"That is insult. This has happened here. I think it happens to just about everybody, right? You send a text out. And you get a reply and the replies is not what you thought. You would get. And so you shoot back a sharp sort of text, but they are at the same time shooting an explanation of what they meant. And it wasn't what you thought. So now yours is on the way, but they've already sent something, so it's a late text. So you might do something like Mary might send out a text to me. Sorry, I was with my girlfriends all weekend and didn't pay much attention to you. And I send back yeah, I was kind of alone, and it was really boring, wish I had done, and I send it out, but before she gets that, she sent out a text to me saying, and I just bought you a new sport jacket so that, you know, I can make it up to you. But you've sent back an aggressive thing that makes you look like or in my case me a tool. Right? You've missed the nuance of what she said. And you can't take that text back. It's already gone. And so you wish you didn't have that in the air and you just can not get it back. Do you know what I'm saying? I do know what you're saying. That would be, so you're going off just really half cocked. You're going off half cocked or you're saying something that you don't have the complete understanding. She send it, sending you a second part of it. But it got caught. And you were too fast sending the other one back, so the total explanation did not come. So then she gets that after she just says she did something nice for you. And yeah, she gets that after she's already sent something nice and it looks like you don't even care about that. You don't care about the sport. It's a big baby. 'cause you're a big baby, you're Nas. And you set that back. Then you got to go back on and go, oh. Wow, I got a new jacket or something. I didn't mean to sound so aggressive. Wow, a new jacket so nice. Thank you so much. I didn't have that bad a weekend, even though you were with your girlfriends. Love you. And you send that. And then you wait. Now maybe she had to go off and do something. But if you don't get anything back after that, now it's like, now it's the silent treatment. Now it's the silent tree, oh my God, the silent tree in the silent tree. Now you're going, I love you so much. I love you. You mean so much to me. And now you're sending that one. That wasn't enough, or maybe it was too much. I was, I was kind of lonely, though. It was now you look like a crazy. It looked like you're just out of your mind. Then she finally comes back because she was, you know, with a client or something, she goes, oh my God. This man is this man is having a nervous breakdown. Or maybe it's just me. No, I think. Are there other people that have had that? I think I understand. You didn't sound like you understood. You know what's interesting about you? What? You think too much? I do. Like seldom seldom about the things that would benefit from some extra thought. I know. You don't have a teacher from kindergarten to 12th grade that would say, oh yes, Bobby, he thinks too much. But in every other corner of his life, you just think and think and think. Yeah. Show me one teacher with that. Oh, that one. Yep, that's a deep thinker there. The bob and sherry store is restocked with the book cooking with cats. Sherry lynch's cookbook with great recipes and pictures of course of lots of cats. He's a man's meat. And now available, the book of bob. That makes me so happy. Sherry has written down bob's proclamations and witticisms over the years. Really? And now, in book form, I'm fabulous. But it's not available any place, but at the bobbin sherry store. I am sorry for lumen. It bob and cherry dot com. Sign up for our newsletter, we never spam you. Never did get bobbin cherry exclusives just go to bob and sherry dot com is starring in bullet train, his costar is Sandra Bullock, and evidently they have been really good friends for a long, long time. And he was interviewed by British Vogue for bullet train. And he said, you know, we had a RomCom, all set to go. And I thought it was going to be a big hit, but we couldn't get it made. You want to hear what the concept was for the Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock RomCom. I do, yeah. We tried to develop an idea of a husband and wife team who were QVC's most successful salespeople, but we're getting a divorce. We hate each other and we're taking it out on air as we sell things. And that's as far as we got. How in the world did that not get made? How do you not get made? The concept is so funny. It's so broad, even if you don't buy anything from QVC, which I don't. I still know what the deal is. I know what the pitch is. I know what those people sound like. And who would be better than those two being the top salespeople on QVC. Their charming and their beautiful. And now they're handling it. Can you just not see her with it like ginsu knives? Yes. You know, well, thank you very much, Tom. Sharpening. Boy, I'd like to get this as sharp as I can get it. I think it would be hysterical. Somebody in Hollywood is going to see this. Where did I see this? I saw this NBC. Somebody's going to see that they're going to make that with those two. I think it would be a hysterical. How did that movie maybe they just never got past the initial idea and didn't get a script? Because if you're a movie studio, and it's Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock, playing battling exes on a home shopping network. How do you not say yes to that movie? So you got the concept. I mean, you know how I pitch every once in a while we'll be talking about something and I'll say, will that be a great movie? And this person should be in it in that person. That's what they were doing. They just somehow, one of them was watching QVC or passed by and said, oh, look at those two on there. I bet they hate each other. And then you've got a concept. All you'd have to do, I mean, I'm making it sound easier than it probably is. But basically, all you'd have to do is talk to a movie head and say, I've got Sandra. And she's ready to join me in this movie. Brad Pitt saying that, but we only have a concept. Do you think you might be able to find some funny writers in Hollywood that

