Welche Bilder haben Sie im Kopf, wenn Sie an einen Nachtzug denken? Bilder aus Filmen, wie Polarexpress oder Harry Potter? Erinnerungen an eine Urlaubsreise in Fernost? Für eine Fahrt mit dem Nachtzug ist das Träumen in eine Filmwelt aber gar nicht mehr nötig. Mit der Österreichische Bundesbahn (ÖBB) kann man über Nacht in über 25 europäische Metropolen reisen, z.B. bequem von Köln nach Wien. Unsere Interviewpartnerin dieser Podcastfolge ist Michaela Huber. Sie ist Vorständin bei der ÖBB Personenverkehr AG und bringt mit großer Leidenschaft den ÖBB Nightjet auf Europas Schienen, denn für sie ist ganz klar: „Fahren mit dem Nachtzug ist lässig statt stressig.“ Sie erzählt uns, welchen Ansporn sie hat, was es braucht, um eine neue Nachtzugstrecke zu etablieren und was der Nachtzug für nachhaltiges Reisen bedeutet.

Phil and Jake rank the emotional response known as the uncanny valley effect, and the city of Bend, Oregon on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Masahira Mori is a robot expert and professor (the ASIMO robot was designed by one of his students). It should never be doubted that Jake has read Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. The Final Fantasy movie is an oft-cited example of the uncanny valley effect. It's an animated movie made entirely with CGI, like a video game cut-scene, and audiences were unsettled by the creepy dead eyes.The Beowulf movie has a similar vibe. Pokemon of course doesn't go for photorealism, that's why it's universally beloved. In an episode of The Simpsons, Homer gets a pet lobster who looks to Homer like this, whereas other characters see the lobster like this. Boston Dynamics makes robots that move in human-like ways. There's a character in Ted Lasso played by Brett Goldstein (who just won an Emmy for the role). Many viewers thought this guy didn't exist and was a CGI creation. It seems ludicrous until you see this picture of his character, he looks like a FIFA video game character. Breath of the Wild is a Nintendo game that's beautiful but not photorealistic. It bypasses the uncanny valley. Star Wars tried CGI versions of Carrie Fisher and Peter Cushing in the same movie. It seems gross and scary to Phil (unlike C-3P0 and R2-D2). Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation was a real human actor deliberately playing a robot who seemed vaguely unnatural. Phil missed the point of any stories about him because he looked different. Charlie XCX is a pop star who's worked with PC Music which is a hard-to-explain collective / label that navigates the uncanny valley of music (if that exists) by making aggressively fake-sounding music and wallowing in artifice. The way she (or any public figure) manages her persona is tied up with UV-related ideas. In looking for a proper clip of her to link to we found this news story about how her record label is pushing her to be more "real" and she would prefer to be less real! Drum machines are like this too. The 808 kick drum doesn't sound real, that's why it's better than some other more real-sounding synthesizers. Here's the biting dolls scene from Barbarella. The Polar Express is a deeply cursed movie and features an uncanny valley hall-of-fame performance by Steven Tyler as a scatting Christmas elf. The Matrix Reloaded had a big fight scene which had been promoted ahead of the release of the film but when the movie came out it was unsatisfying and weightless, and it didn't help that it came out around the same time as Kill Bill Vol. 1, which had a massive fight scene with real stakes and actual physicality. REI's headquarters is in Kent, WA (not Bend). While in Bend, Jake picked up a hazy IPA from Immersion Brewing. It paired pretty well with the Impossible Burger that he got from the Incred-A-Bowl food truck. Les Schwab was the founder of a chain of tire retailers in the Western US. Phil is probably conflating the permanent tire fire on the Simpsons with an event in the 90s in Oregon where there was a real tire fire and he assumed that because it involved tires and Oregon, it had something to do with Les Schwab. Our vague recollection of some sort of some kind of lava cave attraction near Bend was surely about the Lava River Cave.

