Nancy Pelosi Won't Present Bill to the House That Protects Justices
"Nancy I call your Nancy Sundance Bologna I mean Pelosi On the Fox business channel on Capitol Hill yesterday Nancy will you vote for a bill to protect the justices Nancy And I'll tell you why this is so relevant in so many ways cut three go So yesterday nearly 50 members of Congress sent over a letter to House speaker Nancy Pelosi urging her to bring the Senate bill to the floor for a vote And then when she was pressed by Fox business on this whether she was going to do that Pelosi dodged the question I think that need for protection should relate to whatever threat that it's there and that's a judgment that is made by our law enforcement people You have to build madam speaker It passed unanimously Do you have a plan to bring it up for a vote in the House And protection depends on the threat And that's up to the law unfortunately So the Senate passes unanimously a bill to increase protection of Supreme Court Justices because shockingly they're not well protected And Pelosi won't bring the vote won't bring the bill to the floor of the house to vote on

"And compared to either of them, the most effective of the three movies is happening, which is a French film about a woman. It's a fictional film, set in 1963, a young woman who's in the university finds herself pregnant and realizes that that is going to destroy her academic career. And that she wants to terminate the pregnancy is immediately contravened by doctors who work against her interests, friends who ostracize her, a guy who tries to sleep with her because she's already pregnant and he doesn't have to worry about the consequences. The way that she is treated in 1963 is horrifying. You get a really visceral portrait of what it must have been like to go through that. At that time, it's hardly a cheery picture, and it's rough to watch. But of the three movies, I think it is the most effective at depicting that era and what it must have been like to be in that kind of desperate circumstance. Yeah. Well, call Jane as of this recording does not have distribution yet, although I'm sure considering the cast and all of the people involved, it will be out at some point. The genes was actually an HBO Doc, so that'll be on HBO at some point later this year. And happening is being distributed by IFC and film nation. So hopefully that will also be seen soon. Well, I think that's our roundup, right? Of Sundance for now. Some of the many pictures. We saw a lot of good stuff here. I think people have a lot to chew on and think about and we just wanted to give you a little bit of a taste. So we want to know if you have been able to check out Sundance, let us know what you think about this year's festival. Find us at Facebook dot com.

"I liked the premise, but I thought the performances are really, really strong, especially RJ caller, who also gave a really great performance in the harder they fall last year than Netflix, western. So it was great to see him here. So that's emergency and it's being distributed by Amazon Studios. So I'm sure we'll be seeing that soon. So after Yang was another one that I really loved, it's by the director of koga nata, who I've been a fan of since Columbus, which came out a few years ago, that starred John Cho. And Haley Lu Richardson, who is also in this film. And I really, really loved this movie a lot. It's a quiet film. It's sort of set in this not too distant future, perhaps. And it stars Colin Farrell and Jodie Turner-Smith as a couple who have adopted a Chinese girl. And they buy a Chinese, I guess, what's the right word for it? Android. Android. Yes. An Android, who is his whole purpose is to help that child sort of connect with her roots at her Chinese roots because Colin Farrell and Jody charter spent are not Chinese. So it's a really beautiful and thoughtful sort of meditation on sort of cross cultural relationships and dynamics and parenting and also what it means to be a sibling. And I really loved it. I think coconut is such a astute and smart filmmaker when it comes to touching and getting into emotions. Bob, did you enjoy after eating? I love that you the first word you used to describe this was quiet. Because I kept turning the volume off on this movie. Because everyone in it speaks in murmurs. This is a problem in a lot of movies these days to be honest, but yeah, especially this one. This is one where I felt myself pulling away from it all the time because I was noticing the set design and the beauty of the images. He is an extraordinary filmmaker in terms of the visuals, and I would describe my reaction as admiring it more than liking it, but it is gorgeous. I mean, just gorgeous to watch. And very hushed. I would love to have had a character get excited at some point. Angry. It's kind of muted in a way. But I think I was just along for the ride and really appreciated it. So that's after Yang, it's being distributed by a 24. And before we close, I think there's one sort of theme, we've all seen everyone has seen that Sundance this year, which is also a very timely theme. Around abortion and abortion rights and access to abortion. There were three films this year at Sundance that premiered that centered around these themes. So we have called Jane, which is a feature film and also happening, which is a feature film in the jeans, which is a documentary. I've seen the genes but I haven't seen call Jane or happening. So mentally, what did you think about these films? Let's start with the jeans. Sure. So the jains is a documentary and it's also like a kind of a cautionary tale, you know? It reminds people what it was like when women in this country had to go underground to get an abortion and risk their lives. And it was considered a crime before 1973 when the roe versus wade decision was made..

"Really? They spent time talking about how they felt about each other's bodies and their own bodies. I thought that was pretty unique. I think you can safely say that Brian De Palma has never done that. I hope not. Yeah, I like this picture a lot. And I've been describing it to people when I talk to them as feminine, not entirely feminist. But it's careful about the way that it looks at both of those characters and the situation. And they both change in the course of this film. I mean, and it's a generational thing. That's very cool to see on screen, too. And you know, I told my friend, this could be titled for rendezvous in an orgasm. There's a tagline right there. There you go. Not four weddings and a funeral. Well, you all have sold me on this. I'm definitely gonna try and check it out before Sundance ends. And hopefully everyone should be able to see it at some point in the coming months because apparently it was acquired by searchlight pictures and will be released on Hulu sometimes in the future. So isha. Great. The next movie you want to talk about is a movie called emergency, bob. I know you were really, really excited about this one. I also got a chance to see it. Tell us what it's at about. When it started, I was thinking that I was going to be looking at essentially a sort of a remake of animal House. It begins with these three guys who are friends and who are housemates in college. It's their senior year. There is a big fraternity party weekend coming up because I think they call it legendary tour where you try to hit all 7 of the fraternities. And it is doing some interesting things though about race. The opening is a sequence in a classroom where a British white teacher is exploring the N word. And that's not the place where you start an animal House. Movie. No, fairly early in the evening when they're about to go to all these parties. They come home to discover that there is a unconscious white girl on their living room floor. And none of them knows why she's there, and their initial reaction is called the police. Let's call 9-1-1. And then one of them says, maybe not a great idea, look at the optics. We are three persons of color, three students of color. And this is going to look bad enough. We've got to find some other solution. And it starts out comically and becomes less comic as it goes on and more genuinely harrowing in spots. And I found it quite emotional in the way that it articulated the friendships between these three guys and how their relationships helped to shape their reactions to what was going on. I thought it was a very interesting film. And potentially quite commercial. I think that it could go out there and become something. Oh, it definitely it definitely had another sort of Sundance crowd pleaser feel and the vein of a movie like dope that premiered a few years ago. Also, at sun dads, heavily about young people and dealing with race and what that means to be a millennial or Gen Z who is dealing with that. I appreciated that movie more than I actually enjoyed it..

