Elon Musk Is Not a Smart Man and Will Destroy Twitter Says Bob Cesca
"You know what's amazing about this is Elon Musk like Donald Trump is considered falsely to be this business genius. He just invented a business model for Twitter that's actually worse than Trump steaks. Right. And actually, Trump steaks selling beef in a sharper image mall store. Suddenly is a better business model. Comparatively. You said that you said Elon's not a smart man. He stands on the shoulders of far greater minds and insisted endows him with similar intellect clearly. He's delusional because you were responding to someone saying, how will removing the verification, which will cause thousands of new fake accounts to be created, reduced bots and trolls, which is what he said, right? He said, he says, it's the only way to defeat the bots and trolls. And you just said, how about banning? The bots and trolls. That's true. Instead, you're punishing people who are definitely not bots for trolls, people who submitted government documentation of their identities in order to prove who we are, this is a BS excuse. It really is. Yeah. He walked in as a relatively new user of Twitter and fell prey to I think the stereotype, which is that blue check is some sort of status symbol. And that's exclusively all it is. It's actually not. There's a protective purpose here. And in the wake of the 2016 election, you would think the social media platforms would want to take a stronger posture when it comes to weeding out disinformation and fake accounts and fake news and all the rest of it. But Elon Musk is just walking right into this propeller and not realizing that he's making the situation on Twitter far worse that's absolutely going to disintegrated into the sad mall. Every town has a sad mall where there's we'll talk to Carlos about the sad Burbank mall. Yes. Yeah. A couple of stores in a spirit Halloween and that's it. That's all. Is there still Spencer gifts? Yeah, that's right. That's a dollar store. That's about all. And that's going to be Twitter. And I would say it's a matter of months, not years. That is just going to slowly start to fall apart. And already, people with gigantic accounts, millions and millions of followers. Are looking at alternatives.

Debunking the ESG Attacks on Bitcoin by Spencer Nichols
"Let's get into today's read. Again, this one's from Bitcoin magazine and its titled. Debunking the ESG attack on Bitcoin. By Spencer Nichols those who decry Bitcoin's use of energy failed to acknowledge that all things in life require energy, and there is no such thing as a free lunch. A PhD pamphlet of this article is available for download. The utility of the exchanges made possible by Bitcoin will far exceed the cost of electricity used. Not having Bitcoin would be the net waste. Satoshi Nakamoto no free lunch. Those who decry Bitcoin's use of energy fail to acknowledge a simple reality that all things in life require energy, and there is no such thing as free lunch. Much mainstream debate has been waged on concerns around Bitcoin's use of energy. Yet a significant portion of that conversation has been muddied by deep seated myopia on the part of legacy financial interests. A type of willful blindness toward recognizing the necessity of decentralized energy money in comparison to the compromised Fiat financial system of today. The fact is, any economic engine is only as good as the energy which sustains it. For a network to maintain its structure and persist despite the entropy of the universe, energy must flow. In monetary networks are no exception. Ever since government issued Fiat currency severed the link between energy and monetary creation, the currencies of the world have been steadily marching to their graves.

How Spencer Levine's Game Has Changed With Age
"What I was most impressed with, Steen. Like you're almost 40 years old, okay? And you're going up against these guys. And I mean, I've played a million rounds a few. We hit the same, I am. I am out here by 50 yards by a lot of these guys. Like Paul bars and Paul barjon plays at my club here. And we played together. He's 50 yards by me. And he's right. And he lost his card on the PGA Tour this year. These guys are hitting it 50 by me. I know they're hitting it 50 by you. You had no problem being too back on Saturday. No problem. If you would have made a few more putts, you probably would have been right there on Sunday. But like, yeah, that's a thing. When you get to be almost 40 years old, like you are, and you know you're going to get out driven. You just have to, at some point, you have to middle game these guys. And that's something in your career. Same as me, and we've struggled with, right? Middle game is mental game has been tough because we're so hard on ourselves. You're the same way as me, we're just fucking get mad and whatever. Sure. But how have you chilled out? Like, how have you settled down in your later years? Well, you know, like this week, I think this week in a way, it was just a one week thing, so it was like, you know, or obviously I wanted to be more than that once you get in, you're playing good, you start thinking ahead, like, well, if I can do this, you know, you can go here there, obviously. But since it was a one week thing and you're kind of thinking of it more, I don't know, I felt like more of like, I don't want to say vacation, but I was just like grateful. You know what I'm saying? So that was kind of the mindset for the week. It's not like you've been on the road for 8 weeks, you know, missed a couple cuts, and you're getting bitter. It was like, okay, I got my time to play. So I had a good attitude all week, which was cool. And yeah, with the driving distance dude, yeah, these guys vomit, but dude, I looked at my stats, they're pretty good. I was in the top ten in strokes gained off the tee overall, which was pretty good. I saw I was number one in fairways hit, and then like middle of the pack distance, but like, so I was top ten combined, which is pretty good. You know what I mean? It's not like I was short and then I think the first two days I was number one in green's hit too as well. So like I just hit it really good last week,
Putting Is a Confidence Game
"Putting is like 90 something percent confidence. Like if you feel good, if you feel like you're holding something and putting well with it, like, you're going to put well, right? You can have like the Taj Mahal of circle T Scotty Cameron's that's forged out of like baby leopard seal, whatever, but if it doesn't look good in your hands or feel good, it's probably not gonna work. Like if it feels good, I think a chance you put good with it. And I think the 99 point now, I think when you said 90 something, I think you meant 99.99999% confidence, I think is what you need for sure. Is you guys have seen a dude in like pro ams or if you play with chops, dude, you've seen chops with the worst strokes ever puck good sometimes. You're like, how do you do that? So it just kind of shows you how mental it is, you know?
Spencer Levine Is Back

