"Then my one. Aunt's like i don't know what that was. What happened in apple. Is movie buff movie and i miss. I miss the mark on it. And was i just i for some reason i had something else in my mind and i acknowledge i missed the mark on it though because i think i think you're right staying. I was kind of like bored by it to like because not a lot happens for like forty minutes in the beginning of this movie. But now i'm like gimme all the fucking deniro. Pipe you fucking. Ken love him. Just being the smartest guy in the room. And i revisited this like after college when people were like talking about movies. That great car chases i was like. Oh yeah ronin had a cool car chase. I don't remember the movie that much. And i put it back on and i was into it in a completely different way than when i first saw it in the theater i was fully on board and i one of the big scenes that i talked about as soon as i left was deniro using the parking brake. In the chase. Movie fucking rules. Even just his look in the car just was fucking just like i'm going to do it for you. Guys back as far back into his chair as possible with his arms forward like like. Yeah i loved it because he she's doing a cool face in it and he looks like he's really driving like he looks nervous. And it's great it works you know. He's such a good fucking he so minimal and it just makes them great in can watch him do anything. He's just being cool for most of this movie and it and being smarter than everyone around him. And i am i would i would. I wish movie was four hours. The bend the scene for me that turn that i was talking about. After the second time i watched and i was so into it was him Slide in the coffee off get in Fuck in what's his face to snatch skarsgard to snatch and when he's when he's nadu's a quick reflexes. I'm like that is so fuck in hindsight. That's just so fucking cool. It is much stronger than i remembered as a kid that for sure sars guard kinda hadn't fully made a name for himself in this country at two to in my memory and i get wild like my aunt. Didn't get like understand. It thought it was boring or was confused. It's because they don't spoonfeed you a lot of stuff they let you kind of figure it out and then also. The plot is fully secondary. It's not a plot driven movie at all it to the point where it's like. They're having fun with it. It's all just like whatever we ought to get this thing. You're never going to find out what it is. You don't really know who's working for who and there's a little bit of a reveal at the end but otherwise it kind of reminds me those Have you guys ever read the richard stark parker books. I a lot of stuff has been kinda crypt from it. But it's more or less is that did i see Did they make into a movie with state them. Maybe i like movies like payback and stay the a movie with j. Lo called parker in two thousand thirteen. I don't know if i saw it. And i don't know if it's based on these actual books either but i would i would imagine it is. I never saw the hidden stadium. Library of movies look like his. Imdb and he's headlined forty eight movies like what was that wind. Way what. I remember the transporter and i remember like transporter one of the guy ritchie ones. And then like then. It was obscene shy hill in the middle of point blank. The lee marvin movie where it's just a fucking dude. Who wants his money and he can only do this. One fucking thing. He's only like a bad ass dude. Most of that movie most of this movie you think. Oh deniro's just this fucking machine right. He's and even the title. Ronin it all fucking works for me all the weird shit with fuck and michael lonsdale a all four it all his weird forty seven. That's that's day of the jackal guy david. Also so i'm so good. Yeah i'm not a big. I'm not as caught up on fucking bond. But when you i watch jacko based off your recco. Ben and i was so fucking hype to see him in this movie. He's watched the jackal two days before i watched this. It's a good companion piece for the day. The jackal and also. That's what made me go. I love that sonatine. Frankenheimer directed this and it's such a satisfying story. Because here's this guy. He was weird career. He's had he kind of peaked in the sixties and he's got a good work ethic he gets it done. He's from another generation. Where you just a fucking job and you do. That aren't movie buffs to put it. In perspective he directed the original. Manchurian candidate in sixty two. And he's doing this fucking movie in ninety eight just to give you a nice movie. Came out after the reboot of a movie he directed the manchurian candidate reboot was probably like two thousand four something like that. Okay but the. But still i mean it's crazy long career. He probably died. I think he died in the early. Two thousands maybe even right before that came out but the good his. I mean i don't know if you guys have seen the the we've probably talked about it. But the documentary about the making of the island of doctor moreau list. He got thrown on that and everybody hated him. He totally disrespected him so he makes his fucking disaster. He's kind of like a joke but he still got a fucking good movie in them and so he comes out and he does this shit and it fucking.

"I'm gonna be a long one man jeeze along okay. So ronin for me. I saw it and i saw it in high school and i remember being excited to the movie for the movie coming off of heat and kind of this. This deniro heist serious action offering. But i remember being bored by it when i saw it in the theaters and thinking like a lot. It was also the first time. I saw like an audi or thought. An audi was cool. I was like what was true for a lot of the. I think the audi popped in movie what is an and so. I saw that but i remember being disappointed by and then discover later and liking it for obvious reasons but i initial view in kind of a bit of a boar for me. It was one of the first movies where i was like. Oh some people are fucking wrong about shit. 'cause i went with my family. I'd family visiting and they were kind of driving. My brother and i nuts like they kind of stay overstayed their welcome a little bit and they won't leave and we just felt stock with these people in our house and finally we convince everybody to go see a movie to like.

"Happy and not be disappointed with a single entry. And you know we've done close to fifty films at this point. And i think only about fifteen of made it s right. I mean men in black international. Didn't make it on spoiler for that episode. i think everyone knew going into it Hey it was a journey nonetheless but it's okay so question. Time is ronin making the noc list scott your august and you get i vote. Is it making a little note for you. I'm gonna take a very quick diversion to preface. What i'm going to say. Which is. I'm also a big sports fan and i was listening to a podcast recently about the basketball hall of fame and one of the hosts basically making the argument that was becoming too easy. And i and i think i am in the category of halls of fame should be very restrictive. It shouldn't be just hey. This guy was really good for two years. No that's not good enough. And so i have that same feeling about pantheon's of any john laura of any kind of acting of anything it's like. There's you know unthinking in terms of a mount rushmore or something a very limited number rather than so by by those criteria. No i mean. It's a ver i. I enjoyed the experience of Watching it. I think it's really solid but there's a little bit more required for me to put it on that next plateau of the alzheimer's sounds like a pretty fun. No what about you. I was kind of waffling on this one. And that i kind of agree like there are elements of it. That i think are a little shake as we've talked about like the The whole romantic subplot being kind of a driving force for this movie with the deniro and mac own characters. It just doesn't work. But i was also..

"I did the same thing. With william petersen you know scott you talked about to live and die in la earlier. I mean that was another actor. I became obsessed with at a certain point. And i remember going to this movie. So excited for sean bean. Because i loved him as trevelyan in goldeneye and i was disappointed to see him leave early and i think i was thrown by the sheer sweaty panicked performance. He was given but it also robs us of something that i think would be a cliche at this point. Which is the. We've gotta kill sean. Bean early kind of idea. This doesn't give you that. And i love that. I'm trying to think how they would have often at that point. What would be showing beans demise in ronin. I mean his character was so pathetic it would have been a very sad pitiful mercy killing. I think he could have been taken out by this by the sniper by the bridge that would have been the easiest way guy pathetic. Maybe he'd like trips on a rock and then bangs his head and dies from like the blunt force injury on the ground. It's quite boss character. Yeah what about you cam. Did you have any final thoughts on the film The only other thing i noticed was that really jumped out to me. That i enjoyed was deniro's character has a thing about repetition that he does throughout this movie. It's a weird little character work. I don't know if that came from mamat or the original script but just the fact deniro will come up with a line and just keep repeating it. Like when he's wanting sean bean to redraw the the little graphic on the whiteboard and he saying drought again drought again drought again and he keeps doing that and he does that throat. The movie where he'll lock on to some sort of line and then repeated over and over again. I thought it was really effective for that character. And kind of underlines probably an obsessive attention to detail that he would have with his job that that does feel whether it is definitely a mammoth thing. I couldn't say but it sure feels like it. That's that's very characteristic of the kind of thing that he would do in that just to make that evident and and we do see that detail oriented. You'll the questions that he keeps asking but he's not getting the answers to just you know he wants every piece of information he can get and that that's maybe he is a little bit. Ocd yet quite possible. And i think mamat is very good at understanding. The world's he's working in. Whether it's you know house of games or glengarry glen ross it would make sense to me if he is punching up the script and his role was to boosted the niro character that he would wanna bring a bit of authenticity to the idea of a guy who's been in the cia working as a top operative. So i totally buy that now. Actually just can't stop thinking about. Joe montana being the being the salmon wondering what that would have looked like i could a worked could work for sure. I think deniro is the one that gets this movie. green lit and put on many thousands of movie screens. I don't know that. Joe mantegna done that but it would have been very interesting. Indie film with much. Smaller car chases.

"But like this one is working on a tension level and you could see a lesser film having potentially natasha macaroni. Character in the background. Maybe screaming or something. When when she sees the blood at least it doesn't go for that cheap at cheapness. No and i think that this is another example of what we were talking earlier about the relationship. Between between vincent and sam that you know vincent trusts sam after he you know basically risked his life for him and then sam trusted incident because he saved his life by being able to pull it out so i mean i think that that that becomes really important. There's almost an. There's an intimacy to it. That i mean i'm not going to go full like it's sort of a sexual thing but you know there's there's an intimacy to that moment that realizes you're putting yourself entirely in this person's hands and you have to trust that they're going to be able to do what what you need them to do. Yeah i mean. I thought this was probably the showcase seen for in terms of deniro's performance. This is probably the moment that jumped out to me. The most and that. I'm just going to pass out now was great. I mean it's also a moment of vulnerability for deniro because he's a guy who's always playing calm and collected throughout this film. He's always kind of on the ball and it's a moment where he's actually willing to basically go to sleep in front of these guys. He's going to come out and he's not concerned that something bad could happen to them. I i think it shows the comfort level between the characters at this point one percent. I think we spoke about so far is still in skulls. God's character greg stohr. I have never seen him play anything. This slime you devious. I'm pretty much used to seeing him in the thor films so This is this is refreshing to see. He was pretty disturbing in the girl with the dragon tattoo. He was He wasn't bad cuddly in that movie. I'm not sure what was that now. Selling it to me or Nymphomaniac wasn't so lovable. either. I don't know like stellan. Skarsgard seen play weird. But this was maybe my first time running across him in the movies back in the day. I think it probably would have been because i think deep blue sea came the next year but this is a really interesting character. I think touches on an aspect of the movie that is never really It's never really spotlighted. But it's always there under the surface. Which is the morality of these characters. These are all guys who were on a job. They all have shady backstories in one way or the other but it's kind of the levels are willing to go. We have a sequence where he's sitting there aiming a gun at a child on a playground and it's on one hand the movie saying this guy's the worst of the worst like he's clearly the villain as opposed to these other guys who have been in shootouts. They've seen a lot of bystanders. Get shot clearly. This is the worst but it also does underline just kind of the lines. All of these guys have and how they've been corrupted by these Very amoral organizations had been a part of. Yeah i mean and i was. I was already doing enough stuff. That i was familiar with. You know skarsgard from you know breaking the waves and from the from the original pre..

