"It says i'm growing old not that i've grown old and the different things that happen when you do slowing you walk in on but why is it. That was the first song that i wanted to do. And then secondly was all mother earth when we did it. Originally i say it and ethan said well you know to literally. It's a great is great but the melody is not all that and then i. So what about if i speak it. What about if. I talk it. What do you think. And he said. Look give it a shot so we did. And that's how that came about. Because i'd always been interested in his spoken word is he ever. Since i heard hug williams do luke the drifter and that was hype williams speaking songs as opposed to saying them and i always liked that. So i wanted to do that. So we did Old mother earth like that and the talk and television reality blues which was already that any todd snider. Yeah that's that's an amazing rendition of that. Now these sums also storytelling songs. The there's when when i grow older and the water boys storytelling some probably none. More so than the didn't one more cup of coffee for the road. I mean he's obviously. These are songs that paint pitches for most listeners but as an interpreter. If those songs you have to kind of get into a you riding a horse through that valley that bob dylan talks about a you have to get take on the mantle to sing those songs. I look at songs like an actor looks at a script. You know when you when you take on a role. That's where i like to say is my interpretation of this song. It's like an actor when he takes or she takes pot they put their own self into that role. As when you see somebody else do. It is going to be different. You know then that actor or actress doing that road. And i feel like that when i sing a song i get into the picture of i see that girl in gypsy camp that he sale about you know his like your breath is sweet deal your is i like to jews in in the night. I say instead of the sky. It doesn't doesn't right but that's thought yeah so you get in to it. That's what i do. I put myself in the gypsy camp on there. I'm looking at this girl and fathers you know. Sheldon the odds. Ease these the king of the gypsies. And you know. I'm in the camp. And that's that's the way. I see it and dylan himself says when people say when. But what were you thinking when you did it and he says you take from it what you put into your own life which which is true so that one more cup of coffee for me maybe different to somebody else. It's like being in a place where you think well. I don't know whether i should really be here. But maybe just another little taste of whatever it is before i go to the valley below you know which is very simple for me as honourable the following day you you know with a cup of coffee and a big cardiac like that. But it's it's being somewhere where you think that last drink. Should i have another one on. Not i get into the story. That's that's what i do..

I we're talking about the wonderful new record surrounded by time for which there has been much inexpert crooning around my sitting room and kitchen in south london. It's an amazing thing. And i wanted to ask you first time about choosing the material to go on there. You've got a real broad brushstrokes kind of approach to some of the things on there. How did that come about well. First of all. I'd worked with ethan before i thought well as a good start right there to to use lethem and to do something different from what we had done previously because the i did three albums with ethan sort of straight ahead of roots music live in-studio studio rhythm section straight ahead so this time we sort of put our heads together and civil. It needs to sound different unless experiment with it sounds. So that's what we did. So i i. When i when i went into mono valley in monmouth in wales i i might ever recorded in wales funnily enough because in the sixties you see. They didn't have recording studios in south ways. I thought well. This is a good place to start with recorded in wales in dimona valley. The welsh dragon was flying outside the studio and i thought well as a good start as an omen right there so then we went into so even said well songs you know and i said well. I've held onto his songs. Says was about thirty to thirty years. Old called is growing old. Which was written by. A man called bobby cole. And he gave it to me in las vegas in the seventies and i said well look. I think i'm not old enough to do this song at that time. So that was the one that i held. And i thought if i ever do lucky enough to grow old i'll do it then so i said to ethan. I think this is time to do this song now. And he said well. Do you want to admit to growing old..

"That's you know that's kept me. I remember i remember being bedridden and So that that helped it helped innocent and another thing. It stopped me going into the coal mines because in wales at that time you see a lot of people who are going into my father was a coal miner and maybe i would have become a coal miner. But because i had two losses you know on the on the lung. The doctor said you you cannot work in a coal mine. So that That was a blessing in disguise as well did you see singing as an alternative to the modern world yourself. What no singing to me was a very natural thing to do. I wasn't thinking that it would sort of get me out of wales or anything. I love living in wales But it was a thing that i singing was the thing that i loved to do and i did think to myself when i was a child. You know. I thought if i could if i could do this as a profession. This would be fantastic. This is what i want to do. not to. Do you have to do a job of work that you don't like in order to make money which most people have to do in order to survive. I thought if i could do this. I have a gift and if i if i could do it as a profession than that would be. That would be it for me and thank god. It turned out that way. I wanna thank you so much for talking with us.

