We'll go for 19 yards on the past, and it will be first down and 10 of the 34 of Tennessee for Indianapolis, 19 Heinz in the backfield. It's give behinds off right tackle finds room at the 30 yard line, drag down across the 25 to the 24 yard line, 19 Heinz in his third year out of NC state. One little tip for our listeners. Today, you can hear Philip Rivers because it's so clear. There's so few fans, apparently, his active snap count color today is Delta Every time he stabbed the ball, he's saying Delta set Hut! It was that was kind of made famous with Peyton Manning and his Omaha. But this is something keep it out, but But he's so smart, be ready. At some point. He will think that he was usually green 80 guy wasn't first down and 10 from the 24 rivers to pass time floating sense. The pass out the Pittman coming across the field to the left side across the 15 yard line near the 10 yard line will pick up 14 yards. Malcolm Butler forced him out of bounds. Titans love to use a lot of crossing action and that passing game get some rubber out some guys in that time, No alley Cox ran in such a way legally, or he ran into the man who was tracking Pittman. On the 10 yard line of Tennessee on first down rivers fires into the and zoning complete flag is out intended for T Y Hilton Back. Judge throws the flag Kevin fired and coverage that time. Haven't fired having a tough time today, matching up With his Indianapolis Colts pass catchers and looks like there to get him for the penalty. I'm not sure whether the foul occurred in the end zone or not. Comes. John Husi, our referee. Pastor Chris Defense number 31 concert in the end zone of all places. The one yard line automatic, first down. First and inches at the won T Y Hilton. By the way, Barrett remarkably still does not have a touchdown catch since week seven last year. Actually, it was a good call was passing thought the foul occurred in the one person that would be absolutely where Jordan, Wilkins and Jacoby percent is in process. It's gonna keep the bull his way toward the line. He stood up. Did he get in? He did not rush on Evans, the middle linebacker standing up to Kobe per set. Now, do they? Yes, they overruled for a touchdown. I thought he was short as well on my naked eye, But the official from the side came running in and said touched down in there. We have the goal line shot. It looks like Hurry. Laces of that football. It was turned up, right? Just barely crossed over That place is a much done. And as soon as that ball across the point, that's a touchdown. Football. There is stretched out 5%, I think just barely nix the front of that plane, but again doesn't matter. It was very close. It was a good hit by Evans, but I do think it's going to stand to be touched him. I was watching the near side line's been looked to me like he was putting up the inches mark, but instead it was the two hands for the touchdown. Just not completely extended. It was a fake, T o Michael Harris by Jacoby Percent. So you're asking for full extension on while he's running full speed? Yes, exactly. I understand. Okay. Normally, you kind of just see you know the 45 9 to 45 degree angles. You don't get the full extension, but Will pass that along to the league. I don't ask for much. It goes for a touchdown, one yard 2% extra point coming from Rodrigo Blankenship. Staff placement and the kick is good, and we're tied once again, 12 51 to go. Second quarter cults have tied the Titans at 14, and you're listening to football Sunday on ESPN radio..
Naples mourns Diego Maradona

And if you watch it alone documentary. That was published a year or two ago and and what that experience was like fort madonna himself but for the fans of apple. And why didn't meant how they were looked down upon from the rest of italy and he singlehandedly seemingly just took napoli and put in a whole different platform and a whole different atmosphere. One that they did not have access to before and haven't really had access to since the madonna became bigger than live bigger. That live in. China became bigger than live in napoli. When you think about the nineteen ninety world cup semi-final and that that's semi final happened to be at dina against italy. Play some bala stadium in napoli. Yes and the sort of conflict of emotion of the the people in naples. Cuomo supporting here. Yes that was amazing. Wasn't what am i supposed to support italy because see the rest of italy look down upon us for a long long period of time.

How big of a figure he was naples. Yeah
Fresh update on "alley" discussed on Our American Stories
"With a long history that begins with the fruit cart in 18 59. Here is Alex Castle, the master distiller at old Dominic Distillery. Tell us the history of this Memphis family business. So one of the best things to me about working for all Dominic and Deacon Alley and company. Is the history of it. History dates back to 18 66. And it is very tangible history that whole family held on to so many documents and ledger books and letters. I don't know what they were thinking when they held onto it all but I know we're very happy that it's there. Now. Family history isn't just some story that's been passed down by word of mouth. It is a history that Is very, very real and that we can show To everyone. Just how often take that story is and to be able to be a part of such an authentic story and hopefully be a part of it. It's history. Eventually. It's just it's very rewarding. So our founder, Dominico Canali was an Italian immigrant when he came over to the states in 18 59. Landed in New Orleans and decided take a river about up to Memphis. They already had family here is Uncle head of business. Already he decides to work for his uncle. That building is literally about 100 yards from the current distillery. For him for a couple years and decided to start his own company in 18 66, at which time he found a deacon alley and company started off as a modest will fruit cards and he would just go up and down what is now front street. Selling fruit. Over the years. That group became a much bigger distribution company started distributing beer because he had refrigerated trucks and decided In the midst of all of that to you found all Dominic whiskey. He did not just still his own product, but he did by age product barrels from other states. So we have records of barrels from Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and he would bring them down on the railroads and lend him here under the label of all, Dominic It was actually one of the biggest whisky brands in these southern region during that time, and, of course, Prohibition hits. And so all Dominic was he had to stop being produced. Fortunately, the other parts of the company continued on the fruit distribution. The beer distribution all of that continued on through Prohibition. And sadly, Dominique Oh, did not see the repeal of prohibition. He actually died just a few days before his repealed. Deacon Alley in company continued on Just without the whisky. Bring it up to you. I guess it was the late nineties, they actually sold off the food distribution but still maintain the beer distribution that they had. And so they were the Anheuser Pissed distributor in Confessed on then in 2010. I believe it was actually sold that off as well. And so they kind of had lost all of their Memphis foothold. They had other businesses. Other investments, just nothing actually in Memphis, and so in 2013 when they found a bottle of Dominic Toddy. Basically, they found this bottle. Oh, So ax Hield and they decided to crack it open. Believe one of them actually tasted the liquid but had that liquid analyzed. They send it to California. To see if we could figure out what actually was in that product because with all of the documents that the family held onto He never held onto the recipe for this product. Figure, and so with the help of a lab in California, they learned different components that were present in that bottle couldn't figure out the exact ratios or anything like that. So no specific recipe, But they were able to figure out what was in it. And then from there, we essentially reversed, engineered it. And so today's president. Chris Canali Jr. Wanted to see the company get back to Memphis wanted more than just their headquarters to be here. He decided this seems like a cool idea. Someone said, Well, why don't you sell the brand? He said. No thistles how we get back to Memphis, And so he and his cousin Alex Canali decided to open up what is now old Dominic Distillery. Construction project officially started in 2015. And that was the same year that they decided tol ring on a head distiller. And I was lucky enough to get a message on lengthen. Had nothing better to do. I said, Sure, I'll come down for an interview and ended up deciding to move to Memphis that same year, and so about a year of construction, and we were actually ready to produce the first whiskey. Just out of all dominant, but the first was he produced in Memphis. Ever. There were no distilleries here even before Prohibition s o December of 2016 was kind of a big year for all down again for Memphis. I'm in a flash forward a couple months maybe 2017 and we were actually finished with all of construction and open to the public for first tours beginning of May, And since then we have added multiple products. We now have two vodkas way have our Memphis toddy. We have a gin that's about to come out. And we also have our healing station, Bourbon and even the filling station line. Where about to release even more products under it, So it's been a very, very busy 2 2.5 years on again. You're listeningto Alex.
Dance Theatre of Harlem Takes Ballet Outside The Theater
"Let's get back to ballet dancers. Alexandra hutchinson and derek brockton. They're part of the dance theatre of harlem twenty twenty company and co produced the viral video dancing through harlem also with this virginia johnson. She's the dance theatre of harlem artistic director. We got this message from brandy in maryland. I tina and i took ballet from about the time. I was four or five time i was twelve. I ended up having to quit because of the cost of valet lessons. But the thing that resonates for me is that many years later as an adult. I remember seeing alvin ailey performed for the first time and thinking my goodness if i had known that there were people like this people like me. Look like me who were doing ballet and other forms of dance. I might have thought really differently about what was possible for me as a dancer both in terms of where i could go even for dances a career but also in terms of relation to my party And thinking always that. I didn't have the right body to be a ballet dancer or i was too sick or too heavy. Thanks so much for sharing your story brandy alley any of what brandy said resonate with you. Yes it does It's so important to have role models to look up to when you're growing up so when i was at the washington school of ballet. I was at the virginia johnson scholar and i got to meet with her and i was introduced to some of the company and saw performance. And i still remember that to this day. Because it's so important when you're growing up to see that it is possible to achieve your dreams and so seeing other beautiful dancers. That look like me on stage was all i needed to give me that that push not courage to do it myself. You know for many children particularly little girls. There's this pervasive image of ballerinas very small and thin and pale and t and sort of graceful delicate whistle but as we said or dancers are are athletes. You're crazy strong and muscular derrick. Talk about some of the misconceptions surrounding ballet. And how maybe there's some subconscious racism or sexism at play there. There absolutely is a little bit. We find in ballet thought. It is about tradition so there are things that have been done a certain way for a very long time and when people see things that do not fit that norm it can. It can be fearful for them. That's the word because they're not used to it so seeing brown dancer in a line of all these a white ones it throws those but we opt to kind of kings perspective and no. There's nothing terrible read about it. It's just not what we're used to. And we have to accommodate that. It's a representation really really matters. And that's why i feel this video. Dancing do harlem has done so well because it is really offering so many people an opportunity to see themselves doing something that maybe they haven't seen before. I know we only have the two of you for another minute before. You have to go to rehearsal but alexandra very quickly talk about how art form is is giving you space to comment on reflect on some of the social justice questions that have arisen in the past few months yes So social justice is an issue today as it was when arthur mitchell founded the company fifty one years ago and so when we were given the task to create a video for harlem week we really wanted to set the bar really high and do our best because we knew that through social media you can reach so many more people and like virginia was saying earlier we now have to learn to put out social media instead of live performance. And so that's why we put our heart and soul into it because we knew that our is can be a form of protest and so showing places of harlem that people haven't necessarily seen in a beautiful light and dancing and being joyful in a time of so much tragedy Can bring people hope. That's alexandra hutchinson derek brockton. They're both members of the dance theatre of harlem twenty twenty company. They co produce dancing through harlem in part to celebrate the theatre's fiftieth anniversary alley. And derek. i gotta get to class so we'll let you go but thanks for joining us. Thank you for having us. Thank you so much for having
Real Madrid Cruise Past Inter
"Allie moreno joins us alley weeping harsh real madrid and rightly so but they pulled a performance. I when it was needed today yet. They did and even before the red card happened. I thought that the we're far better than inter Deploying to where you just saw full control through the with grows and moderate and then look at rutgers helping defensively other guards serving us to link and even have to sometimes drifting inside and you just saw team that was fooling controlled through the middle area of the field in doing that Enter just been having sort of said. They didn't have any sort of connection to martinez or luke outcome for a long time in the first half even at breda to read you read build the momentum building momentum really caring the procession really carrying the pace of the game and enter was merely reacting to that. I thought it was a flat performance when you need a little bit of life and energy and urgency for inter he just. Wasn't there a little bit of life early on in the second half and that was about it appear team and they were the two point here. And what was wrong with said today vega question. Obviously it was not enough to put real madrid in into any danger and The control the game from the beginning on after the the red card of and Yacht it they look the whole game like the the certain winner.

