"Mention the who probably, they were one of the bigger bands, but like you said, this vaulted them from theaters to arenas. After that movie came out, but who were kind of cranky there because there was no green room. They were used to better treatment, the monitors were crap, apparently, even though supposedly the sound system is designed by a man named Bill Hanley was great. But the onstage monitors weren't good, so what Roger Daltrey couldn't hear himself he feels like he was off key and so they were just like not having it. I think Keith Moon and John Entwistle purposefully took LSD in a station wagon with some girls, but daltrey and townshend accidentally took LSD, townshend from coffee and Raja daltrey from some tea that was spiked. Right. So by the time they got up there, they were not happy, they were pushed to like a 5 a.m. slot and when Abbie Hoffman jumps up on stage to, you know, God bless Abby Hoffman, but admittedly it was quite a buzzkill when you hear the audio from this to interrupt to who show to talk about his friend and activist John Sinclair. For cannabis possession, Pete Townsend wasn't having it. And he moved him forcibly out of the way with his guitar, very famously. Yeah, supposedly injured Abbie Hoffman, but Roger Daltrey's number didn't happen. And so did Pete Townsend. Travel loved it. They were surly. Kind of, which is not how most of the other bands were, but I can't really blame him. You said that there was no green room and they had to wait backstage. I read that they had to wait backstage for 14 hours. Yeah, it was a drag. Anybody would be surly at that point, you know? But they had a really cool thing that happened just kind of serendipitously. Their set got pushed so far back that they were playing the end of it as the sun was rising. And it's really neat in the documentary to see that. That's true. Yeah. So they lucked out. I mentioned Sean Anna. If you've ever seen that Woodstock movie, one of the great performances is from the 50s throwback doo wop group that became famous for their TV show in the 70s. But you would think it would be antithetical to these hippy dippy late 60s kids out there, but it was that perfect like nostalgia bomb for them. Like this is the music they either heard when they were kids or their parents music. And it was a lot of fun. Yeah. And I was like, they were a club act. And they ended up becoming like Shana na because of that Woodstock appearance. But you said that it was nostalgic. I guess the kornfeld and Lang tried to get Rory Rogers to sign on to. Yeah, he was going to do he was going to be the last act and just play happy trails. And the whole thing and Roy Rogers was like, I'm not doing that. Get off my lawn. So we got Van Halen to sing happy trails. Oh yeah, I forgot they sang that. David Lee Roth is cool. That's the poor quote. Can we make that our little Instagram thing? Sure. And then of course, Jimi Hendrix, we would be remiss not to mention the Monday morning. Most people are gone, performance by the band of gypsies. Like not just Monday morning, Monday morning commute time. Yeah. Like the last time for an acid fueled rock concert. Yeah. And that's where you get the very famous Star-Spangled Banner performance. And the reason why he played that is because it was in his contract that he performed last, and that all those delays just bumped him to Monday morning. And what's cool is so many people had cleared out that if you see pictures of him playing, I'm not sure if it's in the documentary or not. People are just hanging around like the stage, like fans are just hanging on the speakers and sitting around watching him like that closely. It just became that loose. Yeah, it was sort of the effect of like, I don't know if you've ever worked in restaurants. But when you put on your music after the restaurant is closed and everyone just kind of milling about drinking and cleaning up. That was in the band of gypsies. It's crazy. It is crazy. So the Lang kornfeld Roberts and rosenman apparently Lang in cornfield were like guys, we need more money. More money, more money, like a bunch of times than Roberts and rosemary actually went back to their families. And we're like, this is a sure thing. Just give us some more money. And they ended up sinking 1.8 million into the whole thing, which I saw was about $17 million. In today's money. Which is still not bad considering a concert with half a million people. But they were almost almost entirely in the red for that. Like they made basically no money whatsoever. They just lost at $1.8 million. And they owed it to Roberts and Rosamund and their families, and apparently laying in cornfield finally paid off the debt in the early 80s, and it was largely because of the documentary movie and the album that was released. Yeah, the documentary made a lot of money, like 30 million plus, and I think that doesn't even count home video and streaming releases and stuff like that since. But like I said, Michael wildly won the Academy Award for that. And a very young Marty Scorsese was, I think, one of 7 editors, and I think he was there shooting as well if I'm not mistaken. And his legendary film editor thema soon mocker or is it, I don't know if it's scoon marker Schumacher. Both. Okay. One of the all time great film editors. She was one of them as well. And that movie boosted a lot of careers for people that ended up. And I think it ended up in the film, and I think a lot of people who didn't sign over their rights or refuse to have their footage used probably ended up regretting that. Yep. And there's nothing sweeter than thinking of Neil Young regretting one of his early decisions, you know? No, I love Neil young. So one thing that came out of Woodstock was that it became a bit of a brand as seen in some revivals that were made for attempts. I think there was Woodstock 94. There's definitely Woodstock 99. And then there is going to be a Woodstock 50 in 2019, but it got scuttled. Because of the disaster of the last Woodstock, I think. Yes. But there's one thing I want to say, we talked a lot about people pitching in volunteering all that stuff. On Monday morning, after Jimi Hendrix, finished playing. Almost everybody left. But about 8000 participants fans, people who came to Woodstock. They stayed behind to help clean up, and this place was trashed. When they started. And apparently they did such a good job that archeologists who excavate the site are routinely frustrated at finding basically nothing. Which is the 8000 volunteers who stayed behind to clean up did such a good job at it. That's pretty great. No disasters, I think there were two deaths and it seems like neither one were because of the thing. I think the one reported overdose was later found or believed not to be an overdose and was a heart thing. Yeah, the other one was very sad too. Well, yeah, that was a straight up tragedy. A kid was sleep asleep in the field

Oh boy, Amy Carter. Was she a radical? Hanging around with Abbie Hoffman of the ipsos in the 80s getting arrested, demonstrations against CIA involvement in Central America. How do I know that? Because I had been invited to Brown university to replace the normal person in the debate of heads versus fetch. I tried on one side. There was the LSD guru who I debated many times, Timothy Leary, the wing ding. There was a special edition of Abbie Hoffman who called himself the Hebrew road warrior. Was in the field house at brown university and Providence it was about 4000 students. 3998 they were supporting the LSD guru Timothy Leary and Abbie Hoffman the Hebrew road warrior and two people who were supporting me and at the time Peter Ben jinger, who had been the head of the DEA in the Jimmy Carter administration.

