'American Injustice' Author J.P. Mac Isaac Is Getting the Truth Out

"Think people are going to learn in this book when they get it? And the book, by the way, is American injustice, my battle to expose the truth. Well, I think it should be a cautionary tale. There's two stories that I think the more important story is not revolving around a guy with a drug problem and a sex addiction that left three laptops at my shop are one laptop in my shop. I think the story is more of this is what happens when our mainstream and social media collude with our federal agencies that have been weaponized politically. And this is the outcome. And they decided to block my story, replace the narrative with this Russian collusion. And push that on to the American people. And they took away my opportunity to tell my story. So this book allows me to tell the story. They can't shadow ban this book. They can't block it on YouTube. So this is my story and my effort to get the truth out.

What's Next for the Ukrainians?

"Let's get right to the essential thing, which is the Ukrainian winter offensive. Two stories about this in The New York Times that Ukraine expects to go over to the offensive. Now, I don't, I'm not a military experience. I just read the books about the winter war in Finland. And the Russians, you know, what do you think are the odds that any significant change in the battlefield will occur now that winter is descending upon Russia and its neighbor Ukraine? I think the odds of a significant shift are low, but not impossible because of the ongoing collapse of Russian brow. Having said that, you are sufficiently tuned in to military tactics to know that offense is. One is to three meetings. You got to have three times as many troops on offensive overcome a dug in component and that's why the Russians had a lot of trouble at the front end of the Ukrainian defense, Russia didn't have that three to one ratio overwhelmed them. Now, down south, the Ukrainians who have to come up with the three to one. But here's how they're compensated. They're using special force brilliantly. They are used in the advanced Thrones. They are maneuvering around and cutting out supply lines. So there's a balance there. What I'm watching also suited to kind of conclude an overview is the electric grid on the Ukrainian side. You know, in a sense, we're in a tale of two wars here. One is the groundwork to the south. Ukrainian winning. But in the air war over you in the strike against the electric grid going into the winter very significant. That's the other war we ought to be focused on.

"Here with me giving me a chance to teach some of the things that I find to be really important to break into product and also to feel your product growth. I love doing that. I love coaching and mentoring. So thank you for being here and giving me the chance to do that. So let's kick right into it. All right. So good PMs are good diplomats. Let's open up with the question. What do the CEOs of Google and Microsoft have in common? Giving you all a moment to think. Satya Nadella and Sundar Pichai were both product managers. Turn product leaders and rose to the top to become CEOs at some of the biggest and most fantastic tech companies in the world. They also happen to have a reputation of being good diplomats. So what does that mean? What is a diplomat? Consulting Google, I was able to modify it just a bit to my liking, but I think this capture captures it well. A diplomat is a person who can deal with people and then empathetic and effective way. So dealing with people in the sense of dealing with your customers, dealing with your teammates, understanding them, empathetic and the sense of listening really, really well, understanding multiple perspectives. So you can synthesize them, make decisions, and bring people together to move towards a common vision, common goal and solve a problem. In a very effective manner. Ultimately, product managers, product leaders, or driving outcome, were traveling results. So this is a way to go about it with good diplomacy. And I looked to those two stories highly recommend if you haven't seen some of the coverage on their career and how they rose into becoming a CEO of some of the most amazing companies out there. You'll see the story of diplomacy within their backgrounds. All right. So what are some of the ways that you could apply good diplomacy? I like to start off with asking for help. I think that this is underutilized under leveraged. I can't overemphasize this. This helped me break into product management and I feel for many of you. That's what you're looking to do in this audience of product school webinar folks. I'm happy and delighted to help out and also share a story on how that was effective for me. So reading out the Steve Jobs quote, I've never found anybody that didn't want to help me if I asked them for help. Now I didn't have exactly the same track record. However, I do find this to be generally true. It does matter. And how you ask for help. Why you asked for help in letting the other person understand it? Well, and when you ask for help. So thinking about the ways that you can approach somebody to reach out, even called emails, LinkedIn messages, whatever it might be. Think about your approach, how you go about it, and when you go about it, and giving people

"Second story I need you to comment on, please. Let's start with you, Victoria. Again, Wall Street Journal prosecutors hold off final Hunter Biden case decision amid talks with defense lawyers. He could tetra away in the background and he will. There are daylight in a dollar short. There are daylight because this has been investigated for what, four years. Almost four years. Four years. And 2018. And this is the low hanging fruit, a first year prosecutor could have brought a false statement. And he'd lie on the ATF gone purchase form about being a prior drug user. Yes, that didn't take me four years. Should I be working for the DoJ? Jackson's even talking. That's a tax case is a no brainer. That's a one year case tops.

Ed Ryan: Why Some People Did Not Evacuate for Hurricane Ian

"Of the reasons for that was back when Irma hit everybody in the barrier islands Fort Myers beach sanibel pine island, and they were all told that the storm surge was going to be so bad that it was going to have the potential to destroy buildings. And what happened was there was no storm surge. So I think there was a false sense of security this time around where they said, watch out, watch out for the storm surge, and people decided if they had a two story building, they were just going to move up or if they had an addict, they were just going to move up. And what happened was it was so high. Mike, when I tell you that, we looked at some of the buildings during the storm where there were cameras set up on high rises. The buildings were underwater. I mean, some of the houses on fort Mars beach are so old, the cottages. They were just, they were just broken into tiny little pieces. There was no chance for people to survive if there were something like that. Mobile home parks, same thing. They're at least two or three on four Mars beach. They just totally destroyed all of those, all those facilities. So, you know, there was a mandatory evacuation. I think governor desantis did a great job. I think the county leaders and Lee county did a great job giving people enough time to get out. I mean, how much time and how many times do you need to be told to get out before you, you know, in your mind you're thinking, I'm staying. I mean, the traffic wasn't bad enough during the initial evacuation where they had to open the shoulder of I 75 or any of the busy roads. They were ready to do that. And so, you know, the people on those islands that decided to stay, they were going to stay. It wasn't like it was the last minute, 15 minutes you have to get out. They knew they were going to try and stay with their with their property. And it looks like you shot pictures now. I believe that's the four Mars beach beer. It was.

