Fresh update on "seinfeld" discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times

"He can do to her boss. So you break into her house? Oh, she never knew I was there. You know, the whole point is to isolate her and make her feel like she's going insane. So I would just do little things like replace her dog with a slightly different dog or, you know, change the furniture in her house, so she thinks she's shrinking. You know, basic stuff, most of what I learned in the military, some of it on a subreddit. It's a funny scene as the writer, I found it funny, but then as the actor, I was like, why the hell is he saying this to her? You know? And then you just go with it. And you know, it was really funny, but I'm like, God, he's so dumb. There's this moment where I'm like, he's so stupid. You know? But there's a sweetness to him. I don't know. It's complicated, but to me, what's fun about this process is discovering, you know? But I like to be prepared. But the acting is kind of the one thing I probably think about the least. I don't think about it even how to play a thing. It just seemed where I get mad at various mad at Sally at work that's really disturbing and you know, we wrote it that it just buried blows up at her. And says if I don't do this, I don't live. And we did Sarah's side first. And then when it came around on me for some first take, I just did what you saw, I started hitting myself. I just go crazy. We're saying the same thing. We are not saying the same thing. We are not saying the same thing. If I don't do this, I don't live. I have to do this to fucking live. I didn't really think about, you know, it wasn't like I woke up or was in rehearsals and saying this I don't want to play it. It just like happens in three O 8 when the guy has gone on when Barry's out at the tree with Albert, just one of the takes he screams at me and I cover my head and I just let out this weird scream and it's kind of like induced a panic attack. Which I do not recommend if you're also directing. So yeah, what I'm doing this show is like writing and directing a tend to be the things that I'm constantly focused on. But that's 90 8% of my brain is filled up with that stuff. And then it's like again on my mark and then go, okay. What are my lines? I know this season, I feel like Barry's time is a marine sort of played into the story, a lot more than it had in some of the other seasons. And I'm wondering if you all, did you do research into PTSD or how real is the depiction of what Barry is is going through in his very real mental health challenges? But before we do the pilot, I watched the movie restrepo, I thought that was really great. I talked to one that I'm a phone. My email with another one. But no, I didn't go and hang with anybody who had PTSD or talk to anybody. You're writing the story and then when his mental state, you know, you write a scene and then go, well, maybe from where he's at and where he's come from, maybe he would react like this. And then the satisfying thing is I've had vets tell me that they're really appreciated the show. Because this season also it's not just kind of varies trauma that's being explored, but really Sally and gene as well. Was there a sort of a conscious decision early in the season that they're sort of individual traumas, we're going to lead so much of this storytelling? Yeah, I mean, I think there's a thing that happens while we're writing where everybody's stories start kind of mirroring each other. And then all the characters are kind of in this delusional place, which is interesting. You know, there's a fork in the road and one way clearly leads to happiness and the way clearly doesn't, and they tend to go in the way that doesn't, you know, which I, you know, I think is a very human thing, you know? And so Sally's storyline with her getting her own show. I thought it was interesting for someone to have a win, you know? For someone to have something that worked. And that they're good at their job. They have to deal with notes and things like that, but it was Sally telling her story, you know, an honest way and doing it correctly, and it being well received. Look at your freaking face. It's huge. That face is being seen everywhere this morning. And you're still a 98% on roddy tees. This is insane. And then throughout no fault of her own, it goes away. We are canceling the show. Why? Well. The algorithm felt it wasn't hitting the right taste clusters. Taste clusters. It's been 12 hours. Don't we need time to get the and then, as you mentioned, big part of this season for Sally and also for Barry has to do with there's a lot of kind of inside jokes about how television shows get made in contemporary Hollywood. In particular, kind of the reliance on algorithms and streaming services and the things that creators go through for their art. Well, the algorithm thing came from a friend of mine who had a show on a streaming service and said, hey, you know, we're on the front page. It's a streaming service. Oh my God, and I went and looked at it. Congratulations. And I said, I'm going to watch this when I get home. And then went to work and I came back. I couldn't find it anywhere. And then I had to type it in and type in the full thing and scroll down. I went, oh, there it is. And I just was like, that's crazy, 'cause if, you know, if you went by that, you wouldn't have Seinfeld, you wouldn't have so many great shows that didn't. You know, great movies, great things that when they started out, they didn't hit immediately. And there's a scene in episode 6, Vanessa Bayer is playing TV executive and she sort of conveys her, she has this whole conversation through like sounds where it's like so right now the show it's more yeah. And you could bring it to more of a yeah. I think I know what you're saying. Where did that come from? Because it's very funny, but also something about it is very disturbing and unnerving. Yeah, that came from, I was writing that scene and I didn't know what the scene was. It just in the outline said Sally gets offered a job, a banshee, and she reluctantly takes it. And started writing it, and then I thought, man, when I'm in those meetings with my manager, it's like my manager and the other person, there's just speaking another language. I have no idea what they're saying. Especially when they're getting into deals and rights and all these other things I'm going, what? What is happening? So I thought she would just start making noises. And I think that you, Sally Reid,

