed into new circumstances. You know suddenly you go to bed having every right to expect to stay in your bed and the next thing you experience is something quite different and you're not even remotely surprised by the transition of your conscious mind suddenly put in relationship to people who aren't actually there. You know some people might be dead. Some people might be you know famous people. You don't know yeah so You know. I could have had a dream. I was talking to raise before. I met ricky surveys and i wouldn't be surprised at all right unless it's a lucid dream. Which has its own thing getting caught easier now because this obviously could be a dream. This is the it could be. You know i've had. I've had this dream. I've had a dream where. I'm i'm unaware that his dream and i'm talking to dream characters and i'm i'm lecturing them on this very point. You realized this could be a dream right now. Yeah yeah. They're all looking at me idiot. South away the yeah. I often have self awareness and dreams in fact if i have nightmares i now. I've got the point. Where in my dream. I consi- jain jain. Wake me up white me up nine and sometimes i think she said i have said her name and obviously in the dream now. I'm in the nightmare. But i'm in bed and i know jane is trying to wake me our and it takes how long it takes him really probably seems to me like half the night enter like three seconds so with. That's a lucid dream..