"So if you're listening to the same way, so that was cha cha real smooth and Apple actually picked it up for distribution, so we'll hopefully be able to watch it soon. Now, moving on to my favorite film of the festival. It's called nanny, which is the feature debut of nicci. And it is this thriller mystery spiritual film about a immigrant, a Senegalese woman immigrant who is a nanny for a rich white couple. And on the surface, this might sound there's going to be a lot of social themes and whatnot. But this is a really beautiful, lovely story that's also very haunting and terrifying. There are actually a couple moments where I literally jumped in my seat. And it's interesting because she has this relationship with the child she's nannying, but she's also trying to bring her son to the U.S.. And so she's under the thumb of this white family. And I don't want to give away too much, but there's a lot of different tension happening between her relationship with the family and then also with her son who she can only speak to over the phone. And there's beautiful imagery and there's a lot of spiritual things happening with the themes around water and darkness. And I just think it's such a very striking debut and I'm so excited for more people to see it. I hope people see it. It also features in the lead role and a DI plays the nanny. And she is just so incredibly powerful in this film as a woman who's kind of coming undone under these circumstances. And also, the great Leslie ogams plays another character in the film. It's great to see her. Yeah, so it's a really lovely film. I hope people get a chance to check it out. And I look forward to the conversations that an engender is because it's really smart. You know, I had heard good things about this, but you said the two words that are going to make me seek it out, which is Leslie gummies. I am more of that woman. I have been in love with her since I first heard her first record. She's just fantastic. So that's nanny and it's directed again by nicci. So moving on, we have another movie called good luck to you Leo grand and I haven't seen it yet, but I know both mandoli and bob have seen it. What are your thoughts about this movie? Well, I haven't seen all the films that Sunday had yet, but so far, I think this was my favorite. It stars Emma Thompson as this retired British school teacher. She's a widow. And she's never really given to herself permission to enjoy pleasure. Enjoy sex. And so she hires the sex worker who's played by this very hunky Daryl McCormack. And he's really confident and gentle and dreamy. He's like this fantasy lover. And this film is sort of like a play. And you see these two people in a hotel room. And it's funny and it's a bit cringey in a realistic way with Emma Thompson's character. She's so nervous and embarrassed. And then we see them revealing themselves to each other and changing each other. And in the end, spoiler alert, we see her regarding her own body. And I have to say as a woman of a certain age, I appreciate this realistic depiction, you know? Sophie hide is the director and before they were shooting their sex scenes that she got naked with the stars and they kind of like, wow..

"One of the great things about the Sundance Film Festival is that you never really know what you're going to get. Each year brings a chance to stumble upon surprises and delights from filmmakers both well-known and emerging. This fear is all virtual fest is no different, showcasing an array of thrillers, comedies, dramas, and documentaries, touching on everything from misogyny to Arrested Development to racism. And we picked a few we think are worth keeping on your radar in the coming year. I'm ayesha Harris, and today we're talking about some of the best things we saw at the Sundance Film Festival on pop culture happy hour from NPR. Joining me today is NPR film critic bob Mandela. Hello bob and welcome back. Hey, great to be here. Yeah, it's great to have you here. Also joining us for her pop culture happy hour debut. I'm very excited to say it's culture desk correspondent mentally, del barco, welcome to the show, mandoli. Thank you. Thanks for inviting me to the party. Yes. This will be a very fun party, I think. So as was the case in 2021, this year's Sundance Film Festival went all virtual due to rising COVID cases. So everyone in attendance got to peruse the lineup and attend events from the comforts of their own homes rather in snowy Park City, Utah. At the time that we're taping this, the festival is still a few days from conclusion and awards have not yet been announced. But the majority of the films have already had their premieres and the three of us have each seen our fair share of movies. We figured we could highlight a few that are worth keeping an eye out for as they hopefully get wider releases in the coming months. So let's start with a movie that all three of us have seen. And I think maybe I know bob, you really love this. I'm not sure about you, man delete. But that movie is cha cha real smooth. Bob, do you want to tell us a little bit about what that movie is about? Sure. This is a by a kid named Cooper reef. Now he wrote and directed the film and stars in it. And it's about a 22 year old who is basically aimless in life who goes with his little brother to take him to a bar mitzvah. And meets a woman and her autistic child. And becomes involved with them when he gets everybody to dance at the bar mitzvah. And what happens in the course of the movie is that he embarks on a sort of a romance, and I don't want to say very much more than that about it with the mother of this child who has autism. And it's really engaging and kind of wonderful. He did a movie called house. His forte is not titles. But he makes me he makes amazing movies in which he is the most endearing, wonderful character, and in this one he's got a whole bunch of other endearing wonderful characters too. I just really like the movie. What it is is very, very sun dance. It's exactly the sort of thing that Sundance has been famous for in the past. I would compare it to little miss sunshine and coda last year and films like that that just sort of leave you feeling sort of warm and fuzzy in general. And it's just quite lovely. Did you like it Asia? I did like it. Even though we're recording this ahead of the awards, I would not be surprised if it wins like an audience award..

"You know me, I don't know much about Paul Thomas Anderson. You know, and you talk to a licorice pizza with a bunch of other people. But the whole I was waiting for you to bring this. But the whole thing with cigarettes and coffee is that's developed at Sundance too. And his whole career is like a Petri dish version of Tarantino, the same way that new line wanted boogie nights to be their Pulp Fiction. And that's where you see some of that other impact. I could never consider pull Thomas antigen a Sundance filmmaker. He started there, and then he belonged to all these other festivals. It's Berlin and can actually really Toronto that made his bones. But the Sundance effect on a filmmaker like him were the Sundance effect on a filmmaker like a Sophia Coppola, even if the films aren't really there, the context of hotshot new American indie filmmaking that Tarantino cultivated has a big impact on how those filmmakers kind of get packaged and move up through the ranks. So if any of those filmmakers were now to be at Sundance, I feel like some people would see that as a weird downgrade and they would sort of be like why aren't they? And they were film festival. Because when it comes to the absolute best of international arts cinema, Sundance has gotten there probably dozens of times, but it's more fluky as opposed to the real programming mandate. I mean, you don't look at the Sundance world cinema competition. I.

"Now, whether it always lives up to that challenge, is debatable, but in 92, there was a piece in the LA times about the state of Sundance just before it kicked off. And Jeff Gilmore who was the festival director at the time said, one of the more difficult things to do with the festival this year is to typify it, and that's a goal. We try very hard not to have 15 very slick melodramas made by white males, so it's intentional for us to show a range of different kinds of independent cinema. It's interesting that 30 years ago, this was still the line of dialog. This has always been essential to the mission of the festival, and still many of the biggest hits that have emerged from the festival have been, if not necessarily melodramas, a lot of films made by white males. And that is also a complexity, a kind of contradiction to the festival into movies like reservoir dogs and clerks constantly emerging out of this out of the snow, really. Yeah, and in that sense, you know, are they setting the somewhat static agenda for American popular cinema? Are they reflecting an agenda that's bigger than Sundance and bigger than Sundance hype, you know? It's a chicken and egg kind of situation. I mean, this is with no disrespect to the filmmakers who I think maybe on a film by film basis from Sundance, I'd prefer to Tarantino. I'm not saying that Richard linklater or a Spike Lee is a lesser artist. But let's be honest. Tarantino is the most gigantic influential important filmmaker who's probably primarily associated with this festival, right? Spike Lee and Michael more and more in Lee are in the ring. And boors in a much narrower sphere of visibility because it's documentary. And then Tarantino's also associated with Ken, because that's where he won his home door, but in a way Tarantino being not the face of Sundance, but you know its most successful son. I don't think you can blame on Sundance. I think that's just American film culture. And you know, his movie happened to be there. I don't think what am I trying to say? I don't think something may pick Quentin Tarantino what he is. And I don't think the Quentin Tarantino's appeal is tied back to sentence. The conditions were wonderful and vivid and I'm sure the people who paid a hundred bucks to watch it at the Egyptian. It was a kind of life-changing scene the Sex Pistols in a small club kind of thing. But I don't attribute Tarantino to Sundance. I think Sundance has more incremental influences across the board in the ways that you're talking about other kinds of genres and different kinds of writer director cinema in a way when you mention John sales and Barbara copple. That's kind of what I think of as part of the Sundance image for a good long time, which is good dutiful lefty liberal political cinema overseen by Robert Redford. You know, that's the vibe. I don't think that to put a finer point on it..

