American actor, martial artist, and film producer
Expert en arts martiaux, Nico Toscani est recruté par la CIA mais suite à des différends avec son supérieur Zagon, il démissionne. Devenu simple policier à Chicago, il se lance sur les traces d'un trafiquant de drogue mais lors de son arrestation, les services secrets exigent sa libération. Se doutant de quelque chose, Nico décide de suivre l'affaire de près et se retrouve très vite confronté à un complot commandité par le FBI.Pour les besoins de ce nouvel épisode filmé de STEROIDS - LE PODCAST, Stéphane Moïssakis est rejoint par un autre expert de Steven Seagal, à savoir l'inestimable Julien Charpentier. Et bien que ça puisse les démanger de temps à autre, il faut reconnaître qu'ils n'ont pas beaucoup de vannes à faire sur NICO, étant donné que cette première incursion cinématographique de Steven est tout à fait honorable !

Phil & Jake are joined by dear old pal Chon Travis (from Love Equals Death) to rank cops, strip clubs that serve food, and the activity known as forest bathing on the List of Every Damn Thing.Find Chon on Instagram (@therealchontravis) and Facebook (chon.travis), and check out his band Love Equals Death (follow that link to find out their show dates)!If you have something to add to the list, email it to email@example.com (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: The Cops television show was a reality TV show in which a camera crew followed police around. The police departments got final approval of what was included in the show but it was educational to see what police thought made them look good. District Attorneys are adjacent to cops, but aren't exactly cops. Training Day is a movie about Denzel Washington as a bad cop. Columbo is TV good cop who is completely non-violent and walks around being an unassuming disheveled genius and catching rich people who do murders. Lethal Weapon is a movie about two cops, one of whom is a "Lethal Weapon" because he's suicidal. Die Hard is a movie about an off-duty cop and an on-duty cop (who shot a child while on duty) learning to trust each other. Beverly Hills Cop a movie about a cop from Detroit who goes to Beverly Hills and puts a banana in the tailpipe of cops there. Movie cops are always good or at least necessary. England is a country where cops don't carry guns. We discuss gun ownership. In the USA, 3 in 10 adults say they own a gun. It's something like 40% of men and 20% of women. RoboCop is another movie about cops in which the police force has been privatized. It's fantastic and Ronny Cox from Beverly Hills Cop is fantastic in it as Dick Jones. The Pinkertons were founded as a sort of private police force to crush labor. Rod Lavers shoes are Adidas sneakers named for the great Australian tennis star Rodney Laver. The Australian Open is played in an arena named for him as well. They're fantastic shoes but the best ones are white and it's hard to keep them clean. Firefighters are people who fight fire. When Phil imagined a fire that hated firefighters he was thinking of a little stinker like this guy. Clowns are people trying to make other people laugh. Commandos are special military units. Theodore Roosevelt was a US President and an extremely colorful character who's personally responsible for a lot of death and pain. The Last Starfighter was a nice little movie that's somehow never been remade. It's about a kid in a trailer park who, by virtue of being good at video games, gets recruited into an interstellar war. Howard the Duck is a movie about a duck who falls in love with Lea Thompson. Capitalism is the system we live in that makes ethical consumption impossible. Middle school is a necessary evil, a place to put young teens. Gambit is a fictional character, a superhero and member of the X-men. He wears a long trench coat and a weird thing on his head. Hoarders is a TV show in which the pain and mental illness of real people is mined for cheap thrills. Steven Seagal is a movie star who's been credibly accused of sexual assault and has incredibly accused himself of being a yogi, a holy man, a secret agent, a Navy SEAL & a martial arts master. The British Royal Family are pretty bad. Jon Voigt had been really good in a lot of films. He's as low as he is almost entirely because he said some stuff Phil & Jake didn't agree with. Phil even liked his accent in Anaconda. Jenny McCarthy is pretty low on the list because she has some trash opinions. 48 Hrs. was followed by a sequel, Another 48 Hours. The second sequel, 127 Hours, is a big departure for the franchise. Flashdance is probably underrated by us. Karina Longworth went into why in a recent episode of You Must Remember This.

It's hilarity on the high seas this week, as Cooper and Nolan are covering a true early 90s sensation - UNDER SIEGE! Yes, it was undeniably a massive hit when it came out. But as the guys will tell you, with each passing year Steven Seagal's one-time movie star status becomes harder and harder to understand. Is he the world's worst (successful) action hero? Maybe, but that doesn't stop this from being a thoroughly entertaining movie - one that features C-level acting, ridiculous deaths, and the unforgettable sight of Gary Busey in drag. There's plenty more worth talking about so prepare to come aboard; this episode (featuring a beer from Stonehooker Brewing Company) is one you'll definitely want to set sail with.
"You guys think you're above the law... well you ain't above mine!" This week the boys cover the only Steven Seagal film that came out in the 80's which happens to be Nico: Above the Law. Will they be upset that this is the only one that they are able to cover or will they see it as a blessing? There is only one way to find out. So, grab yourself a drink and settle down as the boys journey back to 1988 to talk about Nico: Above the Law, talk about the man behind the character and of course they finish it all off with a quiz!

Mark and John Leavengood (@MFFHorrorCorner on Twitter) discuss the 1996 action film Executive Decision. Directed by Stuart Baird, and starring Kurt Russell, Halle Berry, John Leguizamo, Steven Seagal, and a straw, the movie focuses on what happens when terrorists are forced to deal with Kurt Russell (Russell wins). In this episode, they talk about lucky straws, landing planes, and Oliver Platt. Enjoy!
There is unquestionably too much conflict and violence in this world. And as much as we hate to add to it, we feel we must now take the battle to the podcast's greatest enemy. No, it is not PG films, or PC Culture, or Forrest Gump, musicals or Blumhouse. It is not even Billy Dunham of We Watched a Thing fame - though after the way he flogged us in the recent vote, he may yet get there! No, the greatest enemy of The Countdown: Movie and TV Reviews is indisputably Steven Seagal. An awful human being who has allegedly lied his way through a career in Hollywood and allegedly done terrible things to many women along the way. So, here, now, we declare war on Seagal and will fight this war by taking down one terrible film of his at a time. We're starting with Sniper: Special Ops from 2016 - a supposed war film in which Seagal barely gets off his butt through the entire run time. Join us as we have too much fun skewering this film and most especially its "star" ... as The Countdown continues. Check out the show's first draft of a website for your one-stop shop for all things related to The Countdown.

Phil & Jake rank the funny-pages sensation Garfield, the proposed policy of student loan forgiveness, and the word “y'all” on the List of Every Damn Thing.VOTE HERE to help decide which topic we're going to re-rank on an upcoming episode.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: There's an infamous strip where Jon Arbunkle drinks dog semen. For the record, Jim Davis denied that's what was going on. Discussion of portrayals of cats in popular culture leads to some talk about Tom and Jerry and much talk about Heathcliff (the Original Orange Cat). Phil was wrong about the name of the Garfield convention, it's called the Garfield Gathering. It should be called The Garfering. The next one is May 20th, 2022 in Warwick, Rhode Island. They don't happen every year so don't miss your chance. Garfield Minus Garfield were some edits people made in which Garfield was removed. Phil mentions the very grounded and realistic Garfield without his thought balloons. Beetle Bailey is singled out by Phil as a good gag strip Olivia James took over drawing the comic strip Nancy a few years ago and it's been a breath of fresh air. The old Ernie Bushmiller strips are extremely good also. Garfield: His 9 Lives was a very strange Garfield project in the 80s. When talking about historical tax jubilees, Phil didn't really understand the mechanics too well but in Leviticus, God tells the Hebrews to forgive debts and free slaves every 50 years. It's unclear how this worked in practice. The idea wasn't unique to Hebrews, there are also records of jubilee proclamations in Babylon & Egypt.

