"Tens of millions of people were on the edge of just outright destitution addiction from their homes, not having enough money to put food on the table. We all saw the extraordinary aerial footage of those queues of people that you know middle class cars. Queuing up for food. Yeah, I mean that That is a crisis of the type. I never expected to see. It really doesn't awaken memories of the 19 thirties, and so this was a huge stress test. Of the American system. You think we've learned from it? And is it fair to say that our position as the world's leading economy is at stake here? Managing these kind of crisis is going to be the test? Yes, I think I think when we think about superpower competition, you can go down the conventional military route. But in a sense, I think that's the easy option. If I may say so, this sort of, you know, counting up your nuclear weapons and deciding who's got most and who can do second strikes and so on. That's the that's the game. We know how to play and how to win, and I don't think that is going to be the game. Certainly, if we're talking about the actual security of people, what makes them safe? It's going to be how we deal with hurricanes and massive flooding events, that sort of thing that shocked America this summer. All pandemics like this. That's what actually makes people safe and enables them to carry on their way of life as they expect. And I don't think that the 2020 experience makes one confident that America is well prepared for those kinds of challenges. Yeah. Adam two's teaches at Columbia. He's the author of Shutdown.

"No program on the history of the electric guitar would be complete without talking about Les Paul, who actually was a famous guitarist and Monica. Tell me, why is he important? He's an interesting figure, because in some ways, I believe he's gotten more attention for invention around the electric guitar, then maybe he should, but not enough around his both playing but also his sound recording inventions. The thing with Les Paul is that he was an amazing guitar player very fast, very high quality. A lot of people wanted to play like him, and he was extremely popular, and he had experimented as had others in the forties and even late thirties with the idea of a solid body electric guitar. He came up with something he called the log around 1941 that was basically a piece of wood with pick up and strings on it. And he tried to play it in a club and the club owner said. That doesn't look like a guitar. Or you can't play that. So he cut another guitar in half Put the wings essentially on the piece of wood. To make it look like a guitar. And then it was okay, so this innovation of his sort of gained this mythical quality about the early solid body electrics. But actually in the Smithsonian's collections we have is Slingerlands Song Storer guitar from the late 19 thirties that was a Spanish style solid body electric guitar. It's in trade catalogues, but it never took off. So there's something about the combination of innovation at the right time and fame..

"A legendary pioneer of the electric guitar in the late 19 thirties and early forties, showing this why the guitar needed to be amplified when combined with other instruments, But that required the technology to enable the guitar to be amplified in the first place. Progress in translating theoretical understanding of electromagnetism into practical applications led to the development of an electromagnetic pickup. So HP. How did that come about? Well as far back as the late 18 hundreds. You had people exploring ways to use electricity with musical instruments and by the 19 twenties and number of people, notably George Beach them. And explored ways of using magnets, Uh, to pick up the sounds of musical instruments, much like my friends were used in telephones and for singing. So beach and realize that you could take a magnet hold it over metal strings, and the strings would create vibrations in the magnet that could be turned into signals, which could then be sent to an amplifier and amplified. Those signals could then be listened to and heard his music. And there's something called the electro Frying pan wasn't there Tell me about that? Well, the frying pan was really the first mass produced guitar. It was a form of lap steel guitar used for playing Hawaiian music. And it was created in 1932, and it's one of the instruments that George Beach and created. And essentially the frying pan, which looks like a frying pan. It's a long, flat metal frying, pan shaped guitar was the first electric guitar that was mass produced in any way, shape or form. And the fact it was used for Hawaiian music is completely different than what most people think, because it wasn't created to play blues or rock or jazz. Now pull your a design historian. So tell me what made the frying pan guitar So different in terms of design. If you can imagine a banjo with a very small body and a long neck That's more or less the proportions of the fried pan guitar. It was originally all one piece. And the frets were marked in there actually cast into the aluminum, so it was a very kind of classic piece of design. It was very kind of Bauhaus piece of design. It couldn't really be much more simple. Than it was. It was a very reduced design, and it was in production for a number of years. It was kind of a very successful product in the end. Now from the mid 19 thirties onwards. Other guitar makers, including the well known ones.