Because that's filed too long since it happened the last time and they were expecting big things from the champions league so now it looks really kind of ugly if they can go through in the champions league and and create only more uncertainty around around into milan right now

New York City to Close Public Schools Again as Virus Cases Rise
"I was in New York City. Public schools shut their doors today because of the 3% positivity rate. As we've been discussing the Nassau and Suffolk County executives are both strongly disagreeing with Mayor De Blasio is decision to do that and to use that threshold. Positivity rate in National County is 3.5% even higher and Suffolk, But Nassau County executive Laura Current is leaving school closures up to the 56 local school district's in the county and says she would only order a Countywide closure if they hit 9%. That's the state standard three times the threshold the city is using. Talk about that and more now with Nassau County executive Laura current. She also has an article in New York magazine called Held Long Island County fought Covert. 19, a county executive looks back at the first wave. Executive Current. Always good to have you on Welcome back to W N. Y C. Good morning, Brian. And thank you very much for having me back. So, your statement says, Quote I strongly disagree with Mayor De Blasio is decision to close down schools in New York City. I want to make clear to our residents that I will do everything I can to keep our schools open, unquote. Why criticize the mayor by name there rather than just make your own decision for Nassau County. Well, I felt it was important, since this is really dominating the news cycle and, of course, New York City News really dominates the news in the suburbs. I just wanted to make it very clear to our residents. That the safest place for kids right now is in school. The schools, you know, it's a little bit different in Nassau County. So in the city, the mayor is in charge of the schools. Out here in Nassau County. We have 56 independent school district with their own elected boards. They make their own policy and make their own decisions, of course, with guidance from the state. Um, but my goal is to make sure that our health department, our county Health department Is working with them, helping interpret the guidance, helping them with contact tracing etcetera, and we've made very good relationships. So my goal is to get the word out there that it's very important for kids to stay in school right now. As I said, it's the safest place for kids are 56 school districts have really and I have kids in public school myself. They've done a fantastic job at this social distancing and ensuring math compliance and having kids on alternate days and all of that. They've really recalibrated quickly, and we're not seeing transmission within the school buildings. So you know, you did mention where a 3.5 yesterday. Our latest number was 3.3% that is concerning because we had been down it around 1% positivity rate, but the uptick isn't happening in the schools. It's not happening in the businesses and the gyms and the bowling alleys. It's really happening at these social gatherings, and I know that a lot of people have Covad fatigue. But people are still having these sweet sixteens and going off to other states to have big weddings and then coming back. That's where we're seeing the uptick. So I'm saying to everyone in the You can hear my voice. If you know you're not worried about yourself. You're not worried about your family. Think about the kids who need to be in school. Think about the businesses that need to operate. Keep people working. And, um, you know, as I said, school is safe right now, and I'm closing schools should be a last resort. That's what the CDC Protocol say in anything like a flu like pandemic Closing schools is the last resort. In March. It made sense. We got to that point We had 50% You know, we're getting into 50% positivity rate. At that point. It makes sense. At this point. It just doesn't make

Trump fires nation's top election security official who disputed fraud claims
"A town were. Disagreement is par for the course. Today there was one thing that almost all of washington could agree on namely that the government's top election security cyber cyber security official. Chris crabs did a great job protecting our democracy and did not deserve to be fired. Chris crabs was dismissed last night via presidential tweet after he repeatedly pushed back on trump's claims of election fraud and after his agency refused white house. Requests to edit or remove informational accurate content which was pushing back against trump's false election claims most notably krebs cybersecurity and infrastructure. Security agency cisa. It's a unit within the department of homeland security last week called the november third election quote the most secure in american history adding that there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes changed votes or was in any way compromised and quote democrats today reacted to krebs firing with predictable outrage but notably they were joined by many republicans including some of the president's most ardent defenders in congress to presents variety to the confusion entails. I'm sure i'm not the only one that we'd like. Return to more of a lot on what's normally of course. Well chris krebs is rightfully earning plaudits in an enhanced reputation for a job. Well done and for standing up to this president. This lack of normalcy is likely to continue for the remaining nine weeks left to go in this administration. We all need a way to get through it. So i'm happy to give you one. I'm happy say the joining us now to discuss this story and others is someone who obviously needs no introduction on this show or anywhere else the inestimable. Rachel meadow rachel. It is so great to see you here. I'm going to ask you the first question on behalf of all of your viewers how are you. I am great valley and let me just start by saying how thankful i am to you for doing for stepping in for me on zero notice and doing this at length. You've just been fantastic and my staff loves working with you and you just. I've been watching every night and you guys are doing an amazing job and so i am grateful to you for making it possible for me to be important which is Which has been a trip. But i'm i'm fine. I have continued to test negative through this whole thing. Which means that. I'm getting close to the end of my quarantine period. I will hopefully think potentially be back hosting either tomorrow night or the night after in which case i will have more to say about where i been in what i've been doing and what it's been like. I definitely have some stuff to say about that. And i want to let people know what's been going on but bottom line is i'm grateful to you and i'm finding i will be back in something that looks like your chair pretty said well you come in the time that is needed for you to come and as i remind our viewers all the time This continues to be your staff who put the show together and it has your dna and it's so we're we're glad for that. I want to ask you about this topic. We were just talking about chris. Crabs a man who was responsible for trying to keep at least outside interference and cyber interference out of our election. He told people last week he thought he was going to get fired and then last night in typical fashion. He got fired by tweet for doing his job. The president directly contradicted him saying he was wrong about what he said. This election was not safe. Votes were changed votes that were cast for trump became biden votes and chris. Krebs is now no longer there. What do you make of this. I a couple of things i mean. In terms of krebs himself. I feel like it's worth reflecting. On the fact that i don't know that there is anybody else who has served particularly at a high level in the trump administration who has come out of it not just with an enhanced reputation for having done a job very well and done right by the country and taking something. That was very very difficult. That other people have had a really hard time with and sort of nailing it doing it well but also leaving not just with his badge of honor of being fired by the president for having done his job well leaving without having compromised himself without having bit his tongue without having kowtowed to the president or compromised himself in any way that was trying to either stave off himself being fired or trying not to rock the boat or trying to go along to get along. Which so many good people have fallen prey to because that's the way the president manipulates people gets what he wants and so i think chris crabs is being lauded justifiably by people on all sides of the ideological spectrum and all levels of government for having done a really good job but he also really in some ways stands alone in terms of having done well and done right and not having bent himself to the vagaries of this president. I think that's really important. I will also say the alley. That i think there's an institutional thing to watch out for. Because part of the reason we started talking about crabs potentially being fired last week was when a divisional chief at cisa got fired. Then krebs himself got fired. His deputy also got fired. What's happened is this agency has been decapitated and that has a couple of risks. One is that this is a dozen just work on election security. They are responsible for example for protecting vaccine. Researchers from what appears to be a robust international malign effort to interfere with and steal vaccine data by actors like potentially north korea iran russia That's really important. We reported in recent weeks on hospitals being hit with ransomware attacks russian-speaking gangs from the former soviet union hitting us hospitals in the middle of this pandemic with ransomware attacks and locking their computer systems. That's also with instances remain. We need an agency. That's good at that stuff but also in terms of the election. i mean the there are still being counted. There are recounts happening. there are certification. Tallies that are coming up and people including senators on the intelligence committee have warned that this is one of the times when we are quite vulnerable to disinformation and potentially foreign interference. Somebody might target the understanding of the american people to try to confuse us an upset us and muddied the result of the election now as it is being finalized and finally tabulated and so two houses a plan so well not just to have him ousted but to have all the whole upper echelons of the agency taken out for these reasons at this time is very dangerous for lots of different reasons. And i'm i'm very very uncomfortable with not just what this means for but what the implications are for our national security one of the reasons i would like you back is because rather than doing it myself. I'd like to hear your narration of this legal clown car. That is driving around the united states stopping michigan last night with the board of canvassers in wayne. County not agreeing to certify detroit's election results than fifteen million three hours later after getting pressure decided to do so. Rudy giuliani walking into a court. Case after twenty eight years Walk into a courtroom in philadelphia not really understanding the law very well. Republicans putting pressure on the secretary of state of georgia. It is a bit of a clown car but they are doing stuff to stop this election from being certified and to stop the administration from taking the reins and getting their transition moving. Yeah that's right. And i think you had really interesting conversation. Stacey abrams about this earlier in the hour alley. And i. I think that one thing. That's that's interesting that we can see at work is what you were talking about with her about the secretary of state and georgia the republican secretary of state who's absolutely been involved in contentious voting rights disputes with voting rights advocates like abrahams with democrats in georgia but his emerging here as a sort of normal republican and not a trump republican in the sense that he's not exactly a champion of voting rights in georgia georgia's had all these troubles but he's also not willing to go along with the insanity of the trump republican claims that the georgia election should be thrown out because of some magic dust that they've imagined they can cast over those election results so i do think that this is accelerating in some small ways with republican elections officials whether it's local commissioners in pennsylvania or the secretary of state in georgia or other people who are just sort of you know regular elected officials who are responsible for election integrity finding themselves affronted by the president and his legal team are trying to do in a way that i think maybe is giving us a little bit of a peak had a post trump republican party or at least where the schism might be between trump and and republicanism as we move forward.

