"Welcome to your very own radio show. How are you feeling? Well, are you mark doing well and you know, today we're going to be talking about some do's and don'ts of retirement planning and, you know, typically making plans could be a simple is calling a friend to hit the course for a round of golf, which I might do. Brooklyn might be calling somebody to enjoy a night out. It doesn't require much effort beyond agreeing on the time in the place, but with retirement, there's a much more complicated Web to untangle. What to do what not to do. So we're going to talk about the do's and don'ts of retirement planning, and it certainly could be a lot. So Brooklyn I guess. Let's start with this. What are some of the things that pre retirees Should do before they decide to start planning to retire well again. This is like you're going into a different stage of life. And for some people that stage that preparation starts when they're in their red forties, and for others. It's like the day before they put in their notice that they're ready to retire. So again. It's really just a organisation and planning process. You know, I think it's interesting. I get a lot of feedback from people that come in here for the very first time to meet with me and Whether or not they work with us still say, you know, look, I was actually very thankful. I raised my hand and us for some assistance because it forced me to get stuff in order, you know, and be able to kind of taken inventory of what was going line and start looking at where their money is. You know, we get into this pattern and comfortable ity and living life and When you do that, sometimes you lose control. Are you don't focus or put us much energy into things that you could be wherein you could have more money. So I think the beginning process which is something that we assist clients with is just getting organized and realizing where buckets of money are, you know, Mark. We've talked about this on the show. Not many people are like our grandparent's, where they went straight from, you know, high school college or the military into a company and stayed there their whole life right? The trend has turned into a kind of hopping from company to company, right, Wrong or indifferent. That's just more of the trend as people try and work through their career ladder, so that means that you've got a 401 K at this company in a foreman could be in for a one K at that, cos you've got all these scattered out. Nothing's really working together. So by taking this first step of getting organized a lot of times that allows for you to reduce your fee because you're consolidating accounts. It allows you to look at options that are not necessarily always market based because in a self directed IRA or AH brokerage account, you have options that are available to you that you wouldn't necessarily have in an employer sponsored plan. So all of those things in the long run could really put money back into your pocket. So you think about the planning process, the TF, a financial freedom, road map, income planning, investment strategies, tax efficient strategies, health, long term care planning, legacy estate planning. All of that is a part of it. How do you help your client set attainable goals for retirement. You know the movie with Who was it? Walter Matthau and Jack Nicholson. I think the bucket list movie. Remember that on DH? What's that came out everybody's gonna go. That's kind of what they do for retirement had got a bucket list. I'm going to do this, but we do have to have the income to be able to do it. So how do you help clients maybe set attainable goals for their retirement. Right. So income is key. Whether you've saved a $1,000,000.5 million dollars or $100,000 income is what allows you to have financial freedom. Right? So while you work, your paycheck that comes in allows you to pay your bills, you know, accumulate assets. But then eventually when the paycheck stops, and you now are voluntarily unemployed, you've gotta use your investments for income. So in comes the first thing we look at whether you come in here in your 40 or your 65. We're looking from an income aspect. So someone that's 40 that comes in here. I'm doing more of Ah, reverse engineer like we need to Do this much each year so we can get to this point. So that you know, at 60 60 to 63. Whatever it is, this will pay you so much versus someone that has stopped accumulating. They've They've saved everything They're going to save and they're ready to retire. And they've saved you know a $1,000,000 or something. That 750,000 That's it, And now we gotta look at if they have pension options or what they're so security strategy is going to be. Do they have any sort of like rental income coming in maybe future inheritances or something to that effect, So all those things that we're putting into place so we can determine what their incomes going to be? You know, Mark, really. There's been a trend and this is just I mean, what a weird year we've had so far. But here in San Antonio, we have a lot of people that live here that work for Southwest Airlines and Southwest Airlines going through some changes, and they've made some offerings to their employees. And so we've seen several. You know, people reach out to us that hadn't necessary decided they wanted to retire this year. Had a lady in the office last week and You know, she had hoped to work at least through the next year that Southwest Airlines 50th anniversary. But again, there's changes. But in those changes, there's opportunities. And so it's about taking the right steps and making the right decisions. So with her, we're looking at what she say so far to give her an idea of what that would give her for income. When to start taking Social Security. Maybe she works, Ah side job or a side hustle. I like to call it. But again, it's about income that is first and foremost when we when we, you know, put together the financial freedom Road map for our clients. Even working now for you know, 3 to 4 decades and you're starting to consider retirement. But Not so fast. You have to consider many factors in retirement. We need to calculate your costs in your expenses and really prepare you for that retirement mindset. There is a mental shift that needs to take place and it's not that you're going to be sitting on the reclining the recliner all day. Here's the thing. It can be a quiet It could be quite a stark contrast to abruptly enter into retirement. So let my team here a Texas finance advisory help you transition into retirement when you give us a call in a 44832 74 69 That's a four for T F a show..

