"What do you think it's so funny about steve. Why is he so great as a comedian. Oh my god. I mean nothing. No i mean it's you always feel self conscious story but when nineteen eighty. I didn't know steve and i'm watching. The grammys steve comes out. To present the best album of the year and he's entails and shirt studs and no pants boxer underwear garters to here and he makes no acknowledgement of the ati sustainable and he starts reading the nominations and by the third nominations a little bowman comes out running with a pair of pants on a hanger. Ask steve looks at him and says well it's about time and then he puts the pants on and continues to read. And i thought that is the most brilliant joke. I would pay a million dollars. If i could have done that so i didn't even know mitt so i think his mind is hilarious. And he's deeply into you know. I think if you're that talented but but of a bit of a jerk there would be no relation. There wouldn't be. I find you know first of all we just have a. We're gonna talk ourselves out of a friendship. That's what's gonna happen. I can't believe you said that know. We just have a kind of an ease but in terms of his comedy. Whenever i look at his old specials and things i i that's how that's i can't believe you're doing that and the years in the head and all my head but yeah no you wear put pieces and i find the characters completely so big. Jackie rogers juniors a pop star. Yeah that makes sense about jimmy jimmy. Yeah i'm i'm shocked that he gets away with it. I mean it's so devastating to the person you're interviewing. Yeah but they were all friends idiot. So i know. When i my favorite lines was to mel brooks when i said what's your big beef for the nazis and he said what's my big. What's my big beef. I don't know. I think the rude so it worked out. It's brilliant. it's so good. And do you have a favorite character of steve's through the years i've done or favorite special or moment that stuck roxanne is my ultimate fan. I mean i love the. I four comedies.

"Even the two of you acting only murders have lifelong friends. Oh yeah and a big connection has been humor. that's it. i think it's true. Yeah oh sure. Absolute but i would say like your. I'm guessing you probably have friends in the business. Who do the same thing as you report. Poor with them because you know what it is. We have comedians of all stripes. Yeah but there's also something about a person you're comfortable with enough to insult them constantly. That means you're really no. We're often asked if we ever go too far. We ever have to apologize. And it's never by the way that's not the only thing we do. We actually have conversations. Sure or are we talking about how the show went or You know things to improve. We'd do a live show. We walk off and go. We don't be right after the bow. Always say we. I think we should cut that one or move it up to the front of this. We were all say to him having said what do you think of angela. Merkel's and you'll see who you know what we great is if she lived in europe. That's where she should be. Yeah you're gonna regret that comment for a long time. I think i don't think of the uk as europe. I'm sorry it's a pain angry. No it's a fact that. I don't think i wanted to be separate. You mentioned father of the bride when you guys did that. Ninety one thirty year anniversary coming up crazy obviously a great movie great script great characters but you never could have imagined how well it would do in commercially and through time and yeah always thought. I don't know what your questions would be. Wait no go ahead okay i. I've always thought this you know. We did a remake. Another doing another remake. And at the time. I thought this movie the subject will be remade through time as times change because so universal subject a father and his daughter and getting married i mean what could be more fundamental so i already knew. They were headed for another remake. Probably another remake after that because times change in the but core heart of it will always remain. it's also powerful title. Yeah it's like first wives club. You knew that had to be perfect. And how did you shape in create franck one of the great characters in movie history them. Yeah i heard it. I didn't want it..

I didn't realize i guess i should have. That three amigos was your first movie. We'd known you. Snl and right. Were i in the bloodstream. So that was your first movie. So what was it like to walk in with steve. Martin who's already steve martin and chevy chase who's already chevy a little bit intimidating. But they were very very nice to me. They're very you know we had to play three close friends. So i had to the first couple of weeks impersonation impersonation of someone really relaxed. And but they made it very easy. Immediately vaunted through laughter and scrabble. Be before you knew it you felt. He's at ease and like this is a great thing to be doing. And the legend has it your first conversation or maybe one of the first when you came to the house to get the script as was a dig at steve and so the relationship was set forever. Yes tell them the dig. Yes i went to steve's house to pick up a script for three amigos who's you know. He wrote it with lorne. Michaels remind newman and i walked into his house and his old house. In beverly hills and i looked around. There was a cosso. There was a hopper. And i said how did you get this rich. Because i've seen your work you said i've toward the end of the meeting. I said it was great. Great meeting you. I expected more charisma anyway but it was kind of the natural instinct and it was overwhelming by the way he really did say that. Yeah and i kind of remember my reaction which was outta kinda curious side. I like this. you know. That's a daring thing to say to someone you've never met dollar then and then you sort of like am i going with this or am i and you know. It was just comedy comedy. We just we love hanging out with comedians. Because i think there's a thank god. I wasn't from ireland. Where you have you ever thought of going to europe so you're from Your family goes back to ireland.

