"And whenever we see van Gogh's work, we think of his life and his extraordinary life, and that is really epitomized by this self portrait. I mean, let's think of the moment when it was painted. It was actually done a week after he'd left hospital three weeks after he'd rarely severely mutilated his ear. I mean, this raises a really intriguing question. First of all, he's turned to show damage side of his head and the vantage is very prominent and obviously part of the picture very much intended. And secondly, why has he done this self portrait? Was this the moment when one would think of doing a self portrait? He could have done a still life. He did other still ice at this period. He could have done a portrait of a friend. It was January, but he could have gone outside and painted some landscapes. And yet he did this quite large painting, the self portrait, Karen, why do you think he did it at this particular moment? You're right, that it's really, really remarkable and the fact that this is even more ambitious for him as we were saying because it is the only one with the recognizable setting. So he's really placing himself back in the yellow house, so some really grounding himself. I think very often his self portraits have been uniformly said to have a psychological introspection. But this is very much one where you get a sense that he's trying probably to come to terms with what happened by showing his bandage so prominently. But also trying to regain his sense of identity and he's placing himself both in this special place for him and also between the canvas, so his own work, and then on the other side, this Japanese print that we've mentioned, that was a really important source of inspiration for him. Now let's step back a bit and look around the room where we are now at all the faces which are staring at us because the exhibition provides a unique opportunity to actually look at the self portraits properly. I mean, we see them in reproductions in books all the time, and they often appear the same size that we don't get an idea of the scale. And with van Gogh's thick impasto paint and his style, it's really important to get up close and look at the works in the flesh if you like. And it's quite different from these now popular immersive experiences which seem to be popping up all over the world in various cities, where we see the images blown up enormous sizes because that's not what the artist intended. So when we look around the room, what does it tell us about the self portraits? And why did Vincent do so many? It's a fascinating thing. He was really one of the most prolific self portraitists in history. He did 35 and in the show we wanted to really bring together a representative group. He only made them over the last three and a half years of his life. And you can really see through the show, all of the different styles that he experimented with, as he was finding his own artistic voice. But these works are incredibly immersive. I hope much more than anything that's blown up. You.

"Hey there everyone. My name is ari in welcome to made of metal a motivational podcast. Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds so good afternoon or morning. Lovely people depending on what time you're listening to this. I hope everyone enjoyed last week's wonderful episode covering the indomitable tina turner this week. We'll be covering another figure that is forever immortalized in the history of the arts. This individual style redefined an entire genre of art although this person was not recognized for their contributions until many years after they're passing this individual did not create for the recognition but purely for the love of creating. So you guys know have to let you know. I love this story and have researched this person extensively in my free time because i've always been drawn to their art but also there's an added layer of mystery surrounding their death. I'm really into true crime too. So i really like this. This individual spent their days filling their time with helping to make the world better and more beautiful. This is a vocation that i find admirable in any circumstance but especially in the face of the hardships this individual faced so without further ado this week we will be covering the striking the stunning the standout vincent then hall. Which is the dutch pronunciation which are probably butchered. But vincent van gogh is how most commonly pronounced in the us. And what. I think most of you guys would know him by. Vincent van gogh was born march thirtieth eighteen fifty three in the picturesque netherlands. Countryside vincent was the first born to his parents so he was the eldest as they would eventually have five other children. Vincent's parents theodorus and anna. Were quite opposites in terms of occupations in countenance. Theodorus was a pastor for the church while anna was an artist who worked with watercolors. It was described that vincent's father was more subdued while his mother was more open in free. Vincent's childhood was spent primarily in a rural area surrounded by the natural world and countryside. We can see that. Nature scenery influence very strongly in many of his landscape paintings later on in life while vincent intended school for a short time. Dudas families lack of financial stability. He had to leave school and begin work in his early teens. Although vincent didn't receive much formal schooling thanks to an uncle. He was able to secure a job with an art dealer. I thought that little tidbit was incredible. As well that vincent was able to start working in the art industry at such a young age and with essentially zero formal art training vincent worked for the art dealer for about three years from eighteen. Seventy three to eighteen seventy six though. It was reported that he didn't particularly enjoy the customer interactions but rather the exposure to the artworks and. I absolutely can't blame him for that. So i'm sure many people would agree during his time. Working with the art dealer. Vincent lived in both paris and london. Two major hubs in comparison to his rustic home village while living in london. Vincent fell in love with the daughter of his landlady when he was around the age of twenty one vincent proposed to his crush and was promptly declined. This event plunged vincent into a swirl of negative emotions and he became moody and dark in his daily life. Vincent was quickly fired from his job at the art dealer after making several inappropriate comments to customers calling the art worthless in genuinely being unprofessional after losing his job at the art dealer. Vincent began working as a teacher as well as at a bookstore. And as a preacher. It was at this point. The vinson began to seriously consider following in his father's footsteps and becoming a member of the church. Thus began vincent journey to attempt to join the ministry and study in theology. As you can see from the career choices vincent was making. He was drawn to humanitarian causes. Vincent began to train to become an evangelist but after becoming frustrated with the program transferred to another region in belgium to complete missionary work. Vincent was passionate in all that he engaged in. This was no different with missionary work after an incident when vincent became overcome with the desire to give away all of his belongings to the impoverished people. He was helping the church requested. Vincent cease working on their behalf. And vincent was again unemployed. This was yet another blow to vincent self worth and he became even more isolated in withdrawn. The trouble vincent was having seemed to all stem from his inability to go with the status quo after his latest career setback. Vincent decided to pivot back to where he'd started in what he knew art. Vincent would connect with his younger brother. Theo who was an art dealer in brussels and focus his efforts on developing as an artist. Feel in vincent. Were quite close. As theo offered to help vincent with whatever he may need allowing vincent to focus on establishing his art form when speaking with theo as to why he was pursuing art vincent was quoted. I want to give the wretched a brotherly message. When i signed my paintings vincent it is as one of them. This is what i loved about vincent. Not just him being an absolutely prolific artists. But how endearing and positive. He was about humanity in spite of the bumps in hiccups on his journey and short. this began. vincent's incredible dedication to being an artist. Above all what isn't as well known. I think is that vincent experimented extensively with different styles forms and mediums. When you first began studying art seriously. He'd created mostly watercolours in a focused on his drawing. After moving back to the countryside to attempt to self study landscapes vincent realized he required guidance and lessons from others who had more experience in the field. This conclusion led to a collaboration with a dutch painter. Who specialized in landscapes. Name anton.