Francis Foster: A Letter to My Newborn Son

"My favorite British podcast. You've got to listen to it, trigonometry, especially the raw versions that you will find out what that means when you subscribe. It's constantin kissing. It's Francis foster. He has a new book. It's called an immigrant's love letter to the west izuku. It's just made a Sunday times best bestseller list. But there's something much more important that he did prior to the book. And it's called a letter to my newborn son, we do not kneel. And I've picked the best parts of it. I read it all on air a while back, but I'm going to ask the man who wrote it to do a reprise because it is worth your time constant. And when you do the honors? I will do, although I did say to you when you read it live out on that that you did a much better job of reading than I ever could. So this is going to be a second story is yours. Son, I wrote this letter during your first few days in this world. Your mother and I are so happy that you're here. Your grandparents, great grandparents, aunties, and other relatives are excited to get to know you. Even strangers who will never meet you send their congratulations. And it is one of their messages that I want to talk to you about. Most people me included have been trying to fit in. The very genes we carry have shaped us to fear stepping outside the group as your grandmother used to say to me when I was a little boy. If you spit society in the face, society will wipe it off and carry on. If society spits you in the face, you'll drown. It's a good Russian saying that one. And your grandmother was right. If you want to live a comfortable life, this is good advice. Fits in, don't ask too many questions and keep your head down. But son, if there's one thing I've learned, it's that comfort is overrated. You've only been here a couple of weeks, so I do not yet know who your heroes will be. But when you choose them, you will notice that they're all extraordinary. They did something different, created something new, achieved something impossible. Keep working until you're one of them. Many years before you were born, I knew that you were on your way, and I refused to accept a little boys and girls like you should be taught that their skin color, sex and sexuality makes some of them better than others. I rejected this new cult and I made it my business to oppose it. I will never accept, and I will never keep quiet about the awful idea that you're better or worse than others because you're a boy or because you carry our genes or because of the person you marry.

Indiana Man Runs Into Burning Home to Save 5 Children Trapped Inside

"Another story before I go further into how the media has covered what happened in Indiana, which is despicable. Indiana man hailed as hero after saving 5 people, including children from house fire. This is just a couple days ago. Isn't it amazing on the media doesn't cover this? The national media, they're too busy worrying about Ukraine or worrying about gun control or this other story we're going to hit. How biological male Thomas nominated for woman of the year? That's the NCAA. But this Indiana man, this is an amazing story. And this is what America is really made of, not those Yuval day cowards. Nick bostick of Lafayette was driving by on his way home when he saw flames coming out of a home around 1230 in the morning. I saw the fire on the balcony so I slammed on the brakes, pulled in the driveway, ran into the house from the back and I was hollering, quote, is anybody there. This random person bostick rushed into the burning home and saw four people. He helped them get to safety right away, but was then told one of the children was still missing. This random good Samaritan then rushes back into the a home only to be confronted with growing flames and thick black smoke. The smoke came out of nowhere. It was pitch black. The heat was excruciating. Bostic was able to locate the child after he heard faint crying. He grabbed the child and jumped out of the second story window to avoid the flames. I grabbed her and held her snug and ran up those stairs like a running back for the colts. I jumped out of the window, said boss stick. There's just a random guy. Dramatic body camera footage from a police officer shows the moment bostick emerged from the home with a 6 year old child. Bostick severed cuts burns and blisters on legs in his arm, he shared at a hospital after several days. He was treated a hospital Wednesday after several days of treatment, waking up every morning, I have something to remind me of why I'm here still alive. Why God keeps me here.

Hunter Biden Reportedly Earned $11M From Foreign Business Deals

"NBC. Analysis of Hunter Biden's hard drive proves $11 million in payments from China. And what are those two stories have to do with one another? You're trying to tell me that NBC would send a bunch of reporters to look through Hunter Biden's laptop to create a negative headline. If Democrats were doing super well right now, remember the entire probe criminally into Hunter Biden is nakedly political for the sole and intended purpose and fact to try to make Joe Biden removable. Now Joe Biden does have an insurance policy. Joe Biden's handlers were very smart in one way. You might say Charlie, what is that insurance policy? The insurance policy is not like the Peter struck stroke smirk or the Lisa page lover from the FBI. None of the insurance policy is that they decided to pick an even more unpopular person to become vice president. Which is if the regime wants to remove Joe Biden assail boy, we got to deal with the that's not good. The Biden team realized that the only thing less popular than Joe Biden. So they got a decision to make, they say, well, at least we can control Biden because hunter did crimes all across the world. NBC News, Hunter Biden's hard drive shows he his firm earned $11 million from 2013 to 2018. This is a common technique that is executed by deep state Democrats against politicians they don't like. Andrew Cuomo fell victim to this, Jesse Jackson junior fell coma to this. Fell victim to this. Rod Blagojevich fell victim to this. It is a common technique, which is to use all of the previously rumored criminal activity of a Democrat, bring it to the surface to try to get that Democrat to heal or to foose. Dog term I used yesterday to obey, and if they become politically un useful, which we just are showing their Joe Biden is so unpopular, you have a means of removing him or a means of making sure that he does not run for office.

Conflicting Reports About COVID Deaths in Hong Kong & China

"Is Hong Kong part of China? Is Hong Kong in China? I'm so baffled by two stories. I've got two stories in front of me. One story says, well, China has experienced the first two COVID deaths in a year. Another story says the morgues in Hong Kong are overflowing and they're got people out in the streets again in refrigerated trucks. Because so many people are dying in Hong Kong. I just asked my team, Yuri, who's great on foreign affairs, and he said, well, it's a matter of perspective. The media tends to include Hong Kong in China, but they're sort of two different entities. That's the answer. Are people dying in China of COVID or not?

The trouble is that at night, we still about 60 people who are living on the boardwalk and the beach and despite these high temperatures that we've been having at night it can get down below 50. And we had a string of fires being set along the boardwalk, maybe just for people to get warm, but this is the anniversary one year ago where a tent went up in flames. It was tied up to an old two story building, and that went up, and there was nobody around to call it in. So we ended up having to have a 116 firefighters out there to put that fire out and the building was destroyed and they were barely able to save the apartment building next to

"So James, I want to ask you about the story that broke yesterday. You guys have a tendency to break news very late in the evening. I'm sure there is a science to it or there's a reason to it. And it says DoJ documents obtained by judicial watch, Tom fitton, great guy, confirms existence of communications between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Pfizer about your organization project veritas tell us about this James. That's right. Tom fitton that judicial watch, who's a friend of mine, he issued a foia request into the Department of Justice for all communications between The New York Times and the DoJ and Pfizer pharmaceutical and DoJ. And shockingly, a document which was came back from the Department of Justice FBI indicating they do indeed have communications between the FBI and Pfizer regarding communications regarding project veritas and myself. So we released these documents last night. I made a video about it. And the question is, why on earth is Pfizer pharmaceutical talking to the FBI about journalists or journalism, Charlie? And further, you know, the CEO of Pfizer had made a statement back in November. I think it was November 9th, where he said that he has been talking to the FBI about disinformation and dark, dark groups. He's clearly referring to groups like project veritas, even though we're not dark, where the opposite of dark. And also we to Charlie remember, we did two stories about Pfizer, one whistleblower within Pfizer Melissa mcatee and emails showing that they were hiding information. Those were the vice president of Pfizer's words, not mine, and also a scientist within Pfizer saying antibodies are stronger than their own vaccine. So I reported on this as journalists do or are supposed to do. And now we come to find out that the FBI is talking to Pfizer about