"The war it really is and all of the spending and all the inflation and all of these programs they're paying people not to work. You know, we've been talking about that also, Chris, for the last couple of months on your show, our having a negative fact. They're actually holding back the economy. So I think we're gonna get a decent jobs report. Maybe a rule of Blockbuster one and that Our use against you know, Maura Maura trillions of dollars. I mean, if everybody seeing the inflation right now you see it. Gas prices you're seeing at the grocery store. You see him? Try to get a construction crew or, you know, go to the hardware store and provide some lumber by an airline ticket. I mean, you're seeing that inflation. Picked up and that's because the government is spending and spending and borrowing boring. So the worst thing we could do right now The worst possible thing would be to spend another $2 trillion and and then borrow it. I mean, it was just kind of put gasoline on a fighter. I want you to use your economist teaching skills and help explain this one for me from Bloomberg. Mike McKee. Michael McKee from Bloomberg had this to say about our paycheck and what it's worth today. Comparatively, the last year those were watching inflation. Got some more of it today, Lisa, We are seeing numbers that we haven't seen in quite some time. The income and spending numbers come in pretty much as expected. We knew that incomes were going to fall because we had seen transfer Payments. The steamy checks go up 570% in March there down by 70%. This month, spending held in half a percent. We knew it would drop, but it did hold in. But the numbers everybody's looking at a course of the peace. Eeny, um bors, the core PC 1.8% last month up to 3.1% That is the highest since 1992. So that's going to get a lot of people's attentions. So that shorthand is 3% less than last year's. What your paychecks worth. Basically your paycheck is buying less than it did last year. Shorthand way to say that right? Yeah, and by the way, three proud, Take 3% inflation. I mean, that's not a you know, that's a little bit above. You know what the Fed wants the target to be 2 to 2.5%, which I'm comfortable with. But But I look I'm much more worried. I'm not worried about 3% inflation crest. I worried about that going to 456%. You know, that's when it really starts to bite and really starts to be. You know, pain in your wallet when you start to see those kinds of higher, So if we could keep the inflation rate of three, I'd be fine with that. You know, be a little bit too high for me. But my goodness, I'm much more worried about putting $2 Trillion more, because every time you just push all this money Into the economy without any, you know, way of paying for it. That just makes every dollar that you have worthless, right? I mean, this was this isn't rocket science is very simple. Is it simply just not printing money? Or does the Federal reserve is their action that needs to be taken in your view? I think the Fed is been a little bit behind the curve here, but I really don't think the problem is right now is the fact I mean, I've had some problems with the feds. I think it's all fiscal policy. I really do. I think it's there's nothing the Fed can do if this Congress keeps money, our money. I mean, how they you know. What are we gonna do? We the fact the Treasury has to issue Bonds, right if if you're gonna bow all that money And then you know when people ish by those bonds, it pushes up the interest rate that puts up inflation. I mean again, 1/6 grader could figure this out that I'm not talking about, you know, calculus here and so it's just advocate. But this is what happens in great nations fail. When they spend and borrow the way to oblivion, and you know, it's It's like a drinking binge. You know, It feels great when you when you got there, dancing on the tables, and then the next morning, you can't get out of bed and that's what I really am worried about it. I think most sane people understand that. But by miss acting like you know, they could just spend it. But because here's the thing, folks, there's this crazy thing, I'm sure you've heard of this. Chris, Have you heard of modern monetary theory? I've heard of it. Yes. Okay, So this is this crazy theory that came up some from second rate. But economists of some second rate universities and basically said, you know is like his interest rates are low. We could just keep following a borrowing and spending and spending and they'll be negative. No negative