"Setup to do that. They can't turn on a dime and all of a sudden. Start putting milk into gallon and half gallon containers. There's a labeling involved there it's a different production line and so those dairy farmers that were selling into that market. They don't have market anymore and so they have to throw out their milk. Same thing that's going on Meat Industry Street if you're farmer and you're growing a pig. Well they want that pig to be two hundred pounds because that's the way that's the way their production line can accommodate that Pagano's various cuts that are certain size now all of a sudden that pig to enter pounds and knows slaughter houses are closed. That pig has nowhere to go. These farmers aren't aren't manufacturers. They don't they don't slaughter these animals they just grow them and they put him on a truck and bring to the slaughterhouse now all of a sudden slaughter houses closed. What did they do with that animal? If they continue to feed it just gets too big especially once it hits two hundred pounds. It starts growing very quickly number two. They're feeding this animal and their feeding this animal and there's nowhere to go. There's a cost that they're incurring. They know they're not gonNA have a market for it so they're killing these animals. Hopefully they're killing is mainly as possible but it's not a simple sort of things. Just change that production on a dime. And so that's the large producers. Let me just interrupt here. I am just finding it very upsetting hearing all of this. Because there's there's people going hungry there's people who don't have food bucase. I don't have any money to buy it because they've lost their income. There's also people who don't have access to food because their supermarket has run out of what they need to to hear this recitation of all of the food that is being you know dumped and all the hogs that are just getting euthanized but not used as the food they were intended for and dying kind of pointless Steph. It all very disturbing leads me to think like surely maybe not with with the hogs surely with like milk. That's in the wrong too. Big of a container. There must be a way of getting that to the people who really need it. Because there's all these food banks now. This is a whole distribution problem now. Here's the big issue. I think government should have had a plan ready to go where the playbook they know what to do. They dusted off during a pandemic and they can figure out a way to move food around. They should have been a way to move food around. The country should a plan for this and see this. Is the problem when you decide that you want to shrink government down to the size it. You could drown in a bathtub and that's the old grover norquist line and so you know all these years. We keep getting spoon fed that big governments bad. We don't want big government. It's too intrusive and it gets in the way of our freedoms but you know we don't want big government. We want smart government smart government that has plans in place when something like this happens. They know what to do. They don't deny it's happening. They don't sit there and pretend that there's GonNa you know somehow just it's going to go away. No you have a plan to act and so this is what we need to do. Now my understanding. There's a couple of bills right now. That are moving through Congress that are getting support on both sides to actually start moving this food and somehow getting to where it needs to go. Because you're right. There's a huge demand. I mean prior to Cova we had about thirty eight million Americans Using snap or food stamps Numbers that I'm hearing out of states like Maryland. They're seeing a seventy one percent increase in applications so if you extrapolate that out throughout the country we're talking about another twenty five million people that will that will need assistance. Plus the amount of people that are going to food banks that are on food stamps or on snap and so we have a major major problem right now. We have enough food in this country. We produce enough food in this country. We need a plan to divert that food to get into where needs but this takes planning this takes an actual understanding of problem and unfortunately right now. I don't think we have kind of smart government that can actually turn on a dime and put this something like this in place at least quickly enough and so so yeah we could. We could do better here but you have to acknowledge the problem. I really think that there could be a government plan to fix the supply chain during the pandemic so that food intended to be delivered in bulk to restaurants and schools and institutions of various sorts could be repackaged way so that I could go to supermarkets and be used consumers who are eating at home instead of in school or in restaurants or wherever but we. We don't have anything like that now but you think there could be a plan like that if government had the will sure somebody asked me? I could have had planned together in ten minutes. So for instance what I would have said is okay restaurant. I'M GONNA give you seventy five percent of your revenue that you did last year. We'll break it down per month and I'm GonNa give you that money and you're going to hire staff back okay and you're gonNA pay your suppliers and you're going to continue to produce food not your menu but produce food because that's whole distribution model now that we can tap into we're going to continue to produce food and you're going to create menus expensive that you can actually turn your restaurants into community feeding centres. You can actually pro because restaurant processed food. So if I get a whole case of chickens in my butchers break them down. We got into portions. We could cook them. We can prepare them. We can get them to the food. Pantries and food distribution we had a distribution setup. No one tapped into it so instead of trying to actually create something new. You just kind of have to go with what you have. What we didn't have was the money flowing through the restaurants that this is a pretty simple solution in at work. Because you don't have to go around. The system creates something new. You work within the system and so could you imagine if every if every restaurant was turned into a community feeding center? We don't you don't have to thousands of meals. Every could two hundred three hundred and that whole ecosystem of the restaurant. The employees the suppliers. All that stays intact that would have been the best way to do and feed a lot of hundred people at the same time. And how would you envision paying for that the government would have to pay for that? They're paying unemployment anyway so the funds is GonNa flow through. There's additional money for food. It's what they do when there's a disaster fema comes in. They find someone who can help feed people. They Pay Them X. Amount of dollars for per meal and they do that now. This much larger scale But you know we're we're we're doing this anyway and then on top of that if someone told me to do that. And they're gonNA put in the rent's GonNa get paid and I'm producing food. My team is working. I could do that for the next year. I also about closing my restaurant either because for the next year I have a mission and as the people who need it. Well Tom Kalicki.

