"Broke you fame. Yeah, of course. Our two sensitive. I wasn't ready. I was two sensitive. I wasn't, and I wasn't old enough. Some people are ready. Being a pop star is its own job, and some people are really good at being pop star. Some people have business minded, you know, family and friends around them from the off and they're like right, let's double up on this shit. I didn't. You know what I mean? I'm from a lineage of anarchists and kooks. You know what I'm saying? We didn't have a business acumen. I've stumbled into a world where I've earned enough money to relieve my family, perhaps temporarily of some stresses, but I was too sensitive. I needed to know myself more. And I think people who become famous at a later age, sometimes I like to sometimes they've been through enough by then. Here's an example. I think Ricky Gervais popped off at what 40? Something like that. And people marvel at him taking a piss up. Of course he takes the process out of celebrities. He doesn't care..

"How did you discover the uk version of the office. I was at my friend. Henrietta conrad's house. I was not an agent. I had left being an agent where i had found everything from who wants to be a millionaire to cracker queer as folk and had translated them into america as the packaging agent and i laughed. Backed by barry diller to start my own company called rally and i had just begun reveling in win over to london for a work trip and was staying at my friend. Henrietta conrad's house and we were watching television. And i was literally flipping the channels and i came on to the office. This is episode one or two okay of the uk season one office. Wow and i was watching it. I wondering if it was for comedy or for real than quickly recognized what it was doing single camera no laugh track faux documentary with people who felt real and i kept watching and started laughing. And it's really hard to make me laugh. And i was falling in love with the show in that moment and then i started thinking about it the next day in the morning and i asked henrietta if she knew ricky gervais as and she said no but her friend dan. Mazer did and we organized and had dinner with dan that night. Which are twenty four hours after you after you see it for the first time on television. You're having dinner with someone who could get you to ricky. Yes and additionally. I also wanted to be with dan. Dan was sasha baron. Cohen's partner allergy was on television. Was allie ardor your then no in the uk okay. But i'm with dan mazer yep. Dan is lovely brilliant in his own. Right and i start peppering questions about the office. And he gives me ricky cell phone number and so the next day. I call ricky around eleven o'clock in the morning and introduce myself on the phone and say i'd love to meet you. Are you in town. He goes actually. Yes me in soho at the starbucks this afternoon and i coordinate a meeting and i spent an hour with ricky talking about the office and very quickly we got along because we both love television and he truly was making me laugh even in those moment right over over the coffee at starbucks and so he clearly had chosen the location of the starbucks because he then says to me oh good news. My agent is right around the corner. Let's go meet with them so it was almost like he met me confirmed. I was okay roy. Conversation was interesting and then we walked over and met with dunkin' as his agent. And then duncan and i began a three month process to secure the rights. And it wasn't until dunkin. Help me unlock it. All that i realized. Both the bbc and ricky controlled the rights. I needed ricky and stephen merchant to actually get it done and agitate to get it done otherwise. It was never going to get done. Got it so you you deal with the bbc. And you deal with ricky steven. You have this partnership in place and where do you go into the united states. I immediately start making phone calls and saying. Are you aware of the show the office. Do you know what it is. Do you think it would interest you. And this is probably now a month after are so run. The show has started to gain buzz. It's aired its cycle in the uk. Its initial six episodes and so it has an awareness. Now it's a thing right not a big thing but to anyone in england it in the television industry. You're aware so. I'm i'm back at the states reaching out to people one of the incredible things about hollywood which was a huge advantage for me to do. Well was that people in hollywood are pretty insular and don't like to travel. They think you need a passport to get from burbank to beverly hills. That is travel and so many people at this time in american television had no clue connection about anything beyond la. Right and only one exac at the time knew what i was talking about was a guy named nick grad. Who worked at fx and he knew what the show was and he loved the show. Kevin riley was running fx. At the time. I'd gone to less mooned us he passed. I went to gail berman. She passed immediately. Didn't get it. Hbo said we'll never do a remake. They clearly have altered that thinking that that time they were like. We won't do a format and showtime wasn't doing shows like this right. I didn't go to abc. 'cause i just knew it wasn't abc. Right and i was starting to tease. Nbc with it and kevin than got named the head of nbc. And i bring it up to him. And i say would you wanna do it here and kevin says absolutely little. Did he know he was actually my only buyer that time. He was the only one right who wanted everyone else. All of television everyone else had passed. Now are you in kevin's like let's do it. Like let's let's make it. You know i'll give you a pilot movement and then kevin's boss though. Who is very involved in his life. Jeff zucker didn't really like it that much because it was his single camera. Nola back injury. I got it like it was a hard pill for them to swallow. I was also like they didn't want the game show back in prime time when i brought millionaire. Everyone thought that was cheesy. Daytime like no no. This will change. Tv know you gotta look at it from how to push the genre and pushed the envelope. So that you can expand versus always play for defense right and i was like this is another level and this is potentially transformative of television and with that can come great great

"Yeah other than that where the analogy goes. What i'm saying is the stock poppies talk of makes your life a bad. I know it's not. It's always like just like it's not. It's it's hungry bad but that's no reason not to try stopping but it but you don't have to hate it and you wouldn't hate it in the same way you'd hate a person and that is the crucial piece for me. A very good point ethically like why like even even if it harmed you this. I don't know if you got to that part in my in my I know you heard some of the audio from from waking up talk about free will but just imagine the two cases one case you're attacked by a bear and let's say you lose a hand to rise you really are you've had a you've had a terrifying encounter with near death but you're saved and the bear gets tranquilized. Say he's put in the zoo right. That's one case the other cases you're you're attacked by an evil person and suffer the same injury right so that yeah and so that then the question is what is your subsequent mental state. The rest of your life there. You could be hating the person and fantasizing over killing that person with your bare hands or hand and but with the bear you might especially if he laughed and he could play upon your hamad emotions so that you would really hate him. You know and want to fantasize. Yeah because we offensive south and morelli we failed whilst roman wrong we impose on another human web The back rather robin. Why if i walk. If i walk into trey us right my nose. I do not hate that trade. You hate yourself. I hate without i try and up to the council but i would want someone to blame. I will start with the blind with the weather. Looted duke didn't tell me to bring. Yeah yeah that's true. That's a very good point. And we con- we. It's hard to give another human who hurts youthful fun. As opposed fun even though not yet in a in a naturalistic framework. Bacon's help as our undoing Marks on how fair but we need to literally as well we if we determinants and honestly that does help me now. A fair amount. Psychologically i mean there. There's so many people out there on on social media in particular who in his where i tend to see it. I don't i don't see it in my life. Who just maliciously attack me and attack people who are associated with me in any way. And it's why am i talking to you. That could look good luck on social media after this amount popular kid now. Anyone has to have like sam. I'm asking engine on using Anything so if you listen yeah. That's a very very good. It's much easier process when you actually recognize that certain people are doing what they do. Because that's what they do. They're like bears. Yeah exactly yeah. And there's lots of other factors on social media getting getting noticed being pob. So when i was just pulled a web heckling that not like that in real life aussie for autographs. Oli's things at all If someone if someone sends an awesome way just before the author what they sit down and look back. I might say twenty nice ones. Why didn't notice them. Think pumped me one up this line in author as well why why would rather wanna be famous for being also the not. Famous walk is the attraction of of being famous sign. I was here kind. Man just used to put their hand on the womb blowed over and i was here and now he's got a hand with that. I think it sums of cash life eternal life. I think that's a very human worry.