consequences to it. And I remember when this first came out this idea, you know, we all just laughed at it like, Can you believe these kooks? And yet this is exactly what the biting people are doing. And it's like saying T. You know if I jump out of window of a 98 for the 98 98 4 of the of the John Hancock Building, Boy, you know for the 1st 88 floors. It feels great and tell your fashion on the ground, So it's kind of he's kind of a neighbor of a king's Ian theory kind of a thing. It's It's Yeah, something similar. Came seeing came about in the 19 thirties, when liberals backed down, wanted an excuse to spend so cane cane, Jin said. Oh, it's okay to borrow. You know, when you've got a downturn in the economy, and so we just became an excuse to spend now they needed politicians need a new excuse to spend. And so they come up with this new crazy idea called modern monetary theory. I'm gonna try it here at home. I'm just gonna keep spending and spending and borrowing and see how that turns out and see that here's the thing. I don't understand. I'll let you go on this. I don't I truly do. I understand. I know that this economy took a huge whack last year 22. They estimate something like 22 million jobs lost at the height of the pandemic, and we shut the economy down. We've never done that. But the thing is With the economy didn't die, and a lot of the jobs didn't go away. And in fact, now we know we have millions of jobs that are going unfilled. So it's this is not like 2008. It's not like the housing downturn is like the market crash. That's what makes this so confusing..

conspiracy theories on March 4 and the reason behind them
"Theorists to March 4th. Well, it used to be that march. 4th was the date that presidents were inaugurated. We're talking decades ago, back before the 19 thirties and some right wing extremists have concocted this frankly strange and baseless idea that former President Trump would return to power today. Which they see as the true inauguration day. Now I talked to Denver Riggleman about this. He is a former Republican congressman who now tracks disinformation with the network Contagion Research Institute and Steve Riggleman told me that there is a lot of confusion among conspiracy theorists, many of them now believe without evidence, of course.

"O s radio. I'm your host, Pastor Craig Bergson win in your last segment, asking the question. Is what Gina Khurana said on social media. True. Did the Nazi government teach normal German citizens to hate their Jewish neighbors. The answer. Is yes, the absolutely did now many in our listening audience know that the Nazis had a minister for public enlightenment and propaganda. His name. Was Joseph Goebbels, and he was the mastermind behind the Nazi propaganda machine, which was designed to influence the entire nation of Germany to hate with extreme prejudice. It's Jewish citizens. Goebbels was a beret, cious anti Semite. And so this propaganda apartment also had the purpose of being the architect off executing its murderous agenda against the Jews. Now, how is this done? Well, the minister for public enlightenment to propaganda controlled every aspect of German culture, from radio to the press to publishing cinema and all other arts. Gribble subjected Artists send journalist to state control and he eliminated all Jews and political opponents from positions of influence. 1933, he staged a massive book burning in Berlin, where university students destroyed the works of Jewish and other black listen authors and huge bonfires. In addition, Goebbels used film to promote the Nazis. Anti Semitic message films like The Eternal Jew, which was in 1940 also influenced Nazi ideology through documentary is like the triumph of the will, and by the film Olympia, which was about the Berlin Olympics in 1936. Every aspect of German culture was used as a vast apparatus Propaganda machine with two purposes Number one to vilify the Jew. To make the Jew the reason for the economic woes of the past and to show that the Jew is not germane in any way and is the true enemy of the German people. The second purpose was to indoctrinate the people. Nazi ideology and guess what it worked. And what is shocking about all of this is that it took on Li listen carefully, only took six years. Between 1933 to 1939 to convince the nation of Germany Of all that Hitler wanted them to believe and leg zombies. They did his will. It wasn't hard for the Nazis to find the Jews because the citizens of Germany being brainwashed did their part. And finding