"A large and blown up that you could see the brushstrokes. You could see the emotion you could painting. Oh you are in the painting. Like i sure and the way that they paired the music to it. I do believe that they used you. Know his journals. And everything to match the motion match. What was going on at the time period in the paintings. It's almost like if you had a knowledge of what was happening there at the time than you would be able to kind of peace a whole story together but what. I feel like it if you weren't somebody who who knew a lot about van gogh to begin with but we're interested in art. You would like. I left this feeling like i really wanted to know more about mango. I was gonna say. Were you a big van gogh person to begin with not i mean yes in that irish i know the i. I know a lot about him. I respect. I really think that he's an amazing artist. I love the story behind van gogh and how you know i. I've heard that that art historians have looked at the view. And i think maybe you told me this We probably talked about this on year. About how the colors and the way that it moves looks the same as when you look at it through a certain kind of camera that senses like. I don't know if it's like electromagnetic waves or the thing about these things like that. The he drew the color drew the lines in a way. That was actually how it looks. If you're conditions yes under certain conditions and that is like so amazing and cool and awesome. But i wasn't somebody who was really emotionally moved by his paintings until this experience boy. That's what you want when you leave. An exhibit is like. Yeah but i will say that i. I do not agree with the price. And i do think that this is a problem that it makes it only. I couldn't afford this. I got tickets because my aunt got tickets like in la on the weekend that she chose like this was no way.

Call it an immersive art experience and It is a exhibit for van gogh where you really get to experience the paintings in a different way in a very up close and interactive. It's you know what. That's the thing where people got confused. It is not interactive immersive. And they say that. We're you're immersed in the painting but it is not something that you interact with their i. That's where i think people are confused. And i think that because of how it was advertised it looks like a lot of those like i think.

