Trump, coaches push for college football as cracks emerge
"As college football fans await word on the season. There's a player led movement that's gaining momentum. It's hashtag. We want to play and it's taking off on Twitter.

Fresh update on "tommy" discussed on Schopp and Bulldog
"Winning over Carolina. Is Joe mentioned great goal. Joe stepped out of the room. Boston scored. I knew what happened when I knew I When I got up to go to the bathroom, I knew the goal is going to happen. You're right this time. Um, Steve Bennett, A guy I know had done his podcast a few times. He tweeted about the goal. How nice it was. And like, Yeah, that was just his great tight passing through right, zigzag right through Carolina. And he said back to me. It reminded him of the Soviets see highlights of the Soviets just that kind of Pace and passing and accuracy and really, perfection may be the best line in the league, one of the best lines in the league pulling that off in Boston wins. Ah, the news here today. I think at the top is Sean McDermott. Getting a new contract. It's a four year extension or a new six year deal as he had two years left on the contract. He had And really, I don't find any reason to want, like, poke it that I think maybe it's most interesting to me from McDermott's side of the equation. Then it is to the bills like it's. It's notable that, like his Josette also It's notable that the bills haven't extended a head coach. Very often. He mentioned Wade Phillips. Being fourth on the Bills. Coach is winning are winless wins list Right Wins list 29 And that McDermott has what you say. 24 25 25 Okay? Pain like weight is somebody who could have gotten that. Extension, like his teams were always at least pretty good. And he didn't This goes back a long time. Dick Giron got it. But Rex didn't Of course. Rex didn't even get to finish his second year. He was fired before the season was over. So from the bill side of it, they've accomplished something under McDermott. And it is, It comes as no surprise that they would want to keep him and Neither does it. Come to me as any surprise that they would be willing to pay to do it like that's kind of a given here with a contract like this, so McDermott, I'm sure did very well today. Again like though the the side of it. The coach's side of it is interesting to me that he would you know again. He's being rewarded financially, but he was he would choose Tio. To stay to that extent, so Good. I mean, the bills have a good thing going. Now. This year is a big year. And the cove aid situation might end up Being sort of that an excuse. I don't want to sort of slanted like that. But One way or another. We'll see how the unusual nature of this year Effects or shapes any sort of opinion about the team's performance. You know, the quarterback goes away because of co vid then or, you know some other player or players. It will diminish any sort of blame that the team overall would get or the coaches would get if they were to not have a good season. I have a friend who was tweeting about fantasy football today to someone else's question. Like I think with Sigmund Bloom were referred to a stat that interest in fantasy football is down this summer. And our friend Neil, Joe, like Sigmund as well, Why do you think that would be And Neil's comment to him was that too much uncertainty? For him. The idea that a player could test positive and be out four weeks was what he wrote. Sort of kind of ruins, the mood for fantasy or his interest. Too much gamble. And I guess like, yeah, there will be probably will be more of that. But for me, it's still Already kind of the nature of football and fantasy football is that there are these injuries and part of the bill story. In the last three years under McDermott is that they have not had injury problems like they have been super healthy. They lost Josh Allen. Ian McDermott, second season, Allen's rookie season for a period of weeks. Remember at the beginning after that injury, there was some suspicion that it would be longer that it could be like Tommy John surgery for him, and it didn't prove to be that So they lost him for whatever that was. What was that? Like? 866 weeks, 67 weeks. Maybe when he was a rookie, but I mean, you look at last year's numbers, and you think it's like the wide receivers and On defense. They lost Milano one year, But last year, Edmonds and White and Brown and Beasley and of course, Alan like everybody was healthy. I mean, Singletary missed a few games. But the line I mean, overall, they had a very healthy season and that is important and sometimes that can go the other way. I don't think myself that people might disagree with this or Debate this, but I don't think they deserve credit for that. They might deserve a little, but we don't know the NF. We don't know NFL teams to be able to really control that and even If you want to make it three years isn't really enough to prove very much. So we'll see what happens there. They'll they'd love to have another year like that. Whether it's cove it or not, you're going to lose. You should expect to lose guys. I just think this season for them. It's unusual right because they're expected to be pretty good, if not very good. And so We're not used to that. I'm not used to expectations being high, even when they made the playoffs last year, and especially two years before that, they were really not expected to by most So high expectations this year. The coach is locked in. Really? I I thought about what kind of year.

Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker
"100 years ago, Madam C. J. Walker was the richest, self made woman in America. She battled both racism and sexism in a post abolition world. She created an empire of hair care products for black women, and she also employed an empowered thousands of black women across the country. Her story is the subject of a Netflix series called Self Made. Inspired by the Life of Madam C. J. Walker. The show stars Octavia Spencer as Thie, tenacious businesswoman, and Blair Underwood plays her husband. You see him struggle to live in the shadows of his wife's massive achievements. You might know Blair from L. A law dear white people or sex in the city. He also starred in the Broadway production of a Soldier's play. I talked to Blair right around the time. The play had to shut down early because of covert 19 back in mid March, and I started off by asking him why Madam C. J. Walker story is so important. She accomplished something that was just a monumental An extraordinary at the turn of the century in the late 18 hundreds and building this hair care empire Ah, woman. An African American woman, um, during that period of time to to earn that kind of money she did, And as you as you said, she employed and empowered thousands of African American women all over the world, So she was really you know, before Mary Kay or Avon or M Way she was creating distributors. People could have their own businesses and be their own business people at the time, So it was really extraordinary. It was amazing what she created, especially given the times in which she did it. Yeah, the early 19 hundreds. Incredible. So let's take a listen to a clip from the new Netflix series Self. This is you. Yeah, This is you and Octavia Spencer as husband and wife. New hotel downtown. The iron figure you will meet wouldn't go down. There could be a bell half you could do laundry. You don't just plant a seed and expect fruit the next day. Color women here. Just gotta get used to that idea. Somebody was doing ahead as all you know. I always love you big ideas, but I'm not going back to long enough. Now. Wait a minute. No way. Don't all made sacrifices You won't do was best for this family. Yeah, so there's definitely some tension. Attention that we hear that Cliff. How would you describe the relationship between your character CJ Walker and his wife, Madam C. J. Walker. Oh, loving but strained. I say, loving first, because I think that's the most important thing to know about. These two people is that they have great had great admiration for each other and affection. They came together and fell in love before she became successful before she became Madam C. J. Walker. Her name was Sarah. Breedlove. And my character's name is Charles Joseph Walker. So she's known in relationship to him. Mrs. CJ Welcome, Madam C. J. Walker, Um and then when she because of because for intellect and her driving her tenacity and her persistence. She as the brand became more famous, and she built. She was the driving force behind the empire that she built. And it was ah, a lot for him to swallow in tow handle into process on a day to day basis and There's alcoholism involved, and there was a womanising involved. And you know he himself was a man of his times on did not want to be defined by the woman in his life, no matter how much he loved her. It was very hard for him to just find his equilibrium in the midst of all of that. Yeah, and to figure out how to play second fiddle and still, I guess, maintain his masculinity or maintain the image of masculinity at that at that time, that's right and still feel of worth in a value. How did you get yourself into into that head space? That sounds like a really intense head space to get into. Well, you got nothing with acting you just Ah, In the simplest terms, we we played from people and we believe it A cz long as you believe more specifically that that you want this woman to win this woman that you're in love with that you want her to when you want her to succeed. And if you live in that space, and then all these other dynamics coming to play her becoming more successful, who are becoming more famous for becoming more well known, and then her ideas are the ones that really work more than your own. And then you you feel less diminished. But if it's rooted in the fact that you bonded and you came together as a team because of the respect and admiration and love for each other. Everything else kind of falls into place. You've been married yourself for 25 years. Did you draw on any of your own experiences in figuring out the power dynamics of a partnership for this role? Uh, yeah, I think you know you draw them everything you've got, because I was sorry. I should be more specific. I guess I'm wondering like you're a famous person, and I'm wondering if there's anything for you not even in terms of like gender roles. But just just just what it is to be a person who is in the limelight and and also trying to make sure that they're there. Partner comes along. With them and shines just as brightly. Wow, you know, Tommy, That's that's really great question. I I do think what What I've learned is that it's important to make. I find everybody around. You feel of value, but you're asking specifically in relationships. But I think that's important, too. You know that your spouse in that marriage or relationship that has a kind of dynamic Where one person maybe more known to the public. And it's more public facing that that person is aware Of how your mate might feel. My my wife doesn't care doesn't look for it, which is great, So it's a part of its part in parts of what I do as a professional is part of my profession. So there's no conflict in that respect, but But there is a sense of you know that it's important that she knows that she is valued in her world and heard her desires and her passions. And I think that's true for any relationship, so I definitely you know. Use that and this character just understanding that