Where given a memory task where there's a keyboard like the keyboard on the screen and many numbers and letters suddenly get illuminated. And then you have to recapitulate show the press all the right keys yes chimps are so fast and so much better at it than humans that it really is. It's kind of terrifying. And you seen that.

"The robots are coming for your job of I'll go over and the crowd will go wild like ended up in look at that fat black. He's dying and the robot will go on a competing re ricky in the steam engine but No i think it's true if ultimately that something like that has to be true if intelligence and even comedic intelligence and comedic timing and everything that gets built into that empathy. i learned. I am was still my brian. Yeah if that's just information processing. There's just there's no reason why a human has to be the best at that forever and in fact there's no way one will be if we just keep making progress building intelligent machines so i think that even I totally accept that. I suppose my question is than what comes down to is why in this this illusion of free whale. Is it the same as if it wasn't illusion. What's the difference. That's my question. I tell you accepted it but so we we are what does it. What does it matter that there isn't free. Will i mean the reason why it's important. Is that so much of our psychological suffering personally and so much of our social suffering in terms of what we the the ethical and legal decisions we make. Is this allusion. Yes feeling that you are you and really responsible for you. It's not that it's never useful. I it's useful in certain cases but the fact that we put people in prison for the rest of their lives or give them the death penalty in certain states in my country and feel totally justified in doing it as a matter of punishment not as a matter of social necessity that we have to just keep certain dangerous people off the streets which obviously that's quite different. Yeah it is different. And i say why i'd say i think to an an but to When will so no one should be. Punished is unknown since rather like if the machine breaks the factory you don't go with. He didn't made by down with on you. Get a new one. It's not punishment it's will be going to protect the innocent. I get that and yet definitely something else. That's that's lows The punishment certainly make sense still in many cases but retribution doesn't toward the end of the vengeance part of it doesn't yet morally at once you to swallow this pill of free will being the three Retribution rehabilitation and what's the restitution of others of you bet Ted hundreds on now punishment. They cooled won't be cool too high for a night. No punishment is called picture of atlanta tooth is my it was my professor told me about four years ago i was. I was sold on as he stood undone. Yeah he breaks down why that saw punishment for refuge in doesn't work. We'll be totally agreed with with the death penalty congo. Botkin say we all we know the we know the worries about my point is even if everyone understood. Freeways norwegian Done thin. It should make any difference because we're not saying oh. We came from a background or it was a crime of passion wages. Sign we will robots. Let's do what we like. Which we know is acceptable. That's why i mean that. It doesn't make a difference. All the other caveat would still be nice. You know a a sympathetic judicial system and accurate attaran as opposed to roll utilitarianism older stage. Still be in place but while i can never accept. Is the the people decide if seven is true. No one is responsible for their actions on a societal level barrett. The difference on making once you view people in this vein as akin to malfunctioning robots right so so either people if we built an evil robot it would reliably produce evil nature has built evil robots for us as you know psychopaths and other people who just reliably create a lot of harm for everyone else. The question is how should we feel about that and whether hatred is the right emotional response. Now it's totally natural response. Certainly if you've been victimized by such a person. But i think we should treat it like and the other force. There is no you don't you. You don't go into morality off an angry bad exactly no attack you in the woods might shoot ovarian with bob. He came back. But if a bad is attacking me i don't i don't care about his own problem but he did come from a tough background. He he came from the background of being a bear. Right klay do. And i don't care when it's weather whether should i should. I bad i back out. If i if account out of our stopping is not a moral issue is the fact. That don't deserve to die a bad yet thank you. That's what it comes down. I love i love as i've never about them. Good luck to do what they do. Aside if he's in my palm of our word don't don't care..

"Hey how's it gone. Yeah good The bomb. I was already in. It was too high. A backout but yeah good from judging from twitter bath man more than a shower man i have to either two balls die in the winter or bath. Michelle or two showers in the some. Sometimes they'll do exam bold as something other is from We'll get one week. When i was little hand ball to allow it was a novel might is. That is hard you you you joke but that is yeah deprivation one bath a week. I mean that's that's Seventeenth century stuff. What limbaugh in the winter and a house we had. This is actually true. This sounds like a joke. It sounds like a monkey points but we had ice on the inside of the windows. When i yeah i used to dream up dress and i'd wake up and go fuck Anyway i've been a question another question. Yeah i'm i'm just not in the bath of thinking a lot about the brain arava. My brian has So appoint a long question of thought me any point if i made some so late the brain get. I totally understand evolution by natural selection tonight. Brainer i'm the you know. The brain is just an organ. Mike anything else kind from three billion years from a blow reproductive prompting to this most complex computer is just physical. It's it goes while the laws the contingent chemistry physics. You know energy electricity. Ill that right. Obviously to has the epa phenomenon of consciousness. We fail out. Go south we feel free will even though that's an illusion and in this leads to imagination invention of philosophy on So to question one a chimps going through that do you think that all the rudimentary tools to invent nat god's spiritual ale imagination. A a decent. Brian at the sensitive south and to history with the brains purely physical it can be reproduced in the future with a computer. We have paranoid with computers. But we can compute. Is the the nice nacion. Don't wanna die one murder song shoot. Yes a question is there. There's so many questions contained in it. Here's what's not controversial There many places were one can try to find a foothold or a handhold to debate. Some materialist assumptions. And then try to open the door to something that many people in science and philosophy at the moment would consider a spooky or theological or yeah just unwarranted so the central drift of. Your question is fairly uncontroversial in science which is to say. It's safe to assume that everything we know and notice about the mind from the first person side as a matter of experience. You know what it's like to be us. All of that is a product of what our brains as physical information processing systems are doing right so our brains are essentially computers made of meat. Although they're they're not computers that are all that similar to the computers. We currently call computers. I mean they're different important ways. Many people point out that science has been repeatedly confounded by bad analogies. That will you know we used to make analogies to water pumps and steam engines and now we no longer do that because now we have a much better analogy computer but many people would. We'll be tempted to argue that it's still not a perfect analogy or or not even a good one. But no but it but but the thing is that intelligence is basically the ability to problem solve negotiate the world and obviously those things if they were favored pasta and he has aimed Gets that barrel. It doesn't work or a dead end or whatever. So yeah i get you know it sounds. It sounds worrying. May i come. I came from a science background philosophy. So all the things like determinism materialism all those things such anything that foul a little bit new agey months mumbo jumbo magic i are so rejected up as privy to me in instead of I'm this Hardwired contingent i need proof. I need physical proof and so even consciousness freaks neo because yeah it should it should because really we don't understand it physically yet and there are impressive impediments to doing that. I think the so called hard problem of consciousness is genuinely hard because it's not clear why anything we do as minds all of our behavioral of our mental behavior. Everything including our intelligence needs to be associated with experience. We could build robots and we undoubtedly will build robots eventually that passed the turing tests that are indistinguishable from humans and annan factor only are become distinguishable from humans by their superhuman capacities. They'll they will be as intelligent as we are in every respect they'll be conversant with our emotions and display emotions of their own because we will program that them that way very likely least. Some of them that way and i think is true to say. They're they're already is good. They might even be better at facial. Recognition than humans are now and that will eventually include detecting and responding to our emotions. Let just but so. Much of what makes us effective social beans in a million years of evolution as social primates. And you know three hundred thousand years or so of a finishing school as homo sapiens. Were very good at this. And there's no question we're going to build machines that are better than we are and then then literally everything we do. Cognitively will be like chess where it will be true to say that the best mind at that is now a computer mind not a human one yes. We will never be the best at chess. Yeah and that's going to be true of looking at a person's face and deciding how they feel. Will there be a robot right. This bigger taller stronger than may might have sale of in the dog.

