"Bullseye with Jesse Thorn is a production of maximum fun dot org and is distributed by NPR. Uh Jesse Thorn. It's Bullseye. The stereotype goes usually that there are character actors and stars. A character actor can show a couple of scenes maybe only for five minutes and even in that small moment that could make a film. I guess Tony Shillue can do that. Well a star of course you build a whole movie or TV show around there relatable charming former but my guess Tony Shalhoub can do VAT to. He's a veteran of both the big and small screens. He's had unforgettable parts in movies. Like Barton Fink men in black quick change. He starred in movies like big night. TV shows like wings and of course the hit detective series series monk. These days irregular on the Amazon. Show the Marvelous Mrs Mazel. It's a drama set in the late. Nineteen Fifties Rachel. Brosnahan plays the title character commits Mazel when the series starts out Midge is a housewife living in Manhattan. who puts her old life behind her to take up? Stand up comedy she leaves her husband. Takes Sir kids and moves back in with their parents and in fits and starts her stand up. Career takes off my guest. Tony Shillue Plays Abe Weisman Midges Dad Roll. That's Gotten Tony. A handful of awards including an emmy last year the Marvelous Mrs May as well just dropped. Its third season this past month but when Tony and I talked last year. The show's second season had just launched in it. Midge is still living with her family. Her mother rose has moved out of the apartment. She fled to Paris and I. It hasn't really sunk in for Abe after all rose has a big party coming back home but in this scene. We're about to hear it. Finally actually dawns on him. Papa are you kidding me. Mama moved to Paris. What that's ridiculous? You hear what you just said what you just told me the Mama told you she was moving into parent. I've never said that I don't feel like I have a life. Pure everyone in everything that I have ever counted on has let me down and you said okay. No I should. Lamb was okay and it was could brief honestly couple. You don't listen not true. You don't listen to anyone not true. I don't feel like I have a lifestyle repeating that all right. I'll sometimes I two people but mostly because they rarely have anything useful or interesting to say what her closets empty drawers anti not. Her perfume was gone. Wishes things and guessing Paris but was she going to wear to the party tonight. You notice this you sleep right there. Who Live here to you? Didn't notice either. Her husband closet way more than I. Am Tony Shalhoub welcome to Bullseye. It's great to have have you on the show. Thank you nice to be. I saw you wince at your character saying he doesn't listen to other people mostly because they don't have anything interesting to you. Say that sounds a little arrogant. I suppose I mean one of the funny things about your character on this show. Is I think the show is not about your character. Your characters a secondary character show show right and in a lot of shows like this especially funny ones which shows very funny it would be fine to let the protagonist have the journey right like the protagonist gets to go on a journey. Everybody else has a funny thing about them that the audience recognizes then we support that protagonists this arc. I suppose you're characterize changed a lot in two seasons of the show. Yeah it's a very it's rare for for series for a character in series television really Because as you say normally you're you know you get hired and then you're kind of if you're somewhat limited to what you're being called on to do and we'll what purpose serve in for actors. That can be frustrating. strating at times. Because you you're the guy that does this or you're the sort of stupid guy. You're you're the whatever it is and you get kind of you've confined or constrained into playing two colors three. You're very lucky and I've been fortunate in in this case to you that you know they're they're just My character happens to be in a inflation elation life where he's in he's in transition like the and I think it's because of the transition that midges in that you know that my daughter is going through all her changes are impacting. All of the people around her. You were not just not just stuck in our in our little mode. I was watching the first episode of the second season Earlier today and where you and your daughter travelled to Paris and and you're wearing an overcoat a brown overcoat with a blue check that If they had just showed me that overcoat I'd be like yeah. Okay oh how many years is the contract for like. Yes I get to wear that overcoat. Yes salt yeah that and that that speaks to this whole idea that that You know this I like I love this idea that we're you know we're in the late fifties. I just. It's I guess the forties and the fifties have always been really good your those good decades for me in in terms of playing characters and especially today because I think we all need as viewers and as certainly factors respite from present day craziness and what this the other thing that this affords us as the saw their cell phones in this show their computers. `puter I mean. The computers are the size of this room. You know there's no We're low tech. We're super low tech and I just find that so refreshing you were the star of monk for many seasons. This won't be news to you. I sat as my sounds familiar million which was a detective procedural on USA a comic Detective Procedural in which your character character was the brilliant genius detective who in part his genius detecting was colored by his obsessive compulsive. NECE and I really think it is one of the best of this kind of show that has ever been made. It is so hard to make a show like this. That is pleasant to so many people that also is sharpen specific and so on and so forth. You know what I mean like. It's sort of defined what the USA network even to some extent still is today. But but like it's about an incredible specificity and especially in your performance. Thank you and I wonder what it was when it came to you and how how it came to you To pilot had been it was first at ABC for number of years. and was kind of languishing anguishing. They're the you know the with a lot of these things you know you. It all has to kind of fit together. You have to have the right person and the right the right time and You know Script was just was just not getting any traction and then I think an executive was departing ABC and going Over to USA and asked to take this property and see if they could develop it and that was fine and then and then I believe it was at ABC. I mean I'm sorry I believe it was at USA for a year before it came to me you know. A number of people had they had approached a number of different actors at both networks and some actress had approach them and it just it just never would I even Michael Richards. I heard was circling it for while they were circling in and I you know I just. It was just fortunate. My manager at the time was reading the A pilot for Another client of hers it was she was actually reading it for The character of Sharon this assistant and then why she was reading reading it she thought of me and so sent it to me in I had never heard of it. I didn't know anything about it. And then I met with the network and the writers and We were off to the races and we had to. You know I was the first one attached so they asked me I. I mentioned that I would like to be involved as a producer too so I can have some input voice and so they asked me to read with people audition. We're addition people for Sharon stottlemyre and all the other regulars in which I was happy to to do and that's how we put it all together. What did you think about when you first saw it? Well when I first read it. I didn't really respond to it because I didn't. I thought it was good but I didn't see my way into it and I call call my manager and I said that I said look I I I get what you're I don't get how how's this me and she she's very subtle and she said you better read it and he should read it again because this is more you than you probably want to admit and so I did and I read it a second in time and It had started to become clear. And how in the the the script that I read the pilot Hulett script and I remember. This is a long time ago but the script that I read was It wasn't really the pilot that we wasn't exactly the pilot we shot it was written more It was brought her. It was written. I think it originally was conceived morals like almost like inspector clue also thing except with those e d it was broader comedy you know and That was the part that I felt was was was not a good fit for me and Y spoke to my manager about this and then she said well you should sit. Just sit down. You can sit down with the writers expressed this and you know. Tell them what it is about it that it works for you and how you would like to have them change it and maybe they will and and that's exactly what I did and they were fantastic. They were open and And I said Look I. I love comedy but I think we should. You know maybe toned down the really really broad stuff and let the comedy come out of the guys pain and out of the guys problem in D- But also you have to remember. We're talking about a time time when we did. This is right after nine. Eleven not not long after nine. Eleven so culturally. I think we entered a new level. we were entering an age of anxiety of higher anxiety. which this character I? Don't I mean you know certainly the show the script and the and the idea was conceived before nine eleven as I said it late around for years but came came time to actually actually put it on do it and put it on the air. People were feeling they. We're we're all in a bit of a state of a uh-huh what now and you know how. How fragile is it all and so we enter we kind of enter the the the mindset of this character how? He's been living his entire life really until he met his wife and got better and then she died and then he got worse so but then we were entering also at the same time we were. We knew that we were on a slippery slope because we're dealing with OCD which is very real and tragic kind of debilitating disorder. And so you don't want to send that up too much. You an honor the people who have of it so we had to we just kind of like holding our breath that it was going to be received by that by those people. Are you know that community In the right way and Do do it in a way that we want. What we we were trying to do really was to de stigmatize the disorder and Because the character had so many good qualities and was so talented in so many ways ace and could make all these gigantic contributions to society You know but but maybe just getting out the door taking fifteen minutes was would be funny. You know but we did we. I think the writers did a really good job and else the whole creative team because you know in capturing the tone We found that sweet spot and we got a lot of Harry positive feedback from people who suffered from the disorder disorder of people who had family members or even doctors. I get letters from psychiatrists and psychologists and people say you know. Have Referenced Your Your Show in our book in my book that I'm writing about mental illness. Oh my God it was. It went way beyond what we intended it. Yeah I mean I think that the challenge the fact that the challenge that the character faces what leads to the resolution and met the the challenge challenging the pain inherent in the challenge is real makes the hopefulness of it you know which is fundamental to this kind of TV. He is that like part of what you're offering is that the problem will be resolved so it's comforting in that way and so the fact that you know that you will get that comfort but that you will get it from something that actually feels like it might mirror pain that you might have or fear that you might have exactly why because we all I think we all do. Many many people do to a degree. You know we have these kinds of Obsessive compulsive tendencies But but or we just get fixated on things or we but many of us have ways of dealing with and coping with it and filtering it. So that it's not as obvious to the rest of the world and we don't voice or demonstrate. These kinds of things were monk. Doesn't have that filter he just says it and does it feels it and demonstrates it. Let's let's hear a scene from monk and my guest Tony Shalhoub so in this episode is from the seventh season of the show Monks Personal Assistant. Natalie helps a thief steal. The bicycle accidentally helps a thief steal the bicycle of a biotech. CEO and so in this clip. Monk and Natalie are getting a tour of the biotech company from one of the lab. Who's played by a pass? This show brilliant actress Pamela. Adlon Oh lover Dean. Dean Berry founded Beta data vegetarian five years ago. So what exactly do you do. We're saving the world okay for you. I was getting a little worried about the World Square. Is that a square tomato. Yes it is. It's a pet project of deans. square-shaped means that farmers can pack thirty five percent or tomatoes per carton. It's cheaper burn more efficient so that means every slice is exactly the same size. Has It tastes who cares. It's a square tomato. You're doing a little work. Literally Mr Barry. I just wanted to see sorry without the vice. We're testing new corn seed. They're genetically engineered to sprout in twenty minutes or less what you're seeing is going to revolutionize the agriculture industry as you know what the square tomato. I'd forgotten that I love. I've forgotten the square great tomato. That was IT IS A. It's a great line when he says I've been feeling a little worried about the world. They're even more from the great.

My guest is actor Tony Shalhoub. He is of course an incredibly talented actor. He's been in films like big night. The man who wasn't there spy kids just to name a handful. He's currently in the cast of the marvelous. Mrs Mazel you can stream. That chose third season now on Amazon. He and I talked last year. I WANNA play a clip from a movie that you were in. It was a much earlier in your career that I know this is I love. This is one of my favorite movies. it's a movie called Quick Change from Nineteen Ninety and It's a it's a really. It's a really wonderful movie all told I think maybe one of but if not bill Murray's best made me rushmore but eh besides rushmore. Bill Maher is best movie that he ever did. Any Co directed it and a really great movie. You play a character in this movie. That could have been so awful. You played You're Lebanese American and your character is basically ethnic cabdriver speaks excess in nonsense words. They didn't want it to be an identifiable ethnicity. So yeah it's it's very surreal. I mean like partly the tone of the film saves it from being the awful thing that could have been but I think largely it saved from the awful thing it could have been by a really wonderful performance by you both really funny and like human inhumane in a way that it didn't necessarily have to be for cabdriver character in comedy in Nineteen Ninety When goes characters often were just You know broad ethnic jokes. Yeah typical cool. Yeah yeah so I I WANNA play a clip from. I don't know how this plays in audio because you're mostly Mostly House yeah. Yeah shameless faces. I make so bill. Murray is a bank robber. He dresses as a clown. Robs is a bank with Gina Davis Gina Davis and his best friend Randy Quaid And then they all get into a taxi cab and they're we're having a hard time telling what they're trying to get away. They're they're having a hard time telling what you're sitting there trying to get to the airport east. Got It great. And what did you take a straight to sing sing. Please don't say that you'RE GONNA upset. Stole did hurdles and Dollars to you. Read from now in Cabot Randy Quaid freaks out so much but I think he jumps out the passenger door you. This was probably a party in your part of your career. Where if you get a multiple scene part art movie 'cause my first movie really you're not in a position to question it but did you think about it at the time lake? How many movies have a you? You know a broad. Broadly unidentifiable Middle Eastern guy who yells things as a taxi driver it now I didn't I was so I I I loved the script and I really think it is a great movie. An underrated movie. I think it's like a legit great movie. I think even leaving aside its rating rating which I think is under yeah. I think it's a great movie. It's it's very very clever movie The premise itself is is brilliant. It's you know it's it reflects New York City in the eighties Very beautifully and In a really genuinely funny way and No I love the idea. No I love the idea that when I read the script when it came to my part there were no lines. It just said the CABBIE speaks and we don't understand and so when I had to addition for it so I went in and met the casting in bills their Bill Murray was there into I had to you know basically gibberish language but instead of just mumbling Baba I hi actually rode. I rode out my lines. I just made up of gibberish language so that I could so so that I would have repeated. Words repeated sounds for you know what I was supposed to be talking about. Tolkien this thing. Yeah I just I just the only way I'm GonNa do it and not just look like I'm blathering mumbling. Because the Cabbie knows what he's saying the cabinets guy I mean It was my first and it was. I gotTa tell you this too. It's my first movie. I think think for things doing mostly theater. But I'd auditioned for a lot of things and it's the first and maybe the only time where where I was offered was offered the job in the room that never happens. You know take take thank you very much you go away you wait a few days your agent calls you the value of Kovac a yoga. You have the offer they want to give you the part. That's how it goes participants. You know I did actually have a callback for this. Maybe two and Put cut finally on the whatever the final call that was bill. Murray says you WANNA do this because we're good. Let's do it and We had a blast shot at all. The most of it was night shoots in Queens and I got to work with Jason Robards. Who was a god to me inspiration when I was younger and a lot of people in the Stanley to cheese in this movie? A lot of great people in this movie and But it was at. I made up my own language. Do your worst movie thousand clowns Jason Robarts only about fifty times. It's the reason I became an actor and that was that was that was that was at a time when I was high school. When you know you couldn't we didn't have have you know VHS? There wasn't any of that when you saw a movie you waited a year and it was on. TV waited another year for it to come around on TV again. Maybe and I was devoted to that film and I it was it was. It was a really moved the needle for me. Now when and you saved thousand clowns made you want to become an actor. I need to movie about. Jason Robards. Plays a moderately unsuccessful. Comedy Mighty writer who needs to get a job because he's responsible for taking care of his teenage son. Nephew two sisters yeah Sister left yeah and so he is basically facing this choice in his life. which is he has the opportunity to get the job on something that does not meet his artistic standards which you know are difficult to pin down? Maybe because he's a comedy Eddie Guy and he is struggling to accept the responsibilities of adulthood. It's he knows is that he has to and he knows how important is because there's this kid and he's falling in love as well and it is very very painful for him and difficult for him to be frank with himself about that and do what he has to do and I know a ton of comedy how many people who loved this movie I've had many conversation with longtime Conan. Now Colbert late show writer. Brian Stack about it for example. The real funny guy and I think for a lot of comedy ball is a deeply difficult film to watch because has it asks them to confront their own complicity in the kind of irresponsibility of creating art especially completely frivolous list art with their life. So you saying that you make you wage want to become an artist it's a movie about the horrors and pains that come from the self centeredness of wanting to be exactly. Yeah that's how sick I am. Ah where did you where did you first see it. Did you first see it on TV. Yeah I I grew up in Green Bay Wisconsin. Has I think it was in high school when I first saw it and I just remember being so struck by it in those performances and and just the whole message behind it the whole idea about it behind. You don't in a sense you know that that's always always. That's always a dilemma of the creative person. I think it's It's it's what big night was about. And you know that sort of balancing act that you have to that you have to deal with between art and commerce. It's that's One can rarely exist without the other and It's a it's a ongoing challenge. I mean not even just art and commerce but also the the solipsism and and self regard that's required to think. Oh I could make things and that could be my whole life. You now the amount that you have to dedicate yourself to being artists to be an artist you know and the kind of presumptive of that and the tension that that creates with your responsibilities to others to your community to and that's I think why I whenever I watch Komo clouds. I cry like forever but I think it's it's it's even beyond that because what you're talking about is it implies a A choice a decision kind of an intellectual decision and in for my my experience you know the reality is this is that that's certainly that's there. But you know the part part of the thing about creativity and the pursuit of Art Is You know. There's a compulsion there too. You know people can't help it. They have to do it. They I mean real the the really great people the good people Maybe not so good people who just have to compulsion. I'm not sure but there's a thing where it's it's it's less of a less of intellectual decision is just. I need to do something I I need to create this. I need to do it. And and that's their you're screwed because then you then you can't stop whenever you do. Stop then you're just setting yourself up for life of other different kinds of torture. Well Tony we're out of time. I didn't even add nine brothers and sisters. I didn't even mention it this whole time. I've just gotten started normally. That would have been the whole hour.

Disney plus. Hey everybody I'm GONNA call my friend Jonathan Coulton and share some exciting news. Why hello my good friend Vera Izenberg from NPR's asked me another. How are you? Good Jonathan Coulton I want to share with you something? Yeah. See that's. That my friend car keys I bought a car Oh my goodness I know. I've had cars in the past and those were between the ages of eighteen and twenty one. Just, way to parked it on the street in New York City for a couple of weeks. You know. So I drove it last night as I do and I did some street parking. You Know New York, it's always a thing and I parked it and someone stuck their head out the window and said, you know that I know it doesn't seem like they cars from there and I was like, thank you so nice. Nice Nice they were just hanging out their window on the third floor looking at people. People don't live in New York City might not know how it works, but there's this thing called alternate side parking. The craziest thing I'd never heard about it before they clean the streets on a regular basis but the deal is when it's time for straight cleaning on the right side, everybody moves their car from the right side to double park on the left side for two hours or whatever. Yeah. And Jessica on our block an older gentleman who's lived there for his whole life and he is like the mayor of the block and he is always like coming to my door and reminding me that it's time to move the car or like he sees a space and he's like, oh, Johnny, only. Face. And it's a it's great. And I will say. People Double Park, and it doesn't necessarily look like it's double parking day and so what happens is people come down the street. And sit behind an empty double-parked car and honk their horns. In the car there's nobody in the car they could easily go around but they don't. And then I I love to stride angrily out of my house and make the go around. Go around see this finger it's going to make a half circle. You know what that means. That means I'm stressed about this. Count, yourself lucky. Different finger to give you the go around. A Public Radio Listeners always talk about how much they miss car talk. So here you are people. Say. Why don't I play the new car talk theme that I've just now composed fantastic. Yes. please. From NPR and WNYC. Coming to you from our respective homes in Beautiful Brooklyn New York it's NPR's our cars, car repair puzzles, Word Games and Trivia asked me another I'm Jonathan Poulton now here's your host fear is.

I. Read that you found out about your emmy nomination in the middle of a dog's psychic. Yeah. So what happened was Our Dog, he's. This story he's not been himself lately He's usually very frisky, very active guy and he's just kind of yet she got the dog and so we call the psychic and it was like a two month waiting period to talk to this woman and we were like, okay, we'll. We'll. We'll try it because we take him to the doctor we tried all sorts of. Things to see we thought maybe he was upset with us. He was just bored because of quarantine and she connective with them and the things that she said that he was telling her through the phone were those are the things are actually wrong with them and we took him to the vet and so I mean I was all prepared to be a skeptic but. You know she called it. I have across passed. Out. Did He have to bark three times and then she? Got Into what She just said like when I go online within the she phrased it is is might flutter in like go into trance state and I'm sitting there. I I'm watching it and he he does he comes to his bed which he hadn't slept in in months and goes into this weird little trance state and also all while this is going on my phone's blowing up with you know. People say, Hey, man you got. A. Cool. But here's the thing. It's like dogs with the psychic pragnell. and. Waiting List and we finally got a point. Got It. So. How is how is Chico? Now he's good. He's on medication but he's good. Did the psychics say anything about your chances are of winning the Emmy? No no I try not to bring that into. About Chico. Event where you would.

I have to say my favorite kind of self deprecating humor is award. Humor. A little bit of a humble brag too. It's like I know everybody's sick of me getting nominated.

Our next guest starred on the Sitcom Third Rock from the sun and in movies like five hundred days of summer end inception he founded the online creative platform hit record and he's in the new Netflix's Movie Project Power Joseph Gordon Levitt. Alot. How's it going? Good. So I recently learned that your parents met working at a listener supported radio station. Yes. KPFK in Los. Angeles Yep even further to the left than NPR. Radio a big part of your childhood growing up I mean there was that story of knowing that they met at that public radio station by the time I was born they no longer worked there K rock was really important to me when the high school That's probably the biggest interaction I had with radio. You're acting career started when you were super young I mean at the age of five, you are getting jobs doing commercial work a local and national TV commercials for Seti Gempita, butter and cocoa puffs. Sunny Jim peanut butter as if anybody's heard of I, didn't hear about it like. With that. My line was Sunny Jim it's good. That was. That's all you need. The commercial was said in the twenties and we were dressed up like the little rascals you know with like too much pomp in our hair and it was raining. So sitting under fake rain and just marveling at the fact that they made it rain in this sound stage and then. The bit went that open the jar of peanut butter and the rain stopped and the sun came out that was the commercial. Sign Jim see Sunny Jim Yeah so There's this presumption with show Biz kids that you grow fast you mature quickly because you're at a business at a young age. At just the. Fact that the character you played on third rock from the Sun. Tommy was a old man alien trapped in a teenage body. You played I watched the show you when you were teenager. It was it was my whole adolescents thirteen to nine, thousand nine. Oh, my goodness teenagers that show yeah. Did you did you feel like you related more to the character trapped within the alien? Rather, than the teenager. Yeah I mean, both in that, it was appropriate for me to play that role in that way because part of me was precocious part of me was completely immature and a really late bloomer and you know just wondering what it'd be like to kiss a girl and. You know just normal. Normal teenager things like right. But. No wonder you've got the role it's perfect. Yeah I. Don't think it's a coincidence. Probably. And then things really took off i. mean you had huge breakout roles you became a household name angels in the outfield ten things I hate about you but third rock from the Sun. Two thousand you decided to attend Columbia University. You're studying history literature French poet. Yeah. That kind of thing. Yeah. I just wanted to I just wanted to do something more normal and all my friends were sort of heading off into the world and being like, what am I going to do and I? I think I envied that that wide open sense of possibility and so I just wanted to go to college and we'll who knows what I'll be I. Don't know I might might not keep acting I might want to do something else but it it really didn't take very long before I started missing it a lot and you know and I started. Dressing up and doing stupid things just to get. Out, that kind of need for I. Don't know exhibitionism or self expression or whatever it is that actors have inside them that yeah, makes us want to do that and you like deciding to put on a persona or character costume in everyday life year kind of more like more like nightlife like I didn't go to class that way. But you know. But but it at night if there was a wig around that, might you know accompany an accent or? Goofy Yep. Just a wig in an accent when you're going out. Totally. Normal. Right. So you knew you were like Oh maybe not French literature maybe I'm doing. against. So maybe I should look into this. Yet it was pretty soon and then the nail in the coffin was when I got final cut pro, which is. And this is for my twenty. First Birthday is like two, thousand two. I was just staying up all night editing and I I'd have papers thou supposed to write for college and I'd be saying I could write this paper or I could keep editing video and Soon thereafter dropped out of college. What were you shooting at the time? Just nothing just like. Just like I was carrying around. It's funny actually now because I, it's become the One day I i. really want to find like go and get all that footage and like put it into instagram stories because it is exactly that it's exactly that except it's like this is an instagram story from the summer of two, thousand which. There's not that many of those. You had to spend about four hours putting it together erasure. I don't know this is fine. But you know you were saying that with final cut pro and that you were kind of Beato baking what we now think of instagram stories along time ago. Also I beat I feel like this is ahead of its time you launched hit record in two thousand and five, which is an online space and you invite people to be creative and work together and collaborate on projects. That's exactly right. I mean it was a little bit before it was so easy to post stuff online and hit record just became this little mantra of mine of this like the red record button became a symbol like I'm GonNa do I'm GonNa push that button I'm going to start making stuff but this community gradually started to form there was one that I found very cathartic. So did the people making it of course? Of people with their kids and. Just. General kind of howling and screaming. Scream Dad, put up a video of you. He's there with his two toddler boys which I relate to because I have two young boys. And they're screaming. And he has his guitar, but he's not trying to cheer them up the guitar. He's just like he's leaning into how they're feeling and just like playing metal on his acoustic guitar and his boys are just screaming along with it and so that video it just felt like how we were all feeling and so like okay, let's all do this. Together I played drums. We you know there was some guitar, some vases like lots of screaming and it turned into this Kinda weird family. Scream therapy meddle song thing and. Suggest. Teams out. All right how would you feel about an ask me another challenge I very much. I'm looking forward to this. Excellent. So this our next is in honor of your famous needle drop in five hundred days of summer your dance numbers to holidays you make my dreams complete with the marching bed at a cartoon bird.

It is excellent. I intend to review in full coming up on this week set of file thank you so much to everybody search that you guys are unbelievable. We asked you all last time to send in some reviews and some ratings on apple podcast. Rob lemme tells me it wasn't the easiest thing to do. So he's suggesting a quick to to'real, Dan, Rick would you like to give quick to to'real for everybody listening? Everybody to do this today. How to give a rate and review on apple podcast? Honestly, I don't think it's that difficult. I'll try to pull it up right now. But I'm pretty sure you just hit a few buttons type review and hit send. I agree. It seems to me if you go to as Dan said apple podcasts type into the file. Of course, it comes up. If you already subscribing you just click on the icon, and there you'll see leave rating lever review, you simply press the rating reviews so seem straightforward. But anyways, I appreciate so much. What you all did sec-? We're doing this. Now, we're gonna just read it a bunch of these because they were so funny and so well written and because of all of you because all of your generosity. I'm so touched. I'm so grateful, then how high do we climb we weren't even in the top two hundred until last week. So I checked at one point over the weekend after you had mentioned how many reviews were flying in. And I noticed that we were ranked number twenty in the film and TV category. Now, remember back towards our inception. When we got that initial bump apple podcast. We were as high as number five. But I don't think as you've mentioned we had been in the top two hundred in the past year or so so you guys are unbelievable. And that's we're going to read reviews give back and thank you all from t-. Brad who said great movie potty wrote this Saturday smart. Move standardizing the length of the pod props. Louise, great reviews insight from the team get Dan a new intro gas bag. It's way too much heat for his views. He's passionate that bleeds through and his reviews. Maybe it's a term of endearment, maybe he should own it and change a segment to reflect that hot take from the gas bag or something like that. Brad, bakers, whatever fancies unbelievable. He writes about the gospel Sinophile teddy Roosevelt. I love because he is subject heading said, he don't go down for nobody. Which is great raging bull reference. Also, my buddy gray McGowan wrote Sultan of cinema fryer film. He supported pass Meri's. Listen, Rick takes the whole point is he's reviewing movies, which are not necessarily well regarded so he's doing an alternative takes. He's not doing movies that are typically loves so he liked that this one from psychedelic great. I for town provide fantastic interviews may notable film, luminaries wealth jinxed juxtaposed with the everyman reviews of your staffers shadow to rambling. Rick for keeping things dot dot dot, windy. Appreciate that this one here from cowabunga lady Sinophile here living in LA and working in the industry randomly podcast by searching Oscar race, even though I don't necessarily agree with top movies the year. I love listening to beautifully written reviews. Do really value. Opinions wouldn't have expected an ESPN podcast about films to even exist. But I'm really enjoying the sports references here and there. Can't wait to keep listening through the Oscars and beyond that one's great. Now this little two pas, let's get someone's negative. Okay. This is Michael. I love the podcast, but Adnan speaks to quickly perhaps that is the reason for falloff Baston, our as Lister brains are worn out by the speaking pace. I double check to make sure that was not speeding up the speech. That's a direct shot at Mark Simon. Who says my podcast, this podcast is only cannot do the one and a half times you kick it through fast that talks fast. I've just got to spite toward Simon Alex v subject heading past more is the glue holding altogether. I didn't have death of understanding of cinema and matching esoteric cabinet that would appeal to even those knowledgeable Cinna files. However, he also manages to convey a level of reliability that will interest even casual fans reviews incredibly refreshing, Dan, stands as a great counterbalance, Adnan. As you brings everyman perspective, the podcast is reviews have been spot on for film fans, like myself where less verse in the artists cinema, finally passports, the glue holding it all together, he's the bridge routine. Adnan standing passport displays an incredible knowledge of film. But also understanding of what drives everyday filmgoers the podcast got much better when he came on and the three perspectives really provide well rounded reviews. Okay. Let's Steph Robert stack army. He gave a former police you get Jesse Palmer's hair. Also chiming in good to see. That's obviously a pseudonym. That's obviously problem. Probably this one here. This is from a Yukon fan. Best would be podcasts. Available Dan's the man Rix, number move year was a quiet place. So he can do no wrong in my eyes. Never stop. Because you guys have will never be topped. And this is the last one here. This is I've been here since episode one. I love the subjugating king for night. This is the one that's breathtakingly mean add name was clearly made for life and TV and radio. It's really treat. We get to hear him apply. Those towns reviewing movies Natalie. This you have the chops for his knowledge and passion for film that can't be faked. This show is perfectly balanced in such a way that Virk and flirt with film snobbery, but also gives us his views. The latest superhero installment adding to that balances the everyman segment producer, Dan Stanic. His welcome cynicism. Craig's a good rhythm with Adnan's, affable, Canadian nature. However, Rick pass was not gifted with a personality being on air talent, which is fine. But I like this podcast too much. Let a detriment like this go on acknowledged if Ricky something longer than twenty to thirty seconds to say, I think it's better left unsaid. He had a story of Paracel boyfriend that they would have used torture terrorist Equiano. Whoa. I mean that is just brutal by the way. I did check. All you do is you click right review. It pops up. You have to rank us out of five stars you read a title for your post or comment, then you type your comment and you hit send so super easy. Couldn't have been pushing for. Leme suggested toiling. Okay. Great dettori. I expect all the reviews. Appreciate also much Ricky. Okay. You can handle it. Right. Yeah. Just like the let everyone know that I'm available for birthdays. And speaking engagements. Head of up our passport eighty seven on Twitter as always on Twitter, Sinophile, ESPN Instagram certain crush at there as well. Verified and posting lots of good stuff. Thanks, matthew. Mcconnahey was our recent guests on forces bombed at the box office did not do. Well. Twenty one percent rotten tomatoes. Got a d plus the cinema score is a great, dude. Thank you again for coming on Kevin hartsville, by the way, the upside still doing well number two at the box office and the sag awards were last night. Congrats supporting actress, Emily blunt Rix, number one, film, a quiet place. Dan, also too quiet place in his top ten number seven wanna say something like that. I ever a best. Supporting actress sag Ord winter was not nominated for an Academy Award. Idris elba. This happened to believe as well recently. He won the best supporting actor sag was not nominated for peace of no nation. I wanna say the authors. Somebody will correct me if I'm wrong, but Emily blood nominee for Oscar yet wins or supporting actress that hurts Amy Adams, the thought was no Regina king nominee for the sag. Maybe Amy Adams wins instead blunt wins. I still. Like, it's going to be king or Adam supporting actor by ROY Moore. Sally cannot be stopped. Not going to be thrown. Sam storey lifetime achievement award not going to happen. And I thought maybe Richard E grant would have a chance he was great could you ever? Forgive me. Not gonna happen. Hearse? Unbelievable way to go lead actor Rami Malik. That's interesting. Because now we get a little bit race here on her hands, Bradley Cooper's officially done. He was the front. Learn to invest actor as of November. And now as no chance of winning. It's going to be the Robby mollusc there's a lot of Queen fans in the academy or Christian bale and people love what he was able to do with his rendition of Dick Cheney BAFTA awards February tenth now bales. British queens, a British band. So I'm curious to see what happens with the BAFTA how that could impact the race. But that's very interesting race and lead actress Gogga's done she could use a BAFTA win February tenth, but Ellington happen. I think Glenn Close again lifetime achievement award as she wins. Best actress last night, and what does it mean for Black Panther one favorite on Sabail? Doesn't mean a ton to be honest with you 'cause green book wasn't nominated for best on samba. So if it had beaten green book than it would've said, this is a little bit more. Interesting the favorite. Also, I don't believe is up for best ensemble. So it's a nice win for Black Panther death that gives it some momentum. But I still don't think it's enough to be green book overall offer best pitcher Ricky onto opine. Yeah. I just think like you said with Black Panther it a lot of time with these best ensemble. If all the categories aren't like cohesive with the Oscars, and the sags and all the other awards, they kind of don't really mean anything, but when you have had head races. Like, you said Gaga is done Bradley Cooper's done, but the bail and Rami Malik race is gonna be fantastically. Interesting coming up, especially coming into the Baptist. We said before don't take too much stock into certain awards but other awards that are just head to head. You gotta really look into hundred percent. Also, thanks, Kathy Lee has sent me this article called Oscar so mail. There's no Oscar so icon as if there is still as an Oscar so mail this with the academy Motion Picture Arts and sciences announcing Albany's the academy shutout women of nominations in five major categories director, cinematographer, score editing and visual effects cautioned design the only category with an. All female set of nominees cinematography interesting. Rachel more simply Black Panthers. She did not get nominated for some taco, and she was nominated last year for I can't remember mudbound believe it was the Netflix film, which was fantastic half of the films nominated for best picture receive an effort rating on gender parody from grade my movie which base their scores and the percentage of women in the cast and crew a failing score means that fewer than twenty percent of the cast and crew are women of the films nominated for best picture only the favourite receiving a rating for gender parody me. That least fifty one percent. The film's cast and crew are women two other films with best actress nominee is receiving a rating as well. The wife starring Glenn Close in can you ever forgive me? Starring Melissa McCarthy's interesting to note, when it comes to the authors also related the Paul straighter was down different academy where I ever had a really funny article while the papers in which he said that it's it's an odd feeling because it's obviously, I'm grateful be nominee. But I don't need the validation the academy's tell me, I mean, it could move good movie. And he said in the case of Martin Scorsese, my good friend. He said Marty made it a priority from to finally Oscar like it really haunted him set him. And I told Marty one time if winning an Oscar is a priority than you need, some other priorities. Balls renter? Couldn't care less like whatever. Awesome. Glad I got nominated by make movies. That's an important city called the hawk Hawkins. Listen, you one anyways, you're disappointed. But who cares? This stuff. Really doesn't mean that much. So we still have more perspective like a guy like Paul Schrader. We'll have interviews on the creeks choice awards coming up in just a second. But first I want to type at a show called berry, which I'm sure many of you have heard Bill Hader and Henry Winkler, and it's excellent had a chance to dive into it. And it's eight episodes. They mentioned thirty episodes in length purpose for binge-watching. And here's a story. It is a hitman who is depressed and lonely and wants to find something different with his life. And so when he has an assignment for the mid west to go to Los Angeles, he ends up having an awakening of sorts. Here's the exact replica read here from HBO disillusion at the thought of taking down other Mark depressed, low level hitman berry Berkman seeks away out when the mid westerner reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an actor who's betting mobster's wife little berry. No that the city of. Angels may be a sanctuary. He falls this target into acting class ends up instantly drawn the community eager hopefuls, especially dedicated student. Sally who becomes the object of his affection while Barry wants to start a new life as an actor his Hayler, Fuchs other ideas, and the hitman criminal pass won't let them walk away so easily. So I thought it would be a heavy dose of satirical, comedy, really making fun of acting and acting showcases and the fact that when they have seen study, they don't do like death of a salesman they do movies. So one of the best scenes should've lasted the sags hater was nominated for best actor didn't win loss to my guy. Tony shalhoub you'll hear from momentarily, but this show the be doing Glengarry Glen Ross, we isn't her stand the scenes he was just like put the coffee down Goth is for closers ideal. Exactly ball doing the scene and Winkler just is so brilliant in the movie the show, Scooby because he's sending always acting teachers if you've ever been that one acting class in your life at any level or just imagine with these guys are like he's dead on their their pompous. They're self indulgent their manipulative, the generally cheap and a lot of his acting. I think bears a great that had gratitude the berries accord, the immortal character played at arrested development, just his certain mannerisms and just as gentle personality also a little bit Carl weathers interested about member Carl weathers is always so cheap. Yearly that Schikler still some there that bone. There's a couple of scenes are Winkler's so funny talking about how much the class costs, and the fact that these to keep paying the full amount. Even when he's in that moment when he motivates the actors, it's really inspired and really well done he himself. So that he worked with couple of acting teachers drawn even his book when you see the book, and that's exactly acting teachers book the dust jacket looked like the title hit your lines hit your marks regionalized perfect. So what I'm what I'm not surprised by how funny they get that part of what I am surprised by is how dramatic it is. And when I say dark comedy, I'm talking dark comedy. I didn't think I thought he's a hitman once actor, and that's it. It's light and fun. No, it's door. There's Chechen mobsters in here. And these guys are hilarious offbeat. But it's a violent show, and it goes to some places I was not expecting. I mean internal. Thanks, Dan, Stanford is Bill hater, I I couldn't agree more especially after watching the show, but there seems of hater resting with guilt. I mean, a few episodes he directed himself. And it's got this odd tone to it that I think is really impressive and really bold. And I would just emphasize the fact it's a comedy, but there's death dramatic edges potentially the way the season ends. I said, wow, that's pretty gutsy. What they did with it season. Two coming out this spring. We know the exact time of it. But Winkler seduction of a copy, particularly very notable. In fact, he says it went to dinner if this isn't the finest piece of poetry of ever eaten. You only a kick in the genitals. I mean, he's unbelievable this show Passmore seen berry. Ricky your thoughts on the show. The I'm a huge fan of Bill Hader back from his SNL days. I think he's one of the top performers. They've ever had on that show. And when I heard about the show, obviously, I'm immediately drawn to and like you said, you think it's going to be one way where it's gonna be. A little more light because of how hater was perceived on on L. But no, it's extremely dark at times. It's extremely daunting. And I just love the direction that they took it and I can't wait for season two. Danny check out at any point Bill haters your guy. I love Bill Hader. It's one of those where it's been on my list for a while not that I actually have a physical list that'd be weird. But a lot of people have recommended haven't gotten to it probably won't. I think I'm too far gone. But I do love ater the other Charlotta tacos marvelous, MRs Mazel, the story of this show talk show. It's been a lot of lists. I mean critics choice award winning. I laugh at the sag awards the show dollar Rachel bras. Dan, when best actress Tony shalhoub and best actor, and they want best ensemble drama. So I said all right. My wife correctly pointed out my chauvinistic tendencies when it comes to TV shows sopranos breaking bad odds, Kirby enthusiasm seinfeld's, one show, the female protagonists that you often watch. I didn't wanna go all the way back to Murphy Brown bears myself. Although Ben lines is huge. Murphy Brown guy. Ben lies right now. You think wising on the podcast Sunday's? He's watching the reboot of Murphy Brown. That's how much loves Candice Bergen as child knew he wanted to get into journalism, and that's betters right now hunker down binge-watching Murphy, Brown, rip routers back. And it was that's probably the last show that I really enjoyed with a female protagonist. But I'm all in a marvelous MRs basil, here's a story in kiss. You're wanting what it's all about setting the late nineteen fifties. The husband of MRs Mazel wants to be stand up comic. So he's obviously terrible comic because you quickly realize stealing Bob hope's jokes and going out there and bombing particularly one that he has a terrible set, and it goes back, and he tells Rachel bras care to these leaving her eases needs a new direction his life. He didn't expect his life would go this way, and she leaves and he leaves the first three minutes of the show. I'm like, okay. I can appreciate whites critically doored spectacular production design. You know, great, costumes. Great music. It feels like madmen in many ways madman was sixties fifties. I guess it's overlapping, but around that era, very true spirit. But I probably not for me like it's just not my kind of show, but then Mazel goes. Because she just got let her husband's she's she's jilted. She's furious. She goes down the stamp club. And delivers a blistering set that is shockingly profane and authentic and Lancer in prison. Because of the fact that she's using this lewd language at that. A woman couldn't do that. They're in prison. She meets Lenny, Bruce, the first great American stand up comic who gets arrested all the time. Because of that he's smoking weed and using this kind of language the way the show goes in the last ten minutes hooked, okay, now, I wanna see where the show goes. And like I said, it's a light fluffy concoction in many ways, you got plenty of candy with the production design, the costumes music, you got to wait the positive. You get it's a good day. You got Louis Armstrong. What a wonderful world you gotta Sinatra duet. I mean, by the way, accentuate the positive also used a great use in L A, confidential member the opening credits Gwynn's last I heard the song and a movie. Oh, yeah. LA confidential, but it's really darker at its root and speaking of the actors bras, ends excellent. Because again, she shows this woman who wants to be happily married. She wants to be this domestic wife, but when? She goes on stages animals at least out of her and she's using sexual graphic language. And and somebody's reminded me the favorite the favorite is this costume drama with costume dramas. Your expectations are the characters act and look way, even though they looked that way the act in a different way as cleric calls it delicious. Similarly, Mazel you're expecting these women who are like Peggy in mad men in your expecting them to be doting or submissive and all of a sudden, Alex Burston shows up many of you know, from family guy, she plays Brosnahan's manager. She's she's swears more than a David Mamat play. Like, she's unbelievable. She's this drunken sailor the way, she talks and very very very funny show lube. Let's get to my guy. He's the father, and he is tight upper crust New York Jew. Who does not have any idea that his daughters? Stand up comic. But he's doing great things. The fact he's he's almost like an actor stuck in a straitjacket. He's trying to get out of it. Sometimes obviously, I know he went three EMMY awards for his work and monk I show that. I'm mildly familiar with Lloyd didn't watch it. So I'm sure there's some aspects of Monka. The way the characters are. So like, I said upper-crust and constrained, but he's amazing. He's got such good comic timing. There's one scene where he's particularly talking to his daughter, but wishing to do with her life and finding a husband, and I mean just imagine that time you found it your daughters. Husbands laughed another reconcile. Kevin Pollock also shows up. He plays the father in law and the great David paper who I love if I David paper was in the show. David paper was and Mr. Saturday night. He was Academy Award nominee playing Billy crystal's agent. He shows up marvez MRs Mazel playing ages. Well wall, Sean is in the movie. I mean, this got a very collected cast. So I'm not surprised it's done. So on the critics, and I've enjoyed it. Now a couple episodes into season two so highly recommended if you like the nineteen fifties. If you like that era, if you like the news, if you like the acting you're wondering why the critics swooning over the show do yourself a favor and checkout. Marvelous MRs Mazel both seasons are currently available season two goes to France. And let me just tell you right now, you get Tony shalhoub in a beret, I mean, that's enough reason to watch the show as very very funny. Check. Marla MRs Mazel cleric coming up momentary Claire will echo the sentiments about marvelous missus as well right now wanna play the sound from the critics choice award. So we had max last time explaining what happened I'll give you a little bit of my rendition, obviously talked with the southwest flight. Thanks to Mark Simon who tweeted that out. I do heavily endorse them. I'm trying to watch the eagles game wall on the red carpet. Pelosi one with the red carpet unique in the sign space so t and t and Kevin Frazier like right in the middle. And I was about four spots down. I was with this German reporter who every time Akhavan who's that? Who like she had no idea anybody was like, that's you. Don't Ray insecure like to watch this show. But I'm aware of these people I've noted if it's a big star. Get him will default was three dental yelling Willem de foam. Like, no, Scott Pell because what's it like, listen, and even been lines agree with me, I touch it. Just enough to go these things I wear a tux fun. It's amusing. If I did this all the time, it'd be like a beat reporter for Dan's Knicks, the team stinks ever laugh at you anytime for your like, this sucks. You just yelling at people. Kevin Pollack Kabbalah. Can I have a word? No, I'm begging Kevin Pollock for thirty seconds of his time. That's what this is like, which is why Tony shalhoub now will forever be my guy because Tony shalhoub to the big ones that TNT and access Hollywood. And I told me quick turtle. Tony Celo in the moment. You listen to the interview. I'm so furiously myself. I didn't ask him about the Man Who Wasn't there. But we got big night in. We got quick change in my dad's favorite one of my dad's comedies Bill Murray. Outstanding dance still appalled ahead in my top five Bill Murray counties of all time, you'll hear salutes reaction, she'll she'll only kidding quick changes. Awesome. So that was great. We got Burnham again Elsie Fisher eighth grade. Just for Dan. I'm Rick abo-. By the way, is like six nine you stand at a red carpet interview back in may for ESPN for July. Okay. Cool. And also Ben got him on his podcast the actor who plays one of the villains in black klansman, the Finnish actor Yasser Pocklington. He is really. Good on the lines denser, check a Benz podcast on podcast one. Subscribe rate review. He tells us how much he loves fly fishing. Any was also big entrepreneurs. So he just is acting on the side. And Spike Lee did not think that he was an actor. You'll hear the whole interview that I asked him about with the dish with spike, the Asper pocketed a very interesting guy. Check it on the line stands. So critics choices kind of humbling after that max picked it up. Obviously one inside embarrassed ourselves right around and fond after movie stars hopefully, get racy on the pot as well. But here is the assembly of actors that was able to talk to on the red carpet beginning with Marlins, MRs Maizels, Tony shalhoub. Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete glade since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice quite some nights. He even slept in toppy skates p tractive and practiced until one day when he was forty seven p realized he just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash. But then you heard how DIKO proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out. The great Tony shillue. Marvelous MRs Mazel, what an incredible show to be part of. And you're so funny in that show. How did this opportunity? I come about. Wow. I. I got a call from my representation, and they said you wanna read the script. It's comedy that takes place in the late fifties. And I just love that period. And so I said, yes, and it, and they said it was, you know, by the team that Gilmore girls, and my wife and daughter were devoted to the Gilmore girls. And so I read it I loved it loved the character. I got on the phone with them with Amy Sherman palladino, Dan Palladini, and and it was just kind of a no brainer. There was I had just moved to New York that year in the show. They said was gonna shoot in New York. So it seemed like the right the right thing. It's amazing watch is say, well, how could this not be huge hits? It's funny. It's heart warming. It's charming. Did you have that sense onset you ever have that sense? It's going to be successful. Yeah. I always have that sense tension. I'm with. But this time I wasn't so wrong all the cast members. And they're all great who's at the most fun to play off of. They're all dreaming. I guess I couldn't pick one just a great unsolvable, Rachel. They're all great on a personal big nights on my favorite movies. I love that movie so much. I think it's the best. We about food is the best way ever brothers. Tell me any you have about that story and work with dealing to cheat. Although Stanley spin friend for a long time, I did a did theater with Stanley even before years before big night in. That was kind of a kind of a game changer that, you know, working on that movie. So lot of he was he and his cousin who wrote it. They were first time screenwriters he and Campbell Scott directed it. First time directors so. We were we just didn't know how it was gonna you know, how it was going to track out there in the world and people seem to love it. And it's held up over the years. And it was. It was just it was great plan. Brothers the music food. And I love that last shot. You know, so times directors are so busy just a wide shot. Two brothers making eggs you say so much. It's so it's such a beautifully rod singer. Yeah. It is. Although I have to tell you the only the only funding part of that was we did that that one long take maybe about six times. In those eggs were really really hot because they were coming right out of the pan usually when in normal life. You put something on a plate, you give you give a chance to cool, but we had to like just dig the forks in there and after about the sticks. Take our mouths were pretty much. You know, shredded for you. I love the way quick change. I know it's a listen my dad, and I loved that movie. So the way your care to keep saying bluff, Tony, maybe because you know, South Asian family. We can relate to this guy. Right. Middle Eastern kids beginning was that. While we've been there before. But tell me memories have pictures. We always say bluff Tony kids. So funny. Yeah. That was that was my first real movie. I think or at least the first movie that I wasn't cut out. And no seriously. And yeah, it was it was let me write my own dialogue. You know? I didn't have any lines in the script. It just said and the cabbie speaks. So I wanted I didn't want just. Tumble. And you know, so I actually wrote out a gibberish language, so air Bakir speaking, I know, but that that allowed me to Pat my part because they once I started talking, you know, I could just go as long as I wanted great. Tony Barbas, MRs basil. Thanks so much. Hey, great feedback with Bo Burnham success with eighth grade and Elsie Fisher. I was a huge fan of film back when it came out in July and Elsie Chan stucco, I I'm talking to you. What's been this ride in like for you the best? I mean, I love the film so much love being in it. And being able to champion it around. These words shows and everything is just spinning Granville craziest thing, you know. My producers a thirty two year old white male. I got another push three zero white male. They go how in the world. Did they both figure out how to do this Elsie know how to be able to convey this? My wife's admits because it's the worst part of a girl. I'm telling you eighth grade is the worst was there for you. Oh, yeah. I mean, I think just public school, especially eighth grade might be the worst year because I think you finally become self aware. Right. No. But I mean, I don't know there's something about public school men. Just it's like a war zone. But we talked to you back in July before the field came out. And I was saying upgrade it was your relation. Gary Shalin of the fact, he gave you vice films. I keep thinking of you. I think Shaly now because it's mentors can help people and you're going to be mentor for others as well. Yeah. Hope so. Yeah. Gary was incredibly kind to me. And the kind of see showed me as kind as I've tried to pass on not just in the most powerful thing. He did as quote, unquote, mental treat me like men t try to treat me as an equal. That's something. I did try to do with her. You know, the most powerful lessons, I learned from older people treating me at an eye level and not condescending to me or not trying to take into their wing that great line about doing the research for this. And you're like if somebody check my computer that guy watching videos trying to research, but that's how you got the dialogue. Right. Yeah. That was. Yeah. That's the way to do it no other way than like camping out in front of a middle school. So I'm not going to do that and Elsie for you. What's been the craziest part of you? And you come here. Do you listen when who's the actor you wanna meet who's the direct you wanna talk? What movie are you most excited to talk about God? Well, I would love to be Gaga still. I was trying to meet her at the Globes. But understandably shoes pretty busy. I dunno. I Timothy two seconds ago. Those I mean pretty Gucci or you just enjoying the ride is bus leather movie. Are you is this networking just enjoying yourself? It's networking. I just oh my family when the nominations came out, and I'm just trying to transition into stable position of power. So I never have to see them again. Beaubourg Elsie Fisher. Thanks. So I was gonna know you as the bad guy from black clans pronounce your improperly four, we get it. Right. Y'all spent back so Yasser this. And this is an amazing performance you gave. And I think for a lot of people American audiences are going to say, well, I don't know who this guy is and watch their finish actor playing gay K K guy. How did this all come about? I just got a call from my agent, saying Spike, Lee way, he's auditioning for his new new film. We don't really know what it is. But we're gonna send you to scenes. Learning and walk go in the room and do your best. I had no idea what the story is by from those two scenes, you could tell that. It's a movie about KKK, but you have no back store. You have no explanations of what you're doing. So I walk in the room. And spite looks at the paper looks at my name that has a lot of dots. Let 'em louts and goes. Where are you from? Finland and he goes Finland and kinda just sinks back into his thing. And write some notes and we start doing the do. Go running the scene with the casting director and midway through the first scenes spike jumps out of the sofa and goes all Hala, you're not from Finland from Alabama as starts laughing. And I'm not I'm not sure if it's a good laugh or that like if like completely blew it. And my southern accent is completely stupid and and ridiculous. And and then came Coleman the casting director Jesper that's a that's a good thing. That's a positive thing. Keep just eat going. So we run the couple of scenes and spike goes Finland sit down. Why haven't I ever seen before? I've I've never worked in the states. I'm nine from Finland and he's kind of like scratching his head going. What's going on kind of a thing? And we speak a little bit about Finland and Jerez is is in Finland Hawaii American racism, and and then then I walk out the room thinking, it kind of went pretty well. And later on spike told me that that as he was, you know, actors come in and out he had a list of actors there was a name credits. Name Brits name credits. All of a sudden, there's a name with lots of dots zero credits. He had no idea who I am. And he just goes how did this guy get kit in get in through that door? All right, talk, rich, more and Clark Spencer. Ralph breaks internet Mike seen it three times. While the perks of your kid. These are good good kids. You guys when they a ward Zootopia as well, rich. What was the biggest challenge of making a sequel? I know how challenging it can be how do you top the resort was. So beloved, what was it for you guys? Well, I think the the hard thing that the sequel is making it enough like the first one that people recognize the characters and the tone of it. But not so close that it feels like it's a rehash for the first movies. So it was always kind of trying to thread that needle. It's always a challenge. Clark trying to get jokes for the audience or the parents and for the kids. This is a bunch of great jokes from Eleni ills. How do you find that fine line is is there a one to one ratio? Okay. One for the kids. We're gonna fart joke at a burp joke, right one. Now Zola highbrow, you know, he's really a science necessarily. But I think you know, rich and fill team together on the first record Ralph and unto topa do such a great job of trying to find that humor that can go at both levels enough that the kids will enjoy. But also started the adults are going to enjoy too. So that when they go to the film, the realizes for them, also so. Described was how Emily Bronte used to work. Yeah. Whether you know high for joke one burp joke, and then something will highbrow my seven year old is trying to figure out what's EBay using. I wanna EBay. No, it's not it's not a thing. His dad when are we going to go to EBay, it looked so cool there keep repeating that line evily, IBO know, there's no such thing. Dad wanna see the boy, what are we gonna go there? Just to thought with these actors are so good at the voices, Johnny rally particular. I mean, how do you find an actor has that residents these such genuine charm? Well, I I mean, I've been a fan of John's forever. You know, since he did the movie Hardaway, and I just think he brings humanity to everything he plays, whether it's a very dramatic role or a very silly role. It's like I always want his characters to have what they want. You know, there's just something about him that he is. Empathy just comes through in every character. Especially right. Let's PT Anderson moves he's always genial just like magnolia feel sorry for the guy. Just love him is my favorite part of magnolia, reg Clark. Thank you. Thank you. We do not have production as of yet for up in the clever. We'll get that at some point there. Atkins kind of to join us right now, by the way, clear getting good buzzes. Well here apple podcast. So if you want to tell the Claire army to chime in I've got sorta army people were like, hey house rate love-love, Adnan Eclair report back and forth. She's gonna get addition ending. I've spent countless hours the other here late night Saturday nights, which probably sounds totally bad. But yeah. Yes, we have we spent a lot of time together. We've we have had our fair share conversations. So I let you know ROY lunch. You bought destroyer you inside the coal Kidman movie, which Karen Kusa is online checkout podcast one prevents podcast. But in my review, the film, I said it felt like one of these speaking of late night starry night. Like late night cable thriller. You come across. It was in nineteen ninety eight. What did you think of destroyer? It was I I feel really bad for Nicole Kidman because it clearly is a role that the makeup and the hair and the executive and the fish. I mean, you think this is this is supposed to be an award running role the movie it self is so bad, and it's so dark that you can't even get behind it as a you don't get behind her. You don't get behind any of characters. It's just avoid it. It's not good felt that I know it's a female directors while but like excessive violence against women violence. It's so brutal. It was hard to watch. I don't know who this appeals to tough one marvelous, MRs Mazlum episodes into. Season two. Now, you told me early on listen, I know you don't watch TV shows you're going to like it. You should watch. It. Why do you love it? So much marvez Mazel complete opposite of destroyer and that way that you can't help. But feel good watching it. And it does it has this beauty beautifully shot. And it's New York the nineteen fifties in the colors, and the costumes all that is wonderful. But Rachel Brosnahan is just hilarious. I mean, she's she is connect- this Connecticut energy that she that she has and then the Amy Sherman palladino who you know, is the creator of the series who did Gilmore girls and everyone just loved, you know, the relationship in that between the mother and the daughter, and you see then all the relations of the show with the fast talking and the quick little one liners, and if you don't like it, I just I don't underst-. I don't understand why you wouldn't like it. I think male or female, I would say, you know, it tends to be I see a female driven audience. But I think if a boyfriend or husband sets and watch this thing that's pretty funny. I don't think it should dissuade people all the show of the female comic trust. There's. Alive for both genders depreciate. I'm glad cler mentioned the style passage appreciate constant steady camp. She's right. Because they're emphasizing the quick of the cameras similarly constant energy. Like, it's always moving. I'm like these study shots there elaborate. I mean, the cast they do take take visit play at times. Well, and as you said to me e drug a little bit for in the and the first first few episodes. But then when you've got the the Lenny Bruce character, and he got Tony shillue. And you've got all these little quips that really bring together that it's it's not just one story light. I mean, there's multiple storylines happening at once you can follow you're interested in anything. They do that incredibly well season two or what are you have this time for in the RIC flair? So we're at the point in the year where there's not a lot of movies theaters. So, you know, you're you're scrolling your Amazon, your Hulu your net flex, and you've probably come across the Body Guard recently on Netflix, not to be confused with the nineteen Ninety-two films starring Kevin Costner, Whitney Houston, which of course, was wonderful as well. And it's own right. But they have nothing to do with each other. So. The first person to recommend the show to me was actually Joey Galloway, huge Sinophile. Gotta get him on. Yes. Shocking. But he likes he loves crime thrillers. And he said you'll like it six easy. No big deal. So the shows originally aired in England, and it was the country's highest rated show since doubt Naby. So it's been a huge huge hit. They haven't announced that there's going to be a season two yet. But it's inevitable. And if you're a game of thrones fan, you will recognize star Richard Madden who played rob stark in the B O series. And just last month. He won the Golden Globe for best actress TV drama. So if you saw that you're going, well, what show is this? I haven't heard of it. You know, who is he I wouldn't have. I don't think the shows about the acting -sarily. I think it's about the the plot in the crime. And he plays war veteran. David bud who finds work as a bodyguard in the London police service. He is assigned to protect the home secretary. Julie monta, Hugh who is an extremely controversial politici-. Shen? I think we can all relate to that in America. And she has plans to introduce really invasive surveillance in the country, and the a lot of colleagues agree with a lot of the public disagree with this and David, bud. As her bodyguard is really torn between protecting her, but also his own beliefs, which don't there Joan agree with hers. So the first fifteen minutes of the show is one of the most exhilarating opening scenes to a TV show or movie I've ever seen if you are not hooked in the first fifteen minutes that this is clearly just not you're gonna so I I say that. So you wanna stick with it? And the character David very similar to carry Mathis of homeland if you watch that and Claire Danes very troubled a lot of demons that they're trying to work through and they're probably not in the right job should have worked through those demons, and I will say you have to suspend your disbelief because show can feel a little bit outrageous at times. So don't go in thinking. This is exactly how. What happens in politics, and this is what you see on it everyday basis and the show has stirred up some controversy for stereotypes. I don't wanna go into that for spoiler alert. But I think you will understand what I mean once you get through the tripping racial stereotyping, racial stereotype, bigger engineer center, typing away. And and so I think the issues we have in our country. I think they were a little bit exacerbated from the British perspective. But if you're a fan of political crime thriller like homeland, Jack Ryan or even house of cards. I think the shows Friel give us work refined bodyguards available on it's on Netflix, also successes and it's six minutes. So it doesn't get for you. Can you can definitely Benjamin weakened Rick because we're of the show. I was not. But I'm interested now aware of it having clicked on it. The fact Clermont Bruce ball, except the fact there's a Brexit movie. Curly Bill, watch Brexit. It's my watch because I will watch anything. Been cumberbatch. Then I also saw I I mean you've already reviewed at the basis of sex as you correctly. How Armie hammer playing Marty? He's impossibly handsome and he's like six five five. And it's just it's a lot. But would you would you think I review is accurate, which is that listen, it's an ice January movie. But it's cliche ridden, take Monte Graham question good older audience that doesn't know whole lot about it. I'd rather watch our BG, right? The documentary. No more. This is just one section of her life. Right. So it's not you're not going to think about next what for me Clair's? Always great though. Thank thank you. All right. Thanks checking peaching seniors made his way in here. I want to call them are former boss know, if like the we's it's taken a more active role here, though PG I feel still like Sheppard shots. Fires here. I think PG was always listening. But I feel like Louise is listen Lewis and last week's kidding. You literally took the apple meeting we had and then disgusted here audience.

