"Happy were feeling great about the world. I think I think it and you saw it in the documentary too. I think he really struggled and felt a lot of pain about you. Know he was very aware aware of the hardest parts of life. You know he didn't shy away on his show from things like death divorce assassination. I mean he talked about really heavy subject subject matter and he tried to give kids safe ways to cope with these really difficult subjects And I I've found Matt to be a character that's really fascinating. Somebody who is in many ways like a vessel. WHO's holding the pain of all the people that he meets? You know we would talk to people and say you would talk to the people closest to him his wife Joanne. You'd say did he tell you about all of the people who had come to him with their problems and heaped their problems on him and she'd okay no he. He didn't really talk to me about other people's issues. Maybe you should ask bill. I wonder if he talked to bill about it. And we'd go to bill. Isler and say did did Fred Talk to you about an. You'd say no you should ask you. Yeah and I bet he talked to her about it. The truth is he held people's stories. He he was this conduit this vessel for other the people and their their problems and he I think he really held them internally and we tried to allude to that he's like a priest or a senator or something I guess it kind of absorb everybody else's name such an opposition to be into June. Tom Hanks specifically talk about that. We yeah we did. We talked about. We talked a a lot about Sort of Fred spiritual energy and what that does to a person's physical body and what it is to be such a receiver fever much. I think a lot of us spend our time kind of like putting our energy out into the world And frankly even Tom Hanks like he's a really funny funny. Charismatic Guy who's energy kind of flows out from him. He's really magnetic really charismatic. He's fun to be around. He's funny he sarcastic. Fred was more more absorbing you know. He kind of was dislike open being who was not necessarily out putting all this manic energy eighty but who was very still and was sort of letting other people's energy absorbed into him so that was sort of our jumping off point for the the character and the physical ization of the character but it was really like an energy shift that Tom had to embody for this character. Did you rehearse we did okay so you saw him. Because it's a transformation but not an imitation exactly that was always the intention we talked early on about not wanting this to be an snl sketch of Mister Rogers. Rogers which is why we didn't do any prosthetics. We weren't trying to get his walk perfectly. You know it wasn't about an imitation because to me that was actually going to become a barrier between the audience and Mister Rogers. We needed them to feel like he was right in front of their noses. The way you felt when you watch the original program you felt like he was talking directly to who you there was no space between you and him and so that was the the intention was to create that same feeling and if it felt like if you you were aware of him doing an imitation it would create a distance between us is an audience and him as a performer so We we worked and talked talked early on really a lot about the same things that Mr Rogers would do to connect You know he talked about how he viewed the space between himself and the children watching as sacred space between the television and the child and that when he would found the program he would try to to imagine one child whose is he was looking into so I was constantly reminding Tom of that concept and we were really trying to kind of click into that Fred Rogers energy. I think you got it. I I love how you've integrated the kind of neighborhood show making into into the film. was that on the page. That's something that you created around the story. It was on the page conceptually but of course just trying to figure out how to make that actually happen and work and integrate with the story was a real fun challenge. How did you do that So we always. He's had this idea that the movie was essentially a large episode of Mister Rogers for adults. And there's this wonderful device of framing the entire movie as a big episode. The the fell out of the program But it meant taking Mister Rogers neighborhood and going further. So we used the rules of Mister Rogers neighborhood and tried to use those rules for the entire filmmaking roles which meant we didn't want to go see G or like nick too flashy or too slick. There was a handmade quality to the show. There was something about the miniatures and the way the program was made that felt so low oh fi but therefore felt so nostalgic to us who grew up with the program so for example. You know we start the show. We start the movie with the exact exact same miniature that we're used to seeing from Mister Rogers neighborhood and as we pull out from his miniature neighborhood we boomed up but we did it all practically we boom up to see all of Pittsburgh and then pan over to see all of New York City and very practically had lights come on but it's