"We shouldn't even need the word Tate. theism people didn't invent ridiculous imagery Imaginary God's rational people wouldn't have to deny them rational people. You wouldn't have tonight if they didn't believe what do you think about that. Joe Why it's funny. Because he he's very good liar because he acts as though if you study science you're automatically going to be an atheist. He knows quite well that if you have a mount rushmore of the greatest scientists from just strictly materialistic materialistic scientific man you can take the scientists that are that are godless atheists just interview them and by the way there's many especially the physicists and cosmologists so forth that heavyweights waist the scientists are typically historically speaking creationist special design people people that recognize. There's a designer but if you would ask the top cosmologists through the centuries centuries last last one hundred years In even you know a lot of the top scientists who the top scientists are most people you got to if you got two faces on. The Mount Rushmore of science is going to be surprised at Newton and it's going to be Albert Einstein. There's a first few names that almost always come up and guess what both of them believe need that it wasn't an accident that the laws of the universe were created by God okay now they had different understandings of God was Sir Isaac Newton claimed to be that got the Bible I Stein Seen be somewhat panatheist although he had denied that in some interviews and so forth but he did believe in a creator. I've got several quotes from each of them. I'm looking he's a couple this Newton's most famous quote of this as far as his belief in God this most beautiful. He says this beautiful system some of the sun planets comets could only proceed from the council and Dominion of an intelligent and powerful being that we'd play some Tuck actually some audio clips minute of Dr Ace. But it's interesting because Isaac Newton wrote all kinds of comedy in the Bible and he was convinced that the Bible had prophecy correct and that God had inspired the Bible. cross differs than mine quite drastically. But he's a strong was a strong believer in and and enthusiasm and the God of the creation had inspired the Bible. And that that guy when you if you just wikipedia his name you know he just doing a scoreless. The second Peter Britannic has a little bit better there. But you'll see that. I mean all of his inventions at all of his breakthroughs. But what's interesting is Einstein. Einstein hated. Now it's another way these guys Li- he hated the idea that he was stated that he he said. I know what I hate. Is that people. Try that other. Atheists would say that he was Nathan Sibling. And I'm not an atheist. And guess what Richard Dawkins didn't even after he said. I hate it when people do that. You know these guys. Guess what. Richard DOC is fear. God He doesn't believe in God so he can do do what he will. It's right well. Einstein was asked. You believe in the God of Spin Spinoza because he came out saying he believed crater he said I can't answer with a simple yes or no a not an atheist. I don't take I can call myself a panatheist. That's that you know. Everything is God. We are all in a position of a little child entering a huge library very filled with books and many different languages mass before Einstein understood the the millions of miles that one that DNA in just one person written code as to what where to look like sound like how big small whatever we are is one body you know. He didn't understand that but he says but we're like a little child entered a room with filled with many books in languages languages. The child no someone must have written. Those books seem a child could see that in other words. You uttered Nihil like Ricky Gervais ignoring the obvious evidence speed atheist it does not know how says `I cycles out of say the child dimly suspects. He mysterious mortar in the arrangement of the books. But doesn't know what it is that it seems to me is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God and so he's saying even most of human being has that attitude toward God obviously future vase and as intelligent human beings so we talk about when they talk about science and scientists say they're hoping people are ignorant then have really studied the issue and think that there's no scientists and would be ignorant to the fact that the greatest scientists have lived have said a exists. God is quite obvious. I mean he goes on to say I signed. We see a universe. marvelously arranged Obain certain laws but only dimly understand these laws are limited minds can grasp the mysterious force and and moves that moves the constellations. Now it's interesting because Anthony Flu. He was the most highly regarded. Eighth debater of this last. You know last generation and and he wrote a book has named the book he wrote a book called there is a God and he was for thirty years. He was debating the top debate among the atheist. I mean they wouldn't use Richard Dawkins they would use him. You know. Richard Doctors couldn't even stand in his shadow as a debater. Because he's still philosophically adept. There's a god he says in this book the name of the book. There's a god how the world's most notorious atheist changed his mind and I'm not gonna read the quotes but you have quote after quote after quote in the book talks about what we now know. After fifty years a research and the DNA he says. Now there's no way we can explain this way by chance. There had to be someone who the other has to be a god so this mazing the God of the Bible we didn't need Einstein. We didn't need Newton. We didn't need that. The recantation renouncing of atheism by Antony flew the greatest debater atheism. We see the word of God and we need to just look get his creation. God's Word says in Psalm. Fourteen one the full says his heart there is no God they are corrupt they do abominable deeds. There's no the one who does good so you know basically kind of like what. Jesus said that they hate the light. He's kind of like what Romans says. There's no excuse for them because they want to do their deeds of evil so so you want to say hey. There's no Gaden play pretend us. Just pretend there's no Gaza and get away with evil. In fact Romans one eighteen. Who Twenty four says this? I think this is one of my favorite passages as I'm sure many on the proof the evidence that there's a God says for the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all in godliness and righteous man and who suppress in that great word means to hold down that you're holding out an atheist isn't just casually saying yeah just don't believe in God actually holding down the truth because they don't want to face ace it because with the megaphone hot costly with all the design at order we see that's beyond what any human could even conceive of making all around us. You have to hold that knowledge down suppress the truth in unrighteous in other words. It's not right it's immoral. I nineteen because that which is known about God is evident within them for God made it evident to to them so God has made evidence of himself as a greater with evidence within your vase and other atheist. He's made it known and they're holding it down. I twenty four since syncing gives you the conjunction therefore since the creation of the world is visible attributes. Is He Turtle Power and divine nature have been clearly seen being understood who you what has been made to. They are without excuse. I want to keep their. But I'm not going to because I want to get some of these clips but let's go ahead and play play the first clip because he's been interviewed by Kobe on On his show cobras claim to be a fierce one. WHO believes in God? Although there's a really weak the job of really stand up for the truth maybe he's just trying to be kind to his guest liberal caveat he's very liberal Catholics. And then you kind of wonder if he's really you know. I'm going to judge his motives there but kind of interesting interview and he just kind of let him go on rent but I wanNA play the body of base. The main parts of the interview here and Then let's address his arguments. Because he has a lot of atheistic fans in the audience just you know just lapping it up and clapping like yeah. He's made these great brilliant points. We look at what he says. And you think about these are really really weak points. Let's check it out. I Clip Tony. Hell before about this tweet. But you're going to hell and I. I know that you're an atheist correct okay..

