You know, you left off with a concept of unity and community. How can that even exists with a bunch of individuals that's impossible as well as a culture. You know if we really have to come back into a realization and study of nature and the reality of who we are and what we are But no life, man or woman comes forth without the unity. Of a man and a woman that creates the conception. And then there is the inception that takes place once we're born into the world or the environment, which also Is a product of those individuals. Really, The child comes here helpless and some certain degrees. We remain help this independent throughout life so we can never become total independence. And I just like to say Faras close is concerned. We have to look that way. Most clothes come from come from a design and most designs have a projection. And the basic projection is a function. Generally protection. And also something that is pleasing and appealing to the senses. So a lot of times we have to be aware of that. When we do, we're certain things we can't just totally being different..

Star Wars the Clone Wars
"We have tim again from Rainbow, comics to talk star wars and should preface. He's not just the Star Wars Guru, but it just happened to be that. That's what we're talking about today, so thanks Tim. We're GONNA. Be Talking some clone worst all right now. No, I love I love the clone. Thanks for having me back I. Don't mind talking about star. Wars at all. I'm definitely the Star Wars Guy at the store I've got a big old tie fighter sitting on the sitting on one of the shelves, and Yeah I love Star Wars up and down left and right but i. do know other things. SO YEAH CLONE WARS! I know when we talked in the past. You're really excited before the final seat. Well I guess, maybe it's going to be the final season of clone wars, but the new one was coming out, and of course by the time you hear this, it's done so I, will let the listener know that there will be spoilers. It's been long enough. I think, and it can goes to the dark side, you guys. I didn't tell him. It's like saying the titanic. Sinks at the end of the move. It does I my dad still loves that movie and He loved the Titanic before the movie came out, but every the movie's been on TV lot lately, and he keeps watching it, and I was like you've seen the movie. I know it's real long. The boat saying. There there we segue into. That anikin goes bad. Anikin goes bad the and thanks for listening you guys. All, right. But I know you loved the series. Mainly a Soka I would say is probably your best most favorite character. You think, man. She's up there and honestly My love really lies with rebels. But I honestly believe my love for rebels wouldn't exist without clone wars, and I think that clone wars an epic. Very much stands on its own It is so grand like even rebels is like four. Seasons. Whereas clone wars we've got. what is it seven seasons and a move at two thousand eight the I? Did you watch it when it first came out or did you catch a little later? I caught the movie win. It came out on DVD. Because they released the first three episodes as a feature, and if you go on like Disney, plus and you watch season one episode one. That's not worth starts. You have to go on Disney, plus specifically I'm going to go ahead and date this podcast right now around. This is not gonNA work in ten years when Disney pluses and the thing anymore but if you go into Disney plus and go under specials. Specials they have star wars. The clone wars. It's like an eighty six minute movie or something, and that actually comes before season one episode one that was released in theaters and Samuel. Jackson is Mace Christopher Lee is count Duku and I think there might be a third like original voice. Okay? I can't remember off the top of my head, but it's interesting because with clone wars being as long as it is. Tom Cain to me is Yoda so in rebels? They bring in Frank Oz to do Yoda's voice in that in. It's really cool that they got Frank Oz. But seeing a Yoda in that style that CG style sounding not like Tom Kaine like weirdly sounded wrong, and it's the original. Yoda and I might be alone in this, but I just just to have. The the iota that I'd heard 'cause I mean. I haven't counted it, but I have to assume Tom kaine probably has more recorded lines as Yoda than than Frank. Oz does so yeah I guarantee you. He does and especially in that visual style, but that's kind of carried. I know rebels in clone wars aren't exactly the stay the same, but stylistically there's a there's a theme that goes that over rice all of them so. It was just weird rebels to hear Yoda with the original voice, but kind of wanting it to be the voice from Clone Wars I. think that's an interesting legacy in and of itself, that is if a soak is maybe not your favorite I guess, could you let us know maybe your top two favorite characters from condo and I'm sorry. Let me finish. I'm sorry. Honda. Is Is my favorite character and he carries over into rebels. And even there's even a series of kids books, and there's one that's about Hanin chewy with the foul can, and they They have to team up with with Honda I. CAn't remember the name of it off the top of my head, but the audio book is narrated by By, the guy who does voice, who's also Winnie the Pooh and lost Jim Cummings okay. So he voices Hongo in coon, wars and rebels. He does his voice at Galaxies, Edge, theme park at Disney. is Hongo and so there's a whole a whole audiobook. You can just listened to Honda. Tell you a story and it's it's like great. Honda's my absolute favorite.
Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema
"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.

