James Kunstler Talks About Growing Up in NYC
"Life, you grew up because this is part of the important background. You grew up in New York City. Did you not talk about that a little bit? Because it just fascinates me. The idea of at that time being a kid running around New York City. Well, it's a little more complicated. I actually spent the age ages between 5 years and 8 years old in the Long Island suburbs. And those are probably the best times to be in the suburbs because you don't need that much to be connected with adult life because you could never really process it at that age. But I moved one of my parents got divorced. I moved into Manhattan and I was really at large in that city. That was the day when parents did not quite control their kids the way they have lately. And you know, I was at liberty in New York City. I could go where I wanted to go. The museums were free back then, you know? The Metropolitan Museum of Art had not become another form of showbiz. You know, the planetarium may be cost 50 cents, but the rest of the museum of natural history was frit. And the Staten Island ferry costs 5 cents. I had no reason to go to Staten Island, but it was a fun ride to take. You know, across New York City harbor. And I did all those kinds of things. By the time I was 9 years old, I was going up to Yankee Stadium by myself and sitting in the bleachers for 50 cents. And it wasn't difficult. No. Are you sure? Okay. I think so. I got that through that experience, all right. I must say that as

"Wow. Geez. Total. Brutal. Wow. I always forget. I always forget that Staten Island racism is like the major leagues and I feel like what I grew up in Ohio, it's like minor leagues, you know what I'm saying? Because that's straight up like hate crime language, you know? Like, where I grew up, they were like, your eyes are funny. That's some triple-A Columbus clippers kind of shit. You know, this is New York Yankees racism. And that's really sad. They're like, you know, you don't learn that in middle school. It is not a class for that. They're getting it from their parents. And so yeah, it was a lot of that. And that stuff exists today. Still, I was driving around yesterday. There was a little table set up where it looks like in front of a CVS where it looks like where someone would be selling girl scout cookies. And when we got closer, there was a big sign that said, let's go Brandon. And they were selling, let's go Brandon flies and stuff. Yeah. And it's still happening. But growing up, it was just, you know, it was like fully Italian Irish. I would lie and say that I was part Sicilian because sicilians are dark or dark. There you go. There you go. I think that I think that's a good strategy. I would buy that too. You do have, you know, did you grow, how early did you start growing a mustache? Because I feel that also kind of helps, huh? No, that was just like two years ago. But I did have a haircut. Yeah. Okay, okay. What's the stud island haircut? Is that like the Pauly D list? The Pauly D for shaved and gel. Like a gold chain and everything like to try to blend in or anything like that. It was silver, silver, yes, but at the place where I got my hair cut also after 6 p.m. they would start playing pornos on the theater. I just love that. I'm just like, it's like 5 58, and they're like, guys, come on, let's get classy, okay? Yeah, yeah, the crazy anal porn stuff would start. I heard that there were actually like a decent amount of Asians in Staten Island, because June thong is from there. Is there not like a Korean population in there? Because of Staten Island tech and some of the better schools out there. I did go to Staten Island tech. There you go. Yeah. And yeah, there were a fair amount of Asians outside on tech, but that's because that school like people from all over the island go to that school. But where I grew up on the south shore state island, it's all Italian and Irish. That's it. So I didn't meet another Asian person until high school pretty much. Wow, wow. Wow. Wow. I mean, so I have to this kind of begs the question. Okay, you're filippino and Jewish. You're a cute little kid, okay? Real cool. I can't believe you. You're a door. But he's taken ladies, but ladies. But I want to say, why did your parents go there? How good are these real estate prices? If they're like, you know what? Hate crimes are worth it, you know, for a three bedroom? Are you kidding me? I'm in there, you know? That's a good question. I need to ask my mom that. My dad lived in Brooklyn and my mom who came here as a nurse in 86 or something. And they met. And then they had got pregnant with me and then moved to Staten Island. I think maybe just like, you know, we don't wanna raise it. It's a crazy social experiment of just like, let's try to raise the toughest kid in the world. Well, you know, I don't think that mixed race parents like, especially in the 80s, we're not prepared for any of this, you know? There was no guide to how to talk about this with your kids, and I did not get that I definitely did not get that talk. And I think that's what I've been unpacking as an adult is like, okay, yeah, when I have kids like we gotta figure this out because you know, it was just like such shame and lying and everything. And trying to manage how I'm presenting myself to different people, because of where I grew up. And I'm sure you grew up in a white neighborhood too, right? So I'm sure to some extent you were trying to code switch. Oh, 100%. Yeah, yeah. I mean, you know, it's the reason why I played lacrosse. I mean, why? I'm a 120 pounds. Why would I play lacrosse across the equivalent? That's the Ohio equivalent of saying your Sicilian, you know? Don't worry. You know where I can play lacrosse. Okay. Okay, that's weird. Okay. I think you said in a podcast or maybe like interview or something you feel more culturally Italian because where do you grow up? But is that something that you're trying to analyze and not embrace as much now that you're 30s and you're trying to because I feel a lot of people who grew up in that kind of environment? We come out as Asian in our 30s. You know what I mean? And do you still feel that way about being more culturally Italian? Oh, no. I do not feel that way. I like to say that I became Italian through osmosis, just from. Yeah, I think going down that route and just like being friends with white people and all that shit like led me to bad depression and all that shit that comes with suppressing your identity. And similar to you fu me, I studied accounting and finance and worked at a big fork accounting firm after college..