"The movie that we didn't use the word problematic back then, but the ear cutting scene that you referenced, which I think is a little bit of a Trojan horse for the telling of the story of the movie and probably greatly helped the movie and it probably is a very specific provocation on Tarantino's part to include that scene in the way that he did. But people took issue with that. And I would not say it was warmly embraced. I would say whether it was necessarily critics who were criticizing that sequence, it was deemed unsafe, I would say. And walkouts were well known for the film. Some film Wes craven famously walked out of the movie and didn't enjoy it. So it wasn't without controversy. I guess the idea of whether or not something being acclaimed is noisy enough to drown out those concerns. It felt like it was easier for that to happen now. Yeah, I mean, but it was also that the critics at the time who cast their lot with it were sort of casting their lot with aesthetics and style and morality is so boring and they're reaching back past the 80s back to the 70s, but they would sort of say, you know, people said that about pecking power, people said that about Scorsese or dipalma, it's almost like it's almost like reservoir dogs is maybe a way to put it where the 80s never happened. You know the not just 80s music and 80s culture but like just that kind of smoothing out and making boring of American mainstream film in the 80s didn't happen or reservoir dogs just kind of ignored it. And Tarantino was famous for saying that the 80s was the worst decade for American movies full stop. We know that the 50s and the 80s are terribly boring. You know, there's a couple of other things about the movie that I think are really fascinating. One in particular is just like I said that this is really how I became aware of what Sundance was and it sort of tricked me into thinking that Sundance was full of cool movies and cool is really not the right word I think for this festival. So Tarantino, one he studied, and I guess sort of trained slash performed at the Sundance institute. So he took this script and blocked some of the scenes with Steve Buscemi, folks like Terry Gilliam and Volker schlondorff sort of observed what he was doing with this movie, which is something that Sundance has this incredible heritage of working with young filmmakers and crafting helping them craft their careers. And Tarantino like so many before him and after him got to do this, and they basically encouraged him to kind of retain his vision, you know, that he had these unusual ideas, I think for how to stage some of these scenes for a movie that could have looked like a play and you know David mammon is sometimes accused of this as well, a lot of men talking in rooms kind of movies and I think he found a way to bring a vivacity to it in part with that. So if it is also a pretty big hit, it was a modest art house hit in the U.S.,.

"In the middle with you Adam Neiman. On today's episode, we are hopping in a time machine back to 1992. Why are we doing that? Well, it's been 30 years since Quentin Tarantino's debut film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, along with a memorable class of other filmmakers making debuts of their own. Adam is here to discuss dogs and what it means now and some other films that were remembered or not. And you know, the Sundance Film Festival is happening right now and it has a slightly different reputation than it did way back when. So let's go back 30 years ago, Adam. Reservoir dogs. You aren't there. You are an in Park City that day when the film premiered. But I'm sure them film made an impact on you. I was in Morris Cody elementary school in Toronto, Sean. I was 11 years old. I too was ten years old and we're just a couple of late 30s early 40 somethings talking about a Quentin Tarantino movie on a podcast, but yet it does feel like one of those movies that if I were to dig back into the deep recesses of my mind that maybe it's the same for you. You didn't hear about it the way you heard about the normal movies. You know what I'm saying when I say that? It wasn't like I was seeing a movie with my dad and there was a trailer for reservoir dogs. It was probably something that was either like a VHS preview or something in the back one of the many general interest magazines my family subscribed to. We're probably Entertainment Weekly, which my family subscribed, which I started reading like a little fake movie biz person when I was a kid, which is really cute. But it felt like something simultaneously that was coming, but had also been and it was a big deal that this thing had been and that a certain enclave of influential people had seen it. And now it was coming and all the boring people in your life like your parents don't want you to watch it. And all the cool people in your life are like, yeah, watch it. It's like a devil on your shoulder. I have better recall of Pulp Fiction being that way just because I literally was a teenager at that point. But I remember reservoir dogs from before I saw it. Yeah, I have the same experience. The difference, I guess, for me is I did not get a chance to see it until after I saw Pulp Fiction. And so I saw this movie a few years after the fact. And I think I actually got and perhaps this explains a bit about my predilection for hype culture around filmmakers and around movies. But I got excited about the idea of a Quentin Tarantino movie just from watching QuickTime videos of the reservoir dogs trailer over and over again on my early early windows pre 95 computer. And I don't know what it was that ensnared me that got me excited about this movie. Maybe it's a little bit about what you're talking about, but I'm not even sure at the age of ten or 11 if I had cool people in my life to tell me that this was a cool movie, how are you even made aware of its existence just aside from Entertainment Weekly? Did you have friends who were interested in this world? Did you have older friends who knew about movies like this? I had friends with.

Ep 142: How Kindness and Community Empower Todays Nonprofit Leaders (with guest John Hoffman) - test
"Came to twenty twenty one kind of annoyed annoyed that nonprofit leaders and their remarkable heroics in twenty twenty didn't get the spotlight or the recognition. They deserved we all fussed. In twenty twenty about the dearth of leadership in our society. I think folks just looking in the wrong place overlooking leaders around this country who educate advocate feed the hungry provides shelter bring beauty through the arts lead congregations to help us keep the faith all of these people right here in front of our eyes. I see it every day and it makes me kind of angry that others don't or worse still. We talked about staff board. Volunteers of these nonprofits the backbone of our society we talk about these people as nice. Nice really rubs me the wrong way. It feels really pass to me now. Kindness is a word. I can brace but i don't know that i had ever spent that much time thinking about the distinction between the two until i watched a documentary on amazon prime the film. The antidote offered me an aha moment. And i just love a good moment is i learned that the reason i embrace the word kindness is that implies action it requires commitment and in this documentary. We see through stories. Beautifully told by my friend and six time emmy winner. John hoffman the kindness. M- may be thought of as something gentle but it has real strength. John says that kindness is a weapon for change. One of the heroes. He's spotlights in the film. Says quote kindness is a practice. Kindness is a stance end quote. And so today. I want you to meet my friend and john. He and i both know this to be true. Kindness may not be the ultimate antidote.

An outright hatred that was expressed in so many ways in the country and i had the incredible good fortune of having a relationship with A nonprofit health system called dignity health.

"Okay. And that was that was once out of all sudden this this this and after we had one only snow in seattle for the winter and of course the entire city comes to a grinding halt And then we had a another sound started coming over on top of this one that sounded about the same when they made the same term but it had were less less obnoxious sound to it. They sort of went as it made the turn but it was sort of a company with a a a hard Turning when a. When i started hearing the sound became more difficult to turn the car Good don't let me get this straight. Does this noise occur as you're turning the steering wheel once you've got. The steering wheel walked to that hard left position which one of the initial the less obnoxious either one Noxious out as early as turning so as you're turning the steering wheel. The noise is consistent with your turning of the steering wheel. Okay that's good to know. And what about the second less obnoxious. what about that. One goes on as it goes to make a complete turnaround. It would be echinacea with sound if i if i had the steering wheel constant in the composition but locked in it will continue to make that sound as as you driving without turning the steering few drove a circle. This noise all the time. Make the second noise and make a second noise. what is it do it. I okay Oh wait a minute now. Did he tell us what kind of car he owns. No can we yes. It'll take you right. Is it a general motors vehicle. Is it a volvo. No it's a japanese car. Why not what's left. It's got all all. I'll how silly of me i put. I had the wrong demographics in mind. Here what are you. What's a man like you doing. Driving a chrysler vehicle for the only thing left. Not a foil. Europe were in europe. Are we were in europe german and we we cheap. German are expensive german.