Not who's the best who tries to us for one hour you're giving steps to children and and they don't know they're right from the aleph and you're demanding excellence and you had demanding silence no chewing gum and no bad manners. No fighting no foul language and stand straight. Lift your head up and put your right foot front and do it on the music and now twice as fast and so on and you can see the lookers over in a back inside it kind of hands in their pocket and they kind of giggling and laughing. Get rid of it right away talented. They're not ready yet next year when ready so it's those that try kind of line. Do you like to walk between fun and discipline. And i'm sure you want your students to be as disciplined as possible onto to dance as well as possible on the other hand. I don't know how much pressure you wanna put on them. You know so that they. They worry about Not not living up to expectations There is a thing called precision. There's a thing called editing being precise and knowing how to edit and that's the secret of being creative so i'll start by saying to a class of an auditorium full of children. I'll say i want the first three rows to stand up and quietly go to the stage spread out on the stage stand everywhere. Fill every inch of space. The smallest people in front the tolleson. The back now here. It is i tell them. They have ten seconds exactly ten seconds to do this to fill those ten seconds. Three rows of children thirty children get up and run yelling and screaming to the stage and end up all in lines in the back right and they all get there within three or four seconds. Then i said number one. I asked you to do a quietly number two. You're supposed to fill every inch of the space and the stages forty by forty. So you have to be all over at staggered. The shorter people front and i said ten seconds. You were there in three. You must take ten not nine not eight ten and now go back and do it again and if i have to call you a third time i teach this class now the second time they get it. It's absolutely quiet. They get to their place and they take take all ten seconds. They get there early. They'll walk in little circles until the ten seconds are up the countdowns over they freeze they get it and then i say you just learn what dances about it controls time and it controls space you control time and you control space with your body you and that's the first thing that dance you just began to dance. Let's talk about how you started dancing. How did you start to dance Well my mother was determined that her children not Be bumps in the street and trouble so when my sister went to a ballet class i was dragged along made to sit and watch madam set up one hundred eighty i and saint nicholas and this is ninety forty two and i tried to disrupt the class at make noise. Little sounds a little squeaks. And play with the rosin and madame said it was very smart. She just watched. And then the end the class to these leaps jumps that you do consecutively shushma or changes. And she said you with all your energy. And fiddling can you do this. Can you jump as high girls. Get up and try this. So i'd get up and do the jumps and i love doing the jumps. Everybody applaud me. And i'd leap and leap and leap. So she says every day if you sit there quietly let you do the jumps so sit there waiting for the jumps. Then she said but you make noise when you land so you have to take the beginning of class where you practice the please. This will you begin to get the strength and learn how to come out of the air and land so i do the beginning of class. I'd run and sit waiting for the end. Then she said you look sloppy in the air. You've got to learn how the whole your body and your arms point sheffi you've gotta take the middle of the client by then i was ready. So she She did exactly. She challenge you test. You set up the environment of excellence and congratulated you when you succeeded and made it harder. Shed saying she did everything right. You've run into a lot of your Boy students who are a little uncomfortable about being possibly associated with ballet What about you when you were young. Did your friends give you a hard time about it where you embarrassed about it yourself. No not one little bit. Because you see the i would absolutely be down there dancing and seeing great dances and i'd come back around the block and it'll be waiting where where you've been. We hear you enter a dancing class. And i said yes and it's great. There's this man with all these muscles and he leaps in a year and he doesn't make noise and all. These turns ski andre lipsky and and he does these double tours and he does like this on a street corner in front of dave's candy shop on one hundred and sixty third and saint nicholas. I started dancing. And getting all my gang to try and do double tours and no problem. And then when i got in new york city ballet i was fifteen. This sneak down to city centre. Twenty-five gang members. And i'd go out and i'd open the fire escape and they'd come up at half hour and i let them in the balcony and so i'd come on in the quarter bali of symphony and eight eight boys in command in a quarterback and one teenager me and all up from the balcony whistles and screams. Every time i come on stage they all know that my gang was out there. A moment for you when you knew this is it. I am now going to retire from professional. Yes what was that moment. A first injuries serious injuries and in the hospital. And dr saying that's it you're not gonna dance again but shing was saying no you have to come back. I need you. You have to come back. So i went back and danced and sure enough a year later i had another operation. Well then i said wait a minute balancing so extraordinary. And he's fading. And i'm fading. I'm just gonna stay in dance as long as i can with him. And meanwhile start national dance institute. So i began to dance but role started out of sixty. Bally's i do fifty because the minute do something badly or didn't like it. I drop it until finally eighty four eighty three. Eighty four ninety. It just was no good. I had to bally's left that. I felt i could dance and i didn't like it anymore. And the effort of getting on stage was too painful. And i thought i don't belong here anymore so i quit and i don't even remember who that person was that. Use the dance. My look at all films or see people do my roles. I can hardly remember. Who is that person. Why remember i. It's like somebody else. I become somebody else. It's not my body can't move that way anymore. I don't even feel like i was a dancer like that. It's somebody else i look at. It's another person when you do look at somebody dancing one of the ballets that you did. What emotional response you have is is it. Oh that's nice carrying it on or or is it. Envy that that they can still dance and you can't now. I don't like anybody doing my roles. Now what happens is looking dancing and unless they do something special for it that excites me and thrills me. I don't like bali. I know it. So well i know everything about it. There are a few dances male. Dances that. I still love to see but they better be good. I otherwise there. I've seen the best. I don't wanna see anything second rate.