"A place for together. Download the app to find yours. From wondering, I'm Lindsey Graham and this is American history tellers. Our history, your story. This is episode two of our special series on the trial of the Chicago 8. We're telling the story in collaboration with another wondery podcast, legal wars. Hill Harper, who hosts that show and who you just heard will be taking us through the drama in the courtroom. The trial captured the nation's attention, even in the midst of almost unprecedented political turmoil. Things had come to a head in August of 1968 when riots consumed the city of Chicago during the week of the Democratic National Convention. Thousands gathered to protest U.S. action in Vietnam and the cops cracked down. It was war in the streets. The federal government blamed the protesters and brought charges against 8 prominent activists, but the trial was about more than just who threw the first punch. During the trial, the radicals and establishment interrogated each other relentlessly. On one side the 8 liberal defendants, Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Bobby seale, Dave dellinger, rennie Davis, Tom Hayden, John froines, and Lee Weiner. On the other side, representing the U.S. government, judge Julius Hoffman, and the sitting mayor of Chicago, Richard J Daley. It was a battle for the soul of American culture, and both sides plan to win by any means necessary..

Talk live listening on fm to ktf s. Go ahead. yeah how you doing. Welcome sir I listen to you guys off. And i guess default since the show here You know. I don't know there's just so many things could comment on kind of your last caller. Well if i had to pick one it would be that I was involved with. Sds and all this stuff back in the seventies. It's an all that stuff. The students for democratic society and the gainesville eight and all those people. And i can't be happier than the fact that we lost our revolution. I really hope that you guys lugers to what are you talking about. This is really a pretty good country. You hope we lose our revolution. What do you mean by that. Yeah well that You know you're very libertarian. Over the over the edge. I would say with libertarianism. And when i was your age We really were all about you. Know bringing down The powers that be in the man and all that. And it's a again. I can tell you that. I'm glad that we did not win. Hold on let me let me just check song. So you're part of the gainesville eight right because this is what you guys you throw it but you throw a a straw Argument and that don't wish the vietnam war had been ended. Well not the way it did. No you know how many vietnamese people died. How many innocent cambodian people die result of us pulling out. We came on that totally just like we just caved on afghanistan pool you believe in ongoing military occupation no i do not believe in ongoing military occupation. Okay you are listening to your show enough to understand. I teach public speaking. So i understand the way you couch arguments very well argument where i'm just trying to where you're coming from because you said you glad that you failed. That's yeah that's not an argument. It was a question to ask you a question for clarification after the vietnam war a whole bunch of hippies Abbie hoffman. And all of and i was right in there with them Trying to pull the pull the country down because we thought it sucked because of the vietnam war and all that stuff. And i'm here to tell you that. I'm glad that we failed. And you're saying you would be happy and here if the new hampshire. Libertarians fail as well. You'd be happy about that. Well i think a lot of your arguments so you know like my why wouldn't like a lot of people. Your age are are kind of almost complaining about your mom making clear rooms you know. I think that doesn't wow. So you're in ages ta college professor. That here in just is what you are. I am a better because older right. You're wiser you smarter because you're so much wiser You know the quota scripture to you rose. It says professor to be wise became fools. And that's that's where this country is heading professing to be wise so you literally just said that i am wise. Everybody who's Complain about this. Not being facetious by the way tom. Here's what i'm curious about. So are you saying. You don't think libertarian. Should have a place for themselves where they can live all. They wanna live very excellent. I'm i'm i'm very much libertarian. Okay then rectify for me. How it is how it is that you would feel good about libertarians in new hampshire failing at their movement well because jefferson and adams. All these people said that our government won't work that this country will work without a religious population with a bunch of people who believe that there is a basis for our freedom. And my friend. Here mountaineer is religious as well. The use of the word religious has changed since eighteen. Seventy or are you saying that we have to be your religion. No bracing in just to clarify are are you saying that we have to have institutionalized religion not institutionalized religion but there has to be a six point six paul reference for which all decisions are made. And we're missing that wait. Are you saying other question to clarify what you're saying there. I just gotta understand. Are you saying that everyone should be of the same religious belief system. Well i think there's only there's there's either truth or false but let me just ask you this. Are you pro-abortion if you're pro-abortion how can you be Pro immigration because fetuses are the ultimate. Emigrant comes from left field very left field. I'm in favor of freedom sur. Which means i'm in favor of freedom over your own body. So yes i think people should be able to make difficult choices with your own body. So that's actually one of the points of disagreement is some people believe that human life starts at conception. Some people like myself believe that human life starts at your first breath now. We're not going to come to an agreement but we can't agree that whatever human life is should be protected. The difference is though tom. We're not willing to put you in jail cell because we have a disagreement about the beginning of human life. And would you be willing to put us in jail cell over that no. That's not correct at all once again. You're you're hypothesizing contrary back closer. I'm asking you a question normally okay. Obviously we're not women but if we were women would you. Would you want to put us in jail cell for having an abortion. Well you know. I wrote an article one time. Because people love the feminists were complaining about the Supreme court being in their vaginas. And i pointed out that it's not the supreme court it's sperm and your vagina. that causes praise. You didn't answer the question. can you answer the question. A simple question because it's irrelevant. It's it's totally a. It's quite relevant because a lot of people want to outlaw. Abortion is that would that include you. I think abortion is totally wrong. Yes i think. It's totally hideous. You're saying outlawing. Abortion would be totally hideous or abortion itself hideous the fact of abortion the fact so therefore. Would you be in favor of outlawing abortion six to how many people have abortions because of rape and incest is like one or two. Okay but would you be in favor of outlawing abortion. Yes i'm favorable so therefore would you be in favor of putting a woman who has an abortion in a jail cell. Maybe not the one who is the person who performs it. Yeah okay so you wanna put doctors in jail cells for performing abortions well because it's anti freedom and anti choice and people who who went to the Washington on january sixth in jail. You're not a libertarian. In any way shape or form in my book because people should be able to make define. What a libertarian is. Then.