Phil & Jake are joined by returning friend (and author) Eirinie Carson to rank the British Pop group Spice Girls, the outfits that the British call shell suits, and British food on the List of Every Damn Thing.Follow Eirinie on Instagram (@eirinieeee) and Twitter (@Eirineee), and read her columns on Mother Mag. Her upcoming book The Dead Are Gods will be published by Melville House. 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: The Spice Girls are, of course: Victoria Adams aka Victoria Beckham aka Posh Spice, Geri Halliwell aka Ginger Spice, Melanie C aka Sporty Spice, Mel B aka Scary Spice and Emma Bunton aka Baby Spice. Was there a sixth Spice Girl? Kind of. Michelle Stephenson was briefly part of the group that would go on to become the Spice Girls. At the time of this writing, we can't provide a link to Lady Camden from Ru Paul's Drag Race because it would risk spoiling the season finale for ourselves. Lucy Pinder is, as Wikipedia tells us, a British actress, TV personality and former glamour model. Shes also joins Eirinie for going on "holiday" (aka vacation). Phil at some point got it into his head that she was a right-wing ideologue and it broke the spell she had over him. It's probably for the best, even if it wasn't true! We talk about the Spice Girls songs “Wannabe” and “2 Become 1”. The video featuring them in leather outfits is for the song "Say You'll Be There". 2 Live Crew are filthy Miami rappers who legally laid the foundation for all filthy rappers that followed. Mogul did an excellent series about them. We get into a little Chubby Checker discussion, including his songs “The Twist” and “Let's Twist Again”. Phil tells us about Don't Knock the Twist , is a movie that features Checker with a lot of associated acts including Dee Dee Sharp, who sings Mashed Potato time, one of Phil's favorites. Phil likes anything where the song tells you "It's the latest" or "it's the greatest" and Mashed Potato time does both. Robbie Williams is the cheeky chappie from Stoke. Harry Styles is Hazza? Dolly Parton is the Backwoods Barbie. Hank Williams is the Hillbilly Shakespeare. Phil mentions the 2013 Morgan Spurlock 3-D documentary about One Direction, This Is Us but then gets confused as to whether it exists or not. It does. Phil mentions the youtube video "A Scouser Tries The Wigan Kebab and Smack Barm Pea Wet" in which a guy from Liverpool travels 17 miles to Wigan to enjoy Smack Barm Pea Wet which is a roll with a potato that's been batter dipped and deep fried, served with the liquid that peas sit in. Turkey Twizzlers were a UK meat product that used to be served to children at schools until celebrity chef Jamie Olive raised a fuss about them. Bovril is a beef broth concentrate, formerly known as Johnston's Fluid Beef. Phil remembers a guy saying it's served hot in a disposable cup. Kit-Kat is a candy that originates in England but really hit its stride in Japan where they make many variant flavors and generally appreciate the brand. Lucozade is a sports drink, roughly akin to Gatorade that was originally sold at pharmacies. Kebab stands are places where you can buy kebabs. Phil said we don't really have them in America but it's not really true. In his old neighborhood in Queens they were all over. Phil mentions a shocking ad for breakfast in a can he saw in a lad mag. He was unable to find images because when people are preserving and scanning lad mags, their priority is the photos of Lucy Pinder or Lucy Collett and then when that's done they'll eventually get around to the horrifying pictures of canned sausage and eggs. The product was probably Hunger Breaks' All Day Breakfast. ALSO DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE:fishing * Spice World * Destiny's Child * TLC * Jessica Rabbit * K-Pop * girl power * British politics * Margaret Thatcher * Britney Spears * Flat-Earthers * British Imperialism * spices * Simon Cowell * volcanoes * pickles * backpacking * “I'm Scum” by Idles * tracksuits * Tommy Bahama shirts * zipper jeans worn with no underwear * no-show socks * commandos * fast fashion * plastic straws * chip shop chips * English breakfast * bangers & mash * toad in the hole * bubble & squeak * haggis * Irn-Bru * burritos * pieBelow are the Top Ten and Bottom Top items on List of Every Damn Thing as of this episode (for the complete up-to-date list, go here).TOP TEN: Dolly Parton - person interspecies animal friends - idea sex - idea bicycles - tool coffee - beverage Clement Street in San Francisco - location Prince - person It's-It - food Doctor Doom - fictional character Cher - person BOTTOM TEN:277.

In this episode, Jeremy and co-host Andrew discuss the question Where Have All the Heroes Gone? Where Have All the Heroes Gone - Episode 705 The 1980's is the golden age of Martial Arts culture. There were all sorts of shows such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Karate Kid, and tons of movies. These movies produced stars that became our Martial Arts heroes. They could be Jean Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal, Jackie Chan, and many others. We've also seen the rise of Bill Wallace, Joe Louis, and other martial arts fighters. In this episode, Jeremy and co-host Andrew discuss the question Where Have All the Heroes Gone? After listening to the episode, it would be exciting for us to know your thoughts about it.

Countdown #369 This week the boys tackle the best of Disney Studio's more adult production arm, Touchstone Pictures. Having been all but shut down in the early 2010s, this is a bit of a trip down Nostalgia Lane for both Paul and Wayne, as they relive the glory days of the action heavy '90s, throw in some solid comedies from a tad earlier, and even get a bit mysterious and spooky in the 2000s. But wait, there's more! Paul is having to give away all of his DVDs and CDs, while Wayne is aghast at the latest piece of trivia regarding the show's mortal enemy, Steven Seagal. Yet more bang for your buck, as The Countdown continues! Check out the show's first draft of a website for your one-stop shop for all things related to The Countdown.

Phil & Jake are joined by friend-of-the-pod Micah to rank the reality TV show Hoarders, the craft beer style known as IPA, and the activity of backpacking 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: The Collyer Brothers were famous hoarders who died in the 1940s. There was a musical made about their lives. Aida is a Verdi opera, first performed in Cairo in 1871. Of course Phil pronounced it wrong. What did you expect?! During the episode Jake drinks a Picnic Lightning by Brouwerij West. It's a top-notch Hazy IPA. Shop ‘n' Wash was a laundromat & convenience store in Ukiah, CA. It's name is pure description, zero wordplay. Phil feels that laundromats should have some wordplay in their names eg "Get the Funk Out" "Escamoles" or "Mexican caviar" are ant eggs eaten as food by adventurous eaters like Micah. Phil referred to Shackleton's Endurance as Sir Edmund Hillary going to the North Pole in the Perseverance. The wreck of Endurance was just discovered in March of 2022! "The Ride" by David Allan Coe is a 1983 country song about an encounter with the ghost of Hank Williams while hitchhiking from Montgomery, AL to Nashville, TN. Phil mentions Plagues and Pleasures on The Salton Sea, a documentary about the area. It's a very strange place both culturally and geologically.

Sammy Gravano tells a story he heard from some FBI agents about how Steven Seagal cried like a baby and wanted to be hugged after he testified. Here is the whole story about why Seagal... The post Did the Mob Really Make Steven Seagal Cry? appeared first on Gangland Wire.
O'Neill opens the show with a few tidbits from a recent show he did in Venice, and Aaron hits the guys with his signature bit. He follows-up with a story from a recent show at the Comedy Store. After that, we get into the Netflix documentary series, Bad Vegan. We also discuss a recent youtube video where two brothers spend a day with Steven Seagal and even get to train with the "great master". As per usual, Steve drops some SERIOUS wisdom and that can't be missed. There's also some softball convo with Aaron (he's a manager of two teams!). We get into some stories that went down at the 50th anniversary of the Comedy Store shindig. And that'll do it for another edition of the Danish and O'Neill podcast. Thanks, folks!

Lighting (episode) strikes again as Phil & Jake rank The Twilight Zone media franchise, plastic straws, cochlear implants, mocha lattes, ants, belly button lint, hitting rock bottom and former U.S. President Barack Obama 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: We mentioned several episodes of the original Twilight Zone TV series, such as It's a Good Life and Mirror Image. We didn't mention After Hours which is fantastic. The Twilight Zone 80s reboot has one really good episode "Button, Button" which we think was made into a movie. The way it works is a guy gives you a button to keep for a month and if you press the button you get a million dollars. The Twilight Zone Jordan Peele reboot was OK but too long. The right amount of time for something like this is under 30 minutes. Here's some of the Twilight Zone episode with Buster Keaton. There's a lot of jokes about the differences between the 1890s and the 1960s that don't really hit in 2022. William Shatner bugs out in a Twilight Zone episode. A couple decades later, John Lithgow bugs out in a reboot of it from The Twilight Zone: The Movie. “You know, for kids” is one of our favorite things. Sound of Metal is a great movie about deafness. You should watch it. We don't mention it in the episode, but Coda is also a great movie about deafness (and especially deafness as culture). You should watch it too. Cyborgs is short for "cybernetic organism". Phil has a very loose definition of cyborgs that his family doesn't agree with. Phil claims that not only is someone with a pacemaker a cyborg but also someone with glasses, a cell phone or shoes. Phil claimed that The Ants won E.O. Wilson the Pulitzer prize but he was actually thinking of Tales from the Ant World. Leiningen and the Ants is a 1938 short story you probably remember from school here's the full text but, I hasten to add, it's of (looks left and right) dubious legality. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a former wrestler and current movie star, his second most famous move was the Rock Bottom. Here are ten examples of him performing the move. Phil had it confused with the People's Elbow, which goes off the turnbuckles. The Rock Bottom is what's called a "side slam". Here's the Between Two Ferns with Obama.

