Chris Kohls and Sebastian Discuss the Monster in 'Predator'
"Talk about this monster, Kevin Peter hall, 7 foot two, by the way, who moves. I mean, he moves, he's not like Chewbacca, like this lanky awkward person. He is athletic. I mean, the late Kevin Peter hall, when he's jumping from Locke to log, you go do, that is scary when he's lit up by the explosions behind him. He sells it so well. And it's shocking. I was watching the timer through the whole thing. You don't even see him until minute 44 or something, and even then it's the camouflage version, talk to us about the monster. Yeah, and actually the first time you really see the monster without the camouflage, the invisibility cloak or whatever. Is the moment where he's attaching some kind of mechanism to seal up a wound. Yeah, he's putting on a ton of putting on a tourniquet. To sort of, yeah, like a sci-fi tourniquet. And I screamed. And it just cuts to him for a quick second. And it's such a, I mean, here's the thing about monster movies, right? You want to hide the monster for a while. Yes. Because you want to build up the suspense. What does it look like? What does it look like? That's what they did with jaws, right? And alien. At alien, the problem with this technique is that 99% of the time, the monster does not live up to what you've imagined in your mind. Right, because your imagination is always always better. Always better. Always better. Not here. Here, the monster is scarier than what you imagine. You're like, holy boat, what is that, you know? I forget the guy who Sam Winston's. Do you know how they came up with the design? I think I read somewhere like he was on a plane with Eric Eric Eric Eric educated me. I am shocked. I thought I was the biggest movie nerd in this building. Eric educated me three days ago. Tell us the story, Eric. After the John Claude Van Damme in red tights didn't work, how did we get mister mandible? Stan Winston was sitting on a plane flying back from the location, I believe, and doing just sketches of what the monster could look like. And he was sitting next to his buddy James Cameron, who, of course, they worked together on a terminator and aliens. And Cameron looks over and says, oh, what's that? So it's like, oh, it's for a picture I'm doing. He explains the plot explains the monster. And Cameron just kind of makes an offhand comment. He mentions, I've always wanted to see a creature with mandibles and that, of course, ended up in the final design.
AJ Benza: Fame is a Bitch
A Recipe for a Hollywood Fight
"Michael viner was the owner of dove publishing. He had a number of decent books that came out in the 90s, the most famous one was you'll never make love in this town again. And when I was dating Jermaine Jackson's ex-wife, Margaret Maldonado. She was working for him at the time, but for Michael viner. And one day she sneaked me in early copy of this salacious book, and no one had seen it yet, Margaret got the proofs and begged me not to show or tell anyone about it. I said, no, no, I won't. I'm not going to write about it. I just want to read it myself, okay? So I go back to the hotel or wherever I was and start reading this book and the proofs and maybe two years ago, I read a couple of the more filthy chapters on this show. The book contains a bunch of stories written by three prostitutes and one actress about this sexual encounters with a bunch of different Hollywood celebrities. There was a Robin and Liza grier, Linda Hammond, and Alexandra daddy. And inside are all these lurid tales of what these girls discovered while having sex with the likes of Nicholson Warren Beatty, Don Henley, Bruce Willis, Robert Evans, John Claude Van Damme, Mickey Rourke, on and on. And a very, very detailed stories. Whether they're all true or not, I don't know. It's just the horrors point of view. So my jaw was on the floor when I started reading this. A couple of days later, I'm at Evans house for one of his great get togethers. Robert Shapiro, Geraldo Rivera, Jacqueline bessette, Beverly Johnson, Neil sedaka, a lot of luminaries in addition to the dynamic to all of Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty, who are always at Evans house back in the 90s, and now I have all this information inside me bursting out and I don't know that Jack Warren and bob know about this. And then my eyes couldn't believe what I was seeing. The publisher Michael Weiner walks into the party. And he lived a few doors down from heaven, so it kind of made sense, but I know all this information from the book he published and I grabbed Margaret and I go, what the fuck is he doing here? She's like, what's the big deal? I go, he's publishing a book about what a few hookers have to say about a few of the men at this party. But balls on this guy,

Oh definitely not. This is a amongst is competition. Which which runs globally with this guys that that chang for that invading joy just competing at that level but this a new thing called the laser gun c. Two which if you if you sold my vents on tv that delays on the excitement at the end Which combined with running shooting not in itself is just event. So i think you can go. I think they'll like lend you a pistol you can you feel faxing on and you can just let you have a go at that event. So that's being done Cities around europe. But now on the. Which one do you find the hardest. I at the five Weakest to begin with was definitely the whole siding. Like growing up doing Be swimming squad city so sports. There's not space to to be doing whole citing so so. That was the last one i got introduced to was the one that it took me the longest to come to terms with. Also it's it's tricky and the in these competitions in the olympics. you to even knew you've not cut. your own. horse is not standard for any modern pentathlon event. Yeah absolutely so whoever's winning off to the fencing in swimming we'll just drought a number and that is going to be you'll halsey just given a van damme. Who's an you give twenty minutes to get on and you can do five. Factors jumps off to that. You expected to to serve how to handle the wholesome and get down to show jumping course because there was. I'm i if you're listening if you wash the women's modern pentathlon there's this heartbreaking scene where i think it was the german athlete divorce. Oh my goodness that horse did not like her and wouldn't do anything she said. Poor girl was in absolute. Floods appears just went disastrously wrong and it was. It was so heartbreaking to watch. But i guess you can't guarantee gelling with your horse yet. One of the one of the things as well. I think. A lot of people didn't realize his each has to riders so the girl who was on saint boy the Beforehand had was russian girl and she really struggled with it. a lot. distresses the whole so then when you have to get on a whole somebody like not particularly happy. It makes you of of gelling. Were they understanding how to get it around us. A cool safely is old difficult. so i'm yes light because she she's like a a good friend and she's one of nice skills in kentucky when it was just a difficult situation for being pulled Host which was just not having a good time even before she sat on it it just it was awful to watch it really was and also because you know 'cause she she's rated as a really good pentathol modern pentathlete as well so just must have been so frustrating for her.