We had a great convention calendar In once it became clear over time that that wasn't gonna happen. We had to shift immediately to You know we pulled our domestic and international advertising. We shifted to community support. We shifted to things like stations To be able to put people eventually back in in hotels But the impacts for the hospitality community and anyone in the live event. Business has been Extreme houston i operates. The george brown convention center avenida houston jones hall worthy miller outdoor theatre among other venues. While many if not all those venues very much this at the moment and haven't been able to for a number of months. Can some events conventions meetings concerts. Would you be scheduled at least several months out. Maybe if not a year or more from now well we're looking at at. I'll get to the performance. Venue in a moment but You know we're looking at next year Currently and what are our best View of it is today and talking to all of our convention. Clients is We're seeing shift from q one and q two two major conventions that have moved back into q. Three possibly q four. We're not seeing as many outhouse cancellations which is good news. I think that the vaccine news. is Is the light at the end of the tunnel will see how it's ultimately distributed and brought to scale Hopefully that will be over the first six months of twenty twenty one But but some green shoots as we see them as you know for example Offshore technology conference otc move from may back to august and we'll see some additional shifts of some major conventions that will move back into into q three and q four so after july. first we have seen No cancellations related to covid On our calendar so the second half of the year could be A busy convention year. In the meantime what can and is being done through the george r brown convention center these days. I think if you look at some of these small safe events that were able to do For for example the symphony in jones hall Outdoor programming again. That's that's physically distanced. That safe safeties number one priority for for any of our attendees for any guests for travelers for that matter. You know that's why. We've rolled out the the houston clean initiative in partnership with many of the sports events and venues And hospitality sector Whether that be restaurants or hotels is houston clean Is a promise to ease or anyone that may travel is. There's there's a minimum amount of Protocols that each one that takes this pledge we'll put into place so as we develop this level of confidence with with attendees travelers. Hopefully we'll be able to to be able to get That visitor economy in the hospitality economy be able to be restarted. But there are some events that you're you're able to do where we're going to be Hosting events down here at the the avenida friday night there will be The alley theatre will have their Their tree lighting Down here The ice at discovery green there are events small in nature that you're able to do At this period of time but safety is the number one
The Basilisks Stare feat. Nabiyah Be & Evan Whitten
"Once upon a time there was an armourer named martin. Martin spent his days working with metal using it to create glistening swords sparkling shields and full suits of yes glittering armor and everyone agreed that of all the arms in the city. Martin was the greatest. Oh you should see. The sword mar made for me last week. It schumer's like moonlight on the water. Well you should see the shield he made for me. It glistened like the stars. I don't doubt it. The suit of armor he made for me is so shining so bright. It's reflects i chimera. Martin lived with his children natalia. And conrad in a tiny house at the edge of town. Martin's shop was in the basement talia and conrad loved traipsing down the steps to watch their father work i. He retired on his thick leather apron. Then he would heat up his medal into glow to fiery yellowish orange and grew soft and bendable after that he would use a heavy iron hammer to forge the metal into all different shapes. Then you would let the metal cool and he polished rubbing and scrubbing until indeed. It reflected like a mirror one summer morning. Martin told natalia conrad that he would be gone for the day on business. Listen you to. I need to deliver a full suit of armor to a customer who lives far off in the countryside. He turned to natalia natalia. You're the oldest. So i want you to look after your little brother. While i'm gone of course father i'd be happy to conrad rolled his eyes. Oh come on father. I don't need my older sister to babysit. I'm a big kid now. I know you're a big kid. Conrad and getting bigger every day. But for now you'll do. Your sister says hokey dokie. I have a long trip ahead of me. Need to skedaddle. Have fun today. My dears martin kissed his children goodbye and out the door as he disappeared down the street. Natalia turned to conrad with twinkling eyes. I have an idea little brother. The circus is in town. They're performing in the market square right in the middle of the city. Would you like to see it. Conrad's face broke into a grin. You bet i liked to see the circus. Let's go when natalia and conrad reached the market square. They were greeted by all sorts of enchanting sites. Agile walkers tiptoeing towering tightropes graceful acrobats swinging from flying trapezes plus nimble-fingered jugglers funny face clowns and hearted riders standing breath and tall on the backs of gleaming galloping horses during a break in the show. Natalia and conrad wandered around the square and saw vendors selling all sorts of goodies toys. Books candies but then. Hey natalia something else caught conrad's look over there. Look conrad pointed toward a jagged heap of stones in a shadowy narrow alley off the square. There's the old stone building to one worthy. Say the bacilus cliffs. Natalia felt her blood run. Cold everyone in town knew the legend of the basilisk. It was said that the bacilus kept the body of a dragon. The head of a rooster tail of a serpent down in the dink dark cellar of the old stone building. The bacilus stood guard over a magnificent treasure and if you stared into the bacilus glowing red eyes you would immediately turn to stone so sister conrad's mouth lifted into a mischievous smile. Are you thinking what i'm thinking. Natalia's is grew wide. Wait a minute brother. Your not thinking of actually going in there are you. What about the bassil. Ihsc bacilus sh- massa lisk don't be such a 'fraidy cat sys like dads said. I'm a big kid now. And i'm going to prove it
UNTO THE SECOND GENERATION
"A young veteran tells how few rupp experiences pushed him into a and how he was therefore spared years of suffering. My eyes opened onto a hazy world. Two fuzzy came into focus slowly. I realized i was in bed. And that the objects were my feet in case in a harness affair. I blinked slowly as i shifted my gaze to my arms. They also were held in some sort of strap or to gradually consciousness. Returned enough to let me know. I was in a hospital looked about the room. At one end of the bed near the foot was a printed card and beneath that was a chartered graph. I couldn't focus enough to make out the chart. But the card contained two words acute alcoholism. Then it came to me. I was in a hospital. The place hawaii the year. Nineteen forty eight. I closed my eyes and tried to think. I remembered having had a little drink of whiskey with a can of warm beer as a chaser. Then something happened. What was it. i couldn't recall. I opened my eyes again and a shadow fell across the bed. Standing there was a gray haired man tall trim and in uniform. There were gold bars on his shoulders. I'm in the us navy. This must be the doctor. He asked how i felt. I didn't reply. A cormon stood beside him. The doctor motion to the corman to undo my straightjacket and leg restraints. I moved about a little. The doctor sat down beside the bed and asked me how i felt. Do you know why you're in here. He queried. I could tell him a lot of reasons why i am here in elke ward at the age of twenty. I don't know how. I got here this trip but it doesn't matter very much i'm an alcoholic. Don't mince words. i'm a rummy. I can't control my drinking anymore. It controls me. I remember back in high school. When i was fifteen we all had lockers. The other pupils kept books pencils paper gym equipment and such stuff in their lockers. I did too. I also kept beer at fifteen. Was strictly a beer drinker. I didn't graduate to the hard stuff until i was sixteen. The other kids would light out for the hamburger hud's or the ice cream parlors. The pizza joins or bowling alleys after football games and dances. I didn't. I went to saloons where i could get drinks. I didn't give a whoop about anything. Scholastic i got a job after school pumping gas and worked until ten or eleven. At night i was the kid of the crew. I tried to mimic the talk ideas moods and even the drinking of the older man. It hurt to be considered a kid. I talked out of the side of my mouth as they did. I smoke this much. Tried to drink as much and do everything they did. Only more so. I found i could boost my income by selling gas. Coupons rationing was in effect. Then that i'd taken in earlier from other customers by filching nichols from the coke machine by short sticking customers on oil and by selling oil. I drained out of other cars. School was getting to be one big bore. I was skipping classes about two days a week and doing no book work whatever. I was failing in everything. The principal had no alternative but to expel me. I beat him to it. I quit when i was just past sixteen. I had a drinking problem on my hands even at that time. So did my parents. They both drank like fish. They had been drinking for many years. And we're getting progressively worse. Homelife didn't mean much to me. They were kind when they thought about it. But that wasn't often i wanted love and affection but i didn't get it. I did as i pleased most of the time. I wasn't burdened with parental guidance. And i didn't want any. I ran away for the second time with another lad. We got to omaha for my home in chicago. We headed out of town walking. No money cold and hungry. It was late at night. We spotted a church in a small town. We broke open a window and got inside. We started to light some matches to see but the draft blew them out so we rolled old newspapers together and made torches to find a good soft pugh and get some sleep. My torch blazed madly in the pew caught fire. We heard some yells outside. A busload of basketball players had been passing and saw the flames. They summoned the fire department. And the sheriff. I spent the next three days in a sell. My dad who was a newspaper man and had some connections. Had meantime put a stop on me. And i guess that report went all over the country. We were identified. And i was put on a train for chicago. The sheriff bad as goodbye very happily. I think dad paid him something to let me go

They talked one million earlier this week. Hospitalizations have jumped nearly 35% over the past two weeks. Dr. Mark Alley, the state's health secretary, says county struggling to control the spread may not get two weeks before being forced to move back into a stricter tear and implement more restrictions. We've today really had counties moved back just one tear in the time. That may not be appropriate to get the kind of response that we need the blunt that rate of rise that you saw, and then, of course, we've often allowed counties toe wait a full three days before reverting back to The here the more restrictive tear that they are being asked to move to. And even that might need to be reconsidered.

NFL Playoff Futures: Who will make the 2020 post-season?
"Wanted to talk about playoff odds and not not. Just who's gonna make the playoffs but also the nfc the nfc's a really weird place. The saints are plus three fifty to win this to in the nfc. None of us like the saints even are as good as they looked last week against tampa. There's still this unease with because breezes arm strength. It just makes me nervous. I'm starting to talk myself into the saints. Okay yeah okay so a couple of things number one. Smart people in july and august said wait until brady gets half a season under his belt and they're going to get better you know. No one cares. More about the details. And tom brady doesn't have a training. Camp does not as doesn't put pads on till till august fifteenth. He's gonna get better and better and better and so week one when when the bucks and the saints played. I threw that out. I said this this doesn't matter bracing to get better and better better. This was the closing the gap game for me. And then i didn't see that and obviously they were there whipped everywhere you know. Ali maher pet being out was a big thing with with with with people who started the game. But i think that this was bigger than than alley marquette quite frankly okay The the saints were able to get a four man rush the entire game. Are they able to pressure brady on half of his dropbacks when they had a four man rush. That's really good Since marcus davenport's come back in week five had the most pressures in football pressuring and football There's just something there. The problem at the beginning of the year was that lattimore and marcus williams were bad and those are two pretty good players and i think that you know a good pass rush. Ken console that those guys can get better and so with with brees. Listen there are. There are problems with the fact. You can't throw down the field. The offensive line is not as good as it has been in years hospice and matter with brees because he gets rid of the ball and a second. It's like peyton manning he doesn't need you know the the the best offensive line in the world and then lattimore who we were kind of dunking on because at one point he was giving almost a perfect passer rating. He owns mike evans. He own them. He is not given up a reception. Mike evans the last three games. They've played and so when if those guys play in the playoffs again. There's that match up. So i i don't. I'm feeling better about the saints. Now that i was two three weeks ago. Good coaching staff. I gary coaching staff. Yeah so the fear in this isn't just the saints but the fear is all right. What happens at their downtown in a playoff game. It's basically the lamar jackson corollary. How am i feeling down. Thirteen to three in the second quarter and they've just done a three and out. What were my emotions in that moment. That's my the saints because a breeze. I think that because they don't you don't think they're capable of a big play. Is that your fear if teams though like all right. They've got to air this out. They've got to quicken the pace and also it's amazing to me a cameras probably been the. Mvp think it's either him cook mahomes berry some order Okay i'm amazed at teams aren't just like all right. We're taking him out like bell. Check in his prime your. He got added as kids to the coaching staff and decided to throw a fight street. Drafts fail check All he would do me like chimeras not beating me. You can have everyone else on the saints. I'm not getting beat by that guy. I'm falling everywhere he goes. We're hitting him constantly. He's not beating me. Why don't teams do that with them. I don't get it okay. So first of all they have a of weapons. Thanks so she when michael. Thomas is healthy There's a lot they can do their you know. I think peter king early breakdown. His column this week about there was a play where the bucks dropped eight men into coverage and it was a weird play. They had their fullbacks put out wide and brees hit a random tight end. Adam traveling for a touchdown even throwing into eight men like that. There's just something their breezes still really really good so. I think it's a bit simplistic to say. Just take away kamara because they can do other stuff And they can. They can change their game plan so