In this episode, the gang breaks down the age old debate: what's more important, physical attraction or having a good personality? After the intro, Lexi gives an update on what it was like to have her virtual dick sucked in VR porn in “I Did Something Weird Last Night” (13:21). Then they introduce the main segment (23:14), talk about the role a favorite “look” or personal embellishment might play (28:12), whether or not that item cheapens your attraction (32:33), and why the body count discussion should never be had (39:49). Finally, they wrap things up with a summer-vacation themed fuck-marry-kill (56:02).NEW EPISODES DROP EVERY MONDAY!

Neil Lim Sang was born in Jamaica. His family emigrated to Canada when he was six. His dad was diagnosed with ALS and passed when Neil was only fifteen. He was partnered with a Big Brother who had a strong influence on his interest in making art. He attended art college and worked with all kinds of traditional media. After finishing there he continued on at Sheridan where he studied both computer graphics and animation. His first jobs were in New York City and Mexico City doing animated flying logos. He came to work in Berkeley in the early 1990's at Rocket Science Games. He later landed a job at ILM in the commercials division where he forged his skills and what he calls his "vfx tourettes". Commercials ran at a breakneck speed and taught Neil how to do great work fast. After seven years Neil left to pursue other opportunities including Sony where he worked on Polar Express doing motion capture, and a tour in Australia on Happy Feet 2. Today he works as a senior artist on all kinds of projects. Neil's passion for music fuels his creative drive. He's an incredible colleague and friend with a positive work ethic and an amazing story. It was so much fun to catch up with Neil and talk about his genuine zest for life.

Leute, erstmal mussten wir singen. Für Maik, zum Siebzigsten. Und dann die Kerzen ausblasen, um uns was wünschen zu können. Eine Liga ohne Leiden, zum Beispiel. Oder Interviews ohne Idiotien. Also Wahrheiten, die wir nicht erst vom Bildschirm abfilmen müssen. Und Zustände, die noch an Ort und Stelle hinterfragt werden. Mit Regeln, die nicht im Korsett ersticken, zu enge Krawatten um zu dicke Hälse, sondern beweglich bleiben wie das Spiel selbst. Neue Entscheidungen auch. Wir würden sie tragen, wie lässige Fliegen. Das wäre doch was. Das wäre dann unsere ganz eigene, gar nicht so kleine Utopie. Aber natürlich kennen auch wir die Zwänge der Realität. Viel Mauern, wenig Bande. Hin und wieder stoßen wir uns daran. Dann wissen wir nicht weiter. Weshalb wir auch heute mal wieder ganz vorne anfangen mussten. In München zum Beispiel, wo sie mit neuem Personal bald wieder die alten Geschichten erzählen wollen, weil der Mantel dann zur Trainingsjacke passen und selbst die erhobene Augenbraue sauber gezupft werden soll. Ein Alptraum in rosarot. Die Spannung jedenfalls, sie liegt mal wieder dahinter. In Frankfurt. Oder in Wolfsburg, diesmal wirklich Erlebnisstadt. Ab und an, so geht ja die Mär, hält der ICE dort nicht an. Am Samstag allerdings kam Dortmund mit der Lokomotive, mit dem vereinseigenen Polarexpress, der ohne Notbremse schlichtweg nicht aufzuhalten war. So riecht es am Phoenixsee, längst Ascheplatz im eigentlichen Sinne, wieder nach Champions League. Und außerdem, Randnotiz und eher ein Gag fürs Ohr, war nach über 20 Jahren, mal wieder ein Ridle an einem Dortmunder Treffer beteiligt. Der Baku, sie werden ihn Air nennen, weil er sich danach am liebsten in Luft aufgelöst hätte. Auf Schalke, also nicht weit weg von Dortmund, aber doch sehr weit weg von der Champions League, wird derweil weiter an der schlimmsten Saison der Vereinsgeschichte