Amy adams was supposed to be released last year but was held back due to the pandemic. it's based on the bestselling novel by dan. Mallory writing under the pseudonym. Aj finn which stirred controversy in the literary world when it was published in two thousand eighteen are film critic. Justin chang has this review after being delayed for a year. The woman in the window arrives on netflix. This week bearing more than the usual baggage for a new release two years ago. Dan mallory the author of the novel on which spaced was accused of fabricating details about his life and career round the same time. People noted plot similarities between his book. And sarah a denzil. 2016 crime novel saving april. I couldn't help. Think about these controversies. As i watched the woman in the window. Which features most untrustworthy protagonist and pays extended to other crime novels and movies. The most obvious influence is rear window only this time. Instead of jimmy stewart laid up with a broken leg. We're following a child psychologist. Dr anna fox who has severe gore phobia and hasn't left her new york brownstone in months. Anna is played by amy adams who not for the first time is very good in a movie that doesn't prove entirely worthy of her to say that it falls short of rear window would of course be unfair since that's true of most suspense films even some great ones but the woman in the window is ultimately to mechanical in its hitchcock ian meta flourishes to feel like much more than genre exercise still holds your attention on its own derivative terms speaking as someone who loves vintage crime films. I'm sympathetic to any movie. That geeks out over them to the housebound. Anna spends a lot of time watching these older movies from hitchcock classics. Like spellbound to timeless. Who've done it's laura and the humphrey bogart lauren. Bacall mystery dark passage. it's fun to watch snippets of them along with her and to mentally prepare for the plot turns. They may be foreshadowing pretty soon. Anna is addicted to a real life thriller that appears to be playing out in the house across the street where a family of three the russel's have just moved in one night and it gets a visit from fifteen year old. Ethan russell a sensitive kid who gives off slightly awkward. Norman bates vibes later that week. The boy's mother played by julianne moore stops by. She's an odd but sympathetic. Figure somehow both chatty and cagey and she makes some insinuating remarks about how controlling ethan's father is he's played by gary oldman and when he arrives anna's doorstep sometime later apparently looking for his wife analyze and tells him she hasn't had any visitors a few nights later. Anna looks out her window into the russell's home and sees ethan's mom being attacked by an unseen assailant after trying in vain to take a photo and calls. The police later to detectives coming home with mr russell high. What is this mamiya right. And why is he here. Mr russell believes that you made a mistake. You have never met my wife. She helps me one night. We spent evening together. Six in fact. He came here looking for her. I was looking for my son not my wife and you told me no one being here. I allied we played jin. Would you live out that. I was afraid that you would punish her for praying. Gyda doesn't matter. The point is is that nothing's happened. No i know what i saw happen to anyone. I zoomed in with the camera to take a picture. No i did not take spying on our house. The important thing is is that everybody's okay. Yeah as everyone begins to doubt and a side of the story so do we even from the beginning. It's clear that she's withholding some key details about her life. We hear her talking on the phone with her husband. And their young daughter from whom she separated for unexplained reasons anna drinks a lot which is a bad idea. Since she's on a lot of medication she's a classic unreliable narrator a popular trope that has surfaced in similar recent thrillers. Like gone girl and the girl on the train. It's a shame that the woman in the window isn't better than it is given the talent involved. The script was written by the playwright. Tracy letts who has a slide cameo as anna's therapist and it was directed by the english filmmaker joe wright who demonstrated real flair in his adaptations of pride and prejudice. Atonement anna karenina stylized them in ways. That felt fresh and daringly. Cinematic right tries to do the same thing here. He throws a lot of frenzied technique at the screen including rapid fire at its giant eyeball close ups and a danny healthman score. That might be channeling. The different voices inside anna's head he shoots the house interiors from wide angles. That suggest this isn't just a home but a stage where anna performs the theater of her life but none of it really works. The movie cuts from one job to the next so quickly that no suspense or dread is able to build and for all the attempts to convey some sense of anna's agitated state we never really feel like were inside her head. That's no knock on. Amy adams who tries to underplay the intensity and find her character's complexity she plays up anna's moments of lucidity and her natural empathy for others as she begins digging around in the russel's past and also her own as the walls close in and the story wraps up with a series of fairly predictable twists. You can't help rooting for anna. And hoping perhaps that the next crime thriller she watches. Might be better than this one. Justin chang is the film critic for the l. a. times.