Onion Domestication and Improvement
"We're going to talk about domestication again of a unique vegetable and when you ask people what their favorite vegetable is very few people say the onion however it's hard to think of vegetable or plant item for that matter. That has a more ubiquitous place in our culinary universe. It's you know the powders. The the the the basic parts of onion are important flavor in many different things that we consume and i think about just about everything i cook starts chopping up and onion so i wanted to pursue. Where did it come from. How did we get it. Where is it going. And so we're speaking with dr mike heavy. He's a he works with the. Usda agricultural research service in madison wisconsin and also as a faculty member in a department of horticulture. So welcome to the podcast. dr heavy. thank you so much. This is really cool. I think i actually got to see you. Give a talk once. And i can't remember where it where it was but i think what did you ever give talk in savannah georgia at the national onion association meeting. Yes i did about four five years ago. We had a joint meeting between the national onion association and then all the research community. I think we met there. Yeah that's i seem to remember that. Yeah i think. I may have asked you at the time too. If you'd be a guest on the podcast and just takes time so. Let's talk about onions. Like i mentioned before it has such an important culinary value. Where did it come from end. Do natural populations still exist. So the onion like many of our grain and vegetable and fruit crops was domesticated in central asia specifically iran. Turkmenistan afghanistan that area and it spread from there around the world and is now consumed in produced on every continent except in artika. There are still the most closely related. Wild specie is called alien babalola by and that grows naturally still in the kopech. Dr region which forms the border between northern iran and southern turkmenistan. And so the wild relatives still exists. There probably was in prehistory was more widely distributed but We can still find alien. Below by inet area oval ovalles. That was a discovery or at least a characterization by vavilov the species is named after him. Allie taxonomy in the former soviet union named this wild species after nikolai. About by batalov. Okay i never remember seeing so much about his his expeditions into places like iran. Turkmenistan you that he was Know prolific in that area. So but that makes sense to when you talk about the species of wild onion. I know that even here in florida there are things that they haul a florida. Wild onion and in chicago is named by from indigenous peoples term for stinky onion. So are these related to the major culinary onions or are these some kind of distant relative first of all the alliens. The genus of onion is distributed around the northern hemisphere and here in north america. Most albums have a seven chromosomes whereas onion and garlic chai have a basic chromosome number of eight. So they're distant relatives and we can't cross them with onion but they do have unique flavors in many places there still collected in consumed but really are very distantly related to the onion that we know. Have there been any efforts that you're aware of to domesticate those regional varieties that are grown with the seven chromosome ones that are growing around. Say the native united states. Yes you do find him showing up. Sometimes farmers markets different species out west in the california in the rockies. There are numerous albums that can be collected in consumed but to my knowledge. There's no effort to really Breed them in and develop some unique flavors or production characteristics from them so the primarily just collected so when you talk about the actual album that was used that is the forefather of the modern onion. Who was really the first to domesticate that they would have been probably nomadic tribes in central asia most of the central asian republics of the former soviet union onion and many of its wild relatives naturally exist and probably these people's started collecting him in eating them initially and ultimately i feel Asexually propagated them. Much like you would. Shall it today break apart. The basal plate planet and then i think probably seed production at conscious breeding occurred later but it would have been nomadic tribes in central asia tens of thousands of years ago they mostly use it for food flavoring or were there other potential uses of onion now. That's an interesting question that has been quite a topic of debate. A couple of things may have played an important role in the domestication of onion. One of them is that Because it was an editorial form is a perennial grows every year. It sprouts very early in the spring and many of your listeners may grow chives and the green leaves of tribes. Come out very early in while alley. That's true as well. It's not a good source of vitamin c. But it does have vitamin cs. I think you could think about a nomadic tribes taking advantage of that early green growth of the leaves in the spring as a source of vitamin c and potentially other vitamins and flavorings but the taste is also has to have an effect. I think and. I wonder if maybe wasn't important to mask off. Flavors maybe for some ranson meets or different foods that may not have it have an off taste and that maybe the early domesticated is used that straw salt pungency flavor compounds in the album's to their benefit.
The Birth of the Animal Rights Movement
"Ernest. Friburg joins us. Now he is the head of the history department at the university of tennessee and his most recent book is called a traitor to his species. Henry bergh and the birth of the animal rights movement ernest. Thanks for being here my blizzard. Thank you all right. We have to start with the obvious question because this is not a household name for most people who was henry burgh will he was the founder of the aspca and brought the idea of an animal welfare movement animal rights laws to the united states. Right after the civil war in eighteen sixty six. Your area of expertise is nineteenth and twentieth century. Social and cultural history. It's easy to see why your last book. The age of edison looked at the effects of electricity on society. What got you from there to looking at henry bergh and the birth of the animal rights movement. Well in all my work. I think i've been interested in the way this time period. We sort of called the gilded age. The progressive era into world war one the way this shaped the modern world the world that we live in two books ago. I wrote about the origin of civil liberties civil Free speech rights coming out of world war one. The edison book was looking at are both love and hatred of technology. In this case. I was interested in the way. If you look at a an image of nineteenth century city you see horses and of course. There are many many other animals very closely together with with people in the streets but by the nineteen twenty s. That's not the case anymore. In a sense this you know. Our urban environment has been stripped of animals. One historian described it. As as you know we live in a world where in urban environments at least we only have pets and pests and i thought that that captured that that pretty well so i was interested in that transition and i think the animal welfare movement and henry berg's career in particular kind of captures the beginning of some really profound changes in the relationship between humans and animals that started in that time period ended israeli. Still with us today. To what extent is that that change the decline of animals in urban environments. A consequence of the animal rights movement and to what extent is that. Really just about technology industrialisation. Oh it's certainly all those things. I'm not suggesting that the animal welfare movement itself was a driver in any of this but rather was a reflection of its changing sensibilities and in many cases they welcomed the technological changes if steam engines and electricity could replace the horse. That was good for the horse. As far as the animal welfare movement was concerned. so yes they. They're they're really just part of a much wider chains. It's a way to get at people's sensibilities in this time period. This was a time when people came to care much more about animals but at the same time very technology that you're talking about made like pretty grim for many animals as well. The american city was not a friendly place for animals. Describe what a typical city. And let's just use new york because that is where erg lived. What did near city look like at its peak in terms of the number of animals in the city will think about the horses the motive our for the entire city so everything just about relying on horsepower and that meant enormous traffic jams of carriages and wagons and these these railroads that were really the first mass transportation in the city's fundamental to the growth of cities in this time period but then of course there are huge packs of stray dogs roaming in the alleys idea of animal was really developed during this period animal welfare movement. Lots of people are moving into the city from rural areas. And they're bringing with them their own traditions of keeping a cow in the backyard and chickens and and so forth. Pigs are rooting in in the garbage. There really was not very good sanitation control in most neighbourhoods so scrape pigs were part of the scene so it was a it was an enormously rich complicated and dirty mix of humans and animals in this time period.
"alley" Discussed on Alley Chats
"Me. I, got them right right. Absolutely. Okay good. You'd never know there's a lot of, Kyle's in there. He could've screwed something up and guys I've got you on today you are game designers.

Well my name is Cameron Kyle I'm the older brother of the wrong brothers and wrong brothers gaming. Only by basically you're have two years and I started doing art when I was really young to actually deal with a dyslexia diagnosis when I was in the first grade, they put me in remedial classes but I excelled at art stuff and they found out my grades improved when I started using a computer and this is like way back in the Apple Two e. Mack in a box. days, and that's when I started making digital art because I would be doing homework my wouldn't want to do that. So I pull up like a little MAC paint programs and make maps for DND. Games when I was a kid. So that was the first game art I ever did and we printed out like a dot matrix printer and pulled the little edges off of it is so much fun. Exit. Yes I am calling I am the younger of the wrong brothers and Cameron. Artists side and I am kind of the science side though I do a little bit of art if he does a little bit of science to quite a bit actually which goes into a lot of work and Yeah. So I have a background in college in pollution. Got Into Gaming with Cameron as a kid and I did a lot of weird programming and a lot of like ecological modeling and Zoya have a lot of strong fields about the environment and climate change, and so we brought a lot of that stuff into acts on punk. Ecology of the mega-cities and it really just kind of makes me geek out hard about what kind of urban ecology you've got in twenty, eighty five, and so and playing with dyson. So we do a lot of playing off of each other four game design variety is doing the half that is neat back end of this imaginary Matt Machine that is a tabletop game. And but yeah, so I that's I don't. I don't I wear things but I love math and I love writing and I love game design and I really am grateful to be able to work with my brother in this whole process. To. A So, tell me about the game. You guys have this game excellent punk First of all is the only game that you guys have put out second of all let's talk about the one that you have right now in kickstarter. And described the game let's hear what the game's about. So the acts on punk game it that we're putting out right now is our second edition of acts on punk acts on punk was originally our very first name that Colin propose that we make together as an actual endeavor to put people. We have created four different games in different series of productions at this time that you can see actually on our website that acts on punk is the one that we have in acts active kickstarter at the moment. So the other games that we have to represent is a really cool solar punk gene honk gain called project biracial and that is another game that we're doing together with the sugar gamers and it is definitely more of their era of tail. They started before we were even part of the sugar gamers and we're bringing our own flavor to that giving rules to their game because it was originally a video game and I. It's a tabletop board game that you can find on disagrees website called project.

Twenty five episodes of this? At least a third of them have been Jack Kirby. That is pretty impressive. So. You never had a chance to meet him now. Unfortunately I mean I did go to smaller shows when I was a kid, but. Conventions were slightly different environment. Professionals really didn't travel too much. Go to a lot of shows so.

"Chats. I brought South and today I have a really special guest. I Have Paul good enough. Did I say that right Paul? You did perfect excellent. Paul introduce yourself to the audience. Tell who you are. Tell them what you do shoe. Well actually work across court a number of things so he can get little bit confusing. But I'll try and be as clear as possible so I run a web studio so love work in Games and a web projects outside of that I would use for. Td Film Comics Books. Radio GAGS committee Ready Principally that might might love is comics. That's where my passion is. If people could see the video that I'm looking at right now I know we're doing this audio only but icing quite a collection of comics and toys behind. You wonder why People Paul but you say that you think you see quiet collection this is. This is just the on show stuff. I'll go twenty thousand comex. Oh and many many thousand Toyota. Yeah this is. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I went through a period where we were living in Minneapolis. I was able to be full on in my collecting and I started collecting toys again and it got really out of control then. We opened up a retail store. And I ran out of space and I started having to sell stuff off and now I have a sliver of my toy collection and a sliver of my comic collection yet. It's still a disgusting amount because I love both of them so much and now with owning a podcast network I interview you know creators all the time people are always giving me things like Oh God I mean I love it but oh my God. Where's IT GONNA go yet by? You have go. I've specifically I mean you can see. Oc The listeners. Com are specific. Go over that side of the room one in higher bookshelf for things. I've been given by my friends and colleagues in the industrial projects. People to look how just things the need to Gladdened consider it because I got lots of friends who sent me. That stuff goes told them or read death things they clearly. I think to so so. It's so Paul. One of the ways that we got in contact each other is You worked on core and I know we've talked about core on this show before but you had a segment in there is you. British was something that was a big influence on you when you're younger kind of yes not a certain as a younger kid. Yeah absolutely says kind of Saturday morning. You go down to the local sweetshop news agent and you get the issue and it had like a little moment in. Time is very very Endeavour being my brain with Saturday morning in sweets sure whereas in terms of my I guess my passion for comic collecting in storytelling was will Hersi for two thousand ad. Guy And you know. Marvin superheroes are loved connected storytelling so a reminder career do quite love of comedy in work for young ordinances is in terms of my the things like reading. It tends to be a bit more expensive. I'm with you Over here it was cracked in mad magazine when I was a kid and civic memories of we go to the seven eleven which was our sweetshop. We'd go to seven eleven and I would pick up like my dad would always let me get a couple of comic books. And if there was a new craft renew mad we'd get it and Yeah that was my my thing and as I got older it became more about the comics and then it became more about the indy. Interesting comics. Zine that I got more into so I understand I definitely understand so your segment in core you did. We're not going to dwell on this. I just wanted to touch on it here. you did deadly Headley. Is this a character that you had an affinity for or was it? Hey you gotta signed. It went great. I'm going to do the vampire detective where it was really lucky. Actually so written a few things for show can show acclaimed ideas and just personal reading sense. I've always been a big Fan of detectives in that one way. You can lead audience down a certain path. Pull the rug out from under the so on Shit Winstons. Keith just emailed me and said hey go if you carry to say. We're thinking of deadly Headley. That was an incredible good. Show you that there. Thank you so In obey will. It was peeled log. If I could have chosen. It would be exactly the Ghardaia chasing anyway. Oh that's perfect so yeah I won't go into it but I will put a link in the show so people can check out core because if having kids it's fantastic even without I mean I have kids but even as an adult reading it. I had fun reading these. I was like yeah I I would definitely buy this for for nieces nephews kids and it's really fantastic. It's a lot of fun and it tweaked that mad magazine. Crack magazine thing in. May So very good. So you've got other projects going out. What if you currently got going well? Life is currently very very complex. So I'm working Onto big projects outside of the comments work one of which is called Camerin which is a TV show. That will create an concede by myself and genuine Gary Kurtz Richard Bazeley and Gary was the former produce own star wills and Dot Crystal and stories back in a number of other. Big Seminal. Sifi pieces found Richard Basically Was a one of the directors animation supervises directors at Disney. So the three of us go together and come up with this quite expansive and highly budget TV series. Cu Chi Merrin. The is being Against my my always. My pet project is being saying behind with things push themselves in front of that and what? We've been fortunate enough to to happen now as we Around the Hollywood kinda seem a little bit coming back. Some deals would be made then. Subsequently didn't happen is now we've got a lot of interest again We call cells exact producer. We got some money behind the project which is great and I can't speak too much about the people involved but the the show runners while known for doing similar things and it is. It's she's getting the traction. We've been off to issue a day. Take a bit of a pause She Gary passed away When he paused rich deny have to think very carefully about what we're going to do if it because what turned out to be Kerry's deathbed he will work projects together in. It was the one the only one he mentioned on his deathbed and said to me. Please make sure you do a good job and cameron and now that you know that sat with me to give the guest list is a little bit of a background. The ideas it's is set in a possible future. But it's not a post apocalyptic story because is being done to death is a pre apocalyptic story so if for example you knew the apocalypse was just around the corner. If you knew there was not enough food money will safety go round. Who WOULD YOU BAY in a? Would you be looking to make a small community with people who you can live and work with together which trying to gather everything you could feel south it? What would what would the world look.