"And we're getting these. You know a lot of character delivered through behavior and little witty asides. I do remember that being conversation even out the time not necessarily even so much with reservoir dogs but with the the mystery briefcase being something. It's like oh they just did that. Because pulp fiction did it. And so you know i do remember that kind of being discussed. On the periphery that it felt like this was something that was you know. Kind of been cribbed from a from a successful fill today that jump out to you scott. I didn't make the connection but the briefcase briefcase the box. I should say something. I did want to speak about because i didn't really feel the tension in trying to obtain it was de niro's end but obviously we never even find out what it contains the mystery i suppose but i would have liked to have known the stakes of obtaining it. I'm not sure i agree. I mean i think you know you've done enough hitchcock shirts no in classical macguffin terms. That's you know what that thing is doesn't matter as much as the fact that it is the single most important thing to everybody involved in this in this movie and so you know it could contain nuclear codes could contain the formula foru- nerve gas. It doesn't matter it just. It's clear that it is important as a weapon of some kind in various international squabbles. And so whether that thing is is going to threaten the entire world. That moment just doesn't to me. It doesn't matter at all. I'm fine with that yelich it didn't faze me either. You know it's along the lines obviously hitchcock clearly. But also you know we're fans of the mission impossible franchise like what is the rabbit's foot in mission impossible three to me the suitcase thing. I think it probably would have cared more about the suitcase. Maybe the first time. I saw the movie but this time it was. It didn't really matter so much as it apparently had a lot of importance and they wanted badly and so it's not like the whole time. They're talking about the what could be in the suitcase. It's more about. How do we deal with this situation. Now that the suitcase mission has fallen apart. And how are we going to reposition our efforts to get it back. That's the sort of thing. I cared more about more about attaining the item than actually what the item was. I think i wrote down to the end. I'm convinced that this has a recipe for soup in it. The irish wanting that superspy candidate this very particular about soups well. It did bring stability back to the region so maybe maybe never comfort food right. Yeah sure in terms of other things the android about film. I would say the car chases. I think we talk about. The call is that. I think this film was designed around having these action sequences. Yeah i mean the car chases in. This film are unbelievable. And it's so interesting to watching the movie now versus back in ninety eight where becky ninety eight. I lived in a world of practical action films. So like the idea of seeing real cars. Doing extraordinary things wasn't unbelievable to see a movie whereas watching it. Now where you know. I've seen many fast and furious movies over the years and the amount of cg going on in these sequences watching this one last night. It just felt like return to great days of analog action where you know john. Frankenheimer was young. He made this movie and a lot of time. People would get excited about the fact that these older directors are doing amazing practical action. You know. Look at george miller with mad max erode but it's like no. It's because they know how to do..

"They said that mamat really only came in boosted deniro's role added a female love interest and rewrote a few scenes from there. So it was kind of on going back and forth. I don't know how contentious it really was. Because ultimately what happened was frankenheimer who had made quotes to the press saying things like the credits should read story by jd. mike the screenplay by david mamat. We didn't shoot a line of zeke's script later frankenheimer backpedalled. I think because things were getting messy and released a letter to variety saying that no it worked out as it should. With the writers guild determining the zych was the primary writer and david bamut took the secondary billing in the writing credits and made a big deal this at the time that he used a pseudonym and that he went to richard weiss but actually he prefers to do this in films where he doesn't have the sole credit this kind of stemmed from wag the dog which come out the same year or just the before actually where there was some issues in terms of credit so that was sort of the story on the behind the scenes. I in terms of the writing. Also notable this movie as we've said car chases where a big part of it over three hundred stunt drivers were involved frankenheimer. Being old school used a lot of the techniques used in the nineteen sixty six film grand prix using heavy storyboarding the old fashioned camera mounts. He had no interest whatsoever. And as i said using. Cg of any type and the actors were enrolled in high performance driving school before production began because they wanted authenticity. And we'll talk about whether they delivered on that front. The only other thing to note really was the film in its original ending feature deirdre waiting outside the cafe where deniro and john renault's character arc and then going back to her car and being thrown into a van violently and you hear the line this is what happens to traitors and test audiences did not like this ending whatsoever and so they basically were told to change it. They came up with an alternate those more of a happy ending where she reunited with deniro and then frankenheimer went with kind of a of the road ending. That didn't fall into either category so that was sort of the behind the scenes as for the production. It was a fifty five million dollar film. Domestically did forty two million international twenty nine for a worldwide total of seventy one million. Which kind of surprised me. Because i remember this movie as being something of a box office hit but i guess it was more of a a break even sort of film. Just curious Scott renshaw did you recall what is being a bigger film than that. You know once you get far enough in the rear view mirror. It's it's hard to remember where some of these things are. You know the breakout hits of any any given year are and you know i. I only remember my own reaction. And the fact that it's it's kind of lingered it never it never has sort of emerged in into a grand scale fan base like a lot of things of this kind of has. It's it's sort of niche audience. But i don't remember that it was disappointed. Disappointing in its in. Its box office performance nor that you know there was any expectations You know sometimes. I go back and try to see what else opened around the same time. I know this was sort of the fall of nineteen ninety eight. So you're always kind of at the victim of whatever else is going on around that time. So i guess i you know at this point not looking back curious to see what it was competing with and what what it might have fallen victim to being you know in the say the same audience that might have siphoned away..
"ronin" Discussed on SpyHards Podcast
"And i remember we all went out and side this kind of late teenage years and I remember we all really enjoyed it. But we're also like well. That was no bond film and that says more about us being teenagers than actually anything to do with the quality of the movie. But i to very much remembered the car chases and for some reason i really really remembered michael lonsdale painting. Samurai action figures of all the things sticking your head. That's a that's an interesting one. I don't know why it's so strange. But that really like even when it popped up last night watching it. I was like i s. I remember all of this. Incredibly will i could just see shutting out into the mall. That's hugo drax. I mean as for me as a seems to happen every week. I had never seen this film. But i always heard ronin being bandied around when people spoke about born or bullets or the french connection just for the driving scenes. Yeah which. I can definitely see the connection now but i had heard of it but had never seen it right key donkey. Let's talk ronin so ronin. Your ally could be your enemy a briefcase with undisclosed contents sought by irish terrorists and the russian mob make its way into a criminals hands. An irish liaison assembles a squad of mercenaries all ronin and gives them the thorny task of recovering the case. Yes that's pretty good now bad not i wanna watch that film as far as these things go. Well okay cam. What's the background on this phone. Okay so this project began life as a script by jd. zych might be back but He was a guy was a state. You read james clavel's show gun as a teenager and fallen in love with it and loved the idea of the ronin which are the masterless samurai and so he kind of had this teenage vision of a spy film. Sort of an espionage film using kind of the ronin concept and zych didn't really go on to do a lot. He worked on the which played tv series for a little bit. He wrote the steven. Seagal film pistol whipped but this script got the attention of john frankenheimer. Who loved what the concept was. He said what drew him in was the professionalism of the characters and just the fact that it was a very story driven film. He really emphasized in the quotes. That i read. It was not a cg picture. Frankenheimer was very old school. And i think. The world of cg blockbusters did not appeal to him in any way shape or form so he mostly used his tv production crew on this film. He'd done a george wallace series more in the prestige. Tv rome than the network tv rome and he brought up a lot of them over to run this production now before they began production as mr renshaw said They brought in david mamat and mamat came in to basically punch-up this film and it kind of led to a bit of a squabble because Jd felt that you know or at least his lawyer felt he deserved the primary credit for this film..

"Know i'm team connery team warranty and craig i just you know. I like the individual movies. Don't like them individually. If you're if you're looking at from that perspective then could you if there was one desert island bond film. Which one would you pick. I think it's probably really watched them. All in sequence most recently about five or six years ago i think at the time it was probably thunderball And i don't know if i watch them again. You know you're always in a different place. Sits it's like the old same river twice thing. You're you're a different person. The the world is different But that just felt like it was sort of. It had found its footing at it. Had it had some of those kind of. I don't wanna say absurdist exactly but when it got bit you know the the bond fill the roger borbon films got crazy with the with the scope and the scale and it hadn't quite gotten there but it had gotten into some of the more kind of outlandish elements that i kind of enjoyed from the more films while still having a little bit more grounding so that's probably the closest again although i i'm never going to have a harsh word to say about moon raker as silly as a lot of that stuff is He's attempting re entry is just never going to be one of my favorite closing lines ever. That's my number one online. I remember hearing that as a kid and it just sticking unfortunately we understood as a kid that just liked it anyway. Apart from bond then. Is there any other film to stick out to you. What's on your shelf. Well because i mean it's it's interesting largely because of the function of my job. You know after. I see a lot of movies a week. So i don't get a chance to re watch a lot I think occasionally. When i'm i'll these zipping by on cable i'll stop with one of the bourne films occasionally You know i. I i think i tend to gravitate gravitate aside from my just sort of nostalgia affection for some of the more outlandish the things that are little more earthbound and i don't i hesitate to use the word gritty. That's so overused. it's so played out But i think. I like the stuff that that feels like. It has real world consequences of so i don't know if that were that puts any specific. Titles but you know that. That's that's something i think. In general that i look for is is something where i feel that. There's it actually could happen. And exists in the world with real with real humans and not as some sort of alternate superhero universe. Right so something. Maybe along the lines even have like a tinker tailor soldier spy. Yeah i mean and you know. I guess there is perhaps the difference between those that you kind of put more an espionage..
ASEAN Leaders Plan Myanmar Visit This Week Amid Divisions
"February's coup d'etat. In myanmar presented a considerable diplomatic headache to the association of southeast asian nations or as the on myanmar is a member of as yan and but as he and maintains a general policy of not getting too involved in the internal affairs of its members. However there are indications as the end does understand that. This is at least kind of the problem this week. As yan secretary-general lim jock of brunei will visit me and ma and indonesia mainly is pushing for as to name a specialist myanmar envoy lon join now by ronan lee an academic and author of myanmar's row hindu genocide identity history and hate speech ronin. Thanks for joining us. First of all do we understand how much the the gionta in myanmar might actually care. What as thinks will the will care to the point that they feel is going to affect them the mesh with as enemies five weeks ago since the joint met at a special meeting with the leaders of as and there was a five point. Saints ham dived at that point. But not one of the points in the five point consensus has been delivered on since that diane even an even the appointment of an envoy has some good at the chances that joint oh will allow a representative representative of as ian to land in myanmar. Well that would depend on the calculation that the joint aches. We choose whether or not the would be any any downside for them. By rejecting the arrival of anez ian rent the military in myanmar is very good at delaying things. They've they've done this repeatedly of a many decades and they do that to take the political sting out of situations and to take the impetus away from people who might be able to force them to change their direction.
"ronin" Discussed on People, Process, Progress
"Sales pitch kind of thing. So what about this ronin. So what about ronan and project managers They go together. yes i think they do. I thought of this comparison. As i thought back on my project manager career and even into major a career somewhat moving from intimate the incident or event to event or project to project pertinent to this one and recently as i look to the future is transitioning off a and look to other projects. That's what we do is project managers right. It's not a bad thing but the thing we need to prepare ourselves for an levered so i'm going share five things that i think can help us as project. Managers prepare cells to move around like the ronin and also some tips on how we can leverage these two. The first one is don't fall in love with your project usually here. This is don't fall in love with your plan or design but you also is a project manager. Can't fall in love with your project you know. In addition to the ronin project management comparison. I thought of this mantra. Sometimes it's pm's we developed strong bonds with our teams in that's awesome and relationships are key. Just as the ronin did with their diner their feudal lords but but then something happens right whether we closed the project with a rasta. Help something else with another program or project needs help something like that. Just like ronin. Something happens they become. They don't have a master whether or on their own or they're told that we as project managers. Sometimes the projects cancelled right. So regardless of the reason the project manager becomes running and begins working new under delegated organization for another program or project or movies and limbaugh for a little bit even. But how can we leverage. Not falling in love with each project will maintain the relationships that you made in that project or program because down the road. You'll find that. These connections can be mutually beneficial. Right let's say you have a new project or program that you're on you need feedback in an area..