But i think when you started performing music it was mostly in pubs to audiences of men Well both i sang in pubs. Which was mixed you know.

The lord's prayer in religious instruction and they said you. You sound like a gospel singer. I said i don't know. I go to a presbyterian chapel witching hymns on a sunday afternoon you know but that's that's about as far as it goes caffeine. I was talking about new album which love it's very bluesy. Yes but i sat jesse. Will i think tom's really blues singer jesse snow. He's a soul singer. Watch are you well. That's a good point. It was soul singing. You see it all comes from the church. Al jolson being jolted. When i was a kid. Yeah and i loved what he did. So who are you real fabulous the people you look up to you your idols when you're going besides gels as they blues singers. Yes gushing your you. See a new coach world but gospel is well these this gospel blues and then it turned into what we know a sold but that only kicked in the sixties where they used solely.

It was christmas day guarded and in there and we had these choirs and i testing the lost. My i lost my voice the day before which was really great. When you're doing television special christmas day with tom jones but but i remember hearing you sing and it just being a new told stories about his gospel songs singing and it was so beautiful to hear and to singing in this choir was i mean it was gorgeous. Totally makes sense that the origins of yes. That's what i was influenced by. Yeah i'm sure. Like i'll also was when he was a kid. You must've heard people singing that kind of music. It's not unusual. Your i guess. What was that thought of at the time it was popped. Was that post. Wasn't i saw. What what was it will be trade. We trade to song first of all called chills and fever Which was like a rocket guitar. Yeah rock sold type thing. And that's what peter sullivan. Who may record manager was thought. That's what i would get hit with. Right is also too but i could sing. Almost anything really which is sometimes is a is a is. I think it's an asset but people can put a label on you see.

She wanted to song for ninety. Ninety short already. Had a couple of number one records show. I did the demo. They sent her and that was so she said to ever sing it at god. Bless whoever sing and this is his well. I had to fight for this. Oh you know. I said excuse me you know after. I did the demo denmark street. I said that's it so they said what would it mean.

