"On a date with a guy and all he ordered was one egg. Which already I've seen all I need to see at that point. We can end the date now. All paid the check. Here's a dollar. He cut around the yolk, and he ate the white part. Then he balanced the yolk on his fork and slid it down his throat. And I said to him word for word, what the hell was that? And he said to me, I have to eat it that way. Otherwise, it's too messy. There's no way that guy rules in bed. Right? There's no way I'm gonna end up going to my Friends and being like, you know who actually rocks in the sack. Is that freak? Who swallowed the egg? Like a snake.

Congratulations, sherri lynch, named one of the most influential women in radio again this year. It's bob and sharing. So I finally got around to over the weekend to watch The Batman. The Batman and I have mixed emotions about it. I'm not a big superhero sort of movie fan. I like the D.C. stuff a little bit better like Batman than I do. Some of the marvel stuff, but this Batman was interesting. I had a little trouble following the storyline. I will say the Robert Pattinson, I think, makes an excellent Batman very moody. I mean, it has had to play that. I don't know why they keep covering when he's Bruce Wayne. I don't know why they keep covering his face with his hair in strands. I thought it was distracting. He looks fantastic in The Batman outfit. One of the biggest, one of the biggest stars in the movie are Batman's feet as he approaches the bad guys and it's very loud and all you see are the boots and it's very intimidating. It's dramatic and it's fantastic. The movie Lamar was saying the movie is dark. I'm not talking about the storyline, which is always dark with Batman. But the actual filming of the movie, I mean, you almost need night up glasses to watch the movie. It is shot in such dark hues. I thought the catwoman character was very good. I thought the penguin was good. Overall, you know, I liked it, but I walked away going. Okay. I don't, I don't know if it's something that's going to stick with me forever. But that's Batman. What? Can I just say for someone who doesn't like superhero movies and has never shown any interest in Batman, that is as good and thorough review as you are capable of round of applause. Thank you. Yeah, I think he's good and they should bring him back, actually. I'm not sure there was ever going to be a Batman or any kind of superhero movie that you would be jumping up and down about. That was actually a 12 pack of icy cold buds coming from you for that movie. Actually, you know what, you know what superhero movie I liked quite a bit was Wonder Woman. I'll be darned. Yeah. Wonder Woman. No, that was a great movie. She's sexy, but that was a pretty good movie. And the storyline was interesting. You could follow the storyline. It's a tough storyline to follow. At least for me because I'm not into the whole D.C. thing. Batman. Yeah, you're not that guy. But that was, did you go alone, by the way? To see that? Yes, I did. Yeah, 'cause I can't even imagine what you'd have had to offer Mary to get her to go to the bathroom. No, there's no way. I didn't even try. That's so much. You are showing so much growth lately. It's like, who is this stranger who demonstrating so much growth? So much awareness. You've given up on the pointless things in life like trying to get married, go to a Batman movie. Yeah. And you're just, you know what, you're growing. I'm so proud. I attribute it to one thing, would you like to know what it is? I definitely, I think we all would. I think it's my realization that when I'm not around Mary, she's okay. And you're okay with her being okay when you're not around. Bob, that's gross. I feel like we should play the Rafi song. I think that I am growing right now because you really are. Once upon a time, you would have gotten very upset at the idea that she was okay with you not being around. She loves when you're there, and she's okay when you're not. And you're good with all of that. Look at you. Look at you. Well, in my defense, when I was thinking of my not being around her, I did want her to hurt. You know? I didn't want it. Exactly. And you understand now that she's not sad at all when you're not around. She's not sad at all. She's perfectly happy. That's exactly. Don't you want, when we love someone, we want their happiness, don't we? Yes, that's right. We do. We want their help. I think you're growing. And max, let me get your take on.