"Yeah, I get it. Do you still have your bedroom and everything? That is all. This is a different house. But I happen to happen to be in the closet where my mom stuffed all the shit that my brother and I didn't want to get rid of, but she doesn't want in the house. So it's got like all of our baseball jerseys, all of our old stuff are comic books like everything that we refuse to throw out, but she wants to get rid of. I always feel that my mom will no matter what the occasion that I came home for. It's like, oh, my grandfather just passed away or it's somebody's wedding or whatever. My mom will always stick in what I call the task. Something she's saved for me. That's dirty. Like a dirty job that she's like, Mike. I know you're wearing a tuxedo right now for your sister's wedding. But we need to clear out all these leaves now. You know, it's been two years. And it's like, mom, are you serious?

I assume you're there for the holiday, but you know, tell your tell the fans because we can see where you are. It looks like you're in some sort of bunker. But you're at your mom's house and you're in Staten Island where you grew up. I am in Staten Island where I grew up, not my favorite place in the world. Do you really mean that? Because I think a lot of people say that about their hometown because it's racist or problematic, but is that a love hate thing or do legit? Not like it. I mean, you know, like any hometown, you find the things that you like, which is mostly food here. There's great Italian food. There's great pizza and there's great Ralph Ralph's Italian ices. The fucking rules. But you know, everything else I could lose, honestly. You need like three things. Yeah. You're like more cruel than God, you know? He's like, okay, and we'll build an arc in pizza, ice and nothing else. Everybody else fuck off, you know? Right. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm not the only one. I'm a Filipino Jewish guy from Staten Island. Like Pete Davidson has once said that he wished Staten Island with wash away in a flood, which did not go over well here, but it's not people who grew up here, either they stay here, and this is their favorite place in the world, and they put up a blue lives matter flag all around the neighborhood. Wow. Well, just so like our fans can get to near a little bit. We had Peter rival on a couple months ago and he's a white guy who represents that one. So he gave us a little background about that. But can you just tell us real quick? What was it like growing up in stat land? I was like a Filipino Jewish dude. Yeah. I mean, you know, honestly, it was bad, but the Jewish side was like just as bad as the other side, like really? Really? Like, there was like hardcore anti sanitation here. It was once there was one kid who was like half Italian and half Jewish. And I remember in middle school, the kids would beat him up and then say, there's no way you're half Italian, you have Jewish because they wouldn't mix the best race with the.

"On Asian crime, Asian Asian crime dude. Asian not Asian. But also kind of your fault because you wanted that pho. You actually did think that. Maybe this is all my fault.

Because my fam because of how my family rolls, okay? And how it is whenever somebody wants one thing, you gotta order for everybody. So she orders a false that's like 15 gallons of broth, you know?

I'm literally imagining you like your mom is telling you this story. Yeah, it's like. Yeah, yeah, we got past the pasta sriracha. Oh yeah, oh, it's so sad, so sad, but totally worth it. Anyways, that was a victim Asian. How about you? What kind of were you this week? This week I was a white guy Asian man. I'm also a white guy. Sometimes sometimes I be white guy Asians. Sometimes you be. Sometimes you be white guy. It's tough, man. I think I was a white guy Asian once. I think I talked about this on a podcast. So what do we want? You're like whole life is that? Well, today, okay, so something has been happening in my brain where because part of my job is to write these monologue jokes for middle of America and my life jokes are like just by definition. It's like a little vanilla, you know, you can't be too crazy. Gotta be accessible. Yeah. Just just by definition it's that way. It's got to work. Right. And it's really not my style of comedy. And I think over the last 6 months or so, I've trained myself to write better malloc jokes for the American middle American family and when I tap into that energy. Sometimes I feel like there's another writer inside of my brain. I call them Jeff Meyers. He's just like, he's like a white guy from Ohio and sometimes I'll write something, and I'm like, I didn't write that. Jeff Mays wrote that. I was looking at the outline that we had for today and then you had wrote in down Jeff Myers. And I was like, oh, this means some new comic. I've never heard of it. I was like looking them up. And I was like trying to find Jeff Meyers. And I was like, this is nothing. This is leading me to a whole bunch of barbecue blogs and you know, you know how Beyoncé has such a fears. I have Jeff Meyers. This guy's got cargo shorts on, man. Hell yeah, dude. Bro so okay, so I wrote this joke that I was like, I didn't even think it was that funny, but it got written up on The New York Times. Oh shit. And this is the joke. And I was so. I mean, it's like the joke is whatever, but I was like, sometimes I feel I'm like, I'm losing myself during the show because I'm Jeffrey. Jeff Meyers wrote it bro. Okay, this was the joke. Okay, the premise is Biden is having a meeting with Justin Trudeau and the president of Mexico. And this is true. He's calling it the three amigos summit. That's what he's calling it. That's the premise. And my joke was, which is still better than what Biden wanted to call it originally, which is meeting la Vida loca. That was the Jeff Meyers written all over the Seth Meyers. That's not a fool me Alvin, okay? And sometimes I have these moments where I think of these jokes, and I'm like, you know, last week we were talking about off brand jokes, like jokes that you come up with and you're like, oh I never said that. I would never. Yeah, I so like I've been having these Jeff Meyers. Sometimes Jeff Meyers takes over. And it's like a scary thing. This is also another Jeff Meyers joke that came into my head the other day. Somebody was talking about, somebody was asking me what mangosteen was. You know, mangosteen is? No. It sounds really familiar. What is that? Mango, it's a Southeast Asian fruit. It's like a cousin of and somebody was like, somebody was like, what's mangosteen? And Jeff Meyers in my head was like, mangosteen is like mango, but it's Jewish. And I was like, no, that's not a food. That's a Jeff Meyer joke. You know what I'm saying? That's one of Jeff Meyers is more edgy jokes, too. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you better Jewish fellow once when he went to Philly and he's like, he's like, they're a nice people, you know? Yeah. But I get scared, I get scared when Jeff comes out sometimes, you know? Because I sometimes I feel like I'm losing myself. I'm losing myself to jail. You ever watch a venom? You ever watch that movie? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, it's terrible. But he's also symbiote. He's got this inboard, who's like, yeah, he's like, telling him to eat livers. You got Jeff Meyers and Jeff Meyers. Come on, man, come on. Go to, go, come on, get a course like. Getting your Coors light. Yeah. So anyways, that was a white guy agent this week. And I would love to ask our guest. What kind of Asian he was this week? Our guest this week, we're so excited to have him. He is an award winning writer and comedian.