and harassing them and turning them in. There's a film. There's film documentary evidence, photographic evidence to this very fact. And believe it or not, There's testimonies off countless survivors, and you could say looking it out. Looking at the history looking at all that's been laid out. The fact of German compliance with the 90 desires to extract and harass and persecute the juice is incontrovertible. And so what Gina, Carano said was true. Now the question remains. Was the analogy True. That's what she said. Because history is edited. Most people today don't realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easy round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views? Now I would agree. With many that making comparisons to what happened during the worst conflict in human history can be stretching. We have to be careful if we make comparisons, especially in regard to the Nazis and even the Communist because of the immense amount of evil, which was so concentrated in those two regimes now, having said that There are many lessons we can learn from understanding what happened. And one thing we learned was that the government of Germany, the Nazi led government of Germany, created an environment of hate hate against a particular person due to their race. But Gino Khurana did was to carry this particular new wants of history and asked the question is this dynamic of hate like it was in Germany in the 19 thirties. Being massage in our country today against people who just happen to have a different political view. That's the question she's act asking. She's taking a new once of this time period in Germans history and then putting it into our context today and wondering is this dynamic of hate? Being massaged in the same way today as it was way back in 19 thirties Germany. Now, why would she ask this? Why would she reflect on the past and think about our culture and ask this question? Well, it's very simple. People in our culture today have been what they've been blackballed blacklisted, fired, canceled, targeted professionally personally and physically. Because of having a different perspective. And this behavior continues at the velocity. If it continues at the velocity that it is, it keeps moving the way that is, then it may come to a point. What is happening in our country now May 1 Day soon look a lot like what's happening in Germany. In the mid 19 thirties and to the late 19 thirties. You see Counsel culture is something very real and I will tell you it's not going away anywhere soon. Any time soon as well. We've learned that it has destructive power. And the question that will have to ask is, Is this going to get worse? We know it's not gonna go anywhere. But is it going to get worse? You see if Cancel culture has the power to cancel the wealthy That is billionaires, millionaires, business owners if it has the power to cancel writers Musicians, artists, actors, academics and even the out spoken And how long do we have until it comes for us? As I said, and I've said this many times, but it bears repeating. And Marxism. There is no forgiveness. There is no redemption because in Marxism there is no God that exist that can provide redemption in Marxism. There is no God that can provide forgiveness. This is why by default in Marxism All retribution. All judgment is centered in the state, The state Is the place of God and judgment. And it's in the here and the now this is why it's so easy for the left to cancel you with no care about how it affects your life or the others around you. And this is not. This is not new. It all has been done in the former Soviet Union with the gulags. As you know, the gulag was the council culture of a Communist. Yes, a very extreme form of council culture, but council culture nonetheless. It was the place of judgment and death for tens intends of millions with the vast majority of them being innocents. And guess what? The Gulag was the model for the Nazis as they were creating what they called the final solution. Remember the good lungs of the Soviet Union, where the concentration camps of communism and they predated the Nazi concentration camps by at least 10 years now, please, No, Please understand. I need to make this very clear. I'm not saying the United States government is creating camps the throw US citizens into What I am saying, is that the rhetoric and the soft actions of our culture today by corporations, educational institutions by the media a much more toward those who have a different perspective. Use similar.

