"So I made one speech terrified and that was it. And then when I got to American Airlines I had to do a lot of it. And I was terrified and I asked my boss was really the speaker I said, how'd you? How'd you get good? To it a lot. Go Do Women's clubs the Flower Center Rotor you name it go out do it until they get good. So I did. and. Then American, I was speaking the thousands of people. And, I had to I had to get get good at it. So you know it's about getting out and doing it and that's what network is bad is Is Doing. At getting in those. Reps. Yeah and I think he. Even. Even. Coming to your zoom event. This is really interesting during the pandemic and you throw us in the river of other people. In the zoom rooms and it's awesome and some interesting contacts. That I wouldn't have met before, and in fact, in talking to more and more people about virtual meetings that is really powerful. INCORPORATIONS 'cause you're throwing together marketing and sales and manufacturing people don't normally wouldn't hang together and just force them to be together. In it's easy and cheap to do and preuss interesting results. So that's sort of the new networking. It does it does. It's true what you're saying that these these times to sort of forced us to find ways to do this all online. But even when we go back to being able to be in offices again and being able to go to conferences again I think we've now all adopted some level of interest in. Oh, there's a way to now do this virtually and you know. Regional meetings happen because you want people to connect. Why do you have to wait for them to happen? You could be doing anyway like. You know. Regional Yeah two things that are going to happen the meeting business and I've been doing a lot of interviews about this stuff. There won't be a meeting of the future that isn't hybrid a any size, the lobby hybrid, and two. What's fascinating is you read about some of these big tech conferences they're having. Twice as many people sign up a show up, but twice as many people show up as they ever had before. And way more murder national because they don't have to fly there and they can afford it. So trade shows are getting more traffic. Than they got before and dealer shows in trade associations are are able to disseminate. New Ways. So I think it's very powerful. A lot of is garbage and not done well, and that's why you know I. Think I'm doing well virtual speakers I worked very hard at you're doing well, 'cause you teach people how to do it in in your pro so as as the cream comes to the top. People will learn how to do it better. And then I think it will just be embedded as part of what we do in meeting going forward. I know you don't know where you.

"And so that the lines don't show because you know, wrinkles, air considered, like very unflattering and people want to get rid of them. Seeing you. I suspect you have not had Cosmetic surgery. And if that's true, I want to say thank you, and it's not because I disapprove of cosmetic surgery. I just don't think it should be required.

"Guess what ninety eight percent of the people graduate almost all making over sixty thousand dollars so it allows people who don't have a lot of money to get education quickly. Then they cut the class to one year and they ended that because so many people being hired after one year and then they made it online so they moved from Indianapolis to nationwide the moving around the world with this program. It is a little different. It's a flipped classroom which I'm sure you know where it's not about. Lectures the professor is right there with you all the time. You're actually doing real product creation. So it's real time. Everybody gets the help they need. You're not just sitting there being lectured to and it turns out. It's way more successful in many other boot camps and this new business model that's bolted to it allows people who don't have the money to go through education and by the way we get them all part time jobs while they're in school so they're all doing things like customer support at home and other jobs they can do because of course they have to eat and pay the rent while they're going to school. That's amazing what is this company called. It's called Kinsey K. I N. Z. E. Kinsey Academy based in Indianapolis started by Greg Guy Chuck. I met him in spoke there and got to know the people and now joined the board because I really believe in it. I mean. Obviously that model doesn't have to work just for becoming an engineer. It could be any kind of class. But they're focused on the demand particularly here in the United States and I'm sure around the world. We have the same thing. These engineers aren't going to Google and apple and facebook. They're going to traditional companies. Who are trying to disrupt themselves in desperately need engineers to become a new smart company. They're able to get great jobs because there simply aren't enough engineer. Sin There aren't going to be enough a lot of other people yes. Ai is going to disrupt some jobs. But as we all know it's going to create many others data scientists yesterday the number one growing job in the world. We don't have enough of them so we could get back to some of the changes you have to make in your own company. One of them. I call don't play pinball you and I are old enough to play pinball machines and they're still around some places a use that and you saw the video in my speech a picture of a ball going through a pinball machine. 'cause that's the Whitney big companies make decisions they bounce off these little rubber bumpers and you have a new idea out there in. It says will. We can't write the code for that and marketing says we could ever market that if you get through them then. Sales says they can't sell it in customer service. Says they can't support it any get through those traps. Then they bring out the big guns with his little flippers at the bottom of a pinball machine and those are finance and legal department to kill everything right. And that's what happens in a big company in a startup. It's just you know a guy and a girl underdog and they say yes so one of the big changes that companies have to make is to build a culture where everyone says yes that their job is to say yes to something new. It's very easy to say. No because you can say no and then go back to work. Leave the meeting. No that was a bad idea. Shut it down but you'll never change. It's hard to say yes. It's risky to say yes but everybody in a company has to say yes and get behind the new idea and get it over the finish line for you actually to transform in disrupt yourself. I loved that went in a company. That's larger than one hundred people. How do we stop sort of greasing the wheel? So it's easier for people say yes. It really has to come from the top. It is about leadership because I believe the best ideas and company come from the bottom from the people on the front line. The salespeople customer service people the manufacturer people they know what's going on. I was out at an airplane manufacturing plant. They made small single engine planes and I saw all these can look like emails stuck on various workstations and I went to read