Please welcome to the show. The hilarious Mark Kramer. For Kramer. How are you guys? How good man? Yeah. Yeah, we're getting victimized and we're having a good time, fucking becoming Mars is here. Your Myers is here? The sad thing is that Jeff Meyers is like infinitely more hirable than you for me. You just sent out you can have you should have a Jeff Meyer's resume, you know? That you stepped out, you know? That's good. That's good. I should have, I should have a separate like notepad for Jeff Meyers jokes. And we should have a segment on the show called white guy jokes. And we should just tell. Yes. I love renaming the show like Jeff Meyers, not Jeff Meyers. Mark, you heard what kind of Asians we were this week. What kind of Asian were you this week mark? Yeah, I have been a teenager, Asian this week. Hey. Hell yeah. I am currently this is day three of me back on Staten Island at my mom's house, recording from her guest room closet. Wow. I don't know if you guys feel this way, but whenever you're back home visiting your parents, you get in this mode where you're like, a kid again, and they treat you like a 32 year old guy at a professional cavity writer anymore. And they just argue over every little thing again, like you when you were kids. You let her cook meals for you all the time, which is great. My mom's great. It's just a matter of this is like back. You shrink back to who you are again. You are..

We had a little back and forth banter. Going before the podcast. So i think we're going to have a little fun today. Dave we doing. It's awesome to be here. James and it's awesome to be warm you doing well. It's ask it's awesome to be here and it's not what he's he opened up. The opening bali was. What does that. you're wearing a vest. I don't wear vests these down in saint petersburg florida and i'm up here freezing my butt off in staten island new york. So you know. I've i've actually spent a bit of time down in florida. I was on the east coast. And i did some investing in north palm beach and singer island. Excuse me singer island. What's the market like down there today. Florida like every player in the country's booming it's all just booming a relative term no You know what is someone's entry point for mom-and-pop real estate is another person's palace and so it's really interesting and actually a lot of our work with ten thirty one. These days is transitioning investors from these highly appreciated areas. Your neck of the woods california where there's no cash flow of able for people that want on rental real estate and cash load. But there's these knicks of the woods. Where you can still find things that are that will cash flow from florida overpriced right from california that the floor is cheap. Thinking the neighborhood right so this would be a good place for us to jump off from what i understand. You moved your family from denver to tamper using the section twenty one homestead exemption and there's a lot of folks picking up and moving from state to state today. Can you speak to the audience about twenty one home. Said yeah. Exactly so actually. That's kind of the other side of real estate and we actually used both the ten thirty one end at one twenty one so the one. Twenty-one is for the house that you live in when you buy abuse of property move into with your family and live there so that when you sell it you lived in the last five years. It has a married couple. You want to take the first five hundred thousand in profit tax free and you get a two that once every two years so when nari tells us the national association of realtors tells us that the average person stays in house five to eight years. That means that her nine times in your life you have the opportunity to sell an asset at take money tax free now best mogollon now about half a million dollar exemption. If it's your primary residence is wonderful but the on not half a million dollar exemption over your basis in profit. You're not eligible for ten thirty one correct. That is absolutely correct. Hands the other shoe. That's about to drop the ten thirty one exchange exist for investment real estate and with the thirty one you can sell investment real estate. That's highly appreciate it or that. You deeper shade a lot on your taxes by new investment real estate and you get to indefinitely deferred the payment of the tax now james. We talked about dancing girls the beginning of the show. You better have been reserved. Because if i go to my next statement with you it's going to be all over. The ice cream is off the milk. And we're gonna have to shut it down because no one's gonna listen but there is a way to combine section one twenty-one and ten thirty one if you have more than five hundred thousand dollar profit let's say you got a million dollars in profit. You could sell that and you could take your first five hundred thousand tax rate okay. Nice but no big deal day. I want to eliminate the other five thousand. So what can i do. I step move out of that property. Go by your ex partner residents right now go read a property go to home exchange for a year whatever turn that primary residence in to investment property at it a year later. You're going to sell now. You're selling and investment property. Aren't you at. That's what the law requires. Forgive thirty treatment. So you're going to do a ten thirty one exchange but you're gonna take five hundred thousand dollars if what we would call boot. Normally boot is taxable but wait. Did you also live in that property for two out of the previous five years absolutely did so the first five hundred thousand dollars is tax-free the rest of it goes a deer. Ten thirty one exchange to go buy new real estate and you've effectively deferred or eliminated a million dollars a game index.