Fear and Joy Go Hand in Hand in Parenting

"This is something that has been really important to me in understanding how i relate to my kids i have felt so much terror as a parent in certain moments where. I've actually looked todd been like. Why did we do this liquid. This and i'm somewhat being facetious. I'm not but part of me is not part of me is like oh my god. I chose all of this because to raise humans and to support them and help them. And i have been overwhelmed. Two different versions of having three very little girls or you know when they were you know trying to get everyone to school or now getting someone to call it. It's so much terror yet. That's where all the joy comes from. And the example i can give is from this movie. You know steve. Martin is at his wits end. Pulled up if you wanna listen to it. I don't know well. Is it the part where he catches the ball. No it's grandma told the roller coaster. I'll say the catch the ball thing and then can do the rollercoaster story. So basically he's so down and he basically is found out his wife is pregnant and he's like oh my god. How am i going to do this again. All i have is responsibility. he's just got all these quotes about. He has no choice. He only has responsibility and then he's at a ball game. His sons ballgame and a ball is hit to his son. His son catches it which his son hasn't done before to win the game. And steve martin flips out with joy here because the terror that he has been experiencing the opposite of it when he has an experience of like an unexpected moment of greatness. It's the best feeling he's ever had in his life earlier in the movie. His son missed the bright and he was being ostracized by his teammates. Exactly and then his son has this moment where he caught it and he cannot contain his joy and so when we talk about paint. Enjoy being connected. That's what we mean. Tear enjoy like you would never have that experience of joy without having the experience of terror. Before i'm using the word terror you guys could use fear discomfort feeling anxious. Whatever works for you. Just use the word terror because that's what it feels like in my body

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

"So entity parenti. Moment i want to focus on was called laughter and i'm going to read it. Comedian steve. martin reportedly reportedly lasts for five minutes in front of his mirror every morning. Explaining his goal is to jump start. His creativity begin the day on a high note. So just picture that. I care but you but i just wonder how often what does that urban legend and if that's really was from his memoir a believe it but there's gotta be it's that's a lot to ask five minutes of well. Do you think he d he could do it. I mean people meditate for ten minutes a day. I'm sure he can laugh for five minutes. And i think it's all relative right like even people who say they meditate everyday miss days. I think his point is sometimes gotta get yourself worked up to the place where you like. I've been bright. You know you know. I write every morning and lately. I've just been saying Good morning how are you talking to myself. Will i keep doing that. I don't know. But what i'm trying to do is engage myself. Tim totally engaged my thinking so he may do something else to make himself last. You go on to say children. We left hundreds of times a day but as adults we take life so seriously that laughter becomes infrequent it is in our best interest to seek out opportunities for good humor us better inside and out. Laughter is one of the best things we can do to strengthen our immune system decrease pain and keep our mind out of worry mode. Nothing works faster or more dependable to bring us back into balance then laughing enclosing. It's more than just a break from sadness and pain. It's actually a path back to hope. A humorous perspective creates a psychological distance. That can make situations feel less. Threatening and more manageable. Laughter is medicine offsetting the physical and psychological impact of stress and increasing our ability to feel joy. Yes there's the moment. Yeah so. I think the reason you played the Indigo girls was because i used that quote from that song. Exactly right yeah well. It's only life after off. And just because i've played this clip a million times.