Tommy Orange Reads Louise Erdrich
"This month we're going to hear the years of my birth by Louisa Drake, which was published in the New Yorker in January of two thousand eleven growing up in the midst of a large family I had never registered visitations from my presence. At those rare moments when I was alone as something strange. The first time I was aware of it was when I was taken from Betty and putting the White Room. After that occasionally had the sensation that there was someone walking beside me or sitting behind you. Always, just beyond my peripheral vision. The story was chosen by Tommy Orange whose first novel there there was published in two thousand eighteen and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Hi Tony. Hey Deborah. So what made you choose a story by Louis urging for the podcast so you had published, I think last year. Short story of hers called The stone is a pretty short short story and is it was a strange story and it just struck me So when you asked me to choose a story I went looking for another one of hers. She's actually published a lot in the New Yorker because I haven't known her for Short Sir she only as one collection of short stories you don't with pretty massive career, most of her stories started stories and end up in her novels. Yes. That's what I've heard her say and this one just struck me I think it's such a perfect story. In what way is perfect for you. You know what I love that fiction can do is the way it can get inside a consciousness and the way it can push mystery. There's something. So mysterious in this story and I don't necessarily always like magical realism but what Lewis does so well, in a lot of her work is sort of pushing boundaries of reality where it still believable still realism you never are asked to believe too much sort of realism's magic. There's something so strange and mysterious about it and really powerful the sort of cultural touchdowns that she does. So subtly though a native culture plays into it in the way, white culture comes up. Yeah. It's interesting because there is a supernatural component, but it can also be read as almost completely realistic. You can kind of how much you WANNA. Think of this as a kind of allegorical story and how much you want to think of it as real. Yeah. This is exactly what what I love about this story and what Louise doesn't work like I said. And if you've been reading, Lewis worked for most of her writing career at least. I mean, she's definitely one of my favorite writers of all time but I came to her a little bit later in my reading path. It wasn't until I was going to the Institute of American Indian Arts Getting my MFA a lot of native literature I didn't come to until getting into the program I. Sort of came in through a back door reading. Wise. I read a lot of work in translation, but I read love medicine I and just completely fell in love with her work. And do you feel the connection for you is that you have shared native American heritage? Definitely when I first started reading actually was a little bit turned off to some native fiction because it was. So reservation based and I, I have this urban experience but that was just sort of at the beginning of me thinking about native representation what it would look like in my own work the way that she handles bringing in native culture I think is so perfect. There's a clumsy way to do it and she never does it that way. always comes across really organically. and. Do you think that this story the the years of my birthday this characteristic if that main character as we'll discover is actually not native. Yeah I. Think the way that that works for the reader to something. Really Cool. Sort of putting you into a native family as a white character does a lot of work for the story I think. We'll talk more after the story and now here's Tommy Orange reading the years of my birth by Louise urge. The years of my birth. The nurse had wrapped my brother and a blue flannel blanket and was just about to hand him to his mother when she whispered. Oh God there's another one and out I slid half dead. I then proceeded to diner ernest going from slightly pink to a dull grey blue at which point the nurse tried to scoop me into a bed warm by lights. She was stopped by the doctor who pointed out my head and legs. Stepping between and the mother, the doctor addressed her. Mrs Lascher I've something important to say your other child had a congenital deformity and may die. Shall we use extraordinary means to salvage it? She looked at the doctor with utter incomprehension at first then cried. No.
"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well
Julia Elbaba on keeping her pro dreams alive