He simply tax which is the funniest review of Beale street is is a plea this, of course, can we'll have to bleep is a little bit. But he goes if Bill streak could talk it would say this is boring. Can you tell your man berry Jiang the concept of pace? I mean to all of his films have to be drawn character portraits. I know the source material from James Baldwin, a brilliant writer, poet sheds light on so much souls lost the industrial. In complex and a broken system that feeds that complex. But my God, I grew beard watching that film, and it wouldn't in clean-shaven. It took thirty minutes to repeal the next plot point from Tisch discoveries pregnant, the audience finding the fine and got arrested moved very little to make me care, but the leaves other than they are beautiful to look at for that takes place in New York.

So again that's Friday February fifteenth at revolution hall in Portland. Oregon seven PM tickets are on sale now get them at listen up, Portland dot com. And thanks, I'm Jesse thorn. It's eye. Stereotyped goes usually that there are character actors and starts a character actor can show up in a couple of scenes, maybe even five minutes, and in that one moment on screen may make the film. That's the kind of thing that my guest tone children can do. Well, a star. Of course, you build the whole movie around TV show their relatable, usually charming and kind of vulnerable, and my guest Tony shalhoub can do that too. He's a veteran of both the big and small screens. He's had unforgettable parts of movies like Barton Fink then in black quick change. He starred in movies like big night TV shows like wings. And of course, the hit detective series muck these days, he's a regular on the Amazon show. The marvelous MRs Mazel, it's a drama set in the late nineteen fifties. Rachel Brosnahan plays the title character midge Mazel when the series starts out midge is a housewife living in Manhattan who puts her. Old life behind her to take up stand up comedy. She splits with her husband takes her kids and moves back in with their parents. And in fits and starts her stand up career takes off my guest, Tony shalhoub plays a voice, man. Midges dad role. That's gotten Tony a handful of awards, including an EMMY nomination the show's second season just launched in it midge is still living with her family. Her mother rose has moved out of the apartment. She fled to Paris. And it I it hasn't really sunk in for Abe after all rose has a big party coming up back home. But in this scene, we're about to hear it finally dawns on him. Are you kidding me? Mama moved to parents what? Ridiculous. You hear? What you just said. What you just told me mama told you she was moving to parrot. I never said that. I don't feel like I have a life peer everyone in everything that I have ever counted on has let me down, and you said, okay. No. I should lamb was. Okay. And it was brief honestly couple who don't listen, not true. You don't listen to anyone not true? I don't feel like I have a lifestyle beating that. Sometimes I tune people out, but mostly because they rarely have anything useful or interesting to say Ansel what have crossed and drawers and her perfume is gone. Wishes things where they go and guessing Paris. What was she going to wear to the party tonight? You notice this you sleep right there live here too. You didn't notice either her husband or her closet way more than I am. Tony shalhoub. Welcome to bullseye. It's great to have you on the show. Thank you. Nice to be. I saw you wince at your character saying he doesn't listen to other people mostly because they don't have anything interesting to say. Sounds a little Larry Ghent, I suppose. I mean, one of the funny things about your character on this show is I think the show is not about your character. Your characters a secondary character Osho characterised show. Right. And in a lot of shows like this, especially funny ones, which shows very funny. It would be fine to let the protagonist have the journey, right? Like the protagonist gets to go on a journey. Everybody else has a funny thing about them that the audience recognized we support that protagonists, you know, archives. Oppose in your character is changed a lot in two seasons of the show. Yeah. It's a very it's rare for for series for a character in series television. Really? Because as you say normally, you're you know, you get hired. And then you're kind of you're somewhat limited to what you're being called on to to do. And we'll what purpose you serve in for actors that can be frustrating at times because you you're the guy that does this or you're the sort of stupid guy, or you're the, you know, the Larry or whatever it is. And you get kind of confined or constrained into playing two colors three if you're very lucky, and I been fortunate in in this case in particular that, you know, they're they're just. My character happens to be in a inflation his life where he's in is in transition like the, and I think it's because of of the transition that midges in my daughter is going through all her changes are impacting all of the people around her in. We're not just when we're not just stuck in our in our little mode. I was watching the first episode of the second season earlier today where you and your daughter travelled to Paris, and you're wearing an overcoat a Brown overcoat with a blue check that. If they had just showed me that overcoat. I'd be like, yeah. Okay. How many years is the contract for like? Yes. I get to wear that overcoat. Yes. Sold. Yeah. And that that speaks to this whole idea that that you know, this. I I like I love this idea that we're you know, we're in the fifth late fifties. I just it's I guess the forties and the fifties have always been really good. Your those good decades for me in terms of playing characters and especially today because I think we all need as viewers, and as certainly factors a respite from present day craziness. And what this the other thing that this affords us is this, you know, there are no cellphones in this show there. No computers. I mean, the computers are the size of this room. You know, there's no. We're low tech were super low tech. And I just find that. So refreshing. I'm Jesse thorn. You're listening to bullseye. I'm here with the actor Tony shalhoub. You were the star of monk for many Shays ins, this won't be news to you. I said my sounds familiar. Yeah. Which was a detective procedural on USA comic detective procedural in which your character was the brilliant genius. Detective who in part his genius detecting was colored by his obsessive compulsive nece. And I really think it is one of the best of this kind of show that has ever been made. It is so hard to make show like this. That is pleasant to so many people that also is sharpened specific and so on and so forth. You know what I mean? Like, it sort of defined what the USA network evens to some extent still is today. But like it's about an incredible specificity, and especially in your performance think and I wonder what it was. When it came to you. And how it came to you? To pilot had been it was first ABC for a number of years, and was kind of languishing there, the, you know, the with a lot of these things, you know, you all has to kind of fit together you have to have the right person in the right at the right time. And you know, that script was just was just not getting any traction. And then I think an executive was departing ABC and going over to USA and asked to take this property and see if they could develop it and that was fine. And then and then I believe it was ABC. I mean, I'm sorry. I believe it was at USA for a year before it came to me, you know, number of people had they had approached a number of different actors at both networks and some actress at approach them, and it just it just never would I even think Michael Richards. I heard was circling it for a while or they were circling. And I you know, I just it was just fortunate. My manager at the time was reading the pilot for another client of hers. It was she was actually reading it for the character of Sharona assistant. And then why she was reading it. She thought of me. And so sent it to me in the I had never heard of it. I didn't know anything about it in and I met with the network and the writers and we were off to the races. And we had to you know, I was the first one attached. So they asked me I mentioned that I would like to be involved as a producer too. So I could have some input voice. And so they asked me to read with people. You know, addition additioning people for Sharon Stottlemyre, and all the other regulars. In which I was happy to do in. That's how we put it on the other. What did you think about it? When you I thought. Well, when I first read it, I didn't really respond to it. Because I didn't I thought it was good. But I didn't see my way into it. And I called my manager. And I said that I said, look, I I I get what you're I don't get. How how's this me? And she. Very subtle. And she said, you better read it, and he should read it again because this is more you probably want to admit. And so I did. And I read it a second time, and and it started to become clear and. You know in the truth is the script that I read the pilot script is I remember there's a long time ago. Okay. But the script I read was it wasn't really the pilot that we wasn't exactly the pilot. We shot. It was written more. It was broader. It was written. I think it originally was conceived morals like almost like inspector clue so thing except with those d it was brought her comedy, you know, in that was the part that I felt was was was not a good fit for me. And why spoke to my manager about this? And then she said, well, you should sit just sit down you can sit down with the writers and express this. And you know, tell them what it is about it that it works for you. And how you would like to have them change it. And maybe they will. And and that's exactly what I did. And they were. Then tastic they were open. And and I said, look, I love comedy. But I think we should you know, maybe tone down the really really broad stuff and let the comedy come out of the guys pain and out of the guys problem. In. And also you have to remember we're talking about a time when we did this right after nine eleven not should not long after nine eleven so culturally. I think we entered a new level we were entering an age of anxiety of hiring Ziobro, which this character. I don't I mean, certainly the show the script and the and the idea was conceived before nine eleven as I said it laid around for years, but. Came to came time to actually put it on do it and put it on the air people were, you know, I think feeling they we're we're all in a bit of a state of. What now, and you know, how fragile is it all and so we enter we kind of enter the the mindset of this character how he's been living his entire life really until he met his wife and got better. And then she died, and then he got worse. So, but then we were entering also at the same time. We were we knew that we were on a slippery slope because we're dealing with OCD, which is a very real and tragic kind of debilitating disorder. And so you don't want to send that up too much you want to honor the people who have it. So we had to you know, we just were kind of like holding our breath that it was going to be received by that. By those people are you know that community. In the right way. And do it in do it in a way that. We want what we were trying to do really was to sort of distinguish ties the disorder in because the character had so many good qualities and was so talented in so many ways and could make all these gigantic contributions to society, you know, but it, but maybe just getting out the door taking fifteen minutes was would be funny. You know, but we did we I think we the writers did a really good job and else the whole creative team because you know, in capturing the tone, we found that sweet spot, and we got a lot of Harry positive feedback from people who suffered from the disorder or people who had family members who did or even doctors, I get letters from psychiatrists and psychologists and people say, you know, I've referenced your your show in our book in my book that I'm writing about. You know, mental illness. Oh my God. It was it went way beyond what we intended. Yeah. I mean, I think that the challenge the fact that the challenge that the character faces is what leads to the resolution and met the the challenge in the pain inherent, and the challenges real makes the hopefulness of it, you know, which is fundamental to this kind of TV is that like part of what you're offering is that the problem will be resolved. So it's comforting in that way. And so the fact that you know, that you will get that comfort. But that you will get it from something that actually feels like it might mirror pain that you might have or fear that you might have exactly can because we all I think we all do many many people do to a degree. You know, we have these kinds of obsessive compulsive tendencies. But but or we just get fixated on things or. We, but many of us have ways of dealing with it in coping with it in filtering it so that it's not as hot as to rest of the world. And we don't voice or demonstrate these kinds of things were monk doesn't have that filter. He just says it and does it and feels it and and demonstrates it. Even more from the great Tony shalhoub when we come back from a quick break still to come. He'll tell me where and why it gets the drive to make art at bullseye for maximum fun dot org. An NPR.

Do your worst movie thousand clowns Jason Robards only about fifty times. It's the reason I became an actor. And that was that was that was that was at a time when I was in high school when you know, you couldn't we didn't have you know, VHS, and there wasn't any of that. When you saw a movie, you waited a year. It was on TV waited another year for it to come around on TV. And maybe and I was devoted to that film. And I it was it was it was it really moved the needle for me. Now when you say house in clouds made you want to become an actor. I need to movie about Jason Robards plays a moderately unsuccessful comedy writer who needs to get a job because he's responsible for taking care of his teenage son knew his nephew two sisters. Yeah. Sister left. Yeah. And so he is basically facing this choice in his life. Which is he has the opportunity to get a job on something that does not meet his artistic standards, which you know, are difficult to pin down. Maybe because he's a comedy guy. You know? And he is struggling to accept the responsibilities of adulthood, it's a he knows that he has to. And he knows how important it is. Because there's this kid and he's falling in love as well. And it is. Is very very painful for him in difficult for him to be Frank with himself about that. And do what he has to do 'promise. Yeah. And I know a ton of comedy people who love this movie. I've had many a conversation with longtime in now. Colbert late show writer Brian stack about it. For example, a real funny guy. And I think for a lot of comedy people. It is a deeply difficult film to watch because it asks them to confront. Their own complicity in the kind of irresponsibility of creating art, especially completely frivolous. Art. With their life. So you saying that you make you want to become an artist and. It's a movie about the horrors and pains that come from the self centeredness of wanting to be exactly yeah. That's how sick I am. Where did you where did you first? See it. Did you? I see it on TV. Yeah. I I grew up in Green Bay. Wisconsin was I think it was in high school when I first saw it. And I just remember being so struck by it in those performances, and and just the whole message behind the whole idea about it behind you don't in a sense, you know, that that's always that's always the dilemma of the creative person. I think you know, it's it's what big night was about. And you know, that that's sort of balancing act that you have to that you have to deal with between art and commerce. It's that's you know, one can rarely exist without the other. And I it's a it's a ongoing challenge. Yeah. I mean, not even just art and commerce, but also the the solipsism and self regard. That's required to think. Oh, I could make things and that could be my whole life. You know, the amount that you have to dedicate yourself to being an artist to be an artist, you know, and the kind of presumptive -ness of that and the tension that that creates with your responsibilities to others to your community to. And that's I think why I whenever I watched thousand clowns I cry like, it's like for whatever. But I think it's it's it's even beyond that. Because what you're talking about. Is it implies a choice a decision kind of an intellectual decision. And in for my my experience. You know, the reality is is that. That certainly that's there. But you know, the part part of the thing about creativity and the pursuit of arts is, you know, there's a compulsion there too. You know, people can't help it. They have to do it. They I mean, real, you know, the really great people the good people, and even maybe not so good people who just have to compulsion. I'm not sure. But there's a thing where it's it's it's less of an that's less of intellectual decision is just I need to do something. I I need to create this. I need to do it. And that's their you're screwed. Because then you then you can't stop when if you do stop, then you're just setting yourself per life of a different kind of torture. Well, Tony we're at a time. I didn't even add. I mean, you've got him nine brothers and sisters. I didn't even mention it. This whole time. I've just gotten started. Normally that would have been the whole hour.

So let's get started where here today with Jim He is a director, producer and drummer. We work together on a couple of projects Turner with editor they're directing to stuff's we'll talk about that. He's got a long career with lots of different stuff feature films. And Theater, and acting. So talk about that today. Thanks for doing this gym. This is awesome. Thank you John. Thanks for having me on. Pleasure to be here. Yeah. This is cool. So. Let me just start my first question, which is, how did you know that you wanted to get into the? Film and TV industry. I've been performer as a little kid. I can remember dressing up like a cowboy outfit and singing fever grandmothers. Monin why but I just remember like snapping and going back and forth and singing that song. and I. Always performed and I. I was a drummer. All through elementary school and high school and still to this day coca so i. Thought I was going to stay more on the music side and Got Into. Started at Georgia state as a music major, and then I switched to theater when a friend of mine convinced me to take an acting class in college. So A hadn't really. Done any acting professionally or classes or anything prior to my Freshman Year of College Poker And from there, you know I definitely got the bug in was an every play that could possibly be in in college I'm. told the story recently of. I auditioned for Evita my my. School was doing Vida and the professor who was going to direct the show was like you know you'd be perfect for Shea you. Great. You gotta come out you gotTa do this audition and memorized the whole the whole album I listened to it all every song every word every part and got out there and. At the end of my audition, he's like you know. Maybe, musicals aren't for you. You should consider we've got a comedy coming up in the spring. Why don't you do? And that was it. You know I you know he was honest enough to tell me back and saying I knew. And then got into doing comedic theater. which led us to forming a whole world theatre back in one thousand, nine, hundred, four. Okay. What was that? Like was a what was that theater like what are you doing original plays or so whole world theatres was founded as an Improv comedy. Club. Gutting David Webster came in from second city. He had taught some classes in Atlanta. and. He said, you know I'm thinking about moving Atlanta and starting this theater company will you help a put it together so? I was still a senior in college and A. Big In the theater there so I helped recruit some people sign up for the very first classes and he. Came in and started teaching these classes and. The That were in those very first classes kind. It became the core acting group for this Improv show. And this is ninety four, the feeder still they're still going strong. It's in Atlanta and midtown Atlanta. On? Current Street. We did. We did plays as well. We did long form Improv. We kind of did everything. and. Realized we wanted we wanted to be on TV. and. So we had this big plan of moving to L. A. and You know renting a fear there with me and webster and another one of the actors have gone out and we'd scouted always locations and thought we were gonNA move and and then I kind of had this idea of just like I don't want to move. I want to stay here I know everybody here here we just form. Cute we just shoot around show right. So I had I was working as a p. a. more or less for a woman named Fran bursts. WHO's kind of one of the founding Atlanta Georgia film people I worked on a documentary does she mostly do documentaries or harass you do other stuff? Okay. Yeah. We were mostly doing documentaries and corporate work and Fran was kind of a legend in this town and everybody knew her and I guess in Ninety, seven, ninety eight. I asked her. Can you help us put together a show? So she reached out to some different technicians and again, Jack Frost who was head of. Turner studios or something over Turner's Theo's Jackie men and. Put together a crew and we found somebody needs to help invest in bought all our own equipment and we basically taught ourselves how to shoot our own TV show. Yeah in. Kind of one of those things where no one's GonNa give it to you. So we're just GONNA, figure it out and and we we sold our first show to Turner South and they'd launched the network you know with that with that new show and kind of helped us all star TV careers and did you shoot at Turner? No we shot it at whole world theatre. We turn the small theater on Spring Street we had four cameras we had a Switzer we would. We would shoot a live Improv show and then in between live segments, my day job was going out and shooting hidden camera spots with the cast. So we would go out we should all these hidden camera spots during the weekend I would edit them together and we would air them on TV's in between the lives. The live scenes occur. So you'd get a live scene we'd shoot, and then we'd air the hidden camera piece and then allies in back and forth. All Front of a live audience and we did it. Did five shows a week you know. a couple of questions with the first one was shooting in front of a live audience at that. Mess with the audio at all did you boom mics or did you have lab Mike's Joe or off you? We all wore labs. We all treat them up like crazy i. mean you know this was a very physical group like right we're all over the stage jumping and beating each other. Quick changes and everything. So yeah, I mean the audio was was pretty darn good for A. A small. Feeder House that we just Kinda did around thing we had. Young. Up and coming audio guy who'd probably never barely had any professional work and he's got him Jay Tyson who I've seen traveling all over the world doing audio. Now it's like we all cut our teeth there but him and we got good because we had to. You know it was very competitive for us and what was the name of the show on Turner Turner South. It was called last hour live. Because it was going to air eleven o'clock, Saturday night or something like that. So. I got there in two thousand and five and worked on Bush whacked and southern living presents, but I don't. Ninety Ninety, eight I, think. When the thing was just I started. Okay. Yes. All right. So Did you do some other stuff for Turner South or other TV shows after that or would you go from there? Well from there we We took our we cut a pilot together of our own sort of mix and match media, and we shopped it around and sold it to castle rock. So. We're we're stupid little punks with big egos in you know you're sitting in the office of the president of CASTLEROCK got in Glen. Paddock couldn't have been a nicer guy. You know you hear Christopher guest down the hall you hear all these people like, what am I doing? Here this is the guy who put Seinfeld on TV he's got. And he said, Hey I. Love the show. We're going to shop it around, and so we did and we took it to Fox and. I can't remember the guy's name, but he was like. The First Reality Show TV network guys. Anyway he bought it and we created a pilot for Fox and. They spent a ton of money and brought in. A lot of big names direct it Joe runners and things like that, and it was terrible. I, it wasn't whole world theatre I'm trying to remember but without seeing any names that brought in a show runner who really just didn't get it ochre and. It just became an awful mess. It was like if Carol Brunette was bad. In mixed with It just it was just awful. That was like two thousand, and after that we'll sort of dispersed. We decided that you know it's not going to get bigger than that. You're not gonNA, make a half a million dollar pilot for. Fox again. So we all. Of. Went on our ways and half the ACTORS WE'RE OFF TO LA in some to New York and I stayed in Atlanta and thought old. Working here in production let me see if I can't build something for myself here. Right So for years, I was friends with an actor named Tony Shalhoub he was monk. In who's in wings I mean he's been in big night. He's been in hundreds of movies and Tony and I became friends through his sister Jane who was a schoolteacher and Atlanta, and you know he came to Atlanta and he saw some of our whole world shows we actually drug him onstage be onstage with us and he performed. and. Then in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine, my friends, and I were over at Luke's house and Tony's wife and her sister were wanting Tony direct movie and he was. In my wife wants to make movie and she was directed and. You know but I don't want to fund it. So so I was like hold on I have a perfect person So connected Tony with an investor friend of mine, and we raise money for a movie that called made up that Tony's wife Brooke Adams, and her sister Lynne Adams wrote. But they needed to raise money. So I said. I got this. Phone. So I called my friend, Bob who live back in Atlanta Bob. Carpet mobile and I sitting across from. Tony in this room and I grabbed the phone I say Bob. It's Jim. Hey listen. I'm at Tony. SHILLUE HOUSE IN LA. When are YOU GOING TO BE IN LA next year? He's like I'll be there in a week said, oh great. Get us a table at SPA goes for ten. For Saturday night and I've got a perfect opportunity for you. I gotta go just hung up the phone. Was that trust me give me ten minutes. I'm going to call him back in going to get your money for your movie. So sure enough I call them back in ten minutes and say listen Tony's going to direct this movie. They're looking for investors I think you'd be perfect for this if you're going to be in, La let's have dinner. Let's have a good time and if we play our cards, right, we're going to get you to invest in in fund this movie and sure. Enough. BOB FLIES OUT TO LA GETS NERVE FOR TEN AT SPAGO in back in ninety nine. That was like the hip place. Place so. There this Big Table and is Tony and his wife Brooke who's a huge movie star and Bob, and then you know seven other. Friends of mine just idiots all this fancy dinner and were just causing so much ruckus in the place and lots of laughter just like practically having food fights in this Nice restaurant and Tony. Brooker trying to sell Bob on raising money for this movie and and they're giving them all this investment information and all this you know Bob's just kind of like. You know. Everybody knows you're not gonNA make money on an indie movie like that. Finally I just stop them and I said Brooke Tony You Guys Have Academy award tickets. You should take Bob to the Oscars this year that be great and his face lightens up he's a way you you could do that. Yes. Of course we have we have four tickets. Why don't you come with us and he says you know well, I love to you know that sounds great and the very next day he signs with. Them Invest In this movie funds the movie all because you know he has money he doesn't need to make a three percent more on his investment. He wants to go to the Oscars with exist and he went for the next five years. They gave him tickets to go to the Academy Awards and that is he got out of it because those are experiences and that's how I became a movie producer is basically by. Connecting. The DOTS and having A. Showing people what fund this industry can be, and that's you know that's what some people want out of it. Cool. So that was sort of my. Foray into producing movies. Like an associate producer something on that. And at that time I, I was editing for a living. Still. Doing some acting. All right. So moving on from there, we do get the funding for that movie and the Oscar Stories, which is very cool. Good. Story. then. Do we go to the? Ed Again rhymes movie. Know I did. I won the forty eight hour film festival and from that got offered the Leeann rhymes movie. Okay. Do you WanNa talk about doing the forty eight hours? Yeah. So that's a big deal. Okay. Cool. So I had been editing for some time and I basically got my start editing. When we were producing the whole world theatre show and the editor said Hey I'm quitting I'm leaving I'll give you four hours teach you how to edit as best I can and sure enough that was it. You know he he gave me four hours of coaching and from then on I took over the edit position editing an Improv comedy show. And that's sort of cut my teeth and final cut pro and and. Started a career being comedy editor all because people knew about the show they knew you know they they thought it was funny. They knew that I knew comedy and that could help story together so. I got into editing that way and was doing it semi professionally for some agencies you know the the smaller stuff. And then in two, thousand, two and two, thousand and three acted in the forty eight hour film festival. In a couple movies two thousand and two in a movie called White. Bitch down which one. Forty hour won the national forty, eight hour film festival and then. Two thousand three acted in another one. About the four horsemen of the apocalypse and two thousand, four I directed. Film called moved and we ended up winning the Atlanta. Forty. Hour Film Festival and then went on and won the whole international forty eight hour film festival. which was big now. Back then it was like over six hundred movies. and. From there I got offered to direct this movie called good intentions. And You know we spent a couple years developing the script and we shot. A trailer for to help raise the money. And eventually using that trailer, we're able to get Let's see. Luke Perry Leeann rhymes woman named Hendrix who's actually believed in it, and then two of my favorite actors, John Rice and Jimmy Simpson. Who played supporting parts, but are now huge stars, right. And was there anything in there about working with any of those actors are on the move it was your first feature, right? Yeah. That was my first feature. And my Gosh she learned so much I. Mean we were shooting on film. WHO's all in thirty five millimeter. Year we scouted forever it was. Supposed to be a twenty-seven shoot day and then maybe five days into shooting. Sat Down in the Producers Office and they said look we got cut five days out of our shoot schedule. So we have to figure this out. And it was it was hot. It was one hundred and five degrees in summer in. Shot in rutledge in Madison and new burden come all twenty thirty minutes outside the city. But. A fantastic experience working some real professional actors I mean it was. Amazing. When Luke Perry would just you know he didn't want to rehearse he didn't want. He didn't want to sit down do any sort of read throughs running like that and my God, the guy knew exactly where his face needed to be to be in the light in every scene no matter where we were he knew where the lens was every single time. He could. He would help us in blocking just by knowing how to maneuver his way through a set him. And you know versus when you're doing commercials in your, you know the director typically I'm sort of calculating every Mike removed every person is doing. To work for the camera and it was, it was a pleasure having somebody with his experience really just be able to work with you and it became a a bit of a dance right and it was nine. Oh, two one. Oh, was that over by then or was he still shooting that or now nine? was very over by this poker so he had. He'd probably moved on from that ten years or saying. Okay where do we go? After good intentions from there was commercial world you know. At, that point I was selling myself as a you know a movie and commercial, storyteller. I was doing lots of work. You know major national. And International AD agencies directing commercials doing long term. A little bit of everything. Still based out of Atlanta but had traveled to La quite a bit and shoot out there. We did a project together. We did the alliance theatre piece. Of the great pieces of my. I love that that piece. Yeah. And and I just have to say as an editor because you were the director announced the editor like to I mean you could describe it but everybody's standing still on the cameras moving through it. Through the theater. I didn't have to edit it all. Everything that CARE Like let's lay it down put some music art. Saw The concept. Was You know this? The Alliance theatre is a is a you know A. Regional Theater here in. Atlanta doing they're winning international play awards are awards there he huge force in the theater world, but people don't really know about it so that we wanted to make a promo video for them. In the concept was actors on stage and. Everybody freezes and he comes to life and he sort of guides you through the a all the back stage components of the theater world, the Education Department everything, and then it comes back on stage at all comes together with everybody frozen. But that's not how it was written. It was written to be a guy in a black box sort of talking to you all these graphics popped up on the screen here. So it was it wasn't written like that and we were in casting. and. It was jody. Feldman. WHO's the producer and the creative in the casting director for the alliance circa we're sitting together and halfway through the casting session just pause this for a second and I turned to her and said. Look. I've got an idea has nothing to do with what we've been casting so far but. Tell. Me If you'll go with this and I pitched her on the whole concept of everybody freezing and all the stuff and she's like I love it. Let's do it. Budget hasn't changed. So you can do all that for the same budget that you're GonNa do this person in a black box with graphics jumping all over the place then grape. So we called in a lot of favors I mean this is. A huge steady cam. Shoot. And we did we pulled it off all in one day and it was beautiful in the camera work was fantastic and the actors a fantastic and. Kind of what happens when you decide look were we're all GonNa take a hit financially but we're going to create something that's awesome. Right and it, and it was a huge fundraising video for the alliance and I you know and. I happened to serve on the. Serve on a board at the Alliance theatre whatever ten years later and they still the people still remember that video. It was cool. It was fun. It was a great. I. Think it wanted some award, sue Tell you something but but was this am I imagining this or did it happen? was there some discussions once you decided you wanted to do this that there was gonna be like special effects are getting flame involved because I remember like people saying Oh we'll do it like this movie did and shoot it with these cameras and circular cameras like the Matrix but you were just like, no, we're going to do it all on camera and everybody's just GonNa stand still. Yeah, exactly. I don't know how to do that stuff. Look. We're discussing that. We're okay. So people that you know we had all these effects planned out for stuff frozen air and stuff coming in life you know like. We had all those things planned out or we're. Trying to get talked into all that stuff 'cause. Turner studios backing this whole thing you've got some of the best post production people in the world all telling me that we do this we can do this. We can do this and I'm just like, but we can also just get everybody to stand still right And make it simple. Yeah and and I had sort of give people. Activities are stuff to pull on. So you can see the tension in their bodies and you'll notice everybody in the frozen St has a purpose and not just standing there they're doing and they're in the middle of something that just time stopped. Muscles are flexed in their eyes or intentional. So I think that's what makes the difference just seeing people standing there and. We've made some little fake rigs and we. There was maybe two shots that were those like a piece of paper floating air and that we did inflamed because we get there like you could afford to special effects. A piece of paper and a hat or I think the two things so flash forward. Two Thousand Fifteen. I got a call from a producer friend of mine in Boston again, Mark than idea who I actually worked on a made up with Tony, Shalhoub and Brooke Adams with back in two thousand and. He called me out of the blue and said, hey, you know you got a call from Mar Vista Entertainment, which is a big distribution company. They're looking for female driven thrillers and he said You know I've got. I've already showed them some of your work and they said that if we can come up with a female driven thriller and price point than. We can be green lit the shoot this year. So I'll. Okay. Well, I came up with. You know right three ideas down of what you should what this should be an came up with June. So we pitched them, they liked them one of them. They said, okay we approve that. Here's money rather script. So we brought script writer on and. She wrote a treatment. Okay. We have proved that it's the next step and wrote the wrote the feature and within four months of getting this call out in Boston Scouting for this movie that we were shooting and sure enough I mean it went fast fast fast it was. Written it. Was Concept did written cast funded all within five months of that initial call and we're filming. Funny thing is we were filming in Boston. And we're had five weeks on the ground there and of those five weeks we had five blizzards. The winner of thousand fifteen where. You look at my location scouting photos and I'm standing in four inches of snow. and. Then you go back and film it and they're like, Hey, boss where you WANNA shoot the scene I'm like. Well, look at the world the scout photos out in the front yard like bus. They're six feet of snow out there how he film there. got. To make some changes and it was, it was I'll say that. We shot in fourteen days. Shot entire movie fourteen days in. Boston. Everyday was twelve hours. A minute of overtime and there was not one day through all five blizzards was anybody ever late to set I mean this crew was fun believable how efficient and smart and safe, and you know they they knew how to get there and they knew how to deal with all the the the weather complications in and it was just a fantastic experience and. Work with a woman in Kate Ashfield. Kate was in Shaun of the dead I. Guess That's what she's most famous for. Okay and then several early great actors in this movie and. It was. Fun Trailer and watch the trailer on IMDB in a I was like, Oh, well, you kill everybody. What's interesting is that they? So they editor the trailer and sold that. Before we were done really filming finishing the movie. And we got done making the movie and the producer's like, Hey, you know we've got an issue here. This movies only eighty five minutes long and we promise them ninety. Ninety one. So we had to write an opening scene. We come up with our solve for this and we created a preface scene. And shot it at my neighbor's house, I put my neighbors in it a hired a couple of local Atlanta actors and we filmed that literally just everybody was getting ready at my house and shooting in my neighbors front yard and on their front porch and It's like, Hey, neighbors, how'd you like the dead people in a movie? But it was you never. Have A. Short of movie I mean it's always like way too long, winded and long and. I actually think the reason for that is our lead character lead actress spoke really fast and I honestly think that affected the length of the movie and I loved her tempo. It was great for the Vol- but. It played a lot faster than. It should have. But. It just shows you how resourceful you have to be when you make movies because it's it's not all glamor. People sitting around in these trailers for that's just a huge budget. Yeah. Yeah, and this was literally the producers like you've got two thousand dollars or some crazy small number to shoot this opening scene. So you know again you're asking your neighbors do you want to be in a movie and you get in local actors here who are both just make it happy and just make it happen and I remember calling the deep. Steady operated and like, Hey, you know. How Do this for five hundred dollars or whatever it might have been. And all your equipment and can you bring some lights and came rig and what else you got so But I think that being an Atlanta director and being loyal and faithful to my crews to my team members for years and years and years you know you you don't feel bad asking people for favors at some point because they know that you're going to be loyal to them and it's not going to be one of those. Hey, I'll get you on the next one type of situations and. Budget thing or commercial as a budget. You'll hire them again. So, loyalty loyalty is good. Okay. So from there you go to. Commercial spots well from the. Agency. So after after doing this low budget movie. I got an offer to come on staff at BBDO, which is. One of the biggest addy disease in the world to be on staff director and producer. And sure enough after spending you know. Three months doing a low budget movie. Yes. A salary with insurance and all the benefits and everything. Wonderful. So I did. So I went on staff for two years at BBDO directed. Over fifty commercials in the first eighteen months, I was their. Major, campaigns for. Twins arrests for Sanderson farms chicken for a lot of. National Company. So Home Depot and and other stuff obviously bigger budgets I a very short amount of time thirty, sixty seconds. I worked at mechanics and New York us solar commercials, and you know you're being on staff director and editor. You know you had it was you had the benefit of being able to brainstorm with the creative team for weeks as opposed to when you're a freelance director. It's like you get one day of shooting one day have casting and you get a couple of hours on the phone with me and that's it so. It. Really became a huge plus to be able to get into the weeds and talk like real people with the creative teams and try to figure out what is the point and how's the best way we can. Get the best performances and the best shoot out of this budget. So, very eye opening for me and I think for a lot of the people over BBDO and From there got recruited to go over to another agency in Atlanta twenty two squared, and that's where I head up the in house production arm of the of agency twenty two pictures and you know that was a real joy to have a team of producers and editors, and you know P- huge clients like Home Depot. Baskin Robbins and. Few, other, just major national brands where you get to. Dig in your part of the creative process now, which is very different than just being a director for hire. So now I've left twenty two square of kind of doing this on my own where created. In House production company that can work with different agencies and clients around the world. The idea of production I model, which we developed over twenty two where it's. Bring us in from day one don't treat us like vendors. Let us be the creative process so that. So that. I'm. I'm giving you options from day one on how the shoot your idea the best rather than you've spent three months developing and selling it to the client, and now you're going out to different production companies and having the bid and everybody's telling you this. This concept is too expensive it can't be done. So you know this model now works for the creative team from day one and we just create guardrails. Yes. We can do that scene just do it in the living room instead of in this room and do it this way. So that everybody stay satisfied and it really puts as much production value onscreen as possible without sacrificing the creative process. And I'm doing that on my own. Doing it bringing in different freelance, creative teams and production people. Currently we are in the middle of Kobe crisis. So all the hang put on pause. Recently. Unearthed. Some old scripts that? Means partners had option years ago revamping those and our goal is to get those scripts ready to go and get funding in place in and. Bring those movies the life as soon as were all able to get up and shooting again. And can you can you? Can you just talk briefly about some people would be very interested with independent movies the funding in the fundraising is one way to do it or is there several ways to do it? How did how did you get involved with that or to someone else take care of that for I? So raising money for any movies is I mean, it is all over the place. There are so many ways to do that. You know I have friends of mine who made a hit movie for eighty thousand dollars. You know fifteen years ago like they you know. It was all came from one person's dad you know the the the last movie be let's see. The last movie. I raise money for you. Know we put on events at People's houses and we agree that we brought in. To put together a little sizzle video, the producers would come in. Sometimes you bring in the lead actor. If you already have somebody signed, you bring in some. Producers who've done other things who are going to be your partners and and they bring in some cachet with them and and you hosted somebody's house and aunt's House of friends and. Somebody who wants to see you succeed and they bring their their wealthy friends over to hear your your pitch in right you need to do it two or three or four times in one person latches on and they give you some seed money and you use that seed money to raise more money, and hopefully it You know that leads to finally funding a movie. and. There are being in Georgia, we have tax credits, you can increase tax credits to raise some money he sell your foreign distribution to raise some money. So you know there are lots of ways. I. Think the smartest thing to do is attach yourself somebody who's done this multiple times and do the work for them to take their advice listen to what they have to say and how they done it before and just you know just sort of grow and learn from them and that's what I've done is. I've partnered up with my my producing friends up in Boston and. We've done to movies together. We've raised money for another couple of movies and were. Raising money and in getting this movie ready now so You just you need a seed in you need to be so enthusiastic about it that you would comfortably talk this over with anybody and everybody that you could possibly meet and you have to believe right you know if. If you wouldn't ask your parents for it and I don't recommend you asking your parents for but if ask your parents for the probably, don't trust them enough. Accents right? Right yeah. No. That makes sense and then let's just wrap it up with. Being Director for young directors out there making shorts, entering festivals, and they want to be an agency director they want to direct feature films what would your advice to them be? Advice the directors is in, it's different for different people. Fortunately I was an actor and then an editor producer before I became a director. So I knew how to speak to actors. I knew what it took to edit a piece to get it done and I learned the financial responsibility of having my own company to you know to know what the producers jobs were so. I think there's certainly a hierarchy in the commercial world where you start off usually as a PA of some sort and Kinda work you at the ranks to different departments. I. wholeheartedly. Believe that people should edit. They should addict if they're planning on getting directing in storytelling. My daughter is ten. She knows how to edit in. A final cut she knows how edit and premiere she knows. She's ten years old because. Because, they're now like it's. Bucks a month or two, twenty, nine dollars a month you can do it and get some photos, download some stock footage, take some old videos from somebody and just put it together and tell a story. To get from the beginning to the end, know what sort of insert shots you need to transition from one scene to another learn timing play music in the background you know being a drummer all my life. Everything I shoot has a tempo when among set, you'll see my head bobbing the whole time because I know the tempo of the scene and when I'm editing I know when pieces riding long because I feel the music hasn't changed. So for young directors I really encourage you to edit your own stories at anything stop motion. iphone videos whatever it takes to understand. Tempo intone. And then Really. When it on paper, you know the whole idea of when the producer kicked me out of the room for good intentions and cut the scene down my. Golly, we could have saved so much time and money had we really done that with the script before right we Met. A young a be. Director recently, and he's like, yeah, I'm GONNA ask some friends that come out and do this shoot and I was like, what's The scrip? Because you know I'm going to write a rough structure story structure and then we're going to kind of play with that and I was like, well, this is your first film. You're expecting people to come out and work for free on your short on something that you're not sure. It's even really right. You know. I said, I, said, I'll come out and work for free on your film and whatever position you want if I believe the script is great. And until your script is great, you don't really I. Don't really feel like you have the liberty to just ask professionals come out and give donate their time. Yeah. And so you. Really believe it and love it and so that when other people read it, they go I love this I will not only will I give you a day of my time I'll ask my friends to come out with with me and we'll bring some agreement with us because we think it's Great That's great advice mad I, agree with all of it and Thank you so much for doing this gyms has been very insightful. Cool stories I definitely. Love hearing about especially the the independent features because I've always wanted to do a feature a haven't yet hopefully will someday. Awesome man thanks.

Fast start changing with the dell don don denton welcome to the backdoor gap. Should you choose to accept this. Mission for kids is jamie and my name was caitlyn durant and this is our feminist about movies about spies about kids. We're pivoting. We're getting simply. Just those thing it's caitlyn. The podcast bubble has burst. You have to be more niche than ever do broad we can only talk about despise and the media there in derived at them that means we can talk about agent codey banks to end one. No i meant like te'o as well. Is there any other kids who is usc girl kids who is spies. We'll harry by harriet. The oh my god there's actually quite a lot of media in this sub sub sub genre. We should have done despise september. There is so many spy movies for kids. I like that nancy. Drew is absolutely yeah yeah yeah she. Oh i live i love nancy drew so as in barbara nancy drew now. There's a new nancy drew and now it's barb from stranger things. Am i making this up. Oh i didn't think it was bar but there was a movie that came out that was in theaters for. I think two days and starring emma roberts or was that a different a different one adds adds to that was my that was my era. Nancy drew has yet two thousand seven. There's one that came out in two thousand nineteen. There was only got like brushed under the rug. Aw i know unbelievable anyway so we talk about the representation of yes and <hes> we use something called the spy test to determine whether or not the kids in the movie or watching our spies respect delta's it's. This is our wildest episode yet. We'll play. This isn't your first episode. We we're talking about portrayal in movies especially when there's but spies in children and then we use the back door test <hes> as a jumping off point and not of course it's a media metric <unk> created by cartoonist alison bechtel also it's known as the bechtel wallace test and it requires that two female identifying characters in order to spies in a movie any talk talk to talk to each other about something other than a man or correspond man right a man who is spying alison bechtel. Is she spy not that we know of or maybe she's just that i hadn't considered what we found out. Alison bechtel was both a great cartoonists and icon and in the c._i._a. That would mean. Did you want to cover. She's she's got to want my parents to be spies. Show bad because of this movie yeah. Oh my god. I got so into spy culture after this. I'm so we're let's get into coverings biking we are we have a guest as we always do. She is a dear friend of ours. She is a photographer. She's a producer of you've met. Any comedy shows around los angeles. She's helped out at various of our live shows including the show we did at san francisco sketch fest and the new york comedy. The festival people often confused her for our super producer sophie but when it is actually catherine leon. I loved getting getting mistaken for so it wasn't honor. Oh it was an unwelcome. This episode has truly been. I think years in the making i think before you establish yes you were having a podcast. Even the only thing i knew about you is that you love spot the only thing i needed you. Conspire really throwing me off. You know a a real spy probably wouldn't love a spy movie so much judge because it may give away all. It'd be a dead giveaway but their kids. I'm not a kid. We're not kids but are you a spy. Maybe ah that's that was my way of telling you. There's been a spy. There should be by adults spinner. I agree there's sort of a spin off called machete starring trae. Ho don't think we have salad is not a real spinoff but it is it. There's a whole machetes series directed by the same director spike is robert rodriguez movie franchise starring danny trae ho playing a character. I think named michetti who is also his character's name in spiking caitlyn. That's all we all want it to spin off of spiking. We we camp fisher. Actually if anyone in i wouldn't be surprised if robert rodriguez it's like snuck in a little reference in machete just people's head cannon. Does he agree. That is his code name so in that series is that his real l. name or is that a codename no one's ever seal in shetty's. We're still guessing. Maybe it's a direct spin off. It's clearly establish salvaged the beginning and we just don't know truly don't because we did not watch it right but this is i mean this was my intro. Tha danny trae hope for this is my answer to the lot ought to watch when we were watching it back as a group last night. I didn't realize how many like i recognize tony shalhoub but i didn't like when i was a kid. I was like oh that's alexander. Many and i didn't know who alan cumming blake was. This everyone's first alan cumming movie is definitely mine. <hes> no. I saw this movie for the first time when i was thirty true my first alan cumming was josie and the pussycats. I think that's i mean. There's no bad way to be introduced. Absolutely not the the greatest of all time and i think this was the first time i unless eight already seen yeah. I'm pretty sure this would have been the first time i had seen antonio banderas. Although maybe it seems i'm i'm not shy probably saw zoro like i'm sure i've seen sorrow either the i. I don't know if the second one had come out yet but i definitely saw the first one. I don't remember the order but there's so so many famous teri hatcher is in this yes. I probably didn't even know who teach in her yeah. Mike judge is in like yeah. Definitely the only didn't judge was all i cared about was carmen and like i just wanted to be carmen. Ginny many think really an iconic siblings vivey that was my whole thing with caitlin was trying to prove to her that spy kids was a perfect movie was that i was like this is the most accurate representation of me and my brother in any movie did anywhere was your age gap similar brother i think so it was four years which seemed mine too similar. Yeah yeah my brother in this. I remember seeing this movie and maybe this is bad but like the the kids in this movie it is. It's like very realistic how much they beat the shit out of each other like you don't usually see that in movies you see maybe a light verbal argument that carmen judy junor sooner throws a dumbbell at his sister. After she kicks off of a jungle like she kicks him off a jungle gym. He falls to the ground. She's mike i'm like hard like stone right like swings off and then when she turns around he picks up a way and tries to throw it at her and hits a plant or something something which i remember seeing this movie and being like oh. My god kids aren't supposed to hit each other. Thank god i've been doing this to my but it was like this would probably have in two thousand one would have been around the time because my brother and i have like the same age cab where my brother got mad at me and this is when i was like losing teeth left right and he planned to sting operation well. I was just by you know he's just a devious young man where he he must have been like four or five knee like crawled up onto my bed and he slammed his but onto my head and i lost to the forget what he's still my pokemon card. Oh gosh slammed my head and then i got ten dollars from the tooth fairy. Oh wow who one brother he was so mad at my parents thought it was really like we got in trouble but there was like so you you sat jamie's head. He's a really hard. I would have been in like second second or third grade or something when this movie came out so you guys were the target demo the right so officially catherine. What is your history with this relationship etc. I can't remember seeing in theaters years. I know that like. I don't recall seeing in theaters but i definitely have the v._h._s. It is currently on my dining room table. They tried to give it to you. You'll showing it hi to give it to you but i just watched it a lot as a kid and like a big thing for me. I think was being able to see like hispanic representation. I and i was like oh. These kids are like they kind of look like judas. It look like my brother but i was like carmen kind of looks like me as like a child and i kind of saw a lot of my family and like their family and that was like who will now is probably one of my. I like earliest movies. Is i have an uncle that is daddy trail anti-american camerin antonio and alan cumming antonis yeah my mom's teri hatcher. It's a whole thing <hes> spike spike is is based off of my me and my way of telling you there's a lot of secrets you revealing to me. It is is if you are <hes> no. I think they're just watched it a lot. When i was a kid like it was just i found it enjoyable. I thought it was super funny and i think jamie saying like i was like oh i think i want to be a spy by like i got into remember. Scholastic book fair stuff had like spy books and said i care that your order and i can't remember anything i bought but but there was nothing really to other than the fact that we just liked it as a family and i think because my parents knew who like antonio benders was they were like oh yeah. We like this movie to 'cause. We know these actors which is a big thing because my parents don't really know. They don't really watch movies and they only really know like big name. People and i think internet was clearly clearly a person that they were like we know him. This movie's allowed jimmy. What about your relationship to this uh-huh. I love this movie. I remember seeing it in <hes> theaters with my cousins very occasionally. Usually there's a few movies. I remember seeing with all of my cousins very clearly <hes>. This was one of them were just children heard <hes> of sounds like my family. Yeah doesn't hurt sweaty kids and like to adult not enough adult to adult but i remember my omni bunny une- brought us because she had a huge crush on antonio banderas and she was like she was like i just like a weird thing where she was being in the van and i'm being like there's something for everyone and you're like hey oh. This is a movie where we had like. We're still like poor so it was like for ten of us we had like a tube of starburst and we would pass them down to each other but i thought for some reason this is like an a. an embarrassing commenting. I know the story yet. We're like they were passing them down the row and for some reason i thought my cousins were unwrapping them for me. Says eating them with the paper on. Why is it tastes weird and they were just like us. Look and i got june but i loved this. I like it also got me really really interested in spying and i i never i didn't see harry at this when i was a kid i think i'd say that was my that was my take a spy because i've seen harriet the spy i don't. I don't know but yeah i end. This was definitely the first movie about buy ins that i'd seen yeah and like i had like a picture of alexa vega in my room like i i loved it and i and i remember. I think that we saw two in three in theaters to definitely three because you got three d. Glasses is yes. No maybe i did. The three d glasses definitely sounds familiar but i couldn't tell you what the plot of three i three. I i remember three better. The two because three takes place inside of a virtual yeah is semester salone one. I think so that actually so so excited to go home. It's so it's a really good and all three of them around net flicks to four with joel mchale alba weird the original people are in it but i think the second one is about don again. Who's the guy that gets kidnapped in the first. I wanted by mike judge judge. I think because judges in the second one yeah because he he's the main like bad guy thing 'cause his kids start becoming because like they're like okay. Spy kids are okay now now. It's like a weird family competition between down against family and the cortez family because i think they're just remember one scene in particular ridiculous at like a banquet and all of the parents get poisoned. Kids have to save whoever's the best spike it. It becomes like thus by kit or something like that. Take subtle. You've been nodding along. Are you also a huge fan of this. I was like going into it being like hill. At least my are we all. These are the three of us the same eight. We're all okay so yeah. Just truly like one of those like prime down to ninety two to ninety two babies. I'm an eighty six baby and that's why i've never seen it is so weird like when we covered this like specific like run of ten years that like being born even a couple years apart like will decide whether you've seen it or not like someone born in maybe like i dunno my younger brother ah he probably doesn't remember seeing this young for the first time or anyways spies kids i. Why should i jump into the recap appa. Yes okay so <hes> there are two kids are not spies yet. Don't worry junie and carmen. Carmen wants her mom to tell her bedtime story about two spies who fell in love. She tells the story <hes> the lady spies mission was to kill the man in spy and his mission was to kill her but instead of killing each other they fall in love and they get married and it turns out that that those two spies are carmen in june spy spy daddy but they've retired from being spies consultants and and they've started a family. Their names are gregorio cortez. That's antonio banderas and ingrid. The mum played by. What is her name kurla eugenia so meanwhile junie the little boy he loves this t._v. Show called loops loops that like we haven't been saying that over and over again yes twenty four hour <hes> flukes fig liaise such a tongue twister okay even now watching now flips fouque's scarier than when i first saw it. There's like body horror in this show. Oh i have now. I'm the graphics are wild now. I'm wondering maybe this was the first movie word scene like body horror in. Maybe because it's it's now one of my favorite things like maybe maybe not giving spy kids. I forgot how much of it like. It was an impressionable film yeah tony shalhoub at the rupel added and his hands for some reason the phone people home ball thumb. How's cather. Arthur new pointed out that on netflix god thumbnail for this movie trust is of something so it's a thumbnail someone that net flex has aids. He's okay so junie watches. This show flips. We see a scene where we meet. Mr flu played by alan cumming king in his layer and then the bad terminator from terminator two is also there and he's giving a lot of exposition. His name is mr lisp rounder said and then i mean we tony shalhoub is also there as flukes sloops minion named alexander minion but we that's a reveal find out 'til later on to take glasses sir alan cumming subscribing to like she's all that logic where like tony shalhoub takes off his glasses and alan cummings like oh oh my god. I know i've seen you before. I don't like the implication that in in order to become powerful tony shalhoub has to take his glasses off as a frequent glasses wearer. That's fair was not fair. You're not wearing them now half only because they mess with the headphones. It's a whole thing but i will say it was. I don't even think this was done intentionally but like it was fun to see that trope inverted. I never a man takes off his glasses and everyone's like your bus now. In alexander union oh such a goofy because alan cumming and antonio banderas have to say that name dead syria yeah. It's a very serious situation is the bad guy like the deep seated villain in this movie and in both of them do have to say it and such. It's like a way where you're like. Oh i'm scared. I have to be scared of this. Antonio vendors read was like pre alexander and then tony. She lives like yes. It's me great okay so before all that happens <hes> we learned that fluke is both i guess the host and executive producer of his own children show and an renters sure peewee you mean yes yeah so fluke is also so in inventor who we learn has been trying to make an army of super secret agents but they turned out all weird in mutated and now the only u._c. has for them to put them as characters on his shows which sounds like it's almost saying something else that is like doc <hes> that should that works and being a children's movie. Oh i think they know you mean boggling yeah junior high and salt that convert my feelings one yeah a lot of weird choices in this movie overall so fluke also has this army of thumb thumb mm robots which are like sort of useless and then he also has these highly trained killer robots that are designed to look doc exactly like specific children which fluke calls spy kids. That's the says it stare at called spike performances. Movie is the best part of this movie. It's so good in that scene. I think between the two of them they say spy kids four or five so tell me more about these kids like robert rodriguez you the only problem with spike id robots though is that they can't talk and they don't have brains. Meanwhile spy daddy gets called on a mission because several agents have disappeared in oas like the secret spy agency that they used to work for this by parents so so spy mom decides to go with spy dad so she seduce him she she's do. I yeah we'll talk about that so they call uncle uncle felix played by cheech marin to babysit the kids but a bunch of bad guys show up and then felix's like by the way your parents are spies. I'm not your real ongole and you need to deliver a message to the o. S. tell them that the third brain lives felix fights off the bag is and then the the not yet spy kids escape in a spy vehicle to a safehouse meanwhile the spy parents get captured by flu p- and and we learn that fluke is after something that he thinks the o._s. has destroyed and he wants spider daddy to rebuild it for him <hes> and then <music> in the not yet spy kids have equipped themselves with some spy gear so they're getting a little closer to becoming spy kids training themselves alves. They're training them. They're being proactive in training themselves to be spies. Yes scrape and then teri hatcher shows up never a good sign the the by forgot about the teri hatcher body body horror scene and that like because i haven't seen this movie and maybe like five years at release yeah and it was like oh my god like they. They really do her dirty. In this anyways yeah it's wild <hes> she shows up pretending to be oh says but it turns turns out that she and all the people she's with or also bad guys and they trick the kids into giving them the third brain which is the thing that spy dead had created flip is after so the kids chase after the bad guys and they get the third brain back another even closer to becoming actual officials spy kids but meanwhile back at the fluke house fu flip. You flip also lives in a really cool boot. It's a boot shave with the castle. The movie so is silly so sloops minion named alexander million ah like hey. I made your spy kid. Robots look like carmen and junie and then those evil d'appel angers go after the real carmen jimmy and steal the third brain back <hes> and then the kids go to this guy michetti as we discussed his danny trails character for help and they learned that he is their actual uncle but he's like. I don't wanna help you 'cause. I hate my brother so they steal his spy plane and fly it. Spy plane phuc house. Danny trio is also like fine with it yeah and then he's like ha ha ha you. You guys are wild. I love seeing danny trae whose smile it's always so disarming sweet man so oh there at the house now where tony shalhoub has promoted himself to the evil mastermind behind this whole plan and he's making copies of the third brain and putting it into the army of spike robots and then alexander minion turns spy daddy into a fu gli and then carmen junie rescue their parents with the help of flu who is now a good guy because he cares more about his t._v. Be show than about building an army which what a wild precedent. I can't quite wrap my head around that one but i love the conversation that and catherine thing though like the one shot they shot where fluke is like in the clouds and he's huge for some reason there is so little and then it cuts back and at one point he's like sitting cross legged just like totally thinks that this is real that is so funny because i like standing because he's supposed to be scary and then he gets closer to junior and then he's like just lounging in the clouds. They're talking about their feeler having little therapies they we really are in june one that makes him realize that he's could inside need an army of robots. It's so that's i mean re re watching get as just like oh wow i like. Junie harnessed the power of like sense boy to to save the day like his his super. Spy power was expressing his feeling yeah. It's true it's true yeah so in other flip is a good guy with his help. They all turn minion minion into a fu gli <hes> but he's like i like it i five heads and he's having a great time <hes> <hes> and then the spy family they're about to fight the evil robot d'appel gang spiking children but then flip has reprogrammed them all all to be philanthropic or something. He's switches their brain to think that what's right is wrong and what's wrong right. All it takes apparently so then they go after like many in and teri hatcher in the terminator from terminator two and then they're like family now and then they live happily ever after there is a great alexa vega who went to high school with god. Damn everyone it's there but alexa vega. It gives that powerful speech to cameras too close to the movie. She's like there's listen. There's spies and there's kids. Sometimes spies should be a part of spy family. Family is the most important biking of all turns the t._v. Right the so that's the story.

This is requires analysis. Yes yes it does <music> for me having never seen this movie having not grown up with it seeing it through the adult is that i saw it through you know an objective observer observer will say to me. It seemed like the female characters and the characters are presented as being generally equally competent tint and smart and good at their jobs and i think it's mostly because carmen is older but she is presented as being far more competent than in her little brother jimmy yes so we see this a lot. This is like a thing and we talked about a little bit in drastic park. This is something we've seen. A lot of movies is where it's like. An older sister younger brother and the older sister is presented as being more competent which i guess makes sense for their age but it's also good for us because we too often see women who are not competent yes. I i mean i love. I still stand and carmen to this day. There's an end the like something that i mean it is like a more realistic sibling portrayal than you see in most kids movies as a specially in a movie this otherwise fucking crazy <hes> like i really liked the sibling relationship and also that you see carmen like be moody moody and like kind of mean sometimes but it's not like the movie is never like and you should be like it's she's being a kid yeah <hes> she's she's being really smart kid and really like capable kid really spy could really spying and she's spying the whole and and like even when she's into into her broiler like she cares about him and she protects him and he helps her and i just i don't know i i really like they. They didn't do anything saying. I didn't think to make her the girl spy like she was just one of the spies which i love big sister energy love it yeah that that was great. I also enjoyed that. You get to see a little boy. Expressing fear being afraid kind of being sort of the more sensitive one yeah and then the little girl being brave and like kind of taking initiative 'cause you usually don't see either of those things or the roles will be reversed where it's like. The boy gets to be brave. The girls scared <hes> so it's nice that you see that little flip in juny child wards. I was a little little cousin the whole time it was like child words visibility and his own neon band a little cousin <hes> <hes> and then i liked that they both had for junie. It's his his war and then for carmen it becomes a critical plot point that she whereas a diaper at night has bed wedding issues which is just like something you never see in a movie from a kid who's also really cool and you're supposed to likewise so i was like you know like power to the child bed wetter. There's such but there i mean it's it's like there is such a stigma especially especially when you're a kid of like the kids to bed and like the hero of our movies still leads the bed and yeah her brother makes fun of her for it but then they also atlanta submarine into like moments later so i'm like well. I guess the bed weddings kind of a wash yeah. That was a cool and that was also. I thought that that was going to be a one off joke. Because it said between the parents one of the many times they're trapped and and i like i don't know if this was assumed it was junie because he has younger and had right warts or something i don't know but but then you find out later that it's carmen it's actually an important plot point because it makes them crash the submarine because she's like she's mad at knowing like those little details that like would i. I remember that from being a kid. 'cause you're like oh bed. Weather's not being made fun of like <music> sick. I make i'm making it sound now. I'm like an adult i. I didn't actually wet the bed okay. Jamie sounds like you did actually wasn't wetting the abed in two thousand and one i did for into when you skipped over that year but maybe back in p. P. every night wet the bed as a teenager no guys i've he'd in my pants hance like at the door as an adult life totally like one hundred percent. I got so used to not when i would drive an hour each way to go to work like i just would get in the habit of not paying before i drove so when i'm at the door i'm like i'm going to see if i don't open the store and i've done it countless times i can't even i don't even no no anymore. I remember my first break up in high school. I was being so dramatic that i just wet the bed one day. I'm like i'm not leaving my bed. I'm shoots. It's too depressed just test might it's almost like a bad idea. This is has been a nice sharing time. I think this is i've been healing ought to anyway so yeah i think this movie which is clearly directed towards like children and like families <hes> does a lot live good things in terms of representation that so many kids movies many of which we've discussed on the podcast do not do and in fact a a lot of them have done more harm than good but yeah this one as we said normalizes bed wedding and warts it shows girls and women being justice competent and smart as the boys and men it shows catherine you touched on this but so we're trying to figure out where this takes place and what exactly ethnicity this family might be yeah. 'cause it's not specified but we think it might be mexico that it takes place because i was saying that growing up. I just assumed it was california because i'm from here and i was like oh that could be like in san diego. We're like a coastal part like up north. It just never occurred to me to think of where they were but we were. We were trying to figure out like oh. You brought it it up really do do you think they're in a different country. I never thought about that and then re watching it. We found so many context clues and then it was like definitely in a different country like cow. How in the beginning spy mom spied ad say how they were from two different countries <hes> and now they're in one so we're gonna assume that maybe inspire mama's from the united states. She's got an american because she's i think either ambiguous or like she's supposed to be american and then like throughout the movie. All the texts that we see is in spanish right and like notices and various characters speaking spanish spanish which and like the school. There's like that seen in the school where you're like well. None of the kids are speaking spanish and like can't really tell it could be like an easily american school but there's a scene where he almost hits. He liked breaks. The car really hard the lady holding the stop signs yells spanish <hes> but like i think it was mostly the text on like the wart remover bottle the texas in spanish one of the billboards it was all in spanish is stores were like going to the clothing store and it says like ninos and babies like all the texas in in spanish and then when they're at the park as well <hes>. There's everyone in the background speaking in spanish so it's a spanish speaking country we can assume we there's necessarily clear identifiers specifically what country it is. There was also that clue when the wedding scene you're saying how on the cake they have like like the diaz more at those like right skeletons and i'm i might be wrong but i'm pretty sure that's clearly mexican of mexican culture yeah so for that specific imagery country right and robert rodriguez is mexican so like i kind of assumed that in the movies take place in mexico. I was trying to figure out where this movie was. Shot shot and i don't have much santa. Don't they say the seal yet and that's the place in mexico right. He looked up but like the i'm still not and then the sleep trying to be vague and it's like this is a hispanic culture that we're like trying to show and were intentionally trying to because there is this from spain from his but then like danny trae ho and cheech marin who all hispanic the two of them are mexican so at at least at the very least it's an ethnically ambiguous family a mixed family <hes> we're not sure exactly where antonio benders is supposed to be from from what ethnic group he belongs to but it some like lat next or hispanic you can safely say that it's like hispanic yeah and the huge movie like taking place outside side of america in a non english speaking country is like a big deal. Yeah sure catherine. You're saying that like to be able to see yourself off. Representative feel as though you're represented. That's like a huge thing because so many measures like white kids white kids white kids and like as a kid. You don't realize that that's what's happening until you grow up and so to be able to be like spy kids. I saw myself in spike. It's like all those disney movies. It's like i could could only be pocahontas because she had brown hair. I can only be milan because she had black hair zones like but you don't think about that context as a child here disliked well. She kind of looks like me. I guess that's that's the princess that i have to pretend to be your whatever right which is cool yeah. Another point for spike is love it. I guess this kind of ties into carmen but <hes> we were talking about this last night as well <hes> the way i really liked how the fighting works works in this movie because this is like there's there's a lot of action elements to this movie. Someday got more violent than i remembered. Terry hunters head basically burned off but then later that her wig is just kind of dad. She's well. She sounds like this woman in charge because she's like mostly ball bush and then she's got some long straggly hair and she does seem to have more power once she is balder. It's true <hes> but the but one of the cool things is like i think we see very often in in action movies especially action movies of this era that women are only allowed to fight. Women and men are only allowed to fight men and that is not a rule that applies to this world world. We see ingrid fighting hand to hand with guys. I don't remember do we see antonio banderas fighting women at any point just i. I don't think so but just because there aren't any other like women spy. I think the only other adult is teri hatcher woman yeah that's true i think right because because all of the agent who turned into those were all got ya and so i think it truly is just ingrid and teri catchers character and then but then carmen also <hes> fights her brother at multiple robots robo brother and there. I don't know like it's it is kind kind of rare to see. There seems to be parody in in fighting in this movie to it doesn't seem like like you're saying catherine like the i think the only reason antonio banderas <hes> doesn't end up fighting a female spy because there's not enough female spies in the movie but i mean it. It is cool that it's it's not like i feel like it's always like the guys who fighting and this is the big part and then we cut to also. There's some women fighting over here. It would have been very easy choice for for when the two evil gang show up for it would have been an easy narrative choice for the girl to fight the girl and the boy the boy. I think here's my ask us. I think that they probably didn't do that because it would have been much easier to shoot yet the girl and the boy fight each other and then the girl and the boy fight each other probably would have been too hard to coordinate like parent trap style exactly citing life kid fight choreography would have been nearly impossible but also catharsis right like you were saying. You've always wanted to fight your sibling. There's like a whole scene. Were there in the park when they first meet the robot d'appel gainers and she's like i've i have always wanted to do this and she punches in the faith which is not saying that like obviously. That's not great but there's like a sibling thing in you where so you're just like man. Sometimes we just want to get your as a as a sibling. This movie appeals to my worst has an older specifically as an older sister with younger brother. He's like the worst pairing o of all time and then the other thing that i think i think that <hes> in a lesser movie carmen. I think she's supposed to be like maybe nine or ten maybe yeah ah <unk>. What is our best guess for these ages i think he i think carman's like maybe ten. He's like seven. I feel like carmen in may be like closer to junior high almost even alec twelve or thirteen in june is probably in like second grade. Alexa takeaways like i guess older now. I guess like fourth grade fourth fifth grade so alexa vega was twelve when this movie came out and daryll harrelson bara aka. Mr meghan trainor was nine so yes yes so i think that an anyways in the lesser movie especially if she is is aged up to be eleven or twelve <hes> i feel like they would have tossed in some love interest for two. That's about the age where you're like. Oh i mean if we got got a female character. We gonna you know we've got to her to kiss <hes> but this movie also ops out of that and just gives you five hundred more scenes of tony shillue which i'm all fine with with better used of time sure there's a nice little moment in katherine pointed this out when we were watching it but as as they are taking taking the initiative in it's mostly i would say carmen who's taken the initiative to train themselves to be safe house right yeah. She picks up a spy manual by unknown and author very funny. She's reading from it and says a good spy puts himself and then she adds into the text herself yeah in the mindset of the opponent so she's reading this patriarchal text. That's excluding women altogether. She's like it's not just himself. It's herself too. She has to like self-correct through the whole thing. She's also i mean she. I liked that they both have moments where they figure out what's going on <hes> but i think carmen does get a few more of those moments because because she's more motivated less emotional than junie and just like generally more badass because she's twelve and he's nine eight. Oh i just thought of another so compare this movie to jumanji the first one where cureton dunn's is the older sister her and the she's got a younger brother and then all of the like emotional weight and all the like the kids figuring things out that's all given to the boy so but it's like <hes> carmen and figures out who danny trae ho is through like context clues and then like the one that is like your it's a tracking device and then carmen raged riches blink blink because i hate that she throws the tracking device in the eye does love and then. She saves him several times. She has a safe him when the drops johnson but then saves time again. That was a really scary shot shot yeah there. I don't know how to describe the cinematography in this movie but it is a love it so much data to ghirma navarro who it's the cinematographer in this movie. It's like their times that it's all live action but it looks like a cartoon sometimes like when she drops junie like to his death it looks like a cartoon but it's still really intense and scary and oh it's just so cool yeah that's where he's worked a lot with gear molin toro and like desperately cool stuff oh he did pans lambert <hes>. We got to take another quick break. We'll come right back. Don't you worry tonight at the museum <music>. Hey backdoor cast listeners.