all a miniature version of the world so it was sort of like we took look at that miniature sequence took us so many months to conceptualize and figure out and then build Because we really didn't want to be breaking the rules of if Mr Rogers and you know the original concept in the script kind of had it like zooming out and showing all the East Coast and doing things that felt like they weren't sticking within the rules of the world so it took us a long time to kind of figure out me jody. Life's who's our wonderful cinematographer and our team of people who built all these miniatures to figure out the emotion behind into these decisions these creative decisions and how they could work in integrate with the story. It's it's really effective and really intimate the whole time. which is that was the hope not? That's something you would necessarily expect interested in the characters that you're interested in. I feel like they're all kind of fascinated or tortured by a certain kind of taboo. When that's Sexuality Party or Artistic Credit Year parental absence these things that are sort of in the culture and in our lives all the time but that people feel a little uncomfortable talking about? Yeah Yeah what. What draws you to people like that? Who Sort of say something that you wouldn't and I think even in a way Mr Rogers even the Loyd I think is the version in this film is to Rogers is is talking about decency all the time? Yeah just something that we we have a kind of a hard time accepting as what we should do we do. Yeah I I mean I think like everybody. I'm GonNa Spend my whole life struggling with what it means to be a good person and what it means to be an artist and what it means to be somebody trying to live within the world and have relationships. It's with people and I am drawn to characters. I think who are sharing something really intimate about their own struggles And it has to be something I can relate to so you know I felt with diarrhea. The teenage girl. I felt like I was many in so many ways. Even Yeah No. It wasn't my story. I didn't have an affair with my mother's boyfriend when I was fifteen or anything. But as a sexual young fifteen-year-old I felt really conflicted about what that meant for myself. In the world I felt confused about how it would be viewed. I felt like I was misunderstood so many things about her as an artist I felt like I related to and I felt all those struggles. She felt as a teenage girl. In what what those meant and who I wanted to be within the world and so so for whatever reason I just I I loved her and I felt the same way about Lee and Jack also the characters. Can you ever forgive me. These were characters characters who you know. I think every artist is probably afraid deep down somewhere that their fate will end up like lease their their biggest. All of our biggest is fear is that will end up sort of alone in a room not able to do our art and nobody will care and I mean that's the right. That's the artists fear. That's true existential. L. Drug yes and we all have that and I think you know as freelance artists. Everybody is constantly were. All scared will never work again. And Yeah that you'll you'll end up where nobody knows who you are in cares and you can't even do your work and your alone and you've somehow your own mind has pushed everybody else away. I mean to me. That's an incredibly incredibly relatable. Fear do you feel like a freelance artist. That's an I've never heard of filmmaker described himself. That that's what I am. Yeah I mean that's interesting. That's the job bright. You're you're always looking for what the next thing will be and You know I think I'm getting to a point where I'm no longer afraid then. I'll never work again but you spend a lot of years. I mean I waited tables for fifteen years like you spend a long time thinking you'll never work again. One creative job does not necessarily early always lead to the next creative job. Help me understand the kind of the trajectory of your career because because waiting tables for fifteen years just to well that's intense and that's that's scary and not so bad but you'd you stuck to it and you. I assumed I guess this wasn't exactly what you doing. It's an actor so I went to theater school goal. I went to UCLA. That's where my husband. Norma we've been together since we were I since right when I turned twenty So twenty years ago and and Yeah I got out of school theater school thinking like I was going to be a real freelance theatre actor like I worked in many theaters around California Kind of doing regional work doing Shakespeare doing like plays. I'd go on unemployment in between plays. That's how actor survive. And then at some. When I started to get frustrated with the types of roles I was being offered being like in my twenties young woman who I felt like I was like bursting eighteen with creativity and depth and all I was getting was really one dimensional characters and it was making me nuts and so when I read the book the diary of a teenage girl was based on? I was like this is a character. This is a real complete complex girl. When was up I WANNA say it was.

