"74" Discussed on The Past and the Curious

"Is no big deal and easy to get over. But the white or anything but white. Even when cooked, they remained perfectly clear. Much like an uncooked chicken egg. Many people certainly ate their fair share of see through omelets and gooey glass scrambled eggs, but many others elected to eat their eggs, baked into something else. You can imagine why clear goo breakfast wasn't the most appetizing way to start the day. Now as you can imagine, the boatloads of eggers sailing to the farallon islands hoping for eggs instead of gold, started to get in each other's way. There were arguments about who had the rights and who controlled what, and who the eggs actually belonged to. As you might guess, the mirrors who laid them didn't get a say in the matter. Men with short fuses did instead. They were confrontations arguments and ultimately gunfights, both on seaward boats and bird poop covered stones. Sir, I beg, put down the egg. This whole scene is a powder keg. I don't want to, but I'll be forced to break your leg. And you'll soon be walking with a peg. Greg, I know you, and I know your wife, Meg. But I wouldn't trade an egg for all the California nutmeg. Or even the patent rights for the jpeg, whatever that is. Very well, you third rate quag and a Philip egg. What a strong reference to Herman Melville's novel, Moby dick. I commend you. Nevertheless, this is an egg war. Egg war. And so it went. People died fighting over eggs and the profits that they would bring back on the mainland. Ships were hijacked, cannons were fired, eggs were stolen. It went on for years. Other than the birds, there was one other thing on the island. A lighthouse that helped ships navigate their way into San Francisco harbor. It was crucial to the safety and commerce of thousands of people. The lighthouse keeper usually snagged a few mirror eggs, just in case has food supply ran out. In 1860, a mob of eggers who were unwilling to share finally kicked the lighthouse keeper off the island just to get the few eggs that he might have pilfered. So finally, the American government got involved. They had no choice. The lighthouse was essential to America's well-being. But not getting the whole kerfuffle about the eggs, they just sent an early version of the coast guard to make regular rounds. Occasionally, they'd chase people off the island and take their weapons, but the egging went on. It went on until the 1880s with drama and resistance and egg fights aplenty. But there was a bigger reason than violence that brought an end to the egg wars. By this time, of course, farms had popped up all over California. And on those farms they had plenty of chickens. These chickens laid non see through eggs to feed the ever growing number of hungry, and most appreciative Californians. So the price of Muir eggs dropped. And it became less and less lucrative to risk one's life on the pointy poopy rocks over the deadly waters. So into the decades long brutal war over eggs that no one really enjoyed eating. Today, the farallon islands off the coast of California are still home to thousands of mirrors, but the population still hasn't recovered from the constant loss of eggs that they suffered two centuries ago. We'll all right, thank you all for listening to episode 74. It was a fun episode to put together all about eggs. Who knew? There would be so many interesting and unusual stories. Well, me, that's why I wrote an episode about it. But anyway, maybe you didn't. Maybe you did. Maybe you knew these stories. Maybe you have a faberge egg sitting next to a cupcake in your kitchen. I don't know. You might want to go check on that. Now is the time though, where I'm going to thank Patreon sponsors because you guys keep it moving. Thank you so much. Colleen Roberts, I got your gift, just today, I think. That was this morning as I remember. So thank you so much. That was really, really swell of you. I appreciate it very much. And Isabelle, who just turned 9 on the 27th of December, I need to wish you a very happy birthday. Happy birthday, Isabelle, I'm so glad that you're out there listening, and I hope you had a good one. And next I need to thank and give a shout out to adeline and Amelia in Corning, New York, which was featured on an episode of the past and the curious all about the telescopes if you all recall. Hello to you, adeline, and Amelia. I'm so glad that you enjoy the show and I appreciate you lending your ears and learning about history with me. It's been a lot of fun and I'm so glad that you're along for the ride and the same can be said for Sam and Owen of media, Pennsylvania, salmon, Owen, hello to you, shout outs, and I hope you have a great new year and continue listening. I'm so glad that you're out there. That goes for everybody. Now, if you want to help the past in the curious one of the best things you can do is just tell somebody about the show. It's really helpful. It's really important. You can leave a review wherever you listen, or you can just tell somebody with your mouth because that's what mouths are for, don't you know. If you do leave a review, I just want to point out that this show is free. And I don't have a team of people with me. I just do this in my spare time, which I have almost none of anymore because I have two small kids. So it is a struggle for me to put this show together. I know that there are people who want more shows. I know. But I don't have a team of people just a guy. Who likes doing this? For you. Thank you all very much. And I hope you have a great new year. January is bird month. So, you know, maybe listen to this episode, the egg episode, and we have two other episodes about birds. So that could be fun. Fun way to spend national bird month. Happy new year, everybody.