America's National Pride Problem

"We're going to talk about being proud of being an American. You would just spend an entire month focused on pride. LGBTQIA+ pride. We were told that we must not just tolerate not just accept, not just celebrate, but we must participate. In these mass prides of drag queens and children exploitation and all this nonsense. You must participate. Where's your flag? Where's your ribbon as they would say in Seinfeld? Just come on, put the ribbon on. And there's a new poll out that we're going to kind of focus on for a little bit. And I have a take on this that I never thought I would have. National pride is down with majorities of Republicans and independents I'm reading from Fox News dot com. And nearly half of Democrats feeling dissatisfied with their country, according to the latest Fox News survey. The poll released Thursday asked registered voters are you proud of the country today? Just 39% said, yes. That is down 12 points from June of 2017 and down 30 points since June of 2011. While the question has only been asked four times, this marks a majority feeling disappointed in their country. 56% are not proud, up from 48% in 2017, and 28% in 2011. Independence and Republicans reversed their position since 2017. While formerly not proud Democrats are now on the fence. In 2017, Republicans by a 31 point margin and independence by four points were proud. Today, both Americans feel disenchanted with the country.

Tampa Bay Rays' Players Refuse to Wear Pride Patch: Charlie Weighs In

"Zach from calvary chapel, Chino Hills, love cavalry chapel, love Jack kibs. What is your opinion on several Tampa Bay baseball players who refuse to wear the rainbow pride patches on their jerseys during the pride night, their pride night instead sent out of the game. I fully support it. I do. I think that players pushing back against quote unquote pride night is critical. And we must understand that what you might think of as pride night has changed in its meaning. It's no longer about gay and lesbian, acceptance, no, no, no, it's about something much deeper than that, and also something that is much more controversial than that. It can mean now bringing children to drag queen, bars. It can mean chemical castration of children. That this idea of Pride Month has broadened from just like, okay, I suppose tolerance of gay and lesbian people. And the spectrum that moves from tolerance to acceptance, to celebration, to participation. I must give credit to Matt Walsh for that phenomenally brilliant kind of steps is now that you must participate, you must wear the pride patch. And it kind of goes back, okay, Connor, get the Kramer from Seinfeld. You don't want to put the button on from the aids walk. It's one of this great great scenes in television history. Where Kramer, who's kind of an aloof character in Seinfeld, decides to do the aids walk, but he doesn't want to put the button on or the ribbon. He just doesn't want to wear the ribbon, and it kind of is the same sort of thing where he ends up getting kind of attacked by the mob, albeit kind of very similar kind of the Pride Month aids walk mob where they say you don't support gay people because you don't want to wear the ribbon and it's kind of this joke in the show that unfolds into obvious kind of tumultuous hilarity where Kramer is like, no, no, no, I'm with you. I just don't want to wear the ribbon. I just don't want to wear the ribbon. And they say, what do you mean what do I put the ribbon on? And it's like this back and forth and you must participate. You must be part of this. It's not enough that you tolerate us. It's not enough that you accept us. It's not enough that you celebrate us, no, you must

Biden Administration Foolishly Refuses to Allow More Drilling

"Let me turn to this insane drilling stuff because it's like you can't make it up. The Wall Street Journal did a great thing the other day. I actually said this. Months ago, it's like Joe Biden needs to channel George Costanza from Seinfeld, where you just do the opposite of what you think you should do. That might actually help. Wall Street Journal had a great op-ed. Saying the same exact thing, just the other day. And this is one where, yeah, we really need where's George. Where's George Costanza? So the Biden administration is canceling drilling leases despite the fact that we have record high oil prices. This is a decision that I think is going to have some pretty serious consequences. So they are halting this drilling in the cook inlet in Alaska. This is a pretty significant high profile oil and natural gas lease opportunity that was before the interior department. And it's a little strange because he's been saying, yeah, yeah, yeah, in recent months, we're going to boost our oil and that gas production here in the U.S., right? Has the situation overseas not taught us anything in terms of the importance of being energy independent. And yet now, now, with inflation at a 40 year high with energy coming off of the market, so therefore driving energy prices even higher, his idea is to not approve leases. I mean, it's sort of mind boggling. And yes, brings us right back to that Seinfeld, George Costanza example, please. Please start doing the opposite of what you think is