"I'm shawn fantasy commanded ave and this is the big picture a conversation show about being a good neighbor today. We turn our attention to Tom. Hanks and the new film a Beautiful Day in the neighborhood later in the show. We'll have a conversation precision with Mario Heller. The gifted filmmaker diary of a teenage girl. Can you ever forgive me. And this true life story of Mister Rogers sort of and the journalists with whom he crossed paths but first let's go to today's as news. Amanda The Independent Spirit Award. Nominations have been announced. Yes they have. Is that exciting to you. Sure I love independent films. I love independent films as well. I Love Award shows. This is a useful award show I would say not. Because I don't think it particularly dictates where the Oscars are going but it might dictate where they're not going If we look back at last year's winners we can see a lot of great films getting rewarded. In particular if Beale street could talk for example or Richard E grant or Bow Burnham or Nicole halif center and Jeff Whitty Bunch people who didn't win any Oscars. I thought you're going to add guy and they're also Glenn close a very good note star of the wife of film we've seen and this year's set of nominations I think is very interesting. There's a lot of takeaways. What was your instant reaction upon seeing this I? I'm excited for marriage story. Three and I was briefly concerned about the the rules of the pendant. Spirit awards because like marriage is nominated for best feature and it is winning the Robert Altman Award for best ensemble. But because it wins the award for Best Ensemble it means that Adam driver and Scarlett Johansson are not in the best actor and best actress categories and. I didn't understand those rules immediately so I looked at best actor and best actress and I didn't see Adam driver and Scarlett Johansson in particular Adam driver. I was I was concerned. It's it's a reasonable concern. especially if you look back at last year's Robert Altman award winner which was suspended. Do you remember when Luca Guadagno followed up his his his triumph off with Timothy. Shallow may with remake of Dario Gento superior. That was very strange. I remember that it happened. It's happened I love Luca. Hope he makes more films. SPURIA was an odd odd one. I guess it's hard to say whether this is great or not. Great for marriage story It's obviously still nominated for best feature as you said and I think one of the three sort of heavyweights entering entering the Oscar. Race the other nominees for best feature are pretty fascinating. I think the only one that is that is here that we could reasonably say has a strong chance if that at best picture is the farewell. Yes the rest of the sleet. Here is uncut gems which had a great many nominations here in this category. and I wonder if uncut gems is ultimately bound to be a spirit champion. It's very much. It's not so much an Oscar movie but it feels like it has a a good opportunity to run the table on this show. Yes certainly in the ringer. The university the university is part of the ringer unit or the time line. Yes yeah truly. A hidden life is another film this year. Terrence Malick new movie which has gone largely unremarked upon in the awards conversation thus far which is interesting. I also don't understand how Fox searchlight movies continue to get nominated for the independent spirit awards because they are now owned by Disney. But that's a whole other conversation. I guess it was acquired seeking to be the case it was financed independently. Anyway and clemency. which was a movie that is opening in late December that we have not spend in a lot of time talking about here on this show? That starts Al Woodard. I think you have noted previously that because of that late release date it may hold back some of it's award season chances. Yes oh I believe. There's a lot of talk around Alfred Performance and clemency and she is nominated for best female lead here and I think it's easier for a late breaking performance actor or actress to break into the category than it is a movie itself. I agree Let's look at some surprises and snubs. Here I was very surprised to see so so much love for honey boy in the lighthouse to movies. I like Two movies we've talked about here on this show. I guess they're pretty spiracy. Yeah I will the Lighthouse House. I'm surprised that you're surprised. Because that. Seems to be a like the indy indy. Favorite the the twenty four merch. Bro Loves the lighthouse. Yeah but that's not necessarily where the spirits go. That's sometimes I l if Beale street could talk I would not say necessarily the home of the eight hundred thousand four merged bro. That's true I just feel like and that is also doing it. A service of the lighthouse. which again was it was fascinating thing to me? Not For me but I there are a lot of. It's obviously a feat of filmmaking and cinematography in particular and there are a lot of people who have really responded to it so so it's not just the twenty four hours it just kind of has that energy right now like it's it's the cool kid indie film definitely I think Honey boy is a little bit different. I wonder of this. Is the the rare film here that will actually have. It's Oscar. Chances boosted by being in the press Alma Harris the director shall above and Noah Joop or both nominated for best supporting actor her I feel like the more light on this movie. The better for its chances going forward. We spent some time earlier this week. Talking about it. It's an interesting. It's an interesting entrant print into the field because there's a lot of potentially explosive aspects of it but it's also a good watch and I think a good watch could go along way. Yes in watch good watch tough watch. The big studio champions no surprise a twenty four eighteen. Nominations I would make the case that maybe low given