them. They were actually emails from customers. Some of them saying this is the best airplane seat I've ever sat in. It's amazing well that's GonNa make somebody feel good at the other. One said the door on this plane is terrible. It's always windy and noisy. Well that kind of information flowing back and forth to the line person is terrific but if management doesn't support it it will never happen. So here's the most important thing goes back to risk. The leader of the company has to stand up and say. Hey we're trying this new idea. Bob's running it and by the way it was a smashing success. And you know Bob gets a big round of applause and then this is another Laura. Did this it failed. And we're getting Laura another chance because we kill projects. Not People wasn't about her. It was just an idea that fail. Look I'm just finishing biography of Thomas. Edison it's unbelievable. How many thinks he tried that fail before he invented the LIGHTBULB and improve the record player and basically built the movie industry in so many other things but he tried thousands of things that fail? But you have to celebrate failure along with success and when you do that and when people see that there's really no risk and the boss is okay if the idea fails we're going to try again then you'll get people standing up and saying. Hey I want to try this. The ideas will flow to you from the bottom of the organization but normally they're interrupted by a thing. I call the Bozon wear. That's not the ozone layer. This is the impenetrable air of That stops good ideas for moving upward. It's not their fault. It's that they're not rewarded to take risk so unless you start that top down. I you can't get the bottom of later in the bottom up is where the best ideas come from travelocity. We started in one thousand nine hundred ninety six paging people in their flights relate and yes we re paging because no one had cell phones. Pagers nobody'd ever done that. It was amazingly successful. Then idea came from a customer service agent. She said I'm tired of answering the phone. Can we pay these people? But we hadn't had a culture where those ideas could flow. It never would've happened. I love that I love that. Gosh okay like I'm feeling so on fire right now. There are so many things I want to like. Think about a rethink or disrupt. I actually can't wait to get to my morning scrum right now. So thank you personally. This is a huge dose of motivation. And what about this conversation is that anytime likeness and so easy to focus on the negative right but what I'm finding? Is that actually being at home? Being this peaceful environment with my children is actually allowing my mind to expand in different ways. It's not do but it's giving me more time to reflect. I think I'm still getting stuff done. But as I'm reflecting and thinking so many ideas are emerging and I bet many people listening DYSFUNC- casts who might be stuck at home as a noticing the same phenomenon. I think that's right. I mean it is the perfect time to do this in it hopefully disruption off can give you a framework for that you think about things in a company like marathons sprints well in little company is all a sprint but in a big company. You've got to run the marathon. I've gotTA support my staff. I've got to get the earnings done. I've got to produce the product but at the same time you have to have sprints you have to have these little experiments that are going on all the time and that's hard to do and sometimes it takes different people to do marathon since sprint said travelocity. I brought a bunch of mainframe programmers over to program for the web because they knew travel and it turns out. They didn't like it. And we were changing on a dime. We were cancelling projects. We're very customer responsive. They WANNA go back. To writing big plotting mainframe one year things so we sent them back because at the time travelocity was all sprint but in big companies. You do both so people kind of self select to that. There's some people who like the start up changing failing trying again environment and there's some people like to come in and work on the line and do the same thing every day and that's perfect you need both. But if you're just running marathons guess what you're GonNa get outsprinted by somebody at the end who's GonNa come and eat your business if you think about monsters. Godzilla didn't kill Qinghong right. It wasn't another giant guy. It a bunch of little tiny planes who killed King Kong. Those are the startups. Those are the guys who were biting at your heels. Were all playing whack. A mole twenty four hours a day again startups. But they're also the place you can get the best ideas. I was with Chairman of American Express two years ago. He came out there twice a year just to do what they call. A Silicon Valley petting zoo. We saw lots and lots of startups and he said. American Express was founded. It was an express. Company was shipping freight on Railroads said. Now we're a financial powerhouse. I couldn't be next but we're not going to be a financial powerhouse where to change and I have to find that idea out here so as you suggest this is a great time to look at those technologies look at those business models and say wow one of these really could catch fire in my industry if I will take the impediments in my company out of the way that keep me from changing so many powerful ideas over here and that was a key message how can I take the impediments out of my company that keep me from changing now. What would be a message for you? People here who may not own the company but actually worked for the company. You can be innovative no matter what you do with the Department is. Hopefully you can suggest new ideas. I was one hundred year. Old Company. Asked me to speak invasion. Is that well? They're hundred years old. They gotta know somethings but actually their business model changed much and before the speech. I met someone at the reception and she said well. I've done something innovative in my department. I said what's that she said. I unlocked are adobe forms. So that as people apply for insurance they can type right into the computer and they don't have to print it out and write it by hand and send it into us where we can't read it now. I didn't want to tell her that the. Us Internal Revenue Service had done ten years earlier so it wasn't exactly cutting edge but it was cutting edge to them in. It's certainly was cutting edge to her. It was wonderful that she took it on herself in did that and was applauded for so in some companies. You can grasp the nettle and do those kinds of things and work within your team to be more innovative than the rest of the company and so companies. It's harder you've gotta find ways sometimes to get around the Naysayer and that's not always easy because there are a lot of people who will say well. It'd be play devil's advocate for just a moment here with any new idea the pinball machine but if you keep moving and keep thinking of new things many times you can be heard and look at your own department and say how could we change. What could we do with new technology or a new business model? Just a new.