Drew and Badway are talking Seagal behind the scenes tantrums (of course), the underrated Tom Arnold, waterbeds in houseboats, the physics of shooting a bullet downward vs upward, and Michael Jai White's undersized skin for his ripped bod. Finally, the guys stumble upon the perfect plan to both get crooked cops rich AND get the drugs off of the streets. --- Our other Steven Seagal Episodes: Out for Justice (EP 86) Hard to Kill (EP 53) Marked for Death (EP 33) Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (EP 10) Subscribe & Follow Us: Spotify Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts Twitter Facebook Instagram YouTube We'll see you again on Thursday, April 28th.
Don't you just hate it when irrelevant celebrities try to preach about their political views?!? Well, a certain action star, and legalized Russian citizen, just took it to a whole nother level! Chris shares his thoughts on actor Steven Seagal's comments, praising Russian President Vladimir Putin and his leadership.

Steven Seagal gets sole writing credit and tracks down a serial killer in Kill Switch! It may be the most unpleasant movie James and Dylan have had to watch. But can a shocking twist ending reverse everything they thought they knew? Maybe there's a game at the end. We don't know! We recorded this a long time ago, and if you think we're listening to these episodes to help write the descriptions you clearly haven't heard our show before.
An ex-Navy Seal turned cook is the only person who can stop a group of terrorists when they seize control of a U.S. battleship. Steven Seagal, Gary Busey, and Tommy Lee Jones star in Under Siege. We also review the (INfamous?) action movie trailer we created 10 years ago as a bunch of teachers with too much time on our hands. It's confusing without the visuals, so the audio is edited out of this episode. You can see the full video here: The Band Director (2012 Trailer) Trailer:
Before famed musician Steven Seagal committed his musical genius upon the world, you may be surprised to learn that he also was an actor in action films like Under Siege, Hard To Kill, Above The Law, and On Deadly Ground. You may also learn that he was formerly a Navy SEAL, a CIA agent, and an Aikido master. (You will likely know this because he's made mention of it any and all chances he gets.)It's shocking, but all true! Before the subject of reality TV show Steven Seagal: Lawman decided he had blues he needed to let free, he had a long and storied career in direct-to-home-video show business, but thank goodness he settled into music. Otherwise we might have been denied his opus, 2005's Songs From The Crystal Cave. A mish-mash of middling white guy blues, confusing spiritual themes, and some of the clumsiest takes on world fusion you may ever hear in your life.On this episode of Jukebox Zeroes, Lilz and Pat are joined by Mario Boiardi of Horsehands and The Band Dennis for a deep dive into the dojo, and a tortured listening of Songs From The Crystal Cave in its entirety.#WeAreNormalNow#LookIntoMyEyes
The government finds out that Steven Seagal and Peter Gotti have been having some conversations, so Steven gets asked to testify in court. It wasn't until after a good cry and a couple of hugs that Steven could even take the stand.
In a World…where good cops may find themselves on their own…Lance Hurricane is a good cop, a good husband, and a good man. When he finds himself in the middle of a giant plot to corrupt the nation's politicians, he must use his mastery of the martial art, “Octopus Fu,” to stop the plot, even if it drives him…Near to Exhaustion! This episode features the improv comedy games Prologue in a Minute, Two-Word Typewriter, Ding, Gibberish Switch, and Cutting Room. In this episode, we pay homage to a genre that we love, but that doesn't really qualify as “good cinema.” But darn it, they are fun movies! And the genre is of course, classic Steven Seagal movies, specifically from his early days. His first four movies, where his movie titles all had three words. So much fun, so much fighting, so many bad one-liners, and so much terrible acting! Hopefully we did the genre justice, or else Seagal may come find us… Links Steven Seagal on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Seagal Hard to Kill on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_to_Kill Out for Justice: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out_for_Justice Time Codes Segment 1 - Discussion the Genre Tropes: 05:56 Segment 2 - Creating the Movie Outline: 16:25 Segment 3 - Picking the Improv Comedy Games: 20:15 Start of show: 24:08 Improv Game - Prologue in a Minute: 26:10 Improv Game - Two-Word Typewriter: 28:30 Improv Game - Ding: 37:17 Improv Game - Gibberish Switch: 46:40 Improv Game - Cutting Room: 55:58 End of show, into announcements: 1:08:36 More Information About the Show, Mike, and Avish Subscribe to the podcast: http://AvishAndMike.com/Subscribe/ Our Website: www.AvishAndMike.com Our Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/143183833647812 Avish's site: www.AvishParashar.com Mike's site: www.MikeWorthMusic.com/ Transcription of the “Discussing the Genre Tropes” Segment (Unedited and Un-Cleaned up) Avish Parashar: Alright, we are now going to spend a few minutes talking about the genre our experience with this kind of genre and i'm. Avish Parashar: Also, getting into some of the clubs and commonalities and boy, there are some cliches in this sort of thing, yes, I thought I set a timer here it's gonna quack like a duck when it's done so Mike let's talk Steven seagal you and I kind of. Avish Parashar: enjoyed and bonded over the years and our younger days were creating the martial arts regularly and watching this kind of nonsense. Michael Worth: Oh yeah believing it actually was like functional martial arts and actually worked right. Michael Worth: Alright, so how specific are we getting are we getting Steven seagal specific or just the general 80s like. Avish Parashar: Probably the more Steven seagal specific at least right now I mean we don't have to jump into discussing the tropes but just kind of. Avish Parashar: You know. Avish Parashar: Like your thoughts on the Steven seagal genre in July. Michael Worth: 1 of all first of all there's something gloriously nostalgic about this, because this this film, you know you gotta think when it came out in the 80s, it was done for the low budget like let's just get butts in the seats, and so the. Michael Worth: The focus is on basically badass fight scenes and, most notably segall just like being completely invincible and he's never in any trouble like he just he goes he waits through the plebes he went to the lieutenant's any ways to the chief bad guy. Avish Parashar: yeah it's ridiculous is that even when he fights the big bad guy he. Avish Parashar: Barely gets touched. Michael Worth: yeah I think the worst seattle's yet he got stabbed once by Tommy Lee Jones in under siege during the call a knife fight. Avish Parashar: yeah. Avish Parashar: And even though he looked so yeah this era where they it was an era before again, you know we recently recorded are taken episode, where it was like Liam neeson. Avish Parashar: And we talked on that one about somewhere along the way they realize you get a good actor interaction movie it kind of elevates it. Avish Parashar: This is from that era were all they were looking for someone who had action skill so yeah van damme will have like some martial arts training was like a dancer could you great body busy. Avish Parashar: You have speak they go yeah Jeff speakman. Avish Parashar: You got um, then you got say girl who was like a legitimate like whatever seventh degree a keto yeah no. Avish Parashar: No real acting talent. Avish Parashar: So i'm sure he would digress. Avish Parashar: He definitely disagree. Michael Worth: Oh yes, let's take all could do no wrong and to god's world seagal is the most cigar you can never say go. Avish Parashar: Oh yeah and even read stories like he's like one of the most. Avish Parashar: hated guests outside of that live like when you talk about the cat stories like they talk like their worst guests he's like because he's like an attitude was like almost violent and just like arrogant. Michael Worth: He also, I believe, had a big REP in Hollywood for like injuring a stuntman all the time because because you know he basically like. Michael Worth: Like did the stunts like he was actually trying to do it, you know and like you do, like some of the dogs in the webinar because it's almost like most things. Michael Worth: I don't think they're very practical, but if you're letting the dude get to your neck with that, like forearm strike and then he frickin does it. Avish Parashar: like this yeah they're not I mean you know they're not like street fighting practical they'll work if you can lot you know it's not a matter of. Avish Parashar: Like they're legitimate techniques that are very difficult to land in combat but the techniques themselves are like legitimate and that they'll work like to bend someone's risk that way they're going to flip over in a circle yeah. Michael Worth: funny enough i'm going to go a little diatribe here a red because i've been training Brazilian Jiu jitsu and what all the upper belts are starting to train now. Michael Worth: Our wrist locks but they're coming out of grappling so you're already kind of tangled up in the clothes, but these guys have been landing. Michael Worth: Whatever the kota guys share they've been landing enough people but it's in a grappling contest and they all say the same thing, but the only reason I can get away with this is that you and I already touching each other and there's no punching. Avish Parashar: bag yeah yeah it's not yeah exactly it's not like grabbing some of this out of the air. Avish Parashar: But you know we also you know we watch movies about killer robots and space aliens and giant lizard so like I. Avish Parashar: I love a like this, I love to see what I got fight scenes because they're so cool looking in there, so fluid and. Michael Worth: Well, that that's the thing about. Michael Worth: describing these fight scenes and Erica of the game we're going to do, because the the the cigar stuff since this new striking it's not like the bourne identity was like jerky camera back it's like this really cool stuff we're. Michael Worth: Throwing a baseball BAT and to go like step to the side and throw the guy through a plate glass window, so the fight scenes of segall are super exciting and dramatic and everyone's getting thrown into objects and thrown into like you know storeroom, as you know, items in the store way. Avish Parashar: That is also why they're so short, though, because, like. Avish Parashar: there's no punching and kicking right so like in a normal a fight scene, you know Bruce Lee van damme Jackie Chan. Avish Parashar: they're punching each other and they get hit like Oh, they come back and they fight they hit the other guy that Oh, they come back and they get hurt a little like, if you want really watch the same movie, especially with the henchmen it's like one move for enjoyment. Avish Parashar: enjoyment attacks him. Avish Parashar: He does the you know i'm gonna knock the elbow down and do the rich hand strike across your throat. Avish Parashar: yeah that guy's done next I punches of all i'm going to sidestep grab your risk autograph reverse it up you're done. Michael Worth: yeah. Avish Parashar: It just one hit it's like that's me he just like. Michael Worth: Yes, what i'm gonna do a sacrifice, if not he, like hip. Michael Worth: throw like boom he's done right so so it's fun it's beautiful to watch but it's a really fast, which also brings up the whole like seagal just can kind of wade through people. Michael Worth: um The second thing that I love about the signal is he's unabashedly like wants to be like the every man every in every movie he's like a family man he's an Italian he's like Roman Catholic like he's just like he's got his niche he's just. Avish Parashar: Basically, got to be himself, because he can't act so. Michael Worth: Basically he's himself he's he's his own perfect version of himself right like you know. Michael Worth: yeah good father, a good husband like, although the cost of the force love him, it is like yeah that's that's art not imitating life. Avish Parashar: yeah he stands up to power, he does what's right like regardless yeah. Michael Worth: Speaking of power it's it's so the plots of these are also so gloriously paper thin that's so much fun to check out because that's part of the charm of this stuff it's like you just want a bunch of bad guys and you want a lone wolf to just take them down so they're just like. Avish Parashar: Oh yeah I mean we're talking about like the cliche is and stuff you know you've got. Avish Parashar: yeah he's almost always rogue in some way you know. Avish Parashar: People in charge are corrupt or they're not corrupt, but whatever he's been told to like lay off. Michael Worth: Your time because the bad guys have too much political power. Avish Parashar: yeah kind of thing yeah. Avish Parashar: And that's also why he doesn't have backup so he's got to go in solo. Avish Parashar: You can't trust anyone don't get help them. Michael Worth: To, of course, because you say go right, you know so. Avish Parashar: yeah and. Michael Worth: um yeah and I think that the bad guys are just like good old fashioned bad guys that you love to hate they're always dealing drugs or like you know i'm in hard to kill a they're doing. Avish Parashar: Articles drugs I think right, it was drug dealers know marked for death was drug dealers hard to kill with the politician. Avish Parashar: yeah yeah corrupt politician oh. Michael Worth: Right, but he was killing politicians, he get his opium deal to remember the first met in the CIA in in Vietnam. Avish Parashar: That was above the law. Avish Parashar: Yes. Michael Worth: wow so much diversity in this stuff. Avish Parashar: yeah there's always a rich powerful person who's corrupting the system. Avish Parashar: You know, for drugs or political power money or all of that. Avish Parashar: It gets personal somehow you know either his family's killed like in hard to kill or attacked. Avish Parashar: You know, once the bad guys realized he's trouble they kind of go after him and or is COP friends are killed so it gets personal. Michael Worth: So and, by the way, that's The other thing is like right before we get started into the X three x four right before the final assault usually. Michael Worth: He gets a couple of his buddies killed like they get they get targeted either they are they buy him time to get away and they die or they just get targeted by the bad guy and that's kind of the what pushes them over the edge, you know because I don't. Michael Worth: yeah I don't only in hard to kill is the wife killed and that's because, in the very beginning kind of sets up the plot Sharon stone above the law, can you believe that is not killed. Michael Worth: The Italian girl in out for justice is not killed and I kept my room marked for death through the wife is but no. Avish Parashar: yeah yeah so it's easy but yeah i've had some was targeted more often right the COP buddies are. Avish Parashar: are taken out. Michael Worth: yeah yeah righteous, and I mean honestly what makes the film great and let's talk about dialogue. Avish Parashar: I was about to say there's some. Avish Parashar: horrible dialogue and some terrible like one liner. Michael Worth: But the dialogues usually like the bad dialogue it's usually say call you know it's, like the other actors actually have legit dialogue, I don't know what it is. Avish Parashar: equal quality it's just the other actors are actual actors, so they can make it sound semi decent. Avish Parashar: Plus they're trying to give him, like the shorts neck or one liners. Avish Parashar: yeah yeah. Michael Worth: Which failed utterly I mean my God let's let's let's let's put up some of these gems where it's like yeah i'll take you to the bank body bank with. Avish Parashar: bank. Michael Worth: Of the blood banks over the place. Michael Worth: Although it has my favorite like I just killed lieutenant line where he takes the pool cuny staff that throw that is that's killing my wife Fuck you and die. Avish Parashar: yeah I do like that live. Michael Worth: that's the one good one, but I can't think of a single other mind that he said that's remotely interesting, so what is about these movies that make it so far, because he's a wouldn't actor, the plots. Avish Parashar: I thought you know they get to the point right the plot it's like. Avish Parashar: it's like cake right. Avish Parashar: it's like cake is nice but cake is really just a conveyance for frosting it's just the frosting delivery. Avish Parashar: that's that's kind of the same movie right like the plot the movie the acting. it's fine. Avish Parashar: You know, but it's really just conveyance device for sega fight scenes like that's all. Michael Worth: that's a good point yeah it is it delicious it's literally it's like why, why are they Why are these are crackers out because I want that pepperoni and that Brie. Avish Parashar: Cheese exactly I mean that's why like that's why I received was like a legitimate mainstream movie because. Avish Parashar: You got the single fight scenes but they actually managed to wrap it in a movie with a decently interesting plot, and you got you know Gary busey and Tommy Lee Jones I like real actors. Michael Worth: And I bought a call was not nearly as involved that with with the script I think the script was actually written by a couple of Hollywood guys would actually had a legit three act. Avish Parashar: structure so he. Michael Worth: keeps it all the hell out of the way you know, and the same thing with executive decision couple that with the fact that they figured out let's get rid of steak on the first five. Avish Parashar: that's true yeah they did they they asked him right in the beginning, so. Avish Parashar: All right, so that is just about our time is about to go off here. Avish Parashar: So that. Avish Parashar: I think we talked about the genre enough here. Transcription of the “Creating the Outline” Segment (Unedited and Un-Cleaned up) Avish Parashar: Creating the outline, we are going to spend five minutes coming up with a high level outline for this movie we're going to use a four act structure. Avish Parashar: And there's our starting point, we may veer from it, we may stick to it, who knows it's improvisation so we'll see alright, so there goes a timer alright, so what has to happen is this is really thin right it's like I said it's all the excuse of oh yeah act one we. Michael Worth: will establish the COP and he gets in his first small time fight scene. Avish Parashar: You know, like there's always like an opening little just to show that he's a badass. Michael Worth: yeah I can't wait for us to invent his martial arts could be absurd. Avish Parashar: Animal. Michael Worth: Animal and then act one um. Michael Worth: Well i'll say this, and tell me whether it's one or two he runs into his first encounter with So yes, he has a little scuffle, this is nothing new that's a couple people mugging an old lady pizza. Michael Worth: But then he runs it was first encounter with the larger crime Arc like again with drugs he he see some kids selling drugs he gets shot and he finds out that there's a new drug on the scene and that starts to tie into there's something big going on. Avish Parashar: So I don't know yeah I think I think act one usually ends with him stumbling onto the bigger thing like just like I said. Avish Parashar: Maybe on a small lower level like yeah the kids selling drugs or you know stopping some crime, but he gets involved in whatever and you know, for the purpose of our show that might be combined with the opening fight, you know the opening little fight maybe the one that kind of. Michael Worth: yeah yeah. Avish Parashar: Perfect next into the bigger world. Michael Worth: Sure sure. Avish Parashar: But he's asked yeah kind of where he he stumbles upon the bad guys bad guys kind of syndicate or plan. Michael Worth: Act two is him a teaming up with probably a couple of his buddy COPs to figure out who's doing what are learning about who the bad guy is a. Avish Parashar: So this they almost always so yeah This is where this is the they're trying to figure things out and there's almost always a scene, where they go to some like. Avish Parashar: gang hide out or dive bar some alleyway though the one biker gang always hangs out and he just wants to get some information, but of course there's a fight. Michael Worth: So if I see right. Michael Worth: So we've seen that right that gets the attention of the head bad guy that this that that are RSA golf guys is on to them, and that leads to act three, which is they've tried to kill segall is. Michael Worth: This the show is going to be today they try to kill cigar that these two buddies are killed his force pulls them off the thing, and he goes rogue and that leads into act for me this is literally how easy, this is going to be right. Avish Parashar: yeah I would say yeah then he goes rogue. Avish Parashar: And then, and then usually there's some oftentimes there's some additional danger. Avish Parashar: that's introduced right the end of act three like his family's in jeopardy, or you find out what the big plan is like Oh, you know this guy is gonna blow up this building on this day or you know the big deal going down. Michael Worth: yeah yeah exactly so. Avish Parashar: plan or personal issue I know. Michael Worth: I had a couple something really funny and silly and then act for us literally him just going to the head villains um. Michael Worth: You know, he does one or one or both things he had to go ahead villains layer and kills him and also tenants he goes and destroys the crime scene like it destroys the drunk supply quite as both. Avish Parashar: yeah stop the crime and fights a bad guy and beats. Michael Worth: and kills everybody and and barely takes a wound. Avish Parashar: Barely takes it kills everyone. Michael Worth: Your meters can't see this but i'm literally showing my sketch pad. Avish Parashar: Right. Avish Parashar: There you go that's about it so. Avish Parashar: All right. Avish Parashar: So that we finished we'd like. Avish Parashar: got their outlining phase ever. Michael Worth: Good what else isn't right let's get to it right oh.