Com slash watch t._v. For fifteen percent off today and we're back when nicholas county. I am still thinking of a dog the body of work. Here's a couple of things that i didn't like as much or that. I found a little like oh okay i one whenever the mum is retelling the story of spy spy dead meeting and antonio banderas like they come face to face when they're like about to supposedly kill each other. He reaches in to her top and pulls out the photo of him to be like oh. I was your target but it's like okay. Why're you reaching into her clothes right near her boobs. Yeah not okay to show children gory anyone. I keep forgetting it just just we. I don't think we've even said the character's name yet. Antonio perez name is supposed to be gregorio. We've just been calling him antonio by spies eddie. There is a scene also where ms grey denko. That's teri hatcher character yeah. She comes into the safe house. She says she's with the o. S. s. and then she in carmen have this sort of like bonding moment. Where carmen gives her the information she wanted and she's like oh. You've just joined the league of like awesome awesome women spies. You know it's like this like women got his stick together moment right then it turns out that she cannot be trusted. She's working with the enemy so this what otherwise could be a nice like yeah. Women do have to stick together. Moment is completely nullified because she's an evil devious woman right which again it's like and there are things that issue more speaks to the lack of female characters in the movie in general really have carmen ingrid and miss credential and that's that's basically it because there there are a ton of male characters in kids. There's like girls but they don't do any yeah and there are like take characters similar to ms grey danko who are men like alexander minion who turns out to be this double agent but there's enough male characters that it's not your general impression right because you only have three one coming in and being like girl power and being like just kidding bitch like that doesn't and maybe <hes> doesn't bode well bedwell and something there there there are a few things with ingrid that <hes> i felt like her character later like was i don't know like in in general there we touched on this before but there's that moment <hes> when spidey spidey is wanting to take on this this mission right to mike judge or whatever and <hes> he's kind of been working on it behind her back doc and then he's like oh i gotta go save my judge and you know spy mommy comes in and he's he's pretty dismissive of her and he's like no. No no like you you stay. Does she like i wanna go with you like i'm raring to go on another adventure. She's all about going and becoming a spy again and he says no you are mommy stay at home and then the way she convinces him as she has to like seduce which and then it works isn't just like that was pretty lazy writing yeah yeah. I mean gregorio spider. Daddy corio do better is not a feminist icon. He just wants. He thinks women should stay home in the kitchen taking care of the kids not it's not ok spy daddy when they are working together. It's equal but just that that scene. I was just like man come on uh-huh shortly after that they've been captured and they're tied up in like the flu palace and she uses ring. She uses her ring to lake doc laser the ropes off of them and so she's the one who kinda saves them in like releases them and then they immediately first of all the reality room or whatever the virtual some weird. I like my augmented reality. Police slake cloud cloud room and then it is always revealed to be a green screen right really funny and then they end up in the flu house dining room where mr flip himself delve is eating this like green sludge. Yes the seating nickelodeon slime basically so weird the spoon i'm very slowly like expects them to eat. It also land on the table rate onto like a pile of gummy. It's very weird <hes> the other thing with with ingrid that this is like more of a story thing how she's treated but it is like i can. I can see i can see this both ways but you do get a lot more information about <hes> spy daddy's background than you get about her righty find out about about danny trae ho and we're thrilled to find out about the danny trae ho secret right but we find out like his family background also find out about his secret scientists background in a room full of scientists <hes> and so like his character gets a couple of cool subplots and we don't really get that for ingrid right. <hes> we get that the way she relates to it as she was like. You didn't tell me like she doesn't really have the upper hand and their relationship arrays and he is then made kind of more important to the story because he's the one who developed the third brain. He's the one who didn't destroy it so like he's he's why they are the target of flip and later minion just making him more integral to the story whereas she's just essentially tagging along because they're married and she's by couple his wife spy so yeah it would have been nice like if we do learn more about maybe his backstory in terms of his family history and connections and stuff like that and then you keep that but then make her the one who is developing the third brain and like give her that integral component to the story like it's it it is like way imbalanced in terms of what we know about him him versus what we know about her. Yeah and it's a yeah it's it's a bummer but it's like i wouldn't remove any of the spy daddy back story for the world. It's all great but it's like she could have been included more meaningfully in that story or or like you said like if she is involved in the third brain than they kind of have an equal call subplot power and for sure then show then we would have had a woman in stem which is important. You hate to see it. I wonder if that imbalance balances due to how famous either of them were because jamie you brought a good point about like what level of fame was tonio bandera during this movie was he liked to famous has to be doing this or i'm just curious about like what level of like they may be put more on internal matters 'cause he was like the recognizable face but i don't i. I truly don't know i can't i feel anyone's fame. Level was at that point like what did alan coming to that point. What was tony was tony shalhoub monkey yet like what what there's no way great to know. That's an actionable question am i. It is so hard to when was peak antonio banderas. I think it was like late nineties. Although eh who can say we've accidentally thought that tom hanks wasn't famous before he was cast in toy story so we don't know anything <music>. I think we were just tired but i knew that i had been. We're moving. This is the year before among so shillue by racing is get there are people who are i mean. The george clooney cameo. I think is treated as if he is blatantly elite to famous in richard linklater's in this movie for a second really oh yeah they're really good friends because they're both from texas. We what is he is. He like one of the bodyguards. Johny guards credited as cool spy is probably one of the guys like attacks the safe house or so yeah yeah. That's funny well. I mean goes must be an awesome friend because i feel like everyone always like like working. Yeah yeah like he. He must be like a really cool nice guy or i hope. I don't know very limited information about rod robert rodriguez except that he made spike <hes>. I've movies. I've seen the like <hes> desperado auto trilogy. Cincinnati is still one of my favorite movies. I don't know i haven't seen it in a while but mike i'm sorry i was just looking at the credited. Did it character names to see if there's any female characters that we we didn't talk about but there's so many male characters but they all have such silly names alexander under minion donnegan giggles what didn't realize mike judge's characters last names giggles teaches feel gum <hes> mister lis- chris cool spy agent johnny like who wrote this movie. It was robert rodriguez well to what you're saying catherine about like <hes> did the f- like the level of the actor's fame play into like how important their character was. I mean maybe but also so like it just tends to be the default for especially male writers and just i mean especially at this time where the men were given more important things to do. We know more about their characters. That's just been the default throughout all of history so that's not great also oh i think <hes> kurla gino is she's only <hes> twenty nine in this movie freely to she's only <hes> so they really pushed her into mom rolls else kind of early because <hes> sting but yeah when this when this movie was released. She was only twenty nine years old. No kidding yeah. Antonio benders was like fortyish. Okay okay well that checks out standard hollywood age gap at it again. We've been talking about the how there aren't that many female characters but we're forgetting about the female coded thumb thumb always wearing a sexy nurse outfit and she has like very fam- fingernails and they're painted and she has like a like the other some thumbs are like these like oh fish but the female something was like a very like like curvy sexy. I wanna i guess in general i would say the thumbs are genderless but then there there was such a clear gender signifier of ladies finger finger lady you lady finger that i'm like maybe they are tail-coated because they're unpainted dumb thumbs. I choose to interpret them as genderless but i i well not me. I think that because of that clear indication location we've got the the mail thumbs are allowed to be like the soldiers the spies and then the the only female kumbum we see is thrust thrust into this like caregiver nurse role so and like made to be sexy i yes i agree i. I think i'm going with my own head ken on this even if robert rodriguez doesn't understand that the thumb thumbs are doing their own thing identifying as they choose i right. That's how i feel. I have a several very quick notes. Things i noticed about the movie. One carmen in this movie looks exactly like joseph. Gordon levitt looked in third rock from the sun. They should have cast him as has her. The sound effects in this movie our wild finding the music in us going okay the music. There is a song <hes> sloops sings toward the middle of the movie and you're like did this get cut that from nightmare before christmas like it is such a like danny healthman timber teeny and then big reveal it. It is danielle. Danielle did write something music for this movie and then i was like now. I'm gonna like question what i'm thinking about when i say this seems like a tim burton pardon movie mike. Maybe you just sounds like danny elf movie and i'm not giving mr l._v. is <hes> his. It's almost saying i'm just on such will poulter kick that if someone makes a movie about winco boeing that will poulter should play danielle fman. I'm just putting that out into the world to all live our listeners which is all of them all of them incredible a sound effect. My favorite sound effect in that entire movie is flips cape. You hear sort of very distinct whoosh like sound and he does it so drastically he like every time he gets up. He sweeps it back and it's the loudest sound i love. I love him so much. I think allie coming is my favorite it actor of all time he's terrific alfred molina. This is like i also think no disrespect to shillue alfred really could the knocked out of the work but he he was busy being in shock alive true so also flew p- is trying trying to figure out what's missing from his children show because it's it's rated number two and he wants to be number one and he keeps pondering this and i think the answer is probably please few women in your writer's room buddy. I'm guessing any call outs missing from your show mr flu and we we did touch this briefly before but i really i thought it was. I kind of forgot this. I remembered the how that seen with flu and ginny looks visually because it's blazoned onto onto my brain forever but the fact that like a young boy expressing his feelings and trying to empathize with an adult and the adult being responsive to that like solves a major plot thing. You're just like oh well. I like because i feel like we were sort of saying that is normally normally would be like the girls role sure to use the power of feelings and if that had happened with carmen i would've been like rolling my eyes at got it but because it's junie and he is kind of like even towards the beginning spy. Daddy is kind of junie or too soft. Stop drawings. Stop up watching allen coming on t._v. And and i like it and then later i mean he proves himself. That like empathy is a good thing to have have and you know spy daddy he's. He's got a untangle some of his toxic masculinity and learn from his son. Hopefully he does that in spy kids two through through four or whichever one season is antonia antonia vendors in two. I don't remember aristotle confirmed. Yes yes firms three. I don't think i know june as he is in your gang so that is still win it. It goes crazy to of kids lord. One of my favorite parts in the movie is when they they go to the safe house and carmen finds the drawer of like the stash of emergency cash and then she's like wow emergency cash from every country three and there are ten wads of cash and it's i guess all ten countries in the world i did look very hard and studied the flags and figured out that the countries represented are canada. Germany mexico guatemala colombia the u._k. The u._s. south korea italy and argentina robert rodriguez pick his top ten. It's like these are my favorite travel destinations just getting into the trilogy event just looking at the list of names so i guess in three and i have no recollection besides video game of what happens in three but apparently we meet mike judge's donnegan giggles his whole family ooh and emily osmond places daughter gertie giggles matt o'leary and salma hayek plays his wife francesca koska giggles which i'm like a weird or couple then mike judge and salma hayek. I cannot think of in my brain. What did they talk about. How okay but isn't shark boy and lava girl like a spin off of something has to do with spike. It's i think get stylistically isn't boiling lava girl like the two characters in the game for the third one and then there's a spin off right. There's denver's dealers tailor. Law and child lounge regular is he really talks taylor lot on there twice two years ago now just say he lives there and he works there. Oh i had one last thing the teri hatcher seen when they when she comes into the safehouse makes no sense. Here's why so she finds out that the third brain exists only after carmen tells her this up to that point all the bad guys think that the third brain had been destroyed. Whenever <hes> we see the flashback of antonio benders crushing a walnut instead instead of the third brain so carman's like no the third brain lives and then teri hatcher says oh well it must be here then because it wasn't at the cortez house. Why were they searching for. Something that they think was destroyed. <hes> i should be a spy. Can you should be this by when you think about it anyway. <hes> does anyone have any other thoughts about the film mm-hmm. I am just impressed of a lot of the comedic physical gags in this movie for being an insane movie. There's a lot like geared towards. It's kids but i feel like a lot of like weird. Comedic writing things in a lot of the jokes are like four adults or like kids won't understand almost. I don't know oh it was just a good example of like gags. I was seeing in the film like visual gags that i was like oh. I didn't know that you could do this like the george clooney oh he pulls off off the eye thing and then puts it back on. I don't know i really i was just telling the silly things like really admire robert rodriguez for making something so like extremely he's like it just feels like using the cloud. He built up to this point. This was his <hes> seven movie post from dusk till dawn like he was a well established at this point and just like went for a movie spike in like a spy body horror. <hes> spy kids movie just like man that is that is a responsible use of power. I really like this is so different from most of his other work which is like already like i mean some of it's pretty like campy violence but like he he's like tarantino and that like a lot of his movies are just like this like wild wild chopping of heads and blood squirting everywhere and just like crazy violence and then he made spy kids and incidentally spy kids three eighty game over which he did direct comes out the same year as once upon a time in mexico contains more working man a movie where johnny depp's is get gouged out and his game over it says yes but i mean i just think it's like really cool and like like even though the these aren't the movies primarily remembered for by most people except for the three of us it's like he developed like this really distinct individuals style for kids movies that no one else has ever done. It's just it's so cool any directed all four spy kids movies and shark boy and lava girl commitment wow and the whole michetti and the spinoff. It's called the jedi i just i don't know this re rewatching. Those <hes> is just increased. My rabbit rigas <hes> rodriguez respect by even more than that. He's pretty dope. He's cool. Does this movie pass the bechtel tests or the spider says it does both had pass. Both i had a passing at least i twice. There's the opening scene with carmen and ingrid and there's a moment where junius off covering his wards. They have a brief conversation about like. Are they going to better. You're not going to bed. Did you brush your teeth already. Yeah everything okay at school is fine yeah and then this is kind of a duplicitous pass but it does pass between carmen and miss. <hes> gruden goes danko as well even though they're talking girl power but the subtext is grow powers fake yeah but it does pass <hes>. Does it pass again at all. I forgot to pay close attention as i should. There's just the end whenever the kids reunite with the parents. I don't think i don't think so because carmen does i feel like carmen does most of the talking but she's talking to george like she's talking to the t._v. Okay and what about in the fluke house does it i couldn't i i notice a lot of antonio banderas talking. It's mostly. I think the main thing is that there's just not enough. There's like there's three female characters in the movie and it's completely outweight. I think in little parts at passes like like pretty easily with with the interactions but i think it's mostly like when there as a family it's antonio banderas kind of leading the charge of of like we're a family. We're gonna do this as opposed to ingrid and card turley unless i'm missing <hes> missing scene or something number i mean given the fact that we only have three three female characters that have any significance. All of them do have conversations with each other at very least. There's a sort of passed between <hes> gruden cohen ingrid that you could. I mean it's when they're like what she's like on the t._v. Or something yeah tv in the car but the subtext of learning was yeah so the subtext doesn't work on paper technically weekly works. We've you know the bechtel test is flawed metric arguing about it is basically pointless sure yeah. No i mean at very least the female characters we are given. We know who they are. They care about each other and it's not always about the majority men men in the movie true. Yes let's read the movie on our nipple scale show we <hes> zero to five nipples based on its representation presentation of women. I'm gonna give this. I suppose it would give it like a three because it is handling the way hey women and girls are represented in media better than a lot of media targeted toward children at least of the films films. We've covered so far you know there's there's parody among the genders that we see but the fact that there are far more men and then there are female characters the fact that antonio banderas hates women and just want them to be mummies who's to hit home <hes> <hes> but <hes> no i mean i think it does a lot of of good things and <hes> especially the fact that it's like <hes> representation of latin lat next mixed family like that onscreen being the driving force of the narrative yeah i love alan cumming and all my nipples go to him. I go this and i'm probably overshooting it a little bit but i'm going to three and a half. I i love carmen woman. <hes> and i love hearing your connection to her catherine. Which was i mean something that didn't because i was a you know as a little white girl and had truly truly an embarrassment of riches of <hes> problematic characters to latch onto but the fact that i mean it's like carmen is a really cool character because she's not a problematic character. She's like a really cool and also realistic like example for a girl that age like she kicks her brothers asked but she loves them and like she's good at stuff and she's observant and like bad character. Alone is just like i don't know like i it's feels like a miracle that that character avoids so many of the pitfalls that a preteen girl character written by a man would normally fall all too right because it's usually that like precocious like genius child trope like the wise beyond her years or child or sexualize too early ah or any number of horrible things but she's truly treated just like character and has flaws. She's still wets. The bed sometimes like it's. I don't know i i just i really love how the spy kids are written in. This movie. June is a really <hes> really cool example of like not a hyper masculine little boy and having that be part of what makes him cool and like part of what makes him good being a spy so i think it's great yeah and <hes> i just just a fun fact throw into the ring. Robert rodriguez walked alexa vega down the aisle. <hes> oh my has to be so nice right like grit we did ask i did pose the question and was alan coming at the meghan trainor sabar wedding. I i guess the real question is was because and incoming do the fishing take. What did they do. What was their role. I hope that being junie and being an empathetic young male character is what tot daryl a eh that it's okay to be mr meghan trainor <hes> and also just <hes> something that i come meeting to bring up last night and then i think i either got embarrassed or tired tired and kept forgetting to say as alexa vega who now goes up by alexa pain a vague because she <hes> she and her husband combined their last names which is whole thing but she has found a very successful <hes> second life in hallmark movies. She's been in six in a row so goodness yeah. She's coming for all of the full house ladies in-home trail anyways and i do have a few issues with the way ah ingrid's characters presented just mainly wish we knew more about her and that there were more female characters but carman. I don't know communist such a victory <hes> four four four all and so is jimmy so three and a half for me an a give all of them to shalhoub all right yeah wonderful for all of his heads. He's gonna need apples for each of his or her catherine. I i think i'm going to give it a four out of five only because i'm just just jumping off of jamie's point of carmen being such a victory and it's like the movie set out. I think what it wanted to do which was show oh these kids in like a really cool way and i think it successfully did that. Because in my head the movie is more about the two kids learning about themselves rather than the parents yeah and i think it successfully did that and i think like what you're saying was like carmen is well developed and she's to me like the lead like i think her engineer equally the stars of the movie but i feel like watching her kind of bumped it up being like no she's cool. I want to be like her like she's a she's a spy but she's also like weird and like she can be made fun of and it's fine. I think that's why i pushed it up a little bit but i agree. I think there's not enough female characters and the other two adults just weren't developed enough and i think they could have been easily but i think it. I think it does more good than it does harm so so i'll give it i'll give it that and as a movie in general ten out of ten forever wallace so many good things <music>. We also forgot to mention that we learned that carmen skip school to go off to believe sometimes. She says somehow she manages is to go from wherever they live again never clear but wherever they live to believe to just just hang out twice a month twice a month or something yeah she was like she skipped school school twice a month. I'll give one nipple to that scene. Where jimmy has the what is it the little save handcuffed to his hand and he wants to get it off and he smacks it on the rock or the wall and and it bounces back it is the fun in the head. It's the funniest thing in that movie and i will give the rest of that rating to the entire safe house house best thing the little packets that turn into a man there clearly pop tarts clearly pop tarts packaging aging product that mcdonald's thing. You're just like oh. It's like the primarily wanted a big mac. I know i've got sludge so i can't eat wine pretty coming. Sledge fletch also may be stolen from nightmare for christmas. I guess telling you where sally is eating greens soup. I don't know there's some weird crossover that i think we're missing well anyway kathryn. Thanks heard coming on the podcast so excited.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and What's Making Us Happy

"This message comes from n._p._r. Sponsor panara a listener of your caliber has fine taste taste that favors smoked chipotle chicken wrap with new cold brew from from pinera. Get them on the go with rapid pickup breakfast. That's fast not fast food from panera food as it should be this conversation station about the marvellous. Mrs mazel was recorded in january twenty eighteen. We'll be back next week with new episodes of pop culture happy hour from n._p._r. <music> welcome to pop culture happy hour. I'm linda holmes. Amy sherman pow dino's signature project was gilmore girls now. She has a new project on amazon called the marvelous mrs mazel it stars rachel brosnahan living in new york in the late nineteen fifties who separates from her husband and finds herself in stand up comedy i was i was in god damn flower. I smell like roses and sunshine. Show not my hassles swimming peraza hand just wanna golden globe for her performance and the show won for outstanding comedy series so we figured it was time to dive in here with me in the studio. Radio is blunt weldon of the n._p._r. Arts plan and glen and i are joined for this conversation by two of our women i from n._p._r.'s. It's very own weekend edition. Mary hartman highbury i and also a writer and editor and thinker about music and many other good things katie presley hi katie howdy. I'm so happy to have you guys here. I glenn you wrote about this. <hes> show a little bit a while ago. I reviewed it for morning edition right right. You read it for morning edition well. How did you review it. What were your thoughts. I like it a lot because i am here for amy sherman pellegrino's articifial blend which is fast talking brunettes nets who are charming monsters to whom the entire world genuflect s- <hes> and they're imperious moms so that's that's pretty much. That's the butt heads at the girls thing brosnahan's star right so if if you didn't like anything else about this show you'd love this performance breslin was asked at one point why what attracted her to the role and she said midge mazel is a character actor who exudes confidence in every situation twenty four seven and i can understand what would appeal about that role to an actress <hes> that said little caveat here confidence and privilege are travelling companions you very rarely see one without the other and when these travel together weird things can happen for example apple an instance in the second episode where a woman of color is literally pushed off the stage to make room for midge mazel. Now that is a thing thing that ended up itself has certain like optics. I i remember seeing that going what's going on here. Why am i watching this. What's going on when you put that in the context of measurement palladino who was often sort of back grounded people of color on her shows it just it just kind of lines up in a weird way that said i think the period setting is gorgeous and be it's forcing her to do <music> some things it's it's playing door backhand so she can't rely on the same old stuff that she does says the constant pop culture references and also this might sound a a little bit weird but i really liked that. She's finally getting to lean into jewish culture in a way because when she did the stefan gilmore girls about boston brahmins and greenwich wasps we'd get a bunch of d._r. Jokes and it kind of felt like we were kind of hitting that same be always done very very light touch. Was that stuff which it's not fully and i think it's enriching the show a lot more other stuff to say about but i'll i'll hear from some other folks cool katie. I heard that you really dug this show. I had heard a little bird told me <hes> what do you like about it. I have to out myself very quickly here. As not a- gilmore girls fan and i liked the character of midge. I really liked brosnahan's enhance performance. I was just as she's so charismatic and i just i'm not usually a binge watcher and i watched like two episodes a day which is a binge and i liked a lot. How midge comes to the revolution of her her life. She comes to feminism in a way that is it's not even quite feminism. She comes to her personal revolution in a way that was compelling to me and not irradiating. I think amy sherman palladino has the women on her shows tend to like spring fully formed for each other's foreheads and this did did not have that to me. I think that's a good point. I think that's a good point and i also really liked all the addresses. I have to agree with <hes> glenn mentioned this too. I think the period look of this show. I don't think of myself as being like a period show like enthusiasts necessarily but the particular look this show how colorful it is how swinging the dresses are expensive the sets. Let's sheer shantung. My gosh the coats the sweeney coats are all i have ever wanted but one tracking shot through an entire higher garment district warehouse that just went on and on and on there is money being that i think there is barry. How did this strike you. Well now that we're talking about the clothes. No i will say so not just all of those touchstones our army. I am period show girl so i thought not a period show but i i love the look of it. I am here for barbara. San singing. Happy days are here again. I think her performance is magnetic. I can't take my eyes off her. When she's on the screen rachel brosnahan i to love the depth of the fish. There is a lot of that and that is actually i have to say you don't actually see that kind into that part of of judaism at a certain time was released sort of as as a jewish lady myself upper westside wealthy westside side wealthy having but having caught a little bit you know the difference between <hes> abe and father ship. Excuse me let us tell you bury it. In jewish remember rosenberg. There's some wonderful wonderful subtleties between in their relationship and that particular you know setpiece of on the upper west side that said i i am happier when i am watching her do stand up and when i'm watching her talk to suzie and i am happier when i am for a while for like the first two to four episodes. I was like god. We're getting a lot of exposition. When are we going to get rid of jill. I could just get rid of john. I can't even like even there's an early on onsumer. He's like in the corner looking creepy and i know we're supposed to and i just can't i can't i can't way rather live with tony. Shalhoub tony shalhoub lube plays <hes> her father and has a couple of lovely moments yeah but i like the first two families stuff i'm into but i just don't care about him and you could see the moment of him recognizing her genius onstage coming from a mile away and it didn't make it any less satisfying when i saw it but you know it suing plot points i found found you know it feels a little wrote to me. I agree with you. I was more interested in the sort of the show business yeah story i learned <hes> then then i was the domestic story which is interesting because one of the things that i like about the show is that it allows her to be genuinely ambivalent about motherhood motherhood which is almost from the gecko which is almost never allowed in a way that doesn't immediately get coded as because she's depressed or you know or because because somebody has stopped her from truly discovering that the only thing she really wants is babies and i appreciate the way that the domestic her domestic life is kind of not what she's excited about but i'm not sure that i'm excited about it either and there's a lot of time spent i agree with you that the stuff with her parents where they're kind of dealing with her being separated and how they feel about that is more interesting than her actual relationship with joel who i think i think joel is just under her develop in a little bit. I think maybe miscast yeah. I'm not sure they have a strong idea of kind of who he is and why he would up and leave his wife and kids which is a very specific kind of thing to do especially at that time and the other thing that we haven't talked about very much touch is i also love the alex burstein performance as susie her manager and in some ways i feel like in mid jr and susie you get the two sort of ways of amy sherman palladino dialogue coming off you have midge who is sort of the spark earlier show easier laura la later later lower alive and then you have in susie <unk> have this more gravelly more grounded more angry type of personality that i think carries a different strain green of the palladino city of her dialogue. Even though i recognize them both as very asap character there's a real divergence which hasn't always been true in her stuff. If you look at laurel i and rory and all that there's always been a kind of genteel quality to most of the women that she's written and then you get this. I don't know ready your it's like a it's also another. It's a really speaking of period peas. Susie is really interesting other either way to be a woman in the fifties midges performing in this greenwich like dumpy underground gaslight <hes> cafe half a. I think it is <hes> they don't serve beer there. Never and suzy is of that world and so you see some of the like tag yourself. I'm spoken-word with tambourines the various cast of performers. I was really pleased to see that kind of be especially because the beat movement was not right great for women and it was great to see like a beatnik woman also doing a thing the period setting also does something really smart to the comedy completely obviates the studio sixty on the sunset strip problem where we're constantly told that the show is brilliant and cabbage and leading the national dialogue and every time we see an actual sketch gach. It's like a rebelled rogers and hammerstein salutes what's going on here. This standup isn't funny to me but it doesn't have into be all it has to do is be of that time. It has to feel right. If that's not enough. I mean the show does do a lot of stoking the furnace of how brilliant she is because that's the engine of the show the <unk> amy sherman palladino has said this show is going to end when she arrives on johnny carson's couch. That's the arc of the show so to get us there. Her manager has to tell her she's brilliant. Lenny bruce has to be a fan which have been someone named penny roost achieved just to walk by a group group of protesters in washington square park and say here's. I'll have something to say they all turned on jacobs plus her out of the crowd pick. Tell us your story and she's like dough mind. If a new garage thing aside i think the show is doing something smart with. It's reminding us that she's brilliant but also trying to keep us liking her even though she can be sort of thoughtless and the ways she's beautiful right but she works at it. You know we see she. You know how hard and how ridiculously and l. obsessively i really she works at it. They have a sequence with her and then later also a sequence with her mother sorta sorta showing how it's not just a matter of the effort that they make to look beautiful to the outside world when they leave their homes but it's also that for these women women at this time even their marriages were not a safe place to look how they really look you had to also make your husband believe that you woke up looking like a a magazine cover and i have no idea how historically accurate that is but it feels right right for what they are trying to say about midge and it's like she's. I don't love word feisty but she's you know she is a kind of you know firecracker occur kinda lady but at the same time she's also a lady who measures her calves and five ankle proportion every she says every day into just make sure that she is perfect and looks perfect and it's interesting to me to give her that kind of vanity and and yet also kind of explain how she got that way. It's also interesting that the show is hedging its bets to keep us on her side by having her stumble into stand up not avid be something something that she wants and i think that's interesting went back and forth on it because it's like why couldn't you want this well. The timing the period setting means she wouldn't be a thing for necessarily but it could be <hes> and and the fact that she refused the call. I don't know how to do this. I don't want to do this and that if the show was just coasting on her natural ability she gets up drunk. She gets a pie. She's awesome perfect wonderful. She isn't like if you listen to the reaction of that. I set people don't really know what to do with it. Which i thought was really. I didn't want people to be falling all over her. Although i i do i wish he hadn't. She wasn't always stumbling onto the that was a little frustrating but i will say about the comedy is really hard to do. Comedy within comedy like that is really hard it sheriff in well. It's not my favorite comedy. Those are legit jokes. They are actually actually laughed. At some of the i love the you know. This is the most glorious name like that. I i mean. I think that was a lenny bruce real joke anyway. The board has the stuff. That's written. I think is is dynamite and that was the thing that i i every time someone's in favor number. Mike on the show i i get the and i really didn't have very many causes to cringe the fact that the series is going to be about her honing this natural ability and and and failing and bombing and that's important and that means that she's taking her natural ability to its limit and then she's working hard. This is again this. That's how the show keeps us liking your animals. You can be a monster working hard to shape it. That's important data. Did you enjoy the music katie presley music pros just going to ask you about the music because his i loved it and i didn't. I'm not even familiar with all of the songs but what i think it did perfectly is left the heavy lifting to the actors but managed to find songs over and over again that made me say i can't believe there's a song for exactly what she's feeling every country music but in silk new twitter bio yeah i was so impressed by that that because so often shows us the music as sledgehammers of like. Are you feeling this way yet here. I'll play mad world one more time and exactly i was just like uncanny how precision point accurate these songs were yeah loved it and speaking of musical the the english that tony shalhoub puts every line. This is a this this role is a bathtub full bubbles that he's just luxuriating in a way that feels kind of borsch belt that feels kind of old school really old school and it's really funny because of course a lot of people got to know tony shalhoub playing a heavily accented italian doc driver on wings wings and there's a moment i don't like it when <hes> shows show us something and then tell us something to underline it but there was a moment that we were talking about joel before before yeah. There's a moment that can unlock that character for me. Which is when <hes> tony shalhoub scherzer abe reminds his daughter that he said to her when he when she went away to college. Do not marry a week man and that's that's all of a sudden. I was convinced that the show knew that it was seeing in joel exactly what i was thinking. I was not liking joel for reasons that couldn't quite put my finger on besides the one who he left his wife but there's something intrinsic to that character that i couldn't quite find out that was that was the key and that's what he plays over the course of the season as an elite guy. His own father underlines it many many many. I think that's right all right well. We want to know what you you think of the marvelous.

It's called the imperial rach shimoji. The books are called ansari justice ancillary sword and ancillary mercy. I've read the first two of those so i recommend them on. Two different aren't levels. I recommend them to anyone who loves sci fi because treachery and adventure and unpronounceable names abound but why it is making me katie presley happy. This week is because every pronoun in the books is she. Oh interesting so this empire is called raj and the people are called rod shy and to the rajai gender is completely unimportant. Their language does not have words for it but other planets in the galaxy earned the empire do have words for it so the default is she and then occasionally someone will be corrected but the narrator whose name is brick. I think unpronounceable names continues to say she forever because that's how her brain works so like i just cannot cannot put into words what a sav it is for my weary soul to read three hundred page books where everybody is a she until proven otherwise i it's it's so great end so the first book i understood probably a third of the words and the second can book. Maybe three fifths so like the third one. I'm hoping for five seven call it a win progress and learning for super recommend. Oh thank you so much katy presley. What is making me happy this week. I made a commitment that i was going to try very hard to watch all watch at least one episode of all of the a sixty plus t._v. Shows premiering in the month of january. One that i really enjoyed is called building giants and it's on these science channel l. in building giants. They follow the construction of something enormous. The first episode was about mercedes benz stadium in atlanta data and they filmed over. It looks like the several years that it took to build mercedes benz stadium. They filmed how they built. This is gigantic retractable roof and the moment that they tested this roof that fits together in this interesting like pedal design so that the pieces all come and a and twist around each other and lock in. I think if you have a kid who is interested in construction and construction trucks and you know big objects objects which are often fascinating too little kids. There's a lot of kind of you know. Enormous stuff getting picked up and hauled and moved and put in place and and although inches and all the stuff that it takes to get things where they're supposed to go. I think anybody would say that. If you're gonna talk about sports stadium there's a bunch of other stuff the the financing of sports stadiums and all the other things. There's no effort to get into that. It's strictly a construction show so i'm going to recommend building giants on on the science channel particularly for those of you and i know you are many who have kids who are interested in engineering things and and building and construction so that is what is making me happy this week that brings us to the end of our show.

MG 307 - Marvelous Radio (with Reilly Anspaugh)

"This is a head gum podcast. Yeah I didn't kill that kid. I think you're thinking of someone else. Everybody is that a good Bateman. Oh Oh we are that we reported. I got on tape around the entirety of the last episode. No all right. Excuse me little still still real volume Thurman. Look you looks like it's spilled on your sweater a little bit to design you love me and I love. Hey you'll never regret saying I love you to someone Is that true? I said I was like regretted. I'd rather regret saying Nice things then. Regret saying things. Do you know what I mean. Yeah like I'd rather be made foolish than made to feel evil or right. Yeah welcome to the marvelous. Mrs May so I'm Kevin. I'm Alex Toys Becca. They'd rather regret saying something. Evil than something foolish. That's right I think that's true. I'd rather like draft off a tweet event someone slides into the deums with three paragraphs about why it's wrong and mean and then delete it rather than like say. I love you to someone or no. Wait what did I say I'd rather not do that? I'd rather regret saying the kind thing right and someone saying like I don't feel that way about you at all. Yeah then yeah then. The rain comes down and listen to some songs. That's right eye on Yeah I mean Alice's feeling a little blue today she's feeling a little blue. Remember four years ago I was working blue. Oh I was working blue blue. There's things that like. In sheer repetition their lodging our brains forever. Well now they're now gone but now it's back. We met try member big you crush that girl crush something that everyone says to Midge every episode of the marvelous. Mrs Mazo you crush that girl. They do pretty much. Except for the finale. Let's introduce our guest. Today right now is getting to it. No time to waste Francine folks. She's an actress. She is a comedian. She is a podcast. Pride the most important of all three of those how you can check out her new show the review review spelled. Different ways you can. Google figure it out for yourself. Give it the hell out for Riley and Leonard de it. Funny that I'm having on you on this show. I rather than good Christian. Well because I saw you posted an instant stories saying like. Hey any comedy friends WanNa be on my Mazel podcasts. And I immediately like meeting. Mimi means that we'll see. This is like a willing. I participants I did this. I did this specifically for this show in a way that windy with other shows. Because I think this show benefit from familiarity in pre existing relationship in a way that some shows. Don't 'cause it's just a treehouse. Hang show now baby now. That's what it is now. I've never put a close friends. Instagram story up and been like. Hey who wants to take on this show but pretty much the majority of the last half of the season. That's how we booked. It is just buddy paid off. I think it's paid off. How has it helped your commute's right in those Dan Commute? Where do you find? Now you've done review review for like four or five episodes. Now that you've released we've released three okay three. We've been doing it for since the dawn of time. What's the anecdotal evidence of how people experience it is that the commute is it in the bathtub with their lover man? I wish couples in the bath listening to our dumb show. That would be awesome like a romantic night. Double Bag or cloth holding hands clocking about we get a Lotta commutes. Commute commutes is what it's about. Which is what I do with mine. that's like when. I listened to a podcast at home. That's like if I'm doing chores nonstop but it's in the car. They say there's an unemployment problem and yet in my people are on these commute. I love it and that's the heartland is podcast listeners youtube personally what percentages podcasts. And what percentages music. Now because I've found sadly that have overtaken music a little bit in my adult life. The last three years rely rely heavily on my other friends who listen to music to remind me music. I just got into Motley crue. It's really crazy. I well I was telling my friend I was like. I think the reason. Nobody recommended Motley crue to me. Is that nobody thought I would like it. Which is understandable but I love it so much. It's like it's like the musical equivalent of amphetamines to me. I'm so white. Whatever yeah I find my music discovery Israel Delays meal ramshackle. Just saw that little dude His name's billy performance a little bill eyelashes Williams William Kailash Fifteen. Yeah Oh wait. We don't care for. We talked about billy. I wish I think one of the last shows we did. Didn't we We were talking about Sorkin. And then Bob it. Yeah the Bobby. Duke. Amy Sherman Palladino. Bobby Duca Brooklyn Brooklyn. We how did SORKIN and Bava Duke An eyelash? Come into the seems like because they were doing. Red Carpet Fluff Interviews with people for the Oscars a couple of weeks ago as you're listening to this or like a month ago and one of them was like well. You know you're musicians. And she was with her brother producer partner whose name I forget right now. And they're like what skinniest you she was with us and they're like well. What movies do you guys like embellish? I like Super Billy. I like aesthetic core of what you would expect and then famous was. I like Social Network moneyball pretty much anything by Aaron Sorkin and I'm there. Which kind of explains the appeal of his music which is higher low art clash of like Goth but also algorithm Taint of audience with So it's kind of A. It's a beautiful day. I wish more siblings would would collaborate thing. Going point. I'd like to make is that. I wish more siblings. Yeah I wish amy and Daniel Link Siblings married like that would be like breaking boundaries rock. That would be awesome twenty twenty. I did one time forecast to friend of mine. I was like twenty twenty. That's incest goes mainstream. What she disagreed with the take and I understand why. Get it but it's still early days. It's early days only Feb. We'll see I mean we're recording this a little bit in advance so we'll see when this podcast comes out. The incest describes you no way no Riley. What's your relationship with marvelous? Mrs May as well. Oh my God I rea- Palladino Fan before Gilmore K. I tried bun heads. Ag- I couldn't I couldn't shockingly but I remember 'em in theater. School had a friend who is a Jewish comedian and Was a funny she. It's yeah yeah. And she's like she's the one she goes. I saw this show about a Jewish comedian and I love it. And it's in the fifties and I started it and I couldn't stop and it's it's just so I think I remember. Starting it in one of my good friends was like kind of annoyed with it. Because she's like it's just like there's nothing being said it's like all fluff and it's not. I'm like I'm like yeah but it's a it's a nice pretty little hug sometimes and I actually found because it's like yeah in listening to your guys show as well as also my own experience. The standup isn't funny but in this episode that we're talking about today. The one liners made me laugh harder than any of the stand up in all three seasons has the case in a lot of episodes we like actual dialogue dialogue with each other is like shines the montage of the Ads Voice over. Does those like I was cackling. Then like any. There's like the little the little bits at anyway and a half minute montage that. Oh my God I remember like dragging my mouth computer and we're still here. It's eight minutes but I I love this show Loveridge Brosnahan. I would if Tony Shalhoub asked me to be hit by a bus in his name I would gladly Eilly. Would you get out there? Get hit by a bus of course in my name. I'm veering GIAMATTI territory. We all do now. What about if the following person asks you yeah Riley? Can you go get hit by a bus from me? Buddy Jason Bateman Kevin's currencies. If you saw I get hit by a bus right. Now you're getting a Waldberg fuck or what about? I'm GONNA see if Riley can get this. Because this has been a source of contention really and this is someone directly connected to get if you if you can get and you can get it but if you get this impression. Okay Riley. I need you to go out there and get hit by a bus for me. That's what needs to happen right now. Riley I don't know it's my Best Sterling K. 's Reggie it's no good. Can you do it again? No good some good. It's it's chaotic. Good it's good. It's a chaotic Riley. No I need you to go out there and get hit by a bus for me. You know that kind of sing song that thing. He really cool like a backpack rap hand motion while he does too. It's really amazing. Looks like the guys I went to high school like singing and his upper register up here with every every line he says I am doing like Lin. Manuel like kind of body language right now love go out there and get hit by a bus for me. Riley who you are mysterious strain I will. I've won this is us. I was in Black Panther in two thousand eighteen. That was two years ago. The longer I think the longer you do the impression the more I'm kind of like Oh. Yeah that's all just talk home. Thankfully enough okay wonderful. So in your estimation you've seen those season ranking the seasons thus far. Wow God it's been awhile since I've seen the other two for migos one three two. I think some people are saying one to think for me. It's one two three. There were moments of three that I'm like this is great but as a whole it didn't I'm going to say that nobody is three to one. I can't imagine the listener little bit three. I'm a little bit one three two but I'm almost three the the the last episode of three and we'll obviously talk about next. Episode is so good that I think Yeah Yeah Yeah in the syndrome that the Palladino often have words like let's hold back for half the season and then let's do our looks like actually to work for. Every episode of the season was as good as the finale. It's crazy. I mean not to be like backseat show runner on it. But like cut the episode order from eight to six. Get rid of the parents. Tony Shalhoub is the only main cast Pawlak. What's her name and Rose? They're all recurring. And maybe and just like a Premier Tonelli and make the episodes fifty minutes Max and put Jason Alexander in every single. Jason Alexander is the new. The new snack is he. Can he get it? He can get it. Wow he can get it Well I something about I like it. I like a Pudgy. He's stocky you know ground. Knock knock over a buddy of my you know that you know that Improv Troupe. Improvise Shakespeare Company Buddy minds in it and he said at a couple of shows Jason Alexander would just show up and then he approached him. He's like I want to do with you guys. Can I be in the show? And then they they've done like a bunch of shows is not a woman so they could. Of course yes. That's a fortunate traditionalism of that. Jason Alexander Is An alum of my school and I went to Boston University. And what is very funny is that they love like holding up like Julianne Moore and Jason. Alexander are famous acting school alums. Both of them dropped out of Bu. Because they're like by they don't care but no one ever brings up so it's like when parents come there like Jason Alexander Seinfeld ever heard of it. Yeah he's an alum and he came back one time because I'm sure they like paid a bunch of money. He came back and are they. Were expecting him to tell like. You're such great program you guys and he's just like well if you want to be here great if you also want to leave. That's fine doing all this shit out. He's just listen man. I don't think you need school. And of course all the admins or like running around trying to put out me TV go leave. Ucsb now unfortunately that's kind of like a Matthew mcconaughey with University of Texas Mile On. And I'm like did he. Yeah I think he dropped out. 'cause I think he attended for a little bit and now he's technically. He's technically faculty there and he does like sort of teach sometimes which. I can't imagine how I would love ranch the lecture. Yeah in the in the talk a little field trip today again. We do field trips and it's always pick up. Drug Oughta go out to the Waters Lincoln but this episode pretended Lincoln School Bus. Yeah and that's the new magic school bus place. It doesn't shrink you just drink inside of it. This is three zero seven. It's called Marvelous radio which I guess that's title sure. That's definitely a placeholder that somebody forgot morals Yeah works The Amazon Prime Synopsis and Suzy Head Back to New York City and Hustle for work. Abe is elated. When someone publishes a piece he wrote in the maizels gather for the brisk of astronauts baby. And now it's time for a seventy we do in every episode of the podcast. Suddenly we call. Well we're GONNA pop around. The pop is so off key and fly it really straining older all this episode three seven marvelous radio the culture or now puff around the culture. Whatever the hell it's called and you're the Antioquia matchmaking. And that actress Chita Rivera. Just like you stop Jerry Lewis from doing a raisin in the sun not as excited as I was for that Malaysia Twat with Vincent Presidential Merman till the Schlafly. Yeah she world besides astroid. Sammy Davis Junior. But that's why we love you. We had the boys are awesome. You read Walter Winchell last night did you read. Watch Walter winchell it escaped me Phyllis Schlafly. Who's a major sort of off screen presence in this and now we can all Imagine Cate Blanchett? Who's playing her on Mrs America On? Hulu coming in a few months baby event of the century mark as on. I will watch the fuck. Donald Glover did the theme song for it. Really Mrs America. Yeah he did it all right awesome. Thank you for being writing to leave when I say staff podcast for your memoirs my memoir keep threatening to leave when I saved up seventy border guessing. GonNa leave when I say no. That's very fair. The Ethel Merman Vincent Price menage-a-trois. I do like when they play the game of. Oh Sophie Lennon's a sex is horny. Yeah all the time and I like that better than like. Oh I'm just dumb person who doesn't know how anything works. You know constantly having weird sex. She Got Clinton from Desi Arnez. Great rough sex with Wesley. And the previous episode Jerry Lewis playing role in raisin in the sun and all black cast very interesting and also believable maybe on some level for for that point in time. Yes bye bye Birdie and then frigging. Sammy Davis Junior. Where the boys are. Bye Bye Birdie gets brought up a lot. I feel like I was watching it. I was thinking of of That segment and how often would come up the sheer amount of times? I say bye. Bye Birdie yeah well. It's such a literal fashion joke. They love bye. Bye Birdie Birdie replete rinky boats boats. Yeah repeat boots one of those things. And the the last two episodes of the season three seven. Three eight remind me like. Oh they're not like Pasadena. Tv people even though they've worked in TV for like decades there Ian musical either nerdy. Yes like this is. This is what they care about. And when they have like their off period when they weren't doing any of these shows or they're like between Gilmore between bun heads and this and kind of like that fallow period when they would do interviews. They would just talk about the stuff they've seen recently on Broadway like nothing. I didn't care for Blah Blah Blah. I would love it. They were the only prominent celebrities in the world. That would go on record saying like Hamilton. Not For me didn't care for the way they risk with this like they're they occupy the space that musical theater like nerd like as a cultural phenomenon. Takes up like if if there's a Scifi world on that exists in television. That's like a huge fan base and the theater nerd like group is is represented by Amy Sherman. Palladino she has occupied will occupy that space. That type of humor. That type of like you know people who do set people who do choir show choir in Salt Lake or whatever like that group of people is represented by a ESPN. I wonder if when Glee came out. They were like what the fuck is this. I was houseware Leones. Just GonNa say Glee came out what the fuck is surely is like you know because I was like oh a musical television show. We haven't done this cop rock. Maybe it'll be good. Yeah Cop rock is a police musical show by thinks Stephen Bochco go onto make NYPD blue or it's the guy did hillstreet anyway is the guy who did crime procedural. Well what if I made it in my title? I'm a fan of musicals. I'm a fan of Kim. A meal fan my mom. Oh my fan but But yeah I I guess it's them and then maybe like some of the Ryan Murphy's to even though it's not glee may like the politician occupies that for some people just from like cassie on it. But what else do you think would like belong to this sub genre on TV right now because it's not even specifically like they're making me. It's like it's not even show like about stand up but it's like even in the amount of Miss Julie that we see it's like it's not even the theatre joked it's they just know the work they are of the world so well so it's like everyone's rea- like they just know what he's going to go to the US liar. It's like this type of humor. That exists in late. Show we heard. Yeah like Hammy nerd world that I grew up with in Minneapolis and like the public schools in there. So many kids who did like theater arts and stagecraft and went to ren fair and did double double sticks like that type of humor is so representatives. Afc World it's like she does it to the best of. It's like the apex of its charming. Where you'd get tired of it and personally if a dude was like okay you know like like it was the Tucson high musical numbers marriage toward that really tied together in the way but I mean specifically the sense of humor like that. It's like this corporate like I dunno like pre office sort of humor. I know what you're saying. You know what she's saying. Yes random random K. E. that type of thing not touching that one with I'm not touching that one with the tuber dramatic not touching that one Mile Lady. You know. That type now does beg the question. Would this show be better suited? Authenticity wise? If instead of stand up comedy Midge. Mazel was going to be like a trailblazer in the musical theater. Community of New York City. It would be much harder to depict. It would be much harder to like system that because this is all about her being a like a a woman in a man's world whereas acting is not no but I'm saying there's a composer. What if she was like the first Oh Gosh struggling to name a woman composer from Broadway. Who did fun Home Janine to sorry? That's her name when she was like the Janine to story of the nineteen sixties writing musicals. Yeah I'm just I mean. Obviously kind of damage on would not buy this. It would not sell. It'd be so hard to market but in terms of like what the Palino's no in his DNA. Yeah rather than like my father. Did BORSCHT belt stand up? So I guess I get it would be fun. Amazon would not buy I would. I think it's like what's what's movie. Yeah that would be a great move. Yeah that'd be great. What's cool about like approaching it from stand-up Lens and then still going into that theater? World is like for somebody people who like aren't of that sensibility. Arnett that sense of humor. It's a way of like I think they have a good mix of like this is how other people see Theater. And then they also slip in the humor of and for those who are in it. Here's what it is really like. Well I think what's really special about the some of the music choices they do are like so strangely on the nose. Like what we did Bobby Darren's beyond the sea when we go to Florida or like what if we do pennies from heaven twice in the Vegas emphasis and then the ones are like singular and unique are the ones that are needle drops essentially from musicals and like. Oh why would you? You would not use that in like a dramatic television show generally so long farewell. Yeah in only goes to the LUMBERJACK Lee. Right yeah or the end of it Or when they do like they've done music man needle jobs really sometimes like a little more esoteric stuff. That isn't so recognizable that gives it like such an interesting texture to Barbra streisand in the first episodes right. Yeah that's exactly what I'm thinking too. So yeah it'd be interesting. They have an overall deal with the Amazon. They bought the rights to some other book from the sixties which felt like. Oh you're going to adapt that as well like a word just saying. Hey We'd love the K. Or something it was like well. They have the costumes. Let's just let's ride this train I gotta I gotTa Google this so I know exactly what I'm talking about But they did. Also it was announced. I don't know if it's still happening or not the DA's remember last summer they were talking about doing gypsy. Finally doing like a Gypsy film adaptation. Another maybe starring Melissa McCarthy which I don't think would be the best pick for here yeah I mean it would be for for aiming to write and direct which would be kind of wild right because she's never done film really but then again it's like has she never done film or is she just doing film right now. And they're like cutting off twenty minute. I mean I mean essentially then yeah. These seasons are like yeah. The last. The finale was movie. Yeah fill out her. To make a a scorsese length you know she would have a ball. It would actually be interesting. Like three and a half hour long. Yeah look fucking in a woman in two and a half hours of it is tapped in lots of two and a half hours just like people shooting people in being like did you shoot the guy. I shot the Guy I thought you shot. The Guy did you wrong. No you shut the wrong guy or worried about forty different exchanges. Exchanges of like the unions. Med I don't care that they're mad when you should. You should and should be a little fuzzy guy so like we were talking about does open with that montage of Mitch doing all the Social Baldwin is exhausted. They're taking weeks off for the tour so Mitch to make money isn't doing stand up gigs. She's doing squarespace ads and Blue Apron instead I. I don't know why and may actually tobias but anytime I see anyone in recording studio now I'm like oh the podcast like Astra did you stand. Oh thank you I tweeted about that and I'm also angry that you just said that without re tweet. I'm sorry maybe I saw you inception them my head because I was like basically ad Astra is like a two and a half hour long movie about the worst podcast of all time just like he travels to date and he likes to Podcast Dad James Graves hidden on something when it's like someone making a pockets for their father and their father doesn't listen to it. Wow Wow shots out to all of our daddy now. My Dad would listen if he could figure it out and that that'd be my dad. Would to my family calls the Internet sketch. I do podcasts. So there they think they watch my podcasts all the time oh well they have like a two thousand five concept of pockets. Where like back win? Podcast when it was like I invented every there were video. Podcasts video and audio podcasts war concurrent on the store and you could just download videos like the Ricky Gervais. Podcasts was a video as I remember that thing about So yeah I think think the reason they're doing all this these radio ads because it is quicker money. Maybe they get paid immediately. You get paid bribes campaign and we know. I think they're just doing it as like this is a. This is a piece of history. They do this all the where they're like. Oh and then. We found this out in doing research. So they're like they're like compiling all this research from the The period and then anything may find interesting. They just this is also what they did. It's interesting if it if it amy. Asp's interest it's going in the show. I did love that like I did. Love the shots in the twelve years that I spent watching this opening montage I did love just the little bits of like her her. Her feet hurting. Yeah yeah that's a real. If you're standing the whole time we love acknowledging that and then they did it three more times and I'm like I'm ready for the opening. Yeah I think it was the feet hands or thousand. Oh Hey Daniel. What's up buddy right? Imagine if you saw those people like if you were just on that train and there were these two women like no one else is talking and these feet hands feet breath that would be a top. That's a that's a schizophrenic. I shut up and I also wanted to. Point on opening is so like they are like really stretching the credibility or like the like the goodwill of the audience from having them just having been on tour one second ago to now. They're in New York and I'm like watching it going and my skipping an episode like Everybody's thinking that in the beginning of this episode and they just like keep it going for so long and it takes them eight minutes to be like we've been here for two months. I'm like again. We didn't have time for those scenes because we did have to catch up on. What's going on with Abe? Exactly what's going on with rose? We need those cialis necessary for the narrative bye Birdie got hard and Horny foaming. The boys were at tat. Fancy like God feels like a conversation with Shirley Shirley I'm leaving. I'm leaving and she was like Jesus fucking Christ people living with us. You talking about getting hard like did you can stop. It hurts my feeling eighty la. I don't like that either make moisture show that it's crazy that later on. Moishe and Joel moment at the at the Bris it was sure was. Washington hawking motions like becoming a complete villain in so strange. I forgot how because it's been so long since I've watched this season and yeah I'm like wow is horror of much earlier like the world's worst people again it's so hard to even want to dignify any of the parental storyline like the breath of air. It's just so baffling all but someone. We definitely need to acknowledge their return onto the show. Good morning the morning chester. It's not like you slept well. I miss an orange whereas fixating either way. I liked it. How would you like your page today? Chester Jackie I okay. So that's conner rat live. Who's a New York alive and reform with him when I met when you met when I met? Megan how he was on that show. Oh my God and I talked to him and he's amazing. As he listened he no. I actually told him he should listen to that. He should be on the show. Oh Yeah so thanks to be on the live show and we do it he is. He hosts a sister podcasts. On this very network called dead ice. Oh Oh my God. That's right realized was handed him. Connor ratliff chester himself. Mr Criss cross the had come fast. I do love. The Danial is our own. Chris Cross. Hell yeah crisscrossing. The end of the century Dana was like y'all remember crisscross right like you. Did I do that of the Mazel universities like Yak for this? So there's all Jackie and tester really gets me living together. He's funny and more in this consortium in this conception like he now works for like the associates like he's my now part of the business and they're just he just doesn't it's. It's so interesting like when I was you know what it reminded me of probably because I've been in a fever dream last twenty four hours when I was a kid. I would build forts in my house in my grandparent's house like out of Like thing that was around and so one of the things would be a room for instance would be underneath an Ottoman. That could barely squeeze through and so like this house is becoming like one of my childhood for. Its where it's like. Where DID PEOPLE SLEEP? Oh you know just like in a drawer here and here a little bit in their existence. Yeah it makes me wonder if they even if they still have the gaslight set code safe right. What the Heck Relieving. Leaving on that note. No she's hydrating she's hydrating. She needs it. Okay and then the things we can talk about next. Is that a good segue the things we can talk about met. I really like that actor who plays Archie. I think he's very sweet in good. We didn't talk about in the last episode that much where like they went out to a bar. He took his awesome. Yeah in Joe was like what are you doing? You're going to ruin your marriage. Men Go hold. Imaging Watch so. I think that those actors are very well cast I think so too. I really like Archie. That guy because he like he screwed up in. I liked conflicts. Like this where it's like. This is probably mostly the case of what actually happens. It's not it's not most people cheat on their spouses. It's people that like entertain the idea. And then they're like frien- catches them in a in a in that great space. Where it's like. I see your intention. I don't like it was it was cool to have this a while but I did enjoy that kind of like gray area with Joel. Who had gone to like the full extreme being like? Hey that's not good and our cheese like what are you know like you whatever. Yeah but I remember it like because I haven't seen it so long and then seeing that scene of of Archie living in the space with Jol Iran. I I WANNA get to the Bris. There was a moment when I'm like I don't know I forgot how I wanted. I guess more imaging imaging imaging imaging I wanted like I love seeing her side of this conflict and I was like. Let's get to also felt that I don't really because I feel like they were playing. The same thing is that it's like I miss her. I miss her. I'm like I get it on the audience I do too. I don't care that you hit your head on a pipe I would like to shoot. Yeah exactly I also feel like But I do like him a lot. I think a theme Palladino is that we have not yet and it goes back to talking about about the fort. It's like I feel like ASAP. Loves PEOPLE CRASHING OTHER PEOPLE'S HOUSES? Only to sleep only in their home and people staying in someone else's home. We've got the parents staying in Malaysia. Shirley's extended sleepover. We have arches or on the couch. We have chester in any given episode. There's like four or five. Who have been ousted from their homes and are sleeping inside somebody. We have freaky in all my God Gilmore Girls. I'm an esquire. Otj With Lugano Periods Jazz crashing with crashing community building. Because she makes world. So here's the community of people that like you could stay within. Everyone is still connected in some way and I imagine the Palladino is to be the kind of people that do not host people so for them. This is like lower shall i? Actually I think that that's not the case you think. I think that they're the kind of people who are like love to host. I do too I think they love to host because they love to be quote unquote put out like I think they like the busiest like you. WanNa stay in there. You want to okay. We've gotTA guess from for a reason why I wanted to get the sheets now. We have dipped make extra food. They wouldn't be as. Oh maybe we got we got. We got to get the food. We've got to get them. We gotta get briefly talk about you gotta get the food. They would not be afraid to put someone else out. Like I feel like there'd be like is it cool if we stay for a day or a week and I think they sang other people's houses. I think people over being UN being an unmarried couple with no kids is kind of like your permanent status. And she's like this forever aunt for the entire world on angle on forever. Danny Dan Ian Amy. The aunt and uncle to the world. I really islet. I feel like they have this really weird crazy eccentric house that they're always having people come to see their hang out at tall pink and they're like. Oh my well. My mother-in-law staying with me right now but I believe in love. They love it. Okay sleepovers I'm like okay for my birthday this year the move out like a big air. What's what year you're turning three one three thirty one? That's the year of the sleepover. Oh yeah no famously. We all know nothing dirty but yes three one thirty one. We'll definitely have a sleepover now. But do it like. There's a few beds better when it's to bring sleeping bags and there's a game of sardines and you have to stay up to a certain amount at a certain hour than that. There's no beds. No beds it.