"When I read Huxley's book on mescaline, I would say I was probably 14. Okay, Just a kid 16 years old, All right. All right. Go ahead. Yes. So So, um You know, I had a nickname of being the mad scientists. Even though we grew up in New York City, you know, you had to be tough to survive on the streets and I had friends who helped me get in that kind of Mental training mode. But also there was a nerd equality to me, you know, So they called me the mad scientists because I did all kinds of things with technology like it. Was doing trans humanist experiments when I was 14 and 15 upset the trans humanists the other day, But it's just my life story. I took a plant a big green plants. And I took a hypodermic needle and I injected it with alcohol. Close it in the freezer. And then that was my laboratory experiment for high school that I brought to the big science fair, you know, And it was under the the umbrella of Cairo Jacks, which is when you you know, people freeze themselves so they can resurrect future Maybe one technology So I was doing all these things on the side. So what? When I read Huxley's book, I didn't want to get high. I wanted to literally go through the doors of perception. So an honor student on on our high school student friend of mine whose father was a doctor. The doctor didn't give me the best one. But he got the message. And for me, it was pure grade. A missile. And and so I took the mescal in and I had what you could call an altered state of consciousness psychedelic experience. Well, that's not really what I was looking for. And it was nice to observe, you know the floating lights and stuff. But it didn't give me any answers. But I didn't give up. You know, I kept moving in that direction, and I'm devouring books by guys like Huxley. Dr John C. Lilly, the corpus doctor, You know they made the movie altered states of consciousness about him and an old movie with George C. Scott, where he's, uh, scientists working with dolphins. And he was was working for our intelligence agencies. He created that deep tanks for sensory deprivation out of body experiences. And so when I was in college Um, I I ended up going to the University of Missouri, where I have had a dual major And the dual major was both filmmaking. And a brand new field in psychology called Altered states of consciousness. Where we literally scientifically explored and experimented with altered states of consciousness. And we did the stuff that was like on the books, and then you were free to do your own off the books, experimentation. One of the things that I did was build myself an amateur. A sensory deprivation, deep tank chamber in my, uh, place at the university. Try to simulate, uh The other scientist who literally who first created the the sensory deprivation chamber, now or and all this search Remember, like, Like a lot of people out there who have searched for answers and stuff. You got to deal with your own biases, your own prejudices. You've got to deal with. The flow the information stream that comes your way. Is it accurate as it, you know, reliable. Is this really science or conjecture or whatever. But going back just briefly to when I'm still in high school. By the time I was 15 years old, I was regularly demonstrating with Abbie Hoffman radical activists in Central Park. I was hanging out with Ken Keesey, the author of one Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest and the head of the merry Pranksters in the guru, the psychedelic guru to the Grateful Dead. Always met him in Central Park. I was hanging out with Timothy Leary in the East Village in Manhattan. And they all had an influence on you, didn't they? Yes, incredible deep influence because You know, you can like these people are dislike them, but at least they their minds were alive. You know they were questioning, so I gravitated towards that. And, uh, I don't know At what point you want to pause or whatever, but I want to take a jump even further into the future because When whenever you're looking for answers, and I think many people listening would probably agree. Sometimes those answers come to you for from your own intellect or mind or ability or whatever. Sometimes they come from hunch. A guess. You know, quantum physics is coming up with all kinds of stuff. The relationship between Neurological, brain science and quantum physics. You know, intention and stuff. You hold on for a second. Paul. We're going to take a quick break, but we'll come back and pick it up right there for you. Here's our first emerging artist Francis.