"So just as a wrapping point, is this join, is this a big franchise to you now? Do you think there will be 6 more Robert Pattinson Batman films? I hope so. I will say, I don't know, 6, but at least three, right? Give rob his trilogy, but I think to Chris's point at the very beginning and to your point that you made recently, what's so refreshing about what Warner Brothers is doing right now. And I wouldn't have said this a couple of years ago because Warner Brothers just seemed so lost in their franchise. Is that unshackling of continuity? Is that idea of Robert Pattinson's world doesn't have to connect to these other worlds. And so you can get the gonzo Jason Momoa Aquaman. And it doesn't have to match tonally with what we're doing here. And that's ideal, right? Even for comic book hardcore comic book fans, when you go to the shop, there are different flavors of comics, and that's what we want. And marvel does French vanilla and, you know, I love marvel movies, but they're all in the same, it's all vanilla in some way because they need to be able to blend together eventually. And so I got a lot of exhilaration coming out of this. Thinking about this as a movie that I know you guys are like hardcore cinephiles, so I don't know if this is like beneath you or above you or what, but when I watch a piece of art that I've never seen before, one of the things that I like to do is to go to YouTube and watch really nerdy cinematography breakdowns because there are a lot there's a lot of things that I don't understand that I like to have people who know much more than I do break down. I can't wait to watch the breakdowns that are going to come out of this movie. But the car chase breakdown is going to be awesome. Incredible. And all the illusions that Reeves makes. I definitely think there will be sequels. It's really hard for me to imagine. It also seems like at least for my, you know, casual engagement with the promotional tour of this movie that this isn't one of those superhero movies where all 6 people seem like they can't wait for it to be over. I think that Pattinson Zoë Kravitz and Paul Dano like all seemed like they were like, this was really cool. We got to make a cool Batman movie. Bail was kind of like in the Daniel Craig zone, almost immediately, where he was just like, when can I stop being this guy? Pattinson seems pretty game for it. And we know what? It looks like when Pattinson hates a franchise he's in. The Twilight interview. Straight. Right. Yeah. He can do these movies and then he can do 80 safdie movies after this. He's kind of shown like he does do the one for them one for me thing really well. In a way that is becoming increasingly rare with big stars. I think that's a good place to wrap. We should probably go to my conversation with Matt, but Joanna and mall are going to be going very, very deep, much deeper than we were able to go. This was a puddle depth conversation you guys will be at the bottom of the sea hopefully on the ring reverse on Monday. Is that coming on Monday? That's true on Monday. Ciara is Andy, you gonna see this movie? I assume he will, I just, who can say when, you know, a busy guy, there's a lot of paw patrol to watch. So July 18th or so, you guys will do an episode on the back. Yeah. Okay, that's exciting. I bet he'll see it this weekend. Thanks.

"Now we're going to save the world with our sanctions We're not letting just because the Russians aren't going to get to see The Batman and these couple of other movies that I completely tune that out because it wasn't The Batman that you were talking about So I don't know the other movies that you mentioned But yeah but in this case because The Batman is not going to be seen in Russia that is going to bring world peace You can thank all of us Russia to its knees Is it safe to say bob Is it safe to say it's going to be a dark night in the theaters Really nerd Oh God I don't know why I feel like I'm laughing at us I know I hear like don't you hear a nation But you're a nation of snorting Other nerds listen to the radio All right nerds Everybody's settled Well by the way correction Chris it is not being the reviews are not mixed Actually it's an 86% on Rotten Tomatoes right now for The Batman Take that Take that Chris Not nerd With your with your facts I just read that Robert Pattinson looks bored throughout the whole thing All right listen come on I don't know I haven't seen it yet but it looks great I mean I said to Travis yesterday I'm not a huge fan of the new Batman suit but I'm very nit picky when it comes to that But I just love the idea The specter of a bunch of Russian shoulders like psycho stabbing their own fuel tanks No The Batman No we're done We're saying you can have The Batman I surrender Take me to the movie theater I surrender They're going AWOL for The Batman Now that we're in Ukraine and we can see The Batman here we're going to see The Batman As avenger if you take me to the multiplex I would like you to beat please By the way you also want to get under the family Why doesn't this work If you're a fan of the TikTok now because of tank girl somebody tweeted the future is a very weird place