"We can get into a bunch of shit because you're not on social media, but like the people love you. I've told you this before. Especially especially we'll get to the happy Gilmore putting scenario at some point 'cause obviously you came in hot, you said you win your old man's garage and you saw this thing and it was dialed or whatever, but first of all, man. Like the Monday queue or whatever, like I saw that and I texted you once I saw you were in or whatever because I know how that shit can go. You can end up in a playoff out of nowhere, but what were the emotions going through? When was the last tour event you played? What were the emotions going through just getting into the Monday queue? I think last time I was in Vegas, you maybe made it to Vegas that time. A couple of years ago, but how are you feeling? Yeah, that was the last tour event I played due to a couple of years ago in Vegas. So yeah, it was nice, man. I went in there, you know, this Monday with not a whole lot of expectations. I mean, I've been playing well at home, but hadn't been planning a competition, but yeah, I just had a good day, dude. I hit it well, and was able to make a few putts and that course is, you know, one of those courses where, you know, you see the scores are pretty damn low. So if you're driving it good there, just kind of like at the actual tournament course, you're gonna have a lot of scoring opportunities. So I drove it really good in the Monday and then I shot a low score and made some putts and I was waiting around. I was in the morning, so like you said, I kind of figured I'd be in a playoff and then it kind of felt like a bonus not to have to play off, so. Honestly, dude, I just felt I was just happy bro I was just happy to be in a tournament. I had a lot of my buddies came out. My dad came out to watch the tournament, so it was just a fun week, man. It felt like the old days it really did. It was a good time. The whole week. I couldn't ask for much more. It was great.

Again, follow him on Twitter at Adam Spencer for checkout Saturday down south you guys know that obviously it's a fixture for so many SEC fans. In the meantime, he's ranked him LSU one Texas a and M two South Carolina three auburn four Florida 5 Tennessee 6 7, Mississippi 8, Alabama 9, Arkansas ten, all right? So that's a little bit of the list. If you have an issue with it, you can certainly call in and defend the ranking that you think is wrong. Tell me what atmosphere you think is the best in all of college football. All of the SEC will take more of your calls 8 5 5 two four two 7 two 8 5 8 5 5 two four two poll more your calls on the Paul finebaum show next. FX presents the old man in Afghanistan. They called him the beast that eats everything. You're about to drive this to a place you're not gonna like. Academy Award winners. You have bridges. You have no idea. What I did, who I was.

I've been talking to you guys about pressure about the playoffs, but then I really we're all over the place with SEC football. But what does that surprise? That's what we do here. All right? A lot of conversation about the rankings. Clay in Georgia calling in to the Paul fine bomb show clay. Thanks for calling me, man. What you got? Thanks for hanging out with me. What's going on? Living that dream, brother, how are you? Pretty good. So about the rankings. I pretty much agree with him on like the first two, but South Carolina had three to kind of rack my brain a bit a little bit. You know, South Carolina besides them putting the road team in the sun and baking like a chicken on the grill. I don't understand. There's nothing about South Carolina that's really even remotely intimidating besides being hot. LSU I've been LSU is 100% a crazy atmosphere. Maybe because they've been drinking all the food who's moonshine and eating devil's breath freaking food all day and have indigestion, but that is a crazy environment. Texas a and M have never been, I would love to go, but that would be pretty intimidating with over a 100,000 fans. I've been Alabama. Yes, the team, the coach, everything about it, is 100% intimidating, but I would still say when they, when they turn dixieland and I don't at the end of the third quarter and that stadium is on all fours, I'm telling you, that is a crazy stadium. I'm a Georgia fan. I think I've been in some crazy atmospheres at Georgia. And I think it ranks up in their top 5, but auburn is another one that is pretty damn crazy, loud as hell. You can't really even think because it's so loud, but South Carolina at three is really mind boggling because the only thing they got going for them is putting their road fans and frigging the sun. Yeah, I actually, I don't disagree with you, man. Thanks for the call. I thought South Carolina was high. And I think frankly, from my experiences, Florida, a little bit low. I mean, Florida, 5. The swamp hit me. I'm not gonna lie, I was there with game day a couple of years ago. And obviously we did the show in the morning. And then that afternoon that night went over to the stadium where that afternoon went over to the stadium. And it was wild. Like, y'all know that, but it hit hard. Like, Neil and stadium obviously with me spending a lot of time in Nashville for 25 years of my life. I think I've been there a bunch of times, and I think it's a special atmosphere, also some of the nicest fans. I don't know if I just had a weird experience, but it's amazing how kind. I've been to a bunch of Tennessee games where the ball is lost and everybody's like, we'll get you next time. Weirdest thing I've ever seen. But I'm not sure anything I've seen anywhere in college football tops that would shoot. Like LSU. To me, this was a clear cut LSU one, Texas a and M two. I got no problem with that after that. It's almost like, what flavor of ice cream do you like? We can all agree that if it's Neapolitan ice cream, the strawberry is the best the chocolate's the worst. The rest of it's just the vanilla, right? So I think we all agree on that, at least I feel like in my mind, I'm in Montgomery. I'm in next call in the ball fine but I'm sure I haven't heard from you yet today. So always happy when the regulars call, man, thanks for hanging out with me. Hey, I appreciate you taking my call. I got three things real quick if I can remember them. I see the WNBA basketball star pled guilty. Have you been traveling around musically? You've been in and out of the country, right? Mmm um.

