It's going to be as first vanilla ice on ice cert on these things a song where the lyrics is baby. This guy has an obsession. He's got a problem. It's an actually. I'm like curly. Has something in common with rex. Lumber te founding editor. bbc's list of the magazine is it that they were both insane. I actually you'll get sued for that and this is about being saved as well so Let's the croly tried to sue. A writer called nina hamlet for libel because she called him a black magician michetti he was into black magic and he said that this wasn't true and he tried to sue and he lost and he was declared bankrupt and then towards the end basically he became a big drug addict because he takes the love drugs before and then he became a real drug addicts And he died quite young But i was reading about nina and the according to wikipedia. She was a welsh artist and writer. Who was an expert on sailors shanties of became known as the queen of bohemia. She sounds incredible. Isn't she She basically Like one of the main people in soho around the nineteen thirties. Who knew absolutely everyone She had an incredible bohemian life. But actually when she soothes crowley became such big news that it really kind of to life and she became a bit of a alcoholic just walking around talibans in fitzroy via trading anecdotes. For drinks. he'd take on black magic amazed about other people's connections to the around this time and people who i thought would just legit humans. So the way cody i got into this whole world was i think he joined an older to school. The hermetic order of the golden dawn and another leading figure in that was yates. Which doesn't b yates. And he was actually him and his partner more gone famously his muse and also eating nesbitt. Who wrote the saami out if anyone's for at that Anyway exactly wow sort of make sense when you think about it you can imagine someone who is into widow magic writing that but yates was the chapter leader for this order.

It's called the battle of blyth road and the story is that he came through and he started propelling black magic at yates and the others as he was coming up the stairs. Yates was using white magic and the white magic toppled him over down the stairs. Now that's what they say but when you read into it what it actually was as he was coming up the stairs and yates and his buddy who is a boxer was kicking him down because he's one of the gladiators this white magic but this this order the idea was they wanted to discover a unified theory that explained the magical world so that they could bring endless possibilities. Magicians that was why they were sets up. And that's why yates joined. He wanted to use it for good And so he joins curly and he had mental there. the name of his mentor. alan bennett.