"You'll be able to open your restaurant. We're trying to figure that out in fact having calls with my staff right now. We're trying to figure out the best way to go about it. You know when we opened up. There's going to be reduction in our seating So we're looking at a combination. Probably three things to open up and one would be whatever. Business is available Also to do a combination of Cooked food that will deliver and also a version of a CSI where we can use all of our suppliers to create a boxes that can go out to our customers as well so we can put together. Some of our farmers or fishermen are people are produced chicken force or pork and just create boxes where there'll be some prep on but you'll have to cook at home. I see so you're basically talking about changing the nature of your business absolutely at least for the next year until there's a vaccine we're we're going to have to You know we're looking at a possibility of maybe thirty percent of our original business. So we're we're looking at opening up into a really depressed market and so we have to figure out how to increase our revenue streams as much as possible. You seemed kind of down on the idea a little earlier. In the epidemic of restaurants doing delivery and takeout. I think you said it was putting employees at risk without really raising enough money to be that helpful for the restaurants who were doing it. Have you changed your mind about that or you? Just thinking of different time periods. So so the whole game will be changed then right early on when we were in the midst of New York. Just getting completely overwhelmed. I'VE A FRIEND OF MINE. Who's a friend of mine by the way who are er doctors and just you know? Hear from them from time to time They were in a war. And you know we listen to the scientists never in telling everyone if you possibly can stay home. Stay home and so for me I. This is me personally and every restaurant. They have to make their own decision based on the situation. They're in but for me it was. I think a better choice to keep my employees home Unemployment had kicked in the federal plus up unemployment's kicked in and so for me the calculation was I want people to stay home and wanting to stay home with their families Kids didn't have school to go to so Daycare wasn't arranged for and so I just thought it was a safer option especially when when the overwhelming majority of my employees coming on public transportation and so to ask them to do that and put themselves in their family to jeopardy. I didn't think it was a good idea now. I think the numbers are starting to come down I think in a few more weeks though they'll continue to come down and then I think it may be a safer to to make a different decision but again this this check. Everything changes day by day week by week and I imagine a week by now. Probably feel more comfortable asking my staff to come in. Your restaurants are pretty high end and you're talking about changing them into places that put together the food and So you'd rather get it cooked or maybe you'd get the ingredients with directions on how to cook it Yourself. But what about restaurants? Because I know you're so familiar with the restaurant industry. What about restaurants who are lower priced more like medium priced store you know diners and Delis and places like that? How do you see that part of the restaurant industry in the next year or two well? A lot of those small restaurant have already been doing takeout There's been a trend over the last couple of years to incorporate some sort of home delivery or into even medium restaurants either through some of the APPS that are out there. The you know. The seamless in the door to ashes of the world So the moved to doing that because the competition has become so so stiff that you're looking for any way you can to increase revenue Some of the problem those delivery services they charge you thirty percent and our margins are very slim and often so when you say they charge you you mean like you the restaurant or or the the consumer no me. The restaurant. They charge thirty percent for the privilege of delivering food. And obviously they're using their technology. So Yeah it's thirty percent margins aren't aren't that great and so when you factor that in You know you hope to make it up on volume but I. I don't know if the volume's going to be enough and so you know everyone's going to have to sort of figure it out but I think that all businesses are going to have to sort of modify what they do at least for the next year or so until we have a vaccine. Because the question really isn't win. Can Restaurant opened up? I think in New York I think the guidance now I think it's around July fifteenth I think restaurants are in the third Sort of Go around terms of what opens up. But that's not the question. The question isn't when I can open. The question is when the public feels comfortable walking into a restaurant where the bar pennant going to have a face mask on and servers going to have a face mask on. And there's so many touch points Even opening the door. Someone's going to have to come behind it and disinfected sitting down after you're if you're you know you finish your meal. Everything's going to have to be disinfected. I mean the smell of disinfecting disinfectant in a restaurant. When you're trying to eat a meal I don't know if people are going to feel comfortable doing that and I suspect that you know maybe for the first couple of weeks just people will feel some sort of solidarity and they WanNa get out there and help. But I think they're gonNA grow tired of it and then what happens if you're in a restaurant in even if it's semi you know crowded someone coughs the empty out the restaurant if a worker it comes down with with Kobe do you have to stop serving? And so there's just too many questions and I think that the expense of doing too distant eating I think we'll be again. Another layer of expense. That restaurants are not going to to cope with and my biggest fear is that yes we get open and what happens two months three months into this. Is that when the restaurants are going to start to close and so I think there are so many questions that need to be answered right now and I. I don't think anyone really has the answer. Let's talk about the food chain a little bit. You know. The food chain is probably very confused right now. So much. Food went to restaurants because as for so many of US eight. Those restaurants are closed is food getting diverted to markets and small markets. Or what is happening with these great questions in in most cases not And there's a lot of disruptions right now happening across the supply chain. There are large issues right now. Especially with me producers in meat distributors. We've seen Tyson close plants and Smithfield close plants because Workers weren't protected. A lot of the workers got sick. I mean in one plant alone in South Dakota Smithfield. Thirty six hundred employees over thousand got sick. They had shut the plant down. I believe that plan actually produced five percent of this country's pork and so You know what we have here on a large scale just to to look on a large scale we have corporate com concentration. That is quite frankly. These these companies are monopolies at this point and they have taken a distribution model and have stacked it up and concentrated in certain areas and so our food system is is not resilient Instead of actually spurting that out and having much more smaller regional producers with relied and allow these these companies have by smaller companies and just become really really big. And so. That's one problem. Large-scale so I mean there were estimates that ninety percent of the meat production could be jeopardized. So you have that and also you have the problem. With producers certain producers and certain distributors are set to do certain things and so if you have a milk distributor that is set up to purchase milk from dairy farm and they are producing milk. I say institutions meaning college campuses and hotels. I mean maybe they produce milk in a five gallon container. That has plastic bladder in it. And it's set up to put in dispenser those all close when schools closed and college campuses closed in hotels all closed down now. You have this distributor.

"Lagging nothing worked and the whole thing crashed for more than an hour. But then the prerecorded sequences minus the planned live in. Bits started rolling out one sequence after another sent in by a talented friend colleague or admirers of Sondheim. In his work the performances in total ran for the length of an average broadway musical. But we're much better than average as a TV show. It was up close and very personal. These people were for the most part in isolation with minimal musical accompaniment. And sometimes none at all unless you count the birds and the nearby stream that could be heard as Mandy.