"abbie hoffman" Discussed on Dopey: On the Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction
"Go you. I saw i saw this years ago. there is a movie about abbie hoffman right and and he was vis visionary leader in the late sixties. You know and I i don't remember the details. but he. He wound up getting arrested for for something and he was very very polarizing and wild and he got diagnosed with. I think bipolar. Yeah schizophrenia and he had to take librium. you know. I'm sorry lithium in the movie and And i know that every time he opened his they played some seventies song and the montage was him opening the medicine cabinet like so you see his face in the mirror and he opens the medicine cabinet and he takes lithium out and he takes it and he won't. His life became much more manageable but he felt like he was sacrificing his superpower for this manageability. That's the way they kind of told the story in this movie didn't is that is that does that relate to you at all. No yeah yeah i mean. It's funny because when i was a teenager so when we were teenagers on the lower east side there were still. I mean you know there were still like some semblance of that old seat like sir. Abby abbie hoffman enjoy ruben where like the founders of the national party of the and by the time i came around angola eighties there was like the yippies were split into two factions and there was the dana beal action seeker. There smelled like cap. Has and i would get high with them david around. Yeah i like the other faction was the jerry the peddler faction at the anarchist's switchboard which was like the ones that i really knew because i hung out at the anarchist's switchboard i was. I was in the wrong faction. I was in the hypnosis. But that's funny. Keep going so. Yeah abbey hoffman. And then i looked up to him. When i was a teenager i know. But in retrospect like yeah man that guy was clearly you know. He was like classic. You know classic bipolar which you could you know i just. I considered i consider him to be part of our extended tribe. You know i mean people have to make decisions for themselves about what kind of like what works for them. Over the years. I've crossed paths with thousands of people. I mean i you know i like ran the dispatch of club years now. The actually doesn't exist in. It's called the fire. We'd collective minutes like a whole different group of people but they're still. There's like you know. We helped inspire a lot of people to start thinking about things in different and interesting ways. But you know sure. Are there some people that say. Yeah the drugs like just take away my energy and you know. Make it so that. I can't do things for sure there. People like that numb. And then there's the people like me who were like The drugs actually allow need to be able to fly. Because it's kind of like the the lithium is like having lead weights. That i put on what that means is that i don't have to worry as much about flying too high flying too high for me. Looks like you know like running through the streets. Being a crazy person you know like flying too high is the air thins. You can't breathe. You hit the atmosphere and you die. That's a flying to highs you. What i mean like moderating the flight means you get to enjoy flying. Yeah but also you know for people diagnosed bipolar. There's this like you know it's like a pendulum and on one side is like you know. delusional psychosis and then on the other end suicidal depression. I mean it's like really like like in. Both of those extremes are really awful but what is it looked like to be somewhere in the middle and what we've said for years. I mean early on the projects You know like as we were kind of forming as community jackson. I wrote this book called navigating the space between brilliance and madness. And what we said was. It's you know it's not about trying to be in the middle so you don't feel anything now. You gotta the automobile things really strongly. It's a question of like. How much can you let yourself go there before you swing over into the depressive around and so there's ways i mean all of the kind of taking care of the basics that i'm sure you know for the people out there were like like in like in in your journey of sobriety like just being able to you know get enough sleep at night and make sure that you eat. Well eat good food and that you exercise every day and that you have a routine you know like all like all that all that basic stuff is what allows you to be able to kind of build up strength in order to Yeah to live a full life. And so i i think yeah i. I don't know what ended up. I know abbie hoffman ended up being chased by the law and i think he ended up killing himself. You know. and that's what happens. Like people diagnosed bipolar have a higher suicide rate than any other psychiatric diagnosis. Because there's a lot of people out there who want to kill themselves but they don't often have the energy to do it. People who are bipolar. You know they find the way right. They find the way. It's like. I find it so inspiring and because when we started dopey like it wasn't like some movement you know what i mean. It was fun it was like to have a laugh and as more people kinda got involved and my partner died it became like well. What good can come of this. You know what i mean and one good thing that really the stuff that you've done and written and been a part of and still continue to do is so inspiring and and i think like it really reminds me of this recovery movement stuff. We're doing which says there is no right way to get sober. And it says there's an infinite number of ways to get addicted and an infinite number of ways to get out and we do not shame anybody for any path they take out. And i think that reminds me of what you guys do. And the other thing is that ram like when you when you talk about addicts and the importance of living. Wow whole universe of dopey listeners but also just drug addicts who are dual diagnoses. You know what. I mean you go to treatment and like just about every person who is an addict has some other form of mental illness happening and the addiction was just the way they self medicated anyway. So it's like we're talking about a really similar population. Just from the gecko for sure. I mean i think some of the foundational work. That is really critical. When you're navigating these realms is just being able to to hold the complexity that people get when you talk about like dual diagnosis you know so. There's like addiction issues. Mental health issues. That's all good. That's important in the language and the the the actual diagnoses. They can be really helpful and they can be really liberated. You know it can be really helpful to to get a diagnosis. You know if there's a clear treatment for it but there's also weighed the diagnosis is can be really not helpful. Yeah and we're just living and especially for young people who are like just like when identity is so important trying to figure out who you are as a person and then it's.

