David S. Reynolds on Abraham Lincoln

"Our guest. Today is dr david. S reynolds historian who has written extensively on the civil war era. He's won numerous awards including the bancroft prize. And the ambassador book award just to name a few. And he is the author of the book. Abe abraham lincoln in his times professor reynolds. Thank you for being on our show. Great to be here richard. Thank you great. So much is made about president. Lincoln's lack of experience and his many supposed- professional failures prior to winning the presidency. But you seem to push back against this narrative. So what's the real story here. yeah One of the best books on him david. Donald to lincoln one of the better known books actually says very frankly that no president has ever entered the highest office being the least prepare less prepared than than lincoln that is the least prepared ball and on the surface kind of looks that way because he had less than one year of education just primary school education and Thou that was it and He didn't go through any formal formal of self education. Either but what i found is that he had something far more important. A insatiably curious. If he were on the law circuit around illinois he would go to a farmer and say. How does that machine work. And what brand of cow is that and and the pig over there. What can you describe that to me. Very very curious about the world around him And also he loved to read poetry in particular newspaper small so poetry and poetry kind of organized his thoughts and he memorized shakespeare by the page. She didn't do it to impress people but Suddenly suddenly would come out with a shakespearean soliloquy though is on his hard disk his brain and Or burns poem or something like that. So he was a really exposed to different levels of culture so much so that his contemporary emerson said There's one hero who stands out from the rest as somebody who bridges the entire range of experience from the very highest shakespeare of the opera. And all of that to the lowest. He like body humor and grotesque Frontier humor and emerson said he went down as far so the the very dogs believed in him so In a way who's very very open to experience and is that lincoln that i'm really interested in the songs he loved the poems he loved and what really made him a what what was going on inside of him right and you talk about. Lincoln's ran as an era of sensationalism. Violence susannah humor surreal the surreal in the bizarre which i think for anyone that follows politics now is a bit comforting to know that it's it's been like this for a while. So can you expand on just what you meant by that. Well i think there's been interesting sensationalism for a long time in many cultures but the difference was that because of changes in print printing techniques and also distribution techniques. Suddenly this was available to the masses and so the newspapers they used to be used to six hundred suddenly were once the penny papers and they were filled with sensational stories about murders and suicides and oh adultery and all all all this stuff and so yeah. I mean Linking grew up in this kind of culture. Also in popular humor lincoln said it was characterized by grotesque nece and it was a very violent kind of humor of gouging and and scrapping and scraping and a often feature these kind of frontier types. That were just wild men and people get a lotta thrills out of these kind of very very wild escapades in the crockett manuscripts the davy crockett manuscripts almond accents. Helper and p.t barnum. Who was a sensation. He was founded show business and wasn't in the circus business back then but he was in the museum business and he put on sensational displays like a fiji mermaid. Who is this beautiful blonde. Half naked woman had presented that way in in the posters. But actually it was just a a monkey's torso tied to a salmon's tail assistant in some water. And anyway the biggest. The smallest the fattest put things on display so in a way Lincoln had to serve accommodate culture as well because he was sold as as abe. That's book is called the kind of rough frontiers men with his sleeves rolled up and he's wielding an axe in these splitting the rails and by the time that It was advertised that way. It had been many years since. He's splitting rails because he was a respectable lawyer by the time war. Good suits and all of that and it was making a good income but he allowed himself to be sold as a even though he hated the name but he said without names like old. Abe uncle abe Honesty i wouldn't have been elected. I would not have been elected. So he was sort of put on display almost in a barnum barnum like way in eighteen sixty.

