Guinea worm eradication effort enters ‘most difficult’ phase
"The Carter center says only 13 human cases of Guinea worm disease were reported worldwide last year. In 1986, Guinea worm infected 3.5 million people. There's a lot of discussion about how the last mile of an eradication program is the most difficult. People who drink unclean water can ingest parasites that can grow as long as three feet. The warm incubates for up to a year before painfully emerging, many times through the feet or other sensitive parts of the body. Adam Weiss, with the Carter center, tells the AP they are close to the end of Guinea worm, but not close enough. It is going to be a very long and arduous last mile. Part of the eradication work is training people to filter and drink clean water. Also, those who have had it are telling their stories. They're generally is kind of a fear of how bad it is to get Guinea worms. Weiss says Guinea worm is poised to be the second human disease to be eradicated after smallpox. I'm Ed Donahue

Is the Transfer Portal Good for College Football
"Coach, do you think it's going to, I worried, and I said to my colleagues, my interlocutors, they're off the record. I'm not going to tell you they are that places like Ohio State have an advantage. And so I don't really, I'm not sure I want the portal to go away or the NIL to go away, but they countered that a lot of kids are being approached by a lot of agents and one of them talked about a high profile transfer. Is that actually happening is NIL causing kids to enter the portal in your opinion to a significant degree and is that bad for the game? There's no question that's happening. You saw the best receiver in America, Lee Pitt went to USC and I have some friends at USC that were aware of is certainly was that that they were, you know, listening to what's available to them. And I guess in the capital in the capitalistic society, that's a more power to them. That if you can, you know, it's no different than a college coach or a talk show host. You have a chance to better your family. That's your business. But is it good for the game of football to just share a quick story with you that I was a graduate assistant in 1986 at a house state woody Hayes was still alive Earl Bruce was a coach. I'm 21 years old and he walked in and talked about the culture of our House state number one is a premium placed on education. He threatened every one of our jobs if our players didn't graduate. Number two was toughness you and that was the toughest team all those wins and number three was team first selflessness and you sit here and look, here we are in 2022 and a lot of the recruiting is now based upon what's the best offer, you know, it's not about education. And unfortunately, I think there's still a lot of about education, but the stories I'm hearing from, excuse me, colleagues, is that a lot of this is based upon the highest bidder.
What Is the Value in Reading the 'Great Books'? Jeremy Tate Explains
"What is kind of the value would you say of reading things like the great books to people of any age? Yeah, it's a great question. I'd recommend it if you want to go kind of a more formal route, great colleges like hillsdale offer a bunch of free classes that you can take. In order to be doing this with, it can be intimidating and you pick up by yourself, a copy of the Odyssey. Hopefully you can read it and enjoy it, but it can also mean falling away. I think the great books this tradition is meant to give birth to the great community. CLT is right down the street from St. John's college in Annapolis. It's a great book solid if you're interested in a great gradual program. It's amazing for teachers. But what you're doing is you're reading together the very best of what has been thought and said, you're reading Plato, you're reading Arizona. You're reading Ben Franklin. You're reading the texts that have truly stood the test of time. And you're discussing them in groups of people who span the political spectrum who are atheists who are the who are Catholics, who are Muslim, and learning to talk about the things that really matter most with different groups of people. So a couple of quick recommendations if I could. That are not classics, but I think to understand kind of what has happened, the book I would recommend first and foremost would be Allen's bloom, the closing of the American mind, which is now almost 40 years old as 1986. But Alan bloom is a professor at the University of Chicago. And during his 40 years from the late 40s until the 80s, he witnessed this seismic change in the kind of students that were arriving to campus. And in the course of a few hundred pages, he impacts kind of what was happening, a new book is also out called the battle for the American mind. David Goodwin, Pete hegseth. It's a great book. And it talks about how really intentional and really kind of radical, not just Democrats, but radical fringe progressives were able to grab hold of things like accreditation, things like teacher certification and really have come to dominate a lot of the Ed schools in the United States,
Dr. Keith Rose's Initial Takeaways From the 2022 Midterms
"Is your initial take from the midterms? Well, Charlie, I think that the liberals, the Democrats, were very strategic. And the elections that they targeted. I think a lot of us expected something more, but if we really go to a 100,000 feet and look at it, we didn't have control of the media. We didn't have control of the overall narrative. I think more people showed up to vote in these midterms. That's been shown than anything else. But we're not seeing the results of those folks showing up. And I think we need to ask ourselves why. I think there's a ways to explain it. Looking at the different amounts of money that went into the races, but there's also some things that defy any rational explanation, and that's kind of why I sent you that paper. If you were planning it out, it makes a lot more sense to see it written out on down on paper. How you would structure something to make people not or believe their line on it. Yeah, so let's talk about it silent weapons for quiet wars. What is this? It's a paper that was found in 1986 by a defense contractor from General Dynamics. I'm doing some more research on it. And I'm not finished with the yikes. I'm talking to a lot of folks I know on the east coast. But my understanding is it was found in one of those big IBM copiers. You remember the ones that are half the size of your garage that a lot of people had, the really big ones, like 6 feet long, four or 5 feet high. And the guy had bought it. I believe like a government surplus cell for parts. And when he started taking it apart, he found this document inside. And the document is purported to be made back in 1979. I've looked at it. I've read through it. And back in 1986, if you would look at it back then or back during cold wartimes, you might think, well, this could be Russian disinformation. It'd be easy to just blow it off. But looking at it now with the events that have happened and this is talking about the second industrial revolution and now we're into the fourth industrial and the way they outline everything that's going on in this paper will make your blood run cold and because it talks about what they want to do. It talks about how they're doing it, who they're using to do in it. And then you add in big data capture in the Internet and it's put this project on steroids and it's exactly what we're seeing. I mean, you can say it was misinformation, but it's not misinformation when I'm basically, it's like I was given the advanced copy of what they were going to do in 2022.

