The Future Geopolitical Order and Bitcoin, Part 2 by Matthew Pines
"Let's go ahead and get into today's read. And this is part two of the future geopolitical order and Bitcoin. And initial assessment. And we are starting in on this section titled. Scenario analysis. What goes on inside is just too fast and huge in all interconnected for words to do more than barely sketch the outlines of it most one tiny little part of it at any given instant. David Foster Wallace every scenario in the arago of Pentagon wargaming starts with assumptions and artificialities, and then presents a ground truth. The former fix the parameters of the notional future, and the latter unpack the salient context and detail to examine the issue under analysis. Our assumptions and artificialities defined over the time horizon of interest. 2022 to 2030. One. Putin does not use nuclear weapons or mass use of chemical weapons beyond irritants in Ukraine. Two. Putin does not get deposed or assassinated. Though he may die of suspected disease, we assume his replacement is another style of Vicki, and won't fundamentally liberalize Russian society or change foreign policy. Three. China does not launch an unprovoked full scale invasion of Taiwan. This doesn't preclude actions against offshore islands like dong Ying, pratas, or other provocative moves in the South China Sea. Four. The Chinese Communist Party remains in power. Most likely with Xi at the helm, but this is not assumed. 5. No new breakthrough technologies or scientific discoveries are made that change the fundamental productivity or energy capacity of society, or destabilize human social order. For example, UAP disclosure. 6. No existing nuclear powers collapse or engage in nuclear hostilities. For example, Pakistan or North Korea, and new nuclear powers, examples of Saudi Arabia and Iran do not engage in nuclear conflict. 7. No debilitating attacks on global Internet infrastructure are launched. This includes cyberattacks, cable cuts to undersea fiber links, destructive anti satellite attacks, et cetera 8. No new COVID variant or other pandemic brings civilization back into a 2020 state of lockdown or worse. 9. The global food fertilizer system does not collapse and lead to multi continent famine, killing more than 5 to 10% of world population. Destabilizing social order throughout the world, including the west. And tin. The United States or Europe for that matter does not experience a political crisis that leads to a breakdown in constitutional order, a fundamental change in the federal structure of government or a secessionist breakaway block of states.

"It is about the middle, you know? It's not about the extremes. It's not about the elite or the revolutionaries or whatever the extremes. You know, it's not about that. It's about the majority. That is actually where the power is. And suddenly, many people feel disempowered, because they don't know what to do. And you know what? This is the joke of it. It's just a simple thing. It's just every day habitual, simple things. I feel shit today. I'm going to own it. What am I going to do about it? Okay, I'll really have a drink. Oh, you know what? I will start to see anyone today. I'm going to turn my phone off. It's just things like that. It's called self love. It's called self care. And again, it's not about the extremes as much anymore. It's about the little things believe it or not. So again, you think about it. I don't know why I keep going on about The Lord of the Rings. Maybe it's because it feels like the end times or whatever. But it's the hobbits that were the powerful ones in that whole play. It wasn't the king or it wasn't the Gandalf, you know, it wasn't the ones who were powerful. It was actually, they could make. It was the meek. It was the everyday individual. You know, who were actually the powerful ones, because they weren't corrupted. They weren't aware of the huge pitfalls and powers that existed in the world. They had that innocence, you know, the childlike innocence. They had the connection to the earth. It was the felt the earth. So there is a lot more of us who are like that, you know? But what happens is that in this time of the Internet, in this time of technology, it becomes about transparency. So there is more of us who are actually innocent and make and humble. Then there are these extremes. So that's why it's like The Wizard of Oz, you know, they know, or whoever's controlling who's being maligned in the world right now and it's not many, very few. Very few. And just like, you know, the people who are malign is equally people who are good, fighting the good fight, right at the top. It's not all bad. It's never all bad. It's always both. It's always Ying and Yang. But what's required is sovereignty. So if sovereignty means, right, I'm just going to, I'm going to stop eating meat for one day a week, you know? Whatever it is, or I'm not going to drink for a week. You know, whatever it may be, that is powerful, but the robe or the trick. If you want to call it, by the devil, whatever, is to make us believe that's not the case. So as soon as people start owning their sovereignty, only what they come owning what they can not do is get away. Then guess what? The whole world changes. And they don't believe people don't believe it. They don't believe in power they don't believe the making a difference, but they are.