Growing Weed in the Garden with Johanna Silver

"Joanna. Silver is a gardener. Writer and editor formerly the Gordon Editor at Sunset magazine. She is a regular contributor to Martha Stewart Living. Better homes and gardens and the San Francisco Chronicle the author of the old dry garden on the garden and legacy of famed California plants woman. Ruth Bancroft this week. Joanna joins us to talk about her newest book growing weed in the garden. A no fuss seed to stash guide to outdoor cannabis cultivation out now from Abrahams press cannabis in California has been legal for medical use since nineteen ninety-six and in November of Two Thousand Sixteen California. Voters approved the adults use of Marijuana Act to legalize the recreational use of cannabis the use sale and possession of cannabis over a certain level of THC remains illegal under federal US law that said according to a recent report on NPR thirty three US states currently allow for some form of sale and consumption of marijuana and of those more than twenty states have designated the cannabis industry as essential during the corona virus outbreak from her shelter in place with her young family in Berkeley California. Joanna joins us today to shine a brighter light on the often confusing. Growing we'd as Gardiner's welcome Joanna. Thank you so nice to be here back with you. The last time we spoke we were speaking primarily about your first book the Bold Dry Garden and this new book is something of a An adventurous kind of Tangent. Or like offshoot from your original. Garden writing work. I want to start though with your current relationship to plants and the garden world both personal and Professional Joanna. What do you do everyday tell listeners? More about who you are and what you're up to. It is so nice to be talking to you again even just anticipating the conversation that I would be having with. You got me just like thinking about life and anyway thank you. Just thank you for having me. Thank you for making all the room to talk to people about about exactly this. Their relationship to plants I am home now as you know. All non-essential workers are and I am doing the very essential work of raising my son who turns three in July and In a non pandemic situation spends most of his day in a share So we gardened some But it was more like gardening light and now that we're home together. I am gardening heavy and doing with him I salt. I was already going to have a vegetable garden this year. I was already scaling back on the. We'd I'm only really growing at this year to continue to write about it It's a it's a really fun plant to grow et Cetera et CETERA. But I really have this urge to grow fruits and vegetables with my son and so even though that was already going to happen I dug up to maybe like eight by eight feet by thirty inch. Beds right in the middle of our meadow grass to with him to create more space. So as I talked to you he's asleep. There's dirt all over my hands and I'm feeling really really connected to the hard honest Labor of garden creation and it feels so good so good and you. You touched on a couple of things already right there. One being the fact that many of us are home as quote unquote non essential and yet in this moment so many people have turned back to activities and connections that are so essential like our own attachment and connection to how you survive how we make our out. We make our lives not just livings. And that is in raising our families and cultivating art pieces of land. So okay I'M GONNA I'M GONNA have a go back just a little bit before we dig into the structure of the book in in some of these levels on which you got intrigued. Many listeners will remember the bull dry garden. But just for those who. Don't give us a little background on you. Where where were the people? And the places and the plants that grew into a person who would wanna be a person that wrote about gardens and gardening with her son as a matter of both principle and practicality so I got my start farming in college after traveling so really interested in food and food security. I had a very meandering path and ended up in the editorial Test Garden at Sunset Magazine. Back in the Menlo Park days through to the Oakland and New Test Garden in Sonoma's county days and went from outdoors at the magazine to indoors. Writing and editing and timber press reached out to me looking for a bay area writer to write this book idea that they had about Ruth Bancroft S- Garden cactus in dry garden in Walnut Creek California and I pitched myself because I was young and ambitious and so I wrote a book about. Ruth's life and Roots Gardens. She just passed away actually also twenty early twenty eighteen late twenty seventeen at the age of one hundred nine And so just a couple of years before that. I wrote this book about her life and her garden. I think the fun one of the fun things for me as a gardener and garden communicator journalist person is seeing so many come back to gardening and recognize it as this essential thing that it is and that you and I and kind of die. Hard gardeners have has always known. And we've been advocating for now. You also indicated in this first question this sort of interesting Almost conflicted feeling about growing weed. And I think it's a perfect segue into the conversation for us on this on this program. People have been telling me that I should do an episode on weed for the longest time. Because as you note in your introduction to the book it's one of the largest crops in California and many many people are interested in it and it has this deep historical ritualistic medicinal blige intimate like wait and Gravitas to it but that is so blurred by the the other baggage that comes with it that I have stayed away from it until now because I was so compelled by yearbook and the way that you handled that year and maybe it was a little bit more of researching documenting and writing about this project. You took on as a as an assignment not necessarily a personal passion but an assignment and So we really kind of want to get into that the I just WanNa say by the way that your documentation of life at home with your To almost three-year-old Garden intern as you call him on. Instagram has been in total pleasure to watch in. Its true sort of honesty. Raw dirty fingered honesty. Thank you. It's been. It's been a massive creative outlet for me. Yeah Yeah Okay so. Tell us about this book. Why this book how did it happen? What made you decide to take on writing a book about growing weed in twenty seventeen? I had a baby and I was headed back to work You know six ish months later back to Sunset Magazine Garden editor where I thought I'd have the job for the rest of my life Kathy Brazil before me held the position for forty years and I was all set to go back. It was the week before. Maternity leave was over and the place was bought by private equity in lost my job I felt desperate to keep writing and working and reached out to everyone. I've ever written for asking for assignments Just to keep going to feel some forward momentum and a former editor in chief of the magazine. Kitty Morgan Worked at the Chronicle San Francisco Chronicle and I reached out to her until I wanted to write for her you know. The chronicle does garden design edible gardening whatever and She said you have a new baby. I bet you don't have time to do lunch But I may be called her bluff and I was like I totally have time to do lunch and met her for lunch and she. It was right before recreational use went legal and including recreational growing in California. And she was like I have this whole other idea for you. I want you to grow wheat in your backyard and documented as a gardener. I think at that time everyone like it was coming but it still felt even more taboo than it does now. We were all sort of figuring out how to talk about how he felt about cannabis being something that we can talk about and And so I told her I didn't know where to get seeds. And she said emphatically. That's your opening line and it was supposed to be for this part the separate website run by the Co Chronicle called Green State Which has since been folded into the magazine or into the newspaper and it actually got got lost its funding for a while but kitty was so dedicated to me that they ran the series in the food and wine section on Sundays and I worked through this ten part series for them on growing lead in my backyard as a gardener starting from knowing nothing to having a big crash course in the plant yet everything about the naming and needing to forge new contacts. I had I was starting from zero other than my years of experience being garden writer And a gardener no for sunset.