the some of the the other films will talk about here in terms of the snubs you. I have seen a world in which they had twenty five. Nominations giving out the slate they had this year. NEON also has ten nominations neon twenty four right now. What kind of the the Alpha? And the Omega of the new Indy Business and everything it's resettled commodified and conglomerates D- These are really the two studios that I. I think that that the spirits have to lean on to find product. And it's interesting too because parasite has the best international feature here but it's not eligible for any other categories. What is I think it's because they don't take non English language films in the traditional categories? And so it's only the nomination and if it were eligible for more maybe it would be more dominant dominant for neon. I mentioned a hidden life. Give me liberty now. I haven't neither have I this interesting film from music. Box that premiered at a couple of film festivals I think he played TRIBECA. BECA played Berlin and is tough to see. I was released in August every year. The indie spirit awards. You get two to three movies that it'll have you say like what is that. Yeah I see that when will be released Well maybe maybe we'll give me liberty a chance before we get to this the spirit awards so we'll have to. We'll have some awareness of what to do with it couple of other smaller films that we've talked about on the show Diane. I had a Jones and Mary. Kay Place nominee here for the movie on the show earlier this here. That's a beautiful film. Be Interesting to see where Kent Jones six his career now that he has decided to depart the New York Film Festival loose movie. You didn't love that I liked quite a bit couple of acting nominations for that inference director. Julius ONA the climb which is a movie that is still yet to see but was in some respects. The talk of telluride sideways sideways on bicycles is how it has been described in the log line but two friends cycling through France I look forward to this movie. Sony pictures classics picked ended up coming out in March and marriage story. You Know I. It's not a surprise that it was eliminated with with with the allman award. I wonder to me actually. Yeah I I guess you know. We know the rules but right is it. Does it really. Will it really matter for marriage story because even if you buy into. The speech helps with the voting like the independent dependent spirit. Awards are literally the day before the Oscars. So exactly you know. They're going to be on people's minds they aren't do you. Watch the spirit awards. I always watch the clip of the did the hosts the opening monologue which is often very funny. It's definitely much funnier than the Oscars always and there's always one great speech or Kinda one notable notable moment. But no. I can't say that I you know. Go to some stores and then go home and turn on the independence or in the afternoon. That is exactly what I'd I know the store and then you go home. It's only because it is. It's packaged with the Oscars and I think literate for a decade now Oscar. Sunday has a working day for me. So I'm just trying to get that Saturday and no disrespect to the independent spirit. Awards which seems like a really fun time way more fun than the Oscars. Absolutely Louis Nick Kroll and John Delaney have been hosting the pass. And that's all you really need to know about the taste of the new spirits. They know what they're doing some snaps. Yeah I'm genuinely surprised. By the waves the lack of love for waves I would have thought that this is exactly where waves would live and would get multiple nominations in got just one for Taylor Russell. For best supporting actress I would have as well and I. There are a lot of people who genuinely really loved this movie including our boss boss a tweet. It had a lot of the people in the comments being like you. You GotTa Talk to bill. No everyone is allowed their own experience at the cinema and their own reactions. But I do you think that it's a it's a polarizing it gets reactions. I'm kinda surprising that it check. I'm surprised that it shook out this way feels like kind of film that usually thrives at this award show not the case this year similarly another twenty four movie made some are nominated Florence. PUGH not nominated. I thought it was pretty shocking. I know made some are also divisive movie in a way but more or less a box office hit and she's emerging as a very relevant figure in Hollywood. You think it's too mainstream at this spy. Wow I mean just the number of midsummer Halloween costumes alone. I'd love to ask her about how he feels about. Being too mainstream I fucked. Look I know but I I really think it got me how many of these people have actually seen the movie. You might be onto something I do think it it transcended the indy bubble and I wonder if that plus Florence pugh is already being discussed for for supporting actress for little women so there might be a little bit of okay. Well we don't need to to do this here because she's already going to be in the next elsewhere possibly. I don't know I wonder if uncut gems is one crazy movie enough you know like mid mid Samora has a has a sort of anxiety. There's not totally dissimilar from some of the anxiety that you feel when you're watching uncut gems and maybe they just didn't like horror. They did love. Get out when it was was released a couple of years ago. So it's hard to say Harry Zero. Nominations again says like the secretly the independent hit movie of the year. You'd think it could thrive here. No love high flying bird just one nomination for Terrell Album mccranie script this movie way under the radar flying under the radar. Like bird Right there good job these these these puns are free folks one. I was disappointed about was her smell..

Spider-Man Is Out of the MCU and Movies Are in a State of IP Crisis.