Ukrainians are uploading videos on TikTok about how to drive abandoned or captured Russian military vehicles And you just said I'm not on TikTok I have no plans for it but videos like this might make me change my mind Yeah I did one TikTok That was a kind of gave off Didn't we And if I capture a tank I'll make another one Okay Well that was so great I mean if I wasn't if I wasn't spoken for I'd be calling tank girl Pick me up in your tank In all seriousness that was an amazing little clip Because usually when you abandon your heavy machinery like that you abandon your artillery or whatever you're being overrun by an enemy you spike those things And what that means is you disable them So no one else can use them And whoever was Manning that tank basically said okay I'm gifting this to the Ukrainian people Here have my tanks Because whoever it was they didn't disable it And they should Well I'm glad they didn't I'm not spoken for but it give me a flashback right Chris My long-term X was this is not a joke She was an Israeli tank instructor slash runway model Slash radio sales executives We met her But also a tank instructor Yeah She's tank girl So listen you also somebody tweeted I'm conflicted There's part of me that realizes we need to pay attention to what these nut jobs are doing in other part of me wants to give them no clicks no attention no retweets You keep saying ignoring them will not make them go away Because I know and we take crap whatever we play of Trump sound bite or whatever I try to we try to limit it but you can not ignore what's happening out there that is a threat to our own democracy Can we Yeah Right right Well put it this way This is the question I always ask people because I always get that Maybe once a week I get someone complaining in my mentions on Twitter And why are you paying attention to these people bob Well here's the question if the Republicans decide to stop paying attention to Joe Biden for example would that be good news for Joe Biden or bad news for Joe Biden It would unequivocally be good news for Joe Biden So you reverse it why would we ever want to stop calling out fact checking paying attention to the ridiculousness of these people who are actively tearing down American democracy It's just utter madness Only hurts them Because they're already famous They're already famous Yeah people these moocs Yell at me for like watching chuck Todd or whatever But again you can't just stay in your bubble in terms of what you just want to watch what makes you feel better because you have to understand why Joe Biden's approval ratings or whatever they are right And why they talk It's like an endless circle And then that's all they talk about It's his negative because of all they've talked about him So you have to see how things are being presented to know how we're getting here I mean and you were talking about for instance this trans thing You have to talk about what's happening because Aaron tweeted they've started the process to try to take transgender kids from their parents in Texas They're actually doing it This is unconscionable and you just said this is monstrous Utterly monstrous And so we're banning books in America You know what I mean Don't say gay It's happening in America I mean it's almost it's almost like a backdoor form of ethnic cleansing I mean it's obviously not We're not talking about the ethnicities here but what we're talking about is cleansing the red states of anyone who's not a straight white male basically I mean Texas actively forcing women of reproductive age out of their state By taking away those women's sovereignty over their own body Now what we're doing is we're persecuting trans children by going after their parents with the child protective services as if there's some form of child abuse going on here which is absolutely not happening Obviously none of these Republicans who make these laws have any sense whatsoever What it's like to be a parent of a trans person or to actually be a trans person So they don't have any empathy there So this is just what we're doing is we're clearing out all the undesirables from our land And how is that any different than some of the despotism that we've seen over the course of human civilization It's absolutely one of the most anti democratic things that we have seen in the history of this country What a dark chapter If you don't read history you're doomed to repeat it if you don't learn it And we were talking yesterday about Putin targeting gays It's like the book about World War II Hitler started with gays Mitch McConnell's face last night during the state of the uni how he looks so sad He was thinking about black people voting That's what he looks like All right thank you bob for that I appreciate you I didn't know what was in his Thought Bubble Love you bob says the bob says can you tell us essential listen for the nerd booking I'll listen to this afternoon When you talk about me and then I tune out on all the nerves that's what whatever Just give me nothing for you here stuff All right Love you bye All right bye bye All right 51 minutes after the hour This portion of the show brought to you by.