All this shows like place in the industry or conversation where it's like. Oh Hey movie. Star Zachary Levi shoes. And do you WANNA come back for like a scene and a half and season three sterling K. Brown do you WANNA come on for five episodes because to me? This feels like the only other. Tv show. I could remember kind of doing it like this was west wing back in the day. Had this reputation when there was like so so fewer. Tv shows on of everyone wants to be on our show and they only paid people scale for star stuff and they only fucking big bird. Dead Big Bert. Who was going to say that Laura Dern on US poet laureate for one of these things where they're like? Yeah you WANNA be on the show right and they would have ever in the industry is like Paul plea on so it's like Zachary leaf onto episodes of season three so mind blowing to me. Yes you wonder what? Esp has like on him. Yeah that's what it is. Yeah it's like it's like she's the she's the Ladimir Putin of TV EXAC. You'RE GONNA WANNA come yet. Said we've got the P. Tape. They've dropped and listeners. Hashtag dropped the Amazon and Amazon. Prime Daddy Beza So rose has a conversation with Bobo Tilda Swinton at some whatever uppity low fancy club. I would watch a film about that woman. Yes she was fine right. Engine Edinburgh the Holy Grail of BACHELORS HEAD OVER HEELS. Love so quickly marriage a townhouse townhouse anyway. Yeah I like actress a lot. I like her more than rose rose. Now it's so so she goes to. She goes to the hospital to talk to bench. What are you doing here? Sid Specialize in Benjamin you and marry him about pushing the two of you together. Mrs Wiseman hopes I've been reading your life causing you to make plans. That didn't pan out because of her because I set you up with her. It's all my fault. No no this is. Why didn't understand how serious this phase was that Mary was going through? This comedy thing might to Harvey's just not the right girl for you. She was weird. Yes but there's weird weird. I thought I knew which weird but apparently Rosa. Why do you think she wears his hat? Midge was kind of weird and we was look. I've been with a lot of women. I heard that excessive no of course not enough to have experienced a lot of experience less than many others. I'm sure that's true what I'm trying to say is that you have nothing. Nothing to feel guilty about really major was right for me. I was not right for her. You're not just saying that you did a nice thing. Rose a very nice thing and very sweet for coming here today. The very nice the Nice thing was the nice thing when I set them up. This is a get out of my hair talk to my car. It's just like what the fuck I thought I couldn't hate rose anymore. And now they're just I mean. They threw her under the bus off this season and then they found a bus. That was driving underneath that. But how is like I I remember watching I just? It's shock like were. Oh it's just awful but I thought I thought that was. I thought he did a great job with that same. I thought that was good. Like That position. You're in where you do when someone's to you with like. I'm so sorry and then there's such a mess that you have to steward their emotions in a different way and it's like it calmed down. It's fine rose like twist. I'm good BUBBA and Yeah very very say no. It's all such a bummer and then In the last episode. You could see Abe writing up a review of ashes play Asher being Arthur. That's what we found out. The yelp review the season three plot a becomes a blogger. Yeah but yeah this plot like a review thing. I don't know why it never comes back like it's just something for him to do. They're like well we're in. We're in Miami eight needs something to do. It does come back but it's just oh that the what happens You guys talking about it but it's so weak it's not important. I don't I don't care comes back way too late. Right is what it is. It should come back it like. It's like this happens. He gets published and then he goes he goes like he makes too big of a deal about it and then the whole joke of the episode is Abe like really excited that he was published in the New York Times. And then everybody's like so. Where's the big splash? And nothing happens. And so that's the joke but it's like yeah that's right hoop it. Why not just have it immediately lead to what eventually leads to because otherwise it's just seems like it's so does make you wish they would skip the beatnik stuff all together. This season an unnecessary step. Yeah to get to the office boy. So there's like so. There's that in the national doesn't want him to publish it. There's the the Bris for Young Christians Christian Shin which is hilarious. Baby's father noah is unfortunately not with us today. Do you know why he's actually not with them. What's Your Oklahoma Horn Oklahoma? Who was he The horse I duNNo. Oh good. That's why a big bushy beard will excuse. Nobody from being like if Sterling K. Brown was like I have to make the movie to fuck you like but he has to do Oklahoma. She's like we're going to write the episode. You think Amy Sherman. Palomino has the Black Panther. No I think she may be. Somebody took her to Black Panther and she wouldn't take your hat off. I remember. I remember them. Railing Superhero movies in Gilmore or like Batman or like. They were railing on those genre movies. That's an important voice in the lexicon. I'll just say it and I meant what I said. How often do we think as P goes to the movie theater more than she goes back to that conversation describing? What a tiring. What Person Agean going to the theater? It sucks that. It's a rich person's game right. It's ecstasy like immigrants. We get the job done. And then all the people nine hundred dollars springsteen did Broadway the ticks like android. Oh my God disappointing. Disappoint wait for the net flicks to drop they might. Did you hear that same might censor Hamilton? When they put the movie out why yeah so like so they filmed Hamilton with the original Broadway. Cast BOB a couple years ago. When they were still performing on Broadway they put in a vault and now they're like well. We're going to release in theaters. But they made a deal with Disney and Disney doesn't release rated R. Movies so the lyrics in the language content and Hamilton would guarantee in our rating. So they're like. Are they going to like bleep or like mute like around? That would actually like it. They shouldn't do that but to watch like a bleep to Hamilton would be very funny like running throwing away my thrown away so then it's at the Bris that is grill adjusting Lupe as Astros. She's fantastic reliable person. What a one. She's very funny. But that's when shillue been major talking about Phyllis Schlafly. Yeah it is. That is a nice like I really liked. That see. This is what should be on the show. He's like warming her story and it's relevant and he's talking about his things a little bit but he needs a glide in and I don't want Abe is a pov character ever again. I want it through midges remits interests or seek a good dad in this too. It's just it's a really nice single. Does he single dad? She's a right-wing nutjob she's come out against Nixon right. We don't like Nixon because she thinks he's too left wing. That doesn't sound real. She also said that Eisenhower. Only got an office because of secret kingmakers in New York. I'm not sure if you know what ethnicity she's referring to with the words kingmakers New York that one of them just got part of his penis cut off and she's an idiot. She's not. That's what makes her dangerous. This is doing a commercial for a paycheck. And then that's when it comes if you're going to have a voice you'd better be careful what that voice says. Wow Hey Tony Shalhoub run me over and then tell me next up on my neck like practical advice. This is real. This is real. Abe has felt in this whole like we go like he goes into. I don't know why we need. That's going to Columbia and like all that I'm like yeah this is the Columbia stuff was baffling right so insane that Shea seen wandering to men just like John and I'm like why are we. What why and then we can do this. And I'm like this is yeah. This is a this is a really smart down to earth man who's like guiding his daughter and that's great. Yeah Columbia's was what was supposed to say like I'm glad I made this choice and then turns out. Everyone hates me anyway. What the fun just fell mean right it. Yeah everyone hated him but then also like have a good life Mr Weisman. Goodbye lay it was it was so. Josse made this point on a version of an episode. That came back yes. She said she doesn't like it when actors play the characters that they're playing with a disdain or disregard for right you can sense like kind of like snootiness or snobbery and I think that's true sometimes the way Daniel writes characters in the shows to where he sort of you can since the disdain nine what the actors are doing but you can since the disdain. He has for them. Sometimes it was like. Isn't it April tool guys and terrible? Yes yeah yeah. She is a massive materialistic bitch. Like well you're making making that. I guess you're right. So we also find out you know we got a little. Phyllis schlafly historical shutout tying into Cate Blanchett. We also found out that breaking and entering in the sixties was legal if you were a white woman. Yeah Oh my God looks like you could just walk by jaw early. Oh my gosh. She's in the neighborhood. She asked the door guys to like. Bring it up to nine and she just walks into a ladies home and she don't even that it's like she checked to make sure no one was in there she could hear like kids running around and this woman talking floats and that's all well and fine. Yeah USA live here. I just plays just a wonderful crystallization of like I own. This show. I own this city. Yeah privileges so in bed in my DNA recognize anymore and and then the ladies like Oh yeah take your time. We'll come you she's like can. I see the kitchen she goes. It's all yours. Yeah no you definitely can't see the catching the fuck Outta here. I am busy dealing with my toddler with my young children. Who the fuck are you? I don't care that used to live here. I'm doing laundry. Get the fuck out of my house. So strange and then also like speaking to the Phyllis schlafly thing. It's an my pronouncing it right. Schlafly Schlafly doesn't matter. I'm just GONNA call her. Carol Keep Lynch Carol. What's your favorite Christmas Carol Riley? God what don't you see Christian in the middle of a good Christian fine that's not a good Christian Fund. It's not no you should think about it. That's for all people of all faiths or non face or whoever or non face non face to face faith off a face off. There was a Christian radio station in my hometown where the billboard said give yourself a facelift. Nice truly faces. They were so proud of They were. They couldn't wait to put that. I can't wait to give you a faithful and I don't want it. But anyway she record she's supposed to do a live radio ad and she has a crisis of conscience in the midst of doing it in there and we is true. Not really now in the middle of a miandi. Add one time I was like no. This isn't right well often do you? WanNa do I kinda thing like for tracks or like. Do you WANNA do ads for Tyson? And I was like what no it wasn't Tyson. It was something like some like you know. There's been companies where it's like yeah. Kfc Snow support factory farms so weird. Yeah well and there's been a few things. Actually speaking Christian funders. Advertisers are like. Hey we have this like meditation devaux which even like opposed to. But then you like read it or using. It's like women. We pray that use up man. It's like Oh my God only really regressive staff but but the point being my co host and I and the people that had come due diligence to see like oh does this actually suck right while now like yeah definitely which I guess maybe speaks to. Well I did play a little bit. Has How many women are really running for office at this point. You know what I mean. They're like well. They hear the lady running for an okay. Great it's probably good 'cause she's and once again. We see how I did. Not Politics is the number one problem and we do see it really about class. Yeah which is so. Then she has a crush is a crisis of conscience she finished the ad and then. I D like the beat where everyone in the studio awesome fucking Moncia. Suzy Shit was really might need to play that. Oh okay would like you to play that the Chico. I love her she's terrible. See if I can find it. I can't believe you didn't isolate. It was just explaining timmy. This morning. Atomic bomb a marvelous gift that was given to our country by God. Holy Fuck this woman's a monster schlafly or schlafly actually said that to say it's a true quote that wasn't just like a Palladini exaggerate show great. That's what I was saying to. Hell is going on here. Plus a segues a terror. I read did you also tell the children that we can't let certain? Welfide minorities future a few times where she slips into the Little Lois Griffin Vibes. But few and far between which is funny. Like I don't know I mean. The last episode gets a little more politically engaged. Kinda in terms of like the intersection. Allie of like Mitch realizes that the Black Band has to say a different hotel. And then she's given the she's entrusted with shy Baldwin's sexual identity but then there's like weird beats that keep kind of repeating like. Is this a woman in the sixties political awakening like Phyllis Schlafly sex because remember Wessel protester and season one on like she likes so there is the whole thing? It's just kind of like it's a low ramshackle and then the rest of the episodes pretty much taken up by all the Sophie Linen. Miss Julie Stuff and ooh Rob. What was your experience watching this? It was really rough does like wow that is so I mean I guess they had to do it because it's where I I don't know it just didn't really like I don't. I didn't feel it was warranted earned. Somebody's warranted it just feels like why did they have to throw this character? They they build these characters and I just throw them under the bus. So like Cavalierly I. I actually liked the way this played out in the sense of like the slow burn. She comes out like she misses accused of being but then she comes out and then she knocked something over and the rest is like kind of a spiral by the way another. Palladino ISM is a two female leads watching bad feeder or performance commenting to each other doing like sides talk from from the cheap seats and and then she like totally has she has no confidence and then reverts back to the capital our L. Hard. So that was the craziest thing was when it cut to her and she had somehow stuffed something in her drink. Yes I yeah I did notice put on your plate like she has like the fake belly or whatever the fake belly dude and she is she had to go off stage it is. It is like disaster. You're right Oh my gosh. Oh that's Also make sense is that it's like if she's doing her state of I love that like all of the cues like the Tech Q. Still ran for this show. It's like light chain. The bell rang like the like this day. Traders trump is like I guess we keep going like and she was just doing your thing and like it didn't I'm like why are you still going if she's doing stop? I feel like there's like a pretty even though it's so broad and cartoony there is like a really interesting metaphor in it about the idea of pushing yourself rather than like going with what was your comfort zone and like who you are as an artist or you try to do and how confident actually works itself out and what actual risk looks like but yeah it was. It was one of those things of empathy where it's like. Oh Rosa neighbor loss so we feel as viewers watching them or like. This is uncomfortable to watch so we feel super uncomfortable watching where it's like. I guess it works but it's not fun. It's like watching her perform and then become a Sophie Lennon at the end was like. It's like watching Louis C. K. 's career go pretty good. Comparison is because like think about it like you you like. She's like I'm going to do this. Thing is going to be great. I'm gonNA try something bigger. And then her ego gets in the way just and she's way means way into it to an extent that everybody and then and then you start looking around the people who are like yelling for it and are excited about that. You're like am I going insane? People think this is good. It's like that is what it feels like. Yeah and that you like Suzy like what the like Yeah I I did like you had this opportunity and then this is. This is why broke my heart because Suzy's so pissed off. Yeah in the seeds. And she's like I'm GonNa kill her but then when she looks at her from the wings. That's all Oh my God I feel like you know show many emmys seen bursting performances that I do not like before like outside of Mazel even like I never watched that. Hbo Show She Day where? She's like a nurse. It's her in New Jersey national and Laurie. Metcalf a pretty amazing cast. But I've seen stuff of hers I don't like but she is so locked in a mash. Oh fifteen minutes of this at the scene outside before like when she's confronting Sophie outside. I'm like Oh shit. That was heartbreak like that was a make us the first time in a good long while this show got me guy you yeah me too. I was like choked up very visits. I see so I mean you see Susie like it's like you know. She's pissed at Sophie. But it's also it's like Oh this could have been so big for her career and it and she cared about so oh it was just so good it was so good you asked me to get you a shot shot on your chicken doubts your choke stop dare you limb for you. Bernie went out on a limb for you the Investors Bernie Sanders and limb. Limb for you we got to start up you all conspiring against me. Hey Cob Bellevue tells her bring met especially you why. So why? Why do that for her? You were trying to prop her up by bringing me down. Let's go walking away from me. Yeah I'm walking away because you want nothing but a fraud with Jello when you're stuck on Butler and your lemon wedges and you wonder if the really sad thing is sophie done it. I watched you were her every single day. And you were good. Fuck that you weren't great. A great fucking serious actress and you had it all right there in the palm of your hand and all you had to do was having guts to follow through and do it and you didn't your fucking folded like a deck of cards. Harry new hurry new one. That you didn't have the stuff to make it on Broadway. He was an idiot he knew and I did not have to take you down for her. You not her competition. You are not even in the same league. She's got guts. That is the difference between Mitch Mazel and a Great Sophie. Lennon your stock for now but she is going to be a God damn elections. I've settled fucking urge loose the minute I get home so I like this because I actually thought it was interesting to have this scene. Where she were Midge was like I can't do this. Phyllis Schlafly Shit and then have this afterwards. It was a little bit of a payoff to show Midge even though mid I feel like you could spin it. As like Midge is like such a difficult client only a really difficult client would go into a commercial and then at the commercial it sells before. Do it like fuck you ahead of time. Like we don't all show up and she had been like running lines so it's like yet it. Yeah but at the same time it's like it is a little bit of a path to show that like she's like the reason. I can't do this even though I've read every other ad that like the most ridiculous the best cigarettes to smoke while you're pregnant you know I'm a woman is that she is like a gutsy person who has a standard. You know you could definitely easily see Sophie Lennon. Shell for Schlafly. Yeah it was. It was really sad to watch the sophie breakdown. Because it's like I've seen like I've seen that happen. Does it my friend who it's like in the way that it's like the the reverting back to what have you seen exactly like into that level? But it's like I don't know I think especially with like comedy people it's like going to a place vulnerability and then like that being terrifying and hard and then being like look. I'm just going to a bit and like and it's like oh it's like at is a tangible thing and like to see it on that level at the Medicine State. Even if like you probably wouldn't see something that atrocious. Yeah in life but just the just the core of that idea. I think it's so good. It's like you were so close like you were there. Were all there for you and you don't have to it's again to boomerang back to the fully off topic conversation at the beginning of this episode about looking foolish for believing something kind of rather than looking mean for saying something mean like Susie and this is like I put my chips on you and it wasn't just you know it was business but like I did believe in you and I thought you had it and I was so excited that one run through we did and I had stars is then you let me down in a big way. And that's really hurtful and I feel foolish in like feeling that heartbreak on her. Pardon it worked it worked for me fully also was like Whoa. This is probably the only show or piece of media. I've ever even really seen like that. Gives agents and managers and representation like the League you it explores like why somebody would with intelligence might want to do this job Because every other iteration every other like show about Hollywood or show about entertainment shows agents and managers in the light of like Caesar Sycophants the people who will some your blood money and it's always played for laughs or played for? Like you know psyched. I'm cold medicine but I know what you make. It is now. It's like it's like there's a heart to it and it's like there is a relationship and like a belief in someone and like we can do this together and like an actual care rather ginge. Yeah realistically too. Because Suzy as business minded she has to make money. She's not there to be like She doesn't she doesn't wear hunter sleeve in the sense that she's like it's all about the art she's like No. Let's fucking do these dumb commercials? Yeah commercials and then it's like. Let's get the best actor so that we can make money and even like in the early stuff with like. I loved her standing up for herself with Midge in terms of like I need sophie as a client because this is also my job and like I need to make money and like as much as I love you. I need to pay for my house like yeah. I I like other podcasts. Outside of this one. Alice number one forever number. One SUSI is said to both Midge. But she meant it with one of them and I don't feel like you might lose ten for twitter. Qna tweet got a good amount of questions for this one. Nice three Krista s wise midge radio ads and stuff comedy shows when she's back in New York I yeah I guess it was just the thing we were talking about of them wind to show a different thing and to show those nice little podcast. Busse especially when even when they're like eating and which is like why aren't I doing stand up? Why aren't I doing because we gotta make money? It's like I'm a comedian. Which is probably like the gambling thread like they want cash. Yeah hard I threaten this gambling thing. It was like pretty yeah subtle. It was down was deft at Saint Saucy said what commercials would you do if you got paid in Merch? Ooh That's a really good pass. Gration thank you saw sleigh. One one steak he wants to do love me. Undies. I wouldn't I love Chili's do sure fricken I mean Oh yeah third love way. Are they sponsor of any or shows nope? Oh so I'll give you my discount they sponsored. Ucf a little bit of ood. Wow what merch. If Billy Razors did one oh I got him. Billy pyeho yeah. That's good that's great. Yeah Pyeho Yeah. They're just down the street from us. I wish that Asahi would release their non alcoholic beer in the United States because they have this non alcoholic beer called like healthy late and it's like only made in Japan and it is a tastes identical to us. He light beer like I. I got some at a restaurant in Vancouver and tasted I immediately like was like I need to see the CAN. This is real beer like it's welfare. And so she brought. The candidate was not only. Was it non alcoholic? It was zero alcohol like a little bit like zero and I was like. Oh my God this event so I want them to be a sponsor and they could pay me in March Katie. I would cry tell. Is that controversial so controversial? That said it should have been non-reaction reaction was the worst episode as P show ever now God. Katie Jo Eighty Katie's. She did three of these emojis. Teeth ones I mean Vineyard Valentine from his worse half the bond heads up you ever watch bunheng across the universe to this Bun Yeah across the universe that whole thing and fall of that that knocks it down a few pegs. So let's say no I would say no to that but you know what on that note? Page said the timing and pace of the season seems so much more. Like Gilmore Gilmore girls calling a year in the life compared to the previous seasons of Mazel. Like it hate it. There's definitely a leisure to it. Where it's like we're just GONNA do this for a little. Yeah LE- aspect of like everything. What I was talking about before with everything that Asp finds like slightly intriguing about that period of history she just throws in the show with no no justification whatsoever is just. I mean it's gotTa go if you want tight. Nice episode with meaningful beets in it. I gotta go 'cause it's not or it's the backdrop but the moments that that they create during those montages and during those like the jets don't ever justify like he's not moving. Yeah you know the extended vignettes Ashley Wins. Like dirty scene. And the less they're taking tie it's like also the structure of where there is that it's like they're on a break from tour so there's not even like a time limit thing that's like moving anything it's like not only are we wait period of waiting for tour to start. We're also going to add these things that don't add anything to the ply and I'm trying to articulate in a way where it's constructive because there are shows like there are shows constructed like rocket ships or like are so efficient like Olympic runners. There's no fat on them. There's no seen that doesn't lead into the next thing. That doesn't mean to the next like fleabag. Kinda like that watchmen was like that on. Hbo that last year. And then there's they are shows where there are sort of detours indulgences and like. Oh this isn't quite about like the main thrust of it but it still fully like honesty successions. Kinda like that. We're not every scene is about like who's going to succeed Logan but it's still like deeply pleasurable and I'm wondering Greg's entire Arc de Never GonNa stick everything the Greg does is for that Roy. Yeah I'm like him getting a big apartment funny shit yeah and so you have to wonder why that is because with the version is like Greg getting an apartment on succession is the version of that on Mazel. Like surely screaming in the street for Ethan about different kinds of soups is it. I didn't hate that actually. That is one thousand screaming. That was good because I think it's like those. Those moments are like Nice. Little breeders a nice little fun things that it's like we're not having to fully like lock in be like okay. We're all on this mission to like drive the plot it's like nice little tangents but then when it's too much then it's like you start succession. Joey the the central plot line of succession is like this incredibly dark lake. Patricide and like and like the power that money holds over the blood ties of family and like how that corrupts our entire society which is a much darker themes like. Is this lady with gumption. GonNa make you know it's like it's like really crazy to be like like if those greg scenes are the icing on that cake. These Shirley scenes are the icing on that icing. Yeah there's very little cake. I get what you're saying. All right gang one episode. This episode like three or seven was a little killer. Lot of filler. Yeah like yeah like until that Sophie Lennon Stuff. It felt a very little consequence. The main thrust of the show But man I enjoyed talking about with both the Utah. Sorry was so low energy. Now it's okay. What Riley showed up in all her musical theater kid. Glory early are I'm sure she has a take on which cast recording of rant and better than is. Your name is spelled R. Y. R. E. I R. E. I L. Y. L. L. Y. spelling of Riley. That starts are Y. Okay I've seen it every which way. Oh my God because mine. It's the Irish last name is O. Riley. So that's where my first name is from and I have never like it is few and far between that. It's that people spell it up just kind of. It's I've given wrong. Baba why are you laughing at me? Yeah written and directed by Daniel Palladino and we say farewell to the Daniel Palladino episodes in the season. Finale is written by his. He knows how to do it Riley.

Francisco Forty niners tight end George kitto coming up Emmy Award winning actor Tony Shillue and now. Rich is. Our number three of our first show ever on peacock our first quad cast ever. Yeah. You know what? There's not enough methods of distribution. Appropriate for the rich Eisen show, I will say I. Mean We're you know the let's put it this way. There's enough of us to go round. Satellite Radio Terrestrial Radio were also on NBC n every Single Day. From twelve to three eastern for at least the next six weeks, and then we're going to be eventually a peacock only program. But today we add peacock streaming to our live distribution. List and we're so thrilled to be part of an amazing streaming service. I would say where you can find us on Picot but people are watching a pig say we got this already but for those who don't or getting peacock or have it Neymar. Wondering how to find us where right there on the channels list you just find the NBC sports on. Peacock. Channels list. and Boom there we are after Dan Patrick every day preceding Dan. Why is Mike Florio show? This is exciting because not only is there a live programming, but there's also movies and television shows within it. And we had a great show Bill Belichick was first up she kilo Neil and George kibble joined us in our number two and David Shaw Stanford. We had a very significant conversation with the football coach of Stanford football about covid nineteen and what's going on in the world there, and he started and ended his the interview wanting to talk about our next guest because he's such a big fan of his as we all are as I am. he is the one of the Emmy Award winning stars of one of my favorite programs available on Amazon prime. It's called the Marvelous Mrs Mazel Marvelous in every way shape and form from the writing to the directing to the acting Tony Shillue here on the rich Eisen show how are you Tony? Good. Good. Thanks for having I'm pleased thrilled to have you we. We met years ago when you came on NFL network to pick games when I was the host of NFL total access. God yeah that's that's right and. How did I do with that? By the call? You know what I don't recall but let's just say you went ten and what the hell. GonNa check that. Exactly. There's no fact checking here. On. The Rich Eisen show. Live with I live with that I can live with that number, but it was it was great and obviously the first thing we pointed out then in our conversation that will bring your is your native of Green Bay Wisconsin set correct es indeed born born and raised until I was about nineteen. But I, still go back because I have a lot of family and friends there and And I have some property up in door county and so I have season tickets to Lambeau of course and I'm I'm dyed-in-the-wool. Packers. So what's your first memory of Lambeau towing? What's your first one? Oh Man you know I my dad had season tickets We didn't go get to go to all the Games but. You know we did get to go to a few. You know the thing I. Remember most when I was a kid I don't know if it's still still have this but they used to have a contest in the summer and fall called punt passing kick sure or is that still around I? Mean it was it was big back now. Oh yes. They're stars as long as there's punting passing and kicking Tony they will have that competition. That's like. That was a big deal we used to do you practice and practice, and then you'd have they'd have this competition and I think eventuate started doing it on the field at Lambeau In in you know I just I just have this memory of going to these really really brutally cold games and loving every minute of it and I still I still love going to the. To the cold games, it's one of the you know it's it's one of those things where you know you always wish that Greenbelt get into the play offs and they often do. But one of the drivers for me is that I get to go and sit in a really bullets tree goal. I have been there and I have done that there Tony and you know obviously, there are so many special sporting venues in in our country and and people have every right to talk about what's special about there's and what's favorite for there's but there really is only one lambeau and the fact that you're just driving on a on a, you know a street and there's a convenient there's a convenience store. There's. A gas station and there's the home of the Green Bay packers. I mean little rind that's literally the way it goes and it really is special like that. Especially since you know we know tailgating Za right in in the state of Wisconsin but my buddy Steve Mariucci why do gains with a former forty niners coach and also farms former quarterbacks coach tells a story of somebody who has a house at Green. Writer bound Lambofield he leases it out to college students or college age kids throughout the year, and then when it was it was. And then when it's time for a home game, he comes and lives in the house and makes the tenants serve the tailgate. Material. To him and his friends like that literally happens or genius in Lambo flat out of that. Well it's food for thought, but I mean that I mentioned that just because it is just such a unique setting you know in Green. That and the neighborhoods right around. Right around the stadium. There and one of my sisters lives not far from the stadium. So we kind of use her place A. If we're walking to or being dropped off at the stadium. But what's great is that people you know rent out their their their lawns for parking. That's right So you don't have the parkway to the same. You can park two blocks, three blocks, five blocks away for whatever ten bucks, fifteen bucks and and then just walk in, and so it's kind of. You know the sea of green and gold. or or people in Orange hunting gear walking. Through these. And right across the street to the to the stadium. It's fantastic. So who is your guy growing up? Is it Bart? Starr's out was? Is it I, Love Star I even have a star T shirt is up a friend gave me as a as a gift recently but for me. It was Jim Taylor. You know I, he was a fullback and. He was the you know he was the guy just grinding it out. You know. Yard by yard you know that. He he was. He was that guy wasn't was. Flash wasn't like warning who was kind of like this look like sorta matinee. Idol Guy. But but he was kind of the workforce who got it done and. He was my era. Yeah, and now you got Aaron Rodgers You know aged thirty six and just a major huge chip on his shoulder coming into this upcoming season, Tony. And you know I it's just exciting. I he's one of my favorites to watch I. Wonder What your subject what your thoughts on the subject of Aaron Rodgers is future or anything going on with Green Bay telling I I've I've loved him from the from the first moment you know I mean, there were a lot of people that were you know crying in their beer when when far laugh tonight I. Really, did wonders for the for the team for the town. But but you know there was that moment where it was really time it was his time to move on. And And so everybody was kind of like, Oh my God before we they really knew what Rogers you know had under the hood and But I was I was a fan from the get go and He's own. Kids. You know just kind of. Never. He never ceases to amaze. I really. Feel like I really feel like. You know he's got some really good years coming. And and somehow he always manages to overcome whatever injury whatever criticism whatever's going on you know with the overall team or with the overall league. He just Kinda keeps. Rising above it and. And I just have a lot of a lot of confidence in the Guy Tony Shalhoub here on the rich Eisen show and Tony I obviously it without saying you've been in some great TV and certainly movies in your career You know Monaco monk, which monk which is available on on peacock here with all eight seasons and I do believe that's what you were on to promote an NFL network back in the day and now marvelous ask Mrs Mazel three seasons. So far the is research shows received fifty four nominations in sixteen wins. You are nominated again in the category in which you want your outstanding in this as is the rest of the cast and crew. What did it? What was it like when you receive the first script? Did you see it sense? It that this was something potentially that Special Tony Well, you know I really did love that pilot script and that's all we got to go on because we had to do the pilot wasn't one of those situations where you know it was. Picked up for a whole season which I believe. Netflix often does PA- for Amazon. You had to do a pilot and you know say it's just sort of trotted out there and then wait and get the decision to be made. Picked picked up the pilot script. Really. Really struck me the my character of aid of the father. A belief character has you know there wasn't there wasn't a lot of aid in the pilot or you know few kind of Nice scenes but it was There wasn't is a little difficult to kind of get a beat on where where this was going to go and how it was going to talk overall story. But I loved the writing so much and I I. was been a rate in a mire of amy, Sherman Palladino and Garage Dan Palladino, the writers, creators and I had a conversation with them you know before signing on. To just to get an idea of. You know what was in store for this character and they assured me that it was going to be really well rounded. Like all the characters were. And that we we're going to service these care, all of these characters well in that You know it was it was they had big plans. They weren't GonNa they weren't GonNa, show all their cards but they. They assured me that it was It was going to be significant and Turned out to be more than I even expected. And it's it's just wonderful. Just a a terrific. You know representation of the time there's you know a character of Lenny Bruce. So there's some real life names being thrown in there and you kind of wonder what could be real and what's not and then just again. A Jewish kid from New York City. So a lot of your. Rings true to me. I'm wondering again, you know actually the question, the David Shaw, the coach of Stanford is a big Fan of yours. Wanted me to ask you. Yes, indeed. He just because he loves monk and he loves Mrs Mazel He wants to know if there's any. You'd think he'd let me try out for the team. Just like you know what Tony I think-i would be academically eligible it sounds like. You are. attacked. Good. I appreciate you calling in but I don't want to you know dashing hopes or dreams. Relate. He wants to know is there a through line between those characters? Any similarity of of Abe? Weisman monk. At all what do you think through line? I don't know I, don't really see them as as kind of. Being parallel okay. Characters, I approach them differently possibly the creators the writers see some parallels and they try to exploit that but. I try to. I try to keep my. You know when I'm when I'm when I'm working on a when I'm when I'm? Doing those scenes I'm I- monk is pretty far away from my my thought to mean, okay and you have to remember when we finish among people still watch monk I I suppose reruns and fourth. But you know we. We wrap that show up eleven years ago so. Yeah, it's it's been a long time. So is there is there either one that's closest to you? Is there a little piece you which one? Which one are you more like? Real World Tony You Know I. Think you know. As a was A. Math Professor at Columbia does that that right there? That's that puts. An enormous. Amount. Math was not my stroke. But But I guess I guess I there is a lot of because I'm the father of two daughters around the age of they don't know. Mazel you know. There is something there to for me to draw from but I guess I guess you could say you know monk. Among. I became monk and Mike became me I think you could. Safely. And again the the way that you play the father just to bring up I don't WanNA spoil too much if there's not any anybody who has yet to to to start down this path and if they haven't I'm jealous that everything's going to be new to them but the moment where your character Abe does go to see. midge performed. Well. He's out of places not expecting to see her but you Karagwe blocks out on stage right to that that you go and you see her for the first time and she sees you and you know neither of you expected it. Is Really I. I kinda got emotional about it. You know. because. You. Know father normally would be proud of anything daughter does and vice in a daughter wants to make you know her dad. Happy with what she does and you know we're all hoping that that all does wind up in that spot eventually. But for that to happen that way, it was really moving in you. You've played it. So perfectly, it was so great. I just wanted to thank you. You know I that that's really kind of tribute to help brilliantly Rachel, Brosnahan who plays Mitch so How how? To handle the playing of seeing it, I told this to her to after that day of filming. I think you know acting students for years to come will study that per-performance in that scene because it's so complicated. It's so sort of tricky and complex she's playing. Clean three or four five different things at once. And and I just it was it was fascinating to be to be with her first of all. You know as character discovering this whole thing he had no idea about. His daughter was doing. But just for one actor watching another actor. boy that was I didn't I didn't really have to do much 'cause it was it was mesmerizing and. Can Riveting. In a way that he, you know you don't often experience. Well Tony it's great I I truly love the show. And I, you know I'm a huge fan of it and yours and as the packer fans you know it's difficult to defend the title of Good Luck with that with with. With. The outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series Emmy deserved last years and I wish you nothing but more success in and congrats on being part of something special like this show. Well, much appreciate. You Bet let's let's do this more often. Let's let's check lease this John Deere see at Lambeau snacks. You got it. We'll do that. Thanks for the call you got Tony Shalhoub. The Emmy Award winning actor Amazon Prime. Video is the Marvelous Mrs Mazel and because we're beginning to butter are bread. Here on peacock and we know how to butter bread and we know how to be part of a team. You can watch all eight seasons of monk. Right here on peacock. While done. There it is. It is the proof in the pudding there. Oh, there it is. It's that's the page. That's what it will look like when you go to the monk page on on peacock. Great Show great show. That is what that is. What he came on to promote games pick the games he did he came in. I was in grade came and I'm like we wanted to make sure everything was clean and in the right plan. Lights. This is the actor who plays we wanted to make sure that everything was. Okay. And then he came here when you start talking about the packers days of you're rolling around. This is great.

Four guests in a row guest Palooza here on our first peacock show that was a lot of fun. Now as a lot of fun, now, there's a little bit of breathing room to explore the studio space figuratively here on Peacock Hey. In a bubble since Marley. And and I'll just can I spike the football a little bit here in just a little bit here if you don't mind. You know when we came back from the combine, we kept the show live on youtube and we were on terrestrial radio on Fox sports radio before we went our separate ways indeed. and. Then when we were off that. We got serious. They were on board with us and we're on our youtube stream and we stuck around. And we went on a hiatus Mike bought a bigger boat and he came back and now here we are on four different platforms. On August twenty, four, th. That's something I definitely would have signed for on December twenty third when we found that news and I was trying on your European vacation to tell you what was going Gosh I'm on a train from London to Brussels and I'm like brush off of the I'm trying to get a Mike what. Fresh. Off of you dragging your. Pregnant, significant, other all the way to Tottenham. Right, which showed up late because we mississippi train from. Paris like crazy. Schlepping a pregnant woman to Tottenham is. Guy Rich SCHLEPPING. Applicable. Pretty. Good. To already, audience NBC San, we just came up with the worst Guy Ritchie movie ever. That's GONNA fit. And Chris Brockman. We were just recalling the time that he took Sarah Yano who is very pregnant at the time airy cage Brockman. Very pregnant. and. You went to Tottenham. League match you were in Paris and was like Oh. That'd be cool. If we went to London for the day to go to A. Game I, told you having called a NFL game in that you're more marketable stadium by the way. Truly. One of the finest facilities I have ever set foot in for a sporting event is Tottenham stadium. I told you though it's not easy to get to that even by taking the train or the tube. then. It's a long walk and I'm like and she is very pregnant. So we just said schlepping a pregnant woman Tottenham is the worst guy. Ritchie. Moving history of guy he's terrible. I mean Vinnie Jones even refused to appear in it. That's how bad rob remained there for extra time. We got there admitted seventy six. Exactly got there for the last fifteen. Terrible. Stadiums basically said I'm busy. Guy Ritchie for that one right of doing another fast and furious exactly you. Got More than. SCHLEPPING pregnant woman to Tottenham is definitely not paying a lot of money. Grow Song Title Yeah ADS Okay. So what are we learned today? So far because we just went from one interview, the other another here's what we learned so far we learned that bill belichick would. Want the NFL to review pass interference. In the it to be more aligned with college and more so more. So any specific rule, he would just like some more uniformity between college right? Well, I asked him in the interview in our one. He was our first guest today. What rule would he change? If you could wave the bell check? We'll be the rule that he could change and you know he is an Emmy Award winning broadcaster award nominated broadcaster having lost Charles Barkley I mean category. So you could tell you knows how to talk and he said initially, Hey, they do a great job. Great job. As he was probably searching for something. Potentially you'd want to change, and then he finally settled on the pass interference rule. I think. He wants them to take a look at it. Flip in a field, fifty yards because of a of a call that is. Objective. Is. Something I think he would like to remove, and then he said he wants more uniformity between college and pro and I said to him well, that would mean that. You'd still want to feed down for catch I thought he would basically say, yeah, that I definitely want but he said, no, he just wants it uniform from college to the pros. That was terrific. We then. Drops out of him right? Mike Del. Tufo, you got the your That's a good one. Did also learn that he I don't even know what an audio drop is. That's what job. Audio drop let's say Mike do your job. And he said that so quickly that to edit it and you did a good job, actually Mike give my h hawks, hoskins did it. Credit Mike, There's not in his name. So he did it on the. That's a drop right there. They're very good. David Shaw joined the program and Stanford head coach it sounds like to me. Does not think. He thinks the next snap of Stanford Football. Will be next. Fall. He did say that it's possible to do a season in January he doesn't want to be as long as college football season he thinks it would have to be. Start by Jan. One out by early. March so kids. Who Do return in the fall that it's not ridiculous to play two seasons in the same calendar year he said Denise decades upon decades of information on which to base that that would be a terrible joyce on behalf of player safety for the kids, which is why they canceled the fall season or postponed it to the the winter. Then also mentioned how kids are GonNa. Have to get ready for draft. Again I think if The big ten does play in January. Justin, feels played his played. His last snap is an Ohio State Buckeye next snap you see from Justin field in the pro season of twenty, twenty, one four. So lucky. It sounded to me again, and Shaw is on the advisory board with the NCW that that was including our guest that we had one week ago today on NBC. Dr Brian Hainline the chief medical. Officer of the NC Double A. When asked asked. David Shaw if PAC twelve made the right decision, he said unequivocally. It wasn't well, we've got the protocols handled here at Stanford. Well, we've got the testing here. It's handled here at Stanford. Well, you know it was tough to tell parents what they would tell. There was none of that that we're hearing from big ten coaches none of it. And so if you ask David Shaw based on the way, things are going right now the narrow path to playing football that the chief medical officer of the NC Double A. C. said needs to happen now for fall sports and if nothing changes by the winter. Sounds like to me that if David Shaw had to guess. Next September Labor Day weekend. For Stanford Football. And Dim. It sound like that the sec and everyone else is going to eventually come to the same realization that they had. And that if they go about playing. The run into the same issues that PAC. Twelve brought up like so. have to play a five game season six game season as opposed to ten for the others. How are you going to do it? And if it's a team and if a team plays five games or six games. What does that mean for eligibility? And just make this point about. Okay if some playing others don't. What does that mean? Here's the top ten list that came out during the conversation with David. Three asterisks, their own State Penn State, and Oregon. The asterisk the rare asterisk indicates team canceled their games for the fall season. So you know what forget about there being an asterisk on the the eventual national champion by the way, there was a great. Video that I sent around clanging around. Should I shouldn't say that when I don't give proper credit, I don't know off the top of my head who did it? About a guy play, you know packing his car up and he's wearing an SEC t shirt. And then a young lady who represents the big ten. Gets into an argument with him about I can't talk to you and you're like this. Then a young lady represents the ACC in another guy represents the big twelve and they're basically getting ready to hop in a car together as the big ten storms off. A C. wanted. The Best Line of the whole thing was when they asked the big twelve of the SEC guy in the ACC young lady sitting in the front seat turnaround the big ten big twelve and say, are you with us in his responses I got asked Texas. But outside of that. Man that made me laugh in check the. Texas from chance and sports. Thank you boy Oh my God check out area. And? Conspicuously absent was the PAC twelve from that entire video. But the the point is this I mean some and summer out, and then you know you're gonNA have. On a season about winning national championship but. If. You know you're not gonNA play in the pros after I play. That would be my. If my sluggish, YOU'RE GONNA. If you know your going. Yeah. I if. You're a guy who knows that you know you're going to go into an in a in a in a in into business or find you know be a doctor or something like that well, if you're a doctor, you might you know Better the risks of Myocarditis, which is something that again, the heart ailments exact apparently is brought on by the effects of covid nineteen or some and along we don't you just don't know and that's why David said that we just decided. We don't know enough yet. We're not playing and other conferences are deciding. Let's see and some other conferences may decide that the let's see means. Let's see what it's like playing and deal with it then. But that's just wild to see. An and then buy at what point if there are games do you drop the astros teams off later after one game? got. To. But preseason includes three teams that are not playing games this year. Two. Thousand Twenty. George Kettle is a fun chat Tony Shalhoub Fun chat about the Green Bay packers moments ago shack came on and for our poll question. Chris Brockman on packet and. Shackled what is dumb on the scale we're talking about all these great performances were seen in the NBA playoffs right now which under twenty five would you start your team with if you could do so jaanus. Luca Donovan Mitchell Jason Tatum Kinda unchanged actually Luca lead sixty two percent jaanus thirty percent bucks up three right now it's second quarter. Jason Tatum five percent Donovan Mitchell three percent. I turned richeisenshow Social Media Grand Maistre TJ Jefferson. Chris Brockman of having Boston buys for putting tatum in there even though he's a very dynamic player on the twenty five or is there another? Or is fine for saying that. Is there another under twenty five guy? That you would think of that should be there I mean I don't think he's showing by Jason. Tatum is pretty good and I I don't think anyone else up for debate.

Literally, looked like a a ventriloquist. Shacks kid in that picture he puts you in his pocket. You're not in this picture I'm at this. On the rich Eisen show instagram page, I posted a picture all you guys. Okay Eight, four, four, two, zero, four, rich number to dial. My Buddy Mike Silver's work in IT FROM The NFL Media Group, my colleague, my compadres, Mike Silver. Looks like they're a little bit of loose lips coming out of the it's no longer totally in house is the reason why the Ravens decided to. finally cut ties with Earl Thomas Christopher what is Mike? Silver says, it seems like this is a long time coming for Earl Thomas issues with him date back to last year late missed meetings they warned him, they find him. At some point, it is going to be a conduct detrimental situations where they said they cut him. So Earl Thomas was complaining. This is Mike Silver that it needed more time between practices and meetings because he needed to get his car washed. What several times on this was a couple of days before earl reportedly blue a red zome assignment in practice which caused Chuck Kark to throw his helmet and earl. Thomas responded with Yo man. It's cool Chuck Clark said no, it's not cool. You need to go to meetings and walk through and maybe you'll get it and then that's when the fight went down. That's when earl decided to throw hands and that was the end of it was that. So are you telling me that a guy with Hall of fame? Credentials. Earl Thomas. Told John, Harbaugh, or whomever on the Raven Staff. I need more time between practice in meetings because I gotta get my car washed like. That utter by. By the way, Mike's Information. Not what I'm calling into question right? What I was saying has lost his than signed well. We don't need again to be your story that happened over the over the off season I know that I mean. That's Totally outrageous. Yeah. That seems insane. Yeah. Now, we'll hear what earls you know over the weekend posted the I think this was the final Straw to. If harbaugh or whomever was going back and forth he posted the practice video which. Clark through his helmet, he posted that video. So he put how to get his hands on that I don't I don't. I don't know maybe they send video I'm sure they send video of practices to all team members for them to look at it. All twenty two that makes sense. Hey here's today's practice spend your time looking at it while you're in Kuantan anything crazy down. Yeah and so. Could you imagine that's not one thing. I. WAS GONNA use my time bill belichick like, hey bill how would you react the player? Instagram out practice all twenty two. How would you handle that to try and defend himself about what caused an argument? And a fight during practice how would you handle all twenty two being instagram doubt. That got deleted. Man. And when I read. Get I got tons of emails I. Mean My wife Suzy's cannot believe the number of emails that I have on read on my phone same way. But I, mean the the number I, mean the. I'll take you down I. Think. I. Mean I'm over twenty thousand, oh. No you've got me. Dude what wasted? So my wasting my time sending you an email I've got about six thousand right now. Because the number of emails I'm. The number eight while the number of emails I'm getting right now for instance, I just got an email because the NFL media group. News desk is amazing. So I've got right here as a matter of fact, Chuck Clark on his fight with Earl Thomas quote right now as a team and an organization where moving forward we're putting that situation in the review, which is a great response. Chuck Clark, I'm done addressing that honestly in the organization as well. We're just moving forward at this point quote I know what I am. I know what people that care about me think at the end of the day I'm moving moving forward in a positive mindset now. And so I'm seeing this. I saw over the weekend that with Gerald McCoy's awful injury the pay the cowboy saved three some odd million bucks on the cap and they they redid who tyron Smith they redid terrorists. So they they got. Enough cap space of ten million bucks. Who They give money to the guy who's from? Ut. knocked on the door and chase down you know Jason Garrett say come. Get me. And the cowboys have come out and said, they're not interested. They're fine. Do you think they're hearing. They did their homework in the same way that Mike Silvers talking about it. I mean I'd love to hear from Earl who's been on the show couple times. I'll reach out to. Thank you should eight, four, four, zero, four rich number to dial jeff in Detroit always brings it on this show and we're throw to have him here Jeff you've been there since the beginning and now you're streaming on peacock how're you doing?

I haven't seen him forever Russell world ever like I literally. I haven't seen you in one year. Three hundred sixty five days. I know well it hasn't been that long has no but it did feel like a very very long time since I saw you us. No it's been like over a week. That's a long time but I know I. Yeah it is and I think because I was seventeen hours ahead and Japan. It really felt distant. I felt I felt distant. I really did 'cause especially sometimes when I would like need you I knew you were. We're like all the different time schedules I was like. I really have to figure this out of my own. I'm proud of you. I feel like you're a very busy though. There's a lot going on instagram stories. Stories and there was so much going on in the last two weeks. I don't even know like I don't even think I could recap at all because there's so much that's happened happened. Will you almost hit a home run softball game yesterday so that time like we should talk about. It's called an in house. Home runs not inside the park. Mark home is called the nightside the tomato I kept. You kept saying in house and I'm like who told her it was held in how I'm sure they probably did and I'm sure I said that the park home run. Yeah but it was really like Kinda crazy doing okay so we did this softball game with the Jonas brothers so it was like kiss because FM and the Jonas brothers versus this high school that one like their school voted them this contest. That was having to play to play so we went to their school cool and I only I only went up to bat because so joe brought Sophie so so if he was there and she was pleased bat like that would just make my day. I was like Whoa sure why not embarrass myself. I'll probably strike out whatever people were striking out like. It wasn't a big deal plate and I hit this ball and it literally just like flies so high in the sky. I was like staring at him and I was like. I guess I just runs lady drove it into the left-field start running and then I get this athletic like adrenaline in me. And I'm like I'm just GonNa go all the way so I'm like running around these bases and everybody's like Tanya Staw Stop at the time. She got the third they had the ball. They're standing. I know I was watching him like Tanya just no one told her to start told me stop and I just kept on going. I'm going to get a home run. I've never I'm the least athletic person that you could ever meet on the planet so this is truly like a magical experience agreeance Tennessee. You're not treated it like a ten. That's kind of how I I held the bat like attached great. Hey I I know like all like Joe came. He was like I'm not gonNA is really impressive and so if you got video of it I was like this. Is the best ever imagine if you had just stopped on third. It would've been like a solid I know wouldn't have been almost homerun. You know what I mean okay. Well how's home. Run the right which is not as impressive as almost homerun. Ripples are actually more rare than home runs in baseball. And you hit. You're a lefty and you hit it to left field which is also like apple. uh-huh power can you believe yeah was pure athleticism like like you've been trained. I'm actually so mad because I feel like if I would have booked after I hit it and I ran a little faster. I think I could have done it a little more swinging of the Arnold Little Lauryn Alex. Yeah well it was a thrill to WanNa stories and I'm on an athletic high like I really feel like my pup open my chest a little bit hoops later. Maybe got any but what I really wanted to actually talk about today was Vagina Shaving I uh-huh yeah it'd be the greatest history broadcast Zagreb. 'cause I don't want to forget because last time I forgot and so I haven't shaved my vagina. Am I WANNA say this since in two thousand twelve or thirteen. Maybe I've been waxing for as long as I can remember and I'm doing laser hair removal now and to do that. You have to shave it. I seems like it's switched over to laser. Yeah I'm sorry. I did that my first session. So we'll talk about that after the day. Okay do my second one in two weeks so you can have prepared me for that but so I get a shower and I like how do women that do this. I need to everybody. That's listening. That shaves her own. The Jonah like props to you. It was so hard I had to get a mirror to put underneath me to like. Get back there like how. How do you shave back there? I truly in a whole nother in off people that shave themselves. I as a Wasser applaud you and so I texted back. How you been doing this for so many years? And how often do you do it. I just I feel first of all I do it like every couple of days as but I also am not like detail like I'm not going to the places where you needed to Mir for every single time but you have to do that for laser you have to get like every every every hair. Yeah Particle particles and not the person but yeah. That's a more thorough throw. How often do you do a thorough job like like I say once a week a thorough? Do you need a mere no. I just kinda guess. I'm probably missing spots. I wasn't I was like I. I really applaud you because I've done it myself and since I can remember now I'm realizing why I don't do it myself I think i. That's how I feel about you relaxing though I got on. I'm in awe of that you are known to the pain. Look at this or innocent olive each. Okay tell me about the laser. Though that was the easiest thing I could possibly do blinked and it was over. Okay I don't trust you because you all Tau Waxing was I know it was not not painful electric. Feel it a little bit but I'm telling you it's the fastest thing I have ever experienced such a lie. Everything every single other person is told me. It's like a rubber band pop. Really come with me Lee. Come with me my next appointment. My actually like book an appointment and get it done. I want to get it done. I'm tired of shaving but I don't WanNa wax.

I don't WanNa like go home and hang out at my apartment until dinner like being drunk at home like I'll probably pass out. You know what I mean like. There's a lot of probability me not not getting dinner and so like I'll just like stay and everybody like hung out got another drink with Tori and I was like I stopped drinking because I like saw myself starting to like sway can't like start pounding waters like just like pounding waters. Don't think that worked at all and then I had to mortaring dinners. I was like oh you are on a good one. I was on a good one like Sunday came and I literally was like. I don't think I can move off my good. I think it off until two thirty PM. That's good for you. You need that you had a lot of going on. I loved up to the stories that Sierra of you it was really funny because we were just like literally honed in together like in every corner corner is actually really Buddy Ryan walked up to me. He was like I was standing with Sierra's husband and she's like is it he goes. Is this the dude before. Ah but in all fairness he was kinda turned to the side so he could eat us all male figure next to me not necessarily a face so so did the guy that your dating know that after the party did you say oh. Yeah I was going to bring you but how much of the party was discussed with this. Yeah A lot and you know it's funny though when I at the end of the party like there's a part of me that's was happy to be there alone because it's such a nice time to like you bond with like our co workers and their significant others and there was a lot of people though that I hadn't met before and like there's something really just kind of special and fun about that. It might be like this new guy. I'm still getting to know him so he's not like it's not like my co workers are meeting like my husband or like I. I don't know so there's after I left. I kind of was kind of happy that I was there alone. You know that makes sense. Yeah is said guys still the leader in Qarase. He's still the leader in the car. Qarase but can I tell you something what. There's this song uncomedic new album called Shit of set it and and I kind of feel like I'm living those lyrics right. Let me about those lyrics so there are a few men from my past. That have been coming in strong coming back around in the in the picture and it's so funny because it's like that saying I guess I'm not when it rains. It pours because I hate that because it's like it's pouring but you know what I mean. It's like you're happy with something Kinda going on and then these other people come back that you used to have the feeling ealier like you said you have this connection to and then kind of makes you second. Guess everything you're like most you are you second guessing with any of them. There's one that I'm like Whoa. Whoa no yeah I mean you put that one out there? I was drunk. That was the one that really works the chorus. So you want me now. Let's funny because he didn't give a back then coming back around so sorry it. There's no room in my bed and I'm all good now. Someone else is getting all of me. Oh so desperately you should have said it I want you you have a segment where you read like a really good. It's open because I was listening to the album. I've never felt felt Marsin by a song in this moment of life. But yeah it's really weird plenty of guys coming around and they should have said it then if they would've been who knows what might have happened too. Late is on these guys because I feel like he's really been coming hot on your uh-huh telling you it's the weirdest thing like I'm like. Have you ever talked. Like had any like connection with him. Neil what's funny. I think I kissed him on New Year's on New Year's maybe like how do you not know if I'm pretty sure I did because I was in New York. It was like I was there for the ball drop and I was at like some club and I think he performed and I'm I'm like ninety percent. Sure him and we all were kind of going around like kissing seeing each other and kissing orgy. Yeah we're all outside on this rooftop so there was like maybe ten of us and we were all just kind of going around like aw. I'm pretty sure he was one of them. So he's coming back around should've said it he was not onto the top of my mind for this. But yeah the guy you're thinking about but there's a bunch of others are just like you should have said it. Yeah it's very strange all right. Let's take a break okay. I have a game. We can play if you want to. Yeah Yeah I love Games. What kind of game?