The Emergence of Private Cities in Africa
"Come to africa today. I'm excited to come back. Robin williams bothering flex. Trains ronin recently published twenty one trains twenty twenty and one that stood out for me is private cities bronwyn. Thanks for being back. What is a private says. He and how is it. Different than the city's bill houston. Let me talk about private cities. The first thing to notice that as with most trains does have some context in history and we could look back in time to the company towns that quite quite a big deal in the history of america so if you talk about small town life across the american continent which academy as sort of concept was colonized and became the american today. One of those small towns ready set up by companies sufficient based mining companies. Late on it might become big retail city towns and essentially the whole concept of a company. Town is a town that only exists. Because tequila company has decided to put its head coaches. They and what happened with a lot of these company towns to is those companies would have to subsidize the community so in fact they kind of owned so north to get workers to go move to sort of an ounce of the way out in the sticks environment of setup and make a life the company up to provide that a job they might have to provide a communities to attract workers to stay. They wouldn't be able to be self sufficient. Self sustainable business view said for example he drake's or nail salon putnam of people. You want to sit up business. The companies often have to sponsor that that came with a whole lot of pros and cons because the company obviously has been a lot more influence over that community than the culprit. Seca public or private sector should have across the most democratic community. Where that's in town and village whatever. It is such a little bit of context. Not this whole concept of private cities can become a lot more intensive but security in the modern era. The poston does age. We can look rain across the world at once. Going on in china and i'm trying to set up a lot of these massive company cities coal company towns are essentially a company workers live workshop. Learn stay at night without actually believing. The company compound and that comas be seen as slightly darkened shade privacy's it's almost more like endangered labor and in fact across the african continent of these executives that have chinese company towns popping up. They might say work places like maybe even here in south africa you have them to basically work about a working. Saint consider put that in brackets. But that's kind of what happens. The only allowed to leave the company. When you've paid back your date and once again that's also got parallels in history where you can see what happened with colonization. Once again how companies like the dutch east india company for example the british company would subsidize travelling costs so they book passage as always people got to the new colonies in this battle days. Depending on how you want to look at it and those who had been work back passage face. They were essentially sort of assigned to sanitize slave to the company until into lake At cash. not looking ahead. It becomes a lot more exciting. Because you've got eat on must for example talking about his mas cuttings. He wants to put into play where he's offering to exactly that sort of deal where is offering to pay evils passage to mas in exchange. The going to have to work that back and until you've been able to work that back. You are essentially sort of property to the company. You got a date that you have to pay and we start thinking about the company private cities particularly off planet. If you're going to get quite dramatic in the peach mas or even waiting on says starlings of space space up there. You know unlike us a space station but a privately run one. What authority are you going to defer to if you like the way he being treated what. Government has oversight in these new territories. That's exactly what happened. With the frontier company towns with the cynical colonial model of that paying passage paying back endanger lay essentially the company was given the mandate on the european space. When it wasn't a government to actually sit up the rules full that society you referred to your local politician because the politician was part of the company so they are a lot of trademarks of that depending on your political views as to how comfortable you with the slow not on the one hand people saying people would only take that deal with an anonymous go with the duchy senior company if they wanted to know what they're getting into their making a deal. People should be able to do that at the same time. Obviously huge issues of potential abuse. That can come out of this and it basically it is. It is quite a can of worms

It looks like there's some weight behind this stallone could be james gunn suicide squad. We know that james that semester stallone was in guardians of the galaxy volume two. We know that these guys have a working relationship. This make sense
Verizon Wireless CEO on what iPhone 12 getting 5G means for the industry
"With me to help interview Ronin is my colleague you'll have Blumenthal Roger. Ronin thanks for joining US pleasure so You've been working for a while now it's the industry has been working on for a while it's been live for almost two years at this point. But how big of a deal is it that apple is finally getting into the five day game. So Roy, if I may just take people back is you know great debt technologies when they arrive needs to be deployed within an ecosystem and we started like three plus years ago and we have the technology for more. We brought best in class partners together and said, look within this five G. is going to be huge we want to accelerate. The development of the standards, the development of the of the equipment. So we kind of put our money where out was early on, and since then we've been in the vanguard and really the announcements today are a combination of that two to three year cycle where we've worked with chipset manufacturers, we've worked with network equipment vendors and we've worked with all of the premium device manufacturers in the world, and we brought together a very clear understanding the potential of both five G. and particularly five G. A. millimeter waves, and that has resulted in this year long now after the announcements from Apple Twenty five, five G. devices coming to. The US, all of which you're supporting at millimeter wave and really reflecting I believe an accelerated adoption curve that can only get faster. Now that apple in Iowa have joined the party now you spent a year and a half touting the insane speeds that you get with that millimeter way side p speeds but realistically for Law Folks Buying, an iphone twelve of their likely will be accessing the Logan five through the nationwide work announced today. I'm just curious how you are either educating or bracing consumers. On, what could be a disappointing first impression of five G. because it's not quite those millimeter way speeds low band is at this point, you know an incremental upgrade over our faster four g networks. So I'd break it into two parts, the devices that are coming to market today in the recent past from other device manufacturers have chipsets in them, which are optimized to use the existing technologies for Jim Five G. Even better to deliver better experiences better battery life better capabilities on the devices. So there's An proposition for any. Who is considering upgrading? The second thing is in today was a perfect demonstration of it. The pace of software innovation around networks is faster than it's ever been. We announced today that because of the availability of ATC on the down Lincoln to see on the up link with Camera Gatien that we've essentially doubled the spades in millimeter wave, but it's not about speed. Speed in our business is a proxy for capacity and capability, and so think about it is is it that somebody needs four gigs or is it that a thousand people in a stadium or all streaming four? K At exactly the same time? That's the question that you have to answer, and so the opportunity for customers to enjoy both fabulous ultra why bound experiences but also because of our commitment to ultra wideband in those densely populated areas in the high traffic areas, actually the flow to the ultra wideband network is also freeing up the very best of the best in class for Jail T. network we have a now five gene nationwide covering over two hundred million. Of the US population so it is a win win it gets better for everybody. Okay. So talking about that you know win win and getting people onto five G. Phones, that's obviously a big opportunity for getting people to switch and get onto the new networks with your approach with dss, is there an added incentive for you guys to get people to upgrade so that you can restart reallocating spectrum from four G. L. T. to five G. when in fact, it's almost the the country while we're absolutely excited about telling the five story to our customers. The use of DSS means that we don't have to artificially partition between one part of our spectral bands and another to create individual lanes for individual technologies we allow seamless access across the network. Occasioned by the management of that network in a way that says if there's more need for four G. than we have it, if there's more need for five G. Than we have, that's a distinct alternative to somebody saying I have a dedicated line for five G. and if it's empty, it stays there unused. So we it's highly efficient in the way we use it, and therefore we think gives the best experienced about I wasn't willing to compromise my for gop experience of which might customers came for. In in a rush to the experience, what I've committed to is building the best four g LTE network and then on top of the best five G. Nationwide and the new five jailed for wideband. Network and that's part of Verizon's consistent commitment to delivering quality experience choice. That's our value proposition
Rams hold off Giants 17-9; Ramsey, Tate fight after game
"Moments after the Rams hard-fought win over the giants. Physical game, Jalen Ramsey and golden tate. Tate the giants wide receiver Ramsey, the rams, all world quarterback. Healy. Chuckling here engaged in a fight near the fifty yard line this is a very chippy game throughout there is some personal drama, very personal, Ramsey, and tate have a public feud regarding a family situation. Ramsey has two young daughters with Tate's younger sister and even though it got should be right after the game. If you were watching it big midfield scrum according to our Jordan Ronin who covers the giants twenty, four, seven, three, sixty, five, but could have been worse because get this key Ramsey was waiting outside of the giants locker room for Tate to emerge. But round two of this fight gladly was
Transforming Infused Biologics into Injectables
"Rene, thanks for joining us. Thank. You Danny a pleasure to be here. We're GONNA talk about how It's enhanced drug delivery technology and how the company has rebuilt its business strategy around this, let's start with enhanced though what is enhance? That's a great question. Enhance is based on the proprietary enzyme recumbent Human Highly Rana Days Ph twenty. There is a human enzyme on human, highly Rhonda's enzyme and on accommodate version of that. I'd be happy to go into a little bit more about how it works if you'd like. What's the normal function of the enzyme in the body? Okay. So a little bit of biology then. So if you think about the Subcu-, if you think about the skin, there are three layers, the epidermis, the Germans, and then subcutaneous stays. The subcutaneous space is primarily composed. Of fact, some structural components like Alaskan in college, and then a sugar call highly Ronin. Hiring Ronan Forms Gel like substance in the subcutaneous as and this is what's important when it comes to enhance that that GEL like substance creates a resistance to injecting omnium into this up you space the typical volumes you can inject are usually wanted to amounts of subcutaneous. And so. What the enzyme does is it is it breaks down the highly Raanan as as you're jetting drug and the Enzyme Co formulated together. If rates out highly on, she can actually deliver large volumes of injections subcutaneous slow. And that's how drug. Works. So, when we think of That are infused into a patient is volume the issue of why those drugs get infused as opposed to inject it exactly most of the biologics are large lions and they can be sixty, nine, hundred miles. It depends on the concentration if a partner if a company wants to coach with smaller injection buying that could be administered subcutaneous -ly they we co formulated with our enzyme and that formulated product is injected. subcutaneous league are typical products. are in the range of five to twenty EML's. which is allow a lot more than the standard one to two that you can deliver without the enzyme. And what is it actually doing wants it's formulated with a biologic. So, it doesn't do anything to the biologic. But when you inject the CO formulated product into the subcutaneous face, the enzyme breaks down the highly are mentioned that the skin it's a sugar that's naturally in the skin. It breaks it down and opens the state think about like opening the secure space that larger volume have be dispersed, and some of the drug can then be absorbed into the. Circulation. So it facilitates fat sub Q. Injection Large on fluids. What does it take to actually formulate a biologic with enhanced? Does it actually? Does it require doing something to bind it to it or is it just a matter of exciting it into the liquid? It's more than mixing. So typically what we do when we work with a partner on their therapeutic, is we I WANNA, make sure that the enzyme is compatible with their drug at there's no effect of the drug on the vice versa. So we test for compatibility. Then we would test for stability making sure that the two men combine the enzyme on the drug are. Stable a long period of time so that the drug can be manufactured I'm sitting on the shelf for a period of time. One says diamond than simply mixing the two together and the amount of enzyme relative to the amount of drug is extremely small the environment in the order of micrograms of material verses, the drugs which are usually in milligrams. So thousand fold differences.
How do you sell 5G in the middle of a pandemic?