It cools down your organs too much. They'll read about it, read about it. Just read something for once in your life, will you? Excuse me? Just read something. Here we go. Here we go. Let's just have an album from 86, please. Holy God. Here we go. I don't want to go. I know how to read. Okay, okay, can you read your notes and give me an album from 1983? From 1986, I'm not saying that I love the album by any means, but I think it's another bad turning point for a band, and that that is genesis put out invisible touch. Yes, they did. Not a great record, but I will tell you, I'll give you an alternative that was actually a great record, which was XTC skylarking. Were you a fan of this by any chance? I liked XTC. Yeah, one of the first, they were actually one of the bands that got me caught up in really caught up in the new wave. They kind of put it over the top. Elvis Costello with watching the detectives kind of broke down the barrier for me. That opened the door from the actually. In 81, they came out ecstasy came out with making plans for Nigel and I just thought that fucking song. I'd never heard anything like that. What a great fucking song. And I was like, this band is pretty fucking good. I have to tell you, one of my biggest concert gaffes mistakes in Jack concert history, the police were playing the orpheum theater back in the day. I think it was on the second album. There were regarded the blank tour. And instead of seeing the opening band, we stayed out in the alley and drank in the opening band was XTC. XTC. Not a band that tours very often have been toward in years because Andy Patridge is notorious in terms of his stage fright, but great band, great record. And I think the big song that was off of that record, very controversial that people might remember is dear God. Yeah. Yeah. Good song. Good message. Great song. Yeah, yeah. Another great album that came out with a great song that I think is, it's a timeless song. If you grew up in the 80s, is the Pet Shop Boys, please. That's a great album. And it comes with the instant classic West End girls, which I never, ever, ever get sick of that song. It's a great to them. Never get sick of that song. West End girls. We used to, everyone used to piss on it because it was the Pet Shop Boys. And you're not listening to the fucking music. You're going by the name of the group and they were pop and kind of dance. But still, they put out a lot. How were they in concert? They were good, you know, sonically, they sounded great in some great songs. You know, not very dynamic in terms of, you know, performance and you say this, I think, just last week. You know, that they just kind of do their thing I have to tell you. I think I probably would have, I thought it was good. But I probably would have appreciated it more if it were this indoors and more like oh, you saw them outdoors? They were under a tent. You know, you know, you know the big, you know, the big white tent in Boston harbor. Yeah, yeah. I think now it's called the leaders pavilion or something. It's changed names like a billion times. But the other thing is they went on after new order. Yeah. And I thought new water, you know, we're far more interesting, you know, it wasn't nearly as pre programmed as the pet shop was. And again, the Pet Shop Boys were great. They were electronica. They were an electronic event. Yeah, they were great, you know, but what I see them again probably not. I would, but again, I saw them in kind of an intimate, so to speak, like how you put it in an orpheum type situation, and that's the kind of difference. That's kind of different for you, right? Because you say that you don't see bands more than once very often, right? Where there's a small handful that I like that I will, I've seen more than once. Yeah, like you're going to the gorillas and you've seen the gorillas. Yeah, a couple of times. Yeah, yeah. So, and I've seen corn a bunch of times. You two. ZZ-Top, which I won't see anymore. There's a small handful compared to the amount of groups that I've seen, of course, not as much as you, but you have a lot of ten, 12, 15 times. You too, 26 times. Yeah, yeah, I wouldn't do that. I wouldn't I wouldn't see them. But this is so this is.

How John Miller Got Inside John Gotti's Interview Armor
"John said he noticed a chink in Gotti's armor. You know, John was always afraid of electronic surveillance equipment inside his club, so he would hold meetings with the top members of his family. Like I said, walking around the block. And John Miller thought that meant that a halfway around the block, he was as far as possible from ducking back in the club. So he set a plan in motion. And the plan was we bring four camera crews. That's a lot for a story on a news show. For camera crews, that leaves two crews to tussle with Gotti's bodyguards, and then still leaves two other crews to talk to John. And the plan worked brilliantly. So one night, 1986, John Miller's got full cruise state around the corner from Gotti's club, the first time he comes around the block, he's got four of his men with him. And that was too evenly matched for John Miller's taste. So they left. The next time he comes around, he's with just two guys. Frankie Lucas you tremendous captain very respected captain. They call Frankie lox and Sammy the bull. John Miller gives the signal to move in. It was like clockwork. First camera crew approaches and Sammy of bull and Frankie locks, they spring into action and they block the camera lens, just like they knew they'd do. Doubles back, but he walked straight into the other camera crew, Frankie lodge took off after that one. Then the other two crews moved in, so they had them dead to rights. The monsters knew it, right? So John Miller's thoughts that pose a series of polite questions about John Gotti and the mafia, which John declined to answer. Frankie loaves and Sam the bull is still running after all the cameras, but too many to cover. Some guy tells them an Italian stop. Knock it off. So there they are. Four camera crews, John Gotti the boss, the underboss, the console, Frankie locks, and John Miller walking down a quiet street in Little Italy, you're just chatting. And all John Gotti said was, you know, John, I always treated like a gentleman. Always like a gentleman, John, you're not acting like a gentleman. And John says, look, mister Gotti, most of the time, my crews and I end up rolling around the sidewalk with your crew. And that's not sold generally either. So they made a deal that night. That John Miller could approach John Gotti and ask him anything. He might not answer, but everybody would be polite. And I said, wow, that's fucking cool.