Now it's time for your film section because this is a cultural magazine, a man is planning on missing the birth of his child to see the new Batman film with Robert Pattinson, Tim Stevenson, you have a man. I don't also have a Robert Pattinson yet. So apparently this is a story from IndieWire, a man is not going to be attending the birth of his child to see The Batman, that kind of sounds like you're taking the pierce. I'm going to see The Batman. But this is men doing stupid shit news. It's like our second story of men doing stupid shit. So apparently at first appeared on the am I the asshole thread on Reddit, where a woman came on and said, am I the asshole for thinking that my partner should show up to the birth of our child instead of going to see fat man? He said that he needed to see at the same day because of spoilers. What about the sex of your kid? Isn't that a spoiler alert? It's not a cape crusader, but everyone else is going to know before you. Do you know what else is going to be at least two hours and 44 minutes long and incredibly emotional? The birth of your child and it's obviously too late for this woman to back out of having a kid with this asshole. Like I can't work it out. I don't understand what the logic is. Maybe did his wife had COVID and then he thinks she had sex with a bat? Is this some kind of revenge plot? I don't know what's going on. But I will say this when I was born, I've heard the story from my mom about the trauma of when I was born and apparently my dad turned up after my mom had already had me and was receiving blood transfusions, multiple blood transfusions, and apparently he came in and declared that's a lot of claret..

Push to get the release the web cut of that movie out there. I would love to see that. I want to but by that point. We'd already gotten four spiderman movies. Right fans aren't as furious because they're like well. I got a bunch of other spiderman movies. So you have other others. That was your justice league movie and and people couldn't get past that and i don't blame them i wouldn't either. Yeah it's his. It's get another film of all those characters you know it's not like i said just one character especially where it's like batman or spider man. You're like giving a few years. They'll reboot it. Yeah you know. It's kind of stunning. That there's not a justice league movie on the radar at you. Know at dc. Like how are they not planning on at least another version of the justice league match your bread and butter. That should be your crowning jewel. My head cannon. Because i i like. I have this. I want everything to kind of work and where you know. Fans and people have kind of picked apart. This doesn't work. What i've done in my head cannon k. Role with me here already. So here's how it goes. Ministerial wonder woman. Bbs suicide squad zack. Snyder justice league five crisis. Because i was in the crisis movie or the tv event. It connected then you have now the post crisis dc movies which would be the justice league because one of those wants that to be canon akron birds of prey. Suzanne wonder woman eighty four. Thus suicide squad. That's how my head can. Explains the tonal. Changes story inconsistencies. That don't line up with what was done before like that. That's how i view. Everything is throw crisis in there. That's why wonder woman in eighty four feels like a little bit of a different wonder woman that we've seen in her. First standalone film does yet very post-crisis. So that's how i've made it. So i feel like okay when i watch these movies. I'm like i'm not like why is this different wyoming post-crisis post okay. I like it. That's that's a pretty good broach. I'd just have to make things work because all all you know you end up in those nerd geek conversations of well in this movie. They established this. But in this. Kind of mike yeah. You're right but it can be looked at some post rises. But they want their cake and eat it too. They want to be able to do Walking phoenix joker movie. And not have it. Connect anything they want to be able to do matt reeves and robert pattinson without having to connect anything you know. It's it's hard to do cinematic universe and also do those sort of elle's world projects i mean. I don't need everything the like. Connect where i have to have. Everyone appear in every film but just that idea that the worlds are connected is a nice feeling that we could see the together. We could see these characters You know i'm excited for the batman.

I'm following so that's that's kind of. That's kind of how i liked to view it. I know that there's tons of ways to interpret it. And i can have fun doing it at a bunch of different ways but i like thinking of it as like this guy has is constantly trying to escape his past and then he comes to place and he's almost forced to look into a mirror of lake. Like oh you think that leg your some some killer guy will like fuck you so am i. So who's who's going to be the last one standing so on all that. Would you say that you think this movie is. It's obviously not directly from a perspective of someone because we're not seeing like a pov view or anything but do you think this story is told through the eyes of robert pattinson. I still think so. Yes so basically. We're seeing everything that he thinks he's seeing so even when we see light we'll run out. He destroys the bow and whatnot. That's just what patents thinks is going on because he's losing his fucking mind he's not coming to terms with the fact that he's a dexter esque character right. That's how i'm choosing view it.