gearbeitet. Mit Jagdszenen aus dem Hooligan-Lehrbuch und einer Personalpolitik, die entweder von kompletter Ignoranz oder einem bitterbösen, historisch begründeten Zynismus getrieben wird. Denn die Schalker, so viel kann man verraten, sind gerade darum bemüht, auch noch den schlechtesten Rückpass aufzunehmen, während in Hamburg, zum Unmut vieler Hamburger übrigens, immer noch gespielt wird. Das ist natürlich die große Tristesse, weshalb wir hintenraus jetzt zwingend noch ein paar schöne Worte verlieren müssen. Über einen Verein, der endlich wieder singen und lachen darf, weil er in den vergangenen drei Monaten doch wirklich zu sich selbst zurückgefunden hat. Mit einem, Obacht jetzt, ganz neuen Mainz-Set. Darauf einen Tusch. Die Mainzer sind, Bo Svensson sei Dank, jetzt wieder der aufregende Konfettiverein, der selbst Karneval feiert, während er dem Meister die Party versaut. Und damit, Boyband und Bütten, macht dann auch die Liga wieder Spaß. Hoffen wir, dass es so bleibt. Denn, ihr wisst ja, nach dem Lob ist vor dem Fluch. Bis dahin aber wünschen wir euch viel Spaß mit der neuen Folge! Werbepartner dieser Folge ist die KoRo Drogerie.

Eddie has left an indelible mark on cinema with his roles in Grease, War Games, Polar Express, and a slew of other films, along with his voice work in animation. Norbert and I had the sincere pleasure of speaking to Eddie about all his roles, his take on acting, and staying humble. He has amazing stories and they definitely show a side of Hollywood we don't hear enough about. And after checking out this podcast, you're going to want to go over to Facebook and follow Eddie. He puts out jokes and great content all the time. He is truly one of the nicest guys we have ever interviewed and saying that has nothing to do with the compliments he gave us. :)

Eddie Deezen is known to movie fans from his work on Grease, The Polar Express, War Games, and 1941. He’s known to animation fans for his voice acting on Dexter’s Laboratory, Duckman, and a host of others. He’s known to MST3k fans as “Bill Gates Guy” from Laserblast. And he’s known to me as an awesome guy who has a lot of great insights into TV and movies from all eras. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, Eddie and I talk about the craft of acting, how it differs on stage vs. on-camera, and what makes for good drama and good comedy. He and I share a lot of insights into the greatest of the greats: The Twilight Zone, Gilligan’s Island, and The Three Stooges. — See Show Notes at www.AaronBossig.com Follow me on Twitter - @AaronBossig Podcast logo and graphics by Marcie London www.MarcieLondon.com - @MarcieStarfleet

Do you love Christmas? Do you love Christmas movies? Don’t you wish it was Christmas year round? We do too! Welcome to The 52 Weeks of Christmas Podcast! Join Caroline […] The post The 52 Weeks of Christmas Podcast (Polar Express) appeared first on Pod Clubhouse.
This week the guys grab their parkas and attempt to suspend disbelief as their wits are taxed to the breaking point with the heavy handed and not well thought out story of the Polar Express if it were created and run by the illegitimate love child of Willie Wonka and a coked out Wizard of Oz, it's 2013's Snowpiercer.

Dave and Ethan interview longtime singer and studio vocalist Monique Donnelly, who's recorded with Weird Al, and toured as a back-up singer for his 2019 Strings Attached Tour. Monique shares stories about singing on the Straight Outta Lynwood, Alpocalypse, and Mandatory Fun albums, tales of touring with Weird Al for 3 months, lending her voice to over 100 major motion pictures, and working with artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, Michael Bublé, Robin Williams and more.