Biden says he's "not a fan" of Supreme Court packing
"Back to the takeaway. I'm tan Xena Vega and I'm speaking with slates Marc Joseph Stern about Amy Cockney. Barrett's confirmation hearings. Barrett's confirmation could tip the ideological balance of the Supreme Court into a firm, conservative majority. And now many Democrats are openly discussing changing the makeup of the court itself. Mark. I want to talk a little bit about this idea that's come up a couple times that to be fair, the Democrats, including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Have really deflected on answering the question about court packing. So can you explain what that is? Yes. So the Constitution does not actually set the number of seats on the Supreme Court. It's been nine for about 150 years, but it has been I throughout all of history as few as six and as many as 10 seats. So actually, Congress is the one that gets to decide how many seats there are on the Supreme Court. And if Congress wants to add seeds, then it's allowed Teo that pretty much everybody agrees. Those are the rules. So court packing simply means Congress passing a bill signed by the president. That odd seats to the Supreme Court and in this instance is we're talking about it today, it would be an effort to dilute the influence of conservative justices. Like Amy Cockney Barrett if she's confirmed by adding liberal justices who will be able to out vote her now let's be clear. I mean, the Republicans have honed in on the Supreme Court. Ah for decades now, as they're really strategy in terms of remaking on having more conservatives on the court, and they've been very successful in that President Trump has done that in lower courts in particular. So the fight for the seats in the Supreme Court has been Ah, difficult one, particularly after the nomination of Merrick, Garland and and the GOP sort of stepping in to prevent that nomination from moving forward, And I give that background because it feels like there is a lot of criticism that the Democrats may want to pack the courts if you will, But don't they have no other choice? I mean, hasn't gotten to the point where politically, this is just a really nasty fight. Yes, that's what a lot of Democrats are. Concluding. These is for a long time court Packing was kind of a third rail of politics. FDR infamously tried and failed to do it in the thirties. But I think the Democratic Party's looking out of a little differently these days because the choices here are not very good for them. I mean, they can, either. Try to expand the courts, you know, try to get their caucus together. If they win big in November and add seats, or they can suffer for decades under an extremely conservative court, and and let's be clear if Amy Cockney Barrett is confirmed the Supreme Court will be way more conservative than it has been for decades. Probably not since the early 19 thirties. This would be A really radical change in the makeup of the court, and that's in the makeup of really America and the laws that are allowed to exist here on DH. So I think that a lot of Democrats are saying, Look, if our only other option is having the boots of the Supreme Court stomping on our face for decades, we've got to take core expansion seriously because it's the only thing that will allow our democracy to survive. And, you know, we're hearing from Joe Biden specifically has said, and I'm quoting here. That I've already spoken on. I'm not a fan of court packing, but I don't want to get off on that whole issue. I want to keep focused. Why is Joe Biden sort of toeing the line here when it comes to the court? I mean, given everything that we just talked about? Well, Biden says he wants to focus on the fight at hand. And I believe him. I think he really doesn't want to distract from this Barrett confirmation battle by by changing the entire conversation about you know what he thinks of court packing, right? The goal for Democrats right now is to throw everything into the fight against Barrett, right, Leave it all on the fields. Leave all the blood and teeth on the floor is Elizabeth Warren used to say and really make it clear that they staunchly opposed this nominee that they view the whole thing is illegitimate. But that's probably going to fail. Republicans hold the Senate Republicans seemed to have the votes. And so what I think Democrats want to do is really work up a lot of productive anger and rage among the Democratic base. And then if Barrett is confirmed, have the conversation about court expansion later after the election when it's less of a political hot potato when Democrats know whether they've won or knocked, so I think Mine's obviously being evasive and elusive here, but he's doing it for a pretty smart strategic reasons. He wants everybody to be focusing on Barrett. Not the hypothetical possibility of Democrats retaliation If Barrett is confirmed
Swastika, New York, Is Keeping Its Name