Whatever their videos they put out and the sound very good and they're various feel good, a conferences and these kinds of things. The World Economic Forum at bottom, they're unspoken or let's just say it's not unspoken, but quietly spoken, agenda is depopulation. And this began with the predicament of mankind in 1970 and the fact that Kissinger and 74 is pushing in a classified document, a classified report to the president of the United States, depopulation. And he says, look, we need a global version of Planned Parenthood. And now in this document, he's speaking quite openly because he's not anticipating this is or ever going to be read by people like you and me. But you have this agenda being pushed in a very big way. Now, the Kissinger connection is important because Kissinger was a professor at Harvard's Kennedy school of government. And guess who one of his star pupils was? I was going to guess either Satan or Adolf Hitler and I realized neither of those really would make sense.

Desantis, Trump, whomever, no one announces 2024 until we get through December 6th. Do you see the former president? A need for him to go to Georgia? I think we've got to make strategic calculations. Governor desantis, I think he should be welcome to the state given what happened last night. You've got to look at the realities on the ground and Herschel Walker. We've got to win the Senate. That's it, guys. So we got to win the Senate, but the man who got 70 more 74 million votes shouldn't go to Georgia. What's the logic there Caylee?

And I went, oh, I forgot that my crotch doesn't look like other women's crotches. Because you're a dude. His mind doesn't look like a little Barbie pocket. And I thought, okay, Dylan, you have some options here. Number one, you can stop wearing clothes that fit like this. And in just fine looser fitting items. Number two, I can do a talk, which is going to have to be a whole other video, but it's very painful and involved about, or number three, I just normalize it, and I wear clothes like this, and we all just normalize women having bulges sometimes, 'cause we're coming up on bikini season, baby, and you might see a bulge or two. So lies the bulge, we are normalizing the women can have bulges and that's okay. We're not gonna stare at their crotches while they're wearing their little shopping shores at the mall.

Kim Kardashian Revealed She Failed the 'Baby' Bar Exam More Than Once

"A few weeks ago, during another episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, I don't know if you saw Kim Kardashian revealed to her sister's court in Chloe that she took her first year law students examination, which is also called the baby bar exam, and she's got a four 74, which was 86 points lower than the 5 60 she needed to pass. And she blamed the test results on, you know, I raised four kids on my own. I'm running a business during the pandemic and getting COVID, she also said the test is harder when you're trying to cram four years of law school into three and it's just as encouraged her to take the test at the next possible time. And it sounds like Kim took their advice except this time. She managed to score even lower. She got a four 63, and then she finally revealed that she again failed the baby bar. She said, I failed, fuck. I've failed. I know, she cried last week about the marriage that Kanye, it is a 40 year old woman saying, fuck, I failed. She's going to law school online. And she told her lawyers on the phone about her second attempt at the test. She said, this is really annoying. Pretty much the same thing, but a little worse than the first time I took it and failed. Now she didn't say when she took the exam and she didn't specify when she might take it again. If she chooses to do that, but she really wants to be a lawyer, so she probably will. Now a store of 5 60 is a 70%. Which means we're dealing with 800 points. A four 63 works out to about 58%. So she got at least half the answers right. And that's got to count for something. I mean, this is Kim Kardashian. We're talking about. She gets points for even taking the exam a second time, doesn't she guys? You know how much reading that is?

There's there's rational inheritors to that. So dune is on tv. Right now and frank. Herbert wrote the initial dune. Books'd but there's actually besides the let's say half a dozen in the initial do books. There's another half those that were written by his son. And i think brandon sanderson michael j. r. kevin j anderson at seventy. Thank you exactly yes i should. yes The fill in more about the banana. Guess read more about the you know how spicer end space holding was first discovered and l. duncan idaho and they the fact that that i really liked the fact that they were able to capture kind of the not only the the universe of it the characters on it but that the writing style was similar enough that it wasn't jarringly. Well before i was doing jazz. I'm doing rock and roll. You know that kind of thing and there's any number of things where sometimes they try to continue it and maybe it is jarringly different. But for instance. I i love the a robert b parker wrote us. The number of series spencer's his most well known creation. You know the the Tough guy private. I probably forty in the series of the three dozen something like that and he passed away ten years ago. But the books about spencer and about jesse stone up in paradise and about sonny randle have continued to come out and the foundation that that is the robber. Bees robbery parker. I dunno trust continues to find authors. That seem to have a good feel for how they were written a good feel for the characters and that there's been very few books that were like. Oh okay the series is dying now because they you know james bond has been on and off with people that followed ian.