"tom sharpen" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"He has a new record out called God save the animals, which I really like. I love the new built spill record when the wind forgets your name. I mean, it might not come as a shocker to anybody who has heard our music that builds spill as a huge influence on us. I'm a big fan of the sky, McKay, I'm a craven, it's kind of like a jazz drummer. He's got a new record called in these times. And as a band, we are currently obsessed. I've always been somewhat obsessed, but now we are collectively obsessed with credence, Clearwater revival after watching the new Netflix live at Royal Albert Hall on the bus a couple of days ago and just I can't take credit for this observation. My friend Tom sharpen once called creedence Clearwater revival, America's Beatles. And I would completely sign on with that. I've never I never do not want to listen to the creed. One more question about the music on here. There's a lot of vocal filters and vocal effects, not on every song, but on some. And I wonder how you decide when you want to use something like that, because there are a lot of songs solo songs, death cap songs where it's very stripped down, and it's just you and an acoustic guitar at times. And here I wouldn't say that the vocals are ever buried in the mix and you're abandoned that I think has great lyrics and is known for great lyrics and you want those to actually be intelligible, unlike a lot of bands that make it hard to hear the words, but how do you decide I don't want this just to be pure unvarnished gibbard I want to add a little bit of fuzz or a little bit of something or other. But a lot of those calls were made by producer John congleton when he was mixing the record. But I had specifically told him at some point that he could be as liberal as he wanted to be with vocal effects. So long as we were not leaning into kind of trendy gimmicky effects that have made a perfect example is kind of doing a stylized auto tuning of all the backing vocals or whatever that is kind of seemingly a thing that I think Bon Iver kind of popularized, but has become kind of a trope. I mean, it was a very amazing innovation, but I think it's been used a little bit too much. It's kind of we are serious artists and make weird music kind of stand in thing. So as long as we weren't as long as John was in dipping in to kind of played out production tricks, I was totally fine with it. So I think in a lot of cases it really really served the songs and had the tone of the songs. Well, I wanted to mention this to you because how often do you get the chance to tell the person who wrote a song that is constantly stuck in your head that that is the case. But you have a song on your solo album, which I like a lot called Duncan, where have you gone? And I don't know if this is high in the Ben gibbard canon, but I have a dachshund named grumpy, which is a George R. R. Martin, mythical creature, and because grumpy sounds like Duncan, I'm constantly just singing Duncan, where have you gone with substituted in for Duncan so that whenever I can't find her, I will start singing. That song with her name in there. So I guess that just goes to show that you put these things out into the world and you never know how they're going to be received or if people will just change the name to their dog's name and sing it to their dog instead. Well, there's a really great William Gibson quote that kind of paraphrasing here. But it's something along the lines. He was talking about his books. And people were asking about years after his big trilogy, the necromancer trilogy came out. If he recognized what it was like to have this kind of body of work that was out in the world and it was influencing the culture, however it did. And he said something along the lines of, well, you know, my books are kind of like, I feel like they're my adult children who go off into the world and have great adventures. And I feel very similar about our records and my songs. It's like you put them out very rarely do you expect anything grandiose coming back from them or I should say hardly ever if ever. But it does feel as if once you release music, it no longer belongs to you, at least in the kind of pop culture sense. Right. It belongs to my dachshund, specifically. Along to your doctor now, yes, your dachshund now owns Duncan where have you gone? I believe he can register with BMI ASCAP and collect some whatever performance royalties might be coming from. Yes. Great. All right. Well, we will let you go, you're a busy man, you're on the road. I've heard that it's a difficult to get tour buses these days that with so many people touring and supply chain and who knows what that tour bus prices have skyrocketed. But I hope that you have managed to secure one and that you're traveling in style and that at least you have a TV in the bus if you finish your show while the Mariners are still on. We do in fact, we have been in good standing with the bus companies