"Also weren't terrible, but it just none of it was hit the mark. Yeah. The tremors films were just talking about. After the third one, they did a prequel back in the west and it was a good idea. But it didn't trip my trigger. I keep watching him because not great termer films. More than good. And with over the trimmers one, I think it's so funny because not saying low budget. But they're not having the budget that any of the trimmers movies are having. Tremendous movies. Yeah. I mean, those are just more aliens or aliens. Multi-million dollars. So it's like, for me when you see something like a tremors you're just like, okay, just keep going, who cares? It's funny, whatever inclusion of $3 million who gives a shit. But when you see a terminator an alien figure you're like, wow, you spent that much money on this? Yeah. Goddamn. And this isn't another film franchise, but two different series. Now the end and the extra lost and Game of Thrones have tainted my opinion of the rest of it. They both start out great. But I don't necessarily want to go back and start them again, knowing how disappointed can be at some of the endings. Yeah. I mean, it's like starting a great ice cream no, and then it gets really bad at the bottom. Oh, yeah. It's gonna turn. So do you even want to start that ice cream? Yeah, that's fair. I would. I'll be honest. Yeah, you still do it. I'm gonna start it anyway. Yeah. That makes you sad, though. Yeah. You have to. So there's been another episode of sentiment. Yeah. It Travis bud. Taylor owns a hell, I'm Todd wofford. Next week, we're going to do Friday night. And my pick, I love this film. Yes. This is another all time classic film. We will have Sean Jordan back next time.

I'm Muppet to take Manhattan was one of them. They need more Muppet Halloween movies. Yeah, you're not kidding. Does fraggle rock have a Halloween episode maybe you just do that? Yeah, we can go back. I think this is all based on how I'm not sure. But yeah, and then the second one is braveheart, which is a great movie. Great Halloween flick. It is. It's not really braveheart.

"I don't know because the other thing. I guess that they did in. The adaptation is that the novel is more of like Chris's story and the d- intentionally with the narration and the divisive You know richard dreyfuss thinking about his childhood and in terms of his own children they use that to deliberately centered a story on gordo which is how they. I guess this is all go- last minute kind like on filming decision as i. Why don't we have. We'll go for the gun and it just made so much sense When you're changing the perspective of the movie sure and that's the thing. That's what i think is so amazing about like adaptations is like the choice to like. Well we want this to be a little bit more. Relatable slits centered on kid. That's a writer. And because we got the obvious hook there and like the that little butterfly flap ends up changing the end in a way that so satisfying. Never done that if you hadn't chain pov. I just love that. He's just so let's make it more relatable by making more about the writer and this is like the writer thing to do right it. This is exactly what you said about your childhood. Assume that like all kids have the same childhood. I have writers assume oh writer is default position for human beings. So let's write about that and it's also me when that happened it's also telling like centered on the middle class kid right. That's just on on hard times. Because his all american brother died in a jeep accident. And he's slumming with the hoods because he's more relatable because we don't get the kids. Yeah because what. The fuck is rob reiner. Has you going to identify with the guy lake. He grew up in hollywood and he wasn't chasing bodies across train tracks and shit hanging out with felt crazy. People like george kelvin. A rob reiner more of a moon or accuser. Do you think had.

I've i've seen the walking across the the You know train tracks hold each other's shoulders and the pie eating contests had i didn't have that was coming. I was coming okay. And you know. I know all these young actors but and i kind of loosely aware of the plot. But i i was just really blown away by this film Like it almost frame by frame minute by minute. Like oh yes. I understand why this is. Well regarded and brilliant and is expected to be funny and i thought it'd be sad at the end by wasn't really prepared for how melancholy the whole fucking thing was. Yeah it is punched by some humor. That happens these kids. And thank god or the movie would be oppressive. It'd be something like watching it on. Just pennywise the clown but It does have a lot of humor but like just just the way. These kids lives are is just kinda depressing and It's a sad like some these these childhood relevant revelations that they had like you know like like a kid who's his grown up in poverty from disadvantage childhood. There's a lot of abuse and trauma. But he hasn't quite given up faith in institutions in in society. And then when he does last fucking heartbreaking man. And i was also these kids are just killing it. Yeah i i've rarely seen better child actors And then i really a method to that madness that we can maybe talk about because that's what it was also so then so i. I had a really good time watching this movie in like a cathartic kinda like i. I laughed. I cried and did other things very late. There's a found this movie very relatable because You know my child in the late seventies and eighties. I live next to a train tracks into a big woods with a creek. And i've walked miles down with my and i had a bunch of hard-luck friends that you know. A bunch of losers misfits a hung around with so i. I got a lot of what this movie is pitching. But then i actually i looked at the making of and i'm like man i don't know if i if i subscribe to all of these method acting choices. Choices are being made and then you read about like corey. Feldman childhood and river phoenix childhood. And yet he's picked for their childhoods because they so closely resembled what was screen. And when you see what's on screen And what cory like corey feldman description of like how he got like it's just really bleak so it was like another is a double-whammy where it's like.