I'm going to say yes I'M GONNA say. No even though my gut says to say yes I'M GONNA go with no so yes but it's more morbid embellishment than alive where it's either a liar. It's not a lot an ally. Okay why not the truth. I definitely have for sure was rooting for your well. One was more of an embellishment one was was was the say when it lifted education. The University of Wisconsin which is true but they didn't graduate from there. But there's an implication that you did not resume so that's woven embellishment but also when I first I moved here with trying to get acting work. I literally made up movies. That didn't exist so I actually applied for this job back the day I literally took what it was like like on the website. What it said that the job required and I put all those things like in my resume and then when I got the job I literally like this what it was like Red Carpet reporting exporting audio from Blah Blah Blah? You know just like I'm GONNA learn do it back. We'll all of that stuff teachable. It's not that big of a arrest. You could almost learn it you know. Go into some store or something Atlanta before you got the job. Can you make sure to bleep mine curse word. I always do this necessary. I'm one of the main parts of my job in this. Yeah especially over the other ones they get a little Raunchy thoroughly you know. Throw them around sailor anyway. So that game was decorate but it was. Okay enjoyed it. You're still listening. WE HAVE SOMEBODY WE'RE GONNA call on surprise. I can give you more the details on that in a second but I don't WanNa give too much away. 'cause it's Kinda funny. There was something else I wanted to talk about to with you with me There's something in the pop. Culture Zeitgeist thing has got to be weakened had she's GonNa be starting to watch some of the net flicks Oscar. I'm like getting into the Oscar. Golden Globes possibility. Yeah I'm like getting on all that. So what's what are your tops for the weekend. I'm going to watch marriage Marriage story this weekend and Irishman Irishman is three and a half hours. I've been watching it a little. It's like you know what they say if you have to eat elephant one bite at a time. And that's what I've been doing. I've been watching like twenty minutes at a time and trying to get through the argument for weeks now and it is good. I do enjoy it. I don't know the Tanya will like I like like those kind of mafia movies. I'm not sure that's tiny thing like goodfellas good movies. But I don't know the hard it is that I'm Gonna I'm GonNa put the Marvelous Mrs Maes on the back burner that I can like start watching. These movies. Story is a brief two hours and seventeen minutes breeze. Yeah so it's a movie and not a show. Now kind of great that these oscar-nominated movies are on. Potentially Oscar nominated movies on Netflix. It's a real time saver. Yeah yeah is that what you wanted to talk to Becca about. No I wasn't it was it. It's GonNa drive me nuts. What are we take a break and this happens in like A? We don't see each other and then be i. Don't write things down and my brain. Just like a BLOB. All right pop culture. Is it a music thing. Camille album music. You're into the Jonas brothers. TV show that you're into maizels back. A lot of a bit shows net flakes Disney plus. Is it a movie thing. We just talked about movies didn't seem to ring any bells. I don't even know I don't know if any bells can be wrong in my head right now. Is it a book. You're reading something motivational something. You really enjoyed and really got you all dialed in house. Your workbook going guys. I'm going to be a new woman in two thousand twenty. We know it's really just say goodbye in the next week or so by say good bye to her. Because I'm coming in hot and twenty twenty. I almost feel like you should. She did this workbook. Like I know. You don't WanNa call in the one and you don't like believe and all that stuff but like I do not believe it. I just I'm telling you I feel like I'm in therapy. Syrupy without having to go like I can do therapy essentially just doing in the comfort of my own home. I'm like knee deep into a journal. I just worked on dating patterns and unrelated back to my parents. Oh it was mindblowing. mindblowing mind blowing down to do that. I I saw an interesting post on the facebook group and it was You know because we talk about our faith a lot on the podcasts and onset is there anyone else who's not religious in this group group. Do you sometimes feel left out or like you're not part and I thought it was a very fascinating post because you you know we talk about it because it's part of our lives a very important part of our lives but I thought it's so interesting to think of how much we talk about it and people are just like skip right over it because it's a different belief and I was thinking how crazy it is in in like a very eye opening way that we're we're also different and we all have such a different story and we're just going to say like I see you and I like I hear what you're saying because there's a lot of times when and people are talking about something that maybe is not a part of my life or it isn't important in my life and I just kind of blow over it so I never obviously obviously what I know that we talk about it because it's our stance in our foundation but I also I hear and see the people who don't you know believe the same things or whatever. Yeah Yeah what still trying to bear. What the Hell I want to talk to you about but I thought it was? I mean it was it is fascinating and I think. Actually what's I've been getting a lot a lot more a lot more a lot more messages messages lately about people just kind of reaching out and being like thank you so much for like saying some of the things that you do just just because I feel like we can be emotional just in general just as human beings like a lot of people some people very much on some people not so emotional. This girl wrote that means. She's like I ended things with a guy that I dated for three weeks cried for three days. And she's like I didn't feel like a embarrassed and ashamed that I did that. But she's like you know when you open up about crying over someone that you dated for like a month and a half it makes me feel better and I was like you know what that makes me so happy because like who cares. It's at least you're feeling something you know what I mean. Like glacier feeling great things about you as you're very open about every aspect of your life that some people would be embarrassed by. It's still slow clap really. I want to be brave like you and twentieth twenty but yeah I've just been feeling very Connected connected to like our listeners lately. I think maybe it was something in the facebook group that that struck me. But like I don't know there's been very connected And like very emotional like lovey community like way like I'm really excited about the live shows. I feel like it's going to be something really special. It's going to be the facebook group. Come to life. Yeah yeah like it's weird because even my neighbor that I met like I whenever I meet anybody that is like a scrubber scrubber like I feel wildly connected to them in a weird way I mean. Yeah because it's a it is like a unique community that we've built in. It's it's it's something that's very special and it's different so I think that's very normal that I get i. I pretty much if I get on the facebook group and I you know Scroll Scroll for Awhile and read the Post. I cry almost every single time. I know like there was the one about the girl who said her friends and say she looked beautiful everybody started like like chiming in. How beautiful? Oh she looked so nice. Does that unique situation. I think I just love that I what I what I was trying to say with that post. No matter what background you come from or what you believe in what your life is like. There's someone in the group who is is able to say like Oh yeah me too. And they can relate embalmed over something and I think that's what makes it so special is that there's someone for everyone in the group And there's people who are looking for their their Tanya or their BECCA and they are able to find that person in the group in have the connection because of the podcasts cast which is so cool. So there's a lot of comments on that poster. You mentioned it is very interesting. I don't feel like you guys are heavy handed with over the top with it. I feel like kind of comes and goes just got part of the tapestry of the show right and that's the general consensus is that it's not too much. No no no no I never want to apologize for talking about what's important to me and expect and I think the thing that you have to also a lot of times people are asking us our opinions or like how would you handle this or what would you do. I think a lot of times. We lean on our faith like I lean on my faith for so many different aspects of my life whether it's dating relationships work stuff you know like I always lean that way so I I think it just comes natural for us to talk about it right. Yeah I wasn't saying like Oh we talk about it too much. I was just saying it was fascinating. It was interesting because I never thought of that perspective of someone who's like oh I don't have faith is not like the foundation. That's important to me or what I lean on but I think you can take when we talk about our faith. Put that into whatever your foundation is and just replace it and base it off of that but yeah I mean the responses. Were very much like some of them. Were like Oh yes same. And they talked about their background around with growing up in the church or like how they found God later in life whatever it is but I just love that the group is like such a community for everyone it really is just feeling very like warm fuzzy. Might be the time of year not too sure good opportunity to call someone. That's lost to that coming up next is it. Do we know you know what I loved about periods.

So we'll have a little a little little morning party for Twenty Nineteen and then bringing the twenty twenty vision. I love it. This is really good. I just I remembered my dream last night. Mark and I were doing the podcast or some reason. It was just us what we're doing an Mr one and so we were really having to talk like very saw chewing things. We were like opening things like. Oh typing UNWRAP podcast. Yeah you made me so uncomfortable that so yes you should bordia media podcast where we just talk. I don't think I can do it. Actually I don't think having been the bottle bad like four hours. Something people you call to like talk like Gypsy whereas Blanchard. Hey bottle GONNA start waxing. I don't think they're for PODCASTS. Like what you give time to during the break. Oh her her eyebrow look great. Thank you so much for noticing because nobody on the morning show not as my eyebrows and got them done like to thank them. I'm done. There's a new technique got them laminated. Have you heard of that basically a perm for your eyebrows. Oh also like I used to have droopy eyebrows like the haircut droop down and now they are standing straight up. Because that's like the bushy look is like cool right now. I love it. So that's that I got that done another GonNa stay like this for a few weeks. I was noticing that they were a little bushier. Thank you so much it helps. It makes me look more wake right. Yeah no more droopy eyebrows. Making me look sleepy. Where did you go to get those done? This girl named Lisa Lisa on the Olympic. And give you her number. Did you like who's who gave me the. Yeah you know it comes from somebody so really shutout Haley Ellie. My makeup artist was like she's always been telling me that my my eyes are droopy but she just thought it was like my actual is and then she was like Eureka. It's the hair on your eyebrows browse. They just keep down. She's if you've got them laminated. And because when she brushes them up and does like the Joe they look I look very away right so henceforth got an appointment the next day and here I am trying to three point eight. Thank you you should try it. I'm I'm into that. You don't really droop. Those due to say every time like when people get lash lifts and then I guess eliminated browse like the lash lift. Never works because I have such thick straight eyelashes and I'm so many of them and I always say my eyelashes are really stubborn. So you might need to leave it on a little bit longer like girl. I've done all eyelashes and then and it's done and they're like oh you yeah. Wow they really are stubborn. I learn what it would look like so awake. I feel like I already have a high arched eyebrow and everyone's always like lay off the boat dogs but they look fluffier eyebrows. Yeah Yeah I mean. I don't think it would do anything bad. That just might not be noticeable. So claiming together. She didn't tell you these student at Kinko's they put your face laminating machines interest Right aft absolutely do right now Roland at this family and this is so sweet the the subject line on the email was east must read wholesale crocks and then she said okay we lied. We're not selling wholesale crocs but we need your help on away bigger situation. We are three sisters who are the best of friends. We are much less for this podcast. We are all Tanya's but we love Beca catoon our baby sister turning eighteen and becoming a modern woman on December eleventh which is tomorrow as we record this. We are so proud of who she has become. And they'll automaker birthday such a special. What if she get a phone call you guys especially Eastern? Wow Katie. Beth is obsessed with Eastern. She wants to name her child eastern in hopes he grows up to be just like him. She loves cracks. And even coined the phrase Oh my crocs because Oh my God was not allowed in her house growing up. Our parents have recently become foster parents to two kiddos after having begged him for years assisted Jordan and I are both out of the house. Katie Beth is still home and it's much of a blessing as those new additions are Katibat has had to make the most amount of sacrifices and changes to her life since she's the only siblings still living at home we're so proud for selflessness and wondered. Show her how amazed we are by her through you. So can we give her a little call. So what do you think she wish we have eastern call her. Yes she would you crank. We love a crank. Frank call what do you think he's doing. What's believable like this time of year? Say something about Krog say hi. Katie rather is eastern colleague. Here this year. What her reaction is? That could be. Good I'm down. What do you WANNA do? I'm torn because I kind of like you pretending you're like I'm somebody like from the Hollywood foreign press and like trying to do like some rain recon on The movies that are nominated this year or something like that. Why do you people not do that? I'm just like I'm just like hitting up people like if you had to vote for one of the best movies. Who would now be willing to do that? It hasn't happened to me.

Becca some good emails here lines anyway. Wire boy so confusing. I was on tinder for fun. Nothing came of it but one guy mashed with. He wasn't really my type but I was bored so I messaged him first. He's three years older than me. I'm nineteen he's twenty two. Our conversation was great. We had a good banter. He asked me for my snapchat and give it to them which is kind of funny that there's like an intermediate step going a young number after snapchat text someday on Halloween. We talked all night and you're randomly stopped messaging me and we haven't had any communication since except for the fact that he watches which is all my snapchat stories. I liked him. I don't know where things went wrong anyway. I gave up. Here's the weird part after. Hearing time to talk about hinge downloaded that too and I really liked it but one day. Yeah I was on it and I see this guy on that APP to. I haven't liked his profile because I want to see if he messages me. I but every time I go on there his profile shows up. Is this fate telling me to give things another shot and message him or do I give up. Because he hasn't reached out to me. I've never been kissed. I'm so lost with this stuff. I feel like whatever you guys have to say Eh. Maybe some guidance reassurance on what to do congrats on the to Pete. Oh I we're GONNA have very different opinions on. Oh start. No yeah no you go ahead please my lady. I only say this because he you've already talked. He's senior snapshot. He still watches your stories and I think if he wanted to reach out and talk to you he would do so. Because I think that's a general idea of knowing if someone's into you that they'll reach out and try and I think because you're eighteen and you are on this app you will have so many more options. Shin's to to talk in Florida and chat with people who don't make you feel insecure or make you question things so I would say move move onto something new okay. Are you going to say should have said No. No no but I'm pulling up. There is a there is a lyric that I really just want to hone in on. Give me one second. If you don't mind I'm coming to find that people have these realizations they all. Aw come back around. It could be a few months. It could be a few years. It could be even longer than that but they all come back around so what I suggest you do is like him so that you can open the door to our conversation to let him reach out to you. Because I'm hand. You have to like like their things to open the Combo so like him so that he's you're still in his like Zeitgeist and let him come to you because communicable said it best. She said isn't it something that I get more when I'm giving you nothing. Isn't it magic that when you stop looking for it happens. Basically she was after this guy for so long long and then she moved on started doing her own thing and then this guy all of a sudden comes back from nowhere and it's happening to me currently so what I'm telling you Asia. Aw is to keep the door open but let him come to it on his own times times time to like like. I don't see there's no harm in liking but I definitely don't think you should reach out. I yeah but keep the door open. Just keep it open. Keep a bunch of doors open. Maybe like another photo. Oh maybe watch his snapchat. Just kind of be in their marinate in that gray area of the two options. She gave this fate telling me to give it another shot to give up. You're saying kind of neither you kind of just live your life and what's meant to be we'll be This is from Lauren. My boyfriend wants to beyond Christmas dating my boyfriend of off the year now. We met before Christmas last year. This is going to be a first holiday season together as a couple. I'm Jewish. I've never celebrated Christmas and was really looking forward to the fun things I've never experienced before I knew when our first date that he didn't love the holidays he told me it's because his dad passed away when he was twelve. It's hard for him ever since. I can't begin to understand what that must be like but I genuinely thought that if I brought some cheer back into this time of year that he might start having fun again. I guess I was wrong because we got into a fight over it. And he's basically saying you want to skip Christmas all together. I don't want to be selfish but I also don't know how how to best handle a boyfriend that's grieving I've never dealt with loss like that before and I wanNA help. I don't think avoid holidays the best way to deal with his emotions but how can talk with them about it and be sensitive to how he's feeling. ooh That's a tough one maybe Above your paygrade. I just read the I. I taught reading the headline says my boyfriend wants to be songs Christmas and I thought it meant to break up with her for this is tough I feel like I can relate to this. He does not like holidays because of the trauma with his family in the past and it brings them all back to that has never family to celebrate it with really and so he does not look forward any of these days and I feel like it's kind of a similar situation. I think that there's I totally. I have a lot of empathy for people that have a hard time with the holidays because of situations like that because I I think it can be really hard because everybody's so extra happy in the commercials are like everybody's singing and there's music playing everywhere and it's like it reminds you of something that's so dark you you know But I do think there's a way to kind of tiptoe into it like gently and gracefully and maybe like suggest you guys get a tree like you know I'm just like I've never. I've never done this and I'd love to get a tree like would you want to do it with me. And kind of give him the option to go with you or not. And if he says no then don't harp on it and then like maybe go get had a Christmas tree with your girlfriend and decorate it with your girlfriend and just kind of like let it be there. I don't know she said they didn't live together. Right sure But just kind of like let it be in your place east end so he sees it when he comes over and just kind of like tip toe into the things. Just because it's your first Christmas together. I mean it's going to be your last and I think you can kind of like baby stops. Yeah take it slowly. It's going to be like gentle to his insensitive to his emotions and his feelings but also like if you wanting to celebrating Christmas if that's something you're excited about. I don't think you should not do it all together but I think you should do it in a way. That's sensitive to what he's going through. I it's hard to relate to something like this because I don't like the holidays are such joyful happy time but I think you know introducing a new like version of what the holidays can be to him. I think is really special and being able to say like we have these memories together now and it doesn't always have to be the memories of what was sad and loss but more what you've gained and our love or yeah like maybe you could even suggest like you guys going going to get some sort of like ornament together. That reminds him of his dad and I can be like on the tree every year and that can be like something special that like he thinks about it and you know what I mean like kind kinda just try and turn it into a little bit of try and turn it into a positive of like remembering him and having something special will be like a crystal angel ornament ornament or something. Yeah it sounds like a pretty good relationship otherwise so I hope you guys can make it through this sensitive to each other's needs and it sounds like you guys can work together on this good advice.

Okay well so for today, because we can only pick one, and my mind went automatically like if I snack icing lightning, terrible food like it's bad for you snacks, so I went with the good old classic. Flaming hot FRY. We all have a I'm a fan of if you. If you're a friend of mine, you know. I love flaming hot. Everything I believe that hot fries are the best. So. That's fine to why. This is this just because of the spice or the the FRY out Eastwick crunchy? Snack, it's just like the first thing that. POPs in my head. Of like I'm stoned, and I need a snack or something like that I wanted to this other favorite snacks are like I like cashews, nets and things. Cavernous. I. I eat shit cashews honestly do yeah. Wow!

I love these I prefer them to flaming hot cheetos, and they're not spicy as I remember as middle school. Yeah. I like them. They're not as spicy as I remember, but I love. A cheeto at Chino is always like a solid goto. These are these are crunchier cheeto right like? Yeah Detectors Bentley like bumpy in hard. Can I can I throw some nerd knowledge on you. Go ahead. Let's hear it. Gives no way. snack, foods, cheetos, or doritos or so addictive MSG. Know, that used to be the reason, but physically the powder that they put the dusting on. Is like. Basically, but when it hits your tongue, there's more flavor per surface area than any other food. So it makes it addictive, and that's why you can't stop eating it because your taste buds are like what is this shit? It's the best most optimal flavor I've ever experienced, and then you keep going. Yeah, he's doritos. She does same thing Hachi. Same thing same thing so I wanted to one of our listeners. We all know Ashley who had a birthday as she said her's is oreos and peanut butter. Asked them so good, my God. I do that all the time. UNTWISTED OREOS and make them double stuff. Yes I do everywhere the other thing. She said her Goto is popcorn with butter, salt and cinnamon sugar.

Hot Ruffled runner in my top five flaming hots, thank, God because ruffles are like the most. UNAPPRECIATED snack food. There's a massive flavor variation. Can Never GonNA fault level the Orange Russell. The guess what it is. It's going to love about ruffles.

I think those are the two winners. Actually we wanted this week. I ultimate stress. Snack -gratulations you both when you get syphilis? Wait the. My sincere So he wanted to talk about, so did you guys know I want it? When do you think the first recorded? Recipe. was ever presented to the world. I'm curious to see Gimme. GimMe a timeframe when you think it was go ahead, bashing I'M GONNA go. Eight thousand. Mess. Potato! Okay. What about you Miss Mariam? Are you talking about like a recipe a recipe, a recipe written down. We're not talking about cookbook yet, but a recipe I. Don't know I'm not I'm on I'm a drag queen. I'd say. A four hundred BC okay. Eric stuff stuffing your face with real snacks after I'M GONNA do. The price is right like two hundred. Four the night win. One. Maybe, so the oldest? Written recipe ever found was on the walls of ancient Egypt in ancient Egypt a tomb. Back into nineteenth century BC It taught people how to make flap read. Right. Yes, about right this second this one. I found very fascinating. The second oldest one was the fourteenth century. BC describing. How do you make Describing. How do you make of submarine? Locally referred to as liquid bread, it was captured on clay tablets as part of him to the goddess. And Casey. Which is dedicated to beer. They say call me Nikki CEO Name Yeah So. What got us a beer. She was guys shit. I like her I know right, so the first recorded cookbook that is still in print. Today is called a cult culinary matters, and it was written by Abbasi's I think. Is that how you say in the fourteenth century AD Rome, and this is what I found fascinating about this. It contains more than five hundred recipe recipes including Benny with Indian spices. He the guy that wrote it. made a ton of money. And he squandered all of his wealth on food, and when it came down to his last few, whatever amount of money he hosted an epic banquet, and at the end of the epic banquet, he poisoned himself in died at the by. That's how he wanted to leave it because he's wandered off his well I. AM So, proud to the Italian because of the Romans. You know we know God yeah. We invented fried chicken. Posh The first recorded fried chicken recipe for ancient Rome K. and Back in the day we used to have these rooms at at festivals called Amatorio. Oh, yeah, where we would eat so much, we would yak, so we could eat more and I am a fan of that was a that was an upper class thing Tom. That was associated saying a lot of Italian. Eating disorders well. I don't think so I think they just did it could eat more, but can you imagine glutton, but can you imagine going to like chopper and Ivy and being like Oh my God this? Guy's got. It all up, so make some room, so this brought up a question. If you guys were to write a cookbook, what would it be and what would it? What would the specialty be in the Cook? Can don't shake your head. Meriem, think long and hard. Oh! What is it? Honey! It's southern cookbook. How? Answer. Would be your go-to two recipes. Probably like dumplings and dress in. and. Some people don't know how to make banana pudding, and that's just easy, and some people just ignorant. Fried Green Tomatoes would. Have Cheese. This is another question for you. Miss Mariam T had cooking show. What would it be and like? What would the cooking show be? On? I'll answer that. I would have a cooking show and I. Think you know who I would love to cook with I would like to do like a snoop dogg Martha Stewart thing except. I'm so erratic and crazy and I. I WANNA know. I WANNA. Be Paired with somebody calm and collected like I. Know Garden and just make. motherfucker. Side Note. Can I sign up for him yet? Guys. No, I was on a TV show yes. Yes, in Corner, guys! You sound like all right. No I don't. Yes Oh Rob Dudack Produced one season of a show called snack off of which I am on episode six of I think. Club it's called gas station delights Mac and cheese. I think so basically. The whole premise of the show is union friends or Party and you're stoned or whatever? You can't leave the house. This is like before ubereats. You gotTa make something with what's what the kitchen and felt like? The first round was called gas station delight so as all shit from like seven eleven, but then like the condiments stuff that you would have to use like salt and pepper packets, and like ketchup packets, and you'd have like half a half jar of cheese in the fridge. Thing. Where you find this Miss Mariam. If they want to watch, old ones view. Down If you. Find it I'M GONNA. Nancy drew this shit and posted up, but I I one I have the Golden. The winner got the winner got two thousand dollars, and a this giant golden sports like rapper necklace hangs down to my belly button. Send the garage. Okay you, what about you? If you had to cookbook and a cooking show? Give us a rundown. What would it be I'm curious about this. I think my cookbook would be like weird, seafood. Okay! ADS like exotic seafood. That like Doc. Yeah, Shit! That you guys wouldn't eat, but you don't know is actually delicious like tuna collar. Sierra, Jen, Pasta okay so. Thank you because if it's done right, it's actually a really. Delicious, but sometimes in San Diego. It's really seafood Ian Low tidy Oh, this is a good question for you bashing because you go to a lot of restaurants in you're in the food economy. What is good restaurant in San Diego for seafood? Oh okay. Oh, that's a loaded question. Okay, so for cheap seafood just like I. I. Yeah, and then a higher end one where they got us like this type of stuff. You're talking about something. If people are looking for something, a little, different, a little higher class where with the go. So my favorite like hole in the wall. Seafood Places Mitch's in Point Loma. It's amazing. It's it's not like cheap, but it's just like all the sport fishers land over there on that side of moment, and they sell their catch directly to this restaurant, so it's like day of fresh cut. You get like a different kind of fish every day. They have D. fucking best octopus tacos I've ever had in my God damn, life see. That's the trick you and bashing because octopus, all really rubbery good bad. No there's excellent. They do a really good job with scallops to like you go over there and you're and Tacos aren't that expensive? It's maybe like five bucks for the octopus ones same thing for the scallops, the kinds of fish. For the higher end, if somebody inside in little Italy Oh, ironside is so good, and they have excellent biscuits there. or their bread I. Don't know if they're actually did Robbie. And I and my brother and sister. We did one of our Christmas. Dinners at Iron Teddy, it was right before good. It's so good. Say also have a great octopus arm like one of the Best I've ever had. So. You're so you're channel like your food show it'd be I'll see saucy food I like. I like I like Super Weird Shit like anchovies and like. Mackerel excitingly anchovies. Like. They're not even seafood. They're like land snails. Okay, and they eat oatmeal for like a week and they clean out so that they're not toxic and everything, and then you just like sauteed with garlic and butter fucking amazing. How about you, Eric? What would your your Shoghi Your Shoka? So my cookbook would be titled. I mostly top here the sad meals. Please come cook. Yeah so it'd be a dating show pretty. Shocking. That would that's what I cook like four meals for myself, and that's it so yeah, please come. I think mine would be a show about pies. Pie I love. Make and speaking. Robinson get it I. was if we were all in the same room and we were all doing this God this I know, but I baked it this morning for you guys so I'm obsessed with like the movie waitress and the musical waitress I loved it. I loved it when it first came out. But pies always had it been for cakes and pies, so we do a show about a savory sweet pies cake. All of that Kinda stuff but I attempted this today to make a Cherry Pie so here it is. We we. there. No Zip plastic. Bitch I what I did. We just flat why? It's kind of. It didn't like raise as much here. But it looks like a pizza I know. I did circles instead of stripes on the top, and then I put chocolate covered cherries on top. And then and then baked with brown sugar, so it got crispy on top with brown sugar instead of white sugar so. That was. Fourth of July. I would. I would do pies I. would definitely have a channel all about pies because I think. By. Okay, so this is another question. Since we do drink a lot on this show and then normal life when you do one of those nights where you're just like completely ship face the next morning. What is your guys as go hangover food like what gets you through the day of that rough hangover. Your offbeat. This should be easy. This is almost every day for lassie. It's a variety. I know I got one of two ways. Okay, go ahead. Miss Mary him either WanNa Fuck in big ass I bowl. So random. If it's like hot and I'm hung over like a giant US I. I can feel like the vitamins like going into my body, and like yeah, but if not, if I if I can like, stay in. I pushed the out in the air, conditioning or the fan that I want like I want a bacon sausage egg cheese burrito from Kalima as All of the in the world, and a side of beans and rice, and a fucking Mexican coke and a gallon of water, and that's what I want. For. People who don't live in San Diego. Ca Lima's a TACO shop here in. Part, but they are one of the best Taco shop's. They have some of the best food and their drive through line as always long, but it's so worth it and I know. She has a secret over his his meals during the week. Daddy to me about that.

And freeze them. And they come out perfect. You just defrost them overnight. New come become the. Can you chill what what type of burritos usually get from clemens, so the ones that hold up best or the San Diego? which is a California Burrito without the fries? That one is just like a staple. I also get their chicken Philly, which is healthy. It's just like bell, peppers, onions, chicken, and cheese. Not Bad is so good. I love that that you just buy a bunch of Burrito and free. Yeah, it is, but like I also, I don't eat. Huge Burrito like half at a time. It lasts me for two weeks when I'm in a pickle like if I just don't want to cook, I, just throw one of those in the microwave. Hawaiian, Burrito? Pineapple in it. I don't like pineapple. Everything. Nothing like you know. That I'm with you Miriam I WANNA, try that Auto Bata Ham, Jack Cheese and pineapple is. I'll eat auto bother, but it's not something that I like crazy with bashing. With Pineapple on pizza on anything besides a cake or something sweet now I'm not here for High Napa on everything I know. Everywhere. It, just make your come tasting. Okay Eric Whiz Yours. No, I didn't get finished bashing bashing. What is your to hang over food that you always get besides Burritos Shit. Yeah okay. Mine is also a TACO shop, but I'll go to. Cheat I'll do Lima's I'll admit that I'll go and get a burrito from there. Frequently, but the other one that I like is Cheetahs which is just like a few blocks down Cheetahs. It's a Mexican banker bakery and they have croissant sandwich. That is massive. It's like this big. It's Mexican croissant eight bucks. But I also go and get like a bunch of grinches, and then they have this other thing called the bouillaud cheese, and it's like a little bread baked with like Keisha Fresco in the middle and Jalapenos and it's so good in the morning. Throw God well. What about you? Eric was your go to hangover food? Okay, so you guys all know. I order the same thing every time in you roll your eyes every time. And it's.

It's about these brothers who've come to America in the open in Italian restaurant, and it's like a hit with the Americans, and so this is the dish content. Tim I think it is I, don't know. More than me. I Bell Warning Watch. This scene is Armani. and. So the the whole thing is they baked this dish? which apparently is a hard dish to make and they serve it to people, and it is iconic like you wait the whole movie for this scene, because a movie builds up to them opening the restaurant in America, it's a great film if you guys have not seen. It looks. Wish? I forget what it's called God. It's Tim Pano Ti. Say. Know! How To. Get like a Spaghetti Jello mold way. It's what's the house. It Spelled T. imp a Oh, yeah you.

That's like a Maltese thing, yeah! Are the Italian or Maltese. Italian I believe? If I haven't seen this movie in a while, but I remember when I watched this movie. It was so good this movies all about food. So good, but I love this reaction of Lake, the restaurant people who are eating this dish, and so the for people who don't now they're in the film. There's another head of a restaurant. I believe Oh. There's Rossellini. And they're serving this dish to prove that they're like kind of the better cook or whatever, but it's so good. Hold on I want. This part. I don't. I don't know. I'm not like a big hardboiled egg person neither my least favorite way to eat into this. So fucking good I should. So the other one of the main guys in the film eats the dish and he goes up to the guy who cooks it and says this is so good. I should kill you. And that's it's such a good movie. Go Watch big nights so this from your question. When was the last time you had a dish? That was just so good that you just couldn't like. It moved you. Have you ever eaten a food? That's like that I just was like. This is the best thing. Ever change your. Yeah. I'm curious for you bashing because you're a really big Foodie in your your family and everything, so he has there been a dish that how you've tasted, and it's just ultimately changed your life. Show Lot, but the last one that I can remember before we went in was Anime in downtown, so Brian Malarkey restaurant. And Day had an Asian chicken salad like literally just like a chicken salad.

Old Southern chocolate is like that, if more like I'm used to the creamy type of like on the cream pie.

We're actually over time, but here's some celebrities with the weirdest food fetishes and I read this article from Washington posts that everybody has a food fetish whether it's the way you eat your food whether it's certain types of foods you eat. It's all under a fetish, but the sexual sight of food fantasists cut. God Damn, Rillo. Lobbying I believe. What it is.

Episode 131: Im All Out of Urine

"All right. You want to be in three to one. The countdown is unnecessary. Zero credits. Study scary monsters sprite spice grill IX stops mosquitoes from having sex, which proves not even buds wanna listen to that shit. And welcome back to zero credits. The show where we talk about things. My name's Henry. And my name's John to congratulate you on a very difficult joke. There was a lot of like alliterate action that was like a tongue twister. It kind of was and together Henry and John combat. The sounds which can only be described as an outside dog fighting. So the the interesting thing to me about whatever's going on that side is they've got some country jams. It's some country go on on where in the new or back in the new room the new setup different configuration, hopefully better for sound. And hopefully better for us in the long run as we are now now have a wife to contend with to contend. So there's a new bed anew stand. New computer? There's some art near basically night in the same room. I'm not even looking at the same wall. You're not we've actually never looked at this wall before I wanna take a moment right now for the people in the podcast. People in. That's swear, the people in the pot guests for the fans listening at home. The people about the podcast people about the podcast on the do them a favor. And let's describe this new wall that we're facing. I knocked the microphone stand the. So let me take the first try at describing the the the road the wall. So there is a there is a painting. I believe is what you'd call it. Maybe a print. It's a print. The so it has a lot of imagery on it. I believe there is a rooster by route kind of like a weathervane because you can see like the little arrow pointing where the Roosters stand. They've kind of put that over like a left turn u-turn. Okay. Sign is also just the word band. And there's a jug that says love grandee, orange grocery and in the middle of the the whole painting. There's a note trust passing something I think maybe it says no trespassing Spanish Where'd you get that we found that at a roadside art sale. Oh that seems about right? Basically, one of these companies that they fulfil art orders or like contractors and builders, you know, how you walk into any public space. There's always some like art on the wall of art the real people through some shit together. Sometimes and so a company. He makes that stuff they don't just find it. And sometimes they're like, hey, we've got too much of this stuff. We're gonna sell it for cheap on the side of a road. We picked up like three pieces that day. And at one was one of my favorites. We've got too much meaningless art all art is meaningless. Speaking of meaningless. This week's episode is brought to us by the same beer sponsor is every week the leftover beer for my wedding. I have updated at a little bit, but drinking the torpedo extra PA by Sierra Nevada a beer that I used to like what happened. Why don't you like it anymore? Over exposure, really ruins all things, man. Can you imagine drinking another live oak of on after you get through with the eighteen cases, you had to drink Willie of two cases left, and I still really enjoy this beer, that's a testament to its qualities go. It's always light. It's always kind of fruity. There's some oaky notes which against comes from the the name of the brewer. Oh, live oak. Live oak tree a beautiful tree like beautiful, tree, speaking of beautiful trees and country jams. Wait what? So you your neighbors? In addition to their angry, angry dog noises are listening to so some pretty decidedly country music. Why do you keep bringing country music denote? I'm gonna talk about today. I know what I want to talk about today. What do you wanna talk about it? That's the he Hodge. What is the year haw agenda? So we are duty-bound on this podcast talk about what's happening within the Geist within the cultural consciousness that exists in society, and to be honest with you in American society because we're America based in a lot of media is produced by very Ken's were America base. We American tastes. So have you heard of a little music maker called a little mass ex? I am now showing John the article that I came across that. I wanted to talk about today, and what you can't see because we don't video is that the articles name is Billy Ray Cyrus responds to country music controversy after joining little nets Xs old town road. So we can maybe talk about this together because we're both pretty familiar with this point. I think this was a very interesting phenomenon. We gotta lay out the time line for the people because this kind of happened in the flash like flash in the pin quick so low mass x he released old town road. It actually goes back a little bit further than that. All right. So little mass ax is extremely online. Little NASA started as I believe what a lot of people call a tweet decker. So he was someone who wait is that somebody who has into corporations via the shadow run network. No that's sweet deck. A tweet decker is someone who finds relatively popular things and just kind of re tweets them for clout. Just kind of a Twitter bottom. Feeder by his own admission. How do we become that? Because I we still we had been sitting at thirty two followers four years others. No honor in a tweet decker. How a tweet deck. However, that's a little NASDAQ's dead. And eventually, I don't know what the time line is between his original Twitter behavior to what adventure became but Twitter for a little while has had this message of yeehaw vibes. So this this idea that this kind of parochial country 'isms. Take into their most extreme stereotyping can be like me. So I'll allot of this has been exemplified by people. Posting pictures of cells wearing very traditional Lester n- wear hashtag, hashtag, hav is is this a real thing could go to Twitter right now. And see. Yes. So now little acts as being extremely online. What he did was. He bought a beat from someone. I think in Norway, and then produced a pretty country inspired like hip hop song. However, he put it on the country music section of IT tunes or e hav Ives people have really ruined via. I've that's kind of all over the place now. But essentially, he. So just K pop. Yeah. Yeah. There's will you have is. Maybe there's like some some country music overtime overtones in that's or undertones anyway. So he bought this beat from Oregon continue to show me things on Twitter. We're gonna engage in the conversations this cones from somebody named Jessica with occur K is south by south west natural because I want to go, I don't even like country music. But I love Leon bridges end. The Vides Twitter is my Google. Person has a lot of stuff going. So what the culture what's happening? So essentially little mass x beat him somebody possibly Norway need Baden veto beat. Yeah. Wrote old town road, but put it on the country music section. What's wrong with that? It's a country song. I feel like we're okay. So I can spiral into so many different discussions. Let's continue with the time line. But no, it it pretty much goes directly into your time. Because he put it on the country music section. And then essentially what happened from there, which spurred the controversy in spurred its popularity was people started posting hashtag, videos and yeehaw juice. Have you heard of juice is that a don't forgive? My ignorance of anyone finds this offensive is that horse blood, no horses find that various pensive awhile. I think they would because it's their blood. They call that Nate liquid Jesus. Anyway, so old Tom road came out and people started to post videos to I don't know if you've heard of it but tick tock, oh, that's where people lip sing music. They have not performed. Yes. It is a there. Two good things of. Tick tock number one are Utah juice videos, and the other ones are ones where people are grown adults who are irreparably damaged are getting divorces and their lip synching. Very sad. Love sauce burning pictures of their accent crane like divorce thirst trap music videos. Very good. You're telling me that's better than maybe Albie tracer videos. Yes, you're telling me that's better than hit or miss videos. I don't know what hitter. Mrs. Well, do yourself a favor and cancel your internet subscription because tick tock is a virus. Tick tock has a lot of problems. However, I know too much old town road showed up on talk. And what people would do is before the beat drops on all town road. They would sip from a bottle that they wrote yeehaw juice in with the beat drops. They would be in country regalia and line dancing, high, really. Like so like Harlem shake did kind of stir. I think there were other versions where you know, the beat would be building up in you do a thing in the beat drops. And then suddenly with editing with stopping recording starting recording the whole content of the video changes. There's there's something to say about the first one of those at the next ninety nine billion that come out. I feel like the videos are good. However, I think this leads directly into your time line, the the did enjoy a renaissance he Honasan's and eventually the party become much more complicated because like all things the whites became aware of it get something like it was climbing on the country music billboard charts. I believe those. It was ranking up ended it had topped out a couple other billboard charts. However on the country music chart it was removed. Exactly like, it was climbing on the the country music, specifically billboard chart, and all of a sudden, it was just stricken and said that's not country music, which opens up a huge debate about will what exactly is country music. And that's once you start drawing lines in the sand for your art it defining. What is in what isn't part of your art as very substantial slope? 'cause now it's like, suddenly, oh, it can't have a modern beaten become Trie while you got a rule out all of the country pop songs from the past decade. And then you kind of boil it down down like you have to ask the question because of of little net. Nasa cts will last ex you have to exit question while is because he's black is that is that why you removed his song. Yes. Or did you read billboards reasoning as to why they removed from the charts? I did not do you have pulled up. I don't have pulled up. The essentially said that it lacked the the requirements to be a country song because it didn't invoke images of certain kind of lifestyle associated with country music, which seems like a cop out to say we couldn't do it because he's black. If you say that if you say it lacks elements that vote to a simple lifestyle or certain lifestyle. All you have to do is go to the lyrics, and if the late like the lyrics of oak, Amy, imagery and all of that lifestyle didn't define it. Which protects them a little bit. But if you find any sort of imagery that folks sort of the normal countries stuff, then you don't have ground to stand on. So if you if you look at it, and this gets more interesting as the story develops. But if you look at the actual lyrics in little NASDAQ's song, they're just the lyrics from country song. Yeah. So I think the first verse I got forces in the back horse tack is attached had his Matt black at the boots black to match riding on a horse high. You can whip your portion I've been in the valley, you ain't been off the porch. Now, just country music that that I verse we got forces. We got boots horse tack. We got all of these very specific images in terms that I'm sorry of vote a certain type of lifestyle, and it's it fits the parameters of country music as we understand them. Yeah. If you took those put those over anything else with a typical. Country performer than it if it would just be a country song. But then it does get interesting. Well, this is the part I really wanted to talk about because little NASA, of course, asong that poll than he felt it was unfair. So I think he started reaching out the people and reached out to one person specifically a country music legends star, Billy Ray side Cyrus. Yes. And axed him to remix it in a staunching way. Because I tweet it. I tweet it celebrities all the time. I don't know how he went about it. But I try to context celebrities all the time astonishly he got through to -bility sires and Billy Ray Cyrus like in a day was like yet here it is. Yeah. And did he he remixed it? He got in the studio to drop bars on the song. And sing that song is now speaking to the controversy of did it get pulled because. His race for because of the perceived. John Rosa music, let alone what it Vokes. Sure that sucks. But the the fact that Billy Ray Cyrus came in and said, no is a matter of fact, I'm a country music legend, and this is an incredible song. And I'm going to work on it and drop a verse in it and be honored to do. So because he he's not doing it just to make a political safe statement. I feel like if the song was not that did not warrant the position on the billboards. He probably would not have gotten involved, but he east, you know, musical person. He can recognize musical talent. And so is okay. Yeah. I'm gonna support you because there's something here men. It's it's wrong that they're taking it away from you. Now, do you have anything to say about the content of Billy Ray's lyrics? I do not know the content of Bill arrays lyrics. I'm on the outside of this the scandal. So the interesting thing about the controversy surrounding that as they said that it did not voca certain im-. Edge of certain lifestyle. So that could not on the billboard top one hundred for country music. It is currently sitting at the top number one of the billboard list of country music. Yeah. Because of the addition of Billy Ray Cyrus verse and his please tell me his verse is all Abella hidden up in the club and doing coke off strippers S's. Do you want me to read? You the lyrics? Billy, Ray Cyrus country legend added to the song that apparently of vocal image of country music. Can it please just the word yet? So it is hat down town living like a rockstar spent a lot of money on my brand new guitar babies. Got a habit diamond rings undefended sports bra riding down rodeo in my Maserati, sports, car, gut no stress because I've been through all that I'm like a Marlboro land. So I kick on back wish I could roll on back to that old town road. I wanna ride till I can't no more completely not country as as ING. This is amazing. 'cause you know, and you got. You gotta think he did it on purpose. Right. I feel like he has to have made a conscious decision to be like if the if the controversy is this can't be on the country top one hundred because it doesn't have Okun image. I make country music legend, and I'm going to drop like hip hop vs on this to somehow solidified as being a country song calling out the Crecy yet calling the brazen. Apocrypha of them taking it off the billboards in the first place. What was funny is in bode Burnham's as I stand up special. I wouldn't really call it that and his comedy special. That's a better word comedy special make happy he performs a song called pandering where he points out the hypocrisy of country music stars. They all have very nice things. None of them live the type of life that they're singing about. And then here we have Billy Ray Cyrus making statements with his lyric choices. Singing about the type of lifestyle. He no doubt probably has that does not mesh with the country music lifestyle that that that little Nass X was actually portraying. It's like this is this is all perfectly connected to yet. We got you you, we got you. When your web of stupid lies. Why did you take the song up in the first place? But here's the real question. The Billy Ray Cyrus addition to the song actually improve it actually think it did. Okay. So if you listen now, if you listen to told town road versus the old town road remix, the remix just sounds better. Yeah. Plus, it's it's super awesome to listen to it to hear Billy Ray Cyrus drop bars that are really good. And it's like any other like good featured. Verse on any other like hip hop rap. Saw like when you hear like, yeah. That's that other guy and he's making the song zone. Do his thing. And that's back to that one guy. Yeah. That's that's why collaborations thrive so much hip. Hop is just it's you get that immediate little rushing. It's that guy. But the fact that's Billy Ray Cyrus. Crazy. That's and that's awesome. You know, wouldn't you get into positions like Billy Ray Cyrus or anyone who has unmasked clout in the industry to make a statement. And had it stick. I feel like it's sort of duty over sponsor -bility or it would. It's just what I would do if I were in that position to stick up for the little good. Yeah. To support your personal stamp of endorsement on their work as another creative person even say like, oh, maybe say, oh, he bought a beat. So that's not country music. Play your music. I don't care. You know, we live at age of regurgitated art, you know, people are slapping things together every comedian at one time or another has said the same joke verbatim because there's not a lot of ideas out there. Yeah. You have to appreciate that. At the end of all this Billy recitals could have made a lot of choices for how to handle this. He could have gone like full culture vulture just released like a complimentary version of it. That would super silent suck. He he could've not done it or he could have done it and included like sappy evocative country imagery in his lyrics. But no, not only did he make a choice to help this dude out and also increase his brand result. But he also called out kind of implicitly and smartly the hypocrisy of gate keeping genres I feel like you could comment on him increasing his brand as a side effect of this. But I don't think it would be a direct motivator because little Ness ex. I still call them little nasty. Little mass x sought him out. It wasn't like all. All of a sudden, here's Billy Ray Cyrus coming in to save the day. I feel like, you know, we have these moments where we screamed the boy to popular culture, and we don't expect anyone to answer. I feel like that's what will mess X was doing away stew screaming into the void in the one. One instance, the void screamed back on spit out. Billy Ray Cyrus, you know, a quantum leap situation. It's it's the best thing that could have happened out of Twitter. One may be the last thing that I'd like to talk about in in reference to old town road is what the old have you seen the cover are too old town road. No to the single. This is the cover are to the single old town road is just a black horse galloping to the right the rental advisory sticker. So it's just a life background areas of beautiful, shiny, black horse, black beauty. If you will. And I is in that movie. Do you know what the cover art to old town road remixes, please tell me Billy Ray Cyrus wearing Ray bans with like diamond studded tea horse came back with another horse, actually. That's that's brilliant. Yeah. That that one horse ran off got another horse. So that same black beautiful horse and a Brown beautiful horse coming back to the left assuming that that other the right to go get it all really good. Who who does little NASA Xs marketing, we need to hire them pro. I mean at this point, they're unaffordable, you're you're most likely rate. Wade's nineteen. Yeah. I hate everything. Ship has sailed. I saw a really a really funny thing. Somebody on Twitter posted like they were doing a threat of these artists are overrated. Riposting pictures of the artists and in the reply in the threat of here's even more underrated artists, and they're in the right bottom corner is a picture little necessary. I say overrated. Okay. And little SX responded news like I've been famous for a week. I have one song. How can I be over like, you know, just how fast the internet moves? It seems like moments last a lot longer and the reality is it's been a week. But like it's already old news, you're already overplayed, even though you're not even on the radio, the the level of pure century. We have makes timescale possible. We were talking about how old elastic says. And I realized that he's ten years younger than I am poli shit. He's like, that's fine. That's the same. As me. We're the same age. But that made me think about twenty nine years, and then I realized the distance between now and nineteen eighty nine slash nineteen ninety is the same distance between nineteen eighty. Eighty and nineteen fifty. Are we old? I think we've might we all we might be all. Turned twenty nine this year. But I mean, if we look back at the things we like, this is like people in the eighties being like, our of everwood, TV didn't exist. I mean, we've gone in our lifetime. We have gone from a pre internet culture to a post post post, internet culture, a culture that is so tired of information being fed to us that the generation who was coming to age under us is completely rejecting everything. All outlets of news, all outlets of media. It's like they're in their own little I wanna call it a bubble, but they're in their own circle of culture their own Meden their own jokes thrown. It's fascinating to watch. Because it leaks out. You know, what I'd say they're in don't call it a bubble a tetrahedral? So have you ever heard of grappler Baki is grappler Baki very famous wrestler who used grapples? No, grappler, Baki is. A hyper violent, hyper masculine Japanese comic book. This going to be another double man crybaby where I get exposed to this. And then I have to contemplate my resistance for like three weeks. Baki is not that complicated. But it will make you feel a very gross. I'm not sure I'd recommend a really in in any circumstance interfacing too much with grappler Batna when he grows 'cause you know, I'm a degenerate so certain levels of grossness I completely get behind. So just to kind of give you some context for maybe what happens grappler, Baki people at Indy significantly more tame animated version reach into people's bodies pull their veins out. That's gross. It's like body gore. Gross. No one. No, it's it's very body horror. It's hyper muscular, However, I would like to repetoire account since retired by being extremely online. We're on. Twitter and shapes. So I would like to rep the Twitter account of Bachi out of context. Oh, no. It is translated pages of grappler, Baki taken out of context. I would like to read what this paved says allowed. Yes. Now that we've got no more year in left in you. How're you going to get out of this Tetra? Yep. It is it is a man standing shirtless in a tetrahedral. And presumably given the words given the words that I read this man in the Tetra Hejin has no more urine him. Guys. Context to soak. Lydia's powers completely equal to George Bush. But without weapons soup grappler Baki, by the way, in in addition to being a very gross. It's got a lot of like urine. And fighting those are the two requirements for PG thirteen as the two teams urine in finding. It has also featured a stunning cast of characters including George Bush junior Barack Obama Donald Trump. Well, I guess when you're the president of the United States, no anime or manga is safe. Donald Trump peas himself in grappler Baki. Read grappler, Baki or watch it actually the the enemies on Netflix now much it. I guess I don't I'm doing guy shoots himself in the face and still lives. You could do that. Go like exactly what he did. Right through the cheat rice of cheek if you do that yet. It's extremely painful. He doesn't credit close Jesus Christ as the call that the joke for life must be last week. Who knows oh, John? This is very embarrassing because we're half with the episode. We just blew right through the content that we both prepared. You mean, I yeah, we both prepared that that because I honestly that was that. Will you wanna talk about the cultural zeitgeist in other than political things that are leaking everything that was the big standout story. Because there's a lot of angles to discuss, you know, you've got a young creative person. You got on the stab celebrity. There's a raise angle and all this other stuff. So it seemed like that was the big topic of past week. What else? Happened really old town road is I should give it a listen. I don't listen to music much anymore. Ultimate roads. Very good. I listen to it on repeat at work today. But it's kind of the biggest thing going on in terms of like the culture, just as it pervades everything in terms of politics. I think we could really just kinda summit up. So we could just kind of go back and forth. Just naming are kind of this. The most recent entrance into the race for the White House. All start a democrat from Indianapolis named Martin Shaybah utter. He's hoping that his run as a as a three time mayor of Indianapolis, Indiana will secure him the seat, but his campaigns a lot to answer to he used to be a dog. Hey, and the sounds like a John Milady. No coming in. He's the most recent. But let's not talk about the independent turned democratic Senator from California pillows woods worth pillows Wadsworth hopes that his time spent in the fighting pits of Iraq will prepare him for a four to eight year stint as president of the United States. But his campaign has some hard questions to answer because he's the guy you remember what? Yeah. Remember, there was a little movie made a few years ago, it stirred a Tobey Maguire Natalie Portman, I forget the third guy called brothers and. One of the brothers goes off to war, and he has to kill a fellow American to get back home that entire movie was based on pillows Woodworth slot by. Yeah. So people really the the degree of public scrutiny. The pillows is gonna be under. It's pretty killed an American is brother. He can arm de killed his brother and arm. We watch Tobey Maguire pull that trigger. And now anytime pillows woods worth stands up to the political stump. All we're going to see that little boy face Pulham Amand size trigger and then in the soldier's life was the brother in that movie. I don't shake Jill Jill also pillows. What's killed Jake chill? All know, Donna. Jay, Jalen hall police. Toby Maguire's, brother. Oh. And then. You're not seeing this movie no badly Portman is married to Toby Maguire Tobey Maguire goes off to war he gets kidnapped. They get you know, they presume he's dead. So the news gets back to madly Portland that that her husband is dead and her brother and mall. Gic Jilin home console her and he kinda ends up kind of moving in. 'cause I think she's pregnant at the time. Oh, kinda move in kind of like I'm gonna help take care of you a few years later they end up getting married. And then it's revealed. Meanwhile, told me wire shooting the fuck out of another American soldier to survive, and he gets home and they're like, oh my God. I thought you were dead. And he's like nuts. Cool. But in the inside is like is not cool. I'm told him McGuire. Played Spiderman what are you jig? Jill knol, Mattie. Joan hall's brother man as Joel whole megajoule hill ever been a movie together. Donnie, Darko known lie realistic play siblings. Donnie, Darko good casting. Now. Of course, the third entrance into the democratic race for the White House. Now, this one it it's pretty controversial. I think you remember his name at his state and his previous occupation Kevin out of the no chance, they you know, that's like all that's the official nickname Rhode Island state. It's it says it on the license plates and. And you know, this was a conspiracy theorist turned born again Christian turned atheist turned Democratic Party leader on his his one e declared his own house, a momentum Paletti. So he's the mayor unbeliev was the once dungeon master for the Democratic National Committee. Exactly, he's the mayor of David's town. It's Tony shalhoub. Yes, Tony shalhoub. Now, the the thing about Tony Chalupa come up. I mean, a lot of people really the the Overton windows, but pulled farther left so visa advocate for higher. Minimum wage is very pro choice. He's saying all the right things. But do you remember back during World War Two? There was a Soviet female air force that the Germans called the knocked Texan the night witches, and they would do harassment raids on German territory, even penetrating deep into the heart of German territory to the capital cities, and they would fly outdated by planes. Even a World War Two. And when they ran out of bombs because the Soviet air force wouldn't give them you initiatives. They would drop railroad spikes on German troops. And they would they would drop a bomb barred men's on tank lines. They were really instrumental to the Soviet success in World War Two. But they were kinda stricken from the history books because they were a squadron of misfit women, the knock Texan, I need who could forget the knock Texan very small contingent of Russia air force. That was ran by all women who did some German rating, even deep into the whatever the fuck you said. Yeah. So everyone knows about the knocked Texan. But the interesting thing about Tony shalhoub. He believes the Knicks. It's okay. It's and he's running on the platform of Tony shillue pro choice, raise the little wage, the not Texan aka the night, which is the harassment bombardment squadron of the Soviet Union run entirely by women does not exist. I wanna pots because this is quickly derail even to have improv half weird facts. How much of it is improv everything about the movie brothers was made up on. No, no. I'm kidding movie. Actually exists. Let's see. Let's let's look brothers quit. Also twenty nine twenty thousand nine drama. It's not Jaylen. Oh, no. It is that still dictate home. Also for what it's worth get this cast, Jake Jilin all Toby voire. Nellie Portman Bailey, Madison Sam Sheppard. Meyer. Your look all these Eckerd had more than one that a lot of now the interesting thing, but Tony shalhoub. He does have a lot of process, but he was great in this Mazel L the model. L the Martin was Mazel. Yeah. He's the knock Tech's he's that's right place month as a reason that name was in Marquette. All right. So let's quickly move away. From whatever the hell that was John. I know we're very excited for Marvel's endgame game with the adventures all of our favorites coming back, but before that marvels in ventures amd agay. That's what I said. Is that is what I said. And my forcing Joe, no, no you disconnecting me for the thing. I already said correctly. Okay. Thank you cheeses. I'm mean, you're welcome. But before marvel releases their end game with the end of injures them adventures inventors and game before that really marvel madness DC like three weeks before dropped this little this little marble of a movie called SHA. Zam Zam this real captain marvel of a movie, and I haven't seen it have you seen it? I've not seen it. So we both haven't seen it. But I know success you wanna know why? Because jury Levi's in Zachary Levi can do no wrong Willard's that. But it's but it's been in theaters for one weekend one weekend. Joan and the news broke today after one weekend the the plans for a sequel Ardy running now they're already doing they're doing the sequel the writers coming back who knows about the director. But it's happening. Can you? Imagine how hungry the dogs at DC must be for success. I wanna talk about DC slash Warner Brothers gained plan right now, they released a slew of mixed reviewed superman Batman movies, ending in a very mixed Justice league movie where they fired the director in higher. Just Weeden to make the movie funny, then they released wonder woman in its smash haven there like all right? Do wonder woman to and the long break in. The Auckland comes out does awesome. Internationally, nationally, a few people saw internationally China eight that movie like doing awful man to Shas AM comes out has one good week at all, right? We're doing Zam to. Yeah. And then this Joaquin joker movies. But that's. That's. Shoker? This Joaquin Phoenix joker movie is coming out there. Doing wonder woman to they're doing Auckland to they're doing shows Zam too. And then there's the whole suicide squad to to buckle last week, it broke the intersex is not playing dead shot out of respect for Will Smith is gonna be played at completely different character. Apparently, which leads the questions like is very bitter is a sequel who knows I think that you'd be in DC game plan right now is green light every movie idea humanly possible. So I believe what they're trying to do at its unique strategy. We haven't seen it before. Now, granted the cinematic universe. Type is something that we haven't seen a lot of. So we're trying to make sense of what DC's doing, and I believe that they're pursuing a strategy, which I like to call the cue the financially viable, cinematic universe. Any movie proves to be. Financially viable, they get a Sikh old. And then we'll worry about connecting them at a future date. But may never happen. That is absolutely what they're doing. Because they're like if it seems like it's not only financially viable, but has some level any amount of cultural cachet, then they go for it. Yeah. 'cause like banana flick is out as Batman. Now. He has walked away from the role. He said in interviews that like, you know, he just couldn't crack the character. He couldn't crack the script for the movie real quick about real quick about by flick. If you see those pictures of. Smoking outside. He has a long long ago crack to the character of unhinged millionaire was lost everything long ago. He figured truly what Batman was WBZ just wasn't on board for his vision. And then that's probably like he found a very creative way to say creative differences in the didn't want to go with his route. But one thing you bring up a really good point that I wanna hit on on the head. In. That's not send what a hit been Aflac on the head. If he will let me, but I think okay. So this is this is the weird statement. But like the LEGO movie Batman is the most honest representation of Batman in the past two decades, a huh. And it's because the LEGO movie Batman, at least didn't Lega movie one in the eventually LEGO Batman has something the other Bama don't have that. They don't show, and that's heart. Wait like Chris Nolan. Did this whole reconstruction the Batman care to resist grin dark figure that his brooding past? And he's very macho. He's very dark, and he's very grim. But he doesn't have the heart that Batman has shown consistently through the the entire existence of the character. I mean, the character, Bruce, Wayne in Chris Nolan's interpretation is phenomenally thin, the most multifaceted. Character was Bain and Bain was like a pastiche of a proletarian hero of all the joker. But a lot of that was just in the performance. I will never not if ledgers performance of the Joe Grefe Philip that's one of the best at. Detaille sion's. We're gonna see ever good luck walking Phoenix. Whatever the hell you're doing. I don't know show joker. But a I I want the next iteration of Batman to kind of reintroduce the fact that it's not just the growling scary monster going after criminals like he talks suicide victims down he hit if the if the criminal is like in trouble. He will try to help. There's a reason why a lot of his villains go to Arkham asylum and not a prison. It's not because they're saying, but because he truly believes that they can be helped in reformed and become a normal member of society. Like his faith in humanity is always all time high. I mean, the thing that almost every I think every screen adaptation of Batman has missed which is fundamental to his character is the Batman is at his heart end to his detriment more often than not a deeply compassionate person. If like, we it is a pattern that repeats time and time again, and is played within the comic books over and over again in that batmans in batmans best interest is not to adopt a side kick or bring people into his operation. But he always does so out of compassion rather than pragmatism ended always ends up biting in the ass in that the person either betrays him isn't competent gets crippled like Batman is just fucking killed by crowbar and a bomb. Yeah. Or Damian and then later resurrected by racial goule. That's very complicated. There's a lot there. But the the thing about Batman is he's compassionate to a fault. So he will consistently display compassion, and it will always come back to bite him. It's his weakness and that it ties into his he never kills. He's so compassionate. He thinks people can be reformed. He's constantly like proven wrong, but he will never give up on humanity. He will never give up on the ability for people to reform and become good people, and the movies don't ever touch on that that is something that I I've always thought was kind of ludicrous about conversations regarding people have always Batman versus superman. Batman, Ono fucking go Cooper, whatever. But but wouldn't find them, but the Lynch pin of it falls comes down to usually statement of will Batman would win because batmans less powerful, but Batman has no weaknesses. Not getting wrong. No has always well other than when he had a gun and just killed people. And was basically dick Tracy in Cape. Batman has always had a weakness and that weaknesses deep, honest, compassion for human beings. Like Batman is a is a. Good guy, and it's bad that he's a good guy. And that's baked into his character. This point it would honestly be better for Gotham, especially if he were more of a bad guy more of a dick Tracy type of gun or like Spiderman Nawar and just killed people. It honestly, maybe the city would be a little better off. And like that. So Ben Affleck saying he couldn't crack the character. That's what I thought about is. That will no one has really cracked the character in decades because Batman has always been been trade portrayed, or, but trade, whatever I said as a muscle bound idiot who is not even the world grade of the -tective. He I wanna see a Batman movie that emphasizes the -tective ability. He's the world's greatest deck. Fuck you Sherlock, Holmes? And he's also like the most compassionate superhero on the planet. I'll give a fuck about. How much superman caves about the plant needs alien? He came here at legally. He took our jobs. Wow. I really do think the portrayal Batman is being what he is which is a deeply flawed deeply compassionate person would resonate way. Better. It's weird. Because a lot of people not like the George Clooney Batman. And I think a lot of it comes down to the direction, of course, cost designed the bet in the bowls or whatever. But that came close the George Clooney bad, but he had the heart to get the humor. You know? It was kinda like an elevation of the Adam west Batman, which was honestly one of the last good good in quotes for the time. Rendition of Batman, the Val Kilmer. One got got it. I don't know if Michael Keaton ever really touched on the heart of Batman, you know, really gut what animated series. Yeah. Animated serious fully understood what Batman was about Batman the animated series. The new ventures superman eventually battling superman that that whole line leading to Justice league and Justice league unlimited even Batman beyond which doesn't really lie. Like, but it still plays into all of that. Completely nailed the character. And Kevin Conroy to me will always be my Batman. But the joker though, six to a strength. I'm so worried about this joker movie. I read I don't know. I read a lot of stupid fan theories on the internet because I hate my job. And I need to spend the time doing something that's not work. And I read one fin theory. I can't credit the the rider because I don't have in front of me. They wanted it to be like what if this peration for the actual joker like the movie edge with this one guy? This one guy's story. And then it kinda like zooms out to the real joker taking his peration from this one guy's life and then more to do to the new young Batman. And I thought maybe I mean, maybe they could do that. But the the prevailing there's two things. I'm worried about one is up front as a fan of like the Batman universe. Not DC. Just Batman Batman villains. The surface level concern. I have is that the best thing about the joker. Is that the joker defies plays with the idea of origin story because the joker does not have one. Yeah. E said so many in his history that it's almost ludicrous depict one in saying that is the story for the joker. Because the the great thing of backstories for the joker for the most part. They're told as frame they're told within frame stories told through the jokers narration or I guess recollection. And it it becomes impossible to nail down because they're purely hypothetical like what of what is true nothing. Like the most important thing about the joker. And it speaks to his ethos is he exists outside of a motivation for his actions. There's no justification for him to do what he does. And even if you look at like the killing joke which tries to portray his origin, something that's like trash. Let's tragic ish. But that is a completely undersold because it's sold as a lie that was made up my thought when I saw I've only seen still images because I don't watch trailers still very anti trailer. So I've seen still images and sort of passing comments about the trailers for Joaquin Phoenix joker movie, which has that's how I were more for two. I will not call it joker, or whatever the movie's called is that it looks like it's going to try to take things from killing joke and make it try to stick Yarmuk seems like a bad idea. I also don't like that it seems to be and this is my deeper concern. My more genuine concern about the way that they're portraying joker. Is that in the times that we live in a seem to be have you ever heard of the movie walking tall not walking down falling down? All right. So that sounds like a movie about a country music singer. So falling down is a movie starring Michael Douglas, and it satire, and the ideas that he's like a middle management type that he incurs too many like micro aggressions from poor people in minorities, and he goes on like action shooting rampage. It's satire it's meant to display. The this person is having a completely Acer metro reaction end is a maniac. Orca of the problem with falling down is that even though it satire people eventually kind of assimilated falling down as part of a narrative because they assumed it was earnest, and they thought this person going on this like this person who had the last straw with all these minorities in his neighborhood. He had act and it's not like a shooting rampage thing the movie's. Okay, but people kind of took that message to heart. Afraid if we're saying with this joker movie that oh this well-meaning comedian is like chewed up by society, and that makes him one of and we can all say this because it's in the cultural consciousness, one of the greatest most murderous villains in history. Yeah. I don't think that's okay. I'm very afraid that they're going to tell the story in an overly sympathetic light. And like lionize this character for being a murderer just because society was mean to him any justification like like in some regards the death of Batman in the DC universe for a while. He was dead because he killed the Jover. And then the attorneys that be the gods of the DC universe rolling. No, the joker. The jokers cosmic force. You were a Kuzmic force in the rule is written as you do not kill the joker killed them. So you are dead. You're gone. We the gods of the DC world. Killing you. Yes. And you know, it seems a little hokey because of course, comics comics are cheesy their cartoonish to the degree, but there's some truth in that. The joker is a cosmic force any Monday or human sort of rationalization for the joker weakens the character. This is the most vile despicable character in literature by definition to give him justification through an Oregon story is to the straw, the character at heart. Yeah. It I think that giving him. I I know they're going to give him a sympathetic backstory. And it's gonna be too simple. You know? Yeah. Li like, oh, it's a man down on his luck. It's gonna take it's gonna take the killing joke's one bad day theme. The thing that joker was trying to do to Commissioner, Gordon, and it's gonna make it quote cannon from a movie perspective. And that it's an oversimplification, and it's going to it will not stand up the time. The reason we talk about movies, not nailing the Batman character. But one of the reasons why the joker is a main stay in culture. And why he's so gripping as villain is because the movies for the most part get the joker. Yeah. Especially the dark Knight joker. Because the thing about the jokers is not. I don't know. I tried to find a way to put this win on. I don't think he's amoral. And I don't think he's immoral. But I think that the joker is extra moral. I think that the more I think that the joker is an ego that exists outside of morality purely for like satisfying its own ends. And if you if you put that against all of batmans other villains, which are top of their class in terms of characterization. They really had a great streak with those in that the characters that really stick around have back stories that tie into there, and like not to shit on anyone who has problems but into their psychosis that manifest in their behaviors that are essential to their deeds and their characters and the joker is the antecedents of that the joker is the absence of morality in tirelessly and to give him a backstory completely on your cells that yeah, it forgot to put the. Joker against Batman. We just talked about how batmans characters one has absolute faith in humanity. Humanity's potential the jokers the complete opposite. Not that. He doesn't believe in humanities potential, but his belief in humanity's potentials, always for the worst. He will always assume the worst of people. Yeah. So that's why in the the riverboat not the riverboat, but the to the ferry boat dilemma and dark. Knight more, there's a prisoner's abode of of civilians and the prisoners that one guy throws the thing out that is person going to reckless against a joker because he's e- soums. The worst of people at all times, he expects both ships to to explode. And the fact that doesn't productions him, and he does he cannot understand it. So it's not amoral. It's not as motivated by assuming the worst out of people of as up. He want people to be as bad as they can be. And that's why Batman is his nemesis because Batman will never do a bad thing. Yeah. Which is why like there's a really weird comic that it's very. It's mixed reviews, but the dark Knight returns is that the the old Batman big Trump. He'll Batman big chunky old, Dan, I think it's grant Morris that seems right bid junkie Obama on. And it's like supposed to stand a sort of the last Batman story and in that story. Batman kills the joker spoilers, but it is kinda slight in the joker wins. Because he finally got Batman to do one band thing. Even his alternate defeat in death. He wins because Batman he keep breaks his one, we'll he breaks his his whole morality code, and it's supposed to be seen as a victory, but you can only interpret it as a loss because if Batman this character will always believed in the best of humanity breaks, his one rule for this one person who wants assume the worst than it's just. It's it's game over UNITA try again load up the the safe. I know that everyone talks about hugger the killing joke is and the end of the killing joke is up to interpretation by with both of them, just laughing. So the strong is strong contingent. The believes that the killing joke ends with Batman Strang, the joker to death because you see them laughing and batmans hands around the joker and then their shadows merge as if he's like taking him into choke of. But I think it's I think that it is in that moment. That they both understand the truth of their existence comes from the same place another shadows merge showing that they came from the same place, basically the same person just like opposites one assumes the worst always assumes the best. Yeah, they're they're two sides of the same coin through the same person. That's what I think the ending of it is I don't think he kills the joker at the end of killing joke. The the animated version of that. I think he he drops your shoulders. So that you can't draw that conclusion oca- there are some problems with the animated version of that like a bat girl in Batman hook up, which was very, oh, yeah. That wasn't in the comic. I don't know. It's not at all in the comic. And like, they reduce bet girls character to like a fantasizing teen, which really hurts the character. Yeah. Especially like in one of her. I'm not gonna say better stories for physical out. Outcome. But one of the more characterizing stories because it set up decades of of work for her. Yeah, he's paralyzed in that and that story so oracle or whatever oracle. Yes. She becomes oracle, which is honestly should probably better Zora than she is as bad girl to a degree at least from a character. Perspective. Not from physiological, perspective flow, better and worse outta. Yeah. It's weird. The what I'm trying to say is I have high Hobo should have different rights as all. No, no. I did this issue mission of this entire segment, which we're gonna call. DC's cre- at our fuck it. I have high hopes for the characters of the Batman universe because those stories are so very near and dear to my heart as they are so dear and near to thousands upon millions of people's hearts, and I hope they took that in consideration. When walking Phoenix walked the WB and said, I wanna make joker a lien. I wanna do not connected to your universe. Walking. I like to call this the most artistically bankrupt company in the world handles the most difficult subject in comic books. Yeah. I bet from a an executive of WB perspective. It's like, oh, yeah. Another comic book movie and Batman, that's popular. Go ahead and do anything you want. Although you gotta make it sunny. It's not even an executive WB goes the joker. I hear. He's twisted. I've seen my nephew where shirt with his face on it. Yeah. Can you make a movie with Vigia in it? Oh, that's a different thing. Cool. I. We hear stories about the creative types bumping up of the executive types. Especially WB case like read everything you can't about the whole production of Justice league. And then just wait to know that the people in power know, so very little about all of the things they touch and any success that they reap is by complete fucking accident. Hey, let me tell you. I went to DisneyWorld area. They know what they're doing with their licenses for the most part. Disney is a different story later. Michael eisner? He's not in there anymore. No what Bob issue I made up of name. Bob, Eichner Eichner shish ner. This is different is is the president of Disney called bub shit. I think he might be might be called shit. President. I made Bob maybe the name of the most of the president of the most monolithic media. They Robert shit. Fans. Fact, check me on that. But I think maybe the president of Disney's name is Bob shit. I won't be aware those family friendly company. Like, oh, did you get Doug bowser? Check this shit out literally Bob shit. That's our president. Fuck you. He's really good. But isn't he is Bob shit? He would have to be really good. Of like up on Eva brings you like the animated frozen to all the shit, all this shit this shit, hit you imagine. Let's just take any job. Can you imagine? How would you'd have to be at any job? Aww shit. Interviewing for a job. Your name is. I do early good work. And I look at my track record. And you know, that I've must've done really good work for Miami divvy, Bob shit like os pronounce sheet. No, the it's it's it's pronounced how you think? It's it's Bob ship. Can I not say that? I am cyst. Me shit. You are not only is this person. That's their name with their insistent and proud of it. Oh, Mr. shit. Call me, Bob, Bob shit. Just so, you know, dating's hard. Was you do me the honor of becoming MRs shit. We're getting into grade school humor. So we must be the dregs of podcast, and we did do to one hour thirty minutes that are ro-. Also, maybe this'll be shorty. This is not gonna be short regard. He'll be normally. That's my goal. It'll be a normal anomaly so deserving. We have to do social media. Let's just wrap up the discussion. I wish all the luck in the world to those fat white assholes in the WB executive position and more luck to the creative people who are actually doing the work in creating the stories portraying them except for Joaquin Phoenix as joker hope that false flat face. Best of luck to all the people have a meet the demands of this uncaring enterprise that desperately desperately wants to Disney. Yep. And Disney owns twenty seven percent of all American cinema. That's a it's not a monopoly. It can't be twenty seven prisoners allowed to exist. So I guess it can't be under this administration. I think any monopoly would be allowed to exist. That's becoming political. And so I'm going to bite my tongue. Yes. But your tongue clean off. I guess we'll do social media. We're supposed to fight over who gets to do it. You did it last time. What game should we invent too? Right. Even odds throughout random number of fingers. Wait that will work who's the we could flip a coin. There is nothing this room to flip. Okay. Here's a hiccup on focused. Bill do dying on the podcast gonna do a toy boat off of that who can say toy boat three times fast who can sit. Jesus christ. You know, what all do social media? That's probably a good idea on hick through. I like. Come plead you've become a drunk from a nineteen twenty s cartoon, right? Right one break Henry story than you can get into your social media plugs. I very bad hiccups anytime. They get the hiccups. They are the worst. They physically hurt me like because of the asthma and other things hiccups hurt. One. I started drinking, and I would get hiccups when I drink migrated fear would be what you just did. And in associate my hiccups with being drunk now. And you can tell him serious. I'm serious. My hiccups are gone. I'm glad I could help you. You know, here's a quick John Doe so ever since I was about twelve years old if I ever get the hiccups, I can force them to stop. I can consciously make my hiccups go away. Not by holding my breath. I can just choose not to hick up. You might say with your uncontrollable hiccuping, and my choice to hiccup that we're actually two sides of the same choline, which you might call. All the real killing joke. Ha ha. We're bracing. We're embracing our shadows, become and view when I get in touch with us on shelter. Shosha media. I'm the it to Joan.