'Capote's Women' Author Laurence Leamer Writes About People Who 'Live on the Edge'

"I just discovered that there's a new book out called capote's women, it is by Lawrence lemur, the subtitle is a two story of love betrayal and a swan song for an era. It's a beautiful book, and I'm looking forward to talking about it with its author. Lawrence leamer, welcome to the program. Eric, thanks so much for having me. While it's a joy, I have written three pretty long biographies myself and I appreciate the genre. And I think that there's something you can do in a biography that you can't do in any other book. You can bring a period of time alive. It's an extraordinary thing. The time in which Truman Capote lived the 60s in New York, we can't even begin to really imagine what world he lived in. But I actually, you've begun and you've put it in a book. You've written many books on many other fabulous people, most of them taller than Truman Capote, which is saying nothing. You've written about the kennedys. You've written about Johnny Carson. What led you? I know you were a journalist. What led you before we get into this specific book into writing these kinds of books about these celebrated figures? Look, alas, I only have one life to lead. In writing these books, I enter other people's lives. But they've got to be somebody fascinating. They've got to be people who live at the edge. You take chances. That's what I want. With a China car or whether it's the kennedys or JFK or that generation or whoever or Donald Trump for that matter, people live at the edge.

"We're going to hear about two stories of really extraordinary men. Um and and maybe their theme here is about rescues. We're going to hear about Um, the work that earned Lieutenant Colonel Charles Kettles, the Medal of Honor, and we're going to hear it from the point of view of how that happened. How the Medal of honor came about. From William or build Valvano. Bill was what I refer to as the Medal of Honor, Sherpa for kettles. He heard the story and helped advance it to get an upgrade of the metal. Um To the Medal of Honor and of an interesting little bit US history. And then we're going to talk to, uh, an army ranger Tony Brooks, Who's going to tell the story about the search for Marcus Luttrell? Who you may know, is the lone survivor out of Afghanistan, and Tony tells a very interesting and candid approach about trying to rescue somebody in Afghanistan. So great stories back and listen in. We want to welcome to veterans Radio today. William Villa. No bill served in the U. S Army and the medical service corps in 1955 to 1957. But we have them on to talk about his involvement in shepherding forward a Upgrade package for Lieutenant Colonel Charles Kettles, whose distinguished service Cross was ultimately upgraded to the Medal of Honor, and that Medal of honor was awarded to him by President Barack Obama. In, uh, 19. Oh, I lost the date already. Uh, yeah. Okay. 1916. I'm sorry 2016 so that that Medal of Honor upgrade ceremony was in July of 2016. Um and, uh, we're gonna let me let me just set this up a little bit that Lieutenant Colonel Charles Kettle, who's now deceased and who received the Medal of Honor from President Barack Obama in July of 2016. It was for his Saving, uh 40 soldiers and four crew members on a damage you H one d helicopter while under fire in Vietnam in 1967. Really just months into his first deployment in Vietnam and Charles Kettles sort of was Really a born in his blood was aviation. His father was a World war one Royal Air Force Canadian and World War. Two US Army, Eric or pilot. So Charles came by to aviation, you know, from his genetics, Um, and he was a graduate of the Edison Institute High School and Dearborn, Michigan. He, um, flew for Ford Motor Company. He ultimately, uh, got an engineering degree from what was then Michigan State Normal college but now is eastern Michigan University. He served, um in the fifties 19 fifties, uh, as a pilot, with service in Korea, Japan and Thailand. He got out. This is part of the amazing part of the story As you get out, returned and started a Ford dealership with his brother but re enlisted in 1963. When the United States needed pilots for the Vietnam War, and Charles Kettles would have been about a 33 year old at the time. Uh, yeah, ultimately qualified for helicopter. Um, flight and was sent off to Vietnam to join a new helicopter unit, the 1 76 assault helicopter company, and it's in that role that he served as a flight commander. And I was faced with a Or horrific situation when a battalion sized enemy forced ambushed and outnumbered elements of the first regrade 101st Airborne Division, Your Duke four. Um, he left, uh, platoon of these. Uhh. Huey's helicopters are getting get into intensifier to help rescue these men, which he did. And as he said he kept these 44 men off the Vietnam Memorial. So Um, The story of Charles Cattle, which we have told, and veterans radio before is quite incredible and his worth reading or listening to in its entirety, But we have Bill Viola no to talk about kind of a How do you get there? How do you go from receiving the Distinguished Service Cross and 50 years later getting your metal upgraded to the middle of honor and in our experience. These men never asked for this. It's somebody comes along and says, Oh, my goodness. You know, there should be more and that brings us to you, Bill. Um, After your service, you came back to the Arbor, Michigan area. You were president and CEO of a large nonprofit in southeast Michigan. And you got involved in the veterans history Project. Tell us Tell us about that project. Well, first of all, I I've first met Charlie when I interviewed him for the Better insisting project. And the Veterans issue project was established by Congress. I think in the year 2000 And it was to collect them preserve and make accessible. The personal accounts of American wartime veterans. So that future generations who would hear directly From the Veteran about their experiences in Normal realities of war. Um If if I make talk about what we did locally locally, the excellent Rotary Club. Picked up the ball about setting up local veterans history Project. And we were first made aware of this by Professor history professor at Eastern Michigan University. After I wrote several grands requesting funds. Since Congress did not provide real assistance, except for brochures and things of that site. We'll ask you receiving the grands. We purchased cameras and tapes and other equipment used. Converting these tapes to DVDs, which we eventually sent in the library of Congress. We also as and one thing that I'm Proud of Um not that I had anything to do with it. But we also set up a local website for veterans and their families to access. Um, through the Fictional and historical society museum. But, you know, back in my interview with Charlie, I was nearly finished. When his wife came down the stairs and said, Uh, did you tell him about making 15 And finally, well, yeah, you know. Oh, he started to describe the incident. Hey, he, she said he made several trips to the war zone to deliver and pick up troops and delivers the flies and so on. And then the process. Uh, enemy fire made Mystery helicopters. He was flying, um, you know, operable unusable after he returned to the, uh, rounding son on his fourth trip he had to borrow Um On copter from another unit, his his CEO. Uh, very strongly advised him not to go, but Charlie went anyhow and he knew that there were more stranded soldiers there. When you returned to the to the to the pickup zone. Uh, the soldiers would have certainly been captured or killed or whatever..