President Biden at this hour, is expected to unveil his administration's latest effort to combat the coronavirus pandemic. The administration says Biden six point plan will include a vaccine mandate for federal workers and contractors. NPR's Tamara Keith reports. It comes as infections and deaths from Covid 19 continue to rise across the country. It's been two months since President Biden celebrated what was looking like the nation's independence from Covid 19. But then a Delta variant tore through communities with low vaccination rates. White House press secretary Jen Psaki told CNN. Biden would be speaking directly to the nation about what's next in the pandemic. Most people in this country covid and addressing Covid. Returning to some version of normalcy is their number 12 and three issue. The president is set to outlined plans to, among other things, vaccinate the unvaccinated, including new mandates, keep schools open and improve care for those who do get sick. Tamara Keith. NPR NEWS US Justice Department says it is suing Texas over a new state law that would ban most abortions past six weeks. The lawsuit filed today in federal court asking, a federal judge declared the law is invalid and to quote protect the rights that Texas has violated. Texas law would forbid abortions. In most cases before many women even know they are pregnant and differ some other states and that it leaves enforcement to private citizens through civil lawsuits. Attorney General Merrick Garland called the Texas law clearly unconstitutional under longstanding Supreme Court precedent. Supreme Court, meanwhile, allowed the Texas law to take effect earlier this month. The bind Administration says it has facilitated the departure of more Americans and green card holders from Afghanistan. Officials didn't say how many left though it's fewer than 30. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports Qatar helped arrange the chartered flights from the airport in Kabul. It was the first of what U. S officials hope will be more regular flights out of Kabul. National Security Council spokesperson Emily Price writes in a statement that the Taliban have been in her words businesslike and professional. State Department spokesperson that price says he expects there will be additional opportunities for Americans and others to depart Afghanistan. The Taliban have still not allowed flights out of another city, Mazar e Sharif, where private groups have been trying to evacuate hundreds of Afghans and some American citizens. The State Department is calling on the Taliban to let those flights go. Michele Kelemen. NPR NEWS Washington The number of people filing first time jobless claims took a dip last week falling to 310,000. That's a pandemic low.

The NASDAQ dropped 38 points today. You're listening to NPR. 74 degrees at 404. Good afternoon. I'm elbow Lara with W B E Z NEWS. Chicago's public health commissioner says vaccination rates are improving in some neighborhoods that are most behind. They saw the largest increase in first dose vaccine coverage for people over the age of 12 since last week. This includes West Side neighborhoods like Austin Humble Park in North Lawndale and South Side neighborhoods of Ashburn, Auburn, Gresham and Inglewood. Dr Alison are what he says. There's still a way to go. There is no magic number that herd immunity, but it's recognizing that as you have more people vaccinated throughout social networks, you are also providing some protection for people who are not vaccinated. 37 of Chicago, 60 ZIP code areas have administered at least the first dose to eligible people. Chicagoans will start seeing three D fiberglass hearts popping up around the South side, the love, unity and values. Institut unveiled the parade of Hearts public art installation this week. To commemorate the struggle Chicagoans have overcome this past year related to social justice and the pandemic. Five FT. Tall hearts were created by 11 local artists and feature designs that chair parts of their personal stories. Rosa Amazon. Wilbourn is the founder of the Love Institute, the social injustices that were unearthed really devastating right? It really reveals some systemic issues, and I think that the parade of hearts is an opportunity to start to soften that and to find a way forward. Will Burns Organization will organize a treasure hunt in October to connect locals to the communities where the hearts are located. They'll be on display through the end of October.