"There's a debate in this country over symbols and statues and place names that are tied toe white supremacy. So what to do about a small community in rural northern New York? Called swastika. This summer visitor proposed just changing the name, but local officials opposed the idea. Julia Richie from North Country Public Radio explains why Michael Al Kamo lives in New York City but loves visiting the Adirondack Mountains and upstate New York to cycle through its tiny towns and Hamlets and past historical cemeteries. He was on a trip like this winding through a remote stretch this summer when he noticed something else. Suddenly I came to a town called Watch. The Hamlets name was printed on a small brown street sign. He says he found the name jarring and disrespectful to Veterans of World War two, some of whom are buried in graves nearby, So I think it should be obvious that the town Should update its name and should pick a name that is not so offensive to so many Americans and so emblematic of intolerance, hate and tyranny. So al Comer reached out to county officials in August to see if they would consider it. He was soon directed to email the town of Black Brooke. Which has jurisdiction over swastika. The town agreed to add it to the agenda for their September meeting. And after about five minutes of discussion, the town's for counselors unanimously voted against it. So basically Was named by the founders of the area that settled there. That's black Brooke Supervisor John Douglas, who was at the meeting but didn't have a vote. None of the counsellors returned to request for comment. Douglas Saysthe Hamlets named far predates World War two and came from the Sanskrit word meaning well being the foresighted geometric character that represents the swastika has been used for thousands of years in Indian religions and seen as a symbol of good luck. Of course, That meeting was overshadowed beginning in the 19 thirties with the rise of Adolf Hitler, who co opted the swastika as a symbol for Nazism and anti Semitism. Douglas says. This is not the first time the Hamlets name has been scrutinized. There was concern that due to the Germans that everything that people may I have a different outlook on the name and some of the residents that were from that area actually fought or two and refused to change the name just because Hitler tried to tarnish the meaning of swastika. Douglas says the council didn't see a reason to change the name despite its widespread use as a symbol of hate and white supremacy today, I think that probably Maybe some viewpoint that it's associated with a butt that I believe there's others that do not associate it with. Hey, did the Hindus in the booth and All them today erase it from their religious history because of the Germans, Al Kamo. The cyclists who submitted the request was disappointed by the town's reaction. I didn't expect a quick, apparently quick, unanimous vote to reject the proposal. Social media response to the decision has been murkier, with some locals of the region bristling on Facebook at an outsider from New York City trying to meddle in rural affairs. But Malcolm Oh says he simply wants more people to see the Adirondacks for its natural beauty and deep history history, he says, at odds with the meaning of swastika today
'Boys State' Helps Teens Learn How Politics Work — Perhaps A Little Too Well
"This is fresh air, want a glimpse into a potential future candidate for elected office? Look no further than the new documentary called Boy State. It's about an annual event in my government for high school students sponsored by the American Legion. By the way, Bill Clinton and Cory Booker went through the program. Boy state begins streaming Friday on Apple, Plus our film critic Justin Chang has THISS review. Since they were founded in the 19 thirties by the American Legion, the boys, state and Girls state programs have been giving high schoolers a practical education in how government works. Students in every state are chosen to take part in a weeklong summer experiment in which they must form their own representative democracy. As we learned from the opening credits of the terrific new documentary Boys State. No Clinton, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh and Cory Booker are just a few of the program's famous alone's A film, directed by Amanda McBain and Jesse Moss, focuses on the Texas boy state event that took place in June 2018. We see the roughly 1200 participants arriving in Austin. Where they are randomly divided into two political parties, The federalists and the Nationalists. Those names carry no agenda. It's up to both parties to hammer out a platform, choose their leaders and then run against each other in a week long election campaign. McBain and Moss throw us into this mark government exercise without much preamble or explanation of the rules of the game. My politics itself. The action can be a little confusing. Unlike politics, it's never boring, mainly because the movie wisely focuses on a select few participants. Either. The filmmakers were extremely lucky and their choice of subjects or they shot so much footage that they were able to isolate the most compelling personalities. In any event, the four young men, we spend the most time with all in that playing key roles in the experiments, nerve wracking outcome. Most ambitious of the bunch is been the Federalists Party chair who's willing to do anything to win votes, including smearing the Nationalists on Social media. Dennis, politically conservative. He has a Ronald Reagan action figure to prove it. And he despises what he sees as the liberal tendency to divide people along lines of race, gender and disability. Then speaks from some personal perspective. He lost both his legs to meningitis when he was three. Care of the Nationalist Party hails from the opposite end of the political spectrum. Progressive black teenager originally from Chicago. Renee