Steve Martin On His Years As A Comic — And Walking Away From Stand-Up

"But if you could hold Steve Martin has been making people laugh often with highly conceptual humor since the nineteen sixties when he was a staff writer on the smothers brothers comedy hour in the seventies he became a major stand up comedy star filling arenas with his fans he rose to fame along with his then new TV show called Saturday Night Live on which he made many memorable appearances as a wild and crazy guy a medieval barber and a fan of king tut eventually the fame that brought in huge audiences also made it impossible for him to do the kind of comedy that made him original he starred in movies from the jerk to parenthood and in recent years has also written plays essays and books and toured with both his bluegrass band and with friend and fellow comic Martin short Steve Martin won the Mark Twain prize for American humor in two thousand five in was a Kennedy center honoree in two thousand seven Terry gross spoke with Steve Martin in two thousand eight about his memoir born standing up Steve Martin welcome back to fresh AIR eleven returning her thank you I thank you very much I'd like you to open with a reading from the beginning of the book and we've we've edited the slightly to make it crystal a little shorter for the broadcast great be happy to I did stand up comedy for eighteen years ten of those years were spent learning for years were spent refining and for years were spent in wild success I was seeking comic originality and fame fell on me as a by product the course was more plodding than her ROIC I did not strive valiantly against doubters but took incremental steps started with a few intuitive leaps I was not naturally talented I didn't sing dance or act the working around that minor detail made me inventive I was not self destructive though I almost destroyed myself in the end I turned away from stand up with the tired swivel of my head and never looked back until now a few years ago I began researching and recalling the details of this crucial part of my professional life which inevitably touches upon my personal life and was reminded why I did stand up and why I walked away in a sense this book is not an autobiography but a biography because I am writing about someone I used to know yes these events are true yet sometimes they seem to have happened to someone else and I often felt like a curious onlooker or someone trying to remember a dream I ignored my stand up career for twenty five years but now having finished this memoir I view this time with surprising warmth one can have it turns out an affection for the war years thanks for reading that that Steve Martin reading from his memoir born standing up which has just been published in paperback yeah I guess I didn't realize how much you closed the door on your comedy years how much there was like a before and after it ended you were done and that was it right I I I'm it was about nineteen eighty one I still had a few obligations left but I knew that hi I could not continue but I guess I could have continued if I had nothing to go to but I did have something to go to which was movies and you know the act had become so known that in order to go back I would have had to create an entirely new show and I wasn't up to it especially when the opportunity for movies and writing movies came around why would you have to create an entirely new show well like I say the the the act was really it there is a passage in the book which I caught because it was so hard to explain but the act essentially besides all the jokes and bits and everything was conceptual and once the concept was understood there was nothing more to develop it's like saying painting the same blank canvas over and over and over and over and over once the concept is no you don't see the need to see to that and that was in the back of my head that I was really done artistically with with what I had created or pastiche to you know in the reading that you just did you describe yourself as not being naturally talented did you think of yourself as naturally funny I'm I didn't didn't think of myself in that way no although I I just love to comedy I I was raised with laurel and hardy and I Love Lucy Anne and Jerry Lewis and I just loved it and I had a friend in high school and we would just laugh all day and put on skits and you know it's the Andy Kaufman thing over to Marty short thing where you're performing in your bedroom for yourself and I I loved magic and so I would practice my magic tricks in front of a mirror for hours and hours and hours because I was told that you must practice you must practice and never present a trip before it's ready but I was just inclined toward show business but I didn't know what I just like being on stage you got your start working in Disneyland you were living in southern California and when you were ten you were selling guidebooks there then you later work for magic shop demonstrating magic tricks and I get the sense from your memoir that demonstrating those magic tricks you know hours a day and really getting them getting them down because you're doing them so much that that gave you a sense that performance required a great deal of craft that even comedy wasn't just a question of going out on stage and saying funny things that there was enormous amounts of work and practice and thought that would have to go into it well that that idea of that that you really had to work at this stuff didn't necessarily come from Disneyland it I I mean I think yes and in terms of presenting a trick but having having it so well honed in your mind was really giving me a sense of security it was I don't want to go out there half baked and you know you learn that through the years you know you're you do a magic show with a friend and you rehearse it a couple of times and yes every all the timing has to be exactly perfect but while you're out there it's it's a different world it's not your mirror you have to make on the spot adjustments but that's just you know whatever entertainer does actually working at the magic shop really gave me a sense of comedy because it was all the jokes we did the tricks but we have all these jokes I had a friend Jim Barlow who you know he he was the the guy I worked with there but he had patter worked out you know it he would go to customers and say Medicare money I mean help you not and you know call them suckers it was really funny and and kind of friendly rude what was your patter I just took all of Jim's patter I'm I'm trying to think of other ones yeah I said it would just it would somebody would buy something it would say and because you are hundred customer today you get a free paperback it's a little silly things like that but Disneyland I'm fifteen right here at early act was a combination of banjo playing juggling magic tricks and comedy and some of that stating your later at two but it sounds like a vaudeville act yes I was very interested involved it was the only sort of discipline that was a five minute act on stage which is what I really enjoyed ins and saw myself doing and I bought books on it I went to the Long Beach pike which was off the carnival fair you know four is really a place for drunken sailors to get tattoos but there was also side shows is very interested in that but you know there is these are all in there these are short acts there was one of the employees at Disneyland that I worked with was named Steve Stewart and he worked in vaudeville and he did a sack for me one day on the floor of the magic shop and I had a couple of great gags one was that I actually used and I asked him if I could use them because I was very strict about using any material that wasn't mine or that that was taken from somebody else let's put it this way I became strict wasn't strict at first there is one trick that one joke that Dave steward did where he said are not yet a glove white glove in his hand the magicians glove any he said and now the glove into dove trick and he threw it into the air and then it hit the floor and he just looked at it and consent and set up for my next trick he went on and it was the first time I saw comedy created out of nothing of nothing happening and I Glaum don to that wait wait wait you're doing I think is not only making comedy out of nothing but making comedy out of people's expectations which you were going to fail to fulfill well yes exactly and I I really started that when I became a semi professional meaning I was working the local folk music clubs going around either working for free or for a week and I quickly decided that you know the material was you know good or weak or whatever and I decided whatever it was I was going to pretend like it was fantastic and how great am I how great is what you're seeing and I think that's what grizzly hunting it's a tune him too because they couldn't believe that someone actually was that confident