"Jason from boston political commercial strike me and my friends is so fake. What do you think the best ways for politicians to communicate with younger generations are. Oh i totally i. What comes to mind. Is you know our attention. Spans in terms of the younger generation. I think for jen's ears at seven to eight seconds. I found really interesting to look at. I know it's god that is just not a little depressing. It is but i think if you were to look at present one of things. I've really noticed. Once president biden took over was the amount of what they call on. Instagram reels r. e. e. l. s. Were just short. Six five six seven second video is a president biden. Saying something i think. Things are changing tap to that attention span. Of course. I think there are downsides to that in the sense that you're presenting a complex news articles. You can't get that down in five six seven second. That's why you the headline right right. But in terms of how we organize interest how we reach people. Communicate with people you know. I think you know getting things down. So that's accessible so it's engaging think we're really starting to change that because of young people and i guess because a short attention spans but i think for political ads for really starting to see that change and i think you can see that on president biden social media page. It's no longer the two minute long. Video is just short five. Six seven second long videos. So which means that. Which means that when tw- twenty years from now when i'm sixty something and your forty that will mean that the attention span will be what two seconds where we're headed. You think back and look go back and look at magazine ads in the sixties and seventies and they included so much copy like a full explanation of what every product did and slowly. We got less and less. How much less can we get if it's really just five or seven seconds. Now isn't the obvious next step that my grandkids will have a attention spans as long as a blink right as long as blink but i think because we up such a digital driven society and we grew up on social media attention. Spans are shorter. If i think unless we really promote the idea the habit of i think in the classroom critical thinking reading looking through kind of looking beneath the surface of just what you see on instagram on headlines generation is better at doing that than others. Because because if you look at if you look at some of the conspiracy theories and misinformation that gets spread on places like facebook around thinking if covert stuff cunanan type stuff. Do you think that the younger generations are better at being critical thinkers than older generations are. Here's is i'd say that younger people look at issues. Not from one lens. We try to seek out as much information as possible. This really struck me after the black lives. Matter are after George floyd got killed during the black lives matter protests over the summer. The amount of people who is saw in my friends who weren't politically active before as a result of those protests that movement they started posting stories. Start posting different infographics on their stories to get this education out there and when we talk about climate change or racial justice we realized that we can't just think about things in one lens in the sense that you have to include different genders different races different perspective perspectives in the conversation. Where else you have an incomplete view of that issue. And so i think in terms of whether or not. We're we're better critical thinkers. I'm not quite sure. But what i think that we are a better at is including more perspectives. In seeking out more information from different people from different backgrounds from different demographics christian from national last one. Could the republican party ever win you over on issues when it pertains to truth and facts. I'd say.

Drab brown suits spoke to a guy named peter for awhile s keep. Any dishwashers visited the booth then had as i was about to walk away. He asked defies dishwasher. Pete was kind of spooky. my cover was blown. Peter introduced me to hanko. The president of champions he had written a year prior requesting a copy of my publication dishwasher.

The president of dish machine kept me. Dishwasher i still needed to find an actual fellow dish dog as the show was winding down. I left the crowds and commotion descending three flights of stairs heading deep down into the bowels of the convention center until i came upon a door a push a button next door and moments later. It buzzed open. I wondered through the labyrinth of corridors peeking around corners. And acting. As if i belonged there whenever i encountered someone then i heard a familiar in the distance. Doing so you're the man behind the scenes The man behind the scenes washing the dishes. Yeah his name is jesse and he was working alone in the cavernous dish room unloading dishes from a huge thirty foot long conveyor belt style machine just like the ones on display upstairs.

Bosses tells us all the time. if that's true it been surrounded by tens of thousands of former dishwashers. Had the restaurant convention. Do you have much experience washing dishes yourself. I can't say that. I have i only at home. You haven't done the past. It's not that effective dishwashers. You're invisible to most restaurant customers. But why was it important. Part of the industry being ignored at this gathering at celebrated every aspect of the restaurant world. Sit out to find some of my fellow. Dishwashers stopped by asking him. If they've seen any dishwashers walking around. I received negative response after another one restaurant owner. Snively told me she wouldn't think of bringing dishwashers to the show. But then i realized there was one place. I was sure to find to dish. Brethren like a moth to the flame. I headed straight for the hobart display as the largest manufacturers of commercial dishwashing equipment. Hobart is legendary amongst those of us. Who washed dishes for a living there. Muddle dish machine would surely be staffed by real life dishwashers. Hobart display was quite a spectacle buzzing with activity with free. Beer doesn't trippy. Sales reps squaring match bright blue shirts. I half expected there to be bikini. Clad women launching a top displayed dish. Machines my hopes for finding dishwashing camaraderie didn't pan out principle. So we're no dishwashers operating the machines. In fact the machine sat idle. And i didn't find much kinship with the hobart salesforce hobart jerry. Baylock showed off their new sink. The turbo wash that circulated water to enhance the soaking of pots and pans with the dish machine. You've got to have somebody to man with this. You don't so you're able to d- staff your kitchen so to speak. So it's a big labor saver. Yes it's more expensive than a three compartment sink but it's less expensive than having a full-time and boy. This shows up every day a fulltime employed dozen. What do you think about the The dishwasher who must be facing layoffs because of the labor savings labour-saving devices. This this does not take very qualified person. It allows one person to do several jobs within they dish room activity instead of having to people to do two separate jobs so it actually is going to help out giving more job security to the person that is working in that dish room area. Now why would that be because they can do more within the dish room they can operate the dish machine both hobart sales reps that. I talked to told me that not only have. They never held dishwashing jobs but they hated doing the tour at home. What's dish machine. Representatives were these to me. They were like surgeons.

