i'm lindsey vonn, and ever since i retired from skiing, i've had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. you know, insomnia. before i found quviviq, an fda-approved insomnia medication for adults. you would not believe the things i used to think about when i couldn't sleep. hey, linds. i need you to sign this business contract. all 114 pages. lindsey, lindsey!! hey, lindsey! it's workout time. hey, big man, we're in the middle of something here. yeah, it's called physical fitness. just a couple dozen more questions, lindsey. don't forget to pack your phone charger for tomorrow morning's flight. it's plugged in right over there. insomnia can impact both my days and my nights. that's why i take quviviq nightly. quviviq can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, and more sleep at night may mean feeling less tired during the day.
quviviq works differently than medication you may have taken in the past. quviviq is thought to target one of the biological causes of insomnia. overactive wake signals. do not take quviviq if you have narcolepsy. don't drink alcohol while taking quviviq or drive or operate heavy machinery until you feel fully alert. quviviq may cause temporary inability to move or talk or hallucinations while falling asleep or waking up. quviviq may cause sleepiness during the day. quviviq may lead to doing activities while not fully awake that you don't remember the next day, like walking, driving and making or eating food. worsening depression including suicidal thoughts may occur. the most common side effects are headaches and sleepiness. it's quviviq. ask your doctor if it's right for you.
non-gaming tribes have been left in the dust. wealthy tribes with big casinos make billions, while small tribes struggle in poverty. prop 27 is a game changer. 27 taxes and regulates online sports betting to fund permanent solution to homelessness. while helping every tribe in california. so who's attacking prop 27? wealthy casino tribes who want all the money for themselves support small tribes, address homelessness. vote yes on 27.

gabrielle, do you -- do you -- when you see your book out, what do you -- do you go, "oh, yeah, that's me that's my book." >> you know what the coolest thing is like, the book club seal like, that's slick >> jimmy: you like that? [ cheers and applause >> don't you >> jimmy: it's not bad i worked on that i wanted to make it classy and look good. >> no, it's so classy. >> jimmy: it is? >> i think it's -- it feels like it's been around forever, not like we're the first ones. >> jimmy: right? >> you know, but i am the first one. >> jimmy: but you are the first one. exactly, gabrielle >> yeah. >> jimmy: thank you. [ cheers and applause i love this book, "tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow." i want to get into it. but i wanted to show something, because you didn't -- no one starts writing novels. they start -- everyone has - >> well, as a baby, i just came out and started writing novels >> jimmy: just started writing books. >> that's how that works >> jimmy: no, but talk to me about, you were a high school -- what was it? a concert critic what were you? [ laughter ] a music critic >> i was a music critic for the fort lauderdale "sun sentinel. >> jimmy: yeah >> they had a -- [ individual cheer ] wow, okay. wave for fort lauderdale >> jimmy: yeah, one person, yeah [ laughter ] yeah, yeah >> yeah, they had a special teen section and i went to a guns n' roses concert, and when i got home that night, there was a really mean review, insulting to axl,
insulting to the band. >> jimmy: no >> you know. and so, i wrote an angry letter to that newspaper. and i ended up getting hired to review, like, concerts and cds >> jimmy: like, a teen consultant - >> yes >> jimmy: -- critic. this is -- i mean, this is cameron crowe, man this is how everyone, but i love the bottom of this. it says here's -- it says, "if south florida ever sees a concert of this caliber again, that concert would defy the laws of nature after all, lightning never strikes the same place twice." well written >> thank you [ cheers and applause >> jimmy: and stick up for axl, and slash, and duff, and everybody. [ laughter ] guns n' roses. well, "tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow," big hit, by the way. you've been on "the new york times" bestseller list, top ten list, for now -- since it came out, actually. >> yeah. >> jimmy: you were actually -- i heard that you're very excited that it ca -- it opened at number three. >> well, i just want to say that i would have been fine with it being number one [ laughter ] but i was -- i was really excited with three as well, because there's three tomorrows in the title >> jimmy: okay >> that makes sense, right >> jimmy: yeah, tomorrow,