"Was just one is enough. No they're five is enough and that's just the. Us to there are more outside the us. Trill understand it. We have to go back to two thousand five or a computer. Programmer named david brooks came across reference to the dutch painter. Vincent van gogh in one of the dune novels. The book references the van gogh painting thatched cottages at cord. Ville brooks went to the musee orsay to check it out and became van gogh obsessed man so much so that he created a comprehensive meticulously constructed on my gallery of van gogh's work which is at van gogh gallery dot com brooks scannon displayed the highest. Quality reproductions of every one of van gogh's remaining twenty two hundred works and all of his eight hundred some surviving artists letters. The site became his job financially and emotionally then he started making friends that van gogh museums and historians and branched out and one of these friends emailed him about site that she thought he should know about called about van gogh art so this is a commercial site that sells van gogh shit lunch boxes and t shirts and like you get a reproduction of van gogh thing on whatever a stuffed animal or a hat. All of the art images and letters had been copied straight from brooke site and reposted here at this van gogh about bingo dot com to brooks. It felt like a complete betrayal and invasion kind of digital. But also it wasn't not at least in the eyes of the law then go died in eighteen ninety which meant that all of the mango images were in the public domain. For over seventy years so means it was legal to use and reproduce. Obviously that doesn't account for all of the time that brooks put into learning about the pieces and painstakingly scanning them and really becoming a kind of archivist of the van gogh works bricks called the owner of the website a tennis instructor named ernst coors to complain about it of course would not budge and without a costly legal fight. The rights of the works of art brooks doesn't technically own could be there exist there and there's really nothing that he could do. The battle of the immersive van gogh experiences is a lot like the contemporary equivalent to the battle of the van gogh websites of twenty ten and again twenty ten. Not that long ago but this one is on steroids. Well it's hard to know which van gogh immersive. Experience was the first some say. It was bengo gogh alive in twenty eleven. Most really didn't come about until after that twenty fifteen maybe and they all did okay but again. If you'd have asked me in two thousand fifteen had. I heard a van gogh immersive art experience. It'd been like no. I can just go see a ango in an gallery adn exhibition travel and have my own experience around this artist but fast forward to the beginning of twenty twenty one in the united states. We're getting taxed coming out of a pandemic. We can't travel europe yet. What are we to do. Well let's go to one of these things. i guess. This is where i started getting these aggressive social media ads for at least two different versions of the van gogh immersive experience. I've gotten them in facebook instagram twitter. Whatever one definitely from the european based seller and business chameleon fever so we're going to talk about fever but first we're gonna take a little break having your own home is awesome but it's also a lot of work. The good news finding help for your projects is easier than ever introducing angie the app. The puts all your home care needs at your fingertips need approach. Fix that emergency leak. Maybe find someone to build a deck or even set your seasonal tasks on autopilot. Angie can handle all that and more expert pros. Hundreds of home projects clear pricing and the easiest way to book and pay seconds. This is angie your home for everything home download. The app today peepers happening their advertising aggressively to me and others like me. Maybe you but then the hit show. That is emily in paris which just like paris and clothing porn uses mercer van gogh and films. I actually haven't seen this myself but this really bumps the sales and interest in mercer van gogh everything we get more reviews. We get people looking into what this experience actually is especially in new york cool okay. So fever entered the ring with lots of different things. It is a european based experienced selling company and this has tastes twinges of like fire festival. Stuff you're like. I don't know what this is. I can't really get to them. Their website is kind of allusive but they entered the ring with dining in the dark and their own van goghs zoom and in person show charging the highest prices of all of these shows think seventy eight dollars versus the standard thirty to forty dollars admission price. That's what was these experiences. Go for realistically and competing in the same cities and dates as imagine van goghs specifically if you really want to not ever buy a ticket to this. Go to fevers better. Business bureau page which is loaded with complaints the glimpse range from anything from the show not happening on zoom link being dead to paying too much money not being able to get a refund to going to somebody that they didn't realize wasn't even thing or at a different location or strange date or they bought a ticket to one thing and they got to take to something totally different. The company was accused of ripping off a boston media site to try to sell tickets to fever posed as a company called secret boston and with almost the exact same logo as secret media boston. An actual legit company that sells a literally the same product as fever and immersive van gogh experience getting sick of me. Saying immersive van gogh experience yet. So why is this all happening i. It's hard to say. I mean again. I think people want to go out. They want to experience something end of the story. Van goghs very interesting the experience van goghs art is very kid friendly. Think bring kids two different things i mean. His story is not kid. Friendly just putting that out there and making that explicit but all of this happening were all like desperate for experience connection and a lot of these things you know were inaccessible to us for so long. Also we can't really see a lot of his works in america. Europe is an open yet and of course above. All of this is making money. People love to make money. These companies love to make money and van gogh his works and his letters are all fair use so you can rip as much as you want off van gogh himself or any other immersive experience because it is there for the taking. It's there to make a buck off the public. I have a lot of feelings about this. But i think former art critic and visual artist william how he says it best. These experiences are designed to create crowd-pleasing versions of an artist existence. who didn't sell any work in his lifetime. There's an irony to seeing an artist who's worked didn't have that kind of economic value. Be turned into a tourist attraction. I'll say making money fine but at least deliver what you promise. You know if it's a scam if it's overcharging if it's undercharging if it's giving a lackluster product at least give people what you're promising them At the very least when you're getting essentially you don't have to license the material. Yeah you just need the bandwith of the internet and some time to make money off of someone else's work and we talk about other things that have happened other people we didn't we don't create. I'm glad we don't create the stuff that we talk about. That would be pretty problematic. We deliver what we say. We're going to deliver yeah. I think we're not. I think you're right about that. I think a lot of what we do mirrors this where it's like this information. That's free for the public. You can take it at at will and us with it what you want to use with it and about it with us. It's like the expectations are very low. You know with the idea of someone's whole body of work. Someone as iconic as vincent van gogh. I think a lot of people have expectations around that experience and around that art itself and not to say that it's right but there's this kind of a sacredness around these oil paintings from the turn of the century you know. I think there's a lot of things not the turn of the century older than that for the record. But i think it's a lot of things that people revere about fine art and when it gets exploited just like anything else gets co opted exploited. It gets it feels even more of a slight. And i'm not saying that's right or wrong but i think that that is perhaps some of the sentiment around the people who have complained about this company. You want to deprive people of seeing are you also don't want to fleece them for their money. Yeah them to do it and capitalize on the fact is like you don't have many options. So you're you're kind of in our death grip exactly. And i think texas monthly called it like walking into a screensaver. See really not getting much of van gogh speed. Some people just have an interest. In vincent van gogh. But there's a song by jonathan richmond and the modern lovers semi's kind of proto punk called vincent van gogh and if you need a little tiny something that i think we're kind of boost your whatever that thing. Serota boost the little happiness. In yes the bussat. Serotonin listen to jonathan richmond. He's a couple of version of the jangling. Version of vincent van gogh. I think it will make you feel better and if you want to who. He is if you see something about mary. He was the musician kind of playing throughout with cousteau guitar. Jonathan richmond kind of kind of an iconic post proto punk that yes so that's music trivia from fine art to something about mary..

The funny thing about this. The idea that everybody has this connection to. Vincent van gogh is in a way joe as she called herself is the one who created that. She felt that as she was sitting alone with four hundred of his paintings that she had inherited and hundreds of letters he was unknown at the time and she was trying to figure out how in the world to make this known. She decided that that's how she was going to communicate this to the world. By marrying the biography with the art and art historians have simply not given her credit for what she truly did the fact that we all feel that we have this connection to him shows how fantastically she succeeded.

On this one in tease us blockchain technology for authentication. Now this blockchain is the same sort of thing that you find in bitcoin right. It captures information and shares it with a network of computers and once shared. There's a digital ledger. That records the data across thousands of computers.