March Madness: The Sandpaper Scandal

"March twenty fourth. Two thousand eighteen is now one of the most infamous days in the history of Cricket. But it wasn't because of an incredible player controversial officiating it's because somebody committed a be most brazen acts of cheating the sport had ever seen and it was all caught on camera. Welcome to sports criminals of our cast. Original this is the twenty ninth episode in our March Madness. Special this month were counting down the top thirty one sports scandals from nineteen ninety. Two Thousand Twenty. I'm Carter Roy and I'm Tim Johnson and today's episode. We're going back to two thousand eighteen and a scandal known as sandpaper gate in rocked. The cricket world in shock fans and pundits alike when you see images of white-clad gentlemen playing cricket. It's hard to imagine. Any of them are capable of cheating. The sport is so proper that some games even feature a mandated. Lunch break in a twenty minute pause for afternoon tea but it was during one of these breaks that Australian cricketeres hatched one of the most notorious scandals in the sport's history March twenty four. Th Two thousand eighteen was the third day of a four match series between Australia and South Africa. The teams were nodded at one. A piece with South Africa was starting to pull away if the Australians did mount a comeback. They were in serious trouble desperate to gain edge on their rivals. Some of Australia's senior players came up with a plan team. Captain Steve Smith notice that the Africans were struggling with balls thrown with reverse swing akin to a knuckleball pitcher in baseball to give the ball movement Smith and Group of players decided to rough it up a bit on his way. Back out to the green fielder. Cameron bancroft grabbed piece of sticky tape from an equipment bag and stuffed it in his pocket when no one was looking. He grabs some dirt and stuck it on the tape creating sort of homemade sandpaper the next time. He got the ball. He used the tape to scuff it. he wasn't as sneaky as he thought. Tv cameras captured the whole thing and casted on the jumbotron for all to see. Bancroft tried to hide the evidence by quickly stuffing the tape down the front of his pants with the cameras. Already trained on him. It was too late. They replayed the close up of him hiding it in his pants then they replayed it again and again in slow motion. He had been caught red handed. Once play concluded for the day Smith in Bancroft confessed to everything as punishment Smith and vice captain. David Warner were suspended. For twelve months Bancroft was banned for nine though many made light of scandal known as Sandpaper Gate. It left a dark stain on the Australian cricket community. It created such a national controversy that Prime Minister Malcolm. Turnbull even weighed in. He declared to the whole nation. Who HOLDS THOSE? Who wear the baggy green up on a pedestal. This is shocking disappointment. Since then Steve Smith and the other disgraced cricketeres have served their sentences and return to the field. It's safe to say the fans and TV cameras will forever keep a close eye on.