Yeah fair and so on. I didn't know that you got married at fifteen sixteen. Wow how did you feel like me. We were kids together in that. Same street outside the synagogue. Funny it out. It was after the war you see. They used to have An air raid shelter built in the middle of her street. You know with a concrete base and reinforced red brick building. That locals would go in there from their houses. So at least you don't be one. I don't know whether there's a good thing or bad thing. Because when the bombs were dropping we'd all be together. They have to know where everybody was. You know so they will come to you and then you go in this place. Which was in the street outside the synagogue. And we you know. We used to go into as children of course because they were dropping while we thought they would probably boswell. We were lucky in south. Wales cardiff bombed swansea. They bombed all the dock areas. But dan if you planes over ponti pre where. I come from the come into far. No the problem was. They couldn't get back to france where they were coming from german planes of course but they were coming from france should they couldn't get back with full lords so they'd have to drop the bombs that they didn't use because they missed letty to you. Think oh shit. They're gonna yeah. We're gonna drive. And i didn't know i was born in nineteen forty. I didn't know. I remember the noise. And the siren and everything you know but then it explained to me later on if you heard the plane come over then they think oh my god. They're going to drop it wherever they can. They get back so there was a problem. You see so. They had their big guns on the hills. You know we're on the valley's to in just in case if they come in to try and knock them out before they could unload so you and your wife would thin babies in this area gordon. Ninety four she was born in forty one. So when did you start going out. Belief when when shopping boyfriend and golf when they after the war they knock this shelter down and they kept the concrete slab. You know the big slab day. Well she used to play marbles on the concrete slab and i was walking with my friends because she lives in a different street to just round the corner really. But you'd have to go to your way off the main drag to go into the street where she lived where the synagogue was so as i was walking through i saw plane models and shared great lexi so multiplayer pero. She was given it. That would who is that. Like when i was nine ten. Only you know when you first start noticing girls in not as they become different things and the just a pain in the ass. You know you look at them in a different way so there she was playing model. So that's the first time. I was aware of her remember. She used to go to school and us protestant kids. I did anyway. I should look at the catholic girls and think wow exotic because they all wore earings. She was catholic. Kids are born and it is. It is pierce when the show. We thought that that was very exotic. As the protestant goes didn't. I'm that you know so. I remember seeing the catholic girls around there with these earrings. And you see. Didn't he used to have your appear. I did yeah yes and so you were already married when it's not unusual because i remember watching your ready steady. Go and this fantastic. You had hips lights. Snake hips fabulous. You won't be. You will the rob large for and you were real sexy and they were kind putting you forward. Is this sexy bloat with this fantastic. Baritone voice yes and no one knew you were married. I think the exactly. Yeah that kept it. Quiet kept quiet which they used to do like marriage whom i got. You know you be married because none of the young girls will buy the records. Was they thought right so you know. It was a front of the daily mirror. I remember seeing it after i had. It's not unusual number one. It went to very quickly then. Who only goes but tom. Jones is already married. And where did it go in the charts. After who stayed that it was no problem. Here was such a good. But i remember doing ready steady goal and i was talking to walk blue-sky and goes were looking through the glass the studio tom you know they were all like oh you know. But the general public thank god. It didn't didn't affect it but the the young girls were a bit upset. I want to know about the sixteen year old wedding. Like did you get a say on the choice of meal that you've had no because what what happened. The honest truth is my wife and myself really started going out probably in would've left school at fifteen which was fifty nine hundred fifty five. She was still in school because she was seven months younger than me. So i finished. I started working in a glove factory. She was still in school. So after i finish work i would go and you know she would just go to school. And we started going around the hills of south wales. You see One thing led to another started with. Kiss chase before you. Tb tb from. The time was twelve to fourteen two years. Yeah two years in in in the house held out yeah well. She was a blessing in disguise. Because they said whatever you do you can go down the coal mine. My father was a coal mine news. So i've knocked that out so it was a blessing in disguise because it stop now have become a coal miner but that stopped me so for two years after fifty to fifty four I was a bedroom. And i could see my wife. You know outside with going up the hills with kids playing because all the heads are all around. And i'm like. Oh my god and i remember feeling an ache in my chest you know. They say about heartache. Well i felt hoti. Obviously when i was twelve to thirteen of course like that but also through especially from thirteen to fourteen. When i get out of the house i was then moving around a bit. And i could see through the window going up the side of the thing you know a friend of mine. She used to keep a check on it. Because you knew. I liked the show. I should keep an eye on linda and make sure that she's right. Okay and so so when you had your wedding did you eat. Wait a minute okay. Sorry kiss channel. We talk about food. If i got kiss chase. Okay kiss jason. She said to realize. Because when i kissed would move kids it was something different so when we got married we had to have it done quickly because she was pregnant and by the time you know when the shit hit the fan tom by the kiss chase you quarter. Yes i caught a one under coscia so anyway we we started as young people do together but we fell in love. You see.

I talked to george wallace a few weeks ago. Yeah georgia's open my show exactly a lot of comics you open for like there would before comedy clubs. You would open for guys. Like you won't see i was in. I went to vegas in sixty eight. And i stopped. I stopped that ten years ago. But i was in. I played vegas more than sinatra. Did in terms of years so i mean i thought well you know i've done that was so in sixty eight. That's sort of like Like you you were one of the new guys and sixty eight. So there's a whole generation that had owned the place for a decade. Already right yes well Elvis presley came to see me sixty eight and he said. I've wanted to play vegas insa fifties. They didn't get him in the fifties right in vegas so we always wanted to get back into vegas. So he came to see me in sixty eight and said i feel that we have similar to what we do And then he came back and sixty nine but it was because he on my life he came to see me.