"two stories" Discussed on Around the World in 80s Movies

"Did get superseded by steve minors next film the following year. Soul man it did robust business not just in the united states and actually did quite well in great britain and west germany and france and what was surprising about that was that these are places typically where the horror films least of those times were not really performing as well as they were in the united states so it was obviously helped by a very light and funny tone at translated well into other countries now the producer for the house series sean cunningham. He ran the sequel idea by new world. Pictures president bob. Ramey who consented to the sequel if they could get the foreign distributors to guarantee advances like they did with the first film so to get distributor interest cunningham needed a script so he asked house screenwriter even wiley if he could write another screenplay for him but he had to get it done in about two weeks widely agreed to doing this but he said only on condition that he directed steve miner. The original house director. As i mentioned he was busy doing man for new world. He was unavailable so widely mentioned to cunningham that he had collaborated very closely with minor during houses production. He was rewriting scenes. He made a lot of comedic suggestions. He also observed how minor was operating behind the camera. Cunningham agreed in addition to those reasons. Why seemed seem to have a vivid imagination. He had a very unique sense of humor. That would lend well to the follow up. And his effects background probably would result in a great looking movie at a low cost if nothing else cunningham informed wiley that the three million dollar budget though was not going to cover most of the original cast returning because whenever a cast member returns for a sequel usually expect more money. But you know maybe they could afford. George went to star. George went seemed agreeable at the time so widely built a story around. George wins character of herald the nosy but very likable neighbor. In house. he was also had an idea to bring back big ban as the heavy after the house was destroyed by fire. At the end of the first film it gets rebuilt in. He would be back. And with this script in hand cunningham secured a twenty five million dollar five picture deal dubbed the cunningham collection after. He received four point five million dollars pledged by four overseas territory. Distributors walter manly of manley productions announced this deal at the american film market in nineteen six and the first release of the cunningham collection would be house to the unexpected as it was called at the time. The other films in the works were to be another ethan wiley film. It was going to be a new york city. Based rock and roll mystery thriller called hot. There was also a film called. The brawlers an edgy comedy adventure written by either dan vining or dean reisner. Depending on which source you believe it features american sailors on leave and bangkok. There would be a screwball. Romantic comedy called dating delilah. A film called angela. From deirdre higgins higgins would go onto correct house four coincidentally and there was also this love story that cunningham. It's been two years working on as a project for himself to direct called the vision. Unfortunately if you know your movie history. None of these other films other than house to came to pass now. The more widely contemplated his story idea featuring herald and big bend. Coming back the lemur. It seemed to me little sense that harold would be haunted by big ben. Big ben was generated from roger cobb spheres as chronicled in house. It didn't make sense that he would carry over somehow into harald's own fears plus. He thought it would be boring to use the same house. Same props same rooms. The same premise. And so he thought about it. Some more and given that george went wasn't that keen on returning. he decided you know maybe. He's a key in on the tidal house. And this gave him a new idea. He repainted to cunningham. He said that the house series instead of following the story from the first film it should instead be kind of like an anthology series like a twilight zone esque or ec comics series. That was its inspiration. Anyway each entry would be a separate film from the last but it would carry over two key. Things one is that it would be set in a house where pretty much anything can happen within its walls and also it would carry over this offbeat mix of horror and comedy. He said about coming up with a new script idea and he would re title it to a more clever one called house to the second story. Now this change in direction actually suited cunningham just fine cunningham had a difficult time shaking the friday the thirteenth series as the only one that was important in his resume he continued journey out what he felt. Were joyless formula sequels seen by many in the industry as the epitome of everything wrong with the horror genre at the time. This house series would be the antidote that he had been looking for all along bringing fantasy and fairytales into the mix cunningham love the fantasy genre. He had once tried to make a hansel and gretel movie with west craven back in the nineteen seventies a successful and very classy mainstream fantasy and policies could catapult cunningham into the forefront of hollywood producers as he'd been trying to do so lot so for the sequel it was decided to concentrate a little bit more here on comedy than gore. They were going to broaden the appeal of the film by securing. Pg thirteen rating. They would also work with marvel comics on doing it adaptation that would appeal to teenagers audiences at that time cunningham fell were growing very inured to the shock skiers that he had been drumming up in friday the thirteenth. He thought that he should entertain these audiences instead with a fantastical story and characters that they should come to like and care about and with this formula could rejuvenate one of the oldest premises in the harsh ra the haunted house film and deliver innovative stories. That crack smart and funny enough for today's audiences who want to experience horror in a way that not been experiencing at least for some time so for the new story ethan. Wiley was inspired by the genre films that he watched with his parents when he was growing up. He had a lifelong love of westerns. He had watched him incessantly with his father. His father was such a fan of the genre of western. Said he actually named ethan wiley after john. Wayne's character ethan. In john ford's the searchers now for the horror side widely remembered a lot of classic horror flakes that he would watch his mother's sometimes on the television. Those horror movies were now considered very family friendly and widely observed that there was a kind of a dormant market here for horror. Movies made today that could entertain entire families with elements of romance an adventure and comedy and creatures that were both adorable and terrifying just like they were back in the nineteen fifties. Speaking of nineteen fifties film actually opens. In that era. We find charles and judith mclaughlin. They hand away their baby jesse to adoption. And that is to protect jesse from retribution. By this powerful ghost that is to haunt him name. Slim razor slim has appeared in the couple's mansion demanding that the handover a crystal skull couple confronts limb to reveal that they don't have it or really know where the skull is slim ends up killing them flash for twenty five years aspiring artists. Now jesse the son. He's all grown. He moves into his inherited but long dorm at home with his girlfriend. Kate odd artifacts abound including one. That is obviously missing from a mantelpiece jesse. Kate are soon visited by. Jesse's rambunctious french harley and charlie's pop singer girlfriend lana also known as pews glitz as her stage name. Now while they're looking through the family photos albums in the home jesse spice. Pictures of his namesake. His great great grandfather also named jesse. Who is an outlaw. From the old west earn his keep finding lost treasure including the crystal skull with giant jewels. In its izhak. It's slim razor also factors into those old pictures. He happens to be elder. Jesse's partner in treasure hunting and the album goes on to detail the falling out between slim and jesse over the skull an old book on mexican legends that younger jesse fines in the home tells more stories about this crystal skull. The skull can lock mysteries of the universe and it can also grant everlasting life to anybody who possesses it and the book also relates the ancient aztec practice of burial with jewels. So jesse and charlie determined that the skull must be buried with the great great grandfather and dig up his grave nearby and find the skull unearthed though they also find the elder jesse is reanimated to life preserved skulls magical powers that happened to be apparently true although he is looking quite old one hundred seventy plus years old however it also returns the spirits of others who've been looking for the skull from various times and dimensions including of course slim razor who is out to claim with jesse stole from him prior to abandoning him in the mojave desert to die over a century before. Now's director steve miner. Although he moved onto soul man he had recommended one of the co stars of man airy gross to star in house to minor thought. That gross was a perfect choice to lead a movie and this would be a big break for him although gross when he read the script he really couldn't make heads or tails of the concept. He did blow everybody away with his initial read and his audition so he was signed immediately now for the supporting roles. They look to primarily populated with comedians and comedic actors comedians. Jonathan stark and. bill. Maher the auditioned for both the best friend role as well