And i will stake my life on this eric. Absolutely benign it is a loose piece of metal it is. It is a worn worn brake pad. Is something simple eric. Dolt that you'll life on it. My brothers nuts. yes so that is second. Noise could be the beginnings of a bad wheel bearing. No i hate to disagree. He's my brother. And i love him but he's a zero all right what you got some speculation on the second noise talking like meatball brother i. It's easy to criticise when you got no ideas of your own. Well you you want an answer to this. Yeah you want your dealer. No i know. I think the answer to this is you. You have a brake pad. That's making both of these noises. And what's happening is when you make this. Turn your hitting the little screech read on the pad and you're making the noise. Yeah there's a little there's a little plate that little read that vibrates it's supposed to be a A warning that the pads are worn. Eric just to make my brother really look like a fool column. When was the last time you had the pads replaced three years ago before about the car three years ago. Three years ago case. Eric the check out. That's where you're noises coming from.

We checked back on one of our callers to see if the advice we gave was so good so so are so so sumi player this week. It's rich from brussels belgium at your over him. I don't even remember belgium. Well according to the little card he rich called us a couple months ago because he was having a problem with this be under morning. And i turn key and nothing happened. The car was completely dead really really so. I didn't know what to do. So i cleaned the garage. There's a method to my man. is here. The car was near the bottom of my driveway. Which is kinda shaped like a all. I got it. You wanna drive into the garage and pop the clutch. Exactly i had about thirty to thirty five feet worked it did. Oh absolutely i you know. I was quick with that break. Oh that's great. I was pretty worried. You know i. I was back while the garage was coming pretty quick out of his misery. So what are we. tell them. what's wrong with the peseta. Remember we narrowed it down to eat the starter motor or the ignition switch. But since the lights the radio still work we settled on the starter motor. I think we're wrong anyway. Let's see rich. Are you there yes. I'm here all right. Look before we find out whether the starter motor was on. The fritz or deductive reasoning was on the fritz. We need to verify that the answer are about to give stump.

Yeah no kidding hitting. don't we get partial credit. While you know tom. You were right and then and then you let your your lovable brother overrule you. All that always happened. So i suggested the ignition switch. Yeah and you said. Do the lights on the radio work and i said yes and then you said absolutely the starter motor on.

'Nobody Knows Nothing' When It Comes to Hollywood
"I've always said, it's not my line. It's from William Goldman. The great screenwriter who said, nobody knows nothing. When it comes to this town and this business and it really, if you don't know William Goldman's work, you've seen it, Butch Cassidy and Sundance kid. Oh God, just so many great all the president's men just fantastic writer. I've talked about them on other podcast before. But there's something to be said about, and again, I'll get to a reason why I'm talking about this in a second, but there's something to be said about writing scripts you believe in. Rather than what's the flavor of the day, all right? What's the thing that's driving people to theaters today? Maybe if you're that way, you will make a great picture after your tenth film. Maybe it's through that way, you'll fizzle out like the people who don't have talent. Maybe at that point, they'll start sending pornographic pictures in the mail because they just don't have anything to do because they're not really talents. But that to me is the best line in the history of Hollywood, written by the best screenwriter perhaps ever. Nobody knows anything. And I think Quentin Tarantino as great as a directory is clearly exemplified

Carrie Bernans Talks Connecting with Other Actors, Confronting Stereotypes Of Black Women
"I was like eh part of every church events. You their dance department. And their easter sunday plays and stuff so i would say that was. My first start was in the church and then the second star was like in the school theater. Plays and stuff like that and then after that After high school hosted the eight in college and disembowel in college. And then i got cast in a couple of community theatre plays and musicals although i don't really saying I guess that was good enough to make you know. I think i need to use voice training so that was like my initial start and i loved theater so much. 'cause you eat the same thing and then you just get better and better and better and and it just so much fun because you're playing with people on your living in this bigger than life imaginations and just like it was is bringing things to life so that was my initial start and then i m did Single ladies on vh. one with stacey dash. Lisa ray when i was in atlanta one summer in college as well and that was my first time on like actual tv set and then it kind of grew from there. You find the on camera just clicked with you more so than theater yet. It definitely i think. I mean the either clicks with me too. 'cause i think i am. I am very loud and just like very theatrical for only slightly dramatic. I wish you pump it up a little bit. Mccurry the pop up now. Tv was also just really funny. I was just like oh. My god is so cool but tv. I had to learn how to tone it down a bit be more. Quieter more intimate. Tv wasn't adjustment. But i did find light. Tv and film was much more fun for me and it moves a lot faster to them. Theater does Which i really love in a you can do more. And you can explore more and play with more carrots As i mentioned in part one it was. Actually the ceo of we audition. Darren darn borough. Who introduced me to carry. So i wanted to take a little time out to talk to carry about how she found out about. We audition what it's meant to her and how she uses this online community to further her own craft and career. yeah discover. We had nothing when they were really just the startup where they first came out. I think dare since they started. And i don't remember where exactly i was at. Maybe i saw something ally and i was like. Oh this is cool. And i got on. I started using it. And then i think darren reached out to me and then he started putting me as like a mvp and stuff like that's all became like more engaged with it. And i love we auditioned. I think it's it's definitely helped me a lot Because i would addition a whole lot in sometimes. My friends wasn't getting the same amount additions. I was getting so. I fell back accidents. To help me with an audition. They were not addition at the moment so it was great to go to this online resource to meet other actors to get their help with an audition and they had no tied to me. I guess you could say they just wanted to practice leading or scripture acting themselves and it just has been such a brilliant platform for media's in what are the ways besides just auditioning have you been able to use it. Yeah i've met with cast directors on there. They have these coffee. Our kind of sessions where you can meet casting actors for you know five to fifteen minute conversation. I've also met a couple writers on there. I also have used. It suggests like breaking down other stuff like that. I'm writing in having actors. Read it on their mind themselves like putting my stuff on there And i've also built some incredible friendships. I went to sundance last year. And i we auditioned co-sponsor to house so it allowed us premium access to like this really nice house and then a part of the package that we paid we also provided publicist which allowed us to get some more bits that we were doing and the friendships said i made within. The house was definitely like a big win. That i've now taken in so like twenty twenty one with me and i still talk with a lot of friends.