Am I Radical Enough?
"I think the one thing we can all agree on is that no one is happy right now with the way things are. But there's this agreement over how much change we can ask for right now. Like can I start to advocate for free college legalized pot? When like gay marriage might be repealed? I just worry that this push pull leaves me somewhere in the middle and settling for less. Limiting own dreams, what the future can be because I'm afraid about the president. I, just feel like a not radical enough. A recent example. So right now, people are rising up to protest against police violence and the phrase abolish the police or defunding police is really becoming an idea that is is much more mainstream sophia. No is an author and cartoonist who's been involved in a lot of radical activists, organizers circles. And so she posted something on instagram about defunding the police, and then I saw somebody else post something on instagram. That was like you have to say abolish the police. You can't say defined the police because if you say defunding police people don't know that what you mean is that it's a step towards abolition sophie. was what I posted not enough should I have said abolish instead then a friend of mine who's an older activists was like actually I think the word de fund is really important because it's it does represent a step and it represents an an action that people can understand as a step towards abolition, and so there's this back and forth about what is the right wording to use? It was kind of interesting for Sophie, that she was dealing with this dilemma because she just wrote a whole graphic novel about this. About how to try to be a good person in a bad world? The book is called the contradictions. One of the reasons I ended up deciding to like do the book is because I was sort of talking to friends of mine in the like anarchist scene we were talking about like when we first got introduced to like lefty ideas and. How those ideas came through people and how those people. Had An influence on how we thought about the ideas and like ideas can be perfect. But humans are fallible right? The comic is auto fiction. So the main characters named Sophie and it's based on Sophie's life, but it's not actually sophie. The book starts in Paris with Sophie having just arrived to study abroad. Here. I was age twenty. Character feels out of place and pretty quickly meets somebody who maybe alliance more with her background. So she's getting Abban. Sees. Somebody riding by on a fixed gear bike Fix Gear and makes the association that okay. After writing affixed here. Then maybe they're punk and if the navy there punk and maybe they're queer in like Ben. Maybe. I have a friend here. Fake. I saw you orientation. This person on the bike turns out to be another American in Sophie Study Abroad Program and they strike up a friendship. This person Zeena does not as clear as Sophie Hope, but she is opponent. Zina's Vegan. She is very active in like animal rights stuff and very vocal about it guy just broke up with worked at the COP with man we to sit outside and yell things like milk. It's full of US I used to be vegetarian but I'm Nima so I stopped. You could take iron pills or eat spinach character. Sophie explains that she's Tangentially associated with some anarchist or lefty friends back home and you know she's dipping her toes in into that world but hasn't really participated much and then Zena. You know she talks about having a planner full of activists activities and then she also gives Soviet. About these two anarchists hitchhiking around Western Europe. Everyone's making plans for spring break. What if we went hitchhiking? Taking a plane, the gas emissions are out of control and also going hitchhiking is more. Living the ideals I think I'll go vegan for the trip like in solidarity you don't have to do that. But I want to. XENA and Sophie hit the road trying to thumb their way from Paris to Amsterdam. Freeway insurance how? Actually exhausting and it takes ever. So that when they get to Amsterdam Sophie, kind of pulls out the map and it's like, oh, we could go to the end Frank House. I don't know. Like the Van Gogh Museum. Na. Dena just does not seem interested museums only showed the narrative of the victor and they are hierarchical thing that must be abolished or whatever. There's a comic shop. I'd like to see maybe we can walk there. Sure Well, they end up wandering around a fair bit. It's sort of the. The deflation of like we we did the thing and we're here and. Now. We're just here.
The beauty hall for 2020 is here
"All right. So normally, we always start out with skincare. We know that you guys are huge skin care junkies, but there's so much news make up that. Honestly we have to give it some love straight off the top, and we're going to start with none other than rare beauty, the new line by Selena. Gomez. Okay. So I did not get my package a curly, and so I'm very excited to hear what you thought of the line and what you think the winners are and just definitely part of this bigger trend we're seeing right of so many celebrities launching makeup lines right now. Yeah it's. True I feel like they used to be kind of like on the poster to represent like a new lipstick or something in these big campaigns, and now it's as though they've stepped out of the frame and they're really owning their own lines it really you know with Selena Gomez I know that health is a topic that's really close to her heart. So we know that one percent of the proceeds from this whole line is going toward increasing access to mental health services. So I, think just having like so much more integrity behind his lines as what makes them not just a flash in the pan. Committed to one hundred, million dollars over the next ten years. So that's a pretty big deal that's super exciting, and of course, we know that Sephora, is behind this line as well. It's exclusive to Sephora so although it's not one of the Kendo brands. So to speak I, feel like you know Sephora they get all that Intel from their customers they know what they want and they really brought a lot of I would say like. Thoughtfulness, to these formulations, I think that's where a rare beauty really wins. Okay. So let's hear about it because I know a lot of people were kind of comparing it to fantasy like one what's been your experience so far? What's what have you been? Loving. So my favorite product from the lot is the rare beauty liquid touch weightless foundation, and so that's the one everyone's going to compare it Fendi. It has forty eight shades except this one is only twenty nine dollars, which is cheaper than the fence is thirty eight dollars Canadian, and of course, it launched just at the beginning of September I really love it. So first of. All just tell you like what it is. It's meant to be a lightweight valuation that goes on Super. Naturally but it has quite a bit of pigment to it. So it will give you a medium to full coverage finish and I think we're all familiar with the bottle. We've probably seen it on instagram. It's as beautiful like it's got the sculptural shape to it. So it then bottle and then it has like this white ball on the top definitely GonNa look good on your shelf e and when you open it, what's really unique is its got this gigantic doe foot applicator like it almost reminds me of the applicators of those. Big Conceal that were coming ask chair. Yeah. Yeah and it's meant to be like a Serum Foundation. So you actually shake it and you can hear that click, click click inside and I'll be honest I've tried serum foundations in the past and I don't typically like them usually they come with a dropper and although there really lightweight there's like a slickness and an oiliness to it that I just do not like I I feel like that was like a a flash in the pan kind of a gimmick that I don't think those are going to last but this one goes on and it feels more just like a very lightweight almost. Watery Foundation without having any oiliness to it, but it is quite pigmented. So what you're going to do is you're gonNA put dots on your face like in the main areas where you won't coverage for me that would all over my tease own and then I, just used my beauty blender and blended in as usual and I really found it had a very natural second skin effect. So it's not particularly Matt it's not particularly Dewey it just looks Berry Notch, draw it kind of reminded me of the Bite Beauty Foundation that I really fell in love with lots year that all clocks right because it likes under Sephora I'm sure they definitely Yeah, armed each other. Well, I mean Sephora. So as an example, Nour's launched a soft Matte Foundation this fall as well, and the publicis actually told me that that was in collaboration with Sephora and that they were using all of the feedback from their customers to tell them what they wanted So that was a very different foundation. It's quite matt more like the Charlotte Tilbury airbrush break by yes. A We know that they're kind of feeding into that and that just makes sense I mean Celinas. Not a makeup artist. Maybe, she has van Gogh helping our, but obviously, they're going to be using the power of their knowledge to create these formulas. So I love this foundation I think it's so natural. This is like a new favorite for me but I think it's really representative of the line like what I noticed just having tried quite a few products is that it's like taking existing ideas like for example, the lip souffle Matt lip cream we all know a liquid matlab color, but this one just went on, it gives you a soft finish. And it's so comfortable. But what I liked is it wasn't thick. So they managed to get that pigment without having that thickness like I can never get a clean line with a Matt liquid color. I always have to use my finger to blended then and then you don't get that that nice shape to it. So this when you do so everything was like, yes already out there but this is so thoughtful and it's just slightly better