as the record producer. That would come into play later in the story now. Jonathan stark he came from the world of improvisational. Comedy had a better understanding of the absurd tone of house to and he also shared the most chemistry with gross bill. Maher he seemed to have a little bit more of a darker edge. He would be better as the smarmy record producer character so he got the latter. Many of the actors hung out together frequently when they were not filming they also claimed that helped their interactions in front of the camera. Start credits house to with having a great cast that generated lasts both on and off the set together and he claims that this was the most fun he's ever had in making a movie lar park lincoln. She was also chosen for her chemistry with every gross in her auditions. She credits house to. You is the first step towards securing. Found fatale roles that she would be known for afterward. She also enjoyed working on the film she's disappointed. That were jumbled out of context in the editing phase of the film and a lot of her best scenes. she feels ended up on the cutting room floor. The film also marks the cinematic debut of comedic actress. Amy as bec- yazbek at the time was hungry to get her first big break. She lied to the producers about her experience and talent to try to land the role piece glitz her age named persona in the film. She was supposed to be a punk rock singer in the script but the final product ends up making. You're more like a pop. Star like cindy lauper madonna for scene where she has to dance around in her panties lips thinking to her trademark song. Yazbek put on an extra pair of underwear just in case something embarrassing to happen to the first. Yes but did become very good friends with jonathan stark in particular on the film's star claims. He had an immense crush on her during the shoot and they both still remain very good friends to this day devon damascus. She also appears in this film playing the virgin the ashtec virgin kind of ironic twist. She was a former playboy centerfold during this period although the producers actually didn't know that when the cast her she also happened to win the spokes model category on. Tv's star search in one thousand nine hundred six as well. Now many actors from classic. Hollywood audition for the elder jesse known as gramps in the film but while he decided he wanted to cast royal daino because dino had a very distinctive voice it exuded lots of personality despite having to wear a lot of makeup and prosthetics to make him look one hundred seventy years old his voice. His personality would come through despite the makeup. Dino did feel mildly insulted when he was informed. Well they weren't really gonna need a lot of makeup to make them look one hundred seventy years old. The biggest hurdle for dino was that he'd recently had quadruple bypass heart surgery then that required cunningham to pull some strings at the last minute to try to get him in jordan on board now widely in working with dino. He regarded him as a national treasure. He was a consummate professional on. Enough said a gifted comedic actor in front of the camera and an all around great guy who guild everybody on the set with anecdotes of working with some of the greatest filmmakers in hollywood history he worked with alfred hitchcock and the trouble with harry as well as several episodes of alfred hitchcock presents television show he also worked with john huston for a couple of films like moby dick and the red badge of courage. He was very popular on the set for a taste of old. Hollywood the also secured. George wentz colleague from the tv. Show cheers john ratzenberger to appear as an adventurous electrician named bill towner. That was purely coincidence. They weren't necessarily trying to strike a cheers motif in their films. But ratzenberger just happened to audition the best of the people that they were looking at ratzenberger quipped that he was being typecast here into a dorking uniform roles at least in this period of his career now he's secured the role not only because of his comedic skills but he had surprising physical fitness and talent for somebody who looked kind of pudgy and middle aged at the time but that came from years of martial arts training. He also learned how to sort fight and tumble. He was a stage actor for quite a while in london which is where he learned a lot of his acting skills. Ratzenberger who is also a gifted improvisational. Comedian he changed his dialogue in his actions. Seemingly with every take which made the production crew in the editing team complained to widely incessantly but widely waved off all of their criticism because ratzenberger was bringing such great personality to the role. He felt that it was going to be worth the headaches. Try to piece together later. And that kind of embodies wylie's approach to his first time as a director. Although it is his first oriel feature effort actually did go very smoothly for wiley who due to his prior experience. On the technical side of things he was able to address a lot of the mechanical problems that typically plague the technical crew the creatures in the puppets all of this things. He managed to make sure that they were dealt with before they caused problems. During the shoot he also understood went to swap out different puppets for different shots as well as went to leave something just to a match. And he also knew the jargon of technical crew which kept things humming along and because he was also in charge of the script he knew what was physically and technically possible before he would put it into the story and that made him a better screenwriter. Knowing what would be possible given the limitations of the budget and the available technology he was afforded. Anything impossible was nixed from his story. Now the cast and crew reacted very favorably to wylie's very calm very easygoing demeanor during the shoot wiley. Says he didn't think anxiety and tirades resulted in making a better movie. If it did he would do those things but he felt it was counter. Intuitive to work creatively with the lack of sleep or to not collaborate fully with what happens to be a much more experienced cast and crew given that he is a first time director because it was widely first film as a director. He he was like a kid and the actor loved his exuberance because he was willing to let them play along with him and join along with his imagination of where he wanted the story to go to stay very loose and fun between takes the actors all joked. Around a lot when they were working with the puppets. For instance the actors noticed that when widely yelled cut the people operating the puppets would stop. And that made the puppets. Look like they would just go limp. Like on the spot. So grossest noticing the puppets. Doing this. They would start doing the same. They would fall lifelessly to the floor when cut was yelled by wiley. That became kind of a running inside joke during those scenes. I mentioned that. The victorian mansion is not necessarily. Here the house happens to be richard sonian romanesque built in eighteen. Ninety one by thomas stimpson the former. Thomas stimpson mansion located in los angeles at twenty four twenty one south figaro street not far from the campus of over the years. It's been used as a frat house for a few years. Coincidentally also a convent for a few years. It also was used housing for students. At mount saint. Mary's college the interiors though were not filmed. There were filmed at laird international studios in culver city also known as culver studios coincidentally at the same time. That house creator fred. Dekker was at the studio shooting. The monster squad so widely and decker. Who were good friends. From the time of their childhood they would visit each other's sets during the making of both of their films now. How does have a kitchen sink approach to entertainment. It mixes a lot of slapstick. Comedy with the indiana jones type of venture. You get vibes of indiana jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull way before its time because of the use of crystal skulls here a lot of old western tropes swashbuckling action. Dinosaur movies also appear in this film widely here is establishing a house in which normal rules. Just do not apply widely in minor. They had discussed during the making of house. That one of the strengths of that film was that anytime. Somebody entered a room to audience. Actually didn't know what to expect so in house to while he wanted to continue on that tradition so each time the enter a new room. It's like a portal to a new dimension. Some of them will be scary. Some of them funny most often funny to try to keep audiences off guard. The enter the old west or an aztec tampa or prehistoric jungle. You can go to almost any timer place within the rooms of the house here now house to has an all new cast in front of the camera the crew behind it does remain largely intact from the first film. Yeah cinematography once again. Handled by the wonderful mac. Ahlberg production designer. Greg fonceka also got to stretch his imagination across multiple and widely varied alternate dimensions on this. Very ultra tight budget here special effects were designed here by chris. Wiley had worked with wailers for a couple of years on gremlins and he really begged him to join him on his first feature house to weightless did accept because they were friends on the condition that none of his designs would be changed. Weightless had just worked on three consecutive very demanding high profile gigs in gremlins enemy. Mine and the fly. He was creatively exhausted. He needed something to do. That would be much more fun relaxed. So due to the lack of budget though wales did have the keep the crew that was working with him small and he also had to limit his own hours that he build. Sometimes he would spend free time helping out his friend wiley and because