"spencer" Discussed on Talk Is Jericho
"Sort of the self awareness to be so good as such an evil spot of Satan. Let's call him when he was like four years old. Four years old, right? That's cool. But let's talk a little bit about you mentioned the presentation and the rollout and obviously your record company spending little money on you. And the reason why is and this is how this whole thing kicked off. I remember we had a song called sandpaper back in 2012 and it's like, let's send the single with a piece of sandpaper with a fozzy F on it. Yes, it's great. Here we go fast forward to 2021 and the promo pack for silver screen two comes in the mail to me and it is this box. A really big cardboard almost like a file box. And I have forgotten that your publisher is going to send it. So I open it up. And the first thing I see is the evidence bag and it's got a bunch of detail on the my first thought was what the fuck did I do? Am I in trouble for something? Why am I getting sent evidence bags? And then there's another great kind of a sheet that tells all the crimes that Spencer committed and killing his girlfriend kind of a police report. And I was like, oh, it's the ice that I kill this thing. So I looked through it and there's a mask and there's a knife and there's an umbrella and it's like this. I actually called my manager and I was like, dude, you want to do something special for a rollout? Check this shit out. Unbelievable. How did you guys come up with this idea? Well, thank you so much, man. I mean, it goes back to for me..

"That's the worst place for Alabama to have it because that's the person who can do the most damage to them. Spencer hall joining us. Do you believe we saw Kirby smart in Georgia get pushed around by auburn in 2017 on the planes? They came back a couple of weeks later and physically dominated the tigers. Do you have any faith that Georgia is able to correct those mistakes and solve the problems? No, because I think there's just there's still a big preexisting issue in difference between the two teams. And it's that you have one guy that you can't defend. The numbers don't really work out for you. And at one point, you're going to have to leave somebody one on one. And when my guy is better than your dude, I'm going to spy that advantage and take it every single time. I set material. That's not like a psychological. I'm not saying, well, these guys are up for it. No, no, no, no, no. I don't care who's up for it. You up or down, if you can't defend the guy and he has an advantage, Alabama's gonna find a way to lean on it. And Georgia knows that, you know, one of my favorite stories I've ever heard is there was a division one coach. I think it was Tim levit who watched Mario Williams on tape walked into a room and he looked at his offensive staff used F, and he says, what are you guys going to do with that big joker? Good luck with that. Let's just watch the room. And that's very instructive for me because sometimes there are players for whom you don't have an answer. I think fans think a lot of the time, oh, if we just countered this or if we just had this defense or if I just move this guy there, puff, tough, come up with whatever schemes you want to. Kirby smart doesn't have an answer that will prevent Bryce young from getting his and that receiving core from getting open down the field. I've seen it happen. He's just not going to because no one else has. Spencer, can you stick around and I can ask you about JT Daniels and Billy Napier and Brian Kelly. Can you do that for me? Oh, certainly. Absolutely. Spencer hall joining us here. We'll talk up more SEC football with the great Spencer hall..
"spencer" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"The Paul find bomb show on ESPN radio. My name is not Paul finebaum. It is Brayton goal. You can get to me on the twitters at brayden gall filling in for Paul this week. Merry Christmas, happy holidays. The Festivus for the rest of us. Thank you guys for hanging out with us 855-242-7285. We will get to your calls coming up. But a man that I had to have on with me this week, somebody I admire. I look up to, I read frequently. I listen to talk about college football all over the place. Spencer hall every day should be Saturday on the Twitter sphere and everywhere else in the world you can find him shut down forecast all that great stuff. Spencer, welcome to the fine bomb show, how are you, sir? I'm good, Brad, and thanks for having me on and happy holidays. And to you as well. Let me, I want to go philosophical with you right out of the gate because that's what I love hearing you talk about. And that is all of these things that are happening that old folk are concerned about with college football. All these market forces, name image and likeness and the transfer portal, oh my God, and all these things, conference expansion and playoffs and realignment and everything. Do you actually believe that there will be a spreading out of the wealth and more parity in equity in the sport of college football in the coming years because of all these things happening to our sport? If it did, it doesn't be temporary. Because inevitably, I think what will happen? And this happens with most markets that there are if anytime there's an expansion of wealth or people with share, there's inevitably people who will either squander it or those who will sort of find a way to centralize it. So I think if there were programs that went off market and ended up becoming very successful, I don't know, they like BYU get the row booster here just decides to pay everybody. Just flat out pays everybody, right? And he pays more than market share. Well over time, somebody's going to find a way to cut into that in an organized fashion. I don't mean one team. I mean, a league doing that. So I think what the ambition was some in charge of the sport are, is to trim this down into a Super League and whatever it gets in the way of that will be eliminated one way or the other. Spencer hall joining us here on the fine bomb show. Do you feel that that endgame that Super League you're talking about? Are we talking about 20 teams? Are we talking about 