Fashion and War in America

"Are currently in the midst of international fashion week. Yes and last week. We talked about the origins of the semi-chaotic relationship between fashion and Hollywood film. But we only got into the nineteen thirties so today. We're moving out of the thirties and into the nineteen forties. Which of course takes US straight into World War Two and on the show? We've talked a lot about fashion and war as it relates to Europe during World War One and World War Two but less so about the relationship fashion and war in America and it's actually incredibly fascinating because throughout the nineteen thirties. America's changing perception of their homegrown talent was reflected in Ariz- leading fashion magazines. Such as Vogue and Harper's bazaar at both of those magazines began to feature American fashion designers more and more throughout the decade. Elizabeth Haase reflected on this transitory period in American fashion in her book. Fashion is spinach which was published in nineteen thirty eight and in it. She writes quote in the late twenties ninety percent of the drawings and photographs. Where the work? A prison couturiers and. She's talking about Vogue and Harper's bazaar and then she says many pages and both magazines are now devoted to close created in America for American Life. The outbreak of World War Two and nineteen thirty nine mark significant shift in the fate of American designers who having continued to operate in the shadow of Paris throughout the nineteen thirties. Were suddenly left to stand all on their own and during the German occupation of Paris from June nineteen forty to August nineteen forty four. Many of the leading French couture houses were forced to close and those that did remain open did so under severely limited operations and some pretty severe restrictions as well right and for those of our listeners. Who might not have heard? April actually did a fantastic interview on stuff. You Mr History class which we featured a couple months ago so check it out if you want to learn more about fashion world war two so for the French fashion industry. This meant that communication with America during World War Two. It meant that one of their most important export markets was almost entirely broken and in one thousand nine hundred one after American designers and manufacturers presented promising fall and spring collections New York Times fashion journalist Virginia Pope well. She declared Murck City to be the fashion center of the world and AIRCON designers may have come into their own during the war but they did so under restriction and regulation beginning in nineteen forty two American fashion designers had to grapple with restrictions imposed by regulation l eighty five which were government imposed sanctions at severely limited. Just what designers could and could not produce the purpose of l. eighty-five was to conserve materials. Needed for the war effort and this included fabrics such as silk cotton wool. Leather Rubber Nylon. So you know pretty much. Every material that you need to make clothing and footwear and the regulations thus restricted just. How much material could be used in the making of new garments so we had campaign such as make-do-and-mend which encouraged people to avoid shopping altogether by mending their old clothes. Something we of course support very much today. L. eighty-five essentially challenge the very nature of the fashion industry itself. As we all know depends on the production of new seasonal clothing styles to stimulate consumerism and as we establish last episode Hollywood films while they were actively complacent and encouraging fashion consumption throughout the nineteen thirties and costume designers like their fashion designer. Counterparts were not exempt from L. Eighty five regulations during the war in an eighteen. Forty four article in the New York Times renowned Hollywood costume designer. Edith head called L. Eighty five quote. The greatest boone ever came to fashion designers in Hollywood so it would appear casts that in the nineteen forties costume designers still considered themselves as fashion designers. And she goes on to say about eighty-five quote. It vanished super luxury and brought us all down to Earth. Today we create sensible styles for women the kind that they can actually wear and she goes on to say how. Well I remember the day when we would swirl Fox skins around the hem of a secretary address or wipe satin uniform on a trained nurse. Now we hold to stark realism and by this time had been the head designer at paramount. For seven years she had taken over for her predecessor. Travis Banton in nineteen thirty seven and head like baton began her career in film working with Howard greer in the nineteen twenties as a costume illustrator before climbing the ranks and indeed head is certainly one of the most prolific and fame designers from the Hollywood golden age. Numerous books have been written about this prolific designer who April has eight Academy Awards for best costume design and wait for it. She has four hundred and forty four credits. On that's intense. She worked for almost sixty years in the film industry so she had an incredible career her first credit it dates to nineteen twenty five and her last film is dead. Men Don't wear plaid with Steve Martin. That released after her death in nineteen eighty two so she died in one thousand nine hundred. One at the age of eighty. Three head is quoted and Margaret Bailey's nineteen eighty-two book those Glorious Glamour Years as saying quote. I do not consider a motion picture costume designer necessarily a fashion creator because we do the script tells us to if we do a period piece then we recreate fashion. That was done before. And if we have a character role we do character close. It is only by the accident of a script that calls for fashion an actress that can wear fashion that some of the beautiful clothes will emerge. I don't consider myself a designer in the sense of fashion designer. I am a motion picture costume designer. So just how did head go from identifying as a fashion designer in Hollywood and the nineteen forties to firmly distinguishing herself as a costume designer by the end of her career? I love this answer. You pro because it actually lies with the advent of yours new-look which is a little unexpected as many of us know nineteen forty seven witnessed this dramatic and sudden change in fashion. Thanks to the unprecedented success of Christiane Yours Premier collection and he introduced dresses with nipped in ways. Those padded hips and full long skirts and they stood in direct contrast to the war regulated fashions of years prior which is why so many people loved them. Unfortunately for the many films released the year that this change took place. The costumes were immediately glaringly out of fashion again. Dino Dior's new look was significant reminder. That though film cost you may be perceived and interpreted as fashion it will never be able to truly contend with the whims and follies of contemporary trends. And Edith. Had designed costumes for eleven films that were released in nineteen forty seven so to say that she was affected is a bit of an understatement. Here and looking on this period for the book. Edith head's Hollywood edith reflected quote. I learned my lesson. The hard way just offered Dior brought out the new look every film I had done in the past few months. Looked like something from the bread lines with each screening. I vowed that I would never get caught by fashion trend again and became a confirmed fence sitter. Although despite her weariness of fashion trends did not keep her designs from apparently sparking them as was the case with address she designed for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun which was a nineteen fifty film in a nineteen seventy-eight article for the American Film Journal. Edith wrote my dress for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun was taken up by manufacturer of debutante Party dresses. Someone at paramount wants counted at a party thirty seven Elizabeth Taylor's dancing. All studio designers have created something that influences fashion. But a good costume designer. Shouldn't try to influence style though. Naturally he hopes to hit upon something that many people will like