It's like, you know, there's a lot to love about New York not not the mayor or the governor. Certainly, but Not the politicians that are ruining America's greatest city on quite deliberately. It seems most of the time that was that was actually not from this year. But just one of our favorite sound bites. Hello, it's winter, and it's true. It is winter and it's winter in Texas, and all of the windmills throws. It Turns out, they have become Very dependent on windmills in Texas of all places. Natural gas rich oil rich Texas and they've gone heavy into the windmill thing, and some cold weather came down. Because it's winter and the windmills froze. And they're rolling blackouts across Texas yesterday, rolling blackouts all over Texas. They lost electricity. It's bits. How you third world country. This is the Democrats turning us into a third world country. Cheap, abundant energy is key to being a first world country. The Democrats are against all of them. They're against abundant energy, at least known energy, sir said. You know, windmills. Hey, windows. Put a windmill on your hat and maybe willpower your brain, But the text is people are now regretting on. It was a Rick Perry was on last night with Tucker Carlson and in the middle of his live shot from home in Texas. He was wearing a down coat inside. Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, former Energy secretary secretary of the Department of Energy here in Washington and Rick Perry was wearing a down coat of quilted down coat inside and doing his live shot with Tucker Carlson. And on his electricity died. The signal died, and they had to re establish it because the Democrats and the Democrat ideas are being implemented, and when that happens, everything goes to hell. You see that? That's how this works on day. I guess they think it's funny or something. Um, and and then you know, you're being lectured by people flying around in Gulf Stream jets, the usual The usual stuff, All right. I did mention that Nancy Pelosi Panel front page of The Washington Post above the pole above the fold. Panel will investigate capital riot comma, Pelosi says. Baker says House will move to create body like 9 11 Commission. I've been talking about this since the beginning. They're trying to turn this into December 7th and September 11th. This is that their branding with the collusion of their allies in the news media. On. This is the big idea to demonize Americans. Americans we are their enemies on an open border is their friend. Iran is their friend. China is their friend. Cuba is their friend. They didn't that Muslim brotherhood. They're They're friends, and but you're not. It's the it's the Democrat Party of 2021. Let's go to the Let's go to the telephones. Let's go to let's go to Jack calling from Florida Jack here on the Chris Plante show. Morning, Mr. Plant your God sent to our name. Uh, Chris, I have so many things to talk to you about. But you probably won't talk to somebody else later today, but I was in the capital. I entered the capital. Why did I do that to speak to my representatives or a senator? Well, wait a minute. Wait, wait a minute checks Hang on a sec. So you were there on January 6th and you're at the president's speech on the lips, and then you went down and you entered the capital on January 6th. That is true, sir, that that is true. The reason I went there was not damage anything or cause any trouble but to speak to my representatives. Anybody representative from any district or any senator from any state? Because specifically what I was fired up about. Was knowing exactly what was gonna happen since they had won the House one the Senate and fortunately won the presidency. I thought it important, at least for The Republicans to stand up and say this election was fraud. And and what did I get? I got all the representatives. All the senators hiding in the basement. Afraid of Trump of Trump supporters. Can you believe that? Afraid of Trump supporters. We were I didn't I wasn't on the house or the Senate side. I was in the road turned up and all we were doing. Their people were singing people were praying. Waving flags. The melee that you saw on television. Chris was when the police walked in, you know, just like stormtroopers, which I guess they had to do with all that black protective gear. And they just started pushing the Patriots out. Well, then some. The Patriots didn't like being pushed like that. And then they all they did was pushed back. There were no weapons, but there were no clubs. No, no, nothing like that. Anyway, so we weigh one of getting Pushed out and then the melee. Remember the old? Uhh you're from Chicago? Of course. Remember that the police riot, Chris that the said the 1968 Democratic convention was a police riot. That's what I was thinking. Chicago with back to Chicago police, right? Yeah, well, well, let me let me just pause on that for a sec. It was never a police riot. It was always the left wing rioting and attacking the police. It was always that you know, the The Abbie Hoffman's and the SPS and was never the fault of the police. But even back then they were blending the police for their own vie. It's worth not noting Jack because they're the left was blaming the day they show up. They attacked the place, and then they blame the place. And then the media reports that it was the police right. Even back in 1968, which is a long time ago. So I just for the record, that's important historical context, I think, but But, Jack, let me let me pose you. So you went into when you when you went down. Did you wait until the end of the president's speech? Yes, sir. Yes, definitely waited president. And then and then you went down. And how did you find yourself walking into the capital? Which do you know which end or what entrance? He went in. We My life tonight. My wife, by the way, is an improvement from the Philippines. She's 85 years old. She got halfway up. We worked away up underneath all the lattice and they were building for the inauguration. People were trying to stream from the left and the right but it was too jammed up. So we went up under the all that lattice of climbing the stairs. And when we first got there until I got inside, I thought all of the you know the smoke in the tear gas was coming from antifa types. So that really upset a lot of people. You know? What are they doing? You know, we're here to see representatives and they're causing all this trouble that are they inside? So we went inside specifically in originally just to see representatives. But then we went inside thinking why the troublemakers in here? But then when I got there, the side door Christian should been there. 100 times, There's a little side door off of those main steps. And there were three security guards right there. The door was already open. When I got there. Then there was a line of us and that was saying, Please let us stay of representatives. What what's happening inside? And then one of the guards walked away These air police these air Capitol police U S Capitol place their federal police officers. Yeah, and then he came back. Maybe a minute later. And he said something to the other guards. And then they guards work forward out of the hallway, push the doors more open, and then one of them with his hand. Gestured. Come in, come in. So we went and then you probably saw a video of, you know, Kirsty type people just walking through the stands and yeah, yeah, in between the velvet ropes. Now let me let me ask you this. Have you seen yourself and video of this day? Always only video. I've seen myself to the video that I took. Okay. I was gonna send it to your office and even in the video, Chris, I'm saying, Look, we're here. The good guys won. This is one time that we want. We're singing. We're praying There's no destruction. Nobody's urinating on on anything. God bless America. God bless President Trump and the whole time I'm thinking Order of representatives and I'm calling, you know service, Scott.