I have two related funny stories to the theme of this podcast. Have you ever seen the "Polar Express" movie during Christmas? Most of you have. Toward the end, when the main characters are lost in North Pole, they stumble in the elf operations room. There are a number of videos playing of kids and a red buzzer goes off. One kid is shown on the Naughty List as he repeats the phrase, "I didn't do it. I didn't do it. I didn't do it." After the movie, my own kids were repeating that phrase including my 3-year-old and if you have kids, so are they. This innocence is cute as a kid, but not as an adult leading a business. My Uncle Bob told me a story about a friend. This guy is a jack of all trades. He does lawns, gutter cleaning, moving, tree service, power washing, whatever. He just goes wherever the money is. But this Jack is uninsured and thus, unprofessional! He takes on a lot of risk. If he is guilty of any damage, the homeowner better hope he doesn't pull the Polar Express line. My uncle told me that a neighbor of his called Jack over to remove an oak tree. When he asked him if he had insurance, Jack lied and said he did. He successfully removed the oak tree, but he didn't put the tree where it was supposed to go. A professional would survey the yard and take vital measurements first. Jack did not and the cry of TIMBER lead to the sound of an oak tree smashing into the roof of the house! It was a miscalculation for Jack. Thankfully, no one was injured. But the house was severely damaged. My uncle told me me how this will play out. When the homeowner hires someone knowingly that doesn't have insurance they take the risk and hope that their own insurance will cover damages if something happens. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won't. Sometimes it covers partial, but never the whole thing. In this case, if it turns out the contractor lied about having insurance. The homeowner can file a lawsuit, but the guy has no money and he won't get anything anyway. The homeowner is screwed either way. What's the lesson here? It's pretty obvious. Don't be Jack. Don't hire Jack. Let him keep rolling down the hill with Jill.For the main part of this episode, I want to share a short story that happened on the way to work with my kids. As I drove to work, a headache was pounding and I said out loud without realizing it. "I meant to bring the Advil with me, but I forgot." As soon as I said it, my brain kicked this thought. "A lot of good meaning to do it brought me. My head still hurts!" I realized how true that statement is for so many. So many people are meaning to do things, but never do them. in other words, "I meant to do it" is a way to justify their intent but never having to do the action. It's a form of making an excuse. I won't accept that type of life. I got home from work that day and immediately put the Advil in my work bag. I removed the excuse for the future. Unless people start changing their 'meants' into 'dos', they'll be feeling a lot of pain at some point too. And by that time, Advil won't cure it!

As you watch your Christmas movies and think about your relationship with God, I hope that this will give you something interesting to think about. Hit me up on IG! @russellbrunson Text Me! 208-231-3797 Join my newsletter at marketingsecrets.com ---Transcript--- Hey everybody. This is Russell Brunson. Welcome back to the Marketing Secrets Podcast. And actually we're like a couple of days before Christmas. Instead of "Hey", maybe I should say, "Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas." And welcome to the Marketing Secrets Podcast. All right, everybody, we are getting ready for the holidays. I hope you are as well. I know this year has been nuts for pretty much everybody. And so I hope that we are, like me, looking forward to a time where we get to stop thinking and stressing and just think about our families for a little bit. I'm looking forward to it, and hopefully you are as well. Anyway, I'm telling you a story happened last night. It was kind of interesting. So I was, we were going to, my wife was actually, we were with the kids, it was after church and we're kind of getting the kids settled in. And we had a Christmas program at church, which was really nice, but kind of the tone in the house, hasn't been Christmasy and my wife, Colette, was just like, we need to do something so it feels like Christmas in here. And so she went and put in The Polar Express, which, obviously we've seen that a million times. It was kind of fun as a family to sit and watch it. And it was interesting as I was watching this, the whole concept is believe, and it's talking about believing in Santa and things like that. And I'm not going to talk too much about that, but I think that obviously all the things that are happening in the Christmas holiday are symbolic, right? It's the symbolism of gifts. And Christmas is representing Christ and him coming and him bringing the ultimate gift of his life to us and how amazing it is. And then our job is to believe in him and believe in that gift to believe in these things. And again, I know that there are different faiths and denominations listening to this, and if you're not Christian, that's okay. This is, if you were telling me some of your