Why specializing early doesn't always mean career success
"Hi. I'm Elise Hugh. And you're listening to Ted talks daily today's talk features really fascinating research that cuts us all some slack. What I mean is it turns out you can be a late bloomer in your chosen sport or skill or specialty, and it's actually better for you in a lot of ways. The talk is journalist David Epstein at Ted Ex Manchester in twenty twenty. So I'd like to talk about the development of human potential and I'd like to start with maybe the most impactful modern story of development. Many of you here have probably heard of the ten thousand dollars rule maybe you even model your own life after it. Basically, it's the idea that the become great anything takes ten thousand hours of focused practice. So. You'd better get started as early as possible. The poster child for this story is Tiger Woods. Father Famously, gave him a putter when he was seven months old at ten months, he started imitating his father's swing. At to, you can go on Youtube and see him on national television fast forward to the age of twenty one he's the greatest Golfer in the world's quintessential ten thousand dollars story. Another that features a number of bestselling books is that of the three Polgar sisters whose father decided to teach them chests in a very technical manner from a very early age and really wanted to show that with a head start and focused practice. Any child could become a genius in anything, and in fact, two of his daughters went onto become grandmaster chess players. So, when I became the Science Writer at sports illustrated magazine I got curious if this ten thousand hours rules correct then we should see that elite athletes get a headstart in so-called deliberate practice. This is coached air correction focus practice not just playing around, and in fact, when scientists study lead athletes, they see that they spend more time in deliberate practice not a big surprise. When they actually track athletes over the course of their development, the future leads actually spend less time early on in delivered practice in their eventual sport they to have what scientists call a sampling period where they try a variety of physical activities. They gain broad general skills they learned about their interests and abilities and delays specializing until later than peers who plateau at lower levels. And so when I saw that said, Gosh that doesn't really comport with the ten thousand hours rule does it. So I started to wonder about other domains that we associate with obligatory early specialization like music. Turns out the patterns often similar. Research from a world class, Music Academy, and what I want to draw your attention to is the exceptional musicians didn't start spending more time into practice than the average musicians. Until Third Instrument, they tended to have a sampling period. Even musicians we think of is famously precocious like Yo, Yo Ma he sampling period he just went through it more rapidly than most musicians do. Nonetheless, this research almost entirely ignored and much more impactful is the first page of the Book Battle Hymn of the Tiger mother where the author recounts assigning her daughter Violin. Nobody seems remember the part later in the book where her daughter turns her and says, you picked it not me and largely quits. So having seen this sort of surprising pattern in sports and music. I started to wonder about domains that affect and more people like education and economists found a natural experiment in the Higher Ed Systems of England and Scotland in the period studied, the systems were very similar except in England students had to specialize in their mid teen years to pick a specific course of study to apply tours in Scotland they could keep trying things in university if they wanted to and his question was who wins the trade off the early or the late specializes and he saw that the early specializes jump out to an income. Lead because they have more domain specific skills, the late specializes get to try more different things and when they do pick, they have better fit or what economists call match quality, and so their growth rates are faster by six years out erase that income gap. Meanwhile, the earliest specializes start quitting their career tracks in much higher numbers essentially because they were made to choose. So early that they more often made choices. So the late specializes lose in the short term and win in the long run. I think if we thought about career choice like dating, we might not pressure people to settle down quite so quickly. So this interested seeing this pattern again in exploring a developmental backgrounds of people whose work I had long admired like Duke Ellington who shunned music lessons as a kid to focus on baseball and painting and drawing or Mario Mir's economy who wasn't interested in math is a girl dreamed of becoming a novelist and went on to become the first and so far only woman to win the fields medal the most prestigious prize in the world in Math Vincent Van Gogh had five different careers, each of which he deemed his true calling before flaming out spectacularly, and in his late twenty s picked up a book called the guide to the ABC's of drawing. That worked out. Okay Claude Shannon was an electrical engineer at the University of Michigan who took a philosophy course just to fulfill a requirement and in it, he learned about a near century old system of logic or was true and false statements could be coded as ones and zeroes in solved like math problems. This led to the development of Binary Code, which underlies all of our digital computers today.
Netflix is Hollywood
"Where are we? We are in Los Angeles. We're about to turn onto sunset. Boulevard Hollywood maybe in Hollywood. Okay, so we're. We're approaching. Hollywood hills. Really Tall Palm Trees. So should we explain why we're? We're driving through sunset radio. There's a bunch of billboards here, right? That's what we're. Getting at. Less Ronnie our producers, etc piled, a newborn, took a drive down Hollywood's main drag. It's a traffic jam packed with billboards promoting new TV shows and movies. I've been covering the business of media for a long time, so I served as tour guide for this trip, but Ronnie is a data reporter who mainly writes about tech companies. She doesn't typically pay a lot of attention to what's going on in Hollywood. Here, we have a a the crown net flicks up on the right. Have you watched any of the crown yet? I have not. On the left we have marriage story billboard. This is a Scarlett Johansson. I don't think I want to watch that. You may not be the right person for streaming roddy in a row. We got the Irishman. That's Scorsese's film and then DOLEMITE is my name. Reading that right. Alfie, these are both movies. They're both movies. You can see on Netflix Sega. Any of these this is this is a worthwhile trip for learning. What's on Netflix? You could just actually go to your browser. Are these like already outer. These are like I don't know. Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on. TV, it's a way to watch Hollywood talking to itself, these billboards are messages which are very much directed at Hollywood except now. netflix's doing most of the talking. Stranger things net flix. The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix. Even though that time was just a few years ago. If you didn't know any better, you'd think. Netflix's has always been a huge part of Hollywood. Syphilis can be fatal to your baby free. Check that out not flick show. UNCLEAR UNCLEAR? Welcome the land of the giants. The NETFLIX's effect. I'm Peter Coffee. Today. We're talking about how NETFLIX's.