"And and down South in Madurai Meenakshi temple and he could see that a lot of the practice religion in India. The that was most obvious to people was a kind of public scam and the people are very easily impressed by somebody who has joined cloth sits by the side of the road Begs for alms looks pretty intense spot above his nose. And all this thing and I think I think he he he was a great cynic about this sort of thing if you read his book about Jesus which when I bought it was called Croly on Christ. That wasn't his title. He called it. The Gospel. According to Saint Bernard Shaw. He basically says that you know if you saw what. I'd seen in India. You'd understand why what we mean by the King's visiting Jesus and things like this he said I kings visit me when he's on his way to tae two kings meaning a local sheikh chief so to say and he was he. He translated everything he saw in their back into terms which might scientific sense to him. And he wasn't bamboozle by the mystery of mythology. That's all he wanted is the thing about crazy. He was always looking for the science of the magic so he he would have been. If people take themselves in manure and sat in a corner covered with Ash Temple in bananas over an acid depending which version you prefer a he he he would have just seen guide coveted ash and excrement and as we thought that was he interested in why they did it but otherwise. I think he'd he'd regard is as a superstitious world With a superstitious religion covered with a lot of superstitious moral coaching. The obscured a more ancient notice so in that sense. I don't think he he always talked about the Greasy Swamy. And I said if I behave to you some of these gurus to I wouldn't let you in my room but I'm I'm not. I'm not putting a barrier between me. I'm not saying I am the greatest lights and keep your distance. Bring your gifts to me and all this sort of thing. He could play the part. He could easily have set up in India as as a Yogi young and manufactured mental experiences and believers. But he didn't so. I think in that sense he was cynical about India culturally. Speaking again this. This might be a dangerous question but you as you might be able to answer that whilst the time and time and the relation between the British Empire and India at the time when Croly was there did that play part in his views on it or was he. You think free of dad off that colonialistic type of you. Well clearly didn't like colonial types of a tickly. He's viewpoint was complex. I don't think he he would have thought himself racially superior. He thought the English as he's a thought Indian culture civilization as a whole view that as what it did was vastly superior to Western industrialized slavery. That he'd come from and he thought that many of us were were sound and generous and interesting and all that on the other hand I think he would have felt that the largest number of the population of India the uneducated while they had certain native savvy as we say in skills ability to survive which was impressive I think he probably felt that. Western people were meant mentally more advanced. And in that insofar as that might be true in an individual case superior to the average Indian. But you've also got to. You've got to qualify. You qualify all of that. I think very difficult for an Englishman's go to India in one thousand nine hundred a not know that you're on the winning side to to a large extent and these people are in some ways dependent on the government on the wise government that you had imposed upon them quite escape that having said that he had no time for the typical. British officer tight. Who Imagine that. By being born English he was therefore superior he'd taken a lot from Madame levesque's praise all the Indian Shastri's and that was unusual he was also prepared to disqualify Christianity which is a major cultural. Move that relation. Yeah he was planning with his friend. Alan Bennett to bring Buddhism back to England if I think if Crowley hadn't had the Selima eruption in Cairo in nineteen hundred four we would have probably led the first sign from Rangoon with Alan Bennett and tried to persuade the British. That the the the only solution rationally to our problem with Buddhism he was incredibly impressed by the original Buddhist doctrine but again he was deeply unimpressed by the superstitious way that this was promulgated in Solano shrank as it's called now I think he's as well. There is a superb Buddhist philosophy actual practice of I thought was totally corrupt. And he talks about when he went to Rangoon. Seeing boy hydrocare fullest. Boy The huge. Yeah had an steeply. Ill sitting by the the famous Shriek. Pagoda in Rangoon. Surrounded by all these priests are all in different and he was obviously hoping for some kind of blessing the difference he saw between Buddhism original philosophy and the practice of but it was so great for him that he had little bit contempt for the the ordinary Buddhist Segovia this priest and he also knew anyway that this idea that they're all peace-loving was another fiction because as we've seen in Burma recently when they put his priests get angry as angry as anybody absolutely. Yeah true true. Did he get in direct touch and in good? I mean the risk barracks touch with the bone tradition old Tibetan Buddhism. Also at the time he his he never got to Tibet. Probably like skeet. Never got to Bet. They were in what was called. Little Tibet's new northern Kashmir sometimes called little Tibet curly never expressed an enormous amount of interest in Tibet. I think he he was interested in the Theravada tradition which is the oldest Buddhist tradition which in countenance curious available form in in Salon and I think having encountered that absorbed it written about it Argued himself with it eventually. Rejected it fundamentally. I think he'd had enough of.

"Alan bennett's brilliant play the madness of george. The third had its premiere in london in nineteen ninety two two hundred years after the reign of england's truly early mad king it will not take two hundred years for play about the madness of donald trump to be written probably more than two hundred of those plays. We'll be written in the next two hundred years and the trump playwrights will have a much easier time of it than alan bennett had because they will have the video and the tweets of all of the madness the tweets saying trump is king of israel the second coming of god the video of trump. I'm talking about wanting to buy greenland the video of trump talking about himself as the chosen one the video of trump saying he fell in love with the murderous murderess north korean dictator.