"Very small parochial version. Governed not just by the rules and potentials of the board, but by our own assumptions, habits, practices, cultural and I actually kind of love that about us. In other words, that we've colonized that humanized and brought all of our kind of heart rending limitations, even to something like a board game. That's very moving to me. The computer has the chilly and personal version of go. And this reminds us, we're not playing the Chilean personal version. Our go bears the imprint of our own limitations and cultural specificities. And I find that really endearing. Great. But it's funny, we both see the same thing and are moved by it. I don't think what I'm saying about you saying are incompatible. I think they're actually compelling. No, no, no. I think they're almost opposites and the fact that they are both something to fall in love with about the story is amazing. I love that. Yeah. But this is actually something that you, what I've just described is something you do a lot in this book, which is there are a lot of moments where it appears that you're making points that contradict each other, but you're not. This is the furthest from black and white. This book, there is a lot of this kind of Ying Ying and Yang unit. I thought was really very, very you. It's not like you do it this way, not this way.

"And listen, every Ying has its Yang. We've talked about the pros and there's so many. We didn't even go over some of the awesome ones that are just still there, but we do have a time restraint here. What are the cons of niching? The biggest con, we've talked about it before, is you do reduce your Tam. You do have a smaller market to sell to. So we have to be very aware of that. It is a true con in some cases. There are others that I think are more relevant. For example, that could be more relevant, diversity. If you're a very creative person and you don't like doing repeatable actions, this may not be a path for you, because there is a path towards productization and it is a path towards repeating actions over and over again. Another is industry risk, for example, if you chose an industry that could run into problems, you know, just recently we had COVID and the cruise line industry was heavily affected. If you're in that industry alone, it could be very devastating to you. The one that I think is not talked about enough and Alex her mosey talked about this alluded to this in his book, $100 million offers. It's a fantastic book. It's an increase in effort and sacrifice when you niche. It's when you only do one thing, it can make it more effort on your customer to get the things that they want. For example, if an agency only does SEO and doesn't do PPC, they may have to go with two agencies, or there's a reason why Walmart sells groceries now. And not just goods and home goods and things of that nature because it makes it easier. It's more convenient. So I think one of the biggest cons the niching, is there is an increase in effort and sacrifice on the consumer in many cases. I mean, listen, those are cons, but at the same time, it's kind of like being on a job interview and saying, what's your biggest weakness in the person saying, I just work too hard. I'm just such a hard worker and you're like, really? Is that really a weakness? At the same time, they are semi cons in some ways. It's really just more proof of the power of niching up. And I want to

"I mean, this sounds like a game in which you're an alcoholic trying to stroke other people's lovely dogs. In which case I have several friends who will be suing on copyright based. But the thing that's kind of great about it is that so all the dogs have their very specific needs. Well, they don't initially. Initially, you can just go and rub any dog. It's a free for all. That every time a dog gets touched, it becomes increasingly grumpy. And then you have to bring them like a treat or you have to bring them away from other people to give them rub, which is very sinister. Opening a dog into its own little room just for your anyway. I think I want to report this game to the RSPCA. But my favorite thing is that so the dogs have a little tokens on them, which show you the requirements, but you look at them privately. So there's a great thing because there's four people. Up to 8 people around the table. And then the cafe gets bigger at which point you're playing it in some kind of like massive sprawling that the spoons. What a large Canadian chain bar. Brew house. Okay. That's a good name. Yeah. But yeah, like if you play with 8 players, the place is a sports hall full of dogs that you're all sprinting after. But I love that it's also kind of a negotiation game because you find out what that dog needs. And then someone will be like, I want to put that dog, can you tell me how annoyed it is? Could you get me some treats? Yeah, that's a wonderful little weird thing that we've got to play. It definitely could have been re themed. He almost felt more to me like a kind of CIA versus KGB spy versus spy 1960s because you're walking around like clinking drinks. There's a mechanic at the end of every round. You can pick a player to be like, we're both going to lose two sips, which is basically you go to them in the bar and you're like, hey, what are you doing? And you both have to stand there drinking for some indeterminate number of minutes. And you're so you're like, you're not going to touch any of these dogs. I'm going to keep talking to you about the weather or whatever for minutes and then what are you doing? What do you think of this one? Do we there? I wasn't there. Great. What do you think of this? Because there were a bunch of people who have mentioned it to me and I kept thinking, I should play that. I really should play that. And then I just sort of, I think I just wanted to see dogs. So I literally went outside the convention center. And that was like a husky right there. And I just had a nice time. Wow. More board game reviews like that. I'll tell you what, let me do a slightly better job as moderator and cube hip hop with a game she's actually played. Do you want to talk about the oldest game on this podcast, a game you were given by friend of the show, Jonathan Ying, Dutch blitz from 1960. Yeah, it was so we got to chatting after the show on Friday, I think. I was face first in a bowl of poutine at the time. And why did I confess to that? No one needed to know that. Anyway, and so Jonathan was just very excitedly telling me all about this competitive solitaire thing that was happening. And I've been playing quite a lot on my phone of a weaponized solitaire. And I was like, this is brilliant. This is great.