"Yesterday. There was some public negotiating going on between two movie corporations. One of them is disney and one of them is sony. Amanda can't even she's like. She can't even look at this going. I do unfortunately okay. We've talked about spiderman quite a few times. Actually on this show and spider man was was the political football of the movie industry yesterday because sony owns the rights to make spiderman spiderman movies marvel has been helping them do so and generating a small profit and working closely with kevin feige who oversees marvel studios and as the most successful producer probably only in the history of hollywood if we're being honest and it seems that didn't even wait. Let's pause on that for one second here. We go about it. Okay never had remiss he's going to have so many achievement awards named after him. It's truly well. That's if we still have movies by the time we get to his age of having achievement awards with his name on it you said and it and it seems the kevin foggy at least for now will not be involved in making spiderman movies normal marvel. It sounds like the <hes> tom holland. Version of spider man is going to a strictly sony product now in theory this is scary for fans of spiderman and there was literally a hashtag wakatsuki sony tony oh no trend yesterday people wanted to boycott sony because they could not come to an agreement on giving moral more money for the thing that they make that is a little bit confusing now. What will this mean. Practically it means that you probably won't see captain america in a movie with spider mingling if they don't come to an agreement i think those of us who are a little bit more more cynical and perhaps a little bit more savvy about this understand that they may actually come to an agreement here and at this impasse is public theater in an effort to show the world just how much they care about tom hall and being able to appear alongside. I don't know thor going forward the point here though is not whether or not we get to see spiderman in an avengers movie movie or whatever the point is. This is how movies get made. There was another bit of news. Yesterday i don't know if you saw this as well with that the matrix force coming from lana wachowski and by herself by herself. Lana has split creatively from lily which hausky her sister and is it amicable. I we don't know the the details of that. We know that this is important to me looking to me. If i'm gonna tell him not and i'm just like you just told me to grow up. I know this is life little torp welcome to what it's like to be on the spot and that is the question ideas services or whatever or american movies a bad dream right now is kind of a reasonable question to ask in the face of this because it now feels like we we got what we paid for. We rewarded everybody by going. All the superhero movies going all of the franchise blockbusters. Those are the things that drive the industry in a meaningful way. We have this conversation precision routinely on the show and i couldn't help but look at those two pieces of information which i think hit within twenty minutes of one another and couldn't help but feel a little little bit of a an existential chaos around what we're doing this for and that's not to say that i don't like those movies. I actually liked the idea of but that's another underneath movie. That's that's. I know it's not the point so how do you how do you both respond to these paired pieces of information. I told you so. I mean welcome to chaos it subsides after awhile. Can you get used to the natural order of things and you're just like well. I will go see tom holland spiderman and at least he's adorable and you find the things you like. I guess

"Straight off of the streetcar thing that none of us will candy give it a good shot that. Neither mike. No. I can't see the sense. Now. I'm for it. That's the candy. We love that's harps. There is now a another step forward to build some folks like to call high speed rail across the state, I call it a Choo Choo train. This was originally Microsoft put up some money to pay for research on this. I personally view this as Microsoft's train love to see Microsoft, if they want to train spend some of their money on a train, and then charge us all to ride it. I have nightmares about the Amtrak thing, which is which was foreseeable wash dot for saw that and the costs on this. So I'm looking at this with a great, Mike newspaper guy. But I want to say I'm looking at this with a great deal of trepidation trepidation, buddy. I would say that that's a pretty common lens for you to grab to look at things. Trepidation trip. Trepidation. Yeah. Over something. I would say also though that I think I mean, I'm not actually an enemy. High speed rail. I don't mind the idea I know that in places it's worked very well in other places California's project right now is actually moving ahead. But it struggling there's been a director who hasn't done such a great job. I think everyone acknowledges that I would love to see high-speed rail between I think it's the right now is between what Portland essentially and and Vancouver BC. I think that would be great. Here's the funny thing that people don't realize about high speed rail is who are the primary opponents to high speed rail historically in the United States. Me other than you. I don't know. So in California. A lot of the anti high speed rail money lobbying was the the what are they call the astroturf committees that were that were lobbying against it. You know, where that money came from cars airlines. Okay. That make sense. They were very unhappy about the whole notion because if you can do a high speed rail, and it's and you think about the time that you it takes you to drive to the airport go through all the security leave the airport wherever it is that you're arriving and you actually even a an hour train ride. That is an hour longer is still much more fast. Is this is a faster transit option? And they were very very concerned about that. And they poured a lot of money into fighting high-speed rail the first two times, I think it was proposed there