A brief rundown of Julian tennis career, she was number one in college as a junior Uva four time all American set a record at UvA singles with one hundred and thirty three wins, and then took her skills.

Stomping grounds at Virginia where things were kind of magical for me there i. just honestly they say best. Four years are in college and I never boating and when I actually went to school. I totally understood why they say that I can't get enough of that place. And I feel like many other tennis players that had attended UBA same way 'cause we were kind of all in quarantine together in Charlottesville from about mid March two up until a couple of weeks ago. We were kind of all. They're not necessarily hanging out, but we were all doing our thing in Charlottesville. Some people were hitting, but Just being there with so nice and The situation is a lot better there than New York is far as corona virus. So with regards to your college experience I. Mean I went to college for two years and I mean. You're clearly very excited talking about your college experience. What would you say like sticks out? What is it that you love so much about it? I just really appreciate a team environment of tennis and kind of playing for team. I actually that's the hardest thing I've been dealing with after call just kind of transitioning back to the individual lifestyle so playing for a team playing for your coaches, the school. The fans something about that was. Just brought me to life every day, and it was, it was beautiful and and also I'm a person that thrives in a situation where I have more than one thing going on multitasking so doing school with tennis I really that busy lifestyle, and that's kind of actually why. I started my own podcast as a way to have something else to juggle with professional tennis right now. It's a tricky time. I feel like especially. You just turned twenty six and you sound like you're still very connected to your college experience, but you did. Take your skills to the pro tour. Can you tell us where you're at in your career with tennis? Yeah so up. Until the beginning of two thousand, nineteen, I was going strong with competing traveling around the world. And then unfortunately, my body is very easily injured. I have a very muscular physique and it's just. Primarily like just genetics people think what are you doing, Jim that your body so muscular and strong like? Oh, you can ask my mom. But honestly I feel like the muscle mass. Mass! makes me more prone to injury and I'm actually now unhealthy but I was dealing with an injury for the past year. A torn UCLA in my right elbow, which is like You probably know what Tommy John. If you have to get surgery, it's Tommy John Surgery. But I didn't need that. Luckily I was actually ready to start competing again once. Quarantine hit sides kind of bad lockwood the timing. What's been one of the things that you've found other than the fact that you have to play for yourself now? I mean being on the tour is not easy. A lot of people just think that Oh. I was a good college player. You know now I'm going to just transition easily into the tour, but what was kind of the most shocking thing for you. Definitely the adjustment to just being on the road by herself. Obviously, if you know you're doing really well, you can bring a whole entourage and it's great. physios of massage therapists families all your support system, but also I Adore on court coaching. I it just really works well for me. And I get really tight and nervous on tennis court so having that coach during matches especially in college, I definitely thrived in that environment. So I'm actually very. Much like into trying to have coaching during matches in protest I think that would just be super cool. Tennis is like the only sport that doesn't have that like why.