"Serving in a variety of management positions of was at American Airlines that he led the team to stop trump law city in each changed the travel industry now that industries in industry going through some massive disruption right now because of the situation at hand but that is not the topic of this podcast. Rather what we're going to talk about. Is Terrace work? As innovator as thinker as thought leader helping people around the world think about how to disrupt their own companies so that they can rise into the next evolution off their business so tell us the author of a book. I'm halfway through the book right now and it's a beautiful stunning book. Just kinda groups you it's called disruption off at technological disruption coming for your company and what to do about it by Terry Jones founder of travelocity founding chairman of Kaya Dot Com. Go check out the book title Resonates With You. It's disruption off you can google it simply put in disruption often. You'll find it but here's why this topic is so interesting today during this time when so many businesses are being disrupted by corona virus. What if we can use the fact that we are? Kinda like under house arrest to use this time to actually think about. What are we going to shift in our lives and shipped in our business when we come out of the situation and when we come out of this situation as everyone is putting the pieces back together again. What if we can put the legal expect together in such a way that we're not just doing regular business? But we are leveraging changes in the world new technologies new business models to we build ourselves better than before so. I know you're going to enjoy this conversation. Let's welcome onto the mind body. Podcast Kerry Jones Terry. How are you today very well? Thanks for having me Terry. I was really impressed by your talk. The one that need to live in Panama City. Sean excited to have you as a guest but first let me ask you how you doing today with everything that's happening. Well I'm doing very well. I'm lucky I way up in the mountains in Nevada at a ski resort so we have lots of snow. And we're on lockdown as well. My wife says advance lime disease. So that'd be very careful with her so we're just staying home in having time to write and read and think about disruption among other things because certainly we're in the middle of that falsely really starting to hear about your wife and the situation you're in but it is nice that you are in the ski resort. That's a pretty comfortable place to be locked. Hold up in yeah. It's very nice. Unfortunately we had tons of snow in the resorts all closed. But it makes it easy to go outside. Be Alone and walk the dog in. It's unusual for me because I like you. I travel so much but it's great to have the time and and I have the time to read. I think I think that's what's interesting about what you said at the beginning. You know if you think about businesses today across the world. They're closed and they're losing money and they're going to be very worried about restarting the business. But I think it is a time when you can look out at all. The new technologies and new business models that are available to you now many being used by startups and it's an established business. Say Hey it's time for me to think about those. And how could I apply them in my business in a way that I can accelerate my growth out of this great disruption right right? You know what I love Terry is for you to give us a pathway to think about that as a business owner myself I can tell you I do. Have that sense of worry. We don't know when this is going to end but I wanNA use this time and I know many business owners who are listening to this. WanNa use this time to really reflect. Think and ask ourselves. How can we become better than before? And I love to give us a glimpse of how you think about it because you invented entire industries. I mean the whole thing with travelocity. Is that from what I understand? You help create the online travel industry where people could go and book their own flights. That was a massive destruction to the entire industry and had gathered American Airlines the edge that made it become one of the dominant allies in the world. It did and we hope that it would be big. We didn't know that it would be as big as it was in fact no one believed us when we took the company public. I kinda played to empty rooms. It was the beginning of the Internet age and everybody thought unlike shopping would be bigger and all kinds of other technologies would be bigger than actually traveled turned out to be but believe it or not travel is the largest part of Internet commerce. It's larger than the next three categories. Combine that evolved taking risk. In the way my book is written I talk about many many new technologies and many new business models in order to open. Everyone's mind what's coming but the end of the book is really about. What can I do about it thinking about all these technologies and all these new business models? Why haven't I already done this? So that's when we talk about what to do and I guess on say the number one thing in business today that I see particularly established business is businesses. Stop taking risk. Every business was formed by a risk taker as corporations get larger and they keep focused on quarterly earnings risk stop. Every startup is a risk in seventy five percent of them fail but in corporations. It's very hard to have any kind of failure. And that's the biggest change I think businesses have to make is to say. I am going to experiment with these new technologies. I am going to experiment with new business models. There are many other things that talk about that businesses can do but I think the number one thing is to say I'm going to build a culture where experimentation is welcomed failure is understood doesn't have to be a big failure and that people feel safe and comfortable to try and take a risk and once you do that then somebody could say hey. Let's Adopt Three D. Printing. Let's use robotics and you try to. Maybe it doesn't work. That's okay try something else. Because the only way the world moves forward is through experimentation mostly failure and then suddenly a great success which is what happened with travelocity. Now what does that mean for the world today? The so many emerging new technologies coming into place the world is changing it such a rapid pace and I know the innovators in Silicon Valley and other hot spots around the world accrue aiding these tools with the potential to disrupt the way. We live our lives from augmented reality to artificial intelligence as a business owner. What a things that we have to keep in mind. And how can we better take advantage? These emerging opportunities again. I think it is sitting down and hopefully looking through a list of technologies. And they're in my book but they're also online of what is happening in our people are doing them in industries maybe totally different than yours. Which will spark than I did is say I could do that. I could do that because so many times. You hear about people who look at a start up in their industry and say how do they do that? I couldn't do that except of course you can do that. Because you have things that startups would kill for. You HAVE THE FACTORY. You have the supply chain. You