"I I see. That can't be made to have enough issues and I came to terms with us in in my very early twenties and it was extremely liberating. It was at that time. Probably the happiest. I've felt you know one of the things we talked to one. You told me the last time. Is that your father worked with J Edgar Hoover when hoover was the head of the FBI and he wrote Hoover's correspondents. He wrote his speeches. He wrote his autobiography. If I remember correctly and then your mother started the CIA library you you had parents who helped keep the secrets store the secrets. And then you had this huge secret from them and And I just kind of put that together recently. Thinking about Thinking about what I wanted to talk with you about that. They couldn't accept your secret. Think even when your mother knew you were gay because she saw you on TV like would not engage with you and talk about it Like I was just off the table and I thought like gee how does that fit with a whole hoover thing the CIA thing like a family that was all about like understanding secrets? That's a very interesting series of thoughts. Frankly yeah and my and my father in particular but by the time I was born. My mother had had left her her position But my father of course was with Hoover for twenty six years And he was very private and secretive tonight. Tell you about him. Dad Bringing Home. The the Warren Commission the report of the Kennedy assassination now. He brought home the Warren Commission before it went to Congress and I don't know what possessed him but he I think he was just proud to have it and he told my mother well after dinner. I can hear the the water running in the bathtub of my parents bedroom and dad's watching television or something mother's gone and it turns out in the Bathtub With the Warren Commission so dad figures this out he knocks on the door. It's locked. He asked her to open the door. She refuses. He gets an axe and takes the door down to get the Commission the Warren Commission out of her hands. Because it was so secret. And this report on the Kennedy assassination. Like exactly yeah. Wow that was an axe basements. Were in the garage. That was that was a a potent memory. What were you doing crying? Your Dad Stop. Okay so this is. This is an example of the extremes. Your father would go to keep the secret secret exactly. Yeah so So when confronted with your secret. It's like they. They didn't want to know Well you know I think my father must have known also He He. He died before a fashion department. That would have killed them But my father's closest friends were all. Fbi people they were all bureau people and they would be at our house Sunday in the full watching the football games. And I have to tell you it was the gayus gathering. I think I've ever seen that. It just was I. Just I'm confident that Hoover's FBI was just a hot bed of closet cases. Really what makes you say this? Which lhota speculation that hoover was gay? Oh Yeah I that confirmed. Well I mean we. We do know was across dresser right. Okay well that's very interesting. My final question to you a very important one when you do go out and you wear a mask. What kind of mass you have is an a cloth mask made out of beautiful fabric or one of those just like Medical blue and white masks. It is a medical mask. Quite frankly given the circumstances I think the more medical looks better. People have offered to give me fashion mass in capital letters. And I said No. Thank you white guy. I have what I need and give it. Give that to someone who really needs a mask. Right now Also I don't to be thinking about. How do I tie this fashion mask into what I'm wearing and I think it's just so much better to where what you wear? And then you put on the medical mask because it's has a purpose in its serviceable and you don't have to be thinking about vanity right and or may yeah making a fashion statement It has been such a pleasure to talk with you. I can't thank you enough for doing this and please stay will will tear you. I WanNa thank you and and it's just a pleasure speaking with you in a real honor and I'm such a fan and the greatest pleasure for me would be when we get through all this pandemic stuff to eventually meet that would be. That would be fantastic. I love that that would be something to look forward to at the end of this so stay safe and be well you too. Thank you the entire season of Tim.

Ro- Correspondence and the autobiography for J. Edgar Hoover Hoover was head of the FBI and your mother started the CIA as library You are you're very open now. And that's that's part of what you've done as a mentor because you've not only been a fashion mentor. But I think you've been a lot of mentor to you've been a mentor. Even if it's just long distance with a lot of young gay people who are coming out. You did a great. It gets better video a few years ago. And so you you've been open about your life. How do you think having kept your own Sexual orientation secret and having grown up in a family whose job was to keep secrets. How did that affect your decision to be open about your life? Well quite frankly terry. It's a process that evolved. I mean there was a point when I had so many secrets and so many barriers and blockades of my own making that time one went away because I talked about it revealed it. I would feel physically lighter and it's just a huge relief. It's why I say don't lie about anything because when you lie you have to remember what you said to whom about. What's and what it was when project runway started and I was being interviewed. Occasionally my mother said to me. I just read this interview. Why aren't you lying about your age? Why why would I do that? And it turned out later. I found out that she was lying about her own age so she was lying about how old I happen to be. It's just so much so much more of a pleasure and a real joy to just do not have any secrets. I need to take a short break here. So let me do that.