"They gave address and blood of his own his own story and in his own way to kind of anchor this team you know especially considering the other movie right and so i. I thought it was really cool man. They're going to do all. These jokes aren't going to work. It'll be very offered so to see his his role he said you said he also i wanna plant. You said bloodshot. This is not vin diesel. This was this was this is this is van damme. More van damme. This is this is a. I wanna talk about we. We see. I was talking about like the control and freedom aspect. And here's the thing. A lot of people. And i saw this on discord and i'm in agreement. I hate animal violence. I absolutely hate it. But i hate animal violence more when it's done for humorous reach reasons because i think it gives people like this stupid kinda like idea to harm animals. It's funny this used the animal violence to depict certain things and and it's to show you that these things are bad and like you know at the beginning. We see the bird in the prison with savant and that bird is basically trapped in prison with savant and it is and then we see the free bird later. Looks like the exact same bird eating a piece of hot. So so there's this message that like you you can. You can live longer. And you're happy and you feel truly free and like even the birds in the in the president's cage that were burnt like they were cage. They were imprisoned and it was. It was basically showing you like being caged up and things like that it it can. It can end you. And i just thought it was even though i hate animal violence. I if if you're going to see something see something at least have like a deeper message to it. Like the way they put it into this as opposed to just like the hangover three when they fucking drive over an overpass and kill giraffe. It's like it's not funny to me or like blowing fucking pot-smoking dogs face and shit and get an animal's high after eggs and stuff. That shit fucking annoys the shit of me because i think it gives people stupid ideas to agree. Even the can't handle that stuff. But i see what you're saying with this supposed to be infuriated and like horrified and like these people like. Oh you're not a good dude exactly. You're not you're not necessarily the best guy here. Are you know the sound of those birds. Burning was one of the most terrifying audio sound like it made me so uncomfortable. And yeah if you wanted to do the kind of the instant karma aspect with the yellow bird in sant- yeah he kills the one and then there's another one a little while later picking it as corpse. Yeah i saw another thing. I wanna point. Jake is like when they start playing the jim carroll band. Those are people who is jake. Swear on a past episode. I said that they need to play that song in suicide squad movie and it. I'm almost positive as well. Yeah yeah i was like. They need to play that fucking song.

The cynicism of trying to force a global event in the middle of a pandemic in that place that has doesn't have the vaccination rates that it needs because again a lot of countries are warning them and yet pfizer being like two third dot. You know or visor money to third check but we'll see there's so many things happening which is why it's in the zeitgeist has it. Were okay before we go. I just want to touch on something. Just the power of john. Claude van damme Because earlier this week imm peres. A man got away with like up pretty brazen robbery at a very famous jewelry store by the gray haired man who is wearing a grey suit and tie expensive other shoes a surgical mask to hide his identity. Waltzed into the lvmh chaumet jewelry shop jewelry. Ooh as jewelry. Showery on tuesday and sec. Several expensive pieces. Police say he had made the day before under a false name using false documents that proved that he had the funds to pay for more than one million dollars in jewelry as is required to make an appointment at a place like that once. The jewels were on the display table. Oh you thought it was. You thought it was killing mike. Good because he said run those walking jewels he pulled a gun out and stuff the gems into a grocery bag before swiping the dealer security badge and a to leave the locks store. He then made off on electric scooter. He had parked outside easily melting into traffic to make his escape. Like what the fuck happened. This man just casually got on a fucking scooter and zipped off to like meet. His other accomplished with millions in jewelry. Will what the fuck happened coat. Witnesses at an adjacent cafe who could have helped identify him. Were distracted by the presence of actor. Jean claude van damme who had just entered a local optical lens. Crafters loans craft das- shit. Someone like this. Just been robbed shocking. Vandana believe it. I can't believe if feels like a scene in john. Claude van damme movie. Where like you would have done something to create a distraction for like the to go off. but i'm just. I'm just really surprised that he is really turning heads like that in the midst of a brazen jewelry robbery. Everyone's like i mean. How the fuck could we have known. Jc vdi was walking. I think he was getting new. Lenses and his sunglasses their prescriptions. I think they're percents that he's wearing so he's not messing around. But because peres has like the wild cici tv system they were able to have just very casually track him and they found him at a rest stop where he was trying to get on a bus to serbia with another accomplice. And they think that he may have Unloaded a lot of the jewels. Already sold them before he got on this bus. So that's why we need our cities to be heavily surveilled. Exactly saying this. that's why we need a band. John claude van damme from the streets. That was manly. Everyone should just get a cardboard cutout of him in case there ever like cotton a situation just like throw it. I mean i get it. He's i believe he's from belgium right because they call him the muscles from brussels Back in the day so much about his life. I just know. Hey euros again. Can you tell me is. Is that really a neck breaker to c. j. c. Like that. Because i feel like flip. It wasn't there like an amazon show that was made about him called. Jcp d. like that was very tongue in cheek about like him just being kind of songklod his curb your enthusiasm and they played on accordion to you badge. What does that show look like a if there was a a curb type show but it was about zhong. Claude van damme's world abby. So good what does he like getting mad at like other martial artists who are doing splits and he's like the birthday party derivative like okay sir but anyway good luck to him and i love to see his career keep going on.

"I'm sure part way through the semester van damme was feeling a little concerned. Sure i was working fine but it didn't look like it was doing much beyond what would have been accomplished in normal class but then he noticed something strange. I was starting to eat through a lot of disk space a lot more than they expected looking into the matter. Van damme realized that while students may not have been making many new links. They were creating a lot of comments questions and responses to each other by the time the semester was over students in the experimental group had written more than twice as much as students in the control group. The study's final report makes it clear that this was a yo be unexpected result sixteen was designed as a critical reading course. There were assignments that involved rioting but that wasn't the main focus so what was going on primarily students were engaging in dialogue with each other. I was being used as a tool to enable better communications as a conduit to connect students and form of virtual community more than just idle chatter on the terminal. These dialogues were helping. Learning outcomes in the final report. Shows wrote this and just to make things a little clear it starts with a quote from a student quote. Several students in the class said things about this poem. That were just as helpful to me as anything i read in. The professional critics in quote shows continues. Now when we reached that point. I thought we had succeeded. Not just because one student had made a very good response but because the other students had realized that a student could make a response that was just as valuable as the response made by professional critics to the poem for me. This was an extraordinary moment. And i think a very important one and it says something about what can be accomplished with this kind. Of course they can hardly be accomplished in any other way..

I really liked but i i got that toward the end of mind nintendo time so i'd never actually owned it. I would just rent it every once in a while. But i thought the whole create. Your own team thing was really cool to. It was a really really good game. bases-loaded is still number one in my mind mainly because of connection i have to it in the number of times i plead it and how much i loved it and still love to play it so Another common i got was on an old blog post about. The sierra coco wheats cya grayson commented on cuckoo for coco. Wheats saying his grandfather who passed away started eating this when he was young boy on a farm in north dakota in the forties. He always had some when we came to visit in with us boxes as well. I don't know exact proportion but in essential things to addis condensed milk. I saw the water before. I put the coco wheats in. Shake them in while stirring after it's boiling continue stirring while it thickens and add the condensed milk. I don't know how much coco wheats to water. I can feel. Just the starring meets a certain resistance point. Yeah i've lately been making those for breakfast here. And there and i always best up in the microwave where they get clumpy so i had milk. I don't really. i'm not convinced fan. But i do. Add milk milk and that does seem to help but thank you and then there's what i missed a few years ago. Pretty sure i did. Not put it in my episode one one comment recap but i wanted to put it here Back in july fourth dug up by liberty we can post from two thousand eleven ten years ago and shared it out on the ttf cantina group in on the an reassured another pop page and there was a comment on there that i missed from twenty eighteen west.