"I don't think Harold Pinter has any idea we did it, but we did do it, and I'm sure he would have hated it. But the entire episode is backwards, and it is the backwards episode. And again, I love that. I mean, you know, it's like my great regret in life is I had one other idea for an episode of Seinfeld episode that we never got to do because Jerry ended the show. And I always wanted to do it. And it was another format breaker. It was the idea was going to be the gang goes on a vacation. I don't know. Jerry would have had like a gig or something, and everyone would have gone along. And it was basically going to be like, the bad version. I never got into where is it? But let's just say he goes to Mexico to like a resort town to perform. I guess it could have also been a cruise ship. It would have been another version of it. But the gist of it was they go to wherever. The cruise ship, the hotel, wherever. And then in the hotel, you have Jerry's hotel room that becomes your set. And you see only sort of the sitting area of the hotel room with the bathroom, more or less where Jerry's bathroom is and the bedroom back there. And then across the hallway is Kramer's hotel room. And they're coming back and forth. And then there's a Mexican cantina that they keep meeting in or the bar downstairs that becomes the coffee shop. And so it would have the idea was it would have been in Mexico, but it would have been the show, but not the show. And it's my great Seinfeld regret. I mean, everything else is rebooted. Why can't they reboot that for one night? Everything else is come on. I think we're all good. We're all good, but that would have been. I always wanted to do. I think to his credit, you know, I think there was a million reasons Jerry ended it at the time, but his core philosophy was certainly leave people wanting more, you know, he talked a lot at the time about The Beatles and you know it wasn't lost on me somewhere in there that there was like a fab for Entertainment Weekly cover of some sort..

"For me, I was unhappy. I mean, I honestly, and some of that probably was, and I've been back. And I've been back since I've gone back. I went back years ago once with Jerry Seinfeld. When Seinfeld ended, I went back with him, and then I went back with Julia when she hosted once as well. And it's definitely changed. I think people, people stay longer and part of the reason I think they stay longer is they have lives, and I don't know. They definitely have lives. I can sit here and I can also say to you, we never left and some of that was, I think, in a good way, Jim Downey and maybe in a bad way, Jim Downey, but we also, we rewrote sketches. You know, into like 5 in the morning. And some of it was fucking around, but also we also really rigorously rewrote sketches with Jim sort of from on high, often, you know, just adding these touches to these sketches that radically change them and made them better. Was it worth it? I don't know. I definitely like I am a better writer for watching and learning and as he rewrote sketches, but I had no life. I mean, I know that none of us really had lives. Even people that were older than me that were married were not home. You know what I mean? Some of them occasionally tried to sneak out and come back. It wasn't fun. Somewhere in that third year, we started, you know, I'm very aware of like we were going to the after party and then we were seeking out like an after party, like late night poker houses and nonsense like that. And at some point, I don't know, you know, and my big thing was I always came home, whatever time it was, and I watched the show on videotape because being there live, it always seemed better than it was. And when you went home and watched it, you really got a real sense of what the audience was seeing and when you couldn't hear that amazing live audience like right there when it was on camera I'm sorry when it was on television and you know it's not surrounding you in that same way and the energy doesn't come through like that. The sketches live and die much more on their own and somewhere in there, especially as it phased into that third year, the shows that shows definitely didn't seem as good. So then you start to go, I'm killing myself and the show isn't great. And somewhere in there also I was very aware of like, boy, I drank a lot of wine on Saturday again. I'm not talking about like 7 days a week of drinking, but like, I don't know, when you have a job and you're not happy like creatively and also on Saturday night, you feel the need to go play in like an all night poker place and you drank a lot of wine. You start to, in a great world, you say to yourself, it may be time to move on. And that was a combination of those things. It was definitely on my mind. And also, you know, again, that's a big part of the answer..

"seinfeld" Discussed on Just Getting Started with Rich Eisen

"You know and the desire of like is part of, I mean, The Beatles are The Beatles, but part of why we love them is because I'm not talking, I'm not talking about what eventually happened with the deaths, but they ended it. And you therefore you couldn't have any more beetles. And the going out on top, the leaving them wanting more. There's a lesson in there that I definitely absorbed. And so it's good, it's done. But yeah, that would have been a fun episode. What was the greatest difference then in transitioning from curb and Seinfeld or from Seinfeld to curb? What was the greatest difference in how the two shows are put together? Well, I mean, DNA wise, they're incredibly similar. I mean, obviously different characters, it's Larry, all that kind of stuff. But the DNA is very similar, obviously you don't have the network restraints and so obviously there's the cursing and the subject matter maybe gets even that much more intense. You know, obviously the biggest thing, it's a huge difference, but it's also not a difference is on Seinfeld. We pitched out an idea. We outlined it, and then we would write a script. Everything happens the same way on curb your enthusiasm, but there is no script. But the outline is as detailed as any outline in the world, seen by seeing what has to happen, the key components, and occasionally a couple of important key jokes if they're if they're important to the plot, those jokes are in there. And then Larry and the group improv and we sort of shape it and punch it up as we go live, which is wonderful. It's like, it's almost like doing live television. It's like, you know, it's like punching it up and making it better without this net, which is incredible from an adrenaline work experience. But what people don't understand.