I can imagine that yeah although I took my wife but it's the couple I didn't that hurt what is done for our podcast so thank you listeners for hanging with us this summer because we've had to do a podcast separately. Tom Recorded somebody himself in Italy and other places. I've done some myself this summer and the first time back and this is a great well back Tony Johnny so on our end back. This is going to be a fun one because we have two guests and but on our end it's Tony Nice sitting next to each other. I am down here for for Mike box expo and we're both going to have tables there and we'll talk more about that probably in the next couple podcasts but wanted at least just say that's why not in California California right now to record together by the time this airs light box will be over and thank you bobby chew and everybody that organized that it was great time unsure. We had a great time. Hopefully really we survived. We're just assuming it was a blast. I look talking about the past like we're in the future. Yeah we're talking about back to the future at light box. It was great so thanks thanks for having US but tonight. We have a very special podcast. This is something that we've been talking about doing for some time and I think we should just let me lead. Get in on this because you keep getting this wrong tonight today. Actually the day this is posting this should be Friday the thirteenth we are now how had this is the fortieth anniversary of when the Don blue walkout happened. Rome Walt Disney feature animation back and I think it was seventy nine nine. I might get corrected not good seventy nine thousand nine hundred seventy nine back before most of our listeners were born. This was a historic event Tony. This was the moment where a good chunk of the Disney studio left all at once to go start another studio to basically compete with Disney but not for the reasons. Everybody's thinking right now. This was not really like I hate Disney kind of a walkout. There are not enough for that kind of thing wasn't like a union walkout out or anything like that. There's a lot of greats. There's been stories over the years and I think that's why we wanted to do. This time is that it feels like it's been time forty years definitely early enough time has gone under the bridge here. It's time to really talk about the truth and the stories about what happened what was going on and for all of our younger students out there. Eh that take our classes. Tom And I teach at the university level. I think they want to know because it was such an impactful time in the animation industry it really we set the animation industry in a new direction so tonight we have very special thanks to Gary Goldman the producer over at Don Blue Animation and John Pomeroy that third partner unfortunately we don't have done blew himself he could make it tonight but these are the two of the three partners and the main people that walked out that one day forty years ago guys anything. You need to correct on downright good to me where we started. Ah Up when we started I was annemie right. Gary started out as an animator Walt Disney. She's definitely all right correct that and actually when you started the Dumbo studios you were animated on some of the first features and then you've got ended up producing Gary Yeah well it was a we had a business partner that we we've pulled the but nine and I had to take over that part of the process. You kicked out. Wow sounds like oh yes well. This means a lot to ask and we kind of rambled through that a little bit but you know the animation history was changed range that day and it really was it wasn't just for Disney. Studios wasn't just for Jon Blum Studios but animation history general ripple effects that happen all across the board but what is this anniversary the both you guys me. Let's start there. You know what for me guys. It's like you look at The industry worldwide lied and it doesn't resemble anything that Gary and I are dawn saw back in nineteen seventy nine. It was small much smaller dangerously small competition petition breeds excellence and that's what seems to be lacking back in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. There were no other competitors really outside of maybe Hanna Barbera with the negation will feature but we were seriously I mean we had law long talks out in the parking lot. Gary remember talking about are we facing the extinction extinction extinction of our art form and something needs to be done to ensure that this art form would have longevity and legacy to it and you know walking out was not our first option when we first started working in. Don's garage I mean we palled together and we wanted to get the the knowledge that the nine old men are mentors had at their fingertips that was slow in coming to US sure that we're being taught how the you know the basic principles of animation nation how to act with a pencil how to put it on the screen and how to create personality but we didn't know anything about sound recordings. We didn't know anything about contracts with musicians. We didn't didn't know anything about how to edit a film or how to actually put together a film. We didn't know the A to Z a filmmaking for feature animation and we needed to find out because because they were training us to fill their shoes and we needed to have that information at our fingertips in order to accommodate that what about you. What's your yeah. Ah I have great memories of being able to even be at Disney. You know I was one. I think I was number. Fifteen fifteen of the people that were brought in we saw a lot of people you know flare out after the first month you know we always everybody always got two months and going in there. I was in a total panic. I knew nothing about animation. I hadn't seen an animated animated movie. Since I was eleven years old. When I got out of the of high school I went into the air force and I was in air force for four and a half years and when I finally got back home in northern California I went to Cabrillo College and eventually Shauwie between getting a associate degree I went to Hawaii to do. I wanted to get into to what's the one in Los Angeles biggest wanted us to be in a Shard Shenar. Yes unaltered I I my teacher in high school wanted to give me a