for some years. So the buses, we're all very nice guys and the buses tend to show up in the same state that they were released to us. But yeah, I mean, to your point, it is everybody is on tour right now. Mostly because people are understandably wanting to go and promote their albums that they put out in 2020 or 2021. So there's a lot of traffic, a lot of competition for consumer dollars when it comes to going to show. So I mean, we just feel we just feel very fortunate that people are coming to the shows and they seem to be having a good time and we're able to get from city to city in one piece. Yeah, at some point during the pandemic, I was talking with Nick our bass player. And you know, he said something along the lines of, you know, I'm never going to take for granted a Sunday show in film a blank quaternary American market ever again. I'm just going to be very, very glad to be there. And that's certainly been the case on this tour so far. It just feels it feels just really wonderful to get back to doing this thing that we love so much and that we weren't we weren't sure was not so much ever going to come back, but that touring indie rock was kind of it wasn't necessarily an essential service or at least not for the general public. So we kind of felt this would be one of the last industries to come back and it was. But you can just really see it in the faces of people coming to shows now. People just are really enjoying congregating and mass and listening to live music again. And hopefully we can continue to do it. Hopefully we don't end up with variant Z that this one it's your face after you breathe it in. Hopefully we can hopefully hopefully the worst of it is over, but even as we say that you're never quite sure. Well, speaking of which there's a verse on one of the new songs here to forever that goes, oh, these days it's so hard to relax. You gotta hold a gun to my back to make me smile and the only way I seem to cope is by trying to hold on to hope if just for a while. I'm sure that's not about watching the Mariners, but sounds like it probably applies to watching the Mariners over the next week or two or however long they last, so good luck to you holding on to hope in getting to experience some of a probable Mariners playoff run. I appreciate you staying probable. I would like to hope that you guys are experts in this field and that you know you know much more about all of this than I do and that you're confidence that I can take even just like a smidgen of your confidence that I will be watching an actual playoff game with my Seattle Mariners within the next ten days. So we'll see. If playoff ads can underestimate the guardians, I guess they can overestimate the Mariners too, but 99.8. You feel pretty good about that.

"I'm tom sharpen tier government relations director. And one of your hosts across actually at the other table. I'm chris henry. I'm the museum programs coordinator here and Tom it's it's i should put on a t-shirt at this At this time I always say i love. Green dot episodes will get to talk to cool people and have amazing guests and today we certainly have an amazing guest. Joining us is colonel. Kim campbell Us air force eight ten pilot can thank you so much for joining us absolutely. Thanks for having me well and it's a it's a question that i think we always like to ask our. I guess as well. Because i think any time we asked this question. You always hear a unique and interesting story. And that's what i inspired. You wanna fly. It has a unique story. I think When i was in the fifth grade so long time ago I watched the challenger accident and that may seem a bit ironic to some people that that would get me interested in aviation. But i think what i realized in that moment was that the astronauts died doing something that they believed in something that they felt was important to them and something that was bigger than themselves and so at that moment. I thought that was exactly what i wanted to do. Is to go out and be an astronaut and so then that led me to the path of aviation really just to figure out how to get into the astronaut program and so i talked to my parents i talked to mentors and teachers and what i was told was that most of the astronauts said gone to the air force and were pilots. So that was exactly what i wanted to do. And i decided in fifth grade that i was going to be a fighter pilot and go to the air force academy and Ideally go on to be an astronaut. You know. I think it's really. I think it's really special away that you know when we hear about the challenger accident of course It brings up a lot of bad feelings. But i think the crew of that shuttle would be thrilled to know that there lies inspired people absolutely and i know i'm not the only one i think inspired a lot of young women particularly to go after their dreams and find something that was important to them to commit their lives to. And that's exactly what it did for me and it really just flip a switch for me. When i decided that that was my goal and path that i wanted to take everything changed so obviously any path and aviation particularly one is as challenging as As as flying for the military has challenges along the way what we're what were the some some of those challenges that you faced On your on your path and aviation there are a few of them Probably the toughest one for me was just getting into the air force academy which was the path that i wanted to take to become a pilot and my first attempt at getting into the air force academy i mean i i worked so hard to get in there and and Had done a lot of things in school to help me prepare..