You're like one of the big one of those big new media disruptors. Why did the entertainment industry need to be disrupted? Just for the fun of it. On this happened really quickly. We talked to Kim Masters veteran show business journalist at the Hollywood reporter who said that a decade ago Netflix's was an afterthought for big media companies newcomers from Silicon Valley or anywhere else did not strike fear in the hearts of moguls. There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel. Let netflix's stream always rate movies from Sony and Disney so stars had created the service called Vong which nobody listening to this podcast is GonNa Remember, but there was a service before Netflix's.

Tens of millions of dollars Netflix's use it as the base to build their streaming service, versus what was historically just a DVD service. And the rest is they say is history.

"Weird neat nick. He different because he sees the problem his profession has and he's figured out a way to do something about it. I asked Randy Frost about what it takes to convince a hoarder to thin their collection. He's psychologist we met in the last episode who studies hoarding. He told me that with orders the first step is talking about the object. So you're seeing in this case, the act of forcing someone to. Conceive and verbalize their talking to the object helps them get rid of yes. Shatters the bond someway or well I, think it puts their attachments. into the context of the values of their life because we focus on values, what is it that you value in your life what you want your life to be like? And once you start talking about this and have these this set of ideas about value and where you WanNa, go and your life together. It changes the the valence of the object. This is what Charles Venable and his curator's were doing in Indianapolis as they work their way through the collection. Changing the valence of the objects they were asking, what is it that we value as a museum? Is this object consistent with those values? Acquiring art costs money. The is a nonprofit with a mandate to serve the people of, Indiana. Venable doesn't see how collecting more and more stuff that the public will never see. To mention spending millions of dollars to warehouse at somewhere is consistent without responsibility. You know you need more conservatives you need more art handlers, you need more registrars, you need bigger computer systems. If you ask Charles Venable to give up a work of art for some broader larger reason, he could do it because he's developed a system for giving things up. So I asked him theoretically. About how he and his curators is might evaluate vase with carnations if it were in their collection. So there's a lot is famous artist as you could find, but it's very much a minor work of that artist is that not is that an ao not in a mean not knowing that particular painting I'm just thinking as a as an abstract question same artists minor work. We wouldn't call that a day. We would get we would give it a little bump because by then go a very famous artist but it wouldn't make an aide just because it had his name on it it would. It would be a minor work by that artist and then the questions we would ask is are we doing? A great artist by Van, Gogh in many ways change the course of a Western art history. Are we doing his legacy and his work. A good deed by showing A. Pretty, minor mediocre work. In a great institution. And particularly institution that has much better works by Van Gogh. You know where you can show an a plus at a place like Detroit why? Why would you bother with a minor thing if we were offered a painting like that we would. If somebody wanted we wouldn't buy it for sure and if somebody wanted to give it to us, we would say, well, this is not something that's right to go on our walls. If you WANNA give it to us or are you willing to let a sell it and then bring bring the money back to the collection by something that your name can go. Charles Venable is adept at changing the valence of the objects in his possession. He can give things up, but he's the exception to rest of the art world is still in the grip of their compulsion..