There's the fan theory about us. That like he's bald because he has cancer because they never actually explain it and then they're like that's why his parents let them do whatever the fuck you want. Because he has cancer and he's about to die anyway back to the pepe pig thing which i found out was wrong. So this bullshit. That's what made me think of it as complete fucking bullshit So we're just talking for reform on this but i do have a few things in my nose the nominee. Forget if i don't mention them so i want to talk about My far meter. So during the entire movie i wrote down the exact time of every one of willem does farts At a lot less force than i remember it. I thought that was more. There's not a lot. They're just so obvious just so there that it feels like there's a lot of farts. Yeah there isn't okay so the first part was five minutes and fifteen seconds in and we got the second job second part at five minutes twenty eight seconds and then and then and then we move off a little bit. We have a really really deep long long far at fourteen minutes and twenty seconds Is this isn't the farc cow. But we do have a the i jerk off at twenty four forty five Baraka right before that at sixteen. O eight robert pattinson is staring at willem. Dafoe shaking his ass in his little like a one piece. Pajama with the flap down That happened that was really cool. Let's see when was the what was the next fart was the next part It was actually kind of a while to the next part which is weird. I don't think we got the next. Unless i missed one. I don't think we had the next part until an hour. Six minutes and thirteen seconds. That was a turned far though he was laying in one spot and he turned over and then forwarded the up. that was the turn fart I think that's actually in the end of farts which is very odd to me. I thought there was a lot more you know. One of my favorite things is just the fact that i got to hear patents and sages him dude. Actually you know it's really funny. I was actually like. I wanted to say that right now but i had no reason to say it.

Why Michael B. Jordan was chosen as People's Sexiest Man Alive
"Sexiest man alive. Two thousand twenty is another michael jordan and just an objectively correct choice for just off the bat. I have to say listen. I both went through stints where we were bills ascent. I currently am which meant that. We brought his guests in whenever he would have celebrity guests on his podcast. And i cannot remember a male guests that made as much of a flurry among the wringer women. When he came onto the lot as michael be there were people. I won't name names but jordan liggins was sitting outside. She was like casually working outside. One day i was like weird. We're choice people were stationed across the lot to see him when he came in. It was a bath. Y'all i can think of two instances where there's gonna be s podcast guests. I like made the rounds pass. Bills office just right. You know why. Advisory michael jordan was one of them. I actually was surprised. I'm shocked he has not been named as in the past. This suggests easy choice. Like it's easy in the best way like he is people sector the people's sexiest man. I cannot believe this hasn't happened yet. I agree i. This is my. I was surprised about this choice because it was just kind of seemed to obvious where he had he should have won it before. And i kinda thought if he hadn't done it before then like he just wasn't quite what they were looking for which is wrong and also i was like what is he done this year because usually when they pick these things. It's someone who has really been in the news who has had some huge project you know it was the rock. It was blake shelton when he was like the voice. You know it was john legend and it's usually like tied to someone who's just been in the news a ton and had a really big year so when it was michael jordan i was like what was he in this year. However twenty twenty three movies so through all that could be during his done with. Tsa in his profile is he's donated to charities. He has been at home as all the responsible celebrities have been doing and like sitting at home donated the charities and being hot. it's just like peak twenty twenty. So i apologize to michael jordan for thinking that it wouldn't be him because that's all you have to do is twenty twenty and that's great happy for him. Each year grows more and more embarrassing than blake. Shelton was named anyway. Okay so let's go to some of the people we thought we're to be named the sexiest man of twenty twenty. So gotta give a quick shot to our producer. Kinda you can jump in if you'd like but i say who thought it was going to be. Which is dr fauci or shawn. Mendez goes on. I just the spectrum of twenty twenty runs from dr fauci tucson mendez. I really thought. I would something dr fauci as you were. Yeah amanda the moment. He had a bigger year totally. I was thinking. Chris cuomo john king obviously big cnn. Gal i thought it was joey king for a second. I was like joey king. That'd be cool. Little switch up kissing booth three. I don't Also thought. Jason derulo oliver tiktok. I thought chance the rapper. Maybe