"But relationships contain tension. That is unavoidable. It's essential, it's eternal. All relationships is always a little agenda thing, not quite lining up. Between the two people, right? And so every relationship you're in in life is going to be a certain amount of tension. Just accept that. You ask any friend how their relationship is going, they're going to touch their face. The first thing they do. How's it going, Judy? Not bad. And we're doing, okay? And the higher up on the face they go, the worst, the relationship is. I heard you having some problems, not really. We just got to work on a couple of things. I heard you might break up. Yeah, we got to break up. I can't go any higher on my head. This is one of the things that takes guys a long time to learn, especially you young guys who've got it all going on, and every other area. But you got to learn the flowers, the power of flowers, takes a long time for men to understand. To us, it seems like a frivolous thing, like an insignificant thing. If there were no flowers, earth would be populated by men and lesbians. Women are with men to get flowers. That's what they want. Men don't want a flower. Don't give a man flowers. They're like, oh, I got to take care of this now. And what if they die? I guess that's my fault. I'm the bad guy. Fine. But if a guy's walking down street holding a big bouquet of flowers, he's the star of that street. No other guy wants to be with a girl on the same street as that guy. 'cause you get that. See? That's what I'm talking about. 'cause he's got flowers. He could have a severed head in the other hand. She doesn't notice that. He was probably just defending himself. That's why the floors is not really set up right for what men need. Just walk in, you tell them what you did wrong. They gave me the flowers for that. And you just move right out the back. They need to make up the all right, your brother's not an idiot, bouquet. The your career is important too basket. That would be helpful to men.

"One of the big nights that I had here was my parents coming to see me do my show because I had never for whatever reason I was very embarrassed around my parents to show them this part of my personality. So when I started doing this, it was a little strange to them. When I told them I think I want to be a comedian and they went, okay. You know, you've never done anything funny. And so I've eventually, I brought them here and they sat right there and I was so nervous that night because I was showing them this whole side of myself. It was like my little gay closet moment, you know, where I had to say, mom, dad, I don't know how to tell you this, but I'm a funny person. And I don't want to be ashamed of it anymore. And I want to lead a funny lifestyle now. I want to be with other funny people. I want to have breakfast at two in the afternoon and I was up. And the other thing was meeting girls in the bar out there. That was a new thing, too. Because comedians sometimes have a little difficulty in normal social situations. I can do this for some reason and always always felt comfortable doing what I'm doing right now. I was like, I could talk to all of you, but I can't talk to any of you. I don't really understand that, but I've talked to a lot of other communities that have the similar thing. So when you coming here and doing a show, and then you go sit in the bar and girls will come and they would talk to you. And I was like, unbelievable. So that's why we never went any place else. Why would you not go where someone might be able to see you do the one thing that you can do? That's kind of cool. So I started having relationships with women observing them up close. Especially their bathrooms are fascinating little wonderlands. I noticed that women need a large and constant supply of cotton balls and men don't need any. I've never had a cotton ball in my entire life. I've never bought one owned one, needed one. I've never been in a situation where I thought to myself, I could use a cotton ball right now. I could certainly get out of this mess. Women need them. And they don't need one or two. They need thousands of them every single day. They buy bean bag chairs, filled with cotton balls. Two days later, they're all out. They need more. They're on their way back to the store. The only time I ever see them is two or three in the bottom and a little wastebasket looked like they've been through some horrible experience. Tortured interrogated. I don't know what you did to him. Once a woman left three cotton balls over my house, took me a year to use them up. But when all the kitchen floor I thought maybe the cockroaches would think it's a tumbleweed, go, this is a dead town. Let's move on. Or I go to the doctor before he gives you the shot, puts the alcohol on you on with the cotton ball. I bring one of mine. He goes for his. I go, maybe you could use this one. Sometimes he'd use it. Take a penny off on my bill. Gives me the prescription. I take that home, open up the bottle. There's another cotton ball in there. The cotton ball syndicate was always one step ahead.