We come up with the rain for sexy. You know that lindsay talks about peleton all the time like oh my god. I'm sorry emily. I'm just doing peleton fabulous class. It was so good. I just saw monk on a balaton right now. The freeway i literally got tony shalhoub to follow me on bella don. I feel like that's going to be a week. Tony shalhoub is following me on on. You're going to be actually know who i saw on peleton. I passed right by daily at no doubt. Had those sort of members i'd be like. Oh yeah i'm all about it. Like i was riding with find alien. Tony shalhoub joined have those kind of members because someone on facebook was saying. Oh my god you guys totally said hi to kyle richards today and my peleton without. Can you tell you know you can give high fives or whatever or something like that. Yes sounds it was something like that. It's like ways you know the marriage thing where it's like. Oh my god that guy you from like three years ago just passed you on the freeway gave you a beep. Yeah that's a great function or something that you're using while you're driving like i could be willing at the road or it could be looking at who's online. And how do i scroll through to beat them. And i've now crashed. Ways users have eighty percent higher fatality rates than non ways users. Let's be honest. Also that lindsay and strategy met on ways in a traffic jam. And i saw this really cute car. I'm maybe maybe today on ways so pentatonic away to summer house. Yeah got it. Do what you do it. Yeah classic classic trixie. I was really upset that i did not hear my favorite trixie jam this week. Which goes i know. I can't remember the rule the roost. Only yeah we play by the rules. We only make them. I don't play by the rules. So good so carl is in a mask on his computer. Why i dunno. Benny as he goes. Well well no not a mass maske's in like a full facial mask that makes more sense just so y'all know official mosque because i've been quarantining and luckily my room has balkany. And i got my computer and some self care carlton girl. I look all the way. Yeah i was thinking we have. We have a mutual friend on facebook. I will not say his name. But he's always posting kind of sexy pictures in his apartment wearing a mask. I'm like why are you wearing a baskin in your studio apartment while you're taking instagram picture. I'm not getting. It is part of the part of the lure is like fetish porn. Where you're wearing masks. Like i don't know whether they are people turned on by that now. I don't know what it is. I didn't know you were facebook. Friends with tony shalhoub. Also i met daily. Is doing that too. Yeah they usually lead to do a face mask after peleton so then Danielle is like trying hard you. Because she's danielle she's dressing one of those Statue dog things. She's like or you fancy motherfucker. Guys right stahl hilarious. I i have to say something happened to me this week where i've decided i love danielle. I don't know where it came from. It was when kyle on instagram. For international women's day he posted a photo of the entire cast and everyone in the cast was like is there some of the women that deserved get me through life and he posted tagged everyone except for danielle and she like she wrote like hi. I'm year and i was like you know what that sucks she gets she gets. She is the one that gets forgotten about state. She's the one that they forget to tag. She's the one who just sort of like. On the periphery of this show and always feels. Like she's on the periphery and like she was like fire. She came back. And i feel like she just sort of like show on and why she is like. She's like very accomplished. She has she's like she has a job. She seems very smart. She's beautiful she's great. She's great i decided. I'd love daniel mckay. Well you know what you're entitled Yeah i don't hate her. And like i don't have hatred for her. I've just you know it's like why do something addressing vidal you brought on five. The most potential out of everyone on this cast and like do rely on joe real life potential but this is like reality. Tv you know. Yeah well. I'm in reverse course perhaps by the end of the episode. Who knows. what's so luke's making your ringnes going wall. Yeah you'd better goal ring or whatever. And then kyle is doing business on the phone. He's like yeah. I want to challenge. You know what our is once. The product lands. It sells out like we're just to popular you know. I'm the more heart disease since we're expanded to canada funny. Yeah yeah down and then sierras just like waking up. And she's like where's the sun other. It is okay. Cool and and she tells us about how like working working in icu. Just stress and alarms and being all day long which is why she is really embracing doing nothing to summer. And she just needs the downtime and she's only just now stopped hearing alarms in her head so she just thinking about food and that's it and then danielle lost rifi. So there's story actually we get to meet danielle's boyfriend this week. He's cleaning his apartment and daniels like you know workers announcing some changes. That might make me busier. And he's like yes. Less time. With me i get it yeah She's like not sure how she she. She really likes this guy robert. She didn't try to have sex with them when they first met because she knew that there was something more with him than just a body you know. And she's not sure how she's gonna juggle a relationship and a career. But she wants to share her weirdness with someone else He's adorable by the way yes. Sky is so cute as good for you and then there's a knock at the door page. Can't find a mask so she just put she just toilet papers her head. She's like that's it. And it's more flowers linzie. Stephen like what is she trying to teach you here. It's not just to keep sending her lame apology flowers. Okay you haven't been married forty years desist. The it's a helicopter and nothing. Okay you need to do like. I remember from miss saigon or just get off the if you're not dropping a chandelier in this summer house you're not really putting in the effort. Yes so lens. Like god aram's even and pages like Who did we think. From of course from steven And she reads the card Latency miami timing may not be used only all that i get out long. What do i do now. Oh my god our matic. Like she's thrilled. To get the fire. I love your lindsay impersonation sounds like going down a slide at action park. I love that like just gone down and got up a little bit and lamar elevator. Then i broke my arm. Yeah and she's like you know. Stephen is not so easy to walk away. he didn't she and he didn't do anything terribly wrong about any not. Give me what i mean. Really you know what. I need relationship. I need someone who has like really been through shit. Oh yeah hello there lady. I've been i. I've been through the real stuff. I went to a private school and it was suffering. Then i'll work in new york city that read there. Yeah one time. And i knew a guy that had a private plane and he let me ride on that private thing and i was dating a girl at a private plane and then i got off that private plane and realized i don't have a private plane lindsay if we had an anniversary again. You know what i'd get you. I wouldn't get fish sticks. I'd get you mozzarella sticks onion rings with all the fixings. Yeah i wanna see that. I love you. Oh so then we go to kyle. And he's like. I'm not feeling very clear today. The guy he's talking to business he's keep business with the sky it goes. I wish i was there to give you a hug. Hey i appreciate you filling in for carl. Not how he does. It goes like this could give you a hug bro. Yeah you do for have cancer. Not so can. I was like i'm gonna go find hannah because like you know and you've let things go and i don't know why i'm still clinging to my issues like this but they just can't. I'm just so upset. She won't and it's kind no link to signing what battles are worth finding kind lane love you all. She hugs him and sent him off to school. Yeah meanwhile lucas in the kitchen and lindsay walks by own hubs every like that fish. 'cause thank you yes. Dope is wearing assert that says s. u. m. e. r. but it's written out like mothers against drunk driving like it's like like dare okay. Could you imagine if his mocking mad could you imagine yaw mothers against drunk driving. But that's what i thought it was. I mean there. Isn't that much better but let bought it was. It was like bam carl. You really go in there today. Carl has like the most innocent shirts except days. Like you know what you know who. I'm gonna fuck with women who've lost their children to drunk driving all right going. Hey t shirts. It sort of makes fun of amnesty international. All i'm nasty international. I brought up so cao cao mocks on hannah's door and he goes into their room and they're just both in bed on their phones like they always and he's like wow Can't really tell what time of the day is down here. Yeah we love it and in case. You're wondering i'm not wearing a set right now. So so kyle. Basically like i can we have. We're going to go outside breath of fresh air. So they go out there. And hannah's wearing just a slight update he's just like he's going to suffocate in their bedroom. He's like you need some fresh air at outright. I feel like it's not authentically a bedroom because when he goes in the doors like glass. I'm like was this. Originally the house is jim and they turned it into a bedroom. 'cause that did not feel like a bedroom environment so that was my day so then they said they go outside and caused so the other day caught me by surprise and of course i'm referring to the fact that we're out cans no cans in america right now. Lear really man. No cans is like. I don't know if you mean everything you say about. You say stuff that hurts people's feelings and she's like all the hurt your feelings because all whatever criticism like you bring up stuff to deflect like my prior actions of my relationship okay. Yeah so which is by the way. It's kind of funny that your prior actions like hurt your feelings. So kyle's like he's like a man and i are good and i'm wondering when will you accept that and she's like well. It's not about your relationship. It's speaks of women. Because well i'm not speaking to women speaking to someone who respects me and i don't care if you're a man or a woman or someone dressed in a very strange pink sweatsuit right now. Why are you wearing that thing. Because the girls are upstairs watching from the balcony and or like from a window in the kitchen. And oh my god. Hanna is wearing her finest pink sweatsuit forbath. They can't with this. One page went upstairs and was like. Oh my god. I it came up here to do the same thing as you guys. Because they're all watching So he's like well you know for starters like based on what you continue to say. I questioned what you think about our relationship here. I think i want you both to be happy. And it's not like a walking around the house saying bad things about your relationship kyle. I'm constantly bring up the bass like you know what she says in your head. That's in your head car so now she's going to gaslight him i mean. She has a bad things about their relationship. I do love watching get fleming thing so believe it or not. I actually really like a lot. And so watch him get flooded. Cana very entertaining to me. So so he's like. I generally thought that we had a friendship. And i'm like practically shaking right now. Because i don't have fallouts with friends and i don't out of cans. Okay it's a lot. It's a lot and she says you're not my friend though is oh so is the rest of the summer ruined because like i feel like if there's someone in this house that doesn't consider me a friend and then she starts crying. She's like she comes in and out of tears like a two year olds. You know. that's not really what she wants to gave me your being your friend and have animosity towards me and i really like doing with you and just become anger. Vastra way less animosity to george you. Then you think mass level a a lot but it's not quite as much as you'd think and so yes she's like you're always trying to like you're always you'll be showed you the thing we're talking about. I don't like people yelling at me a time yet. No okay. i'll wait a little bit. So he's like well. Why do you think that this is a personal attack and like you have to be on the defensive. No law i mean. I haven't even said anything mean who. You're not even a friend to me. According to you. So why would you wanna come. But i wasn't invited me. I'll like well if you some of fiance. You really think they're coming to the wedding. Yes do you know how. Many fiance's i've hated the my friends get married still. Go drink that free booze and that right away from me. Kyle i mean. Do you want to register for gifts or not. You gotta get people in those seats. The hannah's leg she's like. I'm drawing my best as going back to nonsense of us sitting there like that here comes here comes. You're like by todd all wrong. I've on nothing you got me light. China's tunas straw. Here's what's so funny to me because her tears. It's like it's not working. He still yelling back at her and her tears instantly gone. It's like oh yeah now. You're just being my dad telling me all these things i've done wrong and mike you've done nothing wrong and amanda hi countless and then kyle says oh. I feel like a scapegoat. I mean come on. You're putting me in the same sentences your dad so just decides to switch. She goes and you see it on her face the see or talk her way into a realization that she can take a different angle in this arguments. This girl has watched a lot of housewives because this is basic she she basically pulls a jude ice right she pulls a drink so she's you're not a scapegoat and you do not have to come after my family. The fake tears come again and she goes you lose the family and that was my favorite. She just had an angle she goes. You don't have to talk about my family actually like a second. This is pretty cool. Let's go with this actually folk. You don't talk about my family again. Even though it was hanno who brought that up and he just reference what she just said also see like storms inside yelling so everyone can hear her yelling the east coming for her family which makes no sense right. She slams the door and like pretends to cry and carlos just watching from the window cracking up so inside paid and danielle course. Can we just get along so then. Hannah is crying to sierra it. She's like don. It's like you literally brought up your planner. Early brought up your family. You literally brought it up and he said you just you're just compared like he basically said you just compared to your childhood trauma with your dad. Let's basically what he said. Don't talk about by that. I mean it was ridiculous hilarious. Do i was cracking up cracking up so areas like well. What's going on. And she's this summer when attacked by a little blood. Lepuc really the same weekends as patrick's day really so then. Then kyle goes over to amanda. Amanda gives him one of her panted. Slow hugs where he stands in front of her and then for five seconds. She's slowly closes her arms around his neck. Kyle hold on. Don't go anywhere the hug. We're closing the hug for. We're locked marine gate okay. Now we're we're clasped. The hug started will some people in this house. They went drama. But guess what. I just two song on a porsche. That regular world country star kane here sleek back all my god all got. It forgot the lyrics to my one song man. Okay here's thing mink hot dish gotta work. How does hat dish rain with. Slicked-back gotta get better. I think i remember now. Soothing tie hair slicked back game of kube going. no don't remember. That was matt. Ryan got kube. Was it no no so crowds. Like ooh was like a mad. I wanted us to work it out. Say there's any down amounting. Kyle i'm on yours. I can really go for another slow hug. You've got twenty seconds here. We go so then now. Hannah's with page you cross. Oh and if he's going to bring up my if like i'm i but how do you hear what you're saying is being ridiculous even the pages like i don't get how the bad thing came into play. And then we got soom debravo up on her like like the salad like the sound editors. Even i'm going to weigh in on this so hannah's like actually i brought it up because i sent. He was acting like my dad. And then he got all smug about it and said like a dope. Bring me in your data up in the same sentence and i was like dude. Then we go more into the psychological depths of this issue growing up playing tennis. I had to win to get my love and eighty. And i just feel like i'm not good enough for men and when you get aggressive with me i have no tolerance little girl me just wants to run away and it's all for my dad's love hannah. Don't you realize tennis if you wanted love. You just never had to score a point little little joke. That was shown what france fight. And it's just knowing that the person is genuinely there for you care about you and can eventually find cans you know. That's the important thing. You even wanna reconcile we all ruining the it's a lot so look i'm a capricorn. I gotta i can hold grudges. And i just want you to be free of this. So do you think you're going to be able to let this go. Also you're sitting on my laundry pile. So did you get off that. So yeah it goes up to be the bigger person and move on and so page gives her a hug and she's like i love you no matter what happens and it was like at then. Hannah goes and hugs sierra. Which i thought was funny because you're just sitting there not asking a hug she's like oh i guess i guess we'll hog to minya sexy the will smile Hold on to say sexy sexy smart sexy little smile and then sexy but the eh playing hard play in hockey.

Since his brother's funeral he wanted a lie in bed. Not even get up but the work has been a really healthy distraction for him instead of resorting to alcohol. That's great and now the even better news is that he is out of warranty and he's like i'm back negative. Be look at by the way. So lucan hanner out by the pool. He's a key anna. Look at this.

We were in a bad cycle like literally. He was driving my pal numbers down. I like this is bad cycling. You have to leave and the doctor says well. The cycle is other things. You're looking to block and you're blocking that intimacy by going back into the cycles. Okay because it's a negative action cycle that's fighting and conflicts never get resolved and that's really not the way to operate if you don't wanna die alone you are thirty four after all and your skins actually peeling off.

I put some pillows on the apple create and got me a little higher more comfortable and the time that i put those boxes together and i spent the entire meeting together gonna fall over great times. Well i know you're trying but i don't see anything changing. So she dumps him and he's like okay.

So we've we've we've observed before that she has a very messy bed which is within her right. She lives stressful life. She's allowed to have a messy bed. But here's what really got me this week about her messy bed. When she woke up her mac book was on her bed and it was. It was at the edge of the bed in the corner by her feet. I was like you went to sleep with a mac book on the edge lear bed. You are trying me. Do stressful image for me to look at so amanda is like. I'm working on a post for instagram. It's a national dog names. I'm doing like a slide of dogs with loverboy. Moses mean we need a dog. Amanda 'cause i just like love children and i can't wait to have a little cookie crumbs. Whoa what is this. A lengthy conversation. How did we get that far. Yeah by the way from instagram instagram. Good dog drinking a beer too. Hard t to having babies. Yeah also i just wanna put it out there. I totally support people having babies and having families and i think that's a i think that's wonderful. It's the generations the evolution not as generations. Go on and you know. That's part of the life cycle not on some house though. If you have a baby sorry no longer a cast member for me. We have to find replacements. I am not having babies on summer house. i will not allow it. Yeah so he's like everything's happening. So fast i mean are you. Are you ready when you think you're going to be ready to like. I'm running off birth control. Now he's like. Oh my god. Like i was thinking to servers would be better. You know i mean. We'll be putting lindsey in the home guy so much coming up this year. I mean we're really developing that jared tall flavor for loverboy specifically for lindsay holding me. That already so he's like he's like. Yeah just as many responsibilities and coming our kyle take care of you and you like goes up to her goes starts like pretending to cycle on it. Goes mama much literally. All i complain about is how much she infanta fantasizes kyle. And then he's literally sucking her nipples so funny. It's really weird kyle. Not when there's cameras here so then we cut the page. And she's on her and she goes god. We have so much front page news today so we got past okay. Let's get started so hannah comes out. She's like i how to tell you something. I talked to on instagram. I swear to god. I didn't tell her anything. I had a message on my phone. As she said lizzy fucked. Kyle who luke. Sorry and i even have luke written down on otherwise I love gossipy psychic. Like none of her damn business and she's not even getting paid just exeter her client random gossip. Yeah i'm gonna say. I would not be surprised. If like a sketchy producer was like hey You should texas hansie was yes so she was like are opened up. I thought it would be something about does and how much my nipple turns them on But guess what it's like the psychic. She says they've done it before and there aren't they aren't loyal organize. And that's and. That's why. I don't like luke for you. He's not good enough for you. I'm like this is a messy. This is a messy messy messy psychic. liana that. I'm really buying this either. But it is hilarious and page goes well. I didn't the psychic to tell me that they like each other. They look at each other in different way. I mean i don't look at my friends like that. You know their babies would be gorgeous though if they can have them before lindsay expires with. Yeah it was a week ago. I mean what lindsay is basically milk with cheese in it. But you know what if they can make those eggs float go. Go go basically that yogurt in the back of the fridge. That you've forgotten about luke. Luke and lindsay look at each other in a way that like fringe look each other like. It's like grandmother to grandson. So then we see a montage them like flirting. and everything. and hannah's like lucas made clear. He's not a trustworthy guy. But i came to this house this summer. Not trusting lindsay and. She's hot it out for me since this winter and pages like this also means that she cheated on stephen good friend. Of course that's why they haven't told anyone out mine like this is this is like so far from like actual actual actual gossip dare does running with it. I was like oh be a problem because you heard it from an instagram psychic. Blow produce are so then lindsay is like i'm elaine kitchen making tacos and anyone born out so page goes and she's like i guess i didn't need to do all this cheese did i. Why do people that page around cheese pages. The goddamn disaster around cheese. She's flying all over the place she drops it. Don't let cheese. I also love lindsay's pass aggressive taco making. She's like you know. I'm gonna do i'm gonna make tacos and i'm gonna now making the tacos and i'm gonna give everyone for not helping me even though as my decision to do this and i saw myself it's like you don't get the house. 'cause you decide to make tacos like this is your choice. Yeah so they all decide to get with it wasted tonight after dinner and pages like i'm not hungry but all set the table so zero. It's like oh my gosh. You guys are talented as hell than we look at what they made. And it's like store bought taco taco shells and cheese and sour cream out on a play and then some ground beef and and page like carl. Carl i love this outfit. He'll thank you. Do we feel like we must have missed it in the notes because my favorite part of the entire episode was when it must have been when there were listening in on hannah and kyle talking and goes to amanda and sierra. She goes in case. You're wondering this isn't a set that i'm wearing. I think myself. Guess you're wondering. I don't know maybe it's still about to come but i thought it had already happened by now i was like i can't wait to make a running joke about this all episode longer. It'll happen so they're all complementing the food and handed tell cindy oh yes suddenly. You're good at making sandwiches. Who so sierra tells are welcome to the single girls club. Lindsey air honey more and i'm thirty four A welcome as a welcome beach. Okay stake sorry next. Time also wants to the geriatric singles club lindsay Look as here for the heavy metal room and it's luke and Like what's wrong luke. And he's really crappy today guys. He's tired okay. he's a who did the cooking though. Say thank you. Thank you lindsey. While whether lovely meal. Thank you so so much. Wow so oh so. You made a tomato pie.

Then you eat it like a suit and tie you know what i just. Don't have it midday guys. I'll be on the porch. I'll be sad out there if anyone wants to comfort him in a motto. That's where i'll be so so. They basically the plant is the the guys are going to have all the big boys. Not y'all we're gonna play ball and the girls are doing Spot night like girls night and spun and all that nice stuff and then states split up to start doing their activities. And danielle's like walking around in negligee. I feel so exposed. I didn't realize it was not this kind of girls night. So lindsey comes out to luch while he's like texting ioana name your quesnel. We're so quiet and you didn't seem like an old and tannin patriot jumping around and hannah's telling amanda we have to tell you something we have to okay so you're going to have remember remember. I got a message from things. Graham psychic she said luth ability and then we go back to look and he's like you know. I'm just like annoyed with a lot of people you know not you. Because you give me butterscotch is. That's nice but i'm like annoyed. And no i don't want you to think you're annoying this. Listen up your food for you before he eats you. Don't show is actually kinda comforting case. So it's not you. Yeah you know. And honestly i think it's really nice when those trick or treaters game. You're yelled at them and then leave them apple slices. I'd love to keep people off our law. That's actually a good thing that you do or hey. Can i borrow that baseball that you stole from the little kid who des member that name you swim that pool and then you came out and you acted like you were twelve years old for about ten minutes. That was so funny. You know what my favorite thing is that you do. Linzie of various low breastroke in the pool. That's so wonderful. And you don't put your head underwater rather aerobics. Now that's hot an f. Only it can come up with the rain for water. Aerobics tamale got it hold on. Add right that doubt. you know. i'm just really annoyed with a lot of people. Like sierra like he she gives me so much attitude and like you know they. I like her and she doesn't like me back. So why is she being mean to me. It's almost like she doesn't want me to hit on her. I don't get it and lindsay's like online. Why don't you know there are a lot of you and when you are going to grow up to me and i mean 'boy oh yeah no. I know who those people are. So then back to the girls amandas like Got feeling a lot of reason to think that that's true lane guys. You weren't told information that you need again to the bomb Yeah and here's more information for you. What i'm wearing right now out of set. Yeah pick this out myself. It looks like it's at welcome. I like that everybody's like oh yes true. Because they'd have hot children. Yeah i don't see this being a disaster at all them. I don't either being a psychic from instagram. Just just saying some shit off the top of her head and treating it like it's actual facts and running with it in a house that had been trapped in with barely stove working for a few weeks with a lady who just got who just ended a relationship and it's vulnerable. I think it will probably over pretty. Well it's gonna go. Great is going to go great guys so we'll see next week the previews for next week. Look whole aureus so good.

Thir13en Ghosts

"Oh good. How's everybody Welcome to the under-eating podcast this podcast where we discuss the films that we feel are underrated or perhaps underappreciated even ones have slipped under the radar and passed most people buy this is a show of a collaboration of friends and together. We are the undercast company today. We're going to be talking about a movie called Thirteen Ghosts 2001 supernatural horror movie directed by Steve Beck starring monk himself, Tony Shalhoub and Shaggy himself Matthew Lillard. This movie is actually a real make of a movie that originally came out in nineteen sixty, but while that one was a bit more camping with ghosts skeletons and a good dead Uncle Bob. This Vision literally takes it and flips it a bit and adds a lot of Gore by having a bad uncle and takes the tone more in tune with loads previous song Thriller scream. This movie currently has a pretty rotten score of 13% on Rotten Tomatoes. And yeah, we'll get into that often IMDb 5.6. So definitely not marking the same audience Acclaim as screened in the scream series do but I would like to get your guys's opinion. Like I said before we are the under cast company. My name is Ariel. Jr. Okay. And Alan I'm going to guys. I'm doing great. And we just wanted to just start off the podcast with noticing somebody who's missing. So Alan you could address that. I want to just elephant in the room real quick guys. So unfortunately do with what's going on in the world right now, but nothing bad happened. Everything's fine first. You're really understand. Yeah. Yeah. I know what you meant. No Richard C scandals or anything like that. So often just because the way everything's going on right now in the world. It's kind of tough to make time, you know, everybody's kind of worrying about their family and work and everything like that. So Fred has unfortunately departed from The Office cast time schedule. So good is it's not it's not one of the Thirteen Ghosts. Yeah. Definitely. One of the Thirteen Ghosts is doing fine. He's just making time. And for his family, which is fully understandable and we're hoping maybe after everything's all over with everything's all nice and settled you can come back. But yeah, just wanted to give you guys that update real quick. Just so here's what I'm like well what's going on is not showing up in the later podcast. But yeah, just cuz he's my cousin. I want to let you guys know but everything's fine. Everything's going great with them. He's just making time for his family. So yeah, I'm not not the rest of us do we're all just like, you know, such a fucking crazy kids out here on like crazy like a real big family his wife and everything like that. But yeah, I need depth and we'll still have an influence on probably suggesting movies to us and and letting us know and things like that and and but he's he's still here but not here just in and go ahead. Okay, so guys do you mind if I start this one just because it's like hey wiretap. Yes, but this movie is basically a Twist on you could say like a haunted house kind of story it it starts off with this subject millionaire. Basically hunting goes with his psychic kind of like I don't want to say sidekick, but because it's kind of a reluctant. He's basically a psychic for a higher wage and in the form of Matthew Lillard's character and he gets killed. Assumably and yeah, yeah, sorry uncle gets killed as played by the grape F Murray Abraham. I recognize him I said it was oh yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yeah. He's from The Mummy. But yeah, so he took and then Fraser one. Yeah, the Brendan Fraser one. He he leaves his house his very eccentric house Glass House attached to his nephew and his family and his nephew had just lost his wife in a fire of the previous house and they're basically a kind of like in a hard place. So this kind of become it seems like it's like God sent to them and they move into the or they visit the house. I want to say one night and basically things kick off and goes get release that are in the basement from the uncle collecting all these things for demonic reasons, and I don't want to give too much away. But yeah, Matthew Lillard comes and tries to help them as as the psychic that he is and and and so for me this I this was actually the only wage scary movie that I liked as a kid. I still enjoy it like even watching it. I know it's cheesy. But hey for the early 2000 movie. It just did two very really bad music choices suck then like mean it's that's impressive for early 2000 movie. But yeah, I I still enjoyed it today when I when I watch Disney and yeah, it's a bit on the cheesy side, but I find that the the idea of basically these different styles of a monster wage ghosts that that have become part of the culture of ghost history. You could say are kind of like played on and and it's it lays out their life lore that that is in my opinion very original even looking at the synopsis of The original movie which is very like is a very kind of sounds like it very sixties movie. Very simple ghost story. It kind of like it just adds this very interesting and and I still haven't seen something like this like of a cult mixed in with ghosts and and then Matthew off his character I really liked and I'm sad by what happens to him. But yeah, that's that's my opinion on this and that's why I chose this movie package. Oh, yeah. Happy Halloween guys seem to be logo for this episode. We picked spooky movie. Yeah. That's why yeah the last year it was Fred's and and Allen's choice because they're the horror guys suck. I thought in the second year we kind of we kind of mixed up our movies without thinking but as of As Above So Below was Derek's choice of scary movie. But no it was Allen Choi really but hey, it's like it was like jeans before October. So yeah, this is this is Nick Halloweeny though, then that yeah, this is more like ghosts and Ghouls and Spooks wage type of deaths right behind you and like and like so expands like Chinese there. He will get into that. But I like I really like Matthew Lillard still to this day, but God yeah, is that some but Yeah, so probably next year will be Derek and and juniors choice will have to make sure and do it right and get those those movies with them and it more better. Of a figure out a good movie Just well, you have a year. That's true. All right. I have a year. I'll come back to you guys in a year ya old over no pressure. No pressure for now. But this movie though. It's this. This is your pic right for under a pic. So do you know anything else about how this movie did that makes you think it's under eight or just cuz it's under the radar cross. I've never heard of this before. Yeah, it's more about like a month. It was in this realm of like kind of a Resurgence of of the horror Thriller, you know coming off of scream and the popularity of that. So it's kind of playing off of that kind of genre and it's kind of like further develop and still exists this kind of like like kind of like, I don't want to say poppy. Well, that's a bit poppy of a horror movie. Yeah. Yeah, like, you know now nowadays we have like happy happy death day would be a similar string into that Faith. So I think because of the kind of like the saturation of this genre back then it might have it kind of got pushed under the radar and then kind of dog it see great critical Acclaim because probably because of that of the saturation, but for me, it does like I said, like it holds a special place in my heart because It was like the first scary movie that I actually wanted to watch. Like I'm I was I still am kind of a scaredy-cat but back then I was really really a scary cat games for some reason like this Grissom this move filled with gruesome, like kind of like ghosts. Like I was okay with well, it's not that scary. That'd be like that. Yeah that maybe white but it was Grease job get to that to about it. But whoever wants to go Junior Derek more than one set it up. I was actually really interested in hearing your opinion Alan because you're the boss know a lot more of this job are better than anyone else than I was I was watching. I was like, of course this isn't too scary. It's more about I guess the story and the characters the visuals. And just overall if everything flows and goes correct or not. So I was just interested in hearing what you had to say. Picture of the first yeah, it's not scary. It's definitely not an amazing definitely not like, you know of amazing, you know. Oh my God, you gotta write home about a horror movie, but it's definitely fun. And I've always been a fan of it. And so when it came out, I think I think I saw it on DVD when I came out cuz that's when I was like getting into horror was like I was like eleven years old and I was like really just eating it all up but it's definitely a popcorn horror flick. It's it's more like they go for like the Thrills and like the humor life. It's just a lot of fun like it's especially it was kind of nice to watch it because right now, you know, we have haunting a blind manner. I just finished that and then we have the haunting at Hill House Crimson Peak. A lot of haunted house stories are always like Gothic and they're very like either they have like romance and they or the ghosts or more affecting the way that people are stuff like that. So watching this again was a log On cuz sometimes I just like a good puppy fun Haunted House movie where like like it definitely feels like you're in a funhouse like especially like a like a yeah with the golden Choice else. Yeah. I mean with the glass ceiling to that's that's that's what I was going to say. It feels like like a not a maze or more like an escape room game sure so and it definitely helped out to you because right now with everything is going on. We can't really go to Halloween haunts or Halloween Horror Nights and all that stuff, which I'm really really sad about but this dog kind of filled it in a little cuz the set design is fucking stunning. Like they just went all out and I feel like this might have been I think there were maybe trying to go for like a franchise they were trying to remake it and trying to make it this big like because the budget had to be huge. I don't know. Do you know how much the budget was by chance? I think it actually it was 64 e Okay, 42 million and it did make I think I read that it did make its money back yet made 68 million worldwide which is not good on that budget that it probably going to make some money back once you factor in marketing and stuff, but nonetheless, I mean they spend a lot of money on it. Like you can tell even the CG with the the whole gearshift of them around the end of the film like for 2001. The effects are pretty well done where I was like pretty impressive like we watching it. I was like, holy should that's pretty good and there's some horror films that have come out in this decade with a C G is like not not too great. But you know the acting everybody's pretty campy, you know all the characters, you know, I love Matthew Lillard and I'm not going to life really when I finished. The film was like I need to go watch screen because scream is My top my top three one of my favorite horror films of all time. And you know Matthew Lillard's performance in that film is as God is just amazing. But yeah. Yeah. Yeah, so he didn't know that that was Matthew Lillard Shaggy or Shaggy recognize this witty Miss and like ghosts boggles. Yeah, but then like she got me thinking that like just to go off on a little tangent but related tangent Matthew Lillard like for the most part, I think he's he's like kind of like said this like to get like an interview I've seen like he's kind of like a world course of like a actor like like he was like we were kind of like getting impressed by how like because I help grinning like, I was like man, this dude is giving it is Ali students. Like actually he's going for and you're like a Shaggy. I was like a cheggy really? I I texted you when I was watching it was like is that fucking Shaggy? Yeah, he's a freaking you need to get that Oscar something an actor. Like I just that's what I was kept saying like this guy is an actor. Yeah life. He's great in like the Twin Peaks Revival, which I'm not a huge fan of that Revival in general, but like he's really good in it. Yeah, yeah, so it's just it's just like that his performance like was definitely like the best in the movie for me for me. I don't know about you guys Ellen. Oh, he's dead. Yeah, I'm great in it. He was probably the best part of the film because like everyone like was pretty campy and everybody was kind of like like I felt like the director was like to just have fun with it. Don't don't worry about it like wage and imagine what it was like not fact that I was to scream. I gotta I gotta kill it. So yeah, I mean the set design again like I've just every time I watch this film I kind of go down to like how long did it take to build the set like like the only thing I didn't like was I wish they would show like a like an aerial shot of the the glass house cuz you always see it from the bottom up. So you can't really feel the scale of how big it is and just feels like it might just be like right in front of you and that's it. It's kind of like when you go to England or a theme park and like you should see like they're they're trying to cover the outside. I think of course perspective. Yeah the first perspective and like you're kind of like I want to see what's behind Star Wars land or I want to see what's going down. So like that's the only the only gripe with a with the perspective of it, but it's it's a lot of fun. I mean especially right now, it's October but like, like I said, we've finished having a blind Manner and I was like that was great choice kind of kind of very serious kind of not it's not too scary. But I was like man, I want to watch like a fun house like Haunted House movie and Ontario brought it up was like fuck. Yeah dude. It's it's again. I'm not like anything to write home about but it's just a great fun horror flick to throw on and and it is pretty underrated. I'm always surprised people don't really bring it up. I think maybe because of like, it didn't do well back then or dead. It's critical consensus, but definitely a fun flick. It's just a popcorn flick, you know, you're just you're not there is a couple of jump-scares but it's like it's like God, I don't know. You just have a good time with your not like like it's not like hereditary or Midsummer where you're like, holy shit like you're like walking out of it. Like, oh man. I need to like get some cotton candy or some shit off to feel better. But I want to go like I personally have never seen like a funhouse horror movie like this ever after this, you know, like I I don't nothing comes to mind at least my mind and then it just it just reminded me while I never owned the TV set. I know that the TV set off like actually like they had the lure on each Coast so they put like Derek just like Allen said they put a lot of work into this movie behind-the-scenes job. I do remember like yeah that that hearing about the DVD. One of the bonus features was basically a. C and all these all these twelve ghosts essentially in like a different like yeah their backstories how they became this, you know, the Jackal and all that. So yeah, Derek, Yeah, so like you guys know that like whenever like we do the like my big thing is but I like every movie is somebody's favorite movie, you know, and that's why I love doing the show me that being like, okay, we're going to like these movies are underrated like like the critics or might not like them. They might not have done without. Well a lot of people might not like, um, but somebody out there fucking loves this movie and I and I love that and so I always try to be really positive about movies. And so in that vein, I do want to say a couple of positive things real quick because like you I agree with like all that stuff you were saying like there is some really cool interesting stuff. And I think that the lure is really cool like this idea of there being like Thirteen Ghosts and like, you know, they're all like kind of different they were tortured and stuff like that and that's why the school song most of us don't bother it but there's ones that are really fucked-up. I especially loved that house. That was such a cool like interesting like visually like the house visually like it's kind of like futures Sick and kind of Steampunk and it's got all this glass and there was this weird language and like it was it Latin know. That's what I thought is that Latin I've seen written. It's like I don't know some weird. Okay, and what's going on with that Comic Sans Latin? Yeah, like unless you exactly what it was windy flattened is like you like you can write Latin with fucking like, you know, the length of the alphabet we use for English, but like that was not that that was something else but it looked cool. It was really interesting. Like Alan said I would have loved to have gone to that escape room. Like that would have been like if there's all the it looked so unlike anything you've seen you'd have to like figure out clues about like there's all these different ghosts and if you end at at I want to thank you so much into Escape rooms. I wouldn't be surprised if like now you go and log Escape room know like actually that's something me and my friends have talked about like obviously like you got around thrown in that but yeah some really good stuff in this movie, but I I just it wasn't for me. I it was the most early 2000s thing I've ever seen in my entire life. Like I think it's like one of those things like in there like he had to remind you. He had two of like experiences in that day. You know, like this is your first it was like, yeah, it was like like the cuts it would do where we like the strobe and like like it was like I was literally waiting for a Limp Biscuit to show up on the soundtrack. I thought it was so awful fucking at least two thousand and like I know I know this is all out of nostalgia. I know like I I know I know like the birth Mm. No, yeah, but like the way was cut like the way like the ghost showed up like the like and like the Lord was really cool. And I would love love to have had like that life interestingly doled out in the movie. But instead you don't get like half way through the movie just like okay, there's ghosts and whatever and then just like half way through the movie like this lady just sits you down. She's like, all right. So there's Thirteen Ghosts this this is a list of Ivory Coast and this is how long I'm just like, okay cool. They say that list twice. Yeah, and also the most early 2000s cast you will ever see in a movie. All right. You got Tony Shalhoub, of course, like who you know, he was like off of like Galaxy Quest. You've got Matthew Lillard who already talked about you've got fucking Shannon Elizabeth hot off the American Pie movies. You've then you've got like, okay, let's put a rapper in there because every early 2000 like horror movie has to have a rapper in it. And then of course very early 2000s like kind of like boy like dog I F Murray Abraham who was obviously like I said in the mummy just everything about this movie screams. Yeah. This was made in the year two thousand and one like it was it was so of it's just I'm like, I don't know if I've ever seen a movie that more encapsulated the time it was made the Halloween Halloween Halloween resurrection off. The Halloween resurrection is totally a early 2000s movie where it's just it has a rapper I when I was like all these unknowns long is that H to know the amount of nineteen ninety-eight but no Hollywood Resurrection is the one with Busta Rhymes and they they kind of actually did the same thing. Yeah, cuz it still has ice cube in it. So that's why I was confused and has Jamie Lee Curtis know they did the found-footage thing Josh Harkness first movie. I want to say really yeah. Yep. It has to Jamie Lee Curtis like like there's a Halloween movie without like this guy's is Halloween movie is Jamie Lee Curtis Halloween for Halloween a problem. Yeah, right true. I don't know. I know this is Halloween. Yeah, but like watch Halloween resurrection, if you're like, you know what I need a couple just a tattoo thing just watched Thirteen Ghosts and Halloween resurrection and you'll have your your perfect time capsule of you'll be recorded back to another time of two thousand and one two thousand and three phones off like a haunted house itself. It's like, oh it was it felt like very like, oh it's a haunted house in the year and it's like it's like it's not going to be like an old haunted house from the sixties. It's going to be new and crazy. It's going to have all this technology in the end. Like like I like the aesthetic of it, but it was also just like this is it felt like like what do people in the year two thousand and one think houses will look like in the year 2018 It's crazy, you know like so it was it was just like and you know, like I said, it wasn't scary and it wasn't like I like horror movies that are very suspenseful and like I feel like like any of the characters were interesting like there's this pencil and there was stuff also like this is have you seen this bathroom. It's amazing. Like looks like my grandma's bathroom. Why are you doing your hair for little 20 minutes? Just like I don't I just it didn't do it for me. Yeah. I don't know that's that's my two cents like and I don't like the show on movies, especially on this podcast unless I took like unless the movie I feel like is like, you know taking something away from Cinema which obviously this isn't it just showed up and disappeared and director made one other movie which was Ghost Ship, which is I think another page all I know is the owner of the boat and the boat has a that's all I know about it, you know about that might be directed those two. Yep. Yes, I'll just say this the the ghost ship has pretty fucking whack. The only good thing about that film is the opening like killing sequence where like hundreds of old people died because like the fucking ship Mass like gets cut or something cuz like ghosts cut it or some shit. I'm like everyone gets completely decapitated by that. That was the coolest song. Yeah. Don't don't bother go watch Thirteen Ghosts like legit. I I was like, I wonder if it's just yeah, but yeah, this is the only the only scary movie I got guys the other one off stream like I like it but everybody likes it and like you know the new it exactly it's so funny. It's it's slowly of fun off or flick. It's just you have a good time with it. I might I might like it if I got like really drunk and just like walking like if you can see yeah, like like like took like twenty twelve the other day, which is a fucking terrible movie but I was like watching it and like the right mindset like like just me watching this movie on my own like I don't think was great. But like I said, it's definitely time. We're having a couple of drinks I could see myself enjoying it. You know, I think I think it would definitely heightened The Experience if you watch this with with people a sponge We like you know with people from the early 2000s like like me. Yeah. Yeah, but no like even watch it now like truthfully even watching now. I did have a laugh so But we also the goggles will let you just see ghosts and that's not the biggest thing in the entire world. Okay. Listen, I just had placed off of like just like bugging me the whole movie like, okay, that's it. That's all that's all that's all I'm done. I mean he's taking instructions from some guy who was obsessed by a demon to build this machine that allows them to like see everything and everyone powered by Souls. So I'm sure you'd find something there for goggles. And yeah. Yeah. My favorite part about the ghost calls is that they don't talk about how they work their glasses, but wage is yeah, but the thing is I'm like I can't I can't really complain about it because the same thing Should happens in Inception where like you don't know how they get into each other's dreams there. Like there's this fucking machine there. Like how does it work? It's just about it be magic. You just gotta look at it may be a little bit. They do give you a little bit Expedition that like, I was developed by the military and blah blah blah and like it does seem like that is a big thing in the world. It's not just it's not just something like only these people have like Inception is like five minutes in the future and like that is a like the technology that's been developed. It's not just like oh, yeah only the three of us have this crazy thing you'll be able to walk right on the centuries in the past cuz possibility that this that a young person or a young college student wage saw this movie went to Silicon Valley founded Google. It came out with the Google Glasses cuz that's what they look like. They look like the Google Glasses you might be dead. Would be right you never fucking know Valley founded Google he tried it created glasses to see ghosts. He's like fuck I only get the internet think about it off or without third. Okay. So my my experience with watching the movie, I hear Ariel tells me we're going to do Halloween episode. My pic is Thirteen Ghosts. I'm like Thirteen Ghosts. All right, that's cool in my head. I'm thinking it's like some Disney Channel Original Movie Halloween thing 13 year 13 years 13 Wishes and like I see we pull it up on where we watch it Amazon, right, which it's not 13, which is a 16 which is shit. You're right. Yeah, thirteen movies watched it on a Nissan, right? And I saw the I saw the poster I was like, what is this? It's like gory looking and the font is all edgy and like the 13 in the middle. Oh, yeah, because that's what everything. And the early 2000s. I had a number and it had to have the number in the actual thing goes. Yeah, so I looked at that was like this is a scary movie and she's like, yeah, I was like I didn't know that so I could watch and watching everything and it's very of its time of course and I remember during like a scary part. It's I don't think I got the timing of it correct, but it's like off an active true level save your family. If you want to save your kids you need to kill yourself and it's like 6,000 so it's a very fun movie but what I like to tell it's in my head. I'm like if this was made today, it wouldn't it would be it's still be good if it handled correctly. It'd be really good. But there's a high chance that if cutting out a lot of the magic that's the thing about this movie. It's like a it's like a paradox. It has a great concept and a lot of what makes fog Movies not work is what makes this movie fun? So a lot of the early 2000s stuff. It's just fun to laugh at but the concept itself is pretty cool. I mean the whole thing it's like wow this cooling postmodernist off glass house. And then you find on the end. It's not a house. These walls actually have meaning they're supposed to stop the ghosts and then it has all this like The rules and just everything with about with the with the presentation of it all the yeah the editing with the ghosts. It kind of was giving me a little seizure with one of the like screen flashes into negative of the ghosts and like the loud noise of but it's it's kind of it's kind of fun. I'm not gonna lie if you watch it and surprise it's kind of fun, especially when you see Monk and Shaggy give off these like ridiculously emotional performances that are just superficial to watch in the context of what this movie is there. Like it's like watching a scene out of a friggin like like fences like August Wilson's fences, but it's monkey Shaggy internet goes they act and it's pretty great. So for that that reason alone this compare this movie too fucking fences. I've been asking for that one. He turned his head to his room back to its solid popular and he's like I'm going to pick up Denzel Washington in fences home safe performance. I followed his I light they saw the fences. Do you need box? And I'm like this motherfucker wage. Okay, but anyways like God, but it's just like these performances that you wouldn't expect from and it's just with these two because yeah the rest of the actors it's kind of a token Chrome. As you were already expanding based on the line, based on who was cast, you know, you have the rapper girl that's currently trending. You have the the song young female actress. That's true trending you have the ending wasn't thing back. Then you have the boy with like the spiked here. Oh, that's another early 2000s thing is a precocious kid. Yeah, that's been Skywalker. So in those ways it kind of feels like it's hitting check boxes. And in that sense. It kind of makes the movie even more dated but I feel if you look past a lot of what makes it dangerous it gets and and not even that but just laugh at what makes it dated. It'll make your experience really enjoyable and then it's and it's kind of cool to watch a movie like this and there's other movies that are in the same vein of of that kind of dated movie where you can see what still works and see what doesn't hold up with the time you'd be like. Oh, okay. So that's kind of cool to see wage. So for that there's some of that in this movie and yeah, I just love the whole the thought of the presentation of it. Yeah, we compared it to a to an escape room sense, especially with especially now with fences the escape from Denzel Washington's back he's coming for you. Yeah, the the beginning of when they first when the lawyer comes and and tells them that your uncle monkey monkey. Your uncle's pass way you have this house and you open up a laptop dumbest episode. Remember the laptop is like a message off like an early RPG PC game like it's all out or explaining the beginning seems like I have passed away and I have this house now. It's like the second to video game. Yeah. It's it has this formula that kind of works in that sense. It's good the next Doom franchise do med school. But real quick, though. Hello again. It's it's part of its time and they were trying to be hitec. So like when when when monkeys watching Good. I love I love my sister's husband to me, but Every part is like a laptop and like the uncle was talking or whatever. He's saying I'm going to give you my my fucking cool as glass house don't throw stones and shit and like Say that but I think somebody's mom says among says it. Okay cuz like I don't throw stones at home, so he's watching the video and like the like how the video closes and then open at home. It's like and I'm like, I'm not going to lie when I saw it as an eleven-year-old. I was like that that's not possible at all wage, but those are clearly possible, but that's not what The only thing I was like, okay well. Oh good. Oh, okay. Oh man. Let's see. It's a great flick. It's totally off so we can derive this much enjoyment from it. It's either way. So I guess the meaning of result of all this is that are the bottom line. Is that well if she might not be for the right reasons, well, I mean, it might not be for the intended reasons. It is very much worth the watch for some reasons and Yeah, and like if you're looking for a a campy movie that you know, that is a you know, it can't be horror movie that took a bit outdated. But but it just hasn't actually a very interesting concept and and I mean like if it was this was for the developed it was awful good but you know, if you had experienced it at the beginning of when it first came out definitely it holds a special place in your heart. I'm no doubt. But yeah sucks for me. They now hearing all this and just come to the realization like yeah, like it there's there's reasons why I like this and it might mainly be person off. I can only recommend this movie if you watch it and then immediately do a podcast with your friends and talk about their friends. Watch this movie First Watch the opening scene of Ghost Ship wage then watch fences and then once it goes and then just at that point, you should be pretty drunk hopefully drinking and then come up with an idea where you can make an escape the haunted maze offences and the glass house with monk being like your fucking tour guide was telling me Shalhoub up to these days. We got off. Yeah, he's probably telling her now. You can just be like, oh, yeah, he's dead. Oh man is is well, you know, there are things that will work in your movie and things that are that will not so if you ever make a store or something like that or anything just keep an eye out for those and if your idea doesn't work as a movie it might work as an escape room, you know, yeah, it was a video game review definitely definitely be made in a into the next, you know, like horror video video game Resident Evil Dead stressing. Well, why are we done? Yeah, you've done. I feel like we're done with the podcast forever now, we're not going to talk that long.

We are very vicious and at both of our worst sites come out. And unfortunately, I learned this fact the other night when I had my friend over for dinner, and I was like it's going to be so nice. We'll cook for you to sit back relax glass of wine. Eamon I will do all the work. And it got to be so awkward that. She was I'm gonna go in the other room a serious. What happened? So we'll, you know, Ian, has a background working in a kitchen. So he thinks he knows everything. I am even though you are chef spare thanks to blue. And we were doing a blue apron recipe. I like to follow the rules. I follow the recipe. Yeah. As you should. And when you do that it comes out like the picture, and it comes out deliver. Exact always delicious Enes more for freestyler. He freestyles. He's like I'm going to skip that part. And I'm like, no. Because what happens when he does that is then five sets later. He's like, oh, I shouldn't have done that. Okay. Anadyr the same person. Because whenever this. We always say this. We always say this, Ian and either same Nickelodeon or the same whenever I'm near the same or. Yes. All right, Nick and Angela the same Mehan or the same, Nick. Angela the same. Yes. Whenever I'm doing a recipe. I'm like, oh woops. I forgot to buy eggs. Let's put Chia seeds in water or maybe I could just use applesauce that's kind of like an egg. And like an it always turns out so fucking growth that and that makes my head exploded, especially usually do the grocery shopping. But like that night. I was can you just pick up like these three things from the grocery store, and he came back with none of the things he was like really like like the BOK Choy looked it was like a little weird. So I didn't get that. I got this and said like some veggie sides with your blue apron, we were making it was like one of those like all in one things that you just put into bake should've been easy in theory, it wound up being delicious for the record. But it was just a lot of fighting to get there. So that was like the first thing I was like, oh, okay. Great. Sure. And then like we just kept like sniping at each other. And no, I know, but what we what we realized is. When you work in a kitchen. There's like a hierarchy there's like, I don't know the actual titles. But I was like there's like sous-chef. Yeah. And there's like headship Bosh. So Dan thinks he's head. Chef right. So, but what what I so I was like all right? Let me see things from perspective. So like first of all I was mad at him for fighting with me in front of my friend. I was like you should have. That's embarrassing fucking put a smile on your face. And then we could talk about it later that pissed me off. That's a big thing for me. I don't like fighting in front of friends and makes other people very uncomfortable. Yes. And like we were doing it like we weren't screaming at each other. It was like fine. And we were like eventually joking. But like just a lot of sniping. I don't mind venting about fights to friends, but I don't like fighting in front of friends, totally agree. But so then the next time we decided to together I was like RAM see things from Enes perspective. And I'm going to put it in terms. He understands and I was like, I think that you're used or what what's wrong here is that? There's no hierarchy. And we're both equal and we're trying to do our own thing. So tonight, I'm gonna be Bosch. Chef I figure Sistan Shelvin next time we can switch. But this is Angela I'm so I feel like this was genius have evolved so much in terms of fighting. This was a genius solution actually worked really well. And I was like, I'm I'm Bosh chef and he kept laughing every time I said Bosh F, and I was like, that's my title, my boss chef. And when I say, something you have to listen to me, and if you wanna free style, you can but you have to run it by me. Oh my God. I love it. And Jan I'm we cook you can be bought shift. But tonight your bitch Schiff. So when naked I cook, I'm always, but I'll chef he doesn't cook he has half. So it works, but it's just not fun for him. Because I'm like he's like would we do? And then I'm boss, Jeff. So I tell them I'm like, I'm like chop the carrots, and he's like like this. I was like. Yep. Great. Okay. Now do this. And I'm just always like bossing them around which isn't really that bumper either one of us like like, yeah. So that's one of my things that I complained about this should be fun fun. And he's like you try and make it to fun. You're playing around with the music, you're trying to find the right music, and we have shit to do. I'm like I want to sit the mood. I have to find the right playlist on Spotify. I'm on your side in terms of like, the terms of everything even though I'm like, an where I go thrust be I agree with you. It's a terrible idea. Okay. Good. But yeah, the important thing is we found a resolution we've only done stuff where I'm Bosh chef so far, but eventually in we'll get his moment to shine. And I'll let you know how it goes. Let me know what's going on to your week. Well, I gotta tell you. So sometimes I use this podcast passively Gresley talk about things, I'm not comfortable talking with Nick about when I know that he's going to be in the room listening to the episode tonight today in the room with us. But sometimes I think he'll be in the room. So we had like a sex person on the podcast, and like kind of like ask not always I don't want you. I don't want. You listening to read read to into my questions don't read into into shit. Although if you ever hear Laura asking, very pointed question about sex, you might know. Not always not always very rarely. But a couple times. But anyways, sometimes I I have in the past use this podcast passively aggressively talk about things my relationship that are comfortable doing person wild have a podcast why that's truly one of the big reasons we still podcast so agile can do this. But I wasn't even I didn't really have that in mind when we had this like sex person on on one of the episodes. But Nick happened to be in the room, and she was talking about things. Anyways. Two hours later. I'm like hanging out in the closet, and he's like so hanging out in the closet where we'll literally hanging on the closet. I'm like changing it's like we should have like a romantic sexy time soon. I was like, oh, and I like did that guess talking about sex get you on the mood, and he's like, maybe? What I wanna have like a sexy time with you. Should we tell the listeners which episode? It was it was go for it was j today, and she said, you should schedule sexy time and settled. So he was kinda trying to schedule it. He was like, I think we should like plant a sexy time soon. And I was like, yeah. I would love that. He's like cool. And I don't know I feel like that was episode like one hundred eighty three unlike I've passively aggressively tried to talk about things for one hundred eighty episodes from first times finally working finally worked, and I didn't even mean to do it like it was just she was talking about sex, and it got him in the mood. That's just how you know. We picked a great guests for the fun cast. She got Nick horned up got Nick all horned up. And I don't know I wanted to share that. Because I was like, well, he's a little light bulb moment. It actually worked on me too. I was like I should schedule sexy time with in. And then I got my period. And I was like never mind. No. But next time next time. All right. We're going to jump into what's in the news next. But first, let's take a quick sponsor. A break.