beliefs and no matter what you had, I would respect that and listen, and it wouldn't be offensive to me. So hopefully it's not to you either, but as a Christian, as someone who believes in Christ, I think that Christmas is all symbolic, obviously of him and this gift he brought and our job is to believe in him and then having a belief that our belief actually leads into actions, right? Like if you do believe him, then what does that mean about you? How are you going to try to change your life? How do you become a better person? How are you going to try to live? And it's interesting, as I was thinking about that, I was thinking, Christmas is such a type and shadow of Christ. And I started thinking about just how many other things throughout life are types and shadows of that, right? For those who read the Old Testament, you have the story of Abraham and Isaac and how he had to sacrifice his son. Right. And that is the type and shadow of when our heavenly Father had to sacrifice his son Christ. And throughout the Bible and through other scriptures, like there's all these types and shadows where things are happening and it's foreshadowing events that are happening later in time. Right. And it's so interesting. And I think that, I feel like we have this consistent, I don't know how to explain this correctly. Hopefully I don't mess this up too bad, but throughout our lives, there's these patterns that repeat themselves for us to see and to notice. Right. And it's interesting because my goal is not to get sacrilegious with it. So hopefully I'm not, but it's interesting, you guys are here listening to this podcast because you're entrepreneurs and you're trying to figure out how to market your business and things like that. And so what's the correlation for us, right? And you think about that, in the movie, The Polar Express, these kids are getting on a train and the train's moving forward. And one of the lines of the end is your job is not to think of the train, try to decide if the train's real or not, your job is just to get on the train. Right? And they go through the whole process and talk about how important is to believe. And you've got to believe in this thing you can't see yet and there's kind of the guy in the top of the Polar Express, who's like the opposite. He's the naysayer. He's like, if you can't see it, you can't believe it. You know? And there's kind of the light and the dark and a pulling in both directions. Right? And so obviously there's the spiritual journey that that's symbolizing, right? This is life. We're on this train. We're going towards something... You believe, you don't believe, there's people holding you away and all those kinds of things as you were going to this destination. But I think about it with business, how similar it is too. We come on this business and it's like, okay, the train's moving, right? All you guys were here, either you're on the train now, or you're watching the train go by. You're seeing stories of a person after person after person having success. And you're like, "I don't know what to do. I'd get on the train ride. I get off the train. Is that train even real? Like, is this stuff real what Russell's talking about? Is a fake? Are people actually having success? There's all these things, right. And the first step is your goal is not to try to believe that the trains real or not, it's just to get on the train, right. And so if you're not on the train, that's the first step. Then you get on the train and then it's like, I still think there's so many people that are skeptical. Oh, is this real? Is it not real? Like, do I believe, do I not believe? And it's like, you've got to believe, because if you don't believe, if you don't have faith first then your actions aren't going to follow. I think this might be real but I'm not really sure. The way that you pursue that is going to change, right. It's a reason why when we have faith in God, or in Christ, wherever you have faith in, right? If you have faith and you actually believe, you're going to do things differently. You're going to live differently. You can become someone different because you have belief in it. And if you're like, "Ah, this may or may not be." You're more skeptical, you're not going to take the steps you need to do. And the same thing is true in business. Like in business, if you're getting on this train and you're, "I think it's true, but I'm not really sure. I'm kind of going back and forth. Maybe it's a scam. Maybe it's not, maybe I'm successful, I'm not going to be able to be successful." All the things, right. If you don't have belief, you're not going to take the steps necessary to be successful. That's just, it's an eternal principle in anything, and it's true in... Obviously this is a business podcast, but is true in all aspects of life, right? With marriage. When you meet your spouse, your significant other, the person that you're going to marry, it's like, "Ah, do I get on the train? Do I not going on the train. Is this the right person?" It's like no, like you have to believe this is the right person. Right. You have to have belief in it. And then if you believe like this is your person that you're going to marry, this is my spouse, you do things differently. Right. You