knows he stands out in this mostly white, conservative Texas field. He also stands out on merit. He has a seasoned politicians command of rhetoric and can deftly out argue any opponent. It is also capable of calling for party unity, as he does in an early speech. My grandmother told me a few things you have to have faith, hope and a bit of a pissed off attitude. I want to be civil and represent a whole working body. And we're gonna take the example of a plane body. It has two wings left one, right one. We're not gonna pick one. We're going to stay in the middle, because we're not intolerable party where one that is palatable to all. And so as long as we're able to keep this plane of foot with a healthy right wing in a healthy left wing, we have the ability and the capability to pummel any fairless into the ground because we're the only party that's where voting for because it's this party that's going to represent every individual. If Rene has the sharpest mind and tongue and boy state, its heart and soul belonged to Steven A fellow nationalist party member. Stephen becomes an underdog in the race for governor, the highest elected office. Like Rene Steven stands out. He's the son of a Mexican immigrant, and he counts Bernie Sanders among his political heroes, his humility on the campaign trail and his stirring honesty in front of a microphone. Prove irresistible to the crowd. Again and again, he invites his fellow party members to tell him what issues are most important to them so that he could be a better truer representative for their concerns. We see these young men debating a lot of issues, especially gun control. There's a lot of talk about protecting the Second Amendment. But there are also counter arguments from students like Steven, who have clearly been shaken by the sheer number of school shootings. Another much discussed. Issue is abortion, which leads to one of the film's most revealing moments. A nationalist gubernatorial candidate named Robert, who's running on a strict pro life platform. Admits on camera that he secretly pro choice. Sometimes you've got to say what you've got to say in an attempt to win, he says. That's politics. Indeed, it is. And while the filmmakers are working from a mostly neutral fly on the wall perspective, their attitude toward the boy state program feels ambivalent. At best, Deliberately or not. The experiment seems to bring out a lot of the flaws of America's political system itself. Personal attacks, dishonest tactics and conflicts that hinge moron popularity than substantive policy debate. It's undeniably inspiring to see so many young men with bright, engaged minds and the best of them, as we see from the end of the movie have already gone on to impressive new accomplishments. But it's also dispiriting that so many of them have already learned to view politics in the most cynical way possible as the game to be won by any means necessary.

New Looney Tunes Series Hits HBO Max, With New Music
"Bugs Bunny is back white BJ Wiedemann, who does her theme music, The West Go a weapon in his pal Start anew. Looney Tune Siri's on HBO, Max. And it wouldn't be loony tunes with that loony tunes. The soundtrack album for the New Syriza's Out, Tim Grieving has the story. The new Looney Tunes still opens with that theme. They wouldn't dare change that, but everything that follows needed a new composer. There was certainly intimidating. Joshua Moshier is one of two composers for the new Looney Tunes. I Come at this from jazz background, and when you learn to play that music, you just embody the language of these musicians that you look up to. And so I really approached Carl stalling the same way Carl Stalling was the big goon of cartoon scoring. He started with silly symphonies at Disney, but he made his name a Warner brothers starting in the 19 thirties, where he scored more than 700 cartoons. Stalling applied. The same techniques had learned as an organist accompanying silent films reacting and improvising toe onscreen antics and using existing classical pieces and popular Theo Orchestra runs upstairs tiptoes and gets bonked on the head along with the characters no matter what you anyway, Don't you even know I already have one. John Powell is the Oscar nominated composer of animated features like How to Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda, Even though he's not part of the new Looney Tunes. He feels Carl Stallings influence so strongly that he uses a sort of Richter scale with directors that he calls the stalling number, You know. So if you say Okay, we only need a story number of two here. That basically means, you know, Tone it down. Don't hit things don't don't go for the musical juggler Calm down, but if madness and shoes in the cartoon world Why not have fun with it? So new Looney Tunes composer Joshua Moshe had some acne sized shoes to fill, and even though he's never scored a show like this before He's actually been preparing for a while. I was always experimenting with how could I do a Carl stalling kind of sound on my own, even going back to college, and I had some experiments that I found on old hard drive said. I threw together on a riel motion submitted that really in an open casting call and got the job. He recorded a full orchestra on the Warner Brothers lot for the 1st 2 cartoons, and for the rest, he had a chamber ensemble of six players at Capitol Studios. There's cartoons like the road runner.