Yeah yeah yeah put make it a big show. Tell a few jokes. Well if if you if something happens and you needed humor so that in as well. But i never did a vegas show. It was the same show as i would do in new york or london. Whatever i got a band. And i do the songs you know. So i can send you like a personable guy. I mean you. Were you know when he did. The television shows variety show. You gotta do bits. You know you gotta act a little bit. You done a little your entertainer on some level. I mean you're a singer but as time went on you got other chops. Yes yes on sense. If you buy you see a. I've always believed in that if you have a natural sense of humor like who grant you know when you were talking him the it's like that's it. It's it's It's it's a lot easier to go on. You know with a smile on your face and sort of look at it like that rather than say the dishes. Cbs music sure. I don't want anybody. You know like this. No shit forever. Hager was always about fun. It seems with well anywhere from what i'm on stage. I love to do what i do on. Hopefully people are gonna get it. Yeah of course. Well they well. They no one's going. They're going like this guy. Tom jones one time at the beginning. They did not now. No one's wandering going. Who's new fella. No but like with elvis. So you guys stayed friends for a long time. Yeah oh yeah right from sixty five. When i first met him My first year in show business nineteen sixty five. I met him in los angeles. 'cause i did an ed sullivan show from la because It went to color sixty five. He went from black and white to color. And it couldn't transmit from new york so we had to do it from la so that gave me an opportunity then to go to l. a. And i met elvis on that trip in september sixty five and it was tremendous. Yeah will like you know. It sounds like you had a kind of a fund relationship and and you respected him and he got a kick out of you and you were like minded so i. I don't know if i've ever talked about this with anybody really. But i in terms of these friendships. But i mean you know as you see a guy like elvis kind of get insulated. Go into some sort of mental or emotional decliner substance abuse or whatever i mean. What do you do okay.

That was up my window. Wrote the song. So i wrote some things but not any of the big ones that i've had its with. It's very interesting. Time came up because it's like so it's not unusual. Hit what is that. Like sixty five sixty six. Yes sixty five exactly so that meet like you're right on the cusp of the whole thing. Changing right so yeah. So you have these you have a few hits and then all of a sudden thousand nine hundred sixty eight sixty seven everything the whole the whole idea of what pop. Music changes well It changed in in when the beatles came out. I mean they opened the dole because that was in Sixty four maybe four sixty four. Yeah when they went on the ed sullivan show. That was like big deal. You know knocked out of his president for a while but for you elvis being on the show. That was a big deal. Oh definitely i'm when i met elvis presley he said thank god few a really i. I said why is that. He said well. Because that's all we getting from. Britain normally are the beatles on the storm's other one cares you know didn't say one because he all these other joke ups. You know what i mean. He said you're you are being influenced by elvis presley. You know doing what. I i keep the london they said. Look that elvis presley macho shit went out the window. Who said that the record companies and they said it's the beatles you got to look like a ball you know you can't look like a man. Curly-haired doesn't work that busted nose. You got to get fixed. You know what i mean. I say you go fuck yourself. Look what i. I was singing in south wales right. I said cod if it's one hundred and sixty miles from london. You can't tell me that. English people that are different to welsh. People is not and Oh well it doesn't work doesn't work once i got they hit record. Of course he works. To- told you so what's funny because what it what what happened. Is you held onto the generation of people of men and women who who saw masculinity a certain way yes. Yeah like 'cause my dad used to think he looked like you for years. You know like there's a and also the elvis is interesting because the idea of one dude you know getting up there in front of a band that works for him and and delivering the goods in in a way that elvis elvis's takes that from the older crooners who were were a lot less dynamic in a way you got it from black gospel music. One of the first things he said to me was how come you sound influenced by the same people. I said. yeah black gospel music. He said yeah but are that any black people in ways as what wright jokes exactly so i said no the radio i listen to the radio and and that's what i've gotten it from. And because he said i was born there you know and he said i went to these black black gospel churches and you know loved what i was hearing and rhythm and blues you see. He was playing more black rhythm and blues records. Then he was white records right but it but it like stylistically. I can see that but it was still like you know it wasn't the band you know it wasn't like you know your no one was There was no know teeny boppers. You know Putting pictures up of What's his name guitar player for elvis. You know what i mean. Yes scotty moore scotty moore. There's no teeny boppers. Who are like scotty moore person. I don't love elvis but scotty he sucked up there in the front. You know in it. And that's it. And i remember when the beatles split up elvis system. He says he's outright. The beatles split up. I said yet this was like nineteen seventy right. Yeah we were in vegas and he said wow what a shame. I said yeah well. They've done some good music. he said. no. I'm not talking about that. He said i thought it would be great if we had them as backing band my life he said wouldn't it be great into a show. You know and have the beatles play for us you you could do some of us. I do some excel. 'cause my life and i said well i don't know whether that would happen even if they will you know if he was still together so okay so after you know It's not unusual. Then what's new pussycat is huge. Just like but then like you know what what struck me in reading about this stuff was there was a period there where you know. Obviously the cultural tastes were changing and and and i like. I didn't really think about the i. The the idea of of country hits like the idea of country music that you could come in. And it's the same way. Like ray charles in a way that exactly that there was a tolerance and also an embracing that if you sang the songs in a certain way the country songs the country fans will will accept you. Yes i see. A to black is they. Don't like listening to white country singers. And i can understand why his alien sound is. He thinks through the noses while they use anyway. So when ray charles did that first country album yeah. It was fantastic. But he heard in the songs more than just the way they would being delivered. He heard the the essence of the songs. Now that's what i do. Yeah so it's When i did the green green grass of home it was more. Like if ray charles had done it you know as opposed to the one of the country singer that did it. You know it was. It was a country. Hit before i got hold of it is but the country people like your version loved it. I heard jerry. Lee lewis c. He did album called country songs for city folk might bought it in the colony record shop. Nineteen sixty five in new york city in times square. I remember that place. Yeah yeah new record show. So i said you go to anything by jerry lee. They said well he's gone country. He's got this country album. I said up by it took it back to the hotel. Green green grass of home was on there and So that was it got back to england. I said i got to record this song. I like you just said you know my my recording manager pita sullivan at the time said well you wanna go county. I said no. I want to sink country songs. I don't necessarily want to country. So i tried once the green grass of warm. You see one side hit. Then he said well. We've opened a door here now..