"Get the listing build the trust deliver. PUT IT IN MLS. And it gets picked up and you find. Your listing on. A bunch of other websites. So some of the interesting things that I think toll brothers is doing this. Now with some of the bigger carriers is they're giving a key an encryption key right and when information isn't represented correctly on these bigger sites in the vein of discussing data You know we've gone through some miserable experiences trying to get some of the bigger syndication houses to get things correct and to keep the data current and to keep an accurate and then you get calls from the homeowners or the property owners furious because it looks like you're not doing your job and you certainly are. But you can't get these things changed and through these encryption keys if flip a switch and it's off, you maintain all the information, you control it and they can only syndicate what you're allowing to present forward. So what are some of the tools? What are what are some of the new ways to present data I mean what what, else outside of innovating on how the park properties presented what else can looking at? Well, obviously, we've talked a little bit about the. Video stuff and. That kind of stuff. That's that's probably the biggest key right now as that develops and gets better we'll be seen more that we're getting ready to launch in the next couple of months a A flow charting program within the laws. can we get a sneak peek on this? Can you tell us what's happening? Anyway it's pretty simple. I mean it's a it's a it's a company. That's. It's part of the system and it's you basically walk around with your cell phone around the property. Pretty simply and it just draws it draws fly for you. Now you send that you send it off you get back twenty four hours later. and it's beautiful voter. So this is similar to what? I think metaphor does something like that. Yeah. Because we we call them black line drawings. So we're producing the black lines from the Mattapoisett scanning the whole house it's basically producing a blueprint, not not like an architectural blueprint, but a a rough floor plan. So That's interesting. You know we we think that's Sure if we can get it. For a large proportion of ballistics. Got It. It's fine for one or two. But if but if you if you got it for you know sixty percent of your listings now you've got another. Different asset there. Sure right now you got it. And not all of our properties, let's let's be real that all of our properties Lend themselves to to sure report kind of sure presentation but as simple flow chart, everybody ought to know. What the flow of the property absolutely before the. So that's something that's. Almost, almost ready to watch that in the next couple of interestingly enough and I'm sure you've heard this a million times but you wouldn't think it. How many people can be looking at a seven eight, nine, hundred, million to million dollar home and say Oh this won't work my bedroom won't fit. You know it's it's like. Folks were looking at spending a million two million bucks Can we can we swap the bedroom out the furniture? But that would be very helpful. It's something that we try and encourage here through them out of port to include those drawings. But. If people had access to that on a bigger scale that I think that would make a difference. So. Where are we do you think in? Two years on Staten Island from a market perspective..

Maybe that's. Just so in tuned to my own generation. But, so those are the ultimate slackers, but clerks to deals with. Really with being stuck and. Making changes and being afraid to make changes. You know it's Dante who wants to make the changes. Its Randall, who's who's resistant, but really it's just a about. That same thing, they're not twenty four. They're supposed to be there in their thirties now, but it's that same. We need to get motivated to to get out of here. You know and. Just like in this movie there's they end up in. Trouble with the law and they realized we need to make some changes and. There, you go clerk clerks to our ultimate. Our ultimate slackers stuck getting in trouble with the law, and they need to make some changes they to make some changes of course at the end of that they end up. Staying in town and buying the. The quick stop, but because Johnson the baller randomly rich. They have money. From Selling Apparently. You know they don't exactly move move past that so again. Just like in Staten Island. Is anything changing. I don't know were stuns lacquers and were stuck so yeah clerks. That's my second. That's my second puzzle piece I. Dig it I I I. Don't remember clerks to very well. When when we did our Jay and silent Bob reboot episode, it hit you that that movie is just a straight up blur. But it sounds like what you're saying. They're a I can see some parallels for sure, and certainly they are some of our favorite cinema slackers. That is for sure and I. It's funny when it comes to the idea of like you know the slackers donor type of movie A. Part me wishes. We got more of that in this movie because we'd really don't get. That much of him and his friends or we don't really get to know any of them that well, but at the same time I. Don't the best bits are outside of that like when when we're dealing with bill Burr's character, immerse a Tomei I think that stuff is kind of better than any of the the stuff with the young people so. So. It's kind of I duNno, it's kind of pushing. pull their. Yeah, the friends, the the other slackers that are not really going anywhere I actually liked. That was like that was like that. Like slice of life part of the movie where it's like I'm getting a little window into this world of Staten Island and they were that they were the. They were that entry way. Y- liked the way of life. That is Staten Island. So I definitely liked seeing them and their outlook on things, and the way that they spoke in the way that they acted and yeah I thought they were some of the best stuff in the movie to and although. You know and None of them really seem like they were had that much motivation to get out of Staten Island? It was like one of you know one of those same situations where they're just kind of stuck in this. What although Kelsey the female she she wanted to make. She wants to stay in Staten Island and and change it may. Make Staten Island Williamsburg which is a little weird because I'm guessing, so she wants rich white hipsters to move in and drive rent prices up, so her friends can't live there anymore. And then have condos get built for Manhattan nights looking to start a family across the water I. That doesn't really sound like the best solution to me, but you know. Go Go, Kelsey. Yeah at least she has a dream at least you. So, actually, the talking about the friends, the stone irs the little crew of misfits. I tried not to always. Talk about a director's previous work as a puzzle piece, but I did WANNA. Bring up knocked up. Yep. I thought knocked up is the closest comparison to a previous appetite movie partially because of that Group of friends I think. That is like the most similar. Seconds in movies. That's right. That's right until they're introduced. Mr Skin which has existed for years. Yeah, no, that very much felt like the same, not the same group of friends, but that Group of friends for Twenty Twenty Staten Island whatever that is apparently if that's what. People are like they're than that's I I'm going to I'm going along with what the movie is telling me you know, but it's that same group for that time, and then also the main characters you know growing up in that whole thing trying to rise to the occasion of you know maybe getting out of the whole arrested development thing so but I think I think it's definitely the closest comparison within the jet APO. Oeuvre. For sure for sure one hundred percent, and that's his like group that he allows it just improperly into goofy stuff. and it works with Steiner's. Apt Good on Ya until you. You tricked all of their filmmakers. Into thinking they could also just let people Improv in riff and make movie. I wonder how familiar! Apple Tom I'm assuming is fifty at this point. I wonder how familiar he is with with young sonars today and what they're into, or how much of that is leading. Obviously we know a lot of Improv. Involved like letting people do what they think you know. I I can't imagine that he knows that much. Yeah, I know, there is some of the the flack against him as he only makes movies really about like. White La. like. Decently well off. People who sure have like a couple friends that smoke weed. So, it's actually so one thing that I will give a appetite is that he ventured out of his comfort zone a little bit and went over to New York. Sure to do something a little bit. Do some a little bit different. A little bit. Yeah, so, what are your next piece? My next two are pretty similar. I don't because they're like king.