"This movie also has one of my favorite tropes which is the good guys playing cat-and-mouse and this like very complicated industrial factory type setting and he gets the drop on a guy and he just turns a random valve And it vince. Fire on the guy. Like fifteen feet away. Yeah turned up the cass. Turn up always. How does he like in the factory like that. There's a million valves just once. I want to see someone turn valve and it sprays them with scalding. Steam kills them. That's how you do charity or sprayers sprays sprays something like two hundred feet. Away has no relation to this thing always like not only the pinpoint precision and the way you can. Yeah yeah i. I just thought that's so funny. It's just turns a little little little valve gout aflame done the other extraordinarily confusing scene to me. Not just the carpeting and the mopping. There's a scene where he comes home. There's like a a group of dudes parked in a way where he can't get into his normal parking spot and so he just like rolls his car up and pushes them out of the way with it and you know they get up and they start to getting his face and he's just so little all your worst nightmare whatever and he rips the guy shirt off as fuck you and walks away and when you see the guy's chest he's wearing a microphone in like tape like you would think a wire right so he's wearing this microphone. I don't know if that is part of the filming the movie and they needed to give this guy's audio so they taped a mike to his chest or if he is like an undercover cop. They never or like an informant. Who like going in with a wire to catch somebody. They never explain it. It's just like yet one of the things. Because because i noticed that the next time you see like this guy's like moving his car and being extremely asked his seat the co brady like. Are you doing there. Colonel ago on like that must be something in the thirty minutes that they cut. Because yes i wanna talk about that. They didn't they didn't cut this so much to get rid of x rating. That was part of it. But like i guess this movie was up against top gun and stallone's i oh my god this movie so much better than our movie. I made a turtle gonna lose my shirt. What they're gonna do. Apparently the time tested solution back then to make a movie more competitive is cut it towards under ninety minutes screen. It seventeen times a day and try to get as much of your money up front before everyone finds out. It's absurd that was like and they. They showed several examples of that. Like when i was reading the background this movie. It's like much like the they did with this movie this so apparently that was hollywood's thing as well. If the movie sucks were just gonna cut. We're gonna make it even worse for gonna shove it out there and hopefully suckers will see it on opening weekend and by the time they read ebert saying. Stay away then. We're already have most of our money back but like there's tons of small continuity errors like that where there's like characters that clearly are supposed to be more important than the are they just go nowhere and i also i forgot the other thing about. It is as soon as like the jig is up. And she pulls the fire alarm. People just swarm from everywhere right. It's it's played like this slasher flick. Where like he's stalking her silently through these darkened halls completely devoid of any human life. They're the only two people in the entire building and then she pulls out alarm and hundreds of people swarm out like in full suits. It's not like these fuckers. Were neo sleeping patients or something in hospital against no there were executive level people from this hospital just in a patient's room. There were numerous doctors and nurses everywhere. These hallways look like times square. All this insane man. It's absolutely insane. That whole scene is bonkers. Do you want you also something bonkers right to begin in the movie where they switch from the intro to the actual movie itself. There's this angel of the city montage where they introduced. Nelson's in grid but for the first minute of that intro. They keep showing random flashes of these robots. That are kook clearly built out of like teakettles and irons and shit like this. This is an art project and they keep on shown flashes of that and flashes a co brady shaking guys down. And then like oh. This is part of a fashion shoot. But i actually thought i was having a stroke or something for thirty seconds at montage like what the fuck going on with us so bizarre and they also show like in the montage. They show like the brass knuckles with the knife in the spikes auto and the just the dudes fist holding it up. It's like yeah us. It is pretty iconic knife. I know that there was a big fascination with those style knives around this time like. Oh my god look at this like you know. I mean hell i. I wouldn't wanna find a guy with a knife like this over also of these nicer so bad ass like why don't like every military in the world use them there. There must be a problem with a full brass. Knuckle spikes dear. Gutting knife combo that like either hurt yourself more often than you heard your enemy or something because probably yeah. It's gotta be something to it last thing. I got re- revolve around bridget. nelson is. There's a scene where she gets up and he's like can't you sleep and she's like no. I'm having trouble and like literally. He's a sitting five feet away from her watching her as he repeatedly breaks down cleans and racks than slides on his right. It's like i imagined trying to sleep.