have the brand. You have the sales force. You have capital startups. Have none of that. Would they have is technology. Encourage right so if you look at it and say take an industry that's been turned on its head by Three D. printing ninety percent of hearing aids in the world or now three D. printed. The happened in less than four years. Who would've thought that right? But the companies. That didn't make the jump are here anymore. Because they didn't really see the value except the customer did because guess what those hearing aids are customized to you or think about the fact that. Ge just got the first jet engine part approved to be Three D. PRINTED. And now they've got a part that's cheaper lighter stronger faster to make. And what about the thirty? Different subcontractors made that before the people shipped it the boat the truck the customs broker. All those people are needed. There disrupted by simply one three D. Printer. So wouldn't it be better for you if you're a manufacturer to say hey? I'm GonNa Work With these airframe manufacturers and put a three D. Printing facility right next door. I'm the one who prince. How can I adopted and change my business before somebody else comes in cuts my feet off? You know you just said something. That just made me go. Why didn't I think of that? You're right so many people who have established business right now Afraid of the startup. That's going to disrupt them a remember. The story you told when I last saw you speak about that. Short I service for the apple and how they got interrupted by Uber and I wanted to tell that story because well firstly. It's a fascinating story but there's also a good warning in there for all of us were working for a business running a business but you just made me realize that yes. We are in such a better position than startups. Because we know the industry we have the clients. We have a little bit of capital and we could disrupt ourselves so alice that story. I'd start by saying something I say. Lot that innovation disruption are just two sides of the same coin you only call it a disruption when you don't do it if you do it it's an innovation right. The point is grab it and do it and the story goes like this. I was writing to the airport with a limo service that I used many times. It takes about two hours to get to the airport and the owner of the company said would I review is website. You knew my background and I thought well usually a charge people a lot of money for that but you know he's a small business. I could help them looked at his website and it was pretty. But you couldn't book and there was no pricing and I said why can I book and he said well. I want people to call me and I said Well Ed is the twenty th century. No one does that. You know what would travel to be like if you had to call or call to get a price niece Arale. That's just the way I do it. You know I've always done it that way and I said look when you do this. 'cause I think you're GONNA get flattened by UBER why. He opened a second website. College San Clemente Online Limo. Use the same cars in the same driver as except with that website. Let people Price and let them book and give your drivers some technology like smartphone. So they know what's going on more cost you more than buying a new limo. He said well you know. I only know that seems pretty hard for me. I said howling and he said fifty five. I said you know. I don't think you're GONNA make it to retirement. You're not going to be sixty five and still own this company. If you don't change well. The rest of our ride was in silence. And unfortunately about six months ago I got an email that is company had gone bust. He had the opportunity to change to innovate except he let himself be disrupted in for him. It was simple. He could use a bunch of standard tools and things were around and leverage his brand. His drivers is cars to continue his business but he couldn't change and he was afraid of taking that risk and I think it's a good allegory for so many businesses that sometimes it's.

James just a lot of my sense of humor a lot of the way that I view the world sometimes times is through a lens of comedy And I will I will say monty. Python is the reason for that and I was introduced Monty Python. I found when I was really young. And so it's shaped a lot of the way that I what I think is funny of my sense of humor and that kind of thing and so it's it affected me and thank you Corey for texting me that morning because I had I had no idea texted me now. So Corey's your owner on update not was essentially. Yes I was GONNA say so it was like so. Tom Is to dragon ball. As Joshua's to money sure makes sense has has yeah I can see that that formed you So bringing it back. Are you unless you have. Now I am. I'm done bringing it back. This isn't like super breaking news but this was news that I think is really important and really cool Technically Win for last week's episode. I'm bringing up now so CW All the superhero shows. That our show ran by Greg Berlanti and his wonderful brilliant mine of honing in on the TV Formula on how to correct one character to spot if another character and now there's like eight shows that he's now show running for Warner brothers and the exclusive deal that he got to stay with the Warner Brothers. There's and continue show running shows DC's crisis on infinite. Earths Came to a conclusion With the flash episode. Not with with that only but there was inclusion on flash so where he travels through the speed force and ended up in a lab within the force and met as Rem Miller's the flash from the DC extended universes film so from the Justice League ambassador man so it was I think a very very very cool moments in TV history I the. CW people who've been wanting green Arrow to join the Justice League and the live action films but to see that the film's now have made mention into the TV shows. Now are coalescing together. Where a lot of people were thinking as mill is done as Miller? It has to do the next Harry Potter series films and Conflict is going to happen where he's like now part of two major temples of Warner Brothers That's all falsehoods. Those are like all rest assured. Like as AS Roma's GonNa stay as the flash matter all the shakeups and stuff like that happening up top and it's a really. I think really cool moment. That grant gust in as well as Miller got. It's a share screens screen. Time in the cool thing about his at no one onset new. The only people that knew were the director and a Griffin And everyone's like how this was like the best kept secret of like all like Hollywood Other school the Cedar Social Media Blowing. Yeah it was a lot of people like when Ezra Miller was announced as as as the flash a lot of the CW flash audience kind of were upset because they had found that they liked grant Guston so much and you know the Pew who are washing the CW shows are like through and through. Better fans of DC than I am because even I fell off a bit and these are people who do the you know. Boring episodes through the bad episodes of the bad seasons the bad character turns. They're still watching it. And they still love these characters like with such such passion. And Ezra Miller Ezra Miller is like Yo. I'm so excited with the flash. I can't wait to meet grant like we live in a multi verse baby like what's