patrick mahomes the athlete not to flex on my sports knowledge. I'm dan love you. Who was in shits creek. Big actress doctor and a lot of these people were in the issue so we actually had a lot of good guesses in terms of who would be included because like we said they have a lot of little sexy participation trophies to hand out My predictions for the cover. As you know. I'm just to online and sometimes i think that the people who are talked about online are the people that the rest of the world is also obsessed with. What's actually michael jordan's a peak internet boyfriend. So actually i do. I think i was on the right track. I thought it would be a chris evans and pine both had a shot. Because they obviously chris evans very politically active This year and then chris pine has wonder woman coming out and christmas. So i thought maybe he had a shot. Kiat was a long shot just because he would never agree to this. I don't think i think he's overdue. He won a long long time ago. Let's bring back. He was also included in the sexiest happily settled guy which was category so he did get a he got he got something in there and then i said robert pattinson who i don't know if you would be into this like seeing repents and twenty twenty people shoot just seems like a weird fit but maybe next year when he's batman. I thought i was like you know. Let's just give it to brad pitt. Again twenty twenty. It's kind of a throwaway year or so like just give it to him again. like church. sure he hasn't had it in like what. Ten years repeats list over time over the decades. Sure exactly. he's still
Seattle movie theaters set to open Friday - as a test run
"Tomorrow. You might actually get to be At the movies. AMC Theaters, plans to reopen 14 locations in Washington state as of tomorrow. That is amazing. Now. Unfortunately for you kiddos out there. I don't think there are any Children's movies out. I think they're all R rated. They're so mad at me all the time. Going to be open tomorrow in elder Would elder with older would have you ever under Washington before that was just quickly looking at the list. Of all the places that are open Elder would. I didn't mean that the first one older would sure it's going to be an elder would keen The Cascadia Mall. Oh, this one. I know Pacific place in Seattle and the Lake Wide mall. You're so cultured. Yeah Job, Jason. I speak words so all their wood can't Cascade Mall, Pacific Place Lakewood are among the places that are supposed to be open. As of tomorrow. This is going to be essentially a test for AMC to see whether or not even if they open, people will in fact, show up. And they say after that test, though, look at the data and if it gives it if it was a good enough Open a good enough launch. They will then open 500 more theaters all across the country. Now I'm looking right now at the AMC Pacific place just to see Which movies are out? None of these are their new wish, I suppose, 10 it is still in theaters that I want to see the broken Hearts Gallery kind of looks all right. The new mutants I heard was the worst movie ever made. I am desperate to go to a movie. But I don't know if I want to go yet because I think a lot of people are desperate to go back to the movies, including people who are probably sick right now and coughing and they're all like, I don't care. I'm a go because why would I be nervous about going? To a movie theater right now. Do you remember my traumatic experience with an illness with the swine flu? I'm certain I got the swine flu from specifically AMC Pacific place in Seattle because after I went to a movie I want to say it was like two days later, I got the swine flu. It's kind of rough to bounce back from right. And so I'm a little bit nervous now. I don't know if the bad luck would follow me if I went to The elder would Cascadia Mul to see a movie? But I'm a little nervous. And would it really be worth it for any of these movies? I mean, you send it If the new Batman was coming out with Robert Pattinson, I would understand. Yeah, sit next to somebody who is tested positive for that. But I have a good news. You're not sitting directly next to people. There are Going to be spaces in between all of the seats with the exception. Of course, If you're going with your own family, then you can sit together. They are going to have limited capacity. They're going to do the cleanings in between each showing. Which I hope is better than the cleanings they normally do between each showing because I don't think I've ever been to a theater in which my shoes didn't stick to the bottom of the floor due to spilled soda. That's on purpose. That's part of the experience that you can't leave that. Yeah, they probably spray it with cola. Right in between showings except Mom thing. That's what base that will kill. The Koven is just a spray bottle of cola Regal ad just said that they're temporarily closing all of their locations in the country. I do, too, you know, mandates in certain states and cities like New York, where you can actually go to the theaters, but also because there's just not a lot of Movies out right now, Like the only new movie from last week was the war with Grandpa.