As former podcast Dez, Ron Liebman. Joni ravage bog Kangari Keith Carradine won't be Goldberg and Peter Bogdanovich, please welcome to the show an actor's actor one of the hardest working people in show business. I'm men who says he still great turning down the role of radar O'Reilly in Robin Oltman smash the legendary Austin Pendleton. Thank you. I'm exhausted. But. Most people are I hadn't realized how tired I was. Welcome. Thanks for coming out in the cold now worst. And we had already started talking about this before the mikes were on. So let's go right there right there. Now. I mean, I one time I guess if someone had said to anybody, it's a new auto premature film comedy, starring Groucho Marx and Jackie Gleason, how could that fail? Oh, even by that point. I understood in the business house things could fail. Your first film, even before do you? See, you never know. Just don't ever know. So what was it like 'cause that that had so many? Well, the thing about scan do the first thing I want to say about I fail. Tell you very briefly. How I got it. A man named Bill cannon wrote the script for it. He had I written the script for a film called Brewster McCloud. He wanted me to play to play Brewster McCloud. But I only had cedar credits at that time. So people just said, no, he's has never been in a movie. How are we going to finance a little indie movie he wanted to make directing self called Brewster McCloud? So he wrote skedaddle, which is a charming script. And he wrote a supporting part for me in that just so that I would have a film credit, and it was picked up by auto premature. And so we made schedule and so and. Certainly the best thing about schedule for me was getting to know auto premature because he taught me just about everything I know about film acting, and I liked him a great deal and a few years ago at the film forum, you know, here in New York of they they had an auto premature thing like a retrospect went on for weeks, and I was kind of free then. And so I went to just about all of them, including all the well known ones, which already seen an a lot of little movies. He made in the late forties early fifties. And he was a brilliant film director ska do. As we were making. It was evidently a catastrophe just kind of new onset everyone knew including auto. And, but you know, one one plows ahead. Sure. And. Educate mate. And it it was a relatively pleasant set that there's a kind of a sweetness that comes over the set of a movie went everybody knows it's not working. And then it came out few months later in and with premier was in Miami. As a fundraiser for the Miami art center that was going to be built during the premiere while it was going on half the audience left. And and and we met up at the party and people pretended. They had seen the whole movie, and you want to say, no, I saw you walk. We were you know. And nothing could be said an auto was a model of four to two in humor doing all this. I mean, it was like he he was famous for his his temper, and there wasn't that much of it on skew..

"If you look at like principles of like, lots of different things that are have helped a lot of people whether their religion or programs or things like that. Right. It's basically get out of self to other. People sounds nice anytime. You know, yourself even beating yourself up is so selfish because it's about you, even if you're being really unkind to yourself it selfish act because it's just about you. Yeah. Before we move on. Can we talk about Elaine may? Oh, yeah. As I haven't even gotten to ask you as a friend. Yeah. We haven't had a all this shit. No you've been so busy. But I wanna know what is that been like Elaine may as the star Michael's play one of the stars of Michael's play. And she was Mike Nicholls his comedy partner, and they did their show at the golden theatre, which is where we're doing the show. Wow. Crazy. I mean, obviously must say cool shit about that. What did she? I mean, she's just like it was just the two of us. We didn't even need all this space because there's like twelve dressing rooms, we just we're just on this first floor. So what are what has been some of the most interesting topics? That you've got into third. You know, the sad thing is where things you've learned. Well since we've gotten out of rehearsals. Yeah. And we're just performing the show. I kinda hardly see her. We have to like construct situations where we overlap right because now you just calling into the shooter. Yeah. And I see you're on stage. Sometimes we'll hang back after the show and like she likes stout. So I bring her stout the Bahir. Yeah, there's yeah. She loves it. Because this really good stout called Mexican cake, which is like it's got chocolate and cinnamon, and like how Nero pepper, and and it's really thick like tar ends. I bring our keg of that gig of that. I get a real loose. And then we and then you get her drunk, and then she'll tell you everything. So you literally just kick back and have a beer with Elaine may sometimes sometimes. Yeah. Like, you'll never forget that the rest. I mean, those are the best. Yeah. Those are the best is one of my top. She's my top heroes of all time is Elaine may. Yeah. Oh, yes. She's the gr-. Well, you have to great overlap with her. She's also one of the first huge female directors like at a very early time. Yeah. You know? I know that's the most incredible really pioneer like restore down the studios like with Mikey and NICKY and a new leaf was her first movie with Walter Matthau. Right. And it has one of my favorite sequences of all time in it. The movies about Walter mouth as a rich guy loses all of his money, and then dates lane may who's like a wacky weirdo in hasn't haired. Yeah. Wealthy New York person. But she's like really wacky. Yeah. Like, you wouldn't want to date her is right here. Right. But Walter Matthau loses all of his money. He's too shallow guys obsessive being rich. And there's a sequence it's one of the funniest sequences in a movie ever. Oh, and he's talking to his account. No where he says goodbye to being rich. Sadly, does all the things he does is a rich person..