going to happen someday. And he was play since we're dealing with the flash last year and so he's like Ezra it's been such like the biggest advocates of of trying to Meld the two universes together and so with that it like to me and my cynical minds like well. This is the only thing we're GONNA get. That was the one fan service we got but if highest demand we've seen far less happened especially dealing with the CW shows like supernatural was cancelled for a moment. It was gone and fan uproar nine seasons later. All right we Oh that's not that's not a CW thing that's right. It wasn't a serious. CW is the one. That's like. Calm over here Stephen GonNa Mel was the one it's like. Hey bring back hell bring back Constantine and Alchemy on any episode you want. Yeah and that's the thing I love about. CW is that like those actors offers are so in tuned with their audience and their fans at the like. Oh you want that. We're going to bring it in because that's making seven style. That's the success of supernatural the success of supernatural national the CW shows is that the listen to their fans so like is so clearly that anything is on the table. Yeah and so like I really just kind of enjoy. I think that was such a good head for the fans moment. Yeah so Now my news is very quick yes there's been a lot of talk about the ob one series There was some rumors that you an exit. There's been some rumors that it's been canceled. It's been delayed but my boy you and showed up today. He showed up and he came out and he said No everything's fine. The shoot just got pushed a little bit. But we're still on track for the same released Dayton. I'm still in this we're still doing in. Ob One is still come in. Deborah Charles still helmet at all so put those worries to rest especially for myself. I've been worried for like the last week about it because my heart can't take it. Well I ah the grandson eighteen. You have to take like if there's any like cold feet coming from you know. This is like of this. Obi Wan show as for sure. You're not going to be Deborah Chow. And for you know like I think these are the people who are like leading the front and like Gregor is like and that's a cool thing again about these characters about at these actors and fictional characters like they wanna play the characters more than we even probably WanNa see them right and so like to fathom that idea. It's like I'm willing to dedicate years of my life to this character And they already have. And so like we talking about talking verison rumors that basically Lucas was upset. Lucas Arts was upset with the Direction action they were taking the character but turns out. None of. That's true to to to what we know. Apparently none of that's true. Everything's still a greenland radio. I mean we we all. I don't know if you guys remember like when one before one woman came out like a disgruntled employee was like wonder woman. It's going to be shed in there. Oh she's like rumors can happen. That's what it called rumors that there's a little bit of truth to this like even I think even admitted that or I think it was even it was like we're working on the script a little more but we have time. It's not going to change the schedule. The one thing we like if we start hearing Oh obe- once series has reduced off. The script must be a disaster. Relax this is like a normal thing in the there working on this. I'm excited because sought falling for the clicks. You soon as excited to play. Obi Wan as Corey is for him to play it. He's more excited than we are to watch it. Yeah a hundred percent off. Aw there working on the script. I'm happy that they were like. Hey there's an opportunity here we have the time to address it now. Let's do it. Hey guys aren't going to connect to the theology so anyway netease no last segment last segment of the Neuron. Update is when we answer questions from the audience. Like you and you.

"terry jones" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"Which was that wonderful as it was one of the things that you seem to think that it it lost from the film was the kind of darkness and grotesquery? Which of course? Isn't you know it's pretty hard to put grotesque career on the Broadway stage. Tell me a little bit about how this Middle Ages setting for holy grail in this kind of dark doc. Death filled world was conducive for making jokes. Well original Script for Eddie grow Half it was set in the Middle Ages and the modern day so bagging backwards and forwards. But it just happened that I was sort of Working become choice choice of at the time and I was pretty keenum steady in the Middle Ages and so To my surprise everybody agreed to go along with that So you know I you know Eddie. Setting is going to be There's GonNa be conducive to making jokes. Just In the grazing is trying to create unreal environment the U. N.. Do City things in both holy grail. In life of Brian are very much period pieces and very much come from these kind of a big important cultural myths like really capital letter M. Central Myths to Western culture. Why choose those is to like really huge topics? First time out for a for a feature film from a series they had been a series of sketches. That were you know maybe like about class but yeah well. I think it's the same isn't really it's easier to do something within the context That looks serious. People will know about ready Gives you sort of the COP. Blondes to do A playoff against world that everybody recognizes so. I think it's the same. Nothing really is doing silly things with men in both hats massages You just create a well. The people recognizing recognizing except it'll be a real world Or real world and then you can do anything I think that's what we were doing. And I think you need a case as we particularly Parodying the The styles of you know like we don't even parenting Australian legends. I think we're actually taking the Australian legends in. How do you go And actually enjoying doing city things within the terms of reference that's one of those legends and we should sort of slightly different from actually making fun all those kinds of films. You listen to the sound of young America. Jesse Thorn. America's radio sweetheart. We'd heart my guest on the program is His Terry Jones so you you were. Actually you. Were actually writing your first book. which is chaucer's chaucer's night at the same time that you were making holy grail or at least preparing to make holy grail? What was it? What was it about that Middle Ages world that got you excited excited to do to do comedy in that world? Well I'm originally was The the boring bits of chaucer got me interested I Because right such funny stuff in some places would have these very boring. Dull pieces which is what we were being told he did so? I was trying to explain these thirty lines about the night in the product. The details I'm trying workout. What he was actually talking about and and all to try and find out what he was talking about? I had to stop reading about the time and trying to find out more to my i. I've found myself getting dragged into sort of late fourteenth century military history which is no off. I mean I thought I would be interested but then you know you find that it's It's it's history. It's like you see the same people going on. The context is different the calls but the same