Gonna be kind of a strange season for the nomination because I don't know what the show's gonna look like. Certainly no red carpets or anything like that. Yes, there will be virtual, But sag nominations made a little more sense to letting me than the Golden Globes did, But here to sort it all out for us is Joe Newmark WR movie movie minute. Good Morning, Joe. How are you? Morning, guys? Yeah, it is going to be a weird your first ball. Of course. Everything is gonna be virtual. For the most part. We still don't know what the Oscar is gonna be like. But the Golden Globes gonna be doing it where Amy Poehler's in New York, I think and Tina Fey's in L. A. So they'll be sort of zooming back and forth. Or maybe cameras, you know, or cell phones that on the potential winners, and so if they win, it might be, you know, accepting live kind of thing. It's just a quick note. I think it's going to be interesting this year because it's gonna be almost a little bit like the year that the Oscars celebrated indie films. Remember that back in 1996 when it was movies like Shine and Fargo When things like that, that sort of got a lot of attention and Billy Crystal famously said, You know who are all you people because they weren't Hollywood royalty on. I think it's gonna be a little of that this year. Because all of these things you know we'll have streamed very few of them if any premiered in theaters on so right saying makes a lot more sense and Golden Globes, of course, But you know, that's like 95 foreign journalists voting for those things. Where is the Screen Actors Guild is from people in the industry. And so that makes a lot of sense. So let's just jump into that. You know, I think that the the the Sehgal Wars has got a good sense of what what people really saw and what they liked, And obviously there's a There's a sense of the Golden Globes kind of lost. You know, the nominee a lot of black lead films. In fact, none of them the five blood did not get nominated. Where is it did at the at the SAG Awards? And ah and Marines. Black bottom came out. Really, You know, strong on top. Chadwick Boseman got nominated for best actor posthumously. Obviously, he also has nominated best supporting role 45 blood, So it's It's gonna be an interesting sort of here. What did you guys think? Is you read those? Those SAG awards? What jumped out at you? Well, I think it was so different the job than the Golden Globes because the Golden Globes was lily white and of the five nominees for best film at the SAG Awards for them. Well, at least three of them were minority and the fourth one involves the Korean story. So it was. It was very diverse. That's right. That's right. In fact, four out of five the only one that's not in the trial the Chicago seven, which is a great film at night, and that's also another thing, which was kind of Netflix has gotten, you know a really big boost this year. This may be the year that they end up winning an Oscar after a couple of Europe strong years because all we're looking at the SAG awards and looking even at Golden Globes. You've got a lot there. But right for the five Bloods, Marini's black bottom all great choices. Minori is really strong through the people that movie that people may not know about minorities. They're really nice films A really strong Minori is about a Korean family that's living in Arkansas. They're immigrants to Arkansas and trying to fit into the community, and the father is played by a terrific actor named Steven Yeun that people may know from the walking dead. And the grandmother who's in there who I think is nominated, actually for AH, Sag Award for best Supporting actress is really fun. She's a She's sort of this live wire. She's really Sparky, this old woman who's kind of always giving, you know kind of inappropriate advice in some ways, and it's really kind of a fun a fun character. It zah fish out of water movie, which is really, you know, obviously, it's always a popular thing, but it's really interesting. It's interesting about how how different cultures kind of assimilated into really nice. A nice drama One night in Miami is also another one that people have been talking about it got nominated at at the SAG Awards is directed by the actress Regina King, who got a NASCAR for a fields. We could talk and not watchman and a few other things, and that's based on a place about a night in 1964 that Muhammed Ali, then cold caches. Play, of course, uh, Sam Cooke, Malcolm X. And, uh, and the football players seem to be actor Jim Brown get together in a in a hotel room with a sort of celebrate. Uh, cash is Clay's win over Sonny Liston, and it's a great drum. It's really terrific. Leslie Odom, who was in Hamilton, uh, got nominated for best supporting actor for ladies. He is It's really a terrific felon that's nominated for best best drama. A to the organ. I'm fumbling story at the SAG Awards. Yeah, these are all really terrific movie that people just seek out. You know, I was kind of sad that my friend Franklin Jello was overlooked at the Golden Globes. I thought he would have been perfect nominee for a supporting actor to move because he's so good and the evil judge in the trial, the Chicago seven Totally agree. And Eddie Redmayne would've been great in there, too. But I actually thought Franklin Jell O would have been really a terrific choice. Sasha Baron Cohen. What a year for him. Obviously, the you getting supporting actor nomination for trial in Chicago seven for playing Abbie Hoffman. But then Bora and had a really strong are really strong, showing its best picture, musical or comedy. It's in there. Maria Batalova, who's hilarious, and it is in there is best actress. You know, it's really an interesting year. Because a lot of these movies are the movies. You wouldn't expect it to get nominated things like Palm Springs, even which is terrific. The sound of metal actor named Riz Ahmed, who's terrific, and there is best actor in a drama You Place a heavy metal drummer who's going deaf, and that's a really, really strong movie because it really kind.

Um But it is It's just It's amazing what is going on in this country and it's the left and there's nothing liberal about these people. No, I'm Abbie Hoffman. Compared to these people. These people are fascists there. There's nothing liberal about any of this. And the sooner that Democrats wake up and start telling the truth. The better chance we're gonna have of saving this really great project called the United States America greatest experiment in in human history. And and maybe the founders were wrong. Maybe we're not capable of governing ourselves in a sane and cogent way. Given the way that the left has sunk their teeth into the body politic attitude, academia and education of the teachers unions. You see these people, you know the teachers unions. You see the Chicago teachers unions there at the front of the line for vaccines. And they've announced you can get more. The vaccines you want. They're not going back to work. Well, what do you mean? What do you mean? You're not gonna use here? One of the teachers was got down in the islands in the Caribbean or somewhere on vacation, doing their classes over line from online from down there and they, one of the more ridiculous There are a lot of very ridiculous episodes. Is this The Chicago teachers here they put out they put this stuff out in public like people going to think this is great. The Chicago Teachers Union put out a tweet the other day six of our rank and file dance teachers come together to use their art form as a voice to express their desire to feel safe. Amidst the Chicago public School teachers return policy and then they I mean, and then there are videos of these nit wits. These dimwits these numbskulls Dancing as like, Maman chancers something blue man group saying This is an expression. I'm going to express myself through dance. No, you're just flailing about like a mental case. You You need a straitjacket, not a classroom this and then this is perfectly normal and liberal circles. They stand in solidarity. You know Lech Walesa Polish rebellion against the Soviet Union, And now they are the Soviet Union. They stand in solid A. With all educators at risk. They're not at risk. They're not at school. You're getting vaccines the front of the line, and now they're talking about going on strike, But first they danced. They Now is the time on sprockets when we dance. What is the matter with these people? What was it that Frank Zappa said that they reporter wanted to interview Frank Zappa about his music. And he said, writing about music is like dancing about architecture. And then he hung up the phone..