Is that correct state. Big food state big food stink love it jimmy favorites that make you think a home or the the i always like The pizza pies or always great and you can throw a rock and hit a place. That's kind of better than anywhere else. There's there's a big movement to say that like like jersey. Has the best pie online. Recently in reading people tweeting. Something like tweeting about this word. Jersey is overlooked in the in the in the pizza. Wars because it's kinetic kit and the new york are the two big ones that people always talk about and then people in jersey are like we have we have the best pizza in the world. No one and no one gives us the credit for it. Yeah i know. There's a lot of people who think that when you say new york pizza you're talking about the tristate area basically but i think there are slight variants and i i liked. New jersey has tomato pie a lot of places lower in the state where it's just very simple and very pure kind of pizza and it's just. It's not encumbered by toppings. That i Miss a little bit. And then i miss a lot i miss wa wa is what i miss. Wow why everyone loves wa wa. We had we had were in philadelphia. And i will say. I got some some delightful sandwiches from that spot and i also just liked. The idea of a convenience store has like fresh made sandwiches. Like that's like a fun concept. Yeah with the touch screen and you go and you press the buttons union at the talk to the people you just say they say a number and then you hand them a piece of paper and beginning and end of. Wow i feel like i've always been a seven eleven defender and then you just realize how much seven eleven sucks comparatively like sure. I was in seven eleven last night to pick up some some for double and To our hatchet man maybe. We'll maybe we'll bleep that out. But i but it was that sort of thing like oh men with wa wa at like one in the morning you can just get like a good buffalo chicken sub if you wanna and made and it's fresh evidence seven eleven just fucking it sucks. What can look like. When i was young and when i was young and drunk like literally like sixteen years old i get like a bakery stick at a like a like one of the rollers at seven eleven and i eat that stuff and i and i liked it then but all. That shit is pew. It's just sits there for so long. It's seven eleven is truly awful. Yeah it's a dice roll if like that the gogo takito or the wings or the pizza has has been fresh made within the past couple of hours but a lot of times something. That's sitting there all day. It's it's not at all the same thing and also say even compared to the actual sub chains like a wawa ab a convenience store aspect aside awad just destroys like a subway. Like it's so much better. It's a totally different here. Yeah not even close. It's it's just the stuff is good and it's fresh. It's not like seven eleven and we get to watch the truck pull up you ever seen the at like two in the morning the truck and they're just like wheeling all the things in and then it's just like but that's not good enough the trucks they're gonna sit for a while they don't roll it out onto the floor. They put it in the back like the donuts and things. I sadly always there when the truck pulls up like me and the truck seven eleven with the truck feel like yeah they lower that skit off the back.

"Tom sharpening. Welcome back to. I am happy to have you on the show off. Thanks for having me jesse a we. We have known each other for twenty years ash. Yeah and i did not know that your surname is not sharply at least the surname. That's on your. Id card is not the biggest revelation in the book. But it's the one that surprised me. The most yet seems to rattle few people did you. I wanna talk about why you picked a new name in this symbolic meaning of that and so on and so forth but like for right. Now i wanna ask. Did you choose not really to tell people that it was a performing name. I know some people knew but like yeah some people know but it was. It just was a thing. It's a thing that started. When i was eighteen and then it grew and grew and then i added more than i didn't have it so it just made sense and that's how everybody knew me anyway. It helped me through. It helped me navigate my own self out of situations In terms of just kind of trying to be able to cope with where. I was at in life and move forward. It was necessary and then it just kind of became just kind of worked and there was just they was just there and and i just. That's how everybody knew me so it wasn't a big deal but it was a big deal to me simultaneously. I didn't care and i cared. Why did you choose a name. That wasn't your birth name in the first place. Oh because i was recovering from some pretty severe mental issues and bouts of stuff with that. That was pretty extreme to where it just made Things hard to to kind of carry that baggage. So i just wanted a chance to not carry that baggage and that was that was a fast track to not carrying that baggage to just kind of get to be somebody else like a variant on myself so it was. It was crucial to me. Actually and it helped a lot. And i'm glad i did it. Do you remember when you decided to do it. Yeah like eighteen ish. Eighteen around there eighteen nineteen And it started. Because i was just getting mail at At home and doing kind of music things tape trading and things like that and ordering