"samuel jackson" Discussed on Lights Camera Barstool
"This is all you can check. Yeah. My only complaint about this is that this makes me think that they're going to show master chiefs face in not use Steve Downes voice, which I don't like at all. 'cause that's one of those things like one of the super iconic of voices for characteristic. You really can't mess with that. I don't think without fans getting super pissed. I'm not saying I would be super pissed. I just be like a whatever thing. But I think most people that would wanna watch a halo series. They're gonna be mad about that other than that. It's just it's whatever I mean master chiefs supposed to be like seven foot five, I think publish drivers like six foot four supposed to be three hundred pounds. Like, you need to really hit that home. I think despite how tremendously huge these dudes are already thinking fits that profile. He's big dude, very musk. But I don't know. I just don't know. That's that's how I feel about it. When when watchmen came out, I had a friend who said that the guy the Rochat guys played by the guy who voices master chief. That's Jackie Jackie O. Haley, not the voice of master chief, not even close famous master chief guy Gortana. I don't know how to feel about this. This is something that I was excited for years ago. Samuel Jackson was going to be in the master chief movie back in two thousand five this rumored to finally be a halo movie. I dunno. I daren't. They're good halo fan movies online too. There's like decent ones. I think the big thing again. It's just like I don't think you should show his face like part of the whole we're of the character. Whatever like, he's just a kind of a mystery. If you make his identifies face now Pablo Schreiber, I don't think that's going to be like register with fans. Why is he called master? Chief says rank in the navy does he have a name just John one one seven? Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Jeff actually got that question wrong. I think when I give them video game trivia, and I did that. I do miss halo. I missed I want to play original halo comedy Volve. Tell ya. I wanna really good halo. I went bungee to come back and do it. I halo five the campaign was like decent. Let the Mike Colter. Good guy was. Okay. But I don't know just didn't really register the same as those other games. Do you remember playing? I'm sure Jeff you do you like playing halo three online with friends and how gratifying experience throw line was amazing. And even just like going over a friend's house playing halo two written. Dash. It was awesome. Oh, Ila too. Good. I thought the graphics and halo two when I when I saw them on like video games can't get much better than this. This is the peak. They really can't this four players. Split screen action is the peak of gaming they like when you mentioned video games, like a few things come to mind. Like earlier dash Ren, Dr blood Gulch. I hear blood goal like that.

Matthew McConaughey | Career Arc
"Is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go

I'm assuming talking to Abbas did it, and it was immediately regretted. And I yeah. I don't talk about it. What is it? I brought it up. But I don't you. Don't get to say.

It's baseball related, and it's stupid is like the you with like with electrical deal super stupid. Let's just leave it like an image that you bunting. Now, I couldn't do that. And the numbers on lonzo's today, if you're playing, you know, stalling for that purpose. Yes. Four one three key. He's number two jersey numbers to he was drafted to maybe it's three brothers and his father. His father's on one dice a one in his brothers or maybe three plus one is four. He's played two seasons. That's too. So forty two one three and a one one and thirteen. Like, a thirty thirty one mean anything thirteen put it to this. But I don't think there might have been a lot of. That went into the numbers to be the bees out of there. The NFL has finally reacted to what happened in New Orleans and the NFC championship game. They have a role change.

"samuel jackson" Discussed on View from the Cheap Seats
"Do you need the money to Samuel Jackson need? He does like three or four movies every year. Does he need the money? Did it was it a situation and just found his lab, and he couldn't not take it was it just a. Situation out of convenience because I allow them to do something else that he really wants to do like get more kangols. Does it take away from what like I didn't care what Samuel Jackson hosted the Espy's? I thought that was fine. I'm saying does it take away from the great stuff that Samuel Jackson did like Pulp Fiction like Jackie Brown. Like, I mean, every Tarantino movies in as it certainly think of now when we think of Sam Jackson, I think of it a lot a shouldn't be thinking of it. He's in a lot of those commercials. He's yelling at a guy. Gary from the backseat. He's is that what you wanna hear? He's laughing really hard at a sort of funny thing that Charles Barkley said about a a bunch of food setup like the NCW finals, and he's going to probably come back and do a bunch of those who it's going to be you're going to see a lot of those commercials. So you say to yourself why? And I don't know the behind the scenes just like, I don't know about the behind the scenes how much. How important it was for LeBron to start things up with his media career, but he's a young guy. And if he's signs a smaller contract in Cleveland or somewhere else in the Easter in New York, or whatever you could still do all that we pitched a show to LeBron's company was LeBron there. No, that's his company is he gonna show Il maybe show up for a couple of he's got other people to run his company. He doesn't have to be in LA traipsing around the offices of his company he can fly out on a private jet. Come out. He's got ten shows on the air right now. Yep. Any coulda had those shows on the air, whether it was in Cleveland or LA, but he chooses to come to LA, and he is sitting down at the end of the bench away from his team during the team is just losing. He's completely destroyed the chemistry on the team completely. Nobody knows if they're staying or they're going. They don't care Luke Walton who was a promising coach now done they're talking about who's going to be his replacement ruined. A lot of things in the Jetstream that was LeBron going to the spot. That he wanted to get to. Yeah. Yeah. And it's not like the broad hasn't won some things. Just like Sam Jackson amazing. Sam Jackson like you won. You won with Pulp Fiction, you one with some Spike Lee movies you one with maybe you got to the finals but didn't win with Star Wars. Okay. Mazlan? Do you made it to the Donald good stuff made the finals, you didn't win just like LeBron Deuba Cleveland a bunch of years k, but as you're up against The Empire Strikes back you're up against return. The some of the other better better teams. And yet are better groups. Yeah. So look we we don't want and it's a shame. Because look we've always said we like LeBron we, and we want him to what he is is an athlete and who he is. We've all wanted him to be the best player. I wanted him to win a couple more of those championships that he almost one. But didn't I would love it. If we're sitting here right now. And he wanted to more of the ones that he didn't win that he couldn't win so shifts call five out of nine five hundred nine and you're saying. There's no question this guy. He is in the conversation with with LeBron. He's in the car with George Jordan. He's in the conversation, and he may still be in the conversation for some people going nine times and rose amazing..

