All Right Levin now you grew up in Chattanooga Tennessee. During Jim Crow Air. So you know something about voter suppression what are the parallels that you're seeing between what was and what is happening today? Well the what was is just you know people's physical presence in intimidating people when they wanted to go and vote and. and now the media presence and how prevalent the misinformation is about voting the spread of distrust of the systems that we have trusted for. So long like the postal system the threat of people patrolling the polls when people go to vote And craziness like and I don't know who bold enough to go in the ball when hills and and and set. A. Voter box on buyer. Really. Critic Great Yeah. This crazy stuff going on all over the place but The there with the election only a few days away. There has been a record high early voter voter turnout, which I think is a good thing. Are. You Feeling Optimistic Sam. Feel optimistic and I want to be optimistic but. The latter. So I know how you know things change and what what disappointment feels like and I know the the desperation of the. Candidate this time also and how crazy and how. Much. Divide has grown. In a way I was reading this thing this morning about you know last time that was like a seven seven percent divided among households or people who friends, and now does a forty percent in divide. Among people who people unfriendly people beland that's being a baby will be getting divorced. People are moving out of the houses because they disagree politically. And that hasn't been the case before So it's it's it's one of those things where it's up in the air and we heard last time with the polls were and the poll said this the poll said that and the more I sat at home and watch and started to remember the Electoral College more disappointed that gap. And the more upset I got and I'm trying not to. Get as physically. Involved personally in that particular aspect of it this time. So I'm going to try and distract myself you know on on Tuesday. Well president trump is fond of saying that he's done more for the black community than any president since Abraham Lincoln and his son-in-law Jared Kushner said this week about the black community that trump quote can't want them to be successful more than they want to be successful. What do you make these types of comments? Coming out of this administration, Sam. I about I can't take a lot that jared Kushner says seriously I mean he is jared Kushner. Right. So why should we? Listen to what he has to say especially. How many how many people you really think he's he knows or talks to on a regular basis. So he can understand that So that's not something that I. Take. In the administration is the administration we know who they are. We know how they feel about the black community and they they said a lot of things about what they've done, what they haven't done and we can see evidence of that by the number of. Black people that are in the administration and what they do particularly for Black Minniti so such takes. Sam You have to come back and talk to us and what maybe come after the election and we'll have. Another discussion about. But do come back because we.

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.

"Hoped to. To do that in March, but because of covid pandemic, they could not empanel a grand jury. They're hoping that that can be done by June July at some point Anderson. We have reached out to the Williamson County Sheriff's department and have not heard back today but in documents filed with the state, Attorney General's Office the Williamson County Sheriff's. Department said that With their office of professional standards found that quote after reviewing video evidence, ps concluded the primary and assisting deputies acted in accordance with the guidelines of the sheriff's department and US quote objective reasonableness on on the level of force us in that incident Anderson. I appreciate it. Join me now, Johnston, the former Missouri Highway Patrol. Captain, who is applauded for the people? He led police response to the riots in Ferguson Missouri six years ago in the demonstrations there Kevin. Johnson thanks so much for being with us. Can you just walk us through? It's very easy to look at something and form opinions about it. And there's obviously multiple moving parts this, but can you walk us through? What protocol is for officers trying to bring somebody into custody? Who may be resisting, but may be in distress as well. Well I think initially you use those tactics that you've been trained onto. One is resisting. Starts at a different level compliance. You're asking him to put it behind his back, but in watching this video is obvious at a certain point. He's in distress. He is not a tipping the five year. He is in distress He's telling you can't breathe and you can hear it in his voice. Can you see in his face? But you see them not taking any action story officer. More so trying to maybe A. Clutch his own chest I mean he's trying to bring his arms in, but not in a aggressive way, so I think we see this and he's definitely in distress was tough to watch I watched it. and. It took me back to what we're saying with Mr Floor, but he's definitely in distress. He tells me about his heart condition, and so you have to begin to take that consideration, and yes, please officers run across a suspect who say say different things, but you have to assess things based on the merit of that moment. I WOULD IMAGINE Some officers watching this would say well. People say all the time. I can't breathe, or you're hurting me. I know how one deals with that in that moment I mean obviously there there must be. I mean. How do you deal with that? You have to you have to assess the situation, but in this gentleman here you can help grasping for air. And so I think if the assessor situation someone's grasping prayer and you can look. You can see the look on his face that he is in distress. When when you hear about when when you know police reform means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. You hear protest protest. You're talking about de-fund, please. I'm wondering what what do you think about that? de-fund police idea and also when you think about police reform what what reforms that can be made short term and even long-term. defunding police I take that as let's just make sure we're looking at budgets and make sure that the improperly funded that if there's things there that we can move around to another. Another agency that we need to look at that, but we may look at it. Department is saying that they're underfunded. We may say that they're exactly funded, but but most people that are saying to fund a police are saying. Get rid of the police, but you know school budgets, most governmental budgets. They're looked at to see if there's money, there should be moved around our fishing day. And so I think that's proper and I think for police department while we're trying to. Two men are ways with communities nation. That would be a way to do it to say. Yes, look at us if we can help with our budget to make our communities in our country better. Why wouldn't we? And, so we started talking about police reform is about training. We have to make sure that is correct that we're giving everybody a seat at the table and we're listening to the people that are in our communities specially in our African American communities, not that we're giving them answers. We need to listen to them and let them give us the solution that they see. On implementing those. Ron Johnson. I appreciate your time tonight. Thank you very much. Thank you very much Anderson. Just had his George Floyd remembered someone who attended a funeral Dr Martin Luther King Junior and also marched in Memphis in nineteen, sixty eight Samuel L. Jackson join US talk by the outpouring of grief as well as the protests then and now when we return..