"Of this. I'M GONNA buy that sort. He started picking up a lot of other things. You never even intended to A comic book conventions kind of like that. Where if you go to somebody's Online store it. Generally you're GonNa go after particular what you want and not Browse. Maybe as much sure. Sure you mentioned commissions. I know you're incredibly busy. Are you taking commissions at this point now? Right now no. I certainly will make known when I'm going to take more. I'm sitting on a bunch. That are old as it is so Definitely not taking any new ones right now. I just interviewed somebody that said the same thing they said you don't this quarantine is giving me a chance to actually realize while. I'm sitting on old commission either. Even though they're in the middle of fifty projects they went a excuse to. Kinda push aside for the moment for some people like me. Although its effect my personal life more than anything else it just be able to get out and see friends and do other things And a lot of ways of my life is pretty similar. I'm usually at home all the time. And that's where I work so in some ways it hasn't changed greatly So that but for other people it's different you know we have to office or If you're an artist like say who's on the road a lot doing convention things like that. That's they take taking a much bigger hit ya. I interviewed one. Guy For the show When we were talking about this his response was I've been in quarantine for thirteen years. We go so kind of the beast right. Yeah so imagine this is GonNa be a tough question for you because you been around the block but this is your dream. Khan who is it that you are most excited to meet I've been fortunate to meet a lot of people I would think of top my head When I was younger not that I got to know them. But Men Jess Jack Kirby Jack Kirby a few times sometimes I met Joe Cain together if you want it so well if I can meet anybody on Christina we're talking of course about people who are alive or dead so yes yeah well then you know. I mean big influences on the Alex. Toth you know outside of people have said I've already met I mean a number of artists from Europe I would love to need Like moebius that'd been fantastic I don't know mean there's there it it's Now I can't think of a lot of people off top of my head right now but well. Okay Victor Davis Day. Somebody who was thinking about recently South American artist. Jose or tease Yeah there's a lot of great artists who would have been cool to meet Yeah yeah those are all great names. Two Moebius is what I was thinking about earlier today because I was once again when I was reading your bio on one of the sites you said something about how Your work was compared. They thought you looked more like heavy metal than being in DC. And I thought yeah but it was Jim she was Jim. Shooter said that ensures that while that was when I was I was I trying to get a job Right out of school. I mean it's really not it's I you know I it depends I look at you know somebody could take that as a compliment and say hey great. I don't look like I'm from mainstream kind But you know I was just. It was my early days and it was actually a sample story that I drew that was printed at Charlton comics and I was using it as a portfolio carrying that around showing a marvel DC time because how I ended up getting my job with noble comics drawing justice machine but when I showed it to Jim Shooter. He looked at it and you know he he. He said some nice things I guess. And that's what he saying he's just It wasn't a fit for them. So you know I was. I didn't have any superheroes on. It was a story I written on my own the science fiction. And you know it was Had nothing to do with Superhero comics particularly. It mentioned her that you did a book called Van. Helsing versus Jack The ripper. Now yes is that only I could only find a French version of it. It was that ever brought out in America. No there is not an English version. There's the originally was a printed in France in French but there's also a German language version and in Italian one but no English no English. I really fast. I'd love to see your work on. That sounds really really cool do you? Hopefully hopefully that's also a bill. Rhino DOT COM is not have to correct. I think I have enough. They're wondering literally before we jumped on the phone. So I gotta ask him Yes. Do you have a Patriot that you don't okay? She don't do Patriot. What about crowd funding projects? Do you have anything like that? That you're involved in no I I. I probably will do something with this Current Project One way or another sketchbook this that whatever with the flying column but I haven't I haven't done that. Never have done okay. Well I'm putting a buccaneers so when you do or if you do make sure I know and we'll spread the word because I know that people would be interested in supporting your art is. It's like okay. It's just it's just fantastic so we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA deviate again here. Your son has a band. She does so like a lot of people sons. And I I been you. You hadn't been a CDs. Oh you should check this out. It was really cool and then at sea tweet to you said. Hey my son has a new band you gave me okay a new CD and I love it. It's fantastic so his band is lever right. And how long have they been doing their thing together for you know? It's hard for me. Remember exactly but they're like six seven years something like that Go to Lever Band Dot Com and a lot of their music is there and a little bit of their history but It's a there are sort of like I'd say some of the biggest influences the GRUNGE rock but they're they've a lot of influences. I mean there's members in the band love metal others love the Beatles and you know my son is somewhere across between all that stuff and it's very very pool and it's kind of that I want to call. He'll turn it of sound but I don't want to say. Have the stigma of what that could be to the molly they. They are called that they are called that But you know it. Yeah because of their mix of their sound and it's a it's a little bit of POPs a little bit of heartbreak. So yeah it's not necessarily a bad way to Talk about them but they've been doing very well they They play in the city quite a lot Do small tours outside of the Chicago area now and then They won The best rock entertainer at the Chicago Music Awards and in Twenty Eighteen So David they've been doing very well. I think you know. Of course I'm biased. They're great band and I love listening music. So Yeah I. I've been really enjoying it around here. So normally we make sure that are are. The show. Notes are filled up with social media for the person we're talking to but I'm GonNa make sure we put a Lincoln the show notes to his band camp Free and at the end of the show. We're GONNA do something we've never done instead of playing benny in the no goods. Which is what I usually play at the end. The last you're gonNA hear is replace entire track from Lever. So people can get a taste of what they're doing is love it and I would love to see. Exxon gets them awareness here. Well by the way that my son Mike. Reinhold is the Drummer Ryan. You hear the music. He's that guy. What's the drummer like very keeps? The beat. Dad was a drummer.

Grill does a pretty good description of we actually had been Miller on here and we were talking a lot about guerrilla so hopefully people listening are a little bit more familiar with it but your stuff is just so cool and getting the panel with you sitting.

Which is the horror whore and parody apparel based on his Chicago We have wwe superstar killer cross on it and he's going to return for the second one so you got the exclusive for that because we haven't announced it yet. Oh we so We're working on that right now and the third thing Which is really near and dear to my heart which is not saying. The other projects aren't with this last one that I'm talking about is I'm doing commissions And of course like every artists is doing commissions but this is called commissions for a cause and I'm doing a fifty fifty thing on these commissions. I'm not seeing any of the Prophet. I'm not seeing any of the money. However fifty percent of the commission price goes some my local condom bookstore Which is creative comics in Griffith Indiana and the other fifty percent goes to Northwest Indiana cancer? Kids which is a big Organization that I support really believe in In what they're doing with you know unfortunately cancer kids and especially with the pandemic and everything We talk about the elderly and stuff like that but we don't really pay attention to the sick especially the you know like people with cancer and especially the the kids with cancer so trying to help out with that. Doing some sketch covers or forty dollars. do a head sketch on them. So that's the third thing the real thing now like pushing at the moment. Wow so a hundred percent goes to these to charities. Then yeah basically you get you. Get an artwork. You get a one of a kind cover with the comic and you help out a local business and organization a medical organization. So it's like you're basically knocking two birds with one stone and you get something in return for that. His amazing man that is really amazing And I love that. You're helping on a comic store because that is something that we've talked about on this show with other Artists that are like it's it's tough times and we've been kind of brainstorming and as we go along waterways you can help with. This is one that maybe other artists could get involved with this This COMMISSIONS. For our cause so this is really really cool. We'll definitely put links are shown on and I'll definitely promote this on the facebook page. Because this is this is an exceptional use of your talents. I love it. I appreciate thank you. Yeah man so okay. Let's get into some fluff now that you know you've got us all serious. This is your dream. Khan who are you most excited to meet all dream CON Will Eisner that'd be your guy. Yeah we'll I fortunately got to meet Stanley and Frank Miller Who would also sue With all in all honesty I don't think comics would have came into my life My uncle was a big my got me into comic book. He was there when marvel was hitting its peak and he off and then when Frank Miller dropped dark knight and eighty four and I was born in eighty four. He was just like dove back in so I was fortunate to meet the two guys who got my uncle into it. Who brought in my life. But we'll Eisner I would say 'cause he's the one who basically mentor and Frank Miller and might Mongolia are like my my inspiration. Those guys I try to. I WanNa Mimic them so much. Wit like the the use of absolute blacks and mood and stuff like that so yeah he would be the one. He's he's the one that I'm missing your man. It's it's funny because when I think about your work I can totally see how you're inspired by Eisner and by Frank Miller. I totally see it. Thanks yeah I don't. I don't know if that if they would like that I'm sure they would. I'm sure they would your arts fantastic and it's always such a compliment especially if you can see where what you've done has inspired somebody else. It's huge compliment. So so with all these cons canceling. Everything's postponed right now. What do you think is the best way to support creators during this pandemic And it back then. It's kind of weird because we we came so far in technology so this is basically a blessing I would say especially for created Because we have like store envy and different websites and Oetzi and Ebay and all that stuff and a lot of other creators are actually using these outlets now like instagram and facebook and the different social media. I would say To support craters like share the post Buy something off of that because more than likely it's going directly to them if they're not doing you know like Hey. I'm doing for my shop or I'm GonNa do this No Jim Leaves doing what the auction on Ebay. And it's their goals. Wherever you want to go so stuff like that know ed scenes a big thing and I know a lot of people are like. Oh it's a soccer mom type.