It's always awesome to talk to you. It's been three and a half years. I looked it up. I know I can't believe leave it. I miss a lot of trends so every year you publish a book with the last nine years you published book on Non Obvious Trends but this year you say this is not Mba mega trends and visited last one. Why are you stopping after it selling so much? Well I think one reason is because I wanted to WHO Head out on top style like one of the big reasons so It was it was kind of time. You know it's been a decade. I've been working on this project for After ten years and every year I do neutra and predictions and it felt like twenty twenty was kind of a significant moment in all of our lives right. If we're doing things differently we're thinking about the world differently. Were kind of projecting forward. It was sort of a perfect time for me to think about how to write this a little bit differently. I'd say twenty twenty and last thing I turned around it was like the year. Two thousand is just crazy the on line that said Twenty twenty was twenty years ago but nineteen eighty was twenty years ago. Exactly exactly so I want to call it a couple of your mega trends. The one you talk about his `gendering you say that traditional gender divisions are replaced with more fluid understanding of gender identity forcing a reevaluation. How we see one another I think for those who are of my generation which is really you know the boomers? We have a hard time with this thing called engendering. Why isn't important in business? Gender used to be this pretty simple Sort of answer to a question right. It was either this or that. It was the second question or the question we asked on a form And and it straightforward and now it's become kind of a statement for a lot of people This is how I wanted to be seen in the world and so you know we we get hung up a lot on this idea of gender and I don't understand understand it and it seems kinda strange and thinking about it but if if we put it in terms of identity as in we all just want to be understood and addressed in the way that we see ourselves you know that makes sense wants to people like I get that you know and so I think for small business owners and for any of us one of the things that we need to think about is are we unintentionally driving people away by just assuming that they fit into the boxers that we put them in so is it another F- for small businesses. We think of as a another way to define persona a buyer's persona and now gender becomes a flower our or a non gender and becomes a factor. Yeah I mean that is that is one piece of it you know. It's the customer personas but the other is just these kind of Unintentional things we might do drive someone away right. I mean. How important is it really for you to ask that sort of question for example In an interaction right. I mean depending on what you're selling you may not necessarily need to know that like if somebody's interested in what you have to sell and you have a great product or you have a great service and you're trying to get in front of somebody buddy like don't lose their attention because you're unintentionally offending them. I thought it was really interesting when I think this with your lift or Uber where you go on and you can set your preferred pronouns so again that is more personalized service and the driver doesn't insult someone unintentionally. Yeah this basic sailed right. I mean anybody who's he's gone through. Sales trading is like oh address customer by name like asking their name and and use their name because everyone loves hearing their name and I think this is a reflection of that too like people want to be addressed with correct Pronoun and yeah. I've been getting emails from people who in their email signature says my preferred pronoun is and they tell you right and I know a lot of a lot of people say yeah well I just don't get it. I'm thinking to myself. It's not for you to get. It's the way they want to be identified and And I think that that that is a great is a great point right. I mean I I think we do kind of get hung up on this. I don't get it I don't understand it You don't have to necessarily understand if someone says my name is so and so you. You don't always know how to pronounce it right. So you ask you do your best and you move on right absolutely well. megatrend number three talk about instant knowledge as as we consume bite-size is knowledge on demand we benefit Hillary more quickly but risk for getting the value of mastery and wisdom. This scenario that I'm really concerned about that. People want instant knowledge but no one's is willing to go deep. has that really affect us. I think there's a couple of ways I mean it's A. It's a great example of a mega trend that it isn't inherently positive or negative. I mean look if I can go onto youtube and I can learn how to fix a leak in my toilet myself like that's awesome. I mean that's great. That's good for everybody What's bad is if all we have is that type type of knowledge and no one ever believes that? It's worth spending that extra time to become a master to become an expert. So how does it affect us in business as we're trying to attract customs that's one of the biggest things one of the biggest tenants of content marketing. You know which I know you talk about. Is We want to educate our customers. Because we're the ones providing the Education Gatien. We're building trust and building credibility and I think this fits perfectly into that because when people want instant knowledge like who do they get it from right. And if you've got for example a financial advisory refer and you're trying to educate your client what they should do with retirement and they're going online to watching videos from someone else. Educating them you know what are they gonNA think right. They're gonNA start thinking well. Why isn't the financial advisor? Educating me why do I feel dumb when I walk into that meeting with my adviser and I don't feel dumb after these videos. Maybe I should make a change. Do you think there's still a place to help people with mastering wisdom because there are some people in Emily that always want to go deeper. Of course yeah I mean I think that that the nice thing about instant knowledge. It's it can be a gateway to mastery and wisdom.