"I spoke with crowley who worked as a facilities manager at the mosconi center in san francisco one of the biggest convention centers in the world and he told me that. There's a kind of life cycle to conventions that happened in predictable. Phases the first day. Everybody's disoriented people get lost. People are still individuals at that point. They're not a group just yet. The second day people start to group and and Begin to bond form those little packs of of people and by the third day of the convention there's definite friendships that are made and groups of people that are following each other. And you start to recognize. Who your peers are you kinda you create or they create their own little Herd mentality if you will and all. This happened john on the first day. He did want to talk to anybody. He felt like a loner by the second. He found some friends at volunteer desk. And the costume ball in these people seem like they were pretty fun so some of the people i had talked to during the day. I said let's go back to my room. I've got two bottles of merlot and let's all get drunk and talk about dark shot. But then sadly john discovered the inevitable phase of any convention. He got sick of it in this case too much tv too much merchandise too many pictures and videos of dark shadows going everywhere all the time too much sharing. He woke up the morning of the third day with cheap wine hangover never wanting to talk about barnabas collins again or at least for the foreseeable future. He had to force himself to go downstairs to the final banquet which had already paid forty five dollars to attend in. This other guy was sitting next to me and we've talked a little bit about the show and it was like he started talking. I mean he was from long island. He asked me where i was from. I said chicago and he said he had gone through chicago and and He sa- changed the subject to sports about the bulls. And i don't talk about sports ever. I don't know anything about sports. I don't. I don't even follow the bulls won the championships are going on which actually is very very hard. It's like trying to. It's christmas if you've ever is everywhere like and i found myself sitting with this person at this convention talking about the bulls talking about the bulls in chicago and in your normal life if somebody We're trying to talk to you about sports. You'd be thinking to yourself. I wish i could be talking about something dark shadows right and there was. I was engaging him in talking about the bulls.

"Regulars news. This american life may remember one halloween producer. Nancy updike and i visited john and his friends Facts and erica. Doing their weekly ritual of watching dark shadows and tell you when you watch several hours of this. It's boring it's slow. The acting is terrible. The pot lines are preposterous. And apparently they take months sometimes years to resolve. But it's live tv and it feels like live tv. Which means that if you watch long enough you see. People forget. lines scripts are left on bids during scenes. Prop guys get caught on screen. You can see them through. Doorways flies said on the actors faces during close ups and this is part of what john and his friends love when they watch at the time. We did that story. John was watching six hours a week. Like you notice like the littlest things you wouldn't notice in a regular show like we noticed tonight that people have stopped knocking on the door. Three times they're now knocking on the door. Four times no. Don't stay right here breath you'll make me go back. John thinks they had a lengthy medium deciding that you have to have four knox instead of three the spice up the plot. Exciting like the new director said you know we've got to get rid of. This old is old. The old ways things are going to change around. No more of this three knox so john goes to new york on the train alone to a convention hotel on times square. Catherine doesn't go because she got a job which tends to cut into people's dark shadows habit in a rather major way. I'll be honest. I was really petrified. Because i was alone in new york and there are probably about four hundred. People are waiting in line to go into this banquet hall to start the ceremonies. The opening dark shadow convention ceremonies. And i'm walking around. And i know that everybody here i can walk up to them and start talking about dark shadows. But i don't know if. I want to at this point and the last time that i i the last time i actually remembered that feeling was when i had i gone into a gay bar by myself and felt like this was something i had to do by myself. I was all alone and there. It was like in this room of people that we all had something in common. You had just come out and just come out. We all had something in common. I knew that all these people. We had a similar life experience. We have one thing in green one thing in common. Bet you get for example with the gay bar. You can't just walk up to somebody and say so you're a homosexual me to testing. I'm now at the convention and Right now i'm in the grand ballroom. At the mary up its opulent beyond belief. I mean it's four large chandeliers in there. Probably about i'd say a little bit over five hundred people here right now in. They're doing a retrospective on some of the dark. Shadows actors had passed on their five hundred people sitting in this grand wall palm room watching tv. We all go into the ballroom to watch tv what. That's the opening ceremony. So says five hundred. The news a little tiny huge little black and white twelve inch. It'll be all around because when you think about it is convention watching tv. And i hadn't thought about that until that exact moment i was going. I'm here to watch. Tv i'm here to watch tv. And i'm here to talk to people about watching. The other thing i was there for it was to watch. This remaining people make dark shadows videos. They make their own dark shadows videos. We like using footage from the original. They create new. Dark shadows videos episodes. They make new episode cell. He meets new episodes theirselves. Like they get costumes and build sets like others one. There was this one thing that was amazing. It was a parody of the show. But apparently like if you watched it right now you would go it. It could be funny but you know. It's all inside jokes if you watch dark shadows. It's the only way you think. This is funny but it was so elaborate like they had built like completely rebuilt the set of like barnabus drawing room completely they had and then like another set was in a graveyard and they had completely done the graveyard. This one man played three different characters and it was edited like it was completely professional. I mean they must've spent like a ton of money they had gotten one of the original cast members to come and be in the video. It was so incredibly elaborate and it was like forty five minutes long and it was good and there was like the thing. I'm sitting there going. This.