"Well I would have to. We'd have to go in a way back machine Take a time machine capsule. Can we can we? Can we do that? Okay I my my one regret You know I I'm a fan boy but I'm not somebody who has to get autographs and there's nothing against that but I just. I admire their work a lot of work but one person that I regret never meeting in my life was Jack Kirby and When I was probably nineteen or twenty He had come to Chicago before he passed away. He passed away a few years. Later and I just that's something that really has always bothered me. I just wanted to shake his hand and tell him and thank him for everything I wasn't I I can. I can honestly tell you. I wasn't Jack Kirby Before Jack. Ruby was cool. Okay I love Jack Kirby when I was seven years old okay and it never stopped. You know. I always loved Jack Kirby it's not. This is not something that. Oh you know Oh. These marvel movies are real popular. Who created this Jet Kirby Own Jack? Kirby's cool no I've loved Jack Kirby for over forty years hipster you were into. Oh that's it that's the best way to put it. Yeah well everybody was else was into and I you know and I love John. Burn George Press. I love Michael. Golden all those guys from the eighties. I Love Them. They're they're the I'd also mind but while everybody was into that. Nobody really like Jack Kirby you know. And here I was going through quarterbacks sins command e and internal and Omega. Can you know all that stuff so my convention would would be to meet you know? Kirby Gil Kane's you know Steve. The coaches passed away A few years ago Giambra SHAMMA Several years ago I got to see John. Ramada talk at San Diego about ten twelve years ago when my kids were born of my friends and I went to San Diego and that was just I was my my buddy. Kevin told me he said you know. You're I don't know if you realize it but you're missing up you're tearing up and I didn't have to meet them really. They have to shake his hand but just to hear him talk. Yeah Russo Humble. He was so humble and you so grateful for the life he had and for the fans in for being in this industry in before it was cool you know to be an industry so I got to hear him talk. Can I got and thank God? He got the daren cooked talk before he passed away. In Cook was on a jet panel with are you Mark Levin. The Kemp says there's this guy market. He was assistant curb years ago but he does. He does he's Kirby panels Mar Every every year and we got to hear Darwin talk and once again. I started cheering up but my buddies cheering up again. I go because Darwin just off. Don was talking about a couple. Someone had asked them. What was your favorite Jack Kirby Comics and he brought up a commanding story that I was familiar with and he started tearing up because it touched him and that same story touched me so there was a connection there. So it's just it's you know These guys aren't guys who put comics in a bag and you know we're we're investing They read them. They meant something to them Science getting off topic here but I also got see cook. It got to see Ramada. You know those old old time guys though Curbs on the top though for sure. Yeah Yeah I get that so do you. I know you. Do you really prolific tons of our when you go there. Do you ever do commissions for people you know Whereas trying to do during the pandemic I I don't mind doing commissions just have such a limited time And I kind of getting a sticky situation where I I hate to say no to somebody you know because if somebody asks you to do commission that means they really like your work and I really really appreciate it when I go to conventions the only time I get to see people who appreciate my work the stuff that I do from a job maybe five or six people see it. The that's it for corporate. You know nobody gets my work so I I'm getting better at saying no to people not because I don't want to but because I don't have the time to do something exactly I'm all or nothing if I if I do a commission for you. I wanted to look as good as something that I have that I'm selling convention because that's why you're buying it so it's funny that you mention it because I'm trying to catch up on some commissions from people that I've said yes to a year or six months ago too but I'm actively telling people. I'm sorry I can't do them because of my day job and then like you said if you if you ever see my booth I got a ton of stuff tons because you've only got now. He's moving into other things. Where honestly here's another That's Kinda run out of time here but that's something I recommend the people to do is if a lot. There's a lot of good out there who don't know what you know. What should I do? Get yourself checklist. I started doing buttons rob. You've seen my button of course and you. You make a checklist. And at some point there's going to be an endpoint. Then I you I was doing prince but I did a checklist and my goal was when you comic Book Convention to me. You WanNA cover every square inch of that table because you're paying a lot of money for that convention so for the past four or five years I've that's all I've been doing is covering the table and as you said like a facebook. You've probably seen some different stuff for me. Because that's done now. My buttons in my prints are done. I might do some more but now you I wanted to comics. You know so I got some got an. I got a nice secret project on the back burner that I'm working on some really tangible that people and that's that's the next thing but if you're trying to three or four things and rob you know in life you can't do the three four or five things half ass and get anything done you know. Make yourself list focus on. This is what I'm going to get done. And if it takes you six months or year or two years at least you got it done right then. The next one went. It's an accomplishment. So that's I mean that's accomplishment is doing is doing storytelling join comics storytelling. That's that's what I'm getting into now. So where's the best place for people to check out your work You could check out my I. I HAVEN'T FC Shop. We check out my work and buy my work. It's If you go to at see my shop is darrel.

"Chance to I have favorites record. But just getting everybody. I've ever wanted on a podcast on this. Show people that I really want you to become aware of Darryl Young Daryl. Welcome to Shea thank you. Thanks for having me. It's a real honor Feel free to have me on your show. I really appreciate it. Thank you anyone who's been to a Chicago Com especially they're GonNa Know Daryl's work you. You should website and look at it as soon as you see it. You will absolutely recognize what Darrell has gone on. And it's just fantastic. Daryl can you? Can you tell people about yourself? Tell them about your background a little bit. Sure I'd be happy to I grew up in the seventies and the eighties. So I have a real affinity and love for comics cartoons and toys of that era seventies and the eighties I went to Columbia College A little later in life probably like mid in my mid twenties went to Columbia College In Chicago after they went right to work at a an animation studio in Chicago called Calabash animation so I was in a traditional animator about nine years We worked on commercials. That was ninety. Percent of our business was General Mills tricks. Lucky charms stuff like that. I was very lucky to learn About hand-drawn animation so that's my passion drawn hand-drawn that Computer Three D. I'm a Tutti Guy After doing that for about nine years live out in the suburbs of Chicago. Suburbs and I was commuting a minimum of two three hours a day and An opportunity arose They're a place was looking for Toy Designers for McDonald's happy meals and A friend of mine Childhood friend his name is Kevin Barber. Did I grew up with? We're still best friends to this day. Thirty years later told me about the job. And he's there There's this place called the marketing store about two miles from your house. Mike what and I had kids coming and I see my commute. Who's not not happy commute? I really liked what I did. I love the people I worked with but I applied for that very fortunate to get in and once again I was very fortunate to learn How TO DO Toy Design and I did that for about a year and a half and an opportunity arose while I was working there to do one better to work from home so I worked for a place called index promotions and been working there for about eleven and a half years Doing the same kind of thing doing We do toys for Burger King We do some cereal toys. We do promotions for sporting events I worked on metlife. Snoopy plush designs for many years did many many of those so So but doing twenty nine for about about thirteen years ago. always My passion though my love like a lot of artists who have who are fortunate to get jobs in airfield you know we. We always have a love for something else. And My love is for going back to the whole you know comics cartoons toys You Know Action Figure Shogun warriors all that. Kinda stuff and I had a couple of friends. twin sisters named Sarah and Catherine Saturn. They worked with the show soon. Because we're we're friends with them. I highly recommend A. Yeah getting them on the show. A great very talented individuals I worked with them and they were starting to do conventions in the Chicago area and They knew I love. I was a geek deep down and I mean a good way and So this a hey you know. Once she started doing conventions. Why don't you just give it a try? Give it a try and I tried it Five years ago I think to to wherever five years ago was I did a C. to easy to And I've been doing it for the past five years so I only do shows in Chicago See to have done wizard world a couple years. I do Show and Share Ville Indiana called Northwest Indiana. Comecon sure It's it's a small show but it's it's a great show. Very friendly people put together. Brian Kelly So I've been kind of doing this for five years On weekends and during time off and My my style is Old School Since this is something that I like to do. I'm not trying to be like the latest greatest. Whoever the hottest is a lot of editors will whoever that they had artists were that trend is. That's what they're looking for. I would imagine but I don't really care about that. So my stuff looks like something probably like out of a seventies or eighties. Comic Book And I didn't know how people were going to react to that Quite frankly you know having worked in the studio Situation where you're working for. You know I I do toys you know like for you know Marvel Disney You know these big corporate people You know Cubs sox blackhawks on stuff like that. You kind of out of touch with what people like so I my recommendation. I honestly for anybody you thinking about getting into doing conventions or or shows or whatever is do you like so I I just you know this is what I like. This is what like to dry. You Know I love beloved Jack Kirby Steve Dicko a love Jonah Selbe Shamma Like the Mike CanNot Shogun Warriors All those sound other barbarian so I started drawing like that and to my surprise my pleasant surprise was got a got a great reaction from it. Like you know Most people in my age group. You know probably guys in their forties or fifties. Wow Wow it just makes me feel so good and then we we talk for about ten fifteen minutes about the toys that we had. And that's and that's a great feeling but something that I wasn't expecting that I really love is Guys and girls in their twenties younger people. Love that retro. Look I love that Retro Style? Oh we got the DOT pattern. Oh you know look just like Jack Kirby and I'm like Oh my God you know. I didn't know that there was an audience out there. The other and you're so it's funny because it is referral but it looks really fresh. Looks really cool. So thank you think you'd be from the very beginning and I do all that Richard stuff I mean you mentioned microns. I love all. That stuff doesn't look. It doesn't look like a rip off distinctly yours and it's really cool. I remember thinking that we found you was Was walking around with my friend. Chris and I think we ended up ogling your booth for about a half hour time for Half Hour C. Two is pretty tough and we. We couldn't leave and we were just like. Oh look at this. It's amazing we loved it so then that's why I say anyone who goes to like wizard world or see tweet in Chicago if they walk round artist Selah. They're going to have walked around by booth and they're going to know exactly. What is I'm talking to? 'cause it's it's really distinct but it's super cool. Thank you I appreciate that. I think you know Any artist who is Has INFLUENCES WHO? Who or who is loving something? They're they're going to bring something else to the table unless they're tracing it in Photoshop which I see a lot of that conventions due to but you gotta bring yourself you gotta you gotTa bring yourself to to the to the work so I appreciate the and it's nice to because that is something I hear from people is that I think maybe that's why the younger people might like. It is that It reminds him something maybe their dad liked. But it's also something because I like animation. Maybe that's what I'm bringing to I. I don't know you know but I I really appreciate feedback you know. And I'm sure that's what they're reacting to. It's it's cool. Thank you so okay. If this was your dream convention who would you be most excited.

Look up animal adventures. You'll see a page that comes up that says like help. Exotic animals affected by COVID. Nineteen animals aren't affected. It's just the place Is Affected by you know canceled towers and you know. Obviously everybody's trying to social distance so they've been hit hard And it's just helping them pay for food and cleaning supplies in. I'm betting for the animals also to help pay for the staff that is kind of essential Animals still need to eat and be cleaned. So it's It's been kinda tough for them but Yeah they're GOFUNDME is generally well enough. Just been trying to promote that as much as possible. 'cause they're awesome and that's my. Wednesday is if you follow any of my social media you'll see my animal admit adventures every Wednesdays where I'm playing with like wallaby using birds and Turkeys and stuff. So so they're gonNA make Netflix documentary. Called the Queen. Said what we're looking for next. I'm afraid of Benford Joe so I have another question. This is a little little off.

The magicians last night. Which is a superfund show In I know that these guys have been to conventions conventions before But I would love to be the people we play like. Margot Elliott Alice invent from the magicians for sure.

Bouche which is like my favorite show especially fielding I would love to beat him and Letterkenny like I would love to meet everybody from letterkenny to Those are like my my two favorite shows right now. I haven't had anybody mentioned those great shows. Everybody should totally watch him with all these cons. That are canceling. You mentioned it. I know it's the the buzz everyone's talking about. It's the reason I started this. What do you think is the best way that people can support other creators during this pandemic? Yeah totally I would say you know if you're a fan of of art in general If you GONNA Comic Conventions you've met some of these the the artists you know. We're all kind of in a tough spot right now so Follow the Artists Online You know share your favorite artists Pieces like share their art on your own social media and you know Kinda help us spread the word about our to maybe people who don't usually go to conventions There's a really cool hashtag right now. Called artists deporting artists in. It's a lot of Lot of us just going through the same thing just putting up everybody's name in in our stories and it kind of this sort of chain and you can click on artists in in find new people that maybe be this convention but you've never met them or haven't seen their name So like even artists are Kinda trying to support each other too but but yeah like checkouts Everyone store like I think mostly everybody has what they would have at a convention anyway online. So you know if you need a wall that's been blank and you've been staring at it for four weeks later in quarantine needs something on it. There is a ton of artists. You would love to help you out so Yeah just just.