Phil, Jake & Jason welcome Matt Hock back to the pod to rank Friday (the day of the week), the 90s movie Friday, and the song “Friday” by Rebecca Black on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you haven't already, check out Matt's band! You can get Space Cadet's record “Lion On A Leash” on Wiretap Records, listen to them on Spotify, and follow them on Instagram (@space_cadet_band).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: We get into some Bob's Burgers-style punny business right away, but don't worry it's brief. For the second episode in a row, Gingerdead Man (starring Gary Busey) finds its way into our conversation. “Roadie Friday” is the day before the day off on tour. Friday is a state of mind. TGI Fridays was a really revolutionary idea when it first came about. The premise was that it was a bar that women would feel comfortable visiting. The bar in the movie Cocktail where Tom Cruise recites poetry is based on TGI Fridays. Freaky Fridays are when you switch bodies with your parent. Freya is the mother of Thor and Friday is named for her the way Thursday is named for him. Here's DJ Pooh running and crying. Def Comedy Jam was a show on HBO where urban comedians could perform. The most famous set ever was probably Bernie Mac's first appearance but Chris Tucker's was really good too. Phil was wrong here, there is no "other Chris Tucker". Deebo Samuel plays football for the San Francisco 49ers. Deebo is not his legal name but he confirms that it came from the movie Friday. We note how great Friday's soundtrack is, with songs like “Keep Their Heads Ringin” by Dr. Dre, “Friday” by Ice Cube & “Hoochie Mama” by 2 Live Crew. Jake compares Friday to two of his favorite books Cannery Row & Tortilla Flat (both by John Steinbeck). He also compares it to his new favorite TV show to insist everyone watch: Blindspotting (it's on Starz so you'll have to get a promotional subscription and binge the show within a month). Other songs discussed include “Little Saint Nick” by The Beach Boys, “American Pie” by Don McLean & “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” by Dionne Warwick. Jason sincerely apologizes for unknowingly dead-naming Cara Cunningham. Here's the 2021 hyperpop remix of “Friday” featuring Big Freedia and others.