"74" Discussed on This American Life

"Listeners. To this american life may remember one halloween producer. Nancy updike and i visited john and his friends Facts erica during their weekly ritual of watching dark shadows. And i'm until you when you watch several hours of this. It's it's boring it's slow. The acting is terrible. The pot lines preposterous and apparently they take months sometimes years to resolve. But it's live tv and it feels like live tv. Which means that if you watch long enough you see. People forget. Lines scripts are left on bids during scenes. Prop guys get caught on screen. You can see them through. Doorways flies set on the actors faces during close ups and this is part of with john and his friends love when they watch at the time. We did that story. John was watching six hours a week. Like you notice the littlest things you wouldn't notice a regular show like we noticed tonight that people have stopped knocking on the door three times. They're now knocking on the door. Four times via your made me go back. John thinks they had a lengthy meeting deciding that you have to four knox instead of three the spice up the plot like the new director. Said we've got to get rid of this old old. The old ways things are going to change around no more of this three knocks out so john goes to new york on the train alone to a convention hotel in times square. Catherine doesn't go because she got a job which tends to cut into people's dark shadows habit in a rather major way. I'll be honest. I was really petrified. Because i was alone in new york. Anybody and there're probably about four hundred people waiting in line to go into this banquet hall to start the ceremonies. The opening dark shadow convention ceremonies around. I know that everybody here. I can walk up to them and start talking about dark shadows. But i don't know if i want to this point and the last time i i the last time i actually remembered that feeling was when i had i gone into a gay bar by myself and felt like this was something i had to do by myself. I was all alone and there. I was like in this room of people that we all had something in common. You just come out just come out. We all had something in common. I knew that all these people we had a similar life experience. We have one thing in grieve one thing in common for example with the gay bar. You can't just walk up to somebody and say so you're a homosexual to me too testing. I'm now at the convention and right now. I'm in the grand ballroom. At the marriott its opulent beyond believe. There are four large fires in there probably about. I'd say a little bit over five hundred people here right now. And they're doing a retrospective on some of the dark shadows actors. Who had passed on. It's funny they're five hundred people sitting in this grand walpole room watching tv cab. We all go into the ballroom to watch tv. What that's the opening ceremony. So so says five hundred news a little tiny huge black and white twelve inch at the gather round because when you think about it. It is a convention about watching tv. And i hadn't. I hadn't thought about that until that exact moment that was sort of. I'm here to watch. Tv i'm here to watch tv. And i'm here to talk to people about watching. The other thing. I was there for was to watch this. The amazing people make dark shadows videos. They make their own dark shadows videos. We like using footage from the original. They create new. Dark shadows videos episodes. They make new episode episode ourselves. Like they get costumes and build sets. Oh my god. There's this one there. Was this one thing. That was amazing. It was a parody of the show. But apparently like if you watched it right now you would go. It could be funny but you know. It's all inside jokes if you watch like dark shadows. It's the only way you'd think this is funny. But it was so elaborate like they had built like completely rebuilt the set of like barnabus drawing room completely they had and then like another set was in a graveyard and they had completely done the graveyard. This one man played three different characters and it was edited like it was completely professional. I mean they must've spent like a ton of money they had gotten one of the original cast members to come and be in the video. It was so incredibly elaborate and it was like forty five minutes long and it was good and there was like the thing. I'm sitting there going. This is.