scholarship there and I I'm seventeen. I'll blow it. You know I'm going to go grow up a a little bit and see the world and when I came back and I finished I sent my portfolio as the chart and they said we love your portfolio but we're not taking on any any new students. We're going to be moving to Valencia and it's going to be called California Institute of the arts when when I went to Hawaii all my professors had been to Shenar. I was kidding. I was getting the same input as they were getting. If I had gone onto Shinohara anyway I got so panicky about making sure that I got through my first and second month and I told my wife I said I've got a listen. You're going to have to watch over our son who is only two and a half years sold that time as KIP and I said I'm going to go to work early and I'm GonNa come home late. I'll be going in at five thirty quarters six and I'll I'll try to be home by seven thirty eight but I have to work harder here to get really good at this and this happened. When I heard Don Duck Wall tell me in his office. He says now it could take ten years to become a master animator and then that was part of the panic. You know that you're you're hoping you're going to be at that point and the other. The other thing was if you don't get good fast. You'RE GONNA you're you're making no money not real money and I had I had been fortunate enough to during my time at university. I was a bartender and I was making three hundred three hundred fifty dollars a week. This was in you know it was yes and then when I landed them him to Disney don duck while told me says well your sour is going to be a hundred and twenty seven dollars a week after tax probably ninety two dollars a week and our and I knew at least half of the people we had an apartment in were on on the Dole they were making more money than I was and when I was working at Disney and so anyway it all started coming together you know yeah and I met Don on loose in the first three or four days. You've mentioned that Gary if you mentioned Don Buckwald and for those that don't know he was he was kind of legendary as being the guy that trained all the out the inbetween cleanup artists right no no he was production manager. He was the executive production. Ha it cody. Hanson and nobody like that ever taught the other anime. The one I think he's referring to gary is the legendary Johnny Bonds Johnny. Johnny Johnny Bond was he taught Fred more he taught any animator award Kimble all the nine old men had to get through training they usually encountered johnny bond who trained them how to inbetween and he confessed you know he confessed candidates and I you know what I never passed on talented these guys. They were their own greatness. I taught him how to flip the pages and draw Mickey Mouse. Let's back up and to start from the beginning. Ah what was your entry level position to provoke you guys in between her between her and mine was trainee. I mean the timing was kind of strange on my part with Gary he came in his inbetween her and then he advanced onto being assistant to Frank Thomas and your sister to him for how many for how long about a year hours twenty two months. That's a long time I mean. That's a lot of time to chuck in with great. I I take it back. I wasn't in with him for twenty. Two months. I it was ten months and then when the Pooh tigger to came up they they they put us in as animators but didn't tell us tell us as animated Ijaw Trainee Program in February of Seventy three and at that time Carey had been working working on doing Franks scenes on Robin Hood Right and by the time I came in they were on like the last six months of production for Robin Hood so with me I was was in training for about four to five months and all of a sudden I rolled off of trainee program and got directly into animation which was unheard of I mean it was it was just it's amazing. It was a blessing that means you're really good. Thank you guys you know what actually I think. The the trainee program got even more serious in between seventy three and seventy four because they realize you know as they were retiring or leaving the industry. They needed to replace their information. They needed to replicate what they knew into the young minds of trainee animators quickly and so I think the tempo of training them went up quite a bit Eric. Larsen was Eric Larsen training the animators at that time. He's a wonderful yeah he was he was the man to do that. I mean there was no one is patient and kind and as giving as Eric Larsen. He was our father to us all while we were in the training program so let's. Oh sorry go ahead. 'CAUSE YOU'RE GONNA say before. I moved up the ladder from being an assistant. You know I I had submitted twenty two animation tests so once a month even after the thing every month I would actually deliver that I would go oh to work at a even when I was working as an in-between it because I had the two months as well under Eric and then I would take my scenes that I was doing each month up to Eric and I was I was always downstairs you and and who worked with you and you guys did the prince in in from.

"Of course, they get the nice willing. And so I go to these dinners and kind of meet their the parents they come to and stuff. And so it's kind of a nice little, but I tend to take a bus there with other professors as this where I'm headed. I happen to set on the way back from one of these dinners next to this lady that was a professor of biology face. She had a doctorate, so we'll call her you had a smart conversation. Yeah. It was one of those. Interesting smart conversations that I now have every once in a while. And although my wife is getting her doctorate, Tony. Okay. So plenty at home too. So anyway, but her her I started telling her that I had you know, how many kids you have a head for I told the last two were twins. And they said, yeah, I'm a twin also. And so she said that will all she got super fascinated and said that her background is Ginette has geneticist. So she twin Allah g they call that twin Allah. Gee, I I want to call it that. But I don't think that's what it's called. Twin Ozzie Ozzie. Right. But because she studies genetics goes about twins. It's one of the fascinating things. The first thing she said to me, I want to tell you something fascinating. It was like mom was their own son. She goes, we still don't know she's talking in the in the proper we as far as we all of the super smart geneticists out, there don't know what what causes identical twins really don't know the cause of identical twins. He said we know that fraternal twins. We know how that happens as far as. The splitting things or no sorry. Not the explaining. That's happens with identical twins, but with fraternal twins. She said that we know what sort of that. There is some genetics involved is what they're so that we know that can get passed down. She said that it is a wise tell that it's a multi. It's every other generation like that. Yeah. You. Said that right, right. 