Like there's none. 2012. 2012 from the movie. It was horrible. 1917 was good over there, You know, One of my favorite two hearts is for two couples. The future unfolds in different decades and different places, but a hidden connection will bring them together. In a way no one could have predicted That title predicted their gods. The title one though that was the synopsis tied up titles to heart, So I thought that was the entire like it was 22 hearts, Colon and then all of that, that you just read. I'd be very impressed that I'm going to see two hearts at the elder would mail Pull up that GPS you're going to need directions to Elder would

He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven. The devil all the time a new movie based on his novel of the same name.

Can Christopher Nolan's 'Tenet' Reopen Theaters?
"I'm talking about tenant. The sci-fi Crime Saga directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Robert Pattinson. That is expected to arrive as of this recording in theaters across the country on July seventeenth or is it ten. It has been touted as the movie that will reopen Hollywood that can salvage what has been tremendously difficult period for theatrical Exhibitors Theater. Workers Actors Filmmakers Craftspeople People Studio Employees Journalists essentially every single person who works in or is connected to the film industry television streaming into perpetuity. But movies still need theaters and so there is an extraordinary burden on. This is one of the signature communal events in American life. Gathering in the dark to be excited terrified thrilled. Everything that Chris owns movies do at their very best and yet Amanda. It seems completely impossible. That movie theaters will open two months from today. I've spoken to people in and around the industry over the past week to get a feel for this moment and everyone seems very confused. How are you feeling about the burden that is placed on tenant right now? I do not think that anyone movie can save the movie industry or that. It is fair to expect anyone movie to save industry or ruin the movie industry or reopen theaters. Or give us all our jobs back or that is put on tenant that said. I definitely don't think it's opening a too I. Just what are we doing? What are we doing? I completely agree. This just seems like one of the most obvious and difficult conversations in this into throughout much of cove nineteen and obviously this is very low on the list of important concerns regarding all the ramifications but for the purposes of this podcast. It's a huge deal because everything has really grind ground to a halt with the exception of trolls world tour and a handful of netflix releases. And Scoop He. The the movie industry is just not moving forward. There's no production happening right now. And with the exception of a handful of drive in movie theaters seem to be doing pretty nice business right now movies are at a standstill and you know. We got a report over the weekend from deadline about the stakes involved here with potentially making at the re entry film and the report stated that Warner Brothers needs eighty percent of the world's theaters to be opening to make tenants successful. I suppose that could also be true for just eighty percent of the theaters in the United States. Open to to make the film successful. This is a film with the two hundred million dollar budget and a lot of expectation even before there was a global pandemic and it certainly just doesn't feel like were close to being able to have experiences like going to movie theaters. I agree with that to me. It feels a little bit like a game of you know. I don't want to say chicken because I do think everybody's taking their responsibilities as seriously as they can. There's obviously like a lot of information that no one has but it really seems like on the one. Hand Warner Brothers is waiting for the local and state and regulations to be like okay. No you're movie. Theaters will not be open. That it won't be possible and I think the movie theaters that those local state regulation bodies etc. Like frankly have better things to do on or not worried about when movie theaters are going to be off and it's not the priority so it does just seem like a game of waiting for someone to blink. Finally because we're getting closer and closer to July seventeenth and it just doesn't seem like this systems are in place for this to be possible especially at the scale. That Warner Brothers has indicated that it needs in order to make ten successful. I thought a really interesting thing in that deadline piece that you mentioned was that it said that eighty percent of cedars need to be open including New York Los Angeles and San Francisco which are three of them major movie markets in the United States and three very large cities that have taken different approaches to how to manage this but are not immediately throwing open the doors to every single business establishment. So just from a practical sense. It seems like we're running out of time. I agree I as residents of California. I think it's safe to say that you know I'm grateful for how the the the leadership and the state has handled the pandemic but also they have been operating with an overwhelming sense of caution in all these issues and that has been met with some frustration by business owners by people who just want to go to the beach. But you know it. We're talking about two months. It's not a long period of time and