"This is on camera How do you feel about that You've been a teacher for so many years because you're a teacher at Parsons long before you became a mentor on TV. Well as a teacher. I went through tremendous growing pains and learned through trial and error. What works and what doesn't And I learned early on that. You can't soft pedal and sugar coat things because it doesn't help the students. I also learned early on that. You can't be too blunt an instrument and delivering Critical analysis. Because if you are you're discredited The student just dismisses what you say as being mean spirited and unkind and and believes that you don't understand their work so I developed what I call a very socratic approach. I- pummeled people with questions. Because I need to know where they're coming from. I need to know a context before I dive in with my own analysis and for me the ideal is this is what I really strive for. The ideal is to get the individual with whom? I'm speaking to see what I see. And on project runway for sixteen seasons and and on making the cut for this one season there are occasions when I disrupt production in a manner of speaking because camera placement and I asked the designer to come stand next to me so they can see their own work from my point of view and say production. Because there's a camera on me. There's a camera on the designer. And when we switch things up the people in the control room get a little frantic but I want I want that designer to see the silhouette the proportions perhaps even the construction though on making the cut. It's not a sewing show. Which is a huge relief. The designers making close but it's not about is the ham crooked so for them to stand by me and say oh I see that a ham moment for me is the sweetest most wonderful thing in the world. It's okay I can leave you now because you get it you see it what you do about it. It's completely up to you but at least you see what I see as designer who mostly does fashion in black and point you say to her really needs a little bit of color and she says that's not me. I have to be true to myself and I see it as black And so it struck me like that must have been a difficult balancing act for you because you want somebody who has a vision who knows what their vision is and believes in that vision but at the same time you thought you know could really benefit with like a little bit of color. I was reflecting upon the The comments by the judges and and each individual assignment. Once it's presented someone's going home and I was very concerned about esther of superbly-talented designer and also a wonderful individual I am. I really adore and I said to her look color. You're you're used to black. It is a color but it's one color. How `Bout Merlo? How about chocolates? I mean we're talking about slight nuances off of black but it's still but it's a color it will show that you're synthesizing the judges are saying to you. And and your here's a product to show it but no chocolate was too much of a color for her or too much of a departure. I won't give away how she does okay so you came to see teaching and mentoring as a calling but when you started teaching you had stage fright you'd actually like throw up before client says. I I was a wreck and I had been been D- wouldn't I won't call it student. Teaching I was a teaching assistant The summer before the fall I began teaching and I loved it. I was perfectly relaxed and comfortable rbis fine and then this teaching position was will thrust upon me in a manner of speaking on by my mentor but of my favorite teachers of Old Time. Ronan slade. She said that faculty member had dropped out from teaching. Three dimensional design. And would I like the position will? Of course I mean a yes I would but also I wasn't going to disappoint Rona so the very first day I pull into the school parking lot and I promptly throw up all over the and I'm shaking and shake in and I get to the studio where I'm teaching and just the mirror. Anticipation to the students. Coming into the room has me trembling at. I braced myself against the walls. My back is against it because if I step away from it I'm just gonNA collapse the floor. I mean I needed that. That support so this went on for a week will five days and on Thursday of that week I rehearsed the meeting. I needed to have with Rona and on Friday. I had the meeting and the rehearsal was brief. I mean because it didn't require many words and just said you're I can't go on like this. This is just completely debilitating. My health is suffering not sleeping. I'm an emotional wreck I I can't go on like this. It's run-up who's Welch said in this very clipped voice of hers that she trusted that this experience would either kill me your me and she said I'm counting on the ladder. Good Day. Let's do. I mean twenty nine years later I was still teaching. I mean I'd roots adjusts completely love. It may guest.

"That. We think you'll find is useful or enjoyable as we do. We call this our roundabout roundup and I will go first. My daughter and I have been watching project runway The most recent season that finished up. I believe sometime in March This is season eighteen. And it's on its back on Bravo so it wasn't bravo than it moved to lifetime now came back to Bravo and it has carly kloss in the Heidi Klum role and Christian Syria. No past winner in the Tim. Gunn role and people were concerned about this to use the word that Tim. Gunn like to use a lot But I'm here to tell you that Christian is great. He is fun and funny and he just he just goes around and says and he can convey quite a lot with his little man but he has really good feedback and advice and he yeah. He's good he's gone so yes she soon. I feel like maybe watching project runway so we just started and It's been something fun doing together. Nice so and it's the season's over so you can you know you can start from the beginning and get all the way through it without having to wait for anything so astle we are doing Nicole. What is on the instagram minute? It you actually gone this one for me Catherine type in quite enjoying of late. So thank you very much for doing the research for me this past week. But I'm going to shout out an instagram account called comments by celebs and it's basically screen shots of instagram posts on which a celebrity has commented and You often see Chrissy Teigen but Lots of good ones. That give you make you chuckle. A lot of them are like former CO stars or You know where they're commenting on one another's page or There is even you know sister. You know siblings and It's cool it's it's very random and in it's kind of fun to see that they're just like us in the same vein of A. Didn't we WANNA talk here about rob blow on Instagram? And how his son has his sons roast him on instagram. All the time and this is sort of similar yet in spirit like there's one here just looking at its huge ackman's a instagram account. Any posted a picture of him and his wife and he was commemorating the twenty four. The last twenty four years so is there. Twenty four th wedding anniversary. So is that a picture of him and his lovely wife twenty four years ago and so he's saying you know I love you devs with every fiber my soul happy anniversary Yada Yada Yada and then Ryan Reynolds comments hanging there. Deb So it was just destroyed. You need at this time. That's right exactly. It's a lips. Have a Lotta time on their hands right now. So probably will be comedy have to do that. So what do you have Terry this week? Well for those of us who are still actually working. I have a recommendation of a very simple APP. That was very helpful for me. This past week is were recording. I think I've talked about before about the pomodoro technique by which you work for twenty five minutes get five minutes off work for twenty five minutes five minutes off. I think I've probably suggested other tools for doing this that I have used for awhile and then discarded as is my way but The one that I am using just at the moment that was very helpful. Got Me through a really intense four days worth of work. is just called tomato timer. And it's on the APP store for iphone. At least I don't know about android but it's just it has a little circle and you poke the circle and it starts counting down to zero and then it puts another circle for your five minutes and it's just that visual as the time goes the filling on the inside of the circle goes down so you kind of have a visual reminder. Also casts shows the time as it takes down Not a lot of bells and whistles not a lot of stuff to type in and fill in and follow up and report and all that just counts down for you in a visual manner. You can have it on your iphone next to your computer as you're working on it will keep you focused. Theoretically it did it worked very well for me for that space of time. So
Tim Gunn Stops By to Talk Coronavirus Couture and More
"You know what I was wondering I was. I've never seen Tim Gunn anything but at three piece suit. What is he wearing during Clinton and of course I have elevated what I've been wearing because I was walking around in pajamas and a robe for days and then I put on real close and it was horrifying? I understand the comfort trap that people fall into because when I put on real close I felt as though I was wearing a wet suit so tight and constraining and I thought this is awful. I thought no no get dressed more often. You GotTa do it. My body rejecting anything but cotton like surviving on any like nobody's. We're not doing it today. Will you know what my buddies doing?