Sullivan learned that these loyalist raiders operated from along the western edge of Staten Island just across the river from New Jersey.

But they were scattered in groups of between one hundred and hundred and fifty soldiers per camp. Also on Staten Island. There were an estimated sixteen, hundred or so British regulars stationed up at the northeastern edge of the island, facing Manhattan.

He doesn't want to actually. His potential you know, but and it's all the things changed a lot, but the idea was just that it was just supposed to be one of those dumb things. Where like you spend too long, just not really. Taking care of your own, you know world and eventually kinda fallen out at that sort of I. Don't know that's the right way to describe it, but it was about the stakes being necessary, and about the idea that we have to see we. We have to show his character recognizing how dangerous the path is on is, and how even though it's all. He's the good guy there. He just one of them. He just got lucky. I almost thought that the rival Tattoo artists that he wanted to intern for whatever was maybe going to become an antagonised in the movie, but you know at the same time that that could have been a trope as well so it was good that you know life was more pizza, antagonists and kind of Pete was pizza antagonised for most of the movie, and that's that's definitely the trope of good coming of age story. What were the challenges that you felt riding in a non Samba piece? Because you his group of friends, you had margie his mom Clare's sister. You had ray, obviously the mandating his mom. A lot of characters and sometimes just tracking an ensemble can be you know a lot of work in itself to make sure that the characters have their moments their payoffs while at the same time servicing the protagonist. Who doesn't really have an antagonist, so tell us some of the challenges of ensemble writing what you learned with Judd doing that because he is a master for unsolvable pieces. In many ways I felt like the unsolvable thing wasn't so difficult because we didn't have to write for anyone. If anyone character wasn't. Working just get rid of them. You know there was a character. I believe name. Rosie that we had that changed that originally was going to be an older guy, and then we you know things just kept changing so that you know it ended up being incorporated into other character but there was just a lot where you know you just kind of your building a story, and you're never really forced to keep anyone. Anyone so it just if a character wasn't working, we just went. It's not like we went into it. Saying alright. Every one of these people have to score. You know it's not like we ran into like a game where they have a hundred characters, and they have to make sure each one of them gets the right moment We knew we wanted to happen and we knew that we could hire people who could pull it off. And and also obviously in game had years to get those moments ingrained. And previous material to build on, and you know you're building on only your movie so. That's that's the challenge obviously front somewhere writing not based on previous material. What have what about Kelsey is relationship with Kelsey his girlfriend? It was interesting to see where it went, and she was very good reminder of. The real life toll that Scott's character would. Would you know that piece character Scott would have on people in his life beyond just being a grind for his mom and his sister, you know she was dedicating time and energy towards Scott and was seen nothing in return, so that was kind of an interesting path to go down. Yeah that was emmy. We really owed a lot to bell for just being such a insanely good actor I mean her audition. I was in the room for that was shocking. She was so God damned good I mean she's British and she did the best. Staten Island accent of any American actress that we. That that, we auditioned so the thing about Kelsey was. We just sorta knew that a a romantic relationship was a big part of explaining what's going on with P, and that he's aware of how much of an undertaking dating him is, and how not fun? It can be for someone who doesn't understand. Why he's behaving a certain way, and it was just a relationship was a good way of exploring. You know the psyche of someone like that because he has to be more vulnerable with some he's. He's with physically and it. It's also GONNA create more problems for him. I think it was just about sort of that was a good way of. Of exploring, you know what's on with this guy and specifically more than anything how to really show what he needed to improve on and what he needed to be aware of, and you know that for me. I wrote a lot of those parts. You know as well as everyone else, but like a lot of that for me was because I've been in relationships that had similar issues I've been there with Pete when he's. HAD ISSUES WITH RELATIONSHIPS? Just like I've had relationships with women who had similar problems to piece actually so sort of gave me a little bit of a unique perspective and. It was able to utilize things that I've been thinking about for a long time. In the trailer, we kind of see ray a little bit of a as an antagonistic, but it's also clear that he's. He's going to be a good influence on Pete as well and you know it's. It's new trope to say that you know. The the guy that's dating the divorced mom or the or the widowers is kind of going to be you know come under suspicion from you know the kids as being somebody. That's an outsider that they need to get rid of here was interesting because you formed a delicate balance, because ray comes into the movie really hard, you know. He has his screaming in the doorway that his son was was tattooed by peed, and he's rightly angry at such a thing being done, and then he kind of becomes a nice guy for the rest of the movie until until Scott's character goes dozen. Dozen investigation on him and finds out that he was a day trader, and that he's actively trying not to do childcare and things that don't make ray look so good I'm curious how you how you kind of form that delicate balance to show, both a good and bad side to ray, in which ultimately the good is what shines through, even though by the way he still might be a train wreck of a person for Margie to date. It's not clear by the end of the movie, and it's not entirely non entirely sure you wanted to even bother definitively answering that question. Well if Margie wanted to be with a guy who wasn't a trainwreck than she would be clearly, she has type. Clearly! Margie likes a certain kind of guy and I. think that it's pretty clear to me at the end of this movie that margin Ray are going to get married, okay? To me, anyway, it's not perfect, but they'll ideas that you know. Raise a flawed person to, but more so ray serves as the hard, the hard rain of reality coming down on Pete and that you know, raise character is able to. It's just for someone who is such a house of cards of emotion for someone to bulldoze that like like Ray does. It's very much about what David Milch talks about about creating environments, and then throwing monkey wrenches into them..