You mentioned the song lady of liberty as performance shelly towns. What brought me to this article. Is that my late uncle charles. Blaylock wrote the song if you're still alive today. I'm sure get a kick out of knowing one of his songs that was heard by someone decades later. Thanks for sharing means a lot to me. that's really cool i Every once in a while like back on the one zero one episode. I told you about how like the sister of the guy who's the dr pepper commercials commented on my blog. Post a couple of times. I always love that. It's just and and this is just random. It's nothing like you know noteworthy celebrity type of stuff. But i just. I thought that was really really cool and i wanted to share it out all right. So let's get onto comments and messages about podcast episodes recently for episode one twenty. I talked to my friend chris. Lynam about wasted time has pumped banned from back in the nineties. Here are some of the comments. I got on a episodes. These are all from former classmates of ours. pat mueller said. That was great really. Well done chris who knew my early eclectic. Music tastes would have an influence. By the way. I still of the story of you guys listened to the green day. Sound check as part of your big break time. I look forward to listening to your other. Podcast jessica assurance at thanks. Tom thanks for sharing. Tom brings back so many memories. One of my best friends melissa. Ressano rodriguez said loved listening to this. And then jillian. David commented on the cover of chris's album waste time album. When was fun because the photograph is of her younger brother sitting on a swing set. She said al. Ll my little brother Honestly it was off. That was one of the best episodes. I've done in recent years And it was really really fun to do. And i really appreciated that. So many people enjoyed hearing it on episode one. Twenty-one donovan morgan grant and i talking about the judas contract aaron head moss said love this run On episode one twenty two shag. And i talking about uncanny x men new teen titans bryan hughes comment on a facebook saying sharing the scene where starfighter kisses colossus says. I'm going to point out here for no other reason that it is fun to that. If the roles were reversed here and colossus with the kiss star fire we would be hearing it described as the infamous sexual assault seen. Today i k. I don't think colossus would've tried to kiss our fire. It doesn't seem to be his character finally on episode one twenty three which aired last month. I have messages on. Facebook been comments on facebook via michael. Bailey michael wagner and an email from professor alan. So here's the message from my belly. He says love. The trading card episode was lot of fun comic images. Now that by the way was the spider man. Set the spiderman. Pack that i grabbed an open air. Comic images was one of the lower rung trading companies that started out doing sets on cheaper paper. That were just images from the comics. They step things up in one thousand nine hundred and started doing glossier cards. But the coloring sucked. They made the marvel license for a bit and did sits for savage dragon and youngblood that spiderman set will make your eyes bleed because of the coloring. Yeah i Those cards were not particularly and they all look like it was like you know when you try to do a copy of a copy of a copy and photocopier and zoomed into the point. Where you really can't make things out. It's it was not the Best best spent money to be honest. Michael wagner says about baseball cards. I was into don rusher baseball and hoops for basketball. Actually never owned any basketball cards. I had a. I had a very small hockey car. Collection will tell you mostly nhl pro set and then had a few football cards. I also i. And i'll get back to your milliseconds. Your comment of michael also failed to mention the company score that was like a fourth company fifth company that that existed and i had a few cards by score at one point or another but again not enough to say that i am out that that anything about two two collection. I don't think score really exist. They might have gotten absorbed by another company or bought by marvel or something at one point in the nineties. Anyway back into michael's comment. He says that he was a big fan of the premier upper deck baseball series. Two he says think my card with most valuable was the michael jordan baseball card. I pulled from pack thinking back now. It was funny. Pull the card from the pack. The card shop employee was watching. When i was leaving. I was putting my cards in my pocket so i could ride my bike home. He freaked out and gave me a hard sleeve because the card had value. Oh wow that's a good odour. michael says. I didn't get the freakout nine. Let the kids do what they want. It only has value three value for too many investors to make a quick buck but have poisoned the fun entertainment of children's hobbies. That is true. You know it's funny I can.

There actually is funny enough. There's a comic book convention ad those greatest and comic book as that you would see. There's so that's a legit comic book ad here and The you have an ad for cannon movie tales fairy tale things beauty the beasts puts boots the printing on. This is a couple of words that obviously looks like something didn't line up. And then the powwow highway which was called which the seattle times called the native american rainman. And then on the back of a candid video ad for cyborg which notes that john. Claude van damme was in predator. And this was something that I was like when i was a kid. I was like he's in predator. And there's i'd seen predator wartimes than i probably count at that point It wasn't until years later is that i knew that learned that. He was cast as the predator but early into pre production. It just didn't work out. He was complaining about how the the suit made him sick. He could move in it. They decided to go with. Kevin kevin peter hall who was much more bigger at imposing. And and what you got. It made him The elliott war. Like you didn't really have any lines. And things like that. But i guess because they damp had been cast in the movie candidate thought we'll put predator in there so I don't think that any footage of vandamme and the predator costume exists by the way. Not in these sort of eric. Stoltz shot fifteen minutes or so back to the future before they decided to replace him with michael j. fox and you can still see the back of stoltze his head in one of the scenes in that film sort of way i think they just they realized pretty quickly in the van dam was going to work out but anyway i wanted to note that promo comic because like i said i've had it for a long time at this point and it'll it rotates through cheap bins every once in a while at it's just kind of audie curiosity like somebody would put a whole comic together justice a problem for this movie an r.