records. And i kinda just wanted stuff to be differentiated from my father. Who had the same same name so just kind of was a little bit of a little bit of a break from Yeah it was That's where it started. And then i started a fanzine and kept it for the fanzine and then it just grew from there. Comedy writer or radio host ultimately did wanna be on radio but i didn't have the access to it yet. I mean i always loved radio and but but again radio was either huge. Fm stations in new york for me or it was Like left of the dial college stuff and that's for students that's those were not. I was not a student at any of these school. So wasn't an option and the station. That was different than both of those two places was. Wfan mu which was extensively at college station was a part of a school called uppsala that went out of business and thankfully the The people running the station bought the license before the school went out. Because that would have probably been one of the That would have been when the bigger ticket items at the school could have just sold off to whatever christian broadcasting because they just by those things up. They were by at that point in the early nineties. They would just snap those those. Those gold to just have stations and have spots on the dial So thankfully wfan mu kept existing and was a station kind of staffed by not by students. Nobody fried i think they would have a few slots for upsala college students on their just almost like as a gesture but the but the the purpose of the station was driven by non students and these were adult running that Running the station and doing shows so they were from. That was literally the only station. And i got on that station. That was a minor miracle. I wanna talk about the stuff that you went through as a kid and a teenager in a minute but I was happy to read your description of feeling at home. When you sat down behind a mic for the first time that maybe it was something that really was something that you could create from it really writing this book and looking back and kind of charting out the story and kind of sorting through figuring out. What's the order of things. And how did this lead to this. Which led to that and that whether that it really dawned on me that that was such a powerful moment. That is some got some kind of voice when i did that and it was kind of immediate and i was immediately hooked on it. It was funny because it almost felt like the writing in the book it was like it was the cornyist moment in the whole thing. Because it's like it's like movie stuff when somebody.

We're reviewing seen great white overall thoughts. This movie was better than i thought it was gonna be as a competently made. Yes for the most part. This wasn't trash but they're not trashy parts about it. Sure it's interesting. This movie was kind of like a horizon line meets. Shallows meets like open water. I was shockingly engaged. Even when they were designing forever and ever and there was there was a period of time in the middle when it got it slowed down. But i was shockingly engaged with like i thought the plot was bad but like so much better. Then these other shitty boring like like forty seven meters down for instance. My boyfriend is sucks. Let's go on a shark dive and then we're stuck there. You know what i mean like. There's something interesting going on but it was pretty good. I would say the only thing that i really disliked about. It was that really dragged in the middle when they were just floating for days. Yeah it could've been trimmed by five ten minutes and it would have been my jeter. I always like when the sharks are like vindictive and manipulative emotionally. Because that's right every time. The shark showed up by laughed like whenever the shark was there was a comedy and whenever the shark was not there. It was like a minimalist drama. I would say you fully watch go shudder. You can watch. It's an hour and a half the fun time. it doesn't drag a little bit like it. Drags the little. The conclusion i came to its full watchable and there are moments that are really stupid and fun and there were parts that i was genuinely engaged with. So if you like shark movies you could watch it. Yeah cheers thank you. Everybody and that is our show. Remember the rate review. It helps it. Actually really really helps visit us on twitter and facebook and i g and make sure you check out me this weekend in la. If you're there for largo three amazing guests they will blow your mind.

Go i don't know if it's the kids table. If i just rate my own table you know that could be yeah. It may actually be slightly higher than the other table. Yeah and it does force us to look up to you. Know so interesting Departure of an episode. Today guys. we're gonna do Rather than having an external guest join us we're going to rely on Our own experiences of three of us around the table.

I can't wait it actually. It just feels right. Doesn't it that this is happening. You felt kind of weird with anything not happening ice year. Oh my gosh.

I did not miss last year. Was all the stress of getting ready. Fair venture As we record this were seventeen days out and we're all Freaking out a little bit but once the curtain actually goes up and we and and We're we're all off and running with adventure.

How Did This Get Made?
"tom sharpen" Discussed on How Did This Get Made?