65 teams? What does that look like and how can I still enjoy college football at that point? Well, you'll enjoy it because you'll kind of be wedded to it. And because a lot of the teams that you watch anyway, will probably be included in whatever the Super League is, whether it's 32 teams or not. I will tell you that among major decision makers, the Premier League is a very attractive model. You're not familiar with the Premier League. The English primarily specifically, the way they do soccer. And the Champions League itself are in England. And the Champions League is another model where we kind of already run a Champions League if you think about it. It's just very small. They expanded playoff would just be, okay, who qualifies for this extended tournament play out of different leagues? And honestly, I don't think that's a terrible model for the sport. Especially given how successful and popular soccer is and how people still manage to follow their team. When you say, well, how does a little guys get a shot? I hate to tell anyone. But if you're there to see, I don't know, let's say the potato bowl right now can stay in Wyoming or playing. If you're here to see Ken state in Wyoming, win a national title, you're going to keep waiting. You're going to die waiting. But that's not happening. But you can enjoy them and understand that your fandom might not include some of the bonus packages that say being an Alabama or an Ohio State fan would. Spencer hall joining us here. I agree with you, and I think and I think you're sort of a big believer in celebrating the finer points of college football that don't involve the playoff. I think most people that are Alabama fans or Georgia fans, Ohio State fans, that there's this cross section of fans of college football that are in it to win national titles. And I get that. But it's also about a group of people, a kid ex stadium turning around to wave at sick children. That's also what college football is about. And I think trying to find the balance between those two things, maybe that's a Kentucky team that gets into the playoff as a 12 seed. Sure, they're not going to win the national championship, but we celebrate that Kentucky team for the next 50 years, right? Yeah, this is, by the way, a lot like being a Leicester City fan. Like, okay, they want a title once. That's it. That might be your whole career, the electricity fan. That's what you do. It's like being the fan of a small market team in the MBA. If you make it out of the first round of the playoffs, hey, that's your whole year. I think it's much less me saying, wow, what a great system. What a fantastic sport. I think it is a great sport. I think it's a terrible system. It's also as terrible as a lot of the way we've organized the sport before. The little dude was never had a chance for this sport, especially within the last day, 60 to 75 years. But they've managed to cope and find ways to enjoy the game. You know, enjoy the occasional conference title you get. That's just a matter of what kind of fan you want to be. I can only explain the way that the powers that be are probably going to build this system. Spencer hall joining us here every day should be Saturday on the Paul 5 mom show brayden gall in here, which brings us, of course, the Cincinnati. And I think that they have some unique pieces that will challenge Alabama, but in the grand scheme of things, when you talk about the little guy not having a chance, aren't you talking about Alabama Cincinnati? Pretty much. I think Cincinnati is the best possible model of that team. And maybe in 9 out of ten matchups, Alabama wins the Cincinnati polls one. You're really hoping to see that 10%. You're hoping to see a very good symptomatic team that honestly, if you talk about playing as a team and playing within a system, they're a better team than Alabama. Well, who plays as a team better? It's demonstrably Cincinnati. However, the outstanding talent at certain positions across the board, there isn't a position at Cincinnati where you would say, I would take that guy over X on Alabama. If you did, you lying. You take the Alabama dude. Every single time. Am I going to take the whole? I mean, maybe if you said who's playing better as a team, but frankly, if it comes down to a one possession game, do you have any confidence that anybody on that team could stir Bryce young in the pocket with those lineman blocking for him? And prevent the ball from getting to jamison Williams for a small down the field. I don't. That's an ATM. Go ahead, hit it up, hit it up all day. Jason Williams will be open. Yeah, no, unfortunately, I tend to agree with you. I do think Cincinnati if they were matched up with a Georgia or a Michigan, would give them an interesting test. I think Bama with the Williams young combination is uniquely qualified to beat Cincinnati and also beat Georgia. Ten days, whatever two weeks, three weeks removed from that SEC championship game. I don't need time as a flat circle Spencer. Now that you've had some time to digest that and do an autopsy on George's performance, do you have any insight as to what took place in that game? Yeah, one quarterback is better than the other. That is not an insult to set to benefit. That's just fact. The position where the guy types of the ball every single down for Alabama is better than the guy who touches the ball every single possession for Alabama. That is no insult. This has been Ben. Who I think has been really, really good for them. Throughout the year. He's not. Fresh onto that defense what no one else has. No one, don't get close to doing that. No one can close to doing half that. Again that defense. So I can't that's not me saying that's not me insulting death and but in belief, but if it comes down to those two teams playing each other and I have to go point for point and say, well, where is there a weakness? Where is there a serious advantage? That's it. And that's the worst place to have it for Georgia, right? That's the worst place for Alabama to have it because that's the person who can do the most damage to them. Spencer hall joining us. Do you believe we saw Kirby smart in Georgia.