"There's still maybe some of you who are on the fence with a New York City will make it back or not. Well, wonder no more because real housewife Bethany frankel began her unfortunate truth rant on Instagram and told everybody that the city is unsafe. So if you're on the fence, well now you know. You know, what do you do now if you're planning on visiting the Big Apple in your future? On one hand, you got the ultimate New York and Jerry Seinfeld who wrote an essay back in the summer of 2020 when people said COVID room to city. It's over. Jerry Seinfeld said, you don't have to always come back. We'll always come back. Look at that. What do you worry about? What's with this COVID? He's one of those guys. You can't help but try to imitate once you hear his name. What? Anyhow, he was like, don't leave the city. It's gonna be fine. But Bethany frankel doubled down. Especially in light of that psycho Frank James shooting ten on the Brooklyn subway train, she said the subway situation is terrifying, as if she takes it. And New York is not what it used to be. New York is not safe. Bethany's got an 11 year old daughter and admitted she can not help but be the dorky parent who doesn't want her kid walking around the city. It's scary and I have no choice if we're dealing with Manhattan and to be a helicopter parent. And I chose to not be in New York City to be honest, I think it's scary and we have to talk about it, she continued.

Reruns (MM #3909)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. Way back in the days when we only had three TV channels, we used to have to deal with reruns come the holiday season. They only make so many shows each year, so interspersed throughout the year they'd have repeat episodes, and we hated those because we didn't know what to watch then. Our favorite show wasn't on them. We'd already seen that episode so why watch again? Well, I don't know if you've paid attention to network TV these days, but we don't have as many reruns anymore. They basically cram two shows into a period. So a Thursday at 7 p.m. show or Thursday at 8 p.m. shut runs, a partial season, and then they have a new Thursday at 7 or 8 p.m. show. That means no reruns. But the problem, you used to one thing and then have to switch and change to something else. It changes your viewing habits, multiple times a year. I'll be honest, I don't watch as much TV, and what do I watch when I do? Well, I watch reruns. Yeah, I watched streamed shows of all the old favorites I used to watch and things like Seinfeld, things like Friends, things like The Big Bang Theory, all those comedies, and what are you watching? Reruns. I remember when we just hit three choices, it was much simpler, even though much more boring at times.

They only make so many shows each year, so interspersed throughout the year they'd have repeat episodes, and we hated those because we didn't know what to watch then. Our favorite show wasn't on them. We'd already seen that episode so why watch again? Well, I don't know if you've paid attention to network TV these days, but we don't have as many reruns anymore. They basically cram two shows into a period. So a Thursday at 7 p.m. show or Thursday at 8 p.m. shut runs, a partial season, and then they have a new Thursday at 7 or 8 p.m. show. That means no reruns. But the problem, you used to one thing and then have to switch and change to something else. It changes your viewing habits, multiple times a year. I'll be honest, I don't watch as much TV, and what do I watch when I do? Well, I watch reruns. Yeah, I watched streamed shows of all the old favorites I used to watch and things like Seinfeld, things like Friends, things like The Big Bang Theory, all those comedies, and what are you watching? Reruns. I remember when we just hit three choices, it was much simpler, even though much more boring at times.

And Julia Louis-Dreyfus who played Elaine Seinfeld was on that season, of course, with the Seinfeld reunion, and there's a great scene where a number of scenes where someone has left a ring stain like from a wet drink on a nice wooden coffee table of Julia's and she's accusing Larry of doing it, and then Larry's trying to figure out who did it. So he keeps asking them if they respect wood. So if you have not seen that season in particular curb, it's one of the all time best. We're gonna jump to those questions in just a second. Here's a few warm up questions from the weakest link board game from 2001. Number one and what decade did the TV show American bandstand originally premiere when did American band come out?

