'Bill & Ted Face the Music' isn't excellent, but it's still kind of fun
"Ted faced the music. It's not significant nor extremely funny, but it's certainly fun. And it's so amiable that I'd be kind of a meanie to say anything too critical of it. In case you're thoroughly pop culture challenged. This is the third movie and a trilogy of Dumb Guy, Buddy Cos. That began 30 Count them 30 years ago with the time traveling Stoner Movie Bill and Ted's excellent adventure that was 1989. There was a sequel Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey and 91. These guys are best friends, suburban goofballs in one of the rock star's billing tender in high school in the original film, they're gonna fail history. Oh, and by the way, they're played by then and played by now. Alex Winter and the Evergreen Piano. Reeves. I mean piano Reeves. His career is Blowing back up. There's a big resurgence with John Wick films and The Matrix franchise is continuing, but he loves this character, and he's got a great relationship and report with Alice Winter. Eso. They've come back for this third film and You know. Initially they're visited by this hipster from the future named Rufus, who shows up in some kind of phone booth that can traverse time in space. Like like doctor who's police box, and by the way, Rufus was played by the late great comedian George Carlin, and he takes them on a trip through time to help them pass his history tests and tells them that they are going to write and record a song that will bring the world together in peace and harmony. Will, apparently by this third film. Three decades later, they still haven't written a song to sign the song. I've always felt that the world is just one song away from peace and harmony to to bad. Hey, Michael, do you exactly that I have to want hilarious.
Bill & Ted Face the Music Review
"One, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, we met bill s Preston and Ted Theodore Logan in the movie bill and Ted's excellent adventure they returned in bill and Ted's bogus journey in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one, and now almost thirty years later they're back in bill and Ted's face the music Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as well. Bill and Ted respectively, and this time they'll need not just their triumphant man to save the world but also their daughters I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes we're talking about bill and Ted face the music on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR here with me and Steven from his home studio is plan Weldon of NPR's arts desk. Linda and also with us from his home in Washington DC, we have JC Howard who is a producer of NPR's Ted Radio Hour and how I built this I. J. C.. Good to have you back good to have you back. So if you are all not familiar, there's not a lot setup that you need or these films except to say that Bill and Ted were introduced to us as teenage bro Friends who had a band and just wanted to have a triumphant band when they were older and eventually they got sucked into time travel and picking up different historical figures, and later we're going to try to save the world and there was. A whole story where they were going to ultimately right a great and triumphant song it's it is a surprisingly complex canonical story of which you need to know practically nothing in order to enjoy I think these films Stephen now that I have thoroughly set the table kind of what is your attachment to bill and Ted these movies. If you have one, well, I've seen bill and Ted's excellent adventure. A BUNCH OF TIMES I've seen bill and Ted's bogus journey a couple times. These are movies that have kind of existed on the wind for the last thirty years. I re watched these movies within the last five years I. Think I talked about the. What's making me happy on this show but still kind of needed to go back to be reminded of what happens in them going into this movie I mean this movie is coasting on goodwill. There is a certain amount of fan service going on here. I mean I'm not sure how many people were clamoring to revisit these characters almost thirty years later but at the same time. Something really really smart happens in this movie and you can tell before you even start watching it, and that is that it is ninety three minutes long all three of these movies are about ninety minutes long and I think they understand that that is the perfect lengthier. There is a certain amount of sequel bloat here. The first two movies are incredibly Chintzy. The stakes in the first one are no greater than maybe Ted we'll get sent to military school and you're there's like the entire fabric of space time can be ripped apart. This is a very shaggy movie. I. Think there are stretches where it sags but. I do appreciate the number of updates. You don't have the gay panic stuff that really dragged down the earlier movies are no gay slurs in this movie. This movie bothers to give its female characters a little bit more agency the women who become their wives barely have any part to play in the other movies, and here you get more of that you get their daughters who are given kind of their own subplot. So I appreciate that it's not just rattling around with these two dudes who are now middle aged, but they're taking an interest in people outside of just bill. Yeah and you do get their daughters. The structure of this one is kind of that they go on one journey through time and their