and they won both those upstate New York. And I would go down into the city or I will go up to Montreal or down or over into Boston quite a bit. And that was always the debate hundred bucks for the train ticket or the one hundred fifty for the plane ticket and then land in less time only by like forty five minute, right? Right. And so they push a genuinely fear it. But I think if we could do it in the corridor between the two geologically is actually a pretty good one for high speed rail, at least from what the experts have said I would love to see it go in. But to your point about should Microsoft pay for it. I mean, if the transit system for everyone, I don't mind everyone paying for it. I don't think it has to be Microsoft. I have one more question though, a specific one. So why why do you call them Choo Choo trains, rather than just to train because it's an old technology. I think it's useless investing. It it is a big shell game. I think it's it's a dying technology. I think the lobbyists know that I think they understand that after these so-called self driving cars there's going to be micro flights. I think understand is going to be self. There's going to be flying. Shuttles. What's the city in the middle? East is Dubai Dubai. The drones drones. They're going to be self directed drones. I think they understand that in. It's it's an effort to build this and get it locked in the infrastructure part of it is also philosophical, I just did a Google search Spokane to see. Or partner Seattle Spokane. I'm looking at ninety seven bucks right now. To fly bunch of different choices. So I do think it's Microsoft's train. I think it makes sense for them because they want to have people be able to live in Spokane and work here. In that that makes sense. So I look at it as they're trained. So they should front the money. But then I look at this. And this is where it really gets me is I don't think sound transit is about moving people. I think it's about government jobs and money, and eminent domain. I look at the California so called bullet train. Okay. Number one. You know, it's no longer high-speed because they screwed up. They didn't have enough money to buy the rails. They needed in the right time. The original estimate on that train was thirty two billion dollars. It's now up in March of last year. It was up to seventy seven point three billion the estimates right now are about a hundred billion dollars. So I think it's so easy to hide graft and payoff in that that's one aspect to it. The other is in a one party state where there's no accountability. It is so easy to give people walking around money that these projects end up being to mean less about moving people than about moving money. I would like to see Microsoft, but that can also be true with highway funds. No, of course, not. Right. So if you if you make that argument, broadly, speaking about anything involving transit, you you actually have no transit. No, what I'm saying is in addition to the fact that it's a dying technology why give a corrupt agency or partially corrupt more money. We've got the roads those exist. I'm just not saying I'm not saying, let's let's give them what amounts to an end. This pilots. I would just have them. Do this Microsoft is donating donating their loaning five hundred million bucks for Ford about housing. I said cut out the middleman have Microsoft built a company town. An actual company town where the on the buildings they owned the infrastructure. They do a pretty good job. It'd be fun to be like a Disney town. You say town, though, what else are they responsible for public schools? Are they responsible for community centers social clubs grocery stores the social clubs because that'll be creepy. But everything else. Well, maybe we can go back to the company store as well. So you could actually maybe get a little Tom t hall on here, you could actually get to the point where you finish your workweek in debt to the company store or the food that they required you to buy from them. Yeah. I went to a company town that there was a company town in Utah. And it was next to a big mine, and I got ta I tended to have them trona in California's a famous company town, it's a mineral mined for variety of vitamins, and it is entirely company built minds because they tend to be remote they tend to have an unusual number of really awful company. I'll tell you my friend told me they've got sediment in the water. And I didn't believe him the best thing to a cafe and. It was it was a little muddy. But I I would just contend. I bet if it was Microsoft's money. I bet it wouldn't. I bet I bet if Microsoft built their own train. I bet the ball. I bet the budget would not go from thirty two to seventy seven two hundred billion. I better would stick pretty close to what it started Microsoft built its own trade. We'd sit around waiting for updates all day long. See that's a cynical remark. And you call to. Wasn't a little pinwheel going around while we're waiting to get the Vancouver. Yeah. I used to joke about and God bless Microsoft. They were so good to me. I like, Microsoft, you know, I don't know that I want their software and cars because you're trying to break blue screen of death and its breakup. Now, we'll get it to you a little later, Tracy.

What is it about that song? And Tom t hall's writing that draws you in. Just play them side-by-side number one. It's obvious. The man got me beat. This is why I'm such a huge fan. So last year, I was up for the mayor politician award, and they were doing a showcase the night before the ceremony at a blue city right there. And I went in there that night with Milady Wasser bunch of amazing artists. Get on stage in there right near the end the night, another Texan who to me is probably the greatest unsung living honky-tonk or in the world is a man by the name of James Han. And he got up on stage at the end of the night, and he called that song, and it just came in. And he started singing that song, and he had tears in his eyes and it over I was overcome by the power of the song. And now we're back to Graceland that night. And you could ask my girl.