But maybe it's because a product in this particular environment may be sadness is a human, useful human invention, but not a universal one. This is what I don't know, because this is where I come back to the, as I told you, like the original reason that I wrote my whole book was the feeling that somehow in the expression of sad music is what other people see when they talk about God.

Messed up. So what are some things that didn't work? Because I think there's a little bit of blood in the water and people want to be like, you can't tell me that this is a genius movie through and through. Anything jump out to you rob that you just didn't really click with aside from some of the action and some of the muddiness that I'm decided? Well, I thought the balance was a little off, and it comes to me from not having Lawrence fishburne in this movie. Because when you do this kind of again, morpheus cosplay, which was hilarious in its own right, like yada yada Ying, the morpheus speeches that that was really funny. But you lose the secret weapon of the original movie, which is Lawrence fisherman's ability to give exposition dumps and make them the best scenes in the movie. Like the dojo scene and the chairs, the pills. Those should not be good scenes. You know, it's in a storytelling sense, and yet they're the highlights. They're exactly what you remember. And so not having his gravitas, you know, you get incredible dignity and strength from Carrie Anne moss and you get this like zen and curiosity from neo's character, but like you're missing you're missing some of that authority from the way that Lawrence fishburne played morpheus. At least I was missing it. Yeah, I completely agree with you. I mean, anything for you that you just were like, I can't get into this at all. Yeah, at some point, we're just battling some weird robots.

Because correct me if I'm wrong, but you have nonprofits that you built is that correct? Yes. So yeah, which is like massive. Yeah. So nonprofit in good work in so many different ways. It's the one I have today, but I remember the first thing the first thing I ever worked for was in high school where I volunteered for all girls orphanage and just helped tutor them after school. That's philanthropy. That's sharing knowledge. It's always been in my life today I have two hope, which I started. I support Casa girl zinc. It always seems to be things around, I would say children, women. The biggest thing about it is, of course, we do philanthropy for the philanthropy sake. Whatever it affects it, I always learn a lot. You're around. Typically other people that can also have that mindset. So I think it's very healthy, typically. As you succeed, philanthropy keeps you straight on humility on where you came from, where this all, you know, sort of started. And the last thing on philanthropy, I think is I believe and I don't know whatever you want to call it. Ying and Yang, energy, what you give, you know, comes back. It's always been there for me. So if I do these things with humility, don't ask for credit, don't ask for a pat on the back. Simply do it, I've actually tried to practice the exercise of where I do it. I do some sort of philanthropy or good for somebody.

And I think in this case, certainly in the past, we have said, do your homework, you want to look at before and afters you want recommendations from reliable people that you're going to the right practitioner and that's kind of your best bet in ensuring that something doesn't go wrong.

And body maintenance. So maybe you could help break that down to us.