Knicks Snap 18-Game Home Losing Streak with Win over Spurs to Avoid NBA History
"Guys. We have a guest here obviously on the shell Pennzoil performance line. And it is oh guy. Our guy Bagley get your bag. Ian, how're you doing? In. My three favorites out there tonight. I'm very excited. Yes. ESPN New York. Knicks reporter also does the nets and basically holds the upper east coast down in did you know that the Knicks made the Oscars they pretty much won an Oscar did you notice this? Yeah. We got wind of it on social media after the game. And we asked a couple of players about if they hadn't seen a year for too excited to just see the clip Samuel Jackson, and Spike Lee. Not every not every year that the Knicks could have mentioned on the Oscars deserves rightfully so. Because the Knicks would at home first time that happened since December one twenty eight and I'm talking about last year folks, twenty we're everywhere. Number one two thousand eighteen they won. They beat the Spurs one thirty one eighteen and I even saw the icing on the cake who threw off the backboard pass for the dunk like it was just wild. How important Dennis Smith? Well, of course, it makes sense. Usually he's on the other end of the dunk rape. How does this when in Madison Square Garden me? What was the field? Was it like a sign of relief for coach physio it felt like a weight off everybody's shoulders, you know, coach FitzGerald would tell us that they don't think about it. They don't talk about it. But then the players afterward joking around the locker room, it just felt like a much later lock home. Now, they knew about they were one loss away from Batasuna longest losing streak ninety history set in ninety three ninety four by the Dallas Mavericks. They know that they have the longest losing streak in franchise history. This so they're aware of those numbers. They don't want to be a part of that history. Tonight, especially the team like the city until you're Spurs. It's not easy, especially for this. And we've got a twenty two games left would throw out the record. We know where we know where we are twelve hundred forty eight what should be the goals over the next six weeks here with this team wanna see consistency. I think so Kevin Knox. You'd wanna see what Frank ntilikina as you're still trying to answer that question. You know, one one and a half almost two seasons. Enter France career, he should get healthy at some points to from this point. I think it was the next to kiss him significant minutes trying to answer that question to try to see if he can be elite guard. What did he do off the ball and where he used offensively so between seven and Saint not some consistency. From those guys. I think the next like what they've seen recently from young player in literal Robinson who who's really played well, especially since the Andre Jordan has come over from Dallas Jordan has done a good job mentoring. Mitch robinson. So I think it's it's the young players on your team and being able to project them forward who is a keeper who can you pencil in for next year? And who do you think won't be around piggybacking off your point there? What's the the Knicks recruiting pitch this summer? You know, who they Bill that around is it around, you know, playing with somebody like Dennis Smith. Knox. Or like what how does that play out? Jordan because you have the two max slots. Pitches almost hey, come come here and tell us who you wanna play with right twenty nine hundred she class, we get that you wanna play with and Kevin Durant. Also simple. You want to change the narrative around. Golden State to win those titles. You come here. And you have success in New York you wanna title in New York. I mean, that's a forever thing doesn't staffers outside of Madison Square Garden and no one. We'll talk about how joined that Golden State to win your earlier title simple message. Anybody else? It's tell us who you wanna play with. We'll try to bring that guy in. That's the voice of in Begley are ESPN next report. And that's reporter upper east coast. Reporter you're listening to insiders. I'm Bobby marks Jordan Schultz ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty now. Talking about obviously, the potential free agency this summer. Those are all big question marks largely because of the trade deadline, sending Kristaps Porzingis opening up two slots, but tell me how worried were Knicks fans watching Duke UNC this past week in. Knick fans are still watching the Knicks games. I give them a lot of credit assume most expensive watching every night. So. A big sigh of relief. I think I'm this fanbase when you found out that that sign injury wasn't that serious that he's going to be okay. Because this record twelve weeks at this point. And they're just looking ahead towards the trash and like every other bottom. Feeding MBA franchise. They're looking at nine what you've seen how he can impact their roster. How much he can change the fourteen organization. So, you know, certainly everybody around here was relieved when they found that he was okay. The interesting thing so Zion and wherever the Knicks end up in the draft in the top three. They hope is could that pick then help them creed. With the woman's Francis us, I think that's something. That's that's certainly on the fan bases minded. I'm sure the front office is thinking about different permutations packages. They could put together including that twenty nine team first round pick to try to entice New Orleans Detroit. And before we let you go. What do you think Zion playing in Madison Square Garden would