"And then by the time it's Friday. It's five PM. Sometimes really. Yeah, wow because you got away twelve hours after the last time. No I know that makes sense and you know it's really important for crew to be able to not only sleep a drive home as well and everything else. So that's why I mean I guess that's good. Did you guys were doing it properly and paying the overtime as needed and just moving it up? That's a that's actually an interesting process. I have not heard i. mean that's where the budget went for this movie. It was in the fact that judd is professional. Professional, he treats everyone. UNACCEPT- professionally, and he doesn't skimp all. Been You know we? We all know the stories of the kind of sets where people are just losing their minds, because everyone's got so many different responsibilities, and it just crazy, and everyone is you know one p. a. as you so many things whereas our movie now people had everyone was was was was a pro knew what they had to do. I mean pretty much everyone except me. Everyone knew exactly where to be at every moment. You know the food was. There was no skimping there was. You Got Robert Ellsworth. Photographer we all these real professionals to really make sure that that nothing was ever half assed. WILL SO WE'RE GONNA get into the spoiler section so youtube folks and also podcast listeners. If you have not yet seen the king of Staten Island go rented, you could see it on Vod now. It's it's been released everywhere and then come back because we are now going to talk about the spoilers. I obviously I think the place to start. That's really obvious. Is that impedes real life? His father was a firefighter who who who died on an in duty, and that affected his life, and that's what the character of Scott has going for him as well. What were some of the conversations you had with Pete about? That that that loss, and how it put him in a sense of stasis for so many years, the way that you know is emulated through Scott. Well we had to do was just open up every painful memory he had and you know. We all know that Pete is very open very vulnerable about you know what he's been through and what he still goes through. And it's not like. He ever thought that. He deserves sympathy for it. It's just this is who he is, and he doesn't want high it. And we had to really talk about. Everything. The day his dad died. What happened? What mistakes were made in terms of helping him deal with it what you know, the the idea that he was treated like A. He feels like a Guinea pig. As a in because this, it was just. This is an extremely high profile historical tragedy. That everyone wanted a piece of you know talking about nine eleven obviously yeah, yeah, nine eleven, and you know just back like you see pete and he's shaking hands with George Bush and he's having.