"Even if the demonstrations continue in history continues to be ridden two weeks after Mr. Floyd's life was taken see an insider is outside the church in Houston right now. Sir, you just talk about what what you have seen there all day, and and what's going to be happening into the night? There have been hundreds if not thousands of people who have come to this church to pay their respects to George Floyd. I did personally pay my own. Wasn't expecting there to be an open casket, but there was everyone that came up got a few seconds to pray in front of the casket in which George. Floyd's body lays in A. Waiting to be buried, and one after the other people came up some with tears in their eyes, some with their children in tow all of them, believing that this is a moment in history that they need to be a part of but more importantly. They need to be here to show the family that they are with them, and they feel sorrow for what happened to George, Floyd, but everyone that we. We spoke to in the crowd of mothers and fathers, grandparents, uncles, and aunts, all here to to recognize what George Floyd means to the particularly to the African American community They said that this really felt was a turning point, and they were here to make sure that the turning point actually did happen to show their solidarity with the Floyd Family saying that there has to be changed between the relationship. With police officers and the black community something that they hope will happen after this and believe will happen after this, we also heard from the governor who was very very strong and saying the same thing, but this is a moment that this is going to change America. As he put it we also saw the police chief here from Houston. He made sure to go in and pay his respects. He was the first chief. Chief that we saw to publicly denounced the officers who were involved especially officer Shobin who was involved in putting his knee on George Floyd's neck, and pressing down for more than seven minutes and fifty four seconds, as we counted in the video, and so there was a lot of outpouring, hoping that they can show their respects while at the same time hoping to press for change in the relationship between police and the black community.

Two weeks since the killing of George Floyd, protesters continue to fill the streets peacefully, demanding changes in the way, the police in works in this country changes that go beyond policing changes to address systematic inequalities that have existed for too long.

The president has called the family, but as yet to meet with them or address the kind of systematic issues being raised by protesters, the president spent time today meeting with law enforcement officials. He's clearly hoping to make A. A campaign issue out of the some of the protesters calls for defunding the police. Meantime. Another incident is getting attention Another man killed on camera by police. As he uttered the words, I can't breathe. His name was heavier ambler. He's killed north of downtown Austin.