"Is is the is the main body going to get meet hooked or is he going to get punched through one of the portals of hell. I was delighted when both happened. Simultaneously the meat hook grabs him and take some dell does and it's also like kind of like from a screenplay from a parody screenplay. It's pretty delicious that this guy's going on and on about how he's going to yale he's gonna go to hell and he's going to drag and like he's literally like this this this bar corpse on a is drug through what does look like a flaming portal's synonym straight to hell. So yeah he definitely definitely got that all. Those one liners connected into the action. And i like that. The the other like extremely obvious thing that i saw coming immediately i mean as soon as cobra steps out of his car in the very first seen that he's in i'm like oh okay. That match is going to be us later in the movie to bite some on fire. I expected it to be somewhat of more consequence. I guess beat. He just likes to sniper on fire when he's chasing him through growth. Not as big a deal. As i expected like light light the crazy psycho cop lydia or light up bribe brian. Whatever his name is night stalker light the night slasher light them up. You know. i was disappointed with who he lit up. Also i'm a little house in a factory. Full of fire flames everywhere. The heat has to be off the charts in this place. They just got an open. Barrel of super flammable liquid. Just sitting on a second story that he can dump on this. Yeah yeah that's that's probably has a thing to say that I wanna talk about the. You're right because it was anticlimactic. It was clearly something. I was looking forward to from the very first frame that sly had matched dangling out of his mouth. Yeah and especially since the lady psycho cop. The second in command. The axe murderers was kind of unceremoniously. Dispatched it was essential friendly fiery. Yeah they could've. But i feel like in this stage in the eighties. You can't just set a woman on fire screaming even if you establish her as being the number two of a sadistic satanic axe murderer cult like they're just like oh that doesn't play right in peoria. If you just set. This looks like a school mom on fire as they quentin tarantino's like you know after Yeah that's can get. You can absolutely brutalize an evil woman on film but back then. I think that's bad but it. It did feel unsatisfactory. It did feel like they. They use the one the best debts on just a a literally. Who dude. i think. This might be one of the first times in cinema that you've ever seen like a laser scope like a you know like What they call the show a red dot. You know where we're actually puts a puts a red dot on something that you shoot these these submachine guns were like this. Really odd brand of gun. I only like four hundred wherever made and then. They kind of came reissued in the nineties. They tried to make a comeback but they were never very successful and use a very odd design. But they're extremely iconic like. That's the thing i remember about. This movie His mirrored sunglasses and his like really cool machine pistol looking thing with the laser sight on it. So that's just alone. Reached out to the manufacturer of that gun and said hey. I want you to reissue. The gun and i wanna be credited as co manufacturer of this weapon for this movie. And they said yes. I wonder when submachine gun started becoming dominant in action movies because up. Yeah usually it was like real like assault rifles machine guns and things like that and you didn't see start seeing the machine pistols and stuff and maybe die hard is die hard where you started seeing like the mp. Fives and you know. That's a good question. I don't really know. Because i remember we were watching. It might have been if i'd have been the first lethal weapon when they shown a swat team and it was just essentially you know cops and slightly different uniforms. But they're just using like In sixteen and stuff you know. I wonder when everything got like really super tactical. Maybe this is like when the first ones where i guess. Read heat and arnold schwarzenegger the year before us. This exact same gun which makes me think that size like i'll go to whatever whatever arnold had got gotta have it but like i wanted films like that started bringing it back to like. Oh smaller sleeker sexier more technical tactical futuristic looking guns. I have a proposition for you ok. Cobra is a christmas film. Oh jesus it apparently takes place entirely the week before christmas. There's tons of christmas lights christmas performances or christmas There's no christmas songs i would. That would seal the deal. We had this just even one jingle bell rock or something but like fifteen twenty percent of its running. Time involves christmas image. Imagery i think does it. I didn't notice any of it. Really the whole shootout in the beginning. There's christmas like this. The guy that gets shotgun collapses in the two different. Christmas trees wa. I did notice any. Or you're you're in midsummer grinch mode man your your your christmas radars burnt out. You're not you're not looking for it. Sure is why some things. I did notice though unlike this nurse. So there's a scene where anger is is in the hospital right and the night stalker nights slasher. Whatever is coming after in hospital. He's dressed as a janitor. He's got this mop bucket and he's roaming the halls looking for and the nurse notices. Hey that guy he's here awfully late to be mopping. That's a little strange. What she doesn't notice is it literally. This entire facility is carpeted bottom. Top like the whole fucking thing is carpet and the thing that she notices. Is that the mop guy. Is there too late. He's he's normal schedule mopping the floors. That's weird are you fucking kidding me. I don't know if they shot this in an office building or what. This is like kind of mistake. Only come about from like last minute. Production shit and somebody who like yeah. You know scouted the location but didn't read the script closely enough and didn't think about. Oh the guys got a mob. Maybe we should have played. It doesn't have carpet. Also hospitals famously. Don't have carpet. There's all tie for matter and blood spurting and you wanna be able to clean that shit in a way. You can't do like like what kind of maniac has a fully carpeted bathroom. I know i know people did and is in the seventies especially. Maybe maybe there was like a rash of carpeting in hospitals in the seventies as before people like wait a second line bucket. Why does the mop guy seemed normal except for his routine is off. Yeah yeah that's hard to explain really.