"The last five months, the crow virus has shut down. The economy is kept many of us, stuck at home. Adding the fact that millions of people outta jobs disposable income is what it used to be. Years from Verizon's perspective. How do you sell five G. Environment? This is a technology that spoke promises to give you a high speed connection on the go. All of us aren't on the go anymore Where is the benefit of five g? You know it's it's it's an interesting. Question because you know we'd plan plan planned, and then all of a sudden nobody saw this come in and it's different but so there's some downsides to it but then there's also some upsides to it as well. I we have not seen. The demand for a fixed wireless access product like we are right now and you know we've we've been limited in what we can do from a forty perspective. With respect to fixed wireless access just because Waco talking about before Kinda bandwidth limitations. You know now is we put more band without they report millimeter wave out there that'll open up some some potential for more fixed wireless access tied. Products that we can offer to people you know, and that's GonNa come in Handy for for people you know especially in the covid environment if they're working from home, they can't go to get a good broadband connection. You can use wireless for you know underserved underprivileged folks we can use my fi and people can get on the on on websites or do their schoolwork. So we think there's a good opportunity They are some of the sales folks told me if I if I had blanket coverage millimeter wave everywhere they really be crushing it with fixed pilots access. Fisher be able to get gigabits of service on on a on a laptop wirelessly. Would you typically do at home with a normal Internet connection? So so we see we see opportunity there on the other side of it. You know we've put in some. You know in stadiums, we put some five G. millimeter wave deployments around the country We really showed it off at super bowl the capabilities there. But largely the those stadiums they're empty right now. So but we do believe that the people come back there and we're working. We're still working on the use cases in things that can really augment. People's experiences when they do return to stadiums. while. That's a good point I mean there are you have the pieces in place to make this work when society goes back normal? Problem is we don't really know when that will actually happen. And know curious to see what is what demand looks like right now, four five devices I know the element, some folks WanNA feature proof themselves won't be ready five G. What it's. Broadly available go out again but there's also the other element that folks are watching what they're spending a lot more right now there's a lot of uncertainty out there and so what are you seeing in terms of customer demand? You know I think there's maybe a better question at Ronin are are the CEO who runs our or consumer division can answer. But I I know for sure he's he sees good demand for five G.. Devices. I believe there's a staff that we've. We've sold the the most five G. Devices and I do think it's it's people probably early adopters people want to see the first. The first of its kind and. The promise we have to those folks as we continue to grow the network new capabilities will come on and as they do you'll be you'll start avail yourself of those no Serbs this and we're working closely with the application developer ecosystem so that they're developing things that will be able to leverage the what we call the currencies, really the capabilities if you will of what five G. Networks will bank. So we continue on we don't believe cove this last forever. And you know. But there's also other opportunities that we see that could five G. can help move. For example factories you know if you get more automation factories, you get a good millimeter way five G. system in. That is much more robust than safe current system. You may be able to do things more efficiently in in a factory. So those are those are things will work with customs on right now, that's a good segue because I know five G. isn't just about higher speech your phone, there is a lot more to five G.. I'm curious what you think the applications are five that specifically would help alleviate some of the issues we're having right now other telemedicine whether it's remote worker. What are some of the opportunities I know you talked about home broadband as one option but where some of the other opportunities out there? Yeah. I mean there's some the opportu while it's funny. So we you know we both ever landline network in wireless network and Bailey we're talking about wireless ear but on the landline side net to some extent on the wireless side, we've been monitoring every day I look at how what normal was before our networks are being. Utilized in wear geographically spread and looking at applications and so so what's happening gaming is huge game the growth of gaming like skyrocketed. It's actually come down a little bit because I think people figured out how to work from home. Initially, it was probably a little bit of a honeymoon period therapy were probably play more games we seem to come down, but it's still way high video applications now, everybody. Now, if you go back before pandemic, sure I knew how to use a Webex and maybe one other now I know like five different video things and video is going to be I think very important. In the future of five G. Because you're going to bring in things like Ar Vr. And Computer Vision Technology and you know. L. Type scenario so you can use computer vision to do different things. All of these kind of things require really. Snappy fast interfaces and really low latency. Scenarios all of which what five jails are wide brand band can bring people. Specific example you talked about telehealth I think that's we think there's going to be that's going to grow a lot I think just by virtue of people don't WanNa go to a doctor. people volve figure out ways to do things at home working right now with a firm that is using five G. along with our MAC. That we just announced they ws so they're able to really do edge computing and some. Run machine learning models out at the EDGE TO GET REAL TIME results. An an operating room. So with polyps and stuff, it makes it much easier for for these folks to operate 'cause right now, what they do is they have large server farms running these models in their hospitals that's costly. They break maintaining him as tough. If you could take all of that away, you can run these things in the cloud more effectively. That's good for everybody so good for the patients go to the hospital and. Moves things along. So it's it's really things like that. Like you said, if we just make this a snappier phone, that's that's really not what we're going for. We're going for one or new inputs, interfaces new experiences had you make things more efficient and it goes across the whole board of the economy we feel. So I'm really excited to see how this evolves and what. People will use these currencies, capabilities, new and stuff, and I can't wait to.
Ghost of Tsushima Is Getting Free Multiplayer Content
"Go of. Is getting a CO, op multiplayer mode I expected go suma to get content updates and still got my fingers crossed for a larger expansion or some kind of deal see. But one thing I didn't expect was online co op developer Sucker Punch as far as I know, has never really messed with multi-player I believe sly three honor among thieves had an offline multiplayer mode, but otherwise, they have always been a single player studio. But later, this year ghost of susha will get a free multi-player expansion I was going to summarize the playstation blog detailing the mode, but it's so succinct and explanatory the I'm just GonNa read most of it I hope that's okay the blog post comes from senior game designer Darren bridges who writes legends is an entirely new experience. It's a separate mode that doesn't follow Jin or the companions from his journey, but instead focuses on four warriors who have been built up as legends and stories. Told by the people of Emma Ghost of Sushi single player campaign focuses on an open world and exploring the natural beauty of the island. But legends is haunting and fantastical with locations and enemies inspired by Japanese, folktales and mythology an emphasis on cooperative combat and action. We designed legends to be an exclusively cooperative gameplay experience. You will be able to partner up with friends or via online matchmaking and play legends groups of two to four players. Each player can choose from one of four different. Character classes, the Samurai. Hunter Ronin or assassin. Each class has unique advantages and abilities that will reveal in the future with two players in. Gaza. Susana legends. You'll be able to play a series of CO, op story missions that escalate in difficulty building on the foundation of combat from the single player campaign. But with new magical twists that often require careful synchronization with your partner with four players, you'll be able to take on wave based survival missions, fighting groups of the toughest enemies. SUSHILA has. To offer including new only enemies with supernatural abilities. If you can best the story and survival missions, you may be confident enough to take on the four player raid that will arrive shortly after the launch of of Sushi Legends, sending you and your partners to an entirely new realm to challenge a brutal terrifying enemy. That blog post is linked in the show notes, which also has a trailer for the MoD. The blog concludes again, promising more details on classes and character customization in the future. I, Love Ghost of Sushila. My personal favourite game of the year so far I want more coast Sushila but if I'm being perfectly honest I don't know that this is what I want from that game. That hinges mostly on me personally, just really adoring single player experiences and rarely ever really getting excited about multi-player Games, the mythical setting of the various levels and stuff though. That element looks right. The trailer shows some of those areas and they look really cool.
Canceled Telluride Film Festival announces lineup
"Telluride film festival decided to announce what would have been the slate of films that they were GonNa, show on. September fourth when the festival is supposed to take out, take place before it was cancelled in July, and then we also started to get some news about the New York Film Festival, which will be world premiering a few titles. I. Still don't totally understand how the New, York Film Festival is happening, but let's just talk a little bit about what's going on with film festivals right now. So last year at telluride. They debuted the world premiere of Uncut Gems and Ford versus Ferrari and Judy and first cow, and they had the North American premiere of marriage story. This was a bountiful slate. Lots to see it was a very exciting time. This year, the slate was not a strong. There were some interesting films. There were some very relevant oscar-worthy conversational picks there. I think Francis. Leaves Amanite which many people have been talking about a new movie starring Kate winslet. Insertion Ronin. We're looking for that. How many Oscar nominations to search have at this point twelve fifteen? No. I think it's four, and this will be her fifth, which just seems like I just want to say when we made our really irresponsible Oscar predictions for this year and like having seen nothing I was like I, think Social Ronin will win for this movie that I haven't seen so. At least I think I did I meant to, if I didn't you know please like revised history.

"Ronin thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me on. We're GonNa talk about regulatory compliance, which may be an area that's not well understood a outside of the folks who directly are involved with it. I thought that the work I Cuba is. Interesting because it gets at the way, artificial intelligence and machine learning systems have the potential to transform all aspects of the pharmaceutical industry. We we hear a lot about how data silos impede research, but. I. Don't think people tend to think of this problem as it exists within a company on the regulatory side of the business, how big a problem is the creation of data silos in terms of regulatory compliance? Daniels a great question and it's. The one that we have been wrestling with tens of solutions because it, it is a growing problem I think it has always been an issue at. A healthcare and pharmaceutical companies, but I'm with the huge increase in regulatory requirements, changing regulations additional regulations. It is a growing problem and. In. Most companies have set up systems. Very they're very point solution base. The safety group will have their system regulating teams have. This is have multiple systems whether it's a publishing system. Tracking system. Validation systems can be different, and then the quality systems are also independent. It's an one of them and act. And so that? There's a lot of Ju- -plication interns of cross-referencing. Duplicate entry of data. And it makes it very hard and the administration regulation compliance reporting. A lot of work goes into. Trying to ensure that the data is connected and clean so that the submission timely end of good quality. As you think broadly about the the range of challenges. Companies face with regards to compliance and keeping up with changing regulations and. All of the high volume data they touch. What are some of the other challenges? I think the key one really is around into the evolving regulatory requirements. I mean if you think about Marketing of product in one hundred fifty countries, and each country has a different set of requirements when it comes to frequency and data that they require either on safety real of a product or something as simple as manufacturing chain, sure label change and having to do that across multiple products. That are on the market multiple. Those levels is a huge burden on companies I mean. The larger pharmaceutical companies have teens of over two thousand people looking in this space and a lot of what they do is a. Regular operations is collecting information sifting it from various different sources validating that to make sure that is accurate, and then understanding what the requirements are for the submissions that every country. As I think about the types of data that a regulatory department might touch. I think a lot of unstructured data. Things that don't lend themselves to automation. How labor intensive is this area working? And what's the opportunity to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve efficiencies and reduced time and cost? So. That's a really good question and I think you know one thing that is quite surprising to many people. Is that even in a clinical trial setting nowadays seventy percent of the data? Doesn't come through the traditional case ripple. Scans. It direct lab feeds. It's connected devices increasingly as we started to use them in clinical studies, so there's a huge amount of unstructured data. And, this is where machine learning and. Becomes really important because. Certainly NLP can be used to extract information. From these unstructured data's. Catalog it and then put it in a full that can be used in traditional safety, regulatory systems and I think that is where we see huge benefits from the use of. The more

"Hi and welcome to mentally ause. I'm Evan and NASA's mentally it was corona virus a special episode out the pandemic and how we can look at mental health during it. Dan returned to her own. She's a free diver speaker on a breadth trainer. We're going to be talking about how we could use our time in lockdown to improve our breathing because so many of us have gotten into bad habits myself included especially with our terrible wise heracles. Do while from home and hunching overlap dope or going through some breathing exercises can help with anxiety and stress and struggling to fall asleep in lockdown. So how did you get into some silly? How did you get into breathing? I does sound like Israeli question but it's not really at. I discovered free diving Seven years ago now free diving is breath hold diving and I practice the death depth the depth disciplines which means I loan surface of the ocean. I take one very deep breath. And then we don't have as deep as I can on that one single breasts and I come back up on the same breath And in learning how to free dive your taught better breathing habits and how to use breathing to help relax station because that's incredibly important in free diving and Piqued my interest. And the more I continued with my free diving more interested. I got in how we breathed in how it can help us And that helped me to discover how bad breathing habits can can hinder us. Really Dumb and just Both physically and mentally and Yeah I go go quite interested all of that now. I help people improve their habits if necessary Why do you like free diving because to me? That sounds terrifying horrible. My parents think exactly the same thing I I loved a little bit about my history. Twenty years ago I was suffering from chronic depression and I was actually on the verge of suicide and I was very lucky to be able to find the strength to reach out with the sport of the Jess and family and friends. I turned my life around and I live a life today that I could ever dreamed of twenty years ago and one of the things that struck me so profoundly when I started free diving. Seven years ago was the peace and quiet as soon as I put my head under the water. Always background voices that a Gemini Negative at times And Forever Yapping. Away in the background just suddenly disappeared and they sense of calm and wellbeing being totally present in each and every moment as it happened was a intoxicating and I fell in love with it immediately. Yeah I can definitely see because I think so. Many people talk about What's it called open-air cold water swimming? And how powerful is Philip? Quieting your thoughts yes again. I think that's along the lines of the shock. Therapy of your mind can be wondering here there. And everywhere and suddenly the power. The intensity of the coldness of the water brings you frightened to yourself right in that in that very moment and it's refreshing. It's