"Then you get the final showdown. Fender takes off his chainmail bare-chested and they just stare at each other and really it takes like they're starting to the for like what seems forever and it's like totally dumb action movie scene but at that point of the film like i'm almost an hour and a half into this and i'm like let's do this. I'm all in the fight scenes. You know. I put any pretense out the window that this was a good movie. I just wanna see these to the ever loving shit out of each other and really. I was getting hyped no it. It's not the realistic type of fight. It's not roddy piper keith. David from What's it called They live but damn. It's just exactly what i wanted. You've got at including that jump scare that. He's not dead moment before gibson and fender wind up in a shed and the whole time. Like you don't see the meat hook that he gets impaled on. But you see chains and mike and i keep thinking i'm like those chains like they keep hitting each other in the shed and you see the changes of the chain like those chains are gonna come into somebody's death at one point. Either fenders going to try to control gibson with them or gibson's good a choke vendor with them and then all of a sudden like you see him kick him into the thing and you're like oh. There was a meat hook. They're like the his back is impaled with the meat hook and he's just like hanging there and that last shot gibson leaves the shed and you see fender hanging on the wall off the ground with the meat hook and his back. It's a really good shot. It feels satisfied that like yeah man he. He went toe to toe. This guy for like for ever you know just like and finally beat the guy and the ending with him essentially realizing they need me out there as opposed to can be safe with all of you is a really good one it. It is the sort of completion of this reluctant heroes journey etc the sense of mission and he walks off with with haley. Like i said i wish it would have been him haley and needy. But you know i still thought it was a satisfying ending and you can tell because i just spent much of this episode gushing over the fill it. It's just what i wanted out of it. You know. And i think. I think i liked it so much back then and like it now because it's one of those few early vandamme movies. That has a little bit more a story than usual. Because let's face it. You've got blood sport kickboxer lionheart. And they're really entertaining. But they're basically the same movie and if you go into thinking that this movie cyborg is going to be a dumb low budget violence fast and you put away any expectations that has to have meaning or be innovative or said a message or whatever we put up with these days. You will have a lot of fun now. Cyborgs on amazon prime. Or it was when i when i When i went to watch this. Although i will tell you that i did not watch this on amazon prime so i don't know the quality of transfer because i watched my vhs copy. Because of course. I had to watch the subway. Vhs copy you know. i mean. I wouldn't have it any other way if i if i could It does retain through streaming services here and there before i finish up. I have one other thing. This is really interesting. This was this was a comic book at one point. Now this it's it's it's something. I found that i've had this for a long time. I think i got it out of. I don't think i bought it off of iraq. I think i got out of a dollar seller a fifty cent sale. Or maybe guy got it for free as a promo comic. But cannon home-video actually put outs a canon video comic collectors edition comic called cyborg the star of blood sport in cyborg and it says adapted from the hit film. Cyborg coming to video stores september twentieth. It was essentially a comic book adaptation. That told the story up to the point where gibson and fender face off in the film. So you kind of have to in. The last pages has to experience the spectacular climax of this epic odyssey into the future. Watch for the premiere of cyborgs starring. Jean claude van damme videocassette available video outlets nationwide beginning september twentieth. So it was a promo comic to hype people up for the video home video. Release of the film. It's it writing wise. It's essentially the the movie just kind of like your typical like one shot movie. Adaptation of like okay shot for shot for shot like little bits and pieces. Kind of telling us the movie would trying to show to the art. The artist really bad. It's it's like you know there's kind of a likeness of some of these things. I don't know who did it. There's no real credits. The cover has van cleave and involved shoal in the signature but i. I don't know who the names are. End the ads inside the comic or all for future cannon who video releases and stuff like that. I'll get to this in a second. So you know you've got this really kind of poorly drug humming but as you flip through a you also have some kind of publicity materials. You have a profile page of the stars. So it's called the good the bad and the lovely backstage with the cast a cyborg. So you see john. Claude van damme. You've got to run out of his career. Dale hadn't career vincent clients career. It's where by the way. Learn how to pronounces name because it says klein say klein is a surf boarding and skateboarding. Champion and then debra richter roth mueller and lease long. Who were some of the other cast members you flip through it. Some worry you have a little bit of how weapons in the film were made and actually talk about like the things. I was talking about like some of the captions here of society and posting technology but high in violence Weapons and not too distant password blend together out of necessity though carefully..

"She starts off by just sticking with gibson because they both kind of have a similar mission but then they not only become loyal to one another but they avoid the lovers trope in fact. It's a really good scene. Were there camping for the night on the beach and she actually takes top office way to like offer herself up to have because i imagine that something she's used to doing and he refuses her. Yeah we got a boob shot. We actually also get a shot of her. she when they reach the beach and she runs into the water. Kinda clean herself off. And if you go to the imdb page for cyborg. It's one of the first images of the images of the movie thing. That's right on the page. So there you go you get to see directors ass but that whole scene with him refusing. Actually a nice touch. It gives a little bit of de gibson. He's someone who probably can't think of loving anyone else after what he's been through and it allows her realize that she doesn't have to do that much her death bummy out to She's not a woman in a refrigerator. You know this is the final fight. She's essentially collateral damage in the final fight. But it's another statement about the brutality of it. All and i do wish she would have been in the final scene like that that after getting rid of fender like him and haley had become like slinger team were something that would have set up a really cool. Like sequel idea were further adventures idea or something but anyway the final fight with. Let's let's look at that because it takes place after everyone's crossed into atlanta. It's in the rain because of course it's in the rain and vincent klein as fender and he was really how much acting experience he was a professional surfer out of hawaii. Like one of the one of the more premier for professional surfers at the time anyway. He's he's a really imposing big guy and he's perfectly cast because all he's there to do is to be the typical van damme villain van damme villains in a lot of his first few movies. Don't do much except stand. There look menacing and be enormous. Plus they have klein where these freaky blue contact lenses under the terminator style sunglasses and the church and that he's wearing he's also like chain mail over post-apocalyptic clothing which were bits and pieces of costume from masters of the universe Blade i think the character was or something the blade guy with the patch. So you've got this guy this imposing terminator esque villain and the fight. The fight just goes on and on and on you have gibson killing the henchman. You have eighty fighting a woman in an abandoned bar. That's just like they're throwing punches. They're throwing furniture at each other. They're throwing each other across the bar. It's really really good. And.