The 16:9 PODCAST IS SPONSORED BY SCREENFEED – DIGITAL SIGNAGE CONTENT Montreal's SACO Technologies doesn't have anywhere near the mindshare of the largest LED display manufacturers in the pro AV industry, but it's nonetheless the supplier behind some of the biggest and most interesting display jobs lighting up these days. That is SACO's LED light stick technology cladding the world's tallest building - the Burj Khalifa in Dubai - and turning it into a colossal media display that can do everything from mood lighting and still images to motion ads for movies, like this recent spot for the new Batman blockbuster. While the other major players in big direct view LED displays work with pro AV consultants and integrators, and media owners, SACO engages with architects and building engineers to fully integrate active, addressable LED lighting into the facades of buildings and, in some cases, the overall structure of the building. For example, the home grounds of the new MLS team in Cincinnati designed active, changeable lighting into the entire stadium exterior, as opposed to bolting a big conventional display to its side. That huge low rez LED display on the top of SoFi Stadium in LA - where the Super Bowl was just held - that's SACO, too. The back-story of SACO is super-interesting and super-different. The company's roots are in supplying the blinking indicator lights you'd see in old school control rooms, like the walls in power plants. Back in the mid-90s, one of SACO's founders wondered if the colored LEDs could be put together and controlled to create a video display. A small reference design proved the concept, and within a couple of years, SACO was providing a massive version as a digital backdrop for U2's PopMart tour. That led to more concert tours, and by the mid-2000s, the company was also a major player for large format stadium and arena displays. These days, much of SACO's work is custom and specialized, and not the kind of work suited to the more mainstream, high-volume LED guys. I had a really interesting chat about SACO with Co-CEO Jonathan Labbee. Subscribe to this podcast: iTunes * Google Play * RSS TRANSCRIPT Jonathan, thank you for joining me. Can you describe what SACO as a company does and how long has the company been at it? Jonathan Labbee: Yes, absolutely. SACO was founded 1987 by the Jalbout brothers, Fred and Bassam Jalbout, and originally started off as a company that specialized in nuclear controlled room equipment. So SACO actually stands for Systems Automation Control, a very far cry from what we're doing today, but essentially if you've watched a Steven Seagal movie and you see these big control room panels on these oil rigs and all that kind of stuff, that's the type of stuff that SACO used to do. And in those panels are a lot of little tiny blinking indicator lights, and some other control equipment that SACO used to manufacture, and eventually they started experimenting with LED technology, and one of the brothers, Bassam, came up with the idea of creating a display using these solid state lights. At the time it was only red and green and eventually was working with one of the premier LED manufacturers still to this day, and when they invented the blue LED, they provided that to the team back in Montreal, and essentially created the very first video display on earth. It was a small little sample. It was maybe like a one foot by two foot sample. It was quite small, but it was able to demonstrate the capabilities of putting up an image and eventually a moving image, and this caught the eye of certain advertising companies and more importantly at the time a rock band, and we got a challenge from the band U2 to create this 50 foot by 150 foot wide video stage, a backdrop to replace Sony jumbotron that they were planning on putting on PopMart. And we took up the challenge, designed and built this thing and deployed it with success on the PopMart tour, started in Las Vegas, and then we toured with U2, essentially showing off these new capabilities. This was in 1997. Wow. So that first reference design that you talked about, was that 97 or a little bit before then obviously? Jonathan Labbee: The reference design was in 93, that's when the blue LED was invented. We had, at that time, already created a red, green display as a prototype. But then eventually we did build a red, green and blue version. So an RGB version, a full color version and I think we met the band maybe like the end of 1994. That's quite a transition from doing a control room to working with Bono. Jonathan Labbee: It completely changed the company. At the time we called the technology, smart vision. We did a tour with success and picked up a bunch of other bands and then eventually started doing permanent installations, like the Baltimore Ravens stadium and Washington Arena and so on. And then if we fast forward a little bit, we end up in 1999 when we built the very first NASDAQ screen in Times Square. So the sort of curved one with the knockouts for all the windows, that's you guys? Jonathan Labbee: That's us, and that's actually a really interesting story. Already making a curve was going to be a big deal, no one had ever seen a curved video screen of that magnitude, and then we had gotten the project. It was a full display at the time, and then the client, NASDAQ came to us and told us that the main tenant in the building was no longer willing to have their windows covered. So we created his knockouts and everybody was worried about how it would look, I guess it would look odd with these holes in it. With a little bit of convincing, everybody went with it, and the very first piece of content that we put on there for testing was Pac-Man. Which makes sense, because it would work around the hole. Jonathan Labbee: Exactly. Interesting. So you started out doing, I guess, almost like mesh LED curtains, and then the NASDAQ's display was quasi conventional LED cabinets, although albeit a little bit curved and all that, and in the past seven years, really, all these other LED companies have come on the market with their own cabinets on all that and you guys haven't really stayed in the conventional LED cabinet business. You've gone in other directions, right? Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, that's correct. We still have some “standard” type products. Although they're really more there to support some of the iconic projects that we're doing, and some of the more complex projects that we're doing. So for example, if we have a client that wants to do this kind of nighttime identity thing on their building, that highlights the architecture, and so on, like some of the projects like FC Cincinnati, in some cases, they may require some video screens down at the bottom on the marquee or inside and stuff like that and so we do have offerings to be able to support them with it. So is a lot of what you do custom then? Jonathan Labbee: Yeah. I would say most of what we're doing today is highly customized, not full custom, but highly customized, and there's a difference there, in the sense that our product is really the technology itself and then how we package it is the customized portion of it for the client. A lot of the reason that you get attention, I gather at least, is that unlike the vast majority of the companies who are selling “conventional LED products”, they're working with AV integrators, whereas you guys, by the looks of it, at least tend to work with architects. Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, that's a very good observation. So our main drive is really with architects. We have seven architects on staff here at SACO. We have mechanical engineers, of course, electronics engineers, but also structural engineers. So when we go into a project and usually the earlier, the better, because we're able to detail down to the level of the building and at the same time, we're able to influence how things get integrated, because we know how we can make things. We're able to work with the architects to integrate the product in the building facade or wherever it's supposed to go where it looks integrated and not bolted on, and that subtle difference makes all the difference in the world. It also makes a difference in terms of the engineering, right? Because even though the individual light rods probably aren't all that heavy, if you have thousands of them, it adds weight to a building, right? Jonathan Labbee: It does, and so if we were to come on, say after a building's already up, we would normally be adding not just a product but we'll be adding, like the bracketing and whatever else that we're doing. If we're there early enough in the early stage, maybe the extrusion for the window will be designed differently to accommodate the product. So there's some savings in terms of weight and potential costs, but also the final look is very different. Going back in the past decade or so, you started to see signature buildings in a landscape that would be lit at night for different purposes. They might have a certain kind of baseline set of colors that they use. But if like right now there would be buildings that are in blue and yellow because of the situation Ukraine has. That seemed to be the way things were being done for quite some time now, but with the Burj in Dubai, that's more than just a sort of ambient lighting. It's a media facade. Was there a moment when it changed and you're able to do that or has that always been possible and it just hadn't been done? Jonathan Labbee: We've always been able to do that. I think that the market and the clients, as they evolve and they see things and they have ideas and then we start exploring ideas with the clients, then I think that's truly when things get revealed, right? So we may have the capability to do something, but then you also need to get the client that has a vision that allows that to happen. Okay. So with the Burj, the world's tallest building, at least I think it still is, but with that one, you've got your product on at least one side of the building. Is it just on the one side kind of facing the mall and all that, and that goes from top to bottom, was it built in or was it added after the fact? Jonathan Labbee: So this was added after the fact, and actually what happened there is that the client had tried something, they had acquired some products, I don't know exactly where and had put it up. So they had this idea of wanting to do this. I believe it was a DMX based system. It did what it was supposed to do, but the problem is that I don't believe that it lasted as long as they needed it to. So a year and a half in or something, we connected with them and then we designed for them a system that would fully integrate with the fin, we have these really beautiful stainless steel fins on the building. That's what gives it shine during the day. So we wanted to respect that, but it was also the perfect area to attach these things. So we designed this kind of fin, like a nose piece for the fin that integrated the product, all the cabling and everything, and then we installed that at the end of 2007. Okay. So with that building, as huge as it is, you can actually do a full motion ad, like the recent one for the new Batman movie from street level, all the way to the top, right? Jonathan Labbee: Oh, absolutely. Everything that we do is basically either a full video screen or a deconstructed video screen, and in the case of Burj Khalifa, it is what we would refer to as a deconstructed video screen. So it has a twenty five millimeter pixel on the height, but then a meter and a half on the width. So it goes in between the windows and obviously with distance and so on, your brain is able to put the image together. It's interesting, in the past four or five years with LED marketing, it's all been about finding pitch pixel pitch, and it's 0.9 versus 1.2, and oh my God, 1.2 is awful by comparison, and you're talking about a meter and a half pixel pitch. Jonathan Labbee: Yeah. Everything has to do with distance and contrast, at the end of the day it can be broken down as that. It's in the distance and contrast. So what's involved in putting up something like that? God knows, I wouldn't want to be one of the technicians who told me to go up to the 110th floor and go outside and put this on. Jonathan Labbee: It's a really interesting process and much like other projects that we've done, it was the first time that we were doing something. Like this and by like this, I mean, at that height with no cranes and difficult to access and so on, the building itself is almost a kilometer tall. Everything is done with rope access people. And then the other complexity that comes into play is time. So between when we got the contract and we turned the screen on, It was seven months. So that's not a lot of time to design a new product. We actually had to design a new product for this project, did the engineering, the testing validation, certifications. So essentially what we did is, we had our factory in Montreal. We design and manufacture everything in Montreal by the way, and then we replicated a portion of our factory in Dubai, and we did a lot of final assembly and insulation within the extrusion pieces and so on, and the cabling, everything we did there in Dubai. The client was very instrumental in helping us set up all of that capability there, and then we just staged everything everywhere that we could in every empty space of the building, and then started deploying these via rope access team, and obviously part of it is a hotel, part of it is are residences. So you are very limited in the amount of time that you can spend. At night, you can't be in front of the hotel portion, during the day, you can't be in front of the residences. So we needed to plan across a whole building how to get these things in place. And is it set up in such a way that if you're in one of these residences, you don't see the light emitting from these fins that it's just pointing out? Jonathan Labbee: Correct, so you have no idea if you're inside the residence that there's actually lighting on the building. Which is a problem for some of the media facades I've seen that are just mesh LEDs because you're now looking through this grid system to see outside. You've still got your view, but it's compromised. Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, exactly, and that's actually one of the reasons why the horizontal pixel pitch had to remain at one and a half meters was because we didn't want, nor our client, didn't want anything in front of the windows. These media facades on buildings seem to be a thing certainly in China, but I'm starting to wonder when we'll start to see more of them in North America. Are you seeing the demand there to do this? Jonathan Labbee: Yes, absolutely. Although things have shifted, I think that with the introduction of the Burj, FC Cincinnati, SoFi Stadium on the roof, I think clients and architects are realizing that a media facade doesn't need to be just a rectangular or square video that takes up all their front real estate. They're starting to look at it more as a way to enhance the architecture that can also do media, and being able to prove that you don't have to have the same pixel pitch on the vertical and horizontal. You can do different things and it just makes it more unique and interesting to the building while you're still communicating the message that you want to from the advertiser or from whatever you're trying to communicate. Is it your control system as well for the software that's driving it? Jonathan Labbee: So we do everything up to the video processor. So the video processor, what takes a signal and then we work with a variety of companies like Disguise or Seventh Sense depending on the type of project. But anything that has a very complex geometry, we usually work with this Disguise. Yeah, you're not going to get a setting out of the box for a client or a building. Jonathan Labbee: No, not all, however, our team does produce all of the 3d coordinates for the software to understand it. So you don't have to have a human sitting there trying to figure out the map, because we already have the map created with a tool set that allows us to take the map and turn it into the coordinates for the systems that we work with. So mapping a building is actually fairly simple, and if you were to change something or you had to adjust something in your final drawing sets, you can just re-upload that file to the server, and the server will change the pathways for the video image. image. Now, when you're working with a giant scale surface like that, because the pixels are a meter and a half apart, at least in that job, does that limit the amount of light that's coming out? One of the things I wonder about with city bylaws and all that is, if you tried to do something like this on a building in New York or Montreal, what would be the citizen reaction? Would they say, “We can't tolerate this. It's going to blind us. It's going to feel like a tanning salon in our house”? Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, actually a very valid point. We went through that exercise just recently with a client, and that really becomes more about being a responsible corporate citizen. That onus falls on the client, but also on us to provide the tool set to their client for that. But again, if you remember what I was talking about contrast earlier, if something's too bright anyway, then I'm sure you've driven on the highway and seen digital signs for where their brightness wasn't turned down at night and it hurts your eyes. So I bet you don't remember the ad that was on that screen because your brain was too busy hurting. So in any case, to be able to show off the very best of that building and what you're trying to show, you have to have the right level of contrast. So if it's very bright outside, obviously it could be just light pollution, then you'd want to pump up the power, but if you don't have a lot of competing lights, you would want to j, drop the power down and then the brightness. So we can do it in a few ways. Obviously we can set levels based on time of day and with light sensors and so on which we do for several clients, or there's just just bypass where the client can select it or at night it's just that level. The Burj is a special case, but if there were other tall buildings in major cities that wanted to do this sort of thing, would they be looking to do it as a media model or do they see it as a way to distinguish their building with ambient lighting that's interesting to look at? Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, that really depends on the client. I think that some clients go in with the idea of wanting to create a media building. So if you look at the Hard Rock hotel, for example, like the Guitar hotel in Hollywood, Florida, their intent was clear of what you want it to do. It is media focused from the very beginning. Some of our other clients, I'm thinking of one of the embassies that we did in New York, for example, originally started off as a way to highlight the building. So there was more kind of a highlight on the edge of the building. But when they saw us testing, they realized, wow, I think there's more capability here, and I think that each client goes through a level of evolution on how to utilize the product. And I guess there's a delicate balance that they have to reach as well that you were saying earlier, you can be good corporate citizens and do something visually interesting with your building, but then you can cross the line and start selling mortgage broker services Jonathan Labbee: You could do that or you could strobe and there's a lot of things that you could do that you wouldn't necessarily want to do and some of the clients, obviously we have some very sophisticated clients that have a media strategy for that, and they have a team, but some of the other clients just want to do something beautiful, and when that happens, we have a division inside of SACO called the Media Collective, with a Creative Director and so on, and we usually put together a base package for them, just to be able to kinda understand how to utilize your building. Is the Media Collective in-house designers, or is it a collective of people who have the skill sets and experience to work with your technology? Jonathan Labbee: So we have some animators in-house but the whole reason we have a media collective is really to build a collective of external firms that we work with because we actually get a lot of work through design firms. So we don't want to end up competing with them so if we do end up having a project that requires some content, Burj was a perfect example. In the beginning, we built a bunch of content for them. So we directed the whole thing, but we had, I think, six firms that worked with us to provide different flavors. When you have a specialized project, somebody like another Montreal company, Moment Factory might come to you guys and say, “Hey, we need to do something on this monumental surface. Can you help us?” Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, correct. Actually Moment Factory, there are several projects where we've collaborated together. One of them being the AT&T project in Texas. We have our product inside of the A looking thing. Yeah, that kind of a spherical walkway thing that kind of leads you to the building? That's a very cool project. So when you are working with these different companies, are they coming to you directly or does it tend to come through an architect? Jonathan Labbee: No, when we're working with these with design firms, they'll usually either contact us or again, vice versa, if we have a media request, we'll contact them. There are any number I would imagine of companies out there that have LED light sticks that can do kind of mood lighting for a building. Do you compete with them or their control systems really meant to like, change this block to blue and change this block to yellow so we can have the Ukrainian flag? Jonathan Labbee: I would say that in certain times, we'll see them on projects, but those companies are usually DMX based, whereas we're video based and there's a really big difference there in the overall approach and also in the ability to display color and bitrate and stuff like that. So just coming from a video background, the type of clients that usually seek us out, or that we seek out have a vision for media, not just for lighting. Do they also come to you because of the scale that you've done these ginormous projects? Jonathan Labbee: Absolutely, because you also have to be game to do this. These challenges are filled with unknowns, and I think that the team at SACO thrive on them. Yeah, I'm sure there are all kinds of companies who, if they were approached to do some of these large scale projects, they'd go, sure, and then they'd go back to the engineering team and look at each other and go, okay, now what? Jonathan Labbee: Yeah. We've had a few instances where, let's call them competitors, in certain spaces that got a project and had no idea how to do it and they came to us and we worked with them. It's a small industry, so we're friendly with everybody, You mentioned earlier the idea of shape and you worked with FC Cincinnati on this new MLS stadium, right? Could you describe that? Jonathan Labbee: The working part or the project part? The stadium is a curved kind of bowl thing, and the whole outside of it is a bit like the Bayern Munich stadium in that you could eliminate the whole thing. Jonathan Labbee: Yes, exactly. Here the architect is Populous, a company with whom we worked with in the past, and we have a very good working relationship there. So when they took over that project, I believe it was with a different architect prior, and they came up with this kind of vision of these angled fins where you could see through the building and so on, they created this very light structure which at night needed to be highlighted. So when they brought us on board to start taking a look at the designs and giving our ideas and stuff like that, obviously it made a lot of sense to highlight the edge of that. The product is very much recessed inside of the fin. So it's completely invisible during the day or when it's not on, and I guess there were several ideas there, but I guess one of the guiding principles there is that it needs to be integrated and needed to highlight the architecture at night and keep that sense of emotion like that whole stadium has this static motion to it. So based on that, we ended up designing a solution for it, and also created the base content for the client and it's been highly efficient for the client. Is it actually less costly to do it the way you're describing as opposed to doing like a full LED mesh curtain and all that, just because there's less hardware, fewer LED diodes and so on, or it does balance out because this is custom engineering? Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, I think I think maybe it balances out. It's probably overall it's maybe a little cheaper because you're integrating early but that only happens if you're integrating early, if you're retrofitting, it's usually it usually balances. But the big thing that it does though, is that it does become unique to that property. When you just start adding video screens, and again, I'm a big fan of video screens. That's what we do for a living. But video screens, like what we refer to as traditional video screens, have their place. But on a building, it just ends up looking like advertising, if you just put it up a building, right? So if you really want to enhance the building and kind of blend art and media, I think that's a highly effective way of getting your message across because then there's no mistake in if someone takes their Instagram shot or whatever, there's no mistake in where that is. And I'm sure that you spend the time with the clients, for them to understand, look, this is low resolution. This is in a lot of cases meant to be seen from a hundred meters away or further away. If you want to put pricing propositions on the screen, that's probably not going to work, but logos and things like that's going to work well. Jonathan Labbee: Yep. Exactly. And again and as you approach the building or as you approach a property or as you're walking through a property, your experience is going to change. So that video element will now become more of a lighting interesting kind of ambient element, but then you'll have something else in the Causeway or whatever with maybe that has a tighter pixel pitch or something to just continue that whole experience as you walk through the property. Do you strictly work with outdoor products or are you doing anything indoor? Jonathan Labbee: Oh no, we do lots of indoor stuff. Is that more conventional, like LED modules, cabinets, that sort of thing? Jonathan Labbee: Yes, actually, in its construction, I would say yes but in its deployment oftentimes it's different. We did this art piece, which is actually a media piece with Jenny Holzer, which sits inside of the Comcast headquarters in Philadelphia, and there are custom tiles that are 6.32 millimeter pixel pitch at the exact 8 inches wide, and they needed to fit in between these wood slabs on the ceiling and the entire ceiling has video strips going right through it, right through the escalator and everything. Oh, so is this tied in with the big LED wall it's already in the lobby there? Jonathan Labbee: The LED wall is in the other building. Gotcha. The other building is fantastic, what they've done there. Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, exactly. So we'll also deploy, like we have a project right now going on, I can't really say what it is yet, but it has a bunch of really high res stuff, and these kinds of monuments in a curved fashion, all interactive. So high res video screen type stuff that we do a lot, and we do a lot of touring also. All tier one, so the Paul McCartney's of the world and Lady Gaga's utilize a lot of SACO equipment on their tours. And these again, would be stuff that you can put up and take down pretty quickly. They're lightweight and there's a pastor, so you can see it and behind it, all that? Jonathan Labbee: Yeah, exactly. So what we do for touring is actually use our frames called Fast Frames and they're very fast to set up and rugged. And, in touring speed is extremely important because time is money there, as you're loading and unloading, others are waiting on you. So we came up with this system that's very fast. I'll give you an example. When we came up with this new product called the S series. One of our very first clients was Bruno Mars, and this is obviously through some partners, rental partners, and it was a 50 foot wide video screen by 20 feet tall and that took 13 minutes and 13 seconds to set up, from the carts to image on. We actually made t-shirts that said 13:13. Yeah. That's a good thing. Cause somebody's going to ask, what does that mean? And then you're immediately pitching, Jonathan Labbee: Well, exactly, and also touring does allow us to have a customer base there that is always hungry for the latest in things. Although we have more standard products there that can do their main elements, we'll build a lot of custom stuff for touring as well, and so on the Taylor Swift tour, for example, we had a bunch of 12 millimeters and some 9 millimeters, but because the thing went up like a half pipe in certain areas. We designed these custom triangular tiles to fill in the gap to provide a monolithic look and so on. So we have clients that are willing to try new things there, and then we take all of that knowledge and then we apply it to our more permanent projects afterwards. You're obviously pretty well known in the live events community and I guess in architectural design, not really in the digital signage or LED display community or at least the conventional side of that. Does that matter, or are you quite happy with just stealthily building up your business? Jonathan Labbee: Very good question. I would say that in the beginning more, more on like the 2000s stuff, we were doing a lot of arenas and stadiums, like the traditional center hongs or ribbon boards, we were heavily heavily involved there. But when so many companies came out with offerings, there were some differentiators of course, between what we offered and what other people offer, but the cost just kept getting driven down and down, and all of a sudden, you're now operating in a commodity based business. That's not where we necessarily like to be, we're innovators at heart, so we like to focus on areas where our talents can be fully exploited, and so as soon as you introduce a little bit of complexity and there's a lot of clients that want something complex and context could be something as simple as a curve, an angle, a shape, an installation, we ended up finding ourselves almost alone. Yeah. Interesting. I know there's a big project that you're not able to talk about yet but I'm sure maybe we'll get back together in a year or so when you're allowed to talk about this thing running and it's amazing, and unfortunately we can't talk about it at the moment. Jonathan Labbee: No, but I'll be happy to speak with you when we can. Absolutely. All right. Thank you very much for spending some time with me. That was terrific. Jonathan Labbee: It was a pleasure.