"In many cases, where there are many One of the people was Abbie Hoffman, and about a year later he came after you. I was a student at U. N B. C at the time, and about a year later he came out to you NBC to speak, and One of his interesting thing was he wasn't out inside. They didn't give him access to an arena. So I don't know who funded it them to come in, But he spoke in a courtyard outside. Uh, which was kind of uneventful that not too many people turned out, but one of his famous lines was Dempsey hits the spot, and he was There was a commercial at the time, and he was kind of mimicking, like throwing a Molotov cocktail. So that was the highlight of his speech. Which was, you know, while social media does all these purges David Bill Ayers, a guy who actually was involved in bombing the U. S Capital is still available to tweet to his heart. I know one of his buddies. It's SSM a zing. It's amazing the double. It's the double standards. I don't care if they if they held themselves to standards and held the right to those standards, I'd be fine with it. But that no Democrat has condemned anything That happened over the summer. And when Joe Biden finally got around to it after about six weeks and and when it started showing up in the polls and said pull all political violence is wrong. He was both sides in the issue. He was saying that all political violence is wrong. He wasn't condemning BLM antifa by name. He never did. A said Antifa was just in idea, not people, which is weird to people who are beaten up by an idea. I guess they Didn't realize it at the time, but it's it's the hypocrisy. I was just gonna have real quick. Ironically, that gave the election that Nixon was very close. Humphrey probably would have won if it hadn't been for all the writing in Chicago. You might have and Mayor Daley's response to it and the nightly videos of police beating the hell out of protesters and writers and writers being the hell out of of police. It was Complete mess, and it probably would have repeated itself this year last year had it not been for covert. I appreciate the call David. The left was riled up and they would have been at the Democratic convention in Minneapolis. They would have. I don't fit in Minneapolis or you know it was Milwaukee. But it didn't happen. So since it was virtual, there was nobody to punch. Start to Tom and Pikesville. Hello, Tom. They'll have even very good. How are you talking? I'm concerned. It seems the man with You obvious intelligence with continue to back. Oh, Don't trump Donald grabbed by the ground Trump, you know, I know. I understand that you people always think that the main media is conspiring to Discussed. Trump Trump in the negative, negative man and I don't see how anybody could back that movement. With this room, cruise, abusive van. Politically by Trump, and then I'm just sort of send it and he's been actually whether works whether that's I think we've ever had. I'm not a historian, but I think he's one of the worst with everybody. What you're basing the worst presidency on What am I basing? What time? He just said he was one of the worst presidents ever would be basing it on. Well, I'm based on what I know what? Because they're so far. I'm considering people like okay, well, they've all been really bad people if you want to get down to it, or most of them really bad people who wouldn't want to be married to him. But I'm talking about policy wise. What about his policies? Did you do you think that we're terrible? It made him the worst. Well, I think the one act whether what how you wouldn't want to compared, I think the one act of his encouraging that Roger was a is enough. To see that his Vegas he was always being so if I played you audio of him at the giving that speech on Wednesday, saying that they're going to go down to the Capitol and peacefully expressed themselves which will that change your mind? I don't have the one saying that, um, how you could even speak up for that?.

"Blake Stubbs. We covered Chicago movies before we move on just real quickly. What's your favorite movie that was filmed and set in Chicago? Building said in Chicago. Oh, absolutely a thief. I love thief. I could watch Thief any day of the week. I'm a big Michael Mann. That too. I have to. I have to confess. But I also love his L a work one of my favorites of this past year. Was the trial of the Chicago seven. That was such a good movie Now. Was that ever in theaters? No, that was a Netflix produced. Well, okay. The short answer is no because it was widely released on Netflix. But it did. I believe do what a lot of films Netflix does do, and I think they were able to get a screen somewhere, so that if it was any pick up with the Oscars They can say it did have a theatrical release. It is the type of film that could maybe one day get a short theatrical relief. Um, because Netflix, you know will do that if it has to overcome any hurdles with criteria for awards submission, But honestly, this was produced to be released on Netflix. On guy thought it was an excellent pairing of Aaron Sorkin with the cast have to work with. I mean fashion. Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance. Why I could not be a bigger fan of I thought that this movie was maybe and again. This is Erin circuit of a bigger in circumstance. So over the many years I've tried to see his material age. You know? How does it aged with today's, uh, you know, current political climate. This was a movie that I think hit at a good time. I think this was a very well made production. I think that the cast was outstanding. And I think that if you like watching and listening there in Cirque and dialogue, it's filled with little Easter eggs that the fans are gonna love. Um, I know that at some point, it's like he needs to get some new Eastern, like, well, he puts him in there because they're Sure for the things you know, like it. Z like his language is his thing. But I found Sasha Baron Cohen on Mark Rylance, particularly to be outstanding in the incredible Sasha Baron Cohen. Wow nailed it. I'm absolutely huge favorite in that film for me was Michael Keaton. How cool was he? Yes, it is proof that an actor can take what I would what I would call a small amount of screen time because he wasn't like a main star of the film and make a massive impact and and proof that there are no small parts is small actors and Michael Keaton is more on the titan level, in my opinion when he when he gets the right We get the right material. He really brings the juice. I also wanna give a shout out to particular after that has been breaking out the last couple of years. Yeah, Yeah. Abdul Mateen, the second who was on watchman playing Dr Manhattan on HBO this last year. He's in this film. He will also be in the candy man film that will be released in 2021. This guy is outstanding. I have not seen him be bad in anything. Not that I would expect you to be bad, but I mean, he just every time I see him. I'm like, Wow, this guy's got it and and in this particular Film he was. He was quite a presence for the limited time he was given, because of course, these are all historical characters. So like if you're watching, and you know the story of the trial, the Chicago seven. He's only there for a particular short period of time. But what an impression in my opinion, one of the things you mentioned it was historical. The character of Lee whiner was totally different than what he really looked like. He looked like Abbie Hoffman's brother. He had the beard the Afro the whole nine yards. In the movie, he was clean cut. Which was, you know a bit of a stretch, and I think that was because he wasn't that big of a