"Is kind of funny funny to watch it. But they're at it's like really. You couldn't write dialogue but at the same time. If i think about it there might be like an movie or in universities in for it. Oh yeah and okay dot kind of i thought this through right right so hear me out because actually makes sense so this is a future where the world has been completely decimated by plague. People are struggling to survive while there are people in this movie who do actually talk for more than a few syllables. The world is ruled by the brutal. Brutality speaks so loudly that words are unnecessary so in the final fight in atlanta all this raw animal brutal power to people going at each other. It's also to ultra masculine muscle. Bound dudes going at each other but really. I can't imagine that this is a world that verbalize is a lot. I mean the environment speaks for them. Children thought it through. I think Our director did as well because for movie which he was given only five hundred thousand dollars for he essentially looked around at what was left after cannon burn through that to mill developing spiderman and masters to and. He was like all right. I'm gonna make do with what i can say. Most of the fights take place on the beach were various hollowed out buildings or an unruffled strewn. straight-sets. I can't imagine it was hard to scout or expensive shoot in an abandoned warehouse plus the credit of pune. Whomever helped choreograph van. Damme's fights those action sequences are really. Well done yeah. It's a lot of punching kicking but there's a lot of really good knife fighting very little use of firearms in fact not many people. If any people are walking around with commando level armament gibson carries a gun. That looks kind of like the gun. That jesse tas it predator but if fires only one bullet at a time what i read it actually was a paintball come. They re dressed for the film. I can imagine that with five hundred thousand dollars to us. They didn't have to access to schwarzenegger stallone. Level guns and ammo but again in universe wouldn't work this post-apocalyptic world is lived in other words. It's been a while since society collapsed. And i can only imagine that. A companies aren't manufacturing automatic weapons in the ammunition for them anymore and be manufacturing the ammunition especially a lot of those whose eclipse. They've been used up right so knives. Nice can be homemade. Trust me my father-in-law watches a lot of knife making videos on youtube. And there's fights in the beginning of the movie but the really the second half of the movie which is really like one big long fight and chasing interrupted with a couple of like you know moments of pesos. It's all really well done of the the abandoned building fight in charleston. We got gibson in navy and and and you know they. She gets captured. He takes out a number of muscle bound higher. It's in various ways. He's got the rosa klebb knife shoe. Which looks really frigging awesome when he kicks it across the guy's throat but in this whole thing he then like gets completely overwhelmed. Because fenders gangs two dozen people. So you know there's in fact there's a scene where like he you know he gets knocked around and take it out and then you see like all the other people the gang you're like a. Wow there's a big gang of people so he can't take like everybody out. Not only that gives them just just get. The crap kicked out of him at various points. You see him get tired and it's not something that you're used to seeing from the larger than life action. Here's the day you know you know. Maybe john maclean and die hard. But you know arnie and all that you know it's like they're like machines they keep going through these things and when he's tired of beat up the villains keep coming at him you know. In fact pearl tells gibson that she'd rather stick with fender because yet gibson's a hero. She knows he's not gonna make it it. It makes total sense and You know that backstory put in which they flash back to a little too much in that like you know they have to fill out time in the movie or something for it but That backstory gives us that motivations to why he keeps going after fender like. Why doesn't he just give up. And i do have to point out like again. Just as i as i talk about this i i notice. I remember a couple of really really good fight scenes. Wanna martian the sewer one is pretty cool because there's a scene where one of those big hulking pirate guys is walking through the sewers looking for him and van damme is doing the split across the top of the sewer pipe and Has the knife. Like pointed down at him and the guy looks up. And you don't see him come down on the guy. You just hear the scream. It's a really really cool. See i really really liked that. And then again just the fights themselves they look they look hollywood at choreographed but at the same time you feel kind of a real impact them i just i just really enjoyed the fight scenes. Now talk about some of the other characters here Pearl hadn't she does a serviceable job. She she knows she's the plots macguffin. She's playing someone who is half robot at one point. They give her back story and that she was a actual human woman who volunteer to be turned into a cyborg. And there's some really bad like makeup and prop look of the cyborg there but You know a again. It's a low budget movie. You kind of excuse these things and she can act logical and not have to be the damsel in distress haley. Haley has two or three lines in the movie. There's simple sounding something that speaks to the lack of verbal communication. I was talking about earlier and also was a little kid when fender kidnapped her. I can't imagine she got much of an actual formal education among the pirates mary Who is played by terry. Batson has all three or four lines in the film and she's just there to be in gibson's memories is the woman he fell in love with and then watch die A little tree item by the way. Here's that batsman's dialogue is all dubbed over so. She's not speaking the lines in the final film. Somebody dubbed her voice voice over hers and she actually didn't know this until she took her family to see the film and the theater in fact a lot of the dialogue. and this is this is off putting it. i just kind of get used to it I it sounds like it was badly dubbed over. But again this for five hundred thousand dollars the standoff female character in the film is needy. Girl who becomes the robin to gibson's batman she's a scrappy fighter and holds her own a number of fight scenes. She's played by debra richter who's credits prior to cyborg are mostly television roles although she does play candy in the nineteen eighty david naughton michael j. fox cult classic midnight madness and i really liked her and i really liked her character..

"Nine at suncoast or saturday matinee in the mall in the late nineties so i eventually did get my copy of this in the late nineties after already owning blood sport. Double impact and lionheart Never had kickboxer and never had time cop. I think i had hard target as well if if i'm remembering these things correctly Only a few of them have Survived either my parents house or my house etcetera etcetera but anyway into my thoughts on the movie. It's look. I'm not gonna pretend this is a good movie. Impugns clearly doing a of mad the terminator escape from new york at a number of other sifi action flicks of the day. In fact the plot is very paint-by-numbers. It's one that really only exists is something to slow the film down between fight scenes right so it's not upper tier by any stretch of the imagination again. Neither was van damme. At least at this point the nineteen eighties action genre is defined by the megastars that had established and who would have huge box office hits and bombs in the late eighties early nineties. Arnie and sly top tier bruce willis probably as well because a die hard because he was their partner in the planet. Hollywood franchise shit. That's an episode. I can do a theme restaurants anyway. I mean nine. Hundred eighty nine willis was on the rise. He was just getting huge. Because i believed i heard was eighty eight so die hard to be coming out soon. Hudson hawk and then you get the last boy scout You know and he was A-list celebrities because of his marriage didn't demi moore and stuff like that but when you go to the level of the action start from the eighties and nineties. You have chuck norris steven seagal john club. Damn by nineteen ninety nine chuck. Norris had peaked. He was really on. Its way down. Braddock missing in action three was a bit of a dud guys. It's really a good movie delta force to which came out. I think a little later than this didn't really do much and while. I'm sure that there were a number of my late feller gen xers in early in the early millennials. Who have a fun. Nece for sidekicks with jonathan brandis. I don't think that movie did particularly well either. I think it's safe to say that. Walker texas ranger which started in nineteen ninety-three really was kind of the reinvention of chuck. Norris an enslaved his career from you know b. movie obscurity or see movie obscurity. So then you're left with seagal and vandamme seagal well. He and van damme were neck and neck through most of the early ninety s. But as much as i like under siege seagal being a massive asshole shines through in every single piece of scenery. He chews up shits out in his films now. Van damme has his ego. He's had his personal professional issues. But out of those three b. level action stars. He really was the one that had the most appeal to american audiences. He's very good looking. He's got a sexy accent. He could do movie martial arts very well especially martial arts poses. Yeah i know he was a professional kickboxer at one point. But i can't tell you if he's any good. I mean i know he has a good record but you know i'm i'm not. I'm not an expert on martial arts. So i don't even know if his skills on screen were realistic. But i do know that it all looked cool. You know he could do that. Split to a really high kick. You do that super kick thing where twirled around and kicked. His opponent is a finishing move. In fact he uses that as a finishing move into in some of his movies that it makes some great shots. And yeah. I used to try to imitate the moves. No i never succeeded. Yes i probably look doubles doing it. Anyway van damme slides into that vacancy. That norris left which is appropriate considering pune wanted norse for this film. Any carries it really. Well now what helps is that. He has very little dialogue and cyborg. Yeah blood sport had preceded. This van. Damme did have lines in the movie. But this entire film probably has more grunts and screams than spoken lines. Funny enough that's why it works. A kind of imagine directing van damme at this point was directing arnold in conan the barbarian. Okay posers your shirt off. good look intense. Excellent do a few karate moves also pose some more. Okay okay okay. Now now and i hit someone outstanding. Cut despite my starkey tone there. That's what makes cyborg work and really entertaining puny exactly who he was working with. And what he was working with a belgian guy who could kinda sorta act as his hero a bunch of people from the american gladiators touring companies villains. You don't write snappy dialogue like the commando for the big fight for people like this. You just have them say.