The Drill Down
"ying" Discussed on The Drill Down
"And that Salesforce out there is seen as really going to help exact sciences. Cory, what is your next drill down? Let's look at Valero Energy. Valero trades in her vl O, shares rose today and they've gained 42% over the past 12 months. What's new with Valero? Big news out of a layer of layer, of course, not only has some gas stations that they manage and but they also very importantly, our giant refiner. And they've got some big operations on the Gulf Coast. They have begun restarting their St. Charles and Moreau refineries along the mississip river. That were shut down after hurricane item made landfall last month. Now you're thinking big dirty oil and gasoline. But really importantly, they're plant in Norco Louisiana that there's a joint venture with darling ingredients is one that interestingly, the St. Charles plant makes clean diesel, or makes renewable diesel. I should say, diesel made out of animal fats. On the leftover cooking oil and so on. And they do this stuff at great size. So what's interesting to me though is that they had to shut this thing down the last we heard from this company was in August before the storms hit. And what they had to say at that point was that they were rushing ahead to build yet another plant. Their diamond green renewable plant, they were going to build diamond green due to and diamond green three and yes, they were able to restart this plant, which the company announced yesterday in a press release. But they didn't say anything about how far they long and if it slowed down their development to develop more of this renewable diesel business that they were saying was really benefiting from the timing of it. They had gone out and bought steel before steel prices rose so much. They had room to build in shops because the room wasn't being used for anything else. The labor cost because they had an early mover advantage their labor costs were low in the gulf. Well, none of that stuff is true anymore. So I think this is one to keep an eye on. Let's listen to what their last earnings conference call. The senior vice president for alternative energy and project development spoke on that call, here's Martin parish talking about how they had these advantages in their favor in terms of timing with their diamond green or dgd green diesel plants two and three, which were soon to come online. One thing you have to remember now is EGD three is pretty much a carbon copy of DG D two. So that helps us. I mean, all the major equipment we changed a little bit, but just tweaks. So we had a lot of the engineering done sooner than you typically would have. Now obviously, we knew that when we funded it, but just getting out and the market while steel prices and everything were up. We kind of beat all that to the market. So we had placed orders before that happened. The delivery is good. I mean, the shop space is there and the labor situations really good on the Gulf Coast where we're building. So all those things and then just having experience we moved over experienced contractors from BG D two that had just built one of these units. So, you know, all the work, the structural work, concrete work, you know, structural steel is already going up. So we just got a really quick start out of the gates and we expect to be able to maintain that. So in a nutshell, that's it an experienced construction team and getting out in front of these price increases and shop space has been really good for us. Or it was really good for them. We'll see if it remains good for them. Again, one to keep an eye on because obviously the timing that was in their favor in late June may be isn't in their favor. Here going forward. Cory, what's your next drill down? I want to look at a struggling company that was once a high flyer in Casper sleep. Casper sleep yeah, the Casper was a hot topic. Just a few years ago, trades under CSP are shares fell today, and they've dropped over 42% in a year. So what's going on over a Casper? Yeah, this was a $1 billion company. A unicorn. They did an IPO that didn't go great or respect. I should say is the way they finally placed the IPO. CEO, Philip krim has not been entirely focused on his company as it's been struggling. I don't say that to be mean, but I'm being very accurate. He has not been entirely focused because he continues to launch spacs and other industries. One today with a risk analytics firm called complex, which of course you spell with a queue because why wouldn't you spell complex with a queue? It's a complex spelling. But complex, complex, I don't know. They were talking about they were going to do a spac, they pulled us back back. They're launching other specs. And all of this back activity else finance activity has led to it comes while Casper is struggling in particular with cost. Now there are some reports out there unconfirmed by the company of big layoffs of C suite layoffs, TechCrunch reporting a bunch of C suite layouts, personally, I think that my guess is the TechCrunch reporting is wrong because the company hasn't verified these things yet. And the importance been out there for a day. Nonetheless, it's unequivocally true that Casper sleep has been facing some problems not just with its share price, but with its gross margins. So part of the Casper model is not to manufacture the Casper mattresses, but to have just in time inventory, I'm the raw equipment raw materials when you need them, also just heard from our last story, we're all material prices were low. Now they're high. We were here in inflation for months and months. These guys are buying the principal ingredient for Casper mattresses as plastics and steel. So what you're dealing with in terms of expenses are oil prices, oil prices are extraordinarily high plastic prices are extraordinarily high. And so the gross margins for Casper have been much worse than their competitors on their last conference call. The analysts asks over and over again, what's up with your gross margins? They look one of the analysts that they look a lot worse than all of your competitors. What is it about Casper that you're not getting right and again, you wonder about the CEO's focus if he's out there launching back after his back after spec, here is what CEO Phil crim had to say. Now about his other activities, what about the multiple factors pressuring their margins and their business model? Good morning. I think you're just seeing the margins, again, it's multiple factors driving pressure on the margin in Q two. It was rapid expansion of the retail partnership channel, putting margin pressure on it as well as cost of goods inflation. I think we perhaps some vertically integrated players see the price increases show up faster given the adjustment time nature of our inventory position so some of the cost increases from our vendors might hit faster than it would if we had a stock supply of the raw materials that we need to make it. So I do think there is a timing difference of how some of the raw material price increases hit our business versus a vertically integrated peer. But overall we're buying the same chemicals that's impacting our business the way that it would even if you were vertically integrated. But there definitely could be some timing differences given the third party implications. It also means that as raw materials drop, it's going to show up in our P and L faster. Again, it's all.