look like do you think it would be just the new coming up LeBron or even even bigger based on his highlights in his dunking ability. I remember the Jeremy Lin Ron and how much energy was in the building night in and night out. How much of the event every home game was your masters. I think it would be just like that. But even more so sign Williamson was here. Because you know, he getting the franchise all three player people talk about him as a prospect the same way, they talks about Davis to bring that kind of talent into this building would give this reasons for optimism something they haven't had in a long time around here in. I look forward to our shared slice of pizza. I know we've been pushing off that day for a long time. He's been the best pizza apparently in New York. But before we let you go last, but not least we have awards given out for the MBA insiders and honors of aren't Oscars. Have you been watching the Oscars tonight? Because I've been at the. Is your feed though, you saw here. A little bit here and there, okay? This has been a Mahershala Ali love fest on the show, but we actually have awards given out today on MBA insiders throughout the course of the night. I want to get your vote for the last category that we're trying to push best leading man. Are you ready for this vote pleased? The nominees are Janta Takubo of the box. PG thirteen Paul George of the thunder James harden of the rockets and Kawhi Leonard of the raptors who is your best leading man right now. I would go right now with John giving Milwaukee's records they're standing in the conference in the role that he plays on that team. I think he's most deserving of that honor at the moment all of Georgia's a close second. Given what he's done for the thunder

"Just skip from carrots carrots. Hey, he really does by Szekely. He's amazing in that. I generally think he deserves an Oscar nomination in split that year for his performance, and it could have been for supporting actor supporting actress because how spit personalities you guys into any one of you wouldn't have an argument with and he carries that character into this film. Now, this is setting I'm breakable universe. Bruce's characters in this film is David Domigo Samuel Jackson being allies. You're in this as well. So basically, what was happened is twenty as has happened since the events of unbreakable, Bruce, Willis character is roaming, the streets being vigilant defender who is. Breakable but water is he's kryptonite as we've known from the first film. Samuel Jackson has been in a care home sedated for a very long time dot is actually how long for and basically Samuel Jackson happens to stumble upon joins mcelroy's character who unfortunately, he's spoiled a he's a good guy. And I end up inside this K, high mold together, basically believe they're crazy. And m not chef was trying to tighter line between all day, superheroes. All if you convince someone enough would I be able to perform the extraordinary. So if you tell Bruce Willis that he is strong strong strong strong. Woody have the stripe to knock over a door. If he's life depended on it. There's an argument to say, yes, you know, you hear those stories about a mother who lifts a car over popular child. All that sort of stuff it tries to pull on those emotions not a first third of this. Film is amazing that the idea of giants mcelroy's echoes them to hold the name of his. Multiple personalities coming together against Bruce Willis carrots, if the first time brilliant spell bonding sets up a promise that there's going to be a clash and tension of two massive lightens in a way, which you had no idea it was coming, and you have no idea how it's going to conclude. The second act is with them own inside this care home. Now, the third act where I believe the film goes absolutely off the riles terrible is when it tries to set a promise of this big conflict between Samuel Jackson, James, mcelroy's character, and Bruce Willis character. And again during 'em non Shabalin trying speed a man with the twist the man who will as banks I would dead along national sport that. And tries to screw if you and as a result of that film is much worse off that furred act is terrible. Oh, that's very disappointing. Because I I saw excited about this. Because I do think I'm breakable underrated movie. So how'd you suggest I watch this first? And then forget the rest of it exists. I suggest what shit, but have high hopes split is a great film. And yeah. Yeah. I should've just stops there to be honest joins macaroni is absolutely incredible Innis. Hey, carries on that form since this film. He everyone if he's twenty characters has a moment to show, I believe, and and he switches between him so well, there's a scene where basically what he's in the nut house. They found a way of suppressing one of these personalities, basically, if he has a life flashed at him at high intensity that will make a personality subside at another person is will come now when they're trying to interview him, and actually I should give shouts out. So the Serra Poston she plays a character Nisus, basically in charge of the the care home. She's trying to find out what makes joins macaroni character tick. And there's a saying where he basically jumps from character to character. His body language changes. He go hedge for this road. Because one of his personalities is called the beast, which is basically the suit what he believes to be to superhuman elements of his character is literally a. Sting person climbs up woes eight people is the one in the trail of the one in the try and run.