South carolina in hollowed out warehouse type of building gibson kills a number of fenders pirate crew. But he's eventually overtaken in discovering that discovers that not only is hailey the little girl from his past still alive but she's one offenders pirates impossibly his lover haley by the way at this point in the present day of the movie is easily. Let's say for the sake of things she's eighteen so there's a good decade. At least between the flashback and now butts it is probably a very Disgusting sort of death stroke. Tara markov situation but fender bender being good villain vendor is not a villain. You're rooting for offenders. The type ability wants to die even though he's a cool looking villain so this just makes him even worse so gibson gets away at that point um and he's about to say pearl with him but pearl says that she's not going to go with him. She says it actually is an advantage of going to atlanta with fender fenders stronger than gibson. She doesn't even gibson's gonna make it. And she knows that the people she's going to in atlanta have the capability to take out vendors gang that remains to be seen but she heads with vendors gang to atlanta while gibson picks up the unconscious navy. Who'd been knocked out in the in the fight and runs away from the gang with a couple of those guys in pursuit follows. That is a long chase scene in a fight in the sewers beneath the building and then on a big fight of beach and marsh land were gibson and needy kill a number of vendors other pirates but gibson is eventually taken down in crucified by fender on the mass of a dead ship. It's here were haley. Gets a good look at him for the first time in realizes who he is but she has to follow fender gibson experiences. The same exact flashback like they just copy and paste the scene into this flashbacks so we get stuff we've already seen while he's hanging there and And then also a little bit more the you know how he got out of the you know a little bit more of of the execution and how he got off the well this this gives him gets angry and he starts kicking it. The ships mask until the rotten wood breaks and he lands on the beach. However he's on his back and he can't get himself free of his restraints because they have shot arrows through his palms native who prior to gibson's crucifixion. Had been knocked unconscious way off in the marsh finally finds him and comes to his rescue. They clean up and they had to atlanta on the outskirts of the city gives it a needy confront vendors crew. All the pirates are killed and then gibson and fender face off. The fight is long while gives knockdown needy tries to kill fender but he kills her instead at one point gives it a hollowed out card. Fender slamming his head with the door. Haley yeltsin the stop which causes fender to put two in two together and realizes who gibson is he then attempts to kiss haley. The sort of like. Hey this is. The girl like rubbed infant in gibson's face but haley refuses him buying gibson enough time to get up. He eventually stabs fender chest killing him. He confirms that navy is dead and has a tearful reunion with haley but fender is not dead. Come on you seen these new. He wouldn't be and the fight begins a new. They eventually wind up in a shed and gibson eventually kills fender by impaling him on a meat hook successful gibson haley take parole to the scientists in atlanta pro suggests that gibson stay with them but he insists that the outside world needs him and he and hayley walk away. We close with pearl saying that. Maybe men like gibson. Are they real. Cure that humanity needs now. My personal story with this movie is that it's one of a good dozen. I watched in regular rotation when i was in junior high school. I did not see it in the theater. And i didn't discover it until my dad found that on the shelf of sables video empire and then rented it he'd later take me to seek kickboxer. That was my first in theory. Van damme film And my dad. My dad my friend. Tom and i really would go to a number of these movies with him when we were in junior high school Few the seagal movies a couple of movies. And tom and i would rent like all these things all the time. So we rented cyber at least a few times and it wasn't high my favorite van damme films that were at least that were made. During that like early nineties heyday. He had i would rent. It was hard to find for purchase until sometime a ninety six ninety seven. I was in college when mgm home video. Released it for purchases one of their like movie night collection Vhs tapes and that basically means that like you know they would do this. They would package movies. That were kind of like second rate like this into an put a little label on it they would be the discount flicks that you would find for. Maybe five ninety nine or.