The EntreLeadership Podcast
Why All Leaders Need an Assistant with Tricia Sciortino
"The lies that my time should be spent getting the work done. Checking off tasks, meeting with clients, pushing projects through work work, grind grind, and takes that to get business off the ground but. At some point, you end up doing a really good job. On the wrong things not bad things. But the wrong things are the things that were the right things when you start it but now they're the wrong things because. Somebody else can do it. And you'll never build and scale a peak referring business if you don't start delegating. From the Ramsey network, this is the entree leadership podcast where we help business leaders, grow themselves, their teams and their profits. I'm your host Daniel Tardy and delegation is something that my guest today knows a lot about. TRICIA short Tino. She's the CEO of Belay play. Well, they're friends of ours. They've been friends for a long time. Their founders came to an entreleadership within many years ago, and they have built a performing business using the principles that we teach you guys on this podcast every day and their company that specializes in helping businesses understand the value of their time may help leaders learn how to delegate and work with somebody who can do the job sometimes better than that leader themselves. Sounds kind of easy but Tristesse found that there's this thing that leaders do I've done this I. Know You've done this where we say. I don't feel comfortable delegating that yet. and. We ended up holding on things too long that we should be handing to somebody else. So we can work on the business and not just in it. And we hang onto long because we don't actually value our biggest asset and that is. Our time. There are so many people spinning their wheels and maybe investing in the things that don't have high Roi. I mean we we have such a limited resource in our time. So I personally am so maniacal about what I'm going to spend my time on how much time I'm going to spend on that thing and honestly being really clear about the things I'm not gonNA spend my time on and I think a lot. Of people don't necessarily run that filter through their mind they think about what they should be doing but maybe they don't spend enough time thinking about what they should not be doing and the the things you should not be doing could fall into a couple of different categories. It's something that doesn't have real Roi. It's something that isn't gonNA show up in the business at the end of the day it's minutia or its. Back end work and you can't actually see that in the long-term vision and Growth Strategy of your organization I think as the leader of an organization or company the things you should and can be focused on the things only really you can do and as the leader, it's those high level things like casting vision for the organization you know breathing into your team with your core values and your growth strategy and vision those. Are the things that we all know we should spend time on but in order to spend the right amount of time on those things, you actually have to say, no to a lot of other things you could work eighty hours a week, but should you and then are you the best to you when you do show up because are you burnt out and overworked and overwhelmed by all the things you're trying to do? I know one of the things you guys specialize in is delegating to a personal assistant. You guys work with hundreds and hundreds of leaders all over the country and pair them with executive assistant services. Somebody that's going to be their business partner and help pick up a lot of those things that they don't personally have to be doing and I have an incredible executive assistant that I work with here and knowing how amazing this is at this point, and then looking back at all the silly things that I tried to do myself. In my journey. I never should have been doing that to begin with I was so naive to think I'm the best person to do this. I'm just GONNA, take care of it because when my assistant does shelly does it faster she does it better. She's more efficient than I would ever be and she actually enjoys it. You know I interest. So many of these things I was doing just out of duty out of out of like I just have to do this to be responsible whereas shelley's like she's wired for this like she really does thrive in these activities and it's this beautiful partnership where I'm better off, she's better off. The teams better off because we're getting things done together as a partnership. But what do you say to leaders who maybe haven't had that experience they're going I, don't know I i. get the idea of having an assistant and I maybe they were my calendar and book my travel I mean, what do they really do that? I can't just go ahead and take care of myself. Yes I feel the same way about my assistant Melissa she really does help me ten x Mike Capacity truly to me. It is such an important relationship when executive and an executive assistant because they really do free you up to do the things we talked about for you up to do the things that only leader can do now what I love what you said is so true, we see it all the time is that most leaders and entrepreneurs don't thrive in the details. Nor should you be in them? So the beauty of it is that there are literally people wired to thrive on details they were born and excited about details and spreadsheets, and planning traveling calendars, and that is they're happy place. So you really start recognizing that everybody has their own zone of genius and there are people who complimented each other and sit in their different zone of genius. So if my zone of genius may be sales marketing vision and maybe my my weak areas are administration serum. Management. Calendar Planning will then you have that partner that can come alongside you and really fill your gaps you kind of become. That Ying and the Yang where they're able to partner with you and take care of the things that either you're not really good at or you actually don't like doing them. You know. So letting that stuff go and really building into that relationship is so important my assistant Melissa really gives me peace I tell her all the time when she helps me, Kinda, really just accomplish the things that get done in a given day or week that what she does. She gives me a great night's sleep because I know the things are handled and I don't have to be the one to handle them. So I am unburdened. By the fact that she's there from so she really does unburden me. From the details that may sit in what might my day to day looks like?