re- physically and mentally It's a release from the everyday chatter. That's going on in your mind and that's that's very pleasant to experience that so yeah I do think what is it about free diving. Because I think what you're saying about having to hold your breath for that sounds quite like intense life or death. Stop do you find that helpful for your mental health? It's life death if you don't follow some very simple rules and watched like he would never put to learn driver in Formula One car and the Nice basic rule free diving is you do not do a breath hold new water by yourself because if you do that you push too hard. Which isn't actually as difficult as it sounds you blackout and the thing about blacking out is it. Feels like it feels when you fall asleep. You're not aware that you're doing it. So the first and biggest rule of free diving is do not do breath. Hold near water by yourself And if you are doing it make sure you have someone who knows what they're doing looking off to you And from their Ronin The depth that I do and the the length of time. It takes me to do my dive. I've I've graduated to. Those levels vary slowly over very many years with lots and lots of training and. I don't come up from a dive about to sort of on that cusp at all. I'm very safety conscientious diver. I always dive with a safety. Taymor all my buddy who on training with and we look after each other and so while it certainly pushes each people's buttons because they consider it to be an extreme sport and the reason why is because we're denying ourselves one of the ultimate things that we need to live by denying ourselves It's actually an incredibly relaxing Cathartic peaceful sport. That's a wonderful way to face your fears in very calm controlled manner trashy work. Count what you're capable of and where where what you thought might have been assaulted barrier actually can flex a little bit you can achieve more so once you go into that and then you said you kind of Interest in breathing in general and learn more about. How did? Where'd you go to learn more about that? How do you learn more about breathing? The Internet's very very good place to start. But you over just save out the kind of the real stuff from the notes so helpful stuff and you know in the free diving world. There are lots of people who are much more experienced than me you. I've I've listened to learn from and I've looked into The medical side of things a lot. There there's in terms of breath were there is a massive spectrum that ranges from The sort of health side of things through to at this Rebirthing elements you can do this. Yoga prony come exercises that you can do which I actually incorporate some of them Into the stuff that I teach. But an says through to kind of the Cold War to therapies. That people can do as well. We're taking the styles of breathing or involved to help people to build up the sweat the list that she gets on and do it in and step into that ice bath and so it's it's a massive spectrum an I tended to on me have gone more towards the medical side of things whether as says documented reports and studies to show that this debris thing how it can be helpful both physically and mentally to us Because it just it carries more weight for me and I come from a medical family and my father would laugh. May Add to town. If I didn't wasn't able to back things up so yeah it's it's been very useful having that
Sebastian Durrand - Advice for Players to stay fit during the lockdown with world renowned strength and conditioning coach Seb Durrand
"Hello Sebastian. Welcome to the functional tennis podcast. Thank you happy to share Great Avalon and Journeys Tough Times. Where tennis players tennis trainers tennis coaches and a lot of other people are still at home and can't get out and can't train so looking forward to hearing some advice from you so first of all. How are you getting on? What Day is this for you? It's actually the day number and for us fan home and We try we're GONNA talk. I think it'd be layer but we try to manage between the between our work our job and the the kids in the sport of the kids and they're all more of the kids and so it's kind of a different organization in different schedule every day but we always need to find a solution. Find a way to do it. So yeah if a bit of a routine at the moment so the first thing. I wanted to do and you wanted to do with. My wife was assured to create structure and routine because Fischetti for the kids when they don at school begins leave. They can wake up and do the Descru- anytime so we keep on putting the clock for sure. Every morning we wake up and then we all know more like at nine. We started more thirty nine. We stopped homework. You know so we. We keep routines this even. If it's a bit more we are just a little bit more for sure that we put routine every day. The do some some spoilt. We tried to go outside a little bit to move. Yeah we try to really create Routines like this. We share more time with them if if we can for sure but definitively the fact two creeks tributaries There's no rolling become a bit of a mess inside the house. I think it's important especially if if it's one week it's okay like only days or two weeks but for the moment now we are ten day was gonna be full five six weeks so and we don't know so. How many days does it take you to discover you needed to retain yes? She's they want. We said we need to keep the structure that that's growing born on. We not to to strike structure would say but it's not because you are not me new late at the. It's not like when you go to school for sure but still too great routine. It's super important. Yeah for sure. And we take the sun when the sun is out we tried to descend for sure. So yeah it's kind of different kind of ribbon but we still receive tried to put structure every day. That's important yeah. That's really interesting. Only yesterday. They there were a few days behind you a good few days but only yesterday discovered myself that I sort of found my routine. I just I didn't want to write down and say this would have to do. I just have to find it. A bit. Natural. On yesterday was yeah. I stay where I felt a bit more. Okay well like it open to more than I do a bit. A worked and our baby gets up. We all get breakfast together. Then I do some exercise and then do bit more work than we go for. Walks does a bit. It took a few days for me to find a national retain which I think I have. Now which is great but yeah so some people are different crates that you knew straight away. Look we need routine here especially the kids are a bit older full of energy and e and this and and even in the week we tried to keep the we try to keep the weeks as they normally have for example. The weekend we try to get their homework because the weekend they don't work so said we tried even in the week two because if not you don't noise it's Monday or Tuesday or Sunday or your little bit. Less old days are the same so we tried to the same like today's like school We keep on working and then when he's the weekend it's bit more fund. I mean we try to make it a bit more fun. Actually for the moment we had to leave only one weekend. So is this the beginning? But because I think it's important to create the structure to because we really have to think on term process and it's good the first week you know it's nice. We'll do this with that then. Let's see in four five weeks. That's a different storm and I think it's important not to create boring routines. But in the same times to create structure I would say Craig's born really good electing a bit of exercise yourself like some Ronin. How I know it's Day ten. How have you done any exercise? Have you dealt with it? Yeah Yeah I have the chance to have a trainer at home so I can bike. That's good end in the sometimes. We allowed to go outside no more than one hour but I can still go and little bit but my main goal at the moment is not really trying to improve on anything is just to keep heads and keeping shape. I would say but I know I'm not gonNA try to be like overtrained during those moment is. Just keep the shake. That's my it for me. That's nine Mongolia. Yeah I think that's a mango for a lot of people just trying to maintain where they're not to gain weight not to gain like what about. We did have some food tips on functional tennis during the week for me. The tree food tips were worn. Was you're using less energy? So eat less. Make your mail. Smaller have one less mail to was a high junk food. Buy less junk food so just put them in places where you don't normally look on tree was have a could off time at nighttime we stop beating because a lot of people eat junk food late at night on if you say okay after seven thirty. We don't eat so do you have any tips. Who What would be your one main. Eaten tip that you could tell us the ad because I mean I for sure I still Tommy steps. I do a day and the day that I don't do too much around five thousand steps a day and when I do I go to ten twelve thirteen thousand steps which is not a lot more like fifteen to twenty thousand steps. When a big. When I moving my day you know normal day so for sure. Our consumption analogy is is divided nearly by to every day. So it's kind of meeks for me. The nutrition of finding a balance between for sure not gaining weight and nuts. Having the junk food for sure but in a send times. Winnie the human sustained to be strong too so five to go on. Diet for me would be a mistake because we need to have the human system at the top so for sure to keep the freight veges fruits. It's really something important. Keep a little bit the carbs. I mean again. The structuring the Lille having like a breakfast person abby like breakfast lunch snack dinner for sure to make everything a little bit lighter than no more. Bettina sometimes to have like a certain amount of food and energy because we need to knock to store but we need to have the human system important that the bottle I think. The fruits and vegetables are important. Keep the immune system and the three important. Maybe we just need to buy smaller plates. Yeah for sure this this The food is really like nuts because we all need to disclose to all the time so it's really not to have that kind of reflects or go at grab it. Is things things. So that's important just to keep the structure again. That's super important for me to structure structure structure. Okay well enough about Kobe. Nineteen at the moment. Tell me your physical trainer to some great tennis players. Dmitrov worked with other players which I find out about. How did you get into personal training before that? Did you play tennis as a kid? Yeah Oh yeah. I stopped playing tennis in four years old. My parents. I think I felt a little bit like everybody. Mike Burns Blake any similar date and while they were playing a good board. They'll beat on side so they give me one record just this racket here is a woolen. Do whatever you want for one up. And then I found the world and my world became my best friend so I start hitting balls. I was four or five. And then you know after the classics things than you stop laying and in their new up some of the coaches and then after you stop putting some notchers when you're sending eight nine years old and you're into it you love the competition and the Barents Heads to bring you to tournaments to practice. Oh yea definitely. I wanted like all the kid had the teachers. In my bedroom I went to run on Garros and you know I I live in one. That was completely passionate by any wanted to to be pro for sure that this is what he's signing your
20 Minutes With Susan Neal
"So Susan. Welcome to the show. Firstly a big thank-you. It's good to be really great chat. We have today so once again. A massive thank you. I think what I like to start wave is if you could give us a bit of a background to yourself and your experience on the Muslim conversation as we go home okay well Almond Aren. I have an MBA and also a masters in health science. And I am a certified Yoga teacher for over twenty years. I also have written seven healthy. Living Books Two of them on Yoga and four of them basically on how to get off sugar and CARBS and overall improve your health weight and Diet Amazing. Not Something I definitely want to touch them a lot as well as obviously we know that it can be difficult to stick of change on lifestyles for the better of God's nutrition said now be a strong theme proud podcast. And I'm very interested to hear what you had to sail nuts but I think what I I wanted to touch on really is not obviously from your backyard. It's amazing to hear that you use ronin practice really to get yourself back to being fit and healthy when you came to the age of fifty and I think if you could give all audience a of background as that period of your life and what you went through on the procedures you put in place nursing so fight to help and they'll be very interesting. Okay so our at forty five for forty nine years I had great help and then at the age of fifty. I lost my help. I had ten medical diagnoses in two surgeries and it was all from. It stemmed from an abscessed tooth and oh I had Depression Ovarian cysts hole in my retina. Candida infection of my gut vitamin D low. I mean just one thing. After another and my health declined. The doctors you know. Put me on adrenal fatigue. Vitamins Hormone Green this that the other they did the two surgeries and then they were like. Um You know that's all we could do for you so I started looking nurse and start looking at a different alternative methods tried acupuncture massage but the one that was effective was I had a colonic. Irrigation which is like a royal enema because my stools changed after they had put me on antibiotics and steroids. When I had my emergency root ca now and the colonic therapists found that I had a candida infection of my call. One and Candida is a yeast and it grows up normally a pencil in on our body but when you take antibiotics that kills the good guys. You're good gut buddies probiotics and you got in. It allows the bad guys to take over. And some of those bad guys could lead to an auto immune disease it could lead to leaky gut and then for me at led to a candida infection. I went to my internal medicine doctor and he did not know how to treat a candida infection. I had to research on my own to figure it out. You have to Candida loves sugar. Carbs refined carbohydrates and alcoholic beverages at loves the sugar. It takes over your appetite and so you have to. You have to start it and you starve it by going on an anti candied diet. Cutting out all the white sugar white flour white rice even fruits. I had to do that for eight months. Go on a candy to cleanse and then I finally got my house back. It's amazing NASA you. You obviously had versa had led up so you really in the Youtube your health back on track and then obviously you did manage to discover a away technique to to actually nurse yourself to health. Did you struggle? With the first eight months of presumed there was a sort of a transition period. Where you're cutting out all of these processed foods and your body is craving them. Can't SIP is very hard. It took a a lot of self control and and I would take. I'd have one good day and then I'd have three bad days and then I had two good days and I'd had one bad too. You know it was like three baptist. You just don't know if you're ever GONNA get your help back if you're ever going to feel good again so you know my heart was just you know compassionate to others. And that's why I wrote of the book seven steps to get off sugar and carbohydrates because I know how difficult it is to fight those cravings. Yes I think we all really do. They win how a new particularly having to completely strip the mouth yacht. What clicks view. Then that allowed you to go from this Yoyo period of maybe being good for one two days and then having a bad day to actually having sustainable change to your your lifestyle and your attrition in your approach to the foods you intake well you know I did not realize how wonderful it was to be healthy until I lost my house. I lost my health. I was like I'll do anything to get this back in once I gained knowledge and I understood what was taking over my appetite. Then it was like okay. I've got this basically you know this bad back bad yeast and my God. I'M GONNA kill that guy and I'm going to get my life back so you have to figure out the root cause of your problem and then gain knowledge to be able to turn things around and so I created a quiz for people to see if they do have candied infection of their of their guts called Candy Quiz. Dot Com and candy is spelled C. A. N. D. I. Quiz Dot COM view foulland than the record. Obviously it does divert but depending on the person but what's through 'cause you found for the majority of people is it's a lack of knowledge. Is it that? There's on that half that half and not really not one hundred ten percent into it is it because they're not realizing the why of how wiser important to be healthy while you hit it on the nail with the lack of knowledge you know because okay it used to be the low fat diet was the style and now it's the Kito Diet and they're totally opposite in which one is right. Yes so you've got you've got to go to a great resource so I'm an R. N. I have a masters in health and who who looks at the research articles to figure out what is the right way to eat and it's basically back to the garden back to the garden the farm the ranch. You want things to look like they did. When it came out of the garden so number one was lack of knowledge. Number two was like me a Candida and action the third root cause for potential. We not eating appropriately or while is an addiction a sugar addiction. Because sugar and wheat go up to like the brain receptors in our brain. That are the same ones that opiate drugs. Goto so they've done. Mri Imaging and somebody who Um has a food addiction can look at food in those same areas light up in the MRI as they do for a cocaine addict so if you gain knowledge and understand okay. I have food addiction. Then you can say you know what I can use other tactics to release that. Feel good neuro hormone from my brain which is dopamine. I can walk. I can do yoga. I can meditate. I can Hug My kids I can pet my dogs. There's so many ways to get out there and get those endorphins released positively instead of through food definitely thing exercise. You've mentioned on for them. Is it such important one nuts? You really do. Not necessarily you are exercising but the feeling awkward. When you're to release it does really give you a rush a therapeutic feelings. I think that's a you've hit the nail on the head as well. Yes send you see once you gain the knowledge and I have a link in my book where you can go and take tests to see if you do have a food addiction and yet once you understand like I understood that I had to fight the Candida. You get to. The root cause will then. It's not a matter of self control. It's a matter of curing the root cause and when she cured that then you can get your normal appetite pack and happier self control so the the fourth reason was an emotional connection with food in many of us do have an emotional connection with food. And you know we may stuff our emotions with food. stuff our anger or hole in her art. We have unforgiveness resentment or whatever it may be and so. I haven't area my book about cleaning out your emotion