"Cyborg. I said before. The break was directed by albert. Pune and star. Jean claude van damme. Who at that point had begun to make a name for himself because of the success of the mixed martial arts movie blood sport the movie as a bit of an interesting history as it holds. The distinction of being the final film released the actress by ken films. The fabled independent studio run by an outcome glow golden and europe globus. There's a lot of the following detailed in the excellent documentary electric bogalusa the story of cannon films basically by the time this was released in nineteen thousand nine cannon had gone bankrupt and the film was actually put into production in the hopes of making back some of the money. They had lost their attempted. Big blockbuster movies that bombed in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven mainly masters of the universe and superman four the quest for peace in fact cyborg was made from the remains of two features that canon green lit before their money ran out a live action spiderman film and a sequel to masters of the universe and because of the latter film this film seibert would actually sometimes be listed as to you in tv guide as masters of the universe to the cyborg it is not a sequel. The dolphin grin cult classic. But some people did think that because of the way that was labeled anyway peon was set to direct both of these abandoned projects When kennedy declared bankruptcy they had to give up the licensing rights that they had paid to both marvel and mattel So that they could maybe recoup some of their loss and in fact according to the wikipedia page he was actually going to fill both masters universe to add spiderman simultaneously but he wound up writing this when. Ken was like yeah. We're not doing that. And originally he had chuck norris in mind to star as gibson rickenbacker. Who is the name of the main character. But it was menachem. Golan who cast van damme. The film was shot for the very low cost of five hundred thousand dollars. It was shot entirely in wilmington north carolina. Over the course of twenty three days with some sets made to look like a destroyed new york city as well as the destroyed atlanta. That five hundred thousand dollars by the way was on top of the two million that cannon had already lost because of the props sets and costumes that had been created for those abandoned masters of the universe to and spider man productions cyborg would grow onto gross ten point one million dollars. It was released in august of nineteen thousand nine. This made it the eighty eighth highest grossing film of nineteen eighty nine making about a million dollars bless than police academy six but out grossing Meryl streep roseanne barr comedy. She-devil the number one movie in one thousand nine of course as batman with two hundred fifty one million dollars in domestic gross. This movie it got destroyed by critics especially roger ebert who put it on. His worst of the year list gave it one star noted that it was kind of unintentionally. Funny saying few genres amused me. More than post-apocalyptic fantasies about superman fighting for survival. Cyborg is one of the funniest examples of this category. Which crosses escape from new york with the road warrior but cheats on the budget now to add to what ebert said vandamme actually has said that he didn't like the film so much He was given three different movies By canon because those were in the pipeline already done forced to american injured three and this knee chose this this this much. He actually ended up being sued by somebody over this jackson. Rock pinkney who is one of the Villain pirate goons in the film lost an eye during filming when van damme accidentally struck with prop knife. Pinkney won his lawsuit wanted judgment of four hundred and fifty thousand dollars and i should note that before start. The plot that van damme himself despite not liking the movie was actually ultimately responsible for its final presentation. There's a director's cut. That was longer than an hour the hour to have run time. That is on the copy. That i have but this director's cut tested horribly Van damme then went to golan globus and he convinced the studio to give him the film to re-cut and apparently he'd done this with blood sport as well and had been successful. so that's what he did He made sure that there was a lot more. Focus on the action. And this is the film that we have a director's cut did surface in two thousand eleven or so as and had discovered lost footage for the film it had reassembled his film under its original working title slinger. He apparently had been giving it out on. A print on demand basis through his website actually has been had been working on a prequel called cyborg rise of the slingers but that film never came to fruition pune was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in two thousand thirteen while he is done at least one project since. The diagnosis of dementia has interfered with his being able to work cyber does have choo sequels There is nineteen ninety-three cyborg. Two and nineteen ninety-five cyborg. Free the recycler The latter was directed video. Flick starring malcolm mcdowell and head of the classes christine hodge The former is notable for the fact that angelina jolie was the female lead alongside alaska. Catas- i think that was released theaters. But i'm not entirely sure. I haven't seen either of those nor have i seen pune zone spin off sequel from nineteen ninety-three called nights which also has a female lead so my my focus and my and my attention really is on. Just this one film sean. Claude van damme. So let's go ahead and get into the plot. The plot is as follows. It's the twenty first century and civilization lies in ruins it's a plague known as the living death has overrun humanity. There's a team of scientists in atlanta at the site of the former. Cdc and this is a place for some of the main remaining vestiges of civilization exist. That team has come close to developing a cure for the plague but needs data. That is only on computers at a lab in new york. Since communications between the cities has been completely shut down. Someone has to physically go to new york to retrieve the data they sent a cyborg named pearl profit who is played by dayle haddon. She is a model actress. Who appeared on the cover of the nineteen seventy-three sports illustrated swimsuit issue by the way and she is accompanied by marshall's strat. Who's played by alex. Daniels they make it to new york and pro gets the data. This is all of this by the way told. In flashback at some point in the film as the film actually opens with pearl. Marshall beginning the journey back to atlanta from new york marshall is killed by a gang of pirates are led by fender tremolo. Who is played by vincent. Klein pro gets away with the help of gibson rickenbacker. And that's our star john. Claude van damme. And if you're kind of giving side eye to some of these character names yes. They are all named after various musical instrument companies fender rickenbacker gibson. Marshall pearl so somebody was having fun with character names when they when they wrote. This gibson is what's called a slinger. These are people who live in the hollowed out. Cities of this world may hire themselves out to get people out of the cities into safety over. The course of the movie gibson has flashbacks and has recurring dreams. To what is the greatest pain of his life at one point as a slayer he'd rescued three people of and i believe it's a mother in two kids after the father had died and he brought them to safety out in the countryside after staying with them for wire while he and the mother mary they become lovers You know sh. He's very good with kids as she knows etc etc however fender and his pirate crew found the house. They tied mary gibson and the the the sun up with barbed wire on the hung hanging. You know well. They put the barbed wire in the hand of little girl. The families whose name is hayley now They're like basically saying okay. Hold onto this. And they'll be okay and being little she was probably like i wanna see. She was like seven or eight years old. She can't like you know you see an image of the barbed wire cutting through her hands and her screaming in the three of them falling into their presumed deaths in the well Mary and the and the boy die. Gibson does not need climbs out of the well and this is his motivation through the movie because he wants revenge on fender pearl is going to have gibson a company to her atlanta because she analyzes him and realizes that she can trust him before. That rescue in that journey can begin. Fenders gang gets the jump on them. Gibson's knocked out and fender kidnaps pearl after he discovers. Why she's in new york as well as the knowledge she's carrying. He understands how important that is and decides to take her to atlanta now because he wants to cure world be better but because he thinks that if he's got the cure he can control something he can gain power by having it because it's what people want he essentially basically says i can become a god in that classic villain way gibson by the way. is rescued or woken up..