You would be a GIN Martini. Dry Guys Tim. Look Sixty years on project runway and win. I heard making the cut. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I was I. This is going to be another project runway. We already had project runway but this show is extra special making the cut. Wasn't your thing to make it something bigger than just a design show. Oh we'll just hiding and I had this vision for a long time and owing to the success of project runway. No one wanted to tamper with the format. So we were. We were at a loss. We were at sea so when the show was going to another network Heidi and I- caucus and said this is our opportunity. Let's shop this. Let's see if there's any interest and we had a lot of interest but Amazon Prime Video Jennifer sulking in her team. I mean they. There was no contest where we wanted to be and Anza of course in addition to supporting the global aspect the branding aspect the travel aspects. Suddenly we have this opportunity to have the show shovel and it's just staggering. That was the thing I did Mike about project when I was like all. These books are so amazing. But a can you make them ready to wear and be. Where can I ever get them? You could never find the pieces but you guys do it. And you can click your remote control in by the winning BSB exactly.

"Last week. There was a dust up online. Mckee US going through our mid week. Corentin Malays a little feud. Let's our season two in something that's surprisingly has nothing to do with. The Corona virus are Wednesday variety published an interview with the weekend as part of the promotional war for his new album after hours. Which slaps I do love that. Oh I really enjoy it. Also and reflecting on the legacy of his first mix tape house of balloons. He seemed to think that usher's twenty twelve. Hit Climax sounded a lot like a week because it does the Internet quickly jumped in from everyone from usher himself to collaborator Diplo. Happening comments and I am just so thankful that this nonsense happened last week because it was nice to think about something else. I just wanted to say that IRA. I know that you said this has nothing to do with Corona Virus. But since everything tangentially has to do with corona virus. You know these men are just fighting fight. This is not a conversation that ever needed to be had. This isn't even need to be put in the variety article that I was put in but we're also thirsty for the content right now this I think gone under the radar in any other time. I think it would have had an impact regardless well. I'll say this I feel like what's missing from Social Interactions Right now on zoom. That is is spiciness because all of our interactions right now are so conciliatory. And we're so calming each other all the time so to hear someone say something even remotely Kinda Shady about another human being feels like to quote Tim. Gunn Autonomic yes. Why don't we get this out of the way? Mci whose side everyone is well. It's not truly that binary but I'm on the weekend side. I am groped. Why me okay. First of all climax sounds nothing like a weekends on pure first of all. It sounds exactly like a weekend song. And here's why I wanted the production which was mentioned and we can talk about what Diplo said. But here's here's weekend usher were both in this very unique position last year where they both played roles in movies where they had to play themselves. But like five years prior ten years prior sure with hustlers and the weekend with uncut gems so I had recently went back and checked into their discography and before any of this even happened. I was like well. There was a time around twenty ten when usher decided that he was going to. Just be a very like dark. R&b Artists which he had never touched before prior to that he was doing Dj. Got His falling in love again. And all of these kind of Club R. and B. Hits. So what is the only thing that changed? During that time the dream was making more ambient music and then the weekend came and he changed the entire R. and B. Soundscape. I'm just saying I those influences strong. Well you did the dramaturge research. Wow Okay we're all in this. I'm a big big weekend fair for that man. Ira Don't fight. Listen I love the weekend? Even with his sex without love anthems even with his creepy deeds a handout Condoms with good girls placid across it at his concerts. Like a demon. I have enjoyed a weekend shows. I mean I enjoyed his color. Sub For one and I seen him another time but for me I feel like that Chile. R&b vibe is something that was just sort of ushered in. Not just by him. But I also don't find us. There's music that Chile R. and B. I think it was going more in terms of electronic music. Edm SORT of popping off. I think you're right. I think you're right except for with the exception of climax I remember climax came out I remember I was thinking this is strange doesn't sound anything like ushers ever done. I like it so so much. It's not his vocals. I will give you. Usher is a better singer. He's a better creator. Of course he's a better dancer. He's looks better shirtless. There's so much that works for him as an artist that doesn't work for the weekend in a traditional sense. But that's exactly what it is I was. This is a weekend song. This is not it. Didn't feel like usher. I do have to say what I liked about the weekend. What he said in that article is just the pettiness of the and I couldn't help but be angry kind of feeling like when an artist is defensive. I just believe instinctively that they are really good artists. Why would you be so protective on? And then usher doing that. Sung response where he did his. I don't know anything about singing. But his like I'll say eleven active response or whatever he did it did feel a little. I thought yeah and it doesn't properly counter. What he had said. I think the thing where he was like. Oh climax challenge was the most forty one year. Old thing I've ever seen someone do like respond respond. He had his tweet which I know I loved. I'm sure talk about that. I read us is tweet. What about like the full moon never like barking dog? What does that is very Langston. Hughes of hand. It means that before the weekend was coming up with a way to reference cocaine. In every song of his there was usher and the face. Okay uh sure are. Maybe he didn't sound like Asher on climate but I think that's also because he just started working with diplo on that album if no ushers career he has worked with different producers who give him sort of aid different sound. He sort of reinvents himself in a way with each album. The way that a pop artist would you know? His first album was produced by diddy. It had that sort of like ninety four sound and then his album my way the one that really skyrocketed him to fame was a baby face. Production okay that was the face in la read and then eight seven one that is the Neptune's giving you all of like the fire shit that you could ever want from him and then you have. Jemaine depre- Bryan Michael Cox working on Confessions. And let me tell you something. I've seen the weekend live and I've seen other alive live and the confessions tour were tiny and John. Legend opened for usher cannot be matched. Listen here pursley. I want to ask you a question this with a concert stubs to match. Okay I want to know this. That was me spending my student. Loan money would see. Okay explain to me how you can listen to usher's first album but you can't listen to Justin BIEBER's first album. Both of them are just as whiny just as R&B just as why do you have a record deal? I do not say that I listen to us or so tidal the most. I was just giving you the history of it. I don't listen to that. I start with my way. I am eighty-seven on one person myself. You make me want him. I do have to say between the two of them and I obviously like the weekend but I think if I had to pick a favorite song between the two of them you don't have to call would still be my number one so to call after the night. Don't leave your girl around me to play it for Real Nigga for rail that is an iconic line in Newsweek. Okay well so is so. Is the weekends got the walls kicking? She's six months pregnant. That's a great lyric. Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? No one silence. I received. Who Else can forget? I'm not a bitch. On what a bitch and fed on means got my stomach. Feeling Sickly Oscar nominee is. So you know like religiously. I have to also think of that. Thank you bye bye. Default I have listed Lewis. I would okay. Well speaking of music and to give us something. A fight about there was a new meam that took over twitter this week. That was slightly more Economical with sharing the wealth as opposed to the MEAM. That Lewis got mad about last week. That movie me because this one invited people to pick their four favorite albums with no skips and this is hard because the parameters of this say no skips and as we were saying before. There are a lot of albums that I think are fucking excellent. Do I get one or two songs on them? Yes lemonade Dunbar. Who Listen to say. I feel the same way who is. Don't nobody that's my name call me. Don't nobody I don't even. I don't like daddy lessons if you know Jerry has worn off on me a little bit but Yeah I can think that album is fucking amazing. I mean there are prince albums you know. Chill Whitney up like iconic albums from artists that I love but there may be like one song amend. I'm just sort of like when we were putting these together. I literally almost picked prince a couple of times like I thought. Oh nine thousand. Nine hundred nine. Like Samuel couldn't get through free. You know what I mean. There's just one track every time the purple rain like I can't stand computer. Blue and famously don't like the Song Purple rain either but we've already find that territory so I'm going to start with you. Aida the weekend Fan What are your albums with? No skips let me Guess House. Blew Kinda mix tape and the weekend. The weekend I'd like I will defend him but I know he's not in my list of audio bibles that would be miseducation of Lauryn Hill by Lauryn Hill. Easy that should be hands down a choice for everyone More modern one blonde Frank Ocean love that love that album Stankonia Neha outcast and then the heart the last ones hard to pick because they have so many but I will tell amy wine house back to black no ever question for you. Do you WanNa hear some Gangsta Shit. Because I fucking love that song yes also you bring up the miseducation of Lauryn Hill. This is an appreciation of music. That I feel kids today. Don't get but like Lauren. Hill was my third CD and therefore for a while it was maybe the only music I listen to for seven or eight months straight. Yes that album now to mean yields like Biblical or something just every verse etc. What's interesting about the miseducation of Lauryn Hill? Those my friend Joe CAN BOOSTER. Fragile can booster breath separately. There is a conservative streak that runs through it. There's a life begins at conception vibe going on sometimes. Oh Yes yes I mean do wop. That thing is a slut shame anthem. Truly how you GonNa win when you ain't right within you. How hair done your hair done by. Koreans literally throws the were Jessica out that song. I will always remember the miseducation of Lauryn Hill because we had a maybe a sixth grade class where you could always bring in a CD. One day of the week and play it and you know it always had to be appropriate for school and like for A. While we had a streak of white kids bringing in like Marilyn Manson and whatever and I was not into that shit at that point as a black kid in like nineteen ninety eight but I brought him the education of Morgan Hill. And I remember you know. We got to ex factor that thing right really vibe ing and then when the album gets into slower R. and B. Stuff. I remember this bitch. Camille said to me yeah. Maybe this wasn't the right album the bring in. It's not really that height. Well remember when we're children and the only Senate for good music was high. Fuck you Camille. If you're in high like it was just does it..

"Game where we ask people who now have nothing better to do to do something worse. It's called not my job. Tim Gunn is known for his style. His sharp opinions on fashion. His catchphrase make it work but mostly for always always being impeccably dressed. He's joining us now from his home and we assume even his sweatpants are perfectly creased. Tim Gunn Welcome back to wait. Wait thank you Peter. I'm thrilled to be with you to talk to you so first question. How are you doing with all this? How are you enjoying being stuck in your apartment? All Day I am happy as a clam. I love being alone at home. This is a dream for me. You can't go anywhere in some ways. It's a dream. I mean it's a horrible thing to say given the crisis that we're in but I have a beautiful view out my kitchen window with Amsterdam Avenue I couldn't be more content. I feel to be honest. I feel very spoilt. Maybe Corona viruses. A Fan who knows. I have a question though Tim. You live obviously in New York apartment. I live in a house. I don't know what it's like so are you. Is everybody locked in their apartments. The do you like banging on the walls to communicate like people do in prison cells. I'm on a floor in my apartment with eight other or seven other apartment. Everyone is gone there in their second homes. I'm the only one on the score who doesn't have a second home and frankly if I had a second home I wouldn't go to what I wanted to be in New York. I WanNa be here feeling the pulse of what's happening and I want to be supportive so I'm not going anywhere but I am alone. It's it would also be a good time to break into their apartments and make fun of their clothing. I have no now. I know you're busy. You have a new show. I'm assuming that means that you like everybody else are doing remote video meetings many and I'm really bad at it really bad. How could you be bad at it? You you're boring I have this. I bought a tripod and I put my phone on it and I look awful I can't get a correct view of what I once but at the same time compared to everything else who cares yes. There is always that But I think I'm going to ask a question that has been on my mind since this whole thing began and I bet it's true of most people in the country. What does Tim Gunn where to a video meeting? Well I'm owning the fact that I'm in my apartment and I'm not going anywhere. I wear a turtleneck and a pair of jeans really. Yeah which is like so much better than what everybody else leader. I will confess to you right now. You know our conversation. I'M WEARING MY PAJAMAS. Are you are they? I'm imagining that. You're pajamas would be excellent. No not at all. I mean. Honestly their their wool J. crew. I have a