Come back now we're talk. Back. We don't either do again. That was the last time I drank and so I thought that was. Interesting! There's also another time that I. told you about this on podcast on. That I was at the Nine hundred ninety seven was that the twenty year anniversary of the grand illusion tour, and it was at the universal amphitheater here Los Angeles and. I was backstage and. Took advantage of the free bar and got drunk out of my fricking mind and. Then I'll say it. Attacked you acted like an asshole. I was like Oh. There is Tommy Shaw and I was I. was that Fan that you just can't wait to get away from and I? Just I I wouldn't let you go. I was the belligerent a man that talk about this with you and. It was all I kept on selling you. Was that your album? What if is my favorite I? Said Hey is my favorite of your solo albums and whatever you set back to me was not what I wanted to hear, so I then upped the ante and said I'm not kidding. It's my favorite album of all time. and. That seems high. Can we agree on that? and. In close. March. and. Parts of it. Fresh because again, I'm sure you haven't played that since the mid eighties when you were coke up. At sober. So. Tommy I'm interested since we're on the topic of that album and I had heard through the years that you hated that album. Is it because of where you were in your life that you didn't like it or or did I misread a an interview, or is that just how you felt on that day? I'm disappointed in that album is that because I was drinking heavily and doing cocaine, and and it was just you know. It could have been a lot better. Boy At the end. That's surprising to me because it I was working at a record store at the time. And we got the whatever the version of the Promo Day called that the white label or whatever that came into the record store, and I was listening to it nonstop, and the other memory I have epochal album is. I was going to pick up this girl on a date, and she said my dad wants to meet you. And I wanted to meet her dad, and he was wearing a leisure suit and. I just assumed that. When you turn fifty, you started wearing leisure suits. It was the most uncomfortable like why the fuck are you walk? Run a leisure suits, you Weirdo, and like it just bizarre to me. But but let's go back all the way if you're comfortable doing it. Talking about the first album I ever bought with my own money was the grand delusion in seventy seven. But you joined the band and seventy six. And Crystal Ball was your first album. I'm sorry. Was it seventy six or seven, seventy, five, December, seventy five, okay, so. sorry I'm off thirty days. Even remember it. Very proud of you. So you you, you're like a car traveling cover basically right? Do maybe doing some originals, but mostly covers out of. Thing that was messed up about our history were doing almost all original. Right heap cover, or you know tower power cover, but mostly mostly covers.

Parents have high expectations for achievement maturity and cooperation from their children but they are also nurturing actively listening to their children and taking an interest in their ideas and opinions because of this the children of authoritative parents tend to be happier and more independent and they develop healthy self esteem and problem solving skills. Mike Caldwell was an example of this parenting style. He pushed his son to be daring and adventurous anti expected. Tommy to participate in challenging family activities. But Mike was also loving and positive. He turned even the most difficult outings in the fund. Adventures making sure to acknowledge Tommy's efforts in praise his accomplishments as a result. Tommy developed both physical and emotional resilience. He was comfortable in the face of adversity and adept at solving challenges qualities. That would serve him well.

I also like this whole repetition of things that we have like the We'll hear from KIPP power later on. But in his book he makes a point about how everything is repeated in threes. This whole do you think it's alright blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Do you think it's all right happens three times each time and in the movie itself there's like going to the Maryland thing going to see a doctor. I know going to see the acid queen. We're trying these cures three times. You know there's the trials of cousin curve cousin Kevin Ernie and then Tommy in the mirror so it's like each thing gets to be repeated three times it's almost like this magical number that this musical has oh.

Getting who are who are you reading at the time I'm I mean aside from maybe some of the religious texts like who is really getting excited about fiction at the time Kafka embarrass where the where the I think. They're good bridge from MM philosophy to fiction. So what about those writers really turned you on. I didn't even know what fiction could do. I didn't read it all anything. Anything I read in high school. I was just skimming through to pass a test or you know. I didn't even care to pass it. I just wanted to not drop out of school or not get kicked out And so I wasn't reading really and so when I realized what fiction could do and they really push the limits of what fiction can do in a in a serious way to me Mm I knew I wanted to do it. And I read John Kennedy tools confederacy dunces right around that time and the moment that I realized I wanted to some day. Try to write a novel. I was actually eating a donut and reading confederacy of dunces on a break from the bookstore. And it was. You know that you can be that funny. Finding in sad was just the best thing ever to me. I love the detail of the donut because it also actually. I'm serious because in a way. When you read Tommy's book the level more specificity and detailed that book is remarkable and you just saw him do it in speech that exactly why that novel functions so beautifully? I want to just pause there about literature to talk about music because aside from your from your from the false start in the audio engineering world. You're also piano the player and when did you start playing piano so I fell in love with playing music with the guitar and I was eighteen eighteen and then when I was twenty one I I had a dream where I was lost in a hotel with a bunch of other people that was completely empty. The hotel look no furniture. Anything and we were all looking for the same thing but we couldn't tell each other what it was and I came out to like the back of the hotel and I saw piano and the key. The white keys were double wide. BLACKIES were the same has no significance but they were and I sat down and played a song that I felt came from wherever the deepest feelings you have come from and I and I just knew I wanted to get back to that place so so I went out at pretty hard after that dream right around that time by discovered tea and he is doing something that I I just I wanted to head in that to that territory. Whatever he's doing so we actually have a little clip of Tommy? Playing saying that I'm GonNa ask you. Do you want to set it up at all so I was recently at the macdowell colony And this is not really in the family of Eric's.