I going to be a professional banjo player. Maybe not but that's okay because I can start with that and if I do find something that I love something that I'm passionate about then I'll spend the time because because the thing with mastery and wisdom is for a lot of people we become masters and experts in the things we love it and that's not going to change because that's a human

"This is the time of year that I make my predictions for small a business having a good run for about five years in a row. I've been way off these last few years. My next guest. The person that's always knows what the next trend is reheat. bhargava is the founder of the Non Obvious Company and as an entertaining original and non boring keynoter on Innovation Trust. He previously spend and fifteen years in leadership roles at two renowned AD agencies. Lebron Ogilvy Rohe's Wall Street Journal bestselling author of six books and book by deliver rickie notes in thirty two countries around the world. He's a popular adjunct professor of storytelling at Georgetown University. His new book out this year is called. Non Obvious Mega trends real heat. Welcome back to the show thank you. It's always awesome to talk to you. It's been three and a half years. I looked it up. I know I can't believe leave it. I miss a lot of trends so every year you publish a book with the last nine years you published book on non obvious trends but this year you say this is not MBA mega trends and visited last one. Why are you stopping after it selling so much? Well I think one reason is because I wanted to WHO Head out on top style like one of the big reasons so It was it was kind of time. You know it's been a decade. I've been working on this project for After ten years and every year I do neutra and predictions and it felt like twenty twenty was kind of a significant moment in all of our lives right. If we're doing things differently we're thinking about the world differently. Were kind of projecting forward. It was sort of a perfect time for me to think about how to write this a little bit differently. I'd say twenty twenty and last thing I turned around it was like the year. Two thousand is just crazy the on line that said Twenty twenty was twenty years ago but nineteen eighty was twenty years ago. Exactly exactly so I want to call it a couple of your mega trends.

Because when I I used to own one thousand nine hundred ninety three Ford Falcon. It didn't have any seat belts in it because they weren't required at the Time Warner and drive it. I need to have seat belt so I go online. I'm thinking how am I going to solve these seatbelts. I wonder if anybody's nobody's ever done it. And of course there was probably six places where you could watch videos of install belt nine hundred sixty three or four falcon. It's like who would've known Yup because the thing about Expertise is and when we learn about things from people like that. They've become an expert because they're passionate about it and one of the things they WANNA do. They WANNA share that expertise Jason. That's really cool that we have instant access to that. I love your megatrend number four. You call revivalism overwhelmed by technology. Complexity people seek out a simpler experienced. I often established and remember more trustworthy. Time that's kind of like a complex statement. I think some people are looking for a place that is simpler but wasn't really more trustworthy the time or just only a couple of sources who were trusted. I think maybe a little of both And I think maybe we remember the past a little more romantically than and we should. But I think that revival isn't was a really interesting one because what it meant to me. And the implication for any small business was sometimes this thing that we consider to be bad this word that we consider it to be bad which has downgraded actually might be good because a lot of times what we think about when we think about downgrade is that it's less optimal but a downgraded experience for example is something that maybe is more humid.