"Dot com slash span once more expressive VPN dot com slash that okay so Ricky Gervais towards all these Hollywood morons don't go out there and much Americans just don't have less education than the average seventh grader just don't do it Michelle Williams proceeds to get up there and do exactly that wearing apparently a drastic she stripped from a traffic cone as well as a garbage bag on her left shoulder now if there's a deeper meanings any of this I just don't know it okay I'm not making fun of the remaining if there is any deeper meaning I just don't know any deeper meaning to it time making fun of the rest okay fine with that provides us at also her hair she don't get in a vat of toxic jet fuel or something yeah that is in platinum blonde is going on right now Michelle Williams dropped out of school at fifteen she was then granted her legal freedom of by her parents that she could work as an under age actress in Hollywood and take on the money so she avoided child labor laws and she left school at fifteen but don't worry she can lecture you America on morality the best part of this particular clip of Michelle Williams is actually not Michelin's because she says this crap in every single awards dinner just at first but she says this crap every single words there the best part is all the cutaways to these rich famous actors is sitting there nodding along job some first of her sentiments the depth of her feelings the depth of her lu Han check because she gets up there and she says that every woman in America requires abortion in order to succeed in life which my legs not to allow for female strength does it if your success in life relies on your ability to kill an unborn child I'm gonna go with you're not as strong as you say you are here's Michele ones doing this in the cutaways are just ridiculous it's like Glenn close sitting there nodding along yes I wouldn't have been able to boil rabbit if if it hadn't been for abortion to get Nicole Kidman there's like a Michelle Pfeiffer cut away but I would never be able to be Catwoman in that awful Batman movie if they did not been for for the ability to get rid of a child I didn't know what did you wanna know wrecking your bases talk about you yeah Michelle Williams literally have less years of education about a hundred literally his job is actually true about Michelle Williams show Williams doing the posturing I try my very best to live a life of my own making and not just a series of events that happened to me but one that I could stand back and look at and recognize my handwriting all over sometimes messy and scrolling sometimes careful and precise but one that I'd carved with my own hands and I wouldn't have been able to do this without employing a woman's right to choose thank god or whom ever you pray to that we live in a country founded on the principle that I am free to live by my faith and you are free to live by yours so women eighteen two hundred and eighteen when it is time to vote please do so in your own self interest building your own self interest not the interest of unborn children I love how she's speaking for a woman now this person was less representative of women and virtually any other woman in the United States with the exception of like Caitlyn Jenner is this person is is going to tell you what women need and all the cutaways to the women looking meaningful Michelle Pfeiffer looking meaningfully at her and Glenn close looking meaningfully at her and look it is this is so irritating it's so irritating and so stupid and so meaningless except that its moral garbage everybody knows that small garbage and just use the euphemism of course I would not have been able to be where I am without the women's right to choose really were you not like birth control pills not available not having sex with people you don't have baby would not available is there something we didn't know about your life I because I'm feeling not I'm feeling your just saying that it's much more convenient for you to be able to kill a baby so you can go acting whatever crap art house movie you feel like doing this year is that sort of of real genius that how they bring to the table that Ricky Gervais ace was criticizing again your years education about a number of the correct in this particular case also making a parent's protects our cat she shows up to be an idiot to Patricia Arquette who's not a sane human being I mean she she steals these glasses from a bond was cross dressing wardrobe and she shows up at the golden globes and lectures everybody about trump because the same people who say that we should not take trump seriously say we should take the trash are cancer is this I take them very seriously we're not gonna look back on this night in the history books we will see a country on the brink of war the United States of America the president tweeting out the threat of fifty two bombs including cultural size young people risking their lives traveling across the world people not knowing of bombs are gonna drop on their kids has and the continent of Australia on fire was that we were here acting in shows on Netflix to stop Australia from having fires we can stop the fires in Australia by holding these meaningless pieces of junk metal and we can talk about it and that makes us hooks and also from the bad man because he's an orange men in orange men badly Gorringe make bad yeah because Iran and so much our cat secretary of defense absolutely celebrity he's so smart so why is Ricky Gervais for president now okay in just a second we're gonna get to a new anti semitic attack over the weekend in New York even though there was a March I was sure that margin for sure and anti semitism in New York in half and I I know I'm

"N. dot com slash span okay so then all these Hollywood idiots get up and proceed to do exactly what Ricky Gervais told them not to do lecture Americans based on their lack of knowledge and this is self assured sense that they are speaking on behalf of most Americans Michelle Williams gets up her hair dyed Marilyn Monroe platinum and wearing apparently a garbage bag on her shoulder I don't know I don't know what that's that maybe that has some meaning if it doesn't and this just a hideous dress in any case Michelle Williams gets up and she starts lecturing the public on abortion okay now what's clear is about this is you just for Ricky Gervais said most of you have less education and going to fun Burke this is literally true of Michelle Williams Michelle Williams dropped out of school at fifteen dropped out of school at fifteen at the behest of our parents and then she declared herself in it she she declared herself free from her parents right she actually filed legal forms that she could be removed from the care of her parents with their permission so she could work as an under age actress and avoid child labor laws I said this is the same left that will declare that it's the right that wants children to work well then cheer people who declare themselves independent at age fifteen but they can go work in Hollywood making whatever she wants they decide makes Michelle Williams gets up this person who again has no relationship with people in in the real world and she explains on behalf of women everywhere the what is deeply necessary is abortion but she would not be where she is at right now without abortion but let me just say this if you're talking about the strength of women and your suggestion is that female strength is so great that you just need to kill a few babies in order to get ahead let me suggest that is not a case for female independence and strength there is Michelle Williams wearing a a dress directly from like the Hari Krishna and the nineteen seventies in a garbage bag on her left shoulder explaining about abortion I've tried my very best to live a life of my own making and not just a series of events that happened to me but one that I could stand back and look at and recognize my handwriting all over sometimes messy and scrolling sometimes careful and precise but one that I'd carved with my own hands and I wouldn't have been able to do this without employing a woman's right to choose thank god or whom ever you pray to that we live in a country founded on the principle that I am free to live by my faith and you are free to live by yours so women eighteen two hundred and eighteen when it is time to vote please do so in your own self interest right on the verge of tears always comfort because and then I love the cutaways to other women looking so so Sirius the cutaways again are the best part of the show Glenn close looking on yes yes without abortion I wouldn't be able to boil rabbit without abortion I would've been on damages and then some young woman I've never seen before and then you get the Kerr ways of all the women looking very serious so is yours and then you've got the cut away Michelle Pfeiffer just gazing into this because this is so meaningful it's so meaning for Michelle Williams extraordinarily rich and famous and beautiful woman says that she would not be where she is that without having employed the registration means that she had an abortion so now she's making the case that she would not be where she is at namely rich and famous without a dead body along her way that's not a great case for your own independence and moral superiority and if you're thanking god for your abortion your ability to get an abortion let me see just a guy you're talking to right there the name god you're talking about something else it's your own ego your worshipping again Michelle Williams for filling everything the Ricky Gervais said not to do and it wasn't just Michelin's is Bizarro world Patricia Arquette who is eight it was a weird al who showed up wearing a pair of sunglasses apparently purchased at the Disney accessory store and she won four I a show called the acts I guess she won best supporting actress and so she decided she was gonna lecture Americans also view the lecture Americans about from because that's what that's what everybody loves what people love most of all it's going to convince Americans not to look for from what you need is more empty headed idiotic actors and actresses from Hollywood who have no relationship with anyone who lives between Los Angeles and New York wearing sunglasses in the middle of the night on a well lit stage explaining that president trump is a very very bad man who's very bad in origin bad we're not going to look back on this night in the history books we will see a country on the brink of war the United States of America the president tweeting out a thread of fifty two bombs including cultural sites young people risking their lives traveling across the world people not knowing of bombs are gonna drop on their kids has and the continent of Australia on fire what the F. is she talking about and also did you steal those glasses from Bonner's closet and also why is everyone in the audience is serious about this like no one in the audience is rolling their eyes no one all these people I love this all the same people from prison unserious person he's an unserious president very unserious we need a serious man in office you know who should lead the way Patricia our cats that's what we need we need more celebrities more celebrities we're gonna tell us what to do you build this guys Hey you you wanna know how from became president because of you because of you because your worship celebrity you may Barack Obama who's a politician into a celebrity given Netflix deal you turn all of your favorite politicians and celebrities and all of your favorite celebrities and politicians and then you are shocked when Americans respond by letting a celebrity to the presidency who just happens not to agree with you don't give me the we need we need people who are well spoken you're sitting there cheering Patricia Arquette couldn't string a sentence together it was scripted for her she barely can when it is scripted for her you're sitting there cheering Michelle Williams who again dropped out of school at age fifteen to pursue her acting career as some sort of political leader coming up Ricky Jr vase exposes the importance of the culture war.