This is twenty five years ago in nineteen ninety four was the big breakthrough. He done some movies, of course with Spike Lee before that. But it was Pulp Fiction that cemented him as a star. And by the way, about six months, later, die hard with vengeance came out and that launched him as a box office. Stars. Well, something, Bruce, Willis told him would happen before it did Sam Jackson tells that story as you'll hear in just a bit also guy who's had well, you know, forty five years old, there's a lot of life before that. And so he grew up in the segregated south and Chattanooga. Tennessee came from a broken home, his grandparents raised him along with his aunt. He talks about the impact. They had on his life, and why he was steered into acting his latest project is shaft, remember, he did a shaft movie about nineteen years ago. Now, he's back reviving that role inspired, of course, by the original shaft of the nineteen seventies, Mr Richard Roundtree, who's appearing in this new version of the movie as well, a great conversation with a great guy paint the picture for you were in an empty Tribeca New York steakhouse, the two of us Sam Jackson in a blue suit and a matching blue kangol wearing white sneakers, what I'm wearing immaterial. This is all about Sam Jackson, right? Now on the Sunday sit down podcast Sam, thanks for doing this. I know how busy are beating the bushes for this movie to see it. I don't think that's going to be a problem. I told you I just saw it. It's funny. It's it has all that spirit of shaft in it from eighteen seventy one, but it's been up dated, and I think there's a new generation that's about to see chef for the first time because your last one was almost twenty years ago. That's true. So what does that feel like to introduce this character people now who's been around for the rest of us for so long? I like to think that there's an audience that knows about it kind of in the back of their minds. They just didn't know that they did. Because advocates music is classic. Yeah. Kind of like when you hear that music, everybody knows what it is. You You know. know, and their parents played somewhere, maybe they wanted to other films. Maybe they didn't see my maybe did see my, but the have a kid, like Jesse that they identify with a very real kind of way it's gonna help, and he's sort of the technological shaft to my analog. Well, that's the bunny thing over those twenty years, or even farther almost fifty years, the original, he actually hasn't changed that much through the years. I mean I mean. Well, you say he. Well, you're the aids specifically. Sure when they brought me in that Richard was. Right. Right. Right. No, that's it. I mean, yes, but the linear of the of the legend, he is the the original myth maker. He's the guy who was the sexy for all the chicks. Really great leather clothes, and, you know, the rainforest brother man who had everybody's back he was, but his spirit lives on in your mind. So by the time I got to do mine, and we had a minute, I was able to be in angrier and more aggressive. Yes. Chef for the change of the century, right? Right. Also, I had more issues. And now this one. It's interesting enough was not around me and his mom thought I was a little, too dangerous, though. She took him away from me, raise, the Minnesota burbs cinema MIT. Now, he's Nepi is, but he needs my help. So when he comes that I have to kinda show him what it means to be a member of this particular family. And what it means to the community in general, and they try to drag you into the twenty first century your views of the world, things like that. And what part of why love the movie is because by the end you think there's going to be this moment, where he sort of realizes his old ways, and he's got to move forward with. No right up until the closing credits of the movie, he's still shaft Okay, me. me drawing pictures on the wall. That's right. So how do you decide when, when it's a good time to go back to a project like that, like something you've done before what was the script the director was something that told you I want to do this now, thought it was a fresh take on what's been happening with their after always been a thriller. And gritty cram dramas. And when I was approached with it said they wanted to make a comedy straight ahead comedy. I don't think I sign off of that. What do you want wanted to be? Well, it needs to be action comedy. If there's gotta be anything. You can have comedy, but you have to have an element of danger, that's very real. That's offense. So when audiences watching it, they can laugh Tanna time but also know that omega this toxic. So hopefully, we manage to make that, you know mix. You did you did, and those shootout scenes or no joke. And there are a lot of them. There's your action right there. I'm I'm a huge fan of bullet ballets. Watch them with John. Woo. The good euphemism. I like that. And you know, you mentioned Richard Roundtree. This isn't exactly a cameo. He's got like a good important part at the end junky. It takes all three of us to make this thing happen. What did he tell you the first time you came back to play chef nineteen or so years ago about the character, what did you need to know about him? I need to know anything about him. I was I was I was really more concerned when I was doing mind about when it was going to be my opportunity to be a sex machine for chicks. And John kept telling me, don't worry, it's going to have. Wait. When's it gonna have Richard was just laughing? Because as soon as they brought him onscreen, they handed him to win and he walks in with the best MAC. Really? We know he's too sexy guy. I'm the angry. No. But he's, he's the quiet in the storm all kind of stuff is chaos. Onset Richardson sitting on the side, smoking Seger Jilin waiting on waiting on call. His name get getting. He doesn't know he just walked in when it says moments smooth Ega. So what does it feel like for you on the eve of a movie where like three days right now, from the release as we sit here talking, you've had so many big hit so much success? You still get like nerves thinking about how people are going to react to do this point. Right. Here's how the people of marketing the film. Yeah, I'm out here doing my part, but the marketing departments got to do their part. They got to convince people that they wanna see I see billboards to kind of nice. Bingo billboards guys in these really nice coat. It's outta my hands. I've done everything. I'm supposed to do in, hopefully, if people spend their money to go into the theater, they will see that. I did my job on hopefully. I'm entertaining them making them having a Megan laugh mega mismile making. I do all the things that I had to do hopefully wish for the best that it works out like most of the other films that done enjoyable. I don't poplar move. Yeah, I have a thing about going to movies in leaving the world that we live in not having to think about what's on the front page of the newspapers or who won the game that they just go in lose yourself in this world for little while and laugh cry. You know, s some fun come out in safe out. That was it was good. I won't people smiling having fun. When the movie on wake up the next day, I got some text from our friends, they woke up the next day thinking about mad. I just thought about that scene in the movie eleven thank you. That's what you want sticks with them. That's what you want. Yeah. Well, I mean you know this probably better than you'd like to know by now but you've had a lot of those successes where you have the title now is the actor whose movies have made more. Than anyone in the history of Hollywood. A lot of people. It's well yeah let's like fifteen billion dollars worldwide. Does that number mean anything to you, it means I did a lot of movies that people liked or a lot of people went to see the movie that I was in, or I made a, a good choice of a franchise to stay part of that? I enjoy myself, and I'm glad that a lot of people enjoyed them also nothing to do with you, though. Come on, you're in all those movies. It's not just franchise. I was. Star Wars stored. Yes, I would have been starting wars without me. You know, fortunately, I had an interesting part in it, and I had a great character that was great Jurassic Park was arrested part, or would have been dressy part without me saying hold onto you. But, but hey I said it people say is on the teaser, I own it. And being part of the marvel universe come on, you know, hard to beat that. And to be a character that has such a dominant place in the series. In terms of we is to those superheroes guy without powers who can wheel so much power over. Those guys do have powers and being able to inhabit it and embodied at embrace it in a real count away and just love it. Those kind of things that drained about when I was a kid of being that superhero, or a superhero, somebody will Kate or somebody with some powers, somebody who do this other being forced into enough to be in a franchise that has those kinds of characters in it, and allows me to watch myself, do things that I thought I would do when I was a kid even movie like criminals in frozen. Awesome. It is. Can't beat it. So I've been very fortunate. And I understand that. And I know that, that number it means something, but a lot of other people who in some of those movies, they can add those same numbers, two their names to because as long as you're into credits, you can say that, right? So it's not like I was driving those films. I was in some films that were driven by a popular opinion that allowed a lot of people to come see them, and I was fortunate enough to be there. Are you made them better? How about that? I'll just give you I'll take you take that you talked about marvel cinematic universe. I told you before we started talking Bree Larson. We're talking about you. And man, she talks about you. I think she called you her Yoda, this wise Mandic that always knew the answer, always do the right thing to do whose, instincts were so good. I was reading something Scarlett Johansson said about you along those similar lines. And is that nice to hear that people?.