The Trial Of The Chicago 7 With Director Aaron Sorkin And David Fincher
"Aaron thank you for letting me do this thank you for doing. I hope it's not just the right amount of excruciating. But but i wanna i wanna i wanna move this. I want to try to cover as much ground as possible. Because you know. I'm easily board but But i also want to give you But i have sort of subdivided in terms of you know just overall kind of progressions in in in casting and production and post production. I wanted to start. I I've always found your writing appealing personally. in the same way that i always love bill goldman's and and the reason for that is you're a decidedly serious person who is actually writing comedies about a dramatic ventures that have real stakes and end the example. That i have is like butch and sundance where they're debating the different ways that the super policy might kill them when he says they could go for position they can start a rockslide. That could get us that way. What else could they do. I'm treating the next line. But it's a could surrender of albion account on that. Tell me about and that was a occurred to me on social network that that you were that you were doing this thing that the the writing the the storytelling was extensively Comic in in. And i don't mean that in a derogatory lightweight sense It was wildly entertaining in talking about things. That were you know. truly dramatic and is not a is that something that you're conscious of or am my of of disappeared on my own. It's something that i'm conscious of and by the way bill goldman mentor me. Beginning from mike early twenties you know he passed away a few years ago. You know. we're very close. He was teaching me before we met with his with a screenplay with A nonfiction and then he a red by i play which was a few good men and he saw something in me. And if you want to teach me how to write screenplays but yes. I always think first of all if you can tell serious story. Funny you're you're doing yourself a big favor. Part of it might just come from an insecurity. Maybe a healthy insecurity of a comedy drama. I am not good enough at Either events do only one of them commit something pitches while or their other. I mean obviously goldman is one but are there other Heroes personal screenwriting heroes at. You can point to in sort of say this is. This is something off from them or their work. This is something that you know. Certainly tchaikovsky the answer is our number screenwriters in patty tchaikovsky For a host of reasons. Both my brothers herman joseph Billy wilder true There are things. I get from a contemporary screenwriters as well. Tony kushner quentin tarantino Amanda So i'm i'm i'm easily influenced i and the ad as a screenwriter at a now that a i've directed a couple of films I really i try to be a diagnostician. Mom I'll watch you watch film of yours Not necessarily social network Any of them. I'm end up a love. Something and i'll try and reverse engineer. I will try to in my mind. First of all figure out what it was i loved about it and then try to figure out how you got
"sundance" Discussed on Ride the Omnibus
"Renzo seemed like this was more focused. Feel free to tell me if i'm wrong but like sort of how like their disability was holding her back which i think is not necessarily a narrative that we need like. I think that we should be hearing more stories from people who have disabilities and not. Just the challenges. They face because i do think that's important as well but like the joy in their lives and like the things like make them unique in the way that they experienced the world because of their disability. And not just the way that they are held back in the world because of their disability. I think that sounded metal does a little bit of that and i really liked that. Santa metal also cast actors. Who are deaf. I think that it was also really interesting. That when he goes to live with the other people who are deaf in a community and before he knows how to sign like we don't get subtitles during the while they're signing because he doesn't understand it in he is the audience insert there until we don't understand it either unless we are people who know asl. I just think that that was really interesting choice. Especially when you get into the politics of coq. Lear implants which is definitely you. Ge- you'd controversial topic in-depth communities so i'm still interested in seeing coda partially because it has gotten such great reviews but yeah since disability advocacy is something that you're very passionate about ariel. I was really interested to hear your thoughts on it. Especially since you didn't seem to care for it as much as a lot of other people dead. And i will say it does show the joy that people who have disabilities can really bring to everything that they do. I love those joyful moments in the film. Coda i really did. But they were not enough to make up for the damaging parts of the narrative and you very succinctly put what. I was trying to dance around and shouldn't have been trying to dancer. So thank you kaitlyn. For putting it very bluntly i appreciate that and one. Other quick thing about disabilities that shocked me at this festival. Was that while they did a really great job. With captions. In terms of almost all of the content was perfectly captioned. I reached out to ask what individual films had straubing in them and nobody would respond to me at all at the accessibility desk. Either the phone number or the email. I didn't know if anyone else had had this experience with accessibility. Desks ever at sundance. This was my first sundance pretty pleased with the way everything's run but i didn't have any obstacles and i think that was worked for me. I was happy with the interface by watch television. That was. I was a happy camper. But i do read your posts a little bit ago about about these issues and i know it's coming up before near. There are certain disabilities or concerns. That are not at the top of the list for folks to our determining what people should be warned about or be concerned about in there they get wrapped around the axle about making sure they're seating and things like that which is all it's really important but there are other things like you said straubing that it's hard to. It's hard to get your arms around. That isn't a priority for people to pay attention to and But i think what happens..