But <Speech_Male> in this movie, he <Speech_Male> plays the <Speech_Male> chef at the <Speech_Male> castle and <Speech_Male> he's <Speech_Male> just very pleasant. <Speech_Male> It was a nice <Speech_Male> view of <Speech_Male> an actor that I've <Speech_Male> slowly grown to really appreciate, <Speech_Male> but when she would get <Speech_Male> more chances to do different <Speech_Male> stuff. I think he's <Speech_Male> unfortunately <Speech_Male> saddled with one of <Speech_Male> the most terrifying <Speech_Male> voices speaking <Speech_Male> voices I've ever heard. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> sort of <Speech_Male> a tenuous <Speech_Male> ally figure.

But <Speech_Male> he seems <SpeakerChange> to be the other <Speech_Female> person that she really <Speech_Female> respects. Yeah, I think <Speech_Female> that's true. And I think <Speech_Female> how you <Speech_Female> feel about <Speech_Female> the <Speech_Female> way that this movie <Speech_Female> deals with food <Speech_Female> is going to <Speech_Female> be how you feel <Speech_Female> about the movie. <Speech_Female> Because <Speech_Female> if <Speech_Female> like Kristen, you <Speech_Female> find everything to be <Speech_Female> way too <Speech_Female> blunt, <Speech_Female> then that opening <Speech_Female> sequence with the <Speech_Female> military precision <Speech_Female> of the food setup is <Speech_Female> gonna seem <Speech_Female> kind of hopelessly <Speech_Female> overblown and <Speech_Female> way too on the <Speech_Female> nose, <Speech_Female> whereas if you're like me <Speech_Female> and you <Speech_Female> enjoy that bluntness <Speech_Female> as bigness, <Speech_Female> then the <Speech_Female> way that they deal <Speech_Female> with her disordered <Speech_Female> eating <Speech_Female> the way they deal <Speech_Female> with her <Speech_Female> fear of being weighed <Speech_Female> on these scales <Speech_Female> that they have, which apparently <Speech_Female> the scales <Speech_Female> are a real thing. <Speech_Female> Supposedly, yeah.

"All the stages and points of her life and say this happened, then this happened and this happened. Camilla Parker Bowles is very much a figure in this story because she's very Diane is very aware of her and very aware of this relationship that Charles has with her, but they didn't really explain. I don't think they even say her name. They don't really say who she is. They kind of assume that you know that. They kind of assume that you know where Diana is in her life at this point where she's already been beloved and is kind of facing this ultimate tragic end. Like I was glad that there wasn't like a closing caption that was like, of course, she died, not that long after. You know, I felt like that was a good thing. I do want to talk a little bit more about Kristen Stewart. To me, you know, one of the things that was difficult for me about Jackie was I think Natalie Portman's impression of Jackie Kennedy was very accurate and I absolutely give her full points for what I think was an effort to just down to the breath trying to capture the way Jackie Kennedy spoke. And yet, to me, it was incredibly distracting. Yes. And it was the only thing I could pay attention to in that movie. I do think Stuart makes a good decision here. There's one moment early on when she goes into this little cafe, looking for directions. And everybody looks at her and she does that little eyes down, smile, that Diana often did. And in that moment she looks so much like Diana to me, then it kind of welded them together. I mean, obviously she's speaking in an accent. I think the accents roughly correct, although yes, she's an American doing a British accent. You don't have to at me. It's not perfectly correct. But after that, I don't think they're trying to do as spot on either of an impression of Diana or of a recreation of reality the way that Jackie recreates so carefully those like black and white videos of the Christmas tour and all that stuff that is in Jackie. Where do you guys come down on Jackie and Diana in that kind of comparison? I like Jackie, but not as much as other people did. I think I also found Natalie Portman's acting in it a little distracting. I think part of that is because I don't think Jackie Kennedy really spoke like any other person in human existence. And so, you know, I think Kristen Stewart's performance is much more down to earth. Even if this movie is not quite realistic, I think it is a more holy embodied person..

"And I think those kinds of things to me are very effective, and it didn't bother me that it's not, it's definitely not realistic at all. And I think, you know, I would go farther than to say, I think it's clearly almost completely not true with the exception of the broadest strokes of how this marriage played out. I think some royal watchers have sort of said, there is no such Christmas when all these things would be happening when all of this would make sense, particularly not even her hair wasn't even like that at the time that this would have been happening. She would have already cut her air. So I think it's not real, but I liked that it wasn't real. Yeah, I think that makes it holy fabricated in an interesting way that it's completely an invention of the screenwriter. It's funny that you bring up a couple of symbols and then I have a different list of totally different symbols that it's just like an inexhaustive list. But you know, one of the first things you see in this movie is a sign that says keep noise to a minimum they can hear you. And the opening shots of this movie look like a military invasion where the British royal guard or whatever is bringing in food for this Christmas. And you sort of get the sense that this is like an inhospitable environment for anyone to live in, especially someone who is not a part of the family by blood and was not raised in it. That's sort of heavy handedness. I thought, was befitting the tone of the movie. And yes, I really think that she does come across as a horror heroin. It's a good, it's a good take on it. But can I say horror comedy maybe? Because I was actually laughing out loud at certain moments here, partly because it's so heavy handed, but, you know, partly because, you know, Diana is so unhinged and the way she is depicted as unhinged is sometimes just so over the top. Who can forget that moment in the movie? She's at the dinner table. She's eating her own pearls after ripping them off her neck. The music is getting louder and wilder and louder and wilder, while she's looking around and the camera's moving in and out. And then the camera pulls back and we actually see the music is live next to the 50 foot dinner table. There's a string Quartet. I was so funny. There were moments like that where I was just like, I can't tell is that supposed to be a horror comedy. I agree with you when you sort of think you're getting horror movie music and that it turns out that it's live. You can laugh at that. That's almost like it could be airplane or something like that. I totally had the same reaction, but it worked for me because it's all the same movie. Maybe with the exception of one very late scene between her and Sally Hawkins, it didn't strike me that it really had any moments that were meant to be straightforward closely observed drama. It felt to me like it was all supposed to be big. That Timothy spall character to me is not only is he like a horror movie figure who seems like he could be about to throw you in the dungeon, but he also to me comes.