"And so if you've got someone that's in your life who doesn't mind you writing about it. Why wouldn't you? And how did you stab wish that she didn't mind was a conversation or did you just sort of start writing? And then she didn't object. I had written an autobiographical novel and try to sort of Senator publishers agents over the years. And that was before love need that was before love Nina, my memoir, in lettuce came up. So I'd written it and I sent it out a bit. And I'd always I better, not publish this is too close to the truth. And everyone's going to be really crossed because I talk about my mom, and I also talk about people being very nice to us and being a bit of snippy about my mom being single mom and all that kind of stuff. And so it was just sort of something I did. I was tinkering with it. And then completely by accident I published love Nina because publisher happen to being somebody's house. Am I'd send her some of the letters we'd found the letters and I was typing them up, emailing them to this woman who I'd worked for as a nanny, and this publisher happen to be in her house, and she happened to read them and offer me contract for the book. And so that was I mean Adam not such a huge thing I was fifty years old, imagined that it was just crazy. So I quickly wanted to rewrite letters and make myself look better and nicer and coverer but I couldn't because she got them to publish out already had them. So that was I had to stand behind them, exactly. As they were really. You didn't change that much. I took a few things out, but I wasn't allowed to change or add anything. So, you know, there I was being awful about Shakespeare's being offered about Thomas hardy, and being a bit flippant about Alan Bennett. I didn't you know, if I'd been able to edit the letters, I'd have said, oh. Alan bennett. He's writing these cutting edge television. He such a marvel but what I'd really written in one thousand nine hundred eighty two or whatever is written Allen Bennett really doesn't know how to make solid. He keeps putting oranges in it all that kind of thing. And so he's just this ordinary rather silly person instead of the marvel so that book came out. But of course that's what's so great about it. Get that completely as it turned out. That's what most people liked by here. Yeah. I think Allenwood quite like me to include some other stuff about him, but it put him on the map, Adam, of course. No. He's done what he's done. Well. And George Miller pops up as well. You some tools from Jonathan the soul. And there are lots of literary and creative people Yatra while I remember while your trip to the theater to see a play by Beckett. Yes. I'm back it with Stella, I think Stella fell asleep in the play. And he looked like a rag doll, fishermen or something. He was there. It was Billie Whitelaw, but it was just her saying being Bong being bombs. It was eighty five and you weren't having it as I recall. Yeah. I didn't think much to it. And also, I seen Becca sitting there and nobody believed me, and that sort of thing would always happen to me. I suddenly Prince Charles would be somewhere like low can they go not? Isn't it time? You saw Jackie O and I go, no. It was Jackie O and two days ago. I saw Ken Loach impeach express. It was on his own having a pizza, having Venise Yana. Honestly it with him. But nobody would believe me, it was, hey, I can believe that should be in patriots very late at night, though. Now that night when we saw Ken Loach was very exciting night. I had just done an event with your friend David sedaris. Oh, I wanted to talk to you about go. I would hesitate to call him my friend wished that he was your podcast with him. Made me die out. Good. I'm glad you. We're quite upset and said like you should have put warnings that he was going to talk about gouging eyeballs in ages..

"Just how famous the people around me were. It wasn't probably into much. Later that I realized exactly what rarely stood to represent. One of the things that took place in the sixties that quite early on, it became a soda street that people wrote about and poke fun at. And in fact, I think sort of early sixties. Alan Bennett writes a series of comedy sketches for the BBC will be on the margin. And in that was a play, the comedy schedule, regular comedy sketch based on a family that he referred to as the string alongs who are loosely based on people who lived in Gloucester, crescent people like class Homelen calling, hey, Kroft AJ. And of course, my father, my father was represented in the cartoon strip that then spun out of the strings by mount box for the listener magazine. And then of course, private. I used to do a column cold, the craze, and I think there was another one code lifetimes and then w one. So from quite early on people outside the cresent recognized it as a place that was sort of a couch will commute. Unity. That was quite elite and I think a lot of people if you were outside it, you would desperate to sort of look inside empire, founded it for what it stood full house. Is that what? Because it's a fascinating thing when you're surrounded by ceelo Jains historians philosophers playwrights comedians the rest of it as a kid looking back on and we'll come onto the study in which you've written a book and the full of as well formed that tank and the toll stories of much alternate in close to people. And they kept saying you should run them down and do something with them. And then of course, later in the early two, thousands, we had Nina still who love Nina, which was about a nanny lived in the street. And then of course, Alan Bennett wrote the lady in the van which was turned into into play and then a film and people kept saying you really need to get on a write this book because otherwise you're going to be beaten to it on on on your stores. So I started writing sofa bog Raphy of the cresent and people who lived in it. And I showed.