wiley had learned how to shoot puppets from wales. They were very much instinct on how to set things up before each scene unique creatures were on the docket such as a katter puppy that is a caterpillar in body with the head and tail of a pekingese puppy widely came up with the caterpillar idea. Actually years back not for this film. Specifically he was studying designed with wireless to give him inspiration. He would visit zoos and aquariums to observe animal shapes and movements and during that time he meant to sketchy caterpillar but he noticed that when he sketched it. It looks somewhat kanai because it had kind of a dog tail so jokingly he kind of went with that drawing any drew a dog head with that caterpillar wti katter puppy and he showed it to wayland at the time was a terrible concept but he did admit it was very funny and that anything goes nature of house to gave wiley the perfect opportunity to finally use and to make his mentor. Wales actually bring it to life now. Another highlight is a two foot tall baby pterodactyl puppet that he used in the film they nickname bibi. The marketing department kind of gave it that name behind the scenes. We had a much more difficult time with this puppy because of its articulated wings it wouldn't fully close and the technicians arm also had to be side of bibi to fully move it that much more difficult for flying scenes or scenes where there were close quarters for instance a scene where it has to be inside of. A small cupboard was really hard to fit the technicians to kind of give it movement so they kept shots very brief in those moments phil. Tippett did get hired to try to give a little bit more action that you couldn't do with puppets he did about seventeen stop. Motion animation snippets especially a bibi. Doing such things as demolishing kitchen or running upstairs or moving out. It's jungle home. And many of the creatures using them. Film were cannibalized by huila by other creatures he had lying around shop. Wales also provided the zombie makeup for grams as well as slim he used a prosthetic mask. Created by mike. Smithson for grants because royal dana was a recognizable actor. Wheel is felt that he didn't really want to cover too much of his face and we were also supposed to identify with grabs much more his humanity so we should see more of his expressions and he would be covered with warmer tones. Meanwhile for slim his portrayal dean clever and he was not as well known as royal dino so his performance tended to sway much more toward over the top movement so his makeup would be much more exaggerated in wild the only input that wiley remembers galas on any looks for anything in the film was to give slim razor long red hair like willie nelson who he was a huge fan of. Now's to when it was released. It disappointed at the box office. Despite all of this effort it debuted at a lowly number nine. The first film just about tied for number one when it was released but that was back in february. This was during a jam packed summer slate in one thousand nine hundred seven so in the end it had trouble finding oxygen at the box. Office in only grossed just a little under eight million dollars in the united states picked up another coupla million dollars overseas the humor here. I think it misses the mark more often than not. The characterizations are just too bland to really stand out fully. Despite all of the energy that the actors give to their roles there were atlantic comedy aspects to the film between young jesse and his girlfriend and then an old flame waiting seemingly later. and then. there's this aztec princess play by vasquez. Those are all dead on arrival. Just buddy he's kind of deliberately overbearing but he's never quite as funny as jonathan stark seems to be portraying him. The two older character actors in this film. I think give the best moments royal. Dino brings a lotta sparks of life to his character of grabs however the materials never quite as good as the performance that he's giving to it. I think the biggest highlight of the film in terms of performance. This john ratzenberger. He's very memorable in this film very witty but unfortunately ratzenberger's not quite on screen long enough to save the film from its mediocrity in most other respects bill maher. He's good in his smarmy role but he also doesn't get to deliver very many laughs in that particular style of roll anyway for the rest of cuteness on display. But it's not quite enough to fill a ninety minute fantasy into something you haven't seen before and done better in a lot of other films of the nineteen eighties. Although audiences who did see how to as children still retain a lot of fond memories of it some call it eight goosebumps story before r l stine's book series called goosebumps for kids came out starting in the early nineteen ninety s now. Cunningham is dated that house to it probably failed to succeed to the height of the first film at least financially and critically despite some nifty ideas that are thrown out here because the horror elements were just deemed too soft for the audience that they were targeting in their marketing. People expected a little bit gory or a little bit darker and that was something that they were going to go with in the first iteration of this film but it seemed to be with each revision wiped away into going much more a comedic route and unfortunately house to doesn't really achieve a good balance of scares and laughs and goes mostly for laughs most of the time but the humor value here is very mild. I mean wiley. Wrote the script and a very short amount of time and he was revising on the fly so he was relying on a lot of actors to improvise a lot of the stuff and unfortunately not. Everybody is gifted as john ratzenberger or even jonathan stark in doing so. There's definitely an energetic silliness to the film. Goofy characters asians. I don't think they're going to get you very far without a coherent storyline to wrap these things around. So even if you find it. You know modestly amusing. I don't think there's enough palpable tension or suspense. To really keep you interested in the main stories. So you watch it. There's a collection of funny scenes and funny characterizations but in the end it does fall short. And that's why. I can only give house to the second story. Two stars out of four stars in moscow means that is lacking something vital that we keep it from being the kind of movie that i recommend to most people and that which is lacking here is a very funny script ethan. Wiley is actually very funny. These very talented. But he just didn't have enough time to get it all together and his focus was definitely much more on trying to direct this film and get it to the finish line with a very limited budget and unfortunately that resulted in a film that is often out of focus and doesn't always make a lot of sense so house to you is unfortunately a two star effort at least by my scale of things if you saw this when you were younger. Maybe you have fonder memories as i mentioned. Now if you're a fan of the the cast every gross in jonathan stark actually worked together again on ellen in the mid nineteen nineties. Stark happen to be a writer and producer for the tv. Show ellen and gross was a regular actor. At least for the first two or three seasons a screenplay was written by alan warriner commission by shawna's cunningham to be house three who is going to be a follow up to this but the lackluster results of house to made it get overhauled by leslie bowen to a much more sinister in darker or flick called the horror show it would be a standalone film in the united states but in many parts of the world it was still dubbed house three because of the pre existing distribution inroads there so that when there was an actual follow up to the first house film. They have to call it house four. That came out in nineteen ninety two despite their never being an official house three in the united states so it became very confusing for whatever fans actually remained house three by the way or the horror shows directed by the visual effects. Supervisor of house to jim isaac who happened to be friends with ethan wiley from the great school days in marin county so it continues on i will eventually review house four but it will not be the next episode because he takes place in one thousand nine hundred. I'm going to reserve that for my other. Podcast to the ninety s and beyond so at some point in the future you will hear my review of novelty right away. If you have your own thoughts about house or house to you can write to me from my contact information at my website. That's quicker dot net to wip s. t. e. r. Dot net leads to my twitter. Feed my page and instagram are also. They're worried include extra bits of information about the films. And if you want to get in touch with me and my recommendation is to write to me. You can find my contact information. My email address at my website just to let you know. It's quick stor. With w which stor at gmail.com if you ever want to get in touch as far as what. I'm going to be covering next week while we're going to go straight very well away from the comedic aspects of the haunted house series of house to film that came out in nineteen eighty and it's very well regarded by horror movie fans although it doesn't really quite get a lot of the praised at a lot of other horror films of its era. Tend to get like amityville horror of the shining but it definitely should be talked about in the same sentence as those films. in fact martin's crecy calls one of the most scary films ever made. I'm talking about one thousand nine hundred eighty s the changeling featuring george c. Scott if you haven't seen it definitely recommend checking that out before. I get to the review on the next episode. The changeling from nineteen eighty. But until then thank you so much for listening and joining me on this trip around the world in eighty s movies..