Glass review – M Night Shyamalan's superheroes assemble
"The first movie we were going to talk about is glass by m night Shyamalan. This is the third movie in the kind of unpredictable and almost unnecessary trilogy of unbreakable split. And now glass nineteen years in the making nineteen. Years. I don't know you pay you pay fast loose with like in the making conversation. This was always my dear. Yeah. Very true. But this movie we get James McEvoy returning as a bunch of people, aka the hord. We get Bruce Bilas returning his David Dunn Samuel Jackson as a laser price, aka Mr. glass on your Taylor joy from split. It's Casey Kook coke says has to os Kook, I guess cook. What am I talking about? Why so weird cook? Anyway, I am I the past couple of days off, it it is it is a mess, sir. Paulsen as Dr L E staple and then a bunch of random people. So the premise of glass, and this is one of those films that I'm going to preface with if you want to see this movie avoid every single trailer because the trailers literally give everything away the only thing that trailers, the only thing that trailers do not show are, of course, his signature your pseudo twist at the end, but what you see in the trailer. Like there is. I mean, yes, there is more to the movie, but as far as the beats UCLA lot of those trailers. I mean, he's not doing the thing that we're used to seeing another movie, which is like you're moving things around in the trailer. So you don't really get rhythm problem film goes this is pretty much. This is how the film's going to go. Yeah.

But in the first one there's that great scene when he's trying to buy the piece of art from Mr. glass, and he says, this is for my son, and he's like get the fuck out of my store now. Yeah. That is awesome. He slaps him down. And Sara Poulsen kind of represents that to where she's supposed to be the personify. Nation of the pretentious, intellectual who feels that comic.

I'm not you read comics as a kid like all, right? You don't have to be too in your face about it. It is kept going back and back. All you need is one or two references. Well, I'm nights not very subtle. Now, anything explain the ending somebody's fighting back against these people that just feel the need to always talk down about comic books. I mean, you see an article every day. We're Jane's gone. I remember he was the one who came out and said, I if if you think we're stupid that just come out and say that we're stupid. There's a lot of good too. I mean, I think last Samuel Jackson was great. Here's the best as soon as glass started McEvoy and Samuel Jackson. Bruce Willis was there because he was a number a couple. He's bad. I don't think he's even a good actor number. I just think Bruce Willis is not a good actor. He always looks like he woke up from a day, nap, you barely talk actually think about barely talking the movie. He doesn't do anything in any movies ever. We six cents spells his best moose Willis as just Bruce Willis. It was funny to see his son same same actor. I get sucked number. I was like, oh, you haven't gotten better as a MAC? The same. Okay, continuity. Yeah. I do like that I appreciated that effort. But it's just Robin writes like I ain't coming back to the ship. They can't really just get out of their own way, this movie can't and. I like I like I like the attempts. You know, do it's not the traditional route they take some chances. And I don't you know, hate that. I know it was funny, but a few funny parts in it. Most of it was like the mcevoy's characters still really fun to wash. He's a great actor yet. Split was really good. I still think oh breakable is my favorite puts split his tip. My cap to him. He was his gluten splits not a comic book movie at all that what's so brilliant about is har-, psychological, thriller also takes place in this universe. And that's a good point that you made. Why are they still trying to develop these characters? We got enough we got movies. Yeah. And now, I figured this one was going to be one where they all meet, you know, and they clash, and they just kept after it was maybe three calls in the movie trying to develop these characters, and what was on your Taylor joy, even doing in this helping trying you know, what you don't have that character in there.