"Joining me is Kristen mines are she is the co host of the podcast movie therapy with rafer and Kristen. She's also a royal watcher and co host of the podcast when Meghan met Harry. What a set of credentials. Welcome back, Kristen. Thanks so much for having me back Linda. And also with us, this is always so exciting, making his pop culture happy hour debut. Is Danny hensel, Danny is a producer at NPR's weekend edition. Welcome. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. This is very, very exciting. So Spencer is one of those films. It entered a lot of people's field the vision I would say because of casting news that Kristen Stewart was going to play Diana. But just as significant is the fact that the director here is Pablo Lorraine, who, among other things directed Jackie a few years ago, so he knows his way around a famous actress tackling a tragic woman from history. The screenplay here is by Stephen knight, and the basic story is an imagined one with the on screen type calls a fable about Diana's spending Christmas with the royal family while she and Charles were separated, but before they were divorced. So she's in this very big house on the royal estate. She's out of favor with everybody. She's really only there for her kids who are somewhere around 8 and ten at this point. I would say, the cast includes Timothy spall as a very, very scary guy who works for the queen and Sally Hawkins as one of the royal dressers who's just about the only person Diana trusts Danny, I want to ask you, how did you react to this somewhat unusual movie? I really liked it. I've been a bit out on Paolo Lorraine's last couple of movies. You know, I like them, but sort of at a distance. And I think this is the first one that I've really liked. I think it kind of struck the right balance of having a distinct style, having something to say that I found interesting and also being pretty accessible. I liked that framing of it being a fable, not everything you're seeing is quite realistic, but it's going to tell you a story. It'll be a little bit didactic, but as long as you're sort of up for that, maybe blunt use of storytelling technique, then I think you're on board for the ride. And I think Kristen Stewart is really, really good. Always sort of admired her as an actress, but I've never quite see her do something this transformative in a way that did not really feel like an impression, but really felt like she was totally embodying a different person. Yeah. All right, Kristen, you have spent a lot of time as a royal watcher. You pay a lot of attention to this family. How did this strike you? Well, I just want a second two things that Danny said there. Yes, Kristen Stewart is fantastic in this movie. And even before the movie came out, you know, those stills that were initially released, I thought, yes, she is the right person to play this role in this movie..

But you didn't get it or oh honey this. The absolute i have always been obsessed with kevin costner I he's one of those actors that i've seen everything he's done and how high played so many nurses in in in hollywood that there was a movie that he did call dragonfly and there is a nurse it was a a doctor and his wife was killed in a foreign country and he had to go he was going back to get her remains and found out that he literally had a child that you know he didn't know about and It was so amazing and they brought me back so many times to play his nurse. Who had all these things with kevin and it was after the fifth time thing i have it i have it. I honestly thought in those har- films when people are so afraid or they're so angst ridden that they're in the shower and they're just so upset that they cry and slide down the back of the shower. I when i found out. I didn't get that part i was like okay. Okay take a shower. And as i'm in the shower live down the back long. And what pulled me out of guys were pulled me out of it. Is that my towel. Got stuck in the drain and literally. The water was rising up and it snapping out of it because it was about to overflow a full time.