tomorrow, tomorrow >> and i was also then excited when it was number five, because there's two ands there, so, you've got tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: okay >> and when it was number seven, still excited, because there are actually two commas after each tomorrow. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: all right. no, this is ridiculous that's - [ laughter ] that's ridiculous. but how do we describe the book >> whenever anybody asks me to synopsize the book, i basically panic, because i think the book's pretty complicated. >> jimmy: is it really >> but, so, i've started saying, it's just about love, art, video games, and time which i know sounds really vague. so then i add, "well, it's about these two kids who meet as children, and they spend the next 30 years playing games and making games." you know and it's sort of about what if the person who's the most important person in your life wasn't any of the usual suspects what if it wasn't, like, your wife or your kids? what if it really was your colleague and your friend? and i think the book reflects my belief that a great love story can also be a great friendship story >> jimmy: yeah see. look at that right now, everyone's like, "yes." [ cheers and applause
it is that good. i love -- so, i'm reading it, and i go, okay, "tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow," i know is from macbeth. but what is the connection for you between "tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow"? >> well, i have to say, when you did your little video about it, you had the title exactly right. so, while it does come from one of the bleakest speeches in all of shakespeare - >> jimmy: yeah >> you know, it's macbeth's act five soliloquy and nothing good happens in act five of macbeth to anybody [ laughter ] but the character who, like, cites it in my novel, he actually finds great hope in it the idea that every day we're alive is a chance to start again. and conveniently for me, he also finds a metaphor for video games with their infinite lives and infinite chances at redemption, which i think is something you really hit upon when you were guessing what the title was. >> jimmy: yeah i did -- great so, i did say that, yeah >> you did say that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: thank you. yeah, because i was thinking, i do love games, and i love all the references to gaming we were just talking backstage our parents both worked at ibm growing up
>> yes >> jimmy: by the way, i had a great experience with ibm. they were really great >> yeah, no -- like, people have no idea how ibm was, like, your whole life if your parents worked there there were christmas parties, there was, like, family funday >> jimmy: family day yes. >> you know? >> jimmy: yes, family day was great. >> and so we were thinking, maybe we went to the same ones >> jimmy: yeah, maybe. >> maybe >> jimmy: we could have been there together >> we -- but we aren't -- so, we're basically related through ibm. >> jimmy: yes, we are. we're ibm brother/sister, yeah >> right which you can tell >> jimmy: but there's so many references there to "oregon trail. >> yeah. >> jimmy: that's what really got me 'cause there's two friends that haven't seen each other since high school. and they're yelling across the train station. and he goes, "sadie, sadie." and she's not turning around he goes, "sadie, you died of dysentery. >> right [ laughter ] >> jimmy: and they decide to make a game together >> yeah. >> jimmy: and that's really interesting. 'cause i've never heard of a a love story where you're like, "oh, that's a new take on" -- i've seen every hallmark movie [ laughter ] and i go - but the games are genius when you think about them and then i heard that maybe they might be in development >> well, they made "emilyblaster," as you know. >> jimmy: i love that.
>> so, you can play that you know >> jimmy: can you explain "emilyblaster" to people >> yes so, it's a game that my character, sadie, makes in college. and you shoot fragments of the poetry of emily dickinson. [ light laughter ] so you can go -- if you've ever wanted to shoot emily dickinson's poetry, which, who among us hasn't [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i mean, this is -- >> right >> jimmy: why has this not been invented >> why has this not been invented >> jimmy: exactly. >> you can play that at emilyblaster.com but, you know. but the other games, yeah. like, i would love to see them get made i'm thinking right now when we read a book or we watch a movie, we want to experience it in different ways and gaming storytelling is so different than book storytelling or movie storytelling in a way, you get to be a part of it in this really active way. and so i think it would be awesome if people made games >> jimmy: it already got -- the rights got sold. someone bought this to make a movie out of this, right >> yes so - >> jimmy: come on.