She lost all sense of you know what's what's wild and what's protecting yourself, protecting herself and preservation.

"To the Glenn Beck program. You know, there's two stories that we really haven't talked about very much we've mentioned but still I know you did a whole monologue last night. Great monologue on Stew Does America Um, you did a monologue on the the IRS Hack, which is which is weird. How how? How did these outed propublica or public A. As you said, Um, how? How did they? How did they get this information that that would be illegal? That would be obtaining information illegally, which I know Twitter would immediately stop. If that were true. That's right. That's why they pulled the hunter Biden laptop story down, and I'm sure why they're not covering Hunter Biden using the N word, multiple times and text. You see Glenn, it was hacked information it was illegally obtained and therefore they can't go along with it. Unfortunately, that that standard does not apply to the world's richest people, because, as they explained it, it's in the public interest. As if Hunter Biden using the N word is not in the hunt. It's not at all the public interest. It's in the public interest, and you know what I care? Yeah, I care less about that part of the story that I do then all of the all of the criminal activity that he's been involved in, because I mean, I think there's a legitimate question that some people asked. Like, why do we care about Hunter Biden and if he does bad things, he's not the president Well, because he is related to a lot of these things that Joe Biden was related to. It's not about Hunter. They're about Hunter. I care about Joe Biden. But, yeah, I mean, the way they acquire these is part of it, but their complaint Over what these tax rates are. I mean, they're outwardly trying to manipulate the public into thinking they're paying, like, you know, 0.1% when they've just decided, decided to come up with this brand new statistic, which is to divide the amount of taxes paid against the wealth. We don't have a wealth tax in this country. Everyone knows that. I mean, Elizabeth Warren wind about every day, so they just are trying to make it look different. Uh, you know, they make it look like they kept outwardly comparing. They're like, Well, the average person pays, you know, 16% an income tax and these guys are only paying 0.1%. Well, you're talking about a totally different number. Right, like it's a wealth tax in in in their mind, So I mean, it's own journalistic malpractice doesn't even cover it. I We happen to have somebody on the phone that just called in that I think can speak to journalistic malpractice like crazy. Her name is Katrina Pierson. She was a spokesperson for the 2016 Trump campaign and senior adviser to the 2020 campaign. She is actually in Dallas this weekend. She travels a lot. She's going to be back in her own town Saturday to speak at turning points. Young women's leadership conference if you haven't got your ticket yet, You need to. It's a young women's leadership conference. That really is really, really good with some top voices, including Katrina. If you don't have your tickets, go to tp usa dot com right now. Katrina. How are you? I am doing amazing. Thank you So much for the intro and I'm so excited to be back in my home state of Texas with thousands of young women from across the country. So I want to talk to you about some of the news of of the day. But tell me about the conference a little bit. And what is, uh, what you're covering what others are covering Who should come? And why should they come? You know, I think any young woman who is paying attention should come to this conference, mainly because you know some of the topics that you've been covering on your program, and many others are so important for the future of young women in this country who believe and conservative values. This particular conference is being put on by turning point if the second largest student gathering And I'm just so excited to be a part of it. Because these young women need to know that they're not alone. We cannot allow the media to silence our voices. We have to be strong and people like myself and so many others. Are going to go and speak to these women. We're going to talk about the things that we experience and encourage them to continue forward because, as we all know the media is not getting any better. Censorship is actually getting worse, and we're going to have to fight for our country fight for the politicians who are actually going to make a difference, and that's what this weekend is going to be about. I tell you, the women are being, uh, maligned, uh and just destroyed by the system. When it comes to critical race theory, they're the ones that are standing up. Usually, it's the moms. That are standing up in the school board meetings. And they're just getting hammered to death and called all kinds of names. And, uh, anything that gives women or men anybody. Courage to stand against things like critical race theory and to make sure that evil is completely wiped out of your community, I think is is critical because courage Is contagious, but is required at this point. It's not just required from us as individuals. It is absolutely required for every single candidate that we elect moving forward, you know? And as one of the original founders of the Tea Party movement right here in the state of Texas, I can tell you That there are more of us than there are of them. And we have to start showing up. Whether the at the school board at the City Council all politics start local. I have been functioning at the national level with President Trump for six years, and it always comes back to local Government. We have to be more active and engaged. That's where the left has always run circles around us, and now it's time to get back to the basics and engage in our normal civics. You know, it's amazing because people of recently said to me well, Donald Trump. I mean, he was the one that close the economy. It was responsible to close everything down until we knew what was going on. And he was talking about an Easter. The second thing was, well, let's go tell Easter And he gave every state the right to open up. They were pressuring him to do some sort of dictatorial, Uh, message and just take over companies and take over the states. He let the states decide. It has to be done locally. We I think we've already lost. To this 12 headed hydra in in Washington and really the only guy that I have seen that has the balls and the willingness to do it. Is Donald Trump. Everything else has to be done by us. Absolutely. You know Donald Trump. He got out there and let the states decide because at the end of the day, Glenn, you're so right. Our state governments are the first line of defense for anything When it comes to the people and right here in Texas, we lost three million jobs. After these unconstitutional lockdown under Governor Abbott of all people when we look at governor Ron De Santis, who's actually fighting and the first person that I've seen actually provides recourse, particularly against big text. He's going to right direction. So it's incumbent upon us to put pressure on our politicians and our elected officials to do the right thing at the right time and.