I forgot the movie where if anybody recalls it tell me it's the movie where he takes some girl to be like a like a slave because she was. Say this selling her body will say, okay. So he wants to like teacher a lesson. I don't I've ever really saw the movie with the mean they got from that black snake. Moan lack snake moan. They. Kevin nobody I knew I know the mean you're talking about and there's like a chain. There's a with a Mimi is his is I Samuel Jackson. We all know is is. But he's he's got like the character has a gray and white hair all around, and he's like any looks is our big, and he's looking at you looking crazy. And they said this is the face when you were become a father. This is the face you'll make ninety percent of the day. That is me ninety percent of the volume is our buck there. I'm like, hey that face all well, there will come a point as your daughter transitions getting older a little bit where there will be moments that are completely out of your control. And you just had an off. You're you're just like I do know that tell your wife looked at. I'm excited about that. I'm excited about that. So. On. I do want to give you an update on the pole for those cases. Now, what is going on? You have a poll going on about the dynamic of game seven of the National League championship series versus LeBron's Staples debut. Okay. So the poll right now as we speak thirty six percent of people saying they are more excited for the Brandon Lakers. Lebron staple center debut, right? Sixty four percent now are saying they're more excited for the dodgers force game seven. Well, let me ask you this even though it favors the dodgers. How is it that thirty six? I'm not gonna lie saying that game two of an eighty two game regular season is more significant than game seven in the National League championship. I'm not gonna lie. I'm with you that I thought it would be more twenty percent. I I knew it'd be a decent percent. But I didn't think it will be thirty six. So I'll keep you updated. Maybe every hour. So I'll check back in. All right. How can they get this poll where they live K D U BB L I V E? We and we just re tweeted if you follow Fox Sports radio weei. Just re tweeted very good get in on that poll. I wanted to mention you know, you know, when you when you have somebody that has done a job for a long long time usually toward the end of their career. There's a certain reverence, you know, you sort of appreciate wow, this guy. This individual has been around a long time. And the only reason they've been around. A long time as they've done a great job. And and there's just a certain reverence future hall of Famer, you know, let's let's enjoy these final years while we still have them around. That is true for just about everybody in every line of work except one and his name is Joe west. Oh boy. The major league baseball umpire let let me put his his career as a major league umpire into context. Joe west umpire his first major league baseball game. When Gerald Ford was still president. This is nine hundred seventy six he is actually umpired in more seasons. Forty then any umpire in the history of baseball. In fact, he just passed Bruce Froemming for the second most games ever unpire d- in the history of baseball guiding Bill Klem from the early twentieth century is number one on the all time list. So you would think when you've done this job as long as he has and your name is at the top or near top. Listen, all these longevity records that you would be held in reverence in twenty eleven they did a poll of major league baseball players asking who is the best umpire and who is the worst five percent. Five percent said Joe west was the best umpire in baseball. They only say that. Because that's the only name they think, right. In the same poll. Forty six percent said he was the worst empire and baseball. They did an updated poll he was voted the second worst umpire in baseball. Now under trying to figure out how Joe west is still allowed to unpire baseball games when he's been universally recognized is if not the worst one of the worst on a very short list of on Pires in all of baseball year after year, and it was on full display with that Mukhi bets. I'll to play. So he's working the right field line. Joe west gets a wrong every time. Again, could Mookie Betts have made the catch had his globe not gone into the stance. The answers. Maybe I mean, he's Mukhi bats me just to get his glove up that high shows the amazing athleticism. But that wasn't a question the rule states that. Once the ball clears the wall, it's up for grabs. If a fan reaches over the wall. The kid what was his name Jeffrey. Remember the Yankee Oriole game that was over the wall. If he reaches over the wall that's interference. But once the balls over the wall, it's up for grabs and Joe s got the call wrong. And then they want to replay. Did you watch? This did the announcers are like that was clearly a homerun, you know, great opera by bets, but that was clear and he comes out of it out. I'm like, I don't even know maybe the replay had a reverse. And he's still said now, I'm not gonna get overturned on this one. I'm cowboy Joe west. Okay. The only thing I can think of in that instance, if he did he by chance or get rule. Because I believe it's a major league. Personally, Mookie Betts would have caught it. But if the rule states, hey, it's fair game that far into this. You know? That it's fair game. Then he has to go with that and less again, remember, I will say, and I don't like Joe west is are there. But the idea that it has to be you have to confirm it has to be substantial evidence we have to know without a shadow of doubt. Otherwise, you have to call it as it stands, and he called it a out and the has to stand because maybe he just didn't see enough evidence. I mean, I don't know what ever the announcers the ball was over by the way, Joe west. Did you see the other earlier game in the playoffs? He had this play. It was a it was a play at second base on. There was an attempted steel. And he is the second base umpire and the throw from the catcher hits them right in the chest. Now, first of all forget the fact that he couldn't get his large body out of the way a lot