Why Are Some Words Funny?
"In the nineteen seventy-five movie, the sunshine boys, an aging vaudeville, comedian explains a classic truism of comedy to his nephew the case. Sound is always funny. The comedian played by Walter Matthau said fifty seven years in this business. You learn a few things, you know, what words are funny. And which words are not funny. Alka seltzer is funny. You say alka seltzer. You get a laugh, Casey Stengel. That's a funny name. Robert Taylor is not funny. Cupcake is funny tomato is not funny. Cleveland is funny. Maryland is not funny. Then there's chicken chicken is funny. Pickle is funny. And it's true. If you need a place name for a punchline, you're guaranteed to kill with Kalamazoo, connected key or Rancho Cucamonga, but why psychology professor Chris Westbury at the university of Berta has a fascinating theory. And it's based on perhaps the two unfunny est words in the English language statistical, probability Westbury. Published a paper in October of two thousand eighteen in the journal of experimental psychology with a first rate title, Wrigley, squeaky, Lennox and boobs. What makes some words funny in his research? He started with the list of the five thousand English words rated funniest by real humans and constructed a working with medical model for predicting the laugh factor of nearly every word in the dictionary. When Westbury applied his model to a data set of forty five thousand five hundred and sixteen English words, it decided that these ten words were the funniest of all up Chuck bubbly Baath wriggly. Yes, giggle. Kuch Cafa puffball and gigli runners-up included squeaky flappy and bucco and the perennial favorites of every eight year old on the planet poop, puke and boobs on the other end of the spectrum the word found to be the absolute least funny was harassment. In his paper Westbury explains that philosophers have been trying to unravel the mystery of humor for millennia Plato and Aristotle we're big fans of humor seeing it mostly as a way of denigrating and feeling superior to others Casero introduced incongruity theory, a writing that the most common kind of joke is when we expect one thing and another is said in which case our own disappointed. Expectation makes us laugh while the incongruity theory of comedy makes perfect sense of even rainy tins. Find switcheroo tricks high. Larry's Westbury says that it's not a true scientific theory in the clearly not every incongruence event is as funny as another a random coughing fit in a crowded movie theater isn't nearly as comical as a random farting fit. I mean, just try to say random farting fit without smiling. So the goal of Westbury's modeling experiments was to go beyond philosophical theorising and come up with a truly quantifiable scale of funny to do it. Westbury analyst words. In two different ways by their meaning and by their form for the first analysis. The researchers looked at semantic predictors. That group words with similar meanings. Using a free tool developed by Google that identifies words that are commonly used for one another aka co occurrence Westbury mapped out the semantic relationships between two hundred and thirty four of the human picked funniest words from this correlation plot, the researchers identified six different clusters or categories of funny words, insult sex party animal bodily function and expletive. Now. This is where things get dangerously mathematical since many of the words on the human rated funny list fell into more than one category. Other researchers needed a more precise measurement of how a words being translated into comedy using the Google tool. They came up with lists of words most closely related to each of the six categories, then they came up with the average values for each of those word categories. Using something called linear regression analysis. Those average values for each category. You know, insult expedited cetera became known as category defining vectors. When looking specifically at meaning it turns out that the funniest words don't necessarily fall cleanly into the most categories, but are the words whose mathematical values are the closest on average to those six category defining vectors. Here's how Westbury summed it up in a press. Brief the average similarity of a words meaning to these six categories is itself, the best measure, we found of a words funniness, especially at the word also has strongly positive emotional connotations. But meaning is only one type of measurement Westbury and his team looked at the form of funny words, a things like word length or the individual sounds or phonemes that make up each word in the second analysis the data fit nicely with the incongruity theory of humor. It turns out that the fewer times a word or its phonemes appear in the language. The funnier we think they are that helps explain why there are so many K and use ounds in funny word lists. There's typically improbable where it's ending in L E. Like Waddell in wriggle or another source of funds suggesting as the study, put it repetition usually with diminutive aspect. So why are we laughing? Now, this is where things get really weird the human brain seems as running all of these