Work will obviously like the coolest kids on the block or sunday morning. Yeah we're killing it. So i wanted to just quickly ask you guys. We all access the sundance film festival. In different ways in different formulations i went in with zoya who is a member of my pod on a ticket to watch everything and it was really hard to make that worthwhile because even between the two of us we could not watch all that much per day. I think we average like four things per day. How did you guys watch so we did a weekend pass and got a couple of one off tickets as well so we just did saturday sunday. I guess it was day passes for saturday and sunday. But i think we ended up watching six each day but we started at ten. Am which is the replays from the previous day's were available and so we usually get one or two in before the premier started then we just kind of slotted them in between the premiers as much as possible which was stressful sometimes I mean we got through a lot of eminent. we got tickets to the replay of the world. Come wednesday night. So i just got four one offs for the weekend. And then i bought the winners. The audience winners hats for wednesday is because i thought well since there so many films and i don't really know anything about any of them i don't have so much money or time i will let the audience curated for me a little bit and which one of those was more cost effective. I'm just curious. I know mine was leased cost effective so we can rule me out right away. Yeah i think we ended up spending. So the day passes seventy five and then individual tickets for fifteen so he saw five movies in a day than it kind of evened out. That's why we improve six. Just make the best of it. But i mean we're also sharing a pass to so so provided by two in your case. Yeah i think. I paid one sixty altogether for the one hundred dollar audience pass and then the teen dollars for four so i mean it seemed like a good value..
Finding the Judas in Judas and the Black Messiah
"The 19 sixties, Fred Hampton was chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party. He was a rising leader, organizing disparate multi racial groups in Chicago. Until police shot and killed him and another Black Panther member in an early morning raid. There's a new movie about Fred Hampton out this week, it is called Judas and the Black Messiah. It's not a question of ball. It's a non violence is a question of resistance to fascism or non existence within fascism Film got rave reviews after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last week. It's the second feature from director Shaka King who, until this project came along, was on the verge of giving up making feature films altogether. MPR's Andrew Lyne bonked takes it from here. Yes, Judas and the Black Messiah is about Fred Hampton and how he led the Black Panthers in Chicago. But it's also about William O'Neill, the man who infiltrated the Black Panthers in spied on Hampton on behalf of the FBI. Shaka King told me that the Lucas Brothers who co wrote the story, sold the idea to him like this. Their pitch that they laid out was we want to make a movie about Fred Hampton and William O'Neal. That's kind of like the departed the 2006 Martin Scorsese movie Inside the World of Cointelpro, or Counterintelligence program, the 19 sixties project where the FBI infiltrated and disrupted groups like the Black Panthers, and I was like I see it. I'm done. I'm in Judas is a tight, intense movie. Yes, like the departed and other Scorsese type crime movies. It's a long way, though, from King's first feature film newly weeds from 2013. So what you got here? Newly weeds tells the story of a young couple in Brooklyn who smoke a lot of weed where Judas is loud and fast. Really? Weeds is quiet and tender. I'm done. I'm done online. Won't want Wanna hang out. We hang up. Yeah. How are we supposed to go to the Galapagos? If you mind the bag every two minutes. It hits similar beats as movies by other indie darling directors like Joe Swanberg or the Duplass Brothers. The film Independent Spirit Awards even gave King the Someone to watch award after it came out, which came with a $25,000 grant. Not bad for someone fresh out of N Y. U film school. But after that initial fanfare, I was so depressed after making newly weeds and my expectations for the release just not coming to fruition. The movie didn't get much attention outside the festival circuit from agents and distributors, largely because it was a movie with black actors who no one knew on at that time that was deemed worthless. The film's release in 2013 wasn't that long ago, but it was just before what a friend of Kings jokingly dubbed. The Black Excellence Industrial Complex. You're Selma's and Moon Lights and Black Panthers when movie studios realized they could make a lot of money by releasing films by and starring black people. Nearly weeds. Loss of momentum burnt king out on the idea of making another feature film, But he did have an idea for a short rolling around in his head. It was kind of silly kind of outrageous, sweetheart. Lips. Excuse me, miss. It's called Moon Yang's after the Italian slur for black people want heard on the streets of Brooklyn in it, King and two others play these three black guys who talk like they're in the mom movies. King has such a fondness for It was somewhat inspired by King's experience growing up in a mostly black part of Brooklyn, but going to high school in South Brooklyn, where everyone the Irish Americans, Greek Americans, Asian Americans, Jewish Americans, all talks like the Italian American kids, and those kids were Hilarious. They were profane. They were quick witted, and we were not friends put like I could appreciate their sense of humor. The movie is a concise examination of race, gender gentrification. As King's character gets into an argument with his sister over a MetroCard, you did not have a dime. Put 1000 until the white guy comes by and says hi to the sister. Hi. How you doing? How are you? You guys just don't know what both outta here. Oh, Polluted the movie is fun and poignant, and the process reminded King how much he loved making movies. That movie saved me. You saved me. I didn't see that or know that about Shaka. But I could understand, and I could see how that could happen. Charles de King, no relation to director Shocking is the CEO and founder of Macro which since its founding in 2015 has produced movies and TV shows featuring non white people, including Judas and the Black Messiah. It was before the oscarssowhite moment. Of 2015. There's a lot that's happened since then. There is much more of an openness and I think an understanding of the business opportunity there. Which brings us to King today, making a movie about an anti capitalist black radical at a very capitalist Hollywood studio without watering down the politics. The deal is to respect the authenticity. Fred Hampton Jr is the current chairman of the Black Panther Party, Cubs and son of Fred Hampton. He says he and the other Panthers had their guards up when they were approached about this film. The Panthers have long been subjected to propaganda campaigns and misrepresentations. But he says King and the rest of the cast and crew definitely navigated the crossroads between their creative goals and the Panthers. Political ones. Well enough, anyway. Revolutionaries never satisfied. You know, I wish there was more political cartoon. We could've pushed. In a certain point, However, I'll put the people's need before before my needs my wants and desires. For instance, the relationship between Fred Hampton and his partner, Deborah Johnson, was a tricky thing to get right. The poet.
Apple's future: A look at iPad, MacBook M1
"Sure that the ipad was on its way to replace the mac as those two platforms collided. Then keep the one macbook. So let's talk about the future apple those pesky rumors of a b. headset. This is your daily charge who begged pontificate about where all this is going. Then scott stein editor at large and apple expert so your commentary today looking at the potential merger of the ipad and mac book. But as you as you write today the perspective that you've had for awhile now shifted a lot because the m one you talk about that. Yes i've been. I've been trying out a loner. Unit of an apple. Mac book because i was curious and i heard great things about it and i thought okay and max work and i been mainly focused on looking at ipads and i've been writing about the ipad. Mac like dream merger for years like probably a decade and it did change my perspective in a way that i thought it might Apples chips on these are are trying to make max run a lot more smoothly instantly. Which is the territory. That i think i. I really put on ipads and on phones which was like. Oh this deferens really fast. It seems like get things done. Launched things quicker. Why can't you do that is easily on a on slogging laptop. Those problems having been solved on the on the air. And so well. I think also removes a lot of that uniqueness from the ipad and so it makes me wonder what is the ipad for and if and also if the mac can do this now really well with 'em one chip why can't the ipad to. Yes so it's interesting because you feels like it's a bit of a divergent for divergent idea from what you'd previously thought it was like. Do you still see these two platforms merging because it seems. Apple is intent on keeping them. Separate i think they have to merge and. I think apple's claims in this about keeping them separate or are posturing. Because i think that you know for years now we have been seeing them get closer and we've seen things introduced. That apple didn't seem what they were going introduced like a stylus or keyboard and track pad support You know things that are are transforming usb into Something that is more. Mac like were traditionally computer like but every year we get to this point of. When are we going to cross to becoming too doing even more in in the irs. Ripe pat os is more siloed off. It has advantages but it also holds back on flexibility. And i think in in a time of of lockdown where. I have not gone out. I need my home equipment. The mac book is extremely versatile. And i think that that versatility needs to flow more into the i. I think that answers my next question. I should ask anyways at this point. Like what do you find more useful and ipad pro the top line at that pro or one of these macbooks with an one processor. I think the mac book for what i do because you know what am i doing. I'm i'm i'm zooming a lot. I am testing out things. That may have extra weird browser hook whether it's a virtual sundance festival or stuff like that things that you know a lot of times were or zoom theater piece for what i cover. They will say we don't recommend an ipad for this. We don't recommend it you know. We prefer use laptop. So it's better safety zone for me for what i'm covering that being said i think i still feel like the ipads presentation for videos for for games as fantastic but no longer say that. It's the place for the best battery life or the best instant feel. I can just as easily. If you're shopping for an m one mac book you get that same thing you know and and that rock solid reliability is really impressed me so what really frustrates me is that people have to make a choice and i think apple made a really hard for people to decide and they launched these at different staggered windows. You where the ipad does not emerge at the same time and then then once it comes out. It's being seen as the computer of the future. So you know which one is. So i think they have to merge. Yeah you talked about some of the advantages of the ipad. Go into the am one like one that book on run apps really quickly you know. Obviously one of the key traits of an ipad over. Mac is still at touchscreens Touchscreen ever makes it over to the mac really right the macbooks. Apple's maximum the last domain. Were there's no touchscreen like everything else that i can think of is introduced it a long time ago. Were made a choice for some reason to maybe not super focused by touchscreen and stylus support shore or have it flip around be modular. You know. that stuff's been out there for so long. It's obvious. I think apple does seem focused on also people using multiple devices so there's always been a proposition of get both which is not realistic. I think if you get to a high enough price. The the ipad is cost as much as a mac book air. So why can't it be. Why can't those high end models be fully.

Take My hand was Dr King's favorite zone and Sistema Hey, you're Jackson was my idol. She was my hero. I love this. So much listening to singer Mavis Staples praising my Hayley and Jackson is just one highlight of the film. In a normal year. There'd be long lines of festivalgoers standing in the snow to get into theaters to watch. This year films will be screened virtually through especially built online platform, says the festival's new director, Tabatha Jackson. The global pandemic hit And we realized that we had to re imagine everything. Jackson says her team wanted to create a wafer, filmgoers and filmmakers to gather will be able to chat with each other in virtual waiting rooms. Then watch film premieres together before asking questions of the casts and crews, and that's to preserve the energy and the excitement on the buzz and the conversation. In that moment, as we are confined in our Safe spaces. This is an opportunity to go out into the world and be taken around the world by some of these films as an international festival dedicated to independent filmmaking, the Sundance Community prides itself on being a bit scrappy.

Couldn't navigate the icy streets of Park City can now come to Sundance. We're bringing Sundance to them. This year, Half the films at Sundance were directed by people of color as well as by women.

Among the feature films to watch for is Koda, about a hearing girl whose family is deaf, also sons of monarchs, about a Mexican biologist and flee and animated film about an Afghan refugee. Other highlights included documentary about choreographer Alvin Ailey and another about the life and career of actress Rita Moreno.

We felt a cinema house in this virtual environment, and there's an extraordinary gallery off new work.