"It's it's ingrid and it's the leader of this death cult. I guess i don't know if she's a leader stock yet. The thought was a nice touch naming her stock stocking Yeah didn't even realize that. That's stephen and yeah so so it's really just like this woman is super fascinated. I was watching this movie and the first thing you see her in well aside from the montage which we can talk about. It really sucks There's this this photographer guy who's just basically trying to fucker. And is like trying to tell her in to sleeping with him and i get to thinking when cobra came around and you know his partners like oh she's odd. Oh she's real attractive. Gimme piece of that. This might she might be attracted him because he's the only guy who has not immediately tried to get into her pants the second they met her Because the rest of the guys in this movie are just like or drooling. Mouser running open. It's jim carey wearing the masks. Seeing cnn camera di as at the club for first time exactly rolling out turning into a wolf. Yeah and to the to the extent. That like i love. When like sh- stallone finally wears down at his masculinity or whatever and she's like quit fooling with the guns and come over here and get in bed with me and he puts his guns down kinda rolls his eyes and like i guess like he's this maximum resistant to it. Like yeah he. I don't know it's like this cheese just inexplicably fascinated by. But maybe you're right. He's the only guy who makes lame prop comedy based advances towards her rather than just crude. Come on baby wants us. Break me off a piece kind of advances so he he basically does the equivalent of telling her. She looked better if she smiled more by telling her like. Though that's too much.

"And you're right about the fact that it actually is funnier that they don't it's like Yeah it's funny in dr strangelove. That slim pickens didn't know that he's in a comedy and he's playing every scene like deadly serious and like. I think that that holds true for for cobra. Everybody here thought this is going to be like. Did you see the backstory in the lore of this of the production of this thing. Some of it. What what part of tasso. So sly stallone. Guy hired to star in beverly hills cop he was supposed to be the beverly hills cop but he got the script you know. He's a bit of a scriptwriter himself. You know got an oscar for a few turn good turns and rocky and sure He goes to work on it and he just takes out. All of the comedy and just keeps on pumping up to action pumping up the action. He submits the script to the studio. And they're like well. This is unfilmable loss like. Yeah yeah it is so violent. And it's so over the top and there's so many stunts like this is we we. We got a mid budget comedy and you got a big budget. Blockbuster you're trying to make here get the fuck outta here. you know. The rest is history when it comes to beverly hills cop but stallone kept on like you know there's something here there's something here and he essentially borrowed like a crime novel for like some kind of i don't know so people take it seriously. He found a week director that when he let him push around and essentially direct the hill itself. Oh god it's so ridiculous. And he made his over the top beverly hills cop. Like that's and you can see like once. You know that he this is supposed to be axel. Foley like the comedy. Dna kind of jumps out. And you can see where there were still kind of like you know the load engages in prop comedy in a bedside diner at one point and it's just the greatest. Yeah sean the eighties needed we talk about the story before we get into the heavy production stuff because there's so much the details of what. You're talking about our delicious but yell. Let's get to it. You i oh the story. This is basically. There is a cult of serial killers out there and it's seems to be widespread like they show a shot of people banging together axes twice in this movie. They show it and it cracks me up every time because it's so stupid them but they're like from all walks of life right did they're building. Some new world order thing were murdering. The week is like their strength and the goat around l. a. Doing that and cobra. Marian kober brady is called in because the normal cops can't handle him and so he's got to go. Lay down the law and laying. Alah means becoming a judge dredd and murdering a bunch of people. Yeah yeah and then you know like like a lot of the action moves at the time like they made it clear that these people are all guilty and they deserve it. Oh yeah they're all these murders axe murderers at that. Their literal crazed axe murders meeting and and talking about how. They're the shape of things to come and i guess the tension of the movie. If there is in fact any of that comes from a model who is a witness to some of these two to at least one of these murders and knows who the night slasher is can identify him. They're targeting her for death to protect themselves and cobra has to defend her and he takes her to the countryside. all hell breaks loose. Yeah that's really funny too because He's not very good at you know. The movie requires that there. They got this setup right you know. She's terrified that he's not going to be held protector. There's one man against this this highly armed with sophisticated axe murderer psychopath gang But the movie also requires because of its plot that he be kind of like just on the verge of losing her. You know like there's like three different attacks. They mount one at a hospital at the countryside. One and a hotel and like you know after the third one she asked what i think a reasonable person would ask like you know. How can you ensure that. I'm gonna keep you safe. And he's like just don't worry about it and she's like well you know they've actually got me like two or three times and he's like we just have to have faith and the camera pans. Brigitte nielsen and she gives. Like if i was directing a parody of this scene. Like a mcgruder type mcgruder type parody. I would direct her to act exactly like she does like. I can't believe i'm hearing what i'm hearing. And also this guy is like not very charming and they play him like it's played on this the the scene as if he's irresistible to women lang. Bridget got this ingrid or character. Is this this compulsion to like. Ask him about his history and hisself and like when she gets bored his partners right there to like prompt her with like leads like ask him about his name. It's girl's name is netflix right. But it's not is so there's only really like to women in this entire movie right. There's who were part of the movie other than like. Oh other people in the background whatever..

I wish or because years ago when we were living together we had. We were doing marathons of vat ass action movies from like the eighties and nineties. I wish this had been one of them instead. Of like the remake of robocop or something. Because that's bad movie. This is a very good bad movie that is basically a parody of itself and every action movie you've ever seen it's it's an unintentional parody of like dirty harry and death wish and all these like seventies eighties bad asses who were just taking the law into their own hands right that the cop who bins and breaks the law to get justice and it's it shit it's absolutely terrible but it is a hell of a lot of fun to watch. It reminds me. I'm so glad we actually locked that with this film yet. Because i thought it might just be a stinker and also i really we both kind of really wrestled over god for arnold.