This is Rochman enough like this is this is something I recorded at the macdowell colony. I was in my room where I was staying. There was a baby grand and I read. Make a lot of recordings.

Whatever you know what you're GonNa get when you when you hire me as I've been told in the theater community and that's kind of what I wanted to do on this show too I just WanNa be myself I wanNA play a character I that's I you know I'm an actor but I don't really know if it's a very Rickie to me because I think I'm more of I'm just being myself yeah myself to these real good thanks so now I got tom but now I'm going to challenge all that right so read because you are all that but then you walk into the House and see sixteen individuals and one of them is someone that dated someone in your family so now you have to play a character like what are you thinking when that because you have no idea right you have no idea that she's going to I mean they had to be check in how do you adapt and what was your strategy there honestly I feel like that was my whole game balancing my relationship with Christy I love her so much so it wasn't it wasn't there was no negativity between you two from break-up so you are made or there was you could get past it for yeah and we can get past together it was either tween us but is everything to me so you know on this show and the whole time I'm thinking of about she dated my aunt and my aunt my aunts all like second mothers to me Yeah my my my family's everything to me and I am just thinking about my aunt the whole time in that house and it's it was so rough to think about how is this being perceived on the outside is my favorite okay that's real like yet I'm here to play a game and right Christine I agree I love Christie so much and I was never gonNA turn my back on her in that house but we also played very a different game and it was the toughest part of my game was navigating my relationship with her or balancing my relationship with her while navigating my relationship I put the other houseguests just because I love somebody and trust somebody doesn't mean that she does right that was what the tough parts were in the house right right man it was tough I mean and what a wild thing to come out of that and then be like hey because your aunt probably didn't know that she was going to be on right or did you that we were both questioning but we we have to stop speaking after a certain point so once we hit semifinals what it's called we stop speaking okay and you know I didn't know I have no idea but I'm sure you're ended up being so proud of you because you guys did well you know like it's not like it you weren't malicious you weren't using each other you're generally like like basically your family for a little while she's kind of part of the family whatever happened happened but you too can come together and the end goal is and at the end of the day it's a game so the end goal is to get to that end so you everybody knows in the Big Brother to game you do whatever you have have to do to get to the end and if you can have someone to keep you saying to go along with you you know that they can I'm sure your family could understand that yeah they they could I I got out and they were all really supportive yeah but yeah it was it was a rough summer for my aunt who of course imagine it's rough it's got to be really I I said to her like you are my number one and I will spend the rest of my life apologizing and making it up to you if I caused you even an ounce of pain right and it did it did cause her that I feel terrible but I couldn't control the situation I was in it it was it was what it was makes me angry at like production in that way 'cause I'm like why are you doing that to people you know what is a bystander I think given the situation you handle it so well because there was no Oh it all dirty laundry exposed about the relationship into we just had this conversation I didn't know that there is any type of like grief between your family knows you're mant so Kudos to you guys for just like let's put the past blind protect our family if you protect me in this house yeah so it's wildly aggressive that is and I can't imagine like you know even in our world that we're on the show where everybody hates each other and then you have to go watch them date other people nick and you barely it's not like this eight year relationship right was eight years air together something instead of seven so I can't imagine how challenging that would be for me to be rooting for somebody in my family and be watching my ex at the same time she didn't watch she yeah okay so that makes sense you yeah we get it on my gosh yes I could I truly imagine yeah the first thing I thought was all my gosh wouldn't I saw Christie come in it's funny because in the House yes we liked down the line like when we were into the whole entire day forty-five whatever it was fifty two we like to talk about our first impressions of Each Other Day One what we thought and I I I would never have anything to contribute to that conversation because once Christie walked in the door I completely blacked out I don't remember anything from the first day nothing at all just blacked out that's it from day one in what day was it release that information it was daylight day yeah let me think so amazing numbers guy this is the first time I've watched his show the season was day eighty one actually days no-one knows and their alliance the whole time he has not watched the show I think about the eighty one days sixteen changes and no one knows that they've known each other forever how crazy it was like an answer you too she's Sh- okay so Christie is my age she's twenty nine but she dated my aunt and my aunts you know it was anyway we'll see she's my aunt's fifty years old so it was it was a big thing for the family I quit the family was very exciting optimal obviously something's here's divorced you know it was a big deal yeah yeah so you know they we spent I spent so much time with Christine and so now moving forward you guys are clearly going to be close that's gotTa be challenging in itself figure that out to eat at home but you one hundred percent right I gotta figure it out now that we're out of the House the Games all of a sudden request the Chris with time you heard it here first oh my gosh cutthroat now that's amazing all right now no I'm obsessed.

