There's problems with the Tarzan movie, and movies in general, and Keiran makes up for being lazy this weekend.
*** Introduction ***
So it's Sunday afternoon here in Montreal Canada. How are you guys doing over there? I'm not publishing this podcast on Sunday, it's actually probably Monday or Tuesday, but regardless hope you had a great weekend. So this weekend I had a really low key weekend. I did not do much, I did almost nothing at all. I'm actually feeling bad about it a bit now. Cause I mean I was burnt out, I just needed to relax. So I needed to do that, it's ok. I went to see a Just for Laughs comedy show last night with my older sister and with Max we went to go see the nasty show. The nasty show features some fantastic comics. A few lesser known comics, and all of the comedians tend to be more on the dirty side, on the vulgar side, they talk a lot about sex, they talk a lot about, mmm dark stuff, and things that you can't usually hear, very offensive stuff and overall it was a fantastic show I had a great time. And earlier in the day I went to see Tarzan with my wife. Tarzan the movie, it was alright, i wasn't really excited to see it in the first place, it was my wife who wanted to see it. And, what was exciting for us was that that was the first movie in I don't know three years, that we've seen without my daughter. It's the first movie we went to see that wasn't a kids movie. So that was, that was exciting, to be in a movie theater without a kid like clinging on to me and whining, and hogging all the popcorn and not sharing anything you know, and that was a positive side of the trip. But I had a, I had an issue with the movie and it was that um, every single male character in the movie was absolutely ripped, they're in top physical shape, every character had like a six pack, broad big shoulders, huge muscular arms, and I mean I get it, for Tarzan, I understand that Tarzan has to be like this because Tarzan grew up in the jungle like fighting with animals and he's this muscular dude. But I've seen pictures of natural geographic and I know that most, people who grow up in African jungles are not these super body builder looking guys, who are they making this movie for, I don't understand why they have to propagate the idea that every single male who exists is just huge and muscular. It's dumb and get that we do this with women in movies too, every women has to be beautiful. But like it's just, who are they trying to sell this to, like who buys this. It was the same thing with 300, like 300, the movie 300 they're all warriors, so ok, but it's dumb. Like men, men this doesn't appeal to men, like heterosexual men they don't care about this, and I'm pretty sure heterosexual women don't care about this either. Like women in their thirties and forties they're attracted to a man because of character, so why do they make this lie that everyone is ripped. I don't know it pissed me off. Let's get on with this story I guess. Wednesday I'm going to Kingston with Max and Gabriel, we're going to do a Comedy club Wednesday night. So we're going to do a podcast Wednesday night that's going to be fun so you should expect that on Thursday. And that brings us to our topic today. I did nothing this weekend I did no podcast. Usually I try to get two or four podcasts done on a Wednesday or a Saturday I did none. So I'm going to make up for it right now by doing this podcast with phrasal verbs about the word make, and by make up for something I mean I'm going to compensate for the mistake or the laziness I had earlier in the week by creating a podcast now. So I'm going to make up for the laziness by creating the podcast now. Make up for something. Have you ever made up for something, sometimes people have to make thing up to their lovers, you know, I gotta make up to my wife for not taking her out to that dinner I promised her last week cause I was overwhelmed with work. So I'm going to make it up to her and take her to a fancy restaurant next weekend. I'm going to make it up to her. What have you? Have you ever made it up to somebody? For something you were supposed to do but did not do? How did you make it up to them? Did you buy them flowers? Did you romance them? Did you take them out to a fancy dinner? To the theme park? What did you do to make it up to them? So that's make it up to someone.
Ok the next one were going to do is make up a story. Little kids are great at making up stories. And by making up stories we mean fabricating a story which is clearly false, a tall tale, in order to deceive someone or possibly just to entertain someone. For example I was calling my daughter to come in for dinner and she didn't come and I was like "Michelle I called you 5 minutes ago where were you?" And she said " Well I was playing in the garden and I saw some butterflies and they started talking to me and they told me about the secret butterfly world where every kid has five butterfly friends and they're rainbow colored butterflies and they were..."
"Michelle stop making up stories, get inside." K she was making up a story. Sometimes in school you would have some homework do or an assignment do and you wouldn't have it done. So you would make up a story on the spot to tell your teacher to hopefully get out of that sticky situation and hopefully your teacher would buy the story. And maybe you said oh my dog made, my dog ate my homework, and if your teacher was smart they would be like John stop making up stories you have to stay for detention you didn't do your homework. So make up something, to fabricate a story, a lie, in order to get out of a sticky situation or just to entertain somebody.
OK, the last phrasal verb today, we're going to do with make and up. Make up is to make up with someone. Meaning to forget your problems and to repair your relationship and move on with your life. For example "John and Jennifer had been fighting for weeks over what to do, or where to go on their holidays, but they finally just picked a place and they made up and now their relationship is going smoothly again. They got over their egos, they let go of their bad feelings and they just made up. The US and Russian governments need to just make up and move on with their lives, stop demonizing each other all the time, they need to make up. Alright guys that's that's it I'm going to wrap up this podcast so we had three phrasal verbs. All using the words make up, make up for something, or make it up to someone, means to compensate for letting someone down. I made it up to my wife by taking her out for a romantic dinner. Make up the second phrasal verb, is to create or to fabricate a story which is clearly a lie, children are great at making up tall tales or making up stories to get out of punishment. My daughter made up a story about the butterfly world. And lastly to make up with someone , to make up with someone, to make up, John and Jennifer just made up with each other. Is to forget your problems, repair your relationship and move on with your life. The Russian and the American government should just make up and get on with all their corrupt activities that they need to get to.