"Actually I am kind of I write poetry Snow Book Secret Notebook or your poet. Yeah that's great but you like to hear what sure sure it doesn't really Ryan though. Okay kind of like him better when they don't me to all right so we've heard your number ten. We've heard my number six Adam driver. Who's your number nine performer? The decade? Okay boy this hurts me because it wasn't too long ago I was asking if this was the best actress of the twenty tens and I still think she's in the conversation but Elizabeth Moss. When I sat down to do this list fell down to number nine okay and I think for me. It's it's partly again. I'm backing into the list here. It's partly because her strongest work was on television. I don't know if it's fair. We're a film show so I'M GONNA hold that. It's not fair okay. It probably isn't yet to discount the handmaiden and madman but you're right if you include those. Then how is she? Not One of the performance of the Dick and Jane campion's crime series top of the lake. Yeah so so you know those three works alone in her work in them specifically I mean madman. I made the argument. She's as crucial to that series. Almost as crucial. Let's say Don Draper. She was the lead in in Top of the lake in the lead the handmaid's tale but I look back at the big screen to and The one I love I think great in. I know you love the film more than Me Adam but the collaboration with Alex. Ross Perry's Ben. My favorite thing about those including are probably hurt toured force performance of the last. Ten years is in her smile. I think just from last year and then yeah squeezing in that great supporting part in US last year as well getting to show her comic chops I had to keep her on this list but when I started comparing her to the filmography we're going to get to higher up. Yeah I couldn't put up there at the very top. Yes same process with me. Though she slipped a little further I did begin by ranking top ten actresses top ten actors then figured out how to merge them and go made the cut. I Have Elizabeth Moss in my six through ten actresses but did not make my top ten overall. My number ten is an actress. And this is one where you could accuse me Josh of maybe looking ahead a little too much but I think the foundation of great work in this decade is also there. She is the only other one that woman I'm about to mention. She's the only other one with driver who feels to me like locks. We could already pencil them in for when we're doing this list in ten years okay. We're GONNA look back on the twenty twenties and go. Of course. This was the decade of Adam driver and of Sir Sha Ronin the three great performances come in Brooklyn in Lady Bird and of course last year in Greta. Gerwig 's little women and there's two great films there for me all time great films frankly in Lady Bird and little women. I'm less high on Brooklyn though I like Brooklyn quite a bit and I really do think. It's a wonderful performance from her. She also appears of course in Wes. Anderson's Grand Budapest hotel and I really liked her in Joe. Wright's Hannah for me. Ronin is the insistent innocent. There is some naievety about her. As you look at those performances Brooklyn ladybird little women but really just a lack of experience. There's the census. She still has a lot to learn about herself and about the world and relationships. She's going to make mistakes. She's GonNa make a fool of herself but that's because she's always going to put herself on the line there is a determination and there's a voracious nece to Ronin characters that I find really appealing. I was looking back at my notes from our review of Lady Bird and I mentioned the way she just kind of burns with this intensity and this focus. It's almost like she's from another planet in the way she talks and the way she studying the people she's engaging with there is this provocation that is inherent to the lady bird character where she's just so eager to expand her knowledge her base of knowledge. It seems like that's what she's after in every encounter in life and maybe more than anything. Josh the reason why I wanted to make sure I fit. Ronin on this list is I just want to continue to put out into the universe. This idea that I did see floating around social media after a recent Hollywood reporter with Ronin and Greta Gerwig where they talk about future collaborations with each other. And there's a great question by the interviewer posed to Gerwig about working with Ronan and differences in working with her now versus lady bird and I thought Gerg's answer was really instructive. She says it's the benefit of working with someone you've worked with before. I felt like in some ways I had conceived lady bird before I knew she was playing it and I'd written drafts of little women before I knew she was playing it but I don't know any other way to say it. Except she was an author of Lady Bird but even more so she was an author of little women. I felt like she knew exactly what we were making the whole time as a filmmaker as much as an actor she really became a second director for me. It was like an extension of every thought. I had she'd walk out in another step. I think honestly the closest I've had to it is writing. With Noah Noah Baumbach who is her partner. But that's fitting of. Gerwig I think in her personality that she so generous in giving Ronin all that credit as an artistic collaborator but I think it speaks to the intelligence and again that voracious nece that comes through in her character's it's probably embedded within ronin herself. That made her such a good collaborator with Gerwig. And the key line from this is Gerwig saying I'm interested to see what movie we make when searches in her fifties. And I'm in my sixties. WoN'T THAT BE INTERESTING? And I'm thinking that's great but I want to see the movie that you make together when searches in her thirties when searches in her forties. I can't wait until the fifties I would be perfectly content of those to just continue to make movies together until the end of time. So Sir Sharon did just sneak onto my list ten. Hey I like your band with Jona rubies. Len Fans knew awesome.

"I was watching the movie at one hundred and fifty percent speed. I didn't watch the whole movie that speed but that part was really hilarious. Feed bounces off the wall really fast and then it must have left so it must have been even funnier when no time passed at all L. Let you as one year later. And he's out. This is a backup a year had passed. He did not being too hard. It's important to note. We're only bring these things like well. They're the expert of the things that could have written the story that were source material. Which is what really happened was I think he was in a pit for awhile and got out but because the shogunate seems important for him to be in the pit but but what really happened is much more dramatic. He became a pretend drunkard and went to horses and stuff to in pretending to have the live this lifestyle while see really organizing these forty seven Ronin touch on that with the one guy that gets tricked by the witch. I guess but like the exchange point like becoming dissolute visibly divorcing his wife which is in the film but but recommending context about why. He's doing that. Show this wonderful man pretend to fall apart even maybe think let me think he is falling apart a second before you revealed to me that he's actually faking it. That's like just could have been entertaining scene in the movie. I kept thinking of things that are like oh I know where they're going and this is going to be cool and then they never win those directions away. A really lamed ambush scene was so lame we go up and it's like fake Lord Kira it turns out to be the witch and then it just happens over drawn drunk. It looks like everyone died and then like no one died. No well that was that was. The Guy was gifted the sword. Well the where everyone dies in the room when the things are goes materials that was. That was a test that was a fantasy fires. Yeah it's like when dude gifted the sword because she doesn't think he he should have the sword anymore he's like I got a better one and they'll just die immediately and then she goes to cure and she's like I got him. Check it out. I got the sort rents like. How did anybody to this conclusion? This is so confusing. There's comparing confusing. But if we if we go what he was talking about which is where they go into the place and there's all the weird face guys with the yellow robes. Don't pull your ten tenge yet. That is where Kiana was so it was awesome shit that I want the movie about examples effects I. Those effects of the tango were garbage. I like the effects. I was willing to put up with it. Yeah I took like a grain of salt. Here's what I wanted the movie to be. I want to do and all these guys to be marching through a bunch of magical forests. Yeah keep coming up against a bunch of weird tests they have to go against Yep and also fight a bunch of big cool Mosley No. It's it's sort of like it's a little bit of a hell boy concepts where like he. He's specialist character. That's cash comes from that world but he writes for the humans. And Yeah they never they kept trying to lean back into this historic incongruous that they were. GonNa Merge these things together and I felt like it was like a raveling into something interesting especially like we went to the pirate land and then we were going into this crazy bamboo forest demons and I was like. Oh this is going to get crazy. Like they're gonNA fly. In ships and Shit creators were Heritage Hills Lord of the rings and just goes right back to being like a classic the classic into believing in the climax of the movie when the attacks that monster the end. He does the yellow robe the attack. It's like when he was raised by the demon and the rest of the way he told them he said he would never use it. Yeah okay well anyways. That was like the lamest way to end that fight because he's just like twirl for half a second and then it was over. Yeah he stabbed him in the head and it's going to chat with the head earlier. I looked Elliott the runs of the movie and they're still twenty minutes lands and I was like okay so this is like a false climax and some other stuff is going to happen but no then they just ramble for ten minute questions like the Lord of the Rings Quick Question Chris. Are we recording? I it's important to note that another historical reference but this whole popularity of the story. I'm going to touch on failed so bad in Japan because you brought that up but like I wasn't that great of a movie but also it was a circle. They want it the way I read. I was reading an article and could have been wrong. I'll look for what you read. But like the lead the under the cultural underpinnings that drove this resentment that out that warrior elite class. That again was now the bureaucracy running the country. There's Samurais that are bureaucrats now in the nineteen twenties because that's the change. I'm talking about when they rapidly. Industrialized and that same change led to this resentment culture this warrior culture of basically You know people disenfranchised from what they believed that are imagined historical amazing roots. It's a little bit like I'm sorry. I was brought like in Roman Times There were people were always writing. About how every generation before them was better than they were famous with cater the elder that was bemoan his his senatorial class. And that they're all weaklings. Forced Romans helped force Rome until like another pretty much unnecessary war with Carthage. But that's a side note the wayside. Sorry sorry something that happened in Japan in the nineteen early nineteen hundreds and what happens after the nineteen thirties. Is that resentment again amongst the leadership class led to this expansion movement which is where we get to World War Two so just reading more context of this like by the time. This movie came out. those kinds of stories had lost in this. I was reading had lost. Some of their cultural. He'll because there were about really what is currently do not like the best period of time in Japanese history which is like the the start of the war of the expansion the eventual collapse. I know Roy is in. The previous generation is not popular instead now. Okay boomer yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It does feel like the movie's tone down. I mean I just missing a lot of lionising. The previous generation is popular amongst different group of people. And they're talking about how they're the best. They don't even talk about the so-called greatest now the things they want to go back to the nineteen fifties which was the generation. That was raising them at that time they want to go back to being sixteen and getting a Lotta Pussy. We'll have the same haircut they had when they were sixteen point. This movie should've been magical stuck in the medical world. Your point is well temperature just stayed magical and stingy. Don't call forty seven Ronin call or if you're GONNA call that touch all his historical cultural real things that are part. That story that are that are about like these huge epic things that could have been knitted in this story. Three monsters that were in the movie I would not have been the whole time being where the monster which which of that brings you the point. The guy the giants started the movie with a monster. I know it was response on it. It's like when I started out. It was like cool monster heart cool. It's like shadow of the Colossus. Yes that have been so much fun if they just followed through with that but the member curious hero that fights against the in the battle after the one dude succumbs to which witchcraft from this. Isn't I don't remember that because I wrote down? I don't care about anybody or have any idea where this movie is going up the mountain so the mountain did. Did you guys pick up the fact that he has just an enchanted piece of armor? Now yeah they give it away. I kept waiting for the revealing of the big guy that he he. He had like a sword twice as long as they came out and gave them swords. Why didn't they give them both the same sort of it's a tournament? Why do the witchcraft on the guy? If this dude just going to slaughter people aren't like it doesn't make any sense. He's an I pretty sure. He's just an enchanted pizza goal. Because when you see his death scene because I kept waiting for the reveal. A coup weird it blows up the armor and there's nothing inside full metal health which is what they go reverend bravado furious man but I would have been good if it was just like a weird corpse. Yeah it would be good if it was anything was anything good is when they got him down then like a monster came out of the fucking awesome. Were they open it up? And there's nothing there and kills the dude that finds it. I wanted to talk to him and takes him over. Makes him into a monster wasn't good about a movie I really like the all and the DAD's hair the Lord guy that it has died in the early. He's a decree job. If you're listening right now we to go. I think it was like for the Saturn Award. You know what I thought was Kinda Weird. Was that a win. The forty seven ronin commits Seppuku. At the end none of them have seconds forty-six because forty six. Yeah but that's the really important part about having is committing. Seppuku is that you have a second to cut has a second. But that's that's traditional Japanese stuff at least a reading the book Shotgun which is supposedly well researched. I don't know Great Book everybody. Read it. But you're supposed to have a second and I don't know why they didn't have that now seems I thought it was weird wait. He's he's really quickly telling you know that was it. I just like Oh okay. I thought it was weird that they were like down to do the mass suicide thing. I don't know it just felt like they're like hey You set us all up to do a bad thing and that really happened. That really happened. It was forty seven Ronin. They waited for a year. That killed the guy who killed their master and then they all committed Seppuku because it was to restore honor to themselves and their master. If it really had no look it up it really happened. Well I'm saying to happen. He's having a story. Might you know like all the stories that we learned about what happened in the seventeen hundreds all all all real so there's a lot there is a little bit of a debate on that what. I read viable disparate sources. That you're gonNA find anything that said that it was false when I was reading and I was like. Is this just like a fairy tale and it couldn't find it you know. I couldn't find anything that said. Humpty dumpty was falling there is I loved the movie remember when Kennedy got find out they found out. Oh no he was trying to save are honored by pretending to be a Samurai and fighting armor which was ter which so then they beat him with. Cain's Yeah I really love when the fat guy was like no everybody stopped beating him and then he went down to Kennedy said. I'm sorry and then he hit it again and he was the guy to throwing rocks at him when he was a kid. Yeah that doesn't make any sense that seem to make any so the fact that Pretend to be in. The armored didn't make any sense. I didn't really get that get found out and it's going to bring down shame and then the fact that Taylor anyway..