Sure Yeah So I'm an artist living in Salem Massachusetts right now Been working in comics for about eight years or so started my whole kind of art career actually working at a Hasbro a sculpted toys for about two years right out of college so got my little taste of corporate life. There in swiftly decided. I'd rather be a freelancer so Luckily kind of yester- start doing conventions. got a lot of really cool people there some of my best friends. I've met conventions in through people admitted conventions and of Meta reps through a Free Comic Book Day at a midnight. Comics in Manchester. New Hampshire is like my mom first. Comic store used to frequent in yet us. Since the I got an Eisner in Ringo nomination editor a resume worked on my little pony for like seven years. A other than that just always doing our show you were nominated for the and for the. That's pretty amazing. Pretty impressive yeah. It was really cool Eisner nominated for in back in two thousand thirteen For my book Acadian Dino through a young press which is a part of Press I believe Children's publication for really young readers. In-in the Ringo was actually last year With my friend Franco He He wrote the go. See Owl which I illustrated In the also got nominated for best cover artist which was kind of mind blowing awesome. Did it was still cool. That's really cool and you did a you did a cover for storm King as well right. I did a short story cover. Oh that's interesting just short story. I've actually this is my second short story with a storm King. I did one last year. That is about like Malians net. Low Crossover but this year super excited decided to try and take a more kind of historic path. I guess in try to do something that looked like like nineteenth century engravings in all about a lighthouse in some spooky goings on so. I'm really really excited for that. One coming out for details for Halloween night issue six which hopefully will be out In October though yeah really cool so I I I was looking at your stuff and you have a lot of stuff in your shop. We'll get some links out there in a minute but you have pins you have some original art your prince. Your stuff is is really cool kind of Gothic and weird about that. Why are you so attracted to that man So yeah I guess he kinda all started. When I was a kid I used to love Scary stories to tell him. The dark was my favorite book. extinct cheese. I think was my other favorite book which was just the weirdest kids book that I could find. I'm just always really liked kind of Morbid macab. Dark stuff but also like kind of trying to find that balance where it's dark and scary but also beautiful like I really love Victorian Morning Jewelry in in pretty much anything about the Victorian Times where they really embrace China. They're they're dark gothic a ways of life. I mean back in the eighteen. Hundreds everybody was dying all the time. So I mean you you kind of have to. I guess find the silver lining in all that but I just always thought it was really cool to kind of find that balance of Lake Spooky Pretty. I guess But I also really like you know like Art Deco Art Nouveau too. So there's kind of like that influencing my style in our doug has a few kind of. I guess if you looked at on Batman the animated series would be the best way like like our deco can be used to create such a really cool. Dark style The that is also just artistic I love it. I love those athletics. I guess I guess what the pins really wanted to kind of create at least with some of them like my own version of like the Victorian Victorian Morning. Kind of Look but also just kind of like little doodles that thought would be Kinda cool to wear like pins have been really cool. We're it's it's wearable art. You know like you can buy a prince. If you have the wall space or lapel you can put a pin on it. Still carry around your favorite artists work on it. So yeah that's a roundabout way to answer that hopefully notes. It's great I I'm a big Fan of. I'm looking at these. The pins that that you have and they really are absolutely wearable art. It's kind of thing I would be completely attracted to if I was walking through artists. Elliott's so who? Now do you ever take commissions and you yeah. I'm actually taking way more now. Because of all the the conventions being canceled I usually take a very limited list at home so that I can work on on deadlines in such I've actually stopped taking so many commissions at shows too so that I can focus on getting some deadlines done but anyway Yes I do take emissions. I take a patriotic patriots commissions. All the time But then I'll open it up to everybody else a little bit more rarely so yeah. If you become a patriarch Patriot. Reminding you get an absolute spot on my list in. I will draw nearly anything that you'd like. So that's really the best way to get commissions from you that not just contacting. Join your fan and become involved with you that way and then you could do commissions through that absolutely yeah totally. It's one of the ways I can give back. I feel Kinda bad because the Patriots are the the Patriots I have Right now. It's been so crazy just trying to make ends meet right now that I haven't been able to keep up as much as I would like with Specials going out but what I do is Show I looks at some stuff on that I will hold back on showing everybody else for at least like a couple of weeks if not like a couple months So like gallery things that I do. I'll show I look for patrons only aura. Yeah mostly mostly Gallery Steph actually showed a piece that I submitted to vogue for a gallery in the back of the magazine. I you patriots a few days ago so I'm going to hold off on showing that to everybody else probably for another month or so. So yeah. So what's what's Your Patriots on address. And we'll put all this in the show notes so people don't have to scramble pullover and write things down. It'll be there. But why don't you give people to listen? Can hear it from its under the art of Sarah Richard. Or if you type in Sarah and I think of them only one on there right now so somebody will pop up with like a lady holding a will Designed in got a little intro video on there that I really need to update because it's probably four years old at this point but yeah one of the things on the list to do so. We'll keep referencing your website. But why don't you give your website information as well sure? Yeah as though it Sarah. Richard Dot Com S. A. R. A. R. I C. H. A. R. D. Siamese Singular Richard without an h on Sarah but Yeah that's got all the links to my social media and A contact page on there as well as some links to some Stefan Society six. I think I've got an illustration unlike shower curtain or something that you can still get on there But yeah just got some some my newest work on their I recently redid my website at the end of last year. So it's Nice and fresh in Nice in Spooky. So there's a lot of references to Salem here. I'm going to ask a question. That's right on your website. I'M GONNA ask it exactly like you have it. Why Salem Oh my gosh it's just like living in exactly what Kinda history alike. It's leg the the dark spooky macab kind of thing that you associate Salem. Even though living here I found that is so blown out of proportion. You're not gonNA find like all the decorations of will you will find them up all year round but not as much as you would think aren't like skeletons hanging in trees year or anything but like the more subdued history is very cool. The which trial stuff is definitely around And actually related to one of the accused witches so my tenth great-grandmother grandmother is Margaret Scott. And her name.

"Yeah the trials and tribulations of us. Whoa is US right so let? Let's talk about a couple things I mean I know you. Have you have a number of things you're doing? You're doing things with DC. You've got this our book of what are the comics. That are that are out right now that you really want people to pick up and I'm sure you're like everything I've ever done. But what would you say like? Hey pick this up a really proud of it. This is my ideal Yeah go SANAL is one of those things that that and yeah you're right. The answer. Is Everything pick up everything? I've ever But THE GO. Al is definitely one of those things. I'm really proud of. It was a true collaboration with Sarah. Richard and her art records just phenomenal. You know she does. He painted fully illustrated pages. When we conceived of the idea. You know it was me basically begging her. Why do you not have a book with als? Because you do these beautiful paintings of and she goes. Well I'm not really a writer you know and I'm like I will write whatever you want type thing. And and uh she's like well. I don't really like doing panels if we're going to do our own book and I'd like to do something a little different. And and she did these full page illustrations and I said I will. I can write that you know so that one. I'm super proud of We we are working on another project together that that I'm not allowed to talk about but it. I'm super excited about with her. Then get to work with her again. so. I can't wait for that to come out because that's that's even more unique In terms of being being from me an artwork from her So that and and Right now on my on my patriot. Have a book called Fox that evil that I'm working on that I'm doing between things so it's not something that I'm I'm putting out on a regular basis is just whenever I get like five pages together putting out Taryn and eventually I'm going to be putting up on comics and eventually if I get enough pages I'll I'll put it out in print but you know mind is kind of always going and was working on something so even when I'm not working on something that I'm getting paid to do from. Dc Year somebody else. My head is full of stories and Ann Arbor on constantly struggling to get to every day. So you're you mentioned your patriotic. Is that specific specifically for ghost on all or is it your patriots on no my Patriot? Yeah Okay so tell people what they do is it just patron dot com slash. Franco slept FRANKEN underscore. I think but you can search it as you know. Franko it'll it'll come up far. Franz Oh so patriots on Dot Franko and it's just Doing a a weekly one page story that I'm writing along with my son but I'm doing the artwork with and I'm trying different things like I'm using photograph backgrounds of manipulating them with some art stuff. So that's been kind of fun to explore with some doing one page up on Patriots. This absolutely free to read. You could go up there once a week and read the new page. The Fox of evil is behind the pay wall. So you know if you WANNA give a couple of bucks as a donation type thing you can. You can read all the all that stuff up there the Fox and evil stuff The there's constantly stuff that's going on. You know that that we're looking to do for comics and and other stuff is just The problem and it's not a problem at all. This is just being really sarcastic in trying to be funny but you know the they keep paying me to do stuff you know so It's it's that's taking away from the crater on stuff that I wanna do but it's not A. It's not a bad problem to have you know right getting paid by DC. To do these other books. And I'm like okay. I'll put this on hold but here an in-between things. I'll get a couple of pages or something so I'm still able to do it very cool. So our during this time. Are you taking commissions at all I have taken a few currently not because I do have a shortlist of commissions to that I I open up every once in a while right. Now it's full and the other thing that a lot of people don't know about me is that I'm a fulltime high school art teacher so that's taking up a good amount of my time now that we're doing this distance learning here in New York It's proving to be a little bit more challenging than actually being in the classroom with the kids so It's been taking up a lot of time Over the last couple of weeks. Yeah Here's a little something people don't know about me. I'm a college professor. I have talked about this before. Yeah yeah so I do understand. Although I was in a unique position win this all hit. I'm teaching online this semester. So literally all the people in the business department were scrambling trying to figure out what to do. And I went okay. I'll send an email so it helps. I do feel your pain so okay Franko now. This is going to be a hard question for you. Well here here's why it's hard you do so many folks. This is your dream convention. Who are you most excited to meet other than me? Okay all right I was gonna I was gonNA say right So it's it's it could be anybody even somebody that doesn't seem to conventions Were living dead to Ooh no. Let's not do that. 'cause then that opens up too many possibilities okay. Let's yeah let's stick to now the Aaron now if it were here now and if it were today I would like to try and meet and not just a photo op. But I'd like to try and sit and talk for at least maybe ten minutes I think would be Steven Spielberg. He's he's one of my idols from from way back. And Luckily at one point in my career got to meet George Lucas and that was an absolute thrill for me So yes Steven. Spielberg would be the other guy my on my bucket list and I would. I would love to meet him and just talk to him About you know the process and work and all that other stuff when it one of the fun things for me was I got to meet Frank Miller at a at a convention at a party and I was able to to kind of alone with him for a few minutes. I got to talk to him. Not so much about comics but about About movies and directing at the things. You've got to do so. That was like a big thrill for me. And like I said talking to George Lucas and the other one would be Spielberg. I think would be the other one. Yeah that sounds awesome in fact I had invited. We used to do a live show at the blue box cafe in Elgin blue box and I actually sent a request to George Lucas people because he was living here in Chicago. I said Hey I think he dig it. We don't have to interview him. I'm just inviting him down and I did get a response. They said he he can't they said He. He wants to walk into a blue box cafe. Doctor who themed cafe watching a podcast about nerd stuff he would be mobbed while yeah and I was like. Oh so close. That would have been great to sit down with him and Spielberg. I think would be definitely on my list. Have you seen the movie five? Twenty five seventy seven. I have not okay. I'M GONNA make a high recommendation to you and everybody listening it's you. I don't know if you can get it online or anywhere as of right now. I don't think it's been released publicly. But they do screenings around the country. The it's it's five. Twenty five seventy seven by Patrick. Read Johnson. It's a movie about the summer. That Star Wars came out. It's his true story and there is a bomb. Sent him out to California because he wanted to be a filmmaker and he ended up meeting George Lucas and seeing this stuff before star wars came out. He comes back and he's telling friends like wait till you see this. And everyone looked at him like he's nuts and but there is a great spielberg part in it he gets Spielberg. And it's it's crazy 'cause he was obsessed with Spielberg yes. Yeah I seen a couple of those different documentary and they were very much in that group of they would go to different sets like George. Lucas would come to the set of One of his movies and he would go and see the star wars stuff and and they would go to Francis Ford Coppola set about when he was doing something so it was very much you know. They were very in tune with each other so it. It's kind of cool to see that process and I don't think that really exists much anymore in Hollywood the time before that the the golden era of Hollywood. And then there's this this section in the middle with those guys Where they would be all kind of like you know You know palling around. And they all came together type thing and I don't really think that exists much more any anymore. I think the closest you have might be Tarantino. Robert Rodriguez right. They seem to be pretty tight for a while and they seem to be involved into those projects a lot but I agree with you so okay. We're going to shift gears. Because that was I went off on a tangent there. We mentioned different ways to support comic shops. What do you think all these kinds canceling? What what would you say is the best way to support creators? During this pandemic He s parting. Creators is is Is An easy thing to do. You know they're they're Oliver Social Media. If you like them you can follow them. If you don't know how to follow them you can find out easily enough Find out if they have a commission list Gracious enough to ask me about mining. I do have one. But it's it's full. I take a limited amount because of all the other work that I'm doing but Yeah find out if they have a commission lists find out if You know you can get a piece from them or or by some of their original artwork from from books and stuff like that You know you tend to get online and you see these prices that Jim Lee guests for his pieces. And you're like oh I'm never gonNA be able to afford that but there's other artists out there that that you know are pretty reasonable and you can search him out and helped them out 'cause Unfortunately for for a lot of artists conventions are a big part of their their salary and Not having them now. It looks like you know maybe through September and beyond is is going to be real big hit for the industry although all around is starting to show trying to draw people to these creators to find ways to support them however we can so great answer man. So how do people get.