"Is one. There's a monocultural idea of new york. Which is like it's worth these. Jews live and talk to that also breaking down as new york gets more diverse but also like these as television becomes more fractured. You get depictions of new york. That are much smaller that when they are depicted in new york they are not being like. This is what new york looks like. I think like brought city did an episode about a street. And there's this street is the street will live on and girls is very much like this brooklyn. We don't and even like aquafina. I think is more about queens. Like i think the assumption the sort of seinfeld ian confidence to be like. We're gonna make a show about new york city but it's only going to be about people within four blocks the one side each other. I can't imagine someone doing that. I think what you're saying speaks to the insular nature of the show. The show is about characters who live in the same neighborhood in the same four block radius and do the same things every week. I thought they made up the idea of kramer gain loss at the corner. Second and second. I was like there's no city in the world that will be to into that doesn't make sense to me when i found out that that's how new york works. I was very confused. Yeah the idea of avenues and streets and in queens. They've got like numbers. And then a dash and then more numbers. What is this. There are too many numbers that the subways are numbered. The they've got letters to pick. Wine stopped is streets. Avenues what are you gonna do. I don't know let's have both Both in numbers numbers before this becomes just new york brazelle. A it is a grid system. That is incredibly intuitive. But i understand l. a. has like four streets go the tire way and then everything's off of it. Well i think everybody hates where they live. that's that's just a fact and seinfeld is about hating the place relive and there is a sense of purgatory to it. Which is again. i think reinforcing what. I'm what i'm trying to say about. The show is that you feel trapped. When you're watching seinfeld. I think purgatory is exactly it. Liked me this show least jerry's version of the show is. This is waiting for godot. These people are stock reliving the same conversations about nothing. It's not a show where it's a show about nothing nothing happens. There's the idea of jerry. Put a picture of the earth. Seen from space in the raiders room to explain to people. This doesn't matter what we're doing is just. This is just our lot and then we're going to be dead in one hundred years or whatever. No one's gonna care about this. Yeah larry's show everyone gets in each other's way and it's like these complicated plots. Jerry doesn't care about the complicated Jerry just wants these people have nothing happened to them that they go through all these journeys in the exact same spot. It's like to me. It's like the chinese restaurant. Episode is like a a further distillation of the show of just like there's no plot like literally it's them waiting for their table and even when their table is called. It's the raw like that sort of complete meaninglessness. I think is captured. This sort of like dark as part of the shell. We're all trapped on the same rock sort of thing. So isn't that and funny that we're all stuck together in our own form of predatory which is life by bringing larry. I want to talk about our last question. Which is if this jerry's world and jerry's experience filtered through these characters. What's larry david's role here. Because larry david famously leaves after season. Seven doesn't come back until the finale which people hate it. it's still reviled in famously. Became the subject of the curb. Your enthusiasm seinfeld reunion season. Larry goes on to great success. Doing curb becomes a star in his own right. And you see serious differences between these two shows or similarities. Obviously but curb is just a meaner. I think it has more contempt for its characters than seinfeld ever did. So what did larry bring to the show and how to. How do we reconcile this kind of theory. The grand theory of seinfeld with the fact that it is not an autour vision it is a collaborative vision between two similar but different men. The show got written very differently than almost every sitcom ever which essentially writers pitched an idea. They wrote a full script than they gave it to. Larry and jerry and the no. No one knows what happens. They just like fully put whatever their spin on it. But if you look at what happens. When larry leaves all the plotting becomes much similar in much broader and like much bit focused. There's not these things where it all comes together and crashes together. It's like the bizarro world thing bizarro. Jerry where it's like this is like barely set in a real world. This is just a conceit. Sounds like a sketch you have to remember. The show's called seinfeld. It seinfeld show. They're doing the show. Because of jerry seinfeld then jerry brings larry in and he's almost like it's like jerry's the god of this world then larry is like the facilitator of this world and he's moving the pieces around he's wormtongue from lord of the rigs so i think larry is the person who's like it's funny to call him humanistic because obviously the show so anti feelings but he cares about human scale problems any moves people around and there's more plots about dating and like people angrier and i think that's the larry thing of how can people get in each other's way right and i think jerry people have no relationship to him. He's like completely on his world. he's he's not interacting with them. And i think larry is the clashing of different egos and and seeing how could do it and how it all relates. I think. I don't think jerry cares as much about this sort of that. The thing that even kerber susie as ending that perfect thing where the plod plod in everything comes together and it's like one thing. I don't know if they did that as much when the mario left. Yeah it was more like you said idea. Based in very sketchy Because it's not necessarily about how annoying it is to be around other people. It's about how ridiculous the world is. And i guess. That's these are two separate coping mechanisms for for life which is either nothing matters. Everything matters so much. I am going to like. Take this rock and precedent to a diamond. Just because i'm so mad there's a bit of a trying to attain zen in jerry's life that every everything gets in the way of that but there is something very much where he's always trying to find some kind of peace and i think finding humor which is also like a very kind of like a buddhist mentality is finding the humor. Am these small irritations. Maybe that's my galaxy bringing take on the whole thing. Is that as that like. The world is keeping jerry from attaining supremacy in a. jerry's been meditating disease like eighteen. or there's a feeling of like he's trying to meditate and then these people keep on interrupting his yes very Los angeles attitude trying to find peace and being it being impossible even though you should be able to. There's all kinds of other things happening around you. Whereas i think larry's mentality is more. What i associate with new york which is this is pissing me off. I'm mad and i. I'm really comfortable being nad and where i am. Most useful to the world isn't expressing my anger. The culture of new york is just people in different accents screaming at each other. I can't think of a more new york person than jesse david fox our guest today so much for joining us to talk about seinfeld they feel like we really broke it down and figured it out. I think we solved it. Resolves that we crack the nut. If you're listening to this good podcast feed you know. Listen to our show but if you're listening to it on the guys you bring feed. Well listen to jesse show more. This is what it's all about isn't this is the l. a. In us coming out. Hey just like support your friends. it'd be nice to each other as a new yorker. I say you have to pick one room for two podcasts. Only room for one. All right jesse. Go away now. Each week we wrap up the show with the galaxy brain take from one of our.