Shawn's one of his books from the back that he hasn't read And say what was your worst casting nightmare that you were witnessed to man worst impair like like cringe-worthy where you're just felt like. Oh gosh i wish i was while you're thinking of when i have one i. I played the piano for dishes for musicals. And i play the piano for anne right for all the kids coming in to audition and to play. I play tomorrow over and over again right and there's a song called. There's a song called. i know i'm going to like it here. do you know that's on. I know i'm gonna like it here. In the whole the the beat right and this girl comes in and she says she stands there and she goes counts the numbers under her breath while she's holding the note so she goes. I know i'm gonna like gets here to the her highs as she must have been like six years old so i wish i would have seen you back sean. What let me know. What was the hair strategy when you were playing piano and auditions. My hair strategy was just cut as close to a bowl as i possibly. Could you abol cut absolutely how. How much were you giving to the company. The dep that made depp gel. How much money your money. I know lori l. spritz loyal sports all the way and what about moose what happened to move where did hold didn't hold. Did it wait so so so so so we we've gone through the thing so so then so you working in casting. What's the moment is one of those great miracle stories. Are you reading and the directors there and says hang on a second. The reader is the best actor. We've had in here today. Is that what happened. Please tell me what happened. It made me want to act because on most of the jobs that we worked on whenever we doing this smaller roles director would say you know. I i want somebody with a personality or david. So i would always eat offered these parts and i would politely turn down because i was a professional. I couldn't mix it up. I mean what you more. Well exactly what do you call that. Yes sexy indifference sexy indifference. Yeah so i'll bet you having seen everyone come through the door it It made you feel a little bit more confident Each time you were on the other side right because you know the the the imagination goes to a place where like everybody is better than me. in in general in life but then when you see people come through like oh i can compete with that you know. I wish more actors could be on the other side and see that. You're plenty talented honey. I have to tell you that. I would recommend it but now with everything being the way that it is. People are putting themselves on tape and won't ever get that experience but totally demystified. What happened in the room for me. So i i would say to anybody that can help cast a student film just to see what different actors do. Because here's the interesting thing when it's written out in the breakdown in the script enough description all of that people come in and a lot of people make the exact same choice. Because it's it's worded that such and such does this. We're looking for a thirty to forty year old. Who has this well heights and weight or whatever and this look and it has to act this way to fulfil that instead of just bringing themselves. They're unique quality of choice. Make a choice. And i i find myself sometimes. I thinking when. I'm reading something now to make sure to make choices that it may be maybe wrong choice but just to have something completely unique that no one else will do you own that you're able to to to execute. Yeah now. when is the last time you auditioned Oh man it's it's been. I feel like every day dishes honestly but it's been it's been ten years. I'm going to start making choices. Like imagine a scene where you've got to deliver some bad news. But i'm just like well. We just got the report back. It looks like i'm not gonna who different. There's a song from les mis hold on. That's called empty chairs empty tables where my friends are dead and gone and you just think with a huge smile on my face. So wait octavia. You said casting made want to start acting. You had no interest before that and you just got that as a job or what was it like as a kid. Well i always wanted to be a producer honestly and i love acting but you know. I'm from a very practical household. And my mom would have been supportive actor but You know she really liked. Wanted me to be a doctor or a lawyer. And i'm a germaphobe so i knew doctoring was not in my future because everything anybody came into the room with. I would probably didn't get it your home. I got catching salesman sean. Just describing describe it. And i get it. You know you're talking to a couple of world class djerma folks. Here with me so octavia. What's tell me your. Let's let's let's let's open up.

What will you not do because there's too much germ potential most start with mine. Uh so you know what i'm talking about. I will never walk barefoot on a hotel floor. Look good ever ever. I will never go to very famous. Theme parks Do you want even entered the grounds. I don't think i need to go. Got it That's aggressive octavia. I will never sit at a on a plane without wiping. And i've been doing this year's wipe it everything down so definitely the headrest right. Yeah ooh head resident anything that my hand has to touch has to be wiped down the seat crack button. You gotta really get that one touch point touch point. I will never. I will never have gazpacho soup in october after october. Now barry won't do it even now. No even if i'm even if i am in the south of france do it even be know what you gotta do. Is you got to do because it's cold. So all the bacteria can lip hano. This is more. No it's just more out of a sense of decency. Yeah now so. I wipe down the plane i wipe down the planes the seats to as well. That's that's kind of a newer thing to me. I remember like january twenty twenty. I flew to london right before the lockdown. And i went back and i looked at my Search retirement search history before. I looked at my Amazon order history ordered masks in january. Twenty twenty. I was so nervous about everything coming to re seeing on the news and had to fight london and i wiped my area down and wore a mask and everybody looked at me like i was like look at this nut job..
"spencer" Discussed on Software Engineering Daily
"Happens in those things have when one thing stops working well or at all things start to pile up behind it and it starts to take down other systems if cascading impacts the only way to solve for that fundamentally is you've got to run the full-scale outage test and you have to do it on a with some degree of periodic frequency otherwise he you know whatever you build the complexity quickly goes beyond your last test and you probably introduced another area another failure point so maybe that i hope i answered the question there but i think there's there's a world that that two hundred thousand and twenty six timeframe where there's really good stacks that help people manage that complexity and still get the kind of survivability across the whole complex architecture that they're looking for you use these vendors you connect them in these ways even things like Low code platforms that are hosting many different applications. That do lots of different things but all on the same architecture that could be like a really like a monoculture that fails together but also. It's more likely that you can use the economies of scale of having that one platform host many use cases to do the right kind of testing so that all of the use cases survive when you have one of these major Systemic failures so listen. That's i think where a lot of the interesting work remains to be done in terms of proving out the the potential for a lot of these technology something as simple as wrath right but its underlying so much now in the larger ecosystem. And then i think now the thing you have to turn your attention to is the various layers above rat that become increasingly complex. How do these complex systems interact in practice. And what happens if you have these major failures. All right we're up against time just to close off. You are definitely running. One of the most successful infrastructure companies that have been started in the last Six or seven years. Gimme a few intuitive lessons. You've learned about building a successful infrastructure company in this era. I don't know if this is counterintuitive but by far the most difficult scaling problem is engineers engineering talent and it feels like it's only becoming harder and so i say that that's probably a a good signal that if you're thinking about a career choice becoming a software engineer is not a bad way to go suspect. Most of the people listening. This blog already made that choice. This podcast so you know that's good. It's good for the future of our industry. I think counterintuitive. Let me think about that. Well here's one for you. When i started this company. I never thought of myself as being interested in building technology then had to be sold to big. You know i guess stereotypically slow moving enterprise companies. Choose your global two thousand and fortune. Five hundred company. It felt like oh my god. The amount of came from google google engineers internally. There's very fast moving. You could have very sharp edges the idea that okay. We're going to help modernize help the digital transformation these big businesses. That felt like. I can't believe on doing this. Because that's going to be something. I enjoy and it turns out that is incredibly enjoyable. So it's sort of. I think other half of what the challenges and the excitement is actually getting these big customers and making them successful so that Just from a pure technologists perspective has been a surprise for me. And i'd say that's been one of the most rewarding parts of the journey that we've been accompanying in me personally as a as an engineer and and also as a ceo. Spencer thanks for coming on the show. Great talking it's been my pleasure. Thank you jeffrey..