I didn't think so fighter town. usa now nowadays. They don't in ninety seven. I believe it was. It's now a. Us marine corps air base and. They moved topgun to fallon in nevada. So they still hold top going to this day. But it's now held in nevada and california. Let's see here In next week get to the the first time we see The ensemble cast all the pilots during in the ready room. They're talking to you Gesture and fiber now. He mentions when he's going over What top guns for Aerial combat maneuvers dog-fighting. He says that was it. In korea that kill ratio is twelve. The one in vietnam dropped four to one. This is true. But i know early. Versions of the four which was prominent in vietnam. Didn't have a canon didn't have any guns so of course they had to be dependent on missiles that's all they had. Those are skewed numbers than so in the military fudge numbers. Oh no never. That's bad intelligence. Yeah why would they do that. Yeah never be careful. I might get nuked while. I feel like there was probably a lot more and i don't know that much about the korean war but i i know there wasn't a ton of of of aerial battles in vietnam as far as dog signings I mean i could be wrong about that. But i would assume that there would be more in korea With the plans that they had at the time in the traditional sense of dogfighting because the early sabres and whatnot. Didn't i don't believe that. Carry missiles carried rockets and guns they were gunning each other like were to style right. But with the advent of like the What is it. The phoenix and the Sidewinder going into vietnam. Everything be there was correct. Everything was dependent on missiles now later. Variants of the four did have a machine. Don could gun but early in the war correct because they run out of missiles screw. They have to go back so of court. Now here we see val kilmer All the other pilots in.

"While came. I was thinking six. But that's because of my. Like i said my mind is stuck on the edited version that i saw but seeing so much clint howard i would have to give it an eight really well. He not because it's an give it a seven and a half to an eight just because it's such a fun movie that now if you're looking to take it seriously then of the not gonna get hot but it's for what it is it's definitely falls into that eight zone to me. Give it probably a seven six seven seven. It's me personally. I wouldn't give it an eight is not that good. But you're you're definitely right. It is a. It's a fun movie to watch on a rainy day. Or if you just want to watch a really cool racine a car chase. This would be the movie to do it but it also just screams mid one thousand nine hundred eighty s does. That's one of the reasons. I love it. I mean even even that same when the car hop getting the burgers and everything that restaurant the whole vibe. That whole scene is stupid as it was just people talking just looking at the background and just kind of feel the atmosphere. Because i don't think they were acting. I think they've probably were just filming someone having lunch. What was funny. Is that like i said. That burger place didn't exist. They actually don't that for the movie in like 'cause the you see them cooking the burgers so they must have been stalled the grill while i wouldn't be too hard. It's probably propane powered. Right in. From what i understand. I think it's still there that the shell of that building. I think still exists. I don't think they've torn it down yet I know a lot of a lot of this was filmed. I believe it was outside of scottsdale. Arizona was According to internet movie database was tucson tucson. Okay you gotta admit the the desolate feeling 'cause for example. We've seen them job in their cars from that burger joint drive and then race to the mountains so my question is then later on when you see charlie sheen pickup carry in their. They're driving through the through town when gutter boy tried to run him off the road. What's the distance here amine.

"How to make build one of these cars yourself from scratch. I think at one point. I saw something that you could actually take do it with a dodge daytona. Yeah you can't Interfere you can actually build off of fear. Oh body to vero chassis right there in a while you want to. But there's actually quite a few kit cars that they they made to build off of the chassis. Because i think knowing gave a crap about pharaohs ironically you could actually There was a guy in florida. I think he was kissing me florida. He was actually building. Dashes form like complete nightrider conversion parts for him but it would still be a fiero but it would have like the nightrider nose cone on it and you can have the complete dash awhile and then like the upper consoles things nice but they were scaled for a fiero. His the the guy who designed this car is name. Was bob ackerman. He was one of the lead. Race designers for chrysler. Like i said he wanted to see if it was possible to take a mid size four-cylinder and turn it into a race car but he knew the only way to do this was the body had to be ridiculously aerodynamic in. That's why i think that's why this car is so popular. But so they. They gave permission to use the car in the movie. 'cause they they wanted the exposure his chrysler at one point was seriously thinking about putting this into production as something to go against like the corvette or a a high end sports car but when bob ackerman went to the premiere premier the movie in saw the movie he walked out midway through i guess he absolutely hated the movie but then years later he kinda relented and said the only reason people know this car exists is because of the movie the race. Just think about it i. I didn't watch a lot of who pays attention to unless you're a big race fan. Who pays attention to pace cars. At the beginning of the indy. Five hundred this brought this movie out to a bigger audience than the race. Did invol- if you look at now..