about any name seem to notice the ball was actually about the hit him. But then I was thinking about the play. We'll even if the ball had gotten a second base. Why are you standing ten feet in front of the back? How would you have even made a call safer out at second base based on where you actually standing my point is these unpire have way too much guaranteed longevity. That's not the supreme court a gay. This is baseball umpiring. If a guy is not getting the job done if the players are recognized. I think players should have a pretty good idea because they don't condemn all umpires. Right. There on buyers in fact, anything if I was a player. I welcome good empires. I mean, I applaud guys you know, have a good strike zone. And I I know where I stand you're getting the job done. What if you are consistently voted the worst or near the bottom? How are you? Still how are you still guaranteed? A job is strange because if it any other profession, let's go the opposite of what you're saying. If you're the worst, your let go, you know, if you or I or collectively were the worst you get let go if somebody's been the worst day. They definitely don't keep their jobs. So why is baseball hell bent on keeping him? I'll give you an example, though, where it seems very similar how ends badly and left a bad taste and everyone's mouth in the NBA. Joey crawford. Yes. Where all those years. He was a he was a ref. I mean years upon years he was the most known referee. And then all of a sudden last five six seven years, you're like this guy starting to lose it. It's calling terrible. 'cause kicking Tim Duncan. Tim Duncan sitting on the bench talking about something. I where you get a burrito tonight out get out. Checked for what? And I think that's the same thing's going to happen to Joe west where I don't know if it's ego walks to do it's ego. It's I'm right. It's never been changing. And I think we saw that. I think it exonerate examples is Joey Crawford where it just. Yeah. You were once a good ref and clearly everyone, you know, thought you great. That's why you had your job. But the NBA is just like all right. We gotta let this guy. Go. I. Great analogy. Great. And I think we're gonna see that we're in the guy go Fox Sports radio studios. There is a new team trending as the best in the NFL. We're going to get to that. But right now, what's trending Ralph Ervin knows Ralph..

"To be unsealed today. It's going to happen from what I've heard it's going to happen this morning, probably around like the end of the show. So I don't think we're going to actually be able to get into it on today's show tomorrow gonna talk to Billy grant who was Doug wardlow campaign manager. And obviously, we'll we'll all have had plenty of time, including the media to see if there's anything salacious in these divorce records, and you tweeted out a couple of things yesterday in regards to this. And some of the some of the rationale that Kim Ellison was giving about not releasing these talking about exposing. It was like it was like she she didn't want to have her history with like depression exposed. But yet it saying that she exposed her history of depression. I know it seems so. I mean, you know, of course, I'm coming out this from a from a place of pretty extreme bias against he's a horrible person freely. He is you totally right. Terrible. Terrible. Attorney general desperately do not want him to win. But if your argument is that you don't want, you know, you want you want certain aspects of the divorce records to remain sealed because of your history of depression, your history of mental health issues yet, you know, you're giving a press conference talking about those issues. What's in the file that you're not already disclosing? Nobody's going after Kim Ellison here. Right. Nobody nobody who has an interest in. What's in these divorce? Records is doing it under the oh, we're going to get Kim Nelson. We're gonna we're gonna drag her through. But no has nothing to do with her. It has everything to do with Keith Ellison has everything to do with his character is everything to do with his history of having abuse allegations made against him from spouses, and and and that's that's what people are looking for. So I if I'm Kim Nelson. You know, I'm I don't worry. Nobody's coming after you my. My theory is that once it's open. This is easy in easy to make once these records are open then all of the answer. Larry comments leading up to it are going to make sense. Like once we see what's in it. We're going to go. Oh, okay. That's why she said this. Okay. That's why he said that. I think that this is they're setting the stage for whatever gets revealed. The biggest thing for me is that something is going to get revealed. We just don't know what it is yet based off of. We've got the answer before we know what the question is j Keith Ellison is clearly nervous. Yeah. Number five, a majority of Americans say that they oppose celebrities getting involved in politics. Like all the things that Democrats are doing the Americans. Don't like amazed. Incredible from the hell majority of American voters say that they oppose celebrities giving political endorsements. That's according to a new American barometer survey the poll conducted by the hill dot dot or I'm sorry by Hilda TV and the Harris ex polling company found that sixty percent of respondents said that they opposed celebrities giving political endorsements because they polarized public opinion and distract from the important issues of the day. Forty percent of respondents said that they support celebrities giving endorsements because they spread awareness and engage people to vote. The Paul also showed a partisan divide on the issue with eighty percent of Republicans polled saying that they oppose the endorsements and forty three percent of Democrats saying the same twenty percent of Republicans said they were in favor of celebrity endorsements while fifty seven percent of Democrats also said that they supported the endorsements. Well, Republicans have been skeptical of Hollywood's involvement in politics, President Trump and former President Reagan were involved in the entertainment industry before they entered politics. This Paul