people taking Seizing power holding onto power and using the same techniques People using today. And that's really the way how I made me become more political. Do you think do you think that this any of your any of your comedy was was political They really know it was kind of it. Kind of always chide away from Politics and it's mon kind of about you know so the people in you know human foibles. I think we if it's if it's satirical in any way satirical and they all sense of being sort of satire on mankind on any individuals nowadays party politics I think maybe because you're maybe because is your British and maybe because you ran on. PBS maybe because of a glancing references to literature and Philosophy Monty Python. The the United States has a reputation as being very intellectual humor. which I don't know personally i? I don't know if I've ever really bought into that. But how do you feel about that about having having reputation a blind waiver putting up really because we don't because it mentions kick he got somebody like that but basically the jokes really pretty stupid and It's pretty silly stuff. But again it's using intellectual furniture just like using the Australian in legends or many hats. You you take something looks very straight and then it's easier to do silly things within within that context And we never thought about well. People Never Never had hoped. HOMOPHOBES OIL VINNIE Descartes Picot. So we just assumed that everybody would know about what we're talking about it. And if they didn't well too bad after having had you know the popularity clarity of python stay at a relatively continuous level for the last thirty years. Or so maybe even growing do you get a feeling for for what kind of what kind of people I really appreciate the the humor that you know. I mean I didn't know really tool. I mean we. He said he found that. We appeal to men in this country. Appeal to men than to to women and So we never really got group is doing the told disappointment. Yes I know. rather young spas expanding Wasn't Muslim I taste adult But it's a I didn't know it is but I mean the one thing well it was always the first reactions. We really got When when the shows I went out on BBC about four weeks we we just seem to be doing the show in limbo nobody? We have an audience in the studio but the power from that we weren't getting any reactions at Tacoma. Don't we didn't know whether people would like you to what. And then we started getting lessons in from the From from kids at school and things like that. And it's still kids. Start with I fans of the show was the show running at the time. it was About generally about half nine ten o'clock downbeat Let's see one actually. Everybody everything's with BBC too. But I think it was. Maybe half ten on BBC One and it usually. I've seen the fighting I think can can we do another five minutes or so said okay. I'm going here. I'm saw involved in news. We'll be w we just got the we just putting new noises under the fell when it circuiting very exciting is official. Different is really interesting. It's funny to think of the idea of adding adding in sound elements as being exciting We had these characters schools. That dog soldiers sort of the film was designed by Allen Lee who It was the first time he'd never sold about doing films. Actually book illustrator who I knew and I certainly will be ideal to sort of do the design very the Viking and of course he's he went on from that do Lord of the Rings Over three episodes. I mean he so he's like now kind of top film designed But he designed these These molly's head gift. He should these shoes long skeleton uh-huh heads for these dog soldiers on this boat and they never really looked happy findings. So what we've been doing. We've been putting growls on them and now they suddenly ugly look frightening that really all scabby one of the things that you've done a lot in the thirty years or so since python or Twenty Years Twenty five years in the last python film is children's entertainment. A lot of people I think. Get into children's entertainment when they have kids of their own. Was that the case for you. I thought he writing books for kids when my daughter was five and I feel great. I can read Harry tails now. The brothers Grimm for and I started reading. I think it was snow. White's actually and And you get the end of the story in the original version which I I was reading the wicked stepmothers punished by being made to put on red hot slippers dons until she falls down dead. This little does go go to sleep thing so badly. talked a lady to death I mean this sort of stuff so I I the next day so the set out and started writing Fairy Tales Then but I in my son alive then I have to. I had like something very very viking. So He's Kinda Kinda Nice but it's the book of like the bill and in fact I notice I hadn't realized I forgot the films. You dedicated to him and here. He is like sixteen years as we get his child's have uh-huh you've you've worked in this kind of fairy tale and fantasy world a lot since in the past twenty years or so. I mean you mentioned your Book Fairy Tales which actually I have to say. I'm twenty four and my my mom used to read me from that book when I was when I I was you know. How old is that? Your mom read from that book. Five four or five I was born. The book came out. But you've you've worked very extensively in that field and I mean I think to a certain extent everything that's connected with. The with. The myths of the Middle Ages is deeply connected to the world of fantasy. What do you think is is appealing for you about about that about that world fantasy? I don't why it is just what that's how I am I I I've always enjoyed the world. Absolutely fantastic. Will one remove from reality. Maybe it was growing up in the forties in because I was born in nineteen forty two to my childhood. It's been in the forties in England when it was pretty rough you know there was nothing much in the shops and we were suffering from the aftereffects of the second one will and It was pretty all Steve and Maybe maybe that was in. Maybe it was. He escaped into the World Group. The bath and We'll live animals and imagine wells than to live in the real world and Certainly I've always thought always been my. I found it easier it to understand and imagine he will than to understand the real one of the credits on your on your resume that as I was reading about you this past week I didn't know is that you wrote the screenplay for the film labyrinth which was a Jim Henson Film. Jim Henson Children's fantasy film from the from from the mid nineteen eighty s How did you how did you get involved in that project very old? Actually I was actually thinking about doing the Vikings at the time and I suddenly the Jim Henson would be the person so get involved doing the at the moment So I got his number and I phoned up his. The secretary is assisted Jill and she said well fine he was trying to get hold of you. 'cause he's got this thing labyrinth that he he was wondering whether you'd be interested in writing the screenplay for so So instead of getting involved in the Viking I if I go to elaborate did you. What was it like working with him did did you? Did you have a lovely man he's He was He was really really nice. Good man to with and I was working with him and Brian Fraud.