"All right Ricky Gervais has done five of the openings and he has it's been brutal in all of them this one it was it wasn't like it was personally poisonous but first of all the Felicity Huffman that was funny and nobody that they put the camera cracked a smile I thought was funny it was funny well from the land from the land of humorless golds comes humorless people I guess so or people that dish out all kinds of stuff on Twitter but then can't take it themselves the fascinating part about this and and again you take a look in your right about the layout as money the roast you are up close Hey you're you're not ten twelve feet away from the first table and when he comes out and just has this attitude of like you know what I'm done I'm out I'm out and he he had that kind of add to the first one that he did and the bottom back bottom back brought him back bottom back I given B. C. credit for doing that and it was a hundred percent bring him back again after this because I know because you know what's happening online right now click click click click a we just played it out it click click click click yep blowing up but his comment about you have no you cannot you have no place you have less schooling than that little girl on climate just shut up well what happened later on the show more than half of them did the same thing it's about climate changes about voting trump in all of that and so when they did that it has a little different little different flavor because of all people room they were cheering don't and they still got up I with their arrogance and felt it was not the you know who the dude was Joaquin Phoenix all and it I'm not being mean he is one unique cat he walks not to a different drummer to an entire different orchestra and you can just so you know his personality and how we comport himself is a phenomenal actor credible but they needed a few years ago where you live the role for like a year and went on letterman with the name but the finger tattoos and everything else like that that's when I realized that this is either mental illness are great artists and I don't know where these words a lot on the line yeah I think it's a combination but it was just awesome but you're right it is all over the place it is I mean it was a mill fox I mean everybody at the store can imagine losing to pick next or maybe he'll come back it'll just start off by saying you just can't say no to that big of a check yeah exactly and that is it'll be Oscars rumor is the Oscars are gonna be host list again this year any reference to Ricky Jay's entering a reference to the Kevin Hart thing you know a few tweets from years ago got him bounce from the Oscars are got Kevin her pulse bounce from the Oscars to be specific and you know the Oscars will not have a host which everybody was kind of like all right we'll dig this you know no les monologues that's the one thing with this golden globe thing with Ricky Jr vase you cannot say it was a lame stale overly like sensitive monologue boy that's for sure great yeah but my favorite line I we're talking off the air my favorite line is if it's not a regular stop I love powerline powerline blog run by John hinder acre he's got a writer Scott Johnson who put up he said the the faces of the audience at the golden globes while Ricky Jr races on the faces the audience looked like those in the audience at the beginning of springtime for Hitler in the produce this how appropriate I was about right to gosh it was so and I love that I think that's you the the lore is you have technically one of their own up on the stage shredding all of his own what is he Carilion off he know he's the creator of the office now and the the original the British waters was moved over to America with Steve Carell and and and and and and all the casters insanity John Krasinski whose turn into this incredible action hero in him and everything I mean you can live those office residuals for the rest of his life they're not going anywhere where he's not gonna get associated with the you know certainly the American production of the office because he didn't start it but you know life in two thousand twenty because of the woke scolds on one side and just basically safety consciousness not saying there's anything necessarily wrong with that but human beings crave a little bit of danger we crave a little bit of you know unusual ness and you know daring this and everything else like that in this current climate your face went out there and threw caution to the wind as a George Carlin would have as a in a Richard Pryor would have been in prior generations no pun intended and through it all out there and boy you're seeing everybody you know it's it's two schools kind of a minority going oh my god I can't believe you said that but the vast majority at least online with your left right center going thank god somebody finally said it thank god somebody finally said it and told these people's faces who get their **** kissed all day long that's it and he did yet either I don't remember really what a merger I want to I want to see nineteen seventeen for shore they were talking about that on the back show before we started this morning going back what city you saying it was it's on he he said we used to we thought saving private Ryan was as realistic as you can get he said actually seeing nineteen seventeen and looking back on save a pride right is nothing to do with the technology but the way that you experience both movies now saving private Ryan feels a little less realistic so Sam Mendez as the director he's done some good stuff in the past American beauty and some others by the subject matter of World War one I think is phenomenal then he referenced as grandfather who volunteered when he was seventeen so I I love that type of mix but the TV show I agree with I don't watch that many but succession did very well at it should it's a compelling it's up in Brian **** who one who plays the lead in succession he deserve that this guy is amazing Mazen and this love to see the new names come up in Golden Gloves that's one of the nice things about this award show it's not you get very few they've been around for a long time they made a semi decent movie let's give them the award this year not not with the golden globes you see a lot more a lot different names come up with golden globes well there was a year pia Zadora was giving the best actors all don't start with pia we're gonna have words we're gonna have words saying and her husband Menachem whatever the producer and then it was a blatant pay off went to the press corps members literally bought her the go now that was years and years and years ago I'm not saying that still exist today no we're all above board now naturally stamped out all that corruption oh my gosh what did some of the the church hello you know what you say and then doing the shots of the crowd everyone's just stone faced yes I love it Ricky Jr vase live from Easter Island yeah at the those glass so and that's about all that emerged out of it for me yeah they have floor it was all about him we're already at the nine twenty nine there was a little NFL action yesterday you love this off with two other so we'll get a little bit of that I have other stuff who's gonna see warm wishes he were co okay you know I mean unpredictability like we're talking about need a little danger in your life well stick around listen for.

"To want to start with the golden globe awards last night Ricky Jr vase everybody's talking about him today he is trending on Twitter as he should be he was brilliant last night as you said earlier the the only award show that would ever even consider employing a guy like Ricky Gervais ace as a host is the golden globes economy which would never do what the Emmys the Grammys and all those why is that because they're the foreign press they're not American that's right they knew that subject to all this pressure or at least they don't cave to it and that's why yes it's refreshing that they would hire a guy like that fifth time it'll be as last of course and as the show went on any took more more shots deserve it shot to Larry is shots perfectly done he was up there less and less he did become frustrated he admitted that at one point last night when in fact it was a getting back up on stage but he did his work early and he made sure that you see Tom Hanks face all over the world today that look like all boy like he like I said earlier like he ate some tainted Bubba Gump shrimp yeah that look on his bush hi but he did go out it early and he kind of set the the rules for what it what he thought would be a good a warzone everybody listen will play the folks that didn't but he did set the rules early when he told Hollywood we'll take a listen justice do this if you want what