And bustle was letting everybody know about why Serena Williams and bumbler teaming up for this new. It's called the ball is in her court campaign. This was an atoll Lia lucinski reporting. So the Super Bowl has passed at this point. But at this year's Super Bowl bumble will have announced a partnership with Serena Williams for their global make the first move campaign. They say that Serena Williams is the embodiment of their brand which I think is really cool because three and Williams is like a strong, independent powerful lady. Yeah. She's a she's a very successful lady. Like, I love that that that should be the face of bumble. Yes. She's like not afraid to stick up for herself. And the hung the whole like make the first move 'cause she likes plays jenness making moves. I get it get it. So they said the campaign is going to be focused around women making the first food. Move in every aspect of life. Whether it be dating friendship, and or business, and that's because bumble has three categories right now, they've dating than they have meeting friends who their BFF feature. And then they're third feature. I didn't know about they have networking called bumble biz. So yeah, as bumbled global advisors renewable rooms is going to aim to reinforce the platforms mission to end, misogyny and power women around the world like more and more accurate about bumble. And like I fucking love the women that are behind this company, Whitney Wolfman. Yeah. Great decisions. You know, it's of course, it's marketing it's all just to sell a product and law. I don't wanna lay if you're gonna Kuwait you're gonna get marketing, let's do one. Then let's do marketing that empowers women, right? Because a lot of the time being on a dating app, and like dealing with like gross messages for men it can get you down. So I liked it. They're angles to empower. It's important to dressing in need that women have very little like most most dating apps. Don't come at it from that perspective. So I really I really I'm down with that. Yeah. Thank you for sharing that. I love it worse. What are you reading about? So I was reading my favorite the New Yorker. This is dating terms inspired by cat fishing by Sarah, k Runnells now in all honesty. This is a humor piece. So it's not even like a news piece. But I just find it so funny because Angela how often on this podcast. Do we talk about new dating terms very often? I feel like any number of the terms that this writer came up with I would believe or real. Yeah. So there's like orbiting like, let's say. We've been eating submarine submarine. Ing of bombing red crumbling. There's so many. So she came up with a bunch inspired by catfish ING, and these are not even real. But they I was like they might as well be buck in real so number one star fishing. I'm just going to read a few that are my favorite when your date has star quality. But is really a brainless opportunistic bottom. Feeder just like a starfish octopus ING when someone is dating eight people at once. Definitely thing. Whether or not we haven't aim for it yet gold fishing when you flush memories of a bad date down the toilet. Stingray. When a date makes it clear that you're getting some tale tonight. But it can also kill you. How a budding when you're pairs perfectly with a white wine. Monk fishing when your date has a huge head tiny is an enormous mouth filled with needle like teeth. I was hoping it would just be that. They enjoy the TV show monk. That's the you would write big Tony shalhoub fan when he you know, he's great and marvelous may know, we haven't talked about MS Mazel, God the best show best show. Okay. I'm gonna read a few more shrimping when you peel off layers to get to the good stuff, and they're still shit to deal. When you when you eat shrimp. You eat their shed will get there's poop in the shrimp. Okay. Tuna ING when your date doesn't realize that they're getting can. And floundering the only way to describe my dating life fill free to use any of these as real life. Dating terms rate, a think piece about it. You could be our next news story, they might as well be real dating terms because they're they're no crazier than the ones. We actually talk about on this show. Yes. All right.

They just they realized that they were more friends, and then I'm at him her party. And Angela of course, Ian, her feel say fuel say, we our pets. Love was a little more direct. I just messaged him.

I we have an anonymous listener they wrote in with the subject line. I have feelings for my best friend, which goes perfectly with this week's topic. So she says I recently told my best friend that I feeling for him. And he reciprocated we recently went on our first date, and it was really great. And he was extremely affectionate and gentlemanly it seemed like everything was headed in a positive direction over the last month until we had a DT Artoc that's define the relationship where he said, he didn't think he would was in a place for relationship right now man as background he graduates from college in six months, and doesn't know what he wants to do following registration. And I live about an hour away. Having graduated already is this a sign that I should just give up on the thought of a relationship with him and just go back to being friends while okay? It's more than the sign. Yeah. He it's one in a science more him like flat out saying. It. But maybe you're not wanting to tell to Royal exactly wanting to hear him processing because it's not what you want to hear. So it's hard to hear. I think you might have trouble wing back to being friends. But I mean, I love your positively. You're like, let's just go back to being friends. It's great that you that you think you might be able to. So that's good. But yeah, I mean, the good thing that I'm hearing here is that you have no problem communicating with this guy. Like number one, you told him he had feelings for him. So you had the balls to do that. I hate the phrase the balls because it's always like giant giant to do. It you whatever you have the guts to tell them how you fell and it works out. Great. I ain't Clinton. To tell to have the the DT are talk. And then that he was honest with you when you had that talk. You know, he was pretty bold got assays is doing great, communication wise. So yeah, I mean, I honestly think if you want to have a serious relationship with this guy, and he's told you don't that? He doesn't want that then. Yeah. I think you just gotta say like, okay, cool, man. Like, I thought things were going. Well, but I think we wanted for things to like I'm going to move on and find someone that wants what I want like let's go back to being friends, and I hope that you can you might need a little space in between. Yes. But I don't know. That would be my take. Yeah. Definitely be honest with yourself about what your looking for. Because of he's like, I just wanna like kinda string this long and be casual don't be like think I could do that when deep down, you know, you wanna relationship because then you're going to build up resentments, and it's just going to be yucky. You're not gonna be happy. Yeah. But yeah, I mean you guys sound like you're really good at communicating. So just tell me how you feel like you've been doing the whole way the, you know, so far, and I grew with little space in between you probably could have shot at going back to a friendship. You just need that space. That's important. What else we got in the mailbox? Okay. We've another anonymous listener, and they write high. So I've been friends with this guy for like a year now, and I'm just realizing I probably have feelings for him. He's an ex army guy. Cute super funny confident rescues animal. He's got he's got my vote. You know, I'm like adopt don't shop. Yes. And he he rescues them any owns zone house. Oh shit together. Only twenty four. Wow. Could be a cougar for him. He await the list goes on. He's also super fit and cut. Yeah. Face. He is going to school to be a veterinarian. I love this guy. Catch. She's building him. A course you love him. Of course, you have a crush on him. Oh my God. He sounds fantastic. So yes, she's super good catch that somehow has not been scooped up yet. Here's the problem though. He's like three or five inches shorter than me. I'm super interested. But like every time I imagine him having to go on his tippy toes to kiss me or how it would be in heels around him. I just can't please help. How do I get over my own insecurities and just invite this man on a date? I don't wanna get anything started and ruin our friendship and tell him the reason why is because he short I'd be. Massive bitch for that. Well, no, don't tell me. It's because he's short because. Okay. So he hasn't asked he hasn't told her he has feelings for her. She has them for him. So there's no reason that she should anything about his height that should never ever ever come up as 'specially just never talk about mixed signals. Yeah. Sheep roaches. She's like, I really into you. But you're short I really by by your short. So I don't know. Like don't don't do that. No don't ever have that happen. And if he comes does tells you I that is feeling for you. Don't be like maybe, but you're short. No, no, no, no don't to this word. Just no. You're not allowed to say that I've dated to shorter people in my time one guy in college. It was fine. I keep wasn't like I I wasn't that like sexually attracted him. This guy. Sounds like he's like cut though bit. And this guy. Definitely wasn't and. Yeah, just personalise. I wasn't that into that guy. And then and then I dated another guy when I moved to New York. I think both times wasn't like the chemistry wasn't there. And they also happen to be shorter. Oh, I dated another guy that was shorter than me. Now. So yeah, I actually have dated a handful of guys that are shorter than me. And some lasted longer than others. I think it all just. Yeah. It it depends on you know, if you're if it bothers you are not I have a couple friends that are with people that are there taller them than their guy and like Bill both make jokes about it. Like, one of my friends recently got pregnant and in the like baby post the guy wrote like I really hope that he gets like most of her jeans like including her high all like like he made like a cute little thing about it. And and she was like, I'm not even that tall, which was funny, but I don't know actually. Taller than we read that story about the bride who wanted her groom to put lifts in his shoes. Yeah. What happens? I'm I am a little taller than in. We're like the same height. But yeah. Like, if I were he'll definitely much taller, and I feel like in the last couple years you've gotten better posture, maybe than like, yeah. You just come across as taller yet. They do. Well, I'm like a little leaner, he's wider which sometimes make somebody present shorter. I guess. Yeah. But I had the same thing in my head. I was not attracted to short men, and like that I went on a few days with guys that were just too short. And I was not physically attracted to them. I just went on a date with Eaton happened to be attracted to him. And like, I think that's the thing is like if you it sounds like you're already attracted to this guy. So it shouldn't be too much of a hump to get over. If you're worried about other people think like that's stupid. Yeah. Who's really only two reasons that you could be worried about dating shirt or guys you're not physically attracted to them or. Or you're worried about what other people think, and you've already said you think he's like soup and a good stuff. So like it sounds like you're good there. If the issue is what other people think like, you know, you're going to be in a happy healthy relationship with the super cut veterinarian. So like, I don't think that your wedding. It'll be great. Yeah. Exactly. So. Yeah. Like get ahead get out of your head. And like, you know, be confident that you're tracked him before you tell him how you feel yet. That's true thinking anytime, you're gonna start dating a friend like be sherve, your feelings before you go for it. We hope that's helpful.

Yes, we've discussed getting stuck in the friend zone a little bit. Like, that's a bummer if you if you get stuck in the friends. Yes. And that's done gas oats on that. Yes. I've been stuck in the friend zone before. But we've never talked about what happens when two friends. Discover they're both attracted to each other. And they start dating and overly bypassing this friend zone. Right. And then you're like in this new weird phase that you need a little guidance on because you're transitioning the dynamic of your relationship. So this happens a lot you were friends for years. There was no chemistry. But then all of a sudden day it just clicks. And you decide to go for it. It can be awkward at first because things are changing I actually found on Cosmo or girl. Julia pooch Pugachev ski favorite last name that we lived to say mccafe's Kiwi. Chest. Sometimes we breathe it. She wrote. So she recently started dating a friend great. And she wrote like a list of tips for transitioning into a relationship that I thought were really good. Good. Yeah. Let's let's go through them together. So I is flirt to test the waters, which is always smart. We kind of say that almost an that's good advice for like any situation where you're not sure how somebody feels just kind of flirt and see if they flirt back. Right. Exactly before your rock, the boat number to make sure you have the right kind of friendship for relationship because she says there's a huge difference between your writer Diaby, EFF and someone who's just really fun to party with. So I think that's good advice because we all have different friends for different things, if it's not the kind of friend that you're like writer Dianne having good conversations with and sharing lot about like, they're, you know, you might think you have chemistry released you potential when you really don't. Yes. It's other kind of friend. Yeah. Be honest about why you want to date them, there should be an element of sexual attraction. Just not just not the fact that you're comfortable, you might become around somebody, but make sure also attracted to them, and you can like picture yourself kissing them. And that is exciting right? And not just good on. Paper. Like we talk about yet. Sometimes. Number four is go all in if you're going to do this. She says wavering a little is normal at first if you've Al your friendship, but consistently worrying about the state of your friendship with every new step. You take a romantic development is no goods like don't constantly be like, oh, what happens if we break up like just like being the moment in a moment. Ants once you decide to go for it and don't involve your friends too much in the beginning. Because you know, when you share friends, it's going to be really weird for you to be like talking shedder asking for advice when when when they have equal alliance to you, and the other friend, you know, when you're when you're friends are only your friends, and they don't know the guy, you're dating or the girl, you're dating then, you know, their alliances with you. So just be careful what you say to your mutual friends. Yes. She said pick a non mutual friend too. Because obviously, you're going to vent. Anyway, just when he doesn't know him. Next. She says expect things including six might be really awkward at first because you've known them for so long. You're like oh God. Now, you're seeing those weird, but you'll get over that if you are checked into each other. Yeah. It's like riding a bike just keep trying and expect that your relationship it's going to get a little more complicated. But you know that happens when when any relationship involves to something different is true. Right. It is time for breezy. Could. When we think of famous friends that dated each other people always going to Ross and Rachel and ignore the clearly superior healthier couple. That is Monica and Chandler course, I'm going to read a modular. I think that's their relationship name or Chanuka quote. And like channel about that. Better Channa, quote, and Laura has to guess it was said before or after they went from friends to levers and a game we call where the friends just friends. I love it. I'm ready to play. All right. Hit me with it. Okay. I Monica says five more pushups enough lash you and then Chandler says one to two and a half. Okay. Just show me one of them was that before after after. I was actually before. Okay. They were they were doing Petrosky step of flirting xactly. She was testing the waters with a little flirty boob action. Okay, next. This is Chandler to Monica. He says we could have a cat that had a bell on its collar. And we could hear it every time it ran through the kitty door. I'm going to say after because like I'm thinking that they're dating they're talking about like what life can be like when they move in. You got it. That was. Yeah. He was fantasizing about their future. So cute next. Again, chiller to Monica. He says when we're forty if neither of us are married. What do you say you, and I get together and have one meaning a baby I'm gonna say before because they weren't even together. Yeah. That one might be low obvious. But yes, it'd be bad. If I got that one wrong. There's there were many hints. We all miss them. Okay. Chandler again. He says, you are my favorite people. I think he means person. I don't know if he said people are person. Okay. You're my favorite person in the most beautiful woman ever known in real life was before after they started dating feel like that would be like when he's asked telling her his feelings. So I don't know what that counts as but I'm gonna say like a mosaic technically after kind of. It was actually before. Apparently, it was like a flashback episode. How can you like years before? Well, those beautiful. Okay. Chandler again, Chandler is doing all the talking Chandler says you can balloon up or you can shrink down, and I will still love you all after. Yup. Because, you know, Monica struggles with her weight them on that loves you reassure. No at all all the your worse. Your best no matter. What exactly okay? Finally, last one Chandler Monica. He says you just you look so different terrific that dress that body. I have a feeling this is before because he's like flirting kind of. So it's way before it's back when they do like one of the real flashback episodes and Monica like just lost a bunch of weight because they do the whole thing. Monica rated teen and like Chandler super into her. And then she tries to flirt with him. And she accidentally cuts off his toe. I recently watched that besides it was off his toes. She'd she'd like Rachel tells her to actually everything in the kitchen is really sexy, and like touch it to herself. So she's like holding MAC and cheese up to her face. And then she drops it. And then like in the in the kerfuffle, she drops in knife on his foot and chops. God, I don't remember that. I had in research this episode. I was like great writing. I love it. Oh my God.

A Bit of Relief: Reruns, Rituals and Restaurants

"Because I have very sedentary job even by sedentary job standards. I like to do squats in my chair. I will just lift myself up. The people at home wants to just every once in a while like yoga. Squat is very Milan. I think they call it really good for your legs every hour. Hi I'm James Poniewozik and TV critic for the New York Times other than the fear death and social collapse and economics task trophy. The day to day of my life not really changed that much. I mean I always worked from home. This thing that you know everybody is dealing with now of you know. How do I keep myself from going insane? If I don't go outside that's been my life for years over all kind of stay at home. Tv critics our welcome to my world America particularly as a TV critic. I'm very attuned. To the fact that there is a lot of language of shame that is built around our consumption of TV. Right people who watch TV are couch potatoes and there might be a feeling that you're quarantined inside and watching six episodes of something on Netflix. That you're doing something shameful and unproductive and I am here to tell you as professional. Tv watcher that you should not feel ashamed. Consuming entertainment experiencing good or even brilliantly. Dumb art is a form of self care. It is something salutory that you were doing for your brain to help your brain deal with the often painful process of living in the world in this really crazy time are whether it is a marble statue or a network. Sitcom is human beings trying to express something that they can't express in literal language and how to process all of the overwhelming things that humans have to deal with. Honestly that was probably a big aspect of my childhood. I think my parents and I often communicated with each other more through the shows. We were watching at the same time then through things that we directly said to each other you know. I remember watching Mash during the afternoon. In the early evening when it would rerun With my dad my dad drove a a beer and liquor delivery truck he was a teamster which was a very physically punishing job like he destroyed his back in his knees and so when he would come home he would for some reason. This felt good to him with with lie down on the living room floor front of the TV and my memory of watching mashes is me on the living room couch and my dad in front of me. Maybe propped up on one arm on the third watching the TV. Serve at my feet beans potatoes potatoes. Potatoes APPLESAUCE APPLESAUCE applesauce. My Dad was not of the generation where you would like you know you purposely do things to bond with your children but it was something that was something that we did. You know it was it was it was a routine. Frank are you kidding? My palms are sweating. I'm afraid to tell him you. Better show him the orders radar me so right now. It's my wife and I and we have two kids at home. My younger sons in high school. My older son is in his first year of college and is now around the house and we're not really a sports family but you know survivor. It's our you know competition. There is a great deal of Meta survivor analysis that occupies much of the time in our house. I tend to get a lot while we're watching survivor. Because I make comments or have questions for my son the survivor expert. You didn't do anything you made fun of and you come here and you of break. The spell or interrupt. Somebody's dialogue and then somebody has to rewind and you come here and you tell me. Don't bite the hand that feed you. I feed myself then. I'm in trouble and I am reminded that you know watching. Survivor is a privilege. Not a right out of this game. I've been watching Bob's burgers. That's the show that Just Andrea and my younger son and I watched together. My wife is not particularly into the show. My older son can take it or leave it so that will be if you know everybody else has gone to bed or you know doing something else and we do have a little dance that we do sitting on the catch. There's a theme song it's on. I think Ukulele Dune Dent. Percussion thing and lean into each other bomb shelters back the other way boom and bunk shelters again just US whereas some of our our other regular shows my older son who's a music major in college. He was able to aerodrome beginning to end all the percussion moments in the Friday. Night Lights Theme Song. He had all these gestures that I can't reproduce. This is one of the most beautiful shows ever made for television. That's not just about football. Everybody wrote US off everybody but about community about the connection among people and about how a society needs every one of its members to contribute written for the good of all. There are a few out there who do still believe in you fuel. Never give up on you. You go back out on the field. Those are the people I want in your minds. Those are the people I want in. Your hearts never underestimate. Just how much you need to hear. Coach Taylor clear is full hearts. Wow I can't change the fact that every human on earth has a real existential problem right now and I can't change. How even some of the shows that I love and that simply entertain me before are now in many ways painful reminders. But I can deal with them and make it a little easier to tolerate and even enjoy getting through it through the people that I watch with and through the rituals that we have watching sharing TV with people. You love whether there with you or you know on the other end of zoom chat can be a really valuable way to get through this. Hi I'm table. Row and the California restaurant critic for the New York Times and also a columnist for the New York Times magazine while it's been really strange because you know there isn't much use for restaurant. Criticism right now The restaurant industry is suffering and so many restaurant workers are out of work. And I'm really really worried I'm really missing going out to restaurants and being in public spaces and and the luxury of other people cooking for me and I'm cooking a lot at home but I'm also doing this really slightly strange thing. Which is re- watching food scenes in movies that I love 'cause I haven't had that contact in public spaces and restaurants are so important to me so there's something about seeing people being together cooking and eating in a film or TV show. That's just really doing it for me. Right now Over the weekend I watched big night burner book Wa so I intended to just watch the dinner scene which is kind of an epic Italian style dinner see inset in the nineteen fifties but when the movie opened it's cloudy. Ovilla stinging this very beautiful song with his like operatic voice waves or rolling on the Jersey shore and I just ended up watching the whole movie. I just want to explain a tiny bit of the movie to You. So what it's about two brothers more so Danley to Gee Tony Tony Shillue. Sometimes you got to know you tasted who are running restaurant on the Jersey shore and it's a classic setup. The restaurant across the street from them is super successful. Meanwhile they're restaurant is really quiet kind of failing. They owe the bank a lot of money and part of it is that they just refused to cook Italian American food but I get a federal spaghetti. This right what. Well no own main courses Spaghetti some. Yes but you see results is rice starch. And it doesn't go really with Pasta. You know people like Spaghetti with meatballs and they want tons of seafood and their results so there are no meatballs with Danny sometimes because he likes to be alone and Tony Shalhoub plays perfectionist chef. Who Refuses to compromise? Just make news why she likes starch. I Dunno come up and they only want to make very traditional Italian stuff. What are these people? She's a criminal I want to talk about? I mean there are moments. I don't WanNa be mean to Stanley Tucci. But there are moments where. It's almost like you know how the French accents are in Monty Python. WanNa talk to you know more. You're out there just absurd and silly and over the top hat in your general direction. They're few moments. Where the both got a starch. Maybe I should do making mashed potato from the other side. They're Italian accents. Get a little cartoonish finished in. I'm going to talk to where she know understand anyway. But it's so charming. It's so charming all the same. That it's fine machine delivers a man. One of my favorite moments is it's just like Stanley Tucci and Tony. Shalhoub 's hairy forearms making the pasta. There's something about seeing like bear hairy forearms making a huge mess with jokes and flower. You know needing it directly on the table where one of the cooks also sleeps. Where all being so careful right now. I mean as we should be you. Know with gloves and masks and the intimacy of the two of them cooking together and also cooking for other people. It's it's like a really really beautiful. So the rival restaurant across the street. That's doing really well. It's by this like show boat restaurant. Her who light stuff on fire to create a scene in the dining room and the brothers run this very quiet simple restaurant and the rival restauranter says you know what I'm friends with Louis Prima and he's coming to town next week and I'll tell him to come to your restaurant. So why don't you cook a special dinner for Louis Prima US and so they plan this big night to cook for a fit for a celebrity? And they're waiting and waiting and people start drinking and dancing and eating snacks and like wisps of hair. Coming Undone are starting to get a little wild and they just sit down to eat dinner without Louis Three. Let's go over the. That's where like the magic of the movie happens. It's all the table in secret recipe there in this very plane. Dining room the music is blasting. And there's always this moment at a dinner party. When all of a sudden people have had just enough to drink that they sort of start to loosen up and you see it happen veal time in the movie a good. I should kill you so all of a sudden glasses start. Clinking people are holding wine bottles and pretending to Karaoke and downsizing you can see all these women with their perfect red lips on obscured by Moscow. And everyone's making sure that everyone else's glosses stay full all the time. It was like catnip for me and it also emotionally wrecked me to see people having so much fun. There's something magical about seeing restaurants that are really really alive and busy and financially successful probably to. It's so fortifying like to remember that we can gather like that again on the other side of this Between two or cancellations lost creative gigs and shrinking ad revenue.

The Bloom Files | The X-Files Season 2 Episodes 19 & 23: Dd Kalm & Soft Light

"Before we get into this week's edition of the plume files. I wanted to squeeze in a couple of quick seconds and talk about our sponsor for this week. Gyco do you own or rent your home. Sure you do. I bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy. Bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. geico visit. geico dot com today. That's geico dot com now. Excuse me got some case open into do. The truth is out there and here who knows either way we are opening up the bloom files. You're on polls show recap the x. Files watch flesh. I watch podcast. Hello everybody mike. Bloom here with it. Another doubleheader of monster of the week slash scientific phenomena of the week perhaps for this particular week. We got a lot to get into here. We talk to episodes of season to season two episode. One thousand nine hundred dot com and season two episode twenty-three soft light. Of course i am joined by my partner on this case and my wife someone who i would follow much like a shadow the hopefully. I don't have to kill anybody in exchange for being your shadow boy high. What an intro. That should have been in my vows. I guess so and my wife. I think you mean you're my ear. My husband would that be odd. If she's my partner on this podcast. And i am her husband sell. They wouldn't be. I'd okay. I'll do it anyway. Nice to be here happy to be here. My shadow will not eat you alive. That's what you say. I'm waiting for one day. That's what i say. Yeah exactly. I think the more. I've experienced these weird things on the x files. The more that. I've just opened up my imagination to what creepy stuff is gonna come. Inflict harm me any point. Study dark matter. I think we'll talk about it. I don't know if the people who wrote this episode studying much dirk matter either. But yeah this is a weird couple of episodes. It feels a little a little bit since. We've gone into the weird stuff. And i think that's because we've really focus a lot on stuff that biden the earlier. This is a really good not introduction but continuance of the typical x files episode where it is sort of one in done and it is something weird or monstrous or paranormal. And it's not always about aliens. It's typically actually. Most of the series is not about aliens when we have to pick and choose episodes so that we're not. We're not watching the entire series. We tend to pick the ones that are more large arc. Because i don't know how you would know what was happening right if you did. Watch the who. So you know we have to skip some of the more fun or no more. I guess you could say like weird phenomenon. These ones i picked out of season. Two which is chock full of really good kind of like oddball episodes of mysteries. And there's a lot of like weird ones that like just you know our our my cup of tea like there's a cannibalistic town but yeah these are really good and i. I like dot com because it is like a bottle episode. Where all the bottle. Yeah it all happens in the same space over like a certain episode of twenty four but info you know what i mean like title is this is fox. Laughs at me stays in the network. I'm your husband right. But i agree that it's the these episodes are certainly odd or should i say dodd. And they're very fun again. I've talked so much about how. I have really come to terms with the fact that this show is not what i assume on pop culture osmosis and i never thought they'd be like oh. We're gonna watch an episode of the x files where tony shalhoub plays. A man who was hit by a park looks or explosion and now show is able to essentially pull people into like a black hole type of effect that kills them instantly. Yeah that's a good synopsis. But i do think you get moments of files pop culture reference in these two episodes especially in the second one when they're quote unquote investigating as part of like a police crime unit. And you get a lot of that back and forth where it's like you think about the episode of the simpsons that they appear on right. That's exactly the way they sound on that episode. So you think it's good so we've got to mysteries to solve here. Let's hop right into it. Let's get into dot com because both of these episodes start off with a cold open quite literally cold and we are back at see after being there in colony and game it is a different see but john krause actually wrote this into us over the past week that the reason why this episode ends up coming about is because they had sort of rent it out yeah as the sub is going to mention this for gaming for colony as we talked about last week and they said well we sort of have like the lease on it might as well use it. Yeah you're thinking. Oh this is such a big coincidence. It was not but it's still a really great episode. It's a good episode. From what i heard though not a good time making it. I believe chris. Carter like just a process from hell because apparently the temperature drop substantially. When they were on the sub. It was super cramped. The of course you had to have the old age makeup being applied every day which probably took hours at a time. Yeah the makeup. In this. I thought was really really great from a perspective of watching. Tv show twenty years out man. Things have advanced so much in the field of of makeup and special effects. That like this pretty good. It holds up. Well yeah. I mean. I would say well. We'll get into it. I mean you know it's makeup because you know who they are like. It's like you're watching. I will say. I think they did a much better job on scully. Mulder moulder playing potato. I also think moulders like acting skills in this are just like very strange like choice to have caused by parkinson's disease like as especially because he's not old. These old. Is that raising dehydrates financed by episode raising people or something so it's called dot com and we had to look this up. Neither of us are norwegian or swedish or and this is not a norwegian phrase that all. It's actually just play on. The norwegian film dead calm right which. I don't think that's an iranian film. It's got i think it has. I thought it was nicole. Kidman's and oh yeah no no dane. so basically. That's about like a minute takes place in the norwegian. Say to write notes. It's a couple that are on a boat and i click in coming get picked up by the pickup. Billy zane. who is this mysterious guy says. Oh my boat is luxury. And then he'll like kidnaps nicole kidman. So it's sort of like a thriller on the open sea. Yeah essentially what they did was they said. Oh it'd be funny if we called this episode dead calm but because it takes place in scandinavia dodd. Kind of sounds. Like dead and calm with the k. Is not calm with c. norwegian. They just took it and like yes. They made a word they made. Two words essentially made up a phrase out of it which you know maybe maybe nowadays. They would consult with more like scandinavian people in the writer's room. I don't know i feel like it's not. I not speaking of surly. Someone with scandinavian. Here just doesn't seem like they were particularly offensive or ot with any stereotype renamed. That's a little like bit a choice. I mean we barely even spent time in norway. We're mostly on the sea. No the only people that are due to new origin characters and orlov orlov and the other guy But yeah i mean those are your main characters dot guy the other guy and modern scully and dead. Captain berklee berkeley. Let's start with our cold open here. So basically barklay is the captain of this naval vessel. Everyone else has abandoned ship They basically say. Like i don't trust you captain barclay. I'm going down with the ship. Yeah exactly ironically enough. We're going to get more star trek stuff in the second episode. Five interesting that the captain. Here's named barklay considering the same in star trek the next generation but basically you know barklay is losing his crew rapidly abandoning him. In the moment we then cut to you know. I said that the stereotypes were not necessarily there for scandinavia. Certainly there for fishermen we have these fishermen who loved has have larry and of course are wearing knit cable sweaters. They're wearing beanies. They have big bushy beards. Whenever you think of okay. This is a sort of deadliest catch long-term offshore fishermen. It's going to be this guy. Just close your eyes and thinking that he looks great is belongs on a magazine cover magazine. Fisherman's monthly fisherman's fisherman's monthly is probably a thing. For sure is so they end up this canadian. Fishing vessel ends up picking up the lifeboat from the american naval vessel but despite the crew escape it's too late they're al- raising people wrinkly. Yeah they're very very wrinkly but it. Apparently i think all of them died right with the exception of the one person. That's in the icu that they're like failing to basically. Yeah because mulder and scully. They get called in here because nobody has any idea. What's going on. I think okay. Did they rapidly age. What's going on with their body. I'm assuming that it's the former. Because all these people died when it turns out probably was much more like dehydration as a result of the salinity that sets in their system. yeah So moulder calls scully in like this is not an x. Files case motor co scully. Because he heard about it and says okay. I don't have clearance to get into the icu. Basically yeah. I need you to do your wave car thing medical knowledge hubbub. And get me some information and scully attempts to and she gets shut down by. Yeah we'll she also does this thing where she like. She tries to play it up. Like can i see his medical chart like she does that thing like no. She's like who's who's in charge like. She tries to take like an upper hand and assume that people. Oh she must being charged. Yeah exactly and she does that often. She'll try to like Like like who who ordered these tests or like that you know shows you that in cases but whatever this this doctor is like no no no you don't have clearance to be here get out. So even though a school it gets turned away does not deter moulder so many red herrings enough to fill a fishing net. If you will in this episode and the first trail we go down is that moulder believes the phenomenon going on aboard this ship ties into something called the philadelphia experiment which was sort of like the red headed. Stepchild of the manhattan experience sister. I would say because they sort of this is like the jan brady of the project more attention but basically it's this idea and i've read up a little bit about this. This is a real thing. Even though it wasn't exactly proven people say there are there are records of it aware. Scientists were brought into the secret project to attempt to cloak naval battleships. Yes so it's an absolutely wild again going back to star trek. That's something you can imagine. The far future. I cannot imagine coming up with cloaking technology in the nineteen forties. Now so i think. I mean it's obviously they took that idea and just kind of threw it into the x files because it is a very x-files ask idea so moulders into that. He thinks that's what's happening. Sort of but then he also coupled with this idea of okay but also on the other hand. I've been studying. All these cases of boats disappeared around this one area and moulder is now essentially putting out this idea of maybe. There's a wormhole. Yeah bermuda triangle but Wrinkle in time is what he basically he thinks. It's like bermuda triangle which is another episode. The watch of the x. Files actually one that involves the bermuda triangle. It's may one of my favorite episodes but basically he thinks that's happening. The norwegian say so time fickle thing so interesting because this episode. I feel like a fish on the line. You keep getting jerked about. And all these different places have like a wormhole await no. Maybe it has like this. We'll talk about the magnet theory later. Yeah so when we when they said the thing. You're like ooh. Oh so interesting i like. Don't get too attached even. Try to buy into it because we're going to bail on fairly quickly fairly quickly. These two are heading off to norway to sort of figure it out for themselves and in this. I guess like see shot seaside bar. They run into head. Ron time retron time. Who's played by an actor by the name of john savage who the only thing i knew him from is that he actually played claude in the film version of the musical hair. Oh really imagine him protesting. The fact of the military can't cut his hair that it might as well become a fisherman. I can grow my hair. All i wanted to including facially speaking. He just looks familiar. But i don't remember. But i know him from but i mean he's like your typical like sullied matt fishermen. I'm trying to remember is. It was richard dreyfuss Quint yeah exactly that type just like very like lives as code by the see exactly. But he's also he's despite living in. Norway are consummate american as well as an ex pat so he's basically saying all right. I'm the middleman here. Let me tell you what's going on. This is when he brings in yet. Another red herring about the norwegian myth about a piece of rock falling from the sky from an evil god which then got my mind turning of okay is there's like alien meteorite again. There's a norwegian myths in this episode. To which i don't dislike actually really like norton like norwegian viking myth lor by no. That's not what's happening. They trondheim volunteers to take them out to that. Abandoned boat moulder not faring. So well and i think it's safe to say both of us would be in moulders position as well. We don't do well on the open waters. I am afraid of open. Water just gets exactly. So i think you especially concerned what happens to moulder later on. You'd be looking a little potato and potato in the fish s. Because i actually really love the experience of going out on a boat like loving like i love the breeze in your hair and then like within ten minutes just like i am nauseous. And it's just gets worse. As i get older as to be better when i was younger is just like no. That's an age thing to leave. Your equilibrium gets less. Oh that's interesting. But there's like a bell curve of equilibrium. where when you like kids can like like do flips and jumps in the spin around easier. And gymnasts were so young. No bandy. They've owns aren't solid yet. Oh speaking of bones so they they go to the ship here and it looks like it's been abandoned for like twenty or thirty years right like a lot of corrosion on it. It's very rough and they go to the bunk and they find some bones. Find lots of bone cristea bello height. Assume that all of the crew had lapsed. But i guess some people stayed with the captain or were they were already dead. At that point. It's unclear. But i think you're i mean it's weird because when i first watched this episode i was. It's hard to tell from the beginning the time that those people were in your like. Is this happening in the past. Is this happening in the present and then you find out. It's the present as soon as they get picked up but when they go down onto the bunker. You're like we. When did this happen again. Because like so corroded they look like if this ship had sunk and you find the bodies that people videos of the titanic like when you see it through. The little camera and bill paxton goes underwater. God yes or actual documentaries. I'm pretty sure that was a real life thing. So is there are trying to say okay. This is weird. Let's leave vacant. Because trondheim spoke on taking. I did initially think a ghost took his like. Are there going on the ship. And i'm like no. I think that somebody stole it was just the ghost. Pirates pirates goes pirates. So yeah it turns out that on this ship were toll olafsson. I should say not orlov or who off to get turns out that olafsson was trying times boat. Olafsson had been camped out in on that ship. Yeah yeah so. The the he's the pirate right. So i'm assuming the his clear pirate whaler. Oh all right well. We're going to take the ship now and stay away because they find the ship in the middle of the ocean there. I'd probably just like trying to see what's on any porna- storm to use a piece of the seapower lines uh-huh and so i guess someone from a wolfson's crew stole sometimes but not all offset ironically dallas and it's pirate code every man for himself every buccaneer so tron himes first mate dies here seemingly killed by olafsson that's going to send trondheim really down a spiral path that leads into becoming the big bad of the episode. Ironically enough. yeah he's just a big bad. I think he just is a very human reaction to all of this. There's very much so the modern scully side of humanity. And then the trondheim side if you managed like people who came under pressure and then people who rise above. And i think that so you know. It's i don't think he's a bad person. I think he just like didn't do the right thing. I think you panic. Yeah he panics and he just wants to survive. 'cause i think again. He thought he was cool as a cucumber when he was talking to sculptor sculpture. Seventeen minutes people martin. Luther love it when it comes out. But when scully mulder like oh i know the see i can take this thing. Don't you worry. And then he realized that he's very quickly over his head. So i am so they ended up. Finding there's another person on the crew though captain is there. He's found in a fridge. Just huddled over a bottle of jack. Yeah as scully will point out. Ironically ended up saving him. Yeah because i guess i mean. We'll find out in a bit but the water is what's actually going the water i guess. This is a form of like montezuma's revenge by the norwegian version. Yeah exactly ericsson's revenge. Yeah so i guess that Barkley had been drinking alcohol so he hadn't been drinking the water. You're basically so basically. His habits ended up saving his life. Short amount of time. It kept him alive longer than the others by. Yeah they find him and he basically tells them what did he say. He says the whole was leading the ad they've found they saw mysterious light in the middle of the night. Like a fire. That stopped everything. This again turns out to be another red herring especially after watching colony when there was a ufo crash or whatever in the water you would estimate. Was that but unless this was the thing that made the the water might have been but like they don't really delve into it so i. I don't know it's unclear but time is a ticking. Four one as we get this when olafsson gets revealed as well we are setting the stage and the stakes. Come in now because scully and moulder are starting to look a little long after they basically. What's his face dies. Barklay dies and then they capture olafsson. They have they're trying to question him. And then tron time starts beating them up because he killed his first may and like okay guys. Let's let's just calm down is that we're gonna get some rest because everyone's really tired and they all go to sleep and they all take a little nap and when they wake up their old. Yeah i mean that's also that's often what happens whenever we nap. We always wake up a little bit older. Yeah i definitely. Don't but i guess you. I guess not as old as the way that they look. I did write that skews the l. I never age number. You are only young. Thank you are the fountain of youth. I did note that as much as i like gillian. Anderson's make better than david companies. Old school kind of looks like a witch. Yeah yeah she has a very pointy nose to begin with so they definitely don't do any favors here. Yeah so scully is trying to come up with her own reasoning. And this is you comes in with some. I mean the first of what's going to be all hottest scientific. She's just trying really hard to make it like make sense than yes duffin. So the what she reasons though is that there is you know metallic source like possibly meteor rock that fell from the sky in the ocean. That is triggering. An electromagnetic reaction in our bodies. It not a bad thing free radicals and oxidises the body which is usually what ages the body. It's just happening at a much faster pace because the electromagnet magnetism is exciting. the process. yeah so if what's happening to them is that they're aging. It's not a bad theory But they're not chambrun. Listen i am far from a medical professional. It seemed to make sense early. She said it with enough conviction to we watching this episode. I was like. I couldn't act like i remembered that it was the water to an extent but at the same time i was like watching it with you hit the water and then like i was watching you. And you're like oh okay and then it was like oh no no. This was the fun part of this episode. Is that ironically enough. Even though we stayed in the same place it was kind of a journey out alongside. And that's these i like these episodes. These one ones that are more of like a scientific mystery or like something's happening the paranormal and they have to kind of figure it out. And it resolves itself in one fell swoop of an episode which is satisfying so we essentially divided up into two groups. Here right mulder and scully decide to investigate the rest of the ship to to find out. What else is there about the cause things are. And then we get our olafsson in trondheim moments were olafsson is able to bargain for his freedom in exchange for a secret but mulder and scully. You're gonna find out that secret as well in that. They find out that there is a that everything was in the water. Yeah and there's an uncontaminated water supply via the sewage system that was keeping olafsson and his men alive and d. age slash non salty. And we see that trondheim is found out about that as well but drinking out of the toilet doggy style. Drink it out of the toilet. I'm but i also think that olafsson is just like like i'm young. I look fine so you have to believe me. Okay yeah i mean. I guess again getting scared at that point because he will. He's he's starting to get all like starting he's starting to get wrinkly as well so i think you're you're even though he's a salty dog of a pirate ironically enough not salty in this episode. Yes you you listen to have. Because i did think for a second that all of them was going to be an alien alien always makes you think about that kind of stuff. Is that trondheim. I can't remember kill all of sudden onscreen or offscreen. Remember either way on you for that kind of stuff. Either way moulder comes back and he says oh no. He escaped while i was asleep. Points out now. The rope was cut he and not not. It's like how that happened buddy but either way. Maybe it's just because modern skull. You're too tired and they haven't watched matlock yet. They leave their starting to shake they say. Okay we're we're going to let bygones be bygones for right now and this is when scully finally in one. The final act of the episode comes to the proper conclusion basically. There's incredibly high level of salt in everyone's bodies and the salt has essentially like the wall stuff in the water has catalyzed these bodily fluids rapid cellular damage which is also part of the aging process. Yeah and they're not sure how it like. Nobody knows how it got on board. Nobody's sure who what contaminated the water by it. It's isolated to this boat as of right now and while the three of them are the only ones that are left. And there's certainly feeling it. Moulders probably feeling the worst as scully points out. I think because he was so seasick. Yeah or there. He was certainly dehydrated more so than the other keita's already dehydrated so when he got this contaminant in him that dehydrate him further further. He's extra now he's extra extra sure raising me and trondheim takes this as a sign of weakness telling scully. We don't need to give them anything not the first sign that he's like a week moralistic human-like it's a. It's another sign that he's somebody who will always put himself. I so okay if moulders clearly he's not gonna make it so let's let's stop giving him. The water will die. Let's give ourselves a better chance you know. And it's i mean. It's sort of the the charlie principal right like the one or save leader. Save the world exactly. Yeah exactly and i believe it was the peter portrayal was the one at the. Maybe that was hero. That was one of the lever. No trauma numbers is being a little bit of a jerk about this directly in front of moulder. Let moulder die. Yeah and i get where he's coming from. But no like no. This poor shot moulder trying to rest. Conserving his bodily fluids. And trump is just glaring at this media. As he's like shaking trondheim eventually decides screw this. If she's just going to protect moulder. I'm out on my own. He locks himself in that shed that often was essentially decides. The the sewer system of the boat decides to bogart all the water from self. Yeah so he's going to drink out of the toilet water forever and so scully. Good on scully. Selling like a manic episode and she rips through the ship taken every form of water to firing diver. Ask right. She gets a snow globe. She gets the the scene gets the lemon juice. Yeah she gets all the liquids she can find. She combines them into one jar she says this is what they can stay alive on his secret. Sauce yeah ill it's disgusting. I wonder what that does taste like. Yeah what do you think. Water like the water. I dunno murky in a snow globe murky. No it's clear i mean. I don't think it's actually water. I think it was like. I think it's part water but it's probably got some form of alcohol in it. Yeah exactly so. I mean it's like this is like alas case scenario worst-case scenario the dale survive. If they drink this said either way moulder is refusing. He he claims okay. Scully you drink the water you as a woman you have a longer. Life expectancy you can retain water. More part of me is also like i don't wanna drink that disgusting. I didn't have to drink. I think he also sees tron trondheim was saying that. He's much worse off in that he can save scully. He wants to this very sacrificial when it comes to scully martyr by older marver moulder murder. But i mean listen. Nobody's drinking that. You know disgusting thing at the end of the day because the ship shakes breaking apart breaking apart right now because it's gone so corroded and i think we've got to talk about in the beginning when they like touched the they touch the ship and it's like basically looks like blind because it's so rusted because barkley claims the ship is bleeding and they thought it was like some sort of just like a way of talking about the ship but it actually is bleeding because it's so rusted disgusting exactly and nobody got a big old boat band date so it's just bleeding out. The poor boat. Banding will vote by one of the first aid kit and get the big boat bent whereas they call them these days boop boop badges. Yeah but trondheim is going to be getting a lot of badgers. Yeah maybe just cpr because he always a fun moment right when the guy who gets hoisted by his own petard. Here you'd love to say that petard fun phrase. Thank you shakespeare. you're all good. He's home me. Wow now this is what. I've learned today that my my wife channels the spirit of shakespeare channel. Good sound a fact they love what basically because the ship breaks. Basically the room like springs a leak. Right knee i mean the whole is like it very much. I know about boats unlimited two titanic and the whole is breaking it sprung a leak and the ship is sinking. And you can imagine that the norse gods are like. Oh you'll onto walter. Here's no no no. No that's allowed. What norwegian accent the one from broza and listen. Dad takes place norway. I guess it does. But now it takes place in erin dow. Oh yes i apologize. Great land of air dell. I forget it's nestled right in there right in the middle of europe but basically trondheim dies because the sewage pipe bursts. The room starts to fly. He can't get out drowns. Yeah good for him. Water water everywhere too. Much to drink for for trondheim. So i mean. Mulder and scully are really left with no option. Yeah they just have to like sit there and they're just talking about how like at this point like they're like facing death. Yeah moulder as a really interesting. You would think that someone who is usually as calm as fox vulgar would be like it's time to go. It's my time to go but he's almost cursing the circumstances saying it's not fair. Yeah he has more to do. He's upset because it's like he hasn't discovered everything he hasn't found the truth and he is like he's pretty not into this. I'm assuming he was also saying it's not fair. Why do we have to die with this much. Bad makeup on may may look like somebody beat me up several times over very flaky but it is interesting because scully uses this to make a call back to her one breath experience. Are- says i know firsthand that we have nothing to fear when it's over. I could've walked into that light but for many reasons i decided to turn away. But i had a pretty good time in that afterlife. When she was having her near-death experience she saw her father he told her it was all. Okay and you know. She brought that back with her and he never. She never told him that so now she's telling him and that it will make him feel better but then he passes out he passes out and so now we get the voice over of gillian anderson doing her little journal writing. Yeah which i love. And she tells of fun. Nor sludge. And i'm not sure if this is true or not about face. The end of the world will not come. In a huge apocalyptic event in olmsted be a slow methodical blanket of snow. Norse mythology that. That i'm sure that false somewhere and i know wolf named skull would eat the sun causing i guess another ice age otherwise known as our dog lily. Yeah i forgot to tell you we actually. That's our dog. We own a wolf name. Her name is skull slashed lily lilly. He's from more like civilian her dated a name but she's gonna devour the world also some real life stuff this past week. It has warmed up a bit on the east coast and our dog has wanted to spend every coe tiniest little green space in the back of our house And it's like a backyard. makeshift backyard. That we by definition. Yeah we with the yard in the back of our house and we've put a little fence up and so every five seconds she wants to go out there and just sniff sniff. My theory is i think she's looking at that. Sun alma makes soon people to me. So i liked this though. I thought this was a great little scene. And i also felt like it it resonated. I dunno from an audience standpoint. I was like into it. I think it's also you know not to get too timely with things. But i do think the climate change skull right that when the end comes it will not be in an instant but instead with a series of progressive over time. Yeah it's very existential for sure. X-files essential but it seems placed. This feels teams. Like scully passes out as well. There's this really fun shot where you know At a certain point in the episode. Listen we just need to hang in for a while. The navy knows where we went off to. Because i know the modern scully essentially once again. Some if you've heard this before disobeyed skinner or did tell them about this and went off on their own but they just see him he'd find out eventually people after us so we we have essentially twenty four hours to get ahead of them and twenty four hours later. Basically the navy shows up. There's this really interesting shot where you see them in the background. Starting they're like older and scully. Who are both passed out in the foreground. It's just like their figures but next to seen is scully wakes up in the hospital bed and here less wrinkle and also the doctor then turned her away back in the day welcomed with open arms. Basically saying thank you for writing this in your journal. What to give to cure you and moulder. Yeah exactly and she basically says like he was a little worse off but you know they. They put him into some wet synthetic hormones and synthetic hormones and electrolytes. Yeah and then like i guess. The other thing was like dialysis. Yeah exactly so. Scully says alright. Well we gotta go get this show. Now that i'm back into my youthful self. We got to get this ship. There's some crazy stuff going on. And the doctor says you don't understand. The ship sank underwater. It's come forever. So that's it and then the episode ends with a sound that we'd actually been hearing the entire time. It actually sounded a lot like the law and order come shown it's a it's a. I think what it is is like the sound of the hall like that creaking hall. But you made an interesting note that you always thought that it was more representative of the sound of the wolf's skull slashed lily knocking out the door ready to eat that. I think it's supposed to be like ominous in that way. You know it's still out there. Yeah that's that's an interesting idea as well right that this was a one off episode but it also implies that yes. Mulder and scully were saved. They didn't die but they didn't exactly they didn't. They didn't achieve much like they found out about something that they didn't have any way to. Now save so. it's just out. There is happens in an episode in season one that we didn't watch called the ice where they go sexual very very similar episode. There's like a parasite in the ice and they find it and they're they're able to escape and get picked up eventually. But it's it's another instance were there. There's nothing they can do about it. Yeah so all right well. Let's move into something a bit darker and a bit lighter in soft light before we do angela. A quick break here. A word from our sponsors. This episode is brought to you by comcast because of covid nineteen internet. Traffic has spiked but comcast is prepared. They've created a powerful network with one simple purpose to keep customers connected since twenty seventeen comcast has invested twelve billion dollars to grow and evolve a smart reliable network and now with many of us working learning and entertaining at home their coverage has helped millions of people stay connected when they need it. Most learn more at comcast dot com slash network. All right we are back and let's bring to light soft light. Which is a game changer. In a number of ways as we mentioned last week this episode was written. By vince gilligan. Who will go on to write a number of episodes. He'll go on. I believe to show run the lone gunman spin often. Obviously he is more well known for his creations breaking bad and Better call saul. But i also do believe this is the first episode where the person who is given the writing credit was not typically on the x. files writing staff at the time. Oh no yes called. The story is essentially that vince. Gilligan's agent was related to chris. Carter okay and so essentially because again. That's hollywood said. Hey can you let them know. I have this writing idea. And so vince gilligan's initial idea was. What if there was this story about a man who essentially has a shadow who operates independently of him and of is a serial killer and chris. Carter was intrigued by the idea. Of course the idea gets retooled. Mostly due to cost cutting. Yeah animate a peter pan esque. Does that come from peter pan because there are like there are more dark. Only mulder and scully have chased down with soap to stick it on. Yeah there's dark interpretations of that story to that like the shadow is like a malevolent force more or less than melissa. Sent in some way crossover. Yeah disney crossover. But yeah so i think that. That's not like an uncommon thing. Yeah but essentially this was the first time that they didn't turn to the writer's room. I mean vince. Gill and getting is going to be brought on as a writer and much more future episodes but at this moment this was hey. This guy is pitching an idea for the x. files will bring it on. It's a good idea. Yeah and so. Let's let's start here at the very beginning as we get. I mean speaking of the chungchong got very law and order. Sure eric off brand music and we also got like in the hotel like this camera angle. That was like so high above the ground. I was like. Are we supposed to be tall person. Exactly the point of this basketball player. No this is the tobacco executive. I guess so. I guess He's unwinding after a long day of course. His referee is disrupted by tony. Shalhoub himself in all his glory. I love tony shalhoub. I don't think or said that. On a on a podcast. I think he's such a chameleon like he can play so many different types of people and this is like this is probably the most similar to like among type bible like very neurotic and very like like jazz even be a lot of sort of a less tired version of his character from the marvelous. Mrs maisel yeah exactly so here. He comes in his hair is out of whack will. Yeah because he basically is like a living like a homeless man at this just like running around away from his shadow bunnies bouncing off the walls at this point so i was a little confused by this cold open because he he knocks on the door across the hall from this soon to be victim. And it's basically saying to this guy morris gala and is dead. It's my fault and then this other guy who we were following it goes to the door to see what's happening. Yeah so here's what happened tony. Who went to go. See somebody in the same apartment building But they weren't there and the person across the hall answer. The door and his shadow weighed him. Yeah so it's like this guy. Morris i i think the locations confused so basically the the guy that he gets killed nobody like yeah exactly and there is no body at the end of it. Right this artifact. And maybe that's why they couldn't animate an independent shadow is because they spent a lot on the effect of this episode where what looks like an electrified worm hole in the floor and just swallows him up. Yeah i guess what we find out later is that he basically his shot. He's become dark matter and in the building blocks of everything in the universe so basically tears you apart. Yeah it's it's really weird science. It doesn't need to make sense. That's just what it is in this episode right. But i know that spencer who is sort of like our science correspondent. I say he wrote in about how the rapid aging. I think to your point like it doesn't actually aid us. I don't know why they were doing. The old person voice. It was more so dehydration. He basically wrote about how yes you know. Essentially this shadow could be like a black hole but usually it would then suck in every people. I don't think that it sucking then. I think it's taking disintegrating you spaghetti. Fixation is what the name of the process. Nice and gruesome. It's like if you ever got into contact with the black black hole. It takes every cell in your body. Yeah give impresses it and stretches and yeah disgusting. But i want spaghetti of course you. Do you love spaghetti to love spaghetti. Meal going through a black hole. A black hole person bowling gays so now we find out that this is the third person who disappeared in a similar way and mulder. And scully get brought into this one again. Not through an x file. But they're a little bit a networking calms. Kelly ryan who is one of scully's former students who stay to first name last name Now and now she worked for richmond. Spencer brought up an interesting point. That detective ryan is sort of like of sliding doors version. Really where basically. yeah like. What could have happened yeah. We're we're scully. If she had remained on that pass you could have been working for richmond. Pd there's also the whole dynamic wear you know sh- kelly ryan doesn't have a partner sort allows her to become more subjugated by other people whereas has become emboldened by mulder's presence well and so you know she's a former student of scully's at what at quantico i'm assuming throw yeah i guess so because she's not she's not on track to maybe she is on track to be in the fbi. Maybe this is just like her. First job out of the academy can refer directly to the fbi and like kelly ryan just go like later in life. How old is she supposed wrong. Young so she she must have been like in school and like just graduated this year. I gave her because it's her first case. Right kelly ryan and scully i dunno. They're not the same actresses. Don't look that different in. Oh no but they're definitely. This is supposed to be scully's in her thirties. In this girl's like maybe twenty three Definitely right out of school so it was like you know one of scully's students and that's why she remembered her if maybe but i also don't think that we know enough about how you get recruited. Fbi really say things become abundantly clear at this point. I don't know what we get a little bit of a red herring here the very beginning where they mentioned. Oh you know this guy is a tobacco company executive. We find out later on okay. This other victim was the backup company. Executive i do love moulder immediately. Tobacco company executive so an executive. Somebody who worked there essentially says we'll know everyone in richmond. Basically works for cigarettes. Yeah i it's purely still he's like oh yeah you're right and also a fun little fake out here or at least a callback. Her here no way no way. In no way out of this room a scully immediately goes for the vents. Yeah ryan says. Do you really think someone could squeeze through there. And she says she's basically yes yes and why to do not want to talk about that again. Nearly got kidnapped but the thing that they do is they find the burn marks on your bed and moulders able to to map it out no way to make. It seem like okay. This guy was reaching for the doorknob and then cut zapped into the floor. And he's like wouldn't you be standing here if you're looking at people like if kelly ryan is just sitting there like and so as they're figuring things out you also want to make note of something you mentioned we were not like scully's hair he'll also i i. It sucks because i feel like she has such great like beautiful red hair and some emphasizes they blow it out and tuck it under. And i'm just not a big fan of that like flip under look and that's like that's my personal lucy from peanuts. Yeah it's just a little dated confusing as to why she needed that kind of heroin like previous episode. Like i feel like her hair in the first episode of the x files was more modern than it is. Now yeah maybe retrograde and maybe her hair went back in time maybe -nificant so as they're figuring things out moulder throws up the idea of a spontaneous human combustion. I didn't know this. But apparently spencer pointed out that apparently there was like an episode involving spongy. Ask combustion back in season one. Yes there was and it's not a very good episode. But it's it's a fun little callback right to. Here's some things that we did in the past. Yeah and moulder will do this scully. Often where he'll say like he'll like be like oh this maybe it's this and she's just like enough with that like it's never that starts this episode off very weird because they end up going to the apartment of this victim. And he's like oh scully. Can you spare a prophylactic asking. Hey gimme a glove. So i can take off this lightbulb. You're not into that. But listen i'm known to have my mind in the gutter. But when you say prophylactic. I'm thinking about something different but i know but i think that that one didn't bother me as much as the first scene when he's with the detective in the apartment of the first victim or the department of the first victim and he's just like running around like check as well like giving barking orders man's blaming detective agency. This young girl. And i was like not into it. Well i think what gives him a little bit of a big head is he's. He's building his utility belt. And he's got that little to find the fingerprints on the lightbulb. Oh yeah and in the second location. But i felt like he was just like very high up on his x-files exactly but it's weird alien horse or maybe it's a horse. Yeah oh. I know how to deal with this and i mean. Don't get me wrong. Moulder knows his shed. He's very good detective. He's good at his job by. I do feel like he was a little man's plenty here. He could have been a little less teacher moment. Exactly scully's the teacher not more so they do at least get to the bottom of there being commonality amongst all three victims aside from the cancer sticks of it all all three of them some at some time during the day that they died cross paths with the train. Yeah the rich and train station and so that your sumed that the the whoever did this might be train station worker. Not exactly on the money but at least they're in the right location. I mean they got to like really. That was great investigatory part because we do go to the train station and here is she'll lube. He's looking rough their bags under his eyes. The essentially look strung out right now. Yeah exactly and the reason we find out later is that he's at the he's at the train station because that's where there is soft light which is interesting. I if lying well. You're you're a photographer. Can you describe this soft versus hard light. Yeah so hard. Light is a direct light. it's like a spotlight Soft light is diffused light. So it's through some things so think about like when you've seen me doing photography or like a lamp shade or something like the light isn't directly. It's diffused through something so like fluorescence are often diffuse lights because there's something on top of it to diffuse the light so there's no way for there's less likelihood that they'll be a shadow because there's no direct light on his person as opposed to the sun which doesn't have anything in front of it. Yeah about shadow when there are clouds the light is diffused interesting. And then when there's no someone gets eaten by our dog then there's no light. Yeah and that's just darkness. Those just darn. Like i sold in the darkness obscures all sins by. Yeah so i mean the. The point is basically that the light if he's under direct light that we have shadow but if he's in somewhere where there's diffused light than there's not going to be a shadow a little bit of like let's a soft light and diffuse light the basically in this episode of the same thing. Yeah and it's less about a peter pan thing. Maybe vince killing its initial pitch. Maybe more of a jekyll-hyde thing. Yeah there's this side he can't can tell that he can't control and so he's going to leave the station and i don't know i don't know why cops run into him like was he also those that are on him. Yeah i remember so. Basically moulder tells kelly that she needs to get cops to the richmond station and the joy for today so they followed him out of the richmond station and they said okay. We see this guy loitering outback. They they say they were like oh we. We have a spot on a guy loitering outback. We're going to go check it out. And then they die because basically chiluba doing voivode actually a couple times. I feel like the positive like pleased. I don't wanna do this. Yeah wanna hurt you. Oftentimes these people are like struck with maladies or issues that they didn't ask for sometimes. It's the other way around where they get them and then becoming evil and there's episode with this kid and he b basically becomes lightning and he starts using it. Yeah it's like a he recently by lightning becomes lightning and starts using it to like get back at his bullies like ooh. So it's like you can go either way but in this case shalhoub is out there. Just he doesn't want to hurt anyone but there are there are shadows and but now the stakes. This case have increased significantly. Because now whether he wanted to or not tony. Shalhoub has become a cop killer. Yes and also that puts kelly in a bit of a pickle with her superior because also there was a little bit of utah stuff going on where she wanted to console mulder and scully. She was put on this case because essentially nobody else wanted it because they felt like it was unsolvable the now that there is blueblood on the hand this person now her superior we're going to get involved and if they find out that she's essentially working with the fbi. That's not. oh yeah that's because it's outside their jurisdiction so not only. Will she get in trouble but mulder and scully will be and the best of situations either speech. They never spoke about twenty four before we get to fund twenty four estimate here molin scully dive into the security tapes at the train station. Of course motor. Does the you magnify that. By two hundred firm where it's like sudan hands enhanced zooming enhance from bob's burgers. It doesn't do that. Yes yeah listen. I'm sure the richmond security file and the guard is is fine at his job. But i don't think technology but allow you to. I think that there were low up two hundred percent and also clarify it to see clarify though of polarity magnetics on his could. But i don't know this place would have that on twitter twinstar. But he's able to see the logo on tony. Show lubes jack. In at this point. I think scully also says that. She thinks that he's mentally ill because all he's doing is staring at the floor. So this is where. We're going to get our our textbook mulder and scully conflict of the episode. Right we've experienced a couple times or moulder says there's something weird going on scully tries to find a scientific reasoning in this case. It's because she feels like he has a history with mental illness and so therefore it's more so behavioral than days from a piece of phenomena but they are able to luckily loop has been walking in with his lettermans jacket from polarity magnetics. Because i guess the situation we find out later is the accident happened and he just like ran yes. So let's talk about that because we got a player. Magnetics we find out. Tony shalhoub real name. It's just dr chester banton And this is interesting because when we were we saw the scene where the shadow had swallowed up the two cops. I sort of like jokingly asked you owe a meta human giggling to myself because he is literally there. Were so many for anyone who doesn't know we're talking about we're talking about the flash which is basically that's the premise of the flashes explosion and it creates the flash as well as other humans their titled meta humans that have special powers. Yeah so it's pretty bananas that ends up happening. Here and brandon doesn't really become a hero villain. I think just more so tragic figure totally traumatized by this situation. By the way that it happens is and it's a little bit of like a the flash combined with another dc project. Like the story of dr manhattan. Yeah this is the guy who was obsessed despite this company doing some pretty normal stuff with magnets like get some pretty cool. Levitating trains people movers. Maybe making people age via free radicals in their system. Yes like bullet. Trains was the bhagwat but his whole other mission because he wanted to find out about the building blocks of balancing. That wasn't enough for him. Particle train from new york to la day in the half hour. What's what's train made made up. And so i guess one day he was doing an experimental particle. Accelerator left something in there and like accidentally locked himself in and then got hit with this wave. That has essentially turned although i went to dark matter. I think it's fair to say. Maybe he didn't accidentally locked himself in there. Because i think that we find out later in the episode how suspicious his buddy with the glasses right and basically selling him to the government. Well and i also think his partner at least claims that even after it happens then you have this kind of scary hero. Shimano burned into the wall that apparently he was relatively calm. 'cause i guess i mean this is if nothing happened. And he's also he's been studying to like find out the truth and a molder like way and he. I guess found the answer. And i guess once you got hit with the particle accelerator and he was Fine it was just shadow. That was an issue right. Exactly like he did not. He ended up turning out fine. It's just whatever shadow is cast onto any sort of surface. Is the real problem. Yeah so anyway basically. He's and this. His partner tells them that you know he had. They haven't he hasn't seen him in five weeks. They typically go back to the train station. Try to find him. So i will say tony. Shalhoub was getting his cardio. Lots of rodney's running and he's also but not running in a running type of running lincoln like desperately flailing his young fleeing so he's definitely he's he's out there. He's trying to get away. Yeah and so modern scully. Running tim boulder catches wise. They were at the train station. They figured it out. Yeah they're basically in the exact same scenario that the cops are in said. They figured out the economist soft light shoots out the lights in the parking garage and banten is relieved probably not so relieved when he's institutionalized. Well i think he is just relieved that somebody believes him and like that he. Maybe we'll get some help. So they bring them to this institution and he is under soft light so he feels okay. Okay enough to light up a cigarette. I did wonder we talked about this. And who is to say whether cigarettes are allowed in mental institutions. I couldn't remember things. They were allowed anywhere. But that's now wasn't them. Yeah well this was. Sort of the transitional period right. This has been linked. The truth campaign was really starting. Hey cigarettes can really you know do stuff to you and cigarette. Smoking man certainly didn't help thing now but basically though benton is safe right now he opens up to moulder how he's happy to be behind bars and a major speaker at least in a padded room because basically he's like yeah. The shadow could escape. And also i think the government might be tracking me. Because they're going to do the brain suck. Yeah so i had wondered previous to this moment why he hadn't gone back to the labyrinth lake because basically they find out later that the he 'cause he escapes and they're like where does he go and he's going live trying to get rid of it but why didn't he do that earlier. But i guess it's the government thing like he thinks he's being trailed and that's why he's like going to the train station and like going to play says all that stuff. Yeah it's it's an interesting thing because the initial draft of the script because we're going to get into xs involvement which really comes eleventh-hour shirt as ex and the whole government ending was not in the script. Initially but i think. Chris carter and vince gilligan. At all felt that bringing them being would create a legitimate fear from barton's bans end and like some actual dangerous so that there was some show itself but also the danger in oh the government is actually wanting to utilize his power set as it were while and i think that that that aspect brings an ending to the episode that sticks with you. I think it's one of the reasons i like. Think about this episode. Nego- yeah such a great episode. It's like when i was watching. And i was like wait. The sodas fine like it's not that great but like it's it's good doing the rounds really well. I didn't think leniently was not an x. Files fan and he said that he really wants to get involved with the episode. Because it felt very twilight zone and the the ending especially resonates with that emma. And we'll get into that but is getting involved here because moulder calls on him under hearing with banten said and despite the fact. That scully thinks just the rantings of a lunatic. Essentially he says. Let me check in on x. here suffice to say surprise surprise. These are not on the best terms. I have no idea if you remember this angela x. Makes reference saying like oh. Last time i stuck my neck for you. I expose myself some your associates. Is that a reference to a previous episodes the referenced him exposing himself to scully and skinner. Okay so that's that's the reference to. When she was trying she tries to contact him and then it's to beat the shit out of them in an elevator. I think so. I just wanted to make sure that there weren't any episodes right way that i don't think so. But you know moulder eireann cleaned. Kinda i dunno. It's a question of whether he ends up and he's over it yet. But it's a question as to whether he ends up screwing over banton here or not because you would imagine because after this essentially tells banton like hairy is the government looking after this guy. I want to confirm this. These oh tear or next is who the hell are you. Don't call them an area for that. He asks him where he's held. I'd i don't care pipe play. Where is he yeah exactly. It was very weird the code to get in. Yeah so in the middle of the night you have a couple of goons break into the institution like dry tie bent enough to take him away so they and they shut the power off in the way that they become suspicious to mulder and scully that they find that the power is only been. Shut off to that building. You have to have in virginia power co and you'd have to do it at a time when you knew you could do it. And so they're like this is very suspicious from a government standpoint right so the The question that i still have from this is was the government always looking into people like banton or did moulder unintentionally call attention to banten. I think it was a little of both because at the end of the episode when they're experimenting on abandoned the guy that's doing the experiment says it would have been great to have his partner tail so they know they've probably known about his experiments and when they when they found out that the like they're keeping track of him because he's doing like experiments dark matter and then moulder he's them into the fact that you know they something's happened that's like proved it. Maybe it's an idea of this was a long term project comes much more short-term yeah once they find out oh no people are onto him. Yeah but like clearly. They've been keeping track of him. I mean they knew who he was and his partner so so banton they unintentionally lead banton go. They'll has escaped once more. I think now that he's no longer feel safe to shin. He says all right time to finally had back to the start of this whole thing. Let's go back to polarity magnetics. And basically he finds his partner. I guess lives in this lab. I'm assuming i guess basically demands to say i'm going to get hit with the power of particle accelerator gas completely. He's like we're gonna fix this either. It's either gonna say we're gonna fix this or like just kill me. Yeah well by killing him fixed. Exactly like i'm the monster. The world is better off without me. Yeah he's i think he's planning on dying here really sad moment though where officer kelly ryan cam. And he's forced to kill her. He's i don't wanna do this and she won't back down and he just steps forward i feel bad. I mean listen. This is far from the first copies of this episode. But there's there's an essence of humanity here of. She really wasn't innocent bystander. She was trying her best. You had to shed places to go again for him it was. I have to get rid of myself. And you're standing in the way wrong place wrong time. Yeah so he thinks that he has found compadres and his partner but it turns out. I don't know how long this has been happening. But it turns out saying about. Yeah that his partner was is working in line with ex and the government. At least now he is. It could have been earlier than that by now. He's definitely working with him because he basically says i could. I could turn it on. But i'm not going to lock them in the Celebrator but he doesn't push the button especially like got him trapped in there we'll for the authorities to take you away the authorities say were already here and kills him but they don't kill him. I thought they kill gay. So this guy and the partner in the head and so the guy in the chair is the partner. Yeah and when he disappears in the particle accelerator. You think basic moulder says like oh. I don't think that he That was him right. Because there's footage that mulder and scully find of passed out man in this office chair. Getting hit with the wave and another wave disappearing. Yeah and my belief is that x killed the partner. He shot him right there at the computer. And then just sort of like did the bait and switch the bait and switch and then took him whereas you think you're meant to think that maybe access good for a second and he is definitely not a moulders caught wise onto that. It's a break-up moulder says we don with the l. You are now my ex e x now exactly and so an ex know he'd lies but doesn't light here right he tells motor just so you know. I didn't kill banton which could be in multiple ways. Yeah you did not kill him. You know he did he. He killed his partner which is not banton. He could also argue if that was abandoned and the charity could be like. I didn't kill him. I let him die die ultimately. You actually didn't kill him. You took him someplace to be studied and tortured and the rest of his face is maybe that was also like reverse reverse psychology right he. I know you're doubting this to let me say things in a way. That's actually true. But you know his ally. He sucks bad will i. I'm intrigued to find out because spoiler alert berm. We're gonna end season two next week. I'll be intrigued to see if the x. Saga their red extends. If you will. But he'll make we get final scene here which is so sad. Excellent really great job from tony. Shalhoub turns out x. has taken bantu in. he's being studied. He seems to be absolutely miserable. He's basically stuck in this case like on wall. Just lights are flashing which sounds torturous to begin with let alone if you are someone who has this shadow haunting you and there's this really just honest you're jerking shot of a single tear rolling down. Tony shalhoub face. I will say overall also at the end of this. I really loved from a cinematography perspective. Use of light Everything from like focusing on the shadows to the flashing light was using so many inventive ways in this episode. And it's one of those things where almost like the doctor who episode blink things on such an unconscious action or piece of our life. Yeah and really make you focus on it and create evil things around it. It's a really cool idea to get gas spine. Taylor's that your brain readers this kind of fairy tale or like i guess you could call it like a folklore thing where it's said that the inbetween spaces are where like goblins and ferries and things like that. So like the umbra ya. And so i found when i was younger being kind of scared of like doorways and windows and midnight and like those. Were the examples like when midnight would happen. Like i would get scared because i was your worst day of the year. Yup i don't think i was ever away when i was young but like if i over was i'd be like oh dang they're coming for me like i would find myself like running through doorway really quickly looking but it's like a like a fairy tale type thing we're like that's where they live and they're gonna get and so. I think that's a very similar like you think about things that you never think about and doctor who have a blink. It's blinking and if you blink you'll go you're dead you know. Yeah so like you said. This ending really does stick with you and i and i agree that i. It does lift the overall quality of the episode. Which can be a little especially if you think about it scientifically speaking. It's a little murky. It's very wraps up really quickly. And it's a confusing as to what actually happened. It's also very star trekkie to me whereas something weird happen to them. They try to create some odd scientific explanation for it. Hey i don't hate it. I mean. I think it's more so lifted by the performance of lube and the ending is very tragic. It doesn't feel like something we've experienced an x files episode so far they haven't experienced at least that i have it. Don't speak blow. i'll try not to shakespeare. Let's talk about the week here for a second going. Back to dot com. Do you have a spook of the week. Who's acting the most spooky in your opinion I guess all if sadness mice book of the week there. I think he's probably the most suspicious. Most spooky as it comes to like doing spooky things. Yeah i'm gonna go with. I'm gonna go with captain. Barkley barkley i think. He looks super spooky with the makeup. For some reason he talked very old. They all did for some for some strange reason. So i think just the initial image him and the fact that he seems spooked makes him the spook in my opinion sauce light. It's got to be banton right. Yeah for sure. Or both spooky and spooked. Yeah he's he's both simultaneously. Spooky and spooked. Yeah exactly so. He's the rare recipient and give her in this case. So i'm assuming much more spooky nece to come in our next double header of a week here on the bloom files because we're going to do what we did last season and i think we're gonna make this tradition for the most part is we are going to do a double header or reclose up one season and open up the next one. So we're going to be doing season two at the soda. Twenty-five the finale honest sausage sure and then the season three premiere the blessing way. You said that learn perfect. Listen i'm now. I'm just waiting for like every week. Especially if we're doing multiple episodes for there to be one episode that i have a lot of trouble pronouncing it and then another one to completely fine so i'm fine fifty percent each and every week here. Yeah and so. I think this is probably the way to go and i think we were talking about it that it's going to be hard for you to know what's going on because so much happens in season finale and season premiere as in the x. files as far as the arcos of the whole the whole series. So i think it's just to be necessary for us to do and also Fun yeah so feel free to watch those episodes alongside s. You can send us. I mean we try to describe to the best of the ability for those everyone all right. Mike bloom peer pressure. And you all have. Free will very very happy. You took your free will.