"Now and now it's like non every you're gonna be blown away. She is like. I literally was watching it being like. Oh this is just unquestionably one of the greatest living actors currently doing something that is so electric to watch to watch her acting against a young actor whose name is hannah. I'm binder who is lorraine newman's daughter and this is her first acting job so it is literally a two hander between this young new actor and jean smart who is just incredible and the chemistry between them is electric. Jokes are great. And it's a fucking great show. It's about Jean smart is a kind of old school. Joan rivers. Phyllis diller style comedian. Who's doing a residency in vegas. Telling kind of her same old jokes and this young comedy writer comes into her world and completely kind of up they both kind of upset each other's kind of paradigm and it is. It's terrific. it's really funny. Incredibly kind of well acted and beautiful. I really dug it. I think it's worth watching and it's and it's a half hour and it's great you know what's interesting about that is i have a friend who was that for. Joan rivers tristan. Yes and so. She had written a post the other day she was like i am really nervous to watch his show because it has nothing to do with me but i feel like such a connection to this world and she said you know truthfully she's like i like it captured a one hundred percent in my experience. I mean obviously there are differences. But she's it was interesting to see like how they could capture that so well knowing that that's not really the trajectory of either one of their of any of their careers interesting. It just speaks to like how. How few like significant female. Comedians come out of that era that both hacks and marvelous mrs mazel are thought to be riffs on. Joan rivers is sent. You know without being joan rivers you know it just. It really speaks to the fact that at that time there really just were not many other women. Doing stand up comedy and so you can't help but look to joan rivers as the model or as kind of urge text for that era of of of women doing stand up. Yeah you know i. It's fine that there was. Phyllis diller and not just not to take anything away from from women who were doing. Stand up at that time percent. Yeah no i mean. I think it's a fun. I love those people. I love what they do. And i'm that is next on my list to watch that. I would say otherwise that i think are absolutely fantastic. I mentioned one of them on the main show. Recently we are lady parts which is Nita mansouri show from a british show. It's incredible it's a sitcom and it is like the the kind of loose setup. It is a group of young women in the muslim community in london who form punk rock band and he watches show. I gotta go talk fucking good. I have to get. This is where i need. I you know is is incredibly funny. Incredibly sweet and heartbreaking. It's all about them and their families and what it means to what it means to do this in the face of a community or family that might not accept or understand why they're choosing to do this in for some of the music is considered forbidden. It is really like it's an incredibly compelling show that also has hard jokes and great musical numbers it is. it's i think there's only six episodes but or maybe eight. I think it was only six but they are wonderful and just acted brilliantly. Ooh this is all good. You know speaking of music. And so that i just read a great book. Who from our friend. Tom sharpening oh yeah. It never ends. And if you don't tom was on our show he did the avengers episode. Which is the refines. Yoma thermo one and tom Hosts this show called the best show in. Wmu no longer wmu. It's now just at the best show podcast and kind of. I think one of the pioneers of doing this audio comedy. That this new wave of audio communist podcasts like you know he kinda came up the way that marc maron was on that radio station. Tom was also doing this kind of bang. Bang comedy bang. Bang started as a radio show as well. Yes and but tom and mark had been doing it for like. Oh i'm wild before totally. Yes and and so. Tom is a writer for monk or was a writer for monk. But if you've never heard of sharply and worcester. I i'll do yourself a favor. It's some of the funniest two person. Comedy stuff audio comedy stuff like you can get it on spotify. It's great gas station. Dogs is an album that you should probably start with and it will. It's so so funny. They're amazing but he wrote this book. That is a wonderful. I don't wanna spoil too much of it. But it's kind of writing and how he got his how he kind of fell into it and everything from writing on like from slam magazine all the way to monk and then writing bigger films and and things like that but there is a chapter in it. That made me laugh so much. Because he's such a good music guy and when you show he'd have. These great bands turned me on to so many different people. Well jon wurster. Who does his. Who does as you mentioned john. Lewis who's who does a lot of stuff with sharp ling is the is. A drummer is a prolific drummer. Was the drummer in superchunk guessing. Time in a number of other bands and so they have a great partnership in this. But there's a chapter in this book. I read the whole thing in like really like two days. Because thomas can you read it. And and i felt pressure that if i didn't read it right away i wouldn't read it then i didn't want to feel like i'm taking too long with so i just like our i down this book and it was so fun to read. But there's a chapter in it about how he trying to figure out how he fits into this world of entertainment and he wants to get any trying to doing he auditions for the new monkeys and the story about trying to get into the new mile. Is it's early on in the book and it's really really great. But if you're a fan of tom or you're a fan of best show. I will say that as a friend of tom A true friend of tom. Just a sponsor of time..