Ricky Gervais doesn't waste any time offending at Golden Globes

"I last night the Golden Globe Awards Ricky Jr vase hosting let's take a listen to a little bit of what Ricky Jr vase have the sack hello and welcome to the seventy seventh annual golden globe awards I'm with the device thank you and you'll you'll be pleased to know this the lost time I'm hosting these awards so I don't care anymore I'm joking I need to have a date if you do it in a war tonight don't use is a a platform to make a political speech right you were known positions election the public about anything you know nothing about the real world most of you spend less time in school than Greta from bugs so if you come up it's too late in the war thank you I gin when you called I'm not the regular rates pretty funny last night let's get into with Emily Justin's get call Treader over at the federals had been watching all this very closely and only good morning morning then wow this was a breath of fresh air what happened last night yeah it was really great I mean this is definitely recruiter rage stuck so and kind of what his tradition of the call gold is tennis takes no it he spares no body and that's why he's such a fun house the golden globes by that ask them back on again the group because of like the two zero Lisa from Arkansas or shows good fit for them but I thought lessons with little bit different and he actually confronted Hollywood over her one scene in doctrine for being friends with Jeffrey after he can't really just went down the list and he even went on the thing about big tax you know he said that all like to think you're so work so well but look at the company you work for apple and Amazon and Disney and so this is really have a contract in Hollywood Hollywood on some of its biggest blind spots and right to the face of the clock we close it was really really something to watch so is this part of a new trend that we're starting to see we saw Dave Chapelle come out with a very very edgy special for Netflix and got rave reviews from certain factions but not from others but is this what we're going to start to see we're gonna start to see comedians push back against this woke Hollywood that we say oh yeah absolutely I mean is even saris special but came out last year even the shovel who's really best known for having both performance at the White House correspondents dinner a couple years back her new stand up special actually sort of pushes back on some of the the the new rules political correctness and so I think there's a classic comedian and it is a lot of comedians frankly who are so tired of the new rules that their new specials reflect that they're really starting to concentrate on back in their teens so this is something that we're seeing you know become a lot more widespread I think it shows that the momentum has really turned in the battle against political correctness of within the cultural battles and close critical political correctness because comedians you know there's a lot that were hit hardest by some of the stuff I remember Jerry Seinfeld thank you would go to college campus anymore and so they really have been out front fighting this fight and your vases totally been one of the I. with the greatest comedians throughout last night absolutely requested that yeah but then the palace guards closing ranks I you see websites like vox which is a liberal website they came out with an article in advance of Ricky Gervais is hosting last night and and trying to attack Ricky Jr vase for all of his offensive jokes in the past there is clearly a category of liberal writer and thought leader I guess who is very opposed to this type of breaking ranks yeah it's funny I mean he's already gotten some criticism from the last of them like what twelve hours I've seen a lot of entertainment site hosts some sort of like they're criticizing him basically saying tired schtick it's not funny all those jokes are all the same but I don't think that's how a lot of the viewers the host I think there's a reason that he was asked back to the golden globes especially it's just so funny that Hollywood invite him to basically skewer Hollywood's every give his case it's because it's actually really energy unit called about well so those critiques that it's not funny someone I think we're totally flat and I expect that most people were watching last night were very but the people who were watching last night were not the target of the jokes they were the people who were in on the joke switches which is us we've we've been bemoaning the fact that Hollywood isn't funny anymore Saturday Night Live is another one suddenly in the last couple of months or so Saturday's life has become funny because they're starting to to I guess poked a finger at themselves now they're starting to point the finger at themselves now we haven't seen that in a long time from them so what's happening is and if we remember back to literally go Saturday Night Live remember Christmas episode song lists the cast All I Want for Christmas is you to Robert Muller and it was just a moment of their total perfectly calculation of the lack of self reflection how unfunny become and a year later do you really start to see that self awareness that showing up in some of the sketches and I think the trump era has forced Hollywood to confront some of its insularity and you reduce your interesting moment once the orders that you put the idea was that you guys are qualified about politics because that was on the school greens Greta son Burke it and so I think there's been something of the truckers kind of forced them because there's so much talk about all the stuff that's at the front center of the cultural conversation forced them to kind of record with their role with everything now again that doesn't mean that all of them are listening to Trish are cut Michelle well you spoke a very political acceptance speeches right very liberal acceptance because I mean the show Williams who is reportedly pregnant by the way went on tires that it's about portents of abortion it doesn't mean that everybody's listening but I do think you are start starting a few more people