"spencer" Discussed on How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along
"With joe biden sitting above a fifty percent approval rating and the republican party. Still split between the maga- wing and the blue bloods who built the party. Do republicans really have and electoral future in the twenty. Twenty s perhaps pragmatism and practicality. Are the answers. Perhaps both parties seem to be moving towards the extremes but do either of the parties have a route to reclaiming the center. Republicans might but the party can't seem to get past the frenzied rumors of deep state machinations to solve the problems that a real difference to the majority of voters are we doomed to hear more sturm and drang about crises and cultural issues rather than solutions the host of practically political the very pragmatic republican and rockefeller air. David spencer is politicains guests this week and he joins us to look at how we can all become stakeholders in our shared futures. I'll ask him. How the heck are we going to get along are you. Where are you in california. Where are you. Where are you based in california. Just as just south of san francisco in hillsborough. Yeah okay. how do you and you are my good friend. Podcast good friend carey. Sheffield to yeah. Yeah yeah i've been you know we've been trying to launch our practically political podcast and she's been really helpful and kind of a mentor and someone i really get along with and so she very kindly has my name onto you folks and so. I'm happy to be here. You know there aren't. There aren't many people that have my perspective people. Are i guess. Michael steele is probably the closest but yeah so who says. Who's a true rockefeller republican. Who's trying to save the party. Not just acquiesce she. I don't know many people who don't get along with kerry kerry not disagree on a whole bunch but we she is just one of the sweetest people and so helpful and so smart and on it so when she when she texted the other day and said oh you need to talk to my friend dave immediate. That same day. I talked to our producers and said. Let's let's see if we can get him on because what you're trying to do is something you're right. Not many republicans are doing right now. I mean there seemed to be i guess. Three camps of republicans from my perspective. And you are. Are you still on the california republican party committee executive committee. I'm not on the executive committee but you're still a member of the party. Yeah yes. I've been registered as republican since i was able to vote for ronald reagan. My first election okay. So you well. That's a very different republican party back than it isn't ronald. Reagan kicked out of the republican party on his dare year. So when i hear. Ted cruz waxed. Oh attic about. Ronald reagan's forgive me for not taking you sit there. Are there sort of three buckets. At least from my perspective from the other side of the aisle there are republicans who have completely gone in full bore with the new. I mean i hate to say it but the new republican brand which is which seems to be very trump trump tastic so to speak and then there and then there are folks who are not who used the word republican in their bio but for for pretty much every other thing they do. They have abandoned the republican party both in votes in name and in ideal. I think of on off the top of my head. I'm thinking people like ana navarro who you know. Obviously big supporter of the bush. Campaign's both jeb. And george. But now on. The view tends to agree with democrats even on policy more than anything else. Nicole wallace. Who helped the john john mccain campaign worked for george bush not very aligned with anything. That's conservative anymore and. There's this really really small. Small small bucket of folks. And i consider michael steele to be a good example of that Meghan mccain to be a good friend of mine to be a good example of that and it sounds like what you're trying to do. Maybe liz cheney is also a good example of that. We've seen in the past few past few months of people who are still republicans and still conservatives but don't have time for the the is it a rebranding that the party has gone through right now. I mean they're very few people who have been able to stay true to their republican principles principles while also distancing themselves from the other knickknack. Patty that's going on in the party. Well i think that's true. And i would say clay rebranding almost be complementary because rebranding means that. You have something to sell a question that i asked so many people is what does the republican party stanford. Today i other than a vessel for the special interest of corporations are wealthy donors and i think that was one of the great tragedies of the trump era irrespective of what you think of the former president was so many principals like free trade like sensibly immigration like a consistent china policy like a strong russia policy like alliance base foreign policy. The list goes on and on fiscal discipline. Now in his defense that went out the window long before he arrived but so many of the sir traditional republican principles have been just jettison that so my question is yes this because of democratic fecklessness which you can always count on. That's all i mean. Don't get me started on that but yes this strategy may work. You may be able to win in twenty two. You may be able to win twenty four Though that's going to be harder. But i think what the party is basically saying. Is we have to do everything. We can to preserve white minority rule so to build on in terms of what you were saying about the types of republicans. I think to be a republican. Now you don't have to promulgate the big lie you just. Don't you have to not disavow it. And you have to be on board with all these voting laws and i use that term. Kindly that are being passed in all these states. Okay so so. I wanna i wanna get you to help me answer that question about what the republicans stand for and i want to also answer. What the what you believe where you feel the democrats what they stand for now and figure out if really there is middle if there's if there's some kasim in the middle that's not being covered so i mean if you were to ask people.