"What would jerry do. What would a lane do. What would be a funny position for them to be in. And i think that's because the greatest sitcoms and especially seinfeld or all about what's going on in your head. I honestly think seinfeld in a lot of ways is just four characters having a conversation. That is what jerry would have himself like. It's his internal monologue expressed through four people in some ways. That hear me out. Jona seinfeld is essentially a hallucination of jerry seinfeld well hold on wait okay. Sorry you seriously think. Seinfeld is a hallucination. How often do you see jerry's bedroom or bathroom. Where all of these characters magically rhonda's apartment in the first place the way people move and react in sitcoms is unnatural but seinfeld awesome calls attention to its artificiality season. Four's meta arc in the cupboard. Union are especially telling examples of this but seinfeld has tons of stories that take place outside of jerry's apartment. There's monks elaine's office Yankee stadium kramer's apartment. I mean they even go to india and one episode. Yes yes. I get that. But what i'm saying is the show was an expression of jerry's various personalities. Even if larry david was co-creator these characters the slovenly buffoon the mucci neighbor in the focused careerist yearning for healthy relationship. Are all basically just reflections of the man. Jerry seinfeld these characters could barely stand each other. Have very little in common and yet they're all drawn to each other in severely unhealthy ways. Why are they stuck together. Jona because in every single episode jerry seinfeld is essentially talking to himself. Oh my you turned into a beautiful angel known you pissed on the couch. You're just feed your polls. Oh i'll just flip the cushion. It's fine.

"Meta fictional version. Of jerry's life told through the trappings of a traditional multi. Camera sitcom what made seinfeld so unique at the time was that it didn't treat in the usual sick. I'm troves while still being an amazing on. It wasn't about a family or set in a workplace. In fact the only time we ever saw jerry at work and most episodes was the cold open where he'd be on stage on joke that was loosely connected to the plot for that week's show as writers would go on to admit during the incredibly medicine for arc about jerry and his best friend george. Creating sitcom seinfeld was about nothing. It was four people. Only nominally friends getting involved in hijinks. It usually stemmed from their social ineptitude selfishness and inability to express themselves. Honestly ensure these people sucked. They were decks. Which is why larry. David's polarizing final episode of the series saw jerry. George elaine and kramer put on trial and sent to prison for violating a good samaritan law. Well audience in the ninety s adore these characters and obsess over there outrageous narcissistic behavior. Larry saw them is contemptuous and felt that they simply had to be punished. That's pretty weird. Considering all four main characters on seinfeld were based on real people one of them. Jerry seinfeld is playing a fictional version of himself. Seinfeld is a perfectly written. Expertly plotted sitcom with dozens of memorable episodes. But is it also a terrifying vision of one man splintered identity. Let's dive into the existential muck in another edition of critical raise. What is your favorite episode of seinfeld. You know it's funny. I i. I was trying to think that when. I knew we were doing this episode. You know i think of seinfeld and moments more than i do of episodes and because it does feel like you know sketch show in that way and some of them are as simple as say. The frogger episode. All it really is is moved. That georgia's and i think this move a lot where he can't push the frogger out of the dividend the road and then he like puts his hand up like his last his last shot at lake trying to stop the truck from coming destroying the frogger is to put his hand up and try and stop the truck with his hand and then like dodging the way george they closed up a one nine outside.

"I heard about this. I know it was a media sensation and like the late mid nineties. Ninety six the verdict came down in ninety four. Yeah and i know that this was an event that was directly. Parodied on seinfeld. Which i think is kind of a litmus test for cultural relevance and the seinfeld version is that kramer is going to a movie theater and he's trying to smuggle in a cafe lot hey and he gospels it. Somehow it burns his leg and he's like i'm going to sue the coffee company because the coffee was too hot and like what a ridiculous thing to sue anyone for making hot coffee hot. It's supposed to be hot. Her and all of this is based on a case. Where there is this. Elderly woman named florence. Liebeck it's actually stella liebeck. Stella why do i think her name's florence. Is there a florence liebeck. I think you're thinking of florence in the coffee machine alright. Stella that's great. What a great name. Who went to mcdonald's drive-thru and she ordered a hot coffee and it spilled somehow and she got burns from the coffee and she sued mcdonalds and the way the story went was mcdonald's had given her like thirty trillion dollars. And there was this sense of lake will what next like. Why doesn't everyone sue every large corporation for a lot of money for a product behaving in a predictable way. Yeah i mean the term that you heard a lot at the time was jackpot justice. Was this idea that people are doing these completely normal things like we've all spilled coffee on ourselves and blowing them up into these like. Oh my life was never the same. After i spilled up. You know luke warm cup of coffee on myself. It's the juxtaposition between this completely. Every day normal thing that happens to everybody and the massive settlement that this woman got by suing mcdonalds and then also i feel like maybe this isn't true but my understanding was that it was because of this like whenever you get a beverage from anywhere still today.