Ryan and Tony are joined by Craig for the first time since his sabbatical. We discuss Steven Seagal, Alec Pierce, and Kenny Pickett. Plus, some info on the Football Absurdity …
Phil and Jake are joined once again by Efrem Schulz to rank rap group Insane Clown Posse, actor Gary Busey, and a third topic on the List of Every Damn Thing.Find Efrem on Twitter (@Efbystereo) and Instagram (@efbystereo). And keep on eye out for upcoming shows by his bands Death By Stereo, Voodoo Glow Skulls and Manic Hispanic! 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: The only ICP song we really discuss is (of course) “Miracles”. The Great Milenko is a devil figure in the Juggalo cosmology - "According to the group's mythology, The Great Milenko is a necromancer and illusionist who tries to trick individuals into greed and other such sins. He takes out the worst in an individual and creates powerful illusions in an attempt to cause them to become hedonistic and greedy. An honorable individual must fight his magic in order to make it to Shangri-La." Horrorcore is a genre that was a big deal in the 90s. It's pretty much what it sounds like. Horror-inflected rap music. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony were initially extremely horrorcore. They had a song called "Hell Sent" about invading hell and killing demons. Looking back now it was inescapable, from the Geto Boys ("Chuckie") to Ice-T ("pulse of the rhyme") to the Gravediggaz ("1-800-Suicide"). It's one of those things you don't realize is everywhere until years later when it's gone. American Juggalo is a great short film about the Gathering of the Juggalos. You should watch it. Busey movies discussed include The Buddy Holly Story, Point Break, Under Siege and The Gingerdead Man. We also talk about his appearances on such reality TV shows as I'm With Busey, Celebrity Rehab and Gary Busey Pet Judge. The Rock is Phil's favorite 90's action movie. People get it confused with Con Air but it's much better. All three stars (Connery, Harris and Cage) go all-out. Jake Busey is Gary Busey's son, he looks like his dad. Starship Troopers is a Paul Verhoeven film loosely based based on the film of the same name by Robert Heinlein. It's maybe the best anti-war movie of the past 50 years but the general public really showed their ass by missing the point. Is Gary Busey in Lethal Weapon? You bet your ass he is.