2020 Golden Globes: Winners and Losers

"This is the big picture a conversation show about the seventy seven. Th annual golden in global wards. Amanda here we are once more. We think we know what we're talking about. Enter these things with great confidence even knowing that the Golden Globe boards are famous famously. wonky messy goofy silly stupid and they have shocked us once more. Nineteen eighteen seventeen has won best drama. which I don't think either one of US predicted we in fact you did not pick that I think we thought all four of the other contenders had a good story story? I I do want to say you and I washed together and you. I believe pitched picked joker on our podcast Dixie Irishman. And at one point you shared with me that your wife was going with marriage story and and we watched a two popes commercial and I was like well it could be two popes and you said you. We've now talked about the possibility party of four of the five winners which means it'll probably be nineteen seventeen now. Look you and I are very lucky to have these jobs. We are but I do not claim to know anything like. I'm just going to put this on the table here. I don't I don't know anything. I know people who knows stuff but I don't know anything and this is an example of having any confidence about doing any of this stuff. I thought a lot of Adam. Sandler's character from uncut gems. When that moment happening where I was like this is what must be like to be an awful gambler? I think I went like four for fourteen tonight. Some brutal number. I think you and I are luckily tied at four hundred fourteen. I just WanNa remind you that I very confidently set on the podcast. I I think I got four wrong. That's true and I thought that would have been impressive. It's only get four rowing and four wrong would have been absolutely extraordinary. You would have been going straight to the damn. Am Bank on forum is tough interesting. Telecast tonight I actually thought it was quite a dull show for most of it. There were some head-scratching picks. There were some entertaining speeches. Let's let's we'll get back to nineteen seventeen and all the races. We'll go through race by race but before we do that. Let's just talk. About the telecast itself Ricky Gervais returned earned as the host fifth time he brought a a unique energy the show this year an energy I would describe as fuck all. He really did not seem to care. Think he literally did describe it as that multiple times when he told the audience to go fuck themselves. He was mercilessly bleeped. Throughout out the night He really had the attitude of a person who would be happy to be anywhere else but at this award show I'll be honest. I know it's not cool to set kind kind of enjoyed it you did I. I kind of enjoyed it not because I thought he was funny or useful but just because it was different. I've never really seen that before. There was a train wreck vibe to it you. You kept cackling at like you. Would just he would say something and it would be silent and then and then you would react to the fact that nothing was happening but him just like melting down. I love the idea of people who work at network or a famous person in the audience watching just like quietly recoiling at everything happening onstage on stage. There's something kind of joker ask about that and I I thought your race was kind of like fake provocative. Most of the night and a lot of the jokes. We're kind of like ooh look at me but not actually with anything deep to say about anything which is a lot of his humor in the last five to ten years but he definitely succeeded in bringing just the sheer shear nihilism to the performance. Yeah and I thought that was the one thing that was a mistake. I don't really care about Ricky Gervais xl. I didn't think he was very funny but I wasn't offended ended. My main thought process there is monologue was like oh I really don't like comedy like I don't like the active comedy or anyone who thinks that they're a comedian. It's just like not for me so you know. Yeah that's that's how I spent my time tonight but bio for you by the way comedy. Not For me. It's really not just don't care. I don't think it's funny but I agree that the show is boring and it felt like purposeless a lot of the time and some of that you remarked as we were watching all the commercials for like whatever weird. NBC Plane Show. They were debut and it would say when it was airing on NBC would say like an streaming the next day and there were commercials for Peacock. Doc and Amazon and ethics and all of the platforms and it was just very clear that this is a network. TV like dying right in front of our eyes yes it was a stegosaurus. Soroush slowly falling to its dinosaur needs so hiring someone to stand up on stage and be like this doesn't matter on the one on hand it's true it really doesn't. It's very putting his finger on the truth of the thing but you know they're still trying to get people to watch the show for three hours in order to cover. The advertising is and and to save their network and it I just did. Your Vase just reminded me of like this. Like this is an outdated form like. This actually has no relevance it didn't make me feel feel bad about committing my time to it though for some reason maybe that's just a six drain of my personality. But I I never felt like well I do. Think the show at Townsville purposeless. I didn't think think that his like ruthlessly blase approach to everything. I I just I. I liked it. There was. It was not the same old like back patty glad handing and and also the same Tina fey and amy poehler ask like were above it but will also do the show Biz dance thing you know that. That was raised a characteristic of their three times hosting. I think all of which were pretty fantastic. I I love them as hosts but the tonality of their hosting was always like. Isn't this stupid but also I will perform for it. This was the first time I ever saw anybody in this job. Go like fuck it. I don't care yeah I guess that's interesting as a one one time thing. I don't think you can ever do it again. Right couldn't run it back. Yeah and he swore up and down that he would not be back. I just I understand that reaction. I spent the whole time being like I'm being reminded so many different ways that I have complete control over what I want to watch now and what I content I want to take in and I just. I really really don't need to be listening to ricky surveys right now. which is now because she was defending me or because he was spectacularly unfunny? I was like I don't need this it's a great point I wonder how what what percentage of humans who are watching television. I chose actively to just throw on a streaming service instead of watch this award. Show which is what they would have done. Yeah say fifteen years ago to fascinating thing anything else else to say about your vase. I mean he really just gave his monologue and then came out. And kinda deep side his way through a couple of introductions and that was really the whole show that is true I they will say that the only kind of provocation that I was like I'll give him credit for or the I will remember is every time he would just yell back at the audience. Yes you did it not me. Shades of Amanda hosting play. Yeah it was. It was unusual. I look forward to the future hosts of the Golden Globes. I think we have now served our ricky surveys time. Yes other notable things things from this. TV Show Ellen was was fitted with a with a big old tribute. The Carol Burnett Award which is now an annual award which I guess last year was the first year Carol Burnett won this award and It was interesting I I think on the one hand Ellen. Degeneres is a hugely important figure socially because when she came out that sort of change changed the perception for a lot of people of the gay lifestyle in America and what a celebrity could be in the future. Twenty years of career has been much more about being a extremely extremely rich famous person and posting talk show and I couldn't help but notice an American Express logo in the middle of the montage that to her that did happen and a career highlight montage included her being an American Express commercial. That seemed like Perhaps a subtle metaphor to a lot of the things happening in such an image is to Ellen's career. Yes I agree with that. I will say I thought they keep Mckinnon speech to her was very moving and funny. That was the one time I was like. Oh I do like comedy and and you can see Ellen. Being moved by that. And and that's why she was on the stage. I think I think that's the reason that they can give her the award. Or that's that's the stated reason and then it is also because she's just been on. TV for seven years like printing money for various people. Yeah you the Hollywood. Foreign Press gives out a lot of awards on the night they give out awards to actors and actresses and writers and directors and even composers and Ellen doesn't really do any of those things. She hosts a TV show but there is no best variety show category so she used to be on the Sitcom but that it was a long time ago. Why why was Ellen at the Golden Globes because people who would not otherwise watch the Golden Globes like Ellen and they watch every day on TV and they watched the clips on answering? I gotTa tell you on the instagram explore tab like an interview with someone POPs up. I'll watch that. I'll watch that stuff steph. Every time I wash it into minute increments you know. I also have a lot of thoughts about Ellen's Politics in the last ten years that I'll keep to myself so but but I think did they give her the award because it brings a different audience. Let me ask you this. Where was Dakota Johnson? That's what I want great question that is so good for those of you. Who Don't know there's a legendary moment on the Ellen Show in which she interviewed Dakota Johnson to Johnson Mentioned that she was having a Christmas party. And Ellen said where's my invitation to send it to you. And she said I never got got it. And then they had a bit of a showdown and I think Dakota came out on the other side of that one. The champion is she did because Allen had been invited I believe it to her birthday party. Ellen was out of town and do you know where L.. It was the weekend of Dakota Johnsons Birthday Party. I was she in Amarillo. Texas with George. Yes she was there you go so yeah Ellen was celebrated. That was fine. I tend to enjoy these lifetime. Achievement awards I think one of the sadnesses sadnesses of where the Oscars now is. Because you know no offense but demons like you complain about how long the show is and so we have to lose things. He's like a lifetime. Achievement awards out of the Oscars which gets into the governor's awards which happened months ahead of time. And we don't get to hear about the great works of I don't know Sidney Lumet or Sidney Poitier gay or other great men named Sydney and unfortunately we don't see that at the Oscars we do see it at the Globes and we saw another great tribute to another great great man not named Sydney. This man is named Tom's names. Tom Hanks this was a this was lovely. I was very moved by it. I'm just moving past all the slander. We'll relitigate the Oscars for two and a half hour. Make them you know. Don't link continuous. Shot make a good TV show making good TV. Show that people WANNA watch all the way to save movies. It's the only way to save TV. It's the only way to save like I don't know celebrities and rooms together just make TV. Show anyway. I thought the time hanks was good TV. Because you know who's Great Tom. BUGGING HANGS AMERICA'S SWEETHEART GETS UP. There starts crying two seconds because his family sitting in the wrought Edison because he was on. I think he's a nice person. And he was like someone had fed him Hypno- and he was he was fading out and then he just goes goes into like your uncle who knows a lot about making movies and wants to give you advice mode. It was great told you all about the gate. Yeah the gate cleans. The closing properly is a I also just watching the montage. I just pointed out to me I just really love Tom. Hanks his work and also I was thinking about our podcast and the hall of fame. And I'm really really mad that I caved on. You've got mail. I should have put it in over sleepless in Seattle. I'm just saying that now. I'd like to apologize to the many people who reach out to let me know that they would have supported. Did that decision. I let you guys down. I will say I have not thought about that one. Since can I have thought frequently about how we left Saving Private Ryan off. which was you? It was my fault but I was reminded instantaneously upon that podcast publishing. In fact that podcast went live and I felt like three seconds later. People were like where saving private private Ryan. Even though they had not listened to it we next it saving private Ryan did make an appearance in this montage Tom Hanks's made like thirty bad movies. And it doesn't matter because his good movies are so good in so meaningful to people and his funkier sincere just general good guy nece makes people feel good and he happened to be in a good movie this year which is very helpful. He did not win unfortunately though he was nominated for best supporting actor for Beautiful Day in the neighborhood I thought it was great. I thought you know. That's not really surprising. He he is professionally decent and he seemed like a good person. He was very happy to have his family there. He was very happy to pay a lot of respect to Martin. Scorsese I believe. He gestured towards him three times during his speech which was adorable. You know I just. I wish that there were actually more things like yes. I like to be reminded of the people I like making these movies. That's the whole point of these award. Shows it's not to like breakdown whether nineteen seventeen is going to win at the Oscars like that's rusted. Do the awards shows themselves are to celebrate the great people in the great stuff. I still like that.