become someone different. And so it's true in all aspects of life, same with if you're going to school, if you're going into, I don't care what it is. And so I just, as I was watching, I was just like thinking how interesting it is. How we have these types and these shadows, that the process is the same though over and over and over again. Right? And so in this Christmas season, I just, I don't know, this is kind of a weird podcast to do, and I'm just nervous recording it. Maybe it makes no sense to you. But I think that these principles, as we use them in the Christmas thing, they're kind of funny and they're cute. We watched all the cartoons and the TV shows and there's that version of it. But if you look at it through the lens of like, this is a type and a shadow of my beliefs in God, or my beliefs in my business, or my beliefs in my spouse, my beliefs in myself, my own identity, my own... I can start looking at that. There's these really cool patterns that happen consistently over and over and over and over and over again. And maybe the movies talking about belief in something that may not actually be real, but it's, again, it's a fable, it's a story to illustrate something differently. Right. And so, I don't know, that's kind of been my interesting thing for me as I've been watching this and just looking at... I used to watch Christmas movies just for an enjoying thing, but I'm trying to look at them now, at least as of yesterday, like as a personal development seminar, right? Like what are the principles here? They're talking about belief, they're talking about faith, they're talking about, if you do have belief, like how does that change? If you have real faith, how does that change your actions? And then what's the fruits of that? Like what happens because of it? Right. And so, anyway, it's kind of interesting. So my challenge for you guys in this Christmas season, you guys are watching these things and having fun with your family is just start looking at it because it's something that you can use in different areas of your life, again, from your business, to your spiritual life, to your family life, to relationships. The pattern is there and it repeats itself over and over and over again. It's interesting. It's like when I was geeking out and doing all this study on the hero's two journeys, if I've done some episodes on that, but if you read the book, The Hero With a Thousand Faces, right, he talks about Joseph Campbell in that book, talks about if you look at all a story from like the beginning of time, until now, it doesn't matter what society, what language, what time, what era, the story frameworks are the same. And you see them over and over and over again, right? Almost all successful movie, book, folklore, myth, story, like they all follow the same pattern. I think for a lot of us, at least for me, I look and I'm like, that's really cool. I'm going to, this is the pattern that George Lucas used to build Star Wars. Like, it's really cool. There's the pattern. I see it. I'm going to go back and replicate it. But it's like, why is that pattern everywhere? Why has it been in our DNA as a society from the beginning of time till now? It doesn't matter what language, what society, what time, what era you live in that, that thing is there. And say, maybe it's just not a storyline that someone invented and taught everybody back way back in the day. Maybe it's a framework. Maybe it's true. Maybe it's something there. In fact, if you start looking at just The Hero With a Thousand Faces, right. That book or that framework, it's like, oh my gosh, like the reason why this storyline has been used so many times, it's because it's our storyline, it's your storyline. Right. You start looking at that and that's why we really connect with those movies, because we start seeing this over and over and over again, it's like, this is my story. And so, I don't know, maybe I'm overthinking things. Maybe it's out of place when we talk about this on a marketing podcast. But I just want you guys to, as you're watching movies and things, is just try to put yourself in that, how does this relate to your business, how does it relate to your life, how does it relate to your spirituality? How does really through relationship with a God? Because it does. And even though the stories may be goofy, maybe a reindeer with a red nose and maybe, whatever, the frameworks, the stories that you guys are hearing are based on true principles and there's there's truth in all these things. So anyway, there you go. I'm sure it offends someone. For you, I apologize. For everybody else, hope you enjoyed it. And if you got nothing from this, then just skip through it and listen to next episode after Christmas. But that said, Merry Christmas. I appreciate you guys all. I'm grateful to be here. Grateful, honestly, for your attention. The fact that you listen in this podcast means the world to me, hopefully you get value from it. And we have some new things coming up in the new year and moving forward to make the podcast even better, more exciting. So I'll keep you guys loop on that. With that said, if I don't talk to you before the end of the holidays, have a great holiday and we'll talk to you all again later. Bye, everybody.