'cause I'd always heard it from from Russ who's my father in law who is a twin. He was always like it skips a generation, and that's why you have twins. It's not really because Tom it's because of me, so we three other LA. I know and this what got me in that story. Okay. So we in my family, we have three generations. Like, I said so jen's dad is a twin. And he's fraternal unite Tony are twins. I don't know if you know that been I had twins. So I was telling her so when I've always heard is that that that Emonali might twin daughters? They I had been told by another biology person that actually one of this lady students told me this she she said that eminently have a fifty percent chance of having twins because they're they're they're twins. They're Gad is twin and their grandfathers twin, but the fascinating thing. And I still don't know if this part is true is she had said, but lexin Ansley the other non twins within our family. They have up to eighty percent chance of having twins even higher their sisters are twins. They're bad and their grandfathers. So it's like there's more sort of. Genetics rushing into them. That's the t- factor. You know, what I think we should write a book since all kind of theoretical really knows. We could ride a Bancroft brothers book on how twins come to be. I say we we invent something called the tea factor. It's just like the x factor and stuff like the X men and create our own Jeanne. And we'll explain this to the world. We'll call the bankrupt, gene. Of course. Right. It'll be made up facts because we've already been told by a professional that they have no idea. So we can make up whatever we want. It gives us liberty. That's love freedom. I know I love science. Let's bring you back into. Let's so we grew up in Long Beach, California. We always say that we were straight outta Compton. Can you can you elaborate on that? Well, that's close. But you were born in paramount. I mean, we lived in paramount when you were first. Babies, and then I I moved to north Long Beach..

"Art, finally in this episode, the Bancroft brothers interview, the one that started at all their mother Corey Krizman tells him in bearing stories and gives her thoughts on supporting an artist child or children in this case. And now, here's the Bancroft brothers air and welcome back to the Bancroft brothers animation podcast. I just wanna do it all day long. We we might do it all day long podcasts. Let us do this all day long. Tony. Got to be on. Yes. Right. Feel it feel it getting gates. I wanna talk you now about Mason. It's lose around the name. Why don't men and we saw rap whatsoever. But that was like early rap that was like vintage. Yes. But it wasn't even as cool as the BC boys. Anyway. Where the Bancroft beastie boys? Anyway. Yeah. Thanks everybody for coming back and join us on the Bancroft brothers animation podcast. If you don't know us, this is Tony, and I'm Tom Bancroft. So I'm not a Nashville and Tony's in LA. California. And we're twin animators worked at Disney for many many years, and we still are in the animation industry plugging away. We love to talk about animation and our passions for it. And just about you know, how we got to become artists to sometimes like today's episode. This is going to be a fine where we're going to get there in just a second. But I did want to shout four mermaid summer may. Is that hashtag Tony that I created about three years ago? I think this will be our fourth mermaid this year. Live really need to research that but I created by accident about three years ago. What I did a drawing of two mermaids teenage mermaids that original ones not aerial. And they were talking on their shell phones. Hashtag mermaid. And and it just it blew up. It went some viral. And then I ended up in one of the comments sections. I think on Facebook saying, oh, I should just draw a month's worth of mermaids that would be fun. And and I was serious. Okay. This would be a fun thing to do. I was kinda like join rates, and then somebody in the comments and giving somebody else credit, although I don't know who they are. They said, oh, and you could call it may and do it in. May it wasn't even your ideal which that's what I'm hearing. Well, I told you I accidentally stumbled into it. I already said that Stanley took credit for it. But here's the deal. Tony I followed up on that. Reginald drying that started it. So. Yeah, I think I can claim it. Hey, it's all yours, man. I'm just saying Dame the name I had a little help on. But. Yeah. So it's become a drawing event, I want everybody listening. This an artist to take part. What is your drawing berm aid every day in may? It's that simple. It's called mermaid. And the the idea is really not about drawing mermaids as much as just drawing every day. It's an encouraged or to to for those artists out there to sharpen pencils and dry day and get better in the month may well, that's what I love, Tom. It's it is an artist challenge. And so it's it's great to have those ink Tober, of course, as one that a lot of artists. No. And I've been involved with that over the years, and I love participating in Tober, but mermaids really fun because liking Tober you do a lot of prompts, right? So artists can actually have a prompt. If they kind of don't know what to draw that day. Yeah. If you got a mermaid dot com. That's my website for that. And it has all the prompts for this year. So you're hearing this. I think you'll be hearing this in about early may. So but go onto the mermaid dot com, the official prompts. You don't have to use those you can create your own prompts or just draw..