daughters meanwhile who are played by Samara weaving and bridget lending pain go off and tried to get a band together for their DADS to play with on this epoch song that's supposed to save the world. So you kind of have the one journey going on the other journey going on then naturally in the third act it all comes together and I did like those two performances from the daughter's there are also some kind of new faces in this one kristen Schall plays Kelly who is The daughter of Rufus who was the George Carlin character in the original JC it feels to me like you are too young to have a moustache attachment to these movies but I have been assured that that is not the case because television. Yeah. That's exactly right. I was actually super excited to hear this movie was happening and I'm going to show my age a little bit and say that I was born pretty close to the release of the First Bill and Ted Movie of Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. So my first encounter with these guys was as as they say a most impressionable youth. And I was one of what I can only assume are millions of kids who watch bill and Ted's excellent adventure every time it ran on cable TV. The thing about the first movie is the problem that they needed to solve was very simple. Billon Tade just needed a good grade right granted the solution to that problem was a little larger than life and included doctor who like time travel home box and all but the problem itself was simple. The second movie bogus journey was certainly a little nuttier. It had killer robots and aliens and the grim reaper. Didn't feel like it hit quite the right notes for me. No Pun intended. So win a third film was confirmed. The main question I had was like, what are they going to do? Are they going to try to recreate the success of the original and go back to simple run of the mill time travel Orlean into the bizarre and crazy and from just the trailer? It was clear that they weren't going to just lean into the bizarre, but they were diving in head first. But I think what separated this one from the nineteen ninety one sequel is that it has a lot more heart. The original movie was really about the friendship of bill and Ted and saving that they didn't seem to care as much about saving the future as much as they wanted to just make sure that bill and Ted could still just be friends. So it had this kind of surprisingly earnest quality and I think that was what was missing in the second film in this third one for all of its bizarreness in all of its doubling down on death in heaven and hell, and all these kinds of weird things. It really reignites the idea that there are friendships and. Relationships here that are worth saving. Yeah I think you're absolutely right that they go back to the relationship between those two guys being the center of the story and I. Think it's really funny. One of the things that I think is featured in some of the the trailer stuff but they are both married they both have you know lovely wives that you have met before since they got them from the past and they have relationships with their wives that are completely enmeshed with their relationship with each other. So they can't conceive of having individual marriages that aren't some. Like a four person marriage I thought that stuff was sort of funny because I think one of the things that carries over like if you're going to take these guys in age them thirty years you have to either assume that at some point they became more normal, which is a weird thing to assume about bill and Ted. Or you have to assume that they are still very bill and Ted, which would mean that they are still kind of very fixated on this idea that they are a duo and they are always together and they are each other's right hand Glenn you had indicated on twitter that. You perhaps did not have the same nostalgia for these characters that perhaps I have and others may have what is your take care? All right. The ticker about to hear from me Linda Holmes is going to be a subjective it's rigorous. It's clear eyed it is on demand by the gauzy scream nostalgia because unlike all y'all I never saw these movies until this week just to prepare for the show and I didn't see him for very simple reason I didn't have to I. Mean I was a junior in college nineteen, eighty, nine I was studying marine biology. I was dating a string of profoundly unfulfilled women and. Being. On a college campus and eighty nine and not here boobs heinous strange things are afoot at the circle k just over and over and over. So I felt like I got it. And think about the time late eighties early nineties mainstream. American. Comedy was kind of stuck in this catchphrase based mode and I was like, okay. I don't need to see this while I've seen them all now and I'm here to tell you. Sure I guess that's your thing. I like the Guy Listeners of the leads I. think that's the appeal here but left only once an excellent adventure. It's a visual gag that gets tossed off. It's a Freud at a mall holding a corn dog and it's like, okay, fine. You got me I mean it's low hanging fruit, but you got. And in face the music this new film shore on Paper Samara, Weaving Kristen Schaal Holland freaking Taylor they are gunning for me they are coming. But ultimately didn't stick. It's not supposed to. That's not what it's for. It just evaporates on contact with the eyeballs and maybe that's exactly what the world needs. Right now is dumb sweep dumb but I