"And all pro a pro bowler the interception leader in the entire. Nfl in the year. Two thousand seventeen now philadelphia. Eagles formerly of the lions ladies and gentlemen dairy slack pickling was good. It was good how you doing man not too shabby. I just sneezed a couple of times. Because i'm allergic to the cable companies over charging people it's unbelievable. What's going on out here. Darius i just saw you i believe you were talking about you. Stafford with the nfl films. He is leaving officially now. We'll get into you by the way i want. You know we do appreciate you coming on. We think you're baller. We'll talk about your life as well. But i would like your thoughts on something. It's happening pretty topical here. Matthew stafford is going to the los angeles rams night. The guy who wore number nine put out a nine minute video via the detroit. Lions which basically was emotional. It was a beautiful watch. Evan fox diehard lions van damme. your. I almost cry me so there was. Yeah yeah me too. I got a little. What if there's a lot of people i think are about to be introduced to matthew stafford. 'cause when your quarterback for the lines are not necessarily on prime time television all the time except for maybe thanksgiving. He's an absolute stud. And i think a lot of people are about to learn that. Do you feel the same way as somebody that was shared a field with him. For what six seven years or whatever in detroit and he got mad they gotta gotta go be unbelievable down man on the la. He's a very talented man. Smart guy he will work hard and He's a great leader. Man lead by example. He approached practice. The right way Like i never seen it. professionals is a long time and he. He's he's the man what is what do you think he's gonna do to that team. And that offense obviously he and mcveigh both guys of alpha personalities. But it seems like stafford. Also is one of the tougher quarterbacks ever to play the game i know he played with. What a broken back. Like what do you. What do you think he does instantly for that office. Up thinking to bring a lot of like know accuracy. Deep ball guy He will carry a team man go he could take any low In low you wanna give him you know. Click gays comeback. Like i said for longest man. Staffer was only missing a great defense in our Around half a great defense. Becky continue to get the ball back when i was at time. Stafford was putting up thirty points. Defense flutie given up thirty points to as well so but guy that got a defender keeping twenty point under seventeen points under yes tap. Wanna put up clear. A thirty points easily. Isn't that something that's pretty interesting is. We're talking to darius like corner for the philadelphia eagles. Now isn't that something interesting to think about in this is coming from a corner. Who's on defense. Is that a thought. Hey if we keep them under twenty points are guys going to be able to get an. Is that a goal going into each game. Hey now greenwich last shutout. We want this but the realistic like. Hey if we keep this under twenty. There's a good chance guy's gonna get that. Is that something that actually goes through your mind yet. Easily may cause you know a you see the work definitely with guys like staffer. Long enough man. He gets hot seagoing man. He's unstoppable star any kind of way Making the easiest Hardest make look easy. And you know that's always a defense go to have a team on the twenty. Most of the guys honestly as a quarterback league wants big status scoreboard up. I'm not going to ask you about the drama. That's been surrounding your team. Because there'd be incredibly unfair to you. You're not involved in that but jalen hurts appears to be the quarterback going into next year for you guys. What did you see. Jalen that makes you think like okay. This guy is going to be our guy. There was moments of greatness out there. I don't think everything was as smooth on offense as out of the ball last year as we would hope. But what do you think like philadelphia. Eagles fan should expect from jalen hurts. That you've seen behind the scenes. It's like hey this is. There's a reason this guy's going to be our guy now because he's a great leader as a young guy came to a chip on her shoulder. honestly man no disrespect carson. But he always felt like that was his spot. You know Causing the great guy but he came into the yoga came into the room into basic on. Take over to the office. You know as Why not disrespect me. Just as in i want to come compete against you to become this guy and i want to be the face at his team. He always had a ball always had drive in that kind of separate a lot of guys that you know. He was kind of just determined. You know is competitive. Why not disrespectfully. It just like mom. Okay to compete. You're the best rocky for the team. That's all were you surprised at all. Were any teammates surprise to see him. Like what's he like that from day one Well we already saw that. He had a lot of swagger about him ignored college. That's what we use as the term. Now as you see a goddess plan college boy he got a lot of sway. You carry yourself the right way and you can see in alabama and he you ever had to take no game bitch at a at a taleban.

The Voicebot Podcast
Interview With Conversation Design Institute co-founder And CEO Hans van Dam
"Odds van damme. Welcome to the voice by podcast. Thank you so much for having me. Okay so you are. The head of the conversation design institute. Why don't you tell the listeners. A little bit more about what that is just to get them started and then we'll talk a little bit more about how that all came to be. Yeah so conversation design institute. What we do is really recognize develop and promote the role of the conversation designer. So we sort of envisioned at every enterprise in the world is going to have a department. That's going to work on a assistance whether it's chat bots voice assistance and are all going to have people designing these conversations. Deploying them and managing them So we really recognize that as a serious profession and together with the industry. Really try to figure out you know who's going to be working at department. What's the skill set that they need. And then we develop content for that so we have courses. We have a certification program And that's really how we try to position ourselves in the market as the leading training and certification institute for designing versions. Okay yeah that's great okay so for the listeners. Now they have that context. But you didn't just arrive at the conversation designed institute is like the first thing you've ever done so tell me a little bit about how you how the conversation zayn is came to be but like your career and how you move forward. You were just mentioning to me. You thought when you were younger pre university that you thought you might be a writer That's straight into economics. And and i think writing came back a little bit. Yeah that's that's that's definitely true. So for when i was in university i i went to university of amsterdam thinking that was going to be really studying economics and then i got more interested in philosophy literature and just started reading a lot and i was writing fiction short stories and i. I really thought. I want you know was going to become a writer a novelist and wrote a manuscript. Send out too much publisher Publishers stay did not agree with that vision So when it was time to actually get a job. I got interested in copywriting. So it's like what's something related writing. What does that mean so ended up as a copywriter at a startup. incubator through. Ace venture ops part of mit stanford v latte so. So i was helping out these different startups helping them with the proposition and writing copy for them but allow me to then learn about technologies. Well so got more interested in in the tech space Join a little startup. There was doing some video streaming completely failed so when that story ended it was time to get different. Jobs ended up in customer service really as a quick job doing social media for kayla dutch airliner. So fire go into airline and customer service. Exactly so that's it doesn't get better than that and the company though is involved there with see x. company which was a chat bot company Acquired by siham a couple of months ago so i joined. cx company and Day were doing still virtual assistants whereas like you and a so. You'd ask a question they probably would not answer The old school things on a website and all of a sudden like everybody wanna chat bots and got interested in that and became more conversational. Cx company at the time didn't really know what that meant for the content. Their clients had no idea what that meant. And for me is like i always wanted to write dialogues and know from fiction writing understood. The technology understood the service space for me. It became very logical to actually focus on that problem. So i started doing this freelance at a bunch of clients and then i met my co founder and they had a an agency and behavior design so they were a psychologist thinking really about how people interact with products designed design for certain behavior and made a ton of sense. Because they were already doing stuff with conversational interfaces as well and we really. We realized that if you have a conversation between an artificial brain on a human brain you know you should make psychology and technology equally important in all right and so we. We started playing around with that and we had an agency was called robo copy at the time so so we just got a bunch of clients got more experience about designing conversations Started a little academy which is really focused on chat bots and Got in touch with google. Wally brill that that reached out to us and he really took us under his wings. And explain there's a lot of the fundamentals of voice design and connected with other designers So that got us more experienced gutters to work with you know the best designers in the world and and learn from there and as we went on that journey we really saw that the education was a big part of it So we created the academy and now mission or honest. Really that you see that enterprises are looking for conversation. Designers does lots of people that are actually designing conversations. But there is no alignment job title skill sets. It's very fragmented service. Enterprises can't find designers designers can't promote themselves very well tech companies on the other hand. Don't really know who's going to be using the products and how to design freedom universities at university at the same time note that i have to train people for jobs in the future Don't really know what jobs are so. We really tried to seek alignment now in an industry of conversation design. Therefore for conversation design institute was a name more suitable for that as well. So that's really how. I went from failed novelist conversation driver
