Who's That Girl? A New Girl Podcast

This podcast covers New Girl Season 3, Episode 13, Birthday, which originally aired on January 21, 2014 and was written by Kim Rosenstock and directed by Richie Keen. Here's a quick recap of the episode:It's Jess's birthday and Nick has gone all out to plan her a surprise birthday party but forgets to plan the day of… meanwhile Coach and Winston have a bake off of who can make the best birthday cake and Schmidt helps Cece at her new bartending job.We discuss Pop Culture References such as:Boomer - The cake Winston brought home said “Happy Birthday Boomer!”[Instagram] - Schmidt mentioned he would pass time by double tapping some “insta-g's”. Additional Pop Culture References such as:Witness / "Be careful out among them English." - When Rose is out with Jess at the beginning of the episode, Rose shares that her parents took her to see Witness and then they never came back; Rose then quotes a line in the movie. Witness is a 1985 American neo-noir dramatic crime thriller film starring Harrison Ford & Kelly McGillis. The film focuses on a police detective protecting an Amish woman and her young son, who becomes a target after he witnesses a brutal murder in a Philadelphia train station. The film earned eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Ford, and won Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Editing.Rudy - When Nick is working on putting together Jess's party Schmidt shares he's been an inspiration and that this will be their “Rudy.” Rudy is a 1993 American biographical sports film starring Sean Astin. The story is an account of the life of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, who harbored dreams of playing football at the University of Notre Dame despite significant obstacles. It was the first film that the Notre Dame administration allowed to be shot on campus since Knute Rockne, All American in 1940. Rudy was named one of the best 25 sports movies of the previous 25 years in two polls by ESPN.This episode we discuss which one of us is most likely to guide someone through how to make a great cocktail, mess up a standard drink recipe, plan a surprise party, and get really excited about their birthday. We give an honorable mention to Schmidt's contribution to the birthday video but cover the scene where Schmidt walks Cece through how to make an old fashioned as our “Schmidtism” this episode. For our “Not in the 2020s”, we briefly touch on Mike's comments about Cece's body and also the flip phone during the video Nick put together. In our “Yes in the 2020s” we discuss the lack of toxic masculinity with Winston and Coach doing a bake off and Winston standing up for himself regarding basketball. We also explore the career of Ben Falcone (Mike), the guest star of this episode and specifically mentioned an Instagram story where Ben and Melissa asked to be in Thor and a recent link of Ben and Melissa on James Corden. Also in this episode were the following guest stars who we do not discuss in the podcast: Jamie Lee Curtis (Joan Day - Previously Discussed in S2E8), Angela Kinsey (Rose - Previously Discussed in S3E2), Jessica Chaffin (Bertie - Previously Discussed in S3E9), Josh Gad (Bearclaw - Previously Discussed in S2E2), Curtis Armstrong (Principal Foster - Previously Discussed in S2E24), June Diane Raphael (Sadie - Previously Discussed in S1E15), Steve Agee (Outside Dave - Previously Discussed in S2E17), Ralph Ahn (Tran - Previously Discussed in S2E7), Rob Reiner (Bob Day - Previously Discussed in S2E8), Cheyenne Nguyen (Jenny), and Tom Lommel (Patron).We also touch on an editing goof on this podcast when Coach throws a bag into the kitchen and it is missing in the next shot. Additionally, we do a deep dive on the character's birthdays and what we have seen so far in the show. This episode we did not find any new bears.While not discussed in the podcast, we noted other references in this episode including:Old Fashioned Cocktail - This episode, Cece's struggling at the bar and Schmidt teaches her how to make an Old Fashioned cocktail. This cocktail is made with whiskey, sugar, Angostura bitters, and an orange peel (or cherry) for garnish and is a cocktail made for whiskey lovers. It was developed in the 19th century and given its name in the 1880s.Griffith Park - When Nick is trying to distract Jess, he asks his friends if they know any time consuming and free activities in Griffith Park. Griffith Park is a large park at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains in Los Angeles and contains popular attractions like a zoo, an observatory, a history museum, and the Hollywood sign. It is much larger than Central Park in New York and the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.When Schmidt is trying to make Cece feel better about not graduating high school, he lists the below group of people who didn't graduate:Einstein - Albert Einstein was a German theoretical physicist who is best known for his theory of relativity. While he was a good student, he could not stand school as he did not like the way the teachers taught, objectively. He quit at his teacher's suggestion at 15 and never returned.Bill Gates - Bill Gates is an American businessman, software developer, philanthropist, and author who co-founded Microsoft with his childhood friend. While he was excused from his math class (in high school) to focus on computer programming, he dropped out from college at Harvard instead of high school.Anne Frank - Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank was a Jewish girl who kept a diary during World War 2, documenting her life in hiding while Germany was under Nazi persecution. She died at the age of 15 in a concentration camp.This episode got a 9/10 rating from both Kritika and Kelly; Kritika's favorite character was Nick and Kelly's favorite was Schmidt.Thanks for listening and stay tuned for Episode 14!Music: "Hotshot” by scottholmesmusic.comFollow us on Twitter, Instagram or email us at whosthatgirlpod@gmail.com!Website: https://smallscreenchatter.com/