"We, he tried writing with with other people friends of his also, and then we tried it, and it just worked really well. It just came out very quickly. It just it just worked, and we were all immediately. A Gay Tristan Project. We were writing and that would have been produced. Had he not been hired at us in, l.? A. Makes Sense I mean being hired on SNL just to go back for for a second, then I want to get to to today's film. Tell us about what you gleaned from their process. Because this is your first paid gig basically, and it's a huge one. What was it like on a weekly basis to be under that deadline? And how did your writing process in your in your craft devolve? I mean! SNL is a very sort of wild west environment where it's a lot of different people, and they're all just sort of left their devices to to try to adapt to the situation, and it's certainly one of the things you're going to do. Is it really you know there's a lot about discipline in about just being able to generate a ridiculous amount of material in a very short amount of time It's tough because you know. Basically you have one day to do the writing portion of the show, and that's very different than most shows, so it's really just about sorta survival. It's about is interrupted that one day because the other days. You're basically outlining and stuff like that. Monday. You pitch your idea Tuesday. You write it Wednesday. Everyone reads the sketches decides. which ones are the best ones? Thursday rewrite it, Friday, you rehearse. That's the week. Yeah, so you know you don't have really you're not really expected to write things over time. It's Sorta just it's everything's very sort of. Let's. Let's try this right now. It's because you have to have the host on board you have to. It has to speak to the host. It has to help them sto. Yeah, it's it's. It's much much shorter window than most any other show would be. At School, talking about like fallon or something where it's like daily right, and so you are on there for one season is that? A staff writer for one season, and so after that is that when you pete started coming up with the King of Staten Island. When when did the idea I began if it was before that I'd love to know that to? Peanut I wrote our first script before he was on SNL. And then that actually got interest from Judd to do a a blind script together, which also got cancelled because he got L. so then after. That season. I was there. We were talking again about a new idea for a movie which we we kinda bandied back and forth and ended up not really working out just for scheduling, just different things, and then when that was over Peten I. wrote another script called Mommy. That was like a more of a straight comedy. We were writing for another studio that didn't get picked up after we sold it, but judd read it and really liked it and said Hey, let's let's try this again. Let's let's start from scratch and write another script together and this time instead of sort of just arbitrarily. Assigned Munis to a storyline, let's. Early build something off of up here. Literally really build. What's an appropriate movie based on? You know? Peace, Real Story And, so that was that was that was judge thinking? Just let's let's really dive in. Let's really get into this and really. Dive into the truth about what we can and see what we can use from the what's really happened to Pete and who he really is will so in that regard like what is the status Amami. Could you pitch it to us? Is it something that could still get made? No, because mommy, while there's really no elements of mommy that made it into our script. You couldn't really do. Both Mommy was like more of a straight comedy, basically about a guy trying to get mom late about a guy whose mom hasn't dated in in over ten years like Pete's real mother, and it was like just like this sort of almost slapsticky idea of just like the of him and his sister. Trying to get their mom laid, and just trying to trying to find the right guy for mom, and only found him wait a second. This. Maybe this guy, not good for mom. Yeah, it was very very different than what we wrote but you could really do both right. I could see. I could see how one influences the other. You know something I forgot to ask earlier that I just WanNa get before we fully move into King Staten Island. What was your favorite skit that you made it through SNL and what was the one that still haunts you to this day where it just didn't go the way that you wanted? I mean the favorite. My favorite thing that I ever Russ L. was the trans bathroom of date that Pete did that was the first update. That was like really mine and it it just it it. It's the only thing I ever wrote SNL that did so well at the initial table that there was just no question that it was going to be on the air. It was great. I can still remember it. Thank you. Yeah, that was one. I was really happy with As in terms of like things that I wasn't happy with I mean the truth is they're just just. The inevitable weren't on the show. That's why they weren't on me. In those they weren't on. This show would be the ones that would be the problem I mean. I do believe me. I wrote a lot. That is there one that comes to mind that you really wished made it, but just never did that. You could tell us about something that never made it. Because you just couldn't get out for whatever reasons. It's always fun to hear those left turns. Well I mean we had a lot of sketches that could have on the show and they just weren't. You know I think. Those one sketch actually was doing the Jay Pharaoh with Pitas mackel more that was just about Drake Kidnapping rappers and keeping them in a dungeon to ghost. Write for him. That was just like such a dumb fund sketch that almost made it. That's really funny. We just had every cast member just playing another washed up rapper in this dungeon together. It was just such a fun idea that that did well, but it just didn't make it to the show. Stuff like that I mean I definitely wrote I wrote update features.

Island, thank you for having me a merry honored to be able to talk about this. I could not possibly feel like more of a Dick Trying to pitch a movie at this point in history. You know you're not pitching. We're GONNA talk about. We're going to talk about your process, so you've got a lot of. Make sure people understand how unimportant this movie is. You know there are many more important things going on in the world, so it's coming out at a turbulent time, but it's also coming at a time where people might want some escapist fiction that takes them certainly away from the events of the world. Before they returned back to them, we hope so I think it will serve that purpose because that's good entertainment always. Does you know I? WanNa to your in story. Did you go to school for writing? Where where did you study? What did you like? I went to Syracuse for illustration. which at least I, was able to partially us because then I drew a bunch of the tattoos in the movie. But no I am I started doing stand up in high school like a senior in high school, and then I did it through college, and just sort of continued trying not. Consistently like all the time it was hard, but yes, since then I am just sort of got into sketch, comedy and writing and just trying to do. Whatever kind of comedy just you know worked best for me. Videos Youtube stuff you know. Sketch is live stuff. Did you, did you try the Obama Tattoo in the movie? Because that Tattoo was pretty amazing yet, I was me. Yeah, just for people that haven't seen it yet and I hope you do go see. You can watch it on demand basically there's a very messed up Barack Obama Tattoo. Where just you know. Scott's character wants to be a tattoo artist Dan. His talent is questionable answer from points in the movie trying to draw a tattoo. That's bad in a way. That looks unintentional is so hard. I do that Obama so many times like there was the number of tattoos that I drew just trying to figure out what the magic is of drawing a bad tattoo. That doesn't look on purpose was. A. It's so much harder than I imagined it would be. What's what did you graduate circus two thousand? Okay, and so if you wanNA, tell us. What did you do between two thousand?

'cause you know, everybody has a different path, and it's always interesting to hear pretty much. Nothing I I did stand up. Nothing really went particularly great. You know I just I went to l. a. and I started doing you know just sort of stand up there nothing that really translate into anything big. You know just doing Joe's in some most than going well.