"Now she's on tour over the world with Tommy hilfiger, g Hadid collection. Incredible. And with the fragrance, right? And other people starting to think that way in the idea to go to the next to me that is the fun of the business today. Right because I liked to be disruptive. I like to be breakthrough. And I like to do what the competition doesn't do and be ahead of your head. How much the team work how much it's all about. It's all about the people, you need incredible people who believe in you and believe in what you wanna do and are passionate and want to. I I need these people to bring me ideas. Also. Right. And when I give them an idea, I want them to take my in make it even better, of course. So it's it's all about teamwork. Yes. You rub double. I mean, you just listed off the who's who of everyone that everyone wants to be people that have Warner close people that have been admirers people that have been part of your journey. I was actually signed to Tommy Mottola, actually. So he into Leah. You know, we're literally like stepparents in New York almost to me right when he was running CASA Blanca right next door to the Louis Vuitton store on on on on the avenue. And you know, what's the best piece of advice that you receive? Leave from all of these people whether you even from gee-gee now or Tommy or Quincy Jones. Yes. Tommy, and I very close because. Tommy ni-. Actually, we live next to each other. Okay. We see each other every day. Okay. So in a we we're we're good. We're good balance to each other.

Gloria Estefan, and he ran Michael Jackson's life for a long time. Yeah. So Tommy gives me a lot of advice on how important it is to stay true to yourself because that was the advice he would give to Mariah the that's what he did the advice he gave to Lia in helping her become. Arguably the number one. Blatt and superstar in the world. Yes, stay true to yourself believe in what you believe in don't sway from it and milk it while you can make hay while the sun for sure so I mean, it's Tommy's a genius when it comes to business and music and celebrity, and we're partners and businesses together. And I look up to him for a lot of advice and then to Leah. I mean, she's an entity onto ourselves. Yes. Yes. She is. It's it's a great relationship with. That's amazing. Would you if you if you had to give advice to the entrepreneurs that are listening, would you would you would you just pass that advice through be true to yourself? I that's the advice. I give to other people. Well, because I do believe in it. But Tommy solidified it in a way that came from the viewpoint of hitmaker. Right. Someone who made hits. Yes. And I'm saying it through the advice of fashion person. So, you know, the two things I love in my life are fashioned music yet. So if I take the fashion advice from myself, right?