How COVID-19 Decreases Weather Forecast Accuracy
"Are Two things that you probably didn't think were connected the Kobe, nineteen pandemic and weather forecasts, but there is a link.

On a half so currently possibly we just have one quarter of cloth learning, so you can imagine the gap off Observations Ying Chen I'm meteorologist at the University of Lancaster in England. To create weather forecasts meteorologist need to feed accurate information about current weather. Conditions into their models and planes are one of the best ways to get such info.

Giant Pandas Finally Mate After Being Married In Catholic Ceremony
"Some exciting news from Hong Kong. Conservation Center Ocean Park after refusing to engage in sexual activity for ten years due to their devout Catholic faith, the Centers Pandas Yingying and leave finally made it after officially tying knot in a traditional Catholic ceremony, the two pandas Yin Yang a male age twelve and Lee aged ten made the rare promise to each other, not to mate, until they were sanctioned as husband and wife by a Catholic priest OPR correspondent pots joins us. US Now with the latest thanks for having me Leslie Alan, there's certainly been a lot of joy around this long-awaited moment. Can you tell us a little about the pandas pressures to mates, and how their faith has played a role in this? Absolutely, the two pandas have been a couple for nearly six years, which is about as long as they've been at the conservation center conservationist have pressured them to mate to help the panda population, but due to the pandas. Pandas Devout Catholic faith the to refuse to partake in any sexual activity outside the holy bonds of marriage. It is twenty twenty. Though. Couldn't they do the deed? If they knew they were going to marry each other? Anyway, you know test the car before you drive it so to speak well many follow that line of thinking. Yes, but according to sources close to the pandas ying and Lee both feared for their souls, and the eternal damnation, they could be bringing. Bringing upon themselves if they acted on their carnal desires, they both believed that sex was meant only for the act of creating life under the holy bond of marriage. You mentioned they were facing pressures to mate. What kind exactly at first the handlers would leave them alone together for extended periods of time when they were both in heat, but according to sources being put in that tempting environment, just allowed their faith to grow stronger. Here's head conservationist Li Chen. Spent years showing them other pandas, mating pumping putative female fair moans into the males living quarters, and even tried central music at one point. We thought they were perhaps developmentally challenged, but we simply did not realize how serious maintaining chastity was to the pandas. To See, such a pious act of restraint in today's Times was remarkable, and did they ever come close to breaking their promises to God? There was some finger and mouse stuff one week, but they clearly felt guilty about it.

The Herd with Colin Cowherd
How Netflix is shaking up Hollywood's traditional Oscar model
"Think it is. You know, it it. It's the Ying and the Yang the push the poll, obviously movies. You know, the marvel comics have you don't pitch something that can be you know, a trilogy a lot of studios aren't interested. I work at you know, FOX where Rupert Murdoch has sold his movie division. But I also think televisions as good as it's ever been. You know, Rauma is a Netflix movie Amazon prime what do you make about the emergence of net flicks net flicks movies being nominated there certainly have much greater budgets than television shows do at a NBC or ABC how is that playing in Hollywood where net flicks now can win Oscars. Well, first of all they have and they're putting a lot of money into Roma, and they spent much more time having romantic theater to sorta get some of these older. Look, you're not gonna talk to anybody on your show, Colin who spends more time with octogenarian members of the academy than I do. They become a lot of my really good friends. But there is definitely some pushback that he man that's not a movie, I don't watch a movie on my television. I mean, I might watch screener on on television. TV shows costing one hundred million. I mean, I think it's I think I when I look at net flicks. It's not TV it's a combo. It's a hybrid. That's right. I think it's just harder to get the older academy voters to accept that. But Roma I think it's going to win the odds favorite winning best picture. And you know, once they get one that sorta though pushed down that wall in that house will crumble, and and I think that we'll see many more movies that premiere on Netflix or prime or apple. And you know when apple comes. They're gonna come hard with real quality. I mean, I think you're right. There's a lot of talk in this town, but moaning, the there's no mid range picture, either spend a hundred dollars two hundred and fifty million or you can spend eight hundred thousand but there's nothing, where's the twelve million to twenty million dollar picture and those stories are on television. They are getting written for television. As you just said, I mean, it's beyond calling this the golden age of television. This is a whole new plane. Television. I mean, you can there are now thirty shows that I know are excellent that I can't even get to. And that's where the best writing is is on television. There's some good writing and movies, but but the best writing out here, which is what and writing drives these stories. The best writing is happening on on television on Netflix on prime, and and and, you know, better call Saul and the Americans and all these great great shows on on on basic cable.