"But there's more to be said on the topic obviously Okay yeah this is absolutely so fascinating to me. I am so glad that you shared it in that. You're on your. I have so many questions in front of the kentuckiana. We'd have to talk while flying or we're going to have to wear a part two three four and five or whatever Because this is fascinating to me and like you said. I think a lot of people didn't think about this. Or wanna think about it until recently. And i know that for me i i was pretty much a non believer most everything until i went to peru in had in you know a ten day. Alaska journey with a shaman. In then i was like whoa. Obviously i have no idea of what is out there because i definitely traveled to different places and it was the first time around like well. There's way more than we know about right now and it was fascinating i wasn't i had I have four ceremonies and are all different in. They were somewhere really. Good like the best of the best in the darkest ever experienced in my life. But all i mean it's sounds like a cliche thing especially because i was kinda got popular in a weird way a about the time i did which was unfortunate but whatever but incense cliche but it was life changing whence you kind of experience. Something outside of yourself like that. Yeah it changes everything. I really absolutely it. Well yeah it'll change. Interact with their surroundings completely. And i feel like i think part of the reason that we've gained so much traction in like this community in the last six months is in part because people are experiencing shift in time with the way that like quarantine happened. People are being forced to be more introspective. You're seeing people who are actually like unless being pushed into being open to it because we're actually experiencing a dimensional shift. We are three beings living in what appears to be a three d. universe but it's actually like seven layers or something in actually moving into five d in move movements like this only happen every twenty six hundred years so this is what like the mayan calendar predicted as the end of the world. Actually shifting dimensional. So that's i think why were gaining like a large number of people who are like interested almost seemingly out of nowhere which is really cool and this is such a weird thing to bring up but also one this actually this movie out right after we got back from peru in. i saw doctor strange which is a marvel. Movie like seems creek. They talk a lot about stuff like this and there were so many. There were visuals. That took me right back to peru. And i'm like whoa did did everybody. Who wrote this in the visuals. Like have they done. Alaska like they bid like in they talk about different dimensions and the astral plane and all this stuff and you know. It's a dubbed the fantasy movie. But it's like there's a lot of principles that that they talked about which i thought was really cool because also i think just gave people a little bit more of an open mind to start having a conversation about it at least which i thought was kind of fascinated who thought from marvel movie infesting within a lot of flake mainstream media. Like i feel like after. I started traveling regularly. I've seen a lot of stuff in like netflix. Show that kind of thing where i'm like. Oh i've seen that before. These people probably also did some version of so. It's interesting once he do it. You start to see stocks that you wouldn't have before. Yeah that's that's true. Yeah that happens like you if you buy a certain kind of car than you see it all the time all over the place all of a sudden things like that but yeah this but there's definitely there certainly has been a shift to so it's just cool. It's really cool. That with this people are kind of experience in talking about it. I'm glad you shared it. Thank you so much for your sharing that it's so it's it's fascinating how to condense the two minutes. He did a really good job. I could not have done it.

I'm a freelance film critic from the northern suburbs of chicago. I've known brian for over a decade Sundance for ten years. So that's pretty crazy not to sundance film festival. I'm just excited to be on the stock casts a lot of fun variant formative very interesting so excited to give a little bit of insight. Something that islay beer. Yeah that's awesome. Yeah i'm really excited to have you on to. You've been on a when. I did another podcast deeply. Update you're on a couple of different times just because we have a lot of similar interests in movies and stuff so a good addition to that was really excited to have you on the show. Yeah a decade. That's wild to it's crazy wild to believe but true. Yes so All right well. I'll go first on mine and this who she is going to be a kind of a funny one. But it's a food. Slash recipe ended its homemade popcorn so the census is kind of the sundance family. I figured at the. I wanna talk about popcorn. Because i haven't really made popcorn without a microwave popcorn or jiffy pop or something. And i really wanted to talk about this actually making it from scratch it super easy. There's no chemicals. There's no crappy oils in preservatives. Who knows what's in those microwave bags and it's actually. It is super easy. It's probably cheaper as well and it tastes better way better than anything else you can get. So there are four categories of coroner. I actually found this out for the show. They're sweet corn field corn ornamental corn and then popcorn. So of course you know when i was a kid. I just thought you'd like how do they make popcorn. Must just cut it off the the husk and put it in the fryer or whatever pops that's not true so it is a specific kind of corn. So you do have to get that but again it's super cheap and you. It's very easy. I take third cup. The popcorn kernels and i put a little bit of oil. I use canola oil in a in a big pot. You do wanna big part because it will pop in. You need a lead for that. Obviously you heat up the oil you put in the popcorn and within a couple minutes it starts popping and you kind of shake the pot around you know to move the corn oil so it doesn't burn and stick and once it's done popping. It's pretty obvious. And then you. And i would say let the air pressure come up a little bit what i do then. I put real butter. I put nutritional yeast some parmesan salt in. I put pepper. Twos my secret ingredient. Mix it all up together and there you go. You're ready for your at home popcorn Sounds amazing so good yeah. It's it's wild to me because it's so easy. But i just never did it. You know. I just did way popcorn. Whatever it's also fun when you have friends over to just make it you know it it pops. It's just. I don't know it's just funny. You're by yourself or is an activity but six at super easy. It sound super. Easy and disowns awesome parmesan to another guy seriously real butter. You know 'cause you're not gonna get that with microwave popcorn you're not going to get real butter. You're not gonna get that. You know whatever you want you can add some rosemary you. You can sleep at up if you want. You can do all kinds of things but you know since we're kind of in the pandemic life especially because the theaters disclosed again but were still watching movies. Were watching at home and this is just kind of more fun option to have your popcorn with movies. So yeah it definitely gives like Especially like for errands and stuff like that. Like doing their kids to like. Make up home with your kids kind of go idea. Yeah absolutely. I think that would be a lot of fun to yeah. That's also great. You're up the thing that i've basically been obsessing over..