"And I'm watching I'm I got in the in their stream. Right. So now, I'm watching the we're watching the the final Steve Carell season two. Wow. And I've actually, you know, the office was my favorite show. But again, I didn't get to this point for some life reason. I'm watching it for the first time, and let me tell you it. I mean at least that season. I don't know if it if it hit a law before it or after he left his little after that, they take some time to find footing. It is had you seen it. I because I will say, yes master. Title writing like the way that these characters that you're attached to the way that they use them in. It just everything about the way they construct episodes to give a growing sense of he's leaving. But also a sense of closure. That's not the finale of the season it happens. Yeah. Kind of in the middle of the season. And then what they did afterward with the people with the people that they bring in the way that they made a transition a thought was as brilliant, as you could you could hope to to me the reason that the office is was so revolutionary so influential for for me, personally, again, it was it was innovative, right? That we take it for granted. But at least it was for me. It was the first thing that popularized this whole breaking the fourth wall as part of the show. Right. And which is a credit? I guess to the Ricky Gervais 's right, and yeah, you've merchant or whatever his name is what I'm saying. But I'm saying when it got to me, it was the American version and it. It was just so like. Ink. It was so specifically funny in like it it was on network. But it wasn't trying to be a show for your parents. It wasn't. It wasn't like we gotta do this. And we gotta take this out. And that's a little too weird. So let's not go there laugh tracks. None of that it yet right again. I one I real half hour that I cared about that as a single camp was a single camp. So it was revolutionary in. Of course, then you got parks and rec which was I didn't make my list because I just feel like it was it was just like the office. I may actually like it more as a show ultimately. But the office was so influential, and it those shows have is the office, especially has had this incredible resurgence like I was looking at like, the Netflix stats, you know, me and the neck let flick stats I'm always in there. I don't even know public. They recently published. What is the most streamed? What is most streamed on a form? I don't remember office may have been number one. I can't remember. But it was very high on the list of just the number of hours of shows that have been streamed in the office parks and recs really high. Because all these are kids are now again, my kids watched the office, and there's all these means relating to the office. And there's a there's this thing that struck me was like everybody is stupid like I'd forgotten. And I felt like I was I didn't have an appetite for the whole sitcom like this suspension of disbelief in order to like, no one ever talks like this. No, one is this extreme there's gotta be something to ground this thing. I there's none of that. And it's, but it's so masterful that you get over it. But I actually thought I actually thought that I couldn't get into the office or the good place or any sitcom network sitcoms anymore. Even the best ones. I think. They're both amongst it. Because I just thought I was more of I don't really watch comedies like I watch like ever since breaking bad. I'm just like into gritty if you're gonna you can have humor in something. But like, I just don't have an appetite for comedy anymore. And I thought I'd lost it, and I've regained it you recall -gratulations, thanks to the office. And by the way, I'm crying it. Especially at this pocket of the season. I'm crying just as much as I'm laughing. It's so they're so good at it. But it's such a is such a suspend your disbelief world, right? I mean, the whole the whole sitcom thing like the way that. Yeah, we're we're gonna get moving fast here..

"Are thinking Amer, Sandra. Oh, the nicest people in showbiz things going to be a snood because you fools are all about to get your style. It is in Spike Lee. Well, I'll tell you the right thing you as a director lifetime banking, wait to see what you do next. Bam. Thanks. Sandra Bradley Cooper hawks. That's Andy Sandberg and Sandra. Oh, a lot of the words being used to describe their monologue glass. Navy safe uncontroversial, very kind Tina, do you think? We want someone to get up and rip celebrities apart. I mean for the Golden Globes. Yes. Just sort of what we want. But again, I also think that maybe, you know, we just didn't know what kind of tone to strike in the aftermath of me too. So I never thought I'd ever say, I miss Ricky Gervais. I missed that sort of attitude. I mean, these people are pompous Hollywood elite millionaires. I mean, we shouldn't wanna be in the room and hobnobbing with them. We should want to see them be made fun of that's the sole pleasure of the Golden Globes. And now it's gone, and you have any Sandberg in off the beginning making a joke something along the lines of. And here's a surprise someone in this audience night will host the Oscars still no idea who's going to end up hosting the Oscars of the show is right around the corner. Maybe Andy Sandberg, maybe central. Oh, maybe that was audition. People might remember that the Kevin Hart the comedian was named as host last month. He resigned after some old tweets turned up leaving the Oscars without a host again. Then on Friday Kevin Hart was interviewed by Ellen Degeneres about the whole thing. So we have a clip of Allen from that conversation reminding you that Kevin Hart was criticized for not apologizing for tweets that were they were offensive. They were homophobic towards the LGBTQ community. Take listen to their interview somebody has to take a stand against the. The quote, unquote trolls, and you can't let them destroy you. And they can't destroy you. Because you have too much talent. No one can do that. And for them to stop you from your dream from what you wanted to do. And what you have a right to do what you shouldn't be doing swear. They haven't found another host. I think it's perfect that all this happened because there has to be a conversation about homophobia, whatever they did in whoever's trying to hurt you it brought up u- reminding people that you're a bigger person than you've already apologized apologizing. So I find this very strange. I'll say that Tina is that there's some kind of hard to say they who are trying to keep Kevin Hart from hosting the Oscars. But what did you think of the? Yeah. I mean trolls who cares about trolls? You know? What are the what are they talking about? I mean. Okay. So the fact that this information, I guess was revealed right after Kevin Hart got you know, it was announced that he got the gig. And I guess that is where the logic is coming from in terms of like, oh, suddenly these tweets have been unearthed after like eleven years, you know, like why? Now that is sort of like the idea of I guess hearts defensiveness about this. And the idea that it was like such a long time ago. The fact that he's apologized multiple times. And I'm sorry. But I don't recall any actual documentation of his apology is you know, he talks about them. He talks about doing all these press tours and apologizing and apologizing, but I don't I no one's been able to actually unearth these. Apologies Instagram, and it was like a sort of non apology where it was like I'm too big for this. I'm grown. I'm gonna dull you can't cut me down defense. This talk about trolls. It's people like, oh, you're so sensitive these days. It's like maybe people were sent like gay people who are offended by this. We're sensitive ten years ago. But didn't couldn't say anything because encouraged to speak up as they are now, and whatever Ellen can do what she wants. And if she wants to support him, but I don't think she represents the LGBTQ plus community in any meaningful way. But that's the implicit thing. Here is that because she is such an important icon in that community. Like one of the biggest celebrities for that community. It sends a very strong message that she invites him on his show on her show. And like does this. What do you make of that? I'm confused. I don't know why. She's suddenly, very buddy, buddy. I don't know why she's not like asking him some harder questions. I don't I I really do think that if he was genuine about. His apology. He would have you would have said that the first time around right in John looked like the Oscars might not just might not have a host this year. I mean, they think they tried that in the late eighties or something like that. Yeah. Maybe like the Tony awards the Grammys and stuff. They don't have hosts I think with the Oscars that might feel weird because it's so centered on celebrity that the idea of having a sort, of course, celebrity and personality to ballast. It seems essential. But you know, I may destroy you're talking about that last night. So, you know, do something fun. Get the Muppets to host it Beavis and Butthead. MTV award. I remember in the nineties if they're available. I think they might be. Rick and Morty, maybe eighteen what do you think? No, no host. It's. Yeah. I agree with John. It's like, it's either all or nothing. It's gotta be like a big celebrity. But there are some up and coming comedians that I think could do a really good job reassure is is a name that's been mentioned on Twitter to enter Twitter's been trying to like crowd source some suggestions. And I figure why not them. I'd rather have that. I'd rather have someone than no one. It'll just be strange otherwise. Guys, always good to be here for having an thank you for watching the Golden Globes. So you don't have to die. I did. I watched it on the on.