"That's disrespectful. Don't don't say if you look at his face and like his facial features you it makes you wonder if they used him for beavis. Now you mentioned it i can. I can kind of see that. But he's like. Is you like functionally retarded or something. I mean i think the i think they were. They were just burnt out. Druggy burnouts like proto meth heads. Proto method well. You got one guy drinking hydraulic fluid. Maybe they should have you know changed up their drug of choice. Yeah so everyone's hanging out at At big kay's burgers which interesting we did not exist when this movie was filmed that whole thing was built just for the movie. Same thing with the hotel across the street. Sorry i'm just kinda listening and kinda rethinking the entire movie because it. It's one of those things. It's so much sci-fi meets the seventy car chase movies where there's not a you know it's just watching and watching the cars and that's the biggest entertainment part of it. It's not so much that the characters are there. Why would agree. The cars are definitely the stars this movie but like when they do the initial chase for They race they race the race. The music they use was the first one they were using. It was an ozzy. Osbourne song wasn't it wasn't it wasn't secret loser. Secret loser was used in the very first race on the road with the daytona but in every race they have period rock music. And you gotta admit it's cool as hell yeah there. They're my favorite part. My favorite part of the movies was listening to the music and watching the cars. In fact i'm drawing blanks. Because i just watched it last week again to catch up given life has been rather stressful. So i'm probably didn't focus as much as i should have for doing a movie review but my mind just keeps going back to the cars and the music and not the characters except for clint howard's hair as she as he races the race dozen win he kills. Whoever he's racing against in fact. Augie fisher is the first one that i can't remember the actor's name i didn't write his i've never seen him in anything else. Have you guys not. I think it's griffin o'neal okay but he's killed and then of course we're introduced to the guy who is the best. One liners in this whole randy fucking quaid. Who plays the sheriff. I actually had a hard time taking him seriously. As the sheriff part of its voice and and the other part of it. It's like it's like cousin. Eddie's is trying to be a hard ass right. i was thinking it'd be noticed at the beginning of the movie as the comets or whatever go together forming up the car. Do you notice one of them. Blows through a sign that says you know. Re-elect reelect sheriff. Loomis with big pitcher raid equate at blows right through his face kinda makes me wonder did did he not get reelected in. That's why his real name is eddie. Later on his life goes to shit and we see him again in like a family vacation. John russ is gonna say wasn't when they first the first family vacation. The road trip wasn't he living in arizona when they founded came up two cousin. Eddie's inner too good question I have to go back and check it out..

"Facial. Pops up now the versions i have. It's kind of vague as to who it is. I mean you see kind of an outline of a face but you never really see the face in the blu ray version. They replace that in. It's obviously charlie sheen in that helmet when i'm thinking of this movie. I'm still when i watched the edited version for really embedded in my mind. The one thing they absolutely establish is peppered. Walsh is an absolutely fucking psycho sherline. Senator's name carey. She doesn't remember what happened to her. The night of the accident packard has told her that they were always together. I don't know if you guys caught that or not yeah. He's the creepiest most obsessive boyfriend. I think i've ever seen a film. There's a they all go down lake. For example they all go down to the river for the day. you know. They're floating on the water. And that's when charlie sheen meets his dead brother below he doesn't say anything about it. In fact the brother bill even says we're talking about cherilyn thing you know. She's she's gorgeous but you have to wear dark glasses to packer. Doesn't catch you looking at her because he'll go ape shit if you do you remember when him in her and charlie sheen floating down the river. You're talking. He's just standing at the end of the river. Yellen for her to come back. But everyone's afraid of it it goes back. I think the to my two favorite characters in this movie are skank in the gutter boy. Do you have packard's cronies you. Have you have skunked. That is he. Looks like a stereotypical punk from the eighties got colored mohawk. But what the fuck. He's always drinking like drinking like hydraulic fluid at one point and other time. He's drinking brake fluid right. He's drinking break fleet where he snigger. Or he's sniffen. Wd forty he was like inhaling it. It's like what the packers says to him his his you he says to him at one point he says get rid of that zombie picture drinkin- before it turns you into a mushroom. The first time you see him winter they stopped a couple on the road. He's drinking higher hydraulic fluid gourd tweaking dude. I'm like what the fuck. Why isn't he dead from drinking brake fluid in hydraulic fluid. Yeah never mind the fact that like you said he was often have. Wd forty some match them. And then there's his kennedy his side kick gutter boy. I don't know what this guy's problem is the prototype for beavis knob dude..

"Gonna race for the title for the title of the car eight. He almost loses. I did kind of surprise me because he what is it. Like seventy or like seventy six vet. He's driving something like that. In you know the engine souped. They raised him. He tries to kill him. Goes back and he ends up handing them off the title from there we see solo shot. I will say this wherever they filmed this. Somebody was gorgeous like straight highways. Going off in going off into the distance it was filled in arizona so as their you have charlie sheen driving up on a dirt. Bike plunged contentious. Charlie sheen is the reincarnation of a guy named jamie hankins. He was dating sherline fen while they were up by the river packers gang of comes in knocks. Her out kills him in throws him off a cliff in the back of a car in now. Charlie sheen is his reincarnated spirit. He's a wraith. Come back to take revenge on the gang.

This black is absolutely gorgeous. Car will get into this car. The dodge and this four interceptor. But they pull up next to the burger place and he tempts him to race in every time he races. One of these guys. He ends up killing him. The body comes out like there is are sucked out of their sockets. And there's no mark steinem. He stealing their souls. Because the first time you see the wraith in his outfit. It's like this black. Would you coach body armor guys. Yeah yeah yeah it was like it was like a prototype for the borg agassi that he's got the helmet on in. I don't know if you guys noticed this. But like around his arms his legs. He has these braces every time he kills. One one of these braces disappears while he's also got scars on him that he'll up a little bit like one on his neck yup in the four on his back where he got stabbed as it goes on he. Torments the group. I- i- jumping ahead here.