player. In the film on day and they didn't want to take away from Sasha Baron Cohen. I'm sure you know, I think I think they do. They kind of allow it toe visually. It's a downplay so that you know who do it just your focus to at all times, and that's one of those. Dramatic licensing issues that you'll run into. I think whether it's theatrical or cinematic. It happens all the time. Lee whiner on Ah, show Ah, great interview with him and he is such a cool guy. He is an incredible dude like a real deal, hippie and he was just so down to Earth and Oh, it was great. It was great. All right, before a couple more things about well, the year 2020 in in in film, the number one grossing star off 2020. I found was Samuel L. Jackson, who is in like four movies. He was number one, Dwayne Johnson was in number two stars making money out of movies. Right when you do for movies in the year, you're gonna make some money, right? Yeah. I don't know. You would hope you would hope? Yeah. Do you know I don't know if you saw there was a commercial with Samuel L. Jackson was for capital One who? He, You know he does commercial for him. With Santa and Santa was John Travolta. And they're talking. You know, Samuel Jackson makes a great offer from Capital one. And John Travolta says, Well, you know, that's a great offer, You know, have you are you have you been good? Have you done with the bad words? Those air? That's his question to Samuel L. Jackson. He goes, Yeah. Hit John Travolta as Santa wraps and says Ho ho. I don't think so. That was so hysterical. So I had to get I had to get that in. Um I know a big You're a big fan of this movie, which was incredible. It wasn't 2020. It came on 2019, right. Once upon a time in Hollywood. Yeah. So I am a big fan of once upon a time in Hollywood and in 2020, You know, everybody talks about how they were locked, You know, Shut in. You know, you had to find ways to escape. And what What is your form of escapism? I think became a question. Everybody in some form or another had the answer. For me. One of the pinnacles of it was two years ago have at this point. Now we're almost two years removed from it once from the time in Hollywood came out because it's you know, night 2019 was just a 2019. I was so excited for that film. I saw that film with the music box in Chicago. I saw it in 70 millimeter with a packed house full of people. It was probably my last Big cinematic experience, because I I come up to Chicago because I'm down in Peoria, but I went to Chicago for cinematic experiences all the time. Specifically at the music box. I love that fear. On For me. I feel like cinema is a great way to escape. Once upon a time in Hollywood is a big one. For me. I love the characters. I think the movie is goes on a bit of a wild ride, but I also just think it's about people at a certain point. And what Los Angeles in 1969 looks like a lot of the buildings and things that you see are still there, and they all look almost identical like the Cinerama Dome..

"Thanks. I'm a big fan of Aaron Sorkin and tell us why This is a good time for me in television, because I like him so much. He absolutely if you didn't watch it yesterday, a cz, always with streaming. You can watch it at your leisure. But yesterday they dropped on HBO, Max. Ah, Special reunion of the West Wing cast is probably his most legendary TV show The West Wing and gathered almost everybody from the cast for Martin Sheen and Allison Janney and Rob Lowe and so forth. To recreate an episode from one of the early seasons as a theatrical staged event in an empty theater, But they filmed it like it was a play and it was in that shifted from scene to scene and it was really cleverly done, but also just reminded you how Wonderful that Siri's wass and how inspirational it was, even though it was about politics. So if the dueling if the dueling town halls and so you may be this would've last night, but it's still out there, but even more so today, Netflix drops another Aaron Sorkin project. Which he wrote and directed. It's called the Trial of the Chicago Seven, and it goes back to the sixties, when those counterculture figures Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin and Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale and others were put on trial for inciting the riots that disrupted the 1968 Democratic convention. It was a big media circus, and this film looks like it's got it all and including a terrific cast, including two Emmy winners from this season. Jeremy strong from succession and one of the stars of watchman job doing the team. They're playing two of the defendants. You also have frankly, Angela's The judge and Michael Keaton's in there. Sasha Baron Cohen's in there. Doing dramatic bit, and it just sounds like again. Aaron Sorkin is knows his way around a courtroom. If you remember his very first big hit was a few good men. So if you like Aaron Sorkin style you've got two choices was like a double whammy of Aaron Sorkin this week. Now? Yeah, I once interviewed Jerry Rubin, a za journalism student at Penn State, and he was in the Rolfing, which is when you beat yourself up physical. Just one strange cat, man. I got to say yes. I have a feeling that would be a fun one to watch. Yeah. Will be S O on Sunday. You got something? The

"Another movie that was announced this week out of nowhere and will be arriving in our homes in. Two days is. A new movie the name of this borat movie is Borat Colon Gift of pornographic monkey to vice premier Mikhail pens to make benefit recently diminished nation of Kazakhstan. We just saw trailer for this movie this of course, the Sasha Baron Cohen vehicle in which he portrays a Cossack man who is visiting America to learn about it's I don't know it's it's trials it's tribulations it's rituals it's it's fallacies it's difficulty it's humor and I don't know if we needed another borat movie either I think the first Borat movie is one of the great movies of twenty-first-century at least one of the great movie stunts of the twenty first century that being said I I would happily receive this today I really have a problem with it I think it's interesting. The Sasha. Who is about to begin an Oscar campaign for his role as Abbie Hoffman in the trial of the? CHICAGO. Seven. has also decided to almost simultaneously release a Borat Movie I. Think that could work in two directions for him. Certainly, it will make him more famous. Again, it will put more people. A brighter light on him at this moment but also it could work to undermine his seriousness as a performer because. Or at is Borat. Yes I my reaction to this was on the one hand I'll take any new movie that I can get at this point in two thousand twenty but on the flip side. Do, we need this particular movie right now and. Recently, I, guess I'M GONNA announce this on this podcast. I made a letterbox profile. Everyone. You broke me I. Did it okay. Congratulations. Is your is your top row just Borat four times. So instead of watching. Recent, live news events. I just like hit in a room and indexed on my letterbox profile every single movie that I've watched I. Think I think I made it back to like may anyway one of the movies that I put on that profile was resistible. Jon Stewart movie and I did not give it a great rating and I was thinking about that movie and just how of its time it felt by by which I mean two, thousand, six, two, thousand, seven like that. Jon Stewart era and how much that rubbed both of us the wrong way and I can't help. Feeling that Borat. which was released in two thousand and six might just be a two thousand, six cultural product that doesn't really speak to twenty twenty in the same