"Do but one second story, Carol, but it was an interim solution. Designed for pandemic and I don't blame anybody. I mean, if your Disney your Warner, you know, the movie theaters are closed. You've got this content you paid for it. You've got to do something with it, and by the way streaming happens to be something that the stock market lights and awful lot. So you say all I'll stream but they know that that's that's made break time and a place and again. I don't want to make too much of it. But if you look at the recent results In the reeds and the projections from the streaming services during the last quarter, as the pandemic has started to fade, you know the numbers for streaming of No not kept pace with where they were in the pandemic. And again, that's logical and people are still going to stream certain things. But for big blockbuster movies like I, Max does no one's gonna look forward to spending Saturday night on the couch with my parents, which to be fair, just like you're saying the narrative of the streaming guys. They're kind of talking their book. To some extent, I think it's safe to say that you're talking your book about people coming back, But I mean, what do you then make? Of all the streaming deals that are happening right now, where kind of on you know the edge of our seat waiting for Amazon to maybe announced that they're acquiring the MGM. No studio's lineup in library on so you've worked in mergers and acquisitions. You're an investment. You understand this world. Do you think this is just Cycle that runs out of steam. Or do you think there's real momentum because there's some things that changes but as a result of the bed endemic that will stay with us, and I think there's a lot that would say that streaming is part of that. I think streaming is part of it, But I think in a different way than it was during the pandemic, I think furnish movies and movies that cost less in a budget and have to find a specific audience. Releasing them directed streaming will make sense because the marketing costs are extremely Hi to do that. Reaching your consumer and in each market is difficult to find, And I think those things will continue to stream. Also, almost every studio Has come up now with a 45 day window. Where the stream 45 days after opening on, I think, if anything that's gonna make the content more valuable in the theatrical run more valuable to the studio, because, remember, how did HBO get started? How did How did Netflix get started? They streamed Hollywood movies. And those movies got a lot of exposure. Gotta brand got good word of mouth. I'm got brand recognition built Sequels, and then people paid a lot. To go stream them, You know, as I'll ask you a question named five Stream movies from Netflix last year. You know, I, um, by the way, it is a trick question because I was just in l A and I ask 10 people that and nobody could name five stream movies during and that's streaming when I was growing up. With TV movies, And then there were real movies. I think now there's going to be real movies and streaming movies. But two theaters have to do something rich to kind of bring everybody back like, Listen, I love that the seats got more comfy that I can stretch out like that has. It's a reason for me to go to theaters. I know people who it's become a real date night, where there in a little cocoon and there's drinks and their food, and it's like an experience. But you know, I don't know if that's just the minority or do the majority wants something wrong? You know more that You know, experience experiential aspect of it. Does it have to be amped up? Yeah, I think it does. And I think that's why I Max is doing really well. So if you look at our results in Asia, our market share has gone up in virtually every country post pandemic because I think People will have been watching in their living rooms and watching their televisions when they leave. They want to do something really special. So I think you know, that's why I Max has been very successful over the last number of years, and that's why people be even more successful during this because Filmmakers make these big films to be seen on the big screen and to be heard with the big sound. And, you know, I think you're completely right. And, um, you know, God knows, I hope You're even more and more right? Because we'll be a better fishery of that tribe. Hey, rich. I'm wondering how your business changes how the economics of I max changes when you have more consolidation within the studios when Discovery And, uh, one or media are tied up. If Amazon and MGM studios are tied up, Are they going to charge you more? That night. You have to look on in a very individual basis. So discovery made unscripted content, and none of that really went into the theatrical ecosystem. So by merging with Warner, you're not really losing a studio. You're getting. Actually, I think a more pro theatrical management team behind one of the best studios that's existed for a long time. I think if Amazon ends up buying MGM They're buying it for their you know their expertise in television program, which programming which fits perfectly with Amazon prime strategy. I don't think Amazon is gonna start putting bond. On your telephone. I mean, I just don't think that's the way I'm double of seven or order. The broccoli family, which owns a lot of those rights wants to see that franchise go. I mean, MGM has not been in the blockbuster business. Except for bond for a while. They've been really in the TV business. I think it makes a lot of sense for Amazon and fits right inside. I don't think there's gonna be a loss of contact. No way wanted to also ask you about working in China. I mean, you've been in the market you have figured out a way forward and I feel like he gets More and more complicated between the East versus the West. Particularly when you're talking about China. There's a story it's among the most read on the Bloomberg Today about actor and former W W E champion John Sena, apologizing for describing Taiwan is a country in a promotional video that he did for his latest movie.

It's senior management team is Chinese. We've been one of the most successful Western media companies in China. On guy. I think the reason for that is because we haven't tried to come in and be a U.

So we've taken a different approach and I think it's worked for us. And I would expect that other people gonna learn from that and take a similar approach..