John Gatins is an Oscar-nominated screenwriter. In this episode, John speaks about initially coming to Hollywood to be an actor, before landing a chance opportunity to re-write a high school football movie called Varsity Blues in 1999. The film's success launched a screenwriting career that would place John as one of the most sought-after “script doctors” in Hollywood, working on films ranging from Behind Enemy Lines to Power Rangers to the forthcoming Aladdin 2. But it also enabled John to champion his passion project—a complex character study about an alcoholic commercial airline pilot called Flight, starring Denzel Washington, which garnered John an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay in 2013. John also describes growing up in New York, and how his mother landing a job in the advancement office at Vassar College changed the trajectory of his life. Due to Vassar providing tuition assistance to the admitted children of Vassar staff, John and his siblings were able to access a college experience they could never have afforded otherwise. John and his wife Ling, whom he met at Vassar and was also a financial aid recipient, credit Vassar with inspiring them to become Parent Chairs of Annual Giving at Harvard-Westlake—aiming to provide at Harvard-Westlake the same type of transformational educational opportunities that had been afforded to them in college. John references Pat Vrett of Arlington High School (NY), Elizabeth Socolow of Vassar College, and filmmaker Robert Zemeckis as profound life influences.

This week on On Story we'll hear from screenwriter Craig Borten on writing the 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club which starred Matthew McConaughey. Borten is best known for his Oscar-nominated script for the 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club.    After hearing about Ron Woodroof, the original founder of the "Dallas Buyers Club" for the distribution of unapproved HIV medications, in the early 1990s, and interviewing Woodroof in 1992, Borten decided to write a screenplay about Woodroof and his buyer's club. He successfully sold the script in 1996, but shortly afterward the production company that had bought it dissolved. In 2001, he rewrote the script with Melisa Wallack and in 2009, Borten and Wallack were able to cast Matthew McConaughey and secure funding for the film's production. The film was released in 2013, more than two decades after Borten met Woodroof, and more than 15 years after selling his first version of the script. Dallas Buyers Club received numerous accolades, including Academy Award nominations for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.   Moderator Fred Strype spoke with Borten at the Austin Film Festival.

However, back in 1993, she made a huge splash with her beautifully haunting film "The Piano," starring Holly Hunter, Harvey Keitel, Sam Neill & Anna Paquin. Becoming the first woman ever to win the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and winning the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, the film would also earn two additional Academy Awards for Best Actress (Holly Hunter) and Best Supporting Actress (Anna Paquin, who was only eleven at the time).