"Little bit about what we're talking about with the introvert extrovert thing, and Tom have to get more into another hash it out soon and get deeper into some of our own ranson, raves or or just, you know, things that are things that we are truths about ourselves that we've discovered that'll be fun. But I see on social media all the time. And it really hurts me. I guess I feel for people because I see certain artists and cartoonists animators characters honors and they talk about being an introvert, and almost like, it's pathetic pathetic thing, and they feel like that. It's their their crutch to bear kind of thing. Like, it's almost like. I was born in Butte beauty, and I have a tale. Oh my gosh. You know, my my whole life is ruined. Because of this. It's not that people. You don't have to look at introvert this what I want you to take away being an introvert extrovert d the one his negative. Neither one is. Right. Neither one is better. It's what you do with it. Okay. We've talked a lot about ourselves. We've talked about Pete doctor. We've got I there's a ton of examples of superstar extroverts and introverts that have made changes and made differences in this world. Because of they understood that energy that they got from how they were. They understood who they were. And they put to great use don't be afraid of who you are embrace it. And because people want they want to know you. That's really what we're trying to do is as humans were making connections. Always and what we do on this podcast, Tom. And I and what you. Guys thrive on whether you know it or not is stories, right? And we're at the center of our old stories, and what you guys to take hold of that and claim that you're the hero of your own story. Go out and be creative and make something make a difference. Yeah. And. I mean, you ended with make a difference to that kind of. 'cause I don't know if we all need to. I don't know. I don't know if we all need to make a difference. If that kind of builds it up to this a whole new subject, I'm. Wrap up. I'm sorry. But I will say this just to add to that very slightly is we live in a in the internet world now. And what's great about that? They're well one of many bad things. One of the good things about it is we're world. Now, we're all introverts and away an introverts can now be celebrated and be out there. But not be out there. I can live in my little studio here and drawn Ben post stuff on Instagram and get reactions that I never would have gotten twenty years ago ten years ago, and and be able to be out in the world. And like you're saying, maybe even make a change. So I love that about the world we live in I do too.

"So that's one that we want to get out there. And I'd like to do that either as a live thing or at least the video versions too. So yeah, we're we're adding to top by a pro for sure. So that's that answer. So we'll see maybe more than this this year. What is the question? You guys get tired of being asked. I got one. I got one that's one. Okay. So you're like a twin and stuff identical twins and. Like somebody punched your brother right now, which you totally like feel it. That's like an elementary school. We have that one. Since I I'm serious. I just got asked that like last week. I mean, that's still happens from adults. It's that it was a dull really really think it's like people stupid people. It's people they just want to make twins as like, you're such an alien thing. There's like two of you. That's so weird. They went to put it on this pedestal that it's like freaky weird. And like dig into pedestal. I yeah. But it's just like what did you do? Not know anything. Are you the same person that calls atomization animations, plural? Come on low blow. I know that was like half of our listeners. My gosh. Sorry about that everybody. That was Tony Bancroft that just said that Tom. I'm sorry. Twenty eighteen over video games. Getting real watch out podcast is going awry, what's the question of here. I'm gonna go. Yeah. With with probably the the second one that we both here. The most I'm guessing which is to draw and it's my dreamed. We're get Disney. Do you have any tips on how to get into Disney? Okay. Just like. That's so hard. I mean, like that's like okay now, I'm going to type of book back to you. You know? And that's why bother and I know there's listeners that are going Tom your jerk for saying that like all those are dreamers that just wanted to have some guidance. And I can't that that here's the point. One is okay. What people don't understand? And I do think that this is worth going into just a little deeper. Tony. I'm sorry. What people don't understand is that getting into Disney isn't just a dream. It's it's it's a it's like a in Olympia and feet, right? And I'm not patting ourselves on the back. We got in there by accident. I don't know. But it worked out. It was good time. Right. But but especially now, but even back then, but especially now with the competition of the whole world being able to basically get in there if they wanted to write because the internet they have access now. It is like in Olympia feet. And that's what I really do. Try and get back to them and say, look, it's like you're asking Michael Phelps? How do I become Olympic swimmer? Like you like he doesn't probably get those questions, I'm guessing because people don't go to the Olympic Olympia, go. Oh, that's so doable. How do I get?.