"Whatever it is is when they explain the nineteen eighteen H One n one. How Saint Louis Lockdown and Philadelphia said. No WE'RE GONNA have a parade right right right and then to the different curves and then Saint Louis Open backup lake shortly thereafter and then they're curve spiked and yeah the two different curves and how that all went down and then they immediately lockdown again you know and yeah so that was kind of interesting to watch but and then I figured you know just on that note. I figure that Wisconsin the Supreme Court just said that they all. The lockdown measures are unconstitutional. They're going to open up so best part of that. Is I figured fewer packer FANS COCA. The bears packers. I'm only kidding has gone too far. It's called Corona virus. So what did you watch? What did I watch so I have a good trip but other than watch have a good trip and then I watched Jerry Seinfeld the twenty three hours. Oh Yeah we did too. We talked about What was your thoughts? So my thoughts just quickly I loved. I loved it. It's classic Jerry. My big thing with him was at the beginning he jumps into the Hudson and they do that close up on his face and and the whole time. That wasn't him. They just superimposes face. They just supervises face or the. You know that was it. Then I was no there was him. They punched in on his face. He looked away and they punched in on his face. But you saw the end. How they how they trained him so it was. I was GONNA ask you if you thought it was real or not and then at the end during the during the credit sequence they showed the training and they showed all the all the high high dive jumping that he did to train to jump into the Hudson and he did a day jump. Know and stuff like that and I was like look see. It's real it's real. Oh Yeah I was kind of fun you know but it was great. It was a great thing to do it. All he talked about the bucket list and turn it and it was so funny because like he's so delicate you know he's like he doesn't want to like offend his audience so he says he calls it a bucket list that he goes. I just change the be to whatever and then I didn't have to do it at all you know and I was like. Oh that's right that's GonNa come to saying the word you know. Put it's typical Jerry Seinfeld right right right right. He was very safe. It was very fun it was I was laughing a lot so it was definitely humor and that was in my in my stride. You know the whole the whole dichotomy of single versus married people and how you really have nothing to talk to you with the other side. Whatever side you're on is a constant in my life because I work with a lot of millennials. So they're like you know. And I think Jerry Seinfeld all in all I mean he. He has a very unique take on life and he's quick and he has you know I mean. He's an intelligent guy. Mislead I mean as I think. Most comedians are intelligent. That's why they're comedians. Because the way they see the world and the nuances and how quick they are to jump on the comedy of it and I another thing I watched too. I think I finished all the bill. Burs on Netflix right. So all the bill. Burr stand ups and some of the things he was talking about is you know. He and his wife and their conversations and arguments in the house. And that's Kinda dilbert stick a little way and I'm thinking to myself like how could you be married to somebody like as anything you say is going to end up. It's pure comedy because you know the moment you say anything in his his brains turning like how could I use this? This is what I need to use my neck. Stand up session. You know. And it's like right right. No matter how serious you know. It might be something totally serious like this is how I feel. This is why I feel that way. It's of any no he's just going to undermine you stand up. He's just he's just throwing it on the woodpile to burn his next day out totally so well on the longest quick-witted lines. I I watched a couple of episodes of middle middle ditch and SWERTZ middle digits. Were if you're into stand up comedy and I if you need trainer fodder anymore but middle digit swords on Netflix. And it's a comedy deal. Middle Ditch is the guy from Silicon Valley right and Ben Schwartz Thomas Middle Ditches guy from Silicon Valley and Ben Schwartz. Another actor and character actor in a comedy stuff and they basically they go out on stage. And it's an Improv show. It's called long form Improv. What platform you're watching Netflix. Netflix super super easy. Okay so they pick somebody the audience. They have a short conversation with a couple of people in the audience. And then the off of that conversation with the people of the audience. They develop a Improv comedy. Show so then. They act off each other and they added to my list. When you talk about to me. Some of the most intelligent things you can do is his Improv. Because you're trying to form ideas and playing off other people that are doing it you know. I loved whose line is it anyway. And you know that's kind of like short. That's kind of like short little games around it but this is long form. This is like one story it out of the first the first ones like a wedding party and they basically asked this couple. That's GONNA get married about their wedding and it's very interesting little balcony foursome. That's in there and offer the conversation with these four people. They develop a whole comedy show. That is completely improv. And it's long for him and it takes this whole cycle of things and and it's still fun to watch some of the stuff. Some of the stuff goes down this path. And it's like ooh that's a fruitful path. Like they kind of gauge the audience's laughter and reaction to what they do more of so. It's like it's leg the human algorithm. Just like churning away like trying to assimilate a story and like taking conversation that this whole audience has heard and now we as the home audience is all also heard and then how. How deftly can we molded? Into a comedy scene comedy. Sketch that will last for twenty thirty minutes or something so a lot of fun and I can't wait cause I added my list. I can't wait to watch. And the last thing I watched this week was the last three episodes of black AF so hashtag black AF. Oh that's what it was I'll week I'm like what the Hell Watch so. I watched the first episode last couple of weeks and then I finally this last night or the night before. And that's Netflix too. Right also Netflix's yes. Watch a lot of Netflix. And then so the the last two episodes of that is a they go on vacation to Fiji and it's kind of just like an amazing vacation. You know just like the richest vacation go on private jets you know and like private beaches private islands you know and it's just everybody you know families are families families have problems rated regardless of if you're the rich have problems marital strife as well so. I was like so so relieved to hear his marital drive. It like he goes off to go. He gets like a a very small like Extra Room to basically spend the night away from his family because his ways like giving him our time. I'm all over it. I'm off it as little off as little room. And he's watching a blackish and obviously he is the creator of blackish and in the show. He plays himself so he plays the creator of blackish and he's watching his own show like as he's crying and lamenting his life with his wife and he's like and he talks about how great this his black ish was and he talks about all the awards and he's like at any plays bitter about not winning an emmy for blackish and he talks about. He rolls off like the thirteen other awards like thirteen. Peabody's you know this that all these other awards into the show got but never emmy That that that fickle lady of Emmy you know so I thought it was just so well done just like. It's a great introspective. Look into this Showrunner creator craters life. So it's like can't wait to check out black ATF. Because I was thinking I'm like what was that show Ted mentioned last week and I go to my. I hit the plus sign. It says it's in my list. It's not there I go to add to my list. It says it's there I don't know so I guess I'll have to find it later in the week but at least now I wrote down. I wrote it down like okay. We'll black AF with pencil and paper. Rake is apparently like digital is a work. Thanks Corona virus. Exactly that should be Hashtag takes coronavirus. Yeah so I think we said we say so. A lot of good beer and audrey talking about the kick is Staten Island..