complex mathematical models all the time without any of us knowing it as we watch TV and read and talk to people our brains are constantly parsing language for subtle semantic, cross-connections and statistical probabilities and the result, at least on this basic one word level is what we call humor Westbury said if asked which letter is more common p or be I think the average person would have no clue consciously, but unconsciously they are sensitive to that. And we know that because they're funding this judgments are reflecting. Exactly that kind of fine tuned calculation. In other words, said Westbury people are using emotions to do math. Westbury argues that all of this makes perfect sense. Abolution airily our brains had been hardwired over millions of years to identify anything that's out of the ordinary as a potential threat and human emotions, including humor likely developed as ways of responding to improbable events and environments Westbury summed it up people laugh based on how improbable the world is. Of course, it's a long conceptual leap from predicting the funniness level of individual words to modeling the comedic mechanics of knock knock joker salty Limerick. But whispers, work points the way, maybe someday we'll finally understand why that chicken crossed the road. One thing's clear, though, a frog wouldn't have been half as

Yeardley Smith talks to Matt Gourley about the Simpsons
"A little bit now i can only imagine you've been asked a lot of these questions a million times so you have every right to pass or deflect it to something rather talk about but i always try to pride myself in finding questions that are different in some way but i don't know about this line it is a tough one just all been ass i can imagine and how many years is it now it's just started recording season thirty good lower no years we literally have writers who grew up watching the show who thought might dream job will be to ride on the simpsons but they won't still be on by the time i'm old enough and like oh yes do you have any that were born after it debuted yeah i believe so yes i mean there are people in that room who work on the show who have no recollection of a world without simpson that's extrordinary zand i mean thirty years thirty two relief you count the tracey ullman show that's old enough to have been born when the simpsons started or even slightly after a now to have your own children who are walking and talking and watching the simpsons that's that's bananas it is an institution like saturday night live where a long involved would have been raised on it completely absolutely yeah god so you if this is true additionally originally read for the role of bart that's true and nancy cartwright read for lisa is that right yes interesting i think it was never well two things happened so i did a play here in los angeles at the fountain theatre called living on salvation street that was directed by dorothy lyman who used to be on mama's family do you remember mama in fact i see that this kiki she was a juvenile delinquent i did i three episodes and because of doing that tv show when this play came around dorothy lyman cast me as the lead and i played this girl named wilma who wanted to join the army and saying l was presley songs so nothing likely simpson and about i would say like seventeen people saw that play and one of those people are year later was casting the simpsons and she says that she when the role of lisa simpson came up she said i know exactly who should play lisa simpson and it was me it wasn't nancy so the fact that i did read for bart and nancy read for lisa i think it was more of a well let's they always have women do the voices of young boys because their voices don't change obviously right so i don't think it was so specific as we're just gonna throw a lot of spaghetti at the wall and whoever is better for one and then for another and then of course i'm sure they had editions with tons of other people that's who we will cast but i did read for bar but i don't even think it lasted a whole scene interesting yeah 'cause i just sound so much like a girl always and over the years do you struggle to keep it fresh for yourself do you find that the voice of all because i look back at the tracey ullman versions in the early seasons especially with homer i mean it's it's started with oh yeah okay a lot of people think actually that whoever did home or on the tracey ullman show it was then a different actor who did it when we went to half hour but it's the same as dan castellaneta and dan orig when we drew in the bumpers as we call them on the tracey ullman show agree told the whole story in one minute right three twenty seconds segments something to that effect before the commercial break and dan fashioned homers voice after walter matthau and when we went to half hour he couldn't sustain it technically like vocally he couldn't sustain it so he had to alter it and that's why homer sounds so different yeah and i think when i first started doing lisa simpson i really didn't do anything i mean i sound a sound i i think probably now about now i probably like him about fourteen but back then i think i probably started let goes eleven