the cases are still obviously piling up in this country. And so you're right that just from a very practical perspective. It seems unlikely at best that the theaters are going to open. And we'll get into this as we get deeper into. This conversation about the expectations are on this film and the expectations around the industry in general but the domino effect on this is is just extraordinary for what we talk about on this show every week and you and I can probably come up with top ten list until the cows come home and have a lot of fun talking about old movies and I cooked up to more ideas for stuff. I talked about last night and I think that'll be great to do. But the lifeblood of a contemporary film podcast Is Contemporary. Films is new films and the conversation that stokes new films and antennas is one of those movies. That if you if you if you dig this show on dig what we're doing and care about movies the way that we do it is. It is one of the key movies. It's one of the five key movies. It was going to come out this year. It is the kind of movie even though I personally am not always the biggest Christopher Nolan Fan. They're fun to talk about. You know they're they`re. They're really a gift and ten is an original film and it's trying to do something that even the movies that we have to drag with us through every conversation or the star wars movies or animated kids films as far as big tent pole stories. Go this is really the biggest and most unique in its way and so there's really there are no good answers. I mean you mentioned New York Los Angeles and San Francisco through the various reporting. We've seen that. There is there are already some guidelines for what a theater could do to open. Texas several weeks ago had the opportunity to reopen. Its movie theaters in some theaters that open. But that didn't mean that. Any of the notable studios. We're going to release their films into those studios. So that's the first thing the studios have to agree to start putting movies out. We saw last week that the forever purge the fifth purge film from Blunt House was taken from off the date of July tenth and is now indefinitely coming out. And that's just GONNA keep happening. You know the movies that are around attendant are also starting to move or starting to see August films move or starting this even September movies. Move into twenty twenty one and so because of that and because of these these guidelines that we're GonNa talk about. I seems unlikely. But I mean you. You cited some checkered seating here in the way that we would live in a movie theater if this were to happen what what has to happen here for this to work. We don't know what has to happen and this is what's interesting. Is that what? I'm in. A site? Checkered seating is a like a phrase that has come up in a lot of the industry reporting as as the trades are speaking with theater owners and trying to put together a Some guidelines but everyone is still figuring this out. Nothing has been officially announced the general understanding of what checkered seating is. And I'm quoting the Hollywood reporter here. Is that cedars could end up leaving every other row empty as well as keeping empty seats between patriots in alternating rows and and I think there would be a reserve seating element there. There is a reserve seating element to a lot of theaters already but enforcing where people can buy tickets and where people can sit and this seems to kind of be the consensus at this moment. In terms of what checkered seating is then there would be like increased sanitary measures throughout the theaters. Though you know. I think that'll be senior by Cedar Standard as to what they're doing and how they're enforcing it because there aren't a major guidelines coming up from above at this point so that to me is such a big question is like if even if the theaters are allowed to open. This is like an extreme amount of legwork. You know this is just a completely new involved. Expensive system that they have to put into place in order to allow a lot fewer theater people into their theaters and that takes time and resources Before you even get into questions of like quote consumer confidence or other issues. It's the same issue that is facing many restaurants around the country. It's the same issue that's facing. Many stores many businesses in terms of when they open. How will they manage the intake? And how will they manage the personal interaction that is necessary when operating a business? I think there's there's anxiety about running your credit card to recruit a card reader right now and concern about being able to sanitize your hands and wash your hands and Where mask and you know. I think there's also obviously an additional layer of liability concern given that if these movie theaters do open in July tenant does play and people go and there's an awareness of the film if someone if one person walks out of a movie theater and contracts the virus from another person who has gone to a movie theater. What does that mean for the movie theater? What does that mean for the filmmakers? What does that mean for the studio? What what level of responsibility and financial and legal liability to they have. I don't know. This is uncharted territory There is a this is a free country to some extent and given that. I think it's probably arguable about whether or not Businesses should should accept blame and responsibility for someone becoming sick in an environment like