Trump takes on twitter, social media with executive order
"President signed an executive order stripping big tech of its immunity I'm gonna explain this to you as best that I can and I can explain it I just want to do this is to singly as possible basically boils down to this big media companies like Facebook Twitter I would soon you too Google some of these they have immunity from the lawsuit and you say well how can this be an embarrassing we have it is me well the reason is is because they're supposed be acting as a platform but if you act as a publisher like a newspaper or a radio station near talk show or television whatever if you do Vance then you're not immune from lawsuits because what you're doing now is actively participating the content and you're responsible for the content when you do that so if your platform and you say okay we have a platform and anybody can go in post whatever they want to we can't possibly police all of this stuff well that's what Congress said years ago we're going to carve out an exemption for you because you can't possibly police all the stuff we want a free flow of ideas and we're not gonna have a free flow of ideas if a platform turns into a publisher in other words of a platform is an editor of content there we're not gonna have a free flow of ideas so it was initially intended to protect you and have your freedom of speech protected but what it's turned into is been a shield for these big companies like Twitter and Facebook to be able to do exactly what they want supposed to do which is edit your content and get away with it so the president just stripped him of that today and it's sort of complicated because it sort of goes to the FCC but it's got the justice department element in there too and this is about civil lawsuits so let's just say I put up something about Johnny beat today and I say the Johnny B. as a whatever I mean I mean the same thing goes into the van Gogh listed was that you're trying to be was I did that one time a boy just coming in reverberated around of people came back you said so I said I that was used as examples of Joe so I'm I'm whatever I say about Johnny bean ends up not being true now if I put that on Twitter leading sue not only me being sued Twitter for allowing it up there because they have crossed the line from being a platform to being an editor slash publisher that was their own choice to make and what cross the line for trump is when they started doing to him another man during the rest of us were and that's why I said you know this guy gets hacked off now with that being the him we should have done this a long time ago but he's done it and I'm sure it's going to be challenged in the courts but I don't see how Facebook or Twitter or E. or you to renew the I don't I don't see how they win I also believe it goes this record another win on you know they get the ninth circuit court of appeals or some you know some of these folks is that these courts are packed with liberals who knows what they'll get from them but if you if you talk about common sense is pretty straight forward the law says that if your platform that you have immunity from from lawsuits but if you're not a platform if you become a publisher or an editor and I think by anybody's definition when you flag something and say this isn't true as they did with trump on Twitter you're becoming an editor I mean that's the clearest definition of it you're in a court of law and say well what do you think this is and they'll go well I. D. we just it was a flag no it's in you made an edit on this platform when you delete somebody and say you can't you can't tweet that that said that it when you when you go on Facebook and you say and I try to put a move which have not us we posted that the video from epic times about the Wuhan lab you know this is early on in this thing and they said you before you click on the thing this is been proven to be not true of course now it's proven to be true but at the time they were telling us it wasn't true and you sure you want to watch this video is the way it was set up and then you go to click it well that's editing that's editing when they inject themselves into the process if they put themselves in between the poster and the user then they are an editor that's a textbook definition they are becoming an editor and so they go to any court and I even the liberal courts are going to say you of course you're an editor and if you're an editor you no longer immune that's what the statute says that's what the law says if you become an editor or publisher you're not immune from lawsuits so you can be now wide open being sued which is going to happen people have been trying to sue Facebook and Twitter for years over content and they've been protected within no longer protected and it's of their own design and it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of folks I'm just telling you so what happens from here that I don't know I don't know what what is going to happen from here but it could very well be that Twitter and Facebook shape up and they say okay all right let's say all right if we if we if we don't do this anymore where you give us back our immunity and I'm sure trump will say yes I would that's all he wants is you to stop **** with people stop injecting your political a bias by the way let me play because I play this early but this I mean knowing what you know right knowing what Facebook does knowing that they have I mean they have a long history of doing this this is what Zuckerberg I'm here again just the case of the epoch times video that I put up there and that other people but of the year and then they they graded out and said are you sure you want to watch is because and you need to click here because this is not true of course it ends up not being true but they were telling us it wasn't true that's them editorializing right that being arbiters of truth here's what mark Zuckerberg said on CNBC I don't think that Facebook or or internet platforms in general should be arbiters of truth I think that's a kind of a dangerous line to get down to in terms of deciding what is what what is true and what isn't well you've already done it you are the arbiters of truth just because we don't want to be determining what is true and false it doesn't mean that that politicians or anyone else can just say whatever they want I want to listen to that one again that means listen to what he says just because we don't want to be determining what is true and false it doesn't mean that that politicians or anyone else can just say whatever they want just because we're going to be arbiters of this doesn't mean the politics you can say whatever they want of course they can say whatever they want it's called free speech what are you talking about of course they see they don't the they've got some gray area and the gray area is not on social media the gray area in their head is on constitution what is allowed and what is not they think that they don't understand the freedom of speech so when they say the arbiters of truth it's their truth so they're saying what are the arbiters of truth I mean this is a known true like global warming for one thing of course we got to get rid of these deniers because that's a lie and we can't allow lies on our platform that's where they this this is how they justified in their mind they think okay well we can't we can't allow false information I mean you're not so you're certainly not saying that we can all fall out false information and so we got to get rid of wrinkles while false information to them as anything they disagree with that's what they've got in their heads they don't understand that I have a right to my opinion about global warming and they can say well this is untrue or whatever but I can say it's true all day long we can argue about it but they think that if they think I'm wrong that that I'm wrong and therefore they have a right not to let me be heard they have a fundamental misunderstanding of the first amendment they don't understand what it means at all it doesn't mean that it doesn't mean you get this you get to shout me down or quiet me if what you hear me saying you don't think is true it doesn't matter what you think I have the right to be heard now that's on a platform I have a right to be heard if you have a news thing or you have an editorial policy whatever then you're an editorial of the entity you're no longer platform but if your platform then everybody should be able to voice their own opinion and you should not have anything to say about it all you're doing is allowing them eight platform I mean that's what that means our platform is a place where people can go and voice their opinions and so if your platform use leave all that alone that's what it was intended to be and as we said over the last few years what the social media folks have turned into its arbiters of truth exactly what Zuckerberg said that they want but that's exactly what they are but the truth is in their own hands and so they can see that's the thing and I will tell you this about anything I don't have any problem with somebody going on Twitter in saying the earth is flat I think it's a line and I can probably demonstrated but what's the harm of having somebody go on and say the earth is flat and have people debate them about it well there's no harm whatsoever but you put something up about this plan that make thing out there and say that something quite right in that the the other thing may have come from a lab in Wuhan and blah blah blah and they go out of their way they got to shut it down it makes you wonder what