I was like, and I have I'm speaking for many people here there'd making Spiderman movies now animated. It's a notch down, right? I mean, I think we all think that I-. Here's why here's why I acquainted it. Tony equated it to the in. No fence that worked on these to the DC animated films that are kind of direct to video Batman and. Okay, S league in Greenland, and they're not they're their TV level, right? We all know that this pretty much the same people, and and that have made the TV series, which are awesome for TV series love him. But they're not feature films. Right. And saw I'm seeing this animated Spiderman going, okay, it's gonna be that sir, directed DVD level. But in a feature film, you know, right? And that's what I quoted it to so far. If you're in the theater, what was it like, what was that experience credits? Roll just solemn AVI mining loan. Right. Hold mine. Blowed best movie Tony of the year for me. Best animated film in a long time. And I'm putting it up there. Tony with Pixar and Disney films. Now, totally different kind of movie. Lot of Pixar. Disney films are a little bit more precise Centric and musical. And all that. And I still love those, you know, got four girls, and he didn't I I'm sure I would still love those movies. But this is this is action comedy is more like going to see the avengers. It really it on that level. I hear you. And it's because I think it was fulfilling on so many different levels the music the sound if you're a sound designer at all checkout Spiderman into the spotter vers o. My gosh. There's so many elements and levels that this thing says succeeds on. Animation performance and style production design modeling, oh my gosh. The character design alone was phenomenal. I there's so many things that you could say about this movie, but even down to the sound design. There was some revolutionary new sound effects that were created just for this production. I don't want to give away. Anything just go. Check it out and listen with both ears open. And here's the thing for me to Tom..

"I mean has got signed that contract after that seems Bill would have called you with that. That's what Jeff did. Yeah. That's what Jeffrey. Suggest the flip the flip side of that was with got a call from Michael Eisner? Who was in Paris at the time when he was told to call me, and he's he said, I hear you're one of our, you know, animators in I should talk to you. And it was not going to call. You've done or who you are. But they told me I guess you're thinking about don't leave. All right. We love you. You're really important. Say that like, and we've kind of mentioned this past podcast, but Jeffrey at that time. Yeah. It was sort of vindictive kind of move. He was trying to get. Best people, actually almost anybody. Like, I literally got a call from Jeffrey personally, and he had me come over to a hotel in Florida. And and showed me the opening the, you know, the the musical sequence with the basket going down, the from prison beach prince Egypt, and you'd already we're already there, of course, at that time. So this second wave of him trying to come back and clean out Disney, Florida. Yeah. I to although I didn't get jaaz storyboards sketches, but he used that that Stevens you've probably heard this since then but us quite a bit to try and get animators over there. He knew that we were all worst. He did he did it with me. And then it worked so. Well, those like, yeah, let's do that. I went over there. I got I got the call, you know, and he's like this. I would Disney just asked me to Kodak Disney's Milan. So I had this offer on the table to direct at Disney and Jeffrey's like so badly wanted to whatever, you know, stick it to Disney that he called me up through my agent said, you know, my agent, you gotta take everybody's taking meetings over there with Geoffrey you got to go over there and take a meeting with jeffer-. He wants to offer you something. He's voice sounds like you're Jeff people like my businessman guy. Anyway. So I go over there. And sure enough Geoffrey, you know, since me down, Tony Bancroft. It's so great to have you over here. You did you did all these characters? And you're right. He knew he knew everything that I had done at Disney. And so all of a sudden, you don't feel invisible I feel I feel respected I feel special and he's talking me up and who knocks on the door, but Steven Spielberg, and he's like, Stephen. Hey, Tony have you met Steven Spielberg? No wanna coincidence. Sounds like actor. Stephen still. Made. This is Jody bang, boom. Stephen was very nice, and he talked about how his son's favorite characters. We're Puma tum on. Sorry, not revealed. But luckily. You told you anyway, that's what he said to me. I find out I go back to Disney on telling all the guys all my friends and stuff all I met in this Steven Spielberg came in. And it was awesome. And they're like, oh, yeah. We had the same thing. It was knock knock Steven Spielberg. I love your characters draw picture for my son. But yeah, by that point, he was out of storeboard panel. So I didn't take the job. I didn't go over there. But. I love that. I love Jeff. So he kind of he knew he knew us. So well, he he really did. He really knew how to an animator and manipulate us. And I was I was actually thinking about it until the fact he was like, you really didn't have anything to offer me in the way that was equal to direct Milan. Ultimately, I was like I think I'll stick with Disney for. Yeah. It wasn't. Yeah. Wasn't a hard that we were also being used as chess pieces and pawns in the game. But you know, I wasn't complaining. Many people you ended. That's cool. The star animator over there for many years. I mean, you were you became the lead actor on prince of Egypt..