John Singleton, Director And Janet Jackson discussed on Lori and Julia
"You know, yesterday, we knew that John singleton family was taking him off of life support. And of course, he is the director filmmaker first movie kind of his like a Cinderella story with his first success in Hollywood. And we'll let I think this use the today show audio really doesn't. His life all of those rare films both reflected and defined the times nineteen Ninety-one boys in the hood about three teenagers growing up during the drug and gang violence in south central LA, the movie critical and commercial hit giving a twenty minute standing ovation at the canned film festival. It's director John singleton who twenty four became the youngest and the first African American to be Oscar nominated for best director and best original screenplay. I think that I came along at the right time and moment in history. Singleton died Monday at fifty one his family taking him off life support. After suffering a stroke earlier this month this morning tributes pouring in for the groundbreaking director producer and screenwriter actor Samuel Jackson tweeting overnight he believes the trail for many young filmmakers rest in peace. Brother, gone way too soon. Janet Jackson posting you gave. Me my first movie role, my first Oscar nomination and so much more. I will miss you. John. Oh, and she was she was so great. That was I don't know if you ever saw that you might have your first baby Justice. Yeah. It was a good movie. And like here's a lot of like so boys in the hood. Not only had basically gave Cuba Gooding junior junior ice cube put them on the map. But Angela Bassett was in that movie. Lawrence Fishman Morris, chestnut, Regina king NIA long. And he. It was such a huge huge success because he wrote the screenplay and directed it. And he was so young. And right. You know, I think Spike Lee might have been like one of his instructors at UC at film school like that he took a that's how those two cross pair. But he he has production company new deal entertainment became the training ground, basically for young black executives and an obligatory. Stop for black music stars who wanted to have an acting career. So. That's how is cube ended up there right pack, and you know, I just didn't I didn't know really that much about him to be honest. This morning to access Hollywood and one of the young men on their talked about that got Evans. Yes. Got it. He just talked about how he remembers how impactful it was the first time. He's not boys in the hood hearing, people seem both spilling. They spoke in the neighborhood and black community. Yeah. And he had black storytelling that had never been told her before cinema, Shannon late and black narratives in the nineties, and they just needed that pioneering voice because it wasn't inclusive at all, and and just everything that he did and how well loved he was by everyone, and how family oriented, and I mean, he MARTINI and a green light for three movies in five years by the age of twenty six at Columbia, which at the time the studio chief was stewed by the name of Frank price who is a political conservative, but he believes strongly in John singleton's talent and family oriented social messaging was behind him. And then down way down the road in two thousand and five for the movie, hustle and flow. John singleton was the reason why that movie got made. And of course, you know. That's how tries you Henson was first you nominated, but you know, it took a long time even after that for her to be recognized all of that. But anyway and boys in the hood was registered with the national film registry. In two thousand and two as a significant piece of art and. He was directing all kinds of TV shows.