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?
"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.

Lawsuits against Fortnite bring questions about the copyright of dances
"The lawsuit between pub g an EPA games. That's not the only legal headache. Epoch has had to endure. Thanks to this runaway. Success a fortnight one of those things that you can purchase in the game would be an Email or an action that you can choose your character to make based on a keystroke. So you might have emotes that are like a particular pose. But in fortnight, the emotes that are really famous are the various dances epic has created animations of numerous dances, some of which were already famous. Memes and therein lies the problem. Well, one of the problems the other problem is that there's some really Letitia folks out there who are hoping for a meal ticket. I think but there's fault on all sides. I would argue so one of the dances you can purchase. At least at one time was called fresh which was a nod to the source of this dance, the television show fresh prince of Bel-Air in that show. Alfonso Ribeiro who played the character Carlton did an iconic dance to Tom Jones's song. It's not unusual for night didn't lift the song. But it did lift the dance. And I'll Fonda has filed a lawsuit against the company claiming they're capitalizing on his celebrity and didn't give him any credit or compensation actor Donald phase on pointed to another instance in which epic games had included animation. That copied a dance he did in the television series, scrubs. Terrence two million Ferguson filed a lawsuit against epic games for. Using his Milly rock dance, Anita red acting on behalf of Russell backpack. Kid Horning filed a lawsuit because of the game using the floss dancing move, which Horning had made famous in an airing of Saturday night. Live Katy Perry was playing a song. And she threw a whole lot of focused toward Horning who then did the flaw stance. It went totally viral and became a huge Meemaw of itself. But here's the thing. He didn't invent that dance. You can just do a quick search on YouTube, and you will find there are lots of videos that well predate that Saturday Night Live performance one going all the way back to two thousand ten of people doing that dance. So my guess is that particular lawsuit won't go very far. Ultimately once they're able to show that this kid didn't create that dance. And that while that that particular Saturday Night Live episode might have elevated everyone's awareness of the flaw. Us. It. It's not like that kid has any claim to ownership of the dance. The cases, however, bring up a question can a dance become be righted. Can you copy write dance moves