bathrobe on and of course the little pocket square. But that's fine. I think you it. Does it bother you that you haven't been able to have an occasion to wear a suit? Which is how we all know you. Well yeah can I make a suggestion to him? If you have a full length mirror just paying to suit onto it and then you can kinda step in and then it looks like you're wearing a suit and you don't have to go to the trouble of point long. Been spending a lot of time by himself. Well yes let's talk about the new show. It's called making the cut and you reunited with Heidi Klum from my dear absolutely fabulous body. Clone you traveling all over the world for this show. How do you handle all the travel? Is that something you enjoy? Well we didn't have that many destinations but yeah packing is a pain. Yes especially for you because you of course have to bring along like you know a look right well. I'm responsible for my own wardrobe. So yes I. I brought everything that I needed to wear. I had four suitcases. That were big But I'm very meticulous about everything and everything needs to be in a place because otherwise my brain gets completely muddled. Well I was just wondering because obviously you have to do that. Your Tim Gunn you. You have to show up especially camera looking great every time. Do you ever wish given that you could be someone like me. Who just show up wearing the same stain Schmidt I had on yesterday. Nobody because they don't expect anything. If you were here you could see. I regret that I don't have someone to tell me that my highest Brooklyn because ties. Mike Migrate they do. We can't see them Do you think people are afraid to tell you that your ties crooked. Because they think that's how the welcome in Paris this year like people who would ever come up to you and correct you. I'm sorry can't change it. Don't tell them. But if you have spinach in your teeth. Tell me if you walked out and had spinach in your teeth. The next day people all over this country and world would be pudding spinach. They said we'll tell gun. Had it must be cool and Tim. Gunderman one it. Well Tim. It is always such a pleasure to talk to you. But this time we have invited you here to play a game. We're calling making the PUTT. You hosted this new show. It's called making the cut. We thought we'd ask you about making the PUTT. That is three questions about golf. Now I should say yes. We didn't know for certain that you're not a golfer but we were certain you would never ever dress like one bill. Who is Tim? Gunn playing for Leslie. Burns have said he ago California. All right ready to go tim. Excellent here we go first question. If you're looking to add a bit of excitement to your golf game head to Brisbane Australia where a local golf course includes which of these unique obstacles a the water hazards are filled with killer. Sharks be the land is shared with a hunting preserve. So where even our injure or see it is on alternate weekends bombed by the Australian Air Force. I will say B B that the land share of the hunting preserves aware even orange pants was a killer. Sharks your kid. It's right on the seacoast to end the water hazards or like inlets and tidal pools. And they do in fact have sharks in there looking around so if you hit a ball into one of these do not go get it. Who in their right mind would go there. Who knows at that point two more chances here we go? Here's your next question. Some people love golf. Some people really do not movie director. John Huston really did not like golf but he wants did what. He flew over a celebrity golf tournament and dropped five thousand golf balls onto the course be. He introduced combat. Gulf sport in which you hit the ball directly at your opponent or see he tried to cast Golf Great Sam Snead in the Humphrey Bogart role in the African Queen. Oh my gosh I guess I'll say hey your.

The first version of the bill would have created a five hundred billion dollar fund that the administration could have handed out as they liked. The wouldn't even have had to reveal what they did with it till the end of the year when asked who would oversee the program. The president said quote. I'll be the oversight unquote as in. He'll take all the money so he can look it over. So they put putting some safeguards there will be oversight committee and they even wrote in a rule that money can't go to any company owned by the President or his family and they wrote this specifically his son-in-law it's weird you have the bill out of Congress hundreds of pages and technical language and on page eight. Somebody scrawls not you jared on the one hand. It's good to help them. People on the other hand kind of feels like a Mafia boss. Just tucking wads of cash into your shirt and don't worry about it kid. It's like it's like when somebody crashes your car and destroys it and you're like you ruined my car. And they just pull out a legacy. We're GONNA take one hundred could use a new car anyway. But I know this is really hard and a lot of people and I'm not trying to minimize that but we are sort of uniquely prepared for this. We've all kind of being self-isolation anyway. It's true we had met flexing. Can you imagine if this happened in the early eighties? We'd have crude would be. I wonder if the corona virus was like sentient would be like but I thought this is what you all want staying at home anyway and ordering everything to be delivered and keeping apart from each other. You didn't. I'm so sorry true. All Right Tracy we have one more quote for you. Here it is. I'm married to a let's circle back guy who knew that was a woman named Laura Norkin learned that her husband says that phrase all the time because he like a lot of us have to do what exactly right. He has to work from home. Those of us who are lucky enough to still have jobs have now learned how tricky it is to do. All of your meetings remotely from home for one thing. You have to pretend to pay attention. There will be an Oscar category this year for best hiding that. You're actually reading twitter in another window. One by a white person likely yes. People of course are constantly being interrupted at their meetings by kids or pets or the hostage escaping from the basement and even worse partners are finding out what they're like at work like you heard you've been together for fifteen years and all of a sudden you find out you live with someone who likes to start business meetings with emotional check ins you also have. Everyone also looks really ridiculous because their business on top and like horrible belt lists pant on the bottom. I did wrong way round. I've been going shirtless. And then just press panned. I loved it this. This is turned parents into the monster in the closet. It's true there's somebody in the closet and he's talking about third quarter projections are one fun thing is. We're all getting to see what. News anchors homes look like Anderson Cooper for example apparently lives in Downton Abbey who knew and Wolf Blitzer lives in actual wolf den but the best part is they all live in the studio. I have not seen well at home. There are few people who are at home and then a few people that are like I guess forced at gunpoint to go into the regular studios. It's a little actually. I made that up. It's a joke. I don't know if Wolf Blitzer has a home. I think when he's done they stand him in the corner and he stays there silently until next show.