Director Joachim Trier has been nominated for the Best Original Screenplay and Best International Film Oscars for The Worst Person in the World. If the title refers to his protagonist that's rather harsh. Julie is, after all, only trying to navigate relationships and career and find happiness and meaning in her life in contemporary Oslo. Trier talks to Nick Ahad about using a novelistic form – prologue, chapters, epilogue – in the creation of a film, working with Cannes Best Actress winner Renate Reinsve, and how his film is full of light, warmth and humour - the very opposite of Scandi Noir. Clare Lilley, curator and new director of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park discusses the first major UK exhibition of American painter, sculptor and printmaker Robert Indiana and the Park's future. There have been several announcements recently from the Scottish Government about funding and supporting the revival of Scotland's cultural landscape in the wake of the pandemic. We talk to Angus Robertson, the Cabinet Secretary for the Constitution, External Affairs and Culture, about his Government's plans for culture, north of the border.

Happy 35th Anniversary to what is considered by many to not only be one of the seminal films about the Vietnam conflict but one of the Greatest War Films of All Time. It was a major breakout for its creator Oliver Stone who himself was a decorated veteran of that war – for this film, he won both Best Director and Best Original Screenplay as he spent many years after returning home writing this screenplay.  This film mainly focuses on the story of newly enlisted Private Taylor played by Charlie Sheen and his evolving relationships with two very different senior officers of his platoon, Barnes played by Tom Berenger and Elias played by Willem Dafoe.  We follow these soldiers along with several others as they engage in on-the-ground conflict with the Viet Cong and eventually each other.  What results is an unforgettable drama loaded with unforgettable moments and images.WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE AND MATERIALHost: Geoff Gershon Producer: Marlene Gershonhttps://livingforthecinema.com/#livingforthecinema #moviereviews #platoon #vietnamwar #vietnamconflict #oliverstone #charliesheen #willemdafoe #tomberenger #forestwhitaker #johnnydepp #keithdavid #kevindillon #johncmcginley

Comedy and romantic comedy is thriving in Telugu cinema. It's not the case with other industries of similar size. This year, cinema theatres briefly opened before the second wave of the pandemic in India and a small film that no one saw coming made a huge splash. It became one of the biggest hits critically and commercially. Maybe it was the timing, maybe it was the nature of the film or the absolute abandon with which it was made, the audiences couldn't have enough of it. It is indeed Anudeep KV's Jathi Ratnalu, a comedy that pushes the genre in every fashion, may it be the dark part of it or the silly. Jathi Ratnalu is streaming on Amazon Prime. The film stars Naveen Polishetty, Rahul Ramakrishna, Priyadarshi, Faria Abdullah, Murli Sharma et al. Aditya and Anantha are joined by writer, director, actor Rahul Ravindran. Rahul made one of the best romantic comedies in recent times - Chi La Sow - for which he won the National Award for Best Original Screenplay. We talked about our favorite sequences from the film, why comedy and romcom are doing great in Telugu cinema, Naveen's career arc so far, whether the film translates well for non-Telugu audiences and more.

Randall Wallace, graduate of Duke University, is an American NYT bestselling author of seven novels, as well as a screenwriter (TV and film), director, producer, songwriter, holder of a black belt in karate, and founder of Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity. He is perhaps best known for writing the historical drama Braveheart (1995), which earned him a Writers Guild of America Award for Best Original Screenplay and an Academy Award nomination in the same category, but has since directed The Man in the Iron Mask (1998), We Were Soldiers (2002), Secretariat (2010) and Heaven Is for Real (2014). Mr. Wallace also penned the lyrics to the acclaimed hymn Mansions of the Lord (music by Nick Glennie-Smith), featured in the soundtrack of When We Were Soldiers and performed as the recessional for President Ronald Reagan's funeral. Mr. Wallace and I discussed the power of art, music and story, his unlikely stint writing songs for an animal band, the profound influence of Biblical stories on his work and thought, the experience of depression, the necessity and significance of sacrifice, the general development of his career as a successful Hollywood writer and director, and his upcoming action movie about the Pope. This episode was recorded on March 9th, 2021.