Phil and Jake are rank the 1983 fictional band biopic Eddie and the Cruisers, the 1999 Latin pop hit “Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of…)” by Lou Bega, and being possessed 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: Jake and Phil are always on the grind trying to make money while they sleep, trying to monetize, etc. Just the most craven shit you can imagine. Pod-Bucks are how Phil and Jake get paid for making this podcast. A Pod-Buck is kind of like a No-Prize but without the envelope. Actors that we discuss include Tom Berenger, Ellen Barkin, Joe Pantoliano, James Franco, Michael Paré, Rick Springfield, Gary Oldman, Dan Aykroyd and Bob Saget. Many musical acts come up during the episode, such as Bruce Springsteen, Dion and the Belmonts, My Chemical Romance, Damaso Perez Prado, Aerosmith, Ice Cube, Spinderella, Bell Biv Devoe and Chris Gaines. We talk about how The Doors were used as an inspiration for Eddie and the Cruisers, but we fail to draw the connection that there were also rumors about Jim Morrison faking his death. Songs discussed include “On the Dark Side” by John Cafferty (which is from the movie), “Quarter to Three” by Gary U.S. Bonds (maybe Phil's favorite song of the 20th century), “Project Chick” by Cash Money Millionaires, “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cindi Lauper and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” by Dione Warwick. Phil mentions a song from the movie called “Special Touch” but the actual name of the song is “Down On My Knees” (also by John Cafferty). Phil's right when he says it sounds like “Hurts So Good” by John Mellencamp. Other movies discussed include That Thing You Do!, West Is West, Streets of Fire, Jersey Boys, The Fabulous Baker Boys, Howard the Duck, Caddyshack, The Matrix, The Truman Show, Drumline, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Exorcist, All of Me, Ghost, Ghost Rider, Ghostbusters, Evil Dead 2, Repossessed, R.I.P.D., The Frighteners and of course Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! Streets of Rage is the arcade game Phil mentioned that uses the common trope of a power up of a whole roast chicken that makes the player regain his health. The Palace of Depression was a real place in Vineland, New Jersey. Jake claims that Eddie and the Cruisers used the actual site as a shooting location, though the internet implies that it was razed in 1969 so maybe the one from the movie was a recreation. Jake calls meals_by_cug a Jersey guy but it looks like he's from Staten Island. We refer to our episode featuring Dave Hause, in which we go over Dave's USA Today piece about Taylor Swift and master tapes. Here's the scene from The Simpsons where Bart tries to buy a novelty license plate. Brian WIlson had a nervous breakdown when he heard the Beatles' Revolver. Sleep paralysis is the worst. Jake cites Scottish folklore that attributes it to a witch sitting on your chest. We couldn't trace the story to Scotland, but we did discover the night hag, which isn't too far off the mark. We don't actually get into the movie, but Silverado is an 80s neo-traditional Western by Lawrence Kasdan with a stacked cast that Phil's never seen, and is the one movie that Phil will never be invited over to Jake's house to watch.

We bring back friend of the show Quantian1 to discuss sanctions against Russia, how the global financial system can shut out a large economy (and how economic integration doesn't necessarily mean less chance of conflict), how the conflict will affect food prices, and our theory that, instead of sanctions, we should just do a Reverse Salisbury on Putin.

PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Steven R. Monroe (I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE 2010, THE EXORCISM OF MOLLY HARTLEY, HOUSE OF 9) has one of the most prolific resumes in Hollywood. Hell, he was 1st assistant camera (focus puller) on the 1991 Steven Seagal ass-kicker OUT FOR JUSTICE and he directed 8 TV movies in 2017 alone! Seriously, look the guy up on IMDB and your head will spin! In this fantastic conversation, Steven joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss the reality of being a steadily working director in an industry that is constantly changing beneath the legs of his director's chair. Chock full of practical anecdotes and long-term career advice from his own experiences, the boys discuss how Steven has managed to retain the passion for his craft no matter what the size of the project or the genre he is working in. Steven discusses the making of his latest horror film UNBORN (now available exclusively on Tubi - Steven's 3rd Tubi original), Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a listener who is considering turning her original stage play into a film, and the conversation turns deadly serious in the second hour when the boys dive into Steven's experience re-making the extremely controversial rape revenge film I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. An absolute must hear! Meet Adam Green at HORRORHOUND WEEKEND in Cincinnati, OH over the weekend of March 25 - 27, 2022! The appearance will be Adam's first time back at HORRORHOUND in 10 years and his first convention appearance in almost 4 years! For more information visit: www.HorrorHoundWeekend.com
We start this week's show by talking about former UFC fighter Cain Velasquez, who was recently arrested for attempted murder. After that somber MMA news, we shine a light on some positive MMA news by giving a dinosaur update that will surely make Georges St. Pierre a very, very happy boy. We also discuss a recent Instagram post GSP made. Danish shares some info about a Steven Seagal energy drink commercial someone sent him to watch. Then, it's on to an absolutely grizzly crime (not involving a grizzly bear or any other bear for that matter). Don't do meth, everyone! Don't do meth. Speaking of crime, we head off to Vegas to talk about a guy who was making some "interesting" claims to law enforcement after he was arrested. After that, we get into the story of a Chinese businessman who wants his son to grow up to be a womanizing scumbag. Tired of not hearing any Polish toy updates? Well, the wait is finally over! Today's your day, so enjoy it. Want to join the mile high club but don't like that you can't do it privately? Well, we have a sweet offer for you! There's a company that's offering that service for a price. What a time to be alive! To wrap up the show, we learn some interesting fun facts about Aaron. He surprises us week after week!