The Life of Mike Nichols

"Ask Carter and Sam Kashmir join us now they wrote together an oral history of Mike Nichols it's called life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred and fifty of his closest friends Sam Ash. Thanks for being here. Just thanks for having US thank you. What was was the genesis of this project? Well after Mike's Death I was at Vanity Fair and wanted to do an oral history as much as we can get away with the magazine and ask had worked as a PA.. With Mike. And I knew him mm somewhat and so I thought it best to join forces and so we did this for the magazine originally and it was so interesting and there was so much material that it just kind of presented itself as a book kind of instantly. As soon as we saw together in the magazine they must have been painful to have to cut. Had it down to magazine size well. The piece was originally assigned at six thousand. Words ran at eleven thousand and still not a word practically about his theater career hear about his time at the compass. Players is a founding member of Improv. I mean there's so much still on the table Ash you're very lucky person having worked as the PA.. What did you work on? I worked on Charlie Wilson's war. That was my first job out of college. I was so upset on hangs Julia Roberts. What was that often? Yes Oh right. Of course. It was a big movie so very often. You felt very distant from where the the real real action was taking place but still. I really feel blessed who've been able to be as close as I was. So you mentioned Charlie. Wilson's war my immediate reaction. Shen is Oh my God. That's Mike Nichols. Also the thing that I think people don't even fully appreciate now is just how incredibly accomplished. He was and for so long so if we could just kind of begin with his I think I real fame fame was with Nichols and may but before we go into each of those stop. Just take us through because I think people may be associated him with the graduate and a couple of other major projects. But let's just list some some of them so people have a sense. Well there was the great success of the Nichols. and May Elaine. May and Mike Nichols as a comedy team. which kind of transformed formed Comedy really and Mike as Director. He and Neil Simon joined forces and he really kind of in a way. Reinvented invented Simon. For Neil Simon. You know with barefoot in the park and the odd couple and as of film director his first film was the Richard Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor. Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf which frank rich other people believed to be the maybe the best reputation of a of a stage play for film ever the graduate which was second film his second film shocking. JFK transformative you know and Oscar worthy. And then there's all all the stage work Tom Stoppard's the real thing David Raves hurly-burly streamers. Yeah camelot and S- Pamela camelot idle. I mean it's kind of prodian extraordinary range of of gifts that that he I mean. He Directs Spam Lot. I I think two years after doing angels in America for HBO. I mean that's range. I don't WanNa go too much into his early life by. I think it's important to point out that this was a person who arrived here. Didn't speak English. Not as first language goes to the University of Chicago right he meets Elaine. May let's start there. What was it that made that pairing so extraordinary? What did they do? You said that they revolutionized comedy Elaine may was the dangerous genius that entered Mike Nichols life and and changed him she was kind of a combustion engine and he was the steering wheel a little bit. Steve Martin told us the first time. When you listen to those records those bits or you know the sketches? which is he said that the that I heard irony brock kind of modernity to comics situations and things that comedians did not go? Nya such as the cost of funerals was is the time of Jessica Mitford the the American way of death. And you know I mean these are weighty subjects adultery a- adultery right the previous generation of comics from the fifties where people who came from Vaudeville and the Borscht Belt Nichols and may had a theater background around. And you know both the classical repertory but also as Improv actors and by the way they're also both at analysis and brought a level of psychological acuity to comedy that really hasn't been seen before let's just a clip of them from that period some day Arthur. You'll get married and you'll have suit of your own and honey when you do. I only pray that they make us suffer the way you. That's all I pray to mothers. Okay mom thanks for calling you very sarcastic. I'm doing my best now. You call me on on the telephone I me. I'm sorry I'm sorry that bothered you and look I didn't make you feel bad. Are you kidding I feel awful. Oh honey if I could believe that I'd be the happiest mother it's true. What do you think I feel crummy Arthur honey? Why don't you call me sweetheart? That's the one bit. That's kind of in a way close to auto biography at least for Mike that was sort of his mother in a way and and he had a difficult very difficult relationship with her. Are you know after the death of his physician. Father they were really plunged into poverty into serious poverty in in New York. He I used to have to go in the olden days to the Museum of TV and radio to watch these old clips. But now I I'm imagining that. You can see all of this on Youtube. Yeah there's a lot of great stuff and Youtube I encourage people to also look up there The award for total mediocrity that they did at the Emmys when you're in the nineteen fifties so that's just breathtaking. I just actually making fun of their own mirror. You know I mean they're making fun of show business with a successful right away. They were both part of this. Very heavy kind of avant-garde guard group called the compensator in Chicago and the two of them just clicked as their manager. Jack rollins later said there. They were like ham and eggs. They were a local will hit first then they came to New York. He signed them up his clients started booking them at local nightclubs and they were hit right away and then they started going non Jackpot and omnibus and they were hit nationally. So yeah it was. It was really just like that. It was that quick. How does it get from that to? Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf well well they had a great success Nichols and may on Broadway at the Golden Theatre was an evening with Nichols in May ostensibly directed by Arthur Penn.. You know but not really and Elaine was just sort of tired of doing it and in a way was the comedic version of of the Beatles. Breaking up people were just. I just chop fall in. You know it's tragic. Yes yes yeah. It was kind of a loss in a way They would wind up working together. Other eventually you know as a screenwriter and director but but Mike it kind of put him in in the wilderness for a while He was really at see if we rely on a little bit. When he's got that evening on Broadway with a lame the theater? They were in shared an alley with a theater where her camelot was on stage with Richard Burton and they would kind of hang out after after the show and that's how he kind of got to know him and it was. It's essentially through that meeting Richard in that alley and threw him Liz. They were the ones who hired for Virginia Woolf. When you think about the collaborators he had the people he got to work with you mentioned Arthur panel the you know lately Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor Dustin in Hoffman Jewels pfeiffer on carnal knowledge? It's just you know on and on Meryl Streep the biggest names and your subtitle is is Mike Nichols as remembered by hundred and fifty of his closest friends. Did He. Frequently form friendships during these professional collaborations was. He's one of those the people that everybody felt like they knew. And we're close to make exactly this actors and and many was writers really kind of fell in love with him. I mean we could have called the book seduced by Mike Nichols you know Natalie. Portman really wept recalling. Her work with Mike Sue now. Yeah and that was much later and the closer yes. Yes but also they did stage work together so they were totally devoted to him. I I mean Tom Stoppard. For example said I think his advice memorial you know he thought to himself who is there to to write for he so he was kind of an Avatar to all of these. She's tremendously gifted complicated. People and the friendships were very deep. And Very Real Maureen Dowd. Your colleagues said that he was a null coward figure with the Jersey Kaczynski past and unlike a lot of other people who had a really horrible childhoods he did not kind of wear it on his sleeve and he we've talked about it and didn't particularly want to spend a lot of time thinking about it and I I mean I think this is kind of the key to his career. Longevity Eddie is that he was. Somebody really always wanted to be living in the moment. And kind of looking forward to the next project even up until the end of his life when he had several things that were in progress including masterclass terrence. McNally's play that he was gonNA adapt for. HBO With Meryl Streep. Yeah I mean in a way. Our title is taken from a a model of Mike's life isn't everything but it's kind of a misnomer because it was everything to him. You know in a way I mean he could be difficult to and and some of the people in the booker occur quite open about yes. That Emma Thompson is one right exactly Thompson who who adored him. You know said we're not talking about some saint here so you know and in fact Mike toward the end of his life felt that he had been cruel to people and had betrayed others. You know but he did develop a music also about someone who sort of as much of a genius as he was you know he was also complicated difficult cat and felt like there were people to apologize to. Some people presumably wouldn't talk to you Elaine. May of course wouldn't what about Diane Sawyer and were there other people who you pursued and just said you know what no now. We did approach. Diane we wouldn't have done this actually without her been addiction you know and she gave us the same response that initially initially Sam Beckett gave to digital bear you know which is. I'm not going to stop you but I'm also not going to help you all that much. But when push came to shove and we needed the people such as Meryl Streep she was helpful behind the scenes and Elaine. She did. Give us a blurb. Although we didn't use it and the blurb facetiously officiously said well I I would tell you all I know. But they're going to pay me millions of dollars to write my memoirs something. You'll never do you know. She meant it as kind of a joke before before we go one final question what do you each of you. Thank was Nicholas's greatest work and then also so perhaps a personal favourite may be less known or just something new especially leaden. And why. Let's start with you ash. I would say probably the graduate. It's not the most original choice but I just have seen the movie so many times and I think that it it just has held up so much better than a lot of other youth movies of the time that it was sort of lumped in with that plus the the comedy albums is sort of where my original enthusiasm for him started. But you know I I think catch twenty. Two for example is a movie that has not really gotten. It's do. I think it's actually kind of a brilliant movie that was overshadowed by Mash at the time though it is I see no reason why the existence of Mash prevent people from enjoying it today not an easy novel to adapt to know and but I think him and Buck Henry and we did a credible job adapting it. Sam will I mean. It's so hard to choose. My mother would choose working girl in or Silkwood you know an but are you. Seeing your mother would be wrong. My mother never wrong But for me it's you know the stage work is kind and of extraordinary. I mean the Philip Seymour. Hoffman death of a salesman at the end of life using that was really just is an extraordinary unearth accomplishment. Really it brought him Full Circle Because that streetcar with the two original productions that changed his life really all right. I'm hoping that this interview. If nothing else forces everyone to go to youtube everyone to go and stream every single thing that Mike Nichols did that was available. He was such an incredible credible talent ash. Carter Sam cash. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much thank your new book is called. Life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred

It is a class as much better. It it's really good. Because Jack Nicholson is I would say probably his best movie in my mind, in my estimation. I'll let you have that. But a log you. Either way. That's my number twenty. Okay. One flew over the coups nest. Okay. Hard to say on a podcast apparently in a mental institution yet that that is well, yes, great one.

Gosh, I love that movie. Yeah. That's a super gets Gatewood. And it's got Edward Norton in it. It's one of his best movies. Although he's been in a lot of amazing movies. If you haven't seen that movie definitely want to check out. It's about a guy who is in the Nazi who gets out of prison and moves home, and he in prison becomes friends with some black people, and he doesn't wanna be neo-nazi anymore, but his brother's falling into the whole neo-nazi movement. Very violent, very violent. It was a it was a. It's like openly violent. So if you aren't willing to watch a movie that is physically like visually violent yet. Don't watch American history and earned ever nor Academy Award nomination for best actor though, I don't think he wanted. But definitely awesome. No. He did not. But they should've. Yeah. No, it's incredible credible number. So my nineteen is the original matrix only matrix nine hundred ninety nine with Keanu Reeves. Yeah. That was a mind blower when it came out. It is it's a huge. My what I I didn't even think about that movie. When I was doing my list. But let's definitely your list is sub par to mind. See if it was my list, I would see them all the matrix fees. But the first one is the best one. But I would say the the first one is beyond all of the. Yes, it was when that came out. I was like nothing else and it chain. Changed the game. Yeah. Changed all of American cinema. Like how how movies were directed? How things happened? How cinema happened like in like even in LA? Like, it changed the way people filmed movies. So the interesting of the directors the which hausky which hausky brothers at the time. Now sisters. There. They both had transition there continue their sisters now. Where were we at night, you're nineteen eight my number eighteen is. Apocalypse Now who that's a classic one of my favorites. That's one I discovered in college. It's one that you can kind of. I haven't seen it in a while. But it's super good. And you get on a tricky binge, and you can just watch that movie over and over again, and you pick up something different every time. Vietnam war movie. Probably I would say one of the better. I don't know there's lots of good war movies. But it's up on my list Francis Ford Coppola who also directed what? Jerry. Like, so many different movies, directed the godfather. I believe right. Yeah. All of them and. Yep.