"Thank you very much. News. Somebody was gonna take that Tom t hall and put the judge cavenaugh comments yesterday in there about how he likes to what the there was one Senator. And I I won't bore you with the audio of it because it went on and on and on, but he was trying to get Brett cavenaugh to admit to the fact that somewhere in his high school days, he drank so much that he blacked out. And that's what probably happened with Dr Ford. It was at a party that Dr Ford said that Brett cavenaugh and Mark judge. We were both inebriated because they've been drinking before this gathering, and he denies it. He says it never happened the four people that were allegedly at this same gathering in this house that judge for that Christine Ford. Couldn't remember who's house. It was where it was how she got there how she left, but she remembered everything that happened inside the house or most of beer, shed, a beer and they were in Hebrew. So then this one Senator just was just just going after him about beer, and he was like I drink beer. So you're going to accuse every guy in America, the drinks beer of being a sexual assaulter. Come on gimme a break. So it was I I said at the very beginning. Dr Ford did a great job. I believed her I think somewhere in her life, something traumatic happened. But I don't think Brett Cavanaugh was the guy who did it. And they had two guys come forward the other day that said they and we're trying to figure out who these y'all who's were. But they admitted it could have been us. Not Brett cavenaugh. He said he didn't even know anybody from her school. What's interesting? Yeah. He he hung out with the other Catholic schools schools. He said, you know, he he's such a good friend, and he would write down the names of people. He was contemporaneous on his cow calendars, ex-team brain is. And he would write the names of the people down that were at the actual Jeanie and Lisa and there was a Karen, I'm like, oh my God. And but you know, he never wrote her name down. I don't think they ever even cry. I don't think he ever met this woman. I don't think so either. And I believe maybe using a blackout needed. That's what it was. So anyway, that's hence the song today. They vote the Senate the senators that that were there yesterday committee. There's a lesson Republicans ten Democrats. So if all the Republicans vote he's gonna he moves on Senate. However, there is what's democratic senators snake? Not he no he's flakes going to go. I think flakes gonna go for capital. Lunch. Mnuchin crappy said he's going to vote for him. So they already got one democrat swayed. You're not gonna call for that vote at nine thirty this morning list. They are sure they have it. They met yesterday right after everything in a closed-door meeting. Oh, and I bet you I would bet Lindsey Graham threatened all he said if you don't vote. Yes. At least the Republicans you're all in big trouble. From from what I'm hearing. There's actually going to be more than one democrat voting. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Well, it's it's you know, I gotta I gotta feeling a lot of their colleagues did not like the way Diane Feinstein handled the situation, and it made the Democrats look they really did. She had a letter for two months, then she tells us woman, hire an attorney. And. Her name is leaked out. She didn't want her name out who did that. Yeah. Anyone that was the thing in Dianne Feinstein couldn't answer the question, and she said are staffed into and she didn't do it. But she was the only one with a letter from Dr Ford in fairness to this doctor. She did not want her name out there. And you know, she said, I try to do it the right way. And then she said, but when it came down to he was the nominee, and no one was listening to me. That's what she called the Washington Post because they asked her why she called the post on the anonymous decrypted line before he was he was on the shortlist when on the shortlist when he got nominated. That's when she called back, and she called the same reporter that how they got in touch with her is beyond me. And that's where the says I was in my class. And I thought this was a student and she came up to me, and she knew my name as she was a reporter. And she knew about it. It was up. They gig was up. Anyway. Reporter find out. That's what I wondered. Well, and no one could answer that question yesterday. So the only logical explanation was Dianne Feinstein steamed Feinstein's office leaked the information somehow on purpose. And I think as another democratic Senator would say that makes us look, really bad. You had this letter. You knew this woman was here we did this whole confirmation hearing oh two weeks ago. And you didn't say anything about it. They also she admitted yesterday that she wasn't told that the senators would come out to California to fly. She would have it would be behind closed doors completely no circus there. And in the you know. Attorney never told me that I didn't understand that. She said she did. And then she said that she's a world class that she flies all over the world. They originally said she couldn't go to Washington. The fly can't be confined book. All right. I'm going to give you three have any time. All right when we get back. I I haven't heard this. But LeBron James said something in an and I don't talk sports, but I saw this.