"terry jones" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"Hey Bulls eye listeners. It is Jesse so We got the unfortunate news this week. That Terry Jones passed away Obviously like any other self-respecting respecting comedy nerd. I grew up obsessed with monty python and I also grew up obsessed with a book that Terry Jones route called fairy tales which is beautiful beautiful and still in print And so for that reason when I had the opportunity to interview Jerry Jones I was genuinely Kinley. Terrified like I when people ask me sometimes. If I'm if I'm nervous about doing interviews I say no and I just generally true like secondly I haven't had the time I'd like to prepare or something like that. I generally feel fine about my interviews. You know people are people and so forth but I vividly remember being in my apartment. In koreatown where from from which I recorded this interview and looking at my finger as I was dialing the phone and realizing that it was actually literally shaking anyway This conversation was one of the things that convinced me that I needn't hidden be nervous about interviews because Terry Jones was such a brilliant and hilarious but ultimately loosely. and kind man as well. It was so nice of him to do this interview on on my show when very few people. Listen to my show and It is one of the greatest highlights of my career so in In memory of a great artist and in a kind man my conversation sation from almost fourteen years ago. Two thousand six. You're listening to the sound of young America. I'm Jesse Thorn America's radio sweetheart my guest on the program Terry Jerry. Jones is a founding member of MONTY. Python's flying circus as well as an author of film writer Director. And Right. Now you're actually working on re reediting the soundtrack for Eric the Viking which was against the film I made in years ago. Well the the Viking And and I've never really quite pleased with it With the edit the way well Not only with films I and all the movies. I've always edited hands on myself. Open some reason this one. I just I just let me get on with my step back and we'll see me going pretty well. There's only about Ten days a week week two weeks before we were due opened in London but actually sat down with it. I suddenly realized there's an awful I could take out So we managed managed by ten minutes out of it but But that time in America they already printed under fifty copies of the long version. That's over there and then just for Christmas Sony said they were going to be released on. DVD and they were going to call it. The director's cut he had a minute director's cut 'cause cutler even though shows version it's A. It's still a lot more to it so I've had a great thrill of Reality Ah we're not just doing the sound Being triple thrilled that I've been meaning to sixteen years. It'd be working with the best ever. Were with my son that what we do what we call me with. We're not going to call it the cotton. We've got to go to psalms cut. Because really he sort of he's he's he's changed the seat order and shop it up now and it's good for a lot of people I know I worked with my father for a little while and it was a total disaster. I have to say I get on very well so until right. It seems like it's the it's the rather rare director's cut that might be shorter than the original Yeah it's quite a bit short that I mean my original. I mean my gut was ten minutes shorter than the than my editors cut And this is now another like twenty five minutes shorter leverage film Monty. Python's flying circus is coming back to television or at least to non-cable to broadcast television here in the United States. And it's going to be distributed in April by PBS for the first time although it was when it originally ran on US television it was run on primarily on PBS stations. This is like thirty years later now and does it ever feel totally normal that this that this creation that you participated in thirty years ago has this amazing. Staying Power Mate live seem very. He's short but it's it's it's surprising I mean I'm I think we thought we were making the founded the TV shows we also. Well we do the funniest thing but we didn't expect people to be still looking at that. He has time having in fact we didn't think he'd be technically possible because when we actually started in sixty nine shows You really couldn't There was never home via machines so you you know we didn't expect to the people will be able to watch will and we were very lucky not to actually Get it because they nearly the BBC nearly white the programs in fact if it were if it hadn't been I mean what happened was in those days. They after a couple of years they would automatically white comedy programs. That means you know. Raise them And the editor in the BBC's phoned me up and said hey they're going to they're going to raise the price in time. So so we smuggled the tapes out of the BBC and recorded onto the only domestic Video that was just coming onto. The market was Phillips. I think it was very cool to VCR. You couldn't play them now and I thought this was going to be the evidence of these shows maybe city myself but then thanks to you. Shops in the states The he's changed his mind because they started selling shares to America. So we were saved. What did you imagine python having in the you know the comedy firmament when you I when it was first created what was your? What was your goal with it? Then well I think we Ah the go do something finally really. We thought we could do the do the funniest stuff and trying to do something that was different to other gone before four and had a different a different shape and everything I was very concerned to break up the The kind of the foam of television comedy Eh. Those days you know you gotTa have a half hour comedy of situation comedy. She'd have sketches and they'd be so they have beginnings Middles and ends or you'd have creek which should be seconds of the one So we were trying to break that up with that one of the interesting things about the python. Television series was the way that all of the sketches were linked together which which is not typical and television sketch comedy and you mentioned the not having beginnings Middles and ends. I think those those links kind of get you out of the requirement of always having to have beginnings Middles and ends and particularly ends which can be quite difficult and sketch comedy. At the same time I mean it imposes a whole all other imposes a whole other requirement. I know when I interviewed Bob Odenkirk. Who created the sketch comedy series? Mister show and they decided to do that. Very the same thing with links between sketches and. He told me that about halfway through the first season they realize what a horrible mistake that was because they spent about as much time trying to think of links between screens sketches as they did actually writing comedy. Yeah well 'cause we were lucky. I mean the idea of doing having show with the flow like that really came out of the an animation that Terry Gilliam it down for a TV. Show that my pay in every colleague I would doing with Terry Gilliam. You do not just show said he was children's show and Terry them. This is the time this animation is chain of consciousness. And it doesn't really mean just just it's one thing to another and I was thinking when we were trying to think about what shape show would be. I suddenly remembered Terry's elephant cartoons elephants. And I feel so what you could do that throughout the whole show. Of course we would lucky and having Terry to actually do link for us and And we I mean links were it could easily for us. Actually how did you. How did you sell this whole idea? I mean how did you convince convince