So background in training is in gender and sexuality in America, primarily colonial America, but it's a moved into the nineteenth century now. So my previous work is largely focused on gender especially men in manhood, masculinity, and often sort of sexual components. Sex's part of masculinity, some certainly the for my first book, the earliest work on masculinity in colonial. America focused on career or calling and then the political arenas, and if it was domestic, it was much more about being a patriarch and head of household and the work on women had already talked about sex and sexuality as a component of femininity and of gender for women. So the contribution that I was trying to make there was to. Talk about how sex and sexuality mattered for men even going back to colonial days and there was all kinds of different ways in which that was spelled out in that book the article that you mentioned You're right that came I So the core for the book I didn't know there was going to be a book when I wrote. That article I had been teaching the history of sexuality in early America at Depaul..

Ah, Recession is deeper Zon previously forecast on Indeed it underlines the need for ambitious on coordinated you response. We already took a lot ofthe measures for the immediate crisis response on the season. These measures are bearing fruit, for example, if you look at, say Unemployment rates.

"He's the confirmed undisputed third-best sports better in the world as we found out the sadly controversial draftking spe national championship. He has a dog's name is he's often reminded by Jeff Ma. Of course it is. Rufus Poobah Rufus peabody rivers pure body. Jeff is Never GonNa let that get up. Okay if you're interested in Rufus is background I interviewed reveal about a year ago on daily fantasy edge. Pod If you go to episode two sixty one you can hear about that how he went to my arch. Tc Williams high school. I went to w t woodson and They're embarrassed us. Repeatedly you can hear about how Rufus went to Yale and then wasted his genius brain and Yale degree by betting on sports every day for the last ten years But anyways episode to. One Hundred Twenty here about that today. I would say I did the best. I could of my brain which is in a small market. You know I couldn't cut it with the big boys so I had to go sports betting anyways risk that background stuff today mostly focused on on some current issues again. If you want the background episode to sixty one daily fantasy edge I WANNA start with a little bit of Corona so. I haven't talked about Corona on here at all because I'm just not a scientist. I am not a doctor. I don't really have any hot corona takes I did find it Super interesting that so many guys so many sports betting guys you know I well. First of all. They've they think they're experts all of a sudden in east sports and stock trading in oil futures and Russian Ping Pong and epidemology to right. But I get it to some degree like if you have experienced taking set of data in modeling it. Well you can do that in theory with anything. So I'm curious if you had thoughts of trying to model corona what you thought of all the people in the sports betting in defense committee that were coming out with all their takes based on the models that they were trying to do with current. I also found it interesting that the public this is like a lot of people didn't even know what you know Statistical modeling was now. They see it and how it's affecting kind of policy and stuff like that with corona so. I'm just curious to get your take on on how all that went in the community will the problem now. Is that it Like the models. Don't that the models don't go forecasted which they're all probabilistic forecasts anyway People are starting to dismiss models in general statistical modeling but First off the thank you for having me back I love established the run. I thought you got what you guys are. Doing is absolutely fantastic. The contents great in real. It actually helped me get second my fantasy football league not the best fantasy football player. I tend to overvalue my own players in in. I don't wake up four. Am to get the first free agents after the waiver. Wire after waivers of clear lake other people in my league so but established the run is fantastic regarding coronavirus. I think it's a lot easier to criticize models than it is model yourself and I think I from we've been in that camp It's it's it looks like it's a lot of work but I think there are some lessons from China. Model virus are seeing other people. Curl Virus I think the first one is you need to know what question you're answering. So is the model projecting. What's GonNa Happen if there is? If there are social distancing measures in place if governments just continued to you know. Take Las a fair approach shore which that back in. March or something out so just saying Oh this is what can happen like it's well. What are the assumptions behind that the second I think this is really important is to understand the data? You're working with so similar sports. You need to contextualize it. Data coming out of China is not the same as data coming out of the US in different states in the US that testing people under very different criteria so in some cases More people being tested. We know that as more people are tested. There's more confirmed positive. Cases in some cases in some states may be more people being tested as a result of more people. Actually getting sick and and another is it might be just. They're more tests available. So there's things like that I'm in. That's very similar to sports. I mean if if you're if you're looking just at Raleigh Oscar data the stats for F. l. Last year and you saw that San Francisco Washington game in the rain. That was I think there is like maybe ten points. Total scored in. It was just ugly. You think well these are really bad. Offense isn't really good defenses like Redskins all-star defense right there on fight. It was pouring down rain in twenty five mile an hour winds and so You need to put it in context and you got to do the same thing with the data but I think with current virus. The problem is it's just so hard because we don't there's so much we don't we don't know what actually is going on in China we don't know where Russia some of these countries they have incentives to make themselves look good and so I mean that's that's an issue in the US to. I saw someone at Florida on who was in.

His father's resentment rufus success even though he really caused what Rufus does he didn't Russa Solo records than he had ever done on his relationship with Martha and Mountain Music in the House.

Difference between Direct and Indirect Taxes
"Okay so we've been hearing a lot about wealth tax and I don't even think most people even know what a wealth tax is and they stop listening because it's only going to affect they say only gonna affect those people making it or have a billion dollars or more but it's going to be a tax on everything they own so there are the the money they gave to their kids you know all of it all of it and so it doesn't seem to be constitutional at all but everybody is loving it because it doesn't affect them and it's gonna raise all this money but it's unconstitutional Kyle salmon is a senior contributor for the federalist he has podcast is co host of conservative minds welcome to the program Kyle how are you good thing for a mail client you bet so you wrote a very good article in the federalist about why Elizabeth Warren's well taxes completely unconstitutional but can you can you can you explain it in simple layman's terms WHYY and what a direct tax is you know just kind of break this down for us sure when the distinction I mean between DirectX an indirect tax is one that doesn't come up very much but it was something discussed at the constitutional convention because the founding fathers the the government they were living under the articles of confederation did not have the power to tax the other just ask the states for money and hope I got it so a lot of times you can get it because the states didn't want to pay it so when they wrote the constitution they thought well okay we need to be able to tax directly so Congress to levy a tax and we can pay for the army and the navy and everything else we need to pay for but they want to give in to much power to tax didn't want them to overwhelm the states and take away all of the people's money and and and put himself in a worse situation so they they split the difference and said that Congress could tax but they couldn't do any direct tax and less it would be apportioned by population so what does that mean at the constitutional convention Rufus king of Massachusetts asked what is the precise meaning of DirectX and according to Madison's notes nobody answered and they moved on okay good so even in the beginning it was sort of a compromise language but as a then we moved on it kind of took on the idea that a tax on people or property is a direct tax a tax on sales or imports is an indirect tax so Congress always is taxed imports or had the heavy buildings action ports of them and that's that's terrible and we've had that since the beginning the you know Alexander Hamilton came up with the whiskey tax which caused a little star in the west but it was definitely constitutional because it was a tax on on the sales of whiskey thanks but they could not taxed property directly was the idea unless they a portion that tax among the states so that each state paid its share according to population according to property affected was made property taxes impossible because it would make any sense why why if you had to state that the same population so but one of them was Rachel one of them was poor they both have to sit pay the same amount of property tax to the government among actively mean is that each poor person and the poor state had to pay the same amount as the rich people in the rich state okay sort of the opposite about taxes even in those days were meant to go so it had to be apportioned by the state meaning California and South Dakota would pay the exact same rate and as a state yes but it but if if one was California that had all the rich people there and south go head now the rich people they're they're screwed yeah that's why Congress never really impose a tax like that because it would have made no sense in the room with an angry so weak that work for about a hundred years now we get down to the first permanent income tax getting imposed in the eighteen nineties and people said Hey isn't this the same thing you know you're taxing income that's a direct tax and the Supreme Court agreed and they say you have to apportion this which basically meant they're gonna repeal it because the same problems then we passed the the sixteenth amendment few decades later the says you can do direct taxes on income but all the other direct taxes are still not permitted unless their portion what is the difference between my income and my stuff well that that's what the court said in in in politics that struck down the the on apportioned income tax in the eighteen nineties because they said look if you have property and we can't eccentric like they get income

U.S. announces tariffs on European planes, whiskeys and foods after WTO ruling
"At the risk of making your already trade addled brain just a little bit more addled there is news today of tariffs not however tariffs that the trump administration is imposing because it can no these are tariffs ten percent on on airplanes coming from the European Union twenty five percent on you industrial and agricultural products that are going to be imposed the White House said today because the World Trade Organization said it was okay the US one around at the WTO this morning a case where the EU is accused of giving unfair subsidies to the European plane maker Airbus seven and a half billion dollars worth of European Union exports to this country can be taxed that is per year to compensate the US for the damage. The subsidies have wrought there is as we should say a mirror image case being brought by the e U against the United States over Boeing that one's not resolved yet but the point is that this Brouhaha over airplanes plains which took a fifteen years count him fifth team years to get resolved is how trade disputes are supposed to work marketplace's Sabrina Short. It's going going to the WTO is like going to court. It is a legal proceeding getting information together compiling your arguments making can the arguments before the different panels.

Amount of dollars and therefore you United States or whatever other country are entitled to Take Action Take Action like slapping tariffs on goods from the country that hurts you. That's what happened today between the US lessen the U. But the trump administration for the most part has not been settling trade disputes this way for example with China China.

By blacklisting Huawei, the US could be shooting itself in the foot
"There's an interesting observation to be made here about the global economy, things that usually happened really, really slowly. Until they happen. Really, really fast. Oh, explain from American public media. This is marketplace. In Los Angeles. I'm KAI Ryssdal. It is Thursday. Today, the sixteenth of mega is always to have you along, everybody. We begin today with this ten days ago, Amir week and a half. Every indication was that the trade mad disagreements between the United States and China were all but solved couple more meetings, a quick Trump's, she phone call done and done. Now. It's tariffs as far as the I can see. And as of yesterday quite possibly a breakdown in the heavily, integrated and extremely globalized technology supply chain, we refer here, of course, to the Trump administration, effectively blacklisting, the Chinese technology, giant hallway, which will cut that company off from its American suppliers, chips, from Qualcomm and phone software from Google to name. Just a couple. You're all that in with bands on while way in other countries. And as marketplace's Scott Tong reports now from Washington, there does seem to be something of a digital iron curtain descending if the US shoe. Hallway, it also hits its own foot inside while we gadgets are innards from firms, like Intel, oracle and Western Digital but tech firms sensing the crossfire are trying to get out of the way and avoid partnering with companies subject to bands in retaliation says Linley Gwen app of the Linley group. I think that companies are trying to reduce their exposure to the band, and by fewer components from countries that could be affected the word decoupling is being whispered in the US and China that is each country may develop its own separate supply, chain, while we has long been on Washington's hitlist and is trying to make parts semiconductors in house. Business professor at ten Wong judge young university has a new book on wall way. He says the company can be self sufficient that can make it south. Maybe he's not as good as the US components, but it's not much worse. They still can't sell products so that prepare for these more than ten years, while ways, DIY project. Could accelerate Chinese innovation? And in areas like wireless, five G many see hallway as already ahead. So the US might not want to cut itself off says, political scientists Abraham Newman at Georgetown, France in the nineteen eighties tried to develop its own internet, and it was kind of ridiculous, and the risk is that we end up with a new version of that a lesser. They un-filed g network. He says the US is weaponising interdependence and could unravel a global tech supply chain that took a generation to come together. I'm Scott Tong for marketplace. You can argue till the cows come home about tariffs who wins who loses who pays wait. No, you can't consumers pay and nobody wins. But there is at least one agreed upon reality. When it comes to what tariffs due to an economy, the way things normally work don't work anymore. Marketplace's refinish your explains that one I don't know if you've ever grown plants in a terrarium they love it in there because they're protect. But when you take them, out and expose them to the outside world, they don't always do out there, not strong. It breeds a kind of laziness here Simon Lester is with the Cato Institute and he's not talking about terrariums. He's talking about tariffs tariffs that protect some US businesses from foreign competition. You don't have to compete with the best in the world, just sort of relax. You don't have to work that hard, you're not gonna face any competition. US steel companies, for example, don't face as much pressure to upgrade plants now they can in our raising prices without competition from foreign steel producers. Ultimately, I think if you want to sessile businesses, you want them competing in order to, you know me as a fishing has possible Chinese goods. Don't usually compete with US goods head on. We don't make a lot of the same stuff, but many goods that are made in America are made with Chinese parts tariffs. Make those parts more expensive Tim Keough teaches economics at the university of Minnesota gonna make things to the US shell the rest of the world. Be more expensive than we're gonna lose market share because of that. But the. Disadvantages go beyond that, take the tariffs on steel aluminum. The metal that would be going into the US now goes to global markets increasing supply and depressing prices outside the US Rufus York's is president of the national Foreign Trade Council.

In higher education news on this Thursday, three much reviled letters. S A N, t the college board purveyor of the aforementioned exam is adding a new score to it math, reading, and writing the optional essay and now adversity as in the hurdles like neighborhood crime, and poverty, that students might have dealt with getting into college. It's yet another attempt by the college board to keep its core product, the SAT, relevant as the idea. Of who gets in wear gets more attention. Marketplace's Amy Scott has more on that when Scott vers, I'll was weighing student applications. This college admission season he had another tool to consider. He's dean of undergraduate admissions at the university of South Carolina, along with grades and essays and test scores and environmental context. Dashboard. Offer details like family and housing stability access to AP classes and neighborhood poverty, and crime. And that did help us find some students that we would probably would otherwise not considered the university was one of fifty testing out the dashboard. This year, the college board will roll it out to all schools next year, and it'll be free, but SAT critic Robert Shafer with fair test says it's a business move with selective colleges under pressure to admit more students of color and low income students. More of them are making standardized tests. Optional people have long known that head scores were a excellent. Mega of accumulated advantage. And now, the college board is going to admit it by thing. You can't use raw scores. You have to examine them in context. The college board has tried something like this, in the past in the late nineteen nineties, it's so-called strivers program aimed to take socioeconomic factors including race into account. But Shaffer says critics accused the college board of back door affirmative action, and the program was dropped Tiffany Jones directs higher, Ed policy at the education trust advocacy group. She says the dashboard doesn't include race without looking at race explicitly. It's very difficult to try to account for racial inequality. Students also won't know their scores adding another layer of mystery to the college admissions process. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace.

Yes. The market's going way up today and the administration is talking about if we don't get a deal in ninety days. We'll go back and put those on, but what happens to the market ninety days from now, if we return to a trade war scenario, many say three months is not a very long time to achieve what the Trump White House is trying to achieve with China.

And also, you know, carry sadly passed away right before the election are. Yeah. It was right. Or maybe it was right after it was around that period. And. So there was this those this dark spirit, roaming, that I that my, you know, songwriting instincts were picking up on and it had to damn glazed. And then I didn't actually know the story. So then I thought, you know, might be good to actually know what I'm writing about. So I go Damocles, and and learn the story by Cicero, which is actually about, you know, king who is being courted by by one of the subjects Damocles and the damn thing. All must be wonderful to be king. And then, you know, they switch places mystically and Damocles, then the the king, and, but he notices this sort of his head and the idea that with great power comes great responsibility. And also great danger. So I so then I finished the song with with having known the actual myth. And also after you know, Trump had been elected president and. It just sort of all fit, sadly, very well. And what else say about Damocles, though about the song that it's not only, and I think this is important to to point out that in the song. I for instance, at the end of it. I, you know, I am a tyrant. Meaning that you know, when the sort of Damocles falls, it's on all of us, you know, and it's not really and it should fall. It needs to happen. But it's going to really devastate everyone. And I you know, I think we're just preparing for right now.

"Before you heard requiem was there a pop song that that kind of crystallized it for? Yeah. I was I mean, I what I also like to point out is that before opera, I was heavily into pop music, and it was a glorious period, you know, from my from about the age of seven until thirteen it was, you know, the arithmetic Cindy Lauper prints Tina Turner, I was really into the Thompson twins Blondie, you know, and stuff so you know, once in the mid eighties. When it started to get a little more late eighties. You know around around, you know, I don't want. I don't I don't like to put down people, but you know, like Huey Lewis and the news, which you know, I think in retrospect, you kind of look at their stuff like it was kind of amazing. But it was it got a little hetrosexual. It just got a henchman normative at a certain point for me, especially and then and then the whole grunge thing. Happened which was simultaneous to my opera phase. And I think oddly enough, you know, the opera my opera, my love Raba was a similar kind of desire that a lot of kids had when they got into Kirkman and stuff it was this desire for a certain darkness that that the world needed at that point. And you said personally you were around fourteen at the point. Yeah, you'd come out. Well, I'd come out to myself. I mean, I I haven't caught anyone officially, but I knew I was I was I was in gauged, and you know, sexual things I was all an aids was was decimating, you know, the world around me, and I had to go to boarding school that point. So what was the appeal of opera at that particular point beyond the music that you love? Yeah. Well, it was I mean, it was it really spoke to the darkness that that that was surrounding me. And I I had sex. I when I was around thirteen around that time, and that I are listening to opera, and I thought for a good ten years that I was going to die. I'm I honestly. And in retrospect, there was a very good chance that could have happened. You know, I, you know, every pimple every you know, scrape suddenly was opposes so comet, you know, it was this, you know, real. Trauma that opera thrives off. You know? And so I got a lot of solace from that. And a lot of. Answers, you know, in terms of, you know, the bigger questions, and you know, what really matters, you know, the power of love and the power forgiveness in the power of transcendence which opera always does. So so I do think also that there are these opera gods, and there's this kind of spiritual realm where oppa resides and that those go kind of chose me as well. Like there was that. It was like the art form came to me. And was like we want you to do our bidding very spooky kind of way. Because I've I've had experiences like that. Without bre since then where it's very very, there's a supernatural quality to that music that that I wholly believe in, you know, like like people believe in Jesus Christ, or you know, stuff like that. I believe in opera that way, do you believe that of other music? Have there been other kinds of music or songs that have changed the way? Maybe you know, I mean. I I've you all other music as as kind of as beautiful and fascinating and magical. But not not opera is is like a religion for me that you know, it helped me at that point. It also helped me greatly down the line when I was struggling with drugs and alcohol, and then it also helped me when my mother was dying. And and I'm sure it will help me, you know, and future disastrous. If there's any that will help you get through this interview. To put it on. Rufus Wainwright in Bruce headline back after this.