And this is what I mean. Well, project one runway is going back to Bravo in twenty nine thousand nine interest. Yeah, I thought it was interesting. Also that their contracts didn't prevent them from jumping from project runway right to another fashion reality, obviously, it's not going to be the same kind. Maybe that's how they get.

"And let's start with some dirty. Shady court injury, courtesy C C E O of CBS les Moonves. This report was printed last night and the Huffington Post basically, accusing CBS boss les Moonves Bess of ruining Janet Jackson's career post nipple gate, of course, nipple gate being the incident at the two thousand four Super Bowl where Janet Jackson had her famous wardrobe malfunction. Yes. And this story had me riveted in my bed as I was trying to not go to sleep last night. I mean, it tells a very very. Detailed account of what lengths he went to to get rid of any career that she had at that point. Like, yeah. Give one example. Hey, so for example, we'll set the stage nipple gate happened CBS was fined five hundred fifty thousand dollars by the FCC. After even after the fact that Janet Jackson insisted that the exposure was accidental. So CBS was fine. Half a million dollars after that less moon vests cancelled Janet Jackson's plan performance at the two thousand four Grammys later that month less moon has ordered VH1. an MTV to stop playing all her videos and directed. Oh, sorry. You were just gonna. Oh. Yeah. Right. Well, by the way, VH1. an MTV being owned by Viacom and les Moonves has also directed. Viacom owned radio stations to pull her songs from their plan. House and even went so far. And I didn't realize Viacom, the tentacles they have. But they own Simon and Schuster, whatever. Whoever owns them owns them, blah, blah, blah, and they gave her a book deal, and he was livid. Somehow, it's escaped his. Fought wa. Well, and keep in mind that this book deal happened seven years after the Super Bowl. So this book wile happened in two thousand eleven and he was angry that Janet Jackson got that book deal with Simon and Schuster, excuse me. Now, nobody from CBS is immediately responding to any kind of commentary and les Moonves is currently negotiating with the CBS board for his possible exit from the company just a couple of months after that New Yorker article that was published reported multiple accusations of sexual harassment against les Moonves us. So it's. Gosh. Isn't that? Why is it that we sort of that story story sort of dropped away in other cases, where somebody of that level of power had been accused of the things he'd been accused of that would've stayed sort of bubbling in the ether and that sort of dropped out of the headlines. So such that it wasn't until we were talking about this a little bit this morning that I went. Oh, yeah. I think for teaser water. Yes. Two reasons one less moon vest. He's very powerful in the world of media. But he's not a household name to everybody a lot of people. I think kind of knew Harvey Weinstein was people knowing Kevin Spacey was and to what's Munoz is still at the height of his power. And that was something you brought up very importantly at the time that the way the reason that he was being handled and treated differently by not only his colleagues, but also the media was because he is a power player. He is not was power. Although he's. A was but the way in which he will be was is actually worthy of discussion as well. Because essentially at this point he's negotiating his departure. It sounds like from CBS, and I'm like, oh that must be nice. You can serially sexual assault women for decades. And then then. Yeah. In terms of your golden parachute there and to this articles point it shows how powerful les Moonves is with somebody as a superstar like Janet Jackson. Janet jackson. One of the biggest music superstars in the world her career arguably completely impacted by the directives of this one individual only because of his ego did her career suffer, right? Just tells you again, the danger of putting too much power. Like, the best thing to ever did was shine a light on the intense power that individuals have in a particular industry. I mean, really does one person need to have the power to make and break. Someone who not it's not as though less moonville has kept her from reaching her full potential. She was one of the most one of the top performing artists of all time. And it is to say that his power was such that he was able to. To put a major. He's not responsible for everything in her career or life. But no. But he definitely made it impossible at that time for her to excel at what she did which I just think at the end of the day. That's the lesson is like no one per, of course, sexual assault needs to end. But no one person also should have that much power over other people's livelihoods also proved that American hold a grudge. Yeah. Wow. We have seen that time. And again, well, we'll keep an eye on les Moonves and whether or not he's leaving CBS as time progresses now. A couple of people who are leaving their jobs would be Heidi Klum, and Tim Gunn. They're saying goodbye to project. Seasons. No, they are not making it work. However, they won't be gone for long because they're going to be back on TV on a new reality fashion series with Amazon prime video. Okay. So it's going to be project runway, but but different a different name. So if you're sad about this don't be sad because they probably have a better TV deliver on Amazon. No, essentially, but it's still going to be the is the show still going to be the same concept as project runway let me give you the official word from Amazon about their upcoming series. So Tim Gunn Heidi Klum, their new Amazon series will be a fresh take in the reality space and will appeal to a global audience who are entertained by competition, storytelling an authentic additionally, Amazon fashion will create a shopping experience for viewers. So what kind of interesting and cool. But can we also basically what the show is? Because this lady the third time that that show has. Removed. Project runway is still going to exist on life, but they're going to be. They're leaving project runway under sixteen seasons. Tim Gunn Heidi clue making their own fresh, take global audience oriented fashion reality competition with that sounds not like a fresh take. That sounds like the same old seal take we've been watching for however many season. But now you get to shop that is the new take what is created on Amazon. I give them all your money. Exactly. Hey, who am I kidding? The Oscars are no longer going to be giving out that most popular Oscar that they said they were going to a couple of months ago. People. By the academy of Motion Pictures Arts and sciences is backtracking from its decision in August to create that brand new Oscars category. That would celebrate the best popular movies of the year. Now, they're saying that they're just temporarily shelving the idea, and then it's not going to debut sometime soon. But something tells me that this is never going down. Thank goodness. I kinda wish their PR statement would have been like, hey, guys. Sorry, we were drunk, and we came up with that idea. Turns out. It was dumb by. Alright, thanks Holly for that lovely dirt. And we come back. We need a player for our thirty second pop culture challenge. We're going to give you thirty seconds to answer five pop culture questions if you get them..