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.

"And we have some very very sad news, of course, to wrap up the new section on. It is the death of Luke Perry. Yeah. I don't fifty two years old, which is incredibly young he'd had a stroke last week. So he he was surrounded by family when he died this week, but it was a real blow because for an entire generation of you know, man fund seeing persons. He was just a gold in the nineties as as Dylan in nine or two on. He was he was not just the sex. He was also a secretly really nice guy and a very caring person. And and so he was just catnip to to everyone. So, you know, I think he struggles a little to kind of escape from that image in that show, but he was really back on track. Actually, recent you know, he'd been doing work in in Riverdale on TV, which had the brilliant idea of, you know, hiring all these former teen stars to be the parents of its Team Stars. But he was just kind of. Reminder of how good he wasn't how much we liked him in the first place. The tributes poured in this week, and I'll have to say just every single one that I saw had a different story of how kind he was. And what a good person he was on just what a likable and humble guy. So I mean, I think that's a greater testament to him than anything else. He'll be he'll be sadly missed and for young age to go. Now, the one that does springs to mind, Colin Hanks story DC. Run a flight together in Kulla Hanks was in coach which I think also is very calling hikes thing is very, you know, seems to be a very nice guy who would fly coach when he could as we all know fly first class if he wanted to because he's Colin Hanks and the some kid making a racket in economy, and everyone's at the end of the tether, and suddenly this man emerged in a hat and sunglasses from first-class holding up a balloon and sort of proffered it to the kid and should it. Prostrate himself a form like a night and the kid the balloon and just shut up and not did the trick. And he walked back into I pass. And it was Luke Perry. So important he told Cullen that he carried balloons with him wherever he went in case, it was a screaming. As a as a father himself. He'd find this effect. Yeah. Absolutely Luke Perry who died this week at the age of fifty two time now for our second guest this week, and he is an absolute ruddy legend almost one of the people who needs no introduction by giving an introduction. Anyway, he's one of her favorite actors. He is when the coolest men in movies. He is of course, nNcholas j fury himself Samuel L Jackson who makes another appearance as Nick fury. But a different kind of Nick fury, a younger, Nick fury. A more idealistic Nick fury and with stereo vision. Wisteria officiant in this week's captain marvel. And I went loan to speak to him earlier on this week in a London hotel room. And I will say that I started off with the factual error, which he himself pick me up on. And I realized the minute I said that I was forgetting someone. So I was like, oh, yeah. Welcome to the empire podcast, man. Who's been more MCI films at anybody bar Stanley, some EU L Jackson was really? Yeah. Look. It up. And then I went all hang on. There's Robert any. So I forgot in the by man. But you don't really like our menu. So lukewarm on as you know, team cap until of course, cap does a terrible thing award that team Tonio away. But technically, speaking them, right? But also an ferry real way, I'm wrong. So if you look at it as some Jackson has been in nine films up to now. Okay. So he was in. I've got a list here. Go list..

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

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.
"samuel l. jackson" Discussed on Happy Sad Confused
"Fused. He might just be the coolest man on the planet. Samuel Jackson returns to talk glass and his remarkable career. Hey, guys, I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another edition of happy. Sad confused so pleased to be with you guys today to talk to the one and only Mr. Samuel Jackson. He is. Of course, the ultimate in cool. The man with all the swagger and the talent to back it up, and he is returning to the night Shamlan averse, if we want to call it that with the eagerly anticipated glass, I can't believe this movie exists. This is for those that know me a little bit or those that just know me, you know, casually on the podcast, or whatever you might not be surprised to know that I'm a huge unbreakable fan any any movie. Fan was on breakable. I've always been obsessed with us film. And to the point where what year was the two thousand ten two thousand ten I actually pitched to near Comecon, and and and and along with my friends at TV, we put together a tenth anniversary, retrospective of unbreakable and ward Shamlan to near Comecon to talk about it. And thus. A friendship was born with night. I've known him for eight years now going on nine and he's so talented, so. Society. I went to the premiere last night for glass here. New York seeing it for the second time and the way he introduced the film his parents were there his his generosity of spirit was really contagious. He's he's a good guy. And I'm happy for all the success. He's experienced in the last few years, especially after taking some knocks. You know, this is the the nature of any career. You don't ever just have hit after hit after hit? But for Shamlan. He no he he started with such remarkable films like like the success and breakable signs. And then, you know, then he got some knocks, but since directing the low budget horror film, the visit and then split which knocked my brain out of my head when I found out it was an unbreakable sequel and now with glass poise to make a ton of money by all by. L reports he's back on top. And I'm happy for him. So glass comes out this Friday as I tape this. It stars, of course, James McEvoy, and Bruce Willis and Sarah Paulson. She's great at it. And my guest today on happy. Second fused, Mr. Samuel L Jackson, his second visit to the podcast the last one was for myspace grin, the Tim Burton film that he was in a few years back that was short. Visit that was just like a twenty minute chat. This is much longer conversation. Much more recruiter conversation, and man, he is awesome. I mean, I've talked to Sam many many many times over the years that's the benefit of a career like Sam where he makes two movies minimum a year. So he's kind of always doing press never had a chance to talk to at this at this length, and I'll be honest in the early going in the early years of talking to Sam Jackson. I think I like many people was intimidated to a degree that it made me unable to function as a good interview or a good conversationalist with him because Sam walks into a room, and he is he knows he Sam Jackson in the best way possible. He's not an asshole about it. He's just very self possessed and confident, and if you ask a stupid question, he'll say what does that mean know what killed just like batted away? So you have to kind of be on your game with Sam Jackson. But I think I've been doing this long enough, and I've known Sam long enough that I think of keyed into the way to have a. Conversation with him. And this is this is a fantastic chat. He's so open and honest, and funny and smart, and I was delighted the entire time. And I think you will be too. We cover a lot for those that don't know digging a little bit into his past is fascinating, you know. Most people started to see him probably in Pulp Fiction that was like the big movie where Sam Jackson exploded onto the scene, but he'd been around for a bit. He done Spike Lee films..
Mega Millions jackpot swells to record $868 million
"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.