"Ury Our back day three. You might not believe it because he just listen to the first half of the week three. Yeah we're doing this Story Episode Twenty First Candle. Today we did. Yeah and it is smoky in this room. Really see my penis and so tall. We can all clearly very visible what he means. You can barely see the end of his. Yeah anyway the forty seven Ronin in All right let's kick it off. So what do we? What do we feel? What's general feelings on forty seven Ronin? Where DO WE WANT TO DO A synopsis? Adams did not say that. I wanted to do the snaps. You're going to a K. So give us a synapse. It's seventeen hundred seventeen one seventeen o one Although ends in seventeen o two Kiana was born as a running running away from something you don't know in the beginning and he's a kind of taken in by this local. Lord in say half breed is just like share song and He grows up in Samurai culture figured him by Lord a Sauna and He grows up learning. Samurai ways No one really knows what his backstory as nor does he really seem to recall it or does eventually but then he He grows up and he. It is showing that he has as an asset to this clan to this family because he can sense and hunt down monsters plagued the region so he is used for that and the one of the very first early scenes is him defeating a monster in that credit goes to somebody else to the son of the main guys are the Lord of that area. I'M NOT GONNA use Japanese word because I wanNA miss mispronounce anything but And then from there. He by what happens next guys. Who's I forget it? So basically what happens is that there is a rival. Lord Lord Kira who wants the land of Echo right-hand he enlists a witch in order to create a scenario in which Just want to point out every time. Chris says one of these names. He's looking at a piece of paper. Because I had to write this down clump. Wear the good guy. He basically is is clump character like yeah anyway. Lord cure creates a scenario using the witch to frame. The good guy who ends up being murdered by the SHOGUN'S. He commits suicide ceremony during a ceremony with the king so basically yeah the the the the big head guy that runs all these lords is overseeing some games some tournament games that have periodically yes shogun or whatever. Anza. Yeah you're right. The the local Lord is be bewitched didn't attacking the cure character. Which is sacrosanct. You cannot attend. This is actually like this point because I'm a big too key. She Mickey found and Takeshi make his thirteen. Samurai is a scene plot point but done better. Yeah and it's attacking a guest in your house is the worst thing you could do right. And so the shogun allows him to commit Seppuku in order to restore honor to his family and then a show gun decides that in order to create peace between everybody that he'll Lord Kira takeover Lord Whatever his name is land macos land and marry his daughter who in the daughter's in love with Keno but Keno get celled off as a slave and then she gets thrown into a pit for a year the local Sam that Lord are declared Ronin because they do not honor their Lord in the proper way and so they all make plot to kill kill Lord Kira yet. Yeah and they don't own. A Ronin is basically Samurai without a master. Yes right and if you don't know what forty. Seven Ronin is basically forty seven times worse than the movie Ronin. Yeah that's that's that's accurate. I didn't I liked this movie. Lot more than chain-reaction a lot more beautiful. I have is beautiful agree. I like this. I think this shots were beautiful. I thought the camera was great. I thought everything but the pacing was bad and I know one is pretty slow because the The director what's his name. Name Call Rinse had. He had the guy who directed this movie had no experience whatsoever. There's no reason for them to put them at the helm of this movie. Which is one hundred and seventy million dollar movie? Oh no experience. They removed him in editorial in the studio person and then did re-shoots on Kiono to feature him more so I was saying. Kiato seventy like eight times. Kiana Keanu Canyon. It's important to note. I have a couple of gender rich. I'll I'll check these whenever they seem appropriate. But it's important to note that this movie was first attempt for Reeves to helm or at least be a very starring lead and his move sense ten years previous when he started the last matrix movie really. Oh this is him in the phase of his life where he's in constant team came out after the Matrix. Yeah but after this movie. It came out after the breeze. There's no way there's twenty thirteen. Yeah this pretty. Recent Constantine came out in two thousand and the point of that is this is definitely breathes in his. I'm rich for life now and I just WANNA do cool movies face in my opinion but maybe have the dates wrong. Sorry but pretty sure my crystal Jack. Constantine the Shitty Song about it. That's okay I don't mind a good song. What's the last Matrix movie called Matrix? Revolutions that come out because. I think that might have been two thousand five as well now. Those two thousand three. Yeah there's Matrix. Revolutions then concentrated okay. Sargus But either way this is this is grown up doing cool products. Sonko. Yeah he's already got a ton of money and being a beautiful movie and actually what struck me about? It was that like it felt like every shot had a thousand people in Red Samurai armor and the Cherry blossoms. Yeah and I was so underwhelmed by at five minutes in because it just felt like the same motif over and over again and over and over and over again at super slow motion speeds Washington saying it was slow motion. I'm saying the movie itself was slow. Motion Yeah I think one and a half time speed and still some of the stuff was too slow from it because I think the problem was in the editing is that I thought the movie was cool when I thought editing was Coen pyro second. Have you guys enjoyed Kung Fu movies in the past absolutely love concert and in fact? I love Chinese fantasy action movies that they've gone on Netflix. And they're all super over the top and fund. This one would really really hated. I know this one was Japanese American film. I'm just saying I I do enjoy Asian fantasy action. Movies is what I'm trying to get across. What the problem with this one for me. A lot of it was there were very few actual characters in the movie. Almost everyone was so solemn and slow spoken and then Kiana was twice as much as anybody else who's practically get fucking corpse right so You know who else course movie you know so much more in this world. Who else hated this? This Japanese this Kung Fu action movie donald trump Japan fucking because the rest of the world get made a lot of money. This is based on a real story. I have another important to note. It's important to note that the historical events Friday. This is based on Don't Volvo which became extremely no demon stuff no which it became extremely popular in the early nineteen hundreds in Japan because there was a lot of undergoing an extreme modernization efforts. Their leaders at that time were minor as the country. And there's a lot of cultural hand wringing around. Losing Heritage Honor Pride so stories like the forty seven Ronin which are about honoring. Your Lord became extremely popular in the culture because they're trying to hold onto this sort of traditional heritage kind of thinking so what some of the meat that could have been in this movie in terms of like appeal to broader ideas sensibilities. But they had none of that in there. There was no. There is no guys in the original story. There's no which they had stucked. If this had not been connery's movie and it just been a based on the original I would love. It would have been so much fun. It's also important with during period that this is based in Samra class. Class moves slowly out of being the main people of warfare and into just sort of a bureaucratic class. They're losing a lot of their militaristic kind of means and that's really important or could have an important the movie if they leverage that at all which was leverage in in another move we can get into later but But the Last Samurai. Yes because of the proliferation of gunpowder weapons and the resulting impracticality of honor based one on one type of combat but Mirrors like in Europe in the late Middle Ages when nobles didn't really fight wars anymore although that's the whole point of nobles as they protect the land and they find the wars because they're the only ones that can afford the weapons when all that stuff became more streamlined than Monterrey's than it was the communist fighting. It also happened in Rome with the Marian reforms when you didn't need rich people that had landed on were to buy weapons and stuff so this is a common trope inhumanity and it has deep roots in almost every culture every culture and again. None of that. Shit was in the movie based on this area. Talk or hints at any of these concepts about this commune experience. This did definitely feel like the greatest hits of like a cool scenes from Kung Fu movie. Yeah except for win. I thought it was funny because when they went to the Dutch island the Dutch slavers basis like a pirate island. And I was like this looks like goonies and then we go to fighting the guy from the goonies and sort of I get what you're saying there same face. I like the art. Styling of the movie in The star. Yeah I shifted. Yeah I told him. Oh it's just way too fucking this whole moved to Huntsville. Movies are slow. Felt like they were matching pace of a classic Kung Fu movie yet. Maybe they didn't they. They did a little bit of honor but like man comfortable movies. Honor Shis might be pedantic or whatever notes are if it is. We might have to could be wrong just like the Constantine thing but I believe Kung Fu a Chinese disciplined and Japanese Samurai Culture has nothing to do with status Chris the point. I'm just saying that. Like martial arts this is basically a Kung Fu movie who it I just want to say this is dumb geeks which say fuck you you racist asshole. Jon Jang Reference Akira Kurosawa or they're trying to reference some of the Classic Samurai movies. That are. They're still very slow pace. But it's all about honor and it's all about like what's that stuff we were talking about the cultural independence that are motivating on these actions. We don't have anything in that in this movie. That kind of speaks to that and it's also like when we were talking about on Johnny Mnemonic. That was another movie that was very slowly but it didn't earn it. I love a slow paced movie but it needs to have something that you're drinking in right and you can't be drinking in the Samurai character saying their lines at halfway there. And they're all forgettable they're all forgettable. There's not a summer. There's forty seven of the fat guy. He has a motion kind of you had the one glaring state scene where you want to tell you. I made a joke and it was like the shit about that one. The only line I care about that guys when he tried to cut the tree and he said my swords broken seamus forgettable. Those the part where he was bathing in the river and he sees Keanu show up. Super Bowl is interesting. In that part was that he was freaking out. And what happened to see you? And so we're like all the other guys with him but can't to the guy where they were just like. Yeah you don't care that everyone is happy or the actual really sucks. They've just been going through the woods forever. We're not excited to see our France. The the main dude OSHII. Yeah the main summer oshii the his arc is so weird because we have him and actually go back to the historical thing. There's actually I was reading the Kapadia so I have no idea. But there's some sort of debate on the forty seven Ronin that oh. She should have attack to avenge his master. Waiting here was actually dishonorable Blah Blah Blah. There was a famous Samurai who came in the later period like a century later. Whatever his his master Lord died and he was going to kill himself per usual but he knew his master's in like they've that practice. Which is what you're supposed to do them right instead. He went and then went to be isolated monk and he wrote this book of criticisms about how to be in this on our honor societies class society and he wrote a schism that they should have attacked right away. It wasn't about shouldn't have been thinking about how to be successful but just going through the honorable action of dying while they revenge their master's life you know so anyway I mean they bring that up a little bit in happened they do. Yeah kind of but he gets there like break as will throw him into the pit they throw him in the head thing and I didn't understand pulling them out of the pit. I do have a note here at the point where they were. They were like throw in the pit..

nominations for that film bills worker is joining us now long time energy reporter for the sun times still with five Chicago is a contributor and bill has followed many many many Oscars lot but you know I always loved about you bill you you follow the local entertainment scene so well and always told us such interesting nuggets about what was going on here well that's true I've always loved you know I mean I think that's important I think it as we all know how they moved in this world of of the current the twenty first century media I think local local local is the way to cope in general because I think that's what people really want to get because they can get you know the national stories from other outlets but but this is an interesting year at all well it's always interesting with the Academy Awards although I do think in certain categories is here there's there's some things that are pretty well said but I know we think of course they're going to go again this year without it without a without a whole list which I don't think it's a terrible thing I think you know well I'll tell you why I think so often unless you get somebody like Billy crystal who's always knocks the you know the ball out of the park I think over the years I think will be colder did a good job we recently had our critic's guide Bible to the critics choice awards which of the broadcast broadcast critics and you know we had two days he did a wonderful job and I think because he didn't try to overdo it you know came out was charming and didn't you know try to be too cute but I think sometimes I think people want to see who's going to win they want to see the presenters I don't think they want a lot of big production numbers and all those give me some wonderful musical numbers at the Oscars you know your health Elton John performing in and you know it's gonna be really quite quite wonderful in the court system the result of a few people who really are talented musically but it's gonna be interesting to see what happens on Sunday I can say I disagree too but I'd like the host I guess you're right but what okay what is a good host was a good house because right some of the host I kind of remember the Anne Hathaway that was a disaster and as much as I loved you know but she yeah I do too but she what that wasn't right for her at all and James Franco I think the the combo wasn't right and that yeah then they tried to do so many acts that an already long ceremony got longer and longer right letterman was not successful either you know so I mean and and I love him but I mean I just it's just a very tough job I will say that so I think sometimes a safe way to go is with out the host and we'll see how it goes David Letterman wasn't wanted the Oprah uma uma Oprah right rumors were rolling their eyes he's like I got to go and I got a key thing is we we didn't work we actually have some audio here from Billy crystal because he was just on Jimmy Kimmel okay crystal has hosted the Oscars I think nine times total nine times jingle himself is hosted the Oscars twice yes yeah he did a good job he did so the two of them had thoughts about the hostess Oscars here's here's what they had to say I always loved being out there I I loved the guess the trusts you know that the movie academy had a made to to get me out that I always I felt like there was a great honor to do it and I think that when you have a show that's as long as it is is going to happen and I think the problem with the no hosting perhaps is that there's not somebody out there to capitalize on that moment ledge view had when the wrong Best Picture right who could forget that the one that's right but he does make a good point there he does make a good point that you can can bring it into the moment and and capitalize on it that is a very good point I hadn't thought of that someone says something that you can sort of have fun with right that just sort of right out there and then they bring it back and make everybody sort of laugher connect over that moment we just had a listener say six three oh what about the la la land fiasco that would be weird without a host because sort of look at each other like what that would that would have been terrible and and then on a lighter note I mean it's great when you have somebody you know when when Jack Palance remember that the one arm push up you know on the sages many years ago and of course and you know Billy came out and made a great joke about it because you know those are the things that you love love to see happen yeah my favorite also I think was on my list of favorites I should say Ellen DeGeneres remember that a normal than the selfie she took and then when she was busting Steven Spielberg around a telephone tell take the picture you know when I could change my point of view you're either going to go maybe on your side your honor but you know I heard you it coming in when you talk about once upon a time in Hollywood that really was one of my favorite favorite movies of the year I see like bill if this one is sort of got a little bit of an unfair advantage because it seems like one of those movies that people in the industry natural sort of are drawn to because it has history of historical factor I know it's sort of a bag I would love to see it with but it's it's one of my favorite but I think all of the momentum seems to be from the directors guild of the producers guild all of the different wards have been happened sounds like it's going to be nineteen seventeen which I liked very much but technically it had some incredible you know incredible beautiful moments but my favorite if I was going to pick one it would be once upon a time in Hollywood or parasite which of course is going to win trust me it's gonna win best foreign film the people that are further further Oscar parties if they want to fill out there if you get if you get some of those lesser known categories right you can win the Oscar Poole I've no I bet it's true that's a good strategy that's true yes I have eight one five Oscars praying for no politics I need a break yeah what do you think we all do I think we all do and I think that will be that's one thing that I hope we do have because I think after what we've all gone through in this country in the last few weeks I think yes no politics is a very good suggestion but it's interesting because in terms of all the acting categories I think they're pretty well locked into a whole I think it is going to win and I think most people do what do you think what you got for best supporting actress I think well that's what the one category where there could be a surprise in the usually is a surprise the one category excuse me would be best supporting actress because even though most people think it's gonna be Laura Dern was terrific as a divorce lawyer in marriage story you know who could possibly slip in there because he has won a few things as far as people from little women who played one of the daughters and that's one category but I do think it's gonna be Laura Dern for best Supporting Actor it's Brad Pitt as one everything is beloved by many people in Hollywood you know it's sort of his his year in his time and I think that's a pretty much of a lock in for Best Actress it's it's I think pretty much going to be Renee Zellweger for Judy plank Judy Garland and although I would look I would be disappointed if there was a real real upset here in Jersey ronin from little women one because I think she's terrific but they're all these categories have great nominees and of course for Best Actor again it's probably going to be Joaquin Phoenix because again he won everything so far incredible performance I didn't see G. R. A. Renee Zellweger in Judy but I didn't know that that was not universally loved by critics no it was not what happened there was everybody pretty much loved her I mean I agree with this the movie itself was just sort of you know just so so I think the reason she's basically the nominee the only nominee for that movie there may be a cost and it might be a minor on the minor categories I shouldn't call minor but one of the most popular categories but the movie itself was not great she was what made the movie yeah I you know I I didn't see that because of sort of the reviews the main one that would be worth revisiting because I loved her and that was the online series where she was the rich woman who is trying to convince people a little comes of age is he was a recent series streaming and she was phenomenal and I just remember and she sings herself I mean the fact that she you know somebody's like a voice like garland which everybody knows so well the fact that you do your own singing I think is also a major push any and there's so many scenes in this movie you look and you think it's actually Judy Garland on stage and screen excuse me so I think it's and that's pretty much of a lock but there again you know you never that's pictures that that was one I mean I think it's probably going to be nineteen seventeen but I would be happy with virtually any of those you know that are up there there's nine nominees you know because they changed the rules a few years ago but you know a lot of talk this year the parasite which definitely is gonna win best foreign film it might be the first year that the best foreign film also wins Best Picture that would be somewhat of an upset but that would be a fascinating thing to see what is the Netflix series that Renee Zellweger was and I was trying to remember to remember bill out we only have a minute here but if you if you are going to the movies this weekend as I know some people do when they try to say Hey I'm gonna catch up on some of these Oscar nominated films what what was one of the films you would suggest the probably not many people have gone to I think I don't know I think first of all I think you know probably nineteen seventeen I think it's it's a kind of a tough movie to watch many ways but I think that that that seems to be the front runner for Best Picture if you haven't seen once upon a time in Hollywood definitely catch that and I'll tell you a parasite is be the third one because that is such it's got a real twist to it I can't tell you much and I would give it away but it that would be the film that is probably the one most unique dark comedy that come down the pike in a long time okay you got my attention on that I'm gonna check that one out bills record thank you so much for checking in with us at any time good to hear your voice same
Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
The Revenge of the 47 Ronin - January 30, 1703
"It's almost better than sports. The stay in history class is production of Heart Radio Harvey One. I'm eve and welcome to this day in history class. A podcast where we dust off a a little piece of history and place. It ever so gently on your shelf every day. Today is January thirtieth twenty twenty. The day was January thirtieth seventeen three a group of forty six Ronin in order Samurai without a master avenge the death of their deceased master by killing kit a Yoshinaga. Though the event occurred on January thirtieth based based on the Western calendar Japan used a lunar calendar at the time according to contemporary dating the event took place in Gin Roku fifteen on the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. This difference in calendars has caused some confusion. Over the date of the event that said the Japanese temple where the Ronin were buried holds a festival commemorating the event every year on December fourteenth during the Tokugawa period which lasted from sixteen. o three to eighteen sixty fifty seven Japan was under the rule of the shogunate or a military government. The shogun or chief military commander ruled in the name of the emperor. Aw Daimyo or feudal lords were vassals of the Shogun though they were limited from gaining too much independent Power Samurai no longer had to engage engage in battle since Japan was at peace but each Daimyo did hire army of Samurai to protect their families and property in Samurai still had Coz Ziff honor and conduct known as Bushido that they abided by Ronin often became masterless because they didn't fulfil their duties because they were defeated in battle or because because they're master fell from power or die if a summarize master died or was deposed the Samurai could choose to serve the new Daimyo but if his master was defeated or killed in battle or if he did not want to transfer his allegiance. The Samurai may choose to die by suicide. Those who chose to live as Ronin often did so in disgrace the story of the forty seven Ronin. One of the most well-known Japanese history began when emperor he got she yama stint imperial envoys from Kyoto to the shoguns court at Eto or present day Tokyo. A high official named Kiyoshi NOCCO was in charge as master master of ceremonies for the visit US Nagano. A daimyo from echo was one of the daimyo assigned to receive the invoice kid s about training meaning him and another Daimyo in court etiquette but kit a allegedly treated poorly possibly because of inexperience or because the presence awesome offered. Weren't good enough either way us. No attacked Kita wasn't hurt badly but awesome knows action was considered a huge huge offence. Arsenault was ordered to die by Seppuku. or a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment after awesome knows death. forty-seven his Samurai right led by OAC Yoshiko toes to become Ronin and seek revenge by killing Kita. They started gathering information on kid has house and they split up taking jobs as laborers in merchants to throw Canada and other shogunate officials off their trail. Oishi began to drink alcohol heavily and frequent Geisha the houses to alleviate suspicions and his agents began to think that the Ronin were harmless but on the night of January thirtieth seventeen o three the forty forty. Seven Ronin Matenaer. Eto One of the Ronin Ten Asaka Ki Ay Mon was sent to a code to announce that the rate on Cuba's mansion was happening. Other accounts of the incident. Say that he left after the battle but on this snowy night the Ronan told kids neighbors of their plans to attack his mansion and and they went forward with their plan after killing and wounding many of Canada's Samurai they found Kira hiding and beheaded him all the Ronin survived the attack back which lasted into the predawn hours of the next morning. They then took it as head to Austin as grave at the Sangha cousy temple and the story of their revenge and spread. The ronin were praised by many for their loyalty and for killing Kibbe. They had avenged the death of their master but their actions were still still illegal. Instead of ordering them executed the Shogun allowed them to commit. Seppuku a more honorable way to die. forty-six Ronin did so. Mr Buried at the same guy. Who