the powers that be that this. I mean some very odd television show. Let's face it well. I think it'd be very difficult to do that now. I have to say But in those days the BBC was totally different sort of organization and It wasn't interested in. You know how much money could make a big concern. This I owed and size but it trusted It was much more organization. It just It's the producers you know the producers the top dogs they'd been selected they've been trained and the BBC people having the programming trusted. The Jesus and I have to say we wanted to do something with John. CLEESE and John wanted with Mike and me and We went along to Eating over the the program. It's Kinda thing all these guys in suits sitting on the table and they said well you know once the program got to be about. We said well we don't really know and well you're GonNa have music and we and well. They said well who's going to be aiming at and he said well we don't know what's going to be cold and we said well we so they'll look at each other over there will look. We can only thirteen shows. I called you happening nowadays An idea of what the show was above and beyond simply funny evolved during the process of making A. Do you think that it has a certain idea or a certain aesthetic that binds it together aesthetic in in terms of just the sort of the the sum total of six of us at our comic sensibility entity I guess. Suppose that kind of hold it together But I we I mean at the time we were just trying to make every every show totally unpredictable So the fact that you know the word Sony is now into the I think he's in the elk sitting diction he means totally failed we. We tried to supplies everybody. Nobody every week with But we We didn't succeed. You're listening to the sound of young America. Jesse Thorn America's Radio Sweetheart. My guest is Terry Jones an author writer director and founding member of Monty Python. Now Terry you co-directed with Terry Gilliam. The Holy Grail. Thelma L. New directed the To Python films that came after that. Yeah these all these all came out after the initial run of the of the series. What what led you into the film arena and I know now for something completely different which was a kind of an omnibus of sketches film had come amount during the series but wh why why did you go into features? Well that's not gonNA be like television. Wanted to get into film to do the film different was a bit disappointed because it was just a TV sketches and I'm always very keen to fill and After that I think enough something different. Didn't do much business John Wasn't terribly keen. And so I had to be cajoled. The idea of doing the Doing but Very uncomfortable unpleasant dairy but then once we did down eighty nine that was successful And made money then came to be easy to persuade the ability to do life abroad but he was. The film is what I've always I've always wanted to do. was that because of just kind of a general snobbish or was that because there were specific things about film that that you could do or Pacific specific qualities of film that you could utilize that you couldn't do on television. I think a I think basically the big screen I just love the big screen And I've never found a television screen a bit too containing a bit too cramped But also I think there is the fact that you can actually spend more time in the film you know you cannot do things in perfect right things and try and make things work which you don't have time on television? I mean you know the the demands of television such that you're churning out material And although we did take time on the on the pies and shows I mean when we were editing shows. We my in mcnaughton who is the director. uh-huh would He'd sort of think well. We could get away with two two hours of editing and I turned up in the morning we'd spend the entire day as taste of Because we can improve things much actually talking about editing the I mean the even then even spending a whole okay. Anything to show wasn't enough and When we came to do these in a personal best of pies and we've done these? DVD's there's nothing on PBS CBS. which kind of tussle pick and it was a great opportunity to To be the actual TV shows and Things like In in my choice there's one about the The the killer joke. That's a joke. Funny that people die laughing and And so they used the weapon in the war That was nine and a half minutes went out on television I was able to get done to six minutes because you know half minutes without losing a single joke is now much more how I imagine that she when we voted.

"I'm making a chocolate. We're talking this hour with Eric idle. He is one of the founders of Monty python? And he has a new book he calls, it, a sorta biography it's called always look on the bright side of life, and Eric if I may I wanna play a one of the more famous or most famous clips from Monty python's flying circus. This is the the sketch famously known as nudge nudge in which you play a character who sits a little too close to another pub patron that patriots played by Terry Jones and your character fires off a a series of rapid questions. It goes on for a while. But we just wanna play. Here's the beginning. You married? Yes, I'm a bachelor myself. Is you off a guy? I know to me not a main next next known a main of all you'll why does she go? I me does she go. I she sometimes go on bet. She does. Oh, Becky sign them. All sign on outer me, nudge, nudge. The nudge nudge sketch from Monty python's flying circus. How tells about the creation of the sketch? How did it come? Well, it was so low for the long time ago. But the most interesting thing for me is that the biggest fan of that sketch was over his princely, and he would call everybody's squire. Because of that when I find that my life was made because I was a huge over his fan. And I couldn't believe that. He would do that. Squire? No. So. He would also do he lives. Thompson told me this issue. His panel to lady and she said, you'd make Elvis would make us sit up in bed at two in the morning and do want some sketches. And not any. He would do all what we call. Pepe POS the laser machine misuse Entergy. Then. I I just can't really get the visual of that this press issue wider Elvis sitting up in bed with Linda Thompson screaming at each other looking for new brain. I just think that's so wonderful. You can't write that stuff, can you? And if you did people probably thinking, you know. No. I mean, but does it speak. It speaks to the bizarre universality of the pythons comedy, which it doesn't seem to make sense to me because it is so British as well. I mean, how would you describe what the pythons did? Well, I think it's kind of encyclopedic comedy. I mean, it's only appears to be one show. It's got lots of we write differently each of us right differently. And it's will apparently linked together by these little animations of Gilliam said it makes it look like it's about something. But really this many different forms of humor. So while we often find people with enjoy it. We could never find whether they degree about which bit state enjoyed so. And so and so what? Well, I think so I think this nothing re there was some attitude, especially as an attitude, which is to mess around with the show itself and to recognize it's only a show on to play the ordinances expectations. And I think that's what we did with the most fun. We have messing with them. I mean, we we put out of three sided album once which they some people still didn't find the third side for about two months. And then they really nearly fall off the siege. You know, what the hell's this? So we did like to play with them a lot. Well, listen, you've got legions of fans who are flooding our phone lines here.