New York Isn't Dead

"It was the headline struck at the heart of cities. During the pandemic new york is dead. Forever author investor james outdoors op-ed declared new york in a death spiral because quote businesses are remote and they aren't return to the office ended up leading jerry seinfeld to pen. His celebrated appeal declaring that new york. Sure as hell will be back so a year later. Who was right robert. Frank joins us with more robert. Good morning andrew jerry. Seinfeld's words still inspiring new yorkers year later with that hashtag. nyc is not dead and that of course was a response to all tutors. Op ed saying that. Remote work empty office. Buildings boarded up restaurants and hotels. Rising crime and high taxes would hollow out the city for years or decades. Now who was right. Well a year later on the residential real estate size that side that has rebounded sales more than doubling over the past year prices almost back to pre pandemic levels and do rentals having their best quarter in recent history. You look at restaurant traffic. That was down. Eighty nine percent a year ago from pre penned democ. Now it's about half of those prepaid pandemic levels. Mta subway ridership. It is improving but it is still about half what it was pre pandemic hotel occupancy now at around sixty seven percent that compares to about forty percent a year ago so improvement there as well. But new york's recovery future depends a lot on office workers and that is the big unknown. There was forty seven million square feet of empty office space in midtown as the first quarter and then if you look at rental rates they are down nine percent from a year ago a year ago only twelve percent of new york city workers were back in the office. Now it is twenty three percent and guys with the delta variant. We thought people would come back in right after labor day. Now we're looking at mid october. Maybe so until we get those office workers back until we know how many do come back. New york's recovery is still open to question

Playing Poker With Presence

"So it's really one of the classic episodes of seinfeld because it just goes to show how disconnected george was how out of it. He was in terms of being in touch with reality in terms of having connection presence in his life to the point where if he literally just did the opposite of his first instinct than he would have an amazing life. And i think that this is a really important concept to take into practice at the poker table because poker is a game where we are impacted so much by what's happening around us. It's so easy to get disconnected so easy to lose our presence at the table and when we do we might as well just be doing the opposite of whatever. Our mind is telling us when our mind says oh. This is a great candidates bluff. Right here he's never going to think that i'm bluffing. So i can get this one through. Sometimes that's true. Sometimes that's not and the thing that's going to determine whether that's a good thought whether that's something that we should follow through on is our level of presence and so the more that we can be aware of how connected we feel how much presence how much flow we are in the more that we can learn how to either trust our instincts or just completely ignore all the thoughts that we're having because at the poker table we get so many ideas. Oh this might be a good idea. Maybe i could do that. Maybe i could choose this sizing. Maybe i could fold this huge hand at the top of my range and what is going to need to happen if you want to be a person who can reliably trust. Your instincts is to know whether or not right now is a good time to trust your instincts. So do you have a barometer built into place. Do you have a system a method in which you can actually figure out whether you are present connected in the flow of the game right now or whether you're kind of out of it right. That is the thing. That is the distinction. That's going to give you the upper hand in terms of not putting it all away. Not leveling yourself not tricking yourself into doing something. Later that you'll regret once you can look back at it when you feel more connection again. You don't want to look back later when you're feeling more calm and resource relaxed and say oh. I wish i had done that. And i can see now that i was just

But there's something about moses that might not be evident. At first glance moses may look like as he puts it. I'm a nice jewish boy from the midwest. The thing you wouldn't see disguised under the suit jacket and tie under the friendly. Bearded face is the fact that moses also happens to be very good at going places the authorities do not want him to go going past the no trespassing seinfeld better way of putting it you know i originally talked about it is as places you're not supposed to be but i don't i don't really like that framing. I think i'm supposed to be there. I think you know anybody supposed to be there if they want to go. You know it's just that sometimes the authorities don't think you're supposed to be there. Do you consider yourself urban explorer. That's the label. That i guess is kind of caught on. So okay you know it's I consider myself a curious person who loves cities and likes to see them and tries to go about seeing them and learning about a.