"You know that's way on the back burner sure. Where can people find your work? Where can they find the things that you have published? Where do you have just like? A central website is on. Dvr Weird this. Well another thing that I've done for a long since nineteen ninety-two In Nineteen ninety-two. I started a distribution company for small press. Comics called spitting half and that was kind of what I called my little self publishing efforts and stuff like that. I had a little record label and I helped distribute I focus on mostly like art and literary comics definitely small press self published things And to a certain extent international comics. I try to bring over a better in translation so You know at this point on the website under half website. I've got maybe six hundred or so books online from all over the world and So that's kind of what I do in my day job to and it's also a labor of love. It's just I love getting good comics into people's hands and hard to find comics and kind of more obscure things that People don't really have much access to so all that stuff can be found and a half dot com including all my own work and stuff like that. It's all in one. Spot there spitting a half now. Do you have a patriotic or anything ways? People can support you. Yes so a couple years back. I started a Patriot on and it was. I mean it's completely changed my life I it's kinda tripled my income. So you know I was. I was one of those poor cartoonists I was able to keep doing my work and keep focusing on my work but it definitely took a lot of sacrifice in terms of financial stability and stuff like that but you know I was fine with that My most important thing was just to be able to do what I WANNA do. Without having to compromise it or anything so a couple of years back I started a Pai Chan. And that's been a game changer. For me so I suppose paycheck dot com slash John Porcelain. But I think if you just search me on patriots it should pop up for that. There's different levels. I do A lot of online stuff. That's exclusive to pay people and then there's also a level where you get that kind of stuff and you also get physical stuff mailed in the mail when I when I put out. A new issue came cat. Or a little zine or you know I try to come up with little Physical things to send the people stickers patches and scenes and you know different odds and ends to to put in the mail the people at that level too. So it's been fun it's been just I mean it's helped me financially but in another way it's it's in a different way of really connecting with my audience and my readers and stuff so it been pretty fun so never take commissions online is people. I'm not sure how that works for you. I know a lot of artists and cartoonists do commissions to make a little extra. You ever do that. Is that part of your Patriot on sure. It sounds something that I really pursue a whole lot but You know people will approach me about it. And so I I always am happy to do. Drawings for people I do a lot of like portraits family portraits and pet portrait's especially and turns out that I do a lot of like wedding invitations. And things like that. But now the one thing that's weird for for me that's different than a lot of cartoonists as I don't actually saw my original artwork like original page king cat or something. I don't sell those but I so as an alternative I do people will if you have a favorite page or something like that. I'll actually re dry and it's actually usually comes out a little bit nicer because I use really nice paper to do the commissions on and stuff whereas camp pages could be drawn on the back of an envelope or something you know and so I'll do that for people You know like I said. It's I don't really advertise it too much but if people are interested. I'm fully open to doing that stuff. And I I try to keep it definitely very affordable so I my whole thing about making comics versus. Making fine are is that. I liked the accessibility of it and I liked the affordability of it and Kind of And anybody who wants my art can get it in in for five bucks for the or whatever and So even with the original art work that I do. For people commissioned artwork. You know I try to keep it pretty reasonable. I think it commissions are just a good way to kind of stretch people right now while we have this pandemic and it's hard for people to like get some of that physical stuff or get into stores. So that's why I was asking. I thought you know if you haven't great and it sounds like that is an option what you think with all these cons canceled postponing. What do you think is the best way that people can support creators right now? Well I mean buying stuff from them. You know online whether it's supporting their John or go into their Web store and picking up a few things and having it sent to you certainly commissions would be great. You know that that's a great way of getting money in people's pockets. I I think you know part of the whole thing. That's been interesting to me as a self publisher doing it. This long is that I have a lot of great stuff the Internet but it certainly has made it easy to get in touch with people as made it easy to send just even an an email saying. Hey Man I've been reading your work for twenty years and I just wanted to say thank you for what you do. I mean it sounds Corny. But that kind of stuff mean so much especially cartoonists at such a Isolated kind of sit at home at a desk and Hash things out by yourself. Kind of art form that To get those little bits of encouragement and support from people means means a lot to cartoonist. So you know. I wasn't sure how things they go with. Cove it when with my distribution services and things like that and obviously orders for stores and stuff have dropped off a lot. But I'm staying very busy with people who are looking to get cool comics in the mail and you know I the only real difference for me as I ship things once a week now instead of basically daily under. Yeah well I'm just trying to minimize everybody's contact with the outside world a little bit. So I I go on Friday afternoons and ship off fat weeks orders and but you know so far knock on wood. It's been Still pretty consistent you know ordering things online dropping. People Align Order Commission. It's it's so easy to get in touch with your favorite artists and and connect with them at this point that You know in the best of times people appreciate it and and nowadays it's it means even even a little more so if this dream con okay who would you be most excited to meet in the whole world yet alive or dead. It's it's your uterus. However you want slice up it's a dream convention Jesus God I don't know Jesus how about that. I'd like to sit down. Sit Down dinner with Jesus. Didn't pick his brain about life things to say. Bet Okay. That's that's the first I've had I think sitting down and getting Some answer straight from the Horse's mouth straight straight from the person who probably most impacted Western civilization would help answer a lot of questions about the direction of our society. Maybe I think I think it would be helpful. Could as I really WANNA dance. Jesus shows up at. That would be interesting. Yeah if you're talking about cartoonist. God I kick myself a little bit that I never met Jack Kirby because he ended up being such an inspiration to me. Obviously my comics are nothing like Jack. Kirby's comics but I love so much the passion of what he does and the idiosyncrasies of what he did with comics and you know I hear stories from people who met him at cons in the early nineties or late eighties and you know I loved his comics at the time. I just didn't really realize who he was. Because I I used to collect all the his Monster Comics in the quarter. Been you know the seventies reprints monsters. Well they reprinted all those Atlas Age Chicago and I just I mean I know. They're still because day. Those are my favorite comics. And the whole world was Jack Kirby Monster Comics so like any inkling Jack Kirby was but I wasn't never I wasn't really into superheroes or or any of that kind of stuff at that time so I would have. I wish I had the foresight to driven out to California sometime and knocked on the door. 'cause I I would have liked to have met him. Had to good answers. And nobody said Kirby yet either but I would have thought he would have shown. Oh Yeah so best way for people to get in touch with you is through your website. Is that what you're saying? Yeah if you go to spend a half dot com. I mean I'm on a I'm not all of it because it's so much now but I'm on facebook on twitter. I must on Tumbler which you know I I refuse to give up. Hope on Tumbler I'm on instagram. I have King Cat King. Dash Cat dot is my kind of basic king cat site but the main you know ordering site and stuff is spitting half dot com. All of that stuff has my contact information on it and so I'm pretty easy to get ahold of crates and I will put all of that in the show notes. People can get in touch with. You can order stuff and I really really encourage people to do this. I I can't tell you what a big Fan I am. And how long? I've been a fan Not just manual. You Been Zine Guy Like I love scenes to and yours always always hippie the right way so thank you John. If you've got so if you've got those early he's those early can cat that's a that's a pretty Tight community because Like the first dozen or so issues I I I made eighteen copies of each one or you know and I've found that my thinking I think. Yeah my thinking was. I had five or six friends that I give them to. I put three copies of it. You know at the turn table or I think Graham crackers that was later though but those first one and I you know I sold them through. Factsheet five actually five with list them so. I hope that I get a couple of orders. And maybe it'll take a six months or so to sell out of my print run of eighteen copies and then. I do that in the next issue so there were very very few of those early King. Cats made you know so there's not too many of them out there. I'm a An elite club. Then because I do there you go hold onto those things. That's right that's right. Well John Thank you so much for being on and I'll get this out in. I hope the world finds you. Yeah thank you very much. I really appreciate it. You can find allie chance on facebook by searching for ask Allie chats. You can also visit us at our webpage S.

Actually go to bulky studios DOT COM and up there on our website. You can go to our facebook. You can go to all those places. I just named the alternate for Social Media outlets that we have you can like the pieces you can share them kind of the biggest thing right now is. He's really just trying to get out there but I can't do it without the help of you guys out there Was I love doing his interviews. Because no you. You're helping me a lot as well and very grateful that we're doing this interview and I can actually talk about what I have coming up what I'm doing and where people can go. News shared like studio stuff. That actually is the next question. What have you got coming up? What of the projects you've got that you're involved in right now that you want to let people know about he and absolutely odd the biggest one as of right now is the one shot. Halloween comic coming out Through storm kids coming out in October Really looking forward to that. So it's my own characters our own story that we're putting into this comic book our Very First Comic Book which is being published again by storm. King Comics Coming out in October. That's the big one Have Weekly Comic Strips which is always on instagram every Sunday? So that's instagram dot com slash bulky studios. Usually I post them in the morning. The anywhere between nine and ten is right trying to eight. Ten is when I tried to keep a post as other kind of you know people can go. Oh yeah there's comicstrip today right right but there's that I'm talking with animator right out actually work on a animation also for October something completely different than What's in the comic book? This is something I've been trying to get done for about three years now and other animators. I've I've worked with. They just gave up. And don't think it's because it's not because it's too difficult but it's three era so I think that might be the trial okay. I might have to shrink it down just a little bit. Maybe to but I can't I can't go into less than two does has some dancing and stuff in it and it's all about skeletons. So it's it's it's a it's a very fun project. And of course the kids folks There's a few other projects that I have in the pipeline. But I gotTA start cleaning up some of this stuff. I sure her while horse way too much for one person. It's so with with all these kinds cancelling or postponing. What do you think is the best way for people to support a creator? Hugh if they do like like what me for instance you know. I don't have a Patriot so go on. Facebook go on instagram. Go on twitter or any of the social networking sites that you know that. I am on sharing liking definitely sharing just letting people know. Hey check out this guy stuff. You know I've had some people have twitter. I've never really posted stuff on twitter but I've got people who are now retweeting a lot of the things that are posted there. That's a big thing you know. It's not all about the money all the time I mean yes makes the world go round but it's not all just about the bunch it's about getting the word out there. Sure and I know that a lot of people I've seen on their people are getting laid off work. They don't have the money right now. Money is very tight even stimulus and stuff like that will. It's going to be coming out any people that's gotta go for food. You know that that whole thing toilet paper could find it It's got a goal for other things and so that's why I always say sharing is caring and other sounds raise. Say kind of weird. But it's true. I mean that means more than just getting the Almighty dollar makes sense. It makes sense. Well I tell you what Jeff. This was a lot of fun to talk to you. I really look forward to the projects you have coming up. You've given your social media.