I mean that's what happens when you skip a bunch episodes Yeah but i've been really loving the picking and choosing that we've been doing so far thumbs for the for the list that you made being much more fun to come.

The Hitman

"Hello I'm Kate Raft and I'm here to tell you about a brand new podcast called celeb- news ride home. It's daily it's fifteen minutes long long and it's hosted by me if you're a person who cares about the sometimes ridiculous but actually always fascinating world celebrity gossip then. I'm here to scratch that. Little brain managed with top stories every single day. Searcher PODCAST APP and subscribe today to the Celeb- news ride home. PODCAST from workhouse can act in a J Benza vein law. He likes to be walked on a leash. Play really dirty. Kinky sex tapes is a UH the guy. Put the COP in the peacock network. Okay Bitch Hey everybody a j Benza. Here for fame bitch. This is your podcast for December eighteenth. Nineteen th my speech is a little bit mangled. It's because we're dealing with his toothache. I know I shoulda gotten sick. I should be in a dentist chair. You know should that have been there two weeks ago I keep putting it off especially this time of year Blah Blah Blah but Just Punch advil. So it's not quite as bad. Let me get this. Let me get this out of my system before the pain comes back. Hey listen finally boys and girls. We've got ourselves a medical examiner that that apparently nobody. Nobody put money in his hand. Nothing happened because we found out today that it was an accidental drug overdose that caused the death. Ask of the Marvelous Mrs Mazel after Ryan Tarantino last month member Tarantino. Six year old actor. He played the Comedy Club. MC named Jackie in the Amazon series. And the truth of the matter is this guy should have been written into the show more often because he was the most real after on on the show. I shouldn't say this real. He was so convincing as that guy in the comedy club man. I loved him. And don't get me wrong Rachel. Brosnahan's terrific perfect mismatch Mazel team managers terrific Kevin Pollack Tony Shalhoub. I could go with or without Tony Show every time. I see him in his show. I think he's playing being monk which is a testament to how great he was playing monk but I can't shake monk whenever I see him I can't it be like Jimmy Gandolfini from Sopranos. Anything he did get after. I would always say it's Tony. Soprano Archie Bunker. Alan alda's Hawkeye. Only now do I see Alan Alda on Ray Donovan and I go okay now. He's fucking shrink for Ray Donovan. But for years he was you know he was Hawkeye. I couldn't couldn't do it Any I just think Tarantino was screen screen steeler extraordinaire so we found that he died from an intoxication. The combined effects of fennel heroin cocaine and Valium Valium. And that's a good old fashioned night and a half it's a it's also an example of a very fun guy out probably a very sad guy probably be the tears of a clown syndrome but You know in this town. I've seen it all but having dental in there could make you believe he died accidentally. It's hard to tell. Some people want fennel little bit traces offensive drugs. They used to do before. We've gotten this new fucking killer. Bee from Africa Sentinel wit. You can't even inhale it if you die top cops touch it and I got a handle it gloves on. I don't know man the way they're making these drugs. And he I think most of these festivals coming from China the bad shit like a lot of other crap and Killing people left and right you know who everybody is. Everybody's dying with fence illness system. I listen I take fennel in patch form years ago from my bed back. I had a buddy named nick. Great Guy Gregarious Guy went to the Gulf War. Came back fucked up sinus issues. All sorts of neck pains he said it was Related to all the oil. That was burning in the desert. I don't know but man the. Va gave him bags of drugs. And then you know nick got strong. Nick Had deep relationships with. Opiates like I used to. And it's tough to shake out of that and his life really wasn't full when this happened he had. PTSD from the war didn't have a girlfriend lived with his mom. You know kind of like think sad lived in an apartment and actually like next to his mantra sad sad post war. Not The way veteran should be treated life. At least I had number of jobs television a bit of same here and there so I was coping saw one. Neil Neil Neil. Nick would come over and I'd say you know you got anything to for years. He won't come out. He was like fading away. He just stay home with splitting headaches. Never came out to dinner or menace in our house so unlike him but sometimes it's Nick I really need Germantown from La. My back's killing me. What he got and he come over to the house and pop his trunk and there were bags of drugs begs? You know. I'm not talking shopping bags. Look like prescription drugs from the pharmacy. Like just what do you need we need and I let me try those. It was one of those. He's offensive taxes. I'll take those great you know and my tolerance was way upside put these patches on take them off for hours later and put new ones on and one day I started. You know vomiting like crazy in. I'm overdosing because those patches are twenty four hours at a time you don't take them every foreign replace him. I was just overdosing fennel. Thank God if it was in powder form dead or pill for put it that way but the ship they sending here now so dangerous so I'm not sure what what Tarantino did with the fence that had come in his drugs by accident. audie lying one started. That was in his heroin. I Dunno some guys want because does it get the high that much more precise and that much more powerful and judging from all the drugs he had an system. This guy looks like he knew his way around some drugs for a while. Sixty year old drug abuser said unless we hear differently we find that he was went in his room and locked the door and wanted to die. I don't know I don't think we'll ever know there was no note found so this looks to be like an accidental overdose. But just know this anybody who does that many drugs and I've been a guy like that on occasion occasion. You know you know those nights this. This could be the night this could be tonight. You start by going on my heart attack I need. I need something to take me down. Then you Dan I gotta get back up again and you forget how schedule an hour earlier. I've written notes to tell people this is what happened. You know I I've had I've written like three of those in my life woke up the next morning and I'm still alive so I don't really we'll we'll never really know we'll just know that this guy probably like drugs for a long time and Etowah like I said I know a ton of guys like him in this town especially in his business and he did great work. Gilmore Girls Sopranos a good wife. Donnie BRASCO so many shows shows but when he dropped dead on November second a spokesman for him said at the time that Tarantino had been ill with a heart related rated issue bullshit. Nice try truth of the matter is if Tarantino's family had some money and Power Pole like I dunno Harry Morton's family. Maybe then you've never heard about the drugs in his system today you to believe the poor guy died of a heart issue but people see that list of drugs and they say wow. He was on some kind of bender not necessarily. It's not entirely true the way drug addicts work. It's all about trying to achieve if a particular high and keeping it there for as long as you could manage it you might start off the little cocaine. Then when you feel it's too speedy it gets some heroin your system or some you know whatever else on opiates pill even you out a little bit then at the end of the night. When the party's over you slam some valium in your system? And you call it a night but It's just a terrible seesaw of emotions and decisions. But that's what addicts do you know. When they look all the drugs they bring home home? It's like I got a lot of decisions to make the nights never like. Let me take this drug. Sit back and relax. Maybe for an hour. Don't you think how to how to rearrange the high make you feel terrible terrible they literally call it parachuting down when you WANNA come down from a high. That's too high if you will. It's lot like enough the water's too hot in your bathtub turned cold speaking on and if it gets to to Call you turn the hot Bhagwan until you get the perfect temperature and you know what the longest sitting at bath the what always gets. It's called again so you get more hot more hot little cold more hot. That's what drugs are so long fucking bass that you eventually drowning you know. And maybe he didn't want to be in the bath in the first place.

Love you guys all By the way here is today's explosive explosive story. Believe it or not you know I mean that. Believe it or don't I should say because it is pretty explosive. Yesterday I told told you about rain. Doves the agenda bending model and is a key his youtube confessional video that was on Yesterday's Patriot If you didn't hear it basically he went on. Youtube is the is the girl. That dated rose McGowan At the height of all that me to shit and got involved in the CR Gento mass with the text messages. And all this Kinda Shit. He had a big long confessional youtube video which he decided to talk about all the lies. He's committed going way back to grade school. Here's what I've been told and this is insane but not entirely unbelievable right. Obviously this stuff. Rain uncovered has brought up story all over again about Osceola gentle having that illicit love affair with little Jimmy Bennett when he was seventeen years old underage in Los Angeles Angeles member. This boy was her former Co star in a film and played her son no less and then years go by he grows some hair on his You know what ought needs a little freaky for his mom figure in OSCEOLA Gentlema- freaky Kinda girl. The age difference is not much of a thing anymore. Oh so he makes sure she knows he's hot for her. What does she do? She gets the hotel she tells. You can't wait to be in. His arms. Came in to see you. And they fuck like rabbits K.. And she's a freaky Kinda girl as evidenced by her continuing to date Harvey Weinstein Years After. She says he allegedly raped her. I've gone down this street too many times getting sick of hearing it. I don't want to even go through a too many more times. I know Harvey's trial comes up next month. Tried not to make that had the the the topic of the day every day but Look when a girl meets a rape is mother and then goes can the film festival with him several years after she said she where he raped and she holds his hand on the red carpet. I'm sorry it's not. This is not a rape victim. This this is somebody who didn't like being. The girlfriend. Wanted to get back at him. Whatever I will say after the allegations came down and Harvey went to sex Rehab in Arizona and called me and him and I spoke about a lot of things particularly my involvement with the New York Times? And you know saying when I said we also talked about some of the women who alleged that he raped them and we went down the list. My wife is gone. I can't believe you're doing this. You're GONNA kill you. What do you do I said I have to do is the podcast was just getting off the ground and I said let me do this? I've gotTa do this. This'll jump start the podcast and get everybody interested and it did and and I said I guarantee you. I'll still be friends with harvey after all. This shit goes down I. I can't ask spoke with him in the last year. But I'm sure if I turned quantities there we'll we'll have some heart to hearts whether you guys WanNa hear those are not different story but I want to get down to the bottom of shit any out I said. Let's talk about some of these girls who said said they You raped because let's do it. Let's list and I had my questions too. Don't get me wrong. I know a lot of girls so before we began the first thing. He said that even out of his way to say that you could throw away Osceola Gentleman's name because she was my fucking girlfriend for years and I believe them and most people in the business know that okay. But here's what I'm saying. He reigned of got wind of an article coming down the pipe that was going to come out on. NBC News on NBC News website. kind of a gay a S- slanted website. You gotTA search for it. But it's there reminded. Gay Writer named Alexander Cacao Casale and Randolph knew it was gonNA shed some light on all of her bullshit lies including things like she never attended. UC Berkeley. She never was a firefighter. Firefighter she never went to Paradise. California to help with the relief effort some really long fish story. She told and like I told you yesterday. The lies that she said that she never sold the texts between rcn her having to do with OSCE illicit affair with little Jimmy Bennett. She said she never had anything to do with. TMZ getting those texts but she did. She sold over ten thousand dollars so she came clean with a lot of stuff. And this article is something. That is your gentle participate. Lyn Okay. So she knew it was coming out but following the release of the Youtube Confession. She told him. ABC News it was the first time she heard rain dove admit to sharing the texts with TMZ which she claimed were edited by rain dove to make appear like a Predator acclaim. That reigned up denies. So as you remember our Genta was the girlfriend of Anthony. Bourdain is celebrity chef at the time of his dad. Desk and She said she's still very fragile. And very frightened of rain does and what they are capable of. You could think they means means rain and rose McGowan but they is the proper fucking pronouns. Okay people catch up. He uses cheeses. They then K.. Anyhow so rain confessed to the shit she confessed to to sort of minimize the articles. Impact again me well that enraged ICR they are gentle so much so you ready for this. Here's the big beef the big side of beef of today's show. I always tell you. She's fucking crazy. This is serious. Word that there's been somebody hired by Ossetia too seriously. Fuck Up. Rain doves life and rose McGowan slide. The word I was given was a hitman hired to do what hit men do. I know it sounds outrageous but I I cer gento feels rain and rose really took advantage of her and took away her career and future work she felt entitled to and she's really pissed at Rain Rain Doug because what she originally told Rose McGowan was that you know. I had an affair with low Jimmy Bennett when he was twelve. That wasn't true but when Rose Her dad she she said fuck off. I want nothing to do with her. This is the the height of the metoo sexual allegations sexual Predator Shit. I'm trying to lead this fucking group and I got this idiot. Banging twelve year old boys and she just let her have it and they broke up when I saved broke up their friendship. But I gotta be honest with you. I feel like they had a lesbian relationship. I just do I think. That's a rose's head was at and just my gut anyhow wrong with that. So rose rose McGowan. Felt really used by rain dove and and you know she met real She met rain that night when she went off of that woman at the fucking Barnes and noble book signing New York City member that crazy night. That's when she met rain and she says look this. This girl took advantage of me and use me but you know here we are here we are are the two of them now. Allegedly have a hitman after them and the person told me. The story was very long very very long. I mean I don't think anyone will get killed over the should. I really doubt it but I think CR gentle with all that devil worship Shit. We used to see her involved in and a lot of that stuff I broke and for New People have not been in the podcast. Awhile when this was going crazy when boarding died and I did a deep dive into us his life. Jesus Christ Christ did we uncovered devil worship. Really Morbid Scary Shit. She's so She since made some camera social media accounts not appear as insane but back then boy she was gone crazy before our eyes. But here's my point. I like to make a lot if she was ever going to hire a Hitman for anybody how about how about you hire someone to take care of the Guy Rachel. You know what I mean. I'll never understand that but you don't really pissed me off Okay you lie about the tax to protect your ass. Whatever line about Donald Berkeley is dumb? Shit easy to figure out same as working for a defied department of Donut Paradise California help at the fires you know you know you see people. People on the left who work in the media were so eager to have a gender fluid fucking hero that nobody cared the checker on her bullshit. Even Ronin Sinatra. who was friends with them? Appearing in pictures with them didn't bother to look into her fucking past Ronin the grade fucking can Pulitzer Prize winning journalist right under his nose biggest stinking liar in the world he knew nothing about it or if he did he did say Shit so you can start. You can start start pulling back from your genuflecting. His journalism. 'cause she'd had passed the smell test should me from the fucking jump and is Ronin getting all wrapped up in it. God got back in the history. Go back and look at the articles. How much he loved these people such? It's fucking bullshit anyhow. Here's a kind of why I really can't stand. Oh okay. The virtual the incident evolves that that that that really gets me the instant around rainbow that gets me involves an instagram message exchange between her and some irate mom of a gender non conforming. Youth is named Sammy though in the messages which are up on our account for a while the parent is spewing transphobic. Hate at rained up and I use is to get accused of this as well when he first at the scene and he used to calm me down in this wonderful manner and the mother accused news her of being a pervert and in infecting their daughter was mental problems in Randolph response by praising the mother for caring about the daughter water and being so involved in life and by the end of the exchange which rain dove shared of course with his combined five hundred thousand instagram and facebook facebook followers. The mother has a change of heart and accepts her child's decision to transition. Isn't that a wonderful happy ending. But now following the now viral encounter with Sammy's mom some news outlets and social media influences applauded. Rain doves patience and compassion out magazine even published a headline rain dove just gave Abram masterclass in responding transphobia and the Daily Mail posted a story titled Gender Fluid Model Rain Dove praised for patient response response to an angry stranger was such that. What a Pussy Society we've become but then after a number of people on Social Media started to question the existence of Sammy's mom who's profile photo by the way was a stock image that could be found when searching quote quote angry old woman on Google. Now we're getting warmer and rain. Dove offered to provide evidence that the parent did in fact exist in in and let me talk to verify news outlets. I'll tell you I can show you but then when NBC News took him up on the offer a he kinda refused multiple requests quite how to change your heart so last November rain claim that He was pepper sprayed by transphobic mom in a women's bathroom. Yeah through Nashville High School in North Carolina. I'm that story very well and the assailant then found rain dove on social media following the incident to say hey she'd do it again and the two proceeded to have a conversation on instagram. That ended with the mother having a change of heart once again. The Great Eight Rain Dove Changes. Someone's hate to understanding and compassion and social media post in which rain shared their exchange went viral and garnered widespread media attention. Everything else he did dropped his pants. fucking ten stories. Appear wraps his tits sub Chinese stories. It was disgusting. I'm the only guy sitting here going. The fuck is wrong is something smells so. NBC News when they sought to report on this incident in two thousand eighteen dove had a recorded conversation with them and he said well. Then it is. Kinda thing happens. A lot and I've been pepper sprayed a few times and as with a couple of times and I've been in public restrooms and they'd been rowdy people because you know I had that in drowsiness appearance and and they asked well how the woman who pepper sprayed you at Asheville high school. How was she able to find out you? Name in order to contact you on social media. Anthony Ansett 'cause the apparent ended up having to file a report of Said you know she followed report for the whole experience and then they followed up. They got my name. Officially I think through that through through that mode through that mode he said the parent informed informed that they checked up on me afterwards to see what the police had done with me. What a crock? cushite and thank God both the Asheville Police Department and the Asheville high school denied ever receiving report about the incident as for the alleged edged attacker. WHO had a change of heart dog provided? NBC News with a name and email address for the lady but the person whom NBC News emailed refused to speak on on the phone and the name rain provided was not the name of the parent at Asheville High School. So will this fucking guy still lying still fact public records show. There's no one by that name. Living in the state of California this mother. Fuck you know. It just goes to show like I said yesterday today on yesterday's Patriots show when the people who were telling you that you need to live your life better and be more like them when they keep pounding and pounding it that you need to know they're full of Shit they're hypocrites and you're doing just fine and they wish they could be as open and honest as we are but they can't and they've you gotta use all these different attachments to their personality to make themselves bigger than who they are and the worst thing that happened to rain. Dove was attention attention equaling fame and when that happens and your followers shoot through the roof you start to believe everything people say Abacha. Gotcha mostly the good stuff. You know when I had a column at the Daily News there was a time where You know they offered. Do you want want your your face on the column. Because Linda Stacy had her face on the column when she was our editor in chief and me and Michael Lewis wrote with her. We had our names naturally but not our faces and didn't call for us. It was Linda's page and we were writing for her. We are profile was huge anyhow but Linda left and the page became mine. There was an instant. There was a day where you're going to want your picture. Let's get a picture I said you know. I don't want a picture because the minute you see your picture in the paper next to your words it changes changes the way you right. I'm sorry I maybe not for people who write condense journalism and cover a team work of beat but when you're a writer that's dealing dealing with celebrity and fame and society. I just feel for me anyhow. Seeing my face every day in the column would be an affirmation of how great and I'd have to believe all my bullshit and I think that's one way that I saved myself by denying me that simple pleasure. Well that simple honor that most gossip columnists let's face it. All have their faces on their page. I was one of the few if maybe the only one who said yeah. I don't want it. They thought I was crazy. I think it made me better what I do. That's the problem with rain and a lot of people like him. They get these doses of fame name and notoriety and imports. And they just take it and the fucking forces out of the barn and they never think what they're doing is wrong and they always think the way they're telling you to live is the secret to life but you and I know whenever someone talks that way they're stepping shit like I say yes that is sitting in this sitting in in a pilot shit and tell them the rest of the world. You're the ones who stink. But we know better than the ones to stick and now rain because of all this drama and all this bullshit. Pardon the bond is you're GONNA die. She going to die over. This is a hitman going to show up at her door and killer. I don't really think thinks so but I'll tell you what I'm convinced that. Osceola agenda all that devil worship in the background and the fact that her father dowry or gentle is one of the most Macabre Tora film directors on record. I think she'll drum up a lot of a lot of scare tactics and rain doves life and she'll never be the same again. I think that'll finally finally make her disappear from view and she'll come back the way she should have a more docile more respectful More more may productive member of society instead of being above the fray and telling US mere mortals. We all need to be like her. I'm AJ bench. That was his show December. Eighteenth Not Nineteen Talk Tomorrow. Thank you for listening famous. A bitch is an AJ J Benza.

Andrew warms the cockles and Karl frightens the parents

"Clapper's thoroughly modern amazing and Marvel as Mrs Mazel we're talking the hunting and unshared to dramas about sixteen texting and all that exciting that goes on. You'll talk about the old. Venerable and penchant scored a mini golf. And we talk about the Kika to keep welcome to the PAP is this. Is Andrew Young this is concrete. How is this something that you're not very good at the many things? Yeah I mean everybody's is like this but it's the type of thing that you feel. You ought to be good at many things and and that you wished that the by so now you would you more adept at this particular activity. I have one and it's a little embarrassing I K. I'm sure you're many any ones that you will choose. One from an tell us about are also little embarrassing but I would have thought by now I would be able to Tyke hike walnut and crack it without sending shots of Hod and shop show in every direction and a hand hand full of powder and some little beatson remnants of Walnut is cracking and Is there a nutcracker involvement in your. Well I started doing doing them in my bare hands thinking that was an efficient way but I started cutting the hands up. And I've got some cuts on my hands now from walnuts even using a nutcracker so are you ready for your whole body into this. I try to do it in a really. I've tried to be. I'm very economical movements in every other aspect of my life so I try to be economical in this fashion and I'm on just terrible at every now and again one will open beautifully. You'll have these two hemispheres of of of beautiful brainy walnut. And you'll got yes now now on this is how it will be but now with just footnoting there. That win walnut is fresh. Yeah it's really really nice. It's a it's so much better than when you get them. Pre shelled and sitting in the on the supermarket shelves is how long they kind of slightly not accurate. Constant is accurate is exactly the word I was. Is it a maniac or no accurate. These ones are okay from the same valley that I get them from in in past years when you can go to the guy the hidden rally. Nah I'm looking to say secret. Valley's a secret valley that everybody knows about these these afresh shirow course and their initials as they should be. But I'm just crap at it and I'm really annoyed because of all the great achievements of my life. Now I would like to be able to least creole nut cracker wall not being a crack walnut cracker. That's what you'd like to be. So I'm I'm not and it's just been on my mind a couple of things in my mind this week. One of them is Alexander Pushkin. The other these nuts man so nice though when you get them really nice pays this ABC's some wine. That's it's just not g like just not not just as well go to tell if you're having trouble with walnuts what's just totally you in a nightmare. So just you hate them you you you either Roy similar you do them in a panel. I remember the first time I've ever encountered them was. When I was living in London it was on the they have little sort of skill set up and they do them? I've seen them. Yeah and it's so neat little pipe back lag and you'd walk eat them. Walking down the street I honestly can't remember whether they were pre shelled or not in that situation. Because what what I right now is that anytime we get them at. My wife and kids are quite funded. They'll chestnuts and in theory. I'm quite fond of them but then in practice is oh you got little shots of shells denials and hits and you can never quite expose the Brian. 'cause there's an outer shell because inner sean almost like broad beans require a lot of finagling begins in the good stuff. What's the thing you're ashamed of that? You wish she could do better well. I've been waiting for an opportunity to share. I know you must account to should be able what do by now. Oh comeback okay. Good we're going to hear about this later on. This is a good reason to stay to the classes we get to hear. What are these the cows should be able to do? He's advanced age very was through the top ten list. It could be a long time the satisfaction girl on the coming up dog. Get to excited fellas. She keeps a close on. I WANNA be big the biggest thing out there. It's up South seas that I enjoyed and I may have spoken can about with you on this podcast. I can't remember if you spoke about it with may or I spoke about it with you but I've seen season one I would have. I would have got on these way before appropriate. There is no way you have introduced me to none whatsoever. It's called Amazing Mrs Mazel. It's not called the amazing Mrs mysolar Go Mason Thoroughly Modern Mrs Mazel Cold. That's not that important. I mean maybe ladies Mrs Maes second season so I haven't caught up in the second season. It's one of those it. It's one of those seasons that builds upon and expands on and could be said to be in many ways better than the first season scandalous of the first things. They already ready to this. This change his development within the cactus within the relationships. I should say people who aren't aware. Mrs Mazel is this fantasy about a New York Jewish housewife who breaks up with the husband and goes on stage and is a great comic Nick and does a lot of humor. Based on her life as a wife and a mother and also on a woman's place in society she somehow becomes friends with Lenny. Bruce who is a marvelous character and he does appear in the second season. Too late for me. Like about third or fourth episodes. Every scene with her lenny. Bruce's just amazing amazing and she struggles with Barry identity as a a a a a quite well to do housewife life and somebody who's interested in occupying the lower echelons of beat society by hanging out in jazz clubs and Doing doing comedy. So the second season is great and funny and it's all the same cast a one of the differences the episodes are now no longer solely centered around around her either her personal personal struggles that he's with with a husband she get back together or not or friendships or trying to earn a living though. It doesn't appear that she needs to earn a living because her she's living with her father and mother and father's a tenured professor. This is no shortage of funds a massive apartments others them. Tony Shalhoub essentially yeah. I should say that Mrs Meisel is played by Rachel Brosnahan. Who I think is fantastic? She's wonderful does she. Keep measuring rankles in. This is awesome. Now that that's an interesting thing. There was a lot of attention to personal grooming in the first season. We don't spend a lot of time in the personal grooming department and she's he's no longer on the makeup counter at our count me of the department store. It doesn't matter. She's now on the phone. He's running running to the sight. Gag I guess you call them. I wish you had the tightness around. Her ankles. Calves thighs hips waist and it was all about her sense of obligation is Jewish housewife housewife. And she was what she needed to keep self looking trip right. YEA interesting that. That's it's true this we there are the episodes. We've seen have often focused on members of the family Or other people within the cast. Not just on her on her needs or on her Ambition and this been other and another another suppose development is she finds itself in an almost like dreamy way like an in she still funded self standing up in environments that she hasn't been booked to play in like at somebody's these wedding or at a a French Drag Club and doing There's one one since pretty good too. She she's in a drag club and the men are in their folks and wigs and dancing and she's just she's just sitting there having a dairy having a Martini and the performance ends may take off the weeks and and she shocked. He's never seen men in dresses with wigs. From the life she gets up and does a whole routine on men and women and like. Isn't it enough. That may have everything already ready now. They they WANNA be women that you know some very interesting An acronym stick ideas and speechifying through comedy that she makes that. It's clearly Louis directed towards society now and people watching now not women in the nineteen fifties getting up on stage telling jokes and talking about feminism and Identity politics. So that's I think it's good it makes makes the show. I suppose in intentionally makes the show more than in just a period pace more than just something that all the beautiful clothes of the fifties and and the the husband wife relationships in in The white people behave at work and at hunt. It's hilarious stool and I think it's better in so many ways. I just wish there was more lenny. Bruce Right is there plenty of suzy. Who Manager? Oh Yeah oh well she she she gets practically a whole episode to a selfish and it's great. It's great for every every one of these axes you. The actress who plays as a mom escapes me. She gets a whole episode and you just wish she could just watch her because she's brilliant and every everyone it's like it's like a band made up of really good decisions decisions and everyone in the band you could just sit there and watch the whole Gig. Watch them play and love and not even notice anybody else's there it's likely with with the cast and and what a great idea to not just have you know eighty percent of each episode Rachel Pros Mahan. Would winning Rachel Brosnahan Being Mazel which is great at but but falling the different pay now. It's really one of things I really liked about. The first season was how she at the beginning. I mean she's a bicycle supporting cutting husband. WHO's a lousy? WHO's a thief safe? He writes sound. He writes mode south jokes and deliver some badly. Sadly doesn't doesn't realize what she's what's amazing about those first couple of episodes isn't is she's she's sitting. Eh might even be on the in the first episode in fact what she's doing this because I think maybe hoods very early on the hit the but she's sitting there taking not right right. She's got a notebook out and she says seriously jotting down when the when the guy landed when didn't land what people responded to what they didn't respond to. And you go. Wow Oh that's so analytical and surely comedies like but I guess at some of these like that is absolutely like that you have to be successful. Stand up so probably quite forensic in understanding undestanding when a gag works. What the timing? Is You know what what's going to resonate with particularly crowd. If it's not working how you adjust on the run so I found on that really fascinating and then you get the idea of so when she gets up on the stage and she's really funny. Yeah is it because of this a night kind of Colty. She's got yes. It's not of that but but visit also because she's done all the hard work as well. I don't think so because if you remember. And I'm not spoiling anything the fact that that I'm Meech Meisel Marjorie Mazel and her husband spit up as either the very end of the first episode. I'm pretty sure it all happens. Everything has been the first couple of episodes. Nothing's nothing's lost all from United knowing that and she tells jokes on stays comic so now nothing's being spoiled she. The first subjugates say is almost an accident. it's an accident and she's gotten on material plans. He's spending clothes she's drunk and she takes off her clothes and gets arrested. which is how she makes? Lenny Bruce and it's Lenny Bruce But it's it's it's if you haven't caught the first season you can still and the second one is is up there to win joy. Well where is it. It's on television. Do this all the time. It's on television on television prime on price to me sir. I'm not taking my hands. I'm opening my hands into my wallet. You're actually a good point. You have have to pay to watch this. You have to pay Amazon prime to the show and I'm not going to tell you that you should pay him some go down to the video shop and and how the videos when they come out that way nine hundred ninety seven yeah on and on in ninety four you can. You can do that but if you don't want to a a for you may have too many subscriptions but It's it's hilarious. It's crept closer great. Close the many any women's clothes I if you have any interest in women's clothes of the nineteen fifties debts enough view is be sitting there open mouthed through the whole show some amazing The May in a pretty much. They're not very stylish man. They just men who work bizarre lean fashion but in women's fashion. So they're not. I mean then badly dressed but nothing to make you excited excited about men's clothes and then run around telling everyone that only men are funny. Comedy is fueled by disappointment comet humiliation now who the hell does that describe more than women back in New York. I'm surprised you haven't liked might fun of my clothes today. I feel jin-de tell you what cal I might have close last time and it was excised from the the podcast. Listener's list is to the podcast just previous to this. Will He. Nothing from me about what cows wearing because somebody decided that it wasn't funny or Jaunty or entertaining and excise it from the podcast while letting a whole lot of other stuff. Go through my during a silent partner Hassan Pot and I decided that me making fun of what you're wearing week after week after week is just boring and he could well have he could. Well have a point. Yeah but I am surprised that you haven't mentioned tonight and see the point in wasting a whole lot of time talking about something that's just going to get caught at any. What for for the visually impaired? I guess the people who are listening. Think I'm wearing a rolex jumper and very records with prices and it's his jumper is tucked into his courts as as wii between the walls and a ninety style diving watch and I saw so very modern quiff and these. Hey Sean I the side. I wasn't going to yea okay and some utility boot for for climbing or kicking and Nineteen Thirties Association football. I'm not sure but evaded hold hold on symbol works very well. SIGWART nicely to a film called the keeper. I didn't did you going somewhere. So why are you dressed. I like the theme so if the Kashmir fogies remade again what will you be wearing a sci fi film. We're talking about next week I'm wearing a spice of the spice on the CAPER is bison story of GEICO Trautmann who says well Wife liked him. She thought he was the CAPA- keep S. I'm not actually giving away anything about the film. True story with the caveat okay but Trautmann cravat with the caveat not a CRAVAT now corvettes zero neck jumping good so German prisoner of war in in the UK After the wall He's in prison. Postal aw and he set in nineteen forty-six he was still in still in jail in prison. I should say in the in the camp and he was spotted playing soccer and A local club manager so him and went actually he's goalkeeper. We've been looking for put him in goal and he was great and then he was eventually Scotto by Manchester City to play in the first division as it was back in those days and Famously he played in an FA Cup final from an city and had his neck broken while diving at the feet of a an an opponent. Knee collided with his head. Snapped broke a couple of vertebrae and He continued to play. He played out the rest of the game. The remaining fifteen or twenty minutes of the guy with a broken neck and when they won spoiler alert. It's not even fifty six. I think when as he was going out to collect the he's mentally Italy he practically collapsed. You know like a jelly amazed by them but It's a remarkable story. What happens then? That's pretty much the end of the film home. What happens doing with these may actually quite the end of the film he He's out of action for probably six months or so. It comes back spinner. Yeah he's broken neck. It's better. That would happen. Yeah all the nerves in the cords were. Kate was just it was it was I don't know the precise details from if I remember correctly. One of the Vertebrae was broken. Maybe two and was there was a sort of like one. was that applies but it was wedged between two others which prevented the spinal column from moving too much and had that not been the case that there was a doctor that would have been a real risk of basically dying. Had he been job game. Oh so very eh kind of tenuous skype really through. This sounds like interesting. Part of the film to me Well it's GONNA spend a lot of time. It's the thing that well. Yeah because there's a lot of you've really created football and this and it's it's beautiful because they're wearing these thick heavy cotton jerseys and they wearing their long shorts and they're wearing these water effectively work boots with spikes on them. You know I pretty much dress like you're describing yourself. And in fact when he's he's wearing a rolex standing around calls the fields of muddy the Bulls of those very very heavy leather balls which is when I first started playing soccer in in the eighteen twenties Round that Brown Brown Brown and when they got wet though practically like like like medicine balls. Yeah so heavy and headed one of those things you all my Cetinje get you know molly concussion. My white a ton so the the sort of detail the recreation of that in the kind of when he starts playing the sort of amateur local league and they're playing in these tiny little pocket of got a little stand and then the kind of like surrounded by Akao. Paddock's it's just beautiful. The sort of the detail of it. I just found it just really really liked the those kind of aspects of CONC- like so much that you view life however this is slightly uncomfortable aspect to it. which is the fact that Bert Trautmann? Who was eventually a adult and esteemed by city fans? Immensity has a strong Jewish supporter-base At first I did not welcome the fact that the club had had hide. Had this This you know German as I called him a former Nazi and the you kind of Iressa with the sense of other. I being unfair in the in the sort of characterization of him as a as a former Nazi and the film kind of leads you to believe that yes they are being unfair. He talks about his war experience. You know he did things. He's not proud off but there was no choice. He was a soldier conscripted. He was following orders. The more design design. And there's a degree to which you go. Well you know how much choices anybody have in those circumstances not a lot. And he's painted in the film as reluctant isn't soldier and one who if he didn't begin with a conscience certainly develops a conscience through through his war experience in reality. The Real Uber Trautmann was a member of the Hitler youth. He he was. He volunteered He won an iron cross. He he did three Three separate tools he was he was very enthusiastic soldier soldier. Yeah and perhaps ask Nazis. Well well I mean things were going. Well this is where it gets really interesting because reading about this so sort of delving into that like he was a member of the Hitler youth from the age of ten whatever in accommodate these numbers now but in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Three before Hitler came to power He'd come to paranoid yes but only three years something like twenty three thousand members of the the Hitler Youth and then subsequent to the you know the national socialist taking power within by the end of the year there were millions so Zyppah is because all these white kids can have access to sporting facilities and all the rest of it was to become I think it was pretty much compulsory for the there was a a female version as well. I can't remember what it was called but it was pretty much compulsory for the the Aryan German children belong to either of those things so being hit lease doesn't necessarily make you an enthusiastic Nazi Haida of volunteering to join the army seventeen and during three tours and winning an iron cross however probably all start paying a slightly warranties it. Does it does picture so. But it's a movie about something and it's got its on gender of redemption and it's directed by German and which may or may not it doesn't necessarily mean it's a whitewash but all of our version It possibly does suggests that there's a there's an empathy for the complexity of that situation. That might not have been directed by CY in English director. So it's an interesting interesting little artifact and cinema. Betty's marriage he it doesn't last now well. It doesn't film. Yeah but in reality. Helen's it last in reality quite a while Colorado is the reason. Why didn't you look that up now? I didn't didn't limits the limits of what one can find out through the University of wikipedia and as Dr Google. I didn't bring up. He's not who I think is probably no longer with children. They've got children Don I Jonathan Isaac procreate. I'm I'm really not going to get in. I hear my my report. I'm going to get a C. minus. Just think that it's such a shame. He started so well will offer many questions but that in the end few ounces. You're very harsh market. duckie on you really are. It's it's it's an interesting film is it's a it's a somewhat unsatisfying. Portrait still really quite caught fascinating fascinating but unsatisfying. Unsatisfying too harsh. I think if you if you just accept the the story as told by the film I really story questions. You don't have an enquiring mind you sit there and you accept what you're given you will enjoy yourself. You will feel like especially soccer if you just have a little bit of a raid about Bert old. Ben had thought men and see what the reality was. You start to see that it was probably a little murkier than the film allows that's the thing with these historical dramas is I once you start to scratch the surface. You realize you know the lesions I've made in order to you know track along with the story all the rest of ought to simply make it terrible in two hours or whatever it might be sometimes significant. Sometimes they're not. Sometimes they're insignificant matters of compression and you commute characters and all that kind of stuff and sometimes they're actually leaving out stuff that's really quite material. This is not about football he's obliterate Nazi. He raised his arm. Like the others shouted. I'll hit look maybe utilized erased yours. Visit Stop the team getting relegated Andrew. Have you come across the hunting on. ESPN I've seen ads for it. So it's four part drama series series. Yep you watched all the pets okay. Considering sending two high schools in Adelaide hatful pardon. I'd like to know from from the end on the and the other way round and they all lived happily ever after. I'm glad about that because I tell you what it didn't look to me like like all we're gonNA leave heavily after from the advertisement. I think it's very pretty. Canine fantasize they all carry some skies is with them ever off all right. So it's it's a drama. Sitting to high schools basically in a nutshell it's about sixteen scandal or is about to sexting scandals that play out parallel and is one kid who is kind of the nexus with these stories intersect and He's a sort of a spoiled rich kid. He's as the the son of Laura there's a lot of sons of QC's Richard Roxburgh plays the father advocate. I advocate applies the mother and It it's it's impart. The parents story how they deal with it because it's a kid's story how they experienced it. It's the ripples in in terms of how it impacts on other friendships and essentially or core of the two girls now they're affected by it. I think it's really really good because it's it doesn't sort of go. Oh kids taking Sophie's what are they thinking. Stop it you know. Don't take new new picks of yourself. That's no wonder you're getting getting an YEP situation doesn't take that kind of moralistic time it's The the filmmakers Sophie Hi to might fifty Tuesday's is The creator of this and And she's got a film. That's a myth called animals which is Just just watch today is also terrific interesting film. mm-hmm exploration of young women and coming into a sort of like are we gonna get online kind of keeping a party animal. Am I going to try and be something else. And the trials don't involved. In whatever choice Mike and she grapples with really interesting stuff and this is a very very interesting thing and a construct. The first REP sites hydrates the final no one. It's really very very open to the idea that kids grow up with technology. Experience the world through technology. Why would they not also explore their sexuality through technology so assuming that's the case they going to do it yeah right and they're gonna find ways of engaging with each other cyber six sixteen yet ever really the key question becomes one of consent and time trust and and the breach their off and I i? I just think it's really really an excellent engagement with the topic. It's pretty I mean you know. Directing cost of young actors is always think tricky but for the most part I think they're really Really terrific detail ups. They did a couple of different cats of of the ADS. They all. Everybody looked great in really well might look like a great program and I wanted to keep it in this tight. Almost play like the confines the two families in order to kind of move out into the school. It's definitely any school into the press in the a little bit in the press mourn orange social media. Yeah chat rooms And and I feel like a pornographic site where I mean the title comes from the idea of these schoolboys who going out there hunting for images of the goals around them. Yeah this on this platform uh some accepted. There's a website it has students on it and the naked. They won't funders waters of girls at eight nine. We put off at school. People want to wear came from me. What did you do you want to do on his mother and I know something's not quite I talk to me? He say anything else on this thing that we need to be worried about all I did was send it to one person. His men just the Florida take it down kind of man. Do you want outside to become the hunting stocks Thursday said the festival guest on ESPN and on demand. The story has a has its genesis in real life us. I'm not entirely sure if it was was the It was Melvin Story. A couple years ago I crowned a By side Private School. I'm not sure if it directly draws from that case ice or if there are others that might have been something like that. I'm not aware of I mean they. That's right it's not. It's not a pretty high profile one but not a unique case but the sending the website website the sharing of the images in that. Why was part of that story? So it's look it's really really rich territory something. I'd like to get my kids to watch. Laud think optically want to watch it with them. Yeah it's it's it definitely looked like one of those worthy dramas. That people would merely be talking about what they should show this in schools. It's it's not something no parent should miss. You know It's that makes it sound like it's not engaging or entertaining and always say not not some fair. Yeah I wasn't. I wasn't suggesting that wasn't engaging tiny am it and but it definitely should it. It doesn't lecture the audience. Perhaps it keeps things in place where this this. There is a possibility for the viewer to find on sympathy from different points of view. Rather than there being this one didactic view that you must. Oh you mustn't do this. I remember reading an article. I don't want to say it was because I could be wrong about the fact that if you WanNa take photographs of yourself naked and you want to share them with with a person that you care about then that shouldn't make you an object of judgment or we're talking about adults of course not talking about show also shouldn't and for a brief period deed made you guilty of disseminating pornography. Yeah Yeah Post Post that the the two then to be. It's a bit like victim blaming to them to be told that well what would you expect. Of course that would show you only asking for trouble. When it's it's a bit like saying hang? Well I I told all these intimate things about my life to the person that I was going out with and then we broke up and then they they blurted out. What would you do when people trust each other's share things with each other and that's a great? That's a great thing The people do and a person shouldn't be blamed for doing that. And so there is a sense of you've you that that all of Yanni brought it on yourself but you'll wearing it if it avoids that then that makes it something. I think it would be void. That would be very valuable thing. People parents and teenagers to see and if the topic is of interest there is his oddly. Perhaps not only maybe this is kind of seeing it probably is. In Fact Designed Gossiping was a film called share which is at all by the time we got got to wear it will be gone. I suspect but it's also on Foxtel so you can see its share share. J. H. I.. E. CanNot C. H.. It is a shame Anyway this this is a kind of a similar similar terrain but very different. The handling of this story about a high school goal American project this one high school go wakes up POPs out. She's passed out and then she wakes up on her front lawn Uh She's been drunk and she doesn't she she's not you know. Not really doesn't have any recollection of the night slowly at emerges. There's this video of uh so be compromising and And she tries to get to the bottom of what happened and who was responsible. Who who basically we started sharing this this video why took it And it's it goes gust of some very interesting places I've gotta say In and it's really about the focus is more on the cost of Of pursuing some kind of justice yes in that scenario and it's a very complex topic No easy answers is anyway. thematically linked things that you can you can catch on your various platforms. UPS will with. I wonder what you think is the best value cow being outside not a beautiful sunny day cold wintery outside on the list to adding two rounds. I didn't holes each mini golf to adults one child. Aw Aw being inside all day at the Bowling Alley. Two Games shoes included two adults one child which would be the bit value. Do you think you presume to be the best value. When you say the bed value is saying we still I think would be more expensive? Not not necessarily because the values yeah surely relevant to the amount of pleasure you get from exactly. Yeah exactly so. I like both of those activities I I would do. Is I probably go for the bowling than the feeling spry gold the collar striking and athletic pose as you. Listen so yes. The cost the cost between activities Quite different and when presented with choice the smallest member of my household the youngest member. My Hassle didn't choose the most expensive one is a harbinger for the rest of my life. Life played that daughter so mini golf at Fairfield which is not as far away as Boeing in Greensboro right. So there's a there's a bonus so all right you go to factoring. The savings promised transport costs seventy bucks. Sri Sri Seventy Bucks is for me not an easy out of money to part with for a fleeting pleasure but it actually was great. And we're still talking about something else. Now Okay mini golf very funny very funny. The only thing you have to be concerned about. And if I mean if you're like me you see that mini golf golf but many Goff. Also there are rules and they're very important rules that need to be observed right now. I used to tell me that doted transcripts than being no not no our party followed some of the basic rules of and some of them especially she. Yeah about the rules of golfers practice. There's certain rules of etiquette. So if there's somebody ahead of you at the next hall you wait till they finish. You Ain't got stand the next to them really close and peer them united. Stop playing your ball on tall. You wait till everybody has lift our K.. That's just good matters all right Another rule is you. Don't turn up with three or four of your Matching tracksuit wearing nights really drunk and and start swearing and screaming and threatening each other. That's that's another thing that I think is is in terms of good man is but also rules. I don't think that you are on the Royal Melbourne Mini Golf Course. Where you're like? I say this one was in Fairfield so so I think I think it is important and another thing. That's really really important. And I think you can teach your children The right kind of values in doing this. Okay united spot them you give them a handicap you you make them hit the ball from the same place everyone else hits the ball and you count this strikes just like you can't everybody else's strokes K that gives them something to strive an iphone. It gives them a chance to see how the game is played. You like. Give them three Queens when when they learning chess right they have the same queen. You have right the the party behind me. Cruel to be kind had had to adults and three children and they would nipping it out heels because they're allowing during the children to put their ball one clubs length away from h hall right so all the different interesting in various obstacles diverse arrangements of rocks in the things that make mini golf the exciting sport that it is. They're avoiding all the chicanes tunnels traps that just taking the bull run up to the hall separated by well. They clubs the smallest. So it'd be about a meter away and knocking Indian kids going well. That wasn't seventy bucks with the kids will morph because three kids to adults. Okay so listen. Do the math so I found that I found that very annoying very annoying and I have to sign this. Might honestly this might make me sound a little bit. Lack of imagine had a little thank you but I don't want somebody breathing down my neck. Even though he's nine years old so physically a concert on all fours as he was breathing. Down loading up my shot and these these keyed. He's practically standing on my feet staring at me. Ah Man back to your whole these. This my whole this whole three my whole until these bulls are you just stay there and I just thought well you're right. These kids aren't being brought up. Probably at all. Frankly and you know and and it you can't bring up other people's children for them you really you know that I will say a thing or two where necessary but I just didn't. I didn't want to hurt his feelings. That you want to the main to him or anything but man just back off we give me some spice father. Yeah I generally generally when I have words with another man in Z.. It's it's in an area where nine children all because of the potential bloodshed. Potentially yes for that man just to be prone on the ground with his hands around. These knows this. I have to say to this. I'm not a violent violent man. They started getting into fights. This never happens. Not For thirty. Forty years never happens anyway. I can make main. This is an activity especially when you add. Add up your scores. The correct schools schools the other family the right schools and you find that thrice you have the day's lucky number chapa chops chops US championships. Yeah it kind of makes it. Mike said look a little makes the beat appeal. People observing the correct rules and etiquette a little easier to swelled up costs these days.