Kim's Russia, you know. The poll came roughly a week after museum musicians, Kanye west and Taylor swift made waves in the political arena. I think that that, you know, the the the Khania situations really interesting from a from a lot of different angles that we won't get into right now that and a lot of that we've already talked about. But the fact that that Kanye, and this was again more courtesy of Kansas Owens who tweeted this out. You know, Taylor swift was asking people do who to vote for in Konya was was doing sort of the keep an open mind. He was being the quintessential example of an individual who was actually looking for looking at both sides and for a long time has been doing that. I would agree with that. And I think the left is very fearful either on a on a subconscious on a conscious level of celebrities actually, doing what did I mean, actually being genuine and authentic Connie was being genuine and authentic. That's not to say, I don't think Taylor swift was. But the difference is Connie as saying, you know, think for yourself while Taylor saying go and vote for somebody. Nobody believes these celebrities, and that's part of the that's that's the reason why if if the majority of if. The majority of celebrities were Republicans. I have no doubt that Republicans will be doing exactly the same thing. The Democrats are doing, but that's not the case. And be that as it may. You can have your Robert Danny juniors. Your your hoax, whatever go out there. And talk about everybody. Go vote doesn't matter. What side you're on? We all know they're full of it. Yeah. We all know the day. We all notes joke. Yeah. At some point though. I would you know. There should be some conversation about, you know, the these like in-kind contributions to a political party because they really are. They really are. And and and you know, media can get dinged for that. But for some reason celebrities get an absolute pass, there's a story in the in the city pages and talking about Samuel Jackson is out there in an ad scooping. Poop for Angie, Craig. This is N G Craig's zig kitty commode. So we're in the article it says that he's part of this particular swing left grassroots movement. It's an organization he basically eat he's given to the organization, but he put himself on a list. So the organization can just Jews. Samuel Jackson doesn't care about the Jason Lewis, Angie. Craig? No. Of course. Who who who who is this person is it is Angie, Craig not crock? Right. Okay. So he has no idea. Excellent job. Sam stellar top five. And thank you too early.

"So it's going to be down to Samuel Jackson to bring the personality agent Colson to bring the humor. You know what? I never even thought about that. I say, excellent point. So you say in that he that send you Jack, is going to bring the drama, are you know, you know what he does. He's he, he's drama, but there's always at tinge of humor there and Colston's going to be more the more the comic relief, which is cool. He's like the fuck. I am series. You can't even though we call some being younger, what I would love to see within see, this is cool about going back in time with this movie. It's just not about captain marble. They should be able to show you. Some other things happened right here. Again, not only fear is backstory, but let's see more of agent Colson being a bad as they can't. These marble shorts that came out and one of them showed because a lot of people asking what the fuck does call do. They showed him in net the net in short where he was taken out a whole like a couple of robbers in a convenience store, and he was he was truly bad as you get to see him be more that s on on agents of shield. Okay. Because he's a leader of the team and he actually, he actually does some some cool shit on that show, but I believe here he's a rookie agent. Okay. So he's set up for this is going to be fun. Yeah. I mean, there's going to be maybe we don't know what's gonna, be great enough, but I think they have the potential to make a lot of things spun in this time. Travel's always fun anyway, going back. Going back in time to that point. Would you talk about, you know, we're seeing more these guys. We're also getting Ronan the accuser and giant hunt. Sue is I forgot his name that korva core wrath, the pursuer who in gardens, we've really got to see them hunts who gets taken out early and and Ronin got the tag of being, oh, he's he's a terrible villain. But here you see more them expanded, so it's a chance for. So when you go back and watch, guardians, you'd be like, okay, now, see what these guys are really all about. Trying to find a thought. I saw. Yes. Those trying to fire Ronan the accuser in here. Oh, is he not in? Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no, there is. I was trying. I'm sorry, I wasn't. I was listening to you. Yeah, I was trying to trying to scroll through this and there he is right there. Okay. Yeah, that's running the accusers. We met him in gardens, the galaxy. He was saying. And lot of people aren't even if they caught that, but you know, you got that big as John Henry hammer, right? They're kind of hard, not to mistaken. What did this other stills in anything you read about it. What if you, y'all know Rony accuser? It was. I mean, even though he was he was a straight villain. He was still sort of in a comedic tone film this you might get to see you get to see people be different tones in different. Yeah. So he might even pay him what threatening? Yeah, they, he wasn't at film, no doubt you'd better not handle dance off with. Captain marvel movie. Got at this time. Beat me again. Daddy. Yeah, but it's a frequent man on. Get fun. He'll be doing running, maybe came back in time to dance. I guess. We get to see him practice, dance dance. I think that they are doing a good job with the cosmic elements in here in the doing a good job of making the cosmic elements have sort of earthy feel to it because you look at this because they've gone really, they've gone out there with not only guardians, but now the doors on psychedelic drugs. It's funny the time they guardians, it seemed like such a fluke to go like, man, we've been doing everything around earth and a little bit on s..