"I'm trying to remember. I know. I always said like the harry potter movies. I never it was never like i was against them. I did think with twilight first came out. I probably thought. Oh gosh this pretty silly you know like. I don't know if i can watch it absolutely. Yeah it is become such a phenomenon. I'll i will say that. I do remember very specifically. I can't remember where i was going. It would be really cool. If i was going to sentence but i remember being in the airport and seeing that the twilight books and remembering wow. I have no idea what this is. But that's a really intriguing cover. Whoever did her art cover or the art cover for it was genius because it was it definitely got my attention right a bat and you know when you're in the airport you're usually a lot of people look for books idea too but i remember stopping in my tracks and wanting to find out more and then the i when i found i guess the thing that i was such a traditionalist in the vampire genre and i was like sparkles in son that go in there so i probably did have some kind of it wasn't i don't think it was like oh. This is geared for teenage girls. I can't read. This was kind of like appearance. I guess in too much into that. But i've seen clips I just need to go there. I needed now more than ever probably need to dive. And and i will say when when the books i come on i love why fantasy so i'll read everything and when they came out i was in my twenties. I got to the chapter where they all play baseball. Because it's vampires favorites or and i promptly shut the book. I shut the book. And i was like i cannot take anymore and i i never revisited. It years later when they they announced the movies. I was like robert pattinson. I am back on. And i very quickly finish the book and would did it for me was the first movie. I didn't even see on opening. Doug came out like it happens and it was in i grope in this town called oaks only had one of those like you know little cheaters. Where like second run movies. Go for like five bucks. I went to see it there with my friend. I and we die like we thought it was the funniest thing ever you went and saw immediately almost again and then i remember going to the diner. We sat donald. Let's make a spoof of this and we spent weeks writing squeeze vote. There was just the two of us. We wrote a mice. We got my boyfriend at the time to help us film it. It was a little point and shoot. I edited it. And that bonding experience. Like just really like solidified. My love for the movies and they're dumb movies. They are not good movies. But i love how they just the subject matter like. They're doing what they can from. The books and the books are really stupid but the first one catherine harvard really tried to bring some sort of semblance of realism to it. Like these are just two teenagers falling in love and surely tried that was all discarded once they made money and they went to the new ones. That was like gonna make millions of dollars now. But i can't explain why like. And when i latched onto a gun in like two thousand eight me and my friend had moment. I went so all the other movies. I drag friends so that. I thought it was fun but then i kind of dog my life like the last few years like i. Would you know people would bring it up. I had mentioned it but in the last maybe two years or so. It's like slowly been coming back onto everyone's radars and they think it is because the tweens and teenagers are now of an age where they're like thinking about it again and and like its back and i think also like robert pattinson kristen stewart becoming so famous on their own like it just inevitably gets mentioned and then you know robert patents now being batman you cannot arisons like sorry. Decide to become a batman. We're going to make fun of it like we can't not make fun of that but it's Yeah this phenomenon is very interesting and and a sparkly. Vampires are definitely very silly regardless of whether for teen girls or not. But i i do find it really interesting. How few movie franchises or are the are. Just four girls. That gel blake the only thing that could even come close to this success. Numbers would be like frozen. But i would say frozen is more of a family thing and it's not really a love story it's like the first ones masses love story but it's about sisterly bonds in the second one is finding yourself and i don't think they're they're can be compared but like so very late. Not often enough. Do like young girls like things that are for girls like romance get the chance to like dominate the world at. I think that's queer. Yeah no that's super cold. So i guess we have to say so. Ut edward Absolutely yeah okay. Yeah now and that. That's the vampire the the where will situation no. No one can actually be team jake of of your team out there. You must evaluate your life choices that led you to that moment. Am i asked you if you understand. Okay you need to watch them all and then let me know. You're gonna love trying. Well it's okay so there's so many things i love about this first of all i love the you're such a fan and so many other people are fans knowing that you use at the movies Pretty ridiculous but you'd still love it. That's something that. I don't think we embrace enough. That is totally okay to know that this is ridiculous or whatever not good and you can still absolutely love it. Because there's so much of like i don't like it because it's not good so i can't like it and no one wants to admit that i love the fact that the fandom doesn't take itself too seriously earliest the movies in everything so that super bowl super super colby and also the fact that that kristen stewart and robert pattinson those could have been movies defined them so they you know you hear about people that never get work and all of this happens but they end. It took them a while. I think everybody tried to lock them down into that silliness but a shattered it and now they're both pretty well respected actors and it's that's really cool 'cause that's also rare like this broke the mold in so many different ways which is really great. Yep absolutely and even Anna kendrick is in the twilight as a human allow. Those are those are some of her earlier movies. I probably she'll never talk about. But by the end there were so many. It was one of things where it's like. Oh you like how in harry potter. Every british actor ever borne ended up having a cameo at one point but at the end of twilight. Michael sheen was a vampire. Ramey malik has a cameo as leap paces. A vampire like dakota fanning is of Everybody in in this movie fire. And why would you not be. Why would you not be but yeah that you mentioned about like having fun. I think i feel like with movies. People get so bogged down with like thinking. It needs to be taken seriously to be like or i don't know i find that with a lot of the like marvel superhero movies. It's like oh. It can't be bad. Because i love it so much. It has to be like the greatest movie. It's like it can be your greatest movie of all time but it can also be a bad movie like i. I wish people would just embrace liking bad things like i. I don't believe in the freeze guilty pleasure. Because i like. I am not guilty about liking twilight. Like i'm not guilty about like any the things that i like. That are inherently stupid. And i feel like if we could all just be like that. I think maybe film twitter would be a happier place where it wasn't just angry all the time we've just right or just taking movies to like. There is nothing about the marvel franchise that should be taken seriously as it is but like stole the end the dc franchise to those movies are like bibles to people. And it's like these are men and women and types avenue and lake like what like a man turning agreement he gets angry to me is like justice..

four dollar furnace tune up which includes a nineteen point safety inspection Scott hail amazingly different surprisingly better Scott hail dot com so I was you're do you remember big **** show a man maybe three years ago or maybe a little more where I I had a head wound you remember that now so I was yeah yeah I remember we then I think they're in Galvan plaza debating on whether he should go to the emergency room at stitches so so the night before the big gash show hi for some reason just in the middle of the night I was sound asleep found myself flying through the air and I hit my head on the back of my head on the table I remember now and and I don't know what how that happened you know I mean I just don't know how it happened other than I was in the air and fell on the floor it was a I was on my Debian and I I I remember so my wife was looking at it and and she said oh eight eighty I should stitches and she said no you don't need stitches remember we have the EMTs guys at well I know I should tell you when I got to the big gash show the name them the next morning somebody said Hey you know you got blood running down your neck and I what what what happy and so I went to the EMTs there in a gallon so they said yeah you probably should have stitches in that but it's too late now right now he said here will we'll just bandage it up and I said well if you're going to put a bandage on it make it big and so but they wrap gauze all around my head and stuff and I wandered around they've the biggest show all day go is it I have a headache I have a head wound this is a head wound that's all it that's all it is and so but the same thing happened to me Friday night I was sound asleep and then all of a sudden I was flying through the air and I hit my show all on the side table get ready wow reward so you think you need to get rid of your night stands I don't join soldiers to perform padding I mean now this happened this is happened twice in four years or five years or some I don't know your kids it's his his a big bruise like the inside of his bicep I can't even imagine how you would I don't know what angel you would need to do now come up out of bed to don't know can't say but it in my jaw is but you can't see a bruise but it's like right in there it's really tender like I just I just a bed posts I know nope I have no idea how the I got the bruise maybe I don't know maybe I tried to grab for the night stand or something after I hit my jaw but I still can't I bruise pretty easily on the inside of my arm there whom I can I can give myself a bruised by just pinching it all on the inside of my arm so so yeah Canadian now the chat room is suggesting that it might be time to get rid of that cursed doll in yeah the chair at the foot of your bed I forgot knew was there yeah I had it's just the weirdest sensation though I think bill I think you need you know those those home security cameras slow yeah I think you need one in your room and then you need to review the footage if it happens one more time you know do it now also because it's already happened a couple times in for five years you know that's not really that's more than I do with but are you sure but I think so so I put it in but it is a very odd sensation to realize that you're kind of in the air I don't mean you're I'm not really like levitating up and but the but somehow you're you're fleeing I'm fleeing myself out of bed and I don't I don't recall having a dream more anything but serious question you're not taking like the aid of you know calling no not really not that I'll tell you about not not really means yes but I don't want to talk about it no I take I take an antihistamine that can make you sleeps soundly you know it's like a Benadryl **** but it's not Benadryl but it's kind of like that but yeah I don't I just don't know now here's a texter quit covering for your wife built you know that you can talk to a hi I was suspicious at first but someone else's suggesting there could be alien only in visitors to its see the doll or the aliens each each the it is like levitating though it it makes you think that your your somehow floating for a second and then which I swear I did when I was a kid I used to I remember one time having a really bad fever I was very ill and walking down the hall of my house and I couldn't couldn't keep my feet on the ground I kept they kept like you this is Tom you figure you know I think they've given a lot the average age of years usually usually it's under extreme stress when the mutant capabilities I had a family so I don't know I don't think this is sleeping is an extreme stroke might be for him it is very stressful very I I wake up sweating I like I've been working all day it's just terrible I don't get anything out of it except Braff's moons all kinds of theories going on here demonic possession hello Sir surely this is happened other people not the open the only one who goes flying through the air and get and how I smacked my draw on the night that's one to it when you see it when you have a bruise on your arm in your jaw I'm just true it's almost like you for one yourself at the night here's another of their stuff on the nightstand and it didn't didn't knock any of it all here's another theory the Clintons appliance hello yeah Obama Soros these people hate America right when I said to my wife for the first time I said to my gonna need stitches and she said no blood doesn't run up hill bill so little little Vince foster little joke let's see yeah all kinds of theories going on I think it's we just need to star strapping it down no I want a camera is that we want to security well you may want to camera but I'm not gonna do it I don't I don't trust you with the footage that operates motion Yasser a motion sensor camera yeah I know that's all the only way to get to the bottom of it probably could be if it happens one more time I don't I will you get a camera okay okay red X..