Make it possible to bring these paintings into every single room in your home that you can see the works right up close in person so this first of all the name of the APP is the name of the APP is art museum. Ar T. Museum and it's available on Ios Ios and android right now it's available on Ios. But we do have plans to make it available for android devices as well. Okay so now.

It's here in times like this and we encourage people to you know support these organizations take a look at the art and Um and hopefully it gives them a little bit of relaxation and inspiration Is the APP free? Of course we would never charge for something like that. Were very strongly believed that art should be accessible on. There shouldn't be an economic or financial barrier to this and we've also made this component free and available to the museum community so we're been rolling it out and in talks with dozens of organizations around the country around the world about how things like. This can help them play some sort of role in connecting people beyond you know social media beyond a two dimensional image beyond a livestream remind everybody the name of the APP so the name of the APP is art museum. A are as an augmented reality. T. Museum and I'm Brendan from Kuzan

And also the influence of pointless where I was just like instead of mixing the two colors. He would just place them next to each other. So that from a distance you could really get the tones across. So the again the influence of syntax pointillism release shows in his most famous portrait of eighteen eighty nine plus these worlds and swirls that make up the background of the peace and he wanted to paint reality in fantastical way. So although he died in poverty in relative anonymity. His most and his most vocal supporter died soon after him van Goghs fame reached its first peak in Austria, Germany before World War One helped by the publication of his letters in three volumes in nineteen fourteen. His Theo's widow Johann us his sister-in-law. Published their letters in nineteen eleven through nine fourteen. And what's weird is she was like in her twenties and she had just married. She had not only just recently met Van Gogh, but she had just recently met THEO like man, they had just got married. A couple months beforehand. She was pregnant like. So she didn't really know these people, and then she has all of a sudden, she inherited all the stuff two thousand paintings, and she could have just sat on it or sold at all or whatever. But she did her her former husband good and like really understood in a short amount of time. How important this relationship was to him and how important Van Gogh's work was to him. And why she wanted to put it out in the world. Instead of just kind of like, whatever that's not my responsibility more, and it's her efforts. Her efforts are y we know Van Gogh is Van Gogh today loud because otherwise he would have just slipped off into nothing and his work would have been destroyed or kind of distributed around known would know who he was or few would no I should say. So his letters are expressive literate and have been described as among the foremost nineteenth century writings of their kind. These begin a compelling mythology Van Gogh is an intense and dedicated painter who suffered for his art and died young in nineteen thirty four the novelist. Irving. Stone wrote a biographical novel of Van Gogh's life, titled lust for life based on ga- Van Gogh's letters, THEO and this novel in the nineteen fifty six film further enhanced his fame, especially United States where stone surmised only a few hundred people had heard of in go prior to surprise bestselling book. So van Goghs nephew namesake. Vincent Willem Van Gogh who died in nineteen seventy eight inherited the estate after his mother's death in nineteen twenty five and during their early nineteen fifties he arranged for the publication of a complete edition of the letters presented in four volumes and several languages out. He then began negotiations with the Dutch government to subsidize foundation to purchase and house the entire collection. That's good archive work. So THEO son participated in planning the project in the hope that the works would be exhibited under the best possible conditions and the Van Gogh museum open the museum plein in Amsterdam and nineteen seventy three it became the second. Most popular museum in the Netherlands after the wrecks museum. Regularly receiving more than one point five million visitors a year.

There are almost there are no oil paintings of his brother, THEO or anybody that was like especially close to him. He painted gone. Yeah.

We can only speculate we can only speculate, but they think that he had bipolar disorder was like an early one. Some people say that he had like like porphyria, which is and a lot of other people were like, no not. They think it's just he had severe depression and anxiety and probably had some